I don’t much care for talking about the special prosecutor, that guy who is supposedly investigating Trump campaign’s collusion with the Russians to steal the election from poor Hillary Clinton. The charge is so absurd. Yet the news media and the Democrats keep going at it, and they have gotten their special prosecutor, and that fellow has impaneled a grand jury. So to express my disgust I have left a few comments on anti-Trump blogs, blogs hosted by folks who are at least willing to engage in polite discussion.

I hope you find the posts listed above interesting. Ditto for my comments.
What puzzles me most about the anti-Trump crowd? In America, our laws assume you are innocent until proven guilty. Also, we don’t investigate people until we have evidence of a crime, and sneaky suspicions based primarily on the fact we don’t like someone do not constitute evidence of a crime. Nevertheless, this special prosecutor is going after Trump when there is no reason to believe — no credible evidence — anyone colluded the Russians except perhaps the Democrats. Here is a sampling of recent stories related to that dossier credited with getting the investigation into Trump started.

The howl is to get Trump. Because there is no howl from the news media to get any Democrats, there is no special prosecutor going after any of them. No. Instead, we have a legal team, many of whom contributed to H. Clinton’s presidential campaign, tasked with an unlimited budget to get Trump.
Therefore, Trump has a conundrum. Within the executive branch, the branch of government we elected Trump to lead, Trump has a team of investigators tasked to dig up dirt on him, to make him look guilty of something. He could fire them, but that creates a problem. If he fires the special prosecutor, his opponents will use the firing itself as “proof” of his guilt. Alternatively, Trump could prove his innocence, but that is logically impossible. That’s why we assume innocence until we have proof of guilt.
So what should we conclude? Thanks to this misuse of the special prosecutor law we have created a situation where we are punishing our leader BECAUSE he won the election. Would that be happening to H. Clinton if she had won? Does anyone believe H. Clinton’s Attorney General would have recused him or herself? The likes of Lorreta Lynch or Eric Holder? Seriously?
Because Donald Trump actually is an outsider, the political establishment is doing whatever takes to either get rid of him or to render him ineffective. That much is obvious.
And what is the most pathetic thing about this whole thing? When Trump tweets and rejects the abuse he is getting, his opponents and even some of his supposed allies blame him for doing so. That is just sick. Trump is not Jesus. He is not our sacrificial lamb. We did not elect him to die willingly for our sins. He just one of us. Instead of giving up, he is fighting back. Sometimes Trump says or tweets things we wish he had not, but for the most part his is an example the rest of us ought to emulate. If we want to save this country for our children’s sake, then we need to convince the folks in Washington D.C. to operate again within the constraints laid out by our Constitution. Some of those people won’t cooperate. So we are going to have to fire them, and they will not like it. Are we going to desist because just because they complain more elegantly Trump? Don’t they still need to go?
Consider the location of the wealthiest counties is this nation: List of highest-income counties in the United States and The 10 Richest Counties In America 2017. It is no accident that many wealthy people live close to Washington D.C. People are making their fortunes off of the people who pay taxes. To avoid living in D.C. proper these well-paid civil servants and government contractors may commute a long distance, but that does not stop them.
We have a $20 trillion deficit. We have more government than we can afford. It is time to help Trump get the monkey — Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor — off his back. It is time we supported Trump and helped him fire some people, and we should encourage him to start with Mueller.
