I have been a candidate for office, so I guess you could call me a recovering politician. These are my thoughts, right or wrong; they are mine!
Robert Mueller is proof that the modern Conservative movement in America is a complete con game. On one have we have a man that is a decorated Marine Vietnam Vet, a dedicated family man, a man that has had a stellar and outstanding career for truth, justice, and the American Way. On the other we have a narcissistic braggart, who has been married four times, brags about sexual conquests, never really has been known for his religious faith, declared bankruptcy more times that we could count and has been in industries that are notorious for their underworld connections.
Now guess which one the Religious right considers to be the paragon of virtue?
Care to pick who the Tea Party says is the real American?
So when the party of “family values” had a chance to stand on the side of the poster boy of everything they swear they do…
They picked Cadet Bonespurs over the Last Untouchable…
Night and Day
The two men are entirely different. I for one wanted to have an idea of what might be causing the right to attack Mueller and rabidly defend Donald Trump.
Robert Mueller is almost too good to be true. I have read his bio stats from multiple sites and have come to one conclusion. This guy is one of Elliot Ness’s Untouchables. He should not exist. In an age where you have infidelity as commonplace, he has been married to his High School sweetheart since 1966 with two daughters and three granddaughters. If that wasn’t enough, he has a daughter with Spina Bifida. His wife teaches special education. He grew up a Presbyterian and later became an Episcopalian.
Donald Trump, on the other hand, is on wife three or four (I lost count) he has only found religion lately, and that is more in line with his run for the Presidency than anything else. His children are the poster kids of wealth and privilege, showing that money does not buy class, that wealth does not necessarily lead to sophistication, and that owning a gold toilet still makes you a pile of crap.
Then came the era of Vietnam. Robert Mueller went to South Vietnam in July 1968. There as a rifle platoon leader he earned the Bronze Star with ‘V’ distinction for combat valor for rescuing a wounded Marine under enemy fire during an ambush that saw half of his platoon become casualties. In April 1969, he received an enemy gunshot wound in the thigh, recovered, and returned to lead his platoon until June 1969. For his service in and during the Vietnam War, his military decorations and awards include the Bronze Star Medal with Combat “V,” Purple Heart Medal, two Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medals with Combat “V,” Combat Action Ribbon. The National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal with three service stars, Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal, and Parachutist Badge.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump at the same time went from a 6 foot 2-inch picture of health that was playing football, tennis, and squash; while taking up golf, to a person with a deferment for bone spurs. Bone spurs which seemed to correct themselves after the Vietnam War magically and never required surgery.
Donald Trump had more of an expensive hobby that never panned out than a job. He borrowed money from his dad, and it went downhill from there. Trump’s business acumen was either for jumping into a craze after it was already on the downside or just poor management. The only thing that Trump was ever any good at was selling his name and his mystique. He is the perennial carnival barker, better at creating a buzz then declaring bankruptcy.
I would go into more detail about Trump’s “career,” but let’s be honest, between his bragging and the press covering it, we have heard it all.
Mueller is the modern day Untouchable. He first worked in the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California in San Francisco, where he rose to be chief of the criminal division, and in 1982, he moved to Boston to work in the office of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts as Assistant United States Attorney. There he investigated and prosecuted significant financial fraud, terrorism, and public corruption cases, as well as narcotics conspiracies and international money launderers.
In 1989, he served in the United States Department of Justice as an assistant to Attorney General Dick Thornburgh and as acting Deputy Attorney General. The following year he took charge of its criminal division. During his tenure, he oversaw prosecutions including that of Panamanian leader Manuel Noriega, the Pan Am Flight 103 (Lockerbie bombing) case, and of the Gambino crime family boss John Gotti.
The Senate unanimously confirmed Mueller as FBI director on August 2, 2001, voting 98–0 in favor of his appointment. He had previously served as acting deputy attorney general of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) for several months before officially becoming the FBI director on September 4, 2001, just one week before the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.
As director, Mueller also barred FBI personnel from participating in enhanced interrogations with the CIA. At a dinner, Mueller defended an attorney (Thomas Wilner) who had been attacked for his role in protecting Kuwaiti detainees. Mueller stood up, raised his glass, and said, “I toast Tom Wilner. He’s doing what an American should.”
However, the White House pushed back, encouraging more vigorous methods of pursuing and interrogating terror suspects. When Bush confronted Mueller to ask him to round up more terrorists in the U.S., Mueller responded, saying, “If they [suspects] don’t commit a crime, it would be difficult to identify and isolate” them. Vice President Dick Cheney objected, by saying, “That’s just not good enough. We’re hearing this too much from the FBI.”
In May 2011, President Barack Obama asked Mueller to continue at the helm of the FBI for two additional years beyond his standard 10-year term, which would have expired on September 4, 2011. The Senate approved this request on July 27, 2011. On September 4, 2013, Mueller was replaced by James Comey.
Mueller has assembled what is arguably the best team of forensic investigators, legal minds, and prosecutors America can offer. I keep expecting to see Sean Connery and Kevin Costner walk by the cameras on the news. These are men and women that if Trump is guilty, then they will find out.
And when they do, there will be no doubt of it.
However, should Trump be innocent of those charges, Mueller will leave no doubt of that either.
The real love for Trump. The real hate for Mueller
Look at Mueller. Family man. Religious. War Hero. Law Enforcement. He is universally known and respected for doing the right thing. The man is a living comic book hero. A Federal Agent without a cape.
Look at Trump. Sleazy, He never met a sin he didn’t like.
However, if you were to put them side by side and then blind test them based on what the Republican base considers the ideal person.
Mueller wins EVERY time.
So why do they hate him? His reputation is one that if he found no evidence, he would have just said it and left. But he has, and he is after Trump.
They are defending Trump because he has exposed their con for what it is.
Family Values are thinly disguising hate, bigotry and a sense of entitlement.
They love Trump because he hates what they hate. They cheer when he attacks Hispanics and talks about a Wall. They cheer when he makes the “shithole” comment about African nations. He has become their lightning rod, their modern-day Fuehrer to tell them that everything is going to be all right. That he is going to “Make America Great Again.”
He speaks to their fears, their bigotries, and their hates. He lets them know that it is okay to discriminate, that minorities should be neither seen nor heard.
That hate Mueller because of two reasons. One, Mueller is taking down their GroppenFuehrer; and, two, he stands for every virtue that America should, and they are ashamed they were too cowardly to do so.
It’s Mueller Time.
