The President is a vindictive and mean man. For a man in his 70’s, he appears not to have learned what goes around, comes around. All in due course.
Andrew McCabe has been an outstanding public servant with the FBI for 21 years. Achieved the number 3 position in the FBI hierarchy. Served as Acting Attorney General for a time.
For whatever reason, Trump does not like McCabe. Might have some doing with failing to fire Mueller.
Trump has been threatening to fire McCabe for several months. McCabe announced his retirement. It becomes effective sunday. The word is Trump may have McCabe fired today or tomorrow. So doing would result in McCabe losing all his retirement benefits.
The charge being alleged against McCabe a bullshit one.
Mr. President, back off. You have beaten and tarnished the man and his reputation. Enough is enough.
I enjoy the Justice Building Blog. Today’s a spoof. Titled The Last Days of Rex Tillerson. One portion sub-titled White House Switchboard Operators Resign. An excerpt: “You’ve reached the best White House switchboard. A switchboard no one has ever seen one as good. If you are a Cabinet member seeking to resign, press one; if you represent a porn star and want to have your client give an interview, press two; if you are the Attorney General of the United States, you suck and your time is coming pal.”
Spent the whole day home with the air conditioning people. Three of them. Installed a completely new air conditioning/heating system.
Everything worked last night! I had heat! Even better, the purchase and installation cost me nothing. I am a tenant.
By the time the air conditioning people left, it was too late for me to make the Sons and Daughters of Italy dinner meeting. Called Catherine who is also a member and said let’s go to the Chart Room for drink.
Kevin and Holly at the round table. My Wampsville buddy Ted Kane at the bar.
I wanted to get home by 9 to watch the Syracuse/Arizona game. Catherine and I had dinner at the Pier House’s ONE Duval. The Pier House’s fancy restaurant. Sits where the Wine Galley used to be.
Enjoyed a filet mignon. One of the best I have had in years!
Rushed Catherine home by 9. Hurried to my house in time for the start of the game.
Syracuse won 60-56. With 3 minutes to go, I did not think Syracuse would win. They had a great final 1.5 minutes.
Onward Syracuse! I do not know who we will be playing next and when.
The U.S. Navy maintains an air base 5 miles from where I live. Boca Chica. Huge. Busy at one time. Now not so busy. Used primarily for training.
Two U.S. Navy aviators died yesterday in the waters off Boca Chica. They were the crew of a F-18 Super Hornet fighter jet attempting a landing at Boca Chica. The plane crashed in the ocean. The crew was able to eject beforehand. Rescued. However both were declared dead when they arrived at the hospital.
No further details are available.
The National Students Walkout yesterday.
I am proud of these high school students. They may accomplish what adults have not.
Thousands walked. No disturbances. Those who spoke were articulate and intelligent.
The one word used which moved me was “hunted.” Many said they were not comfortable being “hunted.”
Today is March 15. Known also as the Ides of March. The day in 44 B.C. that Julius Caesar was assassinated. Shakespeare’s famous words recalled through the centuries: “Et tu, Brute.”
Those who deceive are thought of today as Brutus’. A close friend who performs a despicable act upon a friend.
Have to move my ass. A noon doctor’s visit.
Enjoy your day!
