The much anticipated Mueller Report is finally out, and its four page summary by Attorney General (AG) William Barr seems to have stirred as much controversy as anything to do with Trump usually does.

Ellis, the III, no-less, who sentenced Manafort to 47 months, for crimes which required a jail sentence somewhere between 19 to 24 years.

Conceived by his supposed wunderkind son-in-law Jared Kushner, Trump is visiting the homes of the three greatest religions on Earth: Saudi Arabia home to Islam, then on to Israel, home to Judaism and Christianity, and then to the Vatican City to meet the Pope and then to Brussels to a meeting of NATO. At some point in his campaign or even during the early days of his Presidency, Trump has offended every single religion th
The most memorable and distinguishing trait of the Trump Presidency, so far, has been the blatant lying that has shocked the American politicians (no mean feat), the press and the public. The rest of the World has been mesmerized by the spectacle Trump has made of the ‘Great’ America since his campaign and his election, by his ridiculous statements and behavior, that has made America seem more like the most dysfunctional ‘Banana Republic’ with corrupt, tragic and sadly comica
