    Episode 25: Crisis Management ... The boys look at how the Government and Media deal with tragedies, natural and man-made. Not much in the way of notes folks. If you're interested, look at wikipedia for stories on the Huricanes and school shootings ... that can be depressing.

     

    All I can say is  be vigilant, listen to everything you hear, and make your own mind up over what you're being told.

    Episode 4: Comey is Out! The boys discuss the firing of the FBI Director and all things political this week. Exerpts from Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein's letter to President Trump below. The entire letter can be found here.  

    Highlights

    The Director was wrong to usurp the Attorney General's authority on July 5, 2016, and announce his conclusion that the case should be closed without prosecution. Compounding the error, the Director ignored another longstanding principle: we do not hold press conferences to release derogatory information about the subject of a declined criminal investigation - Deputy AG Rosenstein
