Is Whitaker Fixing Mueller?

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast number, OMG 201!!! It is the “Is Whitaker Fixing Mueller?” edition of the show with your fixed hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg on the east coast and AI guy Mike Stopa on the west coast. This week we bring you two stories – national and local – that are shaking things up in this ol’ U.S. of A. we got going here. First, Matt Whitaker, the new acting A.G. has been in the job for, oh, a week and he is already at the center of the storm. To be fair to him, it’s nothing Whitaker has done in the new job that has people in a tizzy – rather, it is what he might do which is put the kabosh on the Mueller investigation…or at least undermine it. But heck Mueller needs a little kick in the pants once in a while too, doesn’t he? Don’t we all?

Then, taking the local and blazoning its lessons onto the national: new Connecticut governor-elect Ned Lamont is, gasp, *for* putting tolls on CT highways in contradistinction to the things he said in the campaign (he would “focus” on the big, interstate trucks). We are shocked! Seriously, are Democrats a bunch of thirsty leeches or what? When do people realize that throwing money at social problems creates social-problem-bureaucracies and social-problem entrenched clients? TANSTAAFL.

Our shower thoughts this week are dedicated to Thanksgiving cuisine and the holiday traditions. Our beautiful hidden gem this week is Enya’s Caribbean Blue. Enjoy!

    “Show me the man, and I’ll find you the crime“ is attributed to Stalin’s secret police chief (and child molester on a massive scale) Lavrenti Beria.

    Stalin was looking for charges, no matter how threadbare, to justify killing all potential rivals in the Communist Party, as well as anybody he didn’t like.

    Whittaker Chambers reported that Soviet spies Alger and Priscilla Hiss were typical of Western leftists in that, when he questioned the charges, they loyally swallowed all of them, in spite of their Ivy League educations. (Or should we make that, because of?)
