The Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded this year’s Nobel Peace Prize to U.S. President Barack Obama, citing “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples,” as well as his “work for a world without nuclear weapons.”

 
However, it is rumored that the official citation, when held up to a light, actually
 
1.      Commends Obama for not being George W. Bush
2.      Commends the American people for rejecting the presidential candidate who, in the most important decision of his life, chose Sarah Palin to be his vice-presidential running mate
3.      Commends Obama for pledging to engage in the sort of global diplomacy that was considered the norm for presidents of both parties before the presidency of George W. Bush
4.      Expresses the hope that the award will make Obama feel guilty enough to turn his fine words into action.

On September 21, 1998, President Bill Clinton testified on video in response to charges that he had lied about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky and had attempted to obstruct justice. This testimony, which lasted more than four hours, is still available on the internet. In a space of 21 years, we went from a videotaped interview that was released to the public; to an in-person interview without a video, audio or written record; to no in-person interview whatsoever.   read more

Blueprint for Impeachment—The Mueller Report

Without using the word “impeachment,” Mueller and his team bluntly present the evidence that Trump has committed multiple impeachable offenses. Mueller considers eleven possible areas of obstruction.

Omar al-Bashir, World’s Worst Dictator, Overthrown at Last

Back in 2006, I wrote a book called Tyrants: The World’s 20 Worst Living Dictators. I gave the dubious honor of first place to Omar al-Bashir of Sudan. Now, 13 years later, Bashir has finally been overthrown. Unfortunately, the man who led the military coup that overthrew Bashir is General Awad ibn Ouf, who, since 2006, has been financially sanctioned by the U.S. government for his role in the genocidal attacks carried out in the Darfur region of Sudan.   read more
