Mueller: Volume II, Section III.B.

If you memorize nothing else from the Mueller Report, try out these 24 words on the "no-obstruction" bleaters:

"We concluded that Congress can validly regulate the President's exercise of official duties to prohibit actions motivated by a corrupt intent to obstruct justice." Vol. II, page 169.

Then, of course, all the details where Twitler obstructed justice 10 times.

Later, we get the famous "it also does not exonerate him" line. Put that with the above sentence, and it's pretty fucking simple, even to a mouth-breathing Trumpist, though the Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level Readability scale puts it at 12.69, so that could be a problem.

Clearly stated: "Drumpf is not above the law, he appears to have obstructed justice, and Congress can do something about it."

If Mueller would simply state those words in front of a camera, we could flip the entire conversation.

Award-winning media adviser resigns after censorship, conflict with school principal

From the Student Press Law Center

TEXAS — An adviser at a high school in suburban Houston has left her job after the principal pulled stories, yearbook spreads and repeatedly questioned her judgment.

Katie Moreno, the media adviser at Seven Lakes High School in Katy, Texas, decided to turn in her resignation after detailing months of censorship and after what her students called “bullying” tactics from the school principal, Kerri Finnesand.

There are no robust protections against prior restraint or censorship for student journalists in Texas. Seven Lakes High School’s district policy leaves it up to individual principals to decide how to operate school publications, and this past year, Finnesand decided to enact tighter control.

Finnesand did not respond to a request for comment. The request was forwarded to Justin Graham, general counsel for the school district.

Texas' legislature is mulling a "New Voices" act that would guarantee public school students' their First Amendment rights.

Here's a link for that.

Mueller: The Motion Picture (Casting suggestions needed)

I get this feeling we need someone to produce a feature-length motion picture that dramatizes the Mueller Report, both volumes, no embellishments, just the facts.

Most of the country doesn't read the great reporting done by stellar journalists at the NY Times, the Washington Post and other places that have uncovered almost everything we know about the Mueller report and other investigations into Trump's crimes. Worse, many of those non-readers also believe such great American journalists are purveyors of lies.

So give them what they want — a movie with high production values, but at low cost and released before the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3, 2020.

Mueller, of course, will be played by DeNiro. But we need someone less comical than Alec Baldwin to play Dump Sr.

Your ideas?
