#ComeyHearing

I am not one for politics and told myself I would not involve Zelly & Ol Hem’s with political posts. This though, one can argue, isn’t necessarily about politics. It’s about history, live in the making.

One does not usually see a private citizen as a Senate hearing, but never say never. Ex-FBI Director James Comey, who served under three presidents in senior law enforcement positions, was fired by President Trump last month for possibly, though it’s looking more like “definitely” knowing too much about the Russian involvement in the 2016 US Presidential election.

Again, I am not political nor have a Political Science degree, but I am a history nerd. It’s been a long time since something with this scale of scandalous has caught the attention of the public.

There are many conspiracies wandering around if Trump silenced Comey prior to the hearing. Judging by Comey’s body language and his answers, he is providing his sincere honesty. His answers are a sigh of relief for it is clear cut and the truth, but at the same time troubling. Sure we won’t get the full, 100% information as he continuously mentions some topics should be saved for the classified hearing, but he isn’t giving BS. He’s providing everything he knows and even having a little fun as seen by his smiles when he and the Senate joke from time to time.

The whole thing is uneasy but sits well on the mind. It’s confusing but exciting and scary but full of bravery. I don’t know how else to explain it.

Watch the #ComeyHearing here with the New York Times.

Happy viewing and don’t forget to raise your cuvfefe glasses full of coffee (or vodka). Can’t wait until photos from the hearing circulate. Powerful images from a historic and troubling moment in time.

35 books that will change how you see the world | indy100

My friend John sent me this article from indy100 yesterday. I was surprised to know this was beyond books you would typically read in high school English class, listing works such as All Out War: The Full Story of How Brexit Sank Britain’s Political Class by Tim Shipman and The 9/11 Commission Report.

I was glad to know some of the books on my 30 for 3 Book Challenge made this list (i.e. Le Petit Prince, Anna Karenina and 1984). Not for bragging rights or to boast how cultured I am. That’s just stupid. I just like knowing that people also share the same opinion about these wonderful works (I have received much support from various coworkers when they discovered my journey through the 700+ page beast that is Anna Karenina).

Thoughts on the list? Agree? Disagree? Read any of the books or report? Comment below!
