Food for thought.



Professor Joshua Miesel, who coordinates the criminology and justice studies at HSU will join me to discuss the criminal law related propositions 57, 62, 64, and 66 on Thursday Night Talk at 7:00 p.m. this week. We may discuss other election news as well.

First we have the Comey letter of Friday, timed and written perfectly to exact the most possible damage against Clinton with absolutely no evidence or information.  This happening against a long standing FBI policy not to publicly comment on an investigation of a candidate within 60 days of an election – with the caveat that there is actually no investigation of Clinton pending – contrary to the headlines nothing was “reopened.”

Then a few days later, a long dormant FBI Twitter account mysteriously lights up with a file dump of an investigation involving Clinton which was closed 15 years ago.

Meanwhile, the FBI saw fit to, sort of, acquit Trump with regard to Russian connections.

And now, the FBI lets known that it’s investigating an old fundraiser controversy involving Florida Democratic Senate candidate Patrick Murphy who’s in a fairly close race with Marco Rubio, as reports come in that Democrats are doing very well getting the early vote out in that state.  Of course there is no evidence that Murphy knew or had any knowledge of hypothetical wrongdoings.  But the FBI was kind enough to let the public know that they’re investigating something.

I just don’t recall the FBI being in so many election-related headlines a week before a national election.

Update:  Weiner’s alleged victim has written a scathing open letter to Comey.


My worthwhile radio competition tomorrow night. But you can listen to either their show or my TNT (or both) show on the archives of each.  Fortunately, in January my TNT show moves to the second Thursday of the month.

From Bob and Julia:

“Make a note to join hosts Julia Minton and Bob Froehlich on the Thursday, Nov. 3rd edition of “Thinking Clearly”, from 7-8 pm as we unravel the differences between Critical Thinking, Rhetoric and Propaganda. Help us build a Critical Thinking Community! Listener call-ins on the topic will start around 7:30.
