Yes, “Do your own research.”  Look up “war crime” and “war criminal.”  Vladimir Putin is a war criminal, by any and all definitions.

And it was just ten days ago that the former president of the United States called Putin a “genius,” and “smart,” and a “peacekeeper,” and that what he was doing was “wonderful.” And up until eight days ago his Cult was expressing full support for Russia and in some cases chanting, “Putin! Putin! Putin!”

What more do you need? Do you really have that little respect for your own intelligence? Because you are done insulting ours.

The House Select Committee has filed a court document stating there is evidence that Donald Trump engaged in a criminal conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election. The committee did that because Donald Trump engaged in a criminal conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election.

How can I, and you, and we, know that? Because Trump has said so. It’s all there. It’s on tape. Documents corroborate it. And his dumbass lawyer wasn’t even smart enough to cover his tracks. He wrote it all down. He prepared a Power Point presentation.

Layup. Finger-roll.

To be clear, this is not a criminal indictment. That will be up to others, including U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland.

But this is what yesterday’s action does mean. The committee is going to get all of Eastman’s emails. And it means that Eastman’s “attorney-client privilege” claim is going to get laughed off as the frivolous absurdity that it is. There is no “attorney-client privilege” to protect lawyers who urge their clients to engage in criminal activity.

The law said they had to know it was criminal activity to be convicted. They DID know it was criminal activity.

Again, how do we know? Because there have already been a parade of witnesses who have testified they TOLD Trump and Eastman that their plan was illegal and had no Constitutional validity whatsoever.

Which now leads us directly to proof that Donald Trump incited that armed insurrection on January 6, 2021, and then failed to do a single thing to stop it for three hours and eight minutes.

How much more do you need? Please have some self-respect and stop insulting your own intelligence.

Because you are done insulting ours.

Paul's Bio

I clearly have the attention span of your median fruit fly.Look! Airplane!

Sorry. I’m back.

It’s both a curse and a blessing. I’ve never bought this stuff about, “He who dies with the most toys wins.” But I do think that a wide range of life experiences helps us grow as people, and helps us better relate to other people. I’ve been fortunate. And I am beyond grateful.

I show up on time. I go like hell. I’m a good listener. I hold myself accountable. I own my mistakes. And I have a natural and an insatiable curiosity. I’m never afraid to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t. But then I try to find out.

The flip side is I’m a lousy ballroom dancer and my clothes sometimes fit me funny.

Stuff matters to me. I care. But while I take that stuff seriously, I try hard to never take myself seriously. As a result, I have sometimes been told, “Paul, it’s hard to tell when you’re serious and when you’re just having some fun. Which is it? Serious or fun?”

My answer is “yes.” But I think that is a legitimate criticism. I promise I’m going to work on that.

This has been the quickest and strangest half-century I’ve ever experienced. During that period, I’ve been afforded amazing opportunities in news and sports journalism across all platforms. I have taught wonderful students at the high school and collegiate level. Always, I learned more from them than they did from me. I’ve been a high school administrator. I spent ten seasons as a high school varsity football coach. I’ve been an advertising executive. I’ve hosted nationally syndicated television entertainment shows. In maybe the biggest honor I ever received, I was selected by NASA to be “Chet The Astronaut” for the “Land The Shuttle” simulator at Space Center Houston. (All I can say there, is “Do as I say, not as I do.” I put that thing in the Everglades more often than not.) Most recently, I just wrapped up a decade as a television news director, during which time our teams distinguished themselves in holding the powerful accountable, achieving both critical and ratings success.

What does all that mean? It means I am profoundly grateful. It also means I’m ready for “next.” So here we are. Radically Rational. It’s an idea I woke up with in 2017. I scribbled “Radically Rational” on a piece of notebook paper and used a magnet to stick it on our refrigerator. I saw it every day, and it just would not leave me alone.

I am second in charge at Radically Rational, LLC. My wife, Jo (also known as BB), is the president. Clearly, I have failed in my attempt to sleep my way to the top of this organization.

I hope you will learn that I’m loyal as a Labrador. But I will admit that this doggie can bite every now and then. My promise to you? I will show up on time. I will go like hell. I will listen to you earnestly and attentively. I will hold myself accountable. I will never be the least bit hesitant to say, “I don’t know,” when I don’t.

But then I’ll try to find out. Let’s do it.
