Atom And Evil?

Did the former president really take nuclear secrets out of the White House and tote them down to Mar-a-Lago? Couldn’t he have just taken his golf clubs and a box full of MAGA ball caps and left it at that?

From The New York Times:

“…investigators had been concerned about material from what the government calls “special access programs,” a designation that is typically reserved for extremely sensitive operations carried out by the United States abroad or for closely held technologies and capabilities.

Of course, if Merrrick and his Merry Men are correct and the materials that 45 failed to return to the National Archives do contain nuclear secrets, this still will not be enough to dissuade folks like yesterday’s MAGA Martyr Du Jour in Ohio to foment civil war. Meanwhile, a reminder that the couple above, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, were executed in 1953 after being convicted of selling nuclear secrets and other classified material to the Ruskies. They were the first American citizens to be executed for espionage during peacetime… but really, should they be the last?

TFG came out on Truth Social yesterday calling on the government to “release the documents now!” referring to the warrant and the inventory. Trouble is, the DOJ is not allowed to release that without a court order (Garland is seeking one), while Agent Orange has a copy of both and could “release the documents” any time he damn well pleases. Are we saying he’s being less than forthright? Shocker.

Our feel: The DOJ does not go snooping around Kremlin West unless it knows both exactly what it is looking for and where to find it (they’ve been talking to people, as you know). So they’re likely to have uncovered it. At that point, of course, Donnie Brass Co. (and Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity and Brian Kilmeade and Jesse Watters) will simply claim that the evidence was planted. Because you’ve got tor reassure Cult 45 that their divine leader is always in the right… while stumping for the far right.

Donald and his cronies are playing checkers while Merrick Garland and Chris Wray are playing chess (that’s the problem with super villains; they’re not as smart, and certainly not as careful, as they’re made out to be in film and TV… Verbil Kent and the dude from Se7en, both Kevin Spacey creations, were far smarter than Spacey). We’re getting closer to check mate —Donnie has two pawns and maybe one heresy left— and as the walls close in around him, we think of this scene from True Detective:


The Cincinnati Reds (the franchise itself an homage to baseball’s first professional team, the Cincinnati Red Stockings, from 1869) and the Chicago Cubs (who began play in 1870 as the Chicago White Stockings…yes, we know, but that’s not a typo… for once, Micah) took part in the 2nd annual “Field of Dreams” game last night. Cubs won, 4-2. Nothing’s ever going to top Aaron Judge emerging from the corn in right center field as Kevin Costner waited for him and other players just beyond where the second baseman would play in last year’s inaugural game, but this is the best ideal MLB has had in awhile, so kudos for that.

Then again, give them time. We’re sure they’ll find a way to ruin it. Oh, what’s that you say?
