Like a string of Chinese firecrackers the media provides viewers, listeners, and readers with almost daily accounts of misdemeanors, crimes, and investigations of government officials. Unfortunately, that’s where they all end. We don’t learn of arrests, trials, or convictions, and we are left waiting for resolution. For example, the media has described accounts of General Michael Flynn said to be illegal. Why has General Flynn not been arrested and brought before a grand jury to determine if the media’s assertions are true and an indictment leading to a trial? This is only one example. The same question could be asked of Jared Kushner, those congressmen on an investigating committee who refused to answer questions, and of course Donald Trump. There is no resolution. Even the crowd in the Place de la Concord had the satisfaction of seeing the accused meet the guillotine. Supposedly the President cannot be charged or tried for high crimes or misdemeanors, but could be impeached by a Senate with sufficient testicular material.  In extremis could the Supreme Court pull the plug on the Executive Administration? Could the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs arrest the Commander in Chief on charges if incompetance, insanity or treason? To use a cliché, our country in a like a ship on the sea without a man at the helm, helplessly floundering to adverse winds and storms subject to any enemy. A madman is leading our country. We desperately need a qualified person at the helm of our nation, and we need one soon. Very soon.
