FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe said, "There's all kinds of things that surprise us in each one of these events. That's the one in this one, and we are not there yet." The organization’s number two guy said the agency has a lot of work to do as it relates to the mass shooting carried out this week in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Investigators have found no criminal record, no penchant for violence or mental illness. Authorities continue to probe the life of the man who killed 59 concertgoers and injured hundreds.

The White House has suggested the president former employers should apologize for reporting that Rex Tillerson referred to him over the summer as a “moron”. 

NBC, the network that carries The Apprentice said an apology will not happen.  The network cited a half dozen witnesses who are said to have heard the Secretary of State’s comments.  The report also said Tillerson considered leaving his post –an assertion that he denies. 

Hallie Jackson, the White House Chief correspondent said, “It’s safe to say NBC News will not be issuing an apology to America.”

The petulant president said via social media, “NBC news is #FakeNews and more dishonest than even CNN. They are a disgrace to good reporting. No wonder their news ratings are way down!”

ISIL claims responsibility for Las Vegas Shooting

Stephan Paddock

Who was Stephan Paddock? One thing we know is that he was a multimillionaire real estate investor who had no real political affiliations apparent.  He lived in a two-bedroom home about 90 minutes from the strip two years ago for nearly $400,000.  He also owned a second home near Reno, Nevada. 

His Florida based brother described him as a heavy gambler with no known religious or political affiliation and was not a gun guy.

ISIL is claiming responsibility for Paddocks actions and US authorities are denying the claims.   Some are pointing to racism as a reason for the denial.  Several pounds of ammonium nitrate were found in his car at the Mandalay Hotel along with 23 guns.  At least one was equipped with a bumper stock allowing easy conversion from semi to full automatic.

N. Tru Bass: U.S. Morality clause should stop Violence--Laws Can't

Magnificent Seven

Scribe:  N. Tru Bass

For hundreds of years’ citizens of the United States have allowed Black people in this country to be terrorized.  It came from institutions like the Concerned Citizens Council and the Ku Klux Klan and local police departments to a hushed citizenry.  Many Americans who would never participate in the activity themselves didn’t lift a finger or say a word to quell the wrongs.

That is wrong.

I remember as a young man I enjoyed westerns, you know the ones shot in technicolor of cowboys, brothel’s and gunfights. During that old fashioned programming, virtues were almost always discussed.   For those of you who are not familiar.  A western is a genre of television and film set in the latter part of the 19th century in the American west.

N. Tru Bass: White House corruption Abounds -- Here is why

White House

Does the United States Government represent its citizenry?

Elaine Duke the acting head of Homeland Security said, on Thursday, "I am very satisfied. I know it's a hard storm to recover from but the amount of progress that's been made, and I really would appreciate any support that we get. I know it is really a good news story in terms of our ability to reach people and the limited number of deaths that have taken place in such a devastating hurricane." This statement came on the heels of Puerto Rico, the U.S. state suffered for weeks without food, water and electricity. Braving flash floods and the notorious heat associated with post hurricane voids. I ask you does this sound like a person with empathy for the unrequited victims?

Former first lady Michelle Obama in a rare public appearance has lambasted women who voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 Presidential election.

While wishing the Trump family success she said during the Q&A session of a speech directed to a group at Inbound, a marketing and sales conference in Boston, MA on Wednesday. Results of the election yielded just 54% of women voted for Mrs Clinton, who lost versus 52% of white women voted for the republican candidate for president. After providing statistical information she said, "Well, to me that just says, you don't like your voice. You like the thing you're told to like."

She was clear on her message as she is in the middle of penning a book about her time in the White House and political life. She spoke of the past election in a introspective way while speaking of staying true to her “authentic self.”

The big election in Alabama has sent the wrong man to Washington.  Luther Strange,64, when down in smoke and flames as the Steve Bannon backed Roy Moore, now we know who the pulls the Klan’s coat tails. 

While Mr. Trump is proud to make statements about his followers loving him, the real grand poohbah has shown his hand in Alabama’s Senate race during the primary.  It appears that Stephen Bannon voice is a bit louder than the former reality television performer turned president with both men having a horse I the race for the vacant spot left by Jeff Sessions when he was tapped for the Federal job, US Attorney.  General. 

Bannon is and American media executive, political manipulator and chairman of the Derisive Breitbart News.  He also served a short time in the White House as its Chief Strategist (a made up position).

And they all Fall

And they all Fall

The political climate in the United States of American is at an all-time fevered pitch.   In a post Barack Obama era the political ideology of race is deeper than the skin. 

Over the weekend, the President did his level best to be divisive through attempting to put pressure on team owners to force players to stand for the national anthem and asking the owners to fire players for not taking the stance.   

Kneeling during the anthem became a thing when former Super Bowl quarterback Colin Kapernick, sat during a preseason game to bring attention to a visible rash of American police officers gunning down unarmed African American men, women and children without prosecution.   It seems to be an unopposable position.  But, not in today’s North America.
