Roger Stone’s hero is Richard Nixon. He has a shrine of Nixon memorabilia in his house. He’s fond of flashing Nixon’s victory sign — at the most inappropriate moments.
My first 4 years of writing Inspection I had two professors in two different colleges use the same description for my column: Doctor English and Mr. Mocko. Steve Mocko’s comment was phrased slightly different than the following, but pretty much the same as what Doctor English said: “I don’t always agree with you, but I […]
When it comes to the Bighorn park proposal, Alberta Environment Minister Shannon Phillips continues to struggle with the facts. She clearly hasn’t learned her lesson from last month’s fiasco, when opposition MLAs and members of the public called on Phillips to resign from cabinet after she was caught in her own web of untruths regarding […]
As President Donald Trump seeks a nuclear deal with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next week in Vietnam, some in Seoul are wondering if the fate of Washington’s decades-long military alliance with South Korea could be at stake.

The UK is trying very hard to prevent Shamima Begum, the British teen who joined ISIS four years ago, from returning home. It started the process of revoking her citizenship earlier this week, but it’s a complicated process as international law prevents a nation from leaving someone stateless. Begum’s family has told the UK government […]

When I saw that this movie was available on Netflix and commented that I had never seen in; shit hit the fan. By the manner my friend yelled “YOU’VE NEVER SEEN ANGUS THONGS” at me, it was easy enough to guess I had missed a generational rite of passage. Ah well, better late than never. Fourteen-year-old […]
A sound order from White v. Chenenko, No. 1:18-cv-12108 (D. Mass. Jan. 2, 2019) (Magistrate Judge M. Page Kelley): The motion to seal 8 is DENIED.

One is already in jail, another is headed there and Stone narrowly escaped with his liberty Thursday but was gagged by a judge he had threatened on Instagram.
The White House line, whenever one of the President’s men goes down, is that none of it has anything to do with Trump.
That Roger Stone was nowhere to be seen in a Washington courtroom.
Stone has been walking the line, and crossing over it, for decades. “They say I’m Mr. Trump’s pit bull, that I’m his right-hand man,” Cohen once said.
Before he was snared by Mueller, Manafort was an uber-lobbyist and the epitome of Washington’s swamp culture, exporting the dark arts he learned as a GOP operative to several unsavory political characters abroad.
He worked for pro-Russian politicians in Ukraine, in just one of the contacts that have drawn the interest of Mueller.
He will be sentenced in Washington, where he pleaded guilty to conspiracy and broke a plea deal with Mueller, on March 13.
In his most recent court appearance last month, he had to ask the judge for permission to wear a suit instead of his dark green prison duds.
As should be obvious from my review of season two of Narcos and the first two installments of a series of articles on films about the Sicilian mafia that I hope to continue before long, I have a keen interest in the class dimensions of organized crime and how popular culture reflects it. Not only was Ernest […]

Engaging with them, even briefly, has given me a newfound respect for those who centuries ago took […]
