A Janus Speaks


Janus is the Roman god of gates and doors (ianua), beginnings and endings, and hence represented with a double-faced head, each looking in opposite directions. He was worshipped at the beginning of the harvest time, planting, marriage, birth, and other types of beginnings, especially the beginnings of important events in a person’s life. Janus also represents the transition between primitive life and civilization, between the countryside and the city, peace and war, and the growing-up of young people.

Two heads….two mouths…..two distinct versions of the same story….

Our dutiful president, Donald J. Trump, is a Janus.

After the announcement of the special counsel for this Russian thingy Trump made two distinct statements……or was it Tweets?

Wednesday night after the announcement……

The White House issued a short statement Wednesday night from the president, which predicted the special counsel appointed to investigate President Trump’s administration and Russian meddling in the 2016 election, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, will “confirm what we already know.”

“As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know – there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity,” Mr. Trump said in a statement issued by the White House. “I look forward to this matter concluding quickly. In the meantime, I will never stop fighting for the people and the issues that matter most to the future of our country.”

After I heard this statement in the news…….my first thought was who the Hell wrote that?  I bet it was not Trump……

I think I was right in my assumption….why?

Come Wednesday evening…..Trump took to Twitter….his normal media for expression and Tweeted……

This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!

6:52 AM – 18 May 2017

With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!

Why does his White House crew bother to make him, Trump, sound like a statesman….for he craps all over their well intended BS the first chance he gets……..

What a waste!

  1. So what? With all the illegal acts committed during the administration of G.W. Bush there was never a special counsel either …. big deal! It’s all about taking down Trump! Plain and simple!

      1. I don’t know what you are talking about. There have probably been a lot of crimes committed by American Politicians that were never investigated or prosecuted so why is it so all-fired important now?

      2. Of course they committed crimes but this is politics and they must play their games….your boy needs to stay silent and let this play out…..he has been making it worse.

    1. He needs to quit talking and turn to policies and let a lawyer of his choice handle the situation….but he will not do that…it is more important to strike back on Twitter….bone head move

      1. History will determine whether his use of Twitter is a “Bone Head” move or not and as to “He needs to quit talking..” well all I can say is “If he needs to quit talking then we have to give serious consideration to scrapping the First Amendment altogether.” What we really need is for the sore losing Lefties who can’t admit defeat in an election to face reality.

      2. That is bullshit you know what I mean….he sends his boys out to tell the tale then he Tweets a contradiction….he is only hurting himself…has nothing to do with the 1sr and everything to do with commonsense.

      3. Plenty of people out there who would love to shut him up and that goes to the idea of restricting his free speech.

      4. He can talk all he wants…..but all the king’s men need to be on the same page…..its not that difficult

      5. It must be difficult because I do not see where any of the few most recent presidents have been able to organize what you are suggesting here. The Congress has been dysfunctional totally ever since the beginning of the Bush Era.

      6. If his people are not on the same page then fire, he knows how to do that, and replace them with people he trusts which maybe difficult because he trust only himself

  2. I am still on the fence about his Twitter obsession. On one hand, it is undignified and decidedly un-statesmanlike. But on the other, it enables him to connect with ordinary people in a way nobody has ever done before. It may be crazy, but it might also be genius.
    Best wishes, Pete.
