As regular readers know, Rudy shot off to Ukraine in the midst of the impeachment hearings on these exact issues, to manipulate even more American policy and politics. It is smply astounding.
One can only hope that Parnas’s information, the stuff he’s turning over to the FBI and Congress, leads to an arrest soon. Someone is paying for Rudy’s trips, someone who wants Rudy screwing all this up. That person is likely rooted in Russia, somehow, and the money must be well-covered, at least till this point. Parnas will tell the FBI, and they can act accordingly, we hope.
But until that time, it is criminal that Secretary Pompeo is allowing all this to happen. Pompeo is responsible for all official foreign affairs and policy, yet doing absolutely nothing, in public at least.
Pompeo is also risking everything. He may not know it, or at least may not deeply appreciate it. But he is getting called out.
I find it highly inappropriate that a private citizen, Mr. Giuliani, is leading his own personal, highly-partisan investigation into U.S. assistance to Ukraine. @SecPompeo, take charge ! Why are you allowing OUR diplomacy to be privatized like this? Show some swagger !

So Friday got here, somehow. This week flew by for me. I had too much to do, a birthday on Wednesday, and navigating some dad stuff that wasn’t easy. So the week is a blur.
Friday is big for that group of a few dozen rabid readers of the “six” that are involved in critiquing choices in email and twitter, I sure wouldn’t want to disappoint a chance to question the offerings. 🙂 I love the feedback, even when you tastes are questionable. Smile.
Your Friday pick-six.
WHAT YOU SHOULD PICK TO CLICK
Alright, normally we go with alt-rock from the best decade for new music, the 90s. Change of pace here, pure beauty.
Freddy Jones Band: In a Daydream, some of the best singing and guitar architecture you’ll hear.
BEST FOOTBALL GAME OF THE WEEKEND
Going out west, home, for the Pac 12 championship, where my former employer, the University of Utah, vies for a spot in the national championship four.
#5 Utah v. #13 Oregon
TONIGHT: 7:00 p.m. Central, ABC
BRAINFOOD TO IMPRESS NICOLE
Really pushing the envelope this week. We tackle the theory of everything that haunted Einstein. Einstein died with a notebook in his lap, equations all over the page. He never got it, and no one else has, either, to this day.
BEST THING ON THE INTERNET
Short one. Turns out, flat earthers ain’t that smart. They’re struggling with the concept of “round.”

BEST THING ON THE INTERNET THAT INVOLVES A DOG
Going with puppies is a wayyy too easy. But wow, puppies easily overheat and love their stomachs on cool surfaces. My old dog did this type of thing when a baby. I cannot resist.
“Puppy walk” – and zooms! – he’s beat.

Bonus dogs. Because it’s important to realize that animals kill for food, not fun, like people. Weiner dogs may look like hot dogs but this lion knows they’re not a meal.

YOUR WEEKLY REAL PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT BARTLETT
Bartlett explains why he’s not going to compromise a budget for government involvement in religion.
Thanks for all your support, Zoomers. We couldn’t do it without you. And thanks for putting up with my self-indulgent Fridays. But politics all the time is no way to live.
