Mike's Blog Round Up
September 12, 2017

Thanks to Steve in Manhattan for subbing for me yesterday and for all of his blogpost picks during the past week


Matt Osborne in DeepStateNation offers us a deconcerting profile of the last Neo-Nazi standing (or cowering) in the Trump administration.

Big Bad Bald Bastard takes a stab at Facebook, America's premier home for BFFs and lots of Russian troll farms too!

Digby muses about CIA Director, Mike Pompeo, who's apparently a major Bible-thumper. So, yeah, I'll bet he always encourages his spooks to consider, "What would Jesus do?"

Allison Hantschell at First Draft has an awesome post about the lack of prominent left-wing media in America to which I can only respond, "And the more things change...."

And lastly, I know it's been a week since Walter Becker's death, but I still can't get one of his tunes out of my head. Here, it's your's.

Round-Up by patrickB who blogs at Bjork Report. You can follow patrickB on Twitter too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with For MBRU in the subject line).

Can you help us out?
