Was Michael Cohen testifying before Congress today or just putting on a show scripted by the democrats?

The answer to that question is both.

Which really makes this whole thing an absolute sham, just like the rest of the Mueller investigation.

During questioning, President Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, admitted that he had worked with democrat congressmen Adam Schiff of California and Elijah Cummings of Maryland in preparation for the hearings.

Wait…, what?!

Is that even legal?

I know it’s unethical!

The double standard allowed here by the “biased, liberal, fake news media” is just incredible.

I guess the democrats just wanted to make sure they got the biggest bang for their buck out of Mr. Cohen.

It is well known that Mr. Schiff and Mr. Cummings are Trump haters through and through, as well as being politicians that wouldn’t know the truth if they tripped over it.

Even though Cohen regurgitated his liberal directed lines well, he obviously has learned his lesson regarding lying under oath.

“Questions have been raised about whether I know of direct evidence that Mr. Trump or his campaign colluded with Russia,” Cohen testified.  “I do not. I want to be clear. But, I have my suspicions.”

Well, you go on and have all of the suspicions you want Mike.  All of your suspicions and a buck will get you a cup of coffee.

According to Brooke Singman of Fox News, “Cohen hearing opens with fireworks as Republicans move to postpone testimony.”

“After former Trump attorney Michael Cohen is sworn in before the House Oversight and Reform Committee, Rep. Mark Meadows moved to postpone the hearing because written testimony, evidence was not received 24 hours in advance.”

“House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., led the bid to delay Cohen’s testimony, saying President Trump’s former lawyer and his legal team ignored rules calling for documents and records to be available at least 24 hours in advance.”

“Cohen’s testimony was turned over the night before the hearing, while documents were made available the morning of the hearing.”

“Committee rules require witnesses to provide their testimony to Congress 24 hours in advance of a hearing. We know that rule was intentionally violated, as an adviser of Mr. Cohen’s felt the need to go on CNN last night and explicitly state his suggestion that Mr. Cohen ‘hold his statement’ as long as possible ‘so the other side can’t chew it up,’” Meadows said. ‘Lo and behold, we didn’t get Mr. Cohen’s statement till 11:00 p.m. last night and didn’t receive any of the ‘evidence’ until this morning.’”

“He added, ‘Today’s hearing is in explicit violation of the rules. It should be postponed immediately.’”

“Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, also argued that the evidence and exhibits were not given to the minority staff at a reasonable time.”

‘“CNN had it before we did.  They had the exhibits before we did,’ Jordan said, later adding that ‘this is the first time a convicted perjurer has been brought back to be a star witness in a hearing.’”

“After a recorded vote, the motion failed, and the hearing proceeded.”

Are the democrats just incapable of following any types of rules whatsoever?

It sure appears that way.

While at the same time the republicans are always held to the strictest letter of the law.

The behavior of the “biased, liberal, fake news media” is just so blatantly unfair.  They are unabashed co-conspirators in the liberal narrative.

“Cohen went on to testify that Trump is a ‘racist, a con man, and a cheat.’”

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

Cohen also testified that, “Trump did not directly tell me to lie.”

You just figured that out on your own, huh?

Cohen also admitted to recording some of his conversations with Donald Trump, when Trump was his client, without Trump’s knowledge.

With friends, and lawyers, like that, who needs enemies?!

“Cohen also is testifying that Trump knew that adviser Roger Stone was reaching out to WikiLeaks concerning the publication of stolen Democratic National Committee emails but apparently will not claim Trump directed those communications.”

So what exactly is he saying here?  I don’t get it.  So what?

“In August, Cohen pleaded guilty to five counts of tax evasion, one count of making false statements to a financial institution, one count of willfully causing an unlawful corporate contribution, and one count of making an excessive campaign contribution.”

Congratulations Mr. Mueller.  None of this has anything to do with “Russian collusion,” nor does it implicate President Trump in anything or in any way.

WINNING!

The question isn’t “are you intelligent?”  It’s “how are you “intelligent?”

The theory of multiple intelligences was started back in 1983 by Dr. Howard Gardner, a professor of education at Harvard University.

He felt that the older beliefs about intelligence, based on I.Q. testing, were not really fair and far too limited.

Instead, Dr. Gardner proposed eight different types of intelligences to represent a wider range of interests in children and adults. These intelligences are:

Our schools typically focus most of their attention on linguistic (reading and writing) and mathematical intelligence.  For students who happen to be naturally talented in these areas, school is fun because they are successful.  For those of us who are more talented in other areas, school can be frustrating, difficult and/or boring.

It would be nice if we could place equal attention on individuals who show gifts in the other intelligences: the artists, architects, tradespeople, musicians, naturalists (nature, animals and or plants), designers, dancers, therapists, salespeople, entrepreneurs, and many others who enrich the world in which we live…, but that just is not the case.

Unfortunately, many students who have these gifts don’t receive much reinforcement or encouragement in school.  Many of these students, in fact, end up being labeled “learning disabled,” having “ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder,” or simple as underachievers, when their unique ways of thinking and learning aren’t addressed by a heavily tilted reading/writing and mathematical curriculum and classroom.

Every teacher out there has been made aware of the theory of multiple intelligences.  But the theory of multiple intelligences and how we address multiple intelligences does not translate well when we bump up against everyday reality, which has limited money, limited time, limited teacher resources, and large class sizes.

The challenge is to change our educational way of doing things so that each child has the opportunity to learn in ways that go along with their unique minds, ways of thinking, talents and interests.

The I.Q. test was developed in 1900 by a French psychologist, Alfred Binet.  The “I.Q” test does have some value, but it does not take into account many things regarding intelligence and talents that are not easily quantifiable.

As far as our schools are concerned, “Just because everyone is ‘treated the same’ does not mean ‘everyone is being treated fairly.’”
