Some claims in the media today, in reference to the James Comey, Clinton e-mail server fiasco, that a President can’t fire the FBI Director is patently FALSE. That the usually impeccable Andrea Mitchell would get that wrong on “Meet the Press” (on October 30, 2016) pretty amazing.

Of course a president can remove the FBI Director. Otherwise we could end up in some bad situations.

Ironically and interestingly the ONLY FBI Director to have been fired by a President was by a President Clinton! (That was ‘William S. Sessions’ in July 1993).

Think – Today: Where Does The Expression “Point Blank” Come From?

by Anura Guruge

a4-stickers-paste-professional-portable-targetHow did we get the expression “Point Blank”?


Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.


Yesterday’s ‘Think’: James Comey, the FBI Director, according to V.P. Joe Biden (talking on TV, Saturday, October 29, 2016), is a Republican. It was George W. Bush that first appointed him the United States Deputy Attorney General in December 2003. It is, however, true that it was Obama, in September 2013, that made him FBI Director — mainly so that he could get a nomination passed through the Republican Senate.

220px-comey-fbi-portraitJames Comey, the FBI Director, was very much in the new on October 28, 2016, when 11-days ahead of the General Election he announced that the FBI was reopening the Hillary Clinton e-mail server investigation. Is he a Republican or Democrat? Did that cross your mind?

Yesterday’s ‘Think’: Humans have known that the Earth year was pretty close to 365-days since around 4,000 B.C. The ancient Egyptians determined this 365-day year after carefully observing and noting where ‘Sirius‘, the Dog Star, rose every morning over a very long period of years. They saw a repetition happening most often after 365 days — sometimes 366 days.
