For the previously unstated purpose of oppugning internet censorship, and the fact online search engines are becoming less of a trustworthy source when attempting to research past articles, a catalog of links was started by this blogger on Mayday 2018; and based upon the belief that transitions are roads to revelations.
Keep in mind the following May denouements occurred in addition to those previously delineated during the first “Seven Days in May”.
The ensuing disclosures occurred between the dates of May 8-31, 2018 and have been organized into categories for the reader’s convenience:

In his statement to the press, Trump said the filmmaker was, indeed, “treated very unfairly by our government”.
Capitalism & Marxism

Stormy Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, claimed that President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen received $500,000 from a company controlled by a Russian oligarch which deposited the funds into an account for a company also used to pay off the adult film actress.

The President, Lawyers, Spies, & Media Lies
45.) In response to some early and erroneous comments made Trump’s newly conscripted personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, in early May, Trump said “great guy” Rudy would soon get his facts straight before Giuliani did, indeed, clarify his earlier statements.

52.) Rudy Giuliani claimed that Robert Mueller admitted he couldn’t legally indict President Trump.
53.) Evidence surfaced that the FBI spied on Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump through a secret intelligence source and the Department of Justice covered up the misdeeds.

58.) In an attempt to minimize any blowback from the forthcoming Inspector General’s report, FBI Officials admitted they spied on Donald Trump’s Presidential Campaign by means of a secret surveillance initiative code named “Crossfire Hurricane”. Of course, instead of factually reporting on what the President of the United States has called the biggest American political scandal since Watergate, the New York Times continued to spin, enable, and downplay the government’s crimes as “missteps”, congressional and presidential allegations of “bias”, and “sound-bite-sized accusations” of “conspiracy” .
59.) In spite of the New York Times’ Error-Ridden Defense Of FBI Spying On Trump Campaign: The spying was acknowledged; as was the fear of the forthcoming Inspector General’s report and the admitted lack of evidence of Russian collusion. The multiple, and seemingly intentional, errors in the Times’ article appeared to have been used to downplay not only the crimes perpetrated by the FBI and DoJ, but, ultimately, those of Hillary Clinton and perhaps, even, Former President Barack Hussein Obama. The National Review’s, Andrew McCarthy put it this way :
The scandal is that the FBI, lacking the incriminating evidence needed to justify opening a criminal investigation of the Trump campaign, decided to open a counterintelligence investigation. With the blessing of the Obama White House, they took the powers that enable our government to spy on foreign adversaries and used them to spy on Americans — Americans who just happened to be their political adversaries.
The Times averts its eyes from this point — although if a Republican administration tried this sort of thing on a Democratic candidate, it would be the only point.

62.) As former Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, peddled his new book “Facts and Fears” on how Russia definitely hacked the 2016 Presidential Election, the Wall Street Journal asked: “Why does a former intelligence chief make claims he can’t back up?”.
63.) The Trump campaign mole who was activated in the FBI spy-op was outed as Stefan Halper, a 73-year-old University of Cambridge professor who was also a CIA and MI6 asset, while some claimed there was more than one mole in Trump’s campaign.
64.) In response to Trump’s ordering a DoJ investigation into the deep state’s subversive infiltration of his 2016 Presidential Campaign, former CIA Director John Brennan appealed to House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to stop the investigation.
65.) Trump returned volley by Tweeting that former CIA Director John Brennan was a “disgrace”who was “largely responsible for the destruction of American’s faith in the Intelligence Community and in some people at the top of the FBI”.

It was revealed that the mole in Trump’s campaign, Steven Halper, was paid over $1 million by the Obama administration including $411,575 that was made in two payments, and had a start date of September 26, 2016. That date was three days after a Yahoo News article by Michael Isikoff on Trump aide, Carter Page, that the FBI later used as supporting evidence in a FISA warrant application for Page.
67.) Former Trump aide, Michael Caputo, revealed a second spy, claiming to be from the NSA, may have attempted to infiltrate Trump’s 2016 Presidential Campaign by offering Hillary Clinton’s missing e-mails.
68.) Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) ordered the DoJ turn over unredacted text messages between FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page because they may actually indicate the Crossfire Hurricane Spygate fiasco was run by Obama’s White House. Grassley’s deadline was June 6, 2018.
69.) FBI agents expressed their desire for Congress to issue them subpoenas so they could reveal the crimes of former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
70.) As political leftists, and their mockingbird media, continued to accuse President Trump of interfering with their coup to replace him, the Wall Street Journal continued to inform Americans about the REAL constitutional crisis of SPYGATE.
71.) As President Donald Trump lamented the “young and beautiful lives ruined” by the phony Russian scandal, former Trump campaign aide, Carter Page, described to the New York Timeshow his life was indeed ruined.
72.) Trump accused Mueller’s team of meddling in the midterm elections and the democrats of collusion.
73.) Florida Senator, Marco Rubio, asserted the FBI was not spying on Trump, but the agents were, instead, “doing their jobs to protect America”.
74.) In “stark contrast to Trump’s public assertions”, and in apparent accord with James Clapper’s previous statements, South Carolina Republican, Trey Gowdy, claimed the “FBI acted properly” and denied any evidence that the “FBI planted spies” in Trump’s 2016 Presidential Campaign.
75.) The New York Times claimed Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, was a key witness for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of President Trump for obstruction of justice.
76.) Trump Tweeted that he wished “he didn’t pick Sessions as attorney general”.
77.) It was reported that Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, ran up a $16 million tab in the Trump-Russia Investigation, and has budgeted another $10 million for 2019.

87.) In Oklahoma City, lives were saved on May 24, 2018 when a good guy with a gun killed a bad guy with a gun who had just murdered two females.
88.) Former Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul claimed that “Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) were teaming up with Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to ram through one of the “worst nationwide gun confiscation schemes ever devised”.

Fortunately for the network, however, the show was cancelled due to racism after Roseanne Barr sent out a Tweet conflating former Obama advisor, Valerie Jarrett, to the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes. Barr apologized for her comments and, in spite of widespread public support for ABC’s swift retaliation to her thoughtcrime, there were those who questioned the doublethink of the Hollywood left.
93.) The day after Rosanne Barr was fired from ABC, comedian and host of the TBS cable network’s “Full Frontal”, Samantha Bee, called Ivanka Trump a “feckless cunt” in her show’s monologue; for which she later apologized.

Every journey begins with a single step, and sketches are drawn via one impression upon another. Outlines are adumbrated as silhouettes appear increasingly recognizable. Like dots on a matrix, patterns emerge and trends become apparent.
In other words, time reveals everything.
In the above transitional revelations, and according to this blogger, 40 could be considered making America (and/or the world) great again, with 8 as being neutral or questionable, and 75 as representing the ever-accelerating slide into Orwellian hell. Of course, from the view of any political leftist, these numbers would be roughly inverted. This is because, in today’s world, heroes, criminals, facts, causation, and outcomes, are defined in the minds of the beholders.
Nonetheless, the journey continues.
So whether we rise to surmount lofty mountain peaks, travel through narrow passageways and broad valleys, or descend upon the inevitable road to ruin, fasten your seat belts. It’s June.
