I would like to present to you the reasons for good lord that we as Americans need to offer blessings for Bobby Mueller.
I do realize his name is Robert. However, I recently saw Tim Weiner (pronounced “whiner” not “wheener” like this dude below) on Rachel Maddow’s show refer to Mr. Mueller as Bobby, so I’m going with that. It seems more relatable to me to refer to this potential American hero using this likeable nickname.
Mr. Weiner is a former New York Times reporter, author, winner of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award. I think it’s fair to go with the assumption he knows Bobby on a personal level.
I write this post as a relatively well informed (politically) American, whose faith, often informed by my chosen religious denomination of the United Church of Christ, can’t help itself from co-mingling with my politics. Yes, my faith and my politics are colliding.
Not like the way a baseball bat collides with that dumb pinata from your kids birthday party that simply will not break open and supply you with all the sugar needed to line the pockets of your neighborhood dentist for eons. More like this:
I am not telling you to pray to God. Or Yahweh, El, Allah, Dude, or any of the other monikers your religion dictates they be called. But if any of those are your jam, by all means go for it.
I am by no means even directing you to pray. I believe atheists are good people too.
I am encouraging you to send this man positive energy, as you personally see fit. It might be in the form of meditating on a positive message for him along Boulder Creek on a cloudless August morn. It might be in the form of baking cookies that you deliver to him in person (I am going to be in D.C. soon). It might be making a giant, lit up, lawn sign that says “Find the Truth Bobby”. Whatever floats your boat.
My point is, this man needs all the good juju we can collectively send his way.
Fact is, he’s got a long, hard road ahead of him in his search for the truth. And regardless of where your political alliances reside, all of us as Americans will benefit from the full truth being brought to life.
So here’s my go at a prayer for Bobby:
Dear Infinite Spirit,
Are you there, Creator? It’s me, Real Rhonda. No, this is not going to be me lamenting about my impending menopause. As you are aware, I am fully ensconced in AARP land here in Colorado with my Hubs. And I believe in you.
As you undoubtedly are aware, the United States is in turmoil. The
man narcissistic bully con-man serving as POTUS has turned everything upside down. He has recklessly pitted Americans against each other with his non-inclusive rhetoric and agenda. He appears hell-bent on taking this great country of ours down in flames. Most importantly, it appears he, along with his cadre of reprehensibles, have not only worked in cahoots with the Russian government to obtain the power they now enjoy, they are also likely benefitting financially from their evil endeavors.
Bobby Mueller needs your guidance, your strength, and your grace.
Please provide him these tools so that America can survive this assault on our democracy and begin to thrive again.
Please be present for him as he hires staff to help him with this investigation.
Please be present for him as he prepares the questions to be asked of those he subpoenas.
Please provide him with the physical, mental, and spiritual energy he will need for however long it takes for him to find the whole truth and present it to the American people.
Please provide him with the fortitude to successfully prosecute all of the individuals who are found to have broken the law.
Please, God, bless America.
Can I get an amen?
