I was watching Political Kabuki Theater on Television, as James Comey was being questioned by a Congressional Hearing, which was hastily assembled to determine how the Director of the FBI could conclude that Hillary Clinton BROKE multiple Laws, but is somehow above reproach.
IT COMES DOWN TO THIS . . . I don’t want to hear any more approbations about what kind of a Stand-Up Guy James Comey is, and how his integrity is above and beyond question, because no one’s integrity is beyond question when dealing with the Highest Levels of National Security.
AND THE FACT THAT COMEY IS AN EXTREMELY accomplished Lawyer, who has held incredibly impressive positions in Government, does NOT give him a FREE RIDE, nor does it make him infallible, and nor does it remove any degree of his own personal opinion of his INTELLIGENCE in determining what should and should not be prosecuted.
I watched the interview from START to FINISH . . . which to me, made Comey’s decision to recommend to the Attorney General – NOT TO PROSECUTE Hillary Clinton, to be actually worse than I had originally thought.
The Insiders can’t get it . . . because they’re so insulated with their beliefs, that they’re the smartest people in the room, while everyone else is stupid, especially people with Old Fashioned Values, that no matter what proof or evidence is presented before them . . . just couldn’t be right, if it doesn’t fit their narrative.
I‘m not a Lawyer, but I’m also not an IDIOT. I have not spent years of my life studying the Law, nor did I ever represent someone in Court, other than defending my own PRINCIPLES and the RIGHTS of others before a Judge, with my own time, effort, and mostly my own money . . . so I don’t know all the many nuances of the Law . . .
BUT LET ME TELL YOU WHAT I DO KNOW . . . I know the difference between RIGHT & WRONG. And I know the difference between BS and OBFUSCATION. And what I witnessed watching this Hearing were two sides of the same coin.
1 – On one side . . . I heard all Republicans ask pertinent, respectful and non confrontational questions of James Comey, that not only needed to be asked . . . but out of all common sense and care for the truth, demanded to be answered.
2 – On the other side . . . I heard and saw all Democrats Kiss Comey’s Ass, reminding everyone how magnificent he is as the Director of the FBI, apologizing to him for being called before this Hearing, and thanking him for his incredible Service to Truth and Justice.
3 – And where the Republicans sought to seek a clear explanation, of how the Director of the FBI explained, how Hillary Clinton was in violation of a myriad of affronts to Justice and her position of Trust, yet . . . in virtually the same breath, Comey said that she was above prosecution, because of a lack of INTENT, even though INTENT is impossible to prove, and is never the yardstick in the pursuit of Justice . . . I sat stunned.
DO THE DEMOCRATS NOT CARE ABOUT TRUTH IN POLITICS? Do they not care that Hillary Clinton FLOUTED the RULES and REGULATIONS the LEFT aspire so much to promote at every venue, especially the REGULATIONS, such as those Hillary Clinton signed to obey and protect, breaking her OATH, even before becoming Secretary of State?
Do the Democrats not care that Hillary Clinton maintained an ILLEGAL Server on her property, in VIOLATION of the OATH she took not to do such a thing, which was unsecured, and managed by people without Security Clearance?
LYING TO THE PEOPLE IS NO BIG DEAL, since Politicians don’t know how NOT TO LIE TO THE PEOPLE . . . But, LYING to Congress, is a whole different Kettle of Fish, since that is a Jailable Offence, which in itself is a disgraceful display of a double standard, which shows an incredible disregard for the American people, whom they are sworn to serve . . . But I digress.
I don’t know how to fully square this circle, since everyone in Government should be interested in knowing the TRUTH, especially from the leaders of our Government(s), and SPECIFICALLY about the Woman who wants to be the President of the United States of America, the Commander-In-Chief of the American Military, and the Leader of the Free World.
Doesn’t it make SENSE to want to know as much as possible about the COMPETENCE, INTEGRITY and HONESTY of such a person? I WOULD THINK SO.
But evidently . . . this is not the case with the Democrat Members of Congress of the United States of America, which is more TROUBLING than just somewhat.
IT’S ALSO A REAL KICK BELOW THE BELT . . . to the American People, knowing – that not only is Hillary Clinton walking away from this ACT that would put, and has put LESSOR PEOPLE behind bars . . . but that all of her cohorts in this GROSS MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE, including her Insiders, whom if she wins the Presidency will be amongst her closest inner circle in the White House, ALSO RECEIVED GET OUT OF JAIL CARDS FREE.
IF COMEY DID NOTHING ELSE IN THIS FORUM . . . I believe the Director of the FBI REAFFIRMED, to all the people who have LOST TRUST in the Government, and in the Institutions of the Government, that they are 100% RIGHT.
ALSO – I truly believe that the KNUCKLEHEADS who love Hillary Clinton, no matter what, who are either too STUPID to understand, too LAZY to find out, and/or are too IGNORANT to want to know . . . that none of this will make a difference.
THAT SAID . . . I ALSO TRULY BELIEVE – that there are enough Americans who are NEITHER Republicans nor Trump fans, with a Working and Thinking Brain, who watched this Congressional Hearing, or will watch snippets of it, or who will hear about it through various means, who came away, or will come away not necessarily in favor of Trump, but sufficiently DISGUSTED with the LIES & DOUBLE STANDARDS, to either vote for Trump, vote for anyone else who is neither Trump nor Hilary Clinton, or not vote at all. AND THAT’S REALLY BAD NEWS FOR THE DEMOCRATS.
LORETTA LYNCH . . . America’s Top Prosecutor, has said repeatedly, same as James Comey, America’s Top Cop, that Justice is not enough, if there appears to be a question of the legitimate application of Justice.
And in this case . . . not only is there an Appearance of the Miscarriage of Justice at the Highest Level . . . there is virtually a guarantee that Justice was thrown to the wolves, since Comey’s contradictory analysis does not only make NO SENSE WHATSOEVER . . . but rather, it points to MALFEASANCE of the highest order.
Legally . . . Hillary Clinton and her Cadre of Cohorts “might” be off the hook. But politically, if the American voter is not so far gone down the road of IGNORANCE, I believe that this Performance of Comey has done Hillary Clinton and her CAMPAIGN-IN, in spite of how the LEFT and the LEFTIST Media will spin it.
I think that the majority of people . . . who still count themselves as Proud Americans, have had enough, and are more than willing to run these BAD ACTORS out of town at the point of pitchforks, tarred, feathered, and on a rail, which is exactly what they deserve.
I’m feeling more confident with every passing day.
