I don’t even know what to say anymore. The U.S. Government has collapsed into complete Banana Republic status. It’s a free-for-all for those in position to use their position of power for personal gain. Hillary Clinton will go down in the annals as one of the most corrupt politicians in the history of the world. She’s the “Idi Amin” of U.S. politics.
It was announced today that Dept of Justice has closed its investigation of Hillary. For me that decision was telegraphed when Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton illegally. I doubt the DoJ even opened a formal investigation. These people could care less if the portion of the public that is paying attention is pissed off. No one will do anything about it and what would you do if you wanted to do something about it? Anyone who votes for Hillary is a complete moron. Anyone who votes, period, is a moron. Your vote does not matter.
My friend/colleague – John Titus, Best Evidence Productions – has written more commentary on the the planetary-sized political abortion called Washington, DC – enjoy:
The FBI’s announcement that it won’t recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton is not only a stunning repudiation of the rule of law, it’s a coronation of American royalty. The FBI told us that Hillary broke the law, but that it’s of no consequence because she, like a queen (or king), is above the law.
You don’t need to look beyond the four corners of the very FBI announcement that exonerates Clinton to see that she committed a crime carrying up to a 10-years sentence in prison. The FBI’s internal inconsistency—concluding that Clinton is above the very law that the FBI just finished showing that Clinton violated—is a glaring rejection of the rule of law, and a formal adoption of a legal system premised on royalty.
What’s so noteworthy is how far the FBI went out of its way to make it clear that while Hillary Clinton is above the law, the rest of us remain very much at its mercy (like serfs in a kingdom).
Before showing as much, let’s be clear about what the rule of law is, and about its mortal enemy, the rule of kings. When it comes to governance, there are two and only two systems. They are mutually exclusive. Either the law is reigns supreme over the land, or men do. It’s one or the other.
Since its inception, the U.S. has self-identified as a nation of laws, not of men. The U.S., of course, has never lived up to this impossibly perfect ideal, but there is no dispute whatsoever that the rule of law is the reigning ideal against which justice is measured. The negation of the rule of law is the reign of a king (or queen).
The American implementation of the rule of law has several corollaries, including:
(1) because the law is supreme, no one is above the law;
(2) there isn’t one set of rules for some people and a different set of rules for other people; and
(3) because the same laws must be applied equally in all cases, factually identical cases from the past determine how the law applies in future cases.
The rule of law rejects the notion that anyone is above the law. As such, it stands in diametric opposition to the royalty model, in which the king is the law. This royalty principle was most succinctly expressed by William Blackstone in his legal treatise: “The king can do no wrong.”
The FBI’s announcement openly mocks all three rule-of-law principles, as FBI Director James Comey himself made clear. In each and every instance, Comey bends the law around Hillary Clinton, exactly as a dutiful civil servant of the king would do.
1. No One But Hillary Clinton Is Above the Law
FBI Director James Comey made out a clear-cut case that Hillary Clinton violated 18 U.S.C. 793(f):
2. Gross Negligence Is the Legal Standard for Ordinary People; for Hillary Clinton, the Legal Standard Is “Intent to Violate Laws”
By the express terms of 18 U.S.C. 793(f), criminal culpability exists where there is a finding of “gross negligence.” But James Comey informed us that the legal standard is different for Hillary Clinton and her coterie: “we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information”
3. While Hillary Is Free to Break National Security Laws Because She’s Special, You Aren’t
James Comey: “To be clear, this is not to suggest that in similar circumstances, a person who engaged in this activity would face no consequences. To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions. But that is not what we are deciding now.”
Well, there you have it. We’ve known for some time that the rule of law is dead in the U.S. What we didn’t know is who the new king or queen would be. The FBI just told us in three different ways.
All Hail, Queen Hillary—and keep your own noses clean, serfs.
Now let’s see how many peons, having been apprised by the highest authorities in the land that there is in fact a Queen ruling over them, actually line up to vote for Her Highness so as to advance their own subjugation. This massive public display of abject and willing servility, just 4 months away now, promises to be breathtaking.
