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.
How long can DOJ whores sell their tricks?
About as long as the metals markets fix?
And what about their gaming of the VIX,
And hints of numbers like seven and six?
As bond monetization hides in the BLICS,
More nations line up to join BRICS.
When global bear markets deflate by ticks,
Stock volatility leverages like on VIX.
Banks’ derivatives exposed by licks,
Every fraud thrown into the mix.
Rule of law return from the sticks?
May people decide with their clicks,
A future not for elite’s kicks,
Nor of paper, but of bricks.
Jail commie Comey!
” Anyone who votes for Hillary is a complete moron.” That’s the truth. And we will find out soon that the majority of the US electorate fits that description.
I call it willful ignorance. People will fall for the slick advertising that makes Hillary look like she cares about the poor and the children. But the fact is, Hillary only cares about Hillary. She is even willing to put her daughter on display, placing her between Hillary and her philandering husband showing familial support. Hillary’s motives are plain as day to see for anyone who cares to look. Unfortunately there appears to be so few of us that are actually willing to look. Royalty has the dumbed down populace bamboozled as we walk right into the jaws of Tyranny.
” Anyone who votes for Hillary is a complete moron.” That’s the truth.
I intensely dislike Trump. At least he’s a relative outsider to the system…at least for a while if he is elected.
Guess I’ll have to hold my nose and vote for him, becasue anything…anything…but Clinton. Homer Simpson. The Grinch that stole Christmas. Ebenezer Scrooge. The Joker. Moriarty. Captain Hook. Sauron. Mr. Hyde. Hannibal Lecter. Voldemort .
At least they were more honest about their intentions.
Voting is not valid other than to legitimize a system that has failed. Voting is a waste of time. I have not voted since 1992 – proudly. I refuse to vote for the “lesser of two evils.” Toxicity + toxicity does NOT = Purification
Every citizen should vote. If one wants “change” the only sensible action is participate in our “democracy” by casting a vote of no confidence in a rigged and illegitimate system by staying home on election day.
My sentiments EXACTLY!! Since I read the book Votescam, I have been trying to educate people in the futility of voting for this or that law, this or that scum bag, but very few want to step even just one inch outside of that line they have drawn on the ground and see things they rerally are! They are so brain dead, brain washed and dumbed down, they just can’t fathom what they would do if they couldn’t go down to the polls and cast a ballot that doesn’t matter at all.
The Clinton’s and James Comey go back over 20 years.
In his last day in office, Bill Clinton pardoned 450 people. One of those pardoned was Robert Palmer who pleaded guilty for his part in the Clinton’s “Whitewater” scandal.
Mary Jo White (Dem) who is now head of the SEC, was appointed to investigate these pardons. After little progress was made, she was replaced by James Comey (Rep) who found “no illegality” on Bill Clinton’s part.
No illegality. I guess ethics violations mean nothing anymore.
Dave-well it is one thing to think FBI & Justice is corrupted …but it is a whole other thing to know their is absolute proof their is a two tier system…one for politically connected one for the rest…this so sad …I worked in Africa DRC for 4 -7 years you know where every one get raped and killed ..where being politically connected was the only way…not what you did, but who you know…all my students were high raking Mil officers…and we had many discussions on how fair and just it is US,the US being a land of law…I tell I was proud…they know it is not easy …everyone knows it takes courage and above all integrity to do the right thing…
July 5 a very sad day in my life I will never forget it. I buy and sell silver at gun shows …just seems we silver /gold guys just have more integrity, and love of country than most.
Dave, like you I havent voted in over 20 years and I refuse to validate their corrupt , criminal system by participating…
“Anyone who votes, period, is a moron”
I am so glad I am not the only one who thinks like this! I feel that it is all just a show, to make people feel like they have a say things. In reality people have the choice to pick one among two rotten apples. Which is not really a choice.
To me the decision to have Hillary skate was telegraphed when Barry endorsed her for el presidente.
