Jaws have been dropping since yesterday’s presser by FBI Director James Comey. He used the bulk of that presentation to outline a clear and detailed case against Hillary Clinton for her email related crimes, then ended his comments by recommending no criminal charges be brought against her. And he took no questions from the assembled media hounds.
Mr. Comey’s incongruous, tightly scripted speech leaves many claiming there is one set of laws for the well-connected Hillary Clinton and another for the rest of humanity. Indeed, the ‘rule of law’ in this once great American republic — and the romantic notion that all citizens receive equal justice thereunder — has been decimated. But let’s be clear, it’s not just Hillary Clinton.
One remembers the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2012 decision on the purported constitutionality of ObamaCare. Chief Justice Roberts began his majority opinion with reasons why ObamaCare ought not pass constitutional muster, then ended his opinion with a convoluted rationale for upholding the ObamaCare statute, as if to justify a pre-determined outcome. That’s awfully similar to what Mr. Comey did yesterday, arguing for another pre-determined outcome. Care to hazard a guess as to who did the pre-determining?
A pattern of obfuscation and outlandishly straight-faced denials has become part of President Obama’s presidential legacy. One cannot be faulted for wondering if Mr. Obama and his people somehow ‘got to’ James Comey. Did they similarly ‘get to’ John Roberts? Did they intentionally lie about ObamaCare in order to get it through Congress? Did they deliberately target conservatives for harassment by the IRS and then lie about it? Did they politically calculate and deliberately allow the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, before they lied about that? Did Justice Antonin Scalia really die of natural causes (feel free, at your own peril, to consider that a sarcasm)?
Nothing seems off-limits to Obama’s cabal, in which Mrs. Clinton is now ensconced as heir apparent, and their consuming pattern of corruption, a pattern deeply rooted in Mr. Obama’s own authoritarian tendencies and his utter ruthlessness in securing his objectives. It is so essential to their conduct that almost no suspicion or accusation of impropriety is beyond belief. And the ‘rule of law’ seems ever more a quaint notion of America’s once illustrious past.Follow @PolitiQuick
