Chance Tarmac Meeting
Last week Bill Clinton had a “chance” meeting on the tarmac at Phoenix airport with Attorney General Loretta Lynch (whom he had appointed to a judgeship during his term as president). The meeting lasted some 40 minutes, supposedly just talking about family etc. I think we all know better-purely conjecture of course, but knowing Bill and Hillary, not out of line. Conveniently, AG Lynch came out and said she would comply with the recommendations of the FBI in trying to put out the flames of her meeting with wild Bill.
The FBI interviewed Hillary for 3 ½ hours last Saturday. The interview was not recorded and Clinton was NOT under oath to tell the truth. Amazing.
FBI Findings and Recommendation
This week (Tuesday) the head of the FBI James Comey presented the American people with his agency’s findings and recommendation regarding the Clinton email debacle. His explanation of the FBI investigation was an apparent indictment of Clinton and her illegal activities. He clearly stated that Top Secret and classified information had been transmitted over one or more of Hillary Clinton’s or her staff’s unsecure email server on several occasions, he noted that none of these email conversations should have been conducted on secure devices and that anyone seeing them would know they were classified. After outlining all the broken laws he went on to say the FBI found no sign of “intent” to communicate willingly over non-secure servers.
Are you kidding me? Why would anyone even have a private email server if the intent was not to cover their tracks? I also believe the FBI did their job as an independent agency. Their findings are indisputable. It is the end result which seems to have somehow gotten twisted.
Within a couple hours of the FBI’s announcement Hillary boarded Air Force One with the president to go campaigning in North Carolina. Do you really think Obama and Hillary were unaware that Comey was going to announce his decision today? Do you think they knew what that decision was? I most certainly think they were informed. I also believe this entire investigation has been rigged from the beginning.
Way too much monkey business…and the Clintons appear to have dodged another bullet. I find this to be very disturbing. People have gone to prison or have had their lives damaged for doing much less with their handling of classified documents. There will be no consequences for this behavior by the former Secretary of State…who seeks the office of President.
Friends, our country and the way of life we have known is today in great jeopardy. The wolves (politicians and crooks) have gotten into the chicken coop (our governmental operations) and are dining on the chickens (the massive amounts of money flowing into the government coffers) with impunity.
Protests and Bloodshed
I am sure you are aware of the unfortunate death of two black men on Wednesday by local police, one in Minnesota the other in Louisiana. There are not many facts available at this time, though Minnesota’s governor said racism appears to have been a factor in the fatal shooting (there is NO proof of that being true) in St. Paul. Naturally the President came out to vilify our law enforcement professionals and how they treat minorities. Walk a mile in police officers’ shoes Mr. President. It is not an easy job and all who serve should be applauded. Naturally, you will find some bad apples in every cart but on the whole our police men and women should be celebrated, not vilified.
Last night in Dallas, Texas, several gunmen, from elevated positions, opened fire on a gathering of police officers keeping the peace at a protest of the two deaths mentioned above. 5 policemen are now dead, 6 or 7 more were wounded.
One of the shooters, cornered in a parking building, negotiated for several hours with police, even exchanging gunfire. He told the police he was angry about the two recent deaths, at Black Lives Matter, that he disliked and wanted to kill white people and especially white policemen. After refusing to surrender, the police, unwilling to risk more lives, sent a robot with a bomb attached into the place where the shooter was, he was blown to pieces and what’s left of him is roasting in hell. Three more are in custody but not cooperating.
All of this bullshit is instigated by the Black Lives Matter movement and other left wing progressive anarchist movements. They hate the United States and seek to destroy her from within.This politically correct crap is ruining the country, they are pitting American against American and it cannot end well in this atmosphere. Naturally, the president got on his bully pulpit again railing against guns…to be continued.
Not Yet Off the Hook
Hillary is not quite off the hook yet: the State Department has re-opened its investigation into her law breaking email scandal and Congress wants the FBI to investigate whether or not Hillary lied to Congress, under oath, during the Benghazi hearings. This resulted from an exchange between James Comey and Jason Chafetz head of the intelligence and government reform committees (I believe). He asked director Comey if they had investigated her statements to Congress as many of her proclamations of innocence refuted the findings of the FBI. Mr. Comey said he needed a Congressional referral to investigate those. Seemingly surprised, Mr. Chafetz told him he would have that referral to investigate in several hours. Hillary’s statements and Director Comey’s statements are readily available to compare and EVERYONE should read them. She and her husband are both crooks, liars, untrustworthy and much more. This is great! …. and I hope they fry her fat ass.
“MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”
Have a great weekend…. God bless America!
Buy American made products whenever you can, it’s good for you, good for your friends and neighbors and good for our country.
If you are hiring…try to hire a veteran…. they are loyal, disciplined, hardworking…and they deserve our support.
Remember these tidbits as the election cycle grinds on:
- Fast & Furious-Americans killed by guns supplied to the drug cartels…by the Department of Justice-Eric Holder presiding. The president was clueless. No one held accountable
- Benghazi: Four Americans killed in an assault described as the result of a viral video. This was proved to be a false narrative. This was in fact, a planned act of terror. The president was clueless. No one even knows where he was as this went down. No one held accountable
- “At this point, what difference does it make?” Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State
- The IRS targeting of conservative groups and individuals. No one held accountable, Lois Lerner is on paid vacation and has refused to testify. The president was clueless. No one held accountable
- Hillary using a private server for correspondence during her term as Secretary of State against the orders of the president. She thought “it would be more convenient…” Though the records were due when she left office, they were not submitted, subpoenas were issued, which she ignored for two years. Finally, she released 30,000 of some 60,000 alleged emails then she deleted the rest of the emails and will NOT turn over the server for investigation.
