(Hat tip David Blackmon)

Comey spent 30 minutes July 5, 2016 on broadcast TV listing all the ways Hillary violated federal law and mishandled classified information; then Comey announced he would not be making a criminal referral in Hillary’s email case.

All of Comey’s current posturing reveal what must be one of his major regrets, that he, and he alone, could demonstrate the foundational principles of the American experience not lived anywhere else on the globe.....that we are a country in which all people are indeed created equal as the Founders intended.

America is supposed to be a place that has no ruling class but is a nation of laws, laws that apply equally to the lowest among us and to those who attain the highest public status. James Comey could have become a true American hero that day by showing that this principle still applies.

But he chose another route, kneeling in obeisance to the Clintons’ power.


Yes, Obama fundamentally transform America. We now have a ruling class. No longer a nation of laws, but a nation of men; the law truly does apply differently depending on one’s social caste and the political power of one’s benefactors.

The Daily Caller is rapidly becoming a real news organization as opposed to the MSM. The MSM only digs furiously for non-existent Trump/russian collusion and the obviously trustworthy statements of a porn star/prostitute.

I think Comey is trying to ride the rail here to split down the middle.

On the one hand, he does not like Trump and wants to help him lose, but on the other hand the Clintons will have him killed.

As head of the FBI he must know about all the murders. He’s been associated with them for years. Even Donna Brazille had her curtains closed because she feared for her life after Seth was killed.

By the end of the Obama Presidency we are at the point where Venezuela was just before his cronies in their Congress started “inexplicably” voting Hugo Chavez dictatorial powers.

Same thing was starting to happen here and we have seen the continuation in the very strange behavior of the Republicans since Trump too office

So why hasn’t a special prosecutor been appointed and obstruction of justice charges filed against the Obama Administration Officials involved?

What makes you think there hasn’t been and there isn’t? Huber was secret for a while. And there are a lot of sealed indictments out there.

Good points.......the goal of legitimate leaders is to uplift a nation and its people.

Obama's actions served to demoralize a nation......his legacy is one of marginalizing law-abiding, go-getter Americans.

Obama triggered the rise of misfits, miscreants, ne're-do-wells, and misanthropes, and enabled them to hold sway over American culture.

The detrimental results of his presidency speak to Obama's hatred for superpower America.

Rumors persist that Obama wasn't born here. Like the fictional Philip Nolan.....”The Man Without a Country,”
Obama seems to have renounced our nation......acts like he never heard of the United States of America.

Even more egregious one could conclude Obama might have given explicit orders.......
”no one in the Democrat party should ever mention the United States of America ever again.”

==================================

Obama seems more at home in Kenya.......meddling in their elections.

Barack Obama with Mohamed Abdi, Somali muslim candidate for Mandera East, Kenya who lost.

I Truly believe people should hang for all this corruption and treason. Hanged publicly so this sh!t stops. I know it won't happen, but it should.

Comey admitted his actions were based on a belief that Crooked Hillary would easily win. Other deep staters at FBI, DoJ, State believed it too.

So it’s clear that Comey and others launched the Hillary Dossier, FISA counter-terrorism investigation to dig up dirt on Donald Trump in order for a Crooked Hillary Justice Department to destroy Trump, his businesses, his family, and associates.

The Deep State does not tolerate outsiders.

There are a couple of typos in the article. I have emailed the author:

"In an alleged attempt to show he wasn’t impartial to the Clintons..."

Think about it. To show he wasn't impartial? In fact he wasn't impartial, but he would want us to think the opposite.

"...the idea of shutting down the Clinton Foundation could have emanated from the White House and not just the Justice Department..."

They wanted to shut down the investigation, not the Foundation.

Aaaaaand... absolutely nothing will happen.

At least Reagan earned his title of "the Teflon President".

Obama is the Magic Negro. Emphasis on "Negro". And that's all he ever needed.
