    That photo is me about ten years ago, standing in the ruins of a land where people rejected the rule of law in favor of the rule of force. I think a lot about my year-long deployment to Kosovo these days. I think a lot about people today who, for short term political points, cavalierly disregard the rules, laws and norms that made America what it is. ... Today in America, a despised minority that's really no minority is the target of an establishment that considers this minority unworthy of respect, unworthy of rights, and unworthy of having a say...

    Wow. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the photo of Hillary carrying a USPS crate which clearly warns of criminal penalty for public use. I think her actions reflect her poor judgment not merely because she is in possession of property stolen from the USPS, BUT THAT SHE DID NOT CARE ABOUT THE OPTICS OF CARRYING WHAT IS CLEARLY MARKED AS STOLEN PROPERTY!! Due to copyright issues I've not posted the photo here but it can be viewed within the following link:

    The FBI director is a talented lawyer, but even he could not mount a convincing case for his actions. In a quarter century in law enforcement, I never encountered anyone more confident, or with more reason to be confident, than Jim Comey. The former Bush Justice Department deputy attorney general turned Obama Justice Department director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation has earned bipartisan plaudits for a reason: He is as able as it gets. The nation got to see that this week: first, in his tour de force press conference both damning and clearing Hillary Clinton; then, just 48...

    Hillary Clinton granted non-cleared people access to classified information, FBI Director James Comey testified Thursday. But he could not definitively confirm that those with access, in this particular instance, her attorneys, had actually read the classified material, and a spokesman for Clinton sharply contested the assertion. “Did Secretary Clinton's attorneys have the security clearances needed?” Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) asked Comey, who responded, “They did not.” Asked whether that concerned him, the FBI director said, “Oh yeah, sure.” But Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted, “To be clear, the lawyers who sorted through Clinton's emails had Top Secret-level clearance." Clinton’s...

    THE BIG IDEA: Want to know why two-thirds of Americans do not consider Hillary Clinton trustworthy? Rewatch pretty much any public comment she’s made about her email use over the past 16 months and then watch James Comey’s speech yesterday. The FBI director shredded so many of the talking points that the former secretary of state and her top aides have used over and over again throughout this scandal, including that she never emailed classified material; that information in the emails was classified retroactively; that none of the emails were marked as containing classified information; that there were definitively no...

    There is no way of getting around this: According to Director James Comey (disclosure: a former colleague and longtime friend of mine), Hillary Clinton checked every box required for a felony violation of Section 793(f) of the federal penal code (Title 18): With lawful access to highly classified information she acted with gross negligence in removing and causing it to be removed it from its proper place of custody, and she transmitted it and caused it to be transmitted to others not authorized to have it, in patent violation of her trust. Director Comey even conceded that former Secretary Clinton...

    One the most coveted cards available to a player of the classic board game, Monopoly, is the “Get Out of Jail Free” card that entitles the lucky bearer to escape the loss of money that comes from sitting in “jail” for three throws of the dice. In real life, and for the average citizen who violates federal law, the reality is quite different -- except, of course, if you happen to be Hillary Clinton and you count the president of the United States and the leadership of the Department of Justice among your cronies. Yesterday, after what FBI Director James...

    Twitter’s court of public opinion was ruling against FBI Director James Comey Tuesday after the FBI announced that it would not be pressing any charges against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton despite ruling that she and her aides were “careless” in their mishandling of classified information during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. With a creativity usually reserved for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s faux pas, Twitter exploded with “Shorter Comey” tweets as the Twittersphere boiled down the massive FBI investigation and Comey’s statement to the media Tuesday into a message that was just Twitter-sized.

    ( - No one at the White House knew that FBI Director James Comey was going to speak on Tuesday, never mind what he'd say, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters on Tuesday. "With regard to a reaction from the White House, I don't have an official reaction to share," he said. "The reason for that is simply that, while the FBI is completing their investigation, the career prosecutors at the Department of Justice still have to make a final determination about how and whether to proceed.

    Forgive the vanity post, but I'd like to tear you away from all the Monday morning quarterbacking of Comey's press conference and ask two questions. During the previous Clinton administration, FBI agents repeatedly assassinated U.S. citizens, including women and children, and did so with the full support and approval of the Clinton White House and the U.S. Justice Department.Did you really expect anything other than another FBI whitewash this time? Have you forgotten the Weaver family and the Branch Davidians already?

    The Washington Times ^ | Wednesday, July 6, 2016 | By Stephen Dinan
    House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Wednesday that Congress could step in and try to deny Hillary Clinton access to classified information during the presidential campaign, if the Obama administration doesn’t take that step itself. Given that the FBI found Mrs. Clinton “careless” in handling top secret information, Mr. Ryan said Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should deny her the regular intelligence briefings a party’s presidential and vice presidential nominees get. But he said if Mr. Clapper doesn’t do that, Congress could step in. “We’re not going to forego any options,” he said — though he insisted the administration...

    On Monday America celebrated the 240th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, which condemned King George III for "(obstructing) the Administration of Justice." On Tuesday the American left celebrated as the federal government obstructed the administration of justice on behalf of one of its ruling families, the Clintons. ....This is the Wilsonian legacy, finally achieved after a century of waiting: the Big Man (or Woman), unanswerable to the law, approved by the population without regard to equality under the law. We now elect our dictators. And they are unanswerable to us — except, presumably, once every four...

    Last night, I emailed our Legal Insurrection leader Bill Jacobson to say I was counting on Joe Scarborough to have his finest moment this morning in light of the fiasco of the failure of the FBI to recommend the indictment of Hillary Clinton. This morning, Scarborough rose to the occasion. With significant support from Mika Brzezinski, Morning Joe‘s opening segment was one long blast at Hillary — for doing what she did with her email and lying about it — at James Comey — for failing to indict — and at President Obama — for putting his thumb on the...

    The CIA could not be changed. The FBI seems to have the same problem. Military Generals who are political and not warriors. A State department that does not work in the country's interests. At least Hillary was smart enough to fire 75 lawyers when Bill took office. That + the travel office. Trump is the only Republican who sees this. If he wins he should call for a MASS RESIGNATION BEFORE Dec 31-no vacation pay for 2017. Every department. 'Team players' who are not should go down the same route as the Travel office-fired with no sick leave reimbursement. 5...

    Subterfuge A day later, I’m still trying to make sense of why James Comey would choose to do what he did yesterday. If you just don’t want to recommend charges against Hillary, the logical move would be to say as little as possible, talk about how the case doesn’t rise to the level of prosecution, and leave the stage. By talking at length about all the evidence that clearly shows Hillary was guilty of at least gross negligence in her handling of classified information – which is absolutely a criminal violation regardless of intent – he might as well have...

    Now galloping full-speed toward the White House, is Barack Obama’s third term. The only way out of the hell where Alinsky Twins Barry Soetoro and Hillary Clinton have abandoned America starts with Americans breaking out of the state of denial in which they’ve been living. There was never even a sliver of a chance that the law-breaking Hillary Clinton would be indicted for her flagrant email felonies. Once Obama stepped up to openly stump for her, Hillary Clinton would never be brought to justice. That should have been everyone’s first clue.

    Trump surrogates have been accused of debasing themselves by supporting The Donald. But have any sunk so low as poor Harold Ford, Jr., the Hillary surrogate who humiliated himself today on national TV? Appearing on With All Due Respect, former Dem congressman Ford, disagreed with Rudy Giuliani’s statement made earlier in the day that Hillary Clinton could not get a security clearance given FBI Director Comey’s conclusion that she acted “extremely carelessly” in the handling of classified material. When Ford claimed that if he were Attorney General, he would hire Hillary for a sensitive position involving national security, it seemed...
