Hillary Is Riding A Two Headed Pony

two-headed-silver__gold_shetland-croppedAccording to USA Today, FBI Director Comey informed congressional leaders that the FBI is reopening the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s illegal email server when they found more missing emails on Anthony Wiener’s computer in a separate investigation. Wiener is the ex husband of Huma Abedin, Hillary’s closest assistant. It’s reported that leaders at the justice department are furious that Comey chose to inform congressional leaders despite being warned not to by AG Lynch. Timing the release of political news must be a science. I envision this as Hillary riding a two headed pony.

 

The Daily Mail out of the UK reported Hillary has now come out and asked the FBI to publish everything they have about her emails. This is purely for optics sake. Damage control is never about the facts; its about your perception of the facts. She can call for the release of all the FBI information on her for free because it gives her the image of being honest and reasonable, and, as a lawyer, she knows they can’t discuss anything under investigation. If she really was honest and reasonable she would not have destroyed and deleted thousands of emails while there was a standing subpoena for them. She could be really reasonable and get Huma’s computer and give it to the press and the FBI. She is in a trap of her own creation, and like it or not, she can’t get out without help, and apparently Mr. Comey has decided he can no longer abide the cost.

In the last debate Hillary Clinton’s argument for not discussing the Wikileaks hacked emails was because those terrible Russians hacked them. There’s no evidence to prove the Russians hacked them, but as long as you brought it up Mrs. Clinton, didn’t you testify this summer that there was no evidence to suggest your emails had been hacked by the Russians? Now you can’t answer a debate question because you assert that Wikileaks is really a tool of the Russians, and that must make Trump cozy with the Russians because he is supposedly now being their minion by bringing this up. It’s sad to me that she thinks Americans are this slow.

 

Have you also noticed the timing of recent events? I’m sure that as an act of kindness the FBI announced their decision to open the investigation up on a Friday before a busy Halloween weekend. They are counting on the weekend news cycle changing the headlines to something bad about Trump. If that doesn’t work, maybe they’ll have a mass clown sighting to derail the news cycle. Whether the FBI likes it or not, this reveals that they are trying to minimize the damage to Hillary’s campaign.

 

As long as we are on the subject of skulduggery and subterfuge, within three hours of reading Comey’s decision in the news, I read an “article” in bipartisanreport.com stating that Gary Johnson and his running mate have conceded the election and are endorsing Hillary. Of course this is not verifiable and not likely to be true. The funny part is that the “article” was dated on Wednesday the 26th of October, but didn’t show up in my Facebook news feed until Friday the 28th three hours after the FBI news. The devil is in the details. How would this not show up in news feeds until after Comey announces the reopening of the criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton? Probably the article’s job was to minimize the damage of the Comey announcement by distracting the impressionable. I wonder who was behind the article. Propaganda can be so entertaining.

 

 

This whole email scandal is not only a problem for Hillary, it puts Huma  Abedin in a really bad spot too. You can be pretty sure her immunity deal is predicated on her sworn testimony that she gave up everything she knew. Now that they found more, her immunity agreement will not cover any new information and may be invalidated by her lie. She’ll have to tell the truth now or go to jail. According to Judge Andrew Napolitano, the mere fact that they reopened the investigation indicates that they have already seated a grand-jury in this case.

 

Politicians who are susceptible to blackmail are a risk to the country they represent. That is the real reason why candidates must be fully vetted. Claiming its not the Russians and it is the Russians makes Hillary look like she is trying to ride a two headed pony, and whoever is in charge of timing this circus has to be going nuts by now.

 

Where Did The Shining City On A Hill Go?

Beacon_HillWhen Ronald Reagan was running for president people felt like they would be part of the solution to our problems; like we the people could do our part in bringing America back. Now I feel like I can’t walk into the voting booth without becoming part of the problem. For me, it is a very powerless feeling. Where did the shining city on a hill go? What happened to us being a light to the world; another of his favorite analogies? There is an answer to this, so stay with me.

Our front running candidate has been caught red handed sharing classified information on an unsecured email server. When the congress subpoenaed copies of her emails, she cherry picked what she sent them and deleted over 30,000 emails, in defiance of the subpoena! She assures the voters that there is no evidence that her email was compromised while her campaign is blaming the Russians for hacking the emails she claims were never compromised. Her hacked emails show she was involved in the sale of stinger missiles to ISIS, as an attempt to topple the Assad regime of Syria. I recently read that at least one of those missiles was proven to bring down a U.S. helicopter in Afghanistan. Email from John Podesta, described by Peter Baker of the New York Times as Hillary’s “Right Hand With A Punch,’ shows Podesta writing about how illegal aliens could vote, and its benefit to Hillary, in an email never meant to be seen by the public.

On the other side we have a man who is too bullheaded to take advice from his own campaign experts. He won’t prepare for a debate in any substantive way. Using precious time in a debate to tell the public how big his plans are for our success shows he does not understand what Americans want to hear. He is not believable because he has been caught on film extolling the virtues of every side of every argument. He used equally slimy methods and lies to subdue his primary opponents as he now complains about Hillary using against him. There is a difference between seeing one’s success as being derived from providing a value at a reasonable price, and thinking your negotiating skills are so superior that the only possible outcome is that you got one over on your customers.

In short, we have two candidates that both think it is They that will make America great; that They possess what we need. If we listen closely we discover that their plan includes taking power over us to lead us where They think we need to go. Of course that would include putting our grandchildren in greater debt than the $54,000 per man, woman, and child debt that our deficit is now at.

I heard nothing from either candidate that even remotely sounded like we are the solution. I heard that we need them; that our problems are greater than us; that we should trust them to fix us and make us great or the compassionate nation we should be. I heard this from two who look down at Americans as those who can be easily manipulated with wild and crazy lies. I saw contempt for the truth, honesty, fairness, justice, and the rule of law.

Reagan was referring to the biblical story about not hiding our light under a basket. The light is the truth in this story. How will people find the truth if we hide it under a basket so it is unseen? I see two candidates who are doing their best to hide the truth. The truth helps us to orient ourselves. Those that speak transparency while living a concealed life, laugh in the voters faces.

If lying because it gets you what you want is ok to you, then I’m sure Hillary doesn’t raise the hair on your neck. If a little locker room talk once in a while doesn’t bother you then I’m sure Donald Trump doesn’t either. If we are truly ok with either of these two candidates then we are a feckless and shallow electorate, and soon the light under the basket will go out. The bible is very clear that having a conscience is a gift and if we don’t use it, it goes away. The answer to the question “Where Did The Shining City On A Hill Go?” is clear. The individuals that make up this country make up “the shining city on a hill.” Reagan’s appeal was right on. He appealed to individuals sense’ of goodness, honesty, decency, fairness, love, respect, etc. in a way that made us want to be all of these things and collectively we all walked a little taller. But now we have given the gift of these candidates to our grandchildren as a reflection of our values. These candidates cannot help us with the wicked hearts we used to select them. They are only a reflection of us. We are the problem. God help us!
