Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been under investigation for months regarding personal email servers. She obtained and used these servers as Secretary of State, which is against Federal Law. In a press conference on July 5th, FBI Director James Comey reported 110 classified emails were sent through this server, which Hillary tried deleting. Because these were on an unclassified system, Comey believes these emails were hacked by our enemies, but they don’t know for sure.
Regardless of the laundry list of federal violations and obvious lies Hillary told regarding these violations, Comey decided "no reasonable prosecutor" would move forward with charges. Why? Because he claims she did not willingly break the law. Prisons are full of citizens convicted of actions they had no idea were unlawful. The IRS would have nothing to do if it didn’t go after taxpayers for unknown omissions and innocent oversights. Ted Cruz opponents crucified him because he accidentally forgot to disclose a loan on one of two campaign forms. Yet apparently Hillary is perfectly innocent sending over 100 classified and top secret emails on an illegal server because she supposedly didn’t know it was wrong.
Liberty, America is no longer a nation of laws. She is a dictatorship where the elite of the elite have placed themselves above the law.
Others in government have been prosecuted and punished for acts far less than those Comey reported of Clinton. To claim there is no evidence of purposeful deceit is irrelevant. He also proposes that she is not “sophisticated” enough to understand her actions were wrong or would put America at risk. This is laughable considering she is regarded as one of the most intelligent progressives we have ever had.
“Ignorantia juris non excusat" or “Ignorantia legis neminem excusat" are Latin terms meaning “ignorance of the law does not excuse" or "ignorance of the law excuses no one." Our justice system specifically follows these statutes or else everyone would plead ignorance. Regardless, it is not his place to determine if the prosecutor should prosecute. The FBI is there to investigate and present their findings to the Justice Department, not to give public recommendations. This is corruption at its highest.
President Richard Nixon was forced to resign in 1974 because of eighteen minutes of missing tape. He was suspected of involvement in the Watergate burglary during his 1972 re-election bid. With a looming impeachment, Nixon stepped down to save the country, and himself, the embarrassment of the proceedings.
Responding to Nixon’s resignation, now former President Bill Clinton gave his very interesting opinion. There is “no question that an admission of making false statements to government officials and interfering with the FBI and the CIA is an impeachable offense.” Since Clinton was impeached in 1998 for perjury and obstruction of justice, he might know something about this. Apparently he doesn’t hold his wife to the same standards.
Comey laid out undeniable federal offenses yet decided there was not enough evidence to prosecute. He admitted to Congress today that Hillary lied during their investigation, “making false statements to government officials”, yet there is apparently nothing to see here. It makes one wonder what Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch spoke about in a private meeting just a week before. Lynch seemed humble when she announced a few days later that the Department of Justice would follow the FBI’s recommendation, no matter what it was. (see ) Could it be because Hillary was to announce over the weekend that she would consider keeping Lynch on as AG?
Bribery, deceit, corruption, and criminality. America, I give you President Hillary Clinton.
Congress is now looking to move forward with actions they can take against Hillary. I’m not holding my breath, though. Thanks to Comey, a path for her to actually still win the presidency even AFTER the evidence was presented is now before us. Has America become that dark that we would still elect a person who has already committed impeachable offenses before taking office? Sadly, the answer is yes.
Liberty, evil is running wild. We have eaten from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil and we are full of ourselves. (see ) We have lost respect for the law, both God’s and America’s, and allow certain people to be placed above it. We are now no different than any other civilization on earth. Progressives champion that everyone is equal while dividing us into groups and placing themselves at the top of the food chain. If they believe and promote equality, where is the evidence? Since they forced God out of everything, they justify their actions and will never understand their hypocrisy.
While God is not punishing us for our sins, He has removed Himself, per our demand, and is allowing us to live in our desired Utopia. Not pretty, is it? As they say, you don’t know what you had until it’s gone.
As John Adams wrote his wife, Abigail, on July 7, 1775: “But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever. When the People once surrender their share in the Legislature, and their Right of defending the Limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every Encroachment upon them, they can never regain it…”
Liberty, I will continue to hold out hope that God will somehow spare us from our looming devastation. If He in fact allows it to happen, though, I have full confidence that it is because He has a much better outcome planned on the other side. We must continue to fight the good fight while clothed in God’s armor. We must be ready to pick up those in despair and show them God’s love and peace. Isn’t that really what it’s all about anyway?
That’s my 2 cents.
ABOVE THE LAW
