The Bureau turned its back on its own traditions of floating above partisan politics in the pursuit of justice.
One thing’s a given when it comes to American politics…it’s pretty predictable..
The Hillary Clinton email debacle…Benghazi….her cavalier attitude about national security…None of it seems to matter. This is disturbingly sad. Especially when it should matter A LOT!.. If you take the time to think about it, she is in no way acceptable as president of the United States!
With the exception of the email scandal, the media has maintained a “ho-hum” attitude about her dubious tenure as secretary of state. Four Americans DIED needlessly in Benghazi. It was MORE than obvious she and Barack Obama covered up incompetence in the name of political expediency. Yet, as she indignantly sat before a Congressional committee, she had the unmitigated GALL to dismiss the inquiry as a witch hunt (an appropriate term for her) instead of owning up to the failures of her department. That, along with the flimsy excuse of some video that the world has never seen as the cause for the attacks, should have outraged every citizen of this nation. Yet, her behavior and mismanagement, is excused and exempted. That’s the way it’s always played out for the Clintons. And, despite evidence to the contrary, so will the email scandal. Mrs. Clinton was clearly impervious and careless when it came to the national security of the United States. Criminal negligence is so obvious here. I would like to think the guidelines for the operations of the U.S. State Department are pretty clear! Nevertheless, she’s given a pass.
It’s been noted that you can kiss accountability goodbye with Hillary Clinton in the White House. Some could argue, that’s always been the case. But, never before has it been staring us in the face as we turn a blind eye. Sad…very, very..sad….
This election season is indeed a fiery one…And it’s just getting started…
Aside from the shameful occurrences in San Jose, CA last week, you may be having a difficult time grasping Donald Trump’s appeal to vast numbers of voters..If you take the time to look behind the lackluster reporting of most of the mainstream media, the answer is fairly obvious…
This is from the Wall Street Journal, June 4-5, 2016 edition…
“The U.S. job market notched its weakest monthly gain in more than five year, knocking down expectations for a Federal Reserve rate increase and stirring worries about the seven-year old economic expansion.
Employers added 38,000 jobs in May, the weakest performance since September 2010, the Labor Department said Friday. The unemployment rate, obtained from a separate survey of households, fell to 4.7% from 5% in April largely due to a steep decline in labor-force participation.
Revisions to previous payroll data showed employers added a combined 59,000 FEWER jobs in April and March than previously reported. That brought average monthly job growth in the past three months to 116,000, a sharp SLOWDOWN from the average growth of 219,000 over the prior 12 months.”
There you have it.. If you believe there’s real, viable job growth in this country, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you… Yet we have a president in Barack Obama who goes out and touts the reduction in unemployment when you have millions of americans, that presumably WANT a job, dropping out of the work force because there are no REAL jobs that offer career opportunities as in the past. Figures are tossed out by the administration, only to be revised a month or two later with disappointing results. Yet, I’m certain the actual number of Americans that follow that could likely be counted on one hand.
I’m surprised the WJS refers to a “seven-year old economic expansion”! I see no proof or evidence of that!. What the Obama administration, and presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, fail to realize is voters are not “feeling” or experiencing what they’re being told. They don’t see it! It ain’t happening in real lives outside of Washington, DC!
Trump has clued into this. He knows the lies are not being bought any longer. People are fed up with an administration and government the continually attempts to placate frustration with more and more lies..while becoming indignant when challenged. Whether Donald Trump can make a difference..well, that remains to be seen. One thing is certain..If Hillary Clinton is awarded the White House in November, you can expect more of the same! THAT in and of itself is cause for some serious concern!
It is with deep regret that I must surrender further efforts in the form of opinion on the divisiveness and destruction Barack Obama has brought to the United States.
Little effort has been made to actually oppose what he has wrought. Nothing more than lip service is brought to resisting how THIS president has damaged our nation.
With everything from government controlled and sanctioned healthcare to blatant disregard for the reality of unemployment to appeasement on the global stage, Barack Obama is one of the great shames of out nation.
As a society, we have devolved into a distracted and disinterested group. Therein lies the great sadness. We allowed a man who is about as far removed from American integrity and value as you can get, to lead our country’s downfall..
I have decided to step away from the subject and focus my remaining years on personal experiences that provide value and knowledge. It is a complete waste of mental and emotional energy to continue the effort to alert my fellow citizens to what lies ahead on our dangerous road. Hopefully, more of us will be able to shield their lives from it..
God save the United States of America.
Needless to say, I’ve made up MY mind about who to support in 2016. Provided he’s still a candidate. I’m really hoping the latter comes true.
Donald Trump has scored big with millions of Americans who have been looking for someone to give voice to their frustrations over the last decade. Imagine that! A candidate who tells it like it is and says what needs to be said! What a novel idea!
After major Republicans flubs in 2008 and 2012, why shouldn’t they?… How a candidate could lose to the absolute worst president in the history of the United States is beyond me! But, Mitt Romney managed to do so!
Along comes Donald Trump in 2015, seizing upon what he KNOWS Americans feel! No other politician would have the gall to take advantage of that! Of course, Trump isn’t a politician. Considering how BAD this country’s national disgust is with those that have been in charge for far too long, he is the right man at the right time.
As expected, the political class, pundits, and prognosticators are up in arms! There’s no way they’re going to stand by and allow someone who actually LISTENS to the people find his way to the White House. Their frustration lies in the fact that they just can’t seem to grasp the situation. Which is something anyone with common sense can figure out!
I’d like to defer to Rush Limbaugh’s analysis of the Trump saga as it continues to play out since the first Republican debate.. As usual, ‘the godfather’ lays it out in laymen’s terms and makes it crystal clear!….
“There’s a percentage of the population that is totally fed up with the political class, including the media. And they have wanted things said to people and about people for the people they’ve been voting for for years and they haven’t heard it. I mean, the media is not loved. The media in some cases is despised, and Trump is giving it right back to ’em in ways that many people in this country have dreamed of happening. And, as such, he comes off as refreshing….
There is real visceral anger over this amnesty BS. There is real visceral anger over what’s been done for the economy. There is real visceral anger over what is being done to the health care system via Obamacare. The reason they don’t know it is because they do not care to talk to the people who feel that way, so they never do features on them. They never go out and do man-on-the-street interviews with people like that.
Because they are interested in furthering the agenda that has made all of this happen. Now, they know there are gonna be some people that disagree with it, but they immediately relegate them to insignificant status. They’re either bitter clingers or they’re lunkheads or they’re small in number or they’re just old-fashioned ditties that don’t deal well with change or what have you. But they’re missing the real anger, and it’s been building.
The anger, you can see it in the midterm 2010, 2014 elections. There have been people have shown up in droves. The Democrats have lost over a thousand seats in those midterm elections, and part of those elections were Republicans being elected because the people voting for them wanted them to stop all of this, or at least try. And they don’t see any trying to stop it. They don’t see any effort being made, any serious effort to defund Planned Parenthood.
I think there’s some real outrage in this country over what has been learned, was always suspected but now what has been confirmed was going on in those abortion clinics. There’s real anger out there. And the one person that’s come along that’s tapped into it and that gives everybody the impression that he’s fully aware of it and agrees with them is Donald Trump. As such, he’s got a pretty wide berth here. He’s got a pretty big margin of error…”
“Visceral anger!”..That sums it up perfectly! Millions of Americans are simply fed up! And they have been waiting for YEARS to have a candidate that speaks to that! Say what you will about Trump..love him..hate him… He knows what he’s doing and offers the best chance to turn around the disastrous direction in which we’re currently headed. Sadly, most other GOP options can’t come near dynamic enthusiasm Trump projects. And the strongest attraction?..He doesn’t give a DAMN about the media and political elites. And that frightens them! For me, that is a MAJOR advancement in taking control of a nation that seems to be SPIRALING out of control!
Do you get the feeling that more and more and more of current events are just completely topsy turvy?…
More situations and events across our country make no sense whatsoever!….
From a president who decided appeasing totalitarian regimes is better than having the resolve to confront them…to organizations literally calling for erasing our history by sandblasting memorials and tearing down statues!
It just makes no sense! The national demeanor has sunk to an all time low under Barack Obama. His ‘transformative’ approach has led to disaster at every turn! Nothing is what it seems and practically EVERY obnoxious, unthinkable behavior is excused and tolerated.
I suppose most of it comes from a society too distracted with as many matters as there are individuals, to care. Yet EVERYTHING is unraveling at the seams. There are those who downplay its significance. That it’s just the natural transition of things. I don’t think so! NONE of this “feels” right…it offers no hope of resolve or resolution where we will find a productive, engaged society. All of it is so artificial…so fleeting!
The time has come to realize, we are lost as a nation. There’s no confidence..no sense of direction. Just a people waiting to react to whatever foolishness happens next. No leadership is rampant. Sure…you may find a few individuals willing to rise and take charge of certain matters. But, overall there is NO ONE with the sense of how to empower the nation again. The days of that level of reality are long gone.
Barack Obama has brought nothing but shame to the presidency and tarnished it..perhaps indefinitely. The fact the nation entrusted a man that continues to lie to us with the power to shred our societal fabric is just another indication of how far we’ve fallen. We faced difficulty in the past. But, not from an enemy within. And this loss will see to it that we will never recover…
As situations across the country seem to escalate, and encounters between the police and lawbreakers come under more and more scrutiny, the outcome holds NOTHING positive for the nation.
Abusive and deliberate mistreatment aside, the narrative of reigning in law enforcement has begun. Unfortunately, criminal activity is fast becoming emboldened as government turns more of its focus on the police instead of the criminal.
Despicable slob, Michael Moore, has gone so far as to call for police disarmament.
We’re fast approaching a society where those sworn to protect and serve will no longer be able to do so for fear of government reprisal. Far fetched?…Take a look around you…It’s happening right before your eyes….
Look for this in your community soon!
