Donald and Hillary in Plunderland

by Richard M Ebeling  

"Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump represent variations on the same political theme: the interventionist-welfare state, with each pandering to different coalitions of special interests and ideological groups. Both are promising their constituents different varieties of something-for-nothing: for instance, free or heavily subsidized college tuition in Clinton's case and a 'beautiful,' 'huge' wall on the Mexican border in Trump's case. Both promise jobs that are well-paying and secure from the realities of an ever-changing global economy. In their own ways, both promise to make America safe and 'great' again. Even where they seem to differ, their basic tools are the same." (07/18/16)

Degree of certainty: Why Hillary wins

Independent Country

"Donald Trump has picked Mike Pence as his running mate. While I most likely disagree with Pence on most things, he might be a relatively capable Oval Office sitter if Trump wins but resigns in a year to become a judge on America's Got Talent. But that won't happen. Whatever Pence's qualifications may be, the ticket as a whole has a glaring omission: nobody with a Harvard or Yale degree. That means it will lose." (07/15/16)

Clinton vs. Trump: Who’s worse?

Reason Reason

"It's not unusual for libertarians to have a hard time backing either major party's presidential candidate, but the dispiriting choice between Clinton and Trump has even the most Republican-friendly members of the movement holding their noses. So reason decided to ask some prominent libertarian and libertarian-leaning figures which candidate offends them more. Unlike [PJ] O'Rourke and [Rand] Paul, the people surveyed below are not making endorsements here -- many will be voting for a third-party candidate or staying home. They're answering a simpler question: not Who will you vote for? but Which one of these two is worse?" for publication 08/16)

FBI required Clinton Servergate investigators to promise secrecy

July 15, 2016
posted by

New York Post New York Post    

"In an unusual move, FBI agents working the Hillary Clinton email case had to sign a special form reminding them not to blab about the probe to anyone unless called to testify. Sources said they had never heard of the 'Case Briefing Acknowledgment' form being used before, although all agents must initially sign nondisclosure agreements to obtain security clearance. 'This is very, very unusual. I’ve never signed one, never circulated one to others,' said one retired FBI chief." (07/14/16)

"When FBI Director James Comey publicly revealed his recommendation to the Department of Justice last week that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton not be prosecuted for espionage, he unleashed a firestorm of criticism from those who believe that Clinton was judged by different standards from those used to judge others when deciding whether to bring a case to a grand jury. ... Nevertheless, Clinton's persistent problems with personal honesty have brought her face to face with three more criminal investigations. One is for public corruption. The second is for perjury. And the third is for misleading Congress." (07/14/16)

Hillary Clinton’s email absolution: Two parties, one criminal regime

CounterPunch CounterPunch
by Eric Draitser  

"What was your reaction when you heard FBI Director James Comey announce to the world that the Bureau would not be recommending that charges be filed against Hillary Clinton over her handling of emails while she was Secretary of State? ... Chances are you weren't the least bit surprised that no charges were recommended. But what does that tell you about our political system? That millions of Americans weren't remotely caught off guard by the exculpation of Hillary Clinton is less a commentary about American attitudes than it is a clear indication of the all-pervasive criminality that is at the heart of America's political ruling class. And the fact that such criminality is seen as par for the course demonstrates once again that the rule of law is more a rhetorical veneer than a juridical reality." (07/14/16)

The predictable and pathetic end of Sanders’s “political revolution”

July 14, 2016
posted by

OpEdNews
by Patrick Martin  

"Bernie Sanders ended his presidential campaign Tuesday, not with a bang but a whimper. The Vermont senator formally endorsed his rival in an undignified prostration before the Democratic Party establishment and Wall Street's favored presidential candidate, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The unity rally featuring Sanders and Clinton in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, had all the spontaneity and enthusiasm of a going-out-of-business sale. The funereal atmosphere was perhaps fitting, because with the demise of the Sanders campaign, the Democratic Party has demonstrated, for the thousandth time, its historical role as the graveyard of progressive movements and efforts to achieve reform through the capitalist two-party system."

GOP rips into Lynch, who refuses to discuss details of pre-prosecution pardon for Clinton

July 12, 2016
posted by

The Hill The Hill    

"Attorney General Loretta Lynch refused to discuss her decision not to pursue charges against Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, despite intense criticism from House Republicans. Days after FBI Director James Comey testified for nearly five hours in one House committee, Lynch took a markedly different tack before a separate panel. She repeatedly refused to discuss details of the Clinton case, referred matters back to the FBI and at times appeared to go out of her way not even to say the former secretary of State's name, instead referring obliquely to 'the matter.' ... Lynch was thrust into the hot seat following revelations that she had met privately with former President Clinton for 30 minutes on the tarmac at Phoenix's airport. The attorney general maintained that the meeting was purely social and unplanned, but it was seen as compromising her position overseeing the case." (07/12/16)

"A contentious Democratic primary fight ended Tuesday with hugs, handshakes and thank yous, as Bernie Sanders told supporters that their 'political revolution' was dependent upon getting Hillary Clinton elected as the country's next president. ... Sanders delivered the endorsement just two weeks shy of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia but Clinton offered a huge smile, embracing Sanders as they raised their arms in unity. The former secretary of state said the final four months of the campaign would be 'much more enjoyable' working alongside Sanders and echoed her campaign slogan, 'We are stronger together.'"

Clapper: No, I won’t keep classified information away from people who mishandle it

Fox News    

"Director of National Intelligence James Clapper denied a Republican request Monday to block Hillary Clinton from getting classified intelligence, after the FBI concluded she was 'extremely careless' in her handling of classified information as secretary of state. House Speaker Paul Ryan had written to Clapper on July 6, after the FBI slammed Clinton's use of a private server but recommended no charges be brought against her. Ryan told Clapper he wanted Clinton prohibited from receiving classified information 'for the duration of her candidacy for president.' ... In a letter Monday, however, Clapper said he would not withhold intelligence briefings from any nominated presidential candidate." (07/12/16)

Consequences of criminal incompetence

"FBI director James Comey and his army of G-men have discovered a mountain of evidence indicating beyond any reasonable doubt that Democrat Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is a serially incompetent dishonest criminal having feloniously violated federal statutes prohibiting the mishandling of classified information during her tenure as U.S. Secretary of State. Democrat Clinton, however, won't face trial and be convicted for her many crimes because Comey, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and the Democrat Obama Administration have refused to prosecute her. That's because, as I posted last week, the case against her has been Fixed! She's guilty as sin but the fix is in." (07/09/16)

Comey tries to explain why Hillary Clinton is above the law to House Oversight Committee

"FBI Director James Comey acknowledged Thursday that multiple public statements made by Hillary Clinton about her email use were not true, at a tense Capitol Hill hearing where he faced tough questions from GOP lawmakers over the bureau's decision not to seek charges against the former secretary of state despite her mishandling of classified information. ... [US House Speaker Paul] Ryan also sent a letter to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper urging him to deny Clinton access to classified information 'for the duration of her candidacy for president.'
... The Clinton campaign is hitting back repeatedly at Republicans, with a top spokesman calling the bid to deny her access to classified information a 'stunt' and the campaign saying Republicans had voiced 'nothing but confidence' in Comey before his announcement earlier this week." (07/07/16)

The Department of Political Justice

"[I]n the past two years, the DOJ has prosecuted a young sailor for sending a single selfie to his girlfriend that inadvertently showed a submarine sonar screen in its background. It also prosecuted a Marine lieutenant who sent his military superiors a single email about the presence of al-Qaida operatives dressed as local police in a U.S. encampment in Afghanistan -- but who inadvertently used his Gmail account rather than his secure government account. And it famously prosecuted Gen. David Petraeus for sharing paper copies of his daily calendar in his guarded home with a military colleague also in the home .... Yet earlier this week, FBI Director James Comey -- knowing that his bosses in the DOJ would accept his legal conclusions about Clinton's failure to keep state secrets secure, because they had removed themselves from independently judging the FBI's work -- told the public that whereas the inadvertence of the above defendants was sufficient to justify their prosecutions, somehow Clinton's repeated recklessness was not."

Piranha in a pantsuit Hillary Clinton homes in on corporate cash

"In another sign of just who it is that the Democratic Party truly represents these days, Hillary Clinton is looking to rake in millions from the same greedy corporations that have gutted the working class and created an economic order that best resembles a corrupt banana republic. Following up on her top secret speeches to Wall Street donors and a ravenous appetite for corporate graft, the queen in waiting is seeking to pounce on the establishment's disillusionment with billionaire iconoclast Donald Trump's populist call for the junking of globalist hose jobs the likes of NAFTA and the TPP. With the fat cats now running from the Republicans as if they have the Ebola virus they will be welcomed with open arms by Mrs. Clinton who will keep their rackets intact and the golden cash spigots flowing."

"Feel like Charlie Brown? That football ... yanked away again. Yesterday, FBI Director James Comey announced he's not recommending prosecution of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate. ... Donald Trump's negative standing with voters, 70 percent disapproval in a recent survey, may save Mrs. Clinton. Still, standing in her way remains the fact that a majority of voters just don't trust her. That won't change with yesterday's news." (07/06/16)

Hillary Clinton, vindicated?

"As a former government employee who has had Top Secret, Codeword, and Special Access Clearances from the Department of Defense, Central Intelligence Agency, and State Department, I find the Clinton defense that she and her team considered the private server to be acceptable practice untenable. Anyone who has handled classified information knows very well that you do not copy it, you do not send it somewhere else or share it with someone who has no need to know, and you do not edit it down to make it unclassified in your opinion. It is not a matter for discussion, debate, or interpretation. For me and the former government employees in my circle, the entire Clinton charade that has been playing out for so many months is unfathomable." (07/06/16)

"Tuesday morning, FBI Director James Comey stepped up to a podium and calmly and methodically demolished every single Hillary Clinton lie, spin, and evasion regarding her misuse of classified information. Months of deception blew up in her face. And then Comey decided to make her president of the United States. Rarely have 30 minutes of television so perfectly encapsulated the decline and fall of the rule of law and the extraordinary privileges enjoyed by America's liberal [sic] elite. After listing abuse after abuse -- and detailing lie after lie -- Comey declared that 'no reasonable prosecutor' would prosecute Hillary for her obvious and manifest crimes. It's good to be a Clinton." (07/06/16)

Hillary Clinton and criminal intent

Thomas L Knapp -- photo by Avens O'Brien KN@PPSTER
by Thomas L Knapp  

"If I shoot you in the head, the prosecutor isn't going to ask whether or not I read Revised Statute BR-549, Criminal Homicide, and said to myself 'hey, I really like violating laws, I think I'll violate that one today!' He's going to ask whether or not I intended to shoot you in the head. If I did, that was criminal intent because it was an intentional action that happened to violate Revised Statute BR-549. Secretary Clinton and her colleagues didn't accidentally do the things they did. It's not like she and her staff tripped over the dog, got up off the floor and suddenly realized they had inadvertently set up a private email server and illegally conducted sensitive State Department business on and illegally passed classified information through that server. They did those things on purpose and since those things are against the law they clearly had criminal intent in doing them." (07/05/16)

Comey’s Hanoi confession

The American Spectator
by Scott McKay  

"Viewed under the standard of legal interpretation required of any law school class or even jury instruction in America today, FBI director James Comey's press conference Tuesday recommending no prosecution be undertaken of Hillary Clinton resulting from the large-scale investigation into her emails would make no sense. ... if you want to understand Comey's statements you might have to recall those messages the downed pilots at the Hanoi Hilton occasionally would record for the folks back home -- and particularly the one Rear Adm. Jeremiah Denton offered up, in which amid his happy statements about humane treatment by the North Vietnamese were obscured by what looked like unnatural blinking. When Denton's off-putting tics were matched with Morse code, it was obvious he was spelling out the word 'torture' to the American public." (07/05/16)
