A sentiment shared from the comments thread and prudent & reasonable: “34 years as a USN Submariner. I was willing to kill and die to save our great nation. Not sure now what I did that for, or if I will ask my boys to follow me. Can I even ask them to say the Pledge, which states “Justice for all”? Obama and his sycophants (like the POS Ray Mabus), have destroyed our country. I think we are doomed and all I have left now is my faith in my God.”
The startling announcement yesterday from James Comey had ringing tones of the John Roberts cave-in four years ago when he twisted himself into pretzels to deliver to the criminal OBO the Clown Prince of Fools the travesty of Obomanationcare (and to see it all falling apart at the seams today is scant recognition of “see, we told you so”) and a strong hint that We The people were witnessing the rapid decline of America into abject tyranny. When We The People cannot even look up to the Chief Justice of the United States, and the Director of the FBI to “do the right thing according to the Constitution” then it is more than disheartening: it is manure for that tree of freedom which Jefferson described as “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
Two wildly contrasting recent events to illustrate today, which have very ironic elements contained within them. The one nation which broke itself free from the chains of royal tyranny in 1776, is now being embarrassingly stripped bare by that same nation which has done exactly the same thing in 2016 by releasing itself from the tyranny of Brussels and the EU, exactly 240 years almost to the day. America sinking back into tyranny: Britain Brexiting itself from European tyranny. What irony indeed.
We The People are now facing a similar, if not parallel, choice in this somewhat ugly election year, and one hopes that the American populace can mirror the courage of our English cousins to take back our freedoms and make it great again. Good luck and the grace of God is all I can say. Like England and its soldiers of freedom like Boris Johnson, Daniel Hannan, Nigel Farage and many others, the Constitutional Republic is now facing its own corrupt alliance of a politically-correct left-wing-dominated media, politicians in the pockets of corporations, multi-nationals, black-gold rich Islamic Jihadist Muslim Sheiks, and a globalist cabal of carpet-baggers, gypsies, tramps and thieves the likes of Gyorgy Schwartz-Soros and the United Nations.
Seemingly, since it is in stark focus, America is no longer a nation of laws, and men with gonads other than the other girly-type, are in short supply. One must observe that FBI Director James Comey showed himself yesterday (as with Roberts in 2012) as a coward and paid traitor, which, since the Clinton Criminal Cabal appeared on the scene in the late 1970s-early 80s, seems to be the trend in high-powered government types these days.
First up an outstanding piece from Bruce Thornton in today’s FrontPageMagazine titled “James Comey and the Road to Tyranny”, in which he clearly reveals the perfidy that lurks in Comey’s utter disrespect of our laws and betrayal of the citizens of this country. It is also a clear-eyed warning that the Constitutional Republic, and all the freedoms it protects, are resting on the quicksand of an election that will be determined by a population largely uneducated and basically immoral – the two preconditions of failure for representative governance. Consider this excerpt from the piece for example: “A prudent and reasonable person would not pass classified materials over an unsecured email server. A prudent and reasonable person would also consider Comey’s apparent fine distinction between “gross negligence” and “extreme carelessness” to be a sophistry worthy of Bill Clinton’s metaphysical ruminations on the meaning of “is.” As for “intent,” res ipsa loquitur, as the lawyers like Comey say.
“Prudent and reasonable”: two adjectives that do not remotely describe the BillaryHillarybeast, nor does it, (as is very clearly demonstrated) apply to James Comey either. I’m finding it more and more difficult to believe that America is a nation of laws in which voters will be allowed a legitimate, fair election, along those same lines of “prudent and reasonable”.
FBI Director James Comey has decided not to recommend that Hillary Clinton be indicted for violating security laws concerning the handling of classified information, among other offenses. By doing so he has compromised a fundamental principle of consensual government: that the laws apply equally to everybody, including those entrusted with the people’s power. Now it is up to voters come November to reaffirm that we are a nation of laws, not men.
Comey chose to do what I suggested on May 20 as a possible scenario: “There are any number of ways the Bureau could spin such a recommendation [not to indict] in a way to let Hillary off the hook: no proof of intent, evidence of carelessness but not criminality, or throwing some staffers and aides under the bus.” Comey in his announcement chose two out of three. He scolded Hillary for being “extremely careless,” but said there was no evidence of intent.
Both statements raise suspicions. First, the statute in question proscribes “gross negligence.” How is “extreme carelessness” different from “gross negligence”? Is there a firm legal distinction between these two? Black’s Law Dictionary defines “negligence” in law as “The omission to do something which a reasonable man, guided by those considerations which ordinarily regulate the conduct of human affairs, would do, or doing something which a prudent and reasonable man would not do.” Here is the definition for “carelessness”: “Negligence: failure to act with the prudence that a reasonable person would exercise under the same circumstances.” See any difference?

Next up, Bill Whittle with his latest Firewall in which he brilliantly intertwines the two ironies and makes commonsense out of the outcome. The Brexit is nothing less than a HUGE setback for the leftist progressives. It’s an absolutely glorious thing to behold when one considers the non-stop retreat that conservatism has been in almost since the second world war.
God bless both the USA and UK. The UK will experience some turbulent waters in the coming months and years. But, I’m confident they will emerge stronger apart from the EU than they were as a part of it. We The People need to stand toe to toe with our British ally. As a proponent of free trade, I am encouraged that trade deals are already being made between the Brexit Britain and countries around the globe, and especially between the US and UK. Once again, the “back of the queue” slur from Obama the Clown prince of Fools comes back to haunt him, as have the lies and deception he has foisted off on We The people since he arose from the dark neighborhoods of Chiraq.
Let’s raise our glasses and drink a toast to freedom of natural curvature for cucumbers and big, high swingsets. Rule Britannia!
