What do you mean 25 years of corruption?


Just as I was starting to write my blog post, I read Alan Caruba’s Warning Signs covering the exact subject matter, but put forth in his superb and articulate style. So rather than reinvent he wheel, I am reposting Alan’s column …

Circumstantial Evidence  By Alan Caruba


Imagine that you are the former Governor of Virginia, Robert F. McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, both sitting in jail after having been found guilty last year of public corruption for accepting golf outings, lavish vacations and $120,000 in “sweetheart” loans. Compared to the Clintons they are just two failed bit players.

Writing in the May issue of Commentary, Jonathan S. Tobin, a senior editor, noted the lack of a “smoking gun” in the case of just the latest Clinton scandals. “But what Democrats and all Americans should be asking about this argument is why some people get prosecuted for corruption on such circumstantial evidence while others are considered likely to be elected president.”

“Just because a prosecutor isn’t likely to haul the Clintons into court over all these astonishing coincidences (or at least not so long as the Democrats control the Department of Justice), that doesn’t mean their behavior doesn’t smell to high heaven,” said Tobin. “The court in which the Clintons deserve to be condemned is that of public opinion.”

The Clintons have conspired and sometimes acted in direct contradiction of the law to rely on the concept of circumstantial evidence. Hillary’s use of her own private email server and her later destruction of that server is a classic example of this behavior. The high-paid speeches which Bill gave put him into a gray area of collusion, benefitting from the influence Hillary had as Secretary of State. Ultimately, the donations to their foundation by foreign governments rank far above a mere misdemeanor. It was too often just blatant bribery.

I fear that far too many Americans do not realize that our nation and its system of justice are on the cusp of encountering serious damage. Merely condemning the Clintons for what we know at this point is simply not enough.

What is needed is a widespread denunciation of their actions over recent years.

What is really needed is a decision by the Democratic Party to withhold the right to run in its primaries for the office of president, based on her actions deleting emails and accepting donation to the foundation.

The U.S. media needs to be more vocal that Hillary withdraw her candidacy.

Why would a media mute its criticism and a political party ignore the obvious revelations, even if deemed circumstantial evidence, of the corruption demonstrated by the Clintons? The Clintons have been given a free pass from the day they entered politics.

As Peggy Noonan, a Wall Street Journal columnist, has said, “We are defining political deviancy down.” That degrades the process by which we select and elect the men and women who are given the role and responsibility of lawmakers.

As Noonan notes of Hillary, “The story is that this is what she does, and always has. The rules apply to others, not her.” As recently as 2012, the State Department forced the resignation of a U.S. ambassador for “in part setting up an unsanctioned private email system.”

“In 1992 the Clintons were new and golden. Now, so many years later, their reputation for rule breaking and corruption is so deep, so assumed that it really has become old news. And old news isn’t news.”

Except when it is. When old news is an unbroken succession of wrong-doing it is incumbent on everyone involved with the present “campaign” by Hillary Clinton to be the next President to not avoid the stink that arises from both the earlier and most recent revelations.

“A generation or two ago,” said Noonan, “a person so encrusted in a reputation for scandal would not be considered a possible presidential contender. She would be ineligible. Now she is inevitable.”

Those earlier generations have been replaced by those more intent on celebrity than substance. They have the attention span of fungus. They lack any vision for America, having never really learned about or absorbed the lessons that the Greatest Generation and others passed onto us.

Are there enough of them to plunge America into the Clinton cesspool by electing her President? One can only pray that the answer is no.

A pattern and practice of wrongdoing …

There appears that there is a smoking gun that many choose not to recognize or acknowledge … that Hillary Clinton willfully violated various governmental document retention policies and that her alleged deletion of her e-mails, and the other e-mail accounts used by her top lieutenants in the Department of State,  constitutes a prima facie case of destroying government documents which are the property of the United States; and which may represents a clear pattern and practice of obstructing justice knowing that there were pending court actions on FOIA requests initiated by Judicial Watch and others.

And, then there is the allegation of tampering with State Department documents with the full knowledge there was a pending Accountability Review Board’s investigation and review.

The truth may eventually come out ….

Unlike the alleged successful cover-up of the Clinton’s misuse of the DOJ, FBI, and IRS as cited in the Barrett report, some of which is still classified due to the actions of democrat Senators John Kerry, Dick Durbin and Byron Dorgan who sneakily attached a rider to an unrelated appropriations bill, this investigation may actually succeed. Trey Gowdy is an able investigator, a top-notch attorney, and a former federal prosecutor with the U.S. Attorney for the District of South Carolina. A man that knows how to conduct an investigation and elicit sworn testimony.

On April 23, 2015, Trey Gowdy, the Chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi sent a letter to Hillary Clinton’s legal counsel David Kendall containing 136 comprehensive “sample questions” that might be asked of Hillary Clinton in a House of Representatives proceeding. They are categorized by:

  • Establishment of Private Email Server (1-14)
  • Operation and Security of Private Email Server (15-37)
  • General Use of Private Email Server (38-60)
  • Use of Private Email Server for Offical Business (61-91)
  • Return of Official Records (92-118)
  • Data Retention (119-136)

Bottom line …

What more is there to say about a corrupt, lying, Marxist who is the progressive socialist democrat’s choice for President of the United States? Look to the democrats to run a socialist, Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) or Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), to make Hillary Clinton look moderate.

Sanders is a self-professed socialist, and Warren is a liar who gamed the affirmative action program by claiming she was an American Indian. With the amount of corruption in the progressive socialist democrat party, it appears that the party has become the home of the neo-Communists who do not wish America well.

It is time to avoid choosing candidates like we select celebrities on television competitions. It is time to avoid selecting candidates on the basis of historic import, color over competence, and sex over substance. It is time to VOTE FOR AMERICA by selecting a politician without a lengthy history of corruption, lying, and alleged criminal actions. A conservative candidate who knows the priorities of the American people and leaves social experiments to the states.

If we do not take action in 2016, we are so screwed.
