Mark your political calendar. Today the Director of the FBI drove a spike through the heart of our living “Rule of Law.” It has been written by a wise man from our distant past that great civilizations and empires are ended, not from an outside force, but from political suicide. Under President Obama,it seems, the entire federal government has become corrupt. The IRS, CIA, State, Defense, Attorney General, DHS, HHS, EPA, leaders of both political parties and of Congress have bent to serve a wimpy but focused Executive branch that seems dedicated to destroying (transforming) our proud powerful nation. Transparency has been discarded for cover ups and spinning. From labor figures, to battlefield progress, to economic growth, no government figures can be trusted.
All that pales when placed alongside the FBI announcement that their Director cannot recommend charges be brought against Hillary Clinton by the Justice Department. Note the announcement came just days after a secret meeting between former President Clinton and the Attorney-General, even though he was a probable witness in a real or imagined investigation into the Clinton Foundation, and the very day that President Obama was joining Hillary on a campaign swing in North Carolina.
America is founded on the premise that the law must treat all citizens fairly and equally. Not that there haven’t been examples of privileged citizens receiving special treatment, but nothing as blatant as the optics of the Clinton FBI scam. Probably the FBI ranks up there with the Supreme Court when it comes to the people’s trust. Don’t see how that trust can remain with the tortured statement delivered by the FBI Director. He had his chance to support “The Rule of Law” and opted, it seems, for political expediency. Whatever else he and his Agency do from now, this day will be marked as the day the nation’s chief law enforcer blinked, putting our freedom in greater danger.
My latest novel, The Sub Rosa Manuscript by Barry Kelly gives, I believe, a clear understandable account of the steady erosion of the personal and economic freedom we inherited from the sacrifices of those who went before us. It is now our turn to protect our inheritance by rejecting the empty promises of progressivism.
