For over 225 years our nation’s military has served this country proudly - our fighting men and women have pulled this nation’s ass out of the fire repeatedly - Europe likewise.
However, on this July 4th - unlike any other I have seen in my 72 years - I look around and see a nation in complete disarray. No, make that utter chaos and turmoil on every level.
Dishonesty and unethical behavior has always been a part of the human condition and it shall always be so. However, over the last 4 decades these human foibles have been practiced to the point they have now become an art form - the “new normal”. And it is both inescapable and unacceptable - and yet, as a people, we seem all too willing to pretend it doesn’t exist, tune in the Kardasians and/or simply accept it.
At the present time we have a former president, Bill Clinton, who appointed our nation’s current AG, Loretta Lynch, to the District Court of New York 20 years ago. We have a president, Barack Obama, who appointed Ms. Lynch to be the nation’s Attorney General and to, among other things, oversee investigations of past/present members of his administration and their actions.
President Obama wants Hillary Clinton to become the next President in spite of her being the subject of a criminal investigation, in spite of Benghazi - he wants his “legacy” preserved and moved forward.
Hillary Clinton has been under criminal investigation by the AG/Justice Department/FBI for well over a year for exposing US secret documents and emails over a private server she had set up in her home - one owned by her and her husband, Bill Clinton. The investigation has dragged out specifically due to her stonewalling, demonstrable lying and her State Department’s lack of cooperation in turning over subpoenaed materials.
Last week, AG Lynch took a private meeting with Bill Clinton, himself the focus along with his wife,Hillary, of a parallel investigation regarding the Clinton Foundation - a foundation largely funded by foreign donations from nations harboring, if not outright sponsoring, Islamic terrorists.
And all of this investigative work is being supervised/presided over by none other than the Obama appointee, Loretta Lynch - the individual FBI Director, James Comey, answers to.
The level of duplicitous, unethical behavior, along with the appearance of impropriety and conflict of interest in this matter cannot be overstated. The entire investigative process stinks like crap. It is tainted beyond repair.
In spite of the on-going conduct by the Clintons the chances of a criminal indictment against Hillary, we are told, rests on the shoulders of one man - FBI Director, James Comey - whom we are assured by our government officials is above reproach.
To which I say, BULLSHIT!! I have yet to see/hear any government official associated with this case, or any other recent case handled by the Justice Department, who can be counted upon to level with the nation. Remember “Fast And Furious”, the IRS debacle - how about the two Black Panthers intimidation of voters in 2008 in Philadelphia? No action by the Attorney General on any of this. The administration was allowed by the Justice Department (Attorney General) to stonewall their way out of one scandalous mess after another.
As with all of the long list of investigations under this administration I find it impossible to believe that the scales of justice aren’t heavily weighted in favor of the “home team” - I see NOTHING to suggest anything significant will come of the email probe. The findings will probably note she shouldn’t have used a private server, but she had no INTENT to expose state secrets on her “home brew”, non-secure device. In short, nothing to see here!!
So, it is with heavy heart that I am going on the record to say this on July 4th: Should this Clinton travesty end up as all recent investigative travesties have ended - without accountability and with no bill of indictment - I will hereby declare that if I were of military age I would NOT serve. If I had children of military age I would encourage them NOT to serve.
There is no way I would fight and lay down my life in order to preserve this level of bullshit and the freedoms of those 51% of the people who don’t give a rat’s ass!! This is a bridge too far.
That’s my line in the sand - my bill of no confidence in our government or those who serve in it!! Specifically Barack Obama and, should she capture the presidency, Hillary Clinton…
