United States of Divert, Deny and Lie

It’s mourning again in America, and Hillary has avoided one more obstacle in her grand anointing process. Welcome to the Department of Injustice.

Comey punted and claimed “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case”. Ouch, take that America. Those laws and justice that you value are not even a speed bump to the privileged elite ruling-class who operate above the law. (actually, it is beneath the law but who is arguing.) Cleanup in isle two!

Two people are now relieved, Hillary and Loretta Lynch. Well, Bill Clinton is three.

I thought “extremely careless” was being negligent.

While all the attention now shifts to the bombshell that FBI director is recommending no charges be filed, it diverts the emphasis off of the whole ordeal. It seems Comey was talking about a narrow statute dealing with classified information, but that was not the genesis of the scandal.

Long before the classified was sent or received, she set up an email system to obfuscate accountability and divert from archives and the FOIA system. If that is not willful intent going to all that trouble to set this up, I don’t know what is. So they gave immunity to the techie, then, for what?

It was not just a matter of some classified emails, which she lied about. It is the whole thing from the time she entered office to the time she left. But nothing is chargeable. It seemed all they wanted to look at in their FBI investigation was the classified emails. And how else would she correspond with Syd Blumenthal, out of the loop of State, if not on that server?

So, Hillary got her way when she claimed this was a security review. In effect, that is what it became. But there is a good article on the miscarriage of justice issue this is in Reason Magazine by Judge Andrew Napolitano. What about the Inspector General’s report that was just released?

Inspector General’s Report Refutes All of Hillary Clinton’s Defenses For Using Private Email Server

The Democratic frontrunner is painted as stubborn, self-isolated, and unaccountable in IG’s report.

Andrew Napolitano | June 2, 2016 | Reason.com

Late last week, the inspector general of the State Department completed a year-long investigation into the use by Hillary Clinton of a private email server for all of her official government email as secretary of state. The investigation was launched when information technology officials at the State Department under Secretary of State John Kerry learned that Clinton paid an aide to migrate her public and secret State Department email streams away from their secured government venues and onto her own, non-secure server, which was stored in her home.

The migration of the secret email stream most likely constituted the crime of espionage — the failure to secure and preserve the secrecy of confidential, secret or top-secret materials.

The inspector general interviewed Clinton’s three immediate predecessors — Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice — and their former aides about their email practices. He learned that none of them used emails as extensively as Clinton, none used a private server and, though Powell and Rice occasionally replied to government emails using private accounts, none used a private account when dealing with state secrets.

Clinton and her former aides declined to cooperate with the inspector general, notwithstanding her oft-stated claim that she “can’t wait” to meet with officials and clear the air about her emails.

The inspector general’s report is damning to Clinton. It refutes every defense she has offered to the allegation that she mishandled state secrets. It revealed an email that hadn’t been publicly made known showing Clinton’s state of mind. And it paints a picture of a self-isolated secretary of state stubbornly refusing to comply with federal law for venal reasons; she simply did not want to be held accountable for her official behavior.

The report rejects Clinton’s argument that her use of a private server “was allowed.” The report makes clear that it was not allowed, nor did she seek permission to use it. She did not inform the FBI, which had tutored her on the lawful handling of state secrets, and she did not inform her own State Department IT folks.

The report also makes clear that had she sought permission to use her own server as the instrument through which all of her email traffic passed, such a request would have been flatly denied.

Well, America, if you were not disgusted before, then this was another thumb in the eye to remind you how repulsive this whole process has been. Hillary operated for four years on an island of her own creation Then, when questioned, she lied, lied, lied. And that is beside what she did in Benghazi which is what set off all the red flares . She set the stage to get four Americans killed, and abandoned them both before and after their slaughter.

Comey covered his ass and preserved his job under a possible Hillary presidency. To say politics, and who the Clintons are, had nothing to do with it is ludicrous. This whole thing was loaded with politics. It would take Loretta Lynch bucking that recommendation to bring charges. Then it would be her own decision to do that, which she won’t do. To borrow a Bill Clinton phrase, “this whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.”

The very day after we celebrated the 240th 4th of July, James Comey came out to deliver the recommendation of no charges. Loretta Lynch had been caught a week before in a private meeting with Bill Clinton. Now, as Comey spoke Obama amd Hillary were preparing to board AF-1 for a campaign rally in North Carolina for Hillary.

What a photo op, while she is escaping a major leg of suspicion about her future, she is hitting the trail with the President, as his Director in the Justice department is basically unindicting her. That beats a corsage While Comey claimed politics or influences have nothing to do with it, clearly they were on full display.

Then arriving in NC, with the President campaigning at her side, Hillary comes on stage with her “this is my fight song” music playing. That is an insult to the legacy of Benghazi. She’s been fighting against the damning Benghazi facts since the attack, amid another campaign for Obama’s reelection. From one political campaign to another — all politics.

    This is my fight song
    Take back my life song
    Prove I’m alright song
    My power’s turned on
    Starting right now I’ll be strong
    I’ll play my fight song
    And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
    ‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me

    — Rachel Platten, “Fight Song”

They never mentioned escaping the FBI intent to prosecute. Though she did refer to Obama’s birth certificate aimed at Trump. Was she comparing the two?

Her first words were, “I feel very privileged” to be with Obama, a friend she stood with, talking about their “memorable experiences” she and Obama had together, joking and mocking Trump. Well, Benghazi might be a memorable one too, if it weren’t for all their denial from the beginning. Strange irony that Hillary says Trump is unqualified and temperamentally unfit for the office. She is the heiress of unqualified.

Finally, Obama lectured, “when a crisis hits” what do you do he asks? “You got to make the tough calls,” he said. So when a crisis hits they lie, lie and lie some more. Then divert, deny, distract and obstruct the truth finding… that’s what they do. He’s ready to pass the baton to Hillary. Well, that is after our government collectively passed the opportunity to hold Hillary or Obama accountable for their boatload of scandals.

But these are strange days when a tweet is more important than a national security, felony scandal. And what Trump says about it is more important than what Hillary did.

Realated: It takes a village to elect a crook

Clinton foundation full of red flags

With so Many Red Flags, Why Isn’t the IRS Auditing the Clinton Foundation?

by Charles Ortel – 16 Mar 2015 | Breitbart

Sixteen months ago, Nicholas Confessore and Amy Chozick wrote in The New York Times about the loose governance and financial performance of the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. For example, after more than 10 years in operation, the Foundation had internal controls that were only just coming into play, while financial disclosures seemed sloppy and even misleading.

In addition, two months have elapsed since Eric Braverman– the talented executive recruited in July 2013 to put the Clinton Foundation back into order– resigned unexpectedly several weeks following renewal of his long-term management contract by the Board of Directors.

Actually accounting for financial impact?

Media reports suggest Braverman lost out fighting the melange of Clinton loyalists who behave as Bill and Hillary have done throughout their adult lives: acting as if rules are for other people and noble ends justify transgressions, even egregious ones.

The answer from the Clinton mobile defense team is “there is no there there” or “no evidence has been produced that….” And the response to that is Bill and Hillary Clinton are involved, need we say more? With the track record of the shady, sleazy politics and activity of the Clintons, their involvement anywhere should require an investigation.

After all, the IRS audits and investigates any other players, even for years. Yet they haven’t looked into the foundation money trail and State? It takes global-sized blinders to ignore that. Meanwhile, the DoJ has attacked businesses’ like gun dealers — not to mention guitar manufacturers –and seized bank accounts for simply making objectionable deposits or purchases. They confiscate the funds as well. But in this case, there is not a huge investigation. Rather Clintonista supporters are offended when someone reports facts which themselves are the smoking gun. Businesses get operation Choke point, Clintons and their foundation get “it does so much good.”

We already have a president in office who is not impeachable no matter what he seems to do. Then we have a foundation with direct government connections that is apparently off limits and immune from investigation or audit by the IRS for its flagrant practices. Again, all of it so scandalous and the Clintonites say there is no evidence. There doesn’t have to be, just the egregious appearance of so many abuses and conflicts are quite enough.

Suppose a public official has money in his pocket and gave favorable treatment to the source. Then people say but nothing connects that money in his pocket with the favorable treatment. They say there is no evidence. So when (LA) William Jefferson had all that money in his freezer he could have said, “nothing connects it to my actions.” Case closed. It is absurd that we do not investigate it. Why hasn’t there been some sting operation by FBI? Is it because Clintons are above and beyond the reach of the law?

Then again, Politico magazine described the rifts and rivalry within the foundation. Struggles that ensued when daughter Chelsea brought in a new CEO to right the ship. (replacing Clinton loyalist Bruce Lindsey)He resigned after getting board support.

The previously untold saga of Braverman’s brief, and occasionally fraught tenure trying to navigate the Clintons’ insular world highlights the challenges the family has faced trying to impose rigorous oversight onto a vast global foundation that relies on some of the same loyal megadonors Hillary Clinton will need for the presidential run sources have said she is all but certain to launch later this year. — Politico

An investigation with teeth or IRS audit is justified. Instead, we read the facts to a chorus of denials about evidence. Let’s all take a stupid pill. That will solve it. Plus while Hillary was at State and her server was in NY, State had no confirmed Inspector General. An obvious outsourced server would have set off alarms.

Townhall

Bill Clinton and President Obama had an agreement that the Clinton Foundation would not accept any new donations from most governments while she was Secretary of State, and that any new, or increased, donations would be subject to State Department review. Of course, that didn’t really happen, and Clinton has failed to disclose the foundation’s donors since 2010, despite a 2008 promise to do so on an annual basis.

Bloomberg reported on the IG problem, obvious to anyone that cared — and certainly would be known to Hillary Clinton.

Instead of that being a problem, we were told ‘there is no evidence of any wrongdoing.’ Now we see how instrumental her server violation was and it was in NY close to the Foundation operation. Did anyone cry about not confirming an IG? They have had a similar situation in the Department of Interior. So, again, objectionable businesses get operation Choke Point, and the State Department under Hillary did not get an inspector general. If any place needed one at that time, it was State.

What Oversight at State ?

Lack of oversight and Inspector General in the State Department. Surprise.

Obama chained State watchdog while Clinton sent emails

By Susan Crabtree | March 10, 2015 | Washington Examiiner

President Obama made sure there was no official watchdog supervising the State Department while Hillary Clinton was secretly sending her emails using a private server.

The president has a duty to appoint independent inspectors general at every federal agency, but Obama left the position vacant at the State Department throughout Clinton’s entire four-year tenure.

The White House has deflected responsibility for more than a week for Clinton’s use of private emails while she was secretary of state.

But Obama bears direct responsibility for a lax ethics environment that may have allowed Clinton to work without any real oversight, government accountability groups say.

“The White House is saying that the State Department has responsibility for making sure their officials and staff follow the law, but the White House is responsible for making sure they have the tools to do that and they fell down on that job in making sure they have the No. 1 tool, and that’s an inspector general,” John Wonderlich, policy director at the Sunlight Foundation, a non-partisan open-government group, told the Washington Examiner.

Compound that with all the questions regarding the missing 6 billion dollars at State under Hillary’s tenure as Secretary. That has been another question since at least April 2014. Just so happens and all of it purely coincidental. (wink-wink, nod-nod) The second article above reports State went without IG for 5 years, an historical record.

What didn’t they know and when didn’t they know it?
