Hillary wasn’t cleared, she was just shown to be above the law the rest of us have to abide by. – Charlie Daniels via Twitter
Yesterday was a seminal moment in American History, as a Former Secretary of State proved that the laws of our land are for “the Common People”, i.e., you and me.
Foxnews.com summarizes how Hillary was “forgiven” by her peers.
FBI Director James Comey said he is not recommending criminal charges over Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.
“We are expressing our view that no charges are appropriate in this case,” said Comey, adding that the investigation was done “competently and independently” and that he knows the recommendation will bring scrutiny.
The announcement comes after Clinton was interviewed Saturday by the FBI for three-and-a-half hours.
Comey said that despite his recommendation that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case,” the final decision rests with the Department of Justice.
He said the FBI cannot find a previous case “that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts.”
Comey emphasized that no one in the government had any advance knowledge about his announcement. Before the announcement, he laid out the totality of Clinton’s actions in mishandling classified information.
Comey said there were 110 emails in 52 email chains that were determined to contain classified information “at the time they were sent.”
Comey said it was “extremely careless” for Clinton to send those messages on unsecured, non-government servers.
He said the investigation found no evidence that Clinton intentionally deleted work-related emails to conceal them from the public.
Comey said there was no “direct evidence” that Clinton’s server was hacked, but personal emails of people to whom Clinton sent emails were compromised.
He said it’s “possible” that hostile actors gained access to Clinton’s emails.
Comey explained that Clinton used several servers and devices to send emails while she was at the State Department.
Comey said the investigation was “painstaking” and required thousands of hours of work by agents. He likened it to putting together a massive “jigsaw puzzle.”
The recommendation from Comey comes after a private meeting between former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch last week.
Lynch, maintaining she did not discuss the case with Mr. Clinton, vowed Friday she would accept the FBI’s recommendation on whether to pursue charges in the email case.
Recently, I have been writing about how the Political Atmosphere in America, as we head toward the upcoming presidential election of 2016, is reminiscent of the American Revolution and the events leading up to it.
After the political chicanery orchestrated by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton , while serving as Secretary of State under President Barack Hussein Obama and its subsequent investigation by the FBI, which came to its conclusion yesterday, with the refusal of the FBI and the Department of Justice to indict the Presumptive Democrat Presidential Candidate, as a result of her repeated violations of the Espionage Act, the following realization has struck me directly between the eyes.
While I still believe that we are about to witness an American Voter Revolution this November, I realized this revolution has elements of the French Revolution of 1789 in which the Common People rose up against the French Aristocracy.
- Before the revolution in France, a time known as the Ancien Regime,
society was divided into three distinct classes, known as the Three
- The First Estate was the clergy, who were people, including priests,who ran both the Catholic church and some aspects of the country. In addition to keeping registers of births, deaths and marriages, the clergy also had the power to levy a 10% tax known as the tithe.
- The Second Estate consisted of the nobility of France, including members of the royal family, except for the King. Members of the Second Estate did not have to pay any taxes. They were also awarded special priviliges, such as the wearing a sword and hunting. Like the clergy, they also collected taxes from the Third Estate.
- The Third Estate was made up of everyone else, from peasant farmers to the bourgeoisie – the wealthy business class. While the Second Estate was only 1% of the total population of France, the Third Estate was 96%, and had none of the rights and priviliges of the other two estates.
- Historians believe that one of the reasons the French Revolution came about was the disatisfaction of members of the Third Estate, including
members of the royal family, except for the King. Members of the
Second Estate did not have to pay any taxes. They were also
awarded special priviliges, such as the wearing a sword and hunting.
Like the clergy, they also collected taxes from the Third Estate.
- The Third Estate was made up of everyone else, from peasant
farmers to the bourgeoisie – the wealthy business class. While the
Second Estate was only 1% of the total population of France, the
Third Estate was 96%, and had none of the rights and priviliges of
the other two estates.

What Americans witnessed yesterday was an unequal application of the rule of law as applies to Professional Politicians in general and, in this case, specifically, a former member of the Obama Administration.
As I am narrating today’s post into my phone this morning, the CBS Morning News just flashed up a poll in which 60% of Americans believe that Clinton lied about her mishandling of emails which contain top secret information Kama which could have potentially put the lives of our military and covert operatives st risk.
Now, that was a CBS poll, which of course is weighted heavily in favor of Liberals, so you can imagine how folks like you and me out here in flyover country feel about the situation.
Our government was never meant to be a feudal system. America remains a constitutional republic.
American Politicians were never meant to be Lords, who would remain in power in perpetuity. Our Founding Fathers envisioned Citizen Statesman, who after serving their country and their communities for a short period of time, would return to their homes, to their families, and to their trades.
What happened yesterday was a prime example of why our Founders set up the System of Checks and Balances that they did when they were constructing our system of government.
Obama, the Department of Justice, and the clintons circumvented that system with a series of maneuvers carried out between the White House, the campaign Trail, and a private jet idling on a Tarmac at an airport.
Come November, as Americans, we will have an opportunity to voice how we feel about this travesty of Justice in November of this year.
Unlike the French Revolution, we won’t have to entrust our future to Madame Guillotine.
Our country’s future will be entrusted to The Ballot Box.
This November, remember July 5th, 2016 as the day that Hillary Clinton was proven to be above the law.
And, vote accordingly.
Liberté, égalité, fraternité
Until He Comes,
