In Case You've Wondered
My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.
If you're here for the stories, I started another blog: scratchingforchange.blogspot.com
One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.
I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Setting the Bar
A former CIA officer was sentenced for selling state secrets for $25,000. The link describes the sentence, which is harsh, which it should be. It was a crime that deserves such punishment, and should set the bar for the results of Hillary's shenanigans. In my opinion, her punishment should be life in prison, or a harsher punishment.

The laws that apply to you and me have never applied to her or those of her ilk. I wonder if Barr will change that.ReplyDelete
We'll see. The media will try to downplay any charges, but when facts are revealed, the media will be shown to be complicit.Delete

a result of Spygate.
Heads ARE rolling.
Foreign intelligence realizes there's a new sheriff in town. To keep in the loop, they'll have to expose operatives involved with the coup, and come clean with their efforts.Delete

Firing squad, working from the feet northwards.
Some would call it treason, which it is. The firing squad is the correct punishment for this crime.Delete
And Here I thought you wanted the other bar. I was going to make suggestions, Jack, Jim, Johnny, Bud, etcReplyDelete

Q: What is the difference between Hillary Clinton and a ham sandwich?
A: You can indict a ham sandwich.
Pretty funny, huh?
As things are progressing, if they finally get around to prosecuting Hillary, they'll have to exhume her for the trial.Delete
okay, time for me to be reviled.ReplyDelete
My personal opinion of HRC is that she is guilty of many things and I would really like (love) to see her before a bar of Justice.
However, I have to remind myself and others that until such time as that happens and she is found guilty of some of her various crimes,(I'm not willing to believe she will be charged with everything), she must be presumed innocent.
This isn't to defend her, but to defend us. If we can find her "guilty" in the court of public opinion, we are no better than those who find us guilty the same way.
The law must apply to all. Including the presumption of innocence.

You're right, but according to Comey, she broke laws, and his opinion was no prosecutor would attempt to bring the information to a grand jury. That leads to what appears as a criminal conspiracy, which is against the law too.Delete
Our justice system is described as multi-tiered, which translates to wealth and power as permission to break laws. That contradicts the basic reason for the our republic.
Jesss, I agree with both you and Comey that the laws were broken,and(since I try not to associate with the brain dead )I don't know anybody who doesn't think HRC was one of the lawbreakers. However, until she is found guilty in a court of law,we must,for our own protection and good conscience,treat her as innocent.ReplyDelete
Yes, our justice system is ,"multi tiered",but that refers to the various levels of courts from district to Supreme. That having been said, do I believe that money/power/position don't play a part? No more than I believe in buying oceanfront property in Wyoming.Does this mean that like Lee Harvey Oswald she may die as an innocent person in the eyes of the law? Very likely. Am I happy with that? Hell no! Am I willing to give up the principle of ,"Innocent until proven guilty" ? Also Hell no! We all may need that principle ourselves one day.

The peril of a two tiered system is the majority of the unwashed masses either are subjugated, or eventually rise to release their bonds and obtain liberty.Delete
I was thinking a more appropriate crime would be to 'dox' him and sentence him to wear a perpetual drone flying 10 feet over his head that announces he is a traitor to the country. Then I realized that would probably just get him the CNN anchor job.ReplyDelete
