Hillary and Bill can't whack the moles fast enough...

Error message

When I read last Friday that James Comey, the director of the FBI, had informed Congress their investigation of Hillary Clinton's e-mail was being renewed through examination of the e-mail of Huma Abedin they found on her husband Anthony's computer, I thought to myself, "all bets are off." My conviction has only deepened since then.

Read two things: first, this transcript of...

Rush Limbaugh's program today, including his summary of Bret Baier's reporting on Fox News last night concerning the anger of (everyone's assuming) FBI agents at the attempts of the Department to obstruct the agents' work. The real issue isn't national security, but Bill and Hillary leaving the White House "dead broke" (as Hillary complained at the time), but now a few years later being worth a third of a billion dollars.

The real issue here is pay for play through the Clinton Foundation. This investigation will continue whether or not Hillary becomes president.

Second, read this oped from the Brits' Guardian forwarded to me by my brother David. Titled "Forget the FBI cache; the Podesta emails show how America is run," the piece gives the big picture of the way queens, lords, and Oxbridge women oppress the middle and working classes in these United States. This is the second time in this election cycle I've thought the Brits got it right when no mainstream media rag came close.

The piece ends:

This genre of Podesta email, in which people try to arrange jobs for themselves or their kids, points us toward the most fundamental thing we know about the people at the top of this class: their loyalty to one another and the way it overrides everything else. Of course Hillary Clinton staffed her state department with investment bankers and then did speaking engagements for investment banks as soon as she was done at the state department. Of course she appears to think that any kind of bank reform should “come from the industry itself”. And of course no elite bankers were ever prosecuted by the Obama administration. Read these emails and you understand, with a start, that the people at the top tier of American life all know each other. They are all engaged in promoting one another’s careers, constantly.

Everything blurs into everything else in this world. The state department, the banks, Silicon Valley, the nonprofits, the “Global CEO Advisory Firm” that appears to have solicited donations for the Clinton Foundation. Executives here go from foundation to government to thinktank to startup. There are honors. Venture capital. Foundation grants. Endowed chairs. Advanced degrees. For them the door revolves. The friends all succeed. They break every boundary.

But the One Big Boundary remains. Yes, it’s all supposed to be a meritocracy. But if you aren’t part of this happy, prosperous in-group – if you don’t have John Podesta’s email address – you’re out.

Finally, remember that all the Brits lied to the pollsters about Brexit, but then it happened.

People know what the chattering class wants to hear and no one feels any duty to be honest with them.

After all, we know they never stop lying to us.
