DOJ has Failed

The Department of Justice under the Trump Administration has made a grievous error in judgment. The Assistant Attorney General Kevin Boyd has announced that the DOJ will not pursue charges against Lois Lerner for her direct role in denying tax-exempt status to conservative organizations during the Obama Administration.

The reasoning? Not enough available evidence to reopen the investigation. That is absurd. The very purpose of an investigation is to gather evidence that will lead to prosecution and conviction. Again the Trump Administration is failing to do the job it promised to do during the presidential campaign.

Two very important actions must be taken by the Department of Justice. These actions will not only save face for the Administration but they will fulfill the President’s campaign promises to the American people who elected him to that high office.

The Attorney General of the United States must open investigations and bring charges against Lois Lerner and Hillary Clinton. Both have committed crimes against the United States and the American people. One has committed Treason. And both should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Leftist Lexicon Word of the Week

Spring is here, and young hearts are all abloom with feelings of love. Except on the Left. Their hearts are full of treason accusations against President Donald Trump. From allegations of collusion with Russia to not releasing his tax returns, the Left is obsessed with throwing out the word “treason” with the frequency they throw out “racist”, “sexist”, “homophobe”, or “gimmie.”

But, as with other words, the Left might have a problem with the actual definition.

treason

What the Left believes it means – working against the government in any way, usually when it runs counter to Leftist beliefs

What it really means – working against the government, usually when it runs counter to American values

Treason is a serious charge, and it should not be tossed around lightly. In fact, it holds a punishment of execution, according to the Constitution. And when you consider Leftists are typically against execution, it strikes me as funny they would go right for the treason card against Trump.

Where the Left and reality part company in this case is what is being assaulted. When we think of treason, we think of it in terms of acting against the country for personal benefit. When the Left thinks of treason, they think of it in terms of acting against their ideology.

Remember the government shutdowns of the Clinton and Obama Presidencies? Congressional Republicans were called traitors for daring to shut down the government and weaken the country. Of course, the country got along quite well without the federal government for a few days, so it wasn’t the end of the world. It was, however, the height of treason to the Left, who believes the government is the answer to everything.

On the other hand, there’s the case of Bradley/Chelsea Manning, someone who gave information to Julian Assange of Wikileaks fame. One could make the argument Manning fits the label of traitor more closely than Ted Cruz does. Of course, I don’t think Cruz could pull off the sex change that well without looking like himself in drag. And as somebody who remembers Rudy Giuliani in drag, let me just say I would not recommend the good Senator from Texas make that change.

Yet, in the grand scheme of things, the Left lionizes Manning for actual treason and condemns Cruz for perceived treason. That alone should tell you all you need to know about the Left’s definition of the word.

One can also look at how the Left treats opposing speech for a clue as to what they mean. When Bill Clinton was President, dissent was traitorous. When George W. Bush was President, dissent was patriotic. When Barack Obama was President, dissent was traitorous again. Now that Donald Trump is President, dissent is patriotic again. Why, it’s almost as if the Left thinks treason is related to who is in the Oval Office! That’s…incredibly stupid.

Dissent in and of itself isn’t treason. It’s when that dissent becomes harmful to society as a whole that people cross into Treasonland. And, no, shutting down the government or voicing displeasure at a President’s policies don’t even come close. What does? Helping a foreign government attack America.

You know, like Ted Kennedy did with the former Soviet Union during the Reagan Presidency? (And let’s not forget Kennedy is still held in high regards within Leftist circles.)

Let’s not forget the Right in this conversation, though. I have been called a traitor by self-identified conservatives for suggesting we could do a better job at reining in military spending to avoid waste. Yet, these same self-identified conservatives blow a gasket whenever Congress wastes money on research into snail darter love-making techniques. (Not to say snail darter porn isn’t enjoyable, mind you. Okay, maybe I’ve said too much.)

Regardless of which side of the aisle you reside, calling someone a traitor isn’t something you want to do unless you have hard evidence. Otherwise you’re adding to the bad blood between people and parties. Besides, calling people dumbasses is much more fun.

Above the Law

The Clinton’s sit like Kings of old. They are the law and they above it. This has been seen in the past. And we see it again with Hillary Clinton now.

The FBI has stated the facts of the case. She did send 110 emails that contained classified information. She willingly admitted to deleting emails. This is obstruction of justice and destroying evidence. The accused doesn’t get to decide what evidence is relevant or not in any investigation. Her private email servers could have been hacked by unknown 3rd parties. And many more emails have been retroactively declared classified.

Yet the FBI states they will not press charges against Hillary Clinton. Why not? Because she and her staff, although extremely careless, they did not act intentionally to break the law.

The very idea infuriates me. If I were to destroy potential evidence because I personally thought it wasn’t relative to the investigation. I would be charged for that crime. If I were to inadvertently leak classified information in an insecure email. I would loose security clearance, and be facing criminal charges. Even if I were to inadvertently speed while driving carelessly. I would have a ticket, be getting fined, and having all kinds of repercussions.

But not a Clinton. Not the Queen of the Democratic Party. She is untouchable. The laws of our nation simply do not apply to Hillary Clinton. Besides what difference does it make?

Ignorance of the law and one’s intent have never been excuses or justifications for violating the law. If a Republican presidential candidate had done this, charges would be filed. But Hillary Clinton gets out of jail free.
