Big news out of Washington today: Hillary Clinton will not be indicted for her e-mail issues.
All of the FOX viewers and the rest of the folks in the right- wing echo chamber are shocked and upset, because their puppet masters who manipulate their thinking really had them believing that there was a chance that the democratic nominee president of the United States was going to be criminally indicted.
The rest of us, of course, knew better. We knew that the standard was such that it would make it very hard to prove criminal intent, and only partisans on the right could even attempt to argue that she broke the law as outlined under 18 U.S.C.A. § 1924(a), or the more serious 18 U.S.C.A § 793, which is actually a felony.
So now that the FBI director--- a man who is very much a republican, appointed by a republican president, and who voted for the last two republican candidates--- has let Clinton off the hook, wingnut heads are exploding. I actually feel for them, because deep in their hearts they really do believe that the system is rigged in favor of those on the left. If only.
Anyway, what's amazing is that her opponent has been given a pass with his own legal and ethical issues, and stories like this one are being ignored by the main stream media. The man is mentioned in over 169 federal lawsuits, and has all types of serious legal issues of his own , but, you know, Hillary's e-mails. Let's keep focusing on those damn e-mails. Even after we have earned from the FBI director that there will be no charges filed against Clinton, we are still being bombarded with silly what if hypotheticals by talking- heads and cable news pundits, whose favorite pastime is pontificating about all things Hillary.
It would be nice to get back to the issues and hear what the candidates have in mind for our future.
We know that trump wants to "make America great again", but we don't know how he plans to do it. He gets a lot of love from the white supremacist crowd, so you will excuse us black folks if those words from his campaign slogan makes us all a little nervous.
We know that Hillary Clinton says that she will carry on president Obama's legacy, and he (president Obama) was out campaigning with her today and telling us to believe her.
The president seemed to be enjoying himself on the stump, and I know that deep down he wishes that he could go for another term.
If I am going to be totally honest, I think that we are all starting to feel that way.
