How is this woman still a candidate?

I'm sure you will be just as shocked as I am to learn that Hillary Clinton has been caught lying about her emails again:
The U.S. Defense Department has found an email chain that Hillary Clinton did not give to the State Department, the State Department said on Friday, despite her saying she had provided all work emails from her time as secretary of state.

The correspondence with General David Petraeus, who was commander of U.S. Central Command at the time, started shortly before she entered office and continued during her first days as the top U.S. diplomat in January and February of 2009.

The Defense Department provided the emails to the State Department in "the last several days," State Department spokesman John Kirby said in a statement.

The exchange of 10 or so emails, the existence of which were first reported by the Associated Press on Friday, largely dealt with personnel issues, according to the State Department.

Clinton's use of a private email account connected to a server in her home instead of a government-issued email address came to light in March.

News of the previously undisclosed email thread only adds to a steady stream of revelations about the emails in the past six months, which have forced Clinton to revise her account of the setup which she first gave in March.

Nearly a third of all Democrats and 58 percent of all voters think Clinton is lying about her handling of her emails, according to a Fox News poll released this week.
At this point, it is beginning to look as if the only reason the Lizard Queen is still in the race is in the hopes of being able to get elected and pardon herself. She's not only jumping the shark, she's doing backflips over it.

Her fundamentals were always terrible. Although for Democrats above a certain weight and below a certain IQ, her support is very real. The rest have never wanted her. "Its my turn damn it!" isn't the most inspiring of campaign slogans.

The more telling Democrat candidate is Bernie Sanders. The support he is getting means that a number of Democrats feel its now safe to drop the mask. Yes, we are in fact Marxist Socialists, we don't have to lie about that anymore.

The upshot of all this is that the Democratic candidate will be Joe Biden. Since they can't have Fauxcahantoes, they will settle for loyal Old Joe. Yes, I know he's a clown but he's a clown that knows his trade. I watched the debate with Ryan, who was supposed to wipe the floor with him. He beat Ryan into the ground. Ryan was finished as national presence after Romney lost and it was that debate that did it. Biden would probably be an even worse president than Obama but that doesn't mean he's not a skilled politician, he is.

This is not to say that I think he's unbeatable because he clearly is. However it would be a big mistake to underestimate him.

She like other lefties has support because we never target her supporters the weak link in the Prog chain. I mean we talk endlessly about how fucked up lefty progs are in the head and then we go back to abstract intellectual blah blah and their leaders skate by because it is painless to stick with the cult leaders while we quote the great books.

Figured that out in the waning days of Clintoon number one's reign when all the dear media progs were complaining about having to defend them from the awful right wing, and how tiring it all was.

Recent pools: "Similarly, the Fox poll has Clinton at 44 percent, Sanders at 30 and Biden at 18 percent. The rest are at 2 percent or less."

I really think the vast majority of voters in general, and leftists especially are uninformed on anything that matters about any of the candidates. Any person that isn't stupid and thinks Sanders or Clinton have any redeeming qualities are clearly evil.

All that matters is who is backing their whoring and what are their agendas.

Here's an exchange I've had on Facebook, was with a Hillary supporter who hadn't been able to keep up with what lies he was expected to believe this week.

Me: So the server wasn't wiped after all.

Him: The server WAS wiped. She has already told everybody that. How many times does Hillary have to tell people like you it was wiped. Gawd, you are such a paranoid conspiracy freak...(and on and on for three paragraphs.)

Me: No, no. SHE is the one now saying that the server was wiped. That's an official statement. I didn't imagine it. That happened. Here's the link.

Him: ,,,

Honestly, a Trump vs Clinton election will be the best possible outcome.

Do you really think she will need a pardon? The Justice Department is so corrupt they would never pursue charges on any of the major party players in either party. They will nab the occasional low ranking congressman but they would never touch any of the party icons.

Washington operates on the whims of the ruling class and it has it's own unique rules. It would be career suicide actually trying to send one of the political elite to jail. If the threat of losing your job isn't enough the threats merely escalate from there.

"...how is it that resigning or retiring means you are never held accountable for the damage you have done?"

While it would be emotionally satisfying to send them to prison. Good government is not about what makes us feel good.

Once you start prosecuting people when they leave office, you are creating a very slippery slope.

The reason is that it is pretty much impossible to hold a high office and not commit a crime just doing day to day business. Silly but it's true.

Once good people start prosecuting bad people once they leave office, I guarantee you that bad people are going to start prosecuting good people once they leave office as well.

Good government is not about what makes us feel good.

Indeed. For another example, take the Fifth Amendment. It may keep good courts from prosecuting bad guys sometimes, but it absolutely meant to keep *bad* courts from prosecuting good guys. And that's more important, because bad guys will slip up in other ways and pay for it eventually, but bad courts will try to hang you on your own words (see SJWs).

According to Joe Trippi - who is a prominent enough commentator that the LA Times gave him about 1000 words to explain how Hilary is inevitable - her server was, yes, "a mistake", and the campaign (not her, the campaign) has been "clumsy" and "mishandled it", but otherwise, no big deal.

I see Joe Trippi's name in the news all the time in opinion columns, he's obviously a "goto" guy for incise analysis because he's on top of the whole political thing due to his vast experience.

In fact, you should believe Joe Trippi knows what he's talking about because he's worked on six Democrat presidential campaigns and at least one Democrat candidate's campaign. According to Wikipedia. And of those presidential campaigns he's been highly successful! All 6 have won! No, only 5 - wait 4 ... hang on ... let me check. Actually, none has won. He's apparently never worked on a winning campaign ... that is, never picked a winning campaign to work on. Hmm.

No Vox, Hillary is still in the race because she is one of the most avaricious and egocentric politicians of our generation. It is all for her. She views the presidency as the crowning accomplishment of 25 years. The Clintons, particularly Hillary, treated the Democratic party as a personal fiefdom ever since Billy Boy left office in 2001. This is the reason why Bill Richardson and many others endorsed Barak in 2008. They were fed up with Hillary's ego and entitlement complex.

This is one of the things I give Obama great credit for, despite disagreeing with just about everything he believes in or has done, is his masterful excising of the Clintons from the Democratic party in the 2008 race and the Clintons never forgave him. He truly deserves some kind of Nobel for this (a Nobel political prize?).

federal prosecutors are under the purview of the Executive branch.

therefore, IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN the decision of the succeeding president whether to prosecute or pardon.

The worst case scenario is Hillary wins the nom and the presidency because the MSM/PTB pushes her through playing on the first woman president bigtime. First black president was enough to put Barry in office. The hazard is if Hillary is motivated to prove her Commander-In-Chief cred by more provocations against Putin and Russia, thinking it will be easier and far less messy than any new military adventures in the ME or North Africa. US presidents seem to be surrounded by advisors that tell them that the people in possible target countries all covet the American-style democracy and freedom way-of life and will just rise up to support moving to a mongrelized cross-dressing, trans/queertopia that will enrich their privileged class even more at their expense.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spiro_Agnew
In 1973, Agnew was investigated by the United States Attorney for the District of Maryland on charges of extortion, tax fraud, bribery, and conspiracy. He was charged with having accepted bribes totaling more than $100,000 while holding office as Baltimore County Executive, Governor of Maryland, and Vice President. On October 10 that same year, Agnew was allowed to plead no contest to a single charge that he had failed to report $29,500 of income received in 1967, with the condition that he resign the office of Vice President.


impeachment is the process for expelling a SITTING member ( usually, a member of the Executive or Judiciary ) from his position. criminal / civil prosecution is IN ADDITION TOO the removal from office.

Hillery currently holds no office, therefore any action against her NOW would be a purely prosecutorial one as Congress currently has no standing to bring impeachment charges.

The hazard is if Hillary is motivated to prove her Commander-In-Chief cred by more provocations against Putin and Russia



more improperly labeled reset buttons?

frankly, i'm still hoping Hillery will stroke out during a debate.

deep enough that Obama hasn't decided to roll on her.

What would happen if he tried? Do you think it would be a double KO? It seems a bad idea to take on the Clintons.

The worst case scenario is Hillary wins the nom and the presidency because the MSM/PTB pushes her through playing on the first woman president bigtime. First black president was enough to put Barry in office.

Isn't this whole concept stupid? The first black president. No, 44 other people were president first. This isn't OMG look at the lil toddler take its first step.

doubt it. Obama is only touchable via impeachment ... i don't think the Dems in the Senate will break ranks sufficient for a 2/3s vote for conviction.

and THAT is the hurdle which must be cleared in order to get at the President.

embarrassing, humiliating, sure.

but that's as much because Obama is, at a minimum, complicit in every criminal act Hillary committed while SecState.

and we KNOW that she folded, spindled and mutilated every Official Secrets law and reg there is.

*shrugs*

Obama took Hillary out in 2008.

it can be done.

of course, it helps if the news media is covering for your ass because you make tingles run up and down their leg.

@bob k. mando

I think I get what you're saying, but I thought the context of the topic was about how it ought to work, not how it's currently being done.

In that vein, I may have to retract where I said "That's not the purview of the following official to determine, however. Never was.". Still not 100% on it being wrong though, because there's a number of things the government does that was never ever spelled out or meant to happen, but due to creative interpretations of laws they get to sneak it by.

Head's a bit fuzzy, so if I'm rambling or not making sense I apologize.

Hillery currently holds no office, therefore any action against her NOW would be a purely prosecutorial one as Congress currently has no standing to bring impeachment charges.

Of course. I wasn't suggesting Hillary get impeached (because she has no office), just that Executive branch probably isn't the best one to be investigating Executive branch crimes, regardless if it's a completely previous administration or not.

@61 "The worst case scenario is Hillary wins the nom and the presidency because the MSM/PTB pushes her through playing on the first woman president bigtime."

How is that worst case? This country is already falling apart. A Hillary presidency ensures it will burn down as it's collapsing. Also, when the country is finally on it's last gasps, we want to ensure that the blame is placed firmly on the leftists. Every Republican president prior to the collapse (even moderates like Yeb!) will make it easier for the leftists of the future to blame the right.

Ogama is probably drip-drip-dripping the news to keep the pressure up.
He can take her out of the race with a conviction, but that angers the female wing of the Democrats and would make it hard for his chosen pick to win.
Not to mention whatever the Clinton's have on him for real.

Blogger Technomad September 28, 2015 12:43 AM  

One reason that the Clintons have gotten away with so much may well be that they've got more than enough dirt on others, both in their own party and the GOP, to make sure that if they're taken down, they can take a lot of others down with them. Sort of "mutual assured destruction."

Remember all those FBI files that went walkies during the Clownton administration? Care to bet that the Executive Office Building doesn't have plenty of Xerox machines around?

@15; As one pundit put it this week, her failure will be worse than any prison she would end up in.

I think we need an empirical test of this assertion.

So, I was thinking about how laws only apply to little people any more, and "representatives" only respond to lobbyists. I was wondering why our self-appointed elites are so stupid, since that has always ended poorly for them in the long run, when I realized that it's a game theory problem.

Collectively, they would be better off not twisting every rule and pushing every advantage until the pitchforks and torches came out. Individually, they might as well, since they expect their peers to, so the revolution is always inevitable, and they would just be shortchanging themselves in the meantime.
