She SHOULD Be In Jail

Far from "criminalizing politics", Donald Trump's call for a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton's disregard of federal law was the highlight of his campaign (admittedly a low bar to clear). It is the politicized Obama justice department that deserves the Banana Republic label.

Andrew McCarthy (who else?) sets the record straight. --

And Jim Geraghty (NRO) reports that the vast majority of FBI career agents investigating the Clinton email case concluded that she should be prosecuted.

Assuming that this is true, the country would be well-served if these figures came forward and said this publicly. If that act causes these career prosecutors and agents to be fired, then those of us who want the truth need to find a way to support them and give them other career options. If, as these career agents and attorneys on the case are alleging, the FBI is no longer capable of investigating allegations of crimes committed by high-ranking elected officials, the public needs to know and the crisis in the rule of law needs to be solved.

The decision to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for mishandling classified information has roiled the FBI and Department of Justice, with one person closely involved in the year-long probe telling that career agents and attorneys on the case unanimously believed the Democratic presidential nominee should have been charged.

The source, who spoke to on the condition of anonymity, said FBI Director James Comey’s dramatic July 5 announcement that he would not recommend to the Attorney General’s office that the former secretary of state be charged left members of the investigative team dismayed and disgusted. More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate the case.

“No trial level attorney agreed, no agent working the case agreed, with the decision not to prosecute — it was a top-down decision,” said the source, whose identity and role in the case has been verified by

A high-ranking FBI official told Fox News that while it might not have been a unanimous decision, “It was unanimous that we all wanted her [Clinton’s] security clearance yanked.”

“It is safe to say the vast majority felt she should be prosecuted,” the senior FBI official told Fox News. “We were floored while listening to the FBI briefing because Comey laid it all out, and then said ‘but we are doing nothing,’ which made no sense to us.”

Isn’t this precisely the sort of situation that whistleblower protection laws are created to address?

The real tragedy of this election is that Republicans were this close to achieving a once-in-a-lifetime governance monopoly - House, Senate, President, Supreme Court and large majorities in state governorships and legislatures. All lost because one ignorant, dimwitted, racist, sexist, narcissistic, childish Democrat convinced a bunch of uninformed fools, fellow racists, ranting pundits and washed-up politicians to buy into his celebrity and con man act.

Now we're consigned to four or eight more years of the world that Obama-Clinton-Kerry made, with headlines like these (and worse to come) --

"Fiscal crisis warning as deficits rise, debt set to hit $20T next year"

"Fail: Expert Says Obamacare Might Be on the Brink of Total Collapse"

"U.S. Seen on Wrong Track by Nearly Three-Quarters of Voters"

"Islamic State Expands as Libya Descends into Chaos"

"Russia deploys nuclear-capable missiles in Kaliningrad"

"Iran deploys warships off Yemen after US, Houthis trade fire"

"Chinese newspaper threatens 'military confrontation' with US in South China Sea"

"Report on Syria conflict finds 11.5% of population killed or injured
Syrian Centre for Policy Research says 470,000 deaths is twice UN’s figure with ‘human development ruined’ after 45% of population is displaced"

And with scenes like this --

Don't worry, BO's got it covered

And his successor is waiting in the wings

...ready and anxious to implement destructive policies, such as the recently concluded (and not ratified by Congress) Paris Climate Agreement.

Bjorn Lomborg --

At a cost of between $1 trillion and $2 trillion annually, the agreement, recently ratified by China, is likely to be history's most expensive treaty. It will slow the world's economic growth to force a shift to inefficient green energy sources.

This will achieve almost nothing.

...Even if every nation were to fulfill all their carbon-cutting promises by 2030 and stick to them all the way through the century -- at a cost of more than $100 trillion in GDP -- global temperature rise will be reduced by a tiny 0.3°F.

An exemplary "progressive" project -- Spend lots of money benefitting the left's sponsors (in this case the "green" industry), producing no positive results, while doing great damage to free markets - the engine of human advancement.

Added 10/15 -- Andrew McCarthy reiterates his support for prosecuting Clinton and chastises Charles Krauthammer for siding with the "Trump is criminalizing politics" crowd. McCarthy states the case even better here than he did in his original article.

Mrs. Clinton appears to have committed serious crimes that undermined both national security and recordkeeping rules designed to promote accountability in government. If you want to talk about a truly profound threat to democratic norms, that’s the place to start. Obviously, these offenses are not just relevant but essential to the political case that should be made against Clinton, and would be by any opponent, not just by the unconventional, undisciplined Trump. Also pertinent is the fact that government officials who engage in Clinton’s type of misconduct do go to jail — to refrain from stating this would be to diminish the gravity of the crimes.

Krauthammer's article --
