What would happen now if this were a sane world

As John Kass at the Chicago Tribune says, The Freedom-Haters would demand that Madame BleachBit take herself out of the running:

The best thing would be for Democrats to ask her to step down now. It would be the most responsible thing to do, if the nation were more important to them than power. And the American news media — fairly or not firmly identified in the public mind as Mrs. Clinton's political action committee — should begin demanding it.
But what will Hillary do?
She'll stick and ride this out and turn her anger toward Comey. For Hillary and Bill Clinton, it has always been about power, about the Clinton Restoration and protecting fortunes already made by selling nothing but political influence.
She'll remind the nation that she's a woman and that Donald Trump said terrible things about women. If there is another notorious Trump video to be leaked, the Clintons should probably leak it now. Then her allies in media can talk about misogyny and sexual politics and the headlines can be all about Trump as the boor he is and Hillary as champion of female victims, which she has never been.
Remember that Bill Clinton leveraged the "Year of the Woman." Then he preyed on women in the White House and Hillary protected him. But the political left — most particularly the women of the left — defended him because he promised to protect abortion rights and their other agendas.
If you take a step back from tribal politics, you'll see that Mrs. Clinton has clearly disqualified herself from ever coming near classified information again. If she were a young person straight out of grad school hoping to land a government job, Hillary Clinton would be laughed out of Washington with her record. She'd never be hired.
As secretary of state she kept classified documents on the home-brew server in her basement, which is against the law. She lied about it to the American people. She couldn't remember details dozens of times when questioned by the FBI. Her aides destroyed evidence by BleachBit and hammers. Her husband, Bill, met secretly on an airport tarmac with Attorney General Loretta Lynch for about a half-hour, and all they said they talked about was golf and the grandkids.
And there was no prosecution of Hillary.
That isn't merely wrong and unethical. It is poisonous.
Where things go from here will tell us whether this country is truly flatlining.


  1. I read that this morning. Kass is a Trump supporter. This lifelong Dem says she should hang in there and make her prosecutors charge her, try her and get their goddam conviction if their case is so fucking good. Never, never, never give up Hillie!

  2. Quitting the race or making her quit would be tantamount to letting the very dangerous Donald R. Trump fire another one. He must not be president and he must be fought every step of the way. Never Trump!

  3. I know lawyers and I know this thing can drag out for 3 or 4 years. Throw the book at her. Then shut the fuck up!

  4. You don't really think she'd make a good president by any definition, do you? She's a foul, evil human being who has a track record of endangering national security - not to mention a love of Alinsky-ism, and not to mention enabling a sexually grotesque husband whom she has never loved, but stayed with so she could have a path to power.

  5. Trump's daughter-in-law says he forced the FBI's hand. She also says he's always championed women. Yeah, anything not fat, not old, and well, with grabbable pussies, lending new meaning to the word snatch. Now you are the judge of when a woman loves a man? Well, that's not fringe, you're right in there in the thick of delusion, along with the deplorables.

  6. And there is still no prosecution of Hillary. You might have to wait until after the election. For a constitution-thumper you sure do not seem to understand one of the greatest freedoms. It is called entitlement to due process. I think you know what that means.

  7. As of this moment, over 24 hours after the news broke, the FBI doesn't even have a search warrant and you're convicting her already. And she should resign? I know you'll fall back on the ole Clintons get by with everything crap.

  8. Yes. The Clintons get by with everything.
