With the FBI letting Hillary Clinton slide last week in the email scandal, Obama’s overt agitation on the issue of race, and Ruth Ginsburg’s open politicking on the presidency, the US is looking more and more like a Banana Republic.
In the case of Clinton, this is hardly the first time the rule of law has not been applied evenly, but does anyone for a second believe that if she was not “Hillary Clinton, presumptive Democratic nominee” that she would not have been indicted? This is a very dangerous precedent and signals loudly that laws that apply to most do not apply to our political elites.
As far as Obama goes, his foot-in-mouth racial advocacy blew up in his face with the murders of five Dallas police. But even that could not stop him from pontificating. He is not a leader or uniter…he is simply a clueless, incompetent ideologue.
Finally there is Ginsburg, whose critique of Trump was so unprecedented that even the NYT and WAPO took to criticizing her. She has rarely hidden her far-left ideology, but by making such public statements she has proven to no longer be fit for the bench. One must wonder if she is nuts. She has done untold damage to what is supposed to be an impartial body.
Where I was once angry at such things, I now find myself deeply saddened. The country is in serious trouble with a government like this.
