The rule of law is only for ‘we the people’ !

July 8, 2016

It was a early Sunday morning and I was driving though Fairbanks for the first time looking for an ATM. I saw a bank about a block down a side street and slowed for the turn to go to that bank. Within seconds I heard the beep of a police car siren as he pulled up behind me. The officer explained I did not come to a full stop before making the turn which had a stop sign. I tried to enplain that I never noticed the sign because I was looking for a bank with an ATM, but my words did not move him and I ended up paying the $75 ticket.

Yes you and I are bound by laws that by and large are for our own benefit, and when we disobey these laws and are caught we must pay the price. So I ask you why is it only those without any power, (political or financial), are bound by these laws. I can also hear many of you say millions of poor and middle class people are every day breaking the law when they cross our border illegally or overstaying their visa, but even this lawlessness can be traced back to those in power who tell them they will not be prosecuted.

This past week we have seen a glaring example of this abuse of power when the FBI refused to prosecute Clinton for acts that would put anyone of us regular citizens in jail. To put the icing on the cake even though the director of the GettyImages-509016860-640x482FBI James Comey said, “With lawful access to highly classified information she acted with gross negligence in removing and causing it to be removed it from its proper place of custody, and she transmitted it and caused it to be transmitted to others not authorized to have it, in patent violation of her trust,” yet they would not file any charges.

One would think at the very least they would revoke her security clearance because Director Comey said, ‘that her recklessness very likely led to communications (her own and those she corresponded with) being intercepted by foreign intelligence services’. One would also think that since secrecy is a virtual religion in Washington and those who violate its dogma have been punished in the harshest and most excessive manner – at least when they possess little political power or influence. The Obama administration has prosecuted more leakers under the 1917 Espionage Act than all prior administrations combined. The FBI has refused to comment on whether Clinton and the handful of State Department aides who transmitted classified intelligence on her private network retained their security clearances in light of the FBI investigation into their activities.

Americans across the nation reacted in anger at the FBI’s refusal to indite Clinton many stating that ‘If Hillary doesn’t obey the law why should I‘ and I have to agree with them except that if ‘we the people’ attempted to try anything close to this we would end up in federal prison for a long, long time. You may have notice I am trying to stay away from writing about current political events, this is because you can only swim against the current for so long before the stress kills you, meaning there is absolutely nothing you or I can do about it!

Hillary’s free pass is but another example
of the power
of those running this nation,
and both democrats and republicans know
they are answerable to no one.

    Yeah. What surprised me is the blatant misuse of power.

    The Clinton’s have a long history of being above the law so I wasn’t completely surprised she got off with just a slap on the wrist. Of more interest to me was Comey’s explanation; at first it sounded acceptable but if one really looked at the exact transcript it was full of holes. Once again, ‘we the people’ have been abused by those who feel, and apparently are, above the law. And this sad chapter offers even more reason for so many folks to ignore our laws…

    It was either back off or have your career destroyed (or worse) by the Clintons.
