“I saved you,” cried that woman
“And you’ve bit me even, why?
You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die”
“Oh shut up, silly woman,” said the reptile with a grin
“You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in

In yesterday’s post I talked about the bullet that was dodged by the election of Trump, how if Hillary had been elected the practices of a partisan FBI and a partisan IRS would have become a permanent feature of the American system of government.

There is however one very important truth left out of this piece, something that hasn’t been given a whole lot of press but was alluded to by Matt Margolis at PJ Media

From the earliest days of the Obama administration, the Obama/Holder/Lynch Justice Department protected political allies from justice. A slam-dunk case of voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party during the 2008 presidential election was inexplicably dropped, resulting in the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights declaring in the summer of 2010 that there was evidence of “possible unequal administration of justice” by the Justice Department. Obama also blocked a corruption probe that implicated former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for bribery. He also illegally fired an inspector general who was investigating a friend and donor of Obama’s. Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder worked in concert to protect each other. Holder would stonewall congressional investigations into Obama administration corruption and Obama would assert executive privilege to keep damaging information away from the eyes of investigators, such as crucial documents in the Fast and Furious investigation.

The Obama Justice Department also targeted Obama’s enemies. When conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza was prosecuted for making $20,000 in straw donations to a friend’s U.S. Senate campaign, many legal experts saw it as partisan selective prosecution, including liberal Harvard Law School professor and Obama supporter Alan Dershowitz. James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas, was placed on a terrorist watch list in order to limit his international travel after posting a viral video showing himself dressed like a terrorist crossing back forth over the U.S. border with Mexico to demonstrate the horrible state of our nation’s border security.

Given that Barack Obama was an inexperienced Chicago Pol who came from a Corrupt Chicago System and sponsored by an actual terrorist (Bill Ayers) the idea that such a person would weaponize government in the Chicago style is not a surprise and govern as such. Unfortunately it was also not a surprise that the media was not going to let facts proclaim the 1st Black President a failure:

he can NOT be allowed to be portrayed as a failure no matter what happens in Iraq, no matter what happens in Syria, no matter what happens in the economy and no matter how many people have given up on finding work.

Most of those things are self-evident and the media can choose to not discuss it or spin it but that can’t really be hidden from the people.

or worse a corrupt failure

But the media understands what the developments in the IRS scandal means, and they can’t investigate, because if they do then the results of their investigations might reveal what many on the right suspect, that Barack Obama & his administration is involved in this up to his ears.

If the media had held Barack Obama to the same standard they had held George W Bush he might not have been emboldened to treat Government against his enemies and those in the FBI might have thought twice before doing what they did.

Of course expecting the media to hold Barack Obama to the standard of a Bush would be like expecting Barack Obama and his Chicago cronies to behave as something other than the corrupt Chicago pols they were.

That is to expect the impossible

Update: Great minds and all that

There are a lot of opinions on the IG report this week concerning Comey and company from a lot of people more prominent than me and while I’m feeling a tad lonely and melancholy today with my son and wife at work I’m not inclined to debate the issue on twitter although I will quote the single best advice for those trying to make up their mind about it which came, surprisingly from a rather strident liberal.

This is of course why one should always do when confronted by such things but while you are reading and pondering this report and if the FBI had a hand on the scales there is a totally different consideration that should be going through your head, one that should be the first thing that comes to your mind as you read the FBI report.

If Hillary is elected all this behavior is not only rewarded but normalized in government forever.

This is not a new consideration, it’s something I’ve written about before concerning the IRS scandal

This is , in my opinion, the most important factor in the upcoming election. It’s very clear that this administration is not going to punish anyone for this and I guarantee you that if the next president is Hillary Clinton not only will nobody punished but do you really believe that given the power of the white house behind her a president Hillary Clinton will not do the same?

And it was illustrated by more than just the IRS scandal as noted here:

Carlos Henriquez didn’t pull out of his race at the time of his arrest because he understood that even with the war on woman being the theme of the 2012 election and one of the most prominent female candidates in the country running in his state,  the media, local state & national would ignore it.  He remains in his seat because he understands that even with his conviction for actually assaulting a women the media will never find his story more interesting than Mike Huckabee saying the word: “libido”

The administration appointed a political friend and donor to investigate itself on a critical scandal because they understood  that the national media would not press the issue or report on a story they had ignored for months on end.

The Senator and his office feels themselves free to attempt to pressure his state to change it’s reported numbers because they understood that the media would not press them nor nor keep a close eye on any investigation that might come.

and that’s also why The Governor & his administration felt fee to stack the investigating committee of  a prominent member of his political party because it is their understanding that while the story has broken today it will not go far and will certainly not go national.

That’s why I endorsed Trump a bit before the GOP convention because the danger to the republic in general and to conservatives in particular was astounding.

I think the breaking point is near, I think there are a lot of people in this country who are deciding that the Government is openly hostile to them.  I think that the sight of women and gay men being beaten by leftists because they support the presumptive GOP nominee, having it happen in full sight of police ordered to do nothing AND SEEING THOSE OFFICERS CHOOSING TO LET THEM BE BEATEN means that they can not count on the authorities to obey their oaths of office if they think doing so might cost them their jobs.

Even worse than this is the obvious question it raises: If leftists are willing to resort to violence and boast about it before an election when it might hurt their ability to persuade the people to vote for them, how much more willing will they be to violently suppress their political foes when such behavior is rewarded with electoral victory by the people?

What will that tell a populace that has already been arming itself nonstop for the last 4-6 years?

and why I re-endorsed him at the time of the Bush tape.

Right now a lot of people are forgetting that for good or I’ll the only thing standing between us and the financial, military, security, cultural and constitutional rights disaster that a Hillary Clinton administration would be is Donald Trump.

People are in panic and when the line is breaking someone has to pick up the flag and shout “FORWARD”. And if it costs some me some readers then so be it.

Before the election I suspected that the election of Hillary meant the end of civil liberties for the right and maybe even eventual civil war.  With the IG report this is, in my opinion no longer speculation but something that is now clearly established.

Thank God she lost.
