    A preview of Hillary’s ‘rule’.

      Have we already forgotten how Comey went through so many instances that should have resulted in an indictment of Hillary and then at the end says we are not going to charge her.
      If the law does not apply equally to everyone it is no good for anyone.
      I seriously don’t think the American people realize where we are in relation to corruption, but then again I believe the thinking is provided for them as they appear not to think for themselves. The TV tells them what to think.
      We no legally allow insider trading by people in DC.
      The government can legally lie and use propaganda on the American people.
      The police are allowed to lie to citizens in the course of their duties.

      This is just the tip of the iceberg on the path we are taking and everyone seems to be fine with it…until it happens to them.

      A people deserve any regime they endure.

        We should speak up and act accordingly, If you do not think things are right, say so, don’t hide behind a stupid remark like “I don’t want to make waves”, “What I say will make no difference” and it might not, but at least we have tried, and if enough of us try, it will make a difference!

          Your comment about at least trying is one of the most powerful that can be made but many miss it’s importance.
          The only true failure is when you give up and don’t even try.
          Even if you fail, but don’t give up you can still succeed because you used that failure as a stepping stone as to know what NOT to do the second time around.
          Edison failed some 700 times before creating a light that worked, and they are still used today. He never gave up. This is what truly defines success.

          • The Clinton’s never give up either…no matter how close they come to getting caught they just keep at it. Both of them have real balls driven by Greed. Most would just quietly go off into the sunset after being impeached and then getting caught for stealing $86k worth of furniture and artifacts from the Whitehouse when they were forced to move. They made them return the items but no charges. Didn’t slow them down at all as she jumps into her Senate seat and they start the Clinton Foundation while using her pull to do political favors and collecting millions in donations in exchange. Hence the need for her own email server when she was appointed Secretary of State by Obama so she could approve sales of U.S. made Fighter Jets and weapons to Mid-Eastern Countries with outrageous human rights violations and ties with terrorism. Of course these countries donated millions generously to the Clinton Foundation prior to Hillary pushing through approvals. These countries otherwise would not have qualified. Of course Boeing and other manufacturers also donated heavily to the foundation while Hillary approved 143% more sales of weapons and fighter jets to countries than the prior secretary of state in a three year period of time. Bill Clinton also made millions from his speeches (supposedly) to the companies. Hillary wasn’t allowed other income outside of her salary from the government but that didn’t stop them. She was surprised when her email server was discovered by accident and so she just conveniently went through and deleted those correspondence so that no one knew the coincidental timing of the approvals and donations to the foundation.
            With all the investigations they have been done on the Clinton’s and their foundation which currently the FBI and IRS are involved in one would think they would stay low-key and off the radar but they are able to buy off with promises of favors or threats that they just keep flying high with their goal of back in the Whitehouse. Just think of the donations they can collect in exchange for favors from the Whitehouse. The two of them have ba!!s

      • Check on the history of the Clinton’s and Comey and you can understand why Comey did what he did. I don’t know what the Clinton’s have on him, but it must really be good.

        • Comey is as corrupt as J. Edgar Hoover and wants to be come director for life. Of course in return he will know who to please.

      • Since when did it become illegal to do insider trading in Federal Government? I know its against the law for us to do it, but they are above the law. Until they have to live under the same laws as they pass for us to live under, we are going to have problems. How many of them have health care under Obama Care? How do you think Hillary turned what, 1,000 or 10,000 into a Hundred thousand in a weeks time.

        ‘Everyone’ is quite a stretch, Common Sense. In referring to being ‘fine with the level of corruption.’ The tipping point is coming, like France. We’ve seen it with Dallas. France had millions in the streets. Anarchy and an overthrow, and hopefully back to the ‘rule of law’. As for me, I always hated cheaters, and as a Mother and Grandmother, yes, it does concern me on so many levels and areas what has happened in our country. We’ve been hit in all areas like an overwhelming scatter bomb, while the small-minded focused on whether or not we had a bi-racial man in the Whitehouse, or now running, a female criminal.
        The day I heard Obama urge America to ‘accept the official version of 9/11’ I knew he had no integrity. You can see his self esteem on his face.
        Herman: The Clintons showcase their crimes, and blackmail others for theirs. I guess it matters only if you feel guilt, or are not well-protected like the fools that protect the Clintons. Once you know too much, you are found ‘suicided’, or ‘Arkancided’.
        Comey gets to live with the fact that his peers got to see his weakness when he colluded with the Clinton career criminals. He had a chance to speak out. It may have cost him his life, knowing the Clintons, and his professional job, but the shame and public disgust will do the same to the human body. It’s better to be broke and die for something worthwhile, with your dignity intact.

        Has anyone thought out who the Democratic candidate would be if Hillary succumbs to her past medical problems? Sometimes the hand that is dealt is not controllable. Just the stress of the building hatred towards this Administration and the DNC candidate is enough to do human physical damage. The whole lot of them must know their end is near, like the French Revolution. IMO. And I don’t see any pearly gates for them on the other side.

        • What are her past med problems? I still have not seen any comments about this recent seizure she had while being videoed. That was very weird. She is in big trouble with her health.

          • Pamela Cohen | July 28, 2016 at 6:05 pm |

            Here’s one MD’s comments on Hillary’s Medical history: “Her medical history includes two deep vein thromboses (DVTs) in 1998 and 2009, as well as a cerebral venous sinus thrombosis in 2012. A thromboses is a clot; basically, the formation of a solid plug inside a vein, a misfire of the body’s ability to plug holes and stop bleeding. While I could not find news articles discussing the 2009 incident in further detail, the 1998 incident was a proximal DVT — one that had ascended into the popliteal vein — an especially dangerous form of DVT that is most likely to cause a condition called pulmonary embolus which can be fatal. A cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is also a deadly condition, with a mortality of approximately 10 percent and negative cognitive effects, though survivors make a good recovery.When anyone has multiple unprovoked clots, meaning there was no obvious reason for the body to misfire it’s clot formation system such as surgery or active cancer, and especially when someone has a clot in an unusual location such as the brain, an extensive workup is indicated to look for causes. Some such causes include previously undetected cancers, inherited or random genetic disorders, and autoimmune disorders.”

            Hillary was put on anti-coagulants, like Coumadin, which has three troubling side effects: Blood clots, gangrene and cognitive decline. They have reportedly put her on new anti-coagulants, but she has also had a series of falls. Her Vice Presidential pick who forced 6th graders in his state to get the HPV vaccine, is not likely to win against Trump, either, in the event Hillary succumbs to her health issues.

          • Hillary’s health problems are probably caused by her extreme use of cocaine….

          • Well, Ms. Pamela! Super information. What I am hearing is that Ms. Clinton should have opted out of the running for President. Thank you very much for the info…my goodness!

            We can only hope that this dangerous whench Hillary dies before the elections! Hillary is a clear and present danger the United States and it’s people! It is every Americans duty to protect the Country from such a dangerous corrupt traitor that allowed foreign agents read our most secret documents. Then the fact that she is DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DEATH OF 4 AMERICANS! She CAN NOT be allowed to become President!

          • Thank you so very much, Pamela! I just think she should hang up her political wheeling and dealing robes. She should be ordered to quit not only for her health but the health of this country. Her vice pick ORDERED KIDS to get vaccine? Kaine would love to take the hot seat. Ordering people to take vaccines not proven to be harmful…sigh.

        • I am saving this to show my hubby. Incredible insight…my goodness, Pamela. I for one am very impressed with your statements and deductions.

    This is the direction we are headed with the current corrupt justice system. The cops can lie and twist the law with impunity because the corrupt courts will parrot the same lies backing the corrupt police. We no longer have law and order, it’s a mafia that controls things and the police are all ex military who see everyone as the enemy, and are being used as the mafias muscle. Like Carlin said, it’s a big club and we ain’t in it.
    If the mafia cannot lie or trick you into compliance they will always, ALWAYS use force.
    Dominance is their goal and sooner or later we will all have to face that challenge. Bow down and capitulate or fight back. This is the point Americans run out of fence to sit on.
    There’s no middle ground here.

  4. Obviously Abby was targeted for special treatment, who benefits?

    Killary would be an absolute dictator. That wouldn’t make America great for sure.
    Trump for President and Hillary for prison 2016

    • Abby needs to be careful or she may go the way of Vince Foster.

      • Or the most recent murder of the staff member for the DNC that knew too much from being in charge of voter data base. Beaten and murdered by gunshots walking home in his upscale neighborhood but not robbed…seems pretty fishy!

    I hope she sues the SOBs.

  7. Welcome to the new AMERIKA under DICKTATER CLINTON!

  8. The fact that the police in this instance were quite willing to use physical force and brutality (wrist damage) against a White reporter shows you that police state tactics are alive and well within every force in the country and are used against everyone, not just Blacks. I would suggest that the police authorities go back to the drawing board because their systemic violence has now gone too far and is starting to produce blowback!

    I have to admit — I’d illegally detain her too 🙂 shes just too hot… might start a fire…

  10. The slime Clintons would sell the country to China and force vaccinate the populace to the death mill if you don’t.
    No more silly ‘Rule of law’ and no more constitution.
    They are the epitome of scum and HillBillary ‘what does it matter’ is kinda like ‘let them eat cake’ and we all no what happened to Marie, she got her just desserts.
    They are the best the Demoncrats have to offer, cripe.

    The ‘officer’ ripped her clothes, Billie would be envious.

  11. I believe that it Was George Carlin that referred to the American dream and said that the only people that believe in it are the ones that are asleep.
    This article reminded me of this .

  12. I used to like this guy now he is just consumed by fear of Trump …to the point of voting for Hillary what a gutless fool . Have some integrity and courage

  13. I would have crapped on the paddy wagon floor.

    My question is she going to sue the police department for being illegally detained? If that was me I would stop till the police officer was fired and charged with illegally detaining under color of authority!
