Obama should denounce Loretta Lynch-Bill Clinton Phoenix tarmac powwow, at the minimum

Say what?

Former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch had an unexpected powwow at the Phoenix airport, on Monday.

According to various news reports, the husband of the presumptive Democratic nominee for President, Hillary R. Clinton, who happens to be under a cloud of indictment, had an impromptu private chat with the person who ultimately decides whether to prosecute Bill’s wife.

Please, tell me it ain’t so.

And, wait.  From reports, they talked about grandchildren, travels and who knows, maybe the weather.   They didn’t once bring up the indictment controversy.

There is one word that describe this meeting:

OMG!!

Even if the FBI criminal investigation did not come up, Lynch should have put the brakes on the informal airport chat.

After all, we’re talking about the appearance of impropriety here involving an already-impeached President of the United States, who looked us in the eyes once before and said, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky”.

What’s next, “I did not talk Hillary emails with that attorney general, Loretta Lynch”!

Pleeze…

It doesn’t matter. It was done. 

In all seriousness, I am not saying that anything improper actually happened, for honestly, I have no real clue.

And, I know that Lynch is saying the matter is being handled by career law enforcement agents.  Also, I can’t believe the FBI, assuming it finds reason to prosecute, won’t go public with outrage, should Lynch decide not to follow the agency’s recommendations.

Nonetheless, it was stupid, imbecilic, outrageous and pathetic that the former president and the current head of our federal legal system, could not see that simply waving at one another at the airport--and then, moving on, would have been many times more kosher.

We can expect the also-pathetic Donald Trump will scream bloody murder, call Hillary even more crooked and who knows, even include the Attorney General and the FBI as his next campaign target.

Let us not forget, it was just as stupid, imbecilic, outrageous and pathetic for Donald Trump to have personally called the attorney general handling the Corey Lewandowsky case.  As we now know, Trump has a history of making contacts with Attorney Generals preceding the dropping of charges.  Look no further than the Trump University scandal.  The difference is, we do know that Trump discussed the case with the Florida attorney general.  We don’t know what occurred on the Phoenix tarmac.

It is time for President Obama to step in.  At the minimum, he should denounce the Attorney General in public.  At the very most, he should demand her resignation.

The worst thing that could happen to this country is for Donald Trump to be President of the United States.

The next worst thing would be the citizens of this great country to lose even more faith in its critical institutions of government.

It is time for Obama to act before thhis dumb mistake, takes flight.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
