Hillary Clinton coronation slammed by private email scandal
Written by 

hillary-compressedWith the bombshell revelations that Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State used a private email account to conduct official business, there is a growing chorus of liberals such as Ron Fournier of the National Journal who are now questioning her inevitability as the Democratic Party nominee for President.

 

Amazingly, Clinton only used a private email account for all of her State Department business. The most serious issue is that the use of a private email account could have exposed Clinton’s correspondence to our enemies. It would have been quite easy for computer hackers to discover Clinton’s correspondence on servers that were not secure. This could have put Americans in danger and caused a serious national security problem.

Not only was her choice of a private email account potentially harmful to our nation, it was also a potential violation of law. At the very least, it was a breach of State Department protocol. In addition, the emails were not recorded in the State Department computer servers, a violation of the Federal Records Act.

Finally, two months ago, 55,000 pages of Clinton emails were added to the State Department servers, but it was only a partial record of her correspondence. The decision was not made by State Department officials, but by Hillary Clinton and her staff. It begs the question of how many emails remain hidden and why are those records not being released to the public?

One of Clinton’s potential GOP opponents, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, is blasting Clinton on the email issue. He is calling for Clinton to follow his lead and release all of her emails, thus providing full transparency to the public. Bush and others should not hold their breath waiting for Clinton to be forthcoming since she has never been forthcoming in her life in the public spotlight.

Many Americans no doubt remember the Rose Law Firm records and how they were missing for so long, only to mysteriously appear after so many months of being “lost,” what a coincidence. The Rose Law Firm investigation is just one of many Hillary Clinton scandals. Who can forget the White House Travel Office, Whitewater, “bimbo eruptions,” and the supposed “vast right wing conspiracy” to target her husband?

This email scandal is not the only new Clinton “scandal” to surface in recent days. Last week, it was discovered that the Clinton Foundation accepted donations from foreign countries during Hillary’s tenure as Secretary of State, despite assurances to the contrary. In January, we learned that Bill Clinton flew 11 times on the private jet of Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted pedophile. On one flight, a soft core porn actress joined Clinton aboard Epstein’s plane. The former President also vacationed on Epstein’s private resort, which is where sex crimes are alleged to have occurred.  Although Clinton has not been accused of having sex with underage girls, the association with a pedophile is quite the problem for his wife’s presidential aspirations.

Along with the scandals there are lingering concerns about Hillary’s health and about whether she has the stamina to handle a long and grueling presidential campaign. All of this will certainly encourage her potential opponents in the Democratic Party to stop the ongoing push for a Clinton coronation and demand that the party seriously reevaluate its plans before the next presidential nomination.   

In 2008, similar concerns about Clinton paved the way for a young outsider, Barack Obama, to snag the nomination from her grasp. In this election, her major competition will not come from Vice President Joe Biden, who is too gaffe prone to be taken seriously, but it may come from U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) or former Navy Secretary Jim Webb. One thing that is certain is that the competition will surface now that there is political blood in the water.

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.
