"The simple proposition that everyone is equal before the law suggests that Mrs. Clinton's state of mind — whether mere knowledge of what she was doing as to mishandling classified information; or gross negligence in the case of the mishandling of information relating to national defense; or bad intent as to actual or attempted destruction of email messages; or corrupt intent as to State Department business — justifies a criminal charge of one sort or another," Michael Mukasey, former attorney general in the President George W. Bush administration, wrote in The Wall Street Journal Friday.
"[F]rom her direction that classification rules be disregarded, to the presence on her personal email server of information at the highest level of classification, to her repeated falsehoods of a sort that juries are told every day may be treated as evidence of guilty knowledge — it is nearly impossible to draw any conclusion other than that she knew enough to support a conviction at the least for mishandling classified information," he wrote.
We all know charges would have already been brought against a Republican, heck, he/she would probably already be in jail.
***An amazingly ungracious era
He plunged ahead using party line votes and procedural tricks and managed to set the template for the seven years to come: uncompromising and unproductive. Simply put, by being ungracious, Obama let his opponents off the hook. He tried to crush them but instead forged a hard and unyielding resistance. Welcome to House minority, Democrats.
Occasional triumphs, like killing Usama Bin Laden only occasionally bubbled Obama back to majority support, quickly deflated by the next partisan gambit. His grind-it-out, scorched earth election of 2012 was a fitting midway point. He became the first president re-elected with a smaller electoral vote margin than he was originally elected.
Good piece. Obama is the most unlikable president I can recall. The only reason he sits in the Oval Office is the color of his skin.

***Found this little snippet about one of my favorite authors, Charles Dickens:
Charles Dickens was probably one of the most famous writers of the Victorian era, and anything that resembles his work has now been granted the honorable title “Dickensian”. Although his stories usually have happy endings, his own story most certainly did not start happily. Dickens’ early life was spent mostly in debtor’s prison because his poor dad couldn’t pay off his debts so the whole family had to join him in the slammer, a fairly typical practice in Victorian England.
He eventually worked in a factory to help pay off the debts, and the terrible working conditions were a major inspiration to his writing. As an adult, he appeared to be a more lighthearted guy, often pulling practical jokes. He had a fake bookcase with books that were hilariously titled, including Noah’s Arkitechture and a nine-volume set titled Cat’s Lives.
With about two-thirds of Americans thinking the country is on the “wrong track,” I’d say Hillary’s attempt to run on a message of doing “even more” of what Obama has done–and selling herself as “truly revolutionary”–is about as useful as teats on a bull. Bless her little shriveled, lying progressive heart.
