Remember how we got into this ObamaCare mess?

July 19, 2017

It was DOJ action that changed the course of our nation in 2008 — giving us, for example, ObamaCare.

Flashback to 2008 … you know, the year that Barack Obama was elected.

Well, the DOJ didn’t indict Sen. John McCain for anything … nor did it overtly pave the way for Obama’s election.

But  the DOJ did tilt the legislative scales in a defining way.

Who did they indict?

The DOJ indicted Alaska’s Ted Stevens, the longest-serving Republican Senator in U.S. history. He was indicted during his 2008 re-election campaign.

What were the charges, what were the implications, and how was the case ultimately resolved?

Stop saying that Comey’s action is unprecedented …

October 31, 2016

There was an election season DOJ action that’s partially responsible for the mess we have now.

My conclusion in July was that Comey ruled illogically because he didn’t want to be responsible for  tilting a potentially historic election.

But, WikiLeaks revelations and an internal agents’ revolt left him no choice but to re-open the case. It was becoming clearer by the day that he (not the FBI agents!) blotched the case.

Now,  left-leaners are crying “foul” … asserting that the DOJ shouldn’t get involved in cases involving high profile candidates in the run-up to an election … especially if the charges are as “trivial” as carelessly handling  our nation’s top secret information.

Say, what?

Here’s a historical precedent that Comey might have considered…

My conclusion is that Comey ruled illogically because he didn’t want to be responsible for  tilting a potentially historic election.

For months, many left-leaners were crying “foul” … asserting that the DOJ shouldn’t get involved in cases involving high profile candidates in election years … especially if the charges are as “trivial” as carelessly handling  our nation’s top secret information.
