Encouraging evil geniuses

I’ve noted more than once here that the rule of law is dead in America.  We have, instead, a nation that applies rules based on the status of the accused (for instance: a special prosecutor has been appointed to look into Trump’s dealings with Russia.  Where’s the one for Her Hillariness?)

The problem, it seems, is not limited to America:

An Oxford University student who stabbed her boyfriend with a bread knife may not go to jail because it could damage her prospects of a medical career, a court has heard…

Judge Ian Pringle QC, sitting at Oxford crown court, said he would take an “exceptional” course and defer sentence for four months, hinting that Woodward will not be jailed because of her talent. “It seems to me that if this was a one-off, a complete one-off, to prevent this extraordinary able young lady from not following her long-held desire to enter the profession she wishes to would be a sentence which would be too severe,” he said.

Lots of people make “one-off” mistakes with life-changing ramifications.  If Western Civilization is now accepting that one may engage in violence with impunity because one might be talented, then we’re a short hop away from barbarism.  Every evil regime you can think of had talented people in vital positions, or they wouldn’t have functioned.  Does the persuasive genius of Herr Goebbels “mitigate” the fact he helped put Germany under Hitler’s spell?  Does Charles Manson’s unusual charisma mitigate the fact he and his followers went on a killing spree?  Are we now saying that medical, computer and engineering skills are so in demand that talent in these areas amounts to a “get out of jail” card?

And they say white males have privilege…

Uncredibly efficient

You read that title right.  I didn’t mean “incredible.”  After taking a year to review the 60,000 emails Her Hillariness deigned to turn over (after selectively culling about 33,000 out — don’t try such a trick if YOU get a subpoena), the FBI only took just over a week to declare there is nothing new in the batch of 650,000 emails discovered on Anthony Weiner/Huma Abedin‘s laptop.

Well, except for showing that Hillary frequently had her maid print out emails with sensitive national security information (likely including classified emails that should never have been outside the government’s SIPRnet (Secret Internet Protocol Router Network).

So: a brief list of some of the rules that don’t apply to the would-be Empress of the American Empire:

  • Requirements to keep classified and confidential information in its proper places
  • Taking a subpoena as a mere suggestion, and not turning over everything required
  • Accepting large sums of money from foreign donors without reporting it
  • Using your “charity” to throw a wedding party

And that’s just the recent revelations.  Imagine what’s been going on during her 30 years of public “service.”

Here’s why Comey’s announcement today is “uncredible.”  There is no way he or his team have examined all the information found on that laptop.  The math:

650,000 Emails
9 Days
72,222 A Day
3000 An Hour
50 A Minute 
About 1 A Second   (H/T: Vox Day)

The one thing I’ve gotten out of all of this is a better explanation for my single encounter with Clinton and Abedin.  While I was in the service, I was part of a team that set up a visit for them to another country.  My duties put me in the room with both of them, and Abedin tried to strike up a small talk conversation with me.

Only one other time in my life have I had the same sense of every fiber of my being screaming to get out of a situation.  I could not excuse myself fast enough.  Concentrate evil enough and it becomes palpable.  As Forrest Gump would say, “that’s all I have to say about that.”

In many respects I believe America is dead, and ours is simply a zombified version (or parody) of what it was meant to be.  Nobody in Washington D.C. Mordor is even pretending to be on the up and up anymore.  If on Tuesday Hillary is placed on the throne she’s sought for so long, I think we know what final year to place on America’s tombstone.  If you think Obama was bad, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

I’ve done what I can to prepare my family for Wednesday.  Have you?  And if you aren’t praying fervently, why?
