The tears may not be dry on the pillows of Hillary Clinton’s most ardent supporters, but now is the time to discuss one of the many reasons why Donald Trump handily defeated the former secretary of state on Election Day. The American people saw blatant evidence that a nexus of cronyism connecting powerful politicians, lobbyists, and federal bureaucrats kept a woman out of prison who clearly — clearly — should be in an orange jumpsuit.
Imagine if you will, dear reader, a case where you are entrusted with Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) intelligence. You want to run for president one day, but you don’t want reporters or congressional committees gaining access to your work through Freedom of Information Act requests and other legal means. You decide to run the nation’s top secrets through a secret email server in your home, and it somehow winds up on the laptop of Anthony “I-sext-teenagers” Weiner.
Question: Is there any doubt in your mind that you would be in shackles in a heartbeat?
Answer: Of course not, which is one of countless reasons why voters revolted against Mrs. Clinton in droves on Tuesday.
President Obama, The Department of Justice, FBI Director James Comey, and the former secreatry of state made a mockery out of the rule of law, so the American people made a mockery out of her.
Anyone who is remotely familiar with Hillary Clinton knows that she has drooled over the presidency for decades. There was an insatiable craving for power in her eyes that even the writers of Saturday Night Live could not deny. She acted as if she were entitled to job, and so the American people rightly denied her the one thing she wanted more than anything in the world. Her friends in high places may have kept her out of jail, but voters were determined to keep her out of the White House.
This all seems pretty straight forward, doesn’t it? Wrong. To political commentators like like Van Jones, what really happened last night was a “whitelash against a black president.” That may be news to the millions of white voters who voted for Mr. Obama — twice — before pulling the lever for Mr. Trump, but I digress. The point is that no level of electoral punishment is brutal enough to cause many well-known members of the media to engage in serious self-reflection.
Here is the simple truth: If the Democratic Party did not want to lose the 2016 U.S. presidential election, then it should not have nominated a woman who is the epitome of corruption. Case closed.
