Opinion by George McClellan:
It’s all over but the shouting. Trump has achieved the required 1237 delegates vote count and will be the GOP candidate for president. There will be no brokered convention, no behind the scene machinations to bring in Jeb Bush or Mitt Romney, no nothing! Oh my!
The GOP Establishment is opposed to Donald Trump. He’s a threat to their corrupt life style and now, they’ve run out of options. Either they embrace the candidate or they flock to Hillary only because they believe if in office, she will continue the big government depredations against the American people. Because Hillary is a part of the establishment nothing will change, they hope!
At this point, I believe the Democrat party is in deep turmoil. Clearly, because Obama has allowed the release of the State Depts. negative IG report on Hillary’s mishandling of classified documents, that constitutes tacit approval for her removal. I believe the next shoe to fall on Hillary’s head will be the FBI Investigation on her criminality. That will also expand to include her Clinton Crime Foundation schemes now under investigation for possible RICO violations. Oh my!
The vast wealth the Clinton’s have amassed while she was Secretary of State and since, from the Middle-East OPEC nations, Wall Street Financial Institutions and other sources seeking political favors when she would become president, are now additional objects of criminal inquiry that will adversely affect her candidacy as the anointed Democrat standard bearer.
Shakespeare said right: “Oh what tangled webs we weave when at first we practice to deceive.”
Hillary is now entangled in a web of her own lies: The State Dept., she said, allowed her to use her own private server. A lie! They didn’t. As a matter of fact, she was the State Dept. and they must operate on rules previously made that cannot be ignored, except by the Clinton’s of course. She knew the rules and continued to ignore them. After her server was hacked she was told to use the State Department server. She refused not wanting facts to surface that her efforts were solely to enrich the coffers of the Clinton Foundation, not to do her job as Secretary of State, a position she used as a vehicle only to enhance and enrich her Foundation.
As expected, Hillary blames the State Department for sloppy record-keeping, for not preserving her real time records. On CNN, her spokesman, Brian Fallon, said “the State Department’s system was in such disarray it thwarted Clinton’s effort to meet the standards under law for filing and saving her records.” What? The IG report simply said “she did not comply with the department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act.” So, there we have it! What are the democrats to do?
Will Hillary bow out peacefully for the good of her party? Don’t count on it. Will the DNC National Chairman, Debbie Wassermann Schultz, put a word in her ear about saving the party? Don’t count on it! Will Bernie seize the initiative? He’ll certainly try! We can already hear the chairs falling over as democrats rush too repair the damage of having a criminal pre-selected as their presidential candidate. Oh my!
Look for poor ol’ uncle Joe Biden to come to the rescue. It will be his swan song, his last great act of public service, to throw himself on the flaming pyre of democrat dreams to rescue the drowning party from its inevitable fate – extinction. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (26 May 2016)
