Conspiracy Theorist: 5/3

Another Clinton whitewash

Mark Luedtke

When people mistakenly believe government works in the interest of the people, they are often surprised and frustrated when it doesn’t. They attribute government’s failures to incompetence instead of reevaluating their viewpoint. Fox News Contributor Judge Andrew Napolitano is going through that right now trying to understand why Hillary Clinton hasn’t been arrested for illegally using a private email server for classified communications.

In several articles the former judge lays out the case against Clinton. Here’s the most damning evidence: “Among the data that the FBI either found on the Clinton server or acquired from the State Department via its responses to Freedom of Information Act requests is a top-secret email that has been denominated Special Access Program. Top secret is the highest category of state secrets (the other categories are confidential and secret), and of the sub-parts of top secret, SAP is the most sensitive.”

Clinton’s defense, an insult to all Americans, claims the emails weren’t labeled classified at the time so she was simply negligent in putting highly classified information on her unauthorized server. Napolitano destroys this argument. “Clinton signed an oath under penalty of perjury on Jan. 22, 2009, her first full day as secretary of state. In that oath, she acknowledged that she had received a full FBI briefing on the lawfully required care and keeping of state secrets. Her briefing and her oath specified that the obligation to safeguard state secrets is absolute—it cannot be avoided or evaded by forgetfulness or any other form of negligence, and that negligence can bring prosecution.”

As far as Napolitano is concerned, this is an open-and-shut case. Clinton will be arrested, prosecuted and found guilty.

While the first sentence is true, the second is not, and Napolitano is borderline apoplectic about it. The first paragraph of the same article shows where he goes wrong. “Hillary Clinton’s nightmare is not the sudden resurgence of Bernie Sanders,” he wrote. “It is the fidelity to the rule of law of the FBI.”

I got a big belly laugh when I read that. Anybody who pays attention knows the FBI has no fidelity to the rule of law. The FBI routinely conducts illegal surveillance of Americans. It hacks computers without legal authority. FBI spying didn’t end with J. Edgar Hoover; it only began with him. The FBI has a long history of systemic corruption, especially its vaunted crime lab.

What Napolitano, despite the overwhelming evidence of his eyes, doesn’t understand is every government bureaucracy, especially police agencies like the FBI, are political tools for rulers. They benefit the most powerful rulers and oppress opposition, critics and the people.

President Obama and his cohorts have made it clear they won’t prosecute Clinton. The White House spokesman said so. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said so.

The fix is in. Former CIA Agent Philip Giraldi explains how it works, “Obama is, of course, lying when he says that he will allow an investigation to proceed unimpeded. The attorney general and FBI director work for him, and he is keenly aware of what is going on. He doesn’t have to say anything at all for Loretta Lynch to understand that it might be in the administration’s interest to slow down or kill the process. As Obama has one major legacy issue in the waning days of his presidency (to make sure that the Democratic Party holds on to the White House), to torpedo Hillary Clinton through prosecution over mishandling classified information would be unthinkable for him and the people around him. He does not have to send a signed presidential memo or have an off-the-record conversation to make sure that his associates appreciate that point.” Once Napolitano accepts this, his blood pressure will drop.

Napolitano isn’t alone in his failure to grasp the obvious. While he’s become more libertarian over the years, he’s been unable to completely overcome the brainwashing he received in government schools. Unfortunately, nearly every American has been equally thoroughly brainwashed to believe government is beneficial, and few have overcome that brainwashing to the extent of Napolitano.

Finally, the FBI doesn’t want to prosecute Clinton either. Having read her emails, it owns her. The FBI, part of the deep state Hoover started, controls her. She’s a valuable asset, especially as president. The FBI director won’t give up that power by ruining her.

Both Clintons are career criminals and should be spending life in prison, but in upside-down world, injustice rules.
