In this episode, I discuss the Hillary Clinton email server saga.
Meat & Potatoes
George Washington said in his farewell address:
“It is important, likewise, that the habits of thinking in a free Country should inspire caution in those entrusted with its administration, to confine themselves within their respective Constitutional spheres; avoiding in the exercise of the Powers of one department to encroach upon another. The spirit of encroachment tends to consolidate the powers of all the departments in one, and thus to create whatever the form of government, a real despotism. A just estimate of that love of power, and proneness to abuse it, which predominates in the human heart is sufficient to satisfy us of the truth of this position.”
Why Hillary Clinton decided that she’s above the law and built her own personal email server is beyond me. Besides the fact that the IT guy who’s supposed to set up their emails failed miserably, how is it in all the time Clinton was Secretary of State did not one person call her out for her email address? More importantly is to what extent were classified documents put at risk because her personal email server was not encrypted properly. Bottom line, what was she thinking? Then again, let’s all remember who we’re dealing with: a Clinton!
There’s another story that’s really got me pretty upset. You may have seen the picture of the Navy veteran holding the flag with their beautiful little baby in it. Well, the photographer happened to be a veteran herself. She posted the picture to her FB page and the attacks rolled in. People were upset that she would do that to the flag. Personally, I find the picture very patriotic and symbolic of all the freedoms and liberties that child will get to partake of because of the things that flag stands for.
Who Said That?
Guess what? Ferguson, MO brings out the stupid in people! Two cops were pretty much ambushed at a demonstration and wound up getting hit with gunfire. Thankfully, they survived. Yet, people like Eric Holder, who’ve spent the last 9 months stoking the fire came out and said that this was done by a ‘punk’ and that this harms the healing progress. Excuse me! You’ll just have to hear it for yourself.
