News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Mar. 20, 2015: The question is very serious. Even if the likely reply is not.
President Obama should be more outraged than anyone.
IF he is the person he wants us to believe he is.
A man and a President of Integrity.
Before I get to the main event, I can’t resist commenting on Hillary Clinton’s PAID speech in Atlantic City today to the American Camp Association gathering. That’s right. Pay Hillary her BIG fee and she will speak anywhere. This is right from Hillary’s lips: “I think we have a fun deficit in America.” She’s doing her part by being a Bad Joke and running for President.
Want more of her nonsense. Hillary said today what America needs are: “camps for adults.” Could that be prison camps for those who defraud the American people? She is such a complete Fraud. Today Clinton also said: “If you don’t build relationships with people and all you do is show up to argue or show up to point fingers, you can’t get anything done.”
She went on: “It’s a difficult environment where you are under 24/7 scrutiny, where everybody is leaking and talking.” And finally this wisdom: “Politics in the United States can be rough,” and she learned from Nelson Mandela: “You cannot let other people imprison you – you have to always be learning and growing and changing.”
Well Hillary let’s turn to why other people “should imprison you” even if President Barack Obama and his Attorney General never will try.
It’s time to connect Obama’s America to Hillary’s personal server and another outstanding (sic) President Richard Nixon.
How does destroying 30,000 emails from a personal server on which Hillary conducted State Department business differ from Richard Nixon destroying portions of tapes of his conversations in The White House?
Answer … It does not differ at all.
So what is feckless President Obama’s response? He joked about it at the annual BS Gridiron Dinner in Washington where the Elite gather to tell jokes about themselves making fun of the rest of us for being their suckers.
Here is his Hillary server joke …. “Hillary has got a server in her house. I didn’t even know you could have one of those in your house. I am so far behind. Did you know that? I would have gotten one.”
He was much funnier when he said …., “I’m not saying I’m any funnier. I’m saying weed is now legal in D.C.” Very true Barack!
Enough Gridiron Club. Here is Obama being “serious” when asked about Hillary’s private emails on CBS News … “The policy of my administration is to encourage transparency, which is why my emails, the Blackberry I carry around, all those records are available and archived, and I’m glad that Hillary’s instructed that those emails about official business need to be disclosed.”
Actually that is also very, very funny … “I’m glad that Hillary’s instructed that those emails about official business need to be disclosed.” REALLY President Obama? Is that why she DESTROYED 30,000 emails on her personal server and she decided which ones are State Dept. business to print out and turn over to Congress.
And how about this for FOUR years Hillary used only a personal email account and she and Obama communicated by email and he did NOT question at all the fact he was emailing her at a PERSONAL email address?
Well Clueless President Obama here are some facts for you ..
It has been a long time. It is easy to forget what was at the heart of Nixon’s downfall. It is crystal clear DESTROYING evidence – also known legally as obstruction of justice – is a CRIMINAL offense.
We will never know what was on the portion of the audio tapes Nixon erased – it does not matter. So will Hillary continue to REFUSE to turn over the email server Congress has subpoenaed with 30,000 missing emails?
Will she continue to refuse to answer questions about her emails? WHY would someone DESTROY a huge amount of emails when emails are the BEST source to recount and validate FACTUAL information Hillary will need later to continue to write the history of her life confirm her day to day experiences and to validate her “many” accomplishments and to provide scholars doing research there are NO good answers to this Question?
But President Obama has nothing bad to say about Hillary, let alone that he is asking his new Attorney General to begin a probe of Hillary Clinton and her email practices while Secretary of State, nor criticize her in any way for this blatant abuse of power.
President Obama should be demanding she turn over the email server to the government not for Congress to do so alone. This is just one more unfortunate example of Obama’s lack of integrity.
Here is Professor Ronald Rotunda, Chapman University Law School, previously Professor of Law at University of Illinois, and graduate of Harvard Law School , writing in the Wall Street Journal, this week, March 16, 2015, titled “ Hilary’s Emails and the Law.” From the article …
“Whether or not Mrs. Clinton violated a State Department rule, her admitted destruction of more than 30,000 emails sure looks like obstruction of justice—a serious violation of the criminal law. Let’s consider some of the basic, undisputed facts, and then the law.
“When Congress subpoenaed Mrs. Clinton’s official communications, or when nongovernmental organizations filed Freedom of Information Act requests for the same, the State Department could not turn over her emails because it did not have them.
“By her own admission, Mrs. Clinton destroyed more than 30,000 emails once the subpoenas started coming in. She claims that she only destroyed personal records.”
Now this …
“It is a crime (18 U.S.C. section 1519) to destroy even one message to prevent it from being subpoenaed. Prosecutors charging someone with obstruction don’t even have to establish that any investigation was pending or under way when the deletion took place.”
And what do we get from President Barack Obama? A joke and silence.
Hillary should be hiring lawyers not campaign staff. And once again Obama should hang his head in shame as president of the United States.
We have a lot more than a “fun deficit” in America Hillary!
