The typical cliche clandestine meeting between government power brokers occurs on a secluded park bench somewhere in Washington, D.C. Usually a threat or two are exchanged along with a bit of classified information, all in hopes of saving the world one episode at a time. When former President Bill Clinton had his clandestine meeting with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch June 7th, 2016, a shady bench in a quiet park was simply not good enough. Instead, he and Lynch took the biggest jets they could find, burned enough fuel to single-handedly bring the end of the world a month early, and left a pair of 2,000 mile long jet trails hanging over America, all so they could meet on the tarmac of Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport. Once there I think they exchanged diabetic recipes clipped out of Sunset Magazine. It certainly had nothing to do with the FBI’s active investigation into presidential candidate Hilary Clinton’s illegal home-server and her mishandling of classified government documents. There could not possibly be the stink of the abuse of presidential power involving a former two term president and the current front-runner for the presidency… whom happen to be husband and wife. According to the mute Democratic senator from Oregon, Ron Wyden, that is. If the stink of abuse of power was there, by George, he would say so! But he didn’t. It was like a cat had got ahold of his tongue.
I am a socially and financially conservative man. I usually vote Republican, but occasionally cross the aisle. To my regret, I actually voted for Bill Clinton in 1992. I was never a fan of Bush Sr. I have also voted for Ron Wyden several times, and have enjoyed a good relationship with his office over the years. We share a lot of common concerns. That all came to a screeching halt when Senator Wyden questioned fired FBI Director James Comey on June 8th, 2017.
Here is my beef. With FBI Director Comey’s findings from 2016, had a lowly White House staffer done what then Secretary of State Hilary Clinton did, using an illegal home-server and illegally sharing classified documents, some of which showed up on pervert Anthony “Carlos Danger” Weiner’s laptop, Comey would have recommended an indictment. His absolution of Clinton destroyed his credibility with me. It stank of insider politics and abuse of power. Even with this get-out-of-jail-free card in hand, by the end of the campaign Hilary Clinton appeared to loath James Comey, and I bet you dollars-to-donuts, if she had won the presidency over Donald Trump, the first thing she would have done is fire his ass.
Ron Wyden is a smart fellow, and he should know this in his heart of hearts. Back in March of 2012, as Barak Obama was campaigning for president against Mitt Romney, he was caught on tape promising Russian Dmitry Medvedev “more flexibility” after the election… if he won. Where was Ron Wyden then? Where was James Comey then? Senator Wyden waited to get his game on until he could go after a political enemy. He is not angry about Comey being fired, he is angry about who got the privilege of handing out the pinkslip. He seems to hate President Trump, so he holds Trump to a different standard, a much higher standard, than he holds those within his own party.
As I watched Wyden question Comey, I suddenly lost all respect for the man. He stinks of partisanship. He is behaving like a sore loser. I believed Wyden was a senator who would cross the aisle for the benefit of America. Now he is just another opportunistic, leftwing demagogue. The more he and his ilk hound President Trump over petty, vacuous trivialities, the more I support him. I really hesitated last fall when it came time to cast my ballot, but now I am so glad I voted Trump. I am sick to death of the daily temper tantrums of left-wing progressives. Sorry Ron, but I will never vote for you again.
