Justice or Something Else

Tevya is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, April 4, 2016. Our dear friend, Wasp Tevya, is at the breakfast table with me this morning. Tevya has been following this slow and painful investigation into Hillary Clinton and her disregard for national security. Tevya would like to share some of her thoughts with all of us. Won't you join us for potato pancakes and applesauce accompanied by Irish Coffee. We hope to see you soon.

Friends in High Places

Thank you so much for joining me this morning. I am worried bout Attorney General Loretta Lynch and her ability and desire to pursue charges against Hillary Clinton. Lynch was a litigation partner for eight years at a firm in Washington that served the needs of the Clintons. Uh-Oh! There is definitely trouble in paradise. The firm that Lynch was a part of, Hogan & Watson, filed a patent trademark for the company that created the email encryption system that was used in Clinton's private server. Uh-Oh! It would seem correct for Lynch to call for a special counsel to deal with Clinton's case, because she was and is, literally too close to the Clintons for comfort.

No Security

Although Clinton has stated over and over again that she never sent classified material on her private server, that doesn't seem to be the case at all. The firm that developed the software gave unrestricted access to anyone wishing to read the emails. Anyone at the company could have read and sent these emails to anyone, anywhere. Does that sound safe to you? There is no way in the world that Clinton was unaware of the danger of her actions. Her staff knew it, as well, and the bottom line is that they all thought the rules didn't apply to them.

Justice?

Breakfastpop's father was an attorney. He was brilliant, respected, moral and truthful. One morning, her Dad was sitting alone in a room talking into a tape recorder. He sounded sad, thoughtful and filled with regret about a justice system so flawed that justice was truly elusive. He spoke softly and reflected about the state of the legal system in the nation. His pronouncement was that there truly was no such thing as justice, rather it all depended upon who you knew. His words were uttered more than 50 years ago, and they still hold true to this day. Hillary Clinton knows many people in high places who want to protect her at all costs. This case has dragged on for far too long. She is running for president and she, the Democratic Party and her supporters do not seem the least bit concerned about her behavior. In a perfect world, this case would have been decided already. In a perfect world, she would be packing a small bag and heading to jail. In a perfect world, Lynch would recuse herself and this case would be decided by independent counsel. In this world, Clinton may get a pass no matter what the FBI finds.

Stalling

Despite the fact that the FBI is digging away at these emails, Clinton may never have to pay for her wanton recklessness. If the Justice Department drags their feet, she may just walk her way into the White House, and the voters will never see the conviction at the end of the tunnel. Clinton chooses her words very carefully when asked about this scandal. She is innocent. She may have been foolish, but she never compromised the security of our nation. Her demeanor speaks volumes. She doesn't expect a damn thing to come of all these months of investigation. Any normal person would be very worried about their future, but Clinton is different. She and her husband have a way of walking away from trouble. They have come to expect that, and thus far they are doing just that. If Clinton walks away because Lynch is stalling, this nation will have much to be ashamed of. Justice will definitely be seen as a concept to be reserved for a precious few. The rest of us will have to deal with a system that picks and chooses who pays and who doesn't. Let's hope against hope that justice prevails. What's the harm in that?

Good Morning pop. Most of us knew from the start of this all that absolutely nothing would happen to Hillary Clinton BECAUSE she's Hillary Clinton. Most of us have faced the horrific truth even though it pains us and jeopardizes our Nation to have thugs & criminals in charge.....it's so bad, so wrong, so frightening & such a travesty....yet if you're brave enough to face the ugly reality, Hillary is scott free.

Happy Monday Patti - I can almost assure you Hillary will never pay the price for what she has done, and that is because she is a Clinton.

The Clinton's have never had to pay for any of their crimes due to the Washington system and their many connections. The Washington establishment is well protected by the fact that they have information that could put many Politicians in prison. It is like a secret society sworn not to rat on one another.

The only way I can see them getting to Hillary on this one is to threaten her assistants, and offer them immunity for their testimony. Loretta Lynch was selected because she is just a female Eric Holder. The DOJ doesn't apply the same justice to the Washington elite as they do to outsiders.

Good Morning fp,

I could spit nails! The notion of the Clintons getting way with murder is absolutely maddening. I guess being a consummate liar is considered a good thing. See you at the Inn. Let's discuss buying a private island!

Good Morning Mike,

I know you are right, but the thought of her walking is driving me nuts. The Clintons must be the ones with pictures! See you at the Inn. A private island for all of us might be the answer.

Pop and Tevya,

No charges for obstruction for hiding the Rose Law Firm records in The White House in the 1990's and this will likely turn out the same. The Clintons and modern Democrats have never seen a conflict of interest they wouldn't embrace.

There is no doubt Clinton is not being honest. The rich and famous and powerful rarely have to answer for their transgressions, especially in D.C.

Keep ringing the bell, my friend.

Money, power and a personal evil agenda are what keep Hillary and Obama from prosecution because those are the driving force of corruption. What is more deeply disturbing is the unwavering support the masses continue to give them. I've never doubted Hillary will be the next president. I hope I'm wrong. Desperately wrong.

Dear Tom,

The Clintons both need to do time for all their transgressions. If she gets away with yet another scandal, every American should be personally insulted. I'll be at the Inn discussing the possibility of buying a private island for the poppers.

Dear lamb servant,

I desperately hope you are wrong. The thought of this woman in the WH makes me shiver. See you at the Inn.

It would be nice to see a special prosecutor and have Hillary indicted a week before the election. Such a happy thought! Oh, it was a dream. Darn. Voters are too stupid to think negative thoughts about Hillary Rodman Clinton. (I didn't know she is related to Dennis Rodman!)

OK....HUMOR BREAK: I wasn't going to tell this, but I think I need to.

Last week I had an arteriorgram....ambulatory vascular procedure. No general anesthesia but instead, a good dose of the "stuff that makes you goofy" (OK, in my case, goofier) Wheeled in & 2 staff of either side, grab hold of the sheet under you and 1-2-3 hoist you onto the table.

I was high as a kite. One of the nurses, trying to lighten my fears, asks me, "So Paula, who are you voting for?" All 4 dropped me back onto the gurney as they broke up laughing hysterically....(so I was told later!)....Apparently I said, " Sponge Bob Square Pants."

I would have laughed too, but it hurt too much. Can't believe I said that. (I guess it's good damned thing I don't drink & have never done drugs!) In my defense, I do watch a lot of cartoons with my grandkids. But honestly, I would peg Sponge Bob as a Liberal!

Oh.....I'll live to vote again I'm sure.....providing I even vote THIS time. I'm beginning to ponder deeply!

(You have no idea how much I hope your last statement occurs....but don't you seriously doubt it, pop?)

You know how great that would serve as a warning & example for all the other corrupt bastards?

And Justice For All

The government is not part of Ya All. Many of the laws they pass, are exempt for them.

Government investigations are usually to protect someone, rather than give justice. Justice and the Government are like Oil and Water except you can't shake the government.

In actuality All presidential candidates need to be vetted as if they were applying for a Top Secret or better government clearance.

They are barely asked to give their photo id and birth certificate.

I say reel her in or cut her loose, but stop this ridiculous distraction of an investigation that can't after four years can't be closed one way or another.

Dear fp,

I just read that f Hillary doesn't get indicted the head of the FBI and others will walk! If she gets away with this there are going to be serious repercussions.


breakfastpop profile image

breakfastpop 5 months ago Author

Dear brad,

There is plenty of evidence to indict her. Sadly, the Justice Department may not be inclined to do so. If candidates were vetted, as they should be, Hillary would be doing time. I also think that if they had to provide evidence that they were in good health, Hillary would fail. There are lots of rumors afoot that say that she has had several mini-strokes on the campaign trail. Her staffers have reported that she is often confused. Anyway you slice it, she is unfit to serve. See you at the Inn.

This is like an episode of West Wing where the democrat presidential candidate had a serious medical condition that could seriously impair his thinking, among other things. He even won reelection????

She should at least be charged with obstruction of justice (haha)

for deleting over 30,000 emails that she claims were personal. Now the FBI has to forensically undelete them. Isn't that like flushing stuff down the toilet.

At the inn, holding a jelly donut, and bear claw in a mock trial. We all know that the Jelly donut is guilty.

fpherj48 profile image

fpherj48 5 months ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

Her staff reports "she's confused at times?" HA! They're just preparing that as part of her defense for lying so much....she's not really lying, she simply confuses fantasy for facts.

Oh pop...Seriously, Loretta Lynch is expected to be honest? We have to be viewed as the stupidest, dumbest, blindest humans on earth. If they don't think this, then it must be we're nothing but cowards (just like Congress) who will sit by and just LET it all happen. One way or another, I see little hope that we're anything but "screwed."

Good Morning Mike,

I don't think Obama gives a damn about anything but Obama. In fact, he would feel thrilled if the FBI resigned and all of Congress. I hate to admit it, but I wouldn't mind seeing Congress take a hike for good. See you at the Inn. I'm bringing donuts and plans for our private island.

Good Morning fp,

I think the elite count on people like us to swallow whatever bull they come up with. That's why the Donald appeals to so many people. The elites hate him just as much as they hate voters who get in their way. I believe this election process is a massive hoax meant to appease the lowly electorate. See you at the Inn. That private island is starting to make me salivate.


Old Poolman profile image

Old Poolman 5 months ago from Rural Arizona

Patti - I am in total agreement. I now believe our election process is so corrupt that our votes really don't count. It seems we have reached the point where the candidate with the most money and elite connections wins the election. This goes all the way down to State and Local elections.

The process has now become so complex and confusing that very few understand how it really works, and that includes me. They are allowed to change the rules anytime things are not going as planned to eliminate one or more of the candidates. Can you even imagine how sports fans and the book makers would feel if their team lost a game because of a rule change while the game was in progress?

The dead and the illegals still vote, and probably always will. California passed a law that anyone with a drivers license can vote, and illegals are now allowed to get a drivers license in California. This move was all about votes, not civil rights.

Most of us are now aware that these elections are rigged from start to finish. The millions spent on negative advertising could be put to much better use if it became public knowledge on what candidate the elite had picked to win.

It would also be nice if there was a probationary period of say two years for newly elected Presidents. If they had not accomplished at least a few of the things they promised by the end of two years they would have to leave office and the VP would finish out their term.

Voter ID should be mandatory and something better than a California Drivers License.

I'm not sure that even if we could change to a simple popular vote that it would be run honestly and we the people would get the person we picked to serve. My faith in our election process has reached a minus factor.

I grew up in NYC, LI, and then moved to S Cal and I didn't care about politics when I was growing up. But, I do remember that to get a job in the Township you had to be a democrat. It didn't mean anything to me then.

The bottom line is that I wound up in two of the biggest democrat controlled areas in the country. Now, that I understand politics better, the political control of these two states really bothers me.

Had I not gone to college and strived for better white collar jobs, I might be oblivious to politics even today.

Justice is like pornography, you can't define it but you know it when you see it. Unfortunately, you can see pornography more often than the rare glimpses of Justice.

I looked up the definition of the word Justice, and it was all circular and it was subjective. It defined Justice using the word Just???

BTW, I always wondered why Nathans stopped selling the Coney Island Knish. In Manhattan, I would have two of them from a pushcart for lunch when I was in grade school.

I have to send to Brooklyn now to get them to California. In times like these comfort food helps.

Finally, The phrase "And Justice For All" is as meaningful as the phrase, "All Men Are Created Equal".

Men doesn't mean mankind, and it doesn't include women. And we know that there is no Equality in Creation.

Perhaps, I have once again stretched my comment beyond the bounds of the scope of the hub.

Good morning, Pop and Tevya...

Your father was a wise and honorable man...I wonder what his comments would be in this "Justice delayed is Justice denied" drama being played out by the FBI's foot-dragging and the DOJ's lack of concern or interest..?

The destruction of possibly incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State and the "pay to play" schemes of the Clinton Foundation - we have no idea what shoe will fall next.... But to her loyal fans - "what difference does it make?"

Electing this evil Succubus president would be like granting Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven...I'm hoping her next pantsuit will be the color Orange...

Dear Mike,

I don't trust this system at all. The Republican bosses are openly stating that they will do anything to get rid of Trump and all the people who voted for him. The whole process is embarrassingly flawed and dishonest. I never fully trusted the system, but never in my life have I felt so negative toward the whole thing. I could see us reaching a point in this country where only a few people vote at all, and if they do it will be for old time sake. The notion that we have representation in Washington is bogus! I am heading to the Inn soon. I hope you'll join me.

Dear brad,

Stretch all you want. All your comments, memories and observations are always appreciated. There used to be a great place in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn that sold the best knishes in the world. It was called Mrs. Stall's Knishes. I have to check and see if it is still around. I am sure the name would be in Russian now, but the knishes just might be delicious. As for Justice, well it is a great notion, but it rarely comes to pass. See you at the Inn. I wish I could bring some knishes from Brooklyn. Maybe another time.

I was very moved by your "Justice?" paragraph. Your dad sounds like a wonderful and wise man. The character, Atticus Finch, came to mind.

As for Hillary, time will tell. So far, she has gotten off the hook for every single crime she has committed....and yet, she has supporters. It's an awful state we're in.
