No Charges For Hillary - Let the Conservative Outrage Reign Down

    Well, the FBI has recommended no criminal charges.  She was stupid and made the information vulnerable, but didn't have the intent to disperse classified.  That's the big distinction I guess.  Either way, this whole saga undermined her.

    In my opinion, she's grimy as hell.  But that said, I'd still take her over any republican candidate for two simple reasons.
    1.)  Republican economic policies cause more harm than good.  Cutting taxes for the rich simply doesn't work.  See Louisiana, Kansas, and now Wisconsin is joining the party.  Meanwhile, in California where they tax the wealthy, they turned a 26 Billion dollar deficit into a 10 Billion dollar surplus.
    2.)  Republican policies don't protect the environment.  Deregulation is the name of their game and that is the last thing we need at this turning point of protecting natural resources.  Imagine Flint, MI, but nationally.  No thanks.

      Seems to me that Director Comey wasn't too thrilled about having to let her off the hook.  He clearly laid out enough evidence to demonstrate where she could be prosecuted, but his handlers made him capitulate.  Wonder what they have on him?

      Strange, on your first point, the silence from conservatives have been deafening. Talk about a rebound, California is back and the conservative economic experiment fails dismally in more than just one state.

        To say Hillary was stupid is untrue.  Hillary is FAR from stupid.  Hillary is smart enough to use her power & her connections to be cleared of all charges regarding her office e-mails.

          You can't be cleared from charges that never see the light of day.  Just sayin'...

    *shrug* If you want another president that views themselves as above the law and not subject to it, that has made abundantly clear that they will do as they wish regardless of laws, then have at it.  Vote for Hillary - you will get exactly that if enough people don't care either.  If you want, in the highest office in the land, someone that doesn't care enough about national security to follow even simple rules to protect it, vote for Hillary.

    It won't be the first time - more than a few politicians have come out of jail only to be immediately re-elected to the job they had when convicted.  Amazing but quite true.

      Yes, cause Trump shows so much restraint.  The dude is breaking federal election rules on fundraising as we speak.

        Why is it anytime Clintons crimes are exposed we see nothing but "the other guy......"  How about telling us why you support an exposed liar?

          Because she is the lesser evil.  The other guy is an exposed liar too.  But he's also a racist con man who only cares about himself.  And his tax plan is idiotic.  Did you not read my opening remarks?

              It's not media rehash.  It's his own words.  Saying that someone can't do their job because of their heritage is about as racist as it gets.

                On June 2, 2016, Trump told the Wall Street Journal that Curiel had "an absolute conflict" in presiding over the litigation given that he is "of Mexican heritage" and a member of a Latino lawyers’ association. (When Trump said in a separate interview that Curiel "is a member of a club or society, very strongly pro-Mexican"  Trump told the journal the judge’s background was relevant because of his campaign stance against illegal immigration and his pledge to seal the southern U.S. border. "I’m building a wall. It’s an inherent conflict of interest," Trump said.

                Don't really see any racism.....just facts and political opinion

                  We will agree to disagree with how that comes off, but most Republican politicians sided with me on this one.

                  RJ, you can see through this, cant you?

                  Curiel is an American citizen, it is insulting to him and his profession for Trump to ass ume that the man is incapable of being impartial. Trump's complaint about bias is supported by gossamer. He would make the same complaint about an American judge of Muslim background. Next, he will complain about the impartiality of the judge because Obama appointed him, if he has not done that already.

    What definition of  racism  is but the most real and WHO is the racist  when  a candidate uses it to align votes and divide the people , then does nothing about REAL issues of racism  after  winning  .  Obama  and the Clintons   have used this accusatory  rhetoric to win , win , win ............and then  what have they  accomplished in positive  moves since ?

    Zip !   That's what .

      Yeah, the economy was in great shape before Obama took over.  The environment was totally being protected.  Everyone had health care.  Bin Laden was captured.  Everyone had equal marriage rights.

      Was Obama perfect.  Far from it.  He doubled the national debt.  Obamacare costs aren't working at all.  His justice department sucks at enforcing the laws already written - including immigration laws.  And he definitely always sides with the victim instead of the police.

      But to say he accomplished nothing is a grossly inaccurate statement.

        Maybe I should have said , He accomplished nothing of any real substance ,  and there is the real issue , the definition of substance .      LGBH  ,     Obama   health care , trans-genders in the military  ,Bin Laden , what a joke !   

        All but one , non  issues ! 
        So Obama gets a phone call one day saying  ,
        General ,  "We can take Bin Laden right now  , do we go ?"    |
        Obama -  What would Jimmy Carter do ?....."uh  yes ".
        Tough call huh !    That is his single biggest accomplishment  of all !
        Other than that .........I got Nothin.

          You kidding?  Bush left the economy on the verge of collapse.  What kind of idiot sends us to war and cuts taxes?  We're going to spend a bunch on that, but we don't need any revenue stream coming in. 

          Obama has the economy stable, and considering this world market, that's saying something.

          And it's not shocking that you would ignore all he has done for the environment.  Republicans and conservatives don't give a shit about that.

            I would go back to my college professor  if I were you and ask him to stop with the fairy tale  economics 101  , .   100 million people just disappear out of  the work force - must be they  were beamed up to Obama La-La  land ?  Untold millions more on food stamps and welfare ,    unemployment among  our youth  50% +  ,  Yeaaa ! Obama - the unemployment rate is  5 % , tell us more stories  please !  What- 38,000 "new " jobs last month , are you aware that it takes  150,000 to show growth ?

            Say nothing about the national  debt  being twice what it was !   That's 100 %  higher than with Bush  two wars ! Speaking of which  , How's that getting out of two wars going with the Obama promise , Obama care  -  state insurance underwriters going broke  in about one third of states so far , The VA  is in shambles like never in history ! How about  Gitmo's 40 %  of  terrorists and enemy combatants returning to the battlefield.  But hey continue to hold the wool  over each others eye's - whatever works for your  liberal Nazi mentalities !

              100 million disappear out of the work force.  Part of it's called retirement for the baby boomers.  It's what's supposed to happen.  Let that stat go, it's not exactly correct.  People who aren't looking for work or the underemployed bring the stat up to 9.7% total.

              Our youth are idiots.  I wouldn't hire them, all they know how to do is drink, drugs and video games.

              People are on food stamps because the minimum wage hasn't kept up with inflation.  And the wealth gap has grown too far apart.  People need a living wage instead of CEO's making $24 million a year.

              38,000 new jobs is better than losing jobs when a Republican is president, as is what has been the case.  So, knocking Obama for that while not looking at what the other side does isn't really all that fair.

              I'm with you on the National Debt and Gitmo, he's weak in both areas.  This spend, spend, spend policy needs to stop.

              And whoa with the Nazi insults.  Can't we discuss the differences without stooping to personal attacks?  Check your anger at the door and talk to me like an adult.

                Want to talk like adults  ,   get some reality and you'll realize that there is  no sense in your  leftist Obama-wash drivel ,that's sort of like brainwash but different ,  plant your feet on the ground and swallow a reality pill  .   Obama  , is almost .........no , .no,   he's just as  equally ineffective in leadership skills as Jimmy Carter was . You began an honorable debate  and lost ,  as many on the left do   but I'll  tell you what - here's your free cell phone for trying !

                  You arguing about winners and losers when two people have differing opinions is about as idiotic as the points you tried to make. 

                  And let's go back to the two main points of this honorable debate.  Republican economic policies suck and republican environmental policies suck.  Neither of which you ever really proved to be false.  You just tried to tear Obama down without providing a single point to support your side. 

                  In other words, you went typical Republican.  Create enough hate and division so that your own party's failings wouldn't be so obvious.

                  You are so wrong, so often, that it is hard to keep up with your nonsense.  You and your female counterpart are so lacking in credibility that many of us just roll our eyes and move on.

                  In case you care, there is no such thing as an Obamaphone.  Of course, I'm pretty sure you don't really care.  If the fact doesn't fit your story line, you ignore it or deny it.  Using falsehoods to trash the POTUS is your MO.

                  "This specific program, SafeLink, started under President George Bush, with grants from an independent company created under President Bill Clinton, which was a legacy of an act passed under President Franklin Roosevelt, which was influenced by an agreement reached between telecommunications companies and the administration of President Woodrow Wilson.

                  Wilson Phones, anyone?"

                  The money for these phones does not come from the government, in case you care about the truth.

                    No it doesn't.  But if you carefully examine your cell phone bill, and look up what each fee is for, you will find the tax that DOES pay for those free phones.

                    So YOU pay for them, the money just funnels through the federal government along with all the other taxes.
