The further I travel down this rabbit hole, the more I feel divorced from the good conservative people that I choose to call my own. I hold some stories back from our readers. My thought is that people have a hard enough time embracing the basic fact that our government is corrupt on both sides of the aisle. If you knew how corrupt I thought these people really were, I feel like you’d rush to the phone and soon bad men would show up to haul me off in a straitjacket.
Do they still do that?
Regardless, today I want to show you something that might leave you questioning everything around you.
Welcome to my world.
In 1975 a representative named Joe Bingham introduced an amendment to remove the “natural born citizen” constitutional requirement to become President.
Why is that important?
Because it was not until almost 30 years later that the issue would be addressed again. And it was not addressed only once, but multiple times. This is all part of congressional record.
Remarkably, it just so happened to coincide with the meteoric rise of a man named Barack Obama who currently sits in the People’s House.
I am about to share with you a brilliant piece of research from the Article II Political Action Committee. After reading it the foremost question on my mind is, “If the natural born citizen definition only requires one citizen parent then why did they seemingly try so hard to change the law for Barack Obama?”
The Hillary Clinton email scandal is not simply a scandal. She broke the law and she did it more than once. Will she be prosecuted for it? Judge Napolitano was asked that question and in the end, she could be but it will depend on the prosecutor.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has given us her word that she only destroyed personal emails, but she has refused to turn over her husband’s server. She brazenly wiped the server clean when it was subpoenaed.
Information on Benghazi, the Russian reset and all the other dealings she has been involved in are lost. Communications with her aides, including Huma Abedin, are lost. Possible information about donations to her charity from foreign nations is gone. Schedule information is also gone.
She has clearly broken the law and the public was told to just trust her.
Trey Gowdy is not just trusting her.
House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy delivered a letter to Hillary Clinton’s lawyers on Friday demanding Clinton hand over her email server to a third party to see what email remains on it even though she said she has wiped the server clean.
“I am formally requesting Secretary Clinton make her server available to a neutral, detached and independent third-party for immediate inspection and review,” Gowdy wrote, adding that the State Department’s Office of Inspector General could be a possible third party to examine the email.
“(S)hould Secretary Clinton continue to maintain that the server and its contents are hers alone, I will inform the Speaker of the House of Representatives so that he can use the full powers of the House to take the necessary steps to protect the best interests of the American people,” Gowdy wrote, according to The Blaze.
The full powers of the House would allow them to arrest her though that is unlikely.
Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer asked Judge Andrew Napolitano Monday morning if Hillary Clinton could be in trouble legally for her recent crimes related to the destruction of her government documents/emails. Judge Napolitano said that she’s in trouble legally if there is a prosecutor who will prosecute her.
The Judge said she broke the law several times and the same laws applied to others should be applied to her.
Hillary Clinton diverted government documents from the government to her husband’s server; she admitted to putting classified information in a non-classified venue which is the same crime as General Petraeus who had them in a drawer; and she admitted to destroying subpoenaed evidence after she was notified it was under subpoena – that’s obstruction of justice.
Hillary Clinton made these judgements instead of the State Department, the Judge said.
Judge Napolitano said this case should be presented to a Grand Jury to let them decide.
Evan Bayh, former Democratic senator from Indiana, said the voter’s won’t care. Judge Napolitano said they will care because the Clintons have acted as if they were above the law for years.
[The server will probably go on fire next and when she testifies, she won’t remember a thing.]
Watch the Judge:
Remember when it was a big deal when Richard Nixon or his secretary allegedly erased 18 1/2 minutes of Watergate Tapes? The entire Watergate scandal was blown well out of proportion but how is it Hillary can erase years of government documents?
It’s so important to the left that they are still trying to retrieve the data from the tapes. Rosemary Woods said she accidentally erased five minutes of the tape.
During the Bush years, the mere mention of Halliburton would draw a rabid, foaming at the mouth response from liberals who blamed the oil services firm for dragging the U.S. in to the Iraq war at the behest of Vice President Dick Cheney, Halliburton’s former chairman.
The Halliburton conspiracy theory was not just believed by impressionable MSNBC viewers, it was taken as gospel by well-educated professional adult liberals.
Fast forward a few years to the second term of President Barack Obama and the report of him golfing with a Halliburton director in Palm City, Florida on the second day of his weekend golf vacation draws silence from liberals.
Even with the Associated Press’ unusually forthright headline in its brief report on Obama’s Palm Sunday golf outing, Obama Golfs With Big Money, Oil Moguls in Florida, and the dropping of a helpful reminder about Halliburton’s ties to Cheney, there was not a peep of outrage from the perpetually outraged left.
“…Obama was joined for his round of golf Sunday by Jim Crane, who owns the Floridian. Crane is a major Democratic donor who also owns the Houston Astros and golfed with Obama and Tiger Woods in 2013. He’s also a major player in the Texas energy industry.
“Also in Obama’s foursome is Milton Carroll. He’s on the board of directors of Halliburton, the oil company closely associated with former Republican Vice President Dick Cheney.
“Private equity investor Glenn Hutchins rounds out the president’s group. He’s a partial owner of the Boston Celtics.”
“MILTON CARROLL, Executive Chairman of the Board of CenterPoint Energy, Inc. (a public utility holding company) since 2013 and Chairman of Health Care Service Corporation (a large health insurance company) since 2002; Non-Executive Chairman of the Board of CenterPoint Energy, Inc., 2002 to 2013; joined the Halliburton Company Board in 2006; member of the Compensation and the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committees. Current director of Western Gas Holdings, LLC, the general partner of Western Gas Partners L.P. (since 2008) and LyondellBasell Industries (since 2010). Former Chairman of Instrument Products, Inc. (a private oil-tool manufacturing company) (1977-2014) and former Director of LRE GP, LLC, the general partner of LRR Energy, L.P. (2011-2014).”
A Google search of Obama Halliburton golf within the past twenty-four hours showed no returns from liberal sites.
