Nothing offends people more than unequal justice -- disparate treatment of protected persons and classes. This week, the FBI and Department of Justice’s hash of equal justice became even clearer and the media’s fat thumb on the scales as well.
If you read nothing else this week, read this essay by Lord Conrad Black in the New York Sun, who links the Special Counsel fiasco and the Jussie Smollett hoax and concludes that we just avoided the “biggest constitutional crisis since the Civil War”:
The authors, accomplices, and dupes of this attempted overthrow of constitutional government are now well along in reciting their misconduct without embarrassment or remorse because -- in fired FBI Director James Comey’s formulation -- a “higher duty” than the oath they swore to uphold the Constitution compelled them. Or -- in fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s words -- “the threat” was too great. Never mind that the nature of “the threat” was that the people might elect someone he and Mr. Comey disapproved of as president, and that that person might actually serve his term, as elected.
The extent of the criminal misconduct of the former law enforcement and intelligence chiefs is now notorious, but to make the right point here, it has to be summarized. The fact that the officially preferred candidate lied to federal officials about her emails and acted in outright contempt of Congress and the legal process in the destruction of evidence, was simply ignored by the FBI director, who announced that she would not be prosecuted, though he had no authority to make that determination....
He asserts, and I agree, that the defamation campaign against the president continues with the now-debunked tale of racism by the Covington students and the thoroughly debunked tale of assault on Jussie Smollett.

Clarice 'gets it'...
It’s the Season of the Hoax, and the great hoax is about to burst. Collusion. If it were a racehorse it would be hyped as Secretariat, and on Derby Day they’d have to roll it out of the gate like a park statue.
A proper DOJ would be appreciated. Some prosecutions might actually rid the nation of this pestilence.
The hoax has been about to burst for two years now, call me when a seam pops.
Conrad Blacks column was concise and right on the money. Clarices column simply confirms what he said with her usual common sense and brilliance.
Black’s contention that “Those responsible will pay for this, including at the polls;”
“America has survived the greatest constitutional crisis since the Civil War,”
make for rosy, comforting windup to his summary of the situation, but they have a pre-WWI motif.
Civility — it’s as dead as chivalry. We’re not resolving any of this at the polls. We had a poll on November 8, 2016. And as for surviving this crisis, it’s hardly over, this is just the end of the beginning.
Nadler's denunciation of the President
and other recent grumblings from the rats, strongly suggest they already know what Mueller will be bringing forth. Sounds to me like the bodice ripping has begun.
Thanks for the ping, Clarice nails it.
Are non-hate crimes love-crimes?
Except that the coup happened on Usurpation Day, January 20, 2009.
All of the subsequent crimes lead back there.
You're right ..
Yes she does. And I agree 100%. Every crime is a hate crime.
Thank you jaz.
