What if there was true ‘justice-for-all’ in America? From the little guy to the most powerful. Impossible? I realize we can’t have perfect justice, after all, we’re only human. But, generally speaking, what if we could count on an overall, evenhanded justice? Sound ridiculous? Sound like ‘Fantasy Island’ justice? Well, in my little fantasy of justice for all, it would very likely turn-out that Bill Clinton, Barak Obama, and Hillary Clinton would each be facing serious judicial scrutiny, or possibly, even jail time. This fantasy would also include Huma Abedin and possibly even Chelsea Clinton. It would also include each one of their many aides and accomplices as well.
[You shall do no injustice in judgement; you shall not be partial to the poor nor defer to the great, but you shall judge your neighbor fairly. (Leviticus 19:15)]
Would such a scenario be too much for “the people” to handle? Should “the people” be shielded from the crimes committed by the most powerful, even their president? Or, would such a scenario do too much damage to the integrity of the United States of America? This certainly seems to be the prevailing attitude among some elitists, statists, politicians, lawmakers, judges and lawyers. But, in my view, “the people” can handle it just fine, because, in the end, justice upholds integrity. Injustice shatters integrity and trustworthiness.
If indicted and prosecuted, Hillary Clinton could possibly be facing real time in the federal pokey. If there was justice for all, it would likely turn-out that losing the presidency would only be the first domino to fall for Hillary. Her use of an illegal, non-government email server to conduct official State Department business (including classified documents) is against State Department policy and also against federal law, i.e., the Federal Records Act (Federal Records Act. 44 U.S.C. §§ 2101-18, 2901-09, 3101-07, and 3301-14). To date, there are reportedly over 400 legal violations by Hillary Clinton and her team for breaking FOIA laws! In a just-world that should mean prosecution and real-life consequences for Hillary. It certainly has for other citizens in lesser situations, so why not for Hillary Clinton?
But, that is not all for Hillary. Part 2 of her legal woes could also include the real possibility of an ‘international money laundering scheme’ with her husband, former president Bill Clinton. Also for their colleague Doug Band, their daughter Chelsea, and Hillary’s top aide, Huma Abedin. Huma Abedin as Hillary’s personal aide, was employed with the State Department while also being employed by the Clinton Foundation! Abedin reportedly acted as a liaison between Hillary as Secretary of State and with Clinton Foundation top executive, Doug Band. I’m not sure of the legal issues with this inappropriate arrangement, but it sure looks like a huge conflict of interest, to say the least.
The Clinton Foundation reportedly takes in millions (possibly billions) of dollars in donations from some very wealthy people, from all over the world. Sounds fine, except, Hillary reportedly used her position as Secretary of State to coerce donations to Bill and Hillary’s foundation. Apparently, when a notable person or foreign dignitary wanted to have personal contact with Hillary as Secretary of State, Hillary’s aide, Huma Abedin would direct that person to first go through the Clinton Foundation. In order to get a personal appointment with Hillary, that person would first have to make a sizable ‘donation’ to the Clinton Foundation. After making a sizable donation to the Clinton Foundation or the Clinton Global Initiative, the ‘donor’ could then get special expedited access to Hillary as Secretary of State.
One Clinton Foundation donor, Rajiv Fernando who gave $1 million dollars, even received an appointment in 2011 to the International Security Advisor Board (ISAB), which provides the Secretary of State with intel on national security. It turned out he had absolutely no relevant experience whatsoever. This was in 2011, under the Obama Administration and after some probing and questioning by insiders and news organizations, Fernando withdrew from the appointment.
And that’s just for starters, there is apparently much more to the Clinton’s sordid ‘money laundering scheme’ that is yet to be revealed by investigators. Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin and Doug Band appear to be the main co-conspirators in this international money laundering scheme, but, the Clinton’s daughter Chelsea, who also works for the foundation, may be culpable as well. So, if former president Bill Clinton is discovered to be guilty of being involved in a major ‘international money laundering scheme’ what would be the outcome – would there be proper justice for his crimes? Would there be prosecution, fines, or maybe even time in the federal pokey for the former president?
The Clinton’s have always had some kind of shady deal going on. Remember the 1996 ‘China-gate’ scandal? This was another fundraising scheme by Bill and Hillary Clinton to sell seats on taxpayer-financed trade mission trips, in exchange for political contributions. Fortunately, that scheme was uncovered and stopped. Much of the Clinton’s more recent ‘shady dealings’ were only uncovered via Hillary’s ‘email scandal’ that many Democrats passed-off as no big deal (including Bernie Sanders).
If Hillary Clinton had won the presidency, she would most likely have been shielded from any kind of investigation into her illegal email fiasco and the international money laundering ‘scam’ with the Clinton Foundation. But, since she has lost the election it looks like the first domino has fallen for Hillary. In spite of James Comey’s attempts at shielding Hillary from future indictment or prosecution, her further illegal activities may continue to haunt her and reveal more corruption. If the next domino falls, that could also lead to some real legal problems for former president Barak Obama as well. Remember, Hillary is being protected by certain government officials in all this because Barak Obama was well aware of Hillary’s illegal activities and knowingly participated in illegal email exchanges with her (along with other cover-ups). We know this because it was discovered that Obama was using an alias in email exchanges with Hillary, and when that ‘alias’ was revealed, Obama refused to release the records of their exchanges.
The Obama administration’s fraud, misconduct and misrepresentation on the Hillary Clinton email scandal (and other scandals) continues in federal court. Behind the scenes Obama and his lawyers work doggedly to stall and suppress FOIA transparency laws. Hillary and Obama both have a personal interest in keeping their records away from the American people – even at the risk of violating the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Obama’s interest in conspiring with Hillary is to avoid accountability and justice, because If Hillary goes down, she would likely point the finger at Obama for his involvement as well. The longer Obama and Hillary can stall the courts, the more likely it is that the American people will forget or no longer care about pursuing their crimes. That is part of their overall strategy.
In addition to Hillary’s lawlessness, President Obama engaged in a sufficient amount of fraud of his own. From ‘Fast and Furious,’ the Benghazi cover-ups, the email scandal, the Bowe Bergdahl scandal, Iran secret deals, Recess Appointments, lawless Executive Orders, to the absolute fraud of Obamacare. Not only did President Obama use the power of the federal government to hijack one-sixth of the American economy with the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare; American citizens also lost certain privacy protections. In addition: provider networks were limited; affordability went out the window for many; insurance and doctor choices were limited; personal healthcare records no longer secured; personal healthcare records made available to the IRS and the DHS; the HHS routinely sends patient medical information to consumer advertisers, while engaging in other breaches of patient/consumer confidentiality. Proponents of Obamacare have tried to shift the blame for these breaches to insurance companies, but, FOIA records obtained show that these directives came directly from the Obama White House. In addition to the fraud of Obamacare (and its collapse), let’s not forget the Obama Administration has been found to have illegally spied on the incoming Trump Administration!
U.S. Law, Title 18 section 1001, says that; “whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully – 1) falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device a material fact; (2) makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation” is subject to a fine or up to five years in prison.
Will we ever see ‘justice’ regarding the Clinton’s and Obama? Only time will tell, but don’t hold your breath. It will depend on “the people” as much as it depends on legal efforts to carry-out justice.
