WASHINGTON, March 13, 2015 – When Lois Lerner, the former IRS official in charge of the Exempt Organizations unit conspired with the Federal Election Commission and Justice Department officials to target tea party groups for harassment, she did so using a private email account.
After pleading the Fifth in testimony before Congress, and with a legal pass from her co-conspiring partners at the Justice Department, Learner went into a comfortable retirement, receiving a generous federal pension, a well-deserved reward for serving the interests of the unelected, permanent administrative state against an impudent citizenry.
Attorney General Eric Holder, whose Operation Fast and Furious funneled at least 2,000 weapons into the arms of Mexican drug cartels, maintained email accounts under several assumed names, Henry Yearwood for one.
“Holder has used the aliases to prevent spam and to keep his inbox from being overwhelmed by the public,” the Huffington Post reported. “The aliases were changed twice over Holder’s tenure, once when the email address was accidentally exposed by another federal agency responding to a FOIA [Freedom of Information Act] request.”
And former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had an email server installed in her home to shield her private and government-related communications from the prying eyes of Congress and the press.
At a news conference, Mrs. Clinton said, “For any government employee, it is that government employee’s responsibility to determine what’s personal and what’s work-related.”
Oh, and she said the email server in her home was “the system we used… for President Clinton’s office.”
By her own admission, of the 60,000 emails she wrote while secretary of state, half were of a private nature. So, when it comes to Hillary’s “responsibility to “determine what’s personal and what’s work-related” and, more important, which emails get erased and which are subject to congressional oversight and press scrutiny, we should just trust her judgment, right?
As everyone knows, the Clintons are as honest as the day is long.
“Mrs. Clinton could face up to three years in prison per message if she is found to have broken her word and handled classified information on the secret account,” said the Washington Times.
A more naive sentence has never been written.
Prison poses no more a threat to Mrs. Clinton than it did to her husband or does to Lois Lerner and Eric Holder. In post-constitutional America, these miscreants are above the law. And the bureaucracy that oversees the administration of “justice” wields considerable discretion as concerns its “equal” application.
There can be no equality under the law when persons of a certain status – America’s ruling elite – are a law unto themselves.
Speaking of ruling elites, Hillary’s email-gate press conference was held at the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women conference. “Today, we mark the progress that has been made in the two decades since the international community gathered in Beijing and declared with one voice that human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights,” said Clinton.
Americas’ ruling oligarchs, like those in Beijing, believe they confer rights on their groveling, subservient, unwashed subjects.
The deranged Mrs. Clinton confuses rights with female genitalia, as she confuses the well from which our rights spring as centered in the capital city of totalitarian China; and its guardians as the spineless, moral reprobates known as the international community.
Mrs. Clinton is a liar. And a lousy one at that. What Thomas Jefferson called a “self-evident” truth, the declaration that “all men are created equal” and “endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights,” was once the cornerstone of our republic.
Mrs. Clinton can babble her nonsense, whether of emails or human rights, because Americans have lost their sense of self. They have forgotten they were made “a little lower than the angels” yet “crowned… with glory and honor.”
And in their forgetfulness, they have accepted the damnable lie that America’s ruling elites can do no wrong. That their overlords are above the law. That the citizen is lowly dust to be trampled upon.
