FBI clears Clinton for the second time

Post by >THE Ben Reilly< on Sun Nov 06, 2016 10:31 pm

Nine days after upending the 2016 presidential campaign, FBI Director James Comey announced Sunday that Hillary Clinton would not face charges over newly discovered emails found on a separate computer.

In a letter to Congress, Comey said he would not revisit his initial conclusion, announced in July, that Clinton acted carelessly, but not criminally, when she used a private server.

Absolute fuckery.

So much smoke and mirrors in this campaign and lies and shit....it's overrriden the actual policies these candidates are standing for.

At least that's an end to that.

It's certainly turned out like that, Tommy.

Whoever wins will always have a shadow cast over them which is a pity as the inauguration has always been a time for great celebration. Not this time I fear.

It's not the finest example of intelligence, I agree.  But it is where one ends up if he follows the conservative docket: hatred for other races, intolerance for other religions, sexism and crude indecency, intolerance for the disabled, hatred for POW's, greed, corruption and glorification of wars.  We cannot forget that Donald Trump is the selection of the majority of conservative voters in the US.  His crude mind and ugly communication skills are a road map of conservatism throughout the world.  If I may, I have been saying this since the early Bush/Cheney years, and some on here have felt I have been unfair to conservatives.  Welcome roosters, come home to roost.

It's first things first.  The Democratic nominee has no choice but to address the worst ills confronting the nation at present, and those ills are Donald Trump and the conservative agenda.  Mr. Trump is the whole host of Republican beliefs, wrapped up in a single package.  So Ms. Clinton is tasked with the chore of pointing out, with particularity, what's wrong with Mr. Trump's ideas.  Some surgeries are bloodier and messier than others.  But it's her job to deal with it...so she gets some of the blood and mud spilled on her.  It's a tough job, but someone has to do it.

Although she hasn't been able to discuss it much, Ms. Clinton could do no worse than continue the fabulous success of Dr. Obama.  The Republicans (Bush and Cheney) had left the country in an ugly, purposeless war, on the brink of the next depression, with double-digit unemployment, a $17-trillion deficit and bin Laden still alive and running around.  Obama got the country out of Iraq, saved America from the next Depression, brought unemployment down from 10.5% to 4.2%, oversaw the creation of 9-million jobs, oversaw the American stock market soar to over $22,000 average in the Dow Jones (highest ever), saved the  American Auto industry, bailed out the world financial system, and finally, created a highly successful medical care system (despite the sour grapes of Republicans)...and, don't forget, he got bin Laden when the Republican administration was completely inept at finding him.  Ms. Clinton, as Secretary of State, was a part of the immensely successful team that did all that.  All of this, mind you, over a Republican Congress that vowed to work against American interests, as long as a black man presided in the White House (the McConnell-Boehner doctrine), because party and race trumped their loyalty.  That's a hell of a record.  The only reason Republicans don't like Dr. Obama is because of his race.  That's their problem.

What you need to consider, as an Englishman, nicko, is where your country is going.  The conservative ideals you have seen fester into injury and pestilence over here, are coming to you.  Already, you have a full plate of xenophobia with UKIP, and your warhawks are drooling at the prospects of another religious conflict with Muslims.  I don't doubt that Ms. Clinton will settle matters here at home...frankly, I worry about you Europeans.  I don't believe you are able to absorb the body punches that we are.

You might be right Quill, myself I don't really care, i'm old and tired and can't be bothered with the worlds ills any more. I'v done my share of fighting for what I thought was right, I look around and think why did I bother.

Never give up...damn 'em, nicko! Fight like you are a new born. Act surprised when it catches up to you. Razz

This American debacle certainly hasn't shown that country in a good light, but though it will effect us (and the rest of the world) we can at least, not being American, detach ourselves from it all.

You are the product of your own actions Nicko.....no one elses, so be proud of your achievements, as I'm sure your family are.

I totally agree, Tommy.  However - and I stand corrected on this - you appear to have changed your tune?
You seemed quite keen to convince people that Hillary suffers from severe epilepsy, using blatantly fake video footage. Even a ten y.o kid could knock up a more credible vid than that one.

As for Trump's staged dramatic rescue from an assassination attempt, mid-sentence, I've seen better acting from the Am-Dram group of the residents at the local  Home for the Bewildered.  

He even gave the signal (hand suddenly held up to his forehead) for his bodyguards to rush in and 'rescue' him!!!

Well I'm quite pleased. Now Clinton and Trump have both effectively been cleared, so the election should hopefully proceed along the proper lines - who people will think makes the best President.

It's amazing how it's all happened at the last minute isn't it?

Actually Trump still has 75 pending lawsuits against him: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2016/10/25/pending-lawsuits-donald-trump-presidency/92666382/

I knew I couldn't be the only one who thought that whole thing was faked.

Trump is still facing charges of bribery of a public official in two states, fraud counts in several states and income tax evasion. He's not skipping just yet.
