US...no longer rule of law?

Post by Original Quill on Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:31 pm

In the US, law it seems is giving way to politics. We revile our law enforcement authorities, while we revere our political base. We pick and chose what laws we want to honor. We create special prosecutors to investigate special prosecutors, as if it's all a joke. We chant lock her up, when there is nothing unlawful that’s been done. It’s all politics and the structure of law seems to turn to vapor.

Obama in fact started this trend. One of the greatest war criminals ever was Dick Cheney, yet as to him and others, President Obama said magnanimously: "it is our intention to assure those who carried out their duties relying in good faith upon legal advice from the Department of Justice, that they will not be subject to prosecution." https://www.cbsnews.com/news/aide-obama-wont-prosecute-bush-officials/ In 2014, the New York Times pointed out: “Mr. Obama has said multiple times that ‘we need to look forward as opposed to looking backwards,’ as though the two were incompatible.” https://www.nytimes.com/2014/12/22/opinion/prosecute-torturers-and-their-bosses.html In true cowardly fashion, this is saying the rule of law gives way to politics.

Is it any wonder then, that on the heels of Obama a true organized crime syndicate steps in and takes over the US government? The Republicans become the Russo-Republicans as the Russian money-launderers begin to take over. Obama left the door wide open for this kind of stuff. Through his snowflake weakness, he let this kind of thing walk right in unopposed, and put its feet on the desk of destiny. The combination of Republican audacity and arrogance, combined with Democratic faintness, will be the great folly of this nation.
