The FBI Chief Goes Kerplunk

Thunk.jpeg

Who would’ve thunk it…the FBI chief goes kerplunk. 


James Comey–only 37% through his tenure as Director–is fired for the (mis)handling of the Hillary Clinton email fiasco. 


But Hillary never even saw justice.  


The politics in Washington is forever an ironic cliffhanger. 


The democrats who were supposedly aggrieved by Comey in the election are now screaming foul for his dismissal


And the republicans who supposedly benefited by Comey closing and opening of the case against Clinton are signing praises for his release.


Nothing is ever as it seems. 


Aliens could be falling from the sky and it would still be a political event. 


Washington conspiracy and counter-conspiracy theories…but the work of the people does it ever get done?  😉

Politicized Justice

fullsizerender

DC is in partisanship chaos once again, but this time it’s our very justice system at the heart of it. 


There is widely publicized internal fighting at the FBI and Department of Justice over whether and how far to investigate, let alone ever prosecute, emails and foundation issues from a presidential candidate. 


As the FBI can only investigate, they have no jurisdiction over whether prosecutors are willing to then take the case forward. 


Downtown today, there were signs that said:


“I Need Some Good News.com”


This was referencing the new soundtrack of “Good News” by Ocean Park Standoff, but it could easily summarize the standoff between the FBI and Justice Department and the political parties lining up behind them. 

So there is certainly the need for some good news, as a dour mood settles over the capital and the people around the nation watching this play out so awfully, where politics have gotten in between us and our candidates and doing what’s right. 


From the song:


“I need some good news baby ’cause the world’s gone crazy.”


When even our law enforcement authorities can no longer function without impediment, and when there is no core impunity from political infringement and recriminations, we know even our most basic system of justice has gone awry with political dysfunction. 


Yes, it’s crazy and it’s definitely not good news for the progress and righteousness of this great nation. 😉
