As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Hillary Clinton May be Running to Stay Out of Jail

Donald Trump’s promise Tuesday to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Clinton Foundation makes one thing clear: Hillary Clinton may be going either to the White House or the Big House.

Trump is suggesting that he will take charges of criminal wrongdoing by Clinton very seriously, unlike, of course, the Obama administration.

It’s not just the Clinton Foundation and possible influence peddling at the State Department that is ripe for investigation. Trump can easily revisit FBI Director Comey’s decision not to prosecute Clinton over her mishandling of classified information by using a private email server. Her attempts to cover her tracks could prompt charges of a coverup and obstruction of justice.

And congressional Republicans are already looking into whether she committed perjury before Congress. Obviously, she lied to Congress. Whether it ranks as “perjury” is surely something a Trump attorney general could look into.

And that attorney general may well be Chris Christie, a political animal who would have few qualms about going after Clinton.

Meantime, senior Clinton aides who had frequent contact with the Clinton Foundation while they worked at the State Department could also face prosecution under Trump.

On the downside, I’d note, we could start to look like a Banana Republic. Politicians prosecuting their political opponents is not something that normally happens in America.

But Hillary Clinton is not something that normally happens in America. Her potential crimes are so rampant and egregious, we may have little choice but to indict her if we want to uphold the principle that nobody is above the law.

Europe-Style ISIS Knife Attacks Come to Virginia

It appears that now it’s starting here.

A man who randomly stabbed two Virginia residents was apparently shouting “Allahu Akbar” as he tried to kill them. He has been on the FBI’s radar for some time and tried to go to Syria, apparently not for a vacation.

The consequences of the policies of President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, which resulted in the abandonment of Iraq and the subsequent rise of ISIS, will increasingly plague us.

Those who think Mrs. Clinton can solve this problem presumably believe in putting foxes in charge of chicken coops.

According to CBS News:

Police said Wasil Farooqui, 20, of Roanoke County, stabbed a man and woman in a random attack that left the victims severely wounded and hospitalized.

While officers were at the hospital with the victims, a male, subsequently identified as Farooqui, came into the emergency room with injuries of his own, authorities said. He met the description of the suspect in the stabbing, and further investigation by police led to his arrest, they said.

A U.S. intelligence source tells CBS News Farooqui has been on the FBI’s radar for months and is believed to be self-radicalized.

The source adds that Farooqui tried to go to Syria earlier this year but only got as far as Europe, then returned to the U.S., and the trip is what alerted law enforcement to him.

Clinton Jokes About Her Unreleased Emails

A federal judge has ordered the State Department to release some 14,900 emails that the FBI found.

Last night on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, Hillary had some fun with. “We’ve already released, I don’t know, 30,000 plus, what’s a few more?”

Thousands of these, according to FBI Director Comey, were work-related. Clinton had claimed to have turned over all her work-related emails.

So Mrs. Clinton believes, then, that obstruction of justice is a big joke.

And people are afraid of Trump?

Clinton at 2009 Confirmation: Donors Won’t be “in the atmosphere”

Turns out the Clinton Foundation donors were very much in the atmosphere, and truly stinking up the place. From Clinton’s Secretary of State confirmation hearing in 2009. In case you are still thinking the woman isn’t completely full of it, here’s some more from her confirmation hearing. I mean, there is simply nothing she says… Continue Reading

Earnest: Iran Payment Shows Obama’s “Tough Diplomatic Strategy”

Wow. If paying ransom for hostages is Obama’s “tough diplomatic strategy,” I’d dread seeing what his weak one is. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest today said that in fact there were not two “tracks” to the Iran negotiations, as we had thought all along, but three. One to give the Iranians nuclear weapons, a… Continue Reading
