Clinton Guilty, But We're Not Recommending Prosecution
What could possibly make an honorable man like FBI Director James Comey make a public presentation outlining the clear guilt of both Hillary Clinton and those who routinely sent or received classified email from her nonsecure email account, and then announce he would not be recommending prosecution?
The following hypothetical series of events represent the most likely scenario leading up to Comey's bizarre announcement:
Meanwhile, Democrats who would sell their soul (if they believed they had one) to acquire and hold political power are claiming all kinds of nonsense in defense of Hillary Clinton. We're told that this type of sloppy handling of classified information occurs all the time and is all very innocent. We're told that all this flap is just "political". We're told Hillary Clinton was "exonerated" and "found innocent", neither of which are remotely true.
Apparently, a precondition to being a good Democrat is a demonstrated ability to serially lie with a straight face.
Any other individual (particularly any Republican individual) would have been indicted and prosecuted long ago for just a small fraction of the many criminal violations of both national security and FOIA laws that the FBI has incontrovertible evidence were committed by Hillary Clinton.
Clinton's violations were knowing and deliberate. Her brash use of nonsecure communications while traveling abroad in nations of our adversaries reveals a gross indifference to her obligation to secure information concerning our national security.
As a career Federal Employee of the Department of Defense during which I held a security clearance over a career spanning 33 years, I can unequivocally state that there is no possibility that anyone handling classified documents is not completely aware of the precautions that must be taken.
Those with Federal security clearances are subjected to annual security training. Hillary Clinton was no different. Indeed, she apparently ordered her private server within days of when she had a private security briefing detailing the precautions that must be taken when handling or transmitting classified government information.
It is disturbing to contemplate that there may be sufficient American voters who would jeopardize their own safety and security by helping elect someone who:
Rabid Hillary supporters will not be convinced of anything. They are what they are. Hillary could be seen on camera passing TOP SECRET information to adversarial foreign governments and her supporters would provide some rationale for "moving on".
The biggest story, however, is not that Hillary dodges yet another criminal investigation for which anyone else would be tried, convicted and sent to prison. No, the biggest story is the level of corruption in the Obama Administration. The scandals seem to occur back to back and even simultaneously. Political use of the IRS. The release of terrorists from Guantanamo, one-third of them known to have rejoined terrorist operations. Serial lies about Obamacare. And the untold story of the behind-the-scenes activities that led to Justice Roberts' bizarre Obamacare rulings.
It would be a national disgrace to follow two terms of the most transparently corrupt Administration in our nation's history with the election of the most corrupt candidate to ever seek the Presidency.
This is no election to sit idly by or waste your vote on a fringe candidate when it is imperative that Hillary Clinton not be allowed anywhere near classified information or the reigns of political power.

Biography - Bob Webster
Bob Webster, a 12th-generation descendent of both the Darte family (Connecticut, 1630s) and the Webster family (Massachusetts, 1630s) is a descendant of Daniel Webster's father, Revolutionary War patriot Ebenezer Webster, who served with General Washington. Bob has always had a strong interest in early American history, our Constitution, U.S. politics, and law. Politically he is a constitutional republican with objectivist and libertarian roots. He has faith in the ultimate triumph of truth and reason over deception and emotion. He is a strong believer in our Constitution as written and views the abandonment of constitutional restraint by the regressive Progressive movement as a great danger to our Republic. His favorite novel is Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and believes it should be required reading for all high school students so they can appreciate the cost of tolerating the growth of unconstitutional crushingly powerful central government. He strongly believes, as our Constitution enshrines, that the interests of the individual should be held superior to the interests of the state.
A lifelong interest in meteorology and climatology spurred his strong interest in science. Bob earned his degree in Mathematics at Virginia Tech, graduating in 1964.
