Comey: Hillary could not understand classified markings

David Burge: I'm just a simple unfrozen cavewoman lawyer, your modern email rules confuse and frighten me

Of course not.

I'll say it again, they own him.

Insulting. We all know the Clintons are smart, devious, out of control power-money mongers. They knew what they were doing.

What happened to the smartest woman in the world? Did she get the glaucoma and self-medicate?

edutcher said...

Why do you think she's wearing those Armani potato sacks?

She's getting round the clock meds to keep her going till November.

No, they're devious, out of control (always have been), power-hungry, money-grubbing, but not smart.

They keep getting caught. And each time it's harder to get them out of it.

They never should have gotten rid of Morris, but that's what happens when you believe everything the Gray Lady and the WaPo say about you.

Thing is, she was required to attend training annually to retain her security clearance, and that training would have taught her how to recognize the markings. She did not attend the training. Yet for some reason, that doesn't seem to show intent to the FBI.

This (example) is why so many people prefer blowing up as much of it as they can, without actually joining the process to slowly affect change.

And I'm tempted when reading arguments in comments online about Hillary's dick being bigger than Trump's, to join in with a quip about Hillary being criminal, mean, and stupid, and her family corrupts everything around as poisonous aura, including YOU.

Then I realize, why am I defending Trump as candidate? Why the impulse to defend Trump as best viable Republican candidate? Why the urge to show Trump better than Hillary by ten thousand miles? He's none of that to me. In my mind, in my heart, he is destructor of political party and that's all. And all the anguish I read online about Trump should make my heart glow with joy and my stuck face smile broadly with delight, and my soul lifted because win or lose these are the sounds of a political party's wrenching destruction. And I never did like them anyway.

It's like the line in that movie, who do you have to fuck around here to get some representation? Apparently the entire Republican party. While Democrats have their own special problems, and if Hillary's criminal retardation isn't a crisis for them then nothing can be. This is a crisis for them. Crisis for Dems. Crisis for Republican party. The best of both worlds. Now, heart, get to beaming, soul, get soaring, face, well stuck face gets a pass.

I can't believe that Comey would say this with a straight face. I can't believe that HRC supporters can maintain a straight face when they hear it. Yet, somehow they all do. We are fucked.

Ethan Couch has nothing on Hillary Clinton.

No, but you have to remember the ends justify the means with these people. Stalin gave them the word back in the 30s. If backing Hillary is what it takes, backing Hillary is what it takes. The Democrats were the same way with Franklin Roosevelt and the Kennedys.

It's who they are.

And, as I say, Comey is owned by the Ozark Mafia.

Methadras said...

Ed,

Pretty much. I outlined yesterday what I believed happened and so far what I'm hearing it's pretty on the mark. It was a fix from the start and Kabuki to the end.

edutcher said...

Not kabuki, more like farce. As I say, the guy who thought it would be OK to let him speak and not invoke executive privilege will soon be found somewhere in Chesapeake Bay.

Thing is, Comey made things worse for the Hildabeast by the time it was over. He was supposed to say everything by the book and we observed all legal procedures.

Except he didn't. As nd told us, the FBI doesn't need to swear in people, but Comey didn't mention that.

BTW, any thoughts on all this rioting and protesting as a way to gin up the riots at the conventions?

Because we know that will happen, but sad to say, it won't be the Trump people protesting the nomination being stolen; just more guys that could have been sons of Black Narcissus.

I'm beginning to think that straight arrow Comey is a lower form of life than the obviously devious Rodham. There's the outer casing and inside -- pure jellyfish. How many such solid citizens I've known over the decades. Makes you wonder how anything holds together.

They keep getting away with stuff so why bother with details like obedience to the law? Why bother being smart? Bill Clinton is a smart man. (Don't even bother denying it; he is. His wife, OTOH, is smart like Obama is smart; because Everybody Sez So.). Yet Bill Clinton very publicly paid a visit to the Attorney General (another ESS genius) who was ostensibly prepared to prosecute his deranged wife. Maybe he was compromising her - though that doesn't really make sense when you think about it. He had to know how bad that looked and that it would get around. But Bill Clinton has never had to pay in a way that hurt for his transgressions against the law or just in general. He's never been held to account and has no particular reason to think he ever will be so he just keeps doing whatever he wants. He's probably banging a fat chick with a rolled up copy of the Declaration of Independence as we speak.

Amartel said...

Comey is a coward, is in dereliction of his duty and/or incompetent to do his job. The only reason to applaud him is that he appears to be aware of these facts.

If Willie was smart, he would have never been impeached. Or lost his law license.

The media saved his puffy old ass. Like it always did.

Smart enough to rig the system as a crime syndicate and remain major players inside of that crime syndicate-- Despite moral damage along the way, despite being old and odious, despite being obvious liars. The Clintons have a corrupt press to clear their path. It's a mob-like party. **Because wimin and abortion and free stuff.**

Crooked Hillary and Shit Stain President Obama.

If they were smart, as I keep saying, they wouldn't get caught.

They peddle influence, which buys them a little protection, but the media fronts for them because, like them, they're all Ivy League Lefties. That's always been enough because the Whigs always attacked them ideologically, but not morally.

Trump is doing that and that's what scares them. When you get Lefty sock puppets like Martha Raddatz calling her Crooked Hillary, you know it's having an effect.

ndspinelli said...

bags, LOL! That "smartest woman in the world" tag is toast. Remember, she flunked the DC bar exam as well.

It's really quite simple, IF the FBI did even a 'C' job in that interview. Either Hillary lied to the FBI, which Comey says she did not, or she lied under oath to Congress. Either is a felony. The BIG IF is what questions the FBI asked her.

AprilApple said...

The Director Of The FBI Wants Us To Believe Hillary Is A Moron
She's not


Walking the line between moron and criminal.

edutcher said...

She acts like one most of the time. She's been getting caught with her hand in the till since Watergate.

What she is right now is a very ill, doddering old woman who has to be led around and fed her lines like some senile actress - which, in a way, she is.

She will end a very tragic figure, I don't doubt. Whatever she's been trying to prove her whole life, she's always failed and she's failed now.

We know how Huma told people she gets confused. We know there's something neurologically wrong with her. She's being used by other people right now, to perpetuate the Obamanation.

One way or another, I don't think it's going to work.

ndspinelli said...

CORRECTION: I'm out of the loop and here's new info.

There was a change in FBI protocol regarding recording interviews. On 5/22/14 a directive came down requiring all interviews of subjects to be recorded, w/ the preference being video over audio. It took awhile for that to be implemented but it is the current protocol. Sheryl Attkisson has a source that says Clinton was not recorded. The more we learn the more this stinks. And, as I have said, Comey saying he needed a referral from Congress regarding her lying to them under oath is FUCKING BULLSHIT! Any investigative agency can go wherever facts lead. Another point. There was obviously no follow-up after the Clinton interview. Anyone knows, particularly w/ a Clinton, you verify everything they say. Lying to the FBI is a felony and she ALWAYS lies.

Amartel said...

The rigging of the system is not the work of the Clintons, Obama or any one person. There's no master plan or evil genius lurking behind the curtain. A parasite doesn't "rig the system;" it infests, at every level. It breaks down immunities and weakens defenses in the host. The Clintons and Obama were just willing spokesmodels for the parasite and have been rewarded accordingly.
