Quick Take: No Indictment. No Surprise

Minutes ago, the FBI announced that it would not recommend charges be filed against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (D-NY).

As the reactionist media starts its uproar, I would love to point out that this should not be surprising. Here’s my top three reasons why:

  • Most importantly, Clinton dismantled attempts to discredit her months ago during her 11 hours on the stand. There have been seven congressional investigations on her, which have been marred by partisanship.
  • The idea that Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who has a personal relationship to former president Bill Clinton, would attempt to press charges, is laughable. This announcement is likely more of a relief to Lynch, as she will not be facing the political backlash alone.
  • In the wake of the economic turmoil following the Brexit vote, there is a certainty that the powers that be did not want to create more.

Those who wanted to believe that Clinton would be indicted is a fairly short list.

  • Donald Trump (R-NY) supporters, not just a bandwagon supporter with no other choice. (I’m looking at you, Paul Ryan (R-WI).)
  • Bernie Bros who refuse to support their party’s candidate, and are likely to defect to Trump.

If there is one certainty in this world, it is that the far left media and Donald Trump will find a place of agreement, in calling foul on a corrupt system.

V.P. Pick Critical for Clinton

From July 25th-28th, the Democratic National Convention will meet in Philadelphia and most likely, nominate Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) for president. Sometime in the next 11 weeks, Vice Presidential candidates will announced for both the Democrats and Republicans. This pick could either sink or buoy Clinton’s campaign, being much more crucial than it is for Donald Trump (R-NY) and the GOP. Continue reading

‘Will McAvoy’ with Another Wake Up Call

In 2012, Jeff Daniels lit the internet on fire with a jaw dropping opening scene to HBO TV Series, The Newsroom. If you haven’t seen it, it’s worth the 8 minutes. It was stunning enough that it was shown on the first day of my first political science class in college.

Daniels returns with a spoof on the scene, which is only two minutes. He succinctly highlights why this election shouldn’t be called for Hillary already, like many of the major news stations are doing.

President Trump: The Result of Identity Crises

As the primaries wrap up, it has become clear that the long time front runners in both parties will win the nomination: Donald Trump (R-NY) and Hillary Clinton (D-NY). The nomination and widespread support of Trump has come as a surprise to the Republican establishment, who a year ago was ready to anoint Jeb Bush (R-FL) or Scott Walker (R-WI) as their nominee.  Trump’s distinct platform and attitude has mobilized masses to vote for him, revealing an identity crisis of the Republican Party, but the identity crisis of the Democratic Party may give Trump the presidency.
