Will Any Democrat Ever See Jail Time?

We have a two-tiered justice system, to our national shame as a representative republic

Published

on

Nearly two months back, Senator Chuck Grassley, formerly the Senate Judiciary Committee chairperson who conducted the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings, posed a question to the U.S. Department of Justice. Grassley wanted to find out why the many individuals who had committed perjury have yet to be indicted.

The investigation conducted by the Senate Judiciary Committee in November 2018, revealed that allegations made against Brett Kavanaugh, especially allegations made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford were devoid of credibility and, generally, were blatantly false. The Senate Judiciary Committee presented a 414-page report to Congress.

Let Us Know

Grassley essentially said that more than two years ago “We had some bogus allegations against now Justice Kavanaugh. We know people lied to Congress and that’s against the law.” So he presented a criminal referral to the Department of Justice seeking prosecution.

We would all like to know why no action has been taken by DOJ! What’s more we have other pressing concerns. Numerous Russiagate criminals likely won’t spend time in prison. James Comey won’t spend a day in jail despite lying to Congress. Andrew McCabe, dismissed by the FBI for ‘lack of candor’ and for other infractions, is still as free as bird. James Clapper will not likely spend a single day in prison, yet he lied to Congress, and then lied again about his lie, saying that “he was confused.”

Perhaps the most hardened criminal director that the CIA has ever had to endure, John Brennan likely will serve no time in lock-up. Brennan flagrantly conspired in the White House, with Barack Obama and Joe Biden, when he coughed up information revealing that Hillary Clinton had purchased a fake dossier to besmirch Donald Trump.

Not one of the people above is slated to be indicted, yet some have earned lengthy prison sentences for treason.

Serial Offenders

The king of political criminals, Barack Obama, won’t likely spend a day behind bars. In fact, he is now serving his third term as president, via his deft control of Biden. Obama weaponized the federal agencies, undermined Trump, and spent four years (of treasonous activities) to thwart the Trump Administration. All of this has gone unprosecuted.

Everyone connected with the Obama Administration, including the Eric Holder, the first U.S. attorney general held in contempt of Congress, and whose criminality in allowing Black Panther intimidation in Philadelphia and a variety of other egregious acts, won’t spend one minute behind bars.

Lois Lerner, who quashed the Tea Party movement by illegally using the power of her government position to intimidate, harass, and hinder Tea Party members, won’t see a single day in prison. In fact, she has been on the public dole for eight years running and receives a generous government healthy pension.

The one and only Hillary Clinton won’t spend a day in prison for any of the 33,000+ subpoenaed emails that she deliberately deleted. Yet, rank and file servicemen and women will serve at least 6 to 12 months in a federal pen for the crime of deleting even one classified email.

Each member of Hillary Clinton’s corrupt staff will see no jail time. Not, John Podesta, whose crimes are well-documented, or Huma Abedin, whose obfuscation and manipulations for Hillary Clinton deserve major scrutiny.

More Than Meets the Eye

All of the sinister activities to get Joe Biden ‘elected’ and virtually all of the treasonous individuals who participated in the election fraud are still free and unindicted. And Hunter Biden and the Biden crime family remain untouched.

In the coming months, as 2020 election-related crimes are more fully exposed, will the clamor from the Right be sufficiently loud and long? After all, YEARS have gone by with no progress.

Are the puppet masters waiting for Joe Biden to croak, going to use the 25th Amendment to dislodge him, or keeping him under their control for as long as practical? Who can say? Concurrently, the puppet masters will do anything in their power to harass, belittle, and indict those on the Right for even the slightest of offenses. This includes process crimes.

We dwell in a society with a two-tiered justice system, to our national shame as a representative republic. Until justice is dispensed fairly and equally, regardless of the party, the challenge before us remains clear and vital.

Education

Make Universities Accountable for Predatory Student Loan Abuse

Published

on

The Biden administration is still talking about delivering on the President’s promise to relieve student loan debt for many Americans. There is continuing discussion on how much debt should be forgiven, how to pay for it, and whether it is fair to all those who have diligently and painfully worked to already pay off their own student loans. After all, if you’re going to eliminate student debt to buy votes, why just limit it to student debt?

Unfortunately for Biden, according to numerous sources including National Review, the executive branch has no generalized power to forgive any amount of student debt. Even Nancy Pelosi confirmed simply that “the president can’t do it. That’s not even a discussion.” The Department of Education came to the same verdict, determining that the executive branch “does not have the statutory authority to cancel, compromise, discharge, or forgive, on a blanket or mass basis, principal balances of student loans, and/or to materially modify the repayment amounts or terms thereof.”

Of course, even if he had the authority, forgiving student debt doesn’t make the debt go away. Reality has a way of breaking into such “freeloading” dreams. It’s pay me now, or somebody else pay me later. But why should some future taxpayer pay off anyone else’s student debt?

Whatever happened to wise warnings of “student beware.” When you get an education and agree to pay the tuition, you ought to realize that you must at some point pay for that education. You signed on the bottom line. Face your real-world responsibilities. Hopefully, you picked a degree major that will ensure a career capable of paying off your loans. Students clearly have some responsibility, but what about the universities that took advantage of the money coming from those loans?

After all, there is ample evidence that student tuitions exploded far faster than inflation when government funds became readily available for student loans. Complaints of excessive tuition increases by students trapped in their programs tended to be met with a less than caring response—pound sand!

Since 2008, the tuition cost or a four-year college degree has increased nearly 25%. In that same period, student debt has doubled, increasing by 107%. 2015 study found that a dollar of subsidized student loans results in a published tuition increase of 58 cents at a typical university, An NBER paper suggests that changes to federal student loans are more than sufficient to explain tuition increases at private nonprofit colleges. And a 2014 study found that for-profit colleges eligible for federal student aid charged tuition 78% higher than that of similar but aid-ineligible institutions.

In short, there is no doubt that tuition was rising faster than the inflation level. Evidence has been clear for decades. In 1987, Secretary of Education William J. Bennett argued that “increases in financial aid in recent years have enabled colleges and universities to raise their tuition, confident that Federal loan subsidies would help cushion the increase.”

Bennett pointed out in 1987 that federal student aid had risen 57 percent since 1980, while inflation had been 26 percent. A 2020 analysis by the Congressional Budget Office brought the numbers up to date: “Between 1995 and 2017, the balance of outstanding federal student loan debt increased more than sevenfold, from $187 billion to $1.4 trillion (in 2017 dollars).” What is the lesson? The more federal aid to students is available colleges raise tuition more. Salaries rise and bureaucracies expand. There are more courses, more dorms, dining halls, lavish recreational centers, and more money for endowments.

Far too many students find that once they begin their education, their schools raise the tuition at such a high rate that their debt explodes. The university builds their endowment, and the “trapped” student is compelled to finish what they started at a cost they did not expect to have to pay. In such a situation, should not the university be responsible for any increased cost above the increase in cost of living during the same time? It’s time for universities to take responsibility for their share of student debt.

The universities that benefited from these loans should have a part in footing the bill. That means universities that raked in millions to inflate endowments should be holding the bag for those who can’t afford to pay their loans. With universities holding hundreds of billions of dollars in tax-free endowments, any government program to relieve student debt should be completely dependent on taxing those university endowments.

It’s time to counter the Democrats’ vote-buying scheme by making lasting changes to the student loan process. That means putting universities on the hook for their predatory behavior. That will go much further than a temporary payoff that does nothing to solve what is causing the problem.

Tucker: Why are they so angry?

There’s no Constitutional requirement to have respect for anybody in the US government. In fact, in a free country you are encouraged to disagree. You are a citizen, you have that inherent right. But, no more.

Published

Tucker gives an extended list of several people who were arrested or had their homes raided, without explanation, for no crime. Highlights include:

“Why have a political debate when you can just arrest people who disagree with you? And that has happened, far below the media radar since the day Joe Biden was elected, and tonight we want to show you … a litany, a list of Americans who have been arrested, detained by federal law enforcement on the orders of the Biden administration, not because they committed recognizable crimes but because they disagreed with the political aims of the Biden administration.”

“Ooh, Trumps a fascist, remember that? Did Trump’s DOJ raid the homes of a lot of journalists who embarrassed his children? No, you don’t remember that, because it didn’t happen. But Joe Biden’s justice department has done that, and then they kept going.”

“We don’t arrest people for ignoring congressional subpoenas, especially when they cite executive privilege, a principal that has a long history in American history, so no, we’ve never done that, but we can do it now because it was ‘an insurrection’, an insurrection that wasn’t armed, wasn’t planned, it didn’t actually insurrect anything, but it was still an insurrection. Now you’re beginning to see why it’s been so important from the very first day for the media to describe what happened on January 6 not as a riot, but as an insurrection, because if it’s an insurrection, they can violate your civil rights.”

“So, a decade ago the Obama administration was caught sending automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels and Congress wanted to know more about this. Eric Holder, then the attorney general, had a key role in this, ‘operation fast and furious’, you may remember it. So, they subpoena’d him, and he ignored the subpoena, and the media applauded, he was taking a noble position. But when Steve Bannon or Peter Navarro tried to do something like that, they went to jail. Again, we had this exact same thing happen in public ten years ago. A federal judge ruled that Holder’s privilege claim was not legitimate, and he was still never arrested, but the rules have changed. Why is that?”

“There’s no Constitutional requirement to have respect for anybody in the US government. In fact, in a free country you are encouraged to disagree. You are a citizen, you have that inherent right. But, no more. The media think you should be sent to jail if you show disrespect, and so of course, with no media to push back against unconstitutional overreach, the justice department kept going.”
