Morning Reads for Tuesday, July 5

Good morning! I hope that if you live close enough to your neighbors that you could borrow a cup of sugar, you didn’t keep them up too late with your fireworks display (and vice-versa).

The GOP’s best budget guy, Paul Ryan is a Trump supporter. Ryan’s announcement occurred weeks after Trump says he would be able to get rid of the nation’s more than $19 trillion national debt over a period of eight years (link below). Big ideas guy Newt Gingrich is a supporter too. Rock on Donald. Your coronation is only a couple of weeks away. The GOP’s best and brightest sucking up to your purveyance of nonsense says more about them than it does about you. You’re tapped into the GOP’s greatest strength, a bubble base pandered to by its “leaders”. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/in-turmoil-or-triumph-donald-trump-stands-alone/2016/04/02/8c0619b6-f8d6-11e5-a3ce-f06b5ba21f33_story.html

What do you know. No charges will be brought against Hillary after 110 classified emails were found after she lied about it. Some people really are above the law.

Well, David, on behalf of The Great Pumpkin, I was certainly wrong. Too bad for me. I’m ready for all f the shots my detractors want to put forth. Yall have certainly earned the right bust me up a bit. LOL! Let me say this for the last negative comment I’ll have for Hilly on this: While not a criminal matter now, I still think this is a negative issue that Trump will continue to use against her. I’m expecting those Repubs that didn’t show up for Romney to be upset about this and a good majority of those missing… Read more »

You rang?

Don’t worry, Eiger. I’m sure the House GOP is scraping together a committee to investigate the FBI’s investigation into Clinton. After all, Comey merely said that no “reasonable prosecutor” would bring charges. That leaves the door open for unreasonable prosecutors like Gowdy to pick up the mantle on this thing.

I’m not saying that I thought someone would go to jail or even deserved to go to jail over this. I knew nothing would happen to Hillary, but I will say I thought there would be a slap on the wrist and someone like Huma who was close to Hillary would take the fall. In take the fall I mean something as small as pay a fine.

It really does boggle my mind after listening to the first half of Comey’s remarks that nothing came from it.

I think the “slap on the wrist” was Comey effectively saying “she and her staff are morons, but there’s no criminal penalty for being a moron.”

Werent those classified retroactively or am i wrong on that?

The Eiger

Nope. A number of them were classified at the time they were received and sent according to Comey. If you haven’t done so, watch Comey’s press conference. If you listen to the first 5 minutes you would believe that they were about to throw Hillary under the jail. It did not sound good at all. Then Comey basically says, “well, we have never had a situation like this before so we have decided not to press charges.” Please watch it then tell me what you think he’s going to say after the first few minutes.

I hope everyone woke up this morning with the same number of toes and fingers they had yesterday. I’ve heard of very few accidents in state, nothing to match the exploding backyard cannon in Iowa. http://kwqc.com/2016/07/04/iowa-woman-killed-when-homemade-cannon-explodes/

While the FBI investigation did not result in criminal charges it sure perpetuates the image of a lying and irresponsible Hilly.
