Our foundation is close to collapse

Regardless of your party affiliation, we are still all Americans. Today, America faces her biggest crisis since 1776. It is not President Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Russia, North Korea, any foreign wars, 9/11, or anything else you might think.

The foundation on which our great American republic was built — equal justice for all — is perilously close to collapse. Today, the equal justice principal is threatened with the political arming and apparent compromising and corruption of our once highly respected FBI.

More than a year ago, following James Comey’s news conference exonerating Hillary Clinton from wrong doing, I referred to Lady Justice lifting her blindfold and giving Comey a wink of the eye that day.

Today, she is giving America the finger. Robert Mueller’s investigation and his partisan group have found nothing. The FBI has ignored congressional requests for their testimonies, no longer answering to “we, the people,” but placing themselves above the laws they are charged with enforcing.

If this disregard and charade by the FBI continues, soon Lady Justice will be mooning the American public.

The swamp is deeper and murkier than imagined with each new revelation. Unfortunately, the denizens of the swamp still hold America’s future in their jaws.

Bush was chastised for not connecting the dots before 9/11. Now the FBI can’t/won’t connect all the bomb craters scattered all about them.

Fire Mueller and his partisan cronies. At least it would be a start to draining the swamp and preserving a justice system for all of us.
