The LuLac Edition #3242, July 7th, 2016

FBI Director Jameds Comey (Photo: ABC News)
So no one can disagree that James Comey tore Hillary Clinton apart in his presentation the other day. However that didn’t seem to be enough for the Republican Party. Comey who uncharacteristically commented on the inner works of an investigation is still being assailed by the GOP because he just didn’t do enough.
The bigmouth bully host on Morning Joe, Joe “I was in Congress, yep by golly” even went so far as to say Comey was a coward.
Comey who has been an upstanding FBI official, a person who is politically one of theirs is already persona non gratta with the GOP because he didn’t announce an indictment.
So James Comey, join the club. You are now officially hated by the party of no.


As the GOP Congress declined to take a vote on guns, they did want to take action on investigating the FBI probe of Clinton’s e mails.
This is the same Congress that spent 7 million on Benghazzi, and wants to spend more on an investigation into what the FBI did. All of a sudden Congress knows better than the FBI?
Yet this is the same Congress who will spend money on investigations while they deny disaster relief for floods and tornadoes until it can pay for it and who by the way cut security funding for U.S Embassy protection.
These GOP members need to go.

The summer before Scranton Mayor Jim McNulty died, I’d have conversations with him about politics. The Mayor was excited about the prospect of a Joe Biden vs. Hillary Clinton race. McNulty was convinced Biden would run. He felt Biden might not be successful but envisioned a great meeting in Scranton where Biden the hometown son and Hillary Clinton, Scranton’s adopted daughter would return triumphant in their own manner and way.
Jim McNulty always was a man of vision. I thought about our conversations when the announcement was made the other day.
Too bad the Mayor’s physical presence will be absent but I can assure his spirit will be floating around Friday in the city.

Congressman Lou Barletta voted in favor of sweeping legislation to reform the mental health system, addressing the needs of more than 10 million Americans facing serious mental illness and the countless others who go without diagnosis or treatment. The Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act (H.R. 2646), authored by Rep. Tim Murphy (PA-18), breaks down federal barriers to care, clarifies privacy standards for families and caregivers; reforms outdated programs, expands parity accountability, and invests in services for the most difficult to treat cases while driving evidence-based care. H.R. 2646 passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 422-to-2.
“For too long, people with mental illnesses have been stigmatized and neglected by a health care system that did not adequately respond to their needs,” Barletta said. “This is important legislation that will help individuals and families identify and treat conditions that have impacted so many lives.”

The biggest problem is the sycophants on both sides who are eschewing reason for lunacy.
Deliberate rational is being tossed out the window in support of Clinton and Trump. And in its place blind faith has become the norm. Have the American people, for all the advances in the world since the Nixon era, really become less informed, and dare I say, even more stupid?
Trump is an asshole, he is a fear mongering jackal, which all politicians are, but he is overt about it, and instead of playing to political fears, he is playing to base fears, and sadly those who follow him are looking for someone to protect them. His devices are as transparent as cellophane, and have been since the name Trump became known. Yet, because of so much dissatisfaction among voters he took the republican nomination, and that same dissatisfaction almost gave a socialist from Vermont a similar victory on the Dem side. Satisfaction can lead to being blinded and just wanting someone different, and Trump appears to be different.
On the other side, it is not much different, except Clinton managed to survive because Sanders didn't get traction until it was too late. Yet, the Clinton supporters are blinded to the inner ugliness of their candidate as much as the Trump supporters.
I hate the tinfoil hatters, but think of this chain of events.
Bill meets Lynch, soon after,
Lynch says she will follow FBI recommendations, soon after,
FBI decides to apply only ONE legal statute, the one with intent, and not recommend charges. Even though she violated potentially half a dozen laws that deal with the handling of classified information, he chose the one, he actually co-mingled two, but he chose the one that is easiest to give a pass on.
A mutual friend and I had lunch yesterday, and we kind of bandied about the whole issue of Hilary's primary premise of why the private, non-government, servers were set up; convenience.
Was it more convenient to set up all the hardware?
Was it more convenient to set up separate encryption?
Was it more convenient to arrange for 24/7 physical security? (which may have been lacking)
Was it more convenient to ensure properly trained personnel kept the servers up and running?
Was it more convenient to set up a dual system that paralleled and existing system?
Was it more convenient to update and replace servers and other ancillary equipment?
Or, would it have been more convenient to log on to a .gov account, where all equipment and measures were in place, and check one's email?
If someone just questioned her premise, then, one could have established intent. Her intent was and is driven by paranoia. Her intent was to bypass governmental control of her communications, but for some reason, she has been given a pass.

Trump made a stupid comment about shooting someone in the street and his supporters would stand by him, which sadly may be true. But, sadder so, is it is the same for Clinton.

Trump appeals to the dissatisfied and those who believe themselves to be disenfranchised, so fanaticism is almost understandable.

Those who support Hilary claim to be intellectual or at least thoughtful people, who believe themselves to be reasoned. Yet, these reasoned people don't want to follow information to logical conclusions. That is what makes all of this so unbelievable.

When we take what is known as a whole, and we apply to it reason, the only conclusion, no matter how impossible we would like it to be, starts to become more and more probable.

But, we will close our eyes to history, and let a paranoid politician once again enter the White House. Then, when something goes wrong, we will ask ourselves why.

"Voting for Hillary because you don't like Trump, Is like eating a turd because you don't like broccoli "

I heard the reason we lost the last election was that millions of evangelicals stayed home on voting day, rather than see a Mormon in the presidency. Tragic mistake.

To stay home just because we don't like The Donald would mean millions of votes for Hillary!

From the time I was able to vote, I voted Republican.

Recently I received a questionnaire from the RNC and a request for money and to strongly agree with every question in the questionnaire, as I have on previous occasions.

Unfortunately the one question that was missing this time around is: What have the Republicans done for the American people lately?

We gave you a majority in the house and senate, and you never listened to us.

Now you want our money, my money, more money.

You should be more concerned about our votes, not our money.

You are the establishment which means all you want is to save your jobs and line your pockets.

Well guess what? It's not going to happen. TRUMP hasn't asked for a dime. But people are now sending him large amounts of money!

You might think we are fools because you feel Trump is on a self-destruct course, but look beyond Washington and listen to the masses. Nobody has achieved what he has, especially in the state of New York.

Here's why I want Trump. Yes, he's a bit of an ass; yes, he's an egomaniac; but I don't care.

The country is a mess because politicians think they know what best for us.

The Republican Party is two-faced and gutless, and illegals are everywhere.

I want it all fixed!

I don't care that Trump is crude.

I don't care that he insults people.

I don't care that he has changed positions.

I don't care that he's been married 3 times.

I don't care that he fights with Megan Kelly and Rosie O'Donnell.

I don't care that he doesn't know the name of some Muslim terrorist.

Our country has become weak and morally bankrupt. Our enemies are making fun of us. We are being invaded by illegals. We are becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo and Hassid is a special group with special rights to a point where we don't even recognize the country we were born and raised in, "I JUST WANT IT FIXED." And Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what we the people want.

I'm sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic Party, the Republican Party, and sick of illegals. I just want this thing fixed. Trump may not be a saint, but he doesn't have lobbyist money controlling him; he doesn't have political correctness restraining him; all you know is that he has been very successful; a good negotiator; he has built a lot of things; and, he's also not a politician. And, he says he'll fix it. And, I believe him because he is too much of an egotist to be proven wrong or looked at and called a liar.

I don't care if the guy has bad hair.

I just want those problems gone. NOW!

Thought for the Day

"No country can sustain, in idleness, more than a small percentage of its numbers. The great majority must labor at something productive!"

P.S. No Borders, No Language, No Culture = No Country.

The alternative in this election is the most corrupt person to ever run for president, a habitual liar, and traitor who sells out our country to the highest bidder.

Perhaps Comey was making the case against Clinton as the custodian of national security secrets with a credibility the GOP cannot match, while refusing to determine her fate by urging an indictment, and instead leaving her future in our hands.
And, ultimately, should not this decision rest with the people, and not the FBI?
If, knowing what we know of the "congenital mendacity" of Hillary Clinton, the nation chooses her as head of state and commander in chief, then that will tell us something about the America of 2016.

And it will tell us something about the supposed superiority of democracy over other forms of government.

#Time 4 Trump

Both set up personal communication devices.
Both selectively released information contained within those devices.
Both deleted portions of the information contained within those devices.
Both lied to the American people concerning their actions with the information contained within those devices.
One resigned in disgrace, the other got a free pass and is laughing at the gullibility and stupidity of her supporters.

Hey I am pretty sure those police officers did not intend to go out and kill black people. I am pretty sure their intent was to protect themselves and go home to their families. Both were careless and negligent and the end result was the death of two people and potential riots and murders of others. Should we give them a ****ing free pass also? You ****suckers who think Clinton was in the clear because of some misinterpreted use of the word intent are a bunch of ****ing hypocrites. Carelessness and intent are irrelevant to whether a crime as been committed

JAMES COMEY is a petty bureaucrat who may at the same time just pulled of the most brilliant scheme to keep his job after the next election.

If Hilary wins; he didn't recommend an indictment helping her along to victory.

If Donald wins; he gave a long laundry list of what could be deemed treasonous behavior, helping him along to victory.

Either way, the victor is indebted to him, and the weasel bureaucrat keeps his job.
