Corruption Will Not Be Tolerated… Unless it is massive and benefits leftists

Former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell is about to be sentenced after being convicted of doing a relatively minor favor (making a phone call) to a sketchy businessman who showered the Republican governor and his wife with gifts of clothing, jewelry, and home improvements.

The Obama “Justice” Department brought the indictment, and the Obama “Justice” Department prosecutor is seeking ten years. Was the prosecution politically motivated? Absolutely. Was McDonnell guilty? Yes. Should he be punished? Yes.

Having stipulated that, it seems pretty obvious that if McDonnell should face time in the cold stony for making a phone call to a state agency after receiving a few thousand dollars in gifts, then what about Barack Obama steering billions of taxpayer dollars into businesses run by political cronies who donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to his campaign? Or, the Obama administration awarding key policy positions to executives from Goldman-Sachs after receiving hundreds of thousands in campaign contributions? Or how about Mrs. Hillary Clinton, bopping around the country giving speeches at $300,000 a pop that everybody knows are actually campaign contributions? What about MSDNC host and Obama Advisor Al Sharpton, who owes over $3 million in back taxes? I don’t see the Obama DoJ or IRS going after him.

As long as the Justice Department is staffed with Democrat hacks, they will continue to go after Republicans over small potatoes corruption, while ignoring the big corruption at the top of the Democrat Party. And the Democrat Party loyalists will be okay with this as long as those engaging in corruption support gay marriage and transgender rights, mouth all of the politically correct racial platitudes, and express unquestioning belief in the doctrine of global warming.

This is how Republics descend into despotism.

  1. Judicial Watch is slogging through the muck and mire of the DOJ distribution of a $16.65 billion settlement with Bank of America. Now that is real money.

    I have no sympathy with Bob McDonnell because he wore his big boy pants into the governor’s office and still let his greedy wife walk all over his integrity.

    But the parallel is striking. You will recall that the 9/11 Commission was empaneled to “discover” flaws in our system which permitted 9/11 to happen. What “happened” was Sandy Burglar, Jamie Gorelick, Richard Ben Venista and a Democrat stone wall erected to protect the previous eight years of the Clinton follies. Just like the State Department Accountability Revue Board in the Benghazi incident, the DemonizingRats are experts at making sure the fix is in.

    We have Fast and Furious simmering away, the ACORN fraud simmering away, the IRS mess at day 606, the immigration crisis festering and so much more that it should be fairly clear that stalling, lying, destroying records and controlling access are standard operating procedure for a political machine that is not the least bit interested in following or protecting Constitutional process. Amorality is impossible to shame.

  2. I don’t know the background on the McDonnell case but I heard a comment recently (Mark Levin???) that, among other things, grand juries served two purposes:

    1. provided a means for the people to restrain politically-driven prosecutions
    2. provided a means whereby the people can investigate and, if proper, bring charges in matters where political authority fails to act

    This leads me to wonder why, given the levels of corruption (especially at the federal level) if it’s possible to seat a federal grand jury to look into some of this and issue indictments. If so, why has this not been pursued.

  3. pIn 2017 a Republican President will be able to give pardons to those who received harsh sentences to please the current AG. All the Democratic scandals which have been ignore, as observed Heliotrope , above should be agressive pursued in Congress, readied for a Republican AG. When Holder is out of office he should be investigated and indicted.
