There is an old saying that goes: “America has the best justice system that money can buy. How much justice can you afford?” One of our principles is that “No one is above the law” but in reality, some people can get away with things that would put the rest of us behind bars forever.
Just as some banks are “too big to fail,” some people are too big to jail.
Rayn Random at American Thinker:
A friend, who thinks politically as we do here, phoned this morning after just hearing Barr’s comments doubting that Obama or Biden would be criminally prosecuted. We both would love to see it, but consider how destructive the Dems’ legal efforts to get Trump to testify so they could prosecute him have been for the past three years, and then imagine what could happen if the precedent were set to prosecute future presidents of either party. Such a spectacle would draw worldwide attention and obliterate everything else our country needed to be doing that would have more impact on our country’s, and even the world’s, future.
If there were a trial, it would go on for years, and that wouldn’t even include all the appeals. No matter how it concluded, whether it were an acquittal, a partial conviction, a hung jury, or a jury nullification, it would still be argued for decades. Either way, Obama would be a hero to millions throughout the world, and he could go on another anti-American world tour as a victim of an unfair justice system. The ones who actually did the crimes at his direction would be brushed aside in the frenzy and even forgotten.
Hillary Clinton was never in any danger of going to prison. Prisons are for little people. If there is one thing the Elites all agree on it’s that their kind should never be subject to the same justice as our kind. Jailing is rarer than assassination and “suicide” among the elites.
When you see a big fish go to jail, it’s a safe bet that a bigger fish ordered the code red. You don’t really think that a US Attorney, acting on his own initiative, put Rod Blagowhatsitz behind bars, do you? More typical is what happens when some local yokel cops arrest a celebrity for some mundane crime like drug possession or filing a false police report.
It’s not fair, but that’s the way it is. Jailing Hillary or Obama wouldn’t accomplish anything, it would just turn them into martyrs. There will always be politicians who will happily abuse their power, and the politician who would not lie to get elected or to keep his job hasn’t been born.
Little fish, on the other hand, go to prison all the time. Nixon got away, but some of his henchmen went to Club Fed. Guys like Nixon and Obama always have henchmen willing to do their dirty work, but those henchmen don’t have the same Elite Immunity, and when the mob is screaming for blood those little fishies are the designated blood donors.
Jailing the little fish does have a deterrent effect, especially on members of the Deep State. If you lock up one FBI agent, all the other agents will hear about it. Lock up one FBI Director and every agent for the next 100 years will hear about him.
Here are some little fish that should be in prison:
I’ll be happy if at least three of them do time. Nobody will miss them when they’re gone.
Barack Obama will never go to prison. But he’ll never be president again either. What will hurt him the most is being exposed as the incompetent, corrupt, douchebag that he is.
