And should they smash threats like they would Hillary’s cell phone?
Instead of dropping the ball, like they have been again and again?
Doug Giles had some thoughts about the FBI dropping that ball:
It’s pretty clear that there are two standards of government ‘investigation’.
There is the absolute terror felt by any ‘little person’ (or even relatively powerful person like Flynn who doesn’t have millions of dollars for legal costs) that gets caught in the legal crosshairs of the FBI.
Recent news leads us to believe that, if they’re doggedly determined to ‘catch you’, even innocence isn’t an adequate defense for some of these investigations. (You can indict a ham sandwich, as they say.)
On the other hand, there is obviously special treatment for the powerful and well-connected.
Hillary Clinton, for example, was exonerated even before she was interviewed. And the Comey memo was adjusted (by Strzok) so it didn’t use language that would implicate her in a crime. And Comey acted beyond his office in declaring she didn’t have ‘intent’.
“She might be our next president. The last thing you need us going in there loaded for bear,” Page said in a discussion on February 25, 2016, about personnel involved in the investigation.
Oh, and Hillary promised to keep Lynch on as AG, if she won the election… while Lynch still had (at least one) open file on Hillary pending. No potential conflict-of-interests there, right?
And Tarmac meeting that even Comey called out as sketchy.
And immunity handed out like Tic-Tacs.
If only authorities took as much care not to let any ACTUAL threats (rather than political ones) fall through the cracks.
Think of all the massacres that might have been nipped in the bud, some not even involving guns! Including the Boston Marathon. Including Fort Hood. Including Pulse Nightclub. Including the guy who shot up that Church — who was stopped by a heroic NRA instructor living across the street.
Can you imagine the impact of not dropping the ball in those cases?
I suppose the next question is… why is the ball being dropped?
And have any deliberate policy choices — like we saw with Hezbollah — in the last 8 or more years had anything to do with it?
Have the mass pardons had anything to do with it? Our unchecked immigration?
Our Sanctuary cities?
Aren’t THESE the sorts of questions worth asking before we rush to set the Constitution on fire?
These days, the answer to that question probably depends on your party affiliation.

Doug Giles, best-selling author of Raising Righteous And Rowdy Girls and Editor-In-Chief of the mega-blog, ClashDaily.com, has just penned a book he guarantees will kick hipster males into the rarefied air of masculinity. That is, if the man-child will put down his frappuccino; shut the hell up and listen and obey everything he instructs them to do in his timely and tornadic tome.

This shirt is sure to liven up the party. It doesn’t have just ONE controversial statement, but TWO. With Jesus in the mix, it could nearly start a riot.
Which, if you’ve read the book, was pretty much what would happen when Jesus swept into town, anyway. But which part of the shirt will get people more heated?
Jesus kicking ass? Some people actually have a problem with that?
Set aside the fact that he’s returning as a conquering king:
Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron.
Even in his time here, he was hardly the hippie-dippie gentle Jesus that pacifists would paint him as. He told his followers to ‘buy a sword’.
He swaggered into the temple like he owned the place. Because He does.
He saw the contempt the merchants and swindlers had for the real significance of the house — and he started braiding a whip.
A WHIP! Then he started, literally, cleaning house.
And before the Fundamentalists get too pleased with themselves… do you know what his very FIRST miracle was?
Turning water into wine.
No, dear. Not ‘grape juice’. Are you kidding? What self-respecting wedding host would have fallen for Welches?. The steward of the feast called it ‘the good stuff’. As in the quality vintage.
Why? Because a wedding is to be celebrated, with wine.
Just how much did Jesus ‘approve’ or ‘disapprove’ of wine?
Let’s flip the question back on the teetotalers: do the words ‘drink this in remembrance of me’ ring any bells?
Now that we’ve answered THAT question… Cheers!
