Want to reach the highest levels of power in a Democracy? Gilbert and Sullivan show us how. James Comey followed the blueprint that was supposed to be satirical parody.
Jerry Pournelle reminds us how James Comey grew into the swamp gator he eventually became. Quoted in detail from “Recovery. Opinion/analysis on Comey and draining the swamp; A note on Education.” -23 May 2017.
Comey was a minor assistant US attorney in the late 90â€™s. He only gained power and money by being the DOJ official who â€œinvestigatedâ€ and cleared Bill Clinton of any wrong-doing in Clintonâ€™s totally corrupt pardon (for huge payoffs) of criminal financier Marc Rich as Clinton was leaving the Presidency. This is how Comey began his career as a creature of the â€œswampâ€ years ago, as a servant of the Clintons.
Comey provided â€œcoverâ€ for the Clintons in their gaining incredible power and wealth after leaving office through pardoning a billionaire money-launderer, arms dealer and criminal. Comey was a key piece in how the Clintons upped their corruption game and gained incredible wealth through their foundation after leaving the White House. A huge part of the scheme was giving Marc Rich a free pass when he should have spent life in prison, and that is what Comey covered-up for the Clintons. This set up Comey to be part of the corruption machine, making him powerful and wealthy.
Immediately after doing the Clintonâ€™s dirty work as a DOJ official, Comey resigned from the DOJ and took a position as the head attorney (Counsel) of the Lockheed Martin company, a huge military contractor. While he was in that position Lockheed became a major contributor (millions) to the Clinton Foundation and its fake charity spin-offs. In return for these payment to Clinton Inc., Lockheed received huge contracts with Hillaryâ€™s state department. Comey was the chief legal officer of Lockheed throughout this period of contributions to Clinton Inc. in return for State Dept. contracts.
In late 2012, after overseeing Lockheedâ€™s successful relationship with the Hillary State Department and the resulting profits, Comey stepped down from Lockheed and received a $6 million dollar payout for his services.
In 2013, the largest bank of England, HSBC Holdings, was deep into a scandal. Investigations by federal authorities and law-enforcement had revealed that for years HSBC had been laundering billions of dollars for Mexican Drug Cartels, channeling money for Saudi banks who were financing terror, moving money for Iran in violation of the sanctions, and other major criminal activity. HSBCâ€™s criminality was pervasive and deliberate by the Bank and its officials. HSBC was a huge Clinton Foundation contributor (many millions) throughout the â€œinvestigationâ€ and Bill Clinton was being paid large personal fees for speaking at HSBC events (while Hillary was Sec of State).
Eric Holder and the Obama Justice Department did what they were paid to do, and let HSBC off of the hook for a paltry 1.2 Billion dollar fine (paid by its stockholders), and not one Director, officer or management member at HSBC was fired or charged with any criminal. Exactly when everyone involved with HSBC Bank (including the Clintons and all of their â€œdonorsâ€) were being let off without penalty, and cover had to be provided to HSBC, Comey was appointed as a Director and Member of the Board of HSBC (in the middle of the fallout from the scandal). He was part of the effort to cover up the scandal and make HSBC â€œrespectableâ€ again.
After about a year as HSBC director, despite his lack of any law enforcement experience, no DOJ leadership experience, and no qualifications for the job, Comey was appointed FBI director by Obama.
Farce repeats itself. Once as a joke and then it makes evil history. Gilbert and Sullivan heaped condign excoriation on the social climbers of there era. Today’s comedians describe those who oppose their unearned and unworthy curson homorums as “cock-holsters” for foreign leaders. What once was considered so bad it was a parody of reality is now the defended norm in Washington, DC.
It can get worse for quite a while longer. Lavo Jato in Brazil gives us a taste of what the next leg down will look like. Perhaps soon, perhaps inevitably, comes the revolution. If you do not want to live it; pray that Mr. Trump defies rational probability and actually does drain a heck of a lot of the swamp. If you do want the revolution; root for Senator McCain, Bill Kristol and Evan McMullin. These three traitors, not Red Bernie, will be the last straw that makes about 50% of Amerika resemble LA during the Rodney King Riots.
