HART: Virginia is for bribers

The Clinton corruption sagas continue.

Sharp-elbowed Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is the closest Clinton family confidant. He has been on the board of the Clinton Crime Family Foundation and is a long-time bag man for the Clintons and the DNC. And he just got caught influencing the FBI agent in charge of the Bureau's non-investigation into Hillary Clinton's email crimes.

According to Monday’s Wall Street Journal, McAuliffe's Democrat cabal gave “nearly $500,000 to the election campaign of the wife of an official at the FBI who helped oversee the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s email use.”

McAuliffe narrowly won election because he ran against another one of the socially hard right Republicans I detest. You know the kind of idiotic, socially right-winged Republican whose first objective (if elected) is to outlaw long hair, short skirts and various forms of dancing. McAuliffe's Republican opponent wanted to ban gay marriage and reinstate sodomy laws, all part and parcel of the Republican stated objective of “getting government out of our lives.”

Corrupt inside deals have kept Hillary Clinton’s trustworthy numbers at an all-time low. Wall Street continues to feed her protection money. It was reported Monday that, of the 56 donors in both parties who gave over $1 million dollars, or about $200 million in total, 83 percent of all donations were to Hillary’s cause, and only 17 percent to Trump's.

Crony capitalist billionaires want to keep bidding up the cost of buying politicians; they fear that if the price falls too low, ordinary citizens might someday be able to buy the Clintons, too.

This corruption news comes on the heels of Project Veritas uncovering the DNC funding a “black ops” effort to send disruptive surrogates to start violence at Trump rallies. And WikiLeaks tells us of a $12 million quid-pro-quo Clinton Foundation shakedown while Hillary was Secretary of State. It’s a sad day when a young man with a camera (Veritas) and breakoff Soviet hackers are doing the investigative reporting on Democrats that our mainstream media will not do.

Democrats have turned the DNC, DOJ, IRS and now the FBI into their bullying political enforcement arms. Note that since Dems have been in charge, they seem to have targeted only Republicans: the GOP former governor of Virginia, opposition filmmaker and author Dinesh D’Souza, Tennessee Gov. Haslem’s family business, Rush Limbaugh’s biggest sponsor (LifeLock), Sheldon Adelson’s casinos, Tea Party donors, and former Republican Majority Leader Tom Delay. Before his sentence was overturned for being overtly political, Delay faced three years in prison. One year was for his alleged crime, and two extra years were tacked onto his sentence for his appearance on "Dancing with the Stars."
