Our founding fathers became outlaws of King George III’s regime. Many had strong allegiance as some emigrated from England while most were American born. They were citizens of the colonies but were driven into becoming revolutionaries that disregarded the laws that were imposed from England. King George III’s selective enforcement of his decrees and unfair taxes without representation to the people of the American colonies created contempt for his government’s arbitrary treatment of the colonies.

The law should be enforced justly and without favor to any. This process builds a respect for law and order. The arbitrary enforcement of the law encourages instability and distrust. Without the rule of law there cannot be peace or liberty. Our freedom is based on the vast majority believing that following the laws is necessary to maintain order.

When law is executed to protect the ruling class, law becomes a tool used only to repress the people. Law and order people become despondent while the ruling class become emboldened to view themselves as above the law. This wedge between the average American and the special privileged breeds disunity.

In the elite’s PC controlled world there is selective enforcement of the law. A Muslim beer company truck driver is allowed to continue on his job and given the right not to deliver beer because of religious reasons while a Christian CVS pharmacist is not allowed to use religious rights to refuse to dispense an abortion pill even though there are many nearby pharmacies willing to do so. This biased interpretation of the law is repulsive to the majority of Americans who believe in the same rights for everyone.

The discriminatory application of the law by the ruling elites is the most destructive to the acceptance to the rule of law.  It undermines the law’s justification.  If a certain group of people is immune and privileged from the consequences of the law then the decrees of government creates a two-tier society: the privileged and the sheeple.

FBI director, James Comey’s 15-minute stinging indictment of Hillary Clinton’s actions concerning her private email server as Secretary of State certainly sounded like she was guilty of gross negligence. He found she had used multiple devices, 100 classified documents at the time, three clearly marked “top secret” and over 30,000 emails personally deleted by Mrs. Clinton. It was found she did use her private server for government emails. The FBI uncovered these facts; contrary to statements Mrs. Clinton gave to Congress and the media.  
Rep. Mark Meadows (R., N.C.) said, “it defies credulity that Mrs. Clinton didn’t know that a “(C)” by certain paragraphs in the emails meant the information was classified.” Mr. Comey disagreed, suggesting Mrs. Clinton wasn’t well versed in the classification system. “It’s an interesting question whether she was sophisticated enough to understand what a C in parens means,” Mr. Comey ridiculously said. “It’s possible—possible—she didn’t understand that a (C) meant, when she saw it in the body of the email like that.” Her position as Secretary of State necessitates her dealing daily with highly classified information correctly.
Stunningly, Comey said Ms. Clinton and her aides were “extremely careless” in their handling of classified information but did not lie or break the law. He did not recommend criminal charges be brought against Hillary. He never even questioned Ms. Clinton on statements that were made to other government institutions, which contradicts the conclusion that she had never lied.  Comey implied that anyone else of lower status that did the same thing should not expect to receive the same preferential treatment. They would be harshly punished for these types of actions.  Loretta Lynch, head of the Justice Department, immediately dropped the Hillary email case.

This outrageous acquittal is a black mark on the credibility of the FBI and the Justice Department’s fairness and impartiality in reaching a just verdict in administering the law. This is obvious, as a sailor took a photo of a nuclear submarine and was convicted and sentenced to up to10 years for illegally taking photos inside a restricted area. A potential political rival for president, General David Petraeus, was found guilty and punished for mishandling of classified material when his biographer and mistress was given access to his personal notes.

Americans are realizing a new normal is being established. The political elites like John Corzine, Bill Clinton, Al Sharpton, Charlie Rangel, Harry Reid and numerous others, even President Obama are above the law. The flaunting of immunity of prosecution, including taking impeachment off the table by congress, is demeaning all our laws. It is eroding the structure and cohesiveness of society.

Lawlessness is becoming rampant. The Democrat Party and the Black race hustlers, whose existence depends on racial divisiveness, are encouraging Black Lives Matter murderous behavior. They are not condemning the call to kill white police officers while wholeheartedly supporting the BLM movement.

Disrespect for law enforcement is breaking down our sense of safety leaving law-abiding citizens feeling isolated and powerless. These peaceful citizens need to push back voicing their objections to Black Lives Matter as All Lives Matter. We cannot stand back fearing being called “Racist” when racism and violence now has become a strategy of the progressive movement.

Only through law and order judiciously administered will our leaders and institutions regain the credibility where everyone is working to bring back a peaceful America. We need leadership with integrity and love for all citizens.
