To the Editor:
A few thoughts and questions.
With some of the current developments in Washington, it’s obvious the swamp wants Trump gone and will do whatever it takes to make it happen. The swamp including Repubs and Dems don’t want anyone messing with their get rich schemes. It seems every few days there is another media story about Trump profiting from his position but never any questions how Obama went from barely millionaire status at the beginning of his term to between 25 and 30 million when he left office.
Why would anyone donate to the McCabe legal defense and why does the media talk about how he will lose his pension? He only loses part of his bloated pension and he lied under oath, so instead of feeling sorry for him why is he not being prosecuted? The FBI has no problem with people outside government being prosecuted for doing the same thing. Why are Comey and Clapper not being prosecuted for lying under oath? Why were so many people in the corrupt Obama regime given immunity that resulted in no prosecutions? Why did so many Obama regime officials take the fifth?
Why was Clinton never charged with obstruction when her and her associates turned over smashed cell phones, smashed computers, and cell phones without the memory chips? Why has there never been a demand for an outside audit of the Clinton foundation and their corrupt handling of the Haitian relief fund?
Locally, the race between the billionaires for governors office will probably be won by Pritzger which means the state will be on a fast track to copy Detroit into bankruptcy. His talk of graduated income tax will drive out more upper income taxpayers.
When Rauner is gone the Dems will pass the gun dealer bill. This bill has nothing to do with licensing gun dealers, it has everything to do with not issuing licenses to those that apply or to make the regulations so extreme nobody will apply. Are the Dems really dumb enough to think this bill will stop the illegal sale of guns by the street dealers that are selling to the gangs. It will be the same as requiring citizens to have a FOID card. The law abiding people will have one while the troublemakers could care less.
