When I was in high school studying history and government, my friends and I used to laugh at the Latin American Banana Republics. A “Banana Republic” is one in which the ruling class of elites exploit Governmental power for their own benefit at the expense of the rest of the population. Rule of Law is replaced by Rule of Those in Charge. The leaders rake in massive amounts of illegal wealth and stand completely immune from prosecution.
The saga of Hillary Clinton is the saga of the United States’ descent into Banana Republic status. I knew when it was announced that she was “voluntarily” meeting with FBI Director James Comey that the fix was in. I knew it before that. I knew it when Bill Clinton illegally and unethically met with Loretta Lynch. A meeting she knew better than to coordinate. But that told me the fix was in. Interestingly there’s a deep connection between Lynch and Comey.
