We have seen portrayals of Lady Justice. One stands on a pedestal outside the Supreme Court blindfolded while the scales she holds are equally balanced. Wikipedia says: “Since the 15th century, Lady Justice has often been depicted wearing a blindfold. The blindfold represents objectivity, in that justice is or should be meted out objectively, without fear or favour, regardless of identity, money, power, or weakness; blind justice and impartiality.”
I’ve highlighted cases in the past: one a male probation officer who was asked by and FBI agent if he used his iPhone to show a woman probationer some obscene photographs. He, as you would expect, denied doing it. He was charged with lying to an FBI agent.
The other was the Muslim cab driver living in Quincy Khairullozhon Matanov. He was charged with three times making false statements to the FBI. Neither man’s lies were really significant nor did they interfere with any investigation. These are a couple of blokes who along with others get chewed up by the federal system over minor matters..
Then we have friends of Hillary who were investigated by the FBI in the emailgate matter in which the director of the FBI James Comey cleared Hillary. I’ve never said Director Comey was corrupt but I did say he knew which was the strongest winds were blowing.
He was really afraid. Can’t blame him ’cause he knew about double “D” and double “C” : Don’t Dare Cross the Clintons, It was with trepidation he began the investigation of emailgate (why didn’t the press label it as such or is “gate” reserved for Republicans). He knew to survive he had to give her and her friends a clean bill of health.
Comey gave the Denver based tech Paul Combetta an immunity deal. While cooperating with the agents he lied saying he did not know the emails he deleted were ordered to be preserved. He later he admitted he did know. Then he refused to say what it was he discussed about deleting them with Clinton’s former aides. He got immunity to cooperate, lied during the cooperation, and refused to cooperate. Comedy did nothing to him saying he was “a low-level guy.”
It was also shown that Clinton staffer Cheryl Mills lied to FBI agents. She said she had no idea Hillary had a private email server. Nothing happened to her. She kept her immunity deal. Comey said the FBI looked “ very hard” but couldn’t make an obstruction case “against any of the subjects we looked at.”
The Justice Department prosecutors had no problem with any of this. They too have their fingers in the air and are aware it is a Clinton wind. The simplest soul knows you cannot alienate blacks and Latinos and expect to be elected president.
These are shades of what to come after Hillary is elected. The FBI has already been compromised and is dancing to the Clinton tune. The department of justice thinks it is Lady American Public who is blindfolded and cannot see their dirty deeds.
Then there was Langston Hughes who wrote in 1923: “That Justice is a blind goddess/Is a thing to which we black are wise, Her bandage hides two festering sores/ That once perhaps were eyes.”
Hughes as a black man knew justice was unequal at that time. Those were the days after the Plessy decision that said it was all right for whites and blacks to be accommodated separately by state governments even though many thought the Fourteenth Amendment said otherwise. He suggested the eyes of Lady Justice was so repulsed by the injustice in America that her eyes had fallen out.
The Justice Department and the FBI have become politicized. No longer will there be equal justice. More likely it will be junk yard dog justice..After Hillary gets into office she and Bil will be siccing the department on people who have crossed them.
Not all Lady Justices are blindfolded. There is a lady of justice in the federal courthouse in the Virgin Islands, shown above. She is a young black woman fully alert with eyes wide open watching to see what is going on around her. We must become like her. Dire days lie ahead which requires an alert and open-eyed citizenry.
