The Nov. 1 edition of The Signal published a column by Jonathan Kraut entitled “Choose truth over fear.”

Being familiar with Kraut’s usual approach to politics – a hard-left ideologue – I was pleasantly surprised by his even-handed tone and approach – right up to the point where he wrote: “Clinton has my vote … and I think it’s trivial that a private computer server setup for her personal emails may have contained some business emails.”

There’s nothing “trivial” about blatantly ignoring and violating federal statutes on securing classified data. Nor is there anything “trivial” about using that email rig to avoid Freedom of Information Act accountability on the unclassified data. But that’s exactly what she did.

She and her accomplices knowingly violated federal law, then participated in a spree of evidence destruction and associated corruption that makes Nixon and his Watergate hombres look like rank amateurs by comparison.

If he thinks that’s “trivial,” then it’s his values and ethics that come under suspicion.

    Interesting how Mr. Kraut spent his column trying to convince us that Hillary Clinton should be trusted and that Donald Trump should be feared under the title . . . “Choose Truth Over Fear”. I’ll be nice and just call it irony.

  • hopeful

    You are correct, Brian. There is NOTHING trivial about Hillary setting up her own server, where she conducted all her State Department work e-mails, Clinton Foundation communications, along with her own personal e-mails. How can Democrats be so naive to believe Hillary’s ever changing excuses for setting up that server? The only explanations are either they are burying their heads because they don’t want to know, or they are such blind partisans that they don’t care.

    • Brian Baker

      Hopeful, I was surprised almost to the point of gagging by Kraut’s idiotic characterization.

      “… a private computer server setup for her personal emails may have contained some business emails.” That sounds like someone accidentally used their personal account to send out invitations to the office Christmas party, or something. It was not only stupid, it was contemptible.

      The Dem/socialists aren’t “naïve” at all. They have no scruples. No morals or ethics. They just don’t CARE, and they’re trying to make everyone else not care, too.

      As I’ve said before, there could be video of Clinton cackling while pushing a little old lady in a wheelchair down some stairs to her death, and they wouldn’t care at all. They’d probably try to blame the old lady for reckless wheelchairing, or something.

      Disgusting.

  • nohatejustdebate

    A casual look at some of the headlines of the mainstream media shows nothing about the horrific stories we are learning from Wikileaks but only assurances to voters that the FBI investigation is not hurting Hillary Clinton in the polls. Nobody polled me.

  • Nishka

    Some of Trumps’s October Surprises:
    No income tax Trump managed to lose $916 million in 1995!

    Trump’s personal charity was soliciting donations illegally!

    Groping tapes on a live mic!

    Barging into dressing rooms where there were 14 old contestants and said ” Just think -in a couple of years
    I’ll be dating you”!

    Uncovering the existence of a direct communication link between Trump campaign and the largest Russian bank!

    FBI has been investigating that the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting Trump for five years.

    Earl nineties Trump avoided reporting hundreds of millions of dollars in taxable income.

    ETC. ETC. ETC. ETC. !!!!!!

    AND THIS IS A MAN WHO WANTS TO MAKE AMERICA BETTER !!!!!

    • Brian Baker

      You just don’t get it, projalice.

      No one, not one of us, disagrees with you that Trump’s a bonehead. The problem for YOU is that as bad as he is, your Hildebeest is orders of magnitude WORSE!

      Just shows what a pig she truly is.

    • Nishka-
      Let me assume you are a woman. What kind of example did HRC set for her child when she stayed with her own personal sexual predator? Not a very good one, I’m afraid. In any case, can you imagine the conversation? “Chelsea, dear. We know your dad needs his cajones removed, but you see…we can have money and power if we stay. People will say mean things and both your Dad and I will lie and scheme to get what we DESERVE because people are stupid! I will become a senator and maybe a SOS. People are so stupid, they will believe anything I tell them even if the actual truth comes out, we will be okay.”

      And you continue to believe that HRC will take care of you as their pockets have been lined and aligned with people who would just as soon see America blown to smithereens. Like I always say to those who think like you: Ignorance is bliss and when the ship goes down, you don’t honestly think you’ll be exempt for being such a wunderbar supporter of HRC, do you? You will be as broke and oppressed as the rest of America.

  • robert stauffer

    The whole idea for the secret server was to protect the foundation. Weird how it got discovered and fascinating at what it reveals about the ‘authentic’ character of many democrat players. It must feel creepy to be on their team
    …like the Emperor with no clothes – but this time the Emperor knows there are no clothes….and doesn’t seem to care…

    The ‘Russia’ argument is lame – why would Putin want Hillary to lose if he’s been kicking her a$$ everywhere you look?

    I would expect Putin to want a weak leader for America, like we have now. As a result I think it unlikely that Putin would want Trump to win.

  • Nishka

      • Brian Baker

        Yes Nee, you’re correct. Nishka is a woman, formerly known as projalice.

        She’s part of our local comic relief duo, along with her partner in lunacy, Indy, whom I call “wIndybag” for his endless copy-and-paste repetitive droning about completely irrelevant issues.

  • Nishka

    To the thin skinned repetitive droning posters again:
    “EASY TO RIDICULE !! LOVE TRUMPS OVER “DEPLORABLY” HATERS AND DECENCY TRUMPS OVER
    DEPLORABLE GROPERS, AND TOLERANCE TRUMPS OVER BIGOTRY !!!!!!!”

    • Ah, the response-bot Nishka-projalice-lois. All her posts seem like they are composed by either an uneducated, unemployed social services parasite, or a low functioning Autistic child. Either way, they are a window into the damaged mind of the typical Hillary supporter.

  • Nishka

    Damaged minds are the thinned skinned posters who seem to get their kicks out of demeaning
    unemployed social services parasite, or a low functioning Autistic child.
    It is very child like, narrow mined , lacks good manners , lacks empathy , lacks kindness, and is rude!!!!

    Reminds me of another damaged mind who demeans ethnic groups, disabled people, spews hate and fear,
    who has divided, and damaged America about it’s Democracy into a hateful country , which will take years
    to restore it’s greatness !!!!!

    The GOP will never be the same or come back to the party that is was of Gentleman and Lady’s and some
    sensibility of their conservative views.

    BY THE WAY SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS ARE DECENT, LOGICAL , LAW ABIDING CITIZENS.

    Next time you demean a person or a group of people who are down and out it could be you in their shoes.

    Trump hit 64 percent in the unfavorable or extremely unfavorable categories, with Clinton at 46 percent!!!

    Yes, yes, I’m sure.

    As I said, you’re simply the local equivalent of the shrieking harridan Miss Pantsuit.

    Yes, yes, I’m sure that you are the equivalent of the shrieking thin shinned inane poster who can’t stop complaining
    about another one’s post without your obsessing about Hillary !!!!!!

    But please… do carry on. I’m always up for a good floor show.

  • nohatejustdebate

    Nishka, what does it say about a candidate who could very well lose to the person you’re describing in your many nasty posts? How bad must Hillary Clinton be if America chooses such a horrible opponent instead of her?

    It’s sad that you cannot offer a single reason to vote FOR Clinton, just reasons why people should be AGAINST Trump.

    Save your posts – we can get that every day from the mainstream media.

  • Nishka

    “It’s sad that you cannot offer a single reason to vote FOR Clinton”

    President!!!!!!

  • Nishka

    But please… do carry on. I’m always up for a good floor show from a thin skinned narrow minded poster
    who only likes to make fun of and demean another poster who has different ways of expressing themselves.

    • Brian Baker

      “… another poster who has different ways of expressing themselves.”

      Oh, you mean the shrill hysteria and formless rants are “different ways of expression”?

      Okay. Carry on.

      LOL

  • Nishka

    “Documents obtained by The Associated Press from 20 years ago show that Melania Trump was paid for 10 modeling jobs in the United States worth $20,056 before she had legal permission to work in the country.”

    OH THE IRONY OF IT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I know this is going to go way above your pinhead, but if you are judging Trump’s qualifications based on something his wife did before they were married, how do you justify supporting Hillary given her acceptance of the laundry list of sexual assaults Bill committed during their marriage?

      I know…Hillary has a vagina…blah, blah, blah.

  • Nishka

    “Hillary has a vagina” HOW REPULSIVE CAN ONE POSTER GET???????????????????

  • Nishka

    If you are judging Trump’s qualifications based on something his wife did before they were married, how do you justify supporting Hillary given her acceptance of the laundry list of sexual assaults Bill committed during their marriage?

    Least you forget, how’s about judging Hillary’s qualifications , which are far superior to the Groper’s, based on something her husband did is hypocrisy in every sense of the word.

    Last night Hillary Clinton spoke at a concert by Jay Z and Beyonce’. They regularly use language in their lyrics that is so lewd, so offensive, and so demeaning that it would make Donald Trump blush. And yet, they were warmly embraced by Hillary Clinton as fans applauded the only presidential candidate in American history to be under criminal investigation by the FBI.

    This is what’s become of the Democratic base and the media’s bias.

  • Nishka

    “Donald Trump is being allowed such free rein because Republicans are reluctant to face him down”
    No backbone Republicans will vote for Trump but will not endorse him!!!! WHAT’S THAT ALL ABOUT!!

  • nohatejustdebate

    It’s called integrity, Nishka. Something Democrats must sacrifice to endorse Hillary Clinton who is the only presidential candidate in American history to run while under criminal investigation.

    After shamelessly hugging rap artists last night with their X-rated, offensive, and demeaning lyrics about women, Clinton will be kissing up to Katy Perry tonight. Where was the media’s outrage? Pretty embarrassing when this is the only way she can draw a crowd so close to the election. That speaks volumes about her campaign.

    Perry’s song Hot N Cold pretty much sums up Hillary Clinton’s core values.

    You change your mind, like a girl changes clothes
    Yeah you, PMS, like a biitch, I would know
    And you over think, always speak, cryptically,
    I should know, that you’re no good for me

    “The most outrageous feature of this year’s historic race for the presidency is not that Donald Trump refuses to pledge to accept the election results, not that he bragged on videotape of groping women, nor that he has insulted minorities, the disabled, American prisoners of war and the gold star parents of fallen American soldiers.”

    “It’s the fact that a man so utterly unqualified in character, temperament, judgment and knowledge to lead the nation was able to become the presidential nominee of the Republican Party.”

    It took over 300 days for the FBI to complete their first investigation of Clinton which they “wrapped up” just in time for the Democratic National Convention. Just 10 days for their second investigation, just before the election.

    If Comey’s investigation yielded nothing new, why not just wait for 10 days to see since it was so close to the election? If nothing, no need to re-open the investigation and further sully the FBI’s damaged reputation?
