David Brooks, "The Coming Political Realignment": Lynch Prepared to Meet With the Spouses of All Persons Under FBI Investigation?

In his latest New York Times op-ed entitled "The Coming Political Realignment," David Brooks discusses Donald Trump's chances of winning the presidential election. Brooks writes:

"Trump’s only hope is to change the debate from size of government to open/closed. His only hope is to cast his opponents as the right-left establishment that supports open borders, free trade, cosmopolitan culture and global intervention. He would stand as a right-left populist who supports closed borders, trade barriers, local and nationalistic culture and an America First foreign policy."

"Open/closed"? I'm no fan of Trump, but a more important issue arose when US Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with Bill Clinton on Monday. No discussion by the two of the email server in Hillary and Bill's Chappaqua home? Talk only of grandchildren, travel and golf? Why do I have my doubts?

Care to undergo a polygraph test, Loretta?

But even if they only spoke about grandchildren, this would be inappropriate given the investigation of the email server that Lynch is supervising and the decision faced by her concerning a possible indictment of Hillary.

I would contend that Lynch is now obligated to meet with the spouses of all persons whom the FBI is investigating to talk about grandchildren, travel and golf. Fair is fair.

That, or she should resign.

But she won't resign. Indeed, the rule of law has collapsed in the United States. There is one set of rules for the Clintons and another for the hoi polloi.

The coming political realignment? It's bigger than you think, David. In fact, it's all about how the United States became a banana republic on a Phoenix tarmac.


  1. Is her judgment really that bad to enter into such a meeting? As an attorney himself,is he that brazen to imagine that no stink would ensue from such a meeting? Should the public just assume that Clinton clout will give them teflon status? ...Nauseating.

  2. very symbolic that Bill met with Loretta on the tarmac in fly-over America. They were probably discussing how to wage bathroom wars in the new swing state of North Carolina. (Obama+ Hillary in Charlotte, and Trump in Raleigh on July 5, after the fun fireworks.)

    David Brooks read this first:
    Scott McConnell
    "...border wars have replaced culture wars..."

    I disagree somewhat. It appears education in America is now mostly brainwashing: "...Administrators at the Bank Street School for Children on the Upper West Side claim it’s a novel approach to fighting discrimination, and that several other private New York schools are doing it, but even liberal parents aren’t buying it.

    They complain the K-8 school of 430 kids is separating whites in classes where they’re made to feel awful about their “whiteness,” and all the “kids of color” in other rooms where they’re taught to feel proud about their race and are rewarded with treats and other privileges. ..." quoting the NYPost.

    The rule of law has not collapsed in America. No need when the education system has been hijacked by the politically-so-correct that everyone else has to go to jail, or die.

    brush up on your Russian JG.

  3. the real political realignment, not identity politics, nor racism::

    "...Living standards are stagnating, vicious wars raging, poverty-stricken migrants pouring across borders and class chasms growing. Amidst this, the crony capitalists and their bureaucratic allies have only grown more arrogant and demanding. But the failures of those who occupy what Lenin called “the commanding heights” are obvious to most of the citizens on whose behalf they claim to speak and act.

    The Great Rebellion draws on five disparate and sometimes contradictory causes that find common ground in frustration with the steady bureaucratic erosion of democratic self-governance: class resentment, racial concerns, geographic disparities, nationalism, cultural identity..."
