The most recent breaking story circulating out there is that new text messages between FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok reveal that then-President Barack Obama wanted to “know everything we’re doing.”
According to the Daily Wire: “The Senate suggests that this text was not about the Trump-Russia collusion investigation, but rather about the Hillary Clinton probe, which had not yet been closed.”
This makes sense, since this text was sent on September 2nd, 2016. Well before the election.
Another text, written on September 28th, 2016 by Strzok, says: “Got called up to Andy’s [McCabe] earlier… hundreds of thousands of emails turned over by Weiner’s atty to sdny [Southern District of New York], includes a ton of material from spouse [Abedin]. Sending team up tomorrow to review… this will never end.”
And the Daily Wire tells us that “the FBI didn’t inform Congress until a month later that they were re-opening their email investigation into Clinton.”
Another text depicts Strzok calling Virginians “ignorant hillbillies” for not electing McCabe’s wife to the Senate.
And another text written by Page on November 13th, 2016, 5 days after Trump’s election victory, says: “I bought all the president’s men. Figure I need to brush up on Watergate.”
Without much context, it looks like Page was looking to find a way to impeach Trump, if she mentioned Watergate. I can’t be too sure, since by this time, Obama was still President and she could simply be talking about defending him or at least Hillary since her situation is closer to a Watergate situation (in reality, it’s 33,000 times worse).
The Daily Wire notes that the most “shocking material here is obviously the news that President Obama wanted to be updated on the Clinton investigation – particularly when Obama stated on national television in April 2016 that he did ‘not talk to the Attorney General [Lynch] about pending investigations. I do not talk to FBI directors about pending investigations. We have a strict line and always have maintained it. I guarantee it. I guarantee that there is no political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department or the FBI, not just in this case but in any case. Period'.”
Those words will become Obama’s version of “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” He’s blatantly lying on air and his words give us reason to doubt him. This being Obama, we always had reason to doubt him, but now it’s clear that he was lying through his teeth. It’s all about language.
His insistence on making that point is what draws us to suspect his words (aside from the fact that it’s Obama who is speaking the words).
Now, lying to the media is not unlawful by any means. Democrats do it all the time. But while it’s not unlawful for him to lie to the media or even to ask to be updated about any case (the POTUS has every right to do as much), it does point out the corruption of his administration.
He said he wasn’t involved in the Hillary investigation but he certainly was. Comey said he wasn’t investigating Trump but he certainly was. These people are being exposed for their corruption left and right and I’m savoring this moment so much.
Of course, that’s not gonna matter whatsoever to the media and the Left. But it doesn’t matter what they think. THEY ARE PART OF IT!
Now, let’s return to the main topic of this article.
It’s clear that Obama was involved in the Hillary investigation and worked with the FBI to determine an end to it without justice.
So we’ve answered the first part of the title question. He most certainly helped Hillary to avoid serving time for her crimes. But now comes the second question. Why did he help her?
Did he honestly think she was going to become President? Was he afraid of her? Did he fear what she would do to him if he didn’t help her? We already know that Obama isn’t exactly Hillary’s favorite person in the world. After all, he’s the one that essentially robbed her of the Democratic nomination in 2008. That election was supposed to be hers. She was supposed to become the first female President. And, frankly, that was the election she had the best chance to do it. She was a rock star in the Democrat Party and the Republicans offered very weak competition.
After the economic collapse of the late 2000s under George W. Bush, adding that to the fact that Bush was a heavily hated President and the GOP offered peanuts in terms of good candidates, 2008 was the Democrats’ for the taking and Hillary thought herself to be the woman for the job.
But then came a charming African-American 2-year Senator rookie by the name of Barack Hussein Obama. For all that Hillary had going for herself back then, Obama easily overshadowed her. Obama was charming. He was very Leftist. And most of all, he was black. So, the Democrat Party abandoned Hillary and backed Obama all the way to his election and beyond.
No doubt, Hillary felt robbed of something she felt was rightly hers. So robbed, she felt, that the next time she would run, she had to make sure she would win and not give someone else any sort of chance to do so.
But 2008 wasn’t the only time Obama essentially destroyed her. The other time came when he named her to be his Secretary of State. He knew Hillary wasn’t very bright so he knowingly (not that he’d admit it) set her up for failure.
No doubt he let out a good chuckle when Hillary presented the Russian PM at the time with a red button that was supposed to say “reset” in Russian, but instead said “overcharged.”
It’s not the typo that I want to talk about here. It’s the ridiculous gesture by Clinton that should be the main focus. I mean, c’mon. An actual “reset” button? Lame… Sorry, that’s the millennial in me.
But it’s not just the ridiculous button that further damaged her image. Mostly, it was the tens of thousands of e-mails that almost entirely destroyed her. Without that, there wouldn’t have been any investigation.
Heck, without her being Secretary of State, there wouldn’t have been an investigation.
So Obama has somehow managed to destroy her chances of becoming President in two separate elections – inadvertently or not.
But of course, at the time, none of us knew for an absolute fact that she would end up losing an election that has been so clearly rigged in her favor. So he tried to help her avoid being the first President to be sworn into office behind bars (a joke, of course. Prison would’ve meant she would be replaced as the Democrat candidate).
But the question remains unanswered. Why did he help her? Was he actually afraid she would win and she would destroy him? If he was afraid she would win, why not finish the job and destroy her? Why not obliterate the Clintons in the Democrat hierarchy and replace it with his own family?
Am I simply overestimating the power that he had? Or am I overestimating the amount of balls that he had? Did he actually believe she would maintain his legacy? That she would effectively be his third-term in office, just as H.W. Bush was supposed to be Reagan’s? Am I overestimating his level of intelligence, then?
Because the reality of the situation comes down to three choices. Either he didn’t have the power we thought he had (which is not likely the case, given the amount of corruption in the FBI, DOJ and other federal agencies), he didn’t have the spine we thought he had or he didn’t have the intelligence we thought he had.
I can’t say for certain which is the right option. There may even be another option that I’m missing. All I know, and all we now know, is that Obama saved Hillary from going to jail for the massive threat to national security she posed due to the e-mails.
Of course, we’re likely to be finding more things out as we go along. If it’s possible to have learned all the corruption going on within the FBI and DOJ, it’s certainly possible to discover the answers to these questions. Whether or not we will depends strictly on God. He has let us know all we know and without Him, we know nothing. And if anyone truly knows the answers to these questions, it’s the Lord God Almighty.
