Patricia McCarthy writes at American Thinker:
We are semi-officially a lawless, soft (but hardening) tyranny. How else does one explain Lois Lerner not being charged with the numerous crimes she has most certainly committed?
As many others have noted, the fix was in as surely as the fix is in on the countless crimes committed by Hillary Clinton and her grubby Clinton Foundation that sells influence at very high prices. Like Lerner, Clinton likely will be deemed above the law by the DOJ and the FBI.
By way of contrast, "General Petraeus and several others were charged, jailed and/or fined for crimes so minimal compared to Hillary's because they did not toe the Obama line: no deviation from the agenda is allowed, no criticism of the regime will be tolerated," McCarthy observes.
As for "American citizens outside of the protective bubble of the government," they "are not only expendable, they are fodder for bureaucratic abuse," McCarthy writes.
McCarthy concludes with this quote from Montesquieu: "There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice."
