Opinion: Is Comey Anti-woman?

FBI Director James Comey

FBI Director James Comey

Many have called the press release regarding the emails found on the laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner by lifelong Republican FBI director Comey a political and partisan act. But is it really? Could it be that in his world, a woman as president of the United States is unfathomable? His boss, Loretta Lynch, Attorney General for the United States advised that pursuant to Justice Department protocol, such a release would be a violation of that protocol in that it was too close to a national election. Comey did it anyway.  Would he have done it anyway had his boss been a man? He had no obligation to inform Congress of anything, especially something he had not seen. Most also recognize that those emails could indeed be duplicates. Did he care? Worried about what might be said after the election is not sufficient grounds for his actions. And worrying about leaks from his own department is insufficient as well. Leaks would not have had the same impact as a letter signed by him, sent directly to Republican members of Congress and only cc’d to Democrats. (The ranking member of the Congressional committee learned of the letter via tweet.) He had no obligation to notify Congress of anything, unless it was substantial. He also neglected to say that the emails belonged to someone else entirely. All of his excuses fall very short of being legitimate and point towards a ‘traditional’ attitude by some conservatives – women are not equal to men when it comes to the office of the presidency.

Then again today, the FBI, making it clear whom they favor in this election, released data regarding someone who Bill Clinton pardoned at the end of his presidency. Apparently hoping that this additional information would sway the election. Seriously? Bombarding the public with ancient history?  This is even more sexist  in that the attempt to make her husband’s record her own making it apparent that a woman must belong to a man, even his record.  Apparently they could find nothing else, so they dug up something about Bill. Would this happen to a man who is a presidential candidate? Yes, the press looked into Melania Trump and her immigration status, but only because it related to his hypocritical stance on immigration. But men are allowed to have their own record, their own flaws, but are not tied to the record of their wives.

Yet, Comey has refused to release anything regarding the investigations and inquiries relative to Donald J. Trump and the Russia connection. So the cries of partisanship abound in political circles, with no one daring to say the obvious. That the possibility exists that Comey is one of those anti-woman persons who feel that a woman’s place is in the home, and that the world should be run by men.  Look at the disdain on his face. What was that about? And why a press conference? Because he wanted to do damage.

Even his unprecedented press conference earlier this year proved to be indicative of gender-bias. Watching it again, he cleared her of criminal wrongdoing, but, not without throwing stones at her for her handling of information. He was dismissive of her, as sexist men usually are towards women. As if to say, without saying it, she’s a woman, so she made mistakes.  He admitted that she had done nothing criminal, but could not resist tearing her down with unsubstantiated and speculative comments. Usually, the FBI issues a press release advising that no charges will be filed.

So it just well may be that it was not partisan, but rather a sexist action, trying to save America from having a woman president.  Something to think about when you cast your vote – and when you factor in all of this recent news, consider not only the source, but the rationale.

OPINION: SHAME ON YOU JOHN McCAIN!

Well Mr. McCain, looks like you got your way.  But at what cost?  Susan Rice won’t be Secretary of State.  You have put a cap on a career that was going to even greater heights, based on your lie and your stubborn refusal to even apologize once you learned you were wrong.  But that is par for the course for politics  in your corrupt state of Arizona.   Was it worth it?   Only to you.  But, as you will see, from now on, there is zero respect for you, in any capacity.  It is you who should retire.  Why you are sticking around is anyone’s guess.  

         Most people kowtow to your military service, but its time to say what many are thinking.   it is disheartening and sad that you were a POW during the Vietnam war, but not to the point that you should be allowed to suck the life out of that unfortunate period in your life.  It is Raye’s Radar’s  opinion that you suffered no more than the other POW’s of the time.  Other persons held in captivity went through the same hell that you did, but they are not out there continuously taking bows.   It’s enough that you continue to do that, but you are so envious of others who are going higher places than you ever will, that, just for spite, you wrongfully attack a woman just because you got up on the wrong side of life  and lost your presidential bid.  You are a loser Mr. McCain, in every way, but in this instance most of all. You also know that Susan Rice is more than bright, she is an intellectual heavyweight, something you have never been, and the world got to see that fact up close and personal during the 2008 election.   That’s why you lost.  The American public got a chance to just how smart you weren’t.           

            Susan Rice took the high road in a fight that she didn’t choose, and you milked it for all the air time you could get.    She did not deserve this.   So shame on you!
