America Is at Its Most Perilous Crossroads Since World War II

To say that the USA is at its most dangerous crossroads since World War II might sound overheated, if it were not so obviously true.

Our country is about to (or was about to—we'll see) elect a woman president who, to a great many of us, possibly a majority, is indisputably a criminal and about to draw our federal government into nonstop litigation, more than likely leading to an impeachment trial at the least, weakening our already weakened state, blotting almost everything out, and dominating all our attention and the airwaves for the next several years.

We didn't really need this latest round of email allegations emerging from the disgusting marriage and lifestyles of  Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner, what the NY Post calls a "Stroking Gun," to tell us that, but they have added a fillip, a certain je ne sais quoi to the political party formally known as "Democratic."

All this is happening with the Middle East falling apart, radical Islam spreading across all the continents save Antarctica (maybe even there), Russia and China expanding their influence, North Korea and Iran building their militaries and weaponry with impunity, and the global economy in tatters (and that's not counting relatively local issues like the disintegration of Obamacare and the execrable condition of our inner cities).

And we have to listen to that appalling witch Hillary Clinton complaining that the FBI isn't being "transparent" enough.  This is the same woman who took her entire business as secretary of State offline and lied about it so many times it would take all the abacuses in China to count it up.

As Joseph Welch famously said to Joseph McCarthy, "Have you no sense of decency, sir?"  Only this time it's worse, because Hillary Clinton makes Joseph McCarthy seem like Mother Teresa.

Get ready, Mr. and Mrs. America, because we are headed for a "winter of our discontent" unlike any we have ever seen.  And there won't be a son of York or Lancaster to save us.  With a president already known to have lied through his teeth about the email server, we don't know where this is all going but we can be sure it's nowhere good.

At this moment the so-called "liberals" (how does that misnomer seem now?) are in a frenzy, lashing out because they are afraid her gangster-ladyship might actually lose.  They yowl on Twitter that Donald Trump or Kellyanne Conway were too gleeful about the sudden emergence of the new emails (who knew that even Julian Assange could be upstaged?), but, as her ladyship herself opined, "What difference at this point could it make?"

None, really.
