All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others. The Clintons? They're just pigs.

It turns out that the primary "charitable" activity of the Clinton Foundation was the employment of Clinton operatives between campaigns.  Well that and running a roaring market in influence futures.

The scandal of the century at the IRS was that agency’s secret targeting of conservative nonprofits. Perhaps a close second is the scandal of what the IRS hasn’t been investigating: the Clinton Foundation.

The media’s focus is on Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state, and whether she took official actions to benefit her family’s global charity. But the mistake is starting from the premise that the Clinton Foundation is a “charity.” What’s clear by now is that this family enterprise was set up as a global shakedown operation, designed to finance and nurture the Clintons’ continued political ambitions. It’s a Hillary super PAC that throws in the occasional good deed.

Letting a party led by such creatures get power is deadly to the Republic. But once the Feds became richer and more powerful than all other institutions combined its criminal capture became inevitable. 

When an institution becomes able to destroy other institutions and the wealth and livelihoods associated with them it becomes imperative to align yourself with that overwhelming locus of power. So the heavies of our nation and globe are scurrying to sew up their insider deals while the people amuse themselves by guessing which cup Bruce Jenner's testicles are under.

Bread and circuses indeed.
