"Time shall unfold what plighted cunning hides, Who cover faults, at last shame them derides."

So said Shakespeare in King Lear, and now after almost a decade of illegalities and dishonesties in America, they are coming to light.

The question is why anyone should be surprised about the corruption at the highest levels of the American bureaucracy and the American presidency? We have all witnessed the trend.

In capsule form: The Democrats and much of media determined to defend from all negative criticism the new president Barak Obama; this commitment to protect Obama became a problem because Obama constantly lied and encouraged his assistants to be dishonest. Ultimately those trying to protect Obama and his henchman were sucked into the defense to such a high degree, the protectors could not turn back. Instead, the larger community of Democrats and media began to conceal and defend illegalities. In short, a massive cover up occurred.

In the second term of Obama, the dishonesty and illegalities continued, and now the Democrats had several problems: first, they had few viable presidential candidates, second, from an empirical, fact based perspective, the Obama policies, supposedly underpinned by a liberal ideology, had failed. Third, Hillary Clinton so infiltrated the levers of power inside some of the government and even more so, inside the Democratic Party, that she controlled the Democratic Party and had a clear path to the nomination.

During the selection of the Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, it was obvious Hillary Clinton had massive dishonesties, illegalities, and unethical problems. But the Democrats ignored her problems and nominated her.

After the Hillary nomination the Democrats were now stuck with a candidate credibly accused of multiple crimes. She even lined her own pockets and the Clinton Foundation to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. Thus to insure Democratic Party success and protect Hillary from the law, the dishonesties and illegalities of the Obama Administration were redoubled to make certain Hillary wins. The two main prongs conducting the battle for the Democrats were: the media and the bureaucracy, particularly the FBI and the Justice Department.

The Democratic Party’s hope was it could win the presidency and thus, keep stonewalling the release of documents necessary to prove what was going on. It all could be covered up and ignored, but the Republicans won the presidency and the levers of government.

And here we are in America on the precipice of the biggest scandal in the history of the United States with a media so in the tank for the Democrats, many Americans still do not understand what has happened because the press will not report the story or fully report it. More sadly, America has a major political party, the Democrats, which has condoned, concealed, defended, and thwarted putting a stop to the corruption and admission of the corruption.

In the Obama Administration’s first four years, reporters unfriendly to Obama were surveilled, among them James Rosen. To obtain legal authority to do the surveilling the FBI, with the consent of Eric Holder, Attorney General, took many questionable actions: claiming that Rosen was a flight risk out of America and by shopping the right to surveil him to three judges before the last would grant permission.

Gibson Guitar, the owners who are Republican supporters, were accused of using illegal wood for the guitars and the company was shut down at great loss and its employees lost income. A competing guitar company, who gave money to Democrats, used the same wood as Gibson and had no trouble with the law.

The IRS stopped hundreds of grassroot Republican organizations from participating in the 2012 presidential election. One IRS operative made more than 100 trips to the White House during the brief period before the election and one IRS official took the Fifth Amendment (on the grounds she would incriminate herself). Many of the IRS documents disappeared or so America was told.

At any juncture, had the Democrats in Congress acted properly, they would have told Obama to stop the dishonesty (of course Obama knew what was going on), or they would join Republicans and throw him out of office. Instead the Democrats allowed the illegalities and the use of government institutions to be corrupted for the purposes of Democratic control of government offices.

The Democrats learned well during Obama’s first four years and so they closed their eyes to dishonesty and illegalities that went on during the last four years of Obama’s presidency. These more recent illegalities, including those of the FBI and the Justice Department, are well chronicled.

In history, by ignoring illegalities and going along with them, hideous, destructive forces have been allowed to build, resulting in some of the worst atrocities ever witnessed in this world. This nearly happened in America. The beacon of freedom for the world was on the verge of collapse, and the Democrats could have stopped it, but instead they nurtured the dishonesty, defended it, and still, in 2018, deny and obstruct the uncovering of the illegalities. The Democrats are too complicit to admit what has happened.
