Harry Houdini astonished audiences in the early 20th century by proving that he could escape any confinement or restraint. Whether hung upside down in a straight-jacket, handcuffed and crammed into an airtight milk can, or wrapped in padlocked chains and dumped in a water tank, he always got out of his predicament.
Now, in the early 21st century, we are graced with an escape artist of equal magnitude. Hillary Clinton is the Houdini of our time. She has repeatedly proven that she can escape responsibility for any dishonest, fraudulent, or illegal act.
Even in the face of irrefutable, photographic, video and eyewitness evidence, Hillary always escapes unscathed. While others who commit similar or lesser crimes serve jail terms, Mrs. Clinton only gets wealthier and more powerful – so wealthy and powerful that she is odds-on favorite to become the leader of the free world.
Her early exploits were impressive. She turned a $1000 cattle-futures investment into $100,000 through a crooked broker against odds estimated by economists to be one in 31 trillion. No investigation occurred.
Hillary’s behind-the-scenes activities in defense of her philandering husband during his presidency are legendary, and a number of mysterious deaths are alleged to be related. Again, no investigations.
After Bill Clinton’s presidency, and during Hillary’s tenure as a senator and then secretary of state, the couple amassed a fortune by selling influence to foreign leaders and corporate entities, laundering the proceeds through the bogus Clinton Foundation. Only 5% of the Foundation’s tax-exempt funds have found charitable purpose, the rest being used for salaries, travel, and lifestyle for the Clintons and their close associates.
With her mojo definitely working and a track record of invincibility in recent years, Hillary has become fearless. She blatantly lied about her actions during and after the attack on the Benghazi consulate. And while this escape act did come under congressional investigation, she still denies the proven facts of her complicity, confident that her firm grip on every testicle in Washington, DC will shelter her from harm.
And now, in the climax of her escape-artist career, Hillary Clinton will attempt to avoid prosecution for a blizzard of felonies and treason. With full knowledge of the illegality and the risk to national security, Secretary of State and Wannabe-President Hillary Clinton set up and used a clandestine personal email server for all of her State Department business.
Some motives can’t be masked. Just as there can be no motive for fighting voter-ID requirements other than the desire to commit vote fraud, there can be no motive for setting up a private communication system other than the desire to keep 100% control over one’s messages. She didn’t just use a Gmail account, like other federal officials have. She didn’t create a private mail account through an internet service provider. Either choice would have provided the “convenience” she claimed she needed, but they also would have left copies of all her emails to be dredged up by later FOIA requests and investigators. No, Mrs. Clinton actually set up her own private physical server so that all the communications would be entirely under her control. When the Benghazi investigation discovered her crime, she “wiped” the server clean. She claims to have turned over all of her emails, but to this date, over half of her emails have still not seen the light of day. Classified federal documents, some of them “life or death”, were put at risk and were probably compromised by foreign government hackers.
Mrs. Clinton is counting on a number of factors to make her latest great escape work. She hopes that the American public’s eyes will glaze over when presented technical information about computers and emails. She believes that her stated desire for “convenient” access to her emails will resonate with citizens who can’t put their cell phones down for more than a few minutes without beginning to shake. She expects the lockstep-liberal news media will continue to shelter her, as they always have in the past. She is sure that her IT honcho and her highly-paid aides, including the “terrified” Huma Abedin, will keep their mouths shut. Mostly she is confident that we are so dumbed-down and self-absorbed that we don’t know or care what’s going on.
If she’s right, we may have the greatest escape artist of all time back in the White House this November.

No one could tell her what to do
Had to learn everything the hard way
She’s on the street, breakin’ all the rules
I’m tellin’ you that she’s nobody’s fool
