JOHN BRUMMETT: Purely political October 23, 2015 at 11:55 a.m.

Whodo: Brummett writing that Whitewater was about pecadillos and contrivances was my point!!! So do you agree that 15 people were convicted by contrivances over their peccadillos? My point about the Clintons is that they and their minions perpetuate the LIE that it was all manufactured and about "nothing". And then I made the point that since they invested in this scheme that was clearly investigated and prosecuted as fraud, you guys must think they were victims of the fraud of the others! That was a statement of opinion about you and the Clintons. The statute of limitations, etc. has passed on this, but the LIE continues to pop up over and over. And you seem to be continuing to believe and defend the LIE yourself. I have said nothing about Benghazi or anything else to lead anyone to believe I am out to get anyone. I am just sick of the LIES. And saying someone else did it too, changes nothing! All people who commit fraud should be duly investigated and prosecuted if there is ample evidence. My comment about prosecuting them ALL was in response to someone saying I was being partisan. If it was a Republican I would still be writing to refute the repeating of out-right and obvious LIES.

The point I was making for those of you that still don't get it... is that the Clintons and their ilk continue to repeat time and time again that Whitewater was about nothing... nothing to it... all a witch hunt. My point is that how could that be true if so many of their friends went to prison for it. They did not go to prison for NOTHING! That is all I have said (except adding my opinion that if you really think the Clintons were the only ones in the scheme that lost money, you are living in a fantasy world).

So to all of you Clinton defenders, I ask: Do you really believe the Whitewater Investigation was totally pointless when all those people were CONVICTED and SENTENCED for conspiracy to commit fraud?

They should have ALL been prosecuted for fraud! All I want is for folks (especially media hacks that know better) to stop perpetuating the LIE that Whitewater was much ado about nothing! Bring Sheff Nelson et al into the picture if you want to (prosecute him too), but it changes nothing about the fact that it was deliberate fraud and the Clintons got away with their share of your tax dollars and folks like you can't stop trying to defend them! And then you attack me about partisan biases! Hilarious! And you try to bring Gene Lyons in as the voice of reason to defend the Clinton's honor! Brilliant!

For those who have tried to remain willfully ignorant of what happened in the Whitewater deal, here is the story. The fraudsters (listed above) purchased land that was not worth a whole lot of money. They did some minor development (put up a gate and sign, subdivided the property), then got their appraiser friends (co-conspirators) to overvalue the land so they could take out a huge loan, allegedly to further develop the land. Then they never even attempted to pay back the loans and made off with the money. McDougal and the other bankers were in on the deal, so they filled for FDIC Insurance to pick up the tab for the losses. Thus they all conspired to steal money from the Treasury (taxpayers). And yet so many people fall for the lie that the Clinton's continue to spew about there was NOTHING to it! And if you really think the Clintons truly lost money in the deal... well, I am not sure what more can be done to help you, except ask the question: Do you really think everyone else took the ill-gotten money, and left the most powerful people in the deal holding losses? Really?

"You see, once you set up a purely political investigating abuse of power, then the purely political investigating abuse of power may exercise flexibility in adapting to the latest allegation or contrivance or peccadillo."

Goodness gracious Mr. Brummett! You just can't help but continue to the dredge up the talking point memo from the Clinton playbook on Whitewater! "Contrivances and peccadillos" don't put people in the penitentiary.

PHOTOS: Bobcat spotted in Little Rock neighborhood October 21, 2015 at 4:55 p.m.

We saw one in our backyard about 6 weeks ago and caught another glimpse of it last week. It emerged from and re-entered the property owned by the Little Rock School District off of North Katillus Road in West Little Rock (off of Cantrell Road/ Hwy 10). I believe it also ranges on the property now owned by the Nature Conservancy at the end of Ranch Boulevard (around the Little Maumelle River bottoms). We got a letter last week from the Corps of Engineers that the LSRD property is being slated for filling in the partial wetlands, with much of the land being in the floodplain. There is also a large pond that will be drained and filled. I have seen owls, coyotes, deer, a wild turkey and other wildlife behind my house (coming from the LRSD property).

Nod: If ANY of THEM left classified information unprotected, or improperly deleted or removed it from the Public Record, then they should be held accountable to the Law. Period.

Ah, you are right, I did not recall the quote correctly.

The first part of Sanders comment was more important than the second... "This is not political..." was the first part. Perhaps you can interpret that another way, but I took it to mean that it is "legal" (i.e. - "let's stop talking about this and prosecute her!") Anyone else want to offer up a more plausible interpretation???
