Justice Department officials were scheduled to interview four
candidates Saturday to serve as FBI director on a permanent basis," POLITICO Friday reported Friday.
"The four potential nominees to be interviewed are: acting FBI
Director Andrew McCabe, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), former Justice
Department Criminal Division Chief Alice Fisher and New York state
judge and former U.S. Attorney in Manhattan Michael Garcia...
FBI special agent in charge in Richmond, Adam Lee, also arrived for an
interview Saturday afternoon and officials said it was possible more
candidates would also be summoned," the report continued. "Henry E.
Hudson, U.S. District Court Judge for the Eastern District of Virginia,
Fran Townsend, former Homeland Security Adviser to former President
George W. Bush, and Mike Rogers, the former chairman of the House
Intelligence Committee, were also interviewed."
the fix isn't already in for a political appointment and that the
interviews aren't being scheduled for due diligence theater, they
should be looked at not only for law enforcement experience, but also
for past conduct, political support and sympathies, and most
importantly, for how their actions and philosophy have advanced the
whole purpose behind having a national government in the first place, as
set down in the Preamble to the Constitution:

form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic
Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general
Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our
That, of course, is done by
constraining authority to that which is delegated through enumerated
powers, something seemingly lost on those in power, and of little
concern to enough of our countrymen to allow usurpation and abuse to
be the rule instead of the exception.
So what can we
demonstrate or infer from Saturday's round of picks, with an eye toward
who has shown true faith and allegiance, particularly toward the right
to secure all others, the Second Amendment?
Acting Director McCabe's inclusion appears to be for the sake of form. His "F*** Trump" advocacy
would seem to be career-limiting for him to stay on at the Bureau after
the top slot is filled, particularly since the president is known to
insist on loyalty. So should citizens, and in this case, McCabe's ties to gun-grabbers Terry McCauliffe, Hillary Clinton and the Democrat party should disqualify him from serious consideration.
Sen. Cornyn gets a "B" from Gun Owners of America and an "A+" and endorsement from the National Rifle Association. Unfortunately, he fails the Numbers USA grade
on the tangentially-related "immigration/pathway to citizenship"
issues. Noting that all credible polls and all actual experience shows
that demographic votes overwhelmingly Democrat and anti-gun,
such destructive practices mean "progressive" control of legislatures
and courts. Look how quickly California morphed from being a state that
once elected Ronald Reagan.
