Seven Against Thebes: A Cautionary Tale Regarding the F.B.I.


From The Last English Prince:
“A Review of Various Actions by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice in Advance of the 2016 Election” can be found on the link: 
IG Report 
The Last English Prince has not yet tackled the report. It will require several trays of snacks and an array of drinks. So there is the disclosure. smile But having read what is available on-line and chatted up by media pundits, my opinion is based on a topic which is near to my heart – the value of taking an oath of office. 
And while Strzok and Page sounds like a real estate firm, the identified agents and those merely noted as agents with numerical designation seemed engaged in tampering with the real estate of the Republic. 
They may not represent “Seven Against Thebes” but they do represent the underbelly of an agency which has in single-handed manner eroded the public trust for the institution. 
Back Story: 
It was calamitous of course. The power-sharing arrangement between the Executive Branch and Houses of Congress had been rocking along in predictable manner for quite some time. 
We “voted” and the rest was left to the wizardry of the power-brokers inside the Beltway. It was when George W. entered his second term that many began to understand the erosive nature of the political winds which shaped our nation. 2016: 
Jeb Bush was to be “our man” – a man who looked in need of a taxidermy consult because he had lost all animation. The man was fifty-shades-of-beige – but pliable for political exploitation. 
Hillary Clinton was meant to be our “lady” – a nice plug-in to follow our “first black American President”. Unfortunately, the lady was fifty-shades-of-noir (regarding criminal instincts). 
But then Donald Trump took the nation by storm. The oath-takers convened in Thebes. Instead of success, they have been confronted with disaster. 
The fatal character flaw is thus: The one who takes the oath does not own the Republic. Rather, the Republic owns the men and women who take the oath. The Republic does not serve our political desires and need. The oath-taker subjugates both need and political whim to the will of the state. 
There is no greater need in a true Republic than that of unimpeded political process which allows voters to cast a vote for the President and consequently live with the results of the same. 
Humility is the requirement for those who take an oath. And this humility should be the bedrock for all who wield an official shield. Eteocles and Polynices met their deaths at the Seventh Gate. 
It is a cautionary tale for those who take an oath and handle it in such tawdry manner. The Seventh Gate has been opened. The bodies will be displayed. And our nation will not fracture. The State of our Union will remain strong.

The Never Trumpers and the GOPe will not allow for that. Period. Full stop.
