Double Standards

Timothy Birdnow

Here is a story that got me thinking; a county board member in outstate Illinois is being charged with felony charges for putting a tracking device on a highway department employee's car.

From the Belleville News Democrat article:

Nordike, 52, of Aviston, was charged with official misconduct, a Class 3 felony, and unlawful use of an electronic tracking device, a Class A misdemeanor. His first appearance in court is scheduled June 18 for a preliminary hearing.

Charging documents state that Nordike is accused of tracking Ron Becker, who works in the county highway department, through the county car he drives.

Why did he do it? Well, he wanted accountability:

"Mr. Nordike campaigned for the position of Clinton County Board member on a platform of fiscal accountability to the taxpayers of Clinton County by the officials and employees of Clinton County,” the statement read. "Since first taking his oath of office, Mr. Nordike has strived to fulfill that campaign promise.

"It should come as no surprise that, in pursuit of that objective, Mr. Nordike has ruffled some feathers within the county, and he has encountered some resistance.”

Nordike declined to comment further on the charges when reachAnyed by phone Friday. According to the statement, he pleaded not guilty.

My guess is he knew this individual was not doing his or her job and he wanted to prove it.

So why is this interesting? A local county board member may well go to prison for spying on employees, but the very top of our national security and law enforcement apparatus - men like John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, James Baker, Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller, etc. can spy on a Presidential candidate and then set out to destroy him when he becomes President, and we are supposed to just ignore that. Why does a low level guy get held to strict account but not the top brass?


They used a fake dossier produced by a British spy and commissioned by Trump's opponent Hillary Clinton to justify getting a warrant to spy on Trump and have used the last two years to completely paralyze the Trump Administration with endless accusations and sent numerous people to jail or worse to hide their crimes.

Joesph Goebbles would understand; a small lie will not do - you have to tell the Big Lie.
