Justice Knew about Petraeus’s
Affair This Summer

National Review Online, by Patrick Brennan

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/12/2012 7:18:16 AM

The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal have new stories out tonight about the scandal which led to David Petraeus’s resignation on Friday, both hitting on one interesting point: Petraeus’s affair was known at the top levels of the Justice Department months ago. The Times explains that “high-level officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department were notified in the late summer.” The Journal story goes further, saying that Eric Holder himself “knew about the email link to Mr. Petraeus as far back as late summer,” timing the NYT deliberately leaves unclear.

I don´t get it. Clinton had sex in the oval office while on the phone with senators discussing sending our troops to war. The left tittered and snicked at how adorable this was. So why is someone in the CIA virtually fired for an affair? Will anyone speak up? If the senators and congresscritters don´t do something, the US will cease to exist. It´s close to that now.

Gosh, it´s just amazing how much information about this situation is coming out so quickly and easily. It´s almost like this information is being put out there purposely, in order to destroy Gen. Petraeus´s credibility. It´s almost like someone knew the General was going to blow the whistle on Obama´s treasonous behavior in Libya and decided he must be taken out. But that could never happen, the MSM would never be a party to something like that.

Once again Obama denies any knowledge. Besides Jarrett, who is running the Executive Branch?

This story is getting stuffed and puffed and plussed up and inflated so that it will be big enough and complicated enough to cover the crimes of Barky & Co.

The media doesn´t do complexity so the story goes away.

#2 has it correct. Just who is leaking all this info?

Just like Fast & Furious, Holder knew; but Obama pulls a Sgt Schultz - I know nothing.

Lends even more credibility that the situation room photo during Osama was also fake.

I believe Obama really does know nothing. The people around him are pulling the strings, mainly Axelgrease and Jarrett.

Huge dereliction of duty when state secrets could be at stake.Maybe Holder´s resigning to duck out on this.

What if any effect could this have had on the election outcome?

These radicals have no respect for the most obvious duties the government has.All they care about is having the power.

We still have another slew of job killing EPA and HHS regs coming,not to mention banks.

If you´re a white business or mortgage applicant,you´d better have some rich relatives for back up.

Poor Propagandist Axelclod must be tirelessly spinning. His new duties at the newly formed (with a huge giverment gift of millions) Chicago school of Propaganda for stupid young skulls full of mush, plus his destruction of Petraeus. Evil never seems to take a rest.

And Eric Holder kept this national security issue--not to mention hot gossip--item under his hat and didn´t tell Obama. Right.

The high achieving General David Howell Petraeus´s ( 39th out of 832 graduates in West Point´s Class of 1974 ) biggest mistake was accepting a high position in the most corrupt administration in American History.

This might not be restricted to Benghazi. Who in this country´s top levels of security would have the best access to everything related to BHO´s history, documents, passports, etc.? And wasn´t there some talk that Patraeus was considering running for prez on the GOP ticket? He had to be stopped. And the timing had to work perfectly.

This was all done on Chicago time. Not when it needed to be done, but saved until they needed it the most.

#9 I think hit the nail on the head - Petraeus should never have accepted the CIA position in Obama´s Administration. His wife Holly is also in the Administration. For all their smarts, they did a really dumb thing. When will people wake up - this Dem Resident is not like Carter, LBJ, JFK, Truman, or others way back. The Dem party was co-opted by George Soros and the likes of Valerie Jarrett, who probably takes her orders from GS.

When this is all over, and I believe it will be sometime - these Evil people must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

General George Washington had traitors executed. The Obama crowd are no better - it´s just Americans are stupidly forgiving. Personally I´d vote for a public hanging, especially for GS (why is he not behind bars?) and Valerie Jarrett - a probable Iranian spy and sympathizer. Maybe a hanging a la Mussolini and his mistress.

#15, could it be that petraeus was blackmailed by Val Jarrett into taking the CIA position, and he was there as the sacrificial anode? (obscure reference to saltwater boating)
They would have known that they could dump petraeus whenever there was a good enough reason. And Benghazi was the good enough reason.

No wonder, Patraeus did not open his mouth about the Benghazi scandal, later threw zippy under the bus and lied when deposed by the House Intelligence Committee! I wonder who threatened who first?

Why am I not surprised Erik the Red was in on this from day one? Is Holder still held in contempt by Congress, as much as he is by a majority of real Americans?

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:38:34 AM     Post Reply
Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history.

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
