White House, Congress scrutinize
FBI’s inquiry into Petraeus

Washington Post, by Greg Miller and Sari Horwitz

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/14/2012 11:02:28 PM

The FBI’s handling of the investigation that forced CIA Director David H. Petraeus to resign came under new scrutiny Wednesday as FBI Director Robert S. Mueller faced questions on Capitol Hill and President Obama alluded to lingering questions about the course of the inquiry. In his first public comments on the controversy, Obama said he has seen no evidence that the scandal exposed classified information that might harm national security. But he stopped short of approving the FBI’s handling of the inquiries into the personal e-mail communications of Petraeus and

A couple of observations.

1) To point out after he fact that no information impacting national security was revealed does not make the situation just a harmless personal matter. The very fact that this was the Director of the CIA automatically makes it a national security matter. Such liaisons should not be acceptable or viewed as harmless.

2) Those who believe that Petraeus is now "free" to tell the whole truth are mistaken. And they missed a very telling clue why from the initial revelations. Namely, it was reported that when Petraeus was first confronted about this, he was told there would be "no criminal charges." Really? Nobody is in a position to guarantee that. What was really being done was to drop an implied threat...play ball with us and there won´t be criminal charges. That´s a huge thing to plant in his head right off the bat. And you can bet it will be on his mind when he testifies.

Too many cases of "the protocols made me do it."

This "crazy-ruddered" FBI makes me long for J. Edgar Hoover.

Since we are now exposing security leaks, isn´t it time to find out about Obama´s rumored gay sex secrets in Chicago and where ever Reggie Love is? Have you googled obama + man country? How about the story of the rape before murder of Chris Stephens? This disaster is only starting to roll out. Obama could be impeached if this treachery is proven.

Sadly this scandal of epic proportions will burn itself out and I don´t believe any criminal action will be taken by anyone. The Feds have been getting away with everything, including murder, for years. Our government is corrupt at all levels.

Riddle me this -- why was a lebanese woman, the kelly woman, talking to General Allen while he was in the war theater.....?

During WWII -- alllllll communication with military was censored....because of security....

AND -- the obama boys and the iranian woman jarrettttt -- want to make john kerry -- one of the most disliked by the military people -- secretary of defense? I guess another "revenge" moment for the zero president....along with susan priceless secretary of state?

Is this another "revenge" move for the pathetic president who is into self/loathing. Looks like Americans will suffer under his black hand for the crimes his mother and her stud and his left/leaning grandparents -- who raised a woman, his mother, with no moral compass -- gave to US via faulty electronic voting machines manaufactured in china.

AND -- WE are surprised????

One would think that with so much attention being shown toward a little extra sex between two straight individuals with concern toward a possible scandal hurting national security, it follows that the same attention should be given toward Hussein Obama , Reggie Love, Wright, Rahm (dead fish) Emanuel, and all of the other people participating in the homosexual activities if their major concern is national security.

Scrutinize ? I guess they are still scrutinizing Fast and Furious too. No one will stand up for those killed in either blantant cover up . obama is free to destroy any of our very lives if he so chooses and No One will stop him. To see such a great nation destroyed by such an empty suit who´s only true emotion seems to be hatred of hard working Americans is such a tragedy. He is ´treading´ on all of us who believe in honor and America´s greatness!

here´s what puzzles me - either the Broadwell affair affected national security, in which case the President should have been told, or else it didn´t, in which case he needn´t have been fired. Best answer I can produce: It didn´t affect national security, so they didn´t tell the President. Real issue was simplythat they didn´t like the way he talked about Benghazi, so telling the president could indeed wait. And Petraeus simply could not believe this would be done. Asked for mtg with President - learned that, indeed, it would be done.

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
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

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
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

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

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

For Hillary Clinton and Boeing,
a beneficial relationship
Washington Post, by Rosalind S. Helderman    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/13/2014 10:13:05 PM     Post Reply
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, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. 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. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
