Is Feinstein an Ally for
Benghazi Truth-Seekers?

PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 11/15/2012 1:39:00 PM

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has shown a renewed post-election feistiness over the scandal swirling around former CIA Director David Petraeus that could translate to holding the administration accountable for this and the Benghazi scandal. Freshly re-elected to another six-year term and pushing 80 years old, Feinstein would have little to lose by not doing the White House’s bidding — pressure that was evident when she backed off from claims that the executive branch was leaking sensitive information. “I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks,” Feinstein said in an address at the

Don´t jump on the intro, please. Read the article in which Johnson develops the possibility that Feinstein and her Senate Intel Committee co-chair Saxby Chambliss could bring some truth to this sordid situation.

Benghazi is too serious for kneejerk thinking or posting.

Benghazi is serious. However, feinstein is not. She has a track record of staging publicity stunts in an effort to look fair minded and non-partisan. Then after the publicity wears off, she quietly backs away and returns to her lock-step liberal ways.

DiFi could be after the truth. She has NOT said that she wants to determine the facts of Benghazi. She wants to get the facts on the Petraeus sex scandal and FBI investigation. If she´s really on the level with this, she will also get to the bottom of the Benghazi matter, and inform the public.

It is, however, equally likely that she is only angry that her power and authority was disrespected by the Administration, in not informing her of the FBI investigation. Or, she could simply be stunned by the bold actions 0bama took in destroying Petraeus for purely political purposes.

I´ve seen Feinstein do the right thing before, not often, but more than most Democrats. The testimony is secret for now.

I´d forgotten Jane Harman was still in the House. Pelosi really did a number on her.

Ever notice how Diane Feinstein resembles Lucy in the Peanuts comics (same hairdo, anyway)? Well, like Lucy, she has pulled the football trick many times on Republicans--acting as if she would support them on some issue and then pulling away at the last minute. I´m willing to wait and see, but I rather doubt she would do anything to undermine Obama and her party, no matter how important the issue.

DiFi is a DEMOCRAT. She is no more committed to the best interests of the Country than any other democrat, which is to say not at all.
"Uh, General, call me SENATOR I´ve WORKED very hard for that title...."

Take my word for it, I´ve worked on the inside of NJ democrat politics.........democrats HATE America and Americans.

The "Extended Childhood" created by the staggering wealth created in 20th Cent. America may well be to blame.
Foolish, juvenile ideas seem to remain fashionable well beyond where they might have to earlier generations. But.....

Don´t worry.

The coming hardships will shape these folks right up !

I agree with #6. Feinstein has done the right thing at times. She may be a Democrat and she may have her negative points but she has done some good things in the past. While I never would vote for her, she is better than Boxer. Anyway, that said, it is well known that there is a rift between Feinstein and Obama. If this can chew into Obama, I am sure Feinstein wants to know.

#10, that was Barbara Boxer who demanded to be called "Senator"....not Feinstein. Please don´t mix them up. Boxer is a carpetbagger and an complete airhead.

Yeah Boxer is utterly stupid and useless; DiFi has a lot of money, a little patriotism, and sometimes does the right thing. At least until somebody tells her to stop. And she will, of course, protect Hillary at all costs.

The National Security Agency has eyes and ears everywhere. At least, so we thought. In 2012, during a classified but widely-known operation at Fort Meade, MD, government crypotographers and developers downloaded the OpenSSL source code, as it does with dozens of other software published on the Web. The operation´s objective was to find weaknesses in the library and exploit those vulnerabilities as part of wider efforts by the intelligence agency to conduct mass-scale surveillance. Executives and senior officials heralded it as one of the biggest vulnerability discoveries in the intelligence agency´s recent

Mickey Rooney´s legacy includes raising
awareness of financial elder abuse

The legacy of Mickey Rooney, who died on April 6 in California at age 93, goes far beyond the silver screen. The prolific film star did a service for millions of elderly in this country by helping to publicize the scourge of financial elder abuse. Whether it´s fraudulent sweepstakes phone calls, investments, grandparent scams, or the far more insidious deceptions by neighbors, friends, employees, and relatives, such exploitation is rampant and on the rise.(Snip) In September 2011, Rooney´s court-appointed conservator, Michael.

Los Angeles - A shallow 5.1-magnitude earthquake rocked the Los Angeles area Friday causing power cuts, gas leaks and bursting water mains, and stopping rides at Disneyland. While no injuries were reported, objects fell from shelves and furniture toppled over, according to photos posted on social media, while TV pictures showed a car flipped over by a rockslide.

These should be avoidable Measles has made a comeback, at least in New York City, where as many as 19 cases have been confirmed. New York City isn’t an anomaly, though. Diseases that are and have been avoidable in the U.S. thanks to vaccines, are resurfacing all across the country. Measles, for instance, was considered wiped out in 2000, but there have been several outbreaks in the past few years.

L´Wren Scott was found dead on Monday in her New York City apartment. The fashion designer, who has been dating Mick Jagger since 2001, was found hanged to death. She was 49. According to authorities, the body of L´Wren Scott was discovered hanging from a scarf on a doorknob by her assistant around 10 a.m. in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan. Preliminary reports suggest a suicide and foul play is not suspected; however, the medical examiner will determine a cause of death.

If the news last month that the prevalence of obesity among American preschoolers had plunged 43 percent in a decade sounded too good to be true, that´s because it probably was, researchers say. When the study was published in late February in the Journal of the American Medical Association, no one had a ready explanation for that astounding finding by researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.(Snip) Anti-obesity campaigners credited everything from changes to the federal nutrition program for low-income women and children to the elimination of trans-fats from fast food, more physical activity in child-care

The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., founder of the hate-fueled Westboro Baptist Church, is at “the edge of death,” his son reports. Nathan Phelps, who fled the infamous Kansas church more than 30 years ago, claims his notorious father was kicked out of the congregation he built and is now spending his final days in hospice care. “I´ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the "God Hates (deleted to clear site filter)" Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the ‘church’ back in August of 2013,” Nathan Phelps wrote on Facebook. “He is now on the edge of death at

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
