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

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.

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 Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
