Pelosi Blasts GOP Calls
For State Department Probe

CNN, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/9/2012 6:23:05 PM

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blasted House Republicans Tuesday for requesting a hearing next week on the State Department's handling of last month's deadly consulate attack in Libya. With Congress in recess for the campaign season, Pelosi argued on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer" that if the GOP wants to look into the Libya issue, they should return for votes on other pending legislation, as well. "We're supposed to be in session this week, but they've canceled it rather than passing a middle income tax cut, passing a jobs bill, passing the Violence Against Women Act

It's telling that she thinks what they're "supposed to be" doing is more feel-good, election year nonsense that won't accomplish anything.

"U.S. officer got no reply to requests for more security in Benghazi"

For this headline, they would have initiated articles of impeachment had Bush been president. Then again, no such event would have occured had Bush been president because those terrorists know he would have gone ape you know what postal on them.

In the meanwhile, Pelosi does not consider this worthy of investigation. The woman is sick. Let's see, what was her guy doing as calls for help were ignored:

a. He was on the 18th green holding a putter.
b. He was chumming it up in hollywood with Clooney and pals.
c. No, he was anxiously awaiting the start of the NFL season and doing fantasy league picks.

Pick one, you won't go wrong with your selection.

This POS is concerned with what she call the Violence Against Women Act. The Senate version differs with what the House would consider. Note...although it has a nice name.. the Act proposed deals with American Indians, illegal immigrants, and homosexuals and transgendered individuals.

That is different from what the name of the Act implies.

Note... Pelosi really does not want the House to conduct hearing on violence against United States Ambassadors.

You remember... in the past few weeks we have had four US people murdered by terrorists in Libya... after ... after seeking protection from our government...which was denied.

But hey... let's talk about Big Bird instead.

Weird “blast.”
Pelosi acknowledges that this oversight is part of their job, but thinks a month is not enough time for the State Department to figure out what happened? She really thinks passing unspecified “middle class tax cut” and “jobs” bills during recess is more important than performing legitimate oversight on a mishandled terrorist attack on American soil? Loon.

DAYTON — A disturbing internet "game" has made it to Dayton. The "Knockout Game" has become viral, where people record themselves punching complete and unaware strangers.

A North Korean security minister has been executed by flame-thrower on orders of the country’s leader Kim Jong-un. It would take the death-toll purges carried out by dictator Jong-un to at least 12 since he took power as Supreme Leader after the death of his father three years ago. Deputy Public Security Minister O Sang-hon, was “executed by flame-thrower,” because of links to Kim’s own uncle - killed by firing squad and whose body was allegedly fed to starving dogs.

Democrats slam ´offensive´
Pelosi image on Breitbart site
USA Today, by Catalina Camia    Original Article
Posted By: Scottyboy- 4/7/2014 4:34:06 PM     Post Reply
The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

Hillary Clinton´s Phantom Presence

Hillary Clinton´s phantom presence in the Democratic presidential-nomination stakes—neither in nor out—is freezing the rest of the field, creating formidable obstacles for other candidates needing to raise money and set up an organization. When advisers to a fundraising group backing a prospective 2016 Clinton bid came calling in late January, hedge-fund manager and political heavyweight Orin Kramer said he met them in his New York office and agreed to write a check. When another potential candidate, Maryland Gov. Martin O´Malley, tried to reach him, Mr. Kramer said he didn´t take the call. "She´s Gladys Knight and all the rest of

The professor who refused to sign last week’s high-profile UN climate report because it was too ‘alarmist’, has told The Mail on Sunday he has become the victim of a smear campaign. Richard Tol claims he is fighting a sustained attack on his reputation by a key figure from a leading institution that researches the impact of global warming. Prof Tol said: ‘This has all the characteristics of a smear campaign. It’s all about taking away my credibility as an expert.’ Prof Tol, from Sussex University, is a highly respected climate economist and one of two ‘co-ordinating lead authors’ of an important chapter

Here’s a situation where a black woman in the White House could make a difference. Earlier this week, the U.S. Army released its new appearance and grooming regulations, AR 670-1, and it was a real burn for African-American female soldiers. The updated rules ban twists, multiple braids bigger than a quarter of an inch in diameter, and dreadlocks of any size. Cornrows also can’t be bigger than a quarter of an inch. As of Wednesday afternoon, nearly 8,000 people had signed a petition calling on President Barack Obama to order the Army to reconsider the regulations because they are “racially biased.” The petition

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande.

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal. "They have demonstrated the law can work, but we are a ways off from being able to judge its success," said Larry Levitt, an expert on health insurance markets
