David and Bathsheba
PJ Media, by Michael Walsh

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/10/2012 4:25:47 AM

Ever since the September 11 attack on our consulate and CIA station in Benghazi, “the dog in the night-time” of the scandal the media did its best to bury during the election campaign has been David Petraeus, the Iraq War commander turned spook-in-almost-chief. Throughout the orgy of misinformation, disinformation, finger-pointing, blame-shifting and general confusion, Petraeus remained adamantly silent, a hostage to fortune somewhere within the bowels of the CIA building in Langley. The one man who could have cut through the administration’s fog machine said nothing substantive as ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were laid to rest.

This story illustrates why all of a sudden General P came clean.He knows the truth behind Benghazi and could bury Obama with it.It could be Obama dirtdiggers who looked for blackmail to use on him.

Of course the rest of Obama´s stooges won´t have a problem lying and double talking before congress,unless they turn up dead somewhere.

It´s the Obama/Jarrett/Axelrod way. If someone doesn´t play ball or gets in their way, the Chicago thugs will destroy him/her in every way they can. Look what they did to Cain, the interview with Newt´s second wife. Go back further to when Obama was running for Senator. And the MSM protects their dirty work.

I can´t imagine after a lifetime of serving the country as he did, that he can be just thrown away or hidden. I always questioned why he would have agreed to this video story .... It just didn´t smell right. Now we know why. This administration is so corrupt, it astounding . Surely there are some decent democrats left in the senate that will start to wake up and realize they are being used just like anyone else that may get in the way. How long can they continue to stall. 4 years is a long time.

Bathsheba seems to be a well-connected Democrat, serving as host of a party at the DNC convention for wounded military, and as a "national security analyst," she may have been familiar with Clapper and Donilon. Judging from a clip of an interview, she seems quite friendly with Jon Stewart too. Things that cause one to say hmmmm.
Her "co-author," Vernon Loeb, did the majority of the research and actually writing of the book, I would bet.
I doubt this is all the O crowd has on the General. There are probably videos.

I´m willing to bet that this particular Bathsheba was working for Team O. Maybe they had something on her and blackmailed her into doing the David deed. This whole business is like something out of a Grisham novel -- like "The Firm."

If Gen P was doing her in Afganistan, I can probably overlook that. She pulls a Monica under the desk (see story) and writes about him.
Lots of military "go native" when away from home and the wives know it.

However, he should have been smart enough to see she became an Axelrod operative.

blackmail only works if the victim is willing to pay to keep information secret. an extramartial affair is only a security risk if it can be used as a lever to gain access to classified material or decisions. When General Petraeus comes out and resigns, stating publicly that he had an affair, he has foiled the blackmail and shut down the security risk. I think he put a thumb in somebody´s eye who thought they could pressure him.

No. 4. To your point about any decent Democrats left. I considerd a similar thought during the Lewinsky saga: wasn´t there ANYONE in Bill Clinton´s inner circle of advisers or political appointees who would stand and speak out about the wrongs being carried out. I calculated that statistically, someone would step up. Zero. Zilch. Nada.
And, nothing has changed. The character of these people is numbing.

There is another way to look at this and #14 is on to it. Jarrett no doubt is behind this (she is actually the President). If she told Petraeus ´either keep your mouth shut or we will out your little affair and destroy your career and your marriage´ it could be that he took Option B. He doesn´t need the gutless morons in Congress to subpoena him for this to come out. Stay tuned.

So Obama/Jarrett knew before they appointed Petraeus that he had the affair and had the scandal card to play whenever needed. I have long had a suspicion that everyone holding an important office in the government has a scandal in their closet that is known in advance so that they can be removed when the king needs to. Petraeus should be subpoenaed and testify. He should testify because he knows things that need to come out - the affair/resignation is irrelevant.

Remember Vince Foster died without blood pooling round his body in that Washinton DC park? No one knows WHERE -- but suspect the White House.... Wonder where hubbel is these days? Anyone????

The thing about blackmail is that it only works if the secret dirt remains secret. The power is in the THREAT of disclosure and the target can free himself from the blackmailer´s clutches any time he wants simply by disclosing it himself. Did Petraeus refuse to be blackmailed and free himself? Even honorable men may make mistakes, but honorable men own up to them. Perhaps that is what Gen. Petraeus just did.

Numbers of reliable persons are saying he will testify - in either closed classiied hearing or an open one - voluntarily or under subpoena. Let´s see if the mendacious Obama administration plays the old "executive privilege" gambit. It will publicly display, once again, that they are very, very afraid.

Those who dismiss his testifying, that he´s "fallen on his sword", that this is just another tawdry affair story, ho hum, might want to do some more reading and listening.

Yes, indeed. " Get Smart" (before political correctness) needs to be revisited to get a grip on this tangled mess.

The CIA and the FBI=layers upon convoluted layers in their own organizations: Keeping each other in check and off balance with the knowledge gained from the security investigations. Mike Baker? Red Eye guest appearance? Soon?

Normal practice in a govt with integrity is to have background checks of personnel to see if they are clean and cannot be blackmailed. This regime looks for people who are dirty so that they can exercise the blackmail control over them. This is yet another example of this regime puts its own goals above the good of the nation as a whole.

Reading the ´must reads´ today, the phrase "low information voter" keeps ringing in my head. Even if info about Benghazi and Fast & Furious and the drone hadn´t been buried, we´d still be facing four more years of the most corrupt administration in history....the "47%" wouldn´t pay attention to what Obama did or didn´t do. It was only important that they were promised their free stuff paid for by the ´rich.´

I have a crazy conspiracy theory on this one.
Hillary hated petraeus, called him a liar at a senate hearing - ´suspension of disbelief´ about Iraq war.
This could be her double edged revenge. Out him and his horndog behavior, take over his position at CIA, run for president in 2016 with an enhanced bio.
Not too far fetched, in my opinion. But if she was involved in this matter, I suspect that the president zero insiders will manage to knock her off, maybe with photos of hillary and huma abedin, sharpening their cunnilingus skills...

agree with #14. They tried to use something for leverage - he has emptied their bag right onto the table in front of everybody, and has removed himself from their service. It must be the outcome they least wanted. He has punished Bathsheba, if it comes to that. Married with two children -very well, let them read about what happened. Sometimes humility turns the tables. Congress can still subpoena him if they want. I would go ahead and try. He is a patriot.

Now watch for the new standard - sexual affairs will become the most disqualifying thing possible - anyone who cheats on his wife cannot tell us what he knows about Benghazi. A new pharisaical double standard!

Since when has any democrat been "asked" to resign over an "affair"? Since when does having an "affair" render someone unable to testify? Does any of this make any sense? Other than Obama and his handlers are looking for someone to take the blame. Ask his good Chicago friends and convicted felons sitting in prison, Rezko & his Illinois idol, Blagojevich.

Obama will appoint a fellow traveler to replace Petraeus. All paper trails will be destroyed if they haven´t already. My guess is Petraeus and his entire family have been threatened. Benghazi will go away and Obama will have gotten away with murder. Expect more such scenarios. Its what dictators do.

Patreaus may very well be a hero for his handling of Iraq, but for love of country, he should have resigned before the election and before the last debate. Blow the thing up when there was still a chance to influence the election. But, he chose to wait until after the election. If Romney was elected perhaps this would not have come to light. Nothing heroic here, ladies and gentlemen. We can only hope he redeems himself and sings like a bird.

Also, my conspiracy theory re the Clintons, is that Little Joey Biden has another minor stroke, resigns and Hillary steps in as VP. This happens, I don´t know, a year from now and then that makes her the heir apparent and allows her to campaign for president for the next 3 years from the White House. No Dem primary, the first woman, blah, blah, blah. That was the deal that Billy made to support Zero to the degree he did.

Excellent article and conclusion. As his final public act, Petraeus should follow the example of Nathan Hale and "give it all up" for his country. One way or another, he will be permanently "terminated" by the Chicago gang. He simply knows too much. His best "insurance" is to tell all - now. Forget the pension, forget being disciplined, forget prison, forget all personal consequences. Take one for your country. Get on it, Chaffetz and Issa.

As others have pointed out you neutralize the blackmale threat by outing yourself. Which he did. I suspect he has been threatened. This threat will never go away.
Now may be the only chance for him to get the upper hand and protect his family by using the hearings to let everyone know that unexplained death or injury to a family member points right to the white house. Reread Valerie Jarret´s statementjust before the election "Your either with us or against us....."

I´ve said from day two of Benghazi-gate to my husband that Ambassador Stevens was Uriah, hung out to dry. Petraeus, however, is not King David. He is Joab - a tool of the administration and now we know why he was so impotent to stand against evil schemes and why CIA was doing their international dirty work. Just my take - sadly.

This seems wildly appropriate about now:

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
And she tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah...

(Yeah but) Baby I´ve been here before
I´ve seen this room and I´ve walked this floor, (You
know)
I used to live alone before I knew ya
And I´ve seen your flag on the marble arch
and love is not a victory march
It´s a cold and it´s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah...

I think it all comes from a lack of respect for the pathetic leadership. Can you imagine being a highly competent, decorated and intelligent Army general having to report to a snot-nosed punk like Barack Obama? Me neither. I would not have accepted a post in his regime in the first place.

FTA: "...[One possibility is that] Petraeus confessed to his own “honey trap” and handed Valerie Jarrett, the Javert of Obama’s White House, a termination card, effective whenever she and the president cared to play it. And play it they did, right after the election and just before his testimony on the Hill. Well played, indeed.

I´ve been shouting this from the rooftops. IF this was, in fact, a "honey trap" -- then WHO set the honey trap?

Valerie Jarrett? or Vladimir Putin?

Bad as the corruption, incompetence, and even possible betrayal that were covered-up in Benghazi, it seems to me there is an enormous separate issue here:
The possible penetration, by enemy agents, of the highest level of our national security agency. Pun intended.

Will people please get a grip. Nothing repeat NOTHING absolves him from his DUTY to testify about Benghazi.

A honey trap? She is a stinkin author. They had face time together and she serviced him a few times.

She aint a Bond girl. He had opportunity and he did it. Period. Do not blame the Dems. This does nothing to absolve their guilt.

We may well get some months overdue Benghazi satisfaction if Petraeus speaks, but in our current Low Information country, it won´t matter much.

Chicago-style fingerprints all over this one. They might even have set it up (she is a loyal Democrat, after all).

All the above complaints are true, in my opinion. But don´t lose hope - remember that Obama is an incompetent leader.

There will be many other similar episodes in the Bamster´s next 4 years. He just can´t help himself.

The degree of cynical corruption present in the Democrat party and particularly in Obama is truly breathtaking. And much of the public will likely not care about Benghazi (it´s just so darned difficult to spell that they´ll just ignore it).
Many Americans, obsessed with "getting theirs above all else", will continue to support their Sugar Daddy as he punishes job creators and intentionally diminishes America. America greatly deserves this perpetual enema at the hands of the Democrats. Many recipients even enjoy it...

A national nightmare & quagmire. It all has Adolph Axelrod’s fingerprints all over it as well. He is a 24/7 conniver of political mischief. Oh what tangled webs we weave. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Psalm 2:4. We are not a nation that is extolling righteousness currently and we are paying a dear price. The enemies of western democracy see us as a crumbling empire and they are going to strike. We have the greatest nuclear arsenal in the world but our feet are made of soft clay. A nation whose people extol Obamaphones, SSI, and food stamps will not prevail in this world’s climate. Not Jeramiah Wrights God d**n America but God have mercy on America now!

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:55:20 PM     Post Reply
President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“Am I going to be an outcast?” A friend, who recently moved to an upscale neighborhood in Madison, Wis., called me last week to ask if she would be able to make mommy friends if she continued feeding her children — gasp! — non-organic food. She had just come back from the park where two mothers were discussing a recent vacation to a resort in Puerto Rico. One told the other that there, for the first time, her toddler was given Jif peanut butter. He loved it. Prior to that he had only had Whole Foods peanut butter, which (one might

White House asks American parents to
monitor their children for signs of terrorism

Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:50:04 PM     Post Reply
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

In Elizabeth Warren’s new book, A Fighting Chance, Warren claims to be “hurt and angry” that people criticized her claim to be Native American, specifically Cherokee. Warren blamed the Scott Brown campaign, the local Republican Party, and “some blogger.” In fact, Warren has no one to blame but herself for her false claim to be Cherokee.

Reflecting on Kelo nine years later

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread. "We are the New York Yankees of table tennis," said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. "Everybody hates our guts."

On upcoming trip, Obama

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

Rapist’s painting hung in the White House

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

Martinez and the War on GOP Women
Commentary Magazine, by Jonathan S. Tobin    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:01:50 AM     Post Reply
One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it. How would American Indian

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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.

Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

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

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

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
