Threats, explicit emails, and
sex under the desk come to
define Petraeus affair

Daily Caller, by Monique Hamm

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/11/2012 12:29:58 PM

New, unconfirmed details emerged on Saturday about how the FBI uncovered former CIA Director David Petraeus’ affair with one of his biographers, Paula Broadwell. The FBI reportedly received a complaint from a third party who claimed to have been the target of harassing emails from Broadwell. The agency’s investigation apparently broadened when it discovered that Broadwell or another individual may have attempted to access Petraeus’ email account. When the FBI looked further into the matter, according to the conservative website Newsmax, investigators found thousands of emails between the former general and Broadwell,

I know this ground has already been plowed, but I wanted to post this piece because the headline teaser on the main page is:

Oh, come on, OP. What you REALLY wanted was an excuse to throw in the metaphor about the ground already having been plowed. I can´t stop laughing.

Right you are, #2. The important news about Petraeus is NOT his affair. The old media keep on keeping on.

1. #2´s almost got it. The real questions [to which we know the answers] are how Obama and Hillary! spread our diplomats across the Muslim third world and left them intentionally unprotected.

The [moronic] idea of acquiescing to the "principle" of the "host" country "providing security" is OK in Britain, Germany, France -- but Libya? Etc.? A grip. Get one.

2. Now for something that matters -- the nut-job mullahs in Iran are still working to build a bomb! Can we please pretend to be responsible for a couple days and eradicate whatever we need to eradicate so that lunatic but very, very real threat goes far away [like, into the stratosphere as micro-particles?] for umpty-hundred years? After all, every American city has quite a lot that´s irreplaceable, including the citizens.

We know what they´re doing. We know their goals. If, G-d forbid, they do strike, our "leaders will be, IMHO, every bit as guilty as the mullahs, and should frankly pay the same price. In the docks; tried for treason; and hanged. Very promptly.

No. I´m not taking questions. They would be superfluous.

Don´t condone what the General did...stupid beyond belief. The double standard b/s is laughable....well it would be except for the socialist pig sitting in the oval office who is using this to squash the General´s testimony..I guess in o´s world adultery trumps murder..treason..

Freedom is Not Free

There may be something to the claim that all people want to be free. But it is a demonstrable fact that freedom has been under attack, usually successfully, for thousands of years. The Federal Communications Commission´s recent plan to have a "study" of how editorial decisions are made in the media, placing FCC bureaucrats in editorial offices across the country, was one of the boldest assaults on freedom of the press. Fortunately, there was enough backlash to force the FCC to back off. With all the sweeping powers available to government, displeasing FCC bureaucrats in editorial offices could have brought on armies

What is she on now? Kerry Kennedy, fresh off an acquittal in her drugged-driving case, stirred outrage from relatives of drunken driving victims Monday when she blasted Westchester County for its hard line in prosecuting boozy motorists. “I think it’s disgusting for her to say that, to try to pull the rug out from prosecutors trying to protect us from people like her,” Michael Flynn, who lost his 7-year-old daughter in a 2005 Lido Beach, L.I., drunken driving crash, told the Daily News. “Seems she’s upset she got treated like a normal citizen.” Kennedy, 54, said on NBC’s “Today” that

Opening a door to hedge his political bets, Sen. Rand Paul has asked the leader of the Kentucky Senate for legislation to ensure that Mr. Paul can run both for the White House and for re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2016, The Washington Times has learned. “Yes, I am working on clarifying an ambiguous state law that Rand Paul believes is unconstitutional if it is interpreted to bar running for re-election to the Senate and for president at the same time,” Kentucky Senate Majority Leader Damon Thayer told The Times on Monday. “The purpose of the bill will be

Will Senate Confirm Cop-Killer Advocate?

Last month the Senate Judiciary Committee approved the nomination of Debo Adegbile to head the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. The vote broke along party lines, 10-to-8. Over the weekend Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania became the first Democrat to oppose Adegbile. “I will not vote to confirm the nominee,” he said. A cloture vote scheduled for Monday has (because of the snowstorm) been postponed to Wednesday. With Casey’s announcement, Adegbile can no longer be assured that Democratic senators will uniformly support him. Indeed, the question now is whether other Democrats will follow Casey’s lead. It would take six Democrats

The following five questions are sure to be answered. The first primary election of 2014 will happen in Texas on Tuesday. Lone Star State voters will go to the polls in a series of primaries that will measure Tea Party fervor as well as whether Democrats have made the most basic organizational strides in the state.

Vladimir Putin has taken the measure of Barack Obama. He’s found Jimmy Carter. Like Jimmy Carter, who boasted he was free of any “inordinate fear of communism,” Obama began his term as president vowing to “reset” relations with Russia. Like Jimmy Carter, who conveyed weakness when Iran took our embassy staff hostage, Obama confirmed his own weakness when he drew a red line in Syria and then backed down from enforcing it. Like Jimmy Carter, who was rewarded by Leonid Brezhnev with a Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, Putin has returned Obama’s favor with a Russian invasion of Ukraine. And just like Carter, who responded

We now know — even the Associated Press, better described as the Administration’s Press, has now acknowledged it — that President Barack Obama, in AP’s words, “did not participate” in a White House meeting of his national security team Saturday morning “to get updates on the situation and discuss policy options” in reaction to Russia’s invasion and takeover of Crimea and threatened military intervention in the rest of Ukraine. Those who need help getting past AP’s whitewashing need to understand that “did not participate” means “did not attend.” Last time I checked, the president of the United States was the nation’s

How the ‘Realists’ Misjudged Ukraine
Daily Beast, by James Kirchick    Original Article

The paradox at the heart of foreign policy realism, is that the same, all-powerful West which is capable of overthrowing governments with the flip of a switch is incapable of confronting Russian hard power. On May 31, 1989, President George H.W. Bush delivered a speech in Mainz, West Germany entitled “A Europe Whole and Free.” Bush envisioned a continent composed of democratic states shorn of the Cold War division that had scarred Europe for over 40 years. Seven months later, the Berlin Wall collapsed, sparking the downfall of communist dictatorships across Central and Eastern Europe and the collapse of the Soviet

THE COMMON wisdom holds that the GOP 2016 presidential race will boil down to a joust between the “establishment” and the “insurgents.” The former will allegedly be more moderate and the latter more conservative. Since most polls for two decades have shown that around two-thirds to 70 percent of self-described Republicans call themselves conservative, this elite narrative will focus on just how much the establishment candidate will need to be pulled to the right in order to fend off his insurgent challenger. And since the Tea Party has clearly become a vocal and powerful insurgent element in the GOP, the

Feds Provide Billions to UAE Airline
that Removed Israel From Its Maps

The federal government has provided more than a billion dollars in loan guarantees since 2009 to an Arab airline that has literally wiped Israel off the map. Etihad Airways, a United Arab Emirates-based airline, scrubbed any mention of Israel or its major cities from a map showing its travel routes in the area. Etihad receives $425,000 annually from the Department of Homeland Security, the New York Post reported on Monday. But those subsidies are a fraction of U.S. taxpayer support for the company. The Export-Import Bank, a U.S. federal agency that subsidizes purchases of American products abroad, has backed loans worth nearly $1.3

   

 



 
If Given Control, McConnell
Vows a Senate in Working Order

WASHINGTON — Senator Mitch McConnell still has a few obstacles to overcome to become Senate majority leader next year. First, he has to win his own primary and general election back in Kentucky, where his popularity has suffered. Then his fellow Republicans have to pick up at least six seats for the party to take over the Senate for the first time since 2006. It is not inconceivable at this point, and Mr. McConnell has been giving considerable thought to how he would run the Senate if given the chance. Spoiler alert: It is not how he thinks it is being

On the centenary of World War I, Europe´s suddenly facing a crisis of Russian aggression. Why NATO must make a show of strength and reassure its Eastern members. Ever since Russia’s not-so-stealthy invasion of the Crimea in Ukraine at the end of the week, rhetoric has rung out in Washington and in Europe like a call to arms. Except that it’s not—or not yet. “There will be costs,” said President Barack Obama. Secretary of State John Kerry upped the ante, condemning “the invasion and occupation of Ukrainian territory.” NATO called an emergency meeting on Sunday to address “Russia’s military action in Ukraine.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.

WASHINGTON—Police arrested hundreds of people who strapped themselves to the White House fence on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline. The protesters were mostly college students who participated in a peaceful march that began at Georgetown University and ended outside the White House. They chanted "climate justice now" and carried signs with slogans such as "don´t tarnish the earth" in an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline. They say it will worsen global warming. Protesters were passionate but quite orderly. Police were waiting for them with buses and vans to speed the process.
