Panetta: ´I´m Reading the
Papers Like You Are´ to
Learn More About Petraeus

Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/13/2012 10:10:28 AM

Speaking with reporters on a flight to Perth, Australia Monday, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was asked about the scandal engulfing Gen. David Petraeus, the man who replaced Panetta as CIA director. Is there any indication that Petraeus´ affair with Paula Broadwell started while he was on active duty in Afghanistan, and if so, would Panetta make the decision to prosecute him? "You know, I don´t know. I don´t know the answer to that," Panetta said. "I guess I´m reading the papers like you are to determine just what the (intelligence) committee finds out, what the

Didn´t Clinton use this same excuse when needed? "I didn´t know anything about this until I read it in the papers!" His administration was the dry run for this group and any future Dem administration.

"I´m reading the papers like you are."
What???
So much for internal investigations.
Is Patraeus not still a soldier?
Why was it that Panetta and Patraeus swapped jobs anyway?

This is such a farce. Leon is a moron and is one of the most untrustworthy people in America, a real snake. HE KNEW EVERYTHING.

And now Obama wants to replace Panetta with the liar John Kerry! Talk about out of the frying pan into the fire!

The only reason leon panetta was given the job of Defense Secretary is that he is a clown. Every picture of him shows his hyena-like expression looking like a hysterical comedy watcher, and yet some STILL wonder why he doesn´t know anything about anything? Seriously?

They ALL continue to LIE. Is there not ONE person in this administration who has a conscience and will come forward and blow the whistle? I cannot at this time and probably in the future believe anything they say about anything.

Is Panetta really as stupid as he appears to be...Rhetorical question, of course he is.

Panetta is a waste of oxygen. Fire this parasite and leave the position unfilled.

Like party girl, billary, Panetta proves we don´t need two globe trotters with nothing on their minds except perks and pensions.

The mushy middle is no place
to find a Republican victory
Washington Times, by Ralph Reed    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/1/2013 10:23:38 PM     Post Reply
Calls that Republicans must “move to the center” reach a fever pitch every time the party loses a major election. No doubt the GOP needs to do a better job of appealing to women, younger voters and Hispanics, but it need not shed its principles. The media trope that the Republican Party is a “Star Wars” bar scene of theocrats and religious zealots by now has become a threadbare cliche. The Huffington Post said after the 2012 elections that the GOP resembles “a rump parliament of Caucasian traditionalism: white, married, churchgoing — to oversimplify only slightly.”

A new poll finds 77 percent of Americans support either delaying or repealing Obamacare´s individual mandate. The extensive survey of 2,076 registered voters found that 28 percent say the individual mandate that Americans purchase health insurance coverage should be delayed, while 49 percent say the mandate should be repealed entirely. Among those who favor delay or repeal of the mandate are 91 percent of Republicans, 77 percent of independents, and 65 percent of Democrats. The survey, conducted on behalf of the Morning Consult, also found that 50 percent of registered voters say they somewhat

Judge Dismisses ICE Agents´ Lawsuit
Challenging Obama´s Deferred Action

A federal judge on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit by immigration agents who challenged the Obama administration’s program that gives a reprieve from deportation to undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors. U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor, who earlier this year had expressed agreement with the agents’ contention that the deferred deportation program undermined their duty to enforce the law, said on Wednesday that it was not within his court’s jurisdiction to decide on what essentially is a dispute between federal employees and their employer, the U.S. government. President Obama implemented the program, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA

The National Organization for Women released their “gallery of worse offenders when it comes to women’s rights” in an email to supporters Thursday. All the offenders, according to NOW’s list, are Republicans. Noticeably absent from the gallery, however, are San Diego Democratic Mayor Bob Filner and New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner. Eight women have accused Filner of sexual harassment, including inappropriate touching. Weiner recently admitted to continuing to engage in sexting even after resigning from Congress in 2011 for similar activities. Filner has refused to resign and Weiner says he is staying

GOP: The party of ingratitude
Washington Times, by Judson Phillips    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/1/2013 9:54:36 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — If the Democrats are the Party of Treason, then the Republicans are the Party of Ingratitude. Tuesday night on Fox News, in a rare interview, Rush Limbaugh said the Republican Party establishment does not like the tea party because they cannot control the tea party. The Republican ingratitude towards the tea party gets even worse. John McCain, in an interview reported on yesterday in The Washington Times, said the tea party was damaging the Republican Party. Maybe the Republican Party needs some damaging. Perhaps it is time to remind McCain of a little history.

Dear Conservatives: Democrats
Are Not Scared Of Rand, But
They’re Terrified Of Christie
Mediaite, by Noah Rothman    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/1/2013 9:48:10 PM     Post Reply
The thoroughly entertaining back and forth that erupted this week between New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has captured the media’s attention and focused the political mind on 2016 like nothing has since the night President Barack Obama won reelection. It is hard not to view the two GOP officeholders’ heated war of words in the media through the prism of the Republican presidential primaries. Many conservatives have become so disillusioned with Christie, though, that they recoil at the thought of nominating him to be the party’s next presidential nominee.

Bill O’Reilly tonight faced off with Illinois state representative Monique Davis, who said on a radio show this week that many of her constituents have “suspicions” that Chicago police are gunning down black children. O’Reilly told Davis that she unfairly legitimized a “destructive” rumor, and that she had a responsibility in her role as an elected official not to say such garbage in the public eye. Davis insisted to O’Reilly that she wasn’t alleging anything, just repeating what constituents told her. O’Reilly pressed her on why she didn’t dismiss it as “crazy,” explaining that she has “credibility as

For years billionaire Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has been in a fight with Forbes Magazine over its estimation of his wealth and his position on the Forbes Billionaires list. He even sued the magazine over its 2013 ranking, which placed him #26 in the world. I guess all that expensive Photoshop work was for nothing. At odds in ranking his net worth is the value of his company, Kingdom Holdings Co. As a private equity firm, Kingdom Holdings has exposure to various management, real estate and financial services companies. It also invests in industrial and energy interests.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - Newport News Police say a local rapper’s song helped link him to a cold case involving a double homicide in 2007. On May 10, 2007, officers were dispatched to the 23rd Street and Orcutt Avenue area for reports of shots fired. While en route, the call was upgraded to a shooting after a victim was found lying on a front porch in the 2300 block of Orcutt Avenue. That victim, identified as Brian Dean, suffered a gunshot wound to the head. Dean was unconscious but breathing and was taken to a local hospital.

   

 



 
Stealthy Obamacare co-ops refuse

All but one of the 24 healthcare co-ops funded by a $2 billion Obamacare program intended to create public competition for private sector insurers failed to file required tax returns, according to a Washington Examiner survey. The co-ops are required under federal law to file IRS Form 990 tax returns each year. The 990 is a public disclosure document that provides extensive financial information about the filing non-profit, including its sources of revenue, what it spends its funds on, and the compensation paid officers and key staff members.

President Obama emerged from a meeting with Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi praising him for ushering in serious diplomatic reforms and pushing back against al Qaeda but pointedly did not announce an agreement to repatriate any Yemeni detainees from Guantanamo Bay. Under Hadi’s leadership, relations between the U.S. and Yemen have improved dramatically, Obama said, as the Yemeni people have worked to “produce a constitution and transition to a fully democratic government.” Obama also gave Hadi credit for cooperating with the U.S. on countering terrorism in the region and for helping to curtail al Qaeda’s influence in Yemen.

Mark Levin, who hosts one of America´s top radio talk shows and is considered by supporters to be the people´s pundit on the Constitution, is rallying his 8.5 million-strong audience to demand an historic convention of state governments to halt the "oppressive power" of the federal government.

Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State.

Serial sexter Anthony Weiner’s wife partly blamed herself last year when her horndog husband confessed to her that he was at it again. Friends and family told People magazine that Huma Abedin was kicking herself at the time for bailing out of couples counseling and focusing more on their newborn baby boy. But, thanks to a new round of joint therapy that continues even now, the couple was able to put the relapse behind them. “They really became a unit, and she feels much closer to Anthony now,” a relative told the magazine. That’s a long way from how Abedin

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.

Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,

Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But

Colin Powell has admitted to exchanging ´very personal´ emails with a Romanian diplomat but denies having an affair with the much younger woman after a hacker threatened to release their intimate messages. The 76-year-old retired general told the Smoking Gun that he met Corina Cretu, 45, roughly 10 years ago when she was working as an assistant to the president of Romania. She is now a member of the European Parliament. ´After I left the Department of State in January 2005 we stayed in touch via email,´ he told TSG.
