Dem Congressman At Benghazi
Hearing: "Death Is A Part Of Life"

Real Clear Politics, by Ian Schwartz

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 5/8/2013 2:27:15 PM

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), ranking member of the House Oversight Committee, tells Benghazi witnesses that "death is a part of life." CUMMINGS: And, as I listen to your testimony I could not help but think of something that I said very recently -- two years ago now -- in a eulogy for a relative. I said that death is a part of life, so often we have to find a way to make life a part of death. And, I guess the reason why I´m saying that, going back to something Mr. Nordstrom said, he wanted,

Congressman Cummings,

I am sure that was a great comfort to the families of the men your party left to die.

Doddering old partisan fool.

His mission, like the mission of all the other Dems on this committee, is to diminish the witnesses and their testimony, as well as any remarks they made previously. Really constructive. /s

Cummings is a great example of the Liberal rot that has infected Maryland. He, Gov Rain Tax O´Malley and other "do-gooders" are destroying Maryland just like Obama is destroying the USA.

He is just trying to protect the party and it´s top leaders. Nothing must tarnish the image of the party, Dear Leader or Hillary. The lives of a few people mean nothing compared to the party´s image.

A variation on "What difference does it make?"

As Jay Carney said, Benghazi happened a long time ago. What´s the use dragging it all out into the open now? It is time to heal. Time to move on.

Besides, it´s all political. Everything Republicans do is political and partisan and therefore meaningless and malicious. Only Democrats are non-partisan, non-political, above party politics.

Democrats are trying to fix the country that George W. Bush and the Republicans broke, but partisan Republicans keep getting in the way and trying to derail the president´s plan to fundamentally transform the United States of America.

Sounds like all the Dems got the memo on talking points:

1. Thank everyone for their service and bravery.
2. Say we must honor the dead by making sure this doesn´t happen again.

Love how honoring the dead by bringing the truth out and punishing the liars isn´t on that list of talking points.

Let us suppose that for reasons of uncertainty of the risk, and a desire to spare his firefighters from danger, Mayor Giuliani had ordered first responders not to enter the World Trade Towers. Considering that hundreds of firefighters would be alive today, would we admire the mayor for his call? Would there be a political up side to such a decision? Would Elijah Cummings say that "death is a part of life?"

"Death is a part of life." I took some comfort in those words when my mother died unexpectedly several years ago. Death by natural causes IS a part of life. Being sodomized and murdered most certainly is more than just "a part of life."

Please pardon poor ol´ Mister Cummings.

You see... he just got back from Mars with Sheila Jackson Lee... where they were able
to view the American flags planted by our U.S. astronauts there previously.

As shown on TV by the Mars rovers we sent there to check on our flags.

While on Mars, Cummings noted, "Death is a part of Mars." Boy, he´s right about that.
Luckily he didn´t mention anything about life while he was up there.

Mister Cummings is... a Patriot... Why else would he be going to Mars with Ms. Lee?
Doncha see? .... (s/o)

Sometimes it´s Maxine Waters, others Barbara Lee.

What Republicans need to realize is, and stay often, that there is a cover-up by the democrats.
Just keep saying it, and people will start to realize it, and start asking what´s being covered up.

Assuming his bio on the web is reasonably accurate this man cannot possibly be as stupid as his comments make him sound. Since we don´t have the whole text it is impossible to tell what he is trying to say with what certainly seems to be an irrelevant non sequitur. Presumably it is somehow intended to diminish or downplay the importance of the investigation, though it is not at all clear how such a confused and inappropriate banality could do this. It would be much more like to irritate and inflame further those who are already disturbed by the Benghazi debacle and its disgusting aftermath.

John Maynard Keynes was no dummy, but when he was asked what the consequences of his advocacy of government spending would be in the long run, famously replied that "in the long run, we are all dead." This was received in some quarters as a sensible reply.

Perhaps we will just never really understand how these liberals, Leftists, progressives, socialists, Communists and community agitators think. Perhaps that might be because in more cases than not, they do not think. They feel. They emote. They dream. They imagine things that never were.

Fast-food protests to

Associated Press, by Candice Choi    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/17/2014 11:32:42 PM     Post Reply
NEW YORK -- Fast-food protests are planned for several U.S. cities Tuesday as labor organizers look to bring attention to practices they say illegally deprive workers of their wages. The protests are planned for about 30 cities, but it´s not clear what the scope of the turnout will be. It´s part of an ongoing campaign by labor groups to build support for pay of $15 an hour and bring attention to the rights of low-wage workers. Organizers have also been referring workers to attorneys, who filed lawsuits in three states last week saying McDonald´s was stealing their wages in a

Maybe Barack Obama should have given Zach Galifianakis an off-ramp, like the one he keeps trying to offer Vladimir Putin. Those were some pretty barbed lines the president unloaded on the comic actor last week in their semi-parodic "Between Two Ferns" interview. In case you´re wondering why I´m writing about this—well, I am too. A Malaysian jetliner has vanished into thin air, while Russia has completed its seizure of Crimea and may yet invade other parts of Ukraine. Serious stuff, you might say. But the big story of last week as far as the president is concerned is his appearance alongside

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

Secession: Following Sunday´s forced referendum and despite U.S. and European Union sanctions, it looks like Russia will succeed in separating Crimea from Ukraine. Are the borders of every country now up for grabs? We´ve heard all the arguments, including that Crimea´s population is 58% Russian, and that it was only in 1954, during the Soviet era under Nikita Khrushchev — himself a Ukrainian — that it became part of Ukraine. But allowing Crimea to be pried away from Ukraine by threat of force after Russia´s fraudulent referendum sends a signal to disgruntled regions of the world that, when it comes to borders,

LOS ANGELES — A National Guard reservist has been arrested at the U.S.-Canada border in Washington for allegedly trying to aid al-Qaida in a plot to attack a Southland subway. Nicholas Teausant, 20, of Acampo, Calif., was charged Monday with attempting to provide material to support a foregoing terrorist organization, the U.S. District Attorney’s Office said. Teausant was arrested at the Canadian border “with the intent of continuing to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, a foreign terrorist organization more widely known as al-Qaida in Iraq,” officials said.

Paris — As Russia absorbs Crimea and masses 60,000 troops on Ukraine’s border, is the West serious about sanctions against Moscow? The best test could come this Tuesday, when the defense and foreign ministers of Russia and France are scheduled to meet for long-planned talks on relations between the two countries. French president François Hollande has already announced that “there will be sanctions Monday on visas and assets of a certain number of [Russian] individuals if there is no de-escalation.” But he absolutely must go further.

Police are investigating the possibility that the pilot of missing Flight MH370 hijacked his own aircraft in a bizarre political protest. The Mail on Sunday has learned that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges.

I had an extraordinary telephone conservation with my 86-year-old black dad, a lifelong Democrat and huge Obama fan. He called to ask me, “Is Obama anti-Christian?” Dad has been a Christian pastor for over 50 years. I said, “Dad, I have been telling you about Obama´s anti-Christian policies for the past five years.” Dad replied, “And I have not been listening.” Dad confessed that he simply could not bring himself to go against a black man in the White House. I felt that dad was expressing the sentiments of many blacks of his era. I asked him to explain why

SAN FRANCISCO - Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Saturday called on the Republican Party to become more inclusive on issues like immigration. "We have a responsibility to those who do not yet have the liberties and the rights that we enjoy," Rice told a cheering crowd at the annual gathering of California Republicans in the San Francisco suburb of Burlingame. "We cannot abandon them ... We were once them." She did not offer a specific policy idea. The speech by Rice, who was secretary of state under President George W. Bush, was the highlight of the second day of

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is

Late night comedian Bill Maher told his HBO “Real Time” audience on Friday that God was a “psychotic mass murderer.” He made the comments during a conversation on the biblical story of Noah and the upcoming Hollywood version of it that’s about to hit the big screen. “But the thing that’s really disturbing about Noah isn’t the silly, it’s that it’s immoral. It’s about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it, and his name is God,” Mr. Maher said, adding, “What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he’s mad at? I mean, besides

It’s been less than six months since Bret Stephens used a version of this headline, but four events in the last week have caused it to scream in my mind. Before I get into those four events, let me say that I understand the only way to stay remotely sane in Washington, D.C., is to ignore 85 percent of whatever is trending at any given moment. That said, there are times anyone less isolated than a Carthusian monk is unavoidably exposed to “news” that 25 years ago would be considered fit only for National Enquirer. The four events that have disturbed

The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., founder of the hate-fueled Westboro Baptist Church, is at “the edge of death,” his son reports. Nathan Phelps, who fled the infamous Kansas church more than 30 years ago, claims his notorious father was kicked out of the congregation he built and is now spending his final days in hospice care. “I´ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the "God Hates (deleted to clear site filter)" Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the ‘church’ back in August of 2013,” Nathan Phelps wrote on Facebook. “He is now on the edge of death at

As the search for the missing flight MH370 enters its 10th day with few clues as to its whereabouts, the New Straits Times said today the Boeing 777-200ER dropped 5,000 feet (1,500m) to evade commercial radar detection. In an exclusive story, the government-backed paper said investigators analysing MH370’s flight data revealed that the 200-tonne, fully laden twinjet descended 1,500m or even lower to evade commercial (secondary) radar coverage after it turned back from its flight path en route to Beijing. (Snip) Investigators poring over MH370’s flight data had said the plane had flown low and used “terrain masking” as it

BOSTON- Boston´s Irish-American mayor will not march in the city´s St. Patrick´s Day parade on Sunday after failing to hammer out a deal with organizers to allow a group of gay and lesbian activists to march openly. Mayor Marty Walsh had tried to negotiate a deal with organizers, the conservative Allied War Veteran´s Council, to allow members of MassEquality, one of Massachusetts´ largest gay activist groups, to join the parade. "So much of our Irish history has been shaped by the fight against oppression," Walsh, the city´s first Irish-American mayor in 20 years, said in a statement. "As mayor of

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

One of our planes is missing. That’s basically all we know for certain right now, but more than a week after losing contact with flight MH370, there are a lot of other suggestive bits of information. Unfortunately, a lot of it is, as usual, being reported by news readers who barely understand that you don’t want to keep the pointy end aimed at the ground for an extended time. Here’s some things we do know now. The first indication of trouble was when the transponder stopped responding to radar. This is the point where newspeople are saying it “dropped off the radar,”

The number bounced around for years — 46 million. President Obama said it in August 2009: “I don’t have to explain to you that nearly 46 million Americans don’t have health insurance coverage today. In the wealthiest nation on Earth, 46 million of our fellow citizens have no coverage.” He said it dozens more times, including in June 2013: “We are not a nation that accepts nearly 46 million uninsured men, women and children.” The Obama administration pumped the number with official reports. The White House Council of Economic Advisers said, “Perhaps the most visible sign of the need for health care
