Dems prepare game plan as
Issa investigates Benghazi audit

The Hill [Washington DC], by Julian Pecquet

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/26/2013 6:43:08 PM

Democrats vow they won´t be caught flat-footed when the co-author of the State Department´s independent audit on Benghazi appears for a closed-door interview with congressional investigators next month. Retired Ambassador Thomas Pickering has agreed to be deposed by Rep. Darrell Issa´s (R-Calif.) Oversight panel on June 3 after being threatened with a subpoena. Democrats say they´re wary of a trap, and want to be able to counter what they say is Issa´s habit of leaking “cherry-picked” portions of witnesses´ testimonies to the press.

Benghazi is not a game. There will come a time when even democrats are held responsible in a court of law for the crimes they so brazenly commit. Only then will our nation begin to heal.

You issue subpoenas. If they are ignored then start jailing people. Simple. This would be over in a week with obama and Holder and Clinton and others in jail.

Issa and others are just putting on a show.

All the stories about the press finally coming around? Um, not so much. Issa is the new Ken Starr as is anyone who brings to light facts and truth about anything, not just Benghazi. The MSM´s Holy Temple of Me is threatened, so truth will become yet another Mark Fuhrman trial. And the GOP, since November, 1995, will walk right into it all, and bravely fall down, roll over and soil themselves with furrowed brows and LOTS of Depends. The same rerun played over, and over, and over, and over... Gosh, how do I know this?

I, too, remain highly skeptical of Issa to accomplish anything beyond putting on a good show. In the past he´s folded. He´s seems to like being on Greta too much for my tastes.

I pray that I´m really, really wrong this time.

All of these investigations are just a show. High drama. Nothing will be done. Nobody will be held accountable. There may be a few token resignations but no jail time. Obama and Holder won´t be touched. The repubs will act as if they have really accomplished something and the dems will steal the next election too.

A few days ago, when I suggested that the work of Lois Lerner and all the other gals in the president´s stable qualified him as one of the most successful pimps of all time, I certainly did not mean to slight the well run bordello at our State Department. The recent tricks turned by Mr. Pickering and Adm. Muller show Hillary has earned the right to be addressed as "Madam" Secretary.

First of all, let me say I´m not a pessimist, but instead a realist. Nobody is going to get to the bottom of this. The ´authorities´ in the Benghazi case, IRS, and Justice Dept. will stall, stall, and stall until Republicans lose interest, followed by the public losing interest. Just saying.

Obama has decreed the next year-and-a-half as his Regain the House mission. He´s been at it since before he was re-imaculated in January and will spend all his time until the 2014s working to make Republicans as awful as possible.

And when his statist House stable is full of jackasses, then Benghazi, the AP/James Rosen mess, F&F, and everything else will be effectively found ´no there there´. Done. Over with. And gone.

Just like the War on Terror has been decreed over and al qaeda declared vanquished.

Issa has a lot of work to do, in a very short time.

You all are probably right. One ´but´ though.

A lot of liberals are seeing through the veil. The IRS scandal has had an effect. They are feeling the pain, so to speak, of something like that happening to them. They don´t like it. The truth of Obama was somewhat exposed to them.

This will help down the road if it is used wisely.

"Democrats say that hasn´t stopped Issa from leaking a constant drip-drip of damaging allegations about Benghazi over the past few weeks. These include the revelation that the Obama administration ordered a special forces team in Tripoli to stand down before the attack was over.

Just read that paragraph. "Revelations" about what happened characterized as "damaging allegations." If it is a revelation it is truth. if it is an allegation it remains to be proven. One has to read carefully, but these blatant attempts to use language to bias, rather than get at the truth is a Libtard hallmark.

Issa bobs and weaves, and has no explanation for his failure to effectively get to the bottom of this debacle. He presided over the shameful Hillary lovefest. Gowdy is a bulldog. Let him off the leash.

Nobody died in Watergate. Hillary said that the Coptic Christian man who made that silly anti-Islam video will stay in jail for as long, long time. That reminds me of Stalin´s Soviet Union. No muslim ever saw that silly video and the video did not start the riots. They were planned Al Qudea Operations.
Barry and Hillary did not send help because perhaps Hillary was drunk and Barry was having fun at a gay Chicago party with his gay Chicago friends.
Maybe Obama and Hillary did not send help because they did not want to upset their Libyan terrorist pals, and they did not care if four brave Americans died in Benghazi.

FTA: “If it´s true to form, if it´s a closed deposition, his staff [will] cherry pick content and leak it once again to the press that´s only too willing to print it,” panel member Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) told The Hill. “It might be grossly inaccurate. In fact, it may be the opposite of what´s being asserted. But by the time somebody gets around to reporting that – if they ever do – the damage is done.”

The hypocrisy of this statement is breathtaking. The accusations are right out of the Democrat playbook. How frightening it must be to have their own tactics used against them.

If Connolly had the courage to look in a mirror, he would see an image the like of Dorian Gray.

This way in 18 months they can point to these groups of stories and say, "see we were up on top of it and it went nowhere." and "it was all a republican scam to tear down the irst black President anyway"
Then all googlereferenes will have thee stories as the top 18 search results and

Issa is fine. Not sure who the naysayers are. Lots of new names show up; only a few old timers. We must consider the presence of trolls.

That said, here is a great example of Issa´s ability to cut through the Dem´s bee-ess:

Democrats acknowledge that they were present last month when the committee conducted its transcribed interview with the Number 2 diplomat in Libya at the time of the attack, Gregory Hicks. But they say they were never invited to speak to another key witness in the panel´s hearing with self-described State Department whistle-blowers.

Democrats say they should have been given a chance to interview Mark Thompson, the State Department´s acting deputy assistant secretary for counterterrorism, ahead of the May 8 hearing. They say his Republican attorney, Joseph diGenova, shielded him from Democrats.

Issa strongly denied interfering during the hearing.

“Mr. Thompson, is it your decision who you talk to?” he asked. “And did any of my people ever tell you not to talk to the Democratic minority?”

“No,” Thompson answered.

At least Issa is doing something.
When so called conservatives like Limbaugh
trash him and provide the left with talking points , makes you wonder what side they´re actually on.
This is how Limbaugh described Congressman Issa last Wed after Lerner gave an opening statement and then took the Fifth.
" He looked clueless, like didn’t know what was going on, didn’t know how to deal with this ".
Conducting a thorough investigation is not like CSI and the many tv shows
Limbaugh wastes time watching .
Issa has to fight not just the crooks in the Obama Administration, but, the clueless loudmouths on the right.

Sen. John Cornyn (R., Texas) is demanding answers from Attorney General Eric Holder on the Justice Department’s pursuit of “smart gun” technology, warning that the government could require all gun owners to wear biometric bracelets to operate their firearms. Cornyn sent a letter to the attorney general on Wednesday in response to remarks he made in testimony before a House subcommittee earlier this month, which were first reported by the Washington Free Beacon. Holder said his agency is “exploring” technology to make guns “more safe.” “By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or

An army of NYPD cops on Thursday evicted a homeless man from his Manhattan Bridge “home” — which was complete with a gas heater, hot sauce and beer. A dozen officers from both the 5th and 84th Precincts plus four Emergency Service Unit cops launched the raid about 9:50 a.m. A DOT worker on a ladder first used bolt cutters to remove a red bicycle lock on the wooden structure — which turned out to be fully insulated with Styrofoam and a large tarp. “Police department!

NATO announced Wednesday that it is enhancing its military footprint on its eastern flank, and the alliance’s top military commander in Europe hinted that in light of Russia’s recent aggression, it is “important that we take a pause and determine what is appropriate for [the size of] U.S. forces in Europe.” The number of U.S. troops in Europe has dropped dramatically since the Soviet Union collapsed. More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen.

With total student loans exceeding $1 trillion, one must ask “is the tassel worth the financial hassle” when it comes to spending for prestigious colleges. Here’s my rough rule of thumb for taking on student loan debt: “Think long and hard about taking on more in total student loans than you expect to earn, on average, in your first 10 years after graduating.” That’s a mouthful so let me put some numbers on it.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

The documents consists of a series of emails relating to the IRS’s treatment of applications for 501(c)(4) status from “Tea Party” or otherwise conservative organizations. I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed. The email below documents a call from the Department of Justice about whether non-profits that “lied” about doing political activity

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
