GOP rep calls Petraeus probe
´perplexing and suspicious´

Fox News, by Catherine Herridge

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/17/2014 5:02:17 AM

The ongoing investigation of former CIA director David Petraeus is “perplexing and suspicious,” according to a leading Republican on the House Government Oversight Committee. After sending a letter and questioning Attorney General Eric Holder twice and former FBI Director Robert Mueller once about the probe, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told Holder in a new letter this week, "I find the timeline...to be increasingly perplexing and suspicious. I urge the Department to move forward with this investigation in an expeditious and prudent manner." Chaffetz also told Gretchen Carlson on Fox News’ “The Real Story” Wednesday that the open investigation may have a chilling

They´re keeping Petraeus quiet. It´s obvious to all of us.

CIA employees have to take polygraph exams every six months or so. (I may be wrong). If so, they know he did not do anything illegal.

The investigation is nothing other than a ruse to prevent him from testifying.

An endless parade of Obama conspired lies
The Passing oath violating Charade
with a town full of conspirators
and a New York knee pad media

At this point, anybody who can´t see it,
anybody in severe denial,

Safe to assume that Obama knew about Petraeus´ bimbo biographer with the perfect name, Broadwell, BEFORE Petraeus was appointed CIA Director, which is why he was appointed to a job he lacked experience with. Obama also had Elizabeth Warren, then acting head of the newly created CFPB, hire Petraeus´ wife to a $187,500 a year job, a job she still has, furthering sweetening what appears to be a bribe to the money grubbing general who was receiving his $150,000 per year military pension in addition to his CIA salary,

These financial gifts of taxpayer money kept Petraeus quiet about Obama´s disastrous decisions in Iraq and Afghanistan and Obama´s lies about Benghazi during his 20 month assignment as CIA head. To keep the the gag on Petraeus after 11/2012, Obama had Holder start an investigation of Petraeus, an investigation that has gone on longer than the one for George Zimmerman, the condo owner who shot Trayvon Martin. Holder still has Zimmerman´s gun, Petraeus´s wife still has her CFPB job and Petraeus has a reason to remain silent rather than speak out on the fatal actions of Obama. The Chicago Way in action.

Petraeus can probably blow the case wide open:

Fox News has been told any testimony by Petraeus would be of keen interest to the Benghazi committee headed by Rep.Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., ...

I trust Gowdy to find a way. He is formidable and will not let this alone.

Holder is the keeper of all information too damaging to our dear leader. As long as they keep it as an "ongoing" investigation, all lips are sealed.

I´m starting to think Holder is the most dangerous man in America right now. He has entirely too much power and control over all these scandals.

Our Department of so-called Justice under Eric The Great has become a whipping boy of political punishment.The Department has become an army of political hacks anxious to get even for imaginary harms. It’s a “justice” that permits you to threaten voters away from a voting booth with billy clubs, if you be the right skin color.

Some of us think the biggest crisis this country faces involves character--lower standards of honesty and integrity, for instance.

The Petraeus case may reveal how the general, seen as a man of good character, fell from grace so suddenly. Were there others with serious character flaws involved?

It is time to demand a full detailed report on the status of these investigations. Failure to immediately demonstrate real progress should be cause for Congress to order the Administration to stop the internal investigations and let Congress do its Constitutional oversight job.

If and when the Patraeus investigation interferes with the Gowdy committee’s progress – by keeping them from interviewing Patraeus or the administration uses the “ongoing investigation” excuse for not providing important information, then Gowdy’s committee should request a detailed report on the status of the investigation including:
*A week-by-week accounting of the man-hours spent on the investigation, including the nature of the work performed (interviewing witness X, reviewing document Y, analyzing communications between A and B, status/coordination meetings between investigators, etc.);
*The names and titles of all of the people that they claim have been involved in the investigation; and time sheets, travel expense reports, calendars, etc. for each of them;
*All emails or other communications related to the investigations – from all levels of the FBI and/or the administration, particularly emails between the investigators and anyone above them.

Any bets on whether that information will be produced quickly or whether there will be another smoke-screen of delays and excuses (crashed computers, destroyed hard-drives, emails only stored for 6-months despite the fact that federal laws mandate otherwise, etc.)

When you are in the regime business, you need to know the personal weaknesses and embarrassing secrets of important persons. This valuable information is then held in reserve and exploited to gain the cooperation of those important persons to help achieve regime goals. IMO Petraeus is such a person.

HRABOVE, Ukraine—Angela Rudhart-Dyczynski slipped off her shoes, covered her feet in white socks and crunched through a field tinged with the sick-sweet smell of death to reach a wing of downed Malaysia Airlines Flight 17. She and her husband arrived Saturday from Australia after an exhausting three-day journey that left her feet too swollen for shoes. They braved this war zone in search of a lost passenger: Fatima, their only child. "We´re standing here at the wing in the field," Jerzy Dyczynski, a cardiologist, said into his phone, as the wind blew. "This is where we thought she was sitting.

To the surprise of many, but not to those who understand him, Vladimir Putin has upped his aggression against Ukraine in the wake of the shooting down of MH17 by his separatist allies. (For a definitive account of separatist guilt, see AP What Happened: The Day Flight 17 Was Downed.) The Russian military is now routinely shelling Ukrainian positions from across the border, hoping to elicit a response so they can claim a Ukrainian attack. Russia’s drones are targeting troop positions. Even more sophisticated missiles are flooding across the border, ignoring the lesson of the Malaysian jet tragedy. Russian MIGs

It took Jimmy Carter the first six months of his tenure in the Oval Office to learn that a president´s time is precious and must be focused on the most urgent priorities facing the nation at any given moment. It was at that point that Carter stopped doing absurd tasks like reviewing scheduling requests from his staff to use the White House tennis court. Carter never completely overcame his obsession with paying attention to details better left to aides, however, and this flaw was a major factor in producing his monumentally failed presidency.

Describing his approach to dealings with the Soviet Union near the end of the Cold War, President Reagan famously warned, “Trust, but verify.” A version of that wise caution should be used in dealing with the increasing efforts by the Chinese Navy to cultivate more cooperative military relationships, particularly in seeking greater access to U.S. aircraft carriers: “Cooperate, but very cautiously!” China’s navy chief, Adm. Wu Shengli recently urged his counterpart U.S. Admiral Jonathon W.

“How did you go bankrupt?”“Two ways.

Does innocent human life matter in the Middle East if it is Christian? We ask because while Israel’s efforts to defend itself against terrorism from Hamas have provoked worldwide condemnation and demonstrations, the ethnic cleansing of a Christian community that has been in Iraq for more than 1,600 years continues with only a whimper of protest. The developments are the latest chapter in a larger story that includes the burning of Coptic churches in Egypt, the jailing of a pastor in Iran and the exodus of Palestinian Christians in the face of growing Muslim intolerance. Now the Islamic State of Iraq has declared

Palestinian sources told the London-based A-Sharq Al-Awsat that Kerry had initially agreed to an Egyptian proposal for an immediate ceasefire followed by five days of negotiations between Israel and the PA, with American assurances to address some of Hamas’s demands.

Barack Obama is apparently very angry with Bibi Netanyahu.

He needed someone to beat up since the world was beating him up. And the Israelis had just hugely embarrassed his secretary of State (and by extension him) by

President Obama appears poised to take executive action that would legalize as many as 5 million illegal immigrant parents of U.S.-born children, a prospect that riles local immigration critics and adds a new dimension to concern about swelling immigrant populations in states like Massachusetts eyed as hosting sites for thousands of children who crossed the border unaccompanied. The Associated Press reported yesterday White House officials are laying the groundwork for an executive order that would automatically legalize roughly 5 million of an estimated 11 million people who have entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas.

When The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff first reported the content of John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal on Friday afternoon, I wondered if something had gotten lost in translation. It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza. It seemed inconceivable that the secretary’s initiative would specify the need to address Hamas’s demands for a lifting of

Former presidential nominee Mitt Romney would win the popular vote if a rematch of the 2012 election against President Obama were held today, a CNN/ORC poll has revealed. According to the poll, if the 2012 election were held again today, Romney would receive 53% of the popular vote, and Mr. Obama would receive 44%, CNN reported. Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the actual election. The poll said, however, that the former Massachusetts governor would lose against Hillary Clinton by double digits in a hypothetical election. Mrs. Clinton would earn 55% of the vote, with Mr. Romney at 42%.
