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?

Enough.

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.

Agreed, #15. But taking that step gives Congress the authority to tell the Emperor to "stick" his investigations. Congress can simply ignore them and any excuse that these investigations might be "compromised". It can then do its 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.

The Iraqi Army’s Alamo:
Standoff in Tikrit
Daily Beast, by Jacob Siegel    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/20/2014 12:26:52 PM     Post Reply
ISIS fighters say they captured Camp Speicher in Tikrit on Friday. The Iraqi Army says the vital outpost is under its control. In this web of propaganda, who´s telling the truth? Since Tikrit fell to ISIS forces in early June, recapturing the city—Saddam Hussein’s hometown—has been a centerpiece of the Iraqi Army’s campaign. But despite Baghdad’s efforts, pouring soldiers and resources into the battle there, the fighting has dragged on for weeks with only fleeting gains. At stake in Sunni-dominated Tirkit is the Iraqi government’s ability to defeat ISIS and retake the country. So far they have little to show

Nearly a year before President Obama declared a humanitarian crisis on the border, a team of experts arrived at the Fort Brown patrol station in Brownsville, Tex., and discovered a makeshift transportation depot for a deluge of foreign children. Thirty Border Patrol agents were assigned in August 2013 to drive the children to off-site showers, wash their clothes and make them sandwiches. As soon as those children were placed in temporary shelters, more arrived. An average of 66 were apprehended each day on the border and more than 24,000 cycled through Texas patrol stations in 2013.

LONDON — ONE thing is certain: Whatever the outcome, this referendum campaign is changing Scotland irrevocably. Whether the Scots vote yes or no to independence on Sept. 18, their sense of what is possible for this small nation will have been transformed. Reporting on Scottish politics through wind and rain for almost 40 years, I have covered three referendums on self-government. The first, in 1979, offered a modest elected assembly: A slim majority of voters approved it, but the turnout fell short of the threshold required for the proposal to become law. The second, in 1997, proposed a restored Scottish Parliament

In a little-noticed action, the U.N. General Assembly on April 2, 2013, adopted by “majority vote” an Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) with the objective of regulating the international trade in conventional arms, from small arms to major military equipment. The treaty’s lofty objectives were to foster peace and security by limiting uncontrolled destabilizing arms transfer to areas of conflict. In particular, it was also meant to prevent countries that abuse human rights from acquiring arms. While the record of the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty discussions makes no mention of it, the genesis for regulating the unrestrained transfer of conventional arms to

Four years ago, the big-government liberals got the agency of their dreams, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. It was the brainchild of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who was a Harvard law professor in real life and a Cherokee Indian in her dreams before she was elected to the U.S. Senate. There she beats the drums for the bureau to serve as a “cop on the beat” to protect consumers from undisciplined capitalism. The bureau is mired in undisciplined corruption. Created through the passage of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street regulation act, the bureau was crafted with uniquely undemocratic features. The bureau pays its

LOS ANGELES — Actor James Garner, whose whimsical style in the 1950s TV Western “Maverick” led to a stellar career in TV and films such as “The Rockford Files” and his Oscar-nominated “Murphy’s Romance,” has died, police said. He was 86. He was found dead of natural causes at his home in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles Saturday evening, Los Angeles police officer Alonzo Iniquez said early Sunday. Police responded to a call around 8 p.m. PDT and confirmed Garner’s identity from family members, Iniquez told The Associated Press. There was no immediate word on a more specific cause of death. Garner had suffered a stroke in May 2008, just weeks after his 80th birthday.

It is at times like these, when he is pushed kicking and screaming into the crucible, that Obama’s callowness shows. For his supporters, that jejune, jocular air has been a plus for almost six years.
