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

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.

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.

Obama notifies Congress of ordering

Washington - President Barack Obama formally notified the U.S. Congress on Monday that he had authorized air strikes and humanitarian airdrops over the weekend in the Iraqi Shi’ite town of Amerli where Islamic State militants had trapped the civilian population. Iraqi security forces backed by Shi´ite militias on Sunday broke the two-month siege of Amerli and entered the northern town after the U.S. military carried out air strikes on militant positions and delivered emergency supplies to residents there. Obama said in a letter to congressional leaders he was notifying Congress of his decision under the long-standing War Powers Resolution,

As we have often observed, and did so again in the post just below this one, Team Obama specializes in excuses for inaction and complacency in the face of the threat posed by ISIS and other Islamic terrorists. But I never thought that, among its excuses, would be praise for the policies of President Bush and Vice President Cheney. Yet, as Daniel Halper reports, President Obama used just that excuse at a fundraiser in Rhode Island last night. Obama told Democrat fat cats that despite what “seems like. . .just wave after wave of upheaval, most of it surrounding the

Legally, it doesn’t matter that both Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin were “unarmed” when shot to death. One of the most common laments to come out of Ferguson these last days has been that surely it was outrageous for Office Darren Wilson to use his service pistol to shoot an “unarmed” Mike Brown. (Earlier iterations of this narrative went further in their misinformation, describing the 18-year-old 6’4" 292 pound Brown as a “kid” or “child,” as well as falsely claiming that Wilson shot Brown in the back, but such misinformation falls outside the scope of this post.)

Raising the spectre of nuclear war over Ukraine, Russia’s Vladimir Putin is playing a new, and dangerous, game. On Friday, as Russian Federation tanks and troops poured across the border into eastern Ukraine, Vladimir Putin talked about his country’s most destructive weaponry. “I want to remind you that Russia is one of the most powerful nuclear nations,” he said. “This is a reality, not just words.” Russia, he told listeners, is “strengthening our nuclear deterrence forces.” That same day, Putin used a term for eastern Ukraine meaning “New Russia.” So when he refers to repelling “any aggression against Russia” and

WASHINGTON — As fighters affiliated with the self-declared Islamic State roll across the porous Turkish border into Syria, the United States has a problem: It has no ambassador to Turkey. As the Ebola virus rages in Sierra Leone, the United States has no ambassador there. And as North Korea poses a nuclear threat, the United States has no ambassador in South Korea. Nominations for the posts are among dozens languishing in the Senate, many for months. The would-be ambassador to Sierra Leone, for example, has been waiting more than 400 days for an up-or-down vote. Veteran diplomats say the Senate’s persistent gridlock

This year, New York’s Labor Day Parade will be open to some who’ve been uninvited before: non-union workers. We’re glad to see it. Because just as Big Business is often confused with American capitalism, too often Big Labor is regarded as synonymous with workers. The reality of the American labor force is far more complicated, and these days the typical union man is less likely to be a muscled ironworker than a city bureaucrat. The last few years have not been good ones for workers. A record number of Americans have simply left the work force. Of those who have jobs, many struggle

It´s also a good time to reflect on the 2014 election cycle so far -- full of dramatic twists, turns, unexpected triumphs and bitter disappointments. Sometimes all in the same day. There have also been a handful of unmitigated disasters. We´re talking about the campaigns that failed miserably, after kicking off full of promise, in most cases.

At the end of the eighth century, Harun al-Rashid, a caliph of the Abbasid dynasty, built a palace in Raqqa, on the Euphrates River, in what is now Syria. His empire stretched from modern Tunisia to Pakistan. It was an age of Islamic discovery in science, music, and art; Rashid’s court of viziers inspired stories in “One Thousand and One Nights.” In June, the Islamic State in Iraq al-Sham (ISIS) declared Raqqa the seat of a new caliphate, presided over by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a fierce preacher who was once an American prisoner in Iraq, and is now in hiding.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.
