Twenty different Obama officials, including Lois Lerner in the IRS and Marilynn Tavenner at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, have lost their emails – which is against the law. The National Review reported: The revelation that Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services administrator Marilynn Tavenner did not retain her e-mails means that more than 20 witness in the Obama administration to lose or delete e-mails without notifying Congress, according to the top House investigator. “The Obama administration has lost or destroyed e-mails for more than 20 witnesses, and in each case, the loss wasn’t disclosed to the National Archives or Congress for

This will stop when Congress starts putting bureaucrats in jail for contempt of Congress.

As far as punishment for these crooks is concerned- there will not be any from the crooked Holder´s DOJ.

But what about the Sargent of Arms. Give him some Navy Seals as backup and put some bars in Pelosi´s office and let them play dominoes for twenty years.

I don´t know about anyone else, but I´m sick and tired of Congress going around in circles looking like pure idiots when asking for e-mail, etc. I blame Boehner for not having a special committee for the IRS/Tea Party problem. Ohio did us no favor by re-electing this total incompetent moron.

While one can be mad enough at the crime syndicate known as the Democrat party to bash one´s head into the wall 20 times, one can bash one´s head into the wall 40 times in anger at a Republican party willing to let the crime syndicate get away with it, especially the guy at the top running it.

There are but two real reasons that our government is run by thugs, who don´t believe in the rule of law or our Constitution.

I read today that there or twenty more prospective witnesses that the House was going to call to testify in one of the hearings. Not to have reported this unbelievable claim, promptly, is in itself against the law.

Our msm is the first and biggest reason. This would be huge news with a Republican President but this law breaking will simply be ignored, as has so many others. When the vast majority of the media, including Hollywood, talk shows and the like...it is most difficult to win the Presidency, when the msm is fully committed to the thugs. They can make chicken soup out of chicken s..t for the regime.

A crooked justice department is the second reason. Say what you will about the House inability to get to the facts of the many scandals but God knows they have tried. I feel confident that in the history of this country we have never had a justice department that was close to being as completly and arragantly corrupt...the media wouldn´t have stood for it. The watch dog agencies aren´t allowed to investigate.

Pray, vote, and take people to the polls...all they have to do is steal two or three Senate elections and we are back to where we started.

Politicians come and go - but the real government is run by lofo bureaucrats who are not voted into office and never leave.

Until you really understand the enemy if is hard to fight them. What needs to happen is, ALL of the bureaucrats need to be fired and then hire a new set of government employees who are no ideologues.

Our government is riff with communists and progressives who just keep working despite who we elect. Clean HOUSE>

Can´t we get some Republican leaders to have a back bone, stop hiding in the shadows, actually follow through on an investigation, and INDICT. Just one? Come on, throw us a bone.

We need to get rid of the toothless tigers. They are stuck in first gear, charging into battle, sword drawn, guns raised and not taking a single swipe or firing a single shot. It is really getting old now. Issa seems to be trying but no one in the pub party seems to be openly helping him/concerned!

Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of President Richard Nixon´s resignation. Several stations played TX Rep. Barbara Jordan´s speech to open hearings on the possible impeachment of Nixon. You can review it here:
http://watergate.info/1974/07/25/barbara-jordan-speech-on-impeachment.html

Her words ring as true today as they did 40 years ago:

"Today, I am an inquisitor; I believe hyperbole would not be fictional and would not overstate the solemnness that I feel right now. My faith in the Constitution is whole, it is complete, it is total. I am not going to sit here and be an idle spectator to the diminution, the subversion, the destruction of the Constitution.
…The subject of its jurisdiction are those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men. That is what we are talking about. In other words, the jurisdiction comes from the abuse or violation of some public trust. It is wrong, I suggest, it is a misreading of the Constitution, for any member here to assert that for a member to vote for an article of impeachment means that that member must be convinced that the President should be removed from office.
The Constitution doesn’t say that. The powers relating to impeachment are an essential check in the hands of this body, the legislature, against and upon the encroachment of the Executive. In establishing the division between the two branches of the legislature, the House and the Senate, assigning to the one the right to accuse and to the other the right to judge, the framers of this Constitution were very astute. They did not make the accusers and the judges the same person."


When will the House of Representatives do the right thing? It is time to impeach this pResident. Period. Hold the top executive accountable. Damn the political consequences.

If no Democrats jump ship there will be no justice. The MSM has already shown their hand, always couching their reports with the beginning phrase "Republicans claim that ...". Therefore, in the public eye, it is a partisan battle and not a legal battle.

If even a few Democrats join in the effort to find the truth and enforce the law, then the MSM, and eventually even the department of injustice will capitulate.

It is beyond my ability to understand the Democrat´s amazing display of solidarity and obedience to party above all else. To a man and woman, they love their party above all else.

#16 I´ve been saying that for a long time. There must be one honest politician somewhere or am I wrong. We all want an answer and those who have been found guilty of illegal activities must be punished. But how is this done? Does Issa or anyone else in congress have this authority or does it all go through the DOJ? What is the punishment if found guilty? Why not just fire them immediately because they have admitted that they have ´lost´ or ´deleted´ their emails and this is definitely illegal. Or is it? Emails don´t lose themselves. Someone does it, usually purposely. Why are these people continuing to get a paycheck, bonus and pension when they have committed a crime. Will someone please give us those answers and then we can go forward. Now we just go in circles within circles.

Unfortunately I blame the republicans more than the democrats. The dems are too corrupt to lead, but the republicans too stupid. They are like the mother who can´t tell her 2-year old "NO!" and then complains when he grows into a 16-year old hooligan. Cut the funding to the IRS, idiots! Only give them money to process tax returns. Cut the funding to the HHS and the EPA. You could do it tomorrow and when obozo says you shut down the government just go home. We will survive. You are making it impossible for the country to survive, and the sooner you get some stones the better for all of us.

Have to add this: a republican volunteer came to my door today asking for money. I asked him what for? Congress passes no appropriations and obozo rewrites the laws. He went into the "We really can´t do anything because of Harry Reid" crap. Has being in the minority ever stopped Nancy Pelosi? We just have a sniveling pack of cowards leading the republican party (except Cruz, Lee, Sessions, Gowdy and a few more). The sooner we get rid of them the better.

Attorneys send letter to senators
opposing campus sexual assault bill
Washington Examiner [DC], by Ashe Schow    Original Article

A group of 20 attorneys from across the country with experience handling sexual assault cases sent a letter on Thursday to the co-sponsors of the Senate’s campus sexual assault bill. The attorneys, who have all represented students accused of sexual assault who are now suing their universities for lack of due process, wrote that while sexual assault needs to be addressed, rights of the accused need to be preserved. “We are concerned that the complexity of the problem and the momentum to find a solution to the manner in which colleges handle these matters will overwhelm any effort to ensure fair treatment

Dear Reader (including those of you under quarantine), Well, this “news”letter usually begins one of two ways: serious or jocular.

If I were in charge of overseas contingency operations at the Islamic State or al-Qaeda, I would send as many suicide-bomber types back to America (and France and Britain) with a new weapon: Ebola.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Friday playfully disagreed with his older brother’s provocative suggestion that it’s best to die at 75 to avoid the vexing issues of declining performance and worsening health. Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a bio-ethicist and influential health adviser to President Barack Obama, stirred the pot in an article in the October issue of, “The Atlantic” under the headline, “Why I Hope to Die at 75.” “The mayor personally disagrees with his brother’s view on dying at 75, but he also believes it’s important to look at what Zeke was really exploring, which is how to live a full life –

In a “60 Minutes” interview Sunday, the president said, “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis.

Not long ago, the 67-year-old Phoenix engineering firm owner was going through a suitcase he carried on an excursion to Europe, a foray with two high school buddies in 1964. And there it was: a ticket he got for parking his motor scooter in a no-stopping zone in Lerici, a village in the oft-traveled northern region of Liguria. Atherton had thrown the ticket into

They used to deport illegal aliens. They used to shoot deserters. But that was then and this is now. So the three Afghan Army deserters who fled Camp Edwards and, after a short sojourn at a local strip club, took off for Canada, are now begging for political “asylum.” And we all know what political asylum means — instant welfare, forever. Instead of going in front of a firing squad, or at least being sent back to Afghanistan to fight the Taliban, the deserters are likely to score EBT cards, MassHealth, WIC vouchers, Section 8 housing, free translators — the full Tsarnaev, in

The classic cat and mouse cartoons, some made more than 70 years ago, carry a warning for subscribers to Amazon Prime Instant Video. There have been claims of racist stereotyping in the depiction of a black maid in the cartoon series. Amazon´s warning says such prejudice was once "commonplace" in US society. Tom and Jerry, once a staple of children´s television on British television, is being presented with a cautionary note about "ethnic and racial prejudices".

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

Americans love animals, even cats. Eight million stray dogs and cats find their way into animal shelters every year, and the lucky ones are adopted into a warm home with a loving family. Shelters are operated by small charities usually called “humane societies,” whose good deeds are funded by private generosity. The Humane Society of the United States trades on the good of others to finance a radical agenda. In May, the Humane Society and a handful of other radical animal-rights groups had to write a $15.8 million check to the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus for damages done. The

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents?
