Issa subpoenas Obama´s chief of staff
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Elise Viebeck

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/22/2014 7:09:42 PM

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) issued a subpoena Friday for White House chief of staff Denis McDonough, arguing he has not cooperated with a GOP probe of President Obama´s political office. Issa accused McDonough in a letter of failing to accept investigators´ "good faith" effort to address concerns about revealing privileged communications between Obama and his staff. "The White House has acknowledged that the dialogue has been constructive and that progress has been made. Unfortunately, these characterizations represent the total sum of what the White House has provided," Issa wrote

How many subpoenas have already been ignored by this administration? I´m sure Denis will grab up his papers and trot right over for a chat.

As we have found with most things with the Obama administration, they do what the darn well please. I doubt this will be an exception.

Oh, goody. The Fixer. The guy who helped concoct the Benghazi caused by a video story that Susan Rice broadcast to the world. He and Tom Donilon were on duty the night Benghazi went down - while Obie was MIA, supposedly somewhere in the WH but not in the Situation Room. Choomed? Or Reggied?

This should be interesting.

A "GOP" probe? Good grief. The GOP doesn´t do probes or have subpoena power. Congress does. You would think somebody who works on The Hill would know the difference.

This will NOT be interesting, nor productive. Tyrants scorn the carping of the plebes. Issa is a gormless poseur, perhaps suborned by 0 in some unseen manner. What he should do is deputize members of the house as Capitol Police and seize the servers---wherever they may be---on which said communications reside. Or at least arrest McDonothing. ValJar is untouchable, as she is the Emperor behind Lord Evader.

Right before the civil war, the northern generals appeared to be well suited to lead - but after a few battles, Lincoln had to look elsewhere.

That is what the GOP looks like to me. Boehner, McConnell, Ryan, Rubio, McCain. We are getting our back sides handed to us - and all we hear are excuses.

Like everyone else, I remain skeptical that McDonough will comply or if in the unlikely event he does, the information will, once again, be lost due to a computer crash. The Obama team is quite confident in their ability to ignore or destroy any evidence and the Republicans appear to be powerless to stop them. Point in fact, Lois Lerner lives her life, continues to receive her government pension and bennies all without suffering any pesky consequences that would no doubt land a Republican in prison.

How long has Issa been sending out these subpoenas and what has he accomplished. Zero. Zilch. Nada. He´s just pharting in the wind evidently. The pubbies having the majority in the House has meant nothing. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Obummer continues to spend us into the poor house and following only the rules he and VJ want to follow with not a word being said.

#4 good question. Based on the info, Valerie Jarrett is not in an existing position of authority under the president. She is sitting a non-position or one that does not exist. So if the administration want to declare executive privilege, it may not cover her. I´m just assuming.............

Ho hum...another day, another "kabuki dance" for the C-SPAN cameras.

The "acid test"...In the last five-and-a-half years, how many of the traitors, thieves, race-baiters and assorted riffraff, occupying key positions in the criminal Obama Administration, have been: (a) Removed from office (b) Tried in a federal court of law (c) Convicted and (d) Shipped off to a federal penitentiary?

Issa is a good and honorable man. His ´problem´ is that he will not compromise his principles and act outside of his constitutional boundaries. He plays by the rules, proceeding in an unwavering faith in the rule of law. He appears ineffective because the Constitution affords him no executive power. Nevertheless, he proceeds day-by-day to extract the truth. In my opinion, he is to be greatly admired.

The Democrats do not abide by the rule of law. Proof of lawlessness does not sway them. They march in lock step, driven by loyalty to party and ideology rather than their oath to the Constitution and promise to faithfully uphold the laws of our nation. To them, politics trumps all.

Pray that God will intervene and open the eyes of the people to the good and rule-abiding work that is being accomplished on a daily basis. Otherwise, the only course of action is for both sides to act outside of the bounds of their oaths. If that happens, war and revolution will be the outcome.

Since legalities don´t seem to be productive, why not go in another direction? Why not flood the media -- radio, TV, internet -- with interviews, ads and negative spots that show the Administration lawbreakers, including the O, listing beneath their faces the list of broken laws and crimes?

Why not organize massive rallies in DC and elsewhere to show how fed up we are? One Tea Party demonstration won´t do it. We need them everywhere. Get public sentiment and tell the whole truth.

If we can´t fight dirty, we´ll go down fighting again.

And this time around, we can´t even rely on the ballot box, so what is left? Seriously. What IS left?

A bit of history here. The Federal Civil Service system was created waaaay back in the 1800´s to replace what was known as the spoils system (To the victor goes the spoils). In that system, the incoming POTUS got to staff any and all governmental positions with whom ever he wanted. And the corruption was rampant. The Civil Service was created to give a continuance of government with career persons. Of course, we now have dozens of agencies that didn´t exist back then. And the Dims have worked overtime to find ways of overriding or just plain ignore the laws and rules that have been put in place over the years. And while we have had some Presidents that obeyed the laws and rules, the Obozo regime has decided that because "He Won" that they can do pretty much as the want to. And "they don´t have to obey no sticking laws".

I´m ready to exercise my 2nd Amendment rights.

When do they subpoena Soros and Val Jar? These two are the strategists and leaders behind everthing the white house says and does.

Stinky is only a mouth piece for their string pulls. Until America wakes up and realizes that Obumbler is not a president but a puppet on strings, we are all endanger.

#9 should read # 14.
Talkers like Limbaugh and Hannity indoctrinate their listeners to believe that House Republicans
have some type of magical legal powers , but, they just refuse to exercise them because they just want to be loved by the
elites.
The House can issue subpoenas and hold hearings.
They cannot appoint Special Prosecutors.
Only Eric Holder can do that.
The House has demanded that Holder appoint Special Prosecutors for Fast and Furious and the IRS.
Holder refuses.
In fact, Holder has tied up a lot of the documents that Issa wants on Fast and Furious in legal challenges.
The House has held one AG in contempt and that´s Holder.
Holder protects the corrupt Obama Administration and the media protects the corrupt DOJ.
The House has 435 members and if one listens to right wing radio, the clear impression given is that all 435 are Republicans.
200 are Democrats and 233 are Republicans, with 2 vacancies.

I´m sure McDonough´s hard drive an emails have already been destroyed. As for any paper trail, that´s what shredders are for.

I suspect many of these congressional inquiries will fall by the wayside after the November election. With 2 years until 2016, it´ll be all about getting to the WH. Besides, the GOP really doesn´t want to get to the bottom of anything. They just want you to think they do.

Liberals tend to devote a significant portion of their daily lives to proving how not racist they are. One particularly expedient way of doing this is to declare that something a conservative has said or done is totally racist, and then to place oneself in opposition to the thing that was racist: “See, I’m not a racist!” As result, the List of Things That Are Racist has grown incomprehensibly long. The Free Beacon‘s devotion to public service obligates us to provide this list (not exhaustive by any means) of what liberals do and do not consider to be racist. Things That Are Racist: 1.

Turkey approves military operations

Turkey´s parliament voted 298-98 on Thursday in favor of launching military operations across the border in Syria and Iraq, in a bid to combat the self-proclaimed "Islamic State" (IS). Despite opposition from two parties, many had viewed passage of the motion as a foregone conclusion. The legislation comes as IS attacks have caused thousands to flee the Syrian town officially known as Ayn al-Arab, but called Kobani by its Kurdish majority population, across the border from Turkey, despite airstrikes by the US-led coalition on the group´s positions in Syria since last week and in Iraq since early August.

Who’ll be the next attorney general? Washington’s favorite parlor game is filling Cabinet vacancies; I like playing as much as the next pundit. (Keep reading!) Still, the more telling question is: Why are we playing this game at all? Why wasn’t the White House, which knew for months that Eric H. Holder Jr. was itching to leave, ready to roll with a successor? More important, given Holder’s foot inching toward the door, why did it not time this departure more intelligently — rather than having it arrive just before an election and the prospect of Democrats losing control of the Senate?

Cover Oregon was supposed to be a shining example of ObamaCare at its best. The state insurance exchange for the state of Oregon received $300 million in federal grants to launch a state-of-the-art website. But it never worked, and not a single Oregonian was able to sign up for health care from start to finish. So now, Oregon is in the process of pulling the plug on the site and switching over to the federal exchange and HealthCare.gov -- but the question is, how quickly they can do it. “We need to move forward and do the best thing for the people of Oregon,” Republican State Sen. Tim Knopp said, “and I think that’s ending Cover Oregon as

A man with a gun that the Secret Service did not know about rode in an elevator with President Obama during his visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta on Sept. 16. The previously undisclosed breach, confirmed by two sources familiar with the case, raises new questions about the agency´s ability to protect the president. The incident, which took place three days before an intruder jumped a fence and sprinted inside the White House, involved a failure in Secret Service advance work to prevent an armed man from coming into close proximity with Obama while he was visiting the CDC to receive a

Washington - The Obama Administration announced Tuesday that it will pick up the bill for immigration attorneys who will be assigned to unaccompanied children from Central America and elsewhere who are stopped at the U.s. border. Dallas and Houston are two of a handful of cities where the money will be spent, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said in a phone call to The News Tuesday. The program starts today and will be funded with $9 million between now and the end of the next fiscal year. In all, the funds are estimated to be enough to pay for lawyers for more than 2,600 children.

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

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.

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. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

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
