Stop The Scott Walker Scandal Talk, Stop The Hillary Clinton Rape Scandal Talk, Stop The IRS Scandal Talk, Stop The Immigration Scandal Talk – Just Stop!!!

Update: Amazing how Republicans/conservatives refuse to see the connection between the Hillary rape story lies and the Scott Walker smears by partisan left wing creeps. We see the connection. Greta Van Susteren sees the connection:

WORST REPORTING OF THE WEEK: about REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER AND DEMOCRAT HILLARY CLINTON [snip]

If they did original reporting, the would know that yes, the prosecutor in Wisconsin in a document accused Governor Scott Walker of a crime (that is common and routine for a prosecutor) BUT OBVIOUSLY THE PROSECUTOR DID NOT TAKE IT SERIOUSLY SINCE NEVER CHARGED HIM WITH A CRIME. That is a HUGE difference – accusing v. charging. If the prosecutor thought Walker committed a crime, he just had to fill out a paper and charge him. And if he thought Walker committed a crime, it was his job to charge him – but that did not happen. Second, a Federal Judge ruled later that the conduct the prosecutor objected to is not a crime, that the alleged conduct fits within a loophole of the campaign law. That ruling is now on appeal to the US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit but if it is upheld, it means that the prosecutor accused Governor Walker of innocent conduct (conduct that is not illegal.) If it is reversed, then Walker may have trouble but that is not where the facts stand now.

If they did original reporting, they would have read the court file in the Arkansas case (I did) and seen that the affidavit filed by then 27 year old lawyer Hillary Rodham was a routine application for a court ordered psychiatric evaluation of the complainant. It was not Clinton going after the accuser – but rather filing a routine application in her constitutional job to represent a client. Clinton said she had reports about the complainant and wanted the Court to pursue it further with an examination. That’s routine. Second, if they did original reporting, they would have LISTENED to the tape and learned that Clinton’s laughter (sarcastic I thought) was about polygraphs and not the complainant or the charge. Like with Governor Scott Walker, this is a big difference. The polygraph occurred when no doubt the client was claiming he was innocent to his lawyer Clinton. Clients do that…insist insist and insist innocence. He took polygraph and passed. He then later pleaded guilty and admitted his guilt …to his lawyer Clinton and then in court at the plea…..hence the polygraph remark by Clinton.

Facts matter.

Lying hypocrites of the left have a great deal in common, more so than with us, with lying hypocrites of the right. The Sunni Right and the Shiitty Left should shut up.

Republicans/conservatives get extra points for stupidity (1) because they are so politically inept that with all the evidence against Barack Obama and his Chicago thugs they still fail to nail Obama and won’t appoint enough select committees or utilize the inherent power of the House because they prefer to talk, talk, talk; and (2) Republicans conservatives fail to see that as much as they hate Bill and Hillary Clinton the Shiitty Left hates them even more.

Latest proof of the Shiitty Left’s hatred of Bill and Hillary Clinton comes from Salon magazine and the guy who wrote that reprehensible Shiitty Left book “What’s the matter with Kansas?” That book is the guiding light for today’s Shiitty Left and its author hates Bill and Hillary Clinton. He hates the great economic record of Bill Clinton too because it was not Shiitty Left enough. The problem for the Shiitty Left and the Sunni Right when they claim that voters see Hillary as a return to the past is that that is the future voters want for America. The Sunni Right and the Shiitty Left should marry each other, have ugly children, and leave America.

A filthy race-bait attack on Scott Walker published by The New Republic. Disgusting. Scott Walker smeared in that filthy article of innuendo, character assassination, and ugly racial politics. Few in Big Media attacked this anti-Scott Walker filth. Some on the right in the name of justice defended Scott Walker against the feces shat by The New Republic/em>.

But that was not enough anti-Scott Walker hate for Big Media. Scott Walker is once again smeared by Big Media. Big Media quoting unscrupulous prosecutors charged Scott Walker with being at the “center of a criminal scheme”. But in all this Scott Walker is the victim of politically motivated prosecutors twisting the law for their nefarious ideological ends:

This is a true story: in 2012, Democratic district attorneys in Wisconsin launched a secret probe known as a John Doe investigation with the goal of proving that conservative groups illegally coordinated activities during Gov. Scott Walker’s recall election. They issued more than 100 subpoenas, demanded the private information of conservatives and conservative groups, and actually conducted secret raids. And under state law, individuals who were targeted or witness to the investigation were forbidden from making knowledge of it public.

Fortunately, judges saw right through this partisan abuse of power. Early this year, a state judge, ruling in a secret proceeding, quashed the subpoenas and all but ended the investigation. [snip]

In February, a conservative activist and group filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the partisan district attorneys who had pursued the John Doe probe. In short order, a federal district court judge held that the plaintiffs “are likely to succeed on their claim that the defendants‘ investigation violates their rights under the First Amendment, such that the investigation was commenced and conducted ―without a reasonable expectation of obtaining a valid conviction.” [snip]

Most recently, that appeals court has ordered some of the previously secret probe documents disclosed to the public, including an unsuccessful defense that the John Doe investigators made to one of their secret subpoenas. In their attempt to get a subpoena, which was rejected by a judge for lacking probable cause, the partisan investigators claimed that Walker was involved in the so-called conservative conspiracy.

To summarize, a politically motivated and harmful investigation by partisan prosecutors victimized Governor Scott Walker and his supporters. Big Media reported these facts to mean that Scott Walker was guilty of criminal activity. Big Media published the failed lies of prosecutors and willfully ignored that Scott Walker and his supporters were the victims of the failed lies.



Like Scott Walker, Hillary Clinton is also fighting a smear. This idiocy is mostly confined to Sean Hannity and the Washington Free Beacon. The “scandal” is that Hillary, as a very young lawyer, defended a rapist, a child rapist at that. This is supposed to show that Hillary hates children or something or is insincere or something.

This Hillary Clinton rape scandal was examined in the past repeatedly and used against her politically repeatedly. Now the story is revived because the Washington Free Beacon, to its journalistic credit (now if they would only go talk to Rezko), found an audio tape of a young Hillary Clinton discussing the long-ago case.

A CNN panel denounced Hillary and some few Republican/conservative websites are trying to get some mileage from the audio tape. Now the Hillary Clinton rape scandal has a new angle due to the rape victim saying some very angry things against Hillary Clinton:

The victim, whose name has been withheld in the media, spoke with the Daily Beast. The interview appears to have occurred after the conservative website The Free Beacon on Sunday published audio tapes from the 1980s in which Clinton discussed the case with a reporter. In those tapes, Clinton seemed to suggest she thought her client, Thomas Alfred Taylor, was guilty of the crime that he was not convicted of committing. [snip]

“Hillary Clinton took me through hell,” the victim told the Daily Beast, adding that she would confront Clinton if she had the chance to speak with her.

“I would say [to Clinton], ‘You took a case of mine in ‘75, you lied on me… I realize the truth now, the heart of what you’ve done to me,” she said. “And you are supposed to be for women? You call that [being] for women, what you done to me? And I hear you on tape laughing.”

The above excerpt is by Maggie Haberman who is not to be trusted in anything. If Haberman says Hillary ate lunch on June 20, 2014, check to be sure Hillary lunched because Haberman makes things up about Hillary Clinton all the time. Here’s the audio of Hillary talking about 1975 when Hillary was 27 years old:



So what happened in 1975? Maggie Haberman could have asked her fellow Hillary hater at Politico, Glenn Thrush, but she must have been in too much of a rush to smear Hillary. Here is the hit piece then Newsday reporter Glenn Thrush wrote in 2008 about what the rape victim said and why Hillary defended an alleged rapist of a child:

In May 1975, Washington County prosecutor Mahlon Gibson called Rodham, who had taken over the law clinic months earlier, to tell her she’d been appointed to represent a hard-drinking factory worker named Thomas Alfred Taylor, who had requested a female attorney.

In her 2003 autobiography “Living History,” Clinton writes that she initially balked at the assignment, but eventually secured a lenient plea deal for Taylor after a New York-based forensics expert she hired “cast doubt on the evidentiary value of semen and blood samples collected by the sheriff’s office.” [snip]

Echoing legal experts, Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson says the senator would have been committing professional misconduct if she hadn’t given Taylor the best defense possible.

“As she wrote in her book, ‘Living History,’ Senator Clinton was appointed by the Circuit Court of Washington County, Arkansas to represent Mr. Taylor in this matter,” he said. “As an attorney and an officer of the court, she had an ethical and legal obligation to defend him to the fullest extent of the law. To act otherwise would have constituted a breach of her professional responsibilities.” [snip]

“She was vigorously advocating for her client. What she did was appropriate,” said Andrew Schepard, director of Hofstra Law School’s Center for Children, Families and the Law. [snip]

With all the anguish she’d felt over the case in the years since, there was one thing she never realized – that the lawyer for the man she reviles was none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton.

I have to understand that she was representing Taylor,” she said when interviewed in prison last fall. “I’m sure Hillary was just doing her job.

One would think a responsible reporter in 2014 would note for readers that in 2008 the alleged victim said “I’m sure Hillary was just doing her job.” Indeed Hillary was doing her job. Maybe Haberman or Thrush hire lawyers to represent them on the basis of doing the worse job possible but most people want the best legal representation, not the worse.

In 1975 Hillary was 27 years old and just appointed to run the University of Arkansas Law School legal aid clinic. Hillary fully expected to eventually return to work with Marian Wright Edelman on children issues. But first she was forced to represent an accused rapist:

Taylor, 41, figured a jury would be less hostile to a rape defendant represented by a woman, according to one of his friends. Cummings agreed to the request, scanned the list of available female attorneys (there were only a half dozen in the county at the time) and assigned Rodham, who had virtually no experience in criminal litigation.

Hillary told me she didn’t want to take that case, she made that very clear,” recalls prosecutor Gibson, who phoned her with the judge’s order.

I didn’t feel comfortable taking on such a client, but Mahlon gently reminded me that I couldn’t very well refuse the judge’s request,” the eventual first lady writes in “Living History.” [snip]

Gibson (who is not related to prosecutor Mahlon Gibson) had no illusions about how hard the case would be to prove, because the girl seemed to have a romantic interest in the 15-year-old. [snip]

“Taylor was alleged to have raped this girl in a car right near a very busy highway – I told her it seems sort of improbable and she immediately agreed,” said Baker, who remembered Rodham as “smart, capable and very focused.” [snip]

Prosecution case crumbles [snip]

By the fall of 1975, the prosecution’s case was crumbling under pressure from Rodham and other factors relating to the evidence and the witnesses. [snip]

In 2005, while working in a laundry, the victim stole several hundred dollars worth of checks from her boss to buy drugs. She is now living in a halfway house and looking for work.

Despite these problems, she bears Hillary Rodham Clinton no ill will and was eager to read “Living History” – at least pages 72 and 73, which contain her case.

We left out most of the details of this convoluted case loaded with witness lies and a difficult to prove crime because no one seemed to be sure if the alleged victim had consensual sex with a boy or raped by an older man. Add to all this the results of the lie detector test Hillary discusses in the audio tape and the smear of Hillary laughing at a rape falls apart.

What Haberman and other Hillary haters term ‘Hillary laughing because she got a rapist free’ appears more to us as a very young lawyer on her first criminal case beginning to realize that things are often not as they seem. Was Hillary’s laugh a decade later chagrin as she recalled herself as a young lawyer realizing that a lie detector cannot be trusted to detect lies from a man she believed to be guilty or was Hillary’s incredulous laugh a decade later a way to convey that what others saw as brilliant legal work on her part was actually very easy once you added an exculpatory polygraph test result to the other overwhelming evidence (and lost underwear/semen evidence by the prosecutor) in favor of her client? But to say Hillary Clinton laughed at the plight of a rape victim a decade later is not believable.

Some are alleging that Hillary supporters do not want “the Hillary tapes” heard by the American public and distorting the facts to claim that Hillary was not forced by appointment to defend the alleged criminal. Hells bells, we do. Here, listen again. Check out that last part with Hillary laughing because the prosecutor won’t discuss evidence in the rape trial with a lady present and listen as Hillary incredulously laughs that that really could have happened and how she stood her ground. Here listen again:



We love listening to Hillary with her southern accent. But we do think this rape scandal story is just stupid. Stop it. Stop smearing Scott Walker. Stop smearing Hillary Clinton.

We have other items on our “stop it” list. IRS scandal talk is all over our TV. We’re sick of it. Here’s “Wisconsin nice” Paul Ryan with his pretty blue eyes boring the Hell out of us about the IRS:



Gee willikers what rage! Quelle horreur! Weez shur nuff be
skered now. Not. This display is not as scary as a Girl Scout demanding money from a delinquent cookie customer. But from the coverage we’ve seen you would think this was a volcanic eruption. It wasn’t. It was just talk. Talk, talk, talk. To be followed by more talk, talk, talk.

The scumbag IRS commissioner tells Congress the agency owes no apologies and what do we get from Congress – talk.

Talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk, talk….

Cut the crap Congress. Cut the crap Republicans. Stop it. Cut the crap. You know what to do. Special prosecutor. Select committee.

Hillary Clinton told you this is a scandal during her interview on Fox News. Appoint a G_d damn select committee and demand a special prosecturo or shut up. Do something about this outrage or shut up. Stop it. Stop the bu*lshit posturing and do what you have to do.

Same goes with this immigration crap. Stop it. Do something or shut up. And by “do something” we don’t mean “immigration reform”. We mean a select committee investigation. We mean a special prosecutor.

From now on any and all Obama scandals should automatically trigger a special select committee and demands for a special prosecutor. If you can’t do that just shut up. Shut up! Stop the posturing nonsense.

Republicans in Congress know they have to power to save the nation. Eric Holder at the corrupt Justice Department is doing everything to protect Barack Obama. Barack Obama will break all the laws he wants. Congress has the power to stop this. Congressional Republicans know they have the power but rather posture than do what they must do to save the nation.

The inherent power of Congress must be used by Republicans to save the nation or they should shut up.

Hillary Clinton has given Republicans the green light to go after Barack Obama on the IRS and on Immigration. The public is against Barack Obama too, even on what was supposed to be his strong suit of immigration.

Get up off your lazy bloomin’ arses and get the job done.

  1. Pig Chris Matthews surprisingly is tired of Elizabeth Warren and tells her to put up or shut up. Something is up with Matthews lately.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2014/06/chris-matthews-elizabeth-warren-testy-liberal-priorities-108112.html?hp=r3

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews took on Sen. Elizabeth Warren, demanding to know why the Democratic Senate and White House have failed to make progress on infrastructure and other liberal priorities.

    Matthews, a liberal commentator, engaged in a testy exchange with the Massachusetts Democrat on his program Thursday evening, saying that the senator has not been able to live up to her rhetoric on passing progressive legislation.

    “I’m telling you, I don’t hear you getting it done,” Matthews said of certain liberal priorities, including bolstering labor rights. “The Democrats control the U.S. Senate. The Democrats control the White House. When are you going to do what you just said you’d like to do? Just when? Give me a date. Is it 2017, 2023?”

    “No, it’s now. It’s now,” Warren said as the two talked over each other.

    “It isn’t now,” Matthews said.

    “Stop this,” Warren said. “We just voted on this last week. You stop and think about it.”

    The heated back-and-forth showed a visibly agitated Matthews challenging Warren, the progressive first-term senator who has emerged as a major star among liberal circles. Some Democrats have urged her to run for president in 2016, though she has said many times that she isn’t running.

    On Thursday, Warren proceeded to blame congressional Republicans for blocking legislation on education funding, research for the National Institutes of Health and infrastructure and grid projects. In particular, the senator castigated Senate Republicans for shooting down her bill that would allow students to refinance their student loan debt. The bill, the Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act, failed to get the 60 votes necessary for consideration on the Senate floor.

    But a visibly agitated Matthews stuck to his criticism of Warren and other Senate Democrats for their failure to pass legislation.

    “You’re blaming it on the Republicans, but you control the Senate and you control the White House,” he said.

  5. No wonder Hillary and Bill look like the only intelligent people in politics.

    Idiots are the majority on the news, in Congress and in the WH.

  6. Given that the alleged rapist passed a lie detector test, the crime lab bungled the key piece of evidence, and all this happened in 1975 (before the general public or even the experts knew much about child sex abuse), no jury would have put this guy away for very long, even if his lawyer had been the puh-puh-public defender from “My Cousin Vinny.”

    Agreed.

    As someone that watched/listened to the OJ trial, every court date…it reminds me of that trial, in that it was pretty obvious OJ killed his wife and Ron Goldman, but the case was lost, in my mind when the cops bungled the evidence, putting bags in their car trunk instead of secured custody. The cops blundered time after time and seemed to be so interested in OJ the public figure, that they did not do justice to Nicole and Ron.

    How can a lawyer prove a case with bad evidence?

  10. The House finally did something right, now will the Dims in the Senate step up and keep American privacy part of our constitution???

    The House of Representatives may have only passed a puny attempt to reform the NSA’s surveillance activities last month. But on Thursday evening it swung back with a surprising attack on a key element of the agency’s spying programs: their funding.

    In a late night session, the House of Representatives voted 293 to 123 to pass an amendment to a Department of Defense appropriations bill that would cut off all funds for two of the agency’s most embattled activities: First, using the 702 provision of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to perform searches of collected surveillance data that target Americans, and second, asking hardware markers and software developers to build backdoors into their tools designed to give the agency access to users’ communications. On that second count, the amendment specifically forbids funding for any agency attempt “to mandate or request that a person redesign its product or service to facilitate…electronic surveillance.”

    Both of those funding bans represent a clear reaction against behavior revealed from the leaks of Edward Snowden, which have shown over the past year that the NSA subverted cryptography standards, diverted hardware shipments to plant bugs in products, and found other ways to gather raw communication data from Silicon Valley firms like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, and others.

    Though the amendment’s bans still haven’t been mirrored in the Senate, the House vote nonetheless sends “an unambiguous statement that there’s political will to do something about the issue of unchecked NSA spying,” says Parker Higgins, an activist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which supported a campaign to persuade citizens to call their congressman in support of the amendment. “This is not a trivial thing. These surveillance programs need money to survive. Without it there are hard questions ahead for the NSA.”

  11. Maybe we can get the Pope to become Speaker of the House because the Pope walks the walk, talks the talk, and kicks Mafia butt:

    http://news.yahoo.com/mafiosi-excommunicated-pope-says-151122053.html;_ylt=AwrBJR_AsaVTY1QAwG7QtDMD

    SIBARI Italy (Reuters) – Pope Francis on Saturday took on one of Italy’s most dangerous organised crime groups, calling it an example of “the adoration of evil” and saying Mafiosi “are excommunicated“.

    The pope, speaking about the ‘Ndrangheta crime group during a mass in the southern Italy, issued the strongest attacks on organised crime since the late Pope John Paul lambasted the Sicilian Mafia in 1993.

    Those who in their lives follow this path of evil, as mafiosi do, are not in communion with God. They are excommunicated,” Pope Francis said in impromptu comments at a mass before tens of thousands of people.

    He told the crowd: “This evil must be fought against, it must be pushed aside. We must say no to it.”

    He branded the ‘Ndrangheta as the “adoration of evil and contempt of the common good” and said the Church would exert its full force in efforts to combat organised crime.

    “Our children are asking for it, our young people are asking for it. They are in need of hope and faith can help respond to this need,” he said.

    Excommunication is like a special prosecutor, impeachment, trial, conviction, execution, combined.

  12. More special prosecutors needed, more select committees needed, put them in the jail in the basement of the Capitol:

    http://washingtonexaminer.com/examiner-editorial-federal-agency-cant-hide-exploding-cost-of-refurbishing-its-hq/article/2549751

    Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Director Richard Cordray evidently is feeling unfamiliar heat after resorting to a disreputable form of sophistry as a substitute for honest discussion and debate. During a June 10 hearing of the Senate Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee, for example, Cordray responded to a question from Sen. Mike Johanns, R-Neb., on the ballooning cost of CFPB’s headquarters renovation by saying: “This has been out there and taken as gospel in the public record for some time. It’s a fiction of the Washington Examiner that this project started out at $55 million and now has ballooned to higher proportions. There never was any expectation that this project could be completed for $55 million. That is false.”

    Cordray, the former Ohio Attorney General, was straw-manning, an evasion tactic known and loved by professional politicians, double-talking bureaucrats and courtroom sophists everywhere. Instead of answering a question truthfully, the fast-talking practitioner erects a straw man that is easily demolished. In this case, the straw man is Cordray’s invention of a mythical claim by the Examiner that “this project could be completed for $55 million.” Simply put, the Examiner never made that claim. [snip]

    The projected cost total of $55 million came from the Office of Thrift Supervision, the previous occupant of the CFPB’s headquarters. Members of the House Financial Services Committee have also demanded but not received answers for several years on why that total has more than doubled to $139 million.

    http://www.politico.com/story/2014/03/consumer-financial-protection-bureau-investigation-105154.html

    An internal investigation at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau last year concluded that an agency supervisor allowed an employee to be harassed by colleagues, a symbol of what the probe said was a “toxic workplace” in one part of the agency.

    The probe, denounced by the agency itself as biased and based on anonymous sources, is likely to fuel Republican efforts to restructure the consumer agency, created by the 2010 Dodd-Frank law enacted after the 2008 financial crisis. [snip]

    “I found that the general environment in Consumer Response is one of exclusion, retaliation, discrimination, nepotism, demoralization, devaluation, and other offensive working conditions which constitute a toxic workplace for many of its employees,” Investigator Misty Raucci will say in her opening remarks.

    http://hotair.com/archives/2014/06/21/consumer-financial-protection-bureau-already-sinking-into-scandal/

    This is only one of many, many, many reports on the abuses taking place in the agency, highlighted in particular by one whistle blower from their own ranks. A whistle blower who, by the way, they tried to shut down themselves.

    This is a new agency and already it is mired in Chicago style filth of cronies and nepotism. The agency refuses to cooperate with congressional investigators and denies there are problems. Thanks Elizabeth Warren.

  13. Want to know why we don’t believe these talk, talk, talk, talkers? John Boner wants American troops sent to the Mexican border. Do you know why though? Here:

    http://hotair.com/archives/2014/06/20/its-time-to-deploy-the-national-guard-to-the-southern-border-says-john-boehner/

    It’s time to deploy the National Guard to the southern border, says … John Boehner?

    He wants the National Guard there not to intercept illegals coming across but to essentially babysit the younger ones who’ve already made it so that the Border Patrol can go back to intercepting people. [snip]

    The safety of these migrant children is a matter of paramount importance. It is our duty and obligation to enforce the laws of our country while protecting the most vulnerable and ensuring they are healthy and well protected. In that vein, your administration should immediately deploy the National Guard to our southern border. The National Guard is uniquely qualified to respond to such humanitarian crises. They are able to help deal with both the needs of these children and families as well as relieve the border patrol to focus on their primary duty of securing our border. [snip]

    Exit question: If Boehner really cared about border security, now would be a fine time to enact a “security first” bill in the House providing the Border Patrol with more resources, no? The head of the BP’s union says the crisis is now so bad down south that “de facto amnesty is here.” Illegals are being shipped east because border authorities simply don’t have the facilities to house all of them where they’re caught. That’s fertile ground for Boehner to act, if he’s serious about this. Harry Reid will kill the bill in the Senate, but that’s fine. The GOP can use that to attack red-state Dems this fall. So why hasn’t Boehner introduced anything yet?

    Ugh! Despise them all.

    The Dept of Homeland Security has been trying to get assorted staff from other agencies down there. They are not finding many takers. Second hand story has it that some Americorps staff was sent and told they were going to be used as counselors and recreation workers for kids. When they got there the BP told them to clean the toilets and various other janitorial duties. These young Americorps folks decided they were sick and needed to go home. DHS also tried to lease facilities in Texas to house the hordes. They have been consistently told no for several reasons. Disease, wear and tear, they won’t give an ending date, but the main reason is many facilities are already dubbed state evacuation sites for hurricanes that must be available in case of coastal storm evacuation. Remember that Texas was the largest evacuation location for Katrina and we have large coastal storms also. Now they are going to other states who don’t want them either. They are even trying to lease hotels in NY state.

  18. Go Get ’em, Admin! Great post!

    Hi Jen, good to see you, and thanks for the info.

    Sean Hannity is an ignorant, egocentric, joke, and a liar. I would so love to see Hillary take him on – one on one. She would chew him up and spit him out in a hot second. I despise his sanctimonious attitude. Always talking about Christian values on which country was founded, implying that he and his conservative followers have the market cornered on God. I wasn’t aware that lying was a Christian value.

    Shadow, I loved that episode of Sopranos, especially the scene in which Paulie talks to the priest. Man, that was a good TV show.

    ‘We did not know’: 9 times the Obama administration was blindsided

    Published June 19, 2014

    The unfolding sectarian violence in Iraq is just the latest crisis where the Obama administration seemingly has been caught off guard. From the Veterans Affairs scandal to Russia’s swift annexation of Crimea, news of the world somehow keeps taking the commander-in-chief and his team by surprise.

    The following is a refresher of major domestic and foreign policy developments that, apparently, were news to the White House.

    1. Islamist militants gaining in Iraq

    AP

    The New Yorker (1/27/2014): “In the 2012 campaign, Obama spoke not only of killing Osama bin Laden; he also said that Al Qaeda had been ‘decimated.’ I pointed out that the flag of Al Qaeda is now flying in Fallujah, in Iraq, and among various rebel factions in Syria; Al Qaeda has asserted a presence in parts of Africa, too.

    ‘The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,’ Obama said, resorting to an uncharacteristically flip analogy. ‘I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.'”

    The Wall Street Journal (6/11/2014): Iraq Drama Catches US Off Guard

    2. Russia’s intervention in Ukraine

    AP

    Politico.com (3/4/14): “A White House spokeswoman declined to comment on whether Obama was satisfied with the intelligence he received on Russian intentions in Ukraine. But spokesmen for the U.S. intelligence community defended its work.

    The Central Intelligence Agency says it’s always noted the possibility of aggressive military action.

    ‘Prior to and throughout the situation in Ukraine, the intelligence community has provided timely and valuable information that has helped policy makers understand the situation on the ground and make informed decisions. That continues to be the case today,’ said Shawn Turner, a spokesman for Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. ‘Any suggestion that there were intelligence shortcomings related to the situation in Ukraine are uninformed and misleading.’

    … While officials appear to disagree about the insights offered by U.S. intelligence, it’s beyond dispute that a lot of public commentary pundits offered as the Ukraine crisis unfolded was less than clairvoyant.”

    3. NSA spying on foreign leaders

    AP

    Wall Street Journal (10/28/2013): “Obama was unaware for the last 5 years, the NSA had been spying on German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other members of world leaders. Only after an internal Obama administration review in 2013 did the White House know of the spying.”

    President Obama news conference with Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan (5/16/2013): “I can assure you that I certainly did not know anything about the I.G. report before the I.G. report had been leaked through press — through the press.”

    4. VA waiting list scandal

    AP

    Jay Carney during a White House press briefing (5/19/2014):

    JIM ACOSTA, CNN: “When was the president first made aware of these problems? Of these fraudulent lists that were being kept to hide the wait times, when was he first made aware of those problems? And when did other White House officials, top White House officials, become aware of these problems?”

    JAY CARNEY: “When you say these problems, the fact that there have been bureaucracies –”

    ACOSTA: “The delays have been known for some time.”

    CARNEY: “You mean the specific allegations that I think were reported first by your news network out of Phoenix, I believe. We learned about them through the reports. I will double check if that is not the case. But that is when we learned about them and that is when I understand Secretary Shinseki learned about them, and he immediately took the action that he has taken.”

    5. IRS targeting scandal

    AP

    President Obama in a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Cameron (May 13, 2013): “Well, let me take the IRS situation first. I first learned about it from the same news reports that I think most people learned about this. I think it was on Friday.”

    6. HealthCare.gov failing

    Reuters

    Remarks by President Obama on HealthCare.gov (10/21/2013): “Of course, you’ve probably heard that HealthCare.gov — the new website where people can apply for health insurance and browse and buy affordable plans in most states — hasn’t worked as smoothly as it was supposed to work. And the number of people who visit the site has been overwhelming which has aggravated some of these underlying problems.”

    Jay Carney during a White House press briefing (10/23/2013): “While we knew that there would be some glitches and actually said publicly that we expected some problems, we did not know until the problems manifested themselves after the launch that they would be as significant as they have turned out to be.”

    7. DOJ obtaining AP phone records

    AP

    Jay Carney during a White House press briefing (5/14/2013):

    QUESTION: “When did the president find out about the Department of Justice’s subpoenas for the Associated Press?”

    CARNEY: “Yesterday. Let me just be clear. We don’t have any independent knowledge of that. He found out about the news reports yesterday on the road.”

    QUESTION: “What was his reaction to that? Does he believe that this was an overreach?”

    CARNEY: “All I can tell you is that I cannot and he cannot comment specifically on an ongoing criminal investigation or actions that investigators at the Department of Justice may or may not have taken. It would be wholly inappropriate. And if we did comment on it, or if we did have insight into it, you would appropriately ask why and is that correct procedure, because it would not be.”

    8. Fast and Furious scandal

    AP

    Jay Carney during a White House press briefing (6/27/2012): “The president did not know about this tactic until he heard about it through the media; the attorney general did not know about it.”

    9. Air Force One flyover in Manhattan

    Reuters

    President Obama during media availability on arrival at FBI headquarters (4/28/2009):

    QUESTION: “Sir, what do think of the Air Force One incident –”

    THE PRESIDENT: “No — no questions –”

    QUESTION: “– over New York City yesterday, sir?”

    QUESTION: “Are you concerned about New York City yesterday, sir, with the Air Force plane?”

    THE PRESIDENT: “It was a mistake, as was — as was stated. It was something we found out about along with all of you and it will not happen again. Thank you.”

    For whatever reason, God someone has to!

  22. Question of the day: Does the IRS use/*still* use Sonasoft to back up its archives?

    RESIZE: AAA

    Because the IRS apparently did use Sonasoft, once:

    The IRS reportedly used a private company to back up emails, a new report claims. The company is called Sonasoft, which boasts, “Email Archiving Done Right.”

    “The IRS had a contract with email backup service vendor Sonasoft starting in 2005, according to FedSpending.org, which lists the contract as being for ‘automatic data processing services.’ Sonasoft’s motto is ‘email archiving done right,’ and the company lists the IRS as a customer,” Reason magazine reports.

    There’s also a tweet from 2009 from the company that would, ahem, back this up:

    Now, this is not necessarily proof that Sonasoft has the IRS archives in handy subpoena form. The company might not have that contract with the IRS; in fact, it might never have had that contract, and is just engaged in the traditional game of Let’s inflate our customer list! But under the circumstances I think that it’s a perfectly reasonable question to bring back John Koskinen under oath and ask his smirk whether the IRS actually uses this company, whether they still do – and why it took an independent news agency to unearth information that should have been voluntarily provided at the beginning.

    I believe that they call this sort of thing ‘due diligence.’ And it’s something that Koskinen legitimately should have done from the start; any kind of competent investigation would have clearly revealed this possible connection (because, after all, a competent investigation did) and the IRS should have been the first group to look into it. If John Koskinen doesn’t even know whether his organization used a third-party backup service, what exactly is he doing over there?

    Besides covering up the President’s mistakes, of course.

  23. The reason why the elites protect this jamoke while he is tearing down the world is because it isn’t THEIR world he is tearing down.

  24. The elites are more concerned with the Tea Party, which represents a core of resistance against their privilege and imperious rule, than they are with Muslim terrorists. That is not a theory. It is a known fact. Jindal–who has never impressed me–is now saying that Washington is facing a hostile take over from the American People. As usual, Bobby has his wires crossed. The elites have engineered a hostile take over of the American People, as we see in the telling slip of the tongue by John Dingleberry former Dean of the House: it will take us (meaning the political class) time to get the American People under control. In so stating he speaks for the uniparty. That is precisely what they are doing. And when they tell us this is for their own good, I am reminded of the quote by Camus: the welfare of the people is always the alibi of tyrants, and in this instance, it is also cover for the elites to make money off some new social program.

  25. In other words, there is a dual motive behind any new program. There is of course the ego of the upper class, who hopes to prove that they are morally and intellectually superior to the rest of us, in believing the country is better off being ruled by the faculty of Harvard Law School, than by the first 200 names in the Brooklyn phone directory. But there is also a crony capitalist money making motive, to feed like pigs at the public trough.

    So true!!! 👿

  27. Interesting….

    Der spiegel reported that Nato may withdraw the Dutch & German patriot missiles defending Turkey.

    Is this a defensive issue in case of unrest hitting Turkey also….or at fury at Turkey’s involvement with this mess.

  28. Update: Amazing how Republicans/conservatives refuse to see the connection between the Hillary rape story lies and the Scott Walker smears by partisan left wing creeps. We see the connection. Greta Van Susteren sees the connection:

    WORST REPORTING OF THE WEEK: about REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER AND DEMOCRAT HILLARY CLINTON [snip]

    If they did original reporting, the would know that yes, the prosecutor in Wisconsin in a document accused Governor Scott Walker of a crime (that is common and routine for a prosecutor) BUT OBVIOUSLY THE PROSECUTOR DID NOT TAKE IT SERIOUSLY SINCE NEVER CHARGED HIM WITH A CRIME. That is a HUGE difference – accusing v. charging. If the prosecutor thought Walker committed a crime, he just had to fill out a paper and charge him. And if he thought Walker committed a crime, it was his job to charge him – but that did not happen. Second, a Federal Judge ruled later that the conduct the prosecutor objected to is not a crime, that the alleged conduct fits within a loophole of the campaign law. That ruling is now on appeal to the US Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit but if it is upheld, it means that the prosecutor accused Governor Walker of innocent conduct (conduct that is not illegal.) If it is reversed, then Walker may have trouble but that is not where the facts stand now.

    If they did original reporting, they would have read the court file in the Arkansas case (I did) and seen that the affidavit filed by then 27 year old lawyer Hillary Rodham was a routine application for a court ordered psychiatric evaluation of the complainant. It was not Clinton going after the accuser – but rather filing a routine application in her constitutional job to represent a client. Clinton said she had reports about the complainant and wanted the Court to pursue it further with an examination. That’s routine. Second, if they did original reporting, they would have LISTENED to the tape and learned that Clinton’s laughter (sarcastic I thought) was about polygraphs and not the complainant or the charge. Like with Governor Scott Walker, this is a big difference. The polygraph occurred when no doubt the client was claiming he was innocent to his lawyer Clinton. Clients do that…insist insist and insist innocence. He took polygraph and passed. He then later pleaded guilty and admitted his guilt …to his lawyer Clinton and then in court at the plea…..hence the polygraph remark by Clinton.

    Facts matter.

    Lying hypocrites of the left have a great deal in common, more so than with us, with lying hypocrites of the right. The Sunni Right and the Shiitty Left should shut up.

    Republicans/conservatives get extra points for stupidity (1) because they are so politically inept that with all the evidence against Barack Obama and his Chicago thugs they still fail to nail Obama and won’t appoint enough select committees or utilize the inherent power of the House because they prefer to talk, talk, talk; and (2) Republicans conservatives fail to see that as much as they hate Bill and Hillary Clinton the Shiitty Left hates them even more.

    Latest proof of the Shiitty Left’s hatred of Bill and Hillary Clinton comes from Salon magazine and the guy who wrote that reprehensible Shiitty Left book “What’s the matter with Kansas?” That book is the guiding light for today’s Shiitty Left and its author hates Bill and Hillary Clinton. He hates the great economic record of Bill Clinton too because it was not Shiitty Left enough. The problem for the Shiitty Left and the Sunni Right when they claim that voters see Hillary as a return to the past is that that is the future voters want for America. The Sunni Right and the Shiitty Left should marry each other, have ugly children, and leave America.

  29. Regarding immigration, health care, welfare, education, drug policy and more, Obama has suspended, waived and rewritten laws, including the Affordable Care Act. It required the employer mandate to begin this year. But Obama wrote a new law, giving to companies of a certain size a delay until 2016 and stipulating that other employers must certify they will not drop employees to avoid the mandate. Doing so would trigger criminal perjury charges; so he created a new crime, that of adopting a business practice he opposes.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/longtime-congressman-rangel-finds-himself-in-political-peril-in-new-york-primary/2014/06/19/4551b960-f58d-11e3-8aa9-dad2ec039789_story.html

    Through immigration and redistricting, what is now New York’s 13th Congressional District — a seat Rangel has held since 1971 and viewed as the center of New York’s modern black political power structure — has experienced a seismic demographic shift from majority black to majority Hispanic.

    Hoping to seize on those demographics as well as the perception of Rangel’s waning political power in the years since Congress formally censured him in 2010 for ethics violations, state Sen. Adriano Espaillat is mounting a spirited challenge to the 22-term incumbent — a rematch of the 2012 race in which Rangel topped Espaillat by just 1,000 votes. [snip]

    In recent years, Rangel’s district has been recarved, turning what has for years been a majority-black district into one that is 52 percent Hispanic and adding new parts of the Bronx where Rangel is not as well-known or as well-regarded. [snip]

    On Wednesday, the New York Times editorial board endorsed Espaillat:

    “After a humiliating censure by Congress four years ago for failing to pay taxes and other ethical lapses, Representative Charles Rangel has steadily lost power in Washington. After nearly 44 years in office, it is now time for him to yield to the next generation.”

    John Samuelsen, president of the Transit Workers Union Local 100, said: “Everybody is tired of Rangel. We need a champion that will stand up for us. That’s not Charlie Rangel.” The union has said Rangel has not done enough to bring federal money to the district to fund transit worker jobs. [snip]

    “It’s a 44-year incumbent who is going negative now, at this point in the race,” said Jesse Campoamor, Espaillat’s campaign manager. “It’s a sign of desperation.”

    A New York Times/NY1/Siena College poll in late May showed Rangel with the backing of 41 percent of likely voters — including two-thirds of black voters — and Espaillat pulling 32 percent, with the support of more than half of the district’s Hispanic voters.

    But Rangel has been resilient, driving the campaign narrative in the race’s closing weeks and increasing his lead as the race enters its final days.

    He was 13 percentage points ahead in the latest poll, an NY1/Siena College survey that measured him at 47 percent support compared with Espaillat’s 34 percent. The poll found Rangel with a commanding 76 percent among black voters vs. Espaillat’s 6 percent, while Espaillat was ahead 53 percent to 29 percent among Latino voters.

  33. Here in a border, Dimocratic state like California, the biggest gang wars are when the Histanics try to move into the established, black neighborhoods.

    The more they pour over the borders, the worse it gets.

    Even worse, the guns and drugs are smuggled in with them while the idiots in the State Congress are too busy spending our tax dollars to care.

  34. Maybe Hillary should have skipped the book? Seems like it is not getting well received and giving far left more ammunition to promote oppose her again in primary should she run.

  35. jbstone, I think many who reported objectively about the book, or who objectively, without an agenda interviewed Hillary about the book/book tour, allowed the many positive points and honest reflection by Hillary to be revealed. Some on the left, including but not limited to at least two reports we know of from PBS used their interviews with Hillary or their reporting on the tour as an opportunity to grind their progressive axes and attempt to make political hay where there was none to be made.

    One report I heard on NPR (I never even knew who was speaking – a man interviewing a woman, who apparently was just making shit up as she went, said that there was just so much negative stuff in the book. Really? Where? And, that Hillary was repeating the mistakes (acknowledged by Hillary’s aides as mistakes so this prog heifer said) of 2008. Hillary was just not positive enough. Which can be interpreted as – she didn’t kiss O’s ass enough, or maybe uttered an unflattering truth or two about the bozo. Of course he did or said absolutely NOTHING negative about Hillary – nor did his pervert aides who molested a cardboard cutout of Hillary. Freaks!

    As far as the Republicans are concerned, we knew they would go negative. Hillary could pull a child from a burning vehicle and the Right would find fault. They’d claim she was just grandstanding, or that it was really Bill’s love child with Oprah, and Hillary needed the child for her campaign – to prove she wasn’t racist, or something equally absurd and bull-shitty.

    Between the Left and the Right, the anti-Clinton Lefties are far more dangerous. And, as Admin said, they lie as much or more than the Right, and more effectively. People tend to see liberals as nice, but just a little too idealistic – too compassionate and not realistic enough. They think of them as innocent bleeding hearts. I used to think so too, but no more. They are not nice. They are arrogant and condescending, and because they are convinced their way is right and the rest of us are just too stupid to get it, they can easily justify any low-down, lying, dirty trick in the book. They don’t even see their behavior as wrong – because they know what’s best, and they are fighting for the moral high ground, in their not so humble opinions.

    In short, they’re sickening, toxic, and beyond reproach.

  36. Hillary’s book is #1 on the bestseller list. She has people lined up around the block to buy the book and get it signed. By all measures, it has been a success. Since it’s a policy wonky kind of book, it’s not going to bring in the same numbers as if she had written a tell-all book with scandalous anecdotes about the celebrities she has met and where she spills her guts on how she *really* feels about certain individuals. Hillary will never write that kind of book.

  37. Jen

    I agree about the book.

    It seemed important to Hillary to put the choices she made and why out there right away. My guess, it is to start making a sharp divide between herself and Baracko.

    The less speculation about her intentions and reasoning, the better.

    Of course the Kooks want her to be the handmaiden of Obama, and the Rethughs only want more ammo.

    Looks like she didn’t give either what they need.

  38. “Looks like she didn’t give either what they need.”
    _________

    Agreed, Shadow. And, it looks like she doesn’t give a damn about them having what they need. Good for her! She said she wanted to talk about some of the choices she made and describe the complexities of the situations, without worrying about the inevitable parsing of her words by those who wanted to use them against her. She fully understood that this would happen and expected it.

    The anti-Clinton forces on the Left and the Right must be terribly frustrated. No matter how they try to derail Hillary – whether blaming O’s failures on her, bringing up Monica and the mean, nasty things Hillary allegedly said to her ( who the hell wouldn’t?), or this latest effort to slam her for doing her job, honoring her obligation to the court and to the person she was ordered to defend, presuming the accused to be innocent until proven guilty as Americans are called upon to do. – Hillary is still flying high.

    Although some pollsters are doing their best to make it appear as if Hillary’s support is waning and her approval rating is dropping like a stone, this recent article in PuffHo claims that Democrat support for a Hillary 2016 candidacy is nearing 75%. That doesn’t sound like much of a “decline”. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/16/clinton-obama-poll_n_5501160.html.

    Hillary and Bill are without a doubt the most exposed people in political history. Everything about them, their professional lives, their private lives, Bill’s penis and it’s alleged travels has been investigated and reported on. Yet, no matter how the Left or the Right tries to attack Hillary, the public remains supportive of her.

    Insanity is said to be – doing the same thing over and over, and expecting the outcome will change (or something like that), If that’s an accurate definition, there are some truly crazy people on both the left and the right, trying to take down Hillary.

    A new poll from Gallup indicates former U.S. President George W. Bush is six points higher in favorability than U.S. President Barack Obama.

    The poll, the findings of which were released Saturday, show former President Bill Clinton has the highest favorability of all living former and current U.S. presidents, with 64 percent favorable opinion and 34 percent unfavorable.

    Next up was the senior George Bush with a 63 percent favorable opinion and 31 percent unfavorable opinion. The younger Bush had 53 percent favorable and 44 percent unfavorable, Jimmy Carter was at 52 percent favorable and 32 percent unfavorable and finally Obama had 47 percent favorable and 52 percent unfavorable.

    Obama was the only president that had a more unfavorable than favorable opinion.

  44. President Bill Clinton has the highest favorability of all living former and current U.S. presidents, with 64 percent favorable opinion and 34 percent unfavorable.

    But later in his statement, he left the door open to allowing at least some to stay in the U.S. when he said:

    “This is a critical moment for Iraq’s future,” Kerry said Monday, calling for “unity” in the face of a militant force threatening to tear the country apart.

  48. This is something I devoted a chapter 2 in the paper I wrote on Soros in 2009. It was posted here. Now, only five years later, this stuff finds its way into mainstream media. And nobody cared. Nobody listened. They blew it off. Frankly, its like singing to pigs. The only post mortem I can offer is this: to characterize what these left wing billionaires are doing as democracy is depraved. The main effect of their endeavors is to destroy the middle class, and promote a global marketplace where they can grow even richer and indulge their self flattering unction.

    Politico: The vast liberal billionaire conspiracy is for real

    If you think that only Republicans have deep-pocket donors for PACS, your name is increasingly likely to be Harry Reid. Everyone else seems to have figured out that Tom Steyer, George Soros, and plenty of other One Percenters cough up big bucks for progressive candidates and causes, just as the Koch Brothers do for libertarian and free-market causes. Last week, Yahoo’s Matt Bai made it explicit, looking at the inner workings and financing of the Democracy Alliance and its “superrich Democrats.” Today, Politico’s Ken Vogel catches up:

    Picture this: millionaires and billionaires gathering under tight security in fancy hotels with powerful politicians and operatives to plot how their network of secret-money groups can engineer a permanent realignment of American politics.

    Only, it’s not the Koch brothers. It’s the liberal Democracy Alliance.

    The 21 groups at the core of the Democracy Alliance’s portfolio intend to spend $374 million during the midterm election cycle — including nearly $200 million this year — to boost liberal candidates and causes in 2014 and beyond, according to internal documents obtained by POLITICO.
    Vogel emphasizes throughout the piece that the Koch Brothers are in a class by themselves when it comes to fundraising, but that’s only because they’re more adept at it. Progressives pillory the Kochs for their use of money in politics and its supposedly corrupting influence, but Vogel’s report shows that progressives are perhaps more adept at corruption and influence-peddling:

    But the DA document distributed in Chicago does call into question some of the plaintiff [I believe he meant “plaintive” — Ed] woe-is-us rhetoric bandied about by Democrats griping about the Koch brothers’ sophisticated efforts to use their checkbooks to manipulate American democracy.

    Even though the DA’s cash projections pale in comparison to the Koch network, which is in a financial class by itself and rivals the official parties’ spending, they exceed those of most other outside spending operations on the right and left. And, perhaps more significantly, the briefing highlights what liberals believe is superior coordination between its deep-pocketed labor unions, outside groups and even the administration of President Barack Obama that has allowed their side to spend its big money more efficiently than conservatives.
    In other words, while Democrats like Harry Reid shriek about the corrupting influence of conservative money in politics, it’s the deep-pocketed One Percenters on Reid’s side that actually has more corrupt influence on government. That makes Reid’s behavior on the Senate floor look less like principled populism (to the microscopic extent that it looks like that anyway) and a lot more like projection.

    Don’t think that the Democracy Alliance doesn’t know this, either. They attempted to keep reporters from discovering this coordination at their recent Chicago meeting, Vogel reports, in part by passing around pictures of journalists that board members needed to avoid in case they crashed the party. They reminded DA officials not to reveal the names of their members, in order to provide “a comfortable environment for our partners.” Perhaps if they had not engaged in the grossly hypocritical Kochsteria and encouraged it with Reid and other Democrats, their meeting and their membership wouldn’t have been all that newsworthy in the first place.

    Issa: ‘Serious Questions’ Tonight for the IRS Commissioner
    June 23, 2014

    Snip The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will hear testimony from IRS Commissioner John Koskinen in a rare, prime-time hearing Monday night.
    “We have some serious questions for the commissioner,” Committee Chair Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) told Fox News Monday morning. “The biggest one being, you came before us, you said you’d tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, under oath. Do you believe you told the whole truth? Of course, the answer is, he did not tell the whole truth.”snip Tonight’s hearing will be carried live on CSPAN-2, beginning at 7 p.m.snip

  50. If you want to know the cause of the breakdown of our nation, legal system and society, then look no further than big media. An apologist would claim that they are not the problem, but merely a symptom. A realist would say that they are not only the source of the problem, but the key to its cure–if they were honest people, which they most certainly are not. And everyone who is paying close attention knows it. The winter of our discontent is well described in this excerpt from an article by Professor Victor Davis Hansen analyzing the problem in several dimensions:
    ——————
    We live in a deeply diseased society in which we care little about the victim and a great deal about the perpetrators. As the trial continues, we no doubt will soon hear that somehow Mr. Winslow was at fault, that for all the past restrictions and punishments given Ms. Vasquez she did not comply with many if any of them, and that there were probably even more drunk-driving incidents than the four reported. We are also going to hear all sorts of fables of what a good person she really is. Just wait.

    In this regard, we are about to witness a legal circus, not a military tribunal, for a terrorist killer and Benghazi architect of the murders of four Americans.

    We worry so much about poor Mr. Bergdahl, hardly at all about those lost or maimed trying to find him, or those who were similarly injured or killed trying to arrest the five Taliban killers we freed for Bergdahl, and nothing at all for the thousands that the five have killed or the myriads whom they may well kill again. Thinking of all of them wins us no psychological recompense in the way our cheap sympathy for Bergdahl does.

    Ditto poor Lois Lerner, whom some on the left have portrayed as a victim. Not a word about the hundreds of lives made wretched by her imperious witch-hunts and audits.

    Not a word about the legal immigrants who cannot enter the U.S., given the illegal aliens who cut in front of their line. We hear so much about the 90,000 children who were sent into the U.S., but nothing about the callousness of their parents, the conniving of their home governments, a deceitful Mexico that facilitated their transit, the Obama administration that vies for their political allegiance, or lots of killers and criminals who will enter the U.S. while the Border Patrol is distracted and busy as a social welfare agency.

    A sign of a sick society is its cheap empathy and caring for the present, and its utter indifference to the past and future. We never much cared about the havoc that Ms. Vasquez did in the past and did not worry about the obvious trajectory of her future — so a judge lectured, a prosecutor dropped a case, and others let her out shortly before she did the same thing that she always had done.

    We only know all that Ms. Vazquez is merely “negligent” because while being plagued with an addiction and still reeling from an unloving stepfather and a child molestation allegation, she killed a man with her car and fled the scene, though she only killed him by rear-ending him and thus was not “reckless” in doing so.

    Anyone in law enforcement or the criminal justice bureaucracy could have long ago predicted Ms. Vazquez’s rendezvous with Mr. Winslow. He remains a forgotten victim that the state spent not a dime on, and who is now mute while Ms. Vazquez and her lawyer lecture us about “T-boning,” “addictions” and “stepfathers” — and slamming into and sending a Jeep down an embankment as proof of not being murderous.

  51. Indeed, I think it is fair to say that the election of a con-man like Obama in two successive elections itself, is yet another manifestation of what Hansen refers to above, namely “A sign of a sick society is its cheap empathy and caring for the present, and its utter indifference to the past and future.” Yes?

  52. I have to chuckle when ever it is advertised that Issa will ask the tough questions, “You were under oath, did you tell the whole truth?”

    Liars always say, “Yes, I told the truth!”

    They never say, “Well, you’re right, I didn’t tell the whole truth, I actually lied.”

    Just ask my Es-husband, he has it down to a science.

    Just like George Carlin said, “If they didn’t see you, you didn’t do it.”

    Report: Polish minister says US ties worthless

    WARSAW, Poland (AP) — A Polish magazine said Sunday it has obtained recordings of a conversation in which Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski says the country’s strong alliance with the U.S. “isn’t worth anything” and is “even harmful because it creates a false sense of security.” [snip]

    Sikorski has been an outspoken critic of the Kremlin and has strongly criticized Russian actions in Ukraine this year. In the past he was a strong supporter of the United States, though he has become more critical of Washington in recent years.

  55. Note how our foreign relations went down the toilet during the Bush years, perked up when Hillary was SOS, and are now back down again.

    What bothers me is that they accuse the other side denies AND NO IMPEACHMENT MATERIAL IS PRESENTED. Same story when they accused the White House of creating the talking points they denied it, and they just argued. With all the lawyers they had on staff, it never occurred to Issa’s Oversight Committee to file a FOIA request. Instead, a private organization did that and viola–comes now the Rhoades memo, proving that the White House denials were all lies. It does no good to argue. You have to impeach the Administration. And in order to do that you need a smoking gun. And you will never find a smoking gun if all you do is pound the table and pose for photo ops. You begin to wonder whether its the truth they really want, or just a little notoriety–the kind of crap McNutt and Light in the loafers Lindsey crave.

  57. Shadow, I’m so glad you posted this:

    “Book: Obama instructed Clinton to use video explanation after Benghazi attack.”

    ________________

    I was sure that was the case, as was reported by more than one source right after the attack.. Yet, when I was re-reading some of the Benghazi info recently, looking for this assertion in particular, I couldn’t find it anywhere. Several of the sites I checked made it sound as if Hillary rushed to blame the video. They didn’t come right out and say it, of course, but strongly implied it. Some even implied that Obama believed the attack was in fact, an act of terror. (yeah, after he was practically forced to admit it.

    Plus, I always thought it was more than a little suspect that the father of one of the victims did several interviews in which he bitterly slammed Hillary, stating that she had personally told him at the meeting in DC with victims families, that the attack was in thought to be response to the video, I’m not saying this father was lying, but he just seemed to go out of his way to nail Hillary in a very public way. With Obama and other officials present along with Hillary, it just didn’t seem likely that she would have been the only one to mention this, if she, in fact, did.

    I could only find reference to only two times when she publicly referenced the video, and it was clear that she was trying to avoid blaming the protest of the video for the attack. She said (paraphrasing), Some have speculated that the attack was to protest the video, but we are still investigating, attempting to determine who was responsible for the attack and why.

    As web often reminds us, and rightly so, media is our enemy. The bull-shit they have published and broadcast, in their attempts to defend and protect their messiah, Obama is knee-deep.

    Of course it’s never a surprise when Hillary is thrown under the bus by Obamamedia, Obama staff, and the Obama-Dims. No sacrifice is too great, no act too unethical for for these bastards – not when they[re working to advance Barack.

  58. Mainstream media is blindly following Obama and the Democrats

    The media is blindly following Obama and the Democrats
    President Obama speaks about Iraq in the White House.

    n
    .
    After President Obama spoke about Iraq, Politico posted a story last week that said Democrats were “starting to unite” behind his policy. It reported that party members “from a broad ideological spectrum” supported the decision to deploy 300 military advisers as terrorists threatened Baghdad.

    Readers who ventured beyond the frothy claim were rewarded with this hidden gem: “Senate Democrats actually did not watch the president’s speech on Thursday, instead talking energy policy over lunch.”

    In other words, anything Obama said was good enough for them. Nothing, not even the possible creation of a new jihadist state, can wake Dems from their hypnotic daze. Their master’s voice turns them into iron filings, obedient to his magnet.

    Pass the dessert, I vote yes!

    What, pray tell, is the Obama “policy” they are uniting behind? Since he didn’t actually articulate one, the only conclusion is that they support him, period.

    That the leftist media remain a sucker for story lines about Democratic unity, as opposed to those about a Republican “civil war,” is a disgrace that helps define the age of Obama.

    Uncurious and unserious journalists are not journalists. They are stenographers at best, shills at worst.

    Their abdication is destructive. The refusal to subject Obama to the same critical standard applied to Republican presidents provides cover for policies that lack public support. And that blackout of skepticism serves to keep potentially wayward Democrats in line. Then and only then is it possible to claim they are “starting to unite” behind a policy that doesn’t exist.

    Contrast that fable with the results of a Wall Street Journal/NBC poll: It found Obama’s approval rating falling to 41 percent, with only 37 percent approving of his foreign policy.

    A staggering 54 percent say they do not believe the president “is able to lead the country and get the job done,” with just 42 percent saying he can. A Gallup poll finds only 31 percent approve of his handling of immigration.

    The dreary view of the president reflects the reality of ordinary Americans who see a weak economy and mounting crises at home and abroad. From the VA and IRS scandals, the ObamaCare mess and the surge of illegal immigrants on the southern border, to slaughters in Syria and Iraq, Russia’s advance on Ukraine and China’s aggression against its neighbors, they see the world turning darker and more chaotic.

    They no longer believe their president is capable of rising to the challenges, making this a watershed moment for Obama and the nation.

    If we lived in a parliamentary system, that sour mood could trigger a no-confidence vote and a collapse of the government.

    Yet the Dems fall in line. They rouse themselves only to denounce Republicans as obstructionists, and occasionally racists, for daring to criticize Obama. With few exceptions, they show no interest in probing the IRS for playing political enforcer because so many Dems demanded the agency do just that.

    This is wholesale dereliction by an entire party, yet there is no chance of getting to the truth because Eric Holder’s Justice Department is also corrupted by partisanship.

    Most of the Washington media are similarly blinkered, defining all GOP complaints as “political,” as if Dems are doing God’s work.

    A popular idea among historians is that cataclysmic events, including World War I, happen because major players “sleepwalk” into tragic mistakes. Complacency, as well as ambition, cowardice and greed, lead to bad decisions and fatal actions.

    That pattern suggested itself in a stray comment Obama made Thursday. Aiming to do as little as possible about Iraq, he answered a question about Iran that was consistent with his fetish for the Kumbaya moment.

    “Our view,” he said, “is that Iran can play a constructive role if it is helping to send the same message to the Iraqi government that we’re sending, which is that

  59. Of course Hannity had on Edward Klein who wrote the latest book suggesting he knows more about the Clintons than they know themselves. Whew! That is one slimy, creepy guy with a big tooth smile that never seems to reach his eyes…gives you the shivers to see him. Isn’t it amazing that he “knows” more about everything in the Clinton’s lives that anyone else on earth and he probably has never really talked with them. Does he really think that we are going to believe that a man who is eaten up with Clinton Derangement Syndrome and has been for many years gets personal interviews and info from the Clinton’s close friends and family?

    Seems the big news Klein told Hannity was that Michelle and Valerie Jarret call Hillary “Hildebeast” behind her back. O-o-o, I’m just a twitter with such a revelation!

  60. Southern B, ain’t it the truth. Who gives a fat rats rear-end what MO and ValJar call Hillary. I’m sure she doesn’t. Hell, they had already called her a racist, and made all manner of slanderous accusations against her in 2008. And, Meechelle accused her of not being able to control her husband, or some such BS, referring to Bill’s alleged traveling penis. That’s all a matter of public record. Klien’s revelation about the Hildebeast name calling is less than nothing. Plus, why would anyone give a damn about what the likes of Meechelle and Valarie said about them. Those two certainly don’t have room to be critical of anyone else – especially someone who has accomplished as much as Hillary has. What has MO done? She Spent the country into the poor house on her many trips, and had her staff plant some freaking arugula. Wow. I’m sure she’ll be up for some kind of international vacation and vegetable award. And ValJar is known only for giving Obama really crappy advice and throwing hissy fits.

    Hannity and Klein make a really good pair. Both ignorant. Both self-important. Both infected with CDS. Both unable to accomplish a damn thing of importance. They report half-truths, sometimes outright lies in a condescending manner, both laboring under the delusion that they have all the answers, while we, all of us who have the misfortune of not being them, would be lost in a haze of ignorance and misinformation without the faux knowledge and warped views they impart to us.

    Personally, I’d like to see Hannity and Meechelle go one on one in a boxing ring. I’ll bet MO, strengthened and fortified by her home grown arugula, would knock him out in the first 20 seconds. Then, she would be able to claim at least one decent accomplishment during her time at the WH with her twit of a husband.

  61. It looks like Carl Levin, nickname “The Wart Hog”, is up to his snout and jowls in the IRS scandal. Do not be surprised if it turns out that he was wallowing around in the lost email scandal as well.His hostility against Christians and Christianity is a known fact. More good work by Judicial Watch in uncovering the machinations.

    (Schumer is “Pressed Rat” and is Lothario to little old ladies with blue hair–as in where’s that othario where does he roam with his dome vaselined as can be? According to official records, he resides at 322 Hart Senate Building). This adulation for Chuck is not a figment of someone’s imagination–he grins at them like a little boy, and they treat him that way. I understand that shaking hands with him is like grabbing a jelly donut, and the most dangerous place in the world to be is not Iraq. It is standing between Schumer and a news broadcaster).

    As for this IRS Commissioner,take a good look at him. I think he bears a striking resemblance that celebrity extra terrestrial ET. A malevolent ET from Area 51.Listening to him you would swear he came to us from Area 51. Trust me, I believe in diversity,and have nothing against extra terrestrials in general. Only this one.
    ——————————–
    New documents obtained by Washington watchdog Judicial Watch show that while the feds were directing the Internal Revenue Service’s campaign to target tea-party and conservative groups, a key Democrat senator was pressing the federal agency to shut down political opposition to President Obama.

    The details are being uncovered in a new batch of documents from the IRS obtained by Judicial Watch under a Freedom of Information Act request.

    The organization said Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., exposed his intent to attack tea-party and conservative organizations in a series of letters exchanged with the IRS.

    The feared federal tax agency has been under fire for its attacks on conservative, Christian and tea-party groups ever since it voluntarily revealed the campaign just ahead of a report from an inspector general.

    The allegations are that the IRS tax-exempt department deliberately delayed and obstructed the applications of hundreds of groups that oppose Barack Obama’s policies just ahead of the 2012 presidential election.

    Among other things, the groups were ordered to reveal the content of their prayers and promise not to protest against Planned Parenthood abortion businesses.

    Levin, the chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Investigations, and top IRS officials discussed how to target groups the senator claimed were “engaged in political activities.” In response to a Levin March 30 letter citing the “urgency of the issue,” then-Deputy Commissioner Steven Miller assured the senator that IRS regulations would allow agents to “prepare individualized questions and requests” for applicant organizations.

    The documents, Judicial Watch said, show “an intense effort by Levin and IRS officials to determine what, if any, existing IRS policies could be used to revoke the nonprofit exemptions of active conservative groups and deny exemptions to new applicants.”

    Judicial Watch said that in a July 30, 2012, letter, Levin singles out 12 groups he wants investigated for “political activity.” Of the groups – which included the Club for Growth, Americans for Tax Reform, the 60 Plus Association and the Susan B. Anthony List – only one, Priorities USA, is “notably left-leaning.”

    When the 2012 election neared, Judicial Watch said Levin sent a series of letters to the IRS, “intensifying his campaign against predominantly conservative nonprofit groups.”

    On Sept. 27, 2012, he wanted copies of answers to IRS exemption application question 15 – a question about planned political expenditures – from four specific groups: Crossroads Grassroots Policy Strategies, Priorities USA, Americans for Prosperity and Patriot Majority USA.

    Then on Oct. 17, Miller told Levin, “As discussed in our previous responses dated June 4, 2012, and August 24, 2012, the IRS cannot legally disclose whether the organizations on your list have applied for tax exemptions unless and until such application is approved.”

    Miller, however, then informed Levin that Americans for Prosperity and Patriot Majority had been approved, but the IRS has no records for Crossroads and Priorities USA, Judicial Watch said.

    On Oct. 23, Levin wrote again to express his dissatisfaction with the IRS handling of “social welfare” 501(c)(4) organizations, insisting that IRS guidance “misinterprets the law” by allowing any political activity. He again demanded an answer as to whether the four organizations he listed in his previous letter were primarily engaged in the promotion of social welfare. He also sought copies of tax exempt revocation letters sent due to c4 political activities, as well as statistics on how many c4s have been notified that they may be in violation due to political activities, Judicial Watch reported.

    As for the repeated IRS claims that the targeting of socially conservative organizations was done by a few rogue agents in a Cincinnati office, Judicial Watch said the new documentation indicates otherwise.

    The documents, which came in response to an October 2013 Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed after the agency refused to respond to four FOIA requests dating back to May 2013, included a “key email string” from July 2012.

    The emails confirm that IRS tea-party scrutiny was directed from Washington, D.C., Judicial Watch said.

    “On July 6, 2010, Holly Paz (the former director of the IRS Rulings and Agreements Division and current manager of Exempt Organizations Guidance) asks IRS lawyer Steven Grodnitzky ‘to let Cindy and Sharon know how we have been handling tea-party applications in the last few months,’” Judicial Watch said.

    Cindy Thomas is the former director of the IRS Exempt Organizations office in Cincinnati, and Sharon Camarillo was a senior manager in the Los Angeles office.

    Grodnitzky, a top lawyer in the Exempt Organization Technical unit (EOT) in Washington, D.C., responded:

    EOT is working the tea-party applications in coordination with Cincy. We are developing a few applications here in D.C. and providing copies of our development letters with the agent to use as examples in the development of their cases. Chip Hull [another lawyer in IRS headquarters] is working these cases in EOT and working with the agent in Cincy, so any communication should include him as well. Because the tea-party applications are the subject of an SCR [Sensitive Case Report], we cannot resolve any of the cases without coordinating with Rob.

    Judicial Watch said “Rob” apparently refers to Rob Choi, then-director of rulings and agreements in the IRS Washington, D.C., headquarters.

    The organization cited another email string from February and March 2010.

    The string included a message from a California EO determinations manager discussing a tea-party application “currently being held in the screening group.”

    “Please let ‘Washington’ know about this potentially embarrassing political case involving a ‘tea-party’ organization,” the manager wrote. “Recent media attention to this type of organization indicates to me that this is a ‘high profile’ case.”

    Also among the documents was correspondence to internal IRS investigators from Lois Lerner, the former director of the Tax Exempt Organizations office who was found in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify.

    It cited “Be on the Lookout” criteria for picking groups to target.

    “Because the BOLO only contained a brief reference to ‘Organizations involved with the tea party movement applying for exemption under 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4)’ in June 2011, the EO Determinations manager asked the manager of the screening group, John Shafer [IRS Cincinnati field office manager], what criteria were being used to label cases as ‘tea party’ cases. (‘Do the applications specify/state ‘ tea party’? If not, how do we know applicant is involved with the tea party movement?’) The screening group manager asked his employees how they were applying the BOLO’s short–hand reference to ‘tea party.’ His employees responded that they were including organizations meeting any of the following criteria as falling within the BOLO’s reference to ‘tea party’ organizations: ’1. ‘Tea Party’, ‘Patriots’ or ’9/12 Project’ is referenced in the case file. 2. Issues include government spending, government debt and taxes. 3. Educate the public through advocacy/legislative activities to make America a better place to live. 4. Statements in the case file that are critical of the how the country is being run,” the document said.

    “So, we believe we have provided information that shows that no one in EO ‘developed’ the criteria. Rather, staff used their own interpretations of the brief reference to ‘organizations involved with the tea party movement,’ which was what was on the BOLO list.”

    “Lerner omits that her office was ‘developing’ the applications for all tea-party groups,” Judicial Watch said.

    “These new documents show that officials in the IRS headquarters were responsible for the illegal delays of tea-party applications,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is disturbing to see Lois Lerner mislead the IRS’ internal investigators about her office’s tea-party targeting. These documents also confirm the unprecedented pressure from congressional Democrats to go after President Obama’s political opponents. The IRS scandal has now ensnared Congress.”

    A report on May 14, 2013, from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration , or TIGTA, found the IRS had singled out groups with conservative-sounding terms such as “patriot” and “tea party” in their titles when applying for tax-exempt status. The TIGTA probe determined: “Early in Calendar Year 2010, the IRS began using inappropriate criteria to identify organizations applying for tax-exempt status (e.g., lists of past and future donors).”

    Judicial Watch said the “illegal IRS reviews continued for more than 18 months and ‘delayed processing of targeted groups applications’ preparing for the 2012 presidential election.”

    He has a closer relationship with Clinton loyalists than you may realize. He is useful conduit for stories they want published. In politics, things are seldom what they seem, and he may sound at times like he is dishing dirt, but in truth he also is a useful tool they can use to attack Obama (for just cause) without appearing to be disloyal.

    It’s a darn good thing that wars, like the new one in Iraq – all end during the weekends so reporters and Baracko can have fun and rest up for their next week of games and bull$hit.

    Fortunately, there are some people on the ramparts analyzing the war in Iraq and coming up with some positive solutions. Here is one that seems to be addressed particularly to you and TheRock and whoever else I was sparring with a few weeks ago about Catholic/Protestant history, reported in Foreign Policy Situation Report reported here by Admiral James Stavridis:

    Wanna know how the lessons of the European wars of the Reformation — hundreds of years old — can help stave off the lethal mix of religious radicalization and politics in Iraq?

    “I cannot and I will not recant anything, since it is neither safe nor right to go against conscience. May God help me. Amen.” —Martin Luther, reply to the Diet of Worms, April 1521

    Adm. James Stavridis:

    “As Sunnis and Shiites tear their societies apart throughout parts of the Arab world, old ghosts are indeed rattling from the eastern Mediterranean and Levant to the northern Arabian Gulf. We watch with horror and near disbelief as radicalized elements on both sides of the Islamic faith take up arms in Iraq and Syria in increasingly vicious ways. But in the West, we have seen this play out before: in the Christian faith, during the wars of the Reformation.

    “From the early 1500s to the mid-1600s, Protestants and Catholics tore Europe apart, killing perhaps a third of the population in parts of Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium, with brutal casualty rates in many other parts of the continent and the British Isles. Coincidentally, this was the moment when Christianity was about 1,500 years old — roughly the length of time since the founding of Islam to the present. Then, as now, this was not purely religious fury at work.

    “…In the Arab and Persian worlds today, geopolitics and economics are clearly at work as well. Iran seeks to dominate as much of the Middle East as it can, and it is willing to use the genie of Sunni versus Shiite to allow it a dominant voice in Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon. On the Sunni side, the Persian Gulf monarchies have incautiously supported radical Sunni groups, resulting in the germination of not only al Qaeda and its subsidiaries, but also the emergent Sunni terrorist group the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS).”

    As in the European wars of the Reformation, the potential for all this to spread is high, and the ability to extinguish it is low. That is a bad combination indeed.

    The use of religious fury and internecine warfare, once permitted to take root and coupled to the energy and resources of geopolitics and economics, is difficult to stamp out.

    What can we do?

    First, be involved. We must recognize this is a lethal mix indeed of religion and politics and do all that we can to stabilize the situation. Simply avoiding it will ultimately cause terrible effects in the United States and Europe as radicals come back. But at the same time recognize that fundamentally this is not our problem to solve. The ultimate solutions must come from within Islam and the region. This means working with the more moderate regimes and pushing for balance in the treatment of Sunni and Shiite.

    In the case of Iraq specifically, we have to push Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s government to build a more inclusive regime, stop the political prosecution of Sunni politicians, and lead the Shiite-dominated government back to working with the Sunni sheikhs. We have to provide material military assistance quickly, including intelligence, weapons, helicopters, ammunition, cyber-support, and perhaps Special Forces advisors. All of this and that may mean working with Iran — strange bedfellows to be sure — but perhaps there will be a grain of goodness in that as well.

    Second, we should recognize that this is probably a long-term challenge. While we can hope to avoid another hundred years of wars à la the European Reformation with long and lingering effect, it is clear that this is not a single momentary challenge. The United States needs to play the long game here, meaning crafting a broad strategy for the region and for dealing with both the religious and geopolitical aspects of this challenge.

    Another important aspect of this is to try to separate the geopolitics (Iran versus Saudi Arabia, for example) from the religious (Shiite versus Sunni). Doing so will be challenging, but creating common cause against vicious and totally radicalized groups like ISIS may make this easier. There may be creative openings with Iran in this regard in the immediate defense of Iraq’s fragile government and polity.

    A fourth approach is to point out and try to involve as positive role models and interlocutors the Islamic-majority nations that seem to be working reasonably well in finding geopolitical and religious balance, including Turkey and Indonesia. This should include encouraging religious leaders within Islam to speak out for tolerance, working with regional organizations (e.g., the Arab League), and engaging the United Nations.

    Reformation can be a bloody business indeed, as history has shown with the Christian faith. Playwright and novelist Grant Morrison said, “Idealists and reformers all become executioners in their turn. The road to utopia ends with the steps of the scaffold, the endless moment of the guillotine.” That rings unfortunately true in parts of the Islamic world at the moment.

    The wars of the Reformation in Europe lasted more than a hundred years, and tragically, they sputter along in divided Northern Ireland today. It will require a deep effort within the Islamic world to head off the further violent politicization of this world faith, and leadership by men and women of good heart will be vital to breaking an emerging cycle of violence. We should do all we can to help.

    I can’t help but think that the “leadership by men and women of good heart” and sound mind can only be answered by HRC with her strong Methodist faith and desire for America to play a leadership role once again all around the globe, and thus necessarily in Iraq.

    Do you think Levin, who is not running for re-election in 2014, has been preselected as official scapegoat if things head south? Durbin, Schumer, and Whitehouse (and several others) were at least as vociferous and criminal in their intent as Levin but of course they are not ready to head for the door and safety away from a Republican Senate ethics committee investigation. This appears to be more bait and switch and an attempt to direct attention to ONE bad actor rather than the entire caucus.

    I have to chuckle whenever it is advertised that Issa will ask the tough questions….

    Just ask my ex-husband, he has it down to a science.

    Just like George Carlin said, “If they didn’t see you, you didn’t do it.”

    So, you and I not only have love of horses and George Carlin in common, but also a history with former spouses who had lying down to the science of twisting questions around to get the answers they wanted, or to avoid the answers they didn’t want.

    Do you have video of Carlin’s comment? I missed that one.

    Polish… Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski says the country’s strong alliance with the U.S. “isn’t worth anything” and is “even harmful because it creates a false sense of security.”

    Sikorski has been an outspoken critic of the Kremlin and has strongly criticized Russian actions in Ukraine this year. In the past he was a strong supporter of the United States, though he has become more critical of Washington in recent years.

    As was true for the Libyan no-fly zone and overthrow of Qaddafi, the US turned to the French to lead once again concerning Poland. France recently sent a squadron of fully armed fighters to Poland in the midst of the Ukrainian crisis. The Hungarians, Bulgarians and Romanians didn’t ask for any such show of support, but the Poles did.

    Note how our foreign relations went down the toilet during the Bush years, perked up when Hillary was SOS, and are now back down again.

    Yes, it is very important to note this; but it is a stumbling block for those of us who did not take note during her tenure at State, did not read the QDDR, did not read the several books that have been published on the subject and probably will not read Hard Choices either.

    The QDDR, the Ames & Parnel book and Hard Choices are all three imperative reading material for anyone who wants to be able to talk knowledgeably and document this positive blip in our foreign relations when the time comes for a future presidential campaign. This assumes that we are more inclined to read than to watch TV, which is the case for me.

    … all you do is pound the table and pose for photo ops. You begin to wonder whether its the truth they really want, or just a little notoriety….

    You know my answer to that as concerns Benghazi.

  69. Book: Obama instructed Clinton to use video explanation after Benghazi attack.

    This is my problem with Hillary. She should have refused to promote the false narrative or at least when asked later, she should have said that her boss insited on that course and to have refused would have cost her her job where she thought she was needed.
    Either way, it speaks to a lack of the kind of cohones or leadership required. I don’t think Bill would have allowed himself to be a patsy. Hillary’s involvement with Obama to me shows her pursuit of personal fame and fortune over whats truly best for the country.
    I will likely vote for her if she runs, but will not contribute or campaign. She is a disappointment to me.
    I watched her on Fox and found her not credible on Benghazi. So sad…….

    [Edward Klein] has a closer relationship with Clinton loyalists than you may realize. He is useful conduit for stories they want published.

    Severe criticism of Klein comes from all quarters. From Wikipedia:

    Klein has been criticized for his biography of Hillary Clinton, titled, The Truth About Hillary: What She Knew, When She Knew It, and How Far She’ll Go to Become President, which was released on June 21, 2005. Politico criticized the book for “serious factual errors, truncated and distorted quotes and overall themes [that] don’t gibe with any other serious accounts of Clinton’s life.” The book was attacked not only by liberals, but by conservatives as well. John Podhoretz wrote in the New York Post, “Thirty pages into it, I wanted to take a shower. Sixty pages into it, I wanted to be decontaminated. And 200 pages into it, I wanted someone to drive stakes through my eyes so I wouldn’t have to suffer through another word.”[7] In National Review James Geraghty wrote, “Folks, there are plenty of arguments against Hillary Clinton, her policies, her views, her proposals, and her philosophies. This stuff ain’t it. Nobody on the right, left, or center ought to stoop to this level.”

    It looks like your claim that Klein is a good conduit for pro-HRC, anti-Obama verbiage is way off track. I’ll go with Southern Born’s assessment.

  72. Lame Duck. 🙂

    Pundits are pointing to President Barack Obama’s recent decline in public opinion polls, and saying that he may now become another “lame duck” president, unable to accomplish much during his final term in office.

    That has happened to other presidents. But it is extremely unlikely to happen to this president. There are reasons why other presidents have become impotent during their last years in office. But those reasons do not apply to Barack Obama.

    The Constitution of the United States does not give presidents the power to carry out major policy changes without the cooperation of other branches of government. Once the country becomes disenchanted with a president during his second term, Congress has little incentive to cooperate with him — and, once Congress becomes uncooperative, there is little that a president can do on his own.

    That is, if he respects the Constitution.

    Sowell is right. The writing is on the wall. Same as it was in Iraq when ISIS took over Fallouja a few months back.

    Nobody did anything then, and nobody is going to do anything now.

    Obama is just going to take the role of dictator and run with it. When he leaves, we will be cleaning up the mess for decades. I’ve see things happen this term I never thought I’d ever see happen in the US government.

    Hugo Chavez made the blueprint for how to use the rules of a democracy to turn it into a dictatorship in practice.

    By the way, even Crazy Joe would be better than Obama.

  74. Foxy 11:56 am. You’ve already responded to the comment/question I intended to write here.
    First – contentious GOP – even Trey are not effective against the likes of IRS guy to whom Obama will likely soon dispense his typical “attaboy” (having full confidence).
    Then. I am feeling so hopeless. Like hostage in my own country. Who dares stop him?
    ISTOOK: Obama’s crazy disregard for immigration laws turns America into an asylum

    President Barack Obama’s crazy disregard for our immigration laws has turned America into an asylum.
    Obama says he’s putting more resources into an effort to deal with the flood of illegal aliens. But it’s not about stopping the flood, it’s not about keeping them out and it’s not about sending them home.
    It’s about another coverup.
    Instead, those tens of thousands overwhelming our border are likely here to stay, and he’s helping make sure that happens. Latest reports say most are young men in their teens who heard they can get amnesty and jobs in America. Obama is making those rumors come true.
    The extra people being sent to the border to deal with the surge are tasked by the president not with reversing the trend but with processing everyone more quickly. The quicker they can be processed out of temporary centers and spread all over the country, the less glaring the problem is. It becomes a coverup. Without the images of huddled masses, the story goes away — or so goes the White House thinking. And whatever the White House thinks, the Democrats and media fall in line.
    So the feds rush resources to process the mass of illegal aliens and unite them with their relatives who are already in America — even when those family members are also here illegally. None of them gets deported. It’s this year’s version of “don’t ask, don’t tell.”

  75. The IRS folk should be interrogated to the nines over their computer backup procedures. How often, backup medium, retention, then on to logs of these backups. GO way into detail like Columbo did. I think they could may hay with that. Well, I don’t suppose Issa reads here much….

  76. Some good advice for Republicans from The Wall Street Journal:

    Ignore Hillary Clinton. Please.

    By John Feehery

    Will Hillary Clinton run for president or won’t she? If she does, how can Republicans stop her?

    I have a simple strategy: Ignore her.

    Hillary Clinton is not president. She is not a candidate, and it is unclear whether she will become one. She is no longer secretary of state, nor is she still a senator.

    She is selling a book and preparing to become a grandmother.

    Here are four reasons Republicans should do everything thing they can to leave her alone:

    1. The more Republicans attack her, the more press she gets. The corollary to that is the less Republicans attack her, the less press she gets.

    2. The more Republicans attack her, the more relevant she appears. We’re talking about a private citizen who has no clear path to power. She is old news as long as Republicans don’t make her new news.

    3. Republicans won’t knock her out of Democratic primary. Only Democrats can do that. And the more Republicans attack her, the better she will do in a Democratic primary. Why make her a martyr for the left wing?

    4. Why use all the good stuff now? If Republicans throw everything but the kitchen sink at her now, they won’t have fresh narratives if she does get the Democratic nomination. At the battle of Bunker Hill, William Prescott ordered: Don’t fire until you see the whites in their eyes. That’s good advice for presidential elections too.

    Conventional wisdom has it that Hillary Clinton’s bid to win the White House is unstoppable. As we saw in 2008, that’s true until it’s not true. There are no sure things in politics, not even Hillary Clinton.

  77. The Daily Beast sees major daylight between HRC and Obama on the Status of Forces Agreement that might have saved Iraq from the turmoil it is now suffering.

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/06/18/hillary-clinton-pushed-obama-to-keep-troops-in-iraq.html

    HRC and Gates/Dempsey may have been wrong; but the difference in outlook and objective between the WH and State is plain to see. Basically, Obama saw the removal of all troops as a core commitment, period.

    The SOFA failed because Maliki refused it. “The truth about Hillary is that she is staunchly anti-Maliki. She thinks he’s an old-school sectarian thug” says the WH. I think that in that respect, her thinking was correct and the WH did without a SOFA because they were too short-sighted.

  78. It looks like your claim that Klein is a good conduit for pro-HRC, anti-Obama verbiage is way off track. I’ll go with Southern Born’s assessment.
    ——————-
    You are free to believe whatever you want to believe. But it is apparent to me that you have little understanding of how the media works, how individual writers make points on both sides of the line so they can schlep in something new–in other words get the reader agreeing with several points and then slip them the mickey, and most of all, you appear to have no sophistication in understanding how politicians use the media to enhance their own image and fend off attackers. Perhaps the only way to acquire this information is by being around it, and seeing it first hand.

    If your best attempt at this is Wikipedia, then you should know that two of the three sources you cite as critics of Klein are conservatives. If he were the anti Clinton figure suggested then why would they criticize him, because in that case he would be an ally whom they would support.

    Also, you would do well to consider his prior book in which he documented second hand accounts of private conversations between Bill, Hillary and loyalists debating the merits of resigning from her SOS job before 2012 and running against him. In said discussions, which were fed to him by people in that meeting, Bill argued that she should run against him and she refused to do so out of professed loyalty.

    And now in his current book he provides her with cover for repeating the false talking points that the video and not terrorism were the cause in fact of the Benghazi attack, stating that she did not believe it, but was ordered by Obama to promulgate that false story, and therefore did so. Whether that is true or not, it exonerates Hillary, and according to my information it came from Hillary insiders, who gave it to Kline. It serves the objective we advocate here which is to separate herself from Obama, while avoiding a direct confrontation with the hard left.

    But as I say, you are free to believe anything you want.

  79. “The only thing we can conclude from the Klein book is that there are people close to Hillary eager to put distance between her and Obama. This conflict is likely to grow in the coming months. But take the claims with a grain of salt. Klein’s stuff is pretty sketchy from a fact standpoint.”—Larry Johnson.

    The Daily Beast is a pro Hillary source as well. Doesn’t mean they don’t say anti Clinton pro Obama things from time to time, but they are willing pass along talking points that allow Hillary to separate herself without having Hillary do this overtly. She can maintain her public posture that she is loyal to the president. In my opinion, this passive aggressive approach is insufficient. I believe in circumstances like this you must be willing to stand behind the statements she makes because the thrust of the other party will be to impute Obama’s mistakes and trampling on the Constitution, and if all she is willing to say is I am loyal to the president, then that she will have to confront what the sources her people are feeding with contrary information.

    Here is one that seems to be addressed particularly to you and TheRock and whoever else I was sparring with a few weeks ago about Catholic/Protestant history..

    ——
    Really, I sparred with you on religion?

    Normally, that’s one category I stay away from as much as possible. Religious beliefs are closely tied to emotion and one’s own belief system, pretty worthless to spar over that…I my book. I learned from experience awhile ago.

  83. Any competent attorney representing the IRS Commissioner would be tearing his hair out at the exchange he had with Trey, which is akin to the love scene in Deliverance. But the Commissioner, frankly, was his own worst enemy. He went to law school, and does not know what spoliation is? Never heard of it?? And he entered the practice of law for one year, and gave it up for Lent. Not only is that a bit flippant, it suggests the arrogance of officialdom, which Cicero spoke about. I cannot image a poorer representative of an agency whose powers are being expanded geometrically by Obamacare, and if perchance it leads to a taxpayer boycott at some point in the process, then it is lights out for the establishment. You can prosecute a single tax evader, but not a million of them, especially when you have given them all the justification in the world to not pay their taxes. I would hate to see it come to that.

    ——
    I agree Hold’um

    The first thing I would do, if I were some dumbAss Congressman that didn’t know jackshit about networks and computers, is to find a couple of these geek type guys/girls and learn what is going on with the IRS IT people.

    Question the IT folks from the IRS on their procedures, on their network, their system of computer backups, their email client, yadda, yadda, yadda…then proceed with finding out where those ‘recycled’ hard drives went, go to that damn place and find out if they are there, where they went.

    Go get them, even if it means getting a big dozer to dig them up out of the dump site. Then take the hard drives, finding only one of them is good enough…take that hardware to specialists at the FBI to recover the data.

  86. But he had a golf date. :evil;

    For months before the fall of Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, Washington and London were getting detailed warnings about jihadist plans to exploit Sunni resentment toward Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki and launch an ambitious takeover of northern and western Iraq.

    Kurdish military sources say the strategy of the ultra-radical Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) was telegraphed long in advance. The Kurds, who have their own autonomous region in northern Iraq and their own armed forces, monitored developing ties between the jihadists and tribal leaders as well as growing contacts with former Iraqi military officers.

The good news is that there are lots of great recovery tools and methods out there and I would like to share them with you.

    I originally wrote this article back in 2006 and it currently holds the title as my most popular post. Since hard drive recovery seems to be a hot topic, I keep it updated with all the latest and greatest hard drive recovery information. Enjoy!

    El Paso, Texas (CBS HOUSTON) – The Department of Homeland Security is looking to fulfill an order for thousands of pairs of men’s underwear – with hundreds of the requested men’s briefs in the 5X and 6X-large sizes.

    A solicitation posted earlier this month by the Immigration & Customs Enforcement office seeks thousands of “White 100% Cotton Men’s Briefs” ranging from mediums to hundreds of 6X-large pairs of the underwear.

    ICE facilities have seen a recent influx of detained immigrants awaiting deportation, during which time, the detention facilities require such basic items for the detained aliens, Breitbart reported. The ICE orders for the underwear are not unusual for the immigration detention facilities, according to ICE officials.
