and gone forever
Headline from the bloombergview website.
Is it any wonder this is surfacing? When you have a completely inexperienced president doing an entire overall of healthcare insurance, a multi-billion dollar sector, you should expect that abject business inexperience to be an asset? It'll turn out be just a phony scandal.
obama_is_simply_the_best like really? Must be why his poll numbers continue to tank.
In a letter to the president, Speaker John Boehner blamed the Obama administration policies for the huge increase in children making their way here from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, and said the president must act.
Supporters of the Dream Act felt that the Act would not create an "amnesty program" and would produce a variety of social and economic benefits, while critics contend that it would reward illegal immigration and encourage more of it, inviting fraud and shielding gang members from deportation. And the reality is surfacing with tens of thousands crossing the border as if no border existed. The taxpayers are paying for domestic interstate travel and facilities utilized by individual states for domestic crisis holding areas are overflowing with illegal aliens. I won't bother with all of the other mounting issues, the most recent the crashed/lost e-mails of the IRS. Are you Obama fanatics smelling the stench yet?
Iraq about to fall and we trade a deserter for 5 key terrorists. Goes to show you what a life-long community organizer can illustrate for the Peter Principle. It suggests that people will tend to be promoted until they reach their "position of incompetence".

Voters ignored Benghazigate & Fast and Furious gun-running
They re-elected the King of Entitlement Presidents, Obama. Read about the debt-hole digger.
"If Obama thinks that Bush dealt him a weak hand, wait til we see how much weaker the hand is going to be that Obama deals his successor," Schiff says in the attached video (released that day). "We're going to be in much worse shape.''
How so? Well, in many ways if you follow the thinking of this well known, articulate and published uber-Bear. By Schiff's calculations, "the stock market is correct in going down" today since he says higher taxes on companies (at the corporate and/or individual level) makes those companies less valuable. So lower stocks is one area he predicts.
Being deeper in debt is another. In fact, he says we'll be at $20 trillion in a couple of years, and going higher from there. And this will bring upon the country's next looming crisis.
"I think what's going to happen in Obama's second term is going to be a currency crisis; a sovereign debt crisis. It's going to be the same thing that is happening in Europe or Greece," he says, "but it's going to be a lot worse."
Now you have,
Eric Stahl, who recently retired as a major in the U.S. Air Force, served as commander and pilot of the C-17 aircraft that was used to transport the corpses of the four casualties from the Benghazi attacks – then-U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, information officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods – as well as the assault’s survivors from Tripoli to the safety of an American military base in Ramstein, Germany.
In an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “Special Report,” Stahl said members of a CIA-trained Global Response Staff who raced to the scene of the attacks were “confused” by the administration’s repeated implication of the video as a trigger for the attacks, because “they knew during the attack…who was doing the attacking.” Asked how, Stahl told anchor Bret Baier: “Right after they left the consulate in Benghazi and went to the [CIA] safehouse, they were getting reports that cell phones, consulate cell phones, were being used to make calls to the attackers' higher ups.”
A separate U.S. official, one with intimate details of the bloody events of that night, confirmed the major’s assertion. The second source, who requested anonymity to discuss classified data, told Fox News he had personally read the intelligence reports at the time that contained references to calls by terrorists – using State Department cell phones captured at the consulate during the battle – to their terrorist leaders. The second source also confirmed that the security teams on the ground received this intelligence in real time.
Major Stahl was never interviewed by the Accountability Review Board, the investigative panel convened, pursuant to statute, by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as the official body reviewing all the circumstances surrounding the attacks and their aftermath. Many lawmakers and independent experts have criticized the thoroughness of the ARB, which also never interviewed Clinton.
not_in_my_world (your very new alias) in your world you expect to open an intellectual discussion while, in effect, hiding your real alias. The other possibility is you made this alias, never having another, which I doubt happened. FYI, 15 years of message board interaction with towncryer911 as my alias, you can be certain I've seen all the message board gamesmanship anyone can put forth. Iraq has lost two more cities. An extremely radical Islamic state is but weeks away.
You are illogical. I'm being lenient to describe you in that way. You said, "some bully can keep people uneducated" the reality is only the uneducated and undereducated keep themselves uneducated. This is more true now than ever given the widespread availability to surf the web. President Lincoln educated himself by candlelight because he was motivated to do so Lack of logic again, herein, "If we are going to pay to help people in these countries we should be paying for education, period." Spoken like a true devotee of the current administration. You can ignore the trillions of escalating debt. You can ignore that the President never had a meaningful job in the private sector which may be the reason he continues and you imply that printing currency at a rate never seen in this country's history, it ok. No smidgen of ineptitude, no smidgen of corruption. Who cares that Lerner took the fifth? Who cares about those that died 9/11 in Benghazi ? Why redact Fast & Furious documents? Transparency? The VA? Oh, another 'phony' scandal.

The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News.
Yesterday an increasingly disconcerting reality for the United States: From Iraq to Syria and beyond, radical offshoots of al-Qaeda are expanding their ambitions and directly threatening American national security interests.
The splinter groups have become a bigger problem than what remains of the old core al-Qaeda, and one that is in many ways harder to address or contain. The loss of Mosul to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), U.S. officials and experts acknowledged, is a powerful demonstration of the extremists’ growing effectiveness and reach.

Perhaps those that wished I sold short or those that would rather me be a former long complaining about how much I lost, they'd prefer I remain silent. Well, if I disappoint them, I surely wasn't here to befriend them.
