You may want to cross out the Tax adjective and make scammer plural. Twould be the most accurate statement.

Government exists to enrich us and beggar our adversaries is probably an apt motto these days.

At IP2P, we've addressed several articles about Patrick Fitzgerald's idea of truth.

However, the piece that may prove to be our most important chronicle is ahead. It involves a book titled Triple Cross.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald's attack on investigative reporter and novelist Peter Lance, and his book Triple Cross, was Fitzgerald's war against the truth.

The Department of Justice declared war against the First Amendment when it allowed Fitzgerald to conduct his war on Lance, and on the publisher of his book, from within the U.S. Attorneys Office in Chicago.

Read about Fitzgerald's Attempts to silence Lance here:...

I was at my first job in education in 78 and was making a similar amount of money. We got paid for every snow day so those early morning calls were a real treat. I kept wishing I could have gone away somewhere warmer if I knew ahead of time that we would be out the entire week.

According to Fishbowl DC, newly-installed CNN-chief Jeff Zucker has made or is contemplating a couple of smart moves. Apparently, John King has survived and just renewed his contract. That's the good news.

“The United States military is not and should not be a global 911 service capable of arriving on the scene within minutes to every possible contingency around the world,” Panetta told the Senate Armed Services Committee.

“What difference, at this point, does it make?” Clinton asked during a testy exchange with one Republican.

The President was absent from the discussion and the scene. The firefight lasted 5 hours. The Sec State did nothing. The Pentagon is blaming State for not requesting assistance.

What part of dereliction of duty do these people not understand?

You are absolutely correct. Dereliction of duty is too kind. Treason is a better word in my estimation. Both Clinton and Obama FAILED the 3am call. I bet this hurts Hil's chances in 2016. The election ads write themselves. Her political career is finished. No wonder Bammy wanted this covered up. If people knew he was gabbing on the phone with BiBi so he could send out his minions to woo the Jewish vote while Stevens was being dragged through the streets they would have dumped him in November. This is so horrendous. No surprise that re-election was far more important to him than the lives of 4 patriots. He should be impeached.Panetta is the only one willing to tell the truth. He must feel relieved not to be associated with this band of liars anymore.

Good Morning, TM

Prepare to be outraged. I believe you're from Connecticut, no?

Lincoln Movie Factual Flaw In Slavery Vote:

Spielberg falsely portrays Connecticut's Congressmen as voting against abolishing Slavery instead of their actual votes which were all in favor of abolishing Slavery.

Apparently back then they actually read the Bill before passing it, so that they knew what was in it. What a concept.

And perhaps Manti Teʻo was on the phone for 400 minutes with Dee Dee.

The United States military is not and should not be a global 911 service capable of arriving on the scene within minutes to every possible contingency around the world

If we were to rank the likelihoods of literally every emergency that could possibly arise anywhere on the surface of the earth, where on that list would Panetta put an attack
* on a US diplomatic outpost
* in the Middle East
* in a nation in which the US had assisted in the overthrow of an unfriendly dictator earlier in the year
* and which was embroiled in a civil war between the late dictator's faction and Islamists (both hostile to the US)
* given that the diplomatic outpost had been bombed earlier
* twice
* and the ambassador repeatedly communicated concerns over further attacks
* and the diplomatic outpost, the ambassador, and the CIA may have been involved in clandestine weapons transfers to other (nominally) anti-Islamist forces in the region
* and it was the anniversary of the most successful attack on America ever by an Islamist organization that had affiliates in the country and that attached great significance to important dates?

The corruption never stops: Interior Secretary nominee Sally Jewell received Obamacare waiver for REI

REI CEO Sally Jewell, President Obama’s nominee for Interior Secretary, received an Obamacare waiver in 2011 for her company’s health care coverage for 1,180 employees...

The controversial waivers were issued to select companies after Obama’s health care reform bill passed in 2008,..

Jewell participated in an Obama administration roundtable in 2009 to talk about the benefits of health care reform.

ObamaCare's such a great Program that she got a special waiver to avoid having to comply with it.

"General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, appeared to be unaware that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified that she did not see a cable from Ambassador Christopher Stevens in August of 2012 in which the late ambassador warned the consulate in Benghazi was not safe from attack."

Matt. Benghazi never happened. No one died, except the guy with the GIANT BALLS. If you see placating muzztards as DUTY, there the only derelict was the former Seal lighting up the Muzztards with his laser.
And he waited,and he waited and he waited, UNTIL, he got lit up. BIG TIME.

The Keystone XL debacle apparently wasn't enough insult to Canada by Barry.
Caroline Kennedy next US-Canuck ambassador?

Jane - Mock the Media!

Carl Levin spending 8 minutes on the horrors of waterboarding - but loving those drones!

lyle

I don't know if it's true, but I read somewhere that the two ex-SEALs reportedly took out over sixty jihadis before they got killed. I so want to believe this is true.

I know it's considered gauche to reveal one's charitable giving but I sent a C-note to the Ty Woods Memorial Fund to support his wife and kids. I will send the same amount if anyone knows if there is one for his brother in arms.

NK

Caroline is lame but not an insult. Sending that scumbag, Chavez-loving, worthless POS, toady Joe Kennedy would have been an insult.

lyle

You know, I, you know, would like to, you know, express my...uh, you know, gratitude for the opportunity to, you know, be an ambassador to, you know, that country to our, you know, north. [sotto voce to aide: What is its name again?] Yes, an ambassador to, you know, Canada.

Were I a Canadian I would consider the appointment of a moron as the US ambassador an insult.

Speaking of sleezy, slimy corrupt moron cousins, I had the misfortune of running across drug-addled slut Kerry Kennedy on CNN last night consorting with Piers Morgan over how important it is to pass "gun control" legislation. She seemed genuinely drugged and robotic, but that's above average for a Kennedy.

lyle

Good point, Rob. Waterboarding can be called off and its effects overcome. Hellfire strikes can be called off, too, I guess but their effects are a bit more permanent.

NK

Well Caroline's grand daddy did "import" that Canadian Club libation.

Porchlight

Another major difference - you can avoid waterboarding entirely by giving up the info voluntarily.

I guess the same could be said of drones if the person in question turns themselves in to authorities.

Happy birthday, JiB, I was going to recommend the Tey book, about Richard 111,who seems to have gotten as raw a deal from Thomas More and the bard, as Machiavelli did for Caterina Sforza.

I'm reminded with the Lance/Fitzgerald affair, how it resembles what a certain overzealous cop , Michele Guittari, did to a reporter, Mario Spezi, re the Monster of Florence

jimmyk

Another difference is that waterboarding doesn't usually take out innocents or allies, as the drone did with Jaber.

Jane - Mock the Media!

I can't believe how lackadaisical Brennan was about letting the Benghazi suspect go free. "NO big deal".

Hate to disagree with NK as a valued on line compatriot and friend but: I have been a member of REI since 1972.

I have bought all my backpacking, snow gear, camping, skiing and biking gear from them for years. They are the most complete, knowledgeable company in the world much less America on outdoor equipment, survival and sports enjoyment. No one does it better but a lot like to emulate them.

I have so many maps, books, tools, equipment, gadgets, etc. from them that if I added up all the cost it would be in the 10's of thousands. Anyone with an intertest in hiking, backpacking, camping, climbing, skiing, biking etc. has probably had some experience with REI.

So what their CEO is a Obamaite? So are a lot of business leaders and icons of invention like Jobs. Are we going to boycott Apple, Citi, GE, and Hyatt and live on Chicken sandwiches and doing model building?

A prof was trying to block what was really going on with global citizenship as an ideology in education. Not only did I know he was lying on several points but he cited a woman who I recognized as being really close to the line on funding terrorists.

Bad move. He is where I got the wonderful quote about Barber. Once I knew article existed I was able to find a copy of what is supposed to have been cleansed from the Internet.

Justice oriented citizens is definitely the sort of thing that would have drawn in Ayers. This is very Maoist thuggery.

Agreed JiB and one tends not to scrimp on things like, you know, ropes and carabiners but most of them were made by Kraut and Swiss firms not REI and when I started seeing identical equipment for much less at other retailers I kind of lost my REI buzz.
I think it was a pair of Raichle boots for about 50% more than I could get them somewhere else that put the final nail in the coffin.

Rep. Susan Davis announced Thursday that she has joined fellow Democratic Congress members in introducing a constitutional amendment to undo the Supreme Court ruling that allows corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money on campaigns.


“We need to restore accountability in our political process,” said Davis, who represents La Mesa, Spring Valley and Lemon Grove in the 53rd District.


“We are supposed to have a government of the people, by the people, for the people. The integrity of our democracy is at stake when corporations can drown out the voices of the people in our elections.”


She said the Citizens United case “opened the floodgates to unrestricted special interest campaign spending in American elections—permitting corporations to spend unlimited funds, directly or through third parties and political action committees organized for those purposes, to influence federal elections and opened the door for the emergence of super PACs...”

Rereading my link above about TM's Connecticut Congressman upset about Spielberg's "Lincoln" Movie being inaccurate, I came across this quote from the Congressman and thought it comical:

“But in a movie based on significant real-life events — particularly a movie about a seminal moment in American history so closely associated with Doris Kearns Goodwin and her book, ‘Team of Rivals’ — accuracy is paramount.” Ha!

Watching O'Reilly just this instance, it looks like Rove has his white board out and is doing damage control.
