If we've learned nothing else from the Zimmerman trial, it's that Hispanics like to shoot black children for no reason. Yet Marco Rubio wants to let millions more of these predators into our country. Why does Marco Rubio hate black children?

Thomas Collins

OK, I know it's too early to go OT, but the question of whether Team Obama can keep Taxmangate away from the WH until after the 2014 midterm elections is just too tantalizing a question to resist.

O'Donnell wasn't a witch, but she was the subject of an IRS witch hunt.

IRSGate--

1. we know that IRS Commish Miller and the WH falsely stated that the delays and inappropriate questions came exclusively from a small group in the Cinn Office;

2. a 48 year NonProfit Org IRS veteran atty has testified that the IRS GC intervened and slowed all TP reviews from spring 2010 through summer 2011;

3. Is there a connection between the GC and WH?

4. Lois Lerner copped to the 5th.

Based on 1,2 and 4 NO benefit of the doubt goes to the WH-- NONE. Based on their previous proven false statements (Miller's under oath) the likelihood of 3. being true is very strong. The WH was desperate to keep DEM control of the House and Senate in 2010 elections, and the TP threatened that, so they used the IRS to minimize TP fundraising and effectiveness.

OK WH/Dems, le's see the proof that isn't true.

Based on 1,, the

--Yet Marco Rubio wants to let millions more of these predators into our country. Why does Marco Rubio hate black children?--

Well, presumably because he's a typical Hispanic and may very well eat small black children as well.

The real question is why Barry would sign a bill co sponsored by an African American eating Hispanic that might very well result in a grisly end for his own children.
Why does Barack hate Malia and Sasha?

Why does Barack hate Malia and Sasha?

It all started when he was punished with them...

Indeed. Think of what he had to go through to father children.

IRSGate--

The Treasury IG is swearing that the 2010-2011 TP abuse was exclusively anti- Conservative, no anti-prog work at that time. Hopefully, the IG can testify to what the IRS GC office was doing-- in any event the GC and his people will be 'invited' to testify next. One more step to the WH.. and the step from the GC to the WH is a small one.

centralcal

NK: Smaller step than you may think.

“..,As a partner at Washington D.C. law firm WilmerHale in 2008, Mr. Wilkins helped lead the defense of Chicago Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s United Church of Christ when the IRS investigated then Senator Barack Obama’s involvement with the church for any violations of its 501(c)(3) status. “We were so interested in the case we offered to do it pro bono,” Mr. Wilkins told The American Lawyer at the time…”

Pro bono? Ahem....needy church? Hardly.

Holy cow! I woke up today and saw that the NY Times is hypocritical and inconsistent. (h/t Best of Web)

◾"New York's infant United States Senate race has no official candidates, but it does have an issue. Hillary Rodham Clinton has fewer local roots than a giant cactus, and her potential opponents are already playing the carpetbagger card. . . . But it's not really unusual for a politician to go shopping for a winnable district in which to roost. . . . Our forefathers always believed that home is where the opportunities are."--Gail Collins, New York Times, June 10, 1999
◾"Dick Cheney's daughter wants to be a senator! To give Wyoming a conservative voice! Well, it's about time somebody thought of that. . . . But a couple of problems with that. . . . One is that [Elizabeth] Cheney only moved to Wyoming last fall."--Gail Collins, New York Times, July 18, 2013

NJJan

As long as Issa and crew continue to follow through, I think the WH role in IRS blocking TP is going to explode and start an avalanche roadblocking dem hopefuls. That is unless repubs manage to turn voters off even more which they are fully capable of doing.

Gus

Robert Kennedy was a wonderful Senator for NY!!
Bobby spent his entire life in the Empire State and served half a term in the Senate there.

I stopped watching. There were hardly any questions....mostly statements & speeches by the politicians.

Justice Department has put a hold on the Zimmerman evidence.

Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.

We are damned as a country of constitutional principles and freedom.

I am ashamed and embarrassed for what the progs have done to our once great society.

Marco Rubio continues to be a dynamic threat to Democrats, who take cheap shots at his most conspicuous vulnerability, which is that he has been conflicted on issues regarding immigration ever since Governor Jan Brewer introduced her legislation in Arizona. What's interesting is that his most vocal critics share his views, views of their party, too.which coincide with the DNC's agenda, but not to the extent that those liars, exaggerators and distorters say that he does. Marco is no dummy. Listen to his nuances. He is doing just fine. He will emerge a hero to all Americans, new and old, alike.

JIB-

Holder et al are really this dumb aren't they.

Afternoon all.

centralcal

Some semblance of sanity - Charles Barkley agrees with the Zimmerman verdict (He, too, does not have all his facts straight, but at least he is looking at this sensibly) and takes on the media for their role in fanning race issues.

Rob Crawford
Holder et al are really this dumb aren't they.

Yep.

jimmyk

Barkley flirted with being a Republican for a while. I'm sure I've told the anecdote of how his mother said "Charles! They're only for the rich people," to which Charles responded, "But Mom, I AM rich!"

rich@gmu

Barkley? In the "I'm not a role model?" sense...

and I tried to post a link the Detroit Free Press about the either already filed or pending bankruptcy. Unsurprising I suppose (some claims Orr wants to pay out at 10 cents on the dollar).

Nick N.Y

The descendants of those "wetbacks" are going to outnumber your descendants 3 to 1, and they've served with honor and distinction in every war that we've fought in the past 150 years, and proportionately, more of them put their lives on the line in law enforcement, and they're nice people. Can you and your relatives say the same?

Threadkiller

You mean the lawful immigrants?

Hardly an argument.

Rob Crawford

Anyone notice how the people who call us all "racists" are the most likely to use racial slurs?

Threadkiller

To be fair, Rob, I started that one.

rich@gmu

narciso-

The administration probably can't point to one. Great investment!

Can you and your relatives say the same?

Yes. Why?

rich@gmu

narciso-

thanks for the link. still kinda spotty posting here.

NK

Charles B is not very smart-- he is clever in the ways of making money and celebrity I give him that-- but he has a good friend who is extremely smart and in his young days was a conservative Repub-- Greg Anthony. I'd be curious to see Greg Anthony's take on matters GZ trial.

What the DoJ has done is raised the hopes beyond retreat. They will do more damage with their base now by not going ahead. Its a done deal.

Sorry - posted the above to the WRONG thread!!! :(

Yikes! So with this whole bread-and-circuses show "of outrage", Holder et al can appear reasonable and appease the mob with federal charges...

Idaho is starting to look attractive.

CentralCal-- wow, I didn't realize that the IRS GC is such an Obamaniac hatchetman-- this was a disgusting political attack on the TP by abusing the IRS-- it will come out;

JiB-- I think you're right about Holder prosecuting GZ for the reasons you state; plus some racial mayhem suits Obummer, it will distract from the fact he's killed the job market and economic growth.

Cheney hadn't been in Wyoming, since 1968, so it's not surprising that Liz follows in her father's footsteps.

Could someone dig up the Gail Collins articles in which she was upset about Mrs. Cigar Shover and Professor Lizzie carpetbagging their way into the Senate?

Dave, did you see MarkO's 4:01?

When I saw her column, I had a hunch she'd said something opposite about Hillary!, but only searched in 2000, so I missed it. Yes, I should spend my time more wisely.

With Detroit's bankruptcy, will they still be able to afford to fix the holes in overpasses with plywood sheets?

Did you see the bit about ODonnell?

Rove after state officials illegally accessed her tax records and the IRS illegally slapped a lien on her house::ROVE: Well, I mean, it's the law, and then when she had a federal tax lien slapped on her in 2010, she said she's puzzled by it.

and Rove wonders why he wasn't targeted by the IRS?

jimmyK and Janet,

As I understand it the Sanford PD has to keep the evidence sealed but GZ has his gun back and that is the most major of all evidence since it was the device that killed TM.

If I was GZ I am on my way to Peru for an extended vacation. If my government was going to do this to me its not my government anymore.

Old Lurker

There are not many Republican Senators for whom I would not prefer Liz Cheney. Any state she likes is OK with me.

Did I get all my negatives in the right places there?...but you know what I mean.

Gus

I heard that DANA got...(hehehehehe) SHITCANNED.
Harry Reid told me.

Dana Ward Gilbert is no longer listed on the faculty page of the Pitzer website. Pitzer is a liberal arts college on the left coast and evidently even he and his asinine comments are even too much for them.

Pigs fly.

Janet  --- -... .- -- .- ... ..- -.-. -.- ...

Thanks JiB & jimmyk. I'm always passing info on on FB.

JIB

I think LIz Cheney is one of the most articulate people on terrorism and national security I have heard. Since this is the primary responsibility of the Federal government, not healthcare or legalizing illegal immigration or spying on its citizens, she has my Wyoming vote.

I'll ask my local SEIU representative how to do that.

rich@gmu

JIB-

If I was GZ I am on my way to Peru for an extended vacation.

Hope so for his sake, but isn't his wife still under indictment and the federal government could do something to his passport (if he has one). I suppose they both could go to the Peruvian Embassy an claim asylum.

rich@gmu

and seek political asylum...

Gorda most foul:

"On Tuesday I raised the question of why none of the Benghazi survivors, whether State Department, CIA, or private security contract employees have testified publicly before Congress," said Wolf.

"According to trusted sources that have contacted my office, many if not all of the survivors of the Benghazi attacks along with others at the Department of Defense, the CIA have been asked or directed to sign additional non-disclosure agreements about their involvement in the Benghazi attacks. Some of these new NDAs, as they call them, I have been told were signed as recently as this summer."

Wolf continued: "It is worth noting that the Marine Corps Times yesterday reported that the Marine colonel whose task force was responsible for special operations in northern and western Africa at the time of the attack is still on active duty despite claims that he retired. And therefore could not be forced to testify before Congress.

Rob Crawford

Sounds like the Pisser Formerly of Pitzer is supremely butthurt tonight.

Rob Crawford

I can't believe an NDA would stand against a subpoena. Particularly a Congressional subpoena.

JIB

Rob,

If their jobs depend on it - it does. It lets the regime let them go and suspend their pensions for example. They can sue but you know how that will go.

Perhaps there are some there who don't give a shit and will do the right thing.

NK

Standard NDAs explicily except testimony 'required by applcable law', but usually the contractor must notify the agency to give the agency an opportunity to quash or limit the subpoena. And I agree with RobC that if these 'post event' NDAs were written to prevent lawfully subpoenaed testimony, the court won't enforce them, the court may require closed session for classified info, but the witnesses will have to testify to Congress.

Rob Crawford

So Jesse Jacka$$ has called for a boycott of Florida as an "apartheid state". Must be a new pro-Hispanic form of apartheid; I can't imagine it would have gone over in South America.

And it's an odd form, too, as the laws that have him spewing venom provide more protection to the people he says they oppress than anyone else.

But his call has reached me, and I will pay it the respect it deserves.

I'm going to Disney World.

(Well, not right now. Right now I'm going to the range to try out a new firearm.)

Gus

DANA BEUHLERS' YEAR OFF!! Hahahahahahahahaha!!

Harry Reid told me, Dana got SHITCANNED.

NK

JiB-- I beleiev alot of the Benghazi witnesses are 'contract' workers, so pension threats wouldn't apply. Loss of contract work would though.

Rob Crawford
If their jobs depend on it - it does. It lets the regime let them go and suspend their pensions for example. They can sue but you know how that will go.

The Constitution gives the Congress the power of subpoena and the Supremes have held that power up and given it some teeth, AFAICR.

Can a contract compel you to break the law? Doesn't that void the contract?

OK, I get that this administration isn't really in favor of the rule of law, but...

NK

RobC rightly points out that the NDA can't invalidate lawful Congressional subpoena, so Congress will get its way and get their testimony-- eventually. JIB correctly points out the leverage the Admin thugs have, I mean they did get these NDA's signed in the first place. That shows that the thug tactiscs were effective and that will probably continue. Hopefully some of the contractors go confidential whistleblower out of patriotism and decency. We'll see.

Rick Ballard

Moody's sent a Chicago message to the Detroit au Prince BK referee. A Govmo type rape of bondholders in favor of already overly favored pensioners will be paid for by every underfunded Blue Hell.

Snyder's letter re the Detroit Democrat Dump is crystal clear. His refusal to further burden the productive citizens of Michigan with paying for Detroit parasites is on a par with Walker's reforms in Wisconsin.

JIB

I agree that if they are contractors the NDA is meaningless unless they value their government employment more than letting us know what happened. If I was those guys I would find a pro bono law outfit that protects whistleblowers and start speaking out.

Gmax

Can I take Jessie Jack@ss at his word? I would like nothing better than to live in a place that I never have to share with him and any of his rainbow coalition grifters and race baiters...

NK

RickB-- will Snyder file a petiton in bankruptcy court tomorrow?

JiB-- I hope the Benghazi contractors have your conviction and courage. They actually would be protected whistleblowers. Here's hoping.

We are back in August for a wedding at St. Pat's. Staying at the Waldorf. August 23 to 26th. Going to first day of US Open at Flushing Meadows. Frederick wants to see real tennis pros after all his tennis camp activity.

Don't know if we have any time for a meet up since our schedule seems fully booked with all the pre wedding and post wedding stuff.

JiB I intend to join you as soon as SMax heads off to college.

Rick, so is Detroit simply the first to run out of OPM? How much longer can California and Illinois hang on?

NK,

The link is to Snyder's letter formally authorizing Orr to file. Orr has already filed.

The first battle of the OPM Wars has been joined and Snyder stands with the productive rather than the progressive parasites.

I really do appreciate the aggressiveness displayed by Moody's in cutting Chicago's rating three notches. It's a very solid warning salvo (rather than a warning shot).
