Michele Bachmann

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

If someone does a cartoon of Bennett when he hangs it up they could draw some knee pads on hanging on a hook. Well worn knee pads.

I want to talk about Benghazi. Just how many terrorists did those two former Navy Seals take out as they ran TOWARD the fire. I have been told that they killed over 60 Radical Islamic Muslims before being killed by over 100 attackers. Our embassy property is still not secure and the story is being suppressed by Obama.

Clay, welcome back, I thought you had taken disability due to a cramp in your left hand. The Bachman story is minor compared to the IRS scandal. It's the IRS officials and Obama's executive branch that needs the foil because they indeed think they are bullet proof. Clay, put down the doobie and be a real cartoonajournalist or whatever the hell you are and cover the real news for a change. How about a toon featuring Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton behind bars? You simple minded victimized Army brat weasel!

Keep those in D.C. chasing rabbits and occupied and the economy may continue to improve. The lawyer laden congress will never do anything to reduce the number of laws, they just keep adding and adding. Congress will never realize or admit that anything government intervenes or participates in becomes more costly.

fairmon said...

Holder may be the holder of a losing hand. Did he mislead congress when he said he knew nothing about the journalist phone records being obtained or did he mislead the judge signing and approving the warrant? Is he a legal Houdini? He has been so far as shown in the guns to Mexico investigation which yielded nothing thus far and appears to have been dropped.

Perhaps the best representation of a religious nutter claiming the Tea Party as her domain. Embarrassingly delusional as a True Believer in a Christian Theocracy, the sane Tea Partiers (all 16 of them) should be glad to see her go.

I remember when she announced her candidacy for President and some called her a "rock star." The only thing rocky about her is her fossilized brain.

Here's a few of her brilliant thoughts.

http://tinyurl.com/pwchb9m

http://tinyurl.com/clmbneo

Her Christian Reconstruction views and lack of historical knowledge makes her an ideal candidate for the Westboro Baptist Church as a submissive woman praying for the rapture and making signs, "God Hates Everything!"

Let's hope her hair and make-up survive her ascension into heaven for the glory of her favorite lord and savior, Saint Ignorance of Intolerance.

Is there anyone out there who can honestly and with a straight face defend that woman and most of her remarks?

Politifact has evaluated 59 statements she has made since 2009. 5 are rated true. 4 - mostly true. 6 - half-true. 8 - mostly false. 21- totally false. And a stunning 15 - pants on fire.

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2013/may/29/michele-bachmann-truth-o-meter-politifact/

She's a Tea-Party favorite. If she continues to speak for the Tea-Party movement, a movement getting a little temporary limelight at the moment, claiming victim status in this faux IRS scandal, which is not going to play out as many hope it will, look for the Tea-Party to slip back under the rock that it has emerged from.

She's battier than Sarah Palin is, and when was the last time we head from that woman?

Conservatives need to find someone with just a little bit of sense, style, and with a functioning brain that doesn't misfire all the time, like Condoleeza Rice.

Good riddance.

I wish we were talking about an entire Congress announcing their retirement, but...Michele wanted a little attention, and so she got it.

It is true that Tim Johnson (SD), Jay Rockefeller (WV), Tom Harkin (IA), Carl Levin (MI), and Frank Lautenberg (NJ) have all announced their retirement.

In addition to those Democrats, Republicans Mike Johanns (NE) after serving only one term, and Saxby Chambliss (GA) have made their announcements as well.

Will Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner, and Mitch McConnell follow suit?

We can only hope.

As for Democrat Skank Ho Hags......1. Hillary "Benghazi" Clinton. 2. Fla. Congresswoman Debbie "I look like I just woke up"Wasserman Schultz, Barbara "Dike" Mcculsky, and Joe "Botox" Biden, he is actually a transexual and there is nothin wrong with that! Alpo.....you want to get rid of Pelosi and Harry Reid......Riiiiiiiight. You are just deflecting incoming in advance. Harry Reid's voice and Nancy Pelosi's face makes me projectile vomit.

Sir, I was never arrested. My wife was not arrested. It was ONE check. It was a mistake and a complete oversight by my wife. I might be a CPA but my wife is not.

I received a courtesy call when the warrant was issued, which by the way, was issued in error, as the merchant did not follow Georgia law when attempting to collect. He did not send a ten-day letter to us.

Rather than to let the whole thing go through court, I made immediate restitution, kept my wife from being arrested, took complete responsibility for it, had the record expunged, and everyone was happy.

"Uhhhh, not a good idea to call Alprova to do your taxes."

Sir, with the exception of a few friends and family, I don't do personal tax returns.

"We already know that Alpo is morally and politically bankrupt."

People who attempt to speak for others often wind up with egg on their faces. And given the content of your posts, the fact that you admit to drinking like a fish, I find any comparison of morality coming from you to be quite ridiculous.

"as for Michelle Bachman, at least she can balance her checkbook."

That may be the only thing she can do ethically.

"Democrats always trash black Republicans like myself and women."

Oh please. You're no more black than I am.

"Leftist secular humanist elitist Marxist Democrats, some that can't balance their checkbooks, are a compassionate, well balanced bunch."

I know that in your world of fantasy, you have never in your entire life made a mistake.

I have no problem or shame in admitting mine, or as it was in this case, those of my wife.

Maximus said...

Like your Democrat buddies you are trying to re-write history. I'm pretty sure you documented that both you and your wife bounced checks and I am pleased to hear that you do not do taxes. What a relief!

I don't appreciate your comment about my race. We blacks are not all Democrats on welfare. You are using a hate filled stereotype. Why can't you accept diversity? I feel so violated.

Great commentary by E.J. Dionne . . . and another addition for U.S. dictionaries:

Bachmannism – a substitution of accusations for ideas and paranoia for an agenda

“The Minnesota right-winger deserves to be memorialized with an “ism” because she perfected a tactic well-suited to the current media environment: continually toss out outlandish, baseless charges, and, eventually, some of them will enter the mainstream media—if, at first, only in the form of “coverage” of what conservative radio shows, websites or Fox News are talking about. . .

. . . My nominee for the ultimate in Bachmannism was her slander against the program encouraging citizens to serve the nation and each other. Opposing a bill to expand AmeriCorps, she warned that “there are provisions for what I would call re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward and then they have to go to work in some of these politically correct forums.” Cambodia under the Khmer Rouge is just around the corner.

Bachmann’s retirement should foster some soul-searching about the nature of our political discourse and how easy it is for falsehood and innuendo to get treated as just one more element in the conversation—no more or less legitimate than any other.

This is the very sort of relativism (“my ‘truth’ is as good as your ‘truth’”) that sound conservatives condemn. It ends in nihilism.

Bob Dole, one of those sound conservatives and a revered party warhorse, wanted his party to shut down for a while so it could “spend that time going over ideas and positive agendas.” Bachmannism substitutes accusations for ideas and paranoia for an agenda. Alas, there’s little reason to think it will leave the stage with her.”

“As far as the IRS’s role in Obamacare, now that’s chilling, because if you noticed, the IRS is deeply involved in implementing Obamacare; they’re on the front lines of it.”

“The IRS is gonna go through the country asking people, ‘What kind of prove to us that you have health insurance,’ ‘prove to us that the health insurance you have is adequate.”

And if you don’t have health insurance, ‘Pay us $2,000 or a similar fine or fee or tax as a result of failing to get health insurance.’” [Junior Senator Marco Rubio]

Much of what she has said has been completely wrong and completely off of the wall. It certainly makes me wonder what her backers really want this Republic to turn into? Remember what EX Senator Dole said last week? Look it up.

How long have we had and are having attacks from, the non Government groups, the Capitalist, lobbist, anong the personal attacks, the lying and the misinformation, fraud from greed, BIAS, the religious groups wanting to control the mix, anti union, and the global economy; etc, destroying the proper balance needed for for everybody?

Not only does Obama have a Weather Weapon (see Alex Jones web site) he also has a Brain Control Ray.

From Michele B's Republican Tin Foil Diaries:

During a House discussion of a bill that will ban insurance companies from covering abortion insurance under general healthcare plans, Republican Rep. Pete DeGraaf of Kansas said women needed to "plan ahead" for being raped and possibly impregnated against their will. Women could get around this if they purchased separate, "abortion-only policies."

Degraaf's reasoning:

"We do need to plan ahead, don't we, in life?"

"I have a spare tire on my car."

"I also have life insurance,"

"I have a lot of things that I plan ahead for."

LaughingBoy,

"Guam may be capsized" trumps anything said by Bachmann."

Hank Johnson is known for his dry sense of humor by his constituents. What you probably don't know about Guam is that the 209 square mile island has several military installations. Those bases take up 29% (39,000 acres) of the total land area of Guam. Let me repeat: United States military bases take up nearly a third of all land area in Guam.

The influx of military personnel that Hank Johnson was "worried" about would have increased the TOTAL population of Guam by 45%.

Most people that know Hank Johnson and his sense of humor believe he was exposing the insanity of turning Guam into, basically, a stationary carrier (and U.S military parking lot) in the Western Pacific. Johnson clarified his humor and what he meant later.

It's also important to note that the man Hank Johnson was talking to when he made that quote (Admiral Robert Willard) is a friend of Mr. Johnson.


That aside, I don't think that quote trumps Bachmann's greatest hits like confusing John Wayne and John Wayne Gacy. Or saying earthquakes and hurricanes were messages from God. Or that the HPV vaccine will cause mental retardation. Or saying carbon dioxide isn't harmful.

See Republican Senator Rubio Run. . . while struggling to apply “Bachmannism” . . . a substitution of accusations for ideas and paranoia for an agenda.”


Last month in San Diego, attorney Robert E. Barnes filed a suit alleging that 15 IRS agents illegally seized the medical records of 10 million Americans.

”No search warrant authorized the seizure of these records; no subpoena authorized the seizure of these records; none of the 10,000,000 Americans were under any kind of known criminal or civil investigation and their medical records had no relevance whatsoever to the IRS search,” the suit contends.

The “John Doe Company” is actually a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) “secure facility,” meaning that it maintains sensitive data on patients that require security measures to be followed. The data include files on psychological counseling, gynecological counseling, sexual and drug treatment, as well as other sensitive medical treatment information.

”Despite knowing that these medical records were not within the scope of the warrant, defendants threatened to ‘rip’ the servers containing the medical data out of the building if IT personnel would not voluntarily hand them over,” the complaint reads. “Moreover, even though defendants knew that the records they were seizing were not included within the scope of the search warrant, the defendants nonetheless searched and seized the records without making any attempt to segregate the files from those that could possibly be related to the search warrant. In fact, no effort was made at all to even try maintaining the illusion of legitimacy and legality.”

According to the suit, the IRS had a search warrant authorizing the seizure ”of financial records related principally to a former employee of the company.” Yet IRS agents not only seized the medical records, but “personal mobile phones, including all the data and information on those phones, without any employing the proper and procedurally correct screening methods to protect private and privileged information, all of which was completely unapproved by the search warrant.”

The theft of data is so large it affects ”roughly one out of every twenty-five adult American citizens,” the complaint states. It further notes that the IRS refuses to reveal which agents participated in the seizure, who saw the records, or where they are currently located.

The complaint seeks $25,000 in compensatory damages “per violation per individual,” plus punitive damages for constitutional violations.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) posted a YouTube video reminding Americans of the IRS’s ties to ObamaCare. “Now as far as the IRS’s role in Obamacare, well that’s chilling,” Rubio says in the video. “Because if you notice, the IRS is deeply involved in implementing Obamacare. They’re on the front lines of it.”

Rubio may be understating the case. When the healthcare bill is fully rolled out next year, it will require 2,137 IRS agents to implement and police its requirements. Moreover, a recent report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration reveals that the tax provisions included in ObamaCare “represent the largest set of tax law changes the IRS has had to implement in more than 20 years.”

Plain_Jack_Dennis,

"That the IRS is involved in obama care is enough on its own to repeal the runaway train."

It's not getting repealed.

"Most people don't like it,"

That's misleading. Most people (including a majority of Republicans) favor Obamacare's main provisions i.e. health care exchanges, subsidies for uninsured, coverage for young adults, and covering pre-existing conditions.

One of the newest polls by CNN/ORC International found that 54% of people opposed Obamacare, but 16% of that 54% opposed it because it doesn't go far enough. Thus, the 43% that support Obamacare are much more likely to side with that 16% that wanted Obamacare to reach further than with the 35% that oppose Obamacare because it is too liberal.

I'll break it down even further: You're wrong.

"but IS Obama's only achievement."

Your dementia has settled in nicely.

Here's a short list of President Obama's achievements:

Had Osama Bin Laden killed.

Ended the war in Iraq.

Wall Street reform.

Passed Stimulus package that saved/created several million jobs.

Saved the auto industry.

Repealed "Don't ask, Don't tell.

Expanded stem cell research.

Passed CHIP.

"All in the eye of the beholder, Easy."

Wrong, facts are not in the eye of the beholder. And your opinion of President Obama's achievements is demonstrably incorrect.

"The man is mediocre at best."

**Your opinion, which is not based on facts, has been duly noted.

However, if those accomplishments can be regarded as "mediocre", there have been very few President's in U.S. history that have been more than "mediocre".

Mysterious class action suit accuses 15 unknown - but must corrupt and abusive - IRS agents of unlawfully stealing intimate medical records of 10 million unknown people - including intimate medical records of every state judge in California.


Plaintiff's attorney Robert E. Barnes declined to elaborate on the complaint's allegations, saying he will have more information "in a few months."*

"I had to file to protect against the statute of limitations being an issue, but am still investigating all facts," Barnes told Courthouse News in an email.

Patriot1,

"Laughing boy is correct....this is golden, from an intellectual liberal"

Try again, intellectual/dense/oblivious conservative.

Hank Johnson is known for his dry sense of humor by his constituents. What you probably don't know about Guam is that the 209 square mile island has several military installations. Those bases take up 29% (39,000 acres) of the total land area of Guam. Let me repeat: United States military bases take up nearly a third of all land area in Guam.

The influx of military personnel that Hank Johnson was "worried" about would have increased the TOTAL population of Guam by 45%.

Most people that know Hank Johnson and his sense of humor believe he was exposing the insanity of turning Guam into, basically, a stationary carrier (and U.S military parking lot) in the Western Pacific. Johnson clarified his humor and what he meant later.

It's also important to note that the man Hank Johnson was talking to when he made that quote (Admiral Robert Willard) is a friend of Mr. Johnson.


That aside, I don't think that quote, even if misunderstood and taken out of context like you are doing, trumps Bachmann's greatest hits like confusing John Wayne and John Wayne Gacy. Or saying earthquakes and hurricanes were messages from God. Or that the HPV vaccine will cause mental retardation. Or saying carbon dioxide isn't harmful.

the guns to Mexico investigation which yielded nothing thus far and appears to have been dropped.


By: John Hayward

The House of Representatives on Thursday voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for his refusal to turn over subpoenaed documents in the Operation Fast and Furious case.

The vote drew support from 17 Democrats – which is more Democrat votes than any Obama budget has ever gotten. The rest of the Democrat Party literally fled the chamber, staging a mass walk-out to protest the vote. One member voted “present,” which was the hallmark of Barack Obama’s Senate career.

Earlier, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi actually got the name of slain U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry wrong, calling him “Brian Taylor,” so you can tell she cared deeply about this case.

As for the contempt vote against Holder, Issa said, “We’re here today because when we asked questions about Brian Terry’s murder, about Fast and Furious, we were lied to. We were lied to repeatedly, over a ten-month period.”

Attorney General Holder did not take the results of the contempt vote terribly well. He held an angry press conference in which he dismissed the charges as “reckless,” and said they were accompanied by “truly absurd, truly absurd conspiracy theories.” This is presumably a reference to the growing belief that the true purpose of Operation Fast and Furious was to push American guns into Mexico, for domestic political purposes.


Of course when the referral was sent to the DOJ, Holder simply had his thug right hand assistant refuse to pursue it.

How convenient.

The House also passed a civil contempt measure 258-95. This allowed the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to go to court with a civil lawsuit and pursue charges against the DOJ for not producing the documents that were subpoenaed. The last I heard was that a federal judge had this under advisement.

How these court cases turn out is beside the point now as this will just be added to the list of items to remove Holder from office if Obama doesn’t fire him.

Michele Bachmann: A Fact Checker’s dream Posted by Glenn Kessler http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/post/michele-bachmann-a-fact-checkers-dream/2013/05/29/1481a6b8-c85e-11e2-9245-773c0123c027_blog.html 05/29/2013

The announcement that Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is not seeking reelection will leave the Capitol a much less interesting place to fact check. As one of our colleagues put it, “The entire fact checking industry may have to hold a national day of mourning.”

Bachmann is not just fast and loose with the facts; she is consistently and unapologetically so. No other lawmaker earned as high a percentage of Four-Pinocchio ratings as Bachmann — and she earned an average of more than Three Pinocchios as a presidential candidate. Thus she provided a window into the no-holds-barred politics that has come to characterize modern-day Washington.

Just this year, she has earned four Four-Pinocchio ratings. Below are links to those columns — as well as a round-up of her worst campaign-related comments. Click on the headline to read the full column.

‘Barack Obama has a $1.4 billion-a-year presidency of perks and excess’

Bachmann claimed that President Obama spent $1.4 billion on perks in the White House. But most of this money was for Secret Service protection and helicopters — and Obama’s spending appeared to be lower than that for George W. Bush.

[This garnered four Pinnocchios]

‘70 percent of food stamps go to bureaucrats’ Bachmann claimed that 70 percent of the food stamp budget went to Washington bureaucrats. This turned out to be an extreme misinterpretation of the data. The actual amount of the food stamp budget that goes to the “bureaucrats” who manage the program is less than one-third of 1 percent. Even counting all administrative expenses only adds up to 6 percent.

[This garnered four Pinnocchios]

‘I voted against the sequester bill because of cuts to the poor’ This was an odd bit of revisionist history. She did vote against the law that established the sequester, but because she said it did not cut spending enough. She began to express concerns about the impact on the poor only after the sequester kicked in.

[This garnered four Pinnocchios]

‘The most personal, sensitive, intimate, private health-care information is in the hands of the IRS’ Bachmann leaped onto the bash-the-IRS bandwagon with this false claim that the tax agency would have control of personal health-care information as a result of President Obama’s health-care law. But no data would be stored in any sort of database, as she claimed.

[This garnered four Pinnocchios]

‘I don’t think I said anything inaccurate in the debates’ After Bachmann patted herself on the back for her debate performance, we produced this round-up of her major-league errors.

[This garnered four Pinnocchios]

And lest the right forget: Operation Fast 'n Furious was the same old the Bushy "Operation Wide Receiver", gunning running into Mexico dressed in drag.


“Dubbed "Operation Wide Receiver," the Bush-era operation was run out of Tucson between 2006 and 2007, ending before Bush left office and before Fast and Furious began under Obama in 2009. The differences between it and Fast and Furious are vast, starting with the fact that Wide Receiver produced no dead bodies.

Operation Wide Receiver used the common law enforcement tactic of "controlled delivery" in which the illegal sales of weapons were allowed to take place, the movements of the weapons were closely monitored and the end purchasers were then apprehended. It involved gun-tracing, not gun-walking.

Under the "controlled delivery" of Wide Receiver, agents didn't just write down the serial numbers and let the guns disappear as in Fast and Furious. They closely and physically followed the guns from American dealers to straw purchasers to Mexican buyers.

Most importantly, Wide Receiver was run in close cooperation with Mexican authorities, who were kept in the dark on Fast and Furious.

In contrast ATF agents involved in Fast and Furious have testified that they were ordered not to track the weapons and in cases where interdiction was possible they were ordered to stand down and actually watch the weapons walk.

ATF Special Agent John Dodson has testified how in one instance guns were sold to known illegal buyers who took them to a stash house. Against orders from his superiors, Dodson kept the stash house under surveillance and when a vehicle showed up to transfer the weapons to their ultimate destination, he called for an interdiction team to move in, seize the weapons and arrest the traffickers. His superiors refused, and the guns disappeared without surveillance.

They may blame President Bush and Wide Receiver, but on Fast and Furious President Obama and his press secretary have clearly dropped the ball.”

Bachmann was or is a lose cannon but so are many others in D.C. Disingenuous, misleading, misspoke, lying are all from the same neighborhood and used interchangeably in politics. Which label fits the promise that if you like the health care plan you have nothing changes, absolutely nothing, you can keep what you have, nothing changes no matter what. Which applies to "no new taxes" on those making less than $250K on my watch with most of the new taxes in the AHCA falling on the middle income folks? All the labels are being used to describe Holder's response about the journalist phone records subpoena.

Obama is not experienced or knowledgeable in economic matters and how business systems operate. He has no military experience or knowledge. I think he is a lost ball in high weeds that let's his alligator mouth over load his chickadee arse. However, he is the president and he is the commander and chief so what the hell is McCain doing in Syria without the president requesting him to be? McCain's claim to fame was being a POW which does not make him a military expert. He is out of line making that trip and should be reprimanded in some way, it borders on treason.

Sure, sure, Fairmon. . . We understand. . . You think President Obama should be more like some of these Republicans and their Tea Party folks. . . They know how to operate. . . Just make sure you quote the Bible while you’re doing it:

"WASHINGTON — A Tennessee congressman who supports billions of dollars in cuts to the food stamp program is one of the largest recipients of federal farm subsides, according to new annual data released by a Washington environmental group.

Using Agriculture Department data, researchers at the Environmental Working Group found that Representative Stephen Fincher, a Republican and a farmer from Frog Jump, Tenn., collected nearly $3.5 million in subsidies from 1999 to 2012. The data is part of the research group’s online farm subsidy database from which the group issues a report each year.

In 2012 alone, the data shows, Mr. Fincher received about $70,000 in direct payments, money that is given to farmers and farmland owners, even if they do not grow crops. It is unclear how much Mr. Fincher received in crop insurance subsidies because the names of people receiving the subsidies are not public. The group said most of the agriculture subsidies go to the largest, most profitable farm operations in the country. These farmers have received $265 billion in direct payments and farm insurance subsidies since 1995, federal records show. . .

During debate on the farm bill in the House Agriculture Committee last week, Mr. Fincher was one of the biggest proponents of $20 billion in cuts to food stamps in the legislation. At times he quoted passages from the Bible in defending the cuts.

“We have to remember there is not a big printing press in Washington that continually prints money over and over,” Mr. Fincher said during the debate. “This is other people’s money that Washington is appropriating and spending. . . ”

Scott Faber, vice president of government affairs at the Environmental Working Group, said that Mr. Fincher was being hypocritical. “Not only is he advocating deep cuts to other people’s money while he is getting subsidies, he also voted to increase the subsidies that he benefits from,” Mr. Faber said.”

You assume too much. I only stated the facts about your fantasy man. You have never heard me support a republican or the tea party. You have never heard me make a religious statement except that they should not be tax exempt. Both parties think they can make better decisions for people than the people can make on their own. They both think they can legislate morals. The federal government could be reduced in size by 50% or more without adverse impact on anyone. Departments are never reduced or eliminated, once created they take on a life of their own with no incentive to be efficient but to keep growing. They convince people like you that the world would end without them.

Still true as stated in a 1937 letter from FDR

We face a challenge to the power of government to collect uniformly and fairly, and without discrimination, taxes based on statutes adopted by Congress".

signed by Franklin Roosevelt and dated June 1, 1937.

The tax codes since 1913 have morphed into a 4 ft. high document of over 79,000 pages and growing. Who believes that anyone, including the IRS, understands all of the rules. The IRS has cost many innocent people tremendous sums of money defending their self or dealing with an audit. Many have been ruined by the expense caused by the IRS although there was no wrong doing. There is no recovery of the cost or recourse for the individual.

jt6 said:... “Dubbed "Operation Wide Receiver," the Bush-era operation was run out of Tucson between 2006 and 2007, ending before Bush left office and before Fast and Furious began under Obama in 2009.

Isn't that like Bush standing on that ship and declaring "Operation Over" in Iraq? A war doesn't end when the military pull up stakes and leave, and gun running across the Arizona/Mexican border only ended on paper. Both both war and gun running become too lucrative for everyone involved to behave and quit when told..

  • The differences between it and Fast and Furious are vast, starting with the fact that Wide Receiver produced no dead bodies.*

Actually those involved in Operation Wide Receiver can't give an estimate of how many innocent civilian Mexican lives were lost under Bush's OWR. Are you saying or implying a human life only becomes valuable when it's an American life taken?

Any*WHO here are some other startling revelations on Bush era OWR you failed to mention:


Examiner/tpmmkrckr:

Fast forward to 2009, when the Obama administration took over the Justice Department. The former Gang Unit inside DOJ’s Criminal Division (it later merged with the Organized Crime and Racketeering Section) reviewed the case for possible prosecution. At that time, a federal prosecutor in the unit “learned the ATF Arizona had permitted guns to be transferred to suspected gun traffickers and had not interdicted them,” according to a DOJ official.

“It's amazing how much traction that RFID story gets,” Detty replied. “While there were a couple times during Wide Receiver that tracking devices were placed on cars there was not a single weapon that was outfitted with any kind of tracking instrument.”

“They had a unit that they tried to place in the hollowed out butt of a Yugo AK,” he explained. “While they were trying to get it to work I called a buddy who works with one of the most elite military units in the world. He told me, ‘there will be two limiting factors. One is battery life and the other is that if they have to wrap the antenna around the unit to get it to fit it will never work correctly. I know because we've tried it too.’ He was exactly right! The unit never worked correctly and was never fielded.”

“ATF purchased that Yugo from me and as far as I know it is still in their evidence locker,” Detty continued. “Someone might say, maybe Detty didn't know they put tracking devices on the guns. Well, guns came to me from distributors and went from my possession at my home to the bad guys' possession. There would have been no opportunity for ATF to place tracking devices in any of the guns. While they might have small and effective tracking devices now, my Tucson ATF branch did not have access to anything that would work in 2007.”

No one has to "pile on" the Obama administration. It's apparent he's just an empty suit, going through the motions, a disengaged clown, a wannabe dictator/socialist/commie/tyrant and a lot of other things. "Obamacare", his "legacy" is blowing up right and left, and it hasn't even been fully implemented. He's just an opportunist, like most in politicians these days, in both parties. He's just more "transparent" than most.

This quote is so convoluted and incoherent that it virtually defies a rational response. However let’s try to pare this discussion down to its basics.

The ATF under George Bush instituted a program where weapons were allowed to be purchased illegally and transported across the southern border. The weapons were supposed to be tracked very closely and when they arrived in the hands of the final purchaser all that were involved in the illegal activity of that weapon transfer would be arrested. Many law enforcement agencies use different versions of this technique in crime fighting and it has proven to be very effective.

However during the Bush era program a large number of the guns went missing and because of that it was determined that the program would be terminated. It was bad enough that incompetence lead to this result but what happened later was a disaster.

The Obama administration reactivated this program but rather than just being ran from the Arizona offices it was directed from inside the DOJ in DC. They learned nothing from the errors of the previous activities and in fact took the incompetence to a whole new level. They greatly increased the quantity of weapons, did not inform or coordinate their activities with the Mexican government (which could have been considered an act of war), and made little if any attempt at interdiction.

The Bush administration should have monitored the ATF closer but they did end the program when it resulted in the loss of many weapons. The Obama administration were big enough fools and incompetents that they took the earlier failure and elevated it to new heights. The Obama administration has been stonewalling attempts to investigate their failures and this hasn’t been settled or ended in any way.

No, it’s still the people.

The problem with F&F was not the concept of allowing guns to be bought illegally and traced to apprehend criminals. The problem is that the Obama administration had an example of previous failure in doing this, learned nothing, and were able to still screw it up beyond belief and to a near criminal level.


I'm not defending F&F, just pointing out the glaring double standard the 2nd amendment folks are applying when there's a chance to pile on anyone from Obama's administration.

Oops. . . I forgot that you claim to be a Libertarian. . . For some reason, I have difficulty believing this. . . I also forgot you don’t like the NYT so I’m passing along a Forbes link about the Tea Party’s Rep Fincher to read at your leisure. . . Speaking of which, do you think he could be related to Bachmann? As I recall, she also received government subsidies.

“Tennessee GOP Congressman Stephen Fincher, swept into office in the Tea Party wave of 2010, is on a mission from God.

Armed with an array of proverbs and quotes from the Holy Bible, Congressman Fincher is pressing his fight to dramatically curtail the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)—better known to most Americans as food stamps—relied upon by 47 million Americans for some or all of their daily sustenance.

Why?

Because the Bible tells him so. . .

. . . I wonder if Congressman Fincher would be good enough to refer me to the part of the Bible revealing to us how providing adequate food stamp assistance to those in need violates the teachings of Christianity but venerates accepting government hand-outs in the guise of farm subsidies?

Maybe the Congressman can instruct heathens such as I on how pocketing huge sums of taxpayer money in the guise of farm subsidies is a righteous act, while accepting government subsidies to feed one’s family is an act of—to use Fincher’s own words—stealing from those in the country to give to others in the country?

I don’t ask these questions of Congressman Fincher indiscriminately. I ask them because of Fincher’s unique qualification to provide us with the appropriate proverb intended to instruct.

You see, Representative Fincher happens to be the second largest recipient of farm subsidies in the United States Congress—which might explain why Mr. Fincher would like to decimate the food stamp budget in order to do the Lord’s work when “supporting a proposal to expand crop insurance by $9 billion over the next 10 years.”

Conservatives need to find someone with just a little bit of sense, style, and with a functioning brain that doesn't misfire all the time, like Condoleeza Rice.


Of course she would be perfect and the best part is how the Liberals would treat her fairly. There wouldn’t be any “Oreo’ references, even that she is a house “person”, no obscenely racist cartoons presented by white cartoonists, or implications that she was a kept woman by her white male masters. Definitely wouldn’t be any claims that she is a war criminal for her part in the “crimes” of the Bush administration.

But she would have “style” and for a woman in the public eye that is one of the most important things in determining her worth as a leader.

Right?

As for Michele Bachmann, I think she has provided enough material to last at least a couple of months.

. . . My nominee for the ultimate in Bachmannism was her slander against the program encouraging citizens to serve the nation and each other. Opposing a bill to expand AmeriCorps....


by Matthew Boyle:

The inspector general for the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) got hit with a nearly 50 percent budget cut for 2012, a move that, unless immediately remedied, will stifle the office’s ability to investigate a controversial branch of the Obama administration.

CNCS, and specifically its Americorps division, has been plagued with scandals. Americorps is a federally-funded community service program.

The previous CNCS inspector general, Gerald Walpin, was fired after investigating Sacramento, Calif. Mayor Kevin Johnson — a former NBA star and a Democrat with ties to Obama — over allegations that he misused an $850,000 grant Americorps gave his community group, St. Hope.

Johnson was accused of inappropriately touching young girls, and is alleged to have offered at least one of them $1,000 per month to stay quiet about it and stay at St. Hope.

Other allegations Johnson faced, according to a 2009 congressional report prepared by now House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa and Sen. Chuck Grassley, include Americorps volunteers running errands for Johnson, washing his car and conducting political activities all while on the clock — meaning taxpayers paid the bill.

Walpin also found about $80 million of wasted taxpayer funding through Americorps to the City University of New York, the Washington Times reported. That funding was apparently for a teaching fellowship.

Issa’s and Grassley’s report found that White House officials had moved to fire Walpin without conducting a fair investigation. According to Issa and Grassley, administration officials argued that Walpin was “no longer fit for his job” based on a complaint CNCS Chairman Alan Solomont — a prominent Demcoratic fundraiser — delivered in person to Obama administration lawyer Norm Eisen in the White House parking lot.

The White House had said that it conducted a “thorough” investigation of Walpin’s ability to continue serving as CNCS’s inspector general, but Issa and Grassley found that the White House only interviewed two of CNCS’s nine board members and that the White House took “substantive input from only three people: Chairman Solomont, a prominent Democrat fundraiser; acting CEO [Nicola] Goren and General Counsel [Frank] Trinity.”

Trinity and Goren were subjects of Walpin’s investigation as well. Issa and Grassley cast doubt on the White House’s ability to conduct a fair investigation when the only people they took seriously during their decision to fire Walpin were his “adversaries.”

Washington Post: The Justice Department has allowed us to say AG Holder supports press freedom

by Sean Higgins

Susan Ferrechio reports Friday most news organizations boycotted on principle Attorney General Eric Holder’s offer to join a press conference Thursday in which he discussed the Obama’s White House various efforts to monitor, intimidate and harass journalists. Holder’s condition was that the meeting be “off the record,” meaning none of the reporters would be allowed to report what was said at the meeting.

Among those who did attend was the Washington Post. Today’s Post has an account of the meeting — sort of. That is, they have a story about what the Justice Department allowed them to say about its efforts to protect press freedom.

There was a time when conventional wisdom held that two men having sex with each other was perverted. What were they thinking? What is actually wrong with being obsessed with sex and having, literally, hundred of same sex partners in a lifetime? I mean, that kind of behavior was only responsible for the worldwide spread of AIDS and for the deaths of millions of innocent victims who had no idea that their homosexual partners carried the virus, right? What's the harm, after all?

You can say that Michelle Bachmann is as crazy as an outhouse rat, and you'd be pretty close to right, but geez; she sorta has a point too. If gay men don't want to live the life they find in the gay community, what's wrong with them seeking something different? Is that different from getting a sex change operation? No.

There are also people in the deaf community who disapprove of cures for deafness, but for those who want the cure, what's wrong with providing it?

Live and let live goes both ways. It's okay if someone doesn't want to be gay. Maybe, for them, it IS a choice. Why deny anyone a choice?

I guess it’s similar to rust and rot in the industrial North of the U.S.

The big difference is the storm damage is quickly brushed aside and rebirth is only a short time away.

Rust and rot are like cancer in that you have to excise it from the body or nuke it and do it as early as possible. Anytime now.

The previous CNCS inspector general, Gerald Walpin, was fired after investigating Sacramento, Calif. Mayor Kevin Johnson — a former NBA star and a Democrat with ties to Obama."

Actually, this was E.J. Dionne's nomination for the ultimate in Bachmannism - a substitution of accusations for ideas and paranoia for an agenda. I simply agreed that it was a worthy nomination, but I can tell by reading your posts and accusations that you do not really understand and/or grasp the meaning of Bachmannism. (Sigh)

As for Issa's claims, I must confess that Issa has zero credibility with me. His personal record as a politician clearly demonstrates that he lacks ethics and the fact that he has been placed in a role assessing the ethics of his colleagues is a sick joke. If you doubt this, I suggest you look closely at what he chooses to investigate and what he chooses to ignore.

In regard to the former Inspector General, I specifically recall the bipartisan CNCS Board of Directors unanimously requesting that the White House review his conduct as Inspector General. I also recall that former Inspector General Walpin filed a wrongful termination lawsuit in an effort to get his job back, but a U.S. District Court Judge dismissed his lawsuit.

As for AmeriCorps - unlike the Republicans - I think it’s a great organization:

The corporation is the nation’s largest public service organization, whose best-known program is AmeriCorps (basically a domestic version of the Peace Corps). It provides jobs to about 100,000 people, many of whom are recent college graduates facing one of the worst job markets of any recent generation. AmeriCorps volunteers receive a small stipend for their service and about $5,000 towards college costs. They build houses for Habitat for Humanity, tutor poor inner city kids, clean up parks and serve meals to old people. AmeriCorps volunteers were on the ground in a flash after the Joplin, Missouri tornado, staffing a missing persons hotline and helping with the recovery. It’s stuff like that that’s earned the program bipartisan support over the years.

“MICHAEL ERIC DYSON, MSNBC POLITICAL ANALYST: I think the attorney general should step down too - off of that plateau where he resides in high principle and whip some head. But he shouldn’t give up his office. What he should understand is he's the chief law giver of the United States of America so to speak. He's the Moses of our time, and at least for this administration.

So, yes, some people want to put him outside of the ark of the legal community. That's just ridiculous. He is the bully, he is in one sense the whipping boy for so much of the frustration of the right-wing.

So the current attorney general - mired in so many scandals that folks on both sides of the aisle are calling for either his resignation or termination - according to this MSNBC political analyst is "the Moses of our time."

And the host of the program on this so-called "news network" didn't push back on such an absurd statement.

As NewsBusters reported Wednesday, MSNBC's ratings are in total freefall. After coming in third place amongst cable news outlets in April, MSNBC actually came in fourth in May.

People such as Michael Eric Dyson are part of the reason.

MSNBC has completely abdicated any impartiality in its reporting and is now so clearly an arm of the Democratic Party that people across the fruited plain are turning this channel off.

As I continue to posit, the only question remaining is when cable and satellite providers will move MSNBC away from the real cable news channels on their program guides.

On the other hand, if MSNBC's ratings continue to plummet, maybe this point will become moot.”

Zableedofisterix says: “American troops won't be provided with a hot meal any longer, but illegal aliens can get drivers licenses in Connecticut, and can get financial aid in California. Yeah, liberals know what they're doing.”

I believe you’re getting a little carried with your anti liberal rhetoric, Zablee.

The state of Texas is anything but a liberal state and it allows illegal immigrants to qualify for state financial aid for college, and the same is true in the state of New Mexico, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

In regard to your complaint about the state of Connecticut allowing illegal aliens to get drivers license, Maryland, Illinois and Oregon, also adopted similar legislation this year. Illegal immigrants are already licensed to drive in New Mexico, Washington and Utah.

And as for comment about our U.S. soldiers not being provided a hot meal any longer, it looks like you’ve been less than honest here as well . . . shame on you, Zablee.

"The drawdown in Afghanistan has soldiers in at least one province adjusting to new breakfast policies, and it’s forced the Pentagon to work to set the record straight regarding suggestions that budget cuts have left troops deployed overseas without their morning meal.

A chain email has been circulating online, claiming that “elected officials believe that our military who are deployed overseas don’t have a need for breakfast anymore. . . ”

Hot breakfasts have been discontinued in some areas of Afghanistan to streamline logistics, according to the Defense Department, but officials were quick to note that MREs and often other cold food items like cereal and fruit are still provided.

“Breakfast is an MRE, lunch and dinner are traditionally served hot meals, and the midnight meal is MRE,” officials said. “This has nothing to do with the national budget, and everything to do with our responsible reduction of forces.”

This quote is all over the internet so if someone you don’t like has uttered it before then you can make the determination that magically it belongs to them?


“Unraveling the Story Behind Valerie Jarrett's Bogus 'Payback' Quote”

http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/unraveling-story-behind-valerie-jarretts-bogus-payback-quote


From your link:

“A rep from Jarrett office was in today. She gave us a finish line pep talk and then afterwards, heard her saying how Jarrett is very excited about a 2nd term agenda and a big part of that agenda is to punish everyone who opposed them during the first term and the campaign. Strange that everything was “Ms. Jarrett wants this, and Ms. Jarrett is looking forward to that”. You hardly heard Obama’s name mentioned by her which I guess reinforces what people are saying. Valerie Jarrett really is the power in the White House. I know that when her representative showed up it was like royalty was visiting. All the big dogs were lined up to meet her and acting real friendly and they gave us a heads up an hour before and told us we better “put on a good show” while she was here.”

“The part that really stuck out to me was when I overheard the rep say that Jarrett told them, “After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.” She was talking directly to about three of them. Sr. staff. And she wasn’t trying to be quiet about it at all. And they were all listening and shaking their heads and smiling while she said it.”


A perfectly good unverified quote from an anonymous source in the White House. From the left wing’s wide use of such quotes in their talking points, used against their opponents, this surely must be rated as “qualified” to say the least. By the way as additional verification there appears to be no record of her denying that she actually said this.

May 31, 2013 at 10:59 p.m.

Liberalism is the problem, wherever it is. Whether it's transparent , or whether it's snuck in here and there, same thing. The GOP is just Democrat Party lite. They back liberal policies because they want to be liked by the liberal media.

The GOP is facing a serious problem, but I don't believe the problem has anything to do with liberal policies sneaking into the GOP's political platform. . . Indeed, the GOP should be so lucky. . . No, the group that “sneaked” into the GOP’s politics is toting some heavy right-winger baggage stamped with the Koch Brothers’ John Bircher Society logo.

Jt6gR3hM says: "By the way as additional verification there appears to be no record of her denying that she actually said this."

Sure, sure. Jt. . . I think you along with your crazed hero Glenn Beck are just annoyed that Valerie Jarrett has demonstrated a little class and has ignored your rants and twisted accusations. . . the same kind of class that President Eisenhower demonstrated in the days when those early John Birchers were ranting and calling him a communist.
