    Why don’t they ever ask for the printed copies of the emails that are required by law?

  • [1] June 17, 2014 at 12:49pm

    Ignoring the fact that they say they can’t recover the emails……. Where the the paper copies, that are required by law, of all of these emails?

    Holder will not do anything… Time to arrest her and place her in the capitol jail.

    In 1821, the Supreme Court upheld Congress’s right to hold people in contempt and imprison them. Without this power, the court ruled, Congress would “be exposed to every indignity and interruption, that rudeness, caprice, or even conspiracy, may mediate against it.” Later, in a 1927 case arising from the Teapot Dome scandal, the court upheld the Senate’s arrest of the brother of a former attorney general — carried out in Ohio by the deputy sergeant at arms — for ignoring a subpoena to testify.

    I’d encourage our congressional leaders to do do a little reading about the “Take Care Clause” of the constitution. Explained here: http://www.heritage.org/consti…ake-care-clause

    A quote from the above – : To be sure, the extent of the faithful-execution duty is rather unclear. Plainly, the President need not enforce every law to its fullest extent. Common sense suggests that the President may enjoy some discretion in order to gauge the costs and benefits of investigation, apprehension, and prosecution. Moreover, the pardon power (see Article II, Section 2, Clause 1) supplies a constitutional reason for concluding that the President need not enforce the law every time he feels there is a violation, for, notwithstanding his faithful-execution duty, the President may pardon an offense even before a trial or conviction. It is also possible that the clause does nothing more than incorporate the English Bill of Rights provisions that forbade the Crown from dispensing or suspending the law. Under this reading of the clause, the President can neither authorize violations of the law (he cannot issue dispensations) nor can he nullify a law (he cannot suspend its operation). He has, nonetheless, very wide discretion in enforcing the criminal law.

    What will the world say if a US cruise missile detonates a stockpile of chemical weapons that goes on to kill thousands? Either side in the Syrian debacle could set off those weapons and say that we caused it.

    I always told my daughter; “When making critical decisions ask yourself these 2 questions (and then weigh the answers) : What is the best possible outcome? and What is the worst possible outcome?”

    In this case:
    Best possible – we degrade al-Assad’s ability to use these weapons and he turns into a peace loving kind of guy.
    Worst possible: we set off a stockpile killing thousands and thus start the world down the path to WWIII.

    Hmmmm……

    I agree… definitely setting everything up so that it is a win/win situation for himself.

    I’d like to take this moment to perform a little word substitution exercise with one of his quotes today. I would love to see/hear his reaction. Substituted words will be in ALL CAPS:

    I do think that we have to act because if we don’t we are effectively saying that even though we may condemn HIS DISREGARD FOR THE CONSTITUTION and issue resolutions and so forth, somebody who is not shamed by LIEING PUBLICALLY can continue to act with impunity and the RESPECT FOR OUR LAWS, CONSTITUTION AND SOCIETY begin to erode.

    Why hasn’t he called Susan Rice???
    He’s waited so long now that she is in a position that they can claim executive privilege.

    Our form of government relies on honest people being elected and placed in position of power. People that are looking out for the country’s best interest – not their own. Unfortunately the progressives have been able to put in place a group of people that will watch each others back rather than abiding by the constitution.

    We can all look in the mirror and ask the same question of ourselves. We are paying for our country to be destroyed bu progressives.

    Inscribed into the interior of the dome of the Jefferson Memorial:

    “I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”
    - Jefferson to Dr. Benjamin Rush, September 23, 1800

    I wonder if the current president has even laid eyes on these words.

    Lincoln ended his Gettysburg Address with these sentences:
    “The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom— and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

    These are words that we as citizens should live by… we need to throw out the leaders that we’ve come to accept that don’t know the heart and meaning of these words. We MUST challenge our elected officials to return to the founding principles of OUR country!

    Rome burned…. not room… typing too quickly

  • May 14, 2013 at 1:25pm

    If every denial of knowledge is true, then Obama is by far the most disconnected world leader – in history – outside of possibly Nero… who fiddled while room burned.

    Persecute, then lie, then deny, then delay and finally pin it on some unknown low level minion.
    This is their playbook.
