    “This is glaringly obvious—no testimony has been disclosed from people interviewed who were on the ground or from national security professionals,” he added .”Instead, the only leaks have been regarding Democrat political figures, and the initial stories have all selectively disclosed testimony to fit with Democrat political narratives.” Wow this guy also lies in writing. Gowdy is well aware of numerous leaks that came from this witch hunt, all of which were designed to hurt Clinton. And based on his own logic, it is doubtful that a Democrat would have leaked stuff that hurt Clinton. And for those of you who believe this guys lies or rationalize them away because you share his ideology or beliefs, well your merely the low information voter he knows you are.

    It seems it is business as usual, by which we mean yet another instance in which the committee has been caught “leaking” something to the press that is in fact completely made up. You do not need to be overly cynical to note that House Republican Benghazi investigations to date have sustained years of momentum for themselves and their budgets solely on supposedly-unauthorized “leaks” that just happen to be manufactured from bungling or lying outright about the evidence that investigation has “collected,” In this case the designated “leaker” manufactured their case by copy-pasting unrelated emails together as if Hillary Clinton had responded to one email that wasn’t her actual response. There are several of these leaks.

    Missy Robertson, whose new book “Blessed, Blessed…Blessed” released this week… Ok your gonna tell me that this story was not a paid promotional piece for the book. For those who don’t see that, they treat you like low information voters cause you are one.

    @Matthew… Interesting point and let me forward a reality from many areas of life that might answer your question why no direct action. Well similar to why we don’t seem to ever “cure” cancer, but know how to treat it better, similar to how we can build much better weapons then we can negotiate peace and why we spend billions fighting the results of poverty as opposed to taking actions to bring jobs back to the US….. because the Anti-Choice movement has become an industry and shame groups like the “Center For Medical Ethics” make money and pay themselves very well to fight the Pro-Choice groups who similarly make money and pay themselves well. So it is in neither ones best interest to ever actually end abortion. Just as it isn’t in the military industrial complex’s best interest to achieve peace or for the cancer research industry to actually eradicate cancer.

    This story is absolute proof that this site is paid by some Anti-Choice Group to keep the fraudulent inferences and assertions alive. At some point repeating and promoting the inferences and assertions of the videos that was DISPROVED by 5 state investigations into Planned Parenthood that found NO criminal, medical ethic or health regulations make you nothing more than an accomplice and as noted perhaps a paid one. And these 5 state investigations, prompted by the videos were in states that would have manufactured evidence of violations if they could.

    Agreed, but then again when you use online and social media marketing to promote a religion the way you would McDona’d's all day breakfast you cheapen it to the point that people regard it as worthy of similar respect.

    Taking a step back i’d say the quality of trash that billy references tweets from says a lot about what he thinks of the group here. Who would even give the time of day to someone who can’t complete a sentence without using a four letter word.

    Stupid discussion from the get go. Who cares what someone would or would not do in the presence of a mentally ill individual who is bent on killing multiple people and himself. There was a time where we had quality media people and journalists who posed serious questions about serious issues. Not just marketing opportunists who seek to create a 48 hour controversy that drives viewers to their show or eye balls to their site.

    As Ryan pointed out, no one with higher aspirations would be dumb enough to want to lead the clown car the House has become. Other than waste taxpayer time and money on nonsensical symbolic votes, politically motivated investigations as noted by McCarthy they have accomplished nothing. And the republicans promised real leadership when they took over Congress. If this is what republican leadership looks like…. there is no wonder they have trouble matching hillary in the polls despite their constant attacks. And while the constant attacks on hillary entertain the low information voters they ultimately drive away the independent voters who, after the zealots on both sides waste their votes, actually elect the President. Independent voters seek real leadership, who look to improve the quality of life in america.

    Ah got it. So while it is objectionable to politicize the Oregon shooting, it is awesome to commercialize it. And isn’t it interesting that the same people who explained away the Charleston church shooter racial motive as nothing more than the actions of a mental ill individual. Want to promote propaganda that the Oregon shooter was indicative of a war on Christianity. The Oregon shooter also was enamored with the Irish Republican Army a Catholic terrorist group. So where did he shoot individuals who said they were Catholic. If it is in the leg, you have nothing more than one christian killing another.

    More likely some “american” shell company who has them made in China at a level that does not meet the reported specifications or safety standards, pays $2.50 for them and sells them for $29.95 so the executives and investors can collect undeserved compensation. If it is a flaw in the batteries, let’s hope the company will be held responsible.

    Dry conditions don’t change the fact the owner is responsible for any and all damage that resulted, including repairing the terrain of the park. Or do we not advocate for personal responsibility in these instances?

    While the conservative caucus is no doubt rather dumb and childish relative to their statements and behavior on most issues they nailed it on this one. McCarthy is either suffering from extreme dyslexia, some other mental or emotional disorder or he is one of the dumbest people in Congress…. and that is a tough bar to get under.

    I could care less if and how he plays golf and agree that a story such as this is nothing more than a PAID for anti-Trump piece. Some day we might actually get back to a place where stories about candidates knowledge, understanding, stance and planned action regarding real issues are featured instead of cheap crap like this.

    Both faith leaders and politicians, alike, who support HB 43 say that it could be a preventative measure that helps adequately protect the faithful later on down the road…. No it is another absurd waste of taxpayer time and money on a purely symbolic statement that, as noted in the story, is unnecessary and similar the Planned Parenthood videos seeks to fraudulently infer something to the public that is not true. We don’t need ideological and religious based zealots and grandstanders in government. We need intelligent, educated people who know how to get things done. These are the same type of anti-freedom, anti-liberty, anti-self determination quacks who would outlaw contraception if possible.

    While the attempts were apparently blocked by a “threat monitoring” product that Clinton’s employees connected to her network in October 2013, there was a period of more than three months from June to October 2013 when that protection had not been installed, according to a letter from Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee. That means her server was possibly vulnerable to cyberattacks during that time.

    Ok for the low information voters here that will listen to rush who will report that her email server was definately hacked and top secret information was obtained by China and Russia….. the key to why this is another made up controversy is in the malware reference. If her email server were hacked there would be remnants of such attacks that could be detected. So rather than publish and bring attention to the Factual story that there was no evidence of any hacks other than those that were successfully blocked, you get the typical inference piece that sways that keeps the low information voter purposely uninformed. So much for people actually caring about issues facing the country and the its citizens. What is clear from the story is that the major banks and most federal and state governments and agencies should use the same protections, and probably do, on their email servers.

    “predominately secular Christmas production” Ok here’s perhaps the stupidest phrase that will be written this week. What is exactly is a predominately secular Christmas production? Is there proportionate time in the production given to Hanukkak? I’m assuming there is not a huge amount of time given to Santa Clause and Red Nosed Reindeers in a high school production.

    “Most of the time their education ends with that first baby,” Carson said. “Those babies are four times as likely to grow up in poverty, end up in the penal system or the welfare system. I’m not making this stuff up.” And of course that’s only a fact that is related to poor urban or rural women who have children out of wedlock. So what he said here is actually more consistent and supportive of the Freakeconomics research that showed a CAUSATION, not just a correlation between abortion and the reduction in crime rates since 1980. Less unwanted children to poor urban and rural women who can’t afford them and thus take adequate care of them results in fewer screwed up individuals who end up committing crimes and ending up behind bars. So yes his statement is consistent with a wide body of evidence. Of course if you study children of affluent single or divorced mothers who have a support system allows for a high level of concern and caring for the child…. the outcomes are very different and not significantly different from other children.

    Just want to be clear here. The objections to this kid being discriminated against for a harmless clock, have now somehow become justifications for inferring something about the kid’s motives based on information that appears on a facebook page that may or may not be from his father. And tell me again why Megyn Kelly is not just another conservative hack who creates conspiracies and propaganda against individuals or groups who’s ideology or beliefs are counter to the conservative machine? The notion that a clock that was mistaken for a bomb, which it clearly wasn’t generating this kind of “interest” and followup BS stories is beyond laughable and places the the producers of such stories and the individuals who read something into them members of the same clown car.

    “I think FFRF just pooped themselves to death.” I wouldn’t be too concerned about the 100,000 figure or its impact as there are over 49 million students attending public schools. So you looking at .2%. It would be interesting to see how many of the 5 million students who attend catholic schools and 1.2 million that attend christian schools bring their bibles everyday. And of course what percentage of the kids from families that can’t afford christian private schools have to attend public schools and bring have their bibles in their knapsack everyday anyway.

    Please point out one thing Cruz has done that was not designed to gain attention and self promote. Seriously, has he done anything constructive in the Senate that at the core was to improve the quality of life for all Americans. What I see is a guy who makes purposeful, nonsensical, inflammatory comments similar to Ann Coulter to feed the angry mob and gain some cheap media attention. The difference being you know it means she at least has a book coming out. Why exactly is Cruz doing? Given how many times he states, “I’m a constitutionalist”, I’d say he is positioning himself for a Supreme Court nomination. Which is good cause he has zero chance of ever getting elected to higher office and would destroy the ticket as a VP choice.
