Letters To Ed :-)

"We've been duped by the Republicans. Kentucky Sen. and minority leader Mitch McConnell in a news conference one day after the election, stated that the single and sole goal of the GOP over the next two years is: to make Barack Obama a single term president. What an arrogant and obnoxious goal and statement. There agenda before the election was to get votes by promising that there first goals were jobs, the economy and health care reform. It seems their goal is to grab power, not to do things for the people that are in need of jobs and or unemployment pay, health care for those that don't have it, and the people losing their homes. This is the same party that wanted the auto plants and their suppliers to go out of business. We are just coming back from what they did to this country, and now we have them back to do the same things to our country again. What a mess the next two years is going to bring to this country. Talk about partisanship." Carl D. Leow Rogers Cit

Freeman states below; who wants to get rid of regulation?

Well I would say you were playing dumb, but we all know you’re not playing.

Fox News

Freeman speaks funny, out of one side of his mouth he says that government lies, then out of the other he quotes from the House Armed Services Committee website as truth.

Just a few months ago, Senator John McCain had a photo taken of him shaking hands with leaders of the terrorist organizations inside Syria.

This just like all the Republicans they support terrorism behind our back while lying to our face that we are fighting them.

I think that they enjoy killing women and children, what a bunch of sickos.

"...the report DEBUNKS ENTIRELY a right wing myth that the White House ordered the military not to intervene...."

So you have a government that can't find it's backside with both hands and lies about it and you're biggest "victory" is finding evidence that proves their incompetence.

Wow, have we set the bar low.

In short, normanlake, the administration has been lying to cover up their absolute failure.

"Al-Qaeda is on the run", "..if you like your plan..", "...caused by a vile video...", "..not a smidgeon of corruption at the IRS".

OK normy and jax. You get the government you deserve.

VI. The Department of Defense is working to correct many weaknesses revealed by the Benghazi attack, but the global security situation is still deteriorating and military resources continue to decline.

An open house and a community meeting are being held in Oscoda Wednesday, to talk about the “do not eat” fish advisory issued in May, 2012 for Clark’s Marsh, near the former Wurtsmith Air Force Base. The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) is hosting the meetings and will also discuss a recommendation that people not eat fish that live year-round in the lower Au Sable River, such as perch, bass and panfish.

The health department has determined that levels of perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) in fish sampled from ponds in Clark’s Marsh are unsafe for human consumption.

If it wasn’t for all these government regulations we could enjoy eatting our poison fish in complete ignorance.

V. The U.S. military’s response to the Benghazi attack was severely degraded because of the location and readiness posture of U.S. forces, and because of lack of clarity about how the terrorist action was unfolding. However, given the uncertainty about the prospective length and scope of the attack, military commanders did not take all possible steps to prepare for a more extended operation.

V. There was no “stand down” order issued to U.S. military personnel in Tripoli who sought to join the fight in Benghazi. However, because official reviews after the attack were not sufficiently comprehensive, there was confusion about the roles and responsibilities of these individuals.

II. U.S. personnel in Benghazi were woefully vulnerable in September 2012 because a.) the administration did not direct a change in military force posture, b.) there was no intelligence of a specific “imminent” threat in Libya, and c.) the Department of State, which has primary responsibility for diplomatic security, favored a reduction of Department of Defense security personnel in Libya before the attack.

III. Defense Department officials believed nearly from the outset of violence in Benghazi that it was a terrorist attack rather than a protest gone awry, and the President subsequently permitted the military to respond with minimal direction.

Findings:

I. In assessing military posture in anticipation of the September 11 anniversary, White House officials failed to comprehend or ignored the dramatically deteriorating security situation in Libya and the growing threat to U.S. interests in the region. Official public statements seem to have exaggerated the extent and rigor of the security assessment conducted at the time.

There was no stand down order because the situation was so totally botched by the administration. No wonder they lied.

Promise made surefoot!

Jax, maybe we should just get rid of congress, would that suit you?

I mean, come on, some of us want to know what's going on in a government that spends $3 Trillion in a year.

You're fast becoming a joke.

Preach on surefoot!!!

FREEDOM OF THE PRESS means the PRESS holds the government's feet to the fire, not kiss it's backside and write fluff pieces on failed policies.

Freeman; you promise never to vote for a Bush and I will promise never to vote for a Clinton.

They are one in the same any how.

The 2014 World Press Freedom Index spotlights major decline in media freedom in the United States. The US has been listed along with countries such as Central African Republic and Guatemala in the Index, which was published on Wednesday by Reporters Without Borders

The United States has gone 13 positions down to 46th in this year's index, which covers 180 countries.

Rand Paul and Reince Priebus..."Lewinski". Now there is a 'scandal' we can wrap our distractions around.

News Flash! A GOP report on Benghazi! "The House Armed Services Committee that there is no way for the U.S. military to have responded in time to the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya to save the four Americans killed that night. In doing so, the report DEBUNKS ENTIRELY a right wing myth that the White House ordered the military not to intervene.

I understand the glee Republicans got seeing Susan McDougall in shackles. But take something like Bush/Cheney wanting to turn national energy policy over to Enron and Kenny-boy Lay, and all you got was crickets from Republicans. And Republicans want to ramp up another Benghazi investigations. As I said, it's what they do. Waste taxpayer time, waste taxpayer money.

"...Ultimately the Clintons were never charged, but 15 other persons were convicted of more than 40 crimes, including Bill Clinton's successor as Governor, who was removed from office..."

Sounds like an investigation was warranted to me.

And, by the way, it wasn't Issa who wrote letters urging the investigation of "True the Vote". That was Rep. Elijah Cummings (D), the ranking member, doing his J-O-B.
