Special IRS Prosecutor Favored as Obama Support Drops
By Jonathan D. Salant - May 30, 2013 3:00 AM PT
Three-quarters of U.S. voters want a special prosecutor to investigate the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of Tea Party groups, according to a poll that showed a drop in President Barack Obama’s approval and trust ratings.
In the survey released today by Hamden, Connecticut-based Quinnipiac University, registered voters favored a special prosecutor by 76 percent to 17 percent. Those backing such a move included 63 percent of Democrats.
The IRS earlier this month disclosed that it singled out groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names for extra scrutiny before deciding whether to grant tax-exempt status under the tax code’s Section 501(c)(4).
“There is overwhelming bipartisan support for an independent investigation into the IRS,” Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac polling institute, said in a news release.
The IRS earlier this month disclosed that it singled out groups with “tea party” or “patriot” in their names for extra scrutiny before deciding whether to grant tax-exempt status under the tax code’s Section 501(c)(4). That status would allow those organizations to hide their donors even when engaging in political activity. Some Democratic-leaning groups also received requests for additional information.
as long as its specified that the investigation be strictly limited to the IRS scandal, I would support it (and I am a supporter of President Obama). What I don't another Ken Starr witch hunt

WASHINGTON (CBSDC)— A former bodyguard for Osama bin Laden is claiming the terror leader blew himself up during the U.S. special forces raid on his Abbotabad compound in Pakistan.

Nabil Naim Abdel Fattah told Gulf News that Navy SEALs did not kill the al Qaeda leader who planned the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

“U.S. special forces did not kill Osama Bin Laden. He detonated himself to avoid being captured after American forces raided his hiding place in Pakistan in 2011,” Abedel Fattah explained to Gulf News.

Abdel Fattah – the former of Egyptian Islamic Jihad — said that bin Laden “wore an explosive belt for the last 10 years of his life.”

“He insisted on never handing himself over to the Americans. The American intelligence had planned to capture him alive, but they miscalculated,” Abdel Fattah said.“He blew himself up to avoid being captured because he wanted to protect his secrets until death.”

Fattah added:“The American president lied when he claimed that Bin Laden was buried in the sea. Bin Laden’s body parts were cut into multiple pieces, which is similar to suicide attacks following the bombing, so as not to leave any clue to the U.S. forces to identify him.””

Fattah told Gulf News he was not at the compound during the raid, but he “heard what happened there from Bin Laden’s cousin.”

Bin Laden was killed on May 2, 2011, during the Navy SEAL Team 6 raid on his compound.

speaking of FOX BS....
The Department of Justice claims it has proof it alerted the parent company of Fox News of a subpoena used to obtain the phone log records of Washington correspondent James Rosen as part of an investigation into a 2010 leak of classified information, according to CNN.
"The Justice Department is telling us here at CNN....that it showed a Fox News notification according to the Justice Department of this James Rosen investigation nearly three years ago," CNN's Jim Acosta reported on air Wednesday, per a rush transcript. "To back that up, earlier this afternoon Justice and law enforcement producer Carol Cratty was shown by a law enforcement official documents indicating as much of this notification to the parent company of Fox News, News Corporation."
The Justice Department previously said it had notified News Corp. of the seizure on Aug. 27, 2010, but company officials over the weekend countered by claiming they had no such record. News Corp.'s chief legal counsel at the time also issued a strong denial of ever receiving a subpoena from the government.

GOP needs more Doles and fewer Bachmanns
Maybe Bob Dole has more clout in the Republican Party than we think. He suggested on Sunday that the party put up a “closed for repairs” sign for the rest of the year. Then along comes Michele Bachmann declaring on Wednesday that she won’t seek reelection.
On the surface, Republicans will be happy that they won’t have to answer for her exquisitely inflammatory statements anymore. Democrats will be disappointed to lose a face that launched thousands of contributions their way. You might say her departure is a small repair for the GOP’s image.
In fact, Bachmannism is far from finished. 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, Web sites or Fox News are talking about.
You don’t have to bat 1.000 or even .350 in this game. Get just a handful of your accusations and strange takes on reality into the political bloodstream and you’ve won.

Bachmannism substitutes accusations for ideas and paranoia for an agenda. Alas, there’s little reason to think it will leave the stage with her.

Why did the admin send some of these individuals out of the country as the subpenas were happening?

Pickering needs to testify behind close doors to obtain an honest statement from him why he only focused on lower level State Department officials without there being claims of confidentially clouding the truth. Later there will be a public hearing.

Patrick Kennedy, who Pickering thought was too high up to interview, is now identified as a participant.

The Pickering report was a hack job on low level career employees.

Please tell us how much of the "economic" growth is due solely to increasing government, which is an expense on the economy.
Please tell us what was the deficit when the Democrats took full control of all the purse strings of govenment in January, 2007, and what the Democrats have done to the deficit since.

And, please tell us how the fuck any government that has to continually borrow 1.3 trillion dollars every goddam year just to support its day-to-day existence has any possible chance of surviving.

Well, Senator John McCain sneaked about a half mile inside Syria this week and managed to get himself photographed with a rebel group which kidnapped 11 Lebanese Shiites who were on a religious pilgrimage last year.
Nice going John.
John should have taken a tour of Tartus, a city on Syrias S E coast which is home to a Russian Naval base with a few battleships, tugs and a tanker.
The battleships are equipped with both anti ship and anti aircraft missiles manned by Russian troops. Syrian anti aircraft missiles located elsewhere around the country are Russian produced and also manned by Russian troops.
Aside from Russia, Iran, Hezbollah and even some Iraqi's are assisting the Assad regime.
John should be a fkn expert on anti aircraft missiles!

He will testify publicly later. Most interviews which may contain sensitive information -this time career personnel working at the State Dept -are first conducted behind close doors.

Pickering is being a whine baby as he knows what he did lacks any credibility. He was hoping to weasel out of it by making vague references to unnamed sources during a public hearing. Behind close doors he has to put the cards on the table.

George W Bush told the yellow cake story,a story that Plame never said was true.
Vallerie Plame was the head/top dog/HNIC of the CIA's Joint Task Force on WMDs in Iraq. What other source of intelligence are you referencing.
Search "Bill Clinton CIA human rights purge" and tell us what you learn.... of course, Democrats want to pretend that never happened and Bill Clinton didn't completely destroy our foreign intelligence capabilities. Bush had to rebuild those capabilities.
I anxiously await your conclusions after you educate yourself on Bill Clinton's human rights purge of the CIA.
It was Vallerie Plame's "yellow cake story", you idiot. In fact, her husband was sent to Africa specifically to investigate that story.

Tell us what intelligence the president had that Vallerie Plame didn't have, dufus.

California motorists buy a significantly higher percentage of foreign cars than the rest of the country, probably because they drive a lot of miles and need efficient and dependable cars.
