We still know nothing. The president knows nothing. And Hillary knows nothing.

You gotta love Boehner.
"Now, my question isn't about who's going to resign. My question is who's going to jail over this scandal?"
The commissioner who was fired just gets to resign a month earlier.
That fixes everything.
What scandal nitwit? All of the right wing groups got their tax exempt status. Since when is exercising due diligence and making sure that a group that's seeking tax exemption is what it purports to be?

Quite comfortable knowing that morans like you will continue to deliver GOP defeat.
Americans think the Tea Party are loons.
POLL: TEA PARTY LESS POPULAR THAN MUSLIMS, ATHEISTS, 21 OTHER GROUPS | The debt ceiling deal has left the Tea Party more disliked than ever, as a recent New York Times poll shows. In April, 2010, 21 percent of Americans approved of the Tea Party while 18 percent disapproved of it. Now, 20 percent approve while a stunning 40 percent disapprove of it. Ironically, the conservative movement is now more unpopular than two often-marginalized groups it sometimes rails against — Muslims and atheists — and is the least popular of the 23 groups the poll asked about:
The Tea Party ranks lower than any of the 23 other groups we asked about — lower than both Republicans and Democrats. It is even less popular than much maligned groups like “atheists” and “Muslims.” Interestingly, one group that approaches it in unpopularity is the Christian Right.
By the way, can you please enlighten me as to all the social welfare going on by these Tea Turd groups? Why are they seeking tax emept status when they are so obviously political organizations.

So, what criminal activities will Obama, Holder, Kathleen Sebelius and the Democrat Party undertake this week?

LeftWhiners are supporting our government exposing confidential donor lists so Obama's political hacks and mindless robots who are also government employees high and low can criminally harass people on Obama's enemy list.

Talk about Nixonian!

Obama makes what Nixon did look like mild.

today's big story.

WH Benghazi emails have different quotes than earlier reported

Republicans have charged that the State Department under Hillary Clinton was trying to protect itself from criticism. The White House released the real emails late Wednesday. Here's what we found when we compared them to the quotes that had been provided by Republicans.

One email was written by deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes.

On Friday, Republicans leaked what they said was a quote from Rhodes: "We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don't want to undermine the FBI investigation."

But it turns out that in the actual email, Rhodes did not mention the State Department.

It read: "We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation."

Republicans also provided what they said was a quote from an email written by State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland.

The Republican version quotes Nuland discussing, "The penultimate point is a paragraph talking about all the previous warnings provided by the Agency (CIA) about al-Qaeda's presence and activities of al-Qaeda."

The actual email from Nuland says: "The penultimate point could be abused by members to beat the State Department for not paying attention to Agency warnings."

WATCH: CBS' Major Garrett calls out GOP over doctored Benghazi emails

The former Fox News correspondent takes the rare step of chastising partisan sources on air

When it emerged that ABC News had been handed misleading summaries of internal Obama administration emails hashing out post–Benghazi attack talking points, we asked who burned the network's White House correspondent, Jonathan Karl. Somewhat unexpectedly, Karl's CBS News counterpart, Major Garrett, provided us an answer: Congressional Republicans.

Karl had strongly suggested that he was quoting actual emails from White House official Ben Rhodes and State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland that he had personally reviewed, instead of summaries passed on by partisan sources. According to Garrett, that's because "Republicans leaked what they said was a quote from Rhodes" and "also provided what they said was a quote from an email written... by Nuland."

Whoa, says Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo. Garrett just "did something I don't feel like I've seen in a really long time or maybe ever on a network news cast." Reporters are fed leaks from "partisan, tendentious sources" all the time, and for a host of reasons — "some good or somewhat understandable, mostly bad" — nothing is ever done about it. Well, Garrett just did something.

It means they altered the emails they got. Republicans falsified the emails and information to make it sound like there was a White House cover up. Whatever it takes to get the job done Battie.!

Morning Homer, you are so right. Anytime you turn on Fox it is a steady diet of bend twist and perpetuate their obvious agenda while distorting the many accusations. Mean while the sheep Baa and repeat the same.
