Issa delivered an ultimatum to the State Department recently. They have until the 24th of this month to produce documents and witnesses or subpoenas are going to start flying.

30 Days for Billings Teacher Who Raped 14-year-old Student

Did victim’s race play a role in lenient sentence?

Yesterday we learned that the county superintendent of schools in Billings is a barely literate, racist, plagiarizing, Tea Party ignoramus, revealed to have plagiarized another author. He will likely be moving on.

Today, we have another Billings official who will soon be recalled.

Guess I didn't see enough of it being covered by the liberal media compared to the Zimmerman outcry - or missed it.
But good for you and your fellow liberals. Got any news coverage of this outcry?
The only thing you need to know about the Zimmerman case is that our state's (R) governor and (TPR) attorney general very quickly benched the (R) Seminole-Brevard states attorney in favor of the (R) Duval states attorney.

Someone fkd up (read lied) early on.

Additionally, the Sanford police chief was fired, the PIO fired and the lead investigator reassigned to road patrol.

SYRIA
KERRY ASKS RUSSIA TO PLEASE STEP UP AND HELP DISARM
Via Politico.

+++++++=

---------
From the above report, by doing to dismantle Syria chemical weapons is making clumsy way, such that Syria needs to turn in data for examination, to possibly open up for inspection like Iraq again, which will make others say much more if US saying unsatisfactory to be hassling Syria more, like another Iraq cycle. That can lead to further scrutinizing to do more of some other Iraq unrest in the final end again. As this is like former Iraq case weapons inspection, it is doing the similar ugly matter of Bush-the Iraq blueprint case of another story of Syria just like Iraq story, as even US did not start that--but just calling chemical WEAPONS ISSUE only. In doing so,is repeating the Iraq inspection and dismantling programs process before US bombed Iraq at that time--what a waste of time is doing the same old failure thing of dismantling chemical weapons?

IN SHORT, BY CONCLUSION, THERE SHOULD NEVER BE AGAIN ANY of this irritated failure thing of dismantling chemical weapons anywhere because Iraq awful drama syndrome proves all.
SHOULD HAVE DONE THESE:
(1) Should not take literally what Obama says from passing the buck to keep on this chemical weapons drama. THERE SHOULD NEVER BE AGAIN ANY of this irritated failure thing to dismantle chemical weapons IN SYRIA because Iraq drama proves all.
(2) REJECT redline as it is arbitrary--that is, when will be the thresh-hold degree to such case that is the redline defined, that there is such ground of comprehensive International law to enforce such. Furthermore, 8/21 incident is not the case nor basis, as it is entirely out of line to conclude such pattern in noting, in addition to Assad's saying he did not do it while rebels have sarin gas.
(3) The matter of knowing Syria has sarin gas is besides the point if it has not used it, that there is not the need to dismantle Syria chemical weapons, to outcome again the Iraq destructive case, of dismantling Syria like Iraq WMD again, which is being turned down by the whole world.
(4) There is no such redline that chemical weapons usage in Syria is an issue, except the turmoil situation is the only bearing of the importance to focus on. This is not to make diversion and to pull away from the only concern focus in the Syria unrest. Therefore, chemical weapons issue is not applicable, for there is no such redline in the first place.
(5) THERE IS NO REDLINE WHATSOEVER AT ALL, such as Syria, that Obama needs to tone down the tension as these are basic rules that US needs to conform to, by making a change, as US has been seen to engage in much aggression, particularly in the ME region.
(6) As not to do and repeat the similar failure case of Iraq, this proves that calling chemical weapons and redline is purely arbitrary and is not appropriate to deal with chemical weapons as issue, FOR all that is PURELY hysteria with no basis.
(7) UN has to reject that as an issue, based on all the reports of unproven or not, which will make no difference whatsoever from whatever reports.
(8) It is only the option for Syria to choose to do with its chemical weapons whatever it wants, to turn in or not, as long as it does not use it--for no trend has indicated the usage at all.
(9) Chemical weapons ARE NOT as THE issue.
That is THIS STAND, FOR THIS DOES ALL RELATED TO THE SOLUTION -- US has no basis of ill hysteria and cannot force Syria to need what to do with its chemical weapons, for there cannot be another Iraq matter of chemical weapons pursuit again.

The more I look into this "story" the more appalled I am. As it turns out, there are 24 Republicans and 17 Democrats on the oversite committee and only five Republicans and two Democrats stuck around to hear the parents speak...not "testify" as some seem to believe.
The photo of the empty democratic seats that has been circling the internet was taken by "an Issa staffer" and it was Issa who made a point of tweeting that Democrats left the room while completely ignoring the truth that Republicans weren't there either. This man is a disgrace and should be fired.

The only Democrats who stayed were Ranking Member Elijah Cummings and Rep. Jackie Speier. The other 15 split even before the two parents began to speak.

Billings gaining a bad rap after Judge Baugh comments

This isn't the first time in recent history a Judge in Montana made national headlines. In February 2012 Federal Judge Richard Cebull forwarded racist e-mail about President Barak Obama, creating a storm of reaction from across the country.

Like I said, got any news footage proving this outcry? Or just one liberal or liberal media website?

Coverage of the Zimmerman trial was all over the place.

I'm quite sure almost everyone would be outraged by this verdict. But it hasn't received anywhere near the coverage that Zimmerman received. The liberal media had an agenda with Zimmerman.

But, please, point me to a link showing the liberal media outcry or even just adequate coverage of the story by any liberal media source.

I'd be interested.
