The Justice Department did more than seize a Fox News reporter's emails while suggesting he was a criminal "co-conspirator" in a leak case -- it did so under one of the most serious wartime laws in America, the Espionage Act.
It's the same law used by the Nixon administration to go after The New York Times and Daniel Ellsberg over the leak of the Pentagon Papers. It's the law used to charge the Rosenbergs, American communists, for allegedly passing secret information to the Soviet Union -- they were executed for the offense in 1953.

One Washington attorney, who represents two defendants recently charged under that World War I-era law, told FoxNews.com that the decision by the Justice Department to invoke it in the current case is "beyond chilling" -- and could set a dangerous precedent for going after reporters.

Never said that, just making sure I had my facts straight. I would never support that type of violence.

We don't need federal funds in Moore. People are taking care of people and there is more than enough.
What about the people that are uninsured or under insured? who is going to pick up that bill?

My husband said that federal funds are already flowing into Moore/SW OKC. Businesses have already been notified of 3% loans to them backed by the Federal Government. FEMA doesn't provide food and shelter, they rebuild infrastructure.

And for the aide that our Senators in OK famously rejected for Hurricane Sandy...Everyone loves to talk about the stuff that was attached to the bill. Well things get attached to the bill and House and Senate members of both parties do that.

The main reason that they give is that Congress is so broken that other states that need federal funds too put their riders on there.

What was so funny that Inhofe didn't know that the Hurricane damaged a wide area and our aide extends to islands that are US territories and thus are eligible for funds too. His statements just underline just how ignorant we are in electing these know nothings to represent us.

With representatives like that, who needs enemies?

Your full of baloney. That's a load of BS from someone sitting high and dry. How much did you contribute...$10?

Most of the aide is low interest loans to people...the schools which were from the '60's sure haven't been rebuilt in what 50 years...

The Gov asked for the aide but I guess you know better...

Write a check to rebuild that hospital okay...we just built it a few years ago....oh yeah...there are a whole lot of renters in that area so you need to cut them a check too....

Oklahoma senators change tune on disaster relief
Both lawmakers voted against aid for Superstorm Sandy victims before accepting funds to help their own tornado-ravaged state.

Hey, Sen. James Inhofe, how does that "slush" taste?

Just days after an EF5 tornado tore through Moore, Okla., killed 24 people, left thousands homeless and caused roughly $2 billion in damage, Oklahoma's Republican senators found themselves in the awkward position of receiving federal disaster aid they had argued so vehemently against just months before.

In January, Inhofe and Sen. Tom Coburn both voted against a $60 billion supplemental appropriation bill that was aimed largely at providing relief to victims of Superstorm Sandy, which slammed into coastal New York and New Jersey last year.

The disaster fund, run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, now has a balance of $11.6 billion, which FEMA spokesman Dan Watson told Reuters is enough to handle immediate response and recovery efforts in Oklahoma and residual costs from Sandy.

That's the same money Inhofe called a "slush fund" when the aid had become entangled in the fiscal cliff budget fight back in January and dwindled to nearly nothing after that prolonged bout of political infighting.

"They had things in the Virgin Islands. They were fixing roads there, they were putting roofs on houses in Washington, D.C. Everybody was getting in and exploiting the tragedy that took place. That won't happen in Oklahoma," Inhofe said on MSNBC after the recent tornado struck.

Unfortunately for Inhofe, as the New York Daily News points out, that just wasn't true. The Sandy relief bill initially contained money for projects outside of areas damaged by Sandy just to get it through Congress, but Republicans in the House of Representatives stripped out that small portion of the bill. The legislation also didn't contain money to put roofs on homes in Washington, D.C., but it did have funds to repair museum roofs damaged by the storm.

Coburn opposed the Sandy relief bill because it wasn't offset by budget cuts elsewhere. He hasn't made similar demands after the Moore tornado, saying only, "As the ranking member of the Senate committee that oversees FEMA, I can assure Oklahomans that any and all available aid will be delivered without delay."

The senators differ from one of their fellow Oklahoma Republicans -- Rep. Tom Cole, whose district bore the brunt of the tornado damage and just experienced its second such storm in 14 years. He voted for the Sandy relief bill after helping trim out many of the add-ons of the original legislation.

Sad thing is, this country is so far gone that you and SoWhat don't already know the answers to these questions and expect the government to do it.

is there’s some kind of “sexual arousal” or “joy” in this forum over the Associated Press spying and IRS scrutiny of tea party groups.

After five years of constantly being at “DEFCON 1, red alert, the president is a Marxist who’s destroying the country,” repug began.“You finally have a few things that really look worth investigating. Is it joy? Is it sexual arousal? What is the feeling over there?”

The only real argument I have with Obama is that he kept way too many Bush people in his administration. He should have known they would deliberately fu**ck up to try and destroy him. The Right thought they could take him out in his first term and didn't. Then when they realized that Romney couldn't even beat himself off, they used what EVERY citizen hates, the IRS, to try and take him down.

Doesn't appear that's going to work either.

We all realize that two wrongs do not make it right. But the hypocritical asshats from the Taliban Party is unbelievable. They never had one hearing on the IRS abuse when the IRS was looking into Planned Parenthood, the NAACP, or some left leaning churches.
And now, because the IRS went after some tea baggers, they are up in arms? WHY now, and not back when GW Bush was doing it? And no, Bush probably didn't know about it either, but VP Cheney sure did.
And the Taliban party cannot understand how their flip flopper Mitt lost the election. Gee, quit being such hypocritical asshats and you might realize what most of the nation really thinks about these hearings. They are, to put it bluntly, a fu**cking joke.
