The former president, Alfonso Portillo, 61, led Guatemala from 2000 to 2004. Two years ago, he was acquitted of embezzlement charges in Guatemala, but by then he had been indicted in Manhattan, where federal prosecutors accused him of conspiring to launder millions of dollars in his country’s money through bank accounts in the United States and elsewhere.

After losing an extradition fight, Mr. Portillo was flown on Friday to Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. On Tuesday, he was taken before Judge Robert P. Patterson Jr. of Federal District Court in Manhattan, who advised him of his rights and asked if he wanted to plead not guilty.

Voter fraud plot thickens:
NBC NEWS
Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office spokesman, Ed Griffin, told NBC there is an ongoing investigation targeting multiple individuals involving alleged absentee ballot fraud. He confirmed that at least three search warrants were served Friday.
The investigation was launched in December 2012 by the Miami-Dade Elections Fraud Task Force after several voter fraud allegations and the recommendation of a grand jury, Griffin said.

Any comments from anyone on the left?
So, the Voting Rights Act is still holding up well and doing what it was intended to do as well as voting registration thus proves republicans were wrong that stricter voter fraud laws needed to be passed.

<quoted text>So,you and Galt try to argue that since Ethanol isn't the best substitute for conventional oil that all scientific advancement in developing alternative biomass fuels and renewable energy solar, wind, etc. are equally 'losers' and we have to just accept the consequences of depleting a finite natural resource(oil),and the rising costs of exploiting it and destabilizing the planet's climate. If people like you and Galt made up the majority of our 'greatest generation' in WW II then Fascism would have won, and America would be a isolated, bunker-state rather than the leader of the free world.
Ethanol is proven to require more energy to produce than it provides.

Solar is extremely geographically limited and available only on sunny days.

Wind also has geographical limitations and many days are calm.

Why the Benghazi Hearings Are Likely to Be a Bust

But as has been the case since he first assumed office, President Obama continues to earn better marks on foreign policy than he gets for handling the economy. The latest numbers show that 47 percent give the president good marks on national security, while only 33 percent rate his performance as poor.

With the public largely tuning out foreign policy topics, it will take some pretty spectacular revelations to change those perceptions. Until that happens, it's likely that economic issues and the president's health care law will be the driving issues of the 2014 elections.

Clinton and Reagan also fired the same number of U.S. attorneys as Bush.
Blatant lie. While all presidents usually clean house of all U.S. Attorneys upon taking office in their first administration, very few fire any U.S. attorneys at the start of their second administration.

the issue isn't about firing U.S Attorneys at the start of their 1st administration, never has been. let's actually stick to the issue. It has to do with firing U.S. Attorneys that the President has put in place and the reason for their firing.

so how many U.S. Attorneys did Clinton fire at the start of his 2nd term?

add to that that the Inspector General's investigation revealed that the U.S. attorney's fired by Bush were fired because they refused to investigate democratic candidates just before an election, with no evidence of wrong doing

Its been proven that the intel provided to Congressional Democrats had been "Vetted" by Cheney and Scooter (Libby-who actually set up an office in the Pentagon) and had qualifiers removed. Other intel, such as a DOE report on those aluminum tubes stating they weren't strong enough to be utilize in uranium enriching centerfuges, or reports from military NBC chemical experts stating that if Saddam did in fact have any chemical weapons left over from Gulf War I they would be inert/useless due to age.

The French, German, Russian and even MI6 knew Saddam didn't have any WMD's and repeatedly told us....only those reports weren't included.

<quoted text>I'm missing something in all the talk of vets with PTSD.
If the syndrome was diagnosed by the VA it would not appear on a routine gun shop background check. If it was diagnosed by a family doctor or psychiatrist, it would not appear on a routine background check.
It would appear on a routine background check if it was somehow relative to an arrest-criminal action-court action-certain disability claims etc.
For every veteran with a formal diagnosis of PTSD from the VA, there are probably several others that show some symptoms.

Regardless, they should not be punished for their service unless it results in some criminal activity. That includes profiling veterans.

Reuters has obtained part of a yet to be released report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) that confirms that the IRS was targeting groups on the left and right who focused their activities on advocating for expanding or limiting of the size of the government. The report also states that the screening process was not influenced by the Obama administration, and that none of the groups screened were denied tax exempt status.
Without the claims of a partisan witch hunt against conservative groups, this latest Republican fueled Obama scandal is set to lose all of its sizzle.
The real reason why Republicans are desperately trying to drum up a scandal here is because they don’t want the IRS forcing their dark money groups to pay taxes. The IRS is threatening their Citizens United fueled political slush fund, and Republicans want it to stop. Republicans are trying to bully the IRS into backing off.
It turns out that Obama isn’t Richard Nixon after all. He wasn’t using the IRS to attack his enemies. In their own bungling way, the IRS was trying to deal with the problems caused by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. First, Benghazi crashes and burns, and now the IRS scandal could be fading fast.
Republicans will pull from their usual “Obama scandal” playbook and hold lots of hearings, but thing looks to be on the fast track to nowhere. Congressional Republicans will try their best, but the IRS “scandal” could backfire and end up making the case for why we need to get rid of Citizens United ASAP.

Thankfully, you belong in the minority who believe this administration can bully Americans into submission.
