It's about to come to a head one way or the other.

Boehner is demanding emails and all unclassified correspondance from the WH regarding Benghazi and its aftermath.

If you remember the events leading up to Watergate, it's very similar to the Nixon's tapes. His refusal to turn them over is what ultimately led to his resignation.

So far, the WH has refused to turn over this information. If there's nothing to hide, they will and we'll see where the story goes from there. If there is something to hide and the information isn't forthcoming, this story will go in a completely new direction.

More than two years after regulators confirmed widespread reports of abusive mortgage practices, the government is making only halting progress in fixing the problem according to homeowners, their attorneys, housing counselors and public officials. Itís not only a dilemma for the people caught in the foreclosure noose; itís also holding back a broader housing recovery and slowing the nationís economic recovery.

Put up or shut up. One of the things you do well is post sources for your information, you cut and paste and lost the info that agrees with you but you do supply sources. Sort of. Now list a source where the IRS targeted liberals who did not agree with Bush on his policies. Try huff puff, media matters, if your work at it you will be able to twist some lies to support your BS.

i can post it....again.

The liberal All Saints Church (Episcopal) of Pasadena, California, which was threatened with the loss of its tax-exempt status over an anti-war sermon delivered just days before the 2004 presidential election said Thursday it will contest an IRS order to turn over documents on the matter.

The dispute at the 3,500-member (including actor Bradley Whitford) church centers on a sermon titled "If Jesus Debated Senator Kerry and President Bush," delivered by a guest pastor. Though he did not endorse a candidate, the guest speaker said Jesus would condemn the Iraq war and Bush's doctrine of pre-emptive war.

The AP notes that under federal tax law, church officials can legally discuss politics, but to retain tax-exempt status, they cannot endorse candidates or parties.

The anti-war statements don't sound to me that a candidate or party was endorsed. It could stand to reason that if taken to heart, a condemnation of President Bush's Iraqi politics might have persuaded members to vote for John Kerry. But that was never said. There were plenty of other "minor" party candidates running, including some with far more virulent anti-Iraq war views than Kery. And, of course, the members were free to not vote at all.

Now- keeping in mind the prohibition against tax-exempt churches endorsing candidates or parties- compare what was said at All Saints vs. this admonition from the pastor of a 10,000-member, highly conservative megachurch in Ohio just before the 2004 election. The description is from an article in today's issue of the Toronto-based Globe and Mail newspaper:

In her book, Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism,(author Michelle Goldberg) describes a Sunday-morning service in Ohio before the 2004 American presidential election, where amid thundering music and strobe lights, a 10,000-member congregation listened to "how Jesus wanted them to save marriage from the hell-spawned forces of homosexuality on Nov. 2 ..."

The pastor warned of Christianity under siege and that secular democrats had invaded Ohio "going door to door, knocking on doors so we can continue to murder babies and further strip the church of its First Amendment rights through hate-crimes legislation," all of which he called "the annihilation of a civilization."

I don't recall reading about that church being challenged by the IRS. Do you?

"Place the blame where it rightfully belongs if you dare to be honest, dizzy Lou. I've always been baffled by Republicans' steadfast demands to weaken the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in its cradle. Their chief tactic: repeatedly trying to block President Obama's choice of former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray - or anyone else - as its director unless Democrats agree to amend the Dodd-Frank provisions establishing it.

Yesterday, in a Senate Banking Committee exchange captured in this video (below), Sen. Elizabeth Warren took aim at that strange campaign, challenging various claims that the CFPB somehow has sinister powers beyond that of other financial regulators. It's five minutes of video worth watching. Warren, of course, is the former law professor who conceived the idea of a new consumer-protection agency and persuaded Obama to insist on its broad authority and independence.

Warren called Cordray "an open book," and questioned assertions made by the agency's foes, including the 43 Senate Republicans vowing yet again to block anyone from the post. Among their demands: that the single director be replaced by a commission, a form of governance typically more subject to political influence, and that the agency's funding be put under Congress' control - unlike that of other financial regulators.

"I think that the delay in getting him confirmed is bad for consumers, it's bad for small banks, it's bad for credit unions, it's bad for anyone trying to offer an honest product in an honest market," Warren said. "The American people deserve a Congress that worries less about helping big banks and more about helping regular people who have been cheated on mortgages, on credit cards, on student loans, on credit reports."

Obama, you may recall, bypassed the Senate after a similar filibuster in 2011. But with court challenges looming to his recess appointments, he's trying again now that the CFPB has a growing track record as a forceful but measured voice for consumer protection. Among its early achievements, www.ConsumerFinance.gov is now a place where individuals can go to register complaints against a credit-card issuer or a credit reporting agency and expect to get an actual response."Check this out: http://www.philly.com/philly/blogs/consumer/E...

Then this very calm and controlled "President Hillary" suddenly becomes a clip of an extremely agitated and defensive former Secretary of State screaming in the wake of four dead Americans, "What difference, at this point, does it make??!!"

Quite a contrast. She probably wouldn't have answered the phone in the middle of the night either.

Panetta said he did.
Panetta said, though he did meet with Obama at a 5 o'clock prescheduled gathering, the president left operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under siege, "up to us."

In fact, Panetta says that the night of 9/11, he did not communicate with a single person at the White House.

Obama did not call or communicate in anyway with the defense secretary that night. There were no calls about what was going on in Benghazi. He never called to check-in.

Like anyone else, she is frustrated at IGNORANCE! Why should anyone have the patience for absurd, that's the only argument your lot has from birther to Islamic sympathiser. Neither of which deserve the time of day. But I guess on one hand Fox news helps the Chinese stimulation of the economy from ppl throwing bricks at their TV while at the same time adding to the toxic waste.
Which is what all your lot recycle again straight back at us!

Have you noticed how Hillary's teeth have gradually gotten extremely yellow over the years? They used to be bright white and now it looks like she's wearing a corn cob sideways in her mouth.

Message from Al Gore:

400 ppm May 10, 2013 : 10:25 AM

Yesterday, for the first time in human history, concentrations of carbon dioxide, the primary global warming pollutant, hit 400 parts per million in our planet's atmosphere. This number is a reminder that for the last 150 years -- and especially over the last several decades -- we have been recklessly polluting the protective sheath of atmosphere that surrounds the Earth and protects the conditions that have fostered the flourishing of our civilization. We are altering the composition of our atmosphere at an unprecedented rate. Indeed, every single day we pour an additional 90 million tons of global warming pollution into the sky as if it were an open sewer. As the distinguished climate scientist Jim Hansen has calculated, the accumulated manmade global warming pollution in the atmosphere now traps enough extra heat energy each day to equal the energy that would be released by 400,000 Hiroshima-scale atomic bombs exploding every single day. It's a big planet -- but that is a LOT of energy. And it is having a destructive effect.

Now, more than ever before, we are reaping the consequences of our recklessness. From Superstorm Sandy which crippled New York City and large areas of New Jersey, to a drought which parched more than half of our nation; from a flood that inundated large swaths of Australia to rising seas affecting millions around the world, the reality of the climate crisis is upon us.

Our food systems, our cities, our people and our very way of life developed within a stable range of climatic conditions on Earth. Without immediate and decisive action, these favorable conditions on Earth could become a memory if we continue to make the climate crisis worse day after day after day.

With any great challenge comes great opportunity. We have the rare privilege to rise to an occasion of global magnitude. To do so, our communities, our businesses, our universities, and our governments need to work in harmony to stop the climate crisis. We must summon the very best of the human spirit and draw on our courage, our ingenuity, our intellect, and our determination to confront this crisis. Make no mistake, this crisis will demand no less than our very best. I am optimistic because we have risen to meet the greatest challenges of our past.

So please, take this day and the milestone it represents to reflect on the fragility of our civilization and and the planetary ecosystem on which it depends. Rededicate yourself to the task of saving our future. Talk to your neighbors, call your legislator, let your voice be heard. We must take immediate action to solve this crisis. Not tomorrow, not next week, not next year. Now.

I thought Eman said Obama had to be pulled off the golf course before the raid or something like that. But it doesn't matter. Whenever the president is needed, that's where they usually find him anyway, so it was business as usual on the day of the raid.

Now try putting Hillary 's words back in their proper context of her testimony to Congress on the Benghazi tragedy. But, no , I guess you can't because you don't really give a damn for Americans killed overseas in the line of duty;do you?
