I have a strong suspicion that the missing emails contain some over-the-top demands by some ignorant Senate Dems.

Here is Levin in a March 2013 interview

"Toward the end of my interview with Levin, he let slip a tantalizing tidbit. Sometime in the next few months, the permanent subcommittee plans to call the Internal Revenue Service to task for allowing the political super PACs to be classified as tax-exempt 501(c)(4)s.“Tax-exempt 501(c)(4)s are not supposed to be engaged in politics,” he said.“It is against the law to do so.” Then he added, with a certain undeniable relish,“We’re going to go after them.”

Well, Levin you are either ignorant of the law or pretending to be so you can go after groups that do not favor you politically.

This particular brink is in great need of some obliging coincidences.

It's time to play by the same rules. Conservatives would never stoop as low as they seem so willing to go, but when it comes to digging up skeletons in one's closet, it's fair game.

When teenage misconduct trumps laughing about getting a rapist off, it might be time to take off the gloves.

Sure does seem that way. But a corrupt politician who cut his political teeth in Chicago - one of the most politically corrupt cities in the country - wouldn't be able to change his stripes as the president of the country.

Can't think of any organization or policy or legislation or personal associations to which he aligned himself that would paint him in a different light as a true blue American.

In fact, quite the opposite.

We were hijacked in 2008, but it was by our fellow countrymen who elected him.

One of the creepiest things I've ever heard was Hillary chuckling and giggles of amusement while talking about the guilt of her client raping a 12 year old girl. I heard a Arkansas talk show host say the 12 year was treated so roughly she was in a coma after the rape.

There is nothing that is cute, amusing, hilarious about this case it was a travesty of justice.

Hillary took this client she wasn't assigned or a public defender. It speaks directly to who she is as a person. What she's willing to do and be a party of to achieve her goals.

They could make a horror movie using that tape as the premise of the story.

To a lot of us, it shows she's two different people. The one behind the scenes - a reputation of being ruthless (not tough)- and the one in front of a camera and a microphone cautiously pretending to be something she's not.

Seems to be a requirement to run as a Democrat these days. Doublespeak and talking out of both sides of your mouth depending on your audience.

In comparison, JFK would be a conservative today.

Gov. Bobby Jindal made a joke:

"'Are we witnessing right now the most radically, extremely liberal, ideological president of our entire lifetime right here in the United States of America, or are we witnessing the most incompetent president of the United States of America in the history of our lifetimes? You know, it is a difficult question,' he said.'I've thought long and hard about it. Here's the only answer I've come up with, and I'm going to quote Secretary Clinton:'What difference does it make?''"

No she was person who learned a lesson a long long time ago taught by Joe Kennedy to his sons. "It's not who you really are that matters....it's what people think you are that matters!".

Hence the orchestrated public relations of her struggles to 'save women and children' her struggles to 'save' her marriage with a hound dog of a husband and raise her daughter and keep her family intact. Her 'Hard Choices' as a woman Secretary of State.....and the band plays on...

Bubba and Hillary are cut from the same cloth. Birds of a feather.....He's a crowing Cock and she's a cackling Hen. Considering her age, maybe more like a cawing Crow now.

With Liberals, every cause they scrape together puts humanity on the brink.

* American kids are dying of obesity and starvation simultaneously.

* Illegal Mexicans without Drivers Licenses are going to die!

* Gays who aren't allowed to marry like normal humans are going to commit suicide!

* Without a Carbon Tax, the world is going to die!

* Without Gun Control, Liberals could die!

As many as 15 Somali-American men have left their homes in Minnesota in recent months to travel to the Middle East and join up with ISIS, the jihadist army at war with Syria and Iraq, according to Minnesota Public Radio.

The fighters appear to have made the decision to go fight with Islamic State of Iraq and Syria/Levant while the terror group was fighting to overthrow Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, but some may now be in Iraq, where the marauding group is seeking to topple Baghdad.

"A Muslim has to stand up for [what's] right," Abdirahmaan Muhumed told MPR News through a series of Facebook messages dating back to the beginning of the year. "I give up this worldly life for Allah."
