Dianne Feinstein vents ire over 'avalanche of leaks'

In a televised interview Wednesday, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein repeatedly vented her ire over leaks of classified information and she signaled that she favors a more aggressive crackdown on those who are passing national security secrets to the press.

"What we're seeing...is an Anschluss, an avalanche of leaks. And it's very, very disturbing. You know, it's dismayed our allies. It puts American lives in jeopardy. It puts our nation's security in jeopardy," Feinstein (D-Calif.) said on CNN's "Situation Room" program. She said the Senate Intelligence Committee plans to meet Thursday morning with Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to discuss the issue.

"Anschluss" does not mean "an avalanche of ideas"--it has a very specific meaning, ie uniting or the annexation of Austria to Germany in 1938. One of Hitler's first acts.

Leaks=”If we (0bama and cabal) can’t govern America, no one will”

Sounds like Germany, 1945.

Truly an odd choice of words. Feinstein is a smart lady; she doesn’t say things without thinking first.

She’s also one of the few Democrats who seems genuinely interested in defending the USA.

I usually get eyerolls when I say this, but for years I have actually admired Di Fi when it comes to her expertise on National Security. She does genuinely seem to care about keeping America secure. In every other way I practically despise her.
I know it makes no sense, so flame away.

No kind words for this lib that wants to take our guns.

She’s a snake in the grass, beware. The Dems are setting up to dump 0bama and recruit the Hildebeast.

Anschluss has a specific meaning and I believe Dianne is sending someone a message.

Perhaps the quote or transcript is wrong and she used the word ‘schuss’ instead.

I would like to believe that, however my suspicion is that she's likely feigning a bit of pro-American rhetoric, behaving as though this is an election year (and it is, for her.)

Then she must think Zero is about to annex Mexico or Canada.

Most likely Mexico, allowing the vast majority of illegal immigrants and former Mexicans of voting age to suddenly become US citizens and vote in November.

What a nightmare.

A “schuss of leaks” sounds plausible. An “Anschluss” is a horse of a different color.

I'm sure that she said exactly what she meant. Her use of that specific term couldn't have occurred as a slip-of-the-tongue.

As another Freeper commented, DiFi’s husband is a war profiteer. He has interests in at least one defense contractor and makes big $ as long as the conflicts keep rolling on. Hey, if you want the government to buy your stuff, you have to have some long wars!

Notice that she is never criticized by her liberal cronies and fans. It’s all about the money and power.

This coming from Mrs. "Mr. and Mrs. America, turn them all in (guns)". If this Jewess fell down stairs and broke her neck I wouldn't piss on her to put it out (mixed metaphor I admit, but applicable in her case).

In fact, should I ever meet this stinking leftist in public with the commensurate amount of beer in my bladder, her turkey-neck scarf would be saturated in kidney filtered Anchor Steam to make San Fransisco proud.

Still according to the Obamedia, it isn’t as bad as Scooter Libby revealing a paper pusher in the CIA who already was known.

She’s also one of the few Democrats who seems genuinely interested in defending the USA.

She's also on the Senate Appropriations Committee and her husband is a recipient of government defense contracts.

I don't trust her in the slightest. She puts on the respectable matronly act only to look like a reasonable alternative to that asshat douchebag Boxer. But they're both crooked as hell, in my opinion.

“She’s also one of the few Democrats who seems genuinely interested in defending the USA.”

When the scandal about the conditions at Walter Reed Hospital broke a few years ago, The chairwoman of the Senate oversight sub committee resigned in an attempt to avoid disgrace. Mission Accomplished her resignation made the news on page 25 of the national MSM press..... It was Dianne Feinstein.

Feinstein’s concern over the troops and our National Defence are as phoney as a 3 dollar bill. Keep in mind that Dianne’s previous job before being elected Senator was San Francisco’s Mayor. That’s where her heart is....Should tell you something right there.

It’s OK to be a rich industrialist if you are liberal. I’m getting really tired of Leno’s lame jokes about Romney being rich and out of touch, and I’m no Romney fan. Leno - who has a garage and about 32 expensive cars and motorcycles. Libs are such hypocrites.

On many if not most issues, I disagree with Senator Feinstein, BUT.... On every occasion that I have called and/or asked for a meeting with a staff member, some real flesh and blood human shows up.

Sure cannot say that about members of the Republican delegation from California... For example, Elton Gallegely...the invisible congressman. Stick with Di-Fi...

Wasn’t it then Mayor Di Fi who leaked inside details on Richard Ramerez aka “The Night Stalker.” LA PD was furious at Di Fi and so Richard heard this and threw his gun and shoes in the bay.

We need to save a few stones!

It looks like Israel has been venting to US lawmakers in a major way.

It's likely that Feinstein in using this "A" word is sending a signal that she is in agreement with Israel on this one.

She’s not alone.

There’s evidently quite a number of dyed-in-the-wool

DIMRATS

seriously frightened to terrified at the dramatic stunts OThuga and company are evidently PLANNING to pull to enable him to stay in power . . . some say regardless.

As one of the gloalists said decades ago, however,

NOTHING occurs in politics that was not meticulously planned.

The puppet masters are pulling strings aplenty.

And one of their supreme goals is maximum death and bloodshed from maximum mayhem.

I am sure Chris Matthews will be on Monday night telling us how racially hostile DF is to the President, and hopefully, for their sake, that shuts Feinstein down.

Give her the mike and let her keep going.

I think Axelrod is up to his commie marbles in this!

I would not put it past Chicago to do this to the nation for political gain!

Look at the doctor in Pakistan they gave up, look at the Team 6 revelations - that did not need to be broadcast. Now they got Hollywood in the Pentagon making movies!

Actually, it is, I believe, a word the Jewish scientists who worked on nuclear science before and during the development of atomic energy to describe an exponential chain reaction, so your idea makes sense.

Feinswine is a bilderberger. That bunch had their annual meeting in Chantilly VA last week. This ‘rant’ from Diane may be a sign we ought to make note of. We may have seen an inadvertent slip of lost support for little barry bastard commie. Maybe the too high promotion for the affirmative action fraud is starting to go to his drug addled head and the puppet masters are planning to ‘make a change we can believe in’. Has John Feckless Kerry been under the radar enough to be revivable now?
