Didn’t you know? Valerie Jarrett is our defacto president.
this plus all the other pieces add up to something HUGE.
Administration people NOT wanting to continue in their jobs.... INSIDERS wanting OUT.
interesting times indeed; keep eyes peeled in the next couple weeks/month
Depends on how high up you are. They still do background checks for defense contractor jobs.
If the affair was phony then how does one explain the emails sent after the breakup (see CNN story mentioned in this thread) or is CNN story a lie also? Not that I believe CNN, just wondering about the info
If you remember, way back in 2008, Petraeus' name was being thrown around as a possible GOP nominee in 2012.
THIS is a great example of how far the Obama machine will go to prepare the destruction of potential rivals.
Who is feeding CNN this email information?
did he REALLY? Or did he embrace “the Sword of Damocles” zer0bama held over his head, so he could speak his mind at any inquiry or trial?
Obama has a track record of picking corrupt losers:
Joe “I Know Nothing” Biden, Van “Commie-Con” Jones, Hillary “I Can’t Recall” Clinton, Eric “My People” Holder, Janet “Fat & Furious” Napolitano, Leon “I Never...” Panetta, Kathleen “Porn-Mommy” Sebelius, Timothy “Turbo-Tax” Geithner, Hilda “Stat-Cooker” Solis, General “Sugar Daddy” Petraeus, etc.
Oh - and Moochelle “Cheeseburger” Obama
Losers, Liars, Tax Cheats, ex-Cons, and Limo-Communists
Between lying about Benghazi and his biographer/bimbo - what a man to pick Director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
If General Petraeus obviously did these things - you know there are dozens of more slimey acts he is guilty of.
I just have to believe that the Chicago thugs knew about this affair before Bambi put Petraeous up for the CIA job. For what reason did they go forward with the nomination? Maybe to blackmail him? I’m guessing the CIA has a lot of dirt in their files on Bambi, maybe not anymore.
What about her husband and children? How much would she have to be paid to betray them? The whole thing really doesn’t make sense to me. But if Obama is involved, it doesn’t surprise me.
I can’t imagine ‘our side’ didn’t think of this before the elections.
They suspected unstoppable massive voter fraud.
So, let it happen and then impeach.
Has anyone posted the drudge newsmax article?
This devastating stuff from the current drudge headline newsmax article:
Still, the White House, with concurrence by the FBI and Justice Department, held off on asking for Petraeus resignation until after the election. His resignation occurred three days after the election, avoiding the possibility that Obamas ill-fated appointment of Petraeus could become an issue in the election.
FBI agents on the case were aware that such a decision had been made to hold off on forcing him out until after the election and were outraged.
The decision was made to delay the resignation apparently to avoid potential embarrassment to the president before the election, an FBI source says. To leave him in such a sensitive position where he was vulnerable to potential blackmail for months compromised our security and is inexcusable.
I absolutely agree with your scenario. I think what made him decide to admit to adultery was the fact that he was going to have to testify UNDER OATH next week. That was the red line for him .... so he ducked out. If he was truly doing the honorable thing for honor’s sake (as his letter implies), he either would not have betrayed his vows or he would have resigned much earlier. The guy joined a corrupt administration in lying to the American people and he is continuing that dishonesty, even on his way out.
He’ll still have to testify ... maybe he’ll take the 5th. Petraeus better watch his back .... he is still a danger to Obama as I’m sure he knows plenty not only about Benghazi. Let’s hope he’s not so “depressed over this affair” that he ‘decides’ to do something drastic (like the recent Secret Service agent).
Maybe this was the sex scandal drudge was referring to before the election.
Look folks I think there are broader issues here and this may be of concern to any and all Americans. We need to be asking the FBI why they were hacking into, and spying on the General with little to no evidence of criminal wrong doing. Yes, the General was possibly open to blackmail; however, his affair had been terminated years ago and I’m pretty sure during his screening process he had mentioned his affair to the CIA so that they could conduct a background investigation into the woman. The CIA conducts routine full scope polygraphs and this would most certainly come up. Please I ask you all to read the CIA spymaster book about George Kisevalter, he was regarded as one of the best spooks in the business and had an extramarital affair that HE admitted to and brought to the attention of the CIA. THe CIA conducted their own background check on the woman and determined she was not a foreign agent nor a threat so they allowed him to continue his relationship. This isn’t about Patraeus having an affair this is about the FBI being a political tool to spy on it’s supposed enemies or political opponents list. The FBI needs to be put into check and have some sort of bipartisan commission to check and double check it’s operations. They have smeared the good General’s name, and in the process have probably broken surveillance laws without the FISA process being used or going through the courts. Why were they spying on Americans with little to no evidence? Something just doesn’t seem right to me.
Good point. I dunno, possibly there was an affair, but the reason for the sudden resignation was the embarrassing CIA leaks in the last month or so.
I suspect that the emails are part of the cover story.
"What it basically means is: to change the perception of reality of every American that despite of the abundance of information no one is able to come to sensible conclusions in the interest of defending themselves, their families, their community, and their country.It's a great brainwashing process which goes very slow and is divided into four basic stages.The first stage being "demoralization".It takes from 15 to 20 years to demoralize a nation. Why that many years? Because this is the minimum number of years required to educate one generation of students in the country of your enemy exposed to the ideology of [their] enemy. In other words, Marxism-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least 3 generation of American students without being challenged or counterbalanced by the basic values of Americanism; American patriotism."
I’m sickened by all the events that have been withheld from the American people ‘until after the election.’ This is fraud.
Iran fires on a US drone on Nov. 1 - but we just found out this week - after the election.
Libya hearings - after the election.
CIA Director resigns - after the election.
If Petraeus resigned even last week, Romney would have won. And Obama knows this.
This makes a lot more sense.
Then it would be Petraeus' obligation to tell it all at the hearing.
Good for you!

Hey Pete, you must be reading FR.
OR it is not true OR they knew but it was something to use against him when needed.
Remember we have a DESTROYER in chief sitting in our house and a lying media - only tells what is allow.
His affair was with obama when he agreed to take the director's job. NEVER align yourself to EVIL. Whatever good obama touches he destroys. That's the destroyer's job!
Exactly!! The media covers for the evil one from the beginning of HUGE anti-American going on’s. We don’t believe ANYTHING from them - unless one enjoys being deceived. Garbage in, garbage out. Protect oneself from filling the mind w/propaganda - don’t allow it in.
Next time say 'yes' but it was bush's or Patreaus's fault. Works for the POS commie, community leader low life! I bet they would be honored to give the destroyer a job.
I don't think so- they were out in the open moreso than has been reported and the wimpy husband wrote that 'Busted!' letter to the NYT.
This looks more like an average affair, a weak woman powering-tripping on a RINO douchebag.
Timing of the book, on the other hand, is everything hinky.
Just like Rielle Hunter was embedded with John Edwards.
Which would sort of make sense of the history of the affair. The affair started when he was doing well in the desert, and maybe stopped when he started covering for Obama in the CIA. Watching your hero eat cr*p from his boss is not an endearing event.
We did not have an election this past week. As the news reports have been describing, the swing states were all rigged to deliver the win for Obama.
This was planned all along. People postulated as to why Obama seemed so disinterested in the first debate. He knew that the election outcome had already been decided and that he was just going through the motions, trying to figure out when his next tee time was.
Keep your powder dry.
Oh, and that 22nd amendment thingy...???
Expect a case added to the newly packed USSC case-log questioning the very validity of that amendment in 2015.
Obama is there for the longhaul.
Patraeus is like several generals and men in positions of power I have known: they became corrupted by their own sense of importance and began to believe all the fawning adulation from sycophants was really true.
Broadwell reminds me of another ambitious, military academy grad who deliberately used her femininity to entice a powerful man with her sexual charms, and ended up getting ensnared herself.
Hopefully, if he testifies, he will do so with an acute awareness of history and eternity as his guides.
"If four Americans get killed, it's not OPTIMAL."
They own him. He ceased being any kind of conservative -- if he ever was -- when he took up with Bobo.
Yes! Sharp eye.
-—A chick named Broadwell ( her married name) Imbedded , inbed, whatever, in Afganyland, writing a BOOK called ALL IN. It’s hurting my jaws but check this. This chick is a West Point grad, did a tour, milked the system for some special schooling, Is still in the Army Reserves and is STILL a light colonel. At a minimum General Davy is looking at a fraternization charge ( if there is a camo dress, anyway)-—he might lose his good conduct medal. ( remember the old cartoon? sharp chick is checking out the general’s ribbons in a bar and says “why general, you don’t have a good conduct medal?”). I’m guessing this gal has all the security clearance she needs to diddle Davy AND his email. Something more sparked The FBI to look at Gen. Davy in Afghanyland-—————————————————————————————————————————Remember this whole deal with the bookie chick came up when he was still in the Army running the show in Sandland, the book got published, and Davy kept banging away. These big time operator guys tend to be one dimensional; that is, good at one thing, in this case soldiering, but real putzes in the rest of the world. This whole clusterflock looks to me like serious inbreeding in the West Point officer corp. The air is rare up there and the grads MUST avoid dieting on their own BS.-————That oath we take doesn’t have any opt-outs for cute girls.
Wait, that ended up being Buttugly Bob Menendez (D-NJ) ... wonder if Petraeus was mentioned in any of those guess-the-adulterer threads...
There are still great leaders out there. Gen. Petraeus was available to do what was required at the time. And now after this, his time has passed. There are new leaders always waiting in the wings. Remember it is the continual consciousness of our western way of life that each American either adds to positively, or negatively, like a floating cloud absorbing our breathe of worth, enhanced or diminished.
Receiving classified information and publishing it seems to be allowed under the first amendment.
But yes, most would consider it treasonous in spirit if not legally.
Meant somewhat tongue in cheek.
Constitional Defintion of treason:
This word imports a betraying, treachery, or breach of allegiance.
The Constitution of the United States, Art. III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort. This offence is punished with death. By the same article of the Constitution, no person shall be convicted of treason, unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court.
Dictionary definition of treason:
1. the offense of acting to overthrow one's government or to harm or kill its sovereign.
2. a violation of allegiance to one's sovereign or to one's state.
3. the betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.
I think this will end up being just a violation of the Secrets law and not treasonous...unless the press is considered an enemy of the State. Big picture, what does that say about the press. :))
Me too, it’s been a very difficult week. Fortunately, my family is understanding. But, I can’t even involve myself in anything remotely sad because I’m right back to the tears.
President Barack Obama said Petraeus had led the Central Intelligence Agency “with characteristic intellectual rigor, dedication and patriotism.”
“I am completely confident that the CIA will continue to thrive and carry out its essential mission, and I have the utmost confidence in Acting Director Michael Morell and the men and women of the CIA who work every day to keep our nation safe,” the president said in a written statement.
“Going forward, my thoughts and prayers are with Dave and Holly Petraeus, who has done so much to help military families through her own work. I wish them the very best at this difficult time,” Obama continued.
Director of National Intelligence James Clapper issued a statement that did not specify a reason for Petraeus’ departure but praised his colleague extensively.
“From his long, illustrious Army career to his leadership at the helm of CIA, Dave has redefined what it means to serve and sacrifice for one’s country,” said Clapper.
Sources said that the woman whom Petraeus had an affair with is his biographer, a fellow West Point graduate 20 years his junior named Paula Broadwell.
“The full back story is not yet clear,” said the New York Times, “though his affair came to light after FBI agents conducting a criminal investigation into possible security breaches examined his computer e-mails. The decision to step down was his.”
According to Israel’s Channel 2 news, the FBI knew of Petraeus’s indiscretion for months, making it unlikely that the White House did not know of it as well. This raises the question — was the affair kept secret unil the elections, in order to spare the Obama administration embarrassment that could have negatively affected Obama’s chances for reelection?
Petraeus was due to testify next week in hearings regarding the attack on the U.S.’s Benghazi consulate. Fox News reported that he is now not expected to testify in those hearings. “
He must have told them what his testimony would be. Wouldn’t surprise me if he has an “accident” on the way to the hearing.
Yes, IMO, they have known about this affair from the start... maybe even before it began.(honey trap) I think they placed him head of the CIA so they could use him as a fall guy if needed.
Evidently she was a WP grad too. He should have remembered: Can’t spell trouble without trou.

“I dont get it....How does this get him out of testifying about Benghazi?”
It shouldn’t and wouldn’t with any of the rest of us with top secret clearances caught sleeping with a mediot with some classified pillow talk pre and post coital.
$inator Fineswine, immediately said that P wouldn’t be called up, after he resigned.
B$ $inator. If that applied across the board, anyone leaking classified data, could sleep with a mediot ho, resign and confess to the adultry to avoid testifying.
