Oh, I misread.

So the Lebanese Kardashian and this Marine General exchanged tens of thousands of emails?

20-30,000 pages doesn't mean 20-30,000 separate e-mails.

The volume suggests that document attachments were an important part of the traffic.

0bama wastes no time as his second term begins.. ‘Replace the old guard with the new ‘emasculated/gay’ guard who’s ‘ALL IN’ for sequestration and unilateral nuclear disarmament’. This is so obvious it stinks.. Unless you’re an 0bama voter.

Exactly. I saw a picture of her and either her sister or Mom with the General and his wife Holly at an event. The General and Holly were dressed conservatively and appropriately and the Hoochie Mama and her sis or Ma were dress in short, black, show off everything (especially the bouncing girls up top) dresses. And boy were they out of their cages. Skanky! Big time. When I saw that picture I knew girlfriend and her sister were there for official business. Very official. Honey trap official.

What the hell is going on.

Indeed... Paula Broadwell's father *did* say that this thing was bigger than it initially looked, and now we see a glimmer of what he likely meant. This is some ominous stuff coming down the pike...

Now we have an idea behind why Broadwell was perturbed by what Kelley was up to on the CENTCOM HQ base in Tampa! Petraeus left Tampa and the military in 2010 and I couldn’t figure why Broadwell would be “threatening” Kelley (telling her to back off something vague) when Kelley was not anywhere near Petraeus or Broadwell.

Then Kelley hired John Edwards’ criminal defense lawyer! That didn’t make any sense for a woman who simply complained to the FBI about cyber-stalking. Now we know why.

Could be Team 0bama doing a serious purging of his naysayers among the top brass, using the FBI. Culling the last of the straight old white guys. Hmmmm.. James McJunkin was the DC Field office FBI head who 'retired' on 18 October..

From what I know the current director of the FBI is Robert Mueller, A 'lover of John Kerry' so we could be seeing a MAJOR push by the Socialist regime to purge the last of the good guys and install players more hardcore than mere Socialists. This is sickening.

If the Obama Administration started this to deflect attention away from Benghazi, they may have made a serious miscalculation. If however this is about something else entirely, then who knows? This is getting into real ominous territory, real quick...

Just did a search.

Mikhail Nikolayevich Tukhachevsky (Russian: ; February 16 1893 – June 12, 1937) was a Marshal of the Soviet Union, commander in chief of the Red Army (1925–1928), and one of the most prominent victims of Joseph Stalin’s Great Purge.Contents read more

Please put me on your list but I think I see these when you do. Are you getting any sleep as these are coming fast and furious?

I could hardly believe this. The 20,000 - 30,000 pages of emails tells me she must have known this guy for a number of years to write that much. And, how does she have that much time to devote to this?

According to other articles today, she and her doctor husband are losing their house and an office building and they are completely in debt with credit cards on top of non-payment of the house notes and office building notes.

I think all the players so far need to be put in separate rooms and depositions taken - who did what to whom? We need a score card to keep up with the players. How many more?

If America gets upset about these military brass having ‘sex scandals’, shouldn’t America be more upset that their president does the gay thing? Oddly, if these Generals were having GAY affairs, no one would dare talk about it! Whoever talked about it would quickly be assailed as homophobic!!

That’s right. I would not be surprised at all if Ogabe is purging the military of those that don’t support him. The only difference is that he does not seem to be into shooting them that much. But never put that past a marxist. Just give him the chance and he will.

“Are you getting any sleep as these are coming fast and furious?”

Very little and when I do I feel guilty. This is the most frightening time of my life. Fear for my country. Huge. A madman sits in the office where presidents USED to sit. And the world has gone mad with him.
Israel is on the brink. States wanting to secede. Danger everywhere. Can you trust your neighbor anymore?
Pray for this country. For us all.

Now I am nuts. What does this mean:

a 37-year-old Tampa woman whose close friendship with Petraeus ultimately led to his downfall.

How does the Lebanese Kardashian's "close friendship" with Petraeus lead to his downfall? His affair was with Broadwell. What am I missing? Was he messing with the Lebanese woman too??

Seeing what's happened in just four short years.. An entire sea change of America's pulse? I wonder if one presidency could really cause all of this. I understand the 'God's plan' aspect but.. Who's to say the Anti-Christ or Satan can't be extraterrestrials?

Okay, everyone! Sleep tight!!! LOL

I did see it. Make no mistake, this bomb is going to blow up in 0coward's face. These are just the sputterings of the fuse.

Something to e-mail to every talking head, every Senator and every House rep.

--------------------------------------------------------

Fact One:

1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.

Plus Fact Two:

2) No rescue mission was attempted.

Equals Fact Three:

3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.
