Issa cautioning against questioning character / intent of any member of the House or Senate. Welp, I guess the Democrats will have to sit mute now.

I have errands to run. Not sure if this thread will get any traction or not. Jarvis is on the list, but did not yet make an opening statement.

I think this should be in Breaking or somewhere on the sidebar. Some may miss that it has to do with the Memorials, and that Jarvis is a subpoenaed witness. (Dealing with flu/strep and it’s hard for me to think at the moment. Sorry if I make less sense than usual.) God bless.

Who ordered the shutdown perhaps tht following is why it could be done so fast:

In less than 8 hours of the shutdown, miraculously, professionally printed 3X4 foot signs appeared all over the country in the tens of thousands saying-“this [park, facility, etc. with custom logos] closed due to government shutdown. There has not been a government shutdown in 17 years. These signs were designed, specifications were determined, signs were then requisitioned, bids were posted and vetted, government contracts were awarded. The materials were then ordered and the signs manufactured then distributed U.S. Mails or freight companies.

This shutdown was orchestrated and planned well in advance at least 6-8 months ago. Millions of tax dollars were appropriated and spent in this process. There is a paper trail a mile long leading directly to the White House. Sender was an anonymous government worker...they may be right....Once again our Veterans fought for We The People....BRAVO! Is Obama a despot?

Did the sender know that this really went through the normal government procurement procedure? Or did they just skip all that stuff with specifications and bidding to have a friend of Obama do it for way over normal cost (got to skim something in all of this) and print it quickly just a few days beforehand.

I have pretty much given up on tagging for BN. I remain confused on what "merits" that tag.

Jarvis up now as opening statements continue.

I understand that the current battle re the shutdown will get the attention of most, but this is testimony regarding the actions of this admin during the shutdown.

AM, please get to the sidebar if this hearing regarding the closing of the Memorials merits it, in your opinion. Thanks you.

You probably caught it at the beginning, but I’ll risk being redundant, Jarvis had to be subpoenaed. The look on his at the beginning said it all. Just as spiteful as his Dictator.

This is the circus part of the bread & circus govt we have. There will be no repercussions for Jarvis or the administration.

Jarvis is talking to the Whitehouse, but can’t remember to whom...he should be cashiered on the spot.

So it takes 9 during shutdown to keep out vets vs. 4 without the shutdown.

This is only semi-related, but how did Congress members have “Thank you, Capitol Police” buttons ready to wear within a couple hours of the shots near the Capitol (that turned out to be law enforcment shooting dead an unarmed woman whose vehicle couldn’t go anywhere)?

semi yet HIGHLY IMPORTANT.

I had not heard about this particular fiasco

I seriously doubt that there had been a warehouse full of such buttons stored for “upcoming events”

I have pretty much given up on tagging for BN. I remain confused on what "merits" that tag.

I came to understand a while ago that if I think it's important, the Mods will pull my thread not only from BN, but nuke it completely (from orbit, just to be sure). My name is usually the kiss of death.

I see thread was put in "Front page news" - Meanwhile a day old speech from Bibi sits in Breaking. Baffling.
