Remember the Martins and the Newt Gingrich cell phone call they “just happened” to record on a Radio Shack scanner?
This means we're in a police state operating under cover of extortion.
Just accidentally found a Petraeus infidelity.
We really need to elect some squeaky clean nerds and send them to Congress.
That General who demonstrably lied to Congress:
Why is he not in prison?

Shoot, it might even explain our weak-kneed CJ/SCOTUS.
my first impression, also.
“Is this one of the reasons the GOP is so weak-kneed? “
I’ve often wondered if many congress people were compromised. Now it seems liklier.
This also explains why it’s important to elect people who have character.
TEA Party Members receive copies of all information gained from spying on Congress, Congress. Don’t want you boys and girls not knowing everything. Just putting this out in the interest of disclosure.
“Shoot, it might even explain our weak-kneed CJ/SCOTUS.”
Indeed - it’s hard to explain the tortured “logic” of his Obamacare decision otherwise.
What is more disturbing is the number of people who are elected/appointed to high office that have those kinds of skeletons and weak constitutions to get lead astray. Would they spy on me they would be very bored outside of my ammo purchases.
BOehner’s tanning secret may be in peril?
He say its real, only his phone records know for sure.
900 FBI files? NSA phone records?
What difference does it make?

NSA has nothing to do with it.
Anyone else remember how confident 0bummer was that the PUBBIES would cave during the government shutdown?
He seemed to know exactly when they would cave as well.
Which made him not budge an inch.
This would explain that.
the purge will be of anyone wearing any kind of govt uniform. basically.
the good ones are being drummed out now anyway.
I think this is just blackmail writ large. They “accidentally” let slip that the NSA spies on everyone. Suddenly the GOP is constantly engaging in circular firing squads, and is no longer vertebrate.
Cruz must either have no skeletons, or he just don’t care.
Been there and done that at high volumes.
