The Talk Shows
June 8th, 2014
Guests to be interviewed today on major television talk shows:
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, former Vice Chief of Staff of the Army, Gen. Jack Keane.
MEET THE PRESS (NBC): Pre-empted by coverage of the French Open.
FACE THE NATION (CBS): Sens. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga.
THIS WEEK (ABC): Reps. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., and Tom Cole, R-Okla.; Seattle Mayor Ed Murray.
STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Secretary of State John Kerry; Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
It's as if the regime is daring some of us to create violence somewhere, anywhere just so they can come after us.They want us to bail them out for all their misdeeds and perhaps declare Martial law or the equivalent.Almost happened at the BLM fiasco.
Sad thing is either way they win. If we do create violence anywhere they will spin it as crazy right wingers and the press will eat it up. If we don't create any stuff they will only accelerate what they are doing and the Cloward Piven effect will only spin out of control.Either way we lose.
The only possible stopping point for them would be negative press by the DBM and I don't see that happening. Anything to ginn up support for their misdeeds. Misdirection and lies: the Mothers milk of Alinskites.
In regard to McCain saying to close gitmo...a lot of politicians said that....but it didn't happen. It was something that was on the table.
Dead serious here. Does your daughter have and know how to use a serious firearm?
I know for a fact that that piece of paper won't stop a bullet.
Yeah in the gay olympics....
Recent pic of my daughter.
People need to get real as to when impeachment can and should be used and when it’s folly. I personally would like to see more impeachments of lower level individuals to set the precedent.
There have been no impeachments of major figures for anything other than personal scandals. That was established by the Andrew Johnson impeachment and it’s held true.
One has to discern what is political blustering and what is actionable.
Graham and McCain fall into the former. Is Feinstein for real or is she just blustering also?
Even if the House came up with Articles of Impeachment, Reid’s Senate would table them. The only way Articles would ever be raised is if the Dems raised them. Otherwise, the Pubbies are seemingly intelligent enough to know that their raising them would be clouded of rancid charges of being RACIST!
I should add, I agree with Alan West.
My daughter says she will not have a firearm in her house but that was before asshole was kicked out.
So she has no gun inside BUT......not to fear....
I HAVE A LOADED GUN BY MY BESIDE AT ALL TIMES!
I live right across the street. Son-in-law knows I have this gun, purchased and legally licensed in Delaware. I was trained in its use as well.
She is scared, Larry, kept saying the front door won’t lock right when she leaves. SHE FIXED IT!
Also, granddaughter’s bike’s tire went flat. Daughter went to store, got a tube....and SHE FIXED IT!!!!
Son-in-law, in periods between hangovers and crack trips, would mow MY lawn, that’s part of the deal.
SHE MOWED IT!
I am so proud of her.
I agree with you on the media/press being our main opponent.
I would add the educational establishment as a close second because if you listen to young millennials today, they parrot the Democrat party line without knowing the truth or understanding history or civics, etc. They also believe if they argue loudly enough, they will cow the opposition into not responding or arguing back.
Speaking of impeachment....General Mulcasey had the best comment of all...SOMEBODY QUICK TELL THE REPUBLICANS!
He said that, technically, the President broke no laws. There is a provision in that notify congress thing in that the prez can move without congressional approval should it be necessary. So they came up with that poor health thing and sent, as is their wont, Susan Rice out to lie.
Mulcasey said that it is also perfectly legal for the President of the U.S. to release everybody in a federal prison at one time if he desired. He has pardon powers after all.
So he’d break no law but would such an action be something for the betterment of the country, a result our President should want and NOT in keeping with his oath of office.
Why can’t Boehner get out of the tanning booth and say the same as above and say it over and over and over?
Instead we get Lindsay saying NEXT TIME?
Oh, and y’all heard about the VA hospitals in Arizona are neck deep in the falsifying of records?
Hmmm, isn’t one of that state’s senators the champion of the military man?
Am I to understand that Juan McCain knew NOTHING about the VA issues in his state, that not on constituent every complained?
No wait....wasn’t McCain working heartily to improve the VA system as a keystone of his presidential campaign in 2008?
NO WAIT....that was campaign finance reform, something we all lay awake nights worrying about.
Kudos to FOX News and Chris Wallace on a great show.
Juan Williams is either certifiably nuts
or an Obama-plant purporting the deserter
and maker-of-IEDs-for-the-Taliban is ... a “child”.
Juan said that, for now, we all should be welcoming this “child” home.
He said this.
Well, I live in Maine, with a 1.5 million population and a very low crime rate.
Even we have story after story in the news of these jerk types breaking in, executing their ex’s and then killing themselves or fleeing.
Find some of these clippings from your area and give them to her. Ask her who is supposed to protect her daughter....THE POLICE? (only minutes away when seconds count)
The only other solution I see is for some unnamed pistol packin’ granny to move in immediately.
You have to remember that the Articles of Impeachment are in effect an indictment with the House sitting as a Grand Jury. There is no burden of proof. Only charges are made. Reid cannot table anything
A realistic hope would be that the sheer volume and weight of them would make the Dems to abandon The One for their own self interest..
I think General Mulcasey is correct and the reason no impeachment would work.
Hmmmm....don't you "hit" everyone?
So, speaking of timing, either Obama had the Bergdahl deal in his back pocket waiting for a new scandal to push off the attention radar, or having the Friendly Fire from the VA scandal just was a two-fer for him.
The Bergdahl deal might just be the Obama Doctrine solution to his problem with his base; when will Gitmo get closed? After all, now that the guys at the top of the bad guy list have bene released, what's the harm in releasing the lesser bad guys?
And how many American lives do you want to risk putting these bad guys back in custody?
Bottom line; Obama has just undone all the years of sacrifice and controversy we spent in Iraq and Afghanistan since 9/11/2001. Next time we go into an undeclared war, we need to set a requirement that we go into war, win it, solve the problem that created the need to go to war in the first place, and then come home. We have a moral obligation to minimize the need for war, but we do not have a moral obligation to re-build a country that was a mess in the firat place.
If we do want to go into the re-building business, we should start with someplace local like Detroit, and figure out what works before we keep experimenting all over the globe.
Have a good weekend, See you next Sunday.
As always, thanks for the thread, Alas.
