Rush doing a nice job of laying out what F&F was in easy terms. Taking the folks step by step thru Issa’s investigation.
CALL ISSA NOW!!!! CALL HIM NOW!!!!!
Give him your support, tell him to stand firm, that millions are standing behind him.
I just called Issa office and told him he had millions standing behind him and to stand firm. She said she would give him the message.
Give a call and support him.
202-2253906 and listen to prompt, then press 4 to talk to a live person.
Holder had to retract claim that Bush AG knew about F&F (On Drudge)
The link didn’t work for me, it kept crashing.
hope these guys break for lunch soon, I haven’t had my breakfast yet here in CA
Issa rebuttal to Lynch: we have conducted 24 interviews...exhaustive...we have interviewed virtually all the people made available to us at the local level....we left no stone unturned
Rep Jim Jordan, Republican of Ohio: we asked AG if he had communicated with Prez, he said he had not...something’s gotta give
—Rat Gerald Connelly, D-Fairfax up now.
Almost started crying at beginning of statement, calls this a kangaroo court.—
That is also very telling. They are like the burglar that gets caught red handed with his hand halfway inside the safe and now trying to explain that he was just hired to test the locks. Or the guy that wrecks his car, runs to the phone booth a block away, and reports it stolen.
They are absolutely desperate. We are watching the whole thing collapse before our very eyes.
The WH/DOJ plan is to make some absurd EP claim to ~70,000 documents and throw this to the courts. Then they will decline comment because it is before the courts. All the while the Rats in Congress throw bombs & the MSM covers for them.
Barry & Holder just want to run out the clock to the election. They aren't interested in gun laws right now.
Norm, you are asking the $ 64,000 question.
This has the potential to split the Dem party right down the middle.
Obama was a handicap to all Dems downticket before—now he is an absolute disaster.
If Obamacare gets shut down by the Supremes and Sheriff Joe has a presser with onformation that clearly shows Zippy’s narrative to be a fraud, Dems will have to uncomfortably choose which they will support—a fraud, or try to salvage the entire election process.
I wonder what the Clintons are going to do?
I am a fan of the Ulsterman Report—it is clear there are many Dems high up that know Obama is going to be a disaster, not only for their party, but believe it or not , for the country. Zippy has very evil plans for Term 2.
Zippy has thrown the entire Dem party under the bus this morning. They now have to choose who they will side with—the criminals or the rule of law.
From the Dems on the committee this morning—not one is siding with the rule of law.
The fight for the minds of the electorate is critical right now—how this whole issue is communicated and framed, and responded to by the Republicans.
Now Zippy has brought this down directly on his head, when, before, he could have distanced himself from Holder. Now he is joined at the hip with Holder.
Holder is the firewall to Obama.
another RAT talking point today is that focus has drifted away from Brian Terry (always personalize — major pillar of mob-rule rules)
I agree, but I mean the Dems in general. O and H are temp occupants. The Agenda is what matters most to the dems. Sure they worship Obama in Public, but one way or another, he’ll be out of a job eventually.
What I’m saying/asking is will they let the gun control agenda go down with him or let him/them take the fall in order to fight another day?
What did the President know, and when did he know it?
I’m pleased to tell you that that is not the case; in fact he is getting some support: “23. PUSA is exactly right. Holder and everyone else has repeatedly said that Obama is not involved. Therefore EP DOES NOT APPLY HERE. They were asking the AG for documents NOT the White House. There is no way to apply EP in this case UNLESS Obama and the AG’s office have been lying. Shit is going to have to hit the fan now because now the networks are going to have to report it. We’ll see if you become as concerned as we are.”
Rat Mike Quigley of all places CHICAGO—arguing that the bulk of weapons going to Meh-i-co come from the US through straw purchasers and go directly to the drug cartels.
Paul Gosar-R. Arizona of Prescott/Flagstaff—syas I am the only one here form Arizona and I resent the talk this morning about arms being bought in AZ and going across the border.
Reading a very strongly worded statement in favor the work of the Committee.
START YOUR OWN THREAD W/ YOUR INFO, PLEASE!!!!!!
We need ALL available FReepers, and their peeps to start calling!!
Make way for Hillary to be the Demo Nominee
“... because now the networks are going to have to report it.”
That’s interesting because it’s a tacit acknowledgement that the networks have been covering for the president until this point. I think libs know the press has their back.
I’d have thought that the POTUS would not be so politically vindictive as to outright LIE about the SCOTUS in a SOTU speech.
The Constitution is a framework for politics; any government IS politics.
Good point — I’m so focused on copying and transcribing that I’m missing stuff like that.
Breakfast time for me.
Even in the extraordinarily remote chance the House would impeach him there is absolutely no way Obama would ever be convicted and removed from office by the Senate ... and removal from office is what is called for, not just a condemnation (i.e.., impeachment).
Maybe. NYT criticizing Obama as a leader
WHI claimed that Media would start turning against Obama
No one died during Watergate.
THIS SHOULD BE OUR CRY!!!!!!!!
