Is expected to take questions regarding the IRS scandal and Benghazi. We will see......
Actually, I believe that when he mentioned terrorism in his Rose Garden remarks, he was referring to 9/11 (01, that is, and the WTC). He speaks in such a stumbling, confusing manner that it’s hard to follow him. I’ll have to look for a transcript.
The House can impeach. They can impeach the AG for not appointing a SP when the House calls for it by vote. They can impeach the white hut crapper if they want to. But impeaching takes courage, something the republicants seem to have misplaced.
if you find a transcript would you ping me please. I’ll do same if I find one.
I’ve been wondering all this time what Hitlary was doing on that day. Now I know.

He was threatened in 2008, after the 2 people who were going to enable Hillary to challenge Obama’s eligibility at the Dem Convention were killed within a 2-week timespan immediately before the Convention. The day after the 2nd helper (Stephanie Tubbs) died Hillary supporter Phil Berg filed a lawsuit against the DNC and Obama. They were still going to fight. When Chelsea’s life was threatened both Hill and Bill gave up the fight.
I have a lot of problems with both the Clintons; they’ve got enough blood on their hands to disqualify them from anything good, but they meant to challenge Obama and gave it up for their daughter’s sake. This according to sources close to the Clintons, as described by Bettina Viviano.
It also takes a Senate with any semblance of honor - which we haven’t had for a very, very long time.
But whatever this select committee is - does it have some legal teeth? Can it subpoena and get search warrants, for instance?
Rose Garden - September 12, 2012 - 10:43 A.M. EDT
excerpts. . .
The United States condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack.
And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.
Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts.
Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks.
And then last night, we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.
As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.
No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. Today we mourn four more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.
Question for the Day:
Do our sorry Congressional RINOs have the POLITICAL MOTIVATION to Impeach Benghazi Coward B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, a legal citizen of the sovereign Nation of Indonesia?”
Obama - September 12, 2012
Hmmm. Something like.
“Gentlemen, it is a pleasure to see you all again. I hope that the spot of excitement in Boston didn’t delay you from getting your tax returns are in and complete.
My first announcement is that thanks to the Affordable Care Act, the IRS has a multitude of agents ready to audit individual tax returns. They will be using the new ‘shock and awe’ technique where fifty agents will be assigned to each particular audit for 500 days of round the clock, ‘enhanced interrogation’. The IRS is looking for a few press volunteers to undergo and report on the new process. Please signify your willingness to be a test subject by raising your hand or speaking up at any time during the rest of the meeting.
Next, I will take questions on Benghazi. (silence) Anybody (extended silence).
Thank you very much, this concludes today’s press conference.”
Would a select committee be able to compel the deposition of military people that Pickering’s DOD put a gag order on? Could they subpoena and get search warrants?
Benghazi Coward B. Hussein Obama just now said at his presser that concerning the IRS Punitive Taxing Scandal, and the Benghazi Massacre Cover Up Scandal, that he would do the following:
- - - fix the system, and make sure that it never happens again. - - -
Why, this punishment bypass technique could be used for all crimes!
No more jail time for bank robbers, alien illegal invaders from Mexico, gang and terrorist shooters and bombers, violations of the US Constitution by elected Federal politicians, etc, etc!
We could close ALL of our jails if only the criminal would promise never to repeat the same crime!
Just make sure to FIX THE SYSTEM BY PASSING LAWS SO NOBODY GETS PUNISHED, AND THUS THE CRIME WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN!
This will truly be a Political Sideshow Cornerstone for The Obamanation!
Puzzle for the day: If Zipper Boy Clinton claims that it all depends on what ones definition of is is, then can our sorry RINOs prove that Benghazi Massacre Mastermind B. Hussein Obama assertion that there is no there there ?
ONLY through the unJustice department, IIRC. But the AG would be suicidal to block such requests. Doing so could get him impeached quickly and removed. Then a new one appointed by the pResident would have to go through Congressional approval ... BUT, IIRC, there is a Congressional act that functions just like a Justice department subpoena. I cannot recall what that summons is called, but it carries the weight of being jailed if the individual refuses to answer the summons.
Until the media makes an effort to be unbiased, these sorts of decpetions will contineu as natrually as fat Candy did hers so easily during the debate. She was covering for her little demigod barry don'tchaknow, so it was okay to 'shade the truth'.
There’s another interesting phrase in that transcript of Obama’s remarks from 9/12:
“I’ve also directed my administration to increase our security at diplomatic posts around the world.”
