    When the FBI finally fires up its criminal investigation of the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups, there is one person the special agent in charge better be sure to interview — former White House Counsel Robert Bauer. The FBI may discover the whole IRS mess leads through the land of campaign finance “reform” and an obsession with speech regulation, an obsession shared by Bauer. Any criminal investigation identifies for further scrutiny those with motive, opportunity, and means, and Bauer deserves no quarter from FBI investigators on those three counts. The Crimes Without any doubt, crimes were committed by IRS...

    The Benghazi bleed is draining Obama and Democrats, with the consequence yet to be seen. If he loses, it will be one reason why; if he wins, he will run into a headwind of investigations and inquiries that will get his second term off to an ugly beginning. Either way, it has put an end for the time being at least to the Democrats' latest effort to dig themselves out of the foreign policy hole they dug themselves into in the late l960s, and from which they have yet to emerge. They tried with Jimmy Carter, ex-career naval officer (and...

    As you know, a Tunisian man was seen on the Consulate videotape the day of the attack.  He was arrested a short time later in Turkey at their airport as he tried to pass through with false documents.  The Turkish authorities turned the man over to Tunisia (not the USA for questioning) and the Tunisian government has not let our FBI interview him.  The US has not explained why they could not get access to interview this man.   About 3 nights ago, Senator Lindsey Graham learned of the foregoing and was outraged that we had not interviewed this man....

    There are some large disconnects between Obama administration explanations concerning security and response actions taken before, during and after the disastrous terrorist attacks on our Benghazi consulate and accounts,compared with those which continue to emerge from outside sources. Following numerous White House claims now known to be inaccurate and intentionally misleading,we are repeatedly assured that we will get the real scoop in due time after full investigations are complete. One perplexing issue,among many, evolves around conflicting accounts regarding requests and denials of military aid which might have saved American lives.Further delays only increase wide-spread suspicions that there are no legitimate...

    Washington Times ^ | October 28, 2012 | Joseph Curl, covered the White House and politics for a decade for The Washington Times
    You know who doesn’t like getting thrown under the bus? The CIA. You know what the CIA does when you try to throw it under the bus? They get even — quickly, quietly, and with fatal consequences. That seems the most logical explanation for the torrent of information pouring out this week (unless Hillary Rodham Clinton — also thrown under the bus by President Obama — is scrapping any chance of ever running for president again and is simply setting the whole administration on fire, along with her legacy as secretary of state). The main lesson from Watergate (after the...

    President Obama’s once seemingly unstoppable march toward re-election hit what he might call “bumps in the road” in Benghazi, Libya, late on Sept. 11, 2012. It might be more accurate to describe the effect of the well-planned and -executed, military-style attack on a diplomatic facility there as the political equivalent of a devastating improvised explosive device on the myth of the unassailability of the Obama record as commander in chief. Thanks to intrepid investigative reporting — notably by Bret Baier and Catherine Herridge at Fox News, Aaron Klein at and Clare Lopez at — and information developed by...

    Sensing a moment of political vulnerability on national security, Republicans pounced Friday on disclosures that President Obama's administration could have known early on that militants, not angry protesters, launched the deadly attack on U.S. diplomats in Libya. Within 24 hours of the Sept. 11 attack, the CIA station chief in Libya reported to Washington that there were eyewitness reports that it was carried out by militants, officials said. But for days, the Obama administration blamed it on an out-of-control demonstration over a video made in America ridiculing Islam's prophet Muhammad. Paul Ryan, the Republican vice presidential nominee, led Friday's charge....

    As the presidential debate on foreign policy is coming shortly, this is my current file of stories on "Benghazi-gate".  Apparently it is a riddle, wrapped in an enigma.  Competing theories range from simple incompetence to a planned October surprise gone wrong.  In any event, there has been a coverup, aided and abetted by those in the media loyal to the President to run interference.  The coming debate will be interesting and historic as this scandal now has the nation's attention.  It helps to have the information at your finger tips.  So, for you entertainment pleasure, here is the file: Benghazi-Gate. Benghazi-Gate10/19/2012Oversight...

    Hillary Clinton’s State Department stonewalls a victim’s mother, while tossing the White House under the bus. But is the press giving Libya big enough play? The jaw-dropping testimony at the House Oversight Committee Wednesday completely shredded the Obama Administration’s original story about what happened in Benghazi, while offering damning evidence that the State Department ignored multiple, urgent requests for better security at the American outpost in eastern Libya. “It was abundantly clear we were not going to get resources until the aftermath of an incident,” said Eric Nordstrom, a former Regional Security Office at the U.S. Embassasy in Libya,. “How...

    The size and "lethality" of the attack on the U.S. consulate compound in Benghazi, Libya, that left Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead was "unprecedented," a senior State Department official said today. Senior State Department officials today gave the most detailed account to-date of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other diplomats. One official said the nature of the assault was unparalleled in recent history. "The lethality and number of armed people is unprecedented," one of the officials said. "There was no attack anywhere in Libya...
  • Carney dodges question about Obama's college transcripts.

    White House press secretary Jay Carney is asked why President Obama hasn't released his college transcripts. Carney dodges the question and tells the reporter, Ed Henry of FOX News, to ask the campaign. Carney then talks about candidates and releasing their tax returns. Ed Henry, FOX News: "I don't know how many years, maybe you do, George Romney released of his college transcripts, but Republicans like to complain that the President has not released his college transcripts. What is the stated reason for that?" Jay Carney, White House: "I would refer you to the campaign. "I think we've answered this...

    Judicial Watch ^ | 05/21/2010
    Claiming that there are too many files to sort through, Clinton Library officials won’t provide the Senate Judiciary Committee with crucial information on Elena Kagan’s work in the administration in time for her confirmation hearings. The committee, which considers judicial nominations, requested that the Supreme Court nominee’s records be furnished before the start of her June 28 confirmation hearings. The information is especially important because Kagan has no judicial experience and therefore no paper trail of legal opinions. That essentially makes her Clinton Administration work her most important, and perhaps revealing, to date. Kagan was a top White House counsel...

    BOSTON -- Amy Bishop's intelligence was never debatable. Even as a child, she didn't hesitate to tell people when they were wrong. As she grew older, earned a Harvard Ph.D and claimed a genius IQ of 180, her brilliance could come with a bluntness, condescension and volatile self-righteousness. It was all on display in 2002 when she yelled, "I am Dr. Amy Bishop!" as she belted a woman at a Massachusetts restaurant in a fight over a child's booster seat. Eight years later, the neurobiologist was denied tenure at an Alabama university, a failure her husband and her attorney said...

    Has Obama asked beleaguered and unpopular NY Governor David Paterson to drop out of the race to keep his seat? That's what the New York Times is reporting. If true, this is fairly extraordinary. It's highly unusual for a president to step in and tell a governor who is not facing something like a crippling scandal or imminent indictment that his time is up. And when it's the first black president telling one of only two black governors to clear the way for someone else...that definitely falls into the category of Stories You Never Expected To Read.

    Gerald Walpin, the former AmeriCorps inspector general who was fired after appearing confused at a meeting, has some pretty important friends coming to his defense. Some 145 of them, including political foes, have written Congress and the White House to refute attacks on his integrity in the controversy over why he was fired by the Obama administration. "We have never seen Mr. Walpin to be 'confused, disoriented, [or] unable to answer questions,' " wrote the 145, who include former federal judges and even Democrats like Bernie Nussbaum, former President Clinton's first White House counsel. Walpin was a Bush pick who,...
