Republicans always hated the press. The press tells the truth and truth is the anathema to Republican politics.
So when the Democrats after the War on Terror was over. proposed to curtail some of the stringent powers which the Federal Government held over the press, the Republicans naturally refused. ”We can’t have that”, they screamed. ”National Security.” What they were truly concerned about was their own political security. A press that was not intimidated by them, could do their party harm…
The Democrats countered with this: … ‘but when it’s a Democratic President who is intimidating a Republican Press, you’ll come to your senses then”….
Lindsey Graham, the Republican icon from South Carolina, is proposing that we now pass the law he was previously against…. It protects journalists from being investigated…. For you see, now Fox news was investigated, in his mind that changes things.
Our press, for better or worse, is a big part of the people’s hold over their government. A press needs to be free to publish what it will, and let then public debate determine whether or not it has merit. For example. All three of these current scandals do not involve illegality. All three were accomplished completely within the law. It is because we have the press, we can know this.
At first one side publishes the accusations. This person is guilty their headlines scream, and to a point when only one side is allowed to offer up arguments, it sort of does look like that person is guilty… But then the other side dug up stuff too. What they found were only the current accusations, with nothing substantial to back them. Simple posturing, finger pointing, and nothing else. No crimes were committed. In fact, all the alleged activities were sanctioned by law. If one didn’t do what one was accused of, one could have gone to jail for probably breaking the existing law…..
It is just that now that Republicans aren’t the ones in power, they don’t like the actual existing law, Even though it was them, who passed and enforced it back when they held the White House and both branches of Congress, even over the democrat’s vocal opposition..
So, now that the Democratic prediction has come true, Republicans are coming on board.
And if it protects the press and allows them to print the news, America ultimately in the end, prospers. And that is a good thing….
So if you see a republican walking down the street, laugh hysterically at their stupidness, pettiness, and inability to think outside their box… Roll on the sidewalk clutching your sides, point at them the whole times… Get your friends to do the same…..
Then thank them, for finally coming to their senses, realizing Democrats were right all along, and jumping on the bandwagon of Democratic policy, to do their part and help make America a much better place….
It is a crime when individuals are found tamping with evidence. Tampering may include a manipulation or movement of the evidence during or after the crime. Individuals can in fact be charged with being an accessory after the fact, if they manipulated evidence in any way.
Did a crime occur in the Republican caucus surrounding Darrell Issa.
ABSOLUTELY. Evidence was tampered…..
CBS News reported that at least two of the Benghazi e-mails that were leaked by Republicans last Friday were altered.
One of the altered e-mails was from Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes. The other altered e-mail was from U.S. State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.
Here’s the Republican version of the Rhodes e-mail: We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation.
Here’s the White House version of the Rhodes e-mail: We need to resolve this in a way that respects all of the relevant equities, particularly the investigation.
Here’s the Republican version of the Nuland e-mail: The penultimate point is a paragraph talking about all the previous warnings provided by the Agency (CIA) about al-Qaeda’s presence and activities of al-Qaeda.
Here’s the White House version of the Nuland e-mail: The penultimate point could be abused by members to beat the State Department for not paying attention to Agency warnings.
Evidence was tampered to imply a crime. Under all state codes this can be either a misdemeanor or a felony. We need these investigated… The law was broken. Congressional Hearings are in place to get to the bottom of the truth. They are not intended to be kangeroo courts to make up evidence that doesn’t naturally exist….
The law was broken. Arrests need to be made… This is not about Democrats or Republicans… This is about the trust and truthfulness of the United States of America.
If Congress were run as were DC’s Schools? Darrell Issa would be thrown out of Congress…. From the DC school manual…….
Tier IV behaviors result in off-site Suspension.
(a) The following behaviors shall be considered Tier IV behaviors:
(1) Acts of vandalism, destruction of property, or graffiti (tagging);
(2) Documented theft of school or personal property without force;
(3) Interfering with school authorities or participating in a major
disruption of the school’s operation.
(4) Tampering with, changing, or altering an official record or
document of a school;
Here is the Texas’s definition of tampering. Darrell Issa would be in jail if this took place in Texas….
A person commits an offense if, knowing that an investigation or official proceeding is pending or in progress, he:
(1) alters, destroys, or conceals any record, document, or thing with intent to impair its verity, legibility, or availability as evidence in the investigation or official proceeding;
(2) makes, presents, or uses any record, document, or thing with knowledge of its falsity and with intent to affect the course or outcome of the investigation or official proceeding;
(3) knowing that an offense has been committed, alters, destroys, or conceals any record, document, or thing with intent to impair its verity, legibility, or availability as evidence in any subsequent investigation of or official proceeding related to the offense; or
(4) observes a human corpse under circumstances in which a reasonable person would believe that an offense had been committed, knows or reasonably should know that a law enforcement agency is not aware of the existence of or location of the corpse, and fails to report the existence of and location of the corpse to a law enforcement agency.
In Texas, this is a felony in the third degree.
The evidence brought forth a week ago that inflamed the nation, was a fabrication. “Directly it was an attempt to make, present and use a record, document, or thing with knowledge of its falsity and with intent to affect the course or outcome of the investigation or official proceeding….”
18 USC § 1001 – Statements or entries generally
(a) Except as otherwise provided in this section, whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully—
(1) falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device a material fact;
(2) makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or representation; or
(3) makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry;
shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both. If the matter relates to an offense under chapter 109A, 109B, 110, or 117, or section 1591, then the term of imprisonment imposed under this section shall be not more than 8 years.
In their quest to call it terrorism –and it is– the republicans just opened themselves up to a crime.
I demand an immediate arrest of Darrell Issa for breaking the law…. Full Censure by the House of Representative of this common criminal is called for immediately…..
Republicans took an email from the White House, restructured it, and gave it to ABC News which published a breaking story that 12 revisions had been made to the Benghazi talking points.
Is it illegal to do that?
Wouldn’t that fit under the definition of libel? Or is it legal under the Fox Doctrine that says if you are not news but entertainment, you can say or do anything you wish?
That study caused the leading Republican Hispanic in charge of the Florida’s outreach to Spanish speaking American citizens, to switch parties. He is now a Democrat. And he was in charge of convincing Hispanics to vote Republican!!!…
What caused the shift? A Republican study that specifically was aimed at the redneck hillbillies inside the Republican Party, but wound up hitting mainstream. The undeniable truth is it this what the Republican Party really does think about what it calls behind closed doors, it’s dirty little problem….
“No one knows whether Hispanics will ever reach IQ parity with whites, but the prediction that new Hispanic immigrants will have low-IQ children and grandchildren is difficult to argue against.”
So says the Republican Party of the United States of America.
Proving once again… that this party is nothing but the harshest racists..(Just watch Rick Jensen try to defend it by saying “he” is not a racist.) Truth is… he isn’t. He’s actually a great guy.. But the party he supports (though he does not represent) is undeniably racist…
A fact so driven home that the single most important Republican in charge of Florida’s Hispanics, NOT ONLY FELT COMPELLED TO RESIGN… BUT FELT IT NECESSARY TO ACTUALLY SWITCH PARTIES PUBLICLY….
Is every Republican a racist? No. But every racist is a Republican and the Republican Party of the United States of America is beholden to do whatever those racists want! ABSOLUTELY!!!
Every Hispanic Republican out of self respect, NEEDS RIGHT NOW TO CHANGE THEIR PARTY.... There can be no such thing as a Hispanic Republican from now on. Just Spanish speaking Uncle Toms… who should appropriately hitherto be called…. La Malinches
A. You tell me! Should it be illegal to walk into Dover Mall with a gun and pop in a 30 round clip?
Yes, it should. Vote for HB 58…
B. You tell me! Should it be perfectly legal to have a gun with a 30 round clip on a shooting range where it won’t hurt anyone?
Yes, it should. Vote for HB 58…
C. You tell me! Should it be perfectly legal to have a gun with a 30 round clip in ones home, as protection against forced entry?
Yes, it should. Vote for HB 58…
The only reason a misguide legislator could ever find to vote AGAINST .. HB 58, would be if he wished… TO SEE PEOPLE DIE! This law protects gun owners and changes nothing for anyone owning a clip over 10 rounds.. However this new law will make high capacity clips illegal in public places other than a shooting range… That is a very good idea. Genius in fact.
OH SHUT UP YOU STUPID OLD FARTS!
Since the rampage at Connecticut, less than five months later — this list includes 137 accidental shootings, 57 of which were fatal. These children and teens were accidentally shot by themselves, by parents, siblings, relatives, friends, neighbors, and caregivers. In other words, these shootings were not by strangers. Many of the guns used in these shootings were obtained by family members for personal protection.
Isn’t that far more important? 137 accidental shootings because we can’t responsibly handle weapons of mass destruction?
137/ 57 fatal Guns in the US are the log in our eye. Meanwhile we try to take splinters out of the eyes of others!
And we’re wasting yet another day of Congress to rehash what the last 17 hearings on the same topic have dug up? One that killed just 4 Americans in a terrorist ambush, something of which we have no control over? And we want to get down to the bottom of who is to blame? But 137 actual shootings occur, and these same people drink champagne and eat caviar while whooping and rejoicing that background checks got defeated?
We have got to rid ourselves of these outdated farting Republicans, either one way or another….. Maybe give them some Beano. For heavens sake, let’s get our nation’s priorities in order.

Just look at North Carolina. In 2010 both houses went Republican. But they still had a Democratic Governor to keep them in check. That check was erased last November. Today with a Republican Governor, and super-majorities in both houses, North Carolina is a model for what would have happened if Romney had won the Presidency and the Senate become Republican…. Unchecked power. Basically a Tea Party’s wish list…..
So far, these changes have already done in North Carolina…..
A. Parents and families seeking Federal Assistance must first take a drug test, which they must first pay costing $100. That money is then used to help fund the benefits for those… who passed….
B. Passed a bill requiring photo identification at the polls.
C. Personal and Corporate Tax Cuts
D. Restrictions on Abortion
E. Cuts to Education Funding
F. Increasing out-of-state tuition for state schools.
G. Ending the public funding of Judicial elections.
H Devastating rollbacks of environmental legislation
I. Blocked the expansion of Medicaid under Obama’s Health Care Act.
This has happened in a few short months. The bills are instantly brought up for a vote, discussion is waived, and the vote is taken… It is always partisan with those representing good government, always losing.
This is what the rest of the nation avoided this past November…
The background check, which would have prevented a lot of killers from getting guns, actually passed by a majority vote in the Senate. 54- 46….
Unfortunately Republicans (who if they had soul it would be owned by the NRA), instead invoked a 60 count vote. Remember the Kuwait War? That was supported by a vote of 52-47… More Senators support background checks than voted to go to war against Saddam Hussein the first time…. And we went to war.
So even though a majority of Senators were overwhelmingly in favor as is over 90% of Americans for making it harder for murderers to acquire guns, Republicans forced the bill to fail, so every criminal can now get guns far more easier than before….
Republicans voted for criminals.. Democrats are against them…
Every Republican who is against background checks needs punched in the face… Just without warning, say “damn you” and try to pop their nose…
Now, now, now… Don’t do it in anger… Do it because you love them. You are popping some sense into them, nothing more…
One of these days they will thank you for it….
“Oh, man, I don’t know what was wrong with me… I was like in a trance. Right was wrong, Wrong was right, It was like I was hypnotized, like I’d been drugged, I had to support hardened criminals even though I really, really, deep down knew it was wrong against God, Country, and my fellow citizens….
Thank you so much friend, for popping me back to reality….”
Seriously, if I were as messed up as these knuckleheads, who think kids of Newtown are nothing but collateral damage for their right to shoot whomever they wish, …. i would want punched in the head as well…
So do them a favor. If you see a Republican who supports gun rights, make their lip bleed; it’s their answer to a prayer….. Since you can’t beat them up in social media, just pile on. If every time they crow, hundreds to thousands of people call them out, it is almost as good as getting punched in the face. I know a lot of us hate to be negative in social media. But this is for Citizens and Country, damn it. You have to call out 2nd Amendment Rightists for what they are: aiders and abettors of criminal activity….
Trust me, as soon as they wake up, you’ll be their new best friend….. <3
