The Benghazi Report: How smoothly
Washington washes away its scandals

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

You´ll be able to hear and read today about the State Department report on the Benghazi consulate sacking and killings. But no matter how much you listen or read, you´ll only be getting part of the story. Here´s why: The report from the Accountability Review Board is only one tiny piece of a vast bureaucratic ballet that´s evolved in Washington over decades to handle hot issues, even deadly ones like Benghazi, with minimal damage to the politicians and bureaucrats in power at the time. It´s an amazingly sophisticated and bipartisan procedure that looks sound to naive eyes.

Replace "Washington" with "Democrats" and you have a more accurate headline.

Fast and Furious
Solyandra
Egypt
Syria
Withdrawal from Iraq
Petreaous
Libya
Benghazi
Iran

It goes own and own and own...

No. Washington washes away SOME of the scandals, and we all know which ones. The passing of Judge Bork is a fine example. That learned man was attacked for no reason, slandered and lied about with no repercussions for the liberals. The Dems can and always will do whatever they want. Judge Bork would have been an amazing Supreme Court Justice.

This country is changing, and not for the better. I´m very sad about this and don´t see it getting better in the near term.

I find it questionable as to why Mrs. Clinton did not go to the hospital for her concussion. Said she was treated at home. Do they have all the medical testing equipment and e-ray equipment in their home?
Anyway it worked out well for her not to have to testify now that we know that no one was responsible for what happened in Benghazi.

The pols in washington have proven themselves incapable, incompetent, and untrustworthy. Our government is becoming a charade, motivated by greed and fueled by unaccountability.

Re: #2 Good comment. Good list

And it is indeed the Democrats that "own and own and own" these scandals.

Yes there is systemic problems, but isn´t why Managers are put in place? Don´t forget, Hillary is one of the most brilliant leaders have! Why didn´t she see these issues?

Also, what do you say about the Ambassador crying out for protection for the impending assault? How can you not cite current State officers for ignoring this?

´No discipline this time, but boy, if it ever happens again, there will be hell to pay.´ Whitewash.

Wuncha think that someone in the administration would be minimally embarrassed? High level government employees: Look to your left and to your right and see if there is anyone raising his hand.

While you are at it, make a note to self to pay your back taxes. We´d appreciate it.

The only difference between this outfit and dog-doo is that the latter can be picked up with a shovel and discarded.

I’m Senator Lamar Alexander. Have you ever read something so obviously right that it made you wish you’d written it? That happened to me the other day reading Newt Gingrich’s book ‘Breakout.’ Newt was quoting technology expert Tim O’Reilly, who was talking about the way the government should operate in the internet age. O’Reilly was saying this: “The best way for government to operate is to figure out what kinds of things are enablers of society and then make investments in those things. The same way that Apple figured out, ‘If we turn the iPhone into a platform, outside developers will bring hundreds of thousands of applications to the

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Tensions continued to mount over Ukraine Tuesday as that nation´s military engaged rebel insurgents in the east and Russian leaders refused to recognize the Kiev leadership as legitimate, blaming it for the growing instability. An estimated 50,000 Russian troops remain massed on Ukraine´s borders as uniformed intimidation. In the adjacent Black Sea, a Russian military jet buzzed American naval ships, the high-seas equivalent of a drive-by middle finger.

Inside the Bundy Ranch standoff:
The stakes go far beyond cattle

It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t. And it comes in an uncertain economic time when so many have given up big dreams just to keep what

Fallon: Top movie this weekend was ‘Captain America.’ Earned $303 million worldwide. In other words, Captain America has more money than regular America.

The impending death of Archie
and the sad afterlives of iconic comics
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article
Posted By: SurferLad- 4/13/2014 9:20:47 AM     Post Reply
Hate to break the news to you, but our old pal Archie Andrews is doomed. After 73 years of not looking a day over 17, the long-running all-American symbol of wholesomeness and teen goodness is set to die in July, according to Archie Comics. He´ll go out good, saving someone. Which is swell. But is this really necessary in a soiled age of cynicism, non-heroes and non-role models, lying leaders and downright criminals? It's already hard enough being a parent with all the unwholesome temptations at hand. Must we inevitably give up every enduring symbol of hope and good and fun for a one-month publicity splash?

White House blames fox for
destroying Michelle’s garden

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
