Turns down... sounds more like the coverup has begun, and a Congressional subpoena is in order here.

`It´s even more laughable now that will ever get the truth on this situation. Call Petraeus as a hostile witness.

An "invitation" ? What is going on here ?

This is serious business. A subpoena should be issued for EVERY witness. Quit fooling around. Put it THIS WAY....even Obama deserves justice. Let´s get to the truth. We wouldn´t want people doubting our President now would we. Let´s help him out. Get to the truth and quit being candy asses about it.

Ok Issa. Let´s get tough here. Forget invitations. Subpoena the whole lot. Petraeus, Clinton, Clapper, Mueller. Here´s my theory. Last Spring Petraeus was asking for more security in Benghazi. The administration said No. It didn´t fit in their plan that Al Queda was on the run. Petraeus was a problem. He was unhappy and thinking of running against Obama.The administration illegally put the FBI on it. They have no authority to read emails in the intelligence community. They hit pay dirt. Instead of removing Petraeus for such a gross breach of security, he was blackmailed. Shut up or else. No way would this be disclosed before the election. The President, VP, Clapper and Mueller and Clinton all knew about the affair and that is treasonous and a conspiracy against the United States. All should be arrested. Petraeus had a crisis of conscience- too late. He disclosed the affair himself and resigned. No more leverage against him. He and all the players must be called to testify. The Presidential succession-President, VP Speaker of the House ends up with John Boehner as President. I´ll take it. This is a high crime by this administration against the security of our country. Clearly Clinton knows something and thus refuses to testify under oath. What a disgrace at the highest levels. We need to take out this corrupt administration -now.

The State´s Electors meet in Washington in December to cast ballots and are NOT bound by the states popular vote.

Folks like Issa have a very short amount of time.

I´ll BET she has refused---can´t Hillary be compelled with a subpoena? God forbid her ineptitude colors her upcoming Presidential bid!!!!!!! (Bill alone, obviously pumping fore her in 2016, should disqualify her: e.g. trusting Romney, a "liar" as designated by our Ex President, who was impeached for lying, and lost his law license.

Oh my gosh, #10 is right! Constitutional Scholar Barry forgot that little detail. A ray of hope for sanity.

Even if the possibility exists that swing state electors could vote down Barry, the media has already taken victory laps.

As for Hillary, I can´t even remember which scandal she was involved in where she testified under oath that she did not "recall". Even that scandal and her lies didn´t stop Noo Yawkkas from electing her their Senatah.

Could someone explain to me how the people directly involved in this thing can just opt out of testifying? I don´t care if they both resign. By the time the hearings start, Karl Rove and Laura Bush will be hauled in to give the answers. I mean it. This is murder and these witnesses should be forced to testify.

Let´s walk backwards through our memories....

Hillary Clinton has already let it be known that she won´t continue as SoS in Obama Reign #2. I did a search on ´´Clinton Resign´´ but too many results come up - wasn´t that announcement last summer?

Petraeus was named Director of CIA on September 6, 2011. (Hmmm.....)

There are many dots to be connected here - I don´t have all the info I need right now but perhaps others can pick up.

I´m still not convinced that Obama´s whispered comment to Medvedev isn´t part of this. Petraeus is in a very precarious position.

And as for Hillary and her ´´turn down´´ of the ´´invitation´´.... well, she does not need any more time to rehearse her responses - ´I don´t recall´ and ´I don´t remember´. However, she might need more time to practice saying, ´I´m sorry, I don´t recall´.

As if.

1. Petraeus abandoned his enlarged force in Afghanistan to double dip: retired 4 star pension + CIA director salary.
2. Obama then arranges for Mrs Petraeus to be hired for newly created senior position in new Consumer Finance Unit of Dodd-Frank. Job keeps Petraeus silent as Iraq and Afghanistan successes erode.
3. As Afghan war effort deteriorates and al-Qaeda surges in ME and Libya, Petraeus grows concerned. Obama turns up affair to keep him loyal.
4. Petraeus creates violent demonstration & video lie to allow Obama to lie about growing al-Qaeda threat.
5. Petraeus resigns to protect whatever honor he has left.

Hillary should not have the option to "turn down" the request to testify. What is wrong with these people? Isn´t anyone being held accountable? If Hillary has nothing to hide, she needs to testify. Hillary has gone public saying she takes full responsibility, well, lady tell us what you know. These people make me sick. The Republicans are now making me mad, as they just roll over. For God´s sake, the democrats had Scooter Libby put in prison for nothing, and we Republicans can´t get accountability when four brave Americans were sent in to do a job, they asked for help, and Hillary and 0bama denied them any help at all, and these four brave Americans are dead. I want Hillary to tell us exactly what happened, and I am afraid no one is going to make her do it. Sick, I tell you.

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant.

Pollen count in the Northeast will soar to “high levels” Saturday and Sunday, when warm temperatures will prompt plants to create the sniffle-inducing substance, reports Pollen.com, which offers allergy “forecasts.” In New York City, where the temps could hit 70 degrees Saturday, allergy symptoms will “become more severe,” the site says.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

His other executive action will require federal contractors to submit data to the government about their employees compensation by sex and race.

Fears that high-speed traders have been rigging the U.S. stock market went mainstream last week thanks to allegations in a book by financial author Michael Lewis, but there may be a more serious threat to investors: the increasing amount of trading that happens outside of exchanges.Some former regulators and academics say so much trading is now happening away from exchanges that publicly quoted prices for stocks on exchanges may no longer properly reflect where the market is.

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

The author of the Twilight of Abundance, David Archibald, sent an email a few days ago, saying “there is a whole new world coming.” Archibald, who’s an Australian, warns in his book that the world is running out of food, energy and security. Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

Clinton docs: Lewinsky,
speechwriting and race
Pollitico, by Josh Gerstein    Original Article

The Clinton Library took the wraps off another batch of White House documents Friday afternoon, offering new insights into how aides scrambled to address the Monica Lewinsky scandal, how the hot-button issue of race tied the White House staff up in knots and how former President Bill Clinton cast a wide net for advice in advance of his major speeches.The new set of Clinton documents make little mention of then-first lady Hillary Clinton, and so are unlikely to have a major political impact. However, many of the memos were written by or mention aides to Bill Clinton who now hold

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
