Colin Powell admits to sending ´very
personal´ emails to a Romanian diplomat
but DENIES having an affair as
a hacker threatens to leak their intimate
messages

Daily Mail Online (UK), by Hayley Peterson

Original Article

Posted By:zephyrgirl, 8/1/2013 4:01:08 PM

Colin Powell has admitted to exchanging ´very personal´ emails with a Romanian diplomat but denies having an affair with the much younger woman after a hacker threatened to release their intimate messages. The 76-year-old retired general told the Smoking Gun that he met Corina Cretu, 45, roughly 10 years ago when she was working as an assistant to the president of Romania. She is now a member of the European Parliament. ´After I left the Department of State in January 2005 we stayed in touch via email,´ he told TSG.

He has probably asked Hillary for advice and is begging to be her Vice Presidential running mate.

Listen, just because he said I want to dip you in gravy and sop you up with a biscuit
does not mean he was having an affair.

Besides he is married and what would his wife say especially if he is Hillary´s running mate?

My advice is to ask Huma what she would do.

Colin Powell always put Colin Powell first...just ask the men who served with and for him. The most political of the political generals of the 80s and 90s. I wonder what Alma thinks of all this.

I don´t doubt for a moment this is all true...the bigger the ego, the louder the crash when they fall.

Remember Colin Powell knew the name of the leaker in the Valerie Plame affair...he just kept it to himself and let Scooter Libby swing in the wind. The leaker was Richard Armitage who worked for The Great Colin Powell. Just another RINO who thinks the rules don´t apply to him.

Oh, how I hope more comes out on Colin Powell. He knew that his buddy, Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, leaked Plame´s name and could have stopped the investigation. Instead, he let Scooter Libby hang for not having a perfect memory.

Let´s see how good Powell´s memory is now.

So... this is another Weiner-gate... ?

Who knew?

Maybe ColonPal was sleeping with Valerie Plame, too, btw... and...
Valerie´s pillow talk included the tidbit that she LOVED the photos and publicity...
and that her hubby Ambassador Joe Wilson was titillated by it all and the notoriety...
So ColonPal just let Scooter Libby dangle for a while, for Valerie´s amusement...
Ya think?

Oh, what a dangled web we Tweet...
When we first send pictures of our meat...

We knew this guy was dirt when he gave a 12 minute endorsement of Kommie O-Bomber on
a Meat The Press show in Fall 2008... now they could call it... "Press the Meat"

Obama has given him nothing and won´t. Powell probably thought he could get a cabinet post or equivalent from his endorsement.

#36. True about SOS. But he got that from Bush.

We all have to guess, I think Powell rather unilaterally endorsed O last year to curry favor and hoped to get a new position. Political Rehabilitation, so to speak.

But he is not trusted for good reasons. So neither party is going to give him anything of consequence.

As for the woman´s looks. It is how Powell saw her that mattered. She looks pleasant enough.

James Comey selected Patrick Fitzgerald as the special prosecutor to go after Karl Rove. Fitzgerald is the godfather of Comey´s children. Comey claimed no conflict of interest.

Fitzgerald learned from Colin Powell that Richard Armitage leaked the information to Robert Novak that Valerie Plame was a CIA agent. Powell and Armitage agreed, at Fitzgerald´s request, that they not tell anyone what they had told Fitzgerald.

So Fitzgerald went after the White House. Unable to get Rove, he went after Scooter Libby. He used Tim Russert and Matthew Cooper to convince jurors Libby obstructed his investigation. This had nothing to do with leaking Plame´s CIA status. It was a political prosecution.

So Powell must be getting some of what he really deserves. Not a patriot.

One day Comey and Fitzgerald will reap their own rewards.

It makes you wonder how many high profile men and women are sweating in their boots just waiting for the hammer to drop on them. This is pure speculation on my part, but maybe this is why we can´t get Boehner, along with many of his fellow Republicans, to get off their duffs and do something. It looks like they are going through the motions but are not really outraged by the overreach of this administration. Well, this would explain it.

A couple of mentions of wife Alma but we should all recall that Saint Alma didn´t want Powell to run because of the personal upheaval.

As it turns out, they had Clinton/Weiner/Edwards type skeletons in their closet that would certainly be exposed and she was as invested in Powell´s squeaky-clean image as he was.

As the old joke goes, we know what you are, we´re just negotiating price.

Powell was another affirmative action poster boy. When he was the Deputy commander of the 4th infantry Division his commander MG Hudachek rated Powell a poor leader and should not be given command of a division. What did the social engineers do promoted him to a corps commander. He failed at his only task during Desert Storm. And now this... A true liberal without any real accomplishments.

Colin Powell is now a private citizen. He should be be subject to this kind of revelation.


#45 has the pertinent point here: whoever controls the NSA can direct their data technicians to release any kind of information on any political appointee or private citizen that they wish to control. The person may be an upstanding person who merely wants to protect someone close to him/her. For instance, Mitch Daniels seems to be of very good character. However, his wife left him and then came back to him. What must be out there on his wife? She was not willing to undergo the public GYN exam that would come her way if he had run for president. What if your daughter had done some stupid teenager stuff and the NSA wanted to reveal all her emails, text messages, tweets, photos? And if you and your family members are clean as a whistle, who is to say that political dirty teams won´t just invent some stuff (with just enough truth in it to make it somewhat believable), put their names on it, and then encourage some hacker to leak it? Now they will have your medical records to tweak those and release those also, maybe not to show moral lapses, but to imply that you cannot handle the office for health reasons.

Powell is not an impressive man and is getting less impressive all the time.
Achieved officer rank through ROTC at a small time community college, was propelled through the ranks due to skin color and achieved his positions in Washington for the same reason. His identification of silver tubes on the ground in Iraq as missile components was a big factor in George Bush´s decision to go to war. He is just an earlier version of Obama-lite. The affair, when it is admitted, will be a fitting end to his career.

Powell has the reputation for being a Republican. This is simply an attempt to take some of the heat off of Weiner, Spitzer, Filner et al. It says - Look! Republicans do it too! Sort of black, sort of Republicans are perfect targets for the left. To them, Powell is a traitor to his race.

Any Republican caught in a sex scandal should immediately become a Democrat. It is the best possible protection. Apparently that is what Powell did.

Remember Bob Packwood (R) and Daniel Inouye (D) were both U.S. Senators, and both did the same creepy things, but Packwood paid the price but Inouye cruised on unnoticed.

Bottom line: Packwood should have immediately declared as a Democrat.

Thanks to above posters for reminding us of CP´s involvement in the Scooter Libby mess. We knew at the time, it was a witch hunt but didn´t find out it was two warlocks, Armitage and Powell who were at fault. Unfortunately, Libby might now be able to get his good name back.

As for this woman, she´s a freakin´ communist! What was he doing confiding anything to her? Were their e-mails tracked because of the Patriot Act and FISA court that tracked calls and correspondence where one end was to a foreigner? Or was NSA doing their job two years ago?

If you are a member of the 53% of the US population who actually pays income taxes, due today without a penalty, perhaps this chart from the Internal Revenue Service and analyzed by Mark J. Perry of AEIdeas will make you feel better. Or not. IRS data: The top 1% pay 37% of all taxes, the bottom half pay 2%, a blubbering David Letterman can’t believe the facts. IRS data for 2009 (most recent year available) are displayed above and show that the top 1% of US taxpayers (about 819,000 filers) paid 37% of all federal income taxes collected, the

Editorial: Chicago´s pension reckoning

If lawmakers in Springfield thought they maneuvered beyond the treacherous topic of pension reform with their December votes to begin rescuing the state´s floundering pension system, they thought wrong. Chicago, with its enormously underfunded pension plans, is next in line. Three years into his mayoral term — after campaigning on a promise to fix pensions — Rahm Emanuel finally is ready to file legislation that would reduce the city´s dangerously unfunded pension liabilities for municipal workers and laborers. Emanuel says he has a deal with those employees´ unions that would bring two of the city´s four funds for retirees closer

Denver - Denver is submitting its bid today to host the Republican National Convention in 2016. Denver hosted the Democratic National Convention in 2008 and the first presidential debate during the 2012 race. Colorado Republican party chairman Ryan Call told 7NEWS Friday that the key downtown venues were at the center of a plan to bring the 2016 RNC to Denver. Call says under the proposal, the Pepsi Center will serve as the principal event site -- hosting key speeches and the nominating process. He adds that Coors Field is the proposed site for a welcome reception. The Colorado Convention Center would also serve as

Memo to House GOP

Election Day is almost nine months off. But right now Republicans seem almost certain to hold the House of Representatives and are likely to take the Senate. Which raises the inevitable question: How might the GOP seize defeat from the jaws of victory? Two occasions stand out, two obvious obstacles ahead that could lead to disastrous Republican stumbles, two pitfalls on the path to a happy GOP Election Day. Republicans are pretty good at falling into such pits. One is the increase in the debt limit, which Congress will have to deal with in the next month or two. The other

Why the ‘Duck Dynasty’
Controversy Could Hurt Democrats

The left thinks everyone who opposes gay marriage is some bigot like Phil Robertson. That intolerance could come back to sting Democrats in November. Until very recently I had no idea who or what Duck Dynasty was. But now I, along with the rest of the English-speaking world, know far more about Duck Dynasty than I care to. But I am preparing myself for the reality that I will be hearing those two words endlessly over the course of the next year. Because unlike many media scandals that come and go after a 24 hour news cycle, I believe the Duck Dynasty controversy will have legs. Not only will the controversy linger, it might reignite the culture war that has traditionally hurt Democrats, especially

The 56-year-old news veteran had wanted to see out her vision for the series - but will announce a new interview show with Yahoo in the next few days. And despite the fact her eponymous show, Katie, enjoyed a five-week ratings high last month, a source confirmed her show is poised to end on ABC at the end of its second season.

Amendment 66, education tax has failed
The Denver Channel (7 News), by staff    Original Article
Posted By: zephyrgirl- 11/5/2013 10:20:30 PM     Post Reply
DENVER - Amendment 66, the K-12 education funding measure, has failed in Colorado. Even in Democratic strongholds of Boulder and Denver counties, the measure was failing or barely even. Amendment 66 constitutionally and statutorily would alter Colorado law to change how the state funds education. Firstly, it raises the state individual income tax rate from 4.63 percent to 5 percent on the first $75,000 of taxable income. That is equivalent to $472.5 if you earn exactly $75,000 in taxable income per year. If you earn more, any income beyond the $75,000 is taxed at a rate of 5.9 percent.

Some health insurance gets pricier as
Obamacare rolls out

Thousands of Californians are discovering what Obamacare will cost them — and many don´t like what they see. These middle-class consumers are staring at hefty increases on their insurance bills as the overhaul remakes the healthcare market. Their rates are rising in large part to help offset the higher costs of covering sicker, poorer people who have been shut out of the system for years. Although recent criticism of the healthcare law has focused on website glitches and early enrollment snags, experts say sharp price increases for individual policies have the greatest potential to erode public support for President Obama´s

Ayotte Balances Demands

Kelly Ayotte is no stranger to the difficult balancing act of politics. In the 2010 New Hampshire Senate primary, the Republican state attorney general trumpeted an endorsement from Sarah Palin to help her fend off a tough GOP challenger, who had attempted to outflank her on the right. Then Ayotte tracked closely enough to the center to blow out her Democratic opponent, U.S. Rep. Paul Hodes, by 23 percentage points in the general election. (In the process, she won all 10 of the state’s counties.) Once she arrived in Washington, it wasn’t long before Ayotte began being mentioned as a

Immigration overhaul legislation has been dormant in the House for months, but a few Republicans are working behind the scenes to advance it at a time the Capitol is immersed in a partisan brawl over government spending and President Barack Obama´s health care law. The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, has been discussing possible legal status for the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. He´s also been working with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a fellow Virginia Republican, on a bill offering citizenship to immigrants brought illegally

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.

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

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

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
