In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu
Powell is an ingrate to the republican party and looks for excuses to disavow them. Plus he loves his invitations to the cocktail circuits.I´m sure he doesn´t have a problem with Obama gutting the military.

Who else had access to those emails? Well, who monitors all emails? What a coincidence, Petraeus, too. The vulnerable generals. Who else is vulnerable? Any Supreme Court Justices? Speakers of the House?
Finally. The rest of the United States gets to see the same Colin Powell the Army has observed for many years. The faithless Powell serves Colin, first and always.
Many, many retired Colonels are reading this and smiling this morning. They always knew "what goes around, comes around." Said Colonels just thought they would never get to see it happen so brilliantly to the Great Colin Powell. Hehehe.
I admit there is nothing quite as satisfying as getting the truth - or confirmation of the truth - even months or years after the fact.
Powell´s wife was portrayed as Saint Alma for not wanting to go through a bruising campaign fight. Now we know that she knew - her husband was playing away....another ´diplomat´ risking extortion or worse.
So the great Gen. Powell who was a C student who made it to the top through Affirmative Action has been caught with his pants down. LOL! He proved his loyalty to the Republican Party by voting for Obama. He proved his loyalty to America by having an affair with a Socialist. He sounds like a Democrat to me.
Powell, just like Obama, promoted way above his abilities. Powell, whose parents emigrated to the US from jamaica, and like Obama, no historical legacy of American slavery, sure has benefitted from the color of his skin.
I will say this for the asshat, he did have sense enough not to run knowing this would come out. That would have just given the msm more ways to smear Pubs as being sleazy. Powell, as can now be confirmed, is much closer to being a democrat. Stupid, too, as is true of every single person who voted for Zero.
Colin Powell (His Toadship) has that arrogant, condescending demeanor and speaks with an air of importance. For years and years it´s been apparent he needs to "be seen" at all the right parties and functions. Powell craves being admired, worshipped and looked up to. Who´s he kidding? Not many now, thankfully.
So it´s safe to say that Colin Powell was probably the one in the throes of an "identity crisis."
There is no "identity crisis"; he is a moral cretin and a reprobate. We should follow our gut instincts: The tipoff was when Republican Powell voted for Obama. There was nothing more we needed to know about Powell after that.
One thing I know for sure. This beautiful ´communist sympathizer´ was not in love with Powell. Give me a break. She infiltrated our state dept. Our Secretary of State! He didn´t get that beautiful stuff for free. He didn´t just betray his wife, he betrayed America. Who was the genius that appointed this cad to such a high position? And who appointed Roberts as well to the SCOTUS?
Geez, what is it with the General Staff of our Armed Forces? Every time a general is PR´d into a demigod, it later turns out that he was reveling in conduct unbecoming. Powell is just the latest to be outed over the past year or so.
As for Powell´s being unfaithful to the GOP, it has long been obvious that this was a one-sided relattionship, and the only real allegiance Powell had was to his own ambition.
#26 BINGO JACK! It wasn´t his good looks or suave manner that bagged the communist spy. Powell is a traitor and a liar about the involvement of Armitage leaking when Scotter Libby went down. It looks like those Army generals have a problem keeping their missles in the silo.
The Romanian Chickie-pie may be on to big bucks. She has her side of the story to tell- she was dumped after giving him the best years of her life slaving over a keyboard.
I found the man weak back in the days of the first Iraq war when we could have gone in further and finished off the enemy. Later, he acted like he was doing George Bush the second a favor by being Secretary of State.
I do think the administration had the goods on him along with Petraeaus, and do not doubt, on Justice Roberts as well. Someone mentioned The Speaker? Could be.
If only...if only the "powers that be" had heeded the advice of the late General John W. Hudachek, West Point Class of 1954, Powell´s old commanding officer at Fort Carson, Colorado´s 4th Infantry Division (Mechanized) back in the early 1980s.
Past time for lots of "dark secrets" to be unveiled. Not that I am interested in secrets, but I am very interested in the blackmail machine that is destroying our country with it´s use of arm wrenching to secure support for the Marxist/communist regime now in place.
I can easily picture ValJar and Axelclod as the two-headed beast that uses blackmail to secure support for their hideous agenda.
What do they have on Chief Justice Roberts? something of a family nature? With John Boehner, it could be a hill of corruption.
Still, why would we trust our freedom and liberty to those who are easily blackmailed due to their lack of judgment, or desire to secure power over the penchant to be moral?
You would think that a guy who was an officer in the military during the Cold War years would have a sort of died-in-the-wool reluctance to go on Facebook or to be so careless with e-mail correspondence -
he would have certainly been considered a security risk during the Cold War if he had conducted himself in this manner -
#35, I believe you´ve hit the nail on the head. I´m sure there is a very fat file squirreled away somewhere just full of nasty shakedown material on any number of people in high places. They wait for the opportune moment to use the dirt to apply pressure on these individuals, as needed. http://tinyurl.com/lu2a9m2
...democrat porn king larry flint has been paying big money for more than 10 years for filth on republicans...nobody cares that democrats are immoral criminals...and I say the majority of all rinos betraying the United States of America right now...like powell... are being blackmailed...supreme john roberts is another likely "victim".
Those throwing mud at Powell are suffering from myopia...there are many examples of the powerful playing...Paul Wolfowitz, a leading neoconservative, Deputy Secretary of Defense under Rumsfeld, had to resign as President of the World Bank when it was discovered he engineered a high paying gig for his long term companion at the WB who previously worked Liz Cheney at State...his girlfriend has a Libyan-Turkish father and Syrian-Saudi mother, not unlike the Weiner/Huma relationship...
Reminds me of Clinton´s protest, "I did not have sex with that woman"! Yeah, sure. Powell´s support of obama should not have been a surprise to anyone-----with blacks, race trumps everything else. Why do you think 95% of them voted for an inexperienced, unqualified, unknown hack for president? Solely because he is black. The other 5% were too senile, hung-over or illiterate to mark the ballot correctly. Powell owes his entire latter career to white republicans and yet he shows his ____a__ to those that helped him and very publically supports an incompetent socialist only because he is black. With this kind of judgment, this guy shouldn´t have been leading a platoon much less an army. That´s affirmative action for you.
I think that conservatives should respect people´s privacy. We´re not all asexual drones. Don´t most of us have some correspondence somewhere in our past that we would not like to be made public? This thing is about a flirtatious friendship (or maybe an affair) between two adults, and is nothing at all like Weiner´s perverted exhibitionism.
I totally agree with Posters. I said, right after the story on Powell, that this was a shot across the bow. Petreaus and Powell were no longer useful idiots to the administration. They had been used to full advantage. They were used as an example to other imbedded, vulnerable politicians.
But, the WARNING to other Republican decision makers is clear: "You step out of line, and YOU will be ruined."
I have the same suspects who act out of character. Boehner, Roberts, Graham, McCain and other Republicans who vote against us on key votes. It is not an idle threat. Their careers, families, income, social position would all be destroyed.
Forget Powell, he´s a nothing. Let´s concentrate on two RINO´s who´ll campaign on the slogan " Conservative ". Now, McCONell needs to go, but Grahamesty using that moniker is more an insult than his voting record and across- the -aisle backdoor gerrymandering of our Constitutionalist republic. He´s a shiftless shill for his own wallet. Good God voters, save us from the bum.
There are a number of people who have lost my husband´s and my vote of confidence. Powell is one, Tony Dungee is another. These men, Dungee in particular, claimed the high road of morals and/or Christianity. But I will not accept being a follower of Christ, and voting for 0. And all who want to torpedo me, just get in line.
I´m with the rest on Lindsay Graham. There is a woman running against him in the primary who was the first woman graduate of The Citadel. Hope she does well. He has lots of money & years behind him. Besides, I don´t know who the Sunday talk shows will get if he leaves.
Hillbuzz.org also has an opinion about why McCain & Graham consistently let us down when it comes down to the final tally.
MG John Hudachek, Commander of the 4th Infantry Division saw Powell for what he was. He rated Powell a poor leader. Probably saw Powell for what he was...an affirmative action wannabe. Real soldiers don´t tolerate this and Hudachek saw through the thin veneer of a perfumed prince. Another real soldier Col David Hackworth would also have seen Powell as a ticket punching perfumed prince promoted by politicians.
ObamaCare has as its modus operandi a focus on medical management by already beleaguered primary care physicians and para-health professionals, at the expense of medical and surgical specialists. The law´s administrators hope to control costs by cutting already bare-bones specialty physician payments, limiting medical technology and access to imaging, and instituting de facto health care rationing. Medicine has been increasingly high-tech and more specialist-oriented, resulting in better, albeit more expensive, care. To cut expenses, ObamaCare is naïvely turning to an outmoded model of health care delivery -- one that has been shown to have comparatively poor patient outcomes.
One of the most startling revelations of late was that Congress has not seen the videos made by the Predator/Reaper remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) that were flying during that event we now call Benghazigate. This detail is one of many arising from the recent classified hearings held by the House Intelligence Committee in which five eye-witnesses to the event gave testimony for the first time (snip) The key point of the revelation is that not just that audio and video tapes of those events exist; that audio and video record was available to multiple command centers, commanders, and decision makers in
It isn´t my intention to compare and contrast the performances of Julie Andrews and Carrie Underwood, both of whom sang the lead role of Maria in The Sound of Music. (snip) The Sound of Music reveals the culture shock that typified the sixties. During that time there was a titanic wrestling match between traditional America and radical America. For the time being, it appears the radical version of our country has prevailed. I watched both the staged and on-screen versions. I honestly felt I may as well have been watching a musical about medieval England. The story seemed as far removed
The political collapse of Barack Obama continues apace, with his own allies in the Democratic Party starting to give up on him. Now comes news that Obamacare supporters outside the party have decided to take matters in their own hands, rather than rely on the White House to sell Obamacare. Noam N. Levey and Kathleen Hennessey of the Los Angeles Times report: As supporters of the Affordable Care Act brace for new headaches next year, many have concluded they cannot count on the Obama administration, whose efforts to explain and promote the law are increasingly viewed as poorly planned, unreliable and
The old media won´t tell you so, but President Obama is facing a revolt from within his own political party. It was bound to happen once the dimensions of the ObamaCare disaster started to become obvious. Yesterday, I pointed out that Charles Rangel is an early indicator of the discontent bubbling beneath the surface, and that he is freer to speak than non-black Democrats. But today we have another leading indicator. (snip)Rosslyn Smith points out: "If Obama has lost Gergen, he´s lost the entire DC establishment. Gergen is almost the perfect indicator of the conventional wisdom inside the beltway.
MSNBC is the gift that keeps on giving, serving up propaganda intended to benefit the far left, but which in its absurdity repels people grounded in reality.

A word that was originally intended as a
Like communism, the collapse of the Obama Administration agenda is inevitable, not solely as a result of its many flawed policies, but because it lacks an ethical dimension in regard to individual rights, justifiable criteria for its use of state coercion and, in particular, a respect for the truth. Stated simply, Obama lies because the true objectives of his fundamental transformation of the United States are incompatible with American democracy and tradition. (snip) The arrogance and mendacity of the Obama White House is directly proportional to misplaced political loyalty and a submissive and willfully blind press.
By now, the news has spread online of the IRS audit notices sent to two Obamacare whistleblowers. On November 25th, cancer victim Bill Elliott and C. Steven Tucker were informed of the ordeal each was to face. Elliott has been waging a pitched battle with cancer. Tucker is the insurance agent and healthcare freedom activist who informed him that the canceling of his insurance, wrought by the Obama administration for the sake pushing citizens into Obamacare, was illegal. Tucker reached out immediately after Elliott appeared on Fox News´ The Kelly File, Nov. 7th, and Elliott´s insurance was hastily reinstated.
I claim no special insider knowledge of the Democratic Party´s inner workings, but still I am rather certain that discontent with President Obama is bubbling beneath the veneer of public unity behind the Nation´s First Black President. (snip) They´re two of the most powerful African-American politicians in the land. And by most accounts, President Obama and Rep. Charles Rangel hate each other. The most recently revealed salvo in their war of words - Obama´s assertion that Rangel is a "hack," according to the political tome "Double Down" - is just one element of a long-dysfunctional relationship.
Well, well, well. It´s always a glorious day in a socialist paradise when the lefties show their tyrannical hand and try to suppress speech. They want Americans to have accessibility to healthcare, but not to any information about the insurance they are forcing millions to purchase. In order to arm Californians with accurate information about the California Healthcare Exchange, the California Republican Assembly launched a website this past August called CoveringHealthcareCA.com -- clearly setting forth what you have to do, the date by which you have to do it and the consequences if you don´t.
The GOP establishment is loath to admit it, but the government shutdown is turning out to be a brilliant political chess move on the part of Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. The Obamacare disaster, fully predictable by anyone who understands the effect of incentives and the fundamental incompetence of academic theorists and left wing ideologues, has made the go-for-broke attempt to stop it an obvious profile in courage. (snip) The budget and debt limit fights lie ahead. Cruz and Lee have laid out the path for us. The GOP can now say that that because the Democrats have shown
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a

President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
All three networks on Monday morning highlighted the appearance of the Obamas at the Kennedy Center Honors, but only ABC fawned over "fashion win" of First Lady.

An excited Spencer explained that Mrs. Obama looked "absolutely ravishing in a flowing teal gown as she accompanied President Obama." The co-host declared, "Another big fashion win for the First Lady.
