Benghazi reporter Kirkpatrick
showed his naked body to all in college

Daily Caller, by Charles C. Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/4/2014 6:16:54 AM

The author of the widely disputed New York Times article on Benghazi repeatedly posed naked as a Princeton student. Far from the moderate journalist pose he strikes now, David D. Kirkpatrick was a prominent campus progressive and activist. Kirkpatrick was arrested for lewd conduct, advocated for classes on pornography, and even posed for Playgirl. “Kinky” Kirkpatrick had a “rather unusual habit of disrobing for photographers in public places,” reported The Daily Princetonian in January 22, 1990. “I’ve never been afraid to drop trou when it seemed like the right thing to do,” Kirkpatrick said of a Playgirl photo shoot he

sorry but not getting this as a "must read" This gets us off topic. It gives the Hillary crowd aid and comfort by making those of us who realize Hillary´s perfidy have to talk about some dopey antics from when this Shill for Hillary (a "Shillary?") when he was a an undergrad.

Knowledge, of all kinds, is always a good thing. This article show you what campaigns are becoming. After all they found a 30 year old tape of Paula Deen and pretty much destroyed her. You think they aren´t going to do this with every Tea Party and Republican candidate? Just wait and see.

Kirkpatrick is a product of the decaying culture we see on display everyday. Common decency is becoming obsolete. Morals are non-existent and society suffers for if. We desperately need to find our way back to God. This godless self-centered existence produces nothing of value.

An exhibitionist that craves attention. Things must have been slow and uneventful at the Times these days. What a great way to get his name in the limelight.
However it backfired. I hope we go all the way in making a fool out of him, his employer and of course, Hillary. There has to consequences or this type of thing continues.

#18 - Kirkpatrick´s behavior was more than just a streaking episode after a beer fueled frat party. It shows a concerted effort to gain attention by pandering to the lowest aspects of human nature. Admittedly, this is a resume enhancer for a NYT "investigative reporter" but it´s not so stellar for one who purports to be a purveyor of truth.

Is it low and disgusting to tar people by bringing up questionable actions from their past? Yes. Would conservatives prefer reasonable debate on the merits, or lack thereof, of policy and principles? Yes. But we ain´t gonna get it, because our enemy fights dirty and follows only Alinsky rules.

In all our threads about Iraq and Afghanistan we lament the limiting ROEs that put our military lives in danger with no hope of success or final victory. Our enemies fight dirty and follow only Mohammad’s rules. We urge our "representatives" to unleash our power and fight the enemy on their terms, not the ossified gentlemen´s agreement of "civilized" warfare enshrined by the now lifeless Geneva Convention.

Well, we are fighting an existential war for our freedom, liberty, and the rule of law as formulated by our Constitution. Yet, many on "our side" still continue to insist on ROEs that our enemy does not recognize. It is time to take off the kid gloves of comity and compromise. Fight fire with fire. Fight scandal with scandal.

The communists use this technique to discredit the information and ideas of their enemies. Here we have a socialist rewriting of history for the Benghazi Massacre, discredit him and re discredit his propaganda.

The time for Marquess of Queensberry is over! The concept has cost us elections and very nearly the whole country.

#18, we know more about the backgrounds of the people who entertain us than we know about those who influence the perceptions of government, politics, and events that impact the nation and the lives of the citizenry. Same is true of those in unelected positions in government. What do we know about those who are working with/for and influencing our elected officials.

It might be instructive and beneficial to know more about those on the Left who determine what is and is not "dredged up", and the hows and whys of the reporting considering their power to influence and their lack of scruples in doing it.

#5 may have missed this: "´I failed to use good judgment and I am not at all proud of my actions.´ "The charges were dismissed but Kirkpatrick did not stop appearing naked OR KEEP HIS PROMISE" [emphasis mine] If the reporter has a long history of being disingenuous in order to promote himself and his "narrative," that matters a lot re: his Benghazi reportage. What do you think #5?

#5 answers, "makes sense to me. No wonder I don´t pick the must reads."

Hillary Clinton today praised a 19-year-old woman who broke down crying at an event today as she revealed that she is an undocumented immigrant. The former first lady, secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate encountered the passionate young woman while taking questions at a “Girls: A No Ceilings Conversation” event at the Lower East Side Girl’s Club in Manhattan, “I have a very different glass ceiling than some of the girls are exhibiting here.

The ´War on Women´ Failed in 2012
Wall Street Journal, by Michael Medved    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/17/2014 7:48:13 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is suddenly upset about the alleged wage gap between men and women, but he´s not responding to a national economic crisis. Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

Regulation: In a victory for common sense, a federal judge has voided a race-based mandate of the Dodd-Frank Act that would have cost manufacturers and retailers billions in compliance expenses. Marking the first time a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that the financial "reform" law´s bizarre rule requiring companies to disclose whether their products contain "conflict minerals" from Africa violates the First Amendment. As we´ve argued, the rule had zero to do with financial reform and was sneaked into the law by Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters

Anyone wondering why the U.S. economy can´t seem to grow at its usual pace should examine one product category where production is booming: federal regulation. Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. While plenty of government employees deserve credit for this milestone, leadership matters. And by this measure President Obama has never been surpassed in the Oval Office. The latest rule-making tally comes from the Competitive Enterprise Institute´s Wayne Crews, who on April 29 will publish his annual review of federal regulation in

Fiscal Policy: Remember President Obama´s vow that, if re-elected, he´d pursue "balanced" deficit reduction? Either he forgot, or he hopes voters have, because a new report shows his latest budget is entirely unbalanced. When Obama released his budget this March, he said it included "smart spending cuts" and closed "tax loopholes" that benefit only "the wealthiest Americans." Obama added that his budget would put "our debt on a downward path as a share of our total economy, which independent experts have set as a critical target for fiscal responsibility." As with just about everything Obama says, none of these claims turns out be

Corruption: New emails show that both the IRS and Justice Department were involved in a probe of Tea Party and other conservative groups. This is no mere scandal — it´s a major breach of the law. The newly released emails were gathered for a Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch, a nonpartisan public interest law group. They show that former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner discussed with the Justice Department going after conservative groups that she believed lied about their political activities.

He was part of a 1,000-strong coalition of armed militia-men, cowboys on horseback, gun rights activists and others who rallied to Cliven Bundy´s Bunkerville ranch, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, in a stand-off with about a dozen agents from the federal Bureau of Land Management.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
