At What Point Do We Start An Investigation Into The Behavior Of Darrell Issa?

10002878_10152262025652489_2087341404_nWho would have ever thought a congressman from (of all states) California would lead a Republican witch hunt against President Obama and Hillary Clinton?  But that’s what we have with California Republican Representative Darrell Issa.

To be honest, I hadn’t really heard much from this guy until the infamous Benghazi obsession swept through the Republican party.  Then he was suddenly front and center trying to somehow validate their asinine conspiracy theories.

There’s just one problem – almost everything he was trying to “prove” continued to get debunked time and time again.  Even when the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee issued its report on Benghazi debunking these right-wing conspiracies, for Republicans like Issa, it didn’t change their minds.

And while he’s led the right-wing conspiracies about Benghazi, he’s also spearheaded another popular conservative folklore about the IRS targeting conservative groups.

Another right-wing conspiracy that’s been debunked several times.

Yet despite the fact that these conspiracies have been proven false on numerous occasions, there’s Mr. Issa, continuing to push his partisan witch hunt.

Here we are, wasting time and lots of taxpayer money, while Darrell Issa continues to push forward with these “investigations” that have already been debunked and invalidated.

So it prompted me to ask the question, “At what point do we investigate Darrell Issa for corruption?”

It’s clear that these “investigations” are nothing more than partisan maneuvers to slander the president and set up potential attacks on Hillary Clinton if she decides to run for president in 2016.  Issa is spending all of this money – and wasting all of this time – simply to pander to the right-wing base which is gullible enough to believe his lies and propaganda.

That’s it.

Which is why I have to ask, when do we start an investigation into his blatant attempts to play partisan politics while leading the way with these constant and ongoing ‘investigations’?

I’d like to know how much information he’s been presented with that’s clearly disproven his asinine conspiracies, why he’s ignored that information, and how much money we’ve wasted supporting his partisan attempts to slander President Obama and Hillary Clinton.  I think he should have to sit in front of a committee and testify against the overwhelming evidence that’s consistently nullified his “concerns.”

Isn’t that only fair?  The only “conspiracies” that seem to exist in all of this are those that have been concocted by Darrell Issa and his fellow Republicans.  And I think it’s time Mr. Issa sits on the other side of an investigation into why he continues to waste time and taxpayer money on investigations that have been repeatedly debunked.

    I would like to see Rep. Issa charged with a federal crime for his waste of taxpayer money, and then forced to personally pay back what has been spent on his witch hunts. It will never happen, but I think it should.

    • Earlene

      he is a republican isn’t he?? you can expect anything from them.

      • sue

        Yep, anything like trying to take back state’s rights, a free and burgeoning economy, reduced taxes on business so the economy can grow, stopping entitlements for deadbeats, and getting rid of all the so-called progressive movement in our nation. What we have is anything but progress!

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        hey micromastial skank: this might cook your noodle— 73% (yes) of food stamps go to feed kids under 13 and elderly over 65
        best part??? 80% of those two groups are,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, CAUCASIAN!!!
        repubs wanna crush financial support for the dead and crippled soldiers they screwed in the past UNPAID FOR war they started ( where SARE those WMDs??)
        repubs wanna NOT create jobs on state level; they want 2 overturn TWO constitutional laws ( abortion; ACA)
        repubs want gays NOT having equal rights
        …………and they are dying to get their greedy hands on social security!!
        =====================================
        progress? sounds like they want an arrested (growth) society
        PRAISE JEEEEESUS– and pass the tithing basket

      • CarolynH

        Thank you for that awesome reality check. Hopefully, she will at least check the facts you provided and learn a bit…..hopefully.

      • regressive teaparty trash

        they don’t want 2 see/hear/learn facts——— but with TRUE verifiable facts we as americans can learn truths and NOT be dissuaded by spinning ( see: FOX “news”)
        ……….. here is my latest rant: if the crybaby tea party is sooooooo certain of a coverup re: Benghazi and soooooo certain that democrats are muddling to protect this administration,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
        ——— then hows about the WEALTHY republicans starting with chairman ISSA ( wealthiest congressman in Washington) taking THEIR “private” funds instead of AMERICAN taxpayers money( see: repubs/ fiscally prudent party) and making THEIR OWN committee to get all needed info to (again) see that no conspiracy/coverup/ etc exists,,,,,
        funny how FOX “news” and tea party trash doesn’t come up with such a splendid tactic!

      • meatwad_SSuppet

        You might want to learn the method the framers of the United States intended to collect revenue for the government. To summarize it for you here, through tariffs and business taxes on goods crossing state lines.

      • ICBM904

        You might want to learn that the framers also allowed for those who followed to make changes. You might also want to learn that the world has changed just a bit in 250 years. How would you like to float a new aircraft carrier with some of your tariffs?

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        how about taxing religious businesses????
        f*cking VOODOO and superstition making gobs of money screwing lemmings

      • fearlesskris

        Except he’s not doing anything to stop deadbeat corporate owners. He’s not doing anything for state’s rights – certainly not the right to have equality for marriage, or equality for women’s health care. He’s a two bit criminal who should be behind bars rather than in front of a camera on the house floor. Regressive doesn’t begin to cover the lies this man is telling or the fraud he has perpetrated on the American people.

      • Donald Beasley

        Its unbelievable how stupid you are Sue

      • debengr

        All of that could probably have been done for less cost than he’s wasted on his faked investigations and lies.

      • Lightangel1960

        What does Issa’s witch hunt have to do with any of the above? Nothing…Nada, what we have here is Issa using the congress for right wing partisan politics, he is just trying to breath air into the dead right wing revolution and republican party. ;)

      • lamorpa

        Yup. That kind of partisan honk-honk nonsense can be expected. You mistake pandering for reality. It’s a pretty big mistake.

      • Marsha

        lol sue are you kidding? all the above you mentioned has not changed NONE of your states rights has been taken away (well unless they are closing down all abortion clinics in your state and mammograms and abortions has to be done in other states because yours are taking health care away from your citizen’s so that may be a problem at your state level because I am soooo SURE not EVRY woman in your state wishes them closed so are those the “state rights you speak of? then the states ARE/DO have a choice it’s just the female citizens of them DON’T!) You mean the “free and burgeoning economy” that has been allowed by the less than choice votes of republicans in gov’t that have VOTED FOR the shut down?, deregulation of corporations to allow them to pollute and blow up at will their employees because they REFUSE to follow epa and osha regulations? or the tax breaks or the tax loop holes these businesses get etc etc inorder to give the people “jobs” well none of those laws have changed and we haven’t seen any jobs created now have we but hey look on the bright side there is more contaminated dumping don’t illegally (hopefully in your neighborhood) the air quality has decreaced..coal plants are allowed to have their dirty air blow into the next state and those neighborhoods can do nothing about it( you know those “state’s rights you talk about, remember?) You mean to stop the entitlement like the old dead beats who get Medicare, like your mommy and daddy? or the retarded or mentally ill that get SSI? or all those tiny children and their mommies who’s daddy and husband got maimed or murdered in Bushy’2 war who get Social security until they 18??? Or do you mean your brethren the wounded and brain dead soldiers who we have to pay for the rest of their lives and the VA hospitals, retirement, and duty free goods and cheaper insurance and food stamps that U.S. tax payer pay for them? you are correct that NOTHING progressive has been done since YOUR party harps on things that has been LAW for the reason given “they weren’t in office to make the vote” LOL and they weren’t in office when the bill of rights was made EITHER so are they going to stonewall and try to repeal every or do you think they can sit down and TALK and compromise as the founding fathers intended? hum NAH for them its my way of the highway..(and YOU have the balls to blame demo’s?LOL) Or how about it’s YOUR party that’s in charge of creating bills to become laws and try to sneak in MORE perks and deregulations for corporations and banks? lol You remember those that got us into the depression to begin with? Nah didn’t think you remembered that . oh yeah and that’s in return for all those “jobs” ah yeah, riiiight. Or do you mean how your party refused to make a budget for five years because the ACA was put in place BEFORE the republican house took over and they had a temper tantrum for 5 years and 50 REJECTED repeals to get rid of ACA yeah THAT’s mature so hey they had a bright idea! To put 80,000 govt workers out of jobs and delay military pay checks for 3 months as a way to get the senate to repeal ACA LOL niiiiice smart compromising, debating going on there in the house hu ?so their other idea was to sequester, nope that didn’t work either did it?Cuz the democratic senate had to slap thie little wrists and say BAD republican house ou are destroying our economy even MORE and you have put even MORE people out of work and you have wasted 42 billion dollars already and not only that you have put ourwhole country’s security in a precariouse situation (since they had done that already by defunding and cutting back and refusing money for proper overseas security to be had (you do remember Benghazi don’t you SUE? LMAO) Your party wished to hire the cheapest bid on security rather than the best and the house rejected any more money to the doj for extra security in volatile areas you know, like Libya? But that’s all water under the bridge right SUE? you have such a short memory as well as you have no idea how the gov’t works, nor do you know exactly WHAT party has voted for what … you would just rather repeat your “patriotic” mantra (see your wrote comment above) that has been brainwashed into your tiny grey cells, and can’t even see what’s been playing out since your buddy bushy2 left office can you…it’s sad to know ignorant people like you vote to begin with …do me a favor… just do what your lazy ass has done for years.. just fill in the A-holes that have a “r” after their names just like your daddy and grandpappy did….stay mindless your ignorance makes for great entertainment and a detriment to America as well as all females past and present you embarrass make me some sweat tea bless your little self and keep having those preachers talk politics in church same ole same ole stepford wives I bet you sell real estate too lol

      • Martin G

        Watch Fox entrainment much?

      • Chris19741949

        He hasn’t DONE anything except have faux-investigations, over and over and over again. Please name one piece of legislation he has presented that 1) had a prayer of being passed, and 2) did anything at all good for anyone.

      • Cheri

        You mean like using the IRS to terrorize his opponents?

      • Lightangel1960

        Problem is right wing nut job that never happened…the IRS was not ‘targeting’ tea baggers they looked into ALL 501 (c) (4) groups including progressive groups like OWS to make sure they were ‘social welfare groups and not political…who knew baggers were socialist? When are you baggers going to spend all that money the Koch bros gave the tea party on the poor? ;)

      • Cheri

        wow

      • lamorpa

        You mean the partisan paranoid fantasy that this is happening? (that’s the reality as proven by multiple investigations) Sorry reality doesn’t fit your wishes.

      • Cheri

        Go away troll. It is clear you are uninformed. I’m not going to argue with someone who choses to remain uneducated. It’s pointless.

      • lamorpa

        Nah. I don’t feel like it. I rarely indulge in paranoid conspiracy theories. Just a personal preference, I guess (and reality too)

      • Chris19741949

        Yes, it certainly is pointless to argue with someone as uneducated and uninformed as you appear to be, Cheri. Too bad you won’t ever see this.

    • Larry Foster

      I agree

  • John Clark

    The one thing Rep Cummings got wrong was about representing 700k people. He represents 750k since we have only 8 House members and 6M people here in Merlin. I still blame the media for fanning the tiny cinders of the “scandal” in the first place. I’m not a reporter but I found the letter and Fox News transscipt from 2010 that laid it all out. Anybody who’s ever worked in a c3 knows that the IRS is always keeping an eye on you. And don’t apply as Progressive anything or you won’t get status. So if you want to give eyeglasses to poor people, call it the Non-bifocal Charity Project.

    • jimcracky

      Absolutely right! The only group that was denied tax free status was a progressive group. Sheesh!! Issa is a mean-spirited, tea-bagger. But I’m being redundant.

      • sue

        You need to get out more and stop getting your news (not) from MSNBC!

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        why? they have facts– backed up by CBO and US treasury numbers.
        FOX “news” has opinons ( see: FOX newest pol!)

      • Socrates Uncle

        Wow. Keep your head in the sand so no more ignorant moronic statements come out of your mouth! You could not be more wrong!

  • Sally

    I first became aware of Issa when he banned Sandra Fluke from the panel on birth control. Remember, he was the one who called the all-male panel to debate the merits of birth control coverage in the Affordable Care Act and kept women from speaking.

    • shaunadee

      Sandra Fluke was and is an embarrassment to the human race, and to women especially. What a stupid argument that kept going and going…

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        wow– that has a lot to do with white trash regressives such as issa who (in his youth) was a car thief,,,,,,,,,,, now wasting taxpayer money ( republican fiscal prudency) chasing dead ghosts. Sounds like U love losers such as rush ( needledick druggie) Limbaugh and sean “puffbelly” hannity

      • MLR

        Sandra Fluke is hardly an embarrasement. She is a lawyer who is now running for office and I believe she will win and go far in her career. If regressive ignorants had paid attention they would know that she was actually testifying on behalf of a friend of hers who needed birth control for a medical condition, that if left untreated would of caused her to lose her ovaries and therefore preventing her from having children in the future. The issue was never birth control for Sandra Fluke, but conservatives chose to launch sick, personal attacks against her anyway. This shows their deep ignorance and refusal to listen to actual facts, instead of listening to disgusting ignorant has-beens like el Rushbo. I’d rather my daughters and granddaughters have Sandra Fluke as a role model than pathetic has-beens like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann.

      • shaunadee

        birth control pills are still only about $10 at Walmart. What was all the fuss about. Just go get the pills. If she was so poor she couldn’t pay the 10, surely Sandra could have helped her. Instead she has to make a national spectacle of the whole thing

      • Michael Kazman

        Sandra Fluke is a poster child for random sex with multiple partners and a thirst for taxpayers to support her not producing a baby while spreading her legs!

      • AlbertCat

        Get’s ya hot, don’t it Michael…..

        mikey has a crush on women who spread……

        ===================================
        hey mikey: praise jeeeeeeeeesus

      • debengr

        Fox news watcher huh? That is not what she was to testify about. You aren’t uninformed enough to know that these pills also are a medicine to control any number of female health issues. Birth control only being one of them.

      • michaelsmom

        This is YOUR thoughts, YOUR opinion, based on NOTHING. You know NOTHING about her personal life and it is none of your business anyway. Sex between consenting adults was legal the last time I checked. Take you nasty misogyny and stick it where the sun don’t shine.

      • michaelbdeane

        The only thing stupid here is that comment…

      • fearlesskris

        Well you might want to get used to this incredible young woman – she’s running for office. I hope she can bring the intelligence and grace she has shown so far to the national conversation. It’s not really an argument – it is a group of horrid old men trying to create their own version of “The Handmaid’s Tale” out of the women in this country. You can just google that if you don’t read ShaunaDee…

      • jungledog

        That’s right, attack Sandra Fluke and sidestep the point that it’s asinine for an all-male panel to debate birth control coverage and refuse to allow any women to be heard

      • Lightangel1960

        Tea baggers are an embarrassment to America and the human race…the right wing tealiban will go into the dust bin of American history after 2014 and rot. ;)

    • Socrates Uncle

      Hahahahahaha. No wonder our country is in trouble. You call that logic?

  • Brett Lewis

    Way past time he is investigated. I just hope democrats remember the witch hunts that take place when there is a democrat at the helm. If/When another Republican is elected President enough with the “we aren’t going to act like them” bs. Start the investigations, disrespect, and conspiracy theories as soon as they are elected. Give them a taste of their own bull crap and maybe they will stop acting like idiots.

    • sue

      You need to have watched C-SPAN when George W, Bush was President then you’d know about the vitriole spewed toward Republicans!

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        agreed=,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, bush got terrible treatment.
        nothing like what Obama is getting,,,,,,,,,,,, but terrible.
        ===========================================
        NOTE: bush policies== 2 unpaid wars,,,,surplus rapidly turned into deficit; medicare D ( screwing seniors) and that silly housing bubble and hear depression. (OOOOPS– I didn’t mention those two tall buildings which fell down)

  • srsmith

    He’s learned from the best……Congress….what is this now? 50? The amount of money these republicans have spent on waisting time could go towards…..let’s see….benefits for Veterans? food stamp program? etc?

    • meatwad_SSuppet

      But benefits for veterans is nothing but another ‘entitlement’ program. Funny that the biggest and loudest party for the “soldier” is the same ones that love to cut away at the contract they made with the soldiers.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

      Yeah more food stamps you damn couchdwellers are sucking the government teet dry! Taking away from those that truly need help!

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        ya mean like the (73%) under 13 and over 65 yr olds who use the food stamps; or just continuing to screw the soldiers injured–and killed– in the repub Iraq war?
        lemme know

  • Ssquared

    I have a quicker solution. Vote him out of office in November. It’s up to the voters in his district.

    • Larry Swain

      I guess you aren’t that familiar with California politics and Issa’s district. It’s possible, I guess, but not likely.

      • Michael Kazman

        About as likely as “Lagosi” Pelosi getting voted out!

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        I like her—– great tits!!

        note– palin is sexy- I wanna go down on her

  • Mark Schmidt

    I believe ALL congressional republicans should be investigated – they are approaching treason, and many have crossed that line, including Issa. He is already a convicted felon, and habitual liar, but I guess that is part of his GOP qualification…

    • JoeCitizen

      How about RICO charges against ALEC and the GOP???

    • meatwad_SSuppet

      That would be a good start. Imagine a nobody but the ‘son of a congressman’ gets his dad’s seat after dad* retires from congress. Happens all the time and a clue that the game is rigged.

      • Vicky J

        I’m a Progressive who is, unfortunately, stuck in a republican county, with Hunter as my rep., and have watched as the thief (Issa) makes millions and struts his bizarre ideology for all the dumb-nuts who believe his BS… smh

        I’m a conservative who is, unfortunately, stuck in a leberal run country, with obama as the president, and have watched as the thief (obie) makes millions and struts his bizarre ideology for all the dumb-nuts who believe his BS… smh

      • meatwad_SSuppet

        How is the O’Bummer making millions there sputnik? Last I checked his pay was well below that every year.

        Nobody did the strut like the last dud from Texas. Imagine lying to get two wars started and then claiming to be the one that supports the troops as they cut all benefits they had as a contract between them and those soldiers. That really gets me every time I hear a con server speaking about supporting the troops.

      • ken clute

        First point you pudwhacker is that as usual, liberals asshats like yourself ALWAYS ignore the facts, do NO research on their own, AND ALWAYS say BUSHBUSHBUSHBUSHBUSHBABABABABABUSS!! Obie had a net worth of $900K when he took office, in FIVE years ha gone to 12.2MILLION DOLLARS!! As for the troops, Obie was to have brought them ALL home in 2008 during his 1st year or do you not have enough brain cells to remember him telling us that along with all of his other pinocchio lies? Well… no answer, thought not you beef-witted little cockalorum troll. Go back to mommies basement and let the big people talk now, go on run along.

      • Jon-David S. Christie

        ooo. I like your mature discussion of policy and governance ken clute. Directly to name calling and hyperbole. What names will you call me? Dooky-head?Some other playground insult? There is nothing you can do about anything at all and your impotence is amusing. Enjoy the next 10 years in the wilderness.

      • ken clute

        ok dickhead, first, he name called first. Now you did first so oooooo you are a dickhead. Your impotence is laughable as you brought NOTHING to this discussion except to butt in where you don’t belong. Now toddle away and change your depends because I am sure that you just crapped yourself with your astute observations. People like you give demorats a bad name and your herd should have been culled along time ago, you beef-witted cickalorum!!

      • Joyce Jacobson

        And you have brought nothing but stupidity and rudeness, you foul-mouthed SOB. How old are you…10? Does your mother know how you talk or does she even care? How many autographed pictures of Rush and the Trumpster do you have in your wallet? Do you watch anything but Faux News? Didn’t think so. What a sorry life you must have…..

      • ken clute

        It never ceases to amaze me when liberals RESPOND to a post, even when they are not involved in the discussion, they begin their “statement” with name calling. I resort to name calling and suddenly I am the child. My mother has been dead for 8 years you fucking cunt so shut your pie hole on that subject! Rush, trump and faux news are several fine examples of right wing nut jobs and I have no time for them. You on the other hand, along with all of the other beef-witted cockalorums posting here, seem to be stuck in the dark ages like alberpussy that posted below. When the chips are down and you have nothing of substance to say you just say BABABABABBABBAUUUUUSSHHH! Bush has been out of office for 5 years get the fuck over it and tell me one thing that this hack of a prez has done that is worthwhile. by the way pussy, I do not parrot any talk shows because I do not tolerate the bullshit that comes from them. You on the other hand, ARE parroting the liberal crap that surfaces from time to time in the “news”. I’m done with wasting my time with all of you aholes on this thread, what was I thinking, an intelligent discusssion with a bunch of clueless morons?

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        ok there gerbil droppings!!! allow me to eviscerate you with lexiphanic aspersions! first: where O where O where were all of U “patriots” ( DBA white trash religious scumbags) UNTIL Obama was elected??? NOOOOOOOOwhere– not a drop of “tea” spilled until he appeared. ergo – the crying about BIG govt/spending/etc is rendered jejune as a discussion. ( note– in observing your vanilla-at-best and NUGATORY comments listed above I ask that you PU-LEEEEZ learn basic spelling; its actually a great resource!)
        Obama is making money? U crybabies retort that that IS the “American dream” so ( again) your lachrymose rant is non sequitur.
        You decry “obies” bizarre ideology- Hmmmmm!!! ” bizarre”…let me navigate this–
        ” bizzare” ……. allowing ALL americans an EQUAL opportunity to climb what ever financial and socio-economic ladder they see and desire. ( that is F*CKING BIZARRE; aint it???)
        perhaps my interjection may ( doubtful) edify your oligophrenial emetic ” thinking”.
        we who are ‘liberal’ simply are tired of white trash religious aging scum running the country as elitists. (NOTE: Im a white self employed chef living in sunny pompano beach FL; home of idiotic republican governors)
        we simply cannot stomach the lies we have been told for so long ; lies which have been rampant in BOTH parties forever but especially acute in the john birch scum propagating from the 60′s and re-appearing as the tea party. same group; diff name. CONSERVING WHAT???? what??? voodoo and superstition( religion) and keeping blacks/women/gays/ martians ET AL in chains as “less than”???
        I totototally realize that my badinage here will have no impact upon you or any lemming strutting the solied feathers of the dying peacock known as “conservatism” (SEE: regressives)
        The good news? I am willing to wager that (a) 45% of my magniloquent and scurrilous ‘heuristic’ language today imbued to you will fall upon (stone) deaf ears.
        We look 4ward2 your otiose remarks. I kinda like ‘pudwacker’ as it ostensibly conveys transposition of your quotidian onanistic forays into post-prandial oblivion.
        …………………………………. adieu

      • ken clute

        so this is “trashing”? Going to a dictionary and looking up synonyms for the crap you spew to look self important is nothing more than your childish and feeble attempt on your part to spew your self hate. Instead of sitting in your mommies basement commenting about womens tits, get off of your ass and find a job, quit trolling this post, and stop masturbating while dreaming of Sarah Palin, you might get enough money to go out and find a hooker. You are nothing more than a waste of my time there Sputnik!! Go look up beef-witted and cockalorum ,Spanky, you will see your picture there beside both words!!! I am now done with you!!!

        palin? not bad; I just want maybe 2 hours with her insane self– she isn’t really busty enough to keep my interest.
        you don’t like comments about macromastia? sounds like you don’t have a good ( or existential) grip ON womens body parts.
        I don’t need a dictionary to write ignominious replies to your room temperature IQ self; I studied linguistics in college and have made it a hobby of mine to continually send such “bavardage” to coelacanth-minded nescients such as you– as a rather famed historical human once wrote:
        ‘ the pen is mightier than the sword’
        ===================================

      • ken clute

        oooh, I am so impressed! My home in Newport Beach, CA is also in a gated community right across from Fashion Island where I own an office building, paid off, as is my 3 million dollar home. I own several parcels of commercial property along with the marina once owned by John Wayne, with 37 rentals on it that bring in 2000 to 6000 per month in passive income that thanks to obie is going to screw me big time in taxes on the GROSS income from them . At least it’s all free and clear so will be easy to unload in case broomhilda gets elected when I move to Italy. BTW Nick Cage said to say hi , he lives at the end of my marina overlooking Newport Bay. go have a snickers now!

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        wow–
        tell balding nick to pay his taxes.
        sorry about your alleged tax load. we who HAVE the moxie ( and slick accountants; not to RE menition a 100% cash income VIA business) to pay “jes’ enuff” to keep “avuncular sam” off our ( financial) backs know the game and learn to navigate just under the radar.
        3 million dollar home?
        wow! ,,,,,,,,and no females ( of TRUE California/south florida aesthetic value) want to play with ya??? I guess U indeed apply the inverted refrain ” a waist is a terrible thing to mind”
        (NOTE: a true millionaire would know 90%–or MORE– of the lexiphanic vernacular I use in disemboweling you.)
        you have been exposed as ersatz.

      • ken clute

        actually, I do know the terms that you use, I choose to ignore your sanctimonius rants. You are wasting your time as a “cash only” chef! Passive income is where it’s at, so just to help you out before I abandoned this kindergarten discussion and waste any more time with you, let me give you a little tip towards wealth acquistion that my father who only went as far in school as the 7th grade taught me. And you don’t even need to pay for this. REAL wealth is found in REAL estate. You say that you have income properties so you should know this secret, but for anyone else reading this here you go. Put your money into ground leases, you know, the kind where you own the land and someone else leases the building that sits on it. When their lease expires, you don’t renew the lease and become the owner of the building. My building in Fashion Island was acquired that way, I bought the lease for 300K and now own the office building that sits on it valued at 5 mil free and clear. Did 3 Carls JR drive throughs the same way. Oh and by the way, my wife is 38 years old, and I am 64. Yes, I am exposed, you sir hide behind the name of a lizard, or a kids toy block set, I do not know or care which, so please don’t waste any more brain cells on this.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        agreed with real estate,,,,, (!!) and do not forget land backed mortgages.
        ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I don’t care if U are 64 or 34 or 104— act it. U disrespect me; I send back same with my “twist”. U respect me? I play same. Easy to see; easy to say– sometime tough to adhere ( both of us)
        your wife 38? ” bully for you” — without being aspersive I must edify here: I learned decades ago that younger chics ( age being relative here) are not worth it. Perhaps–if being truthful — you have a gem. I drilled waaaay too many women which simply were not qualified for anything else than “drilling”– ergo I play with femmes in my age bracket- maybe 3 yrs up/ 8 yrs lower. My business has me surrounded with idiotic but sexually appealing women who many times (yuk ) want me for sex. its NOT good for my money and as I inferred; done it enough 2 know that overeating causes problems. Besides; I do not cheat upon whom I am with ever.
        TEGU? since 1979 I have owned argentine tegus( remarkable pets) and other exotic lizards,,,Tegus best– I just bought a caiman lizard ( NO: NOT A CAIMAN!!) so we shall see if he(he??) is to be held in the ‘familial’ value of TEGUS with me.
        fini– I doubt U know the majority of my ( without question) over-use of our remarkable language; as I wager I don’t have your net worth ( listed here)
        bottom line is that all men have strengths and weaknesses.
        Enjoy yours; I will enjoy mine.

        Here is some reality: Obama’s income in 2007 (before he was elected, y’know) was 4.2 million and in 2008 was less… 2,7 million. He is now worth 12.2 million because of the huge increase in sales of his books since his election. What’s the prob? At least he’s not getting paid illegally by Halliburton. (BTW, Cheney was worth 20 million when he pretended to quit to be VP)

Hillary’s crimes? That’s funny. Name one. There is no Benghazi scandal. Terrorists attacked and killed four Americans. There was no order to stand down, no military action that could be taken, and there was no lie for political reasons. Just a boatload of stupid from the extremist branch of the Republican party.

  • strayaway

    The IRS has been used to punish Obama’s enemies. I guess we should expect such things in his banana republic “I have a pen and a phone” presidency. Yesterday, Lois Lerner of the IRS again pleaded the Fifth Amendment. Maybe the House could charge her with contempt. They could give her immunity but the record show that other officials like Clapper who lied to Congress recieve no punishment.

    • Alice Wheeler

      Hi strayaway, Please, don’t be disingenous. You know that the Fifth has been used by many, many in various administrations, from both the elephants side, and the donkeys side. Don’t try to make it an “Obama” thing.

      • strayaway

        It’s happened before but this article has to do with the Issa hearings at which Lois Lerner who headed the IRS division that targeted tea party and other conservative groups for extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status has twice invoked the Fifth, yesterday in response to being questioned about her role in developing screening methods for non-profits. That seemed like an innocuous question. One has to wonder why she would find it necessary to dodge such a question. Remember that this is the Lame Lois Lerner who pre-dated Malik Obama’s non-profit group’s application.

      • David Saint

        remember that these 501(C) groups were in fact abusing the exemption.

      • strayaway

        I don’t know that. Most of these right leaning groups eventually received their status after lengthy delays. Why was that if they had abused their exemptions?

      • David Saint

        lol well most of them did say that this caused them not to be able to influence a single election. Violation right there. For comparison, Dubya justified him having the IRS go after the NAACP and Greenpeace simply because they made remarks about him or the war! Several groups sent mailers favoring a specific candidate (Mitt in general though)

      • strayaway

        I’m ok with incarcerating Bush too.

      • David Saint

        if its proven, not speculated, that Obama had something to do with it..i’ll line right up for his impeachment. But speculation and innuendo are a far cry from being factual.

      • strayaway

        It is only speculation at this point but his appointees are lying and taking the Fifth. That is where we are. If he is not part of this, his appointees are willing to take a spear for him, or time runs out he can retire like Bush and play golf. But why not just impeach him for Libya as Kucinich suggested if Republican take over the Senate?

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        guess we must wait and see,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
        I do love how a man ( Obama) who probably knows the constitution better than every person in office ( which means hes not going to make any mistakes which send him to sing sing) is chased by crybabies who actually fear his constitutional knowledge,,,,,,,thats why they didn’t want him in office: they know that he KNOWS!!

      • DH

        “the IRS division that targeted tea party and other conservative groups”… and? annnnnnd??? Oh, and liberal groups as well, all for having politically motivated names and politically motivated agendas, that should not have qualified for the tax exemption… Just because there happened to be more tea party and conservative organizations that were unable to understand what a 501(c) is and how it is supposed to operate, doesn’t make it a scandal when the IRS enforces the law.

        Maybe the scandal is actually those applying for the status?

        Anyway, I see your point about her pleading the 5th. All you have to do is look at those morons involved with a “proven” scandal about that stupid bridge. They all have plead the 5th to prolong the inevitable.

      • strayaway

        You liberal talking point glosses over the fact that 292 conservative and 6 liberal groups were audited. So, in a way, you are right that some liberal groups also ran into resistance. Meanwhile read up on Lois Lerners’ approval of Malik Obama’s shady African non-profit with Islamist links and no place of business. That got approved. Two standards.

        Since this scandal came up, the standards have been redesigned to make it easier to screen out conservative groups so moving forward in Obama’s banana republic, it will be easier for the IRS to stomp on Obama’s opponents.

      • DH

        Show me a list me a list with the names of these groups so we can all have a good laugh…

      • Martin

        LMAO! Your facts are incorrect as a matter of fact you are incredibly wrong it was more or less near 55% of the groups “targeted” as you idiots put it that were liberal leaning… So get your facts from someone else besides Rush and Hannity…Dufus…

      • strayaway

      • meatwad_SSuppet

        By your silence on it, you agree that those con-serving groups did not deserve the tax status they applied for.

      • strayaway

        It could mean that or fifty other things including not being something I was ever addressing. Now that you bring it up however, today’s Daily Mail has a good article about the IRS, after the fact, changing its rules to make it harder especially for conservative non-profit groups to operate. This change in administrative rules suggests that previous attempts to reign in conservative groups were inadequate. These new regulations singling out conservative groups also suggest an IRS bias. But then what do we expect from Obama’s banana republic administrators? On a more positive note, Lois Lerner has agreed to hand over what she claims are all her emails; something the congressional committee asked for 8 months ago. This is after she was schmoozing with some (in)Justice Department officials in the previous couple of days.

      • sue

        The government does not create jobs, the private sector does. All that stimulus was WASTED on Obama donors, the unions, green-energy that was not producing, and bailout of the auto-industry (except FORD). Auto-industry investors lost millions while the UAW was saved. Congress approves spending or refuses to pay based on what is prudent or necessary to the benefit of most of us. Having those who make good incomes pay more taxes to cover those who made poor choices in their lives, is not fair no matter how one tries to spin it. Government can not expect to keep spending, have more on entitlements, and taxing those who work more, and expect growth in the economy! Get out of the way of free-enterprise, give tax-breaks to the producers, not the takers!

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        hey skank— U really should note this FIRST: Ima self employed CHEF here in south FLA with a 100% cash business. my employees are (smartly) 1099 employees; so taxes are not my problem ( my tax burden lies with capital gains in my stock/option portfolio and my 2 commercial/one residential real estate holdings- rent)
        our govt ( obamas admin) MADE big profits loaning $$$ to ‘bailout’ the autos….
        the private sector also screws environments and underpays ( usually) employees; that easily seen by wages not keeping up with productivity( and corporate profits) which is WHY I stopped working for others; now my own irascible boss. ( love 100% cash,,,,don’t you?)
        I surmise that you “think” that the tea party trash did a GOOD American value by shutting down the govt? or maybe– having aging white trash regressive religious scumbags TRY2 force the VOODOO ( see : 21 century CHRIST) into politics and governing??

      It would help if the Republicans actually had a plan. Don’t like Obamacare? Suggest something else other than “damn poor people don’t need no damn health care dammit.” “Now keep your filthy hands off my Medicare.” The problem is that they just waste time and money on their little made up scandals. Lerner is entirely within her rights to take the 5th. How much money does Issa want to spend hearing that answer? Last I heard, we’re up to $7 million.

      • strayaway

        Sure, she is within her rights to take the Fifth and probably has a good reason for doing so. She is entitled to the same rights as any common criminal.

      • meatwad_SSuppet

        They can’t offer an alternative to “obamacare” because ACA is the republicans alternative to the ‘one payer’ plan the Billary clintons came up with in the 1990s.

  • Neil Myers

    Lets do it when the Government Officials comply and provide the Subpoenaed emails, 90% of which they have failed to so. Until Government officials stop taking the fifth and fail to testify for fear of being prosecuted for crimes they committed, and let wait until the Victims of the crimes have actually been questioned, which the FBI refuses to hear about the crime from the victims point of view.

        All of his executive orders, Gun control by taking guns away form the law abiding citizens and leaving them in the hands of criminals, who have the unregistered guns, telling Lerner to plea the fifth on every question, spending millions to hide all his past. You only do this if you have something discriminating to hide. Appointing people to his cabinet with firmer ties to terrorism. Destroying our economy by putting us in so much debt. Diividing the country by emphasizing racism having black against white. Trying to take more money from the rich and give it to people who don’t want to work. Gays against straights, Christians and Jews against muslims, At least he increased the amount of people in poverty,didn’t do one thing the help the blacks except give them their “entitlements” Benghazi cover ups.

The rich are paying the lowest tax rate ever.your message supports the divide between, races, sexual orientation, and religion. The Repubs are pushing people into poverty by not bringing any jobs bills to be voted on and supporting the destruction of unions, and keeping the minimum wage at a poverty level.

        We should stop the tax free status of all so claimed “non profits” and of course all of those non prophets, as the for profit businesses they actually are. To actually file paper work claiming they are a not for profit business, then turn around and PAY anyone is an open admission of Federal financial fraud. If they pay anyone, that is a profit that is NOT apart of the claimed charity goal. I know, I hate to be the one that sticks to ‘the rules’ being the rule breaker that I am.

This is the reason that non-scandals like Benghazi and the IRS, which have been debunked, keep being repeated. even in the MSM. it has been established that the IRS used keywords like “Occupy” and “teaparty” to sort through piles of applications. This hardly sounds like conservatives were the ones being targeted.

        example: we had a surplus under Clinton yet the debt still rose under that president. the debt AND deficits BOTH rocketed under Reagan and both bushes .

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        hey shitbag— funny how U didn’t respond to my facts—

      • SecularHumanist199

        Now you are just proving that you are ignorant. The deficit, which is the difference between annual government spending and income, has gone down every year that Obama has been in office. It is projected to be about $5-600 million this year, down from $1.4 Trillion during Bush’s last year in office.
        The national debt, which is the accumulated money owed as a result of deficit spending, continues to rise because there is still an annual deficit. About 75% of the of the deficit comes from the slowdown in economic activity created by the Bush recession, the Bush tax cuts, the funding of Bush’s wars, and Medicare part D. Spending under Obama has actually increased at the slowest rate since the Eisenhower administration.
        Brain dead republicans like to claim that Obama is taxing us to death and spending us into a whole, when the reality is that taxes only went down during Obama’s first term and the only increases in his second were the elimination of the top bracket of the Bush tax cuts, and the reversion of the social security payroll tax to what it was before Obama cut it in his first term.
        So, it is a FACT that President Obama has NOT created any major new taxes and he has reduced the rate of spending increase in the federal government. Unfortunately this doesn’t fit with the republican narrative as democrats somehow being the “tax and spend” party giving free stuff to everybody, so they just lie about it.

        The Federal deficit will be $7,600,000,000,000 (yes, trillions) from 2015 through 2024.
        The Federal debt will increase from $16.7 trillion to $27.2 trillion over that time.
        In 2007 the Federal debt was $5 trillion, one-fifth of the amount expected in 2024.
        So, according to the new head of the Fed, the wacko-extremist-shrill-lying-paranoid tea partiers, in addition to the many others who’ve been sounding an alarm over spending concerns, are actually racist right.

    If you like your Elijah Cummings you can keep your Elijah Cumming. Attacking Issa on this shows what lug nuts Progressives ( what a joke of a term) are.

  • jungledog

    There’s a difference between people who are gullible enough to believe the kind of crap Issa keeps putting out there and the ones who love his BS because it’s a tasty little hate morsel wrapped in just enough bad logic to provide some cover while you gorge your inner racist on the sly. It reminds me of all the people back in the 60s that used to purposefully mispronounce negro as ‘nigra’.

    • lj

      The Liberals are the hate mongers. You are projecting.

      • jungledog

        If you say so, but what do you call it when people want to cling to ideas which have no basis in fact but which fit their hateful world view?

      • lj

        I call them progressive Liberals

      • jungledog

        Frankly I believe it’s human nature to make decisions based on emotion and that’s exploited by both sides. But the hateful part appears to be the provence of Republicans. Most Republicans are not racist however most racists are Republicans and that’s not ignored in Republican propaganda. I won’t deny I lean left but I make an effort not to be shammed and dissagree with many liberals’ outlook. In the case of the story above I’m convinced Issa’s Ideas have been effectively debunked and he continues to flog them dispite that fact in order to appeal to the base emotions of his supporters.

      • lj

        Debunked? How? There has been so much that has come out in the hearings that support Issa’s Investigation. Have you watched and formed your own opinion, or are you like most people who comment with MSM talking points as the basis for your belief? The Hate is always coming from the Democrats who call any one who disagrees with them racist. It’s absurd.

      • jungledog

        If when you ask about the basis of my belief you are referring to what I said about why some people buy Issa’s hogwash, my ideas about how people form opinions and make decisions comes from 30 years working in and around sales and marketing. In addition to what I know from direct personal observation through my work, I like to read about the history as well as current academic thinking about things I’m involved in and learned a lot about how political propaganda and the shaping of public opinion work that way.

        And if you mean my belief that Issa’s conspiracy theories have been debunked, let me ask you if you even read the article above. How about the result of a bipartisan senate report which found there was a failure to respond appropriately to the available intelligence but no evidence of the political coverup that he alleges? I think it’s safe to assume similar lapses surround all the embassy attacks under both Bush administrations and Reagan’s. Attacks about which there was no Republican outrage. But I digress.

        The IRS scandal was wrong and it’s a good thing it’s been brought to light. But it’s inaccurately portrayed by Issa and others. They leave out the fact that the leaked IRS information shows that the improper vetting of 501(c)(4) applicants targeted all “political action type organizations involved in limiting/expanding government, educating on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, social economic reform/movement.” Not only were Tea Party-ish words and phrases flagged but ‘progressive’ and wording that indicates the purpose of an org is to promote the Affordable Healthcare Act, among other liberal causes, were also flagged.The policy was implemented not by Obama but by staffers at one IRS office in Cincinnati. So Issa’s contention that the IRS was carrying out an attack on conservative groups at Obama’s direction is debunked. He knows what’s in the IRS memo that led to the scandal but misrepresents it to fan conservative emotion. It’s cynical and disingenuous.

        Can you back up your assertion that “so much that has come out in the hearings that support Issa’s Investigation”, or are you just doing what you accuse me of by parroting right wing talking points?

      • SecularHumanist199

        Liberal means open to new ideas. To be liberal means that one can listen to and evaluate facts and form opinions based on them.
        Conservatives on the other hand are impervious to facts. They have formed their opinions and no facts that demonstrate them to be wrong will change their minds.
        This is clearly demonstrated by their views on the very real climate change, and on trickle down economics, which has been clearly demonstrated to be an abject failure. Posting on a progressive site will NOT “convert” anyone unless you have unbiased facts with reputable sources to back them up. Just spouting right wing hate media talking points just makes you look foolish.

        Yes, you will see the made up accusations of lies that have been fabricated by the right wing hate machine to stir up their base ever since the black man won the presidency. Even before president Obama could be inaugurated there were hundreds of new “patriot” organizations calling for “taking their country back.” They don’t care about facts or reality in any way. All they care about is getting power back. As Mitch McConnell said, their number one priority was to make Obama a one term president.

      • deanne

        and we know how successful THAT was for them

      • SecularHumanist199

        The investigations are real, but the things they are investigating have no validity. The IRS “scandal” has been found by every unbiased examination to be a sloppy handling of things that the IRS was supposed to do, including investigating both liberal and conservative groups. There is NO there there.
        The events in Benghazi were tragic, but there was NO cover-up and there was NOTHING that could have been at the time. Every military and security leader who has been interviewed on the subject agrees. In fact, the conclusion of multiple investigations has been that at least a part of the reason for the attack WAS the you tube video. Republicans don’t seem to care about the more than 50 people who died in US embassies around the world during the Bush administration, in many cases explicitly because extra security requested was refused.

  • Demerkrat

    You forgot his witch hunt and lies about Fast and Furious. He knew perfectly well that nothing led back to Obama or Holder, but he wasted millions and continued to tell lies until the investigation vanished due to complete lack of evidence. Then came Benghazi and the IRS. He knew perfectly well that none of the BS he was spouting was true. It was all about politics. More millions wasted. More lies told. He’s seen the evidence. He knows there’s nothing there.

    • lj

      • SecularHumanist199

        Bull and Bull. Where is “all the money Obama wastes?” The annual deficit under President Obama has gone down every single year he has been in office. It increased every year Bush was in office. It is clear that the only ones who are fiscally irresponsible are republicans.

    Issa is the biggest political criminal in California. He also spearheaded the bullshit recall of Gray Davis then WEEPED on TV when he didn’t get his shot at governor.

  • slappymagoo

    Issa’s whole witch-hunt routine is a hiding-in-daylight smokescreen. HE knows he’s crooked, so by constantly accusing others of wrongdoing, he’s setting himself up as a martyr if the day comes that he’s investigated for ANYTHING! He’ll be lionized as The One Brave Soul Daring To Ask The Questions About Benghazi, or Fast & Furious, or The IRS “scandal” That No One Else Will Ask (mainly because he’s making up the fact that there’s a scandal to investigate in the first place). So by anyone investigating HIM, it has to be partisan tit-for-tat. He’s getting too close to the truth, by gum. The Obamabots knew he was daaaaayngerous and had to stop him cold, I’ll bet he winds up dead in a ditch.

    Therefore, like the Nuge insisting that Obama’s a traitor who’s out to get him, every day he’s not “got” by the gubmint is a day he proves he’s stronger, smarter, BETTER than the gubmint. Whether he’s investigated or not, every day he gets stronger by the actions or inactions pf the gubmint getting ot not getting him.

      think of it!!! no democratic( "commie/socialist") obstruction!!! just mr crook ISSA and his merry men privately ( see: republican love affair) spending and watching every dollar to the degree that they can FINALLY reveal to America that OBAMA is truly a martian muslim white-hater who was born in Zanzibar and is a radical Christian Nazi communist bent upon sharia law in the 49 states ( Hawaii excluded as they did him the favor of that forged certificate)
