Peter King says that Petraeus should still testify and the House should still call on him to do so because an investigation without Petraeus’ testimony would be incomplete:

    Peter —

    He MUST testify – not should

    BUT

    He won’t !

    Peter – YOU have been PUNKED!

    • capelady

      He has top secret security clearance and cannot testify as a citizen without special dispensation from the military. Do you think Panetta will cooperate with that?

      • Orangeone

        Nope. It’s all part of the plan to protect Barky Boy from impeachment.

      • maynardb50

        He may plead the fifth or something else inane, but he is not immune to a congressional subpoena.

    • jlbs

      He “bit the dust” for 0……another one down. He wasn’t playing along when Benghazi was in the news, so 0 had to get rid of him. I don’t know how, because I don’t think the same way that our dictatorial administration does, but I believe Petraeus was threatened in some way. Whatever it was, it had to be big to throw away a career such as he had. I pray he stays safe.

  • anyonebutbarry2012

    agree, also so shouldn’t hillary, but she conveiently won’t be there next week too. so is boehner going to ignore all this like he did F&F???

      Can’t think about Boehner w/o thinking of Zo’s last video. LOL

    • Orangeone

      And Hitlary is also stepping down in January. Subpoena that b!tch and do it now! If Issa had moved faster on Fast and Furious and issued these subpoenas on Benghazi before the election it might have had an impact.

      I hear you.

    • freenca

      It may play out much differently than we think. The electorate are really peeved this time. They may demand that our electees investigate these highly suspect occurences and keep the pressure upon them in such a way that they will have NO other choice than to get to the bottom of it! Keep writing and demanding full accountings of the failures of this very corrupt administration.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZSKETECBAFDEAUOUML4ICTKLAA Alex

    Anybody else think the administration leaked Petraeus’s affair to stop him from testifying on Benghazi? This reeks to high heaven.

    This will hurt our military’s morale.

    • Orangeone

      Like the lack of receiving their absentee ballots didn’t?

      • PVG

        Touche’!

      • jlbs

        I think that is dispicable (sp?) not allowing our military to receive their ballots in time. And I just read something about the ballots that were returned came late and so won’t be counted. I tell you, this administration has every angle covered!

        • Orangeone

          They had years to plan, the unions and illegals to help, and intimidate by the DOJ, NBPP and the NAACP

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/HGBPWCGEYKYUKNHZKCB43TZQEU linda weil

      The question I have is…Did he REALLY have an affair…or was that all staged.

      • jlbs

        I have thought of that, as well.

      • jrt1031

        When Clinton had his affair in the oval office and then lied under oath………..the democrats hold him up as a poster boy for their party and everything is tollerated. There was no affair. it was made up like the youtube video…… its all corruption and coverup. But we now live in a socialist dictator system so this is the new norm.

    • Sandra123456

      But how will this stop him from testifying? How will it stop him from being called to testify? Congress could subpeona me if they thought I knew anything or you.

      What gives he can’t testify? Testify or we will stop your pension.

      Before the affair he could be blackmailed into not testifying or lying, but now…?

    • Galatiansch2vs20

      One of my parents suggested maybe he was threatened with them telling about the affair if he didn’t play ball so he pre-empted them and announced it himself and resigned.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZSKETECBAFDEAUOUML4ICTKLAA Alex

        Ditto.

  • 911Infidel

    Yep. Compel him to testify. Don’t let the Obaminites get away with anymore coverups. You got suboena power. Use it.

  • deeme

    ARe you saying by resigning he doesn’t have to testify, because if that’s the case I bet the whole think is made up..They don’t want him to slip and tell the truth ..This is the lie that will never die..

  • Orangeone

    He needs to be dishonorably discharged and stripped of federal and military retirement benefits and medical insurance. Let him enjoy ObamaCare!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZSKETECBAFDEAUOUML4ICTKLAA Alex

  • opinionatedhermit

    The Obama Administration has said repeatedly they will provide the American people with all information as they know it.

    President Obama has said on several occasions there is no one more concerned with making this happen.

    Because of this, I wouldn’t hesitate a moment using the full Power of Congress to help our good President fulfill his promise…..

    • PVG

      We need to write, fax, email, and call our congress people and make this happen.

    • freenca

      In that case, he is admitting to total and utter idiocy! The smartest man that ever lived? Nah. We have to continue to put up a clarion call for public disclosure and get Congress to live up to their pledges to uphold our CONSTITUTION and BILL OF RIGHTS!!!

      I suspect he gave the order.

  • Sandra123456

    This seems like such a non sequitur or a “what,,,?” thinking. Just because Petraeus had an affair that didn’t make him stupid about Benghazi. Why wouldn’t he testify?

        Remember how mysterious Vince Foster’s death was during the Clinton administration?

        • freenca

          This has made me think of him too!

  • justright

    How it would play out depends on whether Petraeus resigned to fall on the sword for Barry or whether he was blackmailed over the affair, and he resigned to free himself to fight Barry and his gang. The question is whether he feels he has an obligation to stand up for the lives, safety, a sense of duty and regards for the code of honor of his charges in the agency?

    • conwis

      I pray it was the ‘freeing to fight Barry’ scenario. O did wait a day from submission of the resignation to accept it. Maybe that indicates something, maybe not.

  • INEEDACOUNTRY

    I am truly having a hard time believing what I am hearing and what the news agencies are asking the American people to believe.

    Always has a CHICAGO style STINK to it, NO?

    Drone fired on, and covered up, until after election???
    REALLY?
    Did David really have an affair?
    REALLY?
    Or is this a way for O to take him out and make him the fall guy, and DAVID gets his retirement money? I nver understood whay he even went to the CIA.

    Ever notice the timing of things and how it always saves Oh (gov Chris on Hur Sandy?), or he never give pressers to answer questions on his BS.
    Oh NEVER cared about those people in NJ or NY, has he sent any massive GOV help to save them yet?

    GONNA BLOW UP ON …..US….not O-BLAME-O, the man is untouchable?????
    WHAT and WHO is protecting him? ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, CURRENT TV….

    This David Petreus thing stinks to HIGH heaven, and Obummer is should be on thin ice yet he seems to be gaining in power?

    As I see this tonight David may have had an affair in Afganistan with this woman, and it ended or it did not.

    Either way, if true, it should have kept him from becoming CIA director, especially if he was just hiding it.

    IF FBI started investigation recently because of BENGHAZI, and fouud out it happened or started BEFORE he because director, well see, that makes this look really bad for FBI, WH, CIA, Military, Press, you name it.

    And then there is the election, and the timing of all this, is just UNREAL.

    ALL this to protect OBUMMER?

    Really?

    I predict some EVEN bigger relevations soon, and it won’t be funny anymore for the WH.
    But KING O will just sluff it off and jump back on the jet after his commands to us, and disappear to go do something and let us all worry about our country.

    I PREDICT A LONG VACTION COMING TO HAWAII to do some golfing, what do you think?

    I am with RUDY G, this all is going to get so big he can’t stop it, and it will all come down on his head, and our worst fears about…whatever, gridlock, PHYSICAL CLIFF, etc, will paleto the upset blacks who just elected this man in triump.

    IF Mitt had made it, then OH-uh-oh could have been shown as the deceiver and buffoon he really is, now he is PREZI-ELECT, and people will die defending him, and OH wil not care !!!! I assure you….

    This is going to be a huge mess, and of coourse he is flying off on AF-1, after giving his
    campaingn speech about taxing the rich, again, GEEZ, PEOPLE.

    These college kids who just got the right to vote and liberals who don’t care we collaspe, or our history, and of course the free stuff crowd, do not want OBAME pushed out.

    WE may have to push him out. but who will push him out….Democraps in Senate?

    Heck no, Harry will save him, no matter what O did and covered up.

    I hear David will Lawyer up now, who will he cover for?
    Military can re-instate him (at Os request, what deals have been made to stay quiet?).

    You know he went against the WH in OCT, after lying for them in Sept (at whose request?).

    Can David really be that stupid or was the info with O and he was using it to COVER things up.

    HOW O kept the lid on this as we all watched, for 2 months, will go down in history as our greatest shame in the MEDIA of course. A lot of knew from day one this was so rotten, and Mitt should have pursued some, but he was quashed?

    This should make NIXON resigning look like a small event, unless O has some power we are not aware of?

    Being black does not make him invincible, but it won’t be pretty with the young blacks who will see this as the white guys taking the PRESIDENCY away from the rightful owner.

    ALL THIS INFO SHOULD HAVE COME OUT BEFORE THE ELECTION !!!!!!

    Brian WIlliams (NBC) wants to shut down RUSH,
    I WANT TO SHUT DOWN BRIAN and make/show him to be responsible for all this mess for not reporting it !!!

    The info was there all all along.
    I am hoping DAVID freed himself up to testify, with complet honesty, and take that punk down, with his own dirty actions and words.
    May cost him his retirement, but he can write a book about this all, WOW.

    OH, what a tangled web we weave, when we first practice to deceive…..

    • Constance

      Since so many citizens (people like us) are so educated on these things and will not rest until we get some answers, this charade will only go on so long. There will come a time when even the magical powers of the dems and the repubs won’t be able to stop it. It is all a house of cards, held together by lies. It won’t stand. I have absolute faith in that. It may not be next year, but it will be long before this man’s second term of office is over. He’s going down, and so are all the rest with him. It will be the citizens that demand it.

      • freenca

        Good say, Constance. I agree. This situation will take on a life of it’s own, they all need to answer for this !!

  • Samwise Gamgee the 3rd

    Well, no.

    I must respectfully disagree.

    David Petraeus was lauded as a great general (which he is) so he doesn’t need to do that moral courage, honor, straight-talking, and duty thing any more, certainly not testifying before the representatives of the people in Congress.

    /sarc

    (Actually, he should.)

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/HGBPWCGEYKYUKNHZKCB43TZQEU linda weil

    I’ve heard that he should be charged for treason so many times, but WHO and What must be done to actually do this and complete it successfully?

    • Samwise Gamgee the 3rd

      Who should be charged for treason?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/HGBPWCGEYKYUKNHZKCB43TZQEU linda weil

        any and ALLinvolved in the Libya coverup of the massacre!

        • Samwise Gamgee the 3rd

          Coverup = Treason ?

          Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

          [emphasis added]

          Lying after the fact does not equal Treason under the law, unless it was done to benefit the US’s enemies rather than, say, Barack Obama’s campaign. So no, it wouldn’t be Treason.

          And the President not deploying military forces, if that’s what happened, would not equal Treason either, unless one could prove he did this to aid the nation’s enemies.

          Since he’s launched many attacks against jihadi forces, there’s no way you could make this stick.

          If he or a cabinet officer of the administration perjure themselves, then there’s an argument for impeachment … which would be as far as it goes because the Senate isn’t convicting, that’s for sure.

          The best you can hope for is a thorough House investigation, and that the American voters will take the results under consideration for the next elections in 2014 and 2016.

          • jlbs

            But supplying aid to our enemies is treason. Ever since 0 took office, he has been setting up the Middle East for a takeover by the Muslim Brotherhood, and he succeeded. (Now we can all understand why Rush wanted him to fail) This takeover is a threat to us as well, because it emboldens the MB to take over the US. I’m afraid that time will be here before we know it, especially with 0 remaining in the White House.

          • kong1967

            …..”or adheres to their enemies….”

            I believe that Obama is funnelling arms from Libya to Syria, and using Al Qeda elements to do it. We are aiding Al Qeda, a sworn enemy. Yeah, it might be a stretch. But Obama also failed to do his duty as CIC in order to protect his illegal activities….which cost the lives of 4 Americans. In my eyes that’s treason, and surely is a crime under whatever name and deserves impeachment at very least.

            You are exactly right that the Senate will not convict no matter how heavy the evidence is or how bad Obama’s crimes are. Corruption at it’s worst.

          • Galatiansch2vs20

            How about an order to stand down which aided the enemies in killing our people in Benghazi?

            How about aiding Iran in furthering their goal to get a nuclear weapon by refusing to decisively take out their underground bomb-making material factory and trying to hold Israel back from doing it too? Obama keeps wanting to talk to the dictator in Iran and a key advisor of his, Valerie Jarrett was reportedly born in Iran.

            How about working to aid the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt, a terrorist organization who are waging jihad against us by attempts funnelling money to them?

        • cabensg

          Holder’s inaction on Black Panther intimidation at voting polls. Holder taking Arizona to court for upholding federal immigration laws. Holder does get his orders from Obama. Obama’s breaking the immigration law by giving amnesty to those born here. Obama supporting our part in the war in Libya without Congressional consent. The list is so damn long it would take an hour to read them in their entirety. He11 there’s even stuff we’ve forgotten about. It would take a lawyer to sift through it all to see what would stick and what wouldn’t. But the comment about Reid in the Senate was correct.

    • kong1967

      Obama? Harry Reid is the reason why it can’t be done. He tables Republican bills and won’t even let them come up for a vote. Then he tells the public that Republicans haven’t offered any ideas.

      Reid would laugh at any attempt to impeach or try Obama for treason. I believe the Senate has to convict Obama of it. When you have a party as corrupt as the Democrat party is now (with Obama, Reid and Pelosi), as long as they retain one house it’s impossible to charge Obama with anything. He could tell us point blank that his goal is to destroy the United States and it wouldn’t go anywhere.

          Lol, that was great….and probably has some truth to it.

  • notebene

    That’s the whole point of the resignation! Just like Fast and Furious, this abysmal administration will get rid of, or scapegoat anyone to not tell the truth. Funny how nobody gave a rip when Clinton had an affair in the oval office and felt that the GOP politicized that, but the head of the CIA does it and an immediate resignation? Liberal zombies buy the hypocrisy hook, line, and sinker! Democrats are so pro-women that their hero, Slick Willie Clinton, is a known rapist! Oh what an enlightened group of zombies they are.

  • sue-marie

    This White House has dirt on everyone through the FBI. The Hoover days are still here….don’t think they left us. This was a warning shot across the bow to Petraeus to keep his mouth shut. He will have to be supeonaed and then convinced he and his family will be protected. This is the big time guys…they don’t play around. We may never find out the whole truth in Benghazi like the secret arms deal that was going on through secret channels and more. This could take down Obama’s Presidency so they will fight with everything they have. We will see how good the GOP is….if they have the stomach to go up against Axelrod and Co.

    • kong1967

      Considering that Boehner said he’s not going to fight Obamacare any more, I’d say the GOP is weak and doesn’t have the stomach for it. Obama will get away with it just like he’s gotten away with skirting many laws. The GOP expresses outrage but doesn’t follow through to do anything about it.

          Yep.

      • cabensg

        We can’t paint them all with the Boehner, Cantor brush. I don’t understand how but there are others who might be able to continue on. Issa sure hasn’t let up even though it appears he hasn’t gotten any help as far as communicating what he’s doing. In fact there’s no communication at all directly from the House to the American people. It’s as if when they get to Washington they only talk to each other. In this day of communication we should be hearing daily from our Rep’s what their doing and thinking. Their websites are nothing but commercials for their next election. You can get updates on their votes but who the hell can understand the bill they just voted on. I watched the weekly Republican updates a couple of times but it was like watching a campaign speech. Sending an email just goes to the office where some gopher either reads it or not, passes it along or not, there’s no way to know if your communication is getting through to anyone. The only reason I keep sending them is because if makes me feel better for about a second.

        • kong1967

          I sure hope there are some Republicans that carry on the fight against Obamacare. The problem is that Boehner is the House leader. I don’t know how much they need him to coninue….or not. I’m not even sure what can be done, but I don’t want to see them give up.

Oh, we found out about this Republican engaging in inappropriate behavior right before the election and it’s an emergency to do something about it now, although we find out Dems knew about it for a year.

    This is bogus. I doubt there ever was an affair. I have a feeling he was forced to resign to give him an out in order to protect Obama. Had to have a reason. Say your grandma died. Nah, that’s no good. Say you had 4 flat tires. No, that wont’ work. I got it. Say you had an affair which is conduct unbecoming an officer. Yeah, that’s it.

    Obama and Holder have prosecuted and persecuted whistle blowers , they are no longer protected under the law .
    So if Petraeus tells what he know he could be in big trouble .

    I hope he honor compels him to do the right thing for those 4 dead Americans.

    And where are the embassy staff that were saved by the Navy seals ? Has any one heard a word from them ?

    The Lizard King strikes again ,, Look at the time line of this event ,, Petraeus wasn’t going along with 44 , so he had to go .
    Mitt dropped the ball after the first debate on the Benghazi (Act of War) ,, after that point he just went downhill ,, but ,, he sure did look Presidential ,, as he LOST !

    “…After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours,” Petraeus said in a letter to colleagues, explaining his decision to step down…”

    http://www.cnn.com/2012/11/10/us/petraeus-cia-resignation/index.html

    If we are to believe that Petraeus had an affair “after being married for over 37 years, then this affair began sometime in 2011 prior to being unanimously confirmed as the next Director of the CIA by the U.S. Senate on June 30, 2011.

    I find this TIMING odd especially when he was just about to testify before the House on the CIA’s Benghazi response and I find the TIMING to be very beneficial to the Obama administration’s horrendous response to the terrorist attack.

    Also based on the CNN article (link above), “According to a congressional aide familiar with the matter, the House and Senate intelligence committees weren’t informed that there was an FBI investigation into Petraeus until Friday.” – WHY?

      Many agree with you. The polls all showed a Romney landslide, only to be told millions didn’t turn out to vote? No.
      WAS IT STOLEN?
      Written by Dave in Fla
      Thursday, 08 November 2012

      [Note by JW: We are being asked to believe that Romney got close to three million fewer votes in 2012 than John McCain got in 2008. That's not possible. This election is a fraud. I don't know exactly how - rigging voting machines, hacking tabulation software, not counting military absentee ballots, whatever. What I do know is that it is totally beyond believability and into the realm of ridiculously absurd that Romney actually got any fewer votes than McCain in 2008, much less millions fewer. Thus the answer to Dave's question must be Yes.]

      I hate going down a birther road, but yes I believe the election was stolen, and the implications of that are very bad.

      First of all, Obama received 10 million less votes than he did in 2008. The part that is unbelievable is that Romney received 3 million less votes than McCain. At the end of the day, Obama won in the 4 critical swing states by 500,000 votes.

      But it is worse than that. We can look at who voted. By examining the number of Independents and their preference shift among actual voters, we know that 5 million Independents changed their votes from Obama to Romney. So Romney started the day 2.5 million votes ahead of where McCain was in 2008.

      This means that 5.5 million Republican voters are not accounted for.

      They didn’t show up at the polls, or their votes were not counted. We know now that no subgroup of the coalition decided to sit out. So the current attempts to blame the Social Conservatives are stupid. All of our groups showed up to vote at the rates they did in 2008. For this to be true, over 10% of Republicans needed to decide not to vote this year, who did vote in 2008.

      Does that make any sense?

      In fact, it is even worse, we know for a fact that heavy GOP counties were swamped all day. We watched all day as, e.g., Pasco County Florida was showing huge increases in GOP voters over the 2008 numbers.

      In Virginia, with 69% of the precincts in, Romney held a 6% lead. Yet once a small number of counties reported, that lead disappeared.

      If the vote drop off occurred, it occurred in a very small number of counties. It was not visible nationwide.

      I contend that you can not get a 10% drop off in GOP turnout without it being noticeable during the GOTV effort, measures of enthusiasm in polling, or visibly lower turnout in GOP leaning precincts.

      For anyone who doesn’t want to think that the Obama campaign would engage in such blatant election fraud, contemplate this. These are the same people who ran Fast and Furious without regard for the cost in human lives, turned off their credit card verification system to allow fraudulent donations, and allowed four Americans in Libya to die because it was politically inconvenient. Do you really think that massive election fraud is something they wouldn’t do?

      If this is true, then we have some hard things to consider.

      First of all, we are now needlessly fracturing our coalition pointing fingers at people for not voting. Second, we are making an assumption about the make up of the American public that is not true. We are going to modify our party and message to appeal to a group of individuals who do not represent the majority of the population.

      Most difficult to believe is that we are living in Venezuela where our elections are merely for show, and the people in charge of the Governments decide who will win elections. We become wards of the State, which is the aim of those who stole this election.

      So how can this be proved?

      I am going to start by looking at a few key counties in Florida. What I want to see is the voter registration numbers by party, and then compare them to the actual votes received. Theoretically, if this were to be done for all counties in Florida, we could see where the fraud occurred.

      Comparing the votes Romney received to the strike lists would show that in specific counties Romney received something like 50% of the Republican vote (picking a number out of the air) while we know that nationwide he received 95% of the Republican vote.

      To really get to the answer, we would need to get the registration books, which might be possible through Freedom of Information act. Those show who actually voted, by name, and their party.

      The media will not pursue this. This will take citizen journalists working in every state.

    I should have read this thread 1st. Most of my comments can be seen in this one. I feel vindicated. If you think that General Petraeus isn’t a military man think again, and the wife of a 4 star General is too. Look at Colin Powell, in the Bush administration, he was
    one of the spokes persons on WMDs. You see it in his face, and his speech that he was towing the line. They are loyal, that is what they are taught, what they believe, and how they act.

    DICK-tator head, we thank you lib-turds who voted for him.
    Special thanks to those who stayded home and did not vote, you are even worse idiots.

    Please don’t tell me OH-uh-oh did not have him by the balls.

    DAVID was one of the idiots who was telling CONGRESS it was the VIDEO after OBAMA said later it was “and act of terror”.

    Then CIA said it did not refuse any help….whaaaaaa????

    SO David risked it all to lie to the American public to protect CHICAGO O?

    I AM NOT BUYING THAT !!!!!!

    Man. are Americans getting stupid to take this all like sheep.

    And why are CIA people falling all along the 4 years, and
    now Military people getting stepped on?

    I hear half the military vote went for O?

    REALLY???

    Does this include the ones never made it or never counted?

    HUGE scandal coming on vote counting, get ready for it.

    O still won, but it made him look like big winner early.

    Oh is a “tyrant”, PERIOD, we have to accept it, it is his way or the highway.

    Boehner needs to be fired as speaker as soon as possible, but I say let taxes rise for everyone.
    Let O have his way. (let your vote go as no-votes)

    Onlly way to get to the bottom so we can build things back…..

    I expect within a year O will crash and burn.

    • 1endtimes2020

      It’s too bad Romney didn’t at least ask Obama what Obama had to say about what happened to Stevens, during the debate.
      So many people who watched did not know anything about it.
      It could have opened up a real can of worms for Obama, and Romney could have won. Maybe Romney had bad advisors concerning that topic.

  • freenca

    The hoisting on his own petard, to use an old phrase, is about to begin. They have pi##-off the congress, FINALLY!! Testify, he must! and Hitlery too, they knew what was in the offing and were possibly TOLD what to do, commanded, by the CIC to do nothing. This has to be brought to the fore-front. And this dispicable practice of throwing the underlings UNDER the proverbial bus has to be exposed. They all must be examined and cross-examined in congress, with public purview, to see the ones that tell the truth, and the ones that are lying too. This is not as simple as it seems and must be ferreted out!!

    Barry, always finds a way to get information on anyone, so he can stop them from winning an election, or now from finding out the truth about Benghazi. Benghazi, was also hushed up the ENEMIES OF THE STATE. This was planned and organized by Barry, as the FBI, has been told to dig up any dirt on the one person who knew what really happened and that one person is Petreaus. Now the ENEMIES OF THE STATE, is focusing on Petreaus, and his affair, to take the light of day shinning on Benghazi. Another factor John Kerry, is in charge of the investigation, what a laugh!

    God, has a plan and these people will pay in the end, as they are liars, cheaters and thieves. who will do anything to turn this country into a Godless America. I will die defending my right to love and believe in our Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ!!!

    He made a mistake in his life, who cares. I pray he can work it out with his wife since he is an admirable man. We don’t know how many well known unfaithful people exist. At least he had the intestinal fortitude to admit his mistake. Bill Clinton is a prime example of adultery….and he never left office and Clinton did it multiple times, Petraeus only did it once.

    • 1endtimes2020

      He regrets it and doesn’t deserve to be made a patsy for Obanaladen.

  • TJinNJ

    With Israel now returning fire at Syria, could Obamaladen’s plan to arm al-aqaeda in Syria via Libya to supposedly get rid of Assad really be about attacking Israel…It’s the PERFECT excuse…we screwed up, we thought the weapons would be used against Assad. How could we have known they’d use them on Israel…CAUSE THEY’RE TERRORISTS YOU TREASONOUS PUKE…

    • 1endtimes2020

      Don’t worry about Israel. God is on their side….Bible quote “I will bless those who bless my people and curse those who curse my people”If Obama carries out his desire to split up Jerusalem, God will split up the USA—it’s written in the Book of Revelation.

        Thanks………… I needed those words of wisdom right about now….

        • 1endtimes2020

          Thank you, also. You know, I like to look at the big picture, which is this; we are all here for a short time, comparing to eternity of trillions and trillions of years, without end. 1st Corinthians 2: 9 is my favorite Bible quote. “Eye has not seen, nor ear has heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, what things God has prepared for those who love him.” Jesus said where He is there are a lot of mansons. He is preparing one for all those who bellieve He died for our sins and obey His commandments–and He added, after His resurrection, the most important is that we love each other as He loves His church.
          He also said “I am the way, the life abd truth. NO ONE goes to the Father but by me.”
          There are many devil’s disciples in the world, run by Satan —so far, until Christ returns to banish him from Earth for 1,000 years—and Jesus said we need to spread the Good News but if people don’t want to change from their evil ways, we are to stay away from them.
          End Times are coming soon, as we follow modern events that coincide with the Book of Revelation.
          We need to be ready, because Jesus said He will return like a thief in the night—and that means we don’t know when our own end comes suddenly, not just the battle of Armaggedon
          Jesus said, ‘when you see these things happen, do not be afraid. These things must happen before the Son of Man returns—to judge the livng and the dead—image the seas giving up its dead—what a sight That would be, huh..

    Can someone explain to me why its a breech of contract for Petraeous to have an affair and yet Clinton carried on an affair in the oval office and then lied under oath during investigation and he was somehow protected and seen has a hero and has gone on the lead the democrat movement without the smidge of a black eye. This Petraeous drama is another drama coverup story to deflect from the truth of Benghazi and yet once again the media protects and covers the liberal movement.

    • Suzyqpie

      Sure I’ll explain it. The MSM has all of the power. I don’t care about the viewership numbers. 50% of the populace gets their info on the MSM. Their narrative, however deceitful, carries the day. That same 50% are the looter/plunderer class who have 0bama phone [sic], food stamps, home heating oil, sect 8 housing, medicaid, anchor babies, free contraceptives, free abortion (I know, not free paid for by someone else, play the game here) basically the Victim. they dont remember, if they ever knew about Clinton and the blue dress. They have never heard of Benghazi, Libya, or Gen Petraeous. They don’t know, they don’t care, so what. This, I am sorry to report, is the New America. Looters and Plunderers.

    Petreaus should be in the brig until he testifies. After testifying he should be returned to the brig and brought up on charges that any other member of our military would face. The only way my opinion of him changes is if he tells everything he knows about Benghazi. I cut this piece of 0 toilet paper zero slack. He’s a worm. I’m sick of hearing how honorable he is and how he’s too honest to lie. LOOK AT WHAT HE ADMITTED TO FOLKS.. Sorry General, but you don’t impress me a bit for the last 3 or 4 years

    • 1endtimes2020

      Under normal circumstances, his affair would never have come out. He’s being used to cover up Obama, and diverting attention away from the coming hearings.
      The GOP and the public should bombard the White House demanding all who were making decisions at the time of Ambassador Steven’s cries for help be required to testify. I’d like to see the people who voted for Obama look sheepish at what they did.
