Jihadists did not benefit from the 9/11 wars. They haven't made trillions of dollars from a "War on Terror" that turned out to be a "War OF Terror" instead. They never engaged in the most damaging espionage out of anyone to America, and they didn't lie about Saddam's WMDs straight to our House Oversight Committee, and provide fake intelligence to massacre over 1.5 million Iraqis. Jihadists aren't considered the most hostile and top spy threat by any level or category of the Western enterprise.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa celebrated the holidays this year by finally releasing his long-hyped report on the IRS ³scandal² in which he claimed the Obama administration took revenge on political opponents by targeting them for scrutiny of their tax status.

According to recent reports, Trey Gowdy claims that he has evidence of a “systematic, intentional” effort by the Obama administration to hide some revealing documents that may give Congress insight into the 2012 Benghazi attacks. “I have evidence that, not only are they hiding it, but there’s an intent to hide it,” the Republican House Member told Fox News. “I can’t disclose that evidence yet, but I have evidence that there was a systematic, intentional decision to withhold certain documents from Congress—and we’re just sick of it.” Gowdy made the comments in response to a question regarding why Secretary of State John Kerry had been subpoenaed by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. According to reports, California GOP Rep. Darrell Issa wants an explanation from Kerry about why the panel did not receive an email that revealed Ben Rhodes providing U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to link the Benghazi attacks to an anti-Muslim video. The shocking email was released by Judic .. ...
Jonathan Gruber, the Obamacare architect caught on camera calling Americans “stupid” agrees to testify before House Oversight Committee
Gruber agrees to be grilled by House Oversight Committee for ‘stupidity’ comments
Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, sent a letter on Thursday to controversial MIT professor Jonathan Gruber, the "architect" of Obamacare, calling on Gruber to testify before the committee at its December 9 hearing in Washington, D.C. about health…
In yet another deadly blow to the Obama White House, Darrell Issa, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman, is calling Jonathan Gruber, MIT economist and Obamacare architect to testify about “transparency failures and outright deceptions surrounding Obamacare.” Jonathan Gruber made comments referencing how the “basic lack of economic understanding of the American voter” would enable the health care act to pass. Gruber has gained notoriety this month after several videos show him saying that: Obamacare required “a lack of transparency” and “the stupidity of the American voter” if it was going to pass.

Eric Holder Uncensored: Fast and Furious Critics Can ‘Kiss My A**’ A new batch of emails from Attorney General Eric Holder were revealed on Friday, further demonstrating just how frustrated he became over Congress’ investigation into the “Fast and Furious” gun-walking scandal. In one Aug. 30 email, he wrote of his critics, “Some people can kiss my *** ” The newly released emails are a result of the roughly 64,000 documents the U.S. Department of Justice was ordered to hand over to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. President Barack Obama previously exerted executive privilege to keep the documents from being released. The Wall Street Journal on Friday published details on the latest batch of emails from the treasure trove of documents: By August 2011, the bungled operation had become a full-fledged scandal, forcing the reassignment of the head of ATF and the resignation of the U.S. Attorney in Arizona. In an Aug. 30 email, a deputy wrote to Mr. Holder and others that about ...

Thank God for Stephen Lynch! By Eric Ellis, CSALC District 4 Officer Since January 2011, when Republicans took control of the House of Representatives, we have heard two competing narratives from the House Oversight and Government Committee. I sum up the Republican narrative as follows. The USPS is losing money hand over fist due to high labor costs, six-day delivery and door-to-door delivery. As a result, we must eliminate Saturday mail delivery and slash postal employees' salaries and benefits by forty percent. We must replace door delivery with “secure storage” like clusterboxes. While the USPS used to provide services such as banking to its customers, no, we cannot have that, as that would be unfair to the private sector. The postal service's overpayment into the Civil Service Retirement System and the Federal Employees Retirement System is a myth. Even though the USPS pre-funds retiree health benefits 75 years in advance to the tune of $5.6 billion a year, which no one else has to do, so b ...

The narrative that nothing went wrong in Benghazi is now all but dead. It’s now becoming a question of allotting blame. Some of the names due to to testify on Benghazi are too big and too involved to be written off. Like the man who became the top diplomat in Libya after Stevens’ death. A top U.S. diplomat will testify Wednesday that as fighting raged in Benghazi, Libya, in the early morning hours of September 12, 2012, military officials in the region told a second rescue team preparing to deploy from Tripoli to Benghazi not to make the trip. In an interview with the House Oversight and Reform Committee last month, Greg Hicks, deputy chief of mission at the U.S. embassy in Libya during the attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, recalled his conversations with Libyan government officials and U.S. military leaders as he tried to get support to U.S. diplomatic and intelligence officials under attack in Benghazi.

Michael Botticelli understands all too well the effects alcohol and addiction have had, and continue to have, on the LGBT community.

"LGBT folks [have] often suffered the consequences of elevating alcohol and drug use, so my own recovery really helps me in a very deep and personal way to understand what we’re trying to accomplish here," he said. "I go back to my own experience and my own story and I think, ’Where were the missed opportunities along the way?’ " Even though data is sparse, according to one report from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) 20 to 30 percent of the LGBT community abuses substances, while only 9 percent of the general population does so. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention also states that LGBT individuals are more likely to use alcohol and drugs; have higher rates of substance abuse; are less likely to abstain from al ...

Spokesman says Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., accepts Secretary of State Kerry's offer to testify on Benghazi before the House Oversight Committee on June 12 - statement via
A letter (sent LAST year to the House Oversight Committee on Benghazi) from the family of Ambassador J. Chris Stevens: Chris Stevens died in the service of his country. He died doing what he loved most -- working to build bridges of understanding and mutual respect between the people of the United States and the people of the Middle East and North Africa. He was loved by many more Libyans than those who hated him for being an American. A few dozen fanatics penetrated his compound. More than 30,000 people in Benghazi demonstrated in protest over his death. Chris was successful because he embodied the traits that have always endeared America to the world -- a commitment to democratic principles, and respect for others, regardless of race, religion or culture. Chris regarded and liked each person he met as an individual. He respected their views, whether or not he agreed. One of his friends told us a tale that reflects his success on a small scale. Picnicking in the Libyan countryside, they met a local famil ...
