I think the General hit some peak when this gal shows up and says that someone in NC had discussed her running for a NC senate seat in the future. The General goes through and asks her various questions on topics to determine if she was good Republican or Democratic material. In the end (according to the story), he determines she can’t be a Republican or Democrat.

I’m guessing he determines that she’s pretty far out on various topics and starts to realize how public she is going to be in the future, and this whole relationship thing is going to come back and bite him. The fact that she ends up with lots of classified material on her home computer....makes her look like an idiot. The government will spend months trying to determine how she got the material and this alone will be an entire second mess to clean up.

–—————
The classified material could have been placed there by black hat govt hackers to incriminate her.


“The government will spend months trying to determine how she got the material and this alone will be an entire second mess to clean up.”

Which would keep everyone preoccupied with a sexy espionage story while an election is being stolen.

Just a thought.

David Petraeus was a hero, but lately he has been disappointing, to say the least. Infidelity, and then saying the protest got out of hand in Libya (rather than calling it terrorism). Perhaps saying it was a protest that got out of hand was to please the White House??

At least, on Friday, he said it was terrorism, and that’s what he initially thought it was. Maybe the hero Petraeus has come back to us.

Benghazi was obviously not according to plan; something went wrong. But that doesn’t mean the take-down of our top military leaders is not happening as originally planned, including Patraeus and his love affair.

0bama stole the SEALs thunder after the OBL raid. Now going after SEALs for divulging classified information to a gaming company (probably a set-up to demoralize them. It was perfectly acceptable for Team 0bama to compromise classified information to Sony pictures and Hollywood about the OBL raid, for a movie to hype 0bama). And don’t forget the Secret Service take down (sex scandal). Then the abandonment of SEALs in Benghazi by 0bama and he STILL has not specifically called that attack a “terrorist attack” (dare he say that!). Then comes the military brass take down by 0bama. Petraeus hit by a sex scandal and one woman involved had visited the White House on 3 prior occasions for ‘honey trap’ training.. And on and on.. I wonder when Eric Holder will be appointed to SCOTUS by 0bama for being held in contempt of Congress?.. Or maybe Van Jones even..

Maybe we should come up with a phrase to describe it : The compassionate purge?

After all Stalin shot those he wanted to get rid of as did other tyrants throughout history.

I thank God for Glenn Beck. This morning on the radio he was talking about establishing a presence in the White House press corps briefings. Great idea! I can’t stand to listen or watch the news anymore - even Fox. The media is so corrupt it is sickening! The only way you know what’s going on is to listen to the still small voice and pray pray pray.

Beck: “ The truth is not being told.”
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Beck did not tell much truth about election fraud this week. It's hard to tell the truth when one’s mouth is closed shut about the topic.

And....His not speaking up and out about Obama’s eligibility has been deafening in it silence for more than four years.

My conclusion: Beck is untrustworthy. Silence in the face of evil condones and enables evil.

I have no proof.. just a hunch. Betrayus ad in NYT was in what 2004? This babe shows up at the Kennedy School and does nothing but they invite the gen to speak.. voila.. they are introduced.
Who is more devious than dying deadhead ted and his junior suckup j effin k? Nobody hates the military more than these two eff ups. Teddy wants to punish the Clintons with Barky. So they come up with a tyipical Daddy seniorl scenario where they send the bimbo’s to Tampa, funded by move on , the dnc, and set them up.
Why else would kerry and whitehouse (d.r.i.) be funneling money to the twin in trouble? The k kids are plants to take out the military and it has The evil K word written all over it.

Would any of us put it past Axelsleaze and his bodyguard of easy, cheesy, roundheeled bimbettes to find a shiksa to run at the general and knock him off his feet? Has always been easier for a woman to accomplish than the other way around.

The KGB has always been a champion of honey-trap management. I'm morally sure Bill Clinton dove into one in Moscow when he was supposedly a Rhodes scholar, back when; and John Barron's books are stiff with examples.

I know of another incident when KGB ran a guy seducer-type at a couple of Canadian Forces women, back in the 1960's, to induce them to defect so KGB could access their knowledge of a certain developing naval technology. Both women went over the wall -- for one guy. I'm impressed.

And....Behave in an untrustworthu manner.

By the way, the Marxists are smart enough not to go after Beck and his very immediately family. No, no. A cousin will “disappear”,or a unexplained shooting of a close friend or relative of one of his employees.

Please remember that Michele Malkin’s niece “disappeared” and remember that Lieutenant Quarles Harris, Jr. was shot in the head the night before he was to testify. The Marxists didn't go after Brietbart’s coroner. No, they poisoned his assistant instead.

For the countries idiots entertainment and theater for you. For the rest of us this is a setup to discredit the military hierarchy and to finally allow ubango to replace these untrustworthy old school white war mongers with his own brand of radicals who are UN friendly and he can trust when he needs them to deploy against the populace.

“SEALs thunder”

Well, except for the ones that ‘died.’

SEALs really don’t give a tiny violin about what others think.

Beck should just cut to the chase and tell everyone its time for war and to do just what Israel is doing, prepare, take shelter, mobilize and await orders.

Not that I am saying Beck is leadership material, far from that but he has a loyal fan base. Glenn Beck is like a tire repair shop down the road from a roofing nail factory. He keeps everyone on the edge of their seats but at the same time dishes out sedatives to prevent his rhetoric from being taken seriously, so I don’t take him seriously anymore.

I’m not a fan to begin with, but Beck disgusted me after the election when he said “God s##ks.”

I know he thought he was being edgy and funny, but it was blasphemous, and pretty repellent.

Thanks for agreeing. I had one Beck fan twist himself into pretzels trying to justify and defend it.

You’re welcome-

Beck should be more thankful and respectful of what God has given him-I don’t have anywhere near what he has and I am thankful daily.
I have also learned to not criticize God-yes, I may ask Him why something happened etc. but to say what Beck said is something I have learned not to do as I always want to be in His Good Graces-
Very very bad on Beck’s part, especially because he talks about faith so much. He needs to apologize to Him and us as he just became part of the Christian bashing crowd and I am tired of my God being disrespected...

And it isn’t humor-simply because it isn’t funny.
