Tag: Eric Cantor
By Corinthian Scales, Section News
via The Detroit News
Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Brighton, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, suggested on Sunday that the White House may not have been completely forthcoming with Congress about the Petraeus affair.
GMAFB. Did this guy lose his 5 year career with the FBI because they switched to mechanical pencils so they didn't need him around to sharpen #2 yellows, or what? No, Rep. Rogers. The better question is, Eric Cantor.
But when he was given the David Petraeus scandal on a silver platter by an FBI whistleblower, more than a week before the election, Cantor turned the information over to the FBI, the same agency which had been conducting the cover-up on Obama's behalf. Indeed, this cover-up is why the whistleblower came to Cantor. The predictable result of going to the FBI, headed by Robert Mueller, who was re-appointed by Obama, is that nothing was done and Obama won the election.
This wouldn't be a first. Cantor also went out of his way to protect Obama friendly "establishment" players, too. To kick swamp slime up one more notch, there's also the Lieawatha Warren, and Holly Petraeus, connection too. Why, this whole damn election, with all the voter fraud that went on, is beginning to look like the biggest charade ever perpetrated on the American public by the alleged "Two Party" system.
Evidently, somehow the powers-that-be behind the curtain of a back-room discussion have managed to craft some sort of deal to stave off an alleged default. But first, let's watch Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) out-argue Senator John Kerry (D-MA) in a floor speech from last Saturday.

Fred Upton, a Republican from Michigan, is insisting he is worthy to chair the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and has written an Op Ed in the Washington Examiner titled, "Rep. Fred Upton: A new majority for America." In it, he describes what he will do if in fact he is chosen as chair, and reiterates his manly chainsaw approach to the budget, and unfortunately, uses the words, "shine the spotlight" on the Obama-Pelosi regulatory policies.
Hang on, check the spotlight bulb first, is it the government-mandated type?
