Democrats' Wasteful Torture Report

Let's add to the 40 million dollars for the bogus report to the 81 million dollars, our government paid a company founded by two former military psychologists who urged waterboarding and other coercive methods against suspects secretly imprisoned by the CIA and Department of Defense was paid $81 million for work with the agency's interrogation program from 2005 until 2009. REALLY? Reckon a a local loan shark or gangsta, could have offered some practical advice... with a power point presentation for... say a paltry 1 million in cash. The nagging question in my mind is why do I give a tinkers darn about the comfort or life of a terrorist? Answer: NONE. My sympathy and allegiance lie 100% with victims of these savages. The dead and injured on 9/11, at the Boston Marathon, the family of the beheaded grandmother in Oklahoma, the beheaded hostages, the decimated, ancient Christian and Jewish communities in the middle east. Terrorists? Do whatever is necessary to get the information we need. Tell me... why is KSM still breathing? No trial by military tribunal? Is he in "counciling" for his PTS from being waterboarded:? The cur should be long dead.
This is yet another "report"...."investigation", which is not worth the paper it's written on, and certainly not worth the expense. Not one of the "operators" was interviewed. None of those who were in charge. Sound familiar? Bengazi report.... not one single survivor, not one person who was on the ground, was interviewed. Yet, there was offically no wrong doing or deception. The IRS "investigation" of targeting of political opposition. Not one of the victims of this misconduct was interviewed, not ONE, yet the IRS was exonerated, and Obama smugly announces that not one sliver of wrong doing was found. With the release of this report, we've been "Grubered" again. Outrageous!
Oh, GROAN! The last "devastating" shutdown was so bogus! What was it... 47% of the government. Every entitlement check went out. Government employees got paid. Doesn't the government shut down for every holiday, snow days, etc., the the world doesn't end. Pass a darned funding bill for two or three months, then go home! Stop hanging trinkets and pork on yet another onmibus spending bill through September! Idiots! WORK ON A REAL BUDGET, until newly elected representatives and senators arrive, and then GET TO WORK. If the government has to shut down for a couple of weeks, then let the bureaucratic doors stay shut until after the first of the year. There IS a reason We the People don't have a very high opinion of anyone inside the Beltway. Darnit! We're paying through the nose for your nonsense!
The release of this report is so wrong on so many levels. Number ONE is that this blatantly partisan committee did not interview one of the operatives involved. Did not have any input from a single Republican. Much like the Bengazi investigation and the IRS "investigation", in which no one on the ground in Libya was interviewed, not ONE, likewise with the bogus investigation of the IRS, NONE of the targeted victims was interviewed! It is outrageous! Feinstein is a disgrace! Corrupt political hack!
Amen! If they are to have a headquarters at all, then let it be Zimbabwe, Mexico, Libya, etc. Not much night life or desirable venues for cocktail parties, but hey, the "diplomats" have had a pretty good run. Am all in favor of these worthless parasites pulling out their laptops and communicating through SKYPE, conference calls, or email. Who owes any of them fancy digs, lavish entertainment, or any permanent venue at all?
The report released by the Intelligence Committee seemed eerily familiar. None of the operatives were interviewed.... not one. Yet it was proudly released as fact and an example of transparency.. Remember the Benghazi report.... not one of the operatives was interviewed. Remember the investigation of IRS targeting of Administration political opponents. Not ONE of the victims of this harassment was interviewed, yet a report was issued, declaring no wrong doing. "Not a sliver". We've been Grubered over and over again, just didn't have the proper verb. The Administration and members of the ruling class inside the beltway, absolutely DO think that the American people are STUPID, Gullible, and actually believe their preposterous B$.
Reid and Pelosi ever closer to the door. Of course, Pelosi IS representative of her constituency, beloved, and has her seat in the House, until she chooses to retire. She will be replaced by a clone. Reid, on the other hand, may be done in Nevada, if Republicans will run a well vetted and credible candidate. Maybe that will happen.
absolutely right! Still, currently, Jeb Bush is leading the polls for the Republican nomination. The Republican establishment will push for yet another luke warm, progressive Republican, and we CAN lose all of the gains, as well as the Presidency in '16. Unlike the Democrat party, there is a deep "bench" of very qualified, possibilities, who could maintain this enormous momentum, and still hold to conservative/constitutional values.... Gov's Walker, Kasich, and Jindal come immediately to mind. There's also Ryan and Rubio. My dream nominee is Trey Gowdy, but that's not likely to happen this time around. It is my hope that the party will turn away from Jeb Bush. No ill will toward the man, but this is a Constitutional Republic, not a Dynasty. Let's choose a real conservative, from a non-political family, and WIN!

Can we issue tickets for petty crimes, please, and save the "muscle" for crooks like Al Sharpton, who owe hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid income taxes?
