Poll: Obama Collapses to 38% Approval

Poll: Obama Collapses to 38% Approval with ‘All Adults’ http://ow.ly/oPxLN

The conventional wisdom is that when you poll “all adults” as opposed to a tighter screening for “registered voters,” Democrats generally do better. If that is the case, the latest poll from The Economist/YouGov is the worse news yet for a president obviously in over his head with the Russians and Syria. Obama currently sits at 38% approve/56% disapprove with all adults.
Polling in the thirties is danger territory for any American president. When a president loses the people, he loses his political power to achieve any agenda through persuasion and arm-twisting.
With registered voters, Obama is doing a little better with 43% approving, 55% disapproving.
Another poll released today shows that “a majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s handling of foreign policy is worse than or no better than President George W. Bush.”

CNN – CIA Intimidated by Administration Regarding Benghazi

CNN CIA Intimidated by Administration About Benghazi

Its taken about 10 months, but we have more indication that other news agencies are paying attention to lingering questions about Benghazi. Here is more information about the exclusive from Jake Tapper at CNN

Exclusive: Dozens of CIA operatives on the ground during Benghazi attack

CNN has uncovered exclusive new information about what is allegedly happening at the CIA, in the wake of the deadly Benghazi terror attack.

Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault by armed militants last September 11 in eastern Libya.

Programming note: Was there a political cover up surrounding the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans? Watch a CNN special investigation — The Truth About Benghazi, Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET.

Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret.

CNN has learned the CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep the spy agency’s Benghazi secrets from ever leaking out.

Since January, some CIA operatives involved in the agency’s missions in Libya, have been subjected to frequent, even monthly polygraph examinations, according to a source with deep inside knowledge of the agency’s workings.

The goal of the questioning, according to sources, is to find out if anyone is talking to the media or Congress.

It is being described as pure intimidation, with the threat that any unauthorized CIA employee who leaks information could face the end of his or her career.

In exclusive communications obtained by CNN, one insider writes, “You don’t jeopardize yourself, you jeopardize your family as well.”

Another says, “You have no idea the amount of pressure being brought to bear on anyone with knowledge of this operation.”

“Agency employees typically are polygraphed every three to four years. Never more than that,” said former CIA operative and CNN analyst Robert Baer.

In other words, the rate of the kind of polygraphs alleged by sources is rare.

“If somebody is being polygraphed every month, or every two months it’s called an issue polygraph, and that means that the polygraph division suspects something, or they’re looking for something, or they’re on a fishing expedition. But it’s absolutely not routine at all to be polygraphed monthly, or bi-monthly,” said Baer.

CIA spokesman Dean Boyd asserted in a statement that the agency has been open with Congress.

The article had the “usual” replies – but this one seemed like classic denial… there are plenty of things the CIA does that we don’t need to know about. However, this is national security and impacts the safety of each and every US citizen who serves overseas. For their sake and the sake of their families – we NEED the answers to these questions.

What do you think of this reply –

Of course there is a cover up this is our spy agency. What do people think they do? Are Americans that naive that they believe everything the government does should be out in the open? For all we know “Ambassador” Stevens wasn’t even an Ambassador. Do you honestly think we have a right to know what covert operations are going on everywhere? How many Americans in Special Operations groups die in “training accidents” is it really our right to know what it was these great men and women were doing at the time? Wake up people these agencies exist to do the dirty work that we really don’t want to know about.

Jay Leno on the Obama Administration Scandals

From Jay Leno 5-21-2013

The White House admitted President Obama’s chief of staff had advance warning that the IRS was targeting conservative groups. President Obama says the first time he heard about the IRS and AP scandals was from the media. See, that’s why President Obama holds press conferences. It’s not to explain what’s going on. It’s to find out what’s going on.

I Know Nothing

Do you remember when Hogan’s Heroes was a hit and each week we laughed at adorable Sgt Schultz as he said “I know nothing”?

In a fictional character who seemed to have a heart of gold, way deep down, it was humorous.

But when it comes to a President, a US Attorney General and the Commissioner of the IRS – “I don’t know” and “I don’t remember” just are not humorous or endearing. It is downright irritating and could turn out to be illegal. Either these people all think they are nothing but figure heads and have no real responsibility other than smiling for the camera and spending our tax money. Or, they are hiding things and think we’re too gullible and stupid to push for the answers.

What do you think is the problem??

Jay Leno Jokes About Obama Scandal

Jay was at it again last night – and will likely have material for a while —

The Tonight Show With Jay Leno

  • This week will mark the 37th time House Republicans have tried to repeal Obamacare. If Republicans really wanted to do away with Obamacare they should just endorse it as a conservative non-profit and let the IRS take it down.
  • President Obama announced the appointment of a new acting commissioner of the IRS — the other guy was fired. See, they’re called “acting commissioner” because you have to act like the scandal doesn’t involve the White House.
  • A lot of critics are now comparing President Obama to President Nixon. The good news for Obama? At least he’s no longer being compared to President Carter.
  • It has not been a good week for President Obama. You’ve got Benghazi, the IRS scandal, this AP records scandal, and, worst of all, his Chicago Bulls got eliminated by the Miami Heat. Do you know what that means? LeBron James is going to get audited by the IRS.
