That's funny.....except for the tax payer flipping the bill.

So.....government officials are now trained on how to keep from telling the whole truth and being evasively smart about their answers to investigative committees. 

Truth in government, how sad.

Ya know, there is a lot of truth to this statement.

When the country is led by someone like Obama, who lies whenever he opens his mouth, it becomes okay for everyone.  When a leader can't be believed, they lose their honor.  When a leader has no honor, they lose their ability to lead.  In my opinion, Obama lost that ability way before he was even elected in 2008.  He has never been an honorable man.

Team Hillary is really dumping these stories prior to her throwing her hat in the ring.

Hillary Clinton Used Personal Email at State Dept., Possibly Breaking Rules
Hillary Email ‘Scandal’? Not So Fast

A NYT report says Clinton may have violated federal regulations by using private email for government business. But those rules weren’t in place when she’s alleged to have broken them.
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/03/03/hillary-email-scandal-not-so-fast.html

Sorry...not a fan of Hillary...but the truth matters more than how I feel about her.

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

Note the NYT and WP stories.   I think it is smart for the Clinton team to get this stuff out there so they can claim that it is an old story after Hillary declares that she is running.

State reinforces everything people don’t like about her

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2015/03/03/hillary-clintons-private-email-address-at-state-reinforces-everything-people-dont-like-about-her/

The New York Times' report Monday night that Hillary Clinton never used an official government e-mail address during her time as secretary of state, a possible violation of requirements for federal officials to archive their correspondence, is a perfect storm of political bad news for the soon-to-be presidential candidate.

Why? Because it reminds and reinforces for people many of the traits that they do not like in the Clintons while also suggesting a level of hubris that is very dangerous for someone who is the biggest non-incumbent frontrunner for a presidential nomination in modern political history.

Let's tackle -- point by point -- why this story is so bad for Clinton.

1. "They don't think the rules apply to them.": The idea that Clinton never had an official government e-mail address reeks of the idea that she believes that she is apart from (and above) the rules that govern those serving in government. No, Clinton isn't the first person in government to use a private e-mail but, as the Times piece suggests, she may be the first person to exclusively use one.

2. "They are surrounded by enablers.": Maybe the most amazing part of this story -- at least to me -- is that NO ONE ever took Clinton aside during her four years at State and said something like "Look, I know you mostly use your private e-mail address. But why don't we just set up an official government one, too." It's impossible to believe that everyone on the State staff thought that only using a private e-mail address was the right course of action for Clinton and that it had no possibility of backfiring on her.

3.  "They're always hiding something.": It's, of course, possible that Clinton used a private e-mail account because she liked the user interface on it better than a clunkier government version or some other banal reason like that. But using an e-mail domain that is not subject to the same federal archiving rules -- yes, Clinton turned over 55,000 pages of e-mails, but who decided what e-mails to turn over and which not to? -- looks suspicious even to people who are not disinclined to take Clinton at her word. (And there are LOTS of  people who are disinclined to do so.)

4. "They only think about politics.": The timing of the setup of Clinton's private e-mail account, first reported by Philip Bump in this space Monday night, is very problematic for the "nothing to see here" argument being put forward by the Clinton types. It was established on the same day that Clinton began her confirmation hearings to be secretary of state. The expiration on the domain is shortly after the 2016 election.



Could the timing be coincidental? I mean, I guess. But it's hard to see how.

5. "They never own up to anything.": The Clinton camp response has been predictable -- and not so good. (In their defense, I'm not sure there exists a good way to respond to a story like this one.)  “Both the letter and spirit of the rules permitted State Department officials to use non-government email, as long as appropriate records were preserved,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill told The Post. Of course, that depends on what the meaning of "appropriate" is -- and is just the sort of statement that makes people think that these people really don't get it.

LOL - I wonder what is keeping Hillary from releasing all of her emails since she had the homebrew email system running out of one of her homes.

Hillary tweeted this last night:


I want the public to see my email. I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible.

Wow, this story is getting bigger than I expected.   Even TMZ is chasing Hillary.

It is cool to see folks using Twitter to fight State Department corruption:

US State Dept source provided Clintons with detailed heads up on potential scandals from Judicial Watch law suit
https://t.co/5UCN7fDd72


@JudicialWatch replied:

@wikileaks very serious; we are investigating now...

Yet every other commercial in the Lions game is Hillary trying to look "Presidential."

She would look better in STRIPES.

Can you imagine how many speaking Slick Willie will be able to attract when Hillary is President.  The Clinton Criminal Enterprize will be worth billions,
You say Bill can't engage with corporations and foreign governments.  Who is going to stop him?

I thought this was interesting and heard it discussed within a rather conservative crowd at the time, but this one I thought was well written.

You're Fired! Defiant Acting Attorney General Relieved of Duty

[No headline just a press statement]

"President Trump, at 9:16 p.m. Monday, announced the firing of the acting attorney general who had defied him on his migrant-travel ban, saying she "has betrayed the Department of Justice."

Tonight, President Trump relieved Ms. Yates of her duties and subsequently named Dana Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to serve as Acting Attorney General until Senator Jeff Sessions is finally confirmed by the Senate, where he is being wrongly held up by Democrat senators for strictly political reasons.

"I am honored to serve President Trump in this role until Senator Sessions is confirmed. I will defend and enforce the laws of our country to ensure that our people and our nation are protected,"said Dana Boente, Acting Attorney General.
