WHAT A NOVEL CONCEPT … A PERJURY INVESTIGATION FOR LYING, CROOKED HILLARY …
Chairmen of two House committees, Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) and Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), are formally requesting the U.S. attorney in D.C. to conduct a perjury investigation into Hillary Clinton. During the questioning of FBI Director Comey following his absurd notion that after laying the case for Hillary Clinton to be charged and his subsequent however 180, Rep. Jason Chaffetz asked whether Comey had considered her lying in his investigation. Comey amazingly stated that there was no referral from Congress to do so. There is now. Rep. Chaffetz came through with his promise that Comey would have a referral. Because support Hillary or not, she lied under oath to Congress.
Did Hillary Clinton lie? (skip to 1:50)
From Mediaite, here is the rationale behind Jason Chaffetz and Bob Goodlatte‘s demand:
The evidence collected by the FBI during its investigation of Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email system appears to directly contradict several aspects of her sworn testimony. In light of those contradictions, the Department should investigate and determine whether to prosecute Secretary Clinton for violating statutes that prohibit perjury and false statements to Congress, or any other relevant statutes.
Wow, lets see the Obama flunkies in the FBI and the DOJ sweep this charge against Hillary Clinton under the rug. FBI Director Comey all but said during his presser on Hillary, that she did tell mis-truths and lied when it came to whether she had sent or received classified emails and a laundry list of other factoids. Hillary Clinton and perjury go together like peas and carrots.
Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) sent the referral to the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, asking him to probe claims Clinton made during the hearing last fall that have proved false.
Clinton testified, for example, that she neither sent nor received emails marked classified, and that she turned over all her work-related emails to the State Department. FBI Director James Comey said those statements were wrong during a hearing last week. She did receive some emails with classified markings, he said; his agents found them during their investigation. And they also discovered thousands of work-related messages her lawyers failed to turn over, he said.
“The evidence collected by the FBI during its investigation of Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email system appears to directly contradict several aspects of her sworn testimony,” the committee chairmen wrote. “In light of those contradictions, the Department should investigate and determine whether to prosecute Secretary Clinton for violating statutes that prohibit perjury and false statements to Congress, or any other relevant statutes.”
COMEY ON THE HOT SEAT …
FBI Director James Comey will face the music this morning and have to answer Congress as to how he could lay out a case against Clinton and her “gross negligence” in handling classified emails and then suddenly do a U-turn and state he will not recommend charges. But of course this was not political. Of course not. Sorry, its a sad day when a government employee could act so reckless and purposely send and receive classified emails and then be let off the hook. The fix was in from the outset.
FBI Director James Comey will be facing skeptical and angry Congressional Republicans this morning in a hastily called hearing on Capitol Hill.The criminal case against Hillary Clinton and her aides is closed, but top Republicans want to know why she was not prosecuted for mishandling classified information while using a private email server as Secretary of State
Tuesday, Comey harshly criticized Clinton and her State Department team for being “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly-classified information. But then, Comey announced that the FBI would recommend against charging Clinton or her aides criminally.
The decision set off a firestorm of criticism from Republicans, and prompted a quick call for Congressional hearings.
“The FBI’s recommendation is surprising and confusing,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz said in a statement announcing today’s hearing. “The fact pattern presented by Director Comey makes clear Secretary Clinton violated the law. Individuals who intentionally skirt the law must be held accountable.”
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said the decision looked like “preferential treatment for Clinton.”

‘Little House on the Prairie’ Actress Melissa Gilbert To Run for Congress in Michigan’s 8th District as a Democrat
Damn, Laura “Half Pint” Ingalls is a Democrat …
51 year old Laura Ingalls is going to run for Congress in 2016 in Michigan’s 8th District. Melissa Gilbert is going to run as a Democrat in a district that has lately become a GOP stronghold in recent elections. Although Laura Ingalls has not held political office before, which is probably a good thing in this day and age, but she was president of the Screen Actors Guild serving two terms from 2001 to 2005. However, it appears that Melissa Gilbert’s campaign may have difficulties before it begins. In June 2015, the Daily Press & Argus in Livingston County reported that the IRS filed a lien against Gilbert, alleging she owes more than $360,000 in back taxes. Who thinks that Michigan Republicans will use this as political ad fodder and rightfully so. One would think that locals in her district might have an issue with this as well, one would think.
Oh those tax and spend liberals and the hypocrisy of it all.
Actress Melissa Gilbert, best known for her portrayal of Laura Ingalls Wilder on NBC’s “Little House on the Prairie” in the 1970s and ‘80s, said Monday she will run for Congress in Michigan’s 8th District — though her campaign will have to tamp down questions about a tax bill.
Gilbert, who lives in Livingston County with her husband, actor Timothy Busfield, is running as a Democrat in a district that has been a Republican stronghold in recent elections: U.S. Rep. Mike Bishop, R-Rochester, won the race to replace former U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Howell, last year, beating Democrat Eric Schertzing, 54%-42%.
But someone with Gilbert’s celebrity could make a splash, especially when it comes to raising funds for her campaign. Bishop was recently added to the Republican’s Patriot Program, an effort to help potentially vulnerable incumbents maintain their seats in Congress, though it’s unclear why he was marked for such aid.
“I’m running for Congress to make life a little easier for all the families who feel they have fallen through the cracks in today’s economy,” Gilbert said in a statement released on her website, www.gilbertformichigan.com. “I believe building a new economy is a team effort, and we need to bring fresh voices to the table to get the job done.”
US Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) wants a Congressional living wage …
You wonder why Congress has a 15% approval rating? Not only does Congress not do anything, only seem interested in maintaining their own power and when you count up the days work only about 1/2 a year … now US Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL) wants a pay raise. Watch the VIDEO below of Hasting whining about his pay and saying that he thinks that Congress deserves a raise. Really? Congress makes $174,000 a year for working far less days than your average American. He thinks that this is not being paid properly. These people have helped destroy this country and now they want to be rewarded? This previously disgraced and impeached judge should be tossed out of office and make to work in the private sector, one he helped ruin. CONGRESS DOES NOT DESERVE A RAISE, THEY DESERVE TO BE THROWN OUT OF OFFICE.
Rep. Alcee L. Hastings made the politically tone-deaf case for raising salaries for members of Congress Monday, pointing to the high cost of living in the District of Columbia.
“Members deserve to be paid, staff deserves to be paid and the cost of living here is causing serious problems for people who are not wealthy to serve in this institution,” the Florida Democrat said at a Rules Committee meeting, referring to the average member’s $174,000 annual salary. “We aren’t being paid properly,” he later added.
The committee was considering the fiscal 2016 Legislative Branch appropriations bill, which sets the spending levels for Congress and legislative branch agencies. The bill includes a freeze on member pay, continuing one that has been in place since 2010 — and last year drew the ire of then-Rep. James P. Moran.
Pay raise? You know these people are getting monies that are not apart of their actual salary. They can write books, do speeches, etc. Sorry Alcee, HOW ABOUT YOU GET A REAL JOB IN THE PRIVATE SECTOR!!! PAY RAISE MY BUTT!!!
Maybe Hastings should go back to taking bribes?
