Investigate Issa! Or How To Apply The Chairman’s Own Methods And Style To Him

National Memo conducts an autopsy on Neighbor Darrell...

Among the many reasons that Americans hold the House of Representatives in low repute – at historically abysmal levels, in fact – is the blatantly partisan and ideological misconduct of so many committee chairs. Without any evident embarrassment these mighty politicians deny science, defy mathematics, and dismiss every fact that contradicts their prejudices. But bad as these chairs tend to be, none is quite as flamboyantly awful as Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the Government Oversight Committee

Everyone should ponder this thought every day.

"Republicans realize this, and they’re stamping their feet in frustration. All they can do, it seems, is fulminate (and perhaps scare the administration into backing down). Interestingly, however, right now they don’t seem eager to attack climate science, maybe because that would make them sound unreasonable (which they are)."

What kind of America are you planning on leaving behind? --James

"One time a dear friend of mine asked me how I can keep myself so energetic and engaged about politics without losing my mind. After putting the bong, crack pipe, mescaline, mushroom caps, peyote and Gatorade down and thinking about it, I told her that in my estimation there were two reasons. One, I have a sickness -- I can't not think about this stuff. Secondly, and by far most importantly, because I believe that my most important job as a citizen of this country, and moreover the world, it to make the world a better place. I have an ideal America -- and indeed an ideal Planet Earth -- that I'd like to leave behind, not just for my kids, but every kid, every subsequent person who comes in to sweep up after I've left the stage."

Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.) said Wednesday that the fact that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas voted this week to gut the Voting Rights Act -- the 1965 law aimed at protecting disenfranchised voters -- ranks him somewhere below the likes of Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who leaked classified information about U.S. surveillance programs to the press. "Comparing it to Snowden, I'd say the offense is worse," Johnson told The Huffington Post.

Seattle Airport Border Control Deports Pregnant Chinese Tourist | Alternet

"The U.S. government does not ban entry of foreign pregnant women; neither does the CBP. But in past months, the number of patrols and interrogations seem to have increased. An undisclosed Los Angeles CBP officer said the chance for pregnant women to get in the country depends on the stage of pregnancy: “the closer to the time of birth, the easier it is to be caught, the higher chance there is to be deported.” The CBP officer added that it is not fair for women to come to the United States to give birth as a tourist, taking advantage of U.S. medical services" 

 Let me get this straight. CBP agents are denying entry and deporting people ON THEIR OWN INITIATIVE, with no legal backing? And they're still employed?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?
