Bio
Born in Denver, Colorado, 1950s-era capitol of the Beat scene, Gordon Hilgers was exiled to Dallas, Texas, in 1963, and Dallasites were so angry that another 9-year-old Democrat had entered the city that they killed Kennedy. From there, Gordon began writing poems and stories, eventually received a BA degree in newswriting, has written for The Dallas Morning News, despite the fact he was far too Liberal for the likes of William F. Murchison and John Birch, worked as an advocacy journalist and is partly responsible for the City of Dallas' public homeless shelter--where poor people can go to find jobs rather than getting told that because they've forgotten to embrace Jesus that God made them homeless.

DAVID PETRAEUS: F.B.I. SCAM-BOTS GO ON RAMPAGE

Rate: 2 Flag

 

Wow.  I had no idea a General of the United States Army was required to also be a Vestal Virgin.  When did this happen?  When did the F.B.I. decide to administer chastity tests for public officials? 

What’s next?  Purity rings? 

Yup.  The so-called David Petraeus “scandal” is yet another example of how the rightie-tighties keep managing to catch themselves in their underwear. 

The only problem is, it’s the F.B.I. that has shown it’s apparently not-so-true-to-us colors.  Honestly.  U.S. Representative Eric Cantor knew about this before the President of the United States?  We all knew Cantor was chaste and rich, and did we mention rich?  He’s also one of the biggest conserva-troids in America. 

The David Petraeus “scandal” stinks to high heaven.  This was a politically-motivated hit.  Isn’t it odd that the true leaders in America—Eliot Spitzer, Anthony Weiner and now Petraeus—are biting the dust faster than Styrofoam dolls on an F.B.I. shooting range? 

The New York Times reported today that, no, Petraeus’ affair had absolutely nothing to do with national security.  Not a bit.  But J. Edgar Hoover can go to parties dressed like a (very ugly) woman named Mary, and everything is just copacetic.  Right? 

Absolutely right.  As in right wing.  Slow motion coup d’etat.  One more case of the policing arm of the government getting “uppity”.  I’m serious.  This is much ado about nothing. 

It’s not unusual for men of great power to have affairs.  Nor is it unusual for a man like Petraeus, whose wife looks like she’s been dragged through a barbed-wire fence by a pack of coyotes, to go looking for something a little less nauseating. 

Chastity and law enforcement.  The vice squad gone amok. 

When New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer got popped for engaging with prostitutes, I couldn’t help but think about the literal whore-fest going on in the upper echelons of Wall Street’s gambling parlors.  And when Anthony Weiner got hit with a Breitbart-connived scandal, I couldn’t help but wonder: Isn’t dressing like “Mary” worthy of the news? 

If I was President Obama, I’d stroll on down to F. B. I. headquarters in Quantico, Virginia, and roll me some heads.  It’s obvious that the Petraeus affair had absolutely nothing to do with national security.  Perhaps we should hire Blackwater to infiltrate the F.B.I. to get us some saucy gossip. 

I’ve long been concerned with various problems within the F.B.I.  Though law enforcement is supposed to be non-partisan, rumor has it that many in the intelligence-gathering quarter are rabidly right-wing.  Like wolves with rabies.  The wolf pack has spoken. 

Doubtless, right now, right at this very moment, some F. B. I. higher-up is shagging some whore.  The whore is called “radical right wing politics” and she screams and rocks like an earthquake as the agent uses his nightstick in ways not listed in its usage manual.

We should all be concerned that this investigation got offthe ground in the first place, being friends with an FBI agent should not allow for civil liberties to be breached. How many people get threatened via email or on twitter, do they investigate each one? Heads should role at the FBI for initiating this and somewhere in the administration for hiding it for a month.
What's alarming to me in this scenario is that the FBI conducted the investigation & Eric Cantor found was informed BEFORE the president. Sounds suspiciously as if the FBI investigation of Broadwell & Petraeus's email for something else--hmm--perhaps evidence of a Benghazi scandal? I can just see them reporting to Cantor, "we didn't dig up anything on Benghazi, but did find this juicy sex scandal."

Unlike others, I think Petraeus did the right thing in resigning.
The Director of the CIA is in a unique position where national security could be jeopardized by (for example) blackmail over a sex scandal. The same could be said of the head of the NSA or head of FBI. Even if national security wasn't compromised, Petraeus was under an obligation to inform his superiors of the risk & it appears he didn't. This is one of the few positions in government where a sex scandal can LEGITIMATELY get you fired. Petraeus knew he did wrong & then did the honorable thing & resigned.

Another good man who had to fall on his sword because he couldn't keep his pants zipped. Sigh.

Having an affair may not be in and of itself anyone's business, but the person the gen. was having the affair with sent threatening emails to some other woman the gen was close to. And she (according to current news) may have publicly said some things about Libya that were not for her to speak of. Can't trust anybody you have an affair with not to go squirrelly.
