    BREAKING: FBI Is Busting into Paula Broadwell’s Home

    (10:05 PM EST) FOX News just confirmed the FBI is at Paula Broadwell’s home.

    UPDATE: (10:15 PM EST) Jeff Smith just added: “At first, I counted 6 FBI agents outside Broadwell house. That’s changed. There are several more agents on scene.”

    And, the AP said, “Nearly a dozen agents were seen carrying boxes and taking photographs inside the home.”

    @TZCA “I would like to see Social Security left alone”

    You flaming Liberal, LOL. I believe in a minimum of 10% cuts to every department, including social security. Everybody needs to pitch in.

  • Mark2


    I believe Eric Cantor didn’t blow the lid on this because both Petraeus and Broadwell are Republicans.

  • TZCA

    lol @ flaming liberal.

    Don’t get too excited, I’ll bring Granny up to the cliff but I won’t push her over (kidding).

  • Doug Z

    It’s a riot that the FBI can kick in a private citizen’s door in an instant, but couldn’t get into Benghazi in a month.

    Look back and laff. That’s all you can do.

    In the real world we would be trying to get the bastards that killed our Ambassador and solve this murder.

    A lesson for Democrats – other Democrats will allow you to be killed and then they will cover it up.

  • TZCA


    The only problem I see with the notion of cutting Social Security is, what is there to cut?

    Social Security was established as a system designed to be funded entirely by worker payroll deductions and separate from the General Fund. Unfortunately, current Social Security surpluses are subsidizing General Fund spending. It’s expected that with Baby Boomer retirements peaking over the next few years, this surplus will become a deficit, requiring Social Security to then be subsidized by the General Fund and causing General Fund spending to spiral out of control (as if its not already). If a way can be found to go back to the original design, such as doing what Keynes suggests to raise income caps for contribution, then no ‘cutting’ is necessary. But again, I don’t see what there is to cut in the first place.

  • ninja

    @ Doug Z. Just like how they found the guy who made the pilot for the movie that was the cause of the four dead americans. This administration is on top of things.

  • Doug Z

    A life in the military, then one moment with Obama and it’s all over! John Kennedy, Ted Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Bill Clinton — they can all have multiple affairs, even murder a women and NO PROBLEM from Dems and Lib creeps. One US General has an affair and ti’s a catastrophe for him! HAHAHAHAhahaaaa!!!! You think you can get away with this?

  • Larry

    The thing is when there’s a problem,the republicans circle the wagons and shoot outward.
    The democrats circle the wagons and shoot inward!

  • Doug Z

    Clinton did far worst and was embraced by the Democrats and the National Organization for Ugly Women. Patricia Ireland president of NOW at the time said she wished she could satisfy President Clinton. The press said it was a personel affair between Bill and Hillary.

  • Mark2

    @TZCA “The only problem I see with the notion of cutting Social Security is, what is there to cut?”

    Huh? Cut Pension payments.

  • Doug Z

    What a joke. With 100^ of the Main Stream Media “in the tank” for Obama, Drudge was the only place you could go to read the truth. Look at all the Obama failures that have come out since the election covered up by collusion between the Main Stream Media and the White House. The American voters had the right to know the truth before the election. Until all the Main Stream Media newspapers and networks go out of business I thank GOD for Drudge.

  • ninja

    I have confidence the great journalist of the main street media will get to the bottom of this.

  • Mark2


    In an answer to a question reading the CIA chief’s handling of the incident, Paula Broadwell said:

    “Now, I don’t know if a lot of you heard this, but the CIA annex had actually, um, had taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner and they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back. So that’s still being vetted.”

    -That could throw another kink in al the Fox News conspiracies.

  • ninja

    @ Mark could you please explain why ?

  • ninja

    Problem with Fox how?

  • Mark2


    I never heard Fox News mention the fact that the attackers were trying to get militia members that were taken captive by the CIA.

  • ninja

    Mark2. Sorry don’t know where to starton the CIA, gest have to watch NBC tomorrow………….good night.

  • Doug Z

    Gen. Petraeus, Hillary Clinton, Ambassador Rice, and President Obama all lied about the terror attack in Lybia. Now, we are hearing of a possible illegal detainment by the CIA. So what does the Daily Beast writer do? Daly slanders the victim and suggests that puritanical Republicans are to blame! News flash, there was a terrorist attack on 9-11. Petraeus lied about an insignificant video. Petraeus hid until after the election. Petraeus bugged out before having to testify. But yeah… lets write a hit piece on the woman who was harassed and evil puritanical Republicans!
