Leon Panetta was cumming all over the pMSNBC-style media this morning about how Brennan's security clearance revocation was somehow "invalid" or "subject to due process" due to Obama's (and other's) previous Executive Orders.

Panetta and the entire media cadre know he is lying.

They're not mistaken, they know he's lying because they've all seen dozens of Executive Orders.

EVERY SINGLE ONE I have ever seen, and I challenge you to find one that's different, says this at the very end:

This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person. (emphasis mine)

There is no due process right of review.

There is no procedural right of review.

There is no right of review of any sort should a future (or present!) President change his or her mind.

Said President need not issue another executive order; such is a pure exercise of personal prerogative that expires with the holding of the office by the President who issues it.

No future (or in fact current!) President need specifically revoke that which creates no right or benefit; he may simply ignore same.

There is no right to sue if he or she does, in law or equity.

There is no "right" created or enforceable against anyone -- not even against the current holder of the office.

Every single Executive Order I have ever read, and I've read dozens, has this exact language at the bottom right above the signature.

EVERY
SINGLE
ONE.

And every member of the Press, along with every former administration official knows this factually.

To represent otherwise is a lie.

It is a damnable lie for which they deserve to be struck by an asteroid or a bolt of lightning right now and rendered nothing more than a smoking cinder.

Further, any media organization that runs or permits to be run unchallenged such bull**** by anyone over the public airwaves should have its broadcast license revoked instantly for intentionally, knowingly and with willful intent promulgating a lie as an act of intentional misconduct intended to harm the United States on the public airwaves.

Period.

Close only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades and atom bombs.

In elections close is exactly described with one word: LOSING.

this sort of crap wasn't real -- it was all in people's heads.... you know, like Pizza?

An heiress to the Seagram Co. fortune was arrested in a widening probe of a self-help organization that prosecutors say was a secretive cult that branded its victims and forced them to participate in sexual acts.
 
Clare Bronfman, the daughter of former Seagram chairman Edgar M. Bronfman, was one of four women charged Tuesday in connection with the investigation of Nxivm, an Albany, New York-based multilevel marketing company founded by Keith Raniere.

Oh wait -- it is real.

This broke in April, if you recall.

No, that's not all of it -- not by any means.
