WHY the #$^% is This News? Your Republican House Intelligence Committee Chairman “At Work”

By Debbie Schlussel

Why is the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee wasting your money sending out dumb press releases about his wrist? China is hacking our cyber sectors, and he’s telling us some idiocy about his wrist.


I’ve never liked Republican Congressman Mike Rogers, the suburban Michigan politician who chairs the House Intelligence Committee. The guy is a complete fraud. He pretends to care about America’s national security, but never actually does a thing to make us secure. He’s all talk and bluster, and he didn’t keep a promise I saw him give to Christian Arabs who want to help America, but were blocked from getting jobs as FBI translators in favor of Muslims who lie in the translations. At a Christian Arab event for the pro-American, pro-Israel Lebanese Forces, Rogers couldn’t answer any of my basic questions. And I’ve written about it. Plus Rogers attacked Michele Bachmann because, unlike him, she actually gives a damn about dangerous Muslim extremists in top State Department and Homeland Security positions. On top of all of this, Rogers is now spending your tax money for more important things: like sending out a press release about his wrist. Because, “Hey, I gotta keep my name in the news.”

This schmuck, Congressman Rogers, checked in from the House recess to let us know that he “suffered” a hairline fracture of the wrist over the weekend while rough-housing with his 16-year-old son. We need to know this, why? And why isn’t he spending any time during one of his many Congressional vacations doing something to actually make America more secure? Huh?:

U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers of Howell suffered what appeared to be a hairline fracture of his wrist over the weekend.

Rogers, the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said in a statement Monday that he was out with his 16-year-old son and injured his wrist “in an effort to compete with him” in an as-yet undisclosed contest that apparently went the teen’s way.

Well, what does he care? After all, you are paying for the paper and the writing of the press release and the staff who send it to the press. And it got him a slew of ridiculous, fawning stories about his wrist. I don’t categorize this as “TMI” (Too Much Information). This is more like “IDGAC” (I Don’t Give a Crap).

I now interrupt this post so that I can read another press release Mike Rogers just sent. Apparently, he got a paper cut from toilet paper while using an airport bathroom. But he wants you to know he’ll be just fine to media whore himself out another day.

Oh, wait, there’s another press release just in: Mike Rogers just sat down to dinner, and he farted. Alert the media!

Ladies and gentleman . . . the top intelligence and national security guy in the entire United States House of Representatives.

The Chinese and Muslim worlds are having the last laugh.

Not shocking seeing the now blatant way the GOP are bending over (and grabbing ankles!) for the evil Commie Donks. It’s gotten to the point of satire now.

And the sad part is that I am waiting for the Conservatives to wake up and see how dire it is.

They are too busy thinking that the moribund and castrato GOP are actually working for us (which is so sad because the fact that they are wimpy whingers has been apparent for ages now) to finally push back the evil (and gaining ground) Commie Donks for a change.

These same idiots are also feverishly rump-swabbing dangerous morons like Jihad Darrell Issa, Justin Amash and Grover Norquist like Princess Leia tries to get get the help of old Obi Wan in the first Star Wars. (*FacePalm!/HeadDesk!*)

An unconscionable abuse of the Congressional “franking” privilege.

If this is what is called “constituent service” these days, its an insult to constituent service.

As much as Mike Rogers is an insult to the intelligence of this country – its right up there with binders full of women.

What a classy guy!

One blowhard commentator on one of the New York TV stations uses the phrase “Ted Baxter sock-puppet media” to describe the types who pass off trivial tripe and publicist handouts as “news.” And this whole to-do-about-nothing about Congressman Rogers is but one example of why such a phrase has been used.

Don’t forget that Jews who came from Arab countries and offered their services as Arabic translators were also turned away by the US gov’t.

S: Not only didn’t I forget them, I’ve written about them numerous times on this site, and I know some of them. I mentioned them, when I questioned Mike Rogers, but the event was for Lebanese Christian Arabs, whom he promised to help on this front. And he did not help them . . . or anyone. DS

Another limp-wristed congressman. Hmmm

Debbie, glad to see somebody’s standing up for Michele Bachmann, about the only member of Congress who’s worth his or her salary.

Next time he shouldn’t try sticking his hand up his son’s ass.

They probably thought it was newsworthy because now he has to jerk off with the other hand for a few weeks.

Debbie, The only reason that I would even hazard a guess he is doing this, is to show(HAHA) he is still able to work(HAHA)

Another example of the misuse of words. Homeland Security would best be described as Homeland Insecurity, House Intelligence Committee should be called the Unintelligent Committee and Rogers with a (R) after his name should have a (C) for Commie.

A broken wrist means he has to stop ***ing off on National Security issues for a while.

He’s just part of the 99 percent of elected Federal politicians who give the others a bad reputation.

Unfortunately it isn’t news anymore that Republicans are selling out and so unoriginal they can only imitate the frivolity of the Dems.
Why would anyone with an ounce of integrity or half a brain vote for them?
Well look at the alternative.

Rogers wouldn’t report his farts to the media because in his mind his sh*t doesn’t stink.
