Sting like a bee: Darrell Issa receives top-notch training for upcoming hearings [photo]

Muhammad Ali and I going cuff to cuff. #tbt

What could better prepare the House Oversight Chairman for what are sure to be tumultuous upcoming House hearings than a sparring session with The Greatest of All Time?

Issa did receive one piece of advice, however:

  • Mister A

    I couldn’t help but think of this…

    • Guest000048

      So funny!! Did you reply, with this, on Twitter?

      • Mister A

        I had only shared with you good folk, but now it’s on his feed. Thanks!

    • Jeremy

      ha ha

  • CatHerder

    Christ, I thought Ali was dead!

    • pinkelephant22

      HaHa… I actually did too for some reason. I was thinking maybe that was a cardboard cut-out of Ali

  • GrindingMills

    You mean the greatest unpatriotic draft dodger that said, “No, I am not going 10,000 miles to help murder, kill, and burn other people to simply help continue the domination of white slavemasters over dark people the world over. This is the day and age when such evil injustice must come to an end” and supported Obama? Yeah. Let’s get Issa more training from that guy.

    • MarcusFenix

      As a citizen, yeah, less than stellar.

      His boxing record, however, speaks for itself.

    • Rightturn

      Muhammad Ali unpatriotic? That’s laughable.

      He’s one of the greatest global representatives of our nation that we’ve ever had. And at least his opposition to the war was principled; it’s not as if he ran away scared from a war that he protested in favor of.

      Dark people. In Vietnam?

  • Danny Wheeler

    As that one announcer would say… “LET’S GET READY TO RUM-BLLLLLEE!!!”


    Congressman, Please be well trained in Dreams From My Father, Audacity of Hope-by Barack Obama, Black Liberation Theology, Critical Race Theory, MalcolmX, Tony Rezko, Bill Ayers-Weatherman Underground and Barack and his board meetings with Gameliell Foundation, and Apollo Foundation, Van Jones-Color of Change.

    As in Did anyone read his books before he entered the U.S. Senate? And ask this question:
    Why would Obama write this in one of his autobiographies RE: White Folks Greed?
    Taken from his book and in his own words: “Dreams From My Father” page 158 of 235 PDF Form:
    “It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day
    than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year,
    where white folks’ greed runs a world in need,
    apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere…
    That’s the world! On which hope sits!”
    His Books are His Manifesto!
    In PDF Form you can Search for words, Like the Constitution and find that he said this:
    Obama on the Constitution…
    Taken from his book and in his own words: “Audacity of Hope” page 54 of 217 PDF Form:
    Ultimately, though, I have to side with Justice Breyer’s view of the Constitution—that it is not a static but rather a living document, and must be read in the context of an ever-changing world.
    ****Static means Unchangeable****

    Still the Greatest of All Time.

    Rep. Issa is gonna hit Holder so hard, his Children will be born bruised! #TankGirl #RightWard Jawamax 8<{D}

    Darrell Issa is a car thief, arsonist, insurance fraud,…..and a liar. Not to mention that about the only thing he’s legislated was some pork to get an off ramp built in California that leads to a building he owns. I wouldn’t expect much from his investigations his own ethics are highly questionable.

    • CobraJet428

      That’s clearly the BEST resumé amongst democrats. I mean, no one was unConstitutionally spied- upon or died, right?

      • moon

        My comments had nothing to do with belonging to any political party. I just state the long history of Mr. Issa…..and as far as the Constitution goes, the American public should take a good look at the deterioration of the 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th and part of the 14th Amendments over the last 30 years. It doesn’t seem to matter who has been in charge, from warrantless wiretaps and warrantless “Sneak and Peek” Searches, detentions without charges, torture, excessive bail and permanent solitary confinement. Look it up you’ll find a lot of the deterioration in our history under every Administration….Not to mention the latest legislative attack called the Patriot Act, which was really written way before 9/11/2001. It was just taken off the shelf after the attacks, dusted off, tweaked a bit and put into law giving much more power to the Federal Government than anyone would have ever thought could happen.

    Issa’s not soft. As he & others have said, they’re doing everything methodically, as they should. Roll everything out just right, at the right time, cover all the bases & not open up the slightest crack of opportunity for Dems to propagandize & divert from the actual scandals themselves.

    Plus …. the longer this takes, the closer it gets to 2014 election season 😀

  • Michael Anderson (WB)

    Revenge is a dish best served cold.

  • poh

    Dems are getting their attack and talking points lined up to use these hearings to launch their upcoming election campaigns. They’ll try and pull a “war on woman” out of their hat, you can bet on it.

    I think you make a good point in keeping them off their game. They’re like snakes in the grass waiting to strike. Issa needs to keep stomping the ground.

    Yes, definitely snakes. The first thing that popped into my head when hearing about the new Ricin-laced letters was ‘ploy’.

    We all know they wouldn’t think twice about pegging it on some random Joe Blow, creatively of course. It won’t surprise me if the particular Joe Blow will have some sort of record since a squeaky clean Joe Blow would be odd. I’m sure he’ll be a right-winger .. maybe a church-goer .. and a member of the NRA. The FBI has been one of the agencies involved in harassing conservative groups so unfortunately it doesn’t seem very farfetched. Not with this evil thug Admin.

  • poh

    Pink, I thought the same thing when I saw the Ricin reports. My thoughts were, yeah, this is something that the nation should shut down for and direct all resources to find the culprit. Obama will drone a poor Joe Blow and put out the tag of a radical nut job. With a wife, two kids and working 70 hours a week as a tradesman to support his family and care for his elderly mother. But underneath, he was consipiring with Al Queda to undermine the security of every citizen, well, the 47% in the Dems pocket anyway.
