In retrospect, the Democratic Convention highlighted a liar, Elizabeth Warren. She was hired by Harvard law school because she lied about her ethnicity to gain affirmative action benefits, exaggerated her scholarship which was shoddy, practiced law for years in Massachusetts out of her law school office without being a member of that state's bar -- and possibly at the time a member of no bar at all. She gummed on before the crowd about working for the middle class hiding from the audience that she had made hundreds of thousands of dollars representing big corporations
Clarice knows how to tie all the strings together. Elizabeth Warren and her supposed-Indian ancestry, which gained her a teaching position at Harvard, and the law license she doesn't hold, are just the tip of the iceberg.
Actually, it's probably a good thing that she is running for office, because much of her dissembling might have gone un-noticed by Harvard. What an embarrassment to a supposedly superior institution! Never again can Harvard hold its nose in the air as the "crème de la crème" of higher education.
The last four years have been a string of lies by almost all of the players in this Administration, which has become an American tragedy. Hopefully, the American voters have opened their eyes and have had their fill of lies, deceit, distortion, duplicity, dissimulation.
This Administration lies and prevaricates about everything. These people must have been who Mark Twain had in mind when he said: "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics."
#3, #4, others: never forget that the Left has one principle, which is the wielding of power. Know that truth and all is clear to you. If they believed free markets would put more power in their hands than statism, we would see Milton Friedman posters in Obama's campaign offices, not Che posters.
#5: Harvard is The New York Times of universities.
Warren is the typical Democrat candidate for political office, liars and frauds. Keep voting Democrat and that's what you get. A perfect example sits in the Oval Office. The Democrat Party needs to be sent a message in November. They should be voted out of all governmental control.
#8, the Democrat Party WAS sent a message in 2010. All across the country, Republicans wiped the floor with dem candidates in a historic election victory. Doesn't seem to matter to the media, et all. They continue like nothing happened in 2010. This election, we must do the same... Wipe the floor with the libs in 2012!
I surely hope the poles are wrong or we are in for a country with no freedom, a country where no one will want to work - just set back and hope the government takes care of them -----until the money runs out and then, we will all be on the streets, begging for just a small piece of bread. It cannot continue like it is going - the poor will not or can't work because they cannot find a job, the wealthy will loose all their money and they will not be able to promote jobs so the poor will remain poor. We are in for a rocky road. Its like the countries overseas who can't find work, food, or any thing to sustain life.
These revelations make sense as to why the fast and furious lies are coming from the Administration. No wonder Hillary looks so worried. SHe has her very own Watergate to weasel out of. The author seems to feel that the press cannot hide it for another 40 days. I hope he is right.
Morsi is also pressing for the release of the Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, the "Blind Sheikh," who was behind the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and who is at the center of an extradition battle in the U.K. trying to evade imprisonment in the United States.
This excerpt from Matt Holtzmann confused me (not that hard to do). Isn't the Blind Sheikh serving a life sentence here? Who is fighting extradition? Maybe I'm reading this wrong or missing some context or other.

# 19 I believe there's a typo and the sentence should read Morsi is also pressing for the release of the Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, the "Blind Sheikh," who was behind the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and Al-Masri who is at the center of an extradition battle in the U.K. trying to evade imprisonment in the United States.
FTA: "I can think of no other reason why we had so many former Seals and outside contractors in these locations except that we were trying unsuccessfully to retrieve these arms before they fell in the hands of Al Qaeda."
Clarice gives us a pretty good investigative piece on the Benghazi attack, Obama's role in creating the conditions for that attack, and the signs of a tragically-mishandled coverup.
It's interesting to notice, then, the occasional use of rhetoric in places where proof is not yet present to connect some of the pieces.
Asserting an explanation to be true, based on one's inability to see an alternative explanation, is usually what we see in Liberal handwaving. It's as logically sound as asserting a point to be true because one feels it's got to be true.
#13 ("I surely hope the poles are wrong") -- Not sure what folks in Krakow or Warsaw have to do with our future freedom to begin with; but I'd rather see the Czechs or Hungarians be wrong this time. (Poles get such a bad rap...)
@#24 "...#13 ("I surely hope the poles are wrong") -- Not sure what folks in Krakow or Warsaw have to do with our future freedom to begin with; but I'd rather see the Czechs or Hungarians be wrong this time. (Poles get such a bad rap…)…"
Now, now. We all know what was meant. In the heat of writing, we all may, from time to time plug in the wrong word with the correct spelling.
This opinion piece is NOT about Elizabeth Warren. It's about Obama arming the Islamists who eventually attacked the US Embassy.
Elizabeth Warren is a symptom of a much greater rot at the core of the democrat party. Fast And Furious and the Benghazi cover-up go way beyond Watergate, Rose Law Firm billing records, Cattle Futures, Travel Gate, Valerie Plame, Iran Contra etc etc.
Obama and his administration shouldn't be merely impeached, they should be criminally prosecuted. Which is why I expect a blanket John Doe pardon for anyone why has ever worked for Obama when he gets bounced out of the White House.
I am hoping the Romney Debate coaching team is looking for a way for Mitt to introduce this into the debates. However, although the article is a "good" story, where are the facts to support all these links, i.e. Chicago + Mex drug cartels, Obama's secret orders et alia.
#30...it's too complicated and it doesn't strike home sufficiently to be a major issue. It may warrant a mention, but if one has to explain, it's not an election issue. Now, free phones is another matter.
The revelations that Obama supplies weapons to Al Qaeda really comes as no surprise. If topic of supplying arms came up during the muslim brotherhood installation effort, take it for granted they DID do it. Of course the FBI hasn't been sent in-might uncover the truth. Bamster has been using the office of the presidency to side with our enemies. I feel sorry for Bill, Hillary probably has a headache most nights-kidding that's a good thing. Get out there and campaign(perfect excuse) for our communist commander in chief, Bill. You might get some on the road.
Anyone notice that OCCIC has been taken down, with promises to come back by now passed Sept 25? The "axe" must be at it again.
Before "if you like your plan, you can keep it," the Obama left made a whole spate of false promises in the realm of sexuality. It´s worth connecting the dots between the folly of ObamaCare, an issue for which I wasn´t personally on the front lines, and the sweeping folly of sexual radicalism, an issue for which I was. In the rhetorical battlefield over sex and sexuality, the left rehearsed and perfected public-opinion warfare. These seasoned tactics led to the triumphal hubris of ObamaCare and the collateral damage of its inexorable implosion. Pick your antique allegory of overconfidence: the Tower of Babel,
"I´ve written two books," Senator Barack Obama told a crowd of teachers in Virginia on the campaign trial in July of 2008. The teachers applauded. "I actually wrote them myself," he added with a wink and a nod, and now the teachers exploded in laughter. They got the joke: Republicans were too stupid to write their books. Although few fussed over Obama´s second book, a first-person memoir/ policy brief published in 2006 titled The Audacity of Hope, Obama´s 1995 memoir Dreams from My Father had emerged as the sacred text in the cult of Obama "There is no underestimating the importance
Elect a Chicago community organizer (twice) as your president and you should not be surprised to find that all he is capable of is spewing propaganda and dividing us by personalizing attacks on those who oppose his grandiose, wildly impractical efforts at reshaping our lives to suit his sophomoric view of the good life. As the obvious failure of ObamaCare has become evident to all but his most blinkered cultists, Obama fell back this week on upping the propagandizing and deflecting attention from his failures with even more lies. His organizing arm OFA (Organizing for America) urged supporters to use this year´s
Those who wrote the PPACA legislation were much more brilliant than most conservatives have given them credit for. They have hidden a landmine in the way it all works that will ensure an eventual takeover of the entire health care industry by the government. Let me first clarify my professional interest. I have been a vendor of software and services to both insurance companies and providers, and therefore have a deep understanding of the health care industry and what the ACA will do to it. I do not work for any insurance companies or medical providers, nor do I own stock
MONTICELLO, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A video recording shows the mayor of the Sullivan County municipality of Monticello in a heated confrontation after being arrested by his own police officers. (Snip) He was taken into custody after showing up to take a look at a serious car accident on Main Street. A volunteer firefighter noticed the mayor looked drunk, according to police, and notified law enforcement. Jenkins was arrested on the spot. In a video recorded at his own police headquarters, a man identified as Jenkins was shown seated in a chair with one hand handcuffed to a wall. During the first
If you think ObamaCare is bad, just wait till you hear the new "peace" agreement that is due to be imposed on the Middle East over the coming weeks. Even if it works, a giant if, it will make the world much more dangerous: 1. Iran will have nuclear weapons, or it will be balanced right on the edge -- within one month or less to make nukes. 2. Saudi Arabia and Egypt will go nuclear, to balance Iran. 3. America´s role as a guarantor of peace will be blown, crushed by Obama´s betrayal of Israel and the Arabs. America´s nuclear umbrella, which
How fitting that abortion zealot and self-proclaimed Marxist Gloria Steinem received the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Wednesday from Barack Hussein Obama. The male-bashing, anti-family, anti-American Steinem beamed as the guy who voted three times against a partial-birth abortion ban while in the Illinois state Senate placed the medal around her neck. What exactly is the meritorious contribution Steinem has made to our national interests that would warrant such an honor? Ever since the radical feminist attended an "abortion speak-out" in 1969 hosted by the radical man-hating group Redstockings, she was "instantly committed" to the abortion movement.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
