Ryan’s Benghazi Surprise
National Review Online, by Larry Kudlow

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/13/2012 10:31:32 AM

The irony of ironies: The Biden-Ryan debate was more about foreign policy than the economy and jobs. And yet another irony: Paul Ryan, an expert on all things fiscal, revealed a much better knowledge base of foreign policy than anyone thought existed. Shows how smart and well-rounded he really is. In fact, Ryan’s Benghazi slam, right out of the chute, won him the debate. This terrorist attack is going to be a huge presidential-race issue. Americans are furious at the Obama-Biden-Clinton stupidity and mismanagement surrounding the tragic Benghazi deaths.

Comments:
Bill Kristol says he has been in the White House when a national security emergency broke and the President, Vice-President, SofS, National Security Adviser do not sit around twiddling thumbs and waiting for information. He said "It just does not happen that way."

4 weeks of spin, lies and coverup and now Obama prepares to double down and blame Hillary.
He has tried to shift the blame to almost everyone else and that little con-man film maker in California is still in jail.

Ryan won the debate with his sober, conscientious demeanor. I know there is a segment of the population that thinks the way Biden acted is "cute," but cute is not what we need in command.

I still can't believe how they are dumping this on SOS. Shouldn't POTUS step up to the plate and accept responsibility for what happens in his administration? This is not s/one getting a parking ticket -- four people were killed and the US was literally raped.

How any woman could vote for Obama is beyond me.

It was apparent that Raddatz's concentration on foreign affairs was meant to help Biden and trip up Ryan. It backfired.

Had that debate taken place 200 years ago during the infancy of the Republic, Biden would have been given the choice of pistol or sabres at dawn.
Rarely has any serious politician acted in such an insulting manner.

If Hillary is a true patriot, or even a true politician (2016), she would resign and leave the State Dept. immediately, telling the whole truth about Benghazi as she slams the door behind her, and saying she can no longer affiliate herself with the travesty that is the Obama Administration. This would signal the "old time Dems" (like Lanny Davis, etc.) who remain Bill & Hill fans, that they no longer have to prop up the imposter in the White House, and the Party could resurrect their theme song, "Happy Days are Here Again." To do anything less, means that Hillary will be forever tainted by the growing Benghazi scandal, and her future political prospects would be nil.

If Romney wanted to seal the election at the next debate, he should play the bi-partisan card.

Under his administration, he would ask Hilary Clinton to consider accepting a cabinet position (UN Secretary) for the good of America, the World, and the healing of the partisan divide in Washington.

Romney would also come to her defense and say that the State Department would finally have adequate defense at ALL Embassy offices around the world and that some Embassy office would immediately be closing the day he takes office.

The Obama “Foreign Policy of Appeasement” will end in 2013.
If a country is hostile to America, kick them out of the US and immediately bring our people home.

If the World wants to have ongoing relations with America, they need to show us their reasons: Fair Trade | Human Rights | Rule of Law (US Constitution not Sharia) |Religious Tolerance | Women's Rights. These should be the litmus tests.

Romney would get the Women's Vote and the Libertarian vote with just this one policy statement.

" Americans are furious at the Obama-Biden-Clinton stupidity and mismanagement surrounding the tragic Benghazi deaths. They are enraged at the Benghazi cover-up."

Really?? I haven't seen any evidence of that outside of republican circles.

President Romney should run, not walk, from both Clintons. The notion that Hillary is popular among American women is rubbish, perpetuated by her minions. She is the type who most women despise. Pushy, political, mendacious. Dangerous.

Looks as though her propaganda machine has invaded LCom.

The object of the Dims and the debate host (but I repeat myself) was to switch the topic to foreign affairs where it was thought Ryan was weaker. Surprise, he isn't.

Let's look at the record and see clearly that the idea that Joe Schmoe from Delaware is a 'foreign policy expert' is completely empty. His foreign policy 'credentials' are as false as his hair and his teeth. Mr. Rush Limbaugh has repeatedly enumerated examples of Joe Schmoe's foreign policy imbecility.

Your hyper-partisan mindset assumes that I am a propaganda machine for the Clintons.
Nothing can be further from the truth.

I am a Libertarian that has seen the Far Left and the Far Right blame their way into power, create a 16 trillion dollar accumulated deficit, and place over 120 trillion in unfunded liabilities at the doorstep of your and my children and grandchildren.

Washington is a bi-partisan disaster that is being perpetuated by people just like you.
You give no solutions other than a partisan one.
“Insanity” is defined as doing the same thing over and over again…..
Reagan and O’Neill worked things out.
Gingrich and Clinton worked things out.

It took 7 generations to screw up Washington.
It is likely to take 7 more to fix it.

Romney can start that process and Washington may resist.
But the American People will rally ‘round that initiative in spite of your pessimism.

So take another look at what I said and think it through again.

We want the same thing, don’t we?

Hillary Clinton started out miles to the left of Bubba before they ever married. She was and still is a rabid Alinskyite and will never change. She is probably to the left of Obie, if truth were told.

Objection to her has nothing to do with being a partisan. She is just the wrong person to use in any so-called bi-partisan endeavor.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Western lawmakers gather in Utah
to talk federal land takeover
Salt Lake Tribune [UT], by Kristen Moulton    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/19/2014 10:46:32 AM     Post Reply
It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday. More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds. "It’s simply time," said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. "The urgency is now." Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including

The Clintons´ ´conspiracy commerce´ memo
Politico, by Hadas Gold    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/19/2014 4:31:20 AM     Post Reply
The famous Clinton White House document known as "the conspiracy commerce memo" has finally surfaced. The memo, which details how right-wing conspiracy theories made their way into the mainstream press, was written in 1995 and first acknowledged by the White House in 1997. The idea of a “conspiracy” was also famously referred to by Hillary Clinton in 1998, when she cited a “vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he ran for president.” The memo, part of the latest trove of documents released by the Clinton Presidential Library on Friday, outlines “the communication stream of conspiracy

President Obama signed an executive order today extending eligibility for the third-highest Defense Department recognition to foreign armies. “Executive Order 12019 of November 3, 1977 (Establishing the Defense Meritorious Service Medal), is amended by inserting, ‘or to any member of the armed forces of a friendly foreign nation,’ after ‘any member of the Armed Forces of the United States,’” said the short order. Worn between the Purple Heart and Meritorious Service Medal, the Defense Meritorious Service Medal is awarded to military personnel “serving with or assigned to a number of joint activities including the Secretary of Defense, organizations of the Joint Chiefs

Poland and the United States will announce next week the deployment of U.S. ground forces to Poland as part of an expansion of NATO presence in Central and Eastern Europe in response to events in Ukraine. That was the word from Poland’s defense minister, Tomasz Siemoniak, who visited The Post Friday after meeting with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel at the Pentagon on Thursday. Siemoniak said the decision has been made on a political level and that military planners are working out details. There will also be intensified cooperation in air defense, special forces, cyberdefense and other areas. Poland will play a

AMSTERDAM -- Charlotte van den Berg was a 20-year-old college student working part-time in Amsterdam´s city archives when she and other interns came across a shocking find: letters from Jewish Holocaust survivors complaining that the city was forcing them to pay back taxes and late payment fines on property seized after they were deported to Nazi death camps. How, the survivors asked, could they be on the hook for taxes due while Hitler´s regime was trying to exterminate them? A typical response was: "The base fees and the fines for late payment must be satisfied, regardless of whether a third party,

MOKPO, South Korea -- A prosecutor says that the third mate steering a South Korean ferry at the time of a major accident was navigating those waters for the first time. Senior prosecutor Yang Jung-jin told reporters that the 25-year-old mate was steering the ship as it passed through an area with lots of islands clustered close together and fast currents. The ferry sank Wednesday. More than 270 people are still missing. Yang says that another mate usually took controls through the area. But because heavy fog caused a departure delay, the third mate was steering the ship through the waters. Yang says

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
