That’s the Politico headline about today’s presidential news conference. (Snip) When the press conference is over, we still won’t know why additional security wasn’t provided to the consulate in Benghazi despite multiple requests, why Ty Woods was told to stand down, who gave the order to stand down, why multiple appeals for support went unanswered, where the president was on the evening of September 11, why the president stuck to the video-as-cause falsehood for several weeks, who told Susan Rice to perpetuate that falsehood, what Secretary of State Clinton was doing before, during, and
Comments: The important — i.e. NON-salacious — questions that must be answered. Despite the kneepad media’s attempt to distract.
I am a big fan of the Twilight Zone. The Zone is a work of fiction. This idiot of a president is sending America down a rat hole to hell and these fools are just singing and skipping down the yellow brick road. This is our reality. How do we deal with this?
How do we stop it? Reverse the infiltration. We infiltrate their ranks: public schools, universities, government jobs, union jobs, churches, etc. Talk to young people. Convince them without preaching. Tell them the truth and then when they persist in their ignorance, just shrug and remind them they are entitled to their opinions, not their own facts. Then walk away and pray. Don´t be afraid to be the minority voice, the Commies were once the minority voice in our country too.
The Media has managed to destroy themselves without knowing it. The reason they cannot vet the President or anything else is that they have lost the ability. They are utterly worthless. Four more years of this kind of behavior and we won´t have to worry about the media. They are unable to see news when it is in front of them. Only their choir and idiots will pay any attention to them.
I get ALL my news from the internet and random Fox Cable News ( more random by the day as I refuse to watch Mr Beckel and Mr Williams and all the other fair and balanced folks they have brought on board ). Fox can be fair and balanced without bringing unbalanced. There are normal humans available who do not have an agenda. Are there any fair, independent reporters/journalists still in existence in the USA, outside of the internet. The Foreign sites, such as Canada and the Uk, have far better articles than most US sites.
The MSM gets away with it because they know whatever they do, however much they slander, libel, lie, and cover-up, no matter how brazenly corrupt their "reporting" becomes, no one will have the guts to sue them for malpractice. The GOP has given them a Free Pass, and they know it. They snicker with smug arrogance at all our complaining about "bias", knowing they will never actually be called to account for any degree of lawbreaking (partaking in cover-ups, for example) in a court of law. Thus, they can advertise that they "report the news" while manifestly doing the opposite, with intent to harm. Free Pass!
Check out Obama´s words at the UN? He also supported the film being the problem. He and Hillary are in this deception very deep!
To blame Rice is stupid. She only spouted off what she heard from the top man, Mr. President. This has gone far beyond Watergate and the Dems sought to destroy the Republicans.
Obama will bring down the Dems further and they will not be able to hold their heads up high ever again.
Obama has no conscience and he can lie without even blinking an eyes. It comes natural to him - maybe it was the water in Chicago that set him to be who he is today.
Historians will not be kind to Obama. I pray for his girls, that they do not suffer too much for all that he has done to destroy US!
There are still some good men/women in the Democratic party, but they better stand up or forever be forgotten!
Question and answer time has finally come. Too bad we can´t force Obama to take a lie detecter. Maybe he could outsmart that too. How about the teleprompter inputer. When will we find out who writes his speeches and how much he/she will be held accountable in the years to come.
They are a bunch of Chicago thugs in the White House.
God help those who voted for Obama, not only once, but now twice, knowing exactly who he is and what he has done and will continue to do to US!
Questions need to be answered. Who will come forward for love of America! We are all waiting to see him/her.
Obama just disregarded any questions he didn´t want to answer - nothing new!
Probably the worst part about a liberal (and it´s hard to choose from) is their false pretense that they care about humanity and the human condition.New York is probably the world´s most known city and it´s literally rotting with Obama and Bloomberg living large while these people suffer.
Then you have the 4 dead Americans case and the person who knows more than anybody,Hillary is off jet setting with an entourage of a 100 people for wine tasting.
Does anyone else find The Won´s practice of calling on reporters from a list, not even knowing where they are in the room (but no doubt knowing the question they will ask), antithetical to the purpose of a news conference?
Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), apparently pleased with the ouster of the former President Mohamed Morsy, have approved $8 billion in aid to Egypt on Tuesday. The Saudi funds comprise a $2 billion central bank deposit, $2 billion in energy products, and $1 billion in cash, the Saudi Finance Minister Ibrahim Alassaf told Reuters. (Snip) The rise of Mohamed Morsy´s Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt since 2011 has unsettled most Gulf Arab states, including the UAE, which feared it would embolden Islamists at home. Morsy became president a year ago in Egypt´s first freely contested election.
The second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings was taken into custody Friday night, bringing to an end a massive manhunt in the tense Massachusetts capital worried by warnings the man was possibly armed with explosives. After announcing the arrest on Twitter, Boston police tweeted: “Captured!!! The hunt is over. The search is done. The terror is over. And justice has won. Suspect in custody.” (Snip) Police were alerted to his whereabouts by a man who went outside after authorities lifted an order for residents to stay inside during the manhunt. The man saw blood on a boat in the
There were few complaints at the Woodruff polls as South Carolina´s new voter photo ID requirement was enforced for the first time in Spartanburg County. The re-do election for mayor in Woodruff is the first Spartanburg County election since the photo ID requirement went into effect Jan. 1. The law requires voters to show a S.C. driver´s license, Department of Motor Vehicles ID card, voter registration card with photo, federal military ID or a United States passport to cast a ballot. (Snip) The law was passed in 2012 as a measure to combat voter fraud, according to proponents.
To the world beyond the Beltway, it might not mean much that Bob Woodward of the famed Watergate duo went public with his recent White House run-in. This would be an oversight. (Snip) Distrust of media, encouraged by alternative media seeking to enhance their own standing, has become a tool useful to the very powers the Fourth Estate was constitutionally endowed to monitor. When the president can bypass reporters to reach the public, it is not far-fetched to imagine a time — perhaps now? — when the state controls the message.
There are two stories circulating around Bob Woodward this morning. (Snip) But the White House also wanted the issue to disappear until after the election, so in conjunction with Congress it proposed (and the President specifically endorsed) an enforcement mechanism called sequestration. In exchange for agreeing to a package of $1.2T in cuts with no revenues as a failsafe, Republicans agreed to raise the debt limit high enough that it would not be reached until after the election. The significant point is that the trigger for sequestration was not the same date as the implementation date.
This breaking story is now on Breitbart: Ofa Email: Attack Congressional Republicans on Sequester First, let us revisit the description of Organizing for Action given to us this week by White House Insider: “Well just look under the slimy rock of his Organizing for Action group. The are all 501’nd up now and starting out with millions of donations and the single biggest voter database in the history of American politics. (Snip) It’s global. It’s tied in with the U.N., climate change, gun control, healthcare, taxation, global taxation, currency, education, poverty, hunger, they got every big name item involved
This just in from our Republican Insider, who has been very busy of late regarding the impending sequestration conflict that is being played out 24/7 by the Mainstream Media and the Obama White House. (Snip) Word of that compromise got out and reached the White House. I am guessing it was someone working for Reid who relayed that information. Regardless, it was the very next day that a staffer for one of the Senators working the compromise deal received word from Legislative Affairs to not under any circumstances continue to produce a compromise, or publicize any such deal.
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
