Susan Rice’s tarnished resume
Washington Post, by Dana Milbank

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/18/2012 4:56:51 AM

President Obama had a rare “bring-it-on” moment when ABC News’s Jonathan Karl asked him about threats by Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham to block the confirmation of Susan Rice, should he nominate her for secretary of state.(Snip)Obama’s over-the-top defense of Rice was surprising, particularly in contrast to the president’s relative indifference in accepting the resignation of CIA chief David Petraeus, one of the most capable public servants. And it was disappointing, because McCain, even if wrong on the particulars, is right about Rice.

And FTA:

Back when she was an assistant secretary of state during the Clinton administration, she appalled colleagues by flipping her middle finger at Richard Holbrooke during a meeting with senior staff at the State Department, according to witnesses.

Already self-besmirched.

This was nothing more than a brilliant head fake to get McCain all wee wee-ed up.

It´s been Kerry for Sec of State all along.

I disagree #2- I think Obama has certain promises he must try to keep-- his appointments at the SUPCO should have gotten scrutiny and eventually turned down.

I think he´s calculated that the press will lay down on this too-- and it seems even the lapdogs can howl about Rice!

With this nugget, Ms. Rice´s favorables should spike.

Just sayin´.

If the stupendously rich John Kerry takes a cabinet position, then Republican Scott Brown is well positioned to win the special election to fill Kerry´s vacant MA Senate seat.
Time will tell who will be nominated for SecState and SecDef.

It´s clear what happened here when you consider the liberal mind. Rice was sent out specifically because she was clueless about Benghase. She could always fall back on her ignorance to account for the lies should the media not provide adequate protection.

Rice was to do her duty for the agenda and would be rewarded with Sec of State. This is the way Chicago works. The government is used for maintenance of power. Once attaining power you use the tax money and position to hold on to the power.

And any lie and illegality is ok if used to maintain power as the people will be better off under liberal government. It is simply immoral to allow the people to be under conservative rule.

She was the one who turned down the Yemeni offer of Bin Laden´s head during Clinton´s time. It wasn´t long after that more American targets were hit overseas and then 9-11.
She is a traitor and a third rate bureaucrat.

Don´t forget the third member of the trio excoriating Rice - Kelly Ayotte. The liberals want you to forget that this is not a based on gender, only a liberal´s willful lying to the American people.

Remember this when you read articles about Rice´s poor performance as UN Ambassador.

I didn´t get through the 2000 comments but has someone raised the fact that it was via Susan Rice in the Clinton Administration that the word "Genocide" was removed from all U.S. government documents concerning the the mass-genocidal Rwanda killings? What was it 80,000 people?

Think she´s going to give a flip about Benghazi? Or that Hillary will?

#8, I think you´re close, but my take is a little different. Kerry will eventually get SecState and Powell will go to SecDef. He´s done the State thing, and wore 4 stars. Both will be disasters for the country, though, IMHO.

#13 it was 800,000 and Rice was heavily involved. Samantha Power, Obama´s amazon warrior, referred to her as a bystander to genocide. I don´t think she´d get 40 votes to confirm.

So what´s 800,00 dead in Rawanda when one is an Affirmative Action hire where culpability does not exist...lies and lack of meaningful qualifications mean nothing in the presence of melanin and progesterone ,...being Black and Female is more effective than the Iron Dome and comes with the guarantee that outrageous heinous decisions are absolutely acceptable...and any who might call attention to the truth...are drummed out like bit players in "Lord of the Flies".....
Rice wears the same armor that Obama expects will keep him in play as he kills America and her Constitution....and demonises any who dare whisper the truth....the word "Blackmail" takes on new meaning

Suzie is way out of her league as a possible Secretary of State. The one thing she would be qualified for is Secretary of the noon meeting of Alcholics Anonymous in Washington D.C., and then only if she has been sober for one year. Looks like she couldn´t even take that commitment.

I do believe that Obama is absolutely enjoying himself floating names for top posts that will wee-wee up the GOP and especially conservatives. After all, national security issues are a tool to be used for political purposes to this gang. #5. Yes. Rice is all those things and if she does what Obama and/or Hilary tell her to, she can expect to move along to the next high-paying secure federal job - whether qualified or not.

Cults In Our Midst: Patty Hearst

The Federalist, by Stella Morabito    Original Article

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms. This one was perfectly timed — on the first anniversary of the Joker placing one of his kettle bombs in front of little Martin Richard, who had moments

Feds Begin Fingerprinting ´High Risk´
Medicare Providers and Suppliers

Four years after Obamacare became law, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is notifying Medicare providers and suppliers of new fingerprint-based background checks. Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste. The new requirements are spelled

Obama Administration Wants UN to Come Up With

The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
