PHNOM PENH, Cambodia- President Barack Obama is sending Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to the Middle East in hopes that she can help mediate an end to bloody conflict in the region. A deputy White House national security adviser says Clinton will depart Tuesday from Cambodia, where she had accompanied Obama on a visit to Southeast Asia. Clinton will begin her Mideast diplomacy by meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem. She also will meet with Palestinian officials in Ramallah before heading to Cairo to meet with leaders in Egypt.
Just as well she is off to the Middle East. Judging by the photos of the "preezy of the united steezy" groping every female "leader" in Burma, Hillary is an annoying third wheel on his excellent adventure to Asia.
Yeah, that´s the ticket. Send Mrs.Clinton. I am sure she can handle this assignment as well as she handled the lack of security in Banghazi. A Republican SOS would have already been fired and be facing criminal charges. Does everyone get an Out Of Jail Free card when they register as a democrat or are they just reserved for the truly elite.
He needs to check out her picture on Drudge this morning. She looks so bored. After all where is the value in what she does. Never mind four American patriots were murdered on her watch - she wants to retire with all her millions (maybe billions?) in Australia where she won´t be taxed to death.
I wonder what American threat or carrot she carries with her. She has some instructions and I would love to know what they are. You can be sure, they will not be in Israel´s best interests.I just hope they will not be powerful enough to sway Netanyaheu.
If Mizzuz Clinton is going to be in the area, the Israelis had better make sure the Iron Dome is working. Of course, with her diplomatic expertise, Mizzuz probably thinks the Iron Dome is a new hairdo.
Ditto #28 ~ Israel is a sovereign nation and does not require our permission to do ANYTHING it deems imperative for their security. But I am looking forward to those photos of HRC dodging missiles as she waddles down the tarmac. Note to HRC ~ hey babe if your plane has a shower (or even a sink)a little ´Herbal Essence´ wouldn´t hurt. Does Huma give ´good shampoo´?
Notice that every time a crisis or incident occurs President Obama always delegates an individual to handle whatever has happened.
Then if that individual is shown by the liberal media to have succeeded, reality aside, Obama will then take credit, but if the individual cannot be shown to have succeeded, under the bus he or she goes.
So Obama sends one on the Arab (terrorist) best friend to tell Israel to just let their people die instead of defending themselves. I like the idea already expressed that they should bulldoze Gaza to the bedrock and then declare it a free fire zone. Shoot anything that moves in it. The Arabs cause their own problems; they let the wackjobs shoot rockets at the Israelis any do nothing to stop them and then act surprise when the IDF blows it up.
You just can’t fix stupid, you just need to eliminate it
She won´t be there to "mediate" anything, her mission is to demand of Israel that they stop the self defense measures because hamas is running scared. Barry promised to side with the muslims in any conflict but he has proven himself impotent in that job also. This mission has the makings of a huge failure for the 0bama administration but then, what else is new?

It´s real simple. It took a few days, but Hillary will tell Bibi that new arms supplies and parts which come from the US will not be forthcoming unless Israel conforms with a US-brokered ´peace.´ The Muslims will get billions in aid. End story.
I sincerely hope that the IDF has plenty of supplies put aside, that they can get parts/ammo through other channels and Bibi tells Hillary to go count every grain of sand in the Negev.
That was my thought---a little more legitimate absence than an Australian wine testing though. And don´t forget, Hillary had a great aunt who married a Jew (even though she screamed at Bebee Netanyahu for an hour on the phone a few months ago.)
Hill will probably head straight to Israel because they are kind enough to not sneer in her face for being a female. This time the Israelis have the upper hand because Hamas is stunned that they wasted most of the missiles and rockets. Congress could have her flown back at any time to testify but why bother when they already know where the fault bucks stop. Besides can barry really go home and face Michelle after his star struck shuffle with the lovely little lady in what he called Burma?
The vast majority of Americans must have the IQ of 80 or below. Every time the US has any sort of majory emergency or calamity dometically or world wide, BO, MO SOS, DOD and numerous unelected and elected decision-making people are out-of-WDC, out of the country or on recess. Does anyone in the federal government who is paid by tax payers actually do any work in the US, other than engage in personal and privately profitable dalliances, with women, men, taxes, gifts, jaunts and junkets?
Why even have a government? Or bother paying taxes? All these grifters do is enjoy lavish vacays, expensive wine and dine, high-price whores, 2nd and 3rd homes in Newport, Bahamas and Zurich, no questions asked for kids and grankids into elite private colleges with 2.0 GPAs, and unbridled inside trader information in market manipulation and massive investor return.
We have lost for some time the "government of the people, for the people and by the people". The adage should be the government takes from the people for the government and by the government.
Regardless of party, who should ever care anymore what they do. They will fleece us blind and spend however they want.
Frankly stop voting, stop working (then you do not have to pay taxes), let your house go into foreclosure and live there for five to eight years without paying anything other than utilities, go on food stamps, get a free phone and minutes, place on any application for any job or school that you are black and get a housing allowance. Let this benevolent government pay for everything. ´Bout time the producers start taking back, rather than giving back.
This was remarked/made fun of this morning on talk radio. The host who is an "independent" said that sending a female SecState to Muslim countries was a joke. The PIAPS is a bigger joke than most being in this position. Bibi is a gentleman and will listen to her but will ultimately do want needs to be done to defend Israel. Abbas is scum and will treat her with all of the respect do a camel flea. This will also keep Hillarious out of the country so that they can come up with story # 5(or is it 6? It´s hard to keep track.) for Benghazi-gate. Is the Huma Weiner going with? Or are they going to send Susan Rice the incompetent with her? Oops can I say that without being called a racist by the ingrates at the CBC. Oh man I´d better watch my six. LAUGH OUT LOUD!
MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry evidently exists to say ridiculous things. The same radical who declared that all children belong to the state said Sunday that “Obamacare” is the new “n-word.” (Video) “Good morning, I’m Melissa Harris-Perry. I want to talk today about a controversial word,” the Tulane professor began Sunday’s show. “It’s a word that has been with us for years. And like it or not, it’s indelibly printed in the pages of American history. A word that was originally intended as a derogatory term, meant to shame, and divide, and demean. The word was conceived of by a group of
The world´s leading technology companies have united to demand sweeping changes to US surveillance laws, urging an international ban on bulk collection of data to help preserve the public´s “trust in the internet”. In their most concerted response yet to disclosures by the National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Twitter and AOL have published an open letter to Barack Obama and Congress on Monday, throwing their weight behind radical reforms already proposed by Washington politicians. “The balance in many countries has tipped too far in favour of the state and away from the rights of
Rep. Steve Stockman, a conservative firebrand who has been dogged by ethical questions and campaign debt, withdrew as a candidate for re-election Monday and instead filed as a Republican challenger to U.S. Sen. John Cornyn. The filing gives Cornyn the Tea Party challenge in the Texas Republican primary that he long sought to avoid in a state where the GOP electorate has moved increasingly to the right. Stockman has prided himself on being one of the most conservative members of Congress. Soon after arriving, he refused to suport Rep. John Boehner for Speaker of the House, voting only “present.” He
Power Abuse: Emboldened by its shakedown of mortgage lenders, the administration is now accusing car lenders of racism. On what grounds? It refuses to say, raising suspicion of another witch hunt. Some of the nation´s largest auto lenders, including Ally Bank, are now under federal investigation for allegedly discriminating against black and Latino borrowers — a deplorable crime, if true. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is heading the new crusade with help from the Justice Department. It claims it has "statistical evidence" showing car lenders and dealers marking up loan prices for minorities vs. whites.
DETROIT- The U.S. government ended up losing $10.5 billion on the General Motors bailout, but it says the alternative would have been far worse. The Treasury Department sold its final shares of the Detroit auto giant on Monday, recovering $39 billion of the $49.5 billion it spent to save the dying automaker at the height of the financial crisis five years ago. Without the bailout, the country would have lost more than a million jobs, and the economy could have slipped from recession into a depression, Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said on a conference call with reporters. Now, the American
LOS ANGELES— Eleanor Parker, who was nominated for Academy Awards three times for her portrayals of strong-willed women and played a scheming baroness in "The Sound of Music," has died at 91. Family friend Richard Gale said Parker died Monday morning due to complications from pneumonia. "She passed away peacefully, surrounded by her children at a medical facility near her home in Palm Springs," Gale added. Parker was nominated for Oscars in 1950, 1951 and 1955, but then saw her career begin to wane in the early 1960s. Her last memorable role came in 1965´s "The Sound of Music," in which
“I think I just became the first president to ever publicly mention Area 51,” President Barack Obama joked at Sunday night’s Kennedy Center Honors event at The White House. The line got a big laugh from the audience in attendance, but he may have been telling the truth. This year’s honorees included Carlos Santana, Herbie Hancock, and Billy Joel. But it was during his remarks about actress Shirley MacLaine, who wrote about her own UFO sightings in her memoir Sage-ing While Age-ing that the president brought up the top secret military base in southern Nevada. “Now, when you first become
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
