G.O.P. Senators Not Satisfied
as Rice Concedes Error on Libya

New York Times, by Mark Landler and Jeremy W. Peters

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 11/27/2012 4:11:10 PM

WASHINGTON — Susan E. Rice, the ambassador to the United Nations, conceded on Tuesday that she incorrectly described the attack on the American mission in Benghazi, Libya, in September as following a spontaneous protest, rather than being a terrorist attack. But she said she based her statement on the intelligence available at the time and did not intend to mislead the American public. (Snip)“We are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got, and some that we didn’t get,” Senator John McCain

Who told her to lie?

If these self-important buttlicks can´t even get that out of her, there´s really no reason to even bother voting any more...

Funny...... bad intelligence that EVERYONE agreed with during the Clinton administration became a LIE when it didnt pan out under Bush.

An intentional LIE, told to affect the outcome of an election and cover-up an administration´s incompetence becomes an ERROR when caught.

A Senate Select committee to investigate this scandal needs to be created ASAP! This is ten times worse than Watergate!

"error"

translation: "I got caught lying and covering-up for His Majesty´s subversive dereliction of duty, but who cares because we won and the MSM is sweeping this under the rug so go frak yourself."

Sounds like McCain and Graham gave Rice the third degree. Maybe Ayotte too. Good.

I don´t know enough about Ayotte to know what role she is playing here. In these days of identity politics, perhaps the political calculation is that the GOP must present a female face when confronting a lying fraud like Rice --even though a true feminist would say that Susan Rice should be a Big Girl, fully capable of defending herself against Evil Old White Men.

But of course Obama-ites and the MSM only believe that women are fully capable when it suits them.

In any case, it takes guts to push back against the onslaught of hysterical Dems and MSM weasels who shriek "racism!" whenever a Democrat, who happens to be black, is exposed for incompetence and/or dishonesty.

Why isn´t Clinton deposed? Maybe she is too busy at church reflecting upon her Methodist heritage.

Now that Hillary Clinton has spent the last four years demonstrating in all four corners of the world that there is no reason to have a Secretary of State in the Obama administration since so few countries respect us anymore, why would Susan Rice or anyone else want to take such a job?

Does Ms. Rice think she can persuade the Chinese to raise the value of the yuan when all others have failed? Is she planning to try another rhumba duet with another North Korean dictator to make him agree to stop building nuclear weapons?

The only foreign leader Obama has developed friendly relations with is Mohamed Morsi, who, if he achieves his dream of creating a Sharia state in Egypt, will not permit Ms. Rice to enter his country unless she´s wearing a burkha with a full head covering and agrees to wash Mr. Morsi´s feet before discussions can begin.

The Republicans will be doing Susan Rice a big favor if they can prevent the Senate from approving her nomination, but the Republicans don´t control the Senate, so Harry Reid will undoubtedly succeed in making Ms. Rice´s life one of international misery and frustration for the next four years.

From what I heard today, I do not believe any of our Senators gave her a hard time behind the scenes. If this is real anger we see from McCain and Graham, then they will use every tool in the toolbox to prevent her from being confirmed. Any excuses? Then it was all more theater. As soon as Dems blasted any suggestion of combining all these. "Investigations" into one or getting a special prosecutor the Pubbies shut up about it. So I do not have faith in our guys taking this much farther.

Snitchgate -- Sharpton Is Still Lying
Townhall, by Larry Elder    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/18/2014 9:10:04 AM     Post Reply
If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished. The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him -- The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI "informant." Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes "snitching." No, he says he "volunteered" to "cooperate" with the FBI -- and for the most honorable of motives. Why would the government-hating "civil rights" leader cooperate with the feds?

Time Bombs in Democratic Coalition
National Review, by Mona Charen    Original Article

The Republican Party is roiling with internal conflicts, say the analysts. The tea party is confronting the establishment. The noninterventionists are at war (forgive the expression) with the interventionists. The libertarians would like the party to endorse same-sex marriage. Fair enough. These conflicts will play out during the primaries in 2016, and we´ll discover whether they are serious fault lines or merely squabbles. Meanwhile, the Democratic Party, supposedly the firm fortress of the middle class, minorities and women, is actually showing some internal stresses as well. Little fissures are snaking through the crust, perhaps reflecting tectonic movement beneath. The president´s approval rating has

No need for a rush
to judgment on Obamacare
Los Angeles Times, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/17/2014 9:28:37 AM     Post Reply
The first open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act ended this week with roughly 7.5 million people obtaining policies through the new state insurance exchanges, including more than 1.3 million at Covered California. That´s an amazing and welcome result, considering how badly many of the exchanges stumbled when sign-ups began in October. Nevertheless, it´s far too early to judge the success or failure of the healthcare law, given that key tests of the program´s sustainability have yet to be passed. Almost all of the exchanges got off to a wretched start, particularly the federally managed ones that shared a mind-bogglingly

Winning Streak

Obamacare hasn´t "won"—but it´s making a pretty impressive run. The headlines about the Affordable Care Act have turned positive lately, and they´re starting to pile up. The most dire predictions from the law´s critics simply haven´t panned out, and now Democrats are headed into another big health care fight—the confirmation of a new Health and Human Services secretary—with stronger real-world evidence than they´ve had before. There´s important information we still don´t have about enrollment, and big risks loom on the horizon. Things could change. But right now, the tide seems to be turning in the White House´s favor. Narratives feed on themselves, and

Liberals attack female fighting misogyny
USA Today, by Kirsten Powers    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/17/2014 9:07:04 AM     Post Reply
War on women alert: One of the most forceful fighters against misogyny in the modern era is under attack. Somali-born Ayaan Hirsi Ali has been a vocal critic of women´s oppression under Islamic law. She´s blasted arranged marriage, legally sanctioned domestic violence, genital mutilation, and the killing of adulteresses and rape victims. Despite being a supporter of abortion rights, an atheist, and an advocate of gay and women´s rights, she is despised by many who claim to be defenders of women´s rights. Over the years, they have worked to delegitimize her in the hopes that she will be silenced.

You´re Wrong, Bart Ehrman

Well, it´s Easter time, and that means that the mainstream media and publishing houses can be counted upon to issue de-bunking attacks on orthodox Christianity. The best-publicized of these is Bart Ehrman´s How Jesus Became God. Many by now know at least the outlines of Ehrman´s biography: once a devout Bible-believing evangelical Christian, trained at Wheaton College, the alma mater of Billy Graham, he saw the light and became an agnostic scholar and is now on a mission to undermine the fundamental assumptions of Christianity.In this most recent tome, Ehrman lays out what is actually a very old thesis, going back

Obama shouldn´t embrace
race-rousing Sharpton
Chicago Tribune, by John Kass    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 4/16/2014 9:23:31 AM     Post Reply
It was disappointing the other day to see President Barack Obama embracing the vulgar race hustler Al Sharpton. President Obama once eloquently confronted race in a memorable speech in Philadelphia in 2008. That speech was remarkable and honest and, to borrow a favorite word of the political left that still fawns over him, it was nuanced. But there was nothing particularly remarkable about Obama standing next to the preening Sharpton, speaking in New York to his National Action Network. Except that Obama expertly used a message of victimization to begin energizing black voters, who provide the electoral foundation for the Democratic Party.

White House blames fox for

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. The bushy-tailed visitor

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

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

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
