Following on their meeting with UN Ambassador Susan Rice, Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John McCain (R-AZ), and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) released a statement bashing her performance and stating that President Obama had serious questions to answer about Rice’s statements in the aftermath of the Benghazi terrorist attacks that resulted in the deaths of four Americans. The text of the statement: We respectfully disagree with the White House’s statement today that ‘there are no unanswered questions’ about Ambassador Rice’s September 16 Sunday show appearances and the talking points she used.
We have three stories now. Clapper, the FBI and the CIA did it. Meanwhile the locus in quo has never been properly investigated. The administration won´t release the photo´s of the situation room. If we knew who was there and who wasn´t it would be invaluable. There would be liaison officers present representing various agencies, it would be nice to talk to them. And the purported terrorist mastermind is sitting in a downtown Benghazi hotel sipping Orange frappes without a care in the world. Mindboggling.
Nothing is going to come of this. America is not the country it once was that held people accountable for their actions, including the president and his administration. This is the most corrupt administration in the history of America.
IF Obama did give the order to save the Ambassador and military attache and Seals there MUST be a written order...SHOW IT...Just SHOW THE ORDER...LIAR
Report exactly WHERE was Obama at the time of the attack???...7 hours...
Why was Obama running missiles and armaments through Turkey as a conduit and into Syria ???
Why was the Turkish counsel there in Benghazi???
30,000 Missing missiles and Manpads launchers,,,WHY??? Is this Fast and Furious II Missile Running??? Why was the KNOWN Arms Dealer ship at Benghazi´s port??? This is traitorous SEDITION is the president is arms running...And if to as thought an enemy, Al Qaeda, of the USA?? We have a traitor in the WH...
Ambassador Stevens was raped as reported because the USA stood by and let our supported rebel forces rape Kaddaffi...PAYBACK by Russia...
Is this a proxy war with Russia...it would seem so, as Russia is angered with our turn over of their allies Libya and now in process Syria, to the Muslim Brotherhood...
Was Russia sending us a message on Election Day with RUSSIAN NUCLEAR SUBMARINES off our East Coast.???
Who told those Seals to light themselves up with laser so as to light themselves up to draw fire....only to get murdered...Something they would never have done ... and ONLY did if they had been told that Drone above was giving them cover...and was there to draw out and kill the enemy
Republicans need to do a Google search on the meaning of beating a dead horse..Getting the truth on Benghazi or spending cuts in the fiscal cliff are two big examples. Obama won with both these issues on the political map,meaning people don´t care about either.
Why is consumer confidence suddenly at a 5 year high? Supposedly it´s because the jobs picture is getting brighter.Sorry but I don´t buy that explanation,it´s pure propaganda to convince people the economy is getting better.We´re still seeing 365-400,000 people getting pink slips a week.
If consumer confidence is getting better,it has to be among Obama voters who see no interruption in their flow of government benefits.
If the jobs picture is getting brighter as this conclusion purports,then why are left wing groups clamoring for more unemployment extensions?
An honest and forthright (I can dream) senator---as opposed to the preening McVain or the rookie being told not to spoil her political future---would tell the American people that the story being told re: Benghazi is a tissue of lies; and that O´s administration is a house of cards, a den of thieves and a nest of traitors.
This show is a "razzle/dazzle" move by Washington DC politicians....
The pubbies are talking tough -- and verbally smacking obama -- but it´s all been worked out and this b@ich will be the sec of state even after she and gen clark told bubba clinton NOT to kill osama back when bubba was in charge. That cost 3,000 Americans lives on 9/11. They are all the same....
Look, I hate to be this way, but the only way to get this country to begin to care about Benghazi is to have all four families call a news conference and demand Obama come clean. Without that, nothing will happen. Zip. Zero. Nada.
It is shocking that there is not ONE moral member in Congress of the democrat persuasion. If I was a loved one of one of the victims, I would be out there talking to anyone who would listen. I know they have broken hearts, but I would want to expose those who allowed him to die and refused to send help. I would take this battle on, for the HONOR of my loved one, and the HONOR of my country. They died for it, was it in vain?
I don´t see this as throwing in the towel YET! They are soft as Charmin, but they have no backing by the MSM or the courts and must tread softly. I´m not sure these "investigators(?)" are smart enough to have laid down a long term plan, but if they keep the pressure on, eventually the truth will come out and hussein will be Nixon II.
We hear about the four Americans killed on a daily basis which was due to a most despicable act of cowardice by the CIC, or was it? But these deaths go far beyond the deaths of four Americans. There were thirty or more others that this administration was willing to sacrifice, or maybe did sacrifice. What happened to them. Did they even get out and if so how? Where are they and why haven´t these "investigators(?)" gone looking for their testimony.
To even consider that OUR Nobel winning commander in chief (far from it in reality) was willing to throw almost forty Americans on the pyre of self-agrandizement is beyond comprehension except within the framework of "siding with the muslims." He´s proven he´s not only willing but has in fact has done so with Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, and now Gaza and Syria. He needs to be holed up in Gitmo with no chance of legal representation.
Has anyone (hello, anyone?) questioned the so-called 30 folks that escaped the Benghazi consulate while 4 Americans were murdered? Do these 30 even exist or was it all theater for the masses, like Hillary dodging bullets in Afghanistan? Crickets.
I doubt we will ever know all there is to know about this, about F & F, about all the capers of this most corrupt and reckless Administration in the history of the world.
And I think we are whistling Dixie if we honestly expect anyone in our government to even attempt to get to the bottom of it. They are great at kicking the can and doing photo ops, and are worthless to America and to the American people.
Neither do I think it is important to know WHY the Benghazi slaughter was deliberately allowed to happen. It was preventable, yet it happened. That´s all we need to know really.
What I DO think is important is that we get this poseur out of office, start hanging some people out to dry, and that includes incompetent and worthless Republicans as well as ALL the Democrats in office.
Officials prefer to just move along rather than get entangled in real problems. If we want solutions, we had best look to ourselves for those solutions as they will come from no other place.
I suggest we de-fund our worthless, but very dangerous federal government. It has bankrupted the nation, is responsible for countless deaths, has removed more freedoms than most people even realized they had.
The buggy whip wore out its welcome and necessity, and so has the US government. If we people are too helpless to manage our own lives then let the states look after us - NOT the US government.
A LARGE segment of the American public are beginning to seriously upset me.
Exactly #10. There was no consulate in Benghazi, it was a CIA operational headquarters to move Libyan weapons to Al Qaida. Which was to be move said weapons to Syria. Russia put a hit on the Benghazi operation. Thus dead CIA Seals and an ambassador. And of course now the cover up for weapons running to terrorists.
#10 thanks for the Canada Free Press article. Why is it that we have to read the truth from papers and websites not in the USA? I think Doug Hagmann has asked questions which finally are getting to the bottom of what/why Benghazi happened.
Regardless, though, the fact that four Americans were murdered when all it would have taken to save them would have been to deploy our own nearby forces. Obama and his administration are guilty as hell of treason and murder - aka "high crimes and misdemeanors". Can anyone say Impeachment time?
Obama won´t answer any questions about anything. They will have to get to the truth without him. However, we all know the truth. It was Obama that gave the stand down order. It was Obama that let his employees die because of his failed Middle East policy. Hillary won´t tell the truth either. It will be a slow process, but we will find someone that will talk.
I´m waiting for that dynamic patriot who will arise and lead the producers of this country in a Gandhi-like protest, say next April 15. We will refuse to mail in tax returns, refuse to patronize known Obama supporters, including TV, and doctors could refuse to care for any but life/death emergencies. Our demands? Immediate criminal investigation of exec and congressional branches plus D of J. The investigators would be the governors of all 50 states with powers to subpoena try and convict. Whoops. Was that a drone I hear beeping ?overhead?
I’d like to interrupt your current cable news broadcast about [insert Selfie-Gate, Santa Claus´ skin color, Handshake-Gate, or the War on Christmas™] to throw some cold water on everything: The Associated Press reports that missiles fired by a U.S. drone obliterated a convoy of vehicles heading to a wedding in Yemen, killing at least 13 people. As with most reports of these military strikes in Yemen, there are conflicting reports: The Associated Press reports 13 deaths and cites an unnamed Yemeni official who said there were suspected al Qaeda militants among the convoy; but Reuters, on the other hand, says
ESPN has changed its mind and has decided to allow a St. Louis Children’s Medical Center to air an ad referencing “the birth of Jesus” and “God’s healing message.” In an email to CNSNews.com, Josh Krulewitz, VP of ESPN Communications says, “We have again reviewed the ads submitted for the SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center and have concluded that we will accept the original requested commercial.” “It will run in Saturday’s VCU at Northern Iowa basketball game on ESPNU. This decision is consistent with our practice of individual review of all ads under our commercial advocacy standards.”
WASHINGTON- President Obama will meet Friday with a group of newly elected mayors, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and New York Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio, for a discussion on job creation, a White House official said. The president plans to discuss federal-local partnerships that could spur growth, the official said. Obama has regularly tried to engage local officials on his largely stalled economic agenda. His plans for creating jobs by increasing spending on roads, bridges, ports and other projects have found little traction with Republicans in Washington. (Snip) The group includes mayors and mayors-elect, mostly Democrats, from a dozen
Jonah Goldberg devotes a column to the foundational lies of Obamacare with special attention to the third — the one that promised billions of dollars in savings. “This lie took several forms,” Goldberg notes, and looks at a few of them, all of them false. “Obamacare may have been sold on a trinity of lies,” Goldberg concludes, “but it turns out it’s also lies all the way down.” Goldberg’s column is well timed to coincide with the recognition accorded to the first of the foundational lies of Obamacare — “If you like your health plan, you can keep your health
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking GOP member of the Senate Budget Committee, said Thursday that Senate Republicans plan to filibuster the budget deal that House Budget Committee chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) cut with Senate Budget Committee chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA). The deal passed the House 332-94, with 62 Republicans and 32 Democrats voting against it. The bill is expected to come up for votes in the Senate early next week, either Monday or Tuesday. The type of filibuster Sessions spoke of is not the traditional “talking filibuster” like the one Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) launched earlier this
ARLINGTON, Va. — On a chilly airport tarmac in Washington, D.C., the four daughters of Air Force Col. Francis Jay McGouldrick Jr. stood hand in hand yesterday, waiting for their father to come home. He’d been gone since Dec. 13, 1968, when he disappeared after a midair collision with another aircraft over Laos’ Savannakhet province. His girls were ages 4 to 13 at the time. Since then, they’ve waited in a strange sort of purgatory, never certain that he was gone. Delta Flight 938 from Atlanta touched down at 10:50 a.m. and slowly rolled up to Gate 19. The girls,
The House on Thursday approved a two-year budget deal that turns off $63 billion in sequester spending cuts, handing a major victory to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio.). Large majorities in both parties backed the bill in a 332-94 vote. Only 62 Republicans defected despite harsh criticism of the deal by conservative groups that said it did too little to cut spending. Heritage Action, the Club for Growth and other groups said they would negatively score votes in favor of the legislation, but those threats failed to create a stampede against the bill. Instead, members rallied around Boehner, who had strongly pushed
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
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
Fox News host Megyn Kelly has made herself the center of a racial controversy by declaring that Jesus Christ and Santa Claus are white. On Wednesday night, Kelly was responding to an article by Slate writer Aisha Harris, who wrote an article entitled “ Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore .” The popular news host told viewers of “The Kelly File,” her hit FNC program, “When I saw this headline, I kinda laughed and I said, ‘Oh, this is ridiculous. Yet another person claiming it´s racist to have a white Santa.’ And by the way, for all you kids
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
THE Internet has been abuzz over the spectacle of President Obama and the prime ministers of Britain and Denmark snapping a photo of themselves — a “selfie,” to use the mot du jour — with a smartphone at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela in South Africa on Tuesday. Leaving aside whether it was appropriate, the moment captured the democratization of image making that is a hallmark of our gadget-filled, technologically rich era. Manifestly undemocratic, in contrast, is the way Mr. Obama’s administration — in hypocritical defiance of the principles of openness and transparency he campaigned on — has systematically tried
