When it comes to metaphors for the Obama administration, it is hard to top the rise and fall of Susan Rice. Her ascension to the inner circle was born of her loyalty to candidate Obama, and she failed to become secretary of state because she was loyal to President Obama instead of the truth. Her demise offers a clinic about the dangers of ambitious amateurs playing politics, but that amounts to a hill of beans to the White House. The sacrifice of Rice is just another bump in the road to shielding Obama from accountability for the Benghazi debacle.
Two truths buried in this story are the most important: Obama gave 20 F16’s to Morsi, and in Benghazi he was running arms to al Queda in Syria. He is arming our enemies, the Islamists sworn to killing us.
AND -- her highness hillary´s fall and concession is a joke. She´s a lush and has had many falls while in office. She fell and hurt her arm on the White House sidewalk -- she fell while entering Air Force One -- now WE are expected to believe that she had a virus and she fainted and got a concession???
That´s what happens when you drink to much. You fall down a lot. I wonder if now that she´s fallen -- will she be able to "get up" to bat for 2016?
Obama plays the Repubs like a fiddle. If Rice had had to go thru confirmation the Repub weenies would then have had to confront Obama on Benghzi. I believe God is letting Obama strut and strut big on the world stage...like a god. Too bad so many good Christian blacks are snookered by him. But that is always the case..as Jamie Foxx said about race..it is everything. The black messiah is just that..black in color. Blacks worship black and so does the popular culture. Anything that is profane, anti American, anti Christian, anti Israel and anti middle class is favored by the world. And many in the middle class go along. The only safe group to demonize is white, Christian middle class people. We are the devil to the world. And, so many Catholics, liberal Protestants and white union members would join the Dems in the march to end our time on earth. That day will indeed happen. It is called The Rapture in my church, even tho the world is not in the Bible. The ´act´ is described in easily understood words. So, hand on Christians. We are in the world but not of the world. This is not our home. Thank You LORD.
Exactly #1. Jets to Morsi while he imprisons Christians. Weapons to al Queda. Support of African regimes against their own people. Releasing terrorists from Gitmo. Failure to prosecute the Ft Hood shooter. Running guns to Mexico, whose drug lords are in cahoots with al Queda in South America. Guns are now in the hands of these terrorists infiltrating America. They have auto AK47´s...we have semi autos. And also, he wants to disarm Americans while the sleeper cells have guns. Iranian terrorists are infiltrating America thru Mexico. Attacking free speech by siding with Islam, on defamation of religion speech. He has never set one foot in Israel and refuses to meet with its Prime Minister.
I continue to believe that the sacrifice of Susan Rice was the work of Val Jarrett. Val could not tolerate another nasty black woman in the power circle, so val designated Susan to be the spokescritter for those sunday shows, knowing that the truth would come out quickly. That knocked Susan Rice out of the running for Hillary´s job, and eliminated her from the power circle of President Zero. The next move might be to send her away, and replace her at the UN with some other lackey.
Benghazi is very similar to the Iran Contra affair during the Reagan administration. The Obama administration armed al Qaeda fighters for action in Syria against the Assad regime, so that the US did not have to get officially involved in the conflict. Obama kept this policy secret, as he didn´t relish the bad press he´d get from arming terrorists with munitions left over from the Gaddafi regime. It´s actually a reasonable policy, but the spooks left embassy staff hung out to dry, and Obama couldn´t tell the public the truth about it.
The Sec. o. St. has a problem with gravity brought on by an affinity to the fruit of the vine and now the country is supposed to embrace a certified liar who bad-mouthed our country and who couldn’t tell the truth about Vietnam and who evades paying sales taxes on his yacht by parking it in a neighboring state.
A pawn is a sacrificial piece in a chess game. Barack Obama sacrificed Susan Rice in his game to name Jon Kerry as Secretary of State and to hide the truth of what he did not do to protect Americans in Benghazi. Barack Obama is a prime example of why Americans fear ever giving up our right to own and bear arms.
If only there was a modicum of balance in the performance of the press in reporting anything, anything, it would be different.
My local daily paper, whose readership is within the three most Republican counties in New York did not deign to report, at all, on confirmation of Gov. Scott Walker in the Wisconsin recall election, when asked why it was omitted.
From the editor; "While many believe this to be an enormous story, our editors who were on that night did not feel that way." Further, when I suggested the papers editors were all too much of a mind to recognize the unfairness of the omission, he wrote, "Don’t really have the time to take part in the conspiracies that so many accuse the media of these days."
I am considering not renewing my subscription (due this month) but, for this octogenarian it is my only source of obituaries recording the passage of my friends and acquaintances.
I contend that Rice is a diversion, but I wouldn´t go so far as to say she wasn´t O´s choice for SOS. Kerry is a punt. And a payoff.
As the mentioned on the Home Page:"... shielding Obama from accountability for the Benghazi debacle. is what all the chess piece movement is about, because, I believe, we wouldn´t find that it was Obama who was responsible, but ValJar, and that would be bad optics, indeed.
Texas Rep. Steve Stockman’s decision to challenge Sen. John Cornyn in the GOP primary next year stunned the political world earlier this week. Now, there’s only one question on peoples’ minds: Could Stockman actually win this thing? No, according to Evan Smith, the editor-in-chief of the Texas Tribune. In an interview for Post TV, Smith said that Stockman ceiling in the primary is “between 20 and 25 percent”, largely because even among tea partiers who helped propel Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to an upset win in a 2012 Senate primary, the House member is too extreme in his positions. “He makes Cruz
A Chinese naval vessel tried to force a U.S. guided missile warship to stop in international waters recently, causing a tense military standoff in the latest case of Chinese maritime harassment, according to defense officials. The guided missile cruiser USS Cowpens, which recently took part in disaster relief operations in the Philippines, was confronted by Chinese warships in the South China Sea near Beijing’s new aircraft carrier Liaoning, according to officials familiar with the incident. “On December 5th, while lawfully operating in international waters in the South China Sea, USS Cowpens and a PLA Navy vessel had an encounter that
Many in New York’s professional and cultural elite have long supported President Obama’s health care plan. But now, to their surprise, thousands of writers, opera singers, music teachers, photographers, doctors, lawyers and others are learning that their health insurance plans are being canceled and they may have to pay more to get comparable coverage, if they can find it. They are part of an unusual informal health insurance system that has developed in New York in which independent practitioners were able to get lower insurance rates through group plans, typically set up by their professional associations or chambers of commerce.
‘I don’t want to be emotional but this is one of the greatest moments of my life,” declared Nelson Mandela upon meeting the Spice Girls in 1997. So I like to think he would have appreciated the livelier aspects of his funeral observances. The Prince of Wales, who was also present on that occasion in Johannesburg, agreed with Mandela on the significance of their summit with the girls: “It is the second-greatest moment in my life,” he said. “The greatest was when I met them the first time.” His Royal Highness and at least two Spice Girls (reports are unclear)
If you’re wondering why Virginia Republicans are willing to fight over the attorney general’s race, it’s because the post has become almost as important as the governorship. Not only could the outcome impact continuing legal issues surrounding the Affordable Care Act, it would likely impact the number of Republicans in the U.S. Congress. Right now, Virginia has eight Republicans and three Democrats in the U.S. House. Prior to the redistricting — which was controlled by a Republican General Assembly and signed by Republican Gov. Bob McDonnell — Republicans held just a six-to-five majority. (Note: A couple of those races actually switched
The White House’s newest staffer is John Podesta, the 64-year-old founder of the Center for American Progress (CAP), the head of President Obama’s 2008 transition team, a former chief of staff to President Clinton, and a former lobbyist and cofounder, with his brother Tony, of the Podesta Group. You know: an outsider. Podesta is joining the administration for one year as White House counselor specializing in energy policy. And despite the fact that he has done more than any other unelected official to shape the policies of cap-and-trade and green energy subsidies, and to employ and place the talent that has
When supporters of Barack Obama feel compelled to write articles hotly declaring that the president isn’t finished, as many have this week, you know one thing: The idea that he might be finished is very much on their minds. In one sense, the argument is entirely unnecessary. Of course Obama isn’t finished. He’s the president, for God’s sake. Even if his troubles persist and deepen, he still bestrides the narrow world like a Colossus. After all, George W. Bush was “finished” once Republicans lost control of the House and Senate in 2006, yet he managed to turn the Iraq War around with
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
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
Columnist Charles Krauthammer attacked new Obamacare rules unveiled by HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a late Thursday conference call, saying the Obama administration is “approach[ing] banana republic lawlessness” by issuing the decrees. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’ Bret Baier on a panel with Juan Williams and Judge Andrew Napolitano, as the three reacted to Sebelius’ new directives for insurance companies. “This is exactly a reaction to a deep understanding among Democrats that [Obamacare] is a train wreck,” he said. “And it’s a panic reaction. As the judge said, this is utterly lawless. This now approaches banana republic lawlessness.
WASHINGTON – It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement of the budget deal.“Embrace the suck,” House minority leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi told fellow Democrats Thursday morning, a source told Politico.“We need to get this off the table so we can go forward,” she added. It’s a way of telling her colleagues the budget deal negotiated with Republicans is the best they can get. Democrats are fuming that the bipartisan budget deal doesn’t extend unemployment benefits for more than a million Americans. One of Pelosi’s top lieutenants, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, said Thursday it
