Hillary in Hiding
American Thinker, by Daren Jonescu

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 12/17/2012 5:43:01 AM

For once, I am inclined to believe Hillary Clinton. The U.S. Secretary of State, suffering from a sick stomach, has reportedly fainted and bumped her head. As a result, her spokespeople have already announced that she will be unable to testify at the Benghazi hearings, although she was not due to appear until December 20, many days after the vaguely reported fainting spell. Already, the internet is resounding with a chorus of "How convenient!" (See here and here, for example.) Many, upon hearing this news, are assuming that Clinton, who has been hedging for a month on whether to appear

She´s probably having panic seizures over the idea of having to lie on camera before the whole country. She´s probably also trying to protect her integrity for a 2016 run.

Of course this is all republicans fault for having these witch hunt hearings.

Do not be misled by the headline! This is a great read, says everything that needs to be said re: PIAPS´ convenient indisposition. Also eviscerates the lightbringer.

Brilliantly reasoned, to a conclusion everyone in their gut knows is the truth.

But she´ll only get away with it if the GOP lets her. And, sigh, it looks like they will.

Hillary is first and foremost a lawyer and knows very well the high cost of committing perjury before Congress.
She wants so badly to avoid accountability for this mess that she is throwing away her chance to be president by throwing the "weak and fragile woman" card.
This should embolden the house investigators to know that she is hiding something really big and the pursuit will be worth their efforts.

Wonder who else will take the fall for the incompetent higher ups? Rice, if she had any brains, should have figured out she was disposable when SHE was sent out to the tv programs and clinton remained in seclusion.
As for being disqualified for running for potus because of illness....clinton has done nothing to warrant being a senator OR a secretary of state...other than being married to bill and being placated by putting her in these positions. Illness will not disqualify her in a liberal´s mind. Only death will disqualify her. And she will probably live a long, unhappy life.

It really doesn´t matter if she testifies or not. As long as nearly 50% of our population keeps getting their free stuff, they don´t care one bit about Benghazigate.

I find it interesting that this woman has been involved in situations with two men that are considered Impeachable offenses. BJ barely escaped impeachment and removal from office for blatant perjury, while Zero will skate by without anybody even mentioning impeachment, despite his actions (and inactions) costing American lives.

And some people think she would be a presidential contender? Republicans are unfairly held to a higher standard, while Democrats just la-de-da along in political life and get the world´s hugest pass.

Face it, Republicans are weak. Benghazi should be the downfall of the Obama administration. No one will be held accountable for the deaths of these four Americans. Neither will Obama be held responsible for the state of our economy. Our leadership is weak and more than willing to go along to get along. Man up, Republicans! Hold this corrupt administration accountable for its deed. Get tough. Do not let Mrs. Clinton off the hook even if she is having a case of the vapors. And this woman wants to be President? Really??

It´s a bizarre world when being married to a president gives credentials to BEING president. Or Sec. State! The same idea is being floated with regard to Moochelle. She´s ´qualified´ to be president?

In whose world.

God be with us in these troubling times!

Let´s not underestimate the threat that stomach-flu- related concussions pose to our society. It´s just bad timing that Hillary can´t come to school today and give her book report. Maybe next week? Let´s hope the concussion hasn´t damaged the memory, though there´s always the possibility of that sad side effect.

It´s all a scam IMO. Her boss doesn´t want her to testify, so she won´t. No virus, no faint, no concussion. It´s a typical liberal fraud. If she´d had a concussion you KNOW she would have been hospitalized.

If Hillary is unable to testify, surely she is unable to run for President!

Questions will follow her the rest of her life "unless" she does the right thing and comes forward and is honest.

That would be a sight to see!

A consussion at her age is not a good thing. Heck, NFL´rs are force to sit out games but at least they get a check up and maybe a trip to the hospital. If she hit herself in the head, there is the danger of bleeding under the skull, so she should have gone for Xrays. Did she?

And finally, let´s say she really has a concussion. Then subpoena her back in Feb, April, June, Dec of 2013. This investigation shall never be closed until she testifies. And if she does not, we need to hang this albatross around her neck come 2016.

Scathing as this article is, it never even mentions the "Gun Running to Terrorists" angle that appears to be the underlying motive for the politically expensive and embarrassing and obvious cover-up.

This is one horrid, murderous high crime piled upon another.

Looks like all it took was 20 dead kindergartners to flush it all down the memory hole.

Never let a crisis get away before finding your profit angle.

"But she isn´t feeling well, and wants to stay home this week, so you should just forget the whole thing; goodness knows she´d like to forget it. (By the way, is this not the kind of fragility in the face of duty that ought to disqualify her as a presidential candidate?"

This is a very good article. A definite MUST read! It should be posted on every blog, site, billboard, bus, shared with family and friends. We need to send it to our Senators and Representatives.

Y´know it occurs to me that I don´t know any old drunks anymore. They all died- in their fifties. If she´s foolish enough at her age to risk an alcohol problem - she is too much of a fool to be SOS, let alone run for president. As a previous poster pointed out, she hasn´t been qualified for any gov´t position she has held - I understand that she just barely passed the bar & had to take it more than once. I´ve never seen brilliance in her, just intimidation tactics against anyone who doesn´t kiss her big butt, sing her praises & hand her what she wants - all by virtue of who she is married to. I think I´ll start using her" tummy ache/bumped my soft head" excuse when my lib relatives start in over the holidays.

Not surprising - wondering when something was going to show up so she couldn´t testify. One can´t hold this president to the same standards as a republican because then you are called a racist. This is so sad because he should be held to the same standards as any president. I think he´s the only one who points out the color of his skin. To most Americans it doesn´t matter the color of skin.

Hillary sickens me. She always has. The supposed feminist got where she was because of who she was married to. Period. She becomes Senator in NY because why? She´s Hillary? She´s a girl? Because New Yorkers are nuts? As a New Yorker I can say they are. Then with absolutely no experience is named Secretary of State by a clown with even less experience. What a woeful job she has done over these past 4 years. And now, she is inevitable for the presidency? She watched as her staff was slaughtered. She is now trying to save her sorry ample posterior on the graves of her staff. If a little flu virus will keep her from testifying in a few days, how can she ever perform as president? Although the standards for presidential performance have been seriously diminished. As president, she will need to be up to the task, flu and all of running the country. But, she was never qualified for any of the jobs she was given and now behaving as a "girly girl" is oh, too sick to appear in Congress.

Can you imagine if this was Condi Rice and she was going to run for president? The press would be all over her. The press sickens me as much as Hillary does. PULEEZE.

How come we don´t hear anything about Bill rushing to her side and giving her comfort? He surely is concerned about her health. One would think he would be interviewed about how she is doing and what the prognosis is for a complete recovery from the concussion. Why the silence from the MSM on Bill? hmm, hmm? Didn´t she stand by him in his darkest days?

I´ve never spared Shrillary any quarter, but I´m going to cut her some slack on this one. There is a nasty virus going round the DC area. I´ve got right now, my son had it over the weekend. If she has it too I know she has no desire to prep for a hearing, much less attend. But that doesn´t excuse completely bailing on the hearing. The right thing to do would be reschedule, but then expecting a lib to do the right thing is expecting too much.

If Hillary really cared about US, she would say that she would willingly testify to the best of her knowledge and be honest.

This is all we are asking for - honesty!

Is that too much to ask for?

Seems the liberal media is not concerned whether or not she testifies or even if it is important!

America suffers from those who are too politcally correct than be just plain honest and caring about this land we love.

Our forefathers would be totally ashamed of the politicians of today - not wanting to be responsible for their own actions, carng more for themselves than the country they are paid to defend and represent!

News to Hillary - God will ask and He will get an answer. Sadly, He might reply - Depart from me for I never knew you! That is the end for those who decide to evade the truth to save their mortal hides!

Funny how the corrupt MSM kept telling us how Hillary "fell on her sword" for pResident Obama when she said she would take "responsibility" for Benghazi. It seems she had a phony fall on her head instead and is now in constant hiding from the committee where she claimed she would give testimony on Benghazi. What a wortheless sack of potatoes this phony liar Hillary turned out to be. Disgusting.

Bilary´s life is an unending series of lies, big ones involving crimes, fraud, murder, theft, impeachment, betrayal of sovereignty, it goes on and on. Now she has to re-coverup one of the grand murder lies of the century with the guy she´s supposedly working for. She´s not lying for Willie or herself, she´s lying for a raging, vindictive, troubled person who can easily throw her under the bus. Her life is on the line. She´s seen too many guys go down in flames. The heat is on!

The Poverty Hoax
American Thinker, by John Dietrich    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 4/8/2014 7:54:23 AM     Post Reply
A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

The clumsiness and incoherence, if not madness, of this administration’s foreign policies are creating havoc around the world. No one wrapped up the story of the chaos better than Sultan Knish did this week: When Bush left office at the end of his second term, the region was mostly stable aside from Iran’s nuclear program. By the time Obama had finished his first term, it was in a state of endless war. [snip] Bush had sought to stabilize the Middle East by removing Saddam. Obama instead destabilized it by trying to remove every government that was in any way friendly to the

Calling a Spade a ´Garden Implement´

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Kudos to Don Lemon, the CNN journalist, for admitting what conservatives have maintained ever since Barack Obama became president with unquestioning media support and suppression of any conservatism as racist: (This is the totality of the text, video is enclosed.)

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
