Do you hear that faint sound? It´s the grumbling of conservative pundits who are now churning out a theory that Hillary Clinton is lying about her concussion to avoid having to testify about Benghazi. Clinton had a concussion recently, her team said Saturday. And The Daily Caller´s Jim Treacher isn´t sending the Secretary of State a get-well card until she proves she was really hurt. He writes: If she has a concussion, let’s see the medical report. Let’s see some proof that she’s not just stonewalling. If it’s true, then we can all wish her a speedy recovery.
FTA: Update 4:21 p.m. Clinton´s team is responding to the attacks that the Secretary of State faked her concussion to get out of the hearing. "She´s been on the phone and in e-mail contact with senior staff. She´s been working on other issues - Syria, the DPRK [North Korea] today. These are people that don´t know what they are talking about," spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters.
Just about everyone believes hillary is faking it. She couldn´t appear on tv a few days after the libya mess, because she was too upset over the death of the ambassador. She then took off for peru, to attend a women´s summit of some kind, and then she went to Australia for winetasting. And nnow she is back in washington, and bumps her head, self diagnoses a concussion, and can´t testify. Next she will be out of office and will take the 5th.
Nobody but those crazy conservatives could ever even DREAM of the Clintons´ not telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
Of COURSE she is faking it. Everybody knows that. The liberal media know it. Hillary and her handlers and the Obama administration must really think Americans are stupid.
It looks like they could be right, considering who has been in the Oval Office almost 4 years, and whose ticket has just been stamped valid by vox populi for another 4 years. People foolish enough to put a character like Obama in the White House and to keep him there after they have had a chance to see him in action are gullible enough to believe anything. And even if they don´t believe it - for example our famous "investigative media" and "journalistic watchdogs" and "Fourth Estate"- they will pretend to do so for partisan political purposes.
You go, girl. Hope your head doesn´t hurt too back. Guess there will be some lasting effects, though. There will probably be some things you will just never be able to remember, no matter how hard you try.
With the proper doctoring, she could end up like one or more of those embroiled in the shenanigans of the Iran Contra....or just later, like Vince Foster.... Bill would be crushed were she gone, but would ,I am sure get over it,...these are nefarious, murderous folk...remember Hitlery is froma Chicago family(pack? ) of lawyers..
""She´s been on the phone and in e-mail contact with senior staff. She´s been working on other issues - Syria, the DPRK [North Korea] today........."
If she can do those things with a concussion why can´t she testify and tell the story? I´m sure that she will be afforded the utmost respect and courtesy from the committee, heck I bet they even let her bring a doctor or nurse with her to stand by just in case. So if she can do her job she can testify.
I´ve had a concussion ( head on collision with my horse ). One doesn´t stop you from doing anything. You just have a horrendous headache and feel awful for a couple of days. Lame excuse and we are 100% correct not to believe it.
Well, duh, anyone with half a brain knows she´s faking it. After all she can´t appear before them give us the "I don´t recall" bit again. Hillary is a joke and reached her level of incompetence a long, long time ago. You can see why she stayed with Bill and put up with being humiliated all the time. She never would have made it on her own.
If she did a header full on, with the full weight of her body, shed´s have more than a concussion; she´d have a skull fracture. I think the Clinton track record for truthfulness tells us we´re being shat upon once again.
All that free Gubba Mint health care and no doctor´s visit for the "concussion?" The Hag is a liar. She needs to be doing hard time for all her crimes . Payback is gonna be a beeyatch someday, Hilly. You´ve put a looooooot of bad juju out there in your decades-long crime spree. Oops, I mean, career.
I haven´t seen the doctors name published yet, but if I was him/her I would make sure I had something to protect me from committing suicide like Vince Foster. Especially if she is thinking of running for Pres.
BRYAN, Texas- Holiday cheer in Texas has become even sweeter thanks to a giant gingerbread house that has broken a world record for confectionary construction. Coming in at 35.8 million calories and covering an area of 2520 square feet, or nearly the size of a tennis court, the 21-foot high gingerbread house in Bryan, Texas, 90 miles northwest of Houston, has been declared the biggest ever by Guinness World Records. The house, with an edible exterior mounted over a wooden frame, was built by the Traditions Club near Texas A&M University to help raise money for a trauma center at the regional
The White House is scoffing at a new study which shows there’s no public record that President Barack Obama ever met with the top official responsible for developing the Obamacare network. But White House spokesman Jay Carney declined today to cite one example where Obama met with Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of the Health and Human Services department. Instead, Carney claimed that “she’s here a lot and meets with the president with regular — with regularity.” “It’s safe to say that Kathleen Sebelius has been one of the more frequent visitors to and attendance of meetings with the president,” Carney said,
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
During a segment of The View Thursday morning, host Barbara Walters expressed her concerns over politicians swearing on a Bible upon taking office, noting the importance of “the separation of church and state” as an American value. The comments came up as the View crew discussed Sen. Mark Pryor‘s (D-AR) new political ad apologizing for his Obamacare support as well as insisting that the Bible should be a guiding presence in politics. After playing the ad, actress Jane Seymour told her hosts that “I think it’s really unfortunate when you have to bring religion into politics. I think religion is
Democrats have justifiably rejoiced in the divisions within the Republican Party which hamper its ability to speak with one voice and act with unity of purpose. The tea party faction within the GOP, once an unalloyed good that propelled the party to electoral victory in 2010, has been more of a headache than a boon ever since. The conservative faction of the Grand Old Party is often credited with robbing the party of electoral victories, torpedoing bipartisan legislative deals, and elevating gaffe-prone voices that force the GOP’s moderates to adopt a perpetual defensive crouch. The temptation for Democrats to partake
NEW YORK- The Fender Stratocaster that Bob Dylan plugged in when he famously went electric at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival sold Friday for nearly $1 million - the highest price ever paid for a guitar at auction. A buyer identified only as a private individual agreed to pay $965,000, including the auction house´s fees, for the sunburst-finish guitar, Christie´s said. Dylan´s legendary performance at the festival in Rhode Island 48 years ago marked his rupture with the folk movement´s old guard and solidified his shift away from acoustic music, like "Blowin´ in the Wind," toward amplified rock, such as "Like a Rolling Stone."
In late October, Texas Gov. Rick Perry went to Israel, not a surprising trip for a potential presidential candidate whose pro-Zionist views are well known. However, less widely known is his role in a breakthrough of sorts in academia and U.S.-Israeli relations. The Jerusalem Post reported: Texas A&M University will open a branch in Nazareth by October 2015 . . . The new institution, to be called the Peace Campus, will promote coexistence for the sake of education with a student population combining Arab, Jewish and foreign students. The faculty will be drawn from Arab, Jewish and international scholars. .
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter.
