The new year began not with a cannonball off the “fiscal cliff” but with an outbreak of conspiratorial cynicism. This time it’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose fall and concussion, followed by a blood clot between her brain and skull, has prompted an embarrassment of theories. The gist: That woman will do anything to avoid testifying about Benghazi. Several commentators on the right opined via Twitter and TV, those most deadly hosts for the parasites of rumor and innuendo, that Clinton was faking her concussion to duck out on her appearance
If PIAPS isn´t tough enough to play with the big boys, she needs to take her ball and go on home.
She is Secretary of State. She doesn´t need Kathleen Parker or anyone else to defend her. Either she is tough enough to do that for herself, or she isn´t tough enough to be in that position -- or, God forbid -- ever as president.
I don´t know if this is real or a stunt to get out of testifying, but, in either case, by Kathleen Parker acting like PIAPS needs defending, she is basically admitting that PIAPS isn´t strong or tough enough to do the job.
What if she had been on the flight to Iran which crash landed and suffered a concussion from the rough landing? It would have been divine justice or karma if she died after attempting to broker a deal to terrorists, after allowing terrorists to kill 4 Americans working under her despite pleas for help. May not be compassionate but I think Hillary really has blood on her hands. She has compounded the wrong by letting those 4 get reshuffled while pretending to mete punishment to these supposedly scapegoated functionaries.
The Secret Service recorded this conversation: Hillary: "What would you do if I died? Would you get married again? BILL: "Definitely not!" HILLARY: "Why not? Don´t you like being married?" BILL: "Of course I do." HILLARY: "Then why wouldn´t you remarry?" BILL: "Okay, okay, I´d get married again." HILLARY: "You would?" (with a hurt look) BILL: (makes audible groan) HILLARY: "Would you live in our house?" BILL: "Sure, it´s a great house." HILLARY: "Would you sleep with her in our bed?" BILL: "Where else would we sleep?" HILLARY: "Would you take her golfing with you? BILL: "Yes, those are always good times." HILLARY: "Would you let her use my clubs? BILL: "No, she´s left-handed." HILLARY: -- silence -- BILL: "Damn."
With her embittered ´nowadays everyone´s a pundit´ declaration, short, fat, stumpy Parker is clearly concerned about others stepping on her turf. She thinks only she should be ´entitled´ to be a pundit, and others must be silenced.
Wake up, dumpy blonde Parker: It´s the Internet Age and the msm is facing competition because of its dereliction of duty.
She IS dumpy - I saw a picture of her in a polka dot outfit back when she was sucking up to Obama as one of his hand-prized picked conservative journalists in the early days of his presidency. Obama was taking her around and working mightily to impress her, which he obviously did. She was short, fat, dumpy and had the look of a squishy chew toy. Don´t believe her photoshopped photo in the column. She´s squishy fat and needs to watch her carb count.
If I was the head of a gov´t dept. that was coming under withering fire and I did nothing wrong,I would crawl over hot coals to testify and clear my name.Hot coals can´t get Clinton out of her hospital bed.
Parker became an overnight sensation with the left when she trashed Palin,she basked in the glory of helping to bring her down.Now she´s going back to the same crowd of morons who idolized her for doing that. She was totally dreadful on the short lived show with Spitzer,thinking she was cute with the librarian look.
I guess Parker has no intellectual curiosity about this whole Benghazi situation from start to finish. How can the state dept.take the whole blame with it´s head snake ducking all the liability about it?
How does the Hildebeast like it when the shoe´s on the other foot. I say just deserts. She´s nothing more than an incompetent liar whose sole role as SoS was to make history on the most number of countries visited.

It may have been a blow to the head in an attempt to shut Hillary up so she couldn´t crawl from under the bus she is going under to save the won. It is an insult to real ladies to call the tramps voting parts ´lady parts´.
Have any of the lap doggies covering Hillary explained why, when she lives and passed out in D.C. she´s shipped to a NY hospital. Could it be that the Clinton´s control the press offices at Columbia Pres. hopital better than in D.C. There is something weird about this whole thing.
Parker is nothing more than someone who sits at home reading the paper and news blogs to then write her opinion pieces. She is no more informed than the people who post on this site--probably much less so in many cases.
What Parker fails to point out in her smarmy holier-than-thou little article is that both the Clintons have a long history of being liars and when you are a known liar it comes back to bite you even if you happen to be telling the truth. There is still no real proof of any of this other than the word of her toadies at the State Department who say what they are told to say.
It´s always the same story; nasty insults thrown at conservatives daily with not a peep from those like Parker; a little heat thrown at Democrats met with shock. Conservatives are accused of the most dastardly acts from the floor of both houses and the Whitehouse and its just politics. Give the same to the Democrats and it is just intolerable. It keeps the onus on Republicans to stay on the defensive as the party that wants to throw grandma out on the street and starve children. Parker´s piece is just her contribution to keep that label going so she will be invited to the right cocktail parties.
That does it. Of course this blood clot will ´dramatically´ affect Hillary´s memory and she will not remember anything prior to the election in November. I was wondering how she (and Obama) were going to get out of this one. They´re so slick - so clever - so sleazy and inventive.
Good points #43 on the medical commute to New York. The DC commies have a rolodex for different occasions: They dial up Wesley Clark when they need a liberal minded general´s opinion; dial up New York Columbia Pres hospital when they need medical cover; dial up Elijah Cummings when they need some racial spin to guilt the opposition into caving to their point of view; dial up Keith Ellison when a muslim American perspective is needed for their pro-Sharia propaganda, etc.
People who like the sauce, fall a lot- breaking bones, hitting heads, etc. This is one´s first thought when it comes to Hillary. The second is avoidance of unpleasantness, The Benghazi inquisition looms, big time damage to reputation prevails. The last possibilities are the subdural hematoma, brain tumor, aneurysm. We have our pick. If it is one of the latter, forgive me for thinking the former.
Yes, any character problems that Hillary has, she created herself. She hid important files that had information about her fraudulent Whitewater case, and she then finds them months later. She lied under oath; she protected her lying husband. She did it all to herself.
I still suspect complications from facelift. It´s a serious surgery with lots of possible complications a few days later. Even the "plane crash" story would make a good coverup to explain bruises. Time will tell.
Like I care. After all the c--- the Clinton´s pulled re: women he bedded or raped or seduced, and all the Arkansas land deals and all the rest...... PLUS I am so sick of hearing about what a great secretary of state she has been, as the Middle East falls in flames, the Pakistani Dr. who helped find Bin Laden gets sent up for 30 years and Netanyahu gets savaged........WHAT great secretary of state?
Yeah,the life lift goes to the musles that have a nexus behind the ear,andthere surgon yses achook to snag em and pull them back and tie them off.It does occur behind the ear. Maybe she had a fight with someone and she got brained with a lamp ashtray or an award.
Remember when Hillary said: We shall have to take things away from you for the common good? Well Obama is doing that so that when Hillary gets elected she won´t have to. George Soros controls both. If accomplishment of your goals means success-then Obama is the most successful President in History.
my favoritem part is about those people in the hinterland and the "news" they consume. scare quotes around news so even the thickest reader will get the point. oh kathleen we know you are among our intellectual and moral superiors
Mrs Clinton hade a lot of year end financial business to clean up before the democrat tax increase went into effect. She learned from her past experience in 1990 when she had to shelter her ill gotten gains before Slick Willie´s retroactive tax took effect.
Parker makes a valid point about the bipartisan vitriolic nature of our present political system. This thread validates that. " The rush to character assassination seems to be our only bipartisan imperative and is a blight on our political system. In this brooding age of superstition and portent, every misspoken word is a lie, every human error a hanging offense." I believed in the beginning, like many , that there was something funky about her stomach virus excuse. The medical information released by the State Dept has been vague and their refusal to give more detailed information, including the exact date on which she fell , has fueled doubt. However, her doctors did issue a statement in early December , barely reported , that she was dehydrated and fell. How she was allowed to get to this state of severe dehydration and why she was left alone to fall , is still a mystery. The physicians are not lying about the clot and her anticoagulant treatment, but, I believe they are couching their statements and only releasing partial information.
Relax. The pubs have already said that confirmation hearings associated with Lurch´s nomination as secretary of state will not move forward until after Hillary testifies regardless if she testifies as SoS or as an unemployed civilian.
Since Hillary´s drunken stupor and fall from drinking too much fine beer and eating too many corn chips in Columbian bars, Moochelle can now dream of running for President in 2016. I am sure that Moochelle will get 96% of the feminists and 100% of the dumb lesbian vote.
Kathleen is from my neck of the woods and we use to be proud of her. Then she was the first "conservative" to eviserate Palin and kept at it. So, I realized what an empty person she was. Believe she got an award for bringing down Palin, just like Katie Couric got an award for doing the same thing. These two women are below all respect.
SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. -- The victim of a vicious knockout attack in New Jersey is speaking out for the first time. He was cold-cocked, and hit not just with a fist, but with a glove with hard plastic knuckles. Two of the four attackers are still on the run. "All of a sudden, I was trying to watch my back and these two came around front and punches my face," the victim said. The 36-year-old restaurant worker does not want his name or face on television, and who could blame him? He still has headaches from a concussion and six
Sears stock plummeted Wednesday as news came out that Edward Lampert, its stubborn billionaire chairman and CEO, had to surrender majority control of the 120-year-old big box retailer when investors in Lampert’s hedge fund pulled money out. With no end in sight for Lampert’s quixotic turnaround efforts, it’s time to question whether there’s any way to save Sears as long as he remains in charge. (Snip) Lampert began at Sears with the ill-fated $12 billion merger with Kmart in 2005. Sales have declined for 27 straight quarters and the company’s stock is down over 70% from its high in 2007.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has no system in place to prevent fraud when individuals apply for tax credits under Obamacare, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). The IG said in an audit released Tuesday that the IRS has no plan to manage, monitor, or mitigate fraud risk when processing premium tax credits available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). “The ACA Program has not yet completed a fraud mitigation strategy,” the audit found. “It is important for the IRS to thoroughly consider fraud threats and risks that could impact new ACA systems.” Politico reports: The
Around 100,000 Americans successfully signed up for health insurance in November through the troubled federal online marketplace, HealthCare.gov, a person familiar with the preliminary data confirmed to ABC News. The figure reflects a surge in enrollment as software and hardware fixes to the site were made over the course of the month. In October, only 26,000 people could successfully enroll in Obamacare plans, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. "We´ve been working 24/7 to make improvements, and more consumers are successfully shopping online and enrolling in a health plan each week," Health and Human Services Secretary
NEW HAVEN >> The jail cell death last weekend of Yale University professor Samuel See, known as a brilliant writer and rising star in academia, has shaken up the tight-knit college community. Now adding to the mystery of his unexpected death are apparent connections between the online profiles of See and several escort service websites that include a cache of sexually explicit photos. At least four websites advertising male escort services included a phone number connected to See. The website Ryan Cochran Escort Services includes the same phone number listed on an order of protection filed against See in September.
For many Ann Arborites, Thanksgiving is a day devoted to giving thanks, spending time with family, eating turkey and watching the Detroit Lions. This year, retail giants want that to change. (Snip) The early openings change the game for retail giants looking to boost profits through aggressive holiday sales. It also means millions of retail employees in the U.S. are working on the holiday, and it poses the question to consumers: Is a bargain on a 70-inch television or an Apple iPad worth ditching Thanksgiving dinner? “You couldn’t pay me to stand in a line in the cold on Thanksgiving
Macy´s Inc and a slew of other U.S. retailers are opening on Thanksgiving for the first time ever in a bare-knuckled brawl for a bigger slice of overall holiday sales. But it might not be so easy to lure most Americans from their turkey and football - particularly if the weather is foul. Department store rivals Kohl´s Corp and J.C. Penney Co Inc led a string of Thanksgiving opening announcements after Macy´s said it would open its U.S. stores on the popular holiday, ending a 155-year tradition. Sales trends, survey results and an online "Save Thanksgiving" backlash suggest that shoppers
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
