The pundits making a mockery of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s head injuries ought to be ashamed of themselves. These commentators contend Clinton is offering excuses to avoid tough questions over the deadly September attack on a U.S. consulate office in Libya. (Snip) On Dec. 17, Fox News contributor John Bolton accused Clinton of feigning "diplomatic illness." One day later, the New York Post published a headline calling her condition a "head fake."On the air, Charles Krauthammer and Sean Hannity have joked about Clinton´s "acute Benghazi allergy." Outgoing Congressman Allen West, R-Florida,
Comments: And, I thought there was "nothing" that could possibly make me feel worst today.../S
These are Hillary´s self-righteous friends writing screeds to defend her. We still haven´t seen any doctors telling us what´s going on. We have only her and her handlers´ statements. We still know nothing.
Uh, Mr. Tan . . . the journolist pundits have lost their shame long ago. It happened some time between their investigative journalism on Bill Cinton & said same done of Gov. Palin. You are wa-a-a-a-a-a-a-ay too late.
Listne up, Thanh Tan: Kathleen Parker says ´everyone´s a pundit´ so that means you have no business being a pundit and issuing forth your opinions, only Kathleen does. Time for you to shut up, because Fatty Parker says so.
Shame on the lapdog media for forgiving the unforgiveable and ignoring the deaths of brave americans while this shrew ran for cover. Than, to top off the outrage, to call this absolute failure (see Egypt, Libya, Syria, Russia, China, etc., etc.,) the "most accomplished Secretary of State ever" is dispicable. Hillary is one of the worst of a bad Obama lot and no amount of aspirin will change that.
The entire media establishment and every liberal in the country should be ashamed of themselves for the horribly cruel remarks they have made about every prominent Republican and their families in the last 20 years. The hypocrisy of these people is astounding. So Thanh, why don´t you be the first to admit that instead of lecturing the rest of us. I don´t personally care what happens to Hillary Clinton. Her criminal stupidity in Benghazi took 4 people´s lives.
Ignoramouses masquerading as wise pundits and reporters like this woman have helped get our nation to the pathetic shape it is in. Why doesn´t she question why Hillary´s blood clot wasn´t diagnosed right away? Hillary is the Secretary of State and had she taken a fall sufficient to cause a concussion one would think that protocol would be such that she would immediately have a CAT scan, at the very least. A case of the stomach flu leading to cerebral thrombosis, meaning that her brain´s in a blender and has turned to jello...again...just in time for the Benghazi hearings, is a little rich. Perhaps I should be ashamed to doubt this known liar and her flying monkeys, but I´m not.
-Before moving to Austin, Tan worked at Idaho Public Television and was a general assignment reporter for the ABC affiliate in Portland, Ore. Her work has appeared on PBS NewsHour, This American Life and in the New York Times. Check out her appearance on the Rachel Maddow show this month.-
I would like contact information for anyone who believes everything that we´ve been told about Hillary in the past five days ´cause I have a nice ocean-front lot in Arizona for which I´m seeking a buyer.
When someone lies to you, you have trouble believing them next time, when some like Bill and Hill have lied hundreds of times often under oath you end up NEVER believing a word out of their mouths. As to the Famous Hillary quote "I really don´t Recall"anyone can make $100k in a day with cattle futures call it beginners luck. The whole Idea is to scare Republicans on the committee so they won´t ask the tough questions. Clinton Defense Plan #1, your only picking on her cause she´s a frail little women..
This guy has drunk deeply of the Clinton Kool-Aid. Can´t he see the many holes in the Clinton narrative? What excuse could there be except that she is trying desperately to avoid being put under oath in front of a Congressional committee?
Sorry we ever treated your side, Thant, with respect and fairness. What is good for the goose is equally good for the gander. Not a peep when your "pundit", Andrew Sullivan was going after Trig Palin so don´t start appealing to our sense of shame. Your side lost the right so civility long time ago.
Possibly when she was "diagnosed" with a concussion ( by someone ? ) instead of going to the hospital and getting the proper tests and treatment at THAT time, if necessary, we would think more kindly of her situation. Whether we believe her, trust her, and/or support her, no one wants to see another person in a dire medical condition. We who do not support her simply believe she has been avoiding her testimony before Congress. and THAT´s a fact. We do not wish her to be ill or injured.
She´s NOT ill or injured. Tan is a succubus and believes anything said by their gods/goddesses.
She, Tan and their ilk have lied so manny times, a sane person cannot believe any spoken word or seen action. You have to always ask, what´s behind the curtain? What´s going on that´s being kept from me?
Just because H gets a doctor to do a couple of tests and say something that she scripted for him/her, doesn´t make it true.
Any sane person looks at a plethora of information / sources before making a decision. The first question is: What was the timeline? minute by minute - sick, fell, Dr., tests. Until she does a better job of covering her tracks, the timeline doesn´t add up to coincide with her purported injuries / released statements.
She doesn´t have the same medical care we have. She doesn´t need to see her primary physician to get a referral to a specialist.
Montevideo - Uruguay´s Senate is expected to pass a law on Tuesday making the small South American nation the world´s first to allow its citizens to grow, buy and smoke marijuana. The pioneering government-sponsored bill establishes state regulation of the cultivation, distribution and consumption of marijuana and is aimed at wresting the business from criminals. Cannabis consumers would be allowed to buy a maximum of 40 grams (1.4 ounces) each month from state-regulated pharmacies as long as they are over the age of 18 and registered on a government database that will monitor their monthly purchases.
The political temperature in the Arctic rose on Tuesday when Vladimir Putin vowed to step up Russia´s military presence in the region in response to a claim by Canada to the north pole. In typically trenchant style, Putin told his defence chiefs to concentrate on building up infrastructure and military units in the Arctic. He said the region was again key to Russia´s national and strategic interests, following a retreat in the post-Soviet period. His comments were a direct and rapid riposte to Canada, a rival Arctic power. John Baird, said his government had asked scientists to work on a submission to the UN arguing
The phone call came from a charming woman with a bright, engaging voice to the cell phone of a TIME Washington Bureau Chief Michael Scherer. She wanted to offer a deal on health insurance, but something was fishy. When Scherer asked point blank if she was a real person, or a computer-operated robot voice, she replied enthusiastically that she was real, with a charming laugh. But then she failed several other tests. When asked “What vegetable is found in tomato soup?” she said she did not understand the question. When asked multiple times what day of the week it was yesterday, she complained repeatedly of a bad connection.
A porn performer who tested positive for HIV in Los Angeles is asking for privacy as the industry tries to determine the scope of the problem. "The performer deserves privacy and dignity at this difficult time, and we ask that our colleagues and the media respect the performer’s wishes for privacy unless he or she wishes to speak," the Free Speech Coalition, a porn industry trade group, said in a statement. The Free Speech Coalition said it was working to identify anyone who had sex with the infected performer. “We take the health of our performers very seriously and felt
In China on Thursday, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. spoke plainly about the role of a free press in a democratic society. “Innovation thrives where people breathe freely, speak freely, are able to challenge orthodoxy, where newspapers can report the truth without fear of consequences,” he said in an address to American businesspeople living and working there. He was speaking against the backdrop of China’s restrictive policies on reporting by foreign news organizations; the Chinese government has so far declined to renew the visas of nearly two dozen reporters from The New York Times and Bloomberg News as a consequence
Jerusalem - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has decided not to attend a memorial service for Nelson Mandela this week because it is too expensive to travel to South Africa, Israeli media reported on Sunday. Netanyahu had notified the South African authorities that he would fly in but cancelled his plans at the last minute due to the costs involved -- around 7.0 million shekels ($2 million) for his transport and security alone, pubic radio and the Haaretz daily reported. "The decision was made in light of the high transportation costs resulting from the short notice of the trip and the security required for the prime minister
New Orleans - Things traditionally get started a little late down here, an inclination that runs from mealtimes to political races. But with nearly a year to go before the 2014 election, it is already open season on Senator Mary L. Landrieu, Democrat of Louisiana. (Snip) As Democrats look across the rest of the South, the outlook does not get much better. Ms. Landrieu, along with Senators Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Kay Hagan of North Carolina, is pretty much all that is left of Southern Democrats in the Senate. All three are up for re-election next year. And the outcome of their races could determine whether the Southern Democrat,
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
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
