Republicans expect Clinton’s
clarity on Benghazi

Washington Times, by Shaun Waterman and Guy Taylor

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/21/2013 10:17:05 PM

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton likely will face tough questions about the deadly Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya — including how the U.S. ambassador went missing for several hours during the assault — when she meets Wednesday with the House and Senate foreign affairs committees. The appearance, likely to be her last before Congress, will cap her time as secretary of state by revisiting one of the most bitterly contested and controversial episodes of her tenure

Her Fraudulency will likely succumb to the vapors, and be excused until 2014, sometime.

"Republicans expect Clinton’s clarity on Benghazi"

this is a joke, right?

have we already forgotten this article?

"Essay: Blizzard of Lies
By WILLIAM SAFIRE
Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady -- a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation -- is a congenital liar."

clarity?
not from Hillary.

This is going to be America´s last shot at this corrupt and incompetent pig until the ´16 campaign. She has a four decade history of scandal for which she has NEVER had to answer. This was a cover- up of the first order and if the Repubs. Want to see this leftist slug and her sex pervert criminal husband follow the destructive ba$tard now in office, all they have to do is play kissy face with Madam.
If she is not taken out now she gets a free ride to 2016.

Poster 2, Heart Surgeon, thank you for posting the congenital liar piece. While an apt description, it didn´t stop Hillary as senator, an almost presidential candidate or as SoS. This is because she is a progressive Dem, and absolutely nothing stops a progressive Dem other than another progressive Dem.

However, if HRC is congenital, then her mate must be a genital liar. "I did not have sex with that woman."

This is a waste of taxpayer´s money if there are no indictments, firings or resignations coming out of this. If the Republicans are clever and ruthless enough this could be an opportunity to take her out as far as any 2016 aspirations she may possess.

Hillary will do a pathetic tap dance for the committee and will exit the old stage left into oblivion.
She will not be the 2016 nominee unless she can find an expert black face artist and become a male figure while losing 25 years off her resume´.
If she doesn´t come clean it will make my sister weep because she expects saint Hillary to blow the whistle this week and allow us to wave Obe bye bye.

The smartest woman in the world will appear in a stainless blue dress, preach in a southern drawl about the vast rightwing conspiracy, then answer every question with "I don´t recall" while guzzling her favorite beer. Being a Clinton, the last thing to expect from her is the truth.

There is a certain entertainment value to watching these people lie and obfuscate.I´m watching for her to deny she ever saw a request from Stevens for more security.

She already halfway blamed Stevens a while back by saying he knew the risk he was taking going in there.

This was an out and out assassination of Stevens by his own government for a reason we don´t know and that will never come out in this inquiry.

A corrupt citizenry demands corrupt leaders. It´s time to accept that we have a corrupt citizenry that seems to ignore obvious corruption in the Clinton´s and Obama.

We are now led by the corrupt and the watchdog is the corrupted media.

It´s over folks. Better batten down the hatches. It´s going to be everyone for themselves.

Like most commenters before me, the headline reads like a sick joke.

The notion that Republicans expect anything other than what everyone else expects, which is a pant-load of time-killing nonresponsive answers, can´t recalling, indignant posturing, and outright lying is laughable. Also laughable is the fantasy that Republicans will do anything other than furiously raise their eyebrows, angrily straighten their papers, or abruptly turn to staff and dispatch them on urgent missions.

This thing could get the popcorn-worthy Iran-Contra treatment, but I would bet the farm that the Republicans flinch before Herself does. Not even close. They will go in thinking they have to be tough, but not too tough on a "respected" SoS, and a woman with high approvals and aspirations. She will go in hacked off that she even has to deal with these vermin. She wins, hands down.

The stress of the inquisition will do her in. If the GOP questions are too tough, she´ll develop a latent migraine, maybe faint from residual concussion effects, or cry.

She will be so sad these 4 Americans lost their lives, she will have been busy with solving the rest of the world´s problems (read: eating their food, drinking their beer, and dancing their dances), and there will be a conspiracy in place to make her look bad.

I could write this stuff.

The progressives will declare that the Republicans are escalating the war on women when they ask Mrs. Clinton anything that makes her uncomfortable. I would like to see a woman ask the hard questions and brook no evasive answers on the SOS´s part. However, the left will cry foul if any question pushes too hard. Mrs. Clinton wanted the job, hold her accountable for her decisions. Men died because of her incompetence. Their families deserve answers.

They don´t refer to the State dept. as Foggy Bottom for nothing you know. Barack Obama has a better chance of becoming a fiscal conservative than we have in getting the open and honest truth from a Clinton. Unless she can do it in such a way that it knocks Obama off his perch without hurting her. I suspect that is why it has taken so long for her testimony.

She will forcefully accept responsibility, while admitting no fault of her own. She won´t show any signs of weakness as she has her ambitions to think about here and the problem we have is that we have a group up there that will let it go with little truth to come out. They have admitted they have met with her behind closed doors, they have all the intelligence they are gonna get, so this is just for show for us poor saps who thought maybe there would be justice for those poor 4 victims.

The question is does she think she´s stylin´ with those new glasses or is she actually attempting to look like Kim Jong Il?

At least Tammy Wynette took her to the woodshed over the (not) "standing by your man" comment that time. That´s about all we´ll get. No strings she could pull to stop that tongue lashing.

She must sleep better at night if those Benghazi bodies really were cremated. CYA? Done. In regards to the drones she can honestly say, "no muslims were harmed in the making of this video". George Soros would approve.

This is a first, lying for Obie. Most of her previous, long list of lies and unsolved deaths were all done to protect her Slick Willie. Now she´s being asked to lie for the raging, vindictive, commie style person not her husband. The world knows she can only lie, or die. The good news, she has all of mainstream media backing up her every lie. Diane Sawyer, Brian Williams, Steve Pelley, the whole army of limousine news actors will back up her every evasive, Slick Hilary words. Whatever we see will have been rehearsed, all of it "just for show", another socialist nail in the coffin of America.
There will not be one questioner to actually pursue the truth. RINO Boehner crooks are also afraid for their lives and the safety of their families. It isn´t just Hilary; they all fear for their lives.

i suspect the phrase she will use is not "I don´t recall", but a more lawyerly and nuanced "I have no independent recollection".

This avoids having her memory called into question, while saving her from uttering any statements that could be construed as perjury. She won´t have to comment further on any damning emails or on the record statements she has made before...it lets her skate...she does not contradict, deny, clarify nor add to the paper trail that exists...she merely states she has "no independent recollection".

What is the best, or reliable, concise reference to the Hillary “I don’t remember” testimonies? I can’t find a concise one on Google or Wikipedia. Perhaps it has been thinned with time. One of my correspondents says that she never uttered those words, or anything like them, not one time, ever.

Earlier this month, another Republican senator, Bob Corker of Tennessee, who is the new ranking member of the Foreign Relations Committee in the Democrat-controlled Senate, suggested that Mrs. Clinton is eager to try to address unanswered questions.
“I actually sense — especially in talking to her chief [of staff] just in the last few days — that she’s anxious to want to come up and testify on Benghazi,” he told MSNBC.


The State Dept. says she will be prepared to answer any questions. (With the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God???)

I´d like for you to be wrong, #7, but it would be a surprise if you are wrong.

The Clintons stall until an election passes then stall some more, and then make vaporous statements about wanting to work for the American people.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:38:34 AM     Post Reply
Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness
issues hoping to avoid a repeat

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
