Questions for Clinton in
the Benghazi hot seat

CNN, by Ashley Fantz & Jim Dougherty

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/23/2013 5:19:15 AM

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will finally take questions from members of Congress on Wednesday about the deadly terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. Lawmakers have long wanted Clinton´s full accounting of the September 11 assault that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. They also want to ask her about diplomatic security, which the State Department has since re-examined at posts located in overseas hot spots. Agency officials have acknowledged shortcomings and promised changes. Some of the toughest questions before the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee are expected to focus

Poor little Barack Obama! Sharyl Attkisson of CBS keeps asking Wise King Barky uncomfortable questions about Benghazi, and ol´ Wise King Barky is too scared to answer! Wise King Barky even sent his spokespeople out to tell Attkisson that he won´t be answering her questions, ever!

Because that´s how brave, brave Wise King Barky rolls!

Want to make Barack wet his pants?

Ask him to tell the TRUTH.

As with ALL Democrats, the TRUTH is their greatest enemy.

1. The foxy minx will obfuscate or lie.
2. The MSM will help cover-up the foxy minx´s cover-up.
3. Republicans will throw up their hands and leave it at that.

That´s about all we can be sure about.

Very generous of CNN to include all the ´answers´ to these questions.

Just evil Republicans thwarting the honest and heroic efforts of this transformational administration.

I don´t usually krank up the margarita machine before noon but will make an exception today.
We have so little to celebrate.
We must not miss this op.

Transcript: Benghazi Hearing, House Foreign Affairs Committee:

CHAIRMAN ED ROYCE (R-CA): Welcome, Secretary Clinton. Where were you when news broke that our consulate in Benghazi was under attack?
CLINTON: Whaaaa?
CLINTON AIDE: The Secretary just returned from Mali, sir. Her hearing’s been damaged by an RPG round fired at her Humvee. [repeats question to Clinton]
CLINTON: Fatigued after an overseas trip, I suffered a fugue episode just as I arrived in the Situation Room that night, Mr. Chairman.
ROYCE: Who gave the order to ´´Stand Down´´?
CLINTON: I’m told I was unsteady on my feet and the president asked me to ´´Sit down.´´
ROYCE: Do you and the administration take responsibility for lax security at the Benghazi compound?
CLINTON: Mr. Chairman, I. . . . [sways, then falls forward, smashing her forehead on the table. Her personal physician attends her.]
DOCTOR: A fainting spell, Mr. Chairman. Slight concussion, perhaps. She insists on continuing.
CLINTON: [appearing dazed] You were asking about Ben Gazarra’s problem with Social Security Administration?
ROYCE: Let’s move on. Did a YouTube video provoke the attack?
CLINTON: No. It was the result of overmedication.
ROYCE: Why did Susan Rice cover for you on the Sunday talk shows?
CLINTON: Rice loses moisture if it isn’t covered while it simmers, Mr. Chairman.
ROYCE: Madame Secretary, I ask again: who is ultimately responsible for the Benghazi debacle?
CLINTON: That was a political station, not a church, sir. There was no tabernacle there. Anyway, I take full responsibility for whatever it is that happened I don’t remember. Now, excuse me or I’ll feint [sic] again.
ROYCE: But, but . . . where was the president when. . . ?
CLINTON: Whaaaa?

I believe Secretary Clinton should be grilled until medium well done. Make sure the coals are good and hot. To avoid food poisoning, she should be probed inside to make sure she gets to the correct temperature.

She deserves the "willing suspension of disbelief" treatment she gave General Petreas. Of course there is no chance the GOP won´t tee up softballs for her. By the way, piaps plagerized that line she sniped at the General.

What she has to say will not matter. Just read the comments at the end of the article. She will redo her facelift , get a new hairstyle, and be elected President by the same idiots that voted for Obama.

I have already read that she is not going to answer all of their questions. It is a matter of "national security" don´tcha know. She is a consumate liar and will wiggle her way out of this. She has had three months to prepare. I hope the Republicans hit her hard and fast and do not give her time to think but they won´t. The MSM will call them meanies no matter what.

There were four supposed firings including the obese Charlene Lamb, who decided after consulting with others, not to grant sullivan´s request for more security, opting instead to train locals for security, along with kennedy, whatever he was, other than the person who whispered answers to Charlene, plus two others.
Were they actually fired?? Or not??

Be assured of two things:

1. The Republicans WILL ask the tough questions.

and

2. Madame VRWC will appear to answer but will be on auto-obfuscation pilot.

Oh, one more:
3. The Republicans will be ´´out of time´´ to follow-up.

Uh oh, one more!
4. She´ll have made her appearance, the Committees will be done with her, and John Effin can come in tomorrow, free and clear of this mess, while Her Hillness goes home on Bill´s arm to start building her 2016 campaign.

They have heard from her in closed hearings, so most of this is for show anyway. But it would still be nice to see the GOP members give it to her anyway. They have waited a long time for this opportunity, and there should be no deference given to her.
As far as Ms Lamb and others.. they were fired, but then hired on in another area.. so no one lost their job permanently anyway...well, other than Chris Stevens and the other 3 brave heros. Pathetic! Heads should have rolled from this and if they dont get Obama in on the grilling end, I give up on them all.

Let´s see if they do a "close-up" with camera--I want to know if the flu, concussion and blood clot turned into facelift and botox treatments. Hard to tell while wearing those huge horn-rimmed specs with coke bottle glass.

Which reminds me.

What´s the over/under on how many "I don´t recall" and its variants that Hillary! will give today.

And will it surpass the number of those answers she gave in her Grand Jury testimony over Whitewater/Cattle Futures/how Rose Law Firm billing records turned up in her private quarters.

Let the lying begin. The opening remarks required a major barf alert. Never heard such fawning, sycophantic babble from both sides. If I were an early morning drinker I´d be wasted by now if I took a shot each time the word transparency has already been used.

#25 - that´s what I want to know - where are the survivors - why no big "People" magazine with stories from those survivors -

oh, now she is talking so emotionally about putting her arm around the shoulders of those who lost loved ones in Benghazi -

I keep hanging on to that old saying, "the wheels of justice grind exceedingly slow, yet they grind exceedingly fine".

Trying to analyze the coke-bottle glasses. She evidently can´t put her contacts in, but for what reason? I didn´t know a blood clot or a concussion would present a problem in wearing contacts. The only thing I can think of would be an eye infection. Or is this a subtle hint to the Congressional committees that you don´t punch someone wearing glasses - especially big thick ones. Or is this another subtle way of hiding? The picture on Drudge makes her look like the head secretary in a law office.

Where is Benghazi?

It wasn´t clear!

Why didn´t you make a call to some of those who escaped?

It wasn´t clear who they were.

When they escaped do you know where they went?

It wasn´t clear.

How many were there who es....?

It wasn´t clear. But, all the investigations confirm that what wasn´t clear was a fantastic job by the IC! It takes time to get help to these incidents.

Help was within hours. Why were they asked to stand down?

It wasn´t clear!!!

Can´t watch this pretentious witch just like I can´t listen to King Barry . . . . Is anyone even getting near to asking her about the phoney Youtube video cover- up or is that too much to hope for?
Anyone?

Buffalo, N.Y., Gathers Pussy
Willows for Dyngus Day
Wall Street Journal, by Will Connors    Original Article

To prepare for Dyngus Day, Eddy Dobosiewicz drives to an abandoned lot in east Buffalo, N.Y., in search of an elusive commodity: pussy willows. Dyngus Day celebrations, to be staged Monday in Buffalo and a handful of other U.S. cities, trace their roots to ancient Polish fertility rites centered around the end of Lent and the advent of spring. As part of the festivities, young men traditionally splash water on women they fancy. Women carry pussy willow branches to hit the men they like. But this year, after an especially harsh winter, Dyngus Day organizers are worried that there won´t be enough

The Increasing Desperation of Democrats

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Obama admin wants to require companies
to give workers’ numbers, addresses
to unions before labor elections

The Obama administration is poised to change regulations to allow for union “ambush elections” in which workers have less time to decide whether or not to join a union — and in which workers’ phone numbers and home addresses are provided to unions. The administration’s National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) proposed rules would allow for union elections — in which workers at a company vote whether or not to unionize — to be held 10 days after a petition is filed. And what, exactly, would be happening to the unions during those 10 days? The new rules require employers to disclose

Discovery Channel Cancels Its Terrible Idea
Everest Jump Now That 13 Sherpas Are Dead

Following the deadly avalanche that killed at least 13 people, the Discovery Channel has realized that a live jump off the summit of Mount Everest is just a bad, bad plan and has cancelled the special. "In light of the overwhelming tragedy at Mount Everest and out of respect for the families of the fallen, Discovery Channel will not be going forward with Everest Jump Live," the network wrote on its website. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Sherpa community." Joby Ogwyn was to jump off Everest in a wing suit on May 11. On Friday, while the climbers

The Epic Hypocrisy of Tom Steyer
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article

Billionaire hedge fund operator and “green” energy magnate Tom Steyer has pledged $100 million in the 2014 election cycle to help Democratic candidates who oppose the Keystone pipeline and who favor “green” energy over fossil fuels. Steyer claims to be a man of principle who has no financial interest in the causes he supports, but acts only for the public good. That is a ridiculous claim: Steyer is the ultimate rent-seeker who depends on government connections to produce subsidies and mandates that make his “green” energy investments profitable. He also is, or was until recently, a major investor in Kinder

What happens when presidents lie? The American public has had plenty of experience with this in recent years. Liar-president could be the new hyphenate occupation like writer-producer or architect-contractor. Almost every president has shaded things a bit, but three modern ones have been unabashed bull artists — Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton and, of course, Barack Obama. Clinton ultimately got a pass for his prevarications. Nixon didn’t. Neither deserved one. But our current liar-president deserves one even less, because his lies have been of substance, affecting policy. Nixon and Clinton just lied in self-defense — normal human cowardice. Obama is something else again. He

Obama shuts down debate
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article

When President Obama trumpeted the 8 million figure representing people who had signed up for ObamaCare, he didn’t just declare it a victory. He declared the debate over — and told Republicans “it’s well time to move on.” Now, we understand the eagerness of politicians to declare debates over. It’s certainly easier than defending ObamaCare’s broken promises, or even providing the breakdowns behind that 8 million top-line number that would let us measure if the program is getting the sign-ups it needs. Increasingly, however, it seems that the “shut up and move on” trope has become the go-to response of liberals on

´America´s royal baby´: How Chelsea´s first

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

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

White House asks American parents to

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Stop dressing so tacky for church

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I
