Clinton denies ´delay´ in Benghazi
response, despite accounts

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/23/2013 10:04:02 AM

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday defended the administration´s response the night of the September 2012 terror attack in Libya, testifying before Congress that there were "no delays in decision-making" despite accounts to the contrary. The secretary, after missing prior hearings due to illness, testified on the attack for the first time Wednesday morning before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. She said she has "no higher priority" than the security of her department´s staff, and that she is committed to making the department "safer, stronger and more secure." "As I have said many times,

Comments:
This is nothing but a circus. Boxer just pitched Clinton the most beautiful softball ever when she brought up the alleged lack of funding for security in Benghazi. Democrats are exquisite in their ability to twist facts to make themselves appear blameless. Izza previously testified that the regime was sitting on $2 billion earmarked for diplomatic security. This is just outrageous.

Huma is going to be jealous; That Tongue bath that Babs Boxer just gave Hellary during her turn to "question" her was pretty darn passionate.

Safety is her "highest priority" - - but after four years on the job - - she still hasn´t gotten around to it.

Big sloppy kisses.

Piaps takes responsibility in general but not for any specific action or inaction.

I wonder if she lets her personal staff get away with cheap excuses like that.

This is amazing! Hillary was not involved in security matters - the Secretary of State, she said, is not involved in the decision making. She didn´t say who was responsible, and there was no follow up question.
She also didn´t know nuffin about that special national guard security unit that offered to stay in benghazi at no cost to the State Department, but someone at State (Charlene Lamb, I believe) turned down the offer.
It has quickly become clear to me that no one was in charge at State. No one.
But HIllary is being praised by both sides for her wonderful service.
Finally, Hillary said she had nuffin to do with the selection of Susan Rice to make the rounds of the news programs, and had no input with the content of Rice´s remarks.
Amazing.
Most of these senators are lawyers, and they don´t know how to cross-examine.

It´s all Congress´s fault because they will not give State the money for diplomatic security.

"It´s all Congress´s fault because they will not give State the money for diplomatic security."

I sincerely hope this comment is an attempt at sarcasm, but cause it is pure BS.

The military offered to send in security and State turned them down, not once but twice. It was more convenient for "State" if the group in Bhengazi ended up dead, then there would be nobody to refute "States" claim that the whole thing was precipitated by some obscure anti-Islamic video that almost nobody watched. This whole episode shows the Administration as the despicable political cowards that they are. Sacrificing American lives for political gain, just disgusting!!! Obama and Clinton have blood on their hands. Words cannot do justice for the contempt I have for these two anti-American traitors.

I believe that was indeed sarcasm, #8.

That was the conclusion that Boxer and Clinton came up with during her ´questioning" time.

This Benghazi Disturbance appears to be over for now - until it happens again. At that time, everyone on Capitol Hill will be running around bumping into each other asking that immortal question - `What can we do to be sure this never happens again?`

Meanwhile, Hillary will probably make a `standing room only` appearance on The View by the end of the month whereby she will be welcomed with a standing ovation that will last half the show....

second post apologies, but, #8, a special security unit from I believe the Utah National Guard was in Benghazi, and offered to stay there, at no cost to the State Department.
And someone at State said ´no thanks.´ The colonel in charge of that security unit testfied before that House committee, back in October, and his comments, as above, were confirmed by assistant secretary kennedy as well as by charlene lamb.
Turning away such a free offer tells me, implicitly, that the president´s policy position on such matters was to show the filthy islamofascist terrorist pigs in libyan government that we would not resist them.

Come on its the Reid Senate, nothing truthfull will come out of it. In fact any thing that comes out will be the opposite to the truth. So this means Hillary admits there were delays.

No surprise that many of the ´Names´ seem to use this site for their agenda of on air commentary. L Dotters are quick witted and sharp as tacks. We know what we know and unafraid to say it. How much longer will Dear Reader allow WTP to tell truths over the waves? Still awaiting to hear regarding those 30 plus individuals hidden from sight.

She needs to be grilled on the POLICY of letting the locals be security at our embassies. The very idea is so idiotic and hippie-fied, yet it is scarcely mentioned.

I believe her when she says "There were no delays in decision-making". I´m sure they decided very quickly to sweep this under the rug, lie about the video being the cause, and to blame the ´lack of funding´. They decided quickly that this was never going to stick to them. It will probably work, I´m sad to say.

Obama administration’s ‘Culture of
intimidation’ seen in Nevada ranch standoff
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:09:44 PM     Post Reply
Sending scores of armed agents along with helicopters and dogs to confront an elderly Nevada rancher over grazing fees may seem like overkill, but critics say it’s not inconsistent with the federal government’s recent approach to environmental enforcement. The simmering truce between the Bundys and the Bureau of Land Management comes after high-profile raids last year by armed federal agents on small-time gold miners in tiny Chicken, Alaska, and guitar makers at the Gibson Guitar facilities in Tennessee. That doesn’t include more subtle threats, such as recent efforts by the Obama administration to raise grazing fees or pressure

Congressman: Obama ´Has Been Forced
to Deport a Huge Number of Americans´
Cybercast News Service, by Susan Jones    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 10:02:50 PM     Post Reply
Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) is among the Democrats pressing Congress to take up immigration reform. On Tuesday, he told a conference call that deportations are breaking families apart and leaving children in foster care. "So the human toll has been horrific. This president, by implementation of existing law, has been forced to deport a huge number of Americans." Although Garcia may consider the deportees to be "Americans," legally they are not. But they might become citizens if Garcia and other immigration advocates get their way. Democrats are urging Republicans to sign their discharge petition, which would force a House vote on

Oversight member on Lois Lerner

Key members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform expressed outrage at revelations made in newly released emails showing ex-IRS official Lois Lerner coordinating with the Department of Justice on prosecuting nonprofit groups. One committee member said the emails prove why the IRS is “scared to give up the rest of Lois Lerner’s emails.” IRS commissioner John Koskinen was recently threatened with contempt for stonewalling the committee’s investigation. Koskinen claimed in a hearing that it could take years to provide the documents requested by Oversight. “The release of new documents

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

So I´m outside yesterday leaving work, and a woman stops me to say how much she loves me. I get this all the time. We chat a bit and she goes on to tell me how much she appreciates my covering what the other guys won´t. Then she said something that really stuck with me. "Neil, thank god you´re not cool." I told her, "is it that obvious?" She laughed. I laughed. But she got me thinking. It happens sometimes. I´m not cool. But I´m ok with that. Good thing, because I never was cool. But just admitting that to the mainstream media is very un-cool. Because the mainstream media

Why is US Senator Harry

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

The Terrifying Implications of

Thank God for Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration J. Russell George. His investigation of what turned out to be the IRS abuse scandal may well have saved the Constitution and the nation. For his fair and impartial investigation into the Internal Revenue Service’s abuse of Americans who dissent from President Obama’s agenda, Democrats have called for an investigation of him. George should not be investigated, but perhaps the Democrats who want him investigated — Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) and Matt Cartwright (D-PA) — should be. Their call for an investigation of the investigator might constitute interference with the ongoing investigation

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
