Outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, testifying before Congress on the deadly Sept. 11 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, choked up Wednesday as she assured lawmakers that the security of American diplomats was a “personal” issue for her. [Snip] Clinton’s voice broke as she recalled welcoming home the “flag-draped caskets” of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans killed in the terrorist strike at the consulate and putting her arms around bereaved family members.

Comments: What an actor! If Clinton had really been upset about this she would have made an effort to testify sooner. Instead, she´s had plenty of time to rehearse her staged "grief".
PIAPS was spewing way too much b.s. and the senators asked shamelessly light-weight questions that are an insult to any of us who followed this story...when Sen Boxer started up, just had to turn off the entire cover-up show...will get my updates from reliable sites and my fellow LDotters...
Barbara Boxer was an absolute embarrassment to the nation with her performance in "teeing it up" for Hillary. The Democrats made fools of themselves with their lavish praise of her. This is a national embarrassment because the Senate should be asking tough questions instead of kissing her butt. Throw these people out in 2014 and 2016.
I did not see the "testimony." Is there any chance that on the House side where the GOP is supposedly in charge that tough questions will be asked with follow-ups that make this horrible liar of a woman squirm? Is there any chance the House hearing won´t be a travesty?
I remember how you greeted those draped coffins with lies about a video on YouTube. You have no shame, but you do bear the responsibility for four dead Americans. The LIV won´t care should you run in 2016. I can´t wait to hear the bidding war for handouts between you and Joe. /s
That the American people -some of them, too many- continue to tolerate and actually respect a person like this is an ominous sign for the future health of the Republic. The Clintons, like Obama, are not the cause of what ails the country, but they are symptoms of a disease in the electorate that, if unchecked, will result in final ruin.
ObamaCare was sold to the nation as a compassionate response to the approximately 47 million uninsured Americans. Yet, 30 million Americans will still not be insured even after the frenetic misrepresentation and bribery required to pass the bill and the botched rollout. Plus, the policies of millions of insured Americans are being cancelled and replaced with HHS "approved" policies that have higher premiums. Then, following the wipeout in the individual market, millions of Americans currently covered by employer-provided plans will have their policies cancelled because they are deemed inadequate and unacceptable under the ObamaCare regulations issued by HHS.
Muslims groups around the world are crying Islamophobia and playing the victim card as horrific Islamic-motivated crimes, such as grooming and rape-gangs, rage on with impunity throughout the Western world, especially in Europe. Rape or grooming gangs, which are almost entirely Muslim, are committing a crime that is religiously mandated in Islamic doctrine. Muslim grooming gangs have been operating unchallenged in Europe for over 20 years, especially in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, and France.
I am one who steers very clear of tinfoil hat conspiracy theories. I often believe progressives plant stories in order to distract and disrupt, enabling them to pursue their true goals and objectives. That’s why I stress the importance of staying focused on the modern liberal socialist policies of the Obama administration, not the sideshow antics. However, as a former combat commander, I have been trained to look for trends. And I believe we’ve found a very disturbing one. It seems that backdoor gun control is in full effect in the United States.
Wake up, Mom and Dad: your government has its paws all over your children during school hours -- always figuratively, and too often literally. If parents are taken out of the education equation completely, something will fill the vacuum. And that something is bound to be the police state. When kids in Brazil, Indiana participated in a mock drug raid at Clay County Courthouse as part of the annual October Red Ribbon Awareness week, they got a lesson in what it´s like to live in a police state.
Comrade Obama and the Politburo, both conveniently located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, are in the midst of overhauling the nation´s military. Radically so, as befits the nation´s most radical president. Downsizing the armed forces is the cover, in part. The people´s savior is giving the heave-ho to military brass who can´t quite get with the program, which might be described as inflicting a smothering political correctness on the nation´s armed forces. Political correctness is actually too charitable.
It has been disclosed in a recently published book about the 2012 campaign, Double Down by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, that the president told aides that he is "really good at killing people" with drones. I think the president is being far too modest. Drones aren´t the half of it. He´s really good at killing lots of things. With ObamaCare, he is killing the most effective healthcare system in the world.
Healthcare.gov ´is not firing effectively on all pistons,´ White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters on Thursday, in what may be the understatement of the week. When MailOnline visited the website shortly after Carney´s daily briefing, the Obamacare portal spewed a nonsensical mixture of computer code instead of a typical login screen. Gone were words like ´Username´ and ´Password.´In their place were jumbled programming strings like ´???ffe.ee.myAccount.login.username???´ and ´???ffe.ee.myAccount.login.password???´ Carney insisted, though, that the website will work
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
