Hillary Clinton flounders on
the Benghazi front

Telegraph [UK], by Nile Gardiner

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/23/2013 3:15:37 PM

It was not exactly a bravura performance today from the Secretary of State, who testified this morning before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. Hillary Clinton came across as defiant, evasive, blasé, and at times hugely unconvincing when answering questions from Republican Senators about the death of four Americans at the hand of Islamist terrorists in Benghazi last September, including the assassination of the US Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens. After listening to several hours of Mrs. Clinton defending her administration’s handling of the Benghazi debacle, including UN Ambassador Susan Rice’s preposterous suggestion on Sunday morning talk shows

Comments:
Nile nails it. And whoever was responsible for choosing the accompanying photograph--congratulations! It´s the kind of lunch-losing apparel mistake Clinton usually makes instead of the somber and symbolic Islam Green she wore at the hearing today.

It is sad to watch the hearings! We need better than what we see! Questions need to be asked to get to the truth, not disavow any responsibility!

Hillary snickers and her liberal friends support/congratulate her constantly, instead of really seeking answers to what happened in Benghazi!

With the way first a Republican then a Democrat questions Hillary, it simply gives each one time to posture themselves and their personal agenda.

We need a hearing wherein truth is sought and only the questions are asked that will bring about what "really happened"!

Again, this is not our best moment!

Congress needs to make a stand for righteousness, not political-correctness!

Pray for America!

This is not the country I once thought provided truth to be honored/respected/sought.

Look back to Watergate, where the Dems were totally committed to questioning everyone to prove their point.

The Dems do not judge their own, only excuse them, congratulate them for "getting away" with whatever they have done.

The Clintons have proved they know how to "use" the law to their advantage!

I´m trying to select the biggest whopper told by hillary, and must conclude that it was when she said that the State department did not question the survivors of the attack, because the FBI was going to investigate. But the FBI did not send agents to Benghazi for a month, and CNN went into the consulate a few days after the attack, and found all sorts of documents.
(The republicans have been pitifully incompetent in their questioning so far, with the exception of Senator Johnson.)

~~It underscores the fact that Clinton has been a less than impressive Secretary of State, whose leadership on an array of foreign policy matters, from Syria to Egypt and Iran, has been underwhelming.~~

SOMEONE finally says it! Listening to the boot-licking demoRat members is beyond sickening!

What else would we expect?

The Pig-in-a-Pantsuit lied about the "vast, right-wing conspiracy." She lied about "landing under sniper fire" in Bosnia. She lied about the Rose Law Firm billing records. She lied about the White House travel office. She lied about Vince Foster.

Bill and Hillary Clinton are congenital liars. Lying is what they do best. Lies are all you´ll get if you put either of them under oath.

This is okay with Democrats. The Democrat Party is founded on lies, subsists on lies, and is comprised of the most pathological liars in history.

This is who these people are.

Basicly, Hillary provided not a heck of a lot of help, and no illumination as to what went on both in Benghazi and in the Bawdy House at 1600 Penn Ave. About all she accomplished was to polish the door knobs on her way out of office.
And you know her replacement Senator Lurch will be of no help...Most probably;"... Blame Bush and the Republicans..."

At times i wanted to throw something at the screen; at others, to throw up.

The faux tears. ugh. The pompous outrage atthe insistance that we know who was behind the attack, and why.

If knowing why the attacks happened doesn´t really matter, why were Hill-of-beans and BO & Dem/Lefties so insistent on blaming a stupid (unknown) video?

It all matters otherwise she and the whole unseemly regime would not have done everything possible to deflect investigation and interrogation until after the election.

When she was being praised for her "hard work" why didn´t someone ask why wine tasting in Australia (?) was more urgent that testifying in Congress?

sickening.

She also said there was no real-time video of the actual attack. We were told all along that it was watched in real time and people from the state dept. testified that they watched it in real time.

You folks are too much. Do you really think this will matter? They will paint this as a partisan attack (war on a woman) against an old enemy, Hillary.

If Obama´s record didn´t matter prior to the election, do you think this will matter? It should, but it won´t.

I know you did, OP, but #2 obviously missed it and thought the horrible picture was from today.

Brit Hume was wearing an Islam Green tie tonight the same color as Hillary´s suit. Interesting. He also blamed the Republican Senators and Congressmen for pontificating and talking on and on so they couldn´t press her on her answers before their time was up. This always happens in these hearings.

Thank you, OP!

This read is a "Delicious Dish" long overdue about the ridiculous Witch
who parades around in a charade as SoS.

Personally this take is so accurate...
and so juicy...
I would make this a Must Read...

Why am I the first... and so far only...

What information did Hillary even offer today? She is just "flaunting" her position in the Liberal party and those in the Senate and House upheld her too.

This is America today!

Pray for our beloved country.

We really do deserve better!j

A truly emetic announcement from the grim but indispensable Swedish flatpack furniture emporium IKEA: they are considering changing the recipe of their most popular food line--meatballs--in order to help save the world from global warming. [Snip] IKEA--the place you go to, reluctantly, because the furniture is so cheap and practical, not because you want to save the planet for Mother Gaia--actually employs a "head of sustainability"? If that´s not a strong dump signal for the stock, I don´t know what is. What´s worse, though, is that IKEA actually admits to allowing the kind of food it serves in its restaurants

Choc horror: It might be Easter but the

demand in China is outstripping cocoa
bean production and forcing prices up
Daily Mail [UK], by Emma Glanfield    Original Article

The price of chocolate could soar over the next few years as surging demand puts further pressure on the global cocoa crisis--and experts predict the demand could become unsustainable by 2020. Experts are warning that a growing taste for chocolate in Asia--particularly in China--means cocoa farmers will need more help to provide a greater amount to export or manufacturers will be forced to use less cocoa in their products. It is predicted chocolate prices will soar to keep up with the rising demand--otherwise consumers will increasingly be offered products filled with substitutes, such as nuts and fruits, to ‘pack out’ chocolate bars.

An investigation into Birmingham schools at the centre of a plot to introduce hardline Islamist teaching has found pupils were illegally segregated and non-Muslim students were discriminated against. [Snip] Department for Education inspectors were ordered into Park View School and its sister schools, Golden Hillock and Nansen, after a letter dubbed ´Trojan Horse´ was uncovered apparently outlining a plot by Muslim hardliners to drive moderate headteachers out of schools. The unsigned and undated letter claimed that a small but radical group of Muslims was pursuing its own agenda in the classrooms, with uncooperative headteachers and governors forced out.

In 1925, Rudyard Kipling wrote an uncharacteristically restrained and sombre short story called The Gardener. It tells of a woman’s search for her illegitimate son, who goes missing in action on the Western Front. After the Armistice, she learns that he has been killed, and is buried in a military cemetery. Arriving there, she finds a man planting flowers in the earth and asks him where she might find her “nephew”. The man looks at her “with infinite compassion,” and tells her “Come with me, and I will show you where your son lies”. As she leaves the graveyard, she

   

 



 
Harry Reid calls dissident Nevada ranchers
´domestic terrorists´ following show of
force against the federal government

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

White House blames fox for

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

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
