The Day Accountability Died
PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/24/2013 4:44:03 AM

Outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spent roughly seven hours on the Hill today fielding statements lauding her brilliance, praise for how many miles she has flown around the world, and the occassional question about Benghazi. Remember that? On 9-11-12, four Americans died in a terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The Obama campaign/administration had just spent their political convention crowing that al-Qaeda is “on the run.” The Benghazi terrorist attack suggested otherwise. Beginning shortly after the attack and continuing through September 26, President Obama and his administration blamed

She takes responsibility the way Janet Reno took responsibility for Waco.

What she´s saying is, I take responsibility. Let´s move on. I want to be president next.

Republicans have not held Obama accountable - for anything. Why should they scapegoat Hillary at this point in the charade?

The "president" appoints Van Jones, a communist (!!!) - no accountability
The "president" helps cover-up Fast & Furious - no accountability
The "president" grinds the economy to a halt - no accountability
The "president" slanders Mitt Romney - no accountability
The "president" schemes with the Russians to weaken US defense - no accountability
The "president" spews pro-socialist (= anti-USA) collectivist propaganda like "you didn´t build that" - no accountability
The "president" slanders the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, and Christian gun owners - no accountability
The "president" colludes in the corruption of the nation´s no-longer free press - no accountability
The "president" shreds his oath of office by declaring "the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam" - no accountability

Meanwhile, Republicans desperately defend Democrat-Socialist Big Government schemes like Medicare and Social Security.

Why in the world should accountability start now?

For all 7 hours, a woman sat to the right of Hillary and just a little back. She in Under Secretary Maria Otero who is responsible for security, counter-terrorism, and LGBT rights. She is responsible for the country assessments for counter=terrorism which came out in May 2012. She is also the State Dept point person for LGBT rights. Guess what was the priority in 2012. Maybe Senator Kerry could consider some different priorities.

In re #3, it is a scheme in that you have no ownership rights. If you die at age 60, and leave no spouse or minor dependants, all of that money goes away. As originally created the expected life expectancy was 66 years so the Social Security retirement age as set at 65. So, if you deferred 2.5% of your income for 45 years and your employer matched that deferment, you would have 2.25 years of income with an expected remaining life of one year. I´d call that a scheme.

Clinton played the Senators like a fiddle. Her shouting scene, “What difference does it does it make?” was a carefully rehearsed and perfectly executed feint meant to set up the next, and critical line; “Look there a four Americans dead here.”

What she did there is usurp the charge they wanted to bring against her. She took ownership of that line, flinging it at them before they could do so at her. It was a beautifully played finesse, no doubt planned and practiced, and executed with perfect timing.

It is fascinating to see the role of scoundrel played to perfection (and, of course, the role of the scoundrel’s befuddled foils done so well at the same time.)

I watched the entire thing as well, hoping that it would get better when the House got their chance. But, never happened. By the time they said their gratitudes for her service and stated the obvious each and every time, the questions were grouped together and no time for answers. Although I did hear one person say if they had allowed her to answer she would have spent the whole 5 min spewing nonsense anyway. But with all the lawyers and brains up there, you´d think someone would have developed a way to question witnesses so they cant avoid answering! I bet Trey Gowdy would have got some answers.

Hillary was well trained for the show. That´s what she was doing during her delay in showing up. "What difference does it make" then she says we have to investigate to make sure it doesn´t happen again? If it doesn´t make any difference, why investigate?

Why in the heck do we pay the salaries of these pathetic public servants? They have to be the worst bunch of media whores (pardon my language) to come down the pike in a very long time. I started watching the proceedings but was fuming within five minutes. It was obvious this hearing was a dog and pony show. We learned nothing other than our elected officials are not interested in accountability. They failed in their responsibility to those families to find out what happened in Benghazi and who was to blame. It was a pathetic self-serving spectacle. Those four Americans deserved better.

It´s time to accept that the Republicans have taken an "everybody for himself" attitude. Their goal is now just to save themselves and to hell with the country. There´s not a one of them that is willing to sacrifice their job to sound the alarm. ( yet they expect a soldier to give his/ her life).

A corrupt people will demand a corrupt government.

It´s going to get a lot worse. We may also have to just think of ourselves and our family. And to hell with this government. If there ever was an example as to why to withdraw support from the Republican Party, these hearings were it. Lack of preparation, lack of nerve, and complete disregard for the job they were elected to do was in plain view.

Agree that all of the Senators (R) completely let Hildebeast off the hook. Worse, they gave her a stage to act out all the scenes she´s been rehearsing the last few months while she was in hiding.

One Senator (R) actually held his own and that was Rand Paul. You can see the separation he is working to get from Marco Rubio. My guess is that there will be four main contenders in 2016 (if we all survive that long): Biden/Hillary, Rubio/Paul.

Paul laid the groundwork for Hillary to be taken out. While they let her slide, there were too many sound bites that can be used in campaign ads. "Q: Four Americans just died...what do you have to say Sec Clinton? A: What difference does it make?"

Paul also has shown us that he will take Hillary on toe to toe. Rubio was more of that "let´s be polite and civil" pablum a la McCain in 2008 and Romney/Ryan in 2012.

We need a hard charging conservative. Go Paul!

If any attendees of the hearing had been told they were going to a roast for Clinton, they would have emerged at the end of the debacle and stated they were misled and it was a big joke. What a sickening display of fawning, back slapping and petting. There seems to be a sick "you can do no wrong" code of honor within the beltway. Hey, you got some Americans killed! high fives and "don´t worry about it".

When Hildebeast said her Springer-esque statement about, "What difference does it make?", it would have been nice if someone had said, "The differnence it makes is you and your cronies tried to obscure the motives of the killers. Why did YOU want us to believe it was a local protest when it was obviously Al Qaeda operatives?!". Did anyone mention/ask her about gun-running?

Her flying off the handle and waving her hands indicate the probable behaviour before all those people were killed during the Clinton reign/co-presidency. Bill how could you have married a hag like that?! No wonder you had so many affairs. The troopers at the Arkansas Governor´s mansion/Forbes reported that once during one of her tirades she screamed to Bill she, "needed to be touched more than once a year". ha ha ha ha ha ha.

Exactly #27 - what does it matter how they died except you and your boss made every effort to say they died because of this reason as opposed to that reason.

And her statements in that pseudo southern midwest drawl of "I believe in transparency.." made my skin crawl.

I really think Hillary was auditioning for 2016; the woman alone before all these men being grilled and the feigned touch of emotion at describing puttiing her arms around the family memebers. And all the tv and radio talking heads complimenting her on her performance.

With "leadership" like this, I say let all the women out there serve in front line combat units - just look at Hillary...

Anyone still mystified by the behavior of any and all in Washington - including ´our´ side - should take the time to drive a full loop around the DC Beltway.

Behold the New Rome. Yes, there are nominally private companies inside those gleaming, gilded edifices but they and their government paymasters are all in the business of taking your cash at the point of a sword and lavishing it on their cronies and, in turn, themselves.

It´s one thing to debate gun control, terrorism, or immigration on teevee but any thoughts of rocking the boat are quickly suppressed by the prospect of a luxurious existence provided by 300 million people you´ve never met and don´t care to.

A preview of "All Is Lost In DC". Commie democrats, half dead vacant headed RINO republicans. The last performance of a sick, dying, once great circus. Communism is here, all laying out in obedience. Not one loud persistent voice in the lot. Marco Rubio, a traitorous zero, as if he´d been coached by the censoring TV actor Diane Sawyer. Marco fails the same day Mickelson apologises for speaking like a normal citizen, trying to avoid taxation tyranny. Where is the outspoken Breitbart today? Not a one in greed addicted Washington or out corrupted TV. Oddly enough, there isn´t even one spokesperson AT Breitbart, on their entire staff, that is willing to speak out and at least echo Andrew´s voice.
Starting with Bilary´s disgraceful pack of lies, it looks like they are all afraid of sudden, premature death. Is that ridiculous?

Accountability will have died if we out here throw in the proverbial towel.

We do have a formidable foe, a conglomeration of ruthless left-wing politicians and brown-noser media & entertainment toadies, who frame the arguments. This is compounded by the "opposition Party" which thinks everything is as it has always been.

These are the ones who have so diligently kept the public ignorant, fat and happy. Bread and Circuses for the 21st century.

#12, you are right. But this display of anger was counterpoint to her over-the-top emotional outburst as she recounted the tarmac event.

Looked at together, with the intervening cold and perfunctory responses, she really appeared psychotic.

Is she on meds? Was the so-called "blood clot" actually a computer chip which slipped from the cerebral cortex where aliens had inserted it when she was a student at Wellesley?

I mean, almost collapsing in a heap of blubbering tears and then pounding the table and flailing her arms about, gesticulating wildly.

Obviously something amiss... too much booze? too few prozacs? cutting back too quickly on the oxys?

Rant and rave all you want. It will not change a thing. Vote all the times you want. It will not change a thing. Politicians are in it for themselves, not for us peons. Get use to it and move on. Just because they ban guns doesn´t mean you cannot have guns. Just because abortion is legal doesn´t mean you have to have an abortion. Just because there is gay marriage does not mean you have to marry a gay. On and on and on. If all you are going to do is complain and vote for whoever they tell you too, life will suck for you (politically speaking). Simply take care of yourself and your family and do not rely on the Government for anything. Don´t like high taxes? Start your own business and easily hide most income. There are ways to live happily, even in this environment, but you have to take action, not just talk and vote.

Move on fellow conservatives. If you want a new vision of what it means to be a conservative gather together and start an new group under a different name.

The bootlicking by OUR side was most nauseating. Hillary Clinton, and her weird daughter, are treated like royalty by not only the Democrats. Accountability died awhile ago, not just yesterday. A CEO messes up and this same crowd of egotistical bureaucrats scream for their resignation AND work for the destruction of their lives. These clowns either break laws themselves or stand silent while the other party does - millions get hurt and nothing is done. The biggest disgrace? HOW can the survivors of Benghazi AND the widows stay silent (cover for) Clinton? What sort of person does that when your loved one died because of these people???

During his inaugural address, Obama reiterated his intent to bully congressional Republicans into submitting to his socialist agenda. Yesterday’s hearings was a golden opportunity to demonstrate to Obama – through his surrogate, Hillary – that they will not be intimidated, and that they stand for the conservative principles (like accountability, honesty, a deep regard for human life, etc.) held by most Americans.

Instead, they groveled – on camera – before this lying, slimeball, partisan, al Qaeda-loving hag whose assistant, Huma, has strong ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and whose abject failure as Secretary of State led to the brutal murder of America’s Ambassador to Libya and 3 other Americans. Except for Rand Paul, who showed that he actually has a pair – the Republicans that participated in this pitiful charade evoked images of submissive, spineless wimps licking the stilettos of their repulsive dominatrix, Hillary Clinton, while repeating, mantra-like, “More humiliation please, mistress!” They are so afraid of what the liberal media might say about them that they are unwilling to do the job they were elected to do.

If that’s what the Republican Party has become, then they’ve lost this life-long Republican – forever. Ronald Reagan would be disgusted by lot of them.

Well what a waste of time watching the girations and self aclaim by this liar Hillary Clinton.´What´s the difference ´. Not one question asked about Obama perhaps where was he ,getting ready for a photo opt and vote getter at Las Vegas. The american people still did not get the answer why Obama,Panetta Hillary et al insisted that the attack on the Benghazi Compound was due to an antimuslim video. This scenerio was pushed on the public to bolster up a world wide announcement by Obama that El Quada was dead. In fact the US ambassador to UN parroted on several networks that indeed the spontaneous uprising was due to the video .About the interrogation what a farce , circus waste of time. Each Democrat who questioned Clinton spoke of platitudes affection what a great Secretary . Also each Republican questioning started with the niceties. Read on , Not one questioner got down to the nitties. Who issued the directive that it was fault of the movie. Who made the directive not to assist the occupant in the Conulate fighting for 5 Hours for their lives. Panetta spoke a few days later that they had no force equipped nearby that could assist. What hogwash . A fighter jet was 15 to 25 minutes away from Sicily. A troop carrier at the most an hour. No question asked the injured and others who were in the consulate . WHY THE GAG ! Boehner if he is to remain Speaker should have got all the Republican questioners and thrashed out the questions cut out the niceties. 4 heroes are dead as a consequence of incompetance starting with the occupant in the WH.

We do see and are appalled by the lack of integrity inside the beltway. The theatrical Oz curtain was pulled back yesterday & today in these show-biz shams called, ´Congressional Hearings,´ revealing apparently scripted corruption.

Hillary´s response in the middle of all her hysterics was "read the ARB report". Not just the public version, but the classified report.

One has to wonder exactly what is in the classified version, possibly everything that has been speculated on here about the true mission of the Bengahzi outpost and it´s CIA detachment.

The fact that these topics weren´t discussed in the public version of the ARB report, nor brought up by anyone at the hearing, strongly suggests there´s lots of deep background that will never see the light of day.

If you ask me, I think Republicans are too afraid of the eventual media backlash should they appear to really nail this lying weasel serving as SoS, on her lies.

While shrieking about being responsible, that´s the last thing the PIAPS wants to be held for.

H Clinton´s testimony clearly shows arrested moral development. She will likely get away with a huge failure...all in plain view. This is not "just politics." This is an instance of social degradation.

It´s hard to guess when accountability died......it is just that we are now able to uncover the lies and deceits with phone cameras and instant communication. I remember being puzzled and disappointed when the GOP had the opportunity to smack down some crook and didn´t. Now I realize they have a mutual agreement to cover for each other....they are all corrupt and no one wants to risk losing his place at the cash cow(us) teat. And now I understand why BOTH parties went on the attack of Palin or anyone who sided with tea party values. Can´t have any of that! There really has to be a complete turning out of the criminal government we have. I´m too old to fight, but I can help fund a real patriot.

What difference does it make? The lack of accountability goes back at least as far as the murder of Vince Foster, doesn´t it Hilary? Huh? Oh, as far as schemes, I have a neighbor who paid into Medicare for one year before retiring and has been getting it for the last forty years for free. Social Security came up with SSDI, a totally unfunded gimmick which has done its part to destroy the system. And there are hundreds of thousands of old people who have gotten much more out of the system than they ever put into it. FDR was a jerk.

No 54 - how do we know if someone is a patriot when you vote for them as it seems that they talk like a conservative, country loving person until they get into congress or the senate and then, whamo, they go Washington on us. I don´t think there is anything we can do. I think the Republicans who failed to vote in the last election (about 3 million, I hear) have given our country away and there is nothing we can do. I think it is gone, forever......

Ditto every point made by Bryan Preston in this piece. Especially, Disappointingly, Sen. Marco Rubio asked no tough questions and he wasted the few minutes that he had to question the secretary. If he intends to be a leader, he missed a major opportunity today. He failed to lead. This is not a good sign from the popular Tea-flavored Floridian. It’s worth asking why he chose to further the Benghazi cover-up today.


I agree, #12. She also deftly employed that tactic perfected by her husband Bill, and "courageously accepted responsibility, as Secretary of State", while rejecting any and all personal blame for those deaths, and anything to do with Benghazi.

Those who did manage to remind people that this was a hearing to find answers about the horrific actions that happened on her watch, rather than a laudatory public farewell gathering and send off to her next personal political adventure, were cast as mean-spirited attackers.

Barbara Boxer is "infuriated" at Rand Paul for "attacking" Hillary.

All the time this "questioning" was going on I was thinking how I would love to have her sitting before a select panel of Ldotters. It might have been fun to see her try to wriggle out of those questions.

Hillary bungled the "Lance Armstrong choke-up".

Hillary claimed other scenario to a mob protest was "Some guys out on a walk looking for somebody to kill!"

NO, The complaint scenario was jihadists scoping out the consulate for weeks and American ambassidors requesting protection!

What a joke the hearing was. Nobody even asked Hill who gave the stand-down order. Incredible.

Earth Daze: Overcoming Environmental Hysteria

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice
Politico Magazine, by Rich Lowry    Original Article

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

Shoot Down a ´Government Drone´

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

Let’s say you got into politics running for office as a Democrat. You hate Rupert Murdoch and Fox News and the Wall Street Journal, and you really, really hate Bill Kristol. You despise bankers and got set up in activism by a group working on behalf of “the working class” and complaining: “Every day the rich tighten the chains . . . . They close the factories, the mills, the mines, and ship our jobs overseas.” You’re part of a group that endorses the Mearsheimer-Walt view that Israeli interests hold American foreign policy captive – a group that also wholeheartedly

The U.S. must stand behind
its security obligations
Washington Post, by Michael Chertoff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:09:09 AM     Post Reply
On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. — Mayor Julián Castro of San Antonio faced off in a televised debate on Tuesday against a Republican candidate for Texas lieutenant governor, even though Mr. Castro, officially anyway, is not running for anything at all. “Sometimes I get impatient,” Mr. Castro said on a recent afternoon here. “And I figure I have nothing else going on, so I might as well.” The mayor was joking, up to a point. Ever since he became the first Latino to give a Democratic National Convention keynote address in 2012, he and his identical twin brother, Representative Joaquin Castro, the Texas Democrat

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. 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. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

White babies just 15 months old show racial

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
