WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is leaving office with a slap at critics of the Obama administration´s handling of the September attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya. She told The Associated Press that critics of the administration´s handling of the attack don´t live in an "evidence-based world" and their refusal to "accept the facts" is unfortunate and regrettable for the political system. In her last one-on-one interview before she steps down on Friday, Clinton told the AP that the attack in Benghazi was the low point of her time as America´s top diplomat.
Comments: "critics of the administration´s handling of the attack don´t live in an "evidence-based world"?? Really? It is outrageous how they insult our intelligence.

To the left whatever dribble and drool drips from the elites mouths are the only "facts" anyone should ever be allowed to know. Carefully chosen and tailored, PR and focus group tested facts are the only ones that count.
The corrolary is , of course, that any other "fact" affered by anyone else is a "lie" or the current favorite: "not reality based". whatever that means.
The only fact (lie) Hillary wants us to believe is it wasn´t her fault. It seems no extreme left wing member of the Corrupt Party is ever at fault when disaster happens. She has yet to figure out a lie to blame "W" for it.
The Clinton´s ability to stay on the national political stage is the best barometer as to the sorry condition of our citizens. Her 60 % approval rating shows us we have 60% ignorant and/or gullible citizens. Democrats know their politics has to be oriented toward useful idiots. The mistake Republicans make is failing in that regard.
Truth and ethics have no political rewards in a depraved and ignorant nation.
Here´s the facts madam-by any measure we are significantly weaker in the world because of YOU and others in the administration. You have zero to offer the american people short of having another 4-8 of more Alinsky style marxism. The only difference between her and Obama are her oregans of procreation---maybe.
The hag still lies, cries, curses, writes lying books that no one reads and still has not washed her hair or lost weight. I think she is a mess who should go home and stay there and not be seen heard, felt or smelled. She and slick willy are an ideal couple. She can still have him.
The problem is we ARE aware of the facts and they are UNACCEPTABLE ! We want to hear from the people who were saved and who are being kept in hiding by the Administration ( however that can be possible ). A lot of this does NOT make sense, even to those of us who are not conspiracy theorists. On the surface, it appears that illegal transactions may have been taking place, or at the very least, clandestine activities between the USA and (WHO ?). The Administration does not even state that nothing can be made public because of National security issues, which would in itself tell us a lot. We want to know at the very least was an FBI safe-house involved and were we "running guns" to insurgents ( lets call them that ). We want to know what was going on in that region, if it can be made public, not that the Secy of State is a know-nothing, see-nothing, do-nothing ,hear-nothing, incompetent official doing the President´s bidding, who in fact wants to be the next President, and who is certainly made for the job, loving to fly-fly-fly without accomplishment.
Here are the facts, hillary. You traveled to 114 countries during your tenure as S of S, almost one million miles. And as the benghazi hearings proved, you didn´t put anyone in charge of day to day matters at State. You refused to handle any matter related to embassy security, deferring, you said, to the professionals. And they were incompetent. And after the deaths of the four people in benghazi, you refused to talk to survivors, because you ´didn´t want to interfere with the FBI investigation.´ That is absolute nonsense. And you were not involved in selecting susan rice for the sunday shows, were not involved in the talking points, were curiously disconnected from your own agency. Shame on you. You continue to be a disgrace to the U.S., Hillary.
Piaps and the rest of the Democraps live in a world of illusion, deflection, lies and inuendos, characters carefully crafted using perception and emotion.
There is no truth in them, none, they say only what they want the people to hear, falsly accuse those that disagree, and keep the people as stupid as posible so they must rely on perception and emotion to make their choices. Unfortunately, its working.
I thought she couldn´t comment because she was waiting for "all" the facts to "come out." Of course, one NEVER knows all the facts, especially when Hillary and her lying husband apply their much-practiced tactics of stall, obfuscate, mislead, outright lie, intimidate, bully, threaten, blackmail, coerce, terrorize, and arkancide.
Evidence based world. We have been given none because it really doesn´t make any difference. It is obvious no one was in charge of security at the consulate. Hillary and Barack were more than willing to sacrifice the ambassador and anyone else who died to keep the two of them from being criticized, especially just before the election.
The cover up insures no evidence ever comes to light. Four years from now we will know no more than we do now about what happened and why our government left our people to die.
At least Barack and Hillary made sure al Quaeda got our weapons so they could kill more Americans and westerners. Mission accomplished.
#1, there isn´t enough paper on which to scribble her lies big and capacious enough to cover that butt.
As in other matters, it is up to us to get the truth about her tenure out there. They are pushing the fiction that she has been brilliant and utterly successful. (the image in my mind is of her, swigging the booze)
Again, the people have been deliberately kept stupid. All they hear is this buzz buzz buzz and pumped-up (faux) excitement about Hillary! --to get people talking about Hillary!, the next potus.
(those eye glasses look like the ones she wore as a radical in her college+ days. What up wid dat?)
Someone i know was "talking" about Hillary! until i asked her WHY people think she´s so popular, what had she done? She knew absolutely nothing. Then i said, what about poor old Joe Biden? She said, "Who´s Joe Biden?" no kidding. i thought she was. she wasn´t.
And Carney comes out today, saying the attack at our Turkish embassy was "clearly terrorist", narry a mention of some outrageous video.
This morning on Fox & Friends, Brian Kilmeade rattled off a series of catastrophic failures of Hillary! (and hence BO regime), beginning with the failure to "reset" relations with Russia. This is what we need to be ready to do, otherwise Hillary! will be expected to be potus, and needn´t raise a dime.
January 8, 1996 Essay: Blizzard of Lies By WILLIAM SAFIRE "Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady -- a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation -- is a congenital liar."
and how can forget her utterly made up description of landing in Bosnia with Chelsea in tow for a good will mission
"I remember landing under sniper fire," she said in Washington on Monday. "There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."...Her account was ridiculed by ABC News as "like a scene from Saving Private Ryan".
This begs the issue, why did Chelsea go along with the lie?
Please people, can we stop dwelling on just how massive and lumpy hillary´s butt is. I really don´t care that it is a reality based fact. If I had a buttox maximus the size of hillary´s, I would be quite self consious about it. Perhaps her pathological lieing is a form of over compensation for her deformity.
Let´s all try to be compassionate. Seriously, wouldn´t you like to have a butt like that full of nickels.
In his book “The Audacity of Hope,” President Barack Obama praised the Constitution and the federalism it enshrines, including the “three coequal” branches of government and checks on power that “prevent tyranny by either the few or the many." “The outlines of Madison’s constitutional architecture are so familiar that even schoolchildren can recite them: not only rule of law and representative government, not just a bill of rights, but also the separation of the national government into three coequal branches, a bicameral Congress, and a concept of federalism that preserved authority in state governments, all of it designed to diffuse
White House press secretary Jay Carney said that they’re leaving the investigation of an American teacher shot in Benghazi up to the Libyans. The Libya Herald reported that chemistry teacher Ronnie Smith, 33, was running on Dubai Street in Benghazi’s Digadosta district when he was shot multiple times. According to witnesses, Smith was approached by a black SUV that “drove up to him and retreated several times before shots were fired from the vehicle.” Smith had lived in Benghazi for 13 months with his wife and their 2-year old while teaching at Benghazi International School. His wife had flown back
President Obama directed federal agencies and the military to nearly triple renewable energy consumption by the end of the decade, setting a target of getting 20 percent of electricity from renewable sources. The move, which comes through executive order, is the latest in a series of administrative efforts the White House has employed to address climate change through curbing greenhouse gas emissions. And focusing on the federal government -- the nation´s largest energy user -- could have a significant impact. "Meeting this renewable energy goal will reduce pollution in our communities, promote American energy independence, and support homegrown energy produced by American
The President´s problems are not restricted to millennials -- a majority of whom support throwing him out of office. A new Gallup poll finds that his job approval among Hispanics has fallen 23% in the last year. What´s more, white women (especially blue collar white women) have turned sharply against ObamaCare. From the National Journal, reporting on polling provided to it from the Kaiser Family Foundation: According to Kaiser, 40 percent of college-educated white women hold a “very unfavorable” view of the law—10 points higher than a month ago. An additional 10 percent view the law “somewhat unfavorably.” A month
This has to be the lamest spin to date in defense of Obama´s most famous mega-lie, and it comes from an appropriately lame source. Cringe-worthy: "What he said was true. If you want to keep the insurance you have, you can keep it. The problem is, we did not put the bill into effect that way." I´m speechless. The promise Obama made was true, except for the fact that the law he signed didn´t allow it to be kept. Incredible. Reid´s bigger point -- and I use the term loosely -- is that because insurance plans are renewed on an
A group of young ballerinas rehearsing for “The Nutcracker” was kicked out of American University’s theatre so MSNBC host Chris Matthews could interview President Obama on Thursday. American University admitted they dumped Ballet Petite’s two final dress rehearsals so they could host MSNBC’s “Hardball College Tour.” Matthews will be presiding over a one-hour conversation with the man he’s likened to President Kennedy’s last brother, President Abraham Lincoln and Jesus Christ. The ballet company had been scheduled to rehearse on Wednesday and Thursday in preparation for their opening performance on Sunday.
The Internal Revenue Service quietly proposed new regulations aimed at 501(c)(4) organizations during the Thanksgiving recess that Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, called "a crass political effort by the Administration to get what political advantage they can, when they can." Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations were apparently singled out by the IRS starting in 2010, and the heavy hand of government suppression of these groups may have greatly attributed to Obama´s re-election, an American Enterprise Institute study revealed in October. The Washington Post reported last week the Treasury Department said the new rules “may be
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
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
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
America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a
