Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pushed back Wednesday on the suggestion that Sept. 11 emails implicating an Al Qaeda-tied group in the Libya consulate attack were proof of terrorist involvement, saying their claims of responsibility on Facebook and Twitter were not "evidence." (snip) She suggested those producing the emails were "cherrypicking" documentation, as the White House noted the organization reportedly had denied responsibility in other settings. "I think within a few hours that organization itself claimed that it had not been responsible. Neither should be taken as fact," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said.
Comments: The Queen of Chutzpah has issued her proclamation on the matter. What baloney ! Going into Libya was her idea in the first place and I'm convinced the video cover-up was a Clinton production as well. 0bama & Co. are just as culpible, but this entire Libyan debacle has Madam's hoove prints all over it.
Remember her testimony is always "I can't remember". No where else to go from there but prove her fingerprints are all over this. She has the experience to cover up anything. Even murder, which is pretty much what happened to innocent people in Libya.
Oh yeah? Well, Madam, what about the live feed from the drone being watched by the State Dept and the White House for hours DURING the attack? And no military aid was sent? No effort made to save our people? Our ambassador?
Still wanna keep up the Big Lie? We are not stupid. You are in this up to your double chins along with your body-woman Huma and The Won.
It's maddening to consider obama may actually benefit from this scandal. Last night Shoen and Caddell expressed belief that obama might carry out October surprise military strike in Libya. Caddell was cynical over the prospect. Shoen not so much. Caddell says GOP better get ready because obama stands to gain from use of military for political purposes.
TPerhaps the best explanation, and Benghazi is the perfect time for it, is that they are all so deep into each other for lies and crimes, that one CANNOT bust the other. Here was an opportunity for the long lying sow to shake up O's White House, her long awaited moment to be able to come out to her whole Hilary loving world and break the truth. But NO, they are all in debt to each other, just like all of lying greedy Congress, and they are estopped (great legal word) from being truthful to the outside world. Not only that, they have the full support of the Diane Sawyers, old rotting decadently wealthy limo TV media, to cover for all of them. There simply is no chance for an embittered Hilary, loser to Obama, to ever speak out with the truth, even if she wanted to do so. It's the Beltway Gsng of Liars and it's all starting to come to a brutally honest Breitbartian ending as news lie after news lie is countered by New Media honesty. First, it was with the pathological liar, Slick Willie Now she's being caught in her very own lies.
Impeach the witch. It will end her political career forever just with the details that come out whether or not the Senate convicts, which it won't do with so many Democrats even if they don't have a majority.
Oh no you DON'T Hillary! YOU don't get to wiggle out of this like your HUSBAND did...because THIS time someone DIED!
YOUR department GOT those emails and the security teams were only 3 hours (3 HOURS!) away...and you were aware of what was going on for 7 hours!
You didn't want to send in support because it would look like you didn't have a handle on things in that country...so you waited hoping the terrorists would back down. Then AFTER you found out what happened, you LIED...to the country and WORSE to the FAMILY members of the dead!
You are DESPICABLE...and so is the President for backing you up!
Cattle futures, Whitewater billing records, travelgate, FBI files, "landing under enemy fire", active role in negotiating Catholic/Protestant cease-fire in Northern Ireland, will not run for President... Just a few of hundreds of cases in which Hillary's version of the facts and the truth have been so far apart that they weren't even in the same time zone - or in some cases - the same hemisphere.
Communist LIAR....she was hiding the gun running ..Missile running...Fast and Furious II..where she and Obama are arming America's enemies...
That evil piece of garbage belongs in prison..
To watch as as those 2 Seals ..heroes, were murdered is beyond repugnant...Who hired those two men only eleven days earlier ...it was a set up...Her claim of responsibility is only more Kabuki...Liars....She needs Obama in office to run in '16...trust nothing she says..or does...Communist traitors!!
Madam Broomstick, you lied to cover up your boss's lies, you have fallen on your own sword for nothing, and the implication of you lying severely hurts your chances to replace this tyrant with yourself.
You should have flown away from this mess and tried to keep your nose out of it, but the embassies are part of the state department, so madam YOU LIE
First time I saw Hilliary - clapping to "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow", I knew she was an evil, bitter, menacing, angry person. She continues to prove she is an evil, bitter, menacing, angry person.
Did we ever discover the names on those FBI files? Must have been powerful info - because nothing ever sticks to Ms. Rodham.
Seeing Hillary lately, with her hair tugged back pulling her fleshy face with it puts me in mind of Charles Laughton playing Captain Bligh. Then when you add to the picture a bulging blue pantsuit as she waddles down a flight of White House steps I can hear Laughton barking, "Mistah Christian, I'll teach these men the meaning of discipline."
Memories, memories, July 1993, this ain't the first time Bilary exerted influence to cover up death. When their closest friend advisor VINCENT FOSTER, was beginning to weaken and was suddenly found "suicided" in a lonely Park, it was herself that midnight raided Foster's office with her staff, before it was security taped. And it was Slick Willie, who immediatley prophesized, "We'll never learn how this happened". And some of you may remember there is a widely distributed list that is lovingly titled "THE FRIENDS OF BILL", that describes well over 100 friends of Bill and Hilary, who suffered sudden, oft times, violent deaths. A figure that would stagger, boggle the mind of, any actuarial.
Put out the lawn chair, set the alarm and maybe bring something to wet your whistle while you gaze into the nighttime sky — the year´s best shooting star show has started. August´s annual Perseids meteor shower peaks Sunday and Monday, promising perhaps 70 meteors an hour those evenings. "The Perseids are the good ones," says meteorite expert Bill Cooke of NASA´s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala. The Perseids take their name from their apparent origin in the constellation Perseus, the hero of ancient Greek myth born from a shower
It’s August 2013. What better time to talk about 2016? At this point, Hillary Rodham Clinton has been awarded the Democratic nomination virtually by default and declared the clear favorite to win the general election against her as yet unknown Republican opponent. That’s an overstatement, of course, but just barely. Make no mistake. The former secretary of state, former senator from New York and former first lady is in a commanding position at this very early stage. She stands far above all the others in her party who might seek its nomination.
Two British teenage girls were being treated for burns at a London hospital on Saturday after acid was hurled in their faces in the Indian Ocean island of Zanzibar.(snip)Tanzania is predominantly Muslim, and the attack happened at the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan as people were beginning to celebrate the Eid al-Fitr holiday. Some of the island´s more conservative Muslims object to foreign tourists who wear revealing clothes, as well as bars selling alcohol. One of the girls had posted on her Twitter page that she had been hit by a Muslim woman
OHIO: Muslims across the US celebrated Eid on the same day to everyone’s joy and relief. Mosques overflowed with happy worshippers who stood as one ummah in prayer and thanksgiving, enjoying the mild weather, treats and spiritually motivating sermons of the day. US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle also sent their warmest greetings to Muslims celebrating Eid Al-Fitr around the world, calling it "part of a great tapestry of America´s many traditions."
CHARLOTTE, NC - Local civil rights group True Healing Under God (T.H.U.G.) in collaboration with Temple Church International is holding a countywide workshop this weekend. The self-development workshop is for black boys ages 8-16. It will focus on character improvement, godly principles, discipline, respect, "pulling up their pants", and learning more about the Trayvon Martin case. T.H.U.G. says the concept is called "Save Our Sons" and mothers around the county have responded. The group hopes to reach 100 black males.
ISLAMABAD,: A suicide bomber was killed by security guards while trying to blow himself up at Ali Masjid in Barakahu on Friday. According to an Islamabad police spokesman, the security guard spotted the suicide bomber at the entrance of the Masjid and shot him dead instantly. He said the bomber started firing indiscriminately as he wanted to enter the mosque, where people were leaving after offering Friday prayers. The guard Ameen Hussain Shah, who was injured in the firing, later died at Government Polyclinic Hospital. Police officials arrived on the scene and cordoned off the area around the mosque.
America´s foreign policy has gone into a tailspin. Almost every major initiative from the Obama administration has run into sharp, sometimes embarrassing, reverses. The U.S. looks weak and confused on the global stage. This might come as happy news to some opponents of the administration who enjoy seeing Barack Obama fail, but it shouldn´t. America´s failure in international strategy is a disaster-in-the-making for its allies and for the people who see the U.S. model of liberal democracy as one worth emulating in their own nations.
George Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watch volunteer acquitted in the murder of unarmed black Florida teen Trayvon Martin, sought to buy a bulletproof vest and a home-security system while out on $1 million bond, according to records released Thursday. The Seminole County, Fla., Sheriff´s Office released a 57-page log obtained by USA TODAY that recorded Zimmerman´s activity last year and this year while he was connected to a GPS system via ankle monitor. Zimmerman was court-ordered to GPS monitoring as a condition of his pre-trial release, said Kim Cannaday, public information officer of the Seminole County Sheriff´s Office.
Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a telegram on Thursday to his old sparring partner, former U.S. President George W. Bush, wishing him a quick recovery from heart surgery. It may have been coincidence that the Kremlin released details of the telegram a day after Barack Obama pulled out of a planned summit with Putin, but little is left to chance in Russian politics. The warm words to the man who once said he looked Putin in the eye and got a "sense of his soul" highlighted how different the relationship
Users have one option: Slap her for speaking. Although several women´s rights organizations have condemned the idea, an anti-Hillary super PAC has refused to remove "Slap Hillary" from their website, allowing individuals to virtually hit the former secretary of state with a click. The Hillary Project posted the clickable graphic earlier this week in which an animated Hillary Clinton stands outside the White House, and users can click "speak" or "slap," cueing a graphic hand to whack her across the face. The game had been on the internet since 2000.
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”
Joe Arpaio is notoriously tough on his Tent City prisoners. And now he seems to be going Marie Antoinette on them. Over the weekend, the sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona celebrated the 20th anniversary of the controversial facility in Phoenix , giving inmates access to cake, coffee, unrestricted television, movie rentals, candy cigarettes, and copies of Good Housekeeping and Woman’s Day. According to a press release put out the by the sheriff’s office, Arpaio authorized the so-called “Retro Day” for the 1,000 inmates in the open air jail a treat.
While media mogul Oprah Winfrey has been promoting her new film, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” she revealed she was a recent victim of profiling while shopping in a store in Zurich.(Snip)“I was in Zurich the other day at a store, whose name I will not mention,” Winfrey said on “Entertainment Tonight,” “and I didn’t have my eyelashes on, but I was in full Oprah Winfrey gear…but obviously, ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ is not shown in Zurich. So this doesn’t happen to me unless somebody obviously doesn’t know that it’s me.” Winfrey went on to explain that she was in Zurich for Tina Turner’s wedding,
Appearing on This Week With George Stephanopoulos, Republican Congressman Louie Gohmert battled not only the Democratic panelists but also conservative pundit George Will over the wisdom of shutting down the government to prevent Obamacare funding. Gohmert strongly condemned President Barack Obama’s argument at Friday’s news conference that the GOP’s “holy grail” was enying millions of people health insurance. “That’s a false narrative,” Gohmert said. “He says we’re trying to keep people from having health care. That’s just not true. That is an absolute, blatant lie. We’re not trying to keep anybody from getting health care.
Nobody tells Oprah she can´t afford a handbag. Oprah Winfrey is one of the richest entertainers in the world, thanks to her willdly successful 25-season run on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and her latest media foray with the newly revitalized Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). The entertainer earned an estimated $77 million from June 2012 to June 2013 alone, according to Forbes, but she says she still experiences racism because she is African American. Take this latest incident in Switzerland, where "The Butler" star went to attend the nuptials of good friend and singer Tina Turner last month.
During his Wednesday appearance on Jay Leno´s "Tonight Show,´ President Obama made three factual gaffes; one of them involved the claim that cities not found along the Gulf of Mexico are. Were Obama a Republican, these gaffes would have led news coverage for the next forty-eight hours. Not only did most of the media ignore or downplay these gaffes; the Associated Press went so far as to cover one of them up. In its coverage Thursday, rather than point out the president´s geographical error, the wire service made it look as though no error was made.
The Washington Post is a legend in the minds of the Washington elite, so its financial decline has caused quiet panic. As NPR media reporter David Folkenflik put it, “You think of stories like the Pentagon Papers, Watergate, these are all stories where The Washington Post led the nation’s understanding, the world’s understanding of some major issues.” Outside the liberal media, you wonder how long Post fans can wallow in their Nixon-crumbling polyester “glory days” in the early 1970s. But nostalgia ruled as the Graham family sold the Post to Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon.com.
Ames, Iowa — Donald Trump delivered a blistering attack on Mitt Romney’s campaign today. “I don’t know what the hell happened with his campaign,” Trump said in a speech at The Family Leader Summit. “I just don’t get it. That was an election that couldn’t have been lost.” “Every single state that they asked me to go or do some phone calls or some television, we won in the primaries,” Trump remarked. But he also criticized what the campaign had initially wanted him to say in robocalls. “They gave me this most pathetic thing to say. I said,
The taxpayer-supported Missouri State Fair is getting a lot of negative publicity in social media Sunday following a report of a shameful stunt that occurred Saturday night in Sedalia. (Snip) Basically, a clown wearing a mask of Obama came out during the bull riding event. The crowd was asked if it wanted to see Obama “run down by a bull. Things got worse from there." Things got worse from there, which doesn’t surprise me, given the anti-Obama feeling among many fairgoers from rural Missouri, where Obama lost to Mitt Romney (at least 60-40 percent in much of outlying parts of state)
During a press conference yesterday, President Obama revealed the existence of a sealed indictment in the Benghazi attacks in Libya on September 11, 2012, leaving some experts questioning whether the president broke the law. Federal law states that ´no person may disclose [a sealed] indictment´s existence,´ and that doing so may be ´punished as a contempt of court,´ a charge that carries a minimum sentence of six months prison. The announcement came as a surprise to some insiders, as the existence of a sealed indictment has not been publicly confirmed or denied by law enforcement or
During an hour-long deep dive into the growing use of food stamps in America, Fox News highlighted “the new face of food stamps.” That new face is a pina colada-sipping, lobster-loving lothario named Jason Greenslate. Greenslate, a 29-year-old La Jolla California surfer and musician who sings that he does not want a “motherfucking job” and has “fuck no” guilt about living on $200 of what he calls “free money ” — or what the government called Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Benefits — while he avoids a job to hang out on the beach, sing and chase women.
President Obama took his case for ending the sequester to hundreds of disabled veterans Saturday, saying he protected their benefits from the “reckless” cuts to the federal budget but suggesting next year might be different. “It’s hurting our military. I made it clear that your veteran’s benefits are exempt from this year’s sequester,” the president said to the applause of hundreds at the Disabled American Veterans´ convention in Orlando, Fla. “But I want to tell you going forward the best way to protect the VA care you have earned is to get rid of this sequester altogether.”
Rooms have to be found for dozens of Secret Service agents, someone has to carry a selection of presidential basketballs, and of course the family dog needs his own state-of-the-art aircraft. Arriving in the idyllic coastal retreat of Martha´s Vineyard in Massachusetts, Mr Obama left behind him in Washington DC high profile debates over the budget, government surveillance and his health care reforms. Instead, he will spend the next eight days playing golf, going to the beach, and buying books from the Bunch of Grapes bookstore.
Eydie Gorme, a popular nightclub and television singer as a solo act and as a team with her husband, Steve Lawrence, has died. She was 84. Gorme, who also had a huge solo hit in 1963 with "Blame it on the Bossa Nova," died Saturday at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas following a brief, undisclosed illness, said her publicist, Howard Bragman. Gorme was a successful band singer and nightclub entertainer when she was invited to join the cast of Steve Allen´s local New York television show in 1953. She sang solos and also did duets and comedy skits with Lawrence, a rising young singer who had joined
