Following on their meeting with UN Ambassador Susan Rice, Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John McCain (R-AZ), and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) released a statement bashing her performance and stating that President Obama had serious questions to answer about Rice’s statements in the aftermath of the Benghazi terrorist attacks that resulted in the deaths of four Americans. The text of the statement: We respectfully disagree with the White House’s statement today that ‘there are no unanswered questions’ about Ambassador Rice’s September 16 Sunday show appearances and the talking points she used.
We have three stories now. Clapper, the FBI and the CIA did it. Meanwhile the locus in quo has never been properly investigated. The administration won´t release the photo´s of the situation room. If we knew who was there and who wasn´t it would be invaluable. There would be liaison officers present representing various agencies, it would be nice to talk to them. And the purported terrorist mastermind is sitting in a downtown Benghazi hotel sipping Orange frappes without a care in the world. Mindboggling.
Nothing is going to come of this. America is not the country it once was that held people accountable for their actions, including the president and his administration. This is the most corrupt administration in the history of America.
IF Obama did give the order to save the Ambassador and military attache and Seals there MUST be a written order...SHOW IT...Just SHOW THE ORDER...LIAR
Report exactly WHERE was Obama at the time of the attack???...7 hours...
Why was Obama running missiles and armaments through Turkey as a conduit and into Syria ???
Why was the Turkish counsel there in Benghazi???
30,000 Missing missiles and Manpads launchers,,,WHY??? Is this Fast and Furious II Missile Running??? Why was the KNOWN Arms Dealer ship at Benghazi´s port??? This is traitorous SEDITION is the president is arms running...And if to as thought an enemy, Al Qaeda, of the USA?? We have a traitor in the WH...
Ambassador Stevens was raped as reported because the USA stood by and let our supported rebel forces rape Kaddaffi...PAYBACK by Russia...
Is this a proxy war with Russia...it would seem so, as Russia is angered with our turn over of their allies Libya and now in process Syria, to the Muslim Brotherhood...
Was Russia sending us a message on Election Day with RUSSIAN NUCLEAR SUBMARINES off our East Coast.???
Who told those Seals to light themselves up with laser so as to light themselves up to draw fire....only to get murdered...Something they would never have done ... and ONLY did if they had been told that Drone above was giving them cover...and was there to draw out and kill the enemy
Republicans need to do a Google search on the meaning of beating a dead horse..Getting the truth on Benghazi or spending cuts in the fiscal cliff are two big examples. Obama won with both these issues on the political map,meaning people don´t care about either.
Why is consumer confidence suddenly at a 5 year high? Supposedly it´s because the jobs picture is getting brighter.Sorry but I don´t buy that explanation,it´s pure propaganda to convince people the economy is getting better.We´re still seeing 365-400,000 people getting pink slips a week.
If consumer confidence is getting better,it has to be among Obama voters who see no interruption in their flow of government benefits.
If the jobs picture is getting brighter as this conclusion purports,then why are left wing groups clamoring for more unemployment extensions?
An honest and forthright (I can dream) senator---as opposed to the preening McVain or the rookie being told not to spoil her political future---would tell the American people that the story being told re: Benghazi is a tissue of lies; and that O´s administration is a house of cards, a den of thieves and a nest of traitors.
This show is a "razzle/dazzle" move by Washington DC politicians....
The pubbies are talking tough -- and verbally smacking obama -- but it´s all been worked out and this b@ich will be the sec of state even after she and gen clark told bubba clinton NOT to kill osama back when bubba was in charge. That cost 3,000 Americans lives on 9/11. They are all the same....
Look, I hate to be this way, but the only way to get this country to begin to care about Benghazi is to have all four families call a news conference and demand Obama come clean. Without that, nothing will happen. Zip. Zero. Nada.
It is shocking that there is not ONE moral member in Congress of the democrat persuasion. If I was a loved one of one of the victims, I would be out there talking to anyone who would listen. I know they have broken hearts, but I would want to expose those who allowed him to die and refused to send help. I would take this battle on, for the HONOR of my loved one, and the HONOR of my country. They died for it, was it in vain?
I don´t see this as throwing in the towel YET! They are soft as Charmin, but they have no backing by the MSM or the courts and must tread softly. I´m not sure these "investigators(?)" are smart enough to have laid down a long term plan, but if they keep the pressure on, eventually the truth will come out and hussein will be Nixon II.
We hear about the four Americans killed on a daily basis which was due to a most despicable act of cowardice by the CIC, or was it? But these deaths go far beyond the deaths of four Americans. There were thirty or more others that this administration was willing to sacrifice, or maybe did sacrifice. What happened to them. Did they even get out and if so how? Where are they and why haven´t these "investigators(?)" gone looking for their testimony.
To even consider that OUR Nobel winning commander in chief (far from it in reality) was willing to throw almost forty Americans on the pyre of self-agrandizement is beyond comprehension except within the framework of "siding with the muslims." He´s proven he´s not only willing but has in fact has done so with Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, and now Gaza and Syria. He needs to be holed up in Gitmo with no chance of legal representation.
Has anyone (hello, anyone?) questioned the so-called 30 folks that escaped the Benghazi consulate while 4 Americans were murdered? Do these 30 even exist or was it all theater for the masses, like Hillary dodging bullets in Afghanistan? Crickets.
I doubt we will ever know all there is to know about this, about F & F, about all the capers of this most corrupt and reckless Administration in the history of the world.
And I think we are whistling Dixie if we honestly expect anyone in our government to even attempt to get to the bottom of it. They are great at kicking the can and doing photo ops, and are worthless to America and to the American people.
Neither do I think it is important to know WHY the Benghazi slaughter was deliberately allowed to happen. It was preventable, yet it happened. That´s all we need to know really.
What I DO think is important is that we get this poseur out of office, start hanging some people out to dry, and that includes incompetent and worthless Republicans as well as ALL the Democrats in office.
Officials prefer to just move along rather than get entangled in real problems. If we want solutions, we had best look to ourselves for those solutions as they will come from no other place.
I suggest we de-fund our worthless, but very dangerous federal government. It has bankrupted the nation, is responsible for countless deaths, has removed more freedoms than most people even realized they had.
The buggy whip wore out its welcome and necessity, and so has the US government. If we people are too helpless to manage our own lives then let the states look after us - NOT the US government.
A LARGE segment of the American public are beginning to seriously upset me.
Exactly #10. There was no consulate in Benghazi, it was a CIA operational headquarters to move Libyan weapons to Al Qaida. Which was to be move said weapons to Syria. Russia put a hit on the Benghazi operation. Thus dead CIA Seals and an ambassador. And of course now the cover up for weapons running to terrorists.
#10 thanks for the Canada Free Press article. Why is it that we have to read the truth from papers and websites not in the USA? I think Doug Hagmann has asked questions which finally are getting to the bottom of what/why Benghazi happened.
Regardless, though, the fact that four Americans were murdered when all it would have taken to save them would have been to deploy our own nearby forces. Obama and his administration are guilty as hell of treason and murder - aka "high crimes and misdemeanors". Can anyone say Impeachment time?
Obama won´t answer any questions about anything. They will have to get to the truth without him. However, we all know the truth. It was Obama that gave the stand down order. It was Obama that let his employees die because of his failed Middle East policy. Hillary won´t tell the truth either. It will be a slow process, but we will find someone that will talk.
I´m waiting for that dynamic patriot who will arise and lead the producers of this country in a Gandhi-like protest, say next April 15. We will refuse to mail in tax returns, refuse to patronize known Obama supporters, including TV, and doctors could refuse to care for any but life/death emergencies. Our demands? Immediate criminal investigation of exec and congressional branches plus D of J. The investigators would be the governors of all 50 states with powers to subpoena try and convict. Whoops. Was that a drone I hear beeping ?overhead?
Boy, that didn´t take long, did it? The Washington Post announced Wednesday that MSNBC´s Rachel Maddow would be writing a column for the paper once a month, and on Thursday, there was her first piece. Any guesses on the topic? Bashing George. W. Bush, of course. What would you expect from this unapologetic liberal shill? Titled "How George W. Bush Failed The GOP" - clever, isn´t she? - the piece rips the former President for not leaving behind members of his administration that have subsequently amounted to anything in the political arena:In the eight years of the George W. Bush
Following news that Maroon 5 frontman and People-anointed Sexiest Man Alive Adam Levine will be stumping for Healthcare.gov, National Review editor Jonah Goldberg figured there must be a couple of people who will be swooned into health care coverage by the scribe of “Moves Like Jagger.” “It might work at the margins,” Goldberg told Fox News. “I am sure there some truly unfortunate souls out there who think the lead singer from Maroon 5 is the guy to take health care advice from.” Goldberg said the bigger issue for the Obama administration was not getting young people to sign up
If there’s one off-the-cuff remark that will follow Chris Matthews for the rest of his career as a pundit, it has to be time time in 2008 when he said, in reference to a speech by then-candidate Barack Obama, “I felt this thrill going up my leg.” It’s the one line for which conservatives love to make fun of him most, and he knows it. During a Wednesday evening debate over divisions within the Republican Party, Matthews chose to voluntarily reference the infamous quote and defend the sentiment behind it. Republican strategist Steve Schmidt was denouncing the current state of
Obama is running from Obamacare to his zone of strength and core value: class warfare. Democrats are geniuses at playing on group identity. When I ask friends what principles lead them to vote Democrat, it is a hard question for them. After a baffled pause, I often hear this: "Republicans are the party of the rich." It is said as if that is all that needs to be said: not like me, exploiting people, bad for the country. Not my party. As the liberal Howard Dean says, many Republicans "have never made an honest living in their lives." Democrats have
Senate Republicans on Wednesday launched an around-the-clock talkathon over some of President Obama´s nominees in the wake of a new, Democratic-driven rules change last month that weakened the GOP´s ability to block nominations. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., threatened to hold the Senate in session through the night to deal with 11 nominations, most of them non-controversial. Republicans retain the power to use up all procedural time, including post-cloture debate time on nominees. If Republicans refuse to give up their allotted debate time, the Senate could be in session continuously into Saturday -- or longer. "If we have to
CHICAGO-- Chicago will soon host a sculpture that’s both inspired and angered viewers around the world, reports CBS Chicago. CBS affiliate station WBBM Newsradio’s John Cody reports “Homeless Jesus” will be installed Friday outside the Chicago offices of Catholic Charities. Canadian sculptor Tim Schmalz said Pope Francis has blessed the statue, but two cathedrals have rejected his bronze image of Jesus on a park bench. “Imagine a life-sized figure totally wrapped up in a blanket, or a sleeping bag, with the only thing visible the feet of the figure,” he said. “If you look in the feet, you actually see
Alabama kicker Cade Foster has received a lot of hate since missing three field goal attempts in his team’s stunning loss to Auburn, but he has at least one fan: former President George W. Bush. The 43rd president reportedly sent Foster a personalized letter encouraging him to press on through life’s challenges. “Dear Cade (#43), life has its setbacks. I know! However, you will be a stronger human with time. I wish you all the best. Sincerely, another 43, George Bush,” the letter reads. Foster posted a picture of the letter to his Twitter account Wednesday. Foster was inundated with
The Hollywood Reporter gathered some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry Wednesday morning at the Beverly Hills Hotel for the 22nd annual Women in Entertainment breakfast to honor the Power 100 and present Oprah Winfrey with a leadership award named for former Paramount and 20th Century Fox exec Sherry Lansing. Lansing took the stage at the packed event, sponsored by Lifetime, Gucci, Samsung Galaxy, Audi, Roberto Coin, Guggenheim, City National Bank, the Gersh Agency, Loyola Marymount University and the Entertainment Industry Foundation, to speak about Winfrey, whom she called one of her personal idols. "You conduct your life in
President Barack Obama reportedly plans to nominate Stanley Fischer to be the next vice chairman of the Federal Reserve. The former Bank of Israel Chief would take over for Janet Yellen when she leaves the post to become Fed chairwoman. Fischer, a dual-citizen of the U.S. and Israel, served as the head of Israel’s central bank for eight-years before stepping down on June 30 of this year. Later this summer, the economist sung the Fed’s praises on the Charlie Rose Show. “The United States managed — although it is hard for Americans to believe — managed the crisis better than
Walking out of a private conference room beneath the Capitol Building on Tuesday, Republican House members looked tired. Not the typical "I-had-a-bad-night’s-sleep" tired but something deeper — a look of battle exhaustion. Unlike past meetings in the same place during periods of fever-pitched warfare with Democrats, it appeared — for the first time in a long time — the fire in their bellies that drove them to shut down the government and risk federal default, was, for now, no longer evident. These Republicans had just been briefed on a new, bipartisan budget blueprint that would establish long-term federal government spending
MIAMI- George Zimmerman will not face domestic violence charges because his girlfriend did not wish to pursue the case and there was scant evidence of a crime, a state prosecutor said Wednesday. Samantha Scheibe´s decision not to cooperate and the lack of other corroborating evidence would have made the case difficult to prove, State Attorney Phil Archer in Seminole County said in a statement. "There is no reasonable likelihood of a successful prosecution," Archer said. Zimmerman, 30, had faced charges of aggravated assault, battery and criminal mischief following a Nov. 18 confrontation at the central Florida house he shared with
In a contentious exchange with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius over her repeated claims that mandated health services do not raise costs for consumers in the form of higher insurance premiums, Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) waved his hand in apparent surrender and said to her, “It’s like talking to the Republic of Korea or something.” Shimkus apparently was referring to North Korea, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, where the Communist rulers there spout pro-government propaganda that is then glowingly reported by state-run media.(Video)
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
