(Video) Amb. Rice and Sec.
Clinton cat fight continues

Washington Times, by Kerry Picket

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/3/2012 9:29:20 PM

The Chicago Sun Times´s report on Friday saying that if Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had to choose between U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice and Senator John Kerry, Massachusetts Democrat, to succeed her, Clinton would likely opt for Senator Kerry: “Hillary is not close to Rice, who is tough — but is not the friendliest person,” said a top White House source. “And Hillary’s brief comment recently that Rice had done ‘a great job’ was considered underwhelming and tepid,” the source added. Apparently, if this report is accurate, Clinton and Rice have not mended fences since Clinton

Amazing that no one is embarrassed that these appointed ´statespersons´ are following in the legacies of Dulles, Franklin, Goldberg, Rusk, et al. What a disgrace!

All others with white skin who are against Susan Rice are being labeled as racists.
.... Why isn´t Hillary considered racist?
.... Where is the Black Caucus condemnation of Hillary´s anti-Rice stance?
.... Why hasn´t Old Media accused Hillary of disliking Rice because she has black skin?

Hmmmmmmmm?

So Hillary is just another stuffed shirt, as if we didn´t know all along. Seems any moment she is actually relied on to come up with some initiative, ping her internal compass, show the way ahead, she´s out the window. Later, she returns and tries to take credit for something she didn´t do, because she never would have thought of it to begin with. She and Barack, therefore, are a match made in heaven.
This is all indicative of someone with no convictions, no morality, no real leadership skills. Ditto Obama. Useless phonies-all of them.

#4, completely agree. Wouldn´t it be a novel concept to have someone in the State Department who is actually pro-American. The whole world knows that we are weak. That is why either one of these harridans is perfect to continue Obama´s foreign policy. Can you even imagine our standing in the world when Obama leaves office? I am sure we will be the most respected nation on the planet. /s

I disagree that Rice is a nitwit. She´s brilliant and understands the situation. She shows a considerable lack of judgement and conviction of American core values by aligning with the squatter. As for her dislike of Piaps? She has pulled no punches. I have a feeling that Piaps is responsible for setting her up on Benghazi which indicates a serious lack of insight into the evils of DC politics.

"Rice explained that Obama believes the security of the American people could only be achieved if the well being of people in other parts of the world were satisfied too." (That means kowtowing to terrorists with whom there is no satisfying. Can´t/won´t happen until totally subdued.)

As for Piaps: "we don´t know what she thinks or how she would approach it."

As for SoS? Not good. Wrongheaded!

Then there´s Kerry! Decisions, decisions!

When your foreign policy team are all lifetime members of the liberal Hate Americal Movement, it doesn´t really matter who´s Sec. of State. Although either Rice or Kerry would be a real step down from Hilary, which says something right there, doesn´t it?

As for "catfight", let´s not insult cats. Two dim scorpions in a jar would be a better metaphor.

This outcome was pre-ordained when Susan Rice was picked by Obama. There was never any love between Rice and Hillary. Rice was the patsy in Benghazi. She was the only one that sold her soul for the SOS position.

The focus should be on Obama. He told us to come after him. Guess he knew that no one would.

I´m sure this is known but seems not widely discussed -- Susan Rice´s husband is white, a Canadian (by birth), a lumber baron and recently the producer of George Stephanopoulos´s Sunday program. Their wealth includes his family´s fortune, extensive resources (oil, gas, tar sands,etc)and other unacceptably green holdings.

Since he´s white and has anything to do with Susan, the CBC must, amongst themselves, find the husband utterly racist, to their consternation.

Everyone loves a good Cat Fight.

Consider: once Hillary leaves Washington, we will bid a fond adieu to the last Clinton in Washington. It will be bittersweet, because although we will finally be rid of the Hillbilly Pond Scum, we will also miss the Hillbilly Soap Opera.

No one does a better Scandal than the Clintons.

If John Kerry is appointed, Hillary comes home and runs for his seat. If Rice is appointed, Hillary has no place to go where she can be independent of the administration, and remain in office and able to get her mug in the papers every day.

In fact McCain said he would join forces with Reid to end the fillibuster...just to get at Rand Pauls opposition to NDAA, as it stands. Yeah right such good republicans....excuse me while I vomit.

We all know that Hill & Bill have stolen millions but I would also like to know why Rice has most of her money invested out of the U.S. Of course, our inept Repubs forgot to mention this a couple of weeks ago when this fact could have changed some minds.

The Roots of CAIR’s
Intimidation Campaign
National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/13/2014 10:12:32 PM     Post Reply
Author’s Note: This week, capitulating to Islamic-supremacist agitation led by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Brandeis University reneged on its announced plan to present an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the heroic human-rights activist. In my 2010 book, The Grand Jihad, I devoted a chapter to the origins and purposes of CAIR, its roots in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas-support network, and its aim to silence critics of Islamic supremacism. In light of the continuing success of this campaign — despite a federal terrorism-financing prosecution that exposed CAIR’s unsavory background — it is worth revisiting that history. What follows

Sen. Rand Paul says potential White House rival Jeb Bush was inarticulate when he described immigrants who come to the United States illegally as committing an "act of love." In an interview that aired Sunday, Paul said that those immigrants "are not bad people" but added the United States "can´t invite the whole world" inside its borders. Paul, the Kentucky Republican eyeing a 2016 campaign, says Bush should have kept his focus on controlling the U.S. borders. Bush, a former Florida governor, says the GOP cannot demonize immigrants and should show compassion. He described illegal immigration as an "act of love" by people

Despite the testimony of GM CEO Mary Barra that the company "acted without hesitation" to address the ignition switch problems that served as the basis for the latest recall of millions of vehicles, emails show that GM failed to address product problems, some of which Barra herself seemed fully aware of, at least as far back as 2011. The company, often derided as "Government Motors" because of the billions of tax dollars infused into it by President Obama, has been under fire this month because of ignition switch problems linked to dozens of crashes and perhaps as many as 13 deaths.

SAN DIEGO, CA -- Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke via satellite to attendees of San Diego’s Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on Apr. 11, just days after canceling plans to attend in person. Two protest groups gathered outside the San Diego Convention Center for the conference, but for two different reasons. One group of 10-15 demonstrators, promoting a single-payer healthcare system, stood across from the Convention Center. While playing a recording of the folk tune “Medicare for All,” the group spoke to passing pedestrians for approximately two hours. The other protest, directly in front of the Convention Center,

The Justice Department says a 29-foot war memorial cross on a San Diego mountain is not an unconstitutional promotion of Christianity and should remain on federal property. The Obama administration said an appeals court ruling declaring the cross on Mount Soledad a violation of the constitutional separation of church and state undermined an act of Congress and conflicted with recent Supreme Court decisions. But, in a filing Monday to the nation´s highest court, it said an appeal should first be considered by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals because there is no imminent risk that the cross is removed.

Death by solar farms: 71 species of birds

A new report by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service finds that solar facilities in California are acting like “mega traps” that kill and injure birds. As a result, “entire food chains” are being disrupted. USFWS’s National Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory studied three solar farms in Southern California: Desert Sunlight, Genesis Solar and Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS). Two-hundred and thirty-three different birds from 71 species were found over the course of a two-year study. The three main causes of death were: 1. Solar flux: Exposure to temperatures over 800 degrees F. 2. Impact (or blunt force) trauma:

President Obama on Friday formally nominated Sylvia Mathews Burwell to head the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) following the botched resignation of Kathleen Sebelius. Burwell served in several positions under the Bill Clinton administration, including as a deputy aide to then-budget director Jack Lew. In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators

Climate change is one of the issues at the top of President Barack Obama’s agenda, and now it’s getting big budget treatment in Hollywood, at least by documentary standards. A nine-part series called “Years of Living Dangerously” will debut this Sunday evening on Showtime–emphasizing stories “from the front lines” of climate change impact. The first episode, now available online, stars actors Harrison Ford and Don Cheadle, two of the series’ correspondents. “It’s the biggest story out there,” said James Cameron, an executive producer of the series, in an interview.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today.

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it.
