State Department Preparing for
Bombshell Benghazi Revelations?

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by AWR Hawkins

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/14/2012 9:21:26 PM

This week, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice withdrew her name from consideration as the next Secretary of State, while current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton went from definitely testifying on Benghazi next week to a slightly less-certain "maybe" testifying on Benghazi next week. While Rice´s and Clinton´s respective announcements could be unrelated, it seems more than likely that they are connected. Moreover, it seems likely these developments are indicative of a State Dept that is preparing for bombshell Benghazi revelations to be released with or without Clinton´s testimony.

I see she is still wearing the phony blue contacts! Isn´t that sort of like a black person straightening their hair....or a white person pretending to be an indian. Dems are the definition of fake.

#5 I would lay odds they aren´t in the US..more like the military hospital in Germany, Landstuhl or one of those.I would bet they are on...lockdown...and the families probably has a little "visit" from the gubmint..clam up...eventually , (hopefully) truth will come out.

Hillary will delay testifying until after most of Congress has gone home for the holidays. Once the focus has gone to family and the holidays, she´ll try to sneak it all under the radar of the media.

This picture alone should eliminate Hillary from 2016.

But anyway,I wouldn´t count on any earthshaking news to come out of this review. Obama has everybody in his back pocket. Oh,there will be some measure of condemnation but nothing firing squad worthy.Rice got out because there was too much proof she was a liar.

The article seems to be mostly "could be".

i.e. inferring the motives of Rice and Clinton and what might be in a report we might never get to read.

It could be right, speculators sometimes are.

Unarmed security. US weapons in the hands of terrorists. Enough military power standing by to flatten the whole city around the compound told to "stand down." Top level of government knowing there was grave danger to US lives before and during the attack.

What can be more shocking?

Just look at that picture of her. That is one ugly ass woman! Geez already. One
has to wonder what the environment was for her to get a look on her face like
that. Maybe it was, "Who, crazy little old fish face me involved in dereliction
that got Americans murdered? Nuts! Like me!".

Don´t be so sure nothing will come of the Benghazi debacle. Bamster has three new lost battles in his quiver since his, ahem, landslide election: The Illinois overturn of concealed carry, the loss by unions in Michigan and Rice getting kicked to the curb. More is to come.

Obama and Chicago thugocracy Inc might have everything wired at the national level but they have much to be desired at the state level. They are losing again and again and again as more uninformed Americans catch on to their ways. The lost battles will add up and take their toll. That´s a good thing!

Here is what the New Media should be hammering this administration on EVERY DAY:

- Watergate saw NO ONE get killed.
- The Watergate cover-up did not HIDE 30 survivors from Congress and media questioning.
- The Media hounded the Nixon White House EVERY DAY until Nixon resigned, for the sake of the country.
- The Nixon tapes were DEMANDED and received by an Congressional investigation committee.

THEN, the New Media should show how THIS administration has lied, stonewalled, and covered-up at every turn.

Cleverly crafted CYA stories take time to write . Teams of lawyers comb through it for inconsistencies and scrub anything that shows client guilt. Only when the final draft shows Obama as a squeaky clean hero will it be released to the little people.

The place to get the ´low down´ is the Canada Free Press, Benghazi Part1, Benghazi Part2 and, best of all, the revelations in Benghazi Part 3. Know what is in there and expect nothing less when Congress sub-poena´s the perps.

Even though Hillary will not be testifing, she wants to state for the record that she can´t understand that it is so easy for her to forget about Benghazi (due to her head injury) why can´t everyone else just forget about Benghazi as well.

"The bigger the front, the bigger the behind." With this rule as a guide, i would say that the cover-up is huge. Was there anyone who believed the cover story with Susan Rice? Send out someone who can testify she knew nothing? "That´s my story, and I´m stickin´ to it."
Hillary is the bigger smelling , rotten fish, as we´ve known since her cookie baking days. Obama is the master baiter in this fishy story, and his tales all are based on lies.
Since the republican´s think they have been already defeated for 2016, perhaps they could do something altruistic for the country now, and expose the game that´s being played on their innocent countrymen.

Mrs Clinton´s purported ailments are short-term. Congress should make it clear that they expect her to testify WHENEVER she can make the time. The newscast on radio stated she will be "working the phones". If she can take that action, then she can "answer the questions" before a Congressional committee.
It is blatantly obvious that Mrs Clinton has been delaying testifying since the attack
occurred. Just issue a subpoena and stop the
nonsense that is under way. Otherwise next week her Christmas tree will fall on her and wipe out her memory. I am not disputing the fact that she may have in fact have had a virus, may have fallen, and may have incurred a concussion. Therefore, a week´s delay may be justified But, that is where it should stop. Otherwise, she is purposely delaying her testimony and Congress should take the appropriate action.

Mrs. Clinton is using the oldest trick in the book to avoid testifying.

How many times have mobsters, financial shysters, or just plain criminals faked illness (the mob boss who roamed NY streets in a bathrobe, mumbling to himself, comes to mind) in order to avoid having to testify, or to stand trial?

She couldn´t remember Whitewater, the Rose Law Firm billing records, and numerous other things--but she was sharp enough to turn $1,000 into $100,000, and to be a Senator and a Secretary of State.

She will just run out the clock on testifying, and will get away with whatever she did or didn´t do vis-a-vis Benghazi.

Bilary knows insiders get killed, wacked, whenever it´s as big a death dealing cover-up as Obama´s idiotic attempt to pull off with Benghazi. She´s an
insider on this terrifying death op, that´s not a good place to be. Yeah, she´s sick already. Let´s face it, most Washington insiders are sick, real sick.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:38:34 AM     Post Reply
Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation
Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson    Original Article

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

Democrats settle on fairness

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
