Sec. Clinton´s Concussion Raises More
Questions About Health, Benghazi

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by Tony Lee

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/17/2012 1:31:09 AM

When the State Department revealed on Saturday that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had fainted last week and suffered a concussion due to a stomach virus, the announcement left more questions than answers regarding Clinton´s health. (Snip) This is the second time Clinton will not be able to answer key questions about Libya because of her health. Susan Rice, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, said Clinton was first asked to go on the Sunday shows after terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi but was too worn down to do so. Rice ultimately went on the Sunday shows in Clinton's

Comments:
This is a great question. Is there really a far more sinister reason for PIAPS to be hiding from the Benghazigate Hearings? Would she wilt under the harsh lights of the congressional room? Will they ever be televised live on C-SPAN? And, why is Ollie North not being heard from on this gun-to-rebels [al Qaeda] debacle?

This reminds me of school i.e. suddenly getting sick to avoid some big assignment.

Hillary REALLY doesn´t want to testify....too much to hide apparently.

Either she´s avoiding having to claim the 5th 100 times or she´s in rehab for being an alcoholic.

Why would I not be surprised if she had an excuse verification note from a Dr. Ukulele?

PIAPS is a congenital liar, woefully unqualified for the position she holds, similar to the rest of this administration. Even if the coward testfies, she will give one of her usual two answers to every question: (1) "I don´t remember", or (2) a complete fabrication.

There is no such thing as a "stomach virus". Gastro upset is almost always food poisoning; a bacterial attack. It is also fairly self-limiting. Why doesn´t our fawning press say that?

She only needs to stonewall until she´s replaced by Kerry. Then she will say she took responsibility, its moot, she´s a private citizen and so let´s all move on.

Republicans should return in kind and stonewall Kerry nomination and not confirm him unless and until GreasyLocks testifies before Congress on Benghazi. But as usual, that would require the Republicans to have some stones.

Hmmm It sounds like Hillary is about to suffer the same amnesia that she had several years back when she couldn´t find some records related to White Water. Those of course turned up in the White House living quarters after the heat died down.

Isn´t it interesting that she didn´t check into any medical facilities. Actual concussions are usually considered to be fairly significant health issues when they are real. She must have overlooked that fact when she came up with this excuse.

While we musn´t underestimate the menace to our health that stomach flu-related concussions poses, do you think Hillary can be called to show up and testify, say, on the seventh day after the creation of the excuse? Check out Darren Jonescu´s excellent commentary at American Thinker on the pathogens that may have brought on her illness.

Hillary is first and foremost a lawyer and knows very well the high cost of committing perjury before Congress.
She wants so badly to avoid accountability for this mess that she is throwing away her chance to be president by throwing the "weak and fragile woman" card.
This should embolden the house investigators to know that she is hiding something really big, and the pursuit will be worth their efforts. Ignore the "house leadership" and go for the gold, Trey Gowdy!

I don´t quite agree with #6 in re PIAPS being a "congenital" liar. In two different jobs I had two real congenital liars working for me. Both guys would lie to exaggerate a story, when the truth would have sufficed.

I believe that PIAPS is an artful liar, meaning to me that she lies when the truth would give the listener a picture of her that does not fit her self image.

Methinks she was telling the truth when she told Baba Wawa that she does not plan to run for President again. Jeez, she´ll be 70 in 2016. Let the hag retire in peace, after what she has put us through.

Good article Mr. Lee. But there is a big lie in it. "Susan Rice, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, said Clinton was first asked to go on the Sunday shows after terrorists attacked the U.S. ´consulate´ in Benghazi but was too worn down to do so."
There was NO consulate in Benghazi. It was a CIA operations center.
You can´t demonstrate against that....so they called it a consulate. Knowing they were lying.

Yes yes, everyone is still fascinated with my girl. But there are others who deserve their turn. I tell you what. Maybe you should just take a big bunch of them down with you.

The sad fact is that it won´t matter even if she does testify and spill the beans that there was a cover-up to avoid election damage to Obama.

My guess is that, like the inebriated captain of the Exxon Valdez, Hillary was not at her post, and was incapable of assuming it. My second guess is that senior Republicans in Congress know it, and are sparing her the humiliation of a pointless hearing on the eve of her departure from public life. She is being given the courtesy of a former senator. It is a kinder act than was extended to John Tower, but then again he had been nominated to SecDef.

A concussed PIAPS? The LSM will yell that she can´t testify but that this has no relevance to her ability to be POTUS.

Now if this was a republican . . . hmm. Here´s the headline: "Candidate . . . so stupid (just like all republicans) that he doesn´t know how to deal with simple flu. . . wanders around, dehydrated, and falls down and concusses himself.

If Hillary does not come clean on Benghazi, she is not fit to be POTUS, regardless of anything else. She does not have the character. We all knew this already, but this would be the "smoking gun" in any campaign. That is the calculation that she and Bill must make.

#24, you say that Hillary is not a congenital liar, because you believe
(a) that congenital liars will lie about anything and everything, even trivial things (by for example "exaggerat[ing] a story"); and
(b) Hillary only lies cleverly.

You seem to have forgotten Hillary´s "dodging snipers´ bullets in Bosnia" tall tale. If there ever was a case of "exaggerating a story," in Congressional hearings, that was it.

And how dumb was it for Hillary to make that up? It was easily checked -- and of course, the Secret Service had never allowed Hillary to be anywhere near sniper fire when she visited Bosnia as First Lady.

Some Republican fat cats are trying to coax former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush — brother and son to two former presidents — into making a bid for the White House. Democrats have been less subtle. They´ve created a "super PAC" called Ready for Hillary, which is only slightly less obvious a gesture than constructing a giant neon sign reading "Run, Hillary, Run."

Jerusalem - The Middle East peace talks verged on a breakdown Tuesday night, after President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority defied the United States and Israel by taking concrete steps to join 15 international agencies — a move to gain the benefits of statehood outside the negotiations process. The move, which appeared to catch American and Israeli officials by surprise, prompted Secretary of State John Kerry to cancel a planned return to the region on Wednesday, in which he had expected to complete an agreement extending negotiations through 2015. In that emerging deal, the United States would release an American

U.S. confirms warrantless

The Obama administration has conducted warrantless searches of Americans´ communications as part of the National Security Agency´s surveillance operations that target foreigners located outside of the U.S., the administration´s top intelligence official confirmed in a letter to Congress disclosed Tuesday. These searches were authorized by a secret surveillance court in 2011, but it was unclear until Tuesday whether any such searches on Americans had been conducted. The recent acknowledgement of warrantless searches on Americans offers more insight into U.S. government surveillance operations put in place after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The government has broadly interpreted these laws to allow for the

The High Court of Australia has given people who do not identify as male or female formal legal recognition. In a historic decision with far-reaching implications for institutions and individuals across the country, the court on Wednesday formally upheld the right of transgender person Norrie to be registered as neither a man nor a woman with the NSW registry of births, deaths and marriages. The decision is recognition by the highest court in the land that 'sex' is not binary - it is not only 'male' or 'female' - and that this should be recognised by the law and in basic legal documents.

Abbas obligated himself to refrain from such unilateral moves for international recognition during the course of the peace talks, restarted last July by US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Corruption Costs Dems
Their Supermajority in Calif.

Two years ago, California Democrats celebrated victory in a decades-long struggle to win a supermajority in the Legislature, where a two-thirds majority is required for any tax increase. It was the latest chapter in a long descent into inconsequence by California Republicans, who hold no statewide offices and party registration of only 29.3 percent of the voters. But corruption has achieved what the Republicans could not. The supermajority is now down the drain as three of the Golden State’s 27 Democratic state senators have within the past two months been convicted or indicted on charges ranging from bribery to gun-running.

Janet Yellen, Chairwoman of the Federal Reserve, surveying the state of the economy, said that even now, almost five years after the official end of the Great Recession, it remains harder for Americans to find jobs than in the midst of a typical downturn. For those who are working, wages are rising more slowly than usual. “There remains no doubt that the economy and the job market are not back to normal health,” Ms. Yellen said. “The recovery still feels like a recession to many Americans and it also looks that way in some economic statistics.” Five years, now, since the “official end” of the recession and longer than that, of course,

It’s junior year and Paul Ryan
has to pick a major

There are two very clear and very different political paths before Paul Ryan right now. 1. Down this path lies a presidential bid in 2016, a race in which the Wisconsin Republican would enter as a top-tier candidate if not, perhaps, the race´s frontrunner. 2. Down this path lies the chairmanship of the Ways and Means Committee in the 114th Congress and, eventually, a chance to be the Speaker/House Minority Leader. (Snip) But, in conversations with a variety of current and former Republican Capitol Hill aides, there´s little doubt that the Wisconsin Republican is the clear frontrunner to take the gavel in 2015 if he wants it.

Tiger Woods announced Tuesday that he will not play in this year´s Masters Tournament due to a recent surgery to alleviate a pinched nerve in his back. "After attempting to get ready for the Masters, and failing to make the necessary progress, I decided, in consultation with my doctors, to have his procedure done," Woods announced on his website. Woods had surgery on Monday in Park City, Utah and called the procedure a success. He will begin intensive rehabilitation and treatment and doctors estimate he will be able to play again in about three weeks. The Masters begins next week.

In a meeting with the heads of the five service branches in 2010, President Obama offered the leaders a choice: Support my efforts to end the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, or resign. In a video obtained by BuzzFeed via a Freedom of Information Act request, Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Robert Papp revealed that Obama was unwilling to compromise with service leaders over DADT during a meeting in 2010. “We were called into the Oval Office and President Obama looked all five service chiefs in the eye and said, ‘This is what I want to do.’ I cannot divulge everything

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied. In a Tuesday appearance on HuffPost Live to discuss outreach to African American communities,

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

5 Reasons Why Republicans
Should Say No to Jeb 2016

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Spanish historians say they have discovered what Monty Python could not – the Holy Grail, the legendary cup Jesus supposedly drank from at the Last Supper. The Spaniards – Margarita Torres and José Ortega del Río – believe the 2,000-year-old vessel is in a church in León in northern Spain. The pair spent three years studying the history of the chalice and last week published a book, “The Kings of the Grail,” making their case. The onyx chalice, they explained, was concealed within another antique vessel known as the Chalice of Doña Urruca, which is located in León’s basilica of

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Monday morning’s episide of The View ended with an unexpected surprise. During the “What’s Pop’n” segment, hosts Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd showed a scandalous clip for a recent episode of HBO’s Girls to demonstrate that “not everyone has body issues.” Then, they boldly went where no hosts of The View have gone before. “Lena, she gets press every week for being naked, we’re jumping on the bandwagon,” Shepherd told the cheering audience before asking McCarthy, “Why is my big black box so much bigger yours?” What exactly are The View producers trying to say?
