Republicans expect Clinton’s
clarity on Benghazi

Washington Times, by Shaun Waterman and Guy Taylor

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/21/2013 10:17:05 PM

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton likely will face tough questions about the deadly Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya — including how the U.S. ambassador went missing for several hours during the assault — when she meets Wednesday with the House and Senate foreign affairs committees. The appearance, likely to be her last before Congress, will cap her time as secretary of state by revisiting one of the most bitterly contested and controversial episodes of her tenure

Her Fraudulency will likely succumb to the vapors, and be excused until 2014, sometime.

"Republicans expect Clinton’s clarity on Benghazi"

this is a joke, right?

have we already forgotten this article?

"Essay: Blizzard of Lies
By WILLIAM SAFIRE
Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady -- a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation -- is a congenital liar."

clarity?
not from Hillary.

This is going to be America´s last shot at this corrupt and incompetent pig until the ´16 campaign. She has a four decade history of scandal for which she has NEVER had to answer. This was a cover- up of the first order and if the Repubs. Want to see this leftist slug and her sex pervert criminal husband follow the destructive ba$tard now in office, all they have to do is play kissy face with Madam.
If she is not taken out now she gets a free ride to 2016.

Poster 2, Heart Surgeon, thank you for posting the congenital liar piece. While an apt description, it didn´t stop Hillary as senator, an almost presidential candidate or as SoS. This is because she is a progressive Dem, and absolutely nothing stops a progressive Dem other than another progressive Dem.

However, if HRC is congenital, then her mate must be a genital liar. "I did not have sex with that woman."

This is a waste of taxpayer´s money if there are no indictments, firings or resignations coming out of this. If the Republicans are clever and ruthless enough this could be an opportunity to take her out as far as any 2016 aspirations she may possess.

Hillary will do a pathetic tap dance for the committee and will exit the old stage left into oblivion.
She will not be the 2016 nominee unless she can find an expert black face artist and become a male figure while losing 25 years off her resume´.
If she doesn´t come clean it will make my sister weep because she expects saint Hillary to blow the whistle this week and allow us to wave Obe bye bye.

There is a certain entertainment value to watching these people lie and obfuscate.I´m watching for her to deny she ever saw a request from Stevens for more security.

She already halfway blamed Stevens a while back by saying he knew the risk he was taking going in there.

This was an out and out assassination of Stevens by his own government for a reason we don´t know and that will never come out in this inquiry.

A corrupt citizenry demands corrupt leaders. It´s time to accept that we have a corrupt citizenry that seems to ignore obvious corruption in the Clinton´s and Obama.

We are now led by the corrupt and the watchdog is the corrupted media.

It´s over folks. Better batten down the hatches. It´s going to be everyone for themselves.

Like most commenters before me, the headline reads like a sick joke.

The notion that Republicans expect anything other than what everyone else expects, which is a pant-load of time-killing nonresponsive answers, can´t recalling, indignant posturing, and outright lying is laughable. Also laughable is the fantasy that Republicans will do anything other than furiously raise their eyebrows, angrily straighten their papers, or abruptly turn to staff and dispatch them on urgent missions.

This thing could get the popcorn-worthy Iran-Contra treatment, but I would bet the farm that the Republicans flinch before Herself does. Not even close. They will go in thinking they have to be tough, but not too tough on a "respected" SoS, and a woman with high approvals and aspirations. She will go in hacked off that she even has to deal with these vermin. She wins, hands down.

The stress of the inquisition will do her in. If the GOP questions are too tough, she´ll develop a latent migraine, maybe faint from residual concussion effects, or cry.

She will be so sad these 4 Americans lost their lives, she will have been busy with solving the rest of the world´s problems (read: eating their food, drinking their beer, and dancing their dances), and there will be a conspiracy in place to make her look bad.

I could write this stuff.

The progressives will declare that the Republicans are escalating the war on women when they ask Mrs. Clinton anything that makes her uncomfortable. I would like to see a woman ask the hard questions and brook no evasive answers on the SOS´s part. However, the left will cry foul if any question pushes too hard. Mrs. Clinton wanted the job, hold her accountable for her decisions. Men died because of her incompetence. Their families deserve answers.

They don´t refer to the State dept. as Foggy Bottom for nothing you know. Barack Obama has a better chance of becoming a fiscal conservative than we have in getting the open and honest truth from a Clinton. Unless she can do it in such a way that it knocks Obama off his perch without hurting her. I suspect that is why it has taken so long for her testimony.

She will forcefully accept responsibility, while admitting no fault of her own. She won´t show any signs of weakness as she has her ambitions to think about here and the problem we have is that we have a group up there that will let it go with little truth to come out. They have admitted they have met with her behind closed doors, they have all the intelligence they are gonna get, so this is just for show for us poor saps who thought maybe there would be justice for those poor 4 victims.

The question is does she think she´s stylin´ with those new glasses or is she actually attempting to look like Kim Jong Il?

At least Tammy Wynette took her to the woodshed over the (not) "standing by your man" comment that time. That´s about all we´ll get. No strings she could pull to stop that tongue lashing.

She must sleep better at night if those Benghazi bodies really were cremated. CYA? Done. In regards to the drones she can honestly say, "no muslims were harmed in the making of this video". George Soros would approve.

This is a first, lying for Obie. Most of her previous, long list of lies and unsolved deaths were all done to protect her Slick Willie. Now she´s being asked to lie for the raging, vindictive, commie style person not her husband. The world knows she can only lie, or die. The good news, she has all of mainstream media backing up her every lie. Diane Sawyer, Brian Williams, Steve Pelley, the whole army of limousine news actors will back up her every evasive, Slick Hilary words. Whatever we see will have been rehearsed, all of it "just for show", another socialist nail in the coffin of America.
There will not be one questioner to actually pursue the truth. RINO Boehner crooks are also afraid for their lives and the safety of their families. It isn´t just Hilary; they all fear for their lives.

i suspect the phrase she will use is not "I don´t recall", but a more lawyerly and nuanced "I have no independent recollection".

This avoids having her memory called into question, while saving her from uttering any statements that could be construed as perjury. She won´t have to comment further on any damning emails or on the record statements she has made before...it lets her skate...she does not contradict, deny, clarify nor add to the paper trail that exists...she merely states she has "no independent recollection".

It may be the pessimist in me but, if she shows up, I expect a finely-honed, well-prepared, 2016-minded, thoroughly vetted lie that almost all of the Republicans will swallow and excuse away with a "not credible but, we will give her the benefit of the doubt" speech thereafter.

What is the best, or reliable, concise reference to the Hillary “I don’t remember” testimonies? I can’t find a concise one on Google or Wikipedia. Perhaps it has been thinned with time. One of my correspondents says that she never uttered those words, or anything like them, not one time, ever.

Earlier this month, another Republican senator, Bob Corker of Tennessee, who is the new ranking member of the Foreign Relations Committee in the Democrat-controlled Senate, suggested that Mrs. Clinton is eager to try to address unanswered questions.
“I actually sense — especially in talking to her chief [of staff] just in the last few days — that she’s anxious to want to come up and testify on Benghazi,” he told MSNBC.


The State Dept. says she will be prepared to answer any questions. (With the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God???)

I´d like for you to be wrong, #7, but it would be a surprise if you are wrong.

If you have not yet heard, Brandeis University has rescinded its offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-born activist whose work has focused on the barbaric misogyny rampant in Islamic societies like the one in which she was raised—and whose efforts to call attention to them as a legislator in the Netherlands led to a political crisis there and her eventual flight to the United States. Given that it only takes a Google search to find out everything one would need to know about her, including the controversial aspects of her views, it is disgustingly laughable

When Chief Justice John Roberts rewrote ObamaCare from the bench in order to save it, most of the ramifications were immediately apparent. But there was one aspect of the stunt that as a member of the Supreme Court Roberts should have been sensitive to: precedent. Having caved to a public intimidation campaign from the president and his congressional allies (as well as the media) Roberts signaled that the way to get a conservative justice to discard his better judgment and rule against constitutional law was to impugn the court’s reputation in the public square.

Sen. Mark Begich has said repeatedly that he thinks President Obama is wrong about a host of policies, whether on oil drilling, the military or the environment. Begich also has made it perfectly clear that he has no interest in having his fellow Democrat out to his home state of Alaska, saying earlier this year that he doesn’t “care to have him campaign for me.” But that doesn’t mean he’s not looking for the president’s help. Begich has in fact submitted a long wish list to the Obama administration for agency decisions that he thinks would boost his reelection chances.

First, House Majority Leader Tom DeLay resigned in disgrace after he was charged with violating campaign finance laws and money laundering. Then, Rep.

The resignation of a Silicon Valley executive who opposed gay marriage and refused to recant has sparked an online fight among gays about whether proponents of same-sex marriage are now going too far in trying to marginalize their opponents socially and economically. The announcement by popular Web browser Mozilla Firefox that co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich was stepping down after two weeks on the job for a 2008 contribution has sparked furious debate over civil rights, privacy and corporate responsibility. A leading gay blogger has accused the movement of displaying the same intolerance activists accuse their opponents of practicing, while

On its present course, the Supreme Court will ultimately overrule its 1976 decision in Buckley v. Valeo, the landmark case upholding campaign finance “reform” legislation. It can’t come too soon, because Buckley expressly ignored the First Amendment’s injunction that “Congress shall make no law .?.?. abridging the freedom of speech.” Instead of free speech, we now have regulated speech that has ensnarled elections in a web of bizarre and opaque rules. Last week, in McCutcheon et al. v. Federal Election Commission, the court began edging away from Buckley by striking down one of its limits on free speech. The details

In 2008, Barack Obama and Brendan Eich both were against gay marriage. Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional. Barack Obama inexplicably remains, as of this writing, president of the United States of America, but Mr. Eich has just been forced out as CEO

Oregon State University, disdaining responsibility for trashing distribution boxes that were intended for a politically conservative student newspaper, has still paid $1,000 plus $100,000 in legal fees after a former student, William Rogers, filed suit against them. The lawsuit, filed in 2009 by supporters of the newspaper The Liberty, contended that the university president and other school officials permitted the official campus newspaper access to distribution bins, but school officials removed the bins for The Liberty. The suit alleged that school officials confiscated distribution bins for The Liberty and tossed them onto a trash heap. The bins, which contained copies

House Republicans have scheduled a vote next week to hold Lois G. Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify about her role in the Internal Revenue Service’s tea party targeting scandal, setting up a major battle over constitutional rights versus Congress‘ ability to oversee the government. Rep. Darrell E. Issa, the House’s top investigator, said Thursday that as a senior official at the center of the IRS targeting, Ms. Lerner will either talk or face penalties for refusing to help the committee get to the bottom of who orchestrated the targeting and what the motives were. “Ms. Lerner’s

When has a secretary of state been involved in so many disastrous, self-initiated negotiations? First, John Kerry convenes — against all advice and holding no cards — Geneva negotiations to resolve the Syria conflict and supposedly remove Bashar al-Assad from power. The talks collapse in acrimony and confusion. Kerry’s response? A second Geneva conference that — surprise! — breaks up in acrimony and confusion. Then, even as Russian special forces are taking over Crimea, Kerry goes chasing after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov — first to Paris, then Rome, then London — offering a diplomatic “offramp.” Lavrov shrugs him off.

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged

Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir of her time in the Obama Administration will be released on June 10, according to a website for the book. The book, which will be published by Simon & Shuster, will cover key moments during her time as Secretary of State, a position she held from 2009 to early 2013. Clinton also shares her thoughts on how to “navigate the challenges of the 21st century,”according to the website. It will be her second memoir after 2003´s Living History. The publisher has not yet released a title or a design of the book’s sleeve, though its contents are highly anticipated in the period leading up to the 2016 Presidential election.
