Questions for Clinton in
the Benghazi hot seat

CNN, by Ashley Fantz & Jim Dougherty

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/23/2013 5:19:15 AM

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will finally take questions from members of Congress on Wednesday about the deadly terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. Lawmakers have long wanted Clinton´s full accounting of the September 11 assault that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. They also want to ask her about diplomatic security, which the State Department has since re-examined at posts located in overseas hot spots. Agency officials have acknowledged shortcomings and promised changes. Some of the toughest questions before the House Foreign Affairs Committee and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee are expected to focus

Poor little Barack Obama! Sharyl Attkisson of CBS keeps asking Wise King Barky uncomfortable questions about Benghazi, and ol´ Wise King Barky is too scared to answer! Wise King Barky even sent his spokespeople out to tell Attkisson that he won´t be answering her questions, ever!

Because that´s how brave, brave Wise King Barky rolls!

Want to make Barack wet his pants?

Ask him to tell the TRUTH.

As with ALL Democrats, the TRUTH is their greatest enemy.

1. The foxy minx will obfuscate or lie.
2. The MSM will help cover-up the foxy minx´s cover-up.
3. Republicans will throw up their hands and leave it at that.

That´s about all we can be sure about.

Very generous of CNN to include all the ´answers´ to these questions.

Just evil Republicans thwarting the honest and heroic efforts of this transformational administration.

I don´t usually krank up the margarita machine before noon but will make an exception today.
We have so little to celebrate.
We must not miss this op.

Transcript: Benghazi Hearing, House Foreign Affairs Committee:

CHAIRMAN ED ROYCE (R-CA): Welcome, Secretary Clinton. Where were you when news broke that our consulate in Benghazi was under attack?
CLINTON: Whaaaa?
CLINTON AIDE: The Secretary just returned from Mali, sir. Her hearing’s been damaged by an RPG round fired at her Humvee. [repeats question to Clinton]
CLINTON: Fatigued after an overseas trip, I suffered a fugue episode just as I arrived in the Situation Room that night, Mr. Chairman.
ROYCE: Who gave the order to ´´Stand Down´´?
CLINTON: I’m told I was unsteady on my feet and the president asked me to ´´Sit down.´´
ROYCE: Do you and the administration take responsibility for lax security at the Benghazi compound?
CLINTON: Mr. Chairman, I. . . . [sways, then falls forward, smashing her forehead on the table. Her personal physician attends her.]
DOCTOR: A fainting spell, Mr. Chairman. Slight concussion, perhaps. She insists on continuing.
CLINTON: [appearing dazed] You were asking about Ben Gazarra’s problem with Social Security Administration?
ROYCE: Let’s move on. Did a YouTube video provoke the attack?
CLINTON: No. It was the result of overmedication.
ROYCE: Why did Susan Rice cover for you on the Sunday talk shows?
CLINTON: Rice loses moisture if it isn’t covered while it simmers, Mr. Chairman.
ROYCE: Madame Secretary, I ask again: who is ultimately responsible for the Benghazi debacle?
CLINTON: That was a political station, not a church, sir. There was no tabernacle there. Anyway, I take full responsibility for whatever it is that happened I don’t remember. Now, excuse me or I’ll feint [sic] again.
ROYCE: But, but . . . where was the president when. . . ?
CLINTON: Whaaaa?

I believe Secretary Clinton should be grilled until medium well done. Make sure the coals are good and hot. To avoid food poisoning, she should be probed inside to make sure she gets to the correct temperature.

She deserves the "willing suspension of disbelief" treatment she gave General Petreas. Of course there is no chance the GOP won´t tee up softballs for her. By the way, piaps plagerized that line she sniped at the General.

What she has to say will not matter. Just read the comments at the end of the article. She will redo her facelift , get a new hairstyle, and be elected President by the same idiots that voted for Obama.

I have already read that she is not going to answer all of their questions. It is a matter of "national security" don´tcha know. She is a consumate liar and will wiggle her way out of this. She has had three months to prepare. I hope the Republicans hit her hard and fast and do not give her time to think but they won´t. The MSM will call them meanies no matter what.

There were four supposed firings including the obese Charlene Lamb, who decided after consulting with others, not to grant sullivan´s request for more security, opting instead to train locals for security, along with kennedy, whatever he was, other than the person who whispered answers to Charlene, plus two others.
Were they actually fired?? Or not??

Be assured of two things:

1. The Republicans WILL ask the tough questions.

and

2. Madame VRWC will appear to answer but will be on auto-obfuscation pilot.

Oh, one more:
3. The Republicans will be ´´out of time´´ to follow-up.

Uh oh, one more!
4. She´ll have made her appearance, the Committees will be done with her, and John Effin can come in tomorrow, free and clear of this mess, while Her Hillness goes home on Bill´s arm to start building her 2016 campaign.

They have heard from her in closed hearings, so most of this is for show anyway. But it would still be nice to see the GOP members give it to her anyway. They have waited a long time for this opportunity, and there should be no deference given to her.
As far as Ms Lamb and others.. they were fired, but then hired on in another area.. so no one lost their job permanently anyway...well, other than Chris Stevens and the other 3 brave heros. Pathetic! Heads should have rolled from this and if they dont get Obama in on the grilling end, I give up on them all.

Which reminds me.

What´s the over/under on how many "I don´t recall" and its variants that Hillary! will give today.

And will it surpass the number of those answers she gave in her Grand Jury testimony over Whitewater/Cattle Futures/how Rose Law Firm billing records turned up in her private quarters.

#25 - that´s what I want to know - where are the survivors - why no big "People" magazine with stories from those survivors -

oh, now she is talking so emotionally about putting her arm around the shoulders of those who lost loved ones in Benghazi -

I keep hanging on to that old saying, "the wheels of justice grind exceedingly slow, yet they grind exceedingly fine".

Trying to analyze the coke-bottle glasses. She evidently can´t put her contacts in, but for what reason? I didn´t know a blood clot or a concussion would present a problem in wearing contacts. The only thing I can think of would be an eye infection. Or is this a subtle hint to the Congressional committees that you don´t punch someone wearing glasses - especially big thick ones. Or is this another subtle way of hiding? The picture on Drudge makes her look like the head secretary in a law office.

Where is Benghazi?

It wasn´t clear!

Why didn´t you make a call to some of those who escaped?

It wasn´t clear who they were.

When they escaped do you know where they went?

It wasn´t clear.

How many were there who es....?

It wasn´t clear. But, all the investigations confirm that what wasn´t clear was a fantastic job by the IC! It takes time to get help to these incidents.

Help was within hours. Why were they asked to stand down?

It wasn´t clear!!!

Can´t watch this pretentious witch just like I can´t listen to King Barry . . . . Is anyone even getting near to asking her about the phoney Youtube video cover- up or is that too much to hope for?
Anyone?

Why don´t they ask about why she has not discussed Ambassador Stevens and Obama giving arms to the terrorist.

Can Rick Perry Get A Second
Chance With GOP Voters In 2016
Daily Beast, by Myra Adams    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 3/29/2014 6:04:15 AM     Post Reply
After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

How the coercion coalition is imposing

Oral arguments at the Supreme Court on Tuesday in the Conestoga Wood Specialties and Hobby Lobby case showed bureaucrats and special interest groups led by the abortion lobby are willing to coerce you to participate in anything they say is a “right,” especially abortion. The government´s view is so extreme that Justice Anthony Kennedy was inspired to ask whether the government´s theory means a business “could be forced in principle to pay for abortions,” and that families in business “just don´t have any standing to vindicate [their] religious rights.” “You’re right,” declared U.S. Solicitor General Donald Verrilli. This should be a shocking

At Obama-Putin Phone Call, A Whole Lot

While we’ll never know exactly how the phone call went, if you read how the Obama administration described the conversation between Putin and Obama, and how the Russians described it, you’d think they were two completely different phone calls. Here’s the readout from the Obama admin: President Obama underscored to President Putin that the United States continues to support a diplomatic path in close consultation with the Government of Ukraine and in support of the Ukrainian people with the aim of de-escalation of the crisis. President Obama made clear that this remains possible only if Russia pulls back its troops and does

Frank Langella was a young actor in 1961 when Bunny Mellon walked into a Cape Cod, Mass., summer playhouse looking for her daughter, Eliza. The two chatted briefly and a few days later he was invited to a small lunch at her home. There were eight people: Bunny and her husband, Paul; Langella; Eliza; Noel Coward; Adele Astaire and ... old friends of the hosts President John F. Kennedy and first lady Jacqueline Kennedy.(Snip)If it was a treat to see Midler sing, it was shocking for many Mellon loyalists to see Edwards stroll across the cobblestones toward the church.

Fast cars, luxury yachts, international five-star resorts, top-shelf liquor and fine china from Bloomingdale’s — this sounds like a rap song, but this is the life of some members of Congress. For example, Rep. Rob Andrews (D-NJ) was exposed in a 60 Minutes investigation for spending leadership PAC money on the items listed above. And, my guess: he isn’t alone. We, the taxpayers, shouldn’t accept this behavior; we must fight it. I will do my part in ending this corruption by championing the following reforms when elected to Congress: Ban immediate family members from registering as lobbyists.

Vote fraud as ‘payback time’

Melowese Richardson is the poster girl for vote fraud. The Ohio poll worker was sentenced last July to five years in prison after being convicted of voting twice in the 2012 election and voting three times — in 2008, 2011 and 2012 — in the name of her sister, in a coma since 2003, according to USA Today. This might be below Chicago graveyard standards, but it’s still impressive. Ms. Richardson has become a heroine to the left, which is working with its legal arm — the U.S. Justice Department — to kill voter photo-ID laws in order to ensure that creative

The 900

The Spartans needed only 300 men to hold off tens of thousands of Persians and their allies at Thermopylae. To chitchat with his fellow democratic leaders of the G-7 this week in Europe, Barack Obama required 900, including a small air force and private army. Given how very little is accomplished at any of these diplomatic gatherings (and in particular this one, which came up with a most mealy-mouthed denunciation of Russia’s invasion of Crimea), the fact that our still-global celebrity president feels the need for an entourage befitting an Ottoman Sultan is a perfect example of government decadence in

Keep America kosher

Attn: Kosher butchers. You know that contraceptive mandate now before the Supreme Court? Turns out it may affect your freedom to keep kashrut — not to mention your living. At least, that is the opinion of the solicitor general of the United States, Donald Verrilli. He’s arguing the case for the Obama administration. And the claim is that for-profit corporations such as Hobby Lobby have no right to make free-exercise claims under the First Amendment. Justice Samuel Alito raised the issue of kosher and halal slaughterhouses during the oral arguments. It hasn’t generated much press attention, but it made for a fascinating exchange.

Wal-Mart sues Visa for $5

Wal-Mart Stores Inc this week sued Visa Inc for $5 billion, accusing the credit and debit card network of excessively high card swipe fees, several months after the retailer opted out of a class action settlement between merchants and Visa and MasterCard Inc. Visa declined to comment on the suit, filed Tuesday in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas, where Wal-Mart is headquartered. Visa and other card networks charge retailers fees, called swipe fees or interchange fees, each time a shopper uses a debit or credit card to pay. In December, a federal judge in Brooklyn,

Newt Gingrich´s Plan to

Within a year, nine out of 10 Americans could be dead. And whatever causes the national apocalypse—be it North Korean malice or the whims of the sun—the downfall will ultimately be our own fault. That´s the fear of Newt Gingrich and other members of a high-profile coalition who are convinced that our fragile electrical grid could be wiped out at any moment. Their concern? Electromagnetic pulses, the short bursts of energy—caused by anything from a nuclear blast to a solar flare—that can wreak havoc on electrical systems on a massive scale. And the coalition believes it´s coming soon. "I think we´re running out

A South Dakota judge on Thursday gave the green light to one of the most high-stakes defamation lawsuits in U.S. history. Judge Cheryle Gering denied ABC News’ motion to dismiss the $1.2 billion dollar lawsuit filed against it by Beef Products, Inc. (BPI) in the wake of a series of reports that BPI alleges led people to believe its product, known as lean finely textured beef, is unsafe, and ignited an industry backlash. The case is now headed toward a trial where ABC personalities Diane Sawyer and Jim Avila will take the witness stand before a South Dakota jury, defending the

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough interviewed Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer, asking him about the charge by Majority Leader Harry Reid that the conservative philanthropist David Koch is “un-American.” Scarborough asked Schumer whether he associated himself with Reid’s statement. Senator Schumer began his answer by ducking and weaving, shifting attention from Reid’s claim to Schumer’s disagreement with the Kochs’ preferred policies. “But, senator, can’t we have a disagreement about how charity is funded without calling somebody un-American?” Scarborough countered. He continued to press Schumer to answer his question. “Do you think David Koch is un-American?” Schumer finally said, “The commercials he runs are not part of

Via America Rising and the IJR, is this the key that finally unlocks the enigma of Harry Reid, tinpot demagogue? Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act. Those remarks got heavy coverage in conservative media, and even got picked up at WaPo. You don’t toss a grenade that powerful without choosing your

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

All 17 Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have called on Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to end the “partisan” investigation into the Benghazi attack “and begin focusing instead on conducting responsible oversight to implement constructive reforms.” The Dems, led by ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), charged that the probe “has been characterized by wild and unsubstantiated political accusations that turn out to be completely inaccurate.” They proceeded to outline those instances in the five-page letter. “Continuing this reckless pattern of launching wholly unfounded accusations on national television — and racking up more and more Pinocchios in the process —

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors.

Please, try not to let what I’m about to tell you destroy your faith in the integrity of the national Democratic Party. Right now, a crime wave is sweeping the nation, and everyone in this out-of-control mob has a D after their names, even if most of the media are loath to report it. If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

London - England’s public health agency says two people have caught tuberculosis from a pet cat, the first time the bacterial disease has been documented to spread from cat to human. In a report published Thursday, Public Health England said it concluded TB samples taken from the cat and from two people in contact with the animal were “indistinguishable” and that the cat was considered to be “the likely source of infection.” Between December 2012 and last April, veterinarians identified TB in nine pet cats in Berkshire and Hampshire, west of London. Public Health England said the two people who caught TB were recovering and said the risk

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.
