When Hillary Clinton told Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson “What difference does it make?” during today’s congressional hearing on the Benghazi attacks, she unveiled the slogan for her 2016 presidential campaign. It’s the story of her life. What difference does it make if Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary six years before he climbed Mount Everest? What difference does it make if Hillary wasn’t really under sniper fire in Bosnia? What difference does it make that tens of thousands of civilians have been killed in Syria over the past two years? Assad is, after all, a “reformer” in Hillary’s eyes.
It makes a difference because we need to know why these American men were murdered and who did it. If you had been doing your job, maybe they could have been rescued. If it had been your precious Chelsea, I just bet it would have made a difference. If you had been available to answer questions on day one, maybe you wouldn´t be in the hot seat now. If you had told the truth up front, this would all be behind us. Your lies and cover up´s are going to be your downfall.
´What difference at this point does it make´ is the mantra of Hillary´s life. Make sure to let some time pass between the embarrassing, felonious, degrading, evidence of incompetence, (insert your choice here) event and then claim ´that´s all in the past. It doesn´t matter now. Can´t we just move on?
As we all suspected, the supposed fall and claim of concussion were just props to let some time pass so the witch could claim ´that´s all in the past. What difference at this point does it make.´ You would think the pubbies in congress would have her number by now, but no. Disgusting.
IMO we are not going to get anywhere by repeatedly exposing Liberal politicians as accomplished liars. As they say - what difference does it make? To the sheeple, parasite base these lies are not deliberate untruths but psychological and ethical escape valves. You are not seeking someone else´s money, you are not taking a life, (you are) a victim of - fill in the blank - racism, sexism, homophobia, greed, the bible police etc. Connecting with, arousing and motivating the base is where the answer lies. 0bama connected with his sheeple base. Romney was unable (or unwilling) to connect with the conservative grassroots. lets hope Rubio will do better.
Im a big Rubio fan, but if his actions yesterday are any indication of how he would confront Hillary on ANYTHING in her long and evil past, I have fear for our party in 2016. He blew his chance to show a spine.
“What difference does it make?” Hillary´s obscene but incredibly accurate response will be soon become: What a difference she´ll make.
All media mention of Benghazi and Hillary ended yesterday. Does anyone really believe that the NY Times, Brian Williams , Diane Sawyer, or the AP will ever link Hillary to any lie, failure or short coming? She´s a Marxist, a rabid feminist, the business partner of Bill, and a Democrat, which makes her a subject of worship, not scorn.
From now on, its the Repubs who cut embassy security as the story. They didn´t, but neither did "Bush´s failed policies" cause the housing collapse.
Obama is a dope-smoking, lazy, racist liar that nobody really knows anything about. Biden is a plagiarist. Holder is a bigoted liar. Susan Rice is a liar. DWS is a bigger liar. The list is endless but if you hand out enough goodies paid for by other peoples´ hard work none of that stuff makes any difference. The most corrupt administration in history has this nation on the ropes and not enough people care.
What difference does it make that Hillary could not be questioned initially because she was on an important WINE TASTING trip to Australia? Similar to Obama could not comment be4cause he was on the road the very next day pumping for re-election. If the Am. public can´t see all of this and frown on it, we are lost.
Besides a semi lame Rubio, what happened to Chafetz, who was on every program known to God and man ticking off the hard questions he would ask Hillary. Cheers for Johnson and Paul!!!!!!!! It is not hard to see why we Republicans are demoralized,
In one of the most fascinating foreign policy interviews of all time, Fox News aired an unedited, lengthy and exclusive interview with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad Wednesday. The in-depth interview focused on diplomacy, chemical weapons, the death toll from the two-year-old war, the rebels’ goals, future governing and the region’s stability. Assad appeared calm, comfortable and yet delusional, talking in almost perfect English, as he consistently labeled the rebels as “terrorists,” claiming that 80 - 90% of the opposition fighting against his military was comprised of Al Qaeda supporters and other jihadists. In talking about the origins of the conflict, Assad failed to
Oh goody: Obama is having direct communications with Iran. I’m sure Assad is getting a good chuckle out of this. And no doubt it will end well. And given that Obamacare is the health care equivalent of Jimmy Carter’s energy plan—you know, the one that promised affordable and independent energy for Americans—can Obama’s “malaise” speech be long in coming? Given the historical ignorance of Obama and his speechwriting staff—“peace in our time,” the big O said in his 2nd inaugural—I doubt they even know about the malaise speech. Or if they do know about it, they’ve drunk the revisionist Kool Aid
WASHINGTON – The U.S.-Russian plan for the removal or destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons, hailed as a diplomatic breakthrough just days ago, appeared to run into trouble Wednesday as the Obama administration backed off a deadline for the Syrian government to submit a full inventory of its toxic stockpiles and facilities to international inspectors. The State Department signaled that it does not expect Syrian President Bashar Assad to produce the list within seven days, as spelled out in the framework deal that Washington and Moscow announced last weekend in Geneva. Marie Harf, a State Department spokeswoman, said Wednesday that “our goal is
House Republicans are furious with Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, for conceding that legislation to defund Obamacare would fail in the Senate, and are accusing him of surrendering the fight and undermining their strategy to effectively repeal the Affordable Care Act. “Gee, thanks for the support,” Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fla., said Wednesday. “I hope they can be a little bit more optimistic, because what we are doing is what the majority of Americans want,” Radel added. “If it’s not a full defunding, it is to, at minimum, delay Obamacare. And right now, instead of talking about how they can’t get votes, what I
HUDSON FALLS -- After 28 years as an aide at the Hudson Falls Free Library, Lita Casey said, she was “stunned” to get a telephone call from a member of the library’s board of trustees Monday night, telling her she had been fired. She said she believes the action is related to a controversy over the library’s summer reading program. (Snip)The uproar over the reading contest, which drew international attention, occurred over the summer when Gandron said she intended to change the rules of the contest, and Casey opposed the change. Nine-year-old Tyler Weaver won the six-week “Dig Into Reading” competition
Republicans investigating the IRS targeting scandal said Wednesday that the agency continued to conduct secret surveillance on tea party groups even after approving them for tax-exempt status. Acting Commissioner Danny Werfel said he shut down the monitoring program after he found out about it, and said he has halted all audits of tax-exempt organizations based on political activity as he tries to get a handle on the embattled agency. Mr. Werfel, who was tapped four months ago to clean up the Internal Revenue Service after the targeting came to light, also told Congress he is troubled by emails sent by Lois G.
In 2012, then-senator and chairman of the Senate Conservatives Fund Jim DeMint endorsed Jeff Flake in the Arizona Senate race. “Jeff Flake is one of the strongest conservative leaders in Congress," declared DeMint. "[N]obody has done more to advance the cause of freedom than Jeff Flake. Nobody.” But a little over a year since DeMint heaped effusive praise on Flake, the Arizona senator finds himself the subject of attack ads run by the Senate Conservatives Fund. "Republicans in Congress can stop Obamacare by simply refusing to fund it, but Senator Jeff Flake is nowhere to be found," declared one radio
Shoddy recordkeeping led to significant overstating of terrorism convictions and other inaccuracies by a Justice Department branch that coordinates U.S. attorneys’ offices across the country, according to a federal audit. The audit by the department’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, found that the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys (EOUSA) overstated the number of terrorism-related defendants who had been found guilty in fiscal 2009 by 13 percent and then overstated the same statistic in fiscal 2010 by 26 percent. The executive office, which oversees 93 U.S. attorneys’ offices, also overstated by 19 percent the number of defendants sentenced to prison in
I don’t know who is more shocked about this, me or Huma Abedin, but it turns out that a former top Clinton Foundation official is also … a senior Muslim Brotherhood official who has just been arrested for – you’ll never guess – inciting violence in Egypt. Not to worry, I’m sure it was only moderate violence. The Washington Free Beacon’s Adam Kredo reports on Gehad [as in Jihad] el-Haddad: A senior Muslim Brotherhood official who, until recently, had been employed by the William J. Clinton Foundation was arrested in Cairo on Tuesday and charged with inciting violence. Gehad el-Haddad served as one
The board that oversees the U.S. Capitol Police has opened an investigation into whether a tactical team of officers that was one of the first on the scene during the Washington Navy Yard shooting was ordered to stand down. Several sources confirmed the probe to Fox News. The investigation follows reports that a highly trained and specialized Capitol Police team arrived soon after the shooting started, but was told by a supervisor to leave the scene. The BBC, which first reported on the allegation, quoted a Capitol Police "source" as claiming "lives may have been saved" if the team could have intervened. Aaron
A Boston homeless man is feeling the admiration of almost 3,000 strangers who have donated money to him after he handed in a backpack that he found containing over $40,000 in cash and travelers checks. The Good Samaritan’s cause has raised more than $72,287 since Monday — nearly double what the backpack’s contents were worth. Glen James found the black backpack with $2,400 in cash, $39,500 in travelers checks and a passport at the South Bay Mall in Dorchester on Saturday evening. He promptly reported it to police. Officers then returned the bag to the owner, a student visiting from China, and Boston
Texas Gov. Rick Perry has his eyes on wooing jobs away from Maryland, but those jobs are staying put if it’s up to Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley. In his latest economic development campaign, Perry traveled to Maryland this week to ask businesses to consider setting up shop in Texas. Perry has conducted similar campaigns in states including California, Missouri and New York, and has sometimes gotten under his fellow governors’ skin with his blatant tactics. As he’s done in other states, Perry infiltrated the television and radio waves in Maryland last week with advertisements touting the economic opportunities available in the Lone
Leadership sources tell me the House GOP will soon vote on a continuing resolution that simultaneously funds the federal government and defunds Obamacare. Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor are expected to announce the decision at Wednesday’s closed-door conference meeting. This means the conservatives who have been urging Boehner to back a defunding effort as part of the CR have won a victory, at least in terms of getting the leadership to go along with their strategy. But getting such a CR through the Democratic Senate and signed into law will be very difficult — and many House Republican
Washington -- The White House defended President Barack Obama from criticism that he was tone deaf in his reaction to the mass shootings at Washington Navy Yard. For a second straight day, White House press secretary Jay Carney faced questions about a Monday afternoon event that occurred as the situation at the Navy Yard was still unfolding. Obama touched on the tragedy before forcefully criticizing conservative Republicans who are threatening to shut down the government. "I understand that some Republicans are trying to make something of this," Carney said
They call semiautomatics like this sport rifles. You bet. Mostly for the sport of killing innocent people, and killing them fast. So it takes nine months and two days from Newtown, from 20 dead children and six adults, for someone else to carry the same kind of AR-15 that Adam Lanza carried into Sandy Hook Elementary School into the Washington Navy Yard. They call semiautomatics like this sport rifles. You bet. Mostly for the sport of killing innocent people, and killing them fast. This time the shooter is reported to be a Navy reservist named Aaron Alexis and when he is shot dead
For the last few weeks, House Speaker John Boehner has been trying to find a way to convince his caucus to vote for a bill that keeps the government open after Sept. 30 without picking a fight over Obamacare. But a minority of his caucus has been insisting on defunding Obamacare, egged on by outside conservative groups and a handful of far-right Republican Senators, most importantly Ted Cruz (Texas). This has been pretty annoying for a lot of House Republican members and staff. Jonathan Strong and Andrew Stiles of National Review got an anecdote out of a closed Republican Study Committee
President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to "vetted" opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad. Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad´s regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah. The president, citing his authority under the Arms Export Control Act, announced today that he would "waive the prohibitions in sections 40
Suffice it to say, it’s hard to do a deal when the only thing the other guy wants is the one thing you can’t give him. This null set scenario is, unfortunately, precisely where we find ourselves in the debate over funding the government beyond September 30th. House Republicans are insisting that any funding measure simultaneously de-fund Obamacare, while Democrats have rightly proclaimed this idea preposterous. And there appears to be no wiggle room in the GOP position. According to The Wall Street Journal, when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid asked House Speaker John Boehner what else on the entire
JOSE DIAZ-BALART, TELEMUNDO: The Affordable Care Act takes effect next month, The latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows Americans oppose it, believing it will produce damaging results. Fifty-two percent believe the law will raise their health care costs. Is everybody wrong? PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Yes, they are.### OBAMA: The problem we have is that over the last four years billions of dollars have been spent misinforming people about what this law is about. All of the horror stories that were talked about have not come true. It is going to be a good deal
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Monday wearily lamented “yet another mass shooting,” this time in the nation’s capital where the debate that raged earlier this year over tightening firearms laws has stalled amid opposition from gun-rights advocates. The shooting at the Washington Navy Yard came a week after voters recalled two Colorado legislators who supported tougher gun measures, illustrating the strong political headwinds faced by lawmakers seeking to respond to the violence. Obama, for one, has been powerless to get legislation passed despite a string of mass shootings during his presidency. In the wake of the shooting at the Navy Yard, Obama
For those of us foolish enough to live in a crime-gripped city that summarily denies our constitutional right to protect ourselves, this week´s massacre at the Washington Navy Yard pretty well sums up our insane, defenseless existence.Our Capitol Hill neighborhood drowned in the screams of sirens as police cars, vans, trucks and armored vehicles streaked through the narrow streets at deadly speeds. The skies filled with the constant whopping of countless helicopters.
West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin exploded over the Obama administration’s anti-coal policies Tuesday. “We’re getting the living crap beaten out of us,” Manchin said during a Senate hearing with President Barack Obama’s nominee to be the country’s top energy regulator. “There has been nothing more beat up than coal.” Manchin voiced his frustrations with rules put forward by Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency which have made it more costly and difficult for coal plants and coal mines to operate. “They just beat the living daylights out of little West Virginia, but they sure like what we produce,” Manchin added. “We
On Tuesday night, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz wrote the following open letter asking customers to no longer bring firearms into the stores, even in states where they are legally permissible to carry. He notes that this is not a "ban" on guns, but rather a request. In the letter, Schultz expresses frustration with pro-gun activists who have held "Starbucks Appreciation Day" events at the company´s location, ostensibly to laud the coffee shop´s policy on open-carry. Schultz does not want these events held at Starbucks any longer. With the letter, he risks incurring the anger of a large segment of the population.
The liberal media is so obsessed with linking the Navy Yard shooter with the AR-15 rifle that it is making up false tales of Aaron Alexis trying to obtain one. The New York Times attempts to give the impression that a so-called assault-weapon law stopped Alexis from buying a rifle in Virginia, but that is not true. The Times has a story Tuesday on its homepage with the headline “State Law Stopped Gunman From Buying Rifle, Officials Say.” The first line says: “The gunman who killed 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday test fired an AR-15 assault
