Why Benghazi didn´t bring
down Hillary Clinton

The Week, by Harold Maass

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 1/24/2013 8:26:09 AM

Several Republicans spent Wednesday grilling Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, which killed U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) assailed Clinton for failing to read diplomatic cables requesting more security at the consulate, claiming that it was a fireable offense. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) suggested that administration officials had deliberately misled the American people by initially claiming that the attack had started as a spontaneous riot. As Johnson repeatedly pressed her on why she hadn´t discovered

Hillary got lots of air time where she looked competent and capable. Nothing else needs to be said. The only thing standing in the way of her being the Democratic nominee for President is Joe Biden. My money is on Hillary.

She looked like a smirking liar.

Rarely if ever answered a question.

If the powers that be thought she was doing so well they would not have released the meaningless statement that the Pentagon had decided to allow women in combat.

Are we so easily minipulated into believing the msm?

Seems that way. Most of the posts I have seen here on Ldot have been bashing the republicans.

One has to wonder.....

I watched the stupid hearings. Imagine...alternating dhims and repubs.

R´s tried to get in their questions. If they got in just one, she strung out her answer with irrelevant nothings and ran out the clock. If they tried to say everything, she just answered a little bit and let the rest go. They were ineffectual.

Each question had to be prefaced with the obligatory "Thank you O Great One, You are Worthy of Praise for your mileage" ad nauseum. Gack.

The democrats were fawning and eating up the clock with their turns.

What a farce. I should never have watched the whole thing. The stench and the memory are still with me.

Congress has shown itself to be as incompetent and ineffectual as Hillary and her boss. At another place in time she would have resigned in disgrace and disappeared long ago. Also, with the extent of the lies and obvious cover-up, this entire administration would have been brought down.

Of course this didn´t bring Hitlery down. If her husband in name only (HINO) wasn´t brought down for getting a Lewinsky at work and lying about it or an incompetent jerk like Obambi can get elected, then why should this country be concerned about our ambassador getting slaughter in some Hades hole? This issue isn´t why did Hitlery get away with it, the issue is why have we as a country given up on honest effective principled and wise leaders? Al we seemed interested in is someone that can entertain with a good speech or a heck of a TelePrompTer reading.

She just kept the wimpy Republicans on ice until she found out what everybody else was going to say, and then gave her rehearsed performance. By that time what she said made little difference to the large majority of the American people who have little or no knowledge of what actually happened that night in Benghazi, the liberal Democrats who run Washington, DC, or herself. Obviously they were all just trying to cover Obama´s butt until he could get re-elected, even Romney went along with that.

If my memory serves me correctly, Hillary Clinton, when she was still Hillary Rodham, was part of the Watergate team which brought down President Nixon´s presidency. Too bad that Nixon hadn´t thought of that "cute" phrase, "What difference does it make? We have to move forward." Seems like Hillary has changed her tune.

In this political environment, there was no way any democrat would dare suggest thet Clinton was anything but perfect in her handling of Benghazi. She will likely be the next presidential candidate, plus she and her wayward husband are essential for the successful campaigns of many of the democrat members of congress. A wounded Hillary does no democrat except for Joe Biden any good.

The media, besides being in the tank for the democrats love, love, love Bill and Hill. They can just recite the administration talking points while sitting on their lazy behinds.

The fix was in folks but cheers to the GOP members of the committee who did make their opinions known. At least some had a hint of courage!

She was GRILLED? grilled? she was basted in oleaginous perfunctoriness and sycophantic praises from slavish toadies.

It was a disgusting display of weaklings quaveringly and unctuously approaching the tyrant´s throne, and Dem/Lefties prostituting themselves on the sacrifical altar of naked political power.

Again, the Repubs do not get it: the incurious, intellectually vapid public has been kept ignorant --by the venal and wicked, brown-nosed media in cahoots with the Dem/Left-- of the facts surrounding Benghazi.

Stupid, fawning, silly, shallow "citizens", clutching their condoms and spermicidal gel and free passes for abortatoria, still think that Benghazi is "some guy named Ben Ghazi, you know, like, over there somewhere."

utterly disgusting

Vote to Hold Lois Lerner in Contempt of

Breitbart Instablog, by John Sexton    Original Article
Posted By: drive- 4/4/2014 1:52:35 PM     Post Reply
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced yesterday that it will hold a vote to decide whether former I.R.S. employee Lois Lerner is in contempt of Congress on Thursday, April 10th. Lerner has twice been called before Congress to testify about her involvement in the inappropriate targeting of conservative 501(c)(4) groups for extra scrutiny. On both occasions Lerner asserted her 5th amendment right not to testify. Rep. Issa and other Republicans on the Committee have maintained that Lerner waived her right not to testify when, during her first appearance before the Committee back in 2013, she made a speech proclaiming her

The Obama administration has made it increasingly difficult for Congress and inspectors general to uncover government misdeeds and access information in various agencies, according to recent congressional testimony and reports. On Thursday, Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz testified before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing that Attorney General Eric Holder stonewalled his investigation of the “Operation Fast and Furious” gunwalking scandal. Mr. Horowitz also said his office has been stymied in other investigations of the Justice Department because of the Obama administration’s interpretation of access laws, which essentially requires investigators to ask department heads for permission to investigate them. “For a review

Hypersensitive students and professors all over the country are about to score another victory for political correctness if they succeed in their mission to normalize the use of “trigger warnings,” which are intended to protect people from taking part in class discussions and media that might offend them. Trigger warnings are most commonly attached to online news articles and blog posts. They warn readers that the post contains specific, offensive content. An article about sexual violence, for instance, might come with a trigger warning for rape victims. The idea is to prevent post traumatic stress. But censorship-inclined activists are now eager to

There’s a scene in P.G. Wodehouse’s Right Ho, Jeeves where Bertie Wooster receives a telegram from his fearsome Aunt Dahlia that reads: “Come at once.” Bertie is puzzled. He reflects and agonizes and sends several follow-up telegrams requesting more lucid instruction. Finally he shows the cable to his perceptive manservant Jeeves and asks him to translate. “I think Mrs. Travers wants you to come at once, sir,” Jeeves says. Sometimes it seems like the liberal base of the Democratic Party has a similar problem. They’ve been saying for decades: “We want Medicare for all.” Senior Democrats furrow their brows and ruminate, they

WASHINGTON — From Boston proud to Boston crass. Boston Red Sox superstar slugger David Ortiz took a selfie with President Barack Obama on Tuesday, jumping in with his cellphone moments before the official White House photo op to honor the World Series champs. “What an honor! Thanks for the #selfie, @BarackObama,” @davidortiz tweeted. By Wednesday night, the pic had 40,478 retweets and 46,765 favorites. Ortiz, it turns out, was not just a guy at the White House getting an insiders tour — because Ortiz just signed an endorsement deal with Samsung, the cellphone maker.

A Michigan mother of five says that the crushing new costs associated with Obamacare have imperiled her family’s financial future and will burden the household with thousands of dollars in unexpected expenses. The uptick in costs that Shannon Wendt and her family will face in the coming years under President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act will strain the family’s finances and force both Shannon and her husband to work harder to bridge the fiscal gap. Wendt initially decided to discuss her plight in an ad produced by the advocacy group Americans for Prosperity, which has chronicled the negative impact of Obamacare on

WASHINGTON — In July 2010, Joe McSpedon, a U.S. government official, flew to Barcelona to put the final touches on a secret plan to build a social media project aimed at undermining Cuba´s communist government. McSpedon and his team of high-tech contractors had come in from Costa Rica and Nicaragua, Washington and Denver. Their mission: to launch a messaging network that could reach hundreds of thousands of Cubans. To hide the network from the Cuban government, they would set up a byzantine system of front companies using a Cayman Islands bank account, and recruit unsuspecting executives who would not be

Supreme Court Strikes Down
Overall Political Donation Cap

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Wednesday continued its abolition of limits on election spending, striking down a decades-old cap on the total amount any individual can contribute to federal candidates in a two-year election cycle. The ruling, issued near the start of a campaign season, will very likely increase the role money plays in American politics. The 5-to-4 decision, with the court’s more conservative members in the majority, echoed Citizens United, the 2010 decision that struck down limits on independent campaign spending by corporations and unions. Wednesday’s decision seemed to alter campaign finance law in subtle but important ways, notably by limiting

Earlier in the week, Twitter was ablaze with a debate over Obamacare and public opinion: Was the Washington Post/ABC News poll purporting to show the law´s approval slightly above water an outlier, or the beginning of a trend? I argued the former, citing a fresh CBS News survey that aligned with previous negative polling. The latest Quinnipiac poll should settle the debate. It pegs President Obama´s approval rating underwater at 42/50, with Obamacare clocking in at 41/55. A few additional findings: (1) Voters split roughly evenly on the generic Congressional ballot, with independents leaning toward the GOP by seven points.

Employers Say Obamacare Will Cost

Obamacare will cost large companies between $4,800 and $5,900 more per employee and add hundreds of millions to their overhead, according to a new survey. The American Health Policy Institute conducted a confidential survey of 100 large employers—those with 10,000 or more employees—asking what costs they expect to incur from Obamacare over the next decade. Factoring in the health care law’s added mandates, fees, and regulatory burdens, employers anticipate cost hikes between $163 million and $200 million in 2016, a 4.3 percent increase. By 2023, employers will be paying 8.4 percent more than “what they would otherwise be spending” for

Democratic lawmakers and campaign finance reform advocates quickly bashed Wednesday’s Supreme Court decision to strike down total limits on individual campaign contributions, warning of future corruption in elections. Meanwhile, Republicans largely cheered the ruling from the narrowly divided court, which found it unconstitutional to impose caps on the aggregate amounts that one person can donate to campaigns, parties and political action committees. Calling himself “all for freedom,” Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Wednesday commended the ruling, saying “donors ought to have the freedom to give what they want to give."

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors.

"I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged 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.

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the
