Hillary Clinton’s Dodgy Testimony
Tribune Media Services, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/25/2013 5:19:45 AM

A lot of people in Washington apparently forgot how good Hillary Clinton is at not telling the truth. Wednesday, in her testimony before the Senate and, later, the House, Clinton brilliantly fudged, dodged, and filibustered. Of course, she’s a pro. Clinton was slow-walking depositions, lawyering up, and shifting blame when many of her questioners were still civilians down on the farm. Aided by a ridiculous format, she outfoxed most of the Republicans with ease.Meanwhile, the Democrats, almost uniformly, seemed singularly interested in celebrating Mrs. Clinton as a global diva who somehow manages to carry the burden of her awesomeness

Could there been anything more disgusting than watching the Dems slobber over the PIAPS during her recent testimony?

Politics aside for a moment - sometimes you´ve just got to sympathize with Bill Clinton. While giving her testimony Miss Hillary managed to personify every single attribute that turns a man off in a woman, and any that could possibly turn a man on was utterly lacking. Imagine being married to this Robot of Chill, this Diametric Opposite of Sensuality, this Cheese Grater of Anti-Femininity. It´s amazing Bill hasn´t had hundreds of more affairs than he´s had. Poor guy.

When Kerry takes over her job, there really won´t be much of a gender change at the head of State.

I have concluded that the Republicans, whose principal activity seems to be serving as a foil to the ruthless, relentless progress of the Commiecrats, are too lazy or too stupid to learn from a trenchant column like this one. Very likely, they are both.

"...Obama was happy to watch the country argue new limits on free expression and the necessity of giving bloodthirsty savages and terrorists a heckler’s veto on what Americans can do or say. Clinton was in on that lie, and that makes all the difference in the world."

Best point made yet about this farce. And the entire MSM was in on it, too. And by the way, the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.

After three months of planning on what to say and how to say it, she artfully dodged every question they asked which were few. The Democrats showered her with sickening praise which really turned off the viewers. They did her more harm than she did herself. I had to LOL and even she just rested her head on her hand and listened. Then she had to throw a tantrum when someone dared to ask her a question. It was a Farce alright.

Ah, what difference does it make? I mean, at this point. move on. Right? I cried about it, or pretended to, so isn´t that what really counts. What matters now is finding out what happened so it doesn´t happen again but what difference does it make what happened.

Now, this is so incredible but I suppose nothing about Hillary should surprise me. But, social media is abuzz with people who think, SHE DID GREAT! It doesn´t matter what she did or said. Alll that matters is, "I am woman Hear me Roar. Speak truth to power. Fist in the air. Right ON!" That sentient free Americans should reduce themselves to 1970´s cliches is so dispiriting. Ah, maybe Hillary´s right. What difference does any to it make. The country is over.

I feel for the family members of those killed in Bengazi. Our government officials who should be held accountable for this act, just skated away untouched, then closed the book on this story. This was no hearing, it was a scripted performance designed to make everyone forget about what happened on that day.

I for one am soooo looking forward to the day Jesus returns and brings God´s judgment and justice be done.

I am sooooo tired of the double, triple, or quadruple standards out there.

While the media, sports, Hollywood, liberal Dims, and anyone Anti-American get special treatment under the law, the rest of us have to deal with reality and the sharp rebuke of "justice."

We live in an unrecognizable and ever-worsening place. The people we continue to vote for do not do us any favors. They are more and more becoming a part of the problem rather than our staunch advocates.

I smelled the faint aroma of revolution in this morning´s air...

Bill and HilLIARy´s life has been full of nothing but lying, cheating and stealing.

Off they go - to a house in the Hamptons - millions in their pockets (her campaign debt paid the DAY BEFORE her hearing ?? - AND paid to self!) and millions to be made in the next four years before she makes the history books (her real intent from the beginning) by ANY means possible.....including murder.

If this were a Republican administration, leftists would be screaming about a conspiracy to misinform the public to cover for their role in the deaths of the four Americans, by ignoring the intelligence reports and repeated requests for better security. Hillary and Obama flagrantly lied to cover up their role in the death of these men, but they can constantly lie and break every law and their minions will still back them 100%, because their ultrapartisan leftism trumps everything else.

As usual, Jonah is right on:

"First, why did the administration lie? Well, it wanted to conceal its utter failure to prepare for terrorist attacks on September 11 — which is like being surprised by Christmas falling on December 25. Also, the Obama administration, by which I mean the Obama campaign, was desperate to protect its hyped record of fighting terrorism."

Her Republican questioners should have been ready when she asked "What difference does it make" with this kind of response. Instead, they folded up and were left muttering in the corner. (I like Marco, but he had nothin´.)

Hillary lied and lies without shame or remorse. SHE IS A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR who should not be in politics. In 2008, Hillary accused the Bosnian Serbs of shooting at her, and she and Chelsie had to run for their car, and it was not true. Yesterday, Hillary said that the way the four brave Americans died makes no difference, and she pounded on the table. I am very skeptical about people who pound on the table to make a point The way the four Americans died makes a huge difference to the poor widows and children.
If Hillary had alerted the Army and took the proper rescue measures perhaps the four men may be alive today.
Is it possible that the reason why Hillary did not get their frantic calls for help BECAUSE SHE WAS DRUNK????

The hearing was a disgusting display of fawning incompetence. Why even call for a hearing when the outcome is known in advance, and I think we all knew what would happen in that room. There is no accountability in Washington. Mrs.Clinton skated and Republicans for the most part were ineffective. The questioning was weak and rambling. She filibustered and totally ignored what she didn´t care to answer. The men and women tasked to find out what happened and why should be ashamed. They failed the country and those families.

Hillary has a "tell" when she´s lying. She looks down while she´s talking and moves her head side to side until the lie has been delivered.
She didn´t roll out that phony indignant scream until someone actually got too close for comfort.

Hillary learned well as an assistant to the prosecution at the Watergate hearings. She learned what happens to people who give honest testimony at a politically-directed lynching. So she approaches the hearings with a barrage of earnest doubletalk, baffling bull[bleep], airy generalities, and answering questions with the answer to a question that wasn´t asked -- all the tools of evasion were employed. Her testimony revealed her to be a skilled Artful Dodger and a lousy Secretary of State.

Saw Glenn Beck give a terrific insight into the (w)itch´s performance.

It was trained counterintelligence. Delay, distract, evade and delay, and lie and delay. Did you notice how many times she said she would give her answers later in a written response?

Hillary didn´t answer the questions that were about her lying about the video, etc. She would talk about something else.

Sen. Johnson asked about why they lied to the American public. She didn´t answer the question. She talked about who killed the Americans. That wasn´t the question. The question was why did you lie the to American public?

Another example of the poor excuse for Republicans we have in Congress: If Jonah Goldberg could come up with at least two occasions where PIAPS blamed the video for Benghazi, why couldn´t a republican on the committee say, "excuse me, Madam Secretary, but you DID say this video was to blame. Let me refresh your memory..." and feed her the quotes? Republicans have had at least three months to construct a strategy for this hearing and they didn´t even have the simplest of tactics to counter this harpie. Obama is succeeding: I am virtually assured of registering as an independent from now on. Get a set, Republicans! These people have openly declared war on you, and it´s time to fight back!

Still laughing, #30.

#12, i weep with you.

The media will not do the job of journalism. We have to pick up the slack, i.e., talk to those uninformed voters out there.

Collect the videos of her drinking, of her laughing about the murder of Gaddafi, "We came. We saw. He died. ha ha ha ha." Her faux emotion during the session this week both the "tears" and the "rage." all of it. AND the four years of wreckage left in her wake.

Remember when she was running for the Senate, and her male opponent (name slips my mind) dared to approach her podium, her "space"?

Is Biden going to, ahem, roll over for her?

That is the capitol (another 15 secords). So what else was in Benghazi? So I looked down a list of Govermental Offices other agencies. A ha! I found the Transitional council for the Liberation of Libya.(10 seconds).
This was the group we were armingto fight Kadaffi. Might w still be arming them?

Good morning. An epic addition to my collection of jaw-dropping hypocrisy: anti-gun California Democratic state senator Leland Yee was indicted for conspiring to commit wire fraud and traffic firearms. Oh, and the mayor of Charlotte was charged with bribery, and the FBI raided the office of a New York state legislator. That’s direct and straightforward bribery. But have you ever noticed how many elected officials have private law practices? Particularly those at the local or state levels, with jobs that aren’t necessarily year-round or full-time? It would be tough to ban these practices entirely, but it always seems like a potential back

U.S. taxpayers spent nearly $16 million to fly the Obamas to, from and around Hawaii and Africa, Air Force records obtained by Judicial Watch show.

In a surprising twist at the end of a long trial, a District of Columbia judge found Mark Witaschek guilty of “attempted possession of unlawful ammunition” for antique replica muzzleloader bullets. Judge Robert Morin sentenced Mr. Witaschek to time served, a $50 fine and required him to enroll with the Metropolitan Police Department’s firearm offenders’ registry within 48 hours. Outside the courtroom, I asked Mr. Witaschek how he felt about the verdict. “I’m completely outraged by it,” he said. “This is just a continuation of the nightmare. Just to sit there. I could not believe it.” Shaking his head, he added,

The arrests of Leland Yee and Patrick Cannon shows that some politicians still have real ambition when it comes to public corruption. Who said politicians lack ambition these days? The twin arrests of California state senator Leland Yee and Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon on Wednesday show that while politicians may have given up on New Deals or taking down Evil Empires, there are still some who dream big. Cannon was elected mayor of Charlotte in November, which incidentally happened to be almost a year into the FBI’s investigation of him. A former city councilman, it is alleged that the North Carolina Democrat

Global health success:

India has been certified polio-free by the World Health Organization after going three years without an endemic case of polio. The eradication of polio in India is heralded as one of the biggest achievements in global health efforts. The polio-free certification by the Regional Certification Commission came Thursday, along with a proclamation that Southeast Asia is free of the disease. Just five years ago, India was home to nearly half the global polio cases and considered one of the most technically difficult places to eradicate the disease, because of sanitation challenges and high-density population. India´s last case was reported in

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable.

Search for the wreckage of the plane continues today with the detection of 122 “credible” floating objects in the Indian Ocean, but an expert has warned the black box may be “impossible” to find. According to The Telegraph UK, a United States black box detector is due to arrive on April 5, just two days before the black box’s pinger is due to run out of battery. By that time it

On a playground or in a bar, the most important thing to know about a bully is his motivation. What ticks him off? Who´s his next victim? If it´s you, how do you avoid a butt-kicking? On the world stage, Vladimir Putin is a bully—and President Obama not only seems clueless about the Russian leader´s inner drive, he embraces his ambivalence. "I´m less interested in motivation," Obama said Monday in The Hague, "and more interested in the facts and the principles that not only the United States but the entire international community are looking to uphold."

Reid has agreed to reimburse his campaign for the purchase, which the Reid office claims consisted of “coasters, picture frames and other trinkets” valued around $50 each. Yet questions remain: The Washington Post has asked Reid’s campaign precisely what kind of gifts the money was used to purchase. The campaign has yet to respond to multiple inquiries.

No, not quite. But the New York Times might as well have referred to President Obama with that title in a story by Jason Horowitz this past Sunday that tried to portray the president as being part of the Catholic experience in America. According to Horowitz (of Romney-was-a-prep-school-bully fame), President Obama began his professional career working in numerous Catholic parishes throughout Chicago´s South Side. He worked intimately with priests, bishops, and other Catholic leaders to serve the poor and needy. And despite not letting Catholic doctrine "tempt him," he nonetheless "effectively proselytized for the church." Moreover, the young Obama fit seamlessly into a

This is the story of MSNBC in a nutshell: It rose to prominence on its criticism of George W. Bush, peaked during Barack Obama´s historic 2008 campaign, and, by criticizing Republicans and championing liberal causes, sustained its viewership in the years that followed. Until now. MSNBC suffered harder loses in 2013 -- in terms of both viewership and revenue -- than either of its competitors at Fox News and CNN, according to Nielsen data featured in a new Pew Research report. Prime-time viewership declined by a staggering 24 percent (nearly twice the loss sustained by CNN and four-times that sustained by Fox

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

Six months ago, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa subpoenaed the emails of former head of IRS Tax Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. Lerner was in charge during the IRS´ inappropriate targeting of conservative, patriot and tea party groups. IRS officials have failed to comply with the subpoena and today during a hearing on Capitol Hill, Issa threatened IRS Commissioner John A. Koskinen, one of only two political appointees at the agency, with contempt. "Unfortunately you´ve been more concerned with managing political fallout than complying with this Committee," Issa said, urging Koskinen to comply or "potentially be held in

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

Washington - A leading Democratic pollster predicted a "sobering" turnout disadvantage for her party in this year´s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate "a bigger economic agenda" this fall. "There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters. "There is always a challenge in turnout in an off year, but it´s really dramatic this time." Lake was speaking a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Lake and Republican pollster Ed Goeas revealed results of a new George Washington University poll that showed GOP voter intensity in 2014 outpacing

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time. During a March 12 congressional hearing, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady that there would be no such extensions. ´Are you going to delay the open enrollment beyond March 31?´ Brady asked. ´No, sir,´ she replied. On the same day, Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for the

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and
