Senior Fox News political analyst Brit Hume laid out why this week’s testimony on last September’s terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya could be problematic for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Hume, speaking on Tuesday’s broadcast of “America Live,” said there is no feasible way for her to escape any responsibility since she had to be involved in the crafting of the talking points that came out after the attack that resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including then-U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. "There’s really no way for her to escape responsibility for this if this
Comments: The only problem is it will take a Democrat to pull it off in 2016 if we are to seriously believe the media will ever question Hillary on it I think
If any members of the House Oversight Committee read these boards, it is imperative that they earnestly seek facts at the hearing on Wednesday, and not waste their precious five minutes on trivial talk. Obama and Hillary Clinton are where the buck stops. And may we also know where are the 33 people who survived the attack on Benghazi, ? -let them speak too.Bravo to the whistleblowers for keeping this terrible event from being buried under a mound of falsehoods.
Seems some LDotters have forgotten just who Her Thighness really is... so let me remind you, kiddies: Old Ma Clinton is aka PIAPS or Hildebeast or Hilly Hag or HilLIARy or Shrillary. ... The shrieking hag will skate, Just like she did in Whitewater, Cattle futures, travelgate, Fostergate, Etc. She is a first class grifter whose cunning is formidable. Mooch is a piker, compared to the Hag. Mooch is merely greedy, hungry for free loppstah, and hates whitey. Hilly Hag is the amalgamated bæsturd child of Dracula , Hitler and Elena Ceaucescu. And she may well be our next priest, given the unprecedented voter fraud that put that creature BO in the WH. This ain´t going to be pretty. The rabid, screeching hag will find a way to bump her head again or just say she doesn´t recall. MSM will remain supine and asleep. America is soooooo f***ed.
Has Brit been asleep or living on an alternate planet, lo these many years? Or perhaps this is the first time the name Hillary has graced his ears? Brit, check in with reality at least once in a while - just for the fun of it.
With God all things are possible! Trust in Him and He will bring it to pass. There are still plenty believers in this country and together as we pray, God works miracles - Truth being known by America!
Truly, I don´t see how even the utterly shameless Dems can nominate her now.
But they will rebound, and it could be even worse than Hills.
And thank you, #8. It´s not the rinos who cost us the last two elections and the country - I think it has more to do with the negative image of Republicans and conservatives that many or most people have - not to mention the fraud and freebie factors, obviously.
Left-leaning Daily Beat columnist Kirsten Powers, who recently revealed how she lost her health coverage under Obamacare, slammed the Obama administration’s efforts to deal with the metastasizing Affordable Care Act Tuesday night. On Tuesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, the “All-Star Panel” weighed in on the administration’s responses to the disastrous Obamacare rollout. Washington Post columnist George Will blamed the widening crisis on President Barack Obama’s lack of managerial experience. “Well, everyone is talking about extraordinarily complicated act as though it’s a tinker toy,” Will explained. “If you don’t like this part, just plug in another part.
Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer slammed Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’s congressional testimony as “pathetic” in an interview set to air on Wednesday’s Hugh Hewitt radio show. The author of “Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics” said Sebelius’ performance before the House Energy and Commerce Committee left much to be desired, even if viewers took into account there wasn’t much she could have said. “To her credit — and it was a pathetic, horrible, mortifying performance. She wasn’t holding a lot of cards,” Krauthammer said.
Washington Post columnist George Will said he wants Obamacare to fail, pointing the impossibility of controlling one-sixth of the economy with central planning after his co-panelist Juan Williams declared Republicans did not want the law to work. Williams accused Will and his other co-panelists on this weekend’s “Fox News Sunday” during the show’s online-only “Panel Plus” segment of “schadenfreude” in voicing their reactions to the failure the HealthCare.gov launch. “[Y]ou know, I just think there is a lot of schadenfreude on the panel this morning,” Williams said. “ And people, ‘Oh yeah, you know, isn’t it terrible —
Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume told Hugh Hewitt Tuesday that the President Barack Obama and other Democrats’ partisan rhetoric is unprecedented. “There’s no doubt about that, and you know, I’ve never seen, actually, partisan attacks, where you simply are attacking the other party outright by name, calling the other party out, is something a little unusual,” Hume said. “I’m accustomed to seeing, I mean, it’s done in one form or another, and it has been for years. But I’ve never seen it done by a president himself to the extent that it’s been done by this president
Conservative talker Mark Levin has a stern warning for President Barack Obama and his administration: Don’t mess with the World War II veterans. Levin, author of “The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic,” told his audience on his Wednesday radio show should there be any action taken against those veterans for visiting the World War II Memorial on the National Mall, even with the government shutdown, he would bring 500,000 people to march on the Washington, D.C. in response. “I want to tell you folks something — I want to say this loud and clear to the people
On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” network contributors Juan Williams and Charles Krauthammer debated the merits of North Carolina’s new voter identification legislation signed into law this week by North Carolina Republican Gov. Pat McCrory. Williams said there are circumstances in which photo identification is necessary, but since voting is a right, he argued that identification shouldn’t be a requirement. “When I look at the polls, most Americans support voter ID,” Williams said. “Most Americans are pretty clear in their thinking that if you have to, as Gov. McCrory said, show some ID
On Sean Hannity’s Wednesday night television program, conservative commentator Michelle Malkin took up the Fox News host’s side in his weeks-long feud with MSNBC’s Al Sharpton. Malkin, the author of “Culture of Corruption,” expressed her disappointment in Hannity’s participation in Sharpton’s 2011 National Action Network convention. But she had Hannity’s back in the dispute, and reminded his viewers of Sharpton’s over-the-top remarks in the late 1980s involving Tawana Brawley and her false accusations of rape by six white men. “Al Sharpton has blood on his hands,” Malkin said. “He’s ruined lives. He’s been one of the worst purveyors
In a wide-ranging interview with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren on Tuesday night, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh said there is an alliance between President Obama’s White House and the mainstream news media “They agree with him,” Limbaugh said. “They’re him. They are — I think they’re all part of the elitist New York-Washington-Boston media academic corridor and they think they are Obama. They think same education, same school, same world view. But there’s also, I think — and I’ve been doing my radio show for 25 years. And it’s getting to the point now where things are starting
On Sunday’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” on ABC, Washington Post columnist George Will took on proponents of federal assistance for Detroit, which declared bankruptcy earlier this month. According to Will, the city isn’t undergoing a fiscal crisis, but is facing a much more serious cultural one, which is the source of its woes. “Can’t solve the problems because the problems are cultural,” Will said.
In an appearance on Laura Ingraham’s radio program on Tuesday, Hoover Institution senior fellow Shelby Steele elaborated on a Monday op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Monday arguing that the so-called civil rights establishment is in decline, as seen when the verdict in the George Zimmerman trial failed to create a significant reaction.“I think probably, you know, the attempts to have big supportive rallies for Trayvon Martin and for the idea of him as a victim of white racism, has come to different cities around the country to put together these marchers and so forth
On Tuesday’s broadcast of Laura Ingraham’s radio show, economist and Intellectuals and Race author Thomas Sowell blasted Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan argument for immigration reform. During a June appearance on Ingraham’s show, Ryan had said the U.S. might face labor shortages unless immigration policy is overhauled. “That’s incredible,” Sowell said. “I mean —first of all to an economist, it is incredible to speak about shortages without talking about prices , in this case wages…You know there, there have been so many predictions of shortages of so many occupations and the shortages don’t materialize. And why not?
On Tuesday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer called President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care reform law a “bait and switch” and said the administration’s recent move to delay the employer mandate is unconstitutional. Elaborating on a claim he made earlier in the week, Krauthammer explained that the postponement of certain provisions of the law — including the delay until 2015 of the requirements that employers provide coverage to employees and that beneficiaries show proof of income — creates more problems. “Look, the promise of this president was Obamacare won’t
Oprah Winfrey has said racism is still a problem around the world and the only way for it to end is for generations of racists to die out. In an interview with the BBC to coincide with the release of her latest film The Butler, the chat show host said generations had been ´marinated´ in racism. The 59-year-old added that President Obama was treated with disrespect because of the color of his skin and said she feels fortunate to have been born after segregation ended in the U.S. [Snip] She highlighted an incident in 2009 when Republican congressman Joe Wilson
Pollster John Zogby reports in our weekly White House report card that President Obama’s health care program is still troubled, but he gets credit for taking ownership and trying to fix it. "Forget about Iran and unemployment, this week was all about Obamacare and it was a ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ moment. As Tevye would say: ´Un da vun hand, but un da udda hand…´ “So we have the president admitting he broke his promise to Americans when he promised they could keep their plans. And the GOP gloated, mocked, preached doom and a failed presidency, and made a solemn vow to
Last week I was informed by the agent who handles my firm’s health-care insurance that, come 2014, our group plan will be cancelled and replaced with an ObamaCare plan.SNIP Well, here’s how I see it. It sure looks to me as if the President of the United States, members of his administration, and Democratic Congressional leaders didn’t just lie. I think they intentionally perverted the truth. And I think they did it because, if they didn’t, they knew the bill wouldn’t pass through Congress.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Some 50 years after John F. Kennedy´s sole presidential term was cut short by an assassin´s bullets, nearly three-quarters of Americans believe Kennedy will go down in history as an outstanding or above-average president. This is the highest retrospective rating given to any of the 11 presidents who have held office since Dwight Eisenhower. Another fifth of the public sees the slain president as average, while just 3% rank him as below average or poor. Kennedy was killed on Nov. 22, 1963, and the 50-year anniversary of his assassination is being marked by a bevy of new
Congressional Republicans have Obamacare right where they want it. The idea of a one-year delay of the law, always far-fetched as long as the Democrats controlled the Senate, is suddenly looking plausible. “I think there needs to be a one-year suspension of the entire law, at least, if not a longer suspension,” says Georgia Republican Tom Price. “The Senate Democrats and the president are the ones that have to decide it needs to be done.” When asked about a delay, House Republican whip Kevin McCarthy chuckles but doesn’t answer. Instead, he suggests that the law’s destructiveness could upend the entire health
His actor parents are well known activists and Stephen Ira Beatty seems determined to follow in their footsteps. The eldest child of Warren Beatty and Annette Bening, who revealed he was transgender at the age of 14, appears in a new public service announcement (PSA) urging New York to change its Medicaid regulation which excludes transgender people from accessing healthcare. Stephen, 21, appears confident and informed as he speaks about the problem, saying: ‘I grew up outside of New York, but I´ve always known I´ve wanted to move here for the city´s vibrant artistic community. ‘As a trans person, I
U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan told a group of state schools superintendents Friday that he found it “fascinating” that some of the opposition to the Common Core State Standards has come from “white suburban moms who — all of a sudden — their child isn’t as brilliant as they thought they were and their school isn’t quite as good as they thought they were.” Yes, he really said that. But he has said similar things before. What, exactly, is he talking about? In his cheerleading for the controversial Common Core State Standards — which were approved by 45 states and the
The headline is a statement to, not a quote from Boehner, but it was worth the deception to make the point. President Obama has been given so much slack by an enabling Washington D.C. media, that Obama is now hanging onto the rope to avoid falling into the abyss. The fawning media who placed all their political bets on his success, is unwilling to admit publicly (and perhaps even privately) what they know in their brains but unwilling to let their heart in on: Obama is and always was a phony.
Mary Cheney, a daughter of the former vice president, and her wife, Heather Poe, sharply criticized on Sunday a comment by by Ms. Cheney’s sister, Liz Cheney, a candidate for the Senate in Wyoming, that they disagreed on the issue of same-sex marriage. “Liz – this isn’t just an issue on which we disagree, you’re just wrong – and on the wrong side of history,” Mary Cheney, who is gay, wrote on her Facebook page. Ms. Poe’s comments were sharper and more personal. “Liz has been a guest in our home, has spent time and shared holidays with our children, and when
As the story of the Obamacare website fiacso unfolds, senior administration aides tell me that the president is “mad, frustrated and angry.” Mad that his signature legislative achievement is stuck at the gate, frustrated that he’s running out of time to fix it, and angry that he’s got a second term agenda now going nowhere. He’s so furious, in fact, that he stepped out of character to vent to an assembled group of top aides. “If I had known [about the website problems] ,” the steaming president reportedly said, according to the New York Times, “We could have delayed the
WASHINGTON - A terrifying new ‘game’ that’s already caused deaths in Syracuse, St. Louis and New Jersey is sweeping the nation, and it preys upon unsuspecting people walking the streets, anywhere. A recent report from New York-based CBS 2 shed light on the growing trend, displaying unsettling footage of teens participating in this game – which goes by the name ‘Knockout’ – and involves randomly targeting passersby, with the ultimate goal being to knock them out with one punch as they walk by. One victim shown in the footage was 46-year-old Ralph Santiago of Hoboken, N.J., who was found dead with his
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has entered the final, mortifying stage of denial where one flails feebly about in the desperate search for an argument that might generate some traction. The spectacular collapse of Democratic standing in public opinion polls has prompted Democrats to voluntarily chip away at the very financial foundation of the Affordable Care Act – a prospect that any pundit would have deemed unthinkable just three weeks ago. Democrats are terrified, but Pelosi, an old pro, never wants to let them see her sweat. To that end, during a press conference with her fellow Democratic leaders
