Ahead of the Benghazi hearings in which three witnesses are set to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade invited Fox News analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters to discuss the issue. Peters was unflinching in his criticism of the “cowardly” Obama administration — and the “establishment media” that aids it. “Is this a national security coverup?” Kilmeade asking, explaining that the witness testimony is expected to say the administration was deceitful in its handling of the situation. “The administration, facing the election, went into panic mode, wanted to contain it,”
Comments: That pretty much sums it up doesn´t it? When Ralph Peters speaks, I listen. He is a fine, honorable man who speaks the truth.
Here we go again. Another congressional hearing, lots of heat but not so much light. At least time-wise. Constricted once again by their little timer clock, we hear more of ´we have to move on´ than we hear details and facts. Kudos to Chmn. Issa as he gave Mr. Hicks unlimited time, but now there´s no ´time´ for anything else except Democrat platform-shouting about how horrible poor little Mzzzzz. Hilarious has been ´slandered´ and how Chmn. Issa himself has LIED ON TV.
There was too much time between planning and scheduling this hearing, and today´s hearing. We´re getting nothing but b.s. out of the Democrats, their talking points, and their so-called questions. How many times can they interrupt a cogent response to an incoherent question, once that answer makes them sticky in their pannies and they have to cut it off.
I may have said this before, but I officially despise liberals and Democrats. They´re all speaking from Hillary´s notes.
And boo to C-Span for not covering this hearing. They show it on their C-Span3 listing, but their channel 3 is not available. 1 and 2 are, Radio is, but not 3.
Shame on C-Span. I have it on FoxNews as live feed because Fox News keeps interrupting so they can hear THEMSELVES talk about what THEY heard and how THEY interpret. Boos to them too, but thanks for having it on their website.
In the effort to communicate with liberals, it seems we have forgotten to factor this in: that life to all progressives is cheaper than it is to non-progressives. That goes for the life of this country. That goes for the life of a soldier. That goes for the life of all children of the next generation and the one after that. These are dead souls, or souls with a dying "faith tradition." They cannot really understand love because they do not know the God of Love, who said "Greater love hath no man than that he lay down his life for his brother."
I repeat -- nothing will ever come of this. It is already just showing on Fox and is being covered up by all the other media. It does not matter what anyone of high up men say - they will be shredded to pieces. This country is no truthful country anymore. We are being ruled by socialists and there is no turning back.
I am so angry, so sad the continue lies of this administration and those in Congress. American citizens were killed and it matters, they could have been saved but politicians allowed them to be killed by terrorists. I want to scream at them, I want to punch them in the face and tell them to start acting like citizens of the United States and not some two bit apologist for this administration. The same goes for the media, stop protecting this administration, this administration will allow you to be killed to save their butts from any criticism. Start thinking of the country and it´s citizens!
Thanks, ## 25 and 26, I might check it out. Although, I am so disappointed by the mild comments even here, that I´m thinking it isn´t worth the time. The only media comments I´ve heard so far were from the dense and traitorous Erick Erickson, who almost didn´t even address it this afternoon, and when he did chalked it up to incompetence. Baldface lying to the American public does not fall under the purview of incompetence last time I checked.
Very frustrating to have this seemingly fizzle like this...
The Libyan Ambassador did or said something that ticked off Hitlery. We know from other sources that she has a short fuse, a giant ego and a long grudge-bearing temper. The Libyan Embassy either did not get required security or had it pulled to teach him a lesson. She probably smugly gloated each time she turned down his requests for security, imagining him sweating bullets while she, in her ivory tower ´knew´ he was safe enough, as Obama had killed Osama, and ousted Qaddaffi and the Libyans ´loved´ the Administration.
While I personally think they had advance warning, hence the Egyptian Embassy´s odd apology for that unknown video, but in any case, the attack was coming and Hitlery had no way to stop it without revealing to everyone the games she was playing with people´s lives. Worse, the attack came to Obama´s attention during his meeting with Panetta. He shrugged, said, "This isn´t MY fault - deal with it, I have an election to run..." and went to bed, leaving the ball in Hitlery and Panetta´s hands.
They dithered, then after confirming that any response by counter-terrorism would let the cat out of the bag, decided to cut their losses and let the Al Qaida terrorists slaughter Stevens and his staff. No witnesses meant easier to sweep under the rug. The video was either a planned or convenient excuse for this coverup...
...except some troublesome heroes defied orders to stand down and who gave their lives to save the consulate staff (leaving numerous witnesses) caused it to blow up in their faces. With the help of the media, they managed to put a lid on it till after the elections. Now they are rapidly approaching true tyranny to survive.
Make those two miscreants Soetoro and Hildebeast PAY for their transgressions...Politically, Personally, and in front of every voter in the country they will be proved to be FRAUDS and CROOKS and tried, sentenced, impeached, and jailed! This is the beginning of it all!
SeeBS may yet put some duct tape on their reporter Atkinson. Obie threatening SeeBs with the access thing. Obie knew Benghazi would blow up, so trying to control what we are told, right up his alley. But, this time, the internet wins. You lose, Obie.
No. 30. I like your Hitlery theory. It starts to answer my question of WHY? Why did certain people want the Amb dead? I don´t believe the other theories that the Powers are lazy, incompetent, or dull and that´s why they did nothing.
I think there is a more sinister motive, and your Hitlery angle is a nice start, IMHO.
Absolutely nothing... nothing will come from these congressional hearings. The regime and all of their complicit media sluts will just wait this out and then give away more free stuff to the lo-fo´s and their lib/prog enablers. As long as the media whores keep working out on their obama knee pads we will see nothing more than the great whitewash!

Simply put Obama first just Kept handing over our people from Seals to ambassador to anyone else the Queda brotherhood demanded to keep his own miserable self alive over his claim to have killed Bin Laden. Next he knew hillary was just as eager to make political points and set her up to take the fall. finally they lied after Americans died. One doesn´t gather more than a hundred security agents around everywhere he goes if he isn´t scared stupid.
PJ Media columnist J. Christian Adams appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Friday to talk about his recent article detailing how the Department of Homeland Security has recently hired activist immigration attorneys who worked for pro-amnesty, pro-asylum, and open borders groups in the past. Now, sources inside DHS have provided PJ Media with the employment history and pro-amnesty backgrounds of the newly hired lawyers who will be enforcing federal immigration laws. The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.” But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists. Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event
Rep. Matt Cartwright, a member of President Obama´s Obamacare "strike team," says it´s a "good thing" that people are losing their old health care plans: "Because a lot of those people, they did have policies that didn´t meet the minimum standards. That´s just not a theoretical discussion. There´s a reason you have minimum standards. There are people out there who have insurance that´s really an illusion of coverage. They have immense deductibles, they have annual and lifetime caps. There´s so many people out there with what I call phony insurance policies and the fact that they´re going to lose those
Fresh off his interview with President Barack Obama, MSNBC host Chris Matthews appeared on Now with Alex Wagner to review what the president said and to express his thoughts on the passing of former South African President Nelson Mandela. Matthews linked the GOP to South Africa’s white apartheid advocates and declared that those who facilitated the transition to Mandela’s presidency were more patriotic and had greater regard for their country than the Republicans in Congress. Matthews acknowledged a point that Rev. Al Sharpton had made earlier in this broadcast where he noted that the last apartheid president, F.W. de Klerk, recognized
The Obama administration knew as early as August that the small-business portal on healthcare.gov would not be ready by the Oct. 1 launch, but delayed admitting those problems until Nov. 27, according to documents released by House Republicans on Friday. In one colorful email exchange in mid-August, Henry Chao, the administration official charged with the development of the online insurance marketplaces, expressed frustration with delays from the private contractor working on the website. When the contractor suggested a new date of Nov. 15 for the launch of the small-business portal of the website, Chao bluntly asked: “Can we sign this
The White House dismissed a report suggesting that President Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius did not meet ahead of the botched rollout of Obamacare. Obama press secretary Jay Carney said the claim was based on a “ridiculously false premise.” “Kathleen Sebelius comes frequently and she meets frequently with the president,” he said. “She’s here a lot and meets with the president with regularity.” “It’s safe to say Secretary Sebelius spent a lot of time here,” he added, noting the administration’s focus on health care reform. The report from Politico Magazine noted that a Government Accountability Institute analysis of the president’s
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common. There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people. Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges. Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt “obliged” to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It comes on the back of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, which has killed more than 5,000 people. Sir Brian said: “Given the tragic events this
The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is sending out letters telling gun owners to turn over their rifles and shotguns — or else face the consequences. New York City’s ban on rifles and shotguns that hold more than five rounds is now being enforced, according to a letter the NYPD is sending out to targeted city gun owners. “It appears you are in possession of a rifle and/or Shotgun (listed below) that has an ammunition feeding device capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition. Rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition are
