No way Hillary could ever
gain our troops’ trust

Despite conventional wisdom, Republicans and Democrats can agree on important issues. As a lifelong Republican, I agree with Democrat Warren Buffett: Obamacare should be scrapped. I also agree with Hollywood liberals that NSA spying on millions of innocent Americans is a violation of our collective right to privacy. And I agree with feminist Camille Paglia that Hillary Clinton disqualified herself as a presidential candidate with her handling of Benghazi. Here’s why: The most important duty of the commander in chief is to keep Americans safe. Before the deadly Sept 11, 2012, attack resulting in the brutal murders of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens,

It´s called dereliction of duty. She failed. Obama went to bed early so he could fly to CA to party with the wealthy Socialists in Hollywood. They really don´t care as long as they have the power and money. The idea of that woman even running for President gives me the creeps.

Trust a woman who will lie to grieving families for political gain? Please. Hillary is so steeped in political chicanery she should hide her face in shame. She won´t. Therefore, we must do it for her. Get the hook and pull her off the political stage.

#1 If the woman was like Golda Meir or Margaret Thatcher or Sarah Palin I wouldn´t hesitate to vote for a woman for President. But hillary isn´t like any of them and she could care less about the trust of the troops. Her husband loathed the military the way I loath the msm and I expect she loathes the military as well. If she gets elected look for more of the purges of the military started by obama, less funding and more overall destruction of the greatest military the world has ever see. The last thing a leftist like hillary will do is protect the country. God help us if she follows obama as President the Republic will be destroyed Period!

Obama has already proved that an anti-American can be elected and then re-elected to the post of CIC. In this age of low information voter, Hillary would need to dis someone´s favorite TV show or rap artist to be disqualified.

And Susan Rice´s excuse that Hillary had not appeared on the day of Rice´s fateful 5-appearance "It was the video" Lie-a-thon was that Hillary "had had a very stressful week."

I am sure that a CIC has MANY stressful weeks. Many 3 am phone calls.

So Hillary calls in sick??

Remember her "fall" and "bump on the head"? What a total crock.

A fine bill of particulars from Adriana. Well done.
Leave Four Men Behind Hilary, is finished, as tightly defined by Adriana. This is not a complex matter.
It´s simplified dereliction of duty, and this story must be told again and again to counter the onslaught of the government propagandists aka NYSlimes, WaPo Sawyers, Pelley, that is, all the government worshipful press and media indoctrinating propagandists, posing as traitorous news actors.

The very interesting, "BUT FOR" legal principle, applies here.
BUT FOR the press media censorship of Hilary´s vicious act of brutality against our own men in harm´s way, but for that cover up media conspiracy, Hilary would be disgraced, if not charged with dereliction of duty, and LONG GONE, drummed out of any credibility . Toast !

Hillary and Zippy should have been forced to memorize the Ranger Creed whose 5th stanza ends with "I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country". The former Secretary of State and the president left good Americans to die. They will have to answer for that. The real truth will come out. Hillary Clinton will never be president of these United States.

Cold hard fact is the trrops don´t have to trust just obey. Any order issued by the Commander in Chief, unless unlawful, has to be obeyed or that person can be considered in dereliction of duty or disobeying a direct order and could be thusly charged.

The only way out of that dilemma would be for the entire army to refuse to obey. Gives you pause to wonder what the TSA is for?

It is precisely because Miss Hillary would be a reprehensible and irresponsible commander in chief that the Democrats want her in that position. "Progressives" hate the US military like no other enemy, so what better way to tear the military down than giving control of it to a national defence laughingstock? If you think that´s an exaggeration, you haven´t noticed the Marxist pot smoker who´s in charge of it now.

Arguing with Democrats that Monica´s former boyfriend´s pretend wife would make a bad commander in chief is pointless - that´s why they want her in command!

What difference does it make? Liberals and democrats will vote for her anyway. Military votes will not be counted (didn´t get them in time, lost in the trunk of a car, etc). She could easily win in 2016 after amnesty if granted to millions of undocumented,non-working voters.

FAR: ´´The military doesn´t have to trust her, just obey her.´´

Trust is a key requirement for leadership. The military are not slaves, existing for a leader´s amusement. She will not be trusted because the military knows that she despises them.

Hillary will not only suffer lack of trust, but the military will despise her. The top generals, who are nothing more than politicians, will toady up to her (they don´t have the honor to fall on their swords- figuretivly speaking- for the welfare of the troops.)

It will be difficult to maintain a volunteer force with a witch like Hillary.

There was a military contingent at Benghazi who also pleaded to stay and protect that outpost. What happened? The Hildebeast determined they were needed for a sporting event in the Caribbean and removed them.

Remember when the military refused to salute the Horn Dog and turned their back on him? Both Clintonistas viscerally hate the military.

Holder’s undermining of the
law deserving of contempt
Washington Times, by Robert Charles    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 5:10:28 AM     Post Reply
Attorney General Eric H. Holder was reminded during a recent congressional hearing that he has been held in “contempt of Congress” — for nonproduction of subpoenaed documents. He interrupted with a personal rebuke of his questioner. Later, he suggested that questioning of his leadership, nonresponsiveness to congressional oversight, and referring to the contempt vote was evidence of racism. The accusation was made a second time, perhaps as a political stratagem, by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Let’s stop there — and stop the deflection, too. No attorney general of the United States is entitled, for any reason, to escape scrutiny of Congress,

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
