Rice’s “No Regrets” and Obama’s Arrogance
Commentary Magazine, by Jonathan S.Tobin

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/23/2014 7:49:52 PM

It’s hard to understand exactly why Susan Rice is still refusing to admit fault about her lies about the Benghazi attack. When asked this morning on Meet the Press by David Gregory whether she had any regrets about appearing on four network news shows the Sunday after the 9/11/12 attacks that took the lives of four Americans and telling the nation that what happened was the result of a demonstration against a video, Rice said she had none: David, no. Because what I said to you that morning, and what I did every day since, was to share the best

A documented liar and rat harridan of the first magnitude. She needs to be indicted for crimes committed against the American People in the cover up of the killings in Benghazi.

It´s the Obama way. Lie, then if you´re caught lying, double-down and lie some more. It´s how the ´RATS operate. Obama and his regime is full of liars and they give us nothing but lies. I think Bill Klintoon started the trend.

C´mon, Jonathan, it´s easy to understand. David Gregory gets credit for asking, Susan Rice takes credit for answering, and the elites tell the rest of us to move along already - that´s ancient history that has already been dealt with.

This administration does not acknowledge the concept of lying. It is not in their vocabulary because they don´t consider statements uttered to protect or advance their agenda a lie. It is a means to an end. We have to stop expecting integrity from these people. It is not in them. We can ask until we are blue in the face but they will never admit to lying. They know if they tell a lie often enough, it will be taken as truth. Joe Wilson had it right. Obama lies as does his whole administration. The parsing of words coming out of their mouths is Orwellian.

This is a great article with many points that deserve highlighting. But, the bottom line is everything they do is driven by politics. To think that we are still being fed a lie and that they know it will be accepted tells me more about the MSM and the public than it does about the scum in the WH. And don´t for one minute think it wont continue since hildebeast is waiting in the wings to see if it´s gonna work.

The fact no one has been held responsible, killed or captured, probably never will, shows they still keep secrets. To do so would let the cat out of the bag. Don´t forget the numerous witnesses who have since been killed, the new non-disclosre statements the administration forced all to sign.

Rice FTA: “I commented that this was based on what we knew on that morning, was provided to me and my colleagues, and indeed, to Congress, by the intelligence community. And that’s been well validated in many different ways since. And that information turned out, in some respects, not to be 100% correct.”

In some respects? Other than four dead in Benghazi, what part was correct? The talking points haven’t been validated, just the fact that she was given them to read was “validated”.

More parsing of words, more dodging the truth, and more time swept away. That’s their method.

Form a special committee, put her under oath and then prosecute for perjury if she lies. Ask her first who coached her to lie - who directed the cover-up and then pursue that lead.

I thought we had learned the cover-up is worse than the crime, but in this instance I think it is both.

In 2011, Obama said he had given up on white middle-class voters.
Everything he says have been astonishing lies, and he doesn´t care if we know it. His remaining base eats it up and 95% of them would vote for him again.

In a nutshell, it´s stickin´ it to the man.

"We long since learned that senior intelligence officials, including the CIA station chief, had contradicted the demonstration myth before Rice made the rounds of the Sunday talk shows to convince Americans that what had happened was not an al-Qaeda terror attack. " But did Gregory ask her about that? According to the article the follow up question was about the political fallout. Disgraceful!

Susan Rice, another pilot candidate for the yet to be inventedm JOB TRACKER, as we´ve suggested previously several times for liars link Morell and Lois Lerner.
Show their lies, thei taking the Fifth, their stonewal, show their curreny salary, then show their new cushy salary when they are "transferred" to a new softer job at higher "escape" pay as a reward for their on the job obfuscation of the truth.
Government bureaucrats like Susan Rice get themselves into big trouble by lying big time, then get swiftly taken off the job, to appear somewhere else in a new exotic position
It´s just like catholic priests discovered as pervert child mole stirs, once discovered, are scooted off to another parish. Their reward for perversion being transferred to another far off church
So it is with government liars, instant protective transfer to a new job.
JOB TRACKER the next new enterprising start up, can follow each big lie, big stonewall (the same thing as a lie), each corrupt, Schumer like statement with the new
JOB TRACKER label.
To have a JOB TRACKER label attached to your name means there is at least one or more televised, recorded moments for all to see, where a Susan Rice, a Hilary Clinton was LYING ON RECORD.

On the Black History Month bill board at my work they have several noted Black people´s pictures posted. We have outstanding idividuals like Dr Ben Carson,SC Justice Clarence Thomas, Harriett Tubman and Frederick Douglas. Then we have dullards like Oprah Winfrey, John Conyers, Jessie Jackson and you guessed it Susan Rice. Everytime I look at her picture Benghazi flares up and I have to walk away. This woman is a pathetic, self serving, leftist harpy who doesn´t sound too bright depsite her education. Of course a hack like her has no regrets about anything she´s done. In a just world this doofus would be made to first defend herself against questions buy the four Americans that died that day in Libya and then be lead way in handcuffs. Her present position like her last one is a joke but then again the whole Obamanation is a joke.

Completely misses what’s happening.

Remember that television show where they put secret video cameras in the kitchen and caught the appliance repair guy on tape deliberately breaking something and then calling the homeowner in to show them what the problem was? Even when he is shown the video of him breaking it, he stands there and denies it. While the tape is running. “No I didn’t.” Looking the TV guy right in the face and lying. No admission. No apology. No regret. It used to be called sociopathy. Not any more.

Postmodernism. No right or wrong, black or white, citizen or non-citizen, moral or immoral, man or woman, mother or father, truth or lie, God or man. Everything is shades of gray. So we get 56 gender classifications, a family defined as whatever random group lives together, “truth” is whatever narrative serves your interests, no mother and father but “a village,” a half-black man as the first BLACK president, and no God because we can all become LIKE gods.

You’d better get used to it because it is the dominant philosophy of the elite. It’s not just what’s for breakfast, but for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and bedtime snack. Watch TV, a movie, read a magazine or newspaper. It’s a steady diet of postmodernism, and they are relentless in force feeding it to us.

Me, I smell brimstone. I also take secret comfort in knowing that every computer and smart phone they type it on is binary. Hah!

- If she stands by her words then why did she disappear for a year and a half until the heat wore off and memories fade?

- If she stands by her words then why did she not repeat the 5 show circuit yesterday? Only the friendly confines of NBC??? LOL.

- Three things immediately suspicious at the time of her 5 show Full Ginsberg...
---- There was no outcry, no big demand for a big deal 5 show appearances in the first place, UNLESS you wanted to affirmatively step up and get your version of the truth out there.
---- She carefully used the words ´´our current assessment´´ in those appearances which immediately begged the conclusion that that ´´assessment´´ would change. When I heard those words, carefully repeated, I immediately thought, ´´What´s she up to???´´
---- If the administration wanted this 5 show hastened flourish of tour, then why was it not the Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton that did the grand tour???

This regime is all about fooling the people, manipulating the people, and ultimately controlling the people in order to get and increase their POWER. Dealing straight forwardly with the people would get them thrown out of office for their policies and failures, and not get them elected or reelected in the first place. So they lie.

She´s as unfamiliar with work as she is with the truth.

What qualifies this hermetically sealed wonk to represent the will of the nation abroad? Our ´diplomats´ are literally our most out of touch citizens.

USAID documents cite Hillary

Washington Times, by Guy Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/20/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

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

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. 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. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

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

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

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

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

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 Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

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

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
