‘Danged if I know’: Susan Rice seems
to scoff at Benghazi probe question

Fox News, by Catherine Herridge

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 5/15/2014 5:15:56 PM

National Security Adviser Susan Rice, at a foreign policy lunch on Wednesday, seemed to scoff at a question on whether a select committee investigation on Benghazi would reveal new evidence. "Danged if I know," Rice said, to audience laughter. "I mean honestly, the administration has produced, I think, 25,000 pages of documents. ... It´s hard to imagine what further will come of yet another committee. What I think about and focus on as the national security adviser is what we must do with Congress to increase our security of our embassies and facilities around the world." She was addressing the

The Sad Life of Sergeant Franklin Rock
PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez    Original Article
Posted By: Hazymac- 6/25/2014 10:54:33 PM     Post Reply
The classic comic book hero Sgt. Franklin John Rock eventually died, according to the canon, in the European Theater of Operation “on the last day of the war by the last enemy bullet fired”. (Snip) The good news is that nobody calls “Obama to the front” any more. Poland grudgingly says the US is “still” and important ally, though it’s foreign minister candidly called its alliance under the Obama administration “worthless”. Japan is re-arming. Angela and Francois are dealing with Vladimir while John Kerry begs the Kurds to save Iraq. The reason nobody asks Obama to rush forward is everybody

There are two sorts of stock human dramas that play out in every age of history. The first concerns people who were once rich but are now discovering they are poor. The second is their opposite; people who were once poor who suddenly realize they are rich. Years ago there were riveting accounts in a Manila newspaper about a man, whose surname was a byword for inherited wealth, pathetically resisting eviction from his ancestral home. The man — who gave his occupation as artist — sat disconsolate in the driveway of his former home, surrounded by his books, records and memorabilia, refusing the court order to leave until hunger and the

Historians commonly date the birth of Western civilization from the Greek development of mathematics. Greek mathematics was first point of view able to regard the world as potentially comprehensible. (Snip) The Boko Haram’s AK-47s; al-Qaeda’s hijacked airliners, the humvees of ISIS, and perhaps the dirty nuclear bomb of some Jihadi militant — are objects put to creative use by people none of whom can build them from first principles. But they’ve concluded as did the Romans and Caliphs before them, that they don’t need to understand these objects in principle. They can regard these marvels as placed in their path

Hope vs Experience

Samuel Johnson once observed that second marriages were the “triumph of hope over experience”. Johnson might just as well have been talking about life in general. (Snip) But it’s not as if Obama has forgotten Russia. He’s apparently come up with a sure-fire scheme of reducing tensions with Moscow. “U.S. Eliminates Multi-Warheads on All Ground-Based Nuclear Missiles,” says the Global Security Newswire. That should mollify Putin and signal that America has no aggressive intentions. That’s his style. Obama likes to telegraph inaction. He ruled out military action in Ukraine, ruled out ground troops in Iraq and is now ruling out

Michelle Wie Wins U.S. Women’s
Open, Capturing First Major

Michelle Wie won the United States Women’s Open at Pinehurst No. 2 by two strokes on Sunday to capture the first major title of her career. Wie shot a final round 70 to finish at two-under-par 278 to beat out Stacy Lewis, who posted a 66. The title is the first for Wie, 24, a fixture on the United States Golf Association scene since qualifying for the Women’s Amateur at age 10. Her best Open finish was a tie for third in 2006, but she had not cracked the top 10 in nine previous starts. Twice she withdrew (2007 and

No Pepsi, Coke -- the brand

Myself, I’m a Diet Coke guy, and I can’t even picture myself switching to Pepsi. It’s almost pathological for me, part of my world view for some reason. Maybe you have the same rock-solid brand affinity for Pampers vs. Huggies, or Crest vs. Colgate. This thought came to mind as I was totally geeking out and reading some social psychology research about why people will stick to certain beliefs, even if presented with facts that prove their preconceived notions were incorrect. Turns out, we humans just don’t change our minds much, no matter how we like to think of ourselves

Stovetop Expresso

The way a stove top expresso maker works is by heating one chamber full of water and letting steam push coffee into the relative vacuum of another. (Snip) Will the fighting become general? Perhaps the better question is to ask why it should not become general for the same reasons that Slaughter already described. Whether in Eastern Europe or Asia, the same practice of neglect can be observed. In each place Obama has lit a pressure chamber and the steam has to go somewhere. In he Middle East, Syria/Iraq has now become the steam chamber, and if there is any

Great white shark numbers

PORTLAND, Maine — A report that scientists are calling one of the most comprehensive studies of great white sharks finds that their numbers are surging in the ocean off the Eastern U.S. and Canada after decades of decline — bad news if you´re a seal, but something experts say shouldn´t instill fear in beachgoers this summer. The study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, published this month in the journal PLOS ONE, says the population of the notoriously elusive fish has climbed since about 2000 in the western North Atlantic. The scientists behind the study attribute the resurgence to

“I want you to drain them of their morale,” the robed man said. (Snip) Having proved to all that “nothing is worth dying for” it is all too easy to add “including anything Obama tells you to die for”. By converting the US Ship of State into a clown car Obama made himself a clown. And that is how Obama is being treated. He’s excluded from talks between Putin, Merkel and Hollande over the latest crisis in Ukraine though doubtless he’s being kept informed on the golf course. Obama is out of the loop as Leader of the Free World

TALLAHASSEE — Since leaving the governor’s mansion in 2010, Democrat Charlie Crist has more than doubled his net worth, with much of the money coming from prestigious positions and consulting contracts he received from large political donors. Some were helping Crist build his net worth while knowing that the Republican-turned-independent-turned-Democrat likely would run again for governor. In 2010, Crist listed his net worth at $466,063, a number that has jumped to $1.2 million, according to financial disclosure forms he filed Tuesday when submitting his official paperwork to get on the ballot as a candidate for governor. Crist said it

NBC’s Chuck Todd looks at the president’s polling and concludes it is disastrous for Obama, though not necessarily for for the Democratic Party. It is one of a series of messages disassociating the fortunes of the liberal enterprise from the collapsing presidency. The new point of departure is cooperating with Iran. (Snip) As noted in a previous post, while there may not be enough votes in a Democratic Senate to threaten the president with an impeachment conviction now — that can change in two months. For where there’s a storm in politics, there’s a Jonah. Everybody needs a Fall Guy.

A week after an NBC News poll showed that the American people had lost faith in Obama´s competence and ability to lead, a new CBS News/New York Times poll has even worse news for a president embattled by his own incompetence, arrogance, and failed policies. In just one month, the president´s job approval rating has shifted a full 9 points against him. Though Obama was still upside on approval by 5 points (43-48%) back in May, he now faces a 14 point deficit of 40-54%. In just one month, disapproval of Obama´s foreign policy has skyrocketed a full 10 points

With a surprisingly wide margin of victory, Congressman James Lankford won the Oklahoma Republican U.S. Senate primary, defeating former Speaker of the State House of Representatives T.W. Shannon by 23 points and avoiding a runoff election. Lankford now becomes the prohibitive favorite to replace outgoing Senator Tom Coburn, who is retiring with two years remaining in his current term. This was a very different race from the one taking place in Mississippi. Despite negative ads run against Lankford by conservative groups, the Oklahoma contest was not an example of an “establishment” Republican or RINO versus a Tea Party candidate. In

Women vote Democrat because they are smarter, Obama said to a White House audience Monday afternoon. He made the remark at the end of a talk at the White House Summit on Working Families. “Somebody asked: ‘Well, it’s well-known that women are more likely to vote for Democrats,’ to which I said, women are smarter,” Obama said. “This is true.” The rest of Obama’s talk centered on paid maternity leave, a minimum wage of $10.10, flexibility in the workplace, and access to childcare. He blamed Congress for moving slowly after he asked it to raise the minimum wage and when

Thad Cochran’s political resurrection began with a campaign shakeup and ended with a Hail Mary television ad. Just three weeks ago, in the dead of night on June 3, the Mississippi senator’s staff sat shaken and dejected, crestfallen at the results of a primary that deprived the six-term incumbent of an electoral majority. With Cochran forced into a runoff fight against an aggressive and energetic challenger, a dark mood shadowed his backers in Washington and Mississippi.Yet almost immediately, the Cochran coalition began bouncing back. Even on that gloomy night of June 3, Cochran adviser Stuart Stevens was insisting to staffers: “We’re

Two years after activists for same-sex marriage obtained the confidential tax return and donor list of a national group opposed to redefining marriage, the Internal Revenue Service has admitted wrongdoing and agreed to settle the resulting lawsuit. The Daily Signal has learned that, under a consent judgment today, the IRS agreed to pay $50,000 in damages to the National Organization for Marriage as a result of the unlawful release of the confidential information to a gay rights group, the Human Rights Campaign, that is NOM’s chief political rival. “Congress made the disclosure of confidential tax return information a serious matter for

After discussing the various issues facing working mothers today, Roberts asked the first lady when she thinks it will be time for the United States to elect its first female president. “That should happen as soon as possible,” Obama said, to cheers from the audience. “I think this country is ready.

Krauthammer said that things are pretty bad, but noted, “There’s a big difference between decline as a condition and decline as a choice. What we have with Obama is a president choosing decline.” He continued, “We are in a position to dominate again, but we have a president who doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism, American greatness, and he has chosen for America to retreat from the Middle East, to not lift a finger in places like Ukraine, basically to make us one nation among others.” Krauthammer said Obama is comfortable with

National conservative groups are angry after incumbent Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran pulled off a victory in the state’s GOP run-off — likely because of his campaign’s outreach to Democratic voters. “It’s disgraceful that self-described GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the Chamber of Commerce and the NRSC would champion a campaign platform of pork barrel spending and insider deal-making, while recruiting Democrats to show up at the polls,” Matt Kibbe of FreedomWorks said after the results came in. Tuesday’s closely-watched run-off came after conservative state Sen. Chris McDaniel edged Cochran in votes in the initial election earlier this month.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has had a rough time of it ever since she asserted that both she and her husband were “dead broke” and “struggled” after leaving the White House in 2001. “A few weeks before they left the White House, the Clintons were able to muster a cash down payment of $855,000 and secure a $1.995 million mortgage,” Politifact observed. “This hardly fits the common meaning of ‘dead broke.’” Clinton might have taken the public backlash over this minor gaffe in stride, but she didn’t.

Given the bitter nature of the runoff in Mississippi, this probably surprises no one, but it’s also unlikely to produce any further surprises. After a narrow loss to incumbent Senator Thad Cochran, Chris McDaniel refused to concede last night. Instead, he blasted Cochran’s GOTV strategy and promised a challenge to the results: State Sen. Chris McDaniel will challenge the results of the Tuesday runoff election where 41-year incumbent Sen.

Apparently because he doesn´t get out of the White House enough (?) -- or have enough to do? -- President Obama will travel to Minnesota on Thursday to "spend a day with Rebekah," described by the White House as a "hardworking mom from Minneapolis," who wrote to the president to tell him "how much harder it´s become to get ahead and do right by her family." When the president receives letters like Rebekah´s, he "makes notes in the margins, and sits down to reply personally," the White House said. This time, he´s made plans to meet with Rebekah -- on Thursday --
