Clinton: Benghazi probes ´more

Associated Press, by Ken Thomas*

Original Article

WASHINGTON— Hillary Rodham Clinton said in an interview Monday that she feels emboldened to run for president because of Republican criticism of her handling of the deadly 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya. In an interview with ABC News, Clinton said the Benghazi inquiry from Republicans gives her a greater incentive to run for president because she considers the multiple investigations into the attacks "minor league ball" for a country of the United States´ stature. But she said she´s still undecided. "It´s more of a reason to run, because I do not believe our great country should be playing minor

Shameless.
The Butcher of Benghazi doubles down on her lies,dereliction of duty and cover up in the terrorist attack and murder of the Benghazi Four on American soil on 9/11.
The 5 pm DC time call came and where was she?
Why did she deny Amb Stevens more security and actually reduce his security?
The Obama Clinton Cabal stands with the Islamist Terrorists and not Americans.

...a good way to bluff through the question of her role for now. After a good, thorough and honest investigation she just may think otherwise...

...with more than two years left of Barry, the Dems have got lots of time for eating their own...

Hillary, look in the eyes of the parents that lost sons that day and tell them it´s minor league ball. Would you feel the same if it were Chelsea and your grandbaby?

By the way - where are the survivors playing minor league ball right now?

Hillary Clinton’s hardest words:
I was wrong
Politico, by Maggie Haberman    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/14/2014 6:28:36 PM     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton’s out-of-the-gate stumbles in interviews this week reflect an issue she’s faced repeatedly during her political career – defensiveness with the media, and difficulty acknowledging a mistake. By most measures, Clinton handled her hour-long interview with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer well – she was tonally on-point about Monica Lewinsky and effectively handled a question about her age. She gently mocked Karl Rove for insinuations about her health. But in the current media environment, it’s the gaffes that stand out. And her clunky response on why she and her husband have made exorbitant amounts in speaking fees – and her tense

Barack and Michelle Obama´s weekend visit to Palm Springs, California, started out with a wardrobe malfunction for the first lady - but luckily the president was there to save the day. The first couple were stepping off Air Force One at the Palm Springs International Airport on a balmy Friday evening when a gust of wind nearly blew up the voluminous skirt of Mrs Obama´s green-and-black summer frock. The 50-year-old first lady was photographed struggling to tame the billowing fabric, with a relaxed Mr Obama walking alongside her with a rueful smile on his wife.Eventually, the commander-in-chief came to his

President Barack Obama called on Americans coming of age to demand that politicians respond more aggressively to climate change, comparing those skeptical about man-caused alterations to the environment to a belief that the moon is “made of cheese.” In a commencement address today to graduates of the University of California at Irvine, Obama delivered one of his feistiest critiques of lawmakers who object to environmental regulations he’s pushing that are aimed at reducing carbon emissions. Obama, in his prepared remarks, said rising temperatures and sea levels and intensifying storm patterns define “one of the most significant long-term challenges that our

U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel ordered the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush to the Persian Gulf on Saturday to “protect” American lives and interests during terror flare-ups in several Iraqi towns, the Pentagon said in a statement Saturday. The order gives President Barack Obama “additional flexibility” in case military measures are required to safeguard Americans in Iraq, said Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby. Sunni insurgents have taken over several Iraqi towns and are threatening to move south to the capital of Baghdad, causing more than half a million residents to flee. On Friday, Obama said the

Nearly 240 years ago, a group of riflemen grabbed their muskets and left their families to stand against oppression and win the United States’ freedom, Lt. Gen. Mark Milley, III Corps and Fort Hood commander, told a group gathered Thursday at Military Plaza in downtown Killeen. On Saturday, the Army will celebrate its 239th birthday, and hundreds of local residents filled the streets for an early celebration with dignitaries from Killeen, Fort Hood and surrounding communities. “Through it all, the American Army has never wavered, not once.

LOS ANGELES— Oil industry analysts are warning a brewing civil war between Islamic militants in Iraq could potentially send gas prices soaring here in the Southland. KNX 1070´s Pete Demetriou reports the price of crude oil has shot up to $107 per barrel – the highest in 10 months – on reports that soldiers with the al-Qaeda-inspired Islamic State of Iraq and Syria captured two towns in an ethnically mixed province northeast of Baghdad.

HOUSTON, Texas—The bodies of illegal immigrants are routinely found dead near Falfurrias, Texas in Brooks County. Texas citizens and the local sheriff are organizing a ‘rescue posse’ to make sure the thousands of children illegally crossing the Texas border with Mexico are not dying in the area. Though Falfurrias sits approximately 85 miles from the border, there is a notorious Border Patrol checkpoint in the area and illegal immigrants routinely exit vehicles before the checkpoint and attempt to circumvent law enforcement efforts. The terrain and the heat often prove too much for the travelers and their bodies are often found

Ankara- Iran could contemplate cooperating with its old adversary the United States on restoring security to Iraq if it saw Washington confronting "terrorist groups in Iraq and elsewhere", Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday. Rouhani, a pragmatist who has presided over a thaw in Iran´s relations with the West, also said Tehran was unlikely to send forces to Iraq but stood ready to provide help within the framework of international law. Baghdad has not requested such assistance, he added. Shi´ite Muslim Iran has been alarmed by the seizure this week of several major northern Iraqi towns by Sunni Islamist

Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city, has long been hard for the central government to control because of its combustible mix of Arabs and Kurds. The first time I visited Mosul was in August 2003 when a tenuous calm was maintained by the 101st Airborne Division. Its commander, a then-obscure two-star general named David Petraeus, had on his own initiative opened the Syrian border to trade, struck deals with Syria and Turkey to provide badly needed electricity, restored telephone service, and held elections to elect local leaders. Along the way he also managed to kill Saddam Hussein’s poisonous offspring Uday and Qusay.

Columbia University in New York City will make a bid to build the Obama presidential library on its Manhattanville campus in West Harlem, where the structure would be a cornerstone of the university’s $6.3 billion expansion into the economically depressed neighborhood, a university source confirmed. The source said that the university planned to vigorously pursue the library as part the campus expansion at 130th Street and Broadway. President Barack Obama earned his undergraduate degree from Columbia in 1983. Like the University of Chicago, Columbia has put together a bid designed to be an economic engine in communities that lack development and

Eliana’s report is just stunning — no matter how many times similar “mishaps” have occurred in this administration. The IRS, like other government agencies, has lots of reasons to maintain emails, so I’m curious about whether they will be similarly informing courts, Congress, litigants, FOIA petitioners, and other people and bodies they must periodically make disclosures and reports to that they’ve lost nearly two years’ worth of agency communications? Or was this just one of those highly, highly unusual computer crashes that affects only the email account of Lois Lerner and any executive branch official with whom she happened to

BOSTON — Once fearing he would be viewed as "a loser for life" if he failed to win the presidency, Mitt Romney is trying to re-emerge as a force in Republican politics. Romney has quietly sought kingmaker status in the GOP´s fight for the Senate majority this fall and its quest to retake the White House in 2016. The effort at revival is fueling whispers about a third presidential run. But those closest to Romney suggest he´s more interested in shaping party politics by lending his name and record-breaking fundraising machine to what he considers the next generation of electable conservatives.

The Attorney General of the United States told a homosexual advocacy group on Tuesday night that the Boy Scouts of America "preserves and perpetuates the worst kind of stereotypes" by refusing to allow homosexuals to serve as Boy Scout troop leaders. "Today, courageous lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals routinely put their lives on the line as members of America´s armed services," Holder told Lambda Legal Tuesday night. "And if these men and women are fit for military service, then surely they are fit to mentor, to teach, and to serve as role models for the leaders of future generations."

Chelsea Clinton earned an annual salary of $600,000 at NBC News before switching to a month-to-month contract earlier this year, sources with knowledge of the agreement told POLITICO. Clinton, who joined NBC News as a “special correspondent” in November 2011, was up for renewal or non-renewal this year. Instead, the sources said, the network decided to keep her on the payroll on a month-to-month basis so that the two parties could sever ties if Clinton’s mother, Hillary, runs for president. Kamyl Bazbaz, a spokesperson for the 34-year-old Clinton, referred POLITICO to NBC News, which declined to discuss Clinton’s contract. “We don’t comment

She also referred to Rove’s questions about her health. “They are trying constantly to, you know, raise false canards, you know, plant, you know, false information, and that´s what they do,” Clinton replied, accusing both Rove and Drudge for not wanting to debate the "real issues." “They want people to get
