PHNOM PENH, Cambodia- President Barack Obama is sending Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to the Middle East in hopes that she can help mediate an end to bloody conflict in the region. A deputy White House national security adviser says Clinton will depart Tuesday from Cambodia, where she had accompanied Obama on a visit to Southeast Asia. Clinton will begin her Mideast diplomacy by meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem. She also will meet with Palestinian officials in Ramallah before heading to Cairo to meet with leaders in Egypt.
Just as well she is off to the Middle East. Judging by the photos of the "preezy of the united steezy" groping every female "leader" in Burma, Hillary is an annoying third wheel on his excellent adventure to Asia.
Yeah, that´s the ticket. Send Mrs.Clinton. I am sure she can handle this assignment as well as she handled the lack of security in Banghazi. A Republican SOS would have already been fired and be facing criminal charges. Does everyone get an Out Of Jail Free card when they register as a democrat or are they just reserved for the truly elite.
He needs to check out her picture on Drudge this morning. She looks so bored. After all where is the value in what she does. Never mind four American patriots were murdered on her watch - she wants to retire with all her millions (maybe billions?) in Australia where she won´t be taxed to death.
I wonder what American threat or carrot she carries with her. She has some instructions and I would love to know what they are. You can be sure, they will not be in Israel´s best interests.I just hope they will not be powerful enough to sway Netanyaheu.
If Mizzuz Clinton is going to be in the area, the Israelis had better make sure the Iron Dome is working. Of course, with her diplomatic expertise, Mizzuz probably thinks the Iron Dome is a new hairdo.
Ditto #28 ~ Israel is a sovereign nation and does not require our permission to do ANYTHING it deems imperative for their security. But I am looking forward to those photos of HRC dodging missiles as she waddles down the tarmac. Note to HRC ~ hey babe if your plane has a shower (or even a sink)a little ´Herbal Essence´ wouldn´t hurt. Does Huma give ´good shampoo´?
Notice that every time a crisis or incident occurs President Obama always delegates an individual to handle whatever has happened.
Then if that individual is shown by the liberal media to have succeeded, reality aside, Obama will then take credit, but if the individual cannot be shown to have succeeded, under the bus he or she goes.
So Obama sends one on the Arab (terrorist) best friend to tell Israel to just let their people die instead of defending themselves. I like the idea already expressed that they should bulldoze Gaza to the bedrock and then declare it a free fire zone. Shoot anything that moves in it. The Arabs cause their own problems; they let the wackjobs shoot rockets at the Israelis any do nothing to stop them and then act surprise when the IDF blows it up.
You just can’t fix stupid, you just need to eliminate it
She won´t be there to "mediate" anything, her mission is to demand of Israel that they stop the self defense measures because hamas is running scared. Barry promised to side with the muslims in any conflict but he has proven himself impotent in that job also. This mission has the makings of a huge failure for the 0bama administration but then, what else is new?

It´s real simple. It took a few days, but Hillary will tell Bibi that new arms supplies and parts which come from the US will not be forthcoming unless Israel conforms with a US-brokered ´peace.´ The Muslims will get billions in aid. End story.
I sincerely hope that the IDF has plenty of supplies put aside, that they can get parts/ammo through other channels and Bibi tells Hillary to go count every grain of sand in the Negev.
That was my thought---a little more legitimate absence than an Australian wine testing though. And don´t forget, Hillary had a great aunt who married a Jew (even though she screamed at Bebee Netanyahu for an hour on the phone a few months ago.)
Hill will probably head straight to Israel because they are kind enough to not sneer in her face for being a female. This time the Israelis have the upper hand because Hamas is stunned that they wasted most of the missiles and rockets. Congress could have her flown back at any time to testify but why bother when they already know where the fault bucks stop. Besides can barry really go home and face Michelle after his star struck shuffle with the lovely little lady in what he called Burma?
The vast majority of Americans must have the IQ of 80 or below. Every time the US has any sort of majory emergency or calamity dometically or world wide, BO, MO SOS, DOD and numerous unelected and elected decision-making people are out-of-WDC, out of the country or on recess. Does anyone in the federal government who is paid by tax payers actually do any work in the US, other than engage in personal and privately profitable dalliances, with women, men, taxes, gifts, jaunts and junkets?
Why even have a government? Or bother paying taxes? All these grifters do is enjoy lavish vacays, expensive wine and dine, high-price whores, 2nd and 3rd homes in Newport, Bahamas and Zurich, no questions asked for kids and grankids into elite private colleges with 2.0 GPAs, and unbridled inside trader information in market manipulation and massive investor return.
We have lost for some time the "government of the people, for the people and by the people". The adage should be the government takes from the people for the government and by the government.
Regardless of party, who should ever care anymore what they do. They will fleece us blind and spend however they want.
Frankly stop voting, stop working (then you do not have to pay taxes), let your house go into foreclosure and live there for five to eight years without paying anything other than utilities, go on food stamps, get a free phone and minutes, place on any application for any job or school that you are black and get a housing allowance. Let this benevolent government pay for everything. ´Bout time the producers start taking back, rather than giving back.
This was remarked/made fun of this morning on talk radio. The host who is an "independent" said that sending a female SecState to Muslim countries was a joke. The PIAPS is a bigger joke than most being in this position. Bibi is a gentleman and will listen to her but will ultimately do want needs to be done to defend Israel. Abbas is scum and will treat her with all of the respect do a camel flea. This will also keep Hillarious out of the country so that they can come up with story # 5(or is it 6? It´s hard to keep track.) for Benghazi-gate. Is the Huma Weiner going with? Or are they going to send Susan Rice the incompetent with her? Oops can I say that without being called a racist by the ingrates at the CBC. Oh man I´d better watch my six. LAUGH OUT LOUD!
The House on Thursday approved a two-year budget deal that turns off $63 billion in sequester spending cuts, handing a major victory to Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio.). Large majorities in both parties backed the bill in a 332-94 vote. Only 62 Republicans defected despite harsh criticism of the deal by conservative groups that said it did too little to cut spending. Heritage Action, the Club for Growth and other groups said they would negatively score votes in favor of the legislation, but those threats failed to create a stampede against the bill. Instead, members rallied around Boehner, who had strongly pushed
TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Country Music Hall of Fame member and country music legend Ray Price, 87, plans to leave East Texas Medical Center in Tyler on Thursday to go to his home in Mount Pleasant where he will be provided with hospice care. Price, who is best known for his country classics, including Release Me, Crazy Arms and For the Good Times, has been battling pancreatic cancer since 2011. Since then, the disease has spread to his liver, intestines and lungs, even with aggressive treatment. Price and his wife, Janie, who have been married for 45 years, made the
HOUSTON - "Affluenza," the term used by a psychologist to argue that a North Texas teenager from a wealthy family should not be sent to prison for killing four pedestrians while driving drunk, is not a recognized diagnosis and should not be used to justify bad behavior, psychologists said Thursday. The term was popularized in the late 1990s by Jessie O´Neill, the granddaughter of a past president of General Motors, when she wrote the book "The Golden Ghetto: The Psychology of Affluence." It has since been used to describe a condition in which children — generally from richer families —
WASHINGTON — The House moved toward passage of a bipartisan budget accord on Thursday evening that is intended as a truce in the spending battles that have paralyzed Congress for nearly three years, as leaders in both parties sought to marginalize hard-line conservatives opposed to any compromise. With bipartisan support in hand, Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio declared open warfare on the outside conservative groups that have tried to scuttle the budget deal. For the second day in a row, he accused groups like Club for Growth, Heritage Action and Americans for Prosperity of reflexively opposing a reasonable plan
WASHINGTON – The Obama administration moved Thursday to help tens of thousands of sick Americans who have struggled to enroll in health coverage for next year because of problems with the rollout of new insurance marketplaces created by the president’s health law. The Department of Health and Human Services announced that patients who have been enrolled in special insurance plans for consumers denied coverage elsewhere would be able to stay on those plans until the end of January. Nearly 86,000 people are currently in such plans. These state-based plans – known as Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plans – were created by
Wall Street´s third down day in a row pushed stocks to their lowest levels in a month as investors worried that the end may be nearing for the Federal Reserve´s support for the economy. The Fed´s stimulus efforts have been a key factor in the bull market that has pushed the Standard & Poor´s 500 index 25 higher percent this year. Investors know it will end sooner or later. But the timing, and the fallout, are uncertain. Until this month, stocks had risen for eight weeks straight. But stocks posted their biggest declines in five weeks on Wednesday, and dropped
Approximately 800 school children waving American flags greeted the Wreaths Across America convoy at their school on Wednesday in Middletown, N.J., for a wreath laying ceremony and tribute honoring World War II veterans who fought in the Battle of the Bulge. The WAA caravan included over 10 trailer trucks filled with wreaths. The group is laying wreaths to honor and remember the country’s veterans during its weeklong journey, which began in Maine on Dec. 7. Its final stop will be at Arlington National Cemetery on Dec. 14, where at least 100,000 wreaths will be laid on the graves of veterans.
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
