The new year began not with a cannonball off the “fiscal cliff” but with an outbreak of conspiratorial cynicism. This time it’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose fall and concussion, followed by a blood clot between her brain and skull, has prompted an embarrassment of theories. The gist: That woman will do anything to avoid testifying about Benghazi. Several commentators on the right opined via Twitter and TV, those most deadly hosts for the parasites of rumor and innuendo, that Clinton was faking her concussion to duck out on her appearance
If PIAPS isn´t tough enough to play with the big boys, she needs to take her ball and go on home.
She is Secretary of State. She doesn´t need Kathleen Parker or anyone else to defend her. Either she is tough enough to do that for herself, or she isn´t tough enough to be in that position -- or, God forbid -- ever as president.
I don´t know if this is real or a stunt to get out of testifying, but, in either case, by Kathleen Parker acting like PIAPS needs defending, she is basically admitting that PIAPS isn´t strong or tough enough to do the job.
What if she had been on the flight to Iran which crash landed and suffered a concussion from the rough landing? It would have been divine justice or karma if she died after attempting to broker a deal to terrorists, after allowing terrorists to kill 4 Americans working under her despite pleas for help. May not be compassionate but I think Hillary really has blood on her hands. She has compounded the wrong by letting those 4 get reshuffled while pretending to mete punishment to these supposedly scapegoated functionaries.
The Secret Service recorded this conversation: Hillary: "What would you do if I died? Would you get married again? BILL: "Definitely not!" HILLARY: "Why not? Don´t you like being married?" BILL: "Of course I do." HILLARY: "Then why wouldn´t you remarry?" BILL: "Okay, okay, I´d get married again." HILLARY: "You would?" (with a hurt look) BILL: (makes audible groan) HILLARY: "Would you live in our house?" BILL: "Sure, it´s a great house." HILLARY: "Would you sleep with her in our bed?" BILL: "Where else would we sleep?" HILLARY: "Would you take her golfing with you? BILL: "Yes, those are always good times." HILLARY: "Would you let her use my clubs? BILL: "No, she´s left-handed." HILLARY: -- silence -- BILL: "Damn."
With her embittered ´nowadays everyone´s a pundit´ declaration, short, fat, stumpy Parker is clearly concerned about others stepping on her turf. She thinks only she should be ´entitled´ to be a pundit, and others must be silenced.
Wake up, dumpy blonde Parker: It´s the Internet Age and the msm is facing competition because of its dereliction of duty.
She IS dumpy - I saw a picture of her in a polka dot outfit back when she was sucking up to Obama as one of his hand-prized picked conservative journalists in the early days of his presidency. Obama was taking her around and working mightily to impress her, which he obviously did. She was short, fat, dumpy and had the look of a squishy chew toy. Don´t believe her photoshopped photo in the column. She´s squishy fat and needs to watch her carb count.
If I was the head of a gov´t dept. that was coming under withering fire and I did nothing wrong,I would crawl over hot coals to testify and clear my name.Hot coals can´t get Clinton out of her hospital bed.
Parker became an overnight sensation with the left when she trashed Palin,she basked in the glory of helping to bring her down.Now she´s going back to the same crowd of morons who idolized her for doing that. She was totally dreadful on the short lived show with Spitzer,thinking she was cute with the librarian look.
I guess Parker has no intellectual curiosity about this whole Benghazi situation from start to finish. How can the state dept.take the whole blame with it´s head snake ducking all the liability about it?
How does the Hildebeast like it when the shoe´s on the other foot. I say just deserts. She´s nothing more than an incompetent liar whose sole role as SoS was to make history on the most number of countries visited.

It may have been a blow to the head in an attempt to shut Hillary up so she couldn´t crawl from under the bus she is going under to save the won. It is an insult to real ladies to call the tramps voting parts ´lady parts´.
Have any of the lap doggies covering Hillary explained why, when she lives and passed out in D.C. she´s shipped to a NY hospital. Could it be that the Clinton´s control the press offices at Columbia Pres. hopital better than in D.C. There is something weird about this whole thing.
Parker is nothing more than someone who sits at home reading the paper and news blogs to then write her opinion pieces. She is no more informed than the people who post on this site--probably much less so in many cases.
What Parker fails to point out in her smarmy holier-than-thou little article is that both the Clintons have a long history of being liars and when you are a known liar it comes back to bite you even if you happen to be telling the truth. There is still no real proof of any of this other than the word of her toadies at the State Department who say what they are told to say.
It´s always the same story; nasty insults thrown at conservatives daily with not a peep from those like Parker; a little heat thrown at Democrats met with shock. Conservatives are accused of the most dastardly acts from the floor of both houses and the Whitehouse and its just politics. Give the same to the Democrats and it is just intolerable. It keeps the onus on Republicans to stay on the defensive as the party that wants to throw grandma out on the street and starve children. Parker´s piece is just her contribution to keep that label going so she will be invited to the right cocktail parties.
That does it. Of course this blood clot will ´dramatically´ affect Hillary´s memory and she will not remember anything prior to the election in November. I was wondering how she (and Obama) were going to get out of this one. They´re so slick - so clever - so sleazy and inventive.
Good points #43 on the medical commute to New York. The DC commies have a rolodex for different occasions: They dial up Wesley Clark when they need a liberal minded general´s opinion; dial up New York Columbia Pres hospital when they need medical cover; dial up Elijah Cummings when they need some racial spin to guilt the opposition into caving to their point of view; dial up Keith Ellison when a muslim American perspective is needed for their pro-Sharia propaganda, etc.
People who like the sauce, fall a lot- breaking bones, hitting heads, etc. This is one´s first thought when it comes to Hillary. The second is avoidance of unpleasantness, The Benghazi inquisition looms, big time damage to reputation prevails. The last possibilities are the subdural hematoma, brain tumor, aneurysm. We have our pick. If it is one of the latter, forgive me for thinking the former.
Yes, any character problems that Hillary has, she created herself. She hid important files that had information about her fraudulent Whitewater case, and she then finds them months later. She lied under oath; she protected her lying husband. She did it all to herself.
I still suspect complications from facelift. It´s a serious surgery with lots of possible complications a few days later. Even the "plane crash" story would make a good coverup to explain bruises. Time will tell.
Like I care. After all the c--- the Clinton´s pulled re: women he bedded or raped or seduced, and all the Arkansas land deals and all the rest...... PLUS I am so sick of hearing about what a great secretary of state she has been, as the Middle East falls in flames, the Pakistani Dr. who helped find Bin Laden gets sent up for 30 years and Netanyahu gets savaged........WHAT great secretary of state?
Yeah,the life lift goes to the musles that have a nexus behind the ear,andthere surgon yses achook to snag em and pull them back and tie them off.It does occur behind the ear. Maybe she had a fight with someone and she got brained with a lamp ashtray or an award.
Remember when Hillary said: We shall have to take things away from you for the common good? Well Obama is doing that so that when Hillary gets elected she won´t have to. George Soros controls both. If accomplishment of your goals means success-then Obama is the most successful President in History.
my favoritem part is about those people in the hinterland and the "news" they consume. scare quotes around news so even the thickest reader will get the point. oh kathleen we know you are among our intellectual and moral superiors
Mrs Clinton hade a lot of year end financial business to clean up before the democrat tax increase went into effect. She learned from her past experience in 1990 when she had to shelter her ill gotten gains before Slick Willie´s retroactive tax took effect.
Parker makes a valid point about the bipartisan vitriolic nature of our present political system. This thread validates that. " The rush to character assassination seems to be our only bipartisan imperative and is a blight on our political system. In this brooding age of superstition and portent, every misspoken word is a lie, every human error a hanging offense." I believed in the beginning, like many , that there was something funky about her stomach virus excuse. The medical information released by the State Dept has been vague and their refusal to give more detailed information, including the exact date on which she fell , has fueled doubt. However, her doctors did issue a statement in early December , barely reported , that she was dehydrated and fell. How she was allowed to get to this state of severe dehydration and why she was left alone to fall , is still a mystery. The physicians are not lying about the clot and her anticoagulant treatment, but, I believe they are couching their statements and only releasing partial information.
Relax. The pubs have already said that confirmation hearings associated with Lurch´s nomination as secretary of state will not move forward until after Hillary testifies regardless if she testifies as SoS or as an unemployed civilian.
Since Hillary´s drunken stupor and fall from drinking too much fine beer and eating too many corn chips in Columbian bars, Moochelle can now dream of running for President in 2016. I am sure that Moochelle will get 96% of the feminists and 100% of the dumb lesbian vote.
Kathleen is from my neck of the woods and we use to be proud of her. Then she was the first "conservative" to eviserate Palin and kept at it. So, I realized what an empty person she was. Believe she got an award for bringing down Palin, just like Katie Couric got an award for doing the same thing. These two women are below all respect.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has no system in place to prevent fraud when individuals apply for tax credits under Obamacare, according to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). The IG said in an audit released Tuesday that the IRS has no plan to manage, monitor, or mitigate fraud risk when processing premium tax credits available under the Affordable Care Act (ACA). “The ACA Program has not yet completed a fraud mitigation strategy,” the audit found. “It is important for the IRS to thoroughly consider fraud threats and risks that could impact new ACA systems.” Politico reports: The
Around 100,000 Americans successfully signed up for health insurance in November through the troubled federal online marketplace, HealthCare.gov, a person familiar with the preliminary data confirmed to ABC News. The figure reflects a surge in enrollment as software and hardware fixes to the site were made over the course of the month. In October, only 26,000 people could successfully enroll in Obamacare plans, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. "We´ve been working 24/7 to make improvements, and more consumers are successfully shopping online and enrolling in a health plan each week," Health and Human Services Secretary
NEW HAVEN >> The jail cell death last weekend of Yale University professor Samuel See, known as a brilliant writer and rising star in academia, has shaken up the tight-knit college community. Now adding to the mystery of his unexpected death are apparent connections between the online profiles of See and several escort service websites that include a cache of sexually explicit photos. At least four websites advertising male escort services included a phone number connected to See. The website Ryan Cochran Escort Services includes the same phone number listed on an order of protection filed against See in September.
For many Ann Arborites, Thanksgiving is a day devoted to giving thanks, spending time with family, eating turkey and watching the Detroit Lions. This year, retail giants want that to change. (Snip) The early openings change the game for retail giants looking to boost profits through aggressive holiday sales. It also means millions of retail employees in the U.S. are working on the holiday, and it poses the question to consumers: Is a bargain on a 70-inch television or an Apple iPad worth ditching Thanksgiving dinner? “You couldn’t pay me to stand in a line in the cold on Thanksgiving
Macy´s Inc and a slew of other U.S. retailers are opening on Thanksgiving for the first time ever in a bare-knuckled brawl for a bigger slice of overall holiday sales. But it might not be so easy to lure most Americans from their turkey and football - particularly if the weather is foul. Department store rivals Kohl´s Corp and J.C. Penney Co Inc led a string of Thanksgiving opening announcements after Macy´s said it would open its U.S. stores on the popular holiday, ending a 155-year tradition. Sales trends, survey results and an online "Save Thanksgiving" backlash suggest that shoppers
The captain of a Greenpeace ship released on bail after two months of detention in a Russian prison following an Arctic protest said he and his fellow activists remain in shock at their treatment. American Peter Willcox, who was also in charge of Greenpeace’s Rainbow Warrior when it was sunk in Auckland in 1985 by a bomb planted by the French intelligence service, said the organization again found itself in the crosshairs of a government bent on throttling the environmental group. “There is a similarity between the two cases,” with both the French and Russian governments targeting Greenpeace to prevent
DENVER - 9Wants to Know has learned federal investigators believe Colombian drug cartels have taken root within Colorado´s medical marijuana industry. On Thursday, federal agents from the Drug Enforcement Agency and Internal Revenue Service executed search warrants on several medical marijuana shops in Denver and Boulder. One of those shops is VIP Cannabis, a shop near Federal Boulevard and Alameda Avenue. Numerous calls into VIP Cannabis by 9Wants to Know have not been returned. While the warrants and other documents relating to the investigation are under court-ordered seal, sources spoke on the condition of anonymity to 9Wants to Know.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
