The pundits making a mockery of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s head injuries ought to be ashamed of themselves. These commentators contend Clinton is offering excuses to avoid tough questions over the deadly September attack on a U.S. consulate office in Libya. (Snip) On Dec. 17, Fox News contributor John Bolton accused Clinton of feigning "diplomatic illness." One day later, the New York Post published a headline calling her condition a "head fake."On the air, Charles Krauthammer and Sean Hannity have joked about Clinton´s "acute Benghazi allergy." Outgoing Congressman Allen West, R-Florida,
Comments: And, I thought there was "nothing" that could possibly make me feel worst today.../S
These are Hillary´s self-righteous friends writing screeds to defend her. We still haven´t seen any doctors telling us what´s going on. We have only her and her handlers´ statements. We still know nothing.
Uh, Mr. Tan . . . the journolist pundits have lost their shame long ago. It happened some time between their investigative journalism on Bill Cinton & said same done of Gov. Palin. You are wa-a-a-a-a-a-a-ay too late.
Listne up, Thanh Tan: Kathleen Parker says ´everyone´s a pundit´ so that means you have no business being a pundit and issuing forth your opinions, only Kathleen does. Time for you to shut up, because Fatty Parker says so.
Shame on the lapdog media for forgiving the unforgiveable and ignoring the deaths of brave americans while this shrew ran for cover. Than, to top off the outrage, to call this absolute failure (see Egypt, Libya, Syria, Russia, China, etc., etc.,) the "most accomplished Secretary of State ever" is dispicable. Hillary is one of the worst of a bad Obama lot and no amount of aspirin will change that.
The entire media establishment and every liberal in the country should be ashamed of themselves for the horribly cruel remarks they have made about every prominent Republican and their families in the last 20 years. The hypocrisy of these people is astounding. So Thanh, why don´t you be the first to admit that instead of lecturing the rest of us. I don´t personally care what happens to Hillary Clinton. Her criminal stupidity in Benghazi took 4 people´s lives.
Ignoramouses masquerading as wise pundits and reporters like this woman have helped get our nation to the pathetic shape it is in. Why doesn´t she question why Hillary´s blood clot wasn´t diagnosed right away? Hillary is the Secretary of State and had she taken a fall sufficient to cause a concussion one would think that protocol would be such that she would immediately have a CAT scan, at the very least. A case of the stomach flu leading to cerebral thrombosis, meaning that her brain´s in a blender and has turned to jello...again...just in time for the Benghazi hearings, is a little rich. Perhaps I should be ashamed to doubt this known liar and her flying monkeys, but I´m not.
-Before moving to Austin, Tan worked at Idaho Public Television and was a general assignment reporter for the ABC affiliate in Portland, Ore. Her work has appeared on PBS NewsHour, This American Life and in the New York Times. Check out her appearance on the Rachel Maddow show this month.-
I would like contact information for anyone who believes everything that we´ve been told about Hillary in the past five days ´cause I have a nice ocean-front lot in Arizona for which I´m seeking a buyer.
When someone lies to you, you have trouble believing them next time, when some like Bill and Hill have lied hundreds of times often under oath you end up NEVER believing a word out of their mouths. As to the Famous Hillary quote "I really don´t Recall"anyone can make $100k in a day with cattle futures call it beginners luck. The whole Idea is to scare Republicans on the committee so they won´t ask the tough questions. Clinton Defense Plan #1, your only picking on her cause she´s a frail little women..
This guy has drunk deeply of the Clinton Kool-Aid. Can´t he see the many holes in the Clinton narrative? What excuse could there be except that she is trying desperately to avoid being put under oath in front of a Congressional committee?
Sorry we ever treated your side, Thant, with respect and fairness. What is good for the goose is equally good for the gander. Not a peep when your "pundit", Andrew Sullivan was going after Trig Palin so don´t start appealing to our sense of shame. Your side lost the right so civility long time ago.
Possibly when she was "diagnosed" with a concussion ( by someone ? ) instead of going to the hospital and getting the proper tests and treatment at THAT time, if necessary, we would think more kindly of her situation. Whether we believe her, trust her, and/or support her, no one wants to see another person in a dire medical condition. We who do not support her simply believe she has been avoiding her testimony before Congress. and THAT´s a fact. We do not wish her to be ill or injured.
She´s NOT ill or injured. Tan is a succubus and believes anything said by their gods/goddesses.
She, Tan and their ilk have lied so manny times, a sane person cannot believe any spoken word or seen action. You have to always ask, what´s behind the curtain? What´s going on that´s being kept from me?
Just because H gets a doctor to do a couple of tests and say something that she scripted for him/her, doesn´t make it true.
Any sane person looks at a plethora of information / sources before making a decision. The first question is: What was the timeline? minute by minute - sick, fell, Dr., tests. Until she does a better job of covering her tracks, the timeline doesn´t add up to coincide with her purported injuries / released statements.
She doesn´t have the same medical care we have. She doesn´t need to see her primary physician to get a referral to a specialist.
US Secretary of State John Kerry reiterated on Sunday that Israel will be safer the day the recently-reached deal on Iran´s nuclear issue is implemented. Kerry, addressing the Brookings Institution´s annual Saban Forum, recognized Israel´s concern over Tehran´s disputed nuclear ambitions, saying the possibility of a weaponized nuclear Iran stood as an existential threat to Israel. "We will not allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. Period. Not now, not ever," he said.
Los Angeles - The California health exchange says it´s been giving the names of tens of thousands of consumers to insurance agents without their permission or knowledge in an effort to hit deadlines for coverage. (Snip) Officials with Covered California, the exchange set up in response to the federal health law, said they began providing names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses if available this week in a pilot program. They said they thought it would help people meet a Dec. 23 deadline to have health insurance in place by Jan. 1. The state doesn´t know exactly how many people
The “feminist nightmare” is recurring. Unbowed by Politico labeling her with this epithet a couple of weeks ago, Michelle Obama continues to do what her critics regard as frightening behaviors. Last week, she assaulted independent women by showing off the White House Christmas decorations. “Our goal is for every room and every tree to tell a story,” she explained to an audience of military families in the East Room, where her two-tone gray dress matched the silver ornaments on the trees. She spoke of Christmas trees made from stacks of books (“they’re very cool!”) and described the “first dog display”
Anyone who’s ever gone on a diet is told to lay off the booze because it’s high in calories. And that, of course, must make it very fattening indeed. Go onto the NHS Direct website, and you’ll be told a glass of wine contains as many calories as a slice of cake. Or if you prefer beer, the British Nutrition Foundation reminds you two pints are roughly the equivalent in calories to a full glass of single cream. So you may be surprised to learn that there’s no scientific evidence whatsoever to support the idea that alcohol makes you on weight. That’s hugely counter-intuitive, I know, because alcohol certainly is said to contain lots of calories.
President Barack Obama sounded a nostalgic personal note Sunday night and offered a rare self-assessment while criticizing congressional Republicans as an "impediment" to governing during the start of a West Coast fundraising tour for the Democratic Party. Obama told donors the sight of Mt. Rainier illuminated by a setting sun was particularly special because it reminded him of his mother, who attended high school in the Seattle area. "I feel the spirit of my mom," he said. He also attempted to contrast himself with Republicans who control the House of Representatives, saying they are "more focused on positioning themselves for
Los Angeles - Rather than thanking a list of friends and colleagues, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis used their American Music Awards acceptance speech to send a message of tolerance on Sunday night. Ben Haggerty, the rapper known as Macklemore, accepted the award for favorite rap/hip-hop album, then quoted Martin Luther King Jr. in a live satellite feed from the rap group´s latest tour stop. "Due to the fact that we are in Florida tonight accepting this award I want to acknowledge Trayvon Martin and the hundreds and hundreds of kids each year that are dying due to racial profiling and the violence that follows it," he said.
China and India’s success in weakening the latest global warming agreement created friction with other developing nations that are seeking to step up the fight against climate change. The two countries insisted on single-word changes for a deal at a United Nations conference involving 190 nations on Nov. 23. Instead of making “commitments” to roll back fossil fuel emissions, they signed up for “contributions,” a formulation that allows more flexibility in their action. Those last-minute revisions at a meeting that ran overtime by almost 30 hours underscored the reluctance of China and India to join in the sort of emissions
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
