Shame on pundits for mocking
Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton´s head injuries

Seattle Times, by Thanh Tan

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/2/2013 4:01:29 PM

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,

If she had testified before she had the flu, we wouldn´t be having this conversation now.

If she had appeared on all those Sunday talk shows (rather than Susan Rice), we wouldn´t be having this conversation now.

If Hillary didn´t have a reputation for being less than truthful, we wouldn´t be having this conversation now.

If Hillary were a Republican, we would be having this conversation now.

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.

Why disappear for 3 weeks? Why not have her doctor confirm the fact that she had a concussion. Her situation may be legitimate but why the secrecy for so long.

Hillary could have been more open about what happened. What´s so hard about that? Unless???

But all the Clintons have long Caesar´s-wife´s-reputations for purity, right?

And now we´d all better apologize for doubting her on those 1,000-plus FBI files in her bedroom closet, and the "I read the Wall Street Journal" futures trades.

And no more snarky cracks about Chelsea "Hubbell."

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.

We are so sorry for having not believed Mrs. Clinton, but she and her husband have lied so many times that our assumptions were just natural. Please forgive!

Now we do hope that Mrs. Clinton will testify on Benghazi before she leaves office, if her memory serves her.

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.

#6 may be on to something. I have a very close friend in the hospital who was recently placed into a medically-induced coma, again, to help reduce brain swelling.

One of the nurses contacted me and wanted to know if my friend spoke Latin. When I replied ´no´ and asked why, she told me my friend was speaking fluent Latin while in the coma.

Perhaps, if the concussion and blood clot story is true, Hillary is speaking fluently in Conservatism, channeling the Federalist papers and doctors are concerned and can´t explain the condition.

Stranger things have happened.

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..

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.

John Paul Stevens: It’s okay
for justices to take politics
into account when retiring
Washington Post, by Katie Zezima    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/20/2014 6:23:54 PM     Post Reply
Retired Supreme Court justice John Paul Stevens said it is appropriate for justices to take the political climate into account when thinking about retirement. "I think so," Stevens said when asked by George Stephanopoulos on ABC´s "This Week" if it is appropriate to take politics into account when deciding to retire. "It´s an appropriate thing to think about your successor, not only in this job," said Stevens, who retired in 2010 and was replaced by Justice Elena Kagan. Stevens cited former defense secretary Robert Gates, who said in a new book that he was also concerned about who would take his place.

Red-state Democrats blast
latest Keystone delay

The Obama administration’s latest Keystone pipeline delay had barely been announced late last week when red-state Democrats began to howl, calling the move everything from ridiculous to irresponsible and vowing to explore ways to force President Obama’s hand. The outcry from within the president’s own party underscored the tricky politics for those Democrats, many of whom are facing tough re-election bids, and decisions such as Keystone make it difficult to be tied to Mr. Obama right now. It also set up a major test: Can those Democrats find a way to pass legislation overruling the administration’s decision,

Putin sees opportunities
as Obama turns away
Washington Times, by Charles Ortel    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/20/2014 5:38:41 PM     Post Reply
We learn this Easter Sunday from The New York Times that President Obama now embraces his inner ostrich — Russian President Vladimir Putin is but a pesky irritant, causing problems in just one region of a world that America still rightly leads. Apparently, our cocksure Nobel Peace laureate believes it is cool under the sand, even as tectonic geopolitical plates shift underneath the creaky, man-made foundation “assuring” global security. In real life, President Obama and his senior advisers are making gross mistakes of epic-defining proportions that will have profoundly negative consequences, particularly for the poorest among us.

Bill Maher, comedian or bigot?

Comedy has many subjects: leaders, governments, things we don’t understand. Regarding that last topic, I suppose it is understandable that comedians pick on religions. In any event, freedom of speech allows them to do so. What is generally not condoned, however, are continuous and sweeping insults aimed at those with differing points of view. The worst forms of prejudice and racism are bred out of this type of one-sided banter. Blacks in this country never were given the chance to defend themselves against claims of being less intelligent than whites during the time of slavery. Jews and non-Aryans never were given a chance to defend

Syria´s Bashar Assad visits recaptured
Christian village on Easter

BEIRUT - Syria´s embattled president marked Easter with a tour Sunday of an ancient Christian village recently recaptured by his forces, an important symbolic prize for his government ahead of coming presidential elections he appears poised to contest. President Bashar Assad´s visit to Maaloula, some 40 miles northeast of Damascus, serves a propaganda victory for his government in its quest to be seen as protector of religious minorities as its civil war grinds on. (Snip) Rebels, including fighters from the al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front, seized Maaloula several times late last year, most recently in December.

A Kuwaiti judge has ordered the temporary closure of two newspapers for breaking a news blackout about an alleged coup plot. The independent newspapers, Al Watan and Alam Al Yawm, published details of a videotape said to show former senior officials planning the overthrow of the Gulf state´s leadership. Both papers have been ordered to stop printing for two weeks. The editor of Al Watan said it would appeal against the suspension. He told Reuters news agency: "I do not think we talked about the tape more than any other newspaper." The videotape purportedly contains allegations of a plot to topple the government

´America´s royal baby´: How Chelsea´s first
child could give Hillary Clinton a boost in
the polls if she runs for president in 2016

42 replie(s)

Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/19/2014 7:12:10 PM     Post Reply
For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
