Hillary Clinton’s Dodgy Testimony
Tribune Media Services, by Jonah Goldberg

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/25/2013 5:19:45 AM

A lot of people in Washington apparently forgot how good Hillary Clinton is at not telling the truth. Wednesday, in her testimony before the Senate and, later, the House, Clinton brilliantly fudged, dodged, and filibustered. Of course, she’s a pro. Clinton was slow-walking depositions, lawyering up, and shifting blame when many of her questioners were still civilians down on the farm. Aided by a ridiculous format, she outfoxed most of the Republicans with ease.Meanwhile, the Democrats, almost uniformly, seemed singularly interested in celebrating Mrs. Clinton as a global diva who somehow manages to carry the burden of her awesomeness

Could there been anything more disgusting than watching the Dems slobber over the PIAPS during her recent testimony?

Politics aside for a moment - sometimes you´ve just got to sympathize with Bill Clinton. While giving her testimony Miss Hillary managed to personify every single attribute that turns a man off in a woman, and any that could possibly turn a man on was utterly lacking. Imagine being married to this Robot of Chill, this Diametric Opposite of Sensuality, this Cheese Grater of Anti-Femininity. It´s amazing Bill hasn´t had hundreds of more affairs than he´s had. Poor guy.

When Kerry takes over her job, there really won´t be much of a gender change at the head of State.

I have concluded that the Republicans, whose principal activity seems to be serving as a foil to the ruthless, relentless progress of the Commiecrats, are too lazy or too stupid to learn from a trenchant column like this one. Very likely, they are both.

"...Obama was happy to watch the country argue new limits on free expression and the necessity of giving bloodthirsty savages and terrorists a heckler’s veto on what Americans can do or say. Clinton was in on that lie, and that makes all the difference in the world."

Best point made yet about this farce. And the entire MSM was in on it, too. And by the way, the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.

After three months of planning on what to say and how to say it, she artfully dodged every question they asked which were few. The Democrats showered her with sickening praise which really turned off the viewers. They did her more harm than she did herself. I had to LOL and even she just rested her head on her hand and listened. Then she had to throw a tantrum when someone dared to ask her a question. It was a Farce alright.

Ah, what difference does it make? I mean, at this point. move on. Right? I cried about it, or pretended to, so isn´t that what really counts. What matters now is finding out what happened so it doesn´t happen again but what difference does it make what happened.

Now, this is so incredible but I suppose nothing about Hillary should surprise me. But, social media is abuzz with people who think, SHE DID GREAT! It doesn´t matter what she did or said. Alll that matters is, "I am woman Hear me Roar. Speak truth to power. Fist in the air. Right ON!" That sentient free Americans should reduce themselves to 1970´s cliches is so dispiriting. Ah, maybe Hillary´s right. What difference does any to it make. The country is over.

I feel for the family members of those killed in Bengazi. Our government officials who should be held accountable for this act, just skated away untouched, then closed the book on this story. This was no hearing, it was a scripted performance designed to make everyone forget about what happened on that day.

I for one am soooo looking forward to the day Jesus returns and brings God´s judgment and justice be done.

I am sooooo tired of the double, triple, or quadruple standards out there.

While the media, sports, Hollywood, liberal Dims, and anyone Anti-American get special treatment under the law, the rest of us have to deal with reality and the sharp rebuke of "justice."

We live in an unrecognizable and ever-worsening place. The people we continue to vote for do not do us any favors. They are more and more becoming a part of the problem rather than our staunch advocates.

I smelled the faint aroma of revolution in this morning´s air...

Bill and HilLIARy´s life has been full of nothing but lying, cheating and stealing.

Off they go - to a house in the Hamptons - millions in their pockets (her campaign debt paid the DAY BEFORE her hearing ?? - AND paid to self!) and millions to be made in the next four years before she makes the history books (her real intent from the beginning) by ANY means possible.....including murder.

If this were a Republican administration, leftists would be screaming about a conspiracy to misinform the public to cover for their role in the deaths of the four Americans, by ignoring the intelligence reports and repeated requests for better security. Hillary and Obama flagrantly lied to cover up their role in the death of these men, but they can constantly lie and break every law and their minions will still back them 100%, because their ultrapartisan leftism trumps everything else.

As usual, Jonah is right on:

"First, why did the administration lie? Well, it wanted to conceal its utter failure to prepare for terrorist attacks on September 11 — which is like being surprised by Christmas falling on December 25. Also, the Obama administration, by which I mean the Obama campaign, was desperate to protect its hyped record of fighting terrorism."

Her Republican questioners should have been ready when she asked "What difference does it make" with this kind of response. Instead, they folded up and were left muttering in the corner. (I like Marco, but he had nothin´.)

Hillary lied and lies without shame or remorse. SHE IS A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR who should not be in politics. In 2008, Hillary accused the Bosnian Serbs of shooting at her, and she and Chelsie had to run for their car, and it was not true. Yesterday, Hillary said that the way the four brave Americans died makes no difference, and she pounded on the table. I am very skeptical about people who pound on the table to make a point The way the four Americans died makes a huge difference to the poor widows and children.
If Hillary had alerted the Army and took the proper rescue measures perhaps the four men may be alive today.
Is it possible that the reason why Hillary did not get their frantic calls for help BECAUSE SHE WAS DRUNK????

The hearing was a disgusting display of fawning incompetence. Why even call for a hearing when the outcome is known in advance, and I think we all knew what would happen in that room. There is no accountability in Washington. Mrs.Clinton skated and Republicans for the most part were ineffective. The questioning was weak and rambling. She filibustered and totally ignored what she didn´t care to answer. The men and women tasked to find out what happened and why should be ashamed. They failed the country and those families.

Hillary has a "tell" when she´s lying. She looks down while she´s talking and moves her head side to side until the lie has been delivered.
She didn´t roll out that phony indignant scream until someone actually got too close for comfort.

Hillary learned well as an assistant to the prosecution at the Watergate hearings. She learned what happens to people who give honest testimony at a politically-directed lynching. So she approaches the hearings with a barrage of earnest doubletalk, baffling bull[bleep], airy generalities, and answering questions with the answer to a question that wasn´t asked -- all the tools of evasion were employed. Her testimony revealed her to be a skilled Artful Dodger and a lousy Secretary of State.

Saw Glenn Beck give a terrific insight into the (w)itch´s performance.

It was trained counterintelligence. Delay, distract, evade and delay, and lie and delay. Did you notice how many times she said she would give her answers later in a written response?

Hillary didn´t answer the questions that were about her lying about the video, etc. She would talk about something else.

Sen. Johnson asked about why they lied to the American public. She didn´t answer the question. She talked about who killed the Americans. That wasn´t the question. The question was why did you lie the to American public?

Another example of the poor excuse for Republicans we have in Congress: If Jonah Goldberg could come up with at least two occasions where PIAPS blamed the video for Benghazi, why couldn´t a republican on the committee say, "excuse me, Madam Secretary, but you DID say this video was to blame. Let me refresh your memory..." and feed her the quotes? Republicans have had at least three months to construct a strategy for this hearing and they didn´t even have the simplest of tactics to counter this harpie. Obama is succeeding: I am virtually assured of registering as an independent from now on. Get a set, Republicans! These people have openly declared war on you, and it´s time to fight back!

Great comments! #6, love that string of sobriquets. "HiLIARy" very good, #16.

Still laughing, #30.

#12, i weep with you.

The media will not do the job of journalism. We have to pick up the slack, i.e., talk to those uninformed voters out there.

Collect the videos of her drinking, of her laughing about the murder of Gaddafi, "We came. We saw. He died. ha ha ha ha." Her faux emotion during the session this week both the "tears" and the "rage." all of it. AND the four years of wreckage left in her wake.

Remember when she was running for the Senate, and her male opponent (name slips my mind) dared to approach her podium, her "space"?

Is Biden going to, ahem, roll over for her?

That is the capitol (another 15 secords). So what else was in Benghazi? So I looked down a list of Govermental Offices other agencies. A ha! I found the Transitional council for the Liberation of Libya.(10 seconds).
This was the group we were armingto fight Kadaffi. Might w still be arming them?

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:55:20 PM     Post Reply
President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

“Am I going to be an outcast?” A friend, who recently moved to an upscale neighborhood in Madison, Wis., called me last week to ask if she would be able to make mommy friends if she continued feeding her children — gasp! — non-organic food. She had just come back from the park where two mothers were discussing a recent vacation to a resort in Puerto Rico. One told the other that there, for the first time, her toddler was given Jif peanut butter. He loved it. Prior to that he had only had Whole Foods peanut butter, which (one might

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

Reflecting on Kelo nine years later

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread. "We are the New York Yankees of table tennis," said Texas Wesleyan University Coach Jasna Rather. "Everybody hates our guts."

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E.

According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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

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.
