Remember all that talk about civility in political discourse after the shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords? NPR´s Nina Totenberg apparently doesn´t, for on PBS´s Inside Washington Friday, she said of Hillary Clinton, "Any time conservatives can they want to take a knife to her throat": NINA TOTENBERG, NPR: I want to say a word about Hillary Clinton. Every time, you see how great her presence has really been, what a successful Secretary of State she’s been, by the fact that any time conservatives can they want to take a knife to her throat. And guess what?
There is one thing I can see very clearly, it is that Democrats are all on the same page; they will continue the name calling, the slandering and the impugning of conservatives. They think that they won the election on these slanders, so they determined to just get louder and louder. They don´t realize that the only reasons they won are that Romney wasn´t a true conservative and that Obama is a cult figure.
Shame on Nina Totenberg! Doesn´t she remember what we learned within minutes of the Tucson shooting?
Sheriff Dupnick and the media both rushed before TV cameras and said "political rhetoric" incites violence! Media scolds and liberal politicians demanded conservatives watch their mouths, and practically wet their pants over a picture of a target found on a Sarah Palin flyer.
And now this. What was Totenberg thinking? There´s no telling how much knife violence will happen before the day is over, all because of her poor choice of words.
Hillary praises herself enough for all of us, Nina, ole girl. We´ll just wait to see how well she and the Middle East hold up over the next 3 and a half years. There´s plenty of time for some more chickens to come home to roost on the dem plantation.
libs seem to say conservatives will do violent harm to people...i believe its the democrats that support abortion, and obamcaforsomebutnotforall....which will result in people being refused health care..which is nothing but murder....
In case Monica Crowley hasn´t repeated it here, let me paraphrase her thoughts from a couple of months ago: The left continues to transmit how they feel about the Right by projecting how (they believe) the Right feels about the left.
There is a scared little boy being held against his will by a crazed old man in a fortified bunker, going on 5 days now. Has the creepy Totenberg forgotten? She has a lot of nerve inciting violence by saying what she said about Conservatives and knives. Shame on her!!! Defund PBS.
I wish Hillary fans would be specific and tell the rest of us what Hillary has actually accomplished, anytime, anywhere that causes them to lavish such praise on her. It might make us feel less like taking a knife to her throat. For one of the most annoying things about her is the way she has of acting like a superior and highly accomplished person, even though nobody seems to be able to put their finger on just why she is entitled to such high status. It really is a mystery. I honestly have no idea, none at all, what Hillary Clinton has ever, in her entire life, actually done, achieved, or accomplished that makes her as special as she and her groupies think she is. Perhaps her achievements are too obvious to her followers to merit listing -- but they might at least spell them out in concrete terms for those to whom they are not self-evident. We might well disagree with such specific examples if they were offered, but at least we would know what her fans are talking about when they swoon over her.
And let us not forget NPR´s Madame Totenberg´s "loving" observation on PBS´s INSIDE WASHINGTON in 2003, concerning Lt. General William G. "Jerry" Boykin after it was reported the General had talked about his Christian faith at a prayer breakfast..." I hope he is not long for this world."
When I was in high school, I joined the ROTC initially because I was attracted to the uniforms. I figured they would provide an opportunity to escape the constant berating by fellow students owing to my outdated clothing. I was fascinated with the guns and became an excellent marksman, winning several marksmanship awards. I also led a drill team, which was very advanced with the art of disassembling and reassembling military rifles in record time. I advanced through the ranks, eventually becoming the city’s ROTC executive officer and was offered a scholarship to West Point. I gained great respect for
SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. -Officials at Shaw Air Force Base are trying to determine what to do about a holiday display after a Nativity scene was taken down last week. Air Force spokeswoman Lt. Keavy Rake said Tuesday a Nativity display was set up Friday by a group of volunteers from the base chapel at a small lake on the installation. The site was near where a tree lighting ceremony was scheduled Friday evening. Rake says the Military Religious Freedom Foundation lodged a complaint about the display through the Air Force in Washington. Paul Loebe, spokesman for the foundation, said
Majority Leader Harry Reid says the Senate will not extend current farm law if Congress can´t agree on a new farm bill before adjourning next week. House leaders have reserved space on their agenda this week for extending the current law until the end of January. Lawmakers fear that milk prices might rise sharply if dairy subsidies expire Jan. 1. The House and Senate have passed separate versions, but with widespread differences over crop subsidies and how much to cut food stamps. House Speaker John Boehner said last week that the House should extend the current law while negotiators seek
WASHINGTON — Majority Democrats in the Senate won approval Tuesday for one of President Barack Obama´s key judicial nominees, the first of his picks to win confirmation since they weakened the chamber´s filibuster rules. Senators voted 56-38 to approve Washington lawyer Patricia Millett to join the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, the nation´s second most powerful court. Both sides saw Millett´s appointment as pivotal. It will give Democratic-appointed judges a 5-4 majority over those chosen by Republican presidents for that court, which rules on the legality of White House actions and federal agency regulations. Obama praised
In response to Dylan Byers: MSNBC Is Everything the Left Accuses Fox News of Being: The Byers criticism of MSNBC was interesting and significant because it exists at all, but he´s still praising them with faint damn. He goes out of his way to drag Fox down to their level over and over again; he´s willing to concede that MSNBC might be as bad as Fox, when to any objective observer, there is simply no comparison. MSNBC is a gutter-dwelling performance-art interpretation of a shrieking-loon far left website, not a news channel with a high percentage of left-leaning opinion.
Environmental Protection Agency employees received light punishments for “employee integrity” violations and avoided prosecution when crimes allegedly occurred, according to the agency’s inspector general. The IG revealed a list of employee integrity violations that included assault, illegal possession of a weapon, and efforts to solicit improper personal payments from agency contractors, among other violations. Many received light punishments for the offenses, including ethics counseling, short leaves of absence, and informal discussions with supervisors. One employee was sentenced to 18 months of probation for attempting to carry a knife, stashed in one of his shoes, onto a plane. Despite the criminal prosecution, the
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is spending an additional $55 million to “bolster” the healthcare workforce, as Obamacare contributes to shortages in the industry. HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced last week that her agency will provide over 270 grants “from diversity to dentistry” to address worker shortages in the healthcare industry. The funding includes $45.4 million to support the nursing workforce, $5.2 million of which will go towards “improving nursing diversity.” The grants also provide $2.4 million for training of doctoral-level psychologists to “address the behavioral health needs of vulnerable and underserved populations,” and $3 million to support
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
