Hillary Clinton due to step down
as Secretary of State within
'days' of start of Barack
Obama's second term

Daily Mail [UK], by Toby Harnden

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/8/2012 7:26:54 PM

Hillary Clinton will step down as U.S. Secretary of State within 'days' of President Barack Obama's second inauguration in January, her spokesman said today. Her long-respected departure is expected by most Democrats to be a prelude for a White House run in 2016, when she will be 69. The top candidate to replace her is believed to be Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the losing 2004 Democratic presidential nominee. He is viewed as a more likely pick than Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, because of her widely-criticised appearance

Comments:

Kerry?

Sorry, I'm all out of shock and awe.

Yawn.

When she steps down, can she still be brought before Congress to answer for Benghazi? How about Holder and F&F if he steps down?

Rumor is that Brown may not be averse to running for a vacated senate seat.

She'll drop out of sight for a few months for the makeover. When she reappears just watch the press whores fawn and pant over how good she looks after a well deserved rest from her grueling schedule. Then the campaign starts.

At the rate she's deteriorating, Hill will be a total crone by 2016. And Ms. Alinsky's being elected would require everyone in the United States become amnesiac before then.

Whether or not fraud can be proven in this election to buy Moochelle another 4 years of taxpayer paid vacations, the fact is that you saw a big number of people turn out at Romney and Ryan's rallies. People might forget that enthusiasm if Barack governed from the center but the premise of Barack's promise to Mendelev that he would have flexibility after his reelection is that he will feel unrestrained in his push to remake America into some Alinski utopia. I do not think these people will suddenly stop caring about the country. I do not think the veterans of the military will forget how Barack abandoned the American consulate in Benghazi and did not move a finger to save them, nor how he failed to provide any covering fire to those gallant CIA personnel who risked their lives to do what their boss didn't have the cajones to do.

No, conservatism has not died. I don't think Hillary will succeed. She should not succeed and I pray that this woman gets what's coming to her, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Sorry for second post. I think Barack had a long talk with the Clintons after his victory, and made a deal with them; Hillary had already taken responsibility for Benghazi and now Barack wanted her to lie low for a while to keep the heat off his new term in office until the public, thanks to the MSM's convenient amnesia about the post election Benghazi probe, no longer wants to find the truth about Benghazi. In exchange, Obama pays her back with some cushy ambassadorship between now and 2016 and pledges the support of black votes (just as a formality since we know they will vote for the wife of the US' first black president, Slick Willie).

George W Bush exhibits his
paintings of world leaders
BBC News [UK], by Nick Bryant    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/5/2014 6:25:13 AM     Post Reply
For a president long criticised for seeing things only in black and white, the exhibition of George W Bush´s art at his presidential library in Dallas comes as something of a revelation. Delicate brushwork has replaced his famed swagger. He presents himself as a wholly different kind of Texas oilman. With each new brushstroke he seems also to be softening his public image. [Snip] His vantage point, of course, is unique: the cockpit of the presidency--or, at least, his recollection of those tumultuous White House years. So there is more to them than canvas, paints and brushes. Another key ingredient

Unhealthy modern lifestyles aren’t the only cause of heart disease, say scientists, who have found clogged arteries in Egyptian mummies. [Snip] Earlier studies had revealed fatty arteries in a large number of Egyptian mummies but critics had dismissed the find as related to their luxurious, fatty diets. ‘Atherosclerosis is supposed to be a disease of modern civilisation,’ Dr Adel Allam, a nuclear cardiologist at Cairo’s Al Azhar University told Alan Mozes of Health Day. ‘It´s supposed to be explained by the fact that we´re eating all the wrong foods, not exercising enough, becoming obese and having diabetes.

The US Treasury has granted plane manufacturer Boeing a licence to export certain spare commercial parts to Iran, a company spokesman says. Boeing has had no public dealings with Tehran since 1979. In a statement, the US company said the licence had been granted for the safety of flight. The step is being seen as part of a temporary agreement to ease sanctions on Tehran that US Secretary of State John Kerry reached with Iran last year. Under the deal brokered in November, Iran agreed to curtail its nuclear activities for six months in exchange for sanctions relief from nations including Britain, China and

An angry crowd attacked an Ebola treatment centre in Guinea on Friday, accusing its staff of bringing the deadly disease to the town, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said, as Mali identified its first suspected cases. More than 90 people have already died in Guinea and Liberia in what the medical charity has warned could turn into an unprecedented epidemic in an impoverished region with poor health services. The outbreak in Guinea is the first time the disease, epidemics of which occur regularly in Central Africa, has appeared in the country. Infected patients initially went undiagnosed for several weeks before tests confirmed Ebola.

A stunning visualization from a University of Chicago master´s student shows how the middle class have been pushed almost completely out of the Windy City in only a few decades. Daniel Kay Hertz has created a series of maps dating back to 1970 show the rapidly expanding upper class on the traditionally well-off North Side and the explosion of poverty on historically poorer South Side.

At a time of national wage stagnation and economic uncertainty outside the beltway, a Virginia Democratic congressman wants a raise – arguing that a $174,000 salary isn´t enough for a federal legislator to live comfortably in or around Washington, D.C. ´I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid,´ Moran told Roll Call. ´I understand that it’s widely felt that they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world.´ Congress´ approval rating among voters typically hovers under 20 per cent.

Mouths on Capitol Hill were agape Friday as MailOnline told congressional staffers that President Barack Obama´s recent one-night stay in Brussels cost taxpayers more than $2.9 million--and that´s just for hotel space and rental vehicles. [Snip] The Weekly Standard first reported on a single requisition for lodging in Brussels at a hotel called ´The Hotel,´ costing an estimated $1.52 million. MailOnline has found two additional requisitions, covering more than $396,000 at a Crowne Plaza hotel and $1.05 million in expenses for ´vehicle rentals.´ The cars were requisitioned from Modern Car, a Brussels company that specializes in luxury limousines.

As we reached Charing Cross, I signed off the last page of the book (which concerns victory in the Falklands war). When I got off the train, I discovered she had died. By Lady Thatcher’s own stipulation, her passing was my deadline, and so we were ready. Volume One was published on St George’s Day, a few days after her tremendous, healing funeral.

The BBC did a good job last night, wheeling out its political big gun--David Dimbleby--to moderate in his arch, feline, Flashman-esque way, not showing any noticeable left-wing bias and following up with some integrated coverage from Paxo on BBC Newsnight. But gosh wasn´t the BBC eager to tell us how well it was doing? The BBC stands for everything Farage hates and no doubt cordially loathes Farage.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore.

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the
