Republican senators say Rice meeting
just leaves more questions unanswered

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/27/2012 11:50:05 AM

Three Republican senators who met Tuesday with U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice say they left the meeting with more unanswered questions about her comments after the deadly September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. “I am more disturbed now than before,” said South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham. The Capitol Hill meeting lasted about 90 minutes and also was attended by acting CIA Director Michael Morell. Graham was joined by Sens. Kelly Ayotte, of New Hampshire, and John McCain, the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Comments:
Simply put, if Rice can´t obfuscate [lie, to those in Rio Linda], she doesn´t deserve to be a future Secretary of State on 0bama´s team. This went as most of US expected. Now, what will the GOP do? Whine, or keep going after 0bama till the truth of Benghazi is revealed and those responsible for the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and the three men are criminally charged and convicted.

She´s either totally incompetent or a political stooge, either way, she misled the American people about a terror attack on U.S. soil on 9/11 and can NOT be trusted.

She went into the meeting with the "Obama ´tude"..more and more of that showing up everywhere.
People showing their butts, after all they have Obamapho´ now.
I am a courteous older person and lately I cannot go to a shop, bank, or other place of business without being treated like some sort of second rate citizen by Obama voters.
Has anyone else experienced this?

As far as I can tell, no talking head has asked anyone (especially in the Administration) if no one was sure about what was the cause(s) of the attack and it was/(is) being invetsigated, then why didn´t you (Rice) just say that? Instead it was the video ad nauseum.

And if as Obama stated she had nothing to do with Benghazi, State Dept security/diplomatic building issues, etc. then why was she sent out if she could not answer any questions that required some knowledge of State, etc.? Why wasn´t the actual SoS sent out on these talk shows?

Has anyone asked this question: If President Obama labled the Benghazi massacre a terrorist attack the day after it occured (as was his infamous claim in the second debate, supported and "verified" by Candy Crowley), then how is it that Rice was flitting about days later blaming the killings on a spontaneous flare-up by protesters enraged over an anti-Muslim video posted on YouTube?

Can someone post that question, preferably directly to the President, please?

Asking Rice in politely for a private meeting was a tactical error. When will they learn? The Senators should ignore her totally until/unless she is up for Sec of State. Then, PUBLIC hearings under oath and ask her everything. All criticism, scrutiny should be directed at one person - OBAMA. This emphasis on Rice only helps him.

Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glenn Dougherty were slaughtered like animals over a 7 hour period as the President sat and watched on live drone video feed, doing nothing since any response would have laid lie to his ´Arab Spring´ policy.

There are no more questions to answer, other than WHY is the Republican party not pushing an indictment of TREASON.

Remember Watergate. The Dems and the press didn´t let up for five minutes. They shoved that cover up in our face the way they did Obamacare. But of course, Nixon was a mean white man not a submissive Black woman.

Rice is damaged goods who brings little credibility to the world stage, especially in the Middle East. But King Obama wants her to prove a point that he gets whatever he wants.

That´s Washington-speak for it went really, really, really badly.

I don´t really have a read on Rice, of course she made a perfect fool of herself about Benghazi and a respectable person would quit and go home after that no matter whose fault it was, but DC is generally short of respectable people in any case. Is she a female Eric Holder, basically a toady whatever her actual ability level?

Correction #3, she is an incompetent, political stooge. Her record of failure should be enough to bar her from higher office. In this brave new world, it guarantees it because all her failures were to the detriment of the U.S. Remember, she couldn´t be bothered to attend Netanyahu´s speech to the UN, she was having lunch with the dictator crowd.

Kelly Ayotte is doing herself no favors by coat-tailing McCain and Graham. She probably feels when she throws her hat in the ring for 2016 these two will secure many followers for her. She will echo the other two on the meeting with Rice if they ever give her a chance to talk.

She was sent out to stonewall and she did. Now, the O Admin. is hoping to accuse all those white folks of racism if they refuse to confirm her. It´s all been set up from the start.

As for Benghazi answers, good luck.

With a couple of exceptions the GOP* Senators should form a circular firing squad and practice until they get it right. It would be a favor to the nation.

What did those boobs expect?

*The Democrat Senators, with no exceptions should do the same. It would be an even bigger favor to the nation.

Kelly Ayotte is on Fox with Megyn, saying she found Rice´s "explanation" to be "unsatisfactory".

Ayotte is smart. Her speech is odd which hampers her ability to communicate. Raspy. Nerves or ? Otherwise she seems smart, although not quite as take-charge as I´d like to see. Some were mentioning her for VP with Romney. Not sure about her being at that level. Seems right just where she is.

If the meeting raised more questions than were answered, then one could only say it went well.

Because Susan Rice is one huge question mark. And further illumination of her background will only reveal more and more shadows and dark corners.

So why do I have this feeling of impending dread that Lindsey Graham is STILL going to capitualte and vote for her confirmation anyway?

PS to #30. Ayotte never got an answer from Rice as to who gave her the talking points and sent her to the talk shows other than "the White House", which is not an answer. We know that. WHO in the White House? Now maybe Ayotte knows, but if she doesn´t she failed on this one.

Ayotte is still hung up on who changed the talking points when we know that it was someone in Clapper´s group - the DNI - but again there has to have been a person. Or he is falling on their collective sword and it was again that illusive, ephemeral "White House".

#34 cont´d (hit submit too soon)

One statement Ayotte made positively: In response to a question from Megyn as to whether they thought Rice was confirmable, she said that there were too many questions to be answered on the entire Benghazi incident before "anyone is confirmed" for "the highest diplomatic post in our government".

Now that is getting somewhere.

Well she was circulated, among the talk shows, to circulate the spin with no accountability because, well, she´s out of the chain. (BTW-why did the networks even let her in, when this whole debacle had nothing to do with her job/duties? Oh, b/c she just said DC sent her?! Try something new, lame American networks-it´s called "verification and screening". If this had taken place-there would be no pay dirt for Obama and his Simon-Says with: events, players, truth. The networks willingly play into his hands)

Now Obamba wants to reward her for being a good little lying, interference-running spinmeister. The foolish Repubs let the democrats set the agenda, like someone chasing a dollar bill on the sidewalk, being pulled along by invisible fishing line. When will they learn? The dems will go around saying now that Lindsey and McCain had their chance to clear the air in this meeting and issue over-confirm her NOW, when the meeting should have been, just as mentioned above, under oath and subject to perjury charges. Why is Hillary allowed to skate? Where the h is she?!

There isn´t much reason to have faith in the pub attack dogs-there´s no there, there. It´s really disappointing. They´ve let us down time and time again. Ie now F&F is just a memory.

Question #1 !!!
What was obama doing on 9/11?

Since the corrupt news media does not ask, we know he was the one to order the US military not to rescue 30 Americans and that obama was going to let 30 Americans and who knows how many others be murdered.

This was termed a "charm offensive" by the Rice cheerleaders in the MSM.

When I heard that, I laughed. Ruefully. For even if Susan Rice had any personal charm whatsoever (as Condi Rice did), there is not a snowball´s chance in hell she could stuff her Big Lie back in the bottle.

This is something that Cult of Personality acolytes --and those like Obama who believe in their own manufactured Cult of Personality-- cannot grasp:

Rice is simply fodder...ask Obama these questions:


IF Obama gave the order to save the Ambassador, military attache and the Seals, there Is a written order...SHOW IT..PROVE it ...


EXACTLY WHERE was Obama at the time of the attack???..over those 7 hours...


Why was Obama running missiles and armaments through Turkey, using them as a conduit and into Syria to AlQaeda ???


Why was the Turkish counsel there in Benghazi??? At a CIA safe house?


30,000 Missing missiles and Manpads launchers,,,WHY??? Is this Fast and Furious II Missile Running??? Why was the known Arms Dealer´s ship at Benghazi´s port??? This is traitorous SEDITION if the president is arms running...And if as thought to an enemy, Al Qaeda, of the USA?? Do we have a traitor in the WH...


Ambassador Stevens was raped as reported, was this because the USA stood by and let our supported rebel forces rape Kaddaffi...PAYBACK by Russia...


Is this a proxy war with Russia?...It would seem so... as Russia is angered with our turn over of their allies Libya and now in process Syria, to the Muslim Brotherhood...Why would this president want to start WWIII?


Was Russia sending us a message on Election Day with RUSSIAN NUCLEAR SUBMARINES off our East Coast.???


Who told those Seals to light themselves up with Laser...they would Only have done that if told the Drone above would give them cover and use that light up to draw out and kill the enemy...the Seals did not draw fire to out their position and to get themselves slaughtered? Who gave the order to lie to the Seals toure the laser to get them murdered?

What is Lochkeed´s part in the direct commerce of Missile running?

Why is the USA, against our NATO treaty, handing over Stinger Missiles to Al Qaeda, an entity of the Muslim Brotherhood?

Well people get used to the “new normal” where lies, obfuscation, prevarication, stonewalling, calling evil good and good evil are the new standards for behavior in addition remember 0bama’s approval rating is 51%, which means obviously that over half of America enjoys being screwed.

It is past time to subpoena Hillary, Rice, and the CIC, Barack Hussein Obama and interrogate them under oath about the Benghazi attack.

The time for meetings is long past.

Sorry to say that in this Dem/MSM induced Race Baiting, Gender Baiting atmosphere, the three senators would be smart to push Sen Kelly Ayotte more forward. Unfortunately, the ´´old white guys´´ slander still works in many quarters. Speak up, louder please, Sen Ayotte!

Dems learned years ago that "public servants" (gag) are soft, greedy, corrupt and always looking out for #1. Pubs are still playing Ststesman, but starting with Cinton & the BJ Dems learned that the GOP will always fold. The press will trivialize this, too. Expect repeal of prez term limits next. They´ll just ram it through.

Of course she is going to get confirmed. It is a two-fer, black and female...now if she is also a lesbian (I have no idea), she would fulfill the affirmative action trifecta

Anyone who does not confirm her is racist and sexist and also racist against BO as well.

Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.), chairman of the powerful tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, plans to retire after his current term, he announced Monday. Camp said in a statement that his decision "was reached after much consideration and discussion with my family. Serving in Congress is the great honor of my professional life. I am deeply grateful to the people of the 4th Congressional District for placing their trust in me. Over the years, their unwavering support has been a source of strength, purpose and inspiration.

Washington - An Idaho man who pleaded guilty to firing an assault rifle at the White House in 2011 has been sentenced to 25 years in prison. A federal judge in Washington sentenced Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez on Monday. Prosecutors had asked he spend 27 ½ years in prison for the shooting. No one was injured, but prosecutors say Ortega-Hernandez hit the executive mansion about eight times and did nearly $100,000 in damage. Ortega-Hernandez´s lawyers argued he was suffering from extreme depression and mental stress at the time of the shooting and was under the misguided belief that Armageddon was coming.

Exclusive: The FBI is searching for a recent Army recruit believed to be planning a "Fort Hood-inspired jihad against U.S. soldiers," FoxNews.com has learned. The alert, whose legitimacy was confirmed by military and law enforcement officials, stated that a man identified as Booker had told friends of his "intention to commit jihad." Booker, who is also known as Muhammad Abdullah Hassan, was recruited by the U.S. Army in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2014 and was scheduled to report for basic training on April 7. But he was discharged last week, apparently after law enforcement authorities learned of his alleged

Detroit, MI - Release from General Motors website: General Motors informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration today that it would recall more than 1.3 million vehicles in the U.S. that may experience a sudden loss of electric power steering assist. If power steering assist is lost, a message displays on the Driver Information Center and a chime sounds to inform the driver. Steering control can be maintained because the vehicle will revert to manual steering, but greater driver effort would be required at low vehicle speeds, which could increase the risk of a crash. Models subject to safety recall are the:

Iowa expands its ´do not rehire´ list

Iowa City, Iowa - Iowa continues to maintain an internal "do not rehire" list of fired employees who are barred from returning to state employment, even though judges have raised questions about its legality, according to a review by The Associated Press. Since 2009, judges have said three times that the Iowa Department of Administrative Services doesn´t have "the statutory or regulatory authority" to issue lifetime employment bans against fired workers, but the list has steadily grown, records show. As of January, 1,471 people were barred from being reconsidered for executive branch employment, data show.

U.S. ambassador to India resigns

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/31/2014 4:26:58 PM     Post Reply
U.S. Ambassador to India Nancy Powell announced her resignation Monday after only two years on the job, sparking some speculation overseas that the administration may have been looking to replace her. Powell only arrived in India in April 2012, and these diplomatic posts typically last three years. The buzz in New Delhi is that Powell’s departure may be related to ongoing tensions over the uproar in India after the arrest of Devyani Khobragade, an Indian diplomat in New York, on charges of falsifying visa documents for her maid/nanny and then lying to investigators about what she was paying the domestic worker.

Obamacare Real Enrollment:
Just 1.7% of Uninsured Covered
Breitbart´s Big Government, by Wynton Hall    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/31/2014 4:10:39 PM     Post Reply
Obamacare, the plan purportedly created to provide health coverage for the uninsured, has enrolled just 1.7% of America´s 48.6 million uninsured. News of the disastrous numbers comes as nervous Democrats and President Barack Obama, ahead of the November midterm elections, did their best on Monday´s enrollment deadline to put a positive spin on the deeply unpopular Obamacare program. (Snip) The White House now claims an Obamacare enrollment figure of six million people. However, according to The New York Times, at least 20% of those never paid their premiums to activate coverage, leaving them uninsured.

Paris - The United Nations’ highest court on Monday ordered Japan to halt its annual whaling hunt in the Southern Ocean around Antarctica, saying that its present program was not being carried out for scientific purposes, as Japan has claimed. In a 12-to-4 judgment, the International Court of Justice in The Hague found that Japan was in breach of its international obligations (Snip) Lawyers attending the proceedings said there was a gasp in the audience when Judge Tomka ordered Japan to immediately “revoke all whaling permits” and not issue any new ones under the existing program. “I rarely heard such an unequivocal, strong ruling at

Jerusalem - The United States is talking with Israel about the possibility of releasing convicted spy Jonathan Pollard from prison early, a person familiar with Mideast peace negotiations said Monday. That would come in exchange for Israeli concessions that would allow faltering peace talks with the Palestinians to continue beyond an end-of-April deadline. The person cautioned that such a step by the United States - which would be a dramatic turnaround from previous refusals - was far from a done deal and that discussions with Israel on the matter are ongoing. (Snip) In return, Israel would have to undertake significant concessions to the

The Gosnell Movie:
´America´s Biggest Serial Killer´
Weekly Standard, by Abby W. Schachter    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/31/2014 3:13:36 PM     Post Reply
Three crusading filmmakers intent on doing stories that no one else will touch have moved on from a truth-telling documentary about natural-gas extraction to a planned TV movie about the man they’ve dubbed “America’s worst serial killer.” By the looks of it, plenty of people want the movie to be made. (Snip) "Americans are fascinated by crime and serial killers and so is Hollywood … It’s a great story and a story that needs to be told," McAleer explained in an interview. But focusing on Gosnell seems strange, at first. After all, Gosnell isn’t who comes to mind when we typically think of a serial killer. There are certainly many examples of movies

As Charles S. Clark of Government Executive writes, three members of the House – Reps. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, Stephen Lynch of Massachusetts and Gerry Connolly of Virginia – have requested, by letter, something called a Government Accountability Office study. They are concerned that “The pay freeze, furloughs and last October’s government shutdown have so deflated the federal workforce” that: “Stakeholders, including federal employee organizations, have noted that federal workers have become increasingly dissatisfied with their employment, and that this may be compromising the federal government’s ability to

Obama´s Minimum Wage Beliefs
Are As False As Can Be
Real Clear Markets, by Jeffrey Dorfman    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/31/2014 2:55:45 PM     Post Reply
President Obama would like everyone to believe that raising the minimum wage will help those in poverty, will cause no drop in employment, and will probably even boost the economy. Unfortunately, these beliefs are as false as can be and come from a fundamental misunderstanding of the very Keynesian economics he professes to follow. In reality, it is likely to slow growth and will do less than he claims to help the poor. (Snip) To the first point, it is useful to understand that only a small percent of the wage gains from an increase in the minimum wage go to those officially in poverty. According to the Congressional Budget

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character. The latest batch of documents from the Clinton Library covering his presidency in the

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.
