In response to a question from reporter Major Garrett on whether the Obama administration´s mishandling of Benghazi raises "core questions of basic competency," press secretary Jay Carney revealed that Barack Obama "is not particularly concerned" about whether Susan Rice misled the American people: "What the president is worried about, Major, is what happened and why in Benghazi. He is not particularly concerned about whether the ambassador or I went out and talked about the fact that we believed extremists might have been responsible. And whether we named them as al Qaeda or not does not--no,
Comments: Amazing. The neverending arrogance of 0bama is just stunning. He´s not particularly concerned about anything but himself and his abuse of power. And we get four more years of it.
Nor is anybody else expressing concern. What a sorry comment on our citizens. What I see as an offense worthy of execution others see as "no big deal". I suppose that is why anyone with any power seems to imagine they are above the consequences of their actions. There isn´t that much power in all the world. The Necktie Party is being organized. Y´all come join!
And Obama´s pal, Egypt´s President Morsi doesn´t care what the courts, the legislature and the people think. Two peas in a pod. The party of moochers has done itself proud, out-doing the first Mooch herself.
Why should he worry about anytning? He could right now get away with ANYTHING and no one would want to throw him out. It is the most amazing thing I have ever heard. Chavez has nothing on him. The leader in Egypt has nothing on Obama. They are all doing what they want and there is nothing the American people can or will do about it because everyone is afraid of the man and his followers. America is over.....
That the American people were deliberately lied to by his messenger doesn´t particularly concern him. Let´s cut to the chase... This response really says, I don´t give a s--- about the truth or the American people. They don´t deserve to know anything. End of subject. Next?
This punk , his fellow punks and punketts will go down. They will be defeated, exposed, and shunned . In the meantime, ignore his ´laws/rules/regs/ and do everything in your power to dry up the cash flow to their filthy paws and the paws of the takers. Yes, Takers, for we all know what type of person we´re taking about. We know it´s not the truly needy we abhor. It´s the classless filth that just takes while we work our butts off. For me, No more. I already gave at the office.
I sure hope Rants Pants will get another turn as RNC chairman. He will know what to do about this sort of thing.
I´m not that surprised that EVERY check and balance mechanism has been neutered or circumvented. That control for responsive, LEGAL, government went out the window when the filthy politicians were able to create laws that didn´t apply to them. What should terrify every non government citizen is the fact that the Republican opposition is either blackmailed or too afraid to act on ANY of this administrations blatant crimes. ALL of this is just fine with a media that created the most bizarre President ever.
Judgment Day is going to be a real eyeopener for Obama and all his cronies!
Susan Rice sacrificed her intelligence/believeability! She will no longer be trusted/admired. She sold her soul and one day will regret it.
America has denigrated our stature in the world by the conniving and dishonesty of this administration. Sadly, we are reaping the consequences.
We still have "In God we Trust" on our money. Hold fast that reality!
We have allowed/encouraged abortions, gay rights/marriage, all against God´s Way and He will have the last word - sadly, being - Depart from Me, for I never knew you! Hell is hot and confined!
Pray for America!
Entitlents have/will continue to destroy the land we love, where many fought/died for the freedom we take for granted.
Pray for America!
Don´t let Obama and all those who bow at his throne take away what Almighty God has given US - Freedom!
This election was stolen! We will reap the consequences - again!
I still think the parents of those who died because Obama did not act immediately, should sue him and the country and let there be a free trial where "all" the evidence will be forthcoming and we, the people, will see for ourselves who is in control!
Again, pray for America! God blessed US and we took Him for granted. No more! Make a stand for righteousness!
You can bet that Obama is not going to be particularly concerned about much going forward besides his progressive agenda. He is probably laughing like hell at the Republicans, Fox News, and others who are all wound up about what Susan Rice said on those news shows, as Obama said they should come after him, as you can be sure that he either told her what to say, or someone else in his crew did, and in the end nothing is going to be done about all that. That is the way it is going to be for the next four years.
I used to believe that Stinky´s chickens would all come home to roost on Nov 6. Now I don´t know what to think. The GOP is in no position to stand in his way and they are too meek to do so anyway. The MSM has been championing his every utterance.
He´ll skate on this like he has on everything else.
It seems like the Dark Ages has arrived for America. It could only happen because of the illiterate citizens who allowed this man to govern. Why would anyone be shocked that he is not concerned? He was the one who sent her out to lie.
Got to say something else here. The Republican Congress just as well pack their bags and go home for the next 4 years. There is NO way to win with this man. It reminds me of an ant sparing with an elephant. There is nothing we can do now. We are doomed.... there is no hope for America - ever again.
all the liberal teachers, professors, writers, actors, many doctors, psychologists, social workers, engineers (even from MIT) all believe obama is great. add them to the 47% and most of the country thinks this guy is great, the country is going to be fine and all is well. in their opinion, romney would have ruined the country and was a fascist. so the rest of us can rail all we want and it´s to the wind. stock up on food, water, medicine and get a gun. that´s what i´m doing. still in shock that romney lost. 2 lousy percent. where the hell were those 2%?
Look at all the attention paid to 2016. First, Obama is goingto get the22nd Amendment scotched-then he canrun again.. And which GOPer would you want torun against him. which would be the designated loser of that go-around. Second The congress passed all that lousy legislation leading to the so-called fiscal cliff. One of the GOP could prepare a bill in the House to cancel or repeal it and sent it to the Senate. The Congress acts like the legisalation came from King George III and nothing they can do. Even Chief Justice Roberts told Congress to clean up their act and re-do what they don´t like, maybe he was right.
PJ Media columnist J. Christian Adams appeared on The Kelly File on Fox News on Friday to talk about his recent article detailing how the Department of Homeland Security has recently hired activist immigration attorneys who worked for pro-amnesty, pro-asylum, and open borders groups in the past. Now, sources inside DHS have provided PJ Media with the employment history and pro-amnesty backgrounds of the newly hired lawyers who will be enforcing federal immigration laws. The ideological histories of these new DHS lawyers undermine confidence that the federal government will vigorously enforce federal laws, notwithstanding any congressional “mandates” to do so.
WASHINGTON -- A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, a respected expert on China´s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director´s advisory panel on foreign investment in the United States. Moran also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council,
DEVELOPING: – An elderly U.S. tourist and war veteran detained for more than a month for alleged hostile acts against North Korea has been deported from that country. North Korean state media said Saturday 85-year-old Merrill Newman was released because he had apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition. It was not clear if his confession was coerced. He was taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10-day tour. Vice President Joe Biden is currently in South Korea on
At the "Fast Food Forward" protest on Thursday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) demanded that Pres. Obama sign an executive order bypassing Congress and unilaterally raising the federal minimum wage. Rep. Ellison told the crowd that they should join him in demanding that Pres. Obama skip seeking Congressional approval and raise the minimum wage on his own - and that he sent the president a letter on Wednesday presenting his demand: "We in Congress will try to raise the minimum wage. We got opponents on the other side of the aisle who say that there shouldn´t be no minimum wage. So, we
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan joined WSJ Live host Mary Kissel on Friday where they discussed the ongoing issues associated with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. Noonan said she found the way in which this administration has handled this crisis has been among the “oddest” she’s seen. Noonan added that she would like to see “humility” from President Barack Obama rather than combativeness. Kissel began by asking about the “puzzle” of the president’s response to the crisis surrounding the ACA’s faltering website. “I look at the White House the past two months, I think the president and
Another leftist lets the mask slip. Jonathan Alter believes that violent criminals imprisoned for their crimes are political prisoners. He and Al Sharpton talked to themselves on MSNBC today. Sharpton asked Alter what America might learn from the example of Nelson Mandela. Reasonable answers to this question include but are not limited to: Don’t abuse political power to punish your enemies; don’t hold on to political power forever; choose your wife or husband a bit more carefully; don’t seek to divide when unity serves the nation better. Alter wants America to learn a different lesson. None of the above. Alter
As Congress gets ready to battle on immigration reform next year, it´s important to take a look at who will help enforce and shape any kind of immigration overhaul. Former Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General and radical open borders attorney Tom Perez was safely put into the position of Labor Secretary by President Obama and the Senate earlier this year, knowing the Department of Justice is safely locked down as pro-amnesty. Perez has a long history of advocating not for American workers, but for illegal alien workers and made sure the Department of Justice was stacked with pro-amnesty attorneys
Barack Obama delivered a statement on the passing of Nelson Mandela yesterday. During his speech he told about his first public speech on apartheid at Occidental College. “I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela’s life. My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid. I studied his words and his writings.” But, Barack Obama forgot to mention that his speech at Occidental was sponsored by Marxists and Weatherman terrorists. Barack Obama’s first public speech was at an Occidental College event
Rep. Matt Cartwright, a member of President Obama´s Obamacare "strike team," says it´s a "good thing" that people are losing their old health care plans: "Because a lot of those people, they did have policies that didn´t meet the minimum standards. That´s just not a theoretical discussion. There´s a reason you have minimum standards. There are people out there who have insurance that´s really an illusion of coverage. They have immense deductibles, they have annual and lifetime caps. There´s so many people out there with what I call phony insurance policies and the fact that they´re going to lose those
Fresh off his interview with President Barack Obama, MSNBC host Chris Matthews appeared on Now with Alex Wagner to review what the president said and to express his thoughts on the passing of former South African President Nelson Mandela. Matthews linked the GOP to South Africa’s white apartheid advocates and declared that those who facilitated the transition to Mandela’s presidency were more patriotic and had greater regard for their country than the Republicans in Congress. Matthews acknowledged a point that Rev. Al Sharpton had made earlier in this broadcast where he noted that the last apartheid president, F.W. de Klerk, recognized
The Obama administration knew as early as August that the small-business portal on healthcare.gov would not be ready by the Oct. 1 launch, but delayed admitting those problems until Nov. 27, according to documents released by House Republicans on Friday. In one colorful email exchange in mid-August, Henry Chao, the administration official charged with the development of the online insurance marketplaces, expressed frustration with delays from the private contractor working on the website. When the contractor suggested a new date of Nov. 15 for the launch of the small-business portal of the website, Chao bluntly asked: “Can we sign this
The White House dismissed a report suggesting that President Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius did not meet ahead of the botched rollout of Obamacare. Obama press secretary Jay Carney said the claim was based on a “ridiculously false premise.” “Kathleen Sebelius comes frequently and she meets frequently with the president,” he said. “She’s here a lot and meets with the president with regularity.” “It’s safe to say Secretary Sebelius spent a lot of time here,” he added, noting the administration’s focus on health care reform. The report from Politico Magazine noted that a Government Accountability Institute analysis of the president’s
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
Although the jobless rate in November fell to its lowest level since he took office, President Obama called on Republican lawmakers Saturday to spend tens of billions on unemployment benefits that are set to expire this month. “It shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. But he said the “economic lifeline” is in jeopardy. “All because Republicans in this Congress — which is on track to be the most unproductive in history — have so far refused to extend it” Mr. Obama said. If Congress doesn’t act before lawmakers leave on their holiday break, about
Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common. There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people. Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges. Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt “obliged” to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It comes on the back of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, which has killed more than 5,000 people. Sir Brian said: “Given the tragic events this
Call me Grinch, call me Scrooge. Call me Lord Voldemort of the Yuletide. None could be worse than sending me a holiday card with glossy photographs of your lovely, smiling family. My wife, Emily, and I place your cards like trophies on our shelves, continuing an old-school practice that began about 175 years ago as a way of maintaining relationships as families and friends moved far and wide. Today’s cards may appear more personalized — with photos of spouses, kids and pets, and distribution lists much smaller than a sprawling collection of Facebook friends. But when I flip over the photo
Chris Matthews is crazy. Nevertheless, when left-wingers talk openly with one another, their craziness can be revealing. That is the case, I think, with this remarkable MSNBC clip. Matthews, fresh from his kneepad interview with President Obama, praises what he terms a uniquely brilliant insight by Al Sharpton: South Africa’s white politicians of the apartheid era were more patriotic than today’s Republicans: I haven’t heard anything as smart as what I heard Reverend Sharpton say a moment go in five years. The difference between the way F.W. de Klerk handled the need for change and the election – democratic election
