The lying continues
Boston Herald, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 12/28/2012 9:57:36 AM

There is something particularly ugly in a democratic society when government officials lie — or in the case in point, tell half-truths. Last week in the wake of a damning report on how some State Department officials handled the security situation at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi prior to and after Sept. 11, it was announced that four officials had resigned. Well, at least that’s what most of us thought they had announced. This is the way State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland put it: that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “has accepted Eric Boswell’s decision to resign

A little too little, a little to late. And this from the state that elected a woman who claimed to be "native American" and a lawyer, but is neither.

The MSM is culpable in every aspect of what´s happening to our country. They have traded integrity for cheap, soon-to-be confiscated power. Fools! No sympathy for the BH or any other MSM.

They lied about the attack.

They lied about the cover up.

Are we surprised they lied about the response?

Obama can do no wrong. Literally. One pull on any of a thousand threads, and the whole cheap tapestry unravels.

The more they lie, the more perfect he necessarily must be.

So Hitlery is out of commission ... and out of sight ... because of a bump on her head? What a perfect time to get a face lift or botox! If this "bimp" is serious enough to warrant missing work for weeks then it is serious enough for a hospital. However, diplomatic flu is never about being sick. It´s about not wanting to do something and it´s a good excuse. Whether she´s still SOS or not --- put her under oath anyway!

Creepy beyond belief.

The very hallmark of insanity is the active avoidance of reality....the obsessive lying and misdirection....the feigned outrage and anger at any who dare stray close to speaking the truth.

Add in the power of the mob under the guidance of a charismatic but bat-chit crazy dictator and we have all the ingredients for a very toxic soup indeed.

So...why doesn´t the Herald send a reporter to question her HUSBAND about her condition ? ....or maybe her Daughter ? I would have 50 people asking questions about this ALL THE TIME.

Our Service men and women deserve the truth about Benghazi and IF THEY ARE GOING TO RECEIVE ADEQUATE BACK-UP when they are under fire. I´m not sure they can count on anything.

This Administration is beyond corrupt. It is disgusting.

I really don´t care if the four designated scapegoats are actually leaving their jobs. They will accomplish the same amount of useful work for the American people whether they are present or not.

I do want to see the SOS and the lying POS who dares to call himself a CIC boiled in oil for enabling and witnessing the murders of four of our countrymen without doing anything about it. They are ultimately responsible and anybody who calls himself an American, man or woman, should admit it and preferably resign in disgrace.

Maybe it was just that whatever conservative media that remains did not fully understand the language that the State Department spokes-lady used when she reported that those bureaucrats had resigned. Like they always do in bureaucracies, is have an exposed incompetent who is causing the big wigs problems after being identified, simply move to another position or billet and then start again.

Those people holding down high level positions within the State Dept. are always politically wired, in this administration most are Democrats, and they are not going to be kicked out of the Department just because they were exposed as being incompetent by some Republican politicians and conservative friendly media.

I would bet that the reason Hillary has put off her testifying is to get her story straight. They getting ready to come after Obama. He committed a crime and they´re going to get him. I believe there are enough Dem´s to go along with impeachment. Notice that Holder wants out and that EPA phony EPS chief wants out before they can holder her accountable for all of the email aliases.

Time to saddle up. It´s showdown at the OK corral.

Ghaddafi was a dictator but a friend. Obama bombed Libya without Congressional approval and he should be Impeached.
Ghaddafi was a pragmatists. He would not have allowed four brave Americans get trapped in Benghazi and get murdered.
I don´t know know if Hillary is incompetent or just a communist. I bet that if Obama had been informed that the four trapped Americans in Benghazi were blacks he would have send gunship to help them right away.

By their fruits you shall know them! What are their children like? Do they always preach one way and live another?

Our country has changed! I remember when a handshake was a contract! People could be trusted and admired for their honesty and faithfulness.

Today the only sin seems to be getting caught!

What a day it will be when we all stand before our Maker. What will He have to say about our actions? Take your pick: Welcome, good and faithful servant or depart from Me, I never knew you!

Guess heaven isn´t important anymore to those who think they can live any way they want and still inherit what we gained through Faith/Trust in Almighty God, not living according to political correctness!

Guess they wouldn´t like heaven anyway. God alone is in control and guess what, we will be full of Joy/Peace/Love, something this administration cannot give.

Pray for America! We need God to lead US!

Ridicule is how you do it too.

Thank you Boston Herald.

Plus, I find it most interesting/disturbing, to compare the two Americas... in light of Judge Robert Bork´s recent death. The result of his confirmation hearings was the introduction of a new term: ´to bork´. Meaning the destruction a man´s reputation by lying about his character.

What we have now, is the Obama Administration, in which one could (hopefully) destroy a man or woman´s reputation by telling the TRUTH about their character.

Once we could ask the question: "Have you no shame?" and elicit a shameful response.

With todays´ Liberals, there simply is NO sense of shame within them.

Why Obama Scares Me
Creators Syndicate, by Mona Charen    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 3/21/2014 8:32:16 AM     Post Reply
The most febrile of George W. Bush haters liked to claim during his tenure that the former president "scared" them. There is far more reason to be frightened by President Barack Obama, because fecklessness and inconstancy trigger wars. The outstanding example of weakness inviting aggression was the conduct of the democracies toward Adolf Hitler in the 1930s. Though it has been retroactively tainted as shameful cowardice, the policy of appeasement grew out of a "war weariness" that was far more understandable than our own. Britain and France suffered millions of dead and wounded in World War I and were desperate to

If Markos Moulitsas had his way there’d be no Affordable Care Act, no Dodd-Frank, no economic stimulus package. That’s the price when purity tests are applied to Democrats. In a remarkable post yesterday, Moulitsas, founder and publisher of the progressive community site DailyKos, celebrates the departure from the Senate of 10 moderate Democrats over the last decade, and makes clear his hope that Senators Mark Pryor (D-Ark.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) lose their tough reelection battles this year. He doesn’t name some other moderates in tight races, like Mark Begich (D-Alaska) and Kay Hagan (D-N.C.), but his logic suggests that he’d

Obamacare turns four this Sunday, and it´s never looked worse. For months, the news has not been kind. A broken promise, a broken website. Lost plans, lost doctors. Rising prices, rising frustration. Shrinking paychecks, a shrinking workforce. Unsecure data, insecure Democrats. The few Democrats willing to talk about Obamacare publicly struggle to defend the law on merits. So they´ve resorted to one last defense. They insist Republicans don´t have any ideas. Or as DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz phrased it on CNN´s Crossfire a couple months ago, "What is the Republican solution? … What is the solution to ensuring that everybody in

Public-sector unions took a big hit in Illinois Tuesday evening as a gubernatorial candidate they have poured millions of dollars into defeating seized victory in the state’s Republican primary. And now, in one of the few governor’s races Republicans see as a pickup opportunity this year, private-equity millionaire Bruce Rauner is poised to give Illinois governor Pat Quinn a run for his money and has a real shot at becoming the state’s first Republican governor in over a decade. Rauner set unions on edge during the primary campaign, criticizing their leaders and pledging to reform the state’s bankrupt pension system.

The House Oversight Committee´s investigation of the IRS is at an inflection point. The president´s congressional supporters realize that the administration´s version of the agency´s targeting of conservative nonprofits seeking tax-exempt status—such as blaming local officials in the Cincinnati office or claiming that liberal groups were victimized along with conservative groups—is nonsense. Instead of debating the substance, they have resorted to procedural antics and misleading rhetoric. I have spent a considerable amount of time and energy on the investigation—which included 38 daylong interviews of IRS and Treasury employees ranging from line employees in Cincinnati to the IRS commissioner to the chief

Is anybody looking dumber than Bill de Blasio right about now? Tuesday’s Quinnipiac University poll gave him a 45 percent public-approval rating, down from 53 percent in January. This is consistent with earlier surveys, and it is astonishingly low for a new mayor. But de Blasio has been stepping in cow pies since he took his hand off the Bible on Inauguration Day. The consequences have ranged from minor embarrassments to the humiliating drubbing he’s now taking from Gov. Cuomo on education reform.

But before we succumb to 1994 and 2010 syndrome, I’d like to say that a lot of the things that I said in the February column remain true. The fundamental consideration is this: if

Next Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments concerning constitutional challenges to Obamacare’s contraception mandate brought by Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties.

Yet civilization as we know it will collapse if the justices rule in their favor, according to the increasingly shrill prognostications of panicky liberals.

This Wednesday, an article in the New York Times reported that between 2008 and 2012 the number of adults taking medications for ADHD has increased by 53%, and that in the case of young American adults, it has nearly doubled.

Over the course of my 50-year-long career in behavioral neurology and treating patients with ADHD, it has been in the past decade that I have seen these diagnoses truly skyrocket.

First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill. Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics.

Is Barack Obama simply too busy to be Chief Executive of the United States? Apparently. One of the primary functions of the president is to keep the nation safe, to preserve it from its enemies. To do that effectively, one would actually have to maintain something of a consistent level of attention to the moving pieces that directly influence how future events will unfold. None other than the truly sycophantic thinks for a second that President Obama cares a whit for anything that does not involve fundamentally altering the social composition of this country. Or golf.

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov.

The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Black students are more likely to be suspended from U.S. public schools — even as tiny preschoolers.

Ellen DeGeneres was a completely slavish toady to President Obama as he appeared on her show to sell Obamacare -- not to young people, but to mothers.

But that isn’t the case. The biggest lease holder in the northern Alberta oil sands is a subsidiary of Koch Industries, the privately-owned
