Hillary Gives Away the Game
American Thinker, by Daren Jonescu

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 1/28/2013 5:46:07 AM

Hillary Clinton´s angry flip-out at Senator Ron Johnson during her Benghazi testimony was a charmed moment. All at once, before the whole world, one of the highest ranking progressive authoritarians on the planet spilled the beans -- all of them -- about the left´s modus operandi. The revelation might be overlooked, however, if we focus too closely on Clinton´s easily quotable "What difference does it make?" The line as quoted merely shows Clinton to be a trapped liar trying to fake her way through an awkward moment with pomposity and bravado.

Hillary running and winning puts the final nails in the coffin of the republic.
The USA cannot endure 12-16 consecutive years of Democrat presidencies.

"What difference does it make"

That...

The Senate has yet to pass a budget?
More children are killed by abortion (55 million and counting) than people in wars?
The MSM lies about what Washington is really doing to Main Street?
The accumulated deficit is over 16Trillion?
Our unfunded mandates are over 120 Trillion dollars?
Washington is bought each election cycle by Party and Lobby money?
The US Constitution is being violated each and every day?
We are now a Nation operating with “Taxation without Representation”?
Progressives define a reduction in the growth of spending as a “cut”?

It makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE!
In 1775, England was kicked out of the Colonies.
There’s a storm brewing, America.

Freedom is at stake and the Freedom Fighters are leaving the Parties in droves.
The pendulum will start to swing back from the Progressive left and get back to our Founding Father’s values!

We’re the “Change” we’ve been waiting for!

A very astute catch by Mr. Jonescu.

Reminds me of back when, when mention of such a bizarre concept as "gay marriage" (though still not even conceived, especially not by gays) would´ve been relegated to the loony bin by even the most open-minded of Democrats. Now, step by step by step, the Left has cleverly maneuvered it into a supposedly self-evident "right".

With their own twisted logic, Clinton is correct, in a way. "At this point" it really doesn´t matter that al-Qaeda was behind the Benghazi attack - Obama won reelection: that was what mattered, and nothing else.

At no point can honesty ever enter the modus operandi of the Left. They know it better than we seem to.

Had Condi Rice lost it and gone out of control with a childish tantrum the way Hillary did, there would have been a huge outcry in the media. Instead, the media is praising Hillary for her passion. "What difference does it make" directly contradicts Hillary´s earlier resolution to find who was behind the attack and bring him/them to justice.

What bothers me most is that the Obama Administration, its agencies and Hillary are permitted to stall by OUR SIDE. Once again, the GOP allows Democrats to set the guidelines, never questioning them, never putting the force of law behind their requests for information.

The Left is allowed to get away with stalling tactics, destroying evidence or not providing it, running out the clock, and generally being lawless. They wouldn´t do it if we did something about it.

It is long past time for the GOP to rise up and stick to the legal requirements they set for the provision of information from Democrats. If the GOP doesn´t begin showing some spine, they should not be surprised when a Third Party springs up to handle what they seem disinclined to dirty their hands with.

We know the Left are elitists. Now we know that too much of the GOP are, too. That must stop. Yesterday. The GOP, reluctant to do the hard things and fight dirty, will continue to lose elections until they get some cojones.

Man, what a fine article. One of the best. Lead America with bad progressive policies ´forward´ into the future. To waters so deep, no one can be saved and then shout ´what difference....at this point...does it make? We can´t change course, we must now suffer and die. The Titanic is going down,,,,what difference...at this point...does it make if the Captain made a mistake.

Mr. Jonesu does a fine job of detailing the tactics of the Left. Of course, the antidote to this tactic is bull dog Congress that has the spine to say, “No dammit, we are not leaving this room until we have answers. Get the president over here if you have to.” Unfortunately, the clubby, chummy relationships in Washington don’t lend themselves to that. We badly need to install some pay-for-performance modalities in Congress.

To anyone normal, that moment "what difference, at this point, does it make" would be appalling. But that moment is actually being used by her acolytes as a fist in the air moment of triumph. It´s sick. They don´t care about its selfishness, its illogic, its hubris, its callousness. All they care about is, "a strong woman, roaring, speaking truth to power, sister!" For them, it doesn´t make a difference. She´s right.

And of course progressives like the Clintons and Obama will say it´s all to help us, for the children or some other lame statement, but as poster M2 pointed out. Where is the "loyal opposition" in all this ?? I expect Clinton, et al to pursue their goals but I also expect(ed) our side to challenge/counter them.

Instead, we get so called future leaders of the GOP like Sen Rubio backing off, and even worse, praising Hillary. Did all these members (of all parties) of Congress sign some kind of pact with the Devil to sell out We the People and the Constitution for power and wealth?

Did anyone else notice Hillary glancing back and forth at her notes while she was wailing "What difference does it make?" These (can I resurrect an old term?) Pinkos are as dangerous as ever when their lies are not confronted.

If only we could resurrect the McCarran Internal Security Act to ferret out the Communist sympathizers. Put some Conservatives in charge and we just may. Dreaming... Mr. Obama, are you now or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?

Not only will Hillary win, but it´s going to be a landslide. GOPs decision to go the amnesty route means that Rubio is the establishment´s candidate. I suppose the wizards of The Stupid Party expect long lines of Latinos to vote for the slick Cuban rather than the free goodies offered by Miss Clinton. I think Paul Ryan has already endorsed Miss Clinton. The GOP is disintegrating as we speak.

On KFI640 one caller said that that type of drone is armed. so lets say the Caller was wrong or only half-correct.
Then lefts find out what kind it is on drone, and as for ´what difference did it make´,lets find out if it was armed ,if the rockets were fired and under whose orders.
Like the Wategate question: "what did the Regime know and when did they know it."
At the least then lets subpoena the guys/gals that operate the Drones and elicit their testimony.

Interesting read, and mostly correct.

However...
One part was strange.

FTA --
"FDR rammed New Deal legislation through an intimidated Supreme Court"

Really?
Legislation goes through Congress.
It only goes to the Supremes as a result of lawsuits after various appellate courts
have an earlier crack at it.

The Supreme Court and its "nine old men" as FDR complained, voided some of the New Deal.
(Works Progress Admin or somesuch, for example.)

After his 1936 landslide re-election, FDR blew all his second-term political capital
on a doomed scheme to expand the Supreme Court to 15 members and, after that,
"pack the Court" with his own appointees in the newer slots.

This failed, and FDR´s mojo was revived only by facing off against Fascists by
running for a third term.
His domestic policies were a failure -- unemployment was 16 percent when the
Japanese attacked the U.S. Navy fleet at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo saved FDR´s career and reputation as a prez, as he
opposed them effectively.

The Supremes -- SCOTUS -- flummoxed FDR quite successfully, in fact.
In his second term they had him whipped.

"What difference - at this point - does it make?"

Can you even imagine how horrible those words sound to the families and friends of those brave men who were murdered in Benghazi under Hillary´s watch? Or how it sounds to American diplomats who are currently posted in dangerous places? Or how it sounds to us, citizens of a republic whose government is charged with protecting its diplomats?

Hillary as one of the great secretaries of state?!? Barry is kidding, right? Right???

Compared to George Shultz, James Baker, Condi Rice, Dean Acheson, John Foster Dulles, and George Marshall, Hillary is a profoundly unserious, rank amateur and a transparent phony.

The only way to fight back and win is to push back constantly and never give up. Liberalism grows worse when people surrender in the face of its "charm". I see this happening right now on the issue of immigration.

It isn´t just a person-to-person battle but a conceptual one. Concepts are everything. Liberals use slogans like "everybody else is doing it so why can´t we?" or "we know what´s best for you" to charm their way into our hearts. Then, they´ve won us over to their concept of permissiveness - a world without boundaries, without morals, and ultimately without truth.

Perfect headline. Yes it is a game. And making Progressive gains is all about Gamesmanship. No principles whatsoever. The idea for them is always, ´´What sort of strategy or tactic will work this time?´´ ´´Should we bamboozle, or should we take great umbrage and guilt the country toward our goals, or should we demonize our opponents, or should we just shove our policy down their throats ´ cause we can´´, or [insert another angle here], etc., etc., etc...

Obama and Hillary´s game was obviously to fog the Benghazi issue, delay the fact finding, until a point that they could say, ´´What difference does it make, NOW?´´... Just another game out of their gamemanship playbook.

And once again the dumb Republicans are surprised like Charlie Brown and the football... Lucy knows the game, and so does Hillary.

Calling a Spade a ´Garden Implement´

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

Barack Obama´s Constant State
of Cognitive Dissonance

Posted By: DW626- 1/25/2014 7:16:10 AM     Post Reply
Contradicting the faultless, albeit far-fetched image he has of himself, Barack Obama is a man harassed by truth. That´s why, judging from his inability to accept personal responsibility, Barack Obama must be living in a constant state of agitated cognitive dissonance. The late Leon Festinger is the social psychologist who proposed the theory of cognitive dissonance. According to Festinger, until the person suffering with perceptual disharmony can find a way to justify wrong actions and decisions, it´s impossible to achieve a calm mental state, especially when those wrong actions and decisions challenge the way the cognitively dissonant individual sees himself.

A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s.

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable. The reformers´ success in providing

One is a world leader who has been praised for his humility and outlook on the world. The other is an American president, once the international superstar of the political stage. So it is no surprise that President Barack Obama has travelled to the Vatican in Rome possibly to get some tips from the popular Pope Francis who now even has own weekly glossy magazine dedicated to him. As he sat down with the Pontiff at the Vatican this morning, Obama called himself a ´great admirer´ of the pope. Their historic first meeting comes as Obama´s administration and the church

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

Joe Newby at The Washington Examiner has found a real doozy of a “comedian.” Her name is Laura Levites – with obviously no connection to the priests of the Old Testament. (She´s an atheist with a fondness for Ricky Gervais.) "I would personally like to castrate every Male Conservative Christian so that they have NO reproductive rights," she wrote on Twitter, using the hashtag "#HobbyLobby." She certainly knows how to draw attention to herself. Newby said that’s not all. She also expressed her hatred of Christians in a tweet calling conservative Christians "******bags," claiming they are "really trying" her patience.
