The reinstatement of four State Department employees who were put on administrative leave following last year’s Benghazi attack only further has only reinforced Pat Smith’s believe that Hillary Clinton should never be president. Smith’s son, Sean, was one of four Americans who died in the 9/11 attack on the American diplomatic facility in Benghazi. On Fox News this morning, Smith said that the former secretary of state had broken her promise to the grieving mother to hold the people accountable for the security failure. According to Smith, Clinton told her she would investigate the attack and contact her, but she never
God bless this woman. I believe we need to FLOOD this woman with cards of support. If we send them to Hannity, he will see she gets them. To think the other families, colleagues of these dead Americans are absolutely silent is just.....horrid.
I cringe in shame for the loved ones of the other three victims, who are silent. Pat Smith honors her son´s memory and speaks out so that Hillary isn´t rewarded for her role in their deaths, and the lies she told standing in front of their caskets.
No one has the moral authority this woman does and I doubt she will forget it. The other families would help bring more attention to this if they would band together as a group and demand justice for their murdered sons. No one deserves to be confronted for her neglect more than Hillary Clinton. Whenever she makes a public appearance, she needs to be reminded that four men are dead because of her decisions. After the incident she did accept responsibility. The honorable thing would have been to resign, but she is a Clinton of dubious character and thought she could lie herself out of the situation.
The media will just portray her comments as the deranged rants of a grief stricken mother when if fact she has brilliantly condensed the volumes of material written about Hillary into one simple truth - "You don´t want this person to be president"
The travesty of hillary and obama greeting the bodies of these men who gave their all for America makes me sick to my stomach. The best and the bravest met by the worst and the most cowardly who take and use all for their own. God is with Mrs. Smith so whomever is against her will not triumph.
The excerpt posted here from NRO needs some editing. How did this get past the editor? He/she must have been on vacation with Samantha Powers. Does that sentence make sense? (believe should be belief)

The RNC needs to have Pat Smith make a series of commercials right now in preparation for 2016. It will ensure that no mysterious accident or illness will befall the mother of an American hero whose blood is on the hands of Hillary Clinton.
Was a liar when living in Arkansas. Duh... Nobody listens nor do they read a face very well. Our nation is full of those blind to motives and history. Hillary is a crook on par with any crime lord. So are many in government. Nobody listens.
The Art of The Lie. Some people have it some don´t. If you have it, then you are supremely qualified to be President. Hillary learned from the best in the business. Now we have The T-Box Boi as the Chairman of the Bored who is probably the biggest and best liar anyone has ever seen. He can lie with a smile on his face, seamlessly, smoothly and no one knows they are being lied to, and when discovered he is lying, no one challenges him or says one word. How can you beat that?! Hillary is doing a good job of trying.
Don´t forget that Hillary, (a.k.a. the Butch of Benghazi) has the blood of all those killed and injured in the mulitple attacks that occured around the glove AFTER she brought that obscure video to the muslim world´s attention when she tried to use it to cover her tracks.
Ha, Hillary tried to cover her tracks but it´s easy to pick out the hooves from the feet. Benghazi will be the event that "steals" the presidency from her if it gets the warranted attention. She is responsible for multiple deaths and her anger during her questioning session is the admission of guilt. Any responsible person in the SecState position would have had the Marines in there at the first phone call from the embassy.
# 19 how the Lames handle an uncomfortable issue- they are silent. Witness the two latest examples of black hate crimes on a white person, both resulting in death. As for the Beast, 2016 is way off and Issa isn´t done yet. Let´s look forward to 2014.
And I honestly do think Bill Clinton made a deal with the devil, if there was any doubt about that. His path wasn´t beaten using the Golden Rule. Hillary was there and asked for the same favor. Both are going to a very uncomfortable place.
With all due respect, Mrs. Smith´s not trying to, nor is she, preaching to the choir. She´s trying to, with all the courage and conviction she raised her son to have, tell others the truth. Those who don´t know her or her story need to know.
Hysteria: The Environmental Protection Agency chief says global warming is the most urgent threat to public health. Given that the whole climate change frightfest has fallen apart, how do people keep saying such things? EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy says she has dedicated her life to protecting the environment. It´s too bad she is not more dedicated to reality. If she were, her comments Monday before the left-wing Center for American Progress would have been different. But McCarthy knew who she was speaking to and told the group what it wanted to hear when she said, "I really see no greater issue and
´We have communicated in no uncertain terms with every player in the region that that´s a red line for us and that there would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons."— Barack Obama, Aug. 20, 2012 "First of all, if you´ve got health insurance, you like your doctors, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Nobody is talking about taking that away from you."—Barack Obama, multiple versions What would you rather be: an American lost inside an ObamaCare exchange or a Syrian rebel?
Contrary to what you might have heard, there really was a world communist conspiracy.Its purpose was not just agitation but propaganda. To bring it about, V.I. Lenin recruited a special corps of propagandists for what was to become the Communist International. For a fanatic like Lenin, it wasn´t enough merely to have a communist revolution in Russia. He wanted communism to take over the world, the fulfillment of Marx´s exhortation "Workers of the world, unite!" according to Stephane Courtois and Jean-Louis Panne, authors of "The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression," published in 1999. Lenin also feared that unless other countries
For all of their mutual public admiration, Presidents Clinton and Obama react differently to political trouble. Bill moved to the middle, while Barack always moves left. So it´s no surprise that Mr. Obama is responding to his ObamaCare rollout slump by doing his best Elizabeth Warren imitation. Mr. Obama returned to his favorite theme of rising income inequality on Wednesday, which he called "the defining challenge of our time." He ought to know since few Presidents have done more to increase inequality than he has. Median household income has fallen since the economic recovery began, while the rich who own capital
Immigration: Strong signs point to House Speaker John Boehner leading an amnesty cave-in that delivers millions of new Democratic votes. Republicans should man up and put border security front and center. The two words "Becky Tallent" resonate with conservatives in Congress the way "Howard Baker" did when Ronald Reagan welcomed the liberal Republican senator as chief of staff during Iran-Contra, bringing most of the Reagan agenda to a screeching halt; or the way the words "Susan Kennedy" did a decade ago when newly elected California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger crushed his supporters by hiring the hard-line Democratic operative as chief of staff. Speaker
In a wide-ranging economic stump speech Wednesday, President Obama focused laser-like on the growing gap between America´s rich and poor, despite polling that shows hardly anyone believes it´s the most pressing issue facing the U.S. The issue-pivot was an effort to help him move away from the drumbeat of criticism of his policies on health insurance reform and Iran´s nuclear program, one White House insider said on background. ´Rising inequality and declining mobility is bad for our democracy,´ he said during an event hosted by the far-left Center for American Progress. ´People get the bad taste that the system is rigged.´ ´I believe
With all of Bubba´s women, it turns out he had a thing for Mary Jane too. Former President Bill Clinton said Tuesday that despite his denials in 1992, he was always honest about his past marijuana use. ´I never denied that I used marijuana,´ Clinton told Jorge Ramos on Fusion TV. ´I told the truth.´ But during a campaign event before his first presidential election, then-Arkansas Gov. Clinton said he was no pothead. ´When I was in England, I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and didn´t like it,´ Clinton said then. ´I didn´t inhale, and I didn´t try it again.´ Clinton dissembled whtn
Legacies as a concept are deeply embedded in our legal system. A person with assets writes a will designating which ones will go to which relative, friend, charity, or others. Not long ago some imaginative news media person decided to call the in-office record of elected officials “legacies.” In monkey-see-monkey-do fashion, the notion was being repeated by reporter after reporter. The distinction between a legacy of assets and an ephemeral one such as a politician’s record has been lost among the media. A legacy is a gift; thus, the politician is bestowing his policy or legislative gift on his grateful recipients. Or,
December 1 has come and gone with fresh assurances from the Obama administration that the federal exchange website, HealthCare.gov, will work for approximately 80 percent of its visitors. A review of the website, and the state of the health-care plans offered via the state exchanges, suggests that the problem of absent or incomplete information regarding plans that exclude coverage of elective abortions and abortion-inducing drugs and devices is far from fixed. The problem is multi-layered. First and foremost, the federal exchange continues to offer little or no information on abortion coverage, and what does exist there is profoundly misleading. A search
Democrats are getting desperate in the defense of their troubled health-care law, with one congressman comparing the law’s troubled rollout to problems with his baby granddaughter. “I’ve got a one-year-old granddaughter, and on Thanksgiving Day she had a number of little glitches, but we’re not ready to throw her away because of a glitch here and there,” Representative Emanuel Cleaver (D., Mo.) said on MSNBC on Tuesday. “Most things in the beginning stages are going to be difficult to pull off.”
During today´s White House Youth Summit, President Obama called on young people to do whatever they can to promote his signature health care law — including plying their customers with cheap booze. "If you are a bartender, have a happy hour," Obama said as the crowd laughed. "And also probably get health insurance because a lot of people don´t have it." Obama also encouraged young people who are student body presidents or workers at nonprofit organizations to help people get enrolled. "If you´ve got a radio show, spread the word on air," Obama added. Obama called on young people´s sense of patriotism to join
RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, the assault on the traditional, standard American way of life continues unabated, and it is being conducted by a minority of people in this country. There´s an amazing poll out there today from the Investor´s Business Daily, Investors.com which illustrates just what an extreme minority today´s Democrat Party and the American left really is, in terms of minority, in terms of thinking, the body of thought in this country represented by them. It´s stunning, but at the same time it´s optimistic in a sense to learn just how insignificant in numbers they are. Now, that doesn´t tell
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
MSNBC has announced that Chris Matthews, Barack Obama´s most excitable fan, will be interviewing the President on Thursday´s Hardball. Fawning over the liberal politician is incredibly common among journalists, but Matthews has taken it to a whole new level. According to the network host, Obama is a "perfect," "cool," brilliant figure who is comparable to Jesus, Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. The verbose Matthews has no filter when it comes to the Democrat, even once bizarrely blurting out that an Obama speech made him "forget" that the commander in chief "was black." To prepare you for the likely love-fest
Continued global warming poses a risk of rapid, drastic changes in some human and natural systems, a scientific panel warned Tuesday, citing the possible collapse of polar sea ice, the potential for a mass extinction of plant and animal life and the threat of immense dead zones in the ocean. At the same time, some worst-case fears about climate change that have entered the popular imagination can be ruled out as unlikely, at least over the next century, the panel found. These include a sudden belch of methane from the ocean or the Arctic that would fry the planet, as
