Jeb Bush Giving
HillaryClinton a Medal
for Advancing
´Ideals of Freedom´

Cybercast News Service, by Barbara Hollingsworth

Original Article

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will present the National Constitution Center’s (NCC) 2013 Liberty Medal to Hillary Clinton during a Sept. 10 ceremony in Philadelphia, one day before the first-year anniversary of the terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya while Clinton was secretary of state. “The Liberty Medal recognizes individuals who have furthered the ideals of freedom, democracy, and equality, often against great odds,” NCC President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen said. “Hillary Clinton has devoted her life to expanding opportunities for ‘We the People’ not just in this country but around the globe.” “Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to

Everything the Clintons and Bushes do together is a joke. They pat each other on the back for spending our money to help others, however deserving, which may not be best to examine closely.
A conservative would not give that hag a stick of gum, let alone a medal with the word Freedom in it´s title.

How can young people understand the significance of honor and trust in the world if we blur it with this gingerbread.

She and her named and unnamed co-conspirators had already cost us too much.

Jeb is looking for nomination to the RINO Hall of Fame and it´s lifetime achievement award in recognition of his support of Hillary. Unfortunately, John McCain will win in a landslide but don´t underestimate Jeb.

The Bush/Clinton relationship is becoming a bit incestuous.

Another reason Jeb shouldn´t be running in 2016. Perhaps he would be better served asking her questions about Benghazi and Syria.

McCain, Lindsey Graham, Rubio, now Jeb Bush! There must be something in the water in Washington. There is a theory that the fall of Rome was due to lead poisoning. Only the wealthy had lead plumbing which of course was not understood back then. All of the Roman leader ship went crazy due to the lead.

This is another example of why Jeb will never, ever do. He is another clueless egotist like John McCain. The egotism would be OK, even useful if he knew what he was doing. But since he does not, it is dangerous. Sleeping with the enemy is never a good idea. And bizarre as it sounds and is, neither McCain nor Jeb Bush nor some other RINOs realize that Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, many if not most Muslims, the entire Democratic party etc. are their enemies. What do they hope to achieve by honoring their enemies for anything - even something that on its own merits might deserve honor? They seem to think such foolish and self-destructive behavior demonstrates that they are broad-minded, tolerant and above petty partisan politics. That approach would be fine and work well if their enemies followed suit. Alas, their enemies being their enemies, they do not reciprocate. Nor are enemies to be won over by such shallow symbolic gestures, gestures which they -the enemies- rightly regard as signs of weakness and confusion.

Politics is about friends and enemies. Politicians who cannot or will not recognize enemies are in the wrong business. Mitt Romney is another case in point. Poor Mitt, Dudley Do-Right, Mr. Clean, the Guy Who Is Above It All, probably STILL does not realize that his political enemies hate and want to destroy him. Such naivete might be commendable in other professions; in politics it is invariably fatal. Mitt let a lot of Americans down because he refused to recognize and deal appropriately with his political enemies. That is basically why he lost the election.

The only thing the "former secretary" has dedicated her life to is furthering her own political ends and feathering her own nest, so she can live off the public until the end of her days.

We´ve had no one since Reagan that visibly loved America. The Clintons and the Obamas are the worst of the worst.

This government will never get its head right until these liars are shamed. Clinton stood at the podium in front of the relatives whose loved ones were killed in Benghazi and lied to their face for political reasons.

And Jeb Bush will reward that? The least he could have done is publicly refused to present the medal to a proven liar and cheat! Instead, it´s Jeb Bush who gets the shame.

So Jeb Bush has humiliated himself by giving "the most humiliated woman in the world" a meaningless medal

I wonder if Bill "Horn Dog" Clinton was there to watch the woman he made into "the most humiliated woman in the world" get her meaningless medal?

I wonder if "the second most humiliated woman in the world", Humma Weiner, was there to carry it for "the most humiliated woman in the world"?

How do any of these people, especially Jeb Bush, think we can take them seriously?

One thing I will say for them, THEY GOT CHUTZPHA!

There is no honor among thieves or most politicians. This is shameful. The only thing Hillary Clinton ever advanced is her own political career. Her climb to the top is littered with bodies of innocent Americans she destroyed on the way. The proof is there for anyone with eyes to see.

This "Liberty Medal" is an insult to those whose lives have been destroyed, not to mention Chris Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith & Glen Doherty.

On September 10? Exactly one year ago, four Americans, one an Ambassador doing Hillary´s bidding, were alive. The next night they were dead. Goodness only knows how many others have been imprisoned in their own lives in an attempt to keep us from learning the terrible truth about Benghazi and freedom-loving Hillary. Jeb is a disgrace to be a party to this fraud. Pray for all Hillary´s victims and their families.

I would like to see WDDIM asked every time Hillary and her "accomplishments" touted -

what good has she done for our nation in all the years since she has appeared on the scene?

Hopefully, one benefit of this incident is that it will wake up those contemplating a vote for Jeb Bush in the future.

#22, I recall reading an article once that claimed Reagan didn´t choose Bush; he was forced to take him by the party elite to mollify the establishment Republicans that thought him too conservative. As for the relationship between the Bush family and the Clinton´s, I think they have one very big thing in common—they are Globalists.

It´s like giving your sister in law a medal! Remember, Barbara says the toad Bill is "like a son" to her.

Want to know why Barbara has ingratiated herself with the Clintons and denigrated conservatives? She wants to make sure that the liberals who write all the history books set down the Bush Dynasty in glowing terms. Have you noticed the last few years, the liberals have gone from mocking out of touch George to gushing about his little matching socks, and how wise and wonderful he is now.

The Bushes and the Clintons have tons in common, and it is mostly their obnoxious greed for power and status.

My husband had to interview Laura and apparently she smokes like a chimney and we know now that she is pro abortion and pro gay marriage. The only one I feel fond for is W, I kind of feel sorry for him. He seems to be the only sincere one in the bunch. But it´s almost like an Onion story where he´s gone from being the president of the United States to painting cheesy portraits of fluffy poodles and cats. I think he is the only one who has serious guilt and regret about sending so many of our soldiers into war and death and painting is how he deals with it along with visiting so many injured soldiers. I do question the intelligence of the Bushes. As much as I like W, after two full terms he still couldn´t string two sentences together. Very strange.

Jeb Bush’s wife, family

If Jeb Bush decides to run for president, he’ll have to defend his family’s controversial political name. But more immediate family concerns might keep him from running at all.Republican donors and operatives are chattering about Bush’s publicity-shy wife, so worried she isn’t on board with a 2016 White House run that they’re urging people in the family’s orbit to make the case. Columba Bush has long been deeply averse to the spotlight, especially after an embarrassing encounter with U.S. Customs while her husband was still in office.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has launched an unprecedented effort to defend vulnerable pro-business incumbents in Republican primaries this year, is enlisting a big gun to boost its favored candidate in Idaho. In a new Chamber ad, former presidential nominee Mitt Romney touts his support of Idaho Rep. Mike Simpson, an establishment Republican facing a difficult May 20 primary. Romney endorsed Simpson last year, but this is his first foray into television ads in the 2014 cycle. “You can take it from me,” Romney says in the spot. “The conservative choice for Congress is Mike Simpson.”

No, it’s not that he’s a former lobbyist (though he is). Or that he worked in George W. Bush’s White House (he did), ran the Republican National Committee (that too) and has said he was “torn” between rooting for the Redskins and the Eagles (shudder). It’s far more sinister than that. He’s from New Jersey. Sure, Gillespie has lived for more than two decades in Virginia’s Fairfax County, where he’s raised a family, gone

After a stretch of anemic fundraising, the Karl Rove-backed American Crossroads super PAC raised more cash in March than it did during the previous 14 months combined, according to summaries of campaign filings released Monday. The GOP establishment´s favorite super PAC raised almost $5.2 million last month and had more than $6.3 million in the bank as of March 31, according to the report summary. That cash will be used as the outside group tries to help Republicans pick up the six seats they need to win control of the Senate.

Hillary Clinton is Obama´s
George H.W. Bush:
The designated successor
Washington Examiner, by Hugh Hewitt    Original Article
Posted By: tisHimself- 4/14/2014 10:48:03 AM     Post Reply
There are very few genuinely new moments in American politics. Ronald Reagan´s election in 1980 was one of them. President Obama´s triumph in 2008 another. Both were transformative elections, presidencies and men. And both led to parties that struggled for a voice after their defining leader left the scene. George H.W. Bush was a safe and reliable choice for the GOP in 1988: a longtime Washington hand with a golden resume and a seemingly endless and loyal list of supporters and donors. Lots of folks didn´t like him, of course, inside his own party, inside the Democrats, inside the media and outside

´Tax Man´ Obama has

April 15 is a hard day for many, as their annual federal tax bill comes due. But it could have been worse. According to a new report, President Obama has sought 442 tax increases since taking office, though most have died because of congressional opposition. Having included 93 new taxes in his fiscal 2015 budget, the anti-tax Americans for Tax Reform reviewed his proposals since his 2009 Inauguration to determine just how tax-friendly the president has been. Their conclusion: He´s very friendly. "History tells us what Obama was able to do. This list reminds us of what Obama wanted to do," said Grover

Chances of getting audited

Washington - As millions of Americans race to meet Tuesday´s tax deadline, their chances of getting audited are lower than they have been in years. Budget cuts and new responsibilities are straining the Internal Revenue Service´s ability to police tax returns. This year, the IRS will have fewer agents auditing returns than at any time since at least the 1980s. Taxpayer services are suffering, too, with millions of phone calls to the IRS going unanswered. "We keep going after the people who look like the worst of the bad guys," IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said in an interview. "But there are going to be some

The U.S. made clear this week that it wants the International Monetary Fund to be the emergency lender for countries like Ukraine, but American lawmakers have persistently refused to give the IMF the additional financial firepower that it has sought. That tension was evident in meetings concluding this weekend of the IMF, the World Bank and representatives of the Group of 20 major economies: Washington´s long delay in ratifying changes to the IMF´s so-called quota system came under fire from finance ministers and other officials of many countries.

Connecticut estate sells for
$120 million, a U.S. record

A Greenwich, Conn., estate called Copper Beech Farm has sold for $120 million, making it the most expensive recorded home sale in the U.S. Priced as high as $190 million, the 50.5-acre estate centers on an 1890s French Renaissance-style home of 13,519 square feet that sits on 4,000 feet of waterfront. The price surpasses private-equity chief Tully Friedman´s $117.5-million sale last year of a nearly 9,000-square-foot home in Woodside, Calif. Named for copper beech trees on the site, the estate in Greenwich was sold by timber tycoon John Rudey. Reached by way of a 1,800-foot-long driveway, the main house features a three-story paneled

I´ve been a Republican activist all my life. As a volunteer and professional staffer, I held positions in party organizations and campaigns since high school. I was the ultimate partisan team player, even forming GOProud, an organization for gay conservatives and their allies. But I no longer recognize the party I grew up supporting, and I recently announced that I have changed my voter registration to "no party". I left the Republican party because it no longer represents my principles and values. I am a limited government conservative, yet Republicans today like big government, as long as they are in charge

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
