No way Hillary could ever
gain our troops’ trust

Boston Herald, by Adriana Cohen

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/2/2014 5:24:50 AM

Despite conventional wisdom, Republicans and Democrats can agree on important issues. As a lifelong Republican, I agree with Democrat Warren Buffett: Obamacare should be scrapped. I also agree with Hollywood liberals that NSA spying on millions of innocent Americans is a violation of our collective right to privacy. And I agree with feminist Camille Paglia that Hillary Clinton disqualified herself as a presidential candidate with her handling of Benghazi. Here’s why: The most important duty of the commander in chief is to keep Americans safe. Before the deadly Sept 11, 2012, attack resulting in the brutal murders of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens,

It´s called dereliction of duty. She failed. Obama went to bed early so he could fly to CA to party with the wealthy Socialists in Hollywood. They really don´t care as long as they have the power and money. The idea of that woman even running for President gives me the creeps.

Trust a woman who will lie to grieving families for political gain? Please. Hillary is so steeped in political chicanery she should hide her face in shame. She won´t. Therefore, we must do it for her. Get the hook and pull her off the political stage.

#1 If the woman was like Golda Meir or Margaret Thatcher or Sarah Palin I wouldn´t hesitate to vote for a woman for President. But hillary isn´t like any of them and she could care less about the trust of the troops. Her husband loathed the military the way I loath the msm and I expect she loathes the military as well. If she gets elected look for more of the purges of the military started by obama, less funding and more overall destruction of the greatest military the world has ever see. The last thing a leftist like hillary will do is protect the country. God help us if she follows obama as President the Republic will be destroyed Period!

Obama has already proved that an anti-American can be elected and then re-elected to the post of CIC. In this age of low information voter, Hillary would need to dis someone´s favorite TV show or rap artist to be disqualified.

And Susan Rice´s excuse that Hillary had not appeared on the day of Rice´s fateful 5-appearance "It was the video" Lie-a-thon was that Hillary "had had a very stressful week."

I am sure that a CIC has MANY stressful weeks. Many 3 am phone calls.

So Hillary calls in sick??

Remember her "fall" and "bump on the head"? What a total crock.

A fine bill of particulars from Adriana. Well done.
Leave Four Men Behind Hilary, is finished, as tightly defined by Adriana. This is not a complex matter.
It´s simplified dereliction of duty, and this story must be told again and again to counter the onslaught of the government propagandists aka NYSlimes, WaPo Sawyers, Pelley, that is, all the government worshipful press and media indoctrinating propagandists, posing as traitorous news actors.

The very interesting, "BUT FOR" legal principle, applies here.
BUT FOR the press media censorship of Hilary´s vicious act of brutality against our own men in harm´s way, but for that cover up media conspiracy, Hilary would be disgraced, if not charged with dereliction of duty, and LONG GONE, drummed out of any credibility . Toast !

Hillary and Zippy should have been forced to memorize the Ranger Creed whose 5th stanza ends with "I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country". The former Secretary of State and the president left good Americans to die. They will have to answer for that. The real truth will come out. Hillary Clinton will never be president of these United States.

Cold hard fact is the trrops don´t have to trust just obey. Any order issued by the Commander in Chief, unless unlawful, has to be obeyed or that person can be considered in dereliction of duty or disobeying a direct order and could be thusly charged.

The only way out of that dilemma would be for the entire army to refuse to obey. Gives you pause to wonder what the TSA is for?

Can people not see shades of Germany 1932 in all this?

It is precisely because Miss Hillary would be a reprehensible and irresponsible commander in chief that the Democrats want her in that position. "Progressives" hate the US military like no other enemy, so what better way to tear the military down than giving control of it to a national defence laughingstock? If you think that´s an exaggeration, you haven´t noticed the Marxist pot smoker who´s in charge of it now.

Arguing with Democrats that Monica´s former boyfriend´s pretend wife would make a bad commander in chief is pointless - that´s why they want her in command!

What difference does it make? Liberals and democrats will vote for her anyway. Military votes will not be counted (didn´t get them in time, lost in the trunk of a car, etc). She could easily win in 2016 after amnesty if granted to millions of undocumented,non-working voters.

FAR: ´´The military doesn´t have to trust her, just obey her.´´

Trust is a key requirement for leadership. The military are not slaves, existing for a leader´s amusement. She will not be trusted because the military knows that she despises them.

Hillary will not only suffer lack of trust, but the military will despise her. The top generals, who are nothing more than politicians, will toady up to her (they don´t have the honor to fall on their swords- figuretivly speaking- for the welfare of the troops.)

It will be difficult to maintain a volunteer force with a witch like Hillary.

There was a military contingent at Benghazi who also pleaded to stay and protect that outpost. What happened? The Hildebeast determined they were needed for a sporting event in the Caribbean and removed them.

Remember when the military refused to salute the Horn Dog and turned their back on him? Both Clintonistas viscerally hate the military.

Over 100 years of presidential (and

For a vice president’s daughter, Sarah Gore had a low-key wedding on Sunday in Carpinteria, Calif. But second weddings tend to be more modest affairs, and Sarah, 35, like her parents and her big sisters Kristin and Karenna, is a veteran of a failed marriage. She married Santa Barbara real-estate agent Patrick Maiani this weekend under a pine near a coffee shop, having previously wed tech investor Bill Lee, in 2007. Here are some other daughters of presidents and vice presidents who had splashy weddings.

Kentucky Republican Sen.

There still is some fraud. And so we should stop that, and one way of doing it is (driver’s licenses).” Paul said, according to a Washington Post transcript. “Although the incidence of fraud is relatively small,” Axelrod responded. “It probably is, and I think Republicans may have overemphasized this. I don’t know,” Paul responded. According to the Post, Paul noted that he does support voter ID but unlike some Republicans, who

The wife of an Illinois man who drowned after a brutal swan attack is suing the condo complex where he tended the birds. Amy Hensley claims the vicious April 2012 assault in Des Plaines "caused or contributed to" the death of her husband Anthony. And she blames the Bay Colony Drive complex, where it occurred, Hillcrest Property Management and his bosses at Knox Swan and Dog for not realizing the danger he was in. In a lawsuit filed against the trio last week, she said: "The presence of the mute swans on the premises rendered it unreasonably dangerous." And she claimed “(The defendants) knew

It is unfortunate that events generally require the commission of a crime of unspeakable magnitude in some unsuspecting community before the media is prodded to, yet again, take up the long overdue reexamination of the various “hate crime” laws peppering the legal code of the federal government and most of the states. Such was the unfortunate case yet again in April of 2014 when Fraizer Glenn Miller, a former grand wizard of the Klan, opened fire at a Jewish community center and an adult care facility in Kansas. Whether Miller “succeeded” in his desire to kill Jews or not (he didn’t,

Gentlemanliness is, without a doubt, Britain´s most enduring export. For Evelyn Waugh, writing breathlessly to Nancy Mitford in 1956, it provided no less than an explanation for ‘all our national greatness´. But, although he spent his entire life in thrall to the concept, he never explained what he actually meant by it. He, like most of us, assumed that you simply knew a gentleman when you saw one. Other writers have only managed to come up with partial definitions. For George Bernard Shaw, a gentleman always ‘puts more into the world than he takes out´. Oscar Wilde thought that a gentleman

Good news: thanks to a ruling by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Monday, the "most transparent administration in history" is going to have to tell American citizens when it believes it´s legally entitled to kill them. The lawsuit arose out of Freedom of Information Act requests by two New York Times reporters for Office of Legal Counsel memoranda exploring the circumstances under which it would be legal for U.S. personnel to target American citizens. The administration stonewalled, asserting that "the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such documents is itself classified," and a federal district judge

How Lindsey Graham

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. — Sen. Lindsey Graham recognized the threat years before it had a chance to form — and knew immediately what he had to do. After the tea party wave in the 2010 election, right-wing groups were itching to get one of South Carolina’s newly elected conservative congressmen to challenge Graham, the blunt-spoken, deal-making congressional veteran of two decades. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a favorite of the grass roots, was high on their list. So when Graham got wind in 2012 that Mulvaney wanted a seat on the House Financial Services Committee, he quietly lobbied his longtime friend, Speaker John Boehner, to

The Problem With Student-Loan Forgiveness

If you have student loans, chances are you wish there was a way to make them disappear. And in a way, there is: The federal government now offers three repayment plans that lower monthly payments and will—eventually—forgive remaining debt. A separate plan forgives loans for people who take certain public-service jobs. Some of these options, however, are so new that nobody knows how well they´ll serve borrowers. Even when it comes to well-established repayment plans, many students don´t truly understand their options. And some analysts say that policy adjustments are needed to ensure that students don´t get too comfortable taking on

The Democratic Party’s obsession with income inequality and “the one percent” is factually misguided, science has found. Over the weekend, leading academic professor Mark R. Rank discussed the findings of a recent scientific study on income inequality in the New York Times. It turns out that, according to scientific data, the Left’s horror stories about a rigid class structure in the United States fueled by nefarious, wealth-hoarding one-percenters is false. “The picture drawn of the 1 percent has been that of a static population, just as the 99 percent is often portrayed as unchanging,” Rank writes. “There is a line drawn between

Raced-Based Preferences Forever

You can often tell when advocates of one side in an argument fear they will ultimately lose. They change their branding. A few years ago, warnings about “global warming” were replaced with scare stories about “climate change.” One reason? The Earth had stopped appreciably warming in the late 1990s, making the change a PR necessity. Supporters of affirmative action are now signaling similar weakness. What was called “racial quotas” in the 1970s and has been referred to as “affirmative action” since the 1990s is giving way to a new term: “race-sensitive admission policies.” The language shift is telling — race-based preferences

Would you boycott a family dinner because your grandfather holds some politically incorrect views about welfare recipients? Or, would you uninvite a neighboring family from attending a block party after learning that they attend an evangelical church that upholds a traditional definition of marriage? Most reasonable people would say “no,” adhering to the old adage that it’s rude to talk politics in polite company. Unfortunately, this rule of etiquette that has governed civil society for ages seems to be quickly evaporating in the world of commerce, as highlighted by the now notorious case of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Jeb Bush said Wednesday he´s "thinking about running for president," in his most direct statement yet about a possible 2016 run. The former Florida governor spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York Wednesday morning. He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president." The answer was met with applause and a standing ovation, after

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what

WASHINGTON -- In a dissent to Tuesday’s Supreme Court ruling upholding Michigan’s voter-approved ban on affirmative action programs in its public colleges, Justice Sonia Sotomayor speaks from experience about the complex impact of such programs on her own life. Sotomayor’s 58-page dissent, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has one theme: Race matters. (Snip) She takes a dig at Chief Justice John Roberts who wrote once, “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discrimination on the basis of race.” Sotomayor says: “It is a sentiment out of touch with reality.” Sotomayor says, “Race matters.
