to Diplomats Killed in Benghazi

Original Article

Posted By: NorthernDog, 11/15/2019 3:06:46 PM

Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch compared herself to the diplomats and contractors killed in Benghazi in her opening statement in the second public impeachment inquiry on Friday. “We make a difference everyday,” she said in a defense of herself and diplomats serving around the world. She continued: We are people who repeatedly uproot our lives, who risk and sometimes give our lives for this country. We are the 52 Americans, who, 40 years ago this month, began 444 days of deprivation, torture, and captivity in Tehran. We are the dozens of Americans stationed at our embassies in Cuba

So, if she may have felt intimidated by a tweet she didn't even know about, but was read by Rep. Bull Schiff to her, then she should NEVER have been sent to a hostile environment like Ukraine where corruption was well known, and oligarchs controlled much of what happened in Ukraine.

Yeah, but did you every ride in an airplane into a combat zone, and have to do circles and weaves on your final approach to avoid snipers and anti-aircraft fire?

Yupper. She was dodging bullets in Kosovo. I was disappointed. I expected her to cry more, and to have dirty glasses. And she failed to speak in a little girl voice, and did not have two doors to her house. Smearing? Ambassadors serve at the pleasure of the President. If you are out, you are out. She had nothing to offer except for her self-imposed rectitude. She is so noble. She is so good. She is so loyal. She is so … whatever. Is this the best they've got?

Napolitano, Romney and this woman are all upset because they were ignored or, in her case, replaced by President Trump. She was not fired, she just was asked to leave, as the President has the perfect right to replace any Ambassador if he so chooses. Anyway, we learned today that she now has a pretty plum job as a professor in Georgetown University, teaching one class of fourteen students, and her compensation remains the same. The three of them should get over it and count their blessings.I believe it was said today that she requested the professorship at Georgetown.

There are no words to convey my level of disgust with this statement! The only reason all of the CIA/State Dept operatives survived that attack was because of the bravery of their private contractors. President Obama and Hillary left them there to die in order to once again cover up their misdeeds. This woman is a disgrace! Good Riddance!

Isn't she the delicate, sensitive, little flower who took it upon herself to tell the Ukrainian prosecutor who NOT to investigate? Hands off George Soros and friends. These State Department people are going insane because DJT is upsetting their little world and their own, under the radar, foreign policy. Yovanovitch, that "whistleblower" Ciaramella and Soros are neck deep in the "One World Government" cabal supported by Obama and Hillary and, to some extent former presidents going back to GHW Bush, and his "New World Order." Getting Donald Trump out of office or preventing his reelection is essential to their survival. I really worry about the safety of the President.

This woman didn't witness anything but still Trump should not be tweeting when people are appearing before the House impeachment inquiry. I wonder if this continues to flop if they will just vote to censure President Trump and avoid a trial in the Senate.

She was lucky President Trump allowed her to continue working as a U.S. ambassador. She is an Obama holdover. He could have sent her to the unemployment line years ago. If she didn't like her assignment, she could have resigned. But nooooooo...instead she has to play the victim and manipulate her audience. Why?? Because her real job is to work for the Democrats and keep their unsavory interests in the Ukraine safe and now to work on destroying the Republican President.

I lived overseas and worked at an American embassy as a member of “staff”. In other words, I was not considered to be a diplomat. What she is not telling you is that she lived in a big fancy residence loaded with servants, had a driver and a fancy car to take her everywhere and spent a huge chunk of her time being wined and dined by the Ukrainians and diplomats from other embassies. Most of these career diplomats join up because they want to travel on the taxpayers’ dime. They mostly don’t do squat, much less make a difference.

What a piece of work! Disliked in Ukraine, loyal to the old president, disloyal to the new president, messing about in local law enforcement (never mind the Geneva Convention rules) and getting herself involved in the impeachment of a fine American President. Shame, shame on her. Today she was just an older, more wrinkled, red-haired version of Christine Blowsey-Ford. And the same enablers put her there and coached her. More shame. She had the gall to compare herself to Ambassador Chris Stevens? I wish she had been at Benghazi. He would still be alive.

Marie, something you should seriously consider... Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton FAILED TO PROTECT Christopher Stevens and the others that were murdered at Benghazi. These people won't protect you either. If you get caught lying during your testimony, you are ON YOUR OWN if the Trump administration decides to prosecute. Have you noticed that the whistleblower isn't testifying? He is covering his rear end. That is something you aren't doing.

Amen, poster #27! I was a trailing spouse with dip-status at two embassies. You are 100 percent correct! They and the DCM are the only ones in the Embassy who get to have the Marines come to their aid when there's trouble. Ambassadors live like kings and queens, and it's a very coveted gig with a boatload of benefits.

No matter what the Democrats are saying this lady was not fired, she was recalled to DC and was reassigned another job at the State Department. She is a career State Department employee and she did not own the Ambassadorship to Ukraine. If there was a mistake made at the beginning of the Trump Administration it was Trump not asking for all US Ambassadors to tender their resignations. No doubt in this case the lady’s feelings were hurt when she was recalled as she believed that she was carrying out “established” State Department policies towards Ukraine. A President is entitled, no matter what the Democrats are insinuating, to have Ambassadors who he has confidence in to professionally carry out his foreign policy initiatives. In this case he lost confidence in this lady to do that and told the Secretary of State to recall and replace her. Also foreign governments are under no law or obligation to accept or keep a foreign ambassador who they do not like for their own reasons. In this case both the US President and the President of Ukraine wanted this lady to be recalled, so that they could start fresh with a new ambassador. The decision to recall this lady and replace her was totally within the US President’s constitutional prerogative for which the President is not required to give any reasons for him taking that action. The Congressional Democrats who are holding their impeachment inquisition have nothing to say about that. Just as the selection and confirmation of ambassadors is the business of the President and the US Senate Clearly Trump has discombobulated a lot of career bureaucrats around DC who are still carrying out “established” bureaucratic policies, many of which were created during the Obama era. The problem is that Trump was elected by the American people to put American interests first over the interests of foreign countries and entities many of which are known to be corrupt. Remember Trump makes reference to that frequently when he says that he was elected President of the USA and was not elected to be President of the World to maintain “established” bureaucratic and diplomatic policies that have the USA being the policeman to the world, and financially sending huge amounts of money and supporting faraway foreign countries, as American workers are left behind, and American cities ruined. That is a big problem for much of the “established”DC political UniParty and both the civilian and military “Deep States” DC bureaucracies that have completely different agendas then the American people who elected Trump.

I asked the question as to why Schiffty was checking his twitter during the testimony of this "very Important" witness. The answer my husband came up with was probably the best. "He was bored, like the rest of us." I think that about sums up this narcissists appearance. Useless and boring. "Were you there? No. Did you hear the call? No. Do you have anything of relevance to offer to the committee? No. Thank you, goodbye."

The former starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers is seeking a return to the NFL three years after his protests against racial injustice roiled the sport. He has contended that teams would not sign him because they wanted to distance themselves from the protests, which U.S. President Donald Trump blasted as unpatriotic and disrespectful.

WASHINGTON—Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has unveiled sweeping tax proposals that would push federal tax rates on some billionaires and multimillionaires above 100%. That prospect raises questions for taxpayers and the broader economy that experts are starting to ponder: Under which circumstances would taxpayers have to pay those rates? How might that change their behavior? And would investment and economic growth suffer? Potential tax rates over 100% could result from the combination of tax increases the Massachusetts senator proposes for the very top tier of investors. She wants to return the top income-tax rate to 39.6% from 37%, impose

In the wake of Cleveland’s Myles Garrett ripping the helmet off of Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph and hitting him in the head with it, the 23-year-old defensive end was hit with a historic suspension by the NFL and may face additional discipline off the field. That’s assault, Myles Garrett should not play another game this season. pic.twitter.com/rH4ko6lAdV — Maximiliano Bretos (@MaxBretosSports) November 15, 2019 With 10 games already in the books for the 4-6 Browns, Garrett, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 draft, has six games left to play this season.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, amid the largely laughable testimony of the diplomats — can you say heavy on the hearsay, guys? — came out with her own largely laughable conclusion of all that hearsay testimony and said: President Donald Trump is guilty of bribery. She even found him guilty of confessing to bribery. Who knew Pelosi, at her advanced age, could perform so many contortions? This has to be the greatest acrobatic spin in political history. “The bribe,” she said, in a widely reported news conference on the heels of the first public impeachment hearing, “is to grant or withhold military assistance in return for a public statement

During a visit to Britain this week, Hillary Clinton explained why she and daughter Chelsea chose not to include Margaret Thatcher in their new book featuring “gutsy women” – and why the teenage Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg did make the cut. In Clinton’s view Britain’s first prime minister did not do enough to knock down “barriers for others.” The former Democratic presidential nominee did give a nod to Thatcher’s willingness to change the way she dressed, spoke and wore her hair, alluding to one of the most dramatic makeovers in 20th century politics.

Until a month or so ago, virtually no one outside of the seven circles of hell that is the State Department had heard of Marie Yovanovitch. Even the intrepid John Solomon had not heard of her until March of this year. He had interviewed Ukrainian Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko who told him that Yovanovitch gave him a "do not prosecute" list the first time he met with her. He was angered by her list which he justifiably saw it as interference in Ukraine's government. He felt she was meddling in their anti-corruption investigations by telling him who should not be investigated.

During a portion of an interview with CBS released on Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stated that President Trump’s tweet about former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was designed to “undermine” Yovanovitch and that President Trump’s “insecurity” means that “he has to diminish everyone else.”Pelosi said Trump was tweeting about Yovanovitch because “he knows — he made a mistake, and he knows her strength, and he was trying to undermine it. Of course, presidents appoint ambassadors, but people don’t insult people, especially when they’re giving testimony before the Congress of the United States.”Host Margaret Brennan asked Pelosi about the debate over whether Trump

TAMPA — From the moment the NFL announced its hasty plan for a Colin Kaepernick workout this weekend, the questions have been flying. After all this time, why the sudden rush? Did some team request this? How many general managers will show up? Is this simply a ploy for atonement by the NFL? Yet, around here, a more important question needs to be asked: Can Kaepernick help the Buccaneers? It’s an interesting and legitimate question with, at this point, no clear answer. Kaepernick has not been in an NFL uniform in nearly three years so it’s worth wondering if his skills have atrophied.

(Emphasis added.) There are also some 30 recurring LGBTQ characters, making a total of 120. That’s up from last year’s 113 regular and recurring LGBTQ roles.
