There are any number of excuses liberal Democrats are using to circle around potential Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in order to try and protect her on the Benghazi issue, but this one – via the Washington Times – takes the cake: Eleanor Clift, noted liberal columnist and pundit from the Daily Beast, insisted during a […]

 

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz sinks to new lows w/ #Benghazi tweet

Posted by: ST on May 9, 2014 at 9:21 am » 4 Comments

Well, the Democrats are laying down the gauntlet on the issue of the Trey Gowdy-led Benghazi select committee and rather than agree to participate in the investigation, they’ve chosen to suggest Republicans are doing it for political gain. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz led the way last night with this disgusting tweet: The GOP voted for […]

**Posted by Phineas To paraphrase Whoopie Goldberg, I’m pretty sure these weren’t “leaked-leaked,” so much as deliberately slipped to the Japanese, knowing they’d go public. It’s a not-so-subtle to warning to Dear Leader III: “If things fall apart, don’t count on us to bail you out:” China has drawn up detailed contingency plans for the […]

This is super awesome to hear: South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor known for his aggressive style of questioning at congressional hearings, has been tapped to lead a select committee tasked with investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks.

**Posted by Phineas And not a demonstration. I don’t know how I missed this over the weekend (1), but the administration’s favorite investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson, posted this little bombshell to her site back on the 1st (via Hot Air): Internal Emails: State Dept. Immediately Attributed Benghazi Attacks to Terrorist Group A newly-released government email […]

The maturity level & “professionalism” of the Obama admin in one quote

Posted by: ST on May 2, 2014 at 12:09 pm » 3 Comments

I think this about sums up how “adult’ the “adults in charge” are at the White House: Former White House spokesman Tommy Vietor, in a tense interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier, downplayed the revived controversy over the Benghazi talking points, saying he does not remember his own role in the editing process because: “Dude, […]

**Posted by Phineas So, more than 19 months after four Americans –including our ambassador– died at the hands of al Qaeda allies in an attack on our consulate in Benghazi, part of the truth finally comes out: the White House political operation used the story of  a video to protect President Obama reelection, sacrificing the truth, our […]

 

I weep: our foreign policy has been reduced to hashtags

Posted by: Phineas on April 25, 2014 at 3:15 pm » 10 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Well, I weep and I mock. For those not familiar with Twitter, “hashtags” are labels preceded by a number sign, as in “#politics.” They were developed to make it easier for people to search for related messages on the system, though people also use them as asides to provide commentary, humor, or snark.
