Truthless Cobra Hillary Didn’t Care about Chris Stevens

No, Hillary Didn’t Care About Chris Stevens

by Ben Shapiro  at Townhall:

“Last week, the media hailed Hillary Clinton’s supposed political triumph at a hearing of the House Select Committee on Benghazi concerning the terrorist attack of Sept. 11, 2012 that ended in the murder of four Americans, including American ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens. Clinton appeared calm and collected, even as she lied repeatedly: She said that she believed a YouTube video still bore some responsibility for the terrorist attack, despite the fact that she told the Egyptian prime minister the day after the attack that the video had nothing to do with the attack; she insisted that political hack Sidney Blumenthal didn’t act as an advisor, even though he routinely emailed with her about policy; she stated that she’d been transparent about her emails, although that nonsense has been rejected by the State Department.

Most of all, Clinton suggested that Stevens had been responsible for his own murder. She said that he “felt comfortable” on the ground, and that he was merely joking when he emailed about whether the Benghazi compound would be closed. “Chris Stevens had … a really good sense of humor,” Clinton laughed. “And I just see him smiling as he’s typing this.” Stevens’ State Department team in Libya sent requests for additional security 600 times. They were rejected.

After Clinton finished lying, she went home and hung out with her entire team. She partied. “I had my whole team come over to my house and we sat around eating Indian food and drinking wine and beer,” Clinton told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. “That’s what we did. It was great. … They did a terrific job, you know, kind of being there behind me and getting me ready, and then, you know, just talk about what we’re going to do next.”

 As an apparent afterthought, she added to Maddow, “The point is, what are we going to do both honor and the people that we lost, and try to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

Fangs of Typical Leftist Media Show Some Decay Since Republican Presidential Candidate Revolt

THE MEDIA’S POTEMKIN VILLAGE BEGINS TO BE SEEN THROUGH LESS FOGGY EYES

…….except don’t forget the Democrat left base, its black racists, feminists, atheists, and Marxist don’t give a hoot about TRUTH; they rely on feelings, not reason.  Reason is old white man stuff not fit for today’s university left ‘beatitudes’.

Saudi Islam Doing its Islam Thing…. to Crucify Teenage Boy

Police Embrace “In God We Trust”

When police embrace ‘In God We Trust’

Ken Paulson  ….USA Today:

“It took 151 years, but “In God We Trust” has gone viral. The phrase, first placed on a U.S. coin in 1864, has become the message of choice for a growing number of law-enforcement agencies across the country.

“There are all these news stories about Ferguson and Baltimore, and I have personally been in a firefight and when you come out of one of those, you know you’re trusting in God,” Nathan Stevens, police chief of Cave City, Ark., told KAIT television. Fueled by controversies over aggressive policing and seemingly random attacks on officers, dozens of departments have placed “In God We Trust” on patrol cars.

Despite our constitutional guarantee that government cannot promote a specific religion, the decals will remain. The reason: A 1970 federal court decision that came to the surprising conclusion that “In God We Trust” is not a religious expression.

“It is quite obvious that the national motto and the slogan on coinage and currency ‘In God We Trust’ has nothing whatsoever to do with the establishment of religion. Its use is of a patriotic or ceremonial character,” the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals wrote in Aronow v. United States.

In truth, the addition of the phrase to currency and its elevation to national motto status had everything to do with religion.

“The motto ‘In God We Trust’ was placed on United States coins largely because of the increased religious sentiment existing during the Civil War,” according to the  U.S. Department of the Treasury.” …..Please continue:

Koskinen, a Double A Product of ObamaSleaze, Should Be in Jail

Yes, the IRS chief has earned impeachment

from the New York Post:

“He still won’t wipe that smirk off his face, but the House of Representatives is quite right to get the ball rolling on impeaching IRS chief John Koskinen.

Brought into the agency to clean house after the IRS’s unlawful targeting of conservative groups, Koskinen instead presided over endless stonewalling of congressional probes — including the destruction of evidence that had been subpoenaed.

If you responded to an IRS audit the way Koskinen’s IRS has behaved, you’d be looking at huge penalties and maybe prison time.

He waited months to tell the IRS that an “accident” had destroyed the e-mail records of Lois Lerner, the woman at the scandal’s heart. Indeed, he made no real effort to secure those e-mails, despite a subpoena — allowing key backups to be destroyed.

Then he nonchalantly testified that Lerner’s e-mails were all gone forever — and then showed not a hint of shame after an inspector general came up with thousands of them.”……there’s more, but you may want to take a shower before you continue reading more  about Lerner and Koskinen:

United Nations to Invade America’s Economy

from the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow…..Craig Rucker, Director

“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task
of intentionally…[changing] the economic development model that
has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”

So said Christiana Figueres, head of the UN’s global warming body, about a terrible new agreement being readied for a world summit in Paris just a few weeks from today.

The goal of the Paris summit in early December is to push through a new UN binding climate pact that will give international bureaucrats unprecedented control over America’s energy and economy.

That’s why I need you to take a moment right now and sign CFACT’s onlne petition against this radical UN climate agenda.

As you may recall, the previous Kyoto treaty failed to produce a binding agreement for our nation. Now many at the UN believe Paris is their best chance yet to achieve what they call a “complete transformation of the economic structure of the world.”

President Obama, not surprisingly, is already on board. As recently as August, he said:

    “This year, in Paris, has to be the year that the world finally reaches
an agreement to protect the one planet that we’ve got while we still can.”

So after years of trying and failing, President Obama, the UN and their allies in the radical Green movement now believe they can finally lock the U.S. and the world into a binding international climate agreement … and do it within just a few weeks!

This cannot stand. We need to speak up now and we need to speak up loud, while there is still time.

Please add your name to our CFACT petition and tell our government leaders and major media the American people strongly oppose this dangerous Paris climate deal.

The UN’s climate deal is a treacherous one-way street. It would require the U.S. and other developed nations to drastically slash emissions and redistribute hundreds of billions of dollars. But it gives China, India and most of the world a pass until some far off time in the distant future, even if their emissions are greater than ours!

It is also based on junk science.

Indeed, there is nothing on the planet less “settled” than climate science.

As our petition explains, there has been no meaningful global warming since the turn of the millennium and at most a brief and minor warming above scientific baselines during the century past. The UN’s climate models have failed miserably.

This calls into serious question their entire apocalyptic theory.

Yet the public is daily being subjected to tales of catastrophic global warming that has not occurred.

You can be confident that the media won’t tell them the truth either. They will rubber stamp countless press releases from the UN and global warming pressure groups between now and December and regurgitate them as “news.”

Help us fight back. Sign the petition and help us gather the signatures we need to serve notice that we’re on to their game.

President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry badly want this UN climate deal to succeed. Their foreign policy has been a disaster and they need something to claim as a legacy.

We can learn a lot from the Iran deal. Obama and Kerry sold our interests out and gave the Mullahs in Tehran everything they wanted. They created a less safe world so that they could falsely claim a victory.

Now with every rent-seeker, leftist NGO and international bureaucrat eager to cash in on this UN climate deal, Obama and Kerry are poised do it to us again!

Their UN climate agreement must be stopped.

It is horrendous. It is built on a foundation of junk science.

And its provisions will cost trillions of dollars, inflict heavy costs on poor and middle class families, cripple American businesses, and bring few or no health or ecological benefits.

More on Planned Parenthood Horror…..ADORABLE ABORTED BABY HEARTS

PLANNED PARENTHOOD’S ADORABLE BABY HEARTS

by Laurie Higgins  at Barbwire      …article sent by Mark Waldeland:

“The Center for Medical Progress just released another undercover video exposé of a Planned Parenthood affiliate, this one in Austin, Texas. Dr. Amna Dermish, the sole abortionist at this Planned Parenthood abattoir, performs over 3,000 abortions per year on babies up to 21.6 gestational weeks. This video reveals both the barbarous nature of Dermish’s work and the vitiated state of her conscience…….”.read on:

Oh Jew and Gentile……What Do We Learn in School Today?

The following piece of English came across my eye and brain in ninth grade English class, public school, St. Paul, Minnesota, sixty seven years ago.   My parents came, one from farm background and the other from immigrant.

Although not Churched, I am intellectually and emotionally profoundly American JudeoChristian.   The purpose of human life is clear and simple.   One must learn to win the battle of right versus wrong, knowledge over ignorance……..but one must know what ‘right’ means and demands.

Learning knowledge becomes very important.

This is a human  male, not female, genetically driven concept.   Do read the following masterpiece of word and thought.

For those of you under age 75, do you have any idea where these words below came from?

Who spoke them?

“I am a Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer as a Christian is? If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge? If we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that. If a Jew wrong a Christian, what is his humility? Revenge. If a Christian wrong a Jew, what should his sufferance be by Christian example? Why, revenge. The villainy you teach me I will execute, and it shall go hard but I will better the instruction.”

Fading Faded Jeb Bush Fades Further after Last Night

Tonight’s Republican candidate forum will primarily be remembered for two things, I suspect: (1) CNBC’s truly awful moderation, and (2) the beginning of the end of Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign.

CNBC,  JEB BUSH LOSE GOP DEBATE   by Guy Benson:

CNBC: Between the parade of gotcha questions, sloppy moderating, and factual errors, this was an evening to forget for the host network. Almost every single candidate on stage directly called out the slanted nature of the coverage in real time, punctuated by memorable slap-downs from Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Co-host John Harwood, whose inclusion on the panel irked conservatives from the moment it was announced, was especially tendentious and argumentative — repeatedly interrupting candidates and semi-reprising a blown fact-check about Rubio’s tax plan. Harwood had admitted his previous mistake on Twitter, but didn’t clarify this point on the air when Rubio pushed back. The entire enterprise, from the production values, to the overall focus, to the flow of inquiries, was embarrassing. Incidentally, why was there no conservative media partner for this broadcast? Was that not a requirement this cycle?  (Update: An RNC source tells me CNBC’s Rick Santelli constituted the “conservative element” of the forum).

Jeb Bush: The former Florida Governor is a decent and honorable man with some excellent ideas, and a strong record as his state’s chief executive. He has underwhelmed in this campaign, fading in the polls to such an extent that tonight felt like it might represent a final opportunity to spark a comeback. He fizzled. When Bush tried to take a hard shot at Marco Rubio’s missed Senate votes early in the proceedings, Rubio was prepared with a strong counter-punch. It landed. The crowd roared. And it was lights out for Jeb:

Via ‘Statistics’, Who Won the Debate Last Night?

Overnight poll on who won the debate: Trump 27, Rubio 21, Cruz 17

 by Allahpundit   at  HotAir:

“The Republican chattering class lurrrrves Marco Rubio, and Rubio’s always excellent onstage (never more so than last night), so there was a moment around halfway through the debate last night when my Twitter feed was filled with people proclaiming “RUBIO IS THE NOMINEE.” To which I replied, only half-jokingly, that the way these debates have gone so far, Rubio will gain a point and Trump and/or Carson will bounce out to an even bigger lead for no particular reason whatsoever.

How’s that half-joke working out today?

As for the winners and losers in Wednesday night’s debate, over 1,500 registered Republicans were asked, “Who do you think won the debate?” Republicans across the United States pick Donald Trump as the winner with 26.7 percent of the vote followed by Senator Marco Rubio, taking second place, at 21.1 percent. Senator Ted Cruz finishes in third place with 17.3 percent of the vote.

When asked, “Who to you think lost the debate?” polled voters put former Governor Jeb Bush on top with 26.2 percent of the vote, closely followed by Senator Rand Paul at 24.2%.   John Kasich received 15.0 percent of the responses.”……do, please, read on:
