Sometimes a citizen lawmaker dares to exercise such candor that the inside-the-Beltway crowd recoils in horror at the blatant honesty. Such was the case with Wisconsin’s own Senator Ron Johnson (R) this past week. Johnson captured attention with his tough questioning of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to finally answer questions about the Benghazi disaster of last | Read More »
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Michael Auslin to discuss how the Pentagon will deal with the sequester, women joining frontline combat roles, and his reaction to the Benghazi hearings on Capitol Hill.
No intel could have proven that Saddam had no WMD and no words from the Secretary of State’s lips can render her incompetent performance competent Matt Ryan is a generally competent NFL quarterback who has led my Atlanta Falcons to their best consecutive seasons’ run since he took over for Michael Vick five years ago. But I saw his two turnovers in the second half | Read More »
As Hillary Clinton takes to Capitol Hill to answer questions related to the attacks in Benghazi on September 11th of last year, it might be a good time to have a reminder of what the State Department and the administration’s initial response was to the act of terrorism. Consider this an open thread. Follow @BenHowe
Americans just re-elected a President that shares the views of his nominee for Secretary of Defense To hear most Senate Republicans and not a few Democrats advise of a reluctance to consent to the appointment of former Senator Chuck Hagel to head the Pentagon, one would imagine that President Barack Obama is the best friend Israel ever had; was about to go to war with | Read More »
Sometimes professional sports provide us the perfect metaphor for the utterly Darwinist and unfair world into which we all are hurled at birth. Those who do well, work together. They go all-in like brothers-at-arms and never accept less than the best. We can watch what transpires for the rest below.
The end result of such tomfoolery is loss of one’s status and livelihood. Results matter, money talks, bull-bleep runs the marathon. You must deliver if you want the pay-wad. If you loaf, you learn the hard way what St. Paul meant in 2 Thessalonians (3:10). That is what is right. That is what is good in life. On the other end of the spectrum we get the US State Department.
Secretary of State won’t face tough questioning from Senator McCain et al this week after all… America is safe from the threat of Susan Rice taking 3am phone calls requesting increased embassy security next year. Now, if only we were assured protection from Senator John McCain’s honorable senate pals. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who skipped an overseas trip this past week because of | Read More »
The Benghazi attack that killed four Americans on September 11, 2012, will not be swept under the rug as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton prepares to testify before the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee on December 20, 2012. During a Senate meeting held on November 26, 2012, UN Ambassador Susan Rice admitted to delivering inaccurate and misleading information to the public, on behalf | Read More »
Today, December 7, 1941, we remember the waking of a sleeping giant by megalomaniacs ruling the former Empire of Japan. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared the sneak attack at Pearl Harbor that killed more Americans on their own soil than at any time since the War Between the States, until September 11, 2001. The pain of the infamous deaths of that day and the | Read More »
It seems the ongoing revelations of inconvenient truths about the Benghazi attack are going to drag the mainstream media into addressing the problem that Mitt Romney so famously brought up in the October 13th presidential debate; the ‘spontaneous demonstration’ designation being irreconcilable with evidence of it as a terrorist act. The mainstream media came to President Obama’s rescue when he claimed he’d called it an | Read More »
Thomas Ricks, author of The Generals, recently appeared on Fox News to discuss the Benghazi terror attack and ostensibly to shed light on his book that has been slipping in sales. Jon Scott, the host, began by asking Ricks’ opinion on the controversial pick by President Obama of Susan Rice to serve as the new Secretary of State. Ricks, however, had his own agenda and | Read More »
Ambassador Susan Rice lied five times on Sunday to cover Secretary Clinton’s earlier Benghazi lies and incompetence An electoral majority of We the People re-elected a Commander-in-Chief that made the murders our Libyan Ambassador and three other Americans in Benghazi possible. Soon after his 2009 Inauguration and rushed passage of a “stimulus bill” he promised would keep unemployment under 8%, President Barack Obama went on | Read More »
The ongoing problem with the Obama Administration is its choice of foot soldiers and Kool-Aid drinking ideologues for key positions, rather than its selection of people who question, have differing views and can raise the level of debate when it comes to policy issues and events affecting the lives of Americans.
