This is probably the point where the Hillary 2016 effort…
…will be judged by future researchers to have started to slide off of the beam: [Hillary] Clinton — how much she knew, when she knew it, and whether she willingly participated in a cover up — was a central theme of the [Benghazi] hearing. And Wednesday, the story did move a large step closer to Clinton. Star witness Gregory Hicks, who was the Deputy Chief | Read More »
Benghazi hearings in the Mirror Universe
It’s amazing to watch the media bury yesterday’s explosive testimony on Benghazi. Just imagine for a moment that today is the day after a veteran career diplomat – the top man on the ground in Libya after the murder of the ambassador – testified that a Republican administration told him not to cooperate with Democrat congressional investigators, shook him up with a menacing phone call from the top political | Read More »
Divorcing sex from marriage
“Aha!” cried liberals across the land, when the election returns from South Carolina came in, and the zombie political corpse of Mark Sanford had somehow managed to score a landslide victory over the vivacious Elizabeth Colbert Busch. ”Now we’ve got you right where we want you, Republicans! Your hypocrisy on family values will be your undoing!” The idea is to tear off Representative-Elect Sanford’s zombie arm – | Read More »

VIDEO: A Quick Reminder on Benghazi
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
Hillary Clinton Prepares to See Underside of Obama Bus
I do hear that President Obama will let Hillary Clinton tour a tire factory this week so she can at least match a dress to the tire tread, but one way or the other, Hillary Clinton is now going under the Obama bus. Joe Biden began the effort to throw Hillary under the bus in the debate Thursday night. He said the White House never | Read More »
Why Barack Obama will not fire Hillary Clinton.
Following the President’s lead blindly so far caused the Democrats to get eviscerated in 2009 and 2010: forget Congress, their loss of state legislatures across the country – just in time for redistricting! – quietly blighted many a promising career. Surely the Democrats recognize that there must be a limit to how much damage an endangered, embattled, and execrable President may be allowed to do to his own party organization.

Is The Obama Administration Aiding & Abetting In The Murder Of Mexico?
Nearly a year ago, it was interesting to be attacked as Neo-Cons after stating what seemed to be obvious then and, unfortunately, is becoming more obvious by the day regarding the chaos in Mexico. Here was the statement and the resultant question: Like it or Not: Mexico is America’s Next Afghanistan With the exception of, perhaps, Texas governor Rick Perry, no public official wants to publicly | Read More »
Obama to reduce Iraq strength to 3,000, lose election…

Because They Won’t Attack Hillary Clinton, They Attack Josh Trevino
The left is in a tizzy because some “well meaning” people are on a flotilla to Gaza and Josh Trevino dares to say what so many of the rest of us are thinking — if Israel takes out the flotilla in self defense, so be it. Frankly, from my vantage point, I can’t see any other rational position — particularly for those who support Israel, | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Questions Congress’s Patriotism Over Libya
As the two houses of Congress debate resolutions that run the gamut from authorizing and limiting President Obama’s Libya action to defunding the Libya war altogether, and as the NATO begins to complement its ineffectiveness with internal discord, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is questioning her former legislative colleagues’ patriotism. “Who’s side are you on?” she demanded today, lashing out at Congress while on an | Read More »

Leading From Behind
Many of us have been struggling to make sense of Barack Obama’s erratic foreign policy. He says he doesn’t want to fight “dumb wars” and then goes and acts stupid in Libya. He constantly seems to be working to undermine the United States’ role in the world and bows to every foreign crowned head except Queen Elizabeth II, who he gives an iPod. He returns | Read More »
