Hillary’s Performance Spotlights Split America


Now, Hillary gets in the act. Though she can’t (yet) make presidential decisions she can assert herself as she did on the Congressional stand Wednesday, trying to defend herself and the administration from the potential Benghazi ‘coverup’ .


How someone who has taken ‘full responsibility’ for the Benghazi disaster,can emphatically state ‘ it doesn’t matter’ what happened but that we just need to prevent it from happening again, we have a major problem. This, from the  leading candidate to be the Democratic nominee for President in 2016? And, of course that’s not all.


She went on to admit she doesn’t like to do Sunday morning talk shows, thus we had Susan Rice erring big time, which contributed mightily to Hillary and the administration’s subsequent problems. And, further, we saw Hillary continuously referring to ‘the ARB’, the investigative report on Benghazi done by her own state staff, whenever there was something she didn’t want to talk about. ‘It’s too lengthy to go into now, but you can find it in the ARB.’ Or, she would state that some things were STILL not resolved and she couldn’t give an answer, as she’s been for the past four months.


COUNTRY’S REACTION: HOW DO HILLARY, OBAMA and the Administration Get Away with all this Stuff?


After seeing Hillary on the stand, giving what we would consider a very poor performance, -never really telling us anything, e.g. who did what, who made the decisions or didn’t  make the decisions – and then the response from the media (or lack therof) we’re beginning to finally understand why we have such a split country. 



For the general media Hillary got a pass and was even praised for how she defended herself and the administration. Truly incrediable! What it comes down to now is that virtually anything Clinton says will be defended by today’s media, with the exception of Fox. We’re talking not about talk show hosts so much as the mainstream news media.



There was once something called objectivity in the news but today one must consider the news source and try to find a balance, if possible. For example , any news feed from the NEW YORK TIMES is likely to defend Obama, Hillary, et al. Same for most of the others. You might get an unbiased real news report from the Wall Street Journal if you’re lucky but that’s about it for the mainstream media. 



How anyone can defend Clinton’s statement, ‘It doesnt (at this time) matter’ anymore, in reference to Benghazi, is akin to closing down the courts and letting all potential criminals off. Sure, there were the actual murderers who killed Ambassador Stevens and three others but the murders likely would not have happened had Hillary read the ‘cables’ from Benghazi, requesting more security, as Senator Rand Paul noted, or had she showed up, herself at the Sunday morning shows rather than passing the buck to an inexperienced Susan Rice. In a sense, Clinton and/or members of the Administration were the REAL culprits for enabling the murders to happen. 



(Afterall, this was the first time an US ambassador was killed in over 30 years
which would indicated something like this just shouldn’t happen.) Yet, inexplicably,
one side of America seemingly goes along with everything and anything the administration
does, even something so incredibly and obviously WRONG! To say something doesn’t matter
why even have court hearings – or rules to live by, for that matter. President Obama
has basically stonewalled the entire proceedings himself. Had Obama taken the stand
we would likely have seem a similar performance of passing the buck.

How someone as intelligent as Clinton – and obama- can get away with this stuff is beyond us.
Worse though, is the half of the American populous that sits by accepting this stuff. Even
the Republican leaders could have done a better job of grilling Clinton. With the exception
of Paul and a few others, it was largely a love fest for Hillary, a probable bump in the
road on the way to a 2016 nomination for President, assuming she still wants this.
Have we become a brain dead nation, so dumbed down by Obama’s ‘giveaway’ culture that
doesn’t encourage work or even much thought. Just live and enjoy while the government
and working stiffs pay for the 50% who don’t .





So we have President obama now coming up with not one ,not two but 23 ‘gun’ bills he wants to push through on his own. And. now he’s already made the order to allow women in the front lines of our military. Now, tha he’s been elected and before he goes into true ‘lame duck’ status it’s Seemingly every day something  else he’s trying to push through. The idea, of course, is just to ‘goo for it all’ and hope at least some of the directives will stick. And, some probably will.

It’s Obama at his best, which may not necessarily be best for the country.


TRANSPARENCY – word of year

Word of the year, at least in politics, has to be ‘transparency.’  I hear it all the time, from obama to anyone in government and those covering them.

I guess it’s supposed to be a positive thing, but  I think of it as  a negative , ie  ‘How transparent these people are.’  As if , you can see right through them…




Caching up on our blogs as we were down a few days due to technical difficulties, sorry…


After saying nothing about the rather serious hostage taking by Islamic militants our head foreign leader, Hillary Clinton acknowledged the hostage taking by saying simply words ‘We hope for as few casualties as possible,’ or close to that. Duh! Do we think that she would be hoping for more loss of life? Perhaps Hilary would do better to say nothing than to come out with inane words must tofill the void… and, of course , there was nothing from President Obama, other than his twitters to eight-year-plds…In fact, while Clinton and Obama had reallynoting to say, it was Reuters who was at least giving us some details including that
two American hostages were being held in a gas plant in Algeria and that some otherhostages were killed in a raid.


Perhaps Obama should spend some time on the other peripherals that contribute to the crime program.   Violence has become part of the culture. It’s in the movies, the music, our daily lives – what with murder rates climbing in major cities like Chicago.  Some like producer Quentin Tarrantino  may say that violence in the ‘arts’ has no affect on violence in society but statistics show otherwise.

Obama’s decry of guns has simply sent thousands to the gun stores to clean them out of  anything and everything.  And besides, those are mostly the honest people. It’s the crimnal element that will get it’s guns anywhere they can – and do.  Nothing against tougher gun laws here, but it’s only a fraction of the problem.

We must try to remove violence from the culture, just like England and some other countries have done. The crime and murder rate in England is proportionately  much lower than it is in the U.S.  There is much more civlity in that country, where even the ‘Bobby’s’  (please) don’t need to carry guns, as a rule, we are told.



OBAMA railed against President Bush raising the debt ceiling in 2006, callingBush a ‘tyrant trying to gin up’ the debt celing. It would appear Obama is doingexacly what he spoke against six years ago, having now nearly doubled our debt
from when Bush left office going from $4million to $7 million.

He said he would compromise with Republicans on the debt ceiling and took only six questions from press people who seemed to be predeterminedfrom a list he would scan.

It was only the second press conference in a year. Some in the crowd
said they missed the days of Clinton and Bush I where press conferences
were light and open, where any questions were fair game and topics were open.
The public… Does anyone really care anymore? During the press conference apparently viewers of TV’s the Price is Right were outraged that their showwas preempted for Obama’s speech. Haven’t people noticed that their taxes havegone up…even those 40-50% who weren’t paying taxes will now have to paythe payroll tax (1-2% of their income) if they’re working?

Other notes…

In 2006 Obama complained that Bush II would pull out a credit cardto raise taxes on a whim, who was ‘unpatriotic for raising the debt to 4 trillion
dollars. Has anybody reminded Obama lately that he has raised the deficit to 7 trillion from 4 trillion?

We also learn that Obama has tried 19 times to write new gun law , and others, on his own. However, there
is something called a constitution which prohibits the president from doing this on his own.But, if people don’t care and watch this , who knows what can slip by.


For those who say the Republicans are being too hard on the Democrats, let’s lookback at the Clinton administration. When things weren’t going well initially,Clinton, Gingrich and co. tightened up spending, to only 20% of GDP or about 1.5 trillion dollars
as compared to Obama at about 35% or 3 Trillion dollars.
Fair Tax: or what about taxing people WHEN they spend, not before they spend whenyou don’t even know what they’re spending on or if they’re spending… Countries that have used it are doing well. No wonder the US is no longer in theTop 10 countries with lowest taxes. Nor are the Euroopean countires running in similar socialist manners.

Gun violence:

Obama asks for ‘voluntary efforts’ for decreasing violence in movies, etc.
Good luck to all these hypocritic movie stars coming out against guns but yet
using them frequently in their violent mogies.
