LOOK! Up in the sky it’s ULTRATARD! Seizing your sodas, regulating your salt, hiding your cigarettes … it’s Ultratard! Nanny to the masses incapable of thinking for themselves… yes Ultratard reeling in the shadow of Mayor Rudy and feeling second rate to the street cleaning mob busting mayor, Ultratard tries desperately to find something to be proud of while the appeals court shoot him down… WHAT’S THAT I HEAR? Why it’s sweet Polly Crackhead passed out cold from a large sugary drink … Ultratard away!!!!

OK I take it you read Part 1 … if not, go do that I’ll wait.
I covered a few of the Libertarian basics as I see it, your views may vary.
The first thing we covered was PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY … so to refresh … you are responsible for your person.
Now assuming you read part 1 I’m not going over that again … we left off with the wage/price spiral with a real basic quick lesson on how that works. See I believe society will take care of those that cannot take care of themselves on a local level, it worked long before welfare and handouts it can work again if implemented. And equally society will give those that need a swift kick in the ass a swift kick in the ass as that too worked before. See hunger is a hell of a motivator. The world has is precious few people that are self-starters and the majority of people are follower that need someone to tell them to get up off there ass and do something. But the libtards are enabling people to never get up off there ass and we are currently spending about $60,000 a year per person on welfare … food, housing, medical, money, utility supplements et al and that is unsustainable. We can sustain it now and it’s only going to get worse when these slackers and taker are informed that the money has run out … which is why the Democrats are purposing yet another Budget with another trillion in tax increases, but I digress – that’s another post. By the way the Democrat Budget came out today and it increases spending 62% over the next decade … UNSUSTAINABLE!
So cut the cord and if people want to live on the government tit .. then put them to work picking up trash along the road, mowing parks and other public property, painting public property, fixing up government housing etc … see you accomplish two real big things. They do the work and we don’t have to pay government workers to do it and they learn a marketable skill and we don’t have to pay to have them trained – it’s win-win. No more government “retraining programs” and no more paying people to work on the houses of people setting on their ass – I think it’s a great idea and it’s mine!
Speaking of the budget and going off that one very small example of how to cut spending … I’d cut the size of government by a minimum of 50% … YES 50% through attrition - see most of government is not needed. I’d get rid of about 90% of the IRS and go to a flat consumption tax. Granted there are still going to be some elements of taxation on some things from some areas and we’ll need a few agents for that of which would mostly large corporations dealing in international taxation. As far as Joe and Jane Citizen goes they’d be looking at a flat 15-18% consumption tax less food and medical with a much smaller tax on big ticket items like homes and automobiles. So before I get off on a rant on how to fix the current system that is the nutshell of my Libertarian System. you keep 100% of your paycheck but you pay about 17% on everything taxable you buy … no refunds and no tax bills at the end of the year. Everyone has skin in the game and the underground cash economy is taxed too.
You’d see debt reductions and money in the coffers starting right away.
Now on medical … geez that so-called best healthcare system in the world is the most screwed up healthcare system in the world … but the problem is with the consumer not taking ownership in their personal healthcare. People don’t care what something cost because they know their insurance will pay all of it but their $20 or $50 or whatever deductible per visit. Medicaid is abused by people taking their kids to the emergency room for sniffles. Doctor file fake claims on Medicare, hospitals jack base prices to offset what the insurance company will not pay and it goes on and on and on … how to fix it. Well speaking for myself and a health saving account that you start early in life and maintain it through out your life and even make it transferable to who ever you want when you die. Do away with insurance that pays for little sniffles and only have catastrophic coverage only insurance for those big bills like cancer, open heart surgery, kidney transplant, etc and all those little visits to the ER for sniffles comes out of your health saving account or your own pocket and I’d bet a dollar to donuts you wouldn’t see long lines at the hospital any more … it’s not as much fun to spend when it’s your money and if you have ownership in the cost you as the consumer will drive the price down. Again … it’s all about PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.
I could go on a long tirade about how to fix medical care but applying free market principle to the process.
ENVIRONMENT … yep talking about you EPA. To listen to libtards they’ll tell you that anyone that isn’t a libtard wants dirty air and dirty water … well that’s a dirty lie, but unlike the liberals I’m not going to cut my nose off to spite my face. No one wants population but you can over regulate and the EPA reached a point a few decade ago where they stopped being useful and started being harmful and in order to justify their existence that kept coming up with more and more straw men to fight and regulate. I think it all started back in the big global cooking scare of the early 1970′s …. remember the earth was going into another ice age and half the plant was going to starve to death … didn’t happen. Then there was acid rain that was going to kill all the trees and we’d all die from no oxygen … didn’t happen. Then there was the hole in the ozone and we were all going to die from solar radiation … that didn’t happen and now it’s global warming and to listen to liberals the coastal cities would now be under water and again it’s not happening and it won’t happen. Man does not have that kind of power over the planet … it’s straw men all of them. So what next I wonder? I’m guessing a super volcano or mega-quake brought on by oil drilling and fracking because we hate our children. Anyway using a common sense approach to the environment is the way to go – do the very best you can to protect the environment, but realize no one ever made an omelet without breaking a few eggs. No one wants dirt air or dirty water or clear cut forest, but one no wants to set in the dark and and walk everywhere they go … facts are facts we are depending on oil products until we invent or find something else that is just the way it is… it doesn’t have to be that way for all times. Just understand that until some super clean truly renewable energy supply is available we’re going to have to use fossil fuels. As for me my money is on hydrogen power it comes from water and it’s waste product is water is there any wonder there is so much water on the earth? Makes sense to me …. wind and solar are cute but neither is practical or realistic for real energy production.
Well that’s ends part 2 .. coming soon PART 3
March 12, 2013
I’ve long said I’m a Libertarian – oh I’ve got the crazy libs calling me a Repubtard or a NeoCon which just goes to show you how little research they do before they start throwing stones at me. So let me tell you now that in my opinion I’m a Libertarian and I was one for a long time before I knew I was one … so are you one too? Odds are you are more Libertarian than you think.
Now for the record I live in Kentucky … you know Rand Paul country and Rand represents the prevailing view of most Kentuckians, sadly most Kentuckians are Democrats even though they vote Republicans … old habits die hard. Anyway like Rand in Kentucky if you want to run for anything, vote for anything you have to be registered in one of the two major parties. See the GOP has many times introduced legislation for open elections but the libtards in the Democrat control House block it – I could go into a long list of reason why but in short it’s about party control as I think people would leave the Democrats in mass with open elections and most would call themselves “independents.”
What is a Libertarian? Well you could click that link and read about it on the Libertarian FAQ page. But I’ll tell you what it is to me.
The main belief to me is PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY – I will help those that cannot help themselves. the disabled, the infirm, the elderly, but I refuse to help the clueless and lazy. Screw them they’ll either starve or get up off their ass and find a job. See I believe government handout enable people to be lazy and why work when you can be paid to set on your butt? Self pride, like chivalry is dead for many people.
So let’s go down the list of some Libertarian beliefs …
First one that is often associated with Libertarians … DRUGS! The common belief is all Libertarians want all drug legal. Well this is not entirely correct and since I can’t speak for everyone I’ll speak for me – it all goes back to PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY – if you want to do drugs, then do it … BUT don’t come looking to me to bail you out, pay for your rehab, pay for your housing, pay for anything. It’s your life and if you screw it up it’s on you and you pay for your screw ups.
Well Dave… what about the children, the sweet innocent little children of these free wheeling crack whore druggies? Are you just going to let them starve and die in the street? (see you are a Republicans said in a Libtard voice) NO! NO! NO! But the solution is simple and full of common sense - if you are not fit to raise yourself then you are not fit to raise your children and there are plenty of people that are willing and able to do it. If that wasn’t the case then we wouldn’t have so many adopted children from Asia or the former Soviet Union and Central and South America … seems to me there is a child shortage in the US among responsible want to be parents. Good gawd do we have to import our children too? I think not!
Other issues are the size of government … anti-Libertarians like Juan McLame, Lindsey Gramnasty and the rest of the Democrat Party will try to tell you that Libertarians do not want any government at all … none, zero, zip, nada. The Libertarians want anarchy – this too is untrue. Government is here of protect the country, build the interstate infrastructure and issue the most general of regulations and nothing close to the micro-manage regulation gigantic government we have today. General regulations like one person, one vote and take non-partisan measures to insure that. Protection like actually securing the boarder and if it pisses Mexico (and Canada) off – to damn bad. We put country first, not what other countries think first. I don’t care what other countries think we have problems at home that need to be dealt with and I really don’t care what China, Europe, Russia, Mexico or anyone else thinks about it.
Another misbelief is “isolationism” – many wold tell you (Juan McLame) that the Libertarian kids want to take out toys and go home, pull the blinds and close the door. This too is bullshit – we live in a global economy that we’ve let the world walk all over us for years. It’s time we bring jobs home and sell out stuff to them instead of our jobs going there just so we can buy them back. Libtards talk about a level playing field for all while they cripple our economy with burdensome regulation, taxation, rules and a overall government hostility to business. I say free up the market and let demand and desire rule the day … how you ask? No minimum wage … minimum wage is nothing but a detriment to the wage price spiral and anyone with a basic understanding gets that if you increase the baseline wage then the baseline price of goods with go out … since places like China and India do not have a baseline wage they can beat us all day long in the wholesale market. Now I don’t think we should hire workers at 50 cents a day slaving away for 18 hours a day in unhealthy conditions, but what I do think is that the market should set the price if someone is willing to work for $5.00 or $4.00 an hour or less then let them and if a employer can’t find people to work for those wages then they’ll have to pay more it’s called the free market. It’s simple economics and I don’t expect the libtards to understand it …
Well this is going to take more time and space than I thought so this is the end of Part 1 … stay tuned for Part 2 in a few days.

I know people who do it. You probably know people who do it. And we’re not talking about falling in love.
File sharing, the euphemism for copying and sharing copyrighted material without paying, was one of the early hallmarks of the digital, anything-goes-on-the-Internet age. Names like Napster became synonymous with killing the music industry. And there were countless lawsuits against groups and individuals aimed at curbing illegal sharing — but nothing seemed to work.
Now, the concern is that the same fate will befall the movie business. With higher speed networks, it’s nearly as easy to share “Argo” as it is to share Adele. And everything is connect to the Web, from phones to TVs, so the movie and TV companies and individual content creators are worried.
So a new industry initiative has been launched that may turn your Internet service provider (ISP) into the unofficial Web police, curbing access for perceived abusers and forcing offenders to take remedial courses in copyright rules.
But never fear my friends… there are why to keep your ISP from watching your actions…
Here are a couple of simple one – first search up “Anonymous Browsing”
This is the 21st century, the so-called Digital Age, an age where information is more public than it is private. The sheer growth and pervasiveness of the Internet have led to additional concerns over privacy issues for a great number of people.
As we are entitled to our privacy in the physical world, why not so in the virtual one too? There are a lot of genuine reasons for why many persons wish to stay anonymous on the Internet, reasons ranging from simple precaution over personal issues, to more extreme behavior such as hiding browsing activities from a spouse and averting coercive authority.
So next time you download a song or a movie that you would waste money on if you had to, beware Big brother is watching you … but Big Brother can’t see everything if you know where to stand. Oh and by the way it’s NOT illegal to stream movie that aren’t downloaded from site like Veetle or Free Movie Home – the government and Hollyweird may not like it, but it’s not illegal to watch.

Read Todd’s open letter to Obama, below.
As a student who was shot and wounded during the Columbine massacre, I have a few thoughts on the current gun debate. In regards to your gun control initiatives:
Universal Background Checks
First, a universal background check will have many devastating effects. It will arguably have the opposite impact of what you propose. If adopted, criminals will know that they can not pass a background check legally, so they will resort to other avenues. With the conditions being set by this initiative, it will create a large black market for weapons and will support more criminal activity and funnel additional money into the hands of thugs, criminals, and people who will do harm to American citizens.
Second, universal background checks will create a huge bureaucracy that will cost an enormous amount of tax payers dollars and will straddle us with more debt. We cannot afford it now, let alone create another function of government that will have a huge monthly bill attached to it.
Third, is a universal background check system possible without universal gun registration? If so, please define it for us. Universal registration can easily be used for universal confiscation. I am not at all implying that you, sir, would try such a measure, but we do need to think about our actions through the lens of time.
It is not impossible to think that a tyrant, to the likes of Mao, Castro, Che, Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, and others, could possibly rise to power in America. It could be five, ten, twenty, or one hundred years from now — but future generations have the natural right to protect themselves from tyrannical government just as much as we currently do. It is safe to assume that this liberty that our forefathers secured has been a thorn in the side of would-be tyrants ever since the Second Amendment was adopted.
Ban on Military-Style Assault Weapons
The evidence is very clear pertaining to the inadequacies of the assault weapons ban. It had little to no effect when it was in place from 1994 until 2004. It was during this time that I personally witnessed two fellow students murder twelve of my classmates and one teacher. The assault weapons ban did not deter these two murderers, nor did the other thirty-something laws that they broke.
Gun ownership is at an all time high. And although tragedies like Columbine and Newtown are exploited by ideologues and special-interest lobbying groups, crime is at an all time low. The people have spoken. Gun store shelves have been emptied. Gun shows are breaking attendance records. Gun manufacturers are sold out and back ordered. Shortages on ammo and firearms are countrywide. The American people have spoken and are telling you that our Second Amendment shall not be infringed.
10-Round Limit for Magazines
Virginia Tech was the site of the deadliest school shooting in U.S. history. Seung-Hui Cho used two of the smallest caliber hand guns manufactured and a handful of ten round magazines. There are no substantial facts that prove that limited magazines would make any difference at all.
Second, this is just another law that endangers law-abiding citizens. I’ve heard you ask, “why does someone need 30 bullets to kill a deer?”
Let me ask you this: Why would you prefer criminals to have the ability to out-gun law-abiding citizens? Under this policy, criminals will still have their 30-round magazines, but the average American will not. Whose side are you on?
Lastly, when did they government get into the business of regulating “needs?” This is yet another example of government overreaching and straying from its intended purpose.
Selling to Criminals
Mr. President, these are your words: “And finally, Congress needs to help, rather than hinder, law enforcement as it does its job. We should get tougher on people who buy guns with the express purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. And we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this.”
Why don’t we start with Eric Holder and thoroughly investigate the Fast and Furious program?
Furthermore, the vast majority of these mass murderers bought their weapons legally and jumped through all the hoops — because they were determined to murder. Adding more hoops and red tape will not stop these types of people. It doesn’t now — so what makes you think it will in the future? Criminals who cannot buy guns legally just resort to the black market.
Criminals and murderers will always find a way.
Mr. President, in theory, your initiatives and proposals sound warm and fuzzy — but in reality they are far from what we need. Your initiatives seem to punish law-abiding American citizens and enable the murderers, thugs, and other lowlifes who wish to do harm to others.
Let me be clear: These ideas are the worst possible initiatives if you seriously care about saving lives and also upholding your oath of office. There is no dictate, law, or regulation that will stop bad things from happening — and you know that. Yet you continue to push the rhetoric. Why?
You said, “If we can save just one person it is worth it.” Well here are a few ideas that will save more that one individual:
First, forget all of your current initiatives and 23 purposed executive orders. They will do nothing more than impede law-abiding citizens and breach the intent of the Constitution. Each initiative steals freedom, grants more power to an already-overreaching government, and empowers and enables criminals to run amok.
Second, press Congress to repeal the “Gun Free Zone Act.” Don’t allow America’s teachers and students to be endangered one-day more. These parents and teachers have the natural right to defend themselves and not be looked at as criminals. There is no reason teachers must disarm themselves to perform their jobs. There is also no reason a parent or volunteer should be disarmed when they cross the school line.
This is your chance to correct history and restore liberty. This simple act of restoring freedom will deter would-be murderers and for those who try, they will be met with resistance.
Mr. President, do the right thing, restore freedom, and save lives. Show the American people that you stand with them and not with thugs and criminals.
Severely Concerned Citizen, Evan M. Todd

You want to know what is wrong with this country? It’s full of complete idiots and ultimate dumbasses – one thing I tell kids all the time is that if they do not pay attention in school that are distend for a life of saying “You want fries with that?”This is why people don’t understand the debt, they don’t understand the budget or the lack thereof one, there don’t understand unfunded liabilities, they don’t understand borrowing 40 cents of every dollar the government spends, hell don’t don’t understand that the money being spend is the taxpayers money. They cannot do the simple ass math needed to understand basic economics…
Doubt me here is an example …
Yesterday I went to Burger King – now I’m not a big fan of fast food and generally avoid it but I was in a hurry and they had a sale on fish sandwiches … on their marquee said “2 Big Fish Sandwiches $4.00″ … seems simple enough right? So simple a caveman could do the math on it right? Wrong…
Here is what happened …
I go in and place an order “TO GO” for myself and another person …. (I don’t do drive-thru as they screw up your order every time.)
So the conversation went about like this …
Idiot: Hi welcome to Burger King can I take your order? (I just skipped the ‘may’ vs ‘can’ screw up it’s not worth wasting my time.)
Me: “I would like the two of the 2 for $4 fish sandwich deals and 2 large fries to go please”
She rings it up and says… “That will be $28.58″ (She said it with a straight face and it never occurred to her that might be a little high for what I ordered.)
Me in a rather WTF voice: ‘No it’s not!’
Now my math – which is generally right 99.99999% of the time – my order should have came to $11.98 plus tax — The math 2X$4=$8 (fish sammies) and 2X$1.99=$3.98 (lg fries) or $8 + $3.98 = $11.98 X 6% tax = 72 cents tax … and boom a grand total $12.70 – this is basic math you can or SHOULD be able to do quickly and easily in your head. It’s not that complicated.
So I said – I think you need to try that again.’ So she tried again and this time she got $19.07 to which I said “Still wrong, try again” … now the women was using a register and she was a women not some kid fresh out of high school, she was a grown women that for all practical purposes looked to be of at least average intelligence. Well she wasn’t … she was a moron. This went on about 4 more times and each time she arrived at a different amount and was becoming more and more flustered and visibly upset asking me a couple of times if I was sure she was wrong. I simply said “You haven’t got the same amount twice, what do you think?” – The closest she got to the correct amount was $15.32!
Finally she tossed in the towel and called the manage over – the manager was a younger girl with way too much make up on to cover her zits and in serious need of a dental plan. She voided everything out and and punched it all in and somehow came up with the total of $9.54 … I leaned down on the counter and I said, that’s wrong too … that’s less than it should be… but I’ve been standing here for 15 minutes becoming ever increasingly frustrated with the American educational system so I said… “Tell you what… I’ll take it, I’ll take the $9.54″ and I handed her $10.00 – I’m sure I could have caused a head explosions if I whipped out exact change after they punched in the $10 into the register.
These people are going to school, getting a diploma and being turned out on the street complete morons incapable of doing basic math and they are VOTING! They are uneducated and ill informed… they are the low information voter and the reason we have Obama in the White House. They are just too simple to understand the complex issues facing the country – they are the American’s Got Talent – Dancing with the Stars crowds that hear only sound bites and they vote for handouts. They are why this country is failing by voting for and allowing panderers and liars to be elected.
It’s really sad that these people choose to be morons.
Oh side note – the biggest benefit of keeping a running total in your head of what you are spending in a store is to insure you are not ripped off at the register. So many stores do not price their products and if you don’t keep a total in your head you’ll be over-charged for an item priced wrong in the system or inadvertently buy a more expensive item placed in the wrong place on the shelf. And if you are one of those people that need a calculator then get one…. so by keeping a running total when I get to the checkout I generally know within a dollar or two of what my final total should be and if it’s off we’ll go back over every item if I don’t catch it when they are ringing it up.
She I can’t remember a persons name to save my life but I can remember prices of nearly everything I buy, so I watch when they scan it and I’ll know when it’s wrong.
February 14, 2013
This is a post I put up in 2009 and here it is a again …
Valentine’s Day, yet another goofy holiday made up to exploit men and their wallets … so lets look up a few Valentines Day facts.
I’ll start out with my personal favorite …
1. 17%-21% of all flowers sent on Valentine’s Day are brought by women and sent to themselves – so when you see so tubby-tubby 2X4 get a big vase of roses at work, know that there is a 1 in 5 chance she sent them to themselves.
2. 73% of people who buy Valentine’s Day flowers are men (being guilted by their woman), while only 27% are sent by women (and they are lesbians I bet). What the hell happened to equal rights? Let’s go women pony up and buy more flowers for someone other than yourself. Spend that $100 on your man for something that will be dead within a week.
3. Every year around 1 billion Valentine cards are bought and sold … what about the trees? Do you not card about the trees?
4. Teachers receive the most Valentine’s Day cards, followed by children, mothers, wives, and then, sweethearts. Children between ages 6 to 10 exchange more than 650 million Valentine’s cards with teachers, classmates, and family members…. start that peer pressure early would you.
5. A single perfect red rose framed with baby’s breath is named by some florists as a “signature rose,” and is the preferred choice for most for giving on Valentine’s Day, anniversaries and birthdays. Yeah whatever, it’s still a murdered flower that will be dead soon … hope you’re happy, killer.
6. The red rose was the favorite flower of Venus, the Roman goddess of love. The color red stands for strong romantic feelings making the red rose the flower of love. Red is alsothe color of blood … the blood bled by the murdered rose.
7. Cupid is a symbol of Valentine’s Day. Cupid was associated with Valentine’s Day because he was the son of Venus, the Roman god of love and beauty. Cupid often appears on Valentine cards and gift tokens holding a bow and arrows as he is believed to use magical arrows to arouse feelings of love. Cupid is also a little fat naked kid so what are you a perv?
8. Verona, the Italian city where Shakespeare’s play lovers Romeo and Juliet lived, receives about 1,000 letters every year sent to Juliet on Valentine’s Day. What the hell for? Is she going to come down the chimney and leave chocolate? It was a play 500 years ago and I’m pretty sure she’s dead now if she ever existed at all.
9. In the Middle Ages young men and women drew the names from a bowl to see who would be their Valentine. They would wear this name pinned on their sleeves for one week. This was done so that it becomes easy for other people to know your true feelings. This was known as “to wear your heart on your sleeve”. So the next time you see some overly sensitive person that wears their heart on their sleeve, you now know where that comes from.
10. On February 14th wooden love spoons were carved and given as gifts on Valentine’s Day in Wales. Hearts, keys and keyholes were favorite Valentine decorations on the wooden spoons. This Valentine decoration meant, “You unlock my heart!”
11. The most beautiful and incredible gift of love is the monument Taj Mahal in India. Built by Mughal Emperor Shahjahan as a memorial to his wife it stands as the emblem of the eternal love story. Work on the Taj Mahal began in 1634 and continued for almost 22 years and required the labor of 20,000 workers from all over India and Central Asia. (She was quoted as saying “OH SHEBA!! DO you know how hard it is to keep white clean?)
12. In America, the pilgrims used to send confections, such as sugar wafers, marzipan, sweetmeats and sugar plums, to their affianced. Lot of value was placed on these gifts because they included what was then a rare product of the time – sugar. After the late 1800′s, beet sugar became widely used and more available, and sweet gifts continued to be cherished and enjoyed. So now you know why Americans are fat.
13. Amongst the earliest Valentine’s Day gifts were candies. The most common were chocolates in heart shaped boxes. They are commonly way over priced, over packaged and under packed.
14. The heart is associated to Valentine’s Day as it is considered the source of all human emotions. The custom of drawing a heart shape is supposed to have come from early attempts to draw an organ that no one had seen. The symbol came on to become as a sign of love… so thank goodness they didn’t know emotion came from the groin, or right now we’d all be eating cream filled candied cocks. I’ll pass thank you.
There you go … worthless Valentine’s Day facts.
… and since I was so cruel to force that hideous beast on you at the start of the post … you are rewarded here with the real reason for Valentine’s Day, getting some babe to play dress up just to leave her over priced outfit a crumpled pile on the floor. Be serious to you really think Valentine’s Day is about cards, candy and flowers? No, Valentines Day is about sex.

We all know Bill Clinton lies, he has been impeached for it (something libs like to forget) and it really doesn’t come as a surprise Hillary Clinton lies – after all she has a long history of it. We have her claiming she went into Bosnia under sniper fire and that clearly wasn’t the case …
Clinton was responding to a question Monday from the Philadelphia Daily News’ editorial board about video footage of the event that contradicted her assertion that her group “ran with our heads down” from the plane to avoid sniper fire at the Tuzla Air Base.
But news video footage of her arrival at Tuzla shows Clinton, then the first lady, calmly walking from the rear ramp of a U.S. Air Force plane with her daughter, Chelsea, then 16, at her side. Both Clintons held their heads up and did not appear rushed.
The video shows Clinton spending several minutes talking with the group, including an 8-year-old Bosnian girl who presented her with a poem, and later greeting U.S. troops.
I think we all know that “misspoke” is political talk for I got caught lying and now I’m trying to dig out of this hole., but there is Whitewater, all of Bill’s affairs, and several other events in her life where she has been caught lying – but this time people died. (Not counting Vince Foster)
If fact here is a short list of some of her lies…
Hillary simply cannot tell the truth. Here’s her scorecard:
• Chelsea was jogging around the Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. (She was in bed watching it on TV.)
• Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. (She admitted she was wrong. He climbed Mt. Everest five years after her birth.)
• She was under sniper fire in Bosnia. (A girl presented her with flowers at the foot of the ramp.)
• She learned in The Wall Street Journal how to make a killing in the futures market. (It didn’t cover the market back then.)
Whoppers She Won’t Confess To
• She didn’t know about the FALN pardons.
• She didn’t know that her brothers were being paid to get pardons that Clinton granted.
• Taking the White House gifts was a clerical error.
• She didn’t know that her staff would fire the travel office staff after she told them to do so.
• She didn’t know that the Peter Paul fundraiser in Hollywood in 2000 cost $700,000 more than she reported it had.
• She opposed NAFTA at the time.
• She was instrumental in the Irish peace process.
• She urged Bill to intervene in Rwanda.
• She played a role in the ’90s economic recovery.
• The billing records showed up on their own.
• She thought Bill was innocent when the Monica scandal broke.
• She was always a Yankees fan.
• She had nothing to do with the New Square Hasidic pardons (after they voted for her 1,400-12 and she attended a meeting at the White House about the pardons).
• She negotiated for the release of refugees in Macedonia (who were released the day before she got there).
With a record like that, is it any wonder that we suspect her of being less than honest and straightforward?
This week Hillary finally after a number of fake delays and fake injuries she finally testified about Benghazi – oh she turned on the tears and feigned outrage and pointed fingers, she did everything but tell the truth…
(By the way delaying interrogation is a tactic taught to let it get cold and get you time to come up with a viable lie and appropriate indignation for being questioned – seriously do you think she was really injured?)
Hillary Clinton Exposed Lying in Benghazi Hearings
Outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asked on Wednesday at a Senate hearing about the White House official story that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi sprang from spontaneous protest. Her response: “so what?”
They lied. That’s why it matters. People holding public office have a duty to tell the truth to the people they represent.
“What difference does it make [whether American's at Benghazi died from a protest or not]?” That’s what Clinton testified Wednesday before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
Secretary Clinton was pressed by Senator Ron Johnson (R-Minn.) to explain why the Obama administration stood by an absurd story claiming that four Americans we’re murdered in Libya due to a spontaneous protest gone bad.
Secretary Clinton’s response?
“With all due respect, the fact is we have four dead Americans. Whether it was because of a protest or because guys outside for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans. What difference at this point does it make?” Clinton said.
Really? The indignation card? Really? The “it doesn’t matter” card?
In 1974 Clinton was a member of the impeachment inquiry staff advising the House Committee on the Judiciary during the Watergate scandal. What difference did it make whether it was a burglary or not at that point? All the difference in the world to the American people and the only sitting U.S. president to ever be removed from office (technicality: Nixon resigned before officially being removed – the only sitting president to resign).
Picking apart her statement “Was it because of protest or because guys outside for a walk one night decide to go kill some Americans,” I don’t believe Secretary Clinton is dumb, but she must think everyone else is “guys out for a walk?” And she’s still trying to leave a seed of doubt that ‘hey, maybe it was a protest.’
Thanks for playing, but no. We know beyond a shadow of a doubt it was not a protest. An independent State Department investigation (the Pickering Report) led by Thomas Pickering, President George H.W. Bush’s U.N. ambassador, confirms that “there was no protest prior to the attacks,” contrary to administration’s position for several weeks afterward that the attacks arose from a spontaneous demonstration against a YouTube video had gotten out of hand (an extremely low budget video that was released nearly 3 months earlier).
She goes on to say “it is our job to figure what happened, and prevent it from ever happening again”
We know now that there were live video feeds. Documents released by the House Oversight Committee show that on the day of the attack (September 11) the White House situation room starts receiving emails at about 1 p.m. that the mission is under hostile surveillance and the Pentagon sends a drone with a video camera which provided real-time video to the White House, the State Department, the Pentagon, and the CIA.
We know what happened. We even know that an Embassy cable on June 25 expressed fear of rising Islamic extremism in eastern Libya around Benghazi, and noted that the black flag of Al-Qaeda “has been spotted several times flying over government buildings and training facilities.”
We know the administration received requests for additional security from the embassy and the ambassador himself as early as February. On August 2, Ambassador Stevens sent a cable requesting 11 additional body guards, noting “Host nation security support is lacking and cannot be depended on to provide a safe and secure environment for the diplomatic mission of outreach.”
These requests for additional security were repeatedly denied.
We know that they administration lied. We know President Obama repeatedly blamed the attack a Youtube movie. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney lied (both blaming violence on the Youtube video and stating the White House was not “aware of any actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi was planned or imminent. That report is false”). Secretary Clinton lied. UN Ambassador Susan Rice lied. The below video shows Secretary Clinton blamed the attacks on the YouTube video on September 14th.
What difference does it make? Ask Nixon. All the difference in the world. They knew the truth, lied repeatedly about it, and still try to sort-of, maybe sound like it possibly could be. The American people deserve to know the truth. We deserve better of our pubic officials and elected representatives. Character, though scoffed at sometimes, still matters. That’s why this matters.
During the hearing all Clinton did was bath in admiration from Democrats on the committee and ran out the clock with rambling and indignation on questions from Republicans – nothing was really answered in this fat dog and ugly pony show so in the words of Hamlet … “The lady doth protest too much, methinks“
Clinton and Obama dropped the ball – Obama is to caught up in being a cult leader and Hillary is to busy seeing the world on our dime and sampling every booze on the planet, they are both equally incompetent and unqualified to do that job.
