Sunday Respite: Hillary Clinton at her best

Something for a Sunday respite. Hint for Hillary and her wizardry: Medvedev was simply a puppet of Putin. Does she really believe what she says? Yes, so look where we are. Oh shucks, Putin invaded another country, murdered about 300 souls, but other than that.

The second clip takes a strong stomach, so just a few moments is all that is necessary.

 

QUESTION: “You famously pressed the reset button. Are you embarrassed by that now, that gesture?”

CLINTON: “No I think it was a brilliant stroke which in retrospect it appears even more so, because look at what we accomplished.Between the Russian invasion of Georgia in August 2008, which of course torpedoed relations between United States and the Russia for good reason. We come into office, and for that period of time, the interregnum if you will, Medvedev is President, Putin is Prime Minister, and there were jobs that we wanted to get done. We wanted to get Russia on board with tough sanctions against Iran. We wanted to have a new START Treaty to limit nuclear weapons. We wanted to get their help in transiting across through huge country to get things we needed into Afghanistan. We got all that done. Putin comes back. Look where we are now. He invaded another country, so yes, but while we had that moment, we seized it, we used it, and succeeded.”

Hillary just can’t get over the hoot of the night. Think about having to hear this on a steady diet.

Hillary Clinton and her Bosnia Faux memory recall – what difference does it make?

A memory of a lack of memory of Hillary. But then again, what difference does it make? Looking back at this report by Sharyl Attkisson,a portent of things to come. For Sharyl as well. Still waiting for the Benghazi apology.

Uploaded on Mar 24, 2008
CBS news exposes the real story of Hillary Clinton and her 1996 trip to Bosnia.

Sound familiar? We are waiting for a Benghazi apology as well

Hillary Clinton at her WORST! Obnoxious Apology WOW

Uh, OK. YOU CAUGHT ME IN A LIE… however, given that I have been trained in the Bill Clinton School for Compulsive Liars, I have now learned NEVER TO ADMIT TO A MISTAKE, always ANGLE things. Find a Nuance that makes it SOUND like you are sorry, then take two steps back from it and LET ‘ER RIP!!!!

Tall tales from Hildebeast:

On a couple of occasions in the last weeks, I just said some things that weren‘t in keeping with what I knew to be the case and what I had written about in my book. And you know, I‘m embarrassed by it. I‘m very sorry I said it. I have said that, you know, it just didn‘t jive with what I had written about and knew to be the truth.
after Bill Clinton claimed Hillary apologized for lying about her trip to Bosnia

December 29, 2007, regarding her 1996 trip to Bosnia. [19]

I was sleep-deprived, and I misspoke.
You know, I have written about this and described it in many different settings, and I did misspeak the other day. This has been a very long campaign.
March 24 & 25, 2008, retracting her remarks regarding Bosnia in private interviews. [23]

I can tell you that I may be a lot of things but I am not dumb. And I wrote about going to Bosnia in my book in 2004, I laid it all out there. And you’re right, on a couple of occasions in the last weeks I just said some things that weren’t in keeping with what I knew to be the case and what I had written about in my book. And you know, I‘m embarrassed by it. I‘m very sorry I said it. I have said that, you know, it just didn‘t jive with what I had written about and knew to be the truth. So I know that it is something that some people have said, “Wait a minute. What happened here?” But I have talked about this and written about it and then, unfortunately, in a few occasions I was not as accurate as I have been in the past.

Hillary Clinton laughingly discusses her defense of a child rapist

Look, I know that everyone is entitled to a defense attorney if charged with a crime. Having said that, it is the careless laughing Hillary who discusses her defense of a child rapist that is pure Hillary. My understanding of the law which is less than perfect, if the defense attorney knows the client is guilty they should remove themselves from the case.The audio is a six-minute winding conversation, and if you don’t have the time or patience, wander over to the Free Beacon for a good read on our gal.

But Hillary Clinton’s most revealing comments—and those most likely to inflame critics—concern the decades-old rape case.

‘The Prosecutor Had Evidence’

Free Beacon:

Newly discovered audio recordings of Hillary Clinton from the early 1980s include the former first lady’s frank and detailed assessment of the most significant criminal case of her legal career: defending a man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl.

“I had him take a polygraph, which he passed – which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs,” she added with a laugh.

Clinton can also be heard laughing at several points when discussing the crime lab’s accidental destruction of DNA evidence that tied Taylor to the crime.

The recordings, which date from 1983-1987 and have never before been reported, include Clinton’s suggestion that she knew Taylor was guilty at the time. She says she used a legal technicality to plead her client, who faced 30 years to life in prison, down to a lesser charge. The recording and transcript, along with court documents pertaining to the case can be found over at the Beacon

The full story of the Taylor defense calls into question Clinton’s narrative of her early years as a devoted women and children’s advocate in Arkansas—a narrative the 2016 presidential frontrunner continues to promote on her current book tour.

Her comments on the rape trial are part of more than five hours of unpublished interviews conducted by Arkansas reporter Roy Reed with then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton and his wife in the mid-1980s.

So she got him off with time served – two months. By Lying. It would be great to find the rapist rap sheet  to find out how many more women he raped. The Daily Caller has even more:

Even Diane Sawyer had a tough time believing Hillary’s spin on her financial distress. Something on the lighter side for a weekend. We sure need it.

 

Clinton unable to name one achievement during her tenure

Wouldn’t you think by now Clinton could come up with some sort of achievement for an answer? There are a number of clips out there as she moves about peddling her book. Let’s focus on this one. If I thought I was sick of looking at Obama, Hillary and her faux smile is getting close to first place these days. I would say she avoided the answer. Maybe the interviews are not quite as friendly this time around?

Clinton Unable To Name A Signature Achievement From Her State Dept Tenure (June 6, 2014)

Tripoli about to fall, U.S. embassy ready to be evacuated

Tripoli, Libya (CNN) — The U.S. military has doubled the number of aircraft standing by in Italy if needed to evacuate Americans from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, Libya, CNN has learned.

Thanks for the memory Hillary. Just a few reminders of your wizardy as Secretary of State. Who didn’t see this coming?

A decision to evacuate as violence in the Libyan capital grows is “minute by minute, hour by hour,” a defense official told CNN on Monday.

Fierce fighting swept across the city Sunday after armed men stormed the country’s interim Parliament. Sporadic bursts of gunfire and blasts could still be heard on the outskirts of the capital Monday evening.

The violence appeared to be some of the worst since the 2011 revolution that ousted longtime leader Moammar Gadhafi

Hillary Clinton on Gaddafi: “We came, we saw, he died” 

Oct, 2011

.

Meanwhile, the Saudi ambassador to Libya announced that his country’s embassy and consulate in Tripoli closed Monday because of the violence, and the staff has left Tripoli, according to the official Saudi Press Agency. The sites will reopen when the situation stabilizes, Ambassador Mohammed Mahmoud Al-Ali said, according to the report.

Turkey took similar measures, shutting down its consulate in Benghazi, Turkey’s semi-official Anadolu news agency reported.

ED: With everyone leaving town, why are we still there? What do we have to have, another Benghazi????

U.S. aircraft arrive in Italy

Four additional U.S. V-22 Osprey aircraft “arrived overnight” at the naval base in Sigonella, Italy, to join four V-22s and 200 Marines that had been moved there last week, a U.S. defense source said.

Clinton refused to call Boko Haram a terrorist group even after threatening our ambassador

Shades of Benghazi. Hillary got lucky on this one. Stevens wasn’t so lucky. Better yet? The U.S.  accused Nigeria of war crimes in going after Boko Haram. Now we learn that we were fine in having our Ambassador to Nigeria threatened without a response. Does anyone really wonder anymore why we are so disrespected and the world is winding up in a free for all?

Secretary of State John Kerry says he has “credible evidence” that Nigeria has committed “human rights violations” in retaliating against the Islamists.

Daily Mail :

Boko Haram vowed in February 2012 to assassinate Ambassador Terence McCulley if the U.S. helped Nigeria with terror-fighting efforts
‘We know his house … We know his vehicle and the time he leaves his house and the time he returns,’ the group said in a communique to media
The warning was similar to Ansar al-Shariah’s pledge to kill U.S. officials in Benghazi, Libya, three months before the deadly 2012 terror attack there
Despite clear threats, Hillary Clinton’s State Department fought efforts to officially designate the mass-murdering Nigerians as a terrorist group
A former State Dept. official said naming new terror groups ‘sent the wrong message’ about al-Qaeda and its allies as Barack Obama ran for re-election

Boko Haram, the African Islamist terror group whose April kidnapping of nearly 300 young girls has united the civilized world in anger, promised to assassinate U.S. ambassador to Nigeria Terence McCulley in February 2012, vowing to murder him if America signed a terrorism-fighting Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with the government in Abuja.

McCulley, now the U.S. ambassador to Ivory Coast, was not harmed. But the threat, coming amid a years-long bombing campaign that killed more than 1,400 Nigerian civilians, didn’t move then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to fast-track the addition of Boko Haram to the U.S. government’s official list of international terrorist groups.

Independent media outlets inside Nigeria first reported on February 9, 2012 that an unnamed Boko Haram leader issued a statement promising that ‘we will murder the U.S. Ambassador if the MOU is signed.’

The revelation provides a stark parallel with assassination warnings issued by Islamist groups in Benghazi, Libya in the months before the September 11, 2012 attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American personnel.

U.S. urged restraint earlier in striking back at Boko Haram

On May 18, 2013 Nigerian war planes “struck militant camps in the northeast” in an attempt to stem the growing tide of Islamic terrorists in the area. The U.S. quickly warned that Nigeria needs to be sure “to respect human rights and not harm civilians.”

Reuters reports that Nigerian troops used “jets and helicopters to bombard targets in their biggest offensive since the Boko Haram group launched a revolt almost four years ago.”

But three days after President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency in the northeast, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry issued a strongly worded statement saying: “We are … deeply concerned by credible allegations that Nigerian security forces are committing gross human rights violations, which, in turn, only escalate the violence and fuel extremism.”

The situation in northeast Nigeria has become so bad that President Goodluck Jonathan declared a state of emergency there days ago.

Since that time, as Nigeria has used jets and helicopters to try to rein the Islamists in, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says he has “credible evidence” that Nigeria has committed “human rights violations” in retaliating against the Islamists.

Kerry said he condemns “Boko Haram’s campaign of terror in the strongest terms,” but he wants Nigeria to show “restraint” in their response.

Here is another wizard from the State Department:

“ I want to take this opportunity to stress one key point and that is that religion is not driving extremist violence either in Jos, or northern Nigeria,” Assistant Secretary of State Carson said Monday at a forum on U.S. policy toward Nigeria held at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, D.C. ED.

U.S. urged Nigeria restraint earlier in striking back at Terrorists

Let us not forget Johnnie Carson, Assistant Secretary of State for his wise counsel in the Nigerian affair as well as Hillary, and our latest savant, John Jerry. Where is the media in reporting these wacko statements that reflect our failed foreign policy? Not only that, the U.S. funded the rebuilding of a Nigerian Muslim minaret.

Hillary Clinton not only refused to designate Boko Haram as a terrorist group, despite an unparalleled record of terror, but the Obama regime actually even urged Nigeria to show “restraint” against them, as reported a year ago:

Via Breitbart:

On May 18, 2013 Nigerian war planes “struck militant camps in the northeast” in an attempt to stem the growing tide of Islamic terrorists in the area. The U.S. quickly warned that Nigeria needs to be sure “to respect human rights and not harm civilians.

Commie Blaster: Obama Regime Rebuilt Mosque in Boko Haram Area

In 2011, the State Department even provided funds to restore the 15th century Gobarau Minaret in Katsina State in Nigeria’s predominantly Muslim north, an area which has become a virtual killing field for Christians at the hands of Boko Haram.

Since 2009 over 288 Christian churches in Nigeria have been burned, thousands of Christian-owned homes destroyed, and over 2,000 Christians killed, including in July 2012 when fifty members of a northern Nigerian church were burned to death in their pastor’s house.

And how about what Carson has to say on the matter?

Medicare Drug Coverage saved in part by Whitewater’s Webb Hubbell

Anyone recall Webb Hubbell of Hillary Clinton’s early years at the Rose law firm? Many believed he played an important part in the Whitewater cover up. Interesting that yesterday I happened to post how HHS Nominee Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Dumpster-Dived Dead Vince Foster’s Trash.  Vince Foster, another player in the Whitewater cover up who came to an “untimely death.”

Looks like now we have Mr. Hubbell to thank in part for saving  Medicare’s s Part D Drug coverage of certain drugs. We knew that Medicare was going to be plundered for Obamacare. This was the first step. And at the hearing of Sylvia Burrell it was claimed:

The questioning was surprisingly soft. While some lawmakers quizzed her on the Independent Payment Advisory Board, a federal agency created by the law to lower Medicare costs that some conservatives feared would be “death panels,” Burwell simply responded that it was her estimate that the board would never actually be activated. (This was the most absurd).

Please tell me what the heck taking away coverage of anti-rejection drugs leads to? Death. Period. Medicare already has cut home healthcare services. We know where that leads as well. A good story over at WND and good coverage of Hubbell’s early years.

WASHINGTON – One day after former Clinton administration official Webb Hubbell sounded off against a proposed Medicare rule change in a WND commentary, the Obama administration dropped plans to restrict access to antidepressant and antipsychotic medications, anti-rejection  and other classes of drugs as well.

“So my antennae naturally went up when an article appeared in the New York Times with the headline ‘Plan to Limit Some Drugs in Medicare Is Criticized.’ After reading the article and doing my research I came to the conclusion that HHS ‘has now gone to meddling.’”

Hubbell’s research shows the administration’s plan has to do with cost and reducing drug overuse. DHHS cites a 2008 actuarial study stating that the six protected classes accounted for 17 to 33 percent of drug spending.

“Apparently money trumps well-informed, accepted and successful medical care even if it undermines ‘a key protection for some of the sickest, most vulnerable Medicare beneficiaries,’” he writes.

In a stunning reversal, the Department of Health and Human Services killed the proposal a day after the official comment period ended and a day before the House of Representatives was set to vote on a bill to block the change.

What concerned Hubbell, who served 21 months in prison in the 1990s after pleading guilty to federal charges of overbilling clients at the Rose Law Firm where he was partnered with Hillary Clinton and Vince Foster, was the DHHS plan to allow insurance companies to limit Medicare coverage for certain classes of drugs, including anti-rejection medications for transplant patients and medications to treat depression and schizophrenia in the elderly.

Hubbell said he was concerned personally about the idea because he is covered by Medicare, is a transplant survivor and takes anti-rejection medication every day.

After Hubbell resigned as the third ranking official in the U.S. Justice Department and before his indictment, he received legal consulting contracts for $450,000 from various clients including $100,000 from the Chinese-connected Indonesian Riady family and $62,755 from Revlon at the recommendation of Clinton confidant and political fixer Vernon Jordan. This became the focus of an investigation by Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr. Starr found Hubbell “did little or no work for the money paid by his consulting clients,” but determined there was insufficient evidence to conclude that the money was intended to influence Hubbell’s cooperation with investigators in the Whitewater investigation.

HHS Nominee Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Dumpster-Dived Dead Vince Foster’s Trash

In what has to be labeled as nothing more than a love fest, the HHS nominee Secretary hearing of Sylvia Mathews Burrell who will head up Obamacare was the most disgusting display of non vetting I have ever watched. John MCain took me over the edge. So my regular readers will have to humor me, as I run a re-do of an earlier post. Remember how we were going to get a shot at presenting all that was wrong with Obamacare when the GOP got their shot at the nominee?  Fools all of them. The headline?  HHS Nominee Burwell Faces Barrage of Flattery at First  TIME ‎-

Ms. Burrell with Bill Clinton: No worries Bill, I took care of everything. Don’t worry about the Whitewater notes of Vince Foster. (Not an actual quote)

  

Republican senators, acknowledging their deep support of would-be Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell i

I advised her against taking the leadership position at HHS,” said Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) as he sat as a witness on behalf of Burwell. “After all, who would recommend their friend take over as captain of the Titanic, after it hit the iceberg?”

Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) gave her an outright endorsement for the position, saying Burwell had “a portfolio of experience that would make her a tremendous asset.” (understatement of the day)

The questioning was surprisingly soft. While some lawmakers quizzed her on the Independent Payment Advisory Board, a federal agency created by the law to lower Medicare costs that some conservatives feared would be “death panels,” Burwell simply responded that it was her estimate that the board would never actually be activated. (This was the most absurd).

So Ms Burwell will slide into the position of head of Obamacare without a smidgen of discussion of her political ties. Rather than choosing someone with a Healthcare background, let’s pick another political operative. She got herself off to a good start with helping out Hillary and Bill Clinton and picking through dead Vince Foster’s trash the day of his death. No worries over White Water, Travel Gate or who knows what. She will be an excellent foot soldier. So just who is she?

Who is Burwell?

According to the Free Beacon:

In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster.

Foster’s death was officially ruled a suicide. The Clinton White House eventually admitted to misleading investigators about how senior officials had seized and disposed of files relating to the first couple’s controversial investments in the Whitewater Development Corporation, a failed real estate venture.

Clinton spokeswoman Dee Dee Myers admitted that then-White House counsel Bernard Nussbaum, who had recovered documents relating to the Whitewater controversy from Foster’s office after his death, did not turn over the documents to the Clinton family’s personal attorney, contrary to what White House officials had claimed. Nussbaum had actually given the documents to Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, who placed them in a White House safe for five days before being turned over to the family attorney.

Under questioning, Sylvia Mathews and her colleagues denied impeding a police investigation into Foster’s death after his body was found in a northern Virginia park. According to the New York Times, Mathews testified “in laborious detail about what she had found in Mr. Foster’s garbage on the night he died.”

Recall Travel Gate? For those too young:  Vince Foster Dead. A great link for a refresher.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/850133/posts

…the long-hidden notebook kept by Vincent Foster had been in the office of White House Counsel Bernard Nussbaum following Mr. Foster’s death. The notebook chronicled Mr. Foster’s anguish over Hillary Clinton’s role in the firings, Harry Thomason’s potential criminal liability, and whether the White House scandal containment strategy could be maintained to stop at the level of David Watkins.

(snip) NY Times:

The committee today began what will be weeks of intensive questioning of White House aides about whether Mrs. Clinton, in advance of investigators, had told officials to remove papers from the office of Vincent W. Foster Jr., her close friend and former law partner who was the deputy White House counsel at the time he killed himself on July 20, 1993.

(snip)

The committee also focused today on Mr. Foster’s office trash. Members questioned Sylvia Mathews, a former White House aide, in laborious detail about what she had found in Mr. Foster’s garbage on the night he died. Other than a few routine documents, the garbage contained nothing that shed light on Mr. Foster’s thinking, said Ms. Mathews, who is now chief of staff at the Treasury Department.

Republicans on the committee found it significant, however, that Ms. Mathews had also managed to retrieve a special bag of garbage containing classified and sensitive papers that was usually destroyed by the Secret Service. The contents of that bag were never examined by anyone to see if Mr. Foster had left anything in it that might shed light on his state of mind.

Ms. Mathews said that she got the bag from the Secret Service and began looking briefly through it, when she discovered that it contained all of the classified garbage from the West Wing.

Our gal Sarah Palin has an idea of who Sylvia Mathews Burwell is. She gives it to her on her Face Book page to the delight of the Liberal media.
Remember last year when America’s war memorials, national parks, patriotic amenities, student White House tours, etc. were shut down because the Obama administration’s spending priorities are so out of whack? Americans were told the Federal government didn’t have enough of our tax dollars to allow WWII vets to walk across a public sidewalk to visit a statue honoring these heroes. This, during the “shutdown” when crony capitalism, earmarks, and waste and fraud continued to fill the swamp. This, while the first family continued to live elaborately large and some in Congress had the gall to whine that they aren’t paid enough. This, while the people’s will continued to be arrogantly ignored.

What a cold and callous bureaucrat it was who’d direct that quite revealing fiasco, an episode over which the Obama Administration never recovered in the court of public opinion. 

Who would do such a thing? Who would punish patriotic Americans? Who sent the email initiating all this?

The political operative Sylvia Burwell.

 

UPDATE: From the Daily Kos- which linked to us. I am not feeling the love.

Bunkerville blog: HHS Nominee Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Dumpster-Dived Dead Vince Foster’s Trash

Dumpster-diving. I see. How is that working out for you?

This is the best you have, and these are the best sites still standing on the Burwell nomination? LOL

Even Free Republic has given up. They have had nothing on Burwell for weeks, although they still have plenty of CT on Obamacare overall.
