TK:

Is Ryan a leftist?

narciso

I think he is a large reason for the squirrel, move,

http://www.weeklystandard.com/keyword/Abu-Sufian-bin-Qumu

within a year of his release, he was training the miliitias on behalf of whom,

Janet

How hard is it, Hillary?

Thank you for that question, Mr. Smith. It is very hard.
Everything is very hard & we are hurt.

Cecil Turner

This hearing canbe a template for Repub ads

Yes, but it's not like there isn't plenty of material out there already.

Janet

Westmoreland (R) - if you knew about previous attacks....why didn't you do anything about that?

Threadkiller

Are we sure that the same adults in the GOPe will suffer any more from the Benghazi hearing than they already have by not bringing a fucking filament light bulb back into the American Dream.

I hope any caucus that has nothing to do with the asshole leadership's, and their loyal sympathizers', inability to reverse anything detrimental to a free society buries the entire GOP.

maryrose

Falls back on no one requesting to leave

Janet

knowing the threat had grown...what did you do?

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--Third, if a significant number of conservatives hold out, the leadership will get votes from the opposition providing a perverse incentive to even more compromise.--

And there we have it. The GOPe would rather make the compromises that satisfy Dems than the conservatives in their own party.
Apparently some see that as a feature not a bug.

maryrose

Not aware of 18 other warnings
Incompetent worst SOS ever!

Miss Marple 2

He has her on the ropes with this. Note how they maneuvered.

Confronted with the stack of emails discrepancy, she says she donducted a lot of business in phone calls and meetings.

So then this guy points out that intelligence reports 4500 pages were submitted, and did she see them./

I note how she says there were no "recommendations". How about REQUESTS?

Threadkiller

Is Ryan a leftist?

I believe his spineless nature favors the agenda of a leftist more so than most members of the freedom caucus.

He doesn't have to be a leftist to accept the sand in his eyeballs delivered by a leftist.

Janet

How many attacks would it have taken for YOU to care?

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Here's guy who knows who his actual enemies are and acts accordingly. Netenyahu to BBC bitch; Are we living on the same planet?

Appalled

Jim Eagle

From Jay Cost:

Jay Cost ‏@JayCostTWS 2m2 minutes ago
So, per Westmoreland via Morrell, there were 18 attacks that Clinton was unaware of. Builds on Roby & Brooks.

Teeing her up!

Miss Marple 2

I bet they have found emails from Stevens to her requesting security.

maryrose

Hils first mistake
Didn't trust her own judgment on Benghazi situation
Westmoreland hitting it out of the park
Hil has to say he didn't have her email address

Janet

Stevens didn't have her personal email.

Blumenthal did. Joe Wilson did.

Jim Eagle

Appaled,

That is old news. The redistricting that has been done now is in court being challenged by the usual leftist organizations like Common Cuase, Legue of Women Voters et.al. Nothing decided yet especially as it concerns Dan Webster.

BeenThereDoneThat

Hillary: "I can't speak to specifics.. I don't actually recall.

-Uh, uh..well you know, with respect to the specifics, uh, as I've stated before, well there was no credible actionable threats against the Benghazi facility, blah, blah.....I WOULD NOT ever try to make security decisions when I'm 1000 miles away - people on the ground should, the CIA would do that...we had an agreement!"

Good God. She just said her good friend Chris, who kept begging for security over 18 times that we know of, didn't have her email!

Miss Marple 2

How come no one was fired?

Good question!

Janet

These people could email the Secretary of State...but not Ambassador Stevens.

Donald Lococo, architect

Laurie Rubiner, vice president of public policy and advocacy for Planned Parenthood

Rosemarie Howe, Clinton’s interior decorator

Joseph Wilson, Symbion Power advisory board

Jeffrey Farrow, lobbyist for Palau

Lisa Caputo, executive vice president of global marketing and corporate affairs at Citigroup

Terry Duffy, executive director at CME Group
(CME Group Inc. is an American futures company and one of the largest options and futures exchanges. It owns and operates large derivatives and futures exchanges in Chicago and New York City, as well as online trading platforms. Wikipedia)

You know 'Rules of Engagement' have come to mind, but I'm also reminded of 'Present Danger' when Ritter cuts the communication, to the special forces team, in accordance with the deal Cutter made with Cortez, which is supposed to evoke Iran Contra, but it's more like the Bay of Pigs,

Algonquin

"I want to do some math with you..."

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Why affirmative action hurts those it's supposed to help and has produced fewer black scientists, doctors and engineers than would have occurred without it.

Miss Marple 2

Over 600 requests for increased security.

Blumenthal emails reached your desk, why didn't any of these?

Janet

Pompeo (R) - He's doing great!

Security requests didn't reach her..but Blumenthal's emails made it to your desk.

Algonquin

"That's a special friend"...

Algonquin

Janet

Oh, yep.

Janet

This guy is doing great.

Janet

Congressman Mike Pompeo | Fourth District of Kansas (R).

Bravo!

maryrose

Telegrams must be received and signed by Secretary

maryrose

Doesn't read all telegrams

Algonquin

Reading Hillary's face and body language...


Woah---State Department was meeting on the ground in Benghazi--with al Qaeda just hours before the attack?

Janet

Now...Sanchez(D) - just a tee up to let Hillary pontificate.

Miss Marple 2

I am very pleased with the Republican performance so far.

Algonquin

Did you all catch that?

What the hell?

GMax

Quinny out with a new Iowa poll

Carson up pretty big on Trump. 8%. Its even worse when you look at likely caucus goers. Remember Iowans must trudge trough the cold dark night to caucus meetings to be heard in the primary.

Looks like the three tickets out of Iowa are most likely to be Carson, Trump and Cruz. New Hampshire will be friendly country for Trump I would think. Wonder what happens to Donald, if his frontrunner status takes a hit at the waterline?

narciso

she's considered among the dimmer lights in the California delegation,

Algonquin

The end of Pompeo's questioning....holy cripes.

Janet

Shows clip of Andrea Mitchell attacking Pompeo.

Again goes to WaPo to discredit Pompeo.
So the Dems rely AGAIN on the WaPo.

Do the Dems have any questions? They don't care at all about what happened?

Miss Marple 2

Really, we use an Andrea Mitchell tape, a Washington Post Pinnochio, and 2 Tweets?

BeenThereDoneThat

The Democrats are focusing only on questioning and comments specifically tailored for soundbites - Hillary will look angelic yet tough for TV newscasts later today. The LIV's will eat it up and ask for more.

Algonquin

We had State staffers at Benghazi meeting with a rebel leader 24or 48 hours before the attack--to try to get (extra security) and one of them was a known al Qaeda fighter ?

And then there was a cable from Stevens...saying something to the same effect.

maryrose

Jordan lays it out
Says Hil said it was a video

narciso

Bin Qumu, tell me they were not trying get approval by the guy who staged the attack, frabjous joy,

Algonquin

narciso

When the transcript comes out for this--the end section of Pompeo's questioning would be the thing to focus on,--holy hell.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Wretchard's latest; the battle for Aleppo.

Al-Arabiya suggested the Russians were seeking to shape the composition of the anti-Assad rebel alliance by going easy on ISIS while wiping out the FSA. In fact, they suggested the FSA might even be under attack not only from the Russians, but ISIS as well. By removing the last of the “moderate rebels” from the board, the Syrian situation would effectively become insoluble from the Western point of view, a choice between two evils.

Threadkiller

Are those three emails Jordan referenced from Hil's personal account?

Chris Stevens doesn't use her email account bu the Egyptian clown does?

Hound dog meets hambone.

Threadkiller

Who is the "Cummins in drag" broad over Hil's shoulder?

She got a kick out of the book sales pitch.

This is why I never disparaged Jason Matera for his asking the cold bitch to sign his copy of her book to Chris Stevens.

Threadkiller

lyle

OT but hilarious headline:

http://takimag.com/article/meet_prime_minister_zoolander_kathy_shaidle

Zoolander is perfect!

Janet

Schiff (D) saying reports have already been done.
What do the Dems NOT GET about the previous reports not having all the info?

Janet

Does this joker have any questions for Hillary?

maryrose

Doesn't fit your narrative
Clinton speak alert!

Janet

FACT. This guy is getting on my nerves.

Algonquin

Oh gawd, looks like she was trying to work up a tesr there for a minute.

maryrose

Schiff. talk summarizing before end of hearing
Nothing to see here

BeenThereDoneThat

Democrats are showing themselves to be hideous liars and deceivers throughout this hearing. Truth is anathema to them - it must be avoided at all costs, and those who persist in attempting to get Hillary to answer questions honestly must be undermined and smeared.

It's time to resuscitate the word 'wicked' and use it accordingly.

Algonquin

Work up a *tear*

Algonquin

Oh gawd she can't get the tears yet...FACT!

maryrose

Jordan's email quotes powerful
Political comments spot on

Miss Marple 2

Oh, she's using her soft and heart-felt voice, now.

I think Gowdy questions her next.

matt

How many pages of e mails were turned over? What was in them? What can be traced as missing? How do they bear on Benghazi?

Threadkiller

Shelia Jackson is behind Hil's right shoulder but there was a lady over her left shoulder that looked kinda like the Brazil chick from PBS.

She is wearing pink. Who is she?

clarice

Not watching. Have the live feed on as I do some work around the house..I don't think she's done badly I'm sorry to day--she was given softball questions which allowed her repeatedly to play poor little old (lady).

maryrose

Now she's whining about partisanship
Excuses and faux outrage

Miss Marple 2

Apparently someone has coached her on how to speak in this fake concern effort.

I wonder if it was Justin Trudeau.

Janet

What do we need to do better? - Hillary

Get rid of YOU.

Threadkiller

The black lady with the grayish hair. Who is she?

Miss Marple 2

Don't know, TK. Not Donna Brazile, though. She has short hair.

Miss Marple 2

Gowdy has caught her in a lie. She's trying to weasel out of it.

GMax

Not watching, wont watch. But Cheryl Mills is black and she is likely hovering close by Despicable She

Miss Marple 2

Sidney didn't write the emails?

She passed on information and she didn't know the source?

Algonquin

Hillary says in order to assess the credibility of intelligence you DON'T consider the source.

Cecil Turner

And there we have it. The GOPe would rather make the compromises that satisfy Dems than the conservatives in their own party.

I strongly suspect they'd prefer to compromise with the FC. However, if no compromise will satisfy the conservatives in their own party, yes, they'll look for votes elsewhere. And this just in: water is still wet.

Threadkiller

You can see the lady in the full size image.

clarice

Well, Gowdy is turning this dog and pony show around.

Threadkiller

Not Mills, GMax.

Thanks.

Jane

She seems to be pretending to fall asleep in front of Trey.

Threadkiller

I would like a compromise to be met on incandescent light bulbs that I would use.

Jane

Jail Elijah Cummings today.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Tammy Bruce: Why is Rodham, an allegedly strong woman, always waiting for a man to tell her what to do?

Threadkiller

There wouldn't be this chaos if Cantor was still around.

Algonquin

Dear Elijah if Hillary co-operated and if she did not comingle professional and classified materials on a variety of personal email venues which she tried to keep private--then the investigation would not have taken so long and would have cost less.

maryrose

Gowdy is a champion
Two on one and Gowdy wins

Beasts of England

Cummings is certainly doing a fine job of representing his constituents in Maryland. Schieff is doing a little bit better, but Gowdy has all those idiots out-gunned by a furlong.

Beasts of England

So Cummings really complained about the $4.7M cost of the committee? Yeah, that's the cost driver in our federal budget...

Threadkiller

Huma and Trey's assistant have Houndstooth patterns on.

What gives?

narciso

so it was Bin Qumu or Bukatef who bailed at the sound of gunfire, and got an Ambassadorship to Mali,

Captain Hate on the iPad

Is there any wonder that Cummings represents a completely lawless shithole like Crackimore?

narciso

his February 17th Martyr's brigade,

lyle

Has Hilligula broken down in tears from all the meanness from all those mean...MEN??

clarice

$4.7 million? That's about the cost of one Obama golf game.

lyle

Doesn't the gubmint spend ~$8B every hour or so? Can Cummings even compute what fraction $4.7M is of that?

Beasts of England

It certainly wouldn't pay the Marine One operating costs taking him too and from the golf course each year...

James D

I strongly suspect they'd prefer to compromise with the FC. However, if no compromise will satisfy the conservatives in their own party, yes, they'll look for votes elsewhere. And this just in: water is still wet.

I can't believe that anymore.

And to the extent that the conservatives are unwilling to compromise, I suspect it's because they're simply tired of being lied to, and tired of watching the disastrous results of compromise with the left.

The GOP leadership has squandered any benefit of the doubt, and if they want to know why, they can start looking in the damn mirror.
