Jane

Great, now I'm really bummed.

Buckeye

Rep. Adam Smith D-Washington can go fuck himself. What a piece of shit.

Algonquin

How long did Tyrone Woods scramble for his life and for the lives of those that were trapped at the Consulate?

But Hillary having to testify with bathroom breaks, is just too much to take.

Paula

Boy, Smith is really giving her a tongue bath!

new lurker

Stephanie, That is the "everpresent" Shelia Jackson Lee!

Algonquin

Buckeye


Seconded.

What is that accent? Ultra snob?

narciso

Hours, probably 'but what difference does it make'

Paula

Sure, Smith, she's there b/c she cares. She really showed how much she cared when she was laughing hysterically while reading the Ambassador' s email where he was trying to figure out how he could protect his life. Hahahohoheehee

Captain Hate on the iPad

Sorry to burst your bubble, Jane. There are probably plenty of good agents but Comey is a weasel and even if he was a stand up guy, NK's favorite Attorney General would smother everything under her fat ass.

Jack is Back!

Trying to catch up but that day, Stevens met with the consular of Turkey before the compound and annex were attacked. Why Turkey and in Benghazi instead of Tripoli.

Simple. Run the MANPADS and other arms through Turkey to the Syrain rebels. If anyone can come up with another reason or explanation I am all ears. Interesting that in all the hearings no one wants to go there.

This is a farce more criminal than Watergate because 4 American's lost their lives for expediency - that being political. Blood? The Democrats on that committee are as complicit as their masters Obama and Clinton.

Paula

I think he missed a spot w/ his tongue.

Algonquin

Sanctimonious with a pound of arrogance.

narciso

Yes the anchorage office of the fbi, comrade eickenrode in dc, probably similar folks in Austin.

narciso

Yes Nixon was a piker, yet we are supposed to wear hairshirts, over him.

Buckeye

Good. Jim Jordan just slapped Adam Smith down.

Algonquin

Actually Rep. Smith sounds like a valley girl auditioning for Anna Wintour.

Cecil Turner

I dunno, I've become convinced that the FBI is independent from the administration. Do you guys disagree?

FBI is part of DoJ. They report to Loretta Lynch.

Ryan is going to be Speaker. Frankly, its likely in my opinion he will be better than Boehner and better than Hastert.

Concur. Ryan is the archetypal fiscal conservative, constructing an actual feasible balanced budget plan that drove the moonbats to collective vapors. I've got a couple differences with him (primarily on immigration), but on balance, he's an impeccable choice. (And let's face it, we're rapidly running out of options.)

On the down side, the speakership's gain is the Ways and Means committee's loss. (And don't kid yourselves, the Dems endorsing him were happy to see him leave the latter, not take over the former.)

Finally, for those contending he's too liberal, you're painting yourselves into a mighty small corner of the electorate.

Captain Hate on the iPad

Watergate wouldn't even crack the top 20 offenses by this administration. It would barely merit a Bag of Dicks Bowl.

Algonquin

Erdogan is a snake.

The Infamous Ignatz

I think Jane meant 'independent' as in they would follow the evidence and do the right thing, regardless of what higher ups at DOJ might do.
She's probably wrong even in that limited way too.

The Infamous Ignatz

Now we know why Shemp was watching ESPN instead of the seahag;

"Olympic freeskier Gus Kenworthy's next bold move — coming out - Allysa Roenigk ESPN"

jimmyk

jimmyk, are you staying close to home for Thanksgiving? If so, I'll be in Brooklyn from Tuesday until Saturday.

I'll be around, Cap'n, so let's try to grab a beer.

Miss Marple

I have no confidence in any branch of government. After the Secret Service was caught going through Chaffetz files, why should I think the FBI would be trustworthy?

The Infamous Ignatz

Say what you want about Allahpundit, he writes a good headline;

"Happy fun times: Hillary fondly remembers Chris Stevens’s sense of humor in trying not to be murdered"

Algonquin

Go Westmoreland!

Miss Marple

I am back on CNN. Greta keeps interrupting to talk about Ryan or to interview those two creeps from the Boston Globe and the Washington Post.

narciso

Stick to Lou dobbs I'd you don't have Fox business, get it' yes the weapons were being funneled out of benghazi via the entisar, into turkey to support certain militias in syria.

Jane

Go Westmoreland

I love him!

Miss Marple

Oh, poor Hillary, this is so long and she must be tired.

I wonder how tired those guys were on the roof of the CIA annex.

Miss Marple

Schindler is a prick.

I thought that the news that she was emailing people that it was a terror attack while she was telling the American people it was the video, is sort of big news.

Miss Marple

Kevin McCarthy, thanks a lot.

Boy am I disgusted.

Jane

I have to change the channel when the democrats are on. It's just sickening.

Stephanie

Shouldn't she affect her southern accent now? Ah ain't in no ways tahred.

I recognize SJL and her three hundred dollar weave, I was referring to the white guy over her right shoulder as she is facing the camera. The ineffectual looking douche.

Jane

BTW there are some people who think there are people in the FBI who will resign if their report is not treated fairly.

Do you guys think that is a joke too?

Miss Marple

I thnk I I'll go get a glass of Scotch.

Algonquin

Miss Marple

Yep.

Tyrone Woods arrived at the Consulate in an effort to save Amb. Stevens at 10:25pm, he died around 5:15 am the next morning.

clarice

I believe the FBI agents assigned to a prosecution work at the direction of the prosecutors so I can't blame them entirely for the Stevens and Libby cases, although some of the agents surely were culpable in both instances. OTOH Comey was a weasel re the extension of the NSA program, waiting until Ashcroft was in the hospital and the day before the reg was due to expire before putting on a show of hysteria in the hospital with Gonzales.

I agree with Cecil about Ryan. And unless you think the Congressional tea partiers are mostly RINOS you might conclude as he and they did that Ryan was the best choice and one that needed to be made sooner rather than later.

Janet

Cummings talking about feeling bad for those that have to come testify...is pretty rich.
Look at how he has treated Catherine Engelbrecht (True the Vote)& what he has put her through.

Look at how conservative groups were treated by the IRS & Cummings covering for them.

Stephanie

And you are excused iding the GUY I asked about as SJL. anyone could have mistaken her for an ineffectual male douche.

Jane

This is a great question - "you didn't know how long the attack was going to last"

She is flabbergasted and lying thru her teeth.

Buckeye

I will concede this. The bitch is one smooth liar.

new lurker

Al and Jane, I also LOVE Westmoreland and love that he is from Georgia which is where I live and have for many years.

clarice

https://reason.com/archives/2013/05/09/benghazi-hall-of-shame/

timeline with names of all those officials who peddled the video made them do it.

The Infamous Ignatz

No, she's only smooth on stuff she's practiced.
Bent willy is a pretty decent liar at all times.
Extemporaneous lies are her downfall. She's kind of in her element here.

The Infamous Ignatz

Despite disagreeing with Ryan in some areas I expect him to be a large improvement over Boehner....oh, wait...what's that?...sorry, gotta go...Lucy wants me to go kick the ol pigskin around again.

narciso

Robert Ford should be glad he resigned when he did, he would have suffered Steven's fate.

The pattern Belmont noticed re events in syria, is not new it's how volodya did business in the caucasus.

Algonquin

New lurker

You do not fool the Southern Man.

The Infamous Ignatz

I know this is a momentous day and all but a question just occurred to me at the dryer; why is most lint blue-grey?

narciso

His vympel and other units destroyed all levels of Chechen political structure till it was down to kadyrov his tool and umarov's emirate.

MarkO

She lied about the video over the bodies of the dead heroes. She did that, like the Watergate cover up, to save a Presidential election. She's a co-conspirator in election fraud.

She was a bumbling, incompetent, unknowing Secretary of State with regard to her "dear friend" the Ambassador. Sidney had her email, Stephens did not.

That such a person could become President of the US is alarming, signaling impending Doom.

The MSM has let slip the mask of objectivity. The battle is on. Whom do we have? Let it not be a namby-pampy moderate on the theory that we have to attract independents. The independents need to be converted.

Not since Watergate has the issue been so clear.

Algonquin

Oh gawd....

Miss Marple

Ignatz, I think it is made of all of the dissolved missing socks.

Hillaysudny gets a coughing attack, no doubt to delay questioning and gain sympathy.

The Infamous Ignatz

Paul Mirengoff;
Ryan’s statement of intent illustrates why he likely will be a bad Speaker, and possibly a disastrous one.

new lurker

MM, It is obvious, isn't it? At least to me as a conservative--maybe not to the LIVs

Miss Marple

I still want to know Jarrett's role in this.

Obama's I know.

👳🏾

narciso

Yes schindler more than a bit of a tool, but he often has good foreign intelligence links.

No one died related to watergate, therein lies the difference.

Miss Marple

No transcript on the ARB.

How convenient.

Buckeye

Iggy

I hope you are right.

If the Republicans are smart enough (big if) to hammer her from all sides during the campaign, they just might trip her up.

Her handlers can't coach her on every possible subject, not enough hours in left in her miserable life.

narciso

Secrets lie dormant for long periods of time, Edward Wilson went to jail for many years, because we supposedly a rogue company man who sold weapons to quadaffi. Years later we discover he was doing this on their orders, not inspire of them.

narciso

He was the victim of another rogue prosecutor, Larry barvella, who later went to work for bccI.

Miss Marple

The mask is cracking and her contempt for the committee is showing on her face.

narciso

Wilson was the excuse that adultery of the heart@captain hate, seized on to purge the company, in the Halloween massacre.

Jack is Back!

I agree with clarice. There are some dedicated FBI agents. I know because I had to interact with them in DC back in the day on a certain issue. Most of the ones I knew are apolitical and committed to finding facts supported by evidence, unimpeachable evidence. That is why the FBI rearely brings politically motivated indictments that are transparently a set up.

Those agents looking at Hillary are not impressed by this testimony and in fact are taking copious notes. This may have been Gowdy's strategy all along. Notice how he had his panel take different areas of questioning in order to tee up Jordan, sort of out of the blue? Then have slo taling Westmoreland ask simple stuff that she had to stumble over. Or how about the lady from Indiana. My favorite because she looked politically like Hillary but with a sharper reference point to what the hell was going on.

Peter Rosko from illinois was pretty focused on her owning the whole damn thing from day one. The excuse of Obama calling the shots doesn't cut it because everyone knows he is the laziest assed POTUS ever. She owns Benghazi and Libya. Take credit Hillary and ask for forgiveness.

Stephanie

Is she done? Will she be back? Someone changed the channel to a 2-4 v 2-4 football game...

narciso

Yes one usually had second chair, but third and forth. Some though roskam's presentation was too slow a pace.

Miss Marple

Jack,

Kelly is giving an excellent review, for those who missed it.

You are so right about how the questioning was structured.

Smoking gun on video stuff, according to guy on Fox.

Stephanie

Stupid question..

Why would Hillary tell the Egyptian guy that the video had nothing to do with it if the video at that time only had about 40 views on Youtube and he probably had no idea the video existed? Why would he care? It's like a non sequitur.

BeenThereDoneThat

It's rather depressing witnessing how our government has become utterly corrupt. I grew up admiring our state officials and federal representatives. Whoever was president through the years always had my respect.

Now, I watch live performances transmitted from our nation's Capitol as Democrats and Hillary Clinton herself boldly lie to my face - without a smidgen of shame or remorse.

Stephanie

Hillary testified that she asked the DD to deploy all assets, but they testified that they were waiting on state to ask for help and they didn't.

Why was that not followed up?

Jack is Back!

Steph,

Pre-emption.

Sue

She said they didn't have time to get help there. Did they try? Did they know it was going to end when it did? What if lasted 24 hours?

Jane on Ipad

Narc, did you have a good birthday?

narciso

As previous seem on ncis, the Egyptian an sar, who sent fighters to benghazi, from their camps in eastern libya, had provoked the first set of disturbances earlier that day, the beginning of what I called the shawwal offensive, which would days later in Tunis.

Sue

At my exercise class I mentioned the hearings on Benghazi. No one knew what I was talking about.

narciso

Yes, I had very good Chinese from a local place.

Jack is Back!

Welll then, 生日快樂 narciso.

Buckeye

Sue, of course they don't.

Bet they know the Donald wants to send illegals packing.

Mother Tongue.

Many compleanos more, n.

I was amused today to find 'camarilla' is a perfectly fine English word, used in volume about the Glorious Revolution of 1688 by Maurice Ashley. Embarrassed to say I had already read the book several years ago.

Boom!

narciso

Thanks all.

Now who wants to feed too bin to the badgers, I know it's harsh on the badgers I mean.

narciso

Every one uses junta or clique, besides it's more illiterative.

Jack is Back!

Off to bed. BTW, read 4 more chapters of How to Bag a RINO. Cannot recommend it more. What a terrific read about today's pollitics and how to get conservative, ethical leaders elected. If you want inspiration that the world has not ended or that DOOM is our only future. Read it.

This is not a paid public service announcement on behalf of tonto and Harry but it should be.

Miss Marple

Buckeye,

Exactly, which is why Trump has been successful so far.

I figure only about 10% of the people even watched these hearings, and a smaller proportion understood them.

To me, the value is confirming that we were correct about how they lied about the video.

Also, I am confirmed in my belief that Hillary cannot administer a cabinet department, let alone the entire government, either she is a liar or she is incompetent.

MaryD

Howabout both, Miss M?

Stephanie

She said they didn't have time to get help there. Did they try? Did they know it was going to end when it did? What if lasted 24 hours?

She also testified that they were worried that it was going to spread and go on for days. Why not move any assets then for preventative purposes? She acts like they were going to watch a contagion and then react not cut off the contagion before it could spread.

Miss Marple

MaryD,

Actually, you are right, it's both.

However, I like to make the democrats choose.

Danger, Will Robinson.

In a closet, breathing together, hot-boxing mischief.

Ot, there's a study, we may be among the newest planets, hence the drake equation will be likely yield much smaller planets.

More on the Secca rules that the republican chick was on about..

Buckeye

MM

She is a liar, no doubt.

I don't think she is as incompetent as she is self-absorbed, enough so that her attention is focused on feathering her nest, not doing her job.

Miss Marple

Hmmm. New movie.

"13Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi."

narciso

Yes they have some interesting casting, and the script is by chuck Hogan who wrote the town, among others.

Maybe krasinski is trying to make amends for promise land.

narciso

And another cast member was in fair game, poor fellow no one saw it.

narciso

Meanwhile the Islamist did bupkis in the local Egyptian elections.

narciso

Via the clarion project.

Pagar a bacon, ham and sausage supporter

"Can not administer a cabinet"
IMO, she could not successfully administer a school crossing guard dept that had only one crossing.

narciso

Meanwhile team hafterseems to be the ones getting it done in benghazi and elsewhere, of course the brotherhood is trying to muck that up

narciso

He's the former confidant of muammar that has taken the initiative, to the distress of David 'abbott' Kirkpatrick.

Cecil Turner

Paul Mirengoff;
Ryan’s statement of intent illustrates why he likely will be a bad Speaker, and possibly a disastrous one.

He said "endorse" and they only voted to approve him by "supermajority"! There's a tell. But at least we got something to the President's desk that he'd veto. So we got that going for us.

At some point, we might want to ask ourselves if we're taking the ideological purity thing a bit too far. For the record, I don't have any problem sending the President a bill he'll veto . . . but is that really a goal?

narciso

Of course since making problems more cramuleny is his thing, zaphod is considering banruptcy for buerto Rico.
