Trump: Hillary Is a Liar — ‘She Lies Like Crazy About Everything’

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” while responding to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton saying in the debate last night that he is “becoming ISIS’s best recruiter,” Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump declared that to be “just another Hillary lie.”

Trump said, “Nobody has been able to back that up. It’s nonsense. Just another Hillary lie. She lies like crazy about everything. Whether it’s trips where she was being gunned down in a helicopter or an airplane, she’s a liar and everybody knows that. But she just made this up in thin air.”

He continued, “I think my words represent toughness and strength. Hillary’s not strength. Hillary’s weak, frankly, she’s got no stamina, she’s got nothing….she couldn’t even get back on the stage. Nobody even knows what happened to her. It’s like she went home and went to sleep….She couldn’t get back on the stage last night I’ll tell you why. Because we need a president with great strength and stamina and Hillary doesn’t have that. We can not have another bad president like we have right now. We need a president with tremendous intelligence, smarts, cunning, strength, and stamina.”

He added, “She may have traveled a lot but she didn’t do the job because the entire world blew up around her. So she wasted a lot of time and energy and money and frankly she wasted a lot of lives because her policies were disaster for the world. The Middle East has blown up around her. Her decisions were horrible. and hundreds of thousands of people have been killed because of her faulty decisions.”

I Don’t Believe Hillary Clinton

67

I don’t believe Hillary Rodham Clinton when she says—as she did at a brief news conference on Tuesday—that she has no control over the release of her State Department email. “They’re not mine. They belong to the State Department.”

I don’t believe her because a person’s actions are more revealing than words: She kept her government email on a secret server and, only under pressure from Congress, returned less than half of them to the State Department. She deleted the rest. She considered them hers.

I don’t believe her when she says, “I want those emails out. Nobody has a bigger interest in those being released than I do.”

I don’t believe her because I’ve covered the Clintons since the 1980s and know how dedicated they are to what former Clinton spokesman Mike McCurry called “telling the truth slowly.” The fact is that she would rather delay the document dump until early 2016—and then have the email released on a single day to overwhelm the media and allow her to declare herself exonerated. That was her strategic choice, Clinton advisers confirmed for me, until a federal judge ordered the State Department on Tuesday to release the email in stages.

I don’t believe her answer to this question: Is there a conflict of interest in accepting huge speaking fees from special interests seeking government action? “No,” she replied.

I don’t believe her because I saw how hard Clinton and her husband, then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton, worked to pass the state’s first sweeping ethics initiative. I don’t believe her because I’ve heard Clinton and her husband rail against GOP politicians who were guilty of less-obvious conflicts of interest. I don’t believe her because there have been far too many credible news reports about the blurring of lines between family finances, the family foundation, and her political and government interests.

I believe the public has a right to know whether any of the deleted email involved correspondence about the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Foundation or its donors. I believe she’s getting bad advice: The hide-and-attack tactics of the 1990s won’t work as well—if at all—in a post-Internet era that honors transparency, authenticity, and accountability.

I believe she wants us to take her at her word, but we can’t—not even those people like me who’ve known the Clintons long enough to respect their service and appreciate their many virtues. It hurts to witness the self-inflicted wounds and hemorrhaging of her credibility. But this is no time for sentimentality.

Blind faith doesn’t get you elected president.

I do believe she’s right about one thing. “I made a mistake,” Clinton said about her Senate vote to authorize war against Iraq. “Plain and simple.

House Benghazi Committee Calls On Hillary Rodham Clinton To Testify

Hillary Rodham Clinton

Hillary Rodham Clinton

The chairman of a House committee investigating the 2012 attacks on Americans in Benghazi, Libya, has called former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to testify next month, setting up a high-profile showdown over Clinton’s use of a private email account and server while she was secretary of state.

Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina says he wants Clinton to testify the week of May 18 and again before June 18. The first hearing would focus on Clinton’s use of private emails; the second on the September 2012 attacks that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.

Gowdy’s action comes a day after the GOP-led panel signaled its final report could slip to next year, just months before the presidential election. Clinton is the leading Democratic candidate.

Hillary Clinton pokes fracking monster in conservation speech

Hillary Rodham Clinton

Possible presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has continued to distance herself from the Obama administration with a mild criticism of “fracking”, the process that has attracted the wrath of Americans across the country.

Without climbing too far out on a political limb and alienating both sides, Clinton expressed restrained concern about the fracking boom in a speech to the League of Conservation Voters in New York on Monday.

“I know many of us have serious concerns with the risks associated with the rapidly expanding production of natural gas,” Clinton told the crowd.

“Methane leaks in the production and transportation of natural gas pose a particularly troubling threat so it is crucial we put in place smart regulations and enforce them – including deciding not to drill when the risks to local communities, landscapes and ecosystems are just too high.”

Hillary Clinton has yet to declare she’s running in the 2016 presidential elections, expertly played both sides of the issue by declaring that America has a fracking future, so long as specific environmental standards are adhered to.

“Yes, natural gas can play an important bridge role in the transition to a cleaner, greener economy,” she said.

Clinton managed to steer clear of the $8 billion dollar, 1,179-mile Keystone XL pipeline project that would transport oil from Canada to the US. A controversial bill to approve its construction fell one short of the 60 votes required in the US Senate to send the bill for presidential approval.

Republicans have said they will prioritize pipeline approval when they assume Senate control next year.

Fracking has been linked to groundwater contamination, an increase in earthquakes, extended drought conditions, and a host of health concerns for people and the local environment.

In early November, voters in Denton, Texas approved a ban on fracking while cities in Ohio and California also voted on fracking bans with mixed results. However, local ordinances against fracking run afoul of state laws that allow the process in both Ohio and California. Similar local bans have been passed in states like Colorado, where state officials have worked to overturn them through the legal system.

 

Ex- aide claims Bill Clinton once admitted Chelsea not his daughter

54557

Bill Clinton’s former aide has claimed that the former president had once admitted that Chelsea Clinton is not his biological daughter.

According to Larry Nichols, the 42nd President of the United States had allegedly said the real father is the former mayor of Little Rock, Ark., Webster Hubbell, who was once a law partner of his wife Hillary Clinton, Radar Online reported.

Nichols said that Bill had admitted that he “shoots blanks” after contracting measles as a kid rendered him sterile, and added that Hubbell was the real father of his daughter, who is currently pregnant with her first child with her husband Marc Mezvinsky.

Earlier, anti-Clinton blogger Robert Morrow had claimed that Hillary had an affair with Hubbell in 1984 at the Governor’s Mansion during Bill’s second term.

These claims will hamper Hillary’s plan to run for president in 2016.

Sources : DOD memo sent after Benghazi attack listed suspects with Al Qaeda ties

A targeting memo sent to the State Department by the Defense Department’s Africa Command two days after the Benghazi attack listed 11 suspects with ties to Al Qaeda and other groups, counter-terrorism and congressional sources confirmed to Fox News.

This is significant because it arrived two days before then-UN ambassador Susan Rice appeared on television shows blaming the assault on an inflammatory video. It also came nearly a day before presidential aide Ben Rhodes sent an email also suggesting the video – and not a policy failure – was to blame for the Sep, 11, 2012 attack that claimed four American lives.

The memo, which was referred to in passing during recent congressional testimony, was drawn up by the Defense Department’s Africa command, known as Africom, and was sent to the State Department as the best available intelligence in the early morning hours of September 14, 2012.

It included the names of 11 suspects, four connected to the Al Qaeda affiliate in North Africa known as AQIM, and seven connected to Ansar al-Sharia, a group with ties to the terrorist network.

“They knew from the get-go that Al Qaeda was involved in the attack so the idea that the Obama administration didn’t know that early on or they suspected it was something else entirely basically is willful blindness,”said counter-terrorism analyst Thomas Joscelyn of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies.

“You have to look at the facts and what the intelligence says and that intelligence was clear that known Al Qaeda personalities were involved in this attack.”

In her new book, “Hard Choices,” then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton claimed the administration made new information available as soon as it was received.

“Every step of the way, whenever something new was learned, it was quickly shared with Congress and the American people,” she wrote. “There is a difference between getting something wrong, and committing wrong.”

While the contents of the email are stamped classified, an attachment including a flow chart showing the relationship among the suspects, is not classified, according to a leading Republican on the House Government Oversight Committee who has seen the memo and wants the administration to release it.

“This is a document from military intelligence widely distributed to the State Department, the White House, the Pentagon, the intelligence community,”said Rep.Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah.

“This was not buried in the bowels of some email chain. This was a widely distributed document. It demonstrated that Ansar al-Sharia and specifically Al Qaeda were involved in this attack. It should have been something that was put out immediately, not nearly two years after the fact.”

The memo was among some 3,000 documents recently released by the State Department to the oversight committee. With the House Speaker establishing a select committee to investigate Benghazi, all documents from the relevant House committee investigations were handed over.

Asked about the memo, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said she was not familiar with it, adding “We described the perpetrators as terrorists from the beginning, we’ve discussed this fact over and over again of course from the podium and again that hasn’t changed.”

But a review of the State Department transcripts in the first week after the attack shows then-spokeswoman Victoria Nuland resisted the terrorism description, instead telling reporters on Sep.17, 2012 that the government was still investigating.

Asked by a reporter if the administration regarded the attack as “an act of terrorism,” Nuland replied, “I don’t think we know enough. I don’t think we know enough. And we’re going to continue to assess… We’re going to have a full investigation now, and then we’ll be in a better position to put labels on things, okay?”

Hillary Clinton defends Obama on Bergdahl, says ‘it doesn’t matter’ how he was captured

Hillary Rodham Clinton defended President Obama’s decision to trade five Taliban prisoners being held at Guantanamo Bay for U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl, adding that “it doesn’t matter” how Bergdahl fell into Taliban hands.

In her first television interview on her promotional book tour, Clinton, a former secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate, told ABC News anchor Diane Sawyer that Bergdahl should have been rescued regardless of the circumstances surrounding his captivity.

“If you look at what the factors were going into the decision, of course there are competing interests and values,” Clinton told Sawyer. “And one of our values is we bring everybody home off the battlefield the best we can. It doesn’t matter how they ended up in a prisoner of war situation.”

As part of her media blitz to promote her forthcoming memoir, “Hard Choices,” Clinton sat down with Sawyer at Clinton’s Washington home Thursday. The interview will air in a one-hour primetime special on ABC next Monday at 9 p.m., although the network released Clinton’s Bergdahl comments Friday evening.

When Sawyer asked Clinton whether she thought Obama had made “a deal with the devil” by releasing Taliban detainees in exchange for Bergdahl, Clinton responded, “I think this was a very hard choice, which is why I think my book is aptly named.”

The Obama administration has come under fire this week from Republicans and other critics who allege that the government gave up too much to rescue Bergdahl. Critics also have raised questions about Bergdahl’s loyalty and whether he had purposely deserted his post, resulting in his capture.

Sawyer asked Clinton, “It doesn’t matter?”

“It doesn’t matter,” Clinton replied. “We bring our people home.”

In her memoir, Clinton writes about early discussions within the Obama administration over rescuing Bergdahl. She writes that in every discussion, she and other administration officials “demanded” Bergdahl’s release, according to CBS News, which obtained an early copy of Clinton’s book.

But, Clinton adds in the book, “I acknowledged, as I had many times before, that opening the door to negotiations with the Taliban would be hard to swallow for many Americans after so many years of war.”

Shoe thrown at Hillary Clinton during Las Vegas speech (VIDEO)

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ducks after a woman threw an object toward her while she was delivering remarks at the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries conference on April 10, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Former US Secretary of State was nearly hit by a shoe during a speech in Las Vegas Thursday, dodging the object at the last second as an usher escorted a young woman from the audience.

Clinton had only been on the stage at an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting near the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino for moments when an object flew toward her from the crowd. Clinton, also a former New York State senator and First Lady, stepped out of its path and joked, “good thing she didn’t play softball like I did,” as quoted by the Associated Press.

The young woman was not identified, although security personnel at Mandalay Bay told reporters the police had been called and she would likely be arrested.

Considered likely to run as the Democratic candidate for president in 2016, Clinton is touring the country and delivering a series of speeches while at work on a book about her time in the State Department, a term that stretched across the first four years of the Obama administration. She appeared at the Las Vegas conference alongside Steve Wozniak, an Apple co-founder.

Vladimir Putin using Russia’s natural gas as a weapon against Ukraine : Hillary Clinton

Hillary gets an eyeful of Christina Aguileras-weapon

CALGARY — Former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton says Russian President Vladimir Putin is using his country’s energy resources to intimidate his opponents.

Concerns over Ukraine’s financial condition mounted this week after Russian state gas company Gazprom said it was cancelling a substantial discount on natural gas granted to the former satellite country in December. Mr. Putin, meanwhile, noted Ukraine still owes Russia about US$2-billion for gas.

Ms. Clinton told a business audience Thursday Mr. Putin’s incursion in Ukraine follows a pattern of behaviour he established with the invasion of Georgia in 2008.

“Vladimir Putin cherishes a vision of a greater Russia. His goal is to re-Sovietize Russia,” she said to the 2,500 who came to hear her speak in Calgary.

“That means trouble. And that’s why everyone is scrambling to prop up Ukraine … and to try to prevent future escalation.”

Russia’s position on Ukraine’s gas debts is a shift from last year, when Moscow tolerated letting the country pile up unpaid bills. The change in tone came after the ouster of the country’s pro-Russian president, Viktor Yanukovych, by protesters who want closer ties with the European Union.

“One of the principle tools of intimidation that Russia has used is their energy resources — both in the winter of 2006 and then on Jan. 1, 2009, when the giant Russian energy company Gazprom shut off all natural gas exports to Ukraine,” Ms. Clinton said.

“That was a wake-up call and it sent a chill, not only across Ukraine, but indeed across Europe. There are cases when one nation tries to use its energy supply to dominate or intimidate another. Russia’s behaviour toward Ukraine is an obvious example.”

OPSEC to Publish New Report on Hillary Clinton, Benghazi

Inside of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi after the attack on Sept. 11, 2012

OPSEC will release a new report this week that is critical of Hillary Clinton’s role in Benghazi, Reuters reports.

The OPSEC (military slang for “operational security”) report says Clinton made crucial choices during the attack on Benghazi, which enabled the attack.

“The attack on U.S. facilities in Benghazi on September 11th, 2012, actually consisted of three distinct but interconnected phases: an unsupported diplomatic expansion into the city that enabled the attack; an uncoordinated and unresponsive reaction to the attack itself; and a concerted effort after the attack to remain unaccountable,” the report says. “Although a wide range of decisions contributed to each of these individual phases, only one person was responsible for the most critical choices during all three: Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

The report also says the attack was not caused by inadequate information but by inadequate leadership.

According to Reuters:

The group charges Clinton with failing to ask the Pentagon and spy agencies to help U.S. personnel besieged in Benghazi and with not discussing the attack with President Barack Obama until more than six hours after it started. They also say she was not candid in her own accounts of what happened.

The report, entitled “Breach of Duty: Hillary Clinton and Catastrophic Failure in Benghazi,” says that due to a lack of due diligence by Congress, the “full story about Hillary Clinton’s deadly failure of leadership may never be completely told.” It calls for a special congressional investigation of the affair.
