  • Colin Powell: Everything Hillary Touches She Screws Up With Hubris

    Colin Powell attempted to persuade Hillary Clinton and her aides to not use him as a scapegoat for the controversy surrounding her private email server, according to leaked emails hacked from the former secretary of state’s Gmail account. In the emails, which were obtained by The Intercept, Powell wrote to at least one confidant about his repeated warning to Clinton not to blame him for the scandal. “I told her staff three times not to try that gambit. I had to throw a mini tantrum at a Hampton’s party to get their attention. She keeps tripping into these ‘character’ minefields,”...
  • Colin Powell Calls Trump a 'National Disgrace' in Hacked Emails

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell blasted Donald Trump as a "national disgrace" and "international pariah" in a personal email exchange that was leaked online by hackers. Powell, a retired 4-star general and a Republican, confirmed the authenticity of the emails to NBC News. "The hackers have a lot more," he added. The contents of the emails were first reported by Buzzfeed News. It said the messages had been obtained by the website which MSNBC reported is rumored to have ties to Russian intelligence services. Powell called Trump a "national disgrace" and "international pariah" in a June 17 email...

    In other words, the headline should read "Hillary Blames Bush Appointee Colin Powell For DNC Hack, State Department Hack, Clinton Foundation Hack, Email Scandals" ... I mean, that is what she is doing. She is like Lochte, no difference, first telling lies then fake apology scenarios, then blaming someone else meaning blaming her "bros". Both Hillary and Colin make me sick, Hillary is by far the worse of the two Obamanists. But despite the fact that Colin is a tom turkey, he isn't to blame, but she is doing the angle to somehow blame the entire email scandals on Bush...

  • Colin Powell, Wasserman Schultz support Iran nuclear deal

    09/08/2015 8:47:19 AM PDT · by boycott · 28 replies
    President Obama’s Iran nuclear deal on Sunday got some largely unexpected support -- from former Secretary of State Colin Powell and Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The deal, which is expected to receive a vote this week in the Republican-led Congress, has essentially no other GOP support. Still, Obama late last week secured enough support from Senate Democrats to ultimately complete the deal, despite the Republican opposition. Powell, who served in the Republican administration of President George W. Bush, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the international agreement is "a pretty good deal" that would reduce the threat...
  • Colin Powell: ‘Elements’ in GOP ‘Demonize People Who Don’t Look Like the Way They’d Like’

    Appearing on MSNBC, former Secretary of State Colin Powell savaged the Republican Party of which he says he is still a member for catering to “elements” that are overtly hostile to people of other races or nationalities. Powell told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that there are groups within the GOP who “demonize people who don’t look like the way they’d like them to look.” He added that, for this reason, he believes the GOP needs him more than the Democratic Party needs him. He said that even senior-level Republicans continue to make “statements about women” and “minorities” that make the party...

    The American Thnker ^ | August 5, 2013 | Jeannie DeAngelis
    In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State's sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell's besmirching of the Republican Party's "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Creţu. So it's safe to say...

What I think is really going on here is our president, Barack Obama, if you'll note, really never talks about plans and proposals to solve problems.

The Republicans are the enemy. He's not proposing solutions to anything. He's not interested in...

    Washington Barack Obama’s reelection was barely sealed before some international voices began trumpeting how the president’s victory would mean a renewed American focus on foreign policy issues that languished during the campaign. President Obama could now revive the search for a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, international Middle East envoy Tony Blair said. The US will be bolder now in pressing for a resolution of Syria’s deadly and dangerous civil war, some US allies, including Turkish officials, predicted. Have these foreign friends heard of the “fiscal cliff”? (Snip) Mr. Obama will no doubt be looking broadly to

    General Colin Powell said on Wednesday that he supports gay marriage, representing a turning point for the former secretary of state and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. "I have no problem with it," Powell told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in an interview. "In terms of the legal matter of creating a contract between two people that's called marriage, and allowing them to live together with the protection of law, it seems to me is the way we should be moving in this country. And so I support the president's decision."
  • Powell: More Asked of Troops Now than in WWII

    (CBS) There are about 23 million people alive today who've served in the United States armed forces. On this Veteran's Day, the eleventh day of the eleventh month, originally marking the end of WW I, Americans honor all the military men and women who have given so much for our country. Earlier this week, "Early Show" co-anchor Harry Smith met with former Secretary of State and retired Gen. Colin Powell at Arlington National Cemetery. Smith says Powell's "eloquent words about veterans and what they've done for us were truly moving."

    Colin Powell is a Republican. It doesn't bother me as much as it grates on the nerves of a number of movement activists who feel a sense of betrayal. I certainly don't want Republicans like Powell as a leader of the GOP since moderates of his caliber do not embody the best of conservative ideology. But I do believe in not shrinking the party by purging it of RINO/CINO "infiltrators". The real story, however, is not the media sensationalism that wishes to egg on the Powell-Cheney-Rush bickering and GOP uncivil war. NewsBusters points out the real scoop from Powell's Face...

    “I’m a former everything,” Colin Powell jokes as he relaxes in his office in Alexandria, just across the Potomac from Washington. Indeed, he is a former national-security adviser, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and former secretary of state. But before he was a former, he was a first: the first black to serve in any of those roles. And he may also, still, be a future. He turned 70 this year and makes a solid living these days giving speeches and serving on advisory boards, but he does not rule out a return to public service.
