    Protesters gathered at the site of a Hillary Clinton event in San Diego. The group included Pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith who was one of four Americans killed in a terrorist attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. Smith says she holds Clinton accountable for what happened to her son. "They abandoned my son," she said. "And that's exactly what it was, an abandonment. They abandoned the guys on the roof top also. Please everybody, don't let Hillary be president. Don't let Hillary be president, whatever you do!"

We know who and what Romney is. It's no secret. In his past he was intentionally to the left of Ted Kennedy. He campaigned for Roe v Wade as settled law that should be preserved and sustained and he delivered liberal activist judges to do just that. He campaigned on the platform that abortion should be safe and legal in America and he delivered taxpayer funded abortion in Massachusetts to make it so....

    A CIA Libya Station Chief has admitted that the government agency has lied about Libya, as the Benghazi protest never took place. Before the Benghazi news buzzed around the world, the station chief for the CIA reported to his superiors located in Washington that no type of spontaneous protest ever happened. In a deliberate attempt to not just lie to the American people, but others across the globe Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and UN Ambassador Susan Rice told the bluff of the century. These political leaders announced to the public that a terrorist attack happening on a Benghazi diplomatic assignment...

    American personnel on the ground in Benghazi the night of the 2012 terror attack are outraged after learning that the CIA's inspector general never conducted an investigation into what happened -- despite two CIA workers being killed in the attack and despite at least two complaints being filed by CIA employees. Former Ambassador Chris Stevens, another State official and two ex-Navy SEALs working for the CIA were killed in that attack. Many in the agency were told, or were under the impression, that an investigation was in the works, but that is not the case. One person close to the...

    If former CIA Director David Petraeus and his ex-deputy Michael Morell are recalled to testify on Benghazi, they can expect hard questions about the mortar attack on the CIA annex which killed two former Navy SEALs. Republican Mike Rogers, chairman of the powerful House Intelligence Committee, is weighing whether to recall one or both of those officials over their Benghazi congressional testimony. Rogers said the evidence suggests a highly skilled team carried out the mortar strike. Fox News has confirmed five rounds were fired in under a minute, with three hitting the annex roof -- a target roughly the size...

    A new documentary about Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney premiered Friday night at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah. The film, "Mitt," is an extraordinarily intimate look at the former Massachusetts governor as he ran for president twice, in 2008 and 2012. Director Greg Whiteley had impressed Romney with his 2005 documentary "New York Doll," which brilliantly chronicled a broken-down rock musician's conversion to Mormonism, and for the new film, Romney gave Whiteley unprecedented freedom to record behind-the-scenes moments as the candidate and his family endured the trials of two presidential campaigns..... the old lack of confidence came out again...

    U.S. President Barack Obama never considered the idea of dropping Vice President Joe Biden from his 2012 re-election team and replacing him with Hillary Clinton, the White House said on Friday. “Double Down,” a new book on the 2012 campaign, says Obama’s top aides considered the notion but decided not to pursue it because it did not materially improve Obama’s odds. White House spokesman Jay Carney, pressed on the issue at his daily news briefing, did not deny that such an idea was floated within Obama’s re-election campaign. …

The men, described by sources as former Navy SEALs, former Army Special Forces and former Marines, were under contract to guard CIA agents on the ground there. The security officers were among those who responded when Stevens' compound was attacked on the night of September 11, 2012.

But, in August, Bruning’s luck began to change. Nebraska’s attorney general since 2003 found himself on a growing list of politicians who have said something offensive and had the misfortune to have it caught on camera. In Bruning’s case, he compared welfare recipients to raccoons. In the audience was a tracker recording audio and video of the speech for an upstart political-research group called American Bridge 21st Century, a fledgling group out to collect...

When Washington told Cincinnati IRS employees to “hold” other tea party cases while officials in Washington scrutinized early “test cases” concerning the group, they did it. When Washington told them to assign a tea party case coordinator, they obliged. Employees also told investigators that the IRS chief counsel’s office was not, as the American people were first led to believe, merely...

    Suddenly it is imperative that Congress investigate details surrounding the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens. I've never felt that way before. But Jake Tapper's scoop changed my mind. To be clear, it isn't at all certain that the CIA was secretly funneling Libyan weapons to Syria, long before Congress "lifted its hurdles" on arming Syrian rebels. But if CNN's report is correct, the CIA is at minimum trying to hide something huge from Congress, something that CIA agents might otherwise want to reveal -- itself a reason for Congress to press hard for information. And if speculation about moving...

Viewers who watch Tuesday’s hearing can expect to see the congressional panel — especially its GOP members — draw out dramatic accounts of the worst experiences from the review process. A representative from one of the targeted groups said the review process was “pretty much a proctology exam through your earlobe,” while others complained that their applications had been lost or that the IRS demanded names of board members, copies of meeting minutes and résumés, among other...

I did not subscribe to the landslide (i.e. Dick Morris) but did see a narrow Romney victory! 2) All of the talk about the "hispano" vote.

Did the IG initially underestimate the volume of malfeasance and how long it would take to dig it up? Or are there other, more cynical reasons?Even if the report wasn’t ready, Issa claims the IG had a statutory obligation to keep Congress updated on its findings as they were made. He didn’t. Why not? Issa is referring to part of the Inspector General Act that requires watchdogs to report serious...

    Voter ID didn’t reduce turnout, but the IRS may have. By John Fund The 2012 election season was filled with angry cries of “voter suppression,” almost all of them regarding attempts by states to require voter ID and otherwise improve ballot integrity. Bill Clinton warned that “there has never been — in my lifetime, since we got rid of the poll tax and all the other Jim Crow burdens on voting — the determined effort to limit the franchise that we see today.” Democratic-party chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said “photo-ID laws, we think, are very similar to a poll tax.”

    The Benghazi scandal is easy to understand, and that’s what makes it so dangerous for the White House. Simply, the Obama administration’s narrative — that al-Qaeda was on the run, that Hosni Mubarak had to go, and that the Arab Spring was a good thing — was proven false when four brave Americans were killed. Because the administration was a slave to their own narrative, rather than aggressively fighting al-Qaeda, rather than recognizing the $50 billion investment in Mubarak’s stability, and rather than realizing that the upheaval they sponsored in the Middle East empowered Muslim Brotherhood radicals, they lied repeatedly...

    Last week, Paul Ryan and House Republicans released their budget plan, which combined spending and tax cuts to reach a projected balanced budget by 2022. It was met with skepticism by pundits from the left and center, and even by some on the right. A common refrain was that the GOP hadn’t learned the lessons of 2012, and that it would probably take another losing cycle or two before the party wised up and moved to the middle. The problem is, in a reasonably close election like the last one, there are conflicting signals that make it nearly impossible to...

Both of the elections involved incumbent presidents with approval ratings hovering around or just under 50 percent facing challengers who were rich men from Massachusetts (though one made his money and the other married it).In both cases, the challenger and his campaign seemed confident he was going to win. and had reasonable grounds to believe so.In both elections, the incumbent started running a barrage of negative...

    A top priority of Democrats nationwide is to try to expand early voting even beyond the more than 40-plus million votes that were cast on days other than Election Day in 2012 or by mail. The present system balkanizes and deprives our nation of the unifying value of one nation on Election Day. The Democrats know that their massive use of early voting was a major factor that enabled them to pile up the winning votes to reelect Barack Obama. Obama enthusiastically supports early voting; he urged 10,000 fans at his campaign speech in Urbandale, Iowa to vote right now...

    Exclusive: Pamela Geller traces death of the republic to 2 short words The United States of America was created as an independent nation whose founding ideal was the principle of individual rights. Freedom. Ayn Rand said that “freedom, in a political context, means freedom from government coercion.” America was the first moral government based on individual rights, the nation of the Enlightenment. In this age of Obama, that ideal has been tossed aside for … “free stuff.” I have, for some time, struggled with the new reality: America void of her reason, existing without the reason for her existence, her...
  • Did Kerry violate separation of powers by coaching Obama's 2nd debate Benghazi lie? (vanity)

    Sen. John Kerry is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations responsible for oversight of US State Dept., execution of foreign policy and oversight of diplomatic facilities. But in Oct. 2012, Kerry was also acting as Obama's debate coach when Obama prepared for the 2nd debate, the foreign policy debate at which Romney was expected to grill Obama over the Benghazigate disaster. Did Kerry violate the separation of powers and ignore a conflict of interest in being both Obama's foreign policy debate coach and Chair of the committee? Kerry's committee in the legislative branch is supposed to provide...

    Star Parker urges freedom-lovers to continue fight to restore America Now, suddenly, the tea party is everybody’s whipping boy. Liberals, in the wake of the election, gloat about what they see as liberalism’s return to the mainstream and cheer the end of the Republican “extremists.” And, despite the spin, which never stops in Washington, it is not accidental that four prominent tea-party congressmen have been purged from key committee posts by Speaker John Boehner. So as the Washington “establishment” cozies up to the mindset that a bloated, debt-ridden America can go on just fine as long as there is political...

    PUTTING 2012 UNDER A MICROSCOPE Reflections on the late disaster, a month after November 6… When disaster strikes, it is easy to see only the negatives, and easier still to cry out “All is lost.” Negativity rules the day, all the more so in politics after a national election. But there are lessons to be learned in every defeat, and if we objectively view these election results, we will see a foundation upon which a wise movement can build, to save this country from its current path of destruction. This won’t pretend to be an exhaustive list, but perhaps there...

Rove and Dick Morris, a fellow paid political analyst, have been temporarily banned from appearing on Fox News as the network tries to distance themselves from the two men whose election predictions ended up being so far from the result. New York Magazine's Gabriel Sherman reports that Ailes decided that it is important for Fox News to take a step...

    When Barack Obama was re-elected on November 6, the vast majority of professors across the country cheered and continued to force their liberal ideology on their students. In fact, 96 percent of Ivy League professors who donated to a campaign this election cycle, donated to President Obama. Ivy League educators overwhelmingly supported President Obama with their campaign donations in the presidential election, reinforcing the suspicions of critics who say their bias also shows up in the classroom. Some 96 percent of faculty and staffers at the eight universities who donated wrote their checks to Obama, and at Brown University, just...

    You know you’re in trouble as a nation when the Communist Party USA is openly celebrating the re-election of the president. And that is exactly what is happening in late November 2012. The Stalinists are calling Barack Obama’s win a “victory for the people.” As a former communist (note small c), I can translate that for you. It means a “victory for communism – or, more precisely, a victory for the party.” Just listen to some of the hyperbolic and ecstatic rhetoric: “We meet on the heels of an enormous people’s victory. It was a long and bitterly contested battle...
