    This list of some of Crooked Hillary Clinton’s biggest lies was compiled by the staff of a great website. 1) "G**d*mn it . . . You bastard . . . It's your f**king fault." Said to President Bill Clinton after some bad news was received regarding the Whitewater investigation. Source: "Hillary in Her Own Words," Whistleblower, May 2008, page 25. 2) "Wouldn't it be hysterical if someone just happened to remove all the Ws from the computer keyboards?" A remark made on the First Lady's final evening in the White House. The next day many White House computer keyboards...

    Coach is Right ^ | 6/14/15 | George Spelvin
    Was Madam Secretary in her cups when she exclaimed, “What difference…does it make?” Her testimony in front of the Congressional hearing on Benghazi forever will be characterized by this appalling utterance in the face of the death of an American Ambassador and three brave US warriors in a war on terror which, thanks to Hillary and her kind, we are now losing. Was substance abuse her real problem in that grotesque lack of sympathy for her own station chief? A GLOBE story reports that Hillary Clinton, now the Democrats’ only Presidential Campaigner in Chief, has had drunken blackouts! Reportedly, she...

    According to the article, a visitor to Nantucket took a picture of John Kerry riding a little pink girl's bike. If this turns out to be real and not photoshopped, could we ask for a more humiliating and pathetic Secretary of State?

    Today, at a joint press conference between Barack Obama and Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski in Warsaw, Secretary of State John Kerry pulled the old "dad on the couch" move, testing the limits between what he called "a really long blink" and what looked more like a very short nap. The tell is always in the jerk back to wake up. Twitter: Brian Rie$ ✔ @moneyries Secretary of State @JohnKerry taking a power nap in Warsaw (in his defense...long flight!)

    This column was co-authored by Bob MorrisonSen. John Kerry has a long and dubious record in foreign policy. In the 1970's, he testified against his fellow Vietnam War veterans before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He charged that they were violating the Geneva Conventions every day in Vietnam. Some POWs were outraged at Kerry's disloyal statements. They said they had been tortured by their Communist captors trying to force them to make such untrue statements. Worse, Kerry went to Paris in 1971. There, he met with North Vietnamese Communists. We need to see all his notes from those meetings....

    Republicans are 'not giving up' on BenghaziBy Julian Pecquet - 12/15/12 03:24 PM ET Republican lawmakers are vowing to keep pressing the administration on Benghazi despite Susan Rice’s decision to drop her bid to become secretary of State. “We'll continue to seek answers,” a Republican Senate aide told The Hill. “We're not giving up on it.” Rice’s decision to step aside averted a contentious confirmation fight with Republican senators that might have pointed to an end to the political battle over the U.S. consulate attack. The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations had become the flash-point for criticism since describing...

Ambassador Susan Rice in the role of defending the administration's narrative and Sen. John Kerry(D-MA) promising tough congressional oversight while giving the State Department room to conduct its own investigation. As the controversy over the administration's handling of the issue grows,Rice's comments on the Sept. 11 assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi are coming under increasing attack. Her insistence on a number of Sunday talk shows Sept. 16 that,according to the best information available at the...

    When Joseph Stalin said, "The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The People who count the votes decide everything," he pointed the way for the Democrat takeover of our electoral process! Communists and socialists in America now have their marching orders to manipulate how our votes are counted by taking over Offices throughout our country. After the Bush Kerry 2004 election, " the idea for the Secretary of State Project (SOSP) germinated when the group's Democrat founders blamed Kerry's defeat on then Ohio Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell, a Republican who had ruled that Ohio would not count provisional...

    The Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday, in a near-unanimous vote, recommended the confirmation of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) as the next secretary of state. The panel voted 16-1 to support Clinton. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), who had raised conflict-of-interest concerns about President Bill Clinton’s charitable foundation during the former first lady’s confirmation hearing on Tuesday, was the lone dissenting vote. Chairman John Kerry (D-Mass.) said Clinton did “an outstanding job” at Tuesday’s hearing, and expressed confidence that she would give the concerns voiced by Vitter “full consideration.” Clinton also received praise from Republicans Thursday, such as from Sen....
