NEW YORK – Three members of the Libyan parliament representing tribes that were brutally attacked by Islamic militia both during and after the coup that ousted Moammar Gadhafi charge Hillary Clinton is the “Butcher of Libya.”
The three lawmakers spoke to WND from Libya in a video conference call.
“Libyans accuse that Hillary and her group are behind the terrorist groups in Libya,” said Jaballah Al-Shibani of the now-homeless Tawergha tribe.
On Wednesday, CBS and The New York Times made the point of omitting results from their own poll which show President Obama’s job approval at 40 percent and his approval on foreign policy at only 34 percent, from the newscasts and print newspaper, respectively. CBS This Morning and the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley only mentioned the latest CBS News/New York Times poll in regards to how 57 percent of Americans do not feel as though the President is being tough enough in dealing with the threat posed by the Islamic terrorist group ISIS. At the other end of the spectrum, only 31 percent of those asked said they approved of his handling of ISIS.
The major broadcast networks on Wednesday refused to cover the first hearing held by the House Select Committee on Benghazi to begin assessing what happened in the 2012 attack that left U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, foreign service officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty dead. Between their morning and evening newscasts, the “big three” networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC neglected to offer any stories on the bipartisan hearing chaired by Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), who promised that: “[O]ur fellow citizens deserve all of the facts of what happened before, during, and after the attacks in Benghazi and they deserve an investigative process worthy of the memory of those who died and worthy of the trust of our fellow citizens.”
CNN and MSNBC viewers on Wednesday would have to switch channels if they wanted to watch the first hearing of the House Select Committee on Benghazi. CNN aired a 15-second news brief at the top of the 10 am Eastern hour, mere minutes before the nearly three-hour meeting began, but didn’t cover the proceedings live. MSNBC set aside 12 minutes worth of segments to the event, and sometimes showed split-screen video, but didn’t provide the audio. By contrast, Fox News Channel provided nearly 41 minutes (40 minutes, 51 seconds) of live coverage of the congressional committee’s hearing during the 10 am and 11 amEastern hours.
During the first installment of PBS’s The Roosevelts: An Intimate History on Sunday, historian Clay Jenkinson and former Newsweek editor turned historian Evan Thomas slammed Theodore Roosevelt as a bloodthirsty “imperialist” who promoted the “glorification of war” and built up a “cult” of personality. Speaking on Roosevelt’s command of the Rough Riders during the Spanish-American War, Jenkinson proclaimed: “There’s no question that Roosevelt is an imperialist. Apologists like to try to play this down. But the fact is he’s probably the most significant imperialist in American history.” Jenkinson seemed troubled by Roosevelt’s call for the United States to “take our place in the world’s arena.”
Rosie O’Donnell appeared shocked by the suggestion that Barack Obama “doesn’t love people.” The View co-host on Tuesday sparred with Republican Nicolle Wallace over the President and demonstrated that she’s still obsessed with George W. Bush. After Wallace asserted that Joe Biden has an easier time because “Joe Biden genuinely loves people,” the 9/11 truther sputtered: “So, are you implying that Obama doesn’t?…He doesn’t love people? Oh, wow.”
NBC’s McFadden Reads Hillary Her Own Book: ‘Evidence…Why I Think You Are Actually Running for President’
Hillary Clinton sat down with NBC’s Cynthia McFadden for an interview which aired on NBC Nightly News on Tuesday, June 10 to promote her new book “Hard Choices.” While the NBC reporter brought up sensitive issues such as Benghazi, when the subject turned to Clinton’s potential presidential bid, McFadden proved to be nothing more than a Hillary sycophant. The first question that aired from the interview was McFadden gushing “I know you say you haven’t made up your mind, but I’m going to give you the evidence from your book why I think you actually are running for President.”
After giving Hillary Clinton a chance to clean up her “dead broke” gaffe in the first part of a live interview on Tuesday’s Good Morning America, ABC host Robin Roberts saved all of her softball questions for part two of the exchange later on the broadcast: “You and your husband have very intense schedules, how much quality time – let’s say how many days in the month are you actually able to be together as a family?…You’re going to be a grandmother in the fall. Have you offered any names to Chelsea?” Telling the possible 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, “You’re known for your sense of humor,” Roberts decided to hit Clinton with a “lightening round” of frivolous questions: “Who is your favorite Republican in Congress?…who is the person living that you admire the most?…Politician you’d let babysit your future grandchild?.”
On Tuesday, June 10, the Obama Administration issued a delay that allows 18 states not to implement a portion of ObamaCare’s small business health insurance exchange until 2016. Despite the delay, which was issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, all three network evening news broadcasts ignored the story on Tuesday evening. Rather than finding time to cover the latest ObamaCare delay, the CBS Evening News with Scott Pelleyran a full report on Colorado’s “new cash crop” i.e. marijuana. ABC’s World News With Diane Sawyer decided to run a full segment on swimming with sharks and NBC’s Nightly Newscovered the American Medical Association announcement that cheerleading should be considered a sport.
Charlie Rose and Norah O’Donnell questioned Republican Senator Marco Rubio on Tuesday’s CBS This Morning over the increase in the number of children illegally entering the U.S., and whether immigration reform is going to be revived in Congress. Rose spotlighted that Rubio received “some political pushback” on the immigration issue, and wondered, “When will we see thorough immigration reform?” The PBS veteran also noted that the Florida politician is “a leading critic of the V.A. health system,” but oddly didn’t ask a question about the ongoing scandal. Instead, he ran to Hillary Clinton’s defense on the extent of her responsibility for the security lapses leading up the September 11, 2012 Islamist attack on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya.
On Monday’s NBC Today, fill-in co-host Willie Geist posed an ominous question to viewers: “How would you feel if you saw someone walk into a store or restaurant with a rifle strapped to his or her back?” Teasing an upcoming story on the topic, he proclaimed: “It’s perfectly legal in one state, sparking quite a controversy this morning, we’ll explain.” In the report that followed minutes later, correspondent Kerry Sanders announced: “…in Texas, it is legal to carry a long-barreled rifle, a shotgun, as long as you’re carrying it openly….But when a group of gun enthusiasts and activists began carrying their long guns into places like restaurants and stores, it started a debate that’s raging like a Texas prairie fire.” The headline on screen declared: “Texas Gun Fight; ‘Open Carry’ Movement Sparks Controversy.”
The producers of Netflix’s Orange is the New Black might find themselves targeted by Hillary Clinton’s supporters, after a character used the Democratic politician’s name as an insult in an episode of the newest season of the sex-laced series. Tiffany “Pennsatuckey” Doggett (played by Taryn Manning), an inmate at the women’s prison that is the main setting of the Internet show, confronted fellow prisoner Leanne Taylor for ignoring her. Taylor then blasted her former confidante as a “Hillary Clinton dictator.”
A day after President Obama finally reacted to the Veteran’s Affair scandal after weeks of silence, NBC’s Today could only manage a couple news briefs on the development, totaling forty-seven seconds. Meanwhile, the morning show devoted one minute and nineteen seconds to First Daughter Malia Obama learning to drive this summer. ABC’s Good Morning America at least provided a full report on the VA scandal, but edited out any criticism of Obama. On Wednesday’sWorld News, correspondent Jim Avila included a soundbite from a family member of a veteran who died waiting for care who accused the President of “lying” about the scandal. However, that clip vanished from Avila’s GMA report Thursday morning.
At the top of her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Thursday, host Andrea Mitchell proclaimed: “The Benghazi dozen, five Democrats now agreeing to join seven Republican inquisitors after failing to block the new Benghazi probe. Is it a witch hunt or a truth squad?” In an interview that followed with Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings, Mitchell wondered why Democrats would bother being part of the select committee investigating the scandal: “You had your microphone cut off by [House Oversight Committee Chairman] Daryl Issa….you and others, I think, were against playing a role in what could be, you know, a real witch hunt, according to you….Why even play the game?”
In early May, CBS’s morning and evening newscasts spotlighted congressional Democrats’ vehement opposition to the formation of a select committee to investigate Benghazi, Libya during 10 minutes and 14 seconds of reporting. However, when Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi named five Democrats to the committee on Wednesday, the CBS news programs minimized their coverage of the development. Wednesday’s CBS Evening News set aside 23 seconds to the story, while Norah O’Donnell gave a 14-second news brief on Thursday’s CBS This Morning about the story. CBS’s coverage was overwhelming compared that of ABC and NBC which both ignored Pelosi naming members to the comittee.
CNN President Jeff Zucker snottily sounded off to New York Times TV reporter Bill Carter against any complaining conservatives, proclaiming his network would not be “shamed into” covering Benghazi by those with “temper tantrums” demanding coverage: “We’re not going to be shamed into it by others who have political beliefs that want to try to have temper tantrums to shame other news organizations into covering something,” he said. “If it’s of real news value, we’ll cover it.” But Zucker was “incredibly comfortable” with having no shame over-covering the Malaysian Jet mystery.
Joel McHale, the comedy performer at Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, delivered some zingers at the cable networks, the President and Democrats, but reserved his political invective for Republicans, the only group whose motivations he impugned – specifically, as racists. His very first joke: “Good evening Mr. President — or, as Paul Ryan would call you, another inner city minority taking advantage of the federal government to feed and house your family.” Soon after that one, the host of E’s The Soup and an actor on NBC’s Community, hurled: “E is also home to the Kardashians who, believe it or not, are Republicans. And I know that because they’re always trying to screw black people.”
On Friday, CBS Evening News caught up with its Big Three competitors and reported on the latest developments on the controversy surrounding the September 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya. CBS also finally mentioned its own president’s family connection to a White House official involved in the Obama administration’s handling of the immediate aftermath of the attack. Nancy Cordes gave a full report on how the “the White House released previously unseen e-mails” about the federal government’s response to the terrorist strike, which led to House Speaker John Boehner forming a new select committee to investigate the attack. Scott Pelley also disclosed that “Ben Rhodes, the White House deputy national security advisor mentioned in Nancy’s story, is the brother of CBS News President David Rhodes.”
One day after accusing the press of ignoring the Benghazi scandal in order to protect President Obama,on Thursday’s O’Reilly Factor, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly ripped into the media yet again: “Does it get any worse than that in our democracy?…The Obama administration was completely derelict in the Benghazi terror attack and was dishonest in the aftermath. And the national press doesn’t give a damn? Disgraceful.” O’Reilly cited desperate spinning of the controversy by White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and observed: “While Carney may think the press corps is stupid, he knows the press corps doesn’t care, and that’s why he says these outrageous things. He knows the coverage will be minimal, except on Fox News.”
On Friday, NBC’s Today kicked off its 2014 midterm election coverage by doing a fawning puff piece on former American Idol contestant Clay Aiken running for Congress in North Carolina as a Democrat. Co-host Willie Geist proclaimed: “A race that’s getting a lot of attention. Clay Aiken is used to being at the mercy of the voters. He came in second on American Idol in 2003 and now he’s running for Congress in North Carolina…” In the report that followed, correspondent Kelly O’Donnell touted Aiken on the campaign trail: “When he says hello at Brownie Lou’s restaurant or breaks out a smile for selfies, Clay Aiken is campaigning for a big career change. From pop singer to politician.”
Comedian Don Rickles told David Letterman, on Friday’s Late Show, that “the highlight of my life was doing the Ronald Reagan Inaugural,” the 87-year-old (88 on May 8) recalled of his legendary career. He reminisced about how Frank Sinatra used his clout to overcome opposition to his inclusion by Reagan aides concerned Rickles would “make us all look like jerks.”
ObamaCare contractors ostensibly weren’t the only ones being told to hush up. A new report from Judicial Watch claims, “Days after terrorists attacked the U.S. mission in Benghazi, a State Department official ordered an executive at the security company charged with protecting the special compound not to respond to media inquiries, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch.” Wouldn’t want the truth to get in the way of a pivotal election and Obama’s campaign narrative about Benghazi and al-Qaida.
The Left has done everything in their power to exploit last December’s dreadful massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The only way to prevent these tragic rampages, we’re told, is to tighten gun control. Indeed, several states — notably Colorado and New York — were quick to implement stringent gun laws, but most states have seen through the rhetoric and actually loosened restrictions. The New York Times reports: “About 1,500 state gun bills have been introduced since the Newtown massacre. 178 passed at least one chamber of a state legislature. 109 have become law. In the 12 months since the mass shooting … almost every state has enacted at least one new gun law. Nearly two-thirds of the new laws ease restrictions and expand the rights of gun owners.” (Emphasis added). Finally, some good news.
Don’t drone me in the woods PETA..
And if you do…
Yeah..And then your drone is fair game!!
And just in case…
One would need to worry about this and why not? Why does local and State LEOs need such devices?
How can one separate themselves from what is obviously under their responsibility..Oh..wait..She works for Obama, a master at deflecting blame and responsibility..
On Sunday’s NBC Today, co-host Lester Holt wondered if Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had “successfully separated herself now from this trouble” with the ObamaCare website failure. He further asked: “Is her job safer than it was maybe a week ago?” A somewhat puzzled David Gregory, moderator of Meet the Press, replied: “Well, I think her job may be okay for the moment. But I don’t think she’s separated herself from it….all of these problems really do undercut the potential effectiveness of ObamaCare, whether it can be affordable to insure more and more people. If they don’t achieve that, there are enormous problems….enormous problems for how it works for years to come.”
Appearing as a guest on Friday’s PoliticsNation, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry asserted that Tea Party Republicans “don’t care if it hurts people” when they oppose government programs like ObamaCare. As she discussed with host Al Sharpton whether Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz could be considered a “populist,” Harris-Perry brought up opposition to Medicaid expansion by some Republicans: “So what we do see is not so much populism, but a kind of ideological rigidity that says we don’t care if it hurts people. We are just going to have a very strong and consistent stance that we want government to be so ineffective, so incapable of doing anything that it can’t even help people who need the most help.”
On Sunday’s 60 Minutes, CBS’s Lara Logan bluntly pointed out how the September 11, 2012 Islamist attack on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya “have been overshadowed by misinformation, confusion, and intense partisanship,” Logan turned to an actual eyewitness of the attack, along with two former advisers to deceased Ambassador Chris Stevens – Greg Hicks and a Green Beret officer – to refreshingly outline what actually happened that infamous night. However, the correspondent failed to explicitly mention President Barack Obama or former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her report. She only vaguely noted that “contrary to the White House’s public statements, which were still being made a full week later, it’s now well established that the Americans were attacked by al Qaeda in a well-planned assault.”
Damn, if this Mostly Shit, Nothing But Crap talking worm had a tingle up his leg over Obama, I don’t want to know what he will do in his pants over Hillary ‘Benghazi’ Clinton…
Liberal MSNBC host Chris Matthews, who famously admitted to a “thrill” that Barack Obama sent up his leg, on Friday praised the “girlish” and “playful” Hillary Clinton. The Hardball anchor appeared on Alec Baldwin’s new Friday night show and conceded that he and the potential 2016 candidate “giggle” and “laugh” together. Matthews was talking to Baldwin about gay rights and made one of his customary thought digressions. Even though the host allowed for a “tussle or two” over the years with Clinton, he lauded, “Although when I am with her. I just think she is great as a person. And we giggle, everything, laugh…I hope this doesn’t offend anybody. There is a part of her that is very girlish. She’s still very youthful.”
Showing more concern for President Obama’s popularity than the national security implications of the latest leaks in the NSA spying scandal, on Monday’s NBC Today, chief foreign affairs correspondent Andrea Mitchell lamented: “When he was a candidate, Barack Obama was a rock star in Europe. That was then, this is now. As Europe reacts angrily to news that the U.S. spied on 35 leaders…” Moments later, Mitchell continued to worry: “How did the man who won the Nobel Peace Prize just months into his presidency become the subject of Europe’s scorn?” She denounced the leaks, but not the spying itself: “The White House can thank NSA leaker Edward Snowden, who’s latest revelations have forced President Obama to apologize to France’s President Hollande, Germany’s Chancellor Merkel, as well as current and former leaders in Mexico, and Brazil’s President Rousseff, who even cancelled a state visit to Washington she was so angry.”
