Mrs. Clinton, Do You Think Lying Is OK?

This question is one I’d like to see put before Hillary Clinton and every other person vying for public office.

swearing in

I don’t mean after the election. I mean during the campaign. Lying has become common among our leaders. Mrs. Clinton lied about sniper fire. Her husband lied about not having sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky. Our President repeatedly lied when he told us we could keep our doctors and our health plans. And other things.

Every candidate should be put on the spot and required to take a position on truthfulness. Then, if later caught in a lie, their statement should be thrown back at them.

I see no reason why there should not be a movement to reinstate truth in political discourse.

“Calling her ‘Hillary’ is now ‘sexist’”

no sexism card

Of course. We knew this was coming. It’s pure Alinsky tactics – and the race card has worked for Obama. She doesn’t have to answer for anything. She just whips out her sex card and calls you a bad name.

queen hillary

Now that Hillary is officially in the running, prepare to start hearing the s-word. Don’t like her politics? Sexist! Disagree with her positions? Sexist! Still have issues with Benghazi? Sexist!
The s-bomb will be dropping left and right over the next 18 months during an election season that’s bound to witness a violent collision of culture and politics. Obama’s exit will end the age of racial politics just in time for Hillary to usher in the era of gender politics.
But for many of her female supporters, the gender war has already begun, and the first big battle is being fought over her name.
You see, if you do what I just did and call her “Hillary,” that makes you sexist now, too.”

Hillary Clinton’s ‘Rules For Radicals Reporters’

First, a quote from her. She is proud of what she accomplished as Secretary of State.

(?)

The Clinton Rules for meeting candidate Clinton are coming to light. After recent events in Iowa some reporters were able to talk to the limited number of “everyday Americans” who participated in her presidential rollout.

♦ Rule #1. Pre-Approval of your personage is required.

♦ Rule #2. You must sign releases to allow the campaign control over all content while you are present.

♦ Rule #3. All of your electronic devices and cell phones must be turned over to handlers – and they will be returned only at the conclusion of the event.

♦ Rule #4. You will be transported to undisclosed location(s). You will not be informed of your destination until arrival.”

“Cellphones and Cameras Confiscated Before Meeting With Hillary”

Hillary Clinton Twitt_Garc

Iowans had their cellphones and cameras confiscated before getting to meet the Democratic presidential frontrunner, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

“On Thursday, Clinton’s motorcade left the SpringHill Suites for Main Street Cafe, where she met privately with party leaders for about an hour and a half,” reports KETV in Omaha.

“Pottawattamie County Democratic Chairwoman Linda Nelson said the meeting was so private that everyone invited was asked to hand over their cellphones and cameras before taking part.”

Tim McGraw Defends His Decision To Play Benefit For Anti-Gun Group

McGraw doesn’t need to defend his decision. He made it and now he owns it. Gun owners across the country have reacted to his choice in their own ways.

He is not going to change anyone’s mind. He has two choices now: Retirement or a long, slow slide into irrelevance. He does not understand that Progressives will not embrace country music, buy his CD’s, or tickets to his concerts.

It’s interesting reading the comments section of the linked article.

Heh. It is kind of a dumb looking hat.

He has made his bed. It is interesting that Billy Currington bailed as soon as the uproar started.

Tim McGraw

Tim McGraw defended his decision to headline a a concert to benefit a Sandy Hook group after gun advocate groups called the event a “gun control fundraiser.”

“Let me be clear regarding the concert for Sandy Hook given much of the erroneous reporting thus far,” McGraw told FOX411 in a statement. “As a gun owner, I support gun ownership. I also believe that with gun ownership comes the responsibility of education and safety – most certainly when it relates to what we value most, our children. I can’t imagine anyone who disagrees with that.”

Fellow country singer Billy Currington withdrew from the Connecticut show because he’s “never been one to take on controversial issues.”

WSJ: “Hillary and the Liberal Way of Lying”

Stevens is still calling the left ‘Liberals’. Maybe one day he will figure out that they are not liberal. They call themselves ‘Progressives’.

“How the Clintons pioneered the methods by which Obama sold his Iran deal.”

hillary announcing

Brett Stevens in the Wall Street Journal writes:

Sometime in the 1990s I began to understand the Clinton way of lying, and why it was so successful. To you and me, the Clinton lies were statements demonstrably at variance with the truth, and therefore wrong and shameful. But to the initiated they were an invitation to an intoxicating secret knowledge.

What was this knowledge? That the lying was for the greater good, usually to fend off some form of Republican malevolence. What was so intoxicating? That the initiated were smart enough to see through it all. Why be scandalized when they could be amused? Why moralize when they could collude?

It always works. We are hardly a month past Hillary Clinton’s Server-gate press conference, in which she served up whoppers faster than a Burger King burger flipper—lies large and small, venial and potentially criminal, and all of them quickly found out. Emails to Bill, who never emails? The convenience of one device, despite having more than one device?”

“California continuing its quest to brand all men as rapists”

If they pass this law every man in the state will either be subject to legal action or will leave.

California has been on the leading edge of leftist hate for a long time. Nothing is sacred there. And it looks like the feel-good leftists have chosen mass suicide to save the little fishes.

california breaking off

Last year California passed a law that defined nearly all sex on college campuses as rape unless proven otherwise. Now, in addition to making it easier to label someone a rapist for just about every sexual encounter, state legislators want to go further to ensure that accused students’ lives are severely disrupted — if not ruined — by introducing mandatory minimums for their punishment.

The mandatory minimum would be a suspension of two years for students found responsible for sexual assault. But bear in mind that the burden of proof already lies with the accused, thanks to California’s “yes means yes” law. Accusers do not have to provide any proof that that they failed to give consent or were unable to consent due to incapacitation, and now a guilty finding would carry a minimum punishment under this new proposal.

First they made it easier to brand a student a rapist, and now they want to make it easier to ruin that student’s life.”

“Can the president kill Americans?”

“Not legally, but that doesn’t deter him”

obamadrone

This article was written by Judge Andrew Napolitano and published in the Washington Times.

Can the president kill you? The short answer is: yes, but not legally. Yet, President Obama has established a secret process that involves officials from the departments of Justice and Defense, the CIA, and the White House senior staff whereby candidates are proposed for execution, and the collective wisdom of the officials then recommends execution to the president, who then accepts or rejects the recommendation.

If the recommendation is to kill and the president rejects the recommendation, the CIA is directed to arrest the person. If the president accepts the recommendation to kill, then death is ordered. This is not unlike the procedure used in the reign of the monstrous British King Henry VIII, except that the king himself delegated the final say to his chancellor so that he could publicly disavow participation in the government murders.

Mr. Obama does not disavow them; he defends them.”

You really ought to read the rest here. Napolitano is a defender of liberty.

It was staged. The UK Daily Mail tells us that each one of the people at the table was driven to the event by Clinton’s Iowa political director Troy Price. The three people are:

Will Iowa voters give her a pass on this? At least she didn’t have to answer any questions. When question time actually comes she will fall hard.

First Look At Hillary’s ‘Scooby Van’

And watch the slobbering media run after her.

The van is rather disappointing. It’s not very Presidential looking. Rather, it looks like something used for a county commissioner campaign vehicle. Obama did it with more style:

“GOV. BOBBY JINDAL: THE LEFT ARE BULLIES OPPOSED TO ARMED CITIZENS, RELIGIOUS LIBERTY”

bobby-jindal-AP-640x480

The left are bullies. Look what they did in Indiana, when it came to the fight over religious liberty. They are bullies who try to intimidate their opponents. They can’t argue with us–at least they can’t argue with us on the merits of the matter or ideas or even what the Founding Fathers intended–so they just bully.

What’s scary is, they are going to try to bully us out of our Second Amendment rights–but we won’t let them–and they are going to try to bully us out of religious liberty rights, and we mustn’t let them.”

Rand Paul Is Selling Hillary’s Hard Drives

This is going to be a fun campaign to watch.

Thoughts On How Rand Paul Has Been Handling Biased Media

This past week Paul has challenged media personnel that he thought were being rude or unfair. Here is one instance. This one is where he took on Savannah Guthrie for editorializing.

guthrie, paul

Senator Paul has watched both President Obama handle media questions and he has seen what Hillary Clinton has done as well. She has come up with a list of words that are not acceptable to describe her – including ‘Hillary’.

She is supposed to announce her candidacy today. If she does that means she will have to deal with media questions. She will, if history tells us anything, become all imperious and refuse to answer questions she doesn’t like. She may even become snippy. Clarice Feldman, in American Thinker, says if she doesn’t want to be called ‘Hillary’ we should call her ‘Madame Ka-Ching’, points out:

Madame Kaching

Madame Ka-Ching

Is it any surprise that the campaign plans what is essentially a listening tour route to the White House? There are too many skeletons in her closet to allow even a peek into it through a keyhole.”

That would be a wonderful gift to Paul’s campaign. He is being firm but civil with reporters. He is establishing rules for interviews. Hillary will not be firm but civil. When she lashes out at someone he will have the makings of a good campaign ad.

Even if she refuses to take questions he can make her look bad. Questions are one thing she always has trouble with. And not all media people are Hillary lovers. She knows which ones will kiss her ring and which won’t. If she limits her interviews to only supporters she can be attacked for it.

The ‘Rand Paul Is Rude To The Media’ Meme Isn’t Working

Below is a clip of the end of an interview with a reporter. As you can see, they both agreed that the reporter could ask one more question. He did and then asked a second ‘Last question’. Paul walked off.

Some in the media have said he ‘Stormed off’. As you can see he didn’t. Even the Washington Post, never a friend of Republicans, has agreed that ‘Storming off’ doesn’t describe what he did.

I don’t think actions like this will hurt Paul. I think Americans know that reporters are rude and biased and will enjoy watching anyone who resists the attacks. So far he has done just fine. If he starts yelling on camera or something like that they won’t like it.
