Hillary Clinton DOESN’T KNOW WHAT MARINES DO At US Embassies (VIDEO)

Apparently, Hillary Clinton is clueless about who works at US embassies. She doesn’t even seem to know what US Marines do.

Breitbart reports:

Clinton revealed her lack of knowledge about the U.S. embassy security situation at Thursday’s House Benghazi Committee hearing, where she said that Marines stationed at Benghazi “were not there” to protect personnel.

“Certainly it was useful for our security professionals and our diplomats to be partnered in that way with the Defense Department. You know, historically the only presence at some of our facilities has been Marines. And as you know well, Marines were there not for the purpose of personnel protection; they were there to destroy classified material and equipment,” Clinton said.

But the Marine Security Guards at U.S. Embassies do, actually, provide security for personnel, according to the Marine Corps website.

Wow. And this woman was our Secretary of State.

Was Hillary TWEETING DURING THE BENGHAZI HEARING?

It looks like Hillary began the public relations spin on her Benghazi committee testimony before the hearing even ended.

Was she actually tweeting during the hearing?

If she truly wanted to honor those who died in the Benghazi attacks, Hillary would have admitted she lied when she blamed the attack on a YouTube video.

Trey Gowdy Just OWNED HILLARY CLINTON With This Statement During Benghazi Hearing (VIDEO)

Rep. Trey Gowdy has proven himself to be a real badass during the Benghazi investigations, in which Hillary Clinton was questioned today.

Though Hillary would have everyone believe that the hearings are nothing more than political, Gowdy totally blew this accusation out of the water with this statement:

The committee’s hearing with Clinton, Gowdy said, “is about what this country owes those who risk their lives to serve it.

“It is about the fundamental obligation of our government to tell the truth–always–to the American people,” he said.

“I understand you wanted to come sooner than today so let me be clear why that did not happen. You had an unusual email arrangement with yourself, which meant the State Department could not produce your emails to us,” Gowdy said in his opening statement.

So the Clinton Foundation took in millions of dollars worth of foreign donations while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. So what?

That’s exactly what former President Bill Clinton thinks of the entire debacle. Take a look at this video from the Daily Caller:

No Stunner Here – Only 41 Percent of People Approve of Obama Foreign Policy

Not that it should surprise anyone, but President Obama’s approval rating for his handling of international affairs has hit an all-time low, according to the results of a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.

From ABC News:

At 41 percent, Obama’s approval rating for handling international affairs is down slightly, by six points, from early March, and down further, by 13 points, since his re-election, to a career low. Fifty percent disapprove, a new high, with those who strongly disapprove outnumbering strong approvals by 2-1.

In further criticism on the international front, 58 percent said the Obama administration has tried to cover up the facts about the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya in 2012.

We have to wonder what these poll numbers might have looked like if surveys had been taken following the absurd swap of five dangerous terrorist prisoners for one American soldier who may have been deserting when he was captured in Afghanistan.

The new numbers suggest that Americans are finally starting to understand what happened in Benghazi, and may keep open minds during upcoming congressional hearings. It’s about time this administration is held accountable for its actions. Apparently the people are finally tired of waiting for this man to produce and are ready for change.

The Left is using latest round of climate hysteria to distract from Obama’s ruinous policies

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Perhaps you’ve noticed that Democrats and their co-workers in the media are acting especially hysterical lately about “man-made climate change.”

In just the past few days, there’ve been news stories warning that climate change could destroy America’s national landmarks, imperil our national security, lead to more wildfires, and even disrupt corn and rice production. (“Cereal lovers of the world may want to start stocking up now,” warns Time.com.)

On Wednesday, a group of leading Democrats gathered outside a Senate office building to highlight the need for immediate legislative action. California Sen. Barbara Boxer even called for an end to climate change “denial,” a deliberate word choice to subtly link climate-change skeptics to Holocaust deniers.

The environmentalists and their media groupies have obviously decided to crank up the volume of their alarmism to “11,” but why now?

That’s easy.

Leftists want to talk about the weather because the rest of their agenda has proven to be a total flop with the American people. Just consider the list of issues Democrats don’t want to talk about with the November elections looming.

Most Americans think Obama lies, but they don’t seem to care very much

Obama lies
(The Weekly Standard)

NEW YORK – A new Fox News poll tells us that a majority of American voters believe President Obama lies to the country “some or most of the time.”

“About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, “ the Fox report said. “Thirty-seven percent said Obama lies ‘most of the time,’ while another 24 percent say he lies ‘some of the time.’ Twenty percent of voters say ‘only now and then’ and 15 percent say ‘never.’

The American people finally get it. After watching Obama get caught in the monster lie about citizens not losing their private health insurance coverage, and his constant ducking and weaving of questions about the Benghazi and IRS scandals, voters finally understand that this guy has a problem telling the truth.

The scary part is that it doesn’t seem to matter. According to the latest Gallup daily tracking poll, the president receives a positive job approval rating from about 46 percent of the public. They admit he’s a liar – and by extension admit that he can’t be trusted – yet nearly half of voters give him good marks for his performance.

Have we become so cynical about politicians that we assume all of them are liars, and our only option is to pick and choose among dishonest office seekers? If so, that’s frightening, because it means we’ve lost our determination to demand good, honest and forthright government. If we stop asking for that, we’ll keep getting the type of leadership we have, which is probably what we deserve.
