HERE’S an idea: Pres Clinton requested $60M to put Security in Schools…

December 22, 2012

Today, the same elite media who no doubt send their own kids to private schools that employ armed security, just can’t stop howling ridicule at the NRA’s idea to give every student in America those same protections. Because the NRA’s idea is so appealing, as I write this, the media’s going overboard, mocking it as bizarre, crazy, and out of touch.

This is how the media works to silence and vilify the opposition and to ensure that only their ideas control The Narrative. The media doesn’t care about securing our schools; they only care about coming after our guns and handing Obama another political win.

The media also doesn’t care how wildly hypocritical they look.

In their zeal to rampage this left-wing agenda, the media has apparently forgotten that back in 2000, on the one-year anniversary of the Columbine shooting (which occurred with an assault weapons ban in place), President Clinton requested $60 million in federal money to fund a fifth round of funding for a program called “COPS in School,” a program that does exactly what the NRA is proposing and the media is currently in overdrive mocking:

Clinton also unveiled the $60-million fifth round of funding for “COPS in School,” a Justice Department program that helps pay the costs of placing police officers in schools to help make them safer for students and teachers. The money will be used to provide 452 officers in schools in more than 220 communities.

“Already, it has placed 2,200 officers in more than 1,000 communities across our nation, where they are heightening school safety as well as coaching sports and acting as mentors and mediators for kids in need,” Clinton said.

The media is not only so driven to ensure Sandy Hook is used to win this round on gun control that they’ve become morally blinded to what really needs to be done to immediately secure our schools; they’ve lost their grip historically and politically.

Think about it: The media is entering a new year attempting to convince parents that their children will be less safe with a policeman in their school.

Off the rails doesn’t even begin to describe it.

Clinton Pledges Funds to Add Police to Schools

Violence: President also earmarks money for child-counseling programs. GOP critics say youth problems should be addressed at home.

April 16, 2000 | LAWRENCE L. KNUTSON | AP

WASHINGTON — Marking the first anniversary of the shooting deaths at Columbine High School, President Clinton announced $120 million in new federal grants Saturday to place more police officers in schools and help even the youngest kids cope with their problems.

“In our national struggle against youth violence we must not fail our children; our future depends on it,” the president said in his weekly radio address.

Clinton announced that he and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton will host a White House conference on teenagers on May 2 to “talk through the challenges of raising responsible children.”

Parents, teens, teachers, youth workers and others will discuss research that indicates the preteen years set patterns for behavior and success in adulthood. Other subjects will include the risks, challenges and anxieties faced by young people today and what can be done to avoid dangerous or risky behavior.

“We need to talk about safety and security in every house in America,” Clinton said.

Republican critics said the federal government is a clumsy middleman in trying to cope with problems that should be addressed locally. They cast doubt on whether the teen conference would accomplish anything, accused Clinton of ignoring media violence and said he should support stiff jail sentences for anyone carrying a firearm in a violent or drug-related crime.

Clinton announced $40 million in grants for 23 school districts that he said have found successful, comprehensive approaches to help troubled young people.

“These districts are bringing school nurses and counselors together to respond to warning signs like depression or bullying,” Clinton said. “They are improving classroom security and expanding after-school and mentoring programs.”

Clinton also unveiled the $60-million fifth round of funding for “COPS in School,” a Justice Department program that helps pay the costs of placing police officers in schools to help make them safer for students and teachers. The money will be used to provide 452 officers in schools in more than 220 communities.

“Already, it has placed 2,200 officers in more than 1,000 communities across our nation, where they are heightening school safety as well as coaching sports and acting as mentors and mediators for kids in need,” Clinton said.

Finally, Clinton said the Education Department has earmarked $20 million for local proposals to create or expand counseling programs for elementary school children. “We have seen all too clearly that even our youngest children need our help,” he said.

“As we prepare next week to mark the one-year anniversary of the tragedy at Columbine High School, our thoughts turn to the safety of our communities, schools and children,” Clinton said. “All of us–parents, schools, communities and government–share responsibility to keep kids safe.”

On April 20, 1999, two students at Columbine High in Littleton, Colo., fatally shot 12 students and a teacher before killing themselves.

Clinton’s proposals drew instant comment from Republicans.

“The White House conference on teenagers is sure to draw national headlines and attention, but unlikely to add new light to these troubling questions,” said Rep. J.C. Watts Jr. (R-Okla.), chairman of the House Republican Conference. He said the solutions will be found around America’s kitchen tables, “not from Washington or from posturing politicians.”

Republican National Committee Chairman Jim Nicholson accused Clinton of having “shamelessly politicized and taken advantage of national tragedies” while ignoring the films, television programs and music videos Nicholson said are responsible for creating “a culture of death” among youthful Americans. Instead of using his office to combat the entertainment industry, Clinton has chosen to use the industry as a source of campaign cash, he said.

    Batchelor on Benghazzi

    The Benghazi mission was and continues to be a national security operation for arming, training, funding and transporting Libyan Jihadists from Cyrenaica Province of Libya to Syria to pretend to be the “Free Syrian Army.”

    This is the Obama foreign policy after two years of the Arab Spring — making common cause with strongmen and hiring gunmen to do the bidding of the powers.

    Benghazi is a window on the larger operation that aims to pressure Assad to leave Damascus or to pressure Tehran to negotiate with the US in order to preserve Assad.
    The men who killed the ambassador and the CIA ops at Benghazi were cutthroats and blackguards who were also the known hirelings of the US and Turkey. The strike that day was a revenge attack in response to the US drone-killing of a Libyan gangster who was No. 3 at Al Qaeda, named al-Libi.

    This is what the classified report begins to discuss.

    I just do not trust the stories about HRC. Something smells. Major coverup going on IMHO.

    I do think she will be/is fine, in terms of her health.

    The cartel for Obama just neutralized Hillary Clinton for 2016.

    Those radar waves leave signatures and tracksthat I have been speaking about. You cannot feel the damage they are ddoing. You will not notice a thing. Your eyes or your brain will just start bleeding. The censors will pick it up though and in DC that entire area is either Faraday or under satellite. To zap Mrs Clinton there was the shadow lands at work.

    This only happens by the real powers.

    Not that I am an expert or anything but recently due to a similar family circumstance, I have been privy to many of the CT Scans of my own mother who recently had a stroke. And to say the placement of Hillary’s blood clot is strange, is an understatement. Seeing the graphics of it’s placement, isolated and awkwardly hanging as an intact blob between the bony structure of the skull and the brain is extraordinary as agreed to by the medical community. It doesn’t look like the result of a concussion. No visible bruising to the brain sustained by a fall. Maybe the insertion/removal of a “chip” caused the clot. Not a fall, as the story goes. It’s just too neat, too contained, too strategically placed.. (behind the ear)
    The clot is there but not the result of an accidental fall. I come down on the side of a deliberate surgical procedure. How it got there with or without her permission, we will probably never know. But she knows or remembers even if it’s fuzzy like a time she felt she awoke from a dream state. She knows something happened but cannot recall it with any sense of clarity or logic.

    My Golden was chipped at 8wks old. The chip was no bigger than a grain of rice small enough to fit into the point of a needle ushered in by a special syringe. I’m sure when the chip was inserted under his skin there was a tiny bleed that healed itself without incident.

    I mentioned on this blog, after the Benghazi tragedy, when Hillary and Obama were meeting with the families at the funeral her behavior was strange. Hillary was very warm and comforting (not to the families ) but to Obama. Her voice was strange as well. As she spoke, the tone was lower than usual couching each word she spoke with such deliberation it was creepy and very unlike her natural voice. Hillary was not herself, not at all.

    I suppose we could speculate all day long and never really know what happened. The only one who knows for sure is Hillary..

    More lies upon lies upon lies. It’s just possible the pos may have taken HRC out. Did you see the look of shock on BC’s face in the NYP article?

    I will go find it and link.

    Here’s a reminder of what’s coming down the pike in Obamacare. Check this UK story.
    60,000 patients put on death pathway without being told but minister still says controversial end-of-life plan is ‘fantastic’

    • Pathway involves the sick being sedated and usually denied nutrition and fluids
    • Families kept in the dark when doctors withdraw lifesaving treatment
    • Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said pathway was a ‘fantastic step forward’
    • Anti-euthanasia group said: ‘The Pathway is designed to finish people off double quick’

    Yup, tell.

    More lies upon lies upon lies. It’s just possible the pos may have taken HRC out.
    …………………………………

    The clot, could be the residual effect from the removal of a so called chipped ‘kill switch’ used to eliminate a threat by a person under their control. If BC goes over the tapes of the ceremony put on by Obama- with Hillary doing most of the talking to the Benghazi victims families, I’m sure he can clearly see where Hillary’s behavior has been modified. The cadence of her voice is much slower, deliberate and cavalier. The tone of her voice is lower, much lower than her natural voice we’ve been listening to for years. She was smiling almost giddy around the president handling him like it was he that was the victim not the families forced to view a president pretending to be misty eyed and in shock.

    That was the first time I noticed Hillary was not herself. And mentioned it here in the stories we wrote about on the Benghazi pages.

    I think the chip was removed. Something they are not that experienced doing perfectly. The result was not leaving the scene cleanly. The stomach virus may have saved her forcing her to remain at home- that is when the headaches started and most likely intermittent dizziness prompting her to call her medical team. I don’t believe she ever fainted or fell. (There would be evidence of a bruise or a bleed and if that happened the stroke would have followed.) There is no such thing, The doctors most likely did the MRI to located the source and after that did a CAT Scan.. realizing there was a serious problem needing to conference among themselves with neuro specialists for the best and safest way to handle it.

    And this opine from TMZ news: ( strengthening my posit.)

    Dr. Keith Black, head of neurosurgery Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, said he was “surprised” by Clinton’s diagnosis. “If I were her treating physician, you would have to ask, why did she develop a thrombosis. A very unusual event following a concussion without a skull fracture.”

    I doubt very much she will be leaving hospital on Wednesday. She needs to stay there until it is safe for her to leave, BC should take no chances. If there is any possibility this was as I think.. she needs to have the same staff there everyday. Trusted people to be around Hillary and a doctor, part of the medical team, able to identify any medication she is to receive for treatment.

    This may not be over… it may just be the beginning… Bill has to realize this and protect her at all costs. Let Hillary’s hospital stay be limited and move her to an undisclosed location until she is fully recovered.

    After my stint recovering from Septic Shock- I was told I couldn’t leave the hospital because I had numerous clots in my upper right arm and as many in my right leg. I was there for 3 weeks. The first treatment was with Heparin the strongest anticoagulant. Then the next step down is to Lanoxin, an inject-able anti-coagulant given subcutaneously in the stomach twice a day. Then you move to the blood thinner Coumadin (in tablet form) for 6 mos. All through this slow moving process, a phlebotomist takes a blood sample once a week monitoring the medication which can be neither too much or too little for continued adjustments to the dosage to stabilize the patient’s blood thickness and coagulant ability.

    Hillary has an angel watching over her. All the good she has done all her life is paying off allowing her to continue her work as she planned. The cause of this problem has to be removed… and I don’t mean the blood clot. Time for BC to take action and insist to the elites, ENOUGH is ENOUGH!

    I say all this in light of the “hit job” last week on Chelsea published about her being a ‘pretend’ journalist. They want to hurt you before you hurt them.

    And- I’m sorry for being so blunt. I have been holding these words in reserve because there wasn’t enough evidence pointing in their direction. I do not sound the alarm unless I think there is real cause for concern. Better safe than sorry..

    I think you are on the right path and your analysis is intriguing. There is definitely far more going on than sudden out-of-the-blue health problems from natural causes. And I agree HRC should stay safe and quiet either in a completely monitored place like a prestigious hospital or in an undisclosed location.

    The pos is out to shut her up any way he can and at any price.

    For sure. It’s already here. I discovered this first hand. When Mom was sent to the ICU..the doctors drove me crazy stressing me out about letting my mother die. I complained asking why her BP was up around 200.. The chief said it was to enhance healing. I said, baloney! We went round and round for 20 min in his office. I said either you lower her BP or I’m having her moved out of here. He finally relented. They tried again.. Inserting a tube in her nose and taping the other nostril almost shut.. Consumed with worry, I couldn’t sleep and drove myself to the hospital at midnight to check on her. I had them redo the taping over the bridge of her nose because it still wasn’t right.

    When a loved one (at any age is in hospital, it’s only the immediate family that can save them.) Sorry, but you have to be vocal and often- otherwise, you become their victim. I know Mom wanted to live.. she was struggling to survive this calamity. If she wanted to give up and die, I wouldn’t have stopped her. She wants to live and I respect her wishes. I called her private physician to get her out of there… the next morning she left for rehab and is making little increments of progress everyday since. I look at it this way, if it’s your time.. it’s your time. If not.. no man or HC mandate is going to decide otherwise. Not while I am around…

  17. January 1, 2013 8:42 pm

    “The pos is out to shut her up any way he can and at any price.”
    ………………………..

    A chip could have been implanted shortly after Hillary took the SOS position and why there may not be any evidence of scarring. The procedure would be almost microscopic and barely invasive. Healed over long ago and covered up by her long hair. If Hillary was still in short hair mode- having it trimmed once a month to keep the shape, it might have been noticed.

    This had to be about the time they asked Hillary to grow her hair LONG… where the site of the implant had little chance of exposure and ensuing questions. BC has got to make his case to the shadowlands or NOT. Call in his favors now, otherwise no one will be safe

    The character assassination of Hillary Clinton

    By Kathleen Parker, Tuesday, January 1, 2013

    The new year began not with a cannonball off the “fiscal cliff” but with an outbreak of conspiratorial cynicism.

    This time it’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose fall and concussion, followed by a blood clot between her brain and skull, has prompted an embarrassment of theories. The gist: That woman will do anything to avoid testifying about Benghazi.

    Several commentators on the right opined via Twitter and TV, those most deadly hosts for the parasites of rumor and innuendo, that Clinton was faking her concussion to duck out on her appearance before congressional committees investigating the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Libya that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

    An independent report published last month placed substantial responsibility for the deaths on the State Department. Not only was security at the Benghazi compound weak, relying heavily on local forces with conflicting loyalties, but requests for additional security apparently were ignored or denied.

    The sentiment that Clinton might not wish to testify on the matter is not without reason. It is hard to imagine the agony of knowing that one’s lack of vigilance may have contributed to four deaths. But the attacks on Clinton during her illness, essentially attacks on her character, have been cruel and unfair. What must the world think of us?

    Clinton, who fainted as a result of dehydration after a bout of flu, hit her head and suffered a concussion, after which a blood clot was discovered. She had to be hospitalized while blood-thinning medications were administered and monitored.

    Although her critics backed off once the clot was reported, initial responses ranged from “She’s faking” to demands for proof of her concussion.

    One writer demanded her medical records. John Bolton, former ambassador to the United Nations, called Clinton’s affliction a “diplomatic illness” to avoid testifying about Benghazi. Later he suggested that details were skimpy in an effort to protect her potential 2016 presidential run.

    “I think it’s the too-cute-by-half approach that’s reflected in the absence of transparency that’s going to end up damaging her and damaging her credibility,” he said on Fox News.

    Again, Clinton may well prefer to miss her day before the firing squad, but it is unlikely that doctors or a hospital would assist a secretary of state — or anyone — in concocting a fake affliction.

    Besides, you can’t have it every which way. Immediately after the Benghazi attacks, Clinton took full responsibility for the events and was accused by Republicans of falling on her sword to protect President Obama. Now that she’s temporarily indisposed and unable to elaborate on her admitted responsibility, those same critics insist she’s trying to avoid taking personal responsibility.

    The viciousness of the pundit class is disheartening and disgusting. And these days everyone’s a pundit. Got an opinion? Why, step right up to the microphone. If you’re “good TV,” you too can be a “contributor.”

    Out in the hinterlands, where Americans consume “news” that suits their political proclivities, opinions are formed on the basis of what-he-said. Reputations and lives are ruined on the tines of pitchforks glimmering in the light of torch-bearing mobs. And those are just the “news” shows.

    One doesn’t have to be a fan of Hillary Clinton, though a Bloomberg poll says that two-thirds of Americans are, to feel tainted by the relish with which she and many others have been attacked — unfairly and disproportionately. Susan Rice, who was Obama’s favorite to replace Clinton as secretary of state, comes to mind.

    But this isn’t a problem only for women or Democrats. The rush to character assassination seems to be our only bipartisan imperative and is a blight on our political system. In this brooding age of superstition and portent, every misspoken word is a lie, every human error a hanging offense.

    This is to suggest not that we be naive or credulous but that we seek some balance in our approach to discovery. At the moment, we seem to be ricocheting between hysteria and delusion.

    Eventually, Clinton will have to step forward and take her medicine. She is slated to appear before the House Foreign Affairs Committee in mid-January, though the date hasn’t been set. The nation clearly needs answers on what happened in Benghazi, and no doubt Clinton will provide them.

    This is not blind faith in a favored politician but respect for a process that relies on accepted rules of order. We owe our representative to the world — which is to say, ourselves — at least this much.

    Where are Hillary Clinton’s critics now?

    By Colbert I. King , Updated: January 1, 2013

    At this ripe old age, I have tried to convince myself that finally I should mellow out — that I’ve just about seen it all and that what hasn’t come across my radar screen is probably not worth having missed. I was making some progress.

    Until yesterday.

    News hit hard that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had been hospitalized on Sunday night and that doctors had found a blood clot inside her skull. My sister is being treated for the same kind of blood clot problem. Like Clinton, she had collapsed and was found by others.

    The difference, however, and the reason that I’m as riled up as I have been in years, is the unforgivably mean way in which Clinton’s illness has been treated by right-wing commentators who come to the public masked with titles and celebrity status.

    Andrew Kaczynski with Buzzfeed Politics listed some of the culprits, along with their outrageous slurs against Mrs. Clinton, in a round-up item headlined: “8 people who thought Hillary Clinton was faking her concussion.”

    Kaczynski’s list includes Republican political consultant Richard Grenell, who tweeted, “Help! I’ve fallen and I can’t testify about Benghazi!” And the New York Post, which referred to “Hillary Clinton’s head fake.” My Post colleague and television sparring partner Charles Krauthammer also made the list, with a comment about Clinton’s “acute Benghazi allergy.”

    Now that we have more information about Clinton’s fall and the subsequent complications, will these commentators acknowledge their offense and apologize to the secretary of state? What about the people they hustled with their lies?

    Clinton critic John Bolton certainly wasn’t doing much apologizing yesterday.

    Will he and the other offenders now just move on to the next victim?

    Will we let them?

    Not this time.

    Questioning Hillary Clinton’s concussion, and other outrages

    By Melinda Henneberger , Updated: January 1, 2013

    Head injuries are no joke, but the backlash against those who initially questioned whether Hillary Clinton’s concussion was for real seems like an overreaction, too; you don’t have to be hateful to have wondered if she really had the flu and fell down right before she was supposed to testify about the security situation at our consulate that was really just a house in Benghazi, Libya, where four Americans were killed by terrorists in September.

    After all, public officials are routinely less than forthcoming about their health, even if we do know more now than we did when Edith Wilson was secretly running the country after her husband Woodrow’s stroke, or when the public was protected from the sight of FDR’s wheelchair. Or when John F. Kennedy’s presidential campaign flatly denied perfectly accurate, LBJ-inspired reports that JFK suffered from Addison’s disease.

    FDR was almost never photographed in his wheelchair, and the extent of his paralysis wasn’t widely known. (The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library & Museum)

    (Of course we also had no clue that as president, Kennedy took both Ritalin and sleeping pills, plus codeine, Demerol and methadone for debilitating back pain, librium for anxiety and at one point, an anti-psychotic for depression. And maybe it would do us good to review the contents of his well-stocked White House medicine chest — and if we do finally get around to addressing long-ignored mental health issues in the new year, post-Newtown, begin by taking a minute to mull the fact that yes, one of our most beloved presidents struggled with mental illness. Take that, stigma.)

    I also can’t get too outraged by the early skepticism that Hillary had a blood clot in her brain yet was also doing just great because those two reports don’t seem to mesh. The latter certainly didn’t match the expression of worry on her daughter Chelsea’s face as she left the New York hospital where her mother was admitted on Sunday.

    And finally, it isn’t as though Clinton has never shaded a fact in her 65 years; she’s been rightly hailed for a remarkable tenure as secretary of state, winning over many critics and probably even avoiding more of the blame for Benghazi than she should have. At this point, it’s the Clinton fatigue that many felt at the end of her husband’s presidency that’s fatiguing to recall, and I hope the most admired woman in the world in 2012 does run for president again in 2016.

    But without dragging the ancient White House travel office scandal or the Rose Law Firm into this century, she’s still the same person who repeatedly described being under sniper fire on a runway in Bosnia. During her ’08 campaign, she was eventually forced to apologize for saying, ”I remember landing under sniper fire,” in Tuzla back in 1996. “There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.” Turns out, that never happened, though the greeting ceremony did.

    We know now that Clinton did not pull a Ferris Bueller to avoid testifying about the attack that killed our ambassador, Chris Stevens, and three other Americans. But if she had, would we really have thought so much less of her for it? She was praised for having sense enough to let poor Susan Rice take the Sunday shows right after the attack, and I’m not sure there wasn’t a little admiration in those “Benghazi flu” comments from the right.

    Already, reports that describe Clinton’s right transverse sinus venous thrombosis as potentially life-threatening, though apparently caught in time, sound a lot more serious than the word from her doctors that “The secretary is making excellent progress and we are confident she will make a full recovery. She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family and her staff.” And would we really be shocked to learn down the road that reports during her hospitalization had put a positive spin on her condition?

    It isn’t only the pope who’s always in excellent health, according to his doctors, anyway — right up until he dies. Lots of us still prefer “passing away” to plain old death and pink ribbons to scars, and news reports persist in relaying that sick people are “resting comfortably,” which nobody in a hospital ever did. Such neatening up of the facts isn’t convincing, though, and when we read that that poor Indian woman brutally raped on a bus “died peacefully,” we’re right to think no, she didn’t; she was beaten into a coma, which isn’t the same thing.

    Our public officials have trained us to take everything they say with a healthy dose of skepticism, and on a matter as sensitive as a head injury followed by denials of any neurological symptoms, I’m not sure why we would or should unquestioningly accept the word of any politician. After all she’s been accused of — and will be again if she runs next time — this is nothing.

    Thanks, Jan for posting the opinions of others. It’s good to know there are others out there who aren’t afraid to stand up and speak out, if nothing else, on principle and fair play.. Because of reading your articles, another thought occurred to me… Why isn;t Obama out there putting a stop to the gossip about his #1 faithful employee? Doesn;t he know if he holds his breath too long he;ll turn blue and suffocate himself? Maybe, he’s been waiting for the other shoe to drop? Thinking, I’ll wait, it’s only a matter of time. Whatever Hillary knew will not be a problem anymore.

    A wink and a nod from Obama as he jets off to Hawaii sparing no expense ($7M) for his comfort on vacation. After watching the Christmas Tribute to First Ladies, particularly, Laura Bush. Mrs Bush was so respectful of spending Tax Payer money. The Bushes spent the holidays at Camp David at virtually no added expense to the tax payer. I was impressed with her awareness of suffering Americans when she said that…

    I think that is why, I LOVE Texas so much. Texans try helping one another if they can. There is very little in the way of obstacles like Rules and Regulations to overcome for ordinary people trying to earn a living. Texas is the way the Eastern states used to be 75yrs ago.

    ‘Border Has Never Been More Secure’: Hezbollah, Cartels Working Together

    In November, Breitbart News reported Hezbollah’s growing influence in South America. The terrorist organization is now expanding to the north, teaming up with dangerous Mexican drug cartels and engaging in weapon trafficking in and out of Mexico. These weapons may include guns from gun-walking operations by the US government.

    Operation Fast and Furious was an ATF gun-walking scheme that placed over 2,000 guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels. These guns are linked to the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and 300+ Mexican citizens. They have been found at crime scenes across the US and South America. Hundreds of guns are still missing. Another gun-walking operation out of Dallas, TX is linked to the death of ICE Agent Jaime Zapata.

    The ATF did not track the guns or make any effort to intercept them. No one knows where the missing guns are now, but if someone follows the tracks it is easy to posit where they may have landed.

    The House Committee on Homeland Security went detailed how Venezuela and Iran managed to skate around sanctions placed against them, making it easy for Venezuela to ship anything like weapons or money or drugs to Iran. For example, last month the UN placed sanctions on two Iran firms because they were caught supplying weapons to Syria.

    Hezbollah is also teaching the drug cartels how to build elaborate tunnels under the US-Mexico border. The tunnels are almost identical to the ones the terrorists built under the Gaza-Egypt border. Cartels are able to smuggle drugs, humans, and weapons into the US with these tunnels. More guns from gun-walking operations could easily find their way back to America.

    The enemy is on the door step. Will 2013 finally be the year President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, and Department of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano stop claiming the border is as secure as ever?

    When is someone going to step up and stop the influx of not only illegals in this country but the Obama condoned underground invasion of terrorists through US Borders.

    Hillary Clinton leaves New York hospital with family, aide

    Hillary
    ………………….

    Chelsea looks much happier today. She has her Mom under HER wing and I’m sure she will be by her side everyday until she is better..

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was driven away from New York-Presbyterian hospital on Wednesday with her husband, Bill, and daughter, Chelsea, and an aide, a Reuters photographer witnessed.

    The four of them left the building and entered the same vehicle, which drove away.

    It was unclear where she was going or whether she was discharged from the hospital, where she was admitted for treatment of a blood clot.

    A hospital spokeswoman has directed all comment on Clinton to the State Department.

    I can’t tell you how relieved I am Hillary is out of hospital and headed for parts unknown. Time to turn this into a full scale PAACO ‘protect at all costs operation.’ Undisclosed location, TV w/recorded monitors, helo transport at a moments notice, trusted staff, doctors on call 24/7 and above all independent security oversight for personnel in addition to SS. Any deviation from the initial set up has to be approved by BC himself. (well, that would be my rule.. :-) )

    Get Well soon, Madame Secretary- give em HELL later!
    As my Nana would say: “worry about nothin!”

    Thats when I knew she was in control and I didn’t have to worry anymore!

    ULSTERMAN.. the RI…

    “What’s the old saying? Death comes in threes? “

    _____________________________

    RI: Read the article outlining the battle between Cantor and Boehner I told you about earlier. Some pushing and shoving at this point. The knives haven’t come out just yet and Boehner and his supporters are trying to calm us down and making promises that the debt ceiling will be the real battle and that we can count on him then. Yeah, right. He lost a lot of votes and a lot of support on this fiscal cliff nonsense.

    There were a few Democrats saying that Obama played no part in the actual negotiations. He didn’t return calls. Didn’t offer up suggestions. Nothing. Everything went through White House operatives. Then we had the Joe Biden show which I figured right off the bat was some kind of reward to him for time served to help set up the 2016 run. Biden, who is already about 70 years old, really does believe he will be the next president and he has enough Obama operatives willing to consider that scenario that they set up his dog and pony thing with McConnell to get the Senate vote. Biden is so confident I heard he shook McConnell’s hand and said, “Look forward to working with you in four years Mitch – from the Oval Office.”

    My guess, and that’s all it is at this point, is that the same people who put Barack Obama in power have been given assurances by Joe Biden that he will be more than happy to continue the agenda. Meaning they can completely control Biden just like they do Obama. But a 74 year old first term President of the United States? That seems highly unlikely. I say that and then have to remind myself how unlikely it was for an unknown absentee Senator from Illinois to become president. If the powers that be want it to happen, it can happen. Especially if enough people continue to not pay attention or allow themselves to be split up and fighting one another.

    We all need to remind ourselves of that.

    More to come after the smoke clears on this latest battle. People need to realize that a majority of Republicans in the House voted NO on the fiscal cliff deal. We also had 16 Democrats join us in that no vote. The Obama machine is now turning its sights on 2014. They are targeting very specific GOP races they think they can win. They want the House back. Obama’s 3rd year agenda is the one that really worries me now. If we keep the House and take the Senate in 2014, we can start to rebuild from the Obama damage that he has already done, and make him a complete Lame Duck. If we lose the House and the Dems keep the Senate, as bad as things are now, I know they will get much worse. I’m starting to sense that getting Obama re-elected was to set up that 3rd year agenda. The real globalization push. Taxes, immigration, guns, environment, currency, healthcare mandates, the domestic drone program, all of it and more will come together in that third year if they control the White House and Congress. All of it will be finalized. Everything the globalists have worked for all this time will come together during that third year of Barack Obama’s second term. What’s the old saying? Death comes in threes? Word is Boehner thinks that legislative doomsday scenario is silly while Cantor is taking it much more seriously.
