“Speaker” Paul Ryan Waiting For “President” Clinton, Bush Or Rubio To Pass Amnesty

Jim Jordan may think that Paul Ryan “has the kind of vision and is the kind of messenger our party needs,” but as long as Ryan has the same vision as Hillary Clinton does on amnesty for illegal aliens, massive increases in H1B visas, breaking the spending caps and funding Planned Parenthood, executive amnesty and Obamacare the grassroots demand for change in the Republican “leadership” on Capitol Hill is only going to get stronger and the fissure in the GOP is only going to get deeper.

Why Benghazi Should Keep Hillary Clinton Up At Night

Ron Fournier, National Journal

Is  she a liar or a stateswoman? For the vast majority of Americans who long ago answered that question in their own minds, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s testimony on Benghazi changed nothing.

Hillary’s horrid Benghazi-hearing howlers

New York Post Editorial Board

For those who’ve followed the investigation carefully, Clinton’s hours-long testimony only provided more questions than answers about her role during and after the 2012 terror attack that left four US officials dead. That’s especially true of her flatly dishonest testimony — accompanied by icy stares of contempt and boredom — about her ongoing relationship with her family’s veteran propagandist-fixer, Sidney Blumenthal.

She Knew All Along

Kimberly A. Strassel, The Wall Street Journal

Mrs. Clinton complained in her testimony on Capitol Hill that past Congresses had never made the overseas deaths of U.S. officials a “partisan” issue. That’s because those past deaths had never inspired an administration to concoct a wild excuse for their occurrence, in an apparent attempt to avoid blame for a terror attack in a presidential re-election year.

Hillary’s Benghazi Hearing Performance

Those optimistic Republicans who thought Hillary Clinton would come before the Benghazi Committee to ask forgiveness from the families of the four Americans killed by her dereliction of duty during the attack on our consulate, and then breakdown and also cop to personally shooting Vince Foster and accepting bribes through the elaborate ruse known as Whitewater, were unfortunately disappointed by Hillary Clinton's performance at yesterday's Benghazi Committee hearing.

Benghazi and 'Untrustable' Hillary

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

The one consistent media line on Benghazi is that exploring it was "political" immediately after it happened on Sept.11, 2012, and it's still "political" to explore it in 2015 and 2016. As long as the Clintons stay active in politics, their scandals will continue, as will the damage control.
