Hillary reportedly told the FBI that Powell advised her in a 2009 email exchange to use a personal account. And ardent Clinton supporter Joe Conason apparently claims that Powell so advised her at a dinner party hosted by Madeleine Albright in early 2009.
Powell, however, isn’t having it. He told the New York Post: “The truth is she was using [her personal email] for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did [as Secretary of State].” Powell also says he has “no recollection” of the alleged dinner party exchange which, according to the Daily Caller, has not been corroborated by other attendees.
The Post says that Powell appeared angry about being made the fall guy. Asked why Team Clinton is trying to blame him, he shot back: “Why do you think?”
Now if you lie to the FBI that is a federal crime! No big deal when Hillary Clinton lies to the FBI but god save your ass if YOU lie to the FBI.
And then you have this …
My sense is that we don’t think enough about how much we collectively, yet unwittingly, force politicians to lie to us.
A huge portion of the US electorate is sick and tired of our politicians lying to us. Jack is sure that more than enough is sick of this lying shit but Trump has to get them to the pols and vote.
Now but you say ALL politicians lie! To a certain extent that is true. What has become apparent in the Democratic party is they don’t even care if you know they are lying … they just keep repeating the lie.
This is the old notion that if you say it enough and keep lying a portion of the electorate will believe the lie. Take in point the Clinton email lies. Hillary Clinton continues to lie about the email scandal and a portion of the Demcratic electorate believes her. The rest of the Democrats don’t believe her but still support her because in their mind a lying Democrat in office is still better than any republican.
Hillary said she got short circuited when asked about her email scandal lying. What the fuck does that even mean? She says she din’t lie to the Benghazi family’s. The family’s say she is lying. Who do you believe?
Obamas latest lie is about not paying ransom for hostages. The Iranians say he is lying. Obama says the economy is doing great. The numbers say he is lying. Then he says Israel loves the Iran nuke deal now … another lie. Israel says your lying through your teeth Obama!Again … who do you believe?
Now the media ABC, NBC, CBS ,CNN, MSNBC, NPR, New York Times, Washington Post and many more will continue to lie for Hillary and Obama mostly with the lie of omission. They just won’t cover the story or give the story five seconds (and hope no one sees it), or a few words on the back pages ( and hope no one reads it) to have plausible deniability in able to say … WE covered the story! Walter Cronkite is rolling over in his grave.
And this is why Jack thinks Trump has a chance to win. To steal a Trump saying … A “HUGGGGE” portion of the US electorate is sick of the lying and good or bad only wants to be told the truth.
Jack is not sure what Trump will bring to the table but he knows what Hillary Clinton will bring to the table … MORE LIES! And lots of them … don’t even get Jack started on the Clinton Foundation Slush Fund.
First of all, the State Department’s policy as of 2005 (Clinton joined in 2009) is that all day-to-day operations are to be conducted on the official State Department information channel. Clinton never once used this State Department email system.
And if an employee needs to use a personal email for conducting official business, he or she has an “obligation” to consult with the chief information officer and the assistant secretary for diplomatic security. However, Clinton did neither.
These two offices told the inspector general that they “did not — and would not — approve her exclusive reliance on a personal email account to conduct Department business, because of the restrictions in the (Foreign Affairs Manual) and the security risks in doing so.”
Jack smells a rat. Trump needs to jump on this rat and not let go. When he does jump on this in upcoming debates … he should lump the MSM into this rat’s nest for not calling her out!
I’d chalk that up to a glitch if not for the fact that it jibes with Obama’s own notorious policy of not mentioning Islam in connection with jihadism. If that’s his rhetorical preference, okay; it reeks of embarrassing political correctness but it’s his prerogative to choose his own words. It’s not his prerogative to choose someone else’s words, particularly when that someone is a foreign head of state whose country is dealing with a more severe jihadist threat right now than the United States is. They’ve actually reached the point now where they’re blacking out references to Islam for English speakers in official state video of talks over terrorism. (At least they’re not censoring transcripts. Yet.)
KU students took to Twitter this week to express their outrage over the political speech, saying they are troubled that some of their classmates are Trump supporters, and even comparing the chalk messages to the confederate flag.
“The issue is folks in the KU vicinity support a racist, sexist demagogue.”
The university said that they would have allowed students to chalk had they applied for approval, but allegedly had staff remove the unapproved chalking the day it was discovered.
Former student senator Shegufta Huma, however, argued that approval from the University is less important than the message itself, tweeting a photo of one chalking with the caption, “Is this the post-racial paradise folks pretend exists?”
“The issue isn’t whether a student chalked or if it was approved,” Huma tweeted later. “The issue is folks in the KU vicinity support a racist, sexist demagogue.”
If this would be any republican that did this it would be front page above the fold in bold headlines news.
Protesters blocking road to Trump rally in AZ have now used cables to lock themselves to cars blocking road, @Jacobnbc reports on @MSNBC.
Tow the cars away and the “protesters” off to jail.
Bill MoveOn.org … a fckin fortune!
These “protesters have just gone from protesting to criminal behavior. Arrest and charge them for their crimes. This is not civil disobedience any more. It’s “organized” criminal activity. Charge them with RICO act!
Here are some tidbits from the committee’s press release:
Made public for the first time, records turned over to the Committee in response to the subpoena show the Federal Reserve Bank of New York previously made plans to prioritize Social Security, veterans’ benefits, and principal and interest payments on the debt over other government obligations. The Administration, however, directed the New York Fed to withhold this information from the Committee because “Treasury wants to maximize pressure on Congress by limiting communications about contingency planning,” according to a previously undisclosed internal email of the New York Fed…. Efforts by the Obama Administration to keep its contingency planning a secret were met with objections from officials at the Federal Reserve and the New York Fed, who described the approach in an email as “crazy, counter-productive, and add[ing] risk to an already risky situation.”
Obama administration is the dirt bag of lying politics to get whatever they want.
A vote for Hillary Clinton will be as bad if not worse … in the lying department.
