As Spinal Tap’s Nigel Tufnel explains about amps and Brian Williams embellishments, this one goes to eleven!!!
When will Brian Williams return to NBC News, if ever? Back in February, NBC News suspended Brian Williams for 6 months without pay for his his faux Iraq war news story in 2003. It only took NBC News more than a decade to get to the bottom of this situation and Williams may never have been suspended at all if he had just shut his trap and stopped telling the false story. However, the NBC internal investigation of their news anchor has turned up at least 11 instances in which Williams publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits. 11!!! Good grief, the New York Times is reporting that NBC is looking into whether Williams fibbed about his reporting during Egypt’s Arab Spring.
Brian Williams’ suspension ends in August; however, I will find it impossible to believe that they could ever bring him back. All a news anchor has is their credibility to report the news and with 11 embellishments to his credit, Williams news cred is shot.
A months-long internal investigation of Brian Williams by NBC News has turned up 11 instances in which the anchorman publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits, according to a person familiar with details of the probe.
NBC undertook the examination of Williams’ statement after he apologized in early February for saying on “NBC Nightly News” that a military helicopter in which he was traveling at the start of the Iraq War had been damaged by rocket fire. His account was challenged by soldiers who were on the flight, leading to a furor that prompted NBC to suspend Williams for six months without pay and to investigate other statements he’s made.
The Iraq claim was one of the 11 suspect statements that a team of NBC News journalists has identified during the inquiry, said the individual, who asked not to be identified because he isn’t authorized to talk about an internal matter.
The investigators, led by NBC News senior executive producer Richard Esposito, have also raised doubts about Williams’ comments about his experiences covering Israel’s military action against Hezbollah in Lebanon in 2006. In an interview with a student-run television station at Fairfield University in Connecticut in 2007, Williams said he saw rockets passing “just beneath” the Israel helicopter in which he was traveling. But Williams gave a less harrowing account of the same trip in an NBC News blog a year earlier
NY Times Journalist Caught the Clinton Foundation Red-Handed in a Lie About a Meeting Between former President Bill Clinton and Kazatomprom, a Kazakhstan State-Owned Nuclear Holding Company
LIARS: If you actually care about America, you will watch the video below that shows of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Lied and sold out our country to the Russians …
How big was the New York Times story on Bill and Hillary Clinton and the uranium deal, bigger than you think. If Hillary Clinton and the Clinton’s are allowed to get away with this then this country is lost forever. At some point Americans have to actually care that those in power and have the ultimate power like president of the United States actually have an ounce of decency, credibility and ethics. The individual who holds the highest office in the land can’t be a complete and total liar and hide behind a gender card saying what difference does it make. When is enough, enough?
When Hillary Clinton announced that she was going to run for president in 2016, she stated, “Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion.” Clinton went on to further say, “Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top.” AMERICA, WAKE THE HELL UP … HILLARY CLINTON IS THAT PERSON AT THE TOP THAT THE DECK IS STACKED IN FAVOR OF!!! Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton have sold America out so that they could become rich, breaking every law that the so-called people she wants to champion would have been arrested and thrown in jail. America, we are no longer talking about Bill lied about sex with an intern … THESE LIES ARE MUCH, MUCH INSIDIOUS.
Fox News: Millions To Clinton Foundation In Exchange For Russian Uranium Deal
But, as New York Times reporter Jo Becker reported, such a deal would require review by the U.S. government. That’s where Frank Giustra, a Canadian business executive and founder of the company that would become Uranium One, entered the picture.
Giustra reportedly set up a meeting between Kazatomprom officials and Bill Clinton himself — at the former president’s home in Chappaqua, New York.
Giustra has close ties to Bill Clinton and is a major donor to the Clinton Foundation. The two even flew to Kazakhstan together when Giustra’s company landed a lucrative deal to secure uranium mines there.
Here’s where the lie comes in.
Becker told Fox News’ Bret Baier that when she first asked a Clinton Foundation spokesman and Giustra about the meeting, they both said no such meeting ever took place. However, when she informed them that the then-head of Kazatomprom not only told her that the meeting had taken place, but also showed her a picture of himself with Clinton at the Chappaqua home proudly displayed in his office, they were forced to admit the meeting occurred.
In 2007, Toshiba “sold a 10 percent stake in U.S. nuclear power plant builder Westinghouse,” Reuters reported.
During Hillary Clinton’s tenure at the U.S. State Department, foreign governments and businesses donated tens of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and paid millions in speaker fees to former President Clinton. Some of those same players then had business or policy issues later land on then-Secretary of State Clinton’s desk.
In addition to concerns about ethics of such practices, Clinton failed to disclose millions of dollars in big foreign donations to her husband’s foundation, which she had previously vowed to do. It was also reported that the Clinton Foundation is redoing five years worth of tax returns after a review by Reuters found several errors.
That’s the gist of the bombshell reports, based on Peter Schweizer’s new book, “Clinton Cash,” that emerged on Thursday.
Megan Murphy on MSNBC … Hillary Clinton “Cruised Right On By” Everyday Iowans Waiting To Meet Her” Including Elderly People in Wheel Chairs
WHAT DOES HILLARY CLINTON HAVE AGAINST PEOPLE IN WHEEL CHAIRS?
First the Hillary Clinton’s Scoobie van is parked in a handicapped parking spot illegally and now she cruises right past people, some in wheelchairs that were there to meet her in Iowa. Hillary’s meet and greet the little people turns out to be total BS as she wound up driving right by the so-called every day Americans that she told us all that she wanted to meet on this van tour. Imagine that, Hillary lied again. Just curious, how is Hillary Clinton supposed to be the champion of the common folk if she cant find time to meet with them?
Washington Free Beacon – Reporter: Hillary’s Van Drove Past Elderly People in Wheelchairs Waiting to Talk to Her.
Hillary Clinton wants to meet “everyday Americans” so badly, she drove right past many waiting in front of her event in Iowa.
In the now-viral clip of reporters chasing after Clinton’s “Scooby” van, the Clinton camp drove to the back entrance, surprising both reporters and many of her supporters waiting to get a glimpse of the candidate.
“I think what you don’t see in that clip, which is one of the most surprising things is there were actually a ton of people waiting for her at the front of that college,” said Financial Times reporter Megan Murphy. “There were elderly people in wheelchairs, there were people — and they just cruised right on by to the back.”
The news that Clinton symbolically drove past ordinary voters while driving their own “everyday Americans” to the event will certainly reflect poorly on the campaign. The incident draws parallels to the man Clinton hopes to succeed in the Oval Office when he drove past disabled veterans in Phoenix.

Robert De Niro Says Hillary Clinton Should Be the Next President Because She is a Woman and Has Paid Her Dues
Who knew the qualification to be president were to be a woman and pay your dues … If it were a lying sack of garbage with no idea what transparency was, Hillary would be #1.
Robert De Niro thinks Hillary Clinton should be the next President of the United States because she is a woman and she has paid her dues. HUH? De Niro says that Hillary has “earned the right to be president and the head of the country at this point”. DOUBLE HUH? Please elaborate Mr. De Niro, exactly what has she done to earn the right to be president, other than being a woman? Maybe Hillary earned the right to be president because of Benghazigate and the death of 4 Americans, including US Ambassador Chris Stevens while she was the Secretary of State? Maybe it was that Russian reset that went so well while she was Secretary of State. How about the Clinton Foundation taking foreign money while she was Secretary of the United States? Does that qualify her? Maybe her lack of transparency and her use of a private email accounts to conduct government business that were stored on her own private server in her home is the qualification that should make her president? That same private server that she claims to have wiped clean. Should some one who conducts them self life Richard Nixon during Watergate really be the next President of the United States?
But as all Hilary Clinton sycophants say, what difference does it make what she does, she has paid her dues. Hey Bob, please stick to acting.
Watch Hillary Clinton Lie About Benghazi-Gate During Capitol Hill Press Conference as Trey Gowdy Owns Her
5:50 minute mark of Video: I Believe in transparency, I believe in taking responsibility. Can one get more than 4 Pinocchio’s for lying?
Our talk eventually veered to his prophetic 2006 Hardball appearance, and whether or not he’ll be endorsing Hillary Clinton for president in 2016.
“Hopefully it will be her, yes,” said De Niro. “I think that she’s paid her dues. There are going to be no surprises, and she has earned the right to be president and the head of the country at this point. It’s that simple. And she’s a woman, which is very important because her take on things may be what we need right now.”
“She’s smart, has run things before, and knows how government works and how to get things done,” added Rosenthal. “She’s watched it from the sidelines, and the frontlines.”
But no one can name any accomplishment that qualifies her to be president, except the fact that she would be the first female president. Wow, we all know how the first black president worked out, don’t we?
Carly Fiorina at CPAC: ‘Mrs. Clinton, please name an accomplishment’.
Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who is actively pondering a run for the GOP’s 2016 presidential nomination, took aim Thursday at Democrats’ likely nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton, saying she didn’t amass any victories while racking up ethics violations during her time as secretary of state.
“Mrs. Clinton, name an accomplishment. And in the meantime, please explain why we should accept that the millions and millions of dollars that have flowed into the Clinton Global Initiative from foreign governments doesn’t represent a conflict of interest,” Mrs. Fiorina said at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
ISIS (Islamic State) Calls For the Death of 100 United States Military Personnel Who They Posted Names & Addresses Online
HOW’S THAT JV TERRORIST GROUP WORKING OUT FOR YOU BARACK OBAMA?
The Islamic State has called for the death of American military personnel as they have reportedly posted the names, addresses and photos of 100 American military service members online and called upon its “brothers residing in America” to kill them. The self-identified “Islamic State Hacking Division” claimed to have obtained the information by hacking into military servers, databases and emails. They are claiming the individuals named had participated in efforts to defeat it in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and elsewhere.
Islamic State has posted online what it says are the names, U.S. addresses and photos of 100 American military service members, and called upon its “brothers residing in America” to kill them.
The Pentagon said after the information was posted on the Internet that it was investigating the matter. “I can’t confirm the validity of the information, but we are looking into it,” a U.S. defense official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said on Saturday.
“We always encourage our personnel to exercise appropriate OPSEC (operations security) and force protection procedures,” the official added.
In the posting, a group referring to itself as the “Islamic State Hacking Division” wrote in English that it had hacked several military servers, databases and emails and made public the information on 100 members of the U.S. military so that “lone wolf” attackers can kill them.
Defense Department and F.B.I. officials said that they were aware of the website and were investigating the posting.
It does not appear that the information had been hacked from government servers. One Defense Department official, who was not authorized to speak publicly, said that most of the information could be found in public records, residential address search sites and social media.
The officials said the list appears to be drawn from personnel who have appeared in news articles about airstrikes on the militant group.
Some of the names also appear to be drawn from the Defense Department’s own official reports on the campaign against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL.
“With the huge amount of data we have from various different servers and databases, we have decided to leak 100 addresses so that our brothers in America can deal with you,” the Islamic State’s so-called Hacking Division said in the web posting.
It added: “And now we have made it easy for you by giving you addresses, all you need to do is take the final step, so what are you waiting for?”
The disclosure by the Islamic State highlights some of the challenges facing the military in balancing how it performs two essential functions: protecting its personnel while providing the American public with information.
UPDATE I: ‘Behead them in their own homes’: ISIS publishes ‘kill list’ online of names, photos and addresses of 100 US military members.
The ISHD said it wants ‘lone wolf’ attackers to go after the military members and ‘kill them wherever you find them’.
The list did appear to match up with information which was available online, TheBlaze reported.
The posting read: ‘With the huge amount of data we have from various different servers and databases, we have decided to leak 100 addresses so that our brothers in America can deal with you.
‘And now we have made it easy for you by giving you addresses, all you need to do is take the final step, so what are you waiting for?
‘Kill them in their own lands, behead them in their own homes, stab them to death as they walk their streets thinking that they are safe.’
12 Year Old Girl Charged with 2 Counts of First Degree Attempted Murder For Trying to Poison Her For Taking Away Her iPhone
ATTEMPTED MURDER FOE HAVING YOU IPHONE TAKEN AWAY?
A 12 year old girl in Colorado has been detained at the Boulder County Juvenile Center on two counts of attempted first-degree murder for attempting to poison her mother for having taken away her iPhone. According to police, the unnamed minor had poisoned her mother’s drink with bleach on two separate occasions. On March 6, the mother was sent to the Boulder Community Hospital when she contacted authorities to investigate. What kind of children are we raising that would even contemplate poisoning their parent because of being punished for having their iPhone taken away? Obviously, this pre-teen may need to have her freedom taken away as well.
A 12-year-old Colorado girl has been detained for allegedly trying to kill her mother twice by poisoning her drinks with bleach, after her mother took away her iPhone, police said.
The woman first felt sick on March 2, after drinking a smoothie, according to the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office. While she noticed the smell of bleach from her glass, the woman assumed her daughter hadn’t rinsed it properly, according to the sheriff’s office.
Then a few days later, the mother again recognized the smell of bleach coming from something she was going to drink and she confronted the pre-teen, the sheriff’s office said. The girl allegedly told her she wanted to kill her because she took away her iPhone, according to the sheriff’s office.
The girl had allegedly poured bleach into her mother’s water carafe, the sheriff’s office said.
Congressional Committee Investigating Benghazi Officially Requests Hillary Clinton Hand Over her Email Server
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE, RIGHT HILLARY?
The House committee investigating Benghazi headed by Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) has officially requested on Friday that Hillary Rodham Clinton turn her email server over to an independent third party to determine whether she and the Obama administration complied with open-records laws. At the heart of the issue is whether Hillary Clinton has previous complied with committee requests in turning over any and all documents when it comes to Benghazi, where four Americans, including US Ambassador Stevens. Seeing that Hillary Clinton had all of her emails on her own private server and has stated that she would not hand them over to a third party for review, it would appear that this request will fall on deaf ears.
Emails. what emails?
The committee investigating Benghazi formally requested Friday that Hillary Rodham Clinton turn her email server over to an independent third party so it can be scrutinized to determine whether she and the Obama administration complied with open-records laws.
Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy sent a letter to the former secretary of state’s personal lawyer making the request, which he said only comes after “exhaustive efforts” to get a look at her communications during the time of the 2012 terrorist attack on the diplomatic post in Libya’s second-largest city.
“Though Secretary Clinton alone is responsible for causing this issue, she alone does not get to determine its outcome,” the South Carolina Republican said.
House Republicans have sought access to the server since the news earlier this month that Clinton used a private email for official purposes during her time at State and her documents were not stored within the State Department, but instead on a private server off-site.
Clinton regained control over those emails but turned over thousands of pages of documents to the State Department for release — except personal emails that Clinton said during a press conference focus on more mundane matters like yoga, her daughter’s wedding and family vacations.
But the exclusion of thousands of emails from the State Department’s review prompted questions from Republicans that Clinton may have withheld official correspondence from her time at State. Gowdy was one of the first Republicans to call for Clinton to make the server available for review — a request Speaker John Boehner joined earlier this week.
“The committee must have objective assurances it, and by extension the House of Representatives as a whole, has received all relevant information requested and necessary for a thorough investigation into what happened before, during and after the attacks in Benghazi, Libya,” Gowdy wrote in the letter.
This scandal is going to dog Hillary all the way to 2016.
The Kelly File: Hillary Clinton Fails Miserably in Presser Handling Private Email Controversy … Judge Andrew Napolitano Discusses the Legality
WELL THAT WENT BADLY …
Last night on The Kelly Files, Megyn Kelly put the Hillary Clinton private email scandal front and center. In what was a contrived and controlled media even by Hillary Clinton at the UN, Hillary tried to defuse the bomb that is her use of private emails and a private server while she was Secretary of State; however, only made matters worse. Hillary Clinton stated that she fully complied and followed every rule. Fox News Senior Judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said, “it was absolutely not true” that she followed that she followed State Department rules. If this is what Hillary Clinton is going to act like and conduct herself as a presidential candidate, she will fail.
OMG, check out the 4:00 minute mark of the VIDEO below and here Hillary Clinton sound exactly like her hubby, Slick Willy, in a 1990′s flashback. Hillary responded to a question about her private email scandal, “I did not email any, um, classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material. Boy this sounds an awful like, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky, not a single time. (VIDEO)” We all know how that lie wound up.
If this is what those in the government class are going to do and act in a non-transparent way while working for “We the People” we might as well scrap this whole thing. This is why America does not trust politicians. This was an obvious end run around the use of a government web site in an attempt to conceal documents. How are we supposed to know that Hillary Clinton did not delete documents? Are we supposed to trust her, really? Of course Hillary stated in the past that GWB was shredding the Constitution with the use of private WH emails, but of course this is different.
Hillary Clinton Bombs in Email-Gate Presser … ‘Opted for Convenience’ … Will Not Allow Independent Commission to Examine All of the Emails or Server
IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHAT PRIVATE DELETED EMAIL IS …
Hillary Clinton underwhelms during presser on Email-gate. Her prepared
statements spin was one thing. Her Q & A was a disaster. If she thought she was going to put out the fire created by this controversy, she might want to think again. During her press conference she admitted to deleting person emails. Really, who is to say they were person, Hillary? Why should we be surprised? This is what it was like during the 8 years of the Bill Clinton presidency, one set of rules for us and a second set for the Clinton’s. So Hillary not only uses a private email account, by a private server as well. All this while she told members of the State Department to use government email. Same old Clinton games.
“When I got to work as secretary of State, I opted for convenience to use my personal email account, which was allowed by the State Department, because I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal emails instead of two,” she said, referring to the use of one mobile phone to check her email. “Looking back, it would have been better if I’d simply used a second email account and carried a second phone, but at the time, this didn’t seem like an issue.”
Clinton spoke at a highly anticipated Tuesday press conference that clocked in at just under 21 minutes, after keynoting a Women’s Empowerment Principles event at the United Nations in New York. The room she spoke in resembled a mosh pit, with dozens of reporters, along with 20-some cameras, packed inside. The former secretary of State appeared undaunted by the barrage of questions throughout the press conference. She opened with comments about the Clinton Foundation’s work to advance women’s rights, a nod to her preceding speech and a thinly veiled suggestion to the press to focus on something other than her emails.
After reviewing which emails to send to State, Clinton said she deleted personal correspondence, which her office says totaled 31,830 messages—more than half of the total emails she sent or received during her time as secretary of State. “I chose not to keep my private, personal emails—emails about planning Chelsea’s wedding or my mother’s funeral arrangements, condolence notes to friends, as well as yoga routines, family vacations—the other things you typically find in inboxes. No one wants their personal emails made public, and I think most people understand that and respect that privacy.”
The HUFFPO has 13 questions for Hillary Clinton.
Yet in an act of defiance certain to stoke a new round of questioning, Clinton said she had no intention of turning over any of the approximately 30,000 emails she deemed “personal” for the sake of her family’s “privacy” — exchanges she said included planning for her daughter Chelsea’s wedding and her mother’s funeral, correspondence with her husband and her yoga schedule.
“Going through the emails, there were over 60,000 in total, sent and received. About half were work-related and went to the State Department, and about half were personal,” said Clinton. “I had no reason to save them, but that was my decision.
“For any government employee, it is that government employee’s responsibility to determine what is personal and what is work-related.”
When a reporter asked Clinton if she planned to allow an independent commission to examine all of the emails on her personal server, she responded with a flat — no way.
“The server contains personal communications from my husband and me,” Clinton said of the system, which was originally set up to handle Bill Clinton’s post-presidential correspondence. “And the server will remain private.”
