Hillary Clinton Used Personal Email Account at State Department … Possibly Breaking Federal Records Act

HILLARY CLINTON, YOU GOT STATE DEPT EMAIL

Hillary Clinton has not even announced that she is running for president in 2016, but the scandals are mounting. The New York Times is reporting that Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state. How is this possible that a Secretary of State could be allowed to use private email and no one noticed at the time? With all the emails that Hillary sent to conduct government business no one noticed the Hotmail account? So how do we know that all of Hillary’s emails are accounted for and any FOIA requests are legitimate?

Hillary Clinton_what

Who knew I was supposed to use a govt email account?

Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record.

Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act.

It was only two months ago, in response to a new State Department effort to comply with federal record-keeping practices, that Mrs. Clinton’s advisers reviewed tens of thousands of pages of her personal emails and decided which ones to turn over to the State Department. All told, 55,000 pages of emails were given to the department. Mrs. Clinton stepped down from the secretary’s post in early 2013.

Is this what America needs, another president who has no understanding of transparency? HARDLY. Sorry, this woman has way too much baggage to even think of running for president. America needs to heal, not go down a further path of destruction.

I know, Benghazi, far right wing conspiracy, no nothing Senator, do nothing Secretary of State, taking money from foreign countries while acting as Sec. of State … What difference does it make.

WHY THE DOUBLE STANDARD … Hillary Clinton Lied Too About Taking Sniper Fire … Do We Hold News Anchors to a Higher Standard Than a Presidential Wannabe?

HOW GREAT IS THE BELOW VIDEO … NBC’S LYIN’ BRIAN WILLIAMS COVERING A NEWS STORY ABOUT LIAR HILLARY CLINTON AND HER BOSNIA “SNIPER FIRE” LIE …

Can you say double standard? How is it that we hold a news anchor to a higher standard than that of a presidential wannabe? The below VIDEO is a classic and should have already been made into a 2016 political ad to run against Hillary Clinton. Remember when Hillary Clinton lied about being caught in “sniper fire in 1995″ during her 2008 presidential campaign when she got off  a plane in Bosnia? But it gets even worse for Hillary Clinton, her own bubby, Bubba Clinton blamed her Bosnia mistake on age and fatigue. OUCH! Bill Clinton said back in 2008, “some of them [women] will forget something when their tired at 11 o’ clock at night.” I wonder how former President Bill Clinton feels about that same comment in 2015, seven years later?

Even though coverage of the Clinton fib was dying down, Clinton spoke in defense of his wife, bringing back up the subject multiple times on the campaign trail. He said that his wife’s age might have played a part in the error while as she fought Barack Obama, a much younger and more energetic opponent in.

We are still waiting for the MSM to call Hillary Clinton out and go after her lie in the same manner that they did with Brian Williams. And we are still waiting. I know, I know … “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE.”

Sharyl Attkisson: Why Did Hillary Survive a Brian Williams-like Tale?

Emmy Award-winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who covered the story of Hillary Clinton’s lie about being shot at in Bosnia, says she can’t understand how the former secretary of state weathered the scandal while NBC News anchor Brian Williams may not.

“To me, part of the irony is if Brian Williams isn’t able to survive it — that we think it’s important enough when somebody gives this kind of story that he would lose his career — yet we didn’t care enough to have it matter that much with someone who became our secretary of state,” Attkisson said Monday on “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax TV.

“[A person] we relied on for honest answers and truths in the aftermath of Benghazi and so on.”

Sorry Hillary, no one, no one would ever misremember being shot at by a sniper …

Hillary Clinton LIAR Bosnia

Click HERE or on Pic to watch interview and VIDEO of the lack of sniper fire on the tarmac

Video shows tarmac welcome, no snipers. … Poilitifact rules Hillary Clinton’s pantsuit on fire.

How is it that we would hold NBC new anchor Brian Williams to a higher standard? Seriously, does one who aspires to the the President of the United States get a free pass because she is Hillary Clinton even though she has pretty much claimed the same lie as Brian Williams? Where is the MSM clamoring for her head?

During an introduction to a foreign policy speech on Iraq on March 17, 2008, Sen. Hillary Clinton reminisced about her days as first lady and a trip to Tuzla, Bosnia, she made in March 1996.

“I remember landing under sniper fire. 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.”

But that’s not what happened, as demonstrated by CBS News video that shows Clinton arriving on the tarmac under no visible duress, and greeting a child who offers her a copy of a poem. The Washington Post Factchecker also turned a skeptical eye on Clinton’s comments, reporting that a review of more than 100 news stories from the time documented no security threats to the First Lady.

CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who covered Clinton on the Bosnia visit, wrote of her memories of the trip : “To be sure, it was not the ‘safest’ trip for a first lady to take: there were serious risks in traveling to Bosnia, even for the president’s wife under the vigilant protection of the U.S. military. It took some guts for her to go. But I don’t recall, and did not note, any close calls on this trip with sniper fire or any other dangers. “

Immediately after the speech that day, a reporter asked Clinton about remarks from others on the trip who suggested the trip was for photo opportunities rather than foreign policy and she stood by her account of sniper fire. “There was no greeting ceremony, and we basically were told to run to our cars. Now, that is what happened,” she said.

But she retracted the remarks a week later, telling the Philadelphia Daily News editorial board on March 24, 2008, that she “misspoke,” correcting herself to say she had been told there was a threat of sniper fire in the area. The next day she told reporters, “So I made a mistake. That happens. It shows I’m human, which for some people is a revelation.”

NBC’s Brian Williams Suspended for 6 Months Without Pay for Faux Iraq News Story

NBC NEWS MOTTO: IT AIN’T A LIE UNLESS YOU GET CAUGHTBRIAN WILLIAMS SUSPENDED.

The Politico is reporting that effective immediately NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams has been suspended for six months without pay for his faux Iraq war news story in 2003. Gee, it only took over 10 years for NBC to act against Williams, even though it was known by many at NBC that it was a false story. Not until Iraq war vets finally called Williams on his BS did NBC finally act. That, and a bad attempt at an apology. NBC suit, Steve Burke, the CEO of NBC Universal, stated that his actions “are inexcusable and this suspension is severe and appropriate.” REALLY? This is a PR nightmare for NBC and they are just looking to make this story go away. Is Williams finished at NBC News? Many think so and that this is just a behind the scene way to do so. What happens when Williams stories of seeing floating bodies in the French Quarter from his hotel following Hurricane Katrina and him looking down the tube of an RPG are investigated?

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams has been suspended for six months without pay following his false claims about an experience he had during the Iraq war, NBC News president Deborah Turness announced Tuesday night.

“We have decided today to suspend Brian Williams as Managing Editor and Anchor of NBC Nightly News for six months. The suspension will be without pay and is effective immediately,” Turness wrote in a memo to staff. “We let Brian know of our decision earlier today. Lester Holt will continue to substitute Anchor the NBC Nightly News.”

In addition to Williams’ false claims about Iraq, Turness said she the Comcast/NBCUniversal brass had “concerns about comments that occurred outside NBC News while Brian was talking about his experiences in the field.”

NBC Universal CEO Steve Burke released the following statement:

“This has been a painful period for all concerned and we appreciate your patience while we gathered the available facts. By his actions, Brian has jeopardized the trust millions of Americans place in NBC News. His actions are inexcusable and this suspension is severe and appropriate. Brian’s life’s work is delivering the news. I know Brian loves his country, NBC News and his colleagues. He deserves a second chance and we are rooting for him. Brian has shared his deep remorse with me and he is committed to winning back everyone’s trust.”

CNN’s Dan Abrams: ‘They are worried about other stuff coming out and this is their way of punting.”

Amid False Iraq War Story, NBC News Anchor ‘Lyin’”Brian Williams Cancelling Appearance with David Letterman

FUNNY WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE TRUTH IS MADE PUBLIC …

In the wake of the scandal and contravention that surrounds NBC News nightly news anchor Brian Williams, he has canceled his scheduled appearance with David Letterman. So, not only is Brian Willaims taking a hiadeous away from NBC News, he is also going into hiding from all public appearance. What’s the matter Lyin’ Brian Williams, you mean you are not going to appear on Letterman’s show and rehash the lie of your Iraq helicopter experience to make you look all big and important? You mean you are not going to interject yourself into the story as if you were ever in danger? Sorry, but in my eyes and to many, what you did in lying about what happened to have people think you were brave, is no different that someone wearing a military uniform and medals who have never served in the military just trying to get attention.

Brian Williams is backing out of his scheduled appearance on CBS’s “Late Show with David Letterman,” citing the uncertainty about when he’ll be back at his anchor desk.

But until Sunday afternoon he was still scheduled to show up for his date with Letterman on Thursday.

The sudden change reflects the chaotic situation behind the scenes at NBC News and among Williams’ representatives.

On Sunday morning, a spokeswoman for the “Late Show” said there had been no change to the plans for Williams to appear on Letterman’s show.

 

WOW, this might be a first in all my years of blogging, never has Hot Air been more wrong and have I disagreed more … ‘Should we really be happy to see Brian Williams go’? The answer is “YES!!!” Sorry, when one steals honor from others, that is a big deal. When some one puts them-self falsely in the same danger as those who actually are put in danger, that is a big deal. And when it looks like Williams lied too about Hurricane Katrina, which was a concerted effort to make the GWB administration response look bad, that too is an issue. Williams was tasked with reporting the news, not making it up!

In the end, Williams’ lies seem to be more along the lines of your crazy, drunken Uncle Mel who shows up for holiday dinners and tells vastly expanded fishing tales. [...]

I’m not excusing what Williams did in any fashion. And if he falls, he clearly brought it on himself. I suppose all I’m saying here is that the mistakes Brian Williams made are more along the lines of self aggrandizement than some nefarious effort to hide or distort the actual news. It’s a human trait which more of us can likely relate to than other crimes, and I guess I’m just feeling a bit of sympathy for him this morning.

EXIT QUESTION: Over/Under … how many days does Brian Williams have left as Nightly News anchor at NBC News?

Gallup CEO Jim Clifton … The Official Obama 5.6% Unemployment Rate Amounts to a Big Lie … Tells CNBC He Might “Suddenly Disappear” for Telling the Truth About Unemployment Lie

Well, if Gallup CEO suddenly disappears we will know why …

Gallup CEO Jim Clifton says during an interview with CNBC that he is worried he might “suddenly disappear” and not make it home that evening if he disputed the accuracy of what the U.S. government is reporting as unemployed Americans. How sad is it that many would not put it past the Obama administration to actually retaliate against an American citizen for speaking the truth?

The CNBC interview came one day after Clifton had penned a gutsy opinion piece on Gallup’s web site, defiantly calling the government’s 5.6 percent unemployment figure “The Big Lie” in the article’s headline. His appearance on CNBC was apparently to walk back the “lie” part of the title and reframe the jobs data as just hopelessly deceptive.

Clifton stated the following on CNBC:

“I think that the number that comes out of BLS [Bureau of Labor Statistics] and the Department of Labor is very, very accurate. I need to make that very, very clear so that I don’t suddenly disappear. I need to make it home tonight.”

But after making that opening comment in case he suddenly goes missing, Jim Clifton went on to eviscerate the legitimacy of the cheerful spin given to the unemployment data by the Obama White House and liberal MSMS, stating to CNBC viewers that the percent of full time jobs in this country as a percent of the adult population “is the worst it’s been in 30 years.” Otherwise known as Obama’s Big Lie. Then again, hasn’t the entire Barack Obama presidency been one big lie and scandal after another?

Gallup CEO: 13 Million Jobs Lost – Only 3 Million Created Under Obama

Jim Clifton, Gallup CEO – The Big Lie: 5.6% Unemployment:

Here’s something that many Americans — including some of the smartest and most educated among us — don’t know: The official unemployment rate, as reported by the U.S. Department of Labor, is extremely misleading.

Right now, we’re hearing much celebrating from the media, the White House and Wall Street about how unemployment is “down” to 5.6%. The cheer-leading for this number is deafening. The media loves a comeback story, the White House wants to score political points and Wall Street would like you to stay in the market.

None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed. That’s right. While you are as unemployed as one can possibly be, and tragically may never find work again, you are not counted in the figure we see relentlessly in the news — currently 5.6%. Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast “falling” unemployment.

Unemployment_The Big Lie1

Unemployment_The Big Lie2

There’s another reason why the official rate is misleading. Say you’re an out-of-work engineer or healthcare worker or construction worker or retail manager: If you perform a minimum of one hour of work in a week and are paid at least $20 — maybe someone pays you to mow their lawn — you’re not officially counted as unemployed in the much-reported 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

Yet another figure of importance that doesn’t get much press: those working part time but wanting full-time work. If you have a degree in chemistry or math and are working 10 hours part time because it is all you can find — in other words, you are severely underemployed — the government doesn’t count you in the 5.6%. Few Americans know this.

There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.

Embattled NBC News Anchor Brian Williams Taking Leave of Absence Amid Iraq Faux Helicopter Story … Is This the Beginning of the End?

 THE END MAY BE NEAR … NBC NEWS ANCHOR BRIAN WILLIAMS STEPPING ASIDE TEMPORARILY FROM NBC NIGHTLY NEWS …

Lying Brian Williams is said to be stepping aside from his anchor position at NBC’s Nightly News, but is this really just the beginning of the end? Williams’ fabricated and continually embellished Iraq helicopter story has gotten him in a world of trouble. even though he had been told to stop telling the faux news account by people who knew the story was made up and false, he did not. Williams wrote a memo to the NBC News staff, “As managing editor of NBC Nightly News, I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days, and Lester Holt has kindly agreed to sit in for me to allow us to adequately deal with this issue.  Upon my return, I will continue my career-long effort to be worthy of the trust of those who place their trust in us.”

UPON YOUR RETURN? Don’t count on it. It is beginning to sound like all Brian Williams does is make stuff up to a made for TV movie, rather than the truth of what actually happened. Helicopter hard landings in Iraq, taking enemy fire,  looking down the very tube of an RPG and even seeing floating bodies post Katrina, Williams may want to write Hollywood movie scripts, rather than report the news, because it would appear he had an issue reporting facts.

Brian Williams said Saturday that he will step aside as anchor of his nightly NBC News broadcast for “several days” as a result of the controversy generated by his comments about his reporting during the Iraq war and Hurricane Katrina.

With his troubles mounting by the day, Williams said he had decided to take himself off his signature newscast, “Nightly News with Brian Williams,” while NBC looks into statements he has made about his work in interviews stretching back more than a decade.

“As managing editor of NBC Nightly News, I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days, and Lester Holt has kindly agreed to sit in for me to allow us to adequately deal with this issue,” Williams wrote in a memo to the NBC News staff that was made public by the network. “Upon my return, I will continue my career-long effort to be worthy of the trust of those who place their trust in us.”

Williams, 55, has been under fire since Wednesday after he apologized to a group of Iraq war veterans for apparently exaggerating the danger he and an NBC News crew faced while covering the start of the war in 2003. Williams had described coming under rocket and gunfire while traveling with U.S. soldiers in a military helicopter that was damaged and forced to land. The soldiers disputed Williams’s account, saying his aircraft had not been fired upon, prompting Williams to recant the story.

From Ace of Spades comes the below VIDEO, Midnight Brian Williams Update: Williams Claimed to Have Looked Down the Very Tube of the RPG That Shot Down the Lead Copter in 2007. Williams may want to remember stories of credibility, not ones that make him sound like he is some brave soul that has escaped death. In the video below he goes on to spew more BS about all these people who died in the Super Dome following Hurricane Katrina. Hmm, I guess we can’t interview those folks to see if Williams is telling the truth, they are dead. Or so he says. Williams says, “We don’t have problems going to dangerous places, a lot of us consider that our jobs.” There lies the lie.

“It gets me to thinking, I’ve been very lucky the way my life has turned out, I’ve been very lucky to have survived a few things that I’ve been involved in, at a perception a few minutes ago, I was remembering something I tend to forget, the war with Hezballah in Israel, a few years back, where there were Katuyshka rockets passing just beneath the helicopter I was riding in. A few years before that, you go back to Iraq, and I looked down the tube of an RPG that had been fired at us and it hit the chopper in front of ours.”

Best article name, from the NY Times, ‘Anchors Aweigh’.

UPDATE I: Good grief, now there are questions whether Brian Williams reported stories following Hurricane Katrina truthfully. On Friday, NBC network officials said an internal review had been launched to vet Williams’s statements.  His comments about his work covering Hurricane Katrina in 2005 are also part of the review. It would appear Brian Williams was full of crap in his reporting on Katrina as well.

NBC News launched an internal investigation Friday into statements made by its lead anchor, Brian Williams, about his reporting from Iraq in 2003, as well as stories he told about his award-winning coverage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

The investigation, confirmed by NBC officials, represents a change in the network’s attitude toward its popular anchor only a day after senior managers appeared to have accepted his apology for misstating the facts surrounding his excursion on a military helicopter while reporting on the start of the Iraq war nearly 12 years ago.

Williams and NBC won a Peabody Award for reporting on Katrina’s impact on New Orleans and its surroundings. Williams had recently ascended to anchor, and he flew to report live on the Category 5 storm a few days before it struck Louisiana on Aug. 29, 2005. Williams reported daily from the city’s French Quarter and its convention center and Superdome, where residents sought shelter.

Tom Brokaw Wants Lying Brian Williams Fired from NBC

Can Lyin’ Brian survive?

As reported at the New York Post, the former NBC nightly news anchor who was at the helm when Brian Williams originally reported the fictions helicopter story taking fire, wants lying Brian Williams fired. Brian Williams was forced to apologize, but may have matters worse. According to accounts, Tom Brokaw and former NBC News President Steve Capus knew this was a false story for a long time and have been extremely uncomfortable with it. Obviously, Williams did not heed their warning and never stopped telling the lie as the fish tale got bigger and bigger. So let’s understand this, the media knew all along that Brian Williams lied about this story and did not do a damn thing? Is it any wonder why the MSM has zero credibility. Will NBC do anything to Williams, who knows? This is the same media company that has no issue hiring the likes of Al. Sharpton.

Just curious, how does some one sit at the NBC nightly news desk and have no credibility?

New York Post:

You know you’re in trouble when Tom Brokaw is out for your blood.

NBC’s most revered journalist is furious that Brian Williams is still in the anchor chair after he sheepishly admitted he hadn’t traveled on a helicopter hit by enemy fire.

“Brokaw wants Williams’ head on a platter,” an NBC source said. “He is making a lot of noise at NBC that a lesser journalist or producer would have been immediately fired or suspended for a false report.”

According to the insider source, NBC brass hasn’t been talking to lower-level employees about the situation, leaving people in a panic.

NBC bosses don’t understand how serious this is. Nobody in a leadership position is talking to the troops. Nobody has addressed it,” the source said.

One longtime NBC employee who has worked with Williams on several occasions had a few dirty words to describe the celebrated anchor, calling him a “real pompous piece of s–t.”

“He’s an a–hole,” he fumed. “He’s not a journalist. He’s a reader.”

“Oh, the fireworks that are going off inside,” he said. “It’s embarrassing. He’s the face on NBC. He’s a liar.

“Everyone knew it.”

On Friday, Brokaw responded to reports that he wanted Williams axed.

UPDATE I: Tom Brokaw claims he did not call for Williams’ head.

Brokaw pushed back against a New York Post story claiming he wanted Williams fired, but notably didn’t offer his own statement of support.

“I have neither demanded nor suggested Brian be fired,” Brokaw said in an email to The Huffington Post. “His future is up to Brian and NBC News executive

NBC News Anchor Brian Williams Recants False War Iraq Story After Soldiers Protest … Apologizes for Misremembering Being in Helicopter that was “Forced down after being hit by an RPG”

Brian Williams, LIAR: THINGS YOU DON’T MISREMEMBER … YOUR WEDDING DAY, THE BIRTH OF A CHILD AND BEING SHOT DOWN IN IRAQ AFTER TAKING FIRE AND BEING HIT BY AN RPG …

NBC News anchor Brian Williams has egg on his face and lost much credibility after he was forced to recant his story that he’d been on a helicopter that was “forced down in Iraq after being hit by an RPG.” The incident was supposed to have happened on March 24, 2003. A Chinook helicopter was forced down by enemy fire. But one important fact was not true, Williams was not aboard. For years you have told this lie to make it appear like you were some brave individual who took fire in a time of war. I am sure Mr. Williams that it was great conversation at cocktail parties.

But servicemen who met Williams that day remember a completely different story.

They claim that Williams’ helicopter arrived an hour after a different Chinook helicopter was shot down by enemy fire. They confirm that NBC News’ helicopter was forced to land, but only because of an impending sandstorm.

Mike O’Keeffe, the door gunner on the downed helicopter, told military newspaper Stars and Stripes he remembered seeing Williams tell the false version of the story as far back in 2003. “Over the years it faded, and then to see it last week it was — I can’t believe he is still telling this false narrative.”

 

NBC Brian Williams Liar

click HERE or on pic to watch VIDEO

NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams admitted Wednesday he was not aboard a helicopter hit and forced down by RPG fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a false claim that has been repeated by the network for years.

Williams repeated the claim Friday during NBC’s coverage of a public tribute at a New York Rangers hockey game for a retired soldier that had provided ground security for the grounded helicopters, a game to which Williams accompanied him. In an interview with Stars and Stripes, he said he had misremembered the events and was sorry.

The admission came after crew members on the 159th Aviation Regiment’s Chinook that was hit by two rockets and small arms fire told Stars and Stripes that the NBC anchor was nowhere near that aircraft or two other Chinooks flying in the formation that took fire. Williams arrived in the area about an hour later on another helicopter after the other three had made an emergency landing, the crew members said.

“I would not have chosen to make this mistake,” Williams said. “I don’t know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to conflate one aircraft with another.”

Williams told his Nightly News audience that the erroneous claim was part of a “bungled attempt” to thank soldiers who helped protect him in Iraq in 2003. “I made a mistake in recalling the events of 12 years ago,” Williams said. “I want to apologize.”

The sick and pathetic aspect of this entire story is that individuals Command Sgt. Major Tim Terpak are heroes, not for fictitiously, saving the lives of liars like Brian Williams and the MSM who feel the need to interject themselves in war, when they were not. No one needs to embellish what men and women did and still do in our military who served in war wherever they may have served. Command Sgt. Major Tim Terpak is a hero, you Brian Williams are a zero. Idiots like Brian Williams do a disservice to our brave military.

WATCH BELOW THE BRIAN WILLIAMS LIE

UPDATE I: NBC News’ Brian Williams admits he wasn’t on aircraft in Iraq.

In a comment on NBC Nightly News’ Facebook page, under the video of Williams’ coverage of the tribute, Flight Engineer Lance Reynolds wrote “Sorry dude, I don’t remember you being on my aircraft. I do remember you walking up about an hour after we had landed to ask me what had happened. Then I remember you guys taking back off in a different flight of Chinooks from another unit and heading to Kuwait to report your ‘war story’ to the Nightly News. The whole time we were still stuck in Iraq trying to repair the aircraft and pulling our own Security.”

Reynolds told Stars and Stripes, “It was something personal for us that was kind of life-changing for me. I’ve know how lucky I was to survive it. It felt like a personal experience that someone else wanted to participate in and didn’t deserve to participate in.”

UPDATE II: It would appear that even in his apology, Brian Williams is Still lying.

President Barack Obama Adviser Valerie Jarrett Confronted Over Unequal Pay for Women in the Obama White House (VIDEO)

WAR ON WOMEN … OBAMA WHITE HOUSE EDITION.

Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett confronted on ‘The Morning Joe’ over the issue as to why women in the Obama White House received unequal pay from men. Last night during his SOTU, Barack Obama claimed he wanted equak pay for men and women for the same job. Jarrett must have been taken aback by such a probing question from MSNBC, so she did what Obama minions do when asked a question they don’t like, LIE. Jarrett defended the White House’s pay policies Wednesday morning. However, the truth is women are not,  salary data released by the White House last year showed that the average female employee earns about $78,400 while the average male employee earns about $88,600, a 13% gap. Basic math will tell you that Valerie Jarrett earns 4 Pinocchio’s for this one. But what would you expect from these hypocritical liars.

Of course, nothing helps families make ends meet like higher wages. That’s why this Congress still needs to pass a law that makes sure a woman is paid the same as a man for doing the same work. Really. It’s 2015. It’s time. We still need to make sure employees get the overtime they’ve earned.

The Weekly Standard:

I also think it’s just a fact that laws exist on the books today, and if a woman is being discriminated against because of her gender, she should use the full extent of that law. I am struck by the fact the president hasn’t really led in this regard. He’s not paying women equally by his own measures in his own White House. And I am also struck by the fact that the single greatest impediment to equal pay for equal work is this seniority system, which pays not on merit, not on performance, but on time and grade. And who is it who supports the seniority system? Unions, government bureaucracies, the vast majority of constituencies that the Democratic party represents and who support the Democratic party. So why wouldn’t the White House take on the seniority system and say let’s pay women by merit and by their results? Because based on my own experience, in those scenarios, women will be paid equally.”

Jarrett responded with a whopper: “Let’s unpack your question a little bit. So, first of all the first question and last question, let’s weave them together: in the White House women do earn equal pay for equal work.”

Obama White House Says, It’s Fair to Say We Were Wrong on Paris Unity Rally … WH Caught with Its Pants Down or Purposeful Decision?

Sorry Barack Obama, this is a little bigger than, oh sorry, my bad.

The Obama administration is in full spin CYA mode in the wake of the outrage of U.S President failing to attend the “Unity” march with numerous other world leaders as he opted to stay home instead and watch football. Quick, get the PR machine out there to lie to the media and people. White House spokesman Josh Earnest did his best to spin his way through the disastrous visuals and symbolism of Barack Obama or any other high level US leader being present for the march against radical Islam. White House spokesman Earnest said, “It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there.” What ever do you mean, you mean sending no one of any importance what-so-ever was wrong? None of you could have figured this out in advance? Sorry, but that is BS. Obama told us all in the past that Bin Laden was dead and terrorism was on the run. To suddenly acknowledge that France just had their own 9-11 moment would go against Obama’s down playing of terrorism.

Barack Obama could not be reached for comment he was too busy

The White House said Monday that it made a mistake in not sending President Obama or a top administration official to the weekend unity march in Paris, a rare concession that it had botched the optics of an important international event.

“It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at his briefing, which was dominated by questions about the march.

“We want to send a clear message, even in a symbolic context like this one, that the American people stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our allies in France,” said Earnest. “And sending a high-level, highly visible senior administration official with a high profile to that march would have done that.”

He dodged questions about who was responsible for the decision to have the U.S. be represented by the U.S. ambassador to France, saying only that it was a staff-level call the president was not personally involved in.

So, some how Barack Obama and his minions could see the importance of sending people to Ferguson, Missouri and to the funeral of an individual who robbed a store and assaulted a police officer, but they could not see the importance of supporting one of America’s greatest allies in France and 40 world leaders coming together in a show of solidarity against radical Islam.

UPDATE I: The Politico – White House was out of step as Paris march grew.

The JV Presidency.

Wait, White House aides said Sunday, as they saw coverage come in of the anti-terrorism march in Paris — Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is there? Jordan’s King Abdullah? The presidents of Gabon, Benin, Niger? Not to mention the leaders of the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy and other major allies — and even Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov?

Somehow an event that the French didn’t even announce until Friday had quickly gathered momentum, drawing about three dozen foreign leaders to Paris to express their outrage at the killings of French citizens at a satire magazine and a Jewish supermarket last week. America’s representative, Ambassador Jane Hartley, looked a little out of place.

White House aides were so caught off guard by the march’s massive size and attention that they hadn’t even asked President Barack Obama if he wanted to go.
