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.
Hillary Clinton Claims She Wants to Listen to the People and is Accessible as She Avoids Them in Keene, NH
ARE HILLARY CLINTON SUPPORTERS REALLY THAT GULLIBLE … DO YOU ACTUALLY THINK SHE WANTS TO CHAMPION THE LITTLE PEOPLE?
Her tour was billed as conversations with every day Granite-stater’s as it turned out to be quite the opposite. As her adoring fans waited in the rain in Keene, NH to hopefully see and maybe even have a chance to say something to the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee for 2016, all they got was a brief glimpse of blond hair. What is most interesting about this was that even her fans were a bit miffed at being blown off my Hillary. Her own fans who waited for Hillary were skeptical of her saying, “I mean, we’re standing out in the rain waiting for her and then all of a sudden, she’s just running from us.” America, namely those that are enamored with Hillary Clinton, she could care less about you, she is about Hillary. All the populist, common folk, champion of the little people is just BS.
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, who has vowed to be ?“accessible” to New Hampshire voters, left many of her rain-soaked supporters here high and dry when she sped in and out of a public meeting without so much as a hello.
“It should have been ?advertised that we’re not allowed to see her,” said Keene resident Michelle Isabelle.
“People are the ones that are voting for her, so if she’s running and not meeting people, then what’s the sense of coming here?” Isabelle said. “I really believe in her but I’m … actually perturbed right now.”
Clinton came here for her first stop in the Granite State since announcing her 2016 Oval Office campaign. The former U.S. secretary of state toured Whitney Brothers, a family-owned children’s furniture business, and huddled with employees for a much-publicized roundtable — but never pressed the flesh with several dozen people huddled outside.
Most of the ignored backers were also young — a key demographic for the former first lady.
“If I was running, I would want to meet the people that I’m going to be supporting and serving, get their input on what they would like to see personally. She’s running for president. She should be able to want to meet the people themselves,” said Kammara Gagne, 20, of Keene.
“I mean, we’re standing out in the rain waiting for her and then all of a sudden, she’s just running from us,” Gagne said. “It’s like, why are you running?”
This was not the first time that Hillary Clinton raced past people that were waiting to see her since she declared that she was running for president to champion the little people. As the American Spectator opines, Hillary Clinton is no Bubba … “Say what you will about Bill Clinton. He knew how to work a room & wouldn’t have kept his supporters waiting outside in the rain. He’d have taken the time to say hello and make their wait worth the while.”
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest Not Categorically Denying Clinton Foundation Donors Received Special Treatment From Sec. of State Hillary Clinton
HMM … OBAMA WHITE HOUSE NOT CATEGORICALLY DENYING CLINTON FOUNDATION DONOR AND FORMER SEC. OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON QUID PRO DOUGH SPECIAL TREATMENT …
Why would it be difficult for Barack Obama’s White House press secretary Josh Earnest to say categorically that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did not provide special treatment for those who were donors of the Clinton Foundation? One would think that would be a straight forward response of, absolutely not. However, not with the most transparent presidency in history. The Obama White House does not seem to have an answer to the accusations made from the recent book by Peter Schweizer, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich” otherwise known as Quid Pro Dough.
The new book, “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich” by Peter Schweizer, lays out the case that contributions to the foundation influenced State Department policy from 2009 to 2013, during Clinton’s tenure.
ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl asked Earnest Monday, “Can you say categorically that no donors to the Clinton Foundation – nobody paying any honoraria to former President Clinton – received any favorable treatment from this administration or from the State Department?”
Earnest talked at length about the memorandum of understanding Clinton signed when she joined the Obama administration, saying that it went above and beyond ethical guidelines, given her unique circumstances.
“I know there have been a lot of accusations made about this but not a lot of evidence,” Earnest said. “So, the president continues to be extraordinarily proud of the work Secretary Clinton did as secretary of state. For the details of some of those accusations, I’d refer you to Secretary Clinton’s campaign.”
Karl pressed, “Can you assure us absolutely no favorable treatment given to donors of the Clinton Foundation?”
Earnest repeated, “There are lots of accusations. There is no one who is marshaling the evidence for this. I don’t want to be in a position.”
Bombshell Book … “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer
HILLARY CLINTON’S QUID PRO CASH …
The New York Times is reporting on a bombshell book, “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer, that even Democrats are going to find shocking and possibly question her run for the presidency. Let’s see Hillary Clinton try and scrub this one from the public’s awareness or dodge questions regarding cash for favors while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. The book asserts that foreign entities made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees received favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return. Hmm, isn’t this called a bribe? It was not too long ago that Ron Fournier stated that the Clinton email controversy was a scandal for “Anybody With A Brain” … but stressed that the Clinton Foundation taking foreign money when she was Secretary of State was an even bigger controversy.
The book does not hit shelves until May 5, but already the Republican Rand Paul has called its findings “big news” that will “shock people” and make voters “question” the candidacy of Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer — a 186-page investigation of donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities — is proving the most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle still in its infancy.
The book, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times, asserts that foreign entities who made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees received favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return.
“We will see a pattern of financial transactions involving the Clintons that occurred contemporaneous with favorable U.S. policy decisions benefiting those providing the funds,” Mr. Schweizer writes.
If was recently that Rand Paul said there was ‘big news coming’ in weeks that will take Hillary down. I guess this was it, as opposed to all the other lies and misrepresentations from Hillary. I guess we know why Hillary scrubbed her private server that contained her emails while she was Secretary of State.
The money line comes out at the 9:00 minute mark of the video below
Sen. Rand Paul keeps referring to “big news coming” about Hillary Clinton’s foreign donations, and now it appears the big secret will be revealed in May.
Last week, in a speech to the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, the Kentucky Republican and presidential candidate said, “There’s going to be stuff coming out about the Clinton Foundation and their donations from different companies that get special approval from the secretary of state. Coming out in the next couple of weeks,” Bloomberg reported.
According to The New York Times, that “stuff” is a book titled “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer.
Schweizer investigated donations made to the Clinton Foundation by foreign entities.
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.
IS THERE ANYTHING THAT HILLARY IS CAPABLE OF TELLING THE TRUTH ON …
Hillary Clinton has stepped in it once again, this time spinning a yarn about her Faux immigrant family. Hillary has been telling the story of her immigrant grandparents because one, it sounded good and was politically expedient for her and two, well it must be true because Hillary always thought of them as immigrants. UNREAL. This woman is simply incapable of telling the truth. You mean she never thought as she is running for the highest office in the land and has a severe credibility issue with voters thought to vet the story?
This is from the same person who said she was names after Sir Edmund Hillary, the man who climbed Mt. Everest. Eventually, Hillary was forced to admit that was not true either as Hillary Diane Rodham born on October 26, 1947 and Sir Edmund Hillary did not conquer Mt Everest until May 29, 1953. Even Kool-aid drinking sycophant liberals can do that math.
She’s Just Making it Up as she Goes …
Speaking in Iowa Wednesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that all her grandparents had immigrated to the United States, a story that conflicts with public census and other records related to her maternal and paternal grandparents.
The story of her grandmother specifically immigrating is one Clinton has told before. Clinton’s sole foreign-born grandparent, Hugh Rodham Sr., immigrated as a child.
“Her grandparents always spoke about the immigrant experience and, as a result she has always thought of them as immigrants,” a Clinton spokesman told BuzzFeed News. “As has been correctly pointed out, while her grandfather was an immigrant, it appears that Hillary’s grandmother was born shortly after her parents and siblings arrived in the U.S. in the early 1880s.”
“All my grandparents, you know, came over here and you know my grandfather went to work in lace mill in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and worked there until he retired at 65. He started there when he was a teenager and just kept going,” Clinton said.
As PJ Media opines, “She has always thought of them as immigrants” — summing up the Clintons and the rest of the Mendacious Left in a nutshell. They feel something is true (mostly because it’s politically useful to them), ergo, it is true.
Maybe the real records of Hillary Clinton’s genealogy tree was saved on her private server that she scrubbed? When one cannot tell the truth on the simple things in life, imagine what type of liar they would be with the big things?
Hillary Clinton Was Asked About Use of Private Email 2 Years Ago in 12/13/12 Letter from Congressional Investigators
THERE IS NO WAY THIS WOMAN SHOULD EVER BE CONSIDERED TO BE PRESIDENT WITH A TRACK RECORD LIKE THIS …
As reported by The New York Times, Hillary Rodham Clinton was asked by congressional investigators in a December 2012 letter whether she had used a private email account while serving as secretary of state. Hillary Clinton never responded to the letter and purposely tried to hide the fact that she was in fact using a private email account. The question was asked to Mrs. Clinton in a December 13, 2012, letter from Representative Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Conveniently she never responded. Maybe she shredded that too. When Mr. Issa received a response from the State Department on March 27, all he got was a description of the department’s email policies. UNREAL.
What difference Does it Make that I Mislead congress and the American People …
Hillary Rodham Clinton was directly asked by congressional investigators in a December 2012 letter whether she had used a private email account while serving as secretary of state, according to letters obtained by The New York Times.
But Mrs. Clinton did not reply to the letter. And when the State Department answered in March 2013, nearly two months after she left office, it ignored the question and provided no response.
The query was posed to Mrs. Clinton in a Dec. 13, 2012, letter from Representative Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Mr. Issa was leading an investigation into how the Obama administration handled its officials’ use of personal email.
“Have you or any senior agency official ever used a personal email account to conduct official business?” Mr. Issa wrote to Mrs. Clinton. “If so, please identify the account used.”
How can anyone, whether they be Hillary Clinton or not, be even considered as a viable candidate to run for president when they have a track record of purposely and willfully lying to Congress and trying to evade and stonewall an investigation? As we all know now, Hillary Clinton exclusively used a (many) private email accounts while she was secretary of state, also stored them on her own private email server and has since reportedly scrubbed the hard drive. Sorry, this should 100% disqualify one from running for president.
Hillary Clinton, in Her Own Words from Benghazi-gate to Dems Defending Obamacare to Flip-Flop on Gay Marriage to Poor Clinton’s to Foreign Policy Empathizing with One’s Enemies to Email Scandal
Hillary Clinton, in Her Own Words …
America, all you have to do is listen to what Hillary has done in the past to know what she will be like as a president. Hillary Clinton is synonymous with scandal, there is no getting around it, even if the Hillary anti-free speech police try and prevent people from speaking the truth. Hillary launched the worst kept secret of 2015 this weekend and officially announced her run for president in 2016.
We certainly know that she won’t be claiming she will have the most transparent administration ever. Then again, she claims to be for the common folk and that is not true either.
The VIDEO shows clips from just some of the recent Hillary scandals as well as her opinions on foreign policy:
- Democrats Defending Obamacare
- Flip-Flop on Gay Marriage
- Hillary crying Poor
- Empathizing with One’s Enemies – Really, we are supposed to empathize and respect terrorist groups like ISIS, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and the rest?
- Email/Server Scandal – Hmm, even Richard Nixon didn’t destroy the tapes … remember what she said about GWB admin shredding docs?
Folks claims they want something new, if that is the case, how is Hillary Clinton even a consideration?
HOW SAD AND PATHETIC IS BARACK OBAMA WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF AGREEING WITH IRAN’S AYATOLLAH KHAMENEI.
Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, broke his silence on the so-called “framework” the Obama administration has been trumpeting as the basis for a nuclear accord with the Republic of Iran. Khamenei’s speech not only pulled the rug out from underneath the Obama administration, but also went after Obama and called him a liar. Khamenei accused the Obama administration of “lying” about the proposed terms, being “deceptive,” and having “devilish” intentions.
I guess Khamenei knows Obama well and has seen him operate as president. Lying, deceptive and having devilish intentions, that sounds pretty much spot on when it comes to Barack Hussein Obama. It would appear that Ayatollah Khamenei knows that Barack Obama is the Lying King as well.
Depending on proximity to the podium at which Barack Obama delivered his victory speech about an alleged “historic” nuclear deal with Iran, at the end of the April 2 speech some of the more formidable bushes in the Rose Garden had not wilted and died from the withering effects of 18 minutes of self-aggrandizement and legacy weaving by The One.
Surviving Rose bushes notwithstanding, Obama’s vaunted deal all but vanished into thin air as Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, pummeled Obama with words so harsh that one must reluctantly concede that the Ayatollah, although a congenital liar and despicable tyrant himself, has unwittingly unearthed the truth about America’s number one problem: The presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.
“Earlier today, Khamenei broke his silence on the supposed “framework” the Obama administration has been trumpeting as the basis for a nuclear accord. Khamenei’s speech pulled the rug out from underneath the administration.
Khamenei accused the Obama administration of “lying” about the proposed terms, being “deceptive,” and having “devilish” intentions, according to multiple published accounts of his speech, as well as posts on his official Twitter feed.”
