Quote from: VtaGeezer on March 11, 2015, 12:18:17 AMPolls are pretty meaningless when there's no nationally known opponent. No one's paying any attention yet except the news junkies. Webb and O'Malley are unknown outside the Beltway.

Quote from: Up All Night on March 11, 2015, 11:21:44 AMhttp://rt.com/usa/complete-emails-guccifer-clinton-554/Hillary Clinton's 'hacked' Benghazi emails: FULL RELEASEOn the back of widespread public interest RT has decided to publish in their entirety a series of memos which were allegedly sent from a one-time White House aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.The emails, which were allegedly sent by former political adviser Sidney Blumenthal to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, were forwarded to RT by a hacker using the alias â€œGuccifer.â€Guccifer was credited with hacking the AOL email account of Blumenthal last week, though the authenticity of the emails has not been verified.The purported memos appear to contain sensitive information regarding the September 11, 2012 attacks on the US diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, as well the January 2013 hostage crisis in In Amenas, Algeria.Blumenthal has been refraining from comments so far. RT reached Blumenthal's son Max, who confirmed that his father will not be making any remarks about the leak.

Quote from: NowhereInTime on March 11, 2015, 02:18:18 PMOf course, because this doesn't fit your "Hillary KNEW" garment rending narrative, does it?
Quote from: albrecht on March 11, 2015, 02:56:11 PMWhen did I say "Hillary knew?" Ok maybe I did at some point over the decades of scandals, about Whitewater, the Arkansas Prison Blood, Park-O-Meter, Lewinski, Lolita flights and trips, foreign funding for the Clinton foundation, Charlie Trie, Mr.Hsu and the other Chinese and Indonesian campaign money, etc and that she knew she was breaking the law, regulation, and procedure when using her private email server and address for government correspondence. About Benghazi itself I don't think I ever said "she knew." Yes, she knew it wasn't a youtube caused attack and likely knew about the cover-up. She might have known about whatever gun-running or CIA operations being done there and in the region but doubtful of all the details as she is a security risk (as viewed by those agencies likely.) I don't think she actually knew the attack was planned or coming- she just knew about the aftermath, the cover-up, the lies, the spin, the purges, etc
Quote from: NowhereInTime on March 11, 2015, 10:55:52 PMThis feels like an episode of Perry Mason where the guilty party weakly denies before exploding into the mea culpa.
Quote from: Juan on March 12, 2015, 10:17:40 AMRumors are that this is all about getting the Democrats to draft Mrs. Obama as their candidate.
Quote from: Juan on March 13, 2015, 10:44:10 AMI'm interested in learning how you know this.
Quote from: 136 or 142 on March 14, 2015, 04:32:04 AMThis is deeply ironic given that now that Miller has devolved into, as Richard Belzer put it, "a fascist teabagger", he doesn't believe in Pi.
Quote from: VtaGeezer on March 14, 2015, 10:08:31 AMBeing 2nd banana to Bill O'Reilly at the traveling cult gatherings is his best meal ticket since SNL flushed him.
Quote from: albrecht on March 14, 2015, 10:12:55 AMIt amazed me that people actually pay and show up to those events (O'Reilly, Beck, Obama, etc.) I can't quite fathom it. It is one thing to be a captive audience (say your driving in a rural area and the only channel you can pick up is AM and their show) but to actively travel, buy tickets, and seek them out? Bizarre. Pay to listen to political rantings or some guy asking for your support or money?
Quote from: VtaGeezer on March 14, 2015, 11:37:18 AMI didn't call their shows cult gatherings facetiously. The Fox "News" cast and all the radio demagogues all rake in big money from speaking performances. They don't have viewers/listeners, they have followers who are usually more zealous about their ideology than their religion. We have acquaintances who went to an O'Reilly/Miller show in LA; they paid over $150/seat for the balcony, and they buy all his superficial ghost-written "books" in hardcover.
Quote from: albrecht on March 15, 2015, 04:50:09 PMIt is the NY Post so take with a grain of salt but it would make sense. Hillary and Obama still have a lot of bad blood from the initial primaries (remember how Obama operatives treated Hillary and her supporters and then, more recently, how Hillary has made some statement criticizing Obama etc.)http://nypost.com/2015/03/14/obama-adviser-behind-leak-of-hillary-clintons-e-mail-scandal/and here is Obama joking about Billary (and even rubbing it in to the American people regarding his mysterious and foreign background.)http://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/235748-obama-jokes-about-hillary-emails-at-white-tie-dinner
