noise-gate,

It's what Hillary said afterwards about 4 dead Americans and at this point what does it matter that makes the whole thing, and her very suspicious. 

I don't see how anyone can think she is fit to be President or Commander-in-Chief.

l did a little research Coin Toss and l decided to read the entire transcript. This is the transcript in part.

 Johnson: Thank you, Mr. Chairman and Madam Secretary. I'd like to join my colleagues in thanking you for your service sincerely, and also appreciate the fact that you’re here testifying and glad that you’re looking in good health.

Clinton: Thank you.

Johnson: Were you fully aware in real time -- and again, I realize how big your job is and everything is erupting in the Middle East at this time -- were you fully aware of these 20 incidents that were reported in the ARB[State Department Accountability Review Board] in real time?

Clinton: I was aware of the ones that were brought to my attention. They were part of our ongoing discussion about the deteriorating threat environment in eastern Libya. We certainly were very conscious of them. I was assured by our security professionals that repairs were under way, additional security upgrades had taken place.

Johnson: Thank you. Did you see personally the cable on -- I believe it was August 12th -- specifically asking for, basically, reinforcements for the security detail that was going to be evacuating or leaving in August? Did you see that personally?

Clinton: No, sir.

Johnson: OK. When you read the ARB, it strikes me as how certain the people were that the attacks started at 9:40 Benghazi time. When was the first time you spoke to -- or have you ever spoken to -- the returnees, the evacuees? Did you personally speak to those folks?

Clinton: I‘ve spoken to one of them, but I waited until after the ARB had done its investigation because I did not want there to be anybody raising any issue that I had spoken to anyone before the ARB conducted its investigation.

Clinton: Senator, you know, when you’re in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on, number one—

Johnson: I realize that’s a good excuse.

Clinton: Well, no, it’s the fact. Number two, I would recommend highly you read both what the ARB said about it and the classified ARB because, even today, there are questions being raised. Now, we have no doubt they were terrorists, they were militants, they attacked us, they killed our people. But what was going on and why they were doing what they were doing is still unknown --

Johnson: No, again, we were misled that there were supposedly protests and that something sprang out of that -- an assault sprang out of that -- and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact, and the American people could have known that within days and they didn’t know that.

Clinton: With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator. Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. The IC has a process, I understand, going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out. But you know, to be clear, it is, from my perspective, less important today looking backwards as to why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we’ll figure out what was going on in the meantime.

Johnson: OK. Thank you, Madame Secretary.

    Stack,

    You need help Thanks for the proof that you jump to conclusions though.

    You tell me "FYI the poem you posted was written by a Marine Corp Chaplain."

    This is what it says at the end of that poem, where I posted it;

    By Father Dennis O'Brien
    Chaplain
    United States Marines

    Go read the post that poem is in. Anyone who reads that post and your FYI comment would know you are not playing with a full deck. 

     Stop being so anxious to criticize others and read the entire post before you start 'commenting' on it. 

    Quoting facts huh? So much for your "creativity". You have none. 

    I think everyone here is aware you learned a new word, 'childish', Nice self reflection. Your constant attempts to try and be the source of information that others have already posted proves you are the one who is childish. Also a troll, a creep and a moron who is not worth anymore keystrokes.

    "This is what it says at the end of that poem, where I posted it"

    Except for the part you left out. You'll never get it, but for the others reading this, the poem Coin Toss posted was written in 1988 when Reagan was President.

    "Stop being so anxious to criticize"

    But just like with that poem you posted, you're always usually dead wrong.

      I've probably over used the term "poorly educated", but when Trump says that about his supporters and flat out lies about backing W's war in Iraq, it's should be obvious his supporters will perpetuates any nonsense that enters their "poorly educated" minds.

        Double standards...it's really sooo awful what Trump said yet the WH can laugh and rub elbows

        with rappers who use trash lyrics about rape, drugs and loose women..and THAT'S  ok with Obama

        and Michele and Hillary. 

        Hillary is trying to appeal to the young voters, that's it..she will associate with anyone to get votes.

        There was an email frm Wikileaks where the campaign put down young voters - this 'friendship'

        even with the rot lyrics, appeals to the same voting class she wants to gain an edge with.

          Mainstream media finally OPENS THEIR EYES and their MOUTHS...no matter why they do it, it's that they

          ARE doing it...although the why of it is that everyone who spent months and months and months supporting

          Hillary and pushing her and glorifying her are now wondering how to fix this for their futures...the way to do

          it is finally opening their eyes and taking the gag off their mouths and reporting the absolute corruption we

          all knew about for so long...CNN, MSNBC, all of them..newspapers too...

          I believe we can stick a fork in her. She's done.

              How does a non-US citizen (((accidentally))) register to vote?   Give me a F'n break King!

              As it said, Virginia residents are automatically given a voter registration form when they get their drivers license. I can totally see new immigrants fill it out without realizing what it is or that you need to be a citizen to vote.

                1000 is more than "a bunch".

                31 of whom voted a total of 186 times. 

                http://dailysignal.com/2016/10/04/virginia-hasnt-stopped-noncitizens-from-voting-watchdog-finds/

                And that was only in 8 counties. Who knows how many in the rest of VA's 133 counties?

                So 31 voters out off almost 500,000 non-citizen residents

                Meanwhile 600,000 legal voters have been disenfranchised in Texas

                  It's the same old "preaching to the choir" because they are the only ones believing it. Just look around, when was the last time someone on this thread said they were "undecided" but someone like Coin Toss convinced them to vote for Trump?

                    So why did she yell it? 

                    And let's factor in she's a proven pathological liar, the truth isn't in her.

                    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      The Voter-ID Myth Crashes

                      Voting is a semi-sacred act of civic religion. Trust that only those eligible are determining our future as a nation is the foundation of civic peace. Voter-ID laws should be just one part of ensuring voter integrity. When Democrats resist those measures, it only feeds suspicion that they’re trying to steal elections.

                      "Trying"???  They have and still do.

                      Voter I.D. chart

                      If you don't know there's a huge difference between having a college I.D. - which can be created by some clever kid with a good printer - or a gun license - which requires an extensive background check - then you're too stupid and shouldn't be allowed to vote. 

                      NO ONE is "disenfranchised" due to Voter I.D. laws. At the very least, it weeds out those too lazy or stupid to get one.

                      IOW, your average Democrat voter.


                      A people that elect corrupt politicians, impostors, thieves and traitors are not victims...but accomplices.

                            So why did she yell it? 

                            And let's factor in she's a proven pathological liar, the truth isn't in her.

                            Coin Toss- you a smart guy, look at what Senator Johnson said- he wanted specific wording on " it was a terrorist attack or whatever" her point was 4 Americans had already been killed- whether by guys taking a stroll & deciding let's go kill folks or just an assault.. Her shouting was because Johnson was acting like a dumb** which he was.Point being if someone was shot on the Los Vegas strip- what difference would it make if it was a drive by shooting or someone coming close up to the victim? ..they were killed.

                            Come on Man.
