    Chuck Hagel Breaks His Silence A glimpse inside the Obama inner circle's culture of deceit and delusion. December 22, 2015 Ari Lieberman I've never been a big fan of former Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, but one cannot help but feel some sympathy for a man who had to endure two years of fecklessness, incompetence and back-stabbing in the Obama White House. It would have been enough to drive any sane person stark, raving mad. Hagel announced his resignation in November 2014 (he stayed on a bit longer until replaced by Ashton Carter), but the brutal reality is that...

    Former Sec. of State Condoleezza Rice has no recollection of a conversation at a 2009 dinner party where Hillary Clinton reportedly claims that Gen. Colin Powell advised her to use a personal email account. Rice’s inability to recall the conversation makes her the second person to publicly undercut Clinton’s claim. Both NBC News and The New York Times reported last week that Clinton told the FBI that Powell offered her the email advice during a dinner party at former Sec. of State Madeleine Albright’s home. Rice and another Henry Kissinger, another former secretary of state, were present at the dinner...

During a conversation at the Aspen Ideas Summit moderated by The Atlantic‘s David Bradley, Rice was asked if she believed former State Department employee Anne Marie Slaughter’s famous argument (penned in The Atlantic) that career women could not have it all.

    Speaking to graduates of Florida International University, White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice lamented on Wednesday that there are too many white people in top government positions. The lack of diversity, she added, puts our nation at risk because they all think alike. Referring to criticism that the U.S. national security workforce is “white, male and Yale,” Ms. Rice told the graduates, “In the halls of power, in the faces of our national security leaders, America is still not fully reflected.”

An order filed in U.S. District Court in Cleveland said the city will pay out $3 million this year and $3 million the next. There was no admission of wrongdoing in the settlement. Family attorney Subodh Chandra called the settlement historic but added: "The resolution is nothing to celebrate because a 12-year-old child needlessly lost his life."

    Appearances by top presidential advisers Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes before the House Benghazi committee earlier this year weren’t always a sure thing – the testimony was only secured after a secret meeting in January between panel head Trey Gowdy and White House officials, a source tells Fox News. The source familiar with the negotiations said the White House originally said no to the request to have National Security Adviser Rice and deputy Rhodes speak to the committee probing the 2012 Benghazi attacks. But Gowdy, R-S.C., stepped in to personally negotiate for their appearances at the secret meeting, held late

    “For the past 10 years, bread has been under attack.” Professor Zhou Weibiao, a food scientist at the National University of Singapore, isn’t wrong. According to current nutritional thinking, white bread is digested too fast, spikes blood sugar levels and is linked to obesity. In short, it’s the enemy of healthy eaters. Weibiao’s answer to this problem? He’s invented a purple bread. Rich in cancer-fighting antioxidants, digested 20 percent slower than regular white bread and made entirely of natural compounds, it could be the first superfood of the baked goods world.

    Rep. Trey Gowdy's Benghazi committee appears to have had a very productive meeting with national security adviser Susan Rice this week. Following her testimony Wednesday, the chairman said they have made "enormous progress" in their investigation. No one is soon to forget how Rice went on several talk shows in 2012 repeating the lie that the Benghazi terror attack was the result of an offensive YouTube video. Congressional Republicans were so frustrated with her repeating the same false talking points that they asked for her resignation. Now, she was finally called before the Benghazi Select Committee, and from what it...

    For months the Obama administration has argued the issue of Iran sponsoring terrorism around the world and the regime's "bad behavior" are separate issues from their nuclear program. As part of the nuclear deal reached and announced by President Obama last week, Iran will have access to $150 billion in funds that were formerly frozen and unavailable to the regime. Critics of the plan have warned that a new influx of cash with little stipulation will allow Iran to use that money to further fund terrorism through Hezbollah and Hamas in the region and around the world. Up until now,...

    The White House has publicly signaled that Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel's abrupt resignation stemmed from concerns about his ability to handle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, but part of what alienated Hagel from from Obama's inner circle was the defense chief's resistance to directives to whittle down the prisoner population at Guantanamo Bay, sources familiar with the situation said. When Obama began pushing last year to reinvigorate the process of closing Guantanamo, White House aides repeatedly urged Hagel to sign off on transfers of detainees who’d long been cleared for release.

    Thursday on CNN's "The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer," Obama White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice said the president's actions against ISIS are "very different" from America being at war. Rice said, "I don't know whether you want to call it a war or sustained counterterrorism campaign. I think, frankly, this is a counterterrorism operation that will take time. It will be sustained. We will not have American combat forces on the ground fighting as we did in Iraq and Afghanistan which is what I think the American people think of when they think of a war. So I...

    Here's the thing ... A video is leaked to the NFL office. A leaked voice mail confirms its arrival but that AP report also confirms the delivery was unofficial. Recipient says "it's bad." OK, so the video was seen. If we take all that at face value, that's what we know and the next is supposition. Recipient of video gets in touch with office counsel. "Hey, Mr. Lawyer, I just got this elevator video of Ray Rice. It's bad." "Really, where did it come from? Do we know it is real?" "Well, no, but he says he is a cop."...

    The San Francisco 49ers have suspended team radio broadcaster Ted Robinson two games for remarks he made about Ray Rice and domestic violence this week. While talking about Rice during a segment on KNBR-AM on Monday, Robinson had this to say about Rice's wife Janay, "How does she marry him after that? How does she go in front of Goodell? That's pathetic to me," Robinson said.

    As so many in the general public have witnessed, I watched the video involving Ray Rice and his fiance (she is now his wife), Janay Palmer, and the assault which occurred at an Atlantic City, New Jersey casino. There are two facts which I find disturbing surrounding this case. After viewing the video I read some of the comments in response to the footage. A number of ppl actually blamed Ms. Palmer for the altercation, or stated that she "had it coming" due to her supposed drunkenness. How they came to the conclusion that Ms. Palmer was drunk is beyond...

    On his Tuesday radio show, Rush Limbaugh said that the justified outrage over Ray Rice's video in which he knocks his then-fiancee unconscious in an elevator proves that feminism is "artificial" and that there are legitimate differences between men and women.

    Football's Ray Rice will probably get to keep about $25 million that he's been paid, even after he was cut by the Baltimore Ravens in the wake of domestic abuse revelationssnip ... Rice signed a 5-year, $35 million deal in 2012, $15 million of which was a signing bonus. He got another $7 million bonus in 2013, and also collected $3 million in salary over the first two years of the contract. But almost none of that $25 million can be clawed back by the Ravens or the NFL, according to Mike Ginnitti, managing editor of Spotrac, a Web site...

    The Ray Rice story isn't close to being over. Although the Baltimore Ravens released Rice and the NFL suspended him indefinitely following the release of the bombshell video of Rice striking his wife in an Atlantic City hotel elevator, TMZ claims it has more to the story, via Philly.com. TMZ's Harvey Levin appeared on Fox5 Philly and said that he plans to release information that the NFL knew about and saw the Rice video (which the league has denied) but that it ignored it.
  • Did the NFL indefinitely suspend Ray Rice because they saw the video or because we saw it?

    Did the NFL suspend Ray Rice indefinitely after he was given an initial 2 game suspension because A.) they saw the video inside the elevator, or B.) because we saw the inside-the-elevator video? If it is because of A, then why did they formulate a 6 game suspension to be followed by banning for a second offense and not apply the 6 game rule to Ray Rice? If this is because the inside-the-elevator video surfaced, then will the NFL have a system for those who are caught by video and those not caught by video? In the end, IMHO, Ray...

    One day after Ray Rice was cut loose from the Baltimore Ravens following the release of a video showing him striking and knocking out his then-fiancee, his wife is defending her husband and blasting the media for the pain caused to her family. In an Instagram post apparently written by Janay Rice, she said she felt like she was "mourning the death of my closest friend." "I woke up this morning, feeling like I had a horrible nightmare, feeling like I'm mourning the death of my closest friend," Janay Rice wrote in the post. "But to have to accept the...
