In January, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got into a heated exchange with Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin during her testimony on Benghazi before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Johnson asked Clinton to ascertain whether the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya was a response to an anti-Islam YouTube video. A visibly-furious Clinton took exception to Johnson’s inquiry and shot back, “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”
Bombshell Report Links Hillary Clinton To Missing State Department Billions…
According to an Inspector General’s report, a staggering $6 billion dollars in State Department funds is missing—“misplaced,” in the words of Hillary Clinton. In one case, Hillary Clinton wrote a $50 million check for “services performed.” The paperwork for what exactly the “services performed” were has also been “misplaced.” Just for the Iraq Embassy in Bagdad, a staggering $2 billion is missing! Obama’s response to Hillary Clinton “misplacing” $6 billion dollars?
“What difference does it make!”
But Hillary Clinton has bigger problems than a few billion dollars missing: It has now come out that her 2008 presidential campaign was illegally funded by businessman Jeffrey Thompson, with Clinton crony and former DNC chief Minyon Moore pulling the strings.
But there’s more: court documents show that Thompson illegally funded dozens of campaigns—and guess who he supported in 2012? You guessed it: Barack Hussein Obama.
America, Barack Hussein Obama more than likely received dirty money from Thompson and therefore stole the election. Will our Attorney General, the illustrious Eric Holder, investigate Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s shadow campaigns?
Yeah, when hell freezes over…

The incident happened moments after Clinton took the stage Thursday at an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting at the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino.
Clinton ducked but did not appear to be hit by the object, and then joked about it.
“Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque de Soleil?” Clinton quipped.
She added: “My goodness, I didn’t know that solid waste management was so controversial. Thank goodness she didn’t play softball like I did.”
Ilene Rosen, a witness and the wife of a conventioneer, was seated in the second row when she saw “something orange thrown from the side aisle with papers that fluttered in the air.”
Rosen said the woman walked down the aisle and got about six rows from the front of the seating area when she threw the object. The woman then turned around, put her hands in the air and walked toward the back of the room before ushers caught up with her, Rosen said.
Security officers ushered out the woman, who said she threw a shoe but didn’t identify herself to reporters or explain the action. Mark Carpenter, spokesman for the recycling institute, said she wasn’t part of the convention.
Authorities said she would be arrested.
Rosen said the object that went past Clinton lodged in a decoration at the back of the stage for a moment, but a security officer quickly grabbed it and took it off stage.
After her speech, Clinton answered questions posed by Jerry Simms, the outgoing chairman of the organization. Simms first offered what he called a “deepest apology for that crude interruption.”
Clinton answered questions broadly, saying she felt politics today leads people to “do what they think will be rewarded.”
An attendee later handed a reporter a piece of paper that was apparently thrown by the woman. It appeared to be a copy of a Department of Defense document labeled confidential and dated August 1967; it referred to an operation “Cynthia” in Bolivia.

Hillary Clinton praises bravery of Pussy Riot band members who desecrated Russian Orthodox cathedral. “The protest consisted of the musical group performing an obscenity-laden song in the cathedral’s sacred altar area with lyrics that mocked religion, calling it the excrement of Jesus Christ, and supporting ‘gay pride’ and abortion.”

Former Secretary of State and likely Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton posed for pictures Friday with members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot, just months after they were released from prison after storming the sanctuary of a Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Saviour to mock Christianity.
“Great to meet the strong & brave young women from #PussyRiot,” Clinton stated in a post accompanying one such photo on microblogging site Twitter. She praised them for “refus[ing] to let their voices be silenced.”
Pussy Riot was started in 2011 as a form of political protest, mainly in response to legislation aimed at restricting legalized abortion, but also to promote homosexual acceptance and political anarchy. The band performs only in unsanctioned venues, filming their illegal exploits to upload later to the internet.
The band members in Clinton’s photo, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, were arrested in early 2012 for staging an unauthorized protest in the sanctuary of Moscow’s Russian Orthodox Cathedral of Christ the Savior. The protest consisted of the musical group performing an obscenity-laden song in the cathedral’s sacred altar area with lyrics that mocked religion, calling it the excrement of Jesus Christ, and supporting “gay pride” and abortion.
Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina were apprehended by church security, while three other band members escaped. Later, another band member, Yekaterina Samutsevich, was also arrested. All three were sentenced to jail, but Samutsevich was released on appeal. In December, after nearly two years of Western outcry, Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina were granted amnesty and released.
Now, the two women are making the rounds in the West, receiving accolades from U.S. and European leaders who make no secret of their admiration for the duo’s controversial actions.
In February, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Powers also tweeted an image of herself with the band members, calling them “brave ‘troublemakers.’”
The U.N.’s Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin mocked her in reply, suggesting Powers join the group herself. “I would expect her to invite them to perform at the National Cathedral in Washington. Maybe they could arrange a world tour for them, you know. St Peter’s Cathedral in Rome, then maybe in Mecca in Saudi Arabia, ending up with a gala concert at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem.”

But Powers said she’d “be honored” to join the group, whom she called “a group of girls who speak up and stand for human rights.”
Western coverage of Pussy Riot’s troubles has been largely supportive of the group, focusing on their opposition to President Vladimir Putin rather than their anti-religious antics. But the public in their native Russian homeland is not nearly so accepting. In a documentary about the group released in 2013, one elderly woman compared their actions at Moscow Cathedral to “taking a s— in the heart of the country.” The public is also unsympathetic to their pro-homosexual message, with seventy-four percent of Russians believing that homosexuality is a “moral perversion” or “mental illness.”
The dichotomy between the way Western leaders and the Russian public view the Pussy Riot saga parallels much of the cultural friction between Russia and the West today. The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia also highlighted the divide, as President Barack Obama refused to attend the opening ceremonies, but instead sent three openly homosexual athletes in his place as a protest to a recent Russian law that prohibits the promotion of homosexual behavior to children.
German President Joachim Gauck, French President François Hollande, and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper also declined to attend the ceremonies, and the United Kingdom pledged to fund gay protests at the games.
The resulting chill between the U.S. and Russia may prove difficult to thaw for Clinton, should she win the presidency. While she once famously promised as Secretary of State to “reset” relations between the two world powers, last month she admitted her commitment to promoting homosexual acceptance abroad made things “tough internationally.”
“I spent a good amount of time trying to defend and advocate, not for gay marriage, but against discrimination and laws that even imprisoned homosexuals,” the former Secretary of State said at UCLA in March. “I had a knock-down, drag-out argument with the Russians.”
“This is a big piece of unfinished business,” she added.
