We now honor Soviet spies who betrayed their country. At least we do in New York.
Ethel Rosenberg, who was executed with her husband in 1953, for conspiracy to commit espionage, was presented with two posthumous awards, one for “great bravery” and another for “wrongful conviction”, by the far, far left New York City Council Monday. They even dedicated the day in her honor.
The Rosenbergs were convicted of passing information related to the Atom bomb to Russia. Ethel’s husband Julius was a courier and recruiter for the Soviets.
Their friends and their relatives were Soviet spies.
Does this woman have any shame?
Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton took offense to remarks by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy that the ongoing House select committee investigation into the Benghazi attacks is hurting her campaign, and used members of the U.S. military as political pawns in disparaging the probe.
Clinton appeared Wednesday on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” and told host Al Sharpton that McCarthy’s comment “demonstrates unequivocally that this was always meant to be a partisan political exercise.”
She then claimed the pursuit for answers to why four Americans died in the attack is somehow an affront not only to those who lost their lives, but to all members of the military.
“I feel like it does a grave disservice and dishonors not just the memory of the four that we lost, but of everybody who has served our country,” Clinton said.
But veterans weren’t buying the political spin that it’s disrespectful to expect Clinton to answer for her role in Benghazi.
A number of vets took to social media to denounce Clinton’s “flippant” attitude about Benghazi. Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
” I am a veteran & we won’t vote 4 the Butcher of Benghazi”
When you think of places one might call “ground zero” for Islamic extremism in the United States, several places spring to mind. Perhaps New York City or Michigan — where one major city has earned the moniker “Dearbornistan” — would be your choice.
However, according to an expert on Islam in America, the answer is a surprising one — the state of Tennessee, where she says Islamist indoctrination is happening on a massive scale in the school system.
“Tennessee is ground zero for Muslim activism in the United States,” Cathy Hinners said at a panel at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, D.C., last week.
