Patricia Smith targets Hillary

Two speeches at the opening night of the GOP Convention stood in stark contrast in both their content and their treatment by the lamestream media. The chattering class on the left focused on Melania Trump’s alleged plagiarism of Michelle Obama’s speech in 2008. They have largely ignored Patricia Smith, mother of Benghazi casualty Sean Smith, and her documentation of Hillary’s lies to the parents of the Benghazi dead in front of their son’s caskets.

Melania may have paraphrased too close to the edge, but borrowing clichés about hard work and family does not plagiarism make and, even so, plagiarism is not perjury, as serial liar Hillary Clinton arguably committed in testimony under oath before Congress, Neither did she show Hillary’s callous disregard for the families of the Benghazi dead that Patricia Smith focused on in her riveting convention speech:

“I know a few things could’ve been done to prevent it. But nobody’s admitting to anything. Right now, my understanding is Hillary didn’t do a damn thing. And I wonder what she did as Secretary of State, because she disavows everything. She disavows the fact that she even got any call for security... If this is her Department, she certainly doesn’t know how to run the Department. And she lied the whole time. She lied to me and called me a liar on TV,” Smith continues.

“She told me it was the fault of the video…  And later when I mentioned that, she said she never said anything like that to me. How can a woman be this way!

“She said ‘One of us is a liar, and it wasn’t me,’” Smith recalls Hillary saying on air later.

“I am not a liar! I know what Hillary told me! In fact… I’ve spoken to quite a few different people – Hillary and Obama, Panetta, Susan Rice, and several others… every one of them told me it was the fault of the video, including Obama – and he denies it!

“Please, tell the world. Tell the world what she’s really like.”

Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani became the latest to try to break through the media indifference to the fact that Hillary Clinton muffed her 3 AM phone call during the Benghazi terrorist attack and then lied about it later, including repeating the lie about an inflammatory video causing the attack:

Her dereliction of duty and failure to keep her people safe played a major role as you heard tonight in the horrific Islamic terrorist murders on September 11 and 12, 2012 in Benghazi which claimed the lives of four brave Americans: Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, and CIA agents Tyrone S. Woods, and Glen Doherty. May they rest in peace.

And Clinton, and the Obama administration, for political reasons, lied about the purpose of the attacks including Hillary Clinton lying directly to the families of the people who were killed -- right to their face!

Hillary Clinton’s answer to Congress about the death of these four brave Americans because of her gross failures as Secretary of State was, “What difference at this point does it make?”

"What difference does it make?"

Watch the video for yourself and see the arrogant disregard for American lives lost unnecessarily because of her. And then make up your own mind.

Anyone who can say that it makes no difference how or why people serving America are killed, should not be entrusted with the awesome responsibility to protect them and us and should not be allowed to be our Commander-in-Chief.

In a stunning display of callous indifference to the casualties of her incompetent foreign policy as Secretary of State, the woman who claimed to have dodged sniper fire in Bosnia, in Wednesday’s CNN debate in effect called Patricia Smith, mother of Benghazi casualty Sean Smith, a liar. As Breitbart News reported the exchange:

RAMOS:  Secretary Clinton, on the night of the attacks in Benghazi, you sent an e-mail to your daughter Chelsea saying that Al Qaeda was responsible for the killing of the Americans, however some of the families claim you lied to them, the mother of the information officer. Listen.

VIDEO: Hillary and Obama and Panetta and Biden and Susan Rice all told me it was a video when they knew it was not the video. They said they would call me and let me know what the outcome was.

RAMOS: Secretary Clinton, did you lie to them?

CLINTON: I feel a great deal of sympathy for the families of the four brave Americans that we lost at Benghazi, and I certainly can’t even imagine the grief that she has for losing her son, but she’s wrong. She’s absolutely wrong. 

The woman who once claimed to be named after Sir Edmund Hillary three years before he climbed Mt. Everest has uttered this slanderous attack on the character of the grieving parents of Benghazi before. Shortly before the New Hampshire primary, Hilary called the grieving Benghazi parents liars. As the Daily Mail reported:

The Daily Sun, a newspaper in rural Conway, New Hampshire, hosted an editorial board meeting with Clinton on Wednesday. Columnist Tom McLaughlin recounted for her the claims of victims' family members who said she had told them a crude Internet video that mocked the Islamic faith was responsible for inciting the attackers who killed their loved ones.

Clinton has denied making any such statement, despite the accounts of four people. One, the father of a slain CIA security contractor, took written notes of her words.

'Somebody is lying,' McLaughlin told her Wednesday. 'Who is it?'

'Not me, that's all I can tell you,' Clinton replied, casting blame on the families.

No, Hillary, it is you who is the liar, an active participant in the Benghazi video lie repeated on five Sunday talk shows by then U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, by President Obama six times before the United Nations, and by you and the president to the parents of the dead in front of their son’s caskets.

The question of the day should not be about Melania Trump’s journalistic ethics, but about the total lack of conscience that allowed Hillary Clinton to tell her the daughter the truth about Benghazi being a terrorist attack and then lying about a video to the American people and to the parents of the Benghazi dead. As Patricia Smith told the convention:

“In an email to her daughter shortly after the attack, Hillary Clinton blamed it on terrorism. But when I saw Hillary Clinton at Sean’s coffin ceremony, just days later, she looked me squarely in the eye and told me a video was responsible,” Smith said. “Since then, I have repeatedly asked Hillary Clinton to explain to me the real reason why my son is dead. I’m still waiting.”

So are we. Hillary’s “extreme carelessness”, as FBI Director Comey put it, both for classified information and the truth about Benghazi, should disqualify her for a job at the post office, not just the presidency. She lied to Patricia Smith to preserve President Obama’s reelection bid and her bid to succeed him. Now back to the coverage of Melania Trump’s speech…
