want to thank the good people of california for a lovely stay. we were out here visiting with some cable providers. we'll see you on monday because at this time we have a special on the benghazi scandal. have a great weekend, everybody. welcome to welcome to "hannity." tonight the obama white house has been busted. there is now undenial -- undeniable evidence they, from the president on down, lied to you, the american people, about the lethal attacks in benghazi
that killed four innocent americans and engaged in a coverup after the lie. that's how we begin the news night which is why tonight, i'll call out the man who will do and say anything in an effort to advance the political agenda. >> when i go stand up at the podium in front of the white house press core, i never lie. i never say something i know is not true. >> oh, really? it's him. white house press secretary jay carney is nothing but a complete and utter laughing stock and it continued today after administration will admit this is a premeditated attack in ben -- benghazi. >> you can ask the intelligence committee of the current assessment of what happened. what we know is there was an attack, that there were extremists involved and four americans were killed. we have been saying that from the beginning, again, if you look at the language provided by the ic to members of congress and the white house, that's what ambassador rice stuck to. >> that duck, weave, and coffer
routine was the beginning because carney went further by attempting to accuse republicans and the fox news channel of unfairly politicizing this horrific tragedy. here is an exchange he had with our own ed henry today. >> you're being cautious on 9/12, why on 9/14 ben rhoeds is saying this was inspired by an e-mail. >> do you need a copy of the cia -- >> read them out, go ahead. >> the only thing in that e-mail is a cut and paste from the talking points which much to your disappointment and your boss' disappointment turned out to be produced by the cia. >> let me clear something up for you, mr. carney, as the rhodes e-mail proves, the president and top aids were concerned about the political fallout of the terror attack. they didn't want their commander in chief epic foreign policy failures to impact the election coming up, period.
when it comes to our coverage, i would think that the self-proclaimed most transparent administration in history would agree the american people, and especially the families that lost loved ones, deserve to know the truth. today, that comes on the heels of yesterday's disgraceful performance and that's when jay carney said with a straight face ben rhodes and his e-mails about susan rice's sunday appearances was not about benghazi. >> that document we're talking about today was about the overall environment in the muslim world. i can say it again and again, and i know you can keep asking again and again, this document was not about benghazi. >> see what i mean? that's called selling your soul for political purposes. this is beyond ridiculous. the whole nation was focused on attacks on the benghazi consulate four days before that memo. carney goes before the nation with a straight face and his
condescending manner to tell a bold faced lie. and this continues a pattern of lies for this administration, especially when it comes to benghazi. let's go back a few months when carney told us again and again and again that the white house had nothing to do with altering the talking points on this deadly terror attack. remember this? >> the cia drafted these talking points and redrafted these talking points. the fact that there are inputs is always the case in a process like this but the only edits were non-substantive. the cia made edits to the talking points and produced the talking points. >> just a lie, a provable lie. 100% not true and there's now an arsenal of smoking guns to prove it. there's more. he perpetuated the lie that a youtube video was to blame. this wasn't true also.
>> this is a fairly volatile situation and in response not to united states policy, not to, obviously, administration, not to the american people. it was in response to a video. we find the video that has been so offensive to muslims to be disgusting and reprehensible. reaction to the video was the precipitating factor in protests and violence across the region. >> remember baghdad bob? he'd be proud. time magazine's former time reporter tried to rewrite history when he said this. >> were we trying to play down the fact it was an act of terror? again, a hollow claim when the president himself called it an act of terror, when the talking pointed referred to the participation of extremists.
>> this presidential mouth priest is delusional or well-trained pathological liar, someone that gets caught in a lie but instead of telling the truth, admitting it, he enters an alice in wonderland world and black is white, lies are truth and truth are lies. keep in mind, this is just the latest obama administration scandal carney has tried to cover up. we just laid out all his benghazi lies. let's look at what he told the american people. remember the enemies list where they tried to harass and intimida intimidate. this is what he told them. >> i'm making clear now, activity in cincinnati, when i answered that question was very
specifically about, as i just said, lying to irs employees in cincinnati and scrutinizing 501 c 4 organizations by using tea party and patriots. >> and selling obamacare, mr. propaganda, said this. >> if you have insurance you liked on the individual market and you wanted to keep that insurance through 2010, 11, 12, and it was available, you could. >> the founders and framers believe the standard was supposed to be different. higher than the legislative and executive branchs. misleading the citizenry, that was an act of betrayal. they were right about that and so much more. it matters in america when a president and members of his administration lie and lie and lie repeatedly. in the final year of world war ii, franklin roosevelt ordered a
blessing by john adams carved on the fireplace in the state dining room that can be seen today. it says this. i pray heaven to bestow the best of blessings on this house and all that should hereafter inhabit it. none but honest and wise men ever rule under this roof. today in america a dishonest man rules under the roof of the white house and john adams has got to be spinning in his grave. jay and former clinton special counsel davis. good to see you. >> hi, sean. >> hi, sean. >> we went round and round about whether they were alone and depends, we have been told a series of lies here and we can prove them. i'm asking you as a democrat, in light of what john adams wrote his wife that day in 1800, does any of this bother you?
does any of this you find difficult to swallow, jay carney's propaganda? >> i don't share your belief, you're entitled to your belief -- >> they are called facts. >> got to let me finish. >> it's a fact. >> are you going to let me finish. >> go ahead. >> you had plenty of time in your opening. i don't believe jay carney lied and i have one fact you did not address. i read the 13 versions of the talking points beginning with version one that the cia said it drafted that was circulated and went back and forth over 13 different versions. >> i did, too. >> one sentence never changed in all 13 versions, fact, the cia wrote the words this was a spontaneous demonstration, that's their phrase, and then it ended with triggered by cairo protest. fact, that was written by the cia, was not invented by the obama white house or the state department or ambassador rice.
if there was a mistake, and there was a mistake made in the intelligence assessment about this being a spontaneous demonstration, we now know that was wrong. >> here is the problem, here is the problem with your -- >> it is not a lie. >> here is the problem with your spin -- >> mistake and lie. >> the station, to get to that point that you're talking about, they ignored the stations chief. the people on the ground in libya and they decided to write it out of virginia and on top of that, we have the november 28th, -- i have tape of jay carney saying, no, no, the only change we made was from the consulate to diplomatic facility because that was the only thing we had to do. now we know with the speaking e-mail -- hang on, jay the white house was involved in the talking points. >> let me say something else here. there is no explanation legitimate for this. jay carney is lying, not telling
the truth when he says this e-mail was not about benghazi because this e-mail became public only because our friends at judicial watch filed a lawsuit asking for documents related the benghazi. a court ordered those to be released and the state department produced this e-mail, which is a response to the benghazi attack. so administration can try to change what it means, but the fact is the words speak for themself. that's number one. >> all right. >> number two, lanny, they handled this wrong from the beginning. certainly we knew three days later, obviously, immediately this had nothing to do with the video. some are continuing to keep the narrative going and do not take your advice, lanny which is come out, tell the truth, tell it often and directly. they still haven't done this. it is spin control and they are institutionally incapable of self-correcting. that's the reality. >> i'm not asking for equal time but i would like to respond to the two points and the last one you made. number one, the fact is
unrefuted that the cia wrote the words spontaneous demonstration trigged by cairo protests and that's what's been attributed to the obama -- >> but not a video. >> but that cairo protests were in fact a response to the words video but you don't deny -- >> i got a fundamental question -- >> on the point about ben rhodes, give me a chance to respond, ben rhodes is involved in prepping people for sunday shows. the larger question -- and it was in the middle of a presidential campaign -- is whether the benghazi tragedy should be attributed to something lacking in the white house policy and his point in prepping somebody for a sunday show is no. this tragedy was not about a failure of our policy. it was a tragedy. >> so your -- >> wait -- [ overlapping speakers ] >> that's what they were trying to do. >> we have more on this coming up next, thank you, guys, tonight right here on "hannity".
>> i will say again diversion, subterfuge, benghazi, benghazi, benghazi. weren't we talking about something else? >> why aren't we talking about something else? is she kidding me? i wonder what the families of the four dead americans think. the mother of one of those killed in benghazi join us. that and more tonight as "hannity" continues. female announcer: sleep train's interest free for 3 event

required air force brigadier general. he not only said the video narrative should never have been pushed by anyone, he also said this. >> there are accounts of time, space, and capability, discussions of the question could we have gotten there in time to make a difference. the discussion is not could or could not of time, space, and capability. the point is we should have tried. >> the military should have interfivened that night. nancy pelosi was making outrageous and insensitive remarks. >> i will say again, diversion, subterfuge. benghazi, benghazi, benghazi. why aren't we talki ining about something else? whatever was in those e-mails that i read in the press is very consistent with what was put out
before. >> i can name four reasons why we're talking about this. they are the victims. here's one of the mothers of the victims that night. what is your reaction to the fact this seems to be, i call it the smoking gun e-mail? we have the evidence, in fact, that says they are. as the mother of somebody that was killed that night, september 11th, what is your reaction? >> i've got a pretty strong reaction on that. first of all, i keep flashing back on my son receiving the telephone call that says, sorry, there's no help coming. you're on your own. and i can picture his face as he was about to die. why didn't our government, our military, go in to help him and all the others that were there? nobody cared enough. they were covering their butts
for something. i don't know. this is how i feel. i'm very strong on it. >> you met the secretary of state, if i'm not mistaken, did you not? >> yes, i did. >> and you met the president, did you not? >> yes, i did. >> what did they tell you when you met them? >> they said it was the fault of the video and -- i said, please, i've got to know what happened. they promised that it was a video and if they found out any different they would get back to me and let me know. they did not get back to me. they just disacknowledged my existen existence. >> you told me once before that your son knew about the requests for added security before all this ever happened. isn't that true? >> that's very true. i talked to him the day before this happened. he called me and he says, mom, there's people from our security force that was out there taking
pictures of everything. he says, there's something bad that's going to happen. it's building up and something really bad is going to happen. >> yeah. >> he says they asked for more security and again he got turned down. i want to know why he got turned down. what was the reason? they've got to have a reason for it, but nobody has given me any yet. nobody wants to give me any because they're covering. i don't know why. they must be covering something. >> i think they're covering up. so this e-mail from ben rhodes comes out and this is coming from the white house. they're advancing a narrative. they're preparing susan rice for the five sunday programs with a story that we all know that they knew wasn't true. what do you want to say to the president about this and maybe hillary clinton? >> to both of them and to panetta, all of them told me
within two inches of my face, within two inches, saying, i feel for you. i'm sorry for you. this shouldn't have happened the way it did, but it did. it was a problem of the video and we will double check and get back to you. we'll let you know what happened. and they stuck with the video even knowing at that moment it was very, very untrue. >> all right, pat. again, we're sorry for your loss. thank you for being with us. earlier today john mccain took to the senate floor to address the newest allegations. take a look. >> a time has now come for a select committee. the time has now come because these talking points raise more questions than answers. it is time for a bipartisan, by bicameral select committee to investigate the entire benghazi fiasco and tragedy and it needs
to be done soon. >> here with reaction is senator rand paul. are you convinced that we were lied to, that pat smith was lied to, the country was lied to in anticipation this might hurt their presidential ambitions? >> it appears from these e-mails the white house was politicizing this from the get-go. they were concerned about spin, but they weren't concerned very much about the truth. it is sad to hear from those who died and their families, to hear about the fact it appears they still, even to this day, my understanding is that former secretary of state hillary clinton is still talking about the movie and blaming it on the movie. >> if you go back to november 28th, i'm looking at jay carney.
he said then that the state department and the white house has made clear that the only adjustment they made to the talking points were just minor in that they changed the word consulate to diplomatic facility because consulate was inaccurate. doesn't that prove otherwise? that they were up to their eyeballs about this and he just lied about it? >> it's about the tenor and tone of the e-mail that says we need to blame it on the video. we need to do this. if you read that e-mail, it's like what a hollywood producer would do in saying, what do you want the general feeling to be from this and the feeling needs to be this is not terrorism. it occurred on the anniversary of 9/11, but it was not terrorism. it was a way to orchestrate
spin. >> you've come out strongly about defunding the palestinian authority who has aligned themselves with hamas and you're demanding what should be demanded and that is they should recognize israel. >> the stated goal of hamas is the destruction of israel. we give them several hundred million dollars a year of precious american money. all i'm asking is that they say israel has the right to exist. i asked for unanimous consent to pass the bill and the democrats opposed this. why? you want to keep giving money to
the palestinian authority and to hamas? i'm not done with it. i'm going to make sure no american dollar goes to any country that's not acting in a way that's in our best interest and to countries that don't recognize israel's right to exist. >> thank you very much for being with us. it's hard to prevent the american people from creating wealth. it's an achievement to make the economy grow this slow. >> so who is to blame for the abysmal economic news? later tonight we have some heavier hitters in the house. they're all here tonight for our great american panel and more of ainsley's report straight ahead. in about two weeks in most men. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18

2.1%. this has just stopped dead in the tracks. >> it's hard to prevent the american people from creating wealth. it's an achievement to make the economy grow this slow. 44% of the jobs created since the recession ended five years ago this coming june are in food services, retailing or low-wage entry jobs. this is a calamity and it's happening when we're in this revolution of energy independence and collapsing energy prices. it's astonishing reverse achievement. >> the words from bloomberg editor mike mckee and george will after the commerce department revealed that the u.s. economy slowed to 0 .1% growth between january and march. what is to blame for the bad number? rushing to the defense of the president as usual, jay carney did what he does best and spins the news and said that obamacare is the reason for any growth at all. oh, really? watch this. >> the fact of the matter is and the gdp report makes it clear
that it was consumer spending on health care that helped drive economic growth in the first quarter. >> all right. so that was yesterday, but the disappointing economic news did not end there because today the labor department reported that weekly jobless claims rose unexpectedly by 14,000 to 344,000, which is pretty unbelievable. here with analysis, dr. charles, how are you? >> i'm great. pleasure to be with you. >> first, let's get to carney aspect of this because whatever the lie, whatever the spin is, doesn't matter how far over the top he goes with it, does he get to stay after the smoking gun with benghazi? >> he'll stay, but i'm enjoying the comedy. let's take what he said at face value. let's say it's true that that's the reason we got any growth at all is obamacare. unless you can show me that
americans are healthier today than they were one quarter ago, what he's saying for the same health care is we have to spend more. the main complaint about obamacare is american medicine is the most expensive in the world without a necessarily significant difference in outcome. what he's telling us and admitting to us is that obamacare has just made that fact worse. >> well, here's one point that the new york post put out today. if the commerce department didn't reduce its inflation rate that they used to make a gdp calculation from 1.6 to 1.3%, we would have had a contractored quarter. that makes me question if they fixed the numbers here. >> the numbers are so bad you don't have to fix them. you reach for the paddles and
you plug it in. now, this administration has harolded all these jump starts, the great stimulus of '09 and then there was a second stimulus. we have a monetary stimulus going on as we speak. year after year, the fed has been pumping $1 trillion into the economy and still with flat line. people look for all these explanations. there's a book by a frenchman blaming it on capitalism. i don't know about you, but i lived in the 80s and 90s. there's nothing intrinsic about flat lining.
that's the start and finish. you take away the burdens and you take away the uncertainties and the american economy will grow and that's what it's trying to do despite this administration. >> and the debt. back in 2005 the financial times pointed out that the international comparison program thought that china's economy was less than half the size of the u.s. this has all happened -- they were about to overtake us -- in about nine short years. what does that tell us? >> it tells us 1871 was a pretty bad year. look, it was inevitable. china's got four times our population. the way that they jumped ahead of us or are going to jump ahead of us today or this year instead of in half a decade is because of a change in the calculation by the imf. they're using a different kind
of measure. the fact is inevitably if you have a 1.2 billion people, they're going to have an economy that will outpace us in the gross output, but that's not news. what's news is that ours simply has stopped growing. that's what's unusual. it's not the growth of china. and the stoppage of the growth after half a century post world war ii. in every recovery, the average growth has been over 4%. with obama, it's half of that. again, no mystery. and i think that the country has a sense that all of these, you know, pretenses, excuses, you go with the weather in the first quarter. everything ultimately is george bush and what isn't bush is global warming, i suppose. everybody understands it in the end. this is a very heavy intrusive
government and they know the american economy has a genius for expansion and growth. let it go, particularly in energy. >> i'm on the exact same page with energy. thanks for being with us. coming up next tonight on "hannity. >> remove this hateful term from your league's vocabulary. >> harry reid has to chime in. now that the nba has banned sterling, should the nfl get rid of the red skins name? stop what you're doing. set your dvr to record the "hannity" series so you never miss a show. did you know, your eyes can lose vital nutrients as you age?

[ don ] in the right hands, an imatch quick-hitch could probably cure most of the world's problems. [ male announcer ] that's how we run,
to the senate floor slamming the owner of the redskins for not changing that team's name. take a look. >> how long will the nfl continue to do nothing, zero? as one of its team bears a name that inflicts so much pain. i urge daniel snider to do what's right and remove this degrading term. >> here with reaction, brian and also he's radio host, kirsten powers up from d.c. she abandoned us. and dana perino. thanks for being with us. >> i hope you come back. >> you don't mean that. >> i do. >> i'll never go away. i want to be on the number one show. you made me at home and grilling hannity was your idea. >> hazing hannity. >> let's take a look at for example, look at joe biden for a minute and a montage of him. roll that tape.

>> he said these things. it was fairly controversial. he has been raked over the coals for this stuff previously. we have probably discussed this multiple times. >> that was probably a bad dream. the double standard is getting to a lot of people, dana, and they are frustrated because democrats advance the narrative conservatives are racist. i'm tired of it, i know you are tired of it. i don't know where you stand. >> you want to talk to the girls, go ahead. >> i wrote a piece about an openly gay republican running for congress against scott peters, who is a freshman democrat. the right is not perfect, but it has grown in its inclusion and tolerance and acceptance and someone like him is being more supported by the republicans in the area, rather, and the lgbt's
actively working against him. so my question was, who is really the most tolerant here? >> hi, brian. >> in terms of the question, what donald sterling said is inexcusable. when you open the phone and look at the e-mail and talk radio, most people say yeah, it's bad. why the outrage? about free speech? i said wait a second, are we trying to define what he's saying or marginalize what he's saying? people don't like the fact he was railroaded. >> what about this guy benny thompson, democrat doubling down -- >> out of control. >> i mean, it's outrageous. >> yeah, i think it's outrageous. i don't -- >> i know you do and i believe that about you but it's not main stream for the democrats. their main stream fall back position is to say republicans are racist, right? >> i think so. that's worked for them in the past. i don't personally believe this but there is a feeling that the
group think is that republicans are intolerant and racist. and i think bennie thompson, it's not new what he said. these are comments that he's made over time. >> why doesn't the country pay as much attention to that as the owner of the clippers, real quick? >> benny thompson came out and doubled down and said yeah, he is an uncle tom. why is it okay for you to say it? because i'm black and basically you're white. it's unbelievable he seems to get a past and has no problem saying it. >> it would be fun to see them have a debate. i'd pay money to see that. >> thomas doesn't need to be in the presence of a biggot like that. >> i agree. and i hope he doesn't pay attention to this stuff. >> he's been through a lot over the years, sadly. >> kirsten, welcome back to new york. >> thank you. >> we'll have ainsley's installment. our week long hannity series examining the va. we have a great update about one

treatment at a phoenix veteran's affairs hospital. we have an update about one of the families we introduced to you earlier this week, but first here's is ainsley earhardt's next installment. >> a husband, father, grandfather, to america, a soldier, vietnam vet. deb says his life was cut short because of the failure of the phoenix va. >> so tell me mel's story. >> mel was not feeling well, so he went to his primary physician in the va and told her that his bladder area was hurting really bad and that he was passing blood in his urine and she told us both three times, she said, blood in your urine is nothing to be concerned about. >> so then you went to another hospital? >> then we went to the northern
arizona prescott va hospital and mel was diagnosed on october 17th, 2011. >> a different va hospital diagnosed him. >> so the problem was with the va hospital in phoenix? >> yes, it was. then we realized he had the bladder cancer, but we decided we would go to the clinic and see whether or not if the va would outsource his operation. met a doctor this who was willing and able to do the surgery. he said, mel, we're very sick, but we can fix you. it took the va in phoenix seven months to approve that outsourcing to get that surgery. >> after seven months, he goes to the mayo clinic to have that surgery and was it too late? >> yes, it was.
