The Benghazi Brief
Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/19/2014 10:22:04 AM     Post Reply
This Brief has been updated to include newly spotlighted research on Syria and ISIL. Most importantly the previously unknown “Second Presidential Finding Memo” to the CIA in 2012 specifically directed to arm/aid ISIL in Syria. The new information from the month before the Benghazi attack explains the motive of the Turkish delegation toward Chris Stevens. Grab a cup of coffee because it’s a long read with over 350 citations and reference source links for conformational material. We think you’ll get hooked and find 95% of your Benghazi questions answered. And if you can find a factual flaw I’ll buy the coffee..

Hands Up, Don´t Loot

The interior of the Ferguson Market and Liquor Store is littered with broken bottles and scattered snacks. Despite the plywood boards covering the windows and doors, looters with their faces covered in bandanas helped themselves to anything they could find as those who came to memorialize Michael Brown carried on his work. The violence in Ferguson didn’t begin when a police officer shot Michael Brown. It began when a 300 lb thug robbed the Ferguson Market and abused a clerk. The release of the video showing the obese criminal assaulting the clerk led to a terrified statement from the store manager

Pope Francis: World has to ‘stop’
attacks on religious minorities in Iraq

Returning to the Vatican from a historic five-day visit to South Korea, Pope Francis on Monday said the international community should “stop” the Islamic State group’s attacks on religious minorities in Iraq. Francis also said he would like to visit the war-torn region if it would help end the violence against Christians and other minorities. Reporters traveling on the papal plane asked Francis if he approves of unilateral U.S. airstrikes on Islamic State-held areas where militants have killed, beheaded and forced the conversion of Iraqi Christians and others. “In these cases, where there is an unjust aggression, I can only say that it is licit to stop the

Amid what is expected to be a flurry of negative TV ads in Iowa´s U.S. Senate race over the coming weeks, the National Republican Senatorial Committee is going positive with a 7-minute web video about GOP candidate Joni Ernst. The web-only video is being rolled out today, and is part of a series describing biographies of Republican Senate candidates from across the country. The NRSC is a national group that supports GOP Senate candidates in close contests across the country. Ernst´s race against Democratic U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley for the seat opened by U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin´s retirement is expected

Manziel´s Obscene Gesture
Taints Browns´ Loss to Redskins

LANDOVER, Md. — If the Cleveland Browns pick a quarterback based solely on numbers, there´s not much either Johnny Manziel or Brian Hoyer did to show he deserves the job. If the choice is based on maturity, the hot-shot rookie´s obscene gesture lost him some ground to the nondescript sixth-year veteran. Manziel raised his middle finger toward the opponents´ bench as he returned to the huddle late in the third quarter of Monday night´s 24-23 loss to the Washington Redskins. Truth be told, it was one of the few times a Browns QB actually found his intended target. "It does

Vatican City - The Vatican says a road accident in Argentina has killed two young great-nephews of Pope Francis as well as their mother, the wife of the pope’s nephew. Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said the accident occurred Tuesday morning in the area of Cordoba, a major Argentine city. One nephew was 2, the other was 8 months. The age of their mother wasn’t immediately available. Lombardi said the nephew survived; local news reports said he was injured. Lombardi didn’t have the victims’ names. Lombardi said “the pope was informed about the tragic accident. He is deeply pained.”

A Grotesque Pantomime of

The American understanding of riots and racial violence was shaped a half-century ago, during the insurrections of the 1960s. To judge by the responses to the current rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, little has changed since then. After riots have wrought their physical and psychic damage, some invariably declare that the unrest was constructive. Patricia Bynes, a Democratic committeewoman for Ferguson, rationalized that the events in Ferguson would benefit the entire metropolitan area because, she said, “St. Louis never has had its true race moment, where they had to confront this.” She was topped by Missouri



Hillary unmasked: the consequences mount

The release of details of Hillary Clinton’s contract demands for speaking at UNLV, with incredible perks suitable for an empress, is deeply damaging her prospects for winning the presidency. The woman who complained about being “dead broke” when leaving the White House has become a complete diva. The information is sinking in, helping people understand who, exactly, this woman is. (snip)See for example, John Ralston, Las Vegas Sun reporter (called by that paper “Nevada’s leading political observer”) and TV editorialist seen on stations in Las Vegas, Reno, and Elko. Ralston unleashed an epic political rant.

Michael Brown´s Grandfather to Obama:
´I Voted for You,´ So Come Meet Me

President Obama has become notorious among his Missouri supporters for not visiting the embattled city, and the grandfather of the teen shot by police there a week ago is perturbed over the President´s distance. This week he went on TV to remind Obama he voted for him and urge the President to make his way to Ferguson to stand with his family. In an appearance on MSNBC, Michael Brown´s grandfather, Lesley McSpadden, insisted that it was time for "my President to step forward" and take action in Ferguson. With the rest of the Brown family, McSpadden has spent the week

Hillary is inevitable no longer

Hillary Clinton is no longer the inevitable next President of the United States, a summertime development that is not unexpected yet still surprises. Now the question is: Who will be the first to mount a challenge? Two potential challengers (although both deny they’ll run) hail from right here: liberal firebrand and US senator Elizabeth Warren and our cool and collected governor, Deval Patrick. The interest they’ve attracted is evidence of Massachusetts’ continuing influence in national affairs. Indeed, even though he keeps saying no, there might be a third Bay State contender in the wings: 2012’s loser, Mitt Romney. After all, Hillary’s problems

JASON RILEY, WALL STREET JOURNAL: We don´t have all the evidence and I´m hesitant to try and litigate this in the press, but there´s also this false narrative being pushed out there by folks like Michael Eric Dyson and [Al] Sharpton and the rest of the hustlers is that black men live in fear of being shot by cops in these neighborhoods. That too is nonsense. I know something about growing up black and male in the inner city and it´s not that hard to avoid getting shot by a cop. They pull you over, you answer their questions, you

Lehmberg Democrats Drunk On

You might not have seen the arrest or jailhouse videos from Rosemary Lehmberg’s DWI episode when it happened in the spring of 2013, but there’s a good chance you saw them over the weekend. If you still haven’t, we can fix that by having you click here and here. That Lehmberg, district attorney for Travis County, Texas, isn’t at least as famous as Toronto´s crack-smoking mayor Rob Ford is no surprise. Given how sloppy and belligerent she was during the arrest, not to mention her staggering blood-alcohol level of .239 (three times the legal limit), it is a bit odd

Obese and ´oppressed´in Ferguson

One comfort America and the world can take away from the Ferguson, Missouri protests is that contrary to the alarms raised by the Left that the black underclasses are malnourished and downtrodden, the visual images of the protest marchers from Ferguson most assuredly put this liberal assertion to the lie. Watch those people pass by the news network cameras and one observation that leaps out at you is the unrelenting human tonnage lending its literal weight to that procession. America overall is overweight, no question, but what is on parade here appears to signal that obesity, ranging from exceptional to

Twitter, Obama and the Gen.
Harold Greene funeral hoax

Major General Harold Greene, the first U.S. general to die in combat since Vietnam, was buried in Arlington National Cemetery on Aug. 14. At the time of the funeral, President Obama was on the course at the Vineyard Golf Club in Edgartown, Mass. As the president vacationed, the question of whether he should have attended the funeral set off an occasionally ugly, and certainly instructive, series of events on the Internet. On Friday morning, the blog Legal Insurrection posted an item headlined "Guess who was missing at funeral of highest ranking officer killed in combat since Vietnam War." The post included

Ten years ago, I visited a one-room schoolhouse in a remote village in Honduras—a community with no electricity, where most families eked out a living as small-scale coffee farmers. I asked a group of students who, if anyone, planned to migrate to the United States. I expected a few hands to go up. Instead, every single child in the room raised his or her hand. These children were not fleeing gang violence. They lived in a placid—though desperately poor—little hamlet where gangs were but a distant symbol of urban delinquency and danger. Like most of the Hondurans who have migrated to

Less than a week after Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) was indicted by a grand jury on two felony counts, he may be in an even stronger political position than he was before the charges hit. Several prominent Republicans have spoken out on Perry´s behalf. Conservative activists in Iowa and New Hampshire aren´t shying away. Even a well-known Democratic strategist has suggested the case against him may be flimsy. For a politician who is openly weighing another run for president, it´s a welcome turn of events: While politicians embroiled in legal fights of this magnitude typically find few public allies, Perry has

Spam looks pretty good for 77! The iconic blue can's birthday just passed, and in honor, here are 16 things you probably didn't know about this porky classic.1. An actor thought up the name.On New Year's Eve 1936, Jay Hormel threw a party and asked his guests to submit their most creative names for his new product. Kenneth Daigneau, a New York-based actor, wrote down Spam. Hormel loved the name, Daigneau won $100, and in July 1937, the first can of Spam rolled off the production line. (Here's a picture of Daigneau - look at those eyebrows!)2. Since then, it's sold more than 8 billion cans.

Filling in as host on NBC’s Meet the Press, Andrea Mitchell, NBC´s Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent and host of MSNBC´s Andrea Mitchell Reports, rushed to defend her colleague Al Sharpton for his involvement in the Ferguson protests. During a discussion with the Wall Street Journal’s Jason Riley, Mitchell declared that Sharpton was in Ferguson “on a peace mission” and not in the words of Riley to “continue to blame whites” for the death of Michael Brown. [See video below.] Mitchell’s comments came following Riley’s insistence that while the Brown death was tragic “let´s not pretend that our morgues and cemeteries

FERGUSON, Missouri — It was a little after 9 p.m., and I was in the McDonald’s parking lot, standing by my car. A police helicopter circled overhead, its spotlight sweeping back and forth.Then I heard the sound of shattering glass: A rubber bullet had been fired through a window of McDonald’s, which until then, had been one of the few sanctuaries on West Florissant Avenue. Now I didn’t feel safe anywhere. State troopers in riot gear and armored trucks moved south on West Florissant, firing flash grenades and tear gas canisters at a crowd of protesters who only minutes before had been


'Thunderstruck?’: Missouri Governor Helped

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, who yesterday said he was “thunderstruck” to learn how militarized police in Ferguson had become, signed off as recently as January on statewide participation in a Pentagon program providing local police departments with surplus equipment.In authorizing Ferguson police and other local law enforcement agencies to apply for firearms and other equipment, Nixon also directed his administration to “conduct management and oversight of the program,” documents show. Should Nixon, a Democrat elected in 2008 and re-elected in 2012, have been surprised? Participating jurisdictions, including agencies in St. Louis County, received weapons and equipment as early as 2010

Karin Piper wasn’t aiming to bust a union when she asked her Douglas County, Colorado school board to hold contract negotiations in public. Back in 2012, the mother of three was just tired of all the gossip flying around Facebook and play groups. “If you had questions about what happening behind closed doors, then you didn’t like teachers,” Piper said. “It was really difficult to ferret out who was speaking the truth.” The local teachers union contract was then about to expire. After a conservative school board majority that had arrived in 2009 was re-elected in 2011, the union was getting antsy

When TV Determines Guilt or Innocence

I don’t know why we are spending our hard-earned money paying taxes to support a criminal-justice system, when issues of guilt and innocence are being determined on television — and even punishment is being meted out by CNN’s showing the home and address of the policeman accused in the Ferguson, Mo., shooting. One of the big differences between Democrats and Republicans is that we at least know what the Democrats stand for, whether we agree with it or not. But, for Republicans, we have to guess. It is amazing how many otherwise sane people want Israel to become the first nation in

According to a preliminary report from a St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter, police say that more than a dozen witnesses back Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s version of the events that led to the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Post-Dispatch reporter Christine Byers sent a tweet late Monday teasing her findings.(Snip for tweet)Wilson’s claims match a woman who called herself “Josie” who called into Dana Loesch’s radio show on Friday. CNN confirmed with police officials that Josie’s and Wilson’s versions match. According to Josie, Wilson, a six-year police veteran, claims Brown assaulted and then “bum rushed” him during their encounter on
