Obama’s Libya lies crumble
Washington Examiner [DC], by Conn Carroll

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/27/2012 8:44:00 AM

We seemed to have reached a tipping point in the liberal media’s coverage of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. This morning, The Washington Post has published to the web a devastating timeline of Obama administration statements on the attack that clearly demonstrate Obama has been lying about the incident for political gain from day one. The Post writes:In any kind of confused overseas event, initial reports are often wrong. But the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, in which four Americans were killed, including the ambassador, is a case study of how

"If Congress does not hold Obama accountable, eventually the American people will."

As much as I want that to be true, it isn't. Obama has and will skate on every mistake, blunder, lie, gaffe and crime he commits. The media will cover up everything, the Senate will ignore everything and the House won't do anything for fear of being called racist.

Not one soul I know is talking about Libya. Americans needed to understand the prison our life is going to be under UN Agenda 21, apparently Romney doesn't care and is positioning himself as another Bush-like mid East hawk. What a jerk.

Not only lies, but obvious ones. And Romney was excoriated for jumping the gun, when everything was obvious to people like us who consult the internet, not the administration, for our information. One look at the horrible photos of Ambassador Stevens and we knew no kindly Libyans had carried his body to the hospital but that he had been deliberately killed. How can Romney redeem himself after the media blamed him for speaking the truth "before the investigation," that is, the disinformation began? Hope this will come up in the debates.

To admit this event was a terrorist attack, O would have had to respond. He is incapable of making tough decisions and, as a Muslim sympathizer, unwilling to take a hard line. IMO, he parroted the lines he was given by his handlers and now like a child feels he has to stick to them no matter what. It's embarrassing for our nation, but I don't think he cares.

As has been said many times, if this were a Republican administration everyone, including the media, would be calling for his resignation. But the Democrats will cover for him because that's what criminal organizations do, and the media is the most corrupt and sycophantic I've ever seen. And I saw the Clinton years.

Remember this comment during a protest? "There are a million of us and we are all Osama Bin Laden."

I saw it only once then it completely disappeared. No conversation about causes for the attacks and violent demonstratons ever mentioned Obama's repeated spiking the football over Bin Laden's death.

The four deaths lie squarely at the feet of Obama and his incompetent administration. All excuses and blame-shifting coming from them is 'just noise'.

Obama has lied about Libya all along. It has been leadership by dithering, lying and 'from behind'.
Obama's original justifications for ousting Gaddafi included disinformation whose goal was always to protect Obama politically.
The complicit MSM has always winked and protected Obama, but with an Ambassador murdered and our consulate in ruins, it has been a little harder this time.
These lies are at the core of Obama. He demands that we pretend to believe, but more and more, we do not.

Good for WaPo for a change. This is a HUGE scandal. We need to go on a reverse offensive. We need to wave evidence under the MSM's noses while they are reporting their lies. We need people with signs behind their live shots. We need demonstrations in front of their corporate offices. The only way this iron grip of liberal bias will ever be broken will be by direct action.

I find it almost Biblical in the way our modern times reflect the prophecies.

The concept of Good vs Evil is rejected by the Progressives, no God, thus you can do as you please without fear of retribution.

If there were ever a finite definition of Evil, the Islamic Terrorist are that in spades.

I agree with all your remarks here but it does not seem to matter!! For example- the military is facing huge cuts in Virginia and Obama has promised to destroy the coal industry and YET Obama is "up" in Virginia. Can Anyone tell me what about the last 4 years makes folks want more?? What has happened to our country in the 4 years this man has been in office? 2 years ago folks were mad as hell and flocking to the polls- and today no one cares much?

Obama's not really up in Virginia. Those polls are bogus because they oversample Democrats on the theory that Democratic turnout will be as high, or even higher, than it was in 2008. There's not a snowball's chance in hell of that happening.

Maybe I'm just an optimist (it's why I'm a Republican), but I truly believe that most voters *are* noticing all of the garbage going on with the Obama administration, despite the media's effort to whitewash it. It may not be the first thing on the minds of people who don't dwell on politics, but it's out there.

They knew from Day One it was a terrorist attack. We knew that they knew. Now everyone knows.

Of course, the MSM will be in full apology mode for Obama and this will not go beyond a headline, but it is entirely damning. This begs the question: how many more terrorist attacks have there been that this Administration as lied to us about? I'm afraid if we open the door to that closet, we'll be removing skeletons for just about forever.

The Diane Sawyer Mafia Media TV Protection Racket has to be getting backed up maximum now with all the incredible lies protection and ommission protection, simply not saying what is actually happening. Now, it has to happen: one person, at least, a Brian Williams, Anderson whatever, at least one of these liars HAS to break out, like in a crime movie, and CONFESS to all the lies he is paid big bucks to make every day. This could be the breakthrough to a new America.
We have Brietbart, Lucianne, Drudge doing the truth serum right now, and it's GREAT.
The next step is for one network robot to step up and CONFESS all that he has known, and all the he has not been allowed to say.
Stop calling your drugged out Congresscrime
idiot, and start calling these criminals on televevision every day and night. Call THEM.

Remember, they all belong to the same TV union, they're in the same "fraternity" so to speak, so OUR GUYS are their enablers and not 100% helpful in attacking them.

FTA: ''President Obama appears to be the only member of his administration still sticking to the original lie that the Benghazi attack was prompted by a video. The head of Obama’s National Counterterrorism Center, White House Spokesman Jay Carney, and even Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have all admitted that the Benghazi attack was terrorism.''

This clearly shows that 0bama IS the smartest person in his room [White House]. S/.

Or, he had the Ambassador murdered in Libya on Sat. 11 anniversary to take the heat off his falling poll numbers. I know which I believe.

Anybody else getting the uneasy feeling that there is still something there that we aren't seeing? Like a shadow on an X-ray? A blank space?

We know that the Obama crew likes their little intrigues. They set up Fast and Furious to let guns into Mexico so that they can push stronger gun control here. They have Stephanopolis ask a question out of left field about banning birth control in the Republican debate, setting up the "war on women" narrative they are about to launch. So ....

What if the demonstrations over the video were a set up to discredit Christian fundamentalists, and to silence and intimidate "intolerant" Christians generally here in the election? That general called the Florida minister the next day. That sure was quick. What if this was an elaborate bit of political theater they were just starting to run? Did the attack in Benghazi and the assassinataion of Ambassador Stevens by alQaeda derail the whole thing, much like the killing of the border agent with a Fast and Furious gun derailed that scheme? If it were you, and you got caught doing it, what would you do? Stick with the first story as long as possible? Then fall back on a "security failure"?

This whole thing stinks, and we STILL don't know what is REALLY going on.

I'm sorry for the double, but as a continuation of that thought: the English paper printed a story stating that the Pakistani "demonstrations" were a handful of people yelling for the camera. Rent-a-mob. Then Newsweek does its Crazy Muslims cover. The whole middle east would seemingly erupt over a video made by a "Coptic Christian" who now tuns out to not be Christian at all, but has ties to terrorist bad guys. Then Obama goes to the UN and delivers a speech (written how long ago???) chastising Christians and calming the waters, and the middle east goes silent. Obama the peacemaker. Foreign policy genius. Who is there who is like him?

But AlQaeda had their own plans. The more I think about it, the more pieces begin to fit this scenario.

#42... Like you I think there is something else going on. I just don't understand the need for them to cling to the story that the attack was about the movie/video.
So what if it was "terrorism" and 0bama admitted it right away? What difference would that make?
Yet they clung to the "it was about the movie" narrative for more than a week. It makes no sense. What would have been the political downside?
Yes it was a "security lapse" but "we are moving quickly to secure all of our embassies in the middle east."
That's all they had to say and the MSM would be giving them a pass and we'd be talking about Mitt's latest gaffe.
No, they can't be that stupid. There is something else going on...

I was shocked when Obama on CBS 60 minutes said that the murder and sodomy of brave American men in Bengazi were "just bumps in the road". Obama lied to the UN about the silly video that nobody has seen as responsible for the terrible muslim violence. His statements were disgusting and horrible. His lies are dangerous folks.
Obama does not even understand that propaganda can't be all lies and must contain some relevant facts and half truths. He is either an idiot or a pathological psychopath. Obama know nothing about muslim/arab history and that is a shame. Perhaps someone should sit down and teach him something about the 1300 year war that the muslim waged on Christians.
I wonder how Obama would feel if he send his gay friends to work in Libya and they were murdered and sodomized?

Perhaps the "trailer" of the "movie" was made available by obama's boys,to incite the uprisings, but didn't calculate the slaughter of the Americans. He now must keep suggesting it was the "film" to maintain face with those with whom he conspired. Riots all over the ME,Europe Africa,without those deaths,would have provided him the opportunity to be "peace=maker" on the run-up to the UN General Assembly and begin the process of implementing his final push for his re-election.

Fox News was the first and is still out front in looking into this even though others are starting the coverage for CYA purposes. Today on Special Report, Judge Napolitano was angry and adamant. He said the failure to provide extra protection to the Consulate when they had indications of possible attacks in connection with 9/11 and now the failure to send FBI to secure the scene amounts to criminal negligence. I'm sure he doesn't throw that term around lightly.

Back in 2008,we already knew Barack Obama would be a disaster. In fact, I had posted on a site that I thought he would get people killed. Barack reminds me of the character of Lt. Norman Dike in the Band of Brothers - another empty suit, who couldn't make decisions but because he was favored by higher ups, he got to command Easy Company and got men killed during one of the attacks he led.

The problem is that the enemy is not being correctly identified because of political correctness, even by George Bush. Osama bin Laden is not the source of jihad, and long after his bones are picked clean by fishes, there will still be others like him. As long as there is a politico-religious system in place that aims for world domination, there will be holy war.

I've listed out the reasons why I think it is happening now on my wall on the Connection. I think it has to do with wealth from oil sales going to a bunch of people with a penchant for theocratic world domination.

What the hell is this American
plane owned by the Bank of

Daily Caller, by Eric Owens    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/18/2014 11:33:02 PM     Post Reply
On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

´Do you fancy jumping in the back?´ These were Prince William´s smooth words to Kate as the pair inspected the Super Hornets at Amberley Air Base shortly after touching down in Brisbane this morning. The pair is touring No 1 Squadron at the base - which is the first Super Hornet squadron outside the US. It´s a plane William won´t have flown himself in the UK - but he wasted no time stepping into the flight seat, while Kate watched on. He then stepped into the back seat - where the weapons are controlled, allowing Kate to take the pilot´s

MOKPO/JINDO, South Korea — Divers searching for survivors of a capsized South Korean ferry saw three bodies floating through a window of a passenger cabin on Saturday but were unable to retrieve them, the coastguard said, hours after the ship´s captain was arrested. The ferry, carrying 476 passengers, many of them schoolchildren, and crew, capsized on Wednesday on a journey from the port of Incheon to the southern holiday island of Jeju. Some 174 people have been rescued and hopes were fading for those still missing. The divers saw the bodies in a submerged cabin where many of the children

With the Chicago weather finally getting a little nicer, Chris Anderssen wanted to grill some burgers outside for a group of family and friends. When she got to the meat aisle at her local Jewel-Osco supermarket, a case of sticker shock made her change the menu: extra lean ground beef was $4.99 a pound. "Five adults, four teenagers, that´s a lot of hamburger to buy," said Anderssen, a 42-year-old mother of two who works as an office manager. She bought chicken instead for $2.99 a pound. Retail beef and pork prices reached all-time highs last month, according to Bill Hahn, agricultural

TOPEKA, Kan. — If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was

Is Harry Reid unpopular enough to become an election issue for races nationally? A GOP incumbent in North Carolina is trying to find out. Stuart Rothenberg reports in his Roll Call blog: The 30-second spot, titled “Meddling,” accuses Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., of “trying to fool Republican voters, meddling in our primary to get a weak opponent for Kay Hagan.” (Video) The North Carolina Senate race is rated Toss-up/Tilt Democrat by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call, in part, because of uncertainty in the GOP primary.

Some advice for Democratic candidates from consultants: Don´t use the word "recovery" in your speeches. Associated Press: Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
