Obama knew. Say again, Obama knew. So. The question. If what happened in Benghazi wasn't incompetence -- was it ideology? Did Sharia kill Ambassador Chris Stevens, Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, and two Navy SEALs? And is Hillary Clinton's insistence yesterday that the leaked State Department e-mails were "not evidence" yet more evidence that indicates the Obama White House not only knew what was going on but deliberately turned a blind eye to Benghazi because of that ideology? Specifically, did an ideological soft spot for Sharia -- Obama's name is being used by his step-grandmother to raise funds to educate kids in Sharia --
Mara Liason stated last night that the press was ready to do big stories about Libya, but scrapped them when Romney didnt bring up the issue. Too Which Krathammer stated that its journalistic malpractice to blame the Republican challenger for not covering the biggest scandal since Watergate.
For the "intelligence community" (to use FTA: ''Vice President Biden's words from his debate) to be specifically monitoring Facebook and Twitter for Ansar Al-Sharia means the Obama Administration well knew Ansar Al-Sharia was out and about in Benghazi. Yet somehow it didn't see a threat coming on, of all dates, September 11?'' and, ''Who killed Amb. Stevens? Sharia killed Amb. Stevens.''
0bama is doing exactly what he said he would do back in 2008. Side with the muslims. Every step of the way.
Let’s play “what if.” What if you were a president who had come up through the American left, and all your connections came out of that international globalist socialist movement? You know, the crowd that has joined with the muslim brotherhood and other radical islamic groups to oppose the Israeli “oppressors.”
What if you were in the middle of a losing campaign and heard, through your American leftist friends, that some middle east friends of theirs were planning some anti-American demonstrations on 9/11? What if your people decided to use them to your political advantage, and put together a narrative blaming the demonstrations on an anti-islam video made by a Christian in America, and linking the video with American Christians and that pesky US Constitution?
What if you roll out that narrative in Cairo by issuing an apology even before the demonstrations start? And when all heck breaks loose that evening in Benghazi, might you assume that it’s just part of the political theater you knew was coming? Might you wink at your co-conspirators and head to bed for a good night’s sleep before your Vegas trip the next day? And might your horror at the discovery that people were killed cause you to stick with the planned narrative in a desperate attempt to conceal your treachery?
Who in the White House knew the Cairo demonstrations were coming, and how long in advance?
Yes, but the media was eventually forced to cover Lewinsky and they are now being forced to cover this - just in time for the election.
If there was one single molecule of honor in the entire damnocrat party, they would be demanding zippy's resignation yesterday. But radical ideology and power trumps everything - even dead ambassadors.
Nah, Jeffrey .... you've got it all wrong. As Hillary, Old Media, Jay, Mara and others at the White House continue to tell us, this is all just a supposition. Besdes, there is no 'controlling legal authority' which will step forward to blame the president. Someone might aim at Hillary, but never at The Won. .... Besides that, Americans have been doing 'stuff' that angers Islamics, so who can blame them for attacking our embassies and murdering our ambassadors and others? .... We asked for it. Sarcasm/Off
No madam secretary -- the facebook and twitter crap doesn't make it so -- BUT -- four dead Americans who were dragging in the street and raped are.
NOW -- WE find out obama knew and still went off to his fund raiser in lasvegas and never sent in military to help Amabassor Stevens as the war room in the White House watched the film from the drone hovering near by...
What the H@ll is going on in OUR White House.....?

Like most terrorist orgainzations, Al-Quada is comprised of "cells". That is individual units operating independently towards a common goal. Killing one member, even a very senior member such as Bin-Laden, damages only a very small fraction of the organization, leaving the rest of them untouched and completely operational. This concept is nothing new. Our intelligence agencies know this well. Presumably "The smartest man in the room" would know this also. But no, he crows about Al-Quada being "on its heels". He knows its a lie.
Good heavens! She is still out there shilling, shucking and jiving. Her phoney statements, pretending she truly wants the examining board to find out what 'really' happened, just don't ring true. And Hillary, these men whom you knew 'personally' and whom you expressed such pain about losing, why did you leave them to die?
The "acts of terror" reference in his Rose Garden speech was a calculated insertion of an escape hatch. He knew what really happened and wasn't sure if he would get a media pass on it so he (i.e. Valerie Jarrett) inserted this ambiguous reference to terror so he could use it for cover if necessary.
I like how the new spin includes that the information in the e-mails is "social media", as if e-mails are only used for teen gossip. I wonder if Stevens had made a phone call Hillary would refer to phones as "social media" too to downplay his cry for help.
Knowing isn't the issue. It's what he did when he found out that needs exposure.
Romney was dead on correct when he told the joke about the media's job being to hide Mitt's plan for America. He could easily have dropped the other shoe about hiding Obama's actions but too gentlemanly for that.
Sounds like another one of ValJar's ideas to boost O. that went horribly wrong. The rumor is that she grins when she is called the de facto potus, wonder if she is grinning now. She is, indeed, tainted. Or would that be more tainted since she is already a slum landlord and a Chicago gangster pol?
We keep hearing people like McCain saying the Zippy has to go in front of American people and explain what happened in Benghazi. This man has lied throughout his term. Why would we believe whatever comes out of his mouth?
Hey Mara Liason! Here is news for you. Whether Romney brings up Benghazi or not, it is up to you reporters to go after what Zippy and his ilk are hiding. How about that for a news flash, you water carrier for Zippy?
Our first muslim constitution hating president cannot come clean why he did what he did any more than he can explain fast and furious, thought I believe their goals were similar-just different amendments. If they had gotten this movie nonsense to stick and he got re-elected, the movement to stifle free speech and the internet would have soon followed, just like gun control after f&f. Guaranteed. It's how these slimebags think.
Am I wrong or is this not a complete derelict of duty on the Fraud-in-Chief. And if so this is an act of treason, and why is Congress not taking action? Whether Obama knows it or not the Congress has power over him to remove him from office in one way or the other.
Agree with Spiderman. . . But also pose the question I asked several days ago: What did the Ambassador know, and when did he know it? In other words, I don't believe we are dealing with "incompetence."
I really think that when one is a Christian, you get a wisdom and ability it see things with God's eyes. I am so glad I did not vote for this evil man named, Obama. He is truly evil. I would be very afraid for my sons if one of them was in the military. This president would not protect them. Every thing he does is for his re election. It's all about him. People who still support him are blind, deaf, and dumb. Truly! This country will go down if he is re elected.
As other posters have suggested, could the Ambassador have been assured by his gay pal Zero, that this was going to be a staged, election-winning, hostage-taking event, and for them to go along with the plan... with reporters on sight taking pics of *hostages*... Stevens and his men, brave hostages with black material tied over their eyes, and their hands tied behind their back, with snarling terrorists holding guns standing beside them, and the media pleading with the Great Zero to bring home our American Hostages. Great Zero thumps his caved-in chest, brings the hostages home, and their stories glow with love for Great Zero. October surprise. Zero wins election and all the participants get perks.
I think our do-nothing congress should get busy and draw up Impeachment papers should Obama get re-elected. That would make him really historic. What he has done to our country is gut-wrenching and I'll bet there are a ton of democrats who know it. Illinois democrats impeached Blago!
I think Obama is a pacifist (coward) who thinks if he cow-tows to the Sharia bullies (among other Muslims), they will back down & stop hating/killing us. He is already forcing our troops to announce their presence before they start attacking terrorist cells in the Afghan region. So it will be a "fair fight". As if that's how they play!
He thinks if he goes after them he becomes a GW Bush "cowboy" that will only incite more violence. So he gets tough with the good guys:
Video documentary makers (who expose Islam) Israel (the Gaza strip occupiers) Pro-Lifers (anti-women) Millionaires (Wall Street, Eeeevil Oil; celebs not included) Tea Party (racists) -- i.e. anyone who has the guts to stand for the truth but is non-violent.
Too bad he didn't grow up learning about America. What happened to Iran's American hostages when "cowboy" Reagan was elected? Carter was the same kind of pacifist coward & they were taken on his watch. These Muslim bullies coughed them up just before Reagan took office! I am absolutely convinced this Embassy attack would have never happened with a man of courage in the WH.
# 33 Of course Mortargate is a high crime and misdemeanor and clearly Dereliction of Duty. It is unimaginable that the Commander in Chief actually watched Americans being slaughtered, shrugged and then went to bed. Of course , this same guy has shrugged the past 44 months over the 1514 soldiers , sailors and Marines that have died under Valerie Jarrett's command in Afghanistan , the 264 service members who have died in Iraq and the 13 dead soldiers at Ft Hood . What's another four dead white guys ? The way Congress is now configured , the House would impeach Obama , but, the Democrat Senate would never convict. Politically , it would be a huge distraction to start impeachment proceedings. Don't forget , though ,that We the People can impeach Obama in 12 days. Removal will have to wait until January 20, 2013.
barack hussein obama knew about and saw video of the attacks. 30 Americans being shot at along with mortars raining down on them and barack hussein obama refused to send in the military to rescue these Americans.
“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
The quote comes from page 261 of the paperback edition of “The Audacity of Hope.
Just take a good look at that photo of BHO with David Letterman and tell me our president isn’t the essence of gravitas. Remember “gravitas?” Remember the who-has-it and who-doesn’t discussions about gravitas? (I’ll betcha he even cried all the way to that fundraiser in Vegas.) Those are the kinds of presidential qualities he possesses. He knows what his priorities are. He never loses sight of his serious commitments and responsibilities. Oh, and thanks to his nanny, Valerie Jarrett, he now knows gravitas is not what you pour over your mashed potatoes.
I think #7s scenario is highly credible, and there are other theories out there that go even farther,in what the plan was. But bottom line - the behavior of inaction that was on display here can be completely explained by the idea that this was an expected event. I just differ with the concept that obama et al were horrified at the murderous turn that it took. Horrified that it can be their downfall,maybe, much more than the horror at the loss of life. These people have no souls. I am boiling, boiling mad.
i cancelled my daily paper because I got really tired of it being the voice box of the Dems. I wonder where are all the "investigative ""reporters"". This just makes me sick to my stomach that the LSM is just ignoring Lybia therefore many people are burying their heads in the sand. A bunch of sad followers with no thoughts of right and wrong let alone outrage at the murders of the Ambassador and Seals.
From a previous Lucianne post: http://www.oregonmag.com/blasphemy-begets-conspiracy-theory/"
"So, did someone encourage Mideastern TV stations to suddenly focus on a dated, obscure film’s existence? Who has ties to the Hollywood/internet powers that be who would know what motivates news and what doesn’t, and then who or what organization took advantage of the turmoil to where our embassies were stormed and/or burned in multiple countries? One could claim a conspiracy about an election-year October surprise occurring in September, caused and/or fomented by a 2012 Plumber’s group connected to an Administration from none other than Chicago."
The largest government employee union in the country issued a call-to-arms to its 80,000 Facebook followers, encouraging them to leave negative Amazon.com reviews for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s new book, “Unintimidated: A Governor’s Story and a Nation’s Challenge.” “Don’t waste a second reading it though,” reads a post from the Facebook page of the American Federation of State, City, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME). “Let us save you some time by sending you right to the parts where he mocks public employees as lazy, overpaid, and corrupt here and here.” Walker’s book was released November 19.
There´s a relatively long tradition, in the field of data visualization, of tracking the way we swear. This makes sense. Not only is it fun to track, but cursing is also conveniently specific as a data set; you´ve got your f-bombs and your double hockey sticks and your bodily functions, and, factoring in their permutations, you´re good to go. Plus, you don´t need much sophisticated sentiment analysis to ensure that your data are accurate: An f-bomb is pretty much an f-bomb, regardless of the contextual subtleties. As a result of all this, we, the public, get treated to sweary heat
US authorities have launched an unusual mission to kill troublesome snakes in Guam - parachuting in 2,000 dead mice laced with deadly painkillers. The brown tree snakes have caused numerous problems at Andersen Air Base on the remote Pacific island, between Japan and Indonesia, one of the most strategically important US bases in the region. There are an estimated 2 million of the snakes on the island, thought to have arrived stowed in a cargo shipment in the mid-20th century. They often gnaw and wriggle their way into important electrical stations, causing power failures at the base. They also threaten
A federal ruling Tuesday has taken the fight over fixing Detroit´s massive debt issues—brought on by a shrinking tax base generated from high unemployment and deserting residents—out of the hands of feuding city officials and creditors and under court supervision. And it´s given the city, which filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy in July, a break from paying off its $18 billion debt while it assembles a restructuring plan for its finances. The presiding judge called the hiatus "an opportunity for a fresh start." But the eligibility for bankruptcy protection is by no means a get-out-of-jail-free card. That fresh start requires
They may look like the same thoughtful photographic portrait of Morgan Freeman, but in fact one of these is a hyper-realistic finger-painting, created using only an iPad. If you are still not convinced, the British artist responsible, Kyle Lambert, 26, has produced a video to accompany his painstaking work viewed by almost four million people on YouTube - the only thing it is missing is a trademark narration by the Hollywood legend. The ultra-detailed picture, originally by photographer Scott Gries took Lambert one month and constitutes 285,000 finger strokes that blend ontop of one another to produced the precise wisps
Emphasis on “average.” He’s dipped below 40 in individual polls before but never in so many at the same time that the rolling average among them brought him into the thirties. Until today. Luckily, Paul Krugman says ObamaCare’s destined to be a smash hit so this will all turn around soon. That graph shows his job approval as of early this morning, when he was at 39.9 percent. The big mystery: Would Gallup’s new approval-rating data, released every weekday at 1 p.m. ET, nudge him back over the 40 percent threshold? Nope — he ended up dropping a point in Gallup
David Plouffe, a former top Obama adviser still close to the White House, sees a future in which fixing the technical problems of Obamacare will give President Obama the energy and clout he needs to finally accomplish his most important second-term priority: immigration reform. "Let´s fast forward to the State of the Union and the months after that," Plouffe said on ABC on Sunday. "Health care working better, a lot of people signing up, the economy continuing to strengthen, hopefully no Washington shutdowns. I think the president´s numbers will recover, I think people´s confidence [in Obama] will recover, and then we
The nation’s view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate. A new YouGov/Economist poll found Clinton, whose approval ratings have typically been sky high, with an unfavorable rating of 48 percent, more than the 46 percent who have a favorable opinion of her. The YouGov pollsters said that the change in American attitudes toward Clinton "suggests that negative press surrounding the tragic
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
