The Benghazi bleed is draining Obama and Democrats, with the consequence yet to be seen. If he loses, it will be one reason why; if he wins, he will run into a headwind of investigations and inquiries that will get his second term off to an ugly beginning. Either way, it has put an end for the time being at least to the Democrats' latest effort to dig themselves out of the foreign policy hole they dug themselves into in the late l960s, and from which they have yet to emerge. They tried with Jimmy Carter, ex-career naval officer
"The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."
No man has ever disgraced the office of President of the United States like Barack Obama did with those words. Moreover, he proclaimed them to the entire world as part of the lie that the Benghazi terror attack was caused by a youtube clip, all to deflect attention from the truth: his own craven culpability in the murders of 4 brave Americans.
Democrats and independents - let your conscience be your guide in the voting booth, not the lies you know are lies from the MSM. Please. This disgrace cannot be allowed to continue.
I was talking via Email to a very liberal person last week about this. Even he was upset over this but was still planning to vote for Obama. I told him he might want to rethink that as Joe Biden was in the room and if this turns out to be gross incompetence or worse actual treasonous behavior by Obama then both he and Biden will be removed from office. Thus a vote for Obama is a vote for John Boehner as president as he is third in line
If he loses, it will be one reason why; if he wins, he will run into a headwind of investigations and inquiries that will get his second term off to an ugly beginning.
Obama is notorious for discarding Congress' power and doing end-runs around it. Inquiries and investigations cannot stop Obama's EO's. He will simply "deem" something to be law, et voila! "Stroke of the pen, law of the land. Cool", to quote Bill Clinton.
He cannot be stopped if he is reelected. His agenda, with a vengeance, will go forward.
I heard Glenn Beck say that Valerie Jarrett threatened that there will be "hell to pay" for anyone who doesn't support Obama. Here's the quote:
“After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”
ValJar's comment sounds suspiciously close to vote for "revenge."
This little quip from the UN speech, "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam," betrays The Wun's true feelings. He was talking about a fake video that no one's seen here, that may not even "slander" anything. That little gem should set every Christian and Jew's teeth on edge.
#11, the quote from Valerie Jarrett is extremely disturbing. I have never witnessed so much hate from a President and his minions. They must be defeated because if they could, they would eliminate anyone who opposes them. They are that evil.
There are already grounds for impeachment over the Benghazi disaster. It was a disaster of negligence and purposeful malfeasance. There is no longer any doubt that there has been a coverup, for a situation where people died!
There were no deaths in Watergate. Nixon did the honorable thing when he saw what it would do to the country.
Obama (and many others in the administration) lied, and people died!
The media has become a joke and a national embarassment. Is this what all the people of the Greatest Generation die for?
Obama, if reelected, deserves to be impeached. Val and her pals are poised to reign terror on all not on their side. Why are republicans not ready to bring legal/political/ treasonous/criminal charges on many levels to this totally corrupt dictatorial, unlawful regime? Why do Jarrett and Holder still have their jobs?
The poor scapegoat who is accused of making the video will be released from jail in THREE days. Hint: usually one doesn't spend a few months in jail for a minor parole violation, without a hearing of any type. I bet he will have a lot to say.
The traitorous TV Diane Sawyers are the cover-up for the malfeasances of the Pretender. A second term means they have to continue lying under increasingly greater scrutiny. Look for TV's old media traitors turning into whistleblowers. Let's face it, the least socialist of them simply won't be able to continue breakneck lying for 4 more lengthy years. Also, Benghazi, the czars, fast and furious, giving billions to evil friends, buying illegals votes, phony birth certificate, redacted history, questionable social security card, muslim ties, communist style IRS enforced medical industry, Soros ties, there's just too much to keep covering up. Amongst all those Diane Sawyers there HAS TO BE AT LEAST A FEW REAL AMERICANS WITH GOODNESS LEFT IN THEIR SOULS. Stop questioning only the corrupt politicians and start questioning the CORRUPTING MEDIA TV TRAITORS TO THE TRUTH.
It is worse than the author states. Obama's administration has been aiding, possibly unwittingly, possibly not, the terrorists by arming them in Libya and then transferring the arms to Syria. That was Steven's main assignment.

Does anybody see the similarity to the "gunwalking" of arms to the preferred Mexican cartel? I actually believe Obama was taking sides in the fight between the Mexican drug gangs with the express intent of "negotiating" with them after one gang wins. That's what Democrats always do.
So in my humble opinion, Benghazi was one more gunwalking scheme where we arm Al Qaeda to defeat Assad, because "surely Al Qaeda will like us if we help them take Syria!! Then we can negotiate!"
House and Senate negotiators were putting the finishing touches Sunday on what would be the first successful budget accord since 2011, when the battle over a soaring national debt first paralyzed Washington. The deal expected to be sealed this week on Capitol Hill would not significantly reduce the debt, now $17.3 trillion and rising. It would not close corporate tax loopholes or reform expensive health-care and retirement programs. It would not even fully replace sharp spending cuts known as the sequester, the negotiators’ primary target. After more than two years of constant crisis, the emerging agreement amounts to little more
The sequester, no matter how imperfect a policy, is arguably the only victory for fiscal conservatives in a very long time. Their victory is also president Obama’s biggest defeat (outside of the self-inflicted disastrous Obamacare rollout). It is also another opportunity to remind the American people that the alarmist predictions that we were all subjected to about the devastating impact sequestration would have on our economy didn’t materialize. Yet, in a new move, Republicans are once again considering caving to Democrats and getting rid of the spending cuts. This morning’s Wall Street Journal has the following. Still, officials close to
President Obama’s repeated use of presidential powers is causing a tough problem — his own supporters now expect him to use it to achieve everything they want. From immigration to the minimum wage, congressional Democrats and liberal activists this week urged Mr. Obama to declare an end run around Capitol Hill, assert executive authority and make as much progress as he can on the expansive agenda he laid out for his second term. A day after Mr. Obama denounced income inequality, progressive lawmakers said he should take the lead by issuing an executive order requiring all federal contractors to pay
Three crises, one president, many bewildered friends. The first crisis, barely noticed here, is Ukraine’s sudden turn away from Europe and back to the Russian embrace. After years of negotiations for a major trading agreement with the European Union, Ukraine succumbed to characteristically blunt and brutal economic threats from Russia and abruptly walked away. Ukraine is instead considering joining the Moscow-centered Customs Union with Russia’s fellow dictatorships Belarus and Kazakhstan. This is no trivial matter. Ukraine is not just the largest European country, it’s the linchpin for Vladimir Putin’s dream of a renewed imperial Russia, hegemonic in its neighborhood and
Entering his sophomore year at Occidental College, Barack Obama sought a political movement to match his personal awakening, which he signaled to friends and family at the time by reclaiming his African first name. Barry became Barack that year. He had read Du Bois, Fanon, Malcolm X — an array of authors writing about the black struggle for liberation in his country and in others shaking off the legacy of colonial rule around the world. That is where he looked for — and found — a figure and a cause to channel his rising political enthusiasm: Nelson Mandela, then imprisoned
I´m generally for more disclosure in campaign finance, but the best argument against requiring full disclosure by groups engaged in political speech is that politicians sometimes retaliate against their critics. Sen. Elizabeth Warren inadvertently made that very argument this week. As told by Ben White at Politico, a group called "Third Way" criticized Warren. Warren apparently suspected that Third Way´s criticism of her was funded by banks. So she wrote a letter to bank CEOs demanding they disclose which political groups they´re funding. Warren sits on the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. She´s basically telling the entities
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
