America in the Age of Obama
PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/16/2012 5:03:32 AM

Breitbart quotes a tweet by CNN correspondent Frances Townsend claiming information by Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr that David Petraeus will testify that he knew the attack on the Benghazi consulate was terrorism “almost immediately.” The “same source” claims he will say Susan Rice’s talking points ascribing the attack to a video came from the White House. If Petraeus really does testify to this effect, he will inescapably be alleging under oath that the president was a liar. Even if the testimony is restricted strictly to Benghazi and not its aftermath, the crucial question remains: did the president abandon?

Just so everyone is clear about the Democrats´ intentions:

When America elects a credible commander in chief who acts as a responsible commander in chief, the Democrats ridicule, demonize and try to bring him down, to the advantage of our enemies (think Reagan, George W Bush). But when America elects an entirely non-credible commander in chief who acts irresponsibly as commander in chief, the Democrats prop him up by any means necessary (think Carter, Clinton, Obama).

It should be crystal clear, that in fact the Democrats do not want a credible, responsible commander in chief who acts in the best interests of the nation. Quite the opposite.

Before he gets on any planes, I hope Petraeus leaves notarized copies of the real story with a few people who won´t be bought off.
.... As for Hillary, apparently the run-and-hide bit isn´t going to work. I heard last evening that she, too, will testify. Will she repeat her infamous testimony of yesteryear by telling Congress that she ´can´t recall´ the incident?

I must admit that I have little faith that any of this testimony will take place .... unless the video footage becomes a blue dress. Videos such as this usually get ´lost in the fire´ or simply disappear.

Well, the President IS a liar. And the simplest and most effective way to say that is not to speak it but to show those real-time videos of the ambassador being dragged out of the consulate. If that had been done before the election, President Romney would be being sworn in this January.

No, those weasels hid the evidence and got their co-conspirator press corpse to help them evade any discussion of their lies just long enough to run out the clock and allow Obama to remain in power. Now, he and they believe he´s untouchable.

Let ´s see how untouchable he is. Show the video.

Does anyone who reads Lucianne really expect anyone testifying in Washington, DC to ever tell the truth?

Is there any honest person serving us in DC?

Today, I truly doubt it. They all seem to avoid, skirt around, and purposely deceive in order to ride a fence.

Disgusting are they all.

I don´t think it will really matter WHAT obama is or does as long as certain people get their stuff. Same goes for the dem party. Along with the U.S. Constitution, they seem to have pretty well jettisoned the Ten Commandments and every other law of a civilized nation.

Everything that is said about the Democrat Party and it´s unwillingness to defend America is true. However, to Obama supporters, this is a non-issue as long as they continue to get their government handouts.

If Gen. Petraeus hasn´t figured it out yet, this hearing today is where he´ll get his reputation back.

Then the inevitable ´´were you lying then? or are you lying now?´´ questions come up, all he has to do is tell the committee who came up with the video story. (And that line sounds exactly like a Hillary thing. Let´s not lose sight of the Huma factor in all Hillary does.)

I still smell set-up in this entire event, from before what is known, to this nanosecond. But who was (is?) being set up? Deep into the bowels, we go.

Despite Petraeus´ stupid indiscretion (of the what could you possibly been thinking variety), as a military leader he put his men first.

I truly hope he ends his career with the honor he has shown during that career, not this one. This administration MUST be exposed for what it is, criminal. Four men were left to die, begging for help, while Washington watched it in real time.

As for the FBI´s "recovery" of classified documents in the woman´s home, in the age of the Obama Justice Department, the words "planting of evidence" is not out of the question. I trust nothing they do.

I hope Petraeus does the right thing.

Forty years ago we learned everything we needed to know about that third-rate burglary known as Watergate and Nixon resigned over it´s cover-up.
But that was America forty years ago.
Moral relativism and political correctness have combined with rampant gimme,gimme-ism today and it wouldn´t matter if Obama killed Ambassador Stevens himself - this will all come to nothing. He is beyond teflon. Obama is untouchable. The media is beyond incurious. They cover for him.
So this is what it feels like to live in a banana republic under a tinpot dictator.

Right now, Petraeus is the only one in a position to bring Obama´s reign of terror to a stop before it gets gulag ugly.

So it´s gut check time for Petraeus. Is he a standup guy willing to temporarily forget about his own hide and tell the truth for the sake of his country, or is he a butt-covering uniformed version of Hillary Clinton?

the reason the libbies don´t want a responsible commander/in/chief --- IS (thank you bubba clinton) --- they are under the direction of SOROS. SOROS´ game is to do to America what he did to England with the collapse of the pound. He made a killing in England financially and now he´s pulling all the money out of America --- SO -- what´s his game plan?

WORLD ORDER.........

Hence the "taking" down of American pride and freedom...

SOROS wants serfs to do his business. He´s sitting on piles of English and American money.

#6 sums it up for me. Furthermore, now that missiles are being lobbed into Tel Aviv since Hamas has been given the ´green light´ with the re-election of urkel, expect Petraeus/Benghazi/Amb. Stevens, Doherty, Smith and Woods to slip right off the radar of the American psyché. I imagine all the free 0bamaphones will be lit up calling each other to find out the latest on honey-boo-boo, jay-z and schnookie.

FTA: "When pressed to identify who came up with the infamous “Mohammed video” talking points, neither Clapper nor Morell could recall the person responsible."

Perhaps they can´t remember BECAUSE the introduction of the talking points was carefully scripted and managed to PREVENT identification of their source, BECAUSE the "´Mohammed video´ talking points" were a prepackaged narrative, in the can and ready to roll out on 9/11, BECAUSE the administration knew beforehand that there would be 9/11 demonstrations in Cairo and set up a false narrative like the "war on women" designed to link American Christians and by extension Romney and Republicans to the video and to middle east unrest. Might as well subtitle the whole thing "Mitt Romney - Dangerous American Christian."

Remember - the American embassy in Cairo put out its apology half a day before the "spontaneous" demonstrations even began. Will someone on one of these committees please call to testify under oath the person from the Cairo embassy who issued that premature apology? Please.

Just the SOS for obama. The America hating , bent on destroying the responsible hard working business and citizens president. Nothing happened with Fast and Furious and Nothing will happen with Benghazi because the left has the press propaganda machine and the right are afraid of it. The war for America is lost to the antiAmerican hatred from obama and the compliance of the sanctimonious idiots and greedy worthless who voted for him. The last stand is with the states and if those governors go along with raising taxes, as I read this morning, then we are finished economically and defensively.

All due respect to my fellow L-Dotr´s, but the well-bent General Petraeus is not very likely to stand up and save the country.
His wife has a fantastic Federal sinecure, with a huge pension down the road.
The General, even though currently out of a job, also has a huge golden parachute of a federal pension waiting for himself.
Blessed Hussein will be President for four more years.

You think Petraeus will suddenly develop scruples which will endanger all of this?
If so, I have some lovely swampland, I mean lakeshore property, in Northern Minnesota for sale.

The ´You Tube Made ´Em Do It´ excuse was no doubt set up by the Obama White House to play the stall until after the Election. Pure and simple.

9/11/12 caught the Obamunists with their panties at their knees.

The Constitution is scotched. We just can´t believe it has come to that.
Well, It has come to that.

I read that 80% of the US population has been born since the Shuttle Challenger blew up. That is 1986. So few remember the USA of our parent sand grandparents lives. Looking back on Reagan is like the people of Reagans´s time looking back on Truman.
It is just time passing and numbers of people. (for me, I add there was an awful lot of Abortion too- 40 million, maybe more)
The schools I was told do not teach any history befor about 1880. I can´t find any teachers yet that can confirm that. But all this does explain why people are morons about this guy, Obama.

Agree with posters who believe this will have little to no affect on Obama.

Enough Americans spoke last Tuesday and all they care about is their free cheese, phones, birth control, etc. The reputation of this country, our standing in the world, etc means nothing to them. If they even think about it - they think the US has it coming. We´re all one world now. gag

This country is not the same it was in 1973 during Watergate. And there appears to be not enough of us who do care to effect anything.

Romney was correct - Obama bought his victory with gifts at our expense; financially and morally.

Let´s save some time, and find out now, that the President, with Hillary and Susan Ricearoni, were inciting belief in their video, to hide the reason for the attack.
They made the spark, the stupid video, and then they blew on it for weeks, hoping to get ignition in the form of riots in the ME.
The attack was to end the buy back program of Gadaffi´ s stinger missiles and other worthwhile weapons to be acquired suddenly, by Obama´´s jihadists. by removing all security. The Navy SEALs were told to stand down while the hit on the bag man was carried out. It was supposed to be too late within the first hour of the attack. Chris Stephens friendship with the two SEALs was unplanned, and complicted the overthrow of the compound and the wearhouse full of weapons. We bought them back from the holders, gave them big bucks, then permitted the lot to be stolen. They will be used to attack Obama´s/muslim enemy, Israel. Fast and Furious II.

What I worry about is that Obama might be President for MORE than 2 terms.

Remember O´s admiration of Hugo Chavez, muzzled press (not the MSM, but US), and his nationalization of multiple industries.

If given the chance, O would no doubt try for a 3rd term - rationale being that FDR did it, and if we don´t let him do it, we´re being racists. (Never mind that the 2-term limit Amendment wasn´t passed when FDR was alive).

Poster #13 on the original article, did anyone read that post? No. 13 has a very interesting story line. If I were a writer, I´d take note of that scenario. Set a trap, catch ALL the DDC commies (also known as demorats) and then release spring the spring. Not only does the hero catch the Reds in DC, he succeeds in revealing the MFM for what they have become....the machine for the Regime and the party....and that is NOT our father´s Democrat Party.

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 7:32:56 AM     Post Reply
Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Gorgeous Easter Eggs From the

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The Bundy Ranch Standoff

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
