Petraeus vs. Petraeus
Wall Street Journal, by William McGurn

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/20/2012 5:41:11 AM

When David Petraeus told Congress on Friday that he knew almost from the get-go that Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed in a terror attack in Libya, the former CIA director was contradicting information put out by two prominent Obama appointees. The first is United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice. The Sunday after the attack, Ms. Rice took to the talk shows to blame everything, falsely, on an Islamic mob outraged by a blasphemous YouTube video. Mr. Petraeus says the CIA´s original talking points mentioned al Qaeda. If this was edited out, we ought to know who did it—and why.

Who decided to release the 2010 photo and who began to characterize Agent Humphries as ´obsessed´ with the woman? Clearly, it was an organized attempt to smear Mr. Humphries and to divert attention away from the real culprits in the Zero Administration.

Amb. Rice was the designated front because of only one thing: Plausible ignorance.

She was fed a mendacious storyline, had no knowledge of the facts and was the perfect marionette.

She willingly agreed to the role and no doubt was informed of the strategy beforehand.

President Zero is about to find out that there are federal career employees, at CIA, FBI, Defense, and State, that are going to be coming out with the truth.
That is one advantage to having career civil servants. They help bring out the truth.

We´ve all seen people do what Ms.Rice did for Obama. In the corporate world you have both men and women who will do whatever it takes to move up that ladder. She was willing to take the risk that what she was saying was either accurate, or would not be proved otherwise. Petraeus had already gone before congress and backed the story she was peddling. This task had low risk and high reward written all over it!
Obama is completely right when he says he is the one to go after on this and not the little lady.

What a tangle they all weave.....

Washington DC is lost -- people.....

It´s up to US to stay local and work on "state´s rights".. Of course that is if you have a state worth saving. Mine here in Illinois is done -- so I´m selling and moving out. Thanks to the obama/economy that´s not so easy....

Much more than meets the eye with Ms. Rice. Take a look at this photo from the "Arab Spring". Scroll down until you see the "Fantastic 4".

Former political operative turned National Security Director Tom Donilon must be pleased that thusfar he has managed to fly under everyone´s radar regarding the alteration of the CIA intel report on Benghazi.

Charged with protecting Obie from any foreign eruption that might disturb the delicate balance of his reelection campaign during its final months, "taking care of" a messy thing like the Benghazi murders was surely part of his job description.

If you doubt me, read about him here and see what you think. New York Times puff piece written just 12 days after the Benghazi attack:

A Manager of Overseas Crises, as Much as the World Permits
By PETER BAKER
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/24/us/politics/tom-donilon-a-manager-of-overseas-crises.html?pagewanted=all

An excerpt:

“He is ferociously protective of the president’s priorities,” which is part of his job, said Kori Schake, who worked on President George W. Bush’s national security staff, “but comes down squarely on the side of the president’s political interests when they are at odds with our national interests.” She cited the timeline imposed on the Afghanistan troop surge, a move that mollified the antiwar left but has been criticized as premature.

Correction to #7. Tom Donilon is National Security Adviser. And the emphasis was added to the quotation.

#7, I´ve been wondering when McCain and Graham would wise up and haul the political hack Donilon before a Congressional Committee and put him under oath. Since most of the Obama-ites don´t even believe in God, people should make the basic assumption that Donilon will be lying.

As to Rice, I think she is so convinced of Obama´s "goodness" and so over-confident of her own judgment, that she never questioned the truthfulness of what she was being given as talking points. The fact that she never questioned why she, who in the president´s own words had nothing to do with Benghazi, was being sent out to explain what happened, tells all we need to know about her unquestioning slobbering devotion to the man. The woman has been involved in some of the biggest diplomatic and foreign policy failures in the past two decades, Rwanda genocide not the least.

Did the good and honest General ever explain why he told the big fib about the video when he knew the actuality? To me, this is more unforgivable than wife cheating.

The WSJ, always smug, as they are the WSJ, leads from behind and summarizes a story written numerous times by others. I wonder if the WSJ would address their questions to Obama, rather than its readers. I am just a little frustrated at the lack of courage from our press. Do your job. Get the truth and quit propagandizing.

Why did Gen Petraeus turn his back on his country? Between his September 14 testimony before Congress that the Benghazi attack was a result of the YouTube video, and his November 16 testimony that he knew it was a terrorist attack all along, all segments of the Obama Administration blamed the attack on the video. Four Americans were murdered, Al Qaeda is flourishing and a Presidential Election was at stake. Tragically, Petreaus waited until AFTER the election to state what he knew from the outset. Had he come forward with the truth and challenged even his “Commander in Chief,” he could have singlehandledly resolved the issue, and very likely altered the election outcome and changed the course of US history. He would have been the true American hero for generations to come. Duty, Honor, Country -- no "job" is worth more than that.

Its pretty clear that President Obama and his close in crew have been on a mission to essentially airbrush radical Islamist terrorists out of just about every terrorist incident that has occurred since he has been elected. To them there is no war on terror, at least that they will admit publicly.

Terror is a tactic that is being used by enemies who the Obama crew refuses to admit are there for everybody to see.

The terrorist incident at Fort Hood where a radical Islamist who infiltrated the US military murdered a number of US soldiers is a prime example, even though the terrorist was yelling "God is great" in Arabic as he was performing his murderous personal jihad, the picture of what was going on there could not be more clearer, yet the Obama crew classified the incident as an instance of "workplace violence".

And what did the generals who are responsible for force protection say after that? If you remember their response, you should not be surprised at the apparent lack of veracity in David Petraeus´s testimony and statements before Congress.

This country had the chance to turn the tide with a good and decent man--Mitt Romney--and refused.

What Francisco d´Anconia put up on the giant calendar above NYC applies:

As a conservative white male I feel that I am less and less a part of this polity and more of an unwelcome observer. I´m not willing to be discarded and I am willing to fight.//If things continue, I wonder if we´ll have a civil war? My side certainly has a lock on warfighting skills.

Obama appointed Susan Rice as the UN Ambassador, IMO, because of her name. In his tiny brain, he probably thought the morons who voted for him wouldn´t know the difference between Susan Rice and Condoleesa Rice - they are both light-skinned black women. He just piggy-backed onto what George W. Bush did by appointing Condoleesa as SOS. The same moron voters don´t know the difference between the UN and SOS.

It is turning out the Susan "ain´t no Condoleesa".

Nothing matters anymore about any of these things. This country is gone - never to be restored again. I don´t even think a civil war would work this time as the country has so many people who want the country to go on the path it is going (down the tubes) so that there is NO return. It does not matter what anyone says or does, Republicans, conservatives, and any other people who love this country. It is gone.....

Cults In Our Midst: Patty Hearst

The Federalist, by Stella Morabito    Original Article

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms.

Four years after Obamacare became law, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is notifying Medicare providers and suppliers of new fingerprint-based background checks. Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste. The new requirements are spelled

The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru
