BenghaziGate: Obama Admin
Knew Libyan Terrorists Had
US-Provided Weapons

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/5/2012 10:52:26 PM

In a story that’s been largely buried by the media for years upon years – and was doubly buried in the aftermath of the Benghazi terrorist attack on September 11 resulting in the death of four Americans – the New York Times is now reporting that US-approved arms that were supposed to go to Libya rebels went to Islamist terrorists. Even more importantly, the Obama administration knew about it before, during, and after the Benghazi attacks. The Times reports: No evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided

About time this story began to leak out.
I´m quite sure that most of us reading this thread knew what was said in this article...and much more.

NY Times: ...: the Obama administration clearly was worried about the consequences of its hidden hand in helping arm Libyan (Islamic) militants, concerns that have not previously been reported....

Obama´s multiple lies over Libya may finally be unraveling. To update his anonymous WH staffer´s quote from 2011: When you lead with your head up your behind, you can´t be honest about it.

Well, let´s just see what happens. I´m not confident anything will come of this no matter what damning information comes out. The Dictator will skate right on through is my pessimistic prediction.

Neither am I #3. The reason Nixon was brought down was because of the never-ending amplification of a fairly minor event by the press. Do you think the press will display the same tenacity regarding Benghazi?

Interesting the NY Slime differentiates between Libyan rebels & terrorists... They´re both from the Muslim Brotherhood.

Seems they are trying to place blame on Qatar... The arms were being recovered by our guys, from Gadfly´s supply & sent to the Mo Bro´s; Why would Qatar send arms to Benghazi? Duh.

we all look forward to the supposed end of the wapo, nyt, boston globe, etc. but what is taking their place? not enough people who aren´t already of the conservative persuasion read this and other "right" sites and those newspapers are still being read by many people and not all dems. benghazi, fast and furious, the supposed financial cliff are all being written about by the left press lens and it´s pretty rosy, at least to me. if obama is out in four years, i´ll eat my hat. we are well on our way to a dictatorship and i´m out of energy and ideas. anyone else have any?

So, Obama knowingly, deliberately armed elements of al-Qaeda and their terrorist offshoots in Libya, resulting in four Americans being MURDERED....

....and there are still no questions about Benghazi from Brian Williams, Diane Sawyer, Scott Pelley, Wolf Blitzer, David Gregory....

It´s a set up, Canada Free Press has a report about the agenda, Behghazi the weapons distribution center for Obama/Cliinton, and Syria the ultimate aim. They want WAR in Syria with Russia and China. A staged chemical attack perpetrated by us, will lead us to boots on the ground and a step closer to war. 100,000 Russian troops already in Syria, NATO is on the way.

I recall Hillary, along with someone else in the administration, telling Congress at the time of our participation (leading from behind, R2P)in the NATO action on the side of the "rebels" in Libya that some of the "rebels" may be al qaeda, but she couldn´t be certain. She knew darn well, but she threw that out there just in case. No one rose out their chair and demanded to know why we would be supporting al qaeda, but then again McCain, Rubio and Graham were all for leading from behind over there.

The "Fog of Obama" continues to enshroud most all of this regimes activities.

We may have a "Perfect Storm" of dictatorial excess, institutional complicity, media cheer leading and public apathy here.

We will not, however, be the first country to surrender our future to the cannibalistic predations of a parasitic and malevolent government.

This is a well worn path.

AND now WE know "why" the MSM has been reporting on the fiscal cliff. To keep the news away from the Middle Eastern Fast and Furious...

Note: When obama moves his right hand -- watch out for the "left" hand....

When obama opens his mouth to speak -- assume it´s a lie.. It always turns out to be.

the liar/in/chief is incompetent as a president -- but he´s a d@mn good liar...

Catherine Herridge at FOX News has been saying for many, many weeks that Benghazi is all about the Obama administration gun running. I will add... gun running to Islamist terrorists. And, eventually we will find out that Stevens was snuffed because he knew too much.

#7, my suggestion - not that it´s particularly practical -- is for rich Republicans e.g Koch bros, Sheldon Adelson, Steve Wynn, hedge fund guys -- to buy Comcast. That provides control of NBC, MSNBC, CNBC and Meet the Press. That would be an MSM outlet to join Fox and counter ABC & CBS. That´s my solution.

"the New York Times is now reporting that US-approved arms that were supposed to go to Libya rebels went to Islamist terrorists." First of all, Libya rebels ARE Islamist terrorists a/k/a al Qaeda. Second of all, the NY Times knew this BEFORE the election because everyone who was paying attention knew it. But they let Obama win anyway. The Times is beneath contempt.

Anyone waiting for the tank media to connect Obama´s dots to yet another debacle ,
is in for a loooong wait.
Just the other day , Dana Milbank penned a column where he expressed red hot outrage that Romney was
going about his private life instead of stepping up and helping Obama with the fiscal cliff.
I´m not making this up.
They will never deviate from their mantra that Obama is as pure as the white cocaine he used to snort and smoke.
And Republicans are evil monsters .
Before this is over , George Bush and Dick Cheney will be the fall guys.

I agree with #22. All the chatter on the election postmortem is so much smoke and noise. NOTHING will change until the main stream broadcast media is neutralized! They have spent the last 40 years propagandizing and dumbing down the public by treating them like mushrooms (keeping them in the dark and covering them with manure) to the point that they only believe the democrat/labor/socialist line of reasoning anymore. I´m not convinced there isn´t a couple of conservatives rich enough buy out two out of three of CBSNBCABC and make honest news organizations out of them. The should be JOB ONE on the conservative agenda before any other future plans are made. Until the people are told the truth in America, things will not turn around.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

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

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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?
