Politicizing the Truth
Washington Free Beacon, by Bill Gertz

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/6/2012 5:23:49 AM

The CIA removed references to al Qaeda in the talking points it drafted for United States Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice in what critics say is part of a broad pattern of politicization of intelligence under the Obama administration. Current and former intelligence and policy officials say that the politicization in the case of Benghazi appears to have involved policies that were designed to minimize the threat posed by Islamist terrorists in general and the al Qaeda terrorist group in particular prior to the Nov. 6 presidential election.

It´s more like trying to obscure the truth. These people must think Americans are really dumb. In light of recent election results, they may have a point. But we all heard and saw Clinton, Rice, Obama and all the usual suspects peddling the knowingly false narrative that the attacks were spontaneous demonstrations caused by an anti-Islam film for which the U.S. simply could not apologize enough. Clinton explained that our laws prevented us from beheading the filmmaker and hanging everyone else allegedly involved in the film. Obama bowed and scraped before a hostile anti-American United Nations and said how much most Americans loved and respected Islam and what a shame it was that a few "misguided" individuals who did not understand Islam would dare to insult the Prophet. Again he patiently explained why beheading and hanging blasphemers was not possible because of certain American "traditions." But America did find some totally unrelated and probably trumped up charge on which to arrest and imprison the filmmaker who, as far as I know, still languishes in durance vile.

This false story, a story the Obama administration KNEW from the beginning was false, was peddled and pushed for all it was worth for WEEKS. It´s on tape. We have the evidence. But with the help of their news media, the Obama administration is trying to flush all this down the Memory Hole and to change the subject to the irrelevant question of who said/did/wrote what among a dozen or more government agencies. It´s like there are so many people responsible, NOBODY is really responsible.

Baloney. Obama is responsible. He lied about what happened and instructed others to lie. They are STILL lying, this time about the original lying.

If Obama is allowed to get away with this, there is nothing to stop him from doing anything he wants. He has already decimated our economy, strangled small business, road-blocked our energy independence, and taken over our healthcare. He is in the process of dismantling our military capability and weakening America on every front.

Who or what is able to stop this power-hungry evil? We deride him as being a narcissistic, self-appointed king, but that is exactly what he is. So what if people make fun of him? Our Constitution, at the moment, isn´t worth the paper it´s printed on.

So why did Mitt Romney go along with the gag? He could have blown it wide open in the later debates. He didn´t. Why?

And why did he bother to have lunch in the White House?

Why did this seemingly good man get played?

This is just a lengthy statement of what we all knew already. What is not stated here is that Benghazi is about to become Fast and Furious II. In another article this morning, there is strong eviendence that guns supplied to the Libyan Rebels have ended up in the hands of the terrorists who attacked the compound. Zippy will, no doubt, get another pass on this as well. The slobbering media will fall all over themselves to make sure no blame what so ever is placed on Zippy´s shoulders.

The American people are not stupid. The truth about the November election is so much worse than we are prepared to deal with. Read "Master Plan to Steal an Election" at www.brushfires-of-freedom.com/steal-an-election.html

Our ´numbed down´ culture doesn´t like ugly words like ´evil´. But it´s right in front of us, and there is no other word for it. It took us a long time to see the evil that was Hitler, but we finally did. So there´s hope.

"The links were tenuous and therefore it made sense to be cautious before naming perpetrators." [...] "No one wanted to prejudice a criminal investigation in its earliest stages."

This might be plausible, except there was no caution about blaming a Youtuber. Whoever this official is, is officially lying.

And isn´t it great that petty legalisms are in the way of American foreign policy? *No More Lawyer Presidents!*

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American
Plane, but No One Seems to Know Why

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

´Deeply Ashamed´ Ferry Captain

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

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'

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

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.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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?
