Benghazi penalties are bogus
New York Post, by Josh Margolin

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/26/2012 8:41:06 AM

The four officials supposedly out of jobs because of their blunders in the run-up to the deadly Benghazi terror attack remain on the State Department payroll — and will all be back to work soon, The Post has learned. The highest-ranking official caught up in the scandal, Assistant Secretary of State Eric Boswell, has not “resigned” from government service, as officials said last week. He is just switching desks. And the other three are simply on administrative leave and are expected back. The four were made out to be sacrificial lambs in the wake of

How surprising. s/o I´ve never seen more lies and corruption coming from one administration. It´s just sickening.

If they fired these 4 dolts, they would immediately threaten law suits to be regain jobs. Such suits would lead to "discovery" proceedings to gather evidence. Discovery would require sworn testimony & full disclosure. The last thing Obama wants on any of his multiple failures is discovery proceedings since liars can be charged with perjury.

parents have disappeared from public view and survivors never made it to the public. I shouldn´t be surprised, but part of me actually thought someone (even low level someones) would be punished. I can see now that my cynicism over this administration has not been wasted...

This regime is losing patience with keeping up the whole charade of democracy and governance by consent of the governed.

What they do and how they do it is clearly none of our damnbidness.

Our founding fathers would revile the loss of our precious inheritance of liberty.

And the watering of the tree of liberty would commence.

They just misspelled "resigned" - meant "reassigned". The tip was when they waffled in one piece about how some had "left" and others "were on leave" or some such euphemism. And they were deliberately unspecific about who was doing what. In the first report, Boswell´s was the only name given.

In the Obama administration it´s "Watch my hands."

The Ambassador warned of growing al qaeda presence in Libya. Now it´s been reported that training camps, established by elements loyal to Ayman al Zawahiri provided support for the Benghazi attacks.
1st: what was being reported by the nest of spooks operating out of the Annex.
2nd: At first reports of the assault on our people at the consulate, why didn´t we bomb those suspected camps, at least out of retribution? It´s not like this Administration is against retribution. (Think taxes and regulations on the rich.)

Has the official explanation advanced significantly or is it still in “mistakes were made” mode? Isn’t “mistakes were made” some kind of twisted, perverted, pluperfect subjunctive, actually-says-nothing-meaningful tense or the like? Isn’t it about time we find out who issued the voting present, noncommittal type of order to “Stand Down!”?

The ball’s in your court, Mr. Obama. Or should we say it’s teed up and the fairway awaits?

It´s a very sad time in American history that "we the people" can´t seem to get the truth from anyone in the gov´t or press about Libya. I don´t see the republicans pushing for any truth telling about Libya. The dems I expect to hear nothing from. I wish that Bill O´Reilly would push for the truth with the same effort he made for the soldier imprisoned in Mexico. He was very successful.

Pretty soon, the holes in the dike will be too numerous to plug. When that happens, and I firmly believe it will, just get out of the way and enjoy the sight. Personally I hope to see this whole administration drown in its own man-caused disaster.

It looks as though all G-Anything and all politicians are trash. Perhaps not, but it sure appears that way. I do not and never have passed judgement on anyone for the simple sin of being a human being. Believe me when I say I have made my share of bad judgements. I just detest a hypocrite and I detest a bully. I accept no masters in my life other than my own weak soul. It is always best when one has only yourself to blame. So how about it? We, the American citizens who give a darn, we are to blame. Isn´t it high time we fix this corruption and deceit of, this outright distortion of our Constitution? If not, we need to leave of shut-up. We can never leave it to somebody else...

Ho hum! Obama runs guns to mexican drug dealers, innocent mexicans get killed, a U.S. Border agent is killed. Big whoop! Obama bypasses the constitution and joins a war against libya without any approval, runs weapons to al qaeda in libya who use them to kill our Ambassador and three others. Oh, so what! The "people of color" (thousands of them) in the Red Hook housing project in brooklyn still have no power. Oh Big Deal. Heaven help us. He´s an appalling President. Destructive. But the people elected him again. It´s over folks. It´s over.

David Brat, the long-shot challenger to Congressman Eric Cantor (R-VA) in Virginia´s 7th Congressional District, is demanding an investigation into the new executive director of the Virginia Republican party, Shaun Kenney, after it was revealed Kenney´s consulting firm is now on Cantor´s payroll.

The White House has announced that John Podesta, President Obama’s current Counselor, will lead his delegation to the Holy See for the Mass of canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II on April 27, 2014. Podesta will head the delegation which will also include Rep.

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

Michael R. Bloomberg, making his first major political investment since leaving office, plans to spend $50 million this year building a nationwide grass-roots network to motivate voters who feel strongly about curbing gun violence, an organization he hopes can eventually outmuscle the National Rifle Association. Mr. Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York, said gun control advocates need to learn from the N.R.A. and punish those politicians who fail to support their agenda — even Democrats whose positions otherwise align with his own. “They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he said of the N.R.A.

Kristine Kirk, 44, called for help around 9:30p.m. Monday, telling dispatchers that her husband Richard Kirk, 47, was ´talking about the end of the world´ and ´scarring´ their three children. A source told FOX31 investigators are looking at whether he had eaten a marijuana cookie.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

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

Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. 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.

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)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
