A Lesson for the Media
American Thinker, by Leo Rennert

The Senate Homeland Security Committee report on the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, which killed four people, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, makes for painful reading. The committee´s findings, following a review of thousands of documents, shed new light on the utter confusion that prevailed at the highest levels of the administration in the days following the attack. Although U.S. intelligence almost immediately recognized the incident as a premeditated terrorist attack, administration officials, from President Obama on down, hedged and pretzled their comments to a fare-thee-well.

The lapdog media will continue to what the administration instructs.

"At a minimum, a careful reading of the Lieberman-Collins report should prompt editors and reporters to permanently retire "militant" or "fighter" or "guerrilla" when TERRORISTS strike. But sadly, don´t count on it. PC has too firm a grip on media."
With the pressitutes cheering on the Won, for sure don´t count on anything he doesn´t want.

"Utter confusion" my jackass. Obama, Valerie Jarrett and the Axelrod team knew precisely what occurred and more importantly, how to spin this grievous failure so that Obama would not be held responsible. The blame the video smokescreen was concocted to shift focus away from Obama´s failure to protect the consulate, to respond to the 7 hour attack and to have to explain the failure of his Libyan intervention. In addition, the video blame game kept Obama from having to explain why there were 32 CIA agents at a Benghazi annex and why none of the 32 have yet to testify to Congress. Do these 32 all have the Hillary blood clot problem?

So, lesson in Benghazi is that Obama will issue & repeat any and all self-protecting lies. And, that our news media will work overtime not to see through the obvious lies in order to protect Obama.

Not too long ago, the majority of the US public would have been calling for heads to roll over an incident such as this. To be sure, a small segment is doing just that.

Today, however, it will take something more than demonstrable, catastrophic incompetency -- resulting in the avoidable deaths of Americans -- to make the average pop-culture citizen pay attention.

Disability and welfare checks not showing up on time might do it, but not this.

Stevens sent security requests straight to the WH afer being stonewalled for months by the state dept.Obama has willful ignorance on this of course.

The people that bungled this were acting under orders,that´s why they weren´t fired. All they would had to do is file a wrongful termination suit and it would have all spilled out.
Besides Obama just gave them a raise also.

What we need is a whistle blower to step up and give the real reason he was denied help. But who do you go to in a totally corrupt administration??

Timeline scattered and buried in report, Washington DC time:

3:40PM attack begins
4:32 Sec Def office informed
4:40 Stevens missing
50 Panetta, Obama, Dempsey in same room together in White House
50 President briefed
5:10 UAV arrives Benghazi; eyes open
60 Annex attacked with RPGs
60-80 Panetta discussions with DOD
71 First attacks on Annex end
7:15 Tripoli forces (TF) arrive Benghazi
7:15-10:15 TFs held at airport by Libyans
8:39 "GO" order transmitted to FAST team in Spain
114 TF arrive at Annex
11:14 Annex attacked using mortars, Woods and Doherty killed
11:26 Second attack ends
1:40AM Everybody out of Libya

Some questions:

Where was Obama and what was he doing from 50 pm until 14 am when it finally ended?
Where was Jarrett during this time, and was she in contact with Obama?
Does anyone else suspect the TF were held at the airport to set up the mortars for the second Annex attack?
What in the world were they doing at DOD for TWO hours, when they watched the attack real time during the first hour, and did nothing?
What was the “other location” the UAV was diverted from, and what do we think went on there while we no longer had eyes on it?
Why did it take until 8:49 for a GO order to be transmitted to the FAST team?
Why wasn’t a GO order issued at 5:11?
What happened to the FAST team? Are they still circling the airport?

I watched lieberman on c span, along with collins, and he had the audacity to say that there was no direct evidence that showed any involvement by hillary. But no one interviewed hillary. Nor did anyone on that special commission, created by Hillary, bother to interview hillary.
This is a joke. But no reporter will ask lieberman or collins why they didn´t interview hilllary.

There is a mammoth cover-up going on here. Why did they want to kill Stevens?

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

Democrats target 30 House
Republicans on immigration
Politico, by Seung Min Kim    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2014 3:08:34 PM     Post Reply
House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2014 2:28:49 PM     Post Reply
Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

UC Irvine Should Immediately Rescind
Its Invitation to 2014 Commencement
Speaker (and War Criminal) Barack Obama
Washington Free Beacon [DC], by Andrew Stiles    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2014 1:34:30 PM     Post Reply
Note: This post was inspired by the #DropDropbox campaign. On March 20 the University of California, Irvine, announced that Barack Obama will give the commence address to its class of 2014. This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship. It makes sense that UC Irvine would want an accomplished, high-level, well-connected individual as their commencement speaker. There is no doubt that Barack Obama is an

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

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

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

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

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)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
