Benghazi, Libya, deteriorating
into security nightmare

Washington Times, by Ashish Kumar Sen

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/3/2013 10:28:57 PM

Security in Benghazi, the eastern Libyan city where four Americans were killed Sept. 11 in a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate, has decayed to the point where Westerners are fleeing, assassinations and kidnappings are rife and residents worry that U.S. drone strikes on jihadist targets are imminent. “The situation has obviously deteriorated. It is a systematic deterioration,” said longtime Benghazi resident Jalal Elgallal, who was spokesman of the now-defunct National Transitional Council. Mr. Elgallal recently escaped harm from a nearby bomb blast as he waited in his car at a traffic light.

The left woke up everyday during the arab spring,hoping a missile took out Gadaffi who really hadn´t bothered anyone in 10 years or so.

Obviously gadaffi had his faults but he provided stability in an unruly country. Now these rebels are sitting there with nothing to do or no where to go and the US twiddles their thumbs while heaping praise on Hillary for what a great job she did over there.

The arab spring was supposed to be a uniting force among all these countries to get on the ball and wipe Israel out. What´s happened is people have terrible lives and realize getting rid of Israel isn´t going to change that.

Egypt is in just as bad a shape except they have some leftover structure from the old government. In Libya,nothing happened without Gadaffi knowing about it,including knowing where every light switch was.

Obama and his cohorts suckered these people with the promise that Mubarak and Gadaffi´s wealth would be redistributed. They had to know all this money was in secret accounts and wasn´t disposable.

I still can´t understand why even the lapdogs, oops- I meant to say the press, can still say she did a great job. I would hope that at they do not sleep well at night. It´s a simple question - who gave the order the stand down. Also, where are the people that the Seal saved? Surely one of them must a spine to come out and thank the Seal´s family.

It seems to me that Obama sat out the real Arab spring when he ignored the protests in Iran. Support for those men and women would have done more good than his actions in Lybia and Egypt. Apparently, he felt his support of the Muslin Brotherhood was a winner even though he ignored the deaths of the Iranians who were attempting to throw off an oppressive theocratic government. Makes you question his loyalty to the idea of freedom, doesn´t it? He may, indeed, have an affinity for tyranny. Nah, if he did we would be feeling here in the United States. /s

I think #5 has a very good point. Obama´s non reaction to the Iranian uprising (their Green Revolution) was a flashing neon sign to every Jihadist and Muslim Bortherhoodie to go forth and upset the apple cart.

The US under Obama did nothing for a status of forces agreement in Iraq so we may lose Iraq after all. Afghanistan - well, what more cna be said that hasn´t already about that he!! hole.

But hey, Hillary might get a Nobel Peace Prize...woohoo.

The only good thing about the deterioration in the Mideast is that it might be so bad by 2016 that Hilary won´t have a chance at the Presidency.

Good point, #8. With America´s future in the world in the hands of conceited "geniuses" like Obama, Kerry, and Hagel, the next few years should be an epic disaster, and not just in the Middle East. But College Graduates populating the Bos-Wash corridor are no longer embarrassed to be Americans, and are hopeful that foreigners will like them better and gush all over them the next time they go overseas for a vacation.

If you liked Hillary, you’re going to love Kerry. Hillary’s legacy is going to blossom in the hands of Horseface. One benefit to the country is that Hillary will no longer be drinking on the public’s tab. That should be good for a couple percentage points boost for the GDP.

It´s the Arab Spring initiated by the Obama Administration foreign policies that have caused this Middle East turmoil. Who can they blame it on today ? Maybe Hillary, since she has resigned and is planning to take away from Obama´s celebrity status by planning a 2016 run for office. Probably sound´s good to them, attacking two bird´s with one stone.

Lets not forget that Bill Ayers, his murdering wife and a bunch of SEIU thugs went over to Egypt to gin up the Arab Spring. Anyone who thinks they did that without specific instructions and funding from zippy is beyond foolish.

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
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. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article

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
dirt on Harry Reid’s reputation

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

   

 



 
Democrats settle on fairness
issues hoping to avoid a repeat
of 2010 midterm disaster
Washington Post, by Wesley Lowery    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/13/2014 10:16:38 PM     Post Reply
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

For Hillary Clinton and Boeing,

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

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Three people were shot and killed Sunday afternoon in suburban Kansas City, and a spokeswoman for a local hospital said a 15-year-old boy is in critical condition. Overland Park city spokesman Sean Reilly says two people died at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City campus and one was killed at Village Shalom, which is a retirement community that is several blocks away from the center. Overland Park Fire Department spokesman Jason Rhodes said Sunday afternoon that one person of interest is in custody. The Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

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

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday. Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results.
