The White House left Ambassador Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, and Sean Smith on their own on September 11 in Benghazi. That is the upshot of today’s Capitol Hill hearing featuring Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey. After a pre-scheduled afternoon meeting, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified that he never heard from President Obama the night of September 11. In fact, Panetta said, he had no further communication from the White House that night—even as the attack turned deadly. This is truly extraordinary—and appalling. And both Panetta and Dempsey admitted

So when do the impeachment hearings begin?

Obama and the Democrats do not believe in the words of the U.S. Soldiers Creed:

"I will never leave a fallen comrade."

Obama and the Democrats do not have our people´s backs. That is a fact.

And yet Panetta and the joint chief betrayed the nation by letting Barack Obama be reelected. Shame on them all the incompetent slugs.
The Admiral and general who tried to rescue were removed and silenced.
Where are the people the two real men died to save? Are they fiction too and merely a phantom to cover the murders of of all 4 of Obama´s victims?

This is abject criminal neglect! Four Americans died but it could easily have been the entire staff of the Embassy, raising the total to close to 40. I am enraged that our citizens were crying out for help, and nobody could be bothered to coordinate an effective effort to aid them. What a total disgrace, and Panetta´s analogy of a 9-1-1 call is insulting beyond words.

What utter incompetence by this administration. This should have all come out before the election. This guy was never ready to be president and still after 4 years has not the slightest idea of what he should be doing. I´m almost ready for a military coup just to keep our country safe for the next 4 years.

Our president... went to bed. He told Panetta to take care of it.

Our commander in chief...WENT TO BED.

He could care less if Americans died.

And the mainstream media thinks this is ok.

What about the chain of command? He´s CIC, they aren´t. Unless I´m wrong, it was up to him alone to authorize AFRICOM to go in. No one else had authority. This could be big if the Republicans push it. Something is fishy with his flaky disappearance.

Obama may not have called Panetta but what stopped Panetta from calling Obama? It is not true that Obama was not available. He was in the oval office as late as three hours after the attack started. He and Biden then left the oval office to talk to Netanyaheu on the phone. The call lasted one hour. Obama is seen on tape returning to the oval office at 72. He was met at the door by an aide who started to brief him on something. What else but Bengazhi?

I have been skeptical about the exchange for the blind sheik story but this is the man who gave us fast and furious. Everyone was told to "stand down". The Americans who took it upon themselves to disobey that order may have disrupted a charade.

16, they´re busy grieving the loss of their loved ones. Knowing they were betrayed by the country they so faithfully served is a pain deeper than any of us will ever know.

They tried to get answers before the election and were regularly on Fox demanding answers. When it became clear they would be stonewalled by the administration and the press, they realized both they and their loved ones were betrayed.

Remember that day in september, 2008, when the two opposing candidates were out west campaigning? And the financial crisis came to a head? And John McCain suspended campaigning and rushed back to D.C.? And the kenyan klown did not?
And when he was asked why he didn´t go back to D.C., the kenyan klown said, ´they (the u.s.senate) will call me if they need me.´

Therefore, we had plenty of warnings about the disengagement of the president. Such disengagement is often the product of being a pothead. Those potheads float through life, smiling and hedging.

The article says Obama issued a directive to take care of it. Voila - he´s in the clear. The fact that no one was apparently on the receiving end of the directive has not yet roused any interest in the media.

On upcoming trip, Obama
will try to pivot to Asia - again
McClatchy Newspapers, by Lesley Clark    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:19:38 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the departure

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

Rapist’s painting hung in the White House

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

Martinez and the War on GOP Women

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it. How would American Indian

Some good folks are pig-biting mad about my recent article noting that the rate of foreclosures has dropped dramatically as a result of the reinflation of the real estate market.(Snip for tweet)Some of the vituperation is coming from the usual gang of housing justice fairness activists incensed that anybody (let alone a majority of homeowners and experts) would oppose the practice of giving public assistance to people who borrowed money with no intention of paying it back. But a lot of the abuse stems from a sentiment I agree with — that declaring victory on mortgage defaults means you have

Timing is everything in politics and the latest Fox News poll suggests the timing of the 2014 midterm election could not be worse for President Obama and his fellow Democrats. With public approval of Congress in the single digits, senators and representatives in both parties may face the most challenging political environment of their careers. But the Fox survey makes clear that things aren´t breaking well for Obama, either, and his popularity rating may be the most important factor in determining how Democrats fare in November. Presidents have been unpopular before. Harry Truman´s approval rating sank to 23 percent at

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

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?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
