Where Was Obama on Night
of Benghazi Attacks?

Rushlimbaugh.com, by Rush Limbaugh

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 2/7/2013 5:11:28 PM

RUSH: I mentioned that the Senate Armed Services Committee hearings on the Benghazi consulate attack took place today. Up first, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Martin Dempsey testified, and he threw Mrs. Clinton under the bus here. McCain said, "Why didn´t you put forces in place to be ready to respond when all broke loose over there?" DEMPSEY: Because we never received a request to do so, number one, and number two -- MCCAIN: You never heard of -- of the Ambassador Stevens´ repeated warnings about the lack of security?

Dereliction of duty by a Commander in Chief who ignores pleas for help from Americans under attack: If this does not rise to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors, nothing ever will.

I don´t remember Hillary ever being asked, or volunteering the information, as to where *she* was the night of the Benghazi attacks. Does anyone know?

I think he was on a drunken bender, or else partying with Beyonce. Maybe both.

From 6 pm to midnight, where WAS Obama?
There was nothing on his calander, and he left for Las Vegas the next day.
He never touched base with Panetta or Hillary to keep up with what was happening in Benghazi during the night.
He just disappeared...... POOF

He was watching tv and preening in front of a mirror for his appearance in front of celebrities in Hollywood the next day.

Which 0bama are you referring to?

There are several of them, you know - - all interchangeable - - just as there were several Tommy Rettigs who were rotated in and out of the role of Lassie´s young master.

The fact that the White House was willing to volunteer that Obama went to bed when an American consulate was
under siege , with the welfare of 30 +Americans , including the Ambassador ,
was unknown
indicates that Obama´s actual behavior that night must have been much worse.
The fact that he was not a participant nor interested in the unfolding national security crisis is
textbook Dereliction of Duty.
The media glosses over the fact that Obama was also MIA during a failed al Queda attack on a Northwest Airlines flight on final approach to Detroit on
December 25, 2009.
Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was tackled by passengers as he tried to detonate a bomb concealed in his underwear on flight 253.
Obama did not become aware of the attack until
three hours later.
Three hours is a long time for a POTUS to be MIA during a terror attack.
" White House spokesman Bill Burton said Friday that Obama, on vacation in Hawaii, was informed of the incident about three hours
after the plane landed. Obama then held a conference call with Homeland Security
and counter-terror adviser John Brennan and NSC chief of staff Denis McDonough.
Burton said that in a subsequent call,
Obama instructed that all appropriate measures be taken to increase security for air travel.”
Good thing that there weren´t other airline bombers.
The Republicans grilling Brennan during his current CIA confirmation hearings must ask him about Obama being absent during yet another attack.
For context , Reggie Love was along on this trip to Hawaii.
A Do Not Disturb sign on their bedroom door is no excuse for this type of derelict behavior.

He knew what was happening the entire night. But he also knew the winds would shift and get ugly if the USA stepped in and he told us who he would stand with when that happens.

You know what?? Its over guys. OVER. No one but us here on Lucianne are interested. Oh, maybe a few on other sites, maybe a few others in DC, but for the most part, not enough are interested to make a difference. Boehner and his crew are wimps and pu$$ys, and will not stand up for the country. Chuckie Boy Scummer (intentional spelling) and his crew are more than willing and able to stand up to the pu$$ys, and Johnny Boy and others just bend over and take another..... Its OVER. The only thing left is to prepare to take care of our families. Maybe those of us who think alike can band together in our respective areas to help each other, and I would love to do that....but.....

Okay that still doesn´t excuse either of the two for not acting.
Look what happened to the two ranking officers who did try.. Ordered stand down then relieved of duty. Where are the 39 rescued?
Was Barry even in DC. it´s only a short jump to Chicago when you have rides on your side.

If it´s any consolation to the family of the four Americans murdered in Benghazi, Obama scrambled HIS jet to Las Vegas in a mere one hour, forty five minutes- the next morning.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and
causing them to lose their survival instinct,
researchers warn
Daily Mail (U.K.), by Mark Prigg    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/15/2014 10:32:21 PM     Post Reply
Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

White babies just 15 months old show racial
bias when picking playmates, study found
Daily Mail (U.K.), by Staff    Original Article

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

Unsettling video shows large
al Qaeda meeting in Yemen

Washington -- A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn´t know about it or couldn´t get a drone there in time to strike. U.S. officials won´t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda´s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen. Al-Wuhayshi, the No. 2 leader of al Qaeda globally and the head of al Qaeda

Donald Rumsfeld pens open letter to the IRS

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says he has ´no idea´ whether his tax returns and payments are accurate. Rumsfeld made the claims in a letter that was sent to the IRS and shared on Twitter on Tuesday - and says he sends the same letter to the agency every year. He also says he doesn´t even know if earlier tax documents are accurate for him and his wife. ´I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013,´ it reads. ´As in prior years, it is important for you to know that I have absolutely no idea

Americans increasingly prefer
Democrats on healthcare: Reuters/Ipsos poll
Reuters, by Gabriel Debenedetti    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/15/2014 7:40:12 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law´s

You can tell it´s an election year because so many noncrises are suddenly urgent priorities. Real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007, the smallest share of Americans is working since 1978, and the Russians are marching west, but Democrats are training fire on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics. "We have this congenital disease, which is in midterm elections we don´t vote at the same rates," President Obama said at a Houston fundraiser the other day. He means that the Obama Democrats are now what they call the "coalition of the ascendent," made

CBO Dire Debt Warnings Show
Nation´s Democrat Future
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/15/2014 7:30:57 PM     Post Reply
Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

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

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. 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. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

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
