Further Reflections on Benghazi
American Spectator, by Andrew B. Wilson

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/18/2013 6:13:54 AM

Write in haste, repent at leisure. The article that appeared in this weekend’s TAS under the title “Obama Fiddled While Benghazi burned… and an election approached” was one that I wrote racing against a deadline. While there is nothing I want to take back from this weekend’s article, there are many things I’d like to add… for the sake of readers who believe, as I do, that this story — this shameful but instructive story of dereliction of duty in the highest office of the land — should not be allowed to fade into the dimly remembered past

I don´t know if I believe that Obama simply vanished during the night of the attack. But it´s better to have people to think that than the possibility that he actually gave the order to stand down. He can´t possibly have told Panatta to do what you must,then walk away.That´s dereliction,even for Obama.

Whether the dereliction was deliberate or substance-induced, it blew into a crisis that Axelgrease spun masterfully, aided and abetted by Hilary Clinton, Susan Rice, Candy Crowley, and, no doubt behind the scenes, the Iranian ValJar.

There has been so much more to this story that we haven´t heard that I find it amazing, but not shocking that the American Pravda media hasn´t had the least bit curiosity in following up on, and perusing it.

I highly recommend this article.

Why has Charles Woods, father of Tyrone, totally dropped out of sight? He was very vocal at the beginning, but somehow he has been shushed.

FTA: "Those who have retained the ability to think straight and act with courage need to wrest control of past from the present-day masterminds who, if given the chance, will destroy everything. "

This statement is very powerful. Read it, again and again. This is inclusive of both sides of the aisle in Congress.
This brings to the forefront the pandering to the camera for McCain and Graham during the Hagel hearing and now their Limp statements of why they will vote for him.

The libs would say, "time to move on", just like the Trinity church execution style murders. It´s all just bumps in the road to the downfall of the US. Dead counts mean nothing to communists: If anything it´s like the swastikas and rising suns on WWII fighter aircraft, signifying kills.

I´ve had a little trouble with the scenario that Obama was smuggling weapons to Syrian opposition forces. I honestly believe Obama is rooting for the other side. The Muslim Brotherhood has formed a truce with Iran and I believe Obama is a true believer. Now, if Brennan was running the show that might make a difference.

Obama was running a secret war in the ME, off the books and out of the chain of command, thus unconstitutional and illegal. For details read the book, Benghazi: The definitive report, by Brandon Webb and Jack Murphy. The man in charge was John Brennan. The Benghazi crisis threatened to expose this illicit war, and it became imperative to put all possible distance between it and Obama, even if that meant making him look unpresidential. (Clinton did the same.) The Brandon-Murphy book is available in Kindle version for $2.99.

So glad to see this is a Must Read. Be sure to click on the link to the mentioned cartoon:

~~Chip Bok, the cartoonist who illustrated my weekend article, did another superb cartoon contrasting how the mainstream media cheered Cindy Sheehan (who lost a son in Iraq and became a national hero for camping out on George W. Bush’s doorstep) and ignored Charles Woods. This was history in the making and, I fear, a nation in the unmaking.~~

A heartening thought... after an early morning trip to John Wayne, stopped by Inspiration Point in [v liberal] Corona Del Mar to pray, and driving back home on Ocean Blvd in front of a $5MM home was a surfboard with Benghazi written down it...

#19, the "us" is the Conservative voter who has allowed the "bottom line mentality" of Limbaugh, Hannity, Beck and O´Reilly to crowd out the search for facts AND the ability to recognize them.

Embracing the crazy side of the party COST US THE ELECTION.. We (Conservatives) cannot govern if we are shut out from state and federal positions because of being seen as (and often are) out of touch with reality.

If we don´t reel in the far-right, 2014 will see us lose the House too. And if Rand Paul runs in 2016, we can kiss the White House good-by.

If we can´t win, we can´t govern.

I wouldn´t put it past the metro-gay denizens of Barky´s bathhouses to fully embrace sharia as a way to re-gain cultural control and wrest it from the hands of the dominant "alternate lifestyle" females in charge at the moment.

The Islamic treatment of women is really the 800 pound gorilla in the West Wing.

And it should be on the networks every night.

No excuse in the world would be good enough to absolve Obama of his responsibility in this matter. Totally unforgivable! What cowards these people are - Obama, Hillary just to name two - for being afraid to tell us the truth. We deserve the truth.

My thanks to those who are continuing to keep this story alive and front-center. The men who died that day deserve nothing less.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American
Plane, but No One Seems to Know Why

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

Obama offers new insults,

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

´Deeply Ashamed´ Ferry Captain

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

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

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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

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'

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

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
