Obama to UN: It's Not
My Fault Stevens is Dead

Breitbart's Big Peace, by Joel B. Pollak

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 9/25/2012 1:15:05 PM

Passing the buck in dramatic fashion on the world stage, President Barack Obama told the UN General Assembly this morning that the U.S. government was not responsible for the anti-Islam video that he once again blamed for recent attacks on U.S. embassies in the Middle East. He added that more guards at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi would not have helped save Ambassador Chris Stevens, and that the real problem was "deeper causes" such as religious intolerance. "[I]t will not be enough to put more guards in front of an Embassy; or to put

Comments:
He didn't even mention the SEALs who were also murdered. They're just an afterthought to 0bama or to be used when it is politically expedient.

This is sad for those three others that died. This is a disgrace by our President. The parents and wives of these brave men should be outraged as well as all Americans. I hope voters will wake up and see that Obama does not care for this country. We must defeat him on November 6th.

He's right. Religious intolerance was also the cause of the murders of two people when a suicide car bomber attacked a Catholic church in Nigeria during Mass this past Sunday.

Tolerance is a two-way street.

It is true, nothing bad, stupid or shortsighted is his fault. His biggest faults, working too hard, caring too much. Don't believe me? Just ask him or the nearest reporter.

I have seen the video. It is innocuous, by my standards, partially played for laughs, and not as amateurish as we have been led to believe. Only a Muslim could be upset with it and it is not hateful, disgusting or pornographic. In fact, it is reasonably tasteful and the actors are well costumed and pretty good actors.

The blame game goes on... 0 does not care about foreign policy. He handed it all over to hellery, and she turned the State Dept. into her ideal of the peace corps. Now, America haters all over the world are encouraged, because they have found the door unlocked and the fort unprotected. Remember, even Barny Fife had one bullet...

0 is carrying on business as usual, hoping that the islamos are satisfied with his lip service. But, all of our embassies are sitting ducks waiting for the next round of terror and murder. And, they still hate us.

Obama is living in a fairyland. He is essentially saying that there is no such thing as effective security at American embassies and consulates that could keep a determined band of Muslims from murdering American diplomats unless the world caves to the demands of those Muslims.

If the Muslims did what they did in Benghazi to a Russian embassy or consulate, it would not be long before the Russians responded with brutal force, the Muslims know that, so you don't see the Muslims messing with the Russians.

FTA - "He added that more guards at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi would not have helped save Ambassador Chris Stevens,...."

Well yeah, if you don't allow them to carry arms then most probably more guards would not have helped. But if you allow the guards to carry weapons then I would point out that you just haven't seen a Bushmaster Chain Gun being fired or a 50 cal. Machine Gun. Both of which could most certainly changed the equation a bit.

I am going to choose to be religiously intolerant when it comes to the Muzzies. If they want to kill all non-believers, I don't have to tolerate that kind of dreck.

I've seen the video, it was on youtube.

It is a poorly done play of first grade quality that has adults acting poorly done parts. I have to suppose the Mooslime's problem is that it portrays Mohamad as a man born to a woman not married, he grows up a dolt and womanizer. I was insulted by the extremely poor story line and plot let alone the Mooslimes ranting about their 'prophet or profit or whatever'.

Anyone that can get worked up about this has to be a low grade moron...nuff said.

BO - "Eees not my yob!" Imagine an employee sitting in a supervisor's office for his first yearly review. The company he works for had very high hopes for him, but he's screwed up everything he was hired to do with his arrogance, taking too much time off & publicly trashing the boss. Yet he sits there with a straight face & blames his predecessor for all of his mistakes. Then in the next breath, he asks that he keep the job so that he can keep doing the same. How many bosses would keep an employee like that on?

I believe every nation has to go through an Øbama disaster to wake itself up. Remember, even Britain had a Chamberlain before they had a Churchill. I know; the damage the Øbama's cause is horrible, hellish, in fact- and costs many, many innocent lives. But, that is the way of nations. Let us pray that we get away with nothing more than these few brave Americans lost and the hot flush of such embarrassment world wide. We can re-build after our disaster. But, also, let us resolve to never again allow such a creature as Øbama into our White House!

If I was a conspiracy theorist I could have a field day with this. Egypt only as Libya is another story. There is circumstantial evidence that Obama conspired with the Muslim Brotherhood to stage the protests over the film. He did meet with them before the protests began. Word is out that some protesters were paid. The purpose is to control hate speech (i.e. anti-Obama speech) in America. Don't laugh. Obama said something that many have missed in his UN speech. "We insisted on change in Egypt because our support for democracy ultimately put us on the side of the people." WE INSISTED. People here are smart enough to know that Obama may have done more than just support the Arab Spring. I'm having those closet Muslim thoughts again. Like he did with Fast and Furious he may think that if he repeats the movie lie long enough people will believe it. Then there's that executive order he plans to sign soon to give him the power to hit a kill switch on the internet. So he's going around Congress again. It's probably paranoia but I have learned to hope for the best but expect the worst from Barry. Anyway it's fun to pretend to be a mystery writer and speculate.

Stevens was not just Ambassador, probably CIA asset and in grave danger from the start of his clandestine arrival in country. To take a video months old and hardly seen by easily manipulated illiterate Muslim thugs, and then use taxpayer monies to produce in rapid fire an apology to the Muslim world...infuriating beyond words.

I know this is awful, but I have to partially blame Stevens for his own demise. As a big lib/prog himself, he had to know that this administration was not going to be concerned with his well being. And certainly, as such, he was part of the misguided way of thinking they all suffer from, but come on! Even if I was an ardent Zero supporter, I seriously doubt I would trust this administration to protect me as they throw me in the lion's den. We know this already, but we all need to recognize that these people don't think like the rest of us. It's like the idiot yesterday who jumped intl the lions area at the zoo because, he "wanted to be with the lions". Help me here to understand this way of thinking.

The fact that the Candy in Chief is still using the video excuse , makes me wonder if the video wasn't
produced and planted by Axelrod cut outs.
This way, if a terrorist attack happened on the Candy in Chief's watch before the election, they could point to the video
as the culprit, not Candy's failures.
Candy insults private security firms , many made up of former Operators , like Academi ( Blackwater )
and the military by saying they couldn't have
prevented the murders.
He obviously believes a Muslim mob
will always be superior to our guys.
The trailer looks like a 5th grader
made a spoof ala Borat.
It's one step above a cartoon.
It obviously doesn't take much for Obama's people to burn , rape and behead.

He set the stages-he is supposedly the most powerful man on earth. Too bad it is negative power--the power to tear down, kill, or blow up, even if it is just rhetorically.

The Boffo as the ultimate weapon in the commies that went democrat and the muzzies and both who xuped unsuspecting blacks with hate anad envy and lies (the Devil's tools) actually is caught as the face of the movement and about to be found out, IMO.

And the socialist presstitutes? Are the semi-liberals in the media yet starting to squirm? Or, IOW, are their any honest left leaning journalists.

Joel Gilbert at the Press Club Dinner speech video showed the Journalist creedo of 1905 and told them they should be doing it. Luckily the internet makes them superfluous if they don't.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Dem Rep: Obamacare will bury us

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Father Ray Kelly, the singing Irish priest who shot to fame with his wedding ceremony cover of “Hallelujah,” will perform in New York, on Tuesday May 13, to support the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform. On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth. As his video gathered traction online Fr Kelly was a guest on RTE’s “Late Late Show.” He told host Ryan Tubridy that he hoped his new found fame

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Bill Clinton White House angered a black congressman in 1993 after he was forced to show his ID and submit to a search of his car before Secret Service would allow him to enter the White House for a meeting with then-Vice President Al Gore. A white driver taking Ohio Democratic Rep. Louis Stokes to his meeting was admitted without an ID-check. A staffer´s memo to Clinton a week later warned the president about the incident before a scheduled photo-op including Stokes and the mayor of a Cleveland suburb.

The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a rule that would, if implemented, guarantee that even more Americans who like their health insurance plans cannot keep them. Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

Parents in El Paso, Texas were outraged over an “inappropriate” homework assignment given to fourth graders at Pasodale Elementary School. Students were asked to read passages about a wife discovering her husband cheated and a mother finding out her military son was killed. They then had to answer questions about the adult-themed topics. Read some of the assignment below: Valerie opened up the letter from the military department. She felt the pit of her stomach drop to the bottom of the earth before she even opened it. She knew it was news about John. As she read the first line,

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came. Armed.

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

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

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

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

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.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

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?
