In an article published shortly before 5 a.m. EDT on the morning of Sept. 26, The Daily Beast's Eli Lake revealed that three separate U.S. intelligence officials confirmed to him that within 24 hours of the September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, the Obama administration had strong reason to suspect al Qaeda ties to the deadly violence. Lake noted that the identities of at least four of the participants in the attack on the consulate were found within 24 hours, one of which has been tracked by his use of social media.
Is anyone surprised the massive Obamedia is carrying Obie's water? They have to deal in important stuff, like Obama's message to posters that now he's "pleased" with some polls, but not so pleased by others. Look for the pollsters to line up and lockstep NBC's lie of Obama being 12 points ahead and it's over for Mitt.
Of course they skipped reporting news. We underlings are under some delusion that news organizations report news. THe first rule and really the only rule for the Kneepad media is to drop on its collective knees and swallow whatever the Democrats spew forth. And the Dems will never tell the Kneepad Media to report anything that questions Da Won competence or makes Hitlery look old and tired and forgetful and silly and disastrous
heard this on a local radio station this morning...obama got that "3.a.m. call" and went to bed. He did nothing...said nothing..but went to bed....whataguy..... i cant help but think this is all going according to his plan....
It is at least heartening to see that 60% of us do not trust the media. Journalists have such high hopes coming out of college that will be iconic trailblazers in the world of media and instead they end up laying down with the rest of the dogs and professionally prostituting themselves for the lies of liberalism. Sites like this one thrive because the true elites in this country are those of us who look beyond NBC news to get at the truth.
I don't know why anyone would base anything on what they see on the "Network Morning Shows". It has been proven time and again that the MSM networks purposely omit facts and are in an unholy alliance with the Øbama regime. If we don't throw out the deceptive Øbama in November we are in for a very bad next four years. We should all throw away our TVs also and cut our ties to cable. Cable TV has morphed into some kind of monster in our lives.

Hate to keep writing this but if President Bush were in office now and all this had occurred on his watch the MSM would be sure he would not be re-elected in November.
After the election we should find a way to pay back the MSM for its shameful behavior.
If obama is desperate enough he can order a October surprise drone attack that he and state run media say took out the perpetrators of the Libya attack. obama and the media can declare a big foreign policy victory without any proof that the attack really took killed the terrorists who murdered the 4 Americans. This is obama's America. Grab a tight rein. It can only get worse.
WILLIAMS: It’s agreed, then. All we say is that the FBI is investigating the incident and Attorney General Holder promises a full accounting of what happened once the FBI has completed the investigation at some point before the end of the century.. SAWYER: So, no context? PELLEY: When have we ever worried about context? Context is Fox’s thing. WILLIAMS: Don’t even say anything about the film or Islam. Religion is just too hot a topic right now. We’ve got to tread carefully. SAWYER: Good point. What’s your lead tonight, Brian? WILLIAMS: A former priest who claims he facilitated an affair between the Pope and an American cardinal during the last papal election. Both refused requests for interviews to present their side of the story. SAWYER: Damning. Ours is an exposé of Catholic adoption services. The records show a disproportionate number of children placed in America go to couples who are in the top 25% of income. The agencies deliberately discriminate against couples who can’t support the child. Can you imagine? WILLIAMS: And they call themselves Christians. It’s like Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac saying, hey, no American dream for you: we’re not going to help you buy a house you can’t afford. What’s up at ''60 Minutes'' this weekend, Scott? PELLEY: ''Celibate Nuns: a Vanishing Breed.'' SAWYER: I’ll say. Who’s on ''Meet the Press'' Sunday, Brian? WILLIAMS: Round table: Assad, Ahmadinejad, and Mullah Omar. They’ll discuss the forthcoming fatwa against John Sununu and why freedom of speech isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. PELLEY: Who’s on the other side? WILLIAMS: Maddow, Olbermann, and Ed Shultz. SAWYER: Nice balance.
The Obama administration knew that if the media would cover them on the Fast and Furious operation that they would continue to run interference on anything that would remotely impact Obama negatively. They did, they are and they will continue to do so. It is disgusting that these lying corrupt propagandizers are not outraged by the loss of American lives that can be laid at the feet of this administration. It is all a means to an end for them and the end is Obama's re-election no matter how many Americans have to die. Obama truly is their god.

The term "enemedia" says it all. The only way to beat them is to starve them out of existence. Stop watching them. Unsubscribe. Create or follow truthful sources. Openly refute the lies at work and among friends and acquaintances. Be a change agent for the truth.
Romney should definitely use this in the first debate. (Perhaps as a follow up of the Obama Clinton debate, i.e. the 9/11 attacks in Libya shows the world and Americans what Obama does when he gets that 3 a.m. call; he rolls over in bed and goes back to sleep.)
I call them the cult for the WH ...they are under his spell. They care more about him than the country...sad. The dems sent 200 lawyers to Alaska to investigate Palin (found nothing negative) yet can't send one person to Libya to invested 4 American deaths.
The main stream media has become completely irrelevant. The only purpose they serve today is to aid the socialist commies that are running the government in its great design to destroy America as we know it. They said they would destroy America from within and they are doing exactly what they said they would. Why are we surprised?
#11- That's not enough anymore. If the media insists on being a part of the story, it's time every citizen they interview demands answers about why they are not covering the scandals of this WH.
It's time to start protesting and using civil disobedience against the MSM. They are complicit in the destruction of our Constitution and way of life. They are derelict in their duties, and enabling the destruction of Free Speech. WE need to stop this, not wait for someone else to do it. Turning the channel is not enough. WE need to Breitbart every journalist we come into contact with, film them and demand answers.
It's past time to use Alinsy's rules against the MSM, and then against other grievance / victim protest groups and collapse it from within. Chick-Fil-A proves we can be effective. But we can't do it without action.
You don't WATCH TV INDOCTRINATION (they call it "news"), YOU MONITOR IT, and keep notes on the lies. The Diane Sawyers are sworn comrades of the TV Mafia Media, sworn to be the Protection Racket for all gvoernmet crimes, bribes and greed. While you're monitoring, cut off the sound to all pharmaceutical ads that are there solely to implant new illnesses in your dumbed down brain. Talk about propaganda. The Sawyers are bad eonough protecting fascist, commie government and Islamic world terrorism, but throw in the damage each "medicine" ad can do and network TV newswatching is dangerous.
Thinking Americans everywhere should begin a wholesale boycott of all lying media news program advertisers immediately! It's an outrage that they purport to be news outlets. They have nothing to do with news and everything to do with propaganda.
I wonder how Obama survives all the hatred of the Muslims. Egyptian presidents Nasser and Sadat did less provocation. And they got the dirt nap. so I think all these Obama manuevers are cleared ahead of time. and Vice Versa.So there is no meaningful shooting,and just BITRs. Also Rush ran a montage of 11 reporters saying the same phrase on "47% victims etc" on the morning tv. but it happened fast-just since what obama said yesterday...
Well, of course the Nitwit Morning shows skipped that boring stuff about Libya. Their audience has no idea where or what a 'Libya' is and besides, it cuts in on the good stuff like the latest on Schnooky and Honey Boo Boo. /s/
If Da Won's mother was still alive and he had his hands around her neck - choking the live out of her on national tv - the media would report that he was just giving her a hug. It is a outrage how they protect and cover for him!!!!! November 6th can't get here fast enough!! Go Romney!!!!!
Remember how the Democrat Party and their corrupt Media Mouthpieces insisted for YEARS that we should just get over the September 11 attacks, stop using it as a campaign issue, stop mentioning it and just get on with our lives?
Well, the Democrat Party and their corrupt Media Mouthpieces DID move on. National security isn't exactly a strong issue for Democrats....
That's why they're ignoring the fact that Barack Obama failed to increase security at American embassies on September 11th, 2012, despite numerous warnings out of Libya and Egypt warning of degenerating security conditions....
They simply DON'T CARE.
More Americans were MURDERED on September 11, 2012, and the MFM can't be bothered, because asking legitimate questions might hurt the election chances of their Lord and Savior, Barack Hussein Obama....
Can you imagine these clowns reporting from Pearl Harbor? "There's nothing here to see folks, move on....in other news, President Obama is flying to LasVegas to tape THE VIEW and Letterman and then he and Michelle will be vacationing in Japan"...!
Our FCC Chairman, Julian Genokowski is running roughshod over the Internet patch and threatening reforms all while the broadcast television networks blatantly slant, omit and cover-up actual news reporting.
Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —
A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.
Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.
After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.
The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”
President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that
Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.
VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.
When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.
Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.
I hope I´m not too late to the fight.Last week, freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) held an old-fashioned filibuster against the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA. Paul´s stated reason for taking to the floor and talking for 13 hours was that the Obama administration wouldn´t give him a straight answer on the question of whether the president can unilaterally order the killing of American citizens on American soil with "lethal force, such as a drone strike … and without trial."
An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue. And to make things worse, the story that followed was riddled with typos. According to the New York Post, which reported the same story earlier on Thursday, "79.3 percent of city public-school grads who went to CUNY’s six two-year colleges arrived without having mastered the basics" of reading, writing, and math, and had to take non-credit remedial classes to catch up.
He thought he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — but it turns out he’s “just another boring straight guy.” ABC News editor Don Ennis strolled into the newsroom in May wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig and announced he was transgender and splitting from his wife. He wanted to be called Dawn. But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don. “I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing
The truth about Benghazi, the Associated Press/James Rosen monitoring, the IRS corruption, the NSA octopus, and Fast and Furious is still not exactly known. Almost a year after the attacks on our Benghazi facilities, we are only now learning details of CIA gun-running, military stand-down orders, aliases of those involved who are still hard to locate, massaged talking points, and the weird jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. We still do not quite know why Eric Holder’s Justice Department went after the Associated Press or Fox News’s James Rosen — given that members of the administration were themselves illegally leaking
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”
Washington--As hundreds of commuters emerged from Amtrak and commuter trains at Union Station on a recent morning, an armed squad of men and women dressed in bulletproof vests made their way through the crowds. The squad was not with the Washington police department or Amtrak’s police force, but was one of the Transportation Security Administration’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response squads — VIPR teams for short — assigned to perform random security sweeps to prevent terrorist attacks at transportation hubs across the United States.(Snip)With little fanfare, the agency best known for airport screenings has vastly expanded its reach
A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –
WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch. That would explain why most U.S. posts in the Persian Gulf are on lockdown, including the U.
In an interview for The Guardian Weekend magazine, actor Matt Damon recently weighed in with his thoughts on how President Barack Obama has handled the scandals that have engulfed his administration since the spring. Damon, a vocal supporter of the president since his 2008 campaign for national office, said that Obama is overcompensating for his lack of military background with his tough response to controversies like how the government is responding to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. The actor said that Obama is allowing himself to “get bullied” and is acting as though is “manhood”
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus threatened to pull the group’s partnership with NBC and CNN for 2016 GOP presidential primary debates if the networks moved ahead with plans to air films on Hillary Clinton. “If they have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting on August 14, I will seek a binding vote stating that the RNC will neither partner with these networks in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates they sponsor,” Preibus said in a statement. In individual letters to CNN President Jeff Zucker and NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt,
The Pentagon has placed its elite cadre of special operations teams on full alert to launch preemptive attacks against suspected al Qaeda targets across the globe, according to reports. The American special forces teams have spent the past week waiting for U.S. military and intelligence officials to confirm the whereabouts of the terror cell plotting to attack U.S. diplomatic outposts in the Mideast and North Africa. Unnamed sources told CNN on Monday that the teams were poised to carry out the preemptive strikes, but declined to comment on where the U.S. forces were located or which potential
Oprah Winfrey on Monday said the killings of Trayvon Martin and Emmett Till are the "same thing." This transpired during an interview with The Grio that aired on NBC´s Today show. OPRAH WINFREY: It´s so easy during this time: Trayvon Martin, Trayvon Martin parallel to Emmett Till, let me just tell you. In my mind, same thing. But you can, you can get stuck in that and not allow yourself to move forward and to see how far we´ve come. Really? Martin and Till are the same thing?
In an exclusive interview for The Grio, NBCUniversal’s African-American news and opinion website, Oprah Winfrey weighed in with her unvarnished thoughts on the killing of Trayvon Martin and the acquittal of George Zimmerman. Winfrey said that, in her mind, Martin’s murder and that of Emmett Till in 1955 – whose killers were also acquitted – were the “same thing.” However, she added that it is important to keep in mind how much race relations in America have progressed over the last half-century. In a clip of the interview which aired on NBC’s Today, Oprah told The Grio’s Chris
Two Republican senators said Tuesday that they´ve personally urged the Egyptian government to release Muslim Brotherhood prisoners, after hosting meetings with top officials in Cairo as part of an Obama administration-sanctioned visit. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who is in Cairo along with Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-.S.C., made clear that the two U.S. lawmakers are representing the views of Congress and "do not speak for the White House." Still, they are among the most prominent U.S. representatives in the country this week, as a wave of international mediators tries to nudge the country´s military-backed government to resolve the standoff
