Network Morning Shows Completely
Skip Report That Obama WH Knew
Libya Attack Was Terrorism

NewsBusters, by Ryan Robertson

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 9/27/2012 6:42:43 AM

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.

Fighting feelings of despair here. If this is going the way it seems to be, the coming years are going to be an ordeal for the entire world.

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

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.

Cabal

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.

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.)

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.

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...

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....

I think I'm going to throw up.

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 —

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.

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.

Diplomacy downplay: Obama administration
minimizes latest North Korean nuke threat
Washington Times, by Guy Taylor and Shaun Waterman    Original Article

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.”

Why Obama´s ´Best-Looking Attorney

The Atlantic, by Garance Franke-Ruta    Original Article

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

Charles Murray´s Gay-Marriage Surprise

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.

With a Speech, Cardinal
Set Path to Papacy
Wall Street Journal, by Stacy Meichtry    Original Article

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.

Obama in Jerusalem

Posted By: Oblio- 3/16/2013 7:43:15 AM     Post Reply
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.

"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."

No, 80 Percent of NYC High School

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.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

Six months ago, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa subpoenaed the emails of former head of IRS Tax Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner. Lerner was in charge during the IRS´ inappropriate targeting of conservative, patriot and tea party groups. IRS officials have failed to comply with the subpoena and today during a hearing on Capitol Hill, Issa threatened IRS Commissioner John A. Koskinen, one of only two political appointees at the agency, with contempt. "Unfortunately you´ve been more concerned with managing political fallout than complying with this Committee," Issa said, urging Koskinen to comply or "potentially be held in

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

Via America Rising and the IJR, is this the key that finally unlocks the enigma of Harry Reid, tinpot demagogue? Maybe, from moment to moment, this guy just … doesn’t realize what’s coming out of his mouth. Hard to believe he could forget saying on the Senate floor that all ObamaCare horror stories — all of them — are a GOP/Koch brothers fairy tale designed to besmirch the stellar reputation of the Affordable Care Act. Those remarks got heavy coverage in conservative media, and even got picked up at WaPo. You don’t toss a grenade that powerful without choosing your

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors. The medical profession has never before remotely approached today’s stress, work hours, wasted costs, decreased efficiency, and declining ability to focus on patient

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.
