Benghazi Worse than Watergate
PJMedia, by Roger L Simon

Original Article

Posted By:steveW, 9/29/2012 10:48:08 AM

For over forty years now, the Watergate scandal — the June 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters and the subsequent cover-up by the Nixon administration — has been the sine qua non of American political malfeasance. It has been followed by myriad other “gates” affecting both parties but has never been superseded. Until now. Benghazi or Benghazigate, as some call it, is worse. Far worse. Incomparably worse. Watergate caught numerous public officials lying, including the president of the United States, but Benghazigate has all that and more.

Comments:
Intentional. Complicit. Worse than a mere scandal. The Obama administration and their MSM palace guard have forever damned themselves.

Fortunately for them, the same media that recommends skittles pooping unicorns and freeze dried fairy dust will open the magic memory hole and poooof !

Gone.

No body died in Watergate.
4 people were murdered due to zippy's arrogance, Hillary's incompetence.
And yet Congress recessed? Really?
They all need to go...every single worthless blood sucking tick one of them.

Let's see, a two bit burglary in an attempt to get some info on Democrat plans followed by a cover up vs. a policy of appeasement of radical Muslims bent on world domination leading to the murder of a US ambassador and three embassy staffers followed by a cover up. Yep, I'd judge the latter worse than the former.

Lies on top of lies
and that is just the MSM.
NYT helpfully repeats that it's Romney's fault.

The effort to shift blame away from Al Qaeda and terrorists on the part of Obama is focused and determined.
The question is, why?

My take, We supplied the weapons to the muzzies for their arab spring party, we now want the weapons back, muzzies say no way barry, muzzies then go after the embassy using the weapons WE supplied, kill a few Seals and the Ambassador, and guess what? they keep the weapons, kinda like fast and furious for the arab spring break gang

That’s exactly right, #6, and Stevens was sent to Benghazi without security to negotiate the return of the weapons by his boss Hillary and the Kumbaya President. The leak of his itinerary and the location of the safe house was real time high level intelligence and my bet is that Hillary’s top aide Huma Abedin of Muslim Brotherhood fame was the source.

There would never have been a Watergate without the media. There will be no Benghazigate because the media will not report on it.

The Pubbies - - with Milquetoast Milt at the forefront - - are the most gutless pack of weenies ever to disgrace the face of the Earth.

They're hiding in the weeds while Zippy and his commie clique destroy our great nation.

We all can clearly see the atrocities which are taking place - - yet the Pubbies raise not a peep about them. The only way left for our nation to be saved is an uprising - - a true rebellion - - by people like us in the form of the Tea party movement.

I've posted often as to how much I despise the gutless weenie Pubbies - - and they've recently given me even more reasons to be revulsed - - not that I needed them.

I couldn't agree any more. As Native American , I despised all of these Folks before it was popular. Anything short of ABOLISHING this Government and PROSECUTING all of them is an insult to the American People. Look at what the Declaration of Independence admonishes us to do. Then get back to me.

Castigating Gov. Romney and other Republicans is tantamount to blaming your teacher when you fail a test. The anger can be overwhelming.

How is it that Ambassador Stevens sacrificially gave his life for this administration and the only thing this pResident says is, "There were some bumps in the road," referring to the terrorist attack on Letterman's show and no one in the LMSM screecher cares for the Ambassador over the callous comments of this Mary-Jane Smokin'Panda?

The View piglets were practically on their knees for him and yet eye-gouging Coulter for a book?

Who died because of Coulter's book compared to O-FUBAR-MA?

The most "violent" action that occurred in the entire Watergate affair was when G. Gordon Libby shot out a light bulb over a rear door at that hotel with an air-powered pellet gun.

So far the collapse of Obama's pro-Islamic foreign policy fiasco has resulted in 4 dead US personnel, a couple dozen dead "over-zealous movie reviewers" among the rioters, and to a varying degree the attacking/sacking/burning of embassies, consulates and at least one school.

Let's not even get started on Fast & Furious and it's implications to terrorism and border security. (One dead agent inside the US, two in Mexico and a couple hundred dead Mexican citizens - so far.)

When an irresponsible, arrogant, egotistical brat is put into the office of "Mayor for a Day" in some small town in fly-over country, it is funny, but usually no permanent damage is done.

On the other hand, an irresponsible (Not me! Bush did it!) arrogant, egotistical, 51 year-old adolescent-for-life marxist centered ideologue is put into the most powerful office on the planet - it is not merely worse than Watergate.

It is potentially worse than any scandal that has occurred in American history -- possibly in the fullness of time, than any that has occurred in world history.

Obama and Washington Democrats are so fortunate to have press covering for them. A Republican president would have been impeached or forced to resign long ago. Thank God, only a few more months and this nightmare will be over. What a wasted four years. The most corrupt and incompetent presidency in all American history.

Thank you #11 and #12. We have two alternatives and there is only one good choice.

If one goes back to 1952 and the Eisenhower/Stephenson election, one could find disagreements within the Republican Party about Eisenhower's "Republican purity" before he was nominated. However, once Ike became the Republican candidate, most Republicans got behind him, because to give another four years to the Democrat party was unthinkable.

Ike was an exceptional General in WWII and those skills carried over into his governing. Was he our best President? No, but he broke the long line of Democrat policies.

I believe Romney will be a very good President - only time will tell if he is great, just as in Ike's case (jury's still out). All I know is that his campaign theme was a good one "I Like Ike".

We need to shout from the rooftops: "Romney is Right" for these times.

Where are Boehner and McConnell on this? You know that Pelosi and Reid would be all over the media. They would have called press conferences and immediately connected it to Bush.

They are many in our party who would say that we must not go there. We must rise above it, but what has that gotten us? We are watching the swift decline of the republic and where are its defenders? The Republicans must understand that they must push back when a situation like this arises. It is their duty and obligation.

When it is clear that through this administrations' policies that Americans needlessly died, should they, at the very least, demand justice for these men? Mr. McConnell and Mr. Boehner, where is your honor? We don't expect an unhinged partisan rant but how about some sincere and honest questions. The families of these men deserve it.

FTA "To recap, this was an armed assault, not a spontaneous demonstration. The weapons used against us were likely in the hands of Al Qaeda because our President on his own put them there, and we are being denied our free speech rights as part of an elaborate ruse to keep the press from reporting the scandal and the voters from learning before the election what really went down." and the msm sees no story here? The msm has become a joke and they don't know it and don't care either.

It's becoming very apparent that the media controls everything in DC and in New York....

AND -- WE have to add hollyweird....

BUT -- WE the people own the ballot box -- for the most part -- except in california and Illinois -- so the October surprise will come in November when President Romney will be elected.

The media will shake their heads and wonder -- how could this happen. We gave them President Romney (thanks for the Rinos) thinking his Mormon roots would do him in and yet he survives.....

Of ye of little faith!! God is on our side.....if God is with US -- who can be against US?

I don't have time to list the things in Fauxbama's regime that have been worse than Watergate. That would take all morning and I've got things to do. The bottom line is that the LSM turned Watergate into the French Revolution 2.0 and the Benghazi enormity will be quickly brushed under the rug with every other catastrophe associated with Fauxbama. Our views of history are now so distorted by the LSM that it's difficult to even talk about a 'history' at all. They should all burn in hell for their lies and misrepresentations.

Chris. What cave do you live in? Over 80 percent of news media types voted in 2008 for the Choom Wagon Kid! When Klintoon ran, the numbers were similar.

I think people just expected more competent leadership out of the U.S. Government back in 1972, when a minor black bag job took down a president. Barry Soetoro does far worse on a daily basis and nobody raises an eyebrow. Possible reasons for zero Republican response to what amounts to a criminal act of treason and reckless endangerment by the president:

They are still afraid of his immature little temper tantrums.

They are being paid somehow for their silence.

They are actually speaking out but the media is refusing to broadcast it.

I'm going with reason (2)

Please forgive second posting here, but I am so disturbed this morning. I agree with #38-- nothing sticks to Democrats! This subject here is "old news" now-nothing to see here, move along. The MSM is on to the debates and how Mitt should look "nice and human" to the audience since he is obviously losing. Power line says they see the Republicans pulling back accepting a loss. All the conventional wisdom is that we have lost. The consequences of another Obama term are so horrible, it is fearful to contemplate. All I have in my arsenal is my vote and it apparently will not be enough....

Your rage is directed toward the wrong people. It should be toward the 'demonrat pols and the leftist media' who, by your own words 'destroy our great nation.'

Yes, IMO, more, much more should be done by the Republicans to at least publicize these scandals, but the blame should be lain at the feet of the ones doing it, not to other people for not stopping them.

Obama and his commie-muslim WH comrades rely on the likes of Diane Sawyer to lie for their outrageous, traitorous behavior. All of Washington relies on our evil unionized TV millionaires, called network newscasters, to protect all DC's betrayals and thievery. Our criminal behaving TV media Sawyers are like dope driven addict baby sitters who shockingly avoid their basic obligations of responsibility for all the little babies in the crib (in this case, the crib is Washington).

Though there are 3 more day 'till the 1st debate,consider that all our news outlets report the same polls,use similar,or near identical descriptive terms and the "script writers" getting their info from only 2 sources: Assoc. Press and Reuters.

Consider Catherine HerridgeL she does investigate and report NEW info, to FNC.

Why are the "stars" of the Cables,sitting on their duffs? FOX has "Campaign Carl", thats it! I suggest it is a money problem and their budget allows for Meghan & Bret to attend the debate, but none for "roving reporters" three days before, sampling the "battleground" states and meeting the voters. There are contests for Senators,House members and their findings could "interrupt" the narrative already written for the Stars back home. Shameful!

Re: #9 and 10- I also believe this is the only way to return to Constitutional government as intended by the Founders but it isn't going to happen. Even the (current) conservative majority is too complacent with the incremental erosion of governance by law, separation of powers, and voter integrity. The Tea Party is more concerned with this erosion than the average Republican but not to the point of action as you suggest. We study the issues, voice our displeasure, diligently vote (often for the least unfavorable candidate), and hope for the best. By the time definitive citizen action is required to save the US from the devolution into islamified communism, it will likely be too late. I wish it weren't so but nothing on the horizon portends otherwise.

Republicans not going after this scandal with a vengeance is breathtakingly stupid. Romney should hammer this every time he opens his mouth. What are these guys afraid of? Only FOX has a hold of this scandal like a bull dog (Bret Baier). I am disgusted.

My experience with soviet union media (I left USSR for America in 1992 when I was 47) is the same as nowadays in US - government and government media was lying blatantly. The only source of truth were western radio stations: Voice of America, BBC, radio Free Europe - which soviets were jamming!
In the US - the same with gov'mt and gov'mt media. The source of truth - blogs, Drudge, Breitbart and partially FoxTV.
Funny, isn't it? Sad state of affairs!

hard to know who's to blame for the deaths, but we know for sure is wasn't Obama's...and probably not Hillary's. Last weekend the NYT's on a front page article suggested ("some quietly say") that THE AMBASSADOR himself was to blame. Article purported that he eschewed security services in prder to rub elbows with the natives.

Yep, the NYT threw the dead Ambassador under the bus, to protect Barack and Hillary.

First: Whatever the administration calls it be it "workplace violence" or "one off" or whatever, we are at war with radical Islam. The administration will never admit it but we all know it to be true.

Secondly, you don't have to look very hard to understand why the MSM gives Obama a pass on everything. The American liberal establishment is invested in the success of the first Black president of the United States. No matter what he does, no matter his screw-ups and malfeasance they will find a way to excuse it. They do not want to be responsible for the failure of the first Black president so they will never criticize him to the point of opposition. Were the first Black president to be defeated at the polls in November it would be a repudiation of everything that the liberal progressive coalition stands for. So they will accept anything Obama does unquestionably.

Years from now historians will look at this period and try to understand the lemming sense of the MSM and they will see clearly what has been at stake here. We, who are living through these times, cannot see it as well, since we are so close to the events and we seek rational answers. The answers are not more complicated than the left will not permit the first Black president to fail, under any circumstances, no matter what!

They have to be gutless or spineless because while in many ways you are right if the republicans take a hard line they will simply lose.

If you want someone to blame blame yourself or those like you.

It was you or those like you, who let the evil agenda of sophistry that is Post Modernism creep into the public schools.

It was you or those like you who continued to sit in churches that stopped preaching the Gospel.

It was you or those like you that by failing to deal with social issues like racism allowed the evil ones to claim that issue

It was you or those like you that said "This can never happen happen here"

It was you or those like you who put a little personal comfort over the defense of liberty and Truth in places like California.

At this point if the Republicans really stood up the only way they could stop this is with a second civil war. The problem is it would not be North against South but children against parents and grand parents.

The only other option is to do it the way the left did it. slowly, incrementally and and all the while appearing to be innocent

Were there weapons in Libya that were from other countries? If so, where are they and who looked the other way when they were brought in?

This cover-up is HUGE and its timing so important just before the Election. Pity that so many will never hear of it! Willful silence on the part of establishment 'oubbies and the MSM.

Well #58, it looks like the Ambassador was guilty of sin, to wit:
he showed potential personal concern and fear of radical islamofascistrs whilst on duty...on `11 Spt....in derogation of the WH agenda...before the election!!!
It's a shocking business! /s/

One of the sillier effusions of pop political correctness is the attempt to bully the idea of female beauty out of the culture. Ceaseless attacks on Barbie dolls for giving girls unrealistic expectations (though, strange to say, Superman doesn’t do that to boys), or virtuous but likely ineffective campaigns to sell underwear with overweight models, not to mention the endless feminist maundering on the subject — it all seems part of yet another wearisome leftist attempt to change basic reality through thuggery, censorship and noisy protest. Good luck with that. Listen, I don’t complain that Ryan Gosling stole my part

Obama Channeling Pope Francis
To Sell Wealth Redistribution

President Obama is using Pope Francis to foster wealth redistribution ideas in his speeches on the importance of reducing the gap between rich and poor. Now that the President’s message of “Hope and Change” has drastically soured over his last few years in office, Obama is hoping the popular pontiff’s vitality will rub off on him. Michael Peppard, a professor of politics and the papacy at Fordham University, posits, "I think Obama probably wants to tap into some of the energy, and tap into some of it for his own message." Obama quoted Francis in a recent speech on fiscal

It is a tactic as old as argument itself. The person seeking to accomplish something he knows to be dishonest and unjust sets the parameters of the argument, and invites his opponent to debate the predetermined memes. If the debater does not first disown the false premise, and reset the terms, he has effectively lost from the outset. In the case of ObamaCare, the premise is that our healthcare system was irretrievably "broken." Congress had to step in and "fix" healthcare. Of course, this was a ruse for the easy marks. No one but the utter simpletons among us believes

Charles Krauthammer has come to my rescue. You see, I’ve been on the receiving end of some spirited reaction since asserting in last weekend’s column that what we commonly call the Republican establishment — i.e., not all individual Republicans but GOP leadership — “is more sympathetic to Obama’s case for the welfare state than to the Tea Party’s case for limited government and individual liberty.” The statement may have been provocative in the sense of expressing a truth that people on the political Right prefer not to talk about. But it was not controversial because it is indisputably true.

Why the Republican Party?

After the latest dismal performance by congressional Republicans in their battle (a generous description) with the president and his minions over the budget and ObamaCare, it´s time to ask, "Why the Republican Party?" From Jed Babbin, writing for American Spectator: Staggering, without direction, not quite dead and in search of brains, the Republican Party is giving a really good performance as the Zombie Party. According to the media´s current narrative, it has to rid itself of the Tea Party´s influence or die. The saddest of facts is that the media narrative is shared by many establishment Republicans.

President Barack Obama toasted the founding dictator of post-colonial Tanzania on Monday, who collectivized the nation’s low-tech agricultural sector, established a one-party state and left that African nation’s economy in ruins. “[Y]ou might say an American child is my child. We might say a Tanzanian child is my child,” Obama said after quoting the Tanzanian saying “my neighbor’s child is my child.” “In this way, both of our nations will be looking after all of our children and we’ll be living out the vision of President [Julius] Nyerere,” Obama continued.

This is the thirtieth anniversary of the publication of How Democracies Perish, an analysis of the spread of world communism by Jean-François Revel, one of freedom´s most serious French defenders since Tocqueville. At the heart of this work, Revel details "The Tools of Communist Expansion," among which the most relevant for understanding our current situation comes in Chapter 16, "Ideological Warfare and Disinformation." The profound simplicity of Revel´s nuts and bolts account of totalitarianism´s Cold War advance, far from being obsolete

It´s a perennial favorite of scammers to claim we face pending doom that can be averted only if we quickly send them more money or do what they want us to. From The Music Man´s "Ya Got Trouble" to the emails purporting to be from family members who´ve been robbed or imprisoned overseas, the game is a constant money maker for the con men who employ it.

Obama’s Anaconda Plan Squeezes

Let’s take a step back and recognize the breadth and width of the Obama administration’s assault on the US economy. We tend to divide ourselves along economic lines, upper, middle and lower or working class. It’s clear that Barack Obama has a plan for all three levels. If you’re a top earner, in his mind you’ve “made enough money” and should pay more in taxes. That’s his plan for the wealthy: Pay more taxes. This will take some money out of investments and companies and send it to the government. Some jobs will be either lost or aborted.

One of the least remarked upon aspects of President Obama’s inaugural speech was his attempt to co-opt the Founding Fathers’ Declaration of Independence to bolster his liberal-left agenda. Sure, the president quoted one of the most important sentences in world history: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” So far, so good.

In college I read a novel called The Last of the Just by André Schwarz-Bart inspired by a legend/theory from the Talmud — that there are thirty-six righteous souls (the Lamed Vav) in every generation whose existence justifies “the purpose of mankind” to God. From Wikipedia: As a mystical concept, the number 36 is even more intriguing. It is said that at all times there are 36 special people in the world, and that were it not for them, all of them, if even one of them was missing, the world would come to an end.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake
