Immediately after the murder of Chris Stevens, America's Ambassador to Libya, I suggested that the assault on the US consulate in Benghazi on September 11 could have profound consequences for President Barack Obama, particulary if he failed to take appropriate action against the murderers – the most likely candidates being members of al-Qaeda's new terror franchise in Mali.But with the US presidential contest entering its critical final phase, the Obama administration deftly avoided getting into any controversy over the murder of Mr Stevens and three other members of the consulate staff
The WH had help in covering up this tragic terrorist attack. The MSM. They are complicit in this by allowing the lies to continue without questions. Obama and Hillary are both to blame. He even made a speech to the UN still blaming that stupid video. Life obviously means nothing to Obama. The four Americans killed died in vain.
The cover up is continuing. Cant have anything to show our dimwit in chief look incompetent now can we? I remember from the first few hours the report that the ambassador's body was missing for 11 hours. Just think.. this was happening in real time.. they were aware while it was going on. And this is the best they could do was lie about a video tape. They arent even good liars anymore. Susan Rice is a scapegoat. They are hoping to run out the clock on this. and if Fast and Furious is any indication.. they probably will.
How sickening the sight, watching Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton lead a massive governmental cover-up of a deadly terrorist attack upon US soil.
Yes, this is the same Hillary Rodham who first entered the public spotlight when she eagerly participated on camera in the Democrats' histrionical condemnation of a different governmental cover-up, one remembered today as Watergate.
And to date, not one nano-second of 'appropriate action' has been taken. Zippy vowed to get those responsible just like bubba did after the USS Cole bombing. Bubba didn't do squat, resulting in September 11 a year later. Zippy will do nothing, resulting in..........?
The Benghazi cover-up inevitably led to this profoundly anti-American and anti-free speech statement, perhaps the most scandalous thing ever uttered by an American leader (though Obama is not really a leader, nor American): "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam".
http://www.therightscoop.com/pamela-gellers-fantastic-defense-of-her-anti-jihad-ad/ And that is what free speech is now up against. This is pure clarity, and guts.
Some old Clinton moves, left over from White Water:
Lie. Change the story. "It's old news." Stall until after election. Can't comment because it's under "investigation." Stall investigation. Turn tables to accuse the investigators. Now it's someone else's fault.
Debate Question by Mitt Romney for Barack Obama..."When did you learn that there was great danger of an al Qaeda attack on Benghazi? Obama will lie... Followup Question: If you didn't know, why did the British know? They pulled their people out of Behnghazi 2 months before the attacks.
Come on now, Hillary is tough. Standing by her four freshly filled coffins, she bravely proclaimed, "it's time to wipe away the tears and stiffen our spine". /s off. Our spine? Like this administration could use?
It's also interesting how the administration has this belief that US jet fighters can't fly four hundred and fifty miles, to buzz a site in time, which is under a six hour siege. If it was a car/Humvee doing 60mph, that might be true. Oh I get it, the jets are not on the list of green machines and can't be used! Besides a muslim might be harmed.
Also,Susan Rice is not Condi Rice. It would have been appropriate for Secretary of State Condi Rice to make a comment if this had happened during the second term of Bush43; however, Susan Rice, the Ambassador to the UN, is not the person who should have been making a statement. Our Ambassadors to other countries do not work for the Amberican Ambassador to the UN!
If SOS Clinton could not make a statement, then her immediate Deputy would have been the one assigned the duty to comment. It's the old chain of command thing. Since the CIC doesn't understand "chain of command", I doubt if many of the incompetents he surrounds himself with have any idea either. That kind of thing is foreign to them - just like they treat all of America and her traditions. We are a foreign country to them and our CIC.
No. Obama did not know. How could he know? He does not go to intelligence briefings. He is too busy. His job is to run. So he runs. His job is not to preside. He does not want to preside. He just wants the $1.2 billion it takes to support him and his cadre of lick-spittle sycophants.
I'm outraged by the murder of Chris Stevens, but not half as outraged as I am by the murder of the Border Patrol Agent in Naco.
What do you want to bet that the Agent was murdered with one of the guns that Holder let "walk"?
And what do you want to bet that this Marxist administration will cover it up, just as they have the facts of the Chris Stevens murder?
It matters not whether it's murder in a hostile foreign country thousands of miles away, or murder on our own hostile borders, this nation is under siege, and 0b@$tard and his murderous minions have encouraged and fomented every murder.
#12, just wait until, say, the first week-end in November???
This is true, #17. I like that, "Mr. Eye Candy."
#19, and for the entire 7 war years of GW's term there were anti-war demonstrations, and a nightly tally of our dear soldiers' deaths, with anchors' expressing feigned sadness.
It was feigned, because as soon as BO was inaugurated, no more protests, no more nightly tally. And the poor, pathetic Cindy Sheehan, her usefulness exhausted, has been cast aside like a rag.
And we know, #23, that we have many military assets in the region.
There is no explanation for what this regime is doing other than it's propounding a cover-up. With the complicity of the media, we find ourselves in a dangerous predicament, right on the edge of the totalitarian abyss.
Mitt has so many mal-feasance facts to recite that he does not have to answer a single word of the Imposter. Do a Jack Webb a Bill O'Reilly interrupt act (hate O'Reily's socialist ways), ignore what Ob says keep driving at Solyndra, Fast and Furious, dozens of appointed Communist czars preventing armed forces from voting, communnizing the doctor patient relationship bailout after bailout topped off by the current one that is ENDLESS, giving away phones, buying the Mexican vote, keeping the border open, suing the state that fights the alien invasion, tripling the debt luxurious vacations, no budget yet, non photogrpahed golf, and show a photo of his mansion and ask where did he get all his money? on and on, just continuous questions ignoring the communist moderator (there should be NO moderator in a debate, only a timing monitor). Mitt IS smart enough to be rapid fire and MUST STAY on the offensive, brutally on the offensive, not a moment on the defensive. Ignore their few pitiable questions and stick to the facts only in aggressive style. Leave no doubt !!
The consequences of sending a gay ambassador to a Muslim country without proper security were apparently lost on an organization whose corporate culture views such as normal. When the inevitable result of such a provocation bore its fruits (no pun intended), it has become clear other forces must be put forth as the cause to save the savior. No fault must ever...ever...be admitted beyond a failure to communicate effectively with voters sometimes.
these are the same groups that Thomas Jefferson wentafter in c.1803. At thattime the "Musselman" asthe muslims were calledthen were boarding and snatching US ships and enslaving the sailors. But the US forces, maybe Marines fought them off and let them know the US was not going to put up with it. I think the explanation for cover-up is even worse. Taht the Junta wanted anothe distraction. Anotherwayto control the newsday,and news cycle so no one would discuss obama's recorde.This kabuki has been going on each week since before summer. This one has been worth 20 days! The Obama regime knows the GOP won't do anything and the press will stall and cover for them, so what is the worry. If the regime loses, every one moves on and if it wins Partay time break out the vodka! Soviet USA has arrived.
If Obama told the truth,he would have to admit that his muslim friends, to which he supplied weapons, committed an act of war and murdered a U.S. diplomat. We should be landing specops people all over Libya right now, aiming guns and missiles from the sea and getting the fighter-bombers ready. A real leader would be doing that.
The ambassador suffered from smoke inhalation but was very much alive when the murderous scum dragged him from the building. The WH would love to sweep this one under the rug and give Clinton, Rice and Obama a do-over. Let's hope Romney starts the hue and cry tonight. We are now dealing with incompetence at the level that people are being killed and we knew it would come to that.
If you connect all the dots, only one conclusion is possible. The dots:
•When White House press secretary Jay Carney first announced the attack he immediately added that it was a spontaneous reaction to a YouTube video, AND NOT AN ATTACK AGAINST AMERICA OR AMERICAN POLICIES! The only reason for that comment was to try (with absolutely NO attempt at subtlety) to deflect attention away from the truth.
•They continued to push that story line until it became completely untenable.
•They sent Dr. Rice out, in spite of the fact that she has nothing to do with our foreign Ambassadors, because SOS Hillary (who still fosters presidential ambitions, despite the denials. Don’t forget the litany of denials leading up to her 2008 run.), knew the truth and refused to let herself or any of her minions get caught in such an obvious lie.
•The FBI is still waiting for permission to enter Benghazi and investigate.
I think #27 has the right idea. The Obama administration facilitated the attack (by ignoring warnings and sending Stevens to Benghazi on 9/11 with inadequate security), to create an arguable scenario for a “Wag-the-Dog” attack (aka: an “October Surprise”).
''could have profound consequences for President Barack Obama, particulary if he failed to take appropriate action against the murderers '' - article. The 0bama regime sees this as a PR problem which is why they will ''October surprise'' someone in Libya with some cruise missiles and other US weapons whether they actually find the terrorists or not.
Lets face it, Obama has absolutely no fear of straight reporting by the MSM so he can put any lie forward with impunity. During the Obama/McCain election the MSM completely abdicated their traditional role in vetting Obama's radical friends and background. Now, because of the MSM, Romney is playing against a "stacked deck". The MSM will either completely ignore Obama's missteps or will spin them in Obama's favor. Our Founders intended for the press to play a key role in seeing that the truth got out. This was important for America. Now the MSM is completely corrupt and our nation is in big trouble.
How come nobody has brought this up...and I believe it to be true! Horse before the cart Odips_it orders the Seals to take out Bin Laden then Brags it was him and the Nvy Seals retaliate against him with books and other vocal condemnations. His As_holiness dont like this as he is arrogant, and how dare anybody question his stupid ass. He is aware there are two Navy Seals station with the ambassador and figures its payback time and repeatdely turnsdown requests for add'l security
#42, I'm glad I'm not the only person who thinks that Stevens would be considered "collateral damage" if Obama could get some payback at some SEALs to shut up the lot of them for the rest of the election. Me thinks he doesn't understand with whom he is dealing. We'll be lucky if he doesn't send SEAL Team 6 into an ambush or give them bad intel on their next mission, getting a few more of them killed.
Big Brother may be watching you. But Glenn Greenwald is watching Big Brother. That´s not a bad take on how the 46-year-old constitutional-law attorney turned crusading journalist turned thorn in the side of the NSA might describe his mission. At least in part. Greenwald is doing more than just watching. By combing through the tens of thousands of classified NSA documents leaked to him by Edward Snowden -- and publishing in newspapers around the globe report after report on the secretive agency´s mass-spying activities -- he´s got the whole world watching too.
he Maryland official who directly oversaw the rollout of Maryland’s health insurance exchange resigned Friday amid continuing technical problems that have hampered the state’s online enrollment efforts.After an emergency session Friday night, the board of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange accepted the resignation of Rebecca Pearce, its executive director, and thanked her in a statement for working “tirelessly and with tremendous dedication” for more than two years.
Earlier this week, Onyango "Omar" Obama, uncle to Barack, said in a deportation hearing that he stayed with his nephew in Cambridge in the 1980s. The White House had to that point said that the president had never actually met Omar, who was arrested for drunk driving in 2011. Now, two years after the arrest brought denials of any sort of relationship from the White House, the president is admitting that, yes, he briefly lived with his uncle Omar before heading to Harvard Law School in the ´80s. "The president first met Omar Obama when he moved to Cambridge for law
Technicians in the Washington area raced up to a month-end deadline set by the Obama administration to make the troubled federal insurance website work for a majority of users, but officials acknowledged they still faced a raft of problems that could take weeks or more to fix. By Saturday evening, technicians completed a major hardware upgrade, adding computing, storage and database capacity to their data center, said one person familiar with the situation. "There was a big install and it worked," the person said. Contractors believe the upgrades will improve the system´s performance and let it handle more visitors, but the person
The once-sleepy town of Williston sits on the confluence of the Yellowstone and Missouri rivers in the US state of North Dakota. Five years ago, Williston had a population of 12,000 and was slowly dying on its feet – an agricultural hub marked out from the plains only by the grain silos that stand silhouetted against the big North Dakota skies. The fall-out from a brief oil boom in the mid-1980s had left the town with sky-high debts and a main street filled with empty shops and peeling facades. Young people looking for jobs skipped town at the first opportunity. Today, Williston is
The CIA used a secret base at Guantanamo Bay nicknamed ´Penny Lane´ to turn some of al-Qaeda´s most dangerous terrorists into double agents, US officials have admitted.Inmates languishing under Guantanamo Bay´s harsh regime were offered cash rewards, "hotel" style rooms and even pornography if they agreed to help the CIA track down and kill fellow al-Qaeda operatives. Instead of Guantanamo´s spartan cells, they would be transferred to cottages equipped with private kitchens, showers and televisions, as well as their own patio. A handful then signed agreements to work for the CIA, under which they were released and told to hook up once
DALLAS - A winter storm system blamed for at least 10 fatal accidents in the West and Texas threatens to dampen the Thanksgiving holiday for millions of Americans traveling this week.Nearly 300 American Airlines and American Eagle flights were canceled in and out of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport on Monday due to the weather, spokeswoman Laura Masvidal said, mirroring disruptions at the air hub a day earlier. Some of the country´s busiest airports - New York, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Boston and Charlotte, N.C. - could see big delays. Icy roads led to hundreds of accidents and at least 10 deaths, half
As he climbed the political heap, a young Barack Obama roused audiences with promises to unite the nation. He was a Senate candidate in 2004 when he told the Democratic national convention, “There is not a liberal America and a conservative America. There is a United States of America.” In 2007, he declared early in his presidential run that “I don’t want to pit red America against blue America. I want to be the president of the United States of America.” A year later, after he won the Iowa caucus, he promised, “We are not a collection of red states and blue
Remember President Barack Obama´s mother? Though the airwaves currently echo with his vow "If you like your plan . . ." I keep remembering Obama´s account of his mother being denied coverage by her insurance company as she lay dying of cancer.The moving and infuriating story was a staple on the 2008 campaign trail. His mother had insurance, he explained, but when she came down with cancer, her insurance company claimed her disease was a "pre-existing condition" and refused to pay for her treatment. In a debate with Sen. John McCain, Obama said: "For my mother to die of cancer
Lawmakers began reacting late Saturday to news of an historic agreement that freezes key parts of Iran´s nuclear program. Here are excerpts from statements responding to the deal: House Majority Leader Eric I. Cantor (R-Va.):"While I await specific details of the interim agreement, I remain concerned that this deal does not adequately halt Iran´s enrichment capabilities. Numerous U.N. Security Council resolutions have called for the full suspension of Iran´s nuclear activities, so it is troubling that this agreement still permits the Iranians to continue enriching. It is critical that distrust but verify be the guiding principle with which we approach
WASHINGTON — On a sultry day in late August, a dozen staff members of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services gathered at the agency’s Baltimore headquarters with managers from the major contractors building HealthCare.gov to review numerous problems with President’s Obama’s online health insurance initiative. The mood was grim. Henry Chao, a 19-year Medicare agency veteran with no formal background in software engineering, was eventually left with day-to-day management of the president’s signature initiative.
At 9 a.m. on Aug. 22, a team of federal health officials sat down in a Baltimore conference room with at least a dozen employees of CGI Federal, the company with the main contract to build the online federal health insurance marketplace. For six weeks, the federal officials overseeing the project had become increasingly worried that CGI was missing deadlines, understaffing the work and overstating its progress. As the meeting began, one of the officials reminded the CGI employees that HealthCare.gov was “the president’s number one priority,” assured them that the discussion would be a “blame-free zone,” and then bored in.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
The world premiere of the “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” is set for tonight. Princeton University’s director of its jazz-studies program composed the work in honor of the Florida teen. Anthony D. J. Branker told the Star-Ledger that the piece is intended to “be a form of healing” after Martin’s death and the controversial court case that followed it. The ballad, which will be performed by the university’s official orchestra and jazz ensemble, is intended to be a tribute to victims of racial violence, Branker explained. He hopes that the performance will be “one that speaks to
WASHINGTON – A fourth straight month of solid hiring cut the U.S. unemployment rate to a five-year low of 7 percent in November, an encouraging sign for the economy. The Labor Department says employers added 203,000 jobs, nearly matching October´s revised gain of 200,000. The job gains helped lower the unemployment rate from 7.3 percent in October. The strengthening job market is likely to fuel speculation that the Federal Reserve may start to scale back its bond purchases when it meets later this month. The economy has now generated an average of 204,000 jobs from August through November. That´s up
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has high praise for potential 2016 contenders Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “I think Joe Biden will go down in history as one of the best vice presidents ever, and he has been with me, at my side, in every tough decision that I’ve made,” Obama told MSNBC in an interview Thursday held at American University. “Hillary, I think, will go down in history as one of the finest secretaries of state we’ve ever had, and helped to transition us away from a deep hole that we were in,
WASHINGTON — Without Nelson Mandela, there might never have been a President Obama. That is the strong impression conveyed from Mr. Obama, whose political and personal bonds to Mr. Mandela, the former South African president, transcended their single face-to-face meeting, which took place at a hotel here in 2005. It was the fight for racial justice in South Africa by Mr. Mandela that first inspired a young Barack Obama to public service, the American president recalled on Thursday evening after hearing that Mr. Mandela, the 95-year-old world icon, had died. Mr. Obama delivered his first public speech, in 1979, at
