Like I promised you, the current 72 hour event cycle appears to be ramping up the Benghazi Massacre scandal that has now likely shot up to concern #1 for the Obama White House before the second debate. Romney campaign feeling good about things. Real good. Not sure if you got this timeline published by The Hill. I am sending you some of that outline with my own comments. Feel free to publish or just keep it for yourself. This is to let you get an idea how we/they are forming this
Comments: This unqualified, hateful wench enjoys being called the defacto president. I bet she does. Her arrogance and audacity is shocking. The Jarrett meltdown is described after the timeline is given for Benghazi attack. Can you imagine how impossible it would be to try and control that woman??
Why does Val Jar have full time Secret Service protection yet our Libyan ambassador is left with sub contracted Libyans? I realize that Jarrrett is BO's brain, but a 6 to 8 person SS contingent is an outrage. Especially when BO tries to blame the GOP for cutting security budgets.
Our would be dictator for life has to be voted out before he suspends future elections.
FTA: So she is holed up in a meeting with somebody from the White House Counsel in her office and comes out p-ssed.* Sends staff to go get Plouffe. His office is downstairs right next to the Oval. Where Axelrod used to be. Plouffe is down there a lot more than Obama is. The poor b-stard* is trying to coordinate the plans from Chicago, and Jarrett’s interference from upstairs.
A campaign office and staff in the White House. Remember when that was illegal? Oh - wait... it still is.
I made the mistake of clicking on the Lame Cherry Link and reading a good bit of it. Now I have to go wash out my eyes, this is all too much at once. I suggest reading Ulsterman and taking a break before starting on Lame Cherry. Gosh! And I thought DEBKA was, um, different, until someone (sorry I forget who) said he thought DEBKA was a little old lady in a trailer in Iowa, then I couldn't read it without chuckling.
If Vaerie was Obama's brain, and apparently wanted to run the presidency, why did barack try to get her his seat in the senate? Was he trying to be rid of her?? Is he afraid to slap her down?? He did, after all, try to get the olympics for Chicago, so that slumlord valerie could make some serious money.
Whew had to go wash my eyes but sure makes some good reading. there will be a blood bath before this is all over tks FOX and all the loyal Luczanne boys and girls to keep it going cant wait for old Bill C to get into the fray...
Read the comments. One person mentioned that they had connections in the WH and claimed that the attack was supposed to result with the ambassador being kidnapped by the Muslim Brotherhood. Then Obama was going to have him rescued right before the election to be the hero winning a second term. The plan went array and now they are in deep doo doo. This would not surprise me one bit.
I don't like Bill Clinton on any level, but I do have to admit he is a Big Gun in Democrat politics.
According to many accounts, Bill Clinton hates Obama and is helping him only to help Hillary successfully get the nomination in 2016.
Up to now, Bill Clinton has been shooting verbal barbs at Romney/Ryan, but that may change with the White House throwing Hillary under the bus.
Bill Clinton is a free agent in this, not dependent upon Obama.
It is possible that he may now decide to swing around and shoot verbal barbs in the other direction. If that happens, the election of Romney is assured and we'll all have a very entertaining time watching the Democrat party self-destruct...
Colonel Wood was pretty emphatic during the hearings that - once the Red Cross was forced to pull out after an RPG attack - the consulate was the last American flag left flying in Benghazi and that the terrorists were making no small mention of the fact that it was next on the list. This story is orders of magnitude bigger than a late-night burglary.
It really seems to me Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, etc., etc. really lack the heavy coating of fake bravado and confidence they are usually wearing when it comes to taking about the Benghazi fiasco. I see a lot of doubt in their eyes, looking down, searching for the right word, etc. They are professional liars but they all know SOMEBODY has to take the fall. It’s as if they are thinking, “Whom do I trust?” “Should I make my move now and avoid future entanglement in this mess?” “To hell with the election, I don’t want to go to prison.”
"You asked if it was possibly something that had been staged by Obama operatives and it went bad? I’ve run that scenario around and around and there are some missing peices that I can’t quite fit together. But I’m not saying it isn’t possible. With these people, not possible no longer applies."
I believe there appear to be pieces missing because there were two separate events: 1) planned demonstrations over the video, and 2) an alquaeda attack. I propose that the Obama folks knew about the upcoming demonstrations and had a whole narrative ready to roll out, like the phony "war on women" nonsense. That would account for their ignoring the chatter leading up to 9/11. They thought it was about their upcoming political theater. Unknown to them, AQ had its own plan for 9/11 in Benghazi. A separate and unrelated event. The Obama folks first think it is their event gone bad, accounting for their initial horror. As they learn otherwise, they just fold Benghazi in and use it. Monsters.
#9 the language may be colorful but the wall street insider, the white house insider, and Lame Cherry have alot of inside info. Go back and read their older posts, they clearly know things, most of it's scary and pure evil. You may never get a good nights sleep again. Glenn Beck has been talking about some of these things. The WSI and WHI both voted for the anointed one and regret it, they are trying to save the country now. I'm fairly sure I know who the WHI is and that's just the way he speaks. Their identities are never discussed because they don't want to be Breitbarted.
22 - over at UM we've been trying to figure that out for 2 years. Give up. Just pay attention to what they ''share''. It all seems to come true, eventually.
I read thru to LC's blog. Apart from the ''stream of consciousness'' method of writing/talking (which you definitely have to get used to) there's a LOT of interesting stuff in there. If we're going to bat conjectures around, there are a number of them to be batted. And oddly enough, I don't necessarily find myself disbelieving much of it...
#10, maybe that's why Obama, knowing our Ambassador was missing, just went to bed. He was supposed to be missing. When he got up the next morning and found out Chris Stevens had been murdered, his grand plan went up in smoke. Panic ensued. What now? Enter the video excuse and Susan Rice shows up everywhere to push it.
Mama Val's little boy barry isn't turning out to be the golden child that she needed to further her own career. Not only will she be jobless after January but her home country of Iran is going to pay the price for four years of insolence, murder, and aiding and abetting the enemy. And that is just HERE IN WASHINGTON.
I have been reading Lame Cherry off and on for the last three or so years and wonder where he/she gets their information. They have very inside contacts somewhere. Scares the bejeesus out of you sometimes what they write.
Kevin DuJan at Hillbuzz.org postulated the very same scenario very early on. He must know someone also.
Interesting read. The gist of the article is that "someone" in the Øbama regime worked out an "October Surprise" scenario that was supposed to help Øbama get re-elected by having our U.S. ambassador in Libya get kidnapped and held for ransom. Øbama would rescue him and be a hero to the country. That is the reason our embassy in Libya purposely had so little security. The ambassador was supposed to be kidnapped. But something went wrong and the ambassador was killed instead. That is why Øbama and his whole rotten regime latched onto "The video made them do it" cover story for 3-4 weeks. All I can say is the Øbama regime is disgusting and rotten to the core and needs to be voted OUT in November for the good of the country.
I agree with #34's scenario. What went wrong was the 2 former Seals (Doherty & Woods), in Benghazi on an unrelated mission, went to the sound of the guns in an effort to assist the Ambassador. Their intervention blew up the kidnapping plan and the barbarians ended up killing Stevens.
Law-enforcement officials in the U.S. are expanding the use of tools routinely used by computer hackers to gather information on suspects, bringing the criminal wiretap into the cyber age. Federal agencies have largely kept quiet about these capabilities, but court documents and interviews with people involved in the programs provide new details about the hacking tools, including spyware delivered to computers and phones through email or Web links—techniques more commonly associated with attacks by criminals. People familiar with the Federal Bureau of Investigation´s programs say that the use of hacking
A handwritten note about Obamacare from President Obama was auctioned off for nearly $10,000. The auction house Nate D. Sanders put the final bid at $9,799. Some 10 people bid on the note in the July auction, and it was one of the highest bids for an Obama letter in his presidency. Here is how Sanders promoted the letter: "Excellent-content autograph letter signed by Barack Obama on his health care legislation. On official White House stationery, undated but likely early 2010, Obama writes in full, ´´Beth - I received your letter, and want you to hear back from me.
Like a battered spouse in an abusive relationship, the Pentagon paid billions of dollars to companies even though the same companies were known to have defrauded the government in the past, according to a report compiled by Department of Defense officials. But the Pentagon´s ability to research sanctions levied by DOD offices against contractors, and to monitor sanctioned contractors as they merge, acquire new names and become new companies, is as piecemeal and filled with guesswork as that of anyone trying to do such research from the outside, with limited integrated systems and unique identifiers, the report said.
Hillary Clinton, get ready for your close-up. The former secretary of state and potential 2016 presidential candidate is the subject of a series of Hollywood projects set for release in the near future. On the line-up: An NBC miniseries called “Hillary,” a CNN documentary based on Clinton’s life and a movie, dubbed “Rodham,” dramatizing her early years as a Washington lawyer. Plus, there’s an HBO documentary about former President Bill Clinton in the works. Martin Scorsese (of “Taxi Driver” fame) is directing that film, which will focus on his presidency and post-White House life. What’s causing the flood?
Republican New Jersey governor Chris Christie is appealing to “ChristieCrats” in a new re-election ad touting his bipartisan credentials. The Youtube ad, which the Christie campaign is quick to note does not appear on television or radio, highlights the outburst of Democratic love for the governor following his high-profile embrace of President Obama after Hurricane Sandy late last October — a move that angered many national Republicans who felt the photo op damaged Mitt Romney’s chances in the 2012 presidential election. “There are so many Democrats endorsing Chris Christie’s re-election that they actually have a name, ‘ChristieCrats,’”
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman and California Republican Rep. Darrell Issa has subpoenaed the U.S. Treasury Department for documents related to the IRS targeting scandal. The Treasury Department, headed by Obama appointee and former Obama White House Chief of Staff Jack Lew, said that it is cooperating with the subpoena. Issa also accused acting IRS commissioner Danny Werfel of obstructing his investigation Friday in the final IRS hearing before congressional summer recess.
On his show Friday, Glenn Beck became convinced that many members of the Obama administration act like racists, after breaking down the “anatomy of a racist”: they see groups over individuals, they lack objectivity, and they seek power through conflict. Beck concluded that the president and his allies are trying to sow the seeds of a race war. Beck has previously leveled these same charges at Obama, calling him a racist who is uncomfortable with white people four years ago, but in an exchange flagged by Right Wing Watch, this time he upped the
Rent free in their empty heads. There would be no home field advantage in Alaska for Sarah Palin if the former governor made a run for the White House in 2016, according to a new poll released Friday. Hillary Clinton, the front runner for the Democrats in 2016, would beat Palin 49-40 in a hypothetical match-up, according to a survey from Democratic firm Public Policy Polling. Palin is the only potential GOP candidate Clinton topped in poll. Despite it being her home state, only 18 percent of Alaskans think Palin should make a bid for the
CHARLOTTE —What does the term “summer camp” mean to you? Swimming? Hiking? Arts & Crafts? Archery? Hot dogs? Ghost stories by a campfire? For children in the Middle East “summer camp” could mean rocket launchers, hand grenades, suicide vests and learning how to manage an improvised explosive device (IED). From the beginning of June until the first week in July, Hamas organizes month-long summer camps for nearly 100,000 students. More than 60% of them are young men between the ages of 10 and 22. According to the Chairman of the Hamas Central Summer Camp Committee, Moussa al-Sammak,
OCALA, Fla. — Angela Corey, the special prosecutor in George Zimmerman’s murder trial, is being sued by a former employee she fired after he testified against her handling of evidence in the case. Corey fired Ben Kruidbos, her office’s information technology director, after his June 6 pre-trial testimony in which he revealed information concealed from Zimmerman’s defense team by the prosecution. His termination letter included allegations of serious workplace misconduct such as violating public records laws. However, the allegations conflict with the kudos Corey’s office gave Kruidbos on May 16, when he received a pay raise for “meritorious service.”
WASHINGTON — The 2016 presidential marathon began this week when Hillary Clinton had a very visible, heavily promoted White House lunch with President Obama, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie threw a political punch at one of his potential rivals for the Republican nomination. If there were any doubts that the former secretary of state plans to run for president, they were put to rest when she and Obama had lunch on the patio outside the Oval Office on Monday. The White House photographer, Chuck Kennedy, took pictures of the tete-a-tete that were
By granting a yearly and renewable asylum to Edward Snowden, Vladimir Putin has challenged President Barack Obama. He has made it clear that the famous “reset” button with Russia, signed onto and endorsed by Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of State, meant only that the United States would allow Russia to get away with what it wanted in international affairs as long as Putin’s authority was not challenged. Russia would continue to aid its Syrian ally, no matter what “red lines” were crossed, and all the United States would do is urge Russia to act differently.
White House insiders say President Barack Obama is in “a funk” about what he sees as increasing stagnation and failures surrounding his second term and some worry that the President is becoming more distant and distracted. “He’s not the same Obama that came to the Oval Office after the 2008 elections,” a senior White House aided confided to friends in an email recently. “I’m worried.” Chicago Mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel tells friends that the Presidency has changed his longtime friend Obama and many of those changes are “not good.”
Citing a potential al Qaeda attack, the State Department on Friday issued a worldwide travel alert and warned American citizens that the terrorist group may be plotting a strike in the Middle East, North Africa or elsewhere. “Current information suggests that al Qaeda and affiliated organizations continue to plan terrorist attacks both in the region and beyond, and that they may focus efforts to conduct attacks in the period between now and the end of August,” reads a portion of the alert, which lasts until the end of the month.
Executive Director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns Mark Glaze gave some ambiguous and potentially dangerous self defense advice Friday on “Hardball.” Glaze, speaking in opposition to “Stand Your Ground” laws, said in a circumstance where someone “comes at you” with an axe handle one should attempt to either “talk,” “fight with your fists,” “run away,” or “deescalate the situation,” but not shoot the attacker: MARK GLAZE: Very often somebody will come at you. They might want to have a fistfight. They might come at you with an ax handle. CHRIS MATTHEWS: Would you consider the guy with the ax handle armed or not?
[Video] Rapper Jay Z appearing on HBO´s "Real Time" with Bill Maher says that the black community wants upward economic mobility rather than a stronger police presence. In a conversation with former Congressman Barney Frank about police tactics such as stop-and-frisk, Jay Z suggests the stagnant economy and wealth inequality could cause widespread social unrest: "The real problem is there´s no middle class, right? So the gap between the have and have-nots is getting wider and wider... It´s gonna be a problem that no amount of police can solve, because once you have that sort of oppression
About 400 area retail and fast-food workers, together with colleagues nationally, participated in a strike Thursday to demand raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour. “If not $15, then something. I mean give us something. I work 36 hours a week and barely make enough to pay my rent, gas bill, light bill. It gets to the point where I barely have enough for lunch sometimes,” said Angel Richardson, 21, who works at McDonald’s. “I’m five months pregnant, what am I going to do in four months? I hope something changes.” The minimum wage is $7.25 nationally and $8.25
In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”
You don´t have to be gay or even Russian to feel the wrath of the Russian government´s homophobia. You could go to jail if you are "pro-gay," whatever that means. And that´s under just one of a growing number of hate-infused bills becoming law at a time when, as it happens, Russia is preparing to host the world in the next Winter Olympics. The perverse anti-gay legislation is inflaming an atmosphere of persistent intimidation and at times deadly violence against Russian gays and lesbians. The question now is: What should the rest of the world do?
Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) suggested on Friday morning that the tea party movement is comprised of the same types of people who fought against the civil rights movement during the 1960s. Speaking with the Daily Beast, Rangel said of the movement: “It is the same group we faced in the South with those white crackers and the dogs and the police. They didn’t care about how they looked. He added that the tea party movement can be defeated similar to how the civil rights movement eradicated Jim Crow mentality: “It was just fierce indifference to human life that caused
The nation´s most active death penalty state is running out of its execution drug. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Thursday that its remaining supply of phenobarbital expires in September and that no alternatives have been found. It wasn´t immediately clear whether two executions scheduled for next month would be delayed. The state has already executed 11 death-row inmates this year, and at least seven more have execution dates in coming months. "We will be unable to use our current supply of phenobarbital after it expires," agency spokesman Jason Clark said. "We are exploring all options at this time."
A dart game that used President Obama´s face for target practice at a county fair in New York state is being dismantled today. Fairgoer Abigail Czapsky submitted photos of the booth at Otsego County Fair to HuffPost yesterday, which show President Obama´s face lined up alongside yellow stars in a dart game. According to Czapsky´s Facebook page, following yesterday´s HuffPost story the booth has now taken down the offensive targets. Czapsky says the Otsego County Fair Board called her to apologize about the booth and explain that it was being taken down. Not one individual on the fair board
Some of the earliest clues scientists had that Earth´s climate has changed over time were mismatches between the fossil record and a current ecosystem. How could this palm tree have grown in Wyoming? Why have fossils of the tropical breadfruit tree been found as far north as Greenland? These cold places must have once been warm and wet. The world is not as it has always been. And somehow, despite the tumult, species adapted, moving thousands of miles to habitats where they could survive. Won´t species today just do the same as temperatures rise in the years ahead?
After purchasing the Boston Globe in 1993 for a then-record $1.1 billion, the financially troubled New York Times just announced it sold the 141 year-old paper to Boston Red Sox owner John Henry for a mere $70 million. That´s a straight 93% loss. Figuring in two decades of inflation would only make it worse -- as does the fact the Times retains the Globe´s pension liabilities, estimated at over $100 million. (snip) What might have sweetened the lower offer for the Times is that Henry offered a straight cash deal, which is expected to close sometime in September or October.
