Benghazi and Obama:
the media is trying to shore
up this desperate administration

Telegraph [UK], by James Delingpole

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 10/24/2012 10:35:50 PM

Here's one thing we can be sure of about the Benghazi affair: almost everything we've been told since by the mainstream media is a lie, invariably one designed to shore up the creaky and desperate Obama administration. Consider how quickly the story was spun by Obama's amen corner in the liberal MSM. It should, according to any objective news sense, have been a shocking tale of how a woefully unprotected ambassador was murdered in cold blood by Al Qaeda affiliates. Instead, it almost immediately became--of all things--an excuse to demonstrate why Mitt Romney was unfit to be president. Here, for

Beautifully encapsulated--Jimmy D for Secretary of State!

Obama has been lying about Benghazi in one form or another for 5 weeks.
The truth follows more slowly and it is ugly.

Those 4 murdered citizens in Benghazi were simply left to die by Barry & his cohorts. Campaigning took precedence.

IMO, Gloria Allred's role in the Obama campaign is to run interference by using the Obama campaign's tried-and-true method of unsealing sealed court documents to distract America from Fast&Furious, which was overshadowed by Benghazi, which the media refuses to talk about...in a week, both stories could very well be off the table.

This administration, the MSM, in fact, everyone on the left is just so incompetent, so twisted and just plain heartless.

Looking at the photo of Chris Anderson is really heartbreaking. They call themselves "progressives." Can someone explain that exactly? There must be another meaning of the word I don't know -nothing, nothing could possibly expain this.

I've learned that a Democrat President (starting with Bill Clinton) can violate any law, commit treason, trash the Constitution and know that the Democrats in Congress and the msm will always support them. Unlike what happened to Richard Nixon. The current occupant in our White House is more sinister, cold, thuggish, pro Islam and anti American than I ever thought until now. God help us if he gets reelected.

After this election let's put all our TV's in our closets and get all our news and entertainment from our computers.

The MSM must suffer for their lies, half truths and out and out censorship. Let's drive TV viewership down to almost nothing, and stop TV sales.

I think the days of multi-million dollar earning news readers has past, and should end sooner rather than later.

No longer mentioned in any of the reporting is that the 'video' lie chanted endlessly by zippy, shrillary and their lap dogs caused riots all over the middle and far east and in Europe ( even on the tiny island of Mauritius in the middle of the Indian Ocean ). Those riots endangered many more Americans and destroyed several of our embassies and consulates. Just think of all the classified information left for the rioters in those buildings. National security issue? You bet, and maybe that was part of the plan. Lets not forget to hold zippy and shrillary accountable for that as well.

Why didn't the Nobama administration order a rescue? Answer is that it would appear to be imperialistic and Nobama is fully against this. Another question is why did we even have an embassy there when it was known that the Libyans could not defend our embassy's presence. Brits knew this, they pulled out.

They watched this live feed . The 2 security men were not killed until 7 hours into the attack. Nothing was done. They allowed them to die while sending in no help. Then they blamed a film while obama hopped on a plane to Vegas and sent the un ambassador out to lie for them. After all of this it's not a story for (and please don't call them mainstream) any of the obama team media channels. These 'news' channels and personnel (I refuse to name them journalists) have destroyed any credibility they may have had. Anyone who is not a complete left wing ideologue no longer watches them. Just look at the viewership numbers for Fox.

The Socialist Party candidate for President
of the US, Norman Thomas, said this in a
1944 speech:

The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism.
But, under the name of "liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of
of the socialist program, until one day America will be a
socialist nation, without knowing how it happened."
He went on to say "I no longer need to run as a Presidential
Candidate for the Socialist Party.
The Democrat Part has adopted our platform."

This is as true today as it was in 1944. And this is what scares me to no end. Just how many sheeple out there will be on of those who will never realize that we are slowly but surely sliding into socialism. It's time for us, the informed, to get the word out and start changing that which is happening. Lets start by doing all we can to elect Romney and get Obozo out of our government. For the rest of HIS life.

I am sorry if you got tired of my rants about necessity of conservative mainstream media, but I know what I am talking about. Propaganda is not just a word, it is almost the most powerful tool in fascist/commies toolbox! And it has to be countered with conservative truthaganda and information.
I am convinced that obozo and other commies wouldn't stand a chance even in 2008 if we, conservatives, had:
1. Conservative media
2. Conservative, commonsensical candidate.
Which would've happened if we had conservative media!

Dear MSM: Why can an amateur be blamed for making a video inflaming Islam to murder, but a Hollywood production bragging about the president of the US killing one of their heroes is no problem?

My guess: it has nothing to do with Islam, or risk to American, whether civilians or those serving their country. It is dependent one factor alone: if it helps Obama it is okay, but if it hurts him it is not.

The international police force said at no point were the passports checked against its lost and stolen database. Had these checks been carried out it would have come to light that two passengers were travelling on two passports stolen in separate incidents over the last two years.

For a man who is new to the job, the Ukrainian prime minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, is pretty impressive. Indeed, his performance would be stunning by the standards of any long-serving national leader. Responding to the refusal of Russia’s foreign minister to enter into any direct talks with his country, and the less than thrilling response to this obduracy by the western powers, Mr Yatsenyuk’s spontaneous exasperation was pitch perfect: “What’s happened?

As Europe’s leading power, a global economic titan, and a nation that has sought since 1945 to set an example of peace and democracy, Germany ought to be at the forefront of demands for sanctions to be imposed on Russia after its outrageous behaviour in Ukraine. But it has signally failed to discharge its moral duty towards Europe. The main reason is self-interest because the German economy is massively dependent on Russia. Not only is Russia one of the main markets for its exports, but its industry and homes rely so heavily on the country’s gas and oil. What’s more,

However, there were reports Vietnamese air force planes have spotted a 14-mile long oil slick 120 miles off the coast of Cape Ca Mau - the most southerly point of Vietnam´s mainland.

A major search has been launched for a Malaysian Airlines jet with 239 people on board after it lost contact flying from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Airline officials admitted they were gravely concerned for the safety of the aircraft. It was not immediately known which nationalities were on board the jet which was flying on a popular route. An unconfirmed report on a flight tracking website said the aircraft had plunged 200m and changed course shortly before all contact was lost.

´Russian television news is reporting…” Nowadays, when I hear those words pronounced on the BBC or ITN, I can’t help but wince. Over the past 10 days, Russian television news has reported, among other things, that 675,000 Ukrainian refugees have flooded over the Russian border; that extremists and neo-Nazi militants have illegally taken over the Ukrainian government in Kiev; and that Crimean “self-defence forces” or “pro-Russian forces” have spontaneously gathered in front of the Crimean parliament in order to defend it from those same Nazis. Each of these statements is a lie: there are no refugees flooding into Russia.

Via Matt Lewis, here’s Maverick once again demonstrating that “cordial relationship” in politico-speak means “two people who can’t publicly admit to hating each other but obviously do.” And it’s a cheap shot. Cruz’s point yesterday at CPAC was that Dole, McCain, and Romney lost because they weren’t conservative enough. That’s not because they’re gutless — he said specifically that they were “good” and “decent” men — but because they’re not committed, full-throated ideologues, even less so when they’re fighting for purple states in a national election. We can debate whether that’s true but there’s nothing offensive in raising the subject.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) apologized Thursday to his committee´s ranking Democratic member for cutting off his microphone at the end of a hearing Wednesday, according to a local report. Issa told the San Diego Union-Tribune that he personally apologized to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.). His apology comes after the House earlier Thursday voted down a motion to censure the chairman for his treatment of Cummings. Issa ended a hearing on the IRS scandal Wednesday despite Cummings´s attempt to make a statement and ask a question. When Cummings persisted in his effort to speak, Issa personally cut

What’s been said of confession — that it is good for one’s soul but bad for one’s reputation — can also be true of testifying to Congress, so Lois Lerner has chosen to stay silent. Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Is Mitt Romney getting the band back together? The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has invited his debate prep advisers and senior campaign aides to his mountaintop chalet in Park City, Utah, for a weekend of skiing later this month, according to two people close to Romney. The reunion of Romney´s political brain trust comes amid a burst of positive buzz about the former Massachusetts governor -- from favorable reviews of "MITT," the Netflix documentary about his campaigns, to chatter among some powerful GOP donors about another Romney presidential campaign in 2016.

Sarah Palin, the tea-party-darling former Alaska governor who ran for vice president in 2008, is leaving the door open for a president run in 2016. ´It depends on what it is that Americans really, really want in a candidate,´ Palin said Friday night. ´If they want a fighter, if they want someone who can so respect our exceptionalism, everything that makes America great, the promise of America. And if we don´t find that, then I would run.´ [Snip] Asked who her favorite presidential hopefuls are so far, she singled out Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul while

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

Disbelieving family and friends of an ex-Navy SEAL who died of an apparent drugs overdose on the ship made famous in the movie Captain Phillips are convinced of a ´cover-up´ and have called for a US investigation into his death, MailOnline can reveal today. The body of Mark Kennedy, a super fit, highly-decorated member of the elite fighting force, was found inside a cabin on the cargo ship Maersk Alabama - the vessel involved in a 2009 hijacking that ended with Somali pirates shot dead by SEALs. Another former SEAL, Jeffrey Reynolds, was found alongside him, also dead from a suspected drug

New York City lefty Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected in a landslide with more than 73 percent of the vote last November. Yet after only two months on the job, his approval rating has been cut nearly in half, with only 39 percent of city voters expressing approval of the job he has done so far. (Snip) But this is a brutal start. For a worst-case scenario, consider the rapid slide of President François Hollande—another far-left candidate who swept into office in a landslide. He saw his approval rating crater within months of taking office; it now sits at

Kuala Lumpur - A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew crashed in the South China Sea on Saturday, Vietnamese state media said, quoting a senior naval official. The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam´s Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site. If the report is confirmed, it would mark the U.S.-built airliner´s deadliest crash since entering service 19 years ago. Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed. It said earlier in the day that no distress signal
