Obama Knew
National Review Online, by Jeffrey Lord

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 10/25/2012 6:16:01 AM

Obama knew. Say again, Obama knew. So. The question. If what happened in Benghazi wasn't incompetence -- was it ideology? Did Sharia kill Ambassador Chris Stevens, Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, and two Navy SEALs? And is Hillary Clinton's insistence yesterday that the leaked State Department e-mails were "not evidence" yet more evidence that indicates the Obama White House not only knew what was going on but deliberately turned a blind eye to Benghazi because of that ideology? Specifically, did an ideological soft spot for Sharia -- Obama's name is being used by his step-grandmother to raise funds to educate kids in Sharia --

Excellent article and indicts Obama's ideology that he so studiously tries to hide from Americans. I am outraged!

This should be a Must Read.

Mara Liason stated last night that the press was ready to do big stories about Libya, but scrapped them when Romney didnt bring up the issue. Too Which Krathammer stated that its journalistic malpractice to blame the Republican challenger for not covering the biggest scandal since Watergate.

For the "intelligence community" (to use FTA: ''Vice President Biden's words from his debate) to be specifically monitoring Facebook and Twitter for Ansar Al-Sharia means the Obama Administration well knew Ansar Al-Sharia was out and about in Benghazi. Yet somehow it didn't see a threat coming on, of all dates, September 11?'' and, ''Who killed Amb. Stevens? Sharia killed Amb. Stevens.''

0bama is doing exactly what he said he would do back in 2008. Side with the muslims. Every step of the way.

No, 0bama killed Amb. Stevens.

Let’s play “what if.” What if you were a president who had come up through the American left, and all your connections came out of that international globalist socialist movement? You know, the crowd that has joined with the muslim brotherhood and other radical islamic groups to oppose the Israeli “oppressors.”

What if you were in the middle of a losing campaign and heard, through your American leftist friends, that some middle east friends of theirs were planning some anti-American demonstrations on 9/11? What if your people decided to use them to your political advantage, and put together a narrative blaming the demonstrations on an anti-islam video made by a Christian in America, and linking the video with American Christians and that pesky US Constitution?

What if you roll out that narrative in Cairo by issuing an apology even before the demonstrations start? And when all heck breaks loose that evening in Benghazi, might you assume that it’s just part of the political theater you knew was coming? Might you wink at your co-conspirators and head to bed for a good night’s sleep before your Vegas trip the next day? And might your horror at the discovery that people were killed cause you to stick with the planned narrative in a desperate attempt to conceal your treachery?

Who in the White House knew the Cairo demonstrations were coming, and how long in advance?

Yes, but the media was eventually forced to cover Lewinsky and they are now being forced to cover this - just in time for the election.

If there was one single molecule of honor in the entire damnocrat party, they would be demanding zippy's resignation yesterday. But radical ideology and power trumps everything - even dead ambassadors.

None of this matters because Obama still has alqueda on the run. They're running over the middle east and are re surging in Afghanistan.

Why do people have such a hard time believing Obama's failures are actually a success?

the economy is fine because there's a convenience store open down the street.Ooops,sorry,owned by a Pakistani.

Nah, Jeffrey .... you've got it all wrong.
As Hillary, Old Media, Jay, Mara and others at the White House continue to tell us, this is all just a supposition. Besdes, there is no 'controlling legal authority' which will step forward to blame the president. Someone might aim at Hillary, but never at The Won.
.... Besides that, Americans have been doing 'stuff' that angers Islamics, so who can blame them for attacking our embassies and murdering our ambassadors and others?
.... We asked for it.

NOW -- WE find out obama knew and still went off to his fund raiser in lasvegas and never sent in military to help Amabassor Stevens as the war room in the White House watched the film from the drone hovering near by...

Like most terrorist orgainzations, Al-Quada is comprised of "cells". That is individual units operating independently towards a common goal. Killing one member, even a very senior member such as Bin-Laden, damages only a very small fraction of the organization, leaving the rest of them untouched and completely operational. This concept is nothing new. Our intelligence agencies know this well. Presumably "The smartest man in the room" would know this also. But no, he crows about Al-Quada being "on its heels". He knows its a lie.

Good heavens! She is still out there shilling, shucking and jiving. Her phoney statements, pretending she truly wants the examining board to find out what 'really' happened, just don't ring true.
And Hillary, these men whom you knew 'personally' and whom you expressed such pain about losing, why did you leave them to die?

The "acts of terror" reference in his Rose Garden speech was a calculated insertion of an escape hatch. He knew what really happened and wasn't sure if he would get a media pass on it so he (i.e. Valerie Jarrett) inserted this ambiguous reference to terror so he could use it for cover if necessary.

I like how the new spin includes that the information in the e-mails is "social media", as if e-mails are only used for teen gossip. I wonder if Stevens had made a phone call Hillary would refer to phones as "social media" too to downplay his cry for help.

Knowing isn't the issue. It's what he did when he found out that needs exposure.

Romney was dead on correct when he told the joke about the media's job being to hide Mitt's plan for America. He could easily have dropped the other shoe about hiding Obama's actions but too gentlemanly for that.

If they had gotten this movie nonsense to stick and he got re-elected, the movement to stifle free speech and the internet would have soon followed, just like gun control after f&f. Guaranteed.

I really think that when one is a Christian, you get a wisdom and ability it see things with God's eyes. I am so glad I did not vote for this evil man named, Obama. He is truly evil. I would be very afraid for my sons if one of them was in the military. This president would not protect them. Every thing he does is for his re election. It's all about him. People who still support him are blind, deaf, and dumb. Truly! This country will go down if he is re elected.

As other posters have suggested, could the Ambassador have been assured by his gay pal Zero, that this was going to be a staged, election-winning, hostage-taking event, and for them to go along with the plan... with reporters on sight taking pics of *hostages*... Stevens and his men, brave hostages with black material tied over their eyes, and their hands tied behind their back, with snarling terrorists holding guns standing beside them, and the media pleading with the Great Zero to bring home our American Hostages. Great Zero thumps his caved-in chest, brings the hostages home, and their stories glow with love for Great Zero. October surprise. Zero wins election and all the participants get perks.

I have a different take on it.

I think Obama is a pacifist (coward) who thinks if he cow-tows to the Sharia bullies (among other Muslims), they will back down & stop hating/killing us. He is already forcing our troops to announce their presence before they start attacking terrorist cells in the Afghan region. So it will be a "fair fight". As if that's how they play!

He thinks if he goes after them he becomes a GW Bush "cowboy" that will only incite more violence. So he gets tough with the good guys:

Video documentary makers (who expose Islam)
Israel (the Gaza strip occupiers)
Pro-Lifers (anti-women)
Millionaires (Wall Street, Eeeevil Oil; celebs not included)
Tea Party (racists) --
i.e. anyone who has the guts to stand for the truth but is non-violent.

Too bad he didn't grow up learning about America. What happened to Iran's American hostages when "cowboy" Reagan was elected? Carter was the same kind of pacifist coward & they were taken on his watch. These Muslim bullies coughed them up just before Reagan took office! I am absolutely convinced this Embassy attack would have never happened with a man of courage in the WH.

# 33 Of course Mortargate
is a high crime and misdemeanor
and clearly Dereliction of Duty.
It is unimaginable that the Commander in Chief actually watched Americans being slaughtered, shrugged
and then went to bed.
Of course , this same guy has shrugged the past 44 months
over the 1514 soldiers , sailors and Marines that have died
under Valerie Jarrett's command in Afghanistan ,
the 264 service members who have died in Iraq and
the 13 dead soldiers at Ft Hood .
What's another four dead white guys ?
The way Congress is now configured , the House would impeach Obama , but, the Democrat Senate would never convict.
Politically , it would be a huge distraction to start impeachment proceedings.
Don't forget , though ,that
We the People can impeach Obama in 12 days.
Removal will have to wait until January 20, 2013.

“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

Just take a good look at that photo of BHO with David Letterman and tell me our president isn’t the essence of gravitas. Remember “gravitas?” Remember the who-has-it and who-doesn’t discussions about gravitas? (I’ll betcha he even cried all the way to that fundraiser in Vegas.) Those are the kinds of presidential qualities he possesses. He knows what his priorities are. He never loses sight of his serious commitments and responsibilities. Oh, and thanks to his nanny, Valerie Jarrett, he now knows gravitas is not what you pour over your mashed potatoes.

I think #7s scenario is highly credible, and there are other theories out there that go even farther,in what the plan was. But bottom line - the behavior of inaction that was on display here can be completely explained by the idea that this was an expected event. I just differ with the concept that obama et al were horrified at the murderous turn that it took. Horrified that it can be their downfall,maybe, much more than the horror at the loss of life. These people have no souls. I am boiling, boiling mad.

From a previous Lucianne post:
http://www.oregonmag.com/blasphemy-begets-conspiracy-theory/"

"So, did someone encourage Mideastern TV stations to suddenly focus on a dated, obscure film’s existence? Who has ties to the Hollywood/internet powers that be who would know what motivates news and what doesn’t, and then who or what organization took advantage of the turmoil to where our embassies were stormed and/or burned in multiple countries? One could claim a conspiracy about an election-year October surprise occurring in September, caused and/or fomented by a 2012 Plumber’s group connected to an Administration from none other than Chicago."

With Christie at helm, RGA raises
$23.5 million in first quarter
Washington Post, by Sean Sullivan    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/3/2014 10:52:03 AM     Post Reply
The Republican Governors Association raised $23.5 million during the first three months of 2014, the organization will announce Thursday. It´s a record haul for the RGA, which is chaired by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R). The RGA has nearly $60 million in the bank, money it will need as it seeks to defend 22 seats compared to just 14 for Democrats. Most of the money the RGA raised came from the group´s 527 arm, which hauled in more than $22 million. The 501(c)(4) affiliate raised $1.3 million. Christie, who has come under intense scrutiny and criticism from Democrats in the wake

15-20 Percent Aren´t Paying
Obamacare Premiums, Insurer Says
National Journal, by Sam Baker    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/3/2014 10:48:07 AM     Post Reply
One of the biggest players in Obamacare´s exchanges says 15 to 20 percent of its new customers aren´t paying their first premium—which means they´re not actually covered. The latest data come from the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, whose members—known collectively as "Blues" plans—are participating in the exchanges in almost every state. Roughly 80 to 85 percent of people who selected a Blues plan through the exchanges went on to pay their first month´s premium, a BCBSA spokeswoman said Wednesday. The new statistics, particularly from such a large carrier, help define how many people are actually getting covered under the Affordable Care

New Paul Ryan Budget Cuts Trillions
in Spending, Faces Difficult Vote

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan on Tuesday released his fiscal year 2015 budget, in which he cuts $5.1 trillion in spending, mostly from health care, to balance the budget by 2024. The budget would repeal ObamaCare, including the money-saving Independent Payment Advisory Board, cutting $1.2 trillion in federal outlays. It turns Medicaid into a block grant program for states, which would save $732 billion over 10 years. It essentially aims to privatize Medicare, offering enrollees

Providing another dramatic example of its readiness to protect freedom of speech, the Roberts Court yesterday struck down a campaign-finance regulation that limited the total amount that an individual may donate to political candidates, thereby nixing a rule that had been in effect for more than 40 years. The plaintiff in the case was one Shaun McCutcheon, a conservative businessman from Alabama who argued that limits on his aggregate spending represented a violation of his constitutional right to free expression. The court agreed, 5–4. If the Citizens United case serves as any indication, the word “McCutcheon” will soon be hurled liberally

VA Pays $200 Million for Nearly
1,000 veterans’ Wrongful Deaths
Daily Beast, by Aaron Glantz    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/3/2014 7:23:53 AM     Post Reply
Since 9/11 almost 1,000 veterans have died due to negligence in the Veterans healthcare system. After lengthy legal battles the VA is finally making payments to their families. An Iraq War veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder and a history of drug dependency is found dead on the floor of his room at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in West Los Angeles after doctors give him a 30-day supply of the anti-anxiety medication alprazolam and a 15-day supply of methadone. In Shreveport, La., a veteran overdoses on morphine while housed in a locked VA psychiatric unit. In a Minnesota VA psych

Harry Reid Now Spreading Baseless Claim

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official

Paul Ryan has laid down another marker. Pity he doesn’t have the power to lay down the law. Representative Ryan has a budget, and the Democrats do not have one, nor do they plan to produce one. The proverb holds that you can’t beat something with nothing, but that is precisely what congressional Democrats are going to do with this Republican budget, just as they have with earlier iterations of the same concept. Representative Ryan finds himself in much the same position as Senator Rand Paul: ready to lead, a bit short on followers. My recent pessimistic assessment of Senator Rand Paul’s

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

Appellate Division ruling allows

George Soros’ South American ex-squeeze can sue him for alleged assault and battery stemming from a bedroom brawl in 2010, the Appellate Division ruled Tuesday, upholding part of a lower court´s decision. But the panel tossed Adriana Ferreyr’s attempt to go after the billionaire hedge fund manager for infliction of emotional distress, a part of her suit that had previously been upheld by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Debra James. In effect, the Appellate judges narrowed the focus of the case the Brazilian TV soap actress brought against Soros in 2010, when she sued him for breaking his promise to buy

A new burial area for lesbians only is being inaugurated this weekend in a two-century-old cemetery in the German capital. A 400-square-meter (4,300-square-foot) area of the Lutheran Georgen Parochial cemetery, established in 1814 in central Berlin, will be reserved as a graveyard for up to 80 lesbians, said Usah Zachau, a spokeswoman for the Safia association, a national group primarily for elderly lesbians. The association said it had created a burial area to be inaugurated Sunday, as a space "where life and death connect, distinctive forms of cemetery culture can develop and where the lesbian community can live together in the afterlife."

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia -- The investigation into what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is charging ahead on two fronts: new high-tech tools and good old-fashioned shoe leather. While they scanned the ocean surface for a 26th day Wednesday with planes and ships, the possibility that something sinister may have happened hasn´t been discounted. Malaysian police said Wednesday they have interviewed about 170 people, and will continue questioning families and those who had access to the plane. Officials have always said they were looking at four possibilities: hijacking, sabotage, personal problems and psychological issues. On Monday, a Malaysian government source told CNN that the

Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul told fellow Republicans on Tuesday that the future of their party depends on them connecting with Hispanics in a more empathetic way and on getting in front of immigration reform – a message that further signals his flirtation with a 2016 presidential run. “If we are to change people’s attitudes toward … the Republican Party, we have to show up and we have to have something to say,” Paul told a small group of conservatives gathered at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. “I hope to be part of that dialogue.” This certainly was not the

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

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement.

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. 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

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

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.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

"As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

At a press conference to push legislation to raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) criticized industrialists David and Charles Koch, calling them “shadow billionaires” who use their wealth to “rig our political system.” Reid’s sharp comments come on a day when the Wall Street Journal published a commentary written by Charles Koch, in which he described the brothers’ decision to get involved in politics to preserve the individual freedom and free markets that he said are the pillars of the American republic. “These two men are a pair of shadow billionaires spending
