Slain SEAL’s father to Obama: ‘Better
to die the death of a hero than it is
to live the life of a coward’

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/29/2012 6:11:30 AM

In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Geraldo at Large” Sunday night, Charles Woods, father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, said President Barack Obama did not do all he could to save the four Americans who were killed in a terrorist raid on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Obama should have reacted sooner, he said, because the consulate was American soil. “I was contacted by military personnel yesterday, who told me an interesting fact. And that is any consulate anywhere in the world is American soil,” Woods said.

Well, I just watched Hussein on Morning Joe call it a 'tragedy', not terrorism. No follow up questions from Joe or Mika, just let him tell his lies. 26 minutes into Morning Joe and no other mentions of Benghazi. Of course.

Why this father would ever appear on the Geraldo program is beyond me!!!

Missed this program; but Geraldo has been on the morning programs telling the couch crew how Obama did a great job on Bengazi.
What bull.

Geraldo has his Obama kneepads on.

Obama has 8 more days to stall this story from reaching critical mass.Of course there's a willful ignorance on the left that plays into it also.

Following the rules set up by Liberals during the Bush years, this father's "moral authority" is "absolute" and he must be listened to...
Yeah, and liberals I know took down the "dissent is the highest form of patriotism" signs as soon as Obama was elected. Now it's "unpatriotic" to question the president.
And they cannot see the double standard here.

''Obama should have reacted sooner, he said, because the consulate was American soil.''

I'm surprised Mr. Woods didn't already know this - he says he's an attorney. My son (in the military currently) was FUMING about this, on that very day! Even before we learned about the Ambassador and the other 3 who had died in Benghazi, my son was ranting about the Islamists scaling the wall of our Cairo embassy, and burning our flag! ''That's American soil over there!! Why are we doing nothing about this?!!''

Of course, he KNEW why..... my son's, these men's, C-in-C is, and always has been, practicing taqqiya. (Ref. Lucianne.com 10/28/12 - http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=709205)

The father must have had further thoughts. He said just previously, he forgives Obama and Obama needs to turn his life around. Maybe it finally dawned on him what a travesty his son's death was and how he was betrayed.

Please let us not let this man get away with this- it's not a forged certificate, nor hidden school records.

It was obvious on O'Reilly's program the other night geraldo was sporting kneepads for obama....

BUT -- the Navy Seal's Dad is a hero himself -- for having the courage to speak out loud what the whole country knows....

His son was a hero -- and his president REFUSED to send him help when he needed it....

Beware America -- Navy Seal Tyrone Woods -- is just the first of many who will be thrown under the bus for obama.

40 years ago, when I was flying missions over Laos and a pilot was shot down, we went to rescue him. Immediately! We didn't wait for more info or a clear assesment, we went to rescue a fellow American and sometimes we lost people doing it. But we had a real President and a real SecDef back then.

Christian forgiveness is something in the heart and soul. Mr. Woods is living his faith, bless him. And he is right when he "heaps hot coals upon" Obama's head with his forgiveness.

But the deadness in Obama's soul won't react to being told he's forgiven. My guess is that Obama is thinking "Who the hell is this guy to forgive ME?"

Obama won't give Mr. Woods or his son or the Bengazi deaths a second thought unless it improves his election chances. In fact, his election chances were the reason he refused them help in the first place; he can't have the appearance of unrest in the Muslim world during election time, can he? After all, O said that he personally improved relations in the Middle East.

Right. Evil, just evil...

My thoughts on this: I can imagine that Zippy didn't choose to defend the "consulate" because it really was NOT a consulate. It was the location of a CIA operation running weapons to Syrian rebels (read Al Quaeda) the Administration didn't want us to know about. Zippy doesn't dare say it wasn't a consulate, thus not meriting defense, because then he gets asked what we're really doing there. Christopher Stevens wasn't so much an ambassador but the local facilitator of Zippy's unauthorized support of Al Quaeda against (somewhat) civilized society.

It is Mr. Wood's prerogative as the father of a slain soldier to forgive his son's CIC who got him killed. However, looking how things are shaping up in the Middle East, I think that is not going to help Barack at all.

There will be war and millions will die because Barack Obama's Marxism refuses to perceive and deal with resurgent islamic imperialism. The blood of every innocent individual is on the hands of jihadis everywhere, but not without the helping hand given by useful idiots like the progressives, with Barack Obama at the head of them all.

The "instrument" wears a coward's mask. The "instrument" styles incompetence. The "instrument" is probably a clinically detached and lawless "sociopath." But the experts know his "artistic composition" is an operatic and complex and visionary "Le Destruction of America." Despite the fact that it stinkingly off key, and that he sings out of his behind, 47% of fans may even riot if he is not universally acclaimed as the new Caruso.

As a Christian, I understand that we are called upon to forgive all sinners, as our Lord has commanded us to.

Still, I think that Geraldo was his usual manipulative pro-Obama self and when he kissed Mr. Woods and said "I love you too.", I thought of the Juda's kiss.

Another point: Mr. Woods kept explaining how he "respected the office of the President of the United States". - Don't you agree that the "office" exists for an honorable Commander in Chief to inhabit as an elected leader of the people?

Mr. Obama has disgraced the office.

I don't know why y'all think the "American soil" aspect of the Benghazi debacle would have any resonance with Obama. He doesn't respect American sovereignty in the continental United States (for example, witness his supine deference to UN elections observers as superior to Texas law), why would anyone think Obama respects American sovereignty on small patches of soil in Egypt and Libya?

#19 makes an excellent point, and one I don't really doubt. However, I think the response of O was more generalized and automatic (hurt re-election...stand down). Also, if it was an AQ-helping operation, why would AQ attack? Just musing here...

It's hard to fathom that that boob Geraldo is still employed by Fox; however, knowing Ailes's (and Murdock's) propensity for sensationalism and Ailes's statement that they're moving left, I suppose it's not really surprising. Just another reason not to watch.

Mr. Woods - God bless you, sir. Your son was a fine and honorable man who died a her's death. God does not look on these things lightly.

My heart goes out to the parents of all the fallen Americans in Benghazi. Mr. Woods is a hero for speaking up, in whatever venue he can.

Lots of people think Whore-aldo is brilliant so maybe they watch him on Fox; I don't. If they did, they needed to hear Mr. Woods.

I cannot remember the program, maybe Jeanine, where Ann Coulter and Pat Caddell were guests. Caddell was livid about Benghazi, emotional to the point of tears. That kind of justifiable anger must be seen a bit more.

The so-called media is unbelievable in their participation in this cover-up. Talk about target rich environment! 1. Where are the people from the embassy staff who were rescued? 2. What happened to the local guards our "friends" in Libya provided? Why were Gen Hamm and Admiral Guaemane(sp?) booted? Their careers are over, and they are in uniform, so they can't talk now. If they were to blame for the mess, Obama would be braying about it from the rooftops. My guess is they fiercely objected to the massacre 0 was ordering them to abet.

That said, somewhere I seem to recall footage of big brave self righteous worthless Geraldo in the field in Libya I think before things got really bad and there was wild shooting by unidentified people/sides and Geraldo was complaining about them not knowing who was who and possibly being shot at himself. Geraldo is who Geraldo always was -- lowlife scum. Now wearing Obama kneepads as noted above.

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

For Obamacare, What Counts As Success?

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

"He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week."
