Obama´s Benghazi Scapegoat
Gets Year In Prison

Investor´s Business Daily, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:HollowLeg, 11/9/2012 10:38:40 PM

Scandal: The filmmaker blamed for the terrorist attack on our Libyan consulate and the murder of our ambassador goes to jail for an "unrelated" matter. If you believe that, you also believe al-Qaida is on its heels. If the Obama administration had heeded warnings from Ambassador Chris Stevens that, after two previous incidents, the consulate in Benghazi was surrounded by terrorist training camps and couldn´t withstand an organized attack, Mark Basseley Youssef might still be a free man today. If requests for enhanced security had not been repeatedly denied, or if

So the day after the election, a federal judge follows orders from the Office of the President and sentences this guy. Castro must be proud.

Just curious, but how does this offense compare to the illegal immigration status of an uncle and an aunt of the president. Surely we aren´t using different standards for different classes of people. Wasn´t there some silly attitude that we are a nation of laws and not of men?

How about "time already served"?

History books are going to have a field day with Obama and this administration.

Is Obama playing that old game "Can you Top this?"

Hillary should be prosecuted for promising to put the videographer in jail and then doing it. She told the reason for his prosecution and it happened. She did it. we´re done.

There is a reason you have to search the internet to see a picture of this Mark Basseley Youssef (aka Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, aka Sam Bacile). The media would very much prefer you imagine him as a 50 year old southern white supremacist or perhaps a Jew, rather than an Egyptian identity theft criminal.

Mark Basseley Yousse is only today´s Emmanuel Goldstein for the daily two minute hate session. Every one has committed a felony or two by now if you dig deeply enough so there is more than enough reason for any enemy of Barack to go to prison if he needs a scapegoat to cover his bony rump. And there are more than enough Good Germans, er, Americans who are willing to do this kind of railroading. I bet there were parties last night or tonight to celebrate a job well done.

The sentence is a warning shot across the bow of anyone daring to exercise their first amendment rights when said rights go against the policies of this Administration.

It should be a warning to talk radio and ANY conservative outlet for news and commentary. This videographer did nothing wrong but tyranny is this Administration´s best tool -- the threat of jail time for speaking your mind should send chills down the spines of any conservative website, radio talk show host, TV show, newsletteer, blog or any other source that/who says anything this Dictator doesn´t like.

President Jarrett will see to it that there will be an Enemies List as long as your arm and those individuals will be targeted. It has already begun; look at the Democrats calling for Rush Limbaugh to be shut down. They´ve got the truth and we can´t have that, can we?

There is no word "sacred" in the Democrat vocabulary. Nothing is sacred; marriage, family, Constitution, church, God, flag, rights, liberty, freedom, speech, property, individual...

Lets face it, Obama got elected based on perception. A perception within a people that have been conditioned by marketing and the media under direction of corporate greed.
Logic, reasoning and evidence are so not with it, so archaic, so narrow minded, so bigoted and besides, it requires thought and effort. American´s slothful lives have made us overweight physically and brain dead mentally.
The typical American today can´t make a choice or decision without the media telling them what to buy, what to think and what to do; so voting has become nothing more than an exercise in obedience to their masters.
Americans don´t know the difference between right and wrong, good and evil or a lie from the truth. They turn on the tube and let all the subtle suggestions of morality and values permeate their empty brains until they are nothing more than walking zombies unable to take care of themselves, dead mentally. They are illiterate, can´t navigate through life, can´t add two numbers together, can´t communicate without a smart phone and would starve to death if there wasn´t a safety net from a vote seeking politician there to save them.
Americans have redefined freedom and liberty to their perverted limits until they believe they can do whatever they want without consequences and with responsibility, because corporate greed has enabled them to do so; and the price has been the destruction of America from within.

Americans have been conditioned and are controlled by the media which is controlled by corporate greed and Obama is their Front Man.

The guy in prison is a career criminal. If he were out he´d be stealing more money through identity theft. He may be a patsy, but he was a convicted felon before the Benghazi terror incident, and he did violate his parole.

The videographer may well be the first political prisoner of Zippy’s second term, but I’m skeptical he’s the innocent victim of happenstance that’s being assumed.

We know that the Muslim Brotherhood have been “visiting” the White House throughout the first term, and that Obama supported and facilitated the “Arab Spring” in both Egypt and Libya while appearing nonplussed at the MB government takeovers. We also know that Al Queda (wholly owned subsidiary of the MB) planned and orchestrated the riot and takeover of the Cairo Embassy to coincide with the military attack on the “diplomatic mission” in Benghazi. A trigger incident was needed that provided an “offense” for which Obama could apologize and not have to publicly identify the true nature of the “incident”, i.e.; a terrorist attack against U.S. soil on the 11th anniversary of 9-11-01. These people would not wait for some opportune “anti-muslim” video or surf the internet hoping to find one. I submit they manufactured one.

IIRC the storyline described Youssef as an Egyptian immigrant with U.S. citizenship and several fraud convictions. He was also supposed to be a Coptic devout enough to defend his faith by making a video against Islam at the request a wealthy Christian businessman in Egypt. As a cover story this places the blame specifically on Christians and Free Speech, presenting a public focal point that allows persecution of Christians and limits on the 1st Amendment.

Isn’t it odd that a wealthy Christian businessman in Egypt would fund such a project in the middle political upheaval and not be taking care of his family and business assets? I think the “videographer” is a MB agent. Did anyone acknowledge this man? Not is priest? Not fellow parishioners? We do know he is a criminal that emigrated from Egypt. That could make him an opportune operative willing to take the public fall. He was swept from the public within 48 hours of the Benghazi attack being announced, held incommunicado until the election, now convicted and sentenced in pubic. However, I don’t think he’s off to prison. I think he’s now part of the islam witness protection program. Removing tin foil hat.

A lecturer at English universities, Lewis became a superstar author by explaining his faith and weaving it creatively into novels.

Energy Revolution: America´s natural gas boom threatens Russia´s economic strategy, an expert says, leaving it with few alternatives to rescue its economy while threatening to shatter its energy stranglehold on Europe. Russia´s abundance of energy resources has long allowed it to use energy both as a foreign policy weapon and as the bedrock of the Russian economy. Whenever energy prices rose, Russia benefited and its neighbors often felt the restraining leash of dependence on Russian energy, particularly natural gas. Government-controlled energy giant Gazprom was in such a strong position it could demand decade-long contracts

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today.

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection. When she started protesting the doctor´s choice of medication, "He just cut me off totally," she said. "I´ve never been in and out from a visit faster." These days,

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture. But not everyone has accepted it. Cliven Bundy’s armed standoff with the National Park

At a petite 5’3’’, Sage Santangelo may not look like a combat fighter at first glance. But the female second lieutenant has never let that hold her back from pursuing her dream of becoming an infantry officer in the Marine Corps. Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.
