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?"

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 White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

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.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

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.

Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
