Truth-telling on Petraeus
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 11/14/2012 10:13:06 AM

The Petraeus Affair is a hall of mirrors, full of so many distractions that the truth cannot be perceived. Nearly the entire pundit class is consumed with following the many titillating and alarming questions being raised. They are legitimate, but they are also distractions from a very, very big reality, that is so unpleasant that it requires a powerful and brave mind to see beyond them. Fortunately, for those willing to listen, a truth-teller, who sees the underlying reality, no matter what the heck was going on among the Real Housewives of Centcom, is available to explain things

Lifson is one of a diminishing numbers of truth tellers. And you know, don´t you...that we are living in the last days of Rome? The orgiastic excesses are flashing before us.

The barbarians are not just within our gates but roaming the halls of power, whispering into the ears of our corrupt elite. Perhaps the best we can hope for now is that they will save us the task of finishing off the perfidious quislings among us before we rise up and finish them off, as we will.

Most days very little happens.

I was so hoping that something massive would happen before I die.

....and I´m really old.

1- The Israeli / Pal thingee.
Please, I´m beggin´ you....either fight it out or shut up about it.

2-The Crusades ! As a Catholic School kid, I studied all about the Crusades but never thought I´d get a chance to fight in them.
7 years in Iraq & Asscrackistan struck that off the bucket list.

3-The Whole "Marxist Revolution" myth.
Perhaps we can fight that one out in the next few years. It sure would be worth it.
Or....we could just leave our children in slavery and destitution.

If Gen. DP can speak the truth then we will have a really big problem that we need to address right now.

Good luck with that.

Petraeus had better testify publicly. This behind doors with different stories coming out is not safe for him.

The West Point Honor Code states that
"A cadet will not lie, cheat, steal, or tolerate those who do."
This mentality is not supposed to be jettisoned upon graduation.
Obviously Petraeus and Broadwell saw differently.
We´ll see ..

To the end of our world comments, no offense meant but - December 22, 1944, facing the largest offense on the western front, ill-equipped, surrounded, low on ammo, no hope of air resupply, General Tony McAuliffe answer to the ultimatum by the Germans was ´nuts´. That is the American way. No need to surrender just because things aren´t going our way at the moment.

I sent this to a couple of fellow Ldotters:

Personal opinion: This is all about blackmail, pure and simple. I have nothing but disdain for General Petreaus´ actions; he betrayed his position and subsequently our country by thinking with his ´´little brain´´. The Hubs could have been busted in rank had I written a bad check, much less had an affair with a subordinate.

That said, I am not blind to the fact that it is human nature for anyone to stray outside the bonds of marriage but (as we were lectured by PIAPS) that is a private matter. IMHO, Petraeus was blackmailed into silence until after the election. Having just completed his review of Benghazi – paid out of his own pocket from what I have read – I believe the findings were devastating to this administration so they pulled a Chicago move and blackmailed him. This story is just bullshoot eyewash.

Odd, a mere general getting such tut tutting and no fuss raised with fdr, jfk, slick willy and probably other one or two presidents. Now all of the sudden it is a big deal. The moron in the white house is stealing us blind and lying like a rug and the press is giving him a pass. Not going to worry about a general and his mouthy tell all companion. This second term of the moron is going to be a nightmare.

First, Aye Aye to #10.

Second, General Petraeus lied on orders from the administration in order to perpetuate their lie about Benghazi, under duress of revelation of his relationship with Paula Broadwell. The administration then threw him under the bus immediately after the election. Now, he has nothing to lose by telling all, thus avenging the administration´s betrayal, and, if done in closed session, he is not impeded by his national security constraints.

Methinks the administration tugged on the wrong cape.

Petraeus has already testified under oath that the mob that killed 4 Americans was due to a YouTube video. He will not commit perjury and change his testimony. Hate to say it, but Obama and Co. will skate on this. And I don´t doubt they have more to hold over his head---these people are ruthless.

Rush said he doesn´t think Gen. P will perjure himself by now saying it was not the movie that set off Benghazi. We will see, but if he would tell the TRUTH, it would go a long way toward saving his reputation and showing he can step up and be a real man of character. And then the liars would all be exposed and could be dealt with accordingly.

But I think he will keep on lying.

What a nasty web this former General and his wife are in now, and all because they allowed themselves become a part of this thug administration. He took the offer of Sec.Defense, and she was given a cushy D.C.job. They were then hooked. Then the thugs moved him to Dir.FBI, which had been held by Panetta, and moved Panetta to Sec.Defense where he could play havoc with the military. In the meantime, the General is under their thumb in DC with the FBI. Pure evil, but the General should never have stuck his toe into the vile waters of thuggery and believed he and his family would be safe.

What is he going to do now? He has a wife, two children and a brand new son-in-law who do not want to die yet. What would you do?

It was a very dark day for America when the DemocRATS were allowed to steal the election for Obama in 2012. The Petraeus/Benghazi affair is probably just scratching the surface of the evil inside the Obama regime.

Did he resign with full pension benefits or is that what they have hanging over his head until Benghazi is swept under the rug?

They´ll probably pull that from him anyway so might as well spill the beans. Then write the book.

ACTS OF TREASON


Timeline:


Obama was gun and missile running....(Lochkeed supplied)

Petraeus meets with Romney for VP slot

7/13 the Ethicist letter appears in the NYT´s a fraudulent letter probably from The WH...as The Sword of Damacles over Petraeus

8/6 Obama scoffs that Romney "thinks" Petraeus will be his VP

Benghazi 9/11 rape and murders happen as payback...Stevens for Kaddaffi

Petraeus signed on to the Obama coverup to cover his own indiscretions (Obama White House blackmails and threatens Petraeus for political control and to exact his ruin)

Obama reelected (through fraud) 18 million new Republucan voters enrolled...where or where did they go???

Petraeus submits letter of resignation with affair as excuse.....to aviod missile running exposure ( which many knew of)

Locheed new CEO submits resignation letter for affairs ( supplier of missiles and guns to Obama) now excuses himself to Congressional investigation too ( he thinks)

* Other Considerations:

.Obama rebels take out and kill and rape Russian allie Kaddaffi (turning LIBYA over to the Muslim Brotherhood)

.Obama running guns to Russian allie Syria in attempt to take down Assad and bring Syria under Muslim Brotherhood control...and get to the prize Israel

.This was a Russina sponsored attach in Bengazi...payback for what America did to Russia´s surrogate Kaddaffi...a murder and a rape for a murder and a rape...Kaddaffi begets Stevens...

. A victory lap to to rub it in ...and humiliate America,,,.,,Russian nuclear sub off our East Coast...election Day

From Lamecherry

"So for a short review, a synopsis, so all can look the expert, Obama tries to get Chris Stevens kidnapped while he is worried about David Patreaus in bed with Mitt Romney, so Obama sends in the FBI via conduits to "investigate" things as the cat fight kitties give a cover reason for all of this.
In the meantime, Patreaus to save himself from being blamed for allowing Obama to arm and train terrorists which got Stevens murdered, starts feeding information to Mitt Romney on all of this to head CIA under a Romney regime, not knowing in trying to save himself, that Obama has a sword over Patraeus in all of this sex stuff, just waiting to cut him off after the election theft, as things start to unravel due to the work of this blog concerning ANALGATE.

ButtreausGate is about the cover up of ANALGATE in which Dave´s Deep Throat got him into trouble."

Alas, another reporter asked me the same question I have been repeatedly asked for the past five years. “As an African-American, why are you a member of the Tea Party?” It dawned on me to ask the reporter, “If you are a thinking patriotic American, why are you not a member of the Tea Party?” It is stunning that reporters cannot see the absurdity and racism against white voters in their assumption that Tea Party membership (pushback against Obama's agenda) equals racism.

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned a putrid op-ed in the Washington Post claiming he knew how to fix the Second Amendment to end controversy over its true meaning. The first 10 amendments to the Constitution placed limits on the powers of the new federal government.

I wish that I could say that Justice Stevens was engaged in an accurate although misleading statement. But it is not even that.

It might be time to add to the list the famous Anthony Porter exoneration in Chicago in 1999. Not only is Porter likely guilty of the double murder he was initially charged with, an innocent man therefore sits in an east central Illinois prison serving a 37-year sentence. His probable framing was largely orchestrated by a since-discredited “journalism” professor and his students at Northwestern University, a cowed prosecutor’s office in Cook County, and a Chicago media that

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar.

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

As I sit writing from Berlin, Germany—I woke up this morning with the news that a demented American Nazi and KKK leader, Glenn Miller, has been arrested as the main suspect in the Kansas City murder of 3 American Jews. (Snip) Fortunately, a quick look at some of the anti-Semitic extremist websites has led to the following post by Mr. Miller, reproduced verbatim below: Israel Forming Super PAC to Attack Paul & Obama This is some big dookee, yaw’ll. http://runronpaul.com/interviews/isr…on-paul-obama/ Jew journalist Max Blumenthal exposes and explains this attempt by a foreign government Israel, to buy the presidential election for the neo-con, war-mongering republican
