Even with his own reelection soundly in the bag, President Barack Obama is keeping the truth about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi as secret as his own locked-from-public-knowledge credentials. With four more years in his pocket to complete his destructive Fundamental Transformation of America, Obama is refusing outright to inform Americans why calls for help from American Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans to save their lives were ignored until their own violent deaths silenced them. This was Obama’s non-answer to Fox News reporter Ed Henry’s simple question at the White House yesterday:
He won´t be impeached no matter what he did or didn´t do. The Democrats in the Senate will not vote for removal under any circumstances even if treason could be proved. We need to just quit bringing up impeachment it´s a waste of time.
Sorry for the double post, but #1, you are incorrect. The Senate is needed only to convict, and you are probably correct that they won´t. However, that doesn´t mean that the HOR can´t and won´t impeach the president. That´s what they did to Clinton. Impeachment is certainly not a waste of time here.
Obama is dragging his feet and maintaining a coverup until the Electoral College casts their votes no later than Christmas Eve. He is not the President elect until the votes are opened in early January. If Benghazi were to blow wide open and confirm gross negligence and perhaps a treasonous cover-up, would electors change their votes? I want answers before they cast their votes in mid December. We could avoid the impeachment process which our country can not tolerate now.
While the real work in Washington is going on over the budget, too many are obsessing over a minor event with the hope it will lead to the removal of Obama. Obama won the election, he is the choice of far more than half the population. Time to move on and fight the battles of the future.
And in the meantime, where did the investigation of Fast & Furious go? Everything, & I mean everything going on in this administration needs to be kept in front of the American people, until it becomes too much for them to hide.
Dear Leader has been living in ´´dead boy live girl´´ land for at least 6 years. There´s no way he´ll be impeached, no matter how much we wish it to happen. He is protected by the media lapdogs, a cooperative senate leadership, a spineless house leadership and ValJar and the rottweilers of one world government.
#12´s glimmer won´t work if citizens don´t get serious about voter/election fraud by ensconced libtards fraudulently counting the votes. You need some public hangings to make it somewhat risky for these traitorous cretins to cheat. And that means starting today people, not someday. As well as local libtard judges who enable the cheaters to not be brought to account for their crimes. Look at what the West campaign is going through with their challenge.
It takes 67 in the Senate to convict. It will never happen. I think it´s something even worse than impeachment they fear. I think they´re afraid a NATO ally, Turkey, was complicit in an attack on American soil which resulted in the deaths of 4 Americans. That´s why they don´t want to investigate. That´s why the militia ringleader sips orange frappes in a downtown Benghazi hotel without a care in the world.
The Benghazi "Annex" was a warehouse of arms which the CIA had illegally provided to the Libyan "rebels" (Muslim Brotherhood). They were trying to confiscate them so they could ship them to the "rebels" (Muslim Brotherhood) in Syria through Turkey. That´´s why Ambassador Stevens had dinner with the Turkish Ambassador the night he was killed. And that´s why this bunch of reprobates in the White House will do anything to keep it under wraps.
#12, I believe it requires a 2/3 majority vote in the Senate to convict an impeached president and remove him from office. Unless 2/3 of the citizens of the U.S. want him removed from office and are willing to vote accordingly in the 2014 elections (or in even greater numbers to counteract the inevitable Democrat voter fraud), then we cannot get rid of Obama this way.
Thank you #3 and #4. You are correct about the HOR does the Impeaching (a la Clinton) but the Senate does the convicting (they didn´t convict Clinton). Also until the Electoral College does their formal vote, he is only the supposed winner of the 2012 election. This is probably why he is dragging his feet.
If I were in the HOR, I would push for articles of impeachment. Obama is setting a very dangerous precedent for our country by being allowed to disregard the Constitution. The House must uphold it now, or we are lost. I have my doubts that the Supreme Court will do anything to help to rectify the criminal actions by our fraud in the WH.
"I can can tell you that immediately upon finding out that our folks were in danger, that my orders to my national security team were do whatever we need to do to make sure they’re safe. And that’s the same order I would give any time that I see Americans are in danger — whether they’re civilian or military — because that’s our number one priority.”
Poster #4, I searched for an answer, only 24 states don´t have the requirement that Electors vote the way their states has them pledged. The other 26 states and DC have State Law # listed, a few replace the Elector who refuses to vote the way they are pledged.
In Oklahoma (and three other states, it is a misdemeanor with up to a $1,000 fine to change their vote, however they are pledged to Romney.
If Benghazi gets more attention, and more scandals get some actual air time in the Pravda press, who knows. Yesterday, I saw a red/blue map by county and even California was a sea of red with little islands of blue on the coast.
Has it ever happened that an Elector revolt changed the outcome of the election?
Mayor Bob Filner is ending his intensive behavioral therapy triggered by sexual harassment allegations earlier than expected while officials on Friday said the locks had been changed at his office.Meanwhile, his political support continued to crater as his last two allies on the City Council called for his resignation, making it unanimous, and U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer reiterated her call for him to step down in an impassioned open letter to the mayor. Source corrected by Staff
Famed actor Matt Damon is so disillusioned with President Obama that he almost feels as though the president dumped him. “He broke up with me,” Damon told BET in an interview published on the network’s site Thursday afternoon. Damon was famously a big supporter of Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, but that relationship has soured over the last five years, especially after this year’s big revelations about the NSA secretly collecting the metadata of millions of American citizens.
Let me just add one important observation to David’s splendid and much remarked upon essay yesterday about why and how the U.S. was victorious against Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany in World War II. Yes, we were ruthless in prosecuting the war — not only in Japan, with the atomic destruction of two cities and the firebombing of Tokyo (for a brilliant fictional treatment of the latter, be sure to read James Dickey’s To the White Sea), but also in the near-demolition of Germany as well. Every major city in Germany was destroyed and both Hamburg and Dresden
NEW YORK -- It was just a few minutes into Anthony Weiner´s door-to-door canvass of a Harlem public housing complex Thursday night, and the New York City mayoral candidate was already agitated. As he scanned his staff-prepared list of apartment numbers and corresponding residents´ names, the candidate shook his head in disapproval. "This is no good, the way you have this organized," he said to one of two young, female aides who were accompanying him. “This is N.G. -- not great.” A few minutes later, Weiner remained fixated on the quality of his staff’s advance work,
Apparently no espionage tool that Congress gives the National Security Agency is big enough or intrusive enough to satisfy the agency’s inexhaustible appetite for delving into the communications of Americans. Time and again, the N.S.A. has pushed past the limits that lawmakers thought they had imposed to prevent it from invading basic privacy, as guaranteed by the Constitution.
Tonight, I went on Lawrence O´Donnell´s show, and Lawrence O´Donnell yelled at me. Or, rather, he O´Reilly´d at me. That O´Donnell interrupted and harangued and mansplained and was generally an angry grandpa at me is not what I take issue with, however. What bothers me is that, look: your producers take the time to find experts to come on the show, answer your questions, and, hopefully, clarify the issue at hand.
In the relentlessly efficient world of Jeffrey P. Bezos, Amazon employees quickly learn when they have overtaxed the attention of their chief executive. He quietly pulls out his smartphone and starts replying to e-mails. In extreme cases, Bezos will walk out. This demanding style is as much a signature of the Amazon.com founder as his famously long-term approach to developing new products or services, say people who have worked with the man who this week agreed to buy The Washington Post for $250 million. Bezos (pronounced “BAY-zohs”) has developed a precise and inventive approach to management
A viral video showing the beating of a 13-year-old white boy by three African-American youths in Florida has left hundreds of thousands of viewers horrified, but critics say the case doesn´t seem to be attracting much sympathy from self-styled civil rights activists. In the chilling video, three 15-year-old boys repeatedly beat and kick a victim police said was left with a broken arm and two black eyes. Although Florida came under fire in the wake of the Trayvon Martin
A plane from Ireland is landing in Philadelphia after a threat, according to Philadelphia police. Police are not sure at this point what they are dealing with, if anything. They said the threat, which is unsubstantiated, was called in by an unknown male. This is not an emergency landing. US Air Flight #723 was schedule to land at Philadelphia International today at 1:45 p.m. According to the airline´s website, the flight came in from Dublin, Ireland and arrived at 1:58 p.m.
A huge fire has broken out at the main international airport in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi. The Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) said Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) had been closed and passengers evacuated. Cabinet secretary for transport Michael Kamau said the fire was "very severe" and urged people to stay away from the airport. Images showed flames raging from one of the main buildings. The interior ministry tweeted that an evacuation of the entire airport was under way, with only essential personnel remaining, but said the fire had been contained.
During their whirlwind tour of Cairo Tuesday, two top GOP senators held the most extensive meeting to date between U.S. officials and senior officials in the embattled Muslim Brotherhood, whose supporters are fighting in the streets to overturn last month’s military takeover of Egypt. Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) also met with Egyptian Prime Minister Hazem El Beblawi, the leader of the military takeover Gen. Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, Vice President Mohamed ElBaradei, local political party leaders, and civil society representatives.
In a May 30, 2013, letter to CIA officers on the ground last fall in Benghazi, Libya, CIA director John Brennan notifies survivors of those attacks that congressional oversight committees remain interested in hearing from them. HPSCI (House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence) and SSCI (Senate Select Committee on Intelligence), Brennan wrote, “have asked that CIA leadership reach out to officers who were in Benghazi during the attacks to let them know of the committees’ interest in hearing first-hand account. While the committees have asked that we make those
While media mogul Oprah Winfrey has been promoting her new film, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” she revealed she was a recent victim of profiling while shopping in a store in Zurich.(Snip)“I was in Zurich the other day at a store, whose name I will not mention,” Winfrey said on “Entertainment Tonight,” “and I didn’t have my eyelashes on, but I was in full Oprah Winfrey gear…but obviously, ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ is not shown in Zurich. So this doesn’t happen to me unless somebody obviously doesn’t know that it’s me.” Winfrey went on to explain that she was in Zurich for Tina Turner’s wedding,
Nobody tells Oprah she can´t afford a handbag. Oprah Winfrey is one of the richest entertainers in the world, thanks to her willdly successful 25-season run on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and her latest media foray with the newly revitalized Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). The entertainer earned an estimated $77 million from June 2012 to June 2013 alone, according to Forbes, but she says she still experiences racism because she is African American. Take this latest incident in Switzerland, where "The Butler" star went to attend the nuptials of good friend and singer Tina Turner last month.
The Washington Post is a legend in the minds of the Washington elite, so its financial decline has caused quiet panic. As NPR media reporter David Folkenflik put it, “You think of stories like the Pentagon Papers, Watergate, these are all stories where The Washington Post led the nation’s understanding, the world’s understanding of some major issues.” Outside the liberal media, you wonder how long Post fans can wallow in their Nixon-crumbling polyester “glory days” in the early 1970s. But nostalgia ruled as the Graham family sold the Post to Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon.com.
During his Wednesday appearance on Jay Leno´s "Tonight Show,´ President Obama made three factual gaffes; one of them involved the claim that cities not found along the Gulf of Mexico are. Were Obama a Republican, these gaffes would have led news coverage for the next forty-eight hours. Not only did most of the media ignore or downplay these gaffes; the Associated Press went so far as to cover one of them up. In its coverage Thursday, rather than point out the president´s geographical error, the wire service made it look as though no error was made.
At a White House press conference Friday afternoon, President Obama said that health insurance plans offered under Obamacare will be "significantly cheaper" than plans currently on the market, but a string of recent reports say that isn´t true. "What happens on October 1, in 53 days, is for the remaining 15 percent of the population that doesn´t have health insurance, they´re going to be able to go on a website or call up a call center and sign up for affordable, quality health insurance at a significantly cheaper rate than what they can get right now on
During a press conference yesterday, President Obama revealed the existence of a sealed indictment in the Benghazi attacks in Libya on September 11, 2012, leaving some experts questioning whether the president broke the law. Federal law states that ´no person may disclose [a sealed] indictment´s existence,´ and that doing so may be ´punished as a contempt of court,´ a charge that carries a minimum sentence of six months prison. The announcement came as a surprise to some insiders, as the existence of a sealed indictment has not been publicly confirmed or denied by law enforcement or
The Clintons have decided to rent a different house in the Hamptons this summer after they only received a small portion of their security deposit back from the home they rented last year. The famous Democrats have been frequent visitors to the expensive summer getaway in Long Island, and rented the same beachfront house in 2011 and 2012. [Snip] When it comes to rentals in the Hamptons, many owners use the security deposits as a way to pay for the utility fees like heat and grounds-keeping charges. It should be little surprise then that the Lily Pond Lane home
During an hour-long deep dive into the growing use of food stamps in America, Fox News highlighted “the new face of food stamps.” That new face is a pina colada-sipping, lobster-loving lothario named Jason Greenslate. Greenslate, a 29-year-old La Jolla California surfer and musician who sings that he does not want a “motherfucking job” and has “fuck no” guilt about living on $200 of what he calls “free money ” — or what the government called Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Benefits — while he avoids a job to hang out on the beach, sing and chase women.
Eydie Gorme, a popular nightclub and television singer as a solo act and as a team with her husband, Steve Lawrence, has died. She was 84. Gorme, who also had a huge solo hit in 1963 with "Blame it on the Bossa Nova," died Saturday at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas following a brief, undisclosed illness, said her publicist, Howard Bragman. Gorme was a successful band singer and nightclub entertainer when she was invited to join the cast of Steve Allen´s local New York television show in 1953. She sang solos and also did duets and comedy skits with Lawrence, a rising young singer who had joined
President Barack Obama announced Friday afternoon that the White House will publicly release a summary of the legal authorities through which the National Security Agency conducts its controversial surveillance programs. ´Given the history of abuse by governments,´ he said, it is important to explain how such a program is managed, and - equally important - what it may not do. He described his working relationship with Vladimir Putin as ´candid´ and ´blunt,´ and seemed to dismiss concerns that the Russian president´s body language indicated a lack of willingness to work with the United States.
EDGARTOWN, Mass. — President Barack Obama opened the first summer vacation of his second term Saturday on Martha’s Vineyard, trading Washington debates over the budget, government surveillance and his health care overhaul for a hoped-for carefree week filled with golf, beach outings and hanging-out time with family and friends. (Snip) As Air Force One flew north, Obama got into a vacation mindset by trading his suit and tie for more suitable attire: khakis and a blue shirt with rolled-up sleeves. First lady Michelle Obama, who introduced him at the convention, kept her yellow-and-white
Ames, Iowa — Donald Trump delivered a blistering attack on Mitt Romney’s campaign today. “I don’t know what the hell happened with his campaign,” Trump said in a speech at The Family Leader Summit. “I just don’t get it. That was an election that couldn’t have been lost.” “Every single state that they asked me to go or do some phone calls or some television, we won in the primaries,” Trump remarked. But he also criticized what the campaign had initially wanted him to say in robocalls. “They gave me this most pathetic thing to say. I said,
