America in the Age of Obama
PJ Media, by Richard Fernandez

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/16/2012 5:03:32 AM

Breitbart quotes a tweet by CNN correspondent Frances Townsend claiming information by Pentagon correspondent Barbara Starr that David Petraeus will testify that he knew the attack on the Benghazi consulate was terrorism “almost immediately.” The “same source” claims he will say Susan Rice’s talking points ascribing the attack to a video came from the White House. If Petraeus really does testify to this effect, he will inescapably be alleging under oath that the president was a liar. Even if the testimony is restricted strictly to Benghazi and not its aftermath, the crucial question remains: did the president abandon?

Just so everyone is clear about the Democrats´ intentions:

When America elects a credible commander in chief who acts as a responsible commander in chief, the Democrats ridicule, demonize and try to bring him down, to the advantage of our enemies (think Reagan, George W Bush). But when America elects an entirely non-credible commander in chief who acts irresponsibly as commander in chief, the Democrats prop him up by any means necessary (think Carter, Clinton, Obama).

It should be crystal clear, that in fact the Democrats do not want a credible, responsible commander in chief who acts in the best interests of the nation. Quite the opposite.

Before he gets on any planes, I hope Petraeus leaves notarized copies of the real story with a few people who won´t be bought off.
.... As for Hillary, apparently the run-and-hide bit isn´t going to work. I heard last evening that she, too, will testify. Will she repeat her infamous testimony of yesteryear by telling Congress that she ´can´t recall´ the incident?

I must admit that I have little faith that any of this testimony will take place .... unless the video footage becomes a blue dress. Videos such as this usually get ´lost in the fire´ or simply disappear.

Well, the President IS a liar. And the simplest and most effective way to say that is not to speak it but to show those real-time videos of the ambassador being dragged out of the consulate. If that had been done before the election, President Romney would be being sworn in this January.

No, those weasels hid the evidence and got their co-conspirator press corpse to help them evade any discussion of their lies just long enough to run out the clock and allow Obama to remain in power. Now, he and they believe he´s untouchable.

Let ´s see how untouchable he is. Show the video.

Does anyone who reads Lucianne really expect anyone testifying in Washington, DC to ever tell the truth?

Is there any honest person serving us in DC?

Today, I truly doubt it. They all seem to avoid, skirt around, and purposely deceive in order to ride a fence.

Disgusting are they all.

I don´t think it will really matter WHAT obama is or does as long as certain people get their stuff. Same goes for the dem party. Along with the U.S. Constitution, they seem to have pretty well jettisoned the Ten Commandments and every other law of a civilized nation.

If Gen. Petraeus hasn´t figured it out yet, this hearing today is where he´ll get his reputation back.

Then the inevitable ´´were you lying then? or are you lying now?´´ questions come up, all he has to do is tell the committee who came up with the video story. (And that line sounds exactly like a Hillary thing. Let´s not lose sight of the Huma factor in all Hillary does.)

I still smell set-up in this entire event, from before what is known, to this nanosecond. But who was (is?) being set up? Deep into the bowels, we go.

Despite Petraeus´ stupid indiscretion (of the what could you possibly been thinking variety), as a military leader he put his men first.

I truly hope he ends his career with the honor he has shown during that career, not this one. This administration MUST be exposed for what it is, criminal. Four men were left to die, begging for help, while Washington watched it in real time.

As for the FBI´s "recovery" of classified documents in the woman´s home, in the age of the Obama Justice Department, the words "planting of evidence" is not out of the question. I trust nothing they do.

I hope Petraeus does the right thing.

Forty years ago we learned everything we needed to know about that third-rate burglary known as Watergate and Nixon resigned over it´s cover-up.
But that was America forty years ago.
Moral relativism and political correctness have combined with rampant gimme,gimme-ism today and it wouldn´t matter if Obama killed Ambassador Stevens himself - this will all come to nothing. He is beyond teflon. Obama is untouchable. The media is beyond incurious. They cover for him.
So this is what it feels like to live in a banana republic under a tinpot dictator.

Right now, Petraeus is the only one in a position to bring Obama´s reign of terror to a stop before it gets gulag ugly.

So it´s gut check time for Petraeus. Is he a standup guy willing to temporarily forget about his own hide and tell the truth for the sake of his country, or is he a butt-covering uniformed version of Hillary Clinton?

the reason the libbies don´t want a responsible commander/in/chief --- IS (thank you bubba clinton) --- they are under the direction of SOROS. SOROS´ game is to do to America what he did to England with the collapse of the pound. He made a killing in England financially and now he´s pulling all the money out of America --- SO -- what´s his game plan?

WORLD ORDER.........

Hence the "taking" down of American pride and freedom...

SOROS wants serfs to do his business. He´s sitting on piles of English and American money.

#6 sums it up for me. Furthermore, now that missiles are being lobbed into Tel Aviv since Hamas has been given the ´green light´ with the re-election of urkel, expect Petraeus/Benghazi/Amb. Stevens, Doherty, Smith and Woods to slip right off the radar of the American psyché. I imagine all the free 0bamaphones will be lit up calling each other to find out the latest on honey-boo-boo, jay-z and schnookie.

FTA: "When pressed to identify who came up with the infamous “Mohammed video” talking points, neither Clapper nor Morell could recall the person responsible."

Perhaps they can´t remember BECAUSE the introduction of the talking points was carefully scripted and managed to PREVENT identification of their source, BECAUSE the "´Mohammed video´ talking points" were a prepackaged narrative, in the can and ready to roll out on 9/11, BECAUSE the administration knew beforehand that there would be 9/11 demonstrations in Cairo and set up a false narrative like the "war on women" designed to link American Christians and by extension Romney and Republicans to the video and to middle east unrest. Might as well subtitle the whole thing "Mitt Romney - Dangerous American Christian."

Remember - the American embassy in Cairo put out its apology half a day before the "spontaneous" demonstrations even began. Will someone on one of these committees please call to testify under oath the person from the Cairo embassy who issued that premature apology? Please.

Just the SOS for obama. The America hating , bent on destroying the responsible hard working business and citizens president. Nothing happened with Fast and Furious and Nothing will happen with Benghazi because the left has the press propaganda machine and the right are afraid of it. The war for America is lost to the antiAmerican hatred from obama and the compliance of the sanctimonious idiots and greedy worthless who voted for him. The last stand is with the states and if those governors go along with raising taxes, as I read this morning, then we are finished economically and defensively.

All due respect to my fellow L-Dotr´s, but the well-bent General Petraeus is not very likely to stand up and save the country.
His wife has a fantastic Federal sinecure, with a huge pension down the road.
The General, even though currently out of a job, also has a huge golden parachute of a federal pension waiting for himself.
Blessed Hussein will be President for four more years.

You think Petraeus will suddenly develop scruples which will endanger all of this?
If so, I have some lovely swampland, I mean lakeshore property, in Northern Minnesota for sale.

The ´You Tube Made ´Em Do It´ excuse was no doubt set up by the Obama White House to play the stall until after the Election. Pure and simple.

9/11/12 caught the Obamunists with their panties at their knees.

The Constitution is scotched. We just can´t believe it has come to that.
Well, It has come to that.

I read that 80% of the US population has been born since the Shuttle Challenger blew up. That is 1986. So few remember the USA of our parent sand grandparents lives. Looking back on Reagan is like the people of Reagans´s time looking back on Truman.
It is just time passing and numbers of people. (for me, I add there was an awful lot of Abortion too- 40 million, maybe more)
The schools I was told do not teach any history befor about 1880. I can´t find any teachers yet that can confirm that. But all this does explain why people are morons about this guy, Obama.

Agree with posters who believe this will have little to no affect on Obama.

Enough Americans spoke last Tuesday and all they care about is their free cheese, phones, birth control, etc. The reputation of this country, our standing in the world, etc means nothing to them. If they even think about it - they think the US has it coming. We´re all one world now. gag

This country is not the same it was in 1973 during Watergate. And there appears to be not enough of us who do care to effect anything.

Romney was correct - Obama bought his victory with gifts at our expense; financially and morally.

Let´s save some time, and find out now, that the President, with Hillary and Susan Ricearoni, were inciting belief in their video, to hide the reason for the attack.
They made the spark, the stupid video, and then they blew on it for weeks, hoping to get ignition in the form of riots in the ME.
The attack was to end the buy back program of Gadaffi´ s stinger missiles and other worthwhile weapons to be acquired suddenly, by Obama´´s jihadists. by removing all security. The Navy SEALs were told to stand down while the hit on the bag man was carried out. It was supposed to be too late within the first hour of the attack. Chris Stephens friendship with the two SEALs was unplanned, and complicted the overthrow of the compound and the wearhouse full of weapons. We bought them back from the holders, gave them big bucks, then permitted the lot to be stolen. They will be used to attack Obama´s/muslim enemy, Israel. Fast and Furious II.

What I worry about is that Obama might be President for MORE than 2 terms.

Remember O´s admiration of Hugo Chavez, muzzled press (not the MSM, but US), and his nationalization of multiple industries.

If given the chance, O would no doubt try for a 3rd term - rationale being that FDR did it, and if we don´t let him do it, we´re being racists. (Never mind that the 2-term limit Amendment wasn´t passed when FDR was alive).

Set a trap, catch ALL the DDC commies (also known as demorats) and then release spring the spring. Not only does the hero catch the Reds in DC, he succeeds in revealing the MFM for what they have become....the machine for the Regime and the party....and that is NOT our father´s Democrat Party.

A Tale of Two Letters: Why the
Peace Process Went Poof
Commentary Magazine, by Rich Richman    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/13/2014 5:46:11 PM     Post Reply
Last week Zbigniew Brzezinski, joined by five other foreign-policy experts from the past, issued an open letter entitled “Stand Firm, John Kerry,” calling for “clarity” on “the critical moral and political issues” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The letter castigated Israeli settlements and proposed “halting the diplomatic process” to “help stop this activity.” At “Pressure Points,” Elliott Abrams dismantled the letter, noting that, among other things, it ignored history. As it happens, tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of one of the more important items of history the Brzezinski group ignored: the April 14, 2004 letter from President George W. Bush to Prime

Nevada GOP removes social issues from platform,
moves ahead with pre-primary endorsements

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

Generally, when we hear stories about the federal government ripping off the businessman, we tend to think of tales of tax increases or burdensome regulations. But a different type of story crosses our desk this weekend, as a solar power consortium – who already received a quarter billion in grants and tax incentives – takes Uncle Sam to the courthouse because they feel they should have gotten millions more. Federal investigators will spend the next year going through the books of two solar-energy companies tied to billionaire Elon Musk in an effort to show the businesses overvalued sales contracts in

EARLIER this year, a column by a Harvard undergraduate named Sandra Y. L. Korn briefly achieved escape velocity from the Ivy League bubble, thanks to its daring view of how universities should approach academic freedom. Korn proposed that such freedom was dated and destructive, and that a doctrine of “academic justice” should prevail instead. No more, she wrote, should Harvard permit its faculty to engage in “research promoting or justifying oppression” or produce work tainted by “racism, sexism, and heterosexism.” Instead, academic culture should conform to left-wing ideas of the good, beautiful and true, and decline as a matter of

IN THE WORLD of early-20th-century African-American music and people obsessed by it, who can appear from one angle like a clique of pale and misanthropic scholar-gatherers and from another like a sizable chunk of the human population, there exist no ghosts more vexing than a couple of women identified on three ultrarare records made in 1930 and ’31 as Elvie Thomas and Geeshie Wiley. There are musicians as obscure as Wiley and Thomas, and musicians as great, but in none does the Venn diagram of greatness and lostness reveal such vast and bewildering co-extent. In the spring of 1930, in

There’s something sinister on the airwaves. It’s sloppy, and it’s cynical, but sinister all the same, and it’s race-hate spewing from the absolute top of the Democratic Party. On Wednesday afternoon, Attorney General Eric Holder threw out some thinly veiled race-hate, telling an audience that criticism of his contempt for Congress was “unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity” that no other “attorney general has ever had to deal with.” ["Black vote," check.] That same day, Politico published an interview where House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi more openly stoked race-hate, saying conservative opposition to amnesty “has a scent of Japanese internment.” ["Asian vote," check.] Later that

WASHINGTON - The White House said on Saturday that Vice President Joe Biden would travel to Kiev this month to show support for the Ukrainian government as U.S. officials expressed new concern over "violence and sabotage" by militants it said were apparently supported by Russia in eastern Ukraine. Biden, set to travel to Kiev on April 22, will become the most senior U.S. official to visit the country since the crisis began there. Secretary of State John Kerry spoke by telephone with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the State Department said. Kerry during the call "expressed strong concern that attacks today by armed

North Carolina answers Democrats’
question ‘What vote fraud?

It’s an article of the faith of the Democrats that voter fraud is nothing to worry about because it never happens. Kim Strach, the North Carolina director of elections, has living proof — and some dead proof — otherwise. She has identified 35,750 persons who voted in North Carolina sharing a name, birth date and Social Security number with someone who voted in another state in 2012. Another 81 North Carolinians voted after they died. Ghosts have no constitutional rights, not yet, but Barack Obama and the Democrats think rigor mortis need not keep voters from practicing good citizenship. President Obama nevertheless

ABC Apologizes for Story That Connected

ABC News Vice President Jeffrey Schneider has apologized for a story on his network that connected a CEO who supports traditional marriage to the Westboro Baptist Church and their offensive "God hates f**s" signs. Mr. Schneider contacted the Media Research Center on Thursday after our social media department requested members call and complain about the comparison. Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich was ousted earlier this month when it was revealed that he donated $1000 in 2008 to Proposition 8. As Good Morning America reporter Linzie Janis explained the story on April 4, footage of the completely unrelated Westboro protesters holding "soldiers died

For Attorney General Eric Holder,
Justice is for Democrats only

A veteran Justice Department lawyer says that Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the department in a way he hadn’t seen before. In short, “Holder is the worst person to hold the position of attorney general since the disgraced John Mitchell.” Now in his sixth year as attorney general, Holder has increasingly tilted the department in an ideological direction. It’s one thing to emphasize President Obama’s legal priorities. It’s quite another to decide not to enforce certain federal laws — such as the ban on marijuana — or urge state attorney generals to refuse to defend local laws on same-sex

Retired U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens had an op-ed piece in the Washington Post a couple of days ago that still has my brain doing backflips. He claims that, “Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the wisdom of such rules and to evaluate the costs and benefits that rule changes can be expected to produce.” Stevens certainly did not believe this when he signed onto decisions overturning Texas’s sodomy law, or when arguing that state laws limiting abortion were unconstitutional, or when striking down Louisiana’s death penalty for raping a child (this is

Students are fed up with the meager portion sizes and bland taste of Michelle Obama-mandated school lunches. They’ve stunned their parents and the rest of America with pictures like this:(Snip for photos and tweets)Now, some Texas teens are taking it a step further. The students, who are part of their high school’s Turning Point USA chapter, are launching a #LunchMovement with one simple message: “No More, Mrs. Obama.” The Healthy, Hunger-free Kids Act has been in effect for a few years now. Yet, it seems to have done just the opposite of its stated intent. Kids aren’t getting enough to eat

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

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

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
