Breitbart Big Peace, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/27/2012 11:17:33 PM

Following on their meeting with UN Ambassador Susan Rice, Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), John McCain (R-AZ), and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) released a statement bashing her performance and stating that President Obama had serious questions to answer about Rice’s statements in the aftermath of the Benghazi terrorist attacks that resulted in the deaths of four Americans. The text of the statement: We respectfully disagree with the White House’s statement today that ‘there are no unanswered questions’ about Ambassador Rice’s September 16 Sunday show appearances and the talking points she used.

YOU! have not asked obama where he was!
You! know he was the one to stop the rescue!

McCain and Graham... ask him directly or if he refuses to meet then ask publicly.

You won´t because you are helping with the coverup. You are just like David Petraeus.

We have three stories now. Clapper, the FBI and the CIA did it. Meanwhile the locus in quo has never been properly investigated. The administration won´t release the photo´s of the situation room. If we knew who was there and who wasn´t it would be invaluable. There would be liaison officers present representing various agencies, it would be nice to talk to them. And the purported terrorist mastermind is sitting in a downtown Benghazi hotel sipping Orange frappes without a care in the world. Mindboggling.

Nothing is going to come of this. America is not the country it once was that held people accountable for their actions, including the president and his administration. This is the most corrupt administration in the history of America.

Why was Obama running missiles and armaments through Turkey as a conduit and into Syria ???


Why was the Turkish counsel there in Benghazi???


30,000 Missing missiles and Manpads launchers,,,WHY??? Is this Fast and Furious II Missile Running??? Why was the KNOWN Arms Dealer ship at Benghazi´s port??? This is traitorous SEDITION is the president is arms running...And if to as thought an enemy, Al Qaeda, of the USA?? We have a traitor in the WH...


Ambassador Stevens was raped as reported because the USA stood by and let our supported rebel forces rape Kaddaffi...PAYBACK by Russia...

Republicans need to do a Google search on the meaning of beating a dead horse..Getting the truth on Benghazi or spending cuts in the fiscal cliff are two big examples. Obama won with both these issues on the political map,meaning people don´t care about either.

Why is consumer confidence suddenly at a 5 year high? Supposedly it´s because the jobs picture is getting brighter.Sorry but I don´t buy that explanation,it´s pure propaganda to convince people the economy is getting better.We´re still seeing 365-400,000 people getting pink slips a week.

If consumer confidence is getting better,it has to be among Obama voters who see no interruption in their flow of government benefits.

If the jobs picture is getting brighter as this conclusion purports,then why are left wing groups clamoring for more unemployment extensions?

I think Zippy has as much as admitted he is the culprit.

Please recall his words at that press conference:
“If Senator McCain and Senator Graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me.”

What we took for an inappropriately chivalrous riding-to-the-rescue may well have been the admission that he scrubbed the talking points Rice "presented" on those 5 Sunday shows.

We got all distracted by the inappropriateness of his tone that we weren´t listening to his words.

As for where Zip was during the firefight in Benghazi, I maintain that happy hour that evening got a little too happy. The ship of state was without a captain.

An honest and forthright (I can dream) senator---as opposed to the preening McVain or the rookie being told not to spoil her political future---would tell the American people that the story being told re: Benghazi is a tissue of lies; and that O´s administration is a house of cards, a den of thieves and a nest of traitors.

Look, I hate to be this way, but the only way to get this country to begin to care about Benghazi is to have all four families call a news conference and demand Obama come clean. Without that, nothing will happen. Zip. Zero. Nada.

It is shocking that there is not ONE moral member in Congress of the democrat persuasion.
If I was a loved one of one of the victims, I would be out there talking to anyone who would listen. I know they have broken hearts, but I would want to expose those who allowed him to die and refused to send help. I would take this battle on, for the HONOR of my loved one, and the HONOR of my country. They died for it, was it in vain?

I don´t see this as throwing in the towel YET! They are soft as Charmin, but they have no backing by the MSM or the courts and must tread softly. I´m not sure these "investigators(?)" are smart enough to have laid down a long term plan, but if they keep the pressure on, eventually the truth will come out and hussein will be Nixon II.

We hear about the four Americans killed on a daily basis which was due to a most despicable act of cowardice by the CIC, or was it? But these deaths go far beyond the deaths of four Americans. There were thirty or more others that this administration was willing to sacrifice, or maybe did sacrifice. What happened to them. Did they even get out and if so how? Where are they and why haven´t these "investigators(?)" gone looking for their testimony.

To even consider that OUR Nobel winning commander in chief (far from it in reality) was willing to throw almost forty Americans on the pyre of self-agrandizement is beyond comprehension except within the framework of "siding with the muslims." He´s proven he´s not only willing but has in fact has done so with Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, and now Gaza and Syria. He needs to be holed up in Gitmo with no chance of legal representation.

He IS a traitor!(IS needs no clarification.)

I doubt we will ever know all there is to know about this, about F & F, about all the capers of this most corrupt and reckless Administration in the history of the world.

And I think we are whistling Dixie if we honestly expect anyone in our government to even attempt to get to the bottom of it. They are great at kicking the can and doing photo ops, and are worthless to America and to the American people.

Neither do I think it is important to know WHY the Benghazi slaughter was deliberately allowed to happen. It was preventable, yet it happened. That´s all we need to know really.

What I DO think is important is that we get this poseur out of office, start hanging some people out to dry, and that includes incompetent and worthless Republicans as well as ALL the Democrats in office.

Officials prefer to just move along rather than get entangled in real problems. If we want solutions, we had best look to ourselves for those solutions as they will come from no other place.

I suggest we de-fund our worthless, but very dangerous federal government. It has bankrupted the nation, is responsible for countless deaths, has removed more freedoms than most people even realized they had.

The buggy whip wore out its welcome and necessity, and so has the US government. If we people are too helpless to manage our own lives then let the states look after us - NOT the US government.

A LARGE segment of the American public are beginning to seriously upset me.

Exactly #10. There was no consulate in Benghazi, it was a CIA operational headquarters to move Libyan weapons to Al Qaida. Which was to be move said weapons to Syria. Russia put a hit on the Benghazi operation. Thus dead CIA Seals and an ambassador. And of course now the cover up for weapons running to terrorists.

#10 thanks for the Canada Free Press article. Why is it that we have to read the truth from papers and websites not in the USA? I think Doug Hagmann has asked questions which finally are getting to the bottom of what/why Benghazi happened.

Regardless, though, the fact that four Americans were murdered when all it would have taken to save them would have been to deploy our own nearby forces. Obama and his administration are guilty as hell of treason and murder - aka "high crimes and misdemeanors". Can anyone say Impeachment time?

Obama won´t answer any questions about anything. They will have to get to the truth without him. However, we all know the truth. It was Obama that gave the stand down order. It was Obama that let his employees die because of his failed Middle East policy. Hillary won´t tell the truth either. It will be a slow process, but we will find someone that will talk.

New figures by the Congressional Budget Office released on Monday reveal that over the next 10 years the U.S. debt-to-GDP ratio will double to 78%. Over the last four decades America´s average debt-to-GDP ratio was 39%. At the end of 2007, federal debt was just 35% of GDP. The CBO report says gross federal debt will soar from $17.7 trillion to $27 trillion over the next ten years. CBO warned of the dire consequences the nation´s debt will have if gone unchecked. "Such high and rising debt would have serious negative consequences," says the report. "Federal spending on interest payments

Snider’s Superfoods, family owned and operated since 1946, says that they will not be hiring any new baggers or cashiers in order to avoid the 50 worker threshold, which under the new Obamacare stipulations, would require that they provide health insurance if they employ 50 or more full time workers.

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder ordered a Justice Department investigation Monday into whether federal hate crimes were committed in shootings at two Jewish facilities in Overland Park, Kan., that killed three people. In a statement, Holder said he has instructed the department to provide all available support to state and local authorities to determine whether the shootings outside Kansas City over the weekend broke federal hate crimes law. The attorney general said the senseless acts of violence are all the more heartbreaking because they were carried out on the eve of Passover. Holder said the Justice Department will do

A U.S. military official says 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. The official says the fighter flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level, saying this prompted ship commanders to issue several radio warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and the passes ended without incident. The USS Donald Cook was operating in international waters east of Romania. It was deployed to the Black Sea April 10th,

AUGUSTA, Ga.— The Masters will distribute a record $9 million in prize money. The tournament announced the disbursement Sunday, a few hours before the final round ended at Augusta National. The winner will get $1.62 million, up from $1.44 million in 2013. Second place will pay $972,000, up from $864,000 a year ago. The Masters doled out $8.102 million in 2013.

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

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. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

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

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

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

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

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

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.

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive
