WH: Obama ´Is Not Particularly
Concerned´ Whether Susan Rice
Misled the American People

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/28/2012 3:04:20 PM

In response to a question from reporter Major Garrett on whether the Obama administration´s mishandling of Benghazi raises "core questions of basic competency," press secretary Jay Carney revealed that Barack Obama "is not particularly concerned" about whether Susan Rice misled the American people: "What the president is worried about, Major, is what happened and why in Benghazi. He is not particularly concerned about whether the ambassador or I went out and talked about the fact that we believed extremists might have been responsible. And whether we named them as al Qaeda or not does not--no,

Comments:
Amazing. The neverending arrogance of 0bama is just stunning. He´s not particularly concerned about anything but himself and his abuse of power. And we get four more years of it.

Do I believe Obama said that?

Of course he did. And he probably followed it up with, "Hey, we won. We can do what we want, can´t we? Oh, the Constitution? Nevermind. We won, didn´t we? And when is my Tee time for tomorrow?"

Nor is anybody else expressing concern. What a sorry comment on our citizens. What I see as an offense worthy of execution others see as "no big deal". I suppose that is why anyone with any power seems to imagine they are above the consequences of their actions. There isn´t that much power in all the world. The Necktie Party is being organized.

Why should he worry about anytning? He could right now get away with ANYTHING and no one would want to throw him out. It is the most amazing thing I have ever heard. Chavez has nothing on him. The leader in Egypt has nothing on Obama. They are all doing what they want and there is nothing the American people can or will do about it because everyone is afraid of the man and his followers. America is over.....

Of course he isn´t concerned, it was his lie and he authorized her to tell it.

He would only be concerned if it made him look bad. Unauthorized truth that make him look bad will get him VERY concerned. Just ask any whistle-blowers from Fast and Furious.

I sure hope Rants Pants will get another turn as RNC chairman. He will know what to do about this sort of thing.

I´m not that surprised that EVERY check and balance mechanism has been neutered or circumvented. That control for responsive, LEGAL, government went out the window when the filthy politicians were able to create laws that didn´t apply to them. What should terrify every non government citizen is the fact that the Republican opposition is either blackmailed or too afraid to act on ANY of this administrations blatant crimes. ALL of this is just fine with a media that created the most bizarre President ever.

Judgment Day is going to be a real eyeopener for Obama and all his cronies!

Susan Rice sacrificed her intelligence/believeability! She will no longer be trusted/admired. She sold her soul and one day will regret it.

America has denigrated our stature in the world by the conniving and dishonesty of this administration. Sadly, we are reaping the consequences.

We still have "In God we Trust" on our money. Hold fast that reality!

We have allowed/encouraged abortions, gay rights/marriage, all against God´s Way and He will have the last word - sadly, being - Depart from Me, for I never knew you! Hell is hot and confined!

Pray for America!

Entitlents have/will continue to destroy the land we love, where many fought/died for the freedom we take for granted.

Pray for America!

Don´t let Obama and all those who bow at his throne take away what Almighty God has given US - Freedom!

This election was stolen! We will reap the consequences - again!

I still think the parents of those who died because Obama did not act immediately, should sue him and the country and let there be a free trial where "all" the evidence will be forthcoming and we, the people, will see for ourselves who is in control!

Again, pray for America! God blessed US and we took Him for granted. No more! Make a stand for righteousness!

You can bet that Obama is not going to be particularly concerned about much going forward besides his progressive agenda. He is probably laughing like hell at the Republicans, Fox News, and others who are all wound up about what Susan Rice said on those news shows, as Obama said they should come after him, as you can be sure that he either told her what to say, or someone else in his crew did, and in the end nothing is going to be done about all that. That is the way it is going to be for the next four years.

The election was stolen via voter fraud in states which do not require voter ID and in states which allow "early" (and often) voting, and through rigging of electronic voting machines, for starters.

Obama is not concerned about the deaths and torture of four white Americans, so he sends out a woman of color to lie about the Benghazi attack.

There is one reason and only one reason why no one is ever criticizing the massive incompetence of BO and his entire administration. He is black. End of discussion.

He and every one around him is the sheer proof of the utter failure of affirmative action and how totally unqualified people with no experience, knowledge or skills can achieve amazing power.

Since he knows that no one can touch him he can say to the nation "I do not give a (&(*&^ if I or any one else lied. Whatcha gonna do ´bout it? Nuttin´. ´Cause I be black."

The ME despots, tyrants, lunatics and barbarians must be in orgasmic heaven with this incompetent baffoon at the helm.

When another 9/11/2001 hits us again (and it will), he will take the position that it is the fault of the Americans and Jews.

He and his hideous wife probably danced the la la la dance on that day. You know "the most beautiful sound in the world."

all the liberal teachers, professors, writers, actors, many doctors, psychologists, social workers, engineers (even from MIT) all believe obama is great. add them to the 47% and most of the country thinks this guy is great, the country is going to be fine and all is well. in their opinion, romney would have ruined the country and was a fascist.
so the rest of us can rail all we want and it´s to the wind. stock up on food, water, medicine and get a gun. that´s what i´m doing. still in shock that romney lost. 2 lousy percent. where the hell were those 2%?

Look at all the attention paid to 2016. First, Obama is goingto get the22nd Amendment scotched-then he canrun again..
And which GOPer would you want torun against him. which would be the designated loser of that go-around.
Second The congress passed all that lousy legislation leading to the so-called fiscal cliff. One of the GOP could prepare a bill in the House to cancel or repeal it and sent it to the Senate. The Congress acts like the legisalation came from King George III and nothing they can do. Even Chief Justice Roberts told Congress to clean up their act and re-do what they don´t like, maybe he was right.

The SPLC’s Attack on Rush

PJ Media, by Ron Radosh    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/22/2014 10:01:12 PM     Post Reply
The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Iran Refuses to Pull Terrorist
Washington Free Beacon, by Adam Kredo    Original Article

Iran is insisting that the United States accept its decision to appoint a former terrorist as it representative to the United Nations, which held a closed-door meeting on Tuesday to address Tehran’s concerns over the matter. President Barack Obama signed into law last week a widely supported bill preventing countries from appointing terrorists as their U.N. ambassadors. The bill came in response to Iran’s selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its next envoy to the United Nations. The pick drew outrage on Capitol Hill and elsewhere after Aboutalibi was identified as having played a key role in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis,

At Politico Magazine, writer and physician James Hamblin tried to answer the question "Who is Dr. Ben Carson?" After describing how he became a "darling of the right-wing media" after calling out President Obama at a prayer breakfast, Hamblin tried to explain how he speaks in "over the top" language about America in decline. But Hamblin really let loose when he insisted that despite Dr. Carson´s surgical talent, his opposition to Obamacare is based on "sentiment," not a "rational pespective. His talent "does not imply an elevated or even rational perspective on health-care policy." Carson speaks from a unique position of stature

Obama’s Malaysia Trip
Includes Visit to a Mosque
Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Goodenough    Original Article

When President Obama becomes the first U.S. president to visit Malaysia in almost half a century, he will visit a prominent mosque on Sunday – but not a church, in a country where relations between the Muslim establishment and minority Christians have not always been smooth. Also, Obama’s itinerary includes a meeting with “Malaysian civil society leaders,” but according to the White House he will not meet with Anwar Ibrahim, the veteran opposition leader who since the late 1990s has been embroiled in a legal battle with the government widely viewed as a politically motivated harassment campaign.

On Monday, The Washington Post announced it had hired Philip Bump, a journalist currently at Atlantic magazine’s The Wire, to cover politics for their daily blog The Fix. The move set off a chain of congratulations from across the political press corps. But lost in the media love fest was Bump’s partisan past — a history left unspoken in either the Post’s official announcement or any of the Twitter applause. Not only does Bump’s archive at The Wire betray a palpable bias in favor of progressivism; his career as a journalist began when he headed a vicious pro-labor blog which published the names and addresses of opponents later targeted by

Secretary of State John Kerry called Earth Day today “proof that the steadfast determination of millions is powerful enough to change the course of history.” “I still remember participating in the very first Earth Day back in 1970,” Kerry said in a statement this afternoon. “It helped to unleash a wave of grassroots activism that ultimately led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and landmark laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. This Earth Day we need to consider new ways to unleash a new wave of activism to tackle today’s long list

When she was secretary of state, Hillary Clinton instituted a Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review. The first one was completed in December 2010. Nearly four years later, AP reporter Matt Lee asked State Department Jen Psaki to name one thing that Clinton’s QDDR accomplished. Just one. She can’t. LEE: “Off the top of your head, can you name one tangible achievement that the last QDDR resulted in?” PSAKI: “Well Matt, obviously it’s in an extensive, expansive process.” LEE: “So no.” PSAKI: “We’re looking at how it was done last time.” LEE: “Just one.” PSAKI: “I know, I’m making an important

U.S. military personnel has been on the ground in Yemen sifting through the aftermath of recent drone strikes, helping to retrieve bodies and data from the scene of a handful of weekend drone strikes carried out by the CIA, a source told Fox News on Tuesday. Separately, Fox News has learned that U.S. pilots provided airlift to Yemeni troops via Russian-built MI8 helicopters overnight for a separate ambush on a vehicle believed to be carrying top Al Qaeda militants. The missions follow the recent targeting of suspected terrorists in the country. On Monday, a suspected U.S. drone strike in southern Yemen killed 68 people,

President Obama vowed that the nation would be "strong right alongside" the victims of the Oso, Wash. mudslide after touring the area where a hillside gave way last month and wiped out a small neighborhood, killing at least 41 people. "The country is thinking about all of you and have been throughout this tragedy," Obama said. "We´re not going anywhere. We´ll be here as long as it takes." Obama thanked first responders, federal officials, and lawmakers, saying they have been "relentless in making sure Oso has the resources they need." And Obama said he was "inspired by the incredible way the community

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

More than 2,800 Internal Revenue Service workers who had been disciplined recently received millions of dollars in bonuses and time off as part of an employee recognition program, a new government audit shows. The IRS has a program that rewards its employees for a job well done, but a report released Tuesday by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that, between October 1, 2010, and December 31, 2012, more than 2,800 recently disciplined IRS workers got more than $2.8 million in monetary awards and more than 27,000 hours in time-off awards. The employee infractions included not paying their taxes. “While not

The self-styled “civil rights” organization Southern Poverty Law Center, which despite mounting controversy maintains some links to government agencies, released a bizarre and factually challenged screed attacking critics and opponents of the deeply controversial United Nations plot known as Agenda 21. Apparently unfamiliar with the definition of basic words such as “conspiracy” and “theory,” or with the UN plan itself, the SPLC also lashed out at “activist groups,” “mainstream politicians,” voters, “extremists,” and others who question or oppose the UN agenda for what it calls “sustainable development” in the United States.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.

Joan Eisenstodt didn´t have a stopwatch when she went to see an ear, nose and throat specialist recently, but she is certain the physician was not in the exam room with her for more than three or four minutes. "He looked up my nose, said it was inflamed, told me to see the nurse for a prescription and was gone," said the 66-year-old Washington, D.C., consultant, who was suffering from an acute sinus infection.

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections. Last week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that GOP positions on immigration were motivated by

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief
