The Absentee Commander in Chief
Wall Street Journal, by William Kristol & Peter Wehner

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/11/2013 5:23:53 AM

We´ve both had the honor to work in the White House. We´ve seen presidents, vice presidents, chiefs of staff and national security advisers during moments of international crisis. We know that in these moments human beings make mistakes. There are failures of communication and errors of judgment. Perfection certainly isn´t the standard to which policy makers should be held. But there are standards. If Americans are under attack, presidential attention must be paid. Due diligence must be demonstrated. A president must take care that his administration does everything it can do.

This president failed to do his duty. What else is new? It wasn´t the first time for Barack Obama and won´t be the last unless congress decides to do its duty and impeach him, then remove him from office.

I could imagine what was going through the minds of the two brave men trying to fight off the terrorists. At some point, they must have known that their country turned it´s back on them. What horror!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As someone so wittily but truthfully said, why should Obama help Americans in need? - after all, they aren´t his countrymen.

FTA "Not a single presidential finger was lifted to help Americans under attack."

This should be a Must Read. What was Preezy doing? Did he have to get to bed early because he was going to Vegas in the morning? Obama went beddy-byes, Americans died.

So, Obama screwed up, then lied to the American people about how he went Rambo, then bled down the clock to the election covering up his less-than-manly leadership. The answer was obvious to most engaged conservatives that there was a problem in Benghazi. The lowinfo types were angry that they might need to learn some new geographic spot, and were disturbed that all this nonsense might distract from news about how Michelle is so similar to Jacqueline Kennedy.
Lets listen to a real man who happens to be black, Dr Ben Carson. Do not be afraid to talk about this to your lowinfo neighbors.

This entire administration would have us believe that only email were received requesting additional security, backup, and plea´s for help during the Benghazi attack.

I think not.

If for no other reason than it is an excellent summary of the dereliction of duty by our so called Commander in Chief.

The twitterpated media is in large part responsible for this as they enabled this nothing of a man to jive his way into the presidency, unvetted and unknown. Combine that with an ignorant, celebrity-bewitched electorate and Chicago-land, thug politics and what a disaster.

Who would have believed that less than 10 years after 9/11, Americans would elect this nothing to the presidency. America´s enemies must be over the moon with happiness. Who would have thought it would be so easy?

From the beginning, I´ve been afraid that Obama and his goons would bring us to war. This is worse than the Neville Chamberlain period in UK history. At least back then, there was a Churchill waiting in the wings. Who does America have waiting in the wings?

I don´t know how we come out of this.

Candy Crowley is complicit.
Romney was right in the debate, Crowley cut him off at the knees publicly by agreeing with the lie Obama told about Benghazi.
Romney was too trusting, he knew Obama would lie, but didn´t expect Crowley to vocally support the lie in front of millions on live TV.
Call her in and see why she lied, Senators.

#19 I would add a few more sentences. Where was Hilary and maybe it´s time for impeachment proceedings. We do know where Obama and Hilary were for that 3 am phone call. No where to be found. I hope the next person who runs for President, and if Hilary runs, that person reminds everyone what she does for that phone call. And if Ann Crawly is there denying it, to call her on that.

Kristol and Wehner did fine until the last paragraph. They paint an accurate (and damning) picture of POTUS´s complete disregard and inaction during the Benghazi raid,then end by saying, "Is it too much to ask" that this POTUS regret his treasonous lapse, or "instruct his aides" not to let it happen again"? Really? That´s all? We´re just going to hope in this man who has given us hundreds of audacious reasons not to hope? Come on guys. Finish what you start.

The affirmative action president and his cabinet secretaries who are held to a very different standard (and much lower - practially non existent)then their predecessors, espcially those with an R after their names.

So where is the "loyal opposition" in all this? And at the end of the day, or in this case, end of the voting day last November - What difference does it make? Obama got re-elected and Hillary put herself in position for 2016.

Obama is a disgrace to the office of the Presidency. He has sown division at every opportunity. He wants us at each others throats because it keeps his base engaged. He is an agitator. He is a bully. He is a consummate liar. He is arrogant and self focused. He is totally unsuited for a position of power because he believes in any means to an end no matter what the consequences which makes him extremely dangerous. He is totally unworthy of the office he holds. He has the mindset of a community organizer, always stirring the pot, creating unrest and envy. Worst of all, he has no empathy for others and that is why he could so easily ignor Bemghazi. What President could go to bed when Americans were under fire and calling for help? And yet, the media still worships and defends him.

#27, I don´t know if that was a typo or a pun - snorting, as in cocaine?

In a sane world, congress would haul his butt up to Capital Hill and ask him point blank - where were you, what were you doing, who gave the order to stand down and why did you and your cabinet members lie to the entire world about the attack for weeks, causing riots and death in countries all over the globe? They would grill him until he broke and then suit him up in orange, handcuff him and throw him UNDER Leavenworth.

The failure suggests another, more awful possibility. The President did not want to stop the attack. The question is why. "He hates us" is not the answer. Purpose is the answer. He was willing to risk huge political embarrassment because of an overriding purpose. Likely it is because the existence of this intelligence outpost had become some sort of liability. Letting Ambassador Stevens die was worth the price of eliminating that liability. Perhaps having him die was even the purpose. The reason is yet to be discovered.

For this alone, he should be impeached.

Let us not forget that wasn´t just Obama who was MIA. The boss of those diplomats, Hillary Clinton was never heard from during the crisis. Where was she? The State department has said that they watched and were in contact with the Benghazi personnel in real time. Why was Clinton not in the loop and in contact with the WH? Why did she not contact the Pentagon for military assistance? That is dereliction of the highest order.

And as for the CIC, when sovereign America is under attack and being overrun by foreign nationals intent upon murdering our Ambassador, and that Ambassador is in real time contact and pleading for help, the CIC declines to act and then leaves the room and goes to bed, impeachment is the only recourse a responsible congress has.

If congress does not act on this obscene high crime and misdemeanor, our Republic is lost.

Is there any doubt left that president putz is merely a figurehead? He´s the big-eared face of a sham minority potus that the liberals can prance about like a cartoon character in a parade while the "man behind the curtain" writes obamacare to enrich cronies, demolishes the military, kills the economy and channels taxpayer money to liberal causes while letting the working American continue to sink into the quicksand. A more accurate question for the night of 9/11/12 was where was valerie jarrett and the old cigar smokers of the senate? Obama was doing exactly what he was supposed to do, staying out of adult business.

Stinky´s experience as a community organizer (read shakedown artist) gave him no preparation for a situation like Benghazi or any attack on our beloved nation. The night of the attack, he probably put on his bunny PJs, jumped into bed and pulled the covers over his head.

The other day, Glenn Beck expressed his take on Obama´s "absence", and I think it has some merit. The idea is that more is about to come out about that night and about the Benghazi operation as a whole, and when it does it will be so harmful to the administration that Obama would rather claim ignorance (by not being present and, therefore, unaware of what his underlings had been up to) than be exposed as being a part of the operation. In other words, his underlings will be the fall guys for all the gun-running and whatever else was going on because Obama himself was "unaware" and it was done without his approval. It must be worse than we´ve even imagined for him to rather be excoriated for being MIA than exposed as part of their sinister, treasonous Benghazi operation. Personally, I find it hard to imagine that Obama cares one whit what anyone thinks, however!

Yep, this prez should be impeached. But this congress will not go there! Congress never does it´s job anymore. They have become irrelevant!

So, impeach congress! When the new one is installed, stop all payments to congress people of the past that did not do their job.

Put your foot down people.

TREASON: Not exactly absent. Emails /witness confirm Obozo gave three stand down orders to the nearest military over 7 hours until he had murdered the 4 .. He then relieved 2 flag officers in theater (Generals) who tried to do something to help those at Benghazi... Benghazi was not a consult but a gun running CIA operation for Libya guns thru Turkey to Syria rebel terroist. Obozo wants your guns but he gives weapons to terroist.. IMPEACH

So, just where WAS he, afterall? Did anyone try to reach him again during the night? Was he in the family quarters, or ...was he somewhere else, engaged in ...?

The "mainstream" media are our mortal enemy.

Even during the Clinton years they at least covered, ever so slightly, the scandals permeating the Clinton Admin., including the infamous stained dress, although they dismissed the tawdry Monica events as "just about sex" and involving his "personal life."

Here we have four men brutally murdered. Technically, this was a terrorist attack on US soil. He flits off to Las Vegas the next day.

Where was he after 5pm 9/11?
Did they call him again? Were they AFRAID to? Why?

Why are the media so uncurious? How can they live with themselves, being such toadies, such brown-nosers?

There are some in the Senate pursuing this. And we have got to call them and encourage them.

This is not rocket science. You can look it up on wikipedia right now. Whatever Wiki´s probs they have some pretty good posts. You will find as I did,that the the ambasador "service´ andembassies wre in Tripoli. There are 70 embassies there. so why would a back-water like Benghazi have an ambassador level contact? Right there in wiki- the Transitional Council (for liberation of Libya)was there. This was the group of forces that we armed thru the UN and the NATO to fight against Kadaffi.
So when did the re-armmambent of Transitional council stop? Was Amabassador Stevens reaally in Turkey dealing with "refugees" from Syria? Why him.

Perfection certainly isn´t the standard to which policy makers should be held.

Funny, it´s the standard to which you hold all commissioned military officers regardless of their rank. Hmm, isn´t that weird?

But there are standards.

And they move wherever necessary to protect the politicians´ hairless backside.

In a crisis, the president went AWOL.

Except for one of the many times you were,including chalice-apalooza, name any time at all he has not gone AWOL.

And we learned one other thing: Messrs. Panetta and Dempsey both knew on the night of the assault that it was a terrorist attack.

So silly, so full of your elitist brilliance that your own love of yourself just oozes through the laptop screen. We Bible thumpin´, gun totin´ hicks here in flyover country KNEW it was a terrorist attack as soon as we heard about it ON 9-11-2012. And to think we figured it out without access to the geniuses you hang out with. Go figure.

I agree with poster # 28.
It was a good article until the last paragraph.
" And that he has resolved, and instructed his senior staff,
to take care that he not be derelict in his duty
as commander in chief ever again? "
This has to be sarcasm.
Obama spoke to the media at some point after the Benghazi slaughter
and his phrase that he
sprung into action
" as soon as I was made aware " immediately jumped out at me .
It seems ( until Panetta blurted the truth after
being hammered by Lindsey Graham ) that Obama was setting up his aides to take the fall for not informing him.
Let us not forget that Obama was also MIA during a domestic terror attack.
Dec 25 , 2009 a Nigerian trained by Al Queda tried to blow up a NWA airliner by igniting a bomb in his underwear.
Obama " was not made aware of this " until hours after it happened.
And then it took him a further period of time to order
any action to safeguard air travel.
And then he went to the gym-seriously.
Dec 25, 2009
" White House spokesman Bill Burton said Friday that Obama, on vacation in Hawaii,
was informed of the incident about ...three ....hours.... after.... the plane landed.
Obama.... then.... held a conference call with Homeland Security and counter-terror adviser John Brennan
and NSC chief of staff Denis McDonough.
Burton said that in a..... subsequent........ call,
Obama “instructed that all appropriate measures be taken to increase security for air travel.”

New grand jury expected to be seated
in Gov. Rick Perry´s ethics case
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/15/2014 1:18:20 PM     Post Reply
AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

The Pulitzer Prize board has just managed to do the impossible.

The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

Here’s the good news for those of us hoping to determine whether Democrats or Republicans will be celebrating in the fall: From early May to early September, we’ll have a steady stream of conventions, primaries and runoffs to keep us busy.

Over 80 members of the Brandeis University faculty sent a letter to the school’s president earlier this month, demanding the school withdraw its honorary degree invitation to women’s rights activist and critic of Islam Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Brandeis rescinded the invitation to Hirsi Ali last week, prompting a public backlash from Hirsi Ali’s supporters. In the April 6 letter, faculty members called on Brandeis President Fred Lawrence to drop Hirsi Ali from the ceremony because of comments she has made about her opposition to Islam. “We are writing to urge you to rescind immediately the invitation to Ms. Ayaan Hirsi

Bad as Obama’s poll numbers are, they bode worse for Congressional Democrats. Obama is being buoyed by continued strong support from Democrat voters. The problem for Congressional Democrats is that November’s election outcome will not be determined in Democrat strongholds. Recent Quinnipiac polling data (released April 2, of 1,578 registered voters nationwide, with a MOE of +/-2.5%) showed the president with a deeply negative rating on his handling of the economy: 40% approval and 55% disapproval. In his sixth year in office, and the fifth year after the recession, 74% of respondents still rated the economy as “not so good” to

Ms. Burwell spent a little more than a year running Wal-Mart’s foundation before President Obama tapped her to be his budget chief last year — and then last week asked her to take over as health and human services secretary.

The Supreme Court has made pretty clear that putting your money where your mouth is deserves broad protection as a form of free political speech. The justices are about to consider whether outright lying in a campaign deserves a similar First Amendment shield. The court’s recent decisions easing the flow of generous campaign contributions already shifted the electoral landscape. If the court finds that even the most patently outrageous statements about candidates may not be barred by law, those two decisions combined could expand the rhetorical battlefield of the midterm elections and raise the attack ad volume as never before.

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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

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.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

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.
