Attorney: Benghazi Whistle-Blowers
Threatened by White House

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by Awr Hawkins

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 5/1/2013 2:54:13 AM

Victoria Toensing, Republican Counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, says her client, a State Department official now considered a whistle-blower in the investigation of the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, has been "threatened" by Obama administration officials. According to Toensing, these threats weren´t related to ambiguous matters. Rather, they were "specifically about Benghazi." She says the threats went beyond the four State Department officials who´ve currently retained counsel. "People have been threatened at the CIA" as well, she claimed. (Snip) Toensing claimed the threats relate to ending the careers of those with information about the attacks who

If true, Chicago politics will be put to the test yet again, as they seek to cover this up or poo poo it as "What Difference Does It Make?"

There is something so "Chicago Thug" about this. The problem that this administration has is now having to face is that some people simply will not be intimidated!!! Somewhere in the distance someone is getting all wee-wee´d up over this approaching train wreck!!!

I know it´s easy to play the ´what if the Bush administration did this......´, but just imagine if witnesses to a meeting of President Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld wherein the decision to go into Iraq was made . We would see plans in place for a ticker tape parade for the ´heroes´.

To not coin a phrase, don´t get your hopes up. Many times over the past 20 years, democrat scandal after democrat scandal was covered up with the help of the corrupt media who cheerfully carry the water for the democrats. When tangible evidence of threats against whistleblowers is produced that names names, I´ll sit up in my chair.

There is so much political/main stream media inbreeding that a story this hot will have to run the gauntlet to get the kind of traction that will be needed to expose this administration. Progressives haven´t gotten this close to attaining their goal to see it brought down by the deaths of four Americans. It will get ugly and very dangerous for anyone who tries to get to the bottom of this. Can we count on Republicans to stay the course and pursue this until the truth is revealed? That is the $64,000 question.

These will have to be courageous people. We have all seen the lengths to which the Democrats went to destroy descent men such as Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas, whom they felt were a proximate threat to their ideology and agenda.

These putative witnesses, if perceived to pose a similar existential threat to the most daring and successful Leftist/Marxist salient in the history of the Republic, will come under the most withering personal attacks imaginable. Their courage in coming forward is extraordinary, and they will need all the support that good citizens can give them.

God bless and God speed.

One does wonder who else is protecting obama and his groupies. Over 120 members of the House have signed on to co-author a bill of Rep Wolf, HR36, to form a ´Select Committee´ to investigate Benghazi, but the cryer speaker, Boehner, will not bring this bill to the floor. According to one of his staffers, Rick, he knows the bill will pass...........now, why won´t he bring it to the floor for a vote? Why???? Is he being blackmailed by obama for something? He sure seems to be protecting him.

When this is all sorted out, Tom Donilon will be found to have played a great part in the "damage control" lies, withholding of information, distortions. The works. It was and is his primary assignment to protect Obie from sticky international incidents. Only a little more than a week after Benghazi, this feature article on Donilon´s role as fixer appeared in the New York Times:

WASHINGTON — When President Obama flies to New York on Monday afternoon for the United Nations General Assembly, he will dispense with the usual battery of one-on-one meetings with world leaders so he can tape an appearance on “The View” and return by midweek to the battleground state of Ohio. Left to help smooth over any ruffled feathers will be Tom Donilon.

Gray-suited, meticulous and little known to the public, Mr. Donilon is the president’s national security adviser and central figure in American foreign policy, “the most important person in the mix,” according to Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. In this critical campaign season, he has also become the president’s geopolitical bodyguard, charged with keeping the world at bay for another 43 days.

Im beginning to wonder if the minor State Dept offical that testified before congress last fall (was it?) might not be one of the whistleblowers. Wasnt he one of the ones that was put on administrative leave? Not fired, but basically sent to Siberia in the State Dept. He has served under a couple administrations, and I got the feeling he knew alot more than he was able to say in those hearings.

Remember Kathleen Willey? She was threatened during the bubba clinton administration if she testified about the pervert president fondling her in the Oval Office.

This "threat" is meant to protect the demorats presidencial candidate in 2016 -- the unatttractive shrew, mrs. bubba clinton. She was the one who didn´t do her job as sec of state and our people died in Benghazi. SHE is to blame for the cover/up. SHE is the heartless shrew who tried to shut down the witnesses....

Go Victoria!!

On one of the many news websites I scanned recently there was a theory offered that the plan (US) in Bengazi was to abduct Amb. Stevens as a hostage to trade for someone "special" we´re holding; & that it got out of hand by the over zealous thugs hired to do this. That 0 needed another UBL moment to boost his ratings before the election.



The denial of assistance for our people was to faciliate this abduction & when that fell apart they couldn´t afford to have anyone find out about the CIA operation which was there providing arms to the alleged Syrian rebels. All theory/speculation but in the realm of possible vs. probable. Obviously, no-one bothered to anticipate that a loyal ex-Navy Seal would go against repeated "stand down" orders & go to the aid at the consulate & then be joined by another brave ex-Seal to fend off the later attack at the CIA compound. Regardless, I´d still like to know the who and why of the order to stand down.

the main stream media is dying! The newspapers are thinner and thinner. The people of this country support the papers with ads/purchase. We our number them.

Also, the Democrats have ruined the public education to such a degree, many graduate do not know how to read and are not interested. Recently, I encountered a chashier who could hardly make change.

The people threatened are here to be threatened because of those who gave their life to save theirs. Surely, that gift of life is worth coming forth and providing the truth out of respect for those who died.

Victoria Toensing has always been & is a constant, long-time champion of Constitutional Law and the Liberty which those principles secure equally for all in the USA. She is a patriot and a hero for Justice in the USA. IMO, she will see this 0bama/Clinton Benghazi disaster through the end, which is accountability for the American lives that were lost.

Toensing claimed the threats relate to ending the careers of those with information about the attacks who cooperate with investigators and testify.

So what? Every one of the Benghazi whistleblowers could be arrested, lined up on the White House lawn right now, live video feeds akimbo, with President Obama shooting every one of them in the head. It would NOT matter and I promise you his poll numbers would skyrocket. Anyone objecting to Obama shooting the whistleblowers in the head live on TV would be called racists and THAT would become the story, not the executions. We are in a place called the United States controlled by the votes of masses of abject morons, being taken advantage of by Saul Alinsky grads. It´s that simple. Not a thing will happen to Obama, Hillary, Holder, Kerry or anyone else in the regime, no matter if there are video pictures of Hillary ordering the deaths of the Americans in Benghazi. Three cheers for Vicky but unfortunately it´s won´t amount to any kind of justice. Truth, virtue, integrity, belief in God is gone from this government and it ain´t coming back. The Titanic´s on the bottom of the ocean and no amount of Floaties will bring it back.

Retired Admiral Lyons was on Lou Dobbs tonight. He speculated (no evidence) that either Boehner had a Petreaus-type problem and was being blackmailed OR that Boehner had been briefed on what was really going on - the transfer of weapons to Syria via Turkey, and, thus, he would be complicit. I had never thought of the second scenario.

Mickey Rooney, the pint-sized actor who was one of MGM’s giant box office attractions in the late ’30s and early ’40s, died on Sunday. He was 93. As adept at comedy as drama and an excellent singer and dancer, Rooney was regarded as the consummate entertainer. During a prolific career on stage and screen that spanned eight decades (“I’ve been working all my life, but it seems longer,” he once said), he was nominated for four Academy Awards and received two special Oscars, the Juvenile Award in 1939 (shared with Deanna Durbin) and one in 1983 for his body of work.

But so many are also mind-numbingly strange. In Florida, we do weird the way Kansas does wheat. Here, giant pet snakes escape. And breed. And then invade our national parks.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws. The President was speaking the traditional Shamrock ceremony at the White House as part of the St Patrick´s Day celebrations. The issue of immigration reform was a priority for the Irish Government delegation, led by Enda Kenny. The delegation has been lobbying in Washington during the St Patrick´s Day trip for reforms to benefit the 50,000 undocumented Irish there. President Obama said too many undocumented Irish were denied the chance to contribute to society as they were not able to pay taxes

Why discredited ‘scandals’
get less attention
MSNBC, by Steve Benen    Original Article
Posted By: ketchuplover- 3/12/2014 8:48:55 PM     Post Reply
On Fox News last night, Bill O’Reilly struggled with a question he apparently finds confusing: why aren’t major news organizations covering the IRS “scandal” to his satisfaction. Lois Lerner, the former head of the IRS’ tax exempt division, took the Fifth last week, but most of the media seemed indifferent. (Snip) That’s one possible explanation. But in the interest of giving O’Reilly and Goldberg something else to consider, there’s a more plausible, reality-based reason the media has lost interest in this scandal: there is no scandal. As we’ve discussed on more than a few occasions, the story has already been

The past two days have revealed the dangerous ramifications of the narrow-minded foreign policy elite in Washington, and a media establishment that has for so much of President Obama’s tenure accepted the statements of the administration as gospel. (Snip) If this is the sort of foreign policy anticipation that the establishment delivers, it’s little surprise that no one trusts America’s self-styled policy elites any more. They are too used to judging the world according to the patterns toward which they are already biased, as opposed to seeing it as it is.

President Obama has made liberal use of "executive action" throughout his presidency, and pledged to make even more use of executive action in this year´s State of the Union speech. He seems to think that because Republicans don´t want to implement his agenda, he can go around Congress. The Heritage Foundation is out with a new report on President Obama´s executive actions, titled "An Executive Unbound," finding that "abusive, unlawful, even potentially unconstitutional unilateral action has been a hallmark of the Obama Administration." They´ve also compiled a list of the top ten abusive executive actions taken by the President.

Darrell Issa: Emails suggest Elijah Cummings

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged
