Carney: Benghazi Happened
A Long Time Ago

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/1/2013 2:58:41 PM

White House spokesman Jay Carney denied Benghazi whistleblowers have been denied access to testifying. On Monday, Fox News reported at least four officials within the State Department, and CIA have retained lawyers to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress. Several of the whistleblowers claim they have been threatened by unnamed Obama admin officials to not testify.

Comments:
I look forward to the day this liar and the rest of his comrades in the regime are brought down. Of course I didn´t see any response to that blatant lie from the lapdogs in the media. He most likely would have avoided at all costs calling on Ed Henry. This is the entire article.

How dare this administration treat the death of four men as "old news" and as obama said "bumps in the road". What arrogant sobs. I hope that Rep. Gowdy is right when he says these hearings will be explosive. When the "elites" think that four people can be murdered and we are to simply sweep them aside . . . well, it is just pathetic. These are not the people I want leading our country but we are stuck with them for now. From poor aborted babies to Benghazi they have a very low opinion of life.

At least Carney is consistent. Obama´s promise that OCare would reduce average familyre premiums by $2,500 per year occurred 2010. His promise to close Gitmo In 2009. His promise to reduce deficits and not raise taxes happened in 2008. Just as his law and college transcripts and his state senate records happened a long time ago. If only Obama never happened in 2008.

Yes, this was the Clintoon´s strategy, stall, stall, stall on the white stuff on the blue dress, and then after a time they would just say, "There is nothing new here, just old news." The American people have not heard what really happened in Benghazi, and if there really are threats to people who know what happened, they need to be made out as heros for coming forward. I think both Hillary and 0bama know they are at fault for the deaths of these four Americans who were murdered at Behghazi. Carney is a fool, and he can keep the spin of "happened a long time ago," but America should know the truth .... even now.

How dare this smirky little pipsqueak respond to Ed Henry saying ´Benghazi happened a long time ago´. Hey Carney, September 2012 wasn´t that long ago and we´re still waiting for answers.

As earlier poster commented, Gibbs was awful, but this character is much worse.

1) "Happened a long time ago..." G W Bush happened an even longer time ago, but these shysters are still trying to blame him for their ineptitude.

2) "We are unaware of any agency..." Parse it. He really means the alleged threats are coming from individuals via White House orders, rather than as an official "agency"-sanctioned threat.

He´s lying, but as we know Libs can rationalize even the meaning of "is."

America is the laughing stock of the World.
We have a president who sounds like he just stepped out of the ghetto, and spokespeople
who prove their stupidity everytime they open their mouths.
Golf and rubbing elbows with so-called entertainers and spending other peoples´ money are Obama´s forte.

A long time ago?

GWB´s Air National Guard service record was "a long time ago" when the the Dems went out to smear him.

Romney´s dog on car roof episode was "a long time ago" as was his supposed bullying of a gay kid in high school when the Dems played it up.

Should we now also forget that Obama was not natural born in the USA and eligible to be president because he was born "a long time ago"?

Two of the men murdered were Ex-Seals, the former USAF man was from the "quiet" part of that service. These men are bound to have friends of which many are known for long memories and fierce royalty their fellow members. They are also known for not being afraid and shy.

This thing should stay in play until some conclusion is reached.

It´s been a long time since anything resembling the truth has crossed his lips.

I cannot help but wonder how he can look in the mirror, live with himself, sleep at night, or take himself seriously when at least half the nation is laughing at him openly. Secretly, maybe even more.

He is used by the administration, and by all appearances, he LIKES it. Now, if that doesn´t just wierd you out...

The two agencies he denies have received requests are State and Defense. This conveniently leaves out CIA which would be the agency whose employees would most likely need approval to make a statement. You know they will ultimately lie, but want to drag things out in the meantime.

Is it enough? Obama imposes sanctions
on Russian officials over Crimea
Fox News & Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/17/2014 12:12:28 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON – Faced with calls for a swift and stern reaction to Russia´s threatened annexation of Crimea, President Obama wielded his executive pen Monday morning, slapping seven in Vladimir Putin´s inner circle -- but not the Russian president himself -- with sanctions freezing their U.S. assets. But almost immediately, some criticized Obama´s response as not being enough to change Putin´s course. With Crimea voting Sunday to break off from Ukraine, Russia is poised to potentially annex the disputed peninsula -- and freezing U.S. assets of Putin cronies and barring them from traveling to the U.S. may have limited effect. Four Ukrainians

Colts owner James Irsay faces four felony counts after being arrested Sunday night by Carmel police on preliminary charges of driving under the influence and possession of a controlled substance, police said. Irsay drove a late-model silver Toyota Highlander at a slow rate of speed, stopped in the roadway and failed to signal a turn before police stopped him, Lt. Joe Bickel of the Carmel Police Department said in a release. "During the course of the investigation, Irsay subsequently failed several roadside field sobriety tests," Bickel said. In an inventory of Irsay´s vehicle, "multiple prescription drugs were discovered in pill bottles," police

Thanks to Obamacare, Democrats just lost a special election in a Florida House district that President Obama won in 2012. So what do you think vulnerable Democrats in states and districts Obama lost in 2012 are thinking today? The problem is Democrats can’t run from Obama or Obamacare. Yes, the president is electoral kryptonite in 2014. But Democrats are caught in the Obama trap — unable to either embrace or repudiate their unpopular president and his unpopular health law. This is precisely the position vulnerable Republicans were in during the 2006 midterm elections, when Democrats retook control of Congress thanks to George W. Bush’s sinking poll numbers. Like

WASHINGTON – DEVELOPING ... President Obama said Monday that Crimea´s vote in favor of joining Russia will not be recognized by the international community, as his administration sanctioned top Russian officials over Sunday´s referendum. "We´re making it clear that there are consequences for their actions," Obama said in the White House briefing room.

After a facing a bruising defeat over President Obama´s pick for a key Justice Department post this month, the White House is carefully weighing how to move forward with the president´s pick for surgeon general. The nomination has drawn heckles from gun rights advocates. A senior administration official, who requested anonymity to talk about White House strategy on the nomination, stressed that the White House hasn´t given up on confirming Vivek Murthy, who is perhaps best known for founding Doctors for America, a group that campaigned for Obama´s health care law.

President Obama in a telephone call with Russian President Vladimir Putin told the leader that western nations were “prepared to impose additional costs on Russia” after Putin endorsed a referendum Sunday in which Crimea chose to secede from Ukraine. Obama told Putin that the Crimea vote -- more than 95 percent favored joining Russia -- “violates the Ukrainian constitution and occurred under duress of Russian military intervention,” according to a White House readout of the call. “President Obama reiterated that a diplomatic resolution cannot be achieved while Russian military forces continue their incursions into Ukrainian territory and that the large-scale Russian

Police are investigating the possibility that the pilot of missing Flight MH370 hijacked his own aircraft in a bizarre political protest. The Mail on Sunday has learned that Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah was an ‘obsessive’ supporter of Malaysia’s opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim. And hours before the doomed flight left Kuala Lumpur it is understood 53-year-old Shah attended a controversial trial in which Ibrahim was jailed for five years. Campaigners say the politician, the key challenger to Malaysia’s ruling party, was the victim of a long-running smear campaign and had faced trumped-up charges. Police sources have confirmed that Shah was a vocal political activist

By now it’s settled on most people, including Democrats, that the loss of Alex Sink to David Jolly in Florida’s 13th Congressional District was, in the words of the New York Times, “devastating” to Democrats. It’s a district Ms. Sink carried in her unsuccessful race for governor against Rick Scott, a district that Barack Obama carried in his two elections, and a district that demographically now favors Democrats. In addition, Ms. Sink raised more money and ran a better campaign than Jolly. Even Bill Clinton lent his efforts to her campaign. And yet she lost. What should particularly alarm Democrats is

It’s been less than six months since Bret Stephens used a version of this headline, but four events in the last week have caused it to scream in my mind. Before I get into those four events, let me say that I understand the only way to stay remotely sane in Washington, D.C., is to ignore 85 percent of whatever is trending at any given moment. That said, there are times anyone less isolated than a Carthusian monk is unavoidably exposed to “news” that 25 years ago would be considered fit only for National Enquirer.

The Rev. Fred Phelps Sr., founder of the hate-fueled Westboro Baptist Church, is at “the edge of death,” his son reports. Nathan Phelps, who fled the infamous Kansas church more than 30 years ago, claims his notorious father was kicked out of the congregation he built and is now spending his final days in hospice care. “I´ve learned that my father, Fred Phelps, Sr., pastor of the "God Hates (deleted to clear site filter)" Westboro Baptist Church, was ex-communicated from the ‘church’ back in August of 2013,” Nathan Phelps wrote on Facebook. “He is now on the edge of death at

As the search for the missing flight MH370 enters its 10th day with few clues as to its whereabouts, the New Straits Times said today the Boeing 777-200ER dropped 5,000 feet (1,500m) to evade commercial radar detection. In an exclusive story, the government-backed paper said investigators analysing MH370’s flight data revealed that the 200-tonne, fully laden twinjet descended 1,500m or even lower to evade commercial (secondary) radar coverage after it turned back from its flight path en route to Beijing. (Snip) Investigators poring over MH370’s flight data had said the plane had flown low and used “terrain masking” as it

A top Republican campaigning for immigration reform is warning that America needs at least 1 million more immigrants every year just for basic farming and construction jobs, not ban like some in the party are advocating. Carlos Gutierrez, Commerce secretary under former President George W. Bush, said that without more immigrants, businesses won´t be able to grow because there aren´t enough workers available. And helping them could boost the Republican Party, added the former Kellogg Co. executive. Speaking at a Republican confab, he said that comprehensive immigration reform passed in the Senate and rejected by

BOSTON- Boston´s Irish-American mayor will not march in the city´s St. Patrick´s Day parade on Sunday after failing to hammer out a deal with organizers to allow a group of gay and lesbian activists to march openly. Mayor Marty Walsh had tried to negotiate a deal with organizers, the conservative Allied War Veteran´s Council, to allow members of MassEquality, one of Massachusetts´ largest gay activist groups, to join the parade. "So much of our Irish history has been shaped by the fight against oppression," Walsh, the city´s first Irish-American mayor in 20 years, said in a statement. "As mayor of

They were some of the strangest animals to walk the Earth: wombats as big as hippos, sloths larger than bears, four-tusked elephants, and an armadillo that would have dwarfed a VW Beetle. They flourished for millions of years, then vanished from our planet just as humans emerged from their African homeland. It is one of palaeontology´s most intriguing mysteries and will form the core of a conference at Oxford University this week when delegates will debate whether climate change or human hunters killed off the planet´s lost megafauna, as these extinct giants are known. "Creatures like megatherium, the giant sloth,

The head of Russia’s state news agency and Vladimir Putin’s hand-picked propagandist, Dmitry Kiselyov, isn’t really going out of his way to keep the chest-thumping to a minimum: [Tweet] Maria Danilova @mashadanilova - As US condemns Crimean vote, Russian TV host Kiselyov warns: “Russia is the only country capable of turning the U.S. into radioactive dust.” [End Tweet] - Job offer from North Korea incoming. John Kerry has given Kiselyov until tomorrow to take this back. I’ve read that losing sleep because Russia can turn the U.S. into “radioactive dust” (and a general fear of Putin) is Kiselyov’s explanation for
