Politics! Politics! They’re playing politics in Washington! Pretending to be modern Paul Reveres, Democrats and their media handmaidens are doing their damnedest to diminish the Benghazi revelations with the cheapest trick in town. While there is always pungent hypocrisy when one gang of politicians accuses another gang of playing politics, the current phony outrage from the Obama Protection Society is exceptionally putrid. After all, the whole saga of Benghazi — before, during and after the terror attack — reflects nothing so much as the ultimate expression of Barack Obama’s politics.
Isn´t there a saying something to the effect that a dead fish starts stinking from its head. Putrid is a good word to describe anything Obama. Toss a pebble in his pond and the ripples just keep going.
Remember that fundraiser Obama attended after the Benghazi slaughter, the one hosted by Jay-Z & B with the Champagne tower? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2205541/280-000-champagne-tower-Obama-fundraiser-Jay-Z-Beyonce-Manhattan-night-club.html
Now that we know that 0bama and Hillary lied to save his election, and that Romney was right from minute one, shouldn´t we call a new election? No campaigning, No time to organize voter fraud. Give the states a couple of weeks to get ready and a little more time for the truth to come out and then just vote.
The Democrats have sold their souls to the Devil. Power corrupts and their corruption has been complete. For them to go along with this lie is unforgivable. I hope the American voter will know enough to vote against them in 2014. We need term limits and a big change in Washington.
Boy, would it be really nice to see the democrats whole "House of Cards" come tumbling down. It is way overdue. If the media ever feels the heat of their co=conspiracy maybe they could start doing their job´s. Ah, never happen.
I just read an article this morning in my local paper from the AP describing Benghazi. If one didn´t bother to look into it, one would think that it is a Republican attack against poor little Hilary. If this is what papers print now, no wonder the readers are called low information voters. I can´t understand why a person just wouldn´t ask themselves "but who gave the order to stand down". I think those 4 brave men deserve that answer and so do their families.
If you haven’t as yet viewed “Your Sunday Video” by Judge Jeanine Pirro in today’s Must Reads section, be sure to do so. It’s very well thought out and presented. And just as night follows day, the usual Obama sycophantic suspects will be pooh-poohing it non-stop. They’ll be belittling the video in that feeble, desperate way of theirs as flop-sweat puddles around their feet.
It’s been eight months since the question, “Who gave the order to Stand Down?” was first asked; and still no answer. Do ya think maybe there’s (wait for it) a coverup? Do ya? Do ya, huh?
...the attempt to silence the whistleblowers by Hillary’s henchmen, and the demotion of one in a way that looks to be a clear case of retaliation, demolishes any pretense that the White House wants the truth. Instead, it will fight like hell to keep the public ignorant.
It has become self-evident that this is SOP for Obama and Hillary.
By far, one of the best columns I´ve read regarding Obama, Hillary and others doing their best to keep the truth (the sordid, awful truth) about their disregard for our loyal and brave Americans who were under attack in Benghazi.
There are no words (for me, anyway) filthy enough to describe my contempt for these people who are not fit to serve - in any capacity - in DC, or even in my little city.
We have yet to hear from people who were on the ground in Benghazi. Who told the SEALs to stand down? Why was the Turkish rep there? Where are the survivors. Why is Congress sidestepping these questions? My guess is because that they already know the answers. Whatever was happening in Benghazi was classified. This current episode is just the tip of the iceberg and I think we all know it. We need a CIA whistle-blower to come forward.
Benghazi is about murders and the top tier of this administration is complicit. Obama told them to stand down and went to bed never to be seen or heard from again. What reason he let these people die we may never know or maybe he doesn´t take his job and duties seriously. I know what he did when he rose on 9-12-12. Obama went to Vegas and had a champagne waterfall with Jay-Z and Bouncy not giving a thought to the four murders he let happen while he rested. Hillary was probably in a drunken stuper. One said "it was a bump in the road" the other one said "what difference does it make now" I say we look into that bump in the road and try to make a difference for the families who lost lives in this muslim terrorist attack. Can you say dereliction of duty?
Very strong article with the appropriate negative words and phrases. The Demonrat party is indeed filled with putrid matter, the result of hatred and vitriol for anything that is not Leftist/Liberal/Progressive. The Demonrat party proves once again that it is the party of death and destruction.
Michael Goodwin makes his understanding of good vs. evil known before most of the depraved writers´ circle. Maybe they will have the guts to follow him. Michael Goodwin is out there before so many with political party and CIA connections. Michael Goodwin reminds them of real eternal accountability for these high crimes, even before a host of our pastors and evangelists who should have a nodding acquaintance with the prophecy of the "Revelation" Trumpets: that is, we have probably heard 5 of the 7 Revelation Trumpets; we have let Evil alone to set us up for nuclear WWIII/ which is Trumpet #6. BTW, the 7 Vials are poured out in the "Tribulation;" the 7 Seals are about to opened to release the Horses of the Last Days.]. Today we are at a Tipping Point of Good vs Evil now, or Good Being Called Evil and Evil Called Good now. Good for Michael Goodwin for calling a spade a spade.
Just checked CBS News site (after listening to Sharyll Attkisson on C-Span). You have to dig into the politics section to find her article (and no mention of her on the front page listing her TV appearances today). They are fake, using her to pretend that they were all over this. She devastated the admin mentioning background sources that back up her findings. Low info Dems faded out of the phone calls by the end except for the ´Well, Bush did it to´ diehard..
“House Speaker John Boehner is facing mounting pressure to create a special or select committee to investigate the Benghazi terror attacks in which four Americans were killed.”
John Boehner should be the one spearheading this effort; not someone who has to be pressured to create a special or select committee. He should be using all of his energy to push this forward until it happens. But after watching John Boehner over the past few months has convinced me that he is not temperamentally suited to the job. We need an aggressive Speaker of the House who does not need to be prodded to show his fangs when necessary. We need more of a pit bull than a toy poodle.
"They are putting party before duty, plain and simple."
And when have they ever done otherwise? I will say it again: I have in the past, but I will never vote for another Democrat, not even for dogcatcher. Dogs are our loyal and faithful companions, and even the worst cur among them deserves better.
Democrats like Cummings and Norton who defended Barry and Hillary and insulted the three brave Benghazi witnesses are traitors. They deserve to be in the lowest LEVEL OF DANTE´S HELL, reserved for sodomites, betrayers of benefactors, and those who yell curses at God as the fire of hell roll over them.
Anyone who aids or abets this administration in its betrayal of Americans serving their country, dying at the hands of terrorists, is just as execrable as is the administration itself. Anyone who votes again for any of these people deserves the same contempt.
Common sense dictates that Obama and Clinton be tried for FRAUD, for their LIES about Benghazi, and then, after they are perp walked to prison, we need to mandate a new election, as #4 says, so that we can honestly elect Romney this time without the aid to Obama of the ass-press, the networks, cable news liars, Candy Crowley´s lies, little chrissie tingles´ lies, MSNBC´s lies, the NY Slimes´ lies, the WaPo´s lies...and the utter RACISM of the black population in voting 95% for the half-black guy simply because of his skin color! Enough FRAUD! And enough of this "CULTURAL MARXISM" perpetrated by those little alinsky-loving students of his, Obama and Clinton! We are Americans....not Marxists!
I believe with all my heart that our defacto President, Valerie Jarrett gave the Stand Down order. 0 was asleep. Jarrett is running the country, and the sooner this can be discovered, the sooner something can be done.
If Obama and Clinton skate on Benghazi, I believe this will be one for the history books that will be dissected over and over again. These two are covering each others´ butts only to protect themselves.
The MOST important thing about Benghazi is that four Americans died. Quite possible one, two or three didn´t have to. And all would be alive if O&C had heeded Ambassador Stevens call for aid before the attack. I am so outraged, and I simply cannot believe how the families of these four men are coping.
What should give us pause is the fact that the ONLY reason Hillary and Obama lied, was to protect their careers. They proved they thought more of themselves than the did the lives of those who protect them. They both wanted to be president and were willing to let people die, if necessary, to get elected. They could have come clean and told the truth about their mistakes and incompetence but they chose to lie in hopes nobody would see that neither one is qualified for the offices they sought. Basically, the wanted to hide the truth about themselves from the people so they could get elected; Obama at the time it happened and Hillary in the future. For their attempt to deceive and to place themselves in offices they are not qualified for, they should be tried for treason.
What are they trying to cover up? I hope it will be soon when the media confirm that "the consulate security" were Libyans--loosely affilated with al-Qaeda--and that Chris Stevens´ cries for help and more security were based on the fact that the latest Obama "Muslim outreach" program put al-Qaeda inside the walls of the consulate. Obama´s Muslim Outreach program put the February 17th Martyrs Brigade, a Benghazi-based militia with Islamist elements, in charge of Stevens´ security. Now, how dumb is that? About as dumb as blaming it on a You Tube video.
I am with you #35. Wish we could "like" posts. It is a good article, emailed to my LoFo family as well as posted on my FB. Thankkyou Lucianne for sharing this board. The article is straight talk, not to fancy for my LoFo friends to read and once again very much in their face. Willful ignorance can no longer be an excuse for the LoFo.
#37, I think Jarrett did it, too. That would be even worse than if Obama had given the stand-down order, because he handed over the reins of his most important function, Commander-in-Chief, to someone else, and then went to bed.
Unleashing a barrage of expletives that would be unusual even in an off-the-record conversation, the chief spokeswoman for Anthony D. Weiner’s embattled campaign for mayor attacked a former campaign intern in an interview published on Tuesday night. Barbara Morgan, in an interview with Talking Points Memo, a political news site, was responding to a first-person account by Olivia Nuzzi, the former intern, who wrote harshly in The Daily News about her experiences with the campaign. Ms. Nuzzi claimed that Mr. Weiner repeatedly called interns by the wrong name, underpaid a staff
THERE is something missing from the endless moralizing and sophomoric jokes aimed at Anthony D. Weiner. That something is the role of women in a coarse and creepy Internet culture dedicated to the fulfillment of both male and female desires for virtual carnal knowledge. People ask how Mr. Weiner’s wife, the soulfully beautiful and professionally accomplished Huma Abedin, can stay with him. My question is why hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of women apparently derive gratification from exchanging sexual talk and pictures with strangers.
The American journalism trade is breathing a collective – but premature and, in many cases, grossly hypocritical – sigh of relief today. A military judge has found Bradley Manning guilty of many crimes, but "aiding the enemy" isn´t one of them. Had the judge found Manning guilty of aiding the enemy, she would have set a terrible precedent. For the first time, an American court – albeit a military court – would have said it was a potentially capital crime simply to give information to a news organization, because in the internet era
Green paint was found Monday defacing a statue outside the Smithsonian Castle on the National Mall and poured atop an organ in a chapel at the Washington National Cathedral, just three days after the Lincoln Memorial was vandalized in a similar manner. D.C. police have now joined the U.S. Park Police in the investigation, but authorities said they do not know if any of the incidents are related.
"I think every president in the intense media environment we have now, certainly every two-term president, gets to a point where the American people stop listening, stop leaning forward hungrily for information. I think this president got there earlier than most presidents. And I think he´s in that time now."So said the Wall Street Journal´s Peggy Noonan on ABC´s This Week Sunday.
David Axelrod, a former senior adviser to President Obama, said Sunday that Former Rep. Anthony Weiner was “delusional” and should drop out of the race for New York City mayor."I think it´s time for him to go away and let New York have its mayor’s race," Axelrod said on NBC´s "Meet thePress." Axelrod said he had not commented on Weiner because he is personal friends with Weiner´s wife,
Weiner’s political career will never end, if only because of how much value he has to offer to the media, standup comedians and bored browsers looking for some news item to wake them up long enough to finish another hour of data entry at their job. Shame has become a mostly discredited concept. The return of Weiner and Spitzer to public life proves as much. But the Era of Shame ended conclusively with Clinton’s impeachment proceedings. The only outcome of those proceedings was to degrade the country while leaving the man at the center of the mess intact.
Sometimes James Risen feels like Jean Valjean, the beleaguered protagonist of “Les Miserables,” hounded for years by the authorities. “They just keep coming at me,” Mr. Risen, a Times reporter in Washington, told me by phone last week. It has been 10 years since he learned of a secret C.I.A. program to interfere with Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons, and six since he got an ominous FedEx package containing a government subpoena. Since then, it has been one legal hurdle after another, trying to stay out of court. Just over a week ago, another blow came: A federal appeals court panel ruled,
In a new sign of tumult within Anthony D. Weiner’s embattled political operation, his campaign manager has quit, leaving his already skeletal team without a day-to-day leader. According to two people told of the decision, the campaign manager, Danny Kedem, no longer wished to oversee Mr. Weiner’s bid for New York mayor after a week of bruising revelations about the candidate’s latest online conduct. The two people, who have close ties to the campaign, did not want to be identified because they were disclosing confidential conversations.
Hamilton Jordan, Jimmy Carter’s young, brash chief of staff, was famous during the administration for negotiating tough deals, carousing at night and shunning the stuffy customs of official Washington. He spent the final years of his life on a quieter pursuit: writing a memoir of nearly 300 pages that was not quite finished at the time of his death in 2008. Now his daughter, Kathleen, a 24-year-old television producer, is rushing to polish the manuscript in the hope of getting it published
President Obama suggested that states reconsider "stand your ground" laws, and contended that they invite people to use deadly force when it is not justified. The following statement proves Mr. Obama´s well-known dishonesty, as demonstrated below. I refer specifically to his implication that "stand your ground" means you can shoot somebody who makes you "feel threatened." And for those who resist that idea that we should think about something like these "stand your ground" laws, I just ask people to consider if Trayvon Martin was of age and armed,
If you have never suffered from lingering low back pain, you’re lucky or, more likely, young. Up to 80 percent of us will experience low back pain at some point. And for most, there won’t be an identifiable cause. In the past 10 years, the most popular nonsurgical medical treatment for “chronic, nonspecific” low back pain has been injection therapy, or shots into the lower back of various substances — usually cortisone but also liquid ibuprofen, morphine and vitamin B12.
FORNEY, Texas - George Zimmerman, the former Florida neighborhood watch leader cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, was pulled over for speeding in North Texas on Sunday, CBS DFW reports. According to the station, Zimmerman was armed when officers pulled him over on Highway 80 in Forney, east of Dallas. (Snip) The officer reportedly did not recognize Zimmerman, who was driving a Honda pickup. Zimmerman told the officer he was armed and was then told to put the weapon in his glove compartment, according to the station.
Arizona Sen. John McCain was the Republican Party´s 2008 presidential nominee and he still wants the keys to the Oval Office. But he is beginning to sound more like a fan of likely 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. "She´s a rock star," he said in a newly released interview. "She has, maybe not glamour, but certainly the aura of someone widely regarded throughout the world," he added in a reference to her work as secretary of State. McCain, reportedly trying to win back his reputation as a GOP maverick, was asked by the New Republic
President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that
Gotta figure her lead would be even bigger without Joe Miller in the field here. Her nomination for the taking? Alaska should be a top tier pick up opportunity for Senate Republicans next year…but their top choice of a candidate is Sarah Palin. 36% of GOP primary voters in the state say they’d like Palin to be their standard bearer against Mark Begich to 26% for Mead Treadwell, 15% for Dan Sullivan, and 12% for Joe Miller.
Embattled Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner and an attorney in the Federal Election Commission’s general counsel’s office appear to have twice colluded to influence the record before the FEC’s vote in the case of a conservative non-profit organization, according to e-mails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee and obtained exclusively by National Review Online. The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,
Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.
In an interview on National Public Radio (NPR), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her new agenda for women will give mothers access to day care so they can “earn without carrying the burden of child care.” During the interview, aired on Weekend Edition Sunday, Pelosi spoke about her newly announced agenda, which is on her website, and is titled, “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds: An Economic Agenda for Women and Families,” a plan that includes universal pre-school and access to day care for working women, and an increase in the minimum wage.
Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
No matter how much you may hope for it, it seems unlikely that you´ll be using the phrase "Senator Sarah Palin" with any great regularity in 2015. A new poll indicates that the former Alaska governor is about as popular in the state as Barack Obama — which is to say, not very popular at all. But even more surprising, while the former vice presidential candidate has made Alaska a central part of her public image, the state´s residents split on the question of whether Palin is all that Alaskan. Conducted by Public Policy Polling,
In her first speech since taking over the Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy came out swinging Tuesday and promised to ramp up the aggressive climate change agenda laid out by President Obama.(snip)“Can we stop talking about environmental regulations killing jobs? Please, at least for today,” she said during remarks at Harvard Law School. “We need to cut carbon pollution to grow jobs. We need to cut carbon pollution to strengthen the economy. Let’s talk about it positively. Let’s approach this as an opportunity of a lifetime. There are too many lifetimes at stake.”
The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have
Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey — whose most recent work includes the psychological thriller, “House of Cards,” about an unethical congressman — said in a recent interview that most Americans just aren’t grasping President Obama’s greatness. “President Obama will go down as having passed some of the most historic bills in the history of this country,” he said, in a recent talk with Hot Press magazine. “That despite constant knee-jerk opposition from the Republicans. A lot of people don’t realize how much he’s done in the most difficult circumstances.” Mr. Spacey is far less appreciative of Congress. “It’s maybe interesting
