Ben Rhodes: Obama´s Fixer
behind the Benghazi Cover-Up

American Thinker, by Ed Lasky

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 5/13/2013 6:13:57 AM

Barack Obama´s "Tower of Fabrications," as Peter Wehner describes the Benghazi scandal, is beginning to crack. And that crack will soon reveal a central figure behind the cover-up, a man close to Barack Obama for years but generally unknown to the public: Ben Rhodes. Rhodes has risen from being an obscure and failed fiction writer to formulating foreign and national security policy for Obama precisely because he is willing to his superiors´ bidding regardless of facts. He has a history of using whatever talents he has with the pen to do so.

Just another hack behind the Obama curtain that makes sure a string of lies and coverups never stop.

Look into Clappers communications director, Shawn Turner, who was sending out info on Clappers behalf-- that Clapper refused to support when he then returned from overseas.

It seems our agencies are not being run by the figurehead appointed..but by others willing to do most unusual things for the Obama Administration.

The whole political world and news media are involved in such an incestuous relationship that fact finding is brushed aside in favor of ideology. It is no longer follow the facts wherever they lead you. Now facts don´t matter. Everything is subject to political spin. This administration is filled with people willing to do or say anything to advance an agenda. They have a narrative. They want it out there and they will not let facts get in their way. There are millions of Ben Rhodes out there. Just read the comments on the Internet. Facts are a waste of time for them.

This country has no leadership just a group of bad actors with the likes of Ben Rhodes writing the ´fiction´ and doing a very good job of it.

I thought this was all Valarie Jarrett´s doing but it goes deeper with Ben Rhodes being a bad player in all of this.
Subpoena Rhodes and Clinton put them under oath and start lying.

Obama and ´his people´ spend most of their time and energy covering their butts instead of concentrating on critical issues affecting Americans.

It seems as if they, at all cost, will do whatever it takes to see that Obama´s reputation is unharmed. We just want the truth....it´s not that much to ask for under normal circumstances and with ´normal´ people. He should not - and must not - get away with this.

In addition, the IRS scandal tells us all we need to know about how a democracy can be destroyed from ´within´. Outrageous, infuriating and chilling!

His brother, David Rhodes, is head of CBS News, and "Furthermore, Ben Rhodes is married to Ann Norris, senior foreign and defense advisor to Senator Barbara Boxer (D-California). One might with some justification expect Sen. Boxer to run interference for Ben Rhodes should investigations begin to focus on his role in the Benghazi scandal."

Those little connecting dots just keep popping up in interesting places. Thanks to Ed Lasky, and others, for keeping an eye out for them.

There was a time in America when a crucial question such as “Who gave the order to Stand Down?” remaining unanswered for eight months – Eight Months! - would have been inconceivable. Now, with Obama the Truth Dodger’s fingerprints all over it, it’s conceivable. To put an even finer point on it, it’s obvious.

“Hello, he lied.” is the old joke that could have been inspired by Barack Hussein Obama. Concealing his past from Day One five years ago is all the evidence needed to demonstrate just how much he respects the word “truth,” much less the concept of it.

“You can’t handle the truth!” Now, where have I heard that before?!?!

Truth, can be suppressed only so long. It gains momentum and soon boils up like lava out of a volcano consuming everything in its wake. What a bunch of incestuous pigs. Interesting to see them scurry in every direction covering their collective petards. Meanwhile, Truth just keeps exposing the darkness in these pathetic, petty lives.

Quotes from the Court Word Manipulator ...

"When I use a word,´ Humpty Rhodes said in rather a scornful tone, ´it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less."

"The question is," said Judge jeannie, "why you want to make words mean so many different things."

"The question is," said Humpty Rhodes, "which is to be master— that´s all."

"off with his head," Judge Jeannie said with command.

Most of what kids are taught in school today is fiction and the Benghazi core up is just one more lie that the no brainers will believe is fact. I am still waiting for any of the tragedies brought on by this administration and lied about who did it to actually cause obama a moment of worry. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Why do we allow the press to have absolute power to re write history and turn lies into facts ?

A dicktater like Hussein needs the equivalent of a Joseph Goebbels in his organization to create and perpetuate the flow of lies. What these amateur tin gods forgot is that you need to have a basis in your lies of enough elements of the truth to make the lies believable. Ben Rhodes began with complete fiction in the Benghazi story and it soon fell apart. The reason that it took eight months for these roaches to be exposed to the light is that the MSM went along completely and they are better at lies, or more accurately, hiding the truth, than the amateurs in Washington. Obama may not be impeached for his dereliction of duty but his sorry butt is hanging out there in the light with the rest of them. I don´t look for many of today´s questions, if they are real questions, to be answered by the Roach-in-Chief but the squirming will be very obvious. He lied, hillary lied and a bunch of other people were ordered to lie. Our widespread outrage is finally justified.

Obama: the Pen,

American Thinker, by William L. Gensert    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 2/28/2014 9:39:31 AM     Post Reply
Barack Obama is a failure as president, and with a little less than 3 years before he leaves office, people are starting to notice. On the economy, he has presided over the worst economic recovery from recession since WW II, and the lowest labor force participation rate in decades. He spent a trillion dollars of ‘stimulus,’ rewarding political backers and cronies, while exploding the budget line. This he touts as a great success, saving the nation from depression and saving or creating 6 million jobs. The ‘saved or created’ thing is perfect when trying to cast failure as success. Who can check

Evidence is accumulating of a corrupt bureaucratic culture in many, if not all, federal agencies. Revelations of lavish meetings at fancy hotels, featuring stupid but expensive custom-made videos emerged in the last couple of years. But even worse, cases of bureaucrats stealing from taxpayers by taking time off while still being paid high salaries have been reported recently, with their supervisors knowingly turning a blind eye to the taxpayer rip-off. The EPA’s highest-paid employee pretended to be a CIA agent and defrauded the taxpayers of about $900,000 (snip) Officials in two Treasury Department bureaus fraudulently enriched themselves at taxpayer expense,

Razing Arizona: Conservatives

Perhaps Arizona governor Jan Brewer was sincere when saying that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (SB 1062) she vetoed yesterday could “create more problems than it purports to solve.” After all, observers such as Napp Nazworth at The Christian Post contend that SB 1062 might actually — contrary to all the hysteria — have made it harder for most business owners to refuse service to homosexuals. This analysis may have merit and can be read here, but it’s irrelevant to a larger point: The GOP’s handling of this matter was a good illustration of conservatism’s fatal flaw. Whatever the legal realities, about

President Obama´s newfound enthusiasm for the minimum wage is the political equivalent of a ruse of war. With an eye on the approaching midterm elections, the Demagogue-in-Chief hopes to lure his Republican enemies into a discussion on his ideological home turf so he can pound away at them mercilessly and distract from his own political problems. As his approval rating slides, Obama has heartily embraced the red herring as the cornerstone of his public relations strategy. Bearing his by now familiar deer-in-the-headlights look, he officially knows next to nothing about what his administration is doing and is constantly on the lookout for

The horror of National Socialism is so profound and universally acknowledged that comparing our current political and social climate with the rise of the Nazis is sometimes too often and too easily done. The radical left four decades ago observed that Hitler called for "Law and Order," just as conservatives were doing then. Conservatives have noted that the rise of paganism in American culture and the deconstruction of moral values pushed by the left hearken back to another grim legacy of Nazism. There are, however, some chilling suggestions in politics and government today that draw memories of the last days of

Republicans won California in every presidential election of the ´50s, ´60s, ´70s, and ´80s, except for the ´64 Goldwater loss. Now California has a third-world economy with one-party dominance. The pro-amnesty Republicans should think clearly about what happened to the Golden State. Today, California´s GOP has withered to a small fraction of the state´s registered voters. Since the state began tracking party affiliation in 1922, Republicans have never had such a low share. Republicans are now 29 percent of voters; Democrats are 44 percent. But California did not go quietly. In 1994, California voters, and governor Pete Wilson, tried to eliminate the incentives

PHOENIX — Ending a day that cast a glaring national spotlight on Arizona, Gov. Jan Brewer, a Republican, vetoed a bill on Wednesday that would have given business owners the right to refuse service to gay men, lesbians and other people on religious grounds. Her action came amid mounting pressure from Arizona business leaders, who said the bill would be a financial disaster for the state and would harm its reputation.

But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being hammered by Republican lawmakers after he claimed on the Senate floor that all the ObamaCare "horror stories" being circulated are untrue. Reid tried to clarify his remarks late Wednesday by saying he was only referring to the “vast majority” of stories featured in ads funded by Americans for Prosperity, a conservative group, and not the complaints of everyday Americans. However, he added fuel to the fire by continuing to slam the group’s backers, the Koch brothers, calling them “un-American.” Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips, in response, said Reid had effectively

PHOENIX -- Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed Wednesday a controversial bill that would have allowed businesses to deny services to gays and others based on religious beliefs. The veto of Senate Bill 1062 will likely be met with praise from Arizona´s business community, which called on Brewer to veto it citing potential damage to Arizona´s economy. The Arizona Chamber of Commerce said Monday the bill could hurt tourism, make it hard to recruit new businesses and open the door to lawsuits against businesses. Three Republican state senators also joined thee call for Brewer to veto the bill. On Wednesday, it was reported that

Vice President Joe Biden has revealed that the President assigned him ‘every s*** job in the world’ but he still wasn’t able to win Obama’s full support and began being effectively frozen out after one of his infamous gaffes. The 71-year-old argued that he was happy to do the less glamorous tasks- like handling the at-times petty Senate fights and calming the fears of the infamously paranoid President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai- but only at a price. ‘When the president asked me what portfolio did I want, I said, “Base it on what you want of me to help you
