Will Obama Hold Anyone
Accountable For Benghazi?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Michael Ramirez

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 8/27/2013 7:30:31 PM

The Obama administration has determined that no one should be held accountable for the deaths of four brave Americans in Benghazi. Sure, it might have been the first time in 33 years that an American ambassador was killed while in service, but according to the White House it just adds up to a "phony" scandal. Secretary of State John Kerry decided that midlevel staffers suspended for the lax security surrounding the Benghazi compound were cleared to resume their jobs. Apparently, eight months paid leave is enough punishment. You might recall that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wanted these same employees fired, but

Of course not!
That would be a confession of personal guilt.

Stevens our government reported died by "lethal injection" that´s supposed to be cute for raped to death...his torture included his genatalia being cut off...But hey...Obama was ahead in gin rummy..and had no stomach for watching a US Ambassador tortured to death-- too upsetting to him. Think Stevens was upset?

Libya is where the arms were transferred to Syria...And the terrorists yelled on video...Don´t shoot, "Morsi sent us" Muslim Brotherhood has acquired unimaginable power under Obama...I pray the Egyptian Millitary relieves them of all power..more Christians will survive without the IslamoFascists

Don´t you understand that Obama creates so much daily havoc that no one can keep up with it and yesterday´s scandals are buried in today´s chaos. Benghazi is not in the news, because now the Administration has cooked up a new crisis, Syria.

Stanley Ann (abandoning her child) and her parents´ (who expose Obama as a child to self-confessed pedophilic pornographer, Frank Marshall) messed up lives led to Obama´s pathological narcissism and coupled with the power-obscessed, Lucifer-admiring Alinski teaching (Rules for Radicals), has been pure, unmitigated disaster for US interests around the world which will take decades to undo. Hillary working from the same Alinski workbook is probably no better herself.

#7, is exactly right. We have scandal fatigue and Obama wants to keep it that way. Anytime Bamghazi is mentioned on TV, there will be a liberal shaking his head saying that is old news and that there were many investigations held, and Republicans only want to tarnish this administration´s reputation, end of story. We have no cogent argument. The Republicans went belly up on this just like they did on Fast and Furious. Obama has been a travesty and the Republicans with their passivity have enabled him.

Syria has cover where they need it. We are only going to war to save what´s left of Obama´s Muslim Brotherhood. How many people support them. We will soon find out.

NO ! obama is not more important than the men who died for our country and who seem to have very little value to him or to Congress at this point. Some very few are still investigating. That means they are still asking questions that will never be answered and the press means for it to stay that way. Washington is verrrry far from what it was designed to be. We seem to have ourselves a ruler not a president and not a single consequence for all that he has done illegally and unconstitutionally.

Right on 17, UDANJA99, "BAMGHAZI" tops Watergate, Waco, and covers the scandal crime machine in one original word. Congratulations!
Michael RAMIREZ is one heroic, irreverent, amazing individual who stands up daily for the toughest truth, irony and humor. RAMIREZ, keep writing! And, thanks to IBD for presenting the words of your rare talent.
Lucianne has done it again, taken the Michael RAMIREZ incredible review of the Benghazi crime of crimes and his details of it for all to keep, file, and pass on to every intelligent person they know. This frightening act of Hillary and Barry is being covered up DAILY by a blitz of other scandals. Enough scandals, they hope, and everybody will forget their Pearl Harbor debacle. They are BOTH involved in this one. This is, THE NEVER FORGET one that contains murderous intent and total, rank dishonesty. It is not a stretch to consider these two would be felons as outright criminals.
RAMIREZ, you´re the greatest !

To reply #10 and #11- No, you were correct the first time. It is Bamghazi, or to be more correct, Obamaghazi ! But the Government ´gas´ already moved FORWARD to a number of other scandalous actions, today´s being Obamasyrious. Our Government is far more serious than just dysfunctional, they are inherently maniacal. They intend to bring down the U.S.´ way of life, and the World´s stability, by their ideology, and let me be clear, it is on purpose. ( All my opinion ).

I wonder if the “suspended” staffers had to sign Non-disclosure Agreements, like the Benghazi survivors did, promising not to divulge – to Congress or the press ¬– anything that they were aware of that might contradict the administration’s “official version of the Benghazi fairy tale” or otherwise indicate even a molecule’s worth of responsibility on the part of Hillary, Obama or any other member of the administration.

You would think that at least one of the Benghazi survivors; White House, DOD or State Department staffers that know the truth about what really happened that night would either: a) feel that their duty to their country was more important than their duty to protect their corrupt “leaders”, or b) have an attack of conscience for the four Americans who needlessly died during the 7 ½ hour long attack; that they would be willing to step forward and reveal the truth to their fellow Americans.

But I guess that their misplaced loyalty will only allow them to leak information (like a sieve) that they are told to leak – to make Obama look good.

The GOP has been hijacked. That’s right, hijacked. Over the past 100 years, an elite progressive minority has taken the Republican Party far afield from its conservative platform and the interests and values of its grassroots conservative base. I’ll admit that, in the aftermath of the disappointments of the 2012 elections, conservatives like me are angry. We are angry at being blamed for Mitt Romney’s defeat, when we argued from the beginning that he was a Big Government establishment politician and that if he ran a content-free campaign, he would lose.

She no doubt had to make some tough decisions while at State, and has at least one big decision to make coming up in the next year or so. But the former Cabinet member and possible future presidential candidate may have been better served by a different title—like, say, Tough Decisions. Because Hard Choices has already been used.

The ´War on Women´ Failed in 2012

President Obama is suddenly upset about the alleged wage gap between men and women, but he´s not responding to a national economic crisis. Instead, he is attempting to revive the "war on women" theme that, according to Washington wisdom, helped carry Democrats to victory in 2012 and might do again in 2014. If this narrative were true, the White House could spend the year demonizing Republicans as women-hating creeps, driving women to the polls in November and helping the party hold the Senate. But the conventional analysis isn´t accurate. National exit polls from 2012 show scant success for the war-on-women

Marking the first time a court has ruled that a provision of Dodd-Frank violates the Constitution, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C.

Washington set a new record in 2013 by issuing final rules consuming 26,417 pages in the Federal Register. While plenty of government employees deserve credit for this milestone, leadership matters. And by this measure President Obama has never been surpassed in the Oval Office.

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
