The Smearing of Chris Stevens
Power Line, by Scott Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/26/2014 4:31:41 PM

Last week the Wall Street Journal published Gregory Hicks’s column “Benghazi and the smearing of Chris Stevens.” It would be easy to overlook Hicks’s column in the crush of last week’s news, but it is deserving of special attention. In the column Hicks offers his eyewitness testimony to the security issues that Stevens dealt with at our Libyan facilities before his death. The redacted report of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Committee that was released on January 15 has left some to draw the conclusion that Stevens rejected additional security and to imply that he is responsible for the success

This makes me sick. A dead man is being maligned and Mr. Hicks is being ruined to cover up incompetence/duplicity.

A lot of questions would be answered if it could be determined who gave the order to stand down.

While the parents of the other slain heroes have been vocal, there has been nothing but "we don´t want his death politicized" from Stevens´ family. They must be very partisan democrats. I thought when blame was being put on Stevens himself, they might speak up, not wanting him criticized....but not a peep from them that I have heard about.

When H! testified, finally, I remember being totally disgusted by the fawning of the rat senators and her use of Ambassador Stevens first name only - obviously to imply what a great and close friend he was - despite ignoring his requests and leaving him to die.

So no one seems to have answered the most important question - just where were zero and hillary while all this was going on? She who accused him of not being there at 3 a.m. was right about that but where was she? Probably trying to figure out how to cover her own hide is what I think. She is totally unfit for anything.

Back in May 2013, American Spectator had an article entitled: From Bimbos to Benghazi - Benghazi whistleblowers as the new Clinton “bimbo eruptions.”


Thus, the tactics used to smear Bill Clinton’s women -- his “bimbo eruptions” as the phrase of the day went -- are now being wheeled out to deal with Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi whistleblowers.

Boehner and McConnell should be out there front and center in press conferences with Sean Smith´s brave mother. I want to cry when she confronts the media all alone in the injustices about Benghazi and the death of her son. She can only manage to get on FOX occasionally and nobody powerful on our side of the aisle helps,protects or stands by her. She puts herself out there - a total gift to the Republican leadership who keep SAYING they want to get to the bottom if this scandal. It´s clear Chris Stevens´ parents are fine with protecting Hillary and Obama - shocking isn´t it?

It is horribly and sickeningly obvious that Ambassador Stevens´ parents care more about this Leftist political ideology than they do their country or even their own son.

Sound harsh? Then where are they?

Incredibly, they must agree with Queen Hillary. What does it matter at this point?

#2, There is no person too great to slander and malign to protect the Hildabeast. These people would sacrifice their own mothers to advance their agenda. The people in control of our government today are without honor, integrity, and are invested in doing whatever it takes to achieve their goals. There is no room for truth when your whole life is based on lie after lie. Gregory Hicks is a hero for speaking up. There will come a time when that will become dangerous. Tread carefully, Mr. Hicks. These people mean business and any threat to their power they take very seriously.

I really don´t care if Chris Stevens parents are silent about their son´s murder. They have to live with themselves and their silence. I DO care that the image and reputation of the US has been severly damaged by Obama and Hillary because of Benghazi, Libya in general, Egypt, etc ad nauseum.

"If you are killed in the line of duty, the leaders of the free world will lie to your caskets." Ken Blackwell. and we sure have gone down this road with Hilary. Her first act as FLOTUS was to fire the travel office and replace with the "supporters" who gave cash to the Clinton campaign. OK. Pretty sleazy. Sure. But this sort of pay to play politics is not unheard of. What galled me was that she then used the machinery of the Federal Government to destroy the lives of the totally innocent Travel Office employees. That anyone ever could support this woman depresses me beyond measure. Makes me wonder what´s so great about democracy to start with. Idiots vote too and yes, at this point, if you still like Hillary, you´re either totally corrupt or an idiot.

Here´s a more direct question than, "Who gave the stand down order?" How about, "Who didn´t give the Cross Border Authority order?"

Hint: only the president has that authority. Without it, the military was powerless to act, and the president knew it.

Propaganda is the weapon used daily by our Communist tainted leaders, and their army of lie supporting press and TV media. Propaganda, lying of the state, is the first business of tyrannical dictators. We have a government packed with uncountable numbers of little dictators, all creating their own little universes of lies against the citizens of America. propaganda is lying.
Hilary vies for the Number One position of Liar in Chief.
In the last few weeks, from politically corrupted New York, three wackos have all come out spouting Communist propaganda, De Blasio, Cuomo, and now, Bloomberg screaming not legalizing the alien illegal aliens will be suicide, can you believe such insane stupidity? Then, New York throws in the equally crazed
Narcissist, Weiner. Where is Donald Trump when we need him?
The Stevens four dead are now being covered up with bitter government contrived propaganda, right out of the Lenin Marxist Communist play book.
It is time for all Ldotters to seriously consider exposing themselves to a few classic books on propaganda.

"THE BIRTH OF THE PROPAGANDA STATE - Soviet methods of mass mobilization 1917-1929", by Peter Kenez, is a shocking revelation of basically, what is being perpetrated by our lying, sick government, on all of America. Both the Nazis and the Soviets had it down cold, and presently we are totally naive to the reality of massive propaganda.

#13 - Paying off the family of their murder victims is a long-standing policy for the Dhims. I believe the precedent was set when the Kennedy´s paid off the parents of Mary Jo Kopechne.

I´m sure Obama and Hillary! feel secure that their lies will be accepted and the true nature of their treasonous murder will never be exposed. The MSM is in their pocket and those that should be investigating, the Republican Party, are complicit. What else can be concluded after the majority of the GOP members at the Senate Committee Hearing wasted their question time with phony compliments. When she was actually pressed about her egregious lies she replied in her best harridan manner, “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?”

When she flamed out with this answer no one had the presence of mind to say, “Madame, compose yourself, and tell us why you pulled security from a Middle East hot spot just weeks before the 11th anniversary of 9-11.”

It would be nice if we had an opposition party.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste.

The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
