Investigative Findings:
Benghazi video linked to the CIA?
Canada Free Press, by Doug Hagmann    Original Article

Based on my extensive 18-month investigation, it is my professional conclusion that the Internet video known as Innocence of Muslims, the video allegedly responsible for Middle East violence and more importantly, the September 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi that resulted in the death of four Americans can be directly tied to a covert intelligence operation and operational assets of the U.S. Department of Justice. Additionally, the individuals and entities responsible for the Internet promotion of the video of that name can be traced not just to an intelligence operation contemporaneous to the attacks, but to previous events of historical significance and

Tokyo — Paul McCartney canceled his second concert in Tokyo on Sunday, as well as the makeup performance for the one nixed a day earlier, and apologized to his fans for still being sick with a virus. The former Beatle said on his "Out There Japan Tour 2014" site that he wanted to perform Sunday against doctors´ orders, but that his team wouldn´t allow it. "Unfortunately my condition has not improved overnight," he said. "I was really hoping that I´d be feeling better today. I´m so disappointed and sorry to be letting my fans down." McCartney, 71, got sick Friday,

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) encouraged graduates of the University of California Berkeley to be disruptors, using their knowledge and technology to shake up the economic system.“Being called a disruptor is a high compliment,” Pelosi said in prepared remarks Saturday. “You here at Berkeley are already disruptors in many ways.” Pelosi’s speech came nearly 50 years after students led by Mario Savio occupied a Berkeley building and launched the “free speech movement,” which sought to lift university bans on political activities. “Now, it’s all about you — what you can do with your freedom to speak out,

SOMA, Turkey — The death toll in the Turkish mine explosion rose to 299, with three more workers still believed trapped in the depths of the Soma mine, Turkey’s energy minister said Saturday in a televised statement. Further complicating the efforts to find the workers, a new fire broke out in a separate part of the mine Saturday when firefighters and rescue teams tried to put out the initial fire that caused most of the deaths, officials said. The new blaze along with methane gas leaks in several sections of the coal mine posed additional challenges to the rescue operation, Taner Yildiz,

Diplomat reveals White House fury
over Barack Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize
Independent (UK), by Tim Walker    Original Article
Posted By: FlyRight- 5/15/2014 5:59:31 PM     Post Reply
When Norway awarded Barack Obama the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, just weeks into his presidency, it was seen not as a mark of his achievements, but as yet another symbol of the impossibly high expectations he had set for his tenure. Now, a senior Norwegian diplomat has revealed that, far from feeling honoured by the award, the White House was furious. Morten Wetland, the former Norwegian ambassador to the UN, claimed in an article for the business paper Dagens Næringsliv this week that, when the Prize was announced, Mr Obama’s then-chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel confronted and “dressed down” the

GOP activist Karl Rove is being accused of gutter politics in a response by Hillary Clinton’s reps after remarks last week, reported by Page Six, that the former secretary of state may have brain damage from a blood clot she suffered in 2012.“From the moment this happened 17 months ago, the right has politicized her death,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said in a statement. “First they accused her of faking it. Now they’ve resorted to the other extreme – and are flat-out lying … All he wants to do is inject the issue into the echo chamber, and he’s succeeding.” This comes in response to Rove’s comments at a conference in Los Angeles last

Democrats Look Dubiously at
Joining Benghazi Panel

WASHINGTON — House Democrats on Sunday made it clear that they do not expect fair proceedings from the Republican-led panel newly tasked with investigating the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, but offered no definitive answer on whether they would appoint any of their own members to participate.Representative Xavier Becerra, a California Democrat, said members of his party would join the proceedings should Republicans — who have agitated for further investigation into the attack, which killed four Americans, including J. Christopher Stevens, the ambassador to Libya — agree not to block their full involvement. “We’ve always said that we’re ready to participate.

Bill Clinton! His very name is a noun for mover, an adjective for powerful and a synonym for statesman. Hillary Clinton! Her name has become a noun for shoo-in, an adjective for brilliant and a synonym for loyal wife.Monica Lewinsky? Her name was, is and always will be a noun for oral sex, an adjective for disgraceful and a synonym for whore. (Not to mention seductress, slut, laughingstock, fat girl, and, yes, nut job.)

Obama shrinks away
in the face of evil

As Barack Obama enters the twilight of his tenure, the debate over his legacy is ­beginning, but one conclusion already seems certain. It can best be described as “Honey, I shrunk the presidency.” Not since Jimmy Carter was held hostage by Iran has the Oval Office seemed so inconsequential against the forces of international darkness. The mismatch is particularly striking because smallness has been Obama’s choice. Although he is guilty of executive overreach at home, that bully behavior only sharpens the contrast with a foreign policy that is feeble when it is not comatose. The president’s estrangement from the demands

   

 



 
Hillary Clinton´s no good, very bad week
Politico, by Maggie Haberman    Original Article
Posted By: flyright- 5/10/2014 8:35:27 AM     Post Reply
Hillary Clinton isn’t a candidate for president, at least not yet. But this week felt like she was very much in the 2016 grind. One day, she was weighing in on gun control, Obamacare and social inequality. The next she was taking heat over Benghazi and facing questions about whether as Secretary of State she went too easy on the group behind the kidnap of Nigerian girls. Then there was Monica Lewinsky, reviving the scandals of 1998. It was arguably the roughest week Clinton has had since she left the State Department early last year, highlighting the tensions between the past and the future that will inevitably come to a head if she runs.

If this clip is any indication, Rep. Trey Gowdy won’t be letting the media off the hook for its silence on Benghazi: Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) turned the tables on the media and asked them questions about Benghazi . The silence was deafening. It seems like those in the room are a little embarrassed when Gowdy calls them out, and why shouldn’t they be? It is their responsibility to go after the hard questions – and when it comes to Benghazi, many asked nothing but fluff.

Yes - but what exactly is the president mad about? Is he mad that the VA deliberately falsified records showing that veterans were not being seen at VA hospitals in a timely manner? Or is he mad that the press found out about it? At any rate, I guess we´re supposed to assume that Barack Obama is "not going to take it anymore," right? USA Today: President Obama is "madder than hell" over delays at VA hospitals that may have contributed to the deaths of patients, and is determined to make improvements, a top aide says.

Attorney General Eric Holder said on Saturday while public utterances of bigotry are roundly condemned in the United States racial discrimination persists in more subtle ways. (Snip) He said the new battleground against discrimination should focus on policies and laws that appear race-neutral but in practice impede equal opportunity. "This is the work that truly matters - because policies that disenfranchise specific groups are more pernicious than hateful rants," Holder told the graduates at Morgan State, a historically black college. He cited disciplinary practices in schools that punish black males at three times the rate of their white peers. He

Dr. Benjamin Carson is becoming a serious voice in the political arena. The Retired Head of Pediatric Neurosurgery at John Hopkins and recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom may even be considering a run for the highest office in the land. In light of the Benghazi hearings and IRS scandal, Carson penned an editorial for the National Review, objectively pointing out why Obama is unfit for office. On Benghazi: “This should not be a partisan issue, because the implications of ignoring or prevaricating about the underlying mistakes will have far-reaching consequences.

The main squeeze of openly gay NFL player Michael Sam comes from a family of Midwest mobsters. Vito Cammisano, the hunky 23-year-old former collegiate swimmer, is the grandson of the late Mafia boss William (Willie the Rat) Cammisano. His father, Gerlarmo (Jerry) Cammisano, 60, followed in the family’s shady business and ended up doing 14 months in prison for running a Kansas City-based gambling ring, according to records. But on Saturday the Cammisano name became part of a feel-good sports story of the year when Sam became the first openly gay player drafted by an NFL team as Vito proudly stood at his

Rep. Peter King, New York Republican, said Friday there are many unanswered questions surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on Benghazi, but that to make it a political attack on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is “wrong.” “To me, there are major questions here as to why more action was not taken to provide security beforehand, and also when was this decision made, and why was it was made, in the immediate aftermath of the attacks, to say it was caused by a video when nothing on the ground was saying that?” Mr. King, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said on CNN.

This is your dream, America. Or this is your nightmare. Whatever the case, buckle up. Because Michael Sam just got here. His first few days with St. Louis Rams have been fascinating and thought-provoking and criticism-generating, and the odds are it´s going to keep happening. Because in Michael Sam, the NFL doesn´t just have its first openly gay player. Its first openly gay player is openly gay.

A prominent New York ophthalmologist believes that a special pair of glasses worn by former former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are the type used to treat the double vision sometimes caused by severe head trauma. In an interview with Fox News, Dr. Marc Werner said the glasses had a Fresnel prism. ´In order to see one object, your eyes need to be pointed in the same direction. If your eyes are misaligned, one way to optically align them is to put a prism ... on your glasses,´ he said.

McDonough will give the scoop on what the Obama Administration is doing to address reports of VA facilities concealing long wait times for patients.

Former Mayor Bloomberg went to bat for Hillary Clinton on Sunday, ripping Republicans who say they’re worried about the one-time secretary of state’s age and health. Bloomberg called Clinton a “spectacular candidate” and took GOP strategist Karl Rove to task for suggesting the former secretary of state might not be physically fit for office. “I understand political argument,” Bloomberg told “Face the Nation” on CBS. “You can disagree with somebody on their views. You can even criticize their performance. But there is a line beyond which you shouldn’t go. And I thought it was about as inappropriate a thing you could
