The Ben Rhodes Story: How A
Hack Writer Crafted the Benghazi
Talking Points of a Lifetime

Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/4/2014 5:42:01 AM

Republican South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the Benghazi Select Committee, said this week that no witnesses are off limits in his committee’s investigation into the Benghazi cover-up. So who will he subpoena? Here’s a suggestion: How about Ben Rhodes. Ben Rhodes, the 37-year old little brother of CBS News president David Rhodes, is a national security adviser to President Obama. He also happens to be an Upper East Side literary type who took a Master’s in Fiction from NYU. Real serious artist. Rhodes was the one who edited the White House’s Benghazi talking points to focus the blame on

A hack writer for NSC, a community activist fiction for POTUS, a delusional flasher for VP and a congenital liar for SOS - the world is in flames and a dead Ambassador and three murdered Patriots are the first Victims of the Destroyer.
Remember Benghazi Four and avenge their deaths and these traitors Lies.
Restore the Republic.

Sadly, when you get past the mockery, you have to admit that Mr. Rhodes may have this idea for a script in his back pocket - maybe in ten years time it will be a movie of the week on CBS (if there still is a CBS).

Group whose complaint led to Rick Perry
indictment no stranger to political retaliation
Morning News [Dallas, TX], by Wayne Slater    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/4/2014 12:57:17 PM     Post Reply
When Rick Perry warned darkly that those behind his indictment “will be held accountable,” Craig McDonald felt a target on his back. It wouldn’t be the first time. McDonald heads the left-leaning, nonprofit group Texans for Public Justice, which has rankled politicians in both parties for years by tracking campaign contributions with a ruthless efficiency to reveal big money in politics. Texans for Public Justice filed the complaint against Perry that led to his indictment on coercion and abuse of authority. The Republican governor is charged with trying to force the Democratic Travis County district attorney from office by threatening

Obama Mideast strategy

PRESIDENT OBAMA again appeared to dismiss the conflicts of the Middle East at a fundraiser Friday, saying the region has “been challenging for quite a while” and that “things are much less dangerous now than they were 20 years ago, 25 years ago or 30 years ago.” That may or may not be a valid analytical point, but it is not one the U.S. president should be making, as was brought vividly home when a video apparently depicting the brutal beheading of another American journalist was released Tuesday by the Islamic State. The barbaric murder of Steven J. Sotloff gave Mr.

Today, U.S. Representative and Senate Candidate, Bill Cassidy M.D., announced receiving the endorsement of Dr. Ben Carson. “As a fellow physician, Dr. Carson knows first-hand that Obamacare cannot and will not work for patients,” said Dr. Cassidy. “Dr. Carson is doing the American people a great service not only by informing them of the damage that Obamacare is doing to our healthcare system, but by laying out positive alternatives. I have great respect for Dr. Carson’s medical work, and look forward to working with him to repeal and replace Obamacare with common-sense reforms to ensure that every American has access to

Legal questions complicate Dem´s
exit from Kansas Senate race
The Hill [DC], by Alexandra Jaffe    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/4/2014 10:33:43 AM     Post Reply
Despite filing papers with the Kansas secretary of State withdrawing from the Senate race late Wednesday, Democrat Chad Taylor may be stuck on the ballot this fall. Two election law statutes have raised questions about whether Taylor gave sufficient cause to remove himself from the ballot, and, if so, whether Democrats must ultimately choose a candidate to replace him. Kansas Republican Party Executive Director Clay Barker told The Hill that Taylor is now back on the secretary of State’s list of general election candidates, while a legal team analyzes the statutes. One statute declares that, except under specific circumstances, “no person who

Because it gives meaning to life, that’s why. It’s a commonplace to anyone who’s studied the rise of fascism, of which Islamofascism is the most recent variety. The main problem with democratic capitalism is that it’s so successful, and therefore very boring. A generation or two of European intellectuals bemoaned the great triumph of science and industry, which they portrayed as relentlessly stifling the human soul, burying us under a hill of material things. The Germans produced the most moving such literature — think Nietzsche, think Hesse, not accidentally the cult hero of the American revolt against materialism in the 1960s —

Barack Obama encouraged people to compare him to Abraham Lincoln. For instance, here’s the opening from a 2007 ABC News piece co-written by Jake Tapper: Standing outside the Historic Old State Capitol building where Abraham Lincoln gave a famous speech condemning slavery and calling for the United States to unite, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., a 45-year-old with two years of federal legislative experience under his belt, today announced that he will claim the mantle of Lincoln and as president heal a divided nation. The piece goes on: But most of all Springfield allowed Obama to immodestly and continuously compare himself to Lincoln. It was

Study: Typical Illegal Resident in
U.S. for More Than 12 Years
Wall Street Journal, by Laura Meckler    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/4/2014 5:20:12 AM     Post Reply
The number of people living in the U.S. illegally last year was steady at 11.3 million, the Pew Research Center reported Wednesday. But with the passing of time, the illegal population now has been in the U.S. much longer than was the case in previous years. In 2013, the typical undocumented resident had been living in the U.S. for 12.7 years, Pew found, up from a median of less than eight years a decade earlier. Those numbers could bolster the case made by many Democrats, and some Republicans, that the illegal immigration ­problem is not growing worse, and that those already

Prime real estate on the Mall, a world-famous architect—what could go wrong? Everything, it seems: The Eisenhower family hates Frank Gehry’s design and its ‘blizzard of tapestries.’ When the Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Commission set about creating a memorial to the 34th president, it sought a design that would be visually startling and would inspire future generations of schoolchildren learning for the first time about the boy from the plains of Kansas who rose to great heights as the commander of U.S. troops on D-Day. Honoring Eisenhower should be easy. He was a popular two-term president who drew little controversy, and depicting

   

 



 
From the Thousand Year
Reich to the Global Caliphate
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/4/2014 5:05:55 AM     Post Reply
First it was the Thousand Year Reich. Now it’s the Global Caliphate. The pattern is as simple as it is stark. It always begins with the unruly rabble-rousers. A curiosity at first, then a police problem, then a raised governmental eyebrow. Eventually, the rabble-rousers attract more rabble. Now the jails begin to fill. Then the streets. There is violence. Then the sympathizers appear, making the case that, well, when you think about it, the growing rabble has a point or two or three. Money starts to flow in from supporters as well as the sympathizers. The rabble rousers finally get

They’re here. We’re just not sure where. In July the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Refugee Resettlement released figures on the number of unaccompanied minors released to US sponsors. According to the Office of Refugee Resettlement 30,340 illegal immigrant children were secretly released to sponsors across the United States in the first six months of this year. That number has increased by 7,000 in the month of August to 37,477. The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) released information on the numbers of illegal immigrant children released to sponsors in the United States from January 1 until July 31, 2014.

VA Investigation Reveals Poor Care, Fake

WASHINGTON –A scathing report issued by the inspector general for the Department of Veterans Affairs confirmed that former military personnel faced persistent problems accessing care at the agency’s medical facilities and that staff faked reports indicating the appointments operation was running smoothly. Acting Inspector General Richard J. Griffin couldn’t, however, substantiate earlier reports that 40 deaths or more could be attributed to poor VA care, noting that the whistleblower who made the allegation “did not provide us with a list of 40 patient names.” Regardless, the patient experiences described in the report “revealed that access barriers adversely affected the quality of primary

“The status quo is unsustainable,” President Obama said of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict soon after taking office in 2009. “The status quo is unsustainable,” then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told AIPAC in March 2010. “The status quo is unsustainable and unacceptable,” United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon averred in 2013. This year, Secretary of State John Kerry, with his customary light touch, informed the Munich Security Conference: “Today’s status quo absolutely, to a certainty, I promise you 100-percent, cannot be maintained. It’s not sustainable.” What is usually meant by this assertion is something quite specific: that in the “occupied territories” of Gaza

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

Vice President Joe Biden delivered a passionate speech at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire, vowing to bring Islamic State terrorists to justice. Mentioning the deaths of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, Biden referred to the Islamic State terrorists as “barbarians” for beheading them on camera. "If they think the American people will be intimidated, they don´t know us very well,” Biden said, reminding the crowd that the United States came back after 9/11 and defeated Osama bin Laden. “When people harm Americans we don’t retreat, and we don’t forget,” he said. “They should know, we will follow them

Maybe the news that a second American has been beheaded will force President Obama to recognize he has no more compelling priority today than stopping the Islamic State and its bloodletting. In its latest barbarity, ISIS aimed to project American weakness to the world. Just before he beheaded Steven Sotloff, the ISIS executioner explained the butchery this way: I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State, because of your insistence on continuing your bombings.?.?. So just as your missiles continue to strike our people, our knife will continue to strike the necks of your

Up to 70 veteran USA Today journalists, editors, and others were laid off Wednesday, and reports claim that the newly unemployed were "marched out by security" and within 15 minutes had their email accounts shut off. The layoffs came as no surprise after the Gannett Company followed the lead of many other companies that have already separated and spun off their dying publishing business into separate companies. It was only a few weeks ago that Gannett did the same. USA Today is Gannett´s flagship publication and enjoys the highest circulation of any other American newspaper. Nonetheless, The New York Times reports that

FRIENDSHIP, Maine -- Imagine Cape Cod without cod. Maine without lobster. The region´s famous rocky beaches invisible, obscured by constant high waters. It´s already starting to happen. The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters. Black sea bass, blue crabs and new species of squid - all highly unusual for the Gulf - are turning up in fishermen´s nets. The Gulf of Maine´s warming reflects broader

Legendary comedienne Joan Rivers died on Thursday — exactly a week after she was rushed to a Manhattan hospital when she stopped breathing during a routine throat procedure, sources told The Post. She was 81. Rivers’ daughter, Melissa, had been keeping vigil by her mother’s bedside at Mount Sinai Hospital as her condition failed to improve since she went into cardiac arrest on Aug. 28 at Yorkville Endoscopy. She was moved from the intensive care unit to a private room on Wednesday. The State Health Department has launched an investigation into the clinic.

The home-cooked meal has long been romanticized, from ’50s-era sitcoms to the work of star food writer Michael Pollan, who once wrote, “far from oppressing them, the work of cooking approached in the proper spirit offered a kind of fulfillment and deserved an intelligent woman’s attention.” In recent years, the home-cooked meal has increasingly been offered up as the solution to our country´s burgeoning nutrition-related health problems of heart disease and diabetes. But while home-cooked meals are typically healthier than restaurant food, sociologists Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott, and Joslyn Brenton from North Carolina State University argue that the stress that

The White House issued special praise for drugstore chain CVS for its decision to stop selling tobacco products. The chain announced the move in conjunction with changing its name to CVS Health. CVS had planned to stop selling tobacco Oct. 1, but bumped the day up to Wednesday. “Along with the start of CVS Health, the sale of cigarettes and tobacco products at CVS/pharmacy ends today,” Larry J.

Rudy Giuliani has plans to change golf. The former mayor, a strategic adviser to the PGA, says he wants to make the game “simpler” by shortening rounds to 12 holes. “We have to make it simpler and easier. Let’s shorten the course and make playing 12 holes instead of 18 holes the norm,” Giuliani declared in a Hamptons magazine cover story with golfer Raymond Floyd. “I’ve played tennis for 20 years, and I’ve never played five sets like the pros do,” he explained. “I’ll play three sets with my pals. So why play 18 holes? That’s what pros do to win tournaments.” Giuliani
