After more than nine weeks of trying to reconcile their story line with that of the State Department and the CIA, the Pentagon finally released its timeline of the Libya terror attack during a Friday afternoon, off-camera briefing with an official who could only be quoted anonymously. The news was overtaken almost immediately by the announcement that Gen. David Petraeus had resigned, purportedly due to an extramarital affair. He was slated to testify in closed-door hearings on Capitol Hill this coming week before the Senate and House intelligence committees. Petraeus no longer plans to testify.
The ongoing MSM/Obama campaign will now identify, target and destroy scapegoats. One does suspect that covering-up for His Majesty will be difficult for another full four years, but on the other hand the electorate doesn´t really care, do they? The truth about Obama´s role in Benghazi will be whitewashed, and we will all move on.
The scandals of Benghazi (lack of security, the CIA contingent gathering arms and Obama´s video lies) died with Petraeus´ resignation. As of Friday afternoon, 4 deaths in the desert became Obama´s first sex scandal. From now on, it´s Broadwell not Benghazi. And after the videos of her are exhausted, the issues will go away.
The only thing that will keep this scandal alive would be NY Times article on how Valerie Jarrett arranged for the publisher for Broadwell´s book. And how Val Jar encouraged favorable reviews. However, pro-Obama Times would never rat on a pro-Obama publishing house or Obama loving book critics. Plus, Broadwell is an Obama Democrat. An exposé would be treason.
Petraeus was being blackmailed, not by enemies of our nation- that was the initial concern- but by our OWN government. Obama knew months ago. A massive treasonous cover-up. Impeachment is imperative for the safety of our country. We have found the enemy and he is within. God help us.
Fact--CIC and National Security Council did not issue an alert for the region (NoAfrica and MiddleEast) prior to 9/11.
Fact--the commander of AFRICOM whose area includes all the Arab Spring countries was at the Pentagon on 9/11.
Fact--The only military assests Dempsey and Panetta (despite meeting with Zero, Biden, and National Security Adviser Donilon minutes into the massacre) ordered deployed into Libya were unarmed drones...what, to get video of the massacre?
Fact--intercepts w/n two hours of the attack identified the group that executed it, and indicated Tripoli was a target, so it was criminally insane to pull a team from Tripoli, which included Doherty who was slain, to go to the aid of Benghazi, as opposed to sending a military team to Benghazi, and and another to re-enforce protection of the Americans in Tripoli...
Fact--this timeline does not detail position of Naval and land based aircraft in the Med or Sosuthern Europe.
Obama certainly could be impeached by the House, but the trial is in the Senate, which will never convict him (even if there is video evidence of Obama cheering on the terrorists and ordering an airdrop of weapons to them).
To date no retaliatory strikes have taken place,..
...and one nutjob amateur "filmmaker" is in jail in America for exercising his First Amendment rights. Please explain how either of these events, or non-events, has solved the problem, made things, better or can keep things from getting worse, both here and in Libya?
Our enemies are now emboldened by our inaction and our failure to retaliate or even to rescue our own people! They already know we´ve been weakened by Obama and his Administration. Now they also know we don´t have the stomach to even come to the aid of our own people.
The normal response by our enemies is the following: make a bolder attack at America´s forces elsewhere in the world and even on our own continental soil.
President Jarrett, decidedly Muslim-sympathetic, will clear the path for Sharia Law in America by allowing all Muslim attackers and infiltrators full access and protection.
After all, she did say, "It´s our turn now", and she is Iranian-born. You really think she won´t trample white Judeo-Christian values, as Obama has done, in favor of Muslim interests?
And Hillary says she is just too busy to testify. That wretched woman is a disgrace; she has a duty to testify. She said she takes full responsibility; just words. If she has nothing to hide and thinks she did a good job, she definitely needs to tell the American people and the parents of the four dead Americans that she would not give aid when they begged for help. Hillary is a coward and probably a liar.
Without a curious MSM, Fox will not be able to get much further with this, I dont believe. It will be talked about and all say how we should have done more, yada yada. The Petraeus complication, and to me blurring of the story, will suck the oxygen from the real facts of what happened. Obama acted out of politics, the rest are so busy covering their butts, that it is all going to fade away. Makes me so angry I can´t see straight.
The consensus in many quarters is that the Libyan mission was being used to run guns and jihad militants through Turkey to Syria. If so, this handicapping of our military options makes sense. They would not want boots on the ground uncovering the operation that is arming those who are fighting and killing our soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq. Can you imagine the leaks and outrage? No, it would have to be handled by CIA, directed by their puppet leader Petraeus, who was hamstrung by their newly revealed hold over him. Look at what O has done in Egypt and Libya; more of same in Syria. Hope this theory doesn´t prove true.
#8, impeachment is a two-step process. The House begins by determining if there are sufficient charges and if so votes to impeach. Clinton, for example, was impeached by the House. The trial for removal from office then takes place in the Senate. And in Clinton´s case (as would be the case for Obama, with a Democrat-controlled Senate), there was no removal from office.
Impeachment? That is just wishful thinking. How quickly we forget about what just happened last Tuesday. America does not care about this. They only care about what others have that they don´t have, and how can they get it from them. Obama will get away with Benghazi, and he will get away will 4 more years of putting it to anyone he disagrees with. The Obama administration feels they were given a mandate for whatever they want to do. Sadly they basically got that mandate from a completely ignorant, selfish electorate.
There´s a bit of difference with Clinton and hussein. Clinton´s deal did not end with the death of Americans. I believe there are enough True Americans even in the Senate that if given indisputable facts about F&F and Benghazi, they would be compelled to vote or conviction against hussein.
Even with Clinton, several Senators were shown some very, very incriminating documents that were enough to convince some senators to convict, but as Oren Hatch(?) said the consensus was that the consequences and repercussions were just too great.
That might be the case here. No doubt that riots and chaos would ensue, but that in itself should not be the deciding factor. The criminal element of hussein´s reign should be the basis of conviction.
The critical question is, do these senators have the guts to stand up for our liberties?
FYI: A conviction requires 2/3 of senate members PRESENT which must be sufficient for a quorum which requires one more than half the members. If only 51 senators showed up for the vote, it would only take 34 votes to convict. If all 47 repubs, (present count) and 2 indies showed up and only 21 demns, the 47 could convict. Not likely, but possible.
The whole disgusting mess started with the Hildebeast´s Stateless Department, who refused extra security in the first place. It was more important that the military support group along with their airplane was needed in Jamica for a youth field day.
One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
The New York City Police Department (NYPD) is sending out letters telling gun owners to turn over their rifles and shotguns — or else face the consequences. New York City’s ban on rifles and shotguns that hold more than five rounds is now being enforced, according to a letter the NYPD is sending out to targeted city gun owners. “It appears you are in possession of a rifle and/or Shotgun (listed below) that has an ammunition feeding device capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition. Rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than five (5) rounds of ammunition are
PEARL HARBOR, HAWAII – About 3,000 people are expected to gather at Pearl Harbor on Saturday to commemorate the anniversary of the 1941 Japanese attack that launched the U.S. into World War II. About 70 World War II veterans and survivors of the Dec. 7 bombing plan to attend the morning ceremony on the shore overlooking a memorial to the USS Arizona battleship that sank during the attack. The event will begin with a traditional Hawaiian blessing. There will be a moment of silence at 7:55 a.m., the minute the bombing began 72 years ago. A guided missile destroyer will pass by
Senior defense officials are defending the decision to have fighter jets escort St. Nick this year on the North American Air Defense Command’s Santa tracker website. The NORAD website each December posts videos of Santa Claus entering different countries and cities around the world. This year, some of the videos will show fighter planes escorting the sleigh, a decision that has drawn criticism from the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood and others. But a senior defense official traveling this week with Secretary Chuck Hagel as he visited Bahrain said the military escorts for Santa are necessary given “the proliferation of air defense
Well whaddya know: The topic of impeachment reared its head at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday. Jonathan Strong’s report here at NRO noted the wincing consternation of GOP-leadership aides at utterances of the “i-word” during the testimony of prominent legal experts. For the Republican establishment, it seems, history begins and ends in the 1990s: No matter how times have perilously changed, any talk of shutdowns or impeachment is bad, bad, bad. Yes, the Obama “uber-presidency,” as left-of-center law professor Jonathan Turley called it, has enveloped the nation in what he conceded is “the most serious constitutional crisis .
Senate majority leader Harry Reid tells the Reno Gazette Journal that the Affordable Care Act has made his health insurance a lot les affordable: "[U]nder Obamacare, my insurance costs me about $4,500 more that it did before. Yes, because it is age-related and it wasn’t like that before.” Reid isn´t exactly hurting for cash, but leading Democrats once promised that Obamacare would bring down the cost of insurance for everyone: "If you already have health insurance, the only thing that will change for you under this plan is the amount of money you will spend on premiums," Barack Obama said
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
