(Video) Obama dodges question
on denial of help for Americans
in Benghazi

Washington Times, by Kerry Picket

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/26/2012 9:20:13 PM

President Barack Obama appeared on Colorado's KUSA's 9 News on Friday and was asked by reporter Kyle Clark if the Americans who were killed at the U.S. consulate in Beghazi were denied help during the terrorist attack and if it was fair to "tell Americans that it is still under investigation and that we'll all find out after the election." President Obama never answered that question and managed to repeat his "three directives" several times. Transcript below (bolding is mine) PRESIDENT OBAMA: The election has nothing to do with four brave Americans getting killed and us

Comments:
Finally a reporter asks 0bama the pertinent question about Benghazi. We here could have written what his response would be. Spin, spin and more lies and spin. By the look on 0bama's face he did not appear to be happy about that leading question.

How can this NOT be about the election?

Don't we have the right to know if we have a COWARD and accomplice to MURDER running for president?

If you didn't hear Rush today read the transcript from his website entitled:

Are Some in the Chain of Command Still Haunted by Carter's Failed Rescue in 1979?

I have never been so angry at anything in my life...or as frightened that this madness could possibly continue for nother four years. (I have confidence in the "Chik-fil-A Underground"...we are legion.)

Hussein said: These are our folks... They were since they were killed.

He is not one of US. Obama was a Fullbright Fellow at Occidental College and this grant can only be held by foreigners. This is why The Donald offered 5 million for this College records.

They were and were denied help in order to keep a narrative that Obama killed Osama and al-Qaida is finished.

Good job from this kid and especially from Jennifer Griffin. Fox News will have an updated Bret Baier program of the killings of Americans in Behghazi tomorrow and repeated twice on Sunday. The "Innocence of Muslims" Video was timed perfectly, even though its author is rotting in Federal Prison in Los Angeles.

Barack Obama gave the old "barn door" defense, that is he ordered whoever to close the "barn door" after the horse ran out of the barn.

Obama admitted that he send those murdered Americans and a lot of others to a very dangerous place, Benghazi, Libya, with what most people now recognize as no adequate force protection in the form of trained American security personnel, the result of that bad decision being four murdered Americans.

Did any help arrive ?
That's the answer.
Obama as Commander in Chief vetoed a rescue plan .
Period. End.
The father of Tyrone Woods says that the White House murdered his son.
Cannot disagree.
Cindy Sheehan was the star of every media outlet.
Judge Woods should get the same courtesy.
Amazingly, only FOX will give him the time of day...
And other than FOX, no one else
is touching the story of the drunken and extremely loud Vice President of the United States trying to engage the grieving father
in a discussion
of his dead son's private parts.
Just feet from his flag draped coffin.
This administration is the most repugnant and loathsome group of evildoers in US history.

Patience being a virtue, ten days after his humiliating election defeat would be soon enough to see Obama, Leon Panetta, Valerie Jarrett, and Hillary escorted onto a US Marshall's bus in handcuffs headed for some refreshing (and memory jogging) water activity.

Obama pulled a Putin.

Twenty-three sailors out of 118 survived the initial explosions on the Kursk. Offers of help from the US and Britain were refused. Several days later the sailors died of asphyxiation.

0bama's evasiveness is tantamount to an admission of guilt.

I agree with others comments that he looked stoned or something. Has anyone else noticed that when he's trying to sound "American" he borrows "Bushisms" like calling people "folks"? When George called people folks, it sounded natural, that's the way he talks. Not so with Hussein.

The local guy asked the question that ABC-CBS-NBC-CNN needs to be asking "Were these Americans under attack denied help?" and when the president wasn't forth coming the reporter asked again. And the president dissembled both times. He said he immediately gave the order to secure our personnel and I believe I heard he did do that....however, it was for other American embassies in the area.

#15 I am struck by Obama's use of the word Folks too. Rush was talking about that yesterday. Terrorists referred to as folks? Like The Baile Folklorico perhaps? Folks in bright costumes and dancing about with AK 47s and Mortars to Mariachi music? Or maybe River Dancers? How inappropriate is that??? Obviously Obama will resort to any verbal contortions to avoid referring to his "folks" as terrorists. He is disgusting.

"Mr. President, we know for a fact that help was requested by those in the embassy.
Was that help sent?"

A blogger pointed this out in the last debate. Notice how many times Obama is blinking when he talks! It's a sign of lying and certainly being discomforted. Re-watch the video in this article (even if your stomach makes you turn the volume off) and note how many times this man blinks. It's WAY out of the ordinary. Could he be annoyed by "the Light"? "For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed." (John 3:20)

He bulls****d his way through the interview.

Kyle asked great questions but the answers could have used follow-up.

For instance, "The Dept of Energy is a cabinet level dept under the control and supervision of the Secretary of Energy (Steven Chu) who is a political appointee of yours. How does your answer absolve you of involvement in the matter of who gets stimulus money?"

That's one thing I've noticed about Dims. When asked a question that they have no answer to or don't want to answer truthfully (if they ever could), they immediately change the subject or the tone on the conversation. "The question that really needs to be asked...." or "as I've said many time before....". You get the picture. A full and trug
truthful answer will NEVER be coming forth. They simply aren't capable of telling the truth.

RIP, Net Neutrality
Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/23/2014 8:00:57 PM     Post Reply
To paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of net neutrality’s death have been greatly exaggerated in the past. But this time, it may actually be true. The New York Times is reporting that the Federal Communications Commission is proposing new rules that would allow internet service providers to charge large content providers to faster access to users, effectively killing the existing system that ensured equality for all. The move is a reversal for the FCC, which previously aimed to keep net neutrality in place even after a federal appeals court ruled in January that internet providers were allowed to make preferential service deals

A South Carolina man who was arrested after strolling through a Walmart in the middle of the night wearing only black sneakers has blamed the awkward incident on some methamphetamine he had mistakenly ingested. The incident occured just before midnight last Thursday, after employees at the Tega Cay Walmart spotted Kevin Hughes, 36, walking naked in the Health and Beauty section, reports WBTV. When the cops arrived they found Hughes shopping in the Electronic department. He was arrested for disorderly conduct and spent the night in jail.

Young adults who smoke marijuana may be at risk for serious or even fatal heart problems, according to a study by French researchers on Wednesday. The findings in the Journal of the American Heart Association raises new concerns about the safety of marijuana, just as many parts of the world are relaxing laws on its use and medicinal marijuana is gaining popularity for treating certain health conditions. The risk of heart complications appeared small in the study, which included nearly 2,000 people who sought medical attention for complications related to marijuana from 2006 to 2010. Of those, two percent, or 35 people, had

Illinois Democratic Gov.

Chicago Sun Times readers were stunned last week to find that writer Neil Steinberg has penned a column comparing black supporters of Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner to Jews who collaborated with the Nazis against their brethren. “As a general rule, individuals will sell out the interests of their groups in return for personal benefit,” Steinberg wrote in his column, which claimed that

Ted Cruz weighed in on the Cliven Bundy situation with Texas radio host Chad Hasty Tuesday, and he called the standoff between Bundy supporters (some armed) and federal agents a tragic situation, but one that was the “culmination” of how President Obama has been pushing for a bigger and more intrusive federal government. Cruz said that since Obama took over, “we have seen our liberty under assault” from a government “hell-bent on expanding its authority over every aspect of our lives.” He went after Obama for eroding the nation’s constitutional liberties and not understanding the point of the federal government is to

In a case about a pregnant woman who used cocaine and endangered her unborn child, the Alabama Supreme Court affirmed (8-1) that the word “child” includes “an unborn child,” and that the law therefore “furthers the State’s interest in protecting the life of children from the earliest stages of their development.” In his concurring opinion, Alabama Chief Justice Roy S. Moore wrote that “an unborn child has an inalienable right to life from its earliest stages of development,” and added, “I write separately to emphasize that the inalienable right to life is a gift of God that civil government must secure

Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) on Wednesday said he plans to introduce a bill to prevent Internal Revenue Service employees who are delinquent on their taxes from receiving bonuses. A report this week from the Treasury Department inspector general for tax administration found that the IRS had given more than $2.8 million in bonuses and other rewards to workers who had been cited for various types of misconduct, including a failure to pay their taxes. A Johnson aide said the congressman’s bill would prohibit the IRS from giving bonuses to employees who owe back taxes that are not caused by willful

Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday called Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s dissent in the Supreme Court’s latest affirmative action ruling “courageous.” At an event on diversity within the Justice Department, Holder said it’s tempting to think the struggle to overcome discrimination has ended when people like him or President Obama have reached the nation’s highest ranks. But, he said, the fight for equal rights is not over. "[This] great country still has a ways to go before our founding promise of equal justice and equal opportunity is fully realized,” he said.

So long, Ohio. According to a federal judge Monday in Henry v.

The circumstances surround same-sex marriage, though the precise legal issue is one that has been flying below the radar for some time – the recognition by one state of another state’s same-sex marriage. In the case, several same-sex couples with marriage licenses from California, Massachusetts, and New York sought recognition of their relationships in their home state of Ohio, where marriage is defined as between only one

Americans take electricity for granted. It powers our lights, our computers, our offices, and our industries. But misguided environmental policies are eroding the reliability of our power system. Last winter, bitterly cold weather placed massive stress on the US electrical system ? and the system almost broke.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Jeb Bush said Wednesday he´s "thinking about running for president," in his most direct statement yet about a possible 2016 run. The former Florida governor spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York Wednesday morning. He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president." The answer was met with applause and a standing ovation, after

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what
