Media Blackout:
Why Obama Dodged the Libya Question

Breitbart's Big Journalism, by John Nolte

Original Article

Posted By:Robinsolana, 10/27/2012 3:57:29 PM

President Obama ran into a buzzsaw yesterday while doing a round-robin of satellite interviews with local news outlets in crucial swing states -- and by "buzzsaw," I mean that rare form of species known as a "real reporter." Kyle Clark of Colorado's KUSA actually asked Obama about the latest revelations out of Libya. According to Fox News, the three requests for help made during the seven-hour attack on our consulate in Benghazi were met with orders from U.S. officials to "stand down." Wisely, Obama dodged this question entirely. I say "wisely" because,

Comments:
The NYT, WaPoo and the rest of the complicit mainstream media are attempting to embargo and ignore this outrageous story and run out the clock until the election. All to protect Obama from his outrageous betrayal of our soldiers on the ground in Benghazi.
According to one report, assets overhead were refused permission to fire to save our soldiers.

The president got Vegas and Benghazi confused. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, not Benghazi

Obama's convinced he can stonewall this until Nov 6.

Mr. Trump, this would be better use of your $5,000,000. In fact get with guys like Adelson and get it up to $10M or higer. Donate it if he answers three simple questions about Benghazi. Have Dr K write the questions for you and judge the answers. And if he refers the question, the President must order that person to answer.

''Mr President, $5Million for 3 questions! I.E. $5M for three minutes of your time.''

The Left derides the transcript pay off. But why would they deride this Libya question payoff for questions everyone agrees he should be answering anyway.

' This is nothing more than a replay of the John Edwards scandal, where the media ignored an extra-marital affair until Edwards' chances at being elected president disappeared. '' - article. It took a breakout story by the National Enquirer to get the press whores to even look at the Edwards story. I suppose it will take every family member of those who were killed speaking out no national TV for weeks to get them to start insisting on answers as to what happened and why nothing was done at the time. And then there's the coverup.

Does no one in the msm have a shred of pariotism. A shred of concern for our men and women in uniform.

Did the Navy SEALs not deserve more from this president.

He adopted their success as his own in killing OBL but now he's thrown them to the jihadist wolves.

The reason he dodged the question is because a truthful answer would show his blatant incompetence and complete lack of standing to be given another term. But, anyone paying any attention already knows that.

You know there was only a handful of people at Issa's hearing on this a couple weeks ago. If Waxman was holding a hearing,the floor would have been covered with cameraman and hoards of media types. This election is not only beating Obama but the media.But they're not going to go down without a fight.Now they've gone back to Romney being a flip flopper because his general election message is different than the primary one,like this has never been done before.

The real battle in this election is cynical people who thinks there's no difference on who wins.The republicans and business
haven't done enough to prove and demonstrate Obama has intentionally been killing jobs.

The other problem is people generally think the president and media aren't allowed to lie. The rock they been living under has several coats of of moss on it.

It's nice to see Romney drawing big crowds of honest people as opposed to Obama and union thugs and college students.

Obama supporters don't care about this. They want him re-elected no matter what. If this was a Republican administration the screaming and outrage from the Media and the left would be deafening. The Democrats involved will burn in he11 for what they have done.

The Jurassic media blackout has not held. The Benghazi Betrayal is out. The Obama presidency will fall in an election blowout. Democrats will call foul because Sandy distorted turnout, but the election will stand.

Americans will tolerate a lot of incompetence and chicanery in their government, but when brave men are betrayed in the field to cover cowardliness in DC, the long knives come out.

The White House itself is also being careful about not making news. This is why no statement was released denying the Fox News report. If the Administration issues a denial, the CorruptMedia will be forced to cover the denial, which in turn will call attention to the story.

Bingo. The WH just needs to run out the clock until the election while this media cesspool goes along with it. But why? What is it about anything this POTUS has done for the country that they want more of?

Or is it the promise of what O will do for them in a second term that makes them foolishly believe they will get special treatment from a man who watches our own citizens die and does nothing? They actually trust him?

When in the history of America has there been more evil perpetrated against our own citizens by the press and by an Administration? Yes, evil. Not simply misdirection, immorality or incompetence.

It's sheer evil.

I have been posting this every chance I get and I hope others will join me.

I believe each and every one of us should be hitting as many news outlets' websites as possible and make comments - even copy some of the wonderful comments on this page - I think every one of us should do this every day until the election results are announced. I think we should absolutely drown them in our comments - leave no doubt what we think of this travesty.

I believe we should be blistering to every comment that flatters the Administration until we KNOW what was and was not done and said. And I believe politeness has left us forever because no one in DC has earned one teeny bit of politeness.

Media must have SOME value. There will be more people hear us if we bang on THEIR door, and especially if we continually bang without letup.

I AM MAD.

It is certainly no revelation at this point that we have been waging a three-front cultural war against the socialization of the United States - so...the war will rage on between us and the face of liberalism, the msm, and the intelligencia.

The fact that someone is offering the President of the United States $5 million to tell the truth is beyond sad. And it's pathetic that that price is too low to get the truth from him. Can you imagine going to work tomorrow morning and being offered five times your annual salary just to be honest?

Yes #15, let's do it. Every day I posted this on another thread this AM:
I sent the following to every local paper I know, here in MN and back home in Iowa:

"Our press has become so terribly biased that they'd see the country go down in flames before standing up to democrats. I'm including a link to an excellent article on the Bengazi nightmare written by Col. Ken Allard.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/oct/27/obama-knew-about-attack-ignored-three-requests-hel/

Here's a stunning line: "Each time, they were shamefully turned down. One of those defenders, Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, was apparently able to use a laser designator to pin-point the location of the mortar that eventually killed him. It would have been an easy shot for American pilots had any been ordered to respond."

This administration stood by and let these brave Americans be slaughtered, even though we had resources, eager and capable, that could have stopped this. How do these people sleep at night?

If they were willing to let this go down, what else are they capable of? Why does the DHS have 1.4 billion rounds of ammo? Why is NASA now a muslim outreach program? Walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, might be a duck. The press is supposed to inform the public, not deceive it. The truth please, if not now, when? When it's too late? You live in the same country we do, and one of the first things totalitarians do is eliminate free press, oops, as if we have one. And, in AMERICA. How very sad and shameful."

What Really Happened -- Benghazi

Situation Room

September 12, 30 a.m.

LEON PANETTA: [to aide] Call the Residence. Put it on speaker.
MICHELLE: Who is this? It’s three o’clock!
PANETTA: Leon Panetta, Ma’am. We need the president in the Situation Room ASAP.
MICHELLE: He’s busy. He couldn’t sleep, so he’s been playing Ragnarök II—the Awakening on his Xbox. His forces are in the middle of a decisive action. Can’t you handle the problem?
PANETTA: Uh, no Ma’am.
MICHELLE: Oh for God’s sake. [yells] Barack! Pick up! Panetta wants you right now!
OBAMA: Jeez, Leon. What’s so important? I’m in the middle of breaching Rozamin’s redoubt, which would set the Outliers back on their heels for months.
PANETTA: Trouble, sir. Benghazi. We. ...
OBAMA: Ben Ghazi? The Israeli Defense Minister?
PANETTA: No, sir. The consulate in Libya. It’s under siege; the ambassador and his team are in danger. Big decisions must be made soon if we’re to. …
OBAMA: Leon, it took me forever to mount an attack on Castle Covenant. And you want me to suspend the battle to hang around the Situation Room for hours watching real time video that means absolutely nothing to me? Once with bin Laden was enough.
PANETTA: Sir, we’ll need you to authorize action to. . . .
OBAMA: Leon, I authorize you to do whatever successfully resolves the situation. If it blows up in our faces, it’s on you. I was out of the loop. Got it?
PANETTA: Yes, sir.

[Michelle in background] Barack! Zulu 4 is in. They want to know if they should proceed to the Chamber of the Gods.

OBAMA: Gotta go, Leon. My people need me. I'm sleeping in. Call back around noon.

Unless we find a way to force the MSM to do their job this will continue to be a non story to the majority of America. Everyone must contact the networks and demand they do their job. This is up to all of us to shame the media into doing what is right.

The original article is well written concise and to the point . However Robinsolana misses some important facts. Those facts have to stick to the wall before the upcoming election. Getting to the nitties watching the ongoing Drone pictures at the White House were Biden, Panetta. Obama.Probably other Military present. These were known to be watching the on stream video and text. So these individuals knew hour by hour what was going on. The predicament of the Ambassador, the Three Consulate safety personnel and 35 other Consulate employees situated in the Main Section of the Consulate. Mr Steven a marine was at that time in an annex about one mile away.Three requests for help were made to the White House . State Department and CIA.Gen.Petraeus head of the CIA stated categorically that his agency had not given any directives to Benghazi . In any case authenticated Commands would originate from the White House and would by law issued by the Commander in Chief.Fox News will be airing two programs Sunday related to Benghazi and with the latest updates.

Not really seeing much, if any, comments on taking this whole thing one step further which should be the job of this Knee-Pad media. What will he do when Israel is attacked? Can he be bothered? Will he be on vacation? Will he take a few months to think about it? What will this President do if this country is attacked (which it essentially was in Benghazi)? We need to seriously consider questions like that because our enemies surely are!

The media will obfuscate, ignore, and downplay this story and pretend it doesn't exist until at least a while after the election. Then, no matter who wins, they will slowly begin breaking the story as if its only recently begun trickling out and it's the first they've heard of it. By that time anger will have died a bit and they can try and convince themselves and everyone else that they report "all the news". Despicable. They should be ashamed of themselves. Lower than slime.

After theelection the story will be gone No matter who wins there will be no coverage, hearings, or news conference.
Every one will just move on. Like Prager says, being leftist means never having to say your sorry.
Unfortunately the GOP just doesn't have it to fight back.
In my area, the town of 300K has a paper. I don't know the circulation but the Benghazi story was AP one on A-18, it was ok, but incomplete and old news.
Page A 18! After the election it will be next to crossword puzzle.

WASHINGTON - The White House on Saturday flatly denied that President Barack Obama withheld requests for help from the besieged American compound in Benghazi, Libya, as it came under on attack by suspected terrorists on September 11th. "Neither the president nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi," National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told Yahoo News by email.

The Benghazi debacle has three parts: how we neglected security while al-Qaeda was building a presence in Libya; whether the administration tried to mislead the public as to the nature of the attack; and now whether the administration denied pleas for help from operatives on the ground at the consulate. Now, presumably at the behest of Gen. David Petraeus — who has been remarkably tight-lipped and not defended his agency against White House accusations that senior officials’ misstatements were the fault of the CIA — the CIA threw the hot potato right back in the politicians’ laps.

Crushing Obama’s Hopes

Mitt Romney has opened up a clear lead over Barack Obama in their presidential race. That owes a great deal to the candidates’ debate performances, of course. But something else is going on, too. In recent days, Obama’s approval rating has taken a perceptible hit. Via the Weekly Standard, we see that in the Rasmussen survey, only 47% approve of Obama’s job performance, while 52% disapprove. There are two plausible explanations for Obama’s current slide: voters may be disgusted by the mean, petty campaigning he is running, or they may disapprove of his handling of the Benghazi crisis. Or both.

'Stand Down': U.S. Had Two Drones,

Reports indicate two drones and an AC-130 gunship were in the area when Benghazi was attacked, yet their resources were not used. This runs completely against the current explanation coming out of the White House, which is that Obama did everything he could once he learned of the attack. You'll remember that in the second presidential debate, Obama said that as "soon as I was aware the Benghazi consulate was being overrun, I was on the phone with my national security team." The not-so-subtle intimation is that Obama was stepping up to the protect the U.S. personnel who were in Libya.

Joseph Dunford as assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced Thursday. Both appointments must be confirmed by the Senate.

The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.

Washington — Obama administration officials defended their response to the September attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, amid new claims that the White House failed to send help quickly enough as militants overran the mission. The U.S. ambassador and three other Americans died in the hourslong battle. Fox News reported that security officers working for the CIA in Benghazi heard the attack on the consulate but were twice told to wait before rushing to the compound. Fox also reported that U.S. officials refused when the security team asked for U.S. warplanes

Controversial Muslim preacher, feared Turkish intriguer—and “inspirer” of the largest charter school network in America. With the American economy in shambles, Europe imploding, and the Middle East in chaos, convincing Americans that they should pay attention to a Turkish preacher named Fethullah Gülen is an exceedingly hard sell. Many Americans have never heard of him, and if they have, he sounds like the least of their worries.

Jeb Bush to make decision
on 2016 by the end of this year

56 replie(s)
Washington Post, by Ed O´Keefe    Original Article

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that he will base his decision on whether to run for president in 2016 on whether he thinks he can mount a campaign that would transcend the modern-day mechanics of such a run. Bush, the second-oldest son of former president George H. W. Bush and younger brother of George W. Bush, spoke at an event marking the 25th anniversary of his father´s presidency at the library and museum that bears the patriarch´s name. The event was closed to reporters, but moderated by Fox News anchor Shannon Bream and portions of the event were later

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush said Sunday that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an "act of love" for their families and should be treated differently than people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas. The comments came during an event marking the 25th anniversary of the presidency of George H. W. Bush at the library and museum that bears the name of the Bush patriarch.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

In Dearborn, Mich., home to over 40,000 Americans of Arab descent, some Muslim parents have complained about flyers handed out at public schools advertising an Easter egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The Muslim parents assert that the flyers – emblazoned with the word “Eggstravaganza!” – violate the separation of church and state widely ascribed to the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, reports the Detroit Free Press. Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools. The “Eggstravaganza!” is scheduled to take place on April 12 event at Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

Wellington -He may be only eight months old. But Prince George made an assured appearance on his debut royal tour this morning. Arriving in New Zealand on the first day of a three-week trip Down Under, the third in line to the throne took the windswept welcome in his stride, although he looked a little chilly in a cream jumper and shorts. Scroll down for video -With a lifetime of royal engagements ahead of him, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are understandably protective of their young son. Indeed, his appearance today was only the second time he has been

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market
