Stand Down Obama and
Biden, Stand Down

American Thinker, by Clarice Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 10/28/2012 5:55:01 AM

Normally, I have no difficulty writing this column. I see it as a way to provide busy readers a coherent narrative of the best of the week's most important news -- largely as reported by the alternative media and ignored by its richer, fatter and lazier media opposition. This week is sadly different. The latest news coming out about the murder of our ambassador and three other brave Americans in Ben Ghazi is so horrifying and shocking I can take no pleasure in writing about it. It's still largely unreported by the legacy media.

Clarice Feldman at her most lucid (and that's saying something).

In all my years I have never seen such dishonorable conduct by some many so high in government.

Yes, Mr. President, do at least one honorable thing in your sordid career. Stand down.

Here's our question to the repulsive Joe BiteME, who asked the father of his murdered son if his son 'always had balls the size of cue balls' - Mr. VP, have you always had a brain the size of a peanut?

Well stated, Clarice!
This really is a crass, vulgar, disingenuous, disrespectful, uncaring, prevaricating bunch of marxist weasels that lie about their lying and plunge to new depths everyday.

Clarice's last few lines make me want to stand up and cheer.

Every time I think that the level of corruption, cowardice and sheer vulgarity of this entire Administration has reached its apex, there is yet another outrage to top the last. It's staggering.

As more is revealed I believe the charge of treason will be warranted. It remains to be seen if fellow Americans who know what happened (and why) have the courage to speak out.

NY Post has the whole story online... CIA announced the Stand Down was not from them... Last night, the WH blogged that they did not order the Stand Down, essentially blaming the military !

Petraeus is on Meet The Press this am... I can't see him sit idly by as the WH blames his brethren. Hope he makes news.

I'll bet Valerie Jarrett's fingerprints are all over this. After all, she controls Barry. I heard a Republican criticizing the administration, and Axelrod had the audacity to say that the Rep. had no business talking about it since he had never served in the military. Well, neither have Obama, Hillary, or Valerie or Rice and I am not sure about Pannetta.

Panetta’s bios says he served in the Army from ’64 to ’66. But who really knows? Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) lied about serving in Vietnam but the voters elected him anyway. Sen. Mark Kirk (D-IL) was caught lying about his military record but was elected anyway. I figure Panetta has an embellished military resume. He had lots of training in the art of ambiguity and spin as Slick Willy’s WH chief of staff from ’93-’97. Most Dem politicians are dishonorable liars, yet they are continually elevated to higher office by voters or presidential appointments.

Leon Panetta was a not very good Congressman by ANY standard, for longer than he should have been. He is, was and will always be a nothing-burger-bureaucrat looking for a place to land. IMHO, he has no more business being Secretary of Defense than Gen. Petraeus has being CIA Director. Which, BTW is most likely why they were both appointed to those positions.. Thanks for the info #10, we'll be watching to see what the General says, or even more important does NOT say about the latest debacle of the criminal-enterprise, A/K/A the obama-administration..

Excellent column. Excellent headline.

The natural instincts of any decent human being who sees anyone, even an animal, in danger is to do whatever they can to help. We hear countless stories of heroes, from the very young to the very old, coming to the aid of those in harm's way. We hear stories of animals heeding their instincts to come to the aid of those in danger. But, this cold, calculating, self-serving "leader" of the free world, who has the power to say the word and send help to anyone anywhere, without harm to himself, refused help to those whom it is his duty to protect, and prevented others, over whom he has power, from doing their duty and following their instincts to help our own.

We, the people in this country, still have the power to elect our leaders. We have the power to hold them accountable. This country is in as much in danger of being destroyed, under our current leadership, as that consulate in Benghazi. We have One who watches over all of us in real time, and has the ultimate power to save us. May we humbly turn to him for help, wisdom, and guidance to save our country, just as our founders and framers did to build it. And, may we do what is right in his sight.

That the media - whose job it is to hold the government's feet to the fire - is complicit in the administration's attempts to make Benghazi disappear disgusts me.
Nowadays we must fend for ourselves on the internet since honesty is being buried by those who traditionally have been entrusted to find and tell us the truth.

"Stand Down, Obama and your administration. All of you. Stand Down. You've failed to carry out your responsibilities of office. You treated American lives, including that of an ambassador -- the official representative of your country -- with utter disregard for their safety. You've lied to us about this tragedy so many times and in so many ways you can no longer credibly lead. You're crass and vulgar and without regard for truth, law or common decency and deserve to be drummed out of office."

Could not say it better.

Amen, #19. Your words will stay with me through these next few trying days. We have issued our call for help at this time, with our humility and apologies for ignoring the True One in the past - it seems now as if our prayers and call for help may be answered. If not, we will have much more to do and very little time for it.

There is much analogy here....

I ***believe*** our highest Commander will come to our assistance in our time of national crisis. But we have to be true.

When President Romney takes office, he must not pull a Gerald Ford and pardon Obama.

For the record, I agree that Ford was right to pardon Nixon. I won't go into the reasons why, but suffice it to say - Nixon was no Obama. Nixon was a true patriot and loved our country.

This horrendous, murder of our Ambassador and three other Americans, which could have been prevented by a simple command to save them, must be prosecuted to the fullest extent.

As I have stated on other threads over the last two days, Obama and his cohorts are an accessory to murder, and their punishment should correspond to that crime. The famous picture of those who killed Lincoln being hanged comes to mind.

Make it your goal to get one person who you personally know, and who is not voting, to vote for Romney/Ryan. Or, to persuade one person who is voting for Obama, not to vote. If everyone of us does all of the above, we can get these dishonest, dishonorable, crude and un-American people out of our government. At least for awhile.

Start forwarding this piece to the MSM, especially the NYT and WaPo. Suggest that maybe, if they tried covering the news, or writing editorial pieces like this, they would have some credibility.

Since the MSM won't cover it, start tweeting the link to this story, and posting it on Facebook.

I didn't think anything Joe Bite Me could do would shock me, but what he said to Mr. Woods was sadly typical of this administration, and it is shocking.

Glad to see this is a 'Must Read' because...

...it is a must read. Clear. Insightful.

There are still details that have not been disclosed, for whatever reasons. Today, there was a link to a blog, closed for obvious and publicly posted reasons, that said that two Seals were responsible for saving 20 lives and killing 60 attackers before dying themselves. Doesn't that sound like the kind of detail we should have? Doesn't that sound like a little support could have made all the difference? What are the ROEs for staff?

Don't let this get buried and, yes, impeach. If there's truth to this: Impeach.

This catastrophe was followed 3 days later by an attack on a NATO air base in Afghanistan that resulted in the death of senior Marine Commander and the destruction on the ground of 8 Harrier jump jets. Our Commander in Chief is incapable of protecting our men and our assets. He needs to be voted out of office and then examined for criminal and civil charges.

#21, very good points. The Choomgangsta won’t even help his Aunt Zeituni and Uncle Onyango, both in the US illegally. Oh wait, they haven’t been deported yet and are still free loading, so he might have intervened somehow. And half brother George is still living in a shack in Kenya, Seems like a caring, compassionate CIC would at least bring his kinfolks into the WH and let them share free room and board with his mother-in law.

If he ignores his own flesh and blood, why would he care about anyone else, including protecting our own citizens from terrorist attacks, a la Benghazi?

Posters are wrong here. A bad military decision or even ignoring Americans in peril is not grounds for impeachment. 0bama has plenty of laws he has broken that ARE grounds for impeachment and they are being ignored. However, this kind of behavior routinely gets generals and other officers fired and as the (alleged) CIC 0bama MUST be fired this election. I'm wondering why there aren't people in the (smallish) crowds at 0bama rallies starting to call him a murderer.

The Benghazi abandonment of the ambassador is eerily similar to the scene in The Godfather where Don Corleone should have been surrounded by security but Michael found him in an empty hospital with assassins on the way. Who would want the ambassador dead or captured? The Libyans certainly didn't issue the orders to stand down. There is big treachery afoot here and the regime didn't have time to coordinate the lies.

I recall that the Black Hawk Down fiasco in Somalia under Clinton convinced the islamicists that America was a paper tiger. They believed that all that was necessary to make America run was a few casualties. This will renew them in that belief and encourage them to be more aggressive. They are going around bragging publicly about defeating America. It is only the useless president they have defeated but they will not understand that in their arrogance! Many more will die before the fallout of this failure to act is overcome!

I appreciate all of these elequent comments on an excruciatingly profound Clarice essay, because i am so angry and heartbroken that words come haltingly.

The total failure of establishment media to hound the BO regime for the truth is deplorable and an outrage against the Constitution.

The Founders had put so much trust in the media being the guardians of the People. What a joke are the old, tired, effete media... only FOX is an exception, but then, FOX is not really one of the "in crowd media."

There is, of course, the "new media" for which we are so grateful.

Sadly and dangerously, a great many people still rely on the establishment media. Their folly; our chagrin.

Liberty hangs in the balance when Truth is a worthless commodity for a majority of people. We need to demonstrate that TRUTH is the ESSENTIAL commodity.

The day after the murderous violence in Benghazi, Obama, with haggard Hillary by his side, makes a platitudinous speech about 9/11 and generalizes about terrorism. Then he flies off to Reno, etc., for fund-raising and campaigning, and days and days and nights, lots of 'em, of fun and frivolity on comedy shows.

--doesn't this say all we need to know about the man?

Important "specials" on FOX.

These walking talking full colostomy bags in the WH situation room remind me of what I used to tell my nubile daughters when they were dating. I would ask them if they knew how to tell when an adolescent boy was lying. They would usually respond negatively and I would tell them that his lip are moving. With the obama group, when they have sound coming out of their mouths and their lips are moving, you know that they are lying.

Why isn't there 24/7 media coverage ?
Shouldn't they be charged for aiding and abetting if they remain silent on such an important issue because they are in love with Zippy ?

Why isn't Congress up in arms ?

If nutty nancy can take a mike for anything else, why is she silent now ?

The Poverty Hoax
American Thinker, by John Dietrich    Original Article
Posted By: DW626- 4/8/2014 7:54:23 AM     Post Reply
A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

The clumsiness and incoherence, if not madness, of this administration’s foreign policies are creating havoc around the world. No one wrapped up the story of the chaos better than Sultan Knish did this week: When Bush left office at the end of his second term, the region was mostly stable aside from Iran’s nuclear program. By the time Obama had finished his first term, it was in a state of endless war. [snip] Bush had sought to stabilize the Middle East by removing Saddam. Obama instead destabilized it by trying to remove every government that was in any way friendly to the

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran. The one place we intervened was Iraq, with

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings. In one instance her team, which had certainly been invited in by Democrats

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

This week the big story was the tag end of the old JournoList gang trying to spin gold out of the dross of the Congressional Budget Report. The CBO report projected that by 2021 under ObamaCare more than 2 million full-time workers will find it financially advisable to quit work entirely or switch to part-time jobs in order to get more subsidies for healthcare insurance. To most of us who studied real economics or just paid attention to human nature, subsidizing indolence means you´ll get more of it.

This week to an ever-diminishing audience President Obama outlined a pedestrian plan for the remainder of this year, amidst the usual hornswoggle of invited guests in the gallery and dubious daytime TV style anecdotal stories of their lives. More popular than ever is the wish that we could return to State of the Union messages being delivered on paper to Congress. In the meantime my friend Ignatz, the genius Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) and even Vladimir Putin offered up some sage observations which underscore the rot at the heart of the administration and his party and the likely consequences of their

Apart from me, there is only one other non-Democrat I know of in my immediate D.C. neighborhood. Let´s call him John Doe, because he´s petrified that he´ll be the next target of this extra-constitutional gang from Chicago and wouldn´t want to see his name made public. I hadn´t seen him around for a while, but yesterday afternoon there was a knock on the back door.

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

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

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

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

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."

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

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.

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.

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,

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

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
