Slain SEAL’s father to Obama: ‘Better
to die the death of a hero than it is
to live the life of a coward’

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/29/2012 6:11:30 AM

In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Geraldo at Large” Sunday night, Charles Woods, father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, said President Barack Obama did not do all he could to save the four Americans who were killed in a terrorist raid on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Obama should have reacted sooner, he said, because the consulate was American soil. “I was contacted by military personnel yesterday, who told me an interesting fact. And that is any consulate anywhere in the world is American soil,” Woods said.

Well, I just watched Hussein on Morning Joe call it a 'tragedy', not terrorism. No follow up questions from Joe or Mika, just let him tell his lies. 26 minutes into Morning Joe and no other mentions of Benghazi. Of course.

Why this father would ever appear on the Geraldo program is beyond me!!!

Missed this program; but Geraldo has been on the morning programs telling the couch crew how Obama did a great job on Bengazi.
What bull.

Geraldo has his Obama kneepads on.

Obama has 8 more days to stall this story from reaching critical mass.Of course there's a willful ignorance on the left that plays into it also.

Following the rules set up by Liberals during the Bush years, this father's "moral authority" is "absolute" and he must be listened to...
Yeah, and liberals I know took down the "dissent is the highest form of patriotism" signs as soon as Obama was elected. Now it's "unpatriotic" to question the president.
And they cannot see the double standard here.

''Obama should have reacted sooner, he said, because the consulate was American soil.''

I'm surprised Mr. Woods didn't already know this - he says he's an attorney. My son (in the military currently) was FUMING about this, on that very day! Even before we learned about the Ambassador and the other 3 who had died in Benghazi, my son was ranting about the Islamists scaling the wall of our Cairo embassy, and burning our flag! ''That's American soil over there!! Why are we doing nothing about this?!!''

Of course, he KNEW why..... my son's, these men's, C-in-C is, and always has been, practicing taqqiya. (Ref. Lucianne.com 10/28/12 - http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=709205)

The father must have had further thoughts. He said just previously, he forgives Obama and Obama needs to turn his life around. Maybe it finally dawned on him what a travesty his son's death was and how he was betrayed.

Please let us not let this man get away with this- it's not a forged certificate, nor hidden school records.

It was obvious on O'Reilly's program the other night geraldo was sporting kneepads for obama....

BUT -- the Navy Seal's Dad is a hero himself -- for having the courage to speak out loud what the whole country knows....

His son was a hero -- and his president REFUSED to send him help when he needed it....

Beware America -- Navy Seal Tyrone Woods -- is just the first of many who will be thrown under the bus for obama.

40 years ago, when I was flying missions over Laos and a pilot was shot down, we went to rescue him. Immediately! We didn't wait for more info or a clear assesment, we went to rescue a fellow American and sometimes we lost people doing it. But we had a real President and a real SecDef back then.

Christian forgiveness is something in the heart and soul. Mr. Woods is living his faith, bless him. And he is right when he "heaps hot coals upon" Obama's head with his forgiveness.

But the deadness in Obama's soul won't react to being told he's forgiven. My guess is that Obama is thinking "Who the hell is this guy to forgive ME?"

Obama won't give Mr. Woods or his son or the Bengazi deaths a second thought unless it improves his election chances. In fact, his election chances were the reason he refused them help in the first place; he can't have the appearance of unrest in the Muslim world during election time, can he? After all, O said that he personally improved relations in the Middle East.

Right. Evil, just evil...

My thoughts on this: I can imagine that Zippy didn't choose to defend the "consulate" because it really was NOT a consulate. It was the location of a CIA operation running weapons to Syrian rebels (read Al Quaeda) the Administration didn't want us to know about. Zippy doesn't dare say it wasn't a consulate, thus not meriting defense, because then he gets asked what we're really doing there. Christopher Stevens wasn't so much an ambassador but the local facilitator of Zippy's unauthorized support of Al Quaeda against (somewhat) civilized society.

It is Mr. Wood's prerogative as the father of a slain soldier to forgive his son's CIC who got him killed. However, looking how things are shaping up in the Middle East, I think that is not going to help Barack at all.

There will be war and millions will die because Barack Obama's Marxism refuses to perceive and deal with resurgent islamic imperialism. The blood of every innocent individual is on the hands of jihadis everywhere, but not without the helping hand given by useful idiots like the progressives, with Barack Obama at the head of them all.

The "instrument" wears a coward's mask. The "instrument" styles incompetence. The "instrument" is probably a clinically detached and lawless "sociopath." But the experts know his "artistic composition" is an operatic and complex and visionary "Le Destruction of America." Despite the fact that it stinkingly off key, and that he sings out of his behind, 47% of fans may even riot if he is not universally acclaimed as the new Caruso.

As a Christian, I understand that we are called upon to forgive all sinners, as our Lord has commanded us to.

Still, I think that Geraldo was his usual manipulative pro-Obama self and when he kissed Mr. Woods and said "I love you too.", I thought of the Juda's kiss.

Another point: Mr. Woods kept explaining how he "respected the office of the President of the United States". - Don't you agree that the "office" exists for an honorable Commander in Chief to inhabit as an elected leader of the people?

Mr. Obama has disgraced the office.

I don't know why y'all think the "American soil" aspect of the Benghazi debacle would have any resonance with Obama. He doesn't respect American sovereignty in the continental United States (for example, witness his supine deference to UN elections observers as superior to Texas law), why would anyone think Obama respects American sovereignty on small patches of soil in Egypt and Libya?

#19 makes an excellent point, and one I don't really doubt. However, I think the response of O was more generalized and automatic (hurt re-election...stand down). Also, if it was an AQ-helping operation, why would AQ attack? Just musing here...

It's hard to fathom that that boob Geraldo is still employed by Fox; however, knowing Ailes's (and Murdock's) propensity for sensationalism and Ailes's statement that they're moving left, I suppose it's not really surprising. Just another reason not to watch.

Mr. Woods - God bless you, sir. Your son was a fine and honorable man who died a her's death. God does not look on these things lightly.

My heart goes out to the parents of all the fallen Americans in Benghazi. Mr. Woods is a hero for speaking up, in whatever venue he can.

Lots of people think Whore-aldo is brilliant so maybe they watch him on Fox; I don't. If they did, they needed to hear Mr. Woods.

I cannot remember the program, maybe Jeanine, where Ann Coulter and Pat Caddell were guests. Caddell was livid about Benghazi, emotional to the point of tears. That kind of justifiable anger must be seen a bit more.

The so-called media is unbelievable in their participation in this cover-up. Talk about target rich environment! 1. Where are the people from the embassy staff who were rescued? 2. What happened to the local guards our "friends" in Libya provided? Why were Gen Hamm and Admiral Guaemane(sp?) booted? Their careers are over, and they are in uniform, so they can't talk now. If they were to blame for the mess, Obama would be braying about it from the rooftops. My guess is they fiercely objected to the massacre 0 was ordering them to abet.

God bless Mr. Woods and his family and all those who defend this great country. And God save us from Obama. That said, somewhere I seem to recall footage of big brave self righteous worthless Geraldo in the field in Libya I think before things got really bad and there was wild shooting by unidentified people/sides and Geraldo was complaining about them not knowing who was who and possibly being shot at himself. Geraldo is who Geraldo always was -- lowlife scum. Now wearing Obama kneepads as noted above.

What would a Mitch

Washington Post, by Paul Kane    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:08:09 PM     Post Reply
It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

The Problem with Rand Paul
Commentary Magazine, by Peter Wehner    Original Article

In his column earlier this week, the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens laid out his case against Rand Paul becoming the GOP’s presidential nominee. It was a powerful indictment and perhaps one worth building on. Mr. Stephens highlighted what he believes would be some of the obstacles facing Senator Paul, beginning with his long political association with Jack Hunter, alias the “Southern Avenger,” who among other things wrote an April 13, 2004 column titled “John Wilkes Booth Was Right.” The “Southern Avenger” said this: Although Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth’s heart was in the right place, the Southern Avenger

Max Blumenthal, like others on the far-Left, jumped on the July 2011 Norwegian massacre of 77 dead and 319 injured to impugn the counter-jihadi right. His screed, “Anders Behring Breivik, a perfect product of the Axis of Islamophobia” included this sentence: The rhetoric of the characters who inspired Breivik, from Pam Geller to Robert Spencer to Daniel Pipes, was so eliminationist in its nature that it was perhaps only a matter of time before someone put words into action. In other words, we three were to blame for the massacre. A year later, Blumenthal returned to the same theme, this time focusing

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal. Army veteran Joshua Zarecor was at an apartment complex near the West Fertilizer Co. facility, watching firefighters battle a blaze there last April 17, when the plant suddenly exploded, shattering glass in the complex and causing its walls to collapse. Misty Lambert, 38 years old, who had moved to West several weeks earlier, said she had invited Mr.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great—but now we´re told that we´re in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change. "Crop yields are

The Stupid Hounding of Condi Rice

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences. He is supposed to have once taken a job applicant to lunch at which, though the two shared a meal, neither spoke a syllable. That is no doubt apocryphal; the job applicant probably said something. George Washington had a taciturn streak, as did President Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal.” (Snip)But rarely does anyone get as upset about it as Jeffrey Toobin of the New Yorker appears to be in respect of Clarence Thomas. Toobin came unglued at the disinclination of

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change causing fish to

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
