The web of deceit about
Benghazi begins to fray

Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/14/2012 5:01:36 AM

What did the president know, and when did he know it? Of what steel are the Republicans in Congress made? We’re about to find out. Big scandals from little leaks grow. Watergate was at first only “a third-rate burglary.” Bubba thought he was only trying to cover up the details of a failed real-estate scheme down on the White River. Humiliation, resignation and even an impeachment followed. History warns presidents that second terms are never Sunday picnics, and the unfolding — exploding is more accurate — of the story of what really happened on a violent night in Benghazi, Libya,

"What the president knew" is not the issue. The "pResident" is supposed to know, is paid to know -- it is his job to know. Americans now question whether he was legally elected to know after the many reports of fraud in the recent election.

I, for one, do not have much faith in the "steel" that makes up the Republican party. I think it´s more like aluminum in their spines, rather than steel.

If Obama openly ripped the heart out of Romney on national TV, shouting, "Allahu Akbar", the media would find ways to praise, or excuse it, and his followers would cheer! The Senate would shuffle uncomfortably for a moment, perhaps, then solidly condemn any House action taken against this ´popular´ President as Racism.

That´s if Boehner suddenly developed the stones to protest the sacrifice.

Boehner is a Democrat operative, playing the part of a conservative, to steer our side off cliffs for Obama´s amusement.

Time for what others may label a ´tin foil hat moment´ ...
I wonder if Obama has pondered the possibility that he, himself, is the person being played by his handlers and that he may be forced into a Nixonian resignation.
.... Remember, it wasn´t the Democrats who removed Nixon from office. It was his own party.

like any of this "Nixonian" talk is really going to happen. There is not an honest
one in the bunch . Get used to 4 more years, if not more of this insanity.....it won´t be stopped by the weak and neutered GOP.Even Paul Ryan has to yammer on and on about how Obama won
fair and square. This bunch didn´t even belong in the "big leagues."

Doesn´t matter..... The press wont cover it and not a single democrat will vote for impeachment. At best, a small handful of 3rd stringers will take the fall.

If Obama were a republican, this would be a 24/7 story with demands of investigations. Remember Fitzmas? Remember Plame?

Of course Obama and co knew of this early on. That sat on it, like waiting to play a prized card in a poker game. This whole Springer type debacle is Obama and co trying to pin the blame of Benghazi on Petraeus, a distraction from what is important about Benghazi or a distraction about any talk of Obama stealing the election or some combo.

Recommend we don´t get too caught up in the details of the day by day, endless saga. I was channel surfing on the cable news on 11-13 and it was all they were talking about: Benghazi; Petraeus; the women; the new general involved yadda yadda yadda. It seemed futile to find a channel not discussing it all. Crazy.

´ look forward to the day when Hildebeast´s and Obama´s affairs are on the front burner, for all to see. No way they are loyal to those, ahem, "partners" and vice versa. Obama and co leak: Seal Team 6; Stuxnet involvement; gave a drone to Iran; etc as SOP and this is all the lsm can talk about. Sick, sick, sick media.

I´m encouraged by the Wash.Times printing this article. The DC/NYC MSM crowd can´t hide what happened in Benghazi forever - there is now a strong, powerful alternative to the biased news business.

In a way Generals Petraeus and Allen did us a big favor by being so stupid as to diddle around - thinking they were "too big" to get caught. They aren´t Donald Trump who doesn´t dance to anyone´s tune but his own, since he pays the bills. If you are on the government string, you can´t dance your own way.

Remember Iran-Contra?
The cover-up was to conceal the provision of weapons to the opposition to the Sandanistas.

The current cover-up is to conceal the provision of weapons to Al-Quaeda in Syria. Remember: Al Quaeda has been destroyed. Yet the Ambassador was gun runner in chief. Obama does not want that to come out.
And just as Oliver North did not know how to shred his hard drive, so also Gens Allen and Petraeus did not know their emails would live on in perpetuity.

"Their privates were giving them orders."

So down will come the house of cards.

Post #3 is absolutely correct.

The only thing which could cause criticism of Zippy would be if he suddenly declared himself to be pro-life. Then HE´D be the one with the heart getting ripped out.

Forget Washington DC -- folks.... WE need to go local. That means move to republican states. Grow the conservative base. Fight obama on each corner -- taxes, health/careless, Russia´s take/over of defense, U.N. take over of our sovereignty -- all the goodies that obama thinks he´s won....

Even if the republicans in DC negotiate with obama and sell US out -- locally WE will not stop pushing back....

According to this morning´s Wall Street Journal, Jill Kelley tried to persuade the FBI to drop the investigation after friends showed her how much widespread damage could result. The same article said Paula Broadwell sent anonymous messages to General Allen and other high-up officers warning against Jill Kelley. This after, supposedly, her affair with Petraeus had ended.

Patraeus becomes less and less appealing as the pictures and information unfold. Both he and Allen were hooked in by alpha sex sirens, enjoying power through sex. The powerful generals seem a touch pathetic and drained of their own importance, the woman, as not too bright, and not that pretty, bimbos.

The following statement may seem uncouth at the least, but it comes from a lowly cafeteria worker at one of Chrysler´s manufacturing plants in the 1970´s:"That Pussy is a powerful thing?"Please excuse me for posting this here, but when I was working for Chrysler in the 1970´s this particular woman happened to be working in the cafe at Chrysler´s and she made this statement. I can´t actually recall the circumstances as to it, but it is substantiated rather forcefully in the General Patreaus & Allen´s cases, no doubt.

Is it too much to hope for a democratic senator like Barbara Boxer who has at times been somewhat pro Military to grab hold of this along with McCain?

What of the possibility of the PIAPS not wanting to get thrown under the bus again and leaking some documents?

It will take something like that to even get this scandal off the ground. Otherwise Obama will skate on this. The media is too in the tank for him and even if they were not his supporters do not care

You need an example; Alger Hiss. Even 50 or 60 years ago the democrats were refusing to admit the truth. Hiss was a spy, he did give secrets to the USSR and no demonrat will ever admit it.

It´s time to suggest that the famous "video" was actually produced for Obama´s deception. After all, they were promoting, "featuring" the damned thing. Telling all these savages to get busy rioting and going crazy. Have y´all seen the video yet? What are you going to do about this insult to the prophet?

Wr know how diseased Obama´s mind is, his morals are worse. Do something Senators to save us from this saboteur of our Constitution. After all, what is the central feature of this whole affair? It was a hit on the Ambassador, who was shipping weapons to our enemies. How about talking about the stripping of secret documents from the Consulate? How about talking about the warehouses which were emptied of these weapons? What else is there to know? Know this: Obama is a traitor!

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated. It was impossible to listen to the president's speech Thursday

Ten planes and 14 ships were scouring around 16,000 square miles of the Indian Ocean today in a bid to locate the device before its emergency beacons fade. But a U.S. Navy captain has said they could ´give up´ on the acoustic search following two days without a ping. ´When the time is right, we’ll say "Yes, the beacons have probably stopped transmitting" and it’s time to shift,´ Captain Mark Matthews told ABC News.

They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration is tightening the reins on cash handling to eliminate an embarrassing lack of oversight that allegedly allowed a low-level clerk in the Chicago Department of Transportation to embezzle nearly $750,000 in permit fees over a six-year period. In a memo to department heads, City Comptroller Dan Widawsky argued that “recent events have highlighted the risks associated with cash management” and the importance of “robust controls to manage” those risks. “We are the custodians of our city’s resources and you and your finance staff are critical to ensuring that such resources are safeguarded,” Widawsky wrote. “Each department head is responsibl

WASHINGTON – Lawmakers with strong ties to the Tea Party movement have gained a toehold in the U.S. Senate but it appears they might have difficulty expanding their numbers this year. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) are among those associated with the conservative, grassroots drive that has proved influential within Republican Party politics in a relatively short period of time. But a review of upcoming Senate contests reveals that more establishmentarian Senate candidates maintain an edge – at least to this point – heading into the primary season.

Obamas´ income drops 21% to $481,098

New York - President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama reported an adjusted gross income of $481,098 for 2013 -- about 21% less than the year before. The bulk of their income came from the president´s salary, but the Obamas also reported roughly $100,000 in business income from Random House and literary management company Dystel & Goderich. The White House released the couple´s 2013 federal tax return on Friday. Their federal tax bill for 2013 came to $98,169, according to their return. That´s an effective federal tax rate of 20.4% on the First Family´s AGI. But because they already paid $117,277 in federal taxes,

VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis said Friday he took personal responsibility for the "evil" of priests who raped and molested children, asking forgiveness from victims and saying the church must be even bolder in its efforts to protect the young. It was the first time a pope has taken personal responsibility for the sex crimes of his priests and begged forgiveness. Francis made the off-the-cuff remarks after coming under criticism from victims´ advocacy groups for a perceived lack of attention to the sexual abuse scandal and ongoing demands that he sanction bishops who covered up for pedophiles.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
