Petraeus Knew ‘Almost Immediately’
Terrorists Responsible for Benghazi Attack

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/15/2012 8:56:32 PM

CNN reports that former Central Intelligence Agency director David H. Petraeus wants to tell Congress that he knew “almost immediately” that the attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi was perpetrated by terrorists. According to the source, reports attributing the attack to protests surrounding an anti-Islam video and protests in Cairo were not disproven until after Petraeus made his initial report to Congress. Despite that, according to CNN, Petraeus had separate talking points from Rice’s and that her talking points came from somewhere else in the administration.

Comments:
Since his testimony is behind closed doors when will we know the truth? This is the entire article.

It seems a clear story. He knew the truth, he told the truth and let the criticism lap a little closer to some better-connected people, and so the WH decided to destroy him over what they treated as a trifle (didn´t tell the president about it) until they wanted to get rid of him. If the national security issue were so huge, why didn´t they tell Obama about it right away? Answer, because it wasn´t huge at all. It was just a pretext for firing once they decided that was what to do. The Peters article to me shows up Peters as someone who writes "for" someone who can be bought up by the WH. Arms merchants who want in on the Solyndra type deals, maybe.

Supplying guns to our enemies is treasonous. The video remarks had two purposes: 1. to remove blame from the One. 2. to promote the "Anti Heresy Against Islam" that Clinton´s been working on with the UN. These people are sick.

CNN sure is interested now, after the election, and when the sacrifice is targeted.

Not to say that Petraeus behavior didn´t give them a knife to cut his throat.

Boehner seems to reject Schumer’s
immigration proposal
Daily Caller, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/10/2014 3:48:30 PM     Post Reply
A deputy for House Speaker John Boehner has rejected Sen. Chuck Schumer’s Sunday suggestion that the House pass an immigration-boosting bill this year, but also delay implementation until after President Barack Obama leaves office in 2017. Schumer’s proposal was intended to counter Boehner’s statement last week that the GOP can’t pass an immigration rewrite because the legislators don’t Obama trust to enforce parts of the law that he does not like. “The trust concerns w/ President are not limited to immigration enforcement,” said a Monday tweet from Becky Tallent, Boehner’s immigration staffer. ”They’re about health care waivers, minimum wage hikes, etc, etc.”

Sources close to MSNBC host Joe Scarborough think he is seriously considering the prospect of leaving morning television to run for president in 2016. Last week, Scarborough was all smiles — even letting out a laugh — on “Morning Joe” when Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol suggested on the air that Scarborough could represent the “Jon Huntsman lane” in a 2016 GOP primary. But behind the scenes, those who know Scarborough are not laughing. It’s widely believed at MSNBC — including among network brass — that Scarborough is actively mulling a presidential bid, sources said. Meanwhile, some of Scarborough’s guests are beginning

The White House on Monday said it’s “bogus” of House Republicans to argue that distrust of President Obama is standing in the way of enacting immigration reform legislation. Press secretary Jay Carney said the administration understood and was “even sympathetic to the fact that this is a tough issue for Republicans.” “But nobody buys that a Republican reluctance to deal with and pass comprehensive immigration reform” is because of Obama, Carney said. "It wasn´t the case in 2006. It´s not the case now." Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) last week said Obama needed "to demonstrate to the American people and my colleagues that he

Following the publication of documents relating to how former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton comported herself politically in the Washington Free Beacon, a CNN panel took on those revelations and their possible political implications. The panel also took on Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) attacks on Bill Clinton’s sexual exploits and the revelations contained in the documents relating to Clinton. Most of the members of the CNN panel concluded that Clinton is aided by how the media is portraying her. Paul has recently attacked Democrats who campaign with or accept donations raised by Bill Clinton because of his past behavior which

Chamber prods GOP on debt ceiling

The nation’s main business lobby on Monday called on the House to raise the debt ceiling, increasing pressure on Republicans to move a bill forward. The letter to lawmakers calls on the House to pass a “timely increase” to the debt limit, which had been suspended until Friday. The government´s debt is above $17 trillion. The Treasury Department has set a Feb. 27 deadline for raising the limit, arguing it might not be able to pay all U.S. obligations at that time. The chamber’s chief lobbyist, Bruce Josten, wrote that raising the debt limit would eliminate the threat of default and allow credit

Liberal groups are agitating for another round of filibuster reform, after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) controversial triggering of the nuclear option last year has done little to alleviate Senate gridlock. A coalition of labor and liberal groups have pressed Reid to make additional changes to the Senate rules this year, something that senior Democratic aides say is very possible. “We strongly urge Majority Leader Reid and Chairman [Patrick] Leahy [D-Vt.] to consider reforms to floor and committee rules that will hasten the confirmation of President Obama’s talented and qualified set of nominees,” they said in a statement.

Democratic strategist Angela Rye in an appearance on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” on Friday accused Republicans of trying to impeach President Barack Obama, because he’s “black in the White House.” “You don´t just fight to get the person out of office because you don´t like how they comb their hair, the color of their skin or the fact that they´re black in the White House. That´s not what you do,” said Rye, executive director and general counsel to the Congressional Black Caucus. Rye’s comments were made during a segment of the show on former Rep.

Other drugstores chains are going to start feeling the congressional pressure this week to go the route of CVS and pull tobacco products from their shelves. Drugstore chain CVS received praise from President Obama on Wednesday after announcing that it would stop selling tobacco products at its more than 7,600 stores across the country. “Ending the sale of cigarettes and tobacco products at CVS/pharmacy is the right thing for us to do for our customers and our company to help people on their path to better health,” said Larry J.

The latest Kentucky poll found that Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Kentucky Republican, is trailing his Democratic challenger, Kentucky Secretary of State Allison Lundergan Grimes, by 4 percentage points. Forty-six percent of those polled said they would vote for Ms. Grimes, who has campaigned primarily on bringing jobs to Kentucky and raising the minimum wage, while just 42 percent said they would vote for Mr. McConnell, the Courier-Journal reported. “When he says that raising the minimum wage is the last thing he wants to do, Mitch McConnell apparently thinks that over 60 percent of Kentuckians are wrong.

President Obama´s new and low-budget proposal to help Americans build a tiny nest egg appears to violate federal laws barring retirement plan sponsors from steering investments to self-serving accounts, in this case the Treasury´s own bonds, according to a new analysis. The “myRA” plan Obama unveiled in his State of the Union address would also be outlawed in the private finance world because it offers no investment diversification and amounts to a conflict of interest, violations that call for fines up to $100,000 and up to a year in prison. “If private sector plan sponsors offered this plan to their

President Obama’s new Homeland Security boss dismissed the GOP’s focus on building a border fence with Mexico as the answer to the nation´s illegal immigration problem and urged Congress to OK a “path to citizenship” because 11.5 million illegals “are not going away.” In a major address to explain his agenda, Jeh Johnson on Friday also said that the government should shift from mass deportations to removing those who pose a national security threat. “We must prioritize our resources on those who represent threats to national security, public safety and border security,” he said in an address to the Wilson Center.

LONDON - Stronger winds which have cooled the surface of the Pacific Ocean could explain what is likely to be a temporary slowdown in the pace of global warming this century, researchers said. Last year, scientists on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said the pace of temperature rise at the Earth´s surface had slowed over the past 15 years, even though greenhouse gas emissions, widely blamed for causing climate change, have risen steadily.

SAN ANTONIO — We recommend incumbent John Cornyn for the GOP´s U.S. Senate nomination, based on unmatched experience and decades of service to Texas. The theme among a bevy of challengers seems to be that Cornyn is a CINO, a conservative in name only. This is not just counter-intuitive but counter-factual. Various ratings — liberal and conservative — have agreed on one thing, Cornyn´s conservative credentials are genuine. Not conservative? Cornyn is No. 2 in Senate leadership and diverged only slightly from the conservative playbook in a year in which he offered a measure that would further beef up security at the

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

It was the perfect Christmas tableau at the Allen-Farrow household: There sat Mia and nine of her children around the dinner table. There were two turkeys, an abundance of side dishes, and in the middle, a carved angel. In came Woody Allen with a holiday greeting. “Pardon me while I puke,” he said, then went off to the kitchen to juice apples. Long before the scandals — Woody taking off with Mia’s adopted teen daughter Soon-Yi, Mia accusing Woody of molesting their 7-year-old daughter, Dylan — the Allen-Farrow family was regarded as the ultimate cosmopolitan clan, a multiracial brood of 11 children,

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech. "Nine million." (Snip) But there is strong new evidence to suggest the administration's claims are grossly exaggerated and deeply misleading. Obamacare is not doing nearly as well as the

ASHINGTON — Michelle Obama says a gay University of Missouri football player is “an inspiration to all of us.” The first lady took to Twitter on Monday to comment on Michael Sam, the all-American college player who announced Sunday that he is gay. Mrs. Obama says she “couldn’t be prouder” of Sam’s courage, both on and off the field. The tweet was signed “-mo,” which is how the White House marks messages personally sent by the first lady. Sam could become the first openly homosexual player in the NFL. He’s scheduled to participate in the league’s weeklong scouting camp, where potential draftees

Incredible how Fox News Corp. talking head Bill O’Reilly—America’s biggest, television talking head who’s out there professing “Obama’s not a bad guy”—thinks he can get away with ‘pin-heading’ John Boehner for “pandering to radio talk show hosts” on amnesty. Guess bloviating Bill never takes the time to tune in to radio talk show hosts where John Boehner has been persona non grata for some time. Boehner finds no comfortable quarters from radio talk show giants Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity or Mark Levin, who continue to castigate the guy who’s a dead ringer for the cowardly lion in the Wizard of

BAGHDAD — A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said. The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law. It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

Even nearly three years out, it’s become “common knowledge” which has been repeated by more folks than you can count. (Including yours truly) Hillary Clinton is going to run for President. How could she not? And assuming she does, she will most certainly win the Democrat nomination. On top of that, she will present a daunting challenge to the GOP candidate, no matter whether the nominee is “establishment” or “grassroots” or from the Planet Ork. But I’m seeing an increasing amount of speculation that perhaps the conventional wisdom is neither. Does she want to spend two more years on the
