State Department Preparing for
Bombshell Benghazi Revelations?

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by AWR Hawkins

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/14/2012 9:21:26 PM

This week, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice withdrew her name from consideration as the next Secretary of State, while current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton went from definitely testifying on Benghazi next week to a slightly less-certain "maybe" testifying on Benghazi next week. While Rice´s and Clinton´s respective announcements could be unrelated, it seems more than likely that they are connected. Moreover, it seems likely these developments are indicative of a State Dept that is preparing for bombshell Benghazi revelations to be released with or without Clinton´s testimony.

I see she is still wearing the phony blue contacts! Isn´t that sort of like a black person straightening their hair....or a white person pretending to be an indian. Dems are the definition of fake.

#5 I would lay odds they aren´t in the US..more like the military hospital in Germany, Landstuhl or one of those.I would bet they are on...lockdown...and the families probably has a little "visit" from the gubmint..clam up...eventually , (hopefully) truth will come out.

Hillary will delay testifying until after most of Congress has gone home for the holidays. Once the focus has gone to family and the holidays, she´ll try to sneak it all under the radar of the media.

This picture alone should eliminate Hillary from 2016.

But anyway,I wouldn´t count on any earthshaking news to come out of this review. Obama has everybody in his back pocket. Oh,there will be some measure of condemnation but nothing firing squad worthy.Rice got out because there was too much proof she was a liar.

The article seems to be mostly "could be".

i.e. inferring the motives of Rice and Clinton and what might be in a report we might never get to read.

It could be right, speculators sometimes are.

Unarmed security. US weapons in the hands of terrorists. Enough military power standing by to flatten the whole city around the compound told to "stand down." Top level of government knowing there was grave danger to US lives before and during the attack.

What can be more shocking?

Just look at that picture of her. That is one ugly ass woman! Geez already. One
has to wonder what the environment was for her to get a look on her face like
that. Maybe it was, "Who, crazy little old fish face me involved in dereliction
that got Americans murdered? Nuts! Like me!".

Don´t be so sure nothing will come of the Benghazi debacle. Bamster has three new lost battles in his quiver since his, ahem, landslide election: The Illinois overturn of concealed carry, the loss by unions in Michigan and Rice getting kicked to the curb. More is to come.

Obama and Chicago thugocracy Inc might have everything wired at the national level but they have much to be desired at the state level. They are losing again and again and again as more uninformed Americans catch on to their ways. The lost battles will add up and take their toll. That´s a good thing!

Here is what the New Media should be hammering this administration on EVERY DAY:

- Watergate saw NO ONE get killed.
- The Watergate cover-up did not HIDE 30 survivors from Congress and media questioning.
- The Media hounded the Nixon White House EVERY DAY until Nixon resigned, for the sake of the country.
- The Nixon tapes were DEMANDED and received by an Congressional investigation committee.

THEN, the New Media should show how THIS administration has lied, stonewalled, and covered-up at every turn.

Cleverly crafted CYA stories take time to write . Teams of lawyers comb through it for inconsistencies and scrub anything that shows client guilt. Only when the final draft shows Obama as a squeaky clean hero will it be released to the little people.

The place to get the ´low down´ is the Canada Free Press, Benghazi Part1, Benghazi Part2 and, best of all, the revelations in Benghazi Part 3. Know what is in there and expect nothing less when Congress sub-poena´s the perps.

"The bigger the front, the bigger the behind." With this rule as a guide, i would say that the cover-up is huge. Was there anyone who believed the cover story with Susan Rice? Send out someone who can testify she knew nothing? "That´s my story, and I´m stickin´ to it."
Hillary is the bigger smelling , rotten fish, as we´ve known since her cookie baking days. Obama is the master baiter in this fishy story, and his tales all are based on lies.
Since the republican´s think they have been already defeated for 2016, perhaps they could do something altruistic for the country now, and expose the game that´s being played on their innocent countrymen.

Mrs Clinton´s purported ailments are short-term. Congress should make it clear that they expect her to testify WHENEVER she can make the time. The newscast on radio stated she will be "working the phones". If she can take that action, then she can "answer the questions" before a Congressional committee.
It is blatantly obvious that Mrs Clinton has been delaying testifying since the attack
occurred. Just issue a subpoena and stop the
nonsense that is under way. Otherwise next week her Christmas tree will fall on her and wipe out her memory. I am not disputing the fact that she may have in fact have had a virus, may have fallen, and may have incurred a concussion. Therefore, a week´s delay may be justified But, that is where it should stop. Otherwise, she is purposely delaying her testimony and Congress should take the appropriate action.

Mrs. Clinton is using the oldest trick in the book to avoid testifying.

How many times have mobsters, financial shysters, or just plain criminals faked illness (the mob boss who roamed NY streets in a bathrobe, mumbling to himself, comes to mind) in order to avoid having to testify, or to stand trial?

She couldn´t remember Whitewater, the Rose Law Firm billing records, and numerous other things--but she was sharp enough to turn $1,000 into $100,000, and to be a Senator and a Secretary of State.

She will just run out the clock on testifying, and will get away with whatever she did or didn´t do vis-a-vis Benghazi.

Bilary knows insiders get killed, wacked, whenever it´s as big a death dealing cover-up as Obama´s idiotic attempt to pull off with Benghazi. She´s an
insider on this terrifying death op, that´s not a good place to be. Yeah, she´s sick already. Let´s face it, most Washington insiders are sick, real sick.

It’s a big weekend for the Bush family, which is enjoying a renaissance of sorts after several years in the political wilderness. Throngs of former administration officials, members of Congress and others descended Friday on College Station, Tex., to fete former president George H.W. Bush on the 25th anniversary of his arrival in office. One of the highlights of the weekend will be a live interview with his son, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who has quietly been exploring a 2016 presidential campaign. About 180 miles to the north, former president George W. Bush is hosting an event of a

That´s no triumph, it´s a manipulation. And how many of the 7.1 million have paid?" "We can´t say, but 7.1 million is a big number and redeems the program." "Is it a real number?"

In 2008, Barack Obama and Brendan Eich both were against gay marriage. Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional. Barack Obama inexplicably remains, as of this writing, president of the United States of America, but Mr. Eich has just been forced out as CEO

Oregon State University, disdaining responsibility for trashing distribution boxes that were intended for a politically conservative student newspaper, has still paid $1,000 plus $100,000 in legal fees after a former student, William Rogers, filed suit against them. The lawsuit, filed in 2009 by supporters of the newspaper The Liberty, contended that the university president and other school officials permitted the official campus newspaper access to distribution bins, but school officials removed the bins for The Liberty. The suit alleged that school officials confiscated distribution bins for The Liberty and tossed them onto a trash heap. The bins, which contained copies

Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify about her role in the Internal Revenue Service’s tea party targeting scandal, setting up a major battle over constitutional rights versus Congress‘ ability to oversee the government. Rep. Darrell E. Issa, the House’s top investigator, said Thursday that as a senior official at the center of the IRS targeting, Ms. Lerner will either talk or face penalties for refusing to help the committee get to the bottom of who orchestrated the targeting and what the motives were. “Ms. Lerner’s

Kerry’s folly, Chapter 3

When has a secretary of state been involved in so many disastrous, self-initiated negotiations? First, John Kerry convenes — against all advice and holding no cards — Geneva negotiations to resolve the Syria conflict and supposedly remove Bashar al-Assad from power. The talks collapse in acrimony and confusion. Kerry’s response? A second Geneva conference that — surprise! — breaks up in acrimony and confusion. Then, even as Russian special forces are taking over Crimea, Kerry goes chasing after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov — first to Paris, then Rome, then London — offering a diplomatic “offramp.” Lavrov shrugs him off.

When his aides get discouraged about the prospects for Middle East peace, Secretary of State John F. Kerry often bucks them up with a phrase: “Don’t be afraid to be caught trying.” But as his tireless efforts to broker Israeli-Palestinian negotiations hit bottom Thursday, with Israel’s cancellation of prisoner releases that were considered crucial to keeping the talks alive, there are some around Kerry — including on his senior staff and inside the White House — who believe the time is approaching for him to say, “Enough.” Kerry risks being seen as trying too hard at the expense of a

The American left is outraged that the Supreme Court has voted 5 to 4 that limits to the aggregate amount of donations to federal campaigns have been found unconstitutional. Prior to the ruling, there was a 123,200 limit ($48,600 for candidates and $74,600 in contributions to PACs) on the total amount a single donor could contribute in a two year federal campaign cycle. The ruling did not affect the existing $2,600 limit on the maximum donation to any Congressional campaign. As you might have already guessed, Harry Reid had the most predictable reaction, invoking the Koch Brothers. “The Supreme Court today

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Trying to put Obamacare’s problems behind him, President Obama renewed his election-year push for an increase in the minimum wage Wednesday and the White House urged fellow Democrats to latch on to the issue for their own political gain. Speaking at the University of Michigan, the president again fiercely advocated for a rise in the nation’s minimum wage, trying to keep the issue front and center as the November midterm elections creep closer. “In America, we don’t believe in opportunity for a few — we believe that everybody should have a chance at success,” Mr. Obama

Compromise on smaller minimum
wage hike is nonstarter

President Obama campaigned in Michigan with Dem Senate candidate Gary Peters, making the case for a hike in the federal minimum wage to $10.10. Unfortunately, the wrangling in the Senate today suggests the idea is going to die. Senator Susan Collins has said she’s trying to craft a bipartisan compromise on the minimum wage that could win Republican support — a compromise that would require hiking the minimum wage to an unspecified point below the $10.10 per hour that Obama and Democrats want. Today Harry Reid ruled out the idea, insisting that Dems won’t agree to anything below $10.10. In

THE SUPREME Court on Wednesday overturned yet another federal law meant to check corruption and influence-peddling in national politics. The ruling shows two things: The Roberts Court’s destructive view on these matters wasn’t changed by the backlash to its Citizens United holding, and Congress must respond by designing new rules that can pass the court’s overly skeptical review. If lawmakers tackle the issue forthrightly, they have some workable options. The court eliminated an overall limit on how much donors could give to candidates, parties and various other committees over the course of an election cycle. The idea had been to

President Obama expressed the White House’s frustration with news coverage of the Affordable Care Act’s rocky rollout by taking a jab at the press on Tuesday. During his ObamaCare enrollment victory lap speech in the Rose Garden, the president swiped at reporters, who the White House believes were too eager to spotlight every incremental development associated with the site´s botched launch. “I want to make sure everybody understands – in the months, years ahead, I guarantee you there will be additional challenges to implementing this law,” Obama said. “There will be days when the website stumbles.

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there
