Chris Stevens Was Not
Even Remembered

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by Joel B. Pollak

Original Article

Posted By:ketchuplover, 2/13/2013 1:31:49 AM

In his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama failed to mention the late Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the three other Americans who died on Sep. 11, 2012 in the terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. He mentioned the victims of the massacre in Newtown, CT in December, and invited the families of victims of other violent gun crimes to watch from the gallery. But the Benghazi victims´ families were not present at all. Instead of offering even the slightest word of tribute for the fallen, for Chris Stevens´s amazing career or for the bravery of the

Too inconvenient. Doesn´t fit his political agenda. People are just tools to Obama. They have no value to him unless he can use them to further his career, amass more power & wealth, or benefit him or his agenda in anyway possible. Lives are expendable to people like Obama.

Chris Stevens & his bodygaurds are not forgotten by me, Mr. Pollak. Thank you for this article. You did Breitbart proud. I can just see him standing outside the well of the Senate with the waiting press corps asking, "What about Ambassador Stevens, Mr. President?"

I´m still talking about Chris Stevens & will all the way to the next election. NEVER forget the dereliction of duty by this administration, including the (former) Scy of State Ms. H. Rodham-Clinton! Never! I.Am.Brietbart.

King Barack´s best line from the SOTU: "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam".

Oops, my mistake. That was his best line at the UN, when he addressed the entire world while peddling the lie that Chris Stevens was murdered by disgruntled movie critics.

At least we can rest assured that at some point in history when the smoke all clears, King Barack will certainly go down as the worst, most disgraceful president - like, ever.

Obama considers Benghazi case closed,he´s not going to bring it up on his own.

The only possible far out way he could have exploited this is say republican budget cuts hurt security there.

The president should have stood in front of those cameras and said. "Benghazi was a screwup from top to bottom and I take full responsibility! America has been protecting her ambassadors for over 200 years and we should be competent at it by now. I have fired everyone in the line of responsibility and replaced them with qualified people charged with making sure this debacle will never happen again."

That´s what a real man would do, not that sniveling cowardly occupant of the Oval office.

#16 - he should also fire himself for dereliction of duty. I don´t know if this situation in Libya has ever happened in the history of USA before where brave people were abandoned by their gov´t. Why aren´t the survivors now speaking up? This president continues to reinforce the description that Clint Eastwood gave him - the "empty chair". Someone like Bob Woodward where are you?

For a nation where too many are ignorant or uninterested...perhaps pictures would work...

...showing our Ambassador being sodomised might relay the horrors of Obama´s ineptitude and Al Quaeda´s intent....

Then reveal that is the very enemy Obama has armed with guns and missiles from Benghazi.

His staff should have given a shout out to Amb Chris Steven. They missed out as Stevens mother was a full-blooded Native American.
He has given shout-outs before. When he went down to FT Hood after the "non-terrorist work accident" and gave a shout out to some Indian chief (Native American chief).Why because the 1870s US troops involved in the Indian Wars were from FT Hood. I am sorry I don´t recall the Cavalyr number.But it was another of Obama´s insulting gestures. And this is why the FT Hood troops are denied the designation as a the target terrorist act.
But he missed out on the Indian chris Stevens shout-out.

A Focus Group, after listening to Obama´s SOTU, was asked if they were upset about Obama failing to mention Amb. Stevens? They all screamed out "What difference does it make?"

Obama and Hillary were then seen laughing hysterically in the background?

As for his staff, no telling what their feelings were about being abandoned by their country. Were they willing to give their lives to make sure Obama was re-elected?

In the interest of full disclosure, I am saddened by the fate of the families of the Benghazi staff, as well as the Newtown families who lost their kids and coworkers.

However, why do either belong before a joint-session of an entire government, which is being addressed by its chief executive regarding the policies and affairs of a continent-spanning nation? It doesn´t seem rational.

While Constitutionally required, the SOTU Address is a mere formality - a ritualistic, annual calling of account for the executive.

In their usual fashion, our politicians have inverted a noble institution, and fashioned it into the Presidential version of Queen for a Day. They simply trot out the most sympathetic victims of Injustice that will be Saved by their Cause, on national television, and with the consent and endorsement, if not the force of government.

I wish we would go back to the old tradition of the SOTU being delivered in the form of a letter from the White House to a joint-session of the Congress.

Mickey Rooney, the pint-sized actor who was one of MGM’s giant box office attractions in the late ’30s and early ’40s, died on Sunday. He was 93. As adept at comedy as drama and an excellent singer and dancer, Rooney was regarded as the consummate entertainer. During a prolific career on stage and screen that spanned eight decades (“I’ve been working all my life, but it seems longer,” he once said), he was nominated for four Academy Awards and received two special Oscars, the Juvenile Award in 1939 (shared with Deanna Durbin) and one in 1983 for his body of work.

Last week, news broke that a congressional candidate in Gainesville had a secret pastime: impersonating vampires. And superheroes. Some people would call this nutty. In Florida, we just call it Tuesday. Seriously, that´s not even our highest-profile vampire story. Remember the "vampire killings" from Lake County? Some of our stories are heartbreakingly tragic. But so many are also mind-numbingly strange. In Florida, we do weird the way Kansas does wheat. Here, giant pet snakes escape. And breed. And then invade our national parks. We have fish that eat people, alligators that eat people and people who eat people.

The idea behind Txt Shield, which runs on Android phones, is to short-circuit any texting capability when people are cruising down the highway, according to brothers Philip and Geoffrey Stiles, co-founders and partners in Txt Shield LLC. Parents can install it on their teens´ phones; employers can put it on company-issued phones; and individuals can download it to help resist the urge to

The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

President Obama says the thousands of Irish immigrants in the US are being denied opportunities because of the US strict immigration laws. The President was speaking the traditional Shamrock ceremony at the White House as part of the St Patrick´s Day celebrations. The issue of immigration reform was a priority for the Irish Government delegation, led by Enda Kenny. The delegation has been lobbying in Washington during the St Patrick´s Day trip for reforms to benefit the 50,000 undocumented Irish there. President Obama said too many undocumented Irish were denied the chance to contribute to society as they were not able to pay taxes

Why discredited ‘scandals’

On Fox News last night, Bill O’Reilly struggled with a question he apparently finds confusing: why aren’t major news organizations covering the IRS “scandal” to his satisfaction. Lois Lerner, the former head of the IRS’ tax exempt division, took the Fifth last week, but most of the media seemed indifferent. (Snip) That’s one possible explanation. But in the interest of giving O’Reilly and Goldberg something else to consider, there’s a more plausible, reality-based reason the media has lost interest in this scandal: there is no scandal. As we’ve discussed on more than a few occasions, the story has already been

The past two days have revealed the dangerous ramifications of the narrow-minded foreign policy elite in Washington, and a media establishment that has for so much of President Obama’s tenure accepted the statements of the administration as gospel. (Snip) If this is the sort of foreign policy anticipation that the establishment delivers, it’s little surprise that no one trusts America’s self-styled policy elites any more. They are too used to judging the world according to the patterns toward which they are already biased, as opposed to seeing it as it is.

President Obama has made liberal use of "executive action" throughout his presidency, and pledged to make even more use of executive action in this year´s State of the Union speech. He seems to think that because Republicans don´t want to implement his agenda, he can go around Congress. The Heritage Foundation is out with a new report on President Obama´s executive actions, titled "An Executive Unbound," finding that "abusive, unlawful, even potentially unconstitutional unilateral action has been a hallmark of the Obama Administration." They´ve also compiled a list of the top ten abusive executive actions taken by the President.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
