Pat Smith and 700 Special Ops
American Spectator, by Jeffrey Lord

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 4/11/2013 6:13:54 AM

Seven hundred Military Special Operations professionals. And one insistent and very angry Mom. This is becoming a deadly combination for the political game players in the Obama Administration. Sean Smith, the young State Department computer wizard who was brutally murdered that September night in Benghazi, was Pat Smith’s only child. Let’s say that again. Sean Smith was Mrs. Smith’s only child. To listen to her recent radio interview with another Sean… Sean Hannity… is to have the heart break.

I really feel for this poor woman who´s not getting an ounce of sympathy from the MSM. Compare this to all the crying towels for cindy Shehan who basically abandoned her killed boy when he was a kid.The government owes them woman an explanation that she´ll never get because the Benghazi attack was orchestrated by Obama himself.Why else would he evaporate into thin air the night of the attack?

This is true. I forgot about Sheehan. Why was she depicted and lionized in the press as a brave heroine while this poor woman is ignored? Talk about a double standard!

God Bless and keep safe not only Mrs. Smith, who lost her only child, but those 700 (and I hope it grows to thousands) SpecOps demanding answers. Mr. Hannity, God Bless you too for stepping up to help this grieving Mother.

Again, where has my country gone? Every day, through two deployments, I have been stilled in sheer terror should an early morning or late night call come into my home. I as many many others await the safe arrival of my child. Mine is my only son.

Again, I ask, where has my country gone? Are we going to sit back and allow this?

The MSM covered Cindy Sheehan´s lone voice, her every move, including when she passed gas. She was a liberal icon even though she is an ignoramus with an illegitimate issue. She could be used and therefore was valuable to the Left.

But enter another lone voice demanding legitimate attention to a legitimate heartbreak, anger and concern, and the MSM is deathly silent.

The fact that Mrs Smith, the parents of the 3 other State Department officers and the parents/wives of the 7+ seriously wounded CIA agents have not been on CBS´ 60 Minutes, the Today Show and an ABC slobber fest presents a frightening example of state run news. Our "news media" have turned into Pravda and TASS, or organs of the regime. The media comply with every Obama order, and only present that news the shapes positive opinions of Obama. This propaganda effort has been well entrenched, but never more evident than in the case of Mrs Smith. Her frustration over the barriers blocking access to the truth about Sean´s death would be perfect for a Diane Sawyer or Geraldo Rivera, yet there is nothing.

#8 didn´t go quite far enough...

The fact that the parents of the 3 other State Department officers and the parents/wives of the 7+ seriously wounded CIA agents have not been heard from at all is a frightening example of what our current administration is capable of.

I lived behind the iron curtain in the early 80´s, in Ceaucescu´s Romania, and the US today is looking more and more like Romania did then.

#9, I don´t think Hillary Clintoon or her alleged husband can even recognize truth, much less tell it. They have lived lies and told lies for so long now, that their vision is so warped that they cannot look at a set of facts and see what actually happened. They don´t even have hindsight.

This is not bias, this is not familial loyalty, this is not Obama´s socialist apparatchiks trying to gain control of our nation. This is vile, concentrated and distilled wickedness.

In their minds, with the world falling in tatters since Obama came in and hit the reset, Hillary did a wonderful job as secretary of state....and when you ask what she did, beyond log air miles, they sniff and don´t answer, as if it is self evident.

It is obvious that the MSM pick and choose what is newsworthy and Benghazi was and is not. To find out the truth and to report it would put a bad light on Hillary and Barry. Can´t have that. They all have much to answer for. Tell them to get off of that trial of the woman who slashed her boyfriend to death and get on to finding out the truth about Benghazi where four Americans serving our country were murdered and our leaders let it happen and don´t care. All they care about is the next election and making sure they win. Power and money and fame is all they care about.

Those who think the story of the death of Sean Smith and his three colleagues is of political import need to pause for a moment to ponder the question: What ever happened to that thing called, "Fast and Furious?" Certainly by 2016, and likely sooner, the story of Sean Smith will be long gone. It will have been successfully disappeared by all the bureaucrats who have stonewalled to conceal their own culpability;. Disappeared by the main stream media that is in bed with these same bureaucrats. And disappeared from the thoughts and minds of our low information voters who, if the truth be told, never gave it much thought anyway.

Thank you Jeffrey Lord for writing this outstanding article and thank you, Ms. Lucianne, for making it a Must Read.

I´ve tried to analyze my own feelings to find something good in all of this national grief. I talk to God all the time (I´m not good at formal prayer - just talk. Poor God, I imagine Him thinking I´m like the kid that is always asking "why" about everything that is too complicated for a simple answer.

Anyway, in my "talks" I tell God that I know He couldn´t interfere to save our people in Benghazi because He gave man Free Will, but can He, please inspire someone to do something to help give our grieving nation the truth of what happened?

Bless Pat Smith, God surely inspired her to keep asking questions, like a child. And God has inspired these Special Ops veterans to band together to help Mrs. Smith get some answers. In doing so, this "truth" may lead to other "truths" which have been covered up that are leading our nation down a path of destruction.

As my dear father always used to tell me when I couldn´t understand sad things and "why didn´t God intervene to not let the bad thing happen" - he would tell me "God moves in mysterious ways His wonders to perform". I´m "praying" that Pat Smith and the 700 Special Ops are the "mysterious ways He´s performing".

I think there must be thousands of people involved in this coverup. Officers and staff aboard ships and generals at bases who were told to "stand down". And what about the medical staff that tended to Hillary when she "bumped" her head? Other staff people injured at the consulate and their families. You´ve got to believe that out of all these people, someone, somewhere, sometime is going to unload their conscience and spill the beans. Right?

They´ll fly the families of Sandy Hook victims on Air Force One to a propaganda event but won´t help this woman attend a ceremony honoring her son. Pigs. We need to see what was in Obamas intelligence briefings for the mornings of 9/10 and 9/11. I know he was briefed on the threat from al-zawahiri seeking revenge for the death of his Libyan friend by drone attack. That was likely the trigger for the attack and protests in Egypt, led by al-zawahiri´s brother.

Nothing matters if there is no God of a Moral Universe. That is the problem with these people. You people who process information traditionally and logically, you quaint moralists, you sane types -- you do not matter to these people. So it does not matter about this heroic American kid and his grieving mother. It does not matter that republican stiffs and democrat traitors and press jock sniffers and TV whores have sold you out to a New World Order. It doesn´t matter. Hillary told you.

Creatively think of Benghazi as a Waco/Mc Murra Oklahoma kind of audience test. A test of the media power of obfuscation and censorship. A test that dulls the public mind leaving most Americans with little to ponder and nothing to question. As outrageous and cynical as this may seem to you, from an Ob and Hillary Hitlerian truth avoidance point of view, Benghazi was a major political finesse media victory. They put over a multi murder with complete cooperation of their propaganda protectors, Diane Sawyer, Brian Williams, Wolf Blitzer, the whole commie comrade lot. Consider that the cover-up and evasion of the Benghazi assassinations was a WH/media victory. Truism: there will never be an answer. Very much like so many surreptitiously "assisted" crises we suffer, that are repeatedly forced upon us.

Returning home from service in a war is never easy, and it is all the harder when veterans are maligned as dangerous time bombs. U.S. vets are a sweepingly broad group. It is surely fair to say that on the whole they have displayed a greater proclivity to national service than many of their fellow Americans. But beyond that, generalizations become dicey fast. (Snip)So it is now with the fury generated by a New York Times Op-Ed that was headlined, “Veterans and White Supremacy,” and that was illustrated by a drawing of soldiers saluting in silhouette — except one instead

Hillary Clinton and her friends in the media have been testing messages for her expected presidential campaign. The case for her will be built on four pillars: that allegations of her corruption are unfair; that she is highly accomplished; that she is above partisanship; and that she is a woman. The first three are dubious and the fourth will matter less than you may think. Do you remember Webb Hubbell, the McDougals, the missing Rose Law firm billing records, Travelgate, or Hillary’s surprise acumen at high-risk commodities trading? Super PACs and other groups will remind voters of all of these case

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Cost of Treatment May Influence Doctors

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office. It´s unclear which of his actions could be considered criminal.

CBO shows it’s Paul Ryan 4,

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

For Obamacare, What Counts As Success?

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
