Will Obama Hold Anyone
Accountable For Benghazi?

Investor´s Business Daily, by Michael Ramirez

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 8/27/2013 7:30:31 PM

The Obama administration has determined that no one should be held accountable for the deaths of four brave Americans in Benghazi. Sure, it might have been the first time in 33 years that an American ambassador was killed while in service, but according to the White House it just adds up to a "phony" scandal. Secretary of State John Kerry decided that midlevel staffers suspended for the lax security surrounding the Benghazi compound were cleared to resume their jobs. Apparently, eight months paid leave is enough punishment. You might recall that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wanted these same employees fired, but

Of course not!
That would be a confession of personal guilt.

Stevens our government reported died by "lethal injection" that´s supposed to be cute for raped to death...his torture included his genatalia being cut off...But hey...Obama was ahead in gin rummy..and had no stomach for watching a US Ambassador tortured to death-- too upsetting to him. Think Stevens was upset?

Libya is where the arms were transferred to Syria...And the terrorists yelled on video...Don´t shoot, "Morsi sent us" Muslim Brotherhood has acquired unimaginable power under Obama...I pray the Egyptian Millitary relieves them of all power..more Christians will survive without the IslamoFascists

Of course not. Because he´s at fault. And he´s never wrong. If you think he is, then you´re a racist. No investigation required. Judgment rendered.

Don´t you understand that Obama creates so much daily havoc that no one can keep up with it and yesterday´s scandals are buried in today´s chaos. Benghazi is not in the news, because now the Administration has cooked up a new crisis, Syria.

Stanley Ann (abandoning her child) and her parents´ (who expose Obama as a child to self-confessed pedophilic pornographer, Frank Marshall) messed up lives led to Obama´s pathological narcissism and coupled with the power-obscessed, Lucifer-admiring Alinski teaching (Rules for Radicals), has been pure, unmitigated disaster for US interests around the world which will take decades to undo. Hillary working from the same Alinski workbook is probably no better herself.

#7, is exactly right. We have scandal fatigue and Obama wants to keep it that way. Anytime Bamghazi is mentioned on TV, there will be a liberal shaking his head saying that is old news and that there were many investigations held, and Republicans only want to tarnish this administration´s reputation, end of story. We have no cogent argument. The Republicans went belly up on this just like they did on Fast and Furious. Obama has been a travesty and the Republicans with their passivity have enabled him.

Where is the UN when you need them. Oh that´s right, China and Russia are two of the five veto votes on the UN Security Council. There are no resolutions to be gained there.

Syria has cover where they need it. We are only going to war to save what´s left of Obama´s Muslim Brotherhood. How many people support them. We will soon find out.

NO ! obama is not more important than the men who died for our country and who seem to have very little value to him or to Congress at this point. Some very few are still investigating. That means they are still asking questions that will never be answered and the press means for it to stay that way. Washington is verrrry far from what it was designed to be. We seem to have ourselves a ruler not a president and not a single consequence for all that he has done illegally and unconstitutionally.

Right on 17, UDANJA99, "BAMGHAZI" tops Watergate, Waco, and covers the scandal crime machine in one original word. Congratulations!
Michael RAMIREZ is one heroic, irreverent, amazing individual who stands up daily for the toughest truth, irony and humor. RAMIREZ, keep writing! And, thanks to IBD for presenting the words of your rare talent.
Lucianne has done it again, taken the Michael RAMIREZ incredible review of the Benghazi crime of crimes and his details of it for all to keep, file, and pass on to every intelligent person they know. This frightening act of Hillary and Barry is being covered up DAILY by a blitz of other scandals. Enough scandals, they hope, and everybody will forget their Pearl Harbor debacle. They are BOTH involved in this one. This is, THE NEVER FORGET one that contains murderous intent and total, rank dishonesty. It is not a stretch to consider these two would be felons as outright criminals.
RAMIREZ, you´re the greatest !

To reply #10 and #11- No, you were correct the first time. It is Bamghazi, or to be more correct, Obamaghazi ! But the Government ´gas´ already moved FORWARD to a number of other scandalous actions, today´s being Obamasyrious. Our Government is far more serious than just dysfunctional, they are inherently maniacal. They intend to bring down the U.S.´ way of life, and the World´s stability, by their ideology, and let me be clear, it is on purpose. ( All my opinion ).

I wonder if the “suspended” staffers had to sign Non-disclosure Agreements, like the Benghazi survivors did, promising not to divulge – to Congress or the press ¬– anything that they were aware of that might contradict the administration’s “official version of the Benghazi fairy tale” or otherwise indicate even a molecule’s worth of responsibility on the part of Hillary, Obama or any other member of the administration.

You would think that at least one of the Benghazi survivors; White House, DOD or State Department staffers that know the truth about what really happened that night would either: a) feel that their duty to their country was more important than their duty to protect their corrupt “leaders”, or b) have an attack of conscience for the four Americans who needlessly died during the 7 ½ hour long attack; that they would be willing to step forward and reveal the truth to their fellow Americans.

But I guess that their misplaced loyalty will only allow them to leak information (like a sieve) that they are told to leak – to make Obama look good.

Land Management: A Chinese solar farm that fries birds is OK, as is redrawing tortoise habitat boundaries to benefit political donors.

Since taking office in 2009, President Barack Obama has formally proposed a total of 442 tax increases, according to an Americans for Tax Reform analysis of Obama administration budgets for fiscal years 2010 through 2015. The 442 total proposed tax increases does not include the 20 tax increases Obama signed into law as part of Obamacare. "History tells us what Obama was able to do.

It increasingly looks as if the Republicans will regain control of Congress this fall, with the GOP narrowly winning back a majority in the Senate and the House GOP either retaining or slightly building on its majority. But will the two top Republican leaders – House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell -- be around to enjoy the spoils of victory? Both Boehner of Ohio and McConnell of Kentucky are crafty and highly resilient veterans who would be difficult for their opponents to bring down even under the best of circumstances.

The SS-27 Mod 2 road-mobile ICBM was launched around 2:40 a.m. EST from Russia’s Plesetsk launch facility, located about 500 miles north of Moscow. “The main purpose of the launch is to validate the reliability of a batch of this class of missiles made at the Votkinsk Plant,” Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Yegorov told state-run Interfax-AVN.

Dubbed ‘Plan B’ the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has looked at the possibility of sucking carbon dioxide out of the air and reflecting sunlight into space. The document is important because it will be used as scientific guidance for governments as they negotiate a new global climate pact, set to be adopted in 2015 However some environmental activists watching the talks in Berlin believe geoengineering should not be attempted.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening.

Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday.

(Snip) Fortunately, a quick look at some of the anti-Semitic extremist websites has led to the following post by Mr. Miller, reproduced verbatim below: Israel Forming Super PAC to Attack Paul & Obama This is some big dookee, yaw’ll. http://runronpaul.com/interviews/isr…on-paul-obama/ Jew journalist Max Blumenthal exposes and explains this attempt by a foreign government Israel, to buy the presidential election for the neo-con, war-mongering republican
