Benghazi Victim’s Mother: Obama,
Clinton, and Biden Lied To Me

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 9/20/2013 5:51:54 AM

Patricia Smith, the mother of Benghazi victim Sean Smith, testified Thursday at the House Oversight Committee that President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, among other top administration officials, initially told her the attack was the result of a YouTube video. That explanation, which was then disseminated by Susan Rice during her infamous appearances on Sunday talk shows the following weekend, was quickly proven to be false. A visibly upset Smith said she was told lies at the casket ceremony for her son and that she and other American people “don’t matter” in the eyes of the

The sheer desperation to cover-up Benghazi, from the very highest level around and including Dear Leader, should be a clear indication of just how damning to their political careers the truth must be...

For me the issue is not that they lied (I expected nothing less from them). The issue is so many don´t care. All this deception to cover obama´s and hillary´s ass. Disgusting.

I don´t understand why more relatives of the victims of the obama"administration" don´t come forward. obama and his minions have been lying to this country for all the years he has been running for office or has been IN office. Shame, shame on the pathetic "msm" who use weeks to persecute a man like George Zimmerman falsely but then hide under their desks when it comes to questioning the great-and-powerful-oz-obama! Unless someone has lost a beloved child, there is no way to understand the pain the Benghazi victim´s families are going through. Prayers go out to them.

I, too, was surprised that other family members did not show up. And then I thought of the non-disclosure statements the victims had to sign and the repeated lie detector tests and goodness knows what else this regime has put them all through, and thought they are afraid. Although one of the dead soldier´s mother is a new england liberal and thinks the world of obama....even after this. The democrats behaved disgracefully when they walked out on the families statements. Shows their real contempt for our military and our country.

The Obama regime has gone to extraordinary lengths to bury the fact that they were supplying weaponry to sworn enemies of the United States. This is the crux of the cover-up and is a crime of treason for all involved.

The "Casket Ceremony" is when the caskets with bodies arrived at Dover. She had asked the government to fly her there and they said "No" since she was not immediate family. Sean Hannity had her on his show immediatley after the Benghazi killings-----then weeks later when she was back on his show........SHE THANKED HIM for Paying for her to attend the return of bodies; otherwise she would not have been in attendance.

Nothing would have kept me away from that hearing knowing my son died that night because this administration CHOSE not to launch an attempt to rescue him. I applaud Mr. Woods and Mrs. Smith. Don´t ever give up until you get the answers you deserve.

Those despicable democrats who left the hearing room rather than have the decency to listen to these two heart broken parents sets a new low even for the democrats. What callous disrespectful thoughtless cowards you are. The fact that you could turn your back on these grieving parents speaks volumes for your lack of character. This was a breathtakingly small and petty display.

Benghazi is proof that Shrillary was right when she said Obumbler wasn´t prepared to take that 3 a.m. call. It also proved she wasn´t ready to take that call, either, and the cover-up is more about saving her presidential ambitions than it is about protecting Odumbdumb.

“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?” Hillary Clinton.

We need to post her whole quote from now on. When it gets shortened to just the "What difference does it make?" soundbite, the screamingly obvious lie gets edited out.

They put them there, caused their deaths and lied about it all. Then they posed with their caskets. Nothing and no one have ever done less to aid their countrymen and more to take and use for their own benefit than these. Heaven will not be seen by these people. My prayers go out to the families, who , on top all of this pain , were slapped in the face by the crudely behaved Democrats who walked out. Their behavior shames them , not the victims families.

As for the MSM, they must go. They are tyrants and traitors, and can be decimated, but only if we have the courage and strength to remove them.

After all, look what we´ve done (and they helped, of course) to CNN.

We need to stop them or they will destroy out country. Period.

It wasn´t all that long ago and a different administration when Maureen Dowd wrote that mothers, in her case, Cindy Sheehan, had absolute moral authority. Guess that moral authority depends on who is in the White House.

Tammy Duckworth, double amputee war veteran - all of that is erased by the D after her name.

Hypocrisy of this magnitude would have destroyed the careers of politicians in an era when the media at least paid lip service to impartial reporting. I still remember Maureen Dowd´s column in the NYT in which she conferred "absolute moral authority" on Cindy Sheehan. I clearly recall the liberals and progressives adopting the mantra that because of her personal loss, Cindy had the moral high ground on the Bush Administration. Treating the parents of the survivors of Bengazi with such obvious contempt demonstrates why these folks cannot be trusted with public office. These progressives are shameless partisans whose only interest is power.

Some call the democrats ´cowards´ for walking out. That doesn´t begin to cover their disgraceful actions. The dems put politics above simple human decency and still have the benefit of media protection. Thanks to the latter´s mythmaking machine, democrats are still viewed as compassionate. It´s maddening.

Good comments, posters. The dignity of Charles Woods and the heartbreak of Pat Smith were quite moving to see. All they´re asking for is accountability. Ms. Smith said that every time she sees the bloody handprint on that wall in Benghazi she asks herself if it belonged to her son. And she still doesn´t how. The selfish, perhaps traitorous, heartlessness of this administration and of Hillary are there for all to see. That stone cold wretch should never be able to get any where near the levers of power again. Ever.

In fairness, Darrell Issa, at one point, turned to his right and thanked Elijah Cummings for staying for the whole hearing, including the parents´ testimony.

Maybe we should not worry about contacting our Senators and Reps but instead contact the media for their utter negligence and ulterior motives for hiding and omitting important news. We have a generation of young people who pride themselves on NOT following news and who simply vote for who has the best handout package. But, one day, when they are the victims, it will matter but it may be too late.

See how they run! Democrats, Liberals, Progressives, Socialists, Communists, Cockroaches… makes no difference what alias they’re using at the moment, they’re all one and the same. Yesterday, they scattered like cockroaches do when a light goes on. Without a moment’s hesitation, they vacated the hearing room when family members of the deceased Benghazi victims were about to testify. The Cockroach Party representatives inhumanely chose not to hear what those family members had to say. If you’ve ever wondered what makes a Democrat tick, now you know.

In Madame Rodham-Clinton´s case, should anyone really expect the truth from our 67th Secretary of State, a public official who, just for starters, has previously informed us: (A) She was named after New Zealand´s Sir Edmund Hillary (B) Came under intense sniper fire in Bosnia (C) Learned how to make a fortune in the cattle futures market from THE WALL STREET JOURNAL (D) Is a lifelong "devoted" Yankees fan and (E) Once stated her daughter Chelsea was jogging around The World Trade Center on September 11, 2001?

i can´t figure out WHY no one seems to care - about this or much of anything else. is it because those of us who work for a living are too busy trying to survive to mount complaints, is it fear of our government, or simply no one is listening anymore? or is it that they hate conservatives more than they dislike the current administration? my husband is a fine man. hard working, kind (to everyone, even conservatives), smart (in most things), and a great father. but, when it comes to his politics, he defends obama at every opportunity, believes almost everything printed in the msm, and watches the abc networks exclusively for his news. i think he exemplifies the current democrat. his lack of curiosity about the scandals is utterly mystifying to me. and, saddest of all (we´ve been married 33 years) we both agree, that had we met now, we wouldn´t even date much less marry. what have we (collectively) come to?

Not surprising and easy to see why the Dems ran like roaches from the force of this testimony. They didn´t want to hear the truth spoken face to face, and they didn´t want to look the truth-teller in the eye.

Tammy Duckworth (Iraq War Veteran and former Assistant Secretary of Veterans Affairs), what say you about leaving these men behind? Why did you leave their parents behind when they came to testify before you?

The smoking gun for me was that the last person to visit Stevens was a Turkish representative. It is known that Turkey is a conduit for arms shipments to Syrian rebels. There was no reason for a clandestine meeting between Americans and Turks at the outpost in Benghazi.

These poor families are caught up in one of the largest and deepest coverups in US history. The illegal transfer of weapons to a foreign government with full knowledge that they would go to al-Qaeda affiliated groups is explosive.

The coverup participants include both Republicans and Democrats. Obama may have been a bystander. As usual, just my opinion.

The Democratic Party should change its mascot to the ostrich. In former congressman (now judge) James Rogan´s magnificent book "Catching Our Flag," the former Senate impeachment manager says that not a single House Democrat walked into the evidence room to look at even one document during the weeks of hearings by the Judiciary Committee on which he served. Democratic legislators avert their gaze from the sins of their leaders and follow in lock step behind them. For all the curiosity they show, they might as well serve in the Parliament of the Peoples Republic of Korea.

The democrats at the hearing, WALK OUT ON A BENGHAZI VITICTIM’S MOTHER? The democrat communists get away with this brutal behavior soley, soley, because the Diane Sawyers TV news actors permit it and therefore encourage this bestial behavior. We know legislators are violent, reckless stupid people, but they get away with it because they know Diane Sawyers will say and report nothing.
Obama’s administration brings American honest patriotism to an all time low, and all time high for unbelievable deceit. It is not difficult to imagine that all potential witnesses to the Benghazi slaughter are being threatened, by their own government, with immediate violent death for them and their entire families, if they utter a single word of witness. How terrifying is that ?

Is it that the democrats are so fearful of the evil witch evita, that they walked out on her avoiding Mrs Smith’s words for fear of feeling compassion for her?? If you think the witnesses are in danger of their lives for coming forward to bear witness, it’s so bad that those that interview the witnesses are also in fear of their lives for not totally protecting the topmost elite evil witch in the evil hierarchy that has become our current administration. Look at all the lesser evil people who have LEFT the administration … … a lengthening list of self protective survivors. Remember the Clinton Body Count Death List

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/19/2014 5:55:20 PM     Post Reply
President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings.

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building." The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it.

Some good folks are pig-biting mad about my recent article noting that the rate of foreclosures has dropped dramatically as a result of the reinflation of the real estate market.(Snip for tweet)Some of the vituperation is coming from the usual gang of housing justice fairness activists incensed that anybody (let alone a majority of homeowners and experts) would oppose the practice of giving public assistance to people who borrowed money with no intention of paying it back. But a lot of the abuse stems from a sentiment I agree with — that declaring victory on mortgage defaults means you have

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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'

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

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

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

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.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

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?
