Obama accused of misleading voters
on Benghazi, Obamacare, Merkel.
There´s a pattern here

Telegraph [UK], by Tim Stanley

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 10/28/2013 9:38:03 PM

We all expect presidents to be "economical with the truth" at least once in their career--but in the last few days Barack Obama´s administration has been charged with telling no fewer than three fibs on three separate subjects. [Snip] 1. CBS says that the Obama administration knew all along that what happened at Benghazi was a planned terrorist attack. Its 60 Minutes news show discovered two security advisers who say that months before the attack on the US embassy, al-Qaeda threatened to assault the Red Cross, the British and then the Americans. And--surprise, surprise--they went on to assault the Red

Yup there´s a pattern alright and it´s about as complex to put together as a child´s 12 piece puzzle, yet for some odd reason it has befuddled our Butt-Kissing, Knee-Pad morons in the news media for years! Imagine that!

All Obama does when he´s under fire for something is act like there´s nothing wrong. "What´s all this shoutin´ about?" And then just for good measure,he throws in a couple new sophmoric lies.

What´s really amazing is that it´s taken 5 years for people to start catching on to this clown.I knew he was bad news when he made his 1st big appearance at Kerry´s convention in 2004.People that give these dreamworld speeches and dubious promises are alway out of touch with reality.

Shame on you, Mr. Stanley. You cantered right up to the fence and then balked.

"Fibs," "misled," "fudging," and their ilk are word for children and cowards. They can easily be replaced by "lies," "lied," and "lying" -- three words that do not appear anywhere in this otherwise spot-on report.

Obama does what he does best, he loves him some Obama. Therefore, everything he does is sifted through that truth. He has believed the hype that the progressives have fed him all his life. He really believed he was the one we´ve been waiting for. He bought it hook, line and sinker. However, his incompetence has caught up with him and all he has are lies to offers and he does so without fear of confrontation. This is what enables him to continue in this behavior. If he were confronted on a daily basis, you would see a meltdown of epic proportions. He is a fragile little flower and the media is committed to caring for him. The day they take the gloves off, his house of cards collapses.

Since everything Obama does is to mislead, deliberate deception how hard would it be to bring articles of impeachment and removal from office? He can´t be trusted and our country is more important than how Obama feels.

Very excellent idea, #15. Call a chosen Senator or Rep and suggest the creation of a special Lemon Law application for overturning the ACA abomination.

#20, discussing things with an acquaintance, telling her about --at that time new news-- Fast & Furious, Solyndra and other issues, she said she "still had faith in him." Why? i asked. "I don´t know. I just do." This is the blind faith of Low Information Voters.

And it is shocking, really, to know that They Are Out There, voting.

If their political religion were only kept to themselves, we would be okay. They could whistle along their primrose paths right into the grave, by themselves. But they are dragging the rest of us along with them.

#27 -- I am aware of British libel laws (and their corresponding venue-shopping by prospective plaintiffs), and of the damning weight of the word "liar." I´d give a lot to know whether Stanley´s piece, as submitted, called a spade a spade, and the Torygraph´s legal beagles wussified it. I would suspect so, given the absence of the standard "ask-it-as-a-question" dodge ("Did Obama mislead voters?" and so on).

That said, can anyone seriously think that -- even bearing the burden of proof -- Stanley would have any trouble proving his case?

About Benghazi I still want to know, if the US military was incapable of coming to the aid of Chris Stevens and his people, who gave the order for the CIA group to STAND DOWN! After all, they were only blocks away. If they had been allowed to respond immediately, rather than being repeatedly delayed, our ambassador and his people could very well be alive today.

The widow of Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs is ´ready´ for Hillary Clinton, and she´s written a hefty check to prove it. Laurene Powell Jobs has given $25,000 to the ´Ready for Hillary´ super PAC, a political campaign organization that has raised more than $4 million to lay the groundwork needed for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton´s expected White House run. Sharon Elghanayan Corzine, the wife of former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine, also put $25,000 on the table. So did gay-rights philanthropist Tim Gill, who created the one-time desktop publishing software powerhouse Quark Xpress.

A grinning, chuckling Kathleen Sebelius stood alongside President Barack Obama on Friday morning, accepting praise that has eluded her throughout Obamacare´s troubled early months. Only 10 days ago, the president ignored her as he took a victory lap when the Affordable Care Act´s signup numbers crested above 7 million. But he had kind words for the health insurance warrior in her final public appearance as a federal government employee.

Sue Townsend was working on a new Adrian Mole novel when she died, with the working title of Pandora’s Box.

It is not known if the author had completed a first draft, and it will now be up to her family to decide what, if anything, of the project will be published. The working title raises the wonderful prospect that Townsend planned for her hero to be romantically reunited with Pandora, object of his affection since

WASHINGTON--Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning from the Obama administration after the rocky rollout of President Barack Obama´s signature health care law, a White House official said Thursday. Her resignation comes just one week after the end of the first enrollment period for the Obamacare law. While the opening weeks of the rollout were marred by website woes, the administration rebounded strongly by enrolling more than 7 million people in the new insurance marketplaces. Sebelius´ resignation following her five-year tenure in Obama´s Cabinet comes as the White House seeks to rebound from the politically damaging launch of the health

Global solar dominance in sight

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said Thursday that 7.5 million Americans had enrolled in Obamacare insurance coverage by the time the dust settled on April 1, but reused to tell senators how many of them were already covered before the law took full effect. The question is an important one: Republicans claim that most of those who signed up are Americans who lost their existing policies in 2013 because they didn´t meet the Affordable Care Act´s strict and sometimes bewildering minimum standards. President Barack Obama promised that his signature insurance overhaul law would dramatically reduce the ranks of the

One week ago, President Obama was celebrating. 7.1 million Americans had signed up to his landmark law. Today however, it’s the same old story. Once again, Obamacare is critical. The latest crisis? For Americans who don’t yet possess health insurance, the US health care market is now effectively on lockdown until the year’s end. Yes, you heard that right. [Snip] The flowing narrative is all too clear--didn’t sign up by the President’s shifting deadlines? Take a hike. This latest incident speaks volumes about Obamacare--a law that was born in arrogant partisanship and is now defined by utter absurdity.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
