A closer look at the Benghazi lie
Washington Times, by Tom Fitton

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/10/2013 4:50:08 AM

The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was

The best and maybe only way to blow this case wide open would be the release of all of Amb.Steven´s emails to the state dept.Of course they´ve probably already destroyed all this evidence which should lead to a huge obstruction of justice charge on eveyrbody involved in the spin aftermath.

I think Stevens was murdered by his own government and we paid the terrorists to carry out the attack. This video story along with the 911 anniversary date were part of the cover up plot.

There has to be a very dirty secret to all this or they wouldn´t go through all the lying and cover ups.Even Obama not being available for response could be seen as a dereliction of duty.

Issa, Grassley and Boehner already have more than enough to nail the Obama administration to the wall over Fast & Furious, yet they refuse to pursue it. Why would they pursue this?

I believe #1 is correct and that is why this dastardly deed keeps getting "pivoted" by Zippy and his cohorts. There is something here that is unspeakably evil - it will come out.

#1...there was an interesting story a few months ago about how Russian intel had discovered the "running guns for the rebels in Syria" operation, and Obambi didn´t want to be exposed in the helping of the muslum bro´s. He wanted the whole thing cleaned up quickly so he could go to bed.

The Low-T Republicans do not have the fortitude to pursue a black President who they believe is held in high esteem by the country. Low-Ts ignore polling numbers and hope no one is paying attention to them. Like Obama in 2012, they just want to get throught the next election.

Senate attention could go a long way to resolving this. Maybe a serious challenge to John Cornyn will light a fire in that office.

Our ambassador and his staff died to protect Obama’s image on the eve of his re-election.

Obama’s only claim to any international achievement was his killing of Osama Bin Laden. That death was, according to the Democrats, proved that there were no ill effects of Obama’s insistence that America should no longer be strong.

Truth about the death of our ambassador would prove that we were both hated and weak. So, instead, the absurd lie about the video was invented to take the heat off Obama and allow him to sail back into the White House still claiming that he had Al Quida on the run.

It is outrageous that there seems to be no urgency to get to the truth of Benghazi. The act of outright lying to the American people by this vile administration should have lead to the questioning, under oath, of Obama by Congress. It has been proven that Obama and his lackeys knew they will telling a lie and yet, there have been NO consequences of that act. Where is the outrage? There are four Americans dead and many others wounded some very seriously. The President lied to the American public. Period. Have we gotten to the point in this country that integrity means nothing? The families deserve to know the truth. Obama should be MADE to testify and face the consequences of his actions. Nothing less should satisfy anyone. The fact that Hillary had the nerve to screech, "What difference, at this point, does it make?", and NO ONE challenged her says a lot about the state of politics today. Washington is a cesspool of amoral fools.

Folks, although I would love to see Obama impeached and the entire regime investigated, it just isn´t going to happen and I can see why.

First without majority support in the Senate it can never get done. Second the media would paint the Republicans day in day out as evil racist, who had always blocked every move Obama wanted to make and continually work against him. Third, the Republicans recall how many rallied behind Clinton in his trail because of the press and the many who felt sorrow for him.

Both of these charlatans can play the public like violins, especially, with thier large supporting cast of worshippers. Obama hopes they would try to impeach him...he and his fellowers would have a field day.

I support the ACLJ monetarily because they actually produce results. I hope you will consider doing so.

There are none so blind as those that will not see. Even if God came down and said that obama and hillary did this on purpose to save their careers the left would deny it and call Him racist. I cannot imagine what pain it must cause the families of Benghazi and Fast and Furious and all the military that died because of the new ´rules of engagement´ to have seen these people standing beside the coffins holding the bodies of any military or border agents . May God grant them His comfort.

JoeVan,

I disagree with one of your points. This doesn´t compare to Clinton´s foibles at all. There were actually four Americans who died on Obama´s unwatchful watch. I believe the public would largely ignore the MSM if the entire truth were to explode. A Senate majority in 2016 might finally lead to something. I can dream, can´t I?

I think the Americans killed and injured on the 9-11 attack in Benghazi were involved in a covert gun running scheme of Ghadaffi´s heavy weapons/arms to the rebels Al-Quaida in Syria.
They were exposed and Stevens either found out or was involved and all were exposed by someone. E-mails up to the attack would tell all. Obama and Hillary were derelict in duty for some reason. We know it was close to the election and Obama didn´t want a road block so Valarie Jarrett tucked him in bed and told him she would come up with something. We now know what the plan/excuse was.
If you don´t believe what I just said then I suggest you go with the disgruntled movie critic story.
Where is the movie producer? Is he still in jail as Obama´s first political prisoners?

First and foremost, we should all be committed to the single unifying goal of stopping HRC in her tracks.
We CAN do this. Benghazi is Hillary´s #1 vulnerability and even lofo voters would not approve of her refusing aid to a gay ambassador under attack. She CANNOT run if we keep Benghazi front and center because she cannot allow herself to be publicly drawn into that conversation. One way to do this is to force her into hiding by showing up at her public venues en bloc, in silent protest holding "BENGHAZI: HILLARY´S SHAME" or "WHO´S RESPONSIBLE FOR AMB STEVENS DEATH?" signs with bits and pieces of her famous screech: "I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you´re not patriotic." LOCAL media would cover it if enough of us participated. HRC would be forced to alter or discontinue her future scheduled public venues. She hides when she´s threatened.
But hundreds/thousands of us must show up! How do we organize such a happening? Where do we go to put ideas into action? Why can´t we organize on a national level? We´ve got to stop sitting around and whining!

I "think" these are the facts: Nakoula, the producer of the infamous video, is "out" as of Sept and on probation. In August I heard an interview of him while he was in a half-way house. It turned my stomach because he ´likes´ Obama and doesn´t blame him, just the faceless administration. "No comment" on HRC. Doesn´t the man realize he was vilified to get Obama re-elected and Obama himself blamed the video? My head explodes sometimes with the blind devotion to Obama.

It is impressive that this story has not died, but it will be hard to get justice with all the chaos our leader has dealt. I salute those who are devoted to seeing justice.

It isn´t only the network priests covering up Benghazi, it´s Boehner, Cantor, McCain, Buchanan, Rove, Chainey, each and every republican, who by their daily silence, and missing urgency, are also converting up this terrifying information from all of us American citizens.
We leave one lonely Issa type to plod along uneventfully. It´s thrilling to see JUDICIAL WATCH out there in the headline again, pursuing the truth. Sickening
that Judicial Watch does not have the wide open support
of many of our supposed good guys already !
Exposing the Evita/Barry cover up of this totally frightening disaster, will mean the career end of both these despicable liars. Judicial Watch knowing there is suppressed video and further revealing email correspondence, will finalize their downfall.

If I were involved in this cover up, I´d be afraid, very afraid, because I am dealing with intelligent, accomplished, and proven task masters.

Last week, i think it was, i received an email. It was on Benghazi, it was a series of photos with some descriptive text.

I began to scroll down to the first photo.

I have to tell you that even as i write this the nausea rises and chokes. This photo is purportedly Ambassador Stevens **in extremis** whether dead or not i don´t know.

Too gruesome, too horrible, too enraging if this is what happened to the Ambassador... OR ANYONE, if what is seen is as described.

Inadvertently i deleted the email, but i plan to ask Sen. Ayotte about this; because if there is evidence like this, of what really happened to the Ambassador, sensibilities ought not be spared.

The truth matters, above all. Yes, Hillary, at this point it DOES matter and it always will.

#18 – Regarding the maker of the excuse video, it has long been my theory that he was an “operative” of the regime and your tidbit of information adds to this assertion. He is neither an innocent victim nor a political prisoner of the Obama cabal.

The first reference to violence sparked by an “offensive” video was part of the “official comment” made by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo in response to the Muslim Brotherhood backed demonstration at their location during the day of September 11, 2012. This indicates that “a video” had already been selected as the scapegoat to blame for the planned attacks against American interests on the 11th anniversary of 9-11. I think the Cairo demonstration was intended to “set the stage” for the planned night raid on the Benghazi location.

Within a few days the propaganda ministry (MSM) had released the name of the video maker, including specific references that he was a Coptic Christian implying his “slander” was religiously motivated. Before any independent journalists could talk to the video maker he was publicly arrested by the Los Angeles County Sheriffs on the charge of a probation violation, a convenient restriction against all use of the Internet, and was quickly whisked behind prison walls and held incommunicado.

Cont.

The video maker is a convicted fraud. Only the propaganda ministry claimed he was a Coptic Christian. No one from the Coptic or immigrant Egyptian community spoke on his behalf. No lawyer, not even the ACLU, or family members made a stink that he was being unfairly jailed, even after the sham of the video excuse was publicly exposed.

I contend that the cabal has dozens of videos in the can ready to trot out to cover up their destabilization of the Middle East and northern Africa. In this case there was an Egyptian, convicted of fraud, probably a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer, who would make a good operative to take the fall for a plea deal. I’d like to see this “video maker’s” bank account.

The Obama administration could keep the news from affecting their own reelection.

Yet by pushing it back, effect on the next election should be magnified. The administration and their news media propagandists are already taking a beating for their lack of truthfulness on a range of issues.

Here´s the Big Picture.

The way to win the 2014 midterm elections and have majorities in both the
House and Senate starting in 2015 is to bring out the bombshells
(in this case probably literally) during the months leading up to November 2014.
This time period is known as the run-up.

Issa and his committee have been gathering evidence and doing a thorough job
during the interim, so they can bring out their biggest points at
the most advantageous time.

This is probably also why Boehner has just made a budget deal.
Keep the focus on Americans´ hatred of O-BomberKommieKare...
don´t let the MSM refocus blame on the GOP House for a shutdown.

If O-BomberKommieKare and Benghazi are big negative issues against
the DimWitz in the run-up to the 2014 voting, that may help.
Once the GOP controls both House and Senate in 2015, we´ll get to
The Rest of the Story... fighting O-Bomber and Hill-err-ee-ass in every way.

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers.

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable.

Feds Begin Fingerprinting ´High Risk´

Four years after Obamacare became law, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is notifying Medicare providers and suppliers of new fingerprint-based background checks. Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste.

Obama Administration Wants UN to Come Up With
Fake Numbers to Back ‘Climate Change’ Legislation
PJ Media, by Bryan Preston    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/16/2014 4:33:40 AM     Post Reply
The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

The Pulitzer Prize board has just managed to do the impossible. It has awarded a prize that deserves to be spoken of in the same conversation with its risible 1932 award to the New York Times correspondent Walter Duranty for articles whitewashing the evils of Stalinist Russia. The award of the Public Service prize to the Washington Post and the Guardian for serving as a mouthpiece for Edward Snowden is an attempt by the journalistic establishment to put its stamp of approval on the actions of one of the most destructive traitors in U.S. history—a former NSA contractor who has done

A Texas man was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in state prison for urinating on the Alamo. Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

Republicans, let´s get it over with. Fast forward to the finish line. Avoid the long and winding primary road. It can only weaken the nominee. And we know who he—yes, he—has to be. Not Jeb Bush, who plainly is unsuited to be president. He is insufficiently hostile to Mexicans. He holds heretical views on the Common Core, which, as we well know, is the defining issue of our time. And he´s a Bush. Another installment of a political dynasty just isn´t going to fly with the American people, who want some fresh blood in their politics. Unless the dynasty is

When I first started hearing people on the political left describe themselves with some frequency as progressive back in the 1990s, the term did not seem tethered to the epoch-defining, early-20th-century spasm of moral crusading and government centralization that helped give us everything from trust busting to Prohibition to the Federal Reserve. As articulated by champions like Ralph Nader and Molly Ivins, the progressive label was both a way to get out from under the generation-old baggage of liberal-a term Ronald Reagan and others had turned into an epithet-and to differentiate lefties from seemingly apologetic triangulators like Bill Clinton and

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

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)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive
