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.

Applying Occam´s Razor, the coverup was done to get Little Barry reelected. Four lives are a small price in their calculus.

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.

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.

Unfortunately this horror story will stay moot until we, and only us, take it to the streets. The socialist´s will keep ignoring and obfuscating. Pelosi tactics work, Boner doesn´t have any; Issa stands alone I would offer however, that if the Hildebeast does become the center of attention again, may her opponent constantly point to the Vultures circling over her.

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.

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,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

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

´Deeply Ashamed´ Ferry Captain

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.

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

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

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Jews have reportedly been told to ´register´ with pro-Russian forces in the east Ukrainian city of Donetsk. They were also told they would need to provide a list of property they own as well as being ordered to pay a fee or face the threat of deportation. U.S. officials in Washington say leaflets bearing the chilling order have recently appeared in the city amid pro and anti-Russian protests as tensions rise in the area. It comes after Jews leaving a synagogue in the city of Donetsk were reportedly told they had to ´register´ with Ukranians trying to make the city part of Russia.United

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'

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.
