Benghazi

The Name Game

  “Like Manchurian candidates, we have been made into Manchurian consumers, who subconsciously buy when we are triggered by our brand masters.” – Bryant H. McGill Name recognition.  It’s why corporations spend millions plastering their emblems on every stray sporting venue that seats more than 5 people; why jingle writers drive Cadillacs; why, in politics as in nursery schools, rhyme is always more effective than reason; and why Hillary Clinton, according to a March poll conducted by the Associated Press, is viewed more favorably than crab lice by 1,016 randomly chosen American idiots. This is a woman, after all, who […]

Recently Declassified Information Shows President Obama Knew That Benghazi was a Terrorist Attack

If you recall, the mantra from the Obama administration in the weeks immediately following the Benghazi terrorist attack was that an obscure YouTube video with a handful of views was the cause of the attack.  Additionally, the attack was characterized as a spontaneous uprising, rather than a planned attack.  It didn’t take long to expose all of those details as lies, but the administration has continued the lie and deny strategy, with amply assistance with from the MSM.  However, recently declassified information reveals that the President knew about that attack from the earliest moments.  America’s Watchtower has more… The proof […]

Government Screw-Ups-No One Is Ever Fired

When I saw this headline on an entry at Foreign Policy.Com, my interest was piqued: The Biggest Foreign Policy Screw-Up of 2013 I thought: “This has got to be good considering all of the competition in the screw-up category”. I was surprised when I read that the author, Daniel W. Drezner, choose this adminstration’s handling the Edward Snowden affair as this year’s worse screw-up. Specifically, he was talking about a time six weeks after Snowden fled the country and was in Russia seeking asylum. That when the government, using its proxies: Portugal, Spain, France, and Italy to refuse to allow Bolivian […]

Tomorrow, September 11, 2013, is ‘Don’t Blog About Obama Day!’

Bob Belvedere, proprietor at The Camp of the Saints, has a great suggestion, with a rationale provided by Robert Stacey McCain… This morning, Stacy McCain published the following remarks: You’re not supposed to say that The Syrian Crisis has been manufactured for domestic political purposes. The underlying situation is legitimately serious enough — a two-year civil war in which the dictatorship has allegedly used sarin nerve gas against civilians. The problem is that this administration is so dishonest and cynical, so committed to campaigning and so inept at governing, that whatever they do, our natural suspicion is that they’re playing […]

Your Obama Scandal Template™

Nothing to see here. Move along. With the many scandals now surrounding the Obama administration many have asked yours truly to stop texting them photos of my penis when I will apply my world famous templates to this.  Always willing to listen to my public except when they get restraining orders I now present for your edification the Obama Scandal Template™. The IRS is accused of inappropriately targeting your political opponents Humbly ask the American people for forgiveness.  After all, you are the President.  The buck stops with you Deny any and all knowledge of anything the IRS may or […]

Politics is Scandalous: Media Continues to Protect Obama

For weeks I’ve been visiting the Huffington Post and looking for stories on Benghazi.  To nobody’s surprise, I found almost nothing.  On the days that big stories broke on even the major news networks, nothing was to be found on the HuffPo.  The last few days have been quite different – Benghazi everywhere!  When the IRS and AP stories broke, nothing on HuffPo, but the stories are mentioned now.  Is the HuffPo that slow to respond to news? The stories are to be found on the biggest political blog in the world, but they were buried for bigger headlines like […]

IRS Harassment of Conservative Groups Extended to Other IRS Offices, Including DC

The IRS scandal took another turn late yesterday, when it was discovered that not only did the Cincinnati office take part, but others, including the DC office, were engaged as well.  Also, it is noted that the head of the IRS knew as well, and said nothing for quite some time. Legal Insurrection has more… The Washington Post reports tonight, IRS officials in Washington were involved in targeting of conservative groups: Internal Revenue Service officials in Washington and at least two other offices were involved in the targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, making clear the effort reached well […]

MSM Reports What the Rest of us Have Known for Months: Military Help for Benghazi was Available but Denied

At last, the MSM is starting to report what we knew all along-that military help was available to relieve Benghazi, but was denied. The deputy of slain U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens has told congressional investigators that a team of Special Forces prepared to fly from Tripoli to Benghazi during the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks was forbidden from doing so by U.S. Special Operations Command Africa.   The account from Gregory Hicks is in stark contrast to assertions from the Obama administration, which insisted that nobody was ever told to stand down and that all available resources were utilized. Hicks gave […]

Benghazi: Officials are Finally Coming Out of the Shadows With Explosive New Information

The mainstream media has tried extremely hard to bury the story, but the tragic events surrounding the attack on our compound in Benghazi that led to the death of four Americans will not go away.  With little to no answers the administration that promised to leave no stone unturned in order get to the bottom of this is now taking a “nothing to see here…move along” attitude.  The proverbial “These are not the droids you’re looking for” line from Star Wars appears to be the tactic this administration is running with.  However, new information from inside sources appears to contradict […]

The American Idle

Why Obama keeps the press away – playing golf with Tiger Woods doesn’t look good with 12 million Americans out of work and a $16 trillion debt – Telegraph Obama’s latest mini-vacation follows in the wake of his lavish Christmas/ New Year holiday on Kailua Beach in Oahu, Hawaii, which cost U.S. taxpayers an estimated $7 million. … According to [White House Correspondent Keith] Koffler,”the total cost to taxpayers of Obama’s vacations to Hawaii since becoming president is likely in excess of $20 million, and possibly much, much more.”  … The optics certainly don’t look good for a president who […]

Congressional Testimony Reveals Obama Lazy, Dishonest, Incompetent

It is important to not forget that when our nation faced a crisis on September 11, 2012, that the President of the United States did not discharge his duties to his greatest abilities and as a direct result of that several Americans died, including an Ambassador who was murdered on American territory. Of course I am referring to the attack on our country in Benghazi last year, where more details are coming to light after the Presidential election. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s testimony was fairly useless- she used the opportunity to testify in front of our elected officials about […]

Massive Projection on Display: Democrat Hank Johnson Wants to Limit Free Speech

We like to say that you always know what the Democrats are up to based on what they accuse everyone else of doing.  Here’s Hank Johnson, a Democratic Congress critter, on why he thinks free speech is a terrible thing… OK, let’s look at some points here… “They control the patterns of thinking,” said Johnson. “They control the media. They control the messages that you get. So, you are being taught to hate your government – don’t want government, but keep your hands off of my Medicare by the way. I mean, we are all confused people and we’re poking fingers at […]

It’s time to do the right thing…Fire John Boehner?

For the last couple of days I’ve been observing the Benghazi hearings and the negotiations going on with John Boehner and Democratic leaders to prevent us from going off a fiscal cliff.  It appears the left cares more about politicizing events to advance the agenda of their political party than doing what’s right and good for America and I’m personally tired of it.  Benghazi is a no-brainer. After seven hours of fighting and numerous requests for help, we failed to answer the call and left our citizens to die in the streets of Benghazi.  This alone is absolutely unacceptable, but […]

The Benghazi Fiasco. Why? Why? WHY?!!!

Nearly eight weeks after the Benghazi fiasco on September 11, 2912 and we have no answers. All we have are questions. WHY? The answer obviously is this administration, this President, this Commander-in-Chief refuses to tell us what happened and why. And, apart from Fox News, the rest of the media has treated the Benghazi attack the killed an US ambassador for the first time in thirty years and three other Americans as a non-event. WHY? We are left to surmise that President Obama wanted to keep a lid on things until after the election when supposedly he could be more flexible. And, of […]

Did Our President and Others Commit Treason In Benghazi?

In spite of all the reasons I have to not like this President, Barack Obama, it is with a heavy heart that I approach the question in today’s title. I have had strong differences with most of the presidents in my life time, however, I have never questioned a president’s loyalty to country or to the men and women who serve our country. Yet the bizarre handling by this president and his surrogates of the attacks on our diplomatic mission in Libya and the events leading up to the attacks, compels me to ask if Barack Obama and his senior […]

Benghazi Update: Drone Overhead During Attack

It seems that the more that comes out about Benghazi, the worse it looks for the Obama Administration.  Yesterday, we learned that while the attack was ongoing, there was drone coverage overhead.  It was being watched, and there was obviously real-time information in the hands of the administration.  CDN Has more…    On the eve of the final Presidential debate, CBS reported the US had drones overhead watching the attack at Benghazi.  ”Watched” is the key word here, “watched” for seven hours.   This attack was not over in minutes.  So what if anything, did the “powers that be” do during these seven hours?  The answer seems to be […]

Benghazi Update: What Did President Obama do from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM on September 11, 2012, An Analysis of the Timeline and Administration Responses

The buck stops at the top on this one. Via memeorandum I saw this CBS News storyCould U.S. military have helped during Libya attack?: …Some lawmakers are asking why U.S. military help from outside Libya didn’t arrive as terrorists battered more than 30 Americans over the course of more than seven hours. The assault was launched by an armed mob of dozens that torched buildings and used rocket propelled grenades, mortars and AK-47 rifles. CBS News has been told that, hours after the attack began, an unmanned Predator drone was sent over the U.S. mission in Benghazi, and that the drone and […]

Intelligence Community Critical of Obama Administration Actions in Libya

As times wears on, we are finding out more and more about the Obama administration’s incompetence in Libya.  The failures, the lies, the avoidance, more lies-it’s all part of how this story is unfolding.  And, if the MSM was doing it’s job, rather than being a regressive propaganda machine.  It would be front page news.  Doug Ross (no relation) has the latest on the failure and resulting cover-up… I wonder if releasing a movie that depicts the president double-tapping Bin Laden will help? REVOLT OF THE SPOOKS Intelligence officials angered by Obama administration cover up of intelligence on Iranian, al […]

Libya Update: Numerous Requests for Increased Security Denied

In the unfolding Libya story, it appears that the Embassy staff in Libya repeatedly requested increases in security, and all were denied. Gateway Pundit has more… The AP reported: American diplomats in Libya made repeated requests for increased security for the consulate in Benghazi and were turned down by officials in Washington, leaders of a House committee said Tuesday. In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Chairman Darrell Issa and Rep. Jason Chaffetz said their information came from “individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya.” Issa, R-Calif. and Chaffetz, R-Utah said the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi that […]

Government Lying To Americans: A Proud Tradition

For the better part of two weeks, America has been treated to a continuous stream of lies and cover ups over what transpired in Libya and Egypt and why it happened. The spin doctors were working over time to convince America and the world that the attacks on our embassies and the murders of our Libyan Ambassador and three of his staff was nothing but a spontaneous reaction to some You Tube video insulting of Islam.. In spite of this administrations best efforts, along with a compliant  media to protect the reputation of The Leader From Behind, the story came unraveled […]
