Revisited: Obama’s Ties to the Nation of Islam and Libya

Editor’s Note: This is an article that goes hand-in-hand with a previous article published here at CH2.0, entitled, “The Obama Administration’s Muslim Connections Run Deep“. It was written by one of our excellent staff contributors, Jim from Asylum Watch, in which he detailed the Obama Administration’s close relationship with radical Islam. This is an article that was written early in 2011 when Muammar al-Gaddafi in Libya was still alive, but it aptly demonstrates President Barack Obama’s ties with radical Islam. February 25, 2011 via Present Discontent – In 1984, Louis Farrakhan and Reverend Jeremiah Wright traveled to Libya to be […]

Radical Islam: The Obama Administration Does Not Or Can Not Learn From Experience

  Whatever your opinion of Bush’s prolonged war in Afghanistan or the war in Iraq, you probably were never under the impression that President Bush underestimated radical Islamist groups like al Qaeda or the intentions of Iran to become a nuclear power. President Obama and his administration, on the other hand, continue to repeat the same mistakes over and over again in their dealings with Iran and with radical Islamist groups like al Qaeda and it’s now famous spin-off group, ISIS. Our current Nobel Peace winning President has bombed Muslims in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq (now for the second time), Libya, […]

The Emirates and Egypt Attack Islamist Forces in Libya _ A Positive Step?

It was about the time that President Obama announced his red line in the sands of Syria that Asylum Watch did a piece promoting the idea that America should stop fighting the proxy wars in the Middle East at the behest of its “partners” in the region; i.e., Saudi Arabia, the Arab Emirates, the Gulf State, and etc. The argument was that the United States had been providing arms, aircraft, and training to the militaries of its “partners for decades and it was high time they took on the responsibility of resolving regional issues themselves. In other words, we should […]

Gowdy on Benghazi Investigation: “…we are going to do it methodically, professionally.”

Hat/Tip to Conservative Tribune. As we all know, Congressman and former Federal Prosecutor, Trey Gowdy has been appointed Chair of a select committee to investigate the events at Benghazi that led to the deaths of four American citizens, including our Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens. But true to his undefeated streak as a prosecutor, he is taking his time and not rushing into anything. After Congress returns from their August recess, Gowdy intends to begin holding hearings with the Benghazi Select Committee, most likely in early September. Gowdy has already promised to subpoena Hillary Clinton and compel her to testify, […]

Well Choreographed Chaos in Iraq

  Fox News _ “Earlier this week, one Iraqi in the area cried to the world, `There is no one coming to help.’ Well, today, America is coming to help,” Obama said. “We’re also consulting with other countries — and the United Nations — who have called for action to address this humanitarian crisis.” _ (emphasis added) The “humanitarian crisis” is taking place in Iraq and is the result of the cumulative barbaric genocidal acts of  another Islamic extremist group calling themselves ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) or IS (Islamic State) against non-Muslims and Muslim whose belief in Islam […]

Obama’s Foreign Policy In One Word: Chaos

How  could President Obama’s foreign policy be described as anything other than utter confusion and disorder? The Middle East is best example of America’s foreign policy of chaos under the Obama administration. The world is shaking its collective head at the mess Obama’s policies have made of Libya and Egypt. But, the crown jewel of chaos has to be the mess in Syria and Iraq. To be fair, it was the previous idiot President who decided to dethrone the long time Sunni Muslim president of Iraq and allow the majority of Iraqis to elect a Shia Muslim president, who would […]

Muslim Lobbyist Appointed to Benghazi Select Committee – Hello Trey?!?!

If Philip Kiko is the “Majority Staff Director” for the House Select Committee on Benghazi, I’m expecting the “Minority Staff Director” to be, maybe, CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad, or Dalia Mogahed. It’s not a stretch. I admit I don’t know much about the way a House Select Committee is formed. I haven’t found anything explaining why an outside “majority staff director” is needed, but assuming one is needed, why has Rep. Trey Gowdy chosen lobbyist, Philip Kiko, who has worked on behalf of the most liberal of all organizations (see that partial list below). According to a link at Shoebat.com, among Kiko’s […]

Bombshell: New Source Tells Allen West of Weapons Scheme Behind Benghazi Cover Up

Hat/Tip allenbwest.com . Former Representative Allen West (R) reveals the truth behind the lies and obfuscations by the Obama administration regarding the Benghazi attacks on 9/11/’12. He comes by this via a new source, which he explains below: Today as I returned from Detroit, I had a moment that I truly felt was God sent, as I don’t believe in coincidences. It happened on one of my flights, and it was two hours I will never forget. I was seated beside someone who personally knew one of the men who was there on the roof in Benghazi. This person was […]

Hillary’s Glasses the Clue to the Extent of Her Head Injury?

I have to admit, I didn’t believe the story of Hillary’s fall. Didn’t read much about it, I just thought she didn’t want to talk about Benghazi. A New York ophthalmologist told FoxNews.com that special glasses former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was seen wearing last year are used to treat double vision, which is sometimes caused by severe head trauma. Dr. Marc Werner explained the purpose of the Fresnel prism eyeglasses, like the ones Clinton wore, amid questions about the potential presidential candidate’s health. The subject was raised after Karl Rove commented on her time in and out of […]

Trey Gowdy: No Pursuit of Truth if Democrats Can Veto Subpoenas – Benghazi Survivors Taking Polygraphs Monthly?

This post is a mash-up of an interview yesterday on Fox News Sunday, and portions of previous statements made about Benghazi by Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC). Below are snippets of two video transcripts along with the videos. The Democrat talking points from Congressman Xavier Becerra (D-CA) would be funny if Democrats had not tried so baldly to keep evidence from the public. He even used the words “reckless and irresponsible” about the coming House Select Committee. More: “we participated in seven investigations,” “nothing new,” “want fair and balanced process,” “witch hunt,” “open and balanced process,” (and that, after Democrats shut […]

Hillary Clinton Showed Disdain for Guns in Benghazi & Promises to “Rein” in Founders – Gun Rights Too Lenient in US

National Journal quotes Hillary Clinton saying she “supports” the Second Amendment, but I don’t see that word in quotation marks. She is quoted saying “we’ve got to rein in” gun rights. Hillary’s past record matters. It is essentially the same policy she used in Benghazi. Marines were sanctioned to carry weapons, but she removed the Marines from the country. She said we had a “robust” security detail in Benghazi, a proven, intentional lie. She hired a non-sanctioned British security firm that no one believes was on site that night, and had they been, they could have used only flashlights and […]

Trey Gowdy Benghazi: Witnesses Had Courage to Come Forward – Systemic Effort to Intentionally Hide Records

Trey Gowdy talked with Greta tonight about his plans for the House Select Committee to investigate Benghazi. Video below and snippets of the transcript. GRETA: All right, you mentioned the classified documents. I’ve had a beef with Washington for however long I’ve been here. Seems like anytime anyone wants to hide anything, in any administration, Republican, Democrat, the trick is to classify it. Are you willing to go through the documents? Do you have the power to declassify any documents you think shouldn’t be kept from the american people. GOWDY: Speaker Boehner is going to give us any power we […]

Ted Cruz Report 4, List of 76 Lawless Obama Abuses of Power + Reports 1, 2 and 3

  Senator Ted Cruz has published the “The Legal Limit Report, No. 4,” documenting the Obama administration’s lawless abuses of power. Each is footnoted. See the footnotes and the actual report here.  Also below, see snippets of Reports 1, 2 and 3. All emphasis below is mine.   Governing by Executive Fiat 1. Disregarded 1996 welfare reform law in granting broad work waivers for work requirements of Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). 2. Implemented portions of the DREAM Act, which Congress rejected, by executive action. 3. Ended some terror asylum restrictions, by allowing asylum for people who provided only “insignificant” or “limited” […]

Benghazi: Strange String of Command – Buck McKeon Refutes Lovell’s “Insights” – Someone Has Something to Lose

What does the House Armed Services Committee have to gain or lose by believing (or not) the men in command on the night of September 11, 2012? There is no willingness in Congress to believe the word of those in charge, and it seems there were several, scatters across the globe. There was only one person in charge inside Libya the night of the attacks, and that was Gregory Hicks, Chief of Mission in the Tripoli U.S. Embassy.   AFRICOM Commander General Carter Ham was the commander but he was in Washington, D.C. Ham said he retained command because of […]

Ben Rhodes Email Recipients: Most Lead to White House – Even Michelle Obama’s Letter Opener Was Schooled

Maggie, our newest contributor is doing amazing work following the recent developments in the Benghazi scandal. Here is her latest article: ~~~~~~ Once again it is Judicial Watch we have to thank for revealing Benghazi information hidden from the public and even Congress. Even Michelle Obama’s “letter opener” was on the Susan Rice Prep email list. Ben Rhodes, Obama’s “Strategic Communications Director” did communicate, and he did strategically direct the spin on the attacks. See the list of other White House email recipients, numerous very close to Barack Obama along with their positions at that time, a couple connected to Hillary […]

Benghazi 9/11/12 @ 6:17 pm Susan Rice Given Tweet From Freelancer @JomanaCNN in Libya: Ansar al-Sharia Attacking Benghazi Compound

I’m wading my way through the new documents on Benghazi released by Judicial Watch and found an shocking tweet by CNN freelancer Jomana Karadsheh. The tweet was forwarded to Ambassador Susan Rice on September 11, 2012 at 6:17 p.m. U.S. time, which would be 1 a.m. or 2 a.m. in Benghazi on September 12, 2012. The screen grab from the .pdf shows that the tweet is time-stamped “27m” meaning it was grabbed for embed 27 minutes after it was tweeted. At that time, the body of Ambassador Stevens was still missing. The significance: Rice directly received a heads-up, whether she […]

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 […]

And Then There Was One …Debate That Is. What Will Obama’s Strategy Be?

The Romney campaign team are rightfully feeling good about their chances of winning now that the first two presidential debate and the VP debate are behind them.  The polls are very favorable. So, going into next Monday’s debate on foreign affairs, Romney would appear to be in the driver’s seat. All indications are that only a very serious misstep could stop Romney from a  victory on November 6, only three weeks away. Being a foreign affairs debate, and considering the fiasco of the events leading up to the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya (inadequate security) and the […]
