The town is turning on President Obama — and this is very bad news for this White House.
Republicans have waited five years for the moment to put the screws to Obama — and they have one-third of all congressional committees on the case now. Establishment Democrats, never big fans of this president to begin with, are starting to speak out. And reporters are tripping over themselves to condemn lies, bullying and shadiness in the Obama administration.
When you’re losing Politico, Mr Obama, you should start to seriously become concerned.
Deputy chief of mission for the U.S. in Libya Gregory Hicks testified Wednesday that he was told not to meet with a congressman sent to investigate the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi. Hicks said a State Department lawyer accompanied the delegation and attempted to be in every single meeting he was involved in.
Amazing testimony but — guess what? Whilst these vitally important hearings occurred on Wednesday, would it shock you to know that CNN was conspicuously absent? Instead, CNN was camped out on a minor crime scene in Cleveland.
Mr Hicks further testified regarding US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice and her talking points post-Benghazi:
Furthermore, Mr Hicks goes on to say the Benghazi scene was unsecured for 18 days:
If not bad enough, clear evidence indicated a poorly-produced video had nothing to do with the events of Benghazi:
Secret email reveals top official told Libya’s U.S. Ambassador that terrorists were behind Benghazi attack – four days BEFORE U.S. Ambassador to UN said it was a spontaneous attack
Sept. 11: Terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya
Sept. 12: State Dept. Assistant Secretary for Near Eastern Affairs tells Libya’s President that Ansar al-Sharia was responsible
Sept. 13: CIA writes candid talking points for members of Congress
Sept. 15: White House deputies edit the talking points, removing all references to Islamic terrorism
Sept. 16: UN Ambassador Susan Rice, in five television interviews, blames the attack on a spontaneous mob angered by an anti-Islam YouTube video
A top State Department appointee told Libya’s ambassador to the United States one day after the military-style assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that the terror group Ansar al-Shariah was responsible.
But four days later, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations said on television that it was the product of a spontaneous protest.
During a fiery and emotional congressional hearing on the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Rep. Trey Gowdy read aloud from an email dated Sept. 12, 2012 to senior State Department officers, from Elizabeth Jones, the acting Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs.
Describing a conversation she had with then-Libyan ambassador Ali Aujali, Jones wrote in the previously undisclosed email that ‘I told him that the group that conducted the attacks, Ansar al-Sharia, is affiliated with Islamic terrorists.’
‘Let me say that again,’ Gowdy emphasized during the hearing: ‘She told him.’
Which means the five different TV shows visited by Susan Rice that immediate Sunday following the Benghazi Murders were nothing more than FALSE “talking points” conjured up by the Demorat DC regime of Barack Hussein Obama in concert with Hillary Rodham Clinton.
And here’s another tidbit: there had been 230 attacks against US and allied installments in Libya and 48 of those in Benghazi in the year prior to the 9/11/12 attack. CIA developed intelligence which indicated there was a massive likelihood that a major terror event would be staged on 9/11/12.
The motivation for all the Benghazi lies is this base and venal: a presidential election hinged on and was based upon a fraud perpetrated by those who purposely lied about the events of Benghazi in order to keep Demorat presidential power in DC. No more, no less. The fragile election could brook no scandal. And the American Media Maggots, complicit, did and are doing their level best to quash Benghazi wholesale. Witness CNN.
The AMM could not have Mr Obama countered, as he had recently sworn to the American public that he had alQaeda “on the run.” And Hillary? As the Next Ordained One, she absolutely cannot have her star tarnished by such a rudimentary and stupid thing as a few petty Americans getting wiped out in some piss-ant country full of sand that would offend her ankles. Pah!
What does it say about our Secretary and State and our Secretary of Defense, who do not get back on the line to talk to the Number One remaining administrator in Benghazi following the attack? Were they otherwise occupied? Were there other murders occurring in consulates around the world which would divert their attention? Was American Idol on TV? Did they need to clean their office fish tanks? Buff their nails?
Let me make this abundantly clear for the possible PC amongst us: I couldn’t care less, not one molecule, about some women held captive in Ohio or some female convicted of killing her husband. The Benghazi Murders are infinitely more important in terms of the position of our country and our regime in DC. CNN has made its bed and made its continuous and current fellating of DC Demorats more than abundantly clear. Satisfying blow jobs that, obviously, shall not stop until an opposite regime is installed.
There are crimes here, ladies and gentlemen. Intimidating witnesses. Obstruction. Perhaps even the suborning of perjury.
According to a pair of recent polls, for the first time since the 9/11 terrorist hijackings, Americans are more fearful their government will abuse constitutional liberties than fail to keep its citizens safe.
A Fox News survey polling a random national sample of 619 registered voters the day after the bombing found despite the tragic event, those interviewed responded very differently than following 9/11.
For the first time since a similar question was asked in May 2001, more Americans answered “no” to the question, “Would you be willing to give up some of your personal freedom in order to reduce the threat of terrorism?”
A similar poll sampling 588 adults, conducted on April 17 and 18 for the Washington Post, also discovered the change in attitude.
“Which worries you more,” the Post asked, “that the government will not go far enough to investigate terrorism because of concerns about constitutional rights, or that it will go too far in compromising constitutional rights in order to investigate terrorism?”
The poll found 48 percent of respondents worry the government will go too far, compared to 41 percent who worry it won’t go far enough.
Perhaps there’s just a glimmer of hope left for the nation? I wish I could say I were convinced of the trend.
But, as with the Leftist doctrine of the American Media Maggots, this information and the existence of these polls remains predominantly uncovered.
For far too long the Main Stream Media has smugly assumed they had all print and broadcast news sewn up neatly in their Lefty pockets.
But for the past week rumors that the Koch brothers are taking a long look at buying the Tribune Company has spread like wild fire in a pine-beetle ravaged forest.
Media Matters Joe Strupp writes that the scary idea of the brothers buying Tribune is:
…sparking concerns from newspaper staff members that attempts to influence the editorial process in favor of their far-right political views may follow.
Among those concerned is Clarence Page, a top Chicago Tribune columnist, who said he would oppose a takeover of the paper by David and Charles Koch because of “the fact that they seem to be coming in upfront with the idea of using a major news media as a vehicle for their political voice.
Moderates or even — gulp — Rightists getting “control” of another media outlet?
House Republicans have concluded that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was responsible for cutting security at the consulate in Benghazi ahead of last year’s attack there, and that the administration lied about why it downplayed terrorism as the cause of the assault.
A new report — the result of months of investigation by five different House committees — says there was plenty of intelligence that presaged the attack, but the State Department and President Obama failed to heed the warnings or give the Defense Department the authority to respond to such an attack.
In the most damning finding, House Republicans said Mr. Obama and his team lied about the attacks afterward, first by blaming mob violence spawned by an anti-Muslim video, and then wrongly saying it had misled the public because it was trying to protect an FBI investigation.
“This progress report reveals a fundamental lack of understanding at the highest levels of the State Department as to the dangers presented in Benghazi, Libya, as well as a concerted attempt to insulate the Department of State from blame following the terrorist attacks,” the GOP investigation concluded in its 46-page report.
These are what I would call “facts in evidence.” And yet, what is the bottom line? It is this:
And yet Hillary Clinton shrieked back to her critics: “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. If it was because of a protest or if it was because guys out for a walk decided to go kill some Americans. What difference does it make?”
As I wrote here, Secretary Clinton, it makes all the difference in the world. You ignorant — I can’t even write a word, now, appropriately describing your venality, your decadence, your arrogance, your caustic dismissal of four American deaths.
Yet, despite this information being out for two days now, do you see the information splayed across the front pages of newspapers or on the various television channels?
The terror attack on a U.S. outpost in Libya was preceded by security cutbacks authorized at the “highest levels” of the State Department, and the Obama administration’s explanation in the immediate aftermath of the fatal assault was altered to protect the agency, House Republicans said in a report on the issue released Tuesday.
The 43-page report is the work of five House committees and concludes that decisions to scale back security at the Benghazi, Libya, outpost went all the way up to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Ladies and gentlemen, you can’t get any more clear or succinct than that. And yet, most American’s haven’t a clue that a damning finger is now officially indicating that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton LIED under oath.
And, further damning:
A Republican aide told Fox News that Rice’s script was “altered” to protect the State Department for the inadequate security.
A source told Fox News the leaders of the House committees on Armed Services, Foreign Affairs, Intelligence, Judiciary and Oversight have seen the emails about changing the talking points but are still trying to acquire them.
But the final point:
Clinton, testifying before Congress in the final weeks of her tenure, took responsibility for the department’s missteps and failures leading up to the assault. But she insisted that requests for more security at the diplomatic mission in Benghazi didn’t reach her desk, and reminded lawmakers that they have a responsibility to fund security-related budget requests.
A LIE. An out-and-out bald-faced LIE.
And guess what?
She will skate and Obaka will skate and the Demorats will skate. Because we no longer have a media willing to support the country in which in resides.
