Of Waivers and Waste. It’s the Economy, Stupid! (Open Thread)

© Miri WTPOTUS October 20, 2012

Here are two related stories. Both involve the waste of U.S. taxpayer money.  One story involves assisted waste; the other involves simple incompetence on the part of government.

First up is yet another case of the Obama administration ignoring laws that Barack Obama does not like:

The Obama administration is waiving a law that requires it to deny visas and entry to non-citizens who are “likely at any time to become” a government dependent – and is ignoring requests for information regarding this move, Sen. Jeff Sessions said today.

Sen. Sessions (R-AL), Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee, issued a statement after USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack missed the deadline to reply to oversight requests for data on expenditures for non-citizens on food stamps and information regarding the administration’s waiver of federal immigration law:

“Included in the oversight letter was a request for information about USDA’s contact with the Departments of State and Homeland Security regarding immigration law. Both DHS and DOS have effectively nullified the federal law that prohibits admission into the U.S. for those likely to become welfare reliant, further enabling USDA to surge non-citizen registration.”

“Such activities cannot be justified to the American people, which probably explains why the Administration has been unwilling to provide answers,” Sen. Sessions said.

According to section 212 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which defines “Classes of aliens ineligible for visas or admission”:

“Any alien who, in the opinion of the consular officer at the time of application for a visa, or in the opinion of the Attorney General at the time of application for admission or adjustment of status, is likely at any time to become a public charge is inadmissible.”

Sen. Sessions and three other senators had previously sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and State Department Secretary Hillary Clinton – which was also ignored - asking why the federal immigration law was not being followed.

Not only does Obama believe that he can “waive” laws that he’s sworn to uphold, he also apparently believes that he has no obligation to be transparent or responsive to the representatives of the people of the USA.

Thanks to Obama, our country has a $16 trillion debt; and Obama goes out of his way to admit immigrants who might become dependent upon welfare and food stamps!  But these immigrants, should they become citizens, are likely to vote for his party well into the future, so … the more the merrier!  Dependent people become dependable votes for the party that hands out the bucks.

That story comes on the heels of the news that Obama’s administration has held at least 30 meetings with Mexican officials in order to facilitate getting illegal aliens on food stamps here in the USA!

Our second featured story happens to involve food stamps, too, but not for immigrants or illegal aliens.  Nope!  For dead people:

The 2012 Waste Book, released earlier this week, documents $4.5 billion in waste in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps.

Among his findings, [Senator Tom] Coburn said that, “The USDA Inspector General found roughly 2,000 dead people are still receiving food stamps in New York and Massachusetts combined.”

“Additionally, its investigation revealed 7,236 people in these states are receiving duplicate benefits, while 286 are on state lists that should exclude them from receiving food stamps,” the report said, amounting to $1.4 million in unnecessary payments each month, or $147.03 for each recipient, dead or alive.

But the waste in SNAP does not end there, as Coburn found that individuals who smoke marijuana can receive added benefits.

“In three states,” Coburn writes, “some individuals received more food stamp benefits simply because they smoke marijuana.”

Under the section “More money for the marijuana munchies,” the Oklahoma Senator detailed how some states previously offered a deduction for pot smokers.

Welfare programs have exploded under Obama. He’s increased the food stamp rolls by 50% in just four years!  And who said Obama hasn’t accomplished anything?   He’s exploded the debt and the deficit!

Welfare now amounts to $1.03 trillion, which happens to just about match the yearly budget deficit under Obama–a deficit which has quadrupled on his watch.  (He’s watched it go up and up!)

Here’s a sobering statistic:  A recent survey shows that 4 in 10 US citizens have $500 or less in liquid assets (savings).  Under this president, unemployment has risen and remains stubbornly high, tens of millions are out of jobs, many millions more have seen the value of their homes and investments plummet, and those who do have jobs find their salaries stagnant and their dollars buying less and less.

While Obama runs around, appearing on “comedy” programs or inventing lame, snarky, adolescent, unseemly names to call his opponent (because that’s all he has going for him with his base–his juvenile demeanor), our country is going to hell in the proverbial hand basket.

“IT’S THE ECONOMY, STUPID!!!!!”

We need a new  president–an adult who knows how to effectively lead, how to root out waste in government, how to get rid of dead wood, how to work with people instead of against them, how to find common ground instead of dictating, how to stimulate the economy instead of deliberately depressing it, how to accept the limitations of his role as head of one of the three co-equal branches of our government.  Someone who respects the law and the Constitution.  Someone who will honor his oath of office. Someone who will put the safety and security of We the People of the United States of America first and foremost.  Someone who will preserve, protect, and defend the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

We need a new president.

  1. New open thread.

  2. Very informing article. Thanks! I am sure (future) President Mitt Romney will assign a task force in Congress to deal with this fraud and cut short payments that will immediately start dealing with our deficit.

    • TY. I hope so–that President Romney will tackle this waste and debt. Ryan will, that’s for sure! He can’t wait, I’ll bet.

      Despite what Michelle Obama thinks, obesity isn’t the greatest threat to our national security: It’s REALLY the debt that we owe to foreign nations, like CHINA. And our dependency on oil from foreign nations like Saudi Arabia, who are NOT our friends.

  3. Love your last paragraph…it explains all the most important points and the characteristics that most want and that we must require in our president. You can bet if the person in the White House was white, he wouldn’t have gotten away with the lawlessness that Obama has. I spit on all the cowards who were afraid to confront the usurper during the last four years.

    • Thanks. I spit on them, too. They’re going down in history. Count on that. When the truth comes out, and it will, their names will be MUD.

  4. How The IRS Wastes Billions Of Taxpayer Dollars Every Year
    Sep 01, 2012 Snips

    If you were to study wasteful federal government spending enough, you would eventually realize that the waste can be roughly classified into two broad categories: systemic/recurring waste and one time wasteful spending escapades. Systemic/recurring waste is the type of waste that occurs every minute of every day of every hour of every year that the Federal government operates. The magnitude of this type of waste is illustrated by the following follies:

    Nonpartisan sources reliably estimate that Medicare and Medicaid lose anywhere from $110 to $150 billion a year due to incompetence, inefficiencies, and outright criminal fraud.
    Social Security likely loses about $100 billion a year due to incompetence, inefficiencies, and outright criminal fraud.
    One Federal unemployment insurance benefits program loses about $19 billion a year to incompetence, inefficiencies, and outright criminal fraud.
    Federal food stamp programs probably lose about $7 billion a year to incompetence, inefficiencies, and outright criminal fraud.
    The IRS has admitted that it fails to collect upwards of $380 billion a year from taxpayers who are legally required to pay that money in taxes.

    Just in these few programs we see that the Federal government misuses and abuses over $600 billion every year of taxpayer wealth.

    The U.S. Navy built two ships almost to completion at a cost of $300 million and then decided they were not needed. At that point, they spent another $10 million to turn the unused ships into scrap metal.

    The U.S. State Department spent $80 million to build a consulate in a northern Afghanistan city. Only after completion did they realize it would be a perfect target for a Taliban terrorist attack, requiring them to abandon the now completed construction.
    ~

    CNBC recently reported that thieves are fraudulently extracting billions of dollars from the IRS tax collection processes every year. The details of the fraud were laid out in the CNBC article by the IRS inspector general and include the following atrocities: In the report, the inspector general found that tax thieves are stealing the identities of taxpayers, then filing bogus returns on their behalf, and collecting fraudulent refunds as a result.

    • I remember reading and then writing about all the illegal aliens who file tax returns and collect tax credits on children who live back in Mexico! Iirc, one of them was found to report nieces and nephews as dependents, as many as 20 of them, and he got child tax credits for every one of them! Thousands of dollars–more than most people make in a year. It’s outrageous. Any one of us, any one, turned loose to “audit” the federal government could find and get rid of millions of dollars (maybe billions) in waste every danged year. I pray that not only will we get a new president but we’ll also have a vice president who WILL go after all this waste and help put our country back in the black.

      Last night, as I (as usual) lay awake with insomnia, I thought about that debt clock that I linked in the post. I remembered seeing how much every U.S. citizen “owes” on this debt–every woman, man, child in the USA. It’s over $51,000 per person. Yet I remembered that almost HALF the population doesn’t pay taxes and millions upon millions are dependent upon welfare, so I wondered how much each PRODUCTIVE, CONTRIBUTING citizen owes on the debt, since those are the ones who WILL have to pay China and the others back. Well, I looked at that clock again today and guess what? They thought of that, too! Each U.S. TAXPAYER “owes” over $141,000!!!! Can you pay your “fair share?” Check it out: http://www.usdebtclock.org/

      When Obama brings up that 47% again, Romney should throw THAT statistic in his face. The 53% who ACTUALLY PAY TAXES will have to EACH pay $141,000 in order to put our country back on track to prosperity. IS THAT FAIR? HARDLY. Many of the 47% will agree that it’s not fair, but a good proportion of them will believe it is fair. Among those will be Barack Obama and his wife.

      • I just also noticed that they have state debt clocks. What would be interesting is to compare the state debts per individual citizen to the party of the governor and the legislature. Check out your own state and see how you’re doing.

        • My gosh, I just found that I have assets of $277,830 – well, it isn’t just me, it is all of us according to the total national assets on the debt clock. Unfortunately, the total debt per person nationally is or was when I looked at the debt clock was $186,188 per person. My TX debt was $9,442. So according to the debt clock, I am worth $82,200. not including my own private property. (assets minus liabilities). Oh I am far better off knowing that I have national assets. I wonder what parcels or property that is and where it is located. I guess I have been paying on it and didn’t know it! The amount went up $45,188 from your number Miri in just about an hour and a half! From $141,000 to $186,188! This is not a good sign, I am wealthy today and will be in the red by tomorrow!

  5. Obama and Biden: Time to indict both!
    Exclusive: Larry Klayman presents allegations to go before Citizens’ Grand Jury

    Oc t. 19 Snip

    Enough talk. Its time to act. For the “Muslim in chief,” President Barack Hussein Obama, and his equally criminally minded vice president, Joe Biden, the jig is up. As set forth in an excerpted version of an indictment I intend to present to a Citizens’ Grand Jury in Ocala, Fla., Oct. 29-31, 2012, both men will be held to account for the treasonous crimes they have perpetrated against the United States – endangering our national security and resulting in the deaths of brave Americans.

  6. This is what the Left hears from Matthews! Apparently that is why the media has covered up for Obama for 4 years! They can’t challenge Obama, but they sure challenged President Bush, didn’t they?

    MSNBC’s Matthews claims it’s unconstitutional for Romney to challenge Obama
    By Bradley Blakeman
    October 19, 2012 Snip

    “I don’t think he [Romney] understands the Constitution of the United States…He’s the president of the United States. You don’t say, ‘you’ll get your chance.” Chris Matthews was angry with Romney challenging the president on his record during the course of an election to unseat him.

    Imagine that.

    Matthews should be angry about the president’s poor performance not with Romney’s tenaciousness in seeking the truth.

    But here’s the truth, that Matthews hasn’t seemed to have learned: the respect you give is the respect you get. If the president wants respect than he better stop acting like a potentate and more like a president of the United States. Romney gave the president the respect he deserved at the debates and during the course of the election.

    You would think Matthews would know what is in the Constitution and what is not.[Matthews follows Alinsky's Rules for Radicals - that is their adopted substitution for the U.S. Constitution.]

    Nowhere in the Constitution does it set forth that a president of the United States is above the people and cannot and should not be challenged. Is that not what a presidential election is all about – challenging an incumbent president on his record?
    The Founding Fathers specifically limited the powers of the president and did not exempt a president from abiding by the laws of the land in the same manner and to the same extent as the average citizen. [Obama has skirted the law for so long he thinks he is untouchable - and the media was complicit along with Congress in allowing Obama to believe it.]

    http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/10/19/msnbc-matthews-claims-it-unconstitutional-for-romney-to-challenge-obama/

    • Does he really believe it’s in the Constitution that you can’t tell the potus to sit down and shut up? I would do it in a NY minute. That guy is no better than any other person anywhere in this world, although he thinks he is.

    • If only people could send in their votes for news anchors/tv journalist; wouldn’t that be nice. Matthews, people like Rachel Madoux(sp), whose sarcastic dialogue turns me off so bad. Matthews maybe could find a new job as a grocery bag boy , no ,guess he wouldn’t even be good at that job, too annoying. If we could vote, they’d be gone for sure though.

      • We vote by not watching them and watching their advertisers disappear. It would be great to set rid of the worst ones, but apparently their numbers on the network keep them in place.

        • We the People really and truly need to start using that power to pressure the networks to at least TRY to be fair and balanced. We need to write to the sponsors of the most egregious violators of fair news coverage and voice our intent to boycott their product until they either stop advertising on biased news outlets or pressure the station to be more fair. Look what happened with Chick-fil-A. It was great to see the power of the people.

  7. This hurts. She is such a draw for the Left. LOL. She was such a media darling for her 15 minutes of fame when she wanted us to pay for her birth control pills. Her national reputation of sleeping with every Tom, Dick, Harry and Susie will follow her for years to come. Stupid Leftist woman. Rush was right when he labeled her. She is a prime example of a woman who lacks morals and self esteem. Perhaps her real problem is that she is a sex addict.

    Sandra Fluke Campaigns For Obama, Draws Crowd Of 10 People
    Oct. 21

    Sandra Fluke spoke Saturday in front of about 10 people at the Sak ‘N Save in north Reno. Her speech was part of an attempt by Democrats to get Nevadans to the polls for early voting.

    http://nation.foxnews.com/sandra-fluke/2012/10/21/sandra-fluke-campaigns-obama-draws-crowd-10-people

    • Hasn’t it already been reported that she’s gay? Which makes her crusade for FREE birth control especially ironic.

      You’d think more than 10 people would show up just to razz her. I would, given a chance. The snarks just write themselves: “Fluke, we don’t give a f***.”

    • Maybe if Sandra had set up with Condoms and BCPills gift baskets, she’d have gotten a little more attention. It’s Halloween, that might have worked….Tricks and Treats for a swell voter drive.

  8. H/T Western Journalism

    Top 5 Reasons

  9. Who would be able to arrange this kidnapping…Huma perhaps? Did Hillary help with this and is covering for Huma who has inside information and can pass it along to her relatives who are in the Muslim Brotherhood? A whistleblower in the WH leaked the connection?

    Muslim Brotherhood Behind Benghazi Attack With Link To Obama
    Oct. 20 Snip

    On September 10, 2012, the amateurish, anti-Muslim YouTube video “Innocence of Muslims” had been on the Internet for three months with exactly seventeen views. [Astounding - a whole 17 people saw it - probably the actors in the video! Yet, how would the WH know about the video in the first place?]

    Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, UN Ambassador Susan Rice, and an army of Obama surrogates conducted a media blitz blaming this obscure video no one had seen for the entire Middle East exploding on 9/11, including a “protest turned violent” at the Libyan consulate that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. We later learned that there was no protest. We later learned that intelligence on the ground linked it to a terrorist group within twenty-four hours.

    We later learned that the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi, was behind the attack. [When did we know this? The video says it was a WH source.]

    We now know it was not initially an attack, but an attempted kidnapping of Ambassador Stevens to use him as a pawn to get their beloved Blind Sheik back.

    What is most shocking, however, is that a source within the White House states that it was arranged as an October surprise by Barack Obama.

    http://www.westernjournalism.com/muslim-brotherhood-behind-benghazi-attack-with-link-to-obama/

    This is where I read the theory of the Blind Sheik connection attributed to Kevin Dujan, Hill Buzz, October 17, 2012, and then Western Journalism got a real source.
    http://www.westernjournalism.com/benghazi-attack-was-botched-kidnapping-to-trade-blind-sheik/

    Although I thought the Sheik was a relevant connection when I first wrote about it in my article on September 13th.

      Muslim Brotherhood Behind Benghazi Attack With Link To Obama
      Published on Oct 19, 2012 by WCJournalism

      • I forgot that it was Peter King who said that they were talking to the MB in order to negotiate the release of that terrorist American-murdering thug. Remember the reports that a Libyan politician with ties to Al Qaeda told the Libyan guards to “stand down” AND that the families of the guards themselves KNEW of and worried about the impending attack on the consulate? WCJ says that a “source” in the WH talked about how it was to be an October surprise AND they say they obtained a video in which it’s reported that Morsi was behind the attack. They show a female reporter speaking a foreign language, so I assume that’s the report in question. The only word I understood was Morsi.

      • http://www.westernjournalism.com/october-surprise-gone-horribly-wrong/ That’s the original story where they say a source high up in the WH told this story to someone the writer knows. Apparently, it wasn’t planned to trade the Sheikh for Stevens, but there was going to be a big splashy military intervention to save Stevens, with Barry taking credit. They say that, of course, the Muslim Brotherhood want Barry reelected. They should have stated it this way: They want Barry reelected because they want to keep Huma Weiner in her position of power in the administration. Just because Hillary is leaving, allegedly, it doesn’t mean that Huma won’t get a promotion and another cushy, powerful job in OUR government. They say they’re “grooming” her, just like they groomed Barry.

    • I hope they have screen shots to prove it true that only 17 people had viewed that video as of Sept. 10. It certainly is a plausible theory that Morsi had something to do with this, if it was a plan-gone-awry, because simultaneously we had news that they WANTED the Blind Sheikh back AND that the protest in Egypt involved pressure to get Morsi to get him back. And then, as you say, Huma Weiner’s connection to the State Dept. There was a ton of bogus outrage emanating from the WH upon people reporting that they were CONSIDERING sending the Sheikh to Egypt as some kind of show of friendship to the new regime there. Weren’t there multiple anonymous sources squealing about that? It sounds so very true. Wasn’t it even BEFORE the protest in Egypt or at least before they stormed the embassy there that the embassy put out that apology for the video, when nobody was even talking about any video? I totally believe that he would run a scam like this in order to make giving that Sheikh back more “palatable”. Since Stevens was gay, too, he would be sure to have the gay activists screaming for the trade.

      • The whole video thing is what makes one believe how obvious this had to have been a planned lie. So out of the seventeen people that saw that video, we could count how many muslims saw it. give yurself a ratio, pick any number….so maybe one or two FOREIGNERs. I figure the rest that saw it was the Whitehouse boogey men and women…..So Hillary, O., Vallery, Huma, let’s see who else. And this thing had been out a while. It’s so despicable too., yeah and Obama said it was made by some very shady character…so just how much time did it take to decide he was so shady Mr. Obama ? What made him a shady character? Hillary and Obama should be taken out of the whitehouse in hand cuffs and a muzzle as they have just ruined this dudes life ( if the guy even really exists). Has anyone heard if he’s still being held? That would be interesting to discuss in the debate next week>

        • Good point! He knew the videographer was “shady” but he couldn’t tell a terrorist attack from a demonstration.

          Fox News reported the other day that they are morphing the story again. They have the “intelligence community” trying to split the difference and it’s obvious that the orders came down from above to rewrite their stories until they get it “right” (which would be according to Valerie Jarrett, would be my guess). http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/10/19/changing-intelligence-on-libya-attack-turns-focus-back-to-anti-islam-film/

          “The intelligence community on Friday once again modified its assessment of what caused the deadly terror attack last month on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya – returning in part to claims that the violence was in reaction to a protest at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo over an anti-Islam film.

          At the same time, the latest assessment acknowledged there was no actual protest in Benghazi at the time of the attack and that “extremist” elements were likely involved.

          The information, provided to Fox News by a U.S. intelligence official, is subject to change but could end up providing fodder to both sides in what has become a politically charged fight in Washington and on the presidential campaign trail. Lawmakers have slammed the administration for pointing almost exclusively to the film as the reason for the Sept. 11 strike in the days afterward.

          The latest assessment appears to fall somewhere between the flawed account U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice gave on Sept. 16 claiming the attack was “spontaneous” and a subsequent revision on Sept. 28 by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper claiming it was a coordinated terror attack.

          Virtually everyone in the administration now describes the attack as terrorism.

          But the U.S. intelligence official said there does not appear to be a whole lot of planning involved, despite the fact the attack occurred on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

          No one is ruling out the idea that some of the attackers may have aspired to attack the U.S. in Benghazi. However, right now, there isn’t any intelligence that the attackers pre-planned their assault days or weeks in advance,” the official said. “The bulk of available information supports the early assessment that the attackers launched their assault opportunistically after they learned about the violence at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo. Of course, other factors may also have motivated participation in the attack.” [Yeah. Like it being the 11th anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Flight 93?]

          Despite the re-emerging claim that the attack occurred with little planning, militants made several attacks on U.S. and Western targets — including the consulate itself — in the months leading up to the Sept. 11 strike. Sources also previously told Fox News that last month’s strike may have been part of a deliberate effort to drive the U.S. out of eastern Libya.

          Some lawmakers have described as ludicrous the idea that the anti-Islam film prompted a sustained overnight assault that involved mortars and rocket fire. … The intelligence official who spoke to Fox News on condition of anonymity walked a fine line in trying to give an updated picture of what happened. The official acknowledged that, despite initial comments, “there probably wasn’t a protest around the time of the attack.”

          The official said: “It was clear from the outset that a group of people gathered that evening. [The video said otherwise!] A key question early on was whether extremists took over a crowd or if the guys who showed up were all militants. It took time—until that next week—to sort through varied and sometimes conflicting accounts to understand the group’s overall composition.””

          Look how ridiculous that sounds. “Yeah, that’s the ticket!” That story came out on the 19th. Then there was this on the 20th:

          http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/wh-tries-write-al-qaeda-out-libya-story_655130.html?page=1

          “The Obama administration appears to be mounting yet another version of its campaign to push back on claims that it misled on the intelligence related to the attacks in Benghazi on 9/11/12. But the new offensive by the administration, which contradicts many of its earlier claims and simply disregards intelligence that complicates its case, is raising fresh questions in the intelligence community and on Capitol Hill about the manipulation of intelligence for political purposes.

          The “spontaneous” talking point came from an intercepted telephone call between jihadists, in which one of the attackers notes that his group had attacked after seeing the demonstrations in Cairo. U.S. officials familiar with the intelligence on Benghazi tell THE WEEKLY STANDARD there are two schools of thought on what that means. The first view is reflected in the administration’s “spontaneous” line. It holds that jihadists in Benghazi saw the demonstration in Egypt and decided, almost on a whim, to assault the compound. But the nature of the attack—the weapons, the sequencing, the coordination—suggests more planning. The attackers flushed Americans from the compound toward an “annex” two kilometers away. As the Americans fled, they encountered (and avoided) an attempted ambush on the route.

          The second view is that the demonstrations in Cairo, which followed the release of a video from al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri on September 10, were seen as something of a “go signal.” As we first reported on September 12, the film, in this view, was merely the pretext for an al Qaeda “information operation,” and the Zawahiri video, which called directly for renewed jihad and for al Qaeda sympathizers to avenge the death of Abu Yaya al Libi, was intended to trigger protests and assaults throughout the region. Many of those with prominent roles in the protests and assaults—in Egypt, Tunisia, and perhaps Libya—had strong ties to al Qaeda leadership in Pakistan.” [So there WAS a video involved, but it wasn't the anti-Islam one, it was the one released by AL QAEDA as a "GO SIGNAL". Now that rings true.]

          So the point is that they’re going to MAKE the intelligence community say what Barry and Rice said earlier that they had said, when they hadn’t said it yet. Once again, rewriting history on the fly. Citizen Wells must love this one. Orwellian. Ministry of Truth rewriting history again.

          http://hotair.com/archives/2012/10/20/obama-admin-recalibrating-benghazi-narrative-again-before-fp-debate/ That story runs down the ever-changing tales and the motivations behind them. It makes Barry look SO FREAKING CHILDISH. It’s RIDICULOUS. I cannot believe that this is what passes for the leader of the free world. It’s embarrassing. And the LA Times and the Washington Post bend over backwards to carry the water for him.

          According to the Weekly Standard, the LA Times wrote, “The assault on the US diplomatic mission in Benghazi last month appears to have been an opportunistic attack rather than a long-planned operation and intelligence agencies have found no evidence that it was ordered by al Qaeda, according to US officials and witnesses interviewed in Libya.”

          Opportunistic is the new word for “spontaneous” as in what Susan Rice claimed five times on TV, FALSELY. Who believes it was spontaneous (or opportunistic) and they just happened to have RPGs and trucks with heavy weapons mounted on them and also MORTARS? You really have to read that whole story at the Weekly Standard to TRY to understand this confusion. I do think they’re deliberately confusing the story, as liars tend to do, just to make it that much harder to pin down who said what and when. It’s like with Barry’s ever-morphing biography. You cannot keep the stories straight.

          From the Hot Air story:

          “The chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security late Friday demanded President Barack Obama release the intelligence reports behind the administration’s evolving explanation for the burning of the Benghazi consulate.

          In a letter, Peter King (R-N.Y) echoed fellow House Republicans’ calls in demanding the release of intelligence that led the administration to initially conclude protests over an inflammatory Internet film led to the attack, and “subsequent Intelligence Community analyses which led your Administration to determine that the events of September 11, 2012 represented a terrorist attack.” …

          In a letter to President Barack Obama sent earlier Friday, Reps. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) called for a “full and immediate account” of the administration’s decisions leading up to and in the wake of the attack. …”

          If they get anything, I’m sure they’ll have to wait WHILE THEY MAKE THE DOCUMENTS UP OUT OF WHOLE CLOTH. Read this story from the New York Post and you’ll see how ridiculous this is that they expect us to believe it was a protest that turned into a “opportunistic” terror attack:
          http://www.nypost.com/p/news/international/us_watched_as_terror_raged_AypAEEA9OK23rPf7Z5BHWO

          The United States had an unmanned Predator drone over its consulate in Benghazi during the attack that slaughtered four Americans — which should have led to a quicker military response, it was revealed yesterday.

          “They stood, and they watched, and our people died,” former CIA commander Gary Berntsen told CBS News.

          The network reported that the drone and other reconnaissance aircraft observed the final hours of the hours-long siege on Sept. 11 — obtaining information that should have spurred swift action.

          But as Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three colleagues were killed by terrorists armed with AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenade launchers, Defense Department officials were too slow to send in the troops, Berntsen said.

          They made zero adjustments in this. You find a way to make this happen,” he fumed.

          “There isn’t a plan for every single engagement. Sometimes you have to be able to make adjustments.” … Fighter jets and Specter AC-130 gunships — which could have been used to help disperse the bloodthirsty mob — were also stationed at three nearby bases, sources told the network.”

          Panetta decided not to use the resources at hand. Why? So they’re desperately trying to avoid the fact that Al Qaeda was involved. They’re also apparently avoiding talking about Stevens being there in Libya to help arm AL QAEDA to fight in Syria against Assad. Certainly one reason they’re changing the stories is so that in the debate tomorrow night, it will be harder for Romney to contradict Barry because NOBODY KNOWS WHAT THE HELL THE TRUTH IS BUT WE CAN SURE SUSPECT WHAT IT IS NOT.

  10. Since when does the UN tell Americans what to do? As if we would listen to an organization lead by tyrants and tip pot dictators. Oh my, that is scary that Romney might allow waterboarding. The ones that should be scared are the terrorists that are caught. For anyone else, no big whoop – except for the leftists who deem it torture. The UN doesn’t admire republics or democracy, and their human rights record is abominable.

    UN Warns Americans: Do Not Elect Mitt Romney
    Oct. 21, 2012 Snip

    The United Nations Special Rapporteur on Counter-Terrorism and Human Rights has warned Americans not to elect Republican Mitt Romney in next month’s presidential election, saying that doing so would be “a democratic mandate for torture.” The UN’s Ben Emmerson was referring to Romney’s refusal to rule out the use of waterboarding in interrogating terror detainees, a practice that President Barack Obama has ended.

    Colin Perkel of The Canadian Press reported Emmerson’s remarks from a symposium in Toronto on the impact of 9/11 on human rights: “The re-introduction of torture under a Romney administration would significantly increase the threat levels to (Americans) at home and abroad,” Emmerson said. “Such a policy, if adopted, would expose the American people to risks the Obama administration is not currently exposing them to.” [Obama exposes us to more than water boarding, Fool.]

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/10/21/UN-Warns-Americans-Do-Not-Elect-Mitt-Romney

    • s the UN tells us who not to vote for and then they’re going to man the polls to see to it! Nice…greatly appreciated…Where’s those Black Panthers when yu really need em.

    • For this ALONE, we should kick the UN out of our country. Where do they get off INTERFERING IN OUR ELECTIONS? Isn’t THAT against the UN Charter? I would BET that it is. DEFUND THEM AND KICK THEIR SORRY COMMUNIST ASSES OUT OF OUR COUNTRY NOW.

      Romney needs to run this as a campaign ad. Does he have a CLUE how much We the People despise the UN?

      Would Emmerson care to elaborate on what “risks” Romney would “expose the American people to” that Obama is saving us from? Mr. Emmerson is exposing himself to a risk–losing his right to come back into our country. SEND HIM BACK TO THE UK where he belongs. They may not want him, but he’s one of theirs so they can have him back. http://www.guardian.co.uk/law/butterworth-and-bowcott-on-law/2011/jun/20/ben-emmerson-un-rapporteur-terrorism

      Are the “risks” this “barrister” from the Matrix Chambers, a “progressive” group of barristers, speaks of are that he will try to sue us all in international court? Well, how about this? Any peep out of this dude about prosecuting anybody over Barry’s drone war? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2220828/US-drone-attacks-CIA-chiefs-face-arrest-horrific-evidence-bloody-video-game-sorties.html (Wait! I see he mentions the drones at the end of the story.)

      Here’s his “concern”: “The re-introduction of torture under a Romney administration would significantly increase the threat levels to (Americans) at home and abroad,” Emmerson said.”

      So, in his world, if we stand up to terror then any terror that comes back is OUR FAULT. We asked for it by NOT capitulating to the demands of an insane clown posse of Muslim jihadists? Oh, yeah. As Farrakhan reminded us in his recent rant: The U.S. MUST “SUBMIT” or else. Islam does NOT mean “peace”. It means “SUBMISSION”. Peace through submission to Islam. Resistance is futile or else they will make sure you have NO PEACE. In other words, submit or they will terrorize you until you do. And in Emmerson’s world, if you fight back or resist terrorism, then YOU are to blame for what happens to you.

      I wonder what Emmerson has to say about the mandates Muslim governments have for mutilating “lady parts” or for honor killings or for stoning people “taken in adultery” or for blowing people up or for beheading people or for burning Christians alive in their churches or for persuading children to commit suicidal terrorist attacks?

    • It is important to get out to all teaparty groups, etc., to loudly cry intimidation when they see the UN Patrol at their polling center. Call 911, Call the News, Call Republican Officials to come to your side and stay by your side as you vote. Say you are intimidated, too afraid to go inside and vote. This also should be done if Black Pampers are there. Do NOT vote until the intimidation is removed. Imagine the group outside the polls waiting for a SAFE, Intimidation-free zone to vote? If every Republican and many Dems will to (especially if we start a news blitz of conservatives being the ones that called in the UN), it will backfire. Somehow the word must get out. “Voters are too intimidated to vote!”

      Now, I am not saying voters will actually be intimidated, just that it must be called out as intimidation. Or called out as something worse.

      I am not worried about conservatives being intimidated. The point is not to let it happen; the UN being there at all. The point is to take action. The point is to acknowledge it and not go along with it by going in and voting while they are there watching us. The point is to speak through action. To quietly, as more than half the voters, go in and vote when foreigners are patrolling our elections? That is to abdicate to them. This is the most disturbing thing in all the shitski that has come down at us the last few years. And people that are bothered by it will just say, “I am not intimidated. No one is going to intimidate me not to vote.” Great. Then we all walk in and vote and have accepted, placed ourselves, our election under the World governing body. No. More. America. Good luck trying to get it back.

      Read the wording very carefully. “The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE), a United Nations partner on DEMOCRATIZATION and human rights projects, will deploy 44 observers from its human rights office around the country on Election Day to monitor an array of activities, including potential disputes at polling places. It’s part of a broader observation mission that will send out an additional 80 to 90 members of parliament from nearly 30 countries.”

      Democratization is for countries in the midst of usurpation. No longer does the rule of law pertain during democratization. Instead a controlling elite, masking as the majority are ‘democratic’ in voting out the established government of the land. Democratic equates to majority rule. Once democracy (real or contrived majority vote) votes out/abolishes a government the new government begins and democracy ceases and can only go two ways….an enslaving government as in socialism and communism or a individual freedom government as in a republic.

      THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, THE REPUBLIC OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA DOES NOT NEED — DOES. NOT. NEED. — DOES NOT NEED D.E.M.O.C.R.A.T.I.Z.A.T.I.O.N!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • This is part of a conversation going on at gcf4 which started above this link and continues with it. Does anyone have any idea what I am trying to say? My core is totally revolting instinctively but do not, it appears, have the articulation to convey why……

        • What you said is totally understandable Hoot. Has the Republican party been notified and if so, what are they saying to you on how to handle the situation at the polls? I know you are involved and if they are providing training, this information should be part of the training nationwide.

          • Oh, Bridgette, I never thought to bring this up at the training. As of now it looks like the GOP is

          • This article does not say whether the GOP has been notified, however, “The request for foreign monitoring of election sites drew a strong rebuke from Catherine Engelbrecht, founder and president of True the Vote, a conservative-leaning group seeking to crack down on election fraud. ”

            More surprising is to find out we have had our heads in the sand about this and the Republican Party never did anything about this in years past, ” In a follow-up e-mail, Maiola noted that it is a limited election-observation mission. She said “the OSCE has regularly been invited to observe elections in the United States, in line with OSCE commitments.”

            Access of international observers during voting is explicitly allowed in some states such as Missouri, South Dakota, North Dakota and New Mexico.

            “State law does not generally provide for international observers,” Maiola said. “However, through our contacts at state and county level in certain states, we managed to secure invitations at local level and we have taken up the offer to observe. Where this is not possible, we will respect the state regulation on this matter and will not observe in precincts on Election Day.”

            Notice the last phrase is the quote, “….and will not observe IN precints on Eleciton Day.” How does that open the door up to monitoring, assessing the PROCESS of the evote which is now trying to connected to the Romney family as having a financial interest in the company/ies? http://www.freepress.org/departments/display/19/2012/4748

            • I’d rather have an American company counting votes than a foreign one. I wonder how many union pension funds have investments in those companies, too? Soros? Wow. I wonder what connections HE might have to voting machines. Hugo Chavez? Who, along with Putin and Castro, endorse Barry for potus?

          • Google “wasserman romney family tied to vote”. This article by Harvey WASSERMAN is all over the Left Blogs.

          • Forgot this..UN practically endorses Obama. Slams Romney! For starters, http://moonbattery.com/

          • Now it’s our turn to cry, “WACKJOB CONSPIRACY THEORISTS!!!!”

      • Excellent idea Hoot! People, please send the information to your tea party groups so they can make the announcement. Plaster this information on other blogs so the word gets out quickly.

        It is intimidation and the UN was called by the a member of the Progressive Black Caucus.

        • Bridgette, all my responses to you are above. I replied from the little icon box for messages up in wp toolbar and they went under myself.

      • Speaking of the Tea Party, what’s up with Scarborough? http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1012/82677.html

        “Sometimes, mainstream publications and Democratic leaders even go so far as to say kind things about Ronald Reagan as a way to attack the Tea Party. They speak glowingly of Reagan and contrast him with the barbarians who now run the Republican Party. This, of course, conveniently overlooks the nasty attacks Reagan once endured at the hands of those who now cynically praise the 40th president.

        But let’s not get bogged down by history. Instead, we can blow apart this fanciful meme by reviewing the Tea Party’s short history. Let’s simply review how terrible the Tea Party has been for the GOP.

        — They energized a conservative movement battered by eight years of bloated Republicanism,

        — they shocked the political world by taking Ted Kennedy’s seat,

        — they put Obama Democrats in a constant defensive crouch,

        — they led the resistance against Obamacare,

        — they helped bring about the largest legislative landslide in U.S. history in 2010,

        — they grabbed six seats in the U.S. Senate that year,

        — they helped elect six governors,

        — they helped win 700 seats in state legislatures, and

        — helped elect a Republican majority that included the largest number of Republicans elected since 1946.

        With a track record like that, the Republican Party had better watch their backs. If this trend keeps up, they may just win the White House and the Senate.”

    Media Elite Knock Obama for ‘Snarky, Belittling’ Campaign
    Oct. 21 Snip

    While Romney focuses his closing argument on the future, his agenda, and the realities of governing, our president is literally going all in on Big Bird, contraception, Binder-gate, “Romnesia,” and aids flanking him at rallies holding signs that read: “Women’s Health Security.”

    But the real problem is that Obama’s run out of nonsense to hurl. That’s why he’s left with “Romnesia” and binders. Certainly, the corrupt media’s been happy to go along with any nonsense Obama offers them, but guys like Halperin aren’t stupid. They know this silliness only serves to diminish the president and won’t move a single vote. Moreover, they know it likely means that the campaign is panicking over internal polling that shows it all going the wrong way.

    I’m not predicting a Romney victory, but with the polls as erratic as they are, one way to gauge where things are is by looking at the behavior of the candidates.

    Winners look like winners.

    Losers look like losers.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/10/20/Media-Elite-Fret-Over-Obamas-Small-Campaign

    • Even that “Romnesia” stuff was PLAGIARIZED. It was coined by that group of Mormon feminists that even Gateway Pundit now suspects is what Gloria Allred’s “surprise” was planned to be. But I wonder, now that Romnesia isn’t playing so well, even with the complicit lamestream media, if they’ve decided to throw that one under the bus? Time will tell. It sure smacks of desperation to have that sob sister skank trying to throw Barry a lifeline. Women are NOT stupid, no matter what Barry and Gloria think. Why would she meet with him in early October and suddenly he dredges up this word “Romnesia” and orders all the media to hype it, if that’s not what they were/are planning? This will work about as well as the “story” about Romney cutting some kids bangs in a high school prank. DESPERATION.

  12. The nuts that comprise the Left! Some of them are humorous and others vile. They should get those passports to get out of the country now. They won’t be missed. Guess they are already predicting and feeling the loss that is coming for the anti-Americans! Illiterates. CNN is helping spread the fear of riots. The blacks will riot in their own neighborhoods with no regard to the property of others or the consequences. The jails are waiting and open. What do they think they will accomplish? They are as pathetic as the OWS crowds.

    50 Crazy Things That Obama Supporters Are Threatening To Do If Romney Wins

    Oct 19, 2012

    CNN is running articles about how polarized politics in America has become and how vicious both sides can be. There is a lot of anger and frustration out there that has been bottled up for a long time, and this election could end up being a trigger event that releases a lot of it. Both sides are entirely convinced that they can win this tightly contested election, and one side is going to feel bitterly disappointed when it does not happen. Both sides are talking as if it is going to be “the end of America” or “the end of the world” if they lose this election. Is the secret service investigating all of the threats or is the Left immune from those visits?

    • Both sides? Right. We’re familiar with that meme–they told us all about the white-haired “domestic terrorists” known as the Tea Partiers. Number 8 is my favorite. It means likely no chance that moron will ever procreate.

      On the CNN story they linked to, I love the photo of how “vicious” the right can be: Equating Obama to Marx, Trotsky and Lenin in a poster. Well, it’s TRUE. He was a member of the COMMUNIST PARTY, after all, but of course perhaps CNN doesn’t KNOW THAT because they didn’t bother to VET Obama, even after four years.

      So telling the truth on a poster is the equivalent of threatening Romney’s life? Another sample of conservative hate: Rush Limbaugh saying Sandra Fluke sounds like a slut. Well, if the shoe fits.

      What else can one conclude when she claims to need a thousand dollars a month from taxpayers to pay for her contraceptives (which she shouldn’t need on account of her orientation)?

      Another sample: Glenn Beck calling Barry a racist. HE IS A RACIST. Against whites. Three examples: New Black Panthers get off, Trayvon Martin could be his son, Professor Gates and the beer summit. There’s more but why bother to repeat myself?

      Conservatives are speaking the truth, but the lefties (or whatever those anti-Romney-imbeciles are) are threatening Romney’s life. No equivalence.

      In over four years, I’ve not read one comment where anyone suggests the same about Barry. NEVER. Defeat him at the polls. IMPEACH HIM. TRY to get a court to rule him ineligible (because he is), but nobody’s threatened him. Look at that craziness on Twitter. If the Secret Service, the DOJ, and the FBI aren’t investigating each and every one of those people who threaten Romney, then Congress should impeach Barry NOW because his administration is out of control. The thing about that CNN article is that they don’t mention the death threats rampant on the Internet against Romney. Gee, I wonder why? I’ve seen nothing like it, ever. Well, maybe at least not since GWB was president.

      • “In fact, one Romney supporter apparently put a bullet through the window of an Obama campaign office in Denver the other day.”

        THAT IS SO TOTALLY NOT TRUE. Yes, there was a shooting but NO, they have not determined WHO did it or WHY it happened. Just because it was an Obama campaign office, doesn’t mean that (1) it couldn’t have been a black ops perpetrated by the Democrats themselves (they’ve done it before, like planting fake “racists” in Republican campaign audiences) or (2) it might not have been just a stray bullet intended for someone else (it happens all the time in a city near me. Drive-by shooting and a stray bullet.) I can find no story talking about them solving the case, so it’s wrong to attribute motivation and the politics of the perp before anybody has identified the perp. In addition, now they claim that swastikas have been painted on Obama offices in Colorado. How is it that all this is happening there? The usual suspects are claiming it’s an attempt to “intimidate” supporters of Barry to keep them from voting. Vote suppression. Right. As if when you go to the polls, anybody knows who you are voting for. How ridiculous. How many times have we read about, for example, some lefty claiming someone wrote the “n-word” on their dorm door or put a noose outside their room, and then it turned out to be a “self-inflicted” case of racial hatred, meaning they did it themselves for attention and to stir up racial animus? Well, same M.O., so there’s at least the possibility that these people are victimizing themselves.

      • the DOJ and FBI investigating? They will, as soon as they get out of bed with O. andhis administration! DOJ?????Now REALLY!!!

        • Yeah, I know. They’ll investigate this, too, I’m sure. NOT!

          http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/bam_blind_eye_to_illegal_donors_8SWotytr1RvbhyDCRyyrEL

          The Obama re-election campaign has accepted at least one foreign donation in violation of the law — and does nothing to check on the provenance of millions of dollars in other contributions, a watchdog group alleges.

          Chris Walker, a British citizen who lives outside London, told The Post he was able to make two $5 donations to President Obama’s campaign this month through its Web site while a similar attempt to give Mitt Romney cash was rejected. It is illegal to knowingly solicit or accept money from foreign citizens.

          Walker said he used his actual street address in England but entered Arkansas as his state with the Schenectady, NY, ZIP code of 12345.

          When I did Romney’s, the payment got rejected on the grounds that the address on the card did not match the address that I entered,” he said. “Romney’s Web site wanted the code from the back of card. Barack Obama’s didn’t.”

          In September, Obama’s campaign took in more than $2 million from donors who provided no ZIP code or incomplete ZIP codes, according to data posted on the Federal Election Commission Web site.

          The Obama campaign said the FEC data was the result of “a minor technical error.”

          All the ZIP codes and numbers are real and can be verified,” spokesman Michael Czin said.

          The Obama campaign’s apparent lack of safeguards makes it possible to violate the law, says a report released by the Government Accountability Institute, a Florida-based watchdog group. …

          Walker said it should have been clear to the Obama campaign’s computers that his donations came from a computer with a foreign IP address.

          The Obama campaign says it “screens all credit-card contributions that originate from a foreign IP address” and requests proof of citizenship if questions arise.

          But not only did Walker’s Obama donations go through, but he said he began receiving two to three e-mail solicitations a day to give more. The e-mails asked for $188 or more.

          If Walker gave $188, his total contribution to Obama would be $198 — less than the $200 threshold at which campaigns have to identify the donor to the FEC.

          I have not had any e-mails asking for proof of identity,” Walker said. …

          One conduit for Obama donations is Obama.com, which was registered in 2008 to Robert Roche, an American who lives and works in China, where he owns an infomercial company.

          Roche is also a bundler for the Obama campaign and was given a seat at the head table for a 2011 state dinner with the Chinese president

          The GAI report said that the site registration was changed in 2010 to make it anonymous and that it was unclear whether Roche still owns it.

          Roche’s mother in Chicago referred calls to the Obama campaign. The campaign declined to comment.”

          What a surprise! They’re LIARS. They say they check zips, addresses, IP#s, and ask for proof of citizenship, but guess what? They lie.

          • The FEC hasn’t investigated the reports from 2008 when it could have stopped these shenanigans and the foreign funding. Who did they investigate instead, McCain. They had the information from Timmerman, but put it off no doubt after being threatened by the Obama administration. I know I reported on the make-up of the FEC board , and it was being stacked by Obama. We knew it when they were allowing the alien to run for president and that he could get funding – yet they didn’t want to rule on the constitutionality of him needing to be an NBC to be able to raise funds.

  13. Here are your moderate Muslims for you. How’s that Arab Spring working out for ya, huh? http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/10/caught-on-tape-egyptian-president-morsi-joins-in-prayer-for-destruction-of-israel/

    Egyptian president and Muslim Brotherhood member Mohammad Morsi was recently caught praying for the destruction of Israel and its allies. In the video Futouh Abd Al-Nabi Mansour prays:

    [...] Oh Allah, absolve us of our sins, strengthen us, and grant us victory over the infidels. Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, disperse them, rend them asunder. Oh Allah, demonstrate Your might and greatness upon them. Show us Your omnipotence, oh Lord.

    The Obama administration gave the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood government $450 million two weeks after protesters stormed the US embassy and torched the American flag.”

    Morsi is there in the video at Gateway Pundit.

    • I hope this comes up in tomorrow night’s debate or at least in national ads run right before the election. Your tax dollars at work. They pray for OUR destruction and Obama gives them millions of OUR dollars, which we had to BORROW from China!

    • I thought we stopped the money from going to Egypt. I assume it was sent from the State Department’s budget so they didn’t have to ask Congress. That was really important to fund the Muslim Brotherhood! Just like we funded the rebels associated with Al Qaeda in Libya! Like Eric Norstrom said, “for me, the Taliban is on the inside of the building!”

      What is this administration thinking? Are they arming all of our enemies prior to them losing the election? Do they want to ensure that the US is economically in the ditch before they all walk out the door? If their intent was to destroy the U.S., they are doing a great job.

  14. Something else for the debate. True? Ask BARRY!
    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/10/iranian-regime-obama-sent-secret-message-recognizing-our-nuclear-rights/

    Senior Iranian parliamentary sources revealed on Saturday that the Swiss envoy to Tehran has quoted US President Barack Obama as acknowledging Iran’s nuclear rights.

    Swiss Ambassador to Tehran Livia Leu Agosti attended a meeting with senior Iranian foreign ministry officials a few days ago to submit a letter from the US president to Tehran leaders.

    Vice-Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Hossein Ebrahimi told FNA that during the meeting, Agosti had told the Iranian officials that President Barack Obama recognizes Iran’s right of access and use of the nuclear technology.

    “There are a couple of points with regard to this (US) message (to Iran),” Ebrahimi said and added, “Firstly, during the session to submit the message, the Swiss ambassador to Tehran quoted the US president as saying that ‘we (the US) recognize your nuclear rights’.”

    As regards the second issue, the lawmaker said that the Swiss diplomat had also quoted Obama as saying that “I didn’t want to impose sanctions on your central bank but I had no options but to approve it since a Congress majority had approved the decision.”

    Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast said on Sunday that Iran has received a US message regarding the Strait of Hormoz via three different channels.

    “The US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice had handed a letter to Iran’s Ambassador to the UN Mohammad Khazayee; the Swiss Ambassador to Tehran (Livia Leu Agosti) also conveyed the same thing; and Iraqi President Jalal Talabani delivered the same message to Iranian officials,” he said last Sunday.

    The US letter follows threats by Iran last month to shut off the Strait of Hormoz – the world’s most important oil shipping lane – if new US and EU sanctions over its nuclear program halted Iranian oil exports.”

    A SECRET MESSAGE sent through the Swiss.

    • Barry circumvents the Congress and whispers in Iran’s ears…that he doesn’t go along with the sanctions but he had impose them because of the nasty old Congress. He goes along with their right to nukes?? All other countries are worried, especially Israel, but not the usurper. It tells Israel why Obama hasn’t done anything to help them and that his loyalty is not with Israel. Although his actions have shown that over and over no matter what his mouth said. Obama the traitor to the US and Israel. This is much like Obama whispering in Russia’s ears that he will be more flexible after he has won the election. Or his secret conversations with the Taliban.

      Look at who is talking and leaking the “secret” information…Iran! Guess it wasn’t so secret – in fact, they want the world to know how important they are and that Barry is on their side.

      The message was sent though the Swiss because that is how the US communicates with the Iranians.

      What a time for all of Congress to be on break with everything breaking wide open. Time for Boehner to call everyone back to deal with all of this treasonous information.

    • Was this an announcement test gone awry? Was it accidentally broadcast? How weird. It shows what they predict happening and how in the tank they are. Or do they know how the machines are programmed already? Lots of questions, and I hope the Daily Caller gets answers to this.

      “The 2012 presidential election is still more than two weeks away, but on Friday a CBS News affiliate in Arizona called the race for President Barack Obama.

      For 17 seconds, Phoenix, Arizona CBS News affiliate KPHO ran a lower third graphic that showed that Obama had won the Nov. 6 election over Gov. Mitt Romney with 99% of the precincts reporting.”

      • I read that they wouldn’t explain how it happened. Maybe they got the talking points from the Obama campaign, or perhaps from the CIA! Did you see the latest that we’re supposed to believe that the CIA creates “talking points” for the administration, including Susan Rice? If that’s true, it’s perfect evidence of the POLITICIZATION OF INTELLIGENCE. It’s not the job of the CIA to make political talking points for the administration.

  15. This confirms our concern when we knew that Eric Holder was the keynote speaker for CAIR early on. His allegiance to the US was questioned then, and his knowledge that the FBI cut off all ties to CAIR was known at that time. It was in our face then and to know that they have been “invited” to the WH smacks of consorting with the enemy! (H/T to Old Timer for the correct terminology) This is information that should have been out long before now! But the report names the people involved, and it was lucky they compared the names from the WH visitor logs. (Well, they were lucky to get the logs in the first place).

    Report: Islamist radicals find warm welcome in Obama White House
    12:55 AM 10/22/2012 Snip

    Guess who’s coming for coffee? — If you’re in the White House, perhaps an American friend of the terrorist group Hamas. TheDC’s Neil Munro reports:

    “White House visitor records show that administration officials have hosted numerous White House meetings with a series of U.S.-based Muslim political groups that have close ties to jihadi groups and push to reduce anti-terrorism investigations. The visits were discovered by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which compared the Obama White House’s visitor records with its database of Islamist advocacy groups. For example, the records show that officials from the Council on American Islamic Relations have visited the White House 20 times, according to the organization’s report. Members of CAIR were invited to the White House, even though an April 2009 FBI statement said the bureau ‘does not view CAIR as an appropriate liaison partner’ because of its ties to the Hamas jihadi group.”

    This shouldn’t be too hard: You don’t get an invite to the president’s house if you excuse terrorism, or worse, if you are part of a group so radical the FBI won’t even meet with you. Period. End of sentence.

    Administration officials also invited Syrian-born Louay Safi to the White House twice in 2011, even though he had been named an unindicted co-conspirator in two terrorism cases, and had been barred from Fort Hood following the 2009 jihadi attack by a Muslim U.S. Army major. In contrast, White House officials have not invited Zuhdi Jasser, an Arizona-based, American-born moderate Muslim and former Navy officer. “We’ve never been invited and nether have any of [the 24 leaders in] our American Islamic Leadership Coalition,” Jasser told The Daily Caller.

  16. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/10/21/Did-Obama-Give-Gloria-Allred-s-Game-Away
    “Breitbart News already discussed several aspects of the tale in January 2012, including the false claim that Romney had been insensitive to women in his congregation. One woman he had counseled against having an abortion, and who carried her baby to term, told Vogue in February she was grateful to Romney for his help, though she later decided to leave the Mormon church.

    There is perhaps reason to believe that this is the tactic Allred is preparing to use against Romney–and that she may be doing so in coordination with the Obama campaign.

    In a speech on Friday in Virginia, President Barack Obama unveiled a new attack against his rival, accusing him of “Romnesia” (Romney + amnesia) about his past positions. The media treated the word as an innovation.

    But the term has a prior–and specific–history.

    According to the AlterNet article, which was published last Wednesday, “Romnesia” was the term created by Mormon feminists to describe his inability to recall specific details of his advice on abortion to female congregants. (Questions about Romney’s position on abortion, and his role as a church leader, first arose during his campaign for U.S. Senate in 1994.) [So, is that where Barry "found" the term or was this a planted story to SET UP THE MEME, a la the JournOlist?]

    That is Obama’s possible original source–the same story Allred may be mining. [But they had that meeting early in October.]

    In the past several weeks, as Romney has closed the “gender gap” that Obama has enjoyed with women (which is, in reality, a “marriage gap,” as Obama’s edge has been primarily among single women). In response, the Obama campaign has attempted to stir outrage among women, first by attacking Romney’s stance on abortion, then seizing on his “binders full of women” comment at the second presidential debate last week.

    If Allred’s intention is, in fact, to use these past stories–which date from thirty years ago, and were first used against Romney nearly twenty years ago–there is not much she could add.

    With her characteristic theatrics, however–which included exposing a client to the risk of deportation in 2010–she might hope to provoke an outraged reaction from the media.

    It is a good thing the general public has long since stopped paying attention.”

    Now this speculation is on Drudge today, also, and it was on another of the big guys yesterday–Gateway Pundit. Thanks to Dabigragu, however, it seems we scooped all of them on figuring out THIS new meme. I wouldn’t have gone looking if Dabi hadn’t brought it up: http://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2012/10/18/romney-sums-up-why-he-should-win-open-thread/comment-page-1/#comment-95664 I love when that happens! Do they think like us or just read our blog? :)

    Note that once again that Barry PLAGIARIZED the term “he” allegedly coined (according to the lamestream, which of course can’t be expected to do ANY research AT ALL before reporting. This is what reporters are SUPPOSED to do–question, research, look for the angles, look for the story behind the story. It’s what WE do. Had they done so, they might have turned up the red sob sister skank and her meeting with Barry and the probable connection to this new angle in the so-called “war on women.”)

    And how it shows Barry’s desperation, which is characteristic of LOSERS.

    • And The Donald fights back! http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1012/82701.html?hp=r3
      “Donald Trump said Monday that he will reveal “very big” news about President Barack Obama by Wednesday but declined to give any hints about his plan, he said on “Fox & Friends.”

      “Something very, very big concerning the president of the United States,” he said. “It’s going to be very big. I know one thing — you will cover it in a very big fashion.” … Trump, who said he will announce the news on Twitter “sometime probably Wednesday,” suggested it could “possibly” impact the election.”

      The battle of the publicity hounds.

      • I pray it will be big, Donald! This isn’t the time to be playing games. There is too much going on. Why wait until Wednesday – after the debate? Why wasn’t it announced a month ago before people started voting? We’ll see what the news is. Is this the Republican’s Oct. Surprise?

        • Maybe Donald is playing rope a dope. They know that they’re very vulnerable on the documentation front. They also know that Trump is wealthy enough that he can easily overcome any problem with records being “sealed” in Kenya, Indonesia, and Hawaii. The thing about corrupt people is that they can be bought but they often don’t STAY bought. We know the Hawaiians, Indonesians, and Kenyans have been corrupt. But Trump can outbid anybody, can’t he? So this might be a warning shot across the bow, to dissuade the sob sisters and the “hackers” from pulling off their Oct. surprises. Two can play that game and Trump is a master.

      • We need someone who twitters so we will get the information. Anyone? Why not do it on Fox and Friends like he did this announcement?

      • Alex Pappas:

        “Trump adviser knocks down speculation that Obama revelation is about cocaine”

        “An adviser to Donald Trump told The Daily Caller on Tuesday that speculation that the real estate mogul’s “very big” revelation about President Barack Obama expected this week has to do with college-era allegations involving cocaine is not true.

        “Mr. Trump’s announcement is substantially more important to the American people than these allegations made against the president,” Michael Cohen, special counsel to Trump, told TheDC by phone on Tuesday.”

        • Trumped-Up Charges? Republicans Rejected Man’s Claims That Obama Sold Cocaine In College
          Oct 23, 2012

          A man claiming to be a close pal to President Obama during college made contact with Republican operatives recently, ready to go public with claims that Obama used and sold cocaine in college, RadarOnline.com is reporting exclusively. The operatives tried to spread the story through the media and the Romney campaign, a source close to the situation told Radar. “At first he wanted to do a book,” a source close to the situation told RadarOnline.com about the alleged college pal. “But there just wasn’t enough time before the election. “The people he is involved with have produced other credible information that is damaging to national Democratic figures in the past few years.”

          Operatives close to the Romney campaign were contacted and rejected the information, the source told Radar. In fact, the man’s charges about Obama never reached Mitt Romney.

          A proposal of the man’s story was created and viewed by Radar. The document claims that there are multiple sources who can back up allegations that Obama used and sold cocaine in college. [No document was seen or avai on the site.]

          The alleged pal was willing to go on the record for the story and take a polygraph test, according to the source.

          “The operatives close to the Romney campaign believed the man’s story would be the ultimate October Surprise but they got nowhere. “People who would have taken the information to the highest levels of Romney’s campaign just wouldn’t touch it. “They don’t want their candidate smeared with this type of activity.”

          • Obama himself admitted that he used cocaine. As for selling it, didn’t we already hear that he did, at FMD’s hot dog stand? I wouldn’t be surprised if this wasn’t a kind of reverse sting to smear Romney in some way with being negative. He’s such a gentleman. I’m becoming more and more impressed by him. There probably ARE multiple sources who can back up the story. Titcomb comes to mind, if he would talk. A bigger story would be if somebody talks about what goes on NOW, in the people’s house. I read recently that a new book reports that when Carter was in the WH, his son smoked pot WITH Willie Nelson ON THE WH ROOF WHILE THE SECRET SERVICE LOOKED ON. http://www.stltoday.com/entertainment/books-and-literature/mythbusters-local-authors-get-to-the-bottom-of-showbiz-legends/article_14075e18-d2f0-5061-9cb0-9b79b384271e.html

            This shows how classy Republicans are versus DemoncRATS: http://www.salon.com/2012/10/23/todd_akins_militia_ties_exposed/ Now they say Todd Akin has “militia ties”. It’s ridiculous but “by any means necessary.” I didn’t even read the entire thing. This man has been in the House of Representatives for years already. He’s held public office for years. This “event” took place 25 years ago! They’re making an issue of Akin being arrested at an anti-abortion demonstration. Isn’t it the lefties who wear it as a badge of honor to get arrested while protesting something? After all, the potus himself pals around with DOMESTIC TERRORISTS! They got arrested and one admits, “guilty as hell; free as a bird.” Now he’s a “distinguished professor”. Go figure.

            • Yahoo! says some of the Brits are laying odds that Trump’s going to endorse Obama. I hardly think so, after the birth certificate and college records flap. HE says it’s important so perhaps something financial.

              “Famed civil rights attorney Gloria Allred will be in a Boston area courtroom Wednesday in an attempt to unseal the sworn testimony given by Republican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, in a prior court case, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

              “The Boston Globe is headed to court tomorrow morning for an emergency hearing in an attempt to obtain a court order to unseal the sworn testimony given by Mitt Romney in a prior court case and to lift a gag order so that the parties can speak about Romney. Gloria Allred will be in court representing one of the parties in the case,” a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com.

              The emergency hearing will take place at the Norfolk Probate & Family Court in Canton, Massachusetts, and Justice Jennifer Ulwick will oversee the proceedings which will begin at 9 a.m. EST.

              As previously reported, Drudge Report founder and respected politico, Matt Drudge, tweeted Thursday: “Here she comes. Hearing Gloria Allred out there again, about to make a move. After all, it’s her time of the campaign. Team O at the ready!!””

            “Donald Trump is to claim that he has unearthed divorce papers of Michelle Obama and the President, according to a respected financial pundit with links to the tycoon.

            It is alleged that the eccentric real estate mogul will claim that the documents show the First Lady and the President were at one point in their two decades of marriage seriously considering splitting up.

            The claims about divorce papers have previously been made in a book released earlier this year by author Ed Klein. The White House rubbished the allegations then and claimed Klein had a history of making things up.”

            “Let’s take a romp down memory lane and review the typical Obama campaign strategy. Obama became a U.S. senator only by virtue of David Axelrod’s former employer, the Chicago Tribune, ripping open the sealed divorce records of Obama’s two principal opponents.”

            http://townhall.com/columnists/anncoulter/2012/08/01/obamas_signature_move_unsealing_private_records/page/full/

            • Oh, that’s facsinating! I remember reading something like that once before. That they had a rough spot and somebody filed for divorce. My guess is this is a warning shot–call off the red sob sister attack dog or else. Is that why Trump says he’ll be talking sometime Wednesday? Like after Allred goes to court? Playing hard ball now. With Trumps billions, he might have bought any number of items that he could use, if he must. Pull up a seat, folks!

          • And the divorce papers say what???? Ideas: The children are not his so she claim full custody. How about limitations from father taking children out of the country even though the girls have dual citizenship? Or a different name is used for Barack Obama. How about the signatures? How about sue for full custody, on Michelle’s part, because of ‘at-risk’ life style of husband/father? Oh! The speculations and preponderances!

            • It will change the way you perceive Obama, Trump said. I can think of so many possibilities, but then again, I can’t even imagine. I do remember, considering the late McGovern being in the news (RIP), how he threw his VP candidate under the bus when it turned out he had been hospitalized for a “nervous breakdown”. Remember that? Tom Eagleton. Oh, it was a huge “scandal” that the man had depression. He even got electroshock treatments. Nowadays, guys like Jesse Jackson Jr. are heroes for having “bipolar disorder” (when I suspect they have need-to-get-away-from-media-and-legal-eagles syndrome). He sent out an email to followers assuring them that he’s “human”. But back then, it was a scandal. Could Eagleton be trusted, being only a heartbeat away from the nuclear button? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Eagleton#Selection_as_vice_presidential_candidate McGovern said he was “1000%” behind his choice, until he threw him under the bus, even though a poll said 77% of people said his condition didn’t matter in their vote.

              So now we possibly have a potus who was suicidal, according to his own wife (if true)? And this took place 12 short years ago. What other conditions might be in there? Drug addiction? Speculations, indeed! We’ve had to do that for 4 years. I wonder if we’ll ever learn ANYTHING concrete about this guy?

    • Good one Miri! I love it when we scoop the big boys! To bad we don’t get paid the big bucks!

      Barry and Joe – both plagiarizers – imagine that. You’d think they pay their staff and they would research it so they wouldn’t be caught in such a bind. They are young things, so they probably were taught at the knees of the liberals who lie and cheat – so they see nothing wrong with it.

      WTPOTUS doing the work that the mainstream media refuses to do!
      This should be IS our slogan!

      • I thought that WAS our slogan! :)

        Did you happen to see that show Sunday morning where they interviewed two plagiarists? One of them was Jason Blair–the guy who made up so much stuff at the NY Times besides plagiarizing. The other was a “writer” who just made a mosaic out of pieces of other political thriller or detective novels to create stories he put his name on. I didn’t catch the name. BOTH of them, however, played the victim. Both said they considered suicide. Blair is now, get this, a “life coach”. Teaching others what not to do. He claims he did it because he has bipolar disorder! You can’t make this stuff up. They had a segment about the software that professors (should) use to identify when papers they receive from students are just “cut and paste” conglomerations. It was pretty amazing how easy it was to find that in the example given, most of the information was plagiarized from elsewhere! The “young things” in Barry’s campaign probably came up through this system in college where it was par for the course to just steal parts of already published works and other students’ work to “write” their papers. I used to take parts of Barry’s wonderful speeches and search the Web for the same phrases. Most of the time, the best lines were stolen! Any “reporter” could do the same. The thing is, they went out of their way to claim that Barry coined that term for Romney, when a simple search of the Web would have proved that he didn’t and also it would have given them an inkling of what he was planning next. But they don’t want to know, so that’s why they don’t bother to fact check him.

        • I stand totally corrected! Of course, it is and has been what we and all of our researchers have done to expose the underbelly of Obama, and his connections to all of the radicals and organizations hell bent on destroying our country.

  17. Obama calls out to all radical preachers but the campaign is denying it happened. To bad, the former mayor reported it in the SF Chronicle. They lie even though it is in black and white.

    Obama campaign denies Willie Brown’s claim of Obama-Wright outreach
    conference call
    1:29 AM 10/22/2012 Snips

    President Obama recently talked to Rev. Wright. Or not — TheDC’s Neil Munro reports on a conversation that did or did not happen:
    “Willie Brown, the former mayor of San Francisco, reported Saturday that President Barack Obama held a semi-secret conference call with the racist preacher Jeremiah Wright and other ministers last weekend to boost African-American turnout. But Obama for America campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith denied it flatly to The Daily Caller on Sunday. ‘It is not true,’ Smith, the campaign’s rapid-response director, wrote in an email to TheDC.”

    Something smells fishy. Why would Brown just make something like that up?

    Brown reported his claim in his San Francisco Chronicle column Saturday evening,Pressed on whether Wright has “engaged any campaign activity with President Obama over the last two months,” Smith replied, “He has not. The story is totally incorrect.”

    Brown’s claim of a secret outreach effort to a group of black religious figures including Obama’s former pastor came with a parallel claim that anti-black racism will drop Obama’s Election Day results by roughly 4 percentage points below pre-election polls.

    • Easy to figure who’s lying: Who stands to gain the most? BARRY. He lies. We know that. They are ANYTHING BUT “transparent”. They lie because they must because if they told the truth, they’d never have gotten many votes, so it would have been next to impossible to steal the 2008 election.

  18. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/10/french-youths-occupy-mosque-in-poiters-to-protest-islamic-influence-in-france/

    Now that’s a really interesting story. French youth protest at a mosque over their government allowing or encouraging immigration into France, where they say they are losing their culture in the same way that Native Americans lost theirs. I didn’t know that Paris is over 40% immigrant now! That’s an amazing statistic. No wonder the French are upset. It’s a valid complaint and an important lesson for us because not only are immigrants who don’t assimilate a threat to a culture and a way of life, but when they’re also of the radical Muslim persuasion, they’re a threat to the people who aren’t Muslim and to the country as a whole. The conundrum for the lefties is how will they reconcile this? They are in the forefront of claiming that various “native” groups have a right to preserve their language, their lands, their cultures against assimilation. So what’s wrong with the French (as in Quebec) claiming the same right? They assert their right to control immigration to protect their culture and way of life. Of course, they ought to know that persons of non-color, otherwise known as “whites”, don’t HAVE ANY RIGHT TO PRIDE OF CULTURE. At least not in the leftist universe.

  19. Just when you think you’ve seen everything, the lamestream throws a curve ball. What’s up with this? A CBS news PRO-ROMNEY video. No snarking to be found. Amazing and amazing stories about the REAL Mitt Romney:
    http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2012/08/cbs-news-on-romney-and-doing-business-the-mormon-way.html

    Watch the video. It’s amazing. Even Oprah’s friend Gayle King praises Romney. At first, the guest author has a look on his face as if he fears a barrage! Rose has a sour look on his face, sometimes, as if it kills him to do this report. One thing that blares out to me is that this guy, Romney, IS the ANTI-OBAMA. Mitt is humble, self-effacing, and out of his Mormon philosophy, doesn’t brag. If that’s not the opposite of Barry, I don’t know what is. Here’s another story from CBS: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7405696n That one has a little more spin that they probably believe is “balance” but I see as typical leftist attempts to tamp down good news about Romney. But it’s still rather amazing that ANY positive story about Romney is being aired. One wonders if they begin to FEAR that Romney just might win and they will then have to cozy up to him in future, so they’re starting to brown nose in advance.

  20. Now if we can only get Barry to try to open a Swiss bank account, maybe we’ll finally find out his citizenship status! Because of new rules under BARRY, Swiss banks won’t accept new accounts from Americans. They make people PROVE their citizenship before they can open an account and U.S. citizens need not apply. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444592704578062570295543436.html?mod=WSJ_hp_LEFTWhatsNewsCollection

    • US citizens need not apply…..so ….what makes you think Barry is a US citizwn all of a sudden? ANd besides he probably has an account in some body elses name.

      • I don’t think he’s a citizen. I was making the point that if we want somebody to vet him, then the Swiss would do it, based upon his own regulations, should he TRY to get a Swiss bank account. But I’m sure he has money socked away somewhere, probably Switzerland, and probably, as you say, in some other name. He has several.

    • Oops, Hasty reading your comment Mire. I get what you’re saying…we might find out his citizenship. OK

  22. http://pjmedia.com/rogerlsimon/2012/10/22/should-barack-obama-resign-tonight/?singlepage=true

    “I won’t hear what I’d like to hear at the presidential foreign policy debate Monday.

    What I’d like to hear is Barack Obama resigning over Benghazi, the most extreme public mishandling of an attack on American personnel ever, certainly in my lifetime. If I (or most people) had been president and something like that happened on my (our) watch — and then I had lied about it myself while urging others to cover up — I would be so ashamed of myself I wouldn’t be able to come out in public.

    But that’s not what happened. In fact, the reverse occurred. The president acted as if it was Mitt Romney’s fault for ever bringing the subject up. And he had a willing co-conspirator in the morally stunted Candy Crowley.

    Obama’s outrage during the second debate even at being questioned on his response to the terrorist killings is one of the ugliest displays of narcissism I have ever witnessed from a politician and certainly the ugliest if you consider the ramifications of his behavior.

    That the mainstream media ignored this reaction is a testament to their enduring pathology. Or perhaps to a secret longing for the divine right of kings.

    But it doesn’t matter. If Barack Obama does not resign on Monday, his reputation will be destroyed forever, even if he wins a second term, because Benghazi will not go away. This is not just because of the seemingly insoluble conundrums described so thoroughly by Watergate author (among other things) James Rosen in his Wall Street Journal oped — “The Three Benghazi Timelines We Need Answers About” — but for a reason yet more disturbing.

    Only a man with a leftover undergraduate ambivalence about Western civilization would have dealt with the Benghazi catastrophe in such a fashion in the first place. Barack Obama responded to the terrorism like a Columbia junior stoned on a reefer, particularly one from his era. He took another toke and moved on. And then when he was told he couldn’t do that, he got angry at the people telling him.” More at the link. I hope he’s right.

    • http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444868204578062420490836106.html?mod=WSJ_Opinion_LEADTop That’s a link to the Rosen piece that Simon wrote about. He begins,

      “‘I do not think,” Nixon campaign aide Jeb Magruder told the Senate Watergate committee in the spring of 1973, “there was ever any discussion that there would not be a coverup.” Mr. Magruder’s lament aptly described the bureaucratic impulse to hide inconvenient facts that seizes every modern White House at some point. His testimony was brought to mind by the growing number of high-profile Republicans accusing the Obama White House of engaging in a coverup in the Benghazi case.

      Much remains unknown about the terrorist attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans on Sept. 11. To fill in those gaps, three separate probes—by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the State Department’s Accountability Review Board, and various congressional committees—are now under way. But in our warp-speed information age, enough evidence has already accrued to the record to lead even dispassionate observers to ponder whether the term “coverup” applies.

      William Safire, the late New York Times columnist—and one of the few senior Nixon aides to escape Watergate unsullied—once defined coverup broadly to include “any plan to avoid detection of wrongdoing . . . an act to conceal a mistake.”

      Today, the issue is not so much the withholding of information as the denial of the obvious: The stubborn insistence by top Obama administration officials on an interpretation of events starkly at odds with the plainly correct conclusion of terrorism. When White House Press Secretary Jay Carney finally acknowledged that the terrorism conclusion was “self-evident” after he had spent the previous eight days pressing a wholly different account of events, Mr. Carney’s admission carried strong echoes of Nixon-era Press Secretary Ron Ziegler declaring that his earlier Watergate statements were “inoperative.””

  23. I wish I’d said ALL OF THIS! http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/10/obama_is_right.html I’ll give you just the conclusion, but you have to read the entire thing to appreciate it. It is like having dessert to read articles like this. They’re coming now “fast and furious” and I am enjoying it so much. It almost makes it worthwhile–all of our voices crying in the wilderness over the past 4 years and being mostly unheard. Like Cassandra. How I hope that the American people can HEAR US NOW:

    During the three and a half years of his presidency, for Barack, the buck has always stopped at Bush. Now, with Benghazi, that has evolved to the buck stops anywhere but Barack.

    Hillary has now accepted full responsibility for the Libyan debacle, but which is a more damning reality: Obama is incompetent, or he’s woefully uninformed? It seems like a wash to me.

    On the anniversary of 9/11, our ambassador, lured to Benghazi for assassination, went missing while the consulate was under attack…and Barack went to bed. The next morning, with our ambassador dead, Barack flew to Vegas — that’s not even leading from behind.

    Who would have ever thought that “leading from behind” would be setting the bar too high?

    An Obama Department of State Regional Security Officer Eric Nordstrom said, “the Taliban is on the inside of the building.” Wow, the Taliban inside the State Department — who would have thought it? What is that, leading from inside?

    But don’t worry, an investigation is underway — Hillary said so — it should be completed sometime after November 6, just like all things Barack.

    The president is right; it is the story…and for almost four years, the story Barack Obama told America has been “a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.””

  24. “Michelle Obama planned on divorcing her husband and even prepared divorce papers while Obama was in the Illinois State Legislature according to best selling author and Investigative Journalist Dr. Jerome Corsi.

    “This has been an arranged life and marriage from almost the beginning from what I can figure for Barack Obama” Corsi stated on Ears to Hear Radio.”

        Plastic surgeons – Obama’s facial forgery.
        ==========
        “Did Obama have a Nose Job to Hide Davis Resemblance ?”

        “It appears Obama had some aesthetic refinement. The upper and middle nasal vault are both narrowed. The tip and infra-tip are softer and the tip has been rotated up. Alar height appears to have been reduced so the lower part of the nose that makes up the nostrils appears softer. These changes are not characteristic of the natural aging process, where the tip tends to settle and rotate downward causing the appearance of a longer nose and where the tip also often widens noticeably.”

        J David Holcomb, MD

        Sarasota FL”

        “In the 3 younger photographs, Obama appears to have a bulbous nasal tip with wide alar bases, not uncommon with males and with skin of color. The more current photos show a thinner nasal tip which suggests some finessing of his nose over the years, but it is a very natural-looking effect.”

        • Wow. There’s an original idea. HA! Just kidding. For how long have we here been harping on that schnozz?

          • They’re being kind, aren’t they? To make himself look less like FMD? Perhaps to make himself look less black. That’s what most blacks would say if you told them someone had a nose narrowed.

          • When I think of a black who had a real nose job – it was Michael Jackson. I thought it got to the point of being disfiguring. He was a total distortion of his original self.

            While very interesting, I don’t think that the description of changes observed by the doctor makes up for all of the differences we’ve seen in photos. Mr. Eye Candy isn’t all that!

      • I listened and I wonder what they’re hinting about with regard to the birth certificate. Any clue? Gilbert won’t talk about it. Also, imho, he DIDN’T answer the questions about where he gets the money to send all those copies all over the place (if he really does). Saying it’s from their publicity budget means little. But if it’s a private business, it’s not really important where they got their capital. I’m assuming from the owners of the company.

  26. Playing the Mormon card again: http://twitchy.com/2012/10/21/bette-midler-feigns-disgust-at-polygamy-in-romneys-family-tree-ignores-much-more-extensive-polygamy-in-obamas-family-tree/

    “Show Mittsy some respect. What man alive hasn’t lied about who he really is? Wasn’t his grandpa in Mexico because he had all those wives??

    Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) October 21, 2012

    Actually it was Romney’s great grandfather, not his grandfather. But no matter. The anti-Mormon dog whistle is clear enough either way.”

    But Twitchy counters with the Muslim card:

    “Oddly, she doesn’t bring up the multiple wives of President Obama’s father, grandfather, and great grandfather.

    By the way, since Midler thinks same-sex marriage is “fabulous,” on what basis does she (apparently) think polygamy is shameful? Just wondering.”

    Excellent!

  27. http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2012/10/21/Team-Obama-Signs-Up-Foreigner-Who-Donated-To-Campaign-For-Volunteer-Events-Without-His-Knowledge?utm_source=e_breitbart_com&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Breitbart+News+Roundup%2C+October+22%2C+2012&utm_campaign=20121022_m114102703_Breitbart+News+Roundup%2C+October+22%2C+2012&utm_term=More

    Now the UK guy who reported that Barry’s campaign took his donation ILLEGALLY is reporting that he made TWO illegal donations AND that now they’re thanking him for signing up to get out the vote and working the phones, when he didn’t “volunteer” for either, obviously!

  28. They cheat because they must. In Florida, Republicans are being sent hoax letters telling them they’re not registered to vote, in an attempt to keep them from going to the polls. The letters look official, with correct letterhead and the correct names of their polling officials in them. http://www.clickorlando.com/news/Feds-to-probe-possible-voter-fraud-in-Florida/-/1637132/17086510/-/5x9wgrz/-/index.html

    Oh, not to worry. The Feds are on it. Results of investigation likely to come out, if ever, after the election. Slaps on the wrist for all or ELSE no perp will be identified. Dirty tricks is what they do.

    “Officials said the voters who have received the letters thus far are white, registered Republicans who consistently vote in elections.

    “This is a major concern,” said Seminole County Supervisor of Elections Mike Ertel, who received a letter from a voter mailed from Seattle with no return address. “You should not expect a letter from your elections office saying, ‘You’re not registered to vote, please don’t go to the polls.’ That’s ridiculous.””

  29. Rope-a-dope .. Did the divorce papers say O was with another man?
    or Barry’s name was not the one he uses now? Or his date of birth was?
    Or married prior? Or where he was born? …. His real dad/mom?
    What is the is Halloween find? one more…… day!

    • That UK paper says that she planned to divorce him on account of his losing a political race in 2000. That’s what you call standing by your man. It would be such delicious irony if there’s something salacious in those records, given his track record for destroying his opponents by getting newspapers to get private divorce and custody records unsealed and then using the media to mischaracterize or smear opponents. Or maybe it’s all a bluff. Given the media today, it will likely hurt Romney. They’ll blame him although they never blamed Obama for the stinking filthy tactics he used, the worst being harming the Ryans’s son. By any means necessary. That’s Barry, Axelrod, Allred, too, apparently. What a skanky sleaze.

    • Oops, Zen, asked some of these same questions up in thread; did not get down this far before commenting. Divorce papers can be so interesting.
      Do you think GloriaHorria is asking for Mitt’s records to be opened as a threat/blackmail so Trump won’t announce discoveries? Fascinating that she is all a hustle as soon as Trumpster said something. To react shows fear, I think.

      • They don’t even say what type of court case this would be that Romney testified in. He and Ann never divorced, so what kind of case is it? I would guess that any ruling that a sealed court record is pertinent to a presidential race would be precedent for getting sealed college records, sealed government records, and sealed birth records. btw, I’m still trying to figure out how it’s possible that the media got all those college records on that guy who’s accused of plotting to blow up that building in NYC. Seems that colleges have variable standards, depending upon whether one is a potential alien terrorist versus the potus.

        • “… potential alien terrorist versus the potus.” With the current presodidn’t ‘alien terrorist and potus are one and the same, ya think?

        • Oh, here is a hilarious statement by someone in the lamestream. Last sentence will have you rolling:
          http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2012/10/trump-obama-divorce-papers.html

          “This isn’t the first time the divorce rumor has reared its head during the campaign. Unbiased newsman Ed Klein wrote in his most recent book, The Amateur, that during a rough patch in the Obama marriage in 2000, Michelle Obama “actually had divorce papers drawn up.”

          Unlike with the cocaine story, a Trump spokesman did not, when asked by the Daily Mail, deny Kass’s tweet. Still, you obviously want to take all of this with the world’s largest grain of salt. But let’s say these divorce papers are, indeed, Trump’s scoop. And let’s even assume, hypothetically, that they are authentic. Why would Trump expect this totally irrelevant invasion of privacy to hurt Obama politically in any way?

          Can you believe it? Do you think that writer has A CLUE about Barry’s history in Illinois/Chicago? Blair Hull? Jack Ryan? Were those invasions of privacy successfully hurtful politically to Barry’s opponents? Why, yes they were, with the help of a complicit media. Maybe that’s the writer’s point: Since Barry’s one of theirs, they won’t run with the ball and pummel the victim like they gleefully did with Hull and Ryan.

  30. Bette Midler … we must remember SHE nearly had a Mental Breakdown
    while filming ….. THE ROSE” so their miss M’…. smarty pants!!!!

  31. Wow. Here’s an outrage! http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/10/uk-police-arrest-top-anti-muslim-activists-hold-leader-in-muslim-wing-of-prison/

    “British police arrested top anti-Muslim activist ‘Tommy Robinson’ on charges of entering US illegally to speak at a conference with Pamela Gellar. Over 53 people were arrested including leaders of the English Defence League, Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll. …

    British police are holding him in a Muslim wing of a prison with Muslim cell mates.
    British Freedom Organization reported:

    We have just heard that Tommy Robinson has been incarcerated in London’s Wandsworth Prison, sharing a cell with Muslims on a wing full of Muslims screaming death threats at him.”

  32. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/10/breaking-anonymous-releases-video-promises-bomb-attack-in-us-on-november-5th/

    Anonymous is threatening to commit a terror attack on a government building on the day before the election. Jerks. These are Barry’s base.

  33. Breaking News – Greta – FOX

    Greta obtained emails from the State Department. Emails were sent to all the important people in real time when the attack occurred in Benghazi. The administration knew Libya attack was by a terrorist group as it happened. A group associated with Al Qaeda accepted responsibility (Al Sharia). It started about 5 pm on Sept. 11th. It was a well planned attack.

    Why didn’t the administration do anything to help the Ambassador and the others. They just sat and watched it happen.

    Who made up the idea to blame a video? Who started the story about it starting from protests? Neither were mentioned in the emails. Where did these claims come from?

    Also mentioned is that the terrorist group accepted responsibility as it happened! The terrorists were on Facebook and Twitter reporting this.

    • Wow! Leave it to Greta. I just posted that Breitbart says they complied with a subpoena late yesterday afternoon, before the debate.

      • I bet Mitt knew something was going to break shortly so he didn’t want to be associated with Libya in any way, and that is why he didn’t ask any questions during the debate. It makes sense to me that he is getting national security reports now so it would be easy to out Obama on a number of things, and he didn’t. He is letting Obama and his administration fall on their own sword.

        • Glenn Beck explaining the situation with arming Al Qaeda, as we suspected.

        • Think of all the information to be dropped tomorrow – do they think the Libya news will drown out whatever else is supposed to be revealed. A premptive dump? We will see.

  34. moved to new thread.

  35. Wow. Here’s a surprise! Electronic machines in NC count ROMNEY votes for Barry! http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/10/north-carolina-voting-machines-count-romney-votes-for-obama-video/

    “The presidential election is just around the corner and voting issues have already become a problem in Guilford County.

    On Monday, several voters complained that their electronic ballot machine cast the wrong vote. All the complaints were made by people who voted at the Bur-Mil Park polling location.

    One of the voters, Sher Coromalis, says she cast her ballot for Governor Mitt Romney, but every time she entered her vote the machine defaulted to President Obama.

    “I was so upset that this could happen,” said Coromalis.

    Guilford County Board of Elections Director George Gilbert says the problem arises every election. It can be resolved after the machine is re-calibrated by poll workers.

    “It’s not a conspiracy it’s just a machine that needs to be corrected,” Gilbert said.”

    It’s not a conspiracy. But how do they control for all the people who don’t NOTICE that their vote was cast for the wrong person before some responsible person notifies them of the need to “recalibrate” the machine? It should NEVER, EVER happen. Nobody who reads this can believe that any machine can accidentally flip votes to the other person. “DEFAULTED.” That’s the operative word. Yes, a program can be set up to default and it sounds extremely suspicious that the default is to Obama.

    • A commenter at GP says just pay attention to make sure your vote counts. All well and good, but how do we control for all those people who DON’T pay attention? Who would care if the default were for Romney, but it’s NO COINCIDENCE that the default is for Obama. BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. Once the voter leaves the booth, there’s no way to “recount” to make sure the vote cast was the one the person intended to cast.
