How does the Washington DC fire department keep up? Surely they’ve been called multiple times to the White House, the State Department, and the studios of CNN, MSNBC, and all of the other complicit, mendacious, mainstream media organizations, to put out the fires in the pants of Barack Hussein Obama, his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, his UN Ambassador Susan Rice, his Press Secretary Jay Carney, and his senior campaign advisor Robert Gibbs.
The lies have been coming fast and furious from these current and former public employees (who are supposed to answer to us), as well as from other Obama defenders and apologists. It’s getting pretty bad when even the representatives of the left on FOX News (in this case Kirsten Powers) are appalled at all of the lies, going so far as to say that the media take their “marching orders” from Obama to help him to create and maintain his preferred “narrative” (the one that must be created in order to hide the truth from the voters.) h/t Bridgette
We the People were told that our fellow citizens did NOT die in Benghazi because of a preplanned terrorist attack on the anniversary 9/11. A lie! [emphasis added to all quotes]
The administration’s story itself has recently begun to shift, with Matthew Olsen, the director of the National Counter-Terrorism Center, telling Congress on Wednesday that the attackers may have had links to al Qaeda and Carney characterizing the incident as a “terrorist attack.” …
But other indications that the White House’s early narrative was faulty are also beginning to emerge. One current U.S. intelligence officer working on the investigation into the incident [said] … that the attackers had staked out and monitored the U.S. consulate in Benghazi before the attack, a move that suggests pre-planning.
What’s more, two U.S. intelligence officials [said] … that the intelligence community is currently analyzing an intercept between a Libyan politician whose sympathies are with al Qaeda and the Libyan militia known as the February 17 Brigade—which had been charged with providing local security to the consulate. In the intercept, the Libyan politician apparently asks an officer in the brigade to have his men stand down for a pending attack—another piece of evidence implying the violence was planned in advance.
Now that’s an astounding piece of news–that Libyan militias were supposed to be protecting our consulate, but an Al Qaeda-connected politician may have ordered them to allow the attack to happen! That fact and a few other facts, if widely reported, would shock every American. What other facts? That the “rules of engagement” required the Libyans who guarded our consulate to carry unloaded weapons and forbade them to load their weapons, even if they had bullets!
The overblown outcry about Mitt Romney’s hasty statement that criticized the president was a coordinated, planned distraction from the truth of what happened in Benghazi. A distraction that was probably orchestrated by the White House.
The huge outcry about that mendaciously edited, incomplete “secret video” of Romney was also a distraction from the truth of what really happened in Libya. Bread and circuses, folks. Bread and circuses. Anything to keep the public amused and ill-informed.
The next distraction/deflection has already been devised, and the complicit, mendacious media are already picking up the hue and cry, excoriating CNN (poetic justice) for going against the alleged wishes of terrorist victim and late Ambassador J. Christopher Steven’s family by reporting (truthfully) that he was alarmed about the rise in Islamic extremism in Libya and knew that he was on an Al Qaeda “hit list”.
For once, CNN did the right thing. How did they come to know these facts? They found the ambassador’s journal in the burned-out consulate; they knew what Stevens wrote in it; and they knew that this was extremely timely and newsworthy information that not only the People but also their representatives in Congress NEED TO KNOW. What we needed to hear was at least some of the TRUTH about what REALLY happened in Benghazi.
But this story is also being derailed by planned deflection. The focus is being shifted from what the ambassador knew and feared, to the purported “unethical” behavior of CNN for not repressing the contents of his “personal” diary, instead paraphrasing the important facts they gleaned from it concerning conditions on the ground in Libya. This is what was to be suppressed, not out of respect for Steven’s family, but to protect the Obama administration from the backdraft of truth!
Three days after he was killed, CNN found a journal belonging to late U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. The journal was found on the floor of the largely unsecured consulate compound where he was fatally wounded.
CNN notified Stevens’ family about the journal within hours after it was discovered and at the family’s request provided it to them via a third party.
The journal consists of just seven pages of handwriting in a hard-bound book.
For CNN, the ambassador’s writings served as tips about the situation in Libya, and in Benghazi in particular. CNN took the newsworthy tips and corroborated them with other sources.
A source familiar with Stevens’ thinking told CNN earlier this week that, in the months leading up to his death, the late ambassador worried about what he called the security threats in Benghazi and a rise in Islamic extremism.
Stevens died on September 11, along with three other Americans, when the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi came under attack amid a large protest about a U.S.-made film that mocked the Muslim Prophet Mohammed.
We now know that their last paragraph contains several other falsehoods. First, there was NO protest in Benghazi that night. What happened was a well-planned terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11. There was a protest in Egypt. However, that protest was not because of this never-seen film that allegedly mocked Islam. The Egyptians were commemorating the Islamist “victory” on 9/11/01, protesting drone strikes, and attempting to pressure the U.S. into releasing the Blind Sheikh.
And what about the film? The Obama administration has sought to explain nearly everything that has happened over the past two weeks as a response to the video. President Obama denounced it during his remarks at the memorial for the four Americans killed in Libya. So did Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. White House spokesman Jay Carney has mentioned it almost daily. At the end of last week, the United States spent $70,000 to buy ads in Pakistan to distance the U.S. government from its message.
That’s ironic. In its effort to deflect blame for the unrest, the administration has given more attention to this obscure film than it ever would have gotten if they’d simply ignored it. It’s true that radical Islamists used the film to help populate the 9/11 protests at the U.S. embassy in Cairo. But they also told fellow radicals to join in a protest of the continued detention of Omar Abdel Rahman, the blind sheikh who was behind the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. And some of the others who gathered were “Ultras”—soccer hooligans looking for trouble.
The American embassy in Cairo first drew attention to the film in its statement. And the administration—after initially distancing itself from that statement—has made it the centerpiece of its public relations campaign ever since, as protests spread to more than 20 countries. The result: Every Muslim with access to media is now aware of a bizarre video that had a few thousand views on YouTube on September 10.
That’s exactly what the radicals wanted, according to a U.S. intelligence official familiar with the reporting on Egypt. The focus on the film was an “information operation” by jihadists designed to generate rage against America. If he’s right, it worked.
Barack Obama came to office promising to repair relations with the Islamic world. What he couldn’t accomplish by the mere fact of his presidency, through his name and his familiarity with Islam, he would achieve through “smart diplomacy.”
Instead, over the last four years, and particularly the last two weeks, the defining characteristics of his foreign policy have been mendacity, incompetence, and, yes, stupidity.
As the administration’s lies began to be refuted, they came up with a video allegedly showing Libyans finding Ambassador Stevens, alone in the empty consulate, locked in a “safe room”. The “narrative” that came along with the video was that these Libyan rescuers shouted in relief that the Ambassador was still alive, praised Allah, and called for an ambulance. However, those were more lies. These were looters who shouted with joy, as Professor Phyllis Chesler explains:
I have been looking at the photos and the brief video of Ambassador Stevens and I have spoken to two different Arabists, who assure me that the mob dragging Steven’s body are chanting a song of victory over one’s enemies and are praising God for it.
What other lies are we being told by our employees? We’re being lied to by the very people who are supposed to work for us and who are supposed to keep our representatives informed. Is it true that the Ambassador’s body was missing for twelve hours and that he was sodomized? Will We the People ever be told the truth about how Ambassador Stevens died?
The Weekly Standard reminds us that this is not the first time that the Obama Administration has outright lied to us about Islamic terror directed at our country’s citizens:
On December 28, 2009, three days after Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab attempted to detonate explosives in his underwear aboard an airliner over Detroit, President Obama told the country that the incident was the work of “an isolated extremist.” It wasn’t. Abdulmutallab was trained, directed, and financed by Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, a fact he shared with investigators early in his interrogation.
The same thing happened less than six months later, after Faisal Shahzad attempted to blow up his Nissan Pathfinder in Times Square. Two days following the botched attack, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano took to the Sunday shows to dismiss reports of a conspiracy and insisted that the attempted bombing was just a “one-off” by a single attacker. It wasn’t. A week later, after much of the information had leaked, Attorney General Eric Holder acknowledged that the United States had “evidence that shows that the Pakistani Taliban was behind the attack. We know that they helped facilitate it, we know that they probably helped finance it and that he was working at their direction.”
In each instance, top administration officials quickly downplayed or dismissed the seriousness of the events, only to acknowledge, after the shock had worn off and the media had turned to other news, that their initial stories were incorrect. Whether it was because the attempted attacks were unsuccessful or because the media simply lost interest, the administration largely escaped serious criticism for making claims that turned out to be wrong.
These claims aren’t just “wrong.” They’re lies. Outright lies. Mendacious lies. Deliberate lies. Disrespectful lies.
This administration feeds lies to the willing media and doesn’t extend to our representatives the courtesy of giving them as much detail. (It was after the terrorist attack that Mitt Romney finally began to get intelligence briefings. One can only wonder if what they tell him is truthful.)
Senate Republicans are furious the Obama administration rebuffed their attempts to learn details of the Benghazi attack, only to give the coveted information to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
Senators say they were rebuffed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when they pressed for more information about the attack that killed U.S. envoy Christopher Stephens in Libya.
“That is the most useless, worthless briefing I have attended in a long time,” Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) told reporters after the closed-door session.
GOP lawmakers were incensed to find many of the details they tried to learn Thursday were in a front-page article in The Times the following morning.
“I was very disappointed in the briefing yesterday, too. The bottom line is, we asked questions like, ‘How many people were at the Benghazi consulate?’ You pick up The New York Times and you get a blow-by-blow description of what supposedly went on,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
One gets the distinct impression, however, that what was fed to the media is the “narrative” that Obama wants the PEOPLE to believe. They don’t feed this narrative to Congress because there may be repercussions if they lie to them. Compare what was said to the media early on to what Matthew Olsen told Senators: Olsen told them the truth–that it looked like a terrorist attack. Why? Was it because it’s a crime to lie to the Senate, but it’s not a crime to lie to the media? Lying to the representatives of the people could also get your boss impeached. Lying to the voters might get your boss booted right out of the White House. But the truth might get him booted, too. Thus, the reason for the lies in the first place.
How many more lies will We the People accept from this administration? Will all the citizens of the United States finally WISE UP about Obama? We’ll find out in less than two months. We the People need to hold Obama’s feet to the fire and demand the truth about Benghazi.
btw, did Representative Michele Bachmann and those other members of Congress ever get answers to their questions about potential infiltration of our government by the Muslim Brotherhood? Exactly how did Huma Abedin get a security clearance?
Sources: Slain U.S. ambassador recruited jihadists
Egyptian officials say Stevens worked with Saudis against Assad
Sept. 24, 2012 Snips
Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador murdered in Libya, played a central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria, according to Egyptian security officials speaking to WND.
Stevens served as a key contact with the Saudis to coordinate the recruitment by Saudi Arabia of Islamic fighters from North Africa and Libya. The jihadists were sent to Syria via Turkey to attack Assad’s forces, said the security officials.
The officials said Stevens also worked with the Saudis to send names of potential jihadi recruits to U.S. security organizations for review. Names found to be directly involved in previous attacks against the U.S., including in Iraq and Afghanistan, were ultimately not recruited by the Saudis to fight in Syria, said the officials.
In Syria, meanwhile, the U.S. may be currently supporting al-Qaida and other jihadists fighting with the rebels targeting Assad’s regime.
Isn’t Barry on record criticizing our government for, in the past, supporting OBL when he was fighting the Russians in Afghanistan? Is this much different? (Imho, far worse, considering what’s happened since OBL fought the Soviets.) No WONDER they’re trying to hide the fact that the attack in Benghazi was another 9/11 terrorist attack by AL QAEDA. How INSANE is it to arm Al Qaeda? WILL the media EVER report this fact to the public? (Meaning those who don’t read the blogs.) Will Romney even MENTION this fact or would Romney himself have been arming JIHADISTS in the Middle East? Guess what? One thing we should have learned from the fiasco of helping to create Al Qaeda is that they WILL turn the guns we gave them and the tactics we taught them against US. It’s not like they haven’t said enough times that WE are the “Great Satan” and their ultimate enemies.
Complaints Mount Against Michelle Obama’s New Lunch Menu
Sep 23, 2012 Snips
In Wisconsin, high school athletes are complaining about not getting enough to eat each day, due to the skimpy new school lunch menu mandated by the United States Department of Agriculture and First Lady Michelle Obama. The story we published earlier this week on that subject is unfortunately not unique. Students across the country are complaining about the new school lunch regulations.
Some are throwing away their vegetables while others are adapting to the rules by becoming industrious. In New Bedford, Massachusetts, students have created a black market – for chocolate syrup. The kiddie capitalists are smuggling in bottles of it and selling it by the squeeze, according to SouthCoastToday.com. [Now that is industrious! Those are smart little capitalists! Hey kids, how about a protest to tell Michelle to shove her own black beans!]
Nancy Carvalho, director of food services for New Bedford Public Schools, was quoted as saying that hummus and black bean salads have been tough sells in elementary cafeterias. [It would be a tough sell anywhere! Push it on kids who are finicky anyway! ]
Ms. Thornton just put her finger on the problem. The government is trying to impose a new diet that children are not accustomed to. It’s not reasonable to expect them to either eat what the government deems healthy or go hungry. Many will opt to go hungry, and that’s the government’s fault.
A fitting punishment would be for the Congress to pass a law stating that any meal served in the White House MUST conform to the same rules that Mooch is imposing on our school children. And Congress should withhold money if they don’t enforce that law. Let Mooch eat black beans instead of Wagyu beef and Maine Lobster. (Personally, I love hummus, but it probably is too garlicky for most kids’ tastes.)
Worst part of this is that We the People are buying those (probably locally sourced, expensive, organic) fruits and vegetables that the kids are throwing in the trash. I did everything when I was a kid to not eat broccoli or Brussels sprouts. If I had to stuff my mouth with them and then make a fake trip to the bathroom to spit them in the toilet, I did it! I’d have fed them to the dog, but even he wouldn’t eat them and he’d eat anything!
What a waste. So the kids do go hungry because they won’t knuckle under to Mooch’s DICTATORSHIP. What do her kids eat, I wonder? What DO they have on the menu at Sidwell? http://www.sidwell.edu/documents/menus/us_menu_9-24-12.pdf
Hmm. While there are some locally sourced, organic bean specialties, there are also:
pepperoni flatbread pizza
breaded eggplant and marinara sauce
BBQ chicken sliders
mac ‘n cheese!
waffles, eggs, and turkey sausage
beef hot dogs!
bacon and hash browns!
chicken fingers! (weren’t these specifically banned for public school kids?)
Oh, look! They CELEBRATE COLUMBUS DAY! HOW RACIST!!!
all natural BURGERS!
While there’s also a lot of foo-foo stuff that sounds like it’s from Whole Foods (on steroids), it does seem to lean towards the “healthy” crap Mooch pushes. But look how yummy they make it all sound? I doubt public school kids are getting portobello mushroom and salmon filets. (But then again, maybe they are. Mooch is all for redistribution so it wouldn’t surprise me in the least to find that she’s decided it’s “not fair” for poor kids to miss out on Wagyu beef. Maybe next term, she’ll order up Wagyu for all the kids on free school lunches.)
Great minds! I just checked Drudge and he has this story: http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/revolt-over-school-lunches_653039.html
which also listed what the Sidwell Friends are eating today. I looked at the whole week’s menu, but I didn’t know about this Weekly Standard story until just now.
Ha! The Left is becoming more of a joke everyday! Seventy two percent – 72%- as FAKE as he is! Where has all the love gone? Thanks Andrea, it is our laugh for the day!
Obama’s phantom presence
Exclusive: Andrea Shea King discovers president’s ‘followers’ are fake
September 24 Snip
Nearly two-thirds of Obama’s Twitter followers are either fake or inactive.
How do we know that? By using an app developed by Status People. It’s called “Fakers App,” and more than 150,000 people have already used it to find out what their follower quality is.
So I ran a test on Obama’s Twitter handle, @BarackObama. The result? Of his 20,014,187 followers, 32 percent are fake, 40 percent are inactive and only 28 percent are good.
So who’s really reading Obama’s tweets? His base? His campaign war room worker bees?
always wondered about that. GReat Work Bridgett. 28% hmm.
If anyone listened to Obama’s speech to the UN, – and I did tune in and out – I heard him say this sentence…and Christians should take note because I believe it meant that the future does not belong to practicing Christians. I will look for the context. He brought up the stupid film several times (you can tell they haven’t even seen it). There was another gem that I am trying to recall.
“The future must not be determined by those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
Here is part of the transcript (from breitbart)
“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”
Ya really can’t disagree with all of that…but I don’t think it’s sincere. Not the second part anyway….tell me, why didn’t the US delegates walk out on Ahmadinejad’s speech or why doesn’t the President condemn it directly????? Yeah, cuz he’s full of $#!*
The future must not belong to those who love the prophet of Islam. There. I’ve said it. Islam is FUNDAMENTALLY INCOMPATIBLE with our way of life. With FREEDOM. With WOMEN’S RIGHTS. With free speech and equal treatment under the law.
Even as he speaks, that disgusting display of the crucifix in urine is at a museum in NYC. Why didn’t he specifically address that insult to Christians? Why, as a Christian, does he speak TO Muslims as if he’s one of them? His correct focus should be, first, the desecration of Christian churches and icons. Why does he have it backwards? They didn’t walk out because they were ordered to stay. I’m sure of it.
Gateway Pundit has this: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/09/obama-the-future-does-not-belong-to-those-who-slander-the-prophet-of-islam-video/ He has video, too.
“The future must not belong to those who target Coptic Christians in Egypt – it must be claimed by those in Tahrir Square who chanted “Muslims, Christians, we are one.” The future must not belong to those who bully women – it must be shaped by girls who go to school, and those who stand for a world where our daughters can live their dreams just like our sons. The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country’s resources – it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs; workers and business owners who seek a broader prosperity for all people. Those are the men and women that America stands with; theirs is the vision we will support.
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied. Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims. It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” Together, we must work towards a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not defined by them. That is what America embodies, and that is the vision we will support.”
Ok, So he mentioned Copts first. Islam doesn’t just “bully” women; it oppresses them. Left unsaid about his allowing girls to go to school and “live their dreams” is that all that, he thinks, is compatible with the oppression women face under Sharia. They can go to the schools that the imams allow them to attend and they can “live their dreams” so long as their the acceptable dreams the imams allow them to have. Notice how he talks about a “country’s” resources. He’s among the “corrupt few” who want to “steal” the resources of all U.S. citizens in order to pool them for redistribution. His “broader prosperity for all” is COMMUNISM. That’s what he wants.
Here’s the real reason Barry won’t meet with world leaders this week: http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/09/kt-mcfarland-obama-blocked-mitt-romney-from-meeting-with-world-leaders-at-un-video/
Because protocol is that if they meet Barry, they should meet Mitt. He doesn’t WANT them to meet Mitt, so he’s dissing them all. “the administration doesn’t want to get Romney in those pictures with world leaders because he’ll look presidential.”
Here’s more from Breitbart (my comments in brackets and italics):
“[I]t will not be enough to put more guards in front of an Embassy;
[but it would have helped Stevens and the others who died, especially if the guards had bullets and permission to fire!]
“or to put out statements of regret, and wait for the outrage to pass. If we are serious about those ideals, we must speak honestly about the deeper causes of this crisis….Today, we must affirm that our future will be determined by people like Chris Stevens, and not by his killers. Today, we must declare that this violence and intolerance has no place among our United Nations.” …
“In every country, there are those who find different religious beliefs threatening.
[Make no mistake; he’s talking about Christians in the U.S.]
“In every culture, those who love freedom for themselves must ask themselves how much they’re willing to tolerate freedom for others.
[Again, at first hearing, this sounds good; but what he’s saying is that those who love freedom (Americans) MUST ask themselves what’re the limits of “freedom” that they CAN “tolerate” for others (like the filmmakers). In other words, should Americans decide that to avoid this “violence” we should restrict SOME free speech to appease (“tolerate”) Islam?]
“And that is what we saw play out in the last two weeks, where a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world.
[This is a non sequitur. It doesn’t match what he said before. He doesn’t think the attackers of the consulate “find different religious beliefs threatening.” Nor does he think Muslims “love freedom for themselves.” He can’t think that because they HAVE NO freedom. In this speech, he’s pretending to be on the side of the U.S., when he’s really making it clear that he’s on the side of the Muslims. He’s saying that their “outrage” is justified, that the video CAUSED the “outrage”, and that the U.S. needs to reconsider the limits on the right of free speech, and suppress “crude and disgusting” videos. And, btw, his own administration admitted that the violence was caused by a preplanned terrorist attack, not any video. So there he is, lying about the cause of the “violence”. In addition, there WAS NO PROTEST OF ANYTHING IN BENGHAZI. So all of THAT violence, Chris Stevens’s death, was caused by Islamic jihadist HATRED of America and Christians in general, NO MATTER WHAT WE DO.]
“Now, I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity. It is an insult not only to Muslims, but to America as well.”
Now all those are Barry’s words (and mine). Joel Pollak wrote,
“Obama added that the U.S. could not “ban” the video, because the “Constitution protects the right to practice free speech.” He did not mention that his administration’s policy is, in fact, that such speech can be restricted, and that the U.S. had co-sponsored a resolution with Egypt at the UN Human Rights Council in 2009 that would allow Islamist governments to ban such videos and claim they had the full support of the United States.”
His full speech is there, if you can stomach it.
My dad would say, “He talks out of both sides of his mouth.” And he does.
In context of this big whoop-de-doo at the UN, that “film” was probably created to incite the topic, just for this event. They’ve been trying to push for these universal international laws against insulting Islam for a long time. They probably thought that it would be more timely if there were riots all over the world, based upon a fake film that insulted Islam. Only it backfired on Barry, big time. He can hardly argue for more restrictions on our free speech after the murders of our citizens, after another 9/11 terror attack ON HIS WATCH, and after he’s botched this crisis so badly and LIED so baldly.
He can’t institute anything like what the Muslims want, anyway. It’s illegal no matter what he tries to do. He CANNOT sign away our Constitutional rights.
So disgusting…”the future doesn’t belong to those who slander the prophet of islam” – so it belongs to those who do not slander (who don’t say anything negative or critical and adhere to the mandates of) the prophet of islam.
“but to be credible, those who condemn that slander”
those who the future does belong to (the ones that don’t criticize mohammed and who do recognize him as the most recent prophet of God) must condemn desecrating images of Jesus and denying the holocaust.
let me say it again:
the future belongs to muslims, but you gotta tone down desecrating Jesus and denying the Holocaust or I won’t be able to get that U.N. Resolution adopted by the Senate which makes it illegal to slander Mohammed and “incite sufi muslims and shiite pilgrims,” which is what I really want.
You got it, Hayden. But of course the lamestream made it sound as if he said the exact opposite.
Obama is flat out saying that (1) the U.S. government didn’t create that film, (2) so the U.S. society (people) did create it or their system allowed it to be created, and (3) the future doesn’t belong to people who would slander the prophet and so (4) the future does NOT belong to the people of the USA because of their fundamental society that allows it to happen and it belongs instead to Muslims or at least non-Muslims who SUBMIT (islam) to Muslims and recognize that to live they must accept dhimmitude.
Newt Gingrich went to MO yesterday in support of Todd Akin against the Claire Witch. He said,
“I would simply say to anybody who has any confusion – Six seconds of Todd Akin Saying something dumb doesn’t offset six years of McCaskill voting destructively… You know she’s going to smear him because a straight up honest fight over her voting record she’s just going to get wiped out.”
Leave it to Newt to cut to the core of the issue: One stupidly chosen word against SIX years of Claire rubberstamping Obama’s fundamental transformation. He should say TWELVE years because that’s how many it will be if she’s reelected. Newt also reminded everybody that if Republicans don’t take the Senate:
Harry Reid will stay majority leader and
DemoncRATS will choose the next Supreme Court Justice.
THAT, will seal our fates.
Because not one honest politician or judge will stand up and acuuse obama of what he is actually doing
Obamas overthrow of the western world almost complete
Not just about the overthrow of Jordan but also of Saudi Arabia
At least we have got 1000 years of coal, oh no
Obama has already outlawed coal
Now you can guess why DHS has bought 300 million ammo rounds.
This is real
President Obama: The Future Must Not Belong to Those Who Slander the Prophet of Islam
Joe Schoffstall’s picture
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 – 11:23am
President Barack Obama addressed the United Nations General Assembly this morning and claimed the future must not belong to those who target Coptic Christians in Egypt, those who bully women, the corrupt few who steal a country’s resources, and those who slander the prophet of Islam.
The future must not belong to those who target Coptic Christians in Egypt – it must be claimed by those in Tahrir Square who chanted “Muslims, Christians, we are one.” The future must not belong to those who bully women – it must be shaped by girls who go to school, and those who stand for a world where our daughters can live their dreams just like our sons. The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country’s resources – it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs; workers and business owners who seek a broader prosperity for all people. Those are the men and women that America stands with; theirs is the vision we will support.
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied. Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims. It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” Together, we must work towards a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not defined by them. That is what America embodies, and that is the vision we will support.
I support FREESPEECH and I will take my chances with those who might slander something I like.
The dictator again shows his five stripes of blood.
his speech, total socialist’s sophistry and then he rounds it off using the words of Gandhi: I want to puke. In case anyone hasn’t taken notice, Obamas’ plan is working….staged unrest, staged people who took to the streets afterwards, yet nobody seemed at all bothered by this showing, then some calm worldy teleprompted socialist,peace and harmony crap at the UN.
I was going to say Notice what obama says in his early interviews about his book, in the sweet intellectual sounding dialoque ,as he laughs and says sometimes his mother called him GANDHI! His brother Mark is doing the same thing via the Chinese Confucious/Gandhi facade…..People better wake up. Mark and Obama were trained for this, how long ago, I don’t know, but it’s obvious. They, with the Media and foolish bogus books are shaping someone’s vision and path. THe words/speeches,interviews are becoming so shallow it’s SAD to see that it takes so little now to influence a people, people that once used to think for themselves, have spirit, and love one another simply because the atmosphere allowed it, no demand needed. The atmosphere is so spoiled by political talking points and hate for one another, I think it’s poisoning peoples brains…now all it takes to influence people is O’s childish jibberish. Wait , I’ve turned to jibberish myself!
Sound familiar? Just read how similar Chavez’s campaign in Venezuela is to what’s happening here, with Barry.
‘Appalled’ school cafeteria employee: ‘Seconds’ banned; extra food thrown away
By Ben Velderman
“On issues related to the military and foreign policy, Obama’s worse than Bush, “in the sense that he’s more aggressive, more illegal worldwide,” Nader told POLITICO, going so far as to call Obama a “war criminal.”
He’s gone beyond George W. Bush in drones, for example. He thinks the world is his plate, that national sovereignties mean nothing, drones can go anywhere. They can kill anybody that he suspects and every Tuesday he makes the call on who lives and who dies, supposed suspects in places like Yemen and Pakistan and Afghanistan, and that is a war crime and he ought to be held to account.”
Nader called Obama “below average because he raised expectation levels. What expectation level did George W. Bush raise?… He’s below average because he’s above average in his intellect and his knowledge of legality, which is violating with abandon.”
“I don’t know whether George W. Bush ever read the Constitution,” said Nader. “This man taught the Constitution, and this is what we got.””
He does go on, though, to illogically state that Barry is the lesser of two evils, when compared to Romney.
FYI Someone hijacked my Yahoo address and was sending out spam with it yesterday, so I reported it to Yahoo. Now today, I can’t get into my email and I have to give them my phone number to verify myself! I don’t know if my phone number was originally listed as it has been years. But this is what they are now doing. It appears I have no way around this. Another article says it will do this if signing in with another unrecognized computer. Well, I have been using this computer, but my highjacker hasn’t.
Yahoo! Improves Account Security With Second Sign-in Verification – Snip
More and more Internet companies are beginning to implement 2-step verification processes to counter the ever increasing attacks on customer accounts. Yahoo! is the latest company to upgrade the account security with a 2-step verification option.
The second sign-in verification feature works slightly different from Google’s 2-step verification login. Yahoo! will only ask the user to verify the account in a second step if the company suspects that the account may have been hijacked. It is likely that this is an automated process that checks IP addresses, countries of origins, and maybe even header data and sign-in times.
A confirm your identity:answer security question prompt is displayed after sign-in in this case. It basically blocks the signing in by asking the user to verify the account ownership either by entering the answer to the selected security question or by entering a security code send to a verified mobile phone.
Yahoo will roll out the feature to all of its worldwide audience by March 2012. (via Techdows and Yahoo Developer Network).
Bridgette, yes Yahoo is frustrating. I canceled my yahoo about 2mos ago. It took about 7 tries to do it. I was pretty sure they didn’t want me to deactivate, that I would get mad and give up. I stayed the course with a few shouted words..good riddance. Hope yours works out ok.
Excellent comparison of Obama then and now.
Obama vs. Obama
Thomas Sowell – Guest Columnist
September 25, 2012
Most of what Barack Obama says sounds very persuasive if you don’t know the facts — and often sounds like sheer nonsense if you do.
Many voters will be comparing Mitt Romney with Barack Obama between now and election day. But what might be even more revealing would be comparing Obama with Obama. There is a big contrast between Obama based on his rhetoric (“Obama 1”) and Obama based on his record (“Obama 2”).
Stop rigging the election and the news! They need to call them out by name not just by network!
Limbaugh, Levin, Ingraham say media rigs coverage for Obama
September 25, 2012 | 11:50 am
More than 20 conservative leaders and media figures including Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, and Mark Levin, on Tuesday accused ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN today of rigging coverage to help reelect President Obama.
“This election year, so much of the broadcast networks, their cable counterparts, and the major establishment print media are out of control with a deliberate and unmistakable leftist agenda. To put it bluntly: you are rigging this election and taking sides in order to pre-determine the outcome,” they said in a letter to the networks that was organized by the conservative media watchdog Media Research Center.
“You have breached the public trust by willfully turning a blind eye to the government’s public policy failures, both domestic and foreign, while openly and shamefully smearing Gov. Mitt Romney,” said the letter signed by MRC President Brent Bozell and the others.
“It is time the American people turn you who are offending off, once and for all. You have betrayed their trust,” they added.
From the scathing letter:
You have breached the public trust by willfully turning a blind eye to the government’s public policy failures, both domestic and foreign, while openly and shamefully smearing Gov. Mitt Romney. You are:
–Painting conservative ideas as extreme, while refusing to report the disastrous consequences of liberal programs enacted since 2008.
–Submerging the truly horrendous economic conditions America is facing and focusing only on minor political issues.
–Characterizing conservatives as cruel budget “slashers” instead of responsible officials trying to avoid a debt catastrophe.
–Focusing on alleged shortcomings in Romney’s business record instead of Obama’s record as the chief executive, whose policies contributed to a failed economy.
–Deliberately covering up embarrassing government failures and scandals, including the Solyndra debacle, Fast & Furious, and national security leaks which have put American lives in jeopardy.
–Pouncing on real and perceived missteps by conservatives, portraying them as bumbling incompetents, while suppressing embarrassing and incendiary remarks made by Vice President Joe Biden to prevent him from becoming a liability.
–Portraying conservative opposition to tax hikes as an impediment to deficit reduction while failing to highlight how liberal tax increase policies will cause massive damage to the economy and cause the deficit to explode.
–“Fact-checking” conservatives in order to discredit their arguments while regularly refusing to “fact-check” liberals who are distorting the truth.
We the undersigned – representing millions of Americans from our respective organizations – are now publicly urging our members to seek out alternative sources of political news in order to make an intelligent, well-informed decision on November 6.
But it’s not their fault that nobody trusts the media. Who’s to blame? FOX News and ANGRY citizens. Yep. That’s right. We don’t distrust the media because they’re corrupt, complicit, lying, obfuscating, progressive toadies. Nope, we distrust them because we’re stupid and angry. Stupid, because we don’t realize how FOX NEWS has started it, by being first to be biased and then MSNBC just HAD TO respond from the left. Far be if from them to realize that We the People are smart enough to tell TRUTH from LIES. The former is more likely to be heard on FOX, the latter on MSNBC. We’re not stupid, after all; but we sure are ANGRY that the media, who enjoy the protection of the First Amendment for the express purpose of giving the public the truth, the WHOLE truth, and NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH, are corrupt, political, and have become the state media for Obama’s communist transformation of our country. http://www.stltoday.com/news/opinion/columns/the-platform/editorial-screaming-at-each-other-won-t-improve-our-democracy/article_7fe732dc-0080-5c65-a3df-cd5f4c8cace5.html
Just a sample: “But given that there are 311 million Americans and the combined prime viewership for cable news is about 5 million, the distrust can’t all be blamed on them.
Republicans have enjoyed great success by making the “lamestream” media a straw man for all of their woes. Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has built a career on it. Here in Missouri, U.S. Senate candidate Todd Akin even blamed the liberal media for his problems when other Republicans called on him to step down from his race against Democrat Claire McCaskill.
Missouri gubernatorial candidate Dave Spence, a Republican, got into the game last week during his debate with Democrat Jay Nixon. Mr. Spence blamed the state’s largest newspapers, including us, for focusing on his negatives, and not his positives. [You can hardly expect to hear the Democratic politicians complain about media bias, given that the bias is ALL in their favor. Duh!] …
The Gallup Poll is disheartening at a time when the media in various forms, through fact-checking, in-depth reporting and thoughtful analysis, are the only recourse for reasoned debate political campaigns hijacked by literally billions of dollars in campaign spending intended to create alternate realities. [Got that? The ONLY recourse for civilized, reason debate is to rely on the LAMESTREAM, BIASED, STATE PROPAGANDA MACHINE! Can there BE ANY HOPE if they REFUSE to examine their own behavior in light of the LEGITIMATE complaints and the indisputable statistics about, for example, pro-Romney versus pro-Obama stories?]
But it’s also a sign of the times: Americans have lost trust in their major national institutions.
“Yes, the numbers have been creeping up,” points out St. Louis University political science professor Ken Warren, “but so have the critical ratings of most of our institutions from the church to Wall Street to our presidents. Americans are very angry today.”
IT’S OUR FAULT, SEE?
Unbelievable still…. not a brain between them.. It’s Flukies cousin?
checked her out Zenway, Now I’ll tell you what some amazing SH… as she says, is she loves the fact that O. is a Black Muslim,in her own vulgar way,as only Madonna can do; I wonder if Indonesia, the largest populaton of Muslims anywhere, would be inviting her to their country anytime soon.She’s so stupid, really. Her kind is despised, remember last year Indonesia turned Lady Gaga, her protoge’, away even after she was booked to play there. Seems Muslims have scruples, unlike Madonna.Of course maybe that’s why she made these statements, hoping to win Indonesia’s admiration?

Was Obama’s Illegal War in Libya A Trial Run to Attack Israel?
September 25, 2012
Hey, Obama Lovers, now that our Ambassador is dead, our Benghazi consulate is a smoldering ruin, and its top secret documents have been snatched by Al Qaeda, do you still think your hero’s Libyan war is a smashing success?
Because I sure do. Not from America’s point of view, of course; it’s a nightmare for our national security.
But from the perspective of Obama’s biggest donor, the convicted felon and renowned Israel-hater George Soros, the Libyan War is a triumph. Why? Because Obama waged it illegally and without the consent of Congress. And he did it in the name of the political philosophy that Soros bought and paid for: Responsibility to Protect, or, as it’s so zippily dubbed by our global elites, R2P.
FREEDOM….well said ROMNEY …O & Biden still pushing them CHAINS ..

Resigned Judy v. Obama 12-5276 Receives No “Grant” From SCOTUS
One has to wonder why the Lefties – the radicals – like the Foggies and Cons are so totally obsessed with what Orly does. They send their representatives to her court rooms to monitor and raise havoc. Then they come back to report to the idiots that follow their diatribe. Next they have to open multiple fake blogs to report on Orly’s antics” to which they disagree. They disparage Orly’s speech, her actions, the way she dresses, walks and talks. Their is nothing about her that is off limits. Yet I wonder, why? Why do they have multiple blogs dedicated to discussing her lawsuits… if in fact, she wasn’t a threat to them and Obama? Anyone? Who pays them to continue their ridicule and to help them provide “expert” analysis to the opposing lawyers.
Those people are slime and of the lowest common denominator. Never do they think for themselves…they are so involved in their blinded skewed version – that they never question why their leader won’t provide his boni fides. They never question why there have to be multiple lawsuits trying to get to the truth. They can accept fraudulent documents as evidence. They can accept a book of lies to base their acceptance of their guy. I can’t wait to see these rats defeated come November. Then I will read with glee their blogs to watch their ballistic reactions when their messiah takes a beating like the democrats did in 2010.

‘Savage’ Jihad Ad Debuts in New York City Subway
September 26, 2012
(Reuters) – An inflammatory ad equating Islamic jihad with savagery was posted Monday in 10 New York City subway stations, even as much of the Muslim world was still seething over a California-made movie ridiculing the Prophet Mohammad.
“In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man,” the ad reads. “Support Israel/Defeat Jihad.”
Reuters,a Leftist run news organization, shows their colors in one paragraph – what words would they use to describe the barbarians who behead people? Savages seems to fit them quite appropriately! Doesn’t Reuters, like Obama, know the film had nothing to do with attacks? Pamela, Atlas Shrugs, won her court case and the ad is in the subways today. Perfect day for it to begin on Yom Kippur known as Day of Atonement, the holiest day of the year for the Jewish people. This is also the day that the short, bloviating Ahmadinejad, who denies the Holocaust, and regularly tells the Jews that Iran will destroy their country took to the stage at the UN.
Ahmadinejad calls 9/11 “tragic,” slams Israel
September 26, 2012 Snips
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad delivered a rambling but relatively toned-down speech at the United Nations Wednesday in which he called the Sept. 11 terror attacks “tragic” but also said that humanity’s lives would be “beautiful and pleasant” had U.S. forces not thrown Osama bin Laden’s corpse into the sea.
Ahmadinejad, who in 2010 called the 9/11 attacks “a big lie,” criticized the United States for “killing and throwing the culprit into the sea without trial or without informing the world and the people of America.” He told the annual gathering of the U.N. General Assembly that the U.S. should have formed “an independent fact-finding team” to “make the general public aware of the truth behind the incident.”
The U.S. delegation did not attend Ahmadinejad’s speech, delivered amid tensions over Iran’s nuclear program, which Tehran insists is for peaceful purposes and the United States, Israel and Western nations claim is a cover for building a weapon.
In an interview broadcast on “CBS This Morning” Wednesday, Ahmadinejad walked back from one of his previous inflammatory comments, that Israel should be “wiped off” the map.
“We have never threatened them,” Ahmadinejad told CBS News.
On Syria, Ahmadinejad denied the recent public admission by Major Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard, that Iranian forces are training 50,000 soldiers for President Bashar Assad’s regime. [Syria]
Ahmadinejad pushes new world order
‘Everyone is aware the nuclear issue is the imposition of the will of the U.S.’
NEW YORK (AP) — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday that a new world order needs to emerge, away from years of what he called American bullying and domination.
They’ve never threatened Israel? He’s as big of a pathological liar (or practitioner of taqiyya) as Barry.
Rush Limbaugh: Obama is ‘a serial liar’
‘Lies just flow out of his mouth as naturally as a baby’s cries’
September 26 Snips
PALM BEACH, Fla. – Rush Limbaugh, the top-rated radio host in America, is now calling President Obama “a serial liar” who is “delusional” and “pathological” in fabrications being told by his administration.
“Barack Obama is a serial liar, and I think it’s time to call him out on this,” Limbaugh said Wednesday afternoon. His analysis began with the Obama administration’s claim the recent onslaught against the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was in response to an anti-Muslim movie on YouTube. Libyan President Mohamed Magarief said the film had “nothing to do” with the attack. “Reaction should have been, if it was genuine, should have been six months earlier. So it was postponed until the 11th of September,” Magarief told NBC News. “They chose this date, 11th of September to carry a certain message.”
Limbaugh said, “They have lied to us for a week about this video. Obama went to the U.N. yesterday and made most of his speech or quite a large part of his speech about this video, which even now, nobody has ever seen. All they’re doing is promoting it. All they’re doing is giving others who want to be agitated by it an excuse to be.”
When pondering why Obama and his administration would lie, Limbaugh had a hard time coming up with an explanation. I’m not a liar. I can’t explain them,” he said. “It’s pathological, it’s the same as trying to explain Bill Clinton. These people construct with all of their lies an actual reality they live in. I think they tell the lie so often – it’s the definition of a pathological liar, you believe the lies that you tell. It is a sickness. And this is just the latest illustration of Obama as a serial liar.”
Savage: ‘Spineless’ Obama ‘crawled’ before U.N.
Accuses president of trying to appease ‘Third World gangsters’
September 25 Snips
With his Middle East policy imploding, Barack Obama “crawled” before “anti-American jackals” at the United Nations General Assembly today to apologize for a film that insulted Islam, said talk radio host Michael Savage.
“We have the most spineless, dangerous president in American history,” Savage told his “Savage Nation” listeners.
He expressed disgust for Obama giving deference to an audience that includes “Third World gangsters who sit there in their silk suits enjoying the 25 percent we the American taxpayer pay to keep them in their silk suits and their prostitutes on the Upper East Side.”
Notably, he said, the audience included the “Hitler of our time,”Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has called for Israel’s destruction.
“Obama goes before the U.N. like a child and talks about a video? Uses the video to cover for his foreign policy disaster?”
This is a must read.
Court Reveals Iranian Operatives In Charge Of Obama’s Iran Policy Since 2009
September 26, 2012 Snip
A ruling handed down on September 13th by the D.C. District Federal Court has finally made clear what many have known for years–that the Obama Administration’s Iran policy was initiated and advanced by a group with illicit, hidden ties to the Iranian Regime and financed by the U.S./Israel- hating George Soros.
In 2009, Barack Obama turned over virtually all responsibility and authority for foreign policy negotiations with Iran to Trita Parsi and his National Iranian American Council (NIAC). Founded by Parsi in 2003, the Washington-based NIAC is a powerful lobbying group that is “…widely considered the de facto lobby for the Iranian Regime in America.”
Like too many organizations that claim to represent the best interests of the nation of Iran and Iranian-Americans, the NIAC is tightly connected with and known to be funded at least in part by the George Soros empire.
The policy decisions toward Iran for the United States and the security of the American people was handed over to representatives of the Iranian government! Our foreign policy is decided in accordance with the dictates of the Iranian mullahs! More reason for Hussein to be arrested now as an enemy of the U.S. How much more treasonous could he be?
“Could voters be pleased upon finding the president had placed America’s safety from possible nuclear attack in the hands of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?”

It is so obvious really
And who knew all along?
Both of them?
I suspected as much. You know how I know? The rule: If Barry’s lips are moving, he’s LYING. Anything that they EXPLICITLY DENY, is likely to be TRUTH. So, when he tells the UN that the U.S. “government” had NOTHING to do with that video, then the truth just might be that it did have something to do with it. I used the phrase black ops and it still stands. They wanted an lever to use to nudge Americans toward accepting SOME restrictions on speech in order to keep “order”. As he said in his speech yesterday, where he said those who love freedom for themselves must think about how much they might need to limit others’ speech (or how much they’ll “tolerate” from certain others). I parsed it here: https://wtpotus.wordpress.com/2012/09/23/the-new-obama-doctrine-lies-damnable-lies/comment-page-2/#comment-93493
Now to read that our government policies regarding Iran are being done and were farmed out to an Iranian group – this makes so much sense. When I said, they doth protest to much, this is probably exactly what they didn’t want known about that film. Yet they were bringing attention to it repeatedly. Still it doesn’t answer questions about the attack.
There were letters sent to Rice, Hillary, etc. asking for clarification because of the NY Times having more information than they were given by Hillary in a closed door official meeting. With all of Congress gone until after the election, how will they stay on the Obama administration to get information? The word cover-up has been used multiple times on FOX, and wouldn’t this be great if this turned out to be the nail in the Progressive’s coffin.
anyone read Lame Cherry’s take on this situation? It’s quite interesting.
I doubt anyone has looked into why rebels needed a central bank in 2011.I just happened on this. Has anyone else? This (hopefully I posted the right one) video is hard to follow but try hard. I checked this out. The video says it was made in 2011,so I checked. This is just the first thing I came to on the subject. Now those poor, poor rebels got themselves a central bank, just like that. Hmm. And in Benghazi too. Hmm…. and all those nice shiny new weapons. What’s going on ???? Now read this reported in 2011.
