Near the 2012 election, and after bragging about killing bin Laden based on intelligence gained by water boarding (a tactic he campaigned against), Obama and his O-bots lied to us about Benghazi.
O-bots are the many disciples in his administration and the media who, like robots, do Obama's bidding when it's asked for or implied. O-bots knowingly put out the false narrative blaming the 9/11 attacks on a "spontaneous reaction" to an obscure You Tube video. Either the Benghazi Film Critics' Society is the most brutal in the world, or the release of the amateur video just happened to coincide with "Bring Your Rocket-Propelled Grenade Launcher to Work Day." It was a lie from the get-go.
Hillary Clinton's State Department colluded with other agencies - and probably Obama's campaign team in Chicago - to rewrite the post-Benghazi talking points eleven times and purge them of anything that reflected negatively on the President. Her redacting the facts from the administration's narrative in order to protect her meal ticket, the President of the United States, rings nostalgic. It's as if she is First Lady again. more >>
Finally, it's over. The trial of one of the most repulsive and repugnant murderers in history is finally over. The jury has rendered its opinion and the defendant now will spend the rest of his life behind bars.
Although the story broke in March of 2011 when a grand jury indicted him, few Americans fully know the story of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, of the Women's Medical Society, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This was a doctor who specialized in late term abortions. The Grand Jury report stated:
This case is about a doctor who killed babies and endangered women. What we mean is that he regularly and illegally delivered live, viable, babies in the third trimester of pregnancy – and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors. The medical practice by which he carried out this business was a filthy fraud in which he overdosed his patients with dangerous drugs, spread venereal disease among them with infected instruments, perforated their wombs and bowels – and, on at least two occasions, caused their deaths. more >>
An estimated 83 percent, or 9.2 million, of the 11.1 million people living in the United States illegally are Christians from Latin America and the Caribbean, according to a recent study by the Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion & Public Life.
The study highlights this and other findings in an examination of recent trends in the geographic origins and religious affiliation of immigrants to the United States.
It also reveals that the share of Christians among undocumented immigrants is slightly higher than the percentage of Christians in the U.S. population as a whole. As of 2010, Christians were estimated to make up just under 80 percent of U.S. residents of all ages. more >>
With three full-blown scandals currently surrounding the Obama administration, there are too many "-gates" to name just one. There is the cover-up of the fatal Benghazi terrorist attack, the IRS targeting conservatives, and the Justice Department spying on members of the press. The level of corruption is so high right now; it is like Saul Alinsky is running the White House.
Alinsky, the radical activist who wrote Rules for Radicals, which he dedicated to Satan, taught the radical left to use dishonest tactics in order to achieve their agenda – "by any means necessary." He advocated lying and harassing those with opposing viewpoints. Both Obama and Hillary Clinton were deeply influenced by Alinsky. Alinsky biographer Sanford Howitt has said Alinsky influenced Obama's 2008 election campaign, and that Obama followed in his footsteps as a community organizer. Alinsky's son David wrote in an article that appeared in the Boston Globe, "Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father's model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we his approach his 100th birthday." Obama revealed a few years ago that his years training as a community organizer at Alinsky's Industrial Areas Foundation, "gave him the best education of his life." He has quoted Alinsky in speeches.
Four Americans died during the Benghazi attacks, and it is now coming out that the White House knew the embassy needed more security, and knew terrorists were targeting it, but did nothing. Three whistleblowers have come forward, in spite of being threatened with demotions, to tell Congress that the administration knew at the time of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice's public comments that the Benghazi terrorist attack was connected to terrorists, and they in fact deleted out those references in her talking points, revising them 12 times. One of the whistleblowers, Gregory Hicks, who was the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya during 2012, is a Democrat, not exactly someone who has anything to gain for partisan reasons. more >>
Americans are the biggest losers from the slew of scandals now rocking the White House, but who are the biggest winners? Iran, North Korea, Syria, China, and Russia. If US foreign policy seemed spineless and muddled in confronting bad actors before the Benghazi-IRS-AP scandals surfaced, the US just became that much more irrelevant to its archrivals and antagonists on the world stage.
Unfortunately, the trio of scandals comes at an extremely dangerous time. The ever-unpredictable North Korea just fired three short-range guided missiles. Much more ominously, Russia is reverting to a Cold War mindset in ways far more serious than the recent arrest of alleged CIA operative Ryan Fogle. Russia is doubling-down on its strategy of backing its Syrian client, and the stakes couldn't be higher.
Russia recently sold advanced Yakhont anti-ship cruise missiles to Syrian President Bashar Assad. These missiles, outfitted with an advanced guidance system, effectively empower Syria to thwart any attempt by international forces to help Syrian rebels with a naval embargo or no fly zone. Upping the ante even more, Russia sent at least a dozen warships to its Tartus naval base in Syria, according to a Wall Street Journal report last Thursday. Russia has also declared its intention to complete its sale of the S-300 advanced anti-aircraft missile system to Syria. The S-300 is a state-of-the-art system that can intercept fighter jets and cruise missiles at a range of about 124 miles and would therefore – if actually delivered to Assad – represent a game-changer that disturbs the current military balance of power in the Middle East. That is undoubtedly a red line for Israel, and Israel takes its red lines seriously, as it has shown with airstrikes on Syrian targets to prevent the transfer of sophisticated weapons to Hezbollah. more >>
Why do Conservatives insist on getting in their own way? They couldn't have asked for a better week, one White House scandal following another like so many tumbling dominos. Yet rather than simply sit back and watch the administration self-destruct, Tea Party groups are planning to rally in front of IRS buildings on Tuesday in cities across the country. Demonstrations that can interrupt the current news cycle, which is almost too good to be true! Why do conservatives want to lose so often?
The Scandal-Palooza of the past week doesn't just have legs; it has momentum. Like Usain Bolt, it's fast and seemingly unstoppable. Just when you think it's over, it comes back even stronger. It's the White House seizing AP phone records so as to control the news cycle after an al-Qaeda terror plot was foiled in Yemen. It's the IRS withholding tax exempt status for Tea Party, conservative, and pro-Constitution groups, and asking the most invasive and personal questions. It's Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius raising money for Enroll America, a private nonprofit organization formed for the purpose of encouraging Americans to sign up for insurance this fall, while CEOs and bigwigs of corporations are subjected to her Obamacare mandates. And, of course, Benghazi…
(As Seton Motley of Less Government reminded me on my radio show, this list doesn't include Operation Fast and Furious and the murder of Brian Terry or the EPA FOIA request scandal. Add them.) more >>
