Heroes like Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty must not be forgotten, regardless of the “mainstream” media’s politically motivated Benghazi blackout. Tyrone’s father Charles Woods continues to speak eloquently:
Those responsible for the debacle need to be held accountable, beginning on November 6.
Just in case there is anyone on earth gullible enough to believe the Obama Regime’s claims that the Apologizer in Chief didn’t know from the beginning what was going on in Benghazi, a little inside baseball, compliments of a caller to El Rushbo whose account rings true:
“I wanted to speak to the question of when the president knew and why Secretary Panetta refused to support the CIA annex request either to move to the consulate or to reinforce. Within a few minutes of the consulate being under attack — I’m a retired lieutenant colonel special operations planner for 15 years — the personal security detail for the ambassador notified the communications room in Tripoli who then, on the top secret side, sent a message to the White House Situation Room that the ambassador was in peril, okay? And they did that by code word and it would have been within minutes of the attack commencing. …
“Certain things go right to the person that’s standing next to the president, both military and civilian leadership. So he would have known within minutes or it’s supposed to be informed within minutes because an ambassador is a four-star equivalent, very high, very important person, you know, represents the president and essentially is the president’s — you know, is the surrogate of the president in that country. So the White House cannot deny that the president knew immediately. …
“On the top secret side, a flash traffic message from the embassy Tripoli to the White House Situation Room, it’s like an IM. I mean, it’s immediately responded to. You have to acknowledge receipt of it. Okay? So it’s immediate. It gets to the person, the watch officer sitting there, boom, flashes on his screen, he has to acknowledge receipt. And then there’s a protocol for who he then sends it to. He physically turns to someone, the senior guy on watch, “This is a critical element of information. POTUS needs to hear this,” and that’s what would have happened.
“So no one in the White House can deny that — well, they can deny it, but the fact is the protocol says someone marched their happy little ass up to the senior guy standing next to POTUS and said, “Sir, ambassador in Libya is in peril.” And if he was missing, that is even a higher precedence. And then the chain would have also gone out automatically to the geographic combatant commander, AFRICOM, and he would have then turned to his special operations commander and said, “I want the In-Extremis Force, you know, strip ready in five minutes.” And evidently they were strip ready in Sigonella and they would have the assets to penetrate the airspace, you know, an MC-130 papa, which is a C-130 specially equipped with electronic countermeasures. They didn’t need permission to enter Libyan airspace, okay?
“I’m giving you a lot of Inside Baseball stuff, and maybe putting myself in a little peril by doing it, but the In-Extremis Force, they would have been chomping at the bit to do this. It was turned down, POTUS, at his five p.m. Eastern time meeting with the principals, that’s when he put the kibosh on everything. It was a conscious act. It has to be because, you know, the In-Extremis Force is required to be prepared to do In-Extremis non-combatant evacuation operations for its geographic responsibility, the entire continent of Africa. So there’s always somebody ready to go, and the aircraft are always prepared to go.”
The bottom line: Barack Hussein Obama has American blood on his hands.
Your enemy’s enemy is not necessarily your friend. The Islamic radicals Obama is apparently covertly arming against Syria’s Baby Assad are one example. Some of Vladimir Putin’s domestic opposition is another:
Activists from the Ukrainian feminist group Femen cut down a cross in Kiev to show support for members of the Russian punk bank Pussy Riot, who are on trial in Moscow. The cross is a memorial erected to the memory of victims of repression during the regime of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin. Picture: EPA/SERGEY DOLZHENKO
Just when you thought animal rights kooks could not possibly push their moonbattery any further into absurdity:
An Irvine resident is requesting that the city install a sign to memorialize the hundreds of fish killed in a traffic crash in early October as they were being taken to Irvine Ranch Market.
In the letter, Dina Kourda, on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, asks the city’s street maintenance superintendent to place the sign at the site of the crash on Walnut and Yale avenues.
The sign would read, “In memory of hundreds of fish who suffered and died at this spot,” to remind tractor-trailer drivers of their responsibility to the animals who are “hauled to their deaths every day,” according to the letter provided by PETA.
Once again moonbats tug at our heartstrings. From the letter:
“Research tells us that fish use tools, tell time, sing, and have impressive long-term memories and complex social structures, yet fish used for food are routinely crushed, impaled, cut open, and gutted, all while still conscious. Sparing them from being tossed from a speeding truck and slowly dying from injuries and suffocation seems the least that we can do.”
Maybe consciousness can be raised even further if one of these tool-using fish gets on a laptop and writes a book entitled, Bury My Heart at Walnut and Yale Avenues.
But why are we calling them fish? I thought they had been renamed sea kittens.
We need a law mandating seatbelts for sea kittens.
“Osama bin Laden” has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama’s presidential re-election campaign.
The “Bin Laden” donations, actually made by WND staff, included a listed occupation of “deceased terror chief” and a stated employer of “al-Qaida.”
“Bin Laden” is currently set up on the official campaign website to contribute more to Obama’s campaign. The name is also registered as a volunteer.
Since the “foreign” contribution was sent, “Bin Laden’s” email address has received several solicitations from Obama’s campaign asking for more donations. …
One $15 donation was made at BarackObama.com using a confirmed Pakistani IP address and proxy server. In other words, as far as the campaign website was concerned, the donation was openly identified electronically as coming from Pakistan.
For address and email, they gave “911 Jihad Way, Abbottabad, CA 91101” and “email@example.com.”
Needless to say, it is illegal for Obama to accept foreign donations. Also needless to say, he couldn’t care less — which is why he has made it so easy for foreigners to donate.
In contrast, the Romney campaign has put safeguards in place to prevent illegal donations. Again we see that being the good guy has certain disadvantages.
All news stories are spun for political advantage. Given that hurricanes go round and round anyway, why should Sandy be any different?
Moonbats have predictably dug up an unhinged preacher, who is granted the spotlight in order to ridicule Christianity and morality:
The Eastern seaboard may have yet to experience the full wrath of Hurricane Sandy, but one right-wing Christian preacher is already pointing the finger at the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
In a wordy and occasionally rambling blog on his website, chaplain John McTernan seems to link Hurricane Sandy (and a number of other recent weather-related trends and natural disasters) on LGBT people and President Barack Obama’s recent backing of marriage equality.
As Hurricane Sandy blasts the eastern seaboard just over a week before Election Day, a number of conspiracy theorists have decided President Barack Obama engineered the mega-storm to secure his re-election.
Given that the Democrat Party at its most fundamental level is about stealing money from some on behalf of others, what kind of moral character would be needed to earn the title of Democrat of the Year? Colorado’s Estelle Carson demonstrates:
The woman named “Democrat of The Year” this year by the Jefferson County Democratic Party has been convicted of felony theft by a Jefferson County jury for stealing from a developmentally disabled 71-year-old woman. …
On Thursday, a jury convicted 66-year-old Estelle Carson of felony identify theft and felony theft from an at risk adult for stealing checks from the woman and using them to pay her own cable, cell phone and internet bills.
The victim is partially blind, developmentally disabled, has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. She is on a fixed income of $596 per month according to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office.
Nearly as bothersome as the theft itself … is the fact the Jefferson County Democratic Party was made aware of the ongoing criminal investigation and honored Carson anyway.
Their excuse is that at the time Carson had been accused but not yet convicted — even though she had already confessed.
Due to bad press, the title has now been revoked. We’ll seen if Barack Hussein’s farcical Peace Prize follows.
President Bush smiled when he learned this week that economic growth during the third quarter reached a surprising 2.7 percent, almost twice the previous rate. But his smile shouldn’t be broad. … Even the 2.7 figure is half the normal rate of recovery and not enough to bring down unemployment.
The slow pace of the nation’s economic recovery has picked up a bit lately. In the third quarter, the economy grew at an annual rate of 2 percent, beating expectations and the dismal 1.3 percent growth in the second quarter. Over the past year, the growth rate has been 2.3 percent. At that pace, there’s enough momentum to keep unemployment, currently 7.8 percent, from getting much worse…
Having a president of the proper race and political persuasion makes quite a difference. You would hardly know that the current economic numbers are significantly worse than under George H.W. in the days of “It’s the economy, stupid.”
Ward Cleaver was the model father of the 1950s. The model father of the socially engineered 2010s could be Mark Langridge, a homosexual who is being sued for child support by a dysfunctional lesbian “family” he donated sperm to help create:
He was not named on the birth certificates of the two children, and played no role in their upbringing — but the Child Support Agency insists he has to pay £26 a week to support them.
He says he cannot afford the payments, which will add up to £8,000 before both children reach adulthood.
The 47-year-old book-keeper from Essex has been in a relationship with his partner Shaun Keeble, 37, for 17 years. …
Mr Langridge and Mr Keeble met the [lesbian couple that wanted babies] in a gay nightclub in Southend in 1997, and became good friends. …
He said he was surprised when introduced as their father and later advised the children to ask their mother to explain the facts of their birth.
The two couples eventually drifted apart, and apart from occasional letters from the girls Mr Langridge has had no contact with the family since 2004.
Compounding his woes,
He said the biological mother’s former partner continues to live near the former family home and sees the girls at weekends — but is not being chased for child support. …
The only way he can protest against the CSA’s ruling is by taking his case to a judicial review, which could cost in the region of £60,000.
All traditions serve a purpose or they would not survive to become traditions. The purposes of the traditional family are both too numerous and too obvious to list.
The more omnipresent and omnipotent we allow the cancer in Washington to become, the more crucial it is to have friends there — as greater Chicago just learned:
Cook County hit a $100 million jackpot over the weekend.
In a little noticed but crucial decision announced Friday night [when our rulers do things they don't want reported], the federal government signed off on a request by county board President Toni Preckwinkle to enroll 114,000 low-income people a year early in the Medicaid program.
For the county, the decision is worth as much as $100 million a year, since its network of hospitals and health clinics already is serving most of the patients free of charge. The tab now will be picked up by federal taxpayers under a provision of Obamacare, rather than by Cook County taxpayers alone.
That is, ObamaCare will be used to transfer $100 million per year from taxpayers nationwide to Chicago, the infamously corrupt political cesspool that spawned Obama.
