Well isn’t it amazing the altruisms versus real life issues we find in politics – so much in fact that early on in this nation’s prehistory there were so much studied, entire epochs giving reference over to those who would be in power.
The Age of Enlightenment or simply the Enlightenment is the era in Western philosophy, the includes critical, intellectual, and reasoned thought, scientific, and cultural life, centered upon the 18th century, in which reason was advocated as the primary source for legitimacy and authority.
Developing simultaneously in France, Great Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Portugal and the American colonies, the movement was buoyed by Atlantic Revolutions, especially the success of the American Revolution, when breaking free of the British Empire.
As for me whilst I study history with emphasis on the character of humankind, let’s just say that most of us around here are simply derailed by some of the behaviors we see in other people that should know better.
We are of the complete reasoning that this Lois Lerner of the Cincinnati bureau of the IRS, just as with her other colleagues, Douglas Shulman and disgraced former Acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller, and hell Lenny and Squiggy, have been used by the Obama Administration’s well-acknowledged threats of what is referred to as Obama’s culture of intimidation. Interestingly, both said that what the IRS really needs are more people and money to function properly.
With new reports today that the Obama Department of Justice leaked documents intended to smear a whistle blower in the Fast & Furious gun walking scandal. It is now more obvious than ever that this administration has, in the words of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), created a “culture of intimidation” that stretches from the White House down to myriad agencies of the executive branch.
From his language suggesting targeting of enemies to his officials’ attempts to castigate Tea Partiers as economic terrorists, President Obama has presided over an administration that sees his political opponents as unworthy and nasty.
Early in his administration, Obama threatened CEOs of banks, “My administration is the only thing between you and the pitchforks.” The White House’s regular meetings with non-profit hit group Media Matters are often designed to help target conservative media ranging from Fox News to Rush Limbaugh.
Department of Justice Inspector General, showing that former US Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke leaked documents intended to smear a whistle blower in Fast & Furious, is only the latest revelation on misconduct from DOJ. The DOJ has also targeted Fox News reporter James Rosen over leaks from State Department employee Stephen Jin-Woo Kim; according to Megyn Kelly, and two Fox News staffers.
The IRS’ discrimination against conservative non-profit groups has stunned Americans, but conservatives have known for years that the Obama IRS targets conservatives. Yes…but consider this and the ramifications – the POTUS uses his culture of intimidation techniques that therefore creates entire agencies within his purview to do unquestionably unconstitutional issues with you at the helm.
In a close review of Breitbart’s Big Government site, Mr. Ben Shapiro, goes to extraordinary lengths to show how encompassing Obama’s Culture of Intimidation is in reality and he lists the agencies here.
As young men, moreover as boys, most of us are taught this little cliché: It may take a long time, even a lifetime to build trust; however, it only takes seconds or minutes to watch it crumble.
We can question and question and subpoena as many people possible; yet, in the final analysis the buck will always stop on President Obama.
Nothing, so help me Lord, has there been such mockery, indecision, and corruption that just seems to go by – and so remarkably so that everyone, except the Ringmaster himself seems to be in awestruck and left wanting.
I will readily admit that in my experience there has never been such excrement – literally feces, dung, and various other remnant parts – floating around a Ringmaster and his Court we refer to as an executive branch of government.
The hilarious oddity given this situation is that either it will be very hard to seize the orchestrating culprits if for no other reason than “We the People” seem to buy what the latest flavor of dung is – or the most monumental excuses are proffered enough for everyone in the world to see the U.S. as complete and utterly incompetent.
And we will be taking challenges for the following two weeks if there is anyone out there who has seen or experienced factions within a government that this one under the leadership of Barack (Barry) Obama (Sotero) and the stupid people who are falling on their swords by the minute…moreover, by the scandal and in doing so what has been lost…nothing!
I really do apologize on behalf of The Contemplative Thinker as well as those who work here that have to put up with me. I beg your apologies my dear readers if it seems as though I am coming undone. Allow me to preempt some thoughts…
Currently we have in the United States investigations going on like parties; subsequently, for goodness sakes people ask yourselves this question: Are we investigating the right people for alleged crimes they’ve committed. If there is anything that we learned from Watergate it was twofold: the first part was aiming at the right person – let’s forget about the little guys and the bugger flickers; and at least President Richard Nixon had enough class to resign before the articles of impeachment were even dry.
America was set up with tolerance and a measured response to how much human nature it would take from rebellious factions. The United States were set up and anyone who is reading this should take the time to read the documentation that was used in the preparation of the guiding principles. The Declaration of Independence is one of the most astounding documents they relied on. Just a few worthy of mentions here:
The Rights of the Englishmen, just about anything from John Locke and Adam Smith, England during the Middle Ages was an officially Christian nation. Many ideas on how things should be done in law therefore had their origins in Judeo-Christian thought, from the Bible and from Christian theology.
Like it or not folks – however the fact remains that there is far too many references made throughout American history to justify otherwise. America’s social mores and constructs, counter culture analysis, and the way in which we live are the direct results of those who believed this to be true.
Therefore, as we continue to embarrass ourselves in the eyes of the world perhaps there is something that each person would be willing to contribute as a “collective article” here at The Contemplative Thinker. Okay it seems to me that approximately one year ago, or precisely April-May 2012 there was a press inundated with score sheets that Barack Obama carried with him and many people often checked to see if they were on any of “those lists.”
Now when one takes legitimate power entities such as the Associated Press International, Benghazi Libya, the Internal Revenue Service, and the State Department, Justice Department, the FBI, C.I.A., almost every intelligence agency truly known, as well as today’s ‘get back’ by Eric Holder to an AFT agent whistle-blower and hey, why not, Fast & Furious as well, the Attorney General of the United States finding newly acquired information to bring charges…this stuff is in a heap.
Veterans are highly skilled, dedicated individuals who bring to the civilian workforce those same qualities. However, transitioning from the battlefield to civilian life can be difficult. The panel of veterans and philanthropists at Heritage’s Protect America Month event, “Serving Those Who Serve,” gave some insight on how communities can help.
Different veterans need different kinds of help. Some have serious physical injuries, others have psychological wounds still others experience post-traumatic stress disorder (PPST), and others have traumatic brain injuries. Some families have been destabilized through one member’s military service.
Are you ready for this news? We hope so; subsequently if you are not prepared for the data espoused please do as we have done and contact your local Veteran’s Administration. Please understand that the following story is true.
Ike joined the Army at age 18 in 2008. In Afghanistan in 2009, he was hit by multiple bomb blasts, including one that threw him across a road like a horse-shoe. Sophisticated armor helped him escape with just bruises, but the blasts battered his brain. Ever since, he has been hit with heart spasms and seizures.
Ike is in many ways the typical modern disabled veteran. He survived combat with barely a scratch but later was diagnosed with what have become the most common wounds of a decade of war — traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder, which together likely affect more than half a million veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan, the Department of Defense said.
What happened when he came home is increasingly typical, too. At Fort Carson, the damaged soldier racked up punishments for being late to formation, missing appointments, getting in an argument, and not showing up for work. All of these alleged offensives are quite typical in a military environment where one is making the transition between a “war-time Army and a peace time Army.”
It only gets worse for Ike so stay with us. These behaviors can be symptoms of TBI and PTSD, and Army doctors recommended Ike go to a special battalion for wounded warriors. Instead, his battalion put him in jail, and then threw him out of the Army with an “other-than honorable discharge” that stripped him of veteran’s benefits. He was sent packing without even the medicine to stop his convulsions.
After the longest period of war in American history, more soldiers are being discharged for misconduct than at any time in recent history, and soldiers with the most combat exposure are the hardest hit. A Gazette investigation based on data obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) shows the annual number of misconduct discharges is up more than 25 percent Army-wide since 2009, mirroring the rise in wounded. At the eight Army posts that house most of the service’s combat units, including Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, misconduct discharges have surged 67 percent!
All told, more than 76,000 soldiers have been kicked out of the Army since 2006. They end up in cities large and small across the country, in hospitals and homeless shelters, abandoned trailers and ratty apartments, working in gas fields and at the McDonald’s counter. The Army does not track how many, like Ike, were kicked out with combat wounds.
To us this hard-line attitude amongst the cadre to all fellow soldiers is unconscionable. This is bringing up some very painful decisions made by politicians, such as the amount of tours of duty a soldier is allowed to serve.
This sure made me start thinking when I heard a soldier interviewed about tenured service whereby he was just starting his fourth combat tour and according to him, it was to be his last. Well he did make it miraculously through two additional tours before being medically returned to the United States.
Have you ever gone around shirking any kind of resemblance to a quiz, test, or other big jargon like an exam when it comes down to what it is that we know in and from the U.S. Constitution? So many of us simply take it for granted that the Constitution is really the preamble “We the People”, in conjunction with those first ten or so amendments. Believe it or not, that is remarkably what it states about the importance of Americans Founding Documents for the Naturalization Test or basically any of the websites that offer quizzes.
As far as we are concerned there are three rudimentary questions that must be addressed if we are to survive as a people – a nation.
1 – Why is America so unique in world history; 2 – Why the Constitution (and the underlying principles on which it is based) enabled America to become the freest, most prosperous nation in history; and 3 – Why the key to making America great again is to restore the Constitution as the supreme law of the land.
To do this, “We the People” must elect a government that will respect rather than violate or ignore the Constitution. Subsequently the only way to make this happen is if the American people learn about and understand the Constitution, and it underlying principles of individual rights and limited government.
There are many, many sites available that will openly encourage each of us to take a small quiz. The Pew Research Center, the International Scholastic Institute, and of course, the Naturalization Test that regardless we ask each of you to at least take a look at what real dumbing-down is and consequently grade inflation.
There are many institutions that actively teach the Principles of the Constitution as well as American heritage which are so critical to preserving liberty in America.
We are fully convinced that the only way to counter the assault on the Constitution and to restore liberty in America is to educate American citizens and our elected leaders on the Constitution and its underlying principles.
There is a reason that the Founders debated and went through the ratification process to ensure we had a Constitution. The principle reason is that the Constitution does not allow the government to do what it wants – a reason that it established a federal government with specific, enumerated powers. That reason is to ensure that the federal government does what it must to preserve liberty, and does not become tyrannical.
The Constitution does not authorize Congress to create the massive bureaucracy today that results in a fourth branch of government. And with the passage and enactment of Obamacare, that branch will grow even larger.
The Founders understood the need for a Constitution to limit the power of the federal government to protect civil and religious liberty. It is well-known today that if our political leaders actually followed the Constitution, one estimate suggests that the federal government would be about one-third the size it is now.
Furthermore, most of the day-to-day governing in America would take place at the state and local level. Instead our leaders are ignoring or actively opposing the limits on government established by the Constitution, literally enslaving future generations with unsustainable debt.
Unfortunately, far too many Americans today don’t even know what the Constitution says – which is why America is in such dire straits. Most Americans have never even read our Declaration of Independence, which sets forth the principles of liberty and limited government more clearly than any document ever written.
Please do not forget about our poll just over to the right…please participate!
Are we experiencing tyranny…?
Are we indeed facing tyranny? Predicated upon the definitions of tyranny there can be no doubt whatsoever that we have a tyrannical top-heavy government – that uses as its medium of control is the cruel use of power.
Consequently, since Barack Obama took office he has espoused oppressive government – C.E.O. wages and pension plans, or severance pay and bonuses, including every public or private company in the United States. Well one may ask how anyone would be privy to that information. We respond by saying anyone with access to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has a way of finding out who’s making what from date to date.
Our point is as a matter of just looking at the current obstructions – Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate, and perhaps the most egregious, AP-gate we find these obstructions a cruel and oppressive act especially by one committed to wielding great power – like the president.
Now overall since this man and his fellow corrupt-o-crats have laid siege on Washington D.C., hence the world, let’s look at some of his maneuvering. Asserting a dictatorship by not consulting Congress in matters regarding immigration reform which he took upon himself through the old fashioned way – the back door is about as sorry as anyone can aspire to be.
It is our posture that this man does not have the necessary constructs to even be a member of humankind. Here we speak of dimensions of the soul – conscience, ethics, and his constant acts of domination that instills despotism in our fellow Americans.
When one looks at the dossier of what has occurred on this man’s watch it could stand before any other U.S. leader. The green energy scandals, the Welfare Reform Act through his totalitarian justice system are ridiculous. Giving away Benefit Cards for food stamps and other sundries, and lest we forget green cards for all the incoming dreamers and illegal’s.
But wait…this is the same man who developed and shoved Obamacare down the throats when over 70 percent of Americans said no. In our attempt by publishing the “ Didn’t know” list in combination with Fast & Furious, Benghazi-gate, Obamacare, free i Phones, his own Secret Service mess in Colombia, as well as AP-gate we believe that this individual has a lot to be held accountable for and to whom.
In other related matters we implore you to visit The Weekly Standard to follow up on this brilliant piece of investigative journalism.
The White House on Wednesday released 94 pages of emails between top administration and intelligence officials who helped shape the talking points about the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that the CIA would provide to policymakers in both the legislative and executive branches.
The documents, first reported by THE WEEKLY STANDARD in articles here and here, directly contradict claims by White House press secretary Jay Carney and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that the revisions of those talking points were driven by the intelligence community and show heavy input from top Obama administration officials, particularly those at the State Department.

Just imagine this…
Eric Holder lashed out at his chief antagonist Wednesday at a congressional hearing where the attorney general was questioned on recent administration scandals, telling Republican Rep. Darrell Issa at the end of a tense exchange that his conduct is “shameful.”
Holder’s comments came after Issa accused him of purposely and repeatedly keeping information from Congress. Now let’s all ask ourselves…does AG Eric Holder purposely keep information from Congress?
Any sound and logical person, knowing the history of Eric Holder’s visits to the Senate Judiciary Committee, the House Committee on Ethics and Responsibility, and now the House Judiciary Committee investigating Holder’s involvement with why he called the FBI and other DOJ personnel off of the Boston Marathon bomber; there’s a key here folks – Eric Holder has been found in Contempt predicated upon is dragging feet with the Fast & Furious investigation.
“No, that’s what you typically do,” Holder responded. Following crosstalk, Holder added, “That is inappropriate and is too consistent with the way in which you conduct yourself as a member of Congress. It’s unacceptable and it’s shameful.”
The heated exchange with the lawmaker who led the charge against Holder regarding the botched Operation Fast and Furious came during a House Judiciary Committee hearing that examined a new set of scandals. Holder was grilled on a series of allegations, including the way the agency tried to find out who was behind a government leak to The Associated Press.
The AP, along with several lawmakers, say the Justice Department infringed on the constitutional rights of the press when it secretly obtained two months’ worth of phone records. Lawmakers tried to get answers out of Holder Wednesday but voiced frustration after Holder repeatedly rebuffed questions by claiming he wasn’t involved in the decision-making process.
This brings us to a portion that speaks volumes about the entire Obama administration. How often have we, as America citizens seen the usurping and unreasonable attacks on our rights by this over sized and pathetic government?
Worse still is how many times they think we are going to buy-in to their somehow faulty memories – for example:
REV WRIGHT racist statements – “didn’t know”
BILL AYERS – “didn’t know him from that era”
AIG EXECUTIVE BONUSES – “didn’t know”
SOCIAL SECURITY SCANDAL lavish parties- “didn’t know”
VAN JONES resignation – “didn’t know his radical past”
ACORN wide-spread scandals – “didn’t know”
SECRET SERVICE scandal – “didn’t know”
ALIAS EMAILS / EPA – “didn’t know”
EPA RADICAL ARMENDARIZ, RESIGNATION – “didn’t know”
FAST & FURIOUS – “didn’t know”
BENGHAZI – “didn’t know”
IRS TARGETING CONSERVATIVES – “didn’t know”
AP PHONE WIRETAPPING scandal – “didn’t know”
What kind of administration would go to the lengths…
What can you say about an administration that lies systematically about events leading up to the torture-murder of one of its ambassadors, U.S. military personnel and other U.S. citizens in Benghazi?
That can you say about an administration that uses drones to spy on its own citizens and to kill them overseas without due process. Has there ever been a time in the history of the U.S. where anyone remotely had domination complex?
What can you say about an administration that monitors the phone records of the largest news-gathering organization in the world – and one of the friendliest to that administration?
The only fair assessment is that it is a rogue administration. One that represents a frightening departure from any previous historical precedent in its authoritarian nature, one out of touch with the rule of law, one that is revealing itself to be prone to tyrannical policies and one that has committed so many impeachable offenses it’s becoming difficult to count them all.
And please don’t mind…but it is us who have stood by and done nothing whatsoever to stop this thug with his thuggery. (Please click here for further attribution.)
Almost on a daily basis now the police-state tactics of the Obama White House are on display. They no longer need to be ferreted out by a handful of independent journalists and the citizen blogosphere. Even the Big Media that have coddled Barack Obama and shielded him from scrutiny for nearly five years are shocked by what they see. (Please see this link.)
The latest abuse was revealed by the Associated Press – which was also the victim.
The lead says it all: “WASHINGTON (AP) – The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of…
The shocking report goes on to explain both work and personal phone records were seized and scrutinized.
“In all, the government seized the records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012,” the report continued. “The exact number of journalists who used the phone lines during that period is unknown, but more than 100 journalists work in the offices where phone records were targeted, on a wide array of stories about government and other matters.”
AP is, of course, outraged – and today sent a letter of protest to Attorney General Eric Holder, who, I predict, will not finish out his term in office.
“There can be no possible justification for such an over-broad collection of the telephone communications of the Associated Press and its reporters,” said the letter. “These records potentially reveal communications with confidential sources across all of the news-gathering activities undertaken by the AP during a two-month period, provide a road map to AP’s news-gathering operations and disclose information about AP’s activities and operations that the government has no conceivable right to know,” wrote AP President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Pruitt.
Obama rose to power suddenly and, with the help of friendly media like the AP, was unstoppable in his bid for a second term. But he may be the cause of his own political undoing. Nobody likes what they are seeing in Washington today – not the left nor the right nor the mushy middle, not the so-called “mainstream media” nor its burgeoning alternative, not conservative legal watchdogs nor the American Civil Liberties Union.
The Obama administration is running out of cheerleaders.
This is big.
It’s a game-changer.
Obama is fighting off too many scandals – Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate and now Press-gate.
If this were almost any other president in American history, he would already be writing his resignation letter.
These times (spoken about) are priceless as they are will no longer taught to our children. Many ‘freedoms and or rights’ are banned in some places. How does one say that you 1st Amendment rights are being thrashed. Now under the veil of Gun Control, our 2nd Amendment rights are being attacked with fervor. How should we present the rights of none incrimination. That one ladies and gentlemen must be placed back into our Bill of Rights or how long do we let this shadow government abuse us?
We’ve been BRAINWASHED for decades..and it’s been passed on to us. If we ‘choose’ we pass it on to our children or it’s going to take some type of world wind event that will once again allow us to live cohesively.
It was ‘made’ NOT BY THE PEOPLE…but by a shadow government and it still continues today. The private banks, the so-called government that is no longer ‘voted in’ but chosen.. The laws, rules, and regulations and the list goes on and on for a group “inside the beltway” people who we understand has been granted every privilege from earnings to investments.
What then is the need for the people. Years ago we had been warned by our founder’s what to look for primarily based on the nature of man. The major problem with humankind is in the notion of insatiability. No matter what a human has at their discretion they will always want more.
This indeed is one of the reasons I thought to prepare this article. When is enough ever going to be enough? I’m sure that you’ll agree that whatever a human’s religion, spirituality, income, ladies and/or gentlemen we may have – it will never be enough.
Now let’s have a look a politics and those who run the establishment, the politicians. Rarely, if ever do I ever have much to say about politicians. Albeit between us (the world) and them (hedonistic state) more anxiety is caused by the actions of just a few than by the many. This is a problem that needs addressing right now!
Look to your local news report: Benghazi-gate involves nothing more than lies after lies told until there are those begin to believe it. Furthermore, if there is anything true about Benghazi-gate it is that the lying has taken place at the highest echelons of government – and is anyone ever going to be put to their proper punishment for the lives lost during September 11, 2012? There are those times when I just would like to tell those people to shut up! Moreover, as I happened upon a Sunday news talk show the major topic of discussion was the demeanor taken by Hillary Rodham Clinton and now Barack Hussein Obama. I would love to say “watch that tone with me, Missy.”
Think about it people…use your heads and tell me why the nation romances the 1950s and 60s in music, arts, film making, and motifs. I believe in my heart of hearts that this is the last time American values, the American way, and American social mores were fanciful and pleasurable.
Now in the interim we have such illuminating travesties such as a President who won’t disclose his college transcripts; moreover, this same person is using someone’s social security card. On video reports we see from his lips that he doesn’t like America, in fact, tells us that we didn’t do it – settle and make this country what it is.
Furthermore, how many of us truly believe that our once “integrity bound” system of voting is really that way today. Imagine please 19 million or more illegal immigrants being rewarded for breaking our laws. Someone please tell me how does one honor a judge, lawyer, or politician when the world that they live in is quite different from ours.
Okay let’s process the likes of Fast & Furious – that illegal gun running operation assisted by US taxpayer funds, done unknowingly so by honorable ATF agents and tried like everything to expose the culprits. Meanwhile the whistle blowers who had done the right thing are being terminated and it gets worse with threats against their families. Who has paid the price for that stupid life-ending operation? Brian Terry has friends, colleagues, fellow officers, family, relatives, and parents that have been lied too and justice never gets served.
If you don’t think that all of these messages broadcast into your ears has an anxiety affect – believe me look at your kids and the schools they attend.
Almost every cliché or expression used especially when describing something on a one-line basis. “THESE are the times that try men’s souls…” was actually written by Thomas Paine in a piece called The American Crisis which is a collection of articles written during the American Revolutionary War.
For all the ‘Doubting Thomas’ out there…
We have an overwhelming need to express our guts in this issue of The Contemplative Thinker. We of course demand the utmost of civility, decorum, with seasonings of politics tossed rather heavily into our writing concoction.
No one can possibly imagine what being a international whistle-blower is like until we have at least walked in those shoes. Could you imagine what Bob Woodward and Bernie Goldstein as young reporters covering one of the largest political scandals up to that time in history.
I, on the other hand, share a great deal with my colleagues here – especially when it comes down to the complete utter disregard for the very lives of those who have served you. Just look below or go to ‘categories’ and select Benghazi-Gate or Benghazi-gate inasmuch as we have tried to keep abreast of the reports and especially the people involved therein.
This very much brings to my mind a quote by the Father of the Constitution, Pres. James Madison:
“I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power, than by violent and sudden usurpation’s” – James Madison
Barack Obama told the American people that before he went to sleep on the night of the Benghazi terrorist attack (while the attack was still ongoing) he authorized the use of all available resources to help get the situation under control.
During his testimony on the attack Leon Panetta admitted that after he informed Barack Obama of the attack at hie pre-scheduled 5:00 meeting on September 11th that he didn’t speak to the president again that night.
So where Barack Obama was that night and what was he doing that was so important he never called in to see what was going on? The White House isn’t saying:
“On Friday morning, CNSNews.com called the White House press office to inquire about where President Obama was, what he was doing, and who he was communicating with, after 5:30 p.m. on the night of Sept. 11, 2012. At 10:29 a.m. on Friday, CNSNews.com followed up by emailing questions to the White House press office.
On Friday afternoon, CNSNews.com additionally followed up by calling the White House National Security Council press office and also emailing that office the questions. CNSNews.com also followed up on Friday afternoon by again calling the White House Press Office and emailing the questions again to that office.
The White House press office Monday morning confirmed receiving the questions but did not have a timetable for when it could provide answers.
We know that Barack Obama had what he considered to be more important things on his mind, namely the fundraiser he had to attend the next day, and it has been rumored that he simply went to bed during the attack to prepare for his busy day on September 12th. We deserve to know if this is the truth because all that we know at this point is that Barack Obama seemed uninterested in the attack which killed Chris Stevens, Glenn Doherty, Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods and to me that is a dereliction of duty.
Now we have learned from whistle-blower Gregg Hicks that a special operations force in Tripoli were preparing to fly into Benghazi but were ordered to stand down:
“Hicks also reported that SOCAFRICA commander Lt. Col. Gibson and his team were prepared to board a C130 from Tripoli before the attack on the Benghazi annex. Gibson received a call saying, “you can’t go now, you don’t have the authority to go now.’ And so they missed the flight … They were told not to board the flight, so they missed it.”
If this special ops unit was allowed to precede it is likely that Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods would be alive today so the question is; did Barack Obama actually order all available resources to be used to stop the attack or was his order disobeyed? Personally, I find it hard to believe anyone disobeyed a direct order from the commander-in-chief, if they had they would have been held accountable because it would have given Barack Obama the “out” he so desperately needs at this point. I don’t think the order was ever given.
There is an absolute plethora of information now that the whistle blowers are allowed to speak. Until next time…
Immediately after Speaker Boehner released his ‘Progress Report’ on Benghazi, another 13 Republicans bolted from House Leaders to cosponsor the Benghazi Committee.
If that isn’t an embarrassing ‘Vote of No Confidence’, I don’t know what is! What’s worse, Boehner’s ‘Progress Report’ dismissed in one slim paragraph the most egregious question underlying ‘Benghazi-Gate.’
We cannot be certain however the stance, position, and overall effectiveness of Speaker Boehner – as far as leadership is concerned – is definitely lacking if asserted at all.
America’s Question: Who ordered the military to deny help to four fellow Americans – then abandoned those men to slaughter at the hands of wicked, bloodthirsty Radicalized Islamic terrorists? Who gave the order? There are a multitude of issues that went wrong during the siege on our Embassy.
We believe that the American public has a right to know what happened, why it happened, and at whose watch it occurred on. It absolutely makes this writer and our staff sick to Kingdom come when we hear “The 3am Phone Call” that was played during Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president.
The ongoing events ex post facto or after the fact to this day make us simmering with anger over untold truths and the notion of fabrications; however, in lieu of all of this rubbish President Obama, still hasn’t taken one bit of accountability for this insane act of Islamic radicalism.
We guess he had far too important businesses to tend to in Las Vegas Nevada the following night to even bother himself with four American lives crusted to an end including a US ambassador and some Navy Seals.
Even worse is that the US AG Eric Holder proffered nothing in the way of securing the crime scene or even sending the FBI – allegedly the best forensic scientists – in the world until weeks after those tragic events occurred.
Therefore us to this point we have identified the Secretary for the State Department, the President of the USA, as well as the attorney general for the US – who is the highest ranking law enforcement official in the country. Yep, that’s right – the only person who can bring charges against the POTUS is the person appointed by nobody else than the president.
Boehner’s ‘Progress Report’ Answers: ‘No U.S. government element refused or denied requests for emergency assistance during the crisis.’
Is this the best they have? What a croc! No wonder 13 more Republicans bolted after this ‘nothing-burger’ of a ‘Report’!
Now for the ‘rubber hits the road’ portion of this writing. Why or what on earth do the leaders of this nation have to hide that is so overwhelming that everything had to be heard after the campaign for reelection; so much indeed that another member of the elitist group had a series of head and mental issues that kept her from testifying.
Now the lying about ‘forced retirement’ of State department officials when in fact, they might have switched offices has to stop.
In other matters there are some interesting parallels being drawn between the absolute failure of Obamacare and this new proposed legislation from the Gang of Eight regarding immigration reform. Please stay tuned for either later or tomorrow. Interesting topics will include…How Obamacare and Immigration Reform bill are tremendously abhorrent to the American people; and, learn how and why the Senate Majority Leader, Senator Harry Reid, is distancing himself or see ya’ Obama!
