Krauthammer: Obama Was Plotting Benghazi Cover Story Before Last Two Americans Were Dead… “He never after during the eight hours when our guys have their lives in danger, he never called the Secretary of Defense, he never calls the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, he never called the CIA Director, Who does he call?

I think there is a bigger story here that will in time come ou

One of the most famous sayings of the Bolshevik revolutionary Leon Trotsky was this: “You may not be interested in war, but war is interested in you.” It’s one of the few correct things that violent Communist ever said.

 

President Obama is clearly not interested in war. And he has stacked his administration with people who are similarly not interested. This is especially true when it comes to Islamist terrorists. They may make war on us, but to Mr. Obama and his minions, these are “man-caused disasters” or, preferably, domestic crimes to be dealt with in the normal course of the administration of justice.

 

Catch them mass-murdering here, then read them their Miranda rights and let them be “lawyered up” with free counsel. Members of what former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy calls “the al-Qaeda bar” can always be found to represent those accused of mass murderers pro bono.

Too many pundits in the national news media glibly stated over and over again that Kentucky Senator Rand Paul stood on the floor of the United States Senate — for nearly thirteen straight hours last Wednesday — to “filibuster” President Obama’s nominee for CIA Director. And sure, while this is technically true, in my view this sort of political analysis completely misses the mark. Writing in the Washington Times on Friday, the senator explained in his own words why he rose to speak that day — namely, to defend the principles enshrined in the United States Constitution:

This is probably not the symbolism the White House wanted. Hours after CIA Director John Brennan took the oath of office—behind closed doors, far away from the press, perhaps befitting his status as America‘s top spy—the White House took pains to emphasize the symbolism of the ceremony.

Petraeus scandal puts four-star general lifestyle under scrutiny

 

View Photo Gallery — The David Petraeus scandal: Cast of characters: A scandal that began with the relationship between retired Gen. David Petraeus, the director of the CIA, and his biographer, Paula Broadwell, has mushroomed. Here’s a look at the people mentioned in the case.

Then-defense secretary Robert M. Gates stopped bagging his leaves when he moved into a small Washington military enclave in 2007. His next-door neighbor was Mike Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the time, who had a chef, a personal valet and — not lost on Gates — troops to tend his property.

 

Gates may have been the civilian leader of the world’s largest military, but his position did not come with household staff. So, he often joked, he disposed of his leaves by blowing them onto the chairman’s lawn.

 

Among the new information uncovered by the Post’s Greg Jaffe and Anne Gearan, the Petraeus biographer was asked to leave her doctoral program at Harvard and apparently mistated her accomplishments at West Point.

You have to understand that the Obama White House has hundreds of people…all they do is post and comment and try to push their version.

 

They…what it is…it’s a whole program to either direct the news coverage, or give media the excuse that they are just reporting on…or reflecting the public opinion. So what we need to do…inaudible…of what I already talked about. We need to get ahead of this new media thing…all of us. Republicans.

 

Conservatives…whatever. Congressman Paul talked about it the other day…he was right about that. 100%. So everyone needs to go out there and post their comments. Make the media know we are more…ummm…we are paying attention now. And so…they need to cover what…the stories that we are commenting on. Use basic economics on them. Just go all out and overwhelm the comments sections of these stories. Share the truth. And demand…demand more of the truth. And demand that they start…they need to ask this White House real questions now.

Can you do that? Can they do that? Petraeus gave us an opportunity – now we need all of your help.UM: I’ll do my best. Just like you – can’t promise anything. But you’re right…people are…after the election they were pissed.

(Rush) There Is A Circle-The-Wagon Op Around Barack Obama That Nobody Is Going To Penetrate

November 14, 2012 1 comment

Posted on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 8:58:56 PM by NachumOn his Wednesday radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh warned his listeners not to have high expectations for embattled former CIA Director David Petreaus’ testimony on the Sept. 11, 2012 terror attack in Benghazi.

 

Rush Limbaugh

Cover of Rush Limbaugh

 

The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, but, according to Limbaugh, if Petreaus says anything differently than what he had said right after the attack, he could be branded a liar.

 

“If Petraeus goes in there and says anything different than what he said on Sept. 13, do you know the world of hurt that he’s in?” Limbaugh said. “What did he say on Sept. 13 — or whenever the testimony was — he said it was the video. He said it was an out-of-control mob, spontaneous-combustion protest, because of the video. OK, now let’s say that he goes into tomorrow and he, if he doesn’t say exactly what he said to Congress back in September, then he’s going to get the question: ‘Were you lying then, or are you lying now?’”

Krauthammer: WH ‘Held Affair Over Petraeus’s Head’ For Favorable Testimony On Benghazi

November 14, 2012 Leave a comment

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer on Tuesday said the White House used David Petraeus’s affair to get the CIA director to give testimony about the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that was in line with the administration’s position on the matter….

KRAUTHAMMER: I think the really shocking news today was that General Petraeus thought and hoped he could keep his job. He thought that it might and it would be kept secret, and that he could stay in his position. I think what that tells us is really important. It meant that he understood that the FBI obviously knew what was going on. He was hoping that those administration officials would not disclose what had happened, and therefore hoping that he would keep his job. And that meant that he understood that his job, his reputation, his legacy, his whole celebrated life was in the hands of the administration, and he expected they would protect him by keeping it quiet.

I have received the letter below a couple times now, and checking with Snoops they can only dispute it to the extent it originated with Nick Palmisciano co-owner and co-founder of Ranger Up and not General David Petraeus. The Army was excited enough about Palmisciano’s work that they published it on their Facebook. I verified the substance of its truthfulness as you can do also by looking at the links I checked.

Rush: The Petraeus Scandal and Benghazi

November 13, 2012 2 comments

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

 

RUSH: I’m gonna go back to Petraeus. Have you heard, by the way, that Petraeus went to Libya after Benghazi, did his own investigation? He did. He interviewed people himself. You gotta remember this, too. Petraeus also testified, or I think he testified. I think it was testimony.

 

gophum

If he didn’t testify, he said publicly that it was spontaneous combustion that led to what happened in Benghazi. He lent credence to the fact that it was the video, as the CIA director. Then he goes there, and he went to Benghazi, he conducted his own interviews. It’s after that trip to Benghazi that all of this starts hitting the fan.

 

Petraeus probably knows what happened. He knows full well what happened. And he could explain what really happened. But what happens now if he does? And, by the way, how does Hillary Clinton get away with being out of the country, and Panetta?

What is this, a monarchy? (imitating Clinton) “I’m sorry, I don’t feel like testifying. I’m tired. All I want to do is sleep and taste wine.”

Was David Petraeus Blackmailed By His Own Government?

Petraeus Scandal: An affair that was known to the FBI for months and kept from congressional oversight committees might explain his complicity in a false narrative of the Benghazi terrorist attack and the order to “stand down.”

The addition of sex to Benghazigate adds a dimension sure to keep the scandal going and one that does indeed make Watergate seem like a third-rate burglary. The affair admitted to by Gen. David Petraeus, now our former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, might have attached blackmail or the potential for blackmail to a scandal we have already called a case of criminal negligence.

The story of David Petraeus’s resignation is evolving, and we may know more soon enough. But for now, he is said to have resigned because he committed marital infidelity in a way that could have exposed the U.S. to harm. Greta van Susteren of Fox News says his jobs as a general and CIA director made him “very vulnerable to blackmail from those with very bad intentions against the United States.”

Will Obama Keep Power By Any Means Necessary?

WASHINGTON – APRIL 28: President Barack Obama (L) listens while his nominee for Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Army Gen. David Petraeus, speaks in the East Room of the White House April 28, 2011 in Washington, DC. President Obama announced he is nominating Director of the CIA Leon Panetta as Secretary of Defense, commander for International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) and US forces in Afghanistan Gen. David Petraeus as Director of the CIA, Ryan Crocker as US ambassador to Afghanistan and Gen. John Allen as commander for ISAF and US forces in Afghanistan. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)

Recently by Jack D. Douglas: Another Good Reason To Avoid Hospitals

This question has been raised a vast number of times since LBJ.

It misses the crucial reality of power at the top of the U.S.

The “Presidents” have long been front men for the vast military, secret police, government bureaucracies, big corps…..Reagan was the beginning of the obvious Actor-Lip-Synching-Presidents. [JFK and Nixon were probably eliminated by the CIA et al. because they insisted on pursuing Detente with the Soviets in reality, rather than as mere rhetoric for the Mass-Mediated Dunces. That enraged the CIA and other Brass. Ford went along. Carter was kind of out of it and irrelevant.] Since Reagan, all have been acting their parts, Clinton and Obama brilliantly, except Bush 1 who was the Director of the CIA and all the Secret Government in the White House. Iran-Contra was a tip of the iceberg of the Secret Coup In The White House, in that case obviously run by admirals and colonels under Bush 1.

The blowback continues from President Obama’s overreaching attempt to turn the killing of Osama bin Laden into a weapon with which directly to attack Mitt Romney.

First, some Navy SEALS, the outfit whose members risked their lives to kill bin Laden, took exception. Then, a key operative at the CIA, who helped secure intelligence that led us to bin Laden using practices opposed by Obama, balked.

“A recently disclosed memorandum from then-CIA Director Leon Panetta shows that the president’s celebrated derring-do in authorizing the operation included a responsibility-escape clause: “The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRaven’s hands. The approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the President.

“And in 1935 President Franklin D. Roosevelt was set to eliminate all of the 48 states in order to implement nine regional governments that would operate as extensions of the federal government.
All local law enforcement would be eliminated.
The plan failed, but the fact that it was attempted points to an ever present, insidious stealth plan on the part of some within the federal government to take away the right of the people and the states to elect their own local law enforcement and to vastly strengthen the hand of the numerous federal law enforcement agencies that currently operate throughout America.”

…..More revelations stemming from the Arpaio investigation will undoubtedly be forthcoming. Yet despite the potential historic Constitutional implications and reminiscent of Lenin’s dogma, the politicians and the media not only remain silent but actively suppress legitimate inquiry.

Why is that? Because facts are stubborn things.

President John F. Kennedy said:

“We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is afraid of its people.”

The politicians and the media are afraid to let the American people judge the truth and falsehood of their statements and actions.

When NSA or the CIA spy on Americans I always go back to the video/audio clip of a Maryland motorcylist who was pulled over by a nutjob offduty state trooper. He skidded to a stop in front of the motorcyclist and pointed his pistol at the innocent motorist. The off duty cop was in civilian clothes and told the dude to turn the bike off. Later when the cop realized the motorist had a helmet-cam and everything was on tape, the cop charged him with spying without his consent and the motorcylist was threatened with 15 YEARS in jail. But NSA can put spy equipment into our homes to watch us make love to our wife, and sneek a peek at our 12 year old daughter changing clothes, and nothing is done. Its bullshit……

WASHINGTON — Four-star general-turned-CIA director David Petraeus almost resigned as Afghanistan war commander over President Barack Obama’s decision to quickly draw down surge forces, according to a new insider’s look at Petraeus’ 37-year Army career. Petraeus decided that resigning would be a “selfish, grandstanding move with huge political ramifications” and that now was “time to salute and carry on,” according to a forthcoming biography. Author and Petraeus confidante Paula Broadwell had extensive access to the general in Afghanistan and Washington
