JERUSALEM – Did the State Department scrub information about a dramatic incident the night of the Sept. 11, 2012, Benghazi attack in which U.S. Embassy staff 400 miles away in Tripoli evacuated their residential compound under possible terror threat?
The threat was taken so seriously that, according to a key embassy staffer, communications equipment was dismantled and hard drives were smashed with an ax.
The scene was first brought to light in congressional testimony last week by Gregory Hicks, the former U.S. deputy chief of mission in Libya, but it remains largely unreported by news media.
The incident also was not mentioned in the State Department probe nor was it previously reported in news accounts of the attack, which the Obama administration first claimed was a result of popular protests about an anti-Muhammad video.

Bill Gives DHS Sec. ‘Virtually Unlimited Discretion to Waive Any Manner of Crimes,’ ICE Council Warns Congress | CNS News
By Craig Bannister
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) entered a letter from law enforcement officials nationwide warning of the dangers of the immigration bill S.744 into the judiciary committee record today.
The letter To Congress from the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Council of the American Federation of Government Employees Affiliated with AFL-CIO warns of the discretionary power the bill gives to “political appointees” and takes away from law enforcers:
“Congress can and must take decisive steps to limit the discretion of political appointees and empower ICE and CBP to perform their respective missions and enforce the laws enacted by Congress. Rather than limiting the power of those political appointees within DHS, S. 744 provides them with nearly unlimited discretion, which will serve only to further cripple the law enforcement missions of these agencies.”

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is facing a campaign to recall him from office. They are collecting signatures, and already have more than half the required amount with two months to go. This follows a re-election campaign last year which saw unprecedented amounts spent on both sides, as George Soros committed $10 million to oust “America‘s Sheriff”. Joe was forced to spend his entire ‘war chest’ of $8 million to (barely) hold onto office – the closest race of his career.

Liberal education has been very successful in this country because nobody challenged the progressive educators and their agenda. We are waking up to the unraveling of our society caused by this liberal education and wondering, what happened. Could it be too late to reverse the damage?
Conservative news outlets are pointing out the obvious—our children have been indoctrinated into socialism for 33-40 years and this indoctrination is finally bearing fruit.
We have bred a nation of young, entitled citizens who do not like to work, do not like to read or study anything too involved or complicated that exceeds Twitter’s 140 words, do not take responsibility for their actions, exhibit righteous indignation if their demands are not met, claim racism and hate speech if others disagree with them, and are afraid of their shadows.

Former congresswoman Gabby Giffords’ op-ed piece is getting a lot of praise on Twitter. This is the part of the piece that caught our attention: What they will do is create one fair system for all gun buyers, instead of the giant loophole we have now. Right now, we have one system where responsible gun owners take a background check —
And then we have a second system for those who don’t want to take a background check. Those people — criminals, or people suffering from mental illness, like the young man who shot me — can buy as many guns as they want on the Internet or at a gun show, no questions asked. Giffords seems to be implying that her shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, didn’t undergo a background check. This is not true. Loughner obtained the gun legally, and he passed a background check.
President Barack Obama, the greatest man in the history of the world
Posted on Tuesday, April 02, 2013 8:41:37 AM by Lakeshark
Barack Obama is more than the greatest President in the history of the United States; he is the greatest man in the history of the world. After millenia of darkness, he did what Jesus Christ could not: He showed us what it means to be created in the image of God.
“How does this happen?
What is going on?”
Some of you might instinctively say,
“It’s gonna be the education system.
It’s gotta be the media.
I have here a story in the Washington Times.

“I better not mention this story.

Devil looks like Obama in ‘The Bible……….. “Beck refers to Obama as “that guy,” having vowed not to utter the name of the president in all of 2013.”
President Barack Obama, already famous for having flies attracted to his face, is now the subject of devilish talk after Sunday night’s episode of “The Bible” miniseries on the History Channel, with big names such as Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh providing their thoughts.
Twitter exploded with comments from viewers who noticed an eerie similarity between the face of Mr. Obama and that of the Satan character, played by actor Mehdi Ouzaani.
Media giant Glenn Beck was among the first to make the connection, tweeting, “Anyone else think the Devil in #TheBible Sunday on History Channel looks exactly like That Guy?”
Beck refers to Obama as “that guy,” having vowed not to utter the name of the president in all of 2013.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he has a solution for the Federal government‘s outrageous mass release of illegal aliens: put them in “Tent City”!
The thousands of mostly criminal illegals were let go as a political weapon by the Obama Administration against Republicans, supposedly due to automatic spending cuts — known as the sequester.
But the illegals were released a full week before the potential cuts were even scheduled to take place, exposing the lie of Janet Napolitano‘s claims.
There is also now a huge national backlash underway as the extent and danger of those criminal aliens released have been made public.

Despite potential budget cuts being 4 days away and Congress and the Administration have been negotiating to avoid them, the Department of Homeland Security has already started releasing hundreds of illegal aliens held in local jails in anticipation of automatic “sequestration” cuts – out of a planned total of more than 10,000 aliens to be released.
Authorities demanded Twitter, online scanner censorship before setting fire to cabin
By Paul Joseph Watson
February 13, 2013
Audio which indicates police involved in the siege against Christopher Dorner deliberately planned to set fire to the fugitive’s cabin was preceded by an attempt by authorities to impose a media blackout in an apparent effort to cover up the chain of events that led to Dorner’s death.
As the standoff reached its height, Big Bear-area police scanners were disabled online in order to “ensure officer safety.”
The sniper was gunned down by former Marine Eddie Routh at a Texas shooting range while Kyle was attempting to help Routh overcome his post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from service in the war in Iraq. Paul’s comment on Twitter was as follows: “Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that ‘he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.’ Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn’t make sense”
Some are smugly pointing out that this disorder can be treated by repeating the trauma-inducing phenomenon under controlled conditions, thus making a shooting range a plausible site to attempt to aid someone with PTSD. Of course, it is not this part of Paul’s Twitter comment that is being criticized as “appalling”–it’s the part of the statement that says “Chris Kyle’s death seems to confirm that ‘he who lives by the sword dies by the sword.’”

Ever the provocateur, Rob was on Twitter ripping on Obama’s inaugural comments in real time, only to draw a rebuke from a member of the MSM who said that today he should “give it a rest” and “celebrate that we can do this peacefully.”
That got me thinking: Do what peacefully? Throw a huge, expensive party (regardless of who paid for it) so that official Washington can celebrate itself?

“Drudge rules our world,” responded Slate journalist David Weigel to Smith’s post on Twitter, later adding sarcastically, “SOMETHING SHOCKING HAS BEEN POSTED ON THE INTERNET.”
“Our right is nuttier than your right (US to 193 countries),” wrote the Al-Monitor’s Laura Rozen.

Paulson Was Behind Bailout Martial Law Threat
Paul Joseph Watson
Thursday, November 20, 2008
Senator James Inhofe has revealed that Henry Paulson was behind the threats of martial law and a new great depression prior to the passage of the bailout bill, having made such warnings during a conference call on September 19th, around two weeks before the legislation was eventually approved by both the Senate and Congress.
Now I’ve been watching this news for most of the day. Remarkably, it seems to change every few minutes.
First, we had the name change. Who exactly did the shooting? Ryan? Adam? Someone else?
Then, we hear that someone in camo garb or something was apprehended in the woods. When I first heard this, I assumed it was the brother and that was why there was confusion about the name.
But turns out that the brother was actually at work – and was not in the woods. So who was in the woods?

Not just Infowars.com, but many a political researcher and pundit took notice that Ron Paul’s farewell address to Congress was a historic and very important speech spelling out that our country is becoming a corrupt empire and that we’re becoming a tyranny of tyrannies.
The New York Times, LA Times, Fox News and many others all heeded his farewell address, something that doesn’t normally happen with a Congressman, as he eloquently laid out the fork in the road America has come to: liberty or tyranny.

Alex talks with Rep. Ron Paul about the influence behind the scenes that elite groups such as Bilderberg wield.
Has the nation gone irreversibly blue? Did intraparty disunity sabotage Mitt Romney‘s presidential quest? Or is there some other explanation for the nation’s re-election of a president with the worst record in decades?
I received an email from a brilliant conservative friend who wonders whether Republicans can ever win another election and thus whether the nation is forever lost. I ran into a college student at church the Sunday before the election, and despite his strong conservatism and high intelligence, he admitted confusion about the candidates’ respective positions after the presidential debates.

Ever wonder what happens to the internet after you log off? I bet it never crossed your mind that even though you logged off the internet, your computer is still vulnerable. Yes, if you fail to actually turn the internet off first before you log off, you are leaving your pc’s hard drive vulnerable to being hacked. It doesn’t happen to everyone, but it does happen enough. Imagine all the vital information you have on your computer that someone could steal.
Paul Joseph Watson | Should threatening to shoot a presidential candidate in the face earn you a Secret Service visit?
American Thinker | I’d say it will depend on how close it is. If Romney wins 4 or 5 states by less than 1% – a real nightmare of a possibility – my guess is there is a possibility of rioting.
Natural News | Obama’s top Justice Department official, has prosecuted more whistleblowers during his tenure than all his predecessors combined.
Paul Joseph Watson | Secret Service attention fails to dampen violent Twitter comments.
Coulter, a Conservative writer often featured as a political pundit on news programs, is known for her abrasive personality and ability to promote her ideals despite extreme opposition. She was once attacked during a speech at a college with a violent hit in the face with a pie. Tonight, her poor choice of a word may cost her some valuable alliances.
While her use of the “r” word, as people politely refer to the term in modern society, probably reflects the way the term was used in everyday society in her formative years; it was commonly used in school and everywhere else in a teasing sort of way until 10 or 15 years ago.
Will cities all over America erupt in violence if Mitt Romney wins the election? Right now we are probably witnessing the most divisive campaign in modern U.S. history, and both sides truly hate one another. Even CNNis running articles about how polarized politics in America has become and how vicious both sides can be.
There is a lot of anger and frustration out there that has been bottled up for a long time, and this election could end up being a trigger event that releases a lot of it. Both sides are entirely convinced that they can win this tightly contested election, and one side is going to feel bitterly disappointed when it does not happen. Both sides are talking as if it is going to be “the end of America” or “the end of the world” if they lose this election. This is particularly true when it comes to Obama supporters.
The pro-President Obama lawyer is rumoured to be preparing for her so-called ‘October surprise‘ in which she will strike the Republican presidential hopeful’s chances by unearthing some sort of secret or scandal.
There is a lot on this blog that, in my opinion, doesn’t point to any pre-knowledge. However, the second point that is made, and supported by video, is that Obama knew who the questioner was regarding the Benghazi attack BEFORE the questioner identifies himself.

Despite numerous media outlets attempting to downplay the issue, Twitter exploded last night following the debate with new threats from Obama supporters to assassinate Mitt Romney if he defeats Obama in the presidential race.As we reported yesterday, in addition to threats by Obama supporters to riot if Romney wins, innumerable Twitter users are also making direct death threats against Romney.
A mysterious new microsite promising an “October Surprise” for the presidential racepopped up online this week, and is promising to release damning documents related to one of the two candidates.
Despite the issue receiving national media attention, Obama supporters continue to threaten to riot if Mitt Romney wins the presidential election, raising the prospect of civil unrestif Obama fails to secure a second term.
The story was subsequently picked up by innumerable media outlets. Highly respected economist and philosopher Thomas Sowell also voiced his concerns that race riotscould ensue if Obama is not re-elected.
Checking Twitter feeds this morning, we discovered that threats to riot on behalf of Obama supporters are still flooding in, with the users seemingly unaware of the fact that the media has now picked up on the buzz.
