Benghazi Talking Points Revisions from Big Brother, ABC News reports rectifications, Orwellian wording and Omissions, 2 + 2 = 5, George Orwell warned us

“the Times of the nineteenth of December had published the official forecasts of the output of various classes of consumption goods in the fourth quarter of 1983, which was also the sixth quarter of the Ninth Three-Year Plan. Today’s issue contained a statement of the actual output, from which it appeared that the forecasts were in every instance grossly wrong. Winston’s job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“We control life, Winston, at all its levels. You are imagining that there is something called human nature which will be outraged by what we do and will turn against us. But we create human nature. Men are infinitely malleable.”…George Orwell, “1984″

 

 

George Orwell warned us in his book, “1984.”

You were warned at Citizen Wells and other sites beginning in 2008.

ABC News reported on May 10, 2013.

“Exclusive: Benghazi Talking Points Underwent 12 Revisions, Scrubbed of Terror Reference”
“When it became clear last fall that the CIA’s now discredited Benghazi talking points were flawed, the White House said repeatedly the documents were put together almost entirely by the intelligence community, but White House documents reviewed by Congress suggest a different story.

ABC News has obtained 12 different versions of the talking points that show they were extensively edited as they evolved from the drafts first written entirely by the CIA to the final version distributed to Congress and to U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice before sheappeared on five talk shows the Sunday after that attack.

White House emails reviewed by ABC News suggest the edits were made with extensive input from the State Department. The edits included requests from the State Department that references to the Al Qaeda-affiliated group Ansar al-Sharia be deleted as well references to CIA warnings about terrorist threats in Benghazi in the months preceding the attack.

That would appear to directly contradict what White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said about the talking points in November.”
“State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland raised specific objections to this paragraph drafted by the CIA in its earlier versions of the talking points:

“The Agency has produced numerous pieces on the threat of extremists linked to al-Qa’ida in Benghazi and eastern Libya. These noted that, since April, there have been at least five other attacks against foreign interests in Benghazi by unidentified assailants, including the June attack against the British Ambassador’s convoy. We cannot rule out the individuals has previously surveilled the U.S. facilities, also contributing to the efficacy of the attacks.”

In an email to officials at the White House and the intelligence agencies, State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland took issue with including that information because it “could be abused by members [of Congress] to beat up the State Department for not paying attention to warnings, so why would we want to feed that either? Concerned …”

The paragraph was entirely deleted.

Like the final version used by Ambassador Rice on the Sunday shows, the CIA’s first drafts said the attack appeared to have been “spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo” but the CIA version went on to say, “That being said, we do know that Islamic extremists with ties to al-Qa’ida participated in the attack.” The draft went on to specifically name the al Qaeda-affiliated group named Ansar al-Sharia.”

From “1984″ by George Orwell.

Exerpt A.

“The frightening thing, he reflected for the ten thousandth time as he forced his shoulders painfully backward (with hands on hips, they were gyrating their bodies from the waist, an exercise that was supposed to be good for the back muscles) — the frightening thing was that it might all be true. If the Party could thrust its hand into the past and say of this or that event, it never happened — that, surely, was more terrifying than mere torture and death?
The Party said that Oceania had never been in alliance with Eurasia. He, Winston Smith, knew that Oceania had been in alliance with Eurasia as short a time as four years ago. But where did that knowledge exist? Only in his own consciousness, which in any case must soon be annihilated. And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed -if all records told the same tale — then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past,’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.’ And yet the past, though of its nature alterable, never had been altered. Whatever was true now was true from everlasting to everlasting. It was quite simple. All that was needed was an unending series of victories over your own memory. ‘Reality control’, they called it: in Newspeak, ‘doublethink’.”
Exerpt B.
“A little later all three were re-arrested. It appeared that they had engaged in fresh conspiracies from the very moment of their release. At their second trial they confessed to all their old crimes over again, with a whole string of new ones. They were executed, and their fate was recorded in the Party histories, a warning to posterity. About five years after this, in 1973, Winston was unrolling a wad of documents which had just flopped out of the pneumatic tube on to his desk when he came on a fragment of paper which had evidently been slipped in among the others and then forgotten. The instant he had flattened it out he saw its significance. It was a half-page torn out of The Times of about ten years earlier — the top half of the page, so that it included the date — and it contained a photograph of the delegates at some Party function in New York. Prominent in the middle of the group were Jones, Aaronson, and Rutherford. There was no mistaking them, in any case their names were in the caption at the bottom.
The point was that at both trials all three men had confessed that on that date they had been on Eurasian soil. They had flown from a secret airfield in Canada to a rendezvous somewhere in Siberia, and had conferred with members of the Eurasian General Staff, to whom they had betrayed important military secrets. The date had stuck in Winston’s memory because it chanced to be midsummer day; but the whole story must be on record in countless other places as well. There was only one possible conclusion: the confessions were lies.
Of course, this was not in itself a discovery. Even at that time Winston had not imagined that the people who were wiped out in the purges had actually committed the crimes that they were accused of. But this was concrete evidence; it was a fragment of the abolished past, like a fossil bone which turns up in the wrong stratum and destroys a geological theory. It was enough to blow the Party to atoms, if in some way it could have been published to the world and its significance made known. “
“That was ten — eleven years ago. Today, probably, he would have kept that photograph. It was curious that the fact of having held it in his fingers seemed to him to make a difference even now, when the photograph itself, as well as the event it recorded, was only memory. Was the Party’s hold upon the past less strong, he wondered, because a piece of evidence which existed no longer had once existed?
But today, supposing that it could be somehow resurrected from its ashes, the photograph might not even be evidence. Already, at the time when he made his discovery, Oceania was no longer at war with Eurasia, and it must have been to the agents of Eastasia that the three dead men had betrayed their country. Since then there had been other changes — two, three, he could not remember how many. Very likely the confessions had been rewritten and rewritten until the original facts and dates no longer had the smallest significance. The past not only changed, but changed continuously. What most afflicted him with the sense of nightmare was that he had never clearly understood why the huge imposture was undertaken. The immediate advantages of falsifying the past were obvious, but the ultimate motive was mysterious. He took up his pen again and wrote:
I understand HOW: I do not understand WHY. “
“The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command. His heart sank as he thought of the enormous power arrayed against him, the ease with which any Party intellectual would overthrow him in debate, the subtle arguments which he would not be able to understand, much less answer. And yet he was in the right! They were wrong and he was right. The obvious, the silly, and the true had got to be defended. Truisms are true, hold on to that! The solid world exists, its laws do not change. Stones are hard, water is wet, objects unsupported fall towards the earth’s centre. With the feeling that he was speaking to O’Brien, and also that he was setting forth an important axiom, he wrote:
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows. “

Exerpt C

“A little Rumpelstiltskin figure, contorted with hatred, he gripped the neck of the microphone with one hand while the other, enormous at the end of a bony arm, clawed the air menacingly above his head. His voice, made metallic by the amplifiers, boomed forth an endless catalogue of atrocities, massacres, deportations, lootings, rapings, torture of prisoners, bombing of civilians, lying propaganda, unjust aggressions, broken treaties. It was almost impossible to listen to him without being first convinced and then maddened. At every few moments the fury of the crowd boiled over and the voice of the speaker was drowned by a wild beast-like roaring that rose uncontrollably from thousands of throats. The most savage yells of all came from the schoolchildren. The speech had been proceeding for perhaps twenty minutes when a messenger hurried on to the platform and a scrap of paper was slipped into the speaker’s hand. He unrolled and read it without pausing in his speech. Nothing altered in his voice or manner, or in the content of what he was saying, but suddenly the names were different. Without words said, a wave of understanding rippled through the crowd. Oceania was at war with Eastasia! The next moment there was a tremendous commotion. The banners and posters with which the square was decorated were all wrong! Quite half of them had the wrong faces on them. It was sabotage! The agents of Goldstein had been at work! There was a riotous interlude while posters were ripped from the walls, banners torn to shreds and trampled underfoot. The Spies performed prodigies of activity in clambering over the rooftops and cutting the streamers that fluttered from the chimneys. But within two or three minutes it was all over. The orator, still gripping the neck of the microphone, his shoulders hunched forward, his free hand clawing at the air, had gone straight on with his speech. One minute more, and the feral roars of rage were again bursting from the crowd. The Hate continued exactly as before, except that the target had been changed.

The thing that impressed Winston in looking back was that the speaker had switched from one line to the other actually in midsentence, not only without a pause, but without even breaking the syntax. But at the moment he had other things to preoccupy him. It was during the moment of disorder while the posters were being torn down that a man whose face he did not see had tapped him on the shoulder and said, ‘Excuse me, I think you’ve dropped your brief-case.’ He took the brief-case abstractedly, without speaking. He knew that it would be days before he had an opportunity to look inside it. The instant that the demonstration was over he went straight to the Ministry of Truth, though the time was now nearly twenty-three hours. The entire staff of the Ministry had done likewise. The orders already issuing from the telescreen, recalling them to their posts, were hardly necessary.

Oceania was at war with Eastasia: Oceania had always been at war with Eastasia. A large part of the political literature of five years was now completely obsolete. Reports and records of all kinds, newspapers, books, pamphlets, films, sound-tracks, photographs — all had to be rectified at lightning speed. Although no directive was ever issued, it was known that the chiefs of the Department intended that within one week no reference to the war with Eurasia, or the alliance with Eastasia, should remain in existence anywhere. The work was overwhelming, all the more so because the processes that it involved could not be called by their true names. Everyone in the Records Department worked eighteen hours in the twenty-four, with two three-hour snatches of sleep.”

Some players in the modern day Orwellian rectifying?

“Relatives of Top CBS, ABC & CNN Executives Helping Obama on Benghazi!”

“You knew the mainstream media was biased, but this is incredible. It was revealed today that CBS News President David Rhodes’ brother is Obama Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes, who was instrumental in rewriting the Benghazi talking points. But it gets worse. It is now learned that ABC President Ben Sherwood’s sister, Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, is a Special Assistant to Barack Obama on national security affairs. But even this isn’t it! CNN’s deputy bureau chief, Virginia Moseley, is the wife of Tom Nides, who until February was Hillary Clinton’s deputy.

Ben Rhodes is a top NSC advisor with absolutely no foreign policy or military experience. None! This idiot has advocated intervention both in Libya and now Syria. How has that worked out for us? He is responsible for helping to massage the Benghazi talking points to watered down drivel. His greatest accomplishment appears to be a Master’s Degree in fiction writing received from New York University. So perhaps we should call him Obama’s fiction writer!”

    “CBS Anchor Scott Pelley Confesses They’re Getting Big Stories Wrong All The Time”

  3. I just watched Sharyl Attkisson on C-SPAN. She is the CBS News investigative reporter who has been reporting on Benghazi. She is a breath of fresh air amid the smog spewed by the typical American media. She is extremely articulate and credible. Watch the interview on c-span.org when it becomes available.

    Also watched an interview on FOX and Friends about 6:20 CDT this morning, of two parents of murdered Navy Seals. Extremely touching and vindictive of the PTB that allowed the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to be mocked at the memorial service of their sons. I wasn’t able to record it so I’m watching for the video to show up on the internet.

    “The twelve minute video that could make Jay Carney curl up in the fetal position”

    “Saturday night on her Fox News show, Judge Jeanine Piro spoke out with eloquence and righteous indignation over the Benghazi affair. It was a tour de force presentation of the issues in bold and commonsense language. …”

    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2013/05/the_twelve_minute_that_would_make_jay_carney_curl_up_in_the_fetal_position.html

  5. HI Jonah,

    I saw the interview with the parents of the Navy Seal. It was so touching. And like they said, “Why isn’t Obama standing up for our son’s faith? He rebukes anyone who dishonors Mohamed!” Heads should roll! This is despicable that a curse was pronounced by a Muslim cleric at a Christian funeral!

  6. Happy Mother Day to everyone, and to you CitizenWells!!

    The media, desperately trying to salvage this administration has lost all credibility. “Getting the big story wrong” should have been:
    “We are so partisan in our politics, and so supportive of dictatorship, that we have failed to adequately report the news for many years. Now that tragic events are unfolding because of our yellow journ-O-lists, and our economic involvement with government and taxpayer monies, we will attempt to increase our efforts at the cover-up and distraction of the American low information and incompetent voters. And……LOOK A GAY BASKETBALL PLAYER!!!”

    I can’t help but wonder what I could have business I could have built or created, the people I could have employed and gave meaning to their lives, with the money that I pay in taxes every year. Yet, this entire administration is full of tax and social security cheats, that take this money and employ people to damage those that work.

    I consider the deaths at Bengazi to be per-meditated murder. Yet, our non-functional legislative branch will do nothing……again.

  7. OT, but in my neck of the woods, it’s generally accepted that it is safe to plant tender annuals (such as tomatos) on Mother’s Day. Tomorrow night, it’s supposed to dip down to 30 degrees. Don’t you just love that globul (BS) warming? Does Algore even blush anymore? “The planet….has a feeeeevah!

  8. Pope Francis canonizes hundreds of martyrs beheaded for refusing to convert to Islam…

    VATICAN CITY (AP) – Pope Francis on Sunday gave the Catholic church new saints, including hundreds of 15th-century martyrs who were beheaded for refusing to convert to Islam, as he led his first canonization ceremony Sunday in a packed St. Peter’s Square.

    The “Martyrs of Otranto” were 813 Italians who were slain in the southern Italian city in 1480 for defying demands by Turkish invaders who overran the citadel to renounce Christianity.

    Their approval for sainthood was decided upon by Francis’ predecessor, Benedict XVI, in a decree read at the ceremony in February where the former pontiff announced his retirement.

  9. Happy Mothers Day to all Mothers.

  10. On another note,

    I certainly hope Lt. Zullo VIP’s quickly get on with the criminal case and exposure.

  11. Observer,

    Had that been Obama, he would have apologized to the Muslim world for the Christians not converting and blame them.

  12. I have seen on many news websites the information pertaining to the relatives of major News Organizations working for the Obama Admin. I wonder how long they can hold out before they must report on it. I have a feeling those such as Rush Limbaugh will be talking about it next week, which then leads Fox reports to follow.

  13. This is an article I posted last year. You might want to revisit it……dated Oct. 24, 2012. My memory fails me. Is this about the time that Humpty Hillary sat on a wall, and had a big fall? Bumped her head, and said “I don’t recall”?

    http://www.conservativedailynews.com/2012/10/bill-clinton-told-hillary-to-resign-us-arming-syrian-rebels-with-ties-to-al-queda-muslim-brotherhood/

    “Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, came forward to “take responsibility overall” for the attacks at Benghazi, but per Ed Klein we now know behind the scenes Bill Clinton advised his wife to resign over the possible criminal fallout of the Benghazi massacre. Today we learn from sources that not only did Hillary ask for added security, and was denied, but her closest advisers strongly suggested she seek legal counsel just days after the attack. Why? Why did “they” deny Hillary’s requests for added security to Benghazi, and why is this a situation in which a Secretary of State would need personal legal counsel? Could the Benghazi fallout, go beyond what a Public Relations firm can handle? I’d say YES. Could this be a criminal act, negligence, dereliction of duty, which resulted in murder? I’d say YES.” (READ MORE)
    ++++++++++++++++++
    Remember, Ed Klein wrote the book “The Amateur”. If this is true, then I can’t imagine Hillary would take the fall for Obama. This goes straight to the top.

  14. Interesting relationship that the Clintons have with the Obamas………..

    “Viviano said a campaign staffer who was close to Hillary, whose name she requested be withheld for security reasons, told her Gwatney’s murder was a message to Bill Clinton.

    “I was told by this person that that was ‘Shut up, Bill, or you’re next,’” she said.

    The campaign adviser, according to Viviano, said that despite the intimidation and threats, Bill Clinton was prepared to speak out about Obama’s eligibility

    “And then,” Viviano said, paraphrasing the staffer, “they went in and said, ‘OK, it’s your daughter, now, we’ll go after.’

    “And then Bill never said anything.””

  17. SueQ,
    Here’s the video of the compelling interview of Navy Seal, Aaron Vaughn’s, parents on FOX and Friends this morning. Mr Vaughn wants the Commander-in Chief to defend the policy that in this United states government that allows the body of a slain warrior to be desecrated and allows the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to be mocked. That is the God of our son and the God of our family ……

  18. DID YOU KNO…..Nice to know information

    You Have Been Labeled As An Enemy of the State

    Most Americans are already prisoners of the states by virtue of the fact that we are also enemies of the state. In fact, some of the activists are living on borrowed time as we are already sitting on death row. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has declared that the war against terror is still alive and well. However, we are no longer waging war on international terrorism, DHS has changed their targets. If you have been declared a terrorist, then you are an enemy of the state by default.

    According to DHS,….. you are a domestic terrorist…
    if you possess any of the following attributes:

    1. If you are Christian who believes the Bible is the word of God, then you are a terrorist.

    *2. If you are a returning or retired veteran, then you are a terrorist.

    3. If you are a Libertarian, then you are a terrorist.

    4. If you are a supporter of the Constitution, then you are a terrorist.

    5. If you are a supporter of Ron Paul ideals of limited government, then you are a terrorist.

    6. If you store more than three days of food and water, then you are a terrorist enemy of the state preppers

    7. If you grow your own food, then you are a terrorist.

    8. If you are a gun owner or support the Second Amendment, then you are a terrorist.

    9. If you question government authority and notice the conspiracies that they ferment, then you are a terrorist.

    10. If you protest against the government, then you are a terrorist.

    11. If you take photographs in public, then you are a terrorist.

    12. If you videotape the cops committing police brutality, then you are a terrorist.

    13. If you make a phone call, send a fax or text message, visit a pro-constitution free website, email anyone, post or visit on Facebook, use Google, travel by plane, then you are a terrorist because every one of these actions are monitored under the guise of detecting terrorism.

    Now many of these criteria fits your description?

    Every man, woman and child in this America, unless they work for NWO interests, have already been declared a terrorist by their government.

    The Nazis, the KGB and the East German Stasi have nothing on the DHS. What would have been unthinkable only a generation ago in the form tyrannical abuse of power by the government, has arrived inside our country and it has arrived with a vengeance.

    We have very few liberties left to give up….other than our lives.

  19. Thanks so much Jonah!

    Sounds like the dad went a bit “off script”, (sorry, I don’t even trust Fox anymore), but he and his wife expressed themselves SO well. It is obvious Seal Team 6 were hung out to dry for political reasons.

    I am beyond angry.

  20. Sue,
    Here’s another video showing Mr. Vaughn’s disdain for the government’s actions.

  21. I cannot wait for Barry to come out in front of the camera and say….”I did not order the ‘stand down!” “I was busy getting a bj from Reggie.” “Hillary did it!”

    And…….Hillary will say “I did not order the “stand down”…I was busy on top of Puma!” ; =) Wink! Wink!

  22. p.s. I forgot that finger! At least Bill used the index finger…Barry used the fu finger. hehehe

  23. Jonah, once again thanks. I had not noticed the first time around. The fact that he lifted his arm, not once but twice (pretenting to scratch his shoulder), tells me this is a deliberate message.

  24. from reading and listening i get the impression that some people including some of the vip’s that mike zullo is meeting with may be content with just a resignation from obama or whatever his name is . well i see a resignation as totally unsat . obama would sit back and draw a pension for life from the taxpayers plus all the other benefits for retired presidents . i say and i sure hope enough other people believe the same that the obama fraud must be brought to full and complete exposure to all the people in theu. s. and all over the world . the complete truth must be exposed in addition , any and all the people involved in this fraud and illegal presidency have to be exposed , and brought to criminal justice along with the usurper . anything short of this is unacceptable and is an injustice to all the ccp supporters and donors to the investigation as well as to all the u. s. and american people . the 18 month investigation along with all the donations will have been for nothing if these deeds are not carried . this has to be done also to prevent this kind of fraud and other crimes from ever happening again . i have tried to get this message to mike zullo , carl gallups , and of course sheriff arpaio . everybody , please help me get through to them with this message if you have a better way of contacting them than i do . we do not want any resignation by obama or impeachment dog and pony show such as we had with bill clinton . nobody ever got removed from office by impeachment . it is just a show . zullo and the ccp cannot allow themselves to be fooled by such a phony show that will leave obama in office . there has to be warrants issued , arrests made , prosecutions , and convictions regardless of who or how many people come down . we cannot accept anybody being above the law . obama and the guilty ones cannot be allowed to take the easy way out .

  25. Did you wonder why the IRS admission came out on a Friday “dump” day?
    It seems to be the W.H.’s feeble attempt to divert attention away from the Benghazi revelations. What they don’t realize is that we can walk and chew gum at the same time. Their scheme is not going to work in the end.

  26. Sometime last year……………

    Humpty Hillary sat on a wall, and had a big fall? Bumped her head, and said “I don’t recall”?

    This year…………

    “What difference does it make?”

  27. I hate to feel this way, but I wouldn’t be surprised at the Left creating more chaos and/or attacks to distract us as the seats gets hotter and hotter for Obama & Hillary. We know that animals backed into a corner are more dangerous and that’s how I see this administration. They already have their claws and teeth bared against law abiding citizens who love this country the way it was founded. I can’t help but think that the Left feels it has come too close to destroying this nation to let anything get in their way now. Last resort will be to call martial law so that whatever constitutional rights we might still have left will be rendered null and void.

  28. Not a “great” mind but a very sick mind. The ruling for slaughter of the most vulnerable wasn’t done in the best antiseptic way itself and allowed for it to be “targeted”. Never mind the real “targeted”. What a disgraceful witch. And it, like the decision on O-care, was a complete hoax based on a hoax:

    Ginsburg says Roe gave abortion opponents target

    May 11, 10:40 PM (ET)

    By JASON KEYSER

    CHICAGO (AP) – One of the most liberal members of the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg could be expected to give a rousing defense of Roe v. Wade in reflecting on the landmark vote 40 years after it established a nationwide right to abortion.

    Instead, Ginsburg told an audience Saturday at the University of Chicago Law School that while she supports a woman’s right to choose, she feels the ruling by her predecessors on the court was too sweeping and gave abortion opponents a symbol to target. Ever since, she said, the momentum has been on the other side, with anger over Roe fueling a state-by-state campaign that has placed more restrictions on abortion.

    “That was my concern, that the court had given opponents of access to abortion a target to aim at relentlessly,” she told a crowd of students. “… My criticism of Roe is that it seemed to have stopped the momentum that was on the side of change.”

    The ruling is also a disappointment to a degree, Ginsburg said, because it was not argued in weighty terms of advancing women’s rights. Rather, the Roe opinion, written by Justice Harry Blackmun, centered on the right to privacy and asserted that it extended to a woman’s decision on whether to end a pregnancy.

  29. Stephen Hayes of The Weekly Standard was first ut with the story but since he’s a conservative he was given no credit even though ABC based uts story on his.

    Typical.

    Read Hayes account at TWS.

    “Benghazi Whistleblower a Democrat Who Voted for Obama Twice”

    “He voted for Hillary in the primary and Obama twice,” Victoria Toensing, a former federal prosecutor, told Newsmax TV host Steve Malzberg in an interview on WMAL radio in Washington.

    Toensing also disclosed Hicks’ political affiliation to NBC in an interview, but “NBC spiked the story where I told it before the hearings.”

    “It’s just amazing what the press is still trying to do to cover this up,” she told Malzberg. “So they try to make this partisan because of the lawyer.

    “Well, I’m not the messenger. He’s the messenger! The modus operandi is to find anything they can do to just attack.””

    “Saturday’s edition of Saturday Night Live mocked the House Oversight Committee’s hearings last week on the Benghazi terror attacks, substituting convicted murderer Jodi Arias for the State Department whistleblowers who came forward to testify about the deaths of four American diplomats on Sep. 11, 2012.

    Partisans on both sides on are often criticized for failing to laugh at themselves when they are the targets of satire. Yet the studio audience at NBC’s Rainbow Room in New York had a hard time laughing, as most of the jokes fell flat. The result was a sketch that dishonored the deaths of four American diplomats in a weak attempt to defend the administration–a sign of panic among the president’s media and entertainment allies.”

  35. PRESS CONFERENCE JUST ENDED….

    Obama said about Benghazi that it was nothing but a sideshow, ” a political circus”, etc……..

    Well Mr. President, the only “POLITICAL CIRCUS” going now is YOU…..you are the only “sideshow”.

    That tactic to explain Benghazi WILL NOT work now…….

  36. In reference to the BENGHAZI attack, Obama said

    “There is NO there , THERE”….

    Now just what in the hell does that statement mean?…Sounds like a BILL CLINTON to me…remember, “that depends on what the word is…is”

    MY, my…these politicians sure learn fast from their elders….

  37. RMinNC,
    I completely agree with you on your above opinions. The Progressives are smart, they will bury the evidence with google based e-mails, untraceable, so no evidence that the orders came down from Obama in both the Bengazi cover-up and the IRS cover-up. However, when your in charge you are responsible. Progressives were not targeted under the last administration, so it isn’t the director, it was ordered from above. I suppose we will have to work on the meaning of “There” or “there” is, while still trying to figure out what “is” still “is”.

  43. Obama needed. Nasa. Leaky fake space station. To get everyone looking up. And irs cause everyone hates irs. So it was easy story to sell

  44. GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY, GUILTY….

    4 COUNTS OF MURDER AGAINST ABORTIONIST…….

    NOW LETS EXECUTE HIS FOUR TIMES….(IN PUBLIC)…FOR ALL THE BLEEDING HEART LIBERALS TO WITNESS…

  45. My faith in the American people has just been reaffirmed with this trial……..There is a GOD and he will not be mocked.

    Now that we have a conviction for murdering a baby outside the womb….how about murdering one inside the womb? That is just as much a murder as the 4 convictions that came today……

  46. RMinNC,
    Agree completely!! There are three charges of first degree murder – more than enough for the death penalty – and one lesser murder charge for Baby D. The reporter for Fox said that Gosnell looked very shocked. I think his soul died decades ago, and he just thought that nothing was wrong. What a fool ! He has always appeared smiling and arrogant as he entered the courtroom. Thank God for this verdict.

  47. I hope that these verdicts of murder just seconds after it wouldn’t be considered as murder legally will jog/scare at least the consciences of many….”doctors”, “clinic” workers, clients. But does Planned Parenthood have any conscience left?

  48. Amen RMinNC!

    I think it was three though. Don’t know what the hang up was on the forth. Nonetheless, you are SO RIGHT, What does it matter inside or out of the womb. Cabby recently referred me to Psalm 139.

    Verse 13 says…………..

    For you created my inmost being;
    you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

    I have read some Talmudic teachings, and many Rabis believe that when a person commits murder, they have also murdered that person’s (potential) progeny, and they are held responsible for their murders as well. I don’t know if that is so. I am not God. But I suspect it’s true.

  49. When I say “held responsible”, that was said without taking into consideration that “the blood of Christ cleanses us from all unrighteousness”. Forgive me please. There is HOPE! And Jesus is that hope! I’ll shut up now.

  50. Interested Bystander

    Hey All,

    Does anyone know what HLN stands for now?

    It used to be “Headline News”, but it has got to be something else now, because they are STILL talking Arias, and today OJ Simpson is trying to get another trial, and THAT’s huge news (“You won’t miss a minute”), but the Gosnell MURDER trial is getting the back burner.

    I’m not sure where I heard about Gosnell, but I believe it was Wilkow where I heard him interview a reporter covering the trial.

    Gosnell is a MONSTER and should be treated as such.

    I honestly believe that each County ought to have a HANGING TREE in the town square and that Firday’s at noon ought to be HANGING DAY , and leave the body hanging all weekend to give the “people” a little hint of what might happen to them should they infringe on another person’s rights.

    I would suggest that people MIGHT think twice before committing a crime against another human being.

    Gosnell JOKED about the dead babies, he “pohh poohed” HUMAN LIFE because it helped him get through the day.

    And I’m not sure about the 1st degree murder counts (three guilty verdicts, not sure how many he was charged with, but I know SOME were thrown out last week or the week before), but I’m pretty sure I heard that the ADULT that he was charged with 1st degree murder was “downgraded” to manslaughter.

    Gosnell should be hanging from that tree this Friday.

    He is scum.

  51. Air Force Brat!

    I.B. — “HLN” could very well be called “Horrendous Living Nightmare”.

    If I remember correctly, Gosnell was originally charged with the murders of 7 babies plus the adult.

    When evil is tolerated, evil grows. It’s self-perpetuating, and eventually kills not only the body, but also the soul. Nations that don’t do jack s@!t against evil — refusing to punish wrongdoing out of fear that someone, somewhere, will get MAD at them; allowing propaganda to brainwash its citizens into becoming a bunch of cringing, hand-wringing weaklings; and turning a blind eye to the murder of its most defenseless people — will fall. I agree with you wholeheartedly about the hanging trees. Gosnell’s actions are FAR beyond the pale, and no other fate would be suitable for him. And after he’s swung for a few days, toss him in a landfill and let the seagulls and rats have at him.

    Sometimes I wonder if America is even worth saving. But other times, I remember that Nineveh repented and was spared the judgment of God Almighty. I’m sure that, just as there are today, there were also people in Nineveh who brayed their favorite defeatist talking points — “The rot is too deep”, “Too many people are too far gone”, “It’s too late”, “We’re doomed and there’s nothing anybody can do about it”, etc., etc. — but they were wrong. One can never say never.

  52. Did I hear right? AVERAGE price of a home in northern Virginia …..$709,000??????? Wasington suberbs? Mostly government workers? Notice……….AVERAGE!

    SueQ,

    For that price, you could buy a Mansion in the South.

  57. Here is what I think,

    Obama is only expressing outrage for the IRS behavior under the guise to cover his same outrage with Benghazi. He talks about them both in the same sentence, and the media covers it the same.

    In other words, if he has bi-partisan outrage and high integrity for the IRS issues, them he “must” have the same for Benghazi and would never have allowed a cover up, no more than he would with the IRS.

    Shell game….

  58. HonorFirst

    Okay, the breaking news on Drudge Justice seizes phone records from the AP….Who didn’t see something like this coming????

    I was going to post earlier about the next big diversionary story…You know look at what this hand is doing, not what the other hand is doing.

    The administration is so mired in corruption, they can’t even get their lies straight….Obama said he just learned of the IRS scandal on Friday. Jay Sekulow just said they notified O’s chief legal counsel 3 weeks ago about all the litigation coming down the pike.

    I did notice one of the reporter’s name at the AP whose phone conversations were siezed was “Apuzzo”….HMMMMM.

  59. HonorFirst

    The reporter’s name was Matt Apuzzo..Not a common surname

    The justice seized AP phone calls due to a leaked story about a foiled terrorist attack…Also the phone lines of the reporters in D.C. at Congress. Are they now going to try and intimidate the Repub Congressman….

    BTW it was Plugs Biden who “outed” the Seal Team 6 and the OBL killing.
    Until then, no one knew about ST6. He effectively put targets on all their backs as well as their families….Where is the Justice Dep’t on that major leak of confidential information?

  60. Interested Bystander

    $709,000,

    For that money here in Indiana, you could own a small town.

    But we wouldn’t want our Government workers doing “without” now would we?

    As far as the AP story goes, HF has it right. The AP is in on the “breaking news” and is merely a diversion for the IRS and Benghazi stories.

    And one more point,

    Dana Perino on the Five has it right I believe.

    If this were the previous administration, the headlines would be

    BUSH Administration pinpoints Tea Party groups for Audits

    where as now the headlines are:

    The IRS, a bipartisan department of government allegedly targeted tea party groups.

    But our media isn’t biased,

    no sireee.

    A sideshow, he discribed the Benghazi hearings as a SIDESHOW today, and the media doesn’t care.

    I’m thinking that hangin tree would be mighty busy for the first few Fridays.

  61. Interested Bystander

    HonorFirst asked:

    “Where is the Justice Dep’t on that major leak of confidential information?”

    Too busy prosecuting Manning to be bothered with Biden.

    Besides, Obama would simply pardon him.

    Thank goodness the IRS story made it through the weekend.

    And on another subject

    Where are the other people in Benghazi and what is their story?

    No one died in Watergate, and the President had to resign because he instructed people to LIE.

    4 people died in Benghazi, and you can NOT tell me that in 4 days, there wasn’t some meeting with Obama and his minions where their Sunday Show strategy wasn’t discussed. Obama told them to LIE, and COVER UP what actually happened. This was less than 2 MONTHS before the General Election, and they used the “video” line until AFTER the election.

    And on to one more subject:

    Wasn’t Holder found in contempt of Congress almost a year ago? What happened to THAT?

    It just goes to show you that no matter what laws are on the books, the people who do not want to follow them, won’t.

    Fast and Furious has died because our media has allowed it to die.

    Benghazi will die too, as will the IRS and AP stories.

    And where’s the Khalidi video, the LA Paper said it would release the video after the election in 2008.

    I’ll bet that the week after Obama leaves ofice in 2016, the video will appear and people will be saying “If we only knew……………………..”

    When we have sold enough of Ireland to be but strangers in it.
    For What Died the Sons of Róisín, was it greed?

    To whom do we owe our allegiance today?

    To those brave men who fought and died that Róisín live again with pride?
    Her sons at home to work and sing,
    Her youth to dance and make her valleys ring,
    Or the faceless men who for Mark and Dollar,
    Betray her to the highest bidder,
    To whom do we owe our allegiance today?

    For what suffer our patriots today?

    They have a language problem, so they say,

    For what suffer our patriots today?

  65. HonorFirst

    I think the reason justice intercepted and seized the phone calls has nothing to do with the foiled terrorist attack…The AP withheld from breaking the story at the Gov’t’s request. They broke the story after the alleged IED was in our possession.

    Just as in the passport break-in, they had to breach 3 files to assuage suspicion on the real target. I think in this AP phone seizure story, they are looking for “collateral” info on Benghazi..(who knows what and who they are talking to…) The phone lines at the Capitol has to be the real target. Just like they did with Gen Petraeus, they need some blackmailing to do. That’s my story and I am sticking to it.

  69. Holder Personally Approved Seizure Of AP’s Phone Records…

    Which takes away the regime’s typical excuse of blaming a scandal on low level bureaucrats.

    Via Philip Klein:

    On Monday afternoon, the Associated Press reported that the U.S. Department of Justice had “secretly obtained two months of telephone records” from 20 phone lines assigned to reporters and editors from the global news organization. The shocking revelation comes on top of news that the IRS targeted conservative groups for special scrutiny. It will be harder for President Obama to pin the DOJ’s action on lower level bureaucrats, however, because requests to subpoena news organization records require the approval of Attorney General Eric Holder.

  71. This government we now have and their weekly massive scandals remind me of a CAT I once knew that had a bad case of DIARRHEA……

    It kinda goes like this: There’s five cats out in front of the “cat with the runs” looking for new ground to dig holes to bury it in…and five cats behind actually trying their damnest to cover up the stink….

    That is the most accurate description of this government I can come up with………..

    Lord, when will all this crap end?…I’m a patient man, but this SH*T is beginning to play on my nerves! This week alone, we have had THREE major scandals unfolding …….

    And BOZO is off to three more fund raisers tomorrow….

    Has this gay man-child no shame?

  72. RMinNC,
    You would think with all the illegal activity the news and papers would be lighting up the internet and the world with the revelations of corruption and illegal government. No……wait……..There might be another gay athlete!!!!! or wait…..A gay Squirrel. Like magic, everyone is distracted and the lies continue. Who knows…perhaps we will see an increase in gun related crime, or global warming, or ‘green’ energy, or even repayment of hundreds of millions of dollars lent to an Obama lobbying green company….or then again….NOT.

    Pete

  73. PETE…

    You are absolutely right……..the possibilities are endless.

  74. IN REFERENCE TO THE IRS SCANDAL……

    President BOZO said…IF IT HAPPENED…….

    Duhhhhhhhhhhhhh…BOZO, hellooooooo…….is anybody home?….. the IRS clearly said it happened and admitted to it…..
    NO… AND’S, BUT”S or IF’s Mr.Bozo……

    Also, I didn’t hear an apology for him about this either……

    if there is an if…….or was that there is no there?

    Bozo is speaking double talk…it’s a completely FOREIGN language in itself…..maybe thats the way a KENYAN explains himself…I don’t know..

  75. Wishful thinking: Congress continues to investigate Benghazi; more whistleblowers and those at the consulate testify; Ben Rhodes resigns; Congress investigates IRS scandal and implicates FBI and Homeland Security and SEC involvement; numerous resignations of directors; Congress investigates the AP scandal; Holder resigns. Supreme Court of Alabama agrees to hear case on ineligibility and receive documents and depositions of Arpaio and Taitz; US Supreme Court justice refers to Minor v Happersett as SCOTUS precendent for NBC in public speech; New York Times, CNN, CBS and ABC declare bankruptcy. Democratic leaders of Congress visit with Obama and suggest he resign for the good of the DNC and the Country. Soros, and reps of the Bilderbergs let Obama know they are removing their shield of protection. Obama resigns and is immediately pardoned by President Joe Biden. Palin announces for RNC nomination.

    Thanks for posting that link.

    The Lucas Smith BC has been out there for a while and I’m glad to read he’s filed an amicus curiae brief.

    As one of the posters said (paraphrasing) it’s time for Mike Zullo to deliver the death blow. I’ve been following Carl Gallups on PP Simmons for the latest. It’s all coming down on the usurper from every angle, now. Zullo and Gallups have evidence they say is proof positive that barky’s documents are fake.

    Yep, time to bring those chickens on home to roost. The White House is ordering extra Depends these days.

    “Mike Zullo of the Sheriff Arpaio Investigation says: “Advances towards prosecution are still be made on the fraudulent Birth Certificate Case. The Benghazi case has served to intensify interest from people at the federal and state levels who can move the BC case forward. Some very important strategy meetings are coming up within the next couple of days. We look for something to break on this matter very soon. We are asking people to please be patient – don’t give up hope. We are much, much closer than we have ever been.””

  81. DOJ and the AP Phone Records:

    The company’s(AP) CEO Gary Pruitt wrote a letter of protest to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding the return of the records and destruction of all copies. He also rebuked the government agency for obtaining information far beyond what would ever be necessary in a specific investigation under the law.

    He wrote, in part:

    “There can be no possible justification for such an over broad collection of the telephone communications of The Associated Press and its reporters. 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.”

    He added that the news organization sees the records seizure as serious government overreach: “We regard this action by the Department of Justice as a serious interference with AP’s constitutional rights to gather and reportthe news.”
    ——————————————————————————————

    Well WELCOME to the Club Mr. Pruitt…….now you know how it feels to have YOUR CONSTITUTIONAL rights stepped on by this criminal government…….

    In the past, it has been OK with your News gathering organization to silently standby and watch everyone else’s right tramped on…but when your ox is being gored…well thats a different story…..

    You should remember in the future: What this government can do to one citizen…it can do too all citizens……that includes your news gathering organization….

  82. FINALLY AFTER 56 DAYS…ABC WAKES UP

    Fifty six days after the grisly trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell began, ABC broke its self-imposed blackout and finally offered coverage.

    World News anchor Diane Sawyer belatedly told viewers that Gosnell was convicted on three counts of first degree murder against newborn babies, as well as on a slew of other charges. Terry Moran explained, “For two months, jurors heard often shocking, grisly testimony.” He described the details as a “house of horrors.” A house of horrors that ABC took 56 days to notice.

    As the Media Research Center has aggressively documented, ABC went from March 18, 2013 (the trial’s start) through Monday afternoon with no coverage. Yet during the same time, the network devoted a staggering 187 minutes (or 70 segments) to other shocking criminal cases, such as Jodi Arias and Amanda Knox.

    Moran noted that “Opponents of legalized abortion seized on this case.” The journalist quoted Jeanneane Maxon, the vice president of Americans United for Life. She asserted, “Well, Gosnell’s not an aberration. Abortion clinics are unregulated and every year we see the deaths of women inside these clinics.”

    Nightline’s Moran first highlighted the Gosnell case on Twitter, way back on April 12. But he has failed to cover the story until now.
    ——————————————————————————————-
    Glad to see that ABC really isn’t bias and that they always want to report news worthy stories in such a timely manner….It really gives me faith in our Fourth Estate……….OH PUKE….

    .I would not watch Dian Sawyer if she were the only reporter in the world and ABC was the only television station that had electricity.

  83. Good morning CW et al.,

    Watching the news, one would think or be led to believe that the IRS targets of Tea Party affiliates were not only very low lever employees carrying out a selfish lone act, but is also limited in scope to Cincinnati OH. However, I did hear on the radio yesterday it also happened to the Tea Party in my area of Chattanooga Tn. and goes far back in years beyond what the IRS is admitting. Here is the news clip.

    “The Internal Revenue Service has apologized for targeting tea party groups and conservative groups around the country.

    “In my view, the IRS singled us out and said we’re not worthy of tax exempt status,” says Mark West.

    Chattanooga Tea Party President Mark West first knew something wasn’t right as early as three years ago.

    “We were being singled out for review based on the questions they were asking and the volume of information they were requesting. It seemed pretty obvious that something wasn’t right with the IRS as early as 2010,” says West.

    In 2009, the non-profit filed for tax exempt status. West tells NewsChannel 9 that the IRS finally approved that tax return two months ago, but only approved it back to May of last year.

    “Which means we have to go back to 2009, 2010, 2011, and half of 2012, and file a tax return for each of those years,” says West.”

  84. Leaving four people to die in Benghazi, wiretapping reporters, and using the IRS to target conservatives, and Piers Morgan thinks there is no chance of tyranny in todays’s America? I wonder when Sheriff Joe’s VIP’s can make their move? The sooner America is rid of this tyranny, the better. I start today praying people are finally waking up and seeing the truth about the Obama nightmare.

  85. Watching all the liberals try to twist and spin their way out of today’s news is going to be interesting.

  86. CW, RMinNC, et al.,

    I listened a little about a bill currently being proposed by McCain that would allow cable users to pick and choose their stations and only be charged for their selections! I have always been a direct proponent of such a bill.

    Of course, the lobbyist and Liberal Socialist Democrats are highly against it, of course.

    Why? Well, I simply think they know that most Americans that truly watch the news and worthy channels are “informed” Americans, and would cut all ties to liberal channels, bankrupting them. The only financial means that currently support liberal channels is by having individuals billed for a package which includes them.

    It reminds me a few years ago when my wife wanted to add the Hallmark channel so she could watch her favorite shows like the Waltons during the day. We noticed that we had 5 Hispanic channels in Mexican language also. When we received our first bill, we were also charged for those channels as well. My wife called the cable company and they explained that the Hallmark channel came bundled with those Hispanic channels and we could not just have the Hallmark channel without paying for the Hispanic channels. Outraged, my wife had it turned off.

    “The Obama administration is so bad they make Nixon look honest, Carter competent, Clinton moral, and Benedict Arnold looks like a Patriot.”

    Yes, I improvised a little but that helps. Now, just have to figure out how to put it on a t-shirt.

  88. I dare say,

    Only the informed people have had their eyes open and for quite some time. The uninformed still don’t know and will never know. Nearly half the country (uninformed voters – Democrat) still do knot know Obamacare has passed, cannot name the Vice President, don’t know who the Secretary of State is/was, don’t know the difference between Rights and Freedom, cannot name the Secretary of Defense, believe a job is a duty of a company to employee them, couldn’t figure out how much money they should get back in change from a purchase for a $1.49 sandwich when they give $3.00.

    These people cannot and will not ever be informed.

  89. My next question is will Obama leave office peacefully, or will he attempt to start race riots, as I believe he attempted to do, with the help of the media, when Trayvon Martin was killed.
