“we do know that Islamic extremists with ties to Al-Qa’ida participated in the attack.”…CIA Benghazi talking points memo
“400 US surface-to-air missiles were ‘STOLEN’ from Libya during the Benghazi attack and are ‘now in the hands of Al Qaeda’, claims whistleblower”…The Mail Online August 13, 2013
“Because I tend to rely on evidence and not on hearsay, I believe we should focus our attention on Amrish Mahajan and the Mutual Bank of Harvey, not on Giannoulias and the Broadway Bank, if we are to assign names to the financial institution about which Sneed of the Chicago Sun-Times has heard “rumblings.” Although Mahajan is not known to readers of No Quarter and to the national media, I imagine they will desire more information on the unscrupulous banker once they read the information I unpack below the fold. And yes, Obama is involved, deeply involved.”…Truthteller, NoQuarterUSA October 12, 2008
Never let a good crisis go to waste.
If you don’t have one. Create one.
From Zero Hedge August 29, 2013.
“As Syria Distracts, Here’s What’s Happening While No One Is Looking”
Today, the Obama administration announced fresh measures to restrict the availability of firearms in the Land of the Free.
This time around, they want to ban the re-importation of firearms that have been exported from the US to allied nations. They also want to raise the bar on federal background checks.
But rather than go through Congress, the Obama administration is simply going to create a new ‘rule’.
‘Rules’ are a type of regulation created directly by agencies within the Executive Branch. They’re not laws, but they carry the same weight and effect as laws, complete with criminal and civil penalties.
Oftentimes, hundreds of new rules are proposed every single day in the Land of the Free. It’s the easiest way for the President to circumvent the Constitution and simply decree whatever he wants.
The US government is once again danger close to defaulting.
Bear in mind, at the start of the ‘credit crisis’ six years ago, US federal debt was just $8.9 trillion. Today, US federal debt stands at $16.738 trillion– 88% higher.
Curiously, the statutory debt limit is $16.699 trillion… so the US government already breached its limit 39 billion dollars ago.
For the last few months, the Treasury Department has been resorting to ‘extraordinary measures’ in order to avoid default (i.e. things that you and I would go to jail for).
But Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is about out of bullets. So the US could be in danger of defaulting at any moment, especially if an unexpected fiscal ‘surprise’ should arise… like, uh, war.
That’s the funny thing about war– they tend to be expensive. And starting another war might very well be the straw that broke the camel’s back.”
I applaud Zero Hedge for pointing out another Obama camp diversion.
However, they left out a few things that Obama might wanted attention diverted away from.
- The real employment situation. Huge drop in labor force participation, increase in part time employees, etc.
- AL and VT supreme court Obama eligibility cases.
- Blagojevich appeal.
- FDIC v Mahajan lawsuit.
- Obamacare impact on jobs and health care costs.
- Add your own Obama problem. Time prohibits listing them all.
