This examination of the Benghazi slaughter is worth a read by everyone:
God bless Pat Caddell for showing some integrity, a rare virtue on his side of the political aisle. Unfortunately, he is a lone voice. I pray that he will have an impact among his peers in the media.
pirro doesn’t like to be upstaged or even downstaged by other women. I have seen her literally taunt Greta and swear I don’t know how Greta managed to keep her cool...but she did. I don’t like her even a little bit.
Wikipedia defines the word complicity:
“An individual is complicit in a crime if he/she is aware of its occurrence and has the ability to report the crime, but fails to do so. As such, the individual effectively allows criminals to carry out a crime despite possibly being able to stop them, either directly or by contacting the authorities, thus making the individual a de facto accessory to the crime rather than an innocent bystander.”
Zer0 has committed a criminal act and the State Owned Media is complicit.
“So because everyone was talking about it, I flipped on geraldo...for the very first time ever, and heard the most atrocious remark from charles rangle that made me change the channel before he could even finish. What he said, and I quote, is, I really believe Republicans are dancing on the graves of these four Americans.”
Now you know why Romney didn’t push the issue during the debate. That line was prepared for Obama.
Rangel is the worst of the worst. I had to turn it off...it was obvious Geraldo had his “leading the witness” questions lined up for Obama.
If I were to respond to that with the words in my head right now, I do believe I would be in violation of federal law.
I saw him on the Janine Pirro show. I like the idea that even she was outraged by this Benghazi deception by the Obama administration and she is a judge and not one to favor republicans that I know. She seems like a neuyral party.
Maybe I am misremembering, but it seems to me that we, the people, were waved off and dismissed when we wanted the impeachment of Bill Clinton for lying in a court of law. At that time we were told, dismissively, that this is why we have ELECTIONS and if we wanted him out we could take care of it then......flash forward to now and they want to flip that whole reasoning and tell us to wait until after the election to find out if high treason took place? THEN WHAT? We wait until the NEXT election? We need to know this NOW so as to avoid ripping the country apart with impeachment trials and so forth, sort of a PREPEACHMENT.
Do you have a link for that?
Disappointed in Inhofe. He’s one of the good guys.
What a disgusting insult. How dare you compare excrement to the media. Excrement at least can serve a positive purpose.
Obama screwed up and four Americans died.
The Obama media covers for him.
Pat Caddell is upset over it.
Pat has been upset over just about everything Obama and the democrats have done for four long years.
But he still calls himself a democrat.
Glen Beck covered this last week on radio. I had a static filled station tuned in, but if I understood him correctly, Amb Stevens was directly involved in supplying those weapons.
Ann was not overly thoughtful in her comments. Caddell shamed HER. His remarks seemed heartfelt and sober, not to mention dead on target. The Judge wouldn’t have been able to interrupt him if she’d tried; and she didn’t try.
See my tagline...it’s been there since ‘08.
The upshot is that journalists dont deserve special rights other than what you and I are entitled to. If they do get special treatment it is only a concession to their influence, not a matter of principle.
- Mainstream journalists work for institutions which are members of the Associated Press.
- People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices. It is impossible indeed to prevent such meetings, by any law which either could be executed, or would be consistent with liberty and justice. But though the law cannot hinder people of the same trade from sometimes assembling together, it ought to do nothing to facilitate such assemblies; much less to render them necessary. - Wealth of nations, Book I, Ch 10
- The Associated Press newswire is nothing but a continuous 24/7 virtual meeting of people of the same trade of journalism. They must be presumed to be colluding against the public.
- The first step in any attempt at objectivity must be openness in declaring ones own interest and motivation as it relates to the issue under discussion.
- It is impossible to be open about ones own interests and motivations and simultaneously claim that you do not have any such motivations. That is, it is impossible to be open about ones own interests and motivations and simultaneously claim to actually be objective.
- All members of the AP claim that all members of the AP are objective. Therefore, members of the AP are not even trying to be objective. They may claim to tell both sides of the story - they may actually believe it - but they are not qualified to actually be able to see the side of the story that isnt aligned with their own interests. They dont actually believe that there is another side of the story than their own. Of course that is difficult for anyone to do - but then, people who do not claim to be objective are at least honest in that regard.
...”Pat Caddell is heartsick over how the press is not reporting on Benghazi”...
And, millions of Americans feel the same. How does this media think they are going to fare under the chaos of a leaderless country and who do they think will take over in a war like situation at home where people are homeless and starving? It certainly will not be their guy who ends up as dictator. Where is the judgmental functioning of their brains, their frontal lobes? Where in the world can they go to have what America has been for them? My thinking is this. If they do not care to protect our brightest and best who call for help, what do you think might happen when the dictator comes for those who disagree with him at home. Not a peep will be heard from the media if a holocaust eventually occurs. Folks, what I just said is extreme, unless you look back at history which is full of exactly what is shaping up in America which eventually ended in unbelievable human suffering. Selfish aggrandizement..That is what they care about. Real leaders step up to the plate to do what the job requires. Despots do not.
...”If some day the media loses its special protections, I wouldnt shed a tear for them. They are not deserving of those rights”...
If things do not change, that day will come.
...”Just caught the show with Pat and now Christine PELOSI is closing out on Geraldo, who is in the tank for Obama”...
Why does FOX have Geraldo on all the time? Who pays attention to anything he says? When he come up, I go to do something else until that segment is over.
...”Shun these people forever”...
When they no longer have power, they will feel the disgust coming from the public for the damage they have done to our society.
...”Pat Caddell has character. Every time I hear he will be on Fox News I tune in.
He is one of my favorites. I don’t even think of him being a liberal, he is fair and I hold him in high regard.
He will speak his mind, this is one man you never hear stutter and he never dances around the truth.
He is also a very intelligent man”...
He is all that and more. To me, Pat is a light in the darkness of the media. He is a true patriot.
“I did not see Huckabee tonight, but someone on Twitter said that Catherine Herriage told the Gov that she had documents that proves the Obama Admin was running guns to Syria via Libya.”
I did see the program and she (Catherine) did say it. It appears we have a sub-story going on here, two stories for the price of one. There is the Obama & his henchmen didn’t come to the Ambassador/our Seals’ rescue story, and then there is the sub-plot of weapons transfers taking place. A ship appears in port in Libya with arms/munitions aboard it a few days before the Sept. 11th ambush takes place. The Turkish ambassador meets with the ship’s captain, and then, on Sept. 11th, that same Turkish ambassador meets with Christopher Stevens, our ambassador, shortly before the attack by Muzzie terrorists takes place.
Why was this Turkish intermediary meeting with our Ambassador? Was it for the transfer of weapons from Turkey through Libya to be delivered to opposition forces in Syria? Was this our conduit for getting weapons to the Syrian opposition, with Chris Stevens, our Ambassador, being right in the thick of it? Why did Stevens go to Benghazi on Sept. 11th, with no announcement or fanfare or protection to speak of. And to meet with the Turkish representative, right after a ship full of arms shows up in Libya coming from Turkey? Turkey, which sides with the opposition in Syria, and wants them armed. And our involvement being to grease the skids and facilitate getting these arms through Libya to Syria for opposition use. The thlot gets plicker. Perhaps this is why Steven’s visit to Benghazi that day was kept hush, hush. Because he was going there to help facilitate an arms transfer. Perhaps, if one wants to be more Machiavellian, that is why Obama & his minions that night thought it might be a better idea to just let the Ambassador and our navy seals be expendable rather than draw attention to what the real purpose of the meeting of the two Ambassadors prior to the attack was for. Just let the Ambassador die rather than let secrets get out.
Well, that worked real well, as I must say that Fox News’ Catherine Herridge, Jennifer Griffin, and Bret Baer, have all sunk their fangs into this story bigtime. Also one mightily irritated CIA is spilling the beans to House/Senate Pubs behind the scenes, blowing the whistle on the Obama regime as to what really is happening rather than take the fall for this goon Prez.
Stay tuned, in best Flash Gordon serial style, for the next episode.
In point of fact, “journalists” have no more right to the protection of the First Amendment than you or I.
See Branzburg v Hayes
In this case was this timeless phrase:
“Sooner or later, it would be necessary to define those categories of newsmen who qualified for the privilege, a questionable procedure in light of the traditional doctrine that liberty of the press is the right of the lonely pamphleteer who uses carbon paper or a mimeograph just as much as of the large metropolitan publisher who utilizes the latest photocomposition methods.”
...”I did not see Huckabee tonight, but someone on Twitter said that Catherine Herriage told the Gov that she had documents that proves the Obama Admin was running guns to Syria via Libya”...
I wonder what else they are doing with our tax dollars.
Pat has a new fan..............me
...”Im not the most religious of our ilk, but I am so ready to feel Gods hand upon our nation”...
Me, too. Next week, with some friends, I will finish a Beth Moore study of the book of James. It has been very enlightening. It has been interesting to look closely at what James had to say in the light of Jesus having been his half-brother.
Looks like Pat could have filled the whole four minutes himself; but the Fox newsbabe wanted to talk over him.
I find that tendency maddening - Hannity is the worst - does everyone aspire to that level of rudeness?
I caught that segment with Rangel. Rivera was actually asking good questions - then he sat there while Charlie spewed his spew.
And HR let him slide.
Rangel is an idiot - check
Geraldo is a tool - check
Though, in fairness, I now have him on my local talker and he does a halfway decent job with his new show. (Don’t stone me for that)
FOX hosts talking over their guests - drives me nuts also.
I leave the room when O’Reilly is on.
Don’t understand why these hosts have people on to hear their take, or story, on a given subject, and then are all over them within seconds.
I realize the hosts aren’t there to allow a l o n g monolog, but come on!
Major problem is, 2 people right there in person, talking over each other, can actually ‘hear’/understand what the other is saying. Many of us have personally experienced this!
It’s called Bad Manners!
WE, as the TV on-looker, CAN’T UNDERSTAND THEM!
Hasn’t anyone yet told any or all of these hosts this problem??!
They must lose viewers . . .

I find Sean Hannity the worst at this. I completely stopped listening to him over this. The same with O’Reilly. However, I stopped listening to him for a few more reasons as well. I think he may have some hidden anger issues and his arogance is glarring.
I really like Greta, I know she a bit or was a bit of a lib but she doesn’t interupt. She still gets good guests, and asks solid questions. She comes on a little late for me most nights though.
Remove the Left wing MSM reporters from the White House news pool. Bar the NY Times, LA Times, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, etc. from any contact with the White House or the President. Throw the bums out, permanently!
The reason: They are anti-American propagandists, not journalists.
Romney should give a speech detailing the last 4 years of outright lies & deliberate omissions by the MSM. He should tell the country what their real, totalitarian goal is. He should make it clear he is not attacking journalism, but only those who hide behind the mantle of journalism to poison the minds of the gullible & destroy this country. He should call them traitors & provocateurs, agents for tyranny. He should call out individuals who are clearly tainted, such as “Fact Free” Crowley & “Tingles” Matthews. Finally, he should have the FBI & IRS investigate some of these people, as where there are big lies, there is big money & corruption.
The MSM has gone from thriving on bad news to creating bad (& good) news where none exists. Led by the President, we need to reject these propagandists, shame them before the world, run them out of business, for good.
I'd like to see FR do its part by REQUIRING a Barf Alert on any posts from suspected propagandists.
Exactly correct. He is honest enough with himself, and reality to face the destruction of his worldview. Not many people can do it, which is why so many on the left still support Obama.
I just don’t know who watches Geraldo. If this Gazigate were under a Republican Geraldo would be undercover investigating under rocks, especially because this story relates to soldiers, and he has contacts.
I haven’t watched him for a couple of years, but it seems to me when FOX funds him to do a story in dark places where wiggly things lie, Geraldo has no fear. Now he serves as a sycophant for the Left, so that FOX can be balanced.
Thanks for passing this on to the rest of us... the MSM does lack honor.... totally.
Pat is one of the rare old time democrats, I grew up with.
Starting with the Watergate, bs where no one died due to lies, the Democrats have morphed into the vile creatures we have in control of the White House and $inate.
A suggestion/warning for all ambassadors/embassy staff posted in dangerous areas with the Chicago Thugs in charge:
Dont depend on help from POTUS, SOD, SOS or the CIA! They will not respond to any SOSs. Then they will deny that you asked for help.
Buy or rent an Iridium Sat Phone and put Fox News Desk, Rush, Drudge, Rush and Free Republic on your speed dial, to text or call when you dont want to be slaughtered and need help.
That way the liars of this administration in charge of denying protection for you, cant deny that you asked for help.
Dont waste your remaining time contacting ABCNNBCBS! They are too busy protecting Obozo and his liars while looking for binder and racism lies save the butt of the traitor and his fellow thugs!
WE ARE THE NEW NEWS MEDIA..GET USED TO IT !
Word of Mouth Media
Hahaha, poor little Patty. So heartsick about the media conspiring to cover up Benghazigate.
I’m sure he just somehow missed the last 40 years of the same shit every day. Poor little Patty just now realized he has been part of a very biased machine for the Democrats.
Sure hope he gets to feeling better soon. /S
Kudos to Mr. Caddell!
