“72 hrs!! 72 hrs!!!! Hell, he knew it in real time! Stop this crap. We are not children out here.”

Problem is at least 51% of the people don’t give a damn.

That’s what I want to find out. How many people want to take on the Republican establishment?

Has the Republican establishment written the rules in a way that makes it impossible for us to overcome.

This last question is what I really want to hear addressed since that’s our only option without abandoning the party in favor of a new party.

“The real story is about Benghazi and why the White House allowed (or maybe wanted) the ambassador to be killed.”

many twists: transhipment of arms to Syria through Turkey (whose ambassador Stevens met with hours before the attack), Stevens had knowledge of this arms shipment and had to ‘disappear’, solidify his loyalties and intentions to Ali Khamenei ... a Gift, so to speak ...

I’ve wondered why Barry had to overthrow any of these governments, that is, if you think US security was primary in his mind. He destroyed Egypt, which was basically controllable and an ally, and has been systematically destroying all of our other former allies, either by removing their leadership or making them cease to trust us.

I guess maybe it’s that US security wasn’t primary in his mind...could that be it?

He’s trying to promote Third World Marxist-Islamism. And I really don’t know why, because while Barry thinks they’ll love him and come out to kiss his toes in gratitude...they won’t. They’ll drag him out of the WH and cut his head off as soon as they’d do it to any of us.

Look at how the Libyan radicals have been taking out anyone they perceive as Sub-Saharan African...but then, Barry will probably just change his race again and become an Arab, so I guess he feels he’s safe no matter what happens.

Well, we can certainly refuse to vote for them. When we vote for RINO's, we are asking for the GOP to run another one next time.

Romney promised to repeal Obamacare and to replace it with Romneycare, which would be Obamacare with free dental insurance. We cannot win by giving these guys any support.

The Washington Post has confused us with brain-deal liberal useful idiots. There's no way in hell that every top person in the White House, CIA, Pentagon and State wasn't 'on board' with this stuff within the first 45 minutes.

“Not voting” for RINO’s isn’t enough that’s simply becoming a statue in the midst of battle.

We need a real identity and strategy to increase influence and power.

That won’t happen. If he’s not already dead, he will be soon enough. Just like the coronor who autopsied Breitbart’s body died of arsenic poisoning the day the report was released to the news.

Forget the reporters, why hasn’t Rep. King and the others asked Petraeus when he knew and what communications he had with the President, the Military and State? You have to start picking off the guys below Obama so that you build up a body of evidence that he was bering informed in real time about the events in Benghazi. They’re all too focused on the video cover up. That issue is important but nearly as critical as to why the CIC allowed Americans to die without lifting a hand to assist.

re: “The Watergate scandal was a political scandal that occurred in the United States in the 1970s as a result of the June 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C., and the Nixon administration’s attempted cover-up of its involvement. The scandal eventually led to the resignation of Richard Nixon, the President of the United States, on August 9, 1974, the only resignation of a U.S. President.”

The break-in occurred in 1972 and it took two years to eventually move things to the point that Nixon either had to face a real trial, or resign.

I don’t have much hope that the same thing will happen here, but just as with the Watergate scandal, it took time to build the case that Nixon was undeniably involved. The scandal did not hit the fan overnight. It kept percolating in the background until it could not be ignored. Of course, the media was hell-bent on getting rid of Nixon at the time - totally opposite of the media’s intent now.

However, with the WaPo publicly coming on board that Obama did indeed know that Al Qaida was behind the attack and not that stupid video prior to Rice’s TV appearances - this MIGHT be a first step toward this developing into something.

Of course the next key questions are - did the Ambassador and the CIA agents killed request military assistance? If they did then why was none sent, and who told the assets to “stand down”?

I think if these questions are actually pursued and it is demonstrated to most of the American people that military help was deliberately withheld after being requested three times, then maybe something may come of this. An impeachment and resignation? It should but who knows anymore with the idiots we have running things, and the “Obamaphone-iacs” who make up the electorate today.

I’ve had it with anyone and everyone who voted for this POS. He’s a deceitful, hateful, agenda-driven ideologue who learned very well how to talk deliberately and without anger in order to hide what and who he really is. The media are so pathetic as to be almost pitiable, but are also criminal in their complicity.

And the Soviet Socialist MSM yawn and say this is old stuff. He won the election. Time to move on. Basically, what are we going to do about this? You know they will not impeach him, so we are stuck with him. Just because we get the truth, it will not damage him. The 48 million getting free stuff think four dead bodies is worth their free stuff.

Well, the other significant thing here is that this article is produced at The Washington Post. It looks like they must know it’s all coming down, otherwise they would still be on defense.

The Washington Post, yes.

But it's not a news report. It's a column. By Jennifer Rubin, one of their token conservatives. I'm not certain that Rubin's work even appears in the dead tree version.

I.e., it's not a commitment to the truth on the part of management. It's a testing of the waters. And, if it comes to it, a defense against having maintained the fiction beyond its time...

Everybody keeps looking for a reason for Obama’s actions. They usually come down to “He’s a socialist” or “He’s a Muslim”. He may be both, but that’s not what motivates him. You’re not going to find any real socialist setting up to move to a $15 million house on the beach in Hawaii. You’re not going to find a Muslim going to a Christian church for twenty years. You will find a charlatan doing both. Look at the three part story on The Chicago Connection at illinoispaytoplay.com. Look at the stories Aaron Klein is writing at WND. Look up THE INTERNATIONAL CRISIS GROUP. See who is on their board. Obama and cronies have been using the United Nations as a cover to start wars in the Middle East. They haven’t even been using their own money to do it. They use US taxpayer money, personnel, equipment and facilities to overthrow the governments of Libya, Egypt and Syria. Kelley’s twin sister was married to the guy who handed out the money and favors in postwar Iraq. There seems to be billions of dollars missing from there. You think it’s a coincidence those twins are involved in this? It’s awful. War is awful all by itself. But war for profit? By a Democrat? That’s why the coverup.

“Obama and cronies have been using the United Nations as a cover to start wars in the Middle East.”

I don’t think many people believe this, however, I have for the past 5 years. Nobama is, what appears to be a small piece of glacier floating in the water. What you don’t see is the monster below the surface, which are foreign governments like the Saudis, the Muslim world, the UN, the Chicago mafia, socialist and communists. This is a global takeover. They want one currency, one government and one law for everyone. They orchestrated the overthrow of the Egyptian and Libyan governments, and put their people in power. It’s all coming together nicely for them. Folks better wake up.

Remember when the Republican leadership went to Nixon and convinced him to resign. That was over a third rate burglary and no one died. What are the odds that the Dims would do the same if there was irrefutable evidence that 0bama committed treason. I thought so. Dims put party over country every time. Every time.

Obama and Hillary can blame the deaths on a mistake, an operational decision that in hindsight should have been handled differently, and the American sheeple who have paid little or no attention to this matter will give them a pass.

However, if it is firmly established that Obama, Hillary and their henchmen deliberately lied to the American people about the video for political purposes, that would be more difficult to sweep under the rug.

Politically speaking, the cover-up is worse than the crime.

Point well taken.

I’ve never seriously considered the 3rd party route, but there comes a point when there’s absolutely nothing left to lose. Benghazi and election theft may have done it for me.

The sad reality for me is that I think we’ll reach critical mass before the next election. Maybe that’s the reason for the pervasive negativity that permeates this site now. Between those who think it’s probably too late and the psyops ppl who are trying to convince everyone else it’s too late, .... let’s just say there’s a different ambiance around here now!

They not only watched them die. They ordered the 2 men who save the other 30 not to do so. So....when Panetta/Joint Chief of Staff/Obama told them three times to ‘stand down’, they were ordering the killing of the other 30 people who were recued...CONTRARY TO OBAMAS ORDERS. OBAMA,in essence, ordered they allow the other 30 DIE. This is the kind of man who presides over us all. What malignancy!
