Skip to comments.The Scandal That Will Bring Obama Down [Benghazi-gate Good read]
Posted on 01/12/2013 2:25:56 PM PST by upchuck
It’s even worse than we previously thought. A retired four-star admiral is now claiming that Barack Obama intentionally conspired with America’s enemies to stage a bogus attack and the kidnapping of an American ambassador so he could “negotiate” the release of a “hostage” and bolster his mediocre approval ratings just prior to the election!
The Washington Examiner, quoting retired Four-Star Admiral James Lyons, writes: “the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi… was the result of a bungled abduction attempt…. the first stage of an international prisoner exchange… that would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the ‘Blind Sheik’…”
But something went horribly wrong with Obama’s “October Surprise.” Although the Obama Administration intentionally gutted security at the consulate prior to the staged kidnapping, former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty disobeyed direct orders to stand down, saved American lives, single-handedly killed scores of attackers…and the attackers, believing that Obama had betrayed them, tortured Ambassador Chris Stevens and dragged his body through the streets.
Some will say that Admiral Lyons’ accusation is not a smoking gun. We agree; that’s exactly why Congress must investigate Benghazi-gate.
Moreover, we firmly believe the problem with Admiral Lyons’ assertion is that he is only scratching the surface; the full and complete truth may be much, much worse.
Benghazi-gate is not about a bogus YouTube video series of lies. It’s not about the Obama Administration’s foreign policy ineptitude. We are dealing with something much more sinister… something potentially treasonous… and the following questions, posed in an article in The New American, go to the heart of the matter:
1. ”What was the Obama administration’s full role in helping violent Jihadists, self-styled al Qaeda terrorists, and Western-backed “revolutionaries” take over Libya in the first place?
2. Did that half-baked scheme to arm Jihadist leaders, who… had previously fought U.S. troops in Iraq, contribute to the attack, as countless experts and officials have suggested?
3. What was actually going on at the compound in Benghazi, which, as the report states, was never a “consulate” despite establishment media claims?
4. Was Ambassador Stevens recruiting and arming Jihadists and terrorists to wage war on the Syrian regime after what Obama called the “success” in Libya, as a growing body of credible evidence suggests?
5. Why did the administration claim for so long that the attack was just a “protest” over a YouTube video gone awry, even when it knew definitively that was not the case?
6. Was the lack of security at the compound a political ploy to conceal the extent of the lawlessness and utter chaos left in the wake of Obama’s unconstitutional “regime change” war on Libya, as even members of Congress have alleged?”
It’s clear. Benghazi-Gate is only a small piece of a much larger operation, an attempt to conceal what The New American calls “the Obama administration’s full role in helping violent Jihadists and self-styled al Qaeda terrorists.”
Prior to the election Barack Obama continually told us that “Osama bin-Laden is dead and GM is alive”; but the sad truth is that Osama bin-Laden’s organization is alive and well, and the Obama Regime may be giving aid and comfort to this terrorist network.
And prior to the election, Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera pontificated that Republicans shouldn’t “politicize” Benghazi-gate. Swaggering onto the set of Fox and Friends, Rivera bloviated: “I think we have to stop this politicizing.” And Rivera issued the following veiled warning to Republicans: “Do we want to try and influence the election with a tragedy that happened in North Africa?”
Ironic, isn’t it? Barack Obama played politics with the lives of Americans; like Rivera, the media covered Obama’s rear and threatened to accuse anyone and everyone who mentioned it of “playing politics.”
Weak-willed Republicans apparently took Rivera’s threat to heart as Rivera also said that Republican Senators John Barrasso, James Inhofe, and Bob Corker, who all sit on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, “all agree that the supercharged atmosphere around the story prudence dictates that these hearings be postponed until” after the election.
Well, the election has come and gone. Congress now has no excuse. The American people needed the truth before the election; but now that Obama is back in the White House, real conservatives must demand answers.
The American people deserve to have those questions answered; and moreover, the American people deserve justice.
From her lips to God’s ears. If he isn’t hanged for treason, it’s too little, too late.
Yes but absolutely nothing is going to happen because the Republican party does not exist anymore and we have a communist propaganda machine posing as our MSM.
Its not a scandal until the MSM says its a scandal; and repeats and repeats and repeats. If it were Bush wed be hearing about this 24/7 until he resigned. But since its Obama crickets.
Nothing will happen even when Obama directs nukes
onto American cities.
The US Congress are enablers of treason, giddy with
their billions of dollars fleeced from taxpayers.
Nothing will bring Obama down, not now, not ever. It is like when slick Willie was in office, he could have been on video, blowing up a thousand people, and it would not bring him down.
” real conservatives must demand answers”?
Can anyone tell me the name of any congressional “conservative” with the balls to go after this magic negro?
[Can anyone tell me the name of any congressional conservative with the balls to go after this magic negro?]
Jim DeMint when he was there.
There are others.
it won’t bring him down..
The media does not care.
The GOP is just a bunch of pusses.
I’m afraid I agree that nothing will happen.
Project Gun Runner was equally criminal, and nothing will happen about that, either.
The Republican Party is dead, run by pork guzzlers who don’t care about anything but how much pork they can grub. The very last thing in the world they want is political reform. They’re happy if Obama gives them 10% of the spoils.
The groveling liberal media we all know about. And not even Fox News will touch these subjects more than gingerly.
Obama is a criminal many times over, with a gangster thug as head of his Justice Department. That, too, will continue.
Considering the current make up of the Senate, you are not wrong.
you could ad issa to that list.
So why haven’t they done it?
If they investigate Obama, the MSM will claim they are motivated by race.
I'm treating him the same way I do the "holiday season".........I just ignore it until it goes away.
I agree, nothing will happen. The game is totally rigged. He wins every time, and never has to answer for anything. We are totally f****d.
Nothing can bring Obamao down? I beg to disagree! If he announced he is a Republican, that would be the end of our dear Kenyan Sambo.
Ted Cruz, for one.
That still will not get the WhiteyHut emptied out, but keeping on pissinoff the Generals and Admirables might, along with the 10th Amendment.
Second terms for presidents tend to make them ripe for scandal.
In this case, though, you’ve got a friendly media who don’t want their boy touched, an Attorney General who looks the other way, and a Left-leaning Senate and Congress who are in the bag.
He would have to get caught on video saying allah akbar and slicing a man’s head off to even get a raised eyebrow right now.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
the “MSM” needs dealt with over and over and over again in the “what’s the frequency kenneth” fashion. They are not “talking heads”, they are purposely lying and they damn well know it. Start knocking teeth out for every lie and they just *might* re-think spewing bullshit. Just my $0.02 of course.
The Teflon Mulatto is protected by legions of the faithful MSM Obama Corps.
They will not let these facts reach the general public other than in snide attacks against Obama’s accusers by Jon Stewart on The Daily Show.
As with every other fact detrimental to Obama the media will hold up to ridicule anyone who dares raise these accusations.
I appreciate every one of your pings. Many of the articles I post on my FB and occassionally someone reads and/or shares them. Small steps I know.
Please don’t give up.
Okie Dokie! LOL
Let’s hope Cruz isn’t a flash in the plan and he is the real deal. I’ve got my finger and eyes crossed hoping for the best.
What is *Lyon’s* source for this info? This idea of what happened has been floating around for some time, but (although I find the idea highly plausible), as of yet I’ve seen no proof. Does Lyons have something? Or is he just surmising? He is a retired officer with great credibility (read his Wiki page to be impressed!) but he is also political — has been a speaker at CPAC, etc. Anyway, I’d love it if this can be PROVEN but where is the informant who will stand up and take oath that this is so???
The takers, whether it’s those receiving government cheque or those staying in power by handing them out) don’t care. He could do anything - it just doesn’t matter to enough people.
The left cares not about dishonesty, moral corruption, and every other dishonourable characteristic one can hold. It just doesn’t matter to enough people. I despise the left.
Don’t count on Obama being brought down any time soon. Rule of Law is already on its way out, and before Obama is gone, Democracy will be as big a farce as he is.
Start knocking teeth out for every lie and they just *might* re-think spewing bullshit.
While it might feel good to do that, violence is the path to losing. You simply cant intimidate your way to a conservative victory. Also, conservatism IS civilization. Liberalism is chaos, violence and intimidation. If you imitate the enemy you are no better than he. The path to winning is by taking away the MSMs money. If, for example, there was a real news organization that offered real news, that organization would corner the market and therefore the advertisers and therefore the money.
To some extent the bloggers are becoming that news organization. But they havent developed into a news market with advertisers. On the good side, the MSM appears to be dying under its own weight. Each day brings more layoffs at major papers. That isnt being driven entirely by the internet and alternative markets. It is largely because the consumers recognize theyre being fed propaganda. The consumers dont like the steady diet of lies and have stopped buying the service.
Nothing will ever come of it as far as Obama and Clinton are concerned.
I’ve been saying all along it was treason. Benghazi also made it quite obvious Zippy was reelected by voter fraud.
Finally the question is asked.
Where’s the beef? Who’s Col. Lyon?
WTH does he know and when did he know it?
I believe there is something missing from the list of questions such as:
What has happened to the people who were rescued and why haven’t we heard from them?
Just recently, I saw my congressman, Steve King of Iowa on FOX saying that Benghazigate was 10 times worse than Watergate. He’s courageous. I, too, am very disappointed this story isn’t getting more play but obviously, the MSM is protecting our traitor-in-chief.
I think this may be a bogus report that Lyons said any such thing. I wanted to find a reputable source for it so I could quote it on my Facebook page for all my Huffpo fan friends, but I can’t find the money quote at all. I went to the Washington Examiner website and looked for Lyons, James Lyons, James A. Lyons, etc., and also looked at search results for Benghazi, and I can’t find this supposed article that this blogger took the Lyons “quotes” from. I did find a very good op-ed by Lyons at this URL: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jan/11/the-key-benghazi-questions-still-unanswered/ — but it doesn’t say what the article here says that he said. Has anyone else tried to validate this report? Thanks!
We need to take responsibility as card carrying members of the New Media get off our asses and do shit.
Also, conservatism IS civilization. Liberalism is chaos, violence and intimidation. If you imitate the enemy you are no better than he. The path to winning is by taking away the MSMs money. Brilliant stuff here. We need an overall plan to take down the msm/DBM/ dnc and the socialists dems. Shooting at our own guys is not the plan.
Pinging, but at this point, I am not sure why.
Thanks for your service.
Keep the faith, Mesta.
It must be frustrating to keep an eye out for all the info, and see how many in our elected .gov prefer to be blind, dumb, and deaf.
All we can do is pray for justice, and keep track of the truth, so far as we can find it.
