People Died, Obama Lied

People Died, Obama Lied

by Joel B. Pollak 28 Sep 2012, 9:09 AM PDT 184 post a comment

People died, Obama lied. That’s the best summary of what has happened since Sept. 11, when terrorists (yes, terrorists) attacked the U.S. consulate in Libya, killing four Americans and the U.S. Ambassador, while terrorist sympathizers swarmed the U.S. embassy in Cairo.

The Obama administration insisted–though it knew otherwise–that the attacks were provoked by an anti-Islam film made in the U.S. by a Coptic Christian.

Worse, the Obama administration inflamed the supposed outrage over the film by telling the world that the U.S. condemned it and was not responsible for it–even buying airtime on Pakistani television to broadcast that apologetic message.

It also sent a signal that American principles of free expression were up for negotiation by suggesting that free speech did not include the right to insult other people’s religions, and Islam in particular.

Now, as new details emerge every day about what the Obama administration knew and when, it is clear that President Barack Obama lied shamelessly to the American people about a terror attack that claimed American lives.

The lies were repeated by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and UN Ambassador Susan Rice, among other officials. That the lies were likely told for political reasons is not an excuse but cause for additional alarm.

The reason the Obama administration believes it can get away with the lies is that it has done so before–and the media have generally looked the other way.

A week ago, before the full extent of Obama’s deception had become clear, Stephen P. Hayes of the Weekly Standard catalogued some previous examples–from lies about the underwear bomber in 2009 (“an isolated extremist”) to the Times Square bomber in 2010 (a “one-off”).

He could have added the Fort Hood shooting, which the Obama administration refused to call a terror attack, and where a culture of political correctness had allowed Maj. Nidal Hasan to continue in his Army job even after several warnings about his beliefs and his behavior. Even worse, President Obama treated the shooting flippantly, giving “shout outs” before addressing the nation–a gaffe the media have, conveniently, forgotten.

The central deception of the Obama administration is a self-delusion–one shared by the mainstream media–that Barack Hussein Obama is beloved overseas and especially by the Muslim world with which he is allegedly so intimately familiar.

This millenarian belief, this cultish creed, that Obama’s rise ushered in an age of global peace is what has led our nation’s foreign policy to the present impasse–and for Obama, there is no way out.

Obama’s lies have a cost–not just in terms of human lives, which were lost partly due to the intelligence failures on 9/11/12 that the administration is busily covering up–but also in terms of Americans’ most cherished freedoms. The Obama administration has made it clear that it is willing to sacrifice free speech–and human rights more generally–for the sake of appeasing our enemies, in the false hope of securing their non-aggression.

“Bush lied, people died,” we were endlessly told by the left and the mainstream media, even though it was Saddam Hussein’s lies to the UN that built the case for war in Iraq.

Today, Obama is lying about terrorist attacks against the United States, in an election season–an offense for which the media would have rightly drummed any Republican out of office.

Now that “people died, Obama lied” is the reality, will the media notice?


Benghazi-Gate: New Evidence White House Lied About Libya Terror Attack

by John Nolte 28 Sep 2012, 6:44 AM PDT 321 post a comment

Yesterday, we learned that within 24 hours of something they would spend nine days describing as a “spontaneous” protest gone bad, the Obama Administration itself designated the attack on our Libyan consulate as a terrorist attack. And yet, days later, Obama would trot U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice out to all the Sunday shows to look the media and America in the eye with a wildly false story the White House had known for days just wasn’t true:

Intelligence sources said that the Obama administration internally labeled the attack terrorism from the first day in order to unlock and mobilize certain resources to respond, and that officials were looking for one specific suspect. The sources said the intelligence community knew by Sept. 12 that the militant Ansar al-Shariah and Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb were likely behind the strike.

Further, an official said, “No one … believed that the mortars, indirect and direct fire, and the RPGs were just the work of a mob — no one.”

And it wasn’t just Ambassador Rice telling us something our government knew wasn’t true. As this timeline proves, it was also White House spokesman Jay Carney, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and the President himself.

Today, thanks to some great reporting from the Daily Beast’s Eli Lake, we’re now learning that within hours of the Libyan attack, on monitored communications, U.S. intelligence overheard al-Qaeda militants celebrating their successful attack:

In the hours following the 9/11 anniversary attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, U.S. intelligence agencies monitored communications from jihadists affiliated with the group that led the attack and members of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), the group’s North African affiliate.

In the communications, members of Ansar al-Sharia (AAS) bragged about their successful attack against the American consulate and the U.S. ambassador, according to three U.S. intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast anonymously because they were not authorized to talk to the press.

As Charles Krauthammer pointed out last night during Brett Baier’s Fox News’ roundtable, the explanation for the White House cover up is quite simple: At their convention, Team Obama had just completed three days of spiking the bin Laden football and reassuring America that al-Qaeda had been decimated by smart power. Then it all blew up in their face. The Middle East exploded and al-Qaeda successfully executed a pre-planned assassination of our Libyan ambassador.

What to do?

What to do?

Well, when you have the media completely on your side, you use them as co-conspirators. So as the media distracted from the attack by relentlessly hammering Romney over his criticism of the Cairo Embassy apology, the Obama administration fabricated a fairy tale that would avoid game-changing headlines that might read: Al-Qaeda Assassinates Libyan Ambassador; Security Questions Raised.

It’s obvious now that the Administration and media are hoping to run out the clock. That leaves it up to New Media and a few legitimate reporters in the MSM to drip-drip-drip out the truth surrounding a first class scandal –a scandal in three parts: 1) The lack of security at the consulate. 2) The lies about this being the result of a spontaneous demonstration. 3) the cover up of numbers one and two.

But if what I’m seeing today is any indication, the media remains as guilty as the Obama Administration in what’s now known as ‘Benghazi-Gate’. Because the more proof of the White House cover up that’s discovered, the more the media disengages from the story.

Solely because it might damage Obama’s reelection chances, the biggest story in the country right now is not being told.

Remember the chants, “Bush lied and people died”? Remember how the Left made this the topic of every conversation no matter what they were being interviewed about? Remember how the Left has always taken anything conservatives say and try to twist it into a lie or misrepresentation? Have you been listening about what the White House and all their puppets have explained away the attack in Benghazi and the murder of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans?

Have you been paying attention to all their “Hummina, hummina, hummina” RE-explanations since? (Don’t know what Hummina, hummina, hummina is? Those moments in all our lives where we find ourselves with our hands in the proverbial “cookie-jar”, our brains go into neutral, and all that can come out of our mouths is, “Hummina, hummina, hummina”.)


Once again we have the Political Left refusing to admit they were wrong. With DELIBERATE MOTIVES they went out and told lie after lie about what happened. Now the truth is out and they refuse to answer any questions, but all the puppets are barking about Romney. What???????????????????????

Bottom line; The Obama Regime refuses to admit they had their proverbial pants down while they were focusing on re-election. They knew that the area was unstable and that something would happen, NOT MAYBE, BUT WOULD HAPPEN. Instead of getting them extra protection, they prepared TO GO ON THE VIEW. Then they made another deliberate decision to lie about it all and blame an innocuous trailer to a film that does not exist.

Why would anyone vote for a group of people who cannot tell the truth?

Why would you deliberately side with the Political Left when they do not represent any of the values you hold dear?

Why continue to support a political party that deliberately keeps its dependent underclass UNDER?

Why would anyone vote for a Democrat knowing they deliberately cheat at the ballot box stuffing them with deceased people’s votes, illegal aliens votes, voting at multiple voting precincts, station scary looking people at voting places who are preventing people they don’t like from voting, and so on, and so on, and so one.

Is this the last free election of the United States of America?

Clever Disarming of the Constituents

I was discussing current events with my dad on Sunday and the subject of the political Left’s clever development of their Dependent Underclass came up. They started out with President Johnson’s “Poor”, and have added the illegal aliens, Hispanics in general, the Welfare Roles, students that have been programmed by the radical Leftist Professors occupying most of the teaching positions in America’s colleges and those that are just plan ignorant of politics (see Howard Stern’s latest on the street interviews). They make up around 40% of the population and can generally be expected to vote Democrat no matter who is running.

I was reminded of some interviews of attendees of the DNC saying that they welcome everyone into the DNC, EXCEPT, Evangelicals, “gun-toting hicks from the South”, anyone with the NRA, anyone with the “Tea Party”, and “those hate filled, intolerant conservatives.” When asked if they approved of guns and think our nation needs tougher gun laws, they answer was always a resounding, “YES!”

That is when my dad made the observation that the DNC has made gun ownership so onerous that they have successfully disarmed their own party. So, if the suppositions are correct, and President Obama makes himself to be Dictator Obama, they have half the population already disarmed and unable to defend themselves against a government turned hostile.

Now, ask again about why gun sales are not only up across America, but in some places, record-setting sales.

The suppositions are beginning to sound more and more plausible. What do you think?

Obama announces the 2012 launch of African Americans for Obama

Talk about dividing a country.

What do you think would have happened if a Caucasian president had ever produced and published a You Tube video for ALL WHITE PEOPLE to unite for a WHITE PRESIDENT?


Obama announces the 2012 launch of African Americans for Obama.

This is what racism smells like. It can’t be explained away.

Would you vote for a white person who did this? I wouldn’t, and I think they would be run right out of town if they tried it. This is just some food for thought if you’re pondering your vote in November.

Can you imagine Romney putting out a call for all the white brothers and sisters to vote for him because he’s white and so are they?

If this video is not alarming to you, okay.

If you are offended by what’s taking place, please share this with others. <>

Something Is Wrong

By on 9.24.12 @ 8:27AM

Don’t look now, but Islam is becoming the MSM’s (Main Stream Media) official religion of America.

Now, it’s not just that no one bats an eye at the amazing truth that the United States is beaming TV ads all over Pakistan apologizing for a derogatory Internet trailer for a nonexistent movie demeaning the being that Muslims call “The Prophet Mohammed.” No one in the MSM even slightly hints that doing the kowtow in the same country that sheltered Osama bin Laden to a group that reveled in, delighted in the terrorism against American civilians and still provides the framework for the terrorist Haqqani network, might be humiliating and an insult to the memory of the great Americans who were murdered just last week in Libya.

No, we just take it in stride that our President and our Secretary of State will apologize to the people who hate us and want us dead. That’s not what I am referring to.

I am referring to something worse: Have you noticed that in the past few years, and especially in the past few weeks since the murder of the Ambassador and his guards and colleague in Benghazi (a city that Erwin Rommel loved and whose inhabitants he praised), whenever the New York Times refers to Mohammed, they always call him, without quotation marks, The Prophet Mohammed, as if everyone with any sense understands that OF COURSE Mohammed is The One True Prophet and that it’s just understood that Mohammed is The Prophet.

I see this in other news outlets and on TV, too. Sober-looking newsmen and newswomen mention Mohammed as The Prophet Mohammed. No ifs, ands or buts. I hear it on the BBC World Service, too. Now, if Muslims want to believe that Mohammed is The Prophet, God bless them. Fine and dandy. If anyone wants to believe that, good luck to him or her. But why does our mainstream media here in the USA, an overwhelmingly Christian country, refer to Islam’s prophet as “The Prophet”?

Have you ever seen any major newspaper here in the USA refer to Jesus Christ as “The Son of God, God Incarnate, The Lord Jesus Christ”? Can you imagine the New York Times running a story about a crucifix resting in urine at an “art gallery” as an offense against “The Lord Jesus, Son of God”? Can you imagine any large newspaper in this country running a story about the Pope and referring to him as “The Holy Father, The Bridge Between Heaven and Earth”? Or about Mary, as “Holy Mary, Mother of God”? It would never happen.

But somehow, probably because the people writing the articles and editing them or the producers on TV news shows fear being beheaded — and who doesn’t? — we have adopted in our media the Muslim assertion that Mohammed is The Prophet while giving other religious figures the back of our media hand.

This is frightening. We are not supposed to be doing obeisance to a religious group that has many adherents who want us dead. We are not, as journalists, supposed to be labeling anyone as “The” Prophet. But somehow, it’s happening. The MSM has become a voice for Islam.

Hitler saw it long ago. Terror and fear of violence can bring about amazing changes in people’s behavior. So can a misguided political correctness and self-loathing for the greatest nation on earth.

I overheard a conversation between two women at a dining table just yesterday. One said, “I don’t care what anyone says, Obama is a Muslim” (she has said it before) and the other said, “He’s not a Muslim. He’s just stupid.” I didn’t say anything to them. I am just telling you, these do not feel like normal days. They feel like latter days.

There is just a feeling in the air, a look in the sky at dusk, a look on people’s faces. Fear is everywhere. Mr. Obama cannot lose this election unless enough people believe it’s within their power to stop the ticking of the clock, and I do not feel that groundswell. Not at all. When the American media turns its back on our own religions of tolerance and adores a religion of intolerance, times are upside down.

The MSM says it’s all fine, trust The Prince of Grant Park, Chicago. But I have always preferred the admonition, “Put not your trust in princes.” Something is wrong.

Empty Chair

No spontaneous attack during a demonstration. No demonstration was going on and confirmed today by Reuters News Video released today.
New Political Head of Libya labeled the attack as TERRORIST. President Obama said he was wrong and blamed it on a video.
Embassy security and protection woefully inadequate. WHY???????????
Chants of the attackers were the same as those of the rioters in multiple cites; “Obama, Obama. We are all Osama”.
Chants were heard, “Death to America”. No chants heard, “Death to the film maker.”
There are no reports of a film maker being burned in effigy, but many such burnings of President Obama.
The Obama administration and campaign have changed their explanation of events multiple times in one week.
Is it possible that this was a planned event on 9/11 and in response to “Osama bin Laden is Dead and GM is Alive”?
Could it be the simple answer that The Obama Administration made a terrible mistake by not listening to warnings coming from their own resources?
Could it be that they simply did not handle the situation correctly?
Could it be that the Obama Administration’s Foreign Policy has made the War on Terror worse?
Could it be that President Obama’s apology tour in 2009 emboldened our enemy knowing we had a President that would make excuses for them and not hold them accountable for their terrorist actions?
Could it be that President Obama is more pro-Islam and will not do, or say, anything that makes Islam look bad?
Could it be that we are looking at horrific compromises and the rise of Sharia Law in a Second President Obama term?
Why should we expect anything else?
