Not only is Gore arrogant, he's ignorant. - Al Gore blames Hurricane Sandy on 'global warming'

Gore at the "Shore"

PICKET: Al Gore blames Hurricane Sandy on 'global warming' - Washington Times

While it did not take long it was expected. Former vice president Al Gore put out a statement on his blog on Tuesday and blamed the intensity of Hurricane Sandy on "global warming pollution." :

The images of Sandy’s flooding brought back memories of a similar--albeit smaller scale-- event in Nashville just two years ago. There, unprecedented rainfall caused widespread flooding, wreaking havoc and submerging sections of my hometown. For me, the Nashville flood was a milestone. For many, Hurricane Sandy may prove to be a similar event: a time when the climate crisis—which is often sequestered to the far reaches of our everyday awareness became a reality.... blah blah blah ....

New York and New England were hit with powerful hurricanes in 1821 and 1938. In 1821, the hurricane was called, The Great September Gale. In 1938, the hurricane, aptly named the Long Island Expressslammed New York and New England with winds of up to 120 MPH. The Berkshire Eagle lists other hurricanes and tropical storms dating back to 1635 that have hit the east coast. 
Is Mr. Gore saying that these massive hurricanes were caused by some form of man-made global warming...really? Please.

Looting Arrests Made - Flash Mobs turned to Flash Looters

Looting in the wake of Hurricane Sandy 
The lowest people on earth. 

Looting Arrests Made - WSJ.com
October 30, 2012 
New York City Police arrested 13 people for crimes that included looting in Sandy's aftermath, law-enforcement officials said Tuesday.
Of the 13 confirmed arrests after the storm, most took place in areas of Brooklyn and Queens where police precincts had to be evacuated due to flooding, police said, adding that none of the crimes were violent and no officers or civilians were injured.
In the Rockaway section of Queens, a region that saw major storm damage, five people were arrested Tuesday for alleged crimes that included burglary, trespass, mischief and resisting arrest, an official said.
The 100th Precinct in the Rockaways was partially evacuated Monday as Sandy battered the neighborhood; in response, an official said, police set up a mobile command center Tuesday and arrests were being processed at a neighboring precinct.
On Coney Island in Brooklyn, matters were more difficult. The entire 60th Precinct was evacuated, forcing personnel to relocate to the 61st Precinct, the official said. Patrol Service Area 1, a precinct that covers public housing on Coney Island, was also evacuated Monday evening.

Constitution just gets in the way - Under the Gun

Totalitarianism begins with gun confiscation. Just look it up in history, start with Lenin and Stalin.

Under the Gun - Dave Kopel - National Review Online

Where are the most important opportunities and dangers for the Second Amendment in the congressional and gubernatorial races? Here’s a state-by-state rundown, including every gubernatorial and U.S. Senate election, plus all of the U.S. House races that Stuart Rothenberg does not classify as safe.
To summarize: The three gubernatorial races that are close and that feature major differences between the candidates on Second Amendment issues are Washington, Montana, and New Hampshire.
In the Senate, gun owners start off with a guaranteed gain of three seats on Election Night, regardless of which party wins, in Indiana, New Mexico, and North Dakota. In four states — Arizona, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Virginia — there are serious risks that seats could be taken by new senators hostile to gun rights. Plausible opportunities to gain seats for the Second Amendment exist in Maine, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin. In these eight swing Senate states considered together, the possibility of a net loss probably exceeds the possibility of a net gain.
As for the U.S. House, a rough estimate would be that if the net gain for Democrats is x, then the net loss for gun owners will be about one-half or two-thirds of x. In swing districts, most candidates are unwilling to forgo the 5 percent of the vote that can be lost by opposing Second Amendment rights. So, in these districts, candidates of both parties tend to support the Second Amendment. Thus, the net change in House composition on the gun issue tends to be smaller than the net party change in any given year.

Don't forget Obama - The Socialist Democrats: An Election Primer

These are the sworn and corrupt enemies of the U. S., yet they keep getting re-elected. These Communists cover their true label with various euphemisms, but they are still committed to our downfall.
Expose them! Get rid of them!

The Socialist Democrats: An Election Primer

By Matthew Vadum On October 30, 2012 
The socialist wing of the national Democratic Party is larger and probably more powerful than it has ever been.
But its numbers depend on how you define the term socialist and how you measure influence.
Labels can be misleading. Since the 1960s and the ascent of the so-called George McGovern/Jimmy Carter/Walter Mondale wing of the Democratic Party, being a socialist, or fairly close to a socialist, has become the norm in the party. The days in which a Democratic elected official could be slightly left-wing (i.e. favoring a mixed economy that was more capitalist than socialist) and at the same time pro-defense, as in the case of President Harry S. Truman and Sen. Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson, are long gone.
Nowadays it is generally safe to presume that a Democratic lawmaker is a socialist unless evidence suggests otherwise.
But the word socialist still carries with it a certain stigma in U.S. culture, even in the age of Barack Hussein Obama, easily the most radical president the United States has ever seen.
Even former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) resists calling herself a socialist even though she clearly supports that ideology’s planks. And even though Pelosi is not a member of the CPC, like its members she occupies a parallel universe in which the United States is evil, racist, imperialistic, and all the other unpleasant adjectives that Marxists apply to this country.
Only the bolder members of Congress, often those in safe Democratic districts, tend to openly associate themselves with socialism.
Members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus are undoubtedly socialists, though most shy away from the label. The CPC has long had ties to the far-left Institute for Policy Studies, Democratic Socialists of America (the largest Marxist group in the country), and the Communist Party USA.
The CPC, which is co-chaired by Reps. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Raul M. Grijalva (D-AZ), has 75 members in the U.S. House of Representatives, including two nonvoting delegates, Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC), and Donna Christian-Christensen (D-VI). This means that of the 190 Democratic House members with voting privileges, 73, or nearly two-fifths of all House Democrats, are members of the radical caucus.
Even though Democrats no longer control the House, because CPC members comprise a large percentage of the Democratic conference, the socialists within that conference have greater sway over what direction the Democratic leadership takes in Congress. Radical Democrats have fewer moderate Democrats, such as members of the increasingly endangered Blue Dog Caucus, to struggle against in policy fights.
The CPC is a collection of far-left lawmakers in Congress. It includes self-described socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) who founded the caucus in 1991 when he was a House member. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH), star of a newly uncovered ACORN video, was a member of the CPC when he was a representative but is no longer a member as a senator – but he’s still a socialist, by any reasonable definition of the term.
CPC members support President Obama’s goal of fundamentally transforming America, turning it into a socialist nation like France or Greece, regardless of the limitations on governmental reach specified in the U.S. Constitution.

He thought it came from a relative - Obama accepts ‘Osama bin Laden’ donations

Scruples, we ain't got no stinking scruples!
This, in reality, was a trap that exposed the little concern Obama and his administration have for ethics. This is similar to the expos√© made on Eric Holder's refusal to enact voter photo ID that allowed a white fellow to obtain Holder's voting ballot.

Obama accepts ‘Osama bin Laden’ donations
 AARON KLEIN 10-29-12

No block to foreign money – not even from dead terrorists

WASHINGTON – Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol and proxy server, a disposable credit card and a fake address, “Osama bin Laden” has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama’s presidential re-election campaign.
The “Bin Laden” donations, actually made by WND staff, included a listed occupation of “deceased terror chief” and a stated employer of “al-Qaida.”
“Bin Laden” is currently set up on the official campaign website to contribute more to Obama’s campaign. The name is also registered as a volunteer.
Since the “foreign” contribution was sent, “Bin Laden’s” email address has received several solicitations from Obama’s campaign asking for more donations.

BREAKING: HMS Bounty Sinks Off N.C. Coast, 2 Crew Missing | WSAV TV

"The HMS Bounty, a 180-foot, three-mast tall ship, was last marked about 90 miles southeast of Hatteras.
The ship has sunk, according to the Coast Guard at 8:45 a.m. Monday.
Just before 8 a.m., the Facebook page for the HMS Bounty says 14 of the 16 people who had to abandon their ship have been hoisted to safety.
There have been conflicting reports on how many people were onboard. The manifest reportedly listed 16 people, and that's the number the Coast Guard has."
WITN-TV Article: http://www.witn.com/home/headlines/Coast-Guard-Rescue-Underway-Now-16-People-In-Lifeboats-Off-NC-Coast-176228331.html
Seventeen people aboard a replica of the HMS Bounty abandoned ship early Monday while stranded at sea off the North Carolina coast, the U.S. Coast Guard said in a press release.
"The 17 person crew donned cold water survival suits and life jackets before launching in two 25-man lifeboats with canopies," the Coast Guard said in a statement.
The ship issued a distress signal late Sunday after taking on water, the U.S. Coast Guard said.
The owner of the 180-foot, three mast ship -- which was built for the 1962 Marlon Brando movie, "Mutiny on the Bounty" -- lost communication with the crew and alerted the Coast Guard to the situation.

Father Of Slain SEAL Tyrone Woods Slams "Cowards" At White House - Tyrone Woods

Election priority expose Cowardice and Feet of Clay

Father Of Slain SEAL Tyrone Woods Slams "Cowards" At White House - Tyrone Woods - Fox Nation
October 28, 2012

HANNITY: And your son first got involved, was told to stand down after they heard shots at approximately 9:40 p.m. Now, as I understand it, it wasn't until about 4:00 a.m. the next day that your son after he had rescued other people was still fighting in this attack and it was then that he took on mortar fire?
WOODS: That is my understanding. For seven hours the cowards in the White House were watching something they knew that was going to potentially kill those 30 people and potentially kill my son and they refused to do that even though they had a moral duty to send support they chose not to. This is not the way the SEALs operate. The SEALs are an honorable unit and Ty was honorable by disobeying the powers in the White House that told him not to rescue those lives.
HANNITY: Your son was told to stand down. Here's a Navy SEAL, with all the time and training and effort, he risks his military career, risks his life for seven full hours, rescues all these people. Multiple requests throughout the entire period go, it is being watched in Real Time and nobody sends any help. I can't fathom this. And then we are told the president goes out there for two weeks and couldn't admit that this is a terrorist attack. Why do you think that he tried to blame it on this video or denied that it was a terror attack?
WOODS: You know, unfortunately, Sean, we have a generation of liars who have no moral background. Hopefully my son's sacrifice and his moral courage and his moral strength will encourage our next generation to be completely different. That we will change our direction. That we will raise up a new generation of true American heroes such as my son who have moral courage and who are not liars like too many people in authority are nowadays.
HANNITY: I know you met the president and you met Hillary Clinton, when they had this service.
WOODS: That is, correct. At Andrew's Air Force Base. ....

Its hard to make someone as small as he is smaller - The Incredible Shrinking President

Exposed total incompetence! m/r

"Benghazi bungle requires act of urgent political hygiene"

The Incredible Shrinking President - Mark Steyn - National Review Online

By Mark Steyn
October 26, 2012 7:30 P.M.

Two videos distill the meaning of a campaign, and a presidency.

‘We’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video,” said Hillary Clinton. No, not the person who made the video saying that voting for Barack Obama is like losing your virginity to a really cool guy. I’ll get to that in a moment. But Secretary Clinton was talking about the fellow who made the supposedly Islamophobic video that supposedly set off the sacking of the Benghazi consulate. And, indeed, she did “have that person arrested.” By happy coincidence, his bail hearing has been set for three days after the election, by which time he will have served his purpose. These two videos — the Islamophobic one and the Obamosexual one — bookend the remarkable but wholly deserved collapse of the president’s reelection campaign.

You’ll recall that a near-month-long attempt to blame an obscure YouTube video for the murder of four Americans and the destruction of U.S. sovereign territory climaxed in the vice-presidential debate with Joe Biden’s bald assertion that the administration had been going on the best intelligence it had at the time. By then, it had been confirmed that there never had been any protest against the video, and that the Obama line that Benghazi had been a spontaneous movie review that just got a little out of hand was utterly false. The only remaining question was whether the administration had knowingly lied or was merely innocently stupid. The innocent-stupidity line became harder to maintain this week after Fox News obtained State Department e-mails revealing that shortly after 4 p.m. Eastern, less than a half hour after the assault in Benghazi began, the White House situation room knew the exact nature of it.

We also learned that, in those first moments of the attack, a request for military back-up was made by U.S. staff on the ground but was denied by Washington. It had planes and special forces less than 500 miles away in southern Italy — or about the same distance as Washington to Boston. They could have been there in less than two hours. Yet the commander-in-chief declined to give the order. So Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods fought all night against overwhelming odds, and died on a rooftop in a benighted jihadist hellhole while Obama retired early to rest up before his big Vegas campaign stop. “Within minutes of the first bullet being fired the White House knew these heroes would be slaughtered if immediate air support was denied,” said Ty Woods’s father, Charles. “In less than an hour, the perimeters could have been secured and American lives could have been saved. After seven hours fighting numerically superior forces, my son’s life was sacrificed because of the White House’s decision.”

Why would Obama and Biden do such a thing? Because to launch a military operation against an al-Qaeda affiliate on the anniversary of 9/11 would have exposed the hollowness of their boast through convention week and the days thereafter — that Osama was dead and al-Qaeda was finished.

The religion of a piece of the truth, but mostly lies. Obama's Taqqiya Unravels

He, in truth, is unfit to be President and even considered as an American. Obama is duplicitous and following Islamic law, the religion of lies:
Lying for the purpose of jihad (known as "taqqiya") is not only allowed, but an obligation to be proud of and even serves as a reason to blame the enemies of Islam for one's lies. Sharia law states: "Lying is obligatory if the purpose is obligatory." Muslim clerics have no problem in lying not just to the non-Muslim world but even to the Muslim masses, since Islam also allows Muslims to lie in order to bring Muslims together in harmony and friendship.

Articles: Obama's Taqqiya Unravels
10-28-12  Nonie Darwish 

I have never entertained the idea that Obama was a Muslim and always believed he was a socialist. But Obama's behavior over the last four years regarding Islam has convinced me that Obama has a Socialist/Islamic centered worldview -- a combination that is not uncommon in many parts of the Muslim world.
Having been a journalist in Egypt for six years in the seventies, I have witnessed socialism with an Islamic twist to be a popular political ideology, especially amongst Arab journalists and intellectuals. Socialism, and even communism, have managed to survive in the ruthless Islamic political system as an alternative to full-fledged Sharia. The two ideologies have blended together in cases including the Baath Party in Syria and Iraq and socialist regimes in Egypt and Yemen. One major difference between the two ideologies is that Islam uses Allah, while socialism uses atheism, to fight the God of Christianity. Free democracies, such as the United States, are alien to Islam and socialism both because they regard government as a servant of the people and hold that human rights are granted by God and not by government or the code of Sharia.
Both Sharia and socialism are united in their envy of Western society and need to change it. That is why Obama has become the savior of both Islam and socialism. He embodies both ideologies. The claim that Obama is a Christian was a silly joke, but a necessary lie for the greater cause of changing America to fit the goals of both creeds.
Obama became the One, the savior of both Islam and socialists.

Lost without Shelby Foote! Ken Burns: Wrong on Obama

Ken Burns made a lucky find in in Shelby Foote. His PBS "Civil War" Series would have been lost without Shelby Foote. So much so, Burns even used him in his "Baseball" show. Burns, typically and outside of the Foote segments, relied heavily on historical novel "The Killer Angels" and race issues. His "Civil War" would have been lost without Foote.
The androgynous looking and acting Burns made several mediocre series that followed and were as milk-toast Burns and mostly thinly veiled Democrat sycophancy. He needs to suck-up to Democrats for PBS funding. m/r

Ken Burns: Wrong on Obama - By Deroy Murdock - The Corner - National Review Online

Historical filmmaker Ken Burns recently penned a column for New Hampshire’s Union Leader titled, “Why I am voting for Barack Obama.” Burns rehearses several of the most common arguments for Obama’s re-election, and in doing so, he unwittingly exposes the flimsiness of the rationale for subjecting America to four more years of Obamaism.
• “President Obama took office at a time when lax regulation of the financial industry had brought us to the brink of a complete collapse,” Burns writes. “All Mitt Romney seems to offer is a return to the very policies that got us into this mess in the first place.”
Burns echoes Obama’s favorite rhetorical flourish, namely to blame his GOP predecessor for America’s every ill.
President G. W. Bush’s overspending and regulatory excesses certainly helped get us “into this mess in the first place.” However, the biggest oil slick on which America spun out before tumbling into the ditch pre-dated Bush; it was Big Government liberalism.

Obama Stoops, Doesn’t Conquer - Charles Krauthammer - National Review Online
10-25-12 By Charles Krauthammer
The president sounded like the challenger in Monday night’s debate.

“L’√©tat, c’est moi.”— Louis XIV
“This nation. Me.”— Barack Obama, third presidential debate
Okay, Okay. I’ll give you the context. Obama was talking about how “when Tunisians began to protest, this nation, me, my administration, stood with them.” Still. How many democratic leaders (de Gaulle excluded) would place the word “me” in such regal proximity to the word “nation”?
Obama would have made a very good Bourbon. He’s certainly not a very good debater. He showed it again Monday night.
Obama lost. His tone was petty and small. Arguing about Iran’s nuclear program, he actually said to Mitt Romney, “While we were coordinating an international coalition to make sure these sanctions were effective, you were still invested in a Chinese state oil company that was doing business with the Iranian oil sector.” You can’t get smaller than that. You’d expect this in a city-council race. But only from the challenger. The sitting councilman would find such an ad hominem beneath him.
That spirit led Obama into a major unforced error.

Biden visit to cheese shop irritates woman
Oct 26, 2012 - full short post

KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) -- A word of advice to candidates campaigning in Wisconsin: Don't get between voters and their cheese.
Vice President Joe Biden seemed to irritate a shopper at the Mars Cheese Castle in Kenosha on Friday when he caused a disruption with a quick visit at the famous landmark just off Interstate 94.
As Biden cheerily greeted customers, a 30-something woman tried to explain what was happening to her young daughter. The woman said -- quote -- "This is a battleground state. They're trying to win it. I just need some limburger cheese."
Biden was shown such delicacies as chocolate cheese and 13-year-old cheddar.
Biden commented to general manager Tyson Whermeister, "That's great, man."

Politics: Al Gore's Current TV putting itself up for sale | CainTV

October 26th, 2012

By ROBERT LAURIE - As usual, left-wing media outlets only make money when they're being liquidated
Founded in 2005 by Al Gore, Current TV quickly made a name for itself as a go-to source for environmental incoherence, Democrat lunacy, and far-left diatribes.  If providing an outlet for liberal kooks was the goal, it succeeded admirably.  However, if it was trying to attract viewers, well, it's had some difficulty.  Now, it's up for sale.
CEO Joel Hyatt recently told the New York Post that “Current has been approached many times by media companies interested in acquiring our company. This year alone, we have had three inquiries. As a consequence, we thought it might be useful to engage expertise to help us evaluate our strategic options.”
That's big-time TV exec speak that roughly translates as "We're getting ready to dump this turkey."
The network began its life by focusing on young, high school and college age, liberals.  Predictably, its early crusade against global warming failed to attract eyeballs, so it began to reinvent itself as a standard, left-wing, talking head channel - packed with a host of zany pundits that even MSNBC had rejected.

Isn't that what Democrats do? Jeffco ‘Democrat Of The Year’ Convicted Of Felony Theft

Jeffco ‘Democrat Of The Year’ Convicted Of Felony Theft « CBS Denver
October 26, 2012 

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4)- The woman named “Democrat of The Year” this year by the Jefferson County Democratic Party has been convicted of felony theft by a Jefferson County jury for stealing from a developmentally disabled 71-year-old woman.
“The jury did right,” said Cindy Maxwell, an advocate for the victim.
On Thursday, a jury convicted 66-year-old Estelle Carson of felony identify theft and felony theft from an at risk adult for stealing checks from the woman and using them to pay her own cable, cell phone and internet bills.
The victim is partially blind, developmentally disabled, has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. She is on a fixed income of $596 per month according to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office.
Nearly as bothersome as the theft itself to Maxwell and other supporters of the victim, is the fact the Jefferson County Democratic Party was made aware of the ongoing criminal investigation and honored Carson anyway.

The most sinister President of all. The attack on the American compounds in Benghazi exposed the truth about Obama in an instant. On September 11, 2012, the sacred Memorial Date of 9/11, 2001, Obama ignored all prior and explicit warnings of terror attacks, refused to rescue Ambassador Chris Stevens and Sean Smith, who was killed with the Ambassador. He also refused to save Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods who manned machine guns for hours on the roof of their headquarters in an attempt to save lives from the brutal, and planned out by an Al Qaeda cell, terror attack.
These four men died because the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, had part of a campaign slogan: Osama Died!
Killing Osama bin Laden was a no brainer, yet he was reported to even be indecisive at that. This, of course, is contrary to his narrative and taking singular full credit for the Navy Seals raid.
But the deaths in Benghazi exposed the total flimsiness of all that makes up the foreign policy of Obama's Administration. It exposed that Al Qaeda was ready, willing and able to attack American personnel at will in the middle east (contrary to what Obama was professing and campaigning on), that his leading from behind in Libya and support for the "Arab Spring" had turned into a "Bedouin Winter" under the rule of the precursor to Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and that it fully exposed the vacillation and lack of any bravery or decisiveness in Obama in international crises! 
It did not follow Obama's script leading up to the election. If it was blamed on an hither to unknown "Islamaphobic" video, Obama, with the help of his biased media, may hold of exposing his feet of clay and utter failure in the middle east. Not to mention his responsibility for four truly brave men. m/r

The most charitable conclusion one can draw is that during the attack the Obama White House froze under pressure, unable or unwilling to act, as the president geared up for a fundraising event in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada.
The less charitable, but more likely conclusion, is that the White House made a conscious, calculated decision to let American officials perish overseas, fully expecting the incurious pro-Obama media to ignore what really happened.


 By Daniel Greenfield On October 26, 2012
Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, said in an interview, “And apparently even the State Department had a live stream and was aware of their calls for help.  This was my son, he wasn’t even there.  He was at a safe house about a mile away.  He got the distress call.  He heard them crying for help.  That’s why he and Glenn risked their lives to go that extra mile just to take care of the situation.  And I’m sure that she wasn’t the only one that received that distress call: “Come save our lives.”
When I heard that there’s a very good chance that the White House as well as other members of the military knew what was going on, and obviously someone had to say, “Don’t go rescue them.” Because every person in the military, their first response is, “We’re going to go rescue them.” We need to find out who it was that gave that command.”
Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that three urgent requests from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. Consulate and subsequent attack nearly seven hours later were denied by officials in the CIA chain of command — who also told the CIA operators to “stand down” rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.
Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When they heard the shots fired, they radioed to inform their higher-ups to tell them what they were hearing. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. An hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to “stand down.”
Woods, Doherty and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the Consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The quick reaction force from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the Consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.
At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.
Now we know who is taking responsibility for denying support to the consulate and the safe house.

Chris Stevens’ Last Words

By Matthew Vadum On October 26, 2012 
Obama administration emails leaked to news organizations about last month’s terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, paint a shocking picture of the administration’s incompetence and callousness.
During the military-style assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, four American officials died, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. On the day of the attack, a few hours before he was raped and murdered by adherents of the so-called religion of peace, Stevens wrote in an email that a local Libyan commander in Benghazi “expressed growing frustration with police and security forces (who were too weak to keep the country secure) …”
It was a sad, prescient understatement.
For two weeks after the attack the Obama administration said over and over and over again that the incident in Benghazi was inspired by a low-quality anti-Islam video on YouTube. Eventually the administration acknowledged it was a terrorist attack.
But those who have been following the disturbing developments in Libya with an open mind know the Obama administration has been lying about what happened there from the start.
The most charitable conclusion one can draw is that during the attack the Obama White House froze under pressure, unable or unwilling to act, as the president geared up for a fundraising event in fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada.
The less charitable, but more likely conclusion, is that the White House made a conscious, calculated decision to let American officials perish overseas, fully expecting the incurious pro-Obama media to ignore what really happened.
We now know that U.S. officials monitored an audio feed of the Benghazi attack in real time, as CBS News reported. During the attack, U.S. forces were in place in nearby Sicily, an hour or so away, but the order to fly to Benghazi in an attempt to rescue the besieged staff at the consulate never came.
That order was never issued by President Obama, probably because he knew it would reveal his policy of appeasement towards Islamic totalitarians to be in shambles as the Middle East and North Africa fell into the hands of America’s enemies.

The Auto Bailout Failure

posted in Meltdown | 10-24-12  full short post

new paper from the Buckeye Institute affirms what the Antiplanner has saidabout the Obama administration’s “bailout” of the auto industry: it did more harm than good. “The auto bailout transferred over $25 billion in taxpayer dollars to the United Autoworkers labor union,” says the paper, “while actually hindering the kind of ‘fresh start’ that is necessary for the industry’s future success and that normal bankruptcy procedures, without political meddling, provide.”
“When a public policy produces worse results than doing nothing, it properly should be described as a failure,” the paper adds. “The Obama Administration auto bailout is such a failure.”
The administration’s “claim that the auto bailout saved 1.5 million jobs is demonstrably false,” the paper continues, as it is based on an assumption that, not only would GM and Chrysler have completely shut down without the bailout, so would Ford, Toyota, Honda, and other U.S. factories owned by foreign carmakers. As the Antiplanner has done, the paper also accuses the administration of violating the rule of law in order to favor some interests (unions) over others (creditors).
By “injecting politics into the reorganization process,” the paper concludes, the administration actually hindered the industry’s recovery. The lesson is not that a Bush or Romney would have done any better, but that future administration’s should keep their hands off of floundering industry’s and let the bankruptcy process and rule of law sort things out.

Ted Turner: Military suicides outnumbering combat deaths is 'good' | Fox News

October 25, 2012

CNN founder Ted Turner, in arguing for a greater role for the United Nations as the world's policeman and condemning U.S. military spending, said recently that rise in military suicides in relation to combat deaths is a "good" development.
Turner made the comments in an appearance on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." The interview aired Oct. 19, but the comment about military suicides was highlighted Thursday by Brietbart.com.

The Big Leaker - The Dishonorable Colin Powell

He worked to open the

The spigot of underhanded anti-Bush leaks to the press, putting politics before duty, he now puts color before reason. 
Too bad, but now he's gushed himself away in his own effluent. m/r

The American Spectator : The Spectacle Blog : The Dishonorable Colin Powell

So.... Colin Powell, fulminating about the economy (as if he is an expert on that!) and avoiding all discussion of the incompetence and dishonesty of the Obama administration's handling of Libya, has endorsed Barack Obama again. Gee, what a surprise. This is a man still playing out his personal picque at some imagined sleights during the administration of Bush 43.
But this is a man without honor. This is a man who allowed the spending of millions of dollars in a witch-hunt of a law-enforcement investigation even while personally knowing that his own top aide had been the one who inadvertently leaked the name of a second-tier CIA agent with a dishonest and histrionic husband. One word from Colin Powell, and the "Valerie Plame" case would have come to an end with no prosecutions, but with a few days, maybe just one or two news cycles, of public admonishment of his office for its carelessness. But no... Powell remained silent, thus settling some score with vice presidential chief of staff I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby and his boss, Vice President Richard Cheney -- letting Libby twist in the wind for an alleged cover-up of a non-crime for which Libby himself wasn't even responsible, but for which Powell's aide Dick Armitage was culpable instead. (Libby was convicted on a highly dubious perjury charge, based on a years-old conversation with newsman Tim Russert that Russert remembered differently. This was the same Tim Russert whose own memory had been shown to be horrifically wrong in another major court case, but who suddenly was supposed to be perfectly inerrant. Meanwhile, famed newsman Bob Woodward produced notes that Woodward himself said might tend to support Libby's recollection -- but no matter.)
So, in order to protect a tiny nick to his reputation and that of his aide, Armitage, and in order to achieve a "gotcha" against a bureaucratic opponent, Libby, Powell was willing to let Libby have his career ruined and possibly his freedom curtailed (he faced possible prison time). That is pathetically dishonorable behavior from Powell, and it discredits anything else he ever does. Today's endorsement comes from a man who built most of his reputation on one memorable turn of phrase about "cutting off the head" of the Iraqi army in 1991, but whose diplomacy so famously failed in gaining cooperation from longtime ally Turkey for the 2003 liberation of Iraq -- a failure that set back the mission in ways that harmed it for the next two years. 
Headline: Failed, Dishonorable Former Diplomat Endorses Obama; Cites (Failed) Economy as Reason.
Nobody should give a fig about today's endorsement. Nobody.

All politically driven lies to cover up that an Al-Qaeda Ally Hit Benghazi

Obama did one thing right, tried to take all the credit, then created a big myth about Al-Qaeda being on the run. This terror attack and murders subverted this one positive item Obama could claim in his reason for re-election narrative. Without it, his remained as an empty, incompetent presidency.

Obama White House Knew Al-Qaeda Ally Hit Benghazi

By Matthew Vadum On October 25, 2012 @ 12:57 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 4 Comments
Two hours after last month’s deadly assault on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, the Obama White House knew the operation had been orchestrated by Muslim terrorists with ties to al-Qaeda, new evidence demonstrates.
But that grim information failed to deter President Obama, who has consistently been more interested in golfing than in attending security briefings, from hopping onto Air Force One on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11 and jetting off to Las Vegas for a campaign fundraiser.
U.S. officials reportedly monitored an audio feed of the Benghazi attack in real time, CBS News reports. FBI and State Department officials have also reviewed security camera footage recovered from the site. During the attack, U.S. forces were in place in nearby Sicily but the order to fly to Benghazi in an attempt to rescue the besieged staff at the consulate never came.
For a fortnight the Obama administration strenuously maintained the fiction that the incident in Benghazi, a terrorist stronghold, was a spontaneous popular uprising somehow inspired by an Ed Wood-quality anti-Islam video on YouTube that hardly anyone watched. Eventually the administration was forced to admit that what happened in that Libyan city was carried out by Islamic terrorists.
Leaked State Department emails dated Sept. 11, 2012, that were published yesterday show that U.S. officials knew soon after the attack that Ansar al-Sharia, a Libyan terrorist group linked to al-Qaeda, had claimed responsibility for killing four American officials including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.
The emails were sent to various national security platforms representing as many as 400 U.S. national security, military, and diplomatic officials almost as the attack was underway and concluding. Fox News reports that those platforms included the White House Situation Room, the Pentagon, the FBI, and the Director of National Intelligence.
The electronic missives were time-stamped in Eastern time and often bore the subheading SBU, which stands for “Sensitive But Unclassified.”
The initial email stamped 4:05 p.m. contains the subject line: “U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack (SBU).”

The Road to Serfdom and the Road to Socialism are parallel lanes of the same road

"empty platitudes seem instantaneously
familiar and yet irrelevant"
Fat cats in big business intertwined with Fatter Cats of Government sucking the the marrow from the "folks" and small businesses they regard as their serfs.
Is there a bigger fall in store for America, by design from treachery, from both within and without?
Is there a Dark Ages looming with a vacuum to be filled, this time by Muslim and Climate Change fanatics instead of a Catholic central hierarchy, as in the last "Dark Ages"? m/r

Are We Becoming Medieval? - Victor Davis Hanson - National Review Online

Why is there today a nostalgia for localism? Shrinking Western populations with growing numbers of elderly and unemployed can no longer sustain their present level of redistributive taxation and entitlements. Europe, which can endure neither the disease of insolvency nor the supposed medicine of austerity, is only a decade ahead of what we should expect here in the United States, or what we see now in California — a construct more than a state, where the Central Valley is to the coast as Mississippi is to Massachusetts.

Voters are also disgusted with government, and feel that their overseers are not even subject to the consequences of what they impose on others: We expect the Obamas to trash the 1 percent as they jet to Martha’s Vineyard, or a zillionaire John Kerry to demand higher taxes as he seeks to avoid them on his yacht, or an upscale French Socialist president to have a home on the Mediterranean — or, on the other side of the ledger, social-conservative elites to speak and act like metrosexuals.
