On Benghazi ~

If you only go to one site about the events surrounding the Benghazi travesty, Blackfive is a good place for posts written by the guys who understand these things.

I can come from the place of being a Mom of a Soldier but the Blackfive bloggers have the intimate knowledge of such situations.

BIGGER THAN WATERGATE: PROOF THAT THE PRESIDENT IS LYING ABOUT BENGHAZI?

BEEP….BEEP….BEEP…..

Of course, I hope you do more reading on the murders of the four Americans in Benghazi and the despicable handling of them by this pathetic and very dangerous administration.  Fox News is the only media outfit that is really digging into this as the other media networks continue to shield their messiah by not reporting much about it, if at all.  After all, it’s 8 days until the election and Obama is sorely dropping in the polls (no matter what you may hear).  Since the state propagandists media is mostly ‘leaning forward’, they can’t take the chance of reporting the facts, just as they refused to vet, in any way, this incompetent, lying, statist and sorry-a$$ excuse of a Commander-in-Chief.

Just google Benghazi and find blog posts, columns and articles written by former military, former journalists (who still understand what that means) and writers who aren’t carrying Obama’s or Soros’s water.

It’s up to us to ferret out the facts and fight their cheating, lying ways.

Our kids in uniform are doing their duty every g-damn day in spite of a CinC, an administration and cabinet that have only disgust for those who serve (no matter how many times they screech, “But…we support the Troops!”) and put them at greater risk because of their politically correct insanity.

We must step up and fight for them as they fight for us here at home.

We cannot let these corrupt and morally-bankrupt wastes of oxygen get away with anymore of their evil agendas.  How many more people have to die before America gets it?  These people, and especially Obama, are not healthy for children and other living things, to paraphrase a popular anti-war slogan from my day.

They must be stopped and their Statist agenda eradicated.

This will NOT stand.

Elections have consequences.

When you vote in a charismatic (to too many) inexperienced narcissistic radical community agitator who hates America, the Constitution and would like to destroy both, which seems to be the only thing he is really, really good at besides campaigning, people die.

And that is the tragedy of the Progressive Liberal.

People who shouldn’t die, do just that.

Text: Obama’s Speech in Cairo

When you don’t name the enemy, people die.

When you apologize to the enemy, people die.

When you bend over backwards not to offend the (unnamed) enemy, people die.

When you tie the hands of our kids in uniform on the frontline, they die.

When political correctness is more important than holding the (unnamed) enemy responsible, people die.

When campaigning and all the addictive adulation that goes with it is more important than the people you are sworn to protect, people die.

When you have intelligence briefs phoned in, people die.

When your media flunkies cover your a$$, people die.

How the media turned Obama’s foreign policy bungle into a Romney gaffe

Their blood is on your hands – all of you associated with your administration.

This is the tragedy of America.

RECORDS: OBAMA SKIPPED ALL DAILY INTELLLIGENCE BRIEFINGS SINCE SEPT. 5

According to a recent study by the Government Accountability Institute, Mr. Obama has only attended 43.8 percent of his Presidential Daily Briefs in the first 1,225 days of his Administration.

The White House responded by claiming that President Obama reads daily intelligence reports, even if he does not attend the briefings personally.

Another campaign stop photo op morale booster for our Troops from Prezzie O ~ (Was he angry or was he just trying to look like what he thinks a strong but caring CinC should look like while speaking to the Troops?)

Can we say the enthusiasm level was pretty much stuck at respectful? (nothing less expected with our Military)

(Transcript of speech after the fold)

The story told at 20:00 is an up-chucker, just a warning. Not because of what the Soldier did (that is how it is) but for the chest thumping by this fake.

If I was a Soldier listening to this speech, I’d have to go and speak to a counselor or the Chaplain ~ just to lift up my spirits and renew my morale.

Between all the talk about the mental issues all our Military apparently have, or will have, the cloudy theme and the empty platitudes…I’d have to just go to my room, lie down and stare at the wall for awhile.  (or hit my favorite bar…)

Remember his 2010 visit?

President Obama Visits Troops at Fort Bliss

Watch his face – so disconnected from the words he’s saying and seemingly hard for him to get out.  Michele O is the same, though she’s better at playing the role of being a champion for all the struggling and tormented military families and their broken loved ones in uniform.

Can’t wait to see them exit the White House.

God knows, our battle-hardened and loyal Troops, our kids in uniform, deserve so much better.

Even though I had many disagreements with Pres Bush’s policies, I know that he was sincere in his support of our Troops and their families.  A comparison:

“The ad itself accurately portrays where this President is,” said Zinke (the former Navy SEAL who started the super PAC, Special Operations for America.) “It accurately portrays his core belief that America should not lead. This president is shaping America to be one of the followers, to relinquish our role as a world leader. I didn’t fight 23 years as a Navy SEAL to watch America bow to anybody.”

Emails…I Get Emails ~

Author: yankeemom  //  Category: Obama

Lots and lots of emails from Obama for America.  (They don’t seem to vet their email list much.)

One was from His Imperial Highnessness Dear Leader Himself ~ (I’m in italics)

Deborah –

When I’m out there talking to voters, we talk about what we’ve done, what we plan to do over the next four years, and why the other guys have dangerous plans to go back to the policies that failed America for almost a decade.  (lies)

But there is another question that keeps coming up, and you need to know about it: “Why do I see so many more ads for the other guys?” (strawman lie)

You don’t need me to tell you that the Romney campaign is outraising us — that billionaire ideologues and corporate interests are piling on tens of millions more in negative ads trashing us, and that all of it means that undecided voters in battleground states like Iowa could be seeing false, misleading, negative attacks at a rate almost twice as often as they hear from us.  (more lies)

Last week, when I was in Iowa, voters told me they were feeling it. The numbers back it up: Our side is getting outspent 2-to-1 on the air there. (liar!)

But the folks asking me about this don’t want an explanation — they want to know what I’m going to do about it.  (Heh. Good one, that.)

And the fact is that solving this problem is up to you.  (AGAIN, IT’S UP TO ME?!  I’M PAYING FOR 48% NON-TAXPAYERS AND A HELLUVA LOT OF ILLEGALS AND IT’S AGAIN UP TO ME??)

Close the gap on the air by making a donation of $5 or more now.

You’re getting this email because you know what the stakes are in this election. You know the facts about what we’ve done to prevent a deeper crisis and to start building an economy that works for the middle class. (Yeah – nothin’)

But for someone who’s not as engaged, these ads may be an important and possibly even primary source of information about the choice in this election. (if you can’t win fair – lie cheat and steal.)

So it’s a bad situation if 90 percent of them are false, negative attacks on us. (LOLOLOLOLOOOOL!!!! A bit of a stretch there, don’t you think?))

We’re losing this air war right now. (*snort*)

I don’t have as much time to campaign this time as I did in 2008, so this whole thing is riding on you making it happen. (Are you frickin kidding me??  What the hell else you been doing??  Oh. that’s right. Those were all “official” business trips, conveniently held at intimate high school and college campuses.)

Donate now to close the gap on the air:  (the gap is there because you hAVE SUCKED ALL THE OXYGEN OUT OF THE AIR WITH YOUR BS)

Thank you,

MY REPLY ~

Sorry BO…as a small business owner, I’m all tapped out for some *cough*your*cough*policies*cough* reason, bud.

You too, huh?  Funny that…

Then there’s this email from good ol’ Jimmy M.:

Deborah –

Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for president of the United States, just said this:

“No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”   (you all don’t have much of a sense of humor, do you?  Sarcastic wit goes right by you, huh?)

Take a moment or two to think about that, what he’s actually saying, and what it says about Mitt Romney.   (okay, I’ll bite – just what does it say about Mitt Romney, other than he’s being a bit sarcastic and making fun of all the birther stuff, which if I remember correctly was started by Hillary…and isn’t she one of yours?)

Then make a donation of $5 or more to re-elect Barack Obama today:  (This is supposed to be a good reason to reelect the Amateur in Chief??  You’re kidding, right?  You’re trying to be funny now, aren’t you?   No?  Oh.)

UPDATE:
Navy SEALs Hit Back at Pres. Obama’s ‘Condescending and Belittling’ Comments

~~~~~~~

If nothing else, the AP is consistent in it’s half-truth reporting and progressive shielding for the Great One:

Special operators to anti-Obama groups: zip it

By KIMBERLY DOZIER, AP Intelligence Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) — A group of retired special operations and CIA officers who claim President Barack Obama revealed secret missions and turned the killing of Osama bin Laden into a campaign centerpiece are coming under criticism from some of their own.

Some special operations officers say the activist veterans are breaking a sacred military creed: respect for the commander in chief.   (Myself ~ I respect the office, but definitely not the man.  I don’t see where he has done much to warrant that respect.)

“This is an unprofessional, shameful action on the part of the operators that appear in the video, period,” U.S. Army Special Forces Maj. Fernando Lujan wrote on his Facebook page, to a chorus of approval from colleagues.  (Read this to know a bit more about Maj. Lujan’s perspective. Sigh…it’s no wonder the AP talked to him.)

<…>

“This is not to criticize the president personally, and the president himself,” the group’s founder, former Navy SEAL Scott Taylor, said in an interview Tuesday. “But at the same time, we feel he is ultimately responsible for cracking down on these leaks.”   (The buck should stop at the CinC’s desk, but since this CinC is rarely at his desk, I guess that doesn’t pertain to Dear Leader.)

<…>

The head of U.S. Special Operations Command sees it differently.

“Make no mistake about it, it was the president of the United States that shouldered the burden for this operation, that made the hard decisions,” the leader of the raid, Adm. Bill McRaven, said at this summer’s Aspen Security Forum.  (Just goes to prove that there may be brass on their shoulders, but not so much elsewhere.  Politics triumphs over values these days ~ as well as our kids’ lives.)

<…>

Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., compared the group’s campaign to the “Swift Boat” attacks that questioned his service during the Vietnam War. Though later discredited, (Really????) the claims were partially blamed for unseating his 2004 presidential campaign. (Aw, come on, AP.  The only ones who were discredited were Kerry and some of the “witnesses” that lined up to bamboozle America about those who fought in Vietnam.  Hell, he didn’t even throw his own medals over the fence…)


But wait!  There’s more!!  From the “truth-tellers” over at barackobama.com, another addition to The Enemy List:

Swift Boat 2.0: Conservative groups behind false attacks on the President’s national security record

It is not surprising that the attacks these groups are launching lack any credibility. The President is committed to protecting our troops and our country’s security. The only way to mislead Americans about his record on national security is to resort to dishonest and overtly political smear campaigns that do a disservice to Americans who deserve to know the facts about the President’s record.

So says the lying kettle to the pot.

EDITORIAL: Swift-boating Obama

Veterans target the leaker-in-chief

President Obama is brushing off criticism from the Special Operations community over politicized national-security leaks and his exaggerated role in the Osama bin Laden takedown. Two new organizations — the Special Operations OPSEC Education Fund and Special Operations Speaks — have launched campaigns to highlight the president’s exploitation of the military for political gain.

“I don’t take these folks too seriously,” Mr. Obama said on Monday, but the criticism must be hitting a raw nerve. The Obama campaign quickly put up a webpage devoted to discrediting the groups.

Read more: EDITORIAL: Swift-boating Obama – Washington Times

“I don’t take these folks too seriously” ~ That is the problem right there.  The only person he takes seriously is himself.

Oh, and those who donate to his never-ending campaign.  But he’d still throw them under that big ol’ bus of his, if need be.

For those of us at home who have kids and loved ones in uniform, realizing that NO ONE is reporting the facts anymore, is enraging and crazy-making.

<<<>>>

Also ~ A good question:

Is the Administration ready to admit these attacks aren’t anomolies?

Bouhammer

What I want to highlight is a little add-on to the bottom of the story posted on FoxNews at www.foxnews.com/world/2012/08/21/us-military-chief-plane-hit-by-afghan-militants-at-air-base/#ixzz24BxfNuRw

So far this year, civilian and military leaders keep saying that these attacks are “anomolies”, “lone wolves” and “infiltrators” in order to downplay how serious an issue this is. But from reading the piece below it sounds to me like they are starting to indirectly admit that this is a serious issue.

About damn time.  But will anything positive come from it?

A Reminder About This CinC ~

It took OFA over 7 minutes to lie about spin the VFASA’s less than 2 minute ad.  And they even name The Jon Stewart Show and Mother Jones as viable sources!

*Sigh…*

One of the best comments under the video:

I hope Obama keeps the race clean and let the GOP show what haters they are.

Ummmm…doubt it.   But bless your li’l heart for thinking it.  Here, have another sip of the kool-aid, darlin’.

Hell’s Bells Are Ringing Loud and Clear ~

Author: yankeemom  //  Category: media bias, Obama

.

Nothing pisses off a Mom more than someone endangering her babies, even if they are legally adults and especially if they are wearing a uniform of the US Military.

And I’m pissed.

I have been reading about and watching this Community Organizer-Campaigner-Commander-in Chief’s actions towards our Finest young men and women the past 3+ years and find something to be enraged at damn near every day:  political photo ops for his aggrandizement, throwing good generals under the bus (like we have so many to just throw out),  sending his wife out to chastise our Troops on their eating habits and try to make them, as well as their families, appear victims and broken, exercising progressive social transformation experiments, giving out timelines for withdrawals, taking credit for their brave actions, using them as political hockey pucs, threatening their benefits, appeasing the enemy,…oh, I could go on and on.

But this business with the leaks is the proverbial straw.

If this doesn’t reek of an anti-American, Anti-Military ideology, nothing will.  Putting our Troops lives in danger to further one’s political agenda and election prospects is the last thing a true CinC would ever do.

Unfortunately, we do not have such a CinC.   We have an America-hating, Military-hating, the-ends-justify-the-means narcissistic Chicago politics thug, surrounded by yes-men and women.

Well, apparently there’s a plan to stop the leaks, now that they’ve been busted:

The Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, in consultation with the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs, will monitor all major, national media reporting for unauthorized disclosures of defense department classified information. The Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence will ensure that the appropriate component of the department has been tasked with investigating leaks and that the required legal referrals to the Department of Justice and Congressional notifications are made.

(From Foreign Policy)

And they are going to “monitor themselves“!

“When it comes to monitoring, we mean monitoring ourselves,” Little said. Asked if the department intends to track down those who leak information and punish them, Little said “I’m not going to label this a witch hunt at all.”

Oh, that makes me feel ever so much better with this admin – the One of such Transparency.

And now intelligence leaks have become a campaign issue more than a national security threat.  God, I dislike politicians very, very much.

Feinstein backtracks over remarks about leaks coming from White House.

David Axelrod: White House Did Not Leak Classified Information (VIDEO)

Do White House Leaks Deserve a National Security Investigation?

Of course, this all comes from the State Propaganda Machine, formerly known as the Free Press, so how much of any of this can we believe?

Even so, the real story is that we have enemies in the White House and they don’t care how badly they hurt or endanger all that is good in this country, including the lives of our Military members, aka, our kids, to keep their power, control and positions.

And that will not be covered by the State Propaganda Machine, formerly known as the Free Press.

If the CinC isn’t defending the Military and this nation, who the hell is?

Ummm, that would be you and me.

DOD Bolsters Safeguards for Sensitive Information

By Cheryl Pellerin

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, July 20, 2012 – In a closed House panel hearing on the unauthorized disclosure of classified information, the defense department’s senior civilian official and its top military officer said DOD must do more to protect sensitive information, Pentagon Press Secretary George Little said in a statement.

Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey yesterday testified about information security matters before the House Armed Services Committee.

“The secretary and Chairman Dempsey believe that the vast majority of the millions of defense personnel with security clearances would never leak classified material,” Little said.

“However,” he added, “they believe we must do more to protect sensitive information.”

The steps to be taken here.

See!  We are doing something about this!  Not so much coming clean, but we’re doing something! Now relax, we have it all under control.  And that’s the point, isn’t it?  Control?

So Congress…what are you going to do?  You also took the oath to defend the Constitution.  Maybe you all need a refresher course on your duties as an elected public official, serving the CITIZENS of the United States of AMERICA.  Not Mexico.  Not Latin America.  Not any other country.

It’s an election year and our Military are still having a difficult time getting their absentee votes counted.

UPDATE:  Just came across this article:

Help 1st Sgt Walter Taylor

One day, we may look back on the criminal charges the Army has brought against 1st Sgt. Walter Taylor as the very worst abuse of prosecutorial discretion of the wars that began 11 years ago. The highly regarded and seasoned non-commissioned officer has been charged with negligent homicide, which the US Army claims was committed during an enveloping attack in Afghanistan somewhere along the so-called Highway of Death between Kabul and Kandahar. In an eternity of four seconds, SFC Walter Taylor decided to fire upon what turned out to be civilians in a car, killing a woman and two young people, her son and her niece.

The basic facts from the must-read account in the LA Times:

His convoy was reeling from a roadside bomb, his fellow soldiers were engaged in combat with insurgents — and a mysterious black car had just screeched to a stop in the middle of the firefight. Some nine minutes later, a black door opens.

Second 1: A figure dressed in dark, bulky clothing emerges.

Second 2: The figure begins walking toward the trunk.

Second 3: Taylor, with five wounded comrades behind him, sees a thin trigger wire seeming to snake directly toward the black car. Could there be a second bomb in the trunk?

Second 4: Taylor squeezes the trigger on his M-4 carbine. The figure crumples to the dirt.

Read the rest here. That’s not the worst of it.

I may just have to go out and empty a few mags at our range today.
