New Benghazi Emails Mean Obama Impeachment Trial Must Be Launched – Roger Simon
I didn’t know how right I was when I wrote on September 29, 2012 “Benghazi Worse then Watergate.”
With the release of new emails it is spectacularly worse — so bad in fact that it has made a full investigation with an impeachment trial necessary for the protection of our republic.
The levels of criminality involved in this are mind-boggling. Everyone from Ben Rhodes to Hillary Clinton to Jay Carney to Susan Rice to Mike Morell to Barack Obama and on and on must explain themselves minute-by-minute. American “liberals” and their media consorts should search their souls. People died here.
In the past I’ve written on this blog that I’m against impeachment proceedings for a number of reasons. No longer. There must be consequences for a man who not only shows disregard for our laws and our Constitution, but open hostility.
We cannot allow the next President (regardless of party) to believe he can behave like Barack Obama without consequence.
U.S. Regulatory Costs Are World’s No. 10 Economy – Investors
After years of rapid growth during the Obama administration, the cost of federal regulations is now bigger than the entire economies of all but nine countries in the world.
Ask your Liberal friends “How big is big enough?” after you show them this article.
Senator: E-mails show how Benghazi story shaped – USA Today
The e-mails, obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act request, include one in which White House official Ben Rhodes lists “goals” for then-U.N. ambassador Susan Rice to meet in explaining the attack and protests occurring across the Middle East that week to the American public.
Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans died in the assault, which the White House subsequently acknowledged was an al-Qaeda-linked terror attack.
The e-mail, sent to various officials including White House spokesman Jay Carney, said one goal was “to underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.”
Another goal was “to reinforce the president and administration’s strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges.”
Rhodes is assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communication and speechwriting.
That would be Ben Rhodes, brother of fellow Obama ass-sniffer and President of CBS News I’m sure that had absolutely nothing to do with CBS News’ eagerness to regurgitate all the bullshit that the White House was flinging at the American people.
And on that note:
Benghazi scandal tied to White House – Washington Post
As I have said before, this scandal leads directly to the Oval Office.
Federal judge strikes down Wisconsin’s voter ID law – Milwaukee JS
A federal judge on Tuesday struck down Wisconsin’s voter ID law, saying it violated the Voting Rights Act and the U.S. Constitution.
The law known as Act 23 had already been blocked by a state judge. For the law to be put back in place, supporters would have to overturn both the state and federal decisions — a possibility thatcould prove difficult between now and the Nov. 4 election for governor.
“There is no way to determine exactly how many people Act 23 will prevent or deter from voting without considering the individual circumstances of each of the 300,000 plus citizens who lack an ID,” U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman wrote in his 70-page ruling. “But no matter how imprecise my estimate may be, it is absolutely clear that Act 23 will prevent more legitimate votes from being cast than fraudulent votes.”
A lawyer for the American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin praised the ruling, calling it a victory for the minority witnesses who came forward to explain how the law prevented them from voting as they had in the past.
“We are very pleased that the judge recognized what we believe we showed at trial, which is that Wisconsin’s voter ID law did have a discriminatory effect on African-American and Latino voters,” said Karyn Rotker, a senior attorney for the state ACLU.
Translation: We don’t believe that African-Americans and Latinos are capable of the monumental task of obtaining a state id. But we’re not racist, only Republicans can be racist. Have we mentioned that there’s definitely not an enormous racism problem within the American Left?
As an aside, the Judge (Lynn Adelman) was a Democrat Senator prior to being appointed to the bench.
Obamacare deals blow to one-doctor medicine – UT San Diego
Despite the predictions of fortune tellers in politics and think tanks, we won’t know for years whether the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, will ultimately leave people sicker or healthier, richer or poorer.
Yet already the law, coming on top of previous legislation, is speeding the demise of an American small-business institution; the one-doctor medical practice.
I wonder sometimes how we’ll explain to our kids that we allowed a Puppet President and his party along with a complicit Republican party to blaze a trail of destruction through our country. It’s especially damning that the country as a whole couldn’t recognize what this man is considering he was preceded by a puppet President. I wonder if we’ll be any smarter in a couple of years.
Exclusive: Kerry Warns Israel Could Become ‘An Apartheid State’ – The Daily Beast
We always seem to be 5-10 years behind Europe in our charge to the Left/Disaster. Anti-Semitism has blossomed in the past decade under the Left’s rule of Europe and the Left at home is determined not too fall to far behind.
The secretary of state said that if Israel doesn’t make peace soon, it could become ‘an apartheid state,’ like the old South Africa. Jewish leaders are fuming over the comparison.
If there’s no two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict soon, Israel risks becoming “an apartheid state,” Secretary of State John Kerry told a room of influential world leaders in a closed-door meeting Friday.
I received about half a dozen emails after my post about Bundy (of the Bundy ranch) being a senile old fool. The emails were very critical and pointed out a lot of things that I was aware of but didn’t mention because of my frustration with the man. So to clear the air:
Yes, I know how the MSM works with this sort of thing. What they did with Bundy (as they would with any target) is they’ll hang out with the target for a couple of days. They’ll keep interviewing him as casually as possible with the cameras or the voice recorder running. They’ll wait until he says something that could be controversial and more importantly, used against the target. This is exactly what the NY Times did with Bundy.
I know he’s an old man who lives an isolated life and he can’t be expected to be media savvy. It was merely frustration because now the MSM is going to tear this man apart (they’re already halfway there) and every Obamabot out there will denounce the man and ignore the very real issue at hand. After all, most of them are just waiting for the chance to exercise their moral superiority muscles.
So for the record, here’s the full clip of Bundy’s comments.
Obama’s NSA refuses FOIA request on Malaysia flight 370 on grounds of classified info – DC Clothes Line
On March 24, 2014, the gutsy and indefatigable attorney Dr. Orly Taitz made a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the NSA for any and all documents relating to missing Malaysian Flight MH 370.
This is the letter Dr. Taitz received in response:
My sources still maintain that the plane landed in Pakistan as I posted on here back on March 20th. The bottom line is that there is no such thing as a missing plane in the year 2014. It is not possible. I am deeply concerned about this.
The media is turning on President Obama – NY Post
The accounts and others like them amount to an autopsy of a failed presidency, but the process won’t be complete unless it is completely honest. To meet that test, the Times, other liberal news organizations and leading Democrats, in and out of office, must come to grips with their own failures, as well.
Obama had a free hand to make a mess because they gave it to him. They cheered him on, supporting him with unprecedented gobs of money and near-unanimous votes. They said “aye” to any cockamamie concept he came up with, echoed his demonization of critics and helped steamroll unpopular and unworkable ideas into reality. (Emphasis mine)
Some of his backers knew better, and said so privately, but publicly they were all in. Whether it was ObamaCare, his anti-Israel position or the soft-shoe shuffle around the Iranian nuke crisis, they lacked the courage to object.
They said nothing as Obama went on foreign apology tours and stood silent as our allies warned of disastrous consequences. Even now, despite protests from a succession of Pentagon leaders, former Democratic defense hawks are helping Obama hollow out our military as Russia and China expand theirs and al Qaeda extends its footprint.
A king is no king without a court, and Obama has not lacked for lackeys. The system of checks and balances is written into the Constitution, but it is the everyday behavior of Americans of good will that makes the system work.
That system broke down under Obama, and the blame starts with the media. By giving the president the benefit of the doubt at every turn, by making excuses to explain away fiascos, by ignoring corruption, by buying the White House line that his critics were motivated by pure politics or racism, the Times and other organizations played the role of bartender to a man on a bender.
Even worse, they joined the party, forgetting the lessons of history as well as their own responsibilities to put a check on power. A purpose of a free press is to hold government accountable, but there is no fallback when the watchdog voluntarily chooses to be a lapdog.
You’ve just alienated most of the people that were supporting you.
Rand Paul and other Republican leaders back away from Bundy – Washington Post
“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” Cliven Bundy told supporters last week, according to a New York Times story that published on Wednesday night.
The Nevada rancher was previously best known for refusing to pay two decades-worth of fines for grazing his cattle on federal land and fighting off the Bureau of Land Management for the nth time, this time with the help of armed militia — or for being the patron saint of state’s rights, pick your poison. But since those controversial comments were published, he has seen most of his friends in high places vanish overnight. Republican politicians who saw the Bundy stand-off as an opportunity to connect with the far right are now trying to figure out which adverb will put the most distance between themselves and the rancher.
The tyrants in the White House (and their masters) must be laughing their asses off. A man who days ago represented the fight against an out of control, tyrannical Federal Government turns out to be a senile old racist fool.
The saddest thing is that everything important about the events at the Bundy Ranch in the past two weeks will now be lost in the shuffle of guffaws over this imbecile’s prattling about slavery. Such a shame and such a damn fool.
