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.”

And..

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

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.

 

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.

Frustration got the best of me..

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.
