Three Issues: Banghazi, IRS, & DOJ…& there are probably more lurking out there!
PAUL: The moment of responsibility for Hillary Clinton
Ron Paul: “Benghazi security was a life-and-death matter that resulted in the latter. The notion that high-ranking government officials are somehow beyond reproach, as some suggested during my criticism of Mrs. Clinton, is dangerous and wrong.
“The secretary of state’s responsibility is to protect our diplomats. Mrs. Clinton should have been relieved of her post for denying pleas for additional security. Almost 20 years ago, President Clinton’s secretary of defense was relieved of his post for a similarly bad decision.”

Jon Stewart Shows Why CNN Has Become the Clown News Network
Jon Stewart may have had some shameful talking points about the Benghazi ‘non-story,’ but at least he is able to take any news outfit down a few notches.
CNN and other mainstream media outfits did everything possible to avoid covering the Benghazi whistleblowers’ testimony last week. This video shows to just what absurd lengths CNN went to in order to give the hearing just a modicum of coverage.

Obama Holds Private Meeting With Liberal Journalists Discuss Benghazi
Just because you can do something doesn’t mean that you should do that thing. Case in point: the White House’s decision to call representatives of fourteen large news organizations into a secret meeting right before White House press secretary Jay Carney was scheduled to hold a normal briefing for all White House reporters. Is the White House too stuck on itself to realize that, when your cover-up has been exposed, you don’t keep digging by starting Cover-Up II, the Sequel?
Wednesday’s House hearing about Benghazi marked a very bad day for the White House. Highly placed, very credible State Department officials with first-hand knowledge testified that the White house did nothing to save Americans while the Benghazi attack was taking place and worked feverishly to lie about the attack after it had ended.
Americans are a forgiving people. A few well-placed confessions and apologies might blunt the political consequences flowing from these revelations. An arrogant administration, though, won’t opt for confession and redemption. Instead, it will double down. Which is precisely what the White House did.

CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson Taking Heat from Network with Direct Ties to Obama’s Cover-Up Team
CBS’ lone reporter on the Benghazi beat is Sharyl Attkisson, who has been questioning the White House’s ‘false narrative’ about the deadly terrorist attack from the beginning. But she’s in hot water with network chiefs.
And who are these chiefs? One of them is CBS News’ President David Rhodes, whose brother happens to be President Obama’s deputy national security advisor for strategic communications Ben Rhodes.
According to ABC News, Ben Rhodes is heavily implicated in the editing of the CIA’s intelligence briefing on Benghazi, which became the White House’s carefully redacted talking points during last year’s re-election campaign. References to terrorism, al Qaeda, and the affiliated Islamist group Ansar al-Sharia were removed, and fabricated talking points about an anti-Islamic video and spontaneous protests interjected into the narrative.

On Benghazi probe, GOP’s Issa says ‘Hillary Clinton’s not a target’
Carrie Dann, Political Reporter for NBC News writes: “A top GOP critic pushed back Sunday on charges that Republican efforts to investigate last year’s Benghazi attack are designed to inflict political damage on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton’s not a target,” said House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa on NBC’s Meet the Press. “President Obama is not a target.”
Issa, who heads a panel probing the assault on the diplomatic outpost that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, said he will seek depositions from Benghazi review board heads Ambassador Thomas Pickering and retired Adm. Mike Mullen, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

State Dept Emails Confirm Push to Edit Benghazi Talking Points
Well, it’s becoming clear now that Benghazi is and has been a coverup all along, just as we knew it was. The White House finally released 100 pages of Benghazi emails last night and they confirm that the State Department did push to edit the talking points on Benghazi. View the emails here.
ABC News reports: “The emails confirm the ABC News report that the so-called “talking points” written by the CIA on the attack underwent extensive revisions – 12 versions – and that substantial changes were made after the State Department expressed concerns.”

6 Ways Benghazi Proves Hillary Should Never Be President
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appears to be the front runner for the Democratic nomination to run for President in 2016, despite the fact that her actions surrounding the terror attack on the Benghazi Consulate prove she shouldn’t be allowed to run a non-profit, much less a whole administration.
The entire Obama Administration has handled the attack poorly, but Hillary should shoulder most of the blame, due to her position and involvement.
The American people need only to look at her behavior before, during and after Benghazi to know how she would handle a similar crisis if she were to be elected President. If anything, we should be looking for ways to file criminal charges — not give her the most powerful political office on earth.

Prezzy Claim Benghazi Review Board ‘Investigated Every Element’ is Pure Fiction
President Asshat Caught In Yet Another Benghazi-gate Lie
For months, conservative media has been howling over the falsehood that the Accountability Review Board (ARB) offered a thorough investigation into the September 11 terror attack in Benghazi. The most frustrating part is that in order to ignore the legions of unanswered questions surrounding Libya, Obama and his media (most famously Slate’s Dave Weigel, who used the report to say GOP claims of a cover up were “pure fiction”) have hid behind the ARB’s report as though it were definitive.

Senior White House Official Says Certain Facts of Benghazi and IRS Scandals are “Irrelevant”
Tim Brown reports: “White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer went on three Sunday shows and indicated that the Obama administration is irrelevant in the midst of growing scandals, including Benghazi talking points, where Obama was during the Benghazi attacks, and the IRS debacle.
When Dan Pfeiffer went on the “Fox News Sunday” & was asked by Chris Wallace, “What did the President do the rest of the night to pursue Benghazi?”, Pfieffer responded: “Look, the President was kept up to date on this as it was happening the entire night, from the moment it started until the very end,” he said. “I recognize that there’s a series of conspiracy theories Republicans have been spinning about it since the time it happened. The question here is not what happened that night,” he added.
When he was asked by Stephanopoulos on ABC News “This Week,” in response to a question about the IRS targeting conservative groups, he said that was “inexcusable.” However, he then went on to say, ““I can’t speak to the law here. The law is irrelevant. The activity was outrageous and inexcusable, and it was stopped and it needs to be fixed so we ensure it never happens again.”
When Stephanopoulos asked him to clarify his statement, Pfeiffer said, “What I mean is, whether it’s legal or illegal is not important to the fact that the conduct doesn’t matter. The Department of Justice has said they’re looking into the legality of this. The president is not going to wait for that. We have to make sure it doesn’t happen again, regardless of how that turns out.”
Wow…Whether or not the IRS actions are legal or illegal is not important? He’s certainly trying to cover for someone or something.

2. Justice Department Investigates Associated Press
Obama Becomes Nixon As Benghazi Gate Evidence Becomes Overwhelming…Scandal politics are sweeping Capitol Hill
Just days after news broke that the IRS targeted conservative nonprofits, Speaker John Boehner’s House committees will morph into mock courtrooms where the White House will be the defendant in what amounts to a number of high-stakes political trials.
…There are currently five separate committee investigations into the attack on a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, and a probe into Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius raising millions of dollars to promote Obamacare. Ways and Means is demanding answers to seven questions on this matter, as well.
…All together, roughly one-third of House committees are engaged in investigating some aspect of the Obama administration.
…“The speaker and other House leaders have been clear: Effective, responsible oversight is a key constitutional responsibility of Congress,” said Michael Steel, Boehner’s spokesman. “Whether the topic is the truth about Benghazi, thuggish political attacks from the IRS or the ‘train wreck’ of the president’s health care law, we will keeping fighting to make sure the American people know the truth.” source – Politico

Cloaked in misinformation
Doug Hagmann writes: “What’s one of the most effective and expedient methods of taking an incident that is true and making it not only appear false, but outrageously and demonstrably false? You know the kind of false I mean… the “urban legend” type of false, causing anyone who hears about the incident to immediately dismiss it and attack the messengers as conspiracy nuts?
“The answer is playing out, in real time, right before all of us, and we all need to understand the methods that are being used to cover the lie. To answer the question, though, is for a government official or agency to take what is true, wrap it in the bait of a larger lie where the larger, more outrageous lie is proven to be untrue. Soon, people don’t know what to believe, so they discount the entire story, even (and especially) the kernel of truth covered by the lie. Then, when anyone refers to the incident, they are told that the entire story was proven false.”
Site says Obama stole election through voter fraud
“During the election, Examiner’s Dean Chambers caused quite a stir when he talked about polls being skewed for Obama, something many conservatives reported. Now that the election is over, Chambers is focused on what he said is the reason for Obama’s victory. On Saturday, The Blaze reported that Chambers’ new site, barackofraudo.com, shows that Obama received 80 electoral votes in four states due largely to voter fraud.”

Hillary & Bill Clinton Redux: Obama’s IRS Scandal from Clinton Playbook
Knock me over with a whisper. The mainstream press and politicians are outraged to discover that the Obama administration has been misusing the Internal Revenue Services (IRS) for political gain by deliberately targeting and harassing Conservative and Tea Party groups who applied for tax-exempt status.
These same people are also shocked that a government agency would illegally leak out confidential information to the media. Where have you been all these years? Did you not think it wouldn’t happen to you or anyone else? This is what happens when corrupt politicians are not held accountable. They are emboldened. Their abuse of power grows like cancer and more innocent people are caught in their crosshairs.

Try to impeach Obama and you will see “jihad” on a scale never imagined before!
In a Blog posted by “Southern Girl,” it is assumed that Barack Hussein Obama, Jr, is a Muslim. She then goes on to develop why she believes this, and its impact on our nation and politics. She not only quotes from Obama’s books, but gives a long list of how he has been aiding and comforting the Muslims on every issue and at every step of the way.
