Retired 4-star admiral: Benghazi was an Obama false flag that went wrong

As the term is used in contemporary America, a “false flag” incident is some traumatic public event that is:

  • False: The public are given an untruthful version of the event by the government and the media.
  • Results in a “rallying around the flag” effect: The objective is to arouse and manipulate the emotions (fear, anger, outrage, indignation) of the American people so that they’ll “rally around the flag” in an outburst of patriotism, supplying the current White House occupant and his (and his party’s) policies with their support and loyalty.

Admiral James “Ace” Lyons (US Navy, Ret.), 86, an officer of the U.S. Navy for 36 years, is the former Commander in Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet (1985-1987) — the largest single military command in the world. Today he is a columnist for The Washington Times and the chairman of the Center for Security Policy’s Military Committee. He is also a co-author, along with 18 other top national security professionals, of Shariah: The Threat to America.

H/t Tea Party Crusaders and John Molloy for the video.

In an interview with Lou Dobbs on the Fox Business Network., Adm. Lyons says that Barack Obama intentionally conspired with America’s enemies to stage a bogus attack on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, against the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, and the bogus kidnapping of Ambassador Chris Stevens.

According to the plan, Obama would successfully “negotiate” for Stevens’ release in a prisoner exchange, which would bolster the POS’s then-mediocre approval ratings just prior to the 2012 election.

In Lyons’ words, “The attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi . . . was the result of a bungled abduction attempt . . . the first stage of an international prisoner exchange . . . that would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the ‘Blind Sheik’.”

But something went horribly wrong with Obama’s “October Surprise.”

Although the Obama Administration intentionally gutted security at the Benghazi consulate prior to the staged kidnapping, former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty disobeyed direct orders to stand down. The two men raced to the U.S. compound and killed scores of attackers, but were themselves killed.

The terrorists took Woods’ and Doherty’s heroism to mean Obama had reneged on the deal, so they took their anger out on Ambassador Stevens by torturing him and dragging his body through the streets.

Admiral Lyons’ assertions make sense. They would explain many of the oddities of the Benghazi incident, including:

Note: Admiral Lyons had made these accusations back in November 2012, and nothing came of it. But there isn’t much else he can do, which is why he and others. in a Jan. 6, 2014 letter to House Speaker John A. Boehner signed by more than 70 people, are demanding a Congressional select committee to investigate the Benghazi debacle. But their demands are falling on the GOP establishment’s deaf ears.

Defunding Obamacare

Obama yucks it up

Two Arkansas Republicans, Tim Griffin of Little Rock and Rick Crawford of Jonesboro, joined 78 of their colleagues in correspondence addressed to House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor, advocating for a showdown this Fall over the “Affordable Care Act” (even though it is anything but affordable-what a misnomer!), requesting the de-funding of Obamacare.  In a letter they wrote it provided, “We urge you to affirmatively de-fund the implementation and enforcement of Obamacare in any relevant appropriations bill brought to the House floor. . .including any continuing appropriations bill.”

Of course, the Democrats allege that the attempt to de-fund Obamacare is an attempt to shut down the government.  Griffin and/or Crawford indicated that they are not calling for such a shutdown, and that the letter does not ask for a shutdown.  Griffin elaborated that , “The letter does not advocate for a government shutdown:  You won’t find those words anywhere in the letter, just like you can’t find any of the lower costs or economic benefits President Obama and Nancy Pelosi attribute to Obamacare.”  Crawford said, “I believe that rushing ahead with $1.3 trillion in new entitlement spending in the middle of a debt crisis is irresponsible and the letter I signed expresses my desire for House leadership to consider using the appropriations process as a mechanism to move toward stopping this madness.”  By way of background, Congress has not enacted appropriations bills needed to keep the government operating beyond the end of the current fiscal year on September 30th; in the past, they turned to a continuing resolution that would temporarily fund the government.

Rep. Mark Meadows, House Republican from North Carolina who organized, drafted and/or strategized the letter, said that de-funding Obamacare by the end of September is imperative, inasmuch as enrollment begins on October 1st in state-based health care exchanges, which is a major component of the health reform law.  Rep. Meadows said during an interview with Mike Huckabee, radio host, that “The American people are with us on this particular issue.”

Since the House holds the purse strings, it will be interesting to see how this plays out; one can only hope that the madness of Obamacare ends!

God help us!

Amnesty – and the Traitors among us

My writer friend, Robert K. Wilcox, speaks the undeniable truth about the Gang of 8 immigration reform Amnesty for Illegal Aliens bill. FOTM is grateful for his permission to re-publish his essay in its entirety.

welcome to Meximerica

THE TRAITORS AMONG US

There are traitors in our midst and I’m not talking about NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden. I’m talking about every corrupt, greedy, self-serving, cowardly politician hurting Americans. There are many and they don’t give a damn. Amnesty is the latest crime these sell-outs are perpetrating on the people. It’s a mugging just as sure as a criminal puts a gun to your head and takes your money. They did it with Obamacare and they’re going to do it with amnesty.

There’s no reason for amnesty. Enforce the borders, then deal with those who have broken the law. Democrat traitors want amnesty to increase their power. To hell with existing law which demands border enforcement. Who cares about the rule of law and the jobs of American workers? Amnesty, they know, will give them many more voters. Those pardoned will overwhelmingly vote Democrat. The traitor press and socialist dominate education system has guaranteed that.

Republican traitors want amnesty for the cheap labor it will provide Big Businesses who are their donors and keep them elected. There are also the Republican fools who incredibly believe it will actually gain their party votes. The Democrats know better but why burst the fool’s bubble?

The worst traitors are the political leaders who know full well what this [is] about – Obama at the head, Reid and McConnell in the Senate, Boehner and his officers in the House. Obama won’t enforce existing law so the lie of the broken “system” reigns. The system isn’t broken. It might need some tweaks. But it’s the politicians who made the system. They’re the ones who are “broken.” We already have laws that would secure the borders. These broken politicians won’t enforce them.

At least Reid makes no pretense. He’s as slippery as an eel and is using every trick in the senate rules book to move a basically unreadable, near-thousand page bill as fast as he can in order to make it law before anyone has the time to read it. He knows it leaves enforcement up to border dictator Janet Napolitano who will do exactly what Obama wants – not enforce border security. He knows the bill will keep he and Democrats like him in office for decades with millions of newly made Democrats. He knows it will cost low-wage working Americans their jobs and middle-class Americans what little prosperity they have left after all the earlier treason.Their wealth will go to the welfare monster that the newly-amnestied illegal aliens will demand and the newly more powerful Democrats will willingly provide. He doesn’t care a wit. It’s in his interest and that’s all that counts.

McConnell is just as slippery but in a less obvious way. The polls show his party constituents overwhelmingly against amnesty. He wrings his hands and laments the amnesty moves with deep concern on his owl-like face. But despite the fact he could block it with the many tools at his beckon as minority leader, he does nothing. Leadership means leading. But the Obama style of leadership – being absent – is catching. McConnell is a prime example. It subverts the Americans he supposedly represents.

Boehner never was a leader. He got his job like so many other Republican leaders “because it’s his time.” I don’t know how he keeps it. I got his newsletter today. The headline reads “Our students deserve better.” It’s about how he wants to hold the line on student loan interest rates. Student loans! At a time when the very future of his party and the nation’s borders hinges on the amnesty bill, he’s concerned about student loans going up? What about Obamacare, Benghazi, IRS politicization, Fast and Furious, the attorney general lying to congress? No, those important issues take a back seat. He wants to control student loan interest rates.

That isn’t even Republican. Republicans are supposed to favor free markets; i.e, let the interest rates be what the market determines. But that’s typical of the confused pap, cowardly reticence to challenge, and disregard for the nation’s pressing issues coming from the speaker’s office. He was elected speaker to attend to America’s major problems with the power of the House. But he’s unaware of them, afraid, or too self-serving to care. A pundit I heard called him “a used car salesmen, just wanting to make a deal.” What could be more pressing than making sure the borders are closed when terrorists are daily crossing them, threatening our lives? Student loans? Would you like to see the sedan?

They’re selling us down the river, Democrats and RINO Republicans, forcing this amnesty without care for its effects on our nation or even reasonable debate about its ills. It’s tantamount to treason, for it will lead to a catastrophic invasion of America that violates its sovereignty, tramples the rule of law and fairness, and will ruin the country economically as surely as if a spy divulged secrets allowing the nation to be invaded.

illegals demand free stuff

On Monday, June 24, 2013, the U.S. Senate passed an amendment to the Gang of 8 “immigration reform” amnesty bill, S. 744, Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act. The amendment effectively is now the substitute bill.

By a vote of 69 to 29, senators amended the immigration bill to include provisions that would double the size of the U.S. Border Patrol along the Mexican border, require the construction of 700 miles of fencing along the southern border and authorize the use of new radar and unmanned aerial drones to track illegal border crossings.

But the Senate amendment  doesn’t actually secure the border. Under current law, the federal government is mandated to secure the border, but they refuse to do so. The new amendment removes the mandate and provides for “discretion” to do so. If the federal government wouldn’t secure the border when it was a mandate, why would they secure it now that it’s at their discretion?

Furthermore, the amendment is jam-packed with pork. Millions upon millions go to Nevada for tourism marketing, for example — which is why Nevada’s newly elected senator Dean Heller voted “yes”). Others who voted yes get also get huge inflows of cash for programs aimed at putting illegal immigrants to work.

The bill is a disaster as it stands today. Just like Obamacare, the amended amnesty bill is 1,200 pages and we’re only just now starting to get a glimpse of how bad it is. There is no way possible the senators who voted yes on the amendment were able to carefully read and consider its implications. Yet, they recklessly voted for it anyway.

Here are the “Filthy 15″ Republican senators who have joined the Left in voting “yes” on Amnesty:

  1. John McCain (Ariz.)
  2. Lindsey Graham (S.C.)
  3. Marco Rubio (Fla.)
  4. Jeff Flake (Ariz.)
  5. Bob Corker (Tenn.)
  6. Lamar Alexander (Tenn.)
  7. Kelly Ayotte (N.H.)
  8. Jeff Chiesa (N.J.)
  9. Susan Collins (Maine)
  10. Orrin Hatch (Utah)
  11. Dean Heller (Nev.)
  12. Mark Kirk (Ill.)
  13. John Hoeven (N.D.)
  14. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
  15. Roger Wicker (Miss.)

An Open Letter To Liberals.

now this is pretty funny.  :D

—————————————————————————————–

BY RAT ON APRIL 19, 2013

Dear Liberals,

I wanted to send along my condolences in regards to the rough week you guys have had.

Now that the Boston Marathon bombers have been officially identified as Muslim terrorists, I can only imagine how heartbroken you must be. Hell – I wouldn’t be surprised if Tingles Matthews is on 24-hour suicide watch. Then, you have the morbidly-obese Michael Moore, who immediately speculated that the bombers were “white right-wingers,” now pathetically claiming via Twitter that he was “right.” (Seems as if he missed the part about the killers being radicalized Chechen Muslims.)

Anyway, I can only imagine how embarrassing it must be that once again, one of your self-appointed spokesmen – er, sorry, “spokespersons” – is such a spectacularly sore loser.

Speaking of spectacularly sore losers, your president’s little temper tantrum in the Rose Garden after the Senate handed him his ass on the gun-control bill must have been embarrassing as well. To add insult to injury, it was the Democrat-controlled Senate that did the ass-handing – with five Democrats joining the ranks of the evil Republicans – or as O likes to call them, the “enemies.” I’m sure that the disappointment of being denied the opportunity to blame the bill’s defeat on John Boehner and the House Republicans was excruciating for him.

Take heart though; O’s humiliation, coming after he pulled out all the stops, including using Sandy Hook parents as props – multiple times, will only serve to motivate him to issue yet another slew of executive orders – and Congress will be circumvented again! So, see? All it not lost in your efforts to control the guns of law-abiding citizens. Besides, this is only one loss in the long march to confiscate guns; have a little patience!

I’m sure it must also be rough for you guys to read about the horrific testimony and see the grisly images coming out of the Philadelphia abortionist’s murder trial. Not very good for the cause, is it? Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place; your media refuses to cover the story in its effort to protect abortion at all costs – while it continues to draw an ever-increasing amount of criticism for doing so. I mean, it’s getting so bad that even liberal commentators are pointing out the hypocrisy. Too bad Gosnell didn’t kill all those babies with an AR-15, huh? How awesome would that have been?

Anyway, chins up, dudes – it won’t be this bad forever. Besides, if the fertilizer plant explosion in Texas turns out to have been intentionally caused by a white right-winger – better yet, a white right-wing Christian –everything will be good again on Planet Looney Tunes. Keep your fingers and toes crossed.

Have a great weekend,

A Concerned Conservative

P.S. Almost forgot: So sorry that the deluded nut job Elvis impersonator who sent ricin-laced letters to O and several members of Congress turned out to not only be a Democrat – but a Democrat activist, no less. Man, when it rains, it pours, huh?

Bonehead Reelected Speaker of the House

Wimp

Wimp

Only nine republicans defected.

It is now abundantly clear to me that if this country has any chance at all at survival (and I am seeing less and less to be optimistic about with each passing day), the Republican Party, as currently structured, is not going to be the reason.

I am almost at the point of despair.

May God help us.

Fiscal Cliff deal: The good, bad, and ugly

Last night, Jan. 1, 2013, at 10:45 pm, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a deal to avert the fiscal cliff, by a final vote of 257 to 167.

The House vote came less than 24 hours after the Senate had overwhelmingly approved the bill 89 to 8, with both parties’ support. The bill now goes to the POS for his signature. Instead of signing the bill, he’s already left D.C. to resume his vacation in Honolulu which was so rudely interrupted by the fiscal cliff negotiations. [snark]

The Fiscal Cliff deal:

  • The top tax rate increases from 35% to 40% on annual income over $450,000 for married couples and $400,000 for single people. This is the first time in more than two decades that a broad tax increase has been approved with GOP support.
  • “Temporary” Bush tax cuts for couples making less than $450,000 and individuals making less than $400,000 per year are made “permanent” (which means “until Congress changes their mind”).
  • More than 100 million “middle class” families (those earning less than $250,000 a year) will be protected from significant income tax increases set to take effect this month, but their payroll taxes will rise with the expiration of a temporary tax cut adopted two years ago.
  • No estate taxes on inheritance of $5 million, or $10 million for married couples.
  • Federal dairy policies will be extended through September, averting a threatened doubling of milk prices.
  • Extension of unemployment benefits to 2 million people for another year.
  • Automatic cuts to the Pentagon and other agencies that had been set to take effect today will be delayed for two months.
  • Pay raise for members of Congress, which was effectuated by Obama’s executive order, is nixed.
  • Automatic spending cuts (sequestration) from last year’s debt ceiling deal are postponed until March 2013, which means — oh joy — there’ll be a Fiscal Cliff II next month!

The Bad:

Buried in the fine print of the 150-page deal are some New Year’s gifts to some of Washington’s favorite cronies. Under the plan, the federal government would eat nearly $100 billion in forgone tax revenue over the next two years by extending special tax credits for select businesses that had been set to expire:

  • $430 million for Hollywood through “special expensing rules” to encourage TV and film production in the United States. Producers can “expense” up to $15 million of costs for their projects. All this for a film industry that enjoyed a record box office last year.
  • $331 million for railroads by allowing short-line and regional operators to claim a tax credit up to 50% of the cost to maintain tracks that they own or lease.
  • $222 million for Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands through returned excise taxes collected by the federal government on rum produced in the islands and imported to the mainland.
  • $70 million for NASCAR by extending a “7-year cost recovery period for certain motorsports racing track facilities.”
  • $59 million for algae growers through tax credits to encourage production of “cellulosic biofuel” at up to $1.01 per gallon.
  • $4 million for electric motorcycle makers by expanding an existing green-energy tax credit for buyers of plug-in vehicles to include electric motorbikes.

The Absurd:

  • This is how farcical the fiscal cliff brouhaha was: Members of the U.S. Senate had only 3 minutes to read the 154-page fiscal cliff bill and budget score, before they voted 89-8 to approve the bill. Senators received the bill at approximately 1:36 AM on Jan. 1, 2013 – a mere three minutes before they voted to approve it at 1:39 AM. I’ve taken longer to read the instructions for my new cell phone.
  • House Republicans also violated their pledge to allow three days for the public to read the legislation before they would vote on a bill. This was a promise the GOP made to voters before the 2010 elections.

The Ugly:

151 Republicans in the House voted “no,” which meant the GOP tally fell far short of a majority of the GOP caucus. That broke a long-standing preference by House Speaker John Boehner to advance only bills that could draw the support of a majority of his Republican members. So Boehner himself cast a rare vote: He supported the bill. So did Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.), the GOP’s vice-presidential candidate last year.

40 House Republicans voted for the bill, including such GOP leaders on tax-and-spending policy as Sen. Patrick J. Toomey (Pa.) and Ronald H. Johnson (Wis.), a tea party star.

The Good:

  • Senate Republicans who voted against the bill include tea party favorites Rand Paul (Ky.) and Mike Lee (Utah), as well as Marco Rubio (Fla).
  • House Republicans who voted no include Majority Leader Eric Cantor (Va.) and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (Calif.).

The Really Bad:

Regardless of one’s political affiliation or beliefs, from an economic and fiscal perspective, the cliff deal has accomplished nothing. Here’s why:

  • The bill’s proposed spending cuts of $15 billion are less than 2% of the federal government’s deficit.
  • The bill’s tax increases will raise $620 billion over the next ten years — roughly $62 billion in new tax revenue per year.
  • $62 billion in new tax revenue per year is less than 6% of the $1+ trillion deficit the Obama regime has incurred every year for the past four years.
  • According to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, the fiscal cliff bill will cause the national debt to be $4 trillion higher by 2022 than if all of the cliff’s tax increases and spending cuts had been allowed to take effect.

John Boehner is a Spineless Pussy

Little wonder this country is screwed, and even less of a wonder why this pr*ck of a POtuS is smiling:

Obama_laughing

Limp-wristed girly-man that apparently has Rep. Boehner by the proverbial short hairs

And would somebody please remind me just why, exactly, we even need a republican party, given that the repube “leadership” jackasses have now rid themselves of their elephant suits?

And we’re going to fix this in November of 2014?

Right.

Fiscal Cliff averted! And What’s wrong with this story?

The White House and congressional leaders have reached a deal to avert the fiscal cliff, a Democratic source familiar with the negotiations confirmed. The agreement includes a two-month delay of the sequester, which had been scheduled to begin on Jan. 2. President Barack Obama spoke with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi about the agreement and both leaders have signed off on it, according to the source.

Does Any one happen to see John Boehner’s name anywhere in this drivel?

We’re broke, but Obama gives raises to fed employees incl. Congress

Over the cliff we go. Wheeeeeee!!!!!

forward_coyote

Here’s a companion piece to the post that Trail Dust just published, “Sending Us Over the Cliff.”

Daniel Halper reports for the Weekly Standard, Dec 28, 2012, that the POS issued yet another executive order to end the pay freeze on federal employees, in effect giving some federal workers a raise.

One federal worker now to receive a pay increase is VPOS Joe Biden. According to disclosure forms, Biden made a cool $225,521 last year. After the pay increase, he’ll now make $231,900 per year.

Members of Congress, including House Speaker John Boehner, also will receive a $900 bump in their annual salary, from $174,000 to 174,900.

Here’s the list of new wages, as attached to Obama’s executive order: “A new executive order has been issued providing for a new pay schedule beginning ‘on the first day of the first applicable pay period beginning after March 27, 2013,’” reports FedSmith.com. “The pay raise will generally be about 1/2 of 1%.”

That is why the “negotiations” over the “fiscal cliff” between the POS in the White House and the little POS in the House, John Boehner, are just elaborate kabuki theater or a charade.

To his credit, a Democratic member of Congress, John Barrow of Georgia, is moving to block the POS’s congressional pay increase.

House sues Obama admin for Fast & Furious documents

John Boehner and the House Republicans just threw down the gauntlet at the POS in the White House and his henchman, Eric “I won’t prosecute New Black Panthers ’cause they’re my people” Holder.

Stephen Dinan reports for The Washington Times that House Republicans today asked the federal courts to intervene and force the Obama administration to turn over documents from the botched Fast and Furious gun-walking operation, escalating what had been a simmering constitutional crisis.

In a bipartisan vote in June the House held Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over documents the House had subpoenaed as part of its official investigation.

The administration first said it would try to work out a way to release the documents and said they didn’t show anything incriminating. But the White House later reversed course and claimed executive privilege prevented them from having to release the information.

House Speaker John A. Boehner said that since the Obama administration ignored a congressional subpoena — something the courts have long recognized as valid — lawmakers were left with no choice but to ask the courts to referee: “By stonewalling Congress and ignoring a contempt order, the Justice Department has left the House no choice but to take legal action so we can get to the bottom of the Fast and Furious operation that cost border agent Brian Terry his life.”

Border agent Brian Terry

Terry was killed in December 2010 in a gun fight with bandits who had crossed the U.S.-Mexico border. Two of the weapons recovered at the scene were part of Fast and Furious, an Obama administration operation that was supposed to try to track guns being sold to Mexican cartels, but which lost track of the weapons, allowing thousands to stream across the border.

The operation was halted in the wake of Terry’s death, but left Mexican authorities enraged and members of Congress demanding to know more.
