After Hillary’s Benghazi hearing, 100K new donors flood campaign with money

Conservatives like to say liberalism is a mental disease.

That’s being too generous.

I believe liberalism is a spiritual disorder and liberals are soul-less, without morals or ethics. Here’s the evidence.

Hillary Clinton what difference does it make

Annie Karni reports for Politico, Oct. 23, 2015, that donations have been flooding into Hillary’s campaign coffers over the past 13 hours since her testimony in front of the House Benghazi committee wrapped late Thursday night.

According to communications director Jennifer Palmieri, the hour between 9:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. last night was their best fundraising hour of the campaign to date.

Hillary said her campaign had broken the 500,000 donor mark, meaning she has gotten over 100,000 new contributors in October alone. Over half of the donations it received on Thursday were from new contributors, 99% of them were less than $250.

In other words, these Democrat donors are applauding Hillary for abandoning four Americans to a horrible death in Benghazi — two of whom, Ambassador Chris Stephens and Foreign Service information officer Sean Smith, are her underlings in the State Department.

Benghazi smoking gun: White House email orchestrates propaganda blaming terrorist attack on a video

On September 11, 2012, the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi was attacked by a heavily armed group of 125-150 gunmen, whose trucks bore the logo of Ansar al-Sharia, a group of Islamist militants working with the local government to manage security in Benghazi. U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Information Officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors and former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed during a series of raids, commencing at nightfall and continuing into the next morning. Ten others were injured. [Wikipedia]

Initially, it was reported that the Benghazi attack emerged from a spontaneous protest against a video, Innocence of Muslims. Subsequent investigations by the U.S. State Department; by the House of Representatives committees on Armed Services, Foreign Affairs, Intelligence, the Judiciary, and Oversight and Government Reform; and by the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence determined that there was no protest and that the attack was a planned terrorist attack launched by Islamist militants. [Wikipedia]

Fellowship of the Minds has published posts on how, from the beginning, the Obama administration had lied about the Benghazi attack being a spontaneous protest against an anti-Islamic video (see here and here).

Now, thanks to the tireless efforts of the nonpartisan citizen watchdog group Judicial Watch, we have the smoking gun in the form of an email from the White House instructing and coordinating a systematic propaganda campaign to portray the Benghazi attack as being, in the words of the email, “rooted in an Internet video, and not a failure of policy.” The White House-orchestrated propaganda was despite the fact that State Department officials initially had accurately described Benghazi as an “attack” and a possible kidnap attempt.

This email points to a CONSPIRACY. Those who are allergic to conspiracy theories and who portray conspiracy theorists as tinfoil hat-wearing kooks should take note.

The email was written by Benjamin J. Rhodes, then-White House Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser, and was dated September 14, 2012, 3 days after the Benghazi attack.


Benjamin Rhodes

Benjamin Rhodes

Ben Rhodes, Obama’s current deputy national security adviser for strategic communication, has been a foreign policy speechwriter for Obama since 2007. Rhodes is an advocate for U.S. “support” (read: arming, funding, and training) the Syrian rebels (read: jihadists). Rhodes’ wife is Ann Norris, chief foreign policy adviser to Senator Barbara Boxer; Rhodes’ brother, David, is president of CBS News. What a nice incestuous bunch!


Below are screenshots I took of Benjamin Rhodes’ email from Judicial Watch’s 112-page document in PDF of the emails and documents it obtained from the State Department (Rhodes’ email begins on p. 14.) I’ve underlined in red the most important phrases and sentences, which are all lies.

“Just minutes ago, the world was informed that a Select Committee investigation on Benghazi has finally been announced. This will bypass Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and will likely lead to the impeachment of Barack Obama and the end of Hillary Clinton’s career.
“The only question is why this hadn’t been done sooner. Benghazi was a massive system of crimes, cover ups, and outright lies by the Obama administration. Their goal was to win an election in 2012… but the cost might be impeachment in 2015.”

Americans in Benghazi attack sent distress calls, pleading for their lives

This makes me weep . . . .

Americans trapped in Benghazi that awful night of Sept. 11, 2012, were pleading for their lives — for someone to rescue them.

But their Commander In Chief was thousands of miles away that night in the White House and disappeared for hours — hours about which the White House refuses to account. Their Commander In Chief was so blasé, he actually went to bed and slept, then hopped onto Air Force One the next day to fly to Las Vegas for a fundraiser.

Later that month, in an interview, their Commander In Chief airily dismissed their deaths as mere “bumps on the road“. Later still, when she was hauled before a Congressional hearing, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, too, dismissed their deaths with the quip, “What does it matter?”

POS and Broomhilda

Catherine Herridge reports for Fox News, Nov. 20, 2013:

State Department employees at the Benghazi compound knew they were in a death trap and made a series of radio distress calls to the CIA annex during the terror assault last year, according to congressional sources familiar with recent testimony on the attack from five CIA personnel.

Sources told Fox News that the radio calls, which were described in closed testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, were characterized as almost frantic, with State Department employees who knew they could not defend themselves “pleading” for their lives. 

When the CIA team arrived from the annex about a mile away, they found the State Department employees without guns that could adequately protect them; one of the agents was found hiding in the consulate, apparently in a closet. The testimony lends more weight to repeated claims, in the wake of the attack, that the consulate was not adequately protected despite being located in a volatile and violent area prone to attack. 

When the CIA personnel were asked for their reaction to the administration’s initial explanation that an anti-Islam video and a demonstration gone awry were to blame for the attack, Fox News is told they were seething with anger because everything on the ground — from their perspective — showed it was a premeditated attack. 

At least three of the five — who were all in Benghazi — responded to the scene that night. The witnesses testified that five mortars rained down on the annex in less than a minute. They pointed to those details as more evidence of a professionally trained team, describing the attack on the annex as akin to a professional hit on the operation in order to drive it out of Benghazi.

Congressional sources say the testimony seems to further conflict with and undercut the briefing three days after the attack by then-CIA Director David Petraeus, who likened the attack to a flash mob. When pressed on the number and precision of the mortars, Petraeus offered that Benghazi was flooded with mortars, and played down their accuracy by suggesting they could have been fired from the back of a pick-up truck.

When Petraeus appeared on the Hill in November, following his resignation from the CIA over his admitted affair, he tried to claim that he knew it was a terrorist attack all along and insisted that he did not put the emphasis on the anti-Islam film.

What was Pres. Lucifer doing while Americans were being killed in Benghazi?

Where was Obama, the Commander In Chief (CIC), when a United States consulate was being attacked and an ambassador and three other Americans were being killed?

On Fox News Sunday, May 19, 2013, that’s the question asked of White House aide Dan Pfeiffer.

Where was Barack Obama’s whereabouts the night of Sept. 11, 2012, when our consulate in Benghazi was besieged and Ambassador Christopher Stevens, State Department official Sean Smith, and ex-Navy SEALS Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were killed? The terrorist attack lasted all night long at multiple locations in Benghazi. We now know that an unmanned U.S. surveillance drone was in the skies over Benghazi that night, and that the White House knew (and saw) what was happening, as it happened.

But while insisting that Obama had kept “in constant touch that night with his national security team and kept up to date with the events as they were happening,” Pfeiffer deemed the CIC’s whereabouts that night, and specifically whether Obama  was in the Situation Room, “a largely irrelevant fact.”

In an op-ed for Politico, Rich Lowry writes:

Obama’s actions and nonactions on that terrible night are a blank spot in his presidency. We simply don’t know much about them, and the White House has always been perfectly content to leave it that way.

We know he was meeting with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey on an unrelated matter at 5 p.m. Washington time, when he learned of the attack. In congressional testimony, Panetta said he had no contact with the president or the White House after that point.

Dempsey said he didn’t hear from the president, either. […]

Next, we know that the president talked to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at 10 p.m., when the assault that killed Chris Stevens and State Department computer expert Sean Smith was over but the mortar attack that killed two former U.S. Navy SEALs at another facility hadn’t yet taken place.

What about the rest of the time? […]

The day after his mystery night, Obama publicly emerged. He gave a statement at 10:35 a.m. condemning the Benghazi attack — and left Washington at 2:20 p.m. for a fundraiser in Las Vegas.”


a self-described “conservative homosexual” who lives in Chicago and blogs on HillBuzz, believes Obama was high on cocaine during those “missing hours” of the Benghazi attack.

In his post of May 24, 2013, DuJan writes:

If you’ve ever known anyone who is a drug addict, you’d see it’s obvious that Barack Obama was high on cocaine the night of Benghazi; it is the only logical explanation for his disappearance and the White House’s refusal to comment on what he was doing at the time.  Since this was a night of great crisis for our country, the only logical reason that the White House won’t explain where the president was is if this man was high as a kite on illegal narcotics at the time. […]

According to Lowry’s timeline:

* Obama appeared sober on 9/11/12 at 5pm EST when he met with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey. […] Obama appears to have been still functional and ambulatory at 5pm that day.

* Lowry says that Obama learned of the death of US Ambassador Chris Stevens at this meeting…before Obama disappeared for many hours. These are the mystery “missing hours” that the White House refuses to talk about.

* Obama next emerged from cloister at 10pm EST 9/11/12 when he spoke with Hillary Clinton; it’s not stated if this was in person or if it was on the phone, but it sure feels like Obama was out of his mind on drugs when this happened.  Clinton would never bust him on this (because she can never say a bad word about this man if she wants to secure the black vote in 2016), but even people on a late-80s-Wall-Street-grade binge of cocaine can talk on the phone for a few minutes. […]

* Obama then went missing until the next morning. […]

* Lowry then says Obama was next spotted at 1035am EST on 9/12/12 when he pretended the Benghazi attack was about some YouTube video…and then he disappeared again until he boarded his plane for fabulous Las Vegas at 220pm EST later that day.

After reading Lowry’s article, my good friend Justine in California emailed me to ask whether I thought Obama was having sex with Reggie Love during the “missing hours” and if that’s where he was. […]

I think Obama doing cocaine is a much better explanation for his missing hours, simply because at his age and with all the men he’s been with it’s not like he couldn’t just stop romancing Reggie for a little bit…and then get back to it when they were in Vegas. I know the stereotype of gay guys is that we’re all sex-crazed and can’t control ourselves, but even the biggest gay sexual glutton in the world can pull himself away from a hot guy long enough to take care of something important (if need be). It’s not like this would have been the first time that Barack Obama was having gay sex…so surely he could have pushed “pause” to be president for a while (before getting back to whatever he was up to when the crisis was over).

However, once you take drugs you are pretty much on another astral plane for however long it takes for the drugs to leave your system.  I’ve sadly watched a lot of incredible people in the nightlife scene ruin their lives with cocaine over the years, and once these people got high they stayed high until the drugs metabolized enough for them to function. […]

The timeline Lowry fleshed out perfectly fits a scenario where Barack Obama retired to his private quarters (perhaps with Reggie Love…or maybe one of the other low-ranking young men who are forever suspiciously palling around with this president, unlike any president before him) sometime around 6pm EST or so on 9/11/12. He then seems to have taken drugs (which I believe most likely involved cocaine). Hillary Clinton either showed up to kill his buzz or she kept calling on the phone over and over again until he answered at 10pm. […]

From then until the staff was finally able to rouse, dress, and make him presentable enough for the public at 1030am the next day. Barack Obama appears to have been out of his mind high on drugs.

Since the White House deliberately is insisting that it’s “irrelevant” where Obama was during those missing hours that Lowry has asked about, we must assume I’m correct and the President of the United States was incapacitated from heavy narcotics use.

I would gladly retract this story if the White House would sufficiently explain Barack Obama’s whereabouts during those missing hours and prove he was not out of his mind on cocaine at the time (or gluttonously engaged in gay sex, as my friend Justine believes). 

You should know by now that whenever the Obama Regime stonewalls and absolutely refuses to reveal information mysteriously, there is a reason for it.

With this particular president, that reason more often than not involves drugs or gay sex (or a combination of both)…and just like with John F. Kennedy’s own drug use and sexual escapades, there are many people who will refuse to believe this about Obama for decades. But, at some point in the future I hope you live long enough to see people openly talking about Obama’s drug use and homosexuality, as it’s as clear as day for those of us who are gay and have known people with drug problems as rampant as this president’s. It’s not like the man disappeared off the face of the Earth into another dimension during those “missing hours”.  But, I suppose it’s uncomfortable for a lot of people to imagine what he was really doing during that mystery time.

So what do you think the POS was doing in those mystery missing hours?

Judge Jeanine on Benghazigate: Obama lied and left Americans to die

Obama left 4 Americans to die in Benghazi

Wesley Pruden, editor emeritus of The Washington Times, nails it:

“This is a very different White House than any the country ever had before. We’ve left Americans to die before, when there was no alternative … but no president before this one left Americans to die, begging for help, just to save an election.”

The betrayal at Benghazi

By Wesley Pruden – The Washington Times – May 10, 2013

The Benghazi hearings have come and gone, and Barack Obama and the Democrats turn now to stuffing charge and countercharge down the memory hole. The lies the president and his men and (mostly) women told in the days after the great betrayal must be swept from sight. Can’t everybody shut up?

The Democrats are getting the usual help from the correspondents and pundits who haven’t recovered from the bite of the tsetse fly. They don’t want to be awakened until it’s all over and it’s safe to go on to more exciting things, like budget hearings, elections in Lower Slobbovia and the environmental whine of the day. The New York Times reduced the Benghazi hearings to an antiseptic blip for the personnel file with its headline: “Envoy Testifies/Libya Questions/Led to Demotion.” A demotion is not what Benghazi is about, as the man demoted would agree.

The Benghazi panel set out to ask big questions, one still unanswered and one with an answer now clear enough. The first was why the diplomatic post in Benghazi was allowed to be an unguarded fort among hostile Apaches, the second was why the Obama administration was so persistent with its lies in the days after the attack.

Jay Carney, the president’s press agent, repeated the official White House view Wednesday that it’s all “politics.” Which of course it is, but not in the way Mr. Carney wants everyone to think it is. “Politics” is to Washington what “sex” is to a bordello; what would you expect to find in either place? Benghazi is not politics, but criminal incompetence and worse.

The House hearings on Wednesday produced no smoking gun, to employ another popular capital cliché, but added heartbreaking detail to the astonishing story of a smoking consulate and how the lives of an American diplomat and three of his colleagues were weighed by a cynical White House against the requirements of a close-fought presidential campaign. The ambassador and his men lost. Once lost, an ambassador can be replaced. The State Department is full of replacements. A political campaign once lost is done and gone.

Gregory Hicks, the No. 2 man in the American embassy in Tripoli, gave riveting detail — some of the sleepy journalists finally forced to cover the story were riveted awake — about how the ambassador was left twisting slowly, slowly in the poisonous smoke of the burning consulate. American special operations teams were enraged when they were told they couldn’t fly to the rescue. It was too far, senior officials said, and the rescuers would get there too late. There was no point in trying; the embassy would send an inspection team after breakfast the following morning.

The rescue teams were “furious,” Mr. Hicks testified, and couldn’t understand why they were told to stand down. “None of us should ever have to experience what we went through in Tripoli and Benghazi,” he said.

These riveting details would have given the lie to the campaign assurances of President Obama that everything was OK in the Middle East, that he had personally destroyed al Qaeda. The war on terror was over. It was back to “re-setting” relations with a warmer, friendlier Islam. No one understood this better than the campaign mavens at the White House, for whom the only national security concerns were to get their man a second term. Nothing and nobody else mattered.

That’s why they put out the absurd story that nobody in Libya, including the Libyans, believed: The attack on the consulate was caused by an “anti-Muslim” video that nobody had seen. Faithful if excited Muslims had been provoked by evil infidels in the U.S.A. The president and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave us lectures about religious tolerance, expressed in the usual empty condolences (“our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the dead”) and then they dispatched Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, to flood the television channels with carefully contrived disinformation.

This is a very different White House than any the country ever had before. We’ve left Americans to die before, when there was no alternative. The defenders at Wake Island and Corregidor were left to the tender mercies of the enemy, but no president before this one left Americans to die, begging for help, just to save an election. Benghazi was a brutal betrayal, writ large with the blood of innocents. The perfidy of the guilty, including any someone who may be dreaming up a campaign for 2016, won’t be forgotten.

Benghazi whistleblowers testify – watch live stream!

Three current State Department employees are expected to contradict their leadership in testimony before Republican Rep. Darrell Issa‘s oversight committee this morning. The whistleblowers are:

Four Americans were killed in the attack on the U.S. compound: U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department worker Sean Smith, and former U.S. Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

chris-stevens1Clockwise from top left: Amb. Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods.


Since announcing the hearing, Issa has trickled out testimony from the whistle-blowers — who allege the Obama administration did not do enough in response to the attacks — in an apparent attempt to build anticipation for the session. The testimony of Greg Hicks, a former top U.S. diplomat in Libya, has been Issa’s hallmark. Hicks is expected to discuss how the American military could have done more to protect those stationed in Benghazi.

Four Americans were killed in the Benghazi terrorist attack, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, when armed terrorists stormed the compound on September 11, 2012. Family members of those who were killed are expected to attend Wednesday’s hearing.

Hicks also will charge that the since the start of the attack, administration officials knew the culprit was al Qaeda and not — as was initially claimed — a spontaneous act that grew out of a demonstration over an anti-Islamic film made in the United States.
