Krauthammer Says the Obama/Clinton 10:00 PM Phone Call May Be ‘The Biggest Scandal Of All’

Hillary Clinton’s State Department Accountability Review Board also never interviewed the two highest ranking individuals directly dealing with the attack. It did not interview Hillary Clinton or Gregory Hicks. Hicks was the highest ranking official at the embassy after the Ambassador Stevens was killed. Hicks was on the phone with Clinton at 2 Am during the attack.

Never interviewed. Security was actually reduced in the weeks leading up to the attack, even though there was a huge hole the wall surrounding the compound. During the attack, no military assets were deployed and senior officers seeking to respond were told to stand down. Some have been since been relieved of their duty or reassigned.

Do not accept that someone else will cover this. Many of us served in the military so you would have the freedom to exercise your First Amendment rights.

Contact talk radio. Howie Carr. Call the Chump line. Call Michael Graham. Write a letter to the editor. All of you.

Call Rush. Sean Hannity. O’reilly, Caputo. Keep banging the drums. MAKE THIS IMPORTANT.

Call your congressmen. Does not matter that they ignore you. Stand up and be counted.

Include all that is written above. It is not being covered because those in power do not want it covered. That is why they are attempting to put the entire focus on the “talking points” and every other stupid thing they can.

If the people will lead, the leaders will follow.

n response to The Obama/Clinton 10:00 Phone Call:
On the O’Reilly Factor, tonight, Charles Krauthammer brought up the 10:00 pm phone call between Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama, whose activities on the night of the 9/11 attack in Benghazi have yet to be scrutinized. What did he do for those eight hours? Krauthammer posited that the answer to this question could be the biggest scandal of all.
Via Gateway Pundit:

I think there is a bigger story here that will in time come out. The biggest scandal of all, the biggest question is what was the president doing in those eight hours. He had a routine meeting at five o’clock. He never after during the eight hours when our guys have their lives in danger, he never called the Secretary of Defense, he never calls the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, he never called the CIA Director, Who does he call? But five hours in he calls the Secretary of State. And after the phone call she releases a statement essentially about the video and how we denounce any intolerance. It looks as if the only phone call is to construct a cover story at a time when the last two Americans who died were still alive and fighting for their lives. There’s the scandal and that has to be uncovered.”

Watch the video at the link.
As you may remember, Clinton said in a statement following the 10:00 pm phone call; “some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation.”
We now know that the talking points were manipulated to conceal the truth about what happened and pin the blame for the attack on a spontaneous demonstration against the “inflammatory” Youtube video. The Regime would continue the ruse until it was no longer tenable.
That 10:00 phone call may well be genesis of the YouTube video narrative.
One wonders if Obama consulted his longtime consigliere, Valerie Jarrett at some point between 5:00 pm and 10:00 pm…. Her role as Obama’s most trusted advisor has permitted her to involve herself in even the most sensitive foreign affairs.

That would surely be the case in this instance in light of Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan’s insightful observation:
“The Obama White House sees every event as a political event . Because of that, it could not tolerate the idea that the armed assault on the Benghazi consulate was a premeditated act of Islamist terrorism. That would carry a whole world of unhappy political implications and demand certain actions. And the American presidential election was only eight weeks away. They wanted this problem to go away, or at least to bleed the meaning from it.”

To rephrase Sen. Howard Baker famous questions from an earlier congressional investigation of a presidential cover-up called Watergate: What did Ms. Jarrett do, and when did she do it?

And why did they think they could get away with it? Because as Andrew McCarthy noted at NRO, they had always gotten away with lying in the past. There was no reason for them to think they wouldn’t get away with it, again.

 
 
 

Post Office Buildings for Sale… JUST A F.Y.I, . THE PLOT THICKENS

The US has entered into a contract with a real estate firm to sell 56 buildings that currently house U.S. Post Offices. The government has decided it no longer needs these buildings, many of which are located on prime land in towns and cities across the country.

The sale of these properties will fetch billions of dollars and a handsome 6% commission to the company handling the sales. That company belongs to a man named Richard Blum. Who is Richard Blum you ask?

Why the husband of Senator Dianne Feinstein, that’s who. What a bunch of crooks we have running this country!

Senator Feinstein and her husband, Richard Blum, stand to make a fortune. His firm, C.R. I., is thesole real estate company offering these properties for sale. Of course, C.R.I. will be making a 6% commission on the sale of each and every one of these postal properties.

All of these properties that are being sold are all fully paid for. They were purchased with U.S. taxpayers dollars, and they are allowed free and clear by the U.S.P.S. The only cost to keep them is the cost to actually keep the doors open and the heat and lights on. The United States Postal Service doesn’t even have to pay property taxes on these subject properties. Would you sell your house just because you couldn’t afford to pay the electric bill?

Well, the Post Office is.

How does a powerful U.S. Senator from San Francisco manage to get away with such a sweet deal?

A powerful United States Senator’s husband is standing by, all ready to make millions from a U.S. taxpayer funded enterprise.

No one in the mainstream media is even raising an eyebrow over his 6% commission on the sale of hundreds of millions of dollar’s worth of quasi-public assets.

Pass this info on before it’s pulled from the internet.

 
 
 

Scandal Update May 29th 2012

Scandal Update

Here are the latest developments in the various scandals surrounding the Obama Administration.

NBC News reports that letters received from conservative organizations clearly indicate that the IRS’ politically-motivated targeting of Christian and Tea Party groups “did not solely originate in the agency’s Cincinnati office.” Jay Sekulow with the American Center for Law and Justice is representing more than two dozen groups targeted by the IRS. He told NBC: “We’ve dealt with 15 agents, including tax law specialists — that’s lawyers — from four different offices, including (the) Treasury (Department) in Washington, D.C. So the idea that this is a couple of rogue agents in Cincinnati is not correct.”

In addition, it has been reported that former IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman visited the Obama White House more than 100 times during 2010 and 2011. In contrast, Commissioner Mark Everson visited the Bush White House only once during his tenure, from 2003 to 2007.

No doubt some of Shulman’s visits were related to the IRS’ role in the enforcement of Obamacare. But Shulman’s frequent visits took place when the IRS harassment of conservative organizations was at its peak. Democrats love to point out that Shulman was appointed IRS Commissioner by George W. Bush. But they neglect to mention that he is also a Democrat donor, giving $500 to the Democrat National Committee when Bush was up for reelection in 2004.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, wants to know more about the false Benghazi talking points used by U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice. Yesterday, Rep. Issa issued a subpoena to Secretary of State John Kerry demanding the State Department turn over “all documents and communications referring or relating to the Benghazi talking points.” Issa gave Kerry until June 7th to comply.

The left’s support for Obama is beginning to crack. Liberal law professor Jonathan Turley has penned an op-ed in USA Today demanding President Obama fire Attorney General Eric Holder for his “ignoble legacy,” adding that Holder’s “sins should be fatal for any attorney general.” To give you some idea of just how left-wing Turley is, he has filed suit on behalf of “marriage equality” for polygamists in Utah.

Senate GOP Goes To Court

Many conservatives have been rightly concerned about the lawlessness of this administration and the apparent lack of a response. Here is some good news: There has been a response, but it just takes time.

As you may recall, Barack Obama has expressed his frustration with the limits placed on him by the system of checks and balances our Founders created. Well, those checks and balances work both ways — making it difficult for the other branches of government to check the executive.

Consider the example of Obama’s extraordinary recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). Obama made the appointments when there wasn’t a congressional recess. Two federal courts have now declared those appointments unconstitutional. Of course, the Obama Administration is appealing to the Supreme Court.

Yesterday all 45 Senate Republicans signed on to a brief urging the high court to strike down Obama’s recess appointments. In a statement, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell argued, “If [President Obama] can override Senate procedures and second-guess its account of its actions, there is no telling what mischief he can achieve.” If the Supreme Court agrees, everything the NLRB has done could well be declared invalid.

“The Enemy Is Everywhere”

The BBC reported yesterday that British authorities have arrested ten people during a sweep of Islamic extremists. The arrests come in the aftermath of last week’s brutal murder of a British soldier in broad daylight. Not surprisingly, the attack has encouraged other jihadists to lash out.

A British prison guard was kidnapped Sunday by three Muslim inmates and beaten for hours before being rescued by a riot squad.

Recalling World War II-era posters warning, “The enemy is everywhere,” Dame Stella Rimington, the former head of Britain’s intelligence agency MI-5, is calling on British citizens “to act as the eyes and ears” of the police in order to expose radical Islamists. Rimington’s analogy, sadly, is accurate, as radical Islam has been tolerated for too long and has spread throughout parts of England.

Also over the weekend, a French soldier in a Paris suburb was stabbed in the neck. French police today arrested a 21 year-old Muslim convert who reportedly confessed to the attack and who “acted in the name of his religious ideology.”

The French Interior Minister admitted to the media that “no fewer than 120 French jihadists” have left the country to fight in Syria’s civil war, with the vast majority of them fighting alongside Al Qaeda terrorists. It is believed that 30 have returned to France.

Bachmann Announces Retirement

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) announced this morning that she will not seek reelection to Congress next year. Rep. Bachmann, chairman of the House Tea Party Caucus, is a stalwart conservative. A former tax attorney, Bachmann, the mother of five children who also welcomed 23 foster children into her home, has been a passionate advocate for traditional values.

Like any staunch conservative who dares to stand up for faith and family, she has been sliced, diced and smeared by the left and its media allies. No doubt she is looking forward to some quiet time with her family away from the glare of a hostile media. While her leadership in Washington will be missed, I am certain that she will remain an influential voice for our values for many years to come!
