The two Benghazi scandals (bumped)

In the immediate aftermath of the attack last September on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, our media acted more as amplifiers for the Obama campaign and the Obama administration, parroting campaign talking points (about the supposed inappropriateness of then-Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s critique of the administration) and failing to question the official explanation for the attack (that it was a spontaneous uprising in response to a video about which no one ever heard).  In short, all too many in the legacy media reported the story as if their job was to amplify what they heard from the Obama team rather than investigate how said team handled the attack.

The first scandal is thus that of the media giving short shrift to a story with the potential to embarrass the incumbent administration in the midst of the presidential campaign.

The second scandal — and the much bigger one — is the attempts of that administration, with top officials, perhaps up to and including the then-Secretary of State and the President of the United States, to mislead the public for political gain.  Citing the Interim Progress Report released by five House Republican committee chairmen released last mont, Michael Barone reported that 

. . . the accounts given by the Obama administration at the time were misleading — deliberately so.

It noted that State immediately reported the attack to the White House Situation Room and two hours later noted an al Qaeda affiliate’s claim of responsibility. There was no mention of a spontaneous protest of an anti-Muslim video.

Yet Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and press secretary Jay Carney spoke repeatedly for days later of a video and a protest. Clinton assured one victim’s family member that the video-maker was being prosecuted.

With more news trickling out in the nine days since Barone posted his piece, it’s becoming increasingly clear that there was a lot more deliberate misleading than initially reported.

State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland seemed particularly intent on excising references to terrorist involvement in the attacks.  The Obama team wanted to spin the story and offer a version at odds with that of the President of Libya.

This story raises a whole host of questions, most of which should have been addressed to the president — and his team — last September — and not just about how (and why) they changed the talking points, but also about why the State Department had refused to give our diplomatic personnel in that unstable country the additional security requested.  Any why the president, in the immediate aftermath of the attack, chose to attend a campaign fundraiser in Las Vegas.

And why our media found this story less interesting that a crazy, stupid remark made by a Republican Senate candidate in Missouri.

  1. I hope it brings down the Obama administration and does indeed destroy Hillary’s bid for the presidency. May God help us all if Hillary does become the next president of the United States.

  4. So, yet again, those of us who said this was a scandal and a cover up from the beginning are proven right; and the SCOAMF’s shills who proclaimed that this was just something ginned up for political purposes are proven wrong.

    Comment by V the K — May 6, 2013 @ 7:17 am - May 6, 2013

  5. V and K, it was obvious from the outset. The MSM were just deep in the tank for Obama protecting him. When the great mess of Obamacare is fully implemented and the horrors it brings forth and exposed, I expect even more peope will be begin to see the light.

    Comment by SC.Swampfox — May 6, 2013 @ 8:09 am - May 6, 2013

  6. Just like “Fast and Furious”, the “Benghazi Caper” will be swept under-the-Rug by the Liberals on the Hill and in the MSM to protect not only The Won’s legacy—but also Hillary Clinton’s shot at the White House in 2016.

    Comment by Ted B. (Charging Rhino) — May 6, 2013 @ 8:58 am - May 6, 2013

  7. Might be a third.

    If the state department in collusion with the White House sought to change the talking points to blame a YouTube video and video maker, did they also pressure the US attorney to prosecute the video maker? I think the fact that they blamed this guy and he is in prison is an extreme abuse of power.

    Comment by Just Me — May 6, 2013 @ 10:22 am - May 6, 2013

  8. I am not inclined toward “conspiracy theories” and I am not implying that one is at work here. But, I do believe that part of the cover up concerns the sexuality of Ambassador Chris Stevens. In the same sense that the MSM has avoided Kermit Gosnell in order to keep the discussion of abortion tamped down, I believe that all (including Issa and the Republicans) parties involved in looking at Benghazi are tip-toeing around Chris Stevens’ posthumous right to privacy in his sexual life.

    The problem here is that every ambassador’s “private” proclivities are monitored by someone close to him to keep track of where he might get involved in a position to be compromised and consequently compromise his role as ambassador and his mission.

    Stevens has a long history in the region:

    Stevens, 52 and single, served as a special envoy to the Libyan Transitional National Council last year from March to November, according to his State Department biography. During his 21 years in the Foreign Service he also served in Jerusalem, Damascus, Cairo and Saudi Arabia.

    Stevens, who spoke French and Arabic, was a Peace Corps volunteer in Morocco where he taught English for two years before returning to northern California to get his law degree from the University of California.

    The CIA, the NSA, special forces and others were quartered nearby in what the MSM has called a CIA facility. The facts shoe that it was an interagency headquarters for the job of getting weapons that had been under Qaddafi’s control and were getting into the hands of terrorists. This included Man-portable air-defense systems (MANPADS or MPADS) which are shoulder- launched surface-to-air missiles (SAMs).

    For some reason, Ambassador Stevens rushed to Benghazi. He flew from Europe to Tripoli and then straight to Benghazi impelled by some sort of “urgent” reason.

    The people in the “spook” business are intent on knowing what that impelling reason was. Quietly they wonder if it was the ancient “honey pot trap.” That is to say, suppose a lover induced Stevens to get to Benghazi ASAP. The classic set-up; the honey pot trap.

    Now, suppose that the political correctness screams that come out in the form of “what difference does it make” are keeping Stevens’ sexuality under wraps. In doing so, there is a tacit agreement by all parties concerned to cover-up what may be a basic ingredient in this SNAFU which has fast become a full blown CLUSTERF*CK.

    I go back to Gosnell. He is NOT the face of the abortion business. But the way he has been “not covered” by the MSM would make you think that he is the very soul and character of the abortion industry. The MSM has really shot themselves in their vital parts in this one. They may actually have to come out and discuss abortion in a civil manner.

    Ditto the effort to protect the “kids” in Boston who made pressure cooker bombs independent of any association with radical Islam. Why, the surviving bomber is a mere child. A Trayvon Martin as it were.

    The nut case that murdered the kindergarten kids at Sandy Hook is the face of every person who would own an “assault” gun. (Not that Jodi Arias is the face of every woman who owns a knife that becomes an “assault knife.”)

    So, if Stevens and the men who died violently trying to protect and save him were all the victims of a honey pot trap, it could be of utmost political correctness to keep that part covered up.

    The problem is, how do you do that? Who or what compelled Stevens to rush to Benghazi? It is clear that who or whatever caused him to do so, he was where “they” wanted him when “they” attacked and murdered him.

    Front Page Magazine reported:

    The al-Qaeda affiliated men who sexually abused and killed Gaddafi are the same men who sexually abused and killed America’s ambassador.

    That allegation of sexual abuse has appeared elsewhere and may be discredited, but it is still an important rumor, urban legend, or ignored fact. It seems to fall under the “what difference does it make” rubric in the political correctness set. After all, we must not speak ill of radical Islam.

    There is much reason to turn to who the Ambassador to Egypt was at the time and how they handled their embassy attack and the relationship with between Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin (Anthony Weiner’s wife) and her mother and her mother’s relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the YouTube video no one has ever seen.

    But that would extend these comments through to tomorrow and I have said quite enough already.

  9. The MSM will never let this get to a “what did he know and when did he know it” moment. Obama and Hillary will probably get a walk with some lower functionary getting the blame.

    Comment by eeyore — May 6, 2013 @ 10:35 am - May 6, 2013

  10. Unfortunately, I agree with Eyeore. The smartest woman in the world and the Greatest Most Dreamiest American Precedent Ever will continue to feign ignorance. They were not informed, they were briefed that the events were due to an inflammatory video, nobody ever said more security was needed in Libya, they didn’t get a reminder on their calendars that it was 9/11, blah, blah, blah. Some low level flunkies will be tossed under the bus (again!). The team that brought us “Smart Power”, moveable red lines, “flexibility” with Russia, dismantling of national defense, offending and alienating allies while bowing to people who want to kill us will skate. They will continue to be feted at cocktail parties and stay in power as they destroy America from within. The MFM will continue to ignore the truth and circle the wagons around Madame Suckretary Cankles and Teh Won, while smearing those who try to tell the truth. I’m sure the media is already doing some thorough opposition research and combing through the garbage of the whistle blowers.

    Comment by runningrn — May 6, 2013 @ 11:11 am - May 6, 2013

  11. Eeyore is probably right, but it’s a pity we don’t have more of a voice in the MSM. Because, in essence, what we are being asked to swallow, is that Hillary and Barack are grotesquely incompetant, almost criminally so. And that’s the most BENIGN interpretation.

    It didn’t occur to either of them to take precautions on 9/11, because in Obamaworld, there IS no Muslim terrorism. There was no need to scramble resources because of the fog of war because … well, I guess because for Obama to act, he needs 100% guarantees.

    Even interpreting this as favorably as possible to this Administration, it demonstrates how neither individual should have ever held the office they did (Hillary) or do (Obama). And yet not only does no one care, but this is pretty much the go-to excuse in this Administration.

    Holder is so incompetant, so grotesquely stupid, that he knew nothing of Fast and Furious.

    Napolitano is equally unqualified, since she had no idea illegal aliens were being released from custody “due to the sequester,” before said sequester even went into effect.

    Have we really fallen so far that we will accept callow children in office? That the same media and Democrat Party that screamed about Bush and Cheney for eight long years (thirteen since some of them never stopped, even when the Chicago Messiah was elected) now seems unable to find anything to criticize?

    And again, that’s if you are as charitable as possible in interpreting the events. It is more likely (if not blatantly obvious) that former Secretary Clinton and President Obama (and to lesser extent, the MSM) willingly allowed this to happen, covered it up, lied, blamed and imprisoned a filmmaker for it (who is still in prison, BTW) and basically danced on the graves of the deceased for AN ELECTION.

    They did this to keep Obama in office.

    Well, if they don’t get their comeuppance in this life, they certainly will in the next.

    Thank you for posting!

  12. To #9, 10 and 11: I share your cynicism, but I truly believe this is the BEGINNING of the undoing of this thug administration. There’s just too much starting to be revealed for even the “mainstream” media lapdogs to be able to cover up.

    Keep your fingers crossed!!!

    Comment by Bastiat Fan — May 6, 2013 @ 12:30 pm - May 6, 2013

  13. In all seriousness. Heliotrope needs to be given a set of keys to this blog.

    I trust his work in the comment threads speaks for itself, making any need for me to show my reasoning irrelevant.

    Comment by My Sharia Moor — May 6, 2013 @ 2:06 pm - May 6, 2013

  14. There isn’t a man or woman on this planet or in this blog that craves to see this president and his disgusting cronies sent to hell on an “impeachment rail.” But, it ain’t gonna happen.

    Heliotrope raised some incredible points that bowled me over. Things I was not even considering. WOW! “My Sharia Moor” you are right on!

    I, along with “Bastiat Fan” share #9, #10, and #11′s cynicism as to how the MSM or any other similar entity will cover for this president and “The Wicked Witch of the East” and her desire to be president. (God help us)

    Now to why this will NEVER end up as we would like: There is no way on this earth that a white(caucasian) Senate and a vastly white House of Represenatives is going to IMPEACH the first BLACK president. Zero! Zip! Nada! Zilch! I just don’t see it. There isn’t a “white” politician that wants to face that $hit $torm. And don’t think for a New York minute that obama and his handlers are not aware of it.

    Personally, I hope and pray that the full story is exposed – that obama is at a minimum mortally wounded, and that some of his “kool aid” drinkers will finally move on.

    Comment by mixitup — May 6, 2013 @ 2:41 pm - May 6, 2013

  15. My Sharia Moor and mixitup,

    Thanks for the props. I would add that the Democrats (demonizingrats) are in the “wagons circled” around Hillary mode as she is their gal for 2016. So, their SNAFU’s in Libya, Egypt, Syria, Iran and bubbling up in Turkey have to be contained along with protecting The Won from having his fingerprints examined and looking past radical Islam and screaming “homophobia” if the subject of Stevens’ sexuality arises.

    What depresses me is that the demonizingrats can handle all of those tasks simultaneously and the Republicans can’t seem to generate a clear, principled charge.

    Comment by heliotrope — May 6, 2013 @ 3:14 pm - May 6, 2013

  16. Heliotrope,

    You underestimate the degree of complexity and lack of coherent behavior that is added to a situation when the ends do not justify the means.

    For the Barack Obama Party, staying in power is all that matters. We are already aware that Hillary Clinton has no limits on lies, deceit, and outright violations of the law that she will practice to get and stay in power; now we have confirmed that Barack Obama is just as bad, and perhaps even worse.

    Because of this, Obama supporters and the Obama Party do not have to trouble themselves with coherent stories, moral objections, or even concern over lives lost. To the Obama Party, the people killed in Benghazi were the necessary eggs to produce whatever perverse omelet Obama was attempting; their crime was being too obvious to disappear, as Obama has done to everyone else involved in the Benghazi affair.

    Republicans lose in comparison to Obama Party members for the same reason Israeli soldiers and our troops are blown up by al-Qaeda and other Islamist groups; we choose to risk our own lives rather than to obliterate entire civilizations and civilian groups.

    I confess I do not know what the answer is. Perhaps it lies in hoping that people will recognize the depravity of the Obama Party before the death camps start.

  17. Hillary was part of the investigation into the cover-up of the Watergate break-in. She was fired for being overly enthusiastic.
    But now people are asking about what she is covering up. And she does not like it at all.

    Comment by Bill G — May 6, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - May 6, 2013

  18. NDT,

    I read this with great interest:

    Mike Vanderboegh is an ex-communist who founded the Three Percenters Movement, which is based on the reality that only three percent of the early American colonists took to the battlefield and still won. He is also the guy who not only broke the Fast and Furious story in December of 2010, but continuously exposed breaking stories and accounts from confidential sources regarding this scandal.

    Vanderboegh is spot on concerning Collectivist butchers and the intentions of the Obama Administration. There are a couple of items in his video I especially enjoy. One concerns the language of Collectivists – a ‘Radish’ is a derogatory term that indicates a Communist who is only red on the outside. A ‘Tomato’ is red through and through. But a ‘Killer Tomato’ is a Communist who is willing to pull the trigger. Obama is the leader of the ‘Killer Tomatoes.’ I also enjoyed Mike’s daughter’s explanation of the difference between a Communist and a Socialist. Paraphrasing here… a Communist is a Socialist who has found his AK47 and is not afraid to pull the trigger. A Socialist is a Communist who has not found his AK47 yet and is afraid to pull the trigger. How true that is. All ‘isms are just different vantage points of the same view.

    What “low-information” Republican, conservatives and libertarians do not understand is that they are up against is a massively funded and coordinated effort to fundamentally transform America into a true communist state. John Podesta and the Center for American Progress are engaged in mobilizing the troops in the following areas of Progressive community organizing: Campus Progress, education, Doctors for America, Faith and Progressive Policy, Just Jobs, Legal Progress, Progressive Studies Programs, Reel Progress, Science Progress, Sustainable Security, etc. They target civil liberties, the economy, energy and the environment, gay and transgender grievances, health care, housing, immigration, the media, the military, national security, poverty, public opinion, race and ethnicity, regulation and markets, religion and values, tax reform, technology and science, women’s rights, etc.

    As an example, we up against The Center for American Progress which is not just another approach to representative democracy. It is a well organized and well oiled machine which is dedicated to morphing a capitalist economy into a socialist economy. The State replaces personal responsibility, self reliance, personal drive and ambition with a system of “social justice” meted out by government elites who sit in constant judgement of what constitutes “equality” and moving units of “equality” around until their (the elite’s) sense of proper balance is put in place.

    Since power abhors a vacuum, any vacuum the elite can detect is immediately filled with their power for exacting their definition of equality. Eventually or soon enough, the elites discover that some human lives suck up too many equality units without concomitant return to the society as a whole. Mental deficients, crippled up people, costly lay-abouts, etc. are snuffed out for the greater good of the society as a whole. From there, the downward spiral to where all Communist societies have gone before is just a matter of time.

    I didn’t go there, because waking people up to the incidents that point toward the power of the state is hard enough. Waving the bloody shirt of what will follow only serves to help the other side brand one of being a hyperbolic nut case.

    The run-of-the-mill Progressives are fairly vapid and fill the Lenin description of “useful idiots” without qualification. All Lenin-style statism leadership needs is a horde to pick up the “hope and change” theme and wash him with their votes and tears of approbation. After that, Obama and his killer tomatoes can go to work in their game as the useful idiots continue to be the faithful who worship and adore him. Plenty enough of them will sit in a hovel with the Dear Leader’s picture on the wall as the remnants of prosperity collapse around them.

    However, plenty of the adorers are self-activated enough to understand that by joining the politburo they can become more equal than all the others and become key players in the redistribution machinery. They become the petty satraps of the statist world and missionaries of the Progressive doctrine.

    The Republicans, conservatives and libertarians sit idly by and watch this happen. Only the TEA Party is a huge threat to the Progressives because they are the one and only force aligned against the huge and intricate Progressive (Communist) movement which has its cells everywhere. The Progressives started their march in the early 1900′s and they have been winning important inroads ever since. The TEA Party can’t count on even Fox News to confront how the Progressives play the game.

    The good news is that Cruz-Lee-Rand have formed a second power center within the Senate to off-set the McConnell Republican Affinity Society. It is a case of power abhorring a vacuum and rising to fill the void. Often enough, the “opposition” is not limited to just one choice. The “Young Turks” in this case are rebelling against the business-as-usual games being played by the professional politicians who are fully controlled by the “inside-the-beltway” mores.

    Our ruling class of professional politicians have corrupted our economy and society with a form of crony capitalism and state control of the economy that rewards the elites and screws the rest as they regulate and manipulate the natural processes of capitalism.

    Either we break this stranglehold that compliant politicians and crony capitalism have on our society or we fall. The dot-com “bubble” and “Enron” and “derivatives” and the “housing bubble” and “sub-prime” loans and the Paulson TARP fiasco and “quantitative easing” and the “stimulus” are all smoke and mirror games that can not be justified by common sense, basic economics.

    Snake oil and snake oil salesmen are at the core of what ails us. Progressives are just another iteration of snake oil salesmen who have changed the shade of their lipstick, are horses of a different color and have taught pigs to fly.

    Comment by heliotrope — May 6, 2013 @ 7:28 pm - May 6, 2013

  19. Chris Stevens was meeting with a Turkish diplomat who left the compound safely just before the attack. I feel he was set up by this diplomat and then his body was dragged out a window and missing for hours. Has Congress even jnvestigated where his body really was? He could have been kidnapped initially to be held as a hostage to be exchanged for the blind sheik or some other reason. Something stinks here. I think the whole thing was a set up with the collusion of our administration for whatever reason and that is what should be investigated. This was no surprise.

    Comment by North Dallas Thirty — May 6, 2013 @ 3:34 pm

    NDT:
    The unfortunate but necessary answer can be found in an item which you highlighted in another thread just a couple of days ago:

    Poll: 29% of Registered Voters Believe Armed Revolution Might Be Necessary in Next Few Years

    Sorry, folks. But you can’t debate these immoral monsters (The Mocha Messiah, Shrillary, et al) and their legions of supporters into ‘seeing the light’.
    Internet blogs and lecture podiums ain’t gonna cut it anymore (if they ever could).

    These people are relentless, and they understand and respond appropriately to one form of expression and one ONLY: force.
    It’s the only tool to be found in their chest and, by their reckoning, the only way they can achieve their Utopia.
    And they use it every single day; through regulation, legislation borne of bribery and cloakroom dealing, increasingly militarized (and occasionally renegade) domestic law enforcement, the IRS and it’s ever lengthening tentacles, and on and on and on.

    Measured tones and ‘ad nauseum’ recitations of facts and law might work with some of them (though damned few), but it’s the light of a false (and dangerous) comfort that you’re basking in if you think that adhering to some rhetorical Marquis of Queensbury rules are going to carry the day.
    Because they won’t.

    Never mind ‘eggs’ and ‘omelettes’; we’re talking about ‘people‘ and ‘murder‘, and nothing more elegant than that.

    And for those of you who are alarmed (or worse), for instance, by some of the things I’ve done in confronting some of these same SOBs here: better stiffen your lip, because it’s going to get a hell of a lot worse than ‘bad language’ and ‘hurt fee-wings’ before it’s all over.

    Of course, if anyone can suggest any less unpleasant alternatives, I’d be more than interested in reading them.
    But don’t risk a cranial hemorrhage: it’s very late in the day for this country, and the ‘Menu of Effective Remedies’ is getting shorter and shorter.

    I hope you are wrong. My remaining hope is based on the belief that the tipping point is still near enough to the balance point to tip the other way and buy us more time to fight the Progressive pollution further back.

    My cynical side says that actual revolution is a goner. If the mobocracy is set on wealth redistribution and we can not stem that tide, then everything else is moot. We will become a nation of shop keepers who keep two sets of books and don’t trust anyone.

    Comment by heliotrope — May 6, 2013 @ 8:45 pm - May 6, 2013

  23. …to fight the Progressive pollution further back.

    What fight?

    When people get the vapors over ‘lack of civility’ and are preoccupied with ‘feelings’, etc., then a) I’d suggest their priorities, however well-intentioned, are misplaced and b) that’s not a very good sign that there exists the requisite gumption (at the present time, anyway) to get a good (and in the end, successful) fight so much as an inch off the ground.

    No wonder we’re swirling the bowl.

  24. Heliotrope: I can add nothing to your post, except that people MUST learn about the history of “political correctness” and THE FRANKFURT SCHOOL. They’ve been at this a really long time, and if we are to right the “ship of state,” we have to start NOW. By being FEARLESS and telling the truth, no matter how many lowlifes are “offended.”

    Comment by Bastiat Fan — May 6, 2013 @ 11:35 pm - May 6, 2013

  25. Bastiat Fan and Jman1961,

    The Frankfort School is one chilling cesspool of advanced propaganda dedicated to corrupting common sense through constant beatings with the rationality sledgehammer.

    The person who encounters The Frankfort School in a casual manner does not realize that they were not the fountain of modern leftism so much as the seed bed from which more radical leftists took root. That its acolytes spread rapidly to the American universities and flourished is the point of importance for us. These people were dedicated “social evolutionists” who invented the language and mystique which they promoted and turned into “conventional wisdom” in their drive to restructure society.

    Our universities are awash in “revisionists” who are forever challenging the “truth” and distorting the facts by emphasizing the contradictions. They proceeded on the “understanding” that any belief system is a dead end based on a desire to believe what you believe which is not rational. The mess they got themselves into was that their own operating assumptions were a belief system and they soon found that they could not separate their rationalization from the path that led to the Holocaust and the path that would lead to their vaunted societal enlightenment.

    Modern leftists ignore all of that and just pick the parts and pieces that fit the agenda and work effectively in their power trips. Certainly, “hope and change” applied to those Nazis who were in charge of “the final solution” as much as it applied to any Chicago ghetto dweller voting as often as possible for Obama.

    Our media, Hollywood, politicians, neighbors, churches, schools, advertisers, and society in general have been brainwashed with the manipulation of the language by the political correctness gestapo. The reason Nancy Pelosi sounds like a babbling idiot is because she is a babbling idiot. But, she babbles political correctness the way it is supposed to be babbled and for her tribe, she sounds like the Goddess of Reason.

    My last “hope” for our society is that it will get a momentary stomach full of being fed this crap from every direction and slip a Ted Cruz into the White House. We need a person who will speak truth to crap in a powerful way and who will win a few battles to help get the ball rolling.

    I am not so naive as to think it has great chances of happening, let alone succeeding if it does happen. But I have no faith in “our side” reaching the point of rebelling.

    Brietbart and Beck have been the true revolutionaries so far. We can not pin our hopes on a messiah to come along and get it all just the way we want it. But neither can we afford to continue supporting a bunch of reeds that sway back and forth in the wind. Republicans are more interested in being fat and happy in Washington than being bold.

    The “libertarians” are sitting in a corner throwing stones, the “moderates” are looking for ways to be liked and have a neighborhood picnic, the leftists have no principles and the conservatives will sacrifice the advantage to hold onto a minor principle in the face of winning a major victory. That is the way the cookie crumbles.

    While I oppose gay marriage on principle, I hardly think it comes anywhere close to the problems we have with our economy, immigration mess, battle with radical Islam, crappy public education, dissolution of the family and the importance of the family as cultural bedrock, and more. Yet, through the magic of political correctness, Sandra Fluke, gay marriage, arugula, Trayvon Martin, and so much more navel lint get the spotlight.

    The Frankfort School was the spider laying down the threads from which the leftists wove the tangled web of deception in which they trap their victims all in the name of enlightenment while they practice raw, Stalinist power.

    If the surviving Boston bomber does not get a gig at Columbia University, I want to know why.

  26. That its acolytes spread rapidly to the American universities and flourished is the point of importance for us.

    And they were allowed to populate the mass media and cultural institutions as well; conservatives abandoned these starting in the 60s with the idea, perhaps, that “the business of America is business”.
    But that really isn’t the ‘business’ of America at all.
    The business of America is culture and values, which the schools and the media and religious institutions shape; business doesn’t have a hand in that.

    But I have no faith in “our side” reaching the point of rebelling.

    We do have a head start, however.
    We comprise the vast majority of firearms owners.

    I wonder what the poll numbers would have been (had polls existed then) of the citizenry in the ‘run up’ to the Revolutionary War.
    There were surely a large segment that were loyal to the Crown (leftists). And possibly as many who pitched their tents in the ‘neutrality’ camp (moderates). And there were plenty of people in the Tea Party brigade (conservatives).

    Regardless of what the numbers were, they pulled it off, or we wouldn’t be having this conversation today (perhaps we would, but NOT in the circumstances in which we’re having it).

    If the surviving Boston bomber does not get a gig at Columbia University, I want to know why.

    Jealousy, perhaps: Mr. Ayers and Ms. Dohrn won’t submit recommendations on his behalf because they want the “professor & ex-terrorist bomber/murderer franchise” all to themselves.

    Or a gig at NPR?

    Hell, Tsarnaev could go for the big prize – his own MSNBC show.

  38. Mights well save yore confederate money, boys, ’cause this not only will not sink the Democrat Party or the corrupt media but won’t keep the Hildabeast from being elected president. The former republic is beyond saving.
