Friday Bits and Pieces

If it doesn’t fit the political narrative……it never happened and, “What difference at this point does it make”?  I am sure it makes a “difference” to the only person being held in a jail cell over the Benghazi debacle. You know, the guy who made a 15 minute video and was blamed by the Administration for inflaming the Muslim sensitivities, which then led to the full force of the Fed coming down on his head.

Sources: 3 al Qaeda operatives took part in Benghazi attack

One senior U.S. law enforcement official told CNN that “three or four members of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula,” or AQAP, took part in the attack.

Another source briefed on the Benghazi investigation said Western intelligence services suspect the men may have been sent by the group specifically to carry out the attack. But it’s not been ruled out that they were already in the city and participated as the opportunity arose. …

If the AQAP members were dispatched to Benghazi, it would be further evidence of a new level of co-operation among jihadist groups throughout the Middle East and North Africa, counterterrorism analysts say.

It seems the Obama narrative has fallen apart on Benghazi. One thing Bush figured out with the Iraq invasion, depose a dictator but do not leave a vacuum for terrorists to fill.

As for Syria…..dithering is the “course” taken by BO….never mind the “red line”.  Libya plays hard in this decision.

The Obama administration has returned to the idea of arming moderate Syrian rebels, current and former officials said, because many officials see it as one of the few steps available to shore up the opposition without drawing the U.S. military into the two-year-old civil war.

Advocates see delivering weapons as the least invasive of the alternatives available to President Barack Obama. One former official called it the “best of the bad options.”

About the Jason Collins coming out party….spent 8 years lying to his fiancé. Yeah, what a guy, so courageous.

Jason Collins’ former fiancee is freezing her eggs after NBA star ‘took eight  years away from her’

“But Collins did attempt to obscure his engagement. This is what he wrote: “When I was younger I dated women. I even got engaged.”

That sure sounds like someone who got engaged young, not someone who cancelled a wedding at the age of about 30 after an eight year relationship. While his statement was technically true (everything in our past was when we were younger), it had to have been intentionally misleading, especially coming from a Stanford grad.”

BO is busy telling the Mexicans how grateful he is for their “votes” and how deeply sorrowful he is that “90% of the guns” used by crime lords are from the US (that has been totally debunked). In reality major illegal guns going across the border came from a government which heralded and supported the Fast and Furious gun running debacle.

“And we also recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States,” he said. “I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms, and as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right and I always will.

“But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to [pass] common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people, that can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do.”

Sounds like he’s running for Preezy in Mexico too.  Same speech, different country.

Comment of the year….you know you’re going to love it!

    Hooray for Darrell…just telling it like it is…stupid bastards. 🙂

  2. This isn’t the first time MSNBC has been caught either deceptively or selectively editing video clips — far from it: When will they act like grown ups….

  3. Obamacare needs MORE money to implement the ….*cough*….”savings”. Just ask Harry Reid. Things are progressing as we thought they would…

  4. All the talk about Benghazi proves the fact that the msm will Not report on any issue unfavorable to O until it becomes the largest elephant in a very tiny room. Even then, it will only be mentioned in passing.
    Clearly, the O people were engaged in activities at the consulate that armed and aided the Syrian rebels. The fact that the last visitor to the consulate was an emissary from Turkey only underlines this. Since we are openly aiding terrorists in other countries, what else are they trying to cover up ?
    I would like to throw a question out there that continues to mystify me. Does anyone have a theory on why O is sympathetic to Islamist countries, and even the terrorists in them ?
    Nothing I have seen suggested really explains this. Why is it non pc to talk about the large swath of violence in that religion ? Why do so few of them come forward to denounce terrorism..? There is something much bigger at stake here that is being missed, I just can’t figure out what it is.. Is this just about oil ? Then why not approve Keystone ?
    I am stumped.

    • Denouncing another Muslim, accusing them of a crime, puts the accuser in a very bad place. The accuser is looked upon as the criminal. I worked for a Muslim family for a while…lost my job because when asked a question about theft I answered honestly. They have a twisted sense of honor.

    • The last time BO lived with his mother was in Indonesia…then shipped off to his grandparents. Soooo, it has a lot to do with his view of Islam…that and his “Muslim faith”

  5. I am so totally enjoying this…..BO’s “flexibility” isn’t helping Gazprom….or Putin.

  6. Do kids really think about “death” everyday?

    • Here’s an idea…use the RICO laws and destroy the gangs….maybe the murder rate in Chicago will go down.

    • Annie's Mom

      Sorry, I just couldn’t listen to it. I did read about it elsewhere…all I can say is what a schmutz she is. She certainly has been getting more political lately….

      • Her “political” moves started long before this….back when she went to the Senate to ask for money for NoFatKidsBehinds.

  7. They can run but, they cannot hide from the truth….the shaming of the liars continues apace…
    [As intelligence officials pieced together the puzzle of events unfolding in Libya, they concluded even before the assaults had ended that al Qaeda-linked terrorists were involved. Senior administration officials, however, sought to obscure the emerging picture and downplay the significance of attacks that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. The frantic process that produced the changes to the talking points took place over a 24-hour period just one day before Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made her now-famous appearances on the Sunday television talk shows. The discussions involved senior officials from the State Department, the National Security Council, the CIA, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the White House.]

  8. Yesterday Pelosi threw Biden under the bus….said Hillary was the “most qualified” candidate for the Presidency in this century….doesn’t say much for BO does it?

    • Anon

      It is funny how they all just dumped her in 08 in favor of what’s his name–saying he was the only one. It was especially appalling the way Nancy abandoned her. What is totally amazing, though, is how they all opened my eyes to the utter evil lurking in the entire democratic party. I used to be one of them and now I would rather scratch a chalk board than listen to the nonsense they espouse. Funny how people can change.

      • Remember, Hill wasn’t as ready for prime time as BO….Dems told us so. Called her and Bubba “racist” among other things. Nothing was more evil than the Dems working for BO and the s*** they pulled in the primaries.

  9. Pelosi and Biden would make quite a couple…The Alz and the Heimers.

  10. The real truth about Benghazi will not come out unless Hillary announces a WH run.
    Although for the droolers, this little drama will not matter…Hill and Bill will have to figure out how to dance their way out of this one.

    • Lamb should be fired, not relegated to another desk……Hillary may have traveled “a million miles” but, I don’t see her as the greatest, most competent SoS. She knew what was going on, just like BO did. An attack on an embassy was bound to cross her desk as well as his. Both of them liars to preserve the PC attitude of the “we killed bin Laden” and “Al Qaeda is on the run”. They make me sick

  11. this is really one of the worst ideas ever….plays right into anti-gun agenda. Keep it in the courts where it belongs!!

  12. Nuance? Give. Me. A. Break. We’ve been “nuanced” to death. As the media and advisors keep explaining the “nuance” BO meant, we hear exactly what was said. They really think we’re stupid.

    [“The idea was to put a chill into the Assad regime without actually trapping the president into any predetermined action,” said one senior official, who, like others, discussed the internal debate on the condition of anonymity. But “what the president said in August was unscripted,” another official said. Mr. Obama was thinking of a chemical attack that would cause mass fatalities, not relatively small-scale episodes like those now being investigated, except the “nuance got completely dropped.”]
