Debunking the House Intelligence Report on Benghazi

Accuracy in Media

"...what difference at this point does it make..."

Editor’s Note: By Roger Aronoff

The report released last Friday on the September 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence has once again brought to the surface this story that will not go away. Not, certainly, until those responsible are held accountable, and a truthful and accurate version of events and motivations in the months and days leading up to this tragic chapter in American history has been established.

The media embraced the report as bipartisan vindication of what the Obama administration has argued: Namely that yes, mistakes were made, we did everything we could to protect our people, and have put into place remedies, and changes in policies, so that nothing like this happens again. But the evidence and the testimony say otherwise.

Top Obama Bundler Arrested For Child Rape And Sodomy, Media Stays Silent

Free Republic

Prominent Democrat Terrence P. Bean has been indicted for sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy with his boyfriend in a hotel room. He was arrested at his home in southwest Portland on Wednesday and charged with two counts of third-degree sodomy and one count of third-degree sex abuse. Portland police tracked down the 15-year-old boy whose testimony helped lead to the sex abuse indictment against Bean and his former boyfriend, Kiah L. Lawson. Bean and Lawson allegedly set up an encounter with the teen through the iPhone app “Grindr”. The popular app is a mobile social network that helps gay men find other local gay men or just curious men, for dating. The app advertises, “Meet the men nearest you with GPS.”

On Sept. 27, 2013, Bean, 66, and Lawson, 25, are accused of having sex with the 15-year-old boy at a Eugene hotel. Friday afternoon, Lawson pleaded not guilty to the three counts. Lawson’s attorney, Jeffrey Dickey, said “The surprising thing to me is Kiah was indicted in this case because it was Kiah who helped authorities find this kid.” He went on to say, “If someone is going to cooperate and be helpful for the police there should be some kind of reward for that. It could have a chilling effect on others coming forward.”

Bean’s attorney, Kristen Winemiller, said her client has been cooperating with authorities and that they look forward to clearing his name. It isn’t clear if Bean or Lawson knew that the boy was under age. The Lane County indictments follow an extremely unstable relationship between the two men. The problems allegedly started when Lawson found Bean was secretly videotaping his sexual encounters with Lawson and a handful of other men. Bean’s attorney claims Bean was not engaged in any illicit use of security cameras. She said, “Terry has a security system in the home which has been used for no purpose beyond the manner in which a security system is typically used, ” This story was first reported by the local press, and there have been vague references to sexual trouble for Bean and Lawson since June, but the national media has not picked it up.

Terry Bean is the co-founder of two of the biggest national campaign groups and raised more than $500,000 for Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election bid. Bean is a revered character among the gay rights activist community and with the Democratic Party. He helped to form the Human Rights Campaign and the Gay And Lesbian Victory Fund. A search of the Federal Election Commission’s campaign-finance database turns up thousands in donations every cycle by Bean to the Democratic Party’s most powerful leaders, including Hillary Clinton, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Sen. Dick Durbin, and Rep. Barney Frank, among others. Photos of Bean posted online show him flying on Air Force One with Obama.

Oops! Obama Realizes Exec. Privilege not Legal to Hide Fast, Furious Docs

JUDICIAL WATCH

After using executive privilege to withhold Fast and Furious records for two years, the Obama administration has quietly stopped exerting the power to hide information about the disastrous gun-running operation.

Judicial Watch attorneys discovered the extraordinary about-face in recent exchanges with Department of Justice (DOJ). JW has been a leader in exposing the Fast and Furious scandal and has filed several Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits against the federal agencies involved in the once-secret operation. Just last month JW obtained records showing that the president’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, was a key player in the Fast and Furious cover-up and that Obama exerted executive privilege for Holder’s wife and mother to conceal emails with the Attorney General involving the operation.

Barack Obama’s Assault On America

Weasel Zippers

It is a fundamental fight, and one we must win.

Via National Interest:

I present these musing under the rubric, “Requiem for the American Republic.” I do so with a profound sadness at the destruction wreaked upon our civic system through the decades-long phenomenon of uncontrolled immigration. In presenting his new policy of granting illegal immigrants legal status through executive action, President Obama said he did so in part because of “who we are as Americans.” Who we are is a nation of laws. Our government has ignored the law for a generation or more in allowing law-breaking immigrants to enter the country. Now the president doubles down on that assault on American law by promulgating an unconstitutional executive order.

Inevitably, those who are unconcerned about the flow of illegal immigrants—either through humanitarian impulses or because they see a political realignment in the making (or both)—can’t perceive why anybody would view the president’s action as the least bit malign.

But this is a brazen assault on the separation of powers doctrine of our Constitution. When the president says his action is “just like [what] law enforcement does every day,” he heralds the arrival in distilled form of Orwell’s “Newspeak.” Newspeak is a corrosive force, as Orwell made clear, because it contributes to the slow erosion of verities, such as the fundamental elements of the American Creed.

A longtime Clinton ally, assistant secretary of state for South Asian affairs in the Clinton administration, former Ambassador to Tunisia and donor, Robin Raphel, is at the center of an FBI counterintelligence  (spy) probe.

American investigators intercepted a conversation this year in which a Pakistani official said that his government was receiving American secrets from a prominent former State Department diplomat, officials said, setting off an espionage investigation.

Obama Also Issues “Ebola Amnesty”

Lost in the hoopla of President Obama’s enormous administrative amnesty affecting mostly Mexican and Central American illegal immigrants is that he also implemented a special protective order allowing people from Ebola nations to stay in the United States.

It’s amnesty on steroids! The special Ebola reprieve was issued separately-and quietly-via a Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a humanitarian program that’s supposed to be short-term. Instead, we’ve seen the provisional benefit grow into a continual U.S. residency plan for illegal aliens under both Republican and Democratic presidents. Besides those who have entered the U.S. illegally, TPS has also helped foreigners who have overstayed their visa permanently evade deportation. That makes the phrase “temporary” deceiving and somewhat of a joke.

WE WILL NOT ENGAGE': MICHELE BACHMANN REVEALS GOP PLANS TO IGNORE EXECUTIVE AMNESTY

Free Republic

“They acted as though the amnesty issue wasn’t even an issue. They said that the President is going to do what he’s going to do, and we are not going to get down in the mud with him. We are not going to engage, and what we are going to do is to talk about our positive solutions on jobs, the economy, education, and manufacturing,” Bachmann said.

She added that each congressman who spoke reiterated that not engaging Obama and staying positive was a “brilliant strategy.” “We will not engage,” she reiterated with disgust.

Bachmann, who was elected to Congress in 2006 and is ending her service this year, is stupefied by the Republican leadership not taking action or having a plan. “While the country is talking about amnesty, and the president is taking unconstitutional actions, our leadership wants to change the subject and not engage,” she said.

Bannon said he was “stunned” that, on the walk-up to a day that is going to go down as “one of the most important days in constitutional history,” there was no pre existing plan or course of action by the GOP. The Congresswoman asserts that Boehner and the leadership “think that the smarter strategy is to not engage.”

Earlier in the broadcast, co-host and Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow said that, after reading Breitbart News’ report on Friday about Republicans flying out of town after Obama’s speech without devising a plan, is evidence that “the Republican establishment doesn’t care about Obama passing executive amnesty.”

Marlow mused, “We’re having this debate: should there be a lawsuit? Should there be impeachment? Should the government be shut down? What should we be doing?”
