Stunner! Benghazi Was a Base for Illegal Arms Shipments to Syria

The Independent Sentinel

Illegal arms were shipped to Syrian rebels from Libya and this could be the reason Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton lied and claimed the attack on the consulate was the result of a video.

Seymour Hirsch published an investigative report stating that there is an addendum to the Senate Intelligence Committee report which explains what the CIA was doing in Benghazi. Our government was shipping arms from Libya through Turkey to Syrian rebels before we realized they were al-Qaida.

The reason the government lied was probably to conceal an illegal operation to arm Syrian rebels. Ambassador Stevens was the coordinator.

It wasn’t authorized by Congress and it is a blatant violation of law. The CIA claims they were only liaison’s with MI-6 and they didn’t have to get permission from the Senate Intelligence Committee. That is ludicrous. The British had left Benghazi by the time of the attack.

That needs investigating!

5 Ways Obama Has Destroyed The Rule Of Law In America

When you allow unlawful acts to go unpunished, you’re moving toward a government of men rather than a government of law; you’re moving toward anarchy. And that’s exactly what we’re doing. — John Wayne

All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. — George Orwell

 

Tell me why any American should respect the law?

Because it’s moral? Not necessarily. Slavery was once the law of the land. Abortion is the law of the land today. Even in a nation like America, it’s not unusual for laws to be unfair, unjust, and even immoral.

Is it because laws represent the will of the people? Not anymore. Today, the “law” is often summarily created from murky statutes by unelected bureaucrats who face no consequences for destroying people’s lives.

Well, is the law at least equally applied? Absolutely not. Your political affiliation and how well connected you are to the regime in charge can have a direct bearing on whether you’re prosecuted for breaking the law and how serious the penalty will be.

So, what’s left?

Obama’s legacy: Liar in Chief

American Thinker

Excellent editorial in today’s Washington Examiner about presidential lying. Specifically, why so many Americans – 61% according to a Fox News poll – think that the president lies “most of the time” and “some of the time.”

It comes as no surprise today that Obama’s defenders are sparing no invective for Fox News in the wake of that survey. But it was the president, not Fox News, who repeatedly and knowingly misled the American people with two infamous Obamacare lies: “You can keep your health insurance if you like it. Period. You can keep your doctor. Period.” For better or worse, Obama will forever be known as the president who chose repeatedly to propagate two falsehoods. Those two lies were profoundly significant because they were designed to hide the truth about how Obamacare would affect the daily lives and health of hundreds of millions of Americans.

Since it became painfully clear in 2013 that Obama had lied about Obamacare since 2009, it has been increasingly difficult for many Americans to continue accepting at face value his statements on other major public issues. In both the Benghazi and IRS scandals, for example, Obama claimed to have known nothing about them until they were reported in the national media.

But if that were true, why has the president’s attorney general and so many other of his most prominent appointees withheld thousands of documents subpoenaed by Congress and requested by journalists under the Freedom of Information Act? Are there passages in those withheld documents that make it clear Obama knew much more than he has admitted?

 

Such questions go to the heart of the issue of the president’s probity. If he lied about keeping health insurance plans and doctors, why should fellow citizens believe his claim that nothing else could have been done to save four Americans in Benghazi, or that there isn’t “a smidgen of corruption” at the IRS? That is Obama’s legacy and his burden.

Court Documents: Fast and Furious Guns Flowed Back into Texas and New Mexico

“I was singled out for punishment even though all my sales to these people were reported as required by law, and the buyers were legally able to buy the firearms,” Garland said. “The ex-police chief, Angelo Vega, the ex-mayor, Eddie Espinoza, and Blas Gutierrez, the village trustee, and everyone else who bought from me, need to be interviewed. They all asked, on the record, ‘Why is Ian here, he had no conspiracy with us? We only used his store, as well as others, to buy from.’ The connection between Arizona’s Fast and Furious is clear, crystal clear, and this is in my pre-sentencing report.”

“I am Australian born, a U.S. citizen, and damn proud of it,” Garland said. “I am fighting because the government’s lawyers held back information that could have exonerated me. Plus, I got sentenced under the wrong guidelines, which gave me a harsher penalty than even the charges warranted.”

According to the El Paso Times, Garland is planning on sharing the information he has regarding the ties of Fast and Furious to El Paso and Nuarez with Mexican authorities.

I would highly recommend reading Diana Washington Valdez’s excellent, full report here.

The Obama administration has a lot of blood on its hands and Congress just does not seem willing to hold anyone in the administration accountable. Hundreds of Mexicans are dead, including a Mexican beauty queen and a Mexican police chief. At least two federal agents are dead. All of these people have died from gunshot wounds from weapons obtained via Operation Fast and Furious.

While much of the news of late on Freedom Outpost has centered on the Bundy Ranch Siege, numerous references have been made to the similarities of Ruby Ridge and Waco. Yet, the biggest missing agency in the Bundy saga is the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE). They are, however, at the center of the Fast and Furious scandal. This illegal federal agency also has blood on its hands. It proceeded as if everything was OK, watched the guns walk across the border, and when the whistle was blown on the operation, sought to discredit the whistleblowers, even threatening them.

Eric Holder has been continuing in his capacity as Attorney General for nearly two years since being held in contempt of Congress. Obama continues to hold executive privilege over releasing documents subpoenaed by Congress regarding Fast and Furious. Now, these same guns are coming back across our borders.

I’m fully 100% pro-gun. I don’t think the federal government has any authority when it comes to restricting arms of any type from its people. However, we know what this administration’s goal is. Holder has told us it is to brainwash us against guns. Obama has told us he supports the Second Amendment with his lips, but his pen, policies and actions have demonstrated he is a domestic enemy of the Constitution. The only ones Obama supports having guns are America’s enemies, and he has happily provided them with arms (along with the approval of Congress), that will eventually be used against Americans.

Freedom Outpost

Remember the mountain of lies we have heard from the Obama administration, specifically Attorney General Eric Holder, regarding Operation Fast and Furious? The claim was that they were just doing as the Bush administration in Operation Wide Receiver. In both accounts, I personally don’t agree with the method, but at least to the Bush administration’s credit they did actually attempt to track the weapons. The Obama administration made no such effort. In fact, it has been claimed by a high-ranking Mexican drug cartel operative that the Obama administration was knowingly arming the Sinaloa Cartel against rival cartels with these weapons. As a result, the weapons have only been able to be recovered at murder scenes for the most part. Court documents have provided a little more detail on the conspiracy between the cartels and the Columbus, New Mexico conspirators in Operation Fast and Furious.

Top Socialist Economist Says He’s Been Working With Democrats & Obama “For A Long Time”

Gateway Pundit

Have you ever wondered why the Obama Administration’s plans for improving the U.S. economy always seem to fall flat? It just might have something to do with the fact that the Obama Administration has been working with someone who doesn’t like capitalism.

According to an article on France24.com, a well known economist who isn’t fond of capitalism, but promotes Socialism, has been working with the Democrats and the Obama Administration “for a long time”:

In his latest book, French economist Thomas Piketty warns that modern-day capitalism leads to unsustainable levels of inequality. While he is often linked to France’s Socialist Party, his writings have made him unusually popular in the US.

Thomas Piketty’s “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” has only just been translated into English – several weeks ahead of schedule, due to popular demand – and the New York Times’s star columnist Paul Krugman has already described it as “the most important economics book of the year — and maybe of the decade”.

The French economist’s current US book tour is turning into something of a red carpet event. So far this week, he has met the White House’s Council of Economic Advisors as well as Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew.

“The Democratic Party, especially the Obama administration, has been in contact with us and using our findings for a long time,” Piketty told AFP in Washington.

Well, we all knew Obama was a socialist since he was elected.
Remember Joe the Plumber?

Now we know he’s been getting advice from international socialists.
What a shock.

Obama deliberately emboldening America’s enemies

Fox News

All Americans should be aware of some very disturbing events that speak to the state of terrorism, the strength of al Qaeda and our nation’s security. In light of the danger unfolding around us, we also need to question whether or not President Obama’s administration is serious about confronting what is clearly a gathering storm, or whether, in fact, his policies are encouraging those who wish to harm us.

One of the more shocking events illustrating the growing strength of al Qaeda is the release of a video this week showing what CNN reports as “the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years.” It’s what experts think is a recent gathering of the terrorist group’s leadership and more than 100 fighters in Yemen.

Dick Morris: Dems Attempting to ‘Fix Presidential Elections’

Newsmax

Democrats are bypassing the Constitution as they try to replace the Electoral College with the popular vote as the means by which Americans elect presidents, says Dick Morris.

Supporters of the initiative says it levels the playing field by giving all voters the same amount of power, as opposed to grossly empowering voters in swing states, who enjoy the most attention of presidential candidates during the height of election season.

Morris says it’s a bold-faced attempt to neuter the GOP.

“If this thing passes, Republicans will never again win a presidential race and that’s why all the Democrats are lining up behind it,” Morris told John Bachman and J.D. Hayworth on “America’s Forum” on Newsmax TV.

The legislatures of 10 states and the District of Colombia have passed laws to pledge all of their electoral college representatives to select the winner of the national popular vote, and the measure has already passed one house in 10 other states. It takes 270 Electoral College votes to control the presidential selection. If the 10 states that have adopted the initiative in one house pass it into law, 242 electoral votes would be delegated to the winner of the national popular vote.

Morris, who penned a column on the topic for Newsmax earlier this week, said that Democrats are subverting the Constitutional amendment process with their state-to-state tactics. Constitutional amendments must be ratified in 38 states.

Morris said that if presidents are decided by popular vote, urban areas in traditionally Democratic states would gain new power while the doors to voter fraud would be kicked open.

“First of all, it would [spur] the urban Democratic machines in places like Chicago and D.C. and New York that don’t work too hard at getting out the vote because the states are blue anyway, but now if the popular vote matters, they’ll work like demons in getting out the vote including committing voter fraud,” he said.

“Secondly, right now, if things come down to one state like Florida in the Electoral College, you could look at voter fraud in Florida and probably stop it from ruining the election, but if the fraud could be committed in any precinct in the 50 states and it counts in the popular vote, it’s too large a problem ever to be able to either track or to solve.”

Morris was adamant that this empowerment of urban areas through the popular vote would unfairly benefit Democrats.

“So there’s a reason that of the 20 states that have either adopted this or one House has adopted it, 18 of them are blue states… it’s because this is a conspiracy by the Democratic party to fix presidential elections for the indefinite future,” he said.

Pulitzer-Prize Winning Reporter Sy Hersh: Benghazi Is a HUGE Scandal … But Not For the Reason You Think

Washington’s Blog

Beyond Partisan Politics: What Benghazi Is Really About

Pulitzer-prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh – who broke the stories of the Mai Lai massacre in Vietnam and the Iraq prison torture scandals, which rightfully disgraced the Nixon and Bush administrations’ war-fighting tactics – reported last week:

In January, the Senate Intelligence Committee released a report on the assault by a local militia in September 2012 on the American consulate and a nearby undercover CIA facility in Benghazi, which resulted in the death of the US ambassador, Christopher Stevens, and three others. The report’s criticism of the State Department for not providing adequate security at the consulate, and of the intelligence community for not alerting the US military to the presence of a CIA outpost in the area, received front-page coverage and revived animosities in Washington, with Republicans accusing Obama and Hillary Clinton of a cover-up.

That’s the part you’ve heard about: failure to protect the personnel at the embassy.

But then Hersh breaks the deeper story wide open:

Harry Reid On Bundy Ranch Standoff: “It’s Not Over”…

Weasel Zippers

You don’t think the fact that Harry Reid’s son has ties to a firm that wants the land for a Chinese solar company has something to do with Dingy’s position on this?

RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) — Senate majority leader Harry Reid hasn’t been very vocal about the cattle battle showdown in recent days, but says “it’s not over.”

Reid tells News4′s Samantha Boatman his take on the so-called cattle battle in southern Las Vegas. “Well, it’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over,” Reid said. 

Senator Reid had just wrapped up a speech and question and answer session with students at UNR.

Bundy Ranch: Fed Retreat was Psyop Next Wave Soon

URGENT: New developments in the Bundy Ranch standoff. DHS insider reveals the Federal retreat was complete Psyop to study opposition to crush rebellion in next assault.

Source: Canadian Free Press

All of our lives are going to change in a drastic way, if this is true… From Doug Hagmann

At 1750 hours ET, I was contacted by my source within the Department of Homeland Security regarding the current situation at the Bundy Ranch. To put it bluntly, the people are being hoodwinked into believing that the situation is being resolved. It is not. It is a strategic de-escalation to fool the public. This source stated that the retreat of the BLM agents and the release of the cattle was actually crafted as a potential plan yesterday (Friday, 11 April 2014) based on the following:

1. A military assessment of satellite and drone surveillance imagery of the “patriot resistance. Drones under the control of the U.S. military were in use, taking real-time photographic images of not just the activity at the ranch, but “identifying the protesters, any arms and any supplies they might have or be carrying. “Mission accomplished.”
2. Real-time communication intercepts between patriots on-site and their off-site support;
3. Active monitoring of internet traffic regarding the coverage of events at ranch;
4. The monitoring of real-time video from the scene.

This source stated that a response by the patriot movement was anticipated, although exceeded their expectations. Although this was a real operation, they also ran this as a test case for future government operations once they saw the response. They were also actively managing the media, in some cases threatening to cut off White House access to anyone covering the event.

Despite this, the coverage by the alternative media began to create a public relations problem that was not easily managed. Note the lack of acknowledgment by the White House regarding this event. They are intentionally framing it as a state issue, despite the fact that all federal response has been and continues to be from the White House. There is a reason for this — a reason that has not been identified in any of the public reports to date. I will explain in further detail in a follow-up report on Sunday, after this source attends [redacted] to obtain more specific information about future federal operations. Regardless, according to this source, the government will take back ‘their land’ as they must to fulfill international obligations. It was never about grazing rights or anything other than (1) “securing clear title” to the land, and (2) further demonizing any patriotic resistance. It is my understanding, based on the information from this source, that it is a critical task to create a situation that will also advance their agenda of gun control and confiscation.
