Benghazi: The cover-up is unraveling

Administration and Mainstream Media caught dissembling again  Obama Benghazi Blame Me

by George Landrith

At the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, the president revealed a sad truth – the mainstream media actively works to advance his political career. He quipped that his campaign manager “David Axelrod now works for MSNBC, which is a nice change of pace since MSNBC used to work for David Axelrod.”

In deed, the mainstream media has been diligently advancing Obama’s political career since at least 2008. And the media’s active participation in the Benghazi cover-up is proof positive of the media’s deep and profound dishonesty. [Read more...]

“Mainstream” media are not biased. They are propagandists.

by George Landrith Media Propaganda

For years, media bias has been hotly debated. Let me settle this here and now. The mainstream media is not biased. Bias implies some level of subtly in the prejudice. There is nothing subtle about the media’s blatant partiality which actually reaches the level of dishonest propaganda.

There is an unmistakeable trend in play – some evil and/or demented person kills and injures a large number of innocent people and the extreme Left and the “mainstream” media (but I repeat myself) blame conservatives for the evil-doer’s actions. This is an almost reflexive reaction for the media and the Left. [Read more...]

The Media’s Benghazi Scandal

by Peter Wehner

Over my career, I’ve tended to resist press bashing. Part of the reason for that may be that there are plenty of journalists whose work I respect and whom I’ve come to admire. But I must say that the way the press as an institution covered the 2012 presidential election was in many respects depressing—and in some respects its biases have rarely been more fully on display.

There are a dozen examples I could cite, but let me simply focus on one: The September 11 attack on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi. We witnessed a massive failure at three different stages. [Read more...]

Lingering questions about Benghazi

The Obama administration needs to level with the country about why it made its decisions.

by David Ignatius

October 30, 2012

The attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi has become a political football in the presidential campaign, with all the grandstanding and misinformation that entails. But Fox News has raised questions about the attack that deserve a clearer answer from the Obama administration.

Fox’s Jennifer Griffin reported Friday that CIA officers in Benghazi had been told to “stand down” when they wanted to deploy from their base at the annex to repel the attack on the consulate, about a mile away. Fox also reported that the officers requested military support when the annex came under fire that night but that their request had been denied. [Read more...]

Obama: “If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.”

Obama Stewart OptimalYou got that right, Mr. President, you might even say it is damn inconvenient.

by George Landrith

President Barack Obama, during an interview on the Comedy Central’s Daily Show with Jon Stewart responded to a question about his inaccurate and even misleading communications after the Benghazi attack, by saying: “If four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.” Not optimal? Really? Let’s review a few other things that are “not optimal.” [Read more...]

Debate analysis from around the web

Unequal Time: 

If you want more time to get your message out in debates, it’s good to be a Democrat. According to the CNN debate clock, President Obama spoke at greater length than Mitt Romney during both debates, as did Vice President Biden during his debate with Paul Ryan. In the first debate, Obama spoke for 3 minutes, 14 seconds more than Romney — which means he got 8 percent more talking time than Romney. In last night’s debate, Obama spoke for 4 minutes and 18 seconds longer than Romney, giving him 11 percent more talking time. During the vice presidential debate, the gap wasn’t as wide: Biden spoke for 1 minute, 22 seconds more than Ryan. Still, that gave Biden 3 percent more speaking time than Ryan. [Read more...]

The State Dept’s official account of what happened in Benghazi

The State Department Obama Lying to Americahas released a transcript of a briefing that two high-ranking State Department officials gave to a number of reporters via conference call on Tuesday, October 9, 2012 — the night before the Congressional hearings on the Benghazi cover-up.

While it is impossible to know exactly what motivated the conference call, it may be part of the deepening and escalating conflict between President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. From day one, Obama and Biden have tried to avoid political responsibility for the attack on the American consulate that resulted in the death of four American diplomats. Obama lied from the first moment he opened his mouth about the attack. Initially, Clinton was cooperative in the lies. [Read more...]

Moderator of VP debate an Obama friend

ABC News scrambles to downplay Obama’s attendance at VP debate moderator’s weddingVP Debate - Moderator

by Josh Peterson

President Barack Obama was a guest at the 1991 wedding of ABC senior foreign correspondent and vice presidential debate moderator Martha Raddatz, The Daily Caller has learned. Obama and groom Julius Genachowski, whom Obama would later tap to head the Federal Communications Commission, were Harvard Law School classmates at the time and members of the Harvard Law Review.

The ‘Obamaphone’ electorate

Ringing the Obamaphoneobama-phone

Nine days after Mother Jones magazine posted a video showing Mitt Romney making his now famous “47 percent” remarks, an Obama voter in Ohio validated the broad point Romney had tried to make: A lot of people are going to vote for Obama purely for the free stuff.

The idea that some people receive more from the state than they give to it and therefore vote to keep the gravy train running is neither new nor controversial — nor incorrect. For evidence, see the “Obamaphone” video.  [Read more...]

Pat Caddell: Media Have Become an “Enemy of the American people”

Former Democratic pollster and analyst Pat Caddell said, “I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy.”

“We’ve had nine days of lies over what happened because they can’t dare say it’s a terrorist attack, and the press won’t push this,” said Caddell. “Yesterday there was not a single piece in The New York Times over the question of Libya. Twenty American embassies, yesterday, were under attack. None of that is on the national news. None of it is being pressed in the papers.” [Read more...]

Leno: Obama wasted four years to do something about the economy

Real reporters won’t tell the truth. But apparently Jay Leno will.

In his opening monologue, Leno said that every day Americans waste a lot of time and pointed out that we wasted four years waiting on President Barack Obama to do something about the economy.

Leno said, “I love how the politicians capitalize on this kind of thing. Like the minute the replacement refs were fired, President Obama said, ‘See, sometimes losing jobs can be a good thing. It’s a good thing.’”  (See the video below.)  [Read more...]

A serious president? No, an absentee president

by George Landrith

We already knew that the economy is sluggish and in trouble. But now we learn that the economy is far weaker than previously understood. But that is not the only unflattering truth that has come to light. Our foreign policy and national security are also in far worse shape than we understood even a few weeks ago.

It isn’t just that job growth isn’t even keeping up with population growth. It isn’t just that the Federal Reserve has effectively thrown in the towel and admitted that there is no recovery. [Read more...]

Juiced: Pro-Obama Polls Rely on Record Dem Turnout

by John Nolte

If you’re going to believe the polls released from CBS/New York Times this morning — you know, the polls the media’s currently using to beat Romney senseless and to depress Republican enthusiasm, you have to believe that the turnout advantage for Democrats over Republicans will blow away every previous record and common sense. [Read more...]

Will the media cover this for a week?

President Barak Obama Media Bias - Obamatook some questions for the first time in a very long time and it didn’t go very well.

At a forum sponsored by Univision, a Hispanic Television Channel, Obama said, “The most important lesson I’ve learned is that you can’t change Washington from the inside. You can only change it from the outside.”

That isn’t what he was saying in 2008! When he was running the first time, he ran as an “outsider” even though he was a sitting U.S. Senator. He promised over and over that once elected he would change Washington. [Read more...]

Media upset that turmoil in Middle East is distracting from the story they want to tell

The mainstream media is treating the ongoing Middle East turmoil as an unfortunate distraction from the “real story” that they would like to shove down the public’s throat – that Mitt Romney is incompetent. The media’s tortured narrative ignores the facts and relies upon double standards so offensive that even the truly dull-witted and see the fallacy.

So, Mr. President, is Egypt an Ally or Not?

Last night Barack Obama Media Lap Dogwas asked about whether Egypt was still an ally of America. His response was pretty clear: “I don’t think we would consider [Egypt] an ally, but we don’t consider them an enemy.”

But today, the Obama Administration backed away from that statement and provided an alternative answer or a “clarification.”

Wasn’t Obama just boasting that he is very careful and practiced in matters of foreign policy? Wasn’t it Obama who said Romney “seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later”?

Skipping more than half of his security briefings and leading from behind

by George Landrith

On the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, two American embassies (or consulates) were attacked and breached – one in Libya and one in Egypt. Four American diplomats were assassinated by these coordinated attacks. We now know that security was almost non-existent in Libya and that at least some of the locally hired security detail actually helped the attackers locate and target our diplomats. And clearly the security at our Embassy in Cairo was insufficient as a mob breached the embassy’s walls and stormed the embassy, removing, destroying and burning the American flag and replacing it with al Qaeda’s flag and putting the Americans in the embassy at risk. And just today, in Yemen, hundreds of “protestors” stormed the American embassy chanting “death to America” and tore down the flag, burned it, and put American diplomats at risk. The extremists are now emboldened. [Read more...]

The Obama press is shameless

Yesterday, the media stepped in it again and showed how deeply dishonest and deceitful they are. An open microphone at the Romney press conference caught reporters strategizing how to cast Mitt Romney has the bad guy because he had dared to be critical of the Obama Administration’s weak initial response to the violence in Cairo and the assassination in Libya.

Reporters were picked up by the mic planning to repeatedly ask Romney if he regretted his statement, if it was the wrong tone, and if he stood by his statement. The reporters were recorded saying, “I’m just trying to make sure that we’re just talking about, no matter who[Romney] calls on, we’re covered on the one question … do you regret your statement?” The interview went precisely as the reporters conspired with a barrage of the same question over and over — all aimed at making Romney the focus and avoiding any review of Obama’s lead from behind approach.  [Read more...]

Obama: No Time for Israel, but Time for Letterman

With the shocking assassination of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and 3 other diplomats and the violent attack on the U.S. Embassy in Egypt, the White House  has time to fly to Nevada for fundraisers and campaign activities, but not time to meet with our best ally in the Middle East, Israel.

The White House declined Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request to meet with U.S. President Barack Obama during a UN conference in New York at the end of September.  [Read more...]

Are Democrats Really the “Pro-Science” Party?

by Alex Berezow and Hank Campbell

A narrative has developed over the past several years that the Republican Party is anti-science. Recently, thanks to the ignorant remarks about rape made by Rep. Todd Akin, the Democrats have seized the opportunity to remind us that they are the true champions of science in America. But is it really true?

No. As we thoroughly detail in our new book, “Science Left Behind,” Democrats are willing to throw science under the bus for any number of pet ideological causes – including anything from genetic modification to vaccines. [Read more...]
