The mainstream media has FAILED the American people. It should not matter to anyone whether this is a Republican or Democrat President and Administration. It is not a party issue. American lives were lost needlessly and callously. From the Situation Room in the White House, they were watching this on a live stream feed from drones in the area. Obama and the administration chose to OUTRIGHT lie to us in hopes that this would go away and not become an issue in the election.
If we were living in times when common sense meant something, this would be front page news on every single media. But, we are not. The press has opted to protect Obama no matter the cost to the American people. If Obama is allowed to get away with this treason - and it is treason, he is aiding and abetting the enemy, then we are living under the illusion that we live in a free nation. When free press is gone, there is no freedom. And, my personal belief is that the free press has chosen to protect Obama, even at the expense of American lives.
If you want to know the truth, it is up to us to demand the truth. Since the mainstream media is not pressuring Obama for the truth, the truth will remain hidden until or unless we make enough noise to force the truth to be revealed. Please, join me in demanding the truth:
The U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and the two Navy Seals in Benghazi TRUSTED Obama. They were wrong, they are dead.
There’s been a special line set up for this: PLEASE CALL AND TELL THEM YOU WANT A PUBLIC HEARING on BENGHAZI before the elections!!! OGR (Office of Govt. Reform) Committee: (202) 225-5074.
The Republican national committee is asking us to call the oversight committee: PLEASE CALL and RE-POST THIS TO YOUR WALL and other social media. Distribute to all of your contacts.

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can't pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies.
And the cost of our debt is one of the fastest growing expenses in the Federal budget. This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy, robbing our cities and States of critical investments in infrastructure like bridges, ports, and levees; robbing our families and our children of critical investments in education and health care reform; robbing our seniors of the retirement and health security they have counted on.
Every dollar we pay in interest is a dollar that is not going to investment in America's priorities. Instead, interest payments are a significant tax on all Americans--a debt tax that Washington doesn't want to talk about. If Washington were serious about honest tax relief in this country, we would see an effort to reduce our national debt by returning to responsible fiscal policies.
Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that "the buck stops here.'' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.
I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America's debt limit.
Barack Hussein Obama, Jr.
Transcript from: http://www.votesmart.org/speech_detail.php?sc_id=64094
Oh... yeah... this is from March 16, 2006. Now that Obama is President, it is not, I repeat, NOT a failure of leadership, it is not robbing people of investments and their future. Obama promised Change and change we got - he changed that. All on his own. He is providing jobs, saving not just the US but the entire global economy, and the people who oppose raising the debt limit in 2013... well, they are just evil, uncooperative terrorists and kidnappers.
The best expose of our leader and state of affairs yet.
When The Bleeding Heart Becomes The Iron Fist
JulTemar Boggs, you did GOOD!
With all the bad press these days, I thought it would be nice to give a little publicity to a heroic young teen by the name of Temar Boggs.
At 9:45 pm last night Zimmerman Defense Counsel Don West blew up at trial Judge Nelson, when she appeared to support the Prosecution's efforts to block exculpatory evidence from the jury.
Trayvon Martin had a cellphone on him the night he attacked George Zimmerman, and was shot and killed by Zimmerman as he pummeled the hispanic man in what one witness described as a mixed martial arts "ground and pound" style.
That phone was taken into evidence and has been in the possession of first the Sanford Police Department, and then the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. During Discovery the State delivered to the Defense, a report of what was found on that phone. At the beginning of the trial the Prosecution said they had not withheld any evidence, it was delivered in full to the Defense.
That was not true. The shared report did NOT reveal the contents of a "hidden" app on the phone. "Hidden" means the app was not listed, ie, there was no icon or name listed - that app was not visible to anyone casually using the phone. It was specially downloaded and installed by the user and the contents protected with an additional, encrypted password beyond what was needed to access the normal functions of the mobile phone.
Yesterday, Richard Conner, an impeccably resumed forensic legal expert, testified that that "hidden" app contained thousands of text messages and over 600 pictures, some of which had been "soft" deleted. Soft deleted means they were no longer listed as available, but were still retained and could be retrieved as data stored in the phone.
What was in that hidden app? Text conversations where Martin is revealed to be a street fighter who bragged about using MMA tactics and bloodying his opponent's nose, a thief, and a user and dealer of drugs, who had been suspended from school for his activities and kicked out of his home by his mother and sent to live with his father. Further, he had recently attempted to buy and sell guns through someone identified as "Fruit".
The Defense wanted some of these text messages admitted as evidence, as they would support Zimmerman's allegations that Martin "appeared to be on drugs", and had a history of aggressive behavior and fighting that supported the description of Martin's actions that night as described by witnesses.
When the judge appeared to be leaning towards refusing to admit this evidence, Don West lost his normally cool demeanor and accused the Prosecution of withholding evidence, lying to the court, and accused the judge of creating a situation (not allowing the Defense enough time to depose witnesses and examine evidence when the Prosecution blindsides them with new data at the 11th hour) that is preventing the Defense counsel from presenting an adequate defense. (There is case law that says if the judge shackles the defense in this way the case can be overturned.)
Okay, if you have gotten this far... sundance from the Conservative Treehouse has associated "Fruit" with Trayvon Martin's father, Tracy Martin. This means, Trayvon's father had discussions with his son, who had been suspended from school for drugs and had been found with stolen jewelry and burglary tools, about obtaining a gun.
sundance goes on, in the comments section, to put together something that I considered when Conner was testifying, and that is, the items that were deleted were not deleted by Martin, but had been deleted after his death by someone attempting to "clean up" the data that would eventually find it's way to the Defense.
"If you listen closely to the Richard Conner testimony you realize what he has found. The phone deletions were made around all of the attributes which would have affected the considerations in this case about character and reputation. Except for the porn pictures. The reason those were not found was because of how they were hidden in the phone. The person deleting would not have seen them as images and would have needed an application to understand the “bit” file which was password protected also.
Conner is outlining a very specific educated thesis that the phone was scrubbed of damning evidence after death. Meaning somehow a person intentionally removed, “deleted”, the data.
Obviously, Mantai objects when Conner is going there with his explanations – but the implication is crystal clear. If the state of Florida retained custody of that phone – then someone from FDLE, or in association with the chain of evidence, deleted the data."
So this puts an entirely new twist on this trial. We have seen the Judge favoring the Prosecution to a degree experienced trial lawyers claim are "unreal". We have seen her deny the Defense time to depose witnesses and examine evidence, forcing the attorneys for the defense to work all night long and then go back to court in the morning to present their case. We have seen the Prosecution go to ridiculous lengths to eliminate evidence (for example, claiming the word "fight" may be code for something else) and the judge uphold their position.
The job of the prosecution is to seek justice, not to railroad an innocent man. The job of the judge is to make sure the trial is fair, not to quash the defense and favor the prosecution.
Right now, it looks very much like there has been collusion, and destruction of exculpatory evidence by the State.

At first I chuckled... that's a reach. But then I remembered the flurry of dozens of bills put forth in DC to change the Presidential eligibility requirements before Obama announced his candidacy, and... well, they would be killing two birds with one stone...
Description: Representative Trey Gowdy gives a passionate opening statement at the House Oversight Committee Hearing on excessive conference spending by the IRS. He states that the institution has a character problem that isn't going to be "solved with another webinar" and that it may be time to "start over."

Read the FULL article by Mark Steyn as it is being quoted all over the internet. Here's a taste. I hope it gives you the chills.
^ That's the headline on Drudge.
NK says it is now in a state of war with SK.
The little shit sure likes to stir up trouble. For all of our nukes and fly-bys the truth is a ground war with NK will be a nasty situation for our side.

Senator Dianne Feinstein,
I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.
I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.
I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.
We, the people, deserve better than you.
Cpl, United States Marine Corps
