Benghazi Continues: Hillary de Medici

May 9th, 2013 - 12:40 am

Of course, a number of media will do their best to spin this email. People will come out to say they reconsidered the conclusion afterwards, it was the fog of war, etc.

But they will be lying and they will know it. They will allow themselves to lie, however, because it is for them to protect what they consider to be greater goods — at that time the reelection of Barack Obama and, later, the ascendancy of Hillary.

It’s all “the ends justify the (lying) means”  or, in Islamic terms, it’s taqiyya. (The odd similarity of the communist “the ends justify the means” and the Islamic concept of taqiyya – lying to the Infidel for the benefit of Islam is permissible — would be an interesting comparison study.)

So we are back in a Watergate-type situation and, as with those times, we are going to have to work our way up the food chain. Testimony at the hearing attested to the obvious — that the Accountability Review Board report (already itself under investigation) only held mid-level people responsible. How convenient and how predictable.

Fortunately, several Haldeman and Ehrlichman stand-ins suggest themselves, among them Jones and the recipients of her email.

Most prominent among those names is attorney Cheryl Mills, sometimes called Hillary’s “fixer.” People, we were told, pick up the phone when she calls.

Her name popped up several times during the hearings. She apparently turned cold on poor Gregory Hicks when he wandered off the reservation. Hicks was also warned that he and others were not to give one-on-one interviews to Jason Chaffetz when the Utah congressman went to Libya to investigate. (Hicks has apparently been demoted and has no real job. So much for the vaunted support for “whistle blowers.”)

Welcome to the Soviet Union, Mr. and Mrs. America.

So allow me to turn back to my second paragraph about those who would be cynical about what is transpiring. Sorry, but it’s too late for that. Playing Malvolio is a luxury we can no longer afford.

This is a time that private citizens can do a lot. They can inform themselves about the facts and issues of Benghazi as they come up and explain them to friends, family, and co-workers.  You might even change a mind or two. Teachable moments this dramatic come along extremely rarely.  The last one I can think of was September 11, 2001.  That changed the lives of a lot of us, some even permanently.

Maybe it was the camera angle, maybe it was the tiny hands waving wildly in the air, maybe it was the same shade of green on Hillary's dress and the Wicked Witch of Oz's skin, but i found the ''Curse you --I'm Melting'' and the ''what difference does it make?" scenes oddly similar.

LETTERMAN: Now, I don’t understand, um, the ambassador to Libya killed in an attack on the consulate in Benghazi. Is this an act of war? Are we at war now? What happens here?
OBAMA: Here's what happened. ... You had a video that was released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character who -- who made an extremely offensive video directed at -- at Mohammed and Islam --
LETTERMAN: Making fun of the Prophet Mohammed.
OBAMA: Making fun of the Prophet Mohammed. And so, this caused great offense in much of the Muslim world. But what also happened, extremists and terrorists used this as an excuse to attack a variety of our embassies, including the one, the consulate in Libya.

He was LYING. And he KNEW it.

WAS HILLARY LYING THROUGH HER TEETH OR LYING THROUGH HER ASS
DURING HER TESTIMONY?

What difference does it make? In the same way Hillary set up a false dichotomy before Congress: "Was it a protest or guys out for a walk?"

However, Hillary et al were trying to cover-up that during a planned terrorist attack, the WH did not send help to try and save Americans. This is pure evil.

It is going to interesting to see who has the accident of falling out of window in a high rise. Getting soused and drowning in a pool or getting ran over by a runaway car. This is a Clinton situation here. Maybe someone will shoot themselves in Marcy Park and forget to leave the car keys at the scene again.
As this plays out it could get interesting. This time Hillary cannot run off on vacation while someone else does the dirty deeds... ala Vince Foster....

I am struck by the ease with which many of our elected representatives look the American people directly in the eye and lie to us. Lying has become so commonplace that it seems MOST of what we are told is fabricated. Those in government who do not lie are clearly in the minority. In this case, four honorable, heroic Americans have died because of lies apparently by hillary clinton, barack obama and a lot of other people. We must know the truth and hold the liars accountable.

What are the odds of Hillary having an accident on the way to the grocery store?

Interesting that Elizabeth Jones is still acting assistant sec of state for near eastern affairs, not confirmed yet. She was I believe recently brought out of retirement to take this position, while her predecessor, Jeffrey Feltman, went on to some obscure post or other at the UN. Hmmm. Wonder what the story is behind that. Also wondering if it's true that Hicks was demoted to desk officer? Would like to know what his job title/duties are--desk officer would be a significant demotion from deputy chief of mission.
