“if they want to build [coal plants], they can, but it will bankrupt them”…Barack Obama

“We tried our plan—and it worked. That’s the difference. That’s the choice in this election. That’s why I’m running for a second term.”…Barack Obama

“The function of the press is very high. It is almost Holy.
It ought to serve as a forum for the people, through which
the people may know freely what is going on. To misstate or
suppress the news is a breach of trust.”
…. Louis D. Brandeis

From John Hammer of the Rhino Times, in Greensboro, NC October 18, 2012.

“Another debate and another pounding of the economic policies of President Barack Hussein Obama by Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

Obama has a difficult task running for reelection with the economy in its current shape. Romney is relentless in pointing out that the economy grew slower this year than last year and grew slower last year than the year before, and that 23 million Americans are unemployed. When Romney says the real unemployment rate is 10.7 percent Obama doesn’t argue. When Romney says that Obama has piled up budget deficits of over $1 trillion year after year, Obama doesn’t argue.

Obama does say that his policies are going to work, but it’s hard to sell the idea that policies that haven’t worked for four years are suddenly going to start working in the fifth year or maybe the sixth year or the seventh year.

Romney talks a lot about Obamacare, but Obama doesn’t. He talks about bringing health care to every American, but he doesn’t dwell on Obamacare because polls show that most Americans are against it. It’s his signature piece but he has all but given up selling it to the American people.

When it comes to the contraception aspect of Obamacare, Obama is extremely misleading. Nobody is talking about not providing contraception services. The question is, who pays. According to Obamacare it has to be a free service. Why? Why is that free? Most medical care is not free even if you have insurance. What’s more, Obamacare will force the Catholic Church and other religious organizations to provide abortion services that they believe are morally wrong.

If Obamacare is not changed by the courts or by Congress, it is likely that Catholic hospitals, clinics, social service providers, universities, schools and other outreach programs will close. Perhaps Obama has been listening to his Catholic Vice President Joe Biden and not the Catholic bishops. But he might want to pay attention because if Catholic hospitals close in the major cities, there is going to be a health care disaster, and the Catholic bishops have made it abundantly clear that they are going to have no part in providing abortions.

Biden was entirely wrong in his answer about the situation with Obamacare and the Catholic Church, but then Biden has been told by at least one bishop that he is not a Catholic in good standing and should not participate in the sacraments.

, , ,

There are only two possibilities I can think of when it comes to the response by President Obama to the planned and well-executed terrorist attack on the American compound in Benghazi, Libya.

One is that when an American ambassador was killed in the line of duty for the first time since 1979, during the Carter administration, President Obama decided that in the midst of a presidential election he could not afford to admit that he had refused to give an American ambassador in one of the most dangerous places on earth adequate protection. So he lied to the American people about what happened and hoped that the truth wouldn’t come out until after Nov. 6.

The other is that the Obama administration is so incompetent that it borders on criminal. For two weeks the Obama administration – through its press secretary, Jay Carney, and the US Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice – claimed that the attack was the result of a spontaneous demonstration over a video some nutcase in California made.

But the night of Sept. 11, when the attack was underway, Obama should have immediately known that an American embassy compound where the American ambassador was in residence was under attack by well-organized and well-armed terrorists. We have one of the most sophisticated communications systems in the world. If the president isn’t informed about a terrorist attack on a US embassy compound immediately, then what is the system used for? To make sure Obama doesn’t miss any basketball scores? When high-level State Department officials are being killed that is an emergency.

The State Department knew. The intelligence community knew. Obama made a big deal about watching the attack on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan live in the White House. It wasn’t exactly true that they were watching it live, but they were watching the video the night that it happened.

The American embassy compound in Benghazi had surveillance cameras. The Rhino Times office also has surveillance cameras. You can watch The Rhino Times surveillance cameras real time from a computer, tablet or smart phone anywhere you can hook up to the internet. I cannot believe that the surveillance cameras at the American compound in Benghazi were not hooked up to some communication device so that they could be watched by people in the State Department and intelligence community.

Even without the surveillance cameras, the US had competent people on the ground who, once they got away from immediate danger, reported to their superiors. In fact, according to the State Department timeline, a call about the attack went out immediately with frequent updates. The State Department knew as soon as the men in the compound knew that they were under attack by an organized force.

Vice President Biden says that he didn’t know, and that is entirely possible. Why would anyone bother to tell the vice president, even if he were a competent, honest, intelligent human being? The vice president isn’t going to be making any decisions. He is completely out of the loop as long as the president is alive. Biden may still believe that the attack was the result of a spontaneous demonstration or he may believe that it took place in the last century where he evidently spends a lot of his time.

But President Obama knew or should have known within minutes exactly what was happening in Benghazi. He should have received the reports from those on the ground and he should have been watching the action on the surveillance cameras. But the reports from those in the compound who escaped only to be attacked at the so-called safe house about a mile away should have been more than enough proof that this was a highly organized, well-planned attack.

So in this next debate Obama needs to explain to the American people what happened. Was there such a tremendous communications breakdown that he didn’t get word from Libya about what happened for two weeks? Did the State Department put the Benghazi terrorist attack report on a sailing ship to send it to the White House? How on earth could a report and surveillance video take two weeks to get to the White House?

Obama needs to explain. If the first day the White House had gotten the story wrong that could be attributed to an honest mistake, but in today’s world to claim that the White House didn’t get information from its embassy for two weeks is simply a lie or evidence of overwhelming incompetence.

Liberals love this, and the moderator for the presidential debate, Candy Crawley, is certainly a card-carrying liberal, which is why she re-asked the incredibly stupid question about making AK-47s illegal in the United States. Romney answered the question correctly by saying that fully automatic weapons are already illegal in the US. They have been since 1934. It is possible to get a license to have one, but it is not easy or cheap.

One of the so-called fact checkers said Romney was wrong when he said that fully automatic weapons were illegal. Technically Romney was wrong. Most people would tell you that it is illegal to carry a concealed weapon without the proper permit, but the fact checkers evidently would tell you that is wrong because you can carry a concealed weapon on your own property without a permit. Technically there was no Vietnam War, but that is simply not how we speak. Technically only a couple of hundred people get to vote for president, but candidates and pundits talk about voters in the presidential race all the time. Nobody says “people who vote for electors committed to one candidate,” we call them voters.

However, what the question was about were “assault weapons,” which is a term invented during the Clinton administration. The AK-47 is not an assault weapon; it is an assault rifle because it is fully automatic and for all practical purposes illegal. The assault weapons ban was not about banning a particular kind of rifle but banning rifles because of the way they looked. Rifles that operate identically could be legal or illegal based on how they looked. One that looked like a hunting rifle would be legal and one that looked like an assault rifle would be illegal.

It was a law that simply made people who want all guns to be illegal happy, but didn’t really do anything. Now many hunters are using what are technically assault weapons for hunting. They are lightweight, accurate and make good hunting rifles. And it is true that they are used to kill people. But knives are also frequently used to kill people and there was no question for the candidates about making knives illegal.

President Harry S. Truman, a Democrat who won the respect of both parties and whom history has smiled upon, had a plaque on his desk that read, “The Buck Stops here!”

President Obama, a Democrat who has not won the respect of Republicans and is losing the respect of many Democrats and whose place in history is unknown, has no such plaque, and up until Tuesday night did not follow the philosophy expressed on the plaque.

We know this because Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was sent out to take the fall for Benghazi. The buck stopped with the secretary of state, not the president. You have to wonder what Truman would say about such cowardice by an American president.

Obama takes full credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden although he was over 7,000 miles away. That was Obama who took Bin Laden out, not the Navy Seals who were onsite risking their lives and doing the shooting. But when an American ambassador gets killed in the line of duty for the first time since 1979, it was not Obama’s fault, but the fault of the secretary of state.

During the second presidential debate on Tuesday night, the story changed again. Evidently having Hillary Rodham Clinton take the fall for the terrorist attack in Benghazi was not working with the American people. So during the Tuesday night debate Wendy Crawley threw Obama a softball so he could take full responsibility for the failure.

The attack was on Sept. 11, and on Oct. 16 the president finally takes full responsibility. It does make you wonder how many months it would have taken for Obama to take full responsibility if it wasn’t an election year.

The more we learn about Obama the more questions arise. According to his own personal history Barry Obama quit being Barry and became Barack when he was at Occidental College in Los Angeles. By the time he went to Columbia University he was going by Barack exclusively, even to the point, according to his sister, of trying to get his family to call him Barack. But Martha Raddatz reportedly invited Barry Obama to her wedding. So if everyone called him Barack and had no reason to even know that he was called Barry as a kid, why was Barry invited to the wedding.

Or did really close friends at Harvard call him Barry? We’ll never know.

, , ,

They call it the Stupid Party for a reason, and unfortunately the reason hasn’t gone away. Four years ago the moderator of the vice presidential debate, Gwen Ifill, had written a book about Obama. If he were elected her book would make money, if he lost then the book would go in the remainder bin. She had a lot of money riding on the outcome of the debate and the election.

But then the Republicans allow that snafu to be topped. Barry Obama went to Martha Raddatz’s wedding and she was invited to the Obamas’ wedding but didn’t attend. However, her husband (now her ex) did. Do the Republicans vet these people at all? Do they have a list of Obama’s immediate family and if the person is not on that list, not named George Obama for instance, then they are eligible?

Then when you think it can’t get any worse they come up with this woman for the second town hall meeting, Candy Crawley, who gave Obama 9 percent more time than Romney and was much harder on Romney than on Obama. She also selected the questions, which were Obama-friendly, and asked her own follow-up questions, which she was not supposed to do according to the agreement signed by both campaigns.

This just in for the next and final debate, Obama’s campaign Communications Director David Axelrod is unexpectedly unavailable to moderate the debate so the Commission on Presidential Debates has asked Michelle Obama if she will step in. The Commission on Presidential Debates has noted that Mrs. Obama is a Harvard Law graduate like president Obama but did not attend Harvard Law School at the same time as President Obama, so they do not think she will have a conflict of interest based on their law school years.

The Republican Party has reportedly agreed to accept Michelle Obama as a fair and impartial moderator but has insisted that her daughters not be allowed to sit with her while she moderates the debate.

Who are these people on the Commission on Presidential Debates? Do they pick moderators from a list submitted by the Obama campaign? It’s like having the Ram’s Club pick the referees for the Duke-Carolina game. The Republicans have four years to get their act together but they had better get some conservative Republicans appointed to the Commission on Presidential Debates.”

  1. Could it be a botched kidnapping? benghazi?.”
    http://Www.commieblaster.com WOW. Ck this C.W.

  2. CW….

    You have a great way of demonstrating the FAIRNESS of the Presidential Debate Selections…

  3. truth now.
    Nothing will surprise me.

  4. seaque.
    You can take the discredit Romney crusade elsewhere.
    Even a fifth grader can discern that the lame stream media has tried their best to discredit him
    while giving the real secretive candidate, Obama, a free ride.

  5. All need to call Congress with the article on http://www.commieblaster.com
    Botched kidnapping,need this info,wonder if conservative talk radio
    Will pick up on this…?..?

  6. Truth now…..The muslim brotherhood visits to to the WH and then the call by the new Egyptian leader, Morsi, to release the blind sheik lends credence to the story you posted.

    My belief was that the ambassador was sent to Benghazzi to clean up the mess Obama made by arming the Libyan rebels in the first place. Our involvement in Libya was never approved by congress, and I think the arms were sent secretly through the Saudi’s (again without consent of congress).
    Now, after the disastrous developments the WH has been in a dither trying to come up with something that the LSM will accept and the idiot electorate will ignore.

    The story you present just adds more questions that are begging to be answered. Either way, the O administration has been caught with their pants down trying to paint a phoney picture for a situation (no matter what the truth is) that has sadly gone horribly and criminally wrong.

    I hope Romney has some good inside sources so he can nail obama in the next debate. He certainly laid the groundwork on Tuesday night…either, Obama, or Biden, or Hillary are lying. They all tell a different story.

    I am quite sure, no matter the truth, political games outweighed national security in this one. Shame on all of them!

  7. Thank you for posting the John Hammer article. It is good to see that it is possible for the truth to appear on a printed page.

  8. hrmfc.
    Thanks & thank God.

  9. From John Hammer’s article posted by CW above:

    “This just in for the next and final debate, Obama’s campaign
    Communications Director David Axelrod is unexpectedly unavailable to

    “The Republican Party has reportedly agreed to accept Michelle Obama as a fair and impartial moderator but has insisted that her daughters not be allowed to sit with her while she moderates the debate.”
    Yikes !!!! Is this some sort of joke? This just can’t be for real, can it?
    How can this be allowed to happen, I mean, Michelle Obama, the wife of one of the candidates, be allowed to moderate this debate? For goodness sakes, she is a wife, regardless of whether or not they both attended Harvard at the same time.

    If this is true, I’ve never heard of such a thing and can’t imagine the Republican party acquiescing to it. (The prior choice of David Axelrod would have been beyond the pale, too.) Is this the only way Obama can survive the final debate? Frankly, I’m blown away, to put it mildly.

  10. CABBYAZ….

    If you are online now…please go to the previous blog story where we were discussingObama’s mental behavior…

    I have traced the story we were looking for…You are right. It was an Ulsterman/whitehouse insider entry.

  11. OldSalt/OldSailor,

    I miss you :(. Please let me know you’re OK when you have a chance to log on again; I trust Bridgett is with you.

  12. I hope Romney’s team is preparing him to hit barky and hit him hard regarding Benghazi on Monday night. The American people need to see what an incompetent, lying dumba*s he is; if they’ve not yet seen that, it needs to be shoved right in their faces.

    Hit him on China, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, and Israel and keep smacking him; as usual, he won’t have any answers and that’s the goal of any verbal smackdown.

    Oh, how I wish Rush or Savage were moderating instead of another Lib moonbat! No matter, though, Romney will win yet again; the karma is indeed shifting :).

  13. Are Obama’s Supporters This Stupid?

  14. In reference to my post of 7:58 PM, this stuff about Michelle ending up as the moderator of next debate has to be a parody. (I never was fast at getting jokes.) It is all just too absurd.

    RM, Thanks, I’ll check out your post on the prior thread re. the WHI story. I’d like to read it again.

  15. Interesting article from Sinclair News at the link below. Some insider info on the real reason Chris Stevens was in Benghazi in the first place. Worth a read.


  16. “not optimal” This disgusting Soetoro gaffe makes Biden seem an amateur. This is one for the history books! May be worth another percent or two to Romney.

  17. Well Mitt just won another one !I never realized Romney could be that funny.

    Obama wasn’t funny or interesting…kinda boring.

    Where was the Moouch tonight?

  18. Romney was a hit! Even C. Matthews was laughing! Obama was okaaay, but Romney nailed it.

  19. It looks like Obama is just going through the motions now. He’s ready to head back to Hawaii to that cushy mansion they’ve set up for him. I wouldn’t put it past Michelle to get into politics herself down the road. But I think Obama is finished. His only aspiration is to hit the links and get back into the down low life.

  20. Research why Michelle lost her law lience

  21. Where should people go when laws have been broken?,certainly Not Hawaii,America and the world scammed???
    remember O saying twice even he was not above the law,while campaigning before he took office

    Pat Caddell: Media Have Become An ‘Enemy Of The American People’

    September 29, 2012

    “In recent remarks to an AIM conference, “ObamaNation: A Day of Truth,” 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.”

    Caddell noted that while First Amendment protections were originally provided to the press so they would protect the liberty and freedom of the public from “organized governmental power,” they had clearly relinquished the role of impartial news providers.

    Nowhere was this more evident than during the tragic death of a U.S. ambassador in Libya that was lied about for nine days, because the press and the administration did not want to admit it was a terrorist attack.

    “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, are under attack. None of that is on the national news. None of it is being pressed in the papers.”

    Caddell added that it is one thing for the news to have a biased view, but “It is another thing to specifically decide that you will not tell the American people information they have a right to know.”



  24. Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Charles Jarvis, 1820: “I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.”

  25. Romney delivered with great timing, the key to comedy. It seemed his material was crafted by writers like those who elevated the game for Bob Hope and Johnny Carson. Brilliant. He slayed it!

  26. CW………

    Since when did MMMMMSSSSS. Soetoro graduate from Harvard? She was said by a lot of prior MSM as well as a lot of CW BLOGGERS to be a PRINCETON grad. I believe that somebody needs to get OUR STORY STRAIGHT. Doesn’t reflect well on the blog in general.Her hateful thesis which allegedly was written during her Princeton years was published on CW as I recall.

  28. OldSailor,
    Did some checking and Michelle graduated from Princeton but later graduated from Harvard Law School with a doctorate in law.

  29. oldsailor.

  30. Rob, yes.

  31. CW – I think the media have missed a big issue from the second debate. Real News at Glenn Beck’s site brought it up recently and it should be a made into an ad for Romney. The issue is the same as Obama killing the GM bond holders by ignoring the law of contracts. Obama tells Oil companies to use their leases or lose them. The Government can’t do that without compensating these companies. They had binding contracts with the government and can’t just be set aside willy-nelly by Obama.

    …OBAMA: Here’s what happened. You had a whole bunch of oil companies who had leases on public lands that they weren’t using. So what we said was you can’t just sit on this for 10, 20, 30 years, decide when you want to drill, when you want to produce, when it’s most profitable for you. These are public lands. So if you want to drill on public lands, you use it or you lose it.
    ROMNEY: OK, (inaudible) —
    OBAMA: And so what we did was take away those leases. And we are now reletting them so that we can actually make a profit.
    ROMNEY: And production on private — on government land –…
