CNN and The Obama Administration – Weapons of Misdirection

In the history books of wool-over-sheeple-eye-removal this might, just might, go down as one of the most obvious and over-the-top Machiavellian media manuevers ever.

Watching it unfold on live TV it did not seem right. It was awkwardly and comfortably scripted, and too smooth in execution. But watching it on replay the agenda filled manipulation was obvious. It appears Candy Crowley and CNN together with the Obama Administration scripted the Libyan injection into the Presidential Debate.

I’m not just talking about Candy Crowley interjecting on behalf of President Obama, and interrupting Mitt Romney, I mean the whole segment seemed like it was a set up.

So we did a little research:

Candy Crowley told Erin Burnett on CNN’s show Out Front, Monday Night 10/15, that she had collected the questions from the invited and vetted debate audience at Hofstra University and was reviewing them. This was Monday on the 7pm broadcast of Erin Burnett. The Debate was Tuesday.

When the question on Libya was asked by audience member Kerry Ladka, he prefaced the question by saying:

….this question actually comes from my, err, um, a brain trust of my friends at Global Telecom Supply in Mineola, yesterday we were sitting around talking about Libya…

If Candy Crowley already had the audience questions assembled the day before, how could Kerry Ladka and his brain trust friends have been writing one?

Secondly, look at the origin and subject switch from Candy Crowley. When she said “we are changing topics to a question from Kerry… from Kerry Ladka“, Obama already knew what to look for and where he was seated. There are numerous “TELLS” Watch the video – it is at 1:06:35 Watch.

President Obama moved (physically walked) directly toward Kerry Ladka, and said “Hi Kerry“,… (but oddly Kerry had not moved, nor identified himself) …. then, rut roh,…. after an internal psyche trigger kicked in, President Obama does the ((‘oops’)) *looks around* as if to say where am I going… then asks “what’s your name“?

Thirdly, within the carefully worded question itself is a very nuanced descriptive delivered by Ladka:

…”and we were reading, and we became aware of reports that the State Department refused extra security for our embassy in Benghazi Libya prior to the attacks that killed four Americans.

Who was it that denied enhanced security, and why?

The term “enhanced security” is the term used by the White House spokespeople and by the State Department spokesperson(s). It is just plain awkward and oddly not in a normal context for a general question from an unattached observer. Not to mention it perfectly “Tee’s Up” the only construct, and context, that Obama could defend and expand upon.

Fourth. Michelle Obama appears to know the moment is at hand and fails to contain her excitment upon execution. There is a FOX News camera angle that actually shows her response during a cutaway portion. No-one realized she was on tape…. And you’re not going to believe what she was doing…. just watch:

Yes, that’s right. The LOUD clapping you can hear in the audience is from none other than Michelle Obama herself who is responding to the put down of Governor Romney’s question by Candy Crowley. She knew all along the risk to Obama that Libya presents, and she appears giddy upon execution of the misdirection.

Fifth Point - Kerry Ladka works for Global Telecom Supply. More specifically he works for Isaac Elyassoff who is the current Vice-President at Global Telecom Supply. Guess where Elyassoff is an alumnus of ? Yep, Hofstra University, the site of the debate. It appears Elyassoff is in his mid twenties having graduated from Hofstra with a degree in Marketing and Business 2002-2006. Obamabot? Ideology? Check out his twittery friends .

Why would random undecided voter, Mr. Kerry Ladka, of Long Island NY, be calling media outlets, media pundits, and requesting to be on their shows?

Just a randomly selected “undecided voter”/”audience member” chosen by CNN?

Happenstance?

Seriously?   Give me a break…..   Consider:

Does the prior name David Plouffe or the prior campaign strategy of David Plouffe ring a bell?… anyone?….   anyone?…..   Any.One?

What is that they say about “Apples and Trees”?

OCCUPY WALL STREET MOVEMENT GAINS MOMENTUM BY CHRIS LADKA October 18, 2011

Now regarding the entire aspect of Crowley Bias:

As noted by commentator “garyws” Look at the video from 1:13:50 to 1:15:20. This is obvious evidence of collusion between Obama and the moderator, Candy Crowley. When Romney makes the point that Obama had just said in the debate that he had called this an “act of terror’ in the Rose Garden the day after the attack, Obama smugly encourages Romney: “Please proceed, Governor”.

Then when Romney says, “I want to make sure that we’ve got that on the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror” , Obama then prompts the moderator (Candy Crowley), “Get the transcript”, and right after Crowley stuttered, “He did in fact”, Obama says confidently “Can you say that a little louder Candy?” And each time that Obama commented, there was a spattering of applause from Obama supporters in the audience.

Look at the Crowley interruption segment closely:

It was obvious to the intellectually honest viewer that an agenda, what appears to be a “scripted agenda”, was being followed. Here is another angle. Focus on the exchange between President Obama and the simultaneous verbage of Candy Crowley:

The BACKSTORY is IMPORTANT

Now, before people begin spouting off accusations about a wild conspiracy theory. Let me remind you of what we have already recently shown, in fact, about CNN specifically and intentionally removing reports from U.S. CNN audiences in order to help the White House.

First CNN reports a total falsehood: that a “senior official” said a full marine detachment could not have repelled the Benghazi Attack.

Second.  Watch the first 3 minutes of this video about CNN and the Cairo protest:

Why would CNN refuse to air the Nick Robertson report with Muhammed Al Zawahiri (brother of Ayman Al Zawahiri) that clearly shows the Egyptian uprising was 100% in response to his call for protests for release of the Blind sheik on 9-11.?

This Nick Robertson report was filmed the morning of the Cairo Embassy protest itself.   It was filmed on 9/11 outside the U.S. Embassy.

Why would the “most trusted name in news“, hide the report showing the obvious truth, and instead allow the false narrative to be sold, by them, to the American electorate?

Lastly, don’t take my word for it.   Read and listen to a former CNN journalist Amber Lyon.

undefinedAmber Lyon is an award-winning journalist who worked for CNN.

She says she was ordered to report fake stories, delete unfriendly stories adverse to the Obama administration (like the Nick Robertson report), and construct stories in specific manners while working for the left-wing network.

She used to work for CNN and she supports what we are outlining regarding the intentional manipulation of the Presidential Debate by CNN.

We previously outlined her story, and the hiding of the Nick Robertson report here.

Given the history of documented, cited and irrefutable manipulation by CNN, is it a stretch to say that given all the citations above, Mr. Ladka was a specifically planted seed waiting to be used at a specifically planned juncture; with the full knowledge of the Obama campaign, and facilitated by a willing media outlet?

Obama:  “get the transcript”…..

Obama:  “can you say that a little louder Crowley”……

Was Crowley correct? Did President Obama actually call it an act of terror? Here’s the  relevant portion of the transcript  (emphasis added):

Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks.  We mourned with the families who were lost on that day.  I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed.  And then last night, we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.

As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it.  Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.

No acts of terror will ever shake the  resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the  values that we stand for.

Today we mourn for more Americans who represent the very  best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see  that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be  done.

But we also know that the lives these Americans led stand  in stark contrast to those of their attackers. These four Americans stood up for  freedom and human dignity. They should give every American great pride in the  country that they served, and the hope that our flag represents to people around  the globe who also yearn to live in freedom and with dignity.

We grieve with their families, but let us carry on their  memory and let us continue their work in seeking a stronger America and a better  world for all of our children.

Thank you. May God bless the memory of those we lost, and  may God bless the United States of America.  (link)

As you can see, Obama said, “No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of  this nation.”

However, he didn’t specifically call this incident an act of terror, and his  administration went on for days if not weeks claiming it was a protest over an anti-Muslim movie trailer.  Obama was certainly not calling the Benghazi attack an act of “terrorism“, if he wanted to tell the American people it was terrorists then he would not have sent his cabinet level UN ambassador, Susan Rice, into the media four days later to say it was a protest about a video that turned violent.

  2. boricuafudd says:

    I don’t think they calculated this properly, because if the President said it was a Terror attack on day 2, then why the hell did he allow all of people of his administration to claim otherwise, is he that powerless over his people? If so, then he does not need to be the President anymore, if anyone can run off-shoot and do whatever the hell they want in his name.

    • canadacan says:

      This is an excellent piece of Journalism I wish Fox News and the Wall Street Journal What pick it up I hope Mark Levin and rush limbaugh mention this on their shows. When the president gets cocky like that It means he’s being prompted CNN version of a .teleprompter Berlin in the 19 thirty’s never had it so good

      • howie says:

        I have thought about this so called town hall. The closest thing I come up with is that the audience resembled the White House Press Corpse. I would love to run the questions through the college plagiarism check computer program. The questions were plaiarized from the Obama Media spin machine.

    • Look again at the transcript of the speech. He was speaking of 9/11/01 attack when he said it, then went on to discuss the 9/11/2012 attack. He wasn’t using it for the new attack at all.

  3. howie says:

    This was an AMBUSH of Romney by CNN and Obama. Clearly. I am surprised he got out of there with his scalp intact. I have never seen it so obvious. Ambush in Flatbush. Presented as an evenhanded debate. They lie.

      It was enough of a nudge for the degenerates to focus back on our degenerate pres and forget about the first debate. If people are LOOKING for excuses, it’s always a low hanging fruit.

      Howie, Hofsta is not in Flatbush. Flatbush is in Brooklyn, New York, a community in which Obama has never visited. Hofstra is in Long Island, New York to the west.

    • Mark Edwards says:

      Yet………… the public through either intuition or just a very strong BS detector isn’t being swayed by it at all…. the like Mitt even more. He’s up 7 now in Gallop,… and Gallop ALWAYS over samples democrats.. at least till now..

      Now.. folks are cuing up to the fact, Obama’s a prize manipulator and a liar..

      Mitt.. God be with you… the people are coming along..and you really did well.

  4. ctdar says:

    In the Rose Garden speech Obama was specifically referring to September 11, 2001 when he said “no acts of terror”

  6. howie says:

    Cool. Sununu was just on CNN and called them “The Groupie Channel” to their face.

  7. Daemae says:

    Townhall formats are for petulent, incompentents like Obama. The swagger and the look on his face upon the intro of the candidates told me the Chicago fix was in. Dumbest question of the night came from a woman named Katz who must have just come out of a coma scribbled down a question and attended the townhall. If after four pathetic years of Obama she is undecided and wants to know the difference between Romney and Bush, she is either a plant or has the I.Q. of a plant. As for moderator Crowley, I would trust her only as far as I could throw her and looking at her girth, well, you get the picture.

  8. justice4z says:

    This is absolutely too much. Get the transcript !!! Why would the moderator just happen to have that particular transcript ? How would Obama know that she had the transcript to tell her to get it ? How could she produce one particular transcript and read and digest it so quickly if she was loaded down with multiple important transcripts? But then again why would a moderator have a collection of transcripts? She is not a fact checker. It is just not her job. This stinks of collusion

    • howie says:

      Ambush in Flatbush.

    • They need to HAMMER this and make sure that EVERYONE knows it was a setup. We can expect nothing less from Monday’s debate either. Mitt should have stopped the debate and refused to proceed on until his point was made. You don’t score points by making ‘nice’ with these bastard cheerleaders in the media.

    • justice4z says:

      I have been thinking that perhaps I have misinterpreted the “Get the transcript” or “Check the transcript” comment. Perhaps it was not in regard to the President’s Rose Garden comments but the transcript of the debate. Of course Crowley was without justification for interjecting her mistaken support of the President into the debate and did a terrible job

      • pbunyan says:

        No, you were definitely right. There is no other logical reason why Crowley would have the transcript in her hand at that point. It was set up and rehearsed. They carefully planned it out. Obama probably spent days rehearsing his feigned righteous indignation answer to the initial question that I’d bet the farm was written by the Obama campaign. Then Romney points out the weeks of lying by Obama and the rest of his regime. Then Obama tells the obviouos lie. Then Romeny calls him on it. Then Crowley, transcript in hand, calls Romney the liar. Game, set, match. And Romney played right into thieir hands. Unfortunately for the fellow travelers, Obama’s quite a dimwit sans teleprompter, so as he watched this plan that his handelers crafted coming to fruition so perfectly on live television, he gets excited and bluts out “get the transcript”, then Corwley ends up with the deer in the headlights look on her face and totally srews up her rehearsed answer to the point were she ends up practically mumbling gibberish.

        I would soooo love to play cards wiht Obama.

        • justice4z says:

          Thanks. If correct they both showed extreme dishonesty and this should be trumpeted often and loudly. How is it she just happened to have that transcipt ? How would Obama know she had it ?

          • justice4z says:

            Rush on the incident

            Candy Crowley has admitted she got it wrong. Go ahead, we might as well play it. Grab sound bite eight. This is Candy Crowley last night on CNN. Anderson Cooper said, “Candy, a moment which obviously now both campaigns will be focusing on. Tell us your thoughts during that moment.” He means You know, you acted like a replacement ref in the NFL. You went in and you tried to help Obama. Obama asked you to read the transcript, and you had the transcript!

            Isn’t that amazing?

            Obama says (impression), “Check the transcript,” and Candy Crowley had it! Did you notice that in this video? Romney goes out there and says, “You didn’t call a terrorist attack. It’s on the record. You want to say you called it a terrorist attack?” Obama points at Candy, “Check the transcript,” and she lo and behold, she had it! Shazam! The president said to the moderator (impression), “Check the transcript,” and she had it (laughs) and she read from it! And it was a lie. It was wrong, and so she walked it back last night.

            • pbunyan says:

              Correct, except Obama didn’t say “Check the transcript”, he clearly said “Get the transcript” which, in my opinion is considerable more damning as evidence that he new she had it.

              • justice4z says:

                Yes I agree. Get the transcript. He knew she had it. This is a major mistake however. How could he have known she had it? Why would she have it? Why did the administration blame it on a film trailer with was hardly seen at all? How many people and how much damage was caused as a result of calling attention to the film? This belongs to the current administration. They own it.

          • howie says:

            Simple, it was a set up. Only a fool would not realize it. They are liberals.

  10. sputzie says:

    Conspiracy theory, Conspiracy theory, Conspiracy theory! Enough already it is obvious to me in the video that Obama knew that Kerry was in that immediate vicinity of the stage because Candy had just asked to not go away. As he is then glancing over that general area he says hello Kerry because Candy Crowley had just given the questoners name in the introduction.Once the gentleman stood up Obama verified his name because he was expecting a woman as kerry tends to be a name used more for women than men. He wanted to make sure that he had heard the name correctly. Personally for me it makes no difference wheather it was a terrorist attack or spontaneous demonstration. The end result is the same. What I think gets overlooked in the whole debate is the fact that after the embassy incident, tens of thousands of Libyan Civilians with the support of the government and military took to the streets in Support of the United States and attacked the compound that housed the suspected terrorist militia that was responsible for the murders and chased them right out of the City. We will never ever be able to stop all terrorist attacks.They will always have moments where they are able to carry through with there terrible acts, no matter which party is in power. The bottom line is this was an act that was caried out by a few radical individuals. The overwhelming view of the populace is one of gratitude and respect for the United States. The tragic incident should not be overplayed as an indictment on Americas current foreign policy.

    • howie says:

      Overplayed? The President lied to America for two weeks. The President knew right away this was aTerror Attack. I knew it right away. How could POTUS not? He lied to us on purpose. Yougottabekiddingme. My main problem is the actions post attack by the Obama Administration. This could easily have been foreseen. Obama can take his Muslim inscribed wedding ring and shove it. He gotta go. He is a danger to national security. The attack on the Camel Caravan starts in 10…9…8…7…

      • If I said what I thought should happen to our ‘Liar in Chief’ I would be hauled away. WHEN will it finally be OK to call a spade a spade, admit that he is a traitor and an Enemy of the State and finally DO something to fix it?????? We keep waiting, hoping and praying but NOTHING ever happens. Has God truly abandoned us for good? If there was a just God he would have turned Obama into a smoking black cinder by now!

        • michellc says:

          God gives us free will and as hard as this is for us to understand God loves even Obama. That’s not to say God won’t have his vengeance but that’s in his own time and his own judgment. God is a just God that’s why he gave even Obama his free will.

    • stellap says:

      200-man terror group armed with rocket-propelled grenades, carrying out a carefully-planned attack, not “a few radical individuals”. If, indeed, “tens of thousands of Libyan Civilians ……….”, why would they not arrest them rather than chase them “right out of the City”? Anyway, I never heard of any such thing happening. Do you have evidence to back up that claim? It is altogether proper that the “tragic incident” should be called by its proper name – a planned terror attack. And four Americans were killed, including our ambassador, which is certainly an indictment on America’s current foreign policy. Our government thought it was okay to wait two weeks to investigate the matter – by the FBI, as if it was a domestic criminal matter.

      Conspiracy theory. What do you have to say about the fact that Kerry said he and his friends made up the question the day before, when the questions had already been chosen by Ms Crowley?

    • thefirstab says:

      That’s a nice piece you wrote. Do you work in DC or Chicago? How much are you being paid? I work in PR, perhaps you have some openings? Ummm… nevermind, I value my integrity.
      By the way, this is the first I have heard about any retaliation from “tens of thousands of Libyan Civilians”. Can you provide any supporting documentation? I apologize to all if this has already been provided.

    • michellc says:

      My daughter told me about a co-worker of hers this morning who is not too bright. She joined in on their conversation about the debate last night and said, “I don’t understand if the President said it was a terrorist attack the day after then why did I watch him on Letterman say it was movie protestors who got out of control?”
      So like I said she’s not too bright and she’s asking that question, so I’m sure so are many others.
      This was the final nail in Obama’s coffin.

    • John Galt says:

      “and attacked the compound that housed the suspected terrorist militia that was responsible for the murders and *** chased them right out of the City.” ***

      I call BS. Substitute *** assisted their escape *** conforms better to the facts: (1) no shots fired and (2) only four out of an estimated 200 attackers apprehended.

I thought it was odd frame of reference at the time as we were not allowed to see Romney’s reaction to Crowly’s preposterous statement. Now it makes sense, the whole thing was staged.

          I thought he had a wire during the first debate. He kept pausing in the middle of sentences, then speaking with abnormal vocal inflection, like someone was reading him the response one or two words at a time and he had to pause to listen. That’s probably why he didn’t feel the need to do much studying.

  15. Bette says:

    I saw a few clapping…very few clapping way in the back. Hard to see all of them in the video. Even if they did, these were suppose to be undecided voters. Any clapping indicates they were not undecided at all. Further, the clapping on that subject was inappropriate. People died…Obama lied…lets all stand up and cheer? Those that clapped were either in the tank for O or clueless about the subject.

  16. ackbarsays says:

    I honestly don’t believe that Obama knew who Kerry was or where Kerry was sitting or what the question would be ahead of time. Crowley gestured in Kerry’s direction as she was saying his name, and we don’t see off camera what was going on, but there may have been someone handing Kerry a microphone. Then Obama began walking in that direction but seems to clearly not know exactly who he’s talking to as he says “Hello, Kerry.” Looking at Kerry’s Youtube page, the one political video he has on his page is a very anti-Obama video.

    • michellc says:

      I’m leaning that way regarding Kerry Ladka, I think he was giving an ad to his company with “my brain trust @”
      The rest of it though was a set up imo between the hag and Obama. She chose the questions and had the time to alert the campaign. The whole transcript thing and possibly even the clapping being started by FLOTUS.

    • You focus to much on emphasis on the wrong syllable….. Watch:

  17. The Libya was certainly a setup to attempt to stop the bad press they have been getting about it. Crowley and CNN was doing her civic liberal duty by protecting Obama, they even did after saying Obama called it an act of terror. If only they had the truth on their side, won’t matter much with most who watch CNN.

    So when do we conservatives get a conservative host to make president Obama answer hostile questions to him again and again and again. This is ridiculous. Romney did well considering he was debating two people and in a very hostile environment. I did not like all his answers, but on the balance he is head and tails better than Obummer.

    • Bette says:

      They don’t. I believe Fox News said they were not invited to participate in any of the debates and I can’t imagine any other conservative source that BHO would agree to.

  22. Bette says:

    It is interesting that the CNN post debate poll shows Obama decidedly won the debate, but on the issues Romney was considered more knowledgeable about the economy and healthcare, seen as a stronger leader, answered the questions more directly and was stronger on taxes. Barry Bear though won in the 2 important categories that we all worry about day and night…HE IS MORE LIKABLE AND HE CARES MORE ABOUT YOUR LIFE. Now won’t you all sleep better if we have a president like that even if, as we all know, it is a load of horse manure? Who needs leadership, economic intelligence, a responsible healthcare plan and a good tax plan? It is all about warm fuzzes, right? NOT!

      It sounds like those polled don’t quite understand what winning a debate means. Maybe they’re American Idol voters.
      Something though that caught my eye in this article. They were 33 percent Democratic and 33 percent Republican — which means it’s weighted a bit to include about 8 percent more Republicans than the voting population as a whole.

      I’m supposed to believe there are only 25% Republican voters? Why do people keep wanting to make the claim that it’s a D+ 8 electorate?

        I am waiting. Romney is hitting 50% with the FP debate coming up. Obomba is going to have to bomb something. All the terrorists are hiding in the hospitals, schools, and baby food factories. That leaves Hadji’s used Camel Lot. I think he has to bomb, or attack, something in Lybia. But what?

    Excellent play-by-play on what the progs do, Sundance. Thank you. Crowley and Obama’s smugness and condescension was on full display. Major turn off. Even more so when they are flat out lying with their scripted performance.

            • I agree. After looking at Centrist Dem sites today, it appears Obama has lost more Hillary Clinton Democrats with that debate performance. I guess you would call them “blue dogs” or Moderate Socialists.

              • woohoowee says:

                In some parts of the country those “Blue Dog” Dems are known as “Yeller (yellow) Dog” Dems. Thing is, many of these folks aren’t Dems at all. They don’t believe in socialism and all this “fair” garbage, but they are convinced that the Republicans are the party of high taxation and the Dems are all about the working man keeping everything he earns. I kid you not. Politics doesn’t interest them, but they do vote.

                The good news is that it appears Obama and Crew have opened some eyes:-)

    I caught the “set up” you mention about how Obama abruptly dispatched her to “Read the transcript” as if she were his dutiful personal secretary. Not more than one second later and without even a pretense at fumbling to do any veritable fact-checking (which certainly would have taken at least moments if not minutes were it not a pre-communicated, pre-scripted contingency plan), Crawly bursts out with her referee whistle statement.

  30. ctdar says:

  31. Coast says:

    I and my entire family were shocked when she immediately and magically pulled out a transcript as soon as the president asked. Yep, total dishonestly by both the media and Obama. I hope Romney gets to “discuss” this during the next debate. Did you also notice the “smug” smile that Obama had on his face as he said “proceed Governor”? He knew exactly what she had in her hand.

  32. jms says:

    Obama tells Crowley to “Get the transcript”, then Crowley holds up what is obviously the transcript. How did Obama know that she had a transcript of the rose garden briefing sitting on her desk if the whole thing wasn’t planned in advance? That was obvious to me what I was watching it. I think Romney was too flabbergasted to respond properly. He knew it was some sort of setup, and actually he handled it very well.

    • howie says:

      He made it out with his hair intact. That audience was all Lib. What a hoax. Why to they have all this undecided BS anyway. Why not let real Leftists and real conservatives ask the questions? Throw in a libertarian too. Give me a break. Only a stupid fool is “undecided.” You would have to be a total neurotic imbecile to be undecided. Good Grief. Maybe they could decide if they went and had their Tarot Cards read by a Gypsy.

    • Bette says:

      Missed your post earlier and raised the same issue on another thread. There are 3 things here that are weird. 1) she had the transcript; 2) Obama knew she had it; 3) They knew Romney would bring up the Rose Garden speech out of all the possible responses he could have chosen on Benghazi, especially considering the original question was why was additional security denied. 1&2 are obvious, The media is on the tank for Obama, but #3? Could Romney have a possible mole in his campaign or some “bugs” planted where he was prepping for the debate?

  33. ctdar says:

    The movie “Obama 2016″ came out on DVD yesterday. DH picked it up at earlier today and we just finished watching it. Everything Obama has done over the last 4 years makes perfect sense now as it weaved a tapestry of what makes him tick and why he doesnt care about the sky rocketing deficit, the doubled numbers dependent on food stamps, government control over health, banking system, stranglehold on US generated fuel, approval of occupy wall street protesters, massive taxes on the wealthy, whether Iran gets nuclear capabilities, passivity toward what happens to Israel, etc, etc
    Obama was born & raised as an anti colonist…he hates America so much that he wants us to be the ones oppressed by those that whites once oppressed.

  34. Popeye's Spinach says:

    My heart goes out to Mitt Romney, a true American, a doer. It takes courage to stand up against these lib moderators. I saw how upset Anne and her sons were after the debate. They must have caught on to what happened was a set up. Everyone knew, so did Chaffetz. Romney left early and I’m glad because the atmosphere in the “Town Hall” was sickening. Most of the audience crowded around Michelle and Obama asking for their autographs. Mitt Romney is head and shoulders above Obama. He promised that kid a job and you just know the kid switched votes to Romney even though he was most likely a plant. You know, for a sinking moment now, I felt as if Benghazi was happening all over again to our US presidential candidate. Romney was ambushed. I was shocked at how quickly each plan of attack unrolled astonishingly from the reference to Act of Terror to Candy Crowley butting in to audience suddenly clapping, far too quick for it to have been spontaneous. One saving grace is that the scoop happened in front of probably over 70 million witnesses. The focus groups on undecided voters afterwards came out clearly in Romney’s favor, many expressing outright anger towards Barack Obama.

    My prayers to Mitt Romney and his family for strength and resilience.

  36. musivick von lunas says:

    bring on the video snip where Romney Twice asks Øbama to swear he called the Benghazi event ‘terrorism’ the day after…Øbama obliges, thus packing lies upon lies in a self defensive act… i hope that the Romney Ads run this snippit from now to election day that reminds the voters that Øbama is looking out for himself first & nobody else second

  39. Bette says:

    Obama changes narrative. He now claims he always called it an terrorist attack starting with his speech in the Rose Garden. The Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, is named by Senator Dianne Feinstein as the person that gave Susan Rice, the Ambassor to the U.N., her talking points about the video as being what initiated the attack.

    The White House now states they believe it was a preemptive attack against the expanding CIA presence in Benghazi and the annex adjacent to the consulate compound.

    I made a post earlier about what I believed happened and the reason for the video story and then the resulting cover up. Not sure if anyone saw it, but it makes more even more sense now and I will try to piece together what I had and will repost it.

      Today’s Washington Post has this article….I’m truly amazed…

      RALEIGH, N.C. — The head of the Democratic National Committee is distancing herself from the effort to raise money for her party’s 2012 convention in Charlotte, which fell millions short despite breaking a pledge to forgo cash from special interests.

      At a campaign event Thursday in North Carolina, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz said she knows nothing about the sources for the $24 million raised by the convention’s host committee, an amount well short of its $36.7 million goal. To make up the gap, organizers spent $5 million donated by corporations to rent the convention hall and borrowed $8 million more from a credit line underwritten by a corporate partner

      Wasserman Shultz pledged in Charlotte last year that the convention would be paid for without money from corporations, lobbyists or political group……

  50. Excellent post! You can almost sense the trap when Obama asks Romney to repeat his claim, knowing what is to come.

    You know what’s strange? Go back and look at the media coverage from 9 to 10 days after the attack. You see a constant refrain, like this one from CNN.

Whatever you think happened that tripped up both Romney and Obama concerning Libya, watch the Steve Pieczenik You Tube video in the- 2012 ELECTION LINKS TO 9/11- section.and you will understand why it is inconsequential to think in terms of a debated retort to a question, but the real reasons why were in Libya under N.A.T.O and the geo-political ramifications of the Petro/Dollar/Banking equation.

    All roads lead back to 9/11 – that’s why it is not debated. This may help some of those who missed the who and why behind all of the current events, still linked to 9/11;
