The Library of Lies, Part 2: Staggering collection of Obama and Clinton lies on the Benghazi attacks and embassy murders

People died. Hillary lied. Obama lied, too.

They lied early. They lied often. They lied deliberately.

They lied about the slaughter of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya, at the hands of al-Qaeda-tied terrorists.

They lied, but not to protect vital national secrets or flummox America’s enemies. They lied to get reelected. And they lied directly, knowingly, and repeatedly to the American people.

Although I am a confirmed and consistent critic of Hillary and Obama, I long had cut them some slack regarding their first comments about the Benghazi attack. Thanks to the fog of war, I thought, they could not be blamed if they initially misattributed this deadly onslaught to a mob inflamed about an incredibly amateur Internet video that dissed the Prophet Mohammad. If they innocently got it wrong in, say, the first twelve hours after the assault began, they might deserve a grudging pass — at least for those early announcements.

Alas, I was unjustifiably generous toward Hillary and Obama. Instead, I should have been profoundly cynical.
As FactCheck.org chronicled on Friday, and L. Gordon Crovitz detailed in the Wall Street Journal on Monday, Clinton issued a statement on the attack at 10:32 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on September 11, 2012. It read, in part: “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.” But that was a lie.
At 11:12 p.m., just 40 minutes later, Hillary e-mailed her daughter, Chelsea, with the truth: “Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an al Qaeda-like group.” Hillary’s e-mail was addressed to “Diane Reynolds,” Chelsea’s code name. This smoking e-mail surfaced during Hillary’s October 22 hearing before the House Select Committee on Benghazi.

At 11:49 p.m., Hillary contacted Libyan president Mohamed Magariaf, also with the truth: “There is a gun battle ongoing, which I understand Ansar [al] Sharia is claiming responsibility for.” This group is al-Qaeda’s Libyan franchisee.

The next day, September 12, 2012, Hillary resumed her public lies: “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior, along with the protest that took place at our embassy in Cairo yesterday, as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet,” she said in a speech at the State Department. “America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear — there is no justification for this, none.”
Echoing Hillary’s lie du jour, Obama chimed in with his own lie that day: “Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths,” he declared in the Rose Garden. “We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None.”
Obama’s press secretary, Jay Carney, lied even more explicitly that day: “We have no information to suggest that it was a planned attack.”

Hillary toggled back to private-truth mode at 3:04 p.m., when she phoned Hisham Qandil, prime minister in Egypt’s Islamist Muslim Brotherhood government. She told him: “We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack — not a protest. Based on the information we saw today, we believe that the group that claimed responsibility for this was affiliated with al-Qaeda.”

“You can’t be square with the American people,” Representative Jim Jordan (R., Ohio) said about Hillary’s initial statements on Benghazi. “You tell your family it’s a terrorist attack, but not the American people. You can tell the president of Libya it’s a terrorist attack, but not the American people. And you can tell the Egyptian prime minister it’s a terrorist attack, but you can’t tell your own people the truth.”

Hillary reverted to public lies that September 14, during the ceremony at Andrews Air Force Base in which she and Obama welcomed home the flag-draped caskets of U.S. ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, technical officer Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. “We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with,” Hillary said.

Hillary took things a totalitarian step further when — according to Tyrone Woods’s father, Charles — Hillary told him, “We will make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.”

“You had a video released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character, who has an extremely offensive video directed at Mohammad and Islam,” Obama told TV host David Letterman on September 18. Obama added that “extremists and terrorists used this as an excuse to attack a variety of embassies, including the consulate in Libya.”
Fully 14 days after learning that the Benghazi attack was a coordinated, al-Qaeda-linked Islamic-terrorist broadside against American territory and personnel, Obama stood before the United Nations General Assembly and lied, lied, lied: “There is no video that justifies an attack on an embassy,” Obama said that September 25. “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

Just two days into that future, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies fulfilled Hillary’s chilling prophecy to Charles Woods. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the Egyptian Coptic Christian who created the notorious Internet video, Innocence of Muslims, was arrested, supposedly because he used a pseudonym and thereby violated parole on an unrelated bank-fraud conviction. He subsequently was sentenced to a year in the La Tuna Federal Correctional Institution in Texas. Never mind that the First Amendment should have shielded his right to produce whatever video he wanted on Mohammad or any other religious figure. (Rather than molder behind bars, the producers of Broadway’s The Book of Mormon still laugh all the way to the bank, as hard as their audiences howl nightly.) Nakoula was a convenient patsy. As such, Hillary appears to have transformed him from a poor-quality filmmaker into a political prisoner.

Hillary and Obama buried the truth beneath an Oriental rug of lies. It covered up painful facts, lest they contradict the comforting campaign theme that Obama unveiled at the Democrat National Convention just five days before Benghazi: “al-Qaeda is on the path to defeat, and Osama bin Laden is dead.” And it worked!

The truth about Benghazi, what Hillary and Obama knew, and when they knew it, remained obscured until last week. This helped Obama win the White House in November 2012, and put Hillary in a comfortable position from which to run as his successor.

Regardless, with this much of the truth now out in the open, nothing that either of these two liars utters can be taken at face value ever again. They already were unbelievable, thanks to the Liar-in-Chief’s “If you like your plan, you can keep your plan” serial deceptions on Obamacare and other multifarious matters. Ditto Hillary’s decades of mendacity, from cattle futures to “there is no classified material” on the clandestine e-mail server that she willfully hid from scrutiny for seven years.

Whatever embers of credibility either of these reprobates may have possessed were extinguished with the ice water of Hillary’s testimony last Thursday.

Obama’s and Hillary’s lies about the Benghazi massacre confirm, once and for all, that they are twin moral vacuums. They deserve all of the scorn, disrespect, and rejection that such a disgraceful distinction demands.

Obama: If one lie is good, two lies must be twice as good…

Our Liar-in-Chief...

Two lies in one short statement.

Lie No. 1:  Obama is not a Christian, does not know or believe in the Bible, and does not attempt to promote or live by his claimed faith.  Throughout his time in office it has become obvious that if he can claim to be a proponent of ANY faith, that faith is Islam.  (Always remember: Islam is the faith that tells its adherents to kill those who are unbelievers, just as we have seen them act over and over again. Islam is NOT a religion of peace.)

Lie No. 2:  Obama does not believe in traditional one man – one woman marriage, since he continually promotes and espouses gay marriage.

A real inspiration and role model for US citizens, don’t you think?

Obama lied to the American public over and over again in trying to sell his health care program, and now we find that his administration just thinks we’re nothing but stupid and gullible. How did America manage to elect this man?

The American people were lied to repeatedly, and now we’re being called “stupid.”

President Obama promised that Obamacare didn’t fund abortion. That was a lie.

The Administration promised it wasn’t a tax. A lie. They promised it would save us money. Another lie. They promised the new healthcare law will allow us to keep our plans and our doctors. Not true. None of it. All deliberate lies.

We have seen Obamacare premiums rise by huge amounts for both businesses and individuals. If your auto insurance policy, which is usually renewable every six months, costs you, say, $600 this time around and then you get a renewable policy notice in the mail for the same policy at $1000 for the next six months, would you be on the phone to your insurance agent pretty quickly? Absolutely you would. People are hopping mad because of the same thing happening with Obamacare. The Affordable Care Act is turning out to be anything but affordable.  Just another big lie from the Big O. (That’s either an OH or a ZERO, depending on your frame of mind at this point regarding the current Democrat occupant of the Oval Office. For us, it’s a ZERO. A big one.)

Now the architect of Obamacare is calling the American people “stupid.” On at least three different occasions over the past couple of years, the man who was the principal designer of the Affordable Care Act said, on camera and without any hesitation, that Americans are stupid. Too stupid to understand what we need in the way of health care, and too stupid to know that the administration is selling us down the river with its Affordable Care Act. (If you’re not really upset yet at the treatment you’ve been getting over the past six years from the Big O and his administration, you should be.)

Obama himself, the White House staff, the folks who put together the whole Obamacare program, the democrats in the House and Senate, the IRS, the Clinton-led State Department, the Veterans Administration…lies, incompetence, and more lies from all of them.

Obama and his “my way or the highway” approach to the presidency has been challenged again and again by people who are used to, at a minimum, a civil exchange of ideas in this country. Obamacare has been challenged in court often; its abortion-pill mandate was defeated in 7 cases and at the Supreme Court.

Now we have a real chance to defeat Obamacare at the Supreme Court and get you a shot at a healthcare program you can afford and which addresses your best interests. When the healthcare practitioners, the hospitals, and the health insurance companies all don’t like the same government-dictated program, that should tell you something.

Take action with us.

The wealthiest Americans are gaining under Obama, while everyone else — the bottom 90% of us — are still losing ground. Guess there’s “no strategy yet” for that, either…

He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” – Benjamin Franklin

Still a zero...Reason bounces off liberals like bullets off Superman. They are impervious to any form of logic, which is why, despite their deeply flawed philosophy, they have remained relevant for so long. If the facts were laid bare, and everyone were exposed to liberalism in such a way that they would see it for what it truly is, it would be relegated to a small enclave of crazies on the fringes of societies. Unfortunately, because of the media and the supreme spinning powers of the left, a large portion of Americans buy their garbage wholesale.

Every time evidence emerges that might make a leftist hero look bad, the spin machine comes out in full force. One of the central themes of the Obama administration has been wealth inequality. Obama preaches about wealth inequality, and how the wealthy should pay their fair share, on an ongoing basis. A new survey by the Federal Reserve, however, has shed light on the cockroaches in the woodwork, calling into question Obama’s economic policies.

According to Jennifer Pompi of the Washington Times:

Under President Obama, the richest 10 percent were the only income group of Americans to see their median incomes rise, according to a survey released this week by the Federal Reserve. The Fed data covered the years 2010-2013, during which period Mr. Obama constantly campaigned against income inequality and won re-election by painting his Republican rival as a tool of Wall Street plutocrats.”

Now, any reasonable Obama-supporting individual would wonder why, under Obama’s watch, the wealthiest in America have gained wealth, while the rest of us have lost wealth. They would see the dissonance between Obama’s rhetoric and the facts, and come to the conclusion that Obama’s policies are either wildly ineffective, or he’s simply not looking out for Americans like he claims. (NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  The only American we KNOW he’s looking out for is himself.)  But, excuses are on the way, I’m certain of it. So let’s do a rundown of the excuses that will likely be used by the left to justify Obama’s failure.

1. It’s Bush’s fault. The classic. The left will claim that Rome can’t be built in a day, and that it was the disastrous policies of Bush that are still keeping the poor and middle class down.

2. The data is skewed, or unreliable. The left will try to discredit the source, and claim that the data isn’t reflective of reality, that the survey is inaccurate.

3. It’s only a matter of time until it gets better. It’ll just take time. They will point to falling unemployment (despite a record number of Americans out of the work force), and say that Obama’s policies just need time.

4. It would have been worse without Obama’s policies. The left will argue that without Obama’s economic policies, it would have been substantially worse. This one is the clincher. If all else fails, make stuff up that no one can refute, because it’s pure speculation.

Liberals can never admit that their policies may have failed, so they will make excuses till the cows come home. You cannot project the image of a perfect, utopian philosophy while also recognizing its flaws. Flaws do not exist in utopia, and therefore, they cannot be tolerated. The liberal hold on the average American voter is so tenuous that they must continue to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes. Their philosophy is so extreme, and flawed, that it must be wrapped in the most beautiful paper to hide just how ugly it is.

The problem is, you can wrap even a cowpie in gold, but once the gold is ripped away, it’s still a cowpie. There will be a time when all the excuses will no longer work, because believability will be strained to the breaking-point. That time is coming soon. Until then, I’ll be looking out for my suggested excuses on MSNBC.

[by Frank Camp, writing for LAST RESISTANCE] 

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  After all the lies Obama has told us, years and years of lies preceded by election campaigns full of lies, is there really ANYONE in this once-great nation of ours who is still listening to Mr. O?  The “breaking point,” whatever it was (probably the Obamacare “you can keep your doctor/health plan” promises), is well behind us.

Obamacare still increasing premiums and limiting access to doctors, even with higher enrollment numbers…

Well, what is arguably the most painful day of the year, Tax Day, is finally over. Here’s our recap of the latest spending-related news, in case you need a reminder about where your money will be going.

The Cost of Obamacare. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) recently released a report that revised the estimated cost of Obamacare. The new projections estimate thatthe federal government will spend nearly $2 trillion on the ACA over the next decade.

If you like your metrics, you can keep your metrics. With as much money as taxpayers will be shelling out to pay for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you would think the government might want to have a clear way to measure the law’s success. You would be wrong. The Census Bureau has decided to change the way it measures who is uninsured in America, making it difficult to measure the effects of the ACA in its next report.

Waste: The Final Frontier. Star Trek has made another appearance in the annals of government waste. In 2013, federal workers were paid to watch the new Star Trek movie. In what was described as a team-building exercise, a group of federal employees and contractors spent one day last summer at a local restaurant followed by an afternoon watching the movie—at taxpayers’ expense.

Enrollment is up, but doctors are nowhere to be found. President Obama announced that 8 million individuals had signed up for health insurance through ACA exchanges. Despite the new numbers, many of those who enrolled have been left with rising premiums and smaller networks. Among the states seeing the sharpest increases were Delaware, with an average 100 percent premium increase, New Hampshire, with a 90 percent average increase, and Indiana with a 54 percent average premium increase.

Mr. Obama announced 8 million individuals had gained health insurance through the Affordable Care Act (ACA). While the administration touted that they surpassed all previous projections, there was still missing information from those numbers. Most importantly, the administration failed to note the distinction between people that gained coverage after previously being uninsured and individuals that were replacing an existing policy.  

Although the administration exceeded expectations with enrolling individuals, many are still left with unaffordable plans or limited coverage. The New York Post recently reported that some patients with neurological diseases are losing their doctors under new ACA certified plans. Margaret Figuero, an Arden Heights resident of Staten Island, has now lost access to her doctors, which leaves her unable to get prescriptions for her medication. Figuero, who has had four brain operations, enrolled in a new EmblemHealth insurance program as required by the ACA. According to The Post, “After paying her premium, she received a temporary ID card. But when she went to order medication, the pharmacists said her name wasn’t in the system. And she said her doctors were not included in her new medical plan.”  

In addition, Forbes magazine recently reported that health insurance premiums are showing the sharpest increases perhaps ever. A Morgan Stanley healthcare analysis of 148 brokers showed that average premium increases are in excess of 11 percent in small group market and 12 percent in the individual market. Some states are showing increases 10 to 50 times that amount and the “increases are largely due to changes under the ACA.”

According to Forbes, “The prior survey conducted in January also showed rates rising during the fall of 2013, but the new increases will come on top of those hikes and are even sharper. That prior survey of 131 brokers found that December 2013 rates were rising in excess of 6% in the small group market, and 9% in the individual market.” Among the states seeing the sharpest increases were Delaware at an average of 100 percent premium increase, New Hampshire at 90 percent average increase and Indiana a 54 percent average premium increase. 

[from an article by Natalie Webb in BANKRUPTING AMERICA]

 

ON ANOTHER SUBJECT, and we know this is going to be terribly shocking to many of our readers, according to a recent poll done by Fox News, the majority of Americans believe that President Obama is usually lying.

Sixty-one percent of the people who took the poll believe that President Obama is lying at least some of the time on important issues. An additional twenty percent say that the President lies “here and there.” That means that eighty-one percent of Americans believe that Barack Obama lies to us.

Sadly, the poll also finds the President’s approval rating at forty-two percent. That means about forty percent of the people who took this poll know that the President is a liar and they just don’t care.

obamaliesI know. I know.

A lot of you believe that all politicians are liars and that’s just how life is.

But it’s not how things should be. We don’t have to settle for men and women who lie to us with impunity. We don’t have to settle for leaders to whom lying has become second nature. We don’t have to settle for politicians with no moral compass and a character reminiscent of something slimy that you might find on the bottom of your shoe.

We can demand that our representatives be above reproach. We can demand that they speak honestly with us. We can expect them to be morally upright and to build a wall between themselves and corruption.

The only reason our politicians get away with being liars is because we let them. Our politicians are bad because we allow them to be. It’s our fault.

But we can fix it. Let’s start with the current crop of liars, thieves and swindlers. Let’s vote them out and vote in honest, decent men and women with upright moral fiber.

NORM ‘n’ AL say, “Amen!”
