POTUS AWOL DURING BENGHAZIGATE SLAUGHTER

POTUS AWOL DURING BENGHAZIGATE SLAUGHTER:SEXUALLY COMPROMISED, DRUGGED UP & ALCOHOLIC STUPOR.CRIMINAL COVER UP ABOUNDS!

Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

In the lead up to Benghazigate 13 formal requests to help secure the Libyan Consulate were rebuffed. As a matter of record, stand down orders were the order of the day, they came from several quarters.

Intrinsically, former Sec of State “Madame Hill” was busy misappropriating 8 billion dollars from the public kitty for this and that, she had no inclination to secure American interests. Not unlike her boss, arming Syrian “rebels” took priority. You know, the Al-Qaeda linked kind!  

NOT only that, when the slaughter of Americans went down, the so-called Commander-in-Chief had his hands full. Ponder this odious truth: it was NOT with pressing national interests!

This blog has made no bones about the immoral and depraved behavior of the Commander-in-Chief, and in too many ways to enumerate. Book-worthy. Rest assured, bashing the POTUS has not been a high point of these pages, as it represents a nadir in the glorious history of a once great nation. Tragic.

 Nevertheless, it is an “open secret” that he imbibes alcohol to the degree that he can be classified either as a full blown alcoholic or an alcohol abuser…six of one, half a dozen of another. And it’s a subject one can’t blow smoke in this direction, as recognizing the signs is “easy peasy” …..

In fact, more than a few pics online show the POTUS in a deeply inebriated state. Oh…that recognizable glassy stare…the more often than not liquor-held hand. Cringe-worthy. Deeply disturbing…..

The Bamster is also known to enjoy his “blow”, even though he insists it’s a youthful drug dalliance long gone…but the scuttlebutt says otherwise, as he toked while a U.S. Senator too! And when one places the above in sharp relief next to his sexual dalliances, well, then it is “natural” for him to be “incapacitated”, more often than not. Nobody should think this is a whole lot of conspiracy-talk, you just need to go from point A to B and see what secrets shake out.

Besides, this is a man-child who is hedonist to his core, and his continued “down low” adventures are part of his innate lifestyle….‘Shock! Obama Was ‘Incapacitated’ Due To ‘Staggering, inapt activities’ between the hours of 1800 and 2300 on the night of Benghazi…

EVEN though most news outlets – those in the conservative arena too – are loathe to get to the real down and dirty, it is imperative to realize that more than one factor was at play, when Benghazigate went down. It is what it is. 

 Fmr. NSC Spokesman Tommy Vietor: Obama Was Not In The Situation Room During Benghazi Attack

View Video

BRET BAIER: People on the ground testified that they knew where the ambassador was, that they were military in their precision. It was not guys coming to protest. They had mortars and heavy weapons.

TOMMY VIETOR: Bret, a couple of things. I was in the Situation Room that night, okay. We didn’t know where the ambassador was definitively.

BAIER: Was the president in the Situation Room?

VIETOR: No. And the fact that your network at one time reported that he watched video feed of the attack as it was ongoing is part of what I think is a pattern of inaccurate –

BAIER: Where was the president?

VIETOR: In the White House. Let me finish my initial statement. The notion that we could, you know, divine motives from a drone feed I think is wrong. And I also think this idea that the military had the capability to rescue those individuals but chose not to is I think extremely unfair to the military. And Admiral Mullen said basically the opposite.

BAIER: In the ARB report.

VIETOR: Right.

BAIER: Where was the president?

VIETOR: In the White House.

BAIER: He wasn’t in the Situation Room?

VIETOR: At what point in the evening?

BAIER: Any point in the evening.

VIETOR: It’s well known that when the attack was first briefed to him it was in the Oval Office and he was updated constantly. And during that briefing he told Tom Donilon and his Joint Chiefs and Sec Def to begin moving all military assets into the region.

BAIER: So when Hillary Clinton talks to him at 10:00 p.m., he’s where?

VIETOR: I don’t know. I don’t have a tracking device on him in the residence.

BAIER: But you were in the Situation Room and he wasn’t there.

VIETOR: Yes, I was in the White House.

BAIER: And the president wasn’t in the Situation Room?

VIETOR: Not in the room I was in. Let’s just be clear. You don’t have to be in the Situation Room to monitor an intelligence situation. The PDB is in the Oval Office.

Alas, on the upside, there is some room for hope, something which may even surprise the most jaded. In fact, there are increasing rumblings, suggesting that justice may yet be in the offing. Nevertheless, caution is the watchword. As a result, let’s not bring out the party hats – for now. Here’s the latest poop and scoop:

Poop and Scoop One:

Apparently, new documents reveal Benghazi cover up emanated from the White House. Hmm…what are the chances?

Poop and Scoop Two:

Well, even the People’s Reps are getting in on the act – House declares war on Benghazi cover up - albeit kicking and screaming. But never mind, inquiring minds demand to know:what the hell took them so long??

Poop and Scoop Three:

Wonder of wonders…at least for appearances sake…even booze-addled, bonehead Boehner is (seemingly) on board:House Speaker John Boehner says special committee needed to investigate Benghazi!

Poop and Scoop Four:

Adding considerable heft to the indictment, along comes multiple level heavyweights weighing in too:CIA Expert: Damning Obama Verdict Should Lead To Arrest And Imprisonment Of Washington Criminals! From their mouth to G-d’s ears.

Poop and Scoop Five:

Weighing in here as well is a CIA Whistleblower, he faces the ire of an angry Justice Dept. over Benghazi questions. Note, it should be overwhelmingly clear that this patriot is a “marked man”:

Longtime former CIA field operative turned whistleblower Robert “Tosh” Plumlee is currently in the crosshairs of a very angry Holder Justice Department for publicly posting 11 “questions” about Benghazi and the illegal weapons running operations being conducted by criminal elements within the U.S. government. Mr. Plumlee is no ordinary CIA whistleblower, however. Because of his extensive history and knowledge of the criminal infiltration into the U.S. government, their methods and operations, Mr. Plumlee has become one of the most dangerous men to the criminal cabal operating at the highest levels of the U.S. government. The Holder Justice Department and the criminal “gatekeepers” within the CIA and other government agencies desperately want him silenced—and they absolutely intend to do just that.

 Against the advice of many people, from his own attorney to those who care about his welfare in the face of direct and subtle threats, and under the reported threat of subpoena by U.S. Attorney General Holder himself, Mr. Plumlee laid it all out in stunning detail on the Wednesday, April 30, 2014 edition of The Hagmann & Hagmann Report. Based on information from his deep cover sources, the questions Mr. Plumlee formulated about Benghazi leave no doubt that criminal elements that exist within the highest levels of the U.S. government were engaged in a massive weapons smuggling operation based out of Benghazi and other locations in Libya.

Yes, as an American-Israeli, this American truth – Jewish dictum – remains supreme (regardless that I have “come home” to finally live in Israel): justice, justice you shall pursue…tzedek, tzedef tirdof…צדק צדק תרדוף !

‘Pro-American Anti-Sharia’ bill on verge of becoming law in FLORIDA!!

FLORIDA: Muslims are outraged that ‘Pro-American Anti-Sharia’ bill on verge of becoming law

florida-kouri-300x21121Conservative lawmakers in Florida are in the final stages of passing two bills that Muslims and their leftist allies say amount to nothing more than thinly veiled racism and xenophobia. But, both proposals have undergone extensive tweaking before finally making it to the House floor.

ALAC_logo

WFSU  After years of trying, Republican lawmakers led by Umatilla Senator Alan Hays are close to sending two bills dealing with local and state oversight and control to the governor’s desk. One codifies existing case law that U.S. and Florida law supersedes foreign practices, while the other makes local school boards solely responsible for selecting textbooks. Both bills however, stem from less-than-legitimate fears of Islamic influence.

The textbook controversy started last year when a group of parents in Volusia County, led by Deltona High School mom Valerie Velez, took to the streets to protest the inclusion of a single chapter devoted to Islam in a high school world history book. Although the text contained innumerable references to Christianity and Judaism within it’s more than one thousand pages, Velez attracted the attention of Senator Hays, who along with his House Sponsor, Shalimar Republican Representative Matt Gaetz, filed legislation to in their words “ensure parents have a say in what is taught to their children”.

Basic CMYK

“The bill also requires local school districts to establish an appeals process and the bill makes it clear that all responsibility for selection of instructional materials, whether from the state list or through another system that the school district develops, is entirely the responsibility of the school district,” Representative Gaetz described Monday.

Even though the state will still have the final say, the bill strengthens an existing rule that exempts school boards from having to choose text books from a state-approved list if the board so wishes. The bill also mandates districts set up an appeals process that would allow parents to object to the materials chosen. But, opponents of the bill say it’s tantamount to censorship and that it would open the door for laypeople to make educational decisions while ignoring experts in the field. Hassan Shibly is the Executive Director of Florida’s Council on American Islamic Relations or CAIR.

“They basically want to delete Islamic history from world history textbooks, which is ridiculous because the Islamic Empire, which lasted about a thousand years, at one point ruled almost a third of the world. So, you really just cannot delete Islamic history from world textbooks,” Shibly said in a phone interview Monday.

The Muslim-American advocate argues the bill is just the latest in Senator Hays’ long history of anti-Islamic activism and calls his foreign laws bill nothing more than a distraction. Lake Worth Democratic Senator Jeff Clemens asked Hays whether that measure is even necessary.

“I guess my question would be: does this solve the problem as you see it? Or are we going to be coming back here next year to do work on this bill?” Clemens questioned. “It would be my full expectation that this would solve the problem, based on Senator Simmons’ representation of it to me,” Hays answered.

The Umatilla Republican has filed the bill in one form or another since 2010. Originally, it specifically referred to Islamic Sharia law, but there’s no mention of that in this year’s draft. Instead, it bans any foreign law or practice that conflicts with state or federal law from inclusion in the Florida judicial system, specifically when it comes to family law. Many legal experts say those protections are already in existing case law. Because of that, CAIR’s Hassan Shibly thinks the Hays bill is a waste of time.

c60bf53ef019affa177f8970d700wi-vi

“This anti-Muslim legislation which is really just bad for faith, bad for freedom and bad for Florida is really just something that legislators like Alan Hays, who don’t have solutions to the real problems Florida is facing, are investing in to distract from the real problems in our state that need to be addressed,” Shibly charged.

Both measures have passed the less conservative Senate chamber and are expected to easily pass through the House. Governor Scott hasn’t yet said explicitly whether he’d sign them but has signaled some support for the proposals. In the event that both measures become law, CAIR is prepared to take the fight from the Capitol to the courtroom.

OOPS! Pork DNA found in halal chicken burgers

OOPS! Pork DNA found in halal chicken burgers

555-viPork traces have been found in halal chicken burgers in Birmingham, UK, after tests were carried out by the Birmingham City Council. According to the council, pork DNA was discovered in packs of 20 Humza brand chicken burgers, which were supplied by a Muslim company.

ABNA  The products were distributed by Roshan Foods, but there is no evidence to suggest it caused the contamination. A spokesperson has said the pork traces were discovered while the council was checking for horse.  

Unknown

Of the contamination Allama Qazi Abdul Aziz Chishti, spokesman for the Sharia Halal Board, said:“We have been warning the public of this type of contamination for several months now. We fear that this new revelation is just the tip of the iceberg, there is more to come.”  “Once again the Muslim consumer has been let down by another bunch of companies who merely care for their own pockets.

“The saddest aspect of this whole situation is that the company providing the meat was also known to be a Muslim company. We ask that the FSA and Birmingham Council do not show any softness to them, due to them being Muslims; they should be investigated and penalized like any other firm.”

This is what Saudi officials did to a young girl who professed “Jesus as her savior”

This is what Saudi officials did to a young girl who professed “Jesus as her savior”.

A recent report by a human rights organization in the Middle East stated that “..a young girl employed in Palmelkh, Saudi Arabia was barbarically punished because she had the audacity to say ‘..Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, is my personal Savior..’ “

b35bc482e5ab81e010e8a363ab3cb142x

ShariaUnveiled (h/t Jack) This angered many officials at her work and they ordered men to carry out the process of sewing her mouth shut, in order to stop her from expressing her love for Christ Jesus. Additionally, they sewed her left eye shut as an added form of punishment.

The process utilized was not only inhumane but unsanitary.  The plastic thread that was used contained chemicals, for the sole purpose of intentionally causing infection.

This story has been confirmed through Human Rights Organizations that called this report: ‘..not only a reflection of the deadly Saudi Arabian Human Rights System, but a clearly flagrant violation of women’s rights.

The Muslim Brotherhood is set to launch its own political party in Barack Hussein Obama’s ‘Islamic States of America’

Designated by most of the world as a “terrorist organization,” the Muslim Brotherhood is set to launch its own political party in Barack Hussein Obama’s ‘Islamic States of America’

6a00d8341c5c3553ef0128759f1db2970c-320wiWith an eye toward the 2016 election, the radical Muslim Brotherhood has built the framework for a political party in America that seeks to turn Muslims into an Islamofascist voting bloc. ’Muslim voters have the potential to be swing voters in 2016,” said Nihad Awad, executive director of terror-linked CAIR, in launching the benign-sounding U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, whose membership reads like a Who’s Who of Brotherhood front groups.

Investor’s Business Daily (h/t M Johnston)  “We are aiming to bring more participation from the Muslim community.” USCMO also aims to elect Islamists in Washington, with the ultimate objective of “institutionalizing policies” favorable to Islamists — that is, Sharia law.

MuslimBrotherhoodGoal-vi

This development bears careful monitoring in light of the U.S. Brotherhood’s recently exposed goal to wage a “civilization jihad” against America that explicitly calls for infiltrating the U.S. political system and “destroying (it) from within.”

The subversive plan was spelled out in hundreds of pages of founding archives that the FBI confiscated from a Brotherhood leader’s home in the Washington suburbs after 9/11. Translated from Arabic, the secret documents listed a number of Brotherhood front organizations, like CAIR, — some of which just happen to make up the newly formed USCMO.

c60bf53ef019affa177f8970d700wi-vi

Front and center is the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, the catalyst behind this Trojan horse jihadist political party.

CAIR is linked in federal criminal court documents to the terrorist group Hamas, the Brotherhood’s Palestinian branch. CAIR’s chief Awad, who announced the USCMO at the National Press Club, is so radioactive, the FBI refuses to do outreach with him and his so-called Muslim-rights group until it can “resolve whether there continues to be a connection between its executives and Hamas.”

dojcair-vi

Equally troubling is the Muslim American Society, another founding member of the USCMO. MAS was formed as “the overt arm of the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States,” a 2007 Justice Department court filing states. A 2011 MAS press release praised Osama bin Laden as “a visionary who believed in an Islamic state in Afghanistan.”

The list of bad actors doesn’t end there. The chairman of America’s new Islamist party is none other than Oussama Jammal, who once headed the notorious Bridgeview Mosque in Chicago.

0000809402097_370459_2244313_n-vi

One of that mosque’s leaders was arrested and jailed for funneling millions to Hamas. And one of its most honored guests was bin Laden’s spiritual mentor, the late Palestinian cleric Abdullah Azzam. Some of Azzam’s relatives are Bridgeview members.

“The walls were covered with Hamas posters and recruiting literature showing masked gunmen brandishing automatic weapons. . . . You could see daggers plunged into Jewish hearts wrapped up in American flags,” said Steve Emerson, describing the mosque in his book “American Jihad.” “They even had a library filled with terrorist videos.”

As Bridgeview’s president, Jammal blasted the FBI for arresting terrorist members and even expressed doubts that al-Qaida was responsible for 9/11. Not to worry. As head of the USCMO, he’ll see to it that the council places “premium” importance “on defining the common good based on the Quran and the model of the prophet (Muhammad), and coordinating institutions to implement that common good in American society.”

Sign seen at protest of Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt

Jammal and his equally checkered Brothers have a 30-point “policy platform” for “promoting Islam’s core universal principles to benefit American society” — none of which includes combating radicalism within the Muslim community.

Can any Muslim join USCMO? Nope. First you must fill out a four-page application and pass Brotherhood inspection. Then you have to cough up $1,000 a year — $3,500 if you want a voting membership.

Islamic reformer Zuhdi Jasser says he won’t be accepted. That’s because, as he astutely observes, America’s first Muslim political party is made up “of the inner core of American Islamist organizations” trying to “deceive Americans as an innocent ‘Muslim coalition.’”

Beijing Hotel Workers Already ‘fed up’

Beijing hotel workers already ‘fed up’ with Obama entourage in 3400-square-foot, $8,350-per-night suite inconveniencing ‘pretty much everyone’ – and the first lady’s mother is ‘barking at the staff’

  • Michelle Obama, her daughters and her mother Marian Robinson are staying in a sumptuous presidential suite at a Beijing Westin hotel
  • Mrs. Robinson has been ‘barking at the staff since she arrived,’ a hotel staffer said, adding that ‘we can’t wait for this to be over’
  • Secret Service agents are monopolizing elevators and booting high-paying guests from their rooms to occupy a block of space near the first lady
  • Both front and back doors of the hotel are blocked off, with Chinese and U.S. security agents screening everyone who enters
  • Ordinary Chinese describe Mrs. Obama and her family as kind and gracious, but hotel staff are ‘fed up’

Michelle Obama and three of her family members are staying in a $8,350-per-night Beijing presidential suite, but despite a 24-hour butler and other perks that come with the lodging, her entourage has inconvenienced ‘pretty much everyone’ and made the hotel staff ‘fed up,’ a well-placed hotel staffer has told MailOnline.

The sumptuous pad at the Westin Beijing Chaoyang hotel – its website calls the room ‘an oasis of comfort – is a 3,400-square-foot masterpiece including a private steam room, ‘corner sofas with silk pillows,’ and in-room dining for six.

But the Obamas’ stay has already affected staff and guests at the hotel, with the Westin front-desk veteran alleging that Mrs. Obama’s mother Marian Robinson has been ‘barking at the staff since she arrived.’

Many of the agents in Mrs. Obama’s detail are Asian-American, helping them avoid standing out while they protect the first lady — but confusing some hotel guests who don’t understand why they can’t board some elevators

Government security forces from both China and the U.S. started Thursday to screen everyone who entered the building, including paying guests, setting up checkpoints that resemble those at airline concourse entrances.

The Secret Service’s monopoly on the hotel’s highest floors has meant the Westin had to boot guests with previous reservations out of their executive-level rooms.

Secret Service agents are also monopolizing hotel elevators long before the Obamas need them, added the staffer, who identified himself as a member of the concierge staff and spoke English during a phone call on Friday.

‘Many of them are Asian, too, or Americans who are Asian, so you know our guests don’t understand.’

‘We can’t wait for this to be over, to tell you the truth,’ he said in a sudden hush. ‘We entertain many important people here, but this has been, I think, very different.’

A spokesperson for Mrs. Obama declined to comment.

A spokesman for Starwood Hotels, which owns the Westin chain, referred questions to Secret Service.

Ordinary Chinese who have met the American first lady have described her in media reports as approachable and friendly, and the hotel staffer agreed.

‘The first lady is gracious, and the girls are lovely,’ he said.

The Westin employee and another colleague said Sasha and Malia Obama have been on their best behavior because Mrs. Robinson has kept them on a short leash.

They emphasized that they have had a disappointing experience with the protection detail that accompanies Mrs. Obama everywhere.

Wealthy hotel guests bumped from their reserved rooms into other less-luxurious accommodations have inundated the front desk with complaints.

As a condition of the first lady staying at the Westin, the Secret Service blocked off all the rooms near the presidential suite..

The Washington Times reported Thursday that an entourage of about 70 people is accompanying the guests of honor to China at taxpayer expense.

The White House has taken pains to frame Mrs. Obama’s trip as a cultural journey rather than a political one, but taxpayers are paying through the nose for it nonetheless.

China News Service described the first lady on Friday as ‘Mrs Diplomatic,’ and the Xinhua news agency dubbed the trip ‘an unprecedented and historical moment in the chapter of China–U.S. relations.’

The trip won’t come cheap.

Judicial Watch, a watchdog group in Washington, D.C., reports that it cost more than $11 million for President and Mrs. Obama to travel to Africa for Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in December.

The first couple were in Africa for less than 13 hours.

The Obamas’ 2013 visit to Africa, a longer affair, reportedly cost Americans more than $100 million.

The Washington Times reported Thursday that an entourage of about 70 people is accompanying the guests of honor to China at taxpayer expense.

'Mrs. Diplomat': Chinese President Xi Jinping joined in Friday for events that were supposed to include just Mrs. Obama and Chinese first lady Peng Liyuan. The White House has insisted that the trip is a cultural exchange and not a political mission, however.

The White House has taken pains to frame Mrs. Obama’s trip as a cultural journey rather than a political one, but taxpayers are paying through the nose for it nonetheless.

China News Service described the first lady on Friday as ‘Mrs Diplomatic,’ and the Xinhua news agency dubbed the trip ‘an unprecedented and historical moment in the chapter of China–U.S. relations.’

The trip won’t come cheap.

Judicial Watch, a watchdog group in Washington, D.C., reports that it cost more than $11 million for President and Mrs. Obama to travel to Africa for Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in December.

The first couple were in Africa for less than 13 hours.

The Obamas’ 2013 visit to Africa, a longer affair, reportedly cost Americans more than $100 million.
