    Don’t forget this one, which destroys the Republican argument that Obama was trying to cover up what happended in Benghazi by initially linking it the youtube video: Petraeus says the White House was asked to not initially say it was an act of terror to avoid tipping off the terrorists.

    • Proof

      As I tried to explain to you the other day, before you demonstrated that you had all the intellectual curiosity of a comatose gerbil, Azul/Azulu/Azuleau, was that “what happended (sic) in Benghazi” was comprised of at least three different scandals. Possibly more, now, with additional information trickling out about national security risks and officers who may have been compromised.

      Now that there is a sexual scandal at least tangentially attached to it, perhaps the mainstream media will stop their own comatose gerbil impressions and finally do some investigative journalism?

      • Guest

        Since you appear to lack any capacity for reading comprehension, you would’ve noticed I carefully worded my post so it was limited to one of those scandals: why the administration did not come out immediately and declare it a terrorist attack. That is scandal Fox News and the right wing have been obsessing about. That is the scanda that went up in smoke. What remains is a hollow, baseless conjectural conspiracy theories. Petreaus himself said his resignation was solely concerned with the affair and you have no proof otherwise.

        • Proof

          Azul and his brain cells are soon parted. Even if “Petraeus says the White House was asked to not initially say it was an act of terror”, it does not demonstrate where the incompetent boobs in the White House had to make up any implausible Azul droppings about some obscure video. Or tout it for weeks, or declare it on five different Sunday shows.

          An adult could have said something like: “We are in the process of an investigation. We don’t want to speculate at this point”, instead of creating a narrative (lie, for those of you in Rio Linda) about a demonstration that wasn’t, over a video no one had heard of.

          And because liberals are irony impaired, when asked about his personal knowledge of events, which would require absolutely no investigation at all to uncover the truth, the Bambooozler-in-Chief told us all that there was an “investigation” going on and refused to answer any of those questions.

          See? They know how it’s done, they are just too friggin’ incompetent to it well (unless it embarrasses them personally).

          “That is scandal Fox News and the right wing have been obsessing about.” Since I am arguably part of the “right wing”, I have tried to inform you that far from being “obsessed” over the scandals (plural), I am concerned about the rule of law in this country that Barry Obama seems to have no trouble ignoring whenever it suits his purposes. Again, had you more intellectual curiosity than a comatose gerbil, you might have demonstrated your own reading comprehension, or lack thereof, on a piece I did about the three ( or more) Benghazi scandals, rather than marinate in your own ignorance about what the “right wing” thinks about the matter.

          You can lead Azul to knowledge, but you can’t make him think.

            Yes yes, marvel at my brains cells. Just as the peasants would flock to the street to marvel at the riches of a new aristrocrat arriving in town, the ‘have-nots’ have a natural fascination about what the ‘haves’ have.

            You seem to have a mistaken impressionthat the causes of event are mutually exclusive. At the time, “The CIA and other intelligence analysts have settled on what amounts to a hybrid view, suggesting that the Cairo protest sparked militants in Libya, who quickly mobilized an assault on U.S. facilities in Benghazi.” If an event apparently had two motivations and you were asked to not tell the other one, that doesn’t mean you can’t say anything at all.

            And yes I do have a sense of irony. For example, when you complain that “An adult could have said something like: “We are in the process of an investigation. We don’t want to speculate at this point” and then lament “the Bambooozler-in-Chief told us all that there was an “investigation” going on and refused to answer any of those questions” when it later became apparent initial accounts of the event may not have been accurate.

            That Kool-aid I am drinking? It’s actually called being objective and reasonable. You should try some, you seem parched.

          • Proof

            *Yawn* Well, at least you’re impressed with yourself.

          • Guest

            You know what’d impress me? If you could provide one shred of evidence that Patraeus’s resignation had anything to do with something other than the affair.

            I mean I do understand where they’re coming from though. Political figures resigning after a sex scandal is unheard of. Except for David Wuu. And Anthony Weiner. And Chris Lee. And Eric Massa. And John Ensign. And Randall Tobias. And Mark Foley. And Robert Livingston. And Robert Packwood. And Buz Lukens. And a lot of others.

          • Proof

            You know what would impress me? If you could read at a second grade or better level. Could you provide me with one shred of evidence that I said anything that implied that “Patraeus’s resignation had anything to do with something other than the affair”, when I didn’t speak of Petraeus’ resignation at all? Do you just enjoy making straw men? Which part of “tangentially attached to it” makes the little gerbils in your head jump to the conclusions that you do? What’s the matter, poseur? Don’t know what a tangent is?? (Look it up!)

            BTW, Petraeus’ resignation does not have anything to do with the fact that you are a moron either. That is merely self evident.

            Even Azul is thought wise if he keeps silent, and discerning
            if he holds his tongue.

          • Guest

            Since he could offer any evidence to support his tin-foil hat theories or in any way counter azulu’s defense to his attack, Proof proceeded to look up quotes about foolishness from people far smarter than he and edit in his political foes in an ironically vain attempt to conceal his own foolishness.

          • Proof

            azul the fool is a numbskull, too. Before his ADD kicked in, we were discussing what Petraeus may or may not have told the White House. Then, the pinheaded azul, stamps his preternaturally tiny feet and demands I give him a “shred of evidence” to prove what I did not assert, namely, anything about Petraeus’ resignation.

            Are you too stupid too admit that while you brought up Petraeus’ resignation, I did not discuss it? And that the subsequent straw man you knocked over was of your own imagining? Or are you going to cling to your utter cluelessness as an excuse for not being to converse like an adult?

            ” in any way counter azulu’s defense”

            Talking about yourself in the third person? Is it because you are clinically insane, an overweening narcissist, or is azul just another sockpuppet of yours? (Or all of the above?)

            Toddle off now, junior, and let the adults talk. And you might want to check your nappies, too. Putting your own tinfoil hat where the sun doesn’t shine isn’t the most absorbent. From the trail you’re leaving here, you’ve evidently sprung a leak.

          • Guest

            Since he could again not offer any evidence to support his tin-foil hat theories or in any way counter azulu’s defense to his attack, Proof proceeded to take the same course of action in the hopes of a different result. Perhaps adding some more more babe of the day blog posts will attract visitors and add credibility his conspiracy theories since hard evidence could not.

          • Proof

            I need not offer any evidence, since I did not put forth any such theory. Perhaps you should listen to the little voices in your head less, since they are obviously as crazy as you? Please show me where I advocated for any conspiracy, other than the little voices in your head conspiring to make you sound like a moron?

            Azul takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in
            expressing his opinion.

I see many so called smart so called intelligent people in charge and the world is falling off a cliff faster than a race car and no one has an answer to stop it that is in charge. It boils down to two opposing views and no middle ground any where to be seen . Some items should not be on any agenda but there they are like daylight is in the morning , things that should have never seen the light of day. The constitution has been shredded and is in danger of being totally destroyed with not a whimper. One side hides the true agenda they have with meaningless tripe while the other side seems to want to be more like them .

      Esau Sells His Birthright

      29 Now Jacob cooked a stew; and Esau came in from the field, and he was weary.

      30 And Esau said to Jacob, “Please feed me with that same red stew, for I am weary.” Therefore his name was called Edom.[a]

      31 But Jacob said, “Sell me your birthright as of this day.”

      32 And Esau said, “Look, I am about to die; so what is this birthright to me?”

      33 Then Jacob said, “Swear to me as of this day.”
      So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob.

      34 And Jacob gave Esau bread and stew of lentils; then he ate and drank, arose, and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.

        We do tend to sellout to easily . Knowing what we have we should never even try to give it up, we can not if we wanted to once bought with a price always bought. It is of the devil this division we have and it will only get worse . As the ones who sold their path to the land of milk and honey for a calf fashioned of gold and were swallowed up on the left side . Not to say the left as today but the bible has references to the left and they are not good ones .

    War on Israel updates:
    Savages Unleashed

    The people of Israel are fighting for their very lives (the IDF has just called up a reported 75,000 troops including reservists). Here’s a glimpse of the war in Southern Israel vis-a-vis Boys Town. This says it all: (thanks to Zucker)

    Our Junior High School Principal, Rabbi David Twersky, has been drafted with an emergency draft. He’s a combat soldier, and we are preparing for a ground effort. Others employees are on standby.

    Our alumnus, Brigadier General Yoav Mordechai, IDF Chief Spokesman, has been working round the clock, you may have seen him in the various media outlets.

    We are currently having a major blood drive on campus, together with Magen David Adom for students and local residents.

    We have opened our doors to 2 schools from the south, one from a moshav near Gedera called BEIT CHILKIYA and the other from Kiryat Malachi where 3 residents died this morning.

    Our graduates are operating the Iron Dome system and we have many generals serving in the HOME FRONT COMMAND that deals with the civilians located in the 25 mile rocket range. Additionally, all of our Air Force alumni that are serving in some capacity over the skies of Gaza right now.

    May we only hear good news and have peace.

    What a way to live.

    • banjo kid

      The world has been blinded and can not see that Israel only wants to live in peace . Can they not see that Palestine is the aggressor and is causing all the trouble. I can see it it is very plain like in your face clear as a bell rings true . The land they have is not any ones to give it belongs to God and he gave it to His chosen people and the chosen was not Islam . I can’t imagine living with rockets flying and no one knows where they will hit , any one would fight back as they are doing but they have more restraint then I would have . God will defeat the land of the due north and He will set up His kingdom and every one will know it was the Lord that did it not us or the Israelis. Glory be to God .

We will not have any fear as will the lost, as there is therefore now no condemnation for believers (Romans 8:1), all Judgment against us was laid upon the Lord.

    Dear friends,

    I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People, a new feature on, and ask for your support. Will you add your name to mine? If this petition gets 25,000 signatures by December 17, 2012, the White House will review it and respond!

    We the People allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the Obama Administration to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets enough support, the Obama Administration will issue an official response.

    You can view and sign the petition here:

    Here’s some more information about this petition:

    Encourage the State of North Dakota to abolish its one-of-a-kind Pharmacy Ownership Law.

    North Dakota is the only state in the country which requires by state statute that a pharmacy be majority-owned (at least 51 percent or more) by a licensed pharmacist in good standing.

    This effectively stifles competition in the state. For example, the much-advertised generic prescription offers are not available in North Dakota because none of the big box stores are allowed to operate their own pharmacies in North Dakota. Not even Walgreens. A drug store company for gosh sakes can’t own a pharmacy in North Dakota!

    This is a ridiculous law which has been in place since 1963. Numerous attempts to repeal it have all failed.

    I believe this law is an unconstitutional restraint of free interstate trade.

    Voter fraud found in Ohio and Florida but nothing will be done about it and no one will go to jail . When the opposing side has access to all the extra ballots it is not hard to tell who will win. It happens in Chicago all the time so get used to it unless we can get a solid voter ID law passed with out the interference of the DOJ and Holder specifically . It may be a good idea to do away with early voting as it is to easy to fill the ballots out in their favor and win. I wonder if any one will notice when 200% of the registered voters vote.

    400 k face jobless benefits stop . when this happens with the entire country what will Obama do then ? when every jobless person is with out means to support them selves what will happen to the golden child then ? Maybe the social security folks will be the first to start living under bridges or there may be a run on selling their homes for pennies on the dollar and still live in them with a little food along side of their small check. It will get bad folks and no one will be immune except the very rich who are smart enough to hold on to enough to make it to the end . The government will run out of money and means to borrow before Obama serves his second term if something does not change. The future looks dim.
