ANTIQUE MEDIA: You figured out yet that everything White House told you about Benghazi was a lie?
Doug Ross Journal ^ | September 24, 2012 | Doug Ross

Posted on 09/24/2012 1:03:48 PM PDT by opentalk

Stephen Hayes does the rundown, which can be summarized as follows:

• Ambassador Susan Rice lied on five Sunday talk shows last week, saying that the attack that killed Ambassador Stevens was not "premeditated or preplanned".

• Ambassador Susan Rice also lied about Stevens' security, stating that " two of the four Americans who were killed were there providing security."

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney lied that the attacks had nothing to do with the anniversary of 9/11.

• Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied as well, indicating that an anti-Islamic film was the cause of the non-existent protests in Benghazi

• Hillary's State Department lied; first downplaying the possibility of 9/11 terror attacks and then scrubbing its website to remove its horrific mistake

• Clinton also lied to Senate Republicans, claiming they did not have details of the terror attacks when they were instead revealing those details to The New York Times

• President Barack Obama also lied, echoing the same falsehoods for days on end

The facts: There was no protest in Benghazi. There was only a planned, premeditated terror attack on the U.S. consulate. The attack was initiated on the anniversary of 9/11. And two heroic ex-Navy SEALs --who were not part of Ambassador Stevens' security team --jumped into the fray and died protecting him.

This is a scandal. And even Sixties media is going to have to cover it.

the media think of themselves as in touch and educated with common sense but these last few years they have proven to be idiots, who worship a guy and a party which lies all the time and takes the American people for granted for their personal gain and power.

If they have no figured all of this out yet then they never will

You figured out yet that bloggers re-write or steal those same lies?

If I re-worded an MSM story and slanted it another way would that make it credible?

Or would that make me a scumsucking blogpimp?

That’s definitely scandalous. Part B of the scandal is that the complicit media ate it up readily without questioning it at all.

Oh come on, there is no scandal here. It’s just a ‘bump in the road’ to peace. The media is already preparing to spin those ‘unfortunate choice of words’. And anyway, Mitt Romney said that nearly half of all Americans are looking for a free ride - the bastard!

If Romney is the one who supposedly has trouble with female voters, then how are the SOCCER MOMS going to react to all this? They were supposed to be a voter block that put W over the edge with Kerry.

Does Zero make soccer moms feel more secure about their children’s future by apologizing for America?

How do you think Romney’s ‘gaffe’ in calling out Zero on apologizing was viewed by the soccer moms?

BHO and his crew are just continuing a long progressive tradition: the truth is a lie yet to be discovered.

Traitorbama and his thugs will lie because it doesn't matter.

His supporters will vote for him no matter what. Conservatives won't vote for Traitorbama even if he told the truth.

And if any conservatives point out Traitorbama's lies, the fifth-column media will cover for him so he can tell another lie to the gullible and non-sentient "undecided voters."

The rat media commits lies of commission and omission. They’ve got all the lies covered...over, under, around and through; nothing but lies.

These are Marxists-Leninists we are dealing with...in other words socialists and their propagandists. How can you tell? They lie. The lie is the weapon used most often in the criminal’s arsenal.

The truth of the matter is LIBERALISM IS A LIE. Once the lie is exposed it collaspes faster than AL GORE can save a drowning polar bear when the cameras are turn on.

My guess when it is all over, someone will track down the financing for the movie trailer and discover it was provided by the Democrats, Axelrod specifically, as a September surprise for the opposition and a reason to demand that the Food Stamp President be re-elected. Notice how the parolee has been hustled off to safety in an undisclosed location where he can be questioned.

Under the Marxist-Leninist dialectic, if you tell what we perceive as a lie, but it furthers the Marxist-Leninist agenda, then it is not a lie - it is the Marxist-Leninist truth!

I read this interesting insight back in the ‘50s, in the book, “You Can Trust The Communists...To Be Communists”. By Fred Schwarz, as subsequent investigation has borne out.

I was a young kid when I read that, but it made an indelible impression.

Anyway, apparently that's the crutch they use today.

Almost convincing!

Almost...

Not just a bump in the road

We don't need no indoctrination.
We don't need no thoughts controlled.
No dark sarcasm from main stream media.

Main stream media leave THOSE PEOPLE ALONE.

Hey Media ! LEAVE THE PEOPLE ALONE. !

All in all we are not a, bump in the road.

All in all were not just a, bump in the road.

Simply put, Obama fell asleep while on duty. If the MSM decided to report that the embassy had NO PROTECTION, Ambassador Stevens felt targeted, and credible sources warned the administration of a possible attack three days prior to the attack, the anger among Americans would explode. Obama can’t make it to his morning intel briefings, yet has time to golf and campaign? That wouldn’t go over too well, particularly when Americans are feeling surly because of a prolonged economic “malaise”.

There is one other elephant in the room that Team Obama desperately don’t want to be broached: Bush kept us safe.

”Sixties media” is an improvement over some others, but there is really only one name for the entity you are designating. It is - say it loud, say it proud - Associated Press Journalism.

All of the major journalism outlets are members of the associated press, they all agree that all are “objective.” And, as we all know, if you have heard or read one of them, you have heard or read them all. Their slant on the news is uniform - uniformly against the suppliers of food, clothing, shelter, etc. And all give positive labels to anyone else who is critical of the suppliers of necessities, and negative labels to the defenders of suppliers.

This debacle points out clearly that the idiots in this administration do not understand the Middle East. They don’t understand Islamists. They don’t understand basic international relations.

They are like the substitute referees in the NFL, except the refs only make bad calls on Sundays.

I posted this on another thread but maybe this is a better spot. I have read several articles that talk about 20 to 35 other people who were in the embassy compound that night and who were successfully rescued. Where are those people? Who rescued them? Why were the two top officials there the only ones killed? Seems like I also read something the day after the attack that talks about the “rescue mission” and how 2 more lives were lost, which I assume would have been the seals. Nothing about this makes common sense. Sure seems like this could have been a hostage attempt on the ambassador. Maybe with a rescue that went wrong. Would make sense if they wanted to trade Stevens for the Blind Sheik.
