Posted on 09/29/2012 11:02:01 AM PDT by jazusamo
For over forty years now, the Watergate scandal the June 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters and the subsequent cover-up by the Nixon administration has been the sine qua non of American political malfeasance. It has been followed by myriad other gates affecting both parties but has never been superseded.
Benghazi or Benghazigate, as some call it, is worse. Far worse. Incomparably worse.
Watergate caught numerous public officials lying, including the president of the United States, but Benghazigate has all that and more.
It involves the terrorist murder (not an electorally irrelevant burglary) of government officials, their reckless endangerment, the undermining of the Bill of Rights and free speech by our own administration in response to Islamist threats, and, ultimately, the complicity of that same administration, consciously or unconsciously, in the downfall of Western civilization.
Meanwhile, the mainstream media function as their more-than-willing accomplices in this downfall, in essence as Obamas court eunuchs.
Hear me out.
But first a word from Democratic pollster Pat Caddell, who evidently feels the same way:
First of all, weve had 9 days of lies. If a president of either party had had a terrorist incident and gotten on an airplane [after remarks] and flown off to a fundraiser in Las Vegas, they would have been crucified it should have been, should have been, the equivalent, for Barack Obama, of George Bushs flying over Katrina moment. But nothing was said at all. Nothing will be said. [...] It is [unacceptable] to specifically decide that you will not tell the American people information they have a right to know. [The MSM] has made themselves the enemy of the American people. It is a threat to the very future of the country; weve crossed a new and frightening line on the slippery slope, and it needs to be talked about. (h/t: The Anchoress)
Not to mention Democratic pundit Kirsten Powers :
There are so many unanswered questions, not just about Libya, but also about Cairo. Who is it that Rice thinks widely disseminated this movie? Surely she cant believe that the Egyptian Coptic Christian who made the video had the capacity or even desire to put it in the hands of the people who did the inciting. Also, has the administration noticed that the mob in Cairo, so spontaneously upset about the video, just happened to be carrying an Islamist flag to hoist over our embassy? On 9/11. What a massive coincidence . They say curiosity killed the cat. In this case, lack of curiosity on the part of the American media very well may kill more Americans. (h/t: Hot Air )
And so on. Theres more at both of these links. Watergate is childs play by comparison.
What really is going on here? Terrorism and rioting broke out all over the Muslim world on 9/11. What caused it? We thought Osama bin Laden was supposed to be dead. But apparently the assassination of bin Laden meant little. Actually, only an idiot would think otherwise.
(Obama, Obama, we are all Osama! Evidently.)
Obviously, an ideology is at play a gigantic, uncompromising ideology that our government refuses to confront or even recognize. And our media, with a few exceptions, barely looks at it either. Nevertheless, a direct line exists from the denial of Islamic influence in the Ft. Hood massacre (even though Major Hasan yelled Allahu Akbar in the process of killing or maiming forty-two of his fellow soldiers) and what occurred in Benghazi, Cairo, and elsewhere.
Our government, more than ever under Obama, has never named our enemy, making it all the more likely that enemy will engulf us. Indeed, as has been described here at PJ Media, government directives exist to avoid imputation of Islamic or even Islamist terror motivation by the State Department, Defense Department, or the FBI.
You could say that is appeasement. Unfortunately, I am beginning to think it is more than that. It is, on the part of some, intentional.
We can trace that back, among other places, to Obamas famous Cairo speech. That speech was naïve, yes, but even more it was subversive in its intentions. Obama wanted to make outreach to and common cause with an Islamic culture that is misogynistic, homophobic, and in favor of the ascendancy of religious Sharia law over state law across a globe ruled by an Islamic caliphate in other words, against the very fabric of everything on which this country was founded, not to mention Western civilization, the Enlightenment, etc.
Think of that, my fellow Americans. That is what Barack Obama did on our behalf and the media lapped up unquestioningly.
Liberals, most of all, you would think would abhor this. But they dont. They have been brainwashed out of their ideology that is, assuming they ever had one.
And that, of course, is the work our media. They say Islam is a shame culture, but we have become one too. Our media is too ashamed to admit they made a mistake about Barack Obama, so ashamed they are willing to look the other way at every occasion.
So what do we do if, as Pat Caddell says, channeling Ibsen, the MSM is the new enemy of the people? How do we respond? Well, we yell and scream as loud as we can, for one thing. Thats what Im attempting to do now.
In his 1978 book The Fate of Empires and the Search for Survival, Sir John Glubb describes the life cycle of empires in seven stages. Part 7 is The age of decline and collapse. I dont want to think weve reached that point. Im going all in at least for a few more weeks to try and disrupt the message.
So say it loud and say it proud: Benghazi worse than Watergate! (Maybe our countrymen will hear us.)

Good luck with getting the media to cover it.
Those dirtbags pissed on the 1st Amendment while running from terrorism.
To me “Fast & Furious: gate is worse.
>> Pat Caddell and Kirsten Powers are at least speaking out.
Cuz they weren’t sucked into the evil vortex of Leftwing media.
Let’s see Benghazi people died
Let’s see Watergate no one died
Even the headline premise statement is just stupid
If anyone thinks that Obama is going to resign for this — forget it.
Resignation and honor are not dhimmicrap things.
Certainly arguable. I think we all agree that both of these incidents were several orders of magnitude worse than Watergate. Where are all the courageous and independent investigative reporters from the prestige media? The New York Times and the rest cant go out of business soon enough for me.
They certainly did and it was and still is sickening.
In this case the media have circled their wagons and are determined to protect Obama and secure his reelection at all costs. You will hear very little about this foreign policy disaster anywhere except on Fox News. Obama has promised to deliver the Left to its long-desired socialist Utopia.
Agree with Caddell. No lives were lost over Watergate. I don’t believe Nixon even knew about the planning of the break-in. He put too much trust in his underlings.
A good book to read about it is Gordon Liddy’s “Will”, wherein he takes full responsibiliy for the idiotic major FUBO by him and his “Cubans.”
Liddy was and is a stand up guy, I recently read that he retired from his radio show.
NOw, realize how the media creates, yes, CREATES our reality. Bigger than Watergate? Good luck spreading the word over to the next barstool. Everything you know about the present and recent, living history has been fed to you like baby food by the media. Holocaust? Somebody could have decided that it didn’t happen, and its mention would not get your reaction, just like a mention of numerous Communist holocaust (for lack of a better word) like the Ukraine, like Cambodia, gets only yawns.) We are spoonfed our views of the world, folks. End of rant, back to ignoring Cuba and North Korea, and getting our panties in a wad ‘coz some Hindu named his store after a long dead democratically elected dictator.
If Obama wins the election (God forbid), impeachment proceedings should begin the very next day.
Actually, only an idiot would think otherwise.
That would be the muslim occupying the Oval Office...
