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 It has been followed by myriad other gates affecting both parties but has never been superseded.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.)

A visual depiction of the Obama Administration's complicity in Benghazigate.
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...
This is a really great article. Read it.
I am trying to post it on Facebook. For some reason it won’t go. I will try on a real computer.
The mouthpiece media is our enemy. We have social media! We MUST go around the mouthpiece media. It’s our only hope. Tweet out this article and post it on Facebook.
Wait, maybe that's what funds all those daycare centers the idiot Sen. Patty Murray talked about regarding Osama and al Qaeda after 9/11/01.
The whole Obama/Dem administration are idiots.
Thanks for the link
Thanks for your efforts. Hopefully someone will pick it up and post it, I’ve never posted to FB.
There are whole lotta things worse than Watergate with these jokers
This IS what they should do ... but they are all off campaigning and none of them have the courage to do this. Off doing THEIR business (getting re-elected) as opposed to the people’s business and that of the country. America is in DIRE straits .... here at home and abroad.
I just used the Recommend button to FB and it worked OK. I requested comments from my Obama supporting Friends. I'm not holding my breath.
Apparently you are not aware of what our GIRLY-GUY, WUSS, RINO, A-HOLE, "Weaper of the House" has said: He refuses to hold hearings and has stated that it is better to let the Feebs investigate this matter.
Right! And we can expect an FBI report/results to be forthcoming on Nov 7th.
So, as we know Dingy Harry and the Senate won't touch this and Bone-er is "punting" a GOLDEN opty we are left as usual, holding the dirty end of the stick!
The Obama group is covering up four, repeat four, murders.
They will find somebody to take the fall like they did for
Holder with Fast & Furious. Of course, it is really the
MSM who gets the credit.
Romney could really rally the public if he were to really
come down strong on this Obama cover up & lying.
No soldiers and Obama running
MSM just can’t see
Those left without help coming
Four dead in Benghazi
Hillary spinning contains no truth
Democrat’s terrorism it can’t be
Obama wants voters in the booth
Four dead in Benghazi
FOUR DEAD IN BENGHAZI
“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.”
more work of and results of the amateur in the WH
Associated Press journalism defines American Newspeak. In Newspeak, people who prove they are extremely subjective (by claiming to actually be objective, when no one can be certain of his own objectivity) are called objective.
Courageous and independent is what what a reporter is called precisely because he or she is neither courageous nor independent of the Associated Press consensus.
It may have been politically unsafe as well!
Seems the administrations little ploy of let the FBI investigate and on Nov. 7 we will hear what they had to say,didn't pass mustard for either the bent axel or Val babe Jarrett the regime decision makers.
I guess they were worried that the FBI might find out everything we already know. That terrorists planned and executed the attack and had help inside the Libyan govt. if not the embassy staff itself.
Not wanting that kind of stuff to get out or get leaked by a wayward FBI agent they might not be able to control all of a sudden it was too dangerous for our delicate FBI guys to investigate. Yeah sure Dave.
While I have the utmost respect for the FBI as probably the world’s foremost law enforcement agency, I’m having a tough time conceptualizing the Bureau descending on Benghazi, with their fleet of SWAT vans, helo support, and hundreds of heavily armed agents, all wearing their FBI-emblazoned jackets. I hope that they’d have a couple dozen native Arabic linguists with them to help them infiltrate the souqs.
To begin with the FBI was brought in for one and only one reason. To give the regime plausible denyability. They wanted to be able to say,no comment, the FBI is investigating,now back to the 47%. That's all this ever was. The fact that they figured out that this entire fiasco was so easy to figure,we have already done so, that it would never have lasted until Nov.7 as was the plan explains why the FBI is still in Tripoli and will never go to Benghazi since its too dangerous. More accurately too politically dangerous.
Where is the DBM in all this,waiting for the signal to get back to the 47%,remember its all political for the commies.
Reminds me of a scene from the movie, “Waterworld” where the captain of the ship (the Exxon Valdez) spreads out cases of cigarettes and spam to his passengers so they will get motivated.
Obamas “free stuff” will be his downfall more so than this terrorist attack, because nobody gives a dam plus all the agencies that could have or should be prosecuting Obama has been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood.
This is the tallying cry across America, taking the lead or the gold, most are taking the gold it appears.
But it won’t last long.
They have a saying, “Give a bear a cookie and he will ask for a glass of milk”
Understand. Benghazi is like persistent fly at a picnic.
Exactly and if you want to ramp things up yet another notch you go here:
But then the DBM would much rather talk about third parties as they are on c-spam or anything else but yet another obama foreign policy disaster in the makings we speak.
Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi!
I sure hope that Ryan brings it up in the debate tonight!
It is such a disgrace that we leave our embassies in Arab states devoid of all protection.
Obama caves in to the Islamists every time!
