Twitter in the tank for Obama on Benghazi

Posted on 10/29/2012 8:48:43 AM PDT by klkitchens66

As most of you know, Twitter "trends" hot hashtag topics to alert its users of current themes of discussion.

What has come to light recently is that they have blocked hashtags relating ot the Benghazi Coverup. It was discovered that the viral #BenghaziGate tag was being blocked from Trend determination as was #Benghazi. Conservatives early this morning shifted to the #7HoursInHell tag to help spread the word that the MSM is hiding... soon enough that hashtag was blocked as well.

To beat them at their own game, conservatives are taking the conversation to the #Forward2012 tag normally used by the Obama campaign. They cannot block that one AND they cannot prevent the ObamaZombies from seeing the discussion either.

In a related censorship note... my image

which has been getting a large amount of play on Twitter and blogs (thank you!) has had several versions pulled from Twitter at the request of the copyright holder. Since the image is mine, I did not pull the image, but since the Obama "flag" was used, it would appear that the campaign was behind the request in spite of it being legal under the "fair use" copyright provision as parody.

"When Obama called the US Navy SEALS to get Osama, they got the job done.

When the US Navy SEALS called Obama for help...

he watched them die."

I was watching it happen last night on Twitter and couldn’t believe it!! We are now using #benghazi and #7hoursofhell.
I started a new hash tag today(with little luck..lol... I only have about 10 followers so far)..anyway it is #showustheorders if you and others would please use it. We need to force Obama to show us the orders he issued that day...ALL OF THEM!!

According to the article - " It was discovered that the viral #BenghaziGate tag was being blocked from Trend determination as was #Benghazi.

Yet, you claim to still be using #7HoursIn Hell and #benghazi. I don't twitter, so what's the deal?Why not just start using #Forward2012 like most everyone else twittering about Benghazigate?

brilliant strategy! Use their own hashtags against them!

Psyops wins...

I don’t Twitter, but this is an excellent strategy to duplicate in internet blogs, Facebook, etc. They’ll get mad, and we’ll get ahead!

Go Romney/Ryan in 2012. And God save our country, protect our military, and bless us once again!

Well this is the first I have heard of the new hash tag and will be glad to use it. No need to get snarky....lol. You obviously don’t use twitter, so why not keep your snark to yourself?

Furthermore, I think it is important to continue to use the other hash tags as well and so do others. I have been seeing the other hash tags all morning.

“Twitter” does not shill for Obama, it’s all the Obama shills who signed up for Twitter accounts that do this.

Part of his deliberate campaign strategy. He got busted hiring an Indian company to create fake Facebook profiles to spread his propaganda, and I don’t doubt the same is occurring here.

Tried to open a twitter account last week, only to find that my e-mail address was already in use (not by me) and that the account had been suspended.

Sent a request for explanation and received a cookie cutter response about why accounts get suspended.....none of the reasons applied to me.

Weird...

Twitter and social meida helped propelled the Arab Spring.

Now mum’s the word. Can’t get truth out to the world.

Got it.

Only Twitter can block the Hashtag trending methodology.

Be careful though, Twitter has deleted accounts in the past on various grounds including “hashtag abuse”. Liberals are against free speech if it hurts Islam or their cult leader Hussein.

I don’t do much Twitter at all but how about #Deserter and/or #POTUSfail? Or #ObamaKillsSEALs.

I don’t know much about Twitter but have read numerous times that the WH has the capability of dominating and engulfing Twitter with their propaganda at any time. True??

My “Cross-Border Authority” commentary has reached up to Market Ticker.

That’s progress. Next stop, the MSM?

The ACTUAL Issue On Benghazi?

Summed up quite nicely right here: (Western Rifle Shooters, full column)

Every SOF officer and ops officer all the way up has this drummed into his head. We can make Obama respond to this question, even if reporters must shout it at him while he’s doing storm cleanup photo ops. If the reporters KNOW enough to ask the quesion.

That’s why I am shouting all over the internet about CBA.

I can’t believe cross-border authority permission is not one of the top discussion points about Benghazi.

That, and who “set him up” by sending him to Benghazi to meet the Turks on 9-11, with them leaving after dark.

And of course, down the road, was the military rescue-in-progress turned back because Obama actually wanted to make sure the consulate was wiped out? Is that why the spooks at the annex were refused permission to travel the under one mile to intervene? That would connect it all together, but for now, the best focus is on Obama either granting or withholding cross-border authority for the rescue.

Feel free to repost these musings of a long-ago SOF officer anywhere you please. Done.

FYI

As per Drudge: FACEBOOK Censors Navy SEALS to Protect Obama on Benghazi...

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/10/30/Facebook-Censors-Navy-SEALS-To-Protect-Obama-on-Benghazi-Gate

“Over the weekend, Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the forces being overrun in Benghazi.”

There are no words....

Here's my modified version of the "meme" image that Facebook is censoring, according to Breitbart. (I added the punctuation-mark bullet holes and "can't hear you" text.)

Save it to your machine and/or post it around.

I just saw your CBA piece at Ann Barnhardt’s site...she is encouraging her readers to spread it around, and is asking them to bring it to the attention of ‘The Blaze’; she wants to “get this in front of Beck’s people, who seem to be the only ones doing any intelligent reportage on this.” (Her ‘God’s Wrath’ piece from a few days back will hit you right between the eyes.)

Bing West was on Greta last night hammering this point but not using the term “cross-border authority.”

He was talking about Obama needing to give an explicit “execute order” for our military forces to cross into Libyan air space, so I think he’s referring to the same thing. Cross-border authority is what we called it from the SEAL perspective in the 1980s.

But Bing West was explicit that the “execute order” must come from Obama, and West thinks Obama is lying. There will be a record of the order, or not.
