When you truly look at liberalism there is very little actual intelligence, rather we have a large circle of wagons of people all covering for each other>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Its much worse, our liberal leftists are like grasshoppers who morph into locusts swarms.They are so convinced of their righteousness that they actually become fascists.
Just read this , its very good:
UGH. That would be tragic!
I suspect them to demand a holiday of its own, if this horrid “immigration reform” ever passes.
Although it has been in the public forum before, I have heard thru somewhat reliable sources here inside the beltway that Ham ordered the launch of the response forces, but was told to stand down at the highest levels.
“Tragic” ain’t the term I’m using.
...Last Straw comes to my mind.
Yes but two points. The New London taking was by the government, not the neighbor; and the court worked this magic by redefining "for public use" to include any activity that generates tax revenue for the government. Eminent domain works against the owner if he (the owner) has the property by deed, or by adverse possession. Adverse possession can defeat a deed. Sort of resembles paper-scissors-rock, except the government always wins.
Your crank of a neighbor is following the rules, and the department of land isn't about to waste its time checking him, other than a review of the surveyor's report. The letter from the town is "step one" of the legal process. I suspect your neighbor intends to sue, and has to go through the town in order to perfect his right to sue.
Keep the faith! You bring lots of hope and positive energy to more people than you realize.
Well it appears that is that the Chief Financial Officer of the Dept of State told Congress that funding wasn't the problem.
I'd start with a pancake.
Coulter ( I KNOW - we supposed to hate her) hammered on Geraldo real good on that last evening.
Which is extra rich. I recall the State Dept spinning that exact thing, then having to walk it back when the facts of the matter were shown. So they count on the ignorance of the sheeple, and the complicity of the hack media to shamelessly repeat the lie, and we have to re-refute their lie. It's a good example of how they play the game. Truth be damned because there are no consequences.
I think that’s pretty well known. Don’t have a link handy but I recall reading it as well.As i recall several higher ups in the various services tried to help and were all but drummed out of the service for their efforts.
Here’s a better link.
I saw that Annie was pretty relentless!! Whoreraldo keeps pretending to be conservative and keeps coming up really short time after time.
He needs to be subpoenaed as well.
Those responsible for this disaster need to be held responsible. We can start with the "man" at the top, who after a brief initial meeting shortly after it started ("just take care of it") was never heard from again until his Rose Garden Speech and Las Vegas fund raiser the next day. Where was he during those critical nine hours? What was he doing? Why was he totally and willingly out of the loop? Why did he deliberately cover this up?
This goes beyond "shameful". At the very least it is criminal negligence and a deliberate coverup at the very highest levels.
He's so busy looking out for himself, he ain't got a side.
9:40 p.m. (3:40 p.m. ET): Gunfire and an explosion are heard. A TOC agent sees dozens of armed people over security camera flowing through a pedestrian gate at the compound's main entrance. It is not clear how the gate was opened.
The agent hits the alarm and alerts the CIA security team in the nearby annex and the Libyan 17th of February Brigade, one of several powerful militias serving as a de facto security presence in Benghazi. The embassy in Tripoli and the State Dept. command center were also alerted.
State Dept. Diplomatic Security follows events in real time on a listen-only, audio-only feed, according to testimony of Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant director for international programs, given before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Oct 10.
Around 10 p.m. (4 p.m. ET): At the compound, several DS agents leave to get tactical gear from Building B. One stays in Building C with Ambassador Stevens and Information Officer Sean Smith. The mob sets fire to the 17th of February Brigade barracks on site.
DS agent Scott Strickland moves Stevens and Smith to the closest area "safe haven" in Building C.
The other agents, currently in Building B and the TOC come under attack.
The attackers gets into Building C, lights furniture on fire, then the building's exterior. Stevens, Smith and Agent Strickland move to the bathroom and lay on floor but decide to leave safe haven after being overcome by smoke.
Strickland goes out an emergency escape window. Stevens and Smith do not follow. Strickland returns several times but can't find them in the overwhelming smoke. He goes up to the roof and radios the other agents.
Three agents return to Building C via armored vehicle. They search and find Smith's body, but not Stevens.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is told of the incident "shortly after it began at 4 p.m.," CBS News' Margaret Brennan reported Sept. 14. Clinton spoke to the Libyan President Mohammed Magariaf to "enlist his full support."
Meanwhile, the U.S. military began moving an unarmed drone over Benghazi to provide real-time intelligence to the CIA team on the ground. It would take roughly an hour to arrive.
10:05 p.m. (4:05 p.m. ET): An alert from the State Department Operations Center is issued to a number of government and intelligence agencies, including the White House Situation Room, the office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the FBI. "US Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack" -- "approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well. Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four COM (Chief of Mission/embassy) personnel are in the compound safe haven."
10:25 p.m. (4:25 p.m. ET): A six-member CIA team arrives from the annex with 40 to 60 members of 17th of February Brigade. The team removes Smith's body.
Around 10:30 p.m. (4:30 p.m. ET): Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and his top military adviser learn of the incident.
10:54 p.m. (4:54 p.m. ET): An alert from the State Dept. Operations Center: "the firing... in Benghazi has stopped. A response team is on site attempting to locate COM personnel."
11 p.m. (5 p.m. ET): Just ahead of the weekly meeting with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey, White House National Security Advisor Tom Donilon tells President Obama of the attack and the fire at the main villa. The president and those officials discuss possible responses to the situation.
After watching this fox report, what else I want to know if there was a video camera on the vehicle they drove back to the annex?
