  • Unraveling Benghazi Bungle About More Than Politics

    The Obama Administration’s attitude toward the 9/11/12 attack on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya is summarized in one phrase:“Dude, this was two years ago.” This was the disgracefully glib response former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor gave to FOX News after being pressed on his role in editing talking points to help the Obama Administration save face, rather than address questions surrounding the most serious attack on an American diplomatic mission since the takeover of the U.S. embassy compound in Tehran in 1979. Like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who bellowed, “What difference, at this point,...

    Patients will technically be able to receive medication as of Jan. 3, but the state still has months to go before full legalization and implementation of the medical marijuana law. Patients in Florida suffering from a variety of ailments will technically be eligible to use legal medical marijuana as a form of treatment on Tuesday. However, the state still has months to go before dispensary rules and regulations must be officially implemented, which could potentially leave patients without access to medical cannabis for quite some time. On Election Day, 71 percent of voters approved Florida’s Amendment 2, a measure legalizing...

    Win Butler wants the United States to Wake Up, but ESPN wasn't about to allow him the platform for his alarm. The frontman of Arcade Fire, a band that hails from Canada, was named the Celebrity Game MVP in Toronto on Friday night, racking up 15 points and 14 rebounds for team Drake in a game some people actually watched. But Butler tried to keep eyes and ears on him after the performance, pivoting an interview with ESPN's Sage Steele into a plea for health-care reform in the United States

    Former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor addressed Fox News Special Report host Bret Baier as "dude" Thursday and said he could hardly remember how he helped change the Benghazi talking points because it was "two years ago." The previously unreleased White House emails this week revealed a coordinated attempt to protect President Barack Obama during the 2012 election campaign and place the blame for the terrorist attack on the anti-Islamic YouTube video and not a "broader failure of policy." Baier pressed Vietor on his role in changing the talking points by adding a line about the administration warning the...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie lashed out at Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Tuesday for missing votes in the Senate. Speaking at a town-hall event in Iowa, Christie singled out Rubio for missing a vote on the $1.8 trillion end-of-the-year spending bill and tax package. Rubio said he opposed the bill and late in the process threatened to block it, but ultimately missed the vote because he was campaigning for president.

    Last week, former National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor admitted to Fox News’s Bret Baer that President Barack Obama was not in the White House situation room on the night of September 11, 2012. That was the night -- "Dude, this was like two years ago” -- in which Islamic terrorists killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Benghazi.

    "In debates rife with confrontation and verbal barbs, there was one thing that wasn't a big surprise: Nobody was speaking above a high school level." "And at least one front-runner was in elementary school territory. That's according to a Big Crunch analysis of the first three Republican debates, looking at the candidates' speech patterns — and matching to them an appropriate school-grade level. We based our analysis on the well-known Flesch-Kincaid readability test. (Some readers might remember playing with this feature on Microsoft Word when writing up school reports — to see how highbrow their writing was.)"

    The light of truth is starting to shine through the narrative that is known as the Bowe Bergdahl capture. In a Fox News exclusive interview with former CIA operative “Duane ‘Dewey’ Clarridge, the agent revealed that Bowe Bergdahl was high on hashish with Afghan soldiers before being captured by nomads and subsequently sold to the Taliban aligned Haqqani network. The revelation brings to light the true circumstances of Bergdahl’s disappearance Clarridge established a network of local informants in an attempt to secure the release of a Western journalist. The CIA learned from the informants that an American soldier and his...

    In an article chock full of "could" and computer model projections, the San Jose Mercury News speculates in the headline, "Climate change may flatten Santa Cruz's famed surfing waves." Key word is "may" since it also may not. However, this doesn't prevent reporter James Urton from engaging in extreme conjecture about surf conditions in a century while computer model projections are often unable to correctly project the weather for the next day. Let us now join Urton in the midst of his Chicken Little mode concerning the future of Santa Cruz surfing:

    “It’s amazing what $35 can do,” Healy said. “As I’ve been saying, if we only spent $75, $80, we might’ve won the race.” Republican Allan Fung came in second with 36%, and Democrat Gina Raimondo won with 40%, Mediaite reports. This time he ran as a member of the Moderate Party after its candidate was forced to drop out. Healey says that his success shows that people are sick of all the money being spent in elections.

    The ashes were being kept in a plastic box, not a metal urn.Vietnam War veteran Phillip McMullen likely saw some bad things during his time in the service, but what he saw when returned to his Alabama home ranks right up there. McMullen came back to his Citronelle residence after visiting some friends out of town and discovered that his home had been burglarized. The gun safe at McMullen's house had been damaged, but it wasn't broken into. The same could not be said for the plastic box which held his deceased wife's ashes. "They even took my wife's ashes...

    WASHINGTON — On Saturday, President Obama stood with the parents of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in the White House Rose Garden — a voluntary media event — to announce the deal that exchanged five Taliban detainees for Bergdahl’s release. Days later, that feel-good event stands in contrast to the deal’s reception, with reports from soldiers he served with that Bergdahl may have been a deserter, and lawmakers demanding to know why the administration did not notify Congress of the deal in advance. Tommy Vietor, one of Obama’s former top aides, said Tuesday the goal of Saturday’s event was to get in...

    As she prepares to answer questions about the Benghazi attacks of 2012, Hillary Clinton has hired former Obama aide Tommy Vietor to help with the roll out of her new book. Earlier this month, Vietor, a former Obama administration national security spokesman, appeared on Fox News to defend the administration’s response to the attacks and famously said to anchor Bret Baier: “Dude, this was like two years ago.” Here is the transcript from that exchange: BAIER: Did you also change ‘attacks’ to ‘demonstrations’ in the talking points? VIETOR: Maybe. I don’t really remember. BAIER: You don’t remember? VIETOR: Dude, this...

    Dispatcher tells him she doesn't have a clueA man in Washington County called 911 to see where he could get some marijuana. The Washington County dispatch center released the May 1 call as part of its "You called 911 for that?!" campaign. The dispatch agency also posted the call on its Facebook page. "This is just one of many examples of what you shouldn't be calling 9-1-1 for," the agency wrote on Facebook. During the call, the man asks the dispatcher where he could buy some marijuana. The dispatcher tells him she doesn't have a clue. The call ends. The...
  • FBI says no connection between belated photo release and Benghazi media coverage

    White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, deflecting criticism over the Libya terror attack, argued Wednesday that "Benghazi happened a long time ago." But despite the nearly eight months that have elapsed since then, the FBI is only now producing photos of individuals they'd like to bring in for questioning. The release of the grainy images comes as the House plans another Benghazi hearing next week. It also comes after Fox News reported that U.S. officials have identified the mastermind of the attack, who according to sources is walking free in Libya. Coincidence? Yes, according to the FBI.
  • C-Span’s Benghazi Omerta Day 2.

    Omerta - A rule or code that prohibits speaking or divulging information about certain activities, especially the activities of a criminal organization. That old mafia term certainly applies to the general media blackout of all things that could impossibly affect the public aura of Obama. I haven’t bothered to determine when the House of Representatives last announced the formation of a special committee to investigate the executive branch, but it is without question a newsworthy event, unless one is part of the outer ring of Obama’s defense, part of the hometown political cabal that will defend him at all costs....
