No One to Blame but Ourselves

bridge

 

I’ll be honest with you. I’ve had a very difficult time trying to keep from complaining, bitching, moaning and crying about all the things going wrong in this country. If I started a list, it would turn into a primer for depression and suicide. There’s so much fear mongering, pearl clutching and doomsday prophesying being spread around that I feel like I’m fighting to get out of the clutches of a tar baby. The only people who are happy are the puppet masters. It seems like our nation is that locomotive in the third Back to the Future movie, barreling toward inevitable destruction. The conductor looks a lot like George Soros. The guy feeding the engine is a dead ringer for Saul Alinsky. The metaphors are infinite, and I won’t bore you with too many of them. If you’re reading this, you’ve already demonstrated above average intelligence, a desire to learn, and a capacity for critical thinking. Let’s try to tell you something you didn’t know before you jumped into this article.

You are probably part of the 70% of the US population not happy with the direction this country is going. You’re more than likely sick and tired of political correctness, biased journalism, national apathy and a government so corrupt, bloated and dishonest that the truth is nowhere to be found. You might just want to throw your hands up and give up, because you’re increasingly surrounded by entitlement-minded, low information, low energy, narcissistic, gluttonous, mouth breathing idiots. Who seem to be the only ones willing to vote.

Aye, there’s the rub indeed. If the locomotive that is this nation goes off the cliff, don’t blame the mouth breathers. Don’t blame the Hillary zombies. Don’t blame the Liberal press. Don’t blame the Progressive agenda of almost every college and university. Don’t blame Trump. This is who to blame: OURSELVES.

Oh, so you’re going to vote Republican in November? Good for you, but sorry I’m all out of lollipops. Guess what, my friend. There’s a fellow sitting in your pew every Sunday who isn’t going to vote because his guy wasn’t the nominee, because Trump isn’t a salt and light Christian, because he doesn’t understand that his inaction insures an idiot’s vote goes uncontested. There’s a lady who works in your office that can’t vote for Trump because she believes the lies about Trump being misogynistic. There’s an African-American neighbor who has voted for the Democratic ticket election after election because that’s the political party he’s expected to vote, and because he’s been told that not only is Trump a racist (which he is NOT – provide proof if you believe otherwise), but the entire Republican party is as well (again, NOT true). There’s a Hispanic neighbor also who wouldn’t vote for Trump if he were the last man on the planet because he keeps hearing how Trump hates Hispanics. News flash: Trump doesn’t hate Hispanics. What he and you don’t like is to see our country being overrun by illegal aliens, and eventually terrorists. Keyword: ILLEGAL. For this country work properly, we must adhere to the Rule of Law, plain and simple. There’s that Islamic cashier at the store you frequent who refuses to vote for Trump, afraid if he becomes President it will be open season on Muslims. We just want to know who’s coming into our country; we need to know how to keep the bad guys out while allowing the good guys in. There is your own son who has never voted because he’s under the illusion that all politicians are made from the same crooked cookie cutter. There is your own wife who will not vote because she’s convinced the Electoral College runs the show.

You understand how important this election is. The people in your life do not. Don’t just cry in your corn flakes, brother – educate those in your sphere of influence. Read, study, become informed, know the facts, don’t give up as soon as you hear a lame excuse. Be prepared to face incredible opposition, because the other side is determined to win at all costs. Stoke that fire in your belly and ALSO become determined to win at all costs.

The stakes could not be higher. The train is screaming toward annihilation. If YOU cannot get out the vote, if YOU can’t enlighten your friends and neighbors, if YOU don’t convince the fencesitters in your life to throw the switch, our Constitution will be ripped to shreds. If Hillary Clinton is allowed to become President, brace yourself for a great fall. It’s not enough that you vote, fellow American. You have to, for the sake of our nation, do everything you can to wake up those around you. It will be one of the most difficult things you’ve ever done, but we need all the help we can to pull the brake lever.

Every. Vote. Counts.

Benghazi Unanswered – A Guest Post

Benghazi Unanswered

By Lincoln Adams and Allen Gray

Part I

This is a three-part paper on the still unanswered aspects of the Benghazi attack. In Part 2 available response assets and their subsequent locations and approximate time it would have taken to save four American lives are discussed. The third and final segment provides a look at what tools the Obama Administration used in its manipulation of the media in an effort to shape public opinion, distort truth, misplace blame, and lie.

The total time elapsed between initial reports of gunfire, explosion, a large armed group entering compound and the time Ambassador Stevens’ disappearance was 4 hours and 50 minutes – something doesn’t make any sense here!

The events of September 11, 2012 are still topics of conversation; not just around the water cooler, but in the mainstream media and political circles as well. We are talking about the tragic events in Benghazi, Libya where four Americans were murdered including the first American Ambassador to be assassinated in a terrorist attack since Adolph Dubs (a United States Ambassador to Afghanistan) was assassinated in 1979 during an attempted kidnapping.

The public has endured conflicting reports from the Obama Administration, the media, the Department of State, the CIA, contractors, as well as those pretending to be witnesses. Do the American people want to know the truth, or is this story still in the media for politically driven and long-term campaign reasons? Or has it been continually downplayed for the same?

How would the Obama Administration’s foreign policy have looked if during a campaign where the American public were repeatedly inundated with the claim that “Al Qaeda has been decimated”, and, after publicly supporting and financially aiding the Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Morsi government?

After the attack, various members of the Obama administration began stating the reason for the attack was solely an anti-Muslim video “Innocence of Muslims”. According to multiple web sources however, there were no protesters at the Benghazi consulate prior to the attack. Even though the Obama administration and the Department of State, most notably Hillary Clinton, repeatedly said the attackers joined an angry mob that formed in opposition to the anti-Muslim film that triggered protests in Egypt and elsewhere. However, a State Department briefing on the 9th of October 2012 (nearly a month after the attack) mentions nothing about an angry mob forming outside of the compound. Even Libya’s President Mohammed el-Megarif said this was a pre-planned the attack. The State Department disclosed this fact Oct. 9 — nearly a month after the attack.

The American public, and the world for that matter, were repeatedly told that the Benghazi attack was the result of a low-budget anti-Muslim video which over the period of almost two years has been proven to be incorrect.

According to a January 13, 2014 report by Fox News, General Carter Ham, commander of the U.S. Africa Command during the time of the Benghazi attack, said “The White House knew 15 minutes into the attack that it was the act of terrorists and not a protest over a video” while Testifying under oath before the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation on June 26. Gen. Ham said he learned about the assault within 15 minutes of its initiation through a call he received from the AFRICOM Command Center.

My first call was to General Dempsey, General Dempsey’s office, to say, ‘Hey, I am headed down the hall. I need to see him right away,'” Ham told representatives “I told him what I knew. We immediately walked upstairs to meet with Secretary Panetta.”

Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee Howard McKeon, broached the proverbial million-dollar question of whether senior Obama administration officials had any reason to believe that the assault stemmed from a demonstration over an anti-Islam video produced in America.

Ham went on to state under oath that he, General Dempsey and Secretary Panetta informed the President that it was in fact a terrorist attack.

Several aides to the president and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton repeatedly told the public the murder of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans was the result of a protest gone wrong. The Obama administration ultimately acknowledged that its early narratives on Benghazi were untrue.

The Administration was very slow to acknowledge that this terrorist act was premeditated – going so far as to downplay reports that it was indeed a terrorist attack. President Obama said several times this was an act of terror but never came out and said it was indeed a terrorist attack.

The AFRICOM Commander knew it was a terrorist attack and not the result of a video, likewise so did General Dempsey, and Secretary Panetta who in turn briefed the White House as such. Not only did they know specific details about the attack, they also had nearly five hours to respond and chose not to.

According to the web site FactCheck.org, there was a time span of approximately 4 hours and 50 minutes from the time the initial gunfire and explosions were reported at the front gate of the compound at 3:40pm, to the time Ambassador Stevens disappeared.

The White House knew within minutes of the attack that Ansar al Sharia claimed responsibility and in a span of 4 hours and 50 minutes could neither coordinate a rescue or muster a response beyond that of blaming a low-budget anti-Muslim video.

Part II

In a span of 4 hours and 50 minutes, the Obama administration not only knew the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was under a well-organized and armed attack but, also had American military assets available and with enough time to respond and saved the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, and former Navy Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

The lingering questions are; why blame a video, why was there no armed response when help was available, and was it merely viewed by the White House as an election year inconvenience?

O! What a fall was there, my countrymen, then I, and you, and all of us fell down, whilst bloody treason flourished over us.  —William Shakespeare “Julius Caesar,” Act III, Scene II

First, let’s take a look at the timeline of events that happened that fateful day. (Courtesy of www.factcheck.org) Focusing on the span of time between the initial attack at 3:40pm and the time of Ambassador Stevens’s disappearance at 8:30pm, there is a window of 4 hours and 50 minutes.

  • 3:40 p.m.: (Gunfire and explosion) Main gate camera shows large number of armed men, flowing into the compound.
  • About 4 p.m.: Approximate time of attack; compound began taking fire
  • 4:15 p.m.: Attackers gained access to the building
  • Between 4:15 p.m.-4:45 p.m.: Sean Smith found dead.
  • About 4:45 p.m.: U.S. security personnel try but fail to regain control of the main building.
  • About 5:20 p.m.: U.S. and Libyan security personnel secure the main building.
  • Around 6 p.m.: Consulate under fire for two hours killing two and wounding two U.S. personnel.
  • 6:07 p.m.: State Department emails White House, Pentagon, FBI and other agencies stating Ansar al-Sharia claimed credit for the attack.
  • About 8:30 p.m.: Ambassador Stevens disappears.

Shortly after the attacks in Benghazi, President Obama resorted to near campaign-like rhetoric while all the while contradicting the usual Whitehouse and CIA redacted talking points, alluding to the Benghazi attack as an “act of terror”.—“I want people around the world to hear me: To all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished.”

After the attacks, various members of the Obama administration repeatedly stated the reason for the attack was an anti-Muslim video entitled “Innocence of Muslims” repeatedly saying the attackers joined an angry mob that formed in opposition to the video that in turn triggered protests in Egypt and elsewhere. Surveillance footage from the compound security cameras however showed there were no protesters at the Benghazi consulate prior to the attack.

Still, did President Obama and his administration officials knowingly mislead the public by initially claiming the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi began “spontaneously” in response to an anti-Muslim video?

The Administration was slow to acknowledge that this terrorist act was premeditated – going so far as to downplay reports that it was indeed a terrorist attack. President Obama said several times this was an act of terror but never came out and said it was indeed a terrorist attack.

Matt Olsen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, was the first administration official to call it “a terrorist attack” during a Sept. 19 congressional hearing. “Yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy” Olsen said. “We are looking at indications that individuals involved in the attack may have had connections to Al Qaeda or Al Qaeda’s affiliates; in particular, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.”

Even though President Obama has continually refused to acknowledge that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, many members of his administration have since switched their positions and are beginning to state what many already knew to be true.

According to a January 13, 2014 report by Fox News, General Carter Ham, commander of the U.S. Africa Command during the time of the Benghazi attack, the White House knew 15 minutes into the attack that it was the act of terrorists and not a protest over a video. Testifying under oath before the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation on June 26, Gen. Ham said he learned about the assault within 15 minutes of its initiation through a call he received from the AFRICOM Command Center.

“My first call was to General Dempsey, General Dempsey’s office, to say, ‘Hey, I am headed down the hall. I need to see him right away,'” Ham told representatives “I told him what I knew. We immediately walked upstairs to meet with Secretary Panetta.”

Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee Howard McKeon, broached the proverbial million-dollar question of whether senior Obama administration officials had any reason to believe that the assault stemmed from a demonstration over an anti-Islam video produced in America.

Ham went on to state under oath that he, General Dempsey and Secretary Panetta informed the President that it was in fact a terrorist attack.

Several aides to the president and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton repeatedly told the public the murder of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans was the result of a protest gone wrong. The Obama administration ultimately acknowledged that its early narratives on Benghazi were untrue.

The AFRICOM Commander knew it was a terrorist attack, and likewise so did Gen Dempsey, and Secretary Panetta who in turn briefed the White House as such.

So if the White House knew it was a terrorist attack against Americans, executed on the anniversary of 911 and, while we are still fighting a war on terror; why weren’t assets in country, in the Sinai, in Aviano, Italy, or in Albania mobilized for extraction?

There were military assets from Aviano Air Base in Italy, a 2hr 20min flight away, as well as local US State Department trained Libyans available for activation so why were they not utilized? It is also worth noting that the United States has been deploying troops to the Sinai Peninsula as Multinational Force Observers since the Israel-Egypt Peace treaty was signed in 1979. It is roughly a 2hr 42min flight from Cairo to Tripoli. Any of these assets could have been mobilized if for no other reason than to push back the assault and offer some form of otherwise denied protection.

As recently as October 30, 2013, reports surfaced that there were in fact some assets put into play as a response—two Navy Seals. That’s right, two Navy Seals against a “large group of well-armed men”. All bravado aside, a ratio of 20/2 is apparently what the US State Department deems an appropriate and measured solution to the “what difference does it really make equation” of four American lives in grave danger.

Moreover, U.S. Special Forces assets were conducting training exercises in regions of Europe close to Aviano Air Base in Italy at the time of the attack, and yet again, someone chose not to mobilize them. It is a distance of 420 miles and a time of roughly 2 hours and 20 minutes.

The U.S. State Department felt there were enough security assets in place. In response to why no American military assets were mobilized in response to the attacks, the State Department went so far as to say:

“Security special agents and four members of the Libyan Government security force, which I will henceforth call the 17thFebruary Brigade. It is a militia, a friendly militia, which has basically been deputized by the Libyan Government to serve as our security, our host government security. In addition to all those, there is an additional security force at another U.S. compound two kilometers away. It serves as a rapid reaction force, a quick reaction security team – a quick reaction security team, okay?”

The fact of the matter is the current administration refused to increase security in Benghazi even after being warned repeatedly that things were getting bad. The Department of State had plenty of locally trained assets on the ground but also had ample time to send in a military response. As a result of political assumptions, four Americans were murdered and no one has been brought to justice.

The war in Afghanistan is winding down. Al Qaeda has been decimated.”
~President Barrack Hussein Obama, during a
2012 campaign stop in Wisconsin.

According to anonymous intelligence sources, Ansar al Sharia, the al Nusra front, and al Shabaab, groups that were all involved in attacks on U.S. facilities in September of 2012, are all terrorist groups affiliated with Al Qaeda. Terrorist group Ansar Al Sharia, with the support of Al Qaeda, and as verified by the pre-redacted CIA talking points to Susan Rice, were behind the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

A Pentagon report from August 2012 stated that al Qaeda senior leaders and the group al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) sought to take advantage of the Libyan Revolution to recruit and reinforce their operational capabilities. The report also stated that AQIM had formed sleeper cells that were “probably connected to an al Qaeda underground network in Libya to secure the supply of arms for its ongoing jihadist operations in Algeria and the Sahel.”

The al Qaeda clandestine network is currently in an expansion phase, running training camps and media campaigns on social-media platforms, such as Facebook and YouTube,” the report said. “However it will likely continue to mask its presence under the umbrella of the Libyan Salafist movement, with which it shares a radical ideology and a general intent to implement sharia in Libya and elsewhere.”

According to CNN, the Obama administration not only knew that Ansar al Sharia was responsible but, was also aware that special operations forces were ready, if ordered, to enter Benghazi and capture Ahmed Abu Khattalah, a leading figure in the Ansar Al-Sharia militia. That particular mission however, never materialized allegedly “because there was so much publicity inside Libya and in the western press about the al-Libi capture.”

Within the U.S. intelligence community Ansar al Sharia and Al Qaeda are widely considered to be one and the same. In fact, Osama bin Laden himself called on Al-Qaeda to change its name to Ansar Al-Sharia. The logic was that if the U.S. declared war on Ansar Al-Sharia, it would be declaring war on Sharia law, which would make recruiting terrorists an easier pursuit.

Essam Haddad, the former Chief of Staff to Mohammed Morsi, the deposed Egyptian and Muslim Brotherhood affiliated dictator openly supported by the Obama administration, is the first cousin of Ayman al-Zawahiri a former top Al Qaeda leader. In fact, a report by Catherine Herridge of Fox News includes an official acknowledgment by U.S. officials and the House Intelligence Committee chairman that two suspects in the Benghazi attacks are associated with “Al-Qaeda core”.

According to former Egyptian State Security Intelligence (SSI) officer Ahmed Moussa, the person directly responsible for killing Ambassador Stevens was one Mohsen Al-Azazi. Al-Azazi is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood has known ties to Al Qaeda.

Moussa, speaking on the Tahrir TV channel stated, “Ambassador Stevens was killed in Benghazi, and you know who killed him, the U.S. administration knows who killed him, and you know how he was killed and it was a major strike against the U.S. administration, and all of you. He’s affiliated with Al Qaeda in Libya; his name is Mohsen Al-Azazi”.

If this information is in fact true, it ties the Muslim Brotherhood directly to anti-American terrorism and effectively counters the Obama administration’s policies in dealing with the MB.

Driven by the chaos of Arab Spring violence and a noticeable decrement of U.S. Middle Eastern influence, the Al Qaeda terrorist network remains far from decimated. During the first week of January 2014, al-Qaeda took control of the Iraqi districts of Fallujah and Ramadi, cities that were liberated from jihadi control by American troops during the Iraq War.

Another reason for recent Al Qaeda advances is its adoption of less a top down leadership style and more a bottom-up operational format—a leaderless structure that minimizes the significance of the core Al Qaeda element according to Katherine Zimmerman of the American Enterprise Institute.

The current shift in tactics has afforded the terrorist group the ability to lead a skeletal existence and survive the last 12 years intact; a fact that lies in stark contrast to the “Al Qaeda has been decimated” campaign statement so often heard from President Obama’s’ 2012 re-election campaign further underscored by the January 7th CNN report, ‘Al Qaeda controls more territory than ever in Middle East’.

In as far as why four Americans were abandoned and murdered, why the survivors of the attack are still being secluded from public access, and why General Carter Ham and Admiral Charles M. Gaouette were arbitrarily relieved following the attacks—the seepage of truth emanating from the current and less than transparent administration is adding up to a shameful chapter in American and world history.

The only people who don’t want to disclose the truth are those with something to hide.” ~Barack Obama, August 2010, Long Island, NY

Since the events in Benghazi, Libya has become a terrorist training hub. The Obama administration has blamed a video, failed intelligence, the fog of war, and random acts of violence for the murder of four Americans, has held the survivors in sequestration, and held no one who was in office during the time, accountable.

Throwing fuel onto the fire is the growing belief that the Obama administration blatantly refused to protect Americans in Libya because they did not want to publicly turn on the very government they openly supported the implementation of. In a detailed examination of available video footage from the attack, one participant in the Benghazi attacks is heard to shout out on a video made at the time “Don’t shoot, don’t shoot, Dr. Morsi sent us!” (”Mahadesh, mahadesh yermi, Dr. Morsi ba`atna!”) according to noted middle-eastern experts Walid Shoebat and Cynthia Farahat. “Dr. Morsi,” is a reference to deposed Egyptian President and Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi.

With regards to the above mentioned ‘theory’, it is worth noting that the Obama administration provided Egypt’s Morsi-led Muslim Brotherhood government an emergency cash cocktail of $450 million barely two weeks after the Benghazi attack occurred. Obama also sent some 400 Fort Hood, Texas based troops to Egypt on a “peace keeping mission”. So what was the purpose of this peace keeping mission?

Part III

The attacks in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 were indeed a very dark day in our nation’s history. Four Americans were brutally murdered by terrorists and yet, nobody has been brought to justice for this disgusting act. The American people not only deserve answers as to why this attack happened, but also deserve to see those responsible brought to justice.

As we discussed in Part 2, the White House knew within minutes of the attacks in Benghazi, that Ansar al Sharia claimed responsibility and, in a span of 4 hours and 50 minutes, refused to coordinate a rescue or muster a response beyond that of blaming a low-budget anti-Muslim video. The American taxpaying public was inundated with election year proclamations of Al Qaeda’s demise, repeated assertions that a video was to blame, the absurd idea that the murder of four innocent Americans really did not matter and that the February 17 Brigade was sufficient enough security.

Intelligence findings have found that the White House knew within minutes of the attack, who was conducting the attack and that U.S. military assets were readily available and could have been deployed but were not due to a State Department belief that the “February 17” Brigade was ample enough security and response.

The Senate Intelligence Committee tasked with investigating the Benghazi attack released a comprehensive report finding the tragedy “preventable” and denoting that the administration failed to respond to “ample” advance warnings of security deterioration. The report faulted both the State and Defense departments and also cited the failure of the Obama administration to bring those responsible to justice.

Since the attack on the Benghazi consulate, certain facets of the American media have contributed substantial time and effort to portraying Benghazi as a trumped up Right wing political conspiracy. These political subjugates have even gone as far as to levy personal attacks on those who dared report the truth intended to end professional careers and sadly, even slander the family members of said purveyors of truth engaging in acts of intimidation on their families in the privacy of their own homes.

Who is Media Matters?

MEDIA MATTERS: George Soros funded and Hillary Clinton organized parrot organization run by David Brock.

Through in-depth investigation and analysis, Principle News uncovered information that individual members of the media who once berated the Democratic Party (mainly Hillary Clinton) as well as one hedge fund mogul are now dumping millions of dollars in to smear campaigns against anyone that has something to say about these attacks.

One of these organizations, co-founded by Hillary Clinton and led by David Brock in 2004 is Media Matters for America, a so-called “political rapid-response website” for the Democrats’ Shadow Party operation.

The core pillar of this organization’s existence is not to state corroborated fact but to parrot anti-conservative themes and messages to, in their own words “counter news or commentary presented in the media that is not accurate, reliable, or credible.”

Media Matters, although a non-profit organization, has received substantial donations over the past few years. Most notably their largest donations came from hedge fund multi-billionaire George Soros and former Bill Clinton chief-of-staff John Podesta who helped Brock raise $2 million for this venture. Some of the other beneficiaries of the Soros philanthropic agenda are such entities as: NBC, ABC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Columbia Journalism Review, the Center for Public Integrity, the Center for Investigative Reporting, the Columbia School of Journalism, the National Federation of Community Broadcasters, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, the Committee to Protect Journalists, National Public Radio, The American Prospect magazine, the Nation Institute, the Media Fund, the Independent Media Institute, and, Media Matters For America.

Case in point, in October 2010, Soros announced that he would soon donate $1 million directly to Media Matters and in May 2011, the Media Research Center reported that from 2003-2011, Soros had spent more than $48 million “funding media properties, including the infrastructure of news — journalism schools, investigative journalism and even industry organizations.”

Interestingly enough, according to papers filed with the SEC, Soros purchased nearly 2 million shares Halliburton in the fourth quarter of 2006—an organization repeatedly attacked by the very media outlets Soros supports financially.

In October of 2013, the MRC Business and Media Institute reported that George Soros officially accepted a position within the National Finance Council of the Ready for Hillary Super PAC, a group paving the way for a 2016 presidential run for the former first lady and Secretary of State.

According to the website Discover the Networks, prior to co-founding Media Matters, CEO David Brock consulted with a number of leading Democratic Party figures, including former Senator’s Hillary Clinton and Tom Daschle as well as former Vice President Al Gore. The fledgling Media Matters has also received more than $2 million in seed donations from a roster of affluent donors including Susie Tompkins Buell, co-founder of the fashion company Esprit and a close ally of Hillary Clinton.

Once fired for lying and other unethical behavior during the Watergate investigation, the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to Jerry Zeifman—a lifelong Democrat who supervised Hillary’s work on the committee—was fired because “she was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”

Also standing behind Brock however is John Podesta, a former chief of staff in the Clinton administration and head of the progressive think tank, the Center for American Progress. In 2004 Podesta provided Brock with office space for his new enterprise while Hillary Clinton played a key supporting role stating in front of an audience of left-wing bloggers that she had “helped to start and support” Media Matters.

In a NBC News report from 2007, Hillary states:

“I only wish that we had this active and fighting blogosphere about 15 years ago because we have certainly suffered over the last years from a real imbalance in the political world in our country. But we are righting that balance — or ‘lefting’ that balance — not sure which, and we are certainly better prepared and more focused on taking our arguments and making them effective and disseminating them widely and really putting together a network in the blogosphere in a lot of the new progressive infrastructure –institutions that I helped to start and support like Media Matters and Center for American Progress (2:46).

Who is David Brock?

Working as a research assistant for Democratic political operative Sidney Blumenthal, a former top advisor and confidante to President Clinton, Brock published his 2004 book about the Clinton administration scandals, The Clinton Wars. It was at this time Blumenthal conceded that Brock had helped him construct a partisan narrative that painted Clinton’s critics as agents of a well-organized ideological onslaught laying siege to the office of the presidency.

In April 2008, Brock collaborated with billionaire donor George Soros to launch a four-month, $40 million media campaign designed to publicly discredit Republican presidential candidate John McCain. In addition, Brock founded American Bridge 21st Century, a self-described “progressive research and communications organization” that conducts opposition research designed to help Democratic political candidates in 2010.

Later the same year, Brock, hospitalized in the past for mental health issues, became increasingly concerned that right-wing assassins were targeting him. By that time, Brock had armed his assistant who had no permit to carry a concealed firearm with a Glock handgun. Between his assistants’ early 2009 arrival and late 2010 departure from Media Matters, he also acquired a shotgun for Brock’s protection. The problem; firearm possession in Washington, D.C. constitutes multiple felonious federal offenses.

David Brock and Media Matters for America have been enjoying a political victory after aggressively engaging in what can only be viewed as actions of a well-organized ideological onslaught laying siege to the tenets of truth in reporting and ultimately forcing CBS News to retract its 60 Minutes story about Benghazi. The biggest fault with the Media Matters “point” is that it is analogous to finding one cracked brick in the Great Wall of China and screaming, “It’s no good”. This speaks more to Brock’s mental health issues than anything else given that the entire Media Matters argument centered on a person who said he returned to the Benghazi compound to fight but in actuality did not. This hardly constitutes a lie on the part of the 60 Minutes team.

With Media Matters for America, Brock has opportunistically targeted selected members of the conservative media in an attempt to discredit and discard their stories. Despite Brock’s self-chronicled dishonesty and volatile, erratic and increasingly paranoid behavior, Media Matters’ relentless attacks on conservatives in the media has at times done real damage to individuals and organizations.

The Scavengers

Enter wannabe spy and disgraced former military intelligence officer Jeff Stein. Stein took it upon himself to not only jump on the coat tails of his Media Matters deity in attacking a CBS reporter via blogs and any other rag that deemed his opinion of merit, but also, chose to engage in acts of domestic intimidation going after the reporter’s family and in the privacy of their own home.

While the CBS reporter was not at home at the time, Stein took advantage of an unwitting housekeeper to gain access to the home while her husband was in the shower and their children were upstairs playing in their bedrooms.

Normally, the idea of someone paying an unannounced visit would generate little concern but it is Mr. Stein’s apparent need for attention and need to “share” the experience via social media denotes an insecure and bitter bully with indications of closeted narcissistic rage.

Mr. Stein stated via his Twitter account:

According to several psychological and military professionals interviewed by Principle News, Stein, who is staunchly anti-Republican, is a “gotcha” type of person who is obsessed with “spy business” and is largely assessed as being narcissistic, bitter, and a closet Machiavellian.

To paraphrase the words of Mark Finkelstein—good natured advice to reporters attempting to save otherwise obsolete careers—instead of quoting blogs as “anonymous sources” and attempting to engage in acts of malicious intimidation against former members of Army Special Forces, keep your facts straight yourselves and tread not into the realm of family bearing malicious intent.

Aside from the obviously self-serving and desperate reasons, Mr. Stein chose to engage in acts of intimidation against a member of the press and family. In stark contrast, it is interesting how in a matter of weeks one dreg of a blog writer could manage to find so much information on a reporter’s family but in six years never bothered to validate the very criminals he is protecting?

So Who and What Was Behind the Benghazi murders that the Obama Administration Is So Worried About?

(ED) The White House knew within minutes of the attacks in Benghazi who was responsible and, in a span of 4 hours and 50 minutes, could neither coordinate a rescue or response beyond that of blaming a low-budget anti-Muslim video.

The American taxpaying public was inundated with election year proclamations of Al Qaeda’s demise, repeated assertions that a video was to blame, and the absurd idea that the murder of four innocent Americans really did not matter.

Intelligence findings have found that the White House knew within minutes of the attack, who was conducting the attack and that U.S. military assets were readily available and could have been deployed but were not due to a State Department belief that the “February 17” Brigade was ample enough security and response.

The Senate Intelligence Committee tasked with investigating the Benghazi attack released a comprehensive report finding the tragedy “preventable” and denoting that the administration failed to respond to “ample” warnings of security deterioration. The report faulted both the State and Defense departments and also cited the failure of the Obama administration to bring those responsible to justice.

Media puppeteer and “evil 1 percenter” multi-billionaire George Soros lined up to shape public perception of the Benghazi murders and protect their beloved demented agenda jockey Hillary ‘Benghazi Rose’ Clinton through liberal drone conduits such as the Soros funded, and David Brock “managed” Media Matters which was co-founded by Hillary Clinton herself. Jeff Stein is simply a political crumb snatcher and little more.

In the end, a video has been blamed, terrorist groups attributed, and witnesses sequestered, no one is being held accountable and now the Senior person in charge is running for the highest office in the land.
