The father of Ty Woods, a Navy SEAL who was killed in the September 11, 2012 terror attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, is speaking out on the latest revelations on the alleged White House cover-up in the wake of the tragedy.
"The people of the United States as well as the families need to know what actually happened," Charles Woods told Sean Hannity. He called the select congressional committee "an answer to prayer."
Charles Woods called the newly released emails a "smoking gun," and said that a failure in the Obama administration's foreign policy directly led to the death of his son and three other Americans. Woods told Hannity he believed he'd been lied to repeatedly. "Hillary Clinton came up to me and I gave her a handshake and a hug, and when I shook her hand she said to me, 'We are going to have the filmmaker arrested.' Even at that time she was trying to place a spin on what happened." "It wasn't the result of a video," Woods said. Stolen From HERE
What do you call it when the Department of Justice undertakes efforts to force Banksters to deny service to lawful business owners based on political differences? I know if the roles were revered the Lefties would call it Economic Terrorism.
I have said the Leftists in America mean to see you bend knee, imprisoned or dead. They mean to force you to their will. If you refuse, they will seek to interdict your ability to feed your family. If you persist, you get the Lois Lerner treatment and DoJ considers sending armed men to put you in prison. If you resist a DoJ dispatched Team, you will die.
The Enemies of Liberty have entered their EndGame. They are ramping up on all fronts, as predicted here more than a year ago. The pressure and challenges will continue to ramp up through the November elections. Then, whether they win or lose in the House & Senate, they will begin to go hard. Not necessarily on November 5 - but between November 5, 2014 and November 8, 2016 you'd better believe you, personally, will face the King's Men for your resistance to their will.
It's that simple. You will be ready, or your will not. They may come at you in a manner you anticipate, or they may come at you ... Read The Rest HERE
A Ukrainian treasure hunter has found a wonderful piece of history. Two bullets (one fired by a French soldier and one by a Russian, back in the 19th century) collided in flight and merged one into another. The chance of such collision is one of the billions. It’s easy to imagine how fierce the fight was. How dense should a fire be to make bullet hit bullet situation possible.
WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) is announcing today that he intends for the House to vote to create a new select committee to investigate the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans. He released the following statement: “Americans learned this week that the Obama Administration is so intent on obstructing the truth about Benghazi that it is even willing to defy subpoenas issued by the standing committees of the People's House. These revelations compel the House to take every possible action to ensure the American people have the truth about the terrorist attack on our consulate that killed four of our countrymen. In light of these new developments, the House will vote to establish a new select committee to investigate the attack, provide the necessary accountability, and ensure justice is finally served. “The administration's withholding of documents – emails showing greater White House involvement in misleading the American people – is a flagrant violation of trust and undermines the basic principles of oversight upon which our system of government is built. And it forces us to ask the question, what else about Benghazi is the Obama administration still hiding from the American people? “The House committees that have been investigating this attack have done extraordinary work, using their subpoena power, holding dozens of hearings, and conducting hundreds of interviews. Without this work we would not know much that we do today. But it’s clear that questions remain, and the administration still does not respect the authority of Congress to provide proper oversight. This dismissiveness and evasion requires us to elevate the investigation to a new level. I intend for this select committee to have robust authority, and I will expect it to work quickly to get answers for the American people and the families of the victims. “Four Americans died at the hands of terrorists nearly 20 months ago, and we are still missing answers, accountability, and justice. It’s time that change.”
Benghazi Cover-Up: The administration's tangled web of deceit now includes lying about prior lies as the White House press secretary tries to cover up its cover-up of why four Americans died in a terrorist attack. No, that was not Winston Smith, the rewriter of history working for the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell's classic novel "1984," tap-dancing once again before a no-longer-sycophantic White House press corps. Rather, it was that master storyteller, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney. Carney shamefully continued to insist that when then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice went on five Sunday talk shows days after the 2012 attack to offer an untrue story that Benghazi was the result of an inflammatory video, she was acting on the best intelligence offered by the intelligence community. Carney said this knowing that Mike Morell, CIA deputy director two years ago, testified before Congress and said the video story did not come from CIA analysts. As for the emails that showed the administration's motives for the story were political, to protect a president running for re-election and a secretary of state that wanted to be his successor, Carney offered his entry for 2014 Lie Of The Year: The emails obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch in a lawsuit specifically seeking Benghazi documents weren't really about Benghazi. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in an interview on TheBlaze TV that the newly released emails bring questions about the slaughter "into the White House, and it shows that the idea that the CIA created the talking points that Susan Rice was using is a big fat lie." In an argumentative exchange between Carney and ABC News' Jon Karl, Carney insisted that "if you look at the document in question here, it is not about Benghazi; it is about the protests around the Muslim world outside of U.S. embassies" and it was the general situation in the Middle East that Rice was being prepped for.
To his credit, Karl asked all the right questions in response to Carney's song and dance: "Why were you holding back this information? Why was this email not turned over to the Congress? Why was it not released when you released all the other emails?" and, of course, if what Carney was saying is true, why did it take a court case to get the unredacted email released? Days before Rice's TV tour, four Americans were murdered in the terrorist attack — including the first U.S. ambassador killed in three decades. Now Carney would have us believe Rice was sent to five Sunday talk shows, all of which consented to give her the time, just to talk about the "general situation" in the Middle East?
Ahmad Shah Massoud "Our policy was always to have a good and friendly realtions with everyone. But we never have accepted being oppressed and we will never accept it."
Ahmad Shah Massoud was born in the Panjshir Valley of Afghanistan in 1953. He would become the greatest national hero the country would ever know, standing up against impossible odds and battling oppression and intolerance throughout the land like a Fat Camp escapee attacking a cheesecake. Despite being outnumbered, outgunned, outsupplied and underfunded throughout his entire career as a military commander the "Lion of Panjshir" consistently managed to seize victory against seemingly impossible odds.
Growing up in rural Afghanistan, Massoud was a gifted, talented and well-read young man. He spoke five languages fluently, studied at several religious and secular institutions, was a talented volleyball and soccer player, and eventually was accepted into the Engineering program at Kabul University. Now there aren't a whole lot of badasses out there who can boast that they have motherfucking Engineering degrees, so that's something special right there. While in school he joined the Islamic Student Union and took his faith very seriously, so you can imagine the he was a little upset in 1978 when all of a sudden the fucking heathen Atheist Communists took control of Afghanistan and decided it would be awesome to start persecuting and executing all Afghani citizens who didn't feel like renouncing their religion and embracing Karl Marx and Fredrich Engels' ghosts in a giant phantasmic group hug.
Massoud was opposed to autocracy and intolerance of all forms and hated Commies more than the most hardcore flag-waving U-S-A chanting gun-toting American survivalist, so he decided he was going to do something about this sudden influx of pinko bastards into the country he loved. He organized a resistance movement in his native Panjshir, and started jacking up the Reds' shit like the Atlanta Braves in the 1995 NLCS. His rebel army fought the Afghani government troops for forty days, but eventually his movement was beaten down by a shitload of armored trucks, tanks, bullets and Assault-Class BattleMechs. Massoud quickly realized that the only way to fight back when you're as badly outnumbered as he was is to wage an insane guerilla war, choosing your battles carefully, striking quickly and fading back into the shadows like Che Guevara, Mao Zedong and the Rebel Alliance at the Battle of Yavin IV. He grabbed some history books and the VHS of Star Wars and started learning how to kick asses with limited resources.
It wouldn't take long before he got to put his newly-learned skills to good use. See, it turned out that everyone in Afghanistan pretty much hated the fucking Communists, and the new government quickly faced widespread rebellion among many of the provinces. So of course they went crying to their big brother - a tiny Asian nation that was known at the time as the Union of Soviet Motherfucking Socialist Republics. The Russkies responded by rolling twenty billion tanks, paratroopers and helicopters across the Afghan border with the intention of Express Mailing an asskicking or two to the citizens of Afghanistan courtesy of Josef Stalin's poltergeist. Ahmad Shah Massoud flexed his enormous brass testicles and quickly organized a rebel force known as the "Mujahideen" to combat the invasion.
"We consider this our duty — to defend humanity against the scourge of intolerance, violence, and fanaticism."
Massoud's mujahideen only consisted of about 5,000 freedom fighters desperately trying to gouge out the eyes of an overwhelmingly powerful Soviet army, so quick strikes were crucial to his strategy. His men would ambush supply and fuel convoys, rush in, beat the shit out of the Russians, steal their wallets and machine guns and then run back to the hills and caves of rural Afghanistan before the Soviets could figure out exactly how to get their heads out of their asses. Without the proper equipment and supplies, the Russians weren't nearly as effective as they could be, and Massoud's guerilla warfare skillz were more 1337 than a mad hax0r invading a LAN party at the senior citizen's center. He funded his operation by mining emeralds and selling them to Western Democracies, and he received aid and training from the CIA (probably - nobody would ever cop to that of course).
Massoud's tactics were brilliant, and they were the only way he had a chance of defeating the massive Russian armies. His strategy wasn't to capture and fortify towns or to engage in open conflict with the enemy (where he would leave his men open to having their heads smashed underneath the treads of some T-72 tanks), but rather to constantly weaken their infastructure and fatigue their forces while growing the resistance movement and winning over the hearts of the citizenry. He knew that the longer he could prolong the war, the more demoralized and overextended the Soviets would become and the greater his chances were of winning ultimate x-treme victory. He didn't need to kill their soldiers, rather defeat their ideals, crush their spirits, and win over the people. For nine years his desperate band of rebels battled the mighty Soviet Union. Six times the Russians launched major offensives into Panjshir, assaulting the region with over 12,000 men, tanks, and helicopters, but they were never able to gain a decisive victory over Massoud's mujahideen. Finally in 1989, the Russians abandoned Afghanistan, leaving the country to it's own devices. But in actuality Massoud's war was only just beginning.
You see, Ahmad Massoud wasn't one of those jackass radical Islam extremist wackos who use women and children as suicide bombers, slaughter innocent civilians and shoot anyone who tries to get funky on the dance floor. He believed in Democracy, religious tolerance, and equality. He supported women's rights, music, the arts, and education and was opposed to terrorism, oligarchy, repression, corruption, foreign influence and extremist brain-washing. Obviously these beliefs didn't mesh very well with a little organization known as the Taliban and their good friends Al-Qaida. No sooner had the Communists fallen then Massoud found himself embroiled in a life-or-death struggle with the Pakistan-funded Taliban for the future of Afghanistan. The Afghan Civil War was on like neckbone.
For several years, Massoud and his pro-Democracy rebels (known to the West as the "Northern Alliance") fought with the Taliban and Al-Qaida, and Afghanistan was a fractured nation. He continually pleaded with the West for help in his struggle with these forces and his attempts to hunt down and assassinate high ranking Taliban and Al-Qaida leaders, but we pretty much were just like, "dude if you aren't fucking up the Russians we really couldn't give a shit". He bravely continued to lead his guerilla warriors into battle until he was killed in a suicide attack by Al-Qaida operatives posing as foreign journalists. He died on September 9th, 2001 - just two days before the attack on the World Trade Center.
After 9/11, the United States got off its ass and started fucking the Taliban's shit up with the serious effing realness. Coalition forces joined up with Massoud's "Northern Alliance" and within the span of a few months the Taliban's military had been reduced to smouldering piles of black turbans and ass, and a Democratic government was installed. President Karzai's first action was to declare Ahmad Shah Massoud a national hero in recognition of his heroic actions as defender of Afghanistan for over twenty years. Massoud, the "Martyred Commander", was a tireless warrior who fought for democracy, tolerance, and freedom for his people, and should be remembered as a true badass.

By: Larry O'Connor Missing from much of the coverage of yesterday’s revelations that Senior White House adviser Ben Rhodes coordinated an effort to obfuscate the truth behind the Sept 11 2012 terror attacks in Benghazi was a key detail about the insidious relationship between politics and media in Washington. The brother of Ben Rhodes is David Rhodes, president of CBS News.
It isn’t enough for CBS News to mention the relationship as a parenthetical statement as they did in yesterday’s coverage. Larger questions deserve to be answered about the atmosphere and culture at CBS News and how open Rhodes is to any investigations into the Benghazi story and his brother’s involvement. How much freedom is given to reporters to pursue Obama’s Rhodes and does CBS’ Rhodes encourage the investigation? Has CBS’ Rhodes ever made a blanket statement to his employees that there will be no repercussions against any reporter or producer investigating his brother? How does Rhodes avoid an “unspoken understanding” in his news rooms that his brother is off limits or that reporters should tread carefully because if the boss gets a call from the White House it could be a career-ender? These questions are even more relevant in light of Sharyl Attkisson’s recent departure from CBS News and her assertions that she was considered a “troublemaker” for continuing to pursue the unanswered questions about the terror attacks and the White House’s efforts to misdirect the American people. In an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, Attkisson described the atmosphere at her former network: “They really, really liked the story but you start to hear from, you know, other routes that “why don’t you just leave it alone,” “you know, you are kind of a troublemaker because you are still pursuing it.” It kind of goes from hot to cold in one day, sometimes. Where they are asking you to pursue something heavily and then it’s almost as if a light switch goes off and look at you all of the sudden, “Why are you bringing this story?”" Attkisson has never suggested that her former boss, David Rhodes, personally intervened and stopped any investigations into his brother’s involvement in the Benghazi cover-up, but the conflict of interest is obvious.
(CNSNews.com) - In 20 percent of American families in 2013, according to new data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), not one member of the family worked. A family, as defined by the BLS, is a group of two or more people who live together and who are related by birth, adoption or marriage. In 2013, there were 80,445,000 families in the United States and in 16,127,000—or 20 percent--no one had a job.
