Colonel Terry Fobbs – A Conservative Soldier Warrior For America

Always possess courage, leadership and faith in a loving God to continue to inspire the nation’s noble warriors with honor, duty and service for country.

Colonel Terry Fobbs has passed on to join the hundreds of thousands of America’s soldier warriors who have brought honor and integrity to America through war and peacetime service.  For many Americans the patriotic service of the citizen soldier has personally touched their lives and families as in many wars, like in Afghanistan, or in defense of America’s sovereign interests around the globe. What is truly remarkable about the nature of the conservative soldier warrior is the noble spirit that engages the heart to go forward into battle and not away from responsibility.

The pillars of courage which Americans have seen in their own family’s sacrifice when a son or daughter has volunteered to seek a greater cause than a backyard barbeque or a quick political posting that denigrates a soldier’s service, is heartwarming. America has always been home to the hypocrite and the coward, because that is the nature of hypocrisy and cowardice; to run, to hide, and to pitch rocks until the soldier has secured their freedom. Even in the Revolutionary War, there were cowards who would rather sale out their freedom for the comfort of powerless slavery.

But the nation, and the soldier warrior need not be concerned about the coward or the hypocrite, for their kind would do more harm than good if they could find momentary steel in their hollow backbone.

The greatness of the conservative warrior soldier is found in the heart of a soldier and officer like Colonel Terry Fobbs, who decided that even in the midst of national civil rights turmoil in his native Detroit and in protests in the streets over Vietnam, he saw the higher purpose. He volunteered to defend the U.S. Constitution and to protect it and the nation with honor, duty and courage, because where others sought baseless complaints to identify with, he sought solutions that would strengthen America.

That is the trademark of a true American soldier warrior.  It did not matter that there were protesters cowering in groups with signs of dissent or hiding behind their marijuana cigarettes, and peace pipes, America’s true heroes who protected those rights, knew to avoid duty, honor and service is to surrender one’s values, one’s principles and eventually one’s nation.

If America is to remain free, its soldiers have to remain above those who love to stand against protecting the nation, and who would rather find a way to elect political leaders who attempt to negotiate away America’s freedoms, its borders and its sovereignty.  The weakness of those who talk away the nation’s freedoms are never as strong or as enduring as the Colonel Fobbs of this nation who stand up and fight to defend and strengthen the pillars of freedom.

Veteran’s Day is fast approaching and it is important, yes even essential that each American takes the time to embrace as well as to celebrate their very own Colonel Fobbs or Sergeant Wagner or Private Garcia in their family.  Take the time to understand and embrace with your heart what it means to have their honor and their courage.

Fifty years ago, on May 12th in 1962, in an address to the U.S. Military Academy, General Douglas MacArthur described the loyal patriotic devotion that military leaders like Colonel Terry Fobbs possessed.  He affirmed that military leaders and soldiers must display three cherished and necessary qualities.

 

 “Duty, Honor, Country” — those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying point to build courage when courage seems to fail, to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith, to create hope when hope becomes forlorn.”                 General Douglas MacArthur

The nation has long admired the nobleness of soldiers who answer the clear clarion call to duty, honor and service. Soldiers like Colonel Terry Fobbs did so during the Vietnam era, the cold war era, Desert Storm and even taking leadership in police action in Kosovo and other military engagements in America’s defense.

Soldier warriors do not relish a fight for fighting sake.  They relish freedom; they relish principles of courage that is both moral as well as biblical.  They relish honor, which gives them the ability to possess on the battlefield the will to preserve against unimaginable odds, because their cause is noble and it is just.

General McArthur insisted that the nobility of service as a soldier and warrior for America’s freedoms was based in the true essence that only the soldier and military leader stands as the Nation’s war guardian.

Colonel Terry Fobbs did not depart the nation through his death, because warrior soldiers like Colonel Fobbs do not disappear.  Their honor, their bravery, their righteous service to this nation is part of the ever evolving fabric which makes America unique. America’s safety is their creed. America celebrates the profession of the soldier warrior that Colonel Terry Fobbs devoted his life, both military and civilian career to.

 “Yours is the profession of arms, the will to win, the sure knowledge that in war there is no substitute for victory, that if you lose, the Nation will be destroyed, that the very obsession of your public service must be duty, honor, and country.”  General Douglas MacArthur

COL (Ret) Terry Fobbs — December 4, 1952 – October 22, 2012

Colonel Fobbs’ service never faltered, never failed.  Courage, leadership and faith in a loving God to continue to inspire the nation’s noble warriors with honor, duty and service for country.

We collectively say thank you good and faithful warrior.

 

Old Soldiers Never Die

Obama Refuses To Answer Direct Questions On “Requests For Help” In Benghazi

Obama seemed a little indignant, to something his staff shields him from—a News reporter asking the hard questions.  In a Denver 9News Report, Obama was asked direct questions about the “stand down” orders and why requests for help were denied during the ongoing attacks in Benghazi.  Obama, talking “around” the direct questions responded:

“Well, we are finding out exactly what happened. I can tell you, as I’ve said over the last couple of months since this happened, the minute I found out what was happening, I gave three very clear directives. Number one, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to. Number two, we’re going to investigate exactly what happened so that it doesn’t happen again. Number three, find out who did this so we can bring them to justice. And I guarantee you that everyone in the state department, our military, the CIA, you name it, had number one priority making sure that people were safe. These were our folks and we’re going to find out exactly what happened, but what we’re also going to do it make sure that we are identifying those who carried out these terrible attacks.”

Obama was asked twice, “were they denied requests for help during the attack?” Each time he gave his now standard “talking points script” on all things Benghazi, “I’m making sure we are securing all our personnel, we are investigating, we will find out who did this and bring them to justice.”  No doubt Team Obama is betting on the clock running out to Election day, hoping against hope that the breaking news which has been coming out of the Benghazi massacre will slow down, and that no more damning details will come to light.

Its worth noting, in keeping his “story” straight, that Obama said on”The Michael Smerconish Show” Friday :

“I was not personally aware of any request, adding that there is an “infrastructure” in place to “manage requests.”

FOX news has reported that in a recently released cable from Ambassador Stevens on the day of the attack stated a “growing problems with security” in Benghazi.”  And the CIA, is throwing the blame game ball out of their court.  ABC’s Jake Tapper, who has been following this story from day one, tweeted

CIA spox: “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ” –@jaketapper Oct. 26, 2012

We know from the Congressional hearings of October 9th, that a low level Officer at the State Department, Susan Lamb, testified that she received requests for added security prior to the attacks, and that they were denied.  Remember, that Hillary Clinton has stated she personally was requesting this added security—but it was denied—so this points directly to the White House.  All roads in this tangled web seem to lead to one place—whether its the requests for added security prior to the attacks, or, if its the requests for help during the attack, all roads point directly to the White House.   Will we learn the whole truth on Benghazi prior to Election day?  If Obama and his regime get their way, I’d say No.

Stay tuned, we will continue to bring you up to date information on this story.

A Walk For The President

My aunt sent this video link to me, and it could not have come at a more appropriate time. I am actually in our nation’s capital as I write this, so as I am watching this, I can literally look out of my hotel window and see the Washington Monument and the Capital Building.

To walk the hallowed streets of the very heartbeat of America, knowing that you are walking in the very footsteps that our Founding Fathers walked, is amazing! It is a beauty that I believe every citizen should see at least once in their lifetime.

Most importantly, the man in the White House needs to be reminded of who America is. One Nation, Under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All!

A New Moral Majority? Calling ALL People of Faith

When John F Kennedy ran for president there were many who questioned whether a Catholic should be president. Would his presidency give the Pope a direct line to the country’s administration?

Kennedy addressed the question reminding Americans “I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant, nor Jewish…” “…where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials–and where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all.”

Today some look at Mitt Romney’s Mormon religion and ask if his beliefs will negatively impact the country. When asked about his faith in a recent CNN  interview Romney replied:  I am often asked about my faith and my beliefs about Jesus Christ. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Savior of mankind. Every religion has its own unique doctrines and history. These should not be bases for criticism but rather a test of our tolerance. Religious tolerance would be a shallow principle indeed if it were reserved only for faiths with which we agree.

Is Romney a Better Choice for Christians?

It is expected that this will be a close election. Because of the impact on religion including the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare); the value issues, including sanctity of life, marriage and religious freedom; and concern a the rise in secularization of society groups who might otherwise stay out of the fray are speaking up.

They have looked at the issue and the candidates.  Many specific religions are not recommending one candidate but are instead reminding people to look at what the candidate stands for.

Do you know someone of faith still on the fence? Perhaps they would feel better knowing that many faithful have found the best choice.

This week Reverend Billy Graham published an advertisement aimed at his Christian followers. You can read about it here. He wants voters to at the state of the country and vote their Biblical principles.  Son, Rev. Franklin Graham, offered an opinion on whether Christians could vote for a Mormon.

We are at a profound crossroads. Our secularized society has shaken its fist in God’s face and rejected His very name. Like Joseph and Daniel, we must not compromise when government clashes with the worship of God. We must not silence our voices to God’s law. We must use our influence to elect those who will govern with respect for the sanctity of marriage as between one man and one woman; the sanctity of life; and yes, the protection of God’s beloved nation Israel. We must not cast votes for officials—whether candidates of the Democratic, Republican, or Tea Party, or of a religious persuasion—that are against these principles of God. We have, in the past, elected Christians who have defied some of these very principles.

We need something like what Jerry Falwell did in the 1980s. We need a “moral majority”—made up of Christians, Jews, Mormons, Catholics and many others of faith—to come together to take a stand for our religious freedoms and rights.

In recent days, President Clinton said that President Obama “has a plan to rebuild America from the ground up.” But God-fearing Americans have no desire to see America rebuilt—but rather restored. To “rebuild it” would be to create a new nation without God or perhaps under many gods. This was never the intent of those who shed their blood for the freedom to worship as “one nation under God.”

I pray that all Christians and God-fearing Americans will put aside labels and vote for principles—God’s principles—that for many years have resulted in His blessing upon our nation.

So, can a Christian vote for a Mormon? The answer is yes.

Catholics, while not endorsing one candidate are asking their members to vote their values as seen in this powerful video.


Dr. Alveda King, Dr. Martin Luther King’s niece, wrote an opinion piece in the Washington Times promoting black Christian voters vote for moral values and the candidate who work to improve the black community.

This time, in 2012, I beg my brothers and sisters in the black community to look past color and vote for God’s values, not those of a particular political party.

I was in an African-American church in Virginia earlier this month, and afterward many people came up to me with tears in their eyes. Regarding the 2008 election, they said, “I just didn’t know what to do; I just didn’t know. But now you say there are other people on the ballot, like state and local levels. There are referendums and constitutional issues. If I can’t vote for any candidate in the presidential slot, at least I can write someone in.”

Don’t ever say I’m going to vote for the lesser of two evils. No, we can’t think that way. We are not voting for evil. We are voting for the best candidates possible.

Early on in Mr. Obama’s campaign, people came to find out that I opposed his agenda, and I took criticism from friends and family and even other pastors. They thought the black community would be influential in the Obama administration. Besides, we all would be praying for him. While I don’t doubt the power of prayer, Mr. Obama has done very little, if anything, to help the black community. In fact, he has turned his back on the very values that are the moral backbone of the black community.

 

A diverse group of Christian leaders penned an open letter last month praising the social policies found within the Republican Platform of Mitt Romney.

 The letter also focuses on the moral principles in the Republican platform, which are “squarely within the Judeo-Christian tradition” and are “at stake in today’s society.”

Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, are thanked for running on a platform which is a “political compass” in the “confusing moral thickets of our day.”

The signers encourage support for Romney even though there may be “differences in a candidate’s theological doctrine.” This is despite the fact that “some have tempered their enthusiasm” for the Mormon candidate. Government policy is the issue, the letter says, not theology.

A well-known Evangelical pastor Bishop Harry Jackson created two videos; in the first, he lists four reasons he will support Mitt Romney and in the second, four reasons he will not support Barack Obama.

These are challenging times and for many a challenging decision. My own favorite pastor put it succinctly:

I think this [issue] is one of the reasons why many Christians struggle with this year’s election.  Fortunately, we’re not electing a pastor but a president.  I’m really praying for a change and I hope one more week is enough time to reach enough people to capture a victory.

Vote November 6.

 

 

Obama Campaign Desperate for Cash

Forget about “Frankenstorm”. You want to know who is really panicking now? Jim Messina and Julianna Smoot are shaking in their boots. Why? Because Mitt Romney’s campaign managed to collect $21 million more than Obama’s campaign so far this month!

aresauburn™ (CC)

First, from Jim Messina at around 6pm EDT today:

I’m asking you to dig deep, because I have some bad news:

We just found out that Mitt Romney and the Republicans outraised us in the first half of this month, putting us $45 million behind during these crucial final days.

The math here is pretty simple: With that cash advantage, they can outspend us by $4 million per day, every day, for the final 11 days.

Then Julianna Smoot chiming in after 11pm EDT:

Friend —

We just found out how much more money Mitt Romney and the Republicans have in the bank: $45 million.

I hope that sounds like a lot to you, because it is. And it doesn’t even include outside groups.

That is a massive advantage to have with such a short time left. We have the power to decide whether that will be the determining factor in this election — but only if everyone gets on board and does their part.

It’s no secret that the Obama campaign has been begging for cash several times daily, but now their pleas are getting downright desperate. So what does that mean to conservatives? This is no time to coast. If you haven’t given to the Romney campaign yet, now’s a great time. Getting Messina and Smoot desperate is one thing. Beating them on election day is the real goal, though.

Epic Rant of All That is Wrong With Obama Administration

The Obama For America “First Time” ad featuring young actress Lena Dunham got my blood boiling. As a woman, I am appalled at the President’s campaign sexualizing the act of voting; an act for which men and women have died. This shameful piece of political garbage demeans all of the struggles in our history fought by very brave women to gain equality, be taken seriously and be given the right to vote.

Beneath the surface of questionable advertising is a culture of immaturity and disrespect not seen before in American history. This president, his campaign staff and his chosen administration has, over the course of 4 short years, belittled the office of the presidency.

Instead of screaming into a pillow or drinking away my frustration, I ranted on Facebook with all of the immature, demeaning, weak and embarrassing moments that have dominated this presidency. Many have asked that I post it here so they can share it with friends.
So, here ya go:

I can’t take it. The “first time” ad pushed me over the edge. Gotta rant…

Pimp with a Limp show, calls Romney a “bulls****er” hasn’t stopped talking about Big Bird, binders and bayonets… And there’s the feet on the desk, the ipod full of his own speeches given to the queen, the White House gift shop gifts to the PM of England’s children, the DVDs that don’t even work, the fake doctors, fake vegetables, fake smiles and a fake recovery. Millions of dollars in taxpayer funded vacations, “in case you didn’t hear, I won…” Beer pong in the White House, Emanuel the F-bomb king, skips 50% of his security briefings and then goes to bed during a 7 hour battle with terrorists while officials watch in real time the death of 4 Americans including the President’s personal representative. But never misses a TV spot, Letterman, The View, Leno, Daily Show, never misses picking his final four on ESPN. “Put y’all back in chains” BFD. Bowling like the Special Olympics, beer summit, “police acted stupidly” Bow, bow, bow again. America sux tour, skips meetings with allies. Serves the President of Mexico s’mores for dessert. Special flights to Chicago for pick up basketball games, golfs more than 100 times. I didn’t say that. You didn’t build that. Bridges, roads, teachers, cops…. Shovel-ready not so shovel-ready afterall. Unlawfully using citizen emails, Cash for Clunkers fiasco, sends his 13 year old without parental supervision to Mexico for spring break (did secret service babysit?). Cue balls. Salahi’s crash the party. All this for a flag? Eye candy and “corpse-men,” Buying votes for Obamacare with rides on AF1. Wears sweatpants in the Oval Office and typically shows up after 9am. Returned Winston Churchill bust. Pick up a mop or get out of the way. “It’s Constitutional, B*****s” Nixes National Day of Prayer, Pay-go is a No-go. Comment on Kanye, leave Bibi waiting. Teleprompter with sixth graders. “JULIA” Meetings and commissions and boards, oh my. Shout outs during tragedy, still won’t call it terrorism. Blame it on a video. “A**kicker of the United States” Green companies out of green. Snitch on your neighbor, “Truth” team, bullying the nation into anti-bullying schools agenda from the bully pulpit. Emily Rosen… 3 of them. Push granny off a cliff. Bush’s fault. Bush’s fault. Bush’s fault. No meetings with jobs council. Private sector is doing fine. Carrying a big stick. Not optimal bumps in the road. Romnesia comedy tour. Flags with faces, bitter clingers, bungles a toast to the Queen. Executive orders, school lunches, the sequester is not going to happen. We are our brothers’ keeper… except for mine. Supports OWS. Mao-rry Christmas, Lady Liberty fly-by. WTF, Winning the Future or WTF?

Electoral College Analysis: Forecasting a Romney Victory

Up until the first presidential debate, polling for Romney looked pretty bleak. Recently, there’s been a recent Romney surge in polling on the popular vote. But this close in the election, is it enough for Romney to win?

Let’s take a look at the state of the polls.

The following map from Real Clear Politics shows the breakdown of states that are either solid or leaning Republican or Democrat, as well as swing states.

According to this morning’s Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll, Wisconsin has Obama and Romney tied at 49%. Last week, Obama had a 2 point margin over Romney. Given that Wisconsin is quite literally, the home of the progressive movement, this is an impressive swing.

(There are many who would dismiss Rasmussen’s polls as ‘right leaning’ or ‘suspicious’ because they don’t release their methodology. However, during the past two election cycles, Rasmussen has been the most accurate polling outfit, which gives some legitimacy to their poll numbers.)

If Mitt Romney can win Wisconsin, he scores a major victory over Obama.

Two other important swing states are Virginia and Florida.

Depending on the poll, Romney has anywhere from a 1 point to a 5 point margin over Obama in Florida. The Real Clear Politics Average has Romney up by 1.8 points.

Romney is also currently up by 2 points in Virginia according to Rasmussen.

To clench the electoral college, Romney must win both Florida and Virginia. Florida has 29 electoral votes, and Virginia has 13.

Wisconsin has 10 electoral votes. If Romney wins Virginia, Florida and Wisconsin, along with the solidly Republican states in the South, he has 243 of the 270 electoral votes he needs to win.

In swing state North Carolina,  Romney has been ahead consistently in the polls for the past month. Colorado also has had Romney up, albeit by a slim margin. If Romney takes both of these states, he adds another 24 electoral college votes, giving him 267 of the 270 needed to win.

Of the remaining swing states, Obama is ahead in Nevada by about a 2 point spread. He holds Michigan by between 3 and 7 points, depending on the poll.

In New Hampshire, Obama is currently up by 1.1 points, according to the RCP average. However, Rasmussen has Romney up by 2.

If Romney wins all of the swing states mentioned above, then he only needs New Hampshire’s 4 electoral votes to put him at 271 electoral votes- 1 vote over the 270 needed to win.

Even if Obama wins Pennsylvania, where he’s up by 5, Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, and Nevada, along with the solidly Democratic state, he only has 267 electoral votes.

The map below depicts this outcome.

The result of this scenario is a Romney presidency. It would be historical in that, for the first time since 1972, the presidency could be won without Ohio.

Obviously, this is only one of many scenarios that could unfold on election night, and it is a bit of a stretch for Romney- his triumph depends on a series of wins in tough battleground states, including some where he’s currently behind in the polls. But it is possible. And much more likely than polling from a month ago shows. And with just under two weeks until the election, it may become more likely.

Private Sector Ends Unwanted Alien Invasion

Hydrilla: Michelle Obama’s heart-healthy next menu item.

Prince William County, VA is suffering the ill effects of another alien invasion and a collection of politicians is engaged in vigorous hand–wringing over possible solutions.

No, this isn’t another rant about illegals clogging 7/11 parking lots. This time it’s alien plants clogging Quantico Creek.

Recently Dumfries Mayor Jerry Foreman, Del. Mark Dudenhefer (R–2nd), Supervisor Maureen Caddigan, and Dumfries Councilmember Helen Reynolds took a pontoon boat tour of Quantico Creek. (Oddly enough Supervisor Frank Principi, a Democrat who is usually an enthusiastic participant anytime commuter ferries are involved, did not make the voyage.)

Creeping along at about the same speed as OJ’s SUV, the group’s mission was to see for themselves the extent of the hydrilla crop currently infesting Quantico Creek. Hydrilla is a green, leafy and invasive species from Florida that might do well in a vegan’s salad bowl, but causes extensive problems in lakes and waterways.

Hydrilla also has much in common with the federal government: It grows and grows, and as it increases in size all surrounding activity slowly grinds to a halt as a result of silt buildup and tendril blockage.

In Quantico Creek hydrilla is so extensive it’s impossible for boaters to cross and the alien vegetation has crowded out white lilies, swans and crabs.

Unfortunately the creek touches a number of jurisdictions so agreeing on a solution is going to be difficult. If the problem is solved, everyone wants credit but if there are problems no one wants to take the blame. Plus, anytime a political decision takes place outdoors, it attracts “environmentalists” with all the attendant scare stories, warnings and potential lawsuits.

However, I have a suggestion with two advantages in that it saves time and eliminates hydrilla. Simply call the Montclair Property Owners Assn. (MPOA) because it solved the very same problem over ten years ago

Back in 1994 Lake Montclair was rapidly becoming Swamp Montclair. Hydrilla covered approximately 45 percent of the lake. Lakefront property owners were rapidly losing the use of the lake. After easing into the water — jumping was out of the question since it was like leaping into a bowl of mold chowder — you felt like Moses in the bulrushes. The obnoxious plant would rub against your bare legs like a sex harasser on Metro’s Red line.

The MPOA was offered the same three options the politicians are considering. The first is harvesting. Think John Deere combines in the water. Unfortunately, this option is particularly attractive to politicians because it’s perpetual. You don’t eliminate the hydrilla; you just give it a yearly styling.

In fact, the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments has been running a harvesting program on the Potomac for almost 40 years. The Army Corps of Engineers (the same experts in charge of levies in New Orleans!) mows the river annually and everyone involved is happy. Politicians get to appropriate and show “concern” for the problem and the Corps of Engineers gets to justify its budget. A win–win for everyone but the taxpayers.

Montclair could have purchased a huge harvesting machine and donated the annual hydrilla crop to the school lunch program. But someone has to operate the harvester, repair the harvester and store the harvester, which means the cost never ends. Appealing to government but a problem for the private sector.

The second option is always carp. Montclair tried neutered Japanese carp in an effort to harvest hydrilla the natural way. I used to throw rice off the dock in an effort to entice passing carp into my section of the lake, but it never worked. And neither did the carp.

It could have been neutered carp suffer from a testosterone deficit that affects their appetite or maybe they were just resentful after losing their manhood. Or it could have been the hydrilla infestation was so extensive solving the problem would have required a concentration of carp dense enough to allow one to walk across the lake without getting your feet wet.

I’m reasonably sure the politicians won’t opt for carp either, not because it’s ineffective, but because it’s tough to have their photo taken hugging a live fish.

The last option is the one that works: herbicide treatment. Naturally this choice put the victims of hysterical “environmentalist” indoctrination into a tizzy because it introduces a chemical into a liquid. Of course adding salt to your soup does the same thing, but “environmentalists” are immune to analogy.

The Montclair greenies were joined by fishermen who had no problem with property owners losing the use of the lake as long as they could persuade a bass to stop hiding in the hydrilla long enough for them to hook it.

After approximately a year of debate (lightspeed in political terms) the MPOA board realized hydrilla was also adding to the cost of lake dredging; the association’s largest recurring expense. So in late 2000 the MPOA board approved a treatment with a chelated copper herbicide. Problem solved without wasting tax dollars or time. It was a perfect conservative solution: local, effective and cost–conscious. Which is another reason Mayor Foreman should call Montclair ASAP.

He’s concerned that eliminating hydrilla could cost Dumfries half its annual $4 million budget. Montclair treated an entire 110-acre lake for only $20,730.00.

 

THREE Denials for Help in Benghazi

Fox News has obtained information that confirms CIA operatives requested military backup 3 times during the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.

According to Fox News Special Reporter Jennifer Griffin:

“They knew that the consulate was under fire and that the ambassador needed help. They were told to stand down twice.”

She explains that the small group of CIA operatives at the annex a few blocks south of the consulate then disregarded orders and made their way from the CIA annex to the consulate building. After searching unsuccessfully for the ambassador and making some “heroic efforts to rescue those who had survived,” they made their way back to the annex.

“At that point, another request for help, for military help, some sort of air cover, was made from the CIA annex but no help was sent.”

Shortly thereafter, another CIA team flew in from the capital city of Tripoli but were denied at the airport. According to Griffin’s report, there was “infighting” among Libyan officials on the ground about whether or not the team would be granted an escort to the compound.

Griffin continues, “According to sources on the ground during the Benghazi attack, they did have laser pointers on the mortar fire team, and that if Special Operations specter gun ships had been sent in, and some were on standby… that they could have prevented those mortars that struck the compound.”

Meanwhile back in D.C., a meeting was held at the Oval Office whose attendees included the President, Vice President and Secretary of Defense. That meeting was held at 5:00pm on the day of the attack, one hour AFTER the initial fire began.

There were 2 surveillance drones present during the 7 hour battle that could have been accessed by a number of US agencies.

UPDATE! Benghazi CIA Operators Told To Stand Down; Fallen Navy Seal Dad “The President & Hillary Did Not Tell Me The Truth”

CIA Operators, Glenn Dougherty and Tyrone Woods, heard the cries from the CIA safe house nearby.  All accounts have these men fighting until their deaths.  But what we know now is that not only did they send 3 separate requests for help, they were told to “Stand Down”.  Fox News reports that

Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they informed their higher-ups at the annex to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. Soon after, they were again told to “stand down.”

They ignored those orders.  They went to the rescue of Ambassador Stevens and the other Americans on scene.  They took fire, rescued as many as they could, but could not find Ambassador Stevens, so they returned to the CIA “annex” located a few miles away.  At that point they started to receive mortar fire, and they called again for help.  And that request was denied, too. They were denied a total of 3 times.

 FOX  is the only Main Steam Media reporting on Benghazi, you can find the whole report here.  This part of this story is still breaking, we will continue to update as needed. Update below.

There are some stories that hit a chord, when you sit down to write, there is a fear you won’t convey the proper words, sometimes there are no words.  Being that the Main Stream Media is ignoring “all things Benghazi” its up to us, regular Americans, to do “their” job and spread the truth.  To spread the truth so these heroes will not have died in vain.  With that said, this  story will enrage you, and it should.

Charles Woods is the father of Tyrone Woods, the ex-Navy Seal who answered the call from the Benghazi “CIA Safe House” which was attacked on September 11th, 2012.  Tyrone didn’t make it out alive, but not before he fought valiantly for  several hours, taking out dozens of terrorists.  When Tyrone’s body was brought back via Andrew’s Air Force base, his father Charles was on hand to receive his slain son’s flag draped coffin.  After Obama and Hillary spoke, Charles was greeted separately by Obama and Hillary.  As Obama greeted Charles, Charles stated:

“…his face was pointed toward me, but he could not look me in the eye, he looked somewhere over my shoulder, and his handshake was like a dead fish.  I am a retired Judge, and it was my job to know when someone is telling the truth, his voice was not forceful–not like ‘I am really sorry about this Mr. Woods’, no he was not sorry or remorseful.  I could tell he wasn’t being truthful.  I didn’t speak out before, but after I learned they knew, I want to know who it was that gave the order to not protect…to not send in troops? ” (emphasis mine)

Mr. Woods goes on to relate his encounter then with Hillary Clinton.  Hillary, gave him a “hug”, and he thanked her for taking the time to come and speak with him.  Mr. Woods goes on to state:

“…..first off she said she was “sorry”, her countenance was not good, she then tells me ‘we will make sure the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted’ and I could tell, she was not telling me the truth, I mean she is smarter than me, I’m sure, and she knew she was not telling me the truth…”

Charles Woods also was incensed by VP Joe Biden.  Blundering Joe is one thing, but what he said to Mr. Woods is so crass  and in this case, so offensive:

….then Joe Biden in a real ‘boisterous” voice says ‘yea, I’ve gotten a call like that in the middle of the night, hey let me ask you something, did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?’

Yea, Joe, I’m sure watching that live feed, watching men who go in and take fire, realizing at some point they were it, no back-up would be coming, God forgive you, Obama and Hillary.  God help us.  Obama, you- Joe and Panetta were meeting at 5pm during this attack, and CIA sources report it would be the POTUS who would have to say “stand down”.  And all you have to offer this slain hero’s Dad has to do with the anatomy of his private parts?

Let me say why this story is so very important right now.  Charles Woods says he is a man of faith, and that one thing he knows for sure—is that his son did not die in vain.  As it stands, this story—Tyrone Woods’ story and all 4 dead Americans, their deaths may well be swept under the rug by the Main Stream Media, the Benghazi cover-up forgotten in a few weeks.  So, for these Americans deaths to be not in vain, we must make this the turning point—it would be the turning point in this Election if it had the same press as a Cindy Sheehan.

This Country may well perish for lack of knowledge–information.  I know one thing, most Americans are good honorable people.  Many are just not “plugged in” to these events, and they then have no idea that we have a President who lies, who dishonors, who is so arrogant, who is condescending.   He thinks he can “lecture” and use “mock anger” as he did in that second debate over Benghazi.   I don’t think I will ever forget his superb acting when he reeled around at Romney saying “I take it as an offense for anyone to suggest that I don’t take this seriously, it is I who has to stand over those graves, meet those families, and to suggest I or anyone in my Administration would politicize such a thing…well is despicable”.

No, they Obama, Biden, and Hillary just stood over those coffins and lied, and they felt no remorse.  These people do not  represent me,  they do not represent who America is—this really has nothing whatsoever to do with Politics.  This has to do with honor, and decency, who who we are as Americans.  I know many of you wanted to believe that Obama was going to be the next Abe Lincoln, a man who would bring us all together.  You wanted to believe he would be fair, that he was for the poor, he was for the disenfranchised. I am sorry, I wanted that too—but its time to face the truth.  He is none of those things.

Are we so numb to Charles Wood’s pain?   We can’t bring his son back, a son who died for our Freedom.  But we can honor him, by promising to do what we can, to restore America’s honor.  And that has to start with the defeat of Obama and his regime.

Spin:Romney’s Jeep comments meant to scare Ohioans

The spin around Romney’s echoing of a Bloomberg report saying Fiat officials were considering moving Jeep production in China is in full swing. Who’s right?

Mitt Romney’s statement on Jeep

Romney, probably referencing this Bloomberg article, said that he ” saw a story today that one of the great manufacturers in this state, Jeep, now owned by the Italians, is thinking of moving all production to China.” The Detroit Free Press and Obama campaign are in full spin mode to show that Romney lied about the Jeep move when actually.. Romney was right.

According the Bloomberg,  heads of both Chrysler and Fiat said that they have “plans to return Jeep output to China and may eventually make all of its models in that country.” That sounds like Fiat is seriously considering moving ALL Jeep production to China at some point.

Fiat SpA (F), majority owner of Chrysler Group LLC, plans to return Jeep output to China and may eventually make all of its models in that country, according to the head of both automakers’ operations in the region.

The Spin

This, of course, would be highly-damaging to the Obama campaign’s efforts to use the auto bailout “success” story to woo Ohio voters so the left-wing media machine is out spinning Romney’s referencing published media reports as a blatant attempt to skew a wire story.

The Detroit Free Press started its spin article with:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney falsely claimed Thursday night that Chrysler Group may move all Jeep vehicle production to China, drawing criticism from the Obama campaign, which said the Michigan native had blatantly skewed a news wire story.

Shortly after the news broke, Chrysler went into damage control mode as well. Chrysler’s vice president of communications Gualberto Ranieri said “Let’s set the record straight: Jeep has no intention of shifting production of its Jeep models out of North America to China.” A direct contradiction to statements made by Mike Manley, the president of the Jeep brand. Manly said that Fiat is in “very detailed conversations” with its Chinese partner, Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. (2238), about making Jeeps in the world’s largest auto market. Manley continued saying that they are “reviewing the opportunities within existing capacity” for a move to China and considering if they should “be localizing the entire Jeep portfolio or some of the Jeep portfolio.” That statement clearly shows that Jeep is considering moving its entire line to China – which is what Romney said.

Romney didn’t say Jeep was definitively moving the entire line. The presidential candidate simply echoed Mike Manley’s comment that they are thinking about it. The knee-jerk spin effort by the left is clearly a panic move and Chrysler is likely responding to pressure from the Obama campaign and/or groups friendly to the campaign such as unions.

DailyKos titled its spin piece “Chrysler Rebukes Romney Jeep to China Lie in Ohio!”. Yes, Chrysler rebuked, not Romney, but the press article. Also, Romney didn’t lie – DailyKOS got this one wrong. Shock.

Mainstream media outlets have echoed the sentiment of progressive extremist sites like DailyKOS  and the DemocraticUnderground. MiamiCBSLocal.com printed a story entitled “Romney makes bogus claim about Jeep in Ohio” reinforcing the liberal perspective.

Why this is important

If Bloomberg got the story wrong and/or mis-quoted a Jeep representative then a retraction or correction should be issued. The fact that a major news outlet reported the story and Romney simply said he was concerned about that story is in no way indicative of Romney being untruthful.

Fiat is following GM’s lead as General Motors had also announced that it would be increasing its manufacturing output in China instead of adding that output to American factories.

The fact that the President and liberal media were so quick to jump on this shows the amount of panic in the Obama campaign. A key portion of the Obama narrative is that the bailout saved American jobs and that Romney causes jobs to go overseas. If the Jeep brand president says they are thinking about moving the entire line to China, the narrative is gone – the president is left with only the killing of Bin Laden to take into the last week and a half of the election cycle and Ohio’s vote will likely center much more on the automotive sector than a dead terrorist.

America Deserves Better

The U.S. economy grew at a 2 percent annual rate in the third quarter.  The slight improvement was the result of more consumer and federal government spending.  Consumer spending improved from a 1.5 percent rate to 2 percent annual rate.

And federal spending surged.

Despite the modest increase, economic growth remains too weak to advance hiring.

This report is the last before Americans vote for president eleven days from now.

Mitt Romney has consistently criticized Barack Obama’s economic record, correctly noting that the pace of growth has slowed over the past two years.  This year’s 1.74 percent annual growth rate lags behind last year’s 1.8 percent growth.

Hoping to boost his image and enhance his chances at re-election, look for the Obama campaign to use the pickup in growth as evidence that the economy is improving.

When convenient to building his image in the minds of his followers, Obama and his loyal bastion in the openly biased American news media love to compare him to President Ronald Reagan.

As a result of Reagan’s economic policies, at this point in his presidency the U.S. GDP was experiencing a growth rate of 7.2 percent.

That was a real recovery.

Since the current recovery started approximately three years ago, the American economy has grown at the slowest rate of any post-recession recovery since World War II.

Under new leadership, with the proper policies in place, America can do better than this.

America deserves better than this.

Gallup poll shows most polls weighted incorrectly

Gallup released a poll indicating the make-up of the American electorate for the 2012 election today. If the survey results are accurate, almost every poll conducted so far of likely voters has been weighted wrong and the outcome of the election could be much different that pollsters are reporting.

The survey shows that while in 2008 voters were 54% Democratic and 42% Republican, the 2012 mix of likely voters is 49% Republican and only 46% Democrat. A massive swing by any measure and in complete disagreement with major polls that have Democrats weighted heavier by anywhere between 3 and 7 points. Even with those liberal weightings, Romney is besting the President or at least tied in most of the battleground states. If a more accurate weighting was used, these results would be entirely different.

The Gallup survey showed that even though ethnic demographics are largely unchanged for the 2012 election, voter alignment is shifting greatly. Internal polls by the Obama administration are likely showing similar results which explains the flurry of smallish, insulting attacks such as the “bulls**ter* name-calling from the President in recent days.

Hispanic voters are shown to increase by 1% and black voters to decrease by 1%. Male voters are showing a 1% as do younger voters. None of these small changes are enough to create the drastic change in the polling data.

When going back to 2004, the electorate was dead even at 48%-48% Democrat-Republican. 2008 looks like an anomaly where Republican leaners shifted to the left and helped Obama gain the White House. After being disappointed on the economy, failure to get Congress working again, a bad health care bill and mile-high deficits, a reversal of that shift is developing.

It appears as though previously leaning Democrats are now leaning Republican – something other pollsters have chosen to ignore.

An American Wife And Mother, Writes A letter To The First Lady

I recently received an E-mail with a letter from a woman, wife and mother living somewhere in America. The letter touched me so much that I had to print it for all to see. This letter shows that all women across America are not concerned with free birth control, but are concerned with their every day lives and how to make it better, proving that Obama is the one who is out of touch with what the every day American is concerned about.

Dear Michelle Obama,

As I watched your speech at the DNC Convention and now during the many stops along the campaign trail praising your husband. I thought also as a wife and mother that I would tell you about my family, along with many families just like mine all across America. Your husband promised a lot to us four years ago. Therefore, I would like to tell you how I feel now four years later. After all many of us did vote for him and his new direction.

Let me start by saying that your husband, President Barack Obama is within a whisper of destroying 236 years of freedom, liberty and the American family. All of which was paid for and protected by the ultimate sacrifice of young American lives, some in my own family. His Administration is a travesty that sickens me and leaves me bewildered at the ignorance of so many blind Americans. These are the useful idiots reinvented to allow the truth to be cloaked in a cloth of lies. They are ignorant to Mr. Obama’s real agenda or to the fact that when their duty is done, no longer useful, they too will be dispensed with. These are the poor fools who will never understand that their useful voice now will soon be silenced as they cry in the stagnant doldrums of their future.

Yes, Michelle Obama praise your husband. Bestow upon him countless accolades of love, adoration and profound devotion. Most of us, the wives and mothers of American families feel about their husbands and their children this same way. The difference is that our husbands are not the President, yours is! Even more relevant is the fact that our husbands do not take costly vacations in a big taxpayer’s plane. Nor do they spend countless hours on a golf course chasing a small white ball in a leisurely quest. Nor do they hob knob with the shallow Hollywood elite or on an endless Liberal show circuit seeking to be displayed in his egotistical manner as “eye candy.”

No Michelle our husbands and our families suffer under the governance of your husband, a buffoon with a radical agenda. An unknowing and empty man who taxes and dictates regulations and executive orders in unrelenting arrogance of the very laws that we true Americans hold in the highest regard. Our husbands search every day for the job that used to be our security. We see only the despair of a broken man silently angry at the deceit of your husband’s broken promises. At the very least, we understand that a promise never meant to be kept is a lie. A lie that is our lives reality of a slow and painful lost hope in the change that your husband laid upon our doorsteps.

Michelle, your husband’s administration of rules is destroying the very economy that wife’s and mother’s depend upon all across America for even a shadow of a normal life. Every day we pray for even a glimpse of that hope that your husband promised and failed us on. Yes Michelle praise Barack just as we praise our husbands. However, know this when you sit down tonight at dinner with your family. Because of what your husband Barack Obama and his team of minions have done to America. Know that I and so many others like me are left to stare at the shattered pieces of what were once our lives. I pray every day Michelle that America wakes up before our final hour. I pray that all the speeches of praise, of lies veiled as a promise, or his team of fools that shout deceit across our land are all silenced. I pray for an awakened America that will never put people like your husband on duty again.

You praise your husband Michelle; you tell us he is a good man. As a mother and a wife, can you tell us why your husband seeks to create a civilian army as powerful as those who protect us? Why, he placates and bargains our freedom with our enemy’s, promising flexibility after he is re-elected. Why he apologizes to evil for good? In God’s name as a mother and a wife, I ask WHY? Is my family along with the many families across America now suffering also to be stripped of our freedoms, then to be held captive as hostages in our own land? Why else would he require an army, or flexibility on the side of evil.

Yes Michelle, praise your husband and know this. We women know that your husband, Barack Obama, has spent our children’s future, destroyed our families and our jobs. Still he wants more? I pray Michelle for my family along with the countless other American families while I still can for our America to wake up. As a wife and a mother in my heart, I do believe that God has given us one final chance. I pray Michelle that on November 6th 2012 good Americans everywhere will allow us one more day that will live on in infamy. On that day I will thank God for that moving van in front of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
