Ambassador Rice Defends White House Watergate Style Lies on Benghazi Cover Up

How could Ambassador Rice explain an attack that she had no personal knowledge of?
Smells like a Watergate style cover up.

U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice has resurfaced after she told America that the attacks and subsequent murders of four American at the U.S. Benghazi Consulate was due to a spontaneous attack because of a You Tube video on five Sunday network news shows.  The nation now knows, and the White House knew then that the story Ambassador Rice spun for America was totally fabricated by the White House.  White House intelligence officials knew the truth within 24 hours.

Could her reemergence into the public eye be due in part to the increasing opposition in congress to her possible nomination by Obama for the soon to be vacated Secretary of State position?  With Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, early attempt to fall on the sword for the president, Rice’s loyalty may yet be her own undoing.

Secretary Clinton had pushed the You Tube narrative and it fell flat after Matthew Olsen, President’s own Director of National Counterterrorism admitted that the attacks on the Benghazi consulate were terrorist and possibly related to Al Qaeda activities. Most importantly, as it turns out, those White House officials as well as State Department and others were quite possibly watching the terrorist attack live via an overhead unmanned drone.

In December, Secretary Clinton will be appearing before congressional intelligence committees to explain her role as well as her and other State Department or White House Benghazi inconsistencies.

Then there are the president’ comments last week when he admitted in a White House press conference that Ambassador Rice was selected because she knew absolutely nothing about the chain of events.  Why would the president of the United States send someone who he admitted, knew absolutely nothing about the security, the attack, the pleas for help and the murders?  How could she explain an attack that she had no personal knowledge of?  Smells like a Watergate style cover up.

This play has been seen before by Americans who endured Watergate and the “long national nightmare which ensued. The nation saw how an administration could hide the truth, deny the act, and then cover up the illegal actions by stonewalling.   Yet in all of the intrigue, congressional investigations and articles of impeachment voted against President Richard Nixon, not one single American citizen lost his life!

So Ambassador Rice, you may feel that mainstream media networks will continue to provide ground cover for your “yes sir, anything sir,” attitude that is totally incredulous, but Americans want accountability.  Obama jetted away for a campaign fundraiser to Las Vegas the very next day, while the families of four Americans were being lied to by the White House.  The president left his credibility in the wind.

So, now Ambassador Rice surfaces in what seems to be an attempt to regurgitate the exact same inconsistencies and cover up narrative as if, telling a lie often enough will suddenly become the truth.  Not this time Ms. Rice.  Not good enough!.  Your oath of office should have more value than protecting a cover story.  Just ask the White House officials who went to jail because they lied to congress about their own culpability in the Watergate cover up.

Again, what was she thinking?

Did Susan Rice truly believe that after the Presidential election, America, the news networks and the congress would go on as business as usual?  Well, Ambassador Rice, America’s business is to find out what the truth really is and why the administration would allow a series of lies to fester in a climate of White House CYA political theatrics.

Four Americans, who had families and had loved ones, only, asked that their Commander in Chief would act like one and defend their lives. The administration reneged on its solemn duty.  The families that saw their loved ones return in coffins deserve more, far, far more than a circle of lies.

Maybe Ms Rice you need to be reminded that these were real people with real families. Their names were: Ambassador Chris Stevens, diplomat Sean Smith, and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty. 

These were brave men and not the consequence of “bumps in the road” as President Obama alluded to when discussing the attacks in Benghazi and emerging governments in Arab Spring countries during a Sixty Minutes on September 23rd.  This is not only tragic, it is pitiful.  The families are left this holiday season with more questions, and even more lies about how their decent and honorable family members tragically died.

The truth of Watergate did eventually emerge, a tireless Washington Post and two reporters, relentlessly pursued the truth, when other news organizations did not see a story.  Fox News is that current news organization that is tirelessly pursuing the truth about the White House Benghazi inconsistencies. They are matching up the administration’s changing timelines about what happened, when it happened and why no help arrived on the 11th anniversary of the worse terrorist attack in American history.

History has a way of repeating itself.  Forty years ago, Richard Nixon was reelected president of the United States.  Congress then went to work. Articles of Impeachment were voted on, and well, you know the rest of the story.

Fast forward to 2012, where Obama is doing victory laps and Ambassador Rice is apparently aiming for the Secretary of State seat now being kept warm by Hillary Clinton.  Well if conventional wisdom serves, perhaps, Ambassador Rice should be setting her sights more toward a congressional investigation witness seat.

Congress, the ball is in your court.  Call Ambassador Rice to testify in open hearings to tell the American people what she knew about the talking points, and who gave them to her and what the president knew.

Then after the dust and the lies have settled, The House of Representatives must do its solemn duty and call the president of the United States to testify to congress to tell the truth or face open charges of Impeachment.  

After all, it was Obama who threw down the gauntlet at his November 14th White House press conference and defiantly said, for those, “who has been critical of Rice’s comments, should “go after me.”  Well, Speaker John Boehner, there’s your cue!   America and the families are waiting Speaker John Boehner for the truth!

Thanksgiving Colorblind Civil Rights Gift – No Black Winners or White Losers

Rep. James E. Clyburn (D-SC) – attacks House Republicans as being racist for Susan Rice criticisms

Thanksgiving 2012 finds a nation that has changed dramatically since the end of the U.S. Civil War in 1865. Yet there are still those who want to continue fighting this war as if nothing has ever changed. There still remains an ongoing attempt to select racial winners and losers when a person’s conduct, professional or otherwise comes into question. The latest example has been U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s ineptness in presenting the White House cover up account of the U.S. Benghazi Consulate American murders.

Last week several U.S. senators, who happen to be white, questioned her statements to five Sunday network news shows, as being false, misleading and indefensible, they were attacked by the president first. Obama said they were picking on her, and implied that the poor defenseless black woman needed a male hero to defend her.

Then there was the Congressional Black Caucus chorus on Friday, November 16th, calling the U.S. senator’s criticism racist. Come on now. Look in the American mirror. This is an America that is way past defining itself as racial sub-cultures or ethnic sub-sets. Does one really believe that there is a need to have a Black Congressional Caucus cry out racism now?

Even Congresswoman Eleanor Norton Holmes, former chair of the Equal Opportunity Commission called the “racist charges” had no foundation when she appeared on Fox News, Monday, November 19th!

On Tuesday, Rep. James Clyburn, a Democrat, attacked nearly 100 Republican congressmen who sent a letter to President Obama, opposing a possible nomination of Susan Rice for Secretary of State. The congressmen cited her recent apparent incompetent behavior as the reason for their opposition. Congressman Clyburn to the rescue! He called the congressmen’s comments racist. There Clyburn goes again.

The need to define oneself as sub-cultures or subsets of America, in a 21st century America is indeed offensive to a one nation under God of 2012. The victims and the victimizers of the past are now buried in the past. If there was ever a need for something to be thankful for is that outdated stereotypes like racial caucuses, ethnic identifiers are assimilating into the one American melting pot.

Well, there is still Clyburn, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, the diminishing exceptions who are the race-based clingers. They cling to racial solutions for colorblind problems. They embrace easy simplistic gotcha assertions, like “that’s racist!” or “They hate blacks” or they keep blacks down!”

This behavior must be called out for what it truly is. This is race bating and hate mongering. Blacks and liberals engage in this practice to make political and racial hay. They use racial division as a pay day card for their elections, non-profit race bating organizations and television network talk shows. But America is tired and America must move on.

America must grow up and Americans of all colors must accept that bad attitudes, incompetent behavior, or irresponsible conduct should not be defended because of race!

So, enough is enough of this school yard nonsense. The shadow of a racist past in America is not the nation of 2012.

This nation does not need an affirmative action answer for every real or imagined problem or issue that besets American minorities. America has to realize that if there is a civil rights issue that confronts a person who feel wronged or rights have been abridged, then repair it with the same laws that any person who has his or her rights abridged.

This is not a nation that should continue to have two sets of laws and two sets of results. The law of the land should not be used to pick winners and losers as if it were some type of carnival game, where the deck is stacked.

What will it take for black officials or black people in general to understand that the America of the turn of the 20th century is not the America of today? If a black official screws up, maybe it’s because he or she is just a bona fide screw up.

America, both white and black is also tired of being tired. America is tired of having its citizens being discounted, diminished, and dismissed because of the sins of the father being placed on the backs of the sons and daughters if they are white.

Blacks, who are working hard to achieve and to find a place of respect and dignity, are also tired of being saddled with the “affirmative action” label when it was their determination and initiative which made them successful.

So the stereotypic labels have to end and with it the notion that there must be two sets of rules, two sets of applications and two sets of results that must continue into the 21st century.

Beginning now, not tomorrow or 2013, but now, America must build toward a colorblind civil rights, called American justice which is equal for all. When this happens it will be an American justice system united to produce color blind results with no black winners and no white losers.

That is a Thanksgiving holiday gift that all Americans can celebrate!

Why Democrats mask Susan Rice incompetence with White Racism charge

Was Susan Rice incompetent or thrown under the bus by President Obama and White House?

Liberals and democrats have now chosen to open their favorite boogieman door and take out the always convenient racism race card. This time, democrat leaders including the incoming Congressional Black Caucus leader, Cleveland democrat   Rep. Marcia Fudge (D.-Ohio), the incoming chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus went on the attack Friday, November 16th charging racism!  This time the targets were Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Senator Kelly Ayotte.

Out came the old tired and quite familiar race card.  “How dare these white senators and especially these white men attack this black woman!”  All one can say to these congressional women who sang this same familiar tune. Grow up!  This is not 1962, it is 2012.  Americans lives were lost and facts do matter!

Nearly 2 months ago, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice appeared on 5 national news Sunday talk shows selling a lie which covered up the truth of the murders of four Americans at the Benghazi consulate in Libya.  The administration lies have taken on their own life, and on Thursday, November 15th the republican senators demanded answers.

Yes, it does matter that Ambassador Rice covered up the lie about a You Tube video being the reason for the attack on the Benghazi Consulate. The administration it knew to be a lie. It was a fiction that President Obama knew was a lie, and avoided telling the truth about.  It was a lie that Obama’s former CIA Director David Petraeus knew as a lie 24 hours after the deadly 9/11 attack.  Yet, Susan Rice never offered even a scintilla of evidence about an Al Qaeda attack being the reason for the assassination of Americans.

So why go back to the same card game with Americans.  Why the double racial standard?

Why do congresswomen like Cleveland, Ohio congresswoman Marcia Fudge, incoming chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus feel it is necessary to state, “ It’s a shame that whenever anything goes wrong they pick on women and minorities!”
The answer is clear. 

The politics of racism practiced by liberals, by the president, and by white guilt ridden apologists is that they need America to continue to be divided.  They are now the true racists in an America that has moved on. This nation now has a president who is black.  Americans believe that job security, an approaching fiscal cliff and crushing debt is more important than finding imagined racist boogiemen hiding in America’s dark corners.

Susan Rice does not need to be defended on the basis of her race or on her gender.  Susan Rice as any other administration official that plays footloose with the facts concerning the deaths of Americans must be held accountable. There is no two-tier level of responsibility.  American does not have nor need a racial Affirmative Action type of imagined protection for minorities or for women.

If Congresswoman Fudge is so concerned about protecting women who are being subjected to discrimination, not gaze into Obama’s mirror?  After all, it is not senators McCain, Graham, or Ayotte, who are discriminating against women.  It is the hope and change President Obama, openly discriminates against women and embraces the “do as I say and not as I do” rule.  Women are paid up to 17 percent than their male counterparts in the White House!

So liberals and Congressional Black Caucus women, stop this nonsense about racism when the only problem of racism that seems to exist in this nation is a continued embrace of the race card.  How about working toward the day when a Congressional Black Caucus is not necessary.  What about demanding that public officials that lie to America and engage in indefensible incompetent behavior answer to it.

The truth, not fiction, is essential and must be investigated and the results placed before the American public.  It’s simple, race and gender is no defense against the truth. It is about the truth, and nothing but the truth.

This is the 12st century.  In the final analysis, America needs to know that when its sends its sons and daughters to fight a war or to place their lives in danger for this nation, their president will not cover up, will not deceive and will not ignore their sacrifice.

So, Susan Rice come forward and be a woman, and not hide from your conduct or let a president beat his chest like a prehistoric cave man protecting his women from the big bad imaginary republican dinosaurs.  After all, hopefully Obama did not nominate you as a black woman for a job.  Hopefully he nominated you as a woman capable of doing your job and defending your conduct on your own.

Reject the race card being played in your name, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, so that America can move onto matters which impact all Americans, colorblind and one nation under God.
