Leon Panetta, Political Hack

panetta

To say that Fearless Leader Barack Hussein Obama is having scandal problem would, indeed, be an understatement. There is not enough space at CDN to cover all scandals, so let’s look at one: the Benghazi cover-up. Let’s further focus on the Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta.

About the Benghazi attack, Panetta said:

“(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place. And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”

Panetta was referring to head of U.S. Africa Command General Carter Ham and to chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey when he made that statement to a Pentagon reporter.

But, regarding not “knowing what’s going on,” we have learned that CIA personnel at the Consulate annex, which was under fire for approximately 8 hours, were in constant radio contact with their headquarters. Also, two unmanned drones were sending real-time video images to Defense and State Department officials in Washington.

Did you know that Panetta was in the Army? There is one truism, one basic principle about ALL branches of the military, about ALL military personnel, about ANY situation: RESCUE! – NOW!. I can only suppose that Panetta forgot that basic principle when he became a political hack in order to further his career.

Testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee in February, Panetta said:

“I think with regards to those specific individuals that were involved in this attack there was a gap. We didn’t have the intelligence that would have given us a heads-up that this kind of thing was going to happen.”
“We’ve got a lot of resources that are there … but if you have an area where you don’t have resources there, if you don’t have good intelligence, then it’s going to create a gap.”

So Panetta, in CYA mode, blamed an “intelligence gap” for his non-response.

Panetta is living proof of what happens when one becomes a political hack.

But that’s just my opinion.

Benghazi Testimony: What Difference, At This Point, Does It Make?

Today the Right watched as the Left ignored the beginning of shocking and damning testimony from eyewitnesses on the ground during the 9/11 terror attacks in Benghazi. Testimony from Mark Thompson, acting deputy assistant Secretary of State for counterterrorism; Greg Hicks, former deputy chief of mission in Libya; and Eric Nordstrom, former regional security officer in Libya confirmed what we on the right have known almost from the very beginning: there was no protest. The YouTube video, for which its creator is still unjustly imprisoned, had nothing to do with the attack. Help was ordered to stand down not once, but twice. The Obama Administration knew this was an act of terror from the beginning.

The question is, if a Fact Tree falls in Leftist Forest, does it make a sound? While celebrations of vindication are beginning to stir among the Right and people are beginning to speculate on the political fallout for Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and others who were complicit in abandoning four Americans to die and then lying to the American public about it, I have to wonder what difference, at this point, does it make? When has the Left cared for facts? When has the Left embraced reality?

Indeed, the “coverage” in the mainstream media has been mostly devoted to smearing the whistleblowers and running cover for the Obama Regime. Since the “blame an obscure YouTube video” narrative has failed, the Left is now pretending it’s rational to blame sequestration (never mind the fact that it took place nearly six months after the attacks) for inadequate security though the State Department confirmed “budget cuts” had absolutely nothing to do with it. The Left in this country and their pet media will stop at nothing to ensure Obama and Clinton face no consequences for their corrupt, deadly actions.

The sad fact is, though it is imperative that the truth come out, we no longer live in a country where truth matters. While there was once a time that scandals of half this magnitude brought down presidencies, the Benghazi debacle will be but another notch in Obama’s belt of scandals he’s emerged from unscathed.

Still, all is not lost. While the impeachment he’s earned is little more than a pipe dream, we can use this disaster of a president to motivate us to crush the evil that is leftism. We can do the job the media refuses to, and hammer home the reality of the corruption, the devaluing of life, and the abandonment of Americans and American values that has been the hallmark of this presidency. We can remind midterm voters in 2014 and presidential voters in 2016 of what came to light today in addition to Obama’s countless other failures in hopes that, perhaps, it will eventually make a difference after all.

Republican Congressmen Want Answers On Benghazi

It seems someone in Washington is beginning to listen to We the People.  Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA), Chairman of the AppropriRep. Frank Wolfations Committee, and Congressman Jim Gerlach (R-PA), a Ways and Means Committee member, sent a letter to Secretary of State John “Lurch” Kerry telling him they want to speak with the thirty or so “invisible” Americans present in Benghazi the night of the attack on the consulate.  Kerry will refuse and Republican “leadership” will sandbag this untiRep. Jim Gerlachl it gets overridden by a new “crisis”, if We the People let them.  It is up to us to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

I urge everyone who reads this to get on their members of Congress and demand this be looked at and looked at seriously.  I wrote about this a few weeks go asking what happened and why these “investigating” committees weren’t talking to anyone who was actually on site at the time of the attack.  All we got was a song and dance cover-up from Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton; a “where was Elmo, er Barry?” moment from “outraged Republicans”; and an “oh, well, we asked” conclusion from Republicans in the end, as is “modus operendi” in government.  Fast & Furious comes to mind!!!

Neither party leadership wants the truth to come out, on this or any other “investigation” they do.  Gunrunning to our enemies is a serious matter and could possibly be at the root of this whole affair.  Again, Fast & Furious comes to mind!!  The other “conspiracy theory” out there is that Stephens was to be kidnapped and traded for the “blind sheik”, Omar Abdel Rahman, being held as the mastermind of the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center.  Either, neither, something else????   We don’t know and likely will never know if the political establishment gets their way.  In politics it seems the “one hand (D) washes the other hand (R)” method of “finding the truth” has never been more fashionable.  They come out with “clean hands” and We the People lose a little more ground in the battle for liberty, the soul of America.

We the People need to get behind these two men.  They have shown the courage and integrity to step up and do what they pledged to do in Congress.   We need to contact our own members of Congress and demand that they sign on to this and refuse to accept any more of the typical “Teaberry Shuffle” from the “leadership” of both political parties.  This article will be the second time my congressman hears about this issue from me.

This is how we get our government back.  As leaders step out of the shadows we get behind them and let them know We the People have their backs because Boehner and the other RINO’s, along with all Democrats, will be looking to stab them in the back as quickly and lethally as possible.  Boehner will look to make an example of them as he has done in the past, or simply ignore the matter.

We cannot allow any more patriots in Congress to be trampled underfoot by the corruption that pervades Washington D C (De Cesspool).  Boehner punished Tim Huelskamp, Justin Amash and several others for having the temerity to stand with We the People instead of the party establishment.  These people are the ones we need if we are to survive as a Republic.  When they stand up against the tyranny that is political party establishment politics they are standing up for US.  This is what so many of us demand; so when our demands are met we must respond with favorable fervor towards those who stand up for us.

TEA Party conservative voters, the 67% of We the People from 2009/2010, have put enough members in Congress to be able to overcome Boehner and his RINO henchmen on any issue.  Those TEA Party people registered as Democrats need to do the Eagle Fighting for Freedomsame with their member of Congress.  I know they tend to ignore us but now is the time to put more pressure on all of them.  Let all of them, in both political parties, feel the heat of primary challenges if they refuse to change the way they are dong things.

Write, call, or fax your congressman and senators.  Be polite but firm and insist they stop hiding behind party politics, and represent you the way they promised while campaigning, and uphold the Constitution as they swore an oath to do.  At the 2013 freshman orientation for Republicans John Boehner essentially told them that if they were there to represent their districts the door was in the back of the room but if they were there to “take care of business” then they could stay.

We the People cannot allow this to continue.  Burning phone, fax, and e-mail lines in Washington is the most effective way to accomplish this task right now.  My delegation members hear from me on a regular basis, sometimes with praise and otherEagle Changing Things I Cannotg Accept times “without” praise.

The 2nd Amendment issue is front and center right now and is proof of what We the People can do if we will stand with elected officials who stand up for us.  The “coming together” of local law enforcement and civilian patriots is extremely encouraging and an example of how we take our government back from those who have perverted the meaning and design of our founding fathers.

The typical Republican in Congress is a lily livered shill of the NWO globalists and will not honor their oath of office, and essentially no better than the Marxist Democrats.  We need to get behind those who will actually represent We the People and insure that they are not trampled under the foot of jack-booted thugs in both political parties.  Those who show the courage to speak out against the “leadership” of either party need, and more importantly DESERVE, the support of all citizens.  They are the true patriots in Washington!!!

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
