.... liberal groups were targeted as well ....

The Internal Revenue Service, under pressure after admitting it targeted anti-tax Tea Party groups for scrutiny in recent years, also had its eye on at least three Democratic-leaning organizations seeking nonprofit status.

Three?
Three!?!?

Quote :
On May 15, the White House released more than 100 pages of emails about the September 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya. The Los Angeles Times noted of the emails: "Even the very first version of the talking points suggests that the attack was inspired by the protests in Cairo over the anti-Muslim video, a perfectly plausible supposition at the time. That undermines the Republican claim that administration officials concocted the notion of a Benghazi protest to protect the president from a perception that Al Qaeda was ascendant again."
Indeed, the original version of the talking points produced by the CIA's Office of Terrorism Analysis stated:

The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the U.S. diplomatic post and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations.

5 takeaways from IRS report

Quote :
IRS agents weren't partisan

Republicans looking for a smoking gun on partisan motive will have to keep looking — the report stops short of calling the IRS intentionally partisan, even if the questions might have been inappropriate.

Most of the report focuses on reprimanding the IRS for choosing ineffective criteria that could be construed as partisan rather than focusing on a partisan motive. Only about 15 percent of the potential cases had the terms “Tea Party,” “patriots” and “9/12” in their organization name. The remaining cases were flagged for other reasons.

The report found that the narrow focus of the criteria “gives the appearance that the IRS is not impartial in conducting its mission.”

“Using the names or policy positions of organizations is not an appropriate basis for identifying applications for review by the team of specialists,” the inspector general said.

The report never directly accuses the IRS of bias, just the appearance of impropriety.

Despite the inappropriate search criteria, the majority of applications flagged by the Cincinnati office had indications of significant violations of tax policy. The report found that about 69 percent of the fully documented cases on the list were properly identified.

Still shitty, but I don't think this is much of a "scandal" either. Absolutely none of the groups were mistreated - no manufactured violations, no one was denied an application that qualified, etc. It was just a shitty search criteria in an attempt to deal with the huge influx of applications, and subsequent violations, post Citizens United. since the IRS doesn't have the manpower to investigate all applications:

Quote :
No plans to crack down on 501(c)(4) groups

The IG report reveals that it may become virtually impossible to investigate whether one of these nonprofits has crossed a line into pure political work.

No more than 49 percent of a group’s time is supposed be spent on political activities, but the IRS may now have no set standard to judge when a group does cross that line.

Nor has the agency been particularly eager to take on that responsibility.

The IG report remains silent in this report on how to better these tax-exempt groups when social advocacy turns political.

The inspector general only goes as far as urging the agency to establish guidelines but doesn't offer suggestions. At this point, given the blowup over the investigations of conservative groups, that may be politically impossible for a while.

Heads will surely roll, but Watergate this isn't, either.

Which they were doing to protect an undercover base, their agents, and their informants.

But fuck them, right? There's a Democrat in the White House!

The Tea Party and the IRS “Scandal” - The Actual Facts of the Case

Quote :
While it is well-known that the so-called IRS scandal has been used by Tea Partiers to bash the IRS, less well known are the actual facts of the case.

Some of the flagged groups did have their tax-exempt status delayed or did face some additional scrutiny, but not a single group has been denied tax-exempt status.

A May 14 draft report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that none of the 296 questionable applicants had been denied, “For the 296 potential political cases we reviewed, as of December 17, 2012, 108 applications had been approved, 28 were withdrawn by the applicant, none had been denied, and 160 cases were open from 206 to 1,138 calendar days (some crossing two election cycles).” (p. 14)

In fact, the only known 501(c)(4) applicant to recently have its status denied happens to be a progressive group: the Maine chapter of Emerge America, which trains Democratic women to run for office. Although the group did no electoral work, and didn’t participate in independent expenditure campaign activity either, its partisan nature disqualified it from being categorized as working for the “common good.”

The Inspector General’s report found that in the “majority of cases, we agreed that the applications submitted included indications of significant political campaign intervention.” (p. 10). In fact, only 91 of the 296, roughly 31%, of the applications reviewed for the report did not have “indications of significant political campaign intervention.” In other words, more than two thirds of those flagged for processing by a team of specialists had those indications.

A hilarious trifecta of quotes today from the knuckleheads on the right...Let's start with Mr Turtle...
Quote :
Senate minority leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said that the IRS case reflected a “culture of intimidation” in the administration. But he acknowledged on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that no evidence yet indicates that the White House ordered the behavior or tried to cover it up.

Next,a favorite tea party bigot and my personal favorite of the day Laughing ...
Quote :
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) asserted on CNN that a written policy had directed the IRS to target conservative groups, and vowed to find out “who wrote the policy and who approved the policy.” But he acknowledged that he had no direct knowledge that a written policy existed.
So just make up some crazy shit and then start an investigation to see if you can prove it? Got it! Rolling Eyes Perhaps we could hold the hearings in Salem,MA affraid

And last but not least former Gay rights nemisis now a believer due to his kid says...
Quote :
Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) said on ABC’s “This Week” that he believed it would be necessary to appoint a special counsel, independent of administration control, to unearth the facts.
Yeah,let's start another witch hunt like the 50 million we blew to get to the bottom of an act between 2 consenting adults. Is "Keyhole Ken" Starr still available? Surely we can afford it now that we're saving all that money by cutting food stamp benefits cheers

GOP "Scamdal"-mongering Just Reminds People Why They Hate Republicans
Quote :
Every once in a while, Republicans forget the first rule of being a parasite: Hide. For a while, they prospered in the relative obscurity of doing nothing, contributing nothing, and obstructing all attempts by the Obama administration to do Something, at the behest of their ultra-wealthy masters who don't need and don't want American government to work (or even really exist). Like barnacles on the Ship of State, they were known in the general public largely by the constant drag on progress they exerted, which had the ironic - and for them, desirable - effect of being blamed on the guy at the wheel.

For most people, the Republican Party's brazen corruption, hypocrisy, and treasonous lust to punish the nation for voting against them was an unseen irritant that only served to increase their annoyance with the President for not acting as though the difference in visibility were a difference in power. And then Republicans went ahead and reminded everyone that, yes, they are The Problem, and have been The Problem all along. At a time of economic hardship created by them and exacerbated by their refusal to pass any form of economic stimulus in years, they've opened the taxpayer spigot to fish for scandals to benefit themselves, and are publicly making a spectacle of the fact that they consider the US government their private property. Thanks for the reality check, assholes.

It has been a damn long time since this country had any problems that weren't directly caused or deliberately worsened by GOP psychopaths - certainly longer than my lifetime. Let's take a little stroll down memory lane:

Ronald Reagan sells missiles to Iran, an avowed enemy of the United States, in order to fund fascist terrorist insurgencies in Central America. The word for this is treason. GOP yawns. "What'r y'all gittin' worked up about? Stoopid libruls."

Reagan deploys US Marines to Beirut for no apparent reason, with no apparent mission other than to "establish a presence" (the actual, official term used for it) and 241 of them are killed in a terrorist attack. GOP yawns. "So...is this going to raise my taxes? No? Thank God, for a moment I thought something bad had happened."

Reagan finishes Presidency with an economy in ruins and the distinction of having the most appointees convicted of felonies in all of American history. GOP response: "BEST...PREZDINT...EVUH!!1!"

Bill Clinton deploys 160 US Army Rangers to Somalia to capture a warlord who has killed US and other troops protecting food shipments to starving civilians. The operation has UN Security Council backing, and is an extension of operations first undertaken under the Presidency of Republican George HW Bush. The rules of engagement are unclear and the operation goes awry, resulting in 18 US fatalities. GOP: "It's like Vietnam! Clinton is a madman throwing away American lives! He has betrayed our brave soldiers!"

Bill and Hillary Clinton were victims of real estate fraud in the 1980s - another glorious legacy of the deregulated Reagan era. When Republicans take over Congress, this results in the perpetual investigation of the Clinton administration, at an ultimate total cost to taxpayers of nearly $80 million, resulting in one resignation from federal office, one prosecution of a federal appointee, and zero convictions of administration appointees. GOP: "Sleaziest, most scandal-plagued so-called Prezdint evuh!!1! Now we gotta cut more edumacation and welfare, cuz fiscal responsimability."

Clinton appointee Vince Foster commits suicide. Numerous GOP-insisted investigations follow, and all conclude it was a suicide. GOP inference: "He was merdred!" Later, when Dick Cheney shoots man in the face, doesn't deny it, and isn't even investigated for it - "Uh, he prolly had it coming! He's prolly a tayrist!"

A Clinton White House appointee improperly requests and receives FBI background reports. It's such a heinous violation of confidentiality that it gets its own "-gate" - Filegate - but in the subsequent regime of George W. Bush, such violations become known as Tuesdays and Thursdays, and questioning them becomes grounds for being labeled a terrorist sympathizer. One Clinton appointee resigns over the action, and no evidence is ever found of criminal wrongdoing despite a thorough Ken Starr-brand colonoscopy of the administration. GOP response: "What izzis Nazi Jerminy? I thought this was Amurrca! Whar's ma freedom?"

President Clinton is sued while in office for sexual harassment. GOP insists he must give a sworn deposition (unlike Bush and Cheney's later statements to the 9/11 Commission, which were neither sworn nor even recorded - because Freedom). "A'course he has to, just like anybuddy else! What izzis Nazi Jerminy? I thought this was Amurrca! Whar's ma freedom?"

Clinton splits verbal hairs over the definition of sexual relations in deposition. GOP makes him second US President in history to have impeachment proceedings go to trial in the Senate. GOP response: "Liar!!1! Lie-uhhhhh! Impeach! Tyranny tyranny! No one is above the law! Whar's ma freedom?"

Five of nine Supreme Court Justices nullify vote of the American people and the people of Florida, installs George W. Bush in White House. GOP: "The people have spoken! Freedom! Yeee-hawr!"

Bush embarks on a program of using government power to impose his bizarre, fringe religious beliefs on the American people, appointing a religious fundamentalist Attorney General who covers the Statue of Justice in the DOJ headquarters in a burka because her tits are showing. Bans federal funding of embryonic stem cell research, just because he personally has a problem with it even though almost no one else does. Over several years, also introduces Creationist dogma into official National Parks literature, and has political appointees try to force NASA to shut up about global warming. GOP response: "Ah believe in Amurrca, and in Amurrca we believe in Freedom. Like ma Freedom to teach you about Jeeeeeesus with your own taxpayer money, whether you like it or not." Investigations: 0.

Bush/Cheney fires Clinton administration terrorism task force out of reckless partisan spite in first few months in office. 9/11 happens a few months later after report 'Bin Laden Determined to Strike in the US' is completely ignored and its author punished for daring to reach conclusions not approved in advance by regime Commissars. Resulting investigations of the White House: 0. Demands for impeachment: 0. Demands for resignation: 0. GOP response to 9/11: "God bless George W. Bush, heroic defender of freedom and Amurrca! How dare you not grovel on the floor before him in awe, lowly mortal?! How daaaaaare you???!!1!"

Bush regime sets up a network of torture camps where it disappears thousands of people for any reason it pleases, as long as it pleases, and tortures them for years on end - including a few children and people they knew to be innnocent of any wrongdoing, apparently just because they could and because they revel in pure evil. Several prisoners are brutally murdered in the process, and the rest are hidden from the Red Cross. In other words, the regime operates like a third world dictatorship, totally above all laws and human decency. Resulting investigations of the White House: 0 (the Taguba investigation into Abu Ghraib was explicitly prohibited from extending to Executive appointees). Impeachments: 0. GOP response: "Of course they tortured, murdered, disappeared people, and burned the evidence. Because Freedom!"

Bush cuts rich people's taxes over, and over, and over while declaring the US to be in a state of emergency requiring trillions of dollars of new spending. GOP response: "Thank Gowd we finally got a fiscally responsimable Prezdint!" Bush claims it will help the economy. It doesn't. GOP response: "Keep comin' with the tax cuts! We're bound to hit the helpful part sooner or later!"

Ari Fleischer responds to criticism of the regime by warning reporters to be very, very careful what they say under the New Order post-9/11, but realizes that sounds bad and has official transcripts edit it out. When the illegal editing is pointed out, he says it was an honest transcription error. Investigations: 0. Demands for resignation: 0. GOP response: (Yawn). What are we gonna do, investigate every time the White House falsifies government documents? If we did that, the tayrists win!

Bush regime commits worst acts of treason since the Civil War, embarks on program of falsifying intelligence and lying to Congress and the American people in order to justify invading Iraq - a country with no practical ability to attack the US or even its own neighbors. The UN refuses to support it. Intelligence professionals who contradict the Party line are retaliated against, as well as their families. Bush is eager to invade, seizing the first excuse to pull out weapons inspectors and order an attack. He is literally glowing with glee as he talks about doing so. Human lives lost: Hundreds of thousands of civilians and counting, and over 5,000 American soldiers. Contrast with reaction to Somalia. Made the world justifiably hate America for nearly a decade, drove countless people in the Muslim world to become terrorists that will continue to threaten our society, and destroyed all US moral authority. Financial cost: Over $1 trillion. Investigations: 0. Impeachments: 0. GOP response: "We're liberators! We're gonna turn the Middle East into Texas and convert them to Christianity, yahoo! Freedom freedom! We respect your freedom to die if you don't like it!"

Top criminals involved in Enron collapse intimately involved with highest levels of Bush White House and Republican Party. Investigations into these relationships: 0. Impeachments: 0. GOP response: "What, can't a guy have long, deep financial, political, and personal relationships with a multi-billion-dollar criminal fraud conspiracy without being investigated in any way, shape, or form? It's not like this is Whitewater - this is a Republican we're talking about!"

Bush regime issues fake terror alerts to bolster poll numbers during 2004 election. It happens like clockwork - dip in polls, terror alert. Dip in polls, White House says we're on the verge of Armageddon. Investigations: 0. Impeachments: 0. GOP response: "What's with all the whacky conspiracy theories, you silly libruls? Yer crazy. These reports about terrorists imminently planning to hijack the Space Shuttle are clearly credible!"

Bush regime attempts to redefine fast food work as "manufacturing" to bolster economic stats. Investigations: 0. GOP response: "Well sure it's manufacturing! They put the lettuce, burger, and tomato on the bun and then put another bun on it - same thing as putting together a car in a Ford factory! Stoopid libruls, you know nothing about bidness.

Bush sets bar to unprecedented new lows for unqualified crony appointments, dishing out critical federal positions (like FEMA director) like party favors to random incompetents with no experience who are family friends or cronies of political allies. One of them resigns after he contributes to the preventable post-hurricane deaths of hundreds of Americans in New Orleans after refusing the aid of foreign ships just off the coast in order to work on setting up corrupt no-bid contracts for political cronies. Investigations into the Bush White House's crony appointments: 0. Impeachments: 0. GOP response: "Niggers should learn to swim."

Bush White House legal advisors say Bush is a King appointed by God with the divine right to do whatever he wants, is above the laws of mere mortals, and (yes, they literally said this) has the authority to lawfully order a child's testicles crushed with a hammer. Investigations of the White House: 0. Impeachments: 0. GOP response: "All Hail the Glorious Leader Bush, beloved of God! Death to his blasphemous doubters! I just love his Small Gubmint conservatism!"

Bush sends the IRS after the NAACP. Investigations: 0. Impeachments: 0. GOP response: "It's about time someone put them in their place. Uppity n-...err...libruls."

Bush regime politicizes the DOJ, firing US Attorneys who refuse to engage in politically-motivated prosecutions of the regime's Democratic opponents. Finally an investigation occurs in 2007, thanks to a Democratic majority in Congress, in the next-to-last year of the regime, but - of course - does not extend into the White House, because that would just be too partisan. Since this is a Republican regime, no independent investigation occurs into whether criminal activity took place - it's just a low-broil scandal followed by a handful of resignations, including of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. You know, the guy who declared torture legal and totally got away with it. GOP response: "I wish you libruls would stop all these politically-motivated Congressional investigations, we're drowning in 'em! There's been a whole one since Bush took office - what is this, the Salem witch trials?"

Bush regime ignores Congressional subpoenas whenever they feel like it, cavalierly citing Executive Privilege more than every other administration in US history combined. Cheney refuses subpoenas on the grounds that he personally is the Fourth Branch of US government, and exempt from the US Constitution. Investigations: 0. Impeachments: 0. GOP response: "If you want to know something, you should ask the Glorious Leader nicely, prostrate on the floor in front of him and praising his joyous name, not be all subpoena-y. Ya big meanies."

CIA is ordered to burn all videotapes of their torture of terrorism suspects to hide evidence that could be used against them and their superiors in war crimes prosecutions. This is called obstruction of justice, and they admitted it. Invesigations: 0. Impeachments: 0. GOP response: "Phew! That's a relief. Freedom is now safe from human rights and rule of law.
Bush and Cheney publicly admit and brag about committing torture. Investigations: 0. Impeachments: 0. Criminal prosecutions: 0.

Bush's total deregulation of banks and Wall Street, and flooding the stock market with speculative money through tax-cut giveaways to the rich results in the most massive fraud in history - the bundling and false quality-labeling of worthless mortgages and then sale of those bundles as securities. The US economy teeters on the verge of imminent Soviet-style collapse thanks to Bush's economic and fiscal policies. To avert the crisis, his Treasury secretary hands out trillions of dollars to the same banks who committed the fraud, without condition and without changing the policies that created it. Then Bush leaves power with the national economy and government in ruins. Congressional investigations into the Bush White House due to the crisis: 0. Impeachments: 0. Criminal investigations into the Bush WH: 0. GOP response, months before Obama took office: "The Obama Recession is in full swing!"

Bush leaves power having presided over the most unhinged, murdering, criminal, lying, thieving, psychotic regime in US history, having daily wiped his ass with the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, democracy, the Enlightenment, the Renaissance, science, history, Western civilization, and common decency every day for eight years. Merely the publicly-known crimes against humanity and the republic by Bush and his associates would fill a phone book, and everyone in the fucking world other than Republicans in the US hated and still hates them with the fury of a thousand exploding stars. Final stats on Bush regime: No top White House official, let alone Bush himself, ever compelled to testify under oath about anything; Dick Cheney not even questioned about the criminal activities of his aide Scooter Libby or shooting a guy in the face; no impeachments; no investigations directly into the White House whatsoever, under any circumstances. Final GOP word on the Bush regime: "Prezdint Bush made me proud to be Amurrcan! Those were the days! Let's go back to them!"

Black man becomes President of the United States. GOP response, day one onward: "FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK! TyrannY! KENyan Soshlist Niggertude!1!! Whar's ma freedom! Whazziz Nazi Jerminy? His blackness is takin away ma freedom! Like Hitler!"



I'll skip all the treasonous fuckery they've engaged in since then, since it's basically been a monotonous shriek of psychotic criminal behavior, paranoid conspiracy theories, pathological compulsive lying, and doing everything humanly possible to destroy America short of hacking nuclear launch codes (and they don't do that probably just because they don't understand numbers). Suffice it to say that they adamantly refuse to allow their rich financiers to pay one single penny more of taxes to this country that has been so unbelievably good to them, and repeatedly threaten the violent overthrow of the United States of America and the murder of the President if somehow their obstruction is overcome and the taxes of their masters are raised from effectively zero to 3%. Meanwhile the whole nation suffers as a result.

And into this context - try to keep in mind all the shit that's gone before as I say this - they're launching a sweeping investigation into What Obama Knew and When He Knew It about the actions of an IRS official he fired instantly upon being informed of the guy's actions, for investigating the Tea Party (a hyperpartisan, for-profit astoturf / terrorist-affiliated organization) because it claims to be a tax-exempt, non-partisan, non-profit citizens group. So now the focus is ironically no longer the Obama administration, who had been in the spotlight for years, but rather on the GOP who has returned to Clinton era form by wasting everyone's time and money manufacturing "scamdals" while they laugh in contempt at the very idea that they would spend taxpayer money to benefit the nation rather than further obstruct, erode, and destroy it.

Let's put that in explicit perspective: The GOP is spending more time and money investigating the treatment of the Tea Party by the IRS than they spent investigating all eight years of ceaseless, brazen criminal activity, treason, and the deliberate destruction of the American economy by the Bush regime, combined. And yes, these people still call themselves Americans.

We remember who you are, you pack of thieving slimeballs. We remember what you've done. And we see what you're doing now.

Ah ha!
Examiner.com Publishes Then Deletes an Unbelievably Deranged Wingnut Conspiracy Fantasy
They've deleted it from their site now, but if you hurry you can still see Examiner.com's freaky anti-Obama conspiracy fantasy in the Google web cache: Was President Obama High on Coke While Benghazi Burned?
Quote :
"Arlington Conservative" is Dean Chambers, the delusional nutbag responsible for one of the funnier websites in recent memory, Unskewed Polls. And he based his crazed hallucinatory article on something he read at Hillbuzz.org, where they're even more unhinged than Dean Chambers.

It's an absolute classic in the annals of whacked out right wing gay-sex-and-drugs fantasizing, bubbling up from the sub-Alex Jones far right. It has everything; homophobia mixed with a simultaneous sick fascination with gay sex, thinly buried racism, sheer insanity inspired by blind hatred turned up to 99. So here's the full text for posterity:
Quote :
Quote :
While our consulate in Benghazi was attacked during the night of September 11 of last year, our fearless leader was allegedly hiding away somewhere getting "high as a kite" on cocaine. This is the speculation of Kevin DuJan, a self-described "gay conservative political analyst" writing for a publication called HillBuzz. DuJan states that his claim, which he appears to make based on knowledge and experience of drug addicts, explains the president being missing for most of the evening during the attack on Benghazi.

DuJan explains his theory, writing, "If you've ever known anyone who is a drug addict, you'd see it's obvious that Barack Obama was high on cocaine the night of Benghazi; it is the only logical explanation for his disappearance and the White House's refusal to comment on what he was doing at the time. Since this was a night of great crisis for our country, the only logical reason that the White House won't explain where the president was is if this man was high as a kite on illegal narcotics at the time."

DuJan also suggests the president sought out gay entertainment when he left the next day for Las Vegas, writing that Obama was, "jetting off to fabulous Las Vegas for a fun-and-games fundraiser event he had scheduled there (where, it also should be noted, not only Chippendales but also Thunder From Down Under male revues are regularly held...which certainly establishes the appeal of heading to Las Vegas instead of managing a national crisis back in Washington for this particular president).

DuJan cited an article by Rich Lowry in Politico about the time-line of events the night of the attack and the next day. Obama was seen, "sober on 9/11/12 at 5pm EST when he met with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey, DuJan writes, "I have never been able to shake the feeling that Barack Obama was woefully disappointed when he learned that Gen. Dempsey has nothing to do with either marijuana or penises in his capacity as the Chairman of the "Joint" Chiefs of "Staff". But, I presume he would not have done cocaine before meeting with these two military men. Obama appears to have been still functional and ambulatory at 5pm that day."

DuJan says Obama found out US Ambassador Chris Stevens died and disappeared to somewhere to go get high on cocaine. Obama was allegedly not seen again until 10 P.M. that night when he spoke with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the phone. Obama spoke at 10:35 A.M. The next day when he made the statement about the attack on Benghazi being caused by the YouTube video.

Suggesting again the gay theme as well as cocaine use, DuJan wrote, "After reading Lowry's article, my good friend Justine in California emailed me to ask whether I thought Obama was having sex with Reggie Love during the "missing hours" and if that's where he was. Justine was an actress and model in Los Angeles back in the late-1970s and ran in the same circles as friends of closeted gay men like Rock Hudson...so her first instinct with Obama and Benghazi is that he and Reggie Love were getting at it and Obama didn't want to be disturbed."

Despite speculating about Obama having gay tendencies, DuJan stated he believes the idea of getting high on cocaine that night is a much stronger explanation for Obama's absense during those hours. DuJan explained, "once you take drugs you are pretty much on another astral plane for however long it takes for the drugs to leave your system. I've sadly watched a lot of incredible people in the nightlife scene ruin their lives with cocaine over the years, and once these people got high they stayed high until the drugs metabolized enough for them to function. In fact, a few years ago I dated a day trader here in Chicago who (unbeknownst to me at first) would use cocaine in the evening when he came home from work...and he'd process the drugs in his system enough to be back at his office early the next morning."

DuJan offered to retract his story in exchange for an explanation from the president on why he was missing during those hours, writing, "I would gladly retract this story if the White House would sufficiently explain Barack Obama's whereabouts during those missing hours and prove he was not out of his mind on cocaine at the time (or gluttonously engaged in gay sex, as my friend Justine believes)."

DuJan closed his article with this question: "Do you think it's better for the White House to say the president's location is "irrelevant" or for them to admit "the president was high on cocaine and/or having gay sex in his private quarters"?"

YEAH! That's how you do it, Breitbart. No half measures for these brave patriots!

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) accused Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Wednesday of being complicit in the terror attacks on the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya last year and the deaths of four Americans, including the late Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Right-wing conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney asked Gohmert on Gaffney’s radio show this week what he thought of McCain’s recent trip to Syria — which Gaffney described as McCain “hobnobbing with Jihadists” — and wondered whether “we’re going to get a proper investigation of the Benghazi-Gate scandal,” a “scandal” Gaffney said he believes “Sen. McCain’s bad advice got us into.” Gohmert agreed that McCain is to blame for Benghazi because McCain supported and advocated for the U.S. led war in Libya that ultimately helped Libyan rebels oust Muammar Qaddafi:

Quote :
GOHMERT: Yeah and then we know if it had not been for Sen. McCain and President Obama being for what we knew at the time included al-Qaeda in the rebel forces then we would still have a U.S. ambassador and three others alive today because Benghazi would not have happened. But by giving power to the rebel forces that included al Qaeda that brought that whole mess about and helped create problems in Tunisia and Algeria. So I’m not sure what to think about his going to Syria. If history is any lesson the people he met with he wants us to help should be very careful about what Sen. McCain’s support could mean for them.

Listen to the interview clip HERE
Full transcript:

Quote :
GAFFNEY: Two episodes that are on our mind, one is Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has been in Syria recently hobnobbing with Jihadists about the necessity of the United States of not only continuing to support them in various ways but to fund them and to arm them and basically to start using its military forces to protect them. I’d like to get your thoughts on that sir as well as your current thinking about whether we’re going to get a proper investigation of the Benghazi-Gate scandal, one of the imbroglios that I believe Sen. McCain’s bad advice got us into previously.

GOHMERT: Well exactly and I’m not sure what to think about his trip apparently to Syria. We had seen his tweet about meeting with Qaddafi in Libya at his ranch and then he said “Oh no somebody else must have tweeted from his phone.” But apparently there had been meetings with Qaddafi before yet they came after Qaddafi, he was one of the early ones to sign on to going after Qaddafi.

GAFFNEY: So he was for him before he was against him as they say.

GOHMERT: Yeah and then we know if it had not been for Sen. McCain and President Obama being for what we knew at the time included al-Qaeda in the rebel forces then we would still have a U.S. ambassador and three others alive today because Benghazi would not have happened. But by giving power to the rebel forces that included al Qaeda that brought that whole mess about and helped create problems in Tunisia and Algeria. So I’m not sure what to think about his going to Syria. If history is any lesson the people he met with he wants us to help should be very careful about what Sen. McCain’s support could mean for them.
Here's hoping we see gramps McCain on the Sunday talk circuit cheers

Fox News Just Keeps Pumping Out Dishonest Propaganda About Benghazi

Quote :
Fake story watch

The relentless Fox News propaganda about Benghazi never stops, and as all of the allegations pushed by Fox and the GOP (they’re pretty much the same thing, of course) have ended up thoroughly debunked, they’re now reduced to the mindless repetition of blatant lies, simply trying to trick anyone gullible or stupid enough to still respond with outrage to their Pavlovian Benghazi invocation: Fox’s Katie Pavlich Smears Clinton With Benghazi Lie.

     
Quote :
Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich smeared Hillary Clinton by claiming that she lied in a speech honoring the victims of the September 2012 attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya. But Pavlich is distorting Clinton’s remarks.

   Fox & Friends covered the announcement that NBC’s entertainment division is planning to air a new mini-series focused on Hillary Clinton’s “life as a wife, mother, politician and cabinet member” sometime before 2015. Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich used the segment as an opportunity to smear Clinton, saying:

    PAVLICH: Although Diane Lane is a fantastic actress, I doubt she can act as well as Hillary Clinton did when she lied about that YouTube video in front of flag-draped caskets of Americans as they came home from being killed in Benghazi. So it’s going to be really hard for her to top that performance.

Hillary Clinton didn’t lie about anything, but Fox’s Katie Pavlich certainly is. In her remarks, Clinton was referring to the wave of protests and violence at US embassies across the Middle East after the spread of that infamous anti-Muslim video, and did not conflate the video with the Benghazi attack at all:

   
Quote :
This has been a difficult week for the State Department and for our country. We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with. It is hard for the American people to make sense of that because it is senseless, and it is totally unacceptable.
They never get tired of feeding the morons who bought into this. Rolling Eyes If Hillary runs they'll be beating this dead horse for the next 3 years. Meanwhile,we'll be laughing our heads off and making fun of them all the way to her inauguration. Very Happy

Benghazi Conspiracy Rally On Capitol Hill Attracts Dozens Of People
Quote :
WASHINGTON, DC — The first anniversary of the Benghazi tragedy was supposed to be the time for conservatives around the country to descend on the Capitol by the thousands, demanding that Congress reveal the truth. Less than one hundred bothered to show up.

The “Justice for Benghazi” rally was meant to be a joint effort between the Patriots4America and Special Operations Speak — two groups that have for months now been hammering establishment Republicans for what they see as not enough action to unveil what really happened in Benghazi, Libya last year. Special Operations Speak was behind a series of ads and petitions demanding that Speaker of the House John Boehner appoint a special committee to investigate the Obama administration cover-up of the attack and the deaths of four Americans including Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. According to organizers, as many as 5,000 people were expected to show up on the Hill and make their voices heard.

At the 12:30 PM start time for the rally, though, there wasn’t very much rallying going on. Instead, there were only a handful of people gathered near the open lawn that was meant to be barely containing thousands of supporters. Many of them were hiding from the ninety-five degree weather in the shade, jostling to have their picture taken with former Rep. Alan West (R-FL) who was there for an earlier event. Several of those milling about lamented that technical difficulties had prevented the organizers from setting up their audio equipment until the time when the protest was supposed to begin.

lol!

A Deadly Mix in Benghazi
Quote :
Months of investigation by The New York Times, centered on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who had direct knowledge of the attack there and its context, turned up no evidence that Al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault. The attack was led, instead, by fighters who had benefited directly from NATO’s extensive air power and logistics support during the uprising against Colonel Qaddafi. And contrary to claims by some members of Congress, it was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam.

Just saw the headline. Haven't had a chance to read it yet, but no real surprise. The only "scandal" was US forces trying to maintain an undercover CIA operation.

Seriously, fuck the GOP. The level of partisan bullshit is off the fucking scale. This has been a demonstrable witch hunt for months, all at the expense of taxpayer money and national security.

New Republican report essentially agrees with the White House concerning Benghazi. Wait, a Republican report?
Quote :
Courtesy of Think Progress:  

In a new report released on Tuesday, the House Armed Services Committee concludes that there was no way for the U.S. military to have responded in time to the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya to save the four Americans killed that night. In doing so, the report debunks entirely a right-wing myth that says the White House ordered the military not to intervene.

For months after the attack that resulted in the death of U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens, conservative media was awash in reports that on the night of the assault the Obama administration at some point ordered the military not to take action that would have saved lives. This supposed “stand down order” led to a bevy of right-wing conspiracies about why the President and his administration had let the Americans die. “

Who told the SEALs to stand down?” Rep. Steve King asked in Nov. 2012, in just one of many interviews with Republicans referring to the response to Benghazi as “worse than Watergate.” As Media Matters reports, Fox News cited reports of a stand-down order no fewer than 85 times during prime-time segments as of June 2013. As the new report — which the Republican majority of the committee authored –makes very clear in its findings, however, no such order ever existed. “There was no ‘stand down’ order issued to U.S. military personnel in Tripoli who sought to join the fight in Benghazi,” the report says, noting that the military was not positioned to respond to the attack.

“Given the military’s preparations on September 11, 2012, majority members have not yet discerned any response alternatives that could have likely changed the outcome of the Benghazi attack,” the report concludes.

And another Right Wing talking point dies a lonely ignoble death.  

Now while you are trying to digest the fact that his committee just took a giant dump all over the GOP strategy to smear Hillary Clinton in 2016, you might also like to know that even over at Fox News there are some breaking ranks with the "Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi" attacks.

Courtesy of Media Matters:

Without fanfare, Fox News host Megyn Kelly finally acknowledged that the network's campaign to sink Susan Rice's potential nomination to President Obama's cabinet was rooted in fundamental dishonesty.

During a discussion with Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) on the February 11 edition of her Fox News show, Kelly referenced a House committee report released that day, and admitted that Rice's talking points reflected CIA intelligence that "the attacks in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the embassy in Cairo":

Hey it just occurred to me that this cable news station does nothing but lie.

KELLY: Let me ask you about DOD [Department of Defense]. Because I know your report concludes that DOD officials believed nearly from the onset that this was a terrorist attack and not some sort of a protest gone awry. Now, I want to get specific, because so many people have said, 'So then why did Susan Rice go out and talk about protests? Why did she mention a video?' But the CIA talking points, the very first draft that went out and was circulated, that Susan Rice ultimately was provided, that top officials ultimately saw, talked about a protest. They did. The CIA actually came out, I want to look at it here, and said this is a draft from September 14th, 11:15 am, 'We believe based on currently available information that the attacks in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault.' So, tell me, does that -- does it or does it not answer the question about how our officials started to come out and talk about protests and the video?

Kelly's admission that the administration's talking points were not manipulated for political reasons marks the devastation of yet another Benghazi myth hyped by the right-wing media

And just like that, the Right Wing attack machine realizes it is fresh out of ammunition.

Well hey, on the plus side the Republicans still have Monica Lewinsky.

Oh they are so screwed.

While admitting that there was no stand down ordered, it also admitted there was no capable military response that would have changed the outcome, but blamed that on the administration, saying the area was super duper dangerous and we should have been prepared.

Forgetting though, that they had no problem cutting funds for security, certainly weren't calling it out due to the supposed security risks, weren't making the case it was more dangerous than any other embassy in the area, and had no problem even traveling there in the months beforehand.  

The whole thing remains demonstrable bullshit.  

I found this recently, he brings up some good points:

The Benghazis the GOP Will Never Touch

Quote :
The Rude Pundit was going to write a long, graphic, stomach-churning piece about various Republicans, like Darrell Issa, Lindsey Graham, and Trey Gowdy, doing horrible things to themselves and each other sexually using the bones of dead U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens as implements of penetration. There would have been dildo talk, there would have been cries of pain and joy, there would have been gushes of ejaculate and feces all over one another and all over the hearing rooms of the Congress and all over the media and all over their base, who just eat it up, and maybe even all over Hillary Clinton. It would have been vile and depraved, and some of you might have found it shocking and funny, and some of you might have found it shocking and gross, and more than a few of you would have been turned on, and perhaps some of you might have taken notes for use later. That's the kind of service this blog offers.

It would have all been written as a metaphor about the GOP's monomania about What Happened at Benghazi, something that really has no relation anymore to what happened at Benghazi, at that American consulate in Libya some twenty months ago, when four Americans were killed in the chaos of terrorist attacks and riots over whatever people were rioting about. The metaphor would have demonstrated, through nauseating imagery, exactly why Republicans are still beating this drum, even though the drumhead was worn out and torn a long time ago. Yeah, all of that was loaded and cocked and ready to fire.

And then, out of curiosity, the Rude Pundit was reading a bit, and this story came up: "4 Dead, 24 Wounded in Weekend Chicago Violence." It's about how many people were murdered or hurt, mostly by gunfire, in the Windy City just this past Saturday and Sunday.

If this was being written last Monday, the headline would have been "43 Shot, 5 Killed, in Spate of Weekend Violence in Chicago."

If it had been the week before last, the headline would have been "At Least 8 Dead, 44 Wounded In Weekend Shootings."

And on and on heading backwards for as long as you care to look.

In other words, there's at least a Benghazi every weekend in Chicago. Sometimes it's twice a Benghazi. Yet there are no congressional hearings about the dead Americans in Chicago. There's no admonishment of politicians for having policies that contribute to the violence, like the nation's lax gun laws (yeah, Chicago's got strict gun control, which totally doesn't prevent people from getting weapons an hour away). There's no movement on the federal government's part, through action by Congress, to pass things like the Youth PROMISE Act, which at least would establish ways to try to deal with the violence that plagues so many places.

The Latest Benghazi Freak-Out in 10 Sentences

Quote :
1. First things first: this memo should have been released earlier, and conservatives are fully justified in asking why it took a FOIA request to finally shake it loose.

2. That said, as an adviser for "strategic communication"—what the rest of us call spin—Ben Rhodes' job is explicitly political, providing guidance on how to put the administration's foreign policy actions in the best light.

3. Nine hours before Rhodes sent his email, the CIA had provided its assessment of what caused the attacks in Benghazi: "We believe based on currently available information that the attacks in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the US Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the US consulate and subsequently its annex."

4. The Cairo protests, in turn, were inspired by the YouTube video "Innocence of Muslims," which is why Rhodes mentioned the video in his memo.

5. As it happens, it turned out that there were no protests earlier in the day in Benghazi—but at the time, that was what the CIA believed.

6. However, multiple sources—including McClatchy, Al Jazeera, the New York Times, and then deputy CIA director Michael Morell—have confirmed that anger toward the YouTube video did play a role in motivating the initial attacks.

7. Multiple sources also confirm that that the Benghazi attacks were opportunistic—organized hastily to take advantage of the Cairo protests, not planned days or weeks ahead of time.

8. Susan Rice, in all her Sunday show appearances, was properly cautious about the role of the video, the nature of the attacks, and the fact that everything she said was tentative and based on "the best information we have to date."

9. Like any administration, the Obama White House wanted to put the best face on its Middle East policy, and there's no question that their public statements were designed to do just that.

10. Nevertheless, the Republican theory that Obama was afraid to blame Benghazi on terrorism has never really made any sense; there's simply never been any evidence of anything more than a fairly routine amount of spin in the aftermath of the attacks.

Full of sound and fury, but still signifying nothing.  But keep wasting taxpayer money.

The GOP hunt for a Watergate-scale scandal continues

Quote :
I’ve gotten the sense that they’re making whatever they can out of Benghazi not because they really believe that they’ll find some criminality if they keep searching, but just because it’s all they’ve got. To their chagrin, this administration hasn’t had a major scandal on the scale of Watergate or Iran-Contra. While scandals like those got more and more serious the more they were investigated, the opposite happened with the ones in this administration: the closer we looked, the more it became apparent that we were talking about simple screw-ups, not corruption and malfeasance. That’s what happened with every one of the mini-scandals, from Solyndra to the IRS to Benghazi. The administration even managed to dispense $787 billion of stimulus money without so much as a hint of theft or double-dealing, which was a pretty remarkable achievement.

If Republicans had anything better to work with to show America that Barack Obama really is the pulsing heart of evil at the center of an administration riven with criminal wrongdoing from top to bottom, they wouldn’t be crying wolf at every new Benghazi email they get their hands on. Even after all this time, the “cover-up” they claim occurred wasn’t actually covering anything up, which is kind of the whole point of a cover-up. Yes, the White House was spinning in those first few days when it was still unclear exactly what had happened in Libya, spinning for all it was worth, to show how “resolute” and “strong” they were. They wanted to make sure no one thought there was any “broader failure of policy.” And did they mention that President Obama is strong and steadfast? Oh yes, he most certainly is. That may be silly, but it isn’t a crime.

GOP already using their #Benghazi committee to raise money


Shot
Quote :
   Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) on Wednesday morning urged his fellow lawmakers not to use the investigation he is leading into the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, to raise money, calling it a subject that "transcends politics."

Chaser:

   Minutes earlier, the National Republican Congressional Committee sent out a fundraising email tied to Gowdy's role leading a select committee to investigate the attacks.

By the way, even though they are fundraising off the committee, and are making a big deal about Gowdy leading it, they still haven't actually technically created it. But who cares about little details like that when there's cash to be made?

All of which, of course, has absolutely nothing to do with the Benghazi consulate attack.

Correct! You have accurately perceived that the article I quoted is not about the attacks on the Benghazi consulate, but rather the GOP's feigned, hypocritical, and politicized concern of it.  Somewhere out there is a very proud second grade English teacher.

I know it's a shock, but not everything is about you. I was referring to the GOP's endless and exhaustive witch hunt that already outed the CIA annex as well as numerous undercover contacts throughout the region, the needless sacrifice of national security as a result, its complete and utter inability to find anything worthwhile, and the fiscally/security minded conservatives who are nowhere near as concerned about either as they actually claim.  Wait... after writing that last bit, maybe I was was talking about you.
