Journalists fear covering the Benghazi story, don’t want to lose access (favored crony status)
It’s perfectly reasonable to expect the White House to stonewall the Benghazi investigation. There are fears that whatever happened that night might reflect poorly on the president, and perhaps even more importantly now, on Hillary Clinton who wants to be president. It makes sense that a White House which plays hardball all the time, plays hardball with reporters.
It doesn’t make it right however. Some reporters, many who have long cheered this president are starting to speak out, softly.
I have no idea what happened on September 11th of 2012, right before the presidential election. But I’d like to know more. I think the country would like to know more.
On July 31, CNN’s The Situation Room broadcast a portion of an interview conducted by reporter Arwa Damon with a suspect in the Benghazi attacks. The suspect revealed to Damon that no investigator has attempted to contact him regarding his involvement in that deadly assault. The following day, CNN’s Drew Griffin broke the news that more than 30 CIA agents were on the ground in Libya on the day of the attack and they are being pressured by the spy agency to not reveal to reporters or congressional investigators what they know of the events of that night. Some CNN reporters are reportedly fearful now that their access to the White House will be hampered following their probing into a story that members of the Obama administration would prefer remain uninvestigated…
…“I would suggest it’s not an accident that those who have been given a lot of access to the president have generally been AWOL when it comes to stories that might reflect poorly on him,” the source, who did not wish to be identified, continued. “It’s the name of the game. And it’s bad for everyone trying to do this job the right way.”
Hillary’s Lucrative Lecture Circuit

CHICAGO — Since stepping down as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has pulled down huge honoraria to give speeches before industry groups. Last month, she returned to her native Chicago to address 15,000 human resource professionals on the subject of immigration reform and Obamacare and how policy changes regarding those issues would affect their industry.

NEW YORK — Pop Phenom Justin Bieber called Bill Clinton to apologize for a bizarre incident in which the singer was videotaped spraying cleaning fluid on a photo of Clinton and hurling an epithet commonly called the “F-word” at the absent former President. That gesture came after Bieber urinated in a restaurant mop bucket.
LORETTO, Pennsylvania — John Kiriakou, the former CIA counter-terrorism operative who was imprisoned in retaliation for exposing the Bush administration’s illegal torture program, has some advice for fellow whistleblower Edward Snowden: Do not trust the FBI.
CAIRO — A huge and growing divide can be seen in Egypt’s increasingly bloody political upheaval, but both sides agree on one thing: They despise Barack Obama and his administration.
SILICON VALLEY — The Guardian of London reports that Microsoft gave the NSA the ability to circumvent its own encryption protocols. Documents provided to the paper by Edward Snowden reveal that Microsoft also worked with the FBI earlier this year to provide the NSA with easy access to its cloud storage service SkyDrive, which now has more than 250 million users worldwide.

Jeb Presents Hillary Neo Con of the Year Award
Neo conservatism does not just cross party lines, it is the party line. Both major US parties share the same foreign policy, which is “humanitarian interventionism,” pushing “democracy” at the barrel of a gun, militarized diplomacy, covert and overt support of subversive NGOs overseas, and so on.
The trillions of dollars spent to pursue their pipe dreams destroys our economy and makes us hated and resented throughout the world. They are never right. Their every promise is a lie.
What a perfect example of the two-headed snake that is both major political parties than this news that Jeb Bush is to award Hillary Clinton with the “2013 Liberty Medal.”
Here is Jeb Bush on Hillary Clinton:
“Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to serving and engaging people across the world in democracy. “These efforts as a citizen, an activist, and a leader have earned Secretary Clinton this year’s Liberty Medal.”
Let’s have a look at just a few of the fruits of Hillary Clinton’s “engaging the people across the world in democracy”:
Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton embrace — the epitome of the neo con control over US foreign policy.
The U.S. exports many things, such as jobs, manufacturing and services. The most expensive U.S. export comes directly form the government, democracy, which cost millions of lives.

With controversy continuing to develop over U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, her personal finance records tell another interesting tale.
As President Barack Obama’s favored candidate to replace Hillary Clinton, Rice has a net worth of somewhere between $23.5 million and $43.5 million as of 2009, which made her the wealthiest member of the executive branch that year with an average net worth of $33.5 million, according to research by the Center for Responsive Politics. Clinton was second on the list at an average $31.2 million.
Officials are required to report only ranges of the values of their assets on their personal financial disclosure forms, rather than a specific values.
Forty-four percent of Rice’s portfolio is in finance, insurance and real estate, while the next largest portion is 30 percent in energy and natural resources. Rice is also invested in the transportation (15 percent), health (5 percent), communications/electronics and miscellaneous business (3 percent each) sectors.
But Rice would likely have to divest parts of her portfolio, or put her assets in a blind trust, in order to avoid a number of potential conflicts of interest were she to be confirmed.
The possibility of going to war is laughable? Only to those that know if there is a confirmed strategy.
When to attack, end of this year, beginning of next, still laughable? Only to those that know there is a confirmed schedule of events.
Highlighting a suggestion that it would be beneficial for the US to be attacked to bring about unity of support to attack Iran? Hillary Clinton said” There are those who are saying the best thing that could happen to us is to be attacked by somebody. You know, just bring it on.” This even raised a chuckle and enthusiasm from Clinton. Finding something positive in the consideration of the US being attacked could only come from a warmongering neocon, who in this case is representing Israel before the lives of those here in the US.
A pretext for another false flag attack? You thoughts?
The UN’s envoy for Syria has said there is international agreement that a transitional government should be set up in order to end the fighting.
Kofi Annan said an international conference in Geneva had agreed there should be a “transitional government body with full executive powers”.
This could include both members of the government and opposition.
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad could not remain in power.
But her Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov said there were no preconditions to the proposed transition that dictated who should or should not be in the transitional government.
Saturday’s “action group” conference was attended by both Western powers and Russia and China.

The United States exempted China and Singapore from sanctions over purchases of oil from Iran hours before a deadline, saying that major economies were united in pressuring Tehran.
The United States, however, did not grant exemptions to smaller-scale importers such as Pakistan and Afghanistan, meaning that banks from those countries could face punishment if they handle transactions for Iranian oil.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ruled that China and Singapore had “significantly reduced” their crude oil purchases from Iran, granting them exemptions on the final day before sanctions take effect.
Under a law aimed at pressing Iran over its nuclear program, the United States will bar financial institutions that buy oil from Iran, essentially forcing them to choose between Tehran and the world’s largest economy.
Clinton credited the threat of sanctions with severely cutting Iran’s crude oil exports and estimated that it cost the country some $8 billion in lost revenue each quarter.
The world’s “cumulative actions are a clear demonstration to Iran’s government that Iran’s continued violation of its international nuclear obligations carries an enormous economic cost,” she said in a statement.

Certain reporters in the mainstream media and progressive politicians in Washington have engaged in rhetoric that exhibits a marked insensitivity to the whistleblowers and victims in the Fast and Furious scandal.
In the aftermath of the vote Wednesday by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, certain mainstream reporters and progressive politicians went on a spree of hurling inflammatory statements at Republicans in the House and some of the reporters who broke the Fast and Furious story.
The hate spree has had the net effect of slamming and insulting the whistleblowers and victims who through no fault of their own found themselves caught up in a sordid scheme of illegal activity including gun and drug smuggling and murder, perpetrated by the Obama Justice Department and its agency, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).

Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State has announced that the Obama administration is working with the United Nations (UN) to approve, through the US Congress, the Small Arms Treaty (SAT).
Clinton affirmed that the US would facilitate talks with the UN in the Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty, as long as it “operates under the rules of consensus decision-making. Consensus is needed to ensure the widest possible support for the Treaty and to avoid loopholes in the Treaty that can be exploited by those wishing to export arms irresponsibly.”
This global gun control scheme, concocted by the UN, is called the International Arms Control Treaty (IACT). Disguised as a way to combat terrorism, insurgents and international criminals, this document endeavors to secure the world’s citizens cannot defend themselves.
The IACT will empower the UN to literally force the US government to:
The Mujahideen were the “database” of Al-Qaeda assets. Al-Qaeda are a controlled opposition force of the Central Intelligence Agency to promote their middle east destabilization process. To give empirical U.S. Military Industrial Complex a reason to invade wherever they want in the ever widening “war on terror” fraud.
So the US government creates this entity called al-Qaeda based on a database table, which started with the Soviet war in Afghanistan. At this time we funded with cash and weapons the small group through a young Saudi named Osama bin Laden, whose Arab group eventually evolved into al-Qaeda. We must have funded them extremely well to believe that they carried out terror attacks in later years with a communication based inside of a cave. I get poor cell phone service on the first floor of a two story building, guess I should try a mountain cave and compare?¿?
As there only seems to be one al-Qaeda group, can I safely assume that this group that our government tells us to live in fear of, uses as a cause for the (non) Patriot Act, which should justify civilian TSA inspectors to grope our children, grandparents and whom ever else they choose, is the same al-Qaeda that was again financed and given weapons to support the uprising in Libya?
There is a game of chess being played, strictly for your entertainment. Should it be reality I would call it a chess match, but there is no contest, only the movement of the pieces to create a nice illusion. Go back to sleep America and enjoy this great transparency and do not worry about the smoke and mirrors. They are there to protect you!
