Conspiracy Central

I'm not much on conspiracy theorists.  To me, most of them are whack jobs and attention sucks.  And my dear friends who seem to hang on the every word of some "insider"?   Total sponges.  Sorry, guys.

To be cordial, though, I've occasionally taken the time to read through some of the latest "dirt" that some "insider" has dished, helpfully forward by earnest, erstwhile friends, hopefully to help me "see" what's "really going on" in our government that is going to cause widespread chaos and destruction in the next two weeks.  I read them, and for the most part, immediately dismiss them with a weary "Seriously?" and then toss them into the pile of OTHER conspiracy theories that were supposed to plunge the nation into chaos... last month.  And the month before.  And the month before.

Conspiracy theories are fun to contrive, think about, and broadcast.  For those who are in hum-drum little government jobs with little-to-no job recognition, this provides a desperately sought-after 15 seconds of fame.  Who cares if your adulating fan base is composed of complete nut-jobs?  At least it's SOME recognition, right?  This seems to sum up, at least to me, 99% of the conspiracy theorists out there.

I suppose the reason why these theories are so irritating to me is because I'm carefully cultivating my own, and the competition is annoying.

My theories are not based on "insiders" whispering about this "classified" chart or that "secret" map or that other ultra-high-level secret communique they overheard as a lower middle management pencil-pusher.  They are based on my own uninformed, unconnected observations.  Your mileage may vary, of course.  And feel free to call me a raging nutjob as well.

So here's my take.

Based on my own observations, we are in trouble as a nation, but not for the reasons you might expect.  We are in trouble, in my humble opinion, because we are pissing off God.  Big-time.

Our nation has been blessed from its inception because it was founded on Christian principles.  When I was born in the '50's, atheists and non-Christians were such a miniscule minority that they were seen as a curiosity at best, usually only found in and around the hallowed halls of extremely liberal academia.  They were easy to ignore because their numbers were almost non-existent. 

A solid work ethic was alive and well.  Blue-collar work was not looked down on, and it was expected that you get as good of an education as you could possibly afford, and then start on the ground floor if you wanted to get anywhere.  Nothing was a "given." There were no government grants other than the G.I. Bill.  Many students worked their way through school, or earned high enough grades to get a scholarship.

If you wanted to eat, you worked.  Being on government assistance carried a huge stigma, which was a huge motivator to get off of it as rapidly as you could by getting a job.  The only ones claiming "disability" were the truly disabled.  "Labor unions" existed to end the abuse of workhouses.  A factory job was deeply sought-after, for the security and benefits that it provided.  A white-collar job was where the truly gifted went to work.  And becoming a member of the clergy was a noble and dignified calling.

When I was born, you went to church.  And you made at least a passable effort to live Christian principles. Homosexuality was unanimously condemned as a sexual perversion. Child sexual abuse was dealt with swiftly and harshly.  Dirty magazines (which were quite tame by today's standards) were labeled as "smut" and were looked at with disgust and revulsion by the community.  Adult video arcades and "bookstores" simply didn't exist.

We had a sense of community.  We participated in charity fund-raisers and other "drives" that helped the lives of those less fortunate. We took care of each other, especially family.  If you grew up then, you knew your neighbors, by name, and most often were close, if not life-long friends.  Or at least knew who they were, and looked out for them anyway.  We seldom moved.  You sat on the porch, drank beer, and listened to the baseball game on a transistor radio, along with all of the other people on your block.  When the fire engine or ambulance came on your block, it was an instant meeting of the entire neighborhood to see what was going on, and how could they each help. Neighborhood Watch groups were unnecessary.  When someone came into the neighborhood that didn't belong there, you knew it.  You left your doors unlocked.  And when you acted up, your mom (or your granny) sent you out to cut a switch, with which you got your behind beat. We volunteered.  We served others.

If you loved someone, you dated them.  Without sex.  The most risky behavior we engaged in was kissing.  When you really loved them, you married them.  BEFORE you had children together.  Those who dared to do otherwise were labeled as "sluts" and "hussies" and ostracized and learned very quickly by the society in which they lived that they were not conforming to the core values that we had a nation. "Loose morals" was an epithet that carried considerable weight.  Morals were something we had, as a nation.  And Ethics.  And we were proud of it.  You were honest and upright.  Your word was your bond.  A "handshake deal" was written in stone.  Lawsuits were for egregious abuses of trust.

If you were unfortunate enough to be a single mother, even if you lost your spouse in the war, you raised your children on your own, at great sacrifice.  It was not uncommon for a single mother to hold 2-3 jobs to raise their children, but they did it.  Expecting to bear numerous children out of wedlock to different fathers and expecting the government to take care of them was unthinkable.  And totally unacceptable in our society.

In school, we said the Pledge of Allegiance.  And were taught Christian values.  In public schools.  Without protests or demonstrations.  We celebrated Christmas, and had Christmas parties, Christmas concerts, and Nativity plays.  We respected God in our schools, and His place there.  The front doors were never locked, and we never had a police officer present.  Visitors were never checked in.  There were no metal detectors, even though guns abounded in the community.  And even though we had a nation overflowing with veterans of foreign wars who had seen horrible atrocities and were no doubt suffering from PTSD, we never had a school shooting.  Ever.  Such was unthinkable.  Teachers were respected, and discipline in the classroom was not an issue.  Our principals had a wooden paddle on their wall.. with holes drilled into it... for those who acted out.  Profanity was unheard of.  Saying "damn" or "hell" was cause to be severely punished.

We had mental hospitals, asylums, and sanitariums for the long-term treatment of the chronically mentally-ill.  One of the biggest social problems we had was the corner bar.  Drugs were largely unknown.  Crime rates were low.  Policemen walked beats, knew everyone on their block, and were trustworthy.

Holidays were for families, and were sacred.  No one questioned the appropriateness of the Nativity in the town square.  And no one complained about it, either.  We all knew each other.  We were a community, united together in a common cause, with common values, and God stood at the core of it all.

We rode bikes.  We played on Little League teams.  We got dirty.  We stayed out until the street lights came on. We rarely told our parents exactly where we were, or what we were doing.  We had the freedom to explore our world.  And the neighbors looked out for us.  If we wanted to play, we went outside.  We only stayed in the house if we were sick or grounded.  Our world was "outside."  It was a world of wonder and discovery.  We had chores.  We had responsibilities.  And we had to earn what money we had.  There were no handouts.  We were expected to earn good grades, because our parents were smart enough to realize that we needed to learn self-discipline at an early age.

Our politicians were, for the most, part, honest and honorable men.  We never doubted that they had the good of the country at heart, and held the protection of our freedoms as their utmost priority, especially the Constitution that we all revered.  They had values.  Most of them took the incredible weight of their offices very seriously.  And when the wheels occasionally came off, like the Cuban Missile Crisis, they rallied around their president.  Both parties.  The whole nation.  Unitedly.  There was no sniping and no point/counterpoint after every press conference.

Our media was truly unbiased, and objective... or at least it tried to be.  It was a matter of honor and journalistic pride.  They were proud of the role they played in society.  Walter Cronkite was our hero, and exemplified all that was good and noble about journalism.  His tag line, "And that's the way it is," could be taken to the bank.  We didn't have to wonder if we were being given the "whole story."  Ever.  For a journalist to become a lapdog of some politician or political ideology was scandal, and if revealed, the journalist would never work again, or be respected.

Not today.

There's a reason we refer to Yesteryear as the "Good 'Ole Days." 

Today, we have turned from God as a nation.   Our morals and ethics as a nation lie in shambles and have all but ceased to exist.  We have allowed insurance companies to create a death-grip on our health care, and they have successfully managed to eliminate long-term mental health care altogether.  Almost all of the asylums, mental hospitals and sanitariums have been closed.  Consequently, instead of the deeply psychotic of our society taking their medications under strict supervision, safely weaving baskets and happily shuffling off to eat their green jello, they're plotting mass murders in their parent's basements.

Our schools have all but become "gun-free" shooting gallery prisons that teach godless, liberal agendas and seek to exclude parents from the educational process.  God has been forcefully removed.  Metal detectors and armed guards have taken the place of the Student Safety Patrol.  Teachers, with alarming regularity, sexually abuse our students, and don't seem to find anything wrong with that.  And our children are still being slaughtered.

Our politicians have become almost universally corrupt, and are overtly and unabashedly leading our nation down the path of Socialism... and destruction.  We are in inextricable debt to foreign powers who want to overthrow us.  We are a nation of filth, pornography, and promiscuity the likes of which we have never seen on our shores before.  We have become a nation that actually glamorizes and glorifies evil... and holds it up as the standard to which our children should aspire.  Electronic entertainment endlessly glorifies violence and aggressive behavior.  Our doors are not only locked, but dead-bolted at night (and during the day), because of the ever-present danger of home invasions and robberies.

Our journalists and mass media are nothing more nor less than propaganda machines, carefully spinning the "news" to promote whatever agenda they are told.  Unbiased, objective reporting has all but ceased to exist, resulting in wholesale distrust of journalism as an industry.  It is no longer noble or dignified to be a journalist, and is practically impossible to be impartial or unbiased anymore. Network bosses write the news... not the journalists.

What would have earned the label of "obscenity" when I was born is tame enough for network programming today.  Movies that my parents forbid me to see because they were "too racy" or "filthy" now earn a PG rating.  Movies that would have been "X" rated in my youth are now rated "R" or "PG-13."  Profanity is so common now that the most profane of words in my youth, which would have prompted a mouthful of soap, is now interspersed almost every other word in public communications and on t-shirts and sweatshirts.

Being on government assistance has become a career choice.  Not only is there no stigma, those who choose to not work are extolled as being "savvy" and "street smart."   Entire generations have grown up with such an entitlement mentality that they are willing to fight for.  And kill over.  Many simply cannot even conceive of actually "going to school" or "getting a job."  They actually make more than most college graduates by simply doing nothing.  And the government is encouraging this behavior, knowing that those recipients will forever being in their pocket.

We don't go to Church.  Attendance numbers across the nation are plummeting.  Our priests are stained with the scandal of widespread child sexual abuse... and will probably never recover.  Those who do go to church don't seem to have much interest in living Christian principles.  The innocence and humility of American neighborhood congregations were corrupted, then replaced by, greedy, manipulative "Scandal-Every-Week" Televangelists and "Mega-Churches."  Atheist and anti-Christian groups have become so strong, and so organized, that any semblance of Christianity is rapidly being eradicated from our society by the constant threat of lawsuits and costly litigation.  The government has been waging its own war on religion and religious freedom.  And we've stopped caring.  At least, we've stopped fighting it.  We don't take care of each other anymore.  Chances are, we don't know our neighbors, nor do we care.

Our children no longer go outside to play, to exercise, to explore, and to learn about life.  Instead, they are glued to electronic devices and entertainment and rarely venture outdoors.  Sports used to be a central part of growing up.  Now it is Role-Playing Games, which involved killing.  LOTS of killing.  Of course, it's no wonder now that the rising generation never spends time with their children outside in the fresh air, throwing the ball, or taking walks, hiking, or riding bikes.  Or doing anything together, really.  Even having dinner together.

Our freedoms under the Constitution that so many brave men and women fought and died to protect are being stolen from us in broad daylight.  And we simply don't care.  At least not enough to put up a fight.

No, I don't need any "insider" conspiracy theories to be convinced that we're swirling the drain as a nation.  We are headed for chaos and destruction, but not because of secret plans or devious agendas.  We are headed for destruction because, as a nation, we have turned from God.  We don't stand for anything anymore... morally, ethically, or spiritually.  We have become a hedonistic, godless nation of excess and selfishness.  And we are ripe for destruction. 

And my fear is that we are about to get precisely what we deserve.

What's For Dinner?

(A special thank you to my wife's friend, Randy Rank, for this wonderful status update on FB)

"I've decided that for the next week I am simply going to talk like a candidate seeking election."

"OK.. but what do you have planned for dinner?"
"That's a very good question and one I am very glad you asked. I find it important in the equality issue that men spend more time in the kitchen as opposed to the stereotypical model which has kept women oppressed for centuries and kept their wages below par when compared for men in an equivalent role."

"Yes, but what have you actually planned for dinner?"

"My plan, if I can get the cooperation of those that have been opposing and creating havoc in the system for so long will ensure not only that you have dinner, but that all Americans receive a fully balanced and nutritious dinner for the remainder of their lives. Even into their retirement years, a feast of plenty so to speak, in our glorious land of prosperity."

"Holy Mother of Pearl."

"I know many of you have been impatient, and it might be seen that the answers have not been forthcoming but if we show a bit of patience, and work to build a stronger America, then everything will get better. Let me be perfectly clear on this, There is a plan and things will improve."
"How about just getting some &%$#'ing food on the table????!!!!" 
"That's specifically the type of underhanded rhetoric I'd expect. There will be food, and I guarantee that in spite of the concerns, it will be healthy and fully certified by one of my advisors in the administration. Too often I have heard the conspiracy theory platform from some such as yourself that the food is but an illusion. But if elected, as I have said before, there will be food on every table and none, and let me be perfectly clear in this, none will go without! (Wags finger at the camera)."

"The Fix Is In... Pass It On!"

Conservative pundits and GOP strategists are having seizures in the aftermath of the 2012 election trying to figure out "what went wrong."


You honestly didn't see this freight train coming down the tracks about 20 miles ago?  Didn't you wonder why the President was so smugly confident on Election Day?  And in spite of the following:

All the areas in red voted for Romney.

The simple truth is that this election was fixed, pure and simple.  Chicago politics has now gone mainstream.
  • First of all, the Democratic Party in the U.S. has consistently insisted that "anyone" be able to vote, even if they are not legally entitled to vote, which is patently illegal.  Worse yet, they have openly and sometimes violently opposed picture ID requirements.  The stated reason?  It would "discriminate" against a population segment that already has to have picture ID to function in just about any capacity in this country.  The real reason?  It would make it harder, if not impossible, to commit voter fraud.  And that simply wouldn't do.  Interestingly, Obama lost in every state that required photo ID.
  • The NAACP, the organization MOST vehemently opposed to voter ID requirements, literally "took over" a polling place in Houston, kicking out the court-appointed election judges that were already there.  Nothing was done about it, after copious complaints.
  • 70 court-appointed election judges were forceably required to leave a Philadelphia polling place by leftist Democratic election judges, and were only allowed back in after a court order was issued.
  • In Philadelphia, members of the New Black Panther Party stood outside polling places with billy clubs to intimidate voters.
  • Election officials discovered (too late, apparently), that 1 in 5 Ohio registered voters was fake.
  • Thousands of registered voters in North Carolina were discovered to be over 113 years old.
  • Because of Hurricane Sandy, anyone could "fax in" or "email in" their ballots, inspiring widespread voter fraud on a massive scale without any possibility of verifying whether ballots were authentic.
  • Hundreds of thousands of military absentee ballots were mysteriously "misdirected" to Afghanistan that were on their way to be counted, and consequently arrived 1 day too late to be counted, which both sides admit would have seriously impacted the vote.   Tens of thousands were thrown overboard during transit, "mistaken" to be trash.
  • Tens of thousands of GOP voter registrations were "accidentally" shredded in Philadelphia (ironically the "birthplace of democracy") by the leftist organization Community Voter Project.  No reason was given for the shredding, which was only discovered when an independent journalist went through their dumpster.
  • Busloads of non-English-speaking Somali nationals (who were not legally eligible to vote in the first place) were brought into voting places in Ohio.  The only translators provided were Democratic translators... who encouraged them to "Vote Brown all the way down."  Brown was a Democrat running for Senator, and appeared at the top of the ballot. 
  • A polling place in Philadelphia forced voters to stand in line waiting to vote next to a huge mural of Obama on the wall.
  • In Detroit, an Obama voter punched a GOP voter in the face while waiting in line.
  • A woman in a Detroit polling location was aggressively campaigning for Obama. A female voter in line objected. The Obama supporter punched the woman in the face.  Police came to arrest her and she smacked the cop. 
  • A poster featuring President Obama that read “Change the Atmosphere” was reported to be hanging on a wall at a Florida, polling station.
  • Numerous electronic voting machines "mysteriously" marked Obama when Romney was selected.  Election officials were unapologetic, and simply said the machines needed to be "recalibrated," without explanation.
  • And the list, unfortunately, goes on and on and on.  Literally thousands of examples of wholesale voter fraud have been documented, and of course the Obama administration has vowed to "get right on that."
This election was not "lost."  It was stolen systematically, intentionally, and with a high degree of precision and preplanning.  My fear is that this will now be the norm.

When a political system reaches the point where it is SO corrupt that wholesale voter fraud is accepted and tolerated without being challenged, and where purely negative ads that only serve to assassinate a candidate's character are used in billion dollar mass media campaigns, whose sponsors and largely anonymous and totally unaccountable, do we have any hope as a nation of ever having a fair campaign about the issues in the future?  Or has this insideous cancer of campaign corruption now metastasized in the body politic forever?   Sadly, I fear that the prognosis is grim indeed... and could very well prove to be fatal to the democratic process in this nation.

Racist Nation

If Mitt Romney loses this election, and by all accounts, he most likely will... Martin Luther King, Jr. should turn over in his grave.

King declared that it is not the color of a man's skin that matters, but the content of his character.  And yet, with all the advances we have seen in the area of racial equality in this country, we are still a racist nation at our very core.  Only now, the racists are the ones who were formerly discriminated against.

In a recent (very disturbing) poll, 93% of African Americans said they voted for President Obama, who is black.  The reason that most gave is Black Loyalty.  Let that sink in for a minute.  They voted for Obama because he is black.  Not because he is a great leader.  Not because he has accomplished noble and worthwhile things during his first four years in office.  He hasn't.  It's because... he's black.

How do we know?  Simple.  In interview after interview after interview, they told us.  And let's face it.  Even if they hadn't admitted it, it's kind of a "Duh!" rule-out. 

The reason cannot be the economy... Obama systematically destroyed it, and incurred an obscene amount of debt in the process.  Unemployment among black youth is topping 16-18%.  Overall unimployment is galloping out of control.  But apparently, our president being black was more important than actually having jobs.

It cannot be foreign affairs; the President is so inept at foreign affairs that we hardly have any allies left.  A colossal foreign affairs failure, our president unabashedly sold us out to radical Islam, and is guilty of a massive coverup and scandal that, if pursued, is worthy of impeachment and charges of treason, and for which he may yet be criminally liable for.  This president has the blood of 4 Americans on his hands.  Of course, I'm sure his "thorough investigation" of his own coverup and complicity in murder will be voluntarily brought to light by the Oval Office, and his Attorney General, Eric "Fast & Furious" Holder. 

No, I'm sure that after the election, the President plans on just burying the whole event under yet nother Executive Gag Order.  Presto Chango.  No more scandal.  It's Bush's fault.  It's the GOP's fault.  It's the State Department, CIA, and DOD's fault.  If we know anything for certain by now, we know it's NOT going to be our president's fault.  Because he's black.

China all but owns us.  Russia's salivating over the "more flexibility" that our president has promived them "after the election."  Our credit rating is tanking.  Our jobs are being shipped overseas.  Our small businesses are drowning in taxes and suffocating regulation.  But having a black president is apparently all that matters.  ObamaPhone!

What this 93% demographic segment DOES represent, besides wholesale, unabashed, and openly admitted racism, is that a huge segment of the population who has made Public Assistance a career choice, and Government Entitlement a way of life, is more concerned about personal selfishness, laziness, and sloth than the success of our nation. 

A significant portion of this segment is admittedly uninterested in the mundane expectations of even a decade ago, in getting an education and actually getting a job.  They are perfectly happy with letting the President bribe them with an "ObamaPhone," and to pay their way to the polls every four years, so they can renew their "contract" of indolence and dependance. 

The 93% who voted for Obama "because he was black" have sold every inch of ground gained in the fight for racial equality for a $49 piece of plastic.  And what is more mind-boggling?  They're actually satisfied with the value of their trade.  Too blinded by the allure of "something for nothing," for "food stamps over a paycheck," they are so obsessed with personal selfishness and ignorance to realize the sheer magnitude of their lapse in judgment.  But hey... our president being black will make it all better.  Somehow.

The other major demographic supporting group for President Obama were Latinos, with 69% voting for our president, which represents a massive chunk of what we lovingly call "illegal immigrants,"  "guest workers," "undocumented aliens," or whatever cutesy, politically-correct term you want to apply to the millions who thumb their collective noses at our immigration laws by brazenly sneaking across our borders, and committing an astronomically higher percentage of violent crime that U.S. Citizens per capita.  But hey... our president being black is more important.

Another sizeable segment, 67% of single mothers, voted to re-elect our Black president, and represents another large Public Assistance and Entitlement demographic.  These voters feel emboldened and entitled to make very bad, careless, and even disasterous personal life decisions, only to then turn and demand that the government immediately rescue them from the consequences (and accountability) of those decisions, and/or pay their way for the rest of their lives.  They care far more about unrestained, unimpeded promiscuity than they do about the murder of unborn children or the ongoing support of those that survive... straining at the gnats of a molecule of cells that may constitute "life" on Mars, while cheerfully butchering viable human embryos and unborn infants, whom they don't consider to be "living beings."  That's too inconvenient to their lifestyle.  I guess we shouldn't even mention their ambivalence and lack of interest in providing the spawn that DO survive without being butchered with a quality of life that includes a mother AND a father.  But enough about that unpleasantness.  Our president being black is more important.

Worst of all, we, as a nation are not only breath-takingly racist... but we have rejected God altogether in the process.  We have, as a country, collectively sold our birthright as the greatest nation on earth for "mess of pottage."  An ObamaPhone.  A welfare check.  Free contraceptives.  Abortion on demand.  Gay marriage.  And oh.... we need to get God out of our government.  It makes us uncomfortable to have Him there.  It's "inconvenient."  And thank heavens we don't need God as a nation.  Having a black president is enough.  He is our Messiah now.  He will save us.  ObamaPhone!

Are we really that arrogant and stupid as a people?  Are we really this clueless, self-centered, narcissistic and hedonistic?  Have we lost our collective minds?  What hope do we have as a nation when the majority chooses evil over good, and rejects God in the process?  <shrug>  But hey... <yawn> It's all good.  There's something decent on TV tonight, and hey... we have a black President!

Why The Media Is Silent

I have to admit, I've been truly stumped over this one.  Until my wife suggested something this morning that totally made sense.

Our unabashedly liberal media won't touch this story with a ten-foot pole... before the election.  Why?  The race is too close.  They know that ANY media attention on this issue will destroy Obama's (and this is the crucial part) and any Democratic chance to take the White House next month.

AFTER the election, I believe we'll see a different story, regardless of who wins.  Why?  Very simple.

If Obama is re-elected, they will break the story, he'll resign in disgrace, and Joe Biden will assume the Presidency... and the White House will remain in Democratic control.

If Obama is defeated, they'll succumb to the ratings bonanza in breaking this story, and will throw Obama under the bus, as they then will have nothing whatsoever to lose, and a ratings extravaganza to gain.

Obama's REAL October Surprise...

You'd better be sitting down when you read this.

In my other blog ("The Way I See It: Treason"), I laid out the case why Barack Hussein Obama is guilty of treason.  I offered suggestions as to why he would have intentionally allowed our operatives, our personnel, our embassador, our CITIZENS... to be murdered while he watched, live, in real-time, which we now know that he did.

I was wrong.

Are you sitting down?

According to sources in the State Department and the CIA, and intercepted communications from the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama "staged" the attack in Benghazi in order to create a monumental "October Surprise" that would gaurantee him re-election. 

Yes, you read that right, and no, I'm not making this up.

Obama, we now know, is and has been working with the Muslim Brotherhood secretly to engineer the release of the "Blind Sheik," Omar Abdel Rahman, the mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center attack. 

In Obama's October Suprise, he intentionally set up the consulate to have no security so that Chris Stevens could be kidnapped, and held for ransom by Al-Qaeda (and the Muslim Brotherhood).  Then, several days before the election, the plan was to trade Chris Stevens for the Blind Sheik, making himself look like a hero, and all but gauranteeing re-election.  This was one of the top reasons why Obama was so insistent on the Muslim Brotherhood getting $1.2 Billion in U.S. Aid.  They were to have a primary role in getting Obama re-elected.

That is why, even though they knew days before the attack that it was going to occur, no effort was made to bolster security.  It was intended to be non-existent.  The Libyan security forces were intended to quietly slip into the night when the attack began.  And they did, just as planned.

That is why, even though 2 C-130U gunships, which were built SPECIFICALLY for this kind of attack, and which could have saved the lives of our people there and were a mere 45 minutes away, were never scrambled at any time during the attack.  There was to be no resistence whatsoever.

That is why there were not one, but TWO armed drones flying over the consulate during the conflagration... our CIA operatives on the ground were painting targets because they knew air cover was available.

That is why, even though requesting support and backup three times, their requests were NOT ignored, but were intentionally, specifically DENIED three times, and they were told to "stand down," which basically means to "surrender."  That was part of Obama's plan.  They were not to fight back.  That would potentially undermine the kidnapping effort and cause unnecessary "complications."

That is why, even though the CIA operatives and ex-Navy Seals were on the ground, providing real-time reports, and even though they were "lighting up" the source of the mortars attacking the compount with lasers, no gunships or support ever came.  They weren't supposed to resist.  That wasn't "part of the plan."

It also wasn't part of the plan for one of the CIA operatives to intentionally defy Obama's orders, and who rescued the body of Sean Smith and then stood up again orders, and engaged the enemy who was attacking American soil.  It was supposed to be "clean."  Quick.  Efficient.  Kidnap the Ambassador and get out.  Then Save The Day in the "nick of time." 

They didn't factor in a tiny group of highly trained ex-Navy Seals/CIA operatives... American Patriots and heroes.  Even though they eventually lost their lives in the firefight, they managed to employ the full measure of their skills, and took out over 80 attackers in the process... which enraged the attackers, who were led to believe that they would encounter no resistence.  THAT is why Ambassador Stevens was raped, murdered, and dragged through the streets.  In their warped minds, they believed that they had been betrayed by the U.S. yet again.  They  believed that Obama was their friend.  They believed that they were going to get their beloved Blind Sheik back.  And yet, here were 80 of their own... dead by American hands.

Obama was asked directly in an interview if he denied their request for assistance, he refused to answer, and instead droned on with a canned response promising to "bring those responsible to justice."   Former CIA and State Dept. personnel are coming out now with damning evidence that indicts President Obama, and reveals the truth about what is going on.  Hillary Clinton, who is now openly laying the blame at the feet of the President, after falling on her sword in a premature show of loyalty for the Administration.  The "Video" defense was carefully crafted WEEKS in advance, to explain the attack.

If this doesn't outrage you, you are not a Patriot.  If you are not moved enough to contact your congreeman about this, you are not worthy of your citizenship.
