It’s becoming clearer what happened in Benghazi: But you have to believe that our Presidents can order any American citizen to be killed, or just not being saved.
That’s not a conspiracy theory. Obama already gave himself the right to kill any citizen he considered a threat to America by executive order. Did Obama sign the death warrant of the ambassador in Benghazi?
Let’s follow the circumstantial evidence shall we? After all, if the chocolate cake is gone, and the only kid the house says he didn’t eat it, but he has chocolate all over his face, do you have a case? In court, circumstantial evidence can convict. Why not convict on circumstantial evidence with Obama?
Theory One: Obama planned to arm the Syrian rebels, but he had to do it in a way that he couldn’t be tried for treason, and without Congress. So, he set up a CIA operation in Libya to help send supplies to the terrorists.
On Alex Jones:
A former CIA gun runner revealed that the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, was killed in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in order to cover up the U.S. State Department’s direct arm shipments to al-Qaeda.
“A contact of mine in the Middle East, a high-ranking NATO official, mentioned to me that he had reports that the ambassador [J. Christopher Stevens] had been complaining about the dispatches and cables that he had got from the State Department about the weapons being received and [Islamic] radicals armed, including Stinger missiles.”
According to Plumlee, Steven was ordered to stand down after he asked the State Dept. what he should do about the American arm shipments to al-Qaeda.
These revelations suggest that after Stevens told the State Dept. that he did not want al-Qaeda receiving heat seeking missiles, he was killed in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi which was designed to take out witnesses to the arms transfer and to suppress Steven’s reports. Tying it all together, Plumlee stated that the weapons given to al-Qaeda were “U.S. made weapons that came from the DCS program, illegally transported by C-130s” into countries such as Turkey and Jordan and were “dispatched from CIA safe houses to the Syrian rebels.”
But, that’s not the end of it. Obama and Hillary successfully lied and cover-up the truth until after the elections, when more scandals took everyone off Benghazi.
And Obama cleverly, with he support of John McCain, after the WMD attack in Syria, just wrote himself ‘permission’ to send weapons to Syria.
President Barack Obama has authorized sending weapons to Syrian rebels for the first time, U.S. officials said, after the White House disclosed that the United States has conclusive evidence President Bashar Assad’s government used chemical weapons against opposition forces trying to overthrow him.
Oh gee…now he can come out of the closet! But..then something slipped. It seems more weapons were ‘stolen’ from Libya: (see video)
Highly sensitive U.S. military equipment used by U.S. Special Forces in Libya was stolen in several raids over the summer by groups likely affiliated with terrorist organizations, State Department sources told Fox News. The theft of dozens of M4 rifles, night-vision technology, and lasers contributed to the decision to pull the 12-member Special Forces team from the country in August. so State pulled its support for the training program and then began to try and get the team moved out of the country.” The loss of this military equipment is what pulled the plug on the US operation,” one source with direct knowledge of the events told Fox News. “No one at the State Department wanted to deal with the situation if any more went wrong, so State pulled its support for the training program and then began to try and get the team moved out of the country.” The 12-member American team was not at the training camp when either raid occurred, as they regularly stayed at a nearby villa that served as a safehouse at night.
Nobody Wins when your President is sending billions of dollars of weapons and arms, and saying that they were ‘stolen.”
It was just a lie. Obama GAVE these to the jihadists.
There is lots of chocolate on that face, and I’m not a racist.
Nobody Wins when you supply your enemy with your top weapons.
Obama should be impeached. And McCain can go with him.
Nobody Knows just why Obama and the Rino’s are crying out for war with Syria. Everybody that I read is pretty much guessing that it’s all to save Obama from his own big mouth. But Nobody Thinks we should ask the very old but very sensible question: Who benefits? It’s blatantly obvious that the United States citizens, would be hurt. We don’t have the money or the will to fight another senseless war in the Middle East—-but how about our elites?
Nobody Knows and wonders—-what and IF some of our entranced Senators and Presidents get some personal money out of this from…big corporations, or even worse…other countries?
Nobody Knows…how influential big corporations and Saudi money are in calling the shots in Washington D.C. It seems, every politician in Washington is controlled and by big wads of money. P.J. O’Rourke was right when he said we have a Parliament of Whores. Nobody Wonders if we can also add a recent gaggle of Presidential Whores to that great title.
Let’s go back to the first gulf war. Daddy Bush told us we were going over there to protect a defenseless country named Kuwait, and Saddam was a bad guy. Remember, we backed that ‘bad’ guy with chemical weapons, military hardware, and millions of dollars to help those poor tribal lords in Iraq fight Iran. We did the very same thing with bin Laden, in Afghanistan, to help him fight Russia
How did that turn out for us?
Daddy Bush gave our military support to those adorable Sunni sheiks in Saudi Arabia in order to protect them, and their family, and their oil with the FIRST Gulf war. Bush the elder put on a real patriotic display for…making himself look good and protecting the Sheiks. The propaganda was so good…we didn’t mind much, because we still had money.
Then we had Clinton protecting the Muslims in Kosovo in THAT civil war. Remember, there was another ‘bad’ guy…Milosevic. Nobody Knows how necessary that was. Clinton kept away from bin Laden, refused the man nine times, because bin Laden had relatives in the Saudi family. He literally ignored the bombing of the Cole, (We will FIND the criminals who did this!) and the first bombing of the World Trade Center, which was done by the Muslim Brotherhood. Clinton airlifted Bosnian refugees over here because he felt sorry for them. He dropped 80,000 into St. Louis.
After 9.11, Bush Jr. protected the Saudi’s kids and sent out planes to pick up their families here, while everybody else was grounded. Even though almost ALL of the hijackers came from Saudi Arabia, Bush blamed one lone man. bin Laden, and he kept inviting those old Sheiks down to his Texas ranch, where he could give them big kisses.
Obama just has the thugs into the White House.
Who here believes that George W. Bush didn’t know where bin Laden was for ten years…raise your hands.
(Okay. You there. Go back to your granola.)
Obama continued the Saudi King worship with low bows.
Are you starting to see a pattern here? Jeb Bush is about to give Hillary Clinton, the butcher enabler of Benghazi, a metal of honor. Hillary has a Muslim Brotherhood woman as her assistant and she is now the right hand man of Obama.
Tell me, when will the American people get some attention from their Presidents?
All these years, our Presidents have been protecting the Saudi’s family…and we are still doing it. Iran is their biggest enemy. How nice it would be for them if we took out Syria, and then Iran?
You could say that our Presidents are doing this to keep us in oil, but we can easily get oil from other places, including our own country, and yet, we NEVER do. Our Congress AND President make damn sure we stay forever dependent on the Saudi oil.
Nobody knows, if the reason that rich people want the Presidency so badly is that the top politicians have their own very secret, and very lucrative contracts with Saudi Arabia? After all, the Saudi’s and the Muslim Brotherhood are both Wahhabi. It would explain why we have a Muslim sympathize in the White House. The Saudi’s could have told the Rhino’s at the top, that they wanted a Muslim someday, in the Presidency. John McCain could have been in on that deal. After all, he ran to lose, it was almost too obvious.
Are our Presidents and some of our Senators on the payrolls of Saudi Kings?
Because Nobody Knows how John McCain, a decorated war veteran, could say this:
The bloodcurdling cry of “Allahu akbar” is a war cry, and is meant to “strike terror in the hearts of the unbelievers.” You can’t tell me John McCain doesn’t know that.
Nobody Knows if the Boston Mayor Menino who said when a reporter asked him what he’d do with Detroit “I’d blow up the place and start all over.” if John McCain would think it was okay if the Mayor said “Thank GOD!” after he did it? (And wasn’t THAT a racist statement?)
Nobody Knows why the democrats, Hillary Clinton and Al Gore helped get the network Al-Jazeera broadcasted into American homes, while in Egypt, the Muslims’ Brotherhood network has been banned. Al Gore made millions, but what did Hillary get?
Nobody knows why now, Ft. Hood was treated as a work place accident. Nobody Knows why American Tea Party is higher on the FBI list as terrorist than al-Qaeda.
Are our Presidents getting paid in secret by the Saudi’s to keep us at war? After all, a few top men making billions from secret payouts from foreign countries would be very hard to prove, and very easy to hide. Look how long they hid everything else? (NSA( We still don’t know who killed JFK, and never will. Did FDR make a deal that American Presidents would forever more protect the Saudi Family as long as a few key people at the top of our government got big payouts? Could the Saudi Kings have insisted that payout as long as America was kept dependent on their oil?
Nobody knows, but it would sure explain the absolute absurdity of the last four President and their actions. And when you look all around you, it’s the ONLY answer that explains it all.
If you think I’m nuts about this theory, ask yourself: “What have they done for YOU lately?”
This week, we have the conservative rock of Fox News, Charles Krauthammer staying ON the talking point of, where exactly was the President of the United States during the Benghazi attack? Obama and his press lackeys want everyone to just ‘drop it.’
And that is why Eric Holder and Obama are trying to take control of the various scandals with the spin of, “Hey, We didn’t have anything to do with any of the scandals, so trust us, and let’s move FORWARD! To a new day! That’s all in the past, and we’ll fix it! Come to my meeting and I’ll answer your questions, you just can’t print them.”
And today we have seen, in a rare moment of sanity (or changing of the old guard to the ‘We want to get rid of Obama, and set up Hillary.’ mode) CNN, the New York Times, AND the Huffington Post refused to show up along with their rival, FOX NEWS.
So, several liberals reporters are siding with FOX.
It’s about time: Let’s see how long this lasts. I’m betting…at the most…a week.
JUST what Obama was doing on the night of the Benghazi attacks, and because Obama has seen fit to not reveal his whereabouts, and is having everyone insist that he ‘went to bed,’ and missed everything that night, he has nobody but himself to blame for the upcoming speculation that is going to drive the liberals mad.
And I say: Let’s drive them crazy. Let’s speculate every single thing until somebody tells us.
Let’s see…mmmm…What do we know about Obama? Obama did a lot of drugs in his lifetime, and the drug cocaine was his favorite by his own admission, although he tried them all. Anyone who has every known ANYONE who has done cocaine, knows that it’s harder to quit than cigarettes. Most cocaine users never get off of it.
Judging by his cocky, narcissistic personally, and thin energy, he physically looks like Reggie is keeping him in good supply.
Also Obama…LOVES to party. He stays up all night with his homeboys at the White House: Stevie Wonder, Snoop Dog, Beyonce’, Reggie Love..
Yes, Reggie Love was bound to come up. Obama spends more time with Reggie than he does his own wife. And so, since Obama has told his minions to tell everyone that what he was doing during Benghazi was ‘irrelevant”, one journalist had the sheer guts to speculate what Obama was doing, due to the circumstantial evidence of just knowing the man:
Here’s what Kevin Dujan, (a gay conservative) said:
“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.
Yes, it takes one to know one, and just the fact someone dare suggest that the liberal’s hero, Obama: first baloney Grand Buba of the nation— was a drug addict, is just too much for them.
This came from the liberal Wonkette:
We don’t know about you, but the idea of Obama being a 70s-style coke whore hanging out at modern-day bacchanalia does not make us love him less. It just wants to make us hang out with him more. Sorry conservatives. Thanks Obama!
And it’s true, they would.
More than likely, Obama was there, and gave the order to the military to stand down, in order to keep quiet his illegal gun running. Only Obama could have given that order.
And then he went and did coke and had sex with Reggie.
Hey, a good sex scandal covers up an international drug running scandal any old day of the week!
Just ask, Bill Clinton. He perfected it.
For a man who is supposed to be brilliant, Obama sure doesn’t know much, but what he does know how to do is lie. But…like most serial liars, sooner or later, you just can’t keep up with all the lies, and you start digging that hole real deep, and then your time is up.
Obama lied, and continues to lie about Benghazi. No reporter has dared to ask Obama just exactly what was he doing on the night of the attack. They want everyone to think he told Hillary and Panetta to handle it, but even if that’s true, then it’s a serous dereliction of duty on his part. Obama is always bragging that he is the Commander-in -Chief, but his actions on the night those poor men were killed was egregious to a fault. According to the military experts, only a President could have given the order to stand down.
Today in the speech, Obama’s defense, (AND also Hillary’s) is that well, “Hey…we can’t protect people, and if they volunteer to go to dangerous places it’s not OUR fault if they get killed.”
What kind of cock-a-mammie BS is that?
Of COURSE it’s your fault. Would you send your child to cross a major highway everyday, because you didn’t have a car, but you needed milk? Your kid because he wants to please you, runs across the highway to get it. You figure he knows the dangers therefore it’s not your fault if he gets hit? Or even killed? It’s pretty much the same logic.
Soldiers at least have weapons. You can’t send people into a hotbed of Muslims without protection. Obama admits they did not have enough protection, but he’s trying to fix that. Uh..gee…nice of you to give it some thought Mr. ‘President.”
To Obama, all public servants are expendable.
Obama’s defense on the ‘side show’ that they all put on, was that he said the next day it was a terror attack. But he didn’t say that. He said the world “terror” but did not say that it was a terror attack. Just because he mentioned the word generically doesn’t mean it was a declarative statement. It was NOT.
And then, another lie: Watch the first sentence of this video, and tell me if that man is NOT lying.
Obama says he just found out about the IRS auditing and attacking tea party patriots on the news, with the rest of us. And if you believe that big sucker, than you believe that we should all start eating bugs, and putting our fingers through our nose because they say it’s good for us.
Carney said the IRS inspector general notified the White House counsel’s office during the week of April 22 that it was completing a review of the IRS office in Cincinnati that targeted conservative political groups for special examination.
Janet Napolitano made tea party patriots officially on the terrorist watch list at Homeland Security, and of course Obama was aware of that. Why is he not outraged at that? I was outraged. Weren’t you?
Nobody believes he is THAT stupid. And now the talking point is: Well other Presidents have done it…so no big deal. Nixon was impeached on that criminal act, but this is Obama. He’s black. You can’t impeach him. (And that’s another lie. )
Obama is not just a liar, he’s a liar of great magnitude. His lies could fill up the Guinness Book of Records for most lies told in history.
And he likes to play Good cop/bad cop. He sends his soldiers out to attack, take down, destroy, and conquer, and when they break the law, he calls them bad boys and girls, and he will punish them, and of course that’s another big fat lie.
It’s only a matter of time before Obama’s tells so many lies, he can’t keep up with them all.
And so…the liar-in-chief is following others in history…and there are too many to count. But here’s a quote by some ‘old’ guys that could be said about Obama.
Benjamin Disraell once said about Daniel O’Connell, (Irish politician)
A systematic liar and a beggarly cheat: a swindler and a poltroon. He had committed every crime that does not require courage.
And that’s putting it nicely.
Nobody Gets Email
This if from the Conservative folks, in case you missed the whole, “We didn’t know it was a Al Quada attack.” business that Hillary, Obama, and Rice put out from the beginning. Come on…they are suppose to be the smartest people in the world…and they didn’t know?
Since it had to be Obama that gave the orders to stand down, it comes to reason that it was Obama’s idea to lie to the world, and use it as a point to help make talking against Islam a crime, SINCE that was having big discussions at the U. N. at that time. Not to mention, he was trying to get reelected.
No doubt Susan Rice thought it was a great idea too. She is on the Muslim Brotherhood is really cool wagon.
And I won’t say enjoy, because…how can anyone enjoy this?
The Democrats have been doing this for years: When guilty of crimes they attack, attack, attack! And these two attack dogs were hand-picked by Obama and Hillary to be at that investigation today, you can count on it. Elijah had to READ every single word he was saying. I was certainly impressed with how well he read it, weren’t you?
Someone prepared that great attack speech for him. This was suppose to be a Congresstional ”investigation”…and instead, Elijah came out and TOLD everyone that there was nothing here to see. After all, there was a top general who sided with the facts that nobody could have helped these people. And so, in trying to help the grieving people who want to know the truth–Elijah says these profound words:
“Death is part of life.”
Of course, the Dems talking point is: BLAME BUSH! BLAME THE SEQUESTER! BLAME THEIR RACIST JEALOUSY! BLAME WHOOPI!
Wait, they didn’t blame Whoopi, so I will.
Sitting right next to Mr. Cummings (I will NOT go there) was Mrs. Baloney…the woman attack dog who came out and claimed how unfair it was that we attacked AMERICANS! How DARE we attack Obama and Hillary…Why this is all about keeping Hillary from being President.
She got it wrong. We are still not sure about Obama being an…American. But we are pretty sure, last time we looked, Hillary was the Secretary of State, and the boss. The buck won’t stop at the top with Hillary. You will probably find it somewhere in Susan Rice’s pantyhose.
If the Republicans were smart, they remind everyone that ambassador Stevens was gay, and the order was given, from the top…to stand down. If only he had shouted it out to the world, maybe Obama would have called him, and he would still be alive.
GREGORY HICKS: Thank you, Mr. Chairman. As I remember Sept. 11th, 2012, it was a routine day at our embassy and — until we saw the news about Cairo. And I remember sending a text message to Ambassador Stevens saying, Chris, are you aware of what’s going on in Cairo? And he said, no. So I told him that the embassy in — in another text, that the embassy had been stormed and they were trying to tear down our flag. And he said, thanks very much. And, you know, then I went on with business.
Closed the day and I went back to my villa and was relaxing, watching a television show that I particularly like, and at 9:45 p.m. — and all times will be Libyan times, there’s a six-hour time difference — the RSO [Regional Security Officer], John Martinec, ran into my villa, yelling, Greg, Greg, the consulate’s under attack. And I stood up and reached for my phone because I had an inkling or a thought that perhaps the ambassador had tried to call me to relay the same message, and I found two missed calls on the phone, one from the ambassador’s phone, one from a phone number I didn’t recognized.
Now I am certainly no expert on foreign affairs, but I thought the fact that not only did Congressman Issa take more than his share of time giving all kinds of great credentials in his introduction to this guy, when Gregory got to speak, he continued his long litany of just what an expert his is: Two masters degrees, speaks Farsi, countless awards–let’s just say truckloads more than Hillary Clinton OR ‘President’ Obama.
And yet–if I had received a call that Cairo was being attacked, and I also knew that I was in a hot spot called Libya, pretty much unprotected, I don’t’ think I would have gone home and watched TV. And I certainly would have had my cellphone right by my side while I was watching my favorite program. It’s just common sense.
Don’t get me wrong, the rest of his testimony was how brave all the state department people were throughout the attack. Almost as if he was trying to make sure no one else got demoted, as he did.
Still…that little fact of going home to watch TV…makes me wonder just how bright this guy really was. His testimony was lame at best. Like..”I loved my job, and I was good at it, and people were killed and it wasn’t my fault so give me my job back.” sort of thing.
None of that takes the blame off of Hillary at all. The attack of Benghazi falls on her and Obama. But this guy would not go so far to admit that.
To have this guy as your best witness? What were they thinking?
What most people heard was: I’m a good Government worker–ask anyone!
Obama’s Red Line
Nobody Knows exactly why Obama came out today to talk about why he is hesitating on rushing into Syria— although he drew a line in the sand when Syria used chemical weapons, the tough guy now claims they don’t know who the chemical weapons belonged to, so he’s not going to jump to conclusions like he did when that white cop tried to arrest his black professor friend.
President Obama said during a press conference Tuesday that the use of chemical weapons in Syria could be a “game changer” in the U.S. response to the conflict, but he made clear his administration first needs more evidence. the rebels have specifically requested antitank weapons and surface-to-air missiles. weapons are falling into the hands of al-Qaeda-linked Islamist militants fighting alongside Syrian opposition forces.
Nobody Knows if he is going to give the Syrian rebels, who are Al-Quada, all the weapons they want, because according to many sources he is already doing it. That’s what Benghazi was about according to many reports. Obama was using Benghazi to transfer weapons to the rebels in Syria Via Turkey.
This way, when we see American weapons in the hands of Al Qaeda he can just say they got those weapons after Benghazi…giving himself protection.
Obama isn’t going up against Putin: He’s not that smart.
The Morning After Pill
Your Obama government wants to let 15- year-olds have sex: It’s okay. “We got your back!”
Today, Plan B One-Step is sold behind pharmacy counters, and buyers must prove they’re 17 or older to buy it without a prescription. Tuesday’s decision by the Food and Drug Administration lowers the age limit and will allow the pill to sit on drugstore shelves next to spermicides or other women’s health products and condoms — but anyone who wants to buy it must prove their age at the cash register.
Makes sense to me.
And speaking of “this doesn’t make sense”
Feminists Gets Attention:
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Students at Carnegie Mellon say it’s freedom of expression, but the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh calls it inappropriate and disrespectful. At an annual art school parade, a female student dressed up as the pope, and was naked from the waist down while she passed out condoms.
Even more, witnesses say the woman had shaved her pubic hair in the shape of a cross.
I would like to know how many witnesses saw this cross, wouldn’t you? I bet Nobody Knows but Nobody Wonders how many of them had a religious experience upon the mere sight?
Gays in Sports
Obama got so excited about a black gay basketball player saying he was gay..that he called him on the phone and immediately the press took the hint and proclaimed that all gays should come out of the closet because jocks are, let’s face it: Not fond of gays.
And one jock got a lot of flak for speaking his mind;.
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III on Tuesday complained about the “tyranny of political correctness” currently holding Americans “hostage.” His comments, posted on his official Twitter account, come as some people are demanding the Redskins change their team name because of its “racist” meaning.
“In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness,” Griffin tweeted.
So far, there are no reports that Obama has called Griffin and praised him on his courage.
I would. Hand me the phone.
Remember Hurricane Sandy?
The Hurricane that pushed a lame-duck President back into office because the Republican New Jersey Governor, (Chris Christie) got Obama to help him push a $60 billion dollars check over to his state, has not been forgotten by the poor people that suffered from it.
Youttube wouldn’t let me transfer the video..but here is Chris moaning about how hard it is to get all that money to the people that need it.Chris Christie
It’s just SO hard to manage that kind of money. (Really. Give it to me, I’ll hand it out.)
Nevertheless, it’s been six months and the poor people up in New York and Jersey are still living without electric, and houses, and almost 200 families are about to be homeless again.
“I think the next six months will be a whole lot better than the previous six, and that’s because we learned from the mistakes of Katrina in how to put this thing together,” Schumer said.
Really? If they learned from Katrina, why didn’t they use what they learned in the first six months?
I would laugh and say, “You gotta love a politician!” but…I can’t. Sorry.
Nobody Knows where all that money will end up, but you can bet, it will not go to the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Terrorist or Boxing Brain Dead?
Nobody wants to know: Where were the tears from Obama, when he described how cold and heartless it was to place a bomb right at the feet of an innocent 8-year-old boy in Boston? After Sandy Hook, Obama was tearing up so much, people were handing his teleprompter Kleenex’s’. But this attack, left only a pretend to wipe of the corner of the eye.
Nobody Knows if it’s because only three people were killed, or because they did NOT use guns. And the guns they did have were illegal. Or more likely, they weren’t wearing NRA tee-shirts.
The democrats are having a very hard time trying to reconcile the fact that once again we were attacked by Muslim terrorists. The spin control experts went into full “let’s water that down” mode, and called it a ‘religious’ problem. You know…just like the Christians? No difference here.
For the last few days, the poor liberals are having the most frustrating time trying to find out what in the world caused these two normal Porsche driving, dope smoking, regular college boys to want to commit a horrible crime?
And one found the answer: It was Boxing. (via The Right Scoop)
Could the amateur boxing career of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the deceased suspect in last week’s Boston Marathon bombings, have had a role in the massacre? That’s a question leading brain researchers at Boston University’s School of Medicine hope medical examiners look into when they perform an autopsy of the 26-year-old who was killed during a firefight with law enforcement officials early Friday morning.
Nobody Knows if boxing can be blamed for the two brothers shooting a cop in the head so they could get his gun, only to find out, they couldn’t get it out of his holster. But I think we can safely say that there might have been some logical damage in the brain department there.
And speaking of brain damage:
Brain damage or liberal?
Chris Matthews is upset too. He just can’t figure out, and cannot comprehend, how two young American boys, who were going to college in Boston, driving around in Mercedes, could possibly do such a thing:
CLINT VAN ZANDT, FBI PROFILER: No, it’s really coming together. I mean, there’s — as terrible as this case is and was, there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of heavy lifting. We’ve got the two primary individuals. It’s obvious that they had hands on the devices. The pieces we don’t have, Chris, are where was their inspiration? Where did they get the guidance? Who taught them how to build the bombs? Where did they build them? These are a lot of questions.
MATTHEWS: Why is that important? Why is that important to — is that important to prosecuting? I mean, what difference does it make why they did it if they did it? I’m being tough here. But I don’t know whether, when you look at all this evidence –
What difference does it make how anyone gets killed said Hillary Clinton. Didn’t Hillary say the exact same thing about the poor dead guys in Benghazi? It makes no difference how anybody dies. They’re just dead. Don’t judge. It’s all the same.
Can we assume both Hillary and Matthews have been boxing?
Boxing at the Justice Department:
On the other hand, Nobody Knows how the Justice Department made the big mistake, of arresting the wrong guy in last week’s Ricin scare:
During a court hearing yesterday, lawyers for Curtis contended that he had been framed and pointed investigators toward James Everett Dutschke, a 41-year-old Tupelo man with whom Curtis has feuded. Like Curtis, Dutschke is a martial arts expert, a musician, and a Mensa member.
SURE we are! He’s a Republican. They had the wrong guy, obviously.
(Nobody Knows how much boxing is going on at the workout gyms of the Justice Department, but Nobody suspects a LOT. )
And speaking of the wrong guy.
Boxing at the movies:
Oscar winner Ben Affleck is joining in the effort to promote the Live Below the Line poverty-awareness and fundraising campaign, according to published reports.
The anti-poverty campaign challenges those who sign up to live on $1.50 a day for food and drink for five days.
The figure is derived from the World Bank’s definition of extreme poverty. About 1.4 billion of the world’s 7 billion people live on less than $1.50 a day, according to the charity’s
So Ben is going to live on $1.50 a day…how? Will he park his limo in McDonald’s?
The real cause of poverty: Hint: it’s not boxing.
Nobody Knows it: but I suspect that after the internet taxes kick in, we will all have to learn how to live on $1.50.
Senate bill S.336, the Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013, would address the longstanding issue of the online sales tax. The Washington Post has a good rundown that outlines in simple terms the issues pertaining to the bill:
To start, collecting taxes online in every state can be a technical nightmare for many smaller companies. The technical issues in mapping all the appropriate state and local taxes to their proper destinations can be complex and cumbersome for retailers that aren’t necessarily equipped with all the technical resources of larger companies. It would also require changes from many states and localities. Obama has indicated that he supports the bill, according to White House spokesman Jay Carney.
White House spokesman Jay Carney says the Senate bill would level the playing field for small businesses and brick-and-mortar retailers that are undercut by online companies.
Nobody Knows how “level” that playing field is now, but right now, it’s the big companies that always win. What this really means is that the divide between the rich and the poor is only going to get bigger.
