Absent And Accounted For

Breaking news, Leon Panetta is standing on one foot, so he will be unable to testify in this week's Benghazi hearings before the House and Senate Intelligence Committees.

...And sources confirm Hillary Clinton is getting her hair done that day, so she will be unavailable to testify about her role in the Benghazi terror attacks.  She's quoted as saying, "My gal does the best weaves in town, and she's booked solid for weeks in advance.  There's simply no way to reschedule this vitally important meeting."

Shawn Turner, spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, has some preplanned vacation days he has to use up, or he runs the risk of losing these days for the entire calendar year, citing unconfirmed reports from the Administrator of Human Resources.  

And Susan Rice, US Ambassador to the United Nations, cites ongoing work on a humanitarian aid mission that will prevent her from attending the closed door sessions, which are aimed at uncovering what President Obama knew, when he knew it, and what he did throughout the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012.  The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including US Ambassador Chris Stevens.  "With over 80 million videos currently uploaded onto YouTube, we are spending countless man-hours to ensure any content that may be offensive, inflammatory, or provocative to Muslims will be exposed and outed with the broadest international media coverage," Rice said in a press release this morning.  "Not all universal rights are equally universal."

Leaving the figure most responsible for overseeing America's botched safety preparations, security operations, and military response that resulted in four unnecessary American murders to testify on his own behalf.  Unfortunately, President Obama is expected not to attend the hearings due to an unavoidable scheduling mix-up placing him on several major talk shows the entire week.  A cabinet spokesman has said the President plans to review the full contents of the hearings, along with his daily intelligence briefings, on his iPad at a fundraiser in Las Vegas the day after the hearings are televised live on CSPAN.

General Petraeus is newly unemployed, and he is free to testify without restriction at any time.

The Worst Scandal in Presidential History

What has transpired in the tragic events surrounding September 11, 2012 in Libya amounts to the worst scandal in US Presidential history.  The information has come out step by step, day by day, as though God were meticulously exposing the facts of the case before a jury of the American public for us to render our verdict on election day, now one week away.

The picture that has unfolded is shocking, of an intense 7 hour terrorist attack on a woefully under-protected US consulate that should never have happened.  In fact, at every conceivable juncture where President Obama had any impact that could have averted the tragedy and preserved Americans’ lives, his decisions directly aided and abetted the terrorists.

In the six months leading up to 9/11/2012 there were several terrorist attacks attempted against this very consulate in Benghazi.  The whole surrounding region was volatile, a hotbed of extremism where anti-American fervor repeatedly erupted into violence.   Despite a bomb attack on the consulate on June 6, and Sec. of State Clinton supporting the consulate’s requests for increased security, Obama instead ordered a reduction in security at the site – no Marines present, and any security forces were not to keep live ammunition in their guns.  Obama reduced security down to a visibly diminished show of force, while neutering their ability to respond to any real security threats.

Not even the global significance of the anniversary of September 11 convinced Obama to adequately secure our consulate.  He left sovereign US territory in a known terrorist-active region understaffed and unprepared on the highest profile day of the year.  But the threat to Benghazi wasn’t merely regional.  On September 10, al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahri issued warnings of pending attacks on Americans in Libya to avenge the drone killing of an al-Qaeda official.  Libyan President Mohammed el-Megarif confirms he passed word of the pending al-Qaeda attack on to US diplomats at least 48 hours beforehand.

Inexplicably demilitarizing our Benghazi consulate in light of the monumental and urgent evidence to the contrary is a lapse of sufficient magnitude to completely disqualify Obama from any future leadership position in US government.  But unfortunately this is the mere prelude to the scandal...

A Pragmatic Experiment

I would sum up the Obama presidency thus:

A socio-political experiment to determine whether the stupidity of American voters is sufficient to observe a governing body empirically undermining the financial interests, national security, and personal liberties of these same people, undisguised and in plain view over the course of nearly four years, and yet still voluntarily support this ruling body in its bid to further expand its own power at the expense of the basic rights, freedoms, dignity, opportunity, and prosperity of the people.

The proposition this experiment aims to discover is whether the American’s hierarchy of values, his moral code, even his rational coherence as a sane member of society, are all up for sale for the mere price of economic demagoguery.  Has the price of the American soul been reduced to untenable promises, disproved mantras, self-refuting claims, free government cell phones, free condoms, and a PR-branding push that elevates willing supporters to an elite, righteous sanctimony, while labeling anyone who opposes the bizarre self-surrender to a hostile government with the most viscerally repugnant rhetorical sins: racist, murderer, xenophobic, lovers of wealth, haters of fellow humankind?

It is as though Mephistopheles has arrived on the scene of the downtown boulevard, picked up by the inuring glare of 10,000 cell phone cameras all streaming live, and his only question to the inquiring electorate is whether they’re in for a few free contraceptives?  WHAT SAY YOU, SOUNDS LIKE A GOOD DEAL?

Entry The First: A Question, America -

I wonder - 

If President Obama were to lob the heads off the Koch brothers on live national tv inside the Oval Office, would the US media unanimously blame Bush?  Would the View and MSNBC and a coalition of Hollywood stars all agree it proves Romney is too rich and successful to be President?  Would legions of internet trolls refuse to answer any questions about it whatsoever?  Would Bill Maher donate another $1 million?  Would Letterman quip, "You've gotta hand it to him, that's really showing some executive privilege, I tell you!"  Would Axelrod and Van Jones and Al Sharpton and Reverend Wright blame the capitalist system of white privilege?  And would John Boehner induce apoplectic convulsions on the floor of the Capitol building, declaring that finally, once and for all, Republicans were going to issue a really, really, really serious statement?  The statement to end all statements, no less.
