I agree with your second paragraph; but the first is incorrect. It is the rightwingers who favor a police state.
"We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded (as the Armed Forces)."
Barack Obama, July 2, 2008.
Before he's even nominated, Obama tells you he intends to install a police state.

Obama says he can kill any American in the country at his whim

Eric Holder illegally spys on members of Congress, journalists, and who knows how many private citizens

Janet Napolitano, who's only authority is over the American people, has procured: 2,400 armored combat vehicles (tanks; more tanks than were landed on D-Day); 7000 machine guns (more machine guns than the Marines had on Iwo Jima); 1.6 BILLION rounds of ammunition (of a type prohibited by the Geneva Convention; enough ammunition for both sides to fight World War I for TWENTY years)

Let me get this straight...
Are you saying Obama is a right-winger? I am under the definite impression Obama is an elitist attempting to institute a Marxist communist dictatorship on what he considers peasants, which makes him unquestionably a left-wing radical. And, it's overwhelmingly obvious a military police state is being created under Obama.

libots who don't question benghazi are as good as traitors.

This isn't about differences of opinion on the war on terror. It's about pure, raw, election politics, and calculus about headlines, and counting votes, and the fear it will look bad if Osama bin Laden's death didn't solve very much at all.

There is no politician in America who has the right to sacrifice another man's life to avoid a difficult headline.

There is nothing confusing about what happened that night and in the following weeks. We don't need all the gritty and ugly details, easily available on the internet. It is obvious that Obama and Hillary had to issue the directives. The CIA or the military would not ignore a terrorist attack on a U.S. embassy on 9/11.

Both CIA chief, General Petraeus, and AFRICOM'S commander, General Ham, said they did not issue orders to not intervene. The directive could only come from our Commander in Chief.

Can you imagine if no one asked President George Bush how to respond to 9/11 because he was busy talking to elementary school children?

President Obama was not even busy. He just retired for the night, we are told. He was told about what was happening and HE DID...NOTHING.

There was no meeting of the national security team in the situation room, so familiar to us all from the President's Bin Laden photo op. Obama did not talk again with his Secretary of Defense.

American military forces stationed 600 miles away in Sicily - one hour and fourteen minutes away by a commercial airliner - were not sent.

We didn't send medical personnel.

After the first attack, we didn't send men to secure the annex.

Pleas for help were ignored.

Special operating forces in Libya were ordered twice to not go to the rescue.

The men in Benghazi were left on their own to fight and die.

Obvious lies were issued by Obama and Hillary in the days that followed. They were stupid lies, already belied by the events - blaming a video, denying it had anything to do with 9/11.

Asked by a campaign reporter if requests for help were denied, Obama said he ordered "Number one, make sure we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to." But far from 'whatever we need to' Obama's administration and military did nothing at all.

Asked why the U.S. military did not do more, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Thursday the first rule in such a situation is not to deploy troops into harm's way ...

Clearly no orders reached Panetta to "do whatever we need to" to secure personnel. Obama's and Clinton's lies were offensively transparent the moment they uttered them.

Those men in Benghazi, beloved by their families, brave, patriotic men serving their country, were abandoned to die because the attack on an embassy didn't match the campaign talking points about the brilliance of the Obama/Clinton foreign policy.

There wasn't supposed to be a 9/11 attack after killing bin Laden and Clinton's signature policy, the Arab Spring.

what did Homer call the above, oh yeah BS.

No, it shows that Progressives claims that no one cares is a lie.

The fact that CNN is the outlier for high approval of Obama makes the whole results even more interesting.

Not really, Homer.
Nixon wanted the IRS to harass his enemies, but it never happened.
Obama's IRS did harass his political enemies and it is documented.
The DOJ harassing of reporters is unprecedented.
Obama is just collateral damage at this point. The Progressive mindset that drug us all into the mud is to me the real target.
I want everyone to KNOW that this mindset has been out there in full view where Obama's enemies were targeted for harassment.
I want discredited the whole Progressive establishment that creates and promotes such outrageous behavior.
When Treasury Secretary George Schultz questioned Nixon's directive to dig into financial dealings of businessman Henry Kimmelman, a major backer of Nixon's 1972 opponent, Sen. George McGovern, Nixon complained to aides: "What's he trying to do, say that we can't play politics with the IRS?"

Apparently it was deemed less politically damaging for Obama to withhold rescuers, go to bed, go to LAS VEGAS to CAMPAIGN the next day, and then LIE about what happened.

How sad for America that Obama's calculus was right.

He understood our media's unbridled and CORRUPT support for him.

He understood how Romney could be bullied by the press into silence.

He understood how willing and motivated Democrat voters were to accept his lies about Benghazi.

Obama calculated he could get away with it before the election, and he did.

Clinton calculated her supporters would care less, and she is still right.

She knew that the interviews of the family members, their pleas for justice, would not touch the hearts of her followers - and she was right.

The abandonment of those men was condoned and covered up and excused with alacrity by the entire Democrat political apparatus, including the Democrat media.

They got away with it because Democrat followers don't care.

That is as immoral as it comes for me.

The answer is no. You would always have an excuse.
Tree rings are not accurate enough, Studying glaciers won't be accurate enough. It was hot 4 million years ago. There will always be a report somewhere by someone that says no & that is what you will cling to.
B;ah Blah Blah.
It's BS. One example. Numbnuts like you were crying about some glacier melting somewhere. Well lo and behold they found a mine and a mine camp with a whole town near by.

New York Times: Mr. George, the inspector general, revealed during the hearing that he had informed the Treasury Department’s general counsel and its deputy secretary, Neal Wolin, early last summer that he was auditing the I.R.S.’s screening of political groups seeking tax-exempt status. That revelation meant that the matter of political targeting had been brought to the attention of senior officials outside the independent I.R.S. during the campaign year.
Some in the liberal media are having a difficult time not drawing lines all over the page and obscuring the picture in spite of only needing to connect two dots.
The buck stops with President Barrack Obama.
Have you noticed the rise in Liberal Media coming to the rescue of their boy? It's not just PBS, NPR, MSNBC and CNN. I watched the Sunday News Roundtables this past weekend and the Liberal whining is at a boiling point. George Step-and-fetchit-apolis keeps one token Conservative on the panel so he can say that his discussions are 'balanced' and 'fair'. They all pull this ploy. Bah, Bah Walters does it on the View with her Hasselbeck token.

George Will was placed between two screaming cheerleader "Chris Mathews" types this past Sunday who were crying about how the Magic Negro was being unfairly charged with these crimes and one said that it is unfair that big government is being made to look untrustworthy. George Will shot back "The larger the government, the less it should be trusted". The other screaming Blue Jay was horrified at his comment and started blurting that young people need to be taught to trust a bigger government!!!!!!

Something I find eerily present in the Liberal propaganda is the reoccurring themes and even identical phrases praising the Boy Messiah's call for huge government. Like maybe the Magic Negro had them all on a conference call to hash out 20 or 30 working paper revisions on how to make the Boy Messiah's armpits smell sweet?

The Liberal Media is on Full Alert and they're wetting their pants for the King.

Yes, the Obama administration has been shutting up opponents at a breakneck pace. That's why you don't see any opponents. They're all squelched. Barack Obama personally goes out to all the individual government offices and says, "Hi there, can you make life slightly more irritating for some random guy in Texas who doesn't like me? I'm thinking maybe have him fill out an extra form or something. Yeah. Yeah, that'll do it. Take that, you tea party bastard."
Yes, these bozos in the branch office shouldn't have done it. That's why the IRS made them stop, and had an investigation, and apologized, and why heads are probably going to roll and then some. On the other hand, it's not exactly hard to see why any person of average human intelligence would note that there have been a metric bucketload of organizations cropping up these last few years with oddly partisan names like "Tea Party Wankers" or "Anti-Tax Patriots for Electing Republicans On The Sly" and claiming to be tax-exempt, nonpartisan organizations and think to themselves that there were likely to be a considerable number of scammers mixed in with that lot. Mind you, Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS is one of these 501c4 outfits that gets somehow deemed sufficiently unpolitical, making the whole category into something of a scammer's paradise from the get-go; again, though—bad IRS bureaucrats. Bad.
Still, I find it difficult to get too worked up with world-shattering apoplectic outrage over it, which makes me a bad person, or possibly (even worse!) just not a conspiracy theorist. That's the problem; from McConnell down to the Kings and Gohmerts and Stockmans, all of conservatism has devolved into one big conspiracy theory. It's Breitbartism, all the way down. It's writ right into the movement now, and defined as synonymous with patriotism. You can go from Agenda 21 to ACORN to United Nations gun-grabbers to the powerful solar panel lobby to Benghazi all in one sweeping step; what the precise conspiracy is supposed to be or whether there is f--k-all worth of evidence to support your pet theory is unimportant; it's all about the theater, the very important and very politically motivated and very career-enhancing performance art of presuming everything to be connected to everything. Some IRS officers in a branch office screwed up? For real? Good God—Darrell Issa was probably rendered near-unconscious on his office floor when he heard it, breathing into a paper bag and waving off staffers asking him whether they should call for an ambulance.
Yes, yes, I should be more outraged. Sorry. I already have outrage fatigue, and I've had it for 10 years.
Didn't your dumb ass just complain about people using right wing talk points?

Don't laugh---there are several ways this horrible

one--after the 2014 elections Obama supporters can
file a brief with the Supreme Court on the grounds
that the Supreme Court has already ruled(remember
the contract with America)that term limits for
members of Congress are unconstitutional and that
this ruling should be applied to the Pres.
two--If Obama gets control of both houses and the
Supreme Court-He can push through a constitutional
amendment to run again.Remember how Obamacare was
rammed down our throats.
He would have to get two-thirds of the states to agree... that is, if anyone in Washington paid any attention to the Constitution.

Nobody knows who wins elections now. It's obvious computers are being programmed to steal votes, and if there is a recount, THERE'S NOTHING TO COUNT.
DHS is very obviously preparing for a major war with the American people.
There is no Posse Comitatus law anymore prohibiting the use of the Armed Forces against the American people.
We're dealling with Marxist communists. Marxist communists have no regard for things like a constitution, and think slaughtering millions of the population is acceptable to condition the population to accept life as a Marxist slave.
Obama is importing muslim terrorists from Saudi Arabia, and allowing them to enter the country without any scrutiny. They're even mocking us by someone bringing a goddam pressure cooker on the plane.
This is a perfect civil war storm. I don't see how, considering we're dealing with Marxist communists, a war between the government and the people can be avoided. We have to get rid of Obama before it starts.... and Biden. Both have to go. Biden is just a goddam idiot. He'll have even less control of the government than Obama, who has none to begin with.
