Why the GOP didn't see this mole before he slipped out from under his rock is beyond me. I am sure Christie Bacon plans a run for POTUS...as a Democrat.

"Former Ambassador: Benghazi “Stand Down” Order Came from Obama
July 30, 2013
Was there ever any doubt?
Ann Wagner, a former US ambassador and current congresswoman from Missouri, was interviewed about what the protocol would be for a “stand down” order in the event of a consulate being under attack, and she answered what many have suspected already: that’s an order that would come from Obama himself.
This is one of the reasons that the Obama administration has essentially refused to provide details about where Obama was at or what he was doing during the attack. This is because we know exactly what he was doing — ignoring the cries for help for political reasons.
Being wrong about policy is one thing. But ignoring the screams of those who work for you because you’d rather them die than accept that your foreign policy is creating more terrorists is a level of treason rare, even for the most despotic tyrants."
If you want to respond to the post with something reasonable, you should give your argument about how this former ambassador really doesn't know the command structure of the State Department and how orders concerning coordination between the State Department and Department of Defense are issued.
... well?
She has no knowledge of Benghazi or any orders given whatsoever.

She is a political hack who got a fat reward for helping Bush get elected.

Christies statement about Pul's pork was in response to Paul having a fit about Christie getting FEMA help for Hurricane Sandy.
Paul started this, dumbass.
Christie has never denied getting help for his State nor getting federal aid.
If Rand Paul wants to bitch about Christie then be best be sure he has never requested federal funds for his State.
Paul ran on ending pork but then said he is all for Kentucky pork.
That would make him a flaming hypocrite.

Why do you think this former ambassador doesn't know how the command structure in the State Department works, and how orders concerning coordination between the State Department and Department of Defense are issued?

The conviction of Army private Bradley Manning on espionage charges Tuesday makes it increasingly likely that the United States will prosecute WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as a co-conspirator, according to his attorney and civil liberties groups.

Judge Denise Lind, an Army colonel, found Manning guilty of several violations of the Espionage Act, and he could face life in prison. Press freedom advocates said the verdict adds to their alarm that the Obama administration’s aggressive pursuit of leakers will discourage whistleblowers from providing critical information on military and intelligence matters.

He should just join the Democratic Party. He's just a RINO.

<quoted text>How many republicans are killed by other republicans on a daily basis?
Along with the decline of the black family comes anti-social behavior, manifested by high crime rates. Each year, roughly 7,000 blacks are murdered.
94% percent of the time, the murderer is another black person.
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims. Using the 94% figure means that 262,621 were murdered by other blacks.
Though blacks are 13% of the nation's population, they account for more than 50% of homicide victims.
Nationally, the black homicide victimization rate is 6 times that of whites, and in some cities, it's 22 times that of whites.
But don't hold your breath for the president, the civil rights establishment, white liberals & the news media, who spent massive resources protesting the George Zimmerman trial's verdict, to tell the nation whether they believe that the major murder problem blacks face is murder by whites.
There are no such protests against the thousands of black murders.
There's an organization called NeighborhoodScout. Using 2011 population data from the U.S. Census Bureau, 2011 crime statistics from the FBI and information from 17,000 local law enforcement agencies in the country, it came up with a report titled "Top 25 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods in America." ( http://tinyurl.com/cdqrev4 ) They include neighborhoods in Detroit, Chicago, Houston, St. Louis and other major cities.
What's common to all 25 neighborhoods is that their makeup is described as "Black" or "Mostly Black." The high crime rates have several outcomes that are not in the best interests of the overwhelmingly law-abiding people in these neighborhoods. There can't be much economic development. Property has a lower value, but worst of all, people can't live with the kind of personal security that most Americans enjoy.
Disgustingly, black politicians, civil rights leaders, liberals and the president are talking nonsense about "having a conversation about race." That's beyond useless.
Tell me how a conversation with white people is going to stop black predators from preying on blacks. How is such a conversation going to eliminate the 75% illegitimacy rate?
What will such a conversation do about the breakdown of the black family (though "breakdown" is not the correct word, as the family doesn't form in the first place)?
Only black people can solve their own problems, but we Democrats don't want that. Plantations come in many forms and we're happy to keep them there so we can blame Republicans and keep them dependent on entitlements.
We Democrats substituted marriage & a father supporting his family with Uncle Sam paying all the bills for multiple generations.
do you know that anti-social white punks committed 8,641 murders in 2010? 84% of those being other white punks?

do you punks hate each other or what?? what is wrong with you people?? you'd think white parents would do a better job of raising their children!!

I think I would attribute it to the decline of white privilege. All of the whining must make for a loss of self control. If you watch FOX you can see various examples of white people losing control an a daily basis. So it's time we all had a serious discussion about what it will take to solve the ongoing problems that whining white people are causing in today's society.

if you agree with me grunt once. if you don't grunt twice. then haul your lily white ass back in your cave.

Tenzing said it was something we did in Iran back in the 1950s to protect our best interests against Russia's influence.
But, personally, I think the strict sanctions on Iraq during the Clinton administration that killed thousands of children probably made them the most angry.
Lesley Stahl interviewed Madeleine Albright on '60 Minutes' back on May 12, 1996:
Lesley Stahl (speaking of U.S. sanctions against Iraq): We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: I think this is a very hard choice, but the price--we think the price is worth it.
...Seems Clinton may have not only started the housing market collapse but the plot for 9/11.
More people died in Iraq under Clinton than Bush - ironically.
"Something we did in Iran in the 1950's".!!

white punks rioting!!!
Just when you thought that the surfing crowd was generally a laid back one, a riot broke out in Huntington Beach, Calif., Sunday evening following the close of the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing contest. And there’s video showing the chaos.
It took local law enforcement officials a few hours to put the riot down, according to KTLA-TV.
“The unrest occurred while officers were attempting to disperse crowds following the close of the Vans U.S. Open of Surfing,” the report notes.
Lt. Mitchell O’Brien told KTLA5.com the Huntington Beach Police Department was forced to request backup from other law-enforcement agencies.
“The area was declared an unlawful assembly and police moved in to make arrests,” a Huntington Beach Police Department press release notes.
One witness said the unrest led to property damage, including several overturned portable toilets and damaged police cruisers.
Officers dispersed crowds with pepper spray, the witness said.

President Obama Mocks John Boehner and the Republicans For Having No Jobs Plan

’40 meaningless votes to repeal Obamacare isn’t a jobs plan.’

Congress has a 12% approval rating. They deserve to be mocked and ridiculed at every turn. The president offered Republicans a grand bargain today. He said that he will work with them on reforming the tax code if the new revenue is put towards an effort to create middle class jobs. You can expect that “Jobs” John Boehner will reject this proposal outright, because Republicans want to use that money for more tax cuts. They have zero interest in creating jobs.

Republicans are all for the tax cutting part. They would love to see corporate taxes cut. It’s that whole job creation thing that they have a problem with. Republicans still believe that if they can keep the economy sluggish enough, they’ll take back the White House. It doesn’t occur to them that they will take any of the blame for sabotaging the nation’s employment situation. Republicans think that just saying the word jobs once a week is enough to fool the American people into believing that they care.

President Obama is calling their bluff. He is going to make the Republicans come out against creating middle class jobs. He wants Republicans to go on record as opposing middle class job creation. There is a critical election coming up next November, and President Obama is using these speeches on the economy to lay out a national Democratic platform. His speeches aren’t so much about what Obama can do today, but what the president could do with a Democratic led House behind him.

Beneath the mocking, the president set a shrewd political trap. He is daring House Republicans to go on the record as against creating jobs for the middle class. He wants them to reject another jobs plan. Obama is building the case for why the American people need to elect Democrats in 2014.

If there is more than 100 percent turnout, don't you think someone is voting as someone else, you moron?

And we haven't touched on the places where the Democrats were so stupid they programmed the voting machines to steal 100 percent of the vote. It was child's play to find those locations. Finding the locations where the Democrats programmed the voting machines to steal one in three or one in four votes is virtually impossible.
We don't have a democracy anymore.

I noticed every fraud Democrat here ran away from this post like it was a job application:

September 18, 1972, almost three months to the day after the Watergate burglary, John Kerry's brother Cameron and fellow VVAW activist Thomas Vallely are arrested in Lowell, Massachusetts in the basement of a building that housed his opponent's campaign headquarters. Cameron Kerry and Vallely are charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit larceny. Harvard created the Department of Vietnam Studies in the John F. Kennedy School of Government soon after this event and named Thomas Vallely its first department head.
