Was Obama involved in a conspiracy to kill the US Ambassador to Libya?
I wasn't aware of a conspiracy. If you want to start with conspiracies why not start with the first President that had under his watch non-military Americans killed by terrorist? Why was it Reagan started the al-Qaeda camps using the CIA and then within a few years had hundreds of Americans killed by them in Beirut?

HEY STUPID! When Barak Obama was of military age we weren't involved in any major conflicts. Mitt Romney on the other hand was pro draft and pro war during the Vietnam conflict but bugged out to France rather than serving himself. George W used his daddy's pull to get into the Texas ANG and a safe state side assignment and Dick Cheney got five deferments.
You're an idiot!
Shrub's military records read like a Stephen King novel. How someone who did so very little could achieve that many pages of service history is a real head scratcher.

Wall Street Journal To GOP:'It's Time To Wrap Up This Comedy Of Political Errors'

As it has throughout the disputes over the budget and debt limit, the conservative editorial page of the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday took aim at the Republican Party.

Although the Journal's editorial writers said that "both sides are looking like losers" in the duel crises consuming Washington, they directed their most pointed shots at the GOP.

"This is the quality of thinking—or lack thereof—that has afflicted many GOP conservatives from the beginning of this budget showdown," the editorial read. "They picked a goal they couldn't achieve in trying to defund ObamaCare from one House of Congress, and then they picked a means they couldn't sustain politically by pursuing a long government shutdown and threatening to blow through the debt limit."

The Journal said that if the Senate passes its compromise to avert default and reopen the government, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) will likely have no choice "other than to bring it to the floor and let it pass with votes from either party."

"At least that's better than getting the blame for whatever happens if Treasury stops sending out Social Security checks in order to prioritize debt repayments," the editorial read. "The politics of that are little better than defaulting on debt. Republicans can best help their cause now by getting this over with and moving on to fight more intelligently another day."'

I’m now old enough to remember two federal government shutdowns.

Both turned out poorly for Republicans.

The difference this time was that every sane observer strongly suspected it was going to work out poorly for Republicans.

In the end, they won’t even get peanuts. They’ll get the discarded shells of peanuts.

The most infuriating, tear-out-your-hair reaction to the House GOP implosion came from Reps. Thomas Massie and Joe Barton, Republicans of Kentucky and Texas respectively: that “no deal is better than a bad deal.” No deal? Seriously? Ponder that for a moment: A faction of House Republicans, at the not-so-secret urging of Sen. Ted Cruz, noisily insisted on a foolish confrontation with Senate Democrats and the White House. Once that confrontation ended fruitlessly—as critics predicted it would—this faction skulked away and left its leadership dangling and embarrassed.

This is akin to goading a friend into a bar fight and then watching helplessly as he’s kneed in the crotch.

The Democrats' plan is easy to deduce when you compare something like ObamaKare to Machiavelli's "The Prince" and Karl Marx's "Das Kapital".
That's how you know what the Democrats' plan is.

Obama's plan is the same as it has been his entire life. To continue doing what he's ordered to do so he can continue to ride in the gold seat on the government gravy train.

According to the U.S. Senate, the individual right to keep and bear arms under the Second Amendment is debatable.
US Senate Says Right to Keep & Bear Arms is Debatable 151013gun

Image: Gun Show.

A Senate.gov guide to the Constitution contains an “explanation” next to every section and amendment of America’s founding document.

The Second Amendment guarantees,“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

However, according to the Senate website,“Whether this provision protects the individual’s right to own firearms or whether it deals only with the collective right of the people to arm and maintain a militia has long been debated.”

The “explanation” makes no mention of a 2008 Supreme Court ruling (District of Columbia v. Heller), which affirmed that the Second Amendment protects the individual right to own guns.

A separate Supreme Court ruling in 2010 confirmed that the Second Amendment right for an individual to keep and bear arms applied to both state and local gun control laws.

The Senate website reads like a signing statement for the entire Constitution. Every single section and right is ‘explained’ and in some cases re-interpreted.

US Senate Says Right to Keep & Bear Arms is Debatable 151013sen
Screenshot from the Senate.gov website.

As Ali Papademetriou highlights, schools are also erroneously using the Senate’s interpretation of the Second Amendment to suggest that the right for Americans to own firearms is restricted to state militias.

American History students at Denton Guyer High School in Texas are being taught that,“The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia,” under the Second Amendment, implying that there is no individual right to own guns.

The First Amendment is also summarized as meaning only that,“Congress may not favor one religion over another.”

Many Americans would be concerned to realize that the very body concerned with upholding and protecting their rights under the mandate of the Constitution – the U.S. Senate – refuses to fully acknowledge the fundamental right to keep and bear arms under the Second Amendment.

What's the connection between
gun control... a recent executive order...
and the coming food crisis?
Fellow patriot,
There's a reason why the US government is so eager to disarm the American people.
It's got little to do with crime rates or mass murders... but everything to do with the very reason the 2nd Amendment was created for: to protect the people from a tyrannical government.
Because when a major disaster hits the USA, a recent executive order allows FEMA to confiscate your food stockpile... and just like in the old USSR, to give it to the government-dependent masses.
That's right: if you invested $30,000 or more in a survival stockpile, or you've been day-dreaming about having enough food to last you a decade... then you've got to watch this urgent video.
Hi, my name is Alec Deacon, and in this short and controversial presentation, that will not be up for long, I'm going to expose how a devastating "once in 60 years" event... along with corporate greed and corruption... are setting the stage for a social and economic "time bomb" that will detonate right in the middle of the US...
... I'll reveal how
... the impending collapse of the US food supply system
will steal the food from your kids' tables...
... leaving them hungry and helpless and forcing them to scavenge for scraps...
... and I'll explain what you must do today to ensure that you and your family not only survive... but actually rise to the top of a fallen society... when chaos rules and communities need someone to lead them.
But that's not all. If you stick until the end of this very short presentation...I'll give you a somewhat weird... but insanely effective way to build a 5 year... 10 year... even 20 year stockpile of super-nutritious food... that the government can't confiscate from you in a crisis. Best of all: this still secret method costs you up to 20 times LESS than you'd have to pay on "survival food"... literally just a few cents per meal.
Like I said... my name is Alec Deacon. You may know me from my website MyFamilySurvivalPlan.com , one of the fastest growing patriot sites. Or you may have seen my warnings on websites like WND.com , Infowars.com or SHTFplan.com .
I'm that guy who's "bitterly clinging to his guns and bibles", like liberals love to say. You bet I am.
Because I'm almost religious about my right to be independent... to bear arms... and to be able to feed myself and my family.
That's why I've made it my life's purpose to expose to true patriots the hidden dangers that threaten our rights... and our very existence.
In my latest research, I uncovered four shocking signs of an impending economic collapse that will cripple the food supply system... and can force your family to struggle for mere survival.
I call these signs...
"The Four Horsemen of the Food Apocalypse"
...because they bring with them a deadly social and economic crisis... with immediate effects on your ability to feed your family.
And if you don't act fast, if you don't act now, you're going to miss your chance forever... a chance to finally become self-sufficient and independent, a chance to make your family "recession-proof" and "disaster proof", while the unprepared "zombies" will be starving and killing each other over a loaf of rotten bread.
The first horseman is Hunger... and it came with the searing heat of last year.
The summer of 2012 brought massive drought, devastation and despair to farmers all over the globe...and we're just starting to feel the hard hitting effects. World granaries like Russia and Kazakhstan were scorched by hellish temperatures. Crops in Ukraine were pummeled, corn was reduced to desolating burnt stalks. And with a 15% drop in the Indian monsoon... a historical drought in Australia... and an appalling harvest in Mexico... no one was spared.
That's some real funny chit pal__ya got any more???

Sandy Hook: Grieving the unthinkable

The Communist Party USA offers its most heartfelt condolences to the parents and families of the victims of the horrendous crime and tragedy which took place today at Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Connecticut. To say that 20 young children were gunned down in their elementary school as were six adults - teachers, staff and principal - is so unspeakable and heinous it boggles the minds and hearts of our members as it does all Americans. We extend condolences to the entire community of Newtown and the state of Connecticut as all begin the terrible grieving process. Our members grieve with you and offer support today and the many hard days to come.

It should also be said that we recognize the incredible courage of teachers, staff, parents and the first responders, who held it together in order to usher the rest of the children to safety.

The ages of the overwhelming majority of the victims in this mass shooting make this crime particularly heartbreaking and tragic. Yet, too often our country has to grieve and question mass murder by a lone killer armed with guns and assault weapons - just this year in Oregon, Wisconsin and Colorado. Too often mass murder also occurs one by one, day by day on the streets of our cities and towns. President Barack Obama told the nation today, "As a country, we have been through this too many times. Whether it's an elementary school in Newtown, or a shopping mall in Oregon, or a temple in Wisconsin, or a movie theater in Aurora, or a street corner in Chicago - these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods, and these children are our children. And we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics."

As the country grapples with the politics and aftermath of Sandy Hook, let us not forget that there are some who profit from the manufacturing and peddling of assault weapons, dealing in fear and offering constitutional and political cover for the unthinkable. We will continue to work for bringing the necessary coalitions together that - through common sense and a common stance - work for a culture, government and country where such tragedies and crimes are indeed unthinkable and unheard of.
