Letter: Remember Benghazi

As Sept. 11 quickly approaches, I am heartened at the number of letters I see regarding Benghazi.

As Hillary prepares to run for President of the United States, let us not forget what a deceitful liar she is, not to mention callous. Remember her statement, "At this point, what does it matter anyway?" Tell that to the families of the four young, brave Americans told to "Stand down!"

Why has a select committee not been chosen yet to subpoena those who know more than they are letting on? What has our country come to and where is the justice? If four members of Congress had been murdered, Obama would be right on it. He is equally as guilty!

For those who didn't , I watched the Benghazi hearings two nights in a row until 2 AM. Admiral Pickering and Mike Mullins played word games, said no stand down orders were given. Except, one slipped, that people were ready to go and were told to stay. Hey Mullins, that IS a stand down order.

Fired Afriscom head Gen Ham was supposedly trying to send help anyway, was fired in the middle of the fighting.

Two parents invited, were Navy Seal Ty Woods Father, Sean Smith's Mother. Republicans thanked them, promised they would never stop until the truth emerges. Six read Bible verses. Some Republican Congressmen wept.

No Dems followed suit - at the break to change panels, except for one, they all left AND NEVER RETURNED. Why they didn't leave a poster with a finger and SCREW YOU written on it, I don't know.

Amazing Republicans including our own Gosar gave long lists of those in Benghazi, never even interviewed. Hillary - NEVER INVESTIGATED.

The committee doesn't have report copies but second day out, IT APPEARED ON AL JAZEERA.

First recipient, HILLARY TO MAKE CHANGES SHE DIDN'T LIKE, SHE BEING THE ONE NEEDING TO BE INVESTIGATED. Simply amazing. 200WC

@FLS/Miner....I reached CNN this morning at 404--827-1500 to request that they research and provide me with the exact date of Wolf Blitzer reading that brief White House statement "Symbolism IS substance". If, for whatever reason, I do not receive a response by early next week, I will follow through by e-mail, another option they provide which I consider a little less personal. You WILL hear of my results. They are claiming to research enquiries like mine. From FLS' statements here, it is obvious to me that he did not bother to follow this procedure before accusing me of lying (not enough time had elapsed for even a negative answer).

Ms Athens

“This coming Thursday, Sept 19,2013 is the Issa hearing on Benghazi.”

Again? This clown has cost us millions of tax dollars and wasted time with his “hearings” that never lead anywhere or prove anything. What an idiot and he needs to be towed out of office.

“… they should be given a vacation at Gitmo....since it's still open. Hahahaha!...
Another promise kept. NOT!”

You are aware that on his second day in office Obama signed an executive order to shut down Gitmo and the Republiscums blocked the funds to make it happen? And they have blocked the funding each time Obama has requested the closing of Gitmo.

So this mess is – as usual – the fault of the Republiscums - hahahahahaha!

Benghazi is just one of a long list of right wing snake oil addicts dreams and fantasies of how they are going to impeach Obama!:-)

Addressing FLS' allegations of my lying about Wolf Blitzer reading a White House statement on CNN, which I inferred had arisen out of a letter I wrote earlier to Laura Bush --- I wrote to her following her visit to Las Vegas about two weeks before the 2004 presidential election - meaning about the 3rd week of October. I remember clearly that it was 3 weeks later that I received a response from the White House (meaning about the 2nd week of November), and that it was then a couple days later when Wolf Blitzer read the White House statement. My signature in the letter, of course, was handwritten and obviously not clear to Mrs. Bush's chief of staff, who responded by addressing me as Mr. Junguist. She said that Mrs. Bush was impressed by my thinking. But Las Vegas police were not, as I have previously written. I intend to contact CNN tomorrow in hopes of documenting an exact date for what I wrote.

This coming Thursday, Sept 19,2013 is the Issa hearing on Benghazi.

It will include the committee tasked to look into what happened....only they never even questioned Hillary or two others that normally would have been the FIRST ones questioned...except that the committee were all lefties.

So let's see how they answer under oath why they didn't. Lie, and they should be given a vacation at Gitmo....since it's still open. Hahahaha!

Another promise kept. NOT!

http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/05/08/weinstein.pelosi/index.html --- I don't suppose the Miner will print this link, but it's to CNN's White House correspondent at the time, Ed Henry, whose article here was the online corollary to Wolf Blitzer's afternoon report containing the account, with some supplementary details. Normally, CNN will run these simultaneously, so I presume that Blitzer's coverage would have been on the afternoon of May 8th 2008. This took me all of 90 seconds online. I haven't begun to trace down the White House blurb which Frank Lee Speaking disparages. That might take a little longer (lol).

@FLS....the Wolf Blitzer story on Harvey Weinstein took place in May 2008. The Miner doesn't allow links, so I can only point you to Ed Henry's coverage on CNN's website on 8th May 2008. Some of the specifics - Weinstein was very unhappy with Florida voting results and as a powerful film magnate, threatened Nancy Pelosi with witholding normally substantial financial contributions from the film industry to the Democratic cause unless she and other top democratic leaders didn't find a way to reverse the voting results. Wolf Blitzer's account included a colourful commentary on Pelosi's reaction. That is what I meant by his áffair' with Pelosi, something you would have discovered with just a little effort.

@pl......

"sorry you didn't find the Wolf Blitzer comment, but it did take place."

No it did not, a search says it did not. I searched again and still nothing. I have not a doubt at all that you actually believe, in the playground of your mind, that it was said and as a result of some letter you claim to have wrote.

"Looks like they've been doing some scrubbing"

Saw that coming. Of course a conspiracy buff would think the net is being scrubbed because of the threat they pose to the power elite. You are priceless, but predictable.

"Your rebuttal is weak."

Compared to your fairy tales, it is as strong as iron.

"Mohammed Atta's paper passport found in molten rubble? Can't find that, either? "

This is not about 9/11, Phil. But yeah, I can find that one. Just not at any reputable source. Just at general tin-foil hat conspiracy loon sites.

It's not always all about you. You just imagine it is.

LOL

@pl......

"......awakened by knocking on my door at themonthly otel in Bullhead City where I have lived since October 2011,"..... "....it was the Bullhead City police, looking for a wanted woman who during a prior xcontact with police -I am to believe - had supposedly given my room number as her address."'

Here's a crazy thought. Maybe, just maybe, the cops would have good reason to visit a hotel that likely comes complete with hot and cold running methheads and criminals on a regular, even daily, basis to look for someone.

“.....it was just a friendly reminder not to get too specific about government's crimes.”

Face it, pl....., someone living in a Bullhead City hotel is not a threat to the world or local power structure in any way, shape, or form. Is this your new excuse for being not “too specific” any more about when indictments and arrests will be coming? “Freindly reminders” not too do so?

“remember when someone like myself hits the spotlight.”

Can I use that quote in a future “I knew him when”, book?

It ain't always about you.

LOL

The original letter here is about the Benghazi incident, wherein a couple Navy SEALS thwarted our government's plan - that our throat-slitting al-qaeda thugs would simply kidnap the U.S. ambassador for tradeoff so a top Muslim Brotherhood official would be released. Our SEALS managed to take out 80 throat-slitters, which naturally enraged these U.S. assets, so they raped and murdered the ambassador, dragging his violated corpse around as they did to Moammar Qaddafi in Libya earlier. Anyway - I'll direct this to Frank Lee Speaking - Yom Kippur begins in a few hours. In 1973, I barely made it out of Israel before they were attacked. I'd tell you how I was warned, but you'd call me a liar. Anonymously, of course. It's awesome, being in the presence of such character here.

“…there will be an open hearing next week on Benghazi by Issa's committee so watch for it.”

More time and money wasted by Issa on something that has already been proven to be nothing more than another of his idiotic witch-hunts that NEVER turn up anything.

“There will be a big surprise concerning Hillary …”

Yes, we’ve all heard that same whine before (usually from that fool Beck) and nothing ever turns up. What is it with righties and their “big surprises” that develop into – nothing, ever?

I find it funny that an Ex KGB tyrant has stymied a nobel peace prize winner's attempt at starting a war.

OMG, WMD! how long before the dems start crying about an illegal war started by the savior?

Oh, wait. His name is not Bush or Regan. All is forgiven.

Joan: Attorney Victoria Toensing said on TV today there will be an open hearing next week on Benghazi by Issa's committee so watch for it. They have all run on C-Span. There will be a big surprise concerning Hillary she said.

Capt Nice: Obviously Putin has rolled obama big time. The KGB thug looks more presidential than the little community organizer POTUS. How sad for us. There is no way to undo the damage obama has done this time but on the stupidity of trusting Putin and Syria with the chemical weapons, I have heard no less than five experts say it would take 10-12 years to do so if all went well...which it couldn't possibly since the country is in the middle of a civil war.

On that war, I also hear Al Qaeda has pretty much taken over the more moderate groups - so we have NOONE on whose side to be on there. The answer. Stay the hell out.

Funny isn't it, how grizzly late term abortions in the US never bothered obama - he in fact, pushed for them. Gassing thousands in Iraq never bothered him. But 400 dead gassed people in Syria does? Go figure!

@FLS.....sorry you didn't find the Wolf Blitzer comment, but it did take place. While you're doing homework, find Wolf Blitzer's report on Harvey Weinstein's little affair with Nancy Pelosi down in Florida. Can't find that, either? Looks like they've been doing some scrubbing. Yes, I wrote about the Bush quote in Australian media, but I can't find it surprising that every imaginable quote from the White House or other sources isn't available. Your rebuttal is weak. And the government's crimes are real. Like the pre-911 indicators in film, as in "Enemy Of The State". Hey, Frank - what about Mohammed Atta's paper passport found in molten rubble? Can't find that, either? Love hearing from you.

When Choosing Leaders, Remember Performance

And now a word from your paid political advertisement?

@Phillip Lundquist....

"I wrote a letter to her, mentioning that government prefers symbolism over substance."......."

Sure you did.

“....Wolf Blitzer interrupted his afternoon news show to read a White House statement that said, "Symbolism IS substance!".

Searched for that quote by Blitzer. Does not exist. Only thing close is from a Blitzer transcript dated 02/22/05. A report on Bush in Europe. Subject , NATO countries involved in Iraq. Used by CNN's Susanne Malveaux in Brussels: “But according to one European Union official, sometimes SYMBOLISM IS SUBSTANCE”.

Bush on TV..... "those who have undermined our efforts, as in Las Vegas".

Searched for that Bush quote. Only link is to you claiming it again at "bilegrip (dot) com", a Australian website, on 02/24/07.

Loved this line in it on another matter: "…...when a police helicopter roared overhead and spotlighted me."

Should have used it in your KDM comment.

“...not the end of the account.”

Never is, Phil.

“who - generally speaking - tends to come across as more credible?

Generally speaking? Someone with actual credibility.

Don't make up things I can easily search for, Phil. You lose that way.

LOL

So this is September 11th, and we're limited to 200 words about the turning of history. After Laura Bush appeared in Las Vegas in October 2004 as part of her husband's presidential campaign (and praised a national law enforcement conference being held that week at the Las Vegas Hilton), I wrote a letter to her, mentioning that government prefers symbolism over substance. A few days later, Wolf Blitzer interrupted his afternoon news show to read a White House statement that said, "Symbolism IS substance!". That letter was not all I wrote, and President Bush came on TV later to mention "those who have undermined our efforts, as in Las Vegas". Police played their role there, and landed on me upon my arrival in Kingman, May 19th 2008 when I first stayed at the El Trovotore Motel. With a 200-word limit here and trillions oif dollars out there, who - generally speaking - tends to come across as more credible? Shame on everyone who claims to have no time to know what has happened.

well, I can't say that the silence has been deafening here - two days ago, while taking an afternoon nap, I was awakened by knocking on my door at themonthly otel in Bullhead City where I have lived since October 2011, when I departed the Kingman Asylum. Anyway, it was the Bullhead City police, looking for a wanted woman who during a prior xcontact with police - I am to believe - had supposedly given my room number as her address. Nothing came of this, but surely it was just a friendly reminder not to get too specific about government's crimes.

I've seen the Miner print successive posts from your patriarch, Linda Athens. And mine today have not reached the magic number of five. So here we go, our nation at stake under the weight of an out of control criminal government, and we're limited to 2oo words. When do we get to confront the criminals in Kingman for their crimes against? When do we get to tell the truth in your infamous "court of law"? On a national scale, when will our current and former leaders be indicted for historic crimes against us? Too bad I'm not asking these questions with my blue lights flickering behind, one hand on my pistol, and that shiny badge that does not reflect the sordid psychopathic truths behind it.

Article comment by: Who cares how many words - everything's at stake! (pl)

it's so strange, having posted provocative (and true) statements in my previous post, and nobody responds iun challenge, particularly nobody in government - because they cannot. As of today, phone calls and e-mails to senators and congress against war in Syria are running about 99.98% against war, and .02% in favour of war. But who among you believes this will dissuade our leaders from going ahead anyway? This was the same mentality behind them flying billions of dollars worth of illegal drugs into America, while focusing their mocking and other criminal efforts towards individuals who spoke about about their crimes - like myself. Go ahead, officer Whoever - by all means, put your name and agency on the line, and deny one thing I have written here (and your other crimes). Let their silence scare the beejeebies out of you. And remember when someone like myself hits the spotlight.

As we approach September 11th, it's best to remember how our criminal overlords laid it out - for those who knew what to look for - in major collusively-produced Hollywood films beforehand. Several months ago, someone identifying themself as a law enforcement officer expressed their indignation here when I made the same point, with the implication that they are keeping these mass-murdering psychopaths in power by intimidating our dissent. I can only repeat what I know absolutely to be the facts. Here we go on another war based upon a pack of lies, in all likelihood based, in fact, upon this government's own crimes (even if carried out by lackeys). I haven't been to the films lately, so can't tell you whether they foretold this one. They're getting really transparent, meaning they're really confident about your ignorance and apathy. You people mscare me almost as much as them, and nowadays I'm refusing to be scared anymore. Fill in the blanks.

Maybe it's time for WW3, maybe Obama didn't just go to the G20 for a meeting. Maybe he is going to ask for asylum? Everyone remember the "I'll have more flexibility after the election" statement. We may actually find out exactly what that meant! Then you have the VP to deal with.

I would like to elaborate on my first letter and it is quite disturbing.
When obama goes in and lobs some Tomahawks at targets that have nothing there or have women and children where launch sites used to be.
What will happen if the Russians or any of the enemy launch a missile at one of our ships or even our aircraft carrier and sinks it along with 4000 plus sailors...I wish I had heard one of our elected idiots ask that question and what will we do then.....world war three?
I have a bad feeling that is going to happen and with our diminished military,,thanks to obama..what will we do? Who will be the one getting punished.
