    Carney: ‘Benghazi Happened a Long Time Ago’

    White House spokesman Jay Carney said in response to a question about the September 11, 2012 Benghazi terror attack that it “happened a long time ago.”

    “Let’s be clear,” said Carney. “Benghazi happened a long time ago. We are unaware of any agency blocking an employee who would like to appear before Congress to provide information related to Benghazi.”

    It’s NOT a long time ago…..It was 8 months ago. We will NOT forget until the Obama administration and Hillary Clinton is punished!!

    Eric Holder and the Obama Admin’s Omerta on Islam And Terrorism

    It is a sad sight to watch a man grapple with a world that fails to meet his expectations. Unless that man is Eric Holder.

    Then it is simply infuriating.

    The attorney general, warped by his own prejudice, is confused because his fellow citizens are better people than he imagines.

    Holder sees white bigots around every corner, and can’t handle the truth that very few Americans actually hate Muslims.

    So, like Elmer Fudd hunting “wascally wabbits,” Holder’s shots usually backfire.

    His Monday speech to the Anti-Defamation League was a classic case of twisted thinking. With his FBI fumbling a chance to stop the Boston bombers, he bizarrely stressed his determination to punish anyone who discriminates against Muslims.

    Of course, he didn’t admit that the bombers were Islamists. That would violate the Obama administration’s omerta on linking Islam to terrorism.

    OF COURSE…OBAMA HAS INSTRUCTED ERIC HOLDER to protect the ISLANIC JIHADIST TERRORISTS AT ALL COSTS. Obama has to bow to his muslim brotherhood.

    Poll: Obama gets negative ratings on immigration, guns

    More people disapprove than approve of the way President Obama is handling immigration and guns, according to a new poll by Quinnipiac University.

    Fifty percent don’t like the way he is handling immigration policy, comparedwitho 40 percent who do, the poll found. That negative rating is due in large part to independents, 55 percent of whom disapprove of his handling of the issue. Only 34 percent approve.

    On gun policy, some 52 percent disapprove of his approach, while 41 percent approve. That could be due in part to the loss in the Senate of the gun control proposal he pushed for expanded background checks for gun buyers.

    He generally gets good marks on foreign policy in the poll — 47 percent approve of his overall approach to foreign policy, 54 percent approve of his handling of North Korea, and 55 percent approving of his handling of terrorism. On his handling of Syria, voters are basically split, with 37 percent approving and 35 percent disapproving.

    His overall job approval has remained relatively stable with 48 percent approving and 45 percent disapproving, compared with 49 percent approving and 45 percent disapproving a month earlier, Quinnipiac found.

    But a growing majority are dissatisfied with the direction of the country — 72 percent. That’s up from 69 percent a month earlier. Only 27 percent are satisfied, down from 30 percent last month.

    OF COURSE..EVEN THE LEFT WING HAS LOST FAITH IN OBAMA. Time for Obama to step down – he’s become IRRELEVANT!!

    Lawyer for Benghazi Whistle-blower: The Administration is Obstructing Justice

    An attorney for at least one would-be Benghazi whistle-blower told a Beltway radio host this morning that the Obama administration is deliberately obstructing justice to prevent her client from taking the requisite legal steps to reveal classified information in Congressional testimony.

    WE KNOW THIS ALREADY…..Obama along with Hillary will be impeached when all THE facts are finally revealed.

    Obama administration threatened whistle-blowers with decapitation.

    WHAT A PRESIDENT….He sounds like Assad or Kim Jong un….

    Obama has become very destructive.

  • Jeff

    OF COURSE…OBAMA HAS INSTRUCTED ERIC HOLDER to protect the ISLANIC JIHADIST TERRORISTS AT ALL COSTS. Obama has to bow to his muslim brotherhood……..MMMDERP!!

    Al-Qaida-tied Islamic extremists have made the United States their home since at least 8 years before the terrorist attack on 9/11, and one place they chose as a base of operations is none other than Boston.

    Jihadist activity has taken place in Massachusetts since at least 1993 and includes in-state fundraising for terrorism, “those convicted of planning jihad, and even those who have been killed while fighting abroad,” according to the report by terrorism analyst Robin Simcox.

    “Even prior to last week’s Boston bombing, there had been twenty-six individuals with links to Massachusetts connected to AQ [al Qaeda] and AQ-inspired terrorism,” the report notes. “Fifteen had lived in Massachusetts, with eleven 9/11 hijackers using the Boston area as a temporary base from which to launch their attacks.”

    In addition to individuals, the report lists organizations. Prominent among these is Care, International, which has been engaged in “fundraising, recruiting, and providing other forms of logistical support for violent jihad.”

    And the democrats…now along with Obama will got ANY AND ALL LENGTHS to protect Islamic Muslim Jidhadist Terrorists.

  • Chriscee

    Along with Obama…Jeff and USA have become IRRELEVANT!!

  • Mr. Gone

    Spewing White House propaganda and liberal rhetoric isn’t working out for MSNBC?
    Didnt they figure out that doesn’t work from Current TV?
    Hopefully , for MSNBC, Chris Hayes isn’t their best shot at fixing this.

    @Chriscee “oh please…take you network news numbers and stuff them…”

    Who pulled your dummy cord? LOL

    I specifically addressed that to Gianty who said the following:
    “I see these numbers (referring to the Cable News numbers above) and wonder why the left is still controlling the national narrative.”

    I simply showed that individual why. Got it…good!

    Obama is not running for office in 2016.

    Hillary and Bill will be back in the White House on Jan 2017 – Jan 2025.

    Hilarys age and health will be a big issue for her

  • Johnny

    @Jeff…I’m glad your starting to see the light

  • Chriscee

    Again…the left wing kooks will be taking a backseat in 2014 – they have already become irrelevant…just like Obama….as he said…

    He should just pack up his crap…and GO HOME!!

  • Chriscee


    Green car startup Coda Holdings filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Wednesday after selling just 100 of its all-electric sedans, another example of battery-powered vehicles’ failure to break into the mass market.

    The filing with U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware will allow the Los Angeles company to exit the auto sector and refocus on energy storage, a far less capital-intensive business.

    The company uses the same technology it used in cars to build systems for utilities and building operators to store power.

    FOR OBAMA….”GREEN ENERGY” is all about money laundering, bribes and pay backs.

  • Chriscee



    That’s the sound of msnBS, Obama and the Democrats IMPLODING!!!!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Chriscee” >>> Lawyer for Benghazi Whistle-blower: The Administration is Obstructing Justice <<<

    The Republicans and Independents should act soon on getting a Special Prosecutor to look into what's going on behind-the-scenes AND on-camera probably illegal acts in The White House. Watergate Revisited!

  • Jeff

    Back in the day, Chriscee would of laughed and cheered at the attempts made by Ford for making an automobile while shoveling her horses sh-t! Her views are stuck in the past along with the Republican Party.
    The demise of the Republican Party is inevitable with this mind set.

  • Coffee Steve

    I’m back and feeling sassy tonight :-)

    OK, so this is the new American workforce rules, Like Chris Matthews and the rest of the lineup, do bad, get lower ratings, lose viewers, and get a raise? Why didn’t I think of that :-)
