Video: Obama's Racially charged 2007 Speech

This video was billed as a bombshell that was released on Hannity's television show on October 2nd. It is from a June 5, 2007 speech that Barack Obama gave to a predominantly black audience that consisted of black ministers. Also in attendance was none other than Rev. Jeremiah Wright. At various points, Obama went off script. When he did, the unmasked community organizer was on full display.

In yet another instance of media bias, the transcript of the speech released by the media at the time only consisted of the prepared remarks, which equated to about one-fourth of the entire speech. No mention was made of Obama's off-script statements, which were quite incendiary. Now, the entire speech has been made available.

This is damning stuff for a a man who ran on a platform of healing in 2008.

Darrell Issa sends letter to Hillary Clinton over Benghazi Security

Fresh off a grueling, near two-year battle with the Justice Department over Operation Fast in Furious, Reps. Darrell Issa and Jason Chaffetz appear to be in the early stages of spearheading another investigation involving guns. This time, they want to know why there weren't any available in Benghazi. Issa and Chaffetz have fired off a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wanting to know why the State Department refused requests to secure the Benghazi consulate.

Via the Oversight website:
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee leaders today sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking why requests for more protection were denied to the U.S. mission in Libya by Washington officials prior to the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack that killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. The denials came after repeated attacks and security threats to U.S. personnel.

“Based on information provided to the Committee by individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya, the attack that claimed the ambassador’s life was the latest in a long line of attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the months leading up to September 11, 2012. It was clearly never, as Administration officials once insisted, the result of a popular protest,” the committee’s chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and subcommittee chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, write. “In addition, multiple U.S. federal government officials have confirmed to the Committee that, prior to the September 11 attack, the U.S. mission in Libya made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi. The mission in Libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in Washington.”

The letter outlines 13 security threats over the six months prior to the attack.
Issa has become quite seasoned in the art of long investigations. In fact, in many ways, operation Fast and Furious may be playing itself out in a completely new theater - in Mexico. Issa and Grassley never really let up and don't seem to be willing to do so even now but the work of Univision may permit them to see some of the fruits of their labor as the scandal explodes in the court of public opinion.

Meanwhile, Issa and company can shift their focus to what amounts to the inverse of Fast and Furious in the Middle East. The letter to Clinton chronicles several attacks and incidents in Benghazi that warranted increased security at the consulate.

Fast and Furious was about arming bad guys who murdered innocents. The 9/11 attack in Benghazi appears to be about NOT arming good guys who ended up being the murdered innocents.

Video: Fast and Furious - Under the Radar and Above the Law

Well worth the watch as a re-enactment of Brian Terry's murder is included. This is a short excerpt taken from what will be a full length documentary by Fleming Fuller. Be sure to watch all the way to the end as there are some powerful words put up on screen, set to some ominous music.

Breaking: Border Patrol agent shot and killed at Brian Terry Station

Two U.S. Border Patrol agents were shot early on October 2nd at a place that was dedicated to slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. One of the two shot today has died from his wounds.

Via Fox News:

Obama administration called out on Benghazi narrative by... CNN?

The issue of whether the attack on our Benghazi consulate was the spontaneous result of the anti-Muhammad film or a planned terrorist attack has all but been put to bed. The issue that hasn't been put to bed is why the Obama administration chose to enunciate the false talk track and not the true one - that it was indeed a terrorist attack.

Reports are in abundance that the CIA knew the truth within 24 hours. Yet, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice made the rounds on the Sunday talk shows 120 hours after the attack and repeatedly pushed the notion that it was spawned by the video.

CNN, the network that brought us the contents of Ambassador Christopher Stevens' diary seems to be asking some tough questions. In the exchange below, between Erin Burnett and her network's foreign affairs reporter Elise Labott, we learn that Labott's intelligence contacts told her the CIA knew within 24 hours that the attack on the consulate was coordinated. Yet, somehow the CIA is being expected to take the fall for Rice's comments several days later?

Burnett also asks a very prescient question toward the end of this exchange. Specifically, why wasn't Secretary of State Hillary Clinton the one making the rounds on the 9/16/12 Sunday shows instead of Rice? After all, Stevens was Hillary's employee and the consulate where he was housed was an extension of the State Department, which is out of Rice's purview. Labott essentially says that Hillary's political seasoning and experience likely told her that telling the lie was untenable, she knew it, and someone other than her needed to push it.

On a side note, using the mainstream media's standards for conservatives, why isn't it considered racist to protect Hillary by sending Rice, who happens to be black, out to lie when it was Hillary's lie to tell?

Instead, the buck stops with the... U.N. Ambassador?

Via CNN (h/t Hot Air):

Rice's role in this particular instance is reminiscent of Jim Carrey's role with Globodyne. Sent out to spin the un-spinnable, Carrey takes the fall in much the same way Rice seems to be doing.

Ignore Ralph Nader... if you can.

Now that the lie about the Benghazi attacks being the spontaneous result of an anti-Muhammad film has become all but proven, another question that must be answered is why it was told in the first place. There very well may be several reasons, like spiking the bin Laden football at the DNC, five days before the attack but there's a more nefarious possibility - the same motive the Muslim world has for telling the same lie.

Attacking our first amendment right of free speech.

Let's not forget this exchange between Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) and Thomas E. Perez, Assistant Attorney General over the Civil Rights division, back in July. I've posted this before but in light of Rice's words being demonstrably false, coupled with their being congruent with the Muslim Brotherhood's narrative that the video was responsible, this exchange is perhaps a bit more timely:
