Friday/Weekend Open Thread

Posted by: ST on November 16, 2012 at 11:57 am

Hey gang,

Hectic day so far and I know Phineas is tied up today as well, so I wanted to create an open thread because there seems to be a lot going on in the news today what with the news of the Hostess closing announcement as well as Petraeus’ testimony before House and Senate committees on the Benghazi matter. Please feel free to share your thoughts on those topics or whatever you wish to talk about.

Will check back in when I can. Enjoy your Friday, everyone. :)

    Here is a look ahead for the next four years. Now that Obhammud is getting his feet held to the fire over Benghazi he has decided he wants to adopt the image of being a credible world leader to be taken seriously. But for the past four years he has tried to act like some trail blazing recalcitrant thinking it is an original act which it is not (Eccl.1). He has damaged the power and prestige of this nation where prestige is the shadow cast by power, which has a very deterring effect. Per the diplomatic cables from Wikileaks no one takes him as seriously as he does himself. What it boils down to is the die is cast “For they sow the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind.” (Hosea 8:7). He is about to embark on a long hard journey only to find out how short the walk is from the White House to the outhouse.

    Interesting the anti-semetic hatred the left shows for Israel.
    Hamas can launch hundreds of rockets into Israel and not a word from them. Israel launches a defensive response to these attacks and it’s protest time again… it’s the aggression of Israel that needs to be stopped… Palestinians are only defending themselves… etc.

    Between the lies of our own left and the lies of jihadis, you have to wonder if it’s a contest on who can be more absurd.

  3. Drew the Infidel says:

    @Sefton–Agreed about the lies of the left. It is shocking to have read former POW Robbie Risner’s “The Passing of the Night” and his telling of a forced visit to the “War Crimes Museum” propagandizing the war and then reading “Unfit For Command” by O’Neill and Corsi and seeing a photo of John Kerry touring that same “museum” as an honored guest of the Hanoi government. In any conflict involving the US and another country the left feels there is only one side–theirs.

    Here’s mine: Obama fan and liberal dimwit Janeane Garofalo didn’t know she was married for twenty years:

    My question: Will she now file amended tax returns so that she may pay the marriage penalty?

    I was just thinking…..

    Who is less popular in the Republican party right now…Todd Akin or Chris Christie?

    The 2016 campaign has begun. Warren Buffet came out in support of Hillary for President this week. Does that make Obama a lame duck already?

    It amazes me that the big 3 TV networks don’t seem to care that their viewership keeps going lower and lower because their coverage is so blatently biased. It’s the same short-sightedness that the hostess bakers union just showed by ‘standing strong’. Now they can stand strong toghther in the unemployment line.

    Dennis Miller had it exactly right when he said ‘if Mitt Romney is what is wrong with this country, then we’ve really got a problem’. He should be President-elect right now.

    So far I just do not see the appeal of Bobby Jindal. Is it just me?

  6. Drew the Infidel says:

    @myballs–My vote is Chris “Quisling”.

  7. Great White Rat says:

    OK, who’s off to start hoarding the last of the remaining Twinkies stock, now that Obama’s union buddies have overplayed their hand and managed to put themselves out of jobs?

  8. BBHunter says:

    – ZOMG……This is a total disaster. What are all the Leftdork World of Warcraft basement dwellers going to do for food…..They’ll starve without Twinkies to wash down with their Mountain dew!

    – In other news….

    Here’s a bedtime story for you concerning the real truth behinf the entite BenghaziGate mess:

    1.The Consulate was a seldom used cover for a massive CIA operation in Libya. Amb. Stenens was seldom even there. The CIA was desperately looking for those WMD’s that have fallen into militant hands since the Syris war started, along with other weapoms they have supplied to the Syrian rebels. Al Qaeda got wind of the CIA presense from moles in the security force working at the Consulate and decided to use the cover of the ‘protests’ to take out the CIA station. They wanted to recover several militant prisoners the CIA had captured and were interogating at the Annex. Al Qaeda wanted to use Stevens to exchange for the militants, but as things turned out he was so badly injired and they knew they only had a limiyed time before the Libyan gov was forced to stop the attack, so they turned to the Annex and attacked it until the remaining CIA people handed over the prisoners.

    2. The WH and CIA could not risk trying a rescue because the whole undercover operation would have come to light if anything went wrong, and Jug ears couldn’t let them do anything for other reasons. So they all sat there and watched as 4 Americans were murdered.

    Obama couldn’t allow any of this to come out before the election. For the entire election year, and even before, his campaogn had been doing everything possible, along with help from the whore media, to suppress his war hawk activities. They knew that he was barely keeping his nose above the cesspool water line in the election, and any outnreak of his base over his war record would doom him. A story about toturing militant prisoners would be the end. So the WH concocted the video story, totally editing the CIA report, and used that to lie over the dead bodies and to the American people for over two weeks until they could get past the election. They didn’t care. They would deal with it after when they could control the press and a lot of people they have dirt on.

    3. Patraeus put a wrench in the plan when he announced his affair, taking the blackmail tool away from the King rat. The CIA gave the WH the true accessment, and Obama could have said it was under investigation and a matter of national security, but instead they used the video cover up and lied to help drag him over the finish line. You might recall that in the early days of the rioting the ‘video’ suddenly appeared from out of nowhere. that was the CIA/WH feeding the Leftwing press so they’d deive that narrative as haes as possible. Problem is that it worked TOO well, and probably caused the attack in the end.

    – Obama, Axelrod, Jarrett, Penetta, Rice, Carney, everyone of them went out and lied to the entire country for weeks.

    – Bottom line. All they care about is keeping power. The commie media, the CIA, and the president and the entire administration are directly responsible for the murder of 4 Americans.

    – Words simply can not express how disgusted these rats make me.
