Benghazi worse than Watergate? You bet it is!
Yesterday we heard from three of the "Whistle-blowers" during the Benghazi hearings. I watched as many did in awe of them recounting events that contradict what Susan Rice, Hilary Clinton, Obama, Jay Carney, etc. all of said. Besides this hearing, and the depth of what it all means in search for the truth I found myself amazed at the left's take on this. Seemingly downplaying the entire fiasco as just another political witch hunt from the right. However, let me take you back through the mist of time:
You may recall a little event that took down a presidency called Watergate. May I point out that no one died during this scandal. Richard Nixon resigned because of it, and deservedly so. The crime? A break in to the DNC, combined with burglary. I was young, but equally interested in politics as I am today. I wanted to know the truth! So did the left. They were relentless in finding out what had happened. The media was too. Each night the top story was Watergate. Although back then my youth did not know the severity of a left wing media. Back then I believed that the media was not biased. Back then I could not even fathom a biased media. I had faith in journalists that they would not slant a story, or even ignore one if it meant deceiving the American public. To be fair, now that I do know that the media was biased even back then, still they did the right job. Finding the truth. Little did I know that it was more due to pushing their liberal agenda then actually revealing the truth for the sake of justice. However, they did discover the truth, and sure enough there were major consequences for the Republicans.
With Benghazi, the left wing media today reveals they are not about finding the truth for the sake of justice. They are in full denial mode, and it is not due to ignorance. It is deliberate. While they hardly even covered the hearings, they did downplay it with reports. They did this as well with Fast and Furious (Which people also died), and one can even claim they are doing it with the Boston Marathon Bombing as to downplay radical Islam in this country.
From John Stewart, to Rachel Maddow, Chris Mathews and so many reporters from CBS, NBC, ABC and of course Obama's news station: MSNBC all either down playing that lies were told by so many in the administration. They took Hilary's rant "What difference does it make..." and have ran with it.
We now know they knew (the administration) by the testimony of the three, in my opinion, heroes: Gregory Hicks, Eric Nordstrom and Mark Thompson. Still the search for truth by the left no longer matters as it did with Watergate. It doesn't serve their purpose. In fact, it is perceived as an attack on what they believe, or rather an attack on Obama is an attack on them. They are defenders of Liberalism, defenders of lies, and defenders of anything that is against what this country was founded upon. Specially, they are defenders of Obama. All one has to do is listen to them. They are not reporting this as a search for truth. They are reporting on Benghazi (when reporting it at all) as a defense attorney would defend a client. It makes me ponder if Richard Nixon was a Democrat, would there even have been a scandal?
We all now know Benghazi was not caused by a video as claimed by Obama, Hilary, Susan Rice, and the left wing media. In fact the chain of events (Timeline) starts months before 9/11 when time and time again requests for security was denied by Hilary's office. Even at one point downsized. (If interested, here are those chains of events): http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2013/05/damning-proof-of-dereliction-of-duty.html
The testimony was riveting. I find it somewhat downright insulting to the American public that those on the left claim this is for political reasons. Hicks himself voted for Obama twice! If you are on the left, or right, and have not seen the testimony you should as an American wanting to know the truth. No matter what your political party is, truth is truth. Democrats and Republicans both do things that are horrible to the American people, and just because we may be on the team of the wrong doers, we should not defend them. If we do, we are just as wrong as they are. Listen to part of the hearing of these brave men testifying, then listen to how the left wing media downplayed it...
Highlights of astounding testimony:
Left wing media downplaying the hearing:
The left denying we could have sent help in time as fallen through the cracks. It is now known we could have been there during the second attack. Also, no one knew how long it would have gone on for? So help should have been sent. However, they were told to "Stand Down". It is now known this was NOT due to a video, and it was known then too, but Susan Rice went on 5 networks to claim it was a protest due to a video a week later, as Hilary did as well with the caskets behind her of the fallen victims. It is now known requests to beef up security months ahead, including just days before were denied. It is now known that Obama did not talk to Penneta. Instead, Obama went to bed and a fund raiser the next day. ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4enyBcNFNs
But why? Why create this illusion that it was our fault for insulting them? The fault of offending Islam via internet video? In my opinion it is two fold. 1) A continuation of the appeasement of Islam. This administration bends over backwards to include Islam as a viable friendly religion. Well, it is. However, this administration includes the radicals of Islam in that mix, which they are not. Sending help to Benghazi would have, in the administration's view, been seen by Islam as a declaration of war, not a reaction to their action. Not by Libya but by Islam as a whole. This the administration could not have that happen several weeks before a Presidential election. Which brings me to the other reason: 2) The administration needed to down play this horrific event due to that election itself. Pile the lies and don't reveal facts would help solidify an election. Come out with the truth? and we may have had a different President today, President Romney.
So, what of Watergate? in comparison this is worse than Watergate. So wouldn't you think the outcome should be at the very least equal? Or should we just jump on board with Hilary and say "What difference does it make"?
HERE ARE A FEW THINGS THAT WERE LEARNED DURING THE HEARING (YOU BET THIS IS WORSE THAN WATERGATE):
I must include here a big salute to Youtube and the best blog on the Internet: Doug Ross @ Journal:
I did not intend to do a post about Israel, radical Islam, and Pamela Geller this week until I read the below link by Jeff Dunetz about Pamela Geller and the protest she has received from JVP, (The Jewish Voice for Peace), a anti-Israeli group made of Jewish people. Do read his post: "The Lid": The Real Truth About Pamela Geller:
I had the pleasure of interviewing Pamela Geller on my radio show two years ago. I had invited her on to talk about Radical Islam, and her book "Stop the Islamization of America". What was to be about a ten minute interview lasted 25 minutes. I found her to be gracious giving me that extra time, and a joy to speak with. I also believe there is no other person in America on this issue that is as more important to this country in being a modern day era of a Paul Revere, or in this case, a Paula Revere.
I have always been amazed by my own Jewish friends who have blinders on and do not see what was once warnings, and are now real time advances in this country by radical Islam and The Muslim Brotherhood, and all while it mainly goes under the radar by our own media empathizers and appeasers.
While Democrats accuse Republicans of a war on women over contraception (falsely), this country and the entire world ignore the real war on women: The treatment of women by Islam. Day after day, story after story of young girls being shot or doused with acid for wanting an education. Stoned for being raped as if they were at fault, honor killings, and the latest of how in Islam it is legal to rape non-Sunni women. Oh, and let's not forget that Obama, our President said "We must respect it" in referring to Islam.
However, what about in our own country? Pamela Geller has sounded the whistle over and over again about this country being taken over from within. From the Muslim Brotherhood declaring all Muslims to enter local politics in all states (mainly NY state when I learned of this), right up to Anjem Choudary, a British Muslim Cleric saying on a ABC news program " The flag of Islam will fly over the White House." Mosques being built in America at alarming rates, as well as in Europe. The largest Mosque ever to be built in Europe was just approved to be built in Ireland, which has few Muslims, but is the fastest growing religion there. England having Sharia law in parts of their country, while radical Islam says it will be all Sharia in less than two decades. Belgium, France, Spain, it is the Crusades all over again.
Each day we hear about Pamela Geller's warnings becoming facts of current history. The response? Nothing. Including our own Jewish communities, much remaining silent. I am reminded of the old famous quote:
When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist..
When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionists.
When they came for the Jews,
I didn't speak up,
because I wasn't a Jew.
When they came for me,
there was no-one left
to speak out.
Also I am reminded of Ronald Reagan's quote " Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. "
Pamela Geller does not spew hate. Although it may appear as hate to those who are threatened by her revealing truth thus risking a wrench being thrown in to Islams new Crusade. In the Crusades of history, ( http://www.middle-ages.org.uk/the-crusades.htm ) the Muslim's attempted the taking over of real estate by the sword. The Koran (Quran, Qur'an) tells them Islam must rule the world. They failed each time, but a new Crusade is being fought, much of it is silent. No longer is the sword needed. The sword has been replaced by immigration, and entering local politics. Pamela Geller simply is a person trying to pull out the Ostriches head from the sand and showing us all what is happening under our own noses. She is to be respected Mr. President, Not Islam. She is a Hero. Is she saying events that are not true, but just simply being Islamaphobic? Hardly. Each story, each event she speaks of, reports on, all are facts that are in the news other than the ignorant main stream media. News from the Muslim world as reported by Muslims, or events right here in America that go unreported due to perhaps fear? She is not Chicken Little screaming "The sky is falling" when it is not. She is pointing to the sky and saying "Look! It IS falling", and it is.
Yes, Pamela Geller is one of the most important people in America. It is a shame that half this country is too blind, mis-informed, ignorant to see it, and why wouldn't they be? They have no real news telling them the facts. God Bless Pamela Geller.

The Ridiculous Sequester
Ahhhhh, it has been weeks since the automatic spending cuts known as the Sequester has started. The President, and all in his administration were, and are in full scare tactics strategy. I thought I would write this weeks blog to show truth, facts, and waste, plus a little history of how this all came to be. To put it all into a perspective that anyone with a brain would see how ridiculous this all is.
Just a very short history. In 2011 the debt ceiling needed approval to be raised by Congress (or denied raising it). The Republicans threatened not to raise the debt ceiling unless it was combined with addressing the deficit of 16 trillion dollars. To get the Republicans on-board to raise the debt ceiling, Obama put together an idea of what he called a "Super Committee" Made up of 12 members Democrats and Republicans. They were given the mission to come up with find a way to cut 1.5 Trillion dollars in debt savings over a ten year period. If they failed? As much as 85 Billion dollars would be cut automatically from military, and non military spending. Well, they failed to come up with any cuts, so? SEQUESTER STRIKES! History lesson over.
Just before the Sequester hit, and still to this day, Democrats are using scare tactics, and Obama did as well. Obama said "Janitors at the White House who rely on overtime to make ends meet will suffer". A day later it was learned White House Janitors were exempt from the Sequester. He went on to say that this was all the Republican's idea. Then video, and memos proved it started from the White House. At ICE, the department that detains criminal illegal aliens pending deportation, let go 2,000 into the streets claiming it was because of the Sequester. Your children made unsafe for a scare tactic of the Sequester. The administration said they were low risk, but later it was found out, again by memos, they were NOT low risk.
However, my favorite scare tactic is the White House tours closing due to the Sequester. That is what I want to focus on, to show how ridiculous this all is.
It cost seventy thousand dollars a week to have tours at the White House for little Michael, and little Gracie on school trips, or tourists in general. It is a shame we can't find ways to pay for this. Oh wait, we can! Although this simple logic in economics just goes wasted on this administration.
During the week of March 20th Obama's administration gave the Palestinians 500 million dollars! Ironically as we borrow money from China every 3 months, we give it away too? I digress: The Palestinians hate Obama and the USA. They burn our flag, and want us dead. Well, I say they get nothing! However, if we are to give them money, how about just 495 million? PRESTO! 5 million dollars to keep the White House tours open! But that is just to simple. Allow me to continue then...
While the White House tours are a victim of the Sequester, food stamps to people not even in our country continue. Yes, you heard me right. Food stamps, your tax dollars, going to people not in the USA! To those in Mexico, as well as illegal aliens, which we now have to call them Displaced immigrants get them too. Above little Michael and Gracie's White House tours. Seems any Sequestration should hit first those that are non-citizen programs.
Or how about funding education in Pakistan for their citizens at your tax dollars expense. All the while we now have cut tuition assistance for our own USA troops, again, due to the Sequestration. Seems to be very simple logic to cut education in Pakistan, and restore it to our troops, and ... you guessed it, the White House tours.
Let's try something even simpler. Last week this administration approved 2.7 million dollars for a study on ... ready for this? Why Lesbians are prone to drinking too much alcohol. Just one week before that? another study was approved for 1.2 million dollars to why Lesbians are prone to be more overweight than the national average. I would think this would upset Lesbians (perhaps not, but seems not so nice of a study to do). Just a note here...a famous waste of a study was approved to give 682 thousand dollars for the famous "Shrimp on a treadmill" which went viral on YouTube. There was even a study about government studies! All at your tax dollar expense. Going back to the Super Committee for a moment, you mean to tell me they couldn't find wasted programs to cut? I could go on with these: The turtle tunnel under a highway, jello wrestling in the antarctic.
But let's stick to the most recent. Our wonderful VP Uncle Joe Biden. The human gaffe machine. I must admit, I love the guy, he supplies me with so much to talk about! Dan Quayle was labeled stupid because he spelled Potato with an e on the end of it. Yet, Joe Biden says stupid things almost weekly. Well, what did he do this time? It wasn't anything he said, it was something he did. During a mid-February trip in Paris, Uncle Joe spent $585,000.50 for a one night stay at a Paris hotel. Sorry little Michael and Gracie, No tours at the White House for you! Uncle Joe is on the move!
Just in 2011 the Obama's vacations cost the tax payers 1.4 billion dollars. That was just for one year! I wonder how much it will be in 2013 ? Perhaps he can stay home and do some work for a change instead of playing more rounds of golf than any other president in history could pay for the tours?
... and to give Egypt 20 fighter jets, 200 tanks, 200 million dollars, with a pledge from Obama for another billion dollars!? To radical Muslim Brotherhood Morsi? Something is wrong here. All of this all comes from your hard work, your money. and yet we can't even take care of our own poor, seniors, and vets?
So, don't let all this scare tactics fool you. Just understand this: Politicians are not geniuses. Most aren't even smart. Instead of solving problems like a smart politician would, a not so smart politician spends. Unemployment? Economy? no matter the topic you get blabbing with no solutions, but mention spending cuts? and they are upset at the concept. As Nancy Pelosi said two weeks ago on Sunday morning with Chris Wallace "We don't have a spending problem". DENIAL!
Oh, and by the way, the Sequester? truth is, it isn't even truly a cut. It is for the spending of the 2013 budget which we will take in more than last year, and it just happens to be 85 billion less of the 3 plus trillion we will get. It is all a scam to scare you, to make you believe we can't cut anything, we must spend, spend, and when we are done, spend even more.

Posted by Martin O'Sullivan
A few weeks back I played a fantastic audio from Doctor Benjemin Carson (Video available on youtube) of his epic speech at the Christian Prayer Breakfast attended by President Obama not more than 5 feet away. The good Doctor spoke about how evil Political Correctness is. How it blunts efforts for us to talk honestly to each other to criticize evil. It truly was a great speech.
It got me thinking what the Doctor said was more profound than I first thought upon hearing it. Political Correctness, specially in the past 4 years by this administration has caused the rise of unstable nations, radicalism, and dangers that if not stopped will bring to fruition the knocking the King of the hill, off the hill... Civilized Societies.
Let me explain this theory of mine, which I believe is not so much a theory, as what is really happening in fact:
Since Obama's apology tour 4 years ago, his appeasement to Islam, his name changing events such as “War on Terror” now called something else. We are no longer allowed to say illegal Immigrants, or illegal aliens, but now have to say Displaced immigrants. Etc.
Case in point: The President, referring to Islam said “We must respect it”. Let us take a closer look of what is being reported daily. Last wee k a 14 year old girl was doused with battery acid because she said “No” to marrying a rapist. 3 days ago of this post it was reported that a 29 year old Pakistani policeman fell in love with a 19 year old local woman. Sounds romantic doesn't it? Well, he was burried up to his neck, and stoned to death, and later the woman was executed and shot to death. Why? Because he had the nerve to fall in love while on duty. Or how about the young Malala Yousufzai, the 14 year old Pakistani schoolgirl shot in the head by the Taliban. She is now miraculously recovering! But why did they shoot her? Because she had the nerve to want an education! How about the Iman in Europe that said “If a woman doesn't cover herself up, she deserves to be rapped”. Well? Guess what, he is now accused of rape himself. How about the Copts Christians in Egypt being literally crucified in trees! Their homes burned, shot to death in churches as they worship. I could write about all of this four days and weeks, and not cover the tip of the iceberg. Oh sure, you don't hear much about it from the mainstream media... Thank the Lord for technology and the Internet.
Did you know there is now a Muslim brotherhood in Congress? Also at the beginning of March the Muslim brotherhood said we finally have someone on the inside of the White House too!” The new head of the CIA, John Brennan is now a Muslim. The list goes on. The Muslim Brotherhood says they will take over Europe within 20 years, and the USA under 30. It is like another Christian Crusade, but not by the sword, it is by immigration.
How about in OBAMACARE Christian organizations must adhere to the rules against their religious conscious, as well no longer having the first amendment of the Constitution protecting them, yet did you know that in OBAMACARE Muslims don't have to get it!
However, do not let me try to insinuate this is all about Islam. No, the Political Correctness of not calling things for what they are extend to everything. Gun Control, kids being suspended for taking their finger while playing in the schoolyard and saying “Bang Bang” in a game of Cowboy and Indians or Cops and Robbers. Heck, when I was a kid we had pop air gun rifles! We are raising wimps while Islam, China, North Korea are building monstrosities of armies and weaponry. Half this country doesn't even like the USA anymore! Try hanging a flag now days. Half the towns in the US make you take it down!
Climate change... Oh really? It is now known the Ice shelf has expanded by millions of square miles! The Sun is doing odd stuff, cooling the earth. In fact we have had no global warming in 19 years! (Google it!). Yet we are about to teach our children Climate Change as part of the curriculum in schools now.
The subjects are endless. But, what does this have to do with Political Correctness? EVERYTHING! You see, without the United States speaking up for those girls in Islamic countries who want an education, or us pointing fingers at Islam about the way women rights are abolished (The TRUE war on Women!) We enable more of it to grow. No matter the subject, the topic, if the United States doesn't take a stance on Evil, even if only verbally, it is heard by the offenders as if we Condone it, or perhaps we are so weak to speak out against it.
Take a child. If you are a parent you will know what I mean lol. If a child misbehaves, you as a good parent corrects him. A child who has no rules will grow up spoiled, and many negative traits. We scold them if they hit another child, We yell at them “No, don't touch the stove! It's hot!” We don't coddle them. Those that do? Get brats! Yet we can't spank a child anymore without a lawsuit!
It is the same in the world of politics. Internationally, nationally, and locally.
We must stop this political correctness as Doctor Benjamin Carson says. He is right. Stand up for your beliefs! If you think it is wrong to kill Jews says so! Sounds obvious right? But no, I am stunned how this world is turning on the Jews. I love the Jewish people. Last month in England, a Parliament member walked out because a Jew was there. Two months ago a soccer team refused to play another team because it was made up of Jews. Did the World speak out? No, all “Civilized” countries were silent. Have we learned nothing from Hitler? Israel is peaceful. They are not action orientated. They are reaction orientated. Meaning they don't strike first, they react. Hundreds of missiles sent into Israel by Hamas, and nothing is said about it by the International community. NOTHING! But, when Israel responds? IT IS A HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION declared by the U.N.!
This administration is afraid. Afraid of doing what is right. Standing up for good, pointing out evil. Instead we are mute. And so, it grows, the world is being turned upside down, and much of it is all for it! When good doesn't speak out against evil, evil will take over. Heck, what is going on in this country? Akin to the burning of Rome! And half our population is blind to see. Nope, not going to go against their man Obama. From Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, to the mainstream Media they are more like Pravda, the old Soviet Union government owned media. It is time for good to take it's head out of the sand.
I could rant about this for another billion pages of writing. I will stop here lol. Understand, we have another 4 more years of freedom eroding, socialism growing. Speak out!

God Bless you, us, and the United States of America.
Here I sit with a back that is killing me, on a Sunday mid-morning wondering what I am about to write. Oh, I have ideas (never run out of things to talk about ... as I tend to ramble). My thoughts today lean to my radio show, and how I am very grateful to all the FM and AM stations that have been coming on board to carry my show. The numbers of these stations are growing so fast I am both amazed and flattered. However, I am most grateful to those of you who have written me, and listened. It is not important if you agree with my views, although I love it when I hear people do. I welcome those who differ in opinion as well, and isn't that what America is all about? I have enjoyed the past week of shows, topping it off with a special St. Patrick's Day show on Saturday. What a fun time it was to leave politics aside, and just talk about Ireland, St. Patrick, and play a few Irish songs. I should do that more often (When is the next holiday? LOL). I feel The Marty O Show, and other shows on YFN will grow throughout the country even more (Now we are in more states than I even knew about, I really need to try and gather a list of them all). Please go to my web site and visit the new Marty O Show Facebook page and LIKE. It is so new, no one has yet haaaaaaaa! Also take the poll and click VOTE, write me if you need or want a computer program, and I will find a free one for ya, and just feel free to write me about any topic you think I should talk about on the air. You are more than listeners to me, you are a radio family. Thank you all again. This blog will be just me blabbing, opposed to specific show reviews. Thank you all again.
I am from northern NJ, and my show airs live Sundays 12pm est. for News, Politics, Guests FREE computer software, Music appreciation segments, and more
