… At Least Now We Know [#arms shipments to Syria]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 6th,2016

.. docs uncovered by Judicial Watch [subsequently uncovered in a JW FOIA lawsuit]] have confirmed what I have long suspected …

.. [h/t — LegalInsurrection.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. the CIA , in the wake of Muammar Quaddafi ‘ s overthrow , had to find something to do with all of the weapons caches that Quaddahfi ‘ s regime had had left over . Their idea , supply and support the Syrian resisteance . This has of course been denied by the ObamaCrap Administration . But , it has always been suspected …

.. Now we know , it is exactly what they did . It explains the existence of the CIA Annex in Benghazi . Benghazi was the arms – trafficking center of the supply effort to Syria . Putting it in Syria put it out of the prying eyes of the State Department . Then the State Department had the bright idea to put a consulate in Benghazi without adequate security , given the situation …

.. then comes the attack on the consulate and the Annex [both] in Benghazi …

.. Oops ..

… Nice Going , Miz Hillary [#benghazi]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,October 3rd,2016

.. it seems that the e – mails that the Clintonoids did not destroy still paint quite a dark picture …

.. the consulate in Benghazi was not a great idea . Neither was the embassy in Tripoli . The security situation in Libya was not good , not by any means . It was unstable enough that by August of 2012 that the British withdrew their own diplomatic mission in Benghazi and nearly did in Tripoli . Well , you would think that our State Department might have taken some cues from the Brits …

.. Well , no ..

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the blog news post …

.. the e – mails reveal that Amb. Christopher Stevens was extremely worried about the situations in both Benghazi and in Tripoli . He cabled D.C. and warned the higher – ups that they had a disaster in the making on their hands if they did not do something about the situation , and fast . Well , they did not , and the rest is history …

.. which is damning in itself to Miz Hillary ‘ s reputation …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 24th,2016

.. the same – old , same – old Clintonian defense machine is not going to work in this case …

.. there is waaay to much documentation that Peter Schweizer and his team has pulled together for thE Clintonoids to even think of deflecting these attacks on Schweizer …

.. [link] to the news article ..

.. so , she is going to have to answer questions . Questions that she is not going to want to answer . And it will not be a one – off sessions of answering questions , either . Those questions will keep popping up , again and again …

… It Just Keeps Getting Worse [#Miz Hillary][#email][#SAP][#state secrets][…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 16th,2016

.. yes , it just keeps getting worse for Miz Hillary ..

.. especially when you focus on the last two hashtags , SAP & state secrets ..

.. these emails that have been released [over the last few months] act as if they are Chinese Water Torture . They keep showing up to produce the effect of a Sword of Damocles over the Miz Hillary campaign > Not that she enjoys it , that is for sure …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the news article ..

.. first the SAP . It stands for Special Access Programs . What is that ? That means secret information of the far highest order . There is virtually nothing that is higher . The ” access ” to this stuff is virtually nil . It is either code word related or numeric code related . It is that damn serious ..

.. There were 22 emails that the State Department deemed ” too hot to handle . ” These emails were not allowed to be released ..

.. then come state secrets . Secrets of state are that damn serious . It is stuff that you should guard with your life , if necessary ..

.. it is this stuff that is going to get Miz Hillary and her underlings in the most legal trouble , that is for sure …

… A Simple Form [#but so much trouble]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,February 1st,2016

.. it is called form OF 109 .

.. it is a fairly simple form , one that everyone fills out upon their departure from the State Department . Everyone it seems , except Miz Hillary …

.. and it can cause her a great deal of trouble …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news /video clip …

>. Fox News ‘ Ed Henry was in New York the other day to appear in the network ‘ s studios . However , he was also able to put Miz Hillary ‘ s feet to the fire on the form question ..

.. why is it such a problem ?? …

.. because you are in effect swearing an oath when you sign the form . If you have not filled it out , then it gets you into legal trouble . A false swearing on the form is perjury , punishable by a fine and a prison term …

.. Oops …

… It Figures [#Planned Murderhood funding]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 3rd,2015

.. no , not about US funding for Planned Murderhood . We already know about that . I am talking about more US funding for Planned Murderhood ..

.. which is worse ..

.. [h/t — WFB.com]..
.. [link] to the news article ..

.. the US State Department [while under Miz Hillary ‘ s watch] dispensed up to $100 million [or more] to Planned Murderhood International ..

.. yuck ! …

.. under Bush 41 or Dubya [or Reagan] , this would not have happened . There was put in place an executive order [the ” Mexico City ” policy] banning this kind of aid where it came to abortion or abortion – related counseling . It applied to any pro – death organization , not just Planned Murderhood …

.. so the corruption of the Clintons extends futher to Planned Murderhood …

… What an Idiot [#State Department Spokeswoman]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,June 19th,2014

.. I have seen some idiotic fools in public life , but jeez …

.. you think that the ObamaCraps would have judged someone to be competent to do the job before putting them out in public . Unfortunately , in this case , they totally whiffed on it . This ObamaCrap flunky is a total space case . She has no clue about what she is doing , or why she is doing it . She has no competence for the job …

… Bam ! Nice Shot , John Bolton …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 15th,2014

.. John Bolton was in an interview the other day on the FoxNewsChannel , and he called out the ObamaCraps and Miz Hillary on the carpet about their actions regarding Nigeria and Boko Haram …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the interview footage ..

.. Bolton nails them on the head for their excuses for not labeling Boko Haram a terrorist group much , much earlier . It may not have prevented the kidnapping of the girls in the north of Nigeria , but it sure as heck would have made the response to the event a whole lot more robust and quicker …

… My God [Venezuela] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,February 23rd,2014

.. it is more of Send in the Goons time ! ..

.. it has been , ever since Hugo Chavez and his crowd took power in an electoral ” coup ” many years ago . They continue to play out the Send in the Goons card , although there are far fewer Chavistas these days . They literally have to pay them in order to get them to show up , and their numbers are down sharply .

.. Now , it is the army that has to do the dirty work . Somehow , I do not think that they are too happy about it . They would rather have the National Policy wield the trunchions instead of plain ordinary mestizos . The higher ups cannot be entirely confident that their orders are going to be followed …

.. It would be nice if we had some strategic foresight here in America . POTUS , VPOTUS , and their crowd have no idea of what they are doing , or what they want to do . If they had any kind of strategic vision , they could end up having a ” B ” anticipating events , and thinking ahead towards what could or should be done , especially in foreign affairs ….

.. A ” B ” team would be a good idea in domestic politics , too . These idiots would not get caught so often when they get seen ” leading from behind . ” Thinking ahead and anticipiating events would help to avoid a lot of unneccessary grief …

… Cutting and Running is not the Answer ! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 2nd,2013

.. The State Department seems to think that it has accurate intel about terroristic threats about ongoing ops in the Arab World . Or , so it thinks that it does . I would tend to wonder . As a response , they have ordered the “temporary” closure of embassies and consulates throughout the Arab World . They think that that is the answer to an increased security threat ? Cutting and Running ?

.. The ObamaCrap foreign policy is a disgrace . We are the laughingstock , around the world . Our level of respect in foreign lands has never been lower . The so – called ” Russian reset ” is anything but an embarassment . It is but an excuse for our foreign policy establishment to kiss up to the Russians , while appeasing them to the n – th degree , while effectively getting nothing in return . The “Arab Spring” has been totally mismanaged . Our friends cower in fear , while our enemies advance their interests . They do so with very little , if any , fear of what we think , or what we will do . The Far East has badly destabilized , and , if we are not careful , a war could break out , one that could go nuclear very quickly .

.. We need better . We deserve better . We have to have better . The sooner , the better .

… Are You Kidding Me ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 27th,2013

Victoria Nuland , the hack who had an active hand in monkeying around with the Benghazi – related talking points , is getting a promotion ???

.. What a joke !

… She deserves an indictment , a conviction , and a loooong prison sentence . Not a new job . What a frickin ‘ joke . A hack gets promoted , while professional and career Foreign Service Officers like Greg Hicks are sent (likely , permanently) to the bench . How ridiculous is that .

[h/t — WhiteHouseDossier.com]

The  State Department spokeswoman who played a pivotal role in deleting portions of the Benghazi talking points has been tapped by President Obama for a plum new post, bagging a nomination to become assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs.

Nuland is a career foreign service officer who had held many high-level positions, including under George W. Bush. But her nomination to handle the European portfolio will likely be seen by Republicans as an example of the president flipping the bird their way.

Senate confirmation in the current environment would seem unlikely, at best.

During the process of whittling the original CIA talking points down, a reference to participation in the Benghazi attack by al Qaeda-linked elements was deleted. Nuland had expressed “serious concerns” about mentioning the terrorists. And she also asserted that including references to previous attacks against foreigners in Benghazi “could be abused by members to beat the State Department for not paying attention to Agency warnings.”

Nuland was particularly aggressive, pursuing the matter until the concerns of her superiors were satisfied.

… the ObamaCraps do not like the Hot Seat …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,October 11th,2012

ABC correspondent Jake Tapper during a prime t...

Jake Tapper

… it is getting to be abundantly obvious that the Obama Administration does not like being on the ” hot seat . ” A big part of being in political office is being accountable for one ‘ s actions . These days , that is being increasingly hard to do. Today ‘ s White House Press Briefing is a case in point …

… besides it being the first full scale Press Briefing in a couple of weeks …

… ABC ‘ s chief White House correspondent , Jake Tapper , had the floor , and he went on the attack  …

{info , Breitbart Media , Big Government}

TAPPER: Lieutenant Colonel Wood and Eric Nordstrom, the former regional security officer, have both suggested that there were efforts from the U.S. embassy in Libya to have more security, and the State Department — State Department officials wouldn’t let it happen. Why? Why didn’t the State Department listen to these men on the ground in Libya who wanted there to be more security?

CARNEY: Jake, as I said, there is no question that the result of what happened in Benghazi is not acceptable. Four Americans killed is not an acceptable situation, and that is why the president moved so quickly to ensure that an investigation was launched to bring the perpetrators to justice, the killers to justice, and a review was launched at the State Department to look at our security posture at the Bengali — I mean, not Bengali — at the Benghazi facility and elsewhere.

You know, those matters are under investigation. They are also being discussed in a public hearing on Capitol Hill today by the individuals and officials, both career and otherwise, who know the specifics of that. What I can tell you is what the president’s interest is in. He is very interested in bringing the perpetrators to justice and ensuring that we find out what happened, why it happened and taking steps to ensure that it never happens again.

TAPPER: Well, it’s been roughly a month. You have absolutely no idea why it happened? You don’t know why the State Department — (inaudible)?

CARNEY: Well, I think — I think, as we’re hearing on Capitol Hill today, we have learned a great deal as this investigation has progressed, and we have been very clear about what we have known at different stages of this process over the last several weeks and what we have yet to learn and the fact that at each stage, the investigation continues, and more facts may be developed that change our understanding of what happened. State Department officials are on Capitol Hill today being very clear about what we know now based on the several weeks of investigation that have taken place. They are also making clear that the investigation continues and that the Accountability Review Board that is looking into the issues of diplomatic security is continuing its work. You know, I’m not prepared to preview the results of an investigation that — or a review that have — that are not yet complete or to second-guess what the experts in the field are going to conclude.

Ouch !!
