MSNBC mocks ‘wild’ theories on Petraeus


				
Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

MSNBC, the network who ranted and raved about Scooter Libby all day long. The network that claimed Bush lied and people died. The network that mentioned Halliburton many, many times for some reason or another. They have decided that there’s no foul play at all going on with the Petraeus scandal. It’s all on the up and up.

The below was posted on MSNBC.com:

Here’s a roundup of four Petraeus resignation conspiracy theories. Be warned: Many are downright silly.

1. He is trying to get out of testifying about Benghazi
Conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham suggested Petraeus’ resignation is to get out of testifying about Benghazi. “COINCIDENCE?!” Ingraham tweeted. “Petraeus is set to testify NEXT week at a closed door session on Capitol Hill ab[ou]t Benghazi. Did [Obama] push him out? This stinks!”

2.  Obama totally knew about the affair before the election, and lied about it
Conservative website Breitbart.com’s Ben Shapiro is convinced the Petraeus affairdemonstrates the Obama administration “hid information vital to the American people” during the last days of the election.

The National Review’s Charles C.W. Cooke repeated the claim, saying “Politics is politics, but if this Petraeus stuff wasn’t known prior to the election, I”ll eat my shoes.”

3. Someone was trying to destroy Petraeus’ career

Wired’s Noah Shachtman tweeted, “I hate to say I told you so but…” On Nov. 1, Shachtman  took to Twitter to say “Wow. Someone is trying to end Dave Petraeus’ career” and linked to aWall Street Journal piece called “CIA Takes Heat for Role in Libya.” The story pointed out that Petraeus was missing from the ceremony honoring the four Americans killed in Benghazi.

4. He was being blackmailed.
Michael D. Shear of The New York Times notes that “Intelligence agencies are often concerned about the possibility that agents who engage in behavior [like having an affair] could be blackmailed for information.”  Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren says “Why did he go public? Blackmail? The woman still ‘friendly’ or did she turn on him?”

“Wacky Star Trek theories of theirs,” Pat joked.

Seriously, do any of those look too extreme to be considered the “wildest conspiracy theories” when it comes to the scandal?

Did President Obama know? “Of course, he knew about this,” Stu said.

“Those are your two choices. There is no inbetween. He is not the president of the United States. If no one is telling him until they make the decisions, if he’s really this uninformed, then he’s not the President of the United States. You have to ask the question who is the President of the United States? Who is running the show? And if he did know, then he’s lying to you and covering for something else because he’s telling you he didn’t know, which one,” Glenn said.

Stu pointed out there was only one week when Petraeus could resign and have it not affect the election and take place a time where he would not have to testify on Benghazi. “Shockingly he was fired during that week! When the election had already happened and all votes were cast and before he could testify.”

Glenn said, “He was also fired on the only day and any stupid people would say the president was busy. It was election day. And while all the press was busy on something else. So it lessened it and then you didn’t hear about it until what day? The day every news dumped. It was dumped on a Friday. It was dumped on a Friday. Isn’t that interesting? What a coincidence.”

    MSNBC is the propaganda media for the administration and the Leftists of the Democrats; why should anyone believe, trust or even watch that band of lunatics?

    I am one among many who support Glenn.  However, the issue of 5 million more young (under 30) voting for the incumbent is very troubling and will only get worse.  The intentional attack on white males as the backbone of our society is especially disconcerting.  Evengelicals voted overwhelmingly 79-21 for the good guy.  As a Catholic, I note that we voted 50-48 for the incumbent.  This is very scandalizing in light of the American rebellion against the Vatican stance on morality and doctrine and the lack of support by the clergy, dissident nuns, and radical laity.

    MSNBC: Malignant Simpering Ninnies Bellowing Compost. At least, that was the original meaning of the acronym, and it doesn’t seem to have changed much. They just wish they had a “T” in there so they could get in the word “Tingle” – or was is “Tinkle?”

    Anyway, it’s like The Bubonic Plague and The Holocaust had a baby.

    Oh, the webs they weave.. they can’t even get their stories the same! I don’t believe a word of mainstream media!! Liars!

    This is the problem with the media. Even though they lie, are biased 100% towards leftists and have fewer people listening to them, they still get the word out and people believe them. Throw in the rest like CNN and all the main channels on TV and you get most people being reached with their news. People don’t care to take the time to THINK about what they hear, they just take things for granted.  Include in that the bribed election machine that was the democrats and it’s easy to see why Obama won with such a majority. Romney was too much of a gentleman during the debates to make a dent in the Obama hype.

  • Sandie

    It just goes to show – Obama is either out of touch and incompetent, or he is a total liar with a hidden agenda (hidden because he knows it won’t fly with most of the public). Either one makes him unfit for the office he holds!

    MSNBC get’s it’s days talking points directly from the White House every morning through a conference call. If they are coming up with this crap then the White House is behind it.

  • Anonymous

     No one can be this out of touch – no matter how many rounds you play. My money is on the “hidden agenda” – an agenda by the way, that’s revealing itself more and more by the day. Watching the daily DC show unfold, is worse than sitting through a bad soap-opera (they’re all bad in my opinion) and I have never been able to stomach those.

    Yeah Matthews  has his own red-cell-phone w/a line linked directly to the White House, says it gives him a thrill up his leg every time it vibrates..in hope that it might be  the boss again.

    I’m not kidding. The leftists have a morning briefing with the White House. Media Matters, Think Progress, Move On, MSNBC and many others. They are given their marching orders and talking points. What to say and what to make fun of so people don’t have time to think for themselves.

    I’m serious. I was in on one of their briefing sessions some time ago when I was at Think Progress.

  • Anonymous

    Aaaa I was just kidding with you…I heard about that more than a month ago or better who knows, but yeah, talk about Orwellian – Mad Max here we come.

    By the way, what were some of the briefings based on, what was a normal proceeding.

    Obama’s way to spread the lies, but then the truth comes out on Fox and the libs go nuts. They hate that! LMAO

  • SoThere

    They consisted of an open discussion by computer simulcast, where people took notes and discussed what should be said and what not to say. have you noticed that the Media all use the same catch phrases every day? That’s scripted directly from the White House. It’s posted at places like the Anternuts, Think Progress, Huffy post, Move On and Media Matters where the rest of the Liberal Progressives pick it up and run with it. Media Matters especially promotes the daily talking points to the point that they pay followers to go to other sites like Glenn Beck, Red State, Fox, and other Conservative sites to spam their message of the day.

    I know you have experienced these people, they usually show up out of the blue with fake Yahoo accounts when something big is happening like Benghazi or Fast and Furious. They post 20 quick posts on a site and then move to another site and do it again.

    They are the brainwashed leftists, spewing the propaganda and hate of the Obama White House.

    The term Faux News originated from the White House.

    All the better for Obama, I mean these political hacks have perfected their craft and by now, they know all the right buttons to push and when. Keep discreet information from the public long enough, let only fractions leak, and then within a few days or week – there will be so many different stories floating about, there is no way the real truth can ever be known. They use our natural curiosity against us. Then stand off in the distance and safety of Americas White House, they chuckle while patting themselves on the back for another job well-done. Welcome to the new America.

    Julius Ceasar’s dream – Rome would still rule the world with such a political connection. This thing is going to end badly – and not just because of the disappointment of having a Liar in Chief, but when the people finally catch on what he is doing, say like Ohio for instance, that this administration toys with its subjects and when done, throws you away like so much trash. I suppose that’s the difference from a Kenyan Official and an American. In my opinion the lead will soon be flying, trouble is, the advanced tech. of Americas Military cannot be beaten…not by civilians using shotguns – conventional weapons etc…things could get real ugly and very soon.

    I don’t know any soldier who would fire on his own family under orders of the President or Generals.

    The Military don’t like Obama that’s why Obama refused to let their ballots be counted in the swing states.

    Its hard to fathom I’m certain. Think back though to the Civil-War – Son against Father, Brother against Brother, neighbor against neighbor. I think we are more divide today, than what we were then. Much of what separates us, stems from the heavy use of the net – then as you point out, mixed information from high places and look what happens.

    Now add hunger and starvation in the mix…from a collapsed economic system – not only that – the worlds economic system, then it doesn’t really matter who sits in power – now its every man for himself.

    I agree that the majority of military is on the peoples side. But remember when Obama talked about a civilian army, think about how many of the brothas from Americas inner city, Hezbollah, Muslim hood, Al-Qaeda even Mexican Cartel…these agents are already at play and waiting in the shadows of this land. It is speculated that Obama has 10,000 storehouses scattered across this nation. Reports circulate that the White House has ordered hallow point rounds (illegal Geneva conference – to be used in combat) “but maybe not civil war”. Rumor has it, that there are enough rounds to shoot every American citizen five times.

    It’ll never go that far. Look at the downfall of the USSR. A couple shots into the Russian Polit Bureau and it was over.

    It’s an effort to muddy the waters with the volume of “fire” and create confusion in the ranks of the people and throw off the investigators and the press. They are very good at this diversion tactic. With a little determination on our part it will not work.

    I’ve sat here for the past few minutes thinking about the differences this nation faces today, from what our nation struggled through in our Revolution, then, sadly, a bloody civil war with ourselves. America has always been the symbol of hope throughout the world, that is, until recently and for that reason I was prompted to respond one last time before I shut it down.

    Never before in the history of the world, has this nation had so many enemies. I can’t think of one nation today…especially after the Obama apology tour, then, how he conveniently through our closest allies to the wolves, that America has a true friend. Whats even more difficult to except, is our nation is evenly divided within two vastly different political ideologies.

    As I stated before – I hope you are right in your assumption. The trouble I have, is a gnawing sensation at the core of my being, which is, if our people decide to fire live rounds at one another and shed our brothers blood, who are we to know what those nations mentioned above, will do to finish us off.

    I went online days before the election and saw first hand that most nations were hoping for an Obama victory. That said, many of those nations hate us – no matter who sits in the White House. Therefore, it is these nations, we would suffer an ambush or double-cross – the thinking being, attack them when they are at their weakest and thus, finish them off.

    That scenario, is something I feel, not to many Americans have thought about.

  • Sandie

    I don’t doubt it. I have heard it used during press briefings and thought it was pretty low that they would do that. Gibbs was a good one for it – heck they tried to ban Fox from the briefings claiming they weren’t really a news station… Obama’s attempt to control the press – no surprise.

  • Anonymous

    Oh, I get it now…the President wasn’t told about Benghazi because they couldn’t find him.  When they did, they couldn’t reveal where he was…..under the desk with Petraeous and Broadwall.  Oh, so thats why their lying….

    If there’s going to be a battle in the US it’s going to be a racial one. A simple fact that goes un-noticed is that you don’t have to be white to be a racist. Remember the “Watts Riots”?

    Liberals keep pushing abortion on the blacks and the poor because revolutions are usually started by poor people. It’s a fine line they are walking, they need enough poor blacks to stay in power but too many poor people wanting more stuff are dangerous to their existence. It’s a Progressives nightmare that keeps them awake at night. Have you ever met a liberal who was happy? It’s a Margaret Sanger thing that got abortion rolling for the purpose of culling blacks from the population. It was carried forward by the Liberal Progressives.

    The battle isn’t going to be against the Military, it’s coming from the New Black Panthers, Louis Farrakhan and the OWS Anarchists.

  • Sandie

    So we get side tracked by the affair and forget Benghazi

  • Anonymous

    I agree with your take, that civil unrest will start in the ghetto, who’s members are primarily black….. NEWS BREAK……JUST HEARD THAT Elmo was cleared of all charges…(the sound of angels singing from heaven)…now…..where was I….man I need sleep that’s all I can say….

    As far as ever meeting a happy liberal – yes I have…that is, if them being stoned out of their mind means their happy.

    Seriously though, that is frankly something that the black community has to step up and face. Most continue to vote Democratic, but the liberals want to thin out their numbers using abortion, yet they vote for a Dem. every time…sad.

    Absolutely – I’m in total agreement that the Panthers and those persuaded by the likes of Farrakhan and others will be the genesis for civil unrest. One must consider though – just how many blacks are registered in the armed service. Whatever happens – it aint gonna be a cake walk in any stretch.

  • BentGhazi

    Personally, it’s obvious that some crap went down in the situation room that can hurt Barack, Petraeus knows it, and they are doing their damnedest to destroy the general as a witness. It’s textbook blackmail by lawyer stuff. This administration thinks if they can put a black mark on enough people in that room they can short circuit their testimony and the damage to the President for issuing the Stand Down order.

    I think with the new allegations against other theater commander from Afghanistan, they believe they can simply blame it all on the generals and no one will care what Barack did.

    They must all be stupid.

  • BentGhazi

    Obama got his lies from teleprompters, Gibbs probably was the one who made them up. Not one of the people in this administration has the personal integrity of Pinocchio. The lies just keep on coming and they have put out so many of them that it is inevitable that they will be caught. They are an exceedingly stupid pack of liars.

  • Sandie

    It’s about not losing focus – watch the Disqus sites like Alt, MMoA, they will go along with it. We have been giving them a long enough vacation. They are probably thinking we are avoiding them so we don’t get laughed at. We need to let them know about all the 100% Obama votes, the 140% of registered voters voting Obama, etc. after all they were the ones bitching about how we wanted Voter ID and they whined about how the Republicans were going top cheat.

He brushes of questions about “what does the president think (or say) about such and such” as if he doesn’t know or Obama has said nothing – he is his spokesperson and is in on all the meeting!

    I have not respect for General Powell, but I do have respect for General Franks and Swarzkof.  If it wasn’t for those two Generals we would have lost Desert Storm.  It was their plans that won that war.

  • Anonymous

    General Colin Powell is a perfect example of what happens during peace time.  The political Generals rise to the top while the war fighting Generals don’t until their is a war.  We then have to get rid of the political Generals and Admirals until we find one that knows how to plan to fight a war.  History has proven that.  Civil War is a good example of this.  How many Generals did Lincoln go through until he found one that knew how to fight?

    I don’t care about them laughing at me and never did. The laughter of idiots is no concern to me. It’s fairly apparent there was a lot of cheating going on – that vote count from the vendor in Spain should be audited, and every absentee ballot counted from our military overseas should be included. We’ve got to stop taking shortcuts with these people perverting the system as they have proven they are capable of. They were crying about Republicans to divert attention from their own active programs to cheat America.

    It’s time to go on the offensive – the worst they can do is live up to their reputation and ban people for speaking the ugly truth that they will lie, cheat, steal, and if you are POTUS even kill those who stand up for what it right, honest, and fair.

    Talk about being “damned to believe a lie”. The American citizenry in general is lazy and will bring about their own destruction.

Of course Obama and company knew everything.

     HIspanics who are almost all Catholics, voted 71% for Obama partly because Obama gave a mass amnesty to young illegal aliens, and Hispanics are more liberal than whites. What is shameful is that millions of conservatives stayed home on election day because their boy, Ron Paul, was not the GOP candidate. They are a bunch of whinny losers.

    I love The Glenn Beck Show and use the Blaze as my source of what research I need to pursue.  If you all stopped reporting on what MSNBC was talking about you would reduce their audience down to Rachel Maddow’s and Chris Matthew’s moms.  How about it?

    I left the Catholic Church in the early 70′s because of the direction of “Social Justice” they were rabidly pursuing.  Every week the priest was extolling the virtue of big gov’t solving the “injustices’ in the world.  Only when the Scorpian actually stung them did they think it was a bad idea to give it a ride.  For 40 years Catholics have been trained by their clergy to be Liberal Democrat Big Gov’t.  Did the Holy See REALLY think that could be turned around in one election?  BTW, my priest, who was an immigrant and very conservative mysteriously disappeared from the pulpit about 2 weeks before the election and was replaced with a party line guy who is preaching big gov’t solutions.  Just because the head Bishop changed his mind, doesn’t mean the rest of the bishops did so in their hearts.

    Americans are not vassals of the Vatican, so they cannot “rebel” against the “Vatican stance”. Also, please tell the Pope to stop banning contraception by misleading people about scripture, which causes millions of abortions.

    (The catholic church twists the passage about spilling of seed, where God was angry with a man because he was tasked with having sex with a wife to impregnate her but “spilled his seed” to avoid impregnating her which was his duty because his brother was infertile). They use that to justify denying contraceptives which would prevent diseases and unwanted pregnancies (and thus prevent the abortions that follow). So the deaths of millions of babies are on the Vatican’s head. Not to mention the rapes of thousands of boys because the Roman Catholic Church refuses to allow Priests to marry because it wants to continue the Roman pagan tradition (like how Nuns are modern day Vestal Virgins and their outfit is the same one used by Vestal Virgins according to the Catholic Encyclopedia itself).

  • http://twitter.com/paoligarcy Paolina

    I’m of the same thought as you.

    The Catholic Church also seems to pump out Atheists (the most atheist countries in Europe were majority catholic, now majority atheist). Almost every Atheist I know is a former Catholic, probably because the rituals and “patron saint” system. Most Protestants don’t realize that the Catholic Church kept the Roman Pantheon, and changed it to a “Christian” pantheon.

    It’s like how there was the Roman Patron Goddess Juno, Goddess of Fertility, now there is St. Gerard, Patron Saint of Fertility. The parallels are just shocking.

    CATHOLIC Hispanics are more liberal than whites, but PROTESTANT hispanics voted over 80% for John McCain, more than whites or any other demographic group!

    Preach to our community the true biblical values and Hispanics will then VOTE for those values!

    It’s about RELIGION, not race! Catholicism promotes liberalism and atheism (due to disenchantment with a religion focused on pagan traditions like the College of Priests which is now the College of Cardinals, and the patron saint system which is the patron god system remade)
