REPORT: Obama administration warned about attacks, did nothing

The more details surface about the attacks on the U.S. Embassies in Egypt and Libya, the more disturbing they are. First, there are shocking reports about the Ambassador possibly being sexually assaulted before being killed. Also, reports are indicating that Obama knew about the elevated warnings and did nothing.

TheBlaze reported:

Senior diplomatic sources say the U.S. State Department had credible information, 48 hours prior to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya and the embassy in Cairo, that American locations may be targeted, however, no warnings were issued, no “lock down” orders given, The Independent reports.

On Tuesday, a mob of radical Islamists stormed the consulate in Benghazi, killing U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in a fiery assault. Officials say the murders of the four men were likely the result of “a serious and continuing security breach,” the report states.

The Independent has also reported that sensitive documents have been taken from the embassy:

American officials believe the attack was planned, but Chris Stevens had been back in the country only a short while and the details of his visit to Benghazi, where he and his staff died, were meant to be confidential.

The US administration is now facing a crisis in Libya. Sensitive documents have gone missing from the consulate in Benghazi and the supposedly secret location of the "safe house" in the city, where the staff had retreated, came under sustained mortar attack. Other such refuges across the country are no longer deemed "safe".

Some of the missing papers from the consulate are said to list names of Libyans who are working with Americans, putting them potentially at risk from extremist groups, while some of the other documents are said to relate to oil contracts.

According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and "lockdown", under which movement is severely restricted.

"If we can't see the difference between good and evil, if you can't see that a president continually lies to your face, if you can't see that a man who has not been to a briefing in two weeks, has only gone in the last year to 4‑ ‑‑ is it 38% of his briefings, that we had a warning 48 hours in advance and this president didn't put out an alert to the embassies, that the guy he assigned to Libya was flying in to Libya after the warning had come in and he didn't alert him!  That while that ambassador was being sodomized on the street and killed and our NOC list was being taken, the president didn't even have the wherewithal, the care to stay awake, to find out what was going to happen, how he could help, to brainstorm to bring somebody in with an idea on what we should be doing.  He decided to go to sleep.  Oh, my gosh.  America, character matters," Glenn said in response to the news.

Glenn said that when he was driving into work this morning in New York City, he watched the people on the street and wondered how they couldn't recognize the failure of leadership that America is currently experiencing. Is everyone just too wrapped up in their own lives to realize what is happening? Are people paying attention to what is going on in the Middle East? Will Barack Obama be re-elected because Americans were ignorant of where he really stands on the issues and what his actions have meant for the country?

"Now, I'm driving down the street. I'm thinking, how long before they go after the bottles? And I'm looking at the people and I'm wondering, how long before you people wake up? How much more? And then I saw people for being people, not just stupid New Yorkers. And I saw a woman who's walking down and she was carrying her purse and she was smoking and she was rushing to work. And I started to think, 'What is her life like? Where is she going? What does she do for a living?'"

"I saw another guy who was jogging and he had tennis shoes and black socks. He ‑‑ I mean, he looked like he came right out of 1970. And I thought, 'Who is your wife? How does she let you out of the door with black socks and shorts?' He was like 45 years old. 'Who are you listening to? Does your wife even look at you anymore? Do your kids say, hey, Dad, stop with the black socks'? I wondered what he did for a living," he continued.

"As I saw somebody just kind of meander down the street, I saw somebody else behind them. It was a guy probably about 50 years old and he was a little pudgy, he was a little out of shape like me and he was carrying two big, heavy boxes. I wondered, 'What's in the box? Where are you taking it? What do you do for a living?' I notice he had two cellphones."

"The reason why I bring this up is because I looked at those people and I thought, how much, how much time do they have to do their own homework? Most of us are fighting for our lives just to get home, just to be with the kids. That guy probably doesn't have any other socks except black ones with the shorts because he probably wears a suit every day and that's just kind of the world he lives in. He was probably going jogging because the doctor said, 'You've got to get some exercise, man.' And it's something new. He's probably fighting for his health and his wife probably doesn't care about the socks. She probably just cares about having him alive. 'I don't care what you ‑‑ I know your father looks ridiculous in the socks, but he's doing something. He's trying to get into shape.'"

"Is it that we have been so duped, that we are so in debt that we are ‑‑ we are living to work, not working to live? Let's give America the benefit of the doubt, that they're just busy, tired, and misguided in their priorities."

Glenn emphasized, however, that character matters - and in the end whatever the excuses are we cannot afford to have four more years where America heads down the wrong direction.

TRUMP: The twilight hour of socialism has arrived

The other day, at Florida International University in Miami, facing large American and Venezuelan flags, President Trump gave a rousing speech in Miami, including this line, the "twilight hour of socialism has arrived."

Trump went on to say:

Socialism is about one thing only—power for the ruling class. They want the power to decide who wins and who loses, who's up and who's down…and even who lives and who dies.

He then repeated a phrase that helped define his State of the Union address this year:

America will never be a socialist country.

Fittingly, Fox News posted an article yesterday exposing the overlooked evils of Che dangers of socialism that all too often disappear behind a flashy design on a t-shirt.

  1. Guevara said he killed people without regard to guilt or innocence. In an interview, Guevara said, "in times of excessive tension we cannot proceed weakly. At the Sierra Maestra, we executed many people by firing squad without knowing if they were fully guilty. At times, the Revolution cannot stop to conduct much investigation; it has the obligation to triumph."
  2. Humberto Fontova, author of "Exposing the Real Che Guevara," told Fox that Guevara created system that put gay people in labor camps. "The regime that Che Guevara co-founded is the only one in modern history in the Western Hemisphere to have herded gays into forced labor camps."
  3. Guevara opposed a free press: "In 1959, leftist journalist José Pardo Llada reported that Guevara told him: 'We must eliminate all newspapers; we cannot make a revolution with free press. Newspapers are instruments of the oligarchy.'"
  4. Guevara made racist statements: Guevara went on to write: "the black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving."

These are just some of the many historical examples of the failure of socialism. President Trump is right. If the frivolities of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Saunders catch on and spread, we could have an unbelievable problem on our hands.

Poor Jussie: His narrative is falling apart completely

Here's how the media works now: Find a story that confirms their narrative, run it constantly and relentlessly. When the real story comes out, minimize exposure of the correction. Repeat.

We're seeing this pattern play out over and over again.

Here are some of the knee-jerk reactions that the media had to this Jessie Smollett hoax, from Insider Edition, CNN, E! News, Headline News, CNBC, TMZ, to name a few:

And those are just the reactions on TV. It was just as bad, at times worse, in print and online. I'll give you one special example, however. Because, you know the situation is bad when TMZ is connecting the dots and seeing through this guy's story:

The sources say there were red flags from the get go. Cops were extremely suspicious when Jussie took them out to the area where he said he was attacked and pointed to an obscure camera saying how happy he was that the attack was on video. Turns out the camera was pointing in the wrong direction. Cops thought it was weird he knew the location of that camera. And there's this. We're told investigators didn't believe the 2 alleged attackers screamed 'This is MAGA country' because 'Not a single Trump supporter watches 'Empire.''

Here's the man himself, in an interview just days after the alleged beating…I'm sorry, the alleged "modern day lynching." Here he is in an interview with ABC News, complaining about people making up stuff:



Strong words, spoken by a man who, allegedly, created the whole narrative to begin with.

This compromise is an abomination

Zach Gibson/Getty Images

Three decades ago, "The Art of the Deal" made Donald Trump a household name. A lot has happened since then. But you can trace many of Trump's actions back to that book.

Art of the Deal:

In the end, you're measured not by how much you undertake but by what you finally accomplish.

People laughed when he announced that he was running for President. And I mean that literally. Remember the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner when Obama roasted Trump, viciously, mocking the very idea that Trump could ever be President. Now, he's President.

You can't con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don't deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on.

This empire-building is a mark of Trump.

The most recent example is the border wall. Yesterday, congress reached a compromise on funding for the border wall. Weeks of tense back-and-forth built up to that moment. At times, it seemed like neither side would budge. Trump stuck to his guns, the government shut down, Trump refused to budge, then, miraculously, the lights came back on again. The result was a compromise. Or at least that's how it appeared.

But really, Trump got what he wanted -- exactly what he wanted. He used the techniques he wrote about in The Art of the Deal:

My style of deal-making is quite simple and straightforward. I aim very high, and then I just keep pushing and pushing and pushing to get what I'm after.

From the start, he demanded $5.7 billion for construction of a border wall. It was a months' long tug-of-war that eventually resulted in yesterday's legislation, which would dedicate $1.4 billion. It would appear that that was what he was after all along. Moments before the vote, he did some last-minute pushing. A national emergency declaration, and suddenly the number is $8 billion.

Art of the Deal:

People think I'm a gambler. I've never gambled in my life. To me, a gambler is someone who plays slot machines. I prefer to own slot machines. It's a very good business being the house.

In a rare show of bipartisanship, Senate passed the legislation 83-16, and the House followed with 300-128. Today, Trump will sign the bill.

It's not even fair to call that a deal, really. A deal is what happens when you go to a car dealership, fully ready to buy a car, and the salesman says the right things. What Trump did is more like a car dealer selling an entire row of cars to someone who doesn't even have a licence. When Trump started, Democrats wouldn't even consider a wall, let alone pay for it.

Art of the Deal:

The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people's fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That's why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It's an innocent form of exaggeration—and a very effective form of promotion.

He started the wall on a chant, "Build the wall!" until he got what he wanted. He maneuvered like Don Draper, selling people something that they didn't even know they wanted, and convincing them that it is exactly what they've always needed.
