It's 3:00am and Obama has proved Hillary right

by Dan Andros

President Obama’s biggest weakness heading into the 2008 election was his lack of foreign policy experience. Many questioned the wisdom in electing a community organizer with a naïve foreign policy to be the leader of the free world. Even Hillary Clinton raised doubts with her infamous ‘3:00am’ commercial.

The administration’s dishonest & disorganized handling of the Benghazi attack confirms the validity of those concerns and leaves Americans with the impression that their President is inept, indifferent or both. Ironically, Hillary Clinton was the first Obama administration official who correctly identified Benghazi as a terrorist attack, although two days she later followed marching orders and blamed the anti-Islamic YouTube video.

The administration immediately sought to blame the video because it fits neatly into Obama’s worldview. He doesn’t believe terrorists are created by zealots who pervert Islam, he believes terrorists are born out of oppression from colonialist powers such as the United States. That’s why ‘radical Islam’ has been removed from counter terrorism training manuals. That’s why his first reaction when terrorists killed 2 U.S. soldiers over a Quran burning incident was to sympathize with the killers for burning the Quran, not condemn them.

Obama’s foreign policy was ill-fated from the moment it set sail. Many knew it, and now we’re tragically witnessing the proof.

The latest updates on the Benghazi attacks are devastating to the Obama administration. If there is a shred of journalistic integrity left in the media, the Benghazi debacle will bring Obama’s presidency to an end.

UPDATE #1: Benghazi was bombed twice in the run-up to 9/11 anniversary

This puts quite a severe hole in the administration’s claim (made by Jay Carney) that:

“We were not aware of any actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi was planned or imminent. That report is false.”

In the report from the Daily Beast a senior State Department official acknowledged there were five serious attacks on Western targets since the spring in the lead up to the 9/11 anniversary.

“Security deteriorated significantly in June. On June 10, a man fired a rocket-propelled grenade in broad daylight into a convoy carrying the British ambassador to Libya. Later that month, the Red Cross was attacked again. By the end of June, the British Consulate and the Red Cross closed their facilities in Benghazi.”

In all there were at least 13 incidents leading up to the attack – including specific threats made against Ambassador Stevens with Jihadists posting his regular jogging route seemingly to encourage an attack.

Also note: the attacks and warnings were occurring long prior to July, the month the YouTube video cited by Obama was uploaded to the internet. So – what were they angry about? Something on Twitter? MySpace?

UPDATE #2: House Oversight says requests for increased security in Benghazi before 9/11 denied by Washington

Why would those requests be denied? That is a really good question. Jake Tapper asked Jay Carney, here’s the response: “I’m not going to get into a situation under review by the State Department and the FBI”

UPDATE #3: Benghazi suspect freed from Egyptian prison after Mubarak fall

 

As the President cheered on the Arab Spring and praised all those young folk setting themselves on fire, he ignored the obvious danger signs. Like the hundreds of radical jihadists being released from prison. At least one of those freed prisoners then goes and helps murder Ambassador Stevens.

Each new update is another harsh indictment on Obama. Here’s the story being told by the facts:

>The administration had prior knowledge of increased violence in Benghazi

>The administration knew of specific threats against the Ambassador

>The administration denied multiple requests from Benghazi for increased security, leaving them vulnerable to attack

>The administration knowingly misled Americans on the cause of the Benghazi attack in order to conceal the fact that America had just suffered a terrorist attack under his watch – on the anniversary of 9/11.

>Attacks and threats on Benghazi were happening even before the video Obama blamed was posted on the internet, meaning he lied to the American people in order to save his own arse.

Also worth noting: the administration is not bending over backwards to investigate prior to Nov 6th. The mother of Tyrone Woods (one of the SEALS killed in the attack) has spoken out against the administration for the slow pace of the investigation.

The story being fed to the media is that they aren’t sending agents in due to security fears. So they ignored multiple requests before the attack but now that agents are about to investigate and uncover possibly damaging information to Obama they won’t allow anyone in the area? The sudden concern doesn’t seem all that sincere.

President Obama has confirmed many, including Hillary Clinton’s worst fears: he has no clue what he’s doing in regards to foreign policy. He’s in over his head and flailing about at a time when the world needs decisive leadership. But what else should we expect from a President who thinks giving the OBL raid a green light is a ‘gutsy call’? That was a no brainer – and he needed a night to sleep on the decision.

It’s 3:00am and Barack Obama has proved Hillary Clinton right – well, sort of. We don’t want her on the other end of the line either.

 

 

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
