The Benghazi lies/scandal should alone be enough to initiate significant pressure on Congress to deal with Obama via their constitutional process of impeachment. The IRS scandal, however, should seal the deal. Especially if the following is true.

Trey Hardin: “I will tell you this on the IRS front. I’ve worked in this town for over 20 years in the White House and on Capitol Hill and I can say with a very strong sense of certainty that there are people very close to this president that not only knew what the IRS were doing but authorized it. It simply just does not happen at an agency level like that without political advisers likely in the West Wing certainly connected to the president’s ongoing campaign organization.”

Hardin didn’t say it was the President specifically, but if this is the office of the President directly involved in the IRS political enemy scandal then we have serious problems that need serious punishment.


VIDEO: Interview audio below.

  • Yulia Haverty

    I think our president and Sec.of State severely let our country down, betrayed our armed-forces, and outright lied many times, just to win re-election. Sorry, to my liberal friends, but this is very unacceptable. Combined with using the IRS against conservative groups, and attempting to silence the A.P. with intimidation, it is highly doubtful this president deserves to be our president.

    • Jan Marra

      Oh, go chew your arm off. You LOST because you deserved to LOSE. You’ll LOSE again in 2014, again in 2016 (can you say, Madame President, little suckbags?), and again in 2020.

      America has HAD it with your ignorance, you rank stinking stupidity, and your bigotry. You’re an obsolete number, Yulia. You fucked the wrong party boys, and now they’re going down and taking you with them.

      • Ed Kellogg II

        Mean and nasty much?

      • Kimberly Sherman Gamba

        Your nasty piece of work aren’t you Jan. So you must be a liberal, that explains the tolerance and peace loving manner in which you explain your position. Nice.

        • Rick Jason

          Jan is the classic example of a Liberal: All mouth (which usually has been places that only a dog could appreciate) and no brains (common sense). That’s why we have an illegal alien currently destroying our country and its Constitution, is because idiots like her allowed a traitor to hijack our Wh.

          • justathought22

            Thank you, very well said.

          • George Williams

            Please don’t insult my dog.

      • Michelle Yeack Brantley Johnso

        Piss off potty mouth

    • Michelle Yeack Brantley Johnso

      I am with you Yulia. Jan Marra can piss off:) She only likes o call people names

      • justathought22

        That is the typical liberal mantra. When faced with actual facts destroying their position they lash out and attack you personally; your racist, or fat, or ugly, or stupid, or a bigot or or or or. Anything that they think will hurt your personally because they are childish. When obama was elected I took pride in the fact that they changed the definition of “racist to mean someone who believes in the Constitution, small government, and responsibility for your actions”. Just thing about it.

        • Justin Lapp

          Yes.. Thank you sir.

        • Jim Speed

          They do NOT care about facts.. they get in the way of emotion. Every single time I have TROUNCED a liberal with indisputable facts (often govt stats) they end up, like you say calling names or just flat out cursing me.

          Whenever I have been proven wrong, it doesnt happen often because I check my facts a lot and try to be ACCURATE.. I acquiesce the fact I was wrong. These people do not have the CAPACITY to do this.. The F bomb is their favorite reply in that very situation. WE are the ones being honorable.. they are low information Ignoramuses we are trying to EDUCATE.

    • ericjodom

      Jan’s comment has been deleted. We can disagree here, but please don’t use the comment thread to lash out on a personal level and stoop to dropping f-bombs to ensure attention.

    • Cheryl Casey Ross

      He does not deserve to be in our WH he needs to be impeached now. The IRS is just the last straw after Benghazi, Fast and Furious, jumping in on local news events until all the facts are in to say who is guilty, the professor and Troyvon…come on act like a president and quit being an attention whore. BHO is classless, always has been and putting him in a suit doesn’t change who he is under there, cheap, liar, no class, sneaky, hiding school records, printing a false birth certificate out of the White House, saying he took down OBL, but his stand down order is the worst of his offenses and to lie and say it was a video not just once but enough that he was looking more stupid each time he said it and sent his underlings out to do his dirty work for him. Shameful.

      • gc58

        He deserves to be investigated to the fullest extent of the law in a bipartisan manner. Those investigating cannot accept finger pointing or ignorance of the law as excuses.

    • Frank Brattina

      It took you this long to come to that decision and then apologize to the Libs .Doubtful the the foriegn exchange student deserves to be president ???? YOU are the problem

    • Annette Sheaffer

      I agree, but strangely no one is bothering to answer also why some counties and cities had more votes then voters etc. I still don’t believe the voting wasn’t rigged both times he ran for election. No one bothered to investigate or do anything about the black panthers, his dishonest practices and dirty politics go so far, but the press didn’t follow through, now that it involved them they suddenly want to start pointing out his faults now, we knew it all along.

      • Tim M

        Annette.. they DID investigate and do something about the Black Panthers. They were convicted, but Holder decided not to execute the sentence. He just let them go.

        • Kingcruiser

          Actually, they were not convicted. Holder told them not to do it again and in exchange for a promise not to bring weapons (night sticks) again (well, duh) to the next election (this past one), he would drop the charges. Free and clear when kids are being expelled from school for playing cops and robbers with pretend finger “guns”.

    • justathought22

      All done intentially.

    • madhatter46

      He said he was going to transform America, shame on us for not believing him. Actually, I believe his “Let them eat cake” administration has woken up a sleeping giant. Finally, like Pearl Harbor, we the people, are staring to understand the perils of dystopian ideology!

      • Just Another Guy

        We are a country of “live and let live” amongst ourselves, with broad boundaries.
        BUT when you cross a certain boundaries, the fan is turned on and stuff is going to fly at it.

    • Karen Buck

      Don’t be sorry!!! These people are despicable!!! They only think of themselves and what they want, not what is good for the American people!!!

    • Dean Wankel

      You have liberal friends? Why!!

      • Eddie

        Dean…I was thinking the same thing myself. That’s like saying you enjoy stool softeners just because you like sitting on a toilet !!!! Now that I think about it having liberal friends is the same thing !

  • samazf

    Wonder if the media will give him a pass after they get over the AP bugging. I mean, breaking up is hard to do.

  • Charlayne Corder Brawdy

    So because it came from the WH now its all fine…. I am confused ??

  • Robert W. Rivera

    All these traitors to our Country need to be hanged in public for treason once convicted, that’s how serious this is.

    • Jen

      I spoke those words myself just last night. Doesn’t matter what your party affiliation is, facts are facts and treason is treason!

  • Dali0212

    Of course Obama and his administration are involved in the IRS Scandal. The Truth will come out.

  • Alex Perez

    Is this the USA still ? How can this be allowed ? Impeach these people ASAP !

  • Pamela Sierchio Inelli

    Obama has been lying for 5 years… his chickens are coming home to roost…..just hope the media does not have a short memory….Chicago tactics only work in Chicago…

    • Eddie

      The media doesn’t have a memory. In order to have a memory you must first have a brain. What is going to be absolutely hilarious is when the truth starts coming out about all of these scandals and who master minded them. That’s when we’ll see the MSM do one of two things…learn to grovel a lot and admit they were wrong OR …continue on down with the sinking ship. Either way I have taught myself how to find the truth behind a story. The MSM have shot themselves in the head and will never recover. We discovered they aren’t needed. We do just fine with them out of the picture. To all of the MSM who have found themselves lodged up OJUDASS’S ass. You’re there for one of two reasons…You either enjoy the view or it’s a warm place ! Get used to your new home…we won’t be needing you anymore !!!!!


    What’s the MYSTERY? Carl Levin .. Al Franken and other Senators DEMANDED the IRS target conservative groups YEARS ago

  • Malcolm Rawlinson

    Jarrett is behind this one, the statement she made about payback.

    • Cheryl Casey Ross

      You are so right. Valerie calls the shots in that oval office…BHO is too stupid.

  • kenny1801

    Everybody on the face of the earth ought to know by now that Obama is a worthless POS SONOFABITCH!!!

    • Monika McGall

      well said, my sentiments exactly

  • Steve Harper

    cant wait to see the carney get his sentence to jail just for being an arrogant little corksucker

    • Tom Gonza

      Mitt R was his corksucking teacher!

      • Bud-Kathy Jones

        What does Mitt have to do with this ?

        • Charles McVey

          Not a darn thing Bud-Kathy Jones.

        • Tim M

          Right. Everyone already knows it was Bush’s fault. George made him do it. George Bush has more power while OUT of office, than Obama can manage to enforce while IN office. So what does that tell you about the ‘power to lead’?

          • Monika McGall

            Obozo doesn’t have a clue how to lead

      • Shelly Branigan Olive

        Always go running back to blaming someone ELSE? Really? Are you 12?

      • Steve Harper

        I heard they all recieved their training from you a cork sucker par excellence

    • Cheryl Casey Ross


  • jimjenky

    Allegations will not result in impeachment. The House Republicans need hard, irrefutable proof that somehow Obama and the Office of the President was involved in it. AND, even then, a lot of the House Republicans, also known as RINOs, won’t have the spine to carry through an act of impeachment since the Clinton impeachment led to them being pilloried in the press so badly. You will also have the Senate RINOs, like McCain and Graham, run to the microphones with their Dem friends, and proclaim this does not further the cause of the American people, etc, etc. etc. Call me cynical, but those are politics in America today. You will notice that I haven’t even touched on the fact that there is not a single Democrat in the House to vote for impeachment, nor is there a single Democrat in Harry Reid’s Senate that will vote for it. It is all mote.

    • ericjodom

      So we give up and wave the white flag. Is that your strategy?

      • Bud-Kathy Jones

        We keep hammering at em, last man standing wins.


        no you all can all refold your tinfoil hats into kangols to block the summer heat

    • Jen

      Truth is, what the IRS did IS NOT ILLEGAL. However, so many other things that our President, who was not born in the US, has done is in fact illegal. Right now the GOP seems to be lacking balls (excuse my language)!!

      • linda15419

        Actually, what the IRS did is illegal. They targeted a group based on ideology (creed) and took action against them because of it. This is discrimination and is not allowed under the amended Constitution. You cannot deny a citizen their right to the pursuit of happiness because you don’t agree with their beliefs, especially when the very same service/product was provided other groups with different beliefs. This is unAmerican on its face and the very reason this country was founded! A good District Attorney, Special Prosecutor, etc., will find a way to charge the IRS and those responsible with very serious crimes. If, as you state, they have the balls to do it. And it’s not just the GOP. The Dems are angered by this breach of trust as well because if it stands, the same tactics can be used against them under a Republican administration. Time will tell and we will have to be patient to give the Congress time to do proper investigations.

  • Tony Boswell

    ‘Founding Father’s Journal’ List of Grievances:

    The President of the United States has a history of repeated injuries
    and usurpation, all having in direct object the establishment of an
    absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be
    submitted to a candid world.

    He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    He has failed in his duty to secure the borders of the United States
    and has not only allowed illegal immigration to flourish through failure
    to uphold this land’s lawful right to be a sovereign and independent
    nation. He has indeed, unfairly sued our own States which were seeking
    to uphold those laws.

    He has unlawfully and unjustly taken the
    People’s Taxes to support and give comfort to illegal immigrants, even
    to the extent of advertising availability of such support in foreign

    He has failed to enforce the National Voter Registration
    Act, which requires our Department Of Justice to sue those states that
    do not clean their voter registration rolls.

    He has sought to
    bypass the Legislative and Judicial Branches of Government through
    secret meetings, unlawful appointments, and use of Executive Orders to
    overreach and abuse his Constitutionally granted powers.

    He has
    allowed and perhaps ordered the IRS and the EPA to unlawfully ignore,
    target, harass, and intimidate those he deems political or ideological
    He has attacked the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution through Legislative, Executive Order, and political avenues.

    He has unconstitutionally and unlawfully endeavored to control the
    United States Economy through government funding of favored individuals
    and companies with the People’s taxes.

    He has instigated,
    supported, and allowed the takeover of the Nation’s Health Care system
    through a series of deceitful and illegal deals. He has lied to the
    American People, calling the individual mandate a fine, which is
    illegal, and finally expressing the same mandate as a tax to the Supreme

    He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    He has affected to render the Military incapable of defending their individual lives, and defending the United States as whole.

    He has failed to audit the Fed, despite repeated requests and the dire
    economic state of the Nation’s economy. He has therefore foolishly
    allowed the same FED to repeatedly print high levels of currency,
    degrading the value of the Nation’s currency and the Nation’s credit.

    He has set one group of citizens against the other for political
    expediency; although being the President of all of the States, and all
    of the Peoples, he has declared himself the enemy of those that support
    and defend the Nation’s Laws and the Nation’s Constitution.

    has allowed our Department of Justice to illegally wiretap and read
    emails without regard to the 1st Amendment of the Constitution.

    He has allowed our Department of Justice to sell weaponry to foreign
    criminals that since have been used to intimidate, injure, and kill the
    Nation’s citizens.
    He has conducted himself not as a President, but
    as a King, taking multiple, supremely expansive vacations at the
    expense of the People’s Taxes while the people suffer with relentless
    poverty, government dependence, and unemployment.

    He has
    repeatedly and consistently lied about the reasons for the terrorist
    attacks in Benghazi and at Fort Worth. He has declined to give our
    Representatives in faraway lands the protection of this Nation in a time
    of attack and has allowed such Representatives to be tortured and
    murdered by Terrorist hands.
    He has disrespected our soldiers,
    threatening withholding of pay and healthcare when politically disposed
    to do so. He has failed to support our troops abroad and he has failed
    to force the VA to support and give relief to troops that have come home
    injured and battered.

    He has sought to deny our soldiers their
    Constitutionally protected 1st Amendment Rights by creating military
    rules against Christian proselytizing.
    He has unlawfully deprived
    our people of their 4th Amendment Constitutional rights by allowing our
    Department of Justice to search without warrant without declaration of
    martial law or national emergency.

    He has sought to deny our
    church’s and other institutions Constitutionally protected 1st Amendment
    Rights by mandating intrusive and unconstitutional health care rules.

    He has declined and refused lawful requests for information in regards to his regime and his Government.

    He has unlawfully and unethically used the People’s Taxes to support
    enemies of the Nation, while shunning and embarrassing proven friends of
    the Nation.
    He has made speeches and consultations in foreign
    lands with foreign peoples denigrating our Nation’s Peoples, our
    Nation’s Culture, our Nation’s Laws, and our Nation’s Constitution.

    In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in
    the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by
    repeated injury. A President, whose character is thus marked by every
    act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free

    Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our
    Progressive brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts
    by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We
    have reminded them of the circumstances of our birth and liberty here.
    We have appealed to their justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured
    them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpation,
    which would inevitably decimate our shared Liberty and Freedoms. They
    too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We
    must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our
    Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in
    War, in Peace Friends.

    We, therefore, the People of the United
    States of America, in General Agreement, appealing to the Supreme Judge
    of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and
    by Authority of the good People of these States, and the Constitution of
    the United States which we wholeheartedly support, solemnly publish and
    declare, That these United States are, and of Right ought to be Free
    and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to
    the President, and that all political connection between the President,
    is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent
    Peoples, we declare that President Obama should be Impeached and found
    guilty and barred from all Government office from this day forward — And
    for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the
    protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our
    Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

    • soberguy

      May I please share this? I would be honored to do so and it needs to be done!

  • Don Gander

    There is a White House spokesman named Carney,
    Who for Obama can spout nothing but blarney.
    He should feel some pain,
    and be filled with shame,
    But instead on TV he looks smarmy.

    • Bud-Kathy Jones

      I’ll drink to that.

    • Cheryl Casey Ross

      Very good Don. I would like the press to require a bag placed over Carney’s head before he speaks. I can’t stand watching the way he leans on the podium and talks out of one side of his mouth and smirks as he looks down on the minions below him. A gym sock in his mouth would make the press confrences better too.

      • Gerry Box

        Have any of you noticed the constant brown spot on the end of his nose? And he raely opens his eyes. Could it be that he stillhas Obama’s crap smeared on his nose and over his eyes??hmmmmmmmmm

      • Tim M

        Carney should not be allowed to speak without a dog.poop-pickup bag anymore than someone is allowed to walk their dog in D.C. without one in hand.

      • Säge Späne

        That empty-head is not looking down on the minions. He’s reading from prepared notes, because he cannot keep the untruths stored in his little cranium! A bag over his head would force him to ad-lib, and then, maybe, we would hear something that, we could suspect, might really be true!!!

      How clever!

  • Bel P

    ” Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” ~ Declaration of Independence

    Will there be an investigation into the assassinations of Seal Team 6?

    • Cheryl Casey Ross

      God I hope so. The WH had all the means to take them down. And you know they told the enemy where to find them and shot it down. These are BHO’s buddies Muslims.

    You can scream, gripe, bitch, rant, moan and post your blog commentaries about it all you like but NOBODY IS GOING TO BE IMPEACHED !!!!

    I feel everybody’s pain quite keenly today.

    However the fact of the
    matter is that “THEY” can literally do ANYTHING they want and there
    is absolutely nothing that you can do about it !!!

    This is NOT an overstatement or exaggeration!!!


    This includes theft, arson, rape, breaking your house door in without a warrant or provocation, arrest for absolutely NO REASON whatsoever, beating, torture, assault, pedophilia, murdering you or any member of your family or your pets, sexual assault, planting of false evidence, lying ( both in and out of court) ANYTHING, ANYTHING, ANYTHING !!!

    They can even do any of these things in full view of witnesses, neighbors and even on camera for all to see and they will face either very minimal or ABSOLUTELY NO RECOURSE OR REPERCUSSIONS WHATSOEVER!!!

    It is incumbent on every individual to KNOW

    There is now only the ILLUSION that you have

    You have no freedom !!!

    You have owners !!!

    They own you !!!

    And worst of all is the startling fact that there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THAT ANYBODY CAN DO ABOUT IT !!!

    “Banding together” for the common good WILL NOT HELP !!!

    Writing to your Congressman WILL NOT HELP !!!

    Forming protest rallies WILL NOT HELP !!!

    Arming yourselves WILL NOT HELP !!!

    Forming militias WILL NOT HELP !!!

    Educating people WILL NOT HELP !!!

    Calling the police WILL NOT HELP !!!

    Calling your local news media WILL NOT HELP !!!

    Calling your local city, county or state representatives WILL NOT HELP !!!

    Being optimistic WILL NOT HELP !!!

    Demanding to be heard WILL NOT HELP !!!

    Standing up and shouting out to “rally the masses” WILL NOT HELP !!!

    Being outraged WILL NOT HELP !!!

      It is a sad time in our American history but I’m starting to believe all of this just look what this obama administration has done and has gotten away with and neither him or anyone in his cabinet will be held responsable, what the hell has happened to our once great nation it has fallen into the hands of progressive socialist communist ruin…and it’s all our fault…

    Benghazi-Who Is Responsible?

    By: Edward

    May 8, 2013

    There are numerous individuals in the media and in our
    countries leadership that seem to be unable to figure out who is to blame for
    the American deaths that occurred in the September 11, 2012 attack on our
    mission in Benghazi, Libya. Aside from
    the obvious answer that the terrorists with the guns were ultimately
    responsible, it must also be determined who, in our government, were
    responsible for the abject failure of command that was responsible for not
    providing adequate security and the failure to authorize our military to mount
    any kind of significant reinforcement or rescue of our personnel.

    The first step that needs to be taken is to elucidate these
    individuals on what a “Commander” is and what makes up the elements of
    command. The following is not taken from
    any manual or textbook but is simply my own knowledge based on 13½ years in the
    United States Army serving in numerous rolls from being a lowly private all the
    way up to the level of Section Chief/SSG.
    I have attended 2 levels of leadership schooling for non-commissioned
    officers and even attended Officers Candidate School (which I did not complete
    due to personal financial difficulties-I withdrew from the school and was told
    that when I was able to return, I could as long as long as I could still meet
    the educations requirements and the age requirements-both of which I was
    unfortunately unable to meet). I realize
    that some of what have written here may not conform exactly to Army doctrine
    but leadership is not confined to the Army and it should still be close enough
    for the differences to not matter very much and should still be able to make my

    What elements and aspects are involved in being a
    “Commander” and having “Command Authority” over others for the purpose of
    accomplishing a “Mission?” The following should give you some insight into what
    it means to be a “Commander” or “in Command.”

    Commander-The Leader and prime decision maker,
    also assumes ultimate responsibility for not only his actions and decisions but
    also responsibility for all decisions or actions of all of his
    subordinates. Though this may seem harsh
    to outsiders, It is the Commander’s responsibility to ensure that everyone in
    his command is properly trained and fully capable of successfully completing
    ANY mission that he could be called on to execute. If his subordinates are not properly trained
    or they are not fully capable then it is the Commanders responsibility to take
    whatever steps are necessary to make them so.

    Command Structure-Describes the actual chain of

    command from the lowest subordinate to the highest ranking member of the
    command team. The command structure needs to be CLEAR to ALL members in the
    organization. Any ambiguity could cause
    confusion that could jeopardize the success of missions.

    Command Atmosphere-Describes the relationships
    that exist between the Commander and the subordinate members of the chain of
    command. The atmosphere should allow
    subordinates to give feedback on missions including timing and methods of
    execution. Although members must be
    comfortable with giving feedback and recommendations, they must also know that
    once a decision is made, there will be no questions, just action. That said,
    the atmosphere must also allow subordinates who encounter unexpected
    situations, the freedom to inform the commander to see if he wants to adjust
    the execution of the mission.

    Command Environment-Describes the relationships
    between the commander and the members of his subordinate chain of command all
    the way down to the first line supervisors.
    The command environment is similar to the command atmosphere only it is
    more concerned with the professional relationship between team members. Even when individuals have a severe dislike
    of each other they must still know that their personal feelings CANNOT be allowed
    to influence the mission. ALL members
    MUST maintain their professionalism and civility when dealing with each other.

    Command Orders-Direct instructions to
    subordinates. It is through orders that a commander and his subordinate leaders
    direct the activities of the unit.
    Orders need to be CLEAR and CONCISE and should ALWAYS be recorded either
    in writing or by other means so that later review of the mission can analyze
    them to see if there is any way to improve performance on future missions.

    Command Guidance-Outline and advice on how to
    accomplish the mission. Guidance should
    always be given by the commander to ensure that his followers not only know
    WHAT he needs them to do, but, also HOW and WHY it must be done. This is where the integrity, ethics and
    morality of the leadership gets demonstrated and enforce throughout the entire

    Command Training-The tool used to ensure that
    all members of the team possess the skills required for success. No organization can succeed without training. All personnel in leadership positions must
    know how to motivate and inspire others to WANT to accomplish what the command
    needs them to do. They must also know
    every aspect of the jobs of their subordinates so they can ensure that they all
    know what they must do and how to do it.
    This training also builds subordinates confidence in the abilities and
    competence of their leaders.

    Commander’s Intent-Describes the overall intent
    behind the mission and command orders.
    “Commander’s Intent” is not always communicated directly. It is more of an impression that subordinates
    get through familiarity with their commanders.
    They learn what actions would be deemed acceptable and what actions
    would be deemed unacceptable. It also
    helps to guide them if they are cut off from the commander during a
    mission. If they know the overall intent
    of the mission then they can make appropriate decisions to further the goal of
    the missions.

    Now that you know a little of the leadership process,
    structure and methodology, It is easier to determine where our leaders fell
    short in the Benghazi, Libya disaster. I
    will start in reverse order of the above:

    Commander’s Intent-With all of the confusing
    signals coming out of the Whitehouse in regard to the middle-east, it is clear
    to see that the “Commander’s Intent” is NOT clearly defined in the minds of his
    subordinate leaders. The President has
    bowed to the leaders of countries who’s allegiance to America is questionable
    at best and non-existent at worst. He
    has been wishy-washy on support for our only real ally in the region (Israel)
    and has been allowing untold amounts of aid to poor into areas that are in the
    control of our supposed enemies (Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic extremists, etc.).

    Command Training-President Obama has been working
    as hard as he can to appoint individuals with questionable qualifications to
    every post he can. In his blind push for
    “diversity” he has even placed individuals with clear links to the Muslim
    Brotherhood. An organization KNOWN to have worked with Al Qaeda and Palestinian
    extremists to position in the Whitehouse.
    A Commander would NEVER risk the security of his organization just to be
    “Politically Correct.” His activities in
    these two areas alone would be sufficient to cause the kind of confusion that
    could jeopardize missions in a “sensitive” environment like Benghazi.

    Command Guidance-With Obamas “anything to win”
    attitude that he eagerly displayed during his campaign and the fact that
    virtually every move he makes he makes in secret, it is no wonder that no one
    really knows his true goals for America.
    We cannot even get him to allow the Hawaii Department of Health to allow
    access to his original birth records.
    His entire past is so tied up in deceit and confusion that no one can
    really claim to really know him at all.
    It is also very hard to give your subordinates guidance in a crisis when
    you are not even in touch with the command center for hours at a time as he was
    on that fateful night.

    Command Orders-As I said in #3 above, you have
    to be present to give orders. Even if
    they had wanted to have Obama grant “Cross-Border” authority, it is rumored
    that he was totally out of touch for over 5 hours. Any commander in such a crisis situation
    would have stayed at the command center to direct activities and to provide
    guidance. In his absence, who made the
    decisions? Was it Hillary, Panetta, who?
    If they had known the commanders intent they would have been able to act
    without orders, knowing that he would back up their decisions as long as they
    followed his “intent.”

    Command Environment-The “Command Environment”
    established by Hillary Clinton in the State Department appears to have allowed
    personal feelings and attitudes to affect the decision making process. There was no process for the decisions to not
    reinforce security in Benghazi and the decision to REDUCE security in Tripoli
    to be appealed or even questioned. The
    entire Obama administration has a “My way or the highway” attitude that
    strongly discourages ANY QUESTIONING of their authority. While such blind obedience IS required in
    certain situations, In any situation where such blind obedience would lead to
    unacceptable and unnecessary risks to the lives of fellow team members and,
    where no crisis has occurred yet, it is the DUTY of subordinate leaders to
    “take it up the chain” to higher authority is they feel that their concerns are
    not being taken seriously. With the
    Obama environment that kind of questioning is obviously NOT ENCOURAGED if it is
    even ALLOWED.

    Command Atmosphere-As with the command
    environment, there is not an atmosphere in the Obama administration that
    encourages feedback, recommendations or suggestions. Again, it is the “My way or the Highway”
    attitude that dominates.

    Command Structure-America has long had a clearly
    defined Command Structure it appears as though it is breaking down under
    Obama’s “leadership.” Members of the chain of command do not appear to have
    been clear as there were numerous “false starts” at rescue that were ordered to
    “Stand Down” and no one seems to know WHO gave the “Stand down” order. If the chain of command was clearly defined
    and followed it should have been clear from the duty logs who gave the order,
    when it was given and under whose authority it was given. Such a breakdown in the chain of command
    demonstrates clearly that SOMEONE was either grossly incompetent, coldly
    indifferent or intentionally subversive of the leadership process.

    Which brings us to the Commander and I quote
    myself from above:

    Leader and prime decision maker, also assumes ultimate responsibility for not
    only his actions and decisions but also responsibility for all decisions or
    actions of all of his subordinates.

    The Commander has the ultimate
    responsibility for the actions of his organization. Thus, the President, if he
    is an honest leader with integrity and high ethical and moral values, should
    ACCEPT that responsibility and resign for gross incompetence or be removed for
    intentional subversion. Also, his junior
    leaders should also acknowledge their complicity in this debacle by also
    offering their resignations. This would
    include Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (she has already been replaced but
    has not fully assumed her full share of responsibility for this incident), Leon
    Panetta (he has also been replaced, but, not because of this incident), as well
    as ALL OTHERS in the chain of command who allowed their better judgment to be superseded
    by this administration’s incompetence and flagrant disregard for the lives of
    our fellow Americans.

    The “In-Theatre” Commanders as soon as the call went out for
    assistance, should have at least been allowed, on their own authority, to
    load-out rescue teams, launch fighter jets and take any other actions that
    would have put those assets closer to the location of the crisis “just in case”
    they were needed. Standing orders to
    that effect should already be in place with all of our Commanders. If Americans cannot trust those Commanders
    with such orders then we need to find NEW Commanders! And, ALL of our aircraft are equipped with
    state-of-the-art communications equipment that would have allowed them to be
    recalled if they were ultimately not needed.

    At some point in the crisis that occurred that night,
    someone in the chain of command should have had the gonads to say “Let’s go get
    them out” and assume the consequences afterwards. The fact that there was NO ONE who DARED to
    follow the example of those two brave ex-Navy Seals is in-and-of-itself is very
    disturbing and depressing.

    Should America have a DEFAULT “Commanders Intent” in this
    country that says “You do not abandon any Americans serving their country
    behind enemy lines for ANY REASON?”

    I leave it to you to decide how well I have discussed this
    issue and want to leave you with this:

    Ultimately the “Commander-in-Chief” DOES have a boss….It is
    up to “We the people…” to administer the necessary discipline to OUR

    Together For

  • interestedobserver2

    In the final analysis, as Harry Truman used to say, “the buck stops here,” right on the President’s desk. Whether or not he personally authorized it, people working for him, and who he selected and trusted implicitly did so in his name and he should be held accountable. In the military, whenever something goes wrong in a unit, the first action considered by the leadership is firing the commanding officer. Even if he didn’t even know it was going on. Why? Because he SHOULD have known it was going on and taken steps to prevent or correct the situation. Ignorance is never an excuse for a commander, much less the Commander-in-Chief. With ultimate power comes ultimate responsibility, and this man should not be permitted to continue dodging his responsibility.

    1. He was no where to be seen during the terrorist attacks in Libya on Sept.11. There were two “stand down” orders. By who? I know he had to get his rest, he had to hit the talk show circuit so was it Biden? Nah, he thinks some schmuck has balls while he is laid to rest. Then who? Hillary? Nah, she hated Obama during their electoral baloney in 2007 but sucked up to him to the point of saying “What does it matter?”. Biden was WTFing this one, he will be President despite his dumb remarks, he is but a child compared to this callous look the other way while my husband demeans the Oval Office because I WILL be President one day.

    2. He has no idea, and let’s make this clear, no politics please, when it comes to the IRS. No politics, the douche has this entity in charge of OUR HEALTHCARE. An unconstitutional situation in itself, Obamacare, now we have this silly situation with the IRS targeting his adversaries. Now this is getting wacky.

    3. The AP story, nope, no idea. What? How could he possibly have any idea of this situation, he only dictates the media and what it is supposed to talk about, report. Mafia mentality? Nah, please look the other way, Chitown politics is running America.

    4. He killed Osama, it was him, he did it. How are those SEALS who carried out the decision doing? No pictures, too disgusting, yet we have the Boston bomber on a table riddled with bullets and brothers trail marks on his belly.

    Oh yeah, we buried Osama with Muslim prayer yet denied every single SEAL their rights when they died in a helo crash.

    5. Fed officer killed by a Fast and Furious gun. Off to Hurricane Sandy, which is going gang busters. Eric, please make sure we close Gitmo, we need guys to play with with our drones. What? Stay open? No problem, we will watch America!

    This monster has over 400 reasons to not be president. I couldcare less that it is skeptical he is not an American by birth, he has given me nothing to show in honor, integrity, grace, or humility. He is an asshole. He hates anyone who does not agree with him, he is a bully. irionic since his wife and many others are trying to stop bullying.

    The origin of this “news story” is entirely false. ABC and/or ABC News have said no such thing.

    Trey Hardin is not a reporter, nor his he more than an occasional Republican “talking head” on ABC, Faux News and elsewhere. He is a “Republican strategist”. Just like a “Democratic strategist” his role is to spout talking points and party propaganda.

    The quote is his opinion – nothing more – and is not supported by any real proof. Thus it should not be accepted as fact, nor as a “bombshell”.

    Before you all start condemning him – look him up for yourself. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but each can’t have his own facts.

    The head of the National Treasury Employee Union (NTEU), which represents employees of the Internal Revenue Service, met with President Barack Obama in the White House one day before the manager of the IRS’s “Technical Unit” suggested establishing a “Sensitive Case Report” for the tax-exempt status applications of Tea Party groups, according to data from the official White House visitor log and the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.

    The White House visitor log shows that NTEU President Colleen Kelley met with Obama–“POTUS,” President of the United States–on March 31, 2010.

I for one do not wish to see the waste of all the blood from the Revolution forward; as things stand that appears to be danger certain.

  • jimjenky

    I have no doubt in my mind that the IRS targeting of conservative groups came on orders from the Office of the President. Obama himself may not have actually issued the order, but he has been sure to surround himself with people who feel the same way he does. A thorough investigation needs to happen, either with a fast-moving special prosecutor or Congress, and if the blame falls on the Office of the President, impeachment should swiftly follow. The problem is, the many RINOs in the House of Representatives don’t have the integrity or spine to impeach Obama even if he were caught standing over a dead body with a smoking pistol in his hand and video showing him pulling the trigger.

  • constitutionalsoldier

    Obama will never be punished for anything, no matter the proof, no matter the crime. There are entirely too many people that believe we must not hold him to the same standards as others because he is “black”. Ignore all the fraud, ignore how he is controlled and the government is a mess. Since he is “black”, the affirmative action, sympathy and white guilt will let him slide. He could be a homosexual Muslim, responsible in some ways for murders in Chicago. Doesn’t matter. He is “black”..
