Benghazi, Russia & Syria: Why Obama, Clinton Nor Biden Are Qualified To Lead


Perhaps Hillary Clinton's now famous outburst, made during her testimony before congress, will do more to end her political career than all her lies and blunders as our Secretary of State combined. One can only hope. Among her serial lies, she asserted that she was unaware that requests for greater security at our Libyan installations were denied by her State Department, while in actuality, the consular security apparatus was reduced. A new congressional report proves that she signed off on the security reductions.  Like her husband this probably makes her a perjurer. Although most of her malfeasance will escape the attention of those who pay little attention as to how they are governed, the video clip of her infamous outburst will no doubt be seen innumerable times if she decides to run for president in 2016. It's perfect for an anti-Clinton ad campaign because it's so short and so damning.

But let me try to answer the question posed by her absurd outburst. In my book, Lessons from Fallen Civilizations, I develop a list of ten immutable principles that govern the fall of great civilizations.

My immutable law number one reads:

No nation can long survive once its citizenry ceases to believe its culture worth saving 

In 479 BC a few thousand Greek warriors repelled a million Persian invaders.  Less than 150 years later the Greeks could only muster the soldiers from two city states, from Thebes and Athens, to oppose to the invading Macedonians led by Phillip II and his son, Alexander the Great.  And in one lost battle, the freedom of Greece, where democracy was born, vanished.  The Greeks remained a captive people for over two millennia.

It matters, Madam Secretary, because you and your boss did nothing, before and during the attack, to protect our men and women who you put in harm's way.  It matters because it makes you unfit to send men and women into combat.  It matters because if you were to become president and or your boss stays in office, our men and women may not want to lay down their lives for the likes of you. Recruitment and dedication to duty within our military, at some point, can plummet, as is the case in Europe.  During your presidential campaign, you ran ads against Obama asserting that he was not qualified to answer that 3 am crisis phone call. Benghazi matters because it demonstrates that neither of you are.

Putin, the Reset Button, and Syria:

On one of her first foreign trips Clinton arranged for an international press conference to be held at the beginning of her meeting with Putin in Moscow.  On display was a placard which portrayed a big button which was underscored with what her State Department flunkies thought was the Russian word for "reset."  Only they got the wrong word "pereguzka" which translates to "overloaded" or "overcharged."  And Putin made it obvious to Hillary and all the press in attendance, he was not pleased.  This embarrassing stunt-gone-wrong at the beginning of Hillary's tenure as Secretary of State was designed to tell the whole world that Bush was a failure as an internationalist and an appeaser.  It unmistakably set the tone for Obama administration's utterly failed attempt to woe Russia to our side. The Russian world chess Champion, Garry Kasporov, a freedom fighter and brilliant Russia watcher told the Gateston Institute in New York City last week that "Putin can be found connected in one way or another to every instance of violence and trouble on the globe."

Flash forward to this week, our new Secretary of State jetted off to Moscow to see if he could get Putin to help us with the Syrian civil war.  In response, Putin made Kerry wait three hours before his meeting and fiddled with his pen while Kerry droned on. The next day with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, standing next to him, Kerry announced a Russo/American peace plan for Syria.  Kerry proclaimed, "We've affirmed our commitment to a negotiated settlement as the essential means of ending bloodshed."

To say that this peace plan is riddled with trip wires of failure would be an understatement.  It assumes, like so many failed Middle Eastern peace plans of the past, that the forces of moderation will cause the armies of blood-thirsty jihadists in their midst, those who long for a new caliphate and the destruction of the West, to stand down (to use the Benghazigate term). I think Kerry was on a fool's errand precisely because his trip was one more example of how the hapless Obama administration can't face facts.  Putin can't be an honest partner in this so-called peace process. He was and still is a dedicated Soviet KGB man whose life's mission is settling scores with the US for our winning the cold war and bankrupting his beloved Soviet empire. He hates us as much as the Islamists do. Therefore he inclines to side with them, especially if he can see that they can do damage to US interests.

It's typical Obama naiveté to be laboring under the self-delusion that Putin can be brought to our side just because this administration proclaims its hatred of everything Bush and is willing to appease. Putin is selling advanced weaponry to both Iran and Syria. His staunchest ally in the world is Syria with the relationship with the Assad family going back decades when the Soviets were given a base and warm-water port there.  Putin doesn't want our friendship. He wants our demise. He clearly looks upon Kerry's entreaties with the contempt of a tyrant.  So much for the "reset button" with Russia.

From the Worst to the Dumbest

Syrian destruction depicted… which side is right?

Syrian destruction depicted… which side is right?

The situation in Syria has one parallel to the Benghazi hearings in congress.  In Syria it is impossible to pick sides. There are no good choices. The Assad regime is a close ally of Iran and supports terrorist groups such as Hezbollah.  The strongest rebel group fighting the Assad regime, the al-Nusra front is aligned with al Qaeda.  Add to this Syria's chemical weapons stores and you have no good options, arguably a nightmare.  A wider war threatens both Israel and US interests in the region. This situation would be extremely difficult to resolve for a president with excellent diplomatic skills, experience and instincts. Obama has shown himself to be clueless in this high-stakes international arena. He is out of his league.  President George W. Bush observed, "Running American foreign policy is like playing chess in three dimensions."

The Syrian parallel to the Benghazi hearings is this. We have no good options.  If the hearings lead to the impeachment or resignation of Obama, the country ends up with Biden who could run in 2016 as an incumbent!  This would be very bad because this is a man who, over the last four decades, has voted against practically every weapons system the country has developed, every weapons system that keeps us safe.  He has voted against missile defense every time he had the chance.  In the Benghazi hearings, in an increasingly dangerous, menacing world, we are faced with two bad choices, between being governed by a president that is our worst or our dumbest.

    Thanks for the comment Larry. I shared your opinion for many years about the "valuable ally", Israel. Then I started some serious research and learned a great deal more than I knew then. Israel and the Rothschild Zionists who created her are the true 5000 pound gorilla in the room (world). The Rothschilds have achieved their 200 year quest to own all of the central banks of 185 countries in the modern world, thus control the exclusive rights to create debt currency out of thin air. In the process, they have accumulated more than half of the world's total wealth, estimated at over $500trillion. They own outright all of the sources of information, from Hollywood to the news services, as well as all the investment banks. They also own the government......not the so-called elected positions, but all of the permanent positions of true power and control. They have their own agenda, which is devastating to the well-being of the normal citizens. This is all very apparent when one looks objectively at what is going on in today's world. We have been carefully and thoroughly indoctrinated our whole lives to "not look" at semites in any negative way. There was a reason for this.

      Ann, I have now come to agree with you. Our brave soldiers are being killed by Afghans who were their trainees. Its now time to say to the Muslim world, "If you harbor terrorists we will take you out and we will leave you to rebuild your country not us.

    This was quite clear before the Dictator was elected and his Csars were put into place. You can see Hillary is mentally deranged just look at the picture above. I bet she does not even comb her own hair.

      I'd be surprised if she even changes her drawers.

      Hillary could become our next president because the left has infiltrated academia, government, and sadly even our religious institutions.

  • Patrick Riley

    It amazes me that so many people still think that Obama, Biden, Clinton and other politicians in Washington are leaders (who are "not fit to lead"). They are most certainly not our leaders but are only doing what they are told to do by the Rothschild Zionists who are the factual leaders of the US. The agenda of these true hidden powerful leaders is not what most Americans imagine, so things look puzzling when considered in the context of normalcy. The Zionists have been busy for over 200 years implementing the take down of the Goyim so that they may claim their rightful place as the inheritors of the Earth. Their day is not far off.

    • drbhelthi

      Yes. The illuminat-NAZI are the major tool of this family. This is what happened when the NAZI machine transferred its leaders to the USA, 1945-1952 via Operation Paper Clip. The CIA, NSA, NASA were all established by NAZI leadership. The CIA was established by NAZI leadership with a black budget that Congress is not aware of and has little control over, yet approved in 1947. The CIA has conducted coups against foreign governments since 1950, without congressional approval. The CIA was delivering weapons to
      its minions who have been attacking ASSAD, and broadcasting propaganda against his administration. It is a guise to acquire Syria, open the road to Iran, to overthrow Iran and gain control of the entire Near East AND OIL. The CIA has been playing both ends against the middle since 1950. The middle is the USA. Hilary Clinton is only a smaller pawn, whereas alias Obama is a larger
      pawn.

      The CIA delivering weapons to its minions, who are battling ASSAD, backfired. This resulted in four Americans being killed. Hilary Clinton´s job was to cover up the CIA´s illegal activity, and stalemate the discovery. Americans and the world were blinded from knowing that via the CIA the US was arming the alleged rebels - who in essence are US-hired forces, not under control of the U.S. Congress. Illegal.

      Dismantling the CIA was begun by President John F. Kennedy, Sr. Which, is one of the major reasons for which he was assassinated. The illuminati-NAZI control the CIA, the US Congress permits the stupidity to continue, while the illuminati-NAZI and its minions continue to dismantle America via patsies such as the alias Barrack H. Obama, and subordinates like Hilary Clinton and the Viet Nam fraud, John Kerry.

    • http://larrykelley.com/ Larry Kelley

      JFK was killed by a man who was married to Russian spy and who travelled extensively to Russia and Cuba. JFK was a martyr in the cold war between the US and Communism.

    • drbhelthi

      Please update your information. Neither of the MARIA-hired, nor the third assassin,.the CIA operative, who shot Kennedy were married to Russian women. Lee Harvey Oswald was drinking a coke with co-workers near the coke machine on the first floor when JFKSr was murdered.

    • drbhelthi

      PS. The murder of JFKSr was unrelated with the cold war. He was dismantling the CIA, removing the "U.S. Federal Reserve" from private ownership, and investigating illegal oil-busuness activities of the vice president, Lyndon B. Johnson. The illuminat-NAZI machine, and oil moguls pre-empted these three goals of JFK and Robert Kennedy Sr. There are less important motives also associated.

    • http://larrykelley.com/ Larry Kelley

      Patrick, you're nuts. Israel is an indispensable ally.

    • drbhelthi

      The UN-chartered "nation" of "Israel" is not the ISRAEL of the Old Testament. The current "nation of Israel" is a cult of thieves surfing on the reputation of ISRAEL of the Bible, parasiting on the Republic of the United States of America. "Indispensable ally" sounds like a spin that a member of AIPAC would write, a thought that modern-day "Israelis" want Americans and the world to believe.

    SEAL Team 6 Deaths Biden Now Blamed in SEAL Team 6 Deaths The families of three fallen Navy SEAL Team Six members say President Obama and Vice President Biden are culpable for the deaths of their sons for publicly identifying the unit that killed Osama bin Laden and pursuing policies that coddle Muslims and put our own troops at a tactical disadvantage.

    SEAL Team Six carried out the daring raid in Pakistan in early May 2011. Three months later, three members of the unit were among 38 killed in a Chinook helicopter crash in Afghanistan. Twenty-five of the dead were special operations forces. Larry Klayman is founder of Freedom Watch, a WND columnist and the attorney representing three of the families who lost their sons. He said the Obama administration carelessly and illegally revealed the role of SEAL Team 6 shortly after announcing the successful mission to kill bin Laden.

    “Shortly after that successful raid on bin Laden, the president ・ through the vice president for political purposes ・ released the name of SEAL Team Six. That’s classified information, and even (then) Defense Secretary Robert Gates was critical of that. So that was like putting a target on the backs of the sons of my clients,” said Klayman, who revealed the helicopter may have been infiltrated by the Taliban before the crash because the Afghans on board were last-minute changes from the names on the original flight manifest.

    Klayman said Vice President Joe Biden deserves special blame for these deaths.

    “Biden did something, which was more than irresponsible. He served on foreign relations committees, intelligence committees. He knew, or should have known, what he was doing. He should be held accountable. Frankly, he should even be held criminally accountable for doing that,” Klayman said.

    THERE ARE 75 SOCIALISTS IN CONGRESS WITH TIES TO THE COMMUNIST PARTY USA

    12-19-2012 12:46 pm - DiscoverTheNetworks.org

    The 75-member Congressional Progressive Caucus, co-chaired by Reps. Raul Grijalva and Keith Ellison, is closely allied with the Democratic Socialists of America. The Communist Party USA identifies Progressive Caucus members as its “allies in Congress.”

    The Socialist wing of the Democratic Party Consists of 76 Members of Congress who have close ties to the Institute for Policy Studies, the Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA

    Current Members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus

    The Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) was founded in 1991 by Bernie Sanders, a self-identified socialist who had recently been elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. Sanders’ CPC co-founders included House members Ron Dellums, Lane Evans, Thomas Andrews, Peter DeFazio, and Maxine Waters. The Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) was also involved in CPC’s founding and in Caucus activities thereafter; IPS continues to advise CPC on various matters to this day.

    Another key player in establishing CPC was the Democratic Socialists of America(DSA), which has maintained a close alliance with the Caucus ever since. In 1997, DSA’s political director, Chris Riddiough, organized a meeting with CPC leaders to discuss how the two groups might be able to “unite our forces on a common agenda.” Among those who participated in the meeting were Bernie Sanders, labor leaderRichard Trumka, professor Noam Chomsky, feminist Patricia Ireland, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Senator Paul Wellstone, journalist William Greider, and the socialist authorBarbara Ehrenreich.

    A 2002 report by Joelle Fishman, chair of the Communist Party USA‘s Political Action Committee, stated that the Progressive Caucus “provides an important lever that can be used to advance workers’ issues and move the debate to the left in every Congressional District in the country.” In a 2010 CPUSA report, Party member David Bell identified Progressive Caucus members as his organization’s “allies in Congress.”

    As of April 2011, CPC consisted of 74 members of the House of Representatives—all of them leftist Democrats—and one U.S. Senator (Bernie Sanders, an Independent who caucuses with the Democrats).

    This is an alphabetical list of all members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus(CPC) as of April 2011:

  • provemewrong

    They are both students of Saul Alinsky's philosophy: " The best way to destroy something you hate is to become a member and do it from within". Just as homosexuals join the Catholic preisthood to destroy the Church from within!

    • iguana one

      I don't want to prove you wrong but............ gay men join the Catholic Church because it's where they want to be. It's where they belong. Because the Catholic Church is the most sordid, lurid, anti-Christian, pagan and "false " religion on earth since the 13th century.

    • http://larrykelley.com/ Larry Kelley

      Proveme, You are right. We have definitely elected and reelected a Saul Alinsky radical to be our president. The question remains, can we overcome such a mistake?

    • Crex21

      maybe they are just rying to hide from their homosexuality but it overpowers them?

    Add this to Syria, Russia and Benghazi:

    On August 6, 2011, a military helicopter— Extortion 17— carrying thirty-eight men (including twenty-five of the elite SEAL Team 6, five National Guard and Army Reserve, and eight Afghan commandos) was shot down over Taliban-controlled territory in eastern Afghanistan. They had been on a top secret mission to take out a high-value target. It was the worst loss of life in a single day since the war in Afghanistan began. Per a 1250-page military report, it was simply the result of a “lucky shot” by Taliban soldiers perched on top of a building. Per families of those killed and military experts at a press conference held on May 9, 2013, this is a lie among a host of other lies.

    After the families attended a several hour military briefing about this “lucky shot,” describing what happened and why their sons died, they smelled a rat and started digging around. Billy and Karen Vaughn, parents of Navy SEAL Aaron C. Vaughn, started poking around at the “official” story and found not a rat, but a stinking swamp, a coverup that went all the way to the top.

    When the Vaughns began trying to drain the swamp, they received what the Obama administration is famous for: the shakedown. None other than one of the highest ranking officers in the nation—Admiral William McRaven, commander at U.S. Special Operations Command—paid the Vaughns a little visit, in essence telling them to keep their mouths shut.

    What exactly happened on August 6, 2011? What went wrong—or in this case went right that has the Obama administration dispatching high-ranking officers as thugs?
    There are two possibilities, according to information revealed at the press conference:
    1. The Obama administration sent American soldiers on a suicide mission, or
    2. Someone set up our American heroes—that is, had them murdered—that may include the Afghan government—or shockingly may include Obama himself.

    We learned seven major facts at the press conference:
    1. Thirty SEAL Team 6, National Guard, and Army Reserve were packed into a decrepit 1960s era CH-47 helicopter (something, according to military experts, that was unheard of.) Per military experts, special operations were always conducted with the state-of-the-art MH-47 helicopter—the helicopter SEAL Team 6 exclusively trained in. Further, never—ever—were that many special operations personnel packed into a single helicopter. They were always split up into small groups with multiple MH-47s.

    2. Although the military could have easily taken out the Taliban positions with a drone strike prior to the operation, as the families were later told, this was not done because there were possible “friendlies” among the Taliban; the United States wanted to “win the minds and hearts of the enemy.”
    Billy Vaughn, father of Navy SEAL Aaron Vaughn, speaking at the press conference with rage in his voice, blasted this ludicrousness: "Aaron did not become a Navy SEAL Team 6 Gold Squad to win the hearts and minds of the Islamic jihadists. He became a Navy SEAL to fight for this republic and defeat the enemy!"

    3. Although the military had intel that the Taliban were planning on firing on a helicopter, although an intense battle had been raging for several hours, and although normal protocol mandated that the CH-47 required at least one gunship escort, all normal rules of war were suspended.

    But now for the real coverup by the Obama administration:
    4. There were eight nameless Afghan commandos onboard the CH-47. Eight Afghan commandos were loaded onto the CH-47 along with their American counterparts; but at the last minute, they were replaced without changing the manifest. It was as if someone knew they were going on a suicide mission and pulled them out. The official in charge of the investigation (General Jeffrey Colt), in his 1250-page report, did not address this fact and did not even mention it. In fact, it is likely these original Afghan commandos contacted the Taliban, telling them the CH-47 was on its way. It appears the Taliban knew the exact time and route the CH-47 would be using; that the only way the “lucky shot” would have been possible with the helicopter thousands of feet in the air in cover of darkness would have been if the Taliban had been tipped off.

    5. Everyone on Extortion 17 was immediately cremated without permission from the families, supposedly because the bodies were so badly burned in the crash. According to Charles Strange, father of Navy SEAL Michael Strange, this need to immediately cremate everyone aboard is a complete lie. Taliban on the ground in fact found the bodies of the crew. The Obama administration cremated everyone in order to cover up something.

    6. The CH-47 black box was “lost” according to the military investigation—“washed away by an Afghan flood.” As most know, aircraft black boxes don’t get “lost”; they are virtually indestructible and carry a tracking device that makes them easy to locate. It was “lost” in order to cover up something the Obama administration wants to keep hidden.

    7. Probably one of the most shocking revelations in the SEAL Team 6 coverup, something that was first brought out during the press conference that shows Obama is no Christian but is in fact a closet Muslim, is that Obama disallowed the name of Jesus to be spoken during the initial military memorial service in Kabul and permitted a radical Islamic iman to curse our dead heroes.

      Dear Lokiswife, Thank you for writing this passionate note. I plan to use some of your information in my upcoming article. I assume you are a family member of some hero who lost his life. My heart goes out to you. I will do my part to keep your story alive.

    • lokiswife

      I found it in a newsletter online and just copied most of it, I had heard about it earlier but this was the first detailed story on it. I posted it to help the families of those men get answers to why this happened and trace the smelly trail back to those responsible. The circumstances of the crash raise too many questions as to why they suddenly decided to abandon military protocol and do things against the rules. Why? Who gave the orders? I didn't lose a family member in the crash but my heart goes out to those who did. They deserve answers and the media will ignore them. It is up to us to get the story out there, and keep pushing for answers...likewise on Benghazi... we owe it to those families to help them heal.

    Why does it take forever to realize that Hillary lies with the best of them. The Clinton body count is now over 130, four more added by Hillary.

      Jude,
      We can only hope that Hillary's Benghazi performance will preclude her from becoming president.

    • drbhelthi

      Hilary Clinton is not the person who decided to arm the CIA-MOSSAD influenced insurgents against ASSAD. Hilary Clinton was not the person with authority to order a SEAL-type of team to the aid of the Benghazi operatives. Hilary Clinton was a front for the alias, Barrack H. Obama. Hilary Clinton was appointed to be the scapegoat and protect the illustrious, illegal alien responsible for two types of treason in the Benghazi debacle. One of her assignments was to stalemate the discovery of the facts surrounding the US-CIA arming the insurgents against Assad, and prevent Americans from knowing that the CIA continues to undermine Americans and particularly the U.S. Congress.
