Congress Overrides Obama’s Veto of Bill Letting 9/11 Families Sue Saudi Arabia

From Fox News.

Congress on Wednesday overwhelmingly rejected President Obama’s veto of a bipartisan bill letting families of Sept. 11 victims sue the Saudi Arabian government, in the first successful veto override of Obama’s presidency.

Marking a significant defeat for the White House, the House ensured the bill will become law after voting 348-77 to override Wednesday afternoon. This followed a 97-1 vote hours earlier in the Senate.

Despite last-ditch warnings from the Obama administration that the legislation could hurt national security and was “badly misguided,” lawmakers dismissed the concerns.

“This bill is about respecting the voices and rights of American victims,” Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., speaking on the Senate floor moments before Wednesday’s vote in that chamber, pushed back hard on Saudi government objections to the legislation.

“It’s very simple. If the Saudis were culpable, they should be held accountable. If they had nothing to do with 9/11, they have nothing to fear,” Schumer said.

My god, Chuckie actually had a glimmer of moral integrity. For a change.

Despite an expectation that Congress would override, the White House made a last-ditch attempt to fight it. In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Reid, Obama warned the bill could cause chaos in U.S. foreign affairs, as other countries would use the measure to justify the creation of ways to target “U.S. policies and activities that they oppose.”

“As a result, our nation and its armed forces, State Department, intelligence officials and others may find themselves subject to lawsuits in foreign courts.” Obama wrote in a letter delivered Tuesday.

Like he gives a fuck about American citizens. His foreign policy, especially toward muzzie extremists, has been nothing short of treasonous.

Suing the Saudi shitbags won’t bring real justice. They’re some of the worst terrorist facilitators on the planet.  After 9/11, we should have bombed them first.

Comey to Explain (Again) Why He Gave Clinton Aides Immunity in Email Scandal

He’ll just lie, spin, and deny like he did previously. And just think, this assclown in in charge of an agency tasked with national security.

From the Wall Street Journal.

FBI Director James Comey appears Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee, where he’ll get another chance to explain his agency’s double standard regarding Hillary Clinton. His probe of the former Secretary of State’s private email server is looking more like a kid-glove exercise with each new revelation.

House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz on Friday disclosed that the FBI granted immunity to Mrs. Clinton’s top aides as part of its probe into whether Mrs. Clinton mishandled classified information. According to Mr. Chaffetz, this “limited” immunity was extended to former chief of staff Cheryl Mills and senior adviser Heather Samuelson, in order to get them to surrender their laptops, which they’d used to sort through Mrs. Clinton’s work-versus-personal emails.

Why the courtesy? “If the FBI wanted any other Americans’ laptops, they would just go get them—they wouldn’t get an immunity deal,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan told Politico. He’s right. The FBI merely had to seek a subpoena or search warrant. By offering immunity, the FBI exempted the laptops and their emails as potential evidence in a criminal case.

Beth Wilkinson, who represents Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson, says the immunity deals were designed to protect her clients against any related “classification” disputes. This is an admission that both women knew their unsecure laptops had been holding sensitive information for more than a year. Meanwhile, Mr. Comey also allowed Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson to serve as lawyers for Mrs. Clinton at her FBI interview—despite having been interviewed as witnesses and offered immunity.

The FBI also offered immunity to John Bentel, who directed the State Department’s Office of Information Resources Management; to Bryan Pagliano, Mrs. Clinton’s IT guru; and to an employee of Platte River Networks (PRN), which housed the Clinton server. Usually, the FBI only “proffers” immunity deals in return for genuine information. In this case the FBI seemed not to make any such demands. The deals also did not include—as they often do—requirements that the recipients cooperate with other investigating bodies, such as Congress.

Meantime, the FBI waited until late Friday to dump another 189 pages of documents from its investigation, including notes from interviews with Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson, Mr. Pagliano, Clinton confidante Huma Abedin, and Platte River Network employees. They raise even more questions.

Was the FBI concerned that Ms. Mills in the fall of 2013 (after Congress began investigating the Benghazi attacks) called Mr. Pagliano to ask about software that could be used for “wiping computer data”? Or that a Platte River Networks employee, after getting instructions from Ms. Mills to begin deleting Clinton emails more than 60 days old, entitled the resulting work ticket the “Hillary coverup operation”? Or that a PRN employee was instructed by the company’s lawyer “not to answer any [FBI] questions related to conversations with” David Kendall, Mrs. Clinton’s personal lawyer?

The FBI documents also disclose that Mr. Pagliano admitted to having, at the beginning of Mrs. Clinton’s tenure, several conversations with unnamed State Department official(s) who expressed concern that her private server posed “a federal records retention issue,” and that it was likely transmitting classified information. When Mr. Pagliano relayed these concerns to Ms. Mills, she ignored them.

We’d also love to hear what the FBI made of the news that Mrs. Clinton maintained a Gmail account. The Democratic presidential nominee has never disclosed this detail. Speaking of revealing, President Obama has publicly said he found out about Mrs. Clinton’s server through “news reports.” Yet the FBI notes reveal that he emailed Mrs. Clinton on her private server under a pseudonym. Ms. Abedin told the FBI that the White House was notified when Mrs. Clinton changed her email address so the President’s secure server wouldn’t exclude her emails. Was Mr. Obama fibbing too?

These columns have long opposed the appointment of special prosecutors, but that depends on the ability of established legal officers to do their jobs without political favor. Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton case understandably makes Americans wonder if their government can be trusted to perform this duty. On the evidence of the FBI’s special treat for Mrs. Clinton and her aides, they are right to wonder.

Is that a rhetorical conjecture? OF COURSE the FBI covered up and refused to prosecute Hillary’s criminal enterprise.  Her intent, tampering with evidence, deleting incriminating emails, lying before Congress, and deliberate use of an illegal, unsecure server to store and transmit classified information, is right in front of everyone’s face.  She knew that it was a national security violation, but did it anyway.

Obama knew about this and participated in the email exchange.

Comey is as crooked as a fucking dog’s hind leg. Thanks to him, the FBI has lost integrity and its reputation.

Benghazi Embassy Responder Slams Hillary in Speech

From the Elyria Chronicle.

A man who fought terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012 which left four Americans dead visited Lorain County Community College on Thursday, and he said failures in leadership led to the attacks.

Kris “Tanto” Paranto is a former Army Ranger and private security contractor who was part of the U.S. government’s Global Response Staff that responded to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in which U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three security contractors died.

Paranto spoke to a large crowd Thursday evening and detailed the 13 hours he and five other security contractors spent in a firefight while defending the consulate. Before the lecture, Paranto spoke to the media about the events, which he said briefly caused him to despise the United States because of the way the attacks were portrayed.

The attack in Benghazi has been a rallying cry for the Republican Party which has criticized the handling of the attack and subsequent explanation of what happened by Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Thursday’s event was sponsored by the Lorain County Republican Party, but David Arredondo, vice chairman of the Lorain County Republican Party, said Paranto’s visit wasn’t political in nature.

“This is current news, it is not a political event,” Arredondo said. “This is American history and something that needs to be known by all Americans who are interested in the security and safety of our nation.”

During the press briefing prior to the Thursday lecture, Paranto said what happened in Benghazi, and the lack of leadership that was displayed is a story that needs to be told.

Paranto said numerous requests for additional security leading up to the attacks in Benghazi fell on deaf ears. He said the State Department also contracted with a terrorist organization to act as a protective force and the consulate was about 200 meters away from a terrorist safe house.

Paranto made it clear he has no respect for Clinton. He said Republicans and Democrats alike are waking up to the lies she’s told about the 2012 attack.

Paranto said he won’t endorse Donald Trump for president even though the campaign has asked for his endorsement, but he said he does support Trump as a presidential candidate because Republicans support the military and law enforcement.

“I support Trump over Clinton,” Paranto said. “As far as leadership goes Hillary is not a good person let alone a leader.”

Paranto said that when Stevens arrived in Benghazi, he had very little security. Paranto said he warned those at the consulate that if they got attacked they would die, and he said he repeatedly asked for help during the attack that never arrived.

Paranto scoffed at the idea that a video mocking the prophet Muhammad had anything to do with the attack in Benghazi, an explanation initially given as a motivation for the attack.

There was absolutely no protest activity in Benghazi that day, Paranto said, and it was quiet right up until the consulate was attacked.

“It was a very well-coordinated attack,” Paranto said.

The fight in Benghazi was depicted in the film “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” released this year based on the book “13 Hours.”

The movie premiered in January, and it tells the story of how the six American security contractors fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there.

Paranto said he served as a consultant on the film, which he described as extremely accurate. However, portions of the film’s accuracy have been questioned by a CIA chief who was in Benghazi, and who Paranto said gave orders to stand down, which caused the six men to lose time in getting to the consulate to defend it.

The chief, known as “Bob” told the Washington Post he never gave orders to stand down.

Paranto said he doesn’t hold the chief accountable for what happened in Benghazi because he was under a lot of stress that night and panicked.

Parnato said the chief, a former Army medic who spent 32 years in the CIA, said what he needed to in order to play ball with the CIA and get rewarded with a better job after retirement.

“There is a reason pride is a deadly sin,” Paranto said. “When you work in the agency and you’re around those people, they have a hard time admitting they’re wrong.”

 

Obama denied outright an urgent request to send more security to the embassy. He lied about what he knew, and his flying monkeys tried to squelch Fox News investigative reporting surrounding the attack.

The intelligence community identified the terrorists within 24 hours. Two days after the attack, Hillary Clinton  had a meltdown at a Congressman over the point that it was indeed Al Qaeda.

A run down of Hillary’s bullshit:

“What difference does it make?

“Benghazi security wasn’t my problem”.

Hillary blamed ‘lack of funding’ and amnesia.

An innocent filmmaker, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, was used as a scapegoat for Obama and Hillary’s coverup. As a matter of fact, the attack was still underway when Hillary and the White House concocted a “blame the video” strategy, in an attempt to offset the fallout from their stupidity and incompetence.  She knew the narrative was a lie but she pushed it anyway.

Hillary’s State Department spent months blowing off Ambassador Stevens’ repeated requests for extra security and his concerns over the growing terrorist violence in the area.

Hillary scrubbed the Benghazi talking points and hid incriminating documents.

Here’s a link to a video of Fox News reporter Bret Baier reading (at about 06:45 into the video) the emails from Ambassador Stevens to the State Department, one of which is just 4 hours prior to the attack. Each one was a desperate plea for more security in the face of growing terrorist violence in the area.

Obama and Hillary couldn’t have cared less from the first sign of trouble to the horrible aftermath.

Bottom line: Obama and Hillary’s depraved indifference and incompetence, played a large part in the deaths of the Americans at the Benghazi consulate.
