Three unforgettable lies by Presidents but Obama’s is the most dangerous one of all.
- Richard Nixon: “I am not a crook.”
- Bill Clinton: “I did not have sex with that woman.”
- Barrack Obama: “I said that this was an act of terror.”
President Barack Obama “point-blank lied” “I think the president indicted himself” on the Libya issue, Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee said. “He point-blank lied on Libya. He never called it a terrorist attack. At the end of the speech in the Rose Garden, he said that ‘Acts of terror won’t shake the nation,’ then he went on seven times and talked about the fact that this thing was from a YouTube video.
If you come away with nothing from this blog at least get this: Something happened last night that is a first in American history. A moderator of a presidential debate stepped in at a key moment to protect Obama from the impact of a lie. A lie so heinous, that in any other universe, it would end his chances for reelection. Candy Crowley’s actions went way beyond bias. She was literally a willing partner in a mass manipulation of the facts.
I told you the night before the debate that I felt troubled in the Spirit. I knew that there was going to be some kind of trick. I am certain that this is the very thing that I sensed was coming.
Obama lied about his remarks in the Rose Garden on September 12th. This is crucial because it should be the nail in the coffin of his campaign. He refused to call the attack an act of terror for some very shameful reasons. Read on.
Obama cannot express the natural outrage of a true American President. For the first time since 1979 an American Ambassador has been assassinated! Moreover, he was assassinated on of all days, September 11th. Even when he had the chance to address the nation he condemned a video before he condemned the terrorists!
It gets worse. Instead of calling for emergency action over an act of war on American soil, he leaves for Las Vegas to raise money for his campaign. How could he do this without fear of a backlash? Because he knew that the media would shield him from any such backlash.
It just gets even worse. He lied when he said there was faulty intelligence. He lied when he said they needed an ongoing investigation. The State Department was watching the attack on a live feed in real time! The attack went on for 8 hours! They saw that there was no mob rioting over a video. They could see that weapons and tactics were in play that were clearly preplanned and the work of Al Qaeda.
Can it get any worse? Yes. He instructs Susan Rice, the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., to keep the charade going, and say to the public that the attack was because of the video. Obama and Clinton make a commercial for Pakistani T. V., apologizing for the video. Jay Carney tells the press corps that is all about the video. Obama appears on The View and throws Hillary Clinton under the bus. Joy Behar asks, “was this a terrorist act? Your Secretary of State now says it was, what do you say?” His reply, to his everlasting shame, “we are still doing an investigation.”
Two weeks pass. He still shows no outrage over the assassination. No plan to get those responsible. And then the final infamy: an act so jaw dropping outrageous that there are no words. He stands there and says, in front of millions that from the very beginning, “I said, this was an act of terror.”
Like a ref in a fixed fight, Crowley laid low as long as she could. When she saw the knockout punch coming from Romney, she jumped in, yet again, to save the anointed one. The lie lives on. And that is what makes this lie so dangerous. In the past, the press worked to expose lies, now they are helping to cover them up.
