Whistleblowing by Design

Well – it looks like it was all by design. Throughout his entire presidency, Obama and his most transparent administration of all time has had it out for whistleblowers.

In March, 2015, the Guardian posted an article stating that, “Since Barack Obama entered the White House in 2009, his government has waged a war against whistleblowers and official leakers. On his watch, there have been eight prosecutions under the 1917 Espionage Act – more than double those under all previous presidents combined.”

However, they also went on to explain that it’s not like Obama prosecuted all leakers. Those “leaks” from high-level officials like Leon Panetta, John Brennan or even New York Times reporter, David Sanger, were all given a pass.

Bottom line – if you were favored by Obama and the leak would make the President look good, no harm would come to you.

But then in January, a week prior to Trump’s inauguration, it seemed everything changed. The Washington Times reported that, “President Barack Obama— with about a week left in his presidency — has all of a sudden shown interest in protecting government whistleblowers and the inspector general community.” read more

Keep Your Eye on the Bouncing Benghazi Ball

Let’s not lose focus on the Benghazigate scandal.

To recap – Benghazi is not a singular event. It’s not just about the death of the ambassador and three others. It’s not just about why help was not sent or even where Obama was all that time.

Although these are important, the real scandal is what was going on in Benghazi and why was ambassador Stevens there in the first place and with very little security?

I believe, as do others smarter than me, that Stevens was running guns from Libya, through Turkey and to the “Rebels” in Syria. Others and I have contended this from the beginning. To clarify, most of the “Rebels” have turned out to be Al Qaeda or affiliated terrorist groups.

I also reported early on that we “conspiracy theorists” thought that Stevens was trying to possibly retrieve some of the weapons through Benghazi and Al Qaeda or a subgroup set him up and took him out.

Now we learn from an exclusive PJ Media report by Roger Simon that some very damning evidence may be revealed soon.

Keep in mind that the following reports are not official and may not turn out to be completely accurate.

It appears as if more whistleblowers may come forward to enlighten us further regarding the real scandal – why Stevens was in Benghazi. Benghazi as you may or may not know, was not a good place to just hang around, but evidently a good place to procure weapons.

It is being said that these whistleblowers will say that Stevens was in Benghazi to buyback Stinger missiles from Al Qaeda. Stinger missiles that are capable of downing military or civilian aircraft. Not the weapons you want in the hands of terrorists.

If reports are correct, they will also claim that the gunrunning was not being done through the CIA, but Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

It will be said the CIA did not want to provide these weapons to the terrorists but apparently Hillary Clinton personally authorized it.

So if Hillary new all about this operation guess who else had to have known? You got it, the King himself.

The whistleblowers apparently contend that the CIA director David Petraeus’ affair was leaked to silence him.

There are also reports that Gen. Carter Ham, head of AFRICOM (U.S. Africa command) had “special ops” teams that could have been in Benghazi in very short order. The claim is that he was ordered by the White House not to send them. When he decided to disobey the order, it is reported that his second in command was ordered by the White House to threaten him with removal.

You may ask if these whistleblowers will soon come forward, why speak to PJ media ahead of any possible public testimony?

Is it possible that they fear serious retribution ahead of the testimony? Might some tragedy befall them prior to it? Could be.

Frankly, the more we learn of this thuggish administration, anything is possible.

And that brings us back to our dear president who was apparently AWOL throughout this whole ordeal.

Remember, this happened on September 11, before the presidential election. One would think it important to show a sitting president as a strong and involved Commander-in-Chief.

Yet the then Sec-Def, Leon Panetta, publicly stated that he had but one meeting with Obama and didn’t see or hear from him again. Curious? Not really.

Even if just some of these assertions are true, Obama must be seen to be as far away from this thing as possible. He could not be in the situation room. He could in no way be seen to have his fingerprints on this. He had to be insulated. But if Hillary knew, he knew.

It is my belief that these four men were sacrificed to cover-up the gunrunning and buyback operations. My guess is that there was evidence at that location that could be discovered and when the “op” went bad, they pulled the plug and abandoned the SEALs and the ambassador.

For the good of the country, I sure hope we’re wrong.

Benghazi Smear

Benghazi Whistleblowers

 

It’s on. As the White House grapples with a growing backlash over its Libya lies and lapses, President Obama’s apologists are gearing up for battle. Put on your hip-waders. Grab those tar buckets. Get ready for Operation Smear Benghazi Whistleblowers.

Capitol Hill hearings this Wednesday on the deadly 9/11 consulate attack by jihadists will feature three compelling witnesses, all State Department veterans: Gregory N. Hicks, deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya and highest-ranking U.S. diplomat in the country at the time of the Benghazi jihad attacks; Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine who now serves as deputy coordinator for operations in the agency’s Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the top security officer in Libya.

Nordstrom first testified last fall about how State Department brass spurned his requests for increased security at the compound. Hicks and Thompson are coming forward publicly for the first time this week with more damning evidence contradicting Team Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s claims about the administration’s response the night of the attack and in the ensuing months of cover-ups.

According to the House Oversight Committee, Hicks reportedly will refute Team Obama’s claims that nobody was told to stand down and that all military resources available were used in the rescue efforts. As Special Forces prepared to fly from Tripoli to Benghazi to save lives during the attacks, Hicks says the team received a phone call from the U.S. Special Operations Command Africa telling them “you can’t go” and that the decision was “purely political.”

The State Department press office already has accused Victoria Toensing, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers, of “lying” about administration pressure on her clients. Left-wing operatives funded by billionaire George Soros have taken to Twitter to mock reports of fear and intimidation among the new witnesses. White House press secretary Jay Carney continues to sing “Long, Long Ago” and deny all wrongdoing.
