Newly disclosed CIA intel disputes White House account of Libyan attack

The CIA has now gone public with intelligence it possessed 24 hours after the deadly Libyan terrorist attacks that left a U.S. ambassador and three other diplomats dead. On Friday the agency disclosed to reporters that it had informed the administration in Washington the day after the attacks that it had evidence the attacks were perpetrated by terrorist militants and not a spontaneous mob protesting an anti-Muslim film.

According to the CIA there was no mob, no protest, and no mention of the film on the ground in Libya.

Yet President Obama, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney were quick to lay the blame for the massacre on the film.

This Little Blog Had a Birthday

I forgot to mention that this little blog recently had a birthday. No big deal, but still, it is a milestone.

Six years ago I began this venture not intending to do anything big with it. I just sat down and began to write. At first my readers were very few in number-- 50 or 100 was considered an excellent day, and most of the time it was much lower than that.

And then I happened across a new blog that had been started in support of the Duke University Lacrosse players who were accused of raping a black woman in Durham, N.C. The story caught my attention due to the fact that before any evidence was presented, the liberals in Durham had already tried the case in the press and proclaimed them guilty.

But a group of students and professors at Duke, along with a few writers and cartoonists, came together to form a minority opinion, disturbed by the fact that not only did the facts fail to add up but it appeared that the young students were being railroaded to jail as political scapegoats. They started a blog where they posted their views, and their investigation into the matter.

Thus, I wrote a story about the controversy and the inherent reverse racism at Duke, in the N.C. Democratic Party, and in the local state's attorney's office. That blog picked up on my story and linked to it, and suddenly I was getting 150-200 readers per day. That one act of kindness by the writers on that blog placed me in a position to gain some traction.

And by the way the students were found to be innocent of all charges, the accuser was exposed as a fraud, and the local state's attorney was punished for overt corruption.

In the year or two that followed, readership slowly grew here. And now, readership over the past two years has averaged 500-600 per day--nowhere near the top in terms of popularity, but still, better than most.

I noted also today that my total readership since late 2006 stands at 1.1 million--1,133,055.

Thank you for visiting these pages day after day. It's great to know that this little blog has picked up a small but intensely loyal following.

I am nowhere near finished. I have much more I want to say.

I was speaking at a church recently, and I quipped that now, for the first time in my life, I have to watch the time carefully because I tend to go way over my allotted time. I don't use notes, but still I seem to have much more to say now than I did when I was much younger. One person in the congregation responded by saying, "Well, hopefully you know much more now than you did back then." That's true, although some would say that all these things I now know, which I did not know before, are not true.

I would hope that most if not all of what I have learned through the years is, indeed, true.

CNN rallies reporters to support Crowley under cloud of suspicion

An internal memo at CNN surfaced yesterday showing that the network is secretly rallying support for debate moderator Candy Crowley in light of the firestorm of controversy surrounding her apparent attempt to aid and abet President Obama in propagating a falsehood concerning the Libyan massacre.

The memo states that Crowley did a "superb job" in moderating the debate and encourages her colleagues to congratulate her for it.

Kurt Hofmann comments on the statement made by Obama concerning "cheap handguns." Make no mistake about it, my friends, this regime would ban all guns if it could get away with it.

WRSA declares that we should leave our cell phones at home when we go out. The Leviathans are tracking us with such gadgets.

The War on Guns provides an update on Mike Vanderboegh's continuing health struggles.

David Codrea has a rather interesting article involving the National Shooting Sports Foundation and the National Gun Rights Examiner column.

Pamela Geller reports the explosive story that United Nations schools for "Palestinians" conveniently leave out the Holocaust in their history courses due to the fact that "it deflects focus from the main enemy Israel." Why, again, are we continuing to allow this sham, fraud, and threat to human liberty known as the United Nations to operate on American soil????

Brigid says that her dog presents some valuable lessons regarding socialism.

Alphecca notes that at least one pundit thinks that Obama's slip in talking about gun control in the debate will cost him the election.

Way Up North has some "thoughts for Thursday" from the great state of Alaska.

Market Guru Karl Denninger reports that although it may have been a "mistake" to issue an early release of Google's earnings statement today, the report itself is no fluke. It's true. There are gargantuan problems with Google, and he says that the very same thing will happen to Facebook. Take a look for his reasons why.

Stand Up America posts all the latest on the foiled terrorist attack yesterday at the Federal Reserve Bank, along with other various terrorist plots that have been discovered.

Crowley debate flap broadens into potential scandal

In the aftermath of what many political observers say was the worst presidential debate in U.S. history, more evidence has emerged that the flap over Candy Crowley's performance as moderator is becoming a full blown scandal as more Americans review the video and the transcripts from the debate.

The mainstream media in one accord proclaimed Obama the winner of the debate. But opinion polls of citizens appear to contradict that assessment...

The 2A News Roundup--Top Ten for Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012

All guns and politics from the best gun rights and liberty bloggers on the Internet.

Mike McCarville has a must-read entitled, "I'm tired of being told..." Read it all.

Nicki shares some hard-hitting thoughts on last night's presidential debate.

The New York Liberty Report has the explosive story on a disabled war vet who was labeled as a "terrorist" for questioning the cost of surveillance cameras law enforcement agencies are using across the country. Well, hell. I think we are becoming a Commie-Nazi police state. Does that make me a terrorist too????  Sheesh. This stuff is getting wayyyyyy out of hand.

David Codrea highlights, once again, some NRA shenanigans in endorsing candidates who oppose human liberty just as long as they support NRA-backed gun bills. A sham. And a disgrace.

Every Blade of Grass informs us of something frightening and absolutely vital for us to know--the federal government has graduated its first class of "homeland youths." You must see this.

Traction Control did some fact checking of his own concerning Obama and the auto industry, and the Prez, you know, Dumbo, has done some unconscionable things in that regard.

Monitors catch debate moderators giving more time to Obama-Biden

After three nationally televised debates, two between President Obama and Gov. Mitt Romney and one between Vice President Biden and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, media watchdogs who monitor the time given to the candidates now have proof that debate moderators are granting more time to the Democrats than Republicans.

In each of the three debates, Obama and Biden have had significantly more time to answer questions than Romney and Ryan. The unfairness of the time split raises once again the question as to the legitimacy of this year's presidential debates, given that they are being moderated by members of the mainstream media who have a documented history of showing blatant bias in favor of Obama and the Democrats and against Romney and the Republicans.

Crowley: 'Gov. Romney, sit down'

Ahead of tonight's presidential debate in New York, conservatives were quick to note that CNN's Candy Crowley had already disqualified herself as a moderator by suggesting that the choice of Paul Ryan as Romney's running mate was a poor choice and that is represented a "death wish."

Crowley may have given conservatives more fodder for the criticism this evening. Both men interrupted each other on numerous occasions, but Crowley appeared disallow follow up answers from Romney more than from Obama.

The NRA presents an excellent interview with fired ATF whistleblower Vince Cefalu.

Media mischief surfaces prior to Tuesday debate

As the 2012 presidential campaign enters its final phase just weeks before the November general elections, the mainstream media has been the focus of attention and criticism from those who monitor the fairness of the press.

Today the criticism has been rekindled as media mischief has surfaced ahead of Tuesday evening's debate between President Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Candy Crowley of CNN is the designated moderator of tomorrow night's debate. But Crowley has a history of overt bias. In this case, however, her recent statements have raised the protests of both campaigns.

Administration plays confusing blame game with Libya

A confusing array of contradictions concerning the murders of four Americans, one of which was a U.S. ambassador, was made worse by Vice President Joe Biden's remarks during the debate with Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan Thursday evening.

Today the confusion only worsened yet again when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters that her agency was not the source of misinformation concerning the attacks, charging instead that the White House was the source of the false mantra that the murders were spurred by an anti-Muslim film made in the  United States.
