Lying Bastards!

I don’t know about you, but I am at my wits end trying to figure out why the mainstream media won’t cover the Benghazi killings!

We have an Ambassador of the United States come under siege and our fearless leader in the White House does nothing? After the fact, no one in the mainstream media seemed interested in what happened and it continues today. Why?

We are watching the United States of America become a laughing stock throughout the world. It’s because our so-called, national media is coddling a Commander in Chief who is nothing but!

Hurricane Sandy is the Mainstream Media’s Dream!

Don’t get me wrong. I have friends on the East Coast that are in the path of this so-called Frankenstorm. We want to make sure that they’re safe and sound as the storm comes ashore.

However, it appears to me that the mainstream media is going overboard in its coverage of this event. How better to deflect from the issue of Benghazi than by covering a storm. A storm!

Well, I tell you what. There’s going to be a huge storm come Election Day!

William L. Garvin: ‘Duty, Honor, Country’

“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13

On February 24, 1967, the United States Congress declared me to be “an officer and a gentleman” and commissioned me as a second lieutenant in the Armor Branch of the United States Army. During the previous year in Basic Training, Advanced Armor Training, and Officer Candidate School, I learned a number of lessons that have remained constant over my life. I always check my “gig line” when getting dressed, my shoes are always shined, and what hair I have left is closely cropped. My wife finds it somewhat humorous that I still fold my socks and underwear the way I was taught by Uncle Sam. When making our bed, the sheets get a precise forty-five degree angle on the military tuck.

More importantly, I learned the moral principles of military leadership were duty, honor, and country. My tactical officers insured, in their own unique way, that I understood and would never forget that the men I would soon command were a “sacred trust.” Today I teach command and leadership principles to new lieutenants in the California Police Management program. I do my best to reinforce in them that same unshakeable belief –the men and women they command are an irrevocable “sacred trust.” It is with a great deal of sadness that I see those principles being violated at the highest level of our government.

This is an excellent post and I reprint it here by express permission of ScottOnCapeCod’s Weblog.

About the two Navy Seals killed in Libya:

Quite an astounding tribute to the courage and bravery of the two former Navy Seals that went to the aid of Ambassador Stevens and Embassy staff. Courageous!

Recently I was teaching a class in my church on the biblical character, Joshua. You remember him – he’s the one who took over for Moses to lead the Israelites into the Promised Land. God made several promises to Joshua in the opening verses of this book of the Bible named after him. Three times God instructs Joshua to “be strong and courageous.” In fact, one of those times God instructed him to be “very courageous.” The road ahead was a tough one and Joshua would need to be up to the task.
The news has been full of the attacks on our embassies throughout the Muslim world, and in particular, the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others in Benghazi , Libya . However, apart from the shameful amount of disinformation willingly distributed by the Main Stream Media and the current administration, there’s a little known story of incredible bravery, heroics, and courage that should be the top story of every news agency across the fruited plain.

Polls, Polls and More Polls

Poll watching is a major past-time amongst the lamestream media. Up until a few weeks ago, most national pollsters (Rasmussen being the main exception, as I’ll explain in a bit) based their polling on “registered” voters, the largest potential population of voters. What is more telling, however, is the population of “likely” voters. These voters have shown a pattern of participating in the majority of past elections, including primaries. Rasmussen has consistently polled likely voters. Gallup, on the other hand, has been promoting polls of registered voters up until a few weeks ago. They’ve recently shifted to likely voters.

Here are Rasmussen’s polling results, which are based on a three-day, rolling average.

On the other hand, here are Gallup’s results for registered voters, which we’ve been seeing over the last several months.

Gene’s Nickle: Economic Collapse

During the second presidential debate, there was a short exchange about energy production in the US. To my mind, it shows how lacking in thought or conniving our current president is.

Governor Romney commented on the current energy strategy, if there is one:

“The proof of whether a strategy is working or not is what the price is that you’re paying at the pump. If you’re paying less than you paid a year or two ago, why, then, the strategy is working. But you’re paying more. When the president took office, the price of gasoline here in Nassau County was about $1.86 a gallon. Now, it’s $4.00 a gallon.”

I happen to agree with this assessment. The cost of gasoline affects everything we do: industry, heating our homes, transportation, the price of food and consumer goods, the vacations we take, the number of school pageants we enjoy, and the Little League games we can attend.

However, the President’s take was quite a bit different (emphasis mine):
