Via Patricia Heaton:
There was no “video protest” as team Obama said repeatedly in multiple places. That was an outright lie, no doubt to protect His Highness B. Hussein Obama and his election chances in November.
Democrats and their willing accomplices in the media pushed a false story then, and are dutifully ignoring the real story now.
The real story – Americans are dead, this administration dropped the ball, and then lied to you, their employer, to save their own jobs.
Now, today at the Congressional hearings, Democrats still want to obfuscate and tell you it’s nothing but politics:
@erickbrockway: Via @SooperMexican GOP is at a hearing investigating Al-Qaeda attacks on #benghazi, Dems are at same hearing investigating attacks on Obama.

This is the level of insanity we’re sinking to
As Cassy says:
Why doesn’t she just go shit on each grave in that cemetary while she’s at it? Stupid bitch.
I think a nice spot in a landfill should be appropriate. That’s just me.
This is one second in time from one brush fire in Ventura County, California:
Looks like more than all the car’s exhaust in Los Angeles for the last year to me.
These fires are happening every day somewhere in the world. As far as contributions to carbon in the atmosphere, what are the percentages or the ratio, man/nature?
Out of the entire atmospheric makeup, only one to two percent is made up of greenhouse gases with the majority being nitrogen (about 78 percent) and oxygen (about 21 percent). Of that two percent, “planet-killing” carbon dioxide comprises only 3.62 percent while water vapor encompasses 95 percent. And of the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, humans cause only 3.4 percent of annual CO2 emissions. What does this all boil down to? As shown by the accompanying graph, not very much.
Indeed, anthropogenic effects are real but carbon is such a small portion of the natural cycle, and let’s not forget both the sun and carbon are needed for natural cycles that are good for the earth such as photosynthesis—the process by which plants turn sunlight, water and carbon dioxide into carbohydrates.

How much is it costing us to chase this rabbit down its hole?
Perhaps the most alarming part is the price tag associated with attempting to reduce such a small part of the atmosphere and something we really cannot control. Our analysis shows the cumulative GDP losses for 2010 to 2029 approach $7 trillion. Single-year losses exceed $600 billion in 2029, more than $5,000 per house¬hold. Job losses are expected to exceed 800,000 in some years, and exceed at least 500,000 from 2015 through 2026. It is important to note that these are net job losses, after any jobs created by compliance with the regulations–so-called green jobs–are taken into account. In total, the “climate revenue” (read: energy tax) could approach two trillion over eight years. Keep in mind, this is all for negligible environmental benefits.
The science behind global warming is anything but conclusive. Many leading climatologists conclude that climate models aren’t incredibly accurate and even have different opinions (for instance whether it is the sun or oceanic changes) as to what the dominant causes are of global warming and cooling.
And dissenting opinion? The science is far from settled, but don’t tell that to a liberal:
Nevertheless, it’s easy to pretend the science on global warming is conclusive when environmentalist extremists suppress dissenting opinions. Economist Walter Williams provides a few examples and draws an interesting parallel:
There’s a much more important issue that poses an even greater danger to mankind. That’s the effort by environmentalists to suppress disagreement with their view. According to a March 11 article in London’s Sunday Telegraph, Timothy Ball, a former climatology professor at the University of Winnipeg in Canada, has received five death threats since he started questioning whether man was affecting climate change. Richard Lindzen, professor of Atmospheric Science at MIT, said, “Scientists who dissent from the alarmism have seen their funds disappear, their work derided, and themselves labeled as industry stooges.” Nigel Calder, a former editor of New Scientist, said, “Governments are trying to achieve unanimity by stifling any scientist who disagrees. Einstein could not have got funding under the present system.”
Suppressing dissent is nothing new. Italian cosmologist Giordano Bruno taught that stars were at different distances from each other surrounded by limitless territory. He was imprisoned in 1592, and eight years later he was tried as a heretic and burned at the stake. Because he disagreed that the Earth was the center of the universe, Galileo was ordered to stand trial on suspicion of heresy in 1633. Under the threat of torture, he recanted and was placed under house arrest for the rest of his life.”

As Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal asks, have these people lost their minds?
Yes, but we’re worse mentally for sending them to DC:
Congressional leaders in both parties are engaged in high-level, confidential talks about exempting lawmakers and Capitol Hill aides from the insurance exchanges they are mandated to join as part of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, sources in both parties said.
The talks — which involve Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), the Obama administration and other top lawmakers — are extraordinarily sensitive, with both sides acutely aware of the potential for political fallout from giving carve-outs from the hugely controversial law to 535 lawmakers and thousands of their aides. Discussions have stretched out for months, sources said.
Fine to force the rest of America to swallow this, but now that it will affect them and their workers, there’s outrage? Where was the outrage three years ago when they were passing Obamacare? More important, what are these lawmakers going to do about it?
Even though this maggot blew up a child and two others, killed a cop, maimed hundreds, still, the good guys struggle to save this guy’s life.
