    …cont’d…
    The Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST) has a very specific mission which entails providing tactical support to our diplomatic personnel overseas in the event of an emergency. They do not need to be told what to do, they only need to be told where to go. It is their mission, just as the Secret Service’s mission is to intervene to save the President, to respond to overseas emergencies. Someone ordered them NOT to respond. The fact that the situation was dangerous is NOT a reason for them not to respond, the danger factor is a significant component of their job description just as it is with the Secret Service. Instead of answering the burning question “Who told FEST to stand down?” the President, again, returned to the lie that Congressional budget cuts were to blame for this, despite his own State Department representative (Dep. Assistant Secretary Charlene Lamb, 10/10/12) unequivocally stating that the budget had NOTHING to do with this. This is an affront & a disgrace to the sacrifice of the four men in Benghazi who died heroically for our flag.

    The dignity of the office has been shattered & if this makes you want to “Blame Bush” you are beyond help. I have my own issues with many of the decisions of the Republican Party & former President Bush, but he is not the President now & was not the one who decided to assault the honor of the dedicated individuals who would proudly die in service to the office of the President of the United States

    The Undignified Presidency:

    While serving as a special agent with the Secret Service I proudly placed myself in danger many times to allow three Presidents to execute their duties free from intimidation. Neither I nor any agent I worked with expected any accolades for this. It was our duty & we fulfilled it, end of story.

    Having stated that, the President has a duty as well. He has a duty to run the country in a dignified manner worthy of the office. His history of blame is clear, but this is a trait common to many Presidents. It is his history of placing blame on those who are willing to sacrifice their lives for him that is undignified & can no longer be tolerated.

    When the politics of the sequester took an unexpected turn & backfired on the President, he attempted to blame the Secret Service for his decision to shut down the White House to public tours. I worked there, I saw the process. I does not work that way. The Secret Service does not make unilateral decisions & does not even control who is granted access, they only ensure those vetted by the White House meet security standards. Callously placing blame on an apolitical agency & the dedicated men & women who place themselves at great risk to serve you, is ethically incomprehensible.

    Worse, are the President’s intentionally misleading & increasingly undignified statements on Benghazi. Those men were left to die & this is not in dispute; The only question is, “Why?”…

    Good old Joe, like the great uncle with the Dementia who has to use a bib t eat during holiday dinner celebrations.

    I beg to differ. DIABETIC PEOPLE would get hurt if guns shot chocolate….too much sugar.

    Yes I read about the Beslan Massacre a couple of years ago, and watched videos. This does need to meet with the Mainstream to illustrate the mentality of terrorists.

    Great job, Kid!!! Keep up the strong work!! Meethinks that the town should as a group, led by this boy and his awesome family, contact a lawyer and fight for Constitutional rights, go for a precedent-setting case in favor of the Constitution. We need Conservative & Libertarian, civil rights loving, Constitution loving attorneys to organize and jump on each and every one of these kinds of cases.

    Geesh the Libs are getting more and more Moonbatty each and every day. You know the teacher is one of The Indoctrinated when she’s fighting AGAINST her own civil rights, probably believes this kid is going to pull the image of the gun from his shirt and kill people? Assault t-shirt screenprint? Kinda like the assault pop tart?. Something’s wrong with They The Sheeple fighting AGAINST their own and other citizens’ civil rights- mindless zombies.

    #WeThePeople stand against #TheyTheSheeple in protecting and preserving the civil rights of ourselves and the citizens. Let Freedom ring!

    It’s a Tiger Shark, very common in Hawaiian waters, and the gentleman is Kayak Fishing, my husband has kayak fished with his group. Most locals see sharks here and there and they are not nearly as scary as they’ve been portrayed. They really want to eat fish and not people. My son surfs several days a week, I standup paddleboard, kayak & canoe paddle & my husband kayak fishes & free dives. All you do when you see a shark is get out of the water for that day; many surfers & divers choose not to. I’ve been in the ocean year round all of my life and have never been bitten. There are several sharks that live in an area where I paddleboard, many people swim laps there, sayng hi to the sharks in their usual spots, and those sharks don’t bother the people; once a tour group overheard us saying “there’s our shark” in his usual spot and mass hysteria broke out with the tour group, while the shark was simply resting. You get far more chewed up if you don’t know the reef well and get thrown off of your kayak onto the reef- ouch. And yes, we are a family in the vast minority in Hawaii who are Conservatives.

    My first thought is- I’m glad Ben Shapiro is on our side. If he were on the other side, we’d be toast. HOORAH to Shapiro, he OWNED Piers Morgan. What a very brilliantly intelligent kid. It’s no wonder he’s the Editor at Large of Brietbart! Look at that Cerebrum go!

    Do these do do bird anti gun celebrities & politicians realize that they’re advertising loud and clear to would be murderous stalkers that they are unarmed? Sure many have armed guards, but not 100% of the time. I will never get Liberal Logic…ever.

    Obama DID keep his promise to tax only the rich….anyone who holds a job is considered “rich” in his definition. Can I tell the Libs “WE TOLD YA SO” yet?

    My parents lost two of their sons, one of my brothers who was a neonate who had sepsis and another of my brothers who was killed in a freak accident a few years ago. The suffering a parent does when their child dies before them lasts the rest of the parent’s lives- my parents have never been the same since my second brother’s feak accident. A child dying before a parent is the most unimaginable suffering for any mommy or daddy….and also forever devastating for the siblings of the lost child. Absolutely nothing can bring them back. My heart is broken for the mothers, fathers & families of these beautiful babies and the school staff who sacrificed their lives for their beloved students. To see their faces makes it all the more real. God bless our nation. Pray that God intervenes and turns around the moral decline in our country, let’s hope this is a wakeup call to those who’s agenda is a superficial, Godless, free for all Morality one.

    I’m a nurse for 16 years and have been going through training in preparation for Obamacare for the last year. One of our biggest training modules that was given to all of the nurses was Palliative Care. The goal of Palliative Care training per the trainers was to change the long historical mindset of American Healthcare that has been life-saving in focus. The new focus is that of Palliative, to teach that death is natural and inevitable and many people don’t have to be “saved”. This will cause a cost savings to hospitals & insurers. We were taught the huge expenses that are involved when we save lives, and cost savings when we allow people to die. Death is a natural part of life, it’s ok to let people die, more compassionate and less costly. I think of all of the many lives I’ve saved over my career, those who came to my unit with their famiies after their discharge to say “thank you for saving my life”, they and their families ever greatful and how they must embrace their lives and live it to the fullest since they cheated death. I also think that with the new Obamacare brainwashing, the same amount of people will be no more due to Palliative Training, the Hippocratic Oath will not be the same. This Obamacare outlook will chase away ethical, compassionate, thinking, intelligent healthcare providers. What a tangled web Obamacare weaves.

    I have never used Public Assistance EVER, but have been in situations where I qualified…single mom no child support, on chemotherapy, chronic genetic illness. I have worked for a living since I was 12 years old. Babysitting at 12, minimum wage jobs in my teens, worked through and paid my own way through college, Dean’s list in college. Ended up a single mom, no child support (my ex was able to secure under the table employment). While in college, disposable income for food was little to nothing, I had times when I pooled coins I found in my car an w/other friends to buy a case of Ramen on sale and divy that up among those of us who chipped in. I downgraded portion sizes to a half bag of ramen per meal. Other times bought a small bag of rice, small bag of beans and ate beans and rice 1-2 times a day for a month. One block of tofu for the week with small amounts of rice. During single parenthood, my electricity was turned off a few times, we took cold showers. I remember as a single mom having $27 dollars for the week for food, you really learn how to cook budget meals. Worked full time and overtime while on Chemo, hair falling out and all, to care for my kids, who never went a single day w/out medical insurance. Now that I have a great job, I’m vilified for being “rich”, only take home just over half of my income. It’s ridiculous that those of us who work hard and make huge sacrifices for the better of all are seen as vilains by those who are young, healthier and won

    Adding and adding welfare recipients is a slippery slope because they will never leave the dependence system, so the doles just continue to grow and can never decrease, much like the National Debt. That is unless politicians in DC have the guts to do the right thing, place “term limits” on receiving Welfare, make it a hardship-only system and not a lifestyle, etc. At this point the Welfare Monster is so big that there’s practically no way out but the cliff. No able bodied person on Welfare will voluntarily give it up. I say let the system crash, go off the cliff, let the S.H.T.F., let the Dems raise the Debt Ceiling, the dollar valuation fall, and the system go kaput. American Entitled are SO Entitled that the only way they will be willing to cut back on entitlement spending is if their EBT cards dont work anymore because the US is broke. I almost dont see any other way out of it at this point. Obama voters can vilify Freedom and passionately vote for Government Dependence because they have never been without freedom, they’re like spoiled children- gimme gimme gimme. They will never voluntarily work and sacrifice, nor take personal responsibility for the good of the country.
