It must be all a lie because the Obama Administration tells us that everything is tranquil.
...and this one happened on Mr. Secretary John Ketchup's State Department watch.
I wonder if he's consulted Hillary about any emails being sent back and forth regarding concerns about the security at the Consulate?

I’d show up with a pit bull dog (from the local pet rescue, of course), several compressed-air stadium horns, and some railroad flares. Party!
Thank you Senator Grahmnesty for informing us that what you and John McCain have been a part of and help create is now a threat to us..
That is very considerate of you to take us into account now that you intent to run for president..
Did you get aproval to run for president from your progressive liberal buddies Mr. Grahmnesty?
Ok you well informed senator,
Why did the Founding Fathers put the 2nd Amendment in the Bill Of Rights?
perfectly stated. tlc
and if we had an informed electorate, the varied and endless attacks on IIA (and increasingly on IA) would meet immediate and crushing resistance, those advocating such 'changes' immediately dismissed.
Lindsey i think conveniently forgets that IIA and the rest of the Bill of Rights were put into place BY an informed electorate with the express hope that the electorate remain free and well informed. You cannot guarantee that freedom to be informed without the protections. Sadly, 'progressivism' (which will someday be seen for the euphemism it is) is proving you CAN erode those protections to the point that an elite few can dilute the electorate into a passive pablum fed led by the nose herd of sheeple.
Politicians know that 2A is there so that they can be removed from office in a horizontal fashion if need be. They don't like that "checks" part of the checks and balances, especially if that check is painful.
An informed electorate is Lindsey Graham's worst enemy.
We can't always be informed but we must never be infringed upon...
You know that's right.
You are correct term limits. If we had an informed electorate I would be president.
South Carolina should hang their heads in shame for inflicting this douchebag on the rest of us.. Arizona should do the same for their own douchebag they sent to the Senate.
If we had a true Constitutional Republic and 'informed electorate', we'd already have term limits on those in Congress, as well as our courts.
We'd have a standing firm value of Capital Punishment, which put a foundation of shame, restitution and discipline that sent a clear message to those inside America and coming here. Murderers, rapists, molesters, pedophiles, kidnappers and terrorists that are convicted would have ONLY day of conviction death sentences with simple firing squads.
We would also make sure no laws or Constitution, other than America's foundation was allowed..and under the 'Oath of Citizenship' that is just commonsense we no longer remember or abide by under taking away Equal Justice...and substituting instead 'Social (ism) Justice' and 'Political Correctness' that has infiltrated our courts, schools/education & even political system.
I would also put on the firing squads, mandatory equal amount sexes for the executions in all Capital Punishment cases, for the reason that those of radical Islamic belief hold that being killed by a woman (their defining as 'vessel for expansion of radical Islam, a tool of sexual desires ages, under Sharia Law as young as 5 years old, and having no rights, just cattle in worth), would not martyr them to heaven, but send them to hell. Think about all the radicals living here that would leave, if we placed that foundation back in place...but it won't happen unless we force it back in place, state by state.
Lindsey Graham is one of those Republicans, that if he ever is not reelected he will come back as a Democrat. Like Charlie Chriss the former Governor of Florida did. Graham has bent over for the Democrats so many times making deals he has solved his hemorrhoid problem.
Agreed term, there's plenty of losers who wouldn't be in office today if we had an informed electorate. That's where the LSM comes in.
If we had an informed electorate, term limits would be unnecessary. The constitution does not need to be changed. The hearts and minds of the electorate is what needs changing. Face it folks, our republic is deteriorating. It has happened to every government that has existed. Why do you ask? While government is a thing that God told Moses to form to help him to manage the Israelites, government is something that has been and continues to be corruptible and co-opted by the forces of evil. We have had "statesmen" that have endeavored to "tweak": the constitution because they want it to do something it was never intended to do. The federal government was never intended to be so strong. Federal, state, and local government were only supposed to retain enumerated powers, all else passing to the people. Why enumerated? So the electorate can see what the government is trying to take on so that the electorate can dial back that effort. Our three branches of government have stripped that transparency away and government powers are no longer considered enumerated and that has shifted to enumerating personal liberty, contrary to what the constitution states. The second amendment is a personal liberty check and balance. During the war of 1812, there was a school in New York.
It's pretty easy to force even an informed electorate to do the bidding of a dictator if that electorate can't ultimately resort to force. And what's more, is that despotic regimes that control this way also tend to use their dictatorial control to ensure that the electorate is uninformed. Nice try Lindsey, but even an informed electorate depends on the 2nd, and would be helpless even if it managed to exist without the 2nd.
term limits -
All other comments in this thread (right now 145 including mine) are rendered moot by your perfect, one sentence assessment of Grahamnesty's bone-headed attempt at being clever. Well done.
If we had a really informed electorate they would vote based on rational criteria. Not perceived ideology, not on perceived religious beliefs and certainly not based on misinformation and propaganda from PACs and special interest groups. At this point the greatest threat to our democracy are the lobbyists and PACs who influence the electorate about anything the individuals pay them want them to. It is rather encouraging to see Graham call out Cruz for the wingnut he is.
An informed electorate would require HONESTY by the PRESS, CONGRESS and the PRESIDENT. Seeing how we have no honesty in any of these categories, we will never have an informed electorate.
These politicians are all alike. They say what sounds good, but their intentions or positions are the exact opposite. A well informed electorate would have canned Graham some time ago.
Even an informed electorate can not protect us from politicians that continually lie to the constituancy to get elected and then do what ever they feel like doing after the fact.
The informed electorate wants TERM LIMITS.... The crook politicians, who crave power, will not pass such a law as it would adversely affect themselves. Hence, our need for the Second Ammendment! These men, and women, in government can NOT BE TRUSTED to look out for our best intersest.... Only there own!!!
OUTSIDE voice: “An informed electorate is a better check against governmental tyranny than the Second Amendment.”
INSIDE voice: “And as long as people like me are in power and control the information you hear, then I can make you believe anything I want you to. Besides, guns scare me, so I need to make you think they’re not that important. And I agree that climate change is real and threatens our economy and national security. We need to raise taxes to get our nation out of debt. Dammit…I think I said those last two out loud. I did, didn’t I? Dammit, dammit, dammit. I hate truth.”
NO WAY IN HELL... not now not ever, not for any reason, even to stop Hillary. I despise this pseudo INTERLOPER, this faux Southerner, this pansy. He announced in his ARROGANCE that he would be PRESIDENT before he ever won his first Senate Seat. Then he won it and glommed onto that wastrel JOHN MCCAIN... arrogant, self-centered, obnoxious, sleazy, juvenile liar...he is Hollywood Casting's version of a politician. He and BUSH are the same types. I'll give up on America if they
get elected instead of the person who can save USA (CRUZ) (RUBIO OR PAUL) .... As a man, he makes my skin crawl...Lindsey Graham is a passive aggressive bully!!
An informed electorate would never vote to give up any of their rights including the 2nd Amendment. We know that the 2nd Amendment is an escape hatch for when government stops working for the people and works against the people to enslave them. #DefundtheGOP
No Lindsey, a well armed electorate is the best defense to tyranny. If you knew anything about how this country was founded you wouldn't even need to be told that. It would be common sense.
Our founders used guns to win freedom and knew full well guns would be required to keep freedom.
Will our guns protect us from the US military if the government uses it against us? Probably not, but we'll have a better chance than with sticks and stones.
Absolutely. Such an ignorant response. An uninformed electorate IS the reason for the 2nd amendment, in case the government become tyrannical because of an uninformed electorate, some of which, as you said, voted for Graham and Obama. That's exactly why we need our guns. Geese Louise. I hope he pays for this at the voting booth.
Again Graham shows us why he is not ready for prime time. Next!
Both are just as necessary, Sen Grahamnesty! Both are indispensable!
“An informed electorate is a better check against governmental tyranny than the Second Amendment”, because an informed electorate understands exactly why we needed to have a Second Amendment in the first place, to make short work of removing loons like Lindseed Graham when they don't want to leave the power behind.
Such rash statements from the idiot Senator Lindsey Graham don’t bode well for his future campaigns...and you’re outta there Lindsaaaay.
All about marketing, time to think before speaking, time to focus on the little things like logo, individual words, how to answer trap questions without 80% of America shutting us out the second we bring up the issue and say were conservative. Here's how I would answer, I'm just a 26 year old, "The second amendment is necessary, it is necessary because our gun laws haven't stopped illegal guns which make up (not gonna look it up but its gotta be around) 99% of gun crimes. If we had no guns we wouldn't need a second amendment, so maybe we need to reevaluate why those laws don't work, but until then how about that Christian Genocide and the Economy?"

It is not uncommon to see bull sharks and hammerheads in FL canals. And, I don’t think it is because of chumming. In my ‘hood, there are schools of fish that hide around the bridges. The dolphins and sharks chase them and the fish go into the canals. The dolphins/sharks follow. I see dolphins regularly – sharks rarely.

I’m sure the forked-tongue SquattingSqaw Warren (“I’m not running”) is ready to roll as soon as Hillary is proven to be un-electable. And, she’s a real dimocrat!
I figure Hillary will have a medical problem when her poll number plunge and the DNC will send in Warren.
That kind of common-sense thinking will get you banned from The Blaze! Much better to fantasize about Muslim terrorists training in some part of the Mexican desert that somehow is mysteriously invisible to drones, helicopters, spy planes, satellites, or the naked eye.

Maybe this tragedy will inspire a new song.
Fire, tire fire… burnin’ ring of tire. Or, just re-make the Johnny Cash song.
