UNBELIEVABLE! Barack Obama Fundraising Off Killing bin Laden

By Gary P Jackson

Let me get this straight, we can’t show photos of a dead bin Laden, because it might “inflame the Muslim street” but Obama can run out and immediately start raising money for his re-election campaign off of it?

Really?

Oh, and it gets better. He’s not just raising money, he’s acting like he pulled the trigger himself!

The Obama campaign has purchased the domain: www.gutsycall.com and when you click on it, it re-directs you to Obama’s campaign website. This is the height of douchebaggery, especially since Obama had to be FORCED to actually make that “gutsy call“!

Here’s a bit of Q&A courtesy of Pat Dollard: [emphasis mine]

Note:This update comes some 24 hours after our longtime Washington D.C. Insider first outlined shocking details of an Obama administration having been “overruled” by senior military and intelligence officials leading up to the successful attack against terrorist Osama Bin Laden. What follows is further clarification of Insider’s insights surrounding that event.

Q: You stated that President Obama was “overruled” by military/intelligence officials regarding the decision to send in military specialists into the Osama Bin Laden compound. Was that accurate?

A: I was told – in these exact terms, “we overruled him.” (Obama) I have since followed up and received further details on exactly what that meant, as well as the specifics of how Leon Panetta worked around the president’s “persistent hesitation to act.” There appears NOT to have been an outright overruling of any specific position by President Obama, simply because there was no specific position from the president to do so. President Obama was, in this case, as in all others, working as an absentee president.

I was correct in stating there had been a push to invade the compound for several weeks if not months, primarily led by Leon Panetta, Hillary Clinton, Robert Gates, David Petraeus, and Jim Clapper. The primary opposition to this plan originated from Valerie Jarrett, and it was her opposition that was enough to create uncertainty within President Obama. Obama would meet with various components of the pro-invasion faction, almost always with Jarrett present, and then often fail to indicate his position.

This situation continued for some time, though the division between Jarrett/Obama and the rest intensified more recently, most notably from Hillary Clinton. She was livid over the president’s failure to act, and her office began a campaign of anonymous leaks to the media indicating such. As for Jarrett, her concern rested on two primary fronts. One, that the military action could fail and harm the president’s already weakened standing with both the American public and the world. Second, that the attack would be viewed as an act of aggression against Muslims, and further destabilize conditions in the Middle East.

Q: What changed the president’s position and enabled the attack against Osama Bin Laden to proceed?

A: Nothing changed with the president’s opinion – he continued to avoid having one. Every time military and intelligence officials appeared to make progress in forming a position, Jarrett would intervene and the stalling would begin again. Hillary started the ball really rolling as far as pressuring Obama began, but it was Panetta and Petraeus who ultimately pushed Obama to finally act – sort of.

Panetta was receiving significant reports from both his direct CIA sources, as well as Petraeus-originating Intel. Petraeus was threatening to act on his own via a bombing attack. Panetta reported back to the president that a bombing of the compound would result in successful killing of Osama Bin Laden, and little risk to American lives. Initially, as he had done before, the president indicated a willingness to act. But once again, Jarrett intervened, convincing the president that innocent Pakistani lives could be lost in such a bombing attack, and Obama would be left attempting to explain Panetta’s failed policy.

Again Obama hesitated – this time openly delaying further meetings to discuss the issue with Panetta. A brief meeting was held at this time with other officials, including Secretary Gates and members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but Gates, like Panetta, was unable to push the president to act. It was at this time that Gates indicated to certain Pentagon officials that he may resign earlier than originally indicated – he was that frustrated. Both Panetta and Clinton convinced him to stay on and see the operation through.

What happened from there is what was described by me as a “masterful manipulation” by Leon Panetta. Panetta indicated to Obama that leaks regarding knowledge of Osama Bin Laden’s location were certain to get out sooner rather than later, and action must be taken by the administration or the public backlash to the president’s inaction would be “…significant to the point of political debilitation.” It was at that time that Obama stated an on-ground campaign would be far more acceptable to him than a bombing raid.

This was intended as a stalling tactic, and it had originated from Jarrett. Such a campaign would take both time, and present a far greater risk of failure. The president had been instructed by Jarrett to inform Mr., Panetta that he would have sole discretion to act against the Osama Bin Laden compound. Jarrett believed this would further delay Panetta from acting, as the responsibility for failure would then fall almost entirely on him. What Valerie Jarrett, and the president, did not know is that Leon Panetta had already initiated a program that reported to him –and only him, involving a covert on the ground attack against the compound.

Basically, the whole damn operation was already ready to go – including the specific team support Intel necessary to engage the enemy within hours of being given notice. Panetta then made plans to proceed with an on-ground assault. This information reached either Hillary Clinton or Robert Gates first (likely via military contacts directly associated with the impending mission) who then informed the other. Those two then met with Panetta, who informed each of them he had been given the authority by the president to proceed with a mission if the opportunity presented itself. Both Gates and Clinton warned Panetta of the implications of that authority – namely he was possibly being made into a scapegoat. Panetta admitted that possibility, but felt the opportunity to get Bin Laden outweighed that risk.

During that meeting, Hillary Clinton was first to pledge her full support for Panetta, indicating she would defend him if necessary. Similar support was then followed by Gates. The following day, and with Panetta’s permission, Clinton met in private with Bill Daley and urged him to get the president’s full and open approval of the Panetta plan. Daley agreed such approval would be of great benefit to the action, and instructed Clinton to delay proceeding until he had secured that approval. Daley contacted Clinton within hours of their meeting indicating Jarrett refused to allow the president to give that approval.

Daley then informed Clinton that he too would fully support Panetta in his actions, even if it meant disclosing the president’s indecision to the American public should that action fail to produce a successful conclusion. Clinton took that message back to Panetta and the CIA director initiated the 48 hour engagement order. At this point, the President of the United States was not informed of the engagement order – it did not originate from him, and for several hours after the order had been given and the special ops forces were preparing for action into Pakistan from their position in Afghanistan, Daley successfully kept Obama and Jarrett insulated from that order.

There is much, much more here.

So let me get this right. It was Leon Panetta, not Barack Obama who put this deal together, and made the “gutsy call.” As usual, Obama was voting “present.” The only difference is this time he had a real leader calling him out and forcing him to act. And it was Valerie Jarrett in charge of the Oval Office, not Obama.

This is simply amazing to me.

In what amounted to a West Wing coup d’état, Panetta, Hillary Clinton, Bob Gates, and General David Petraeus, all forced Obama to act. Even more interesting is they were ready to just do it, and suffer the consequences later, had Obama’s dithering continued. .

No doubt General Petraeus and Secretary Gates understood it had to be done, and both Panetta and Secretary Clinton are well aware Bill Clinton had bin Laden where he could have been killed, and passed up at least two chances to get it done. One wonders just how different history would be had Clinton killed bin Laden years before he had the chance to pull off the 9/11 attacks.

One thing about it, I guess we all know now why Gates decided to “pursue other opportunities” and both Panetta and Petraeus suddenly found themselves in better jobs!

It’s troubling enough that Obama had to be forced into making this call, and it’s despicable for Obama’s campaign to shamelessly raise money off of the deal. It’s totally unacceptable for this little Chicago street thug to take credit for any of it.

This reminds me of the ridiculous events the communist Russians stage to make Vladimir Putin look like a badass:

Obama is a weakling who evidently lets Valerie Jarrett call all the shots. No wonder he has so much time for golf!

Let me leave asking this: How do you think the “Muslim street” will feel knowing Obama is using the death of bin Laden to raise money to get re-elected?

Disgraceful … Shameless … Bastard

Does Mitt Romney Agree With Bill Maher About Sarah Palin?

By Gary P Jackson

An interesting little tidbit from Robert Stacy McCain. We’ve long held Mitt Romney is a political coward. It seems others are taking note, and speaking out.

In case you missed it, hate-filled HBO “star” Bill Maher one-upped his own most tasteless anti-Palin slurs.

Question: Has Mitt Romney ever spoken out forcefully in Gov. Palin’s defense? Because some people have noticed the crickets chirping:

Joseph Fein, a party insider from the Los Angeles area, said some people feel they can’t trust Romney. “Where was he when Michael Steele was being attacked?” Fein said. “Where was he when Sarah Palin was attacked? Romney not standing up was noticed.

Let Me Get This Right WaPo’s Dave Weigel Defends Sarah Palin’s Dangerous, Deranged Stalker, Then Hammers Palin? Really?

You know, I really have better things to do than deal with this nimrod, but this guy, Dave Weigel over at the Washington Post makes me sick. The fact that he bills himself as a “Conservative Republican Insider” makes me want to both laugh, and throw things at the same time.

No doubt, by now you know Sarah Palin has a stalker, an unhinged, and increasingly believed dangerous, deranged stalker: Joe McGinniss. Sarah, herself, wrote about the fact this Grade A whack job has rented the home next door for the summer. Stacy Drake wrote about Sarah’s note, and did some quick background. You can read her report here.

McGinniss is a nasty fellow on a good day, and when he’s not plagiarizing other people’s work, he writes hit pieces on Sarah Palin. Sarah writes this about Joe’s brand of “journalism.

Knowing of his many other scathing pieces of “journalism” (including the bizarre anti-Palin administration oil development pieces that resulted in my Department of Natural Resources announcing that his work is the most twisted energy-related yellow journalism they’d ever encountered), we’re sure to have a doozey to look forward to with this treasure he’s penning.

I have yet to read anything McGinniss has written that includes fact one on any given subject. The guy has a vivid imagination though, most likely from all of those years of writing violent “true crime” novels, like Fatal Vision. He also penned a book about Nixon, as well.

Just how creepy is this fellow? THIS Creepy:

I haven’t been able to reach McGinniss, but did send an errant email to his son, the novelist Joe McGinniss Jr., who replied, “Sadly, she’s right. We tried our best to intervene, but alas, the heart wants what it wants. We can only pray for him now. He’s convinced that Todd will step aside and when the time is right, he’ll be there, right next door, to pick up the pieces.

~ Ben Smith …. Politico

Kinda makes your skin crawl, doesn’t it.

We were reminded by a reader that McGinnis also bid $60,000 in the Ride2Recovery eBay auction to benefit wounded troops. Sarah donated a private dinner with her and Todd to Ride2Recovery, with the winning bidder getting some quality time with the Palins.

We knew about Joe’s attempt at the time, but blew it off as a stunt, something one of Obama’s little hate bloggers in Alaska would pull. But putting this into context with what Joe Jr. told Ben Smith, this whole thing just went off the freak-me-out-o-meter scale!

Sarah talks about her concern for her children’s safety. That’s just like a mother. I’m more concerned about her safety, and frankly Todd’s. Over the years we’ve seen more than a few obsessed nutbag stalkers, and this sort of thing never ends well. Never.

That’s why when I read this crap by the Washington Post’sConservative Republican Insider,” Dave Weigel, I wanted to puke. What a darling this loser must be in real life.

This crapweasel goes for maximum douchebaggery right off the bat:

Sarah Palin’s strange, unprofessional and paranoid grudge

Sarah Palin took to her Facebook account today to inform her readers that Joe McGinniss, an award-winning reporter and author, had rented the house next door.

I saw Ben Smith flag this earlier today but did not really appreciate how strange and, frankly, immature Palin’s post was until I read it.

Palin informs her readers that McGinniss is “overlooking my children’s play area” and “overlooking Piper’s bedroom.” Alternately sounding angry and mocking, she refers to “the family’s swimming hole,” which at first reference sounds like she’s accusing McGinniss of checking out the Palins in their bathing suits, until you realize the family’s “swimming hole” is Lake Lucille. And she posts a photo of the space McGinniss is renting, captioning it, “Can I call you Joe?

Can somebody explain to me how this isn’t a despicable thing for Palin to do? She describes McGinniss as the author of “the bizarre anti-Palin administration oil development pieces that resulted in my Department of Natural Resources announcing that his work is the most twisted energy-related yellow journalism they’d ever encountered.

Unprofessional,” …. “paranoid, ” …. “immature” …. “despicable” …. Really Dave? Really? How’s about we do some digging and find out where you live pal. You got a family? Maybe your mate is a hottie. Maybe we should fantasize about you taking a hike, and us stepping in and “takin’ care of business” with the “little lady“?

Oh who the hell are we kidding here?!? This loser probably lives in some rundown Washington D.C. tenement with little furniture and a half dozen cats. Poor cats!

You can read the rest of this clown …. I mean …. Mr. “Conservative Republican Insider’s” mind numbing drivel here.

Meanwhile, there are still real men in the world, men who believe in virtue. Men who actually think when a crazy man is stalking someone you care about, you don’t sit back and take it. Men who don’t think it’s “unprofessional” to call someone out when they have crossed way over the line. In this case, one of these men would be Glenn Beck.

Glenn told his radio listeners Tuesday that Sarah had e-mailed him about this situation. Being kindred spirits, I know he could relate. The hate on the left knows no bounds, as Beck knows all to well. He’s had to hire all kinds of security and take other drastic measures.

Anyhow, here’s Glenn discussing the situation:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

We’ll post Glenn’s interview with Sarah as soon as it’s available.

Not that I would ever condone it’s use, but some advice to Joe McGinniss: Sarah has one of these, and a whole lot more to go with them. And just like ZZ Top sang in “Legs” she sure knows how to use ‘em!

I would recommend Sarah pick up one or two of these things.

Past that, if you are as freaked out by Joe McGinniss as I am, here are a couple of e-mail addresses you can contact Random House at. Be respectful, as we wouldn’t want to upset David Weigel’s tender sensibilities. After all, Dave is a “Conservative Republican Insider,” ya know.
