Two Brothers at Center of Benghazi Controversy: One Runs CBS News, the Other Is Obama’s Adviser

The disclosure this week of a White House document on Benghazi has thrust CBS News into the spotlight for its coverage in the aftermath of the terrorist attack.

CBS News President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, the White House deputy national security adviser who drafted the newly released document about Benghazi just days after the Sept. 11, 2012, attack that killed four Americans. Ben Rhodes’s involvement was first revealed Tuesday when Judicial Watch obtained the document as part of a court case.

The Washington Free Beacon reports CBS was the only evening newscast not to cover the latest details on Benghazi. The program instead covered “the weather, Oklahoma executions, and the arrest of a former Irish Republican Army operative.”

Earlier yesterday, Glenn Beck interviewed Sharyl Attkisson, a former CBS News investigative reporter, about the Benghazi disclosure and the Rhodes brothers. Attkisson revealed that she sought the same Ben Rhodes document that Judicial Watch eventually obtained. CBS News, however, would not take the matter to court.

“CBS wasn’t willing to file a [Freedom of Information Act] lawsuit when I was there to try to get some of these documents,” Attkisson said.

She continued: “Of course I knew about the relationship between Ben Rhodes, the assistant to the president, and the president of CBS News. And there had been a little bit of reporting … involving Rhodes and some of the talking point matters, so I wasn’t terribly surprised. But I was glad to see written documentation that sheds a little more light on all of this.”

Attkisson resigned from CBS News in March. Among the reasons cited: a lack of support for her investigative reporting on Benghazi and other Obama administration scandals.

Former White House spokesman Tommy Vietor, in a tense interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier, downplayed the revived controversy over the Benghazi talking points, saying he does not remember his own role in the editing process because: “Dude, this was like two years ago.”

Vietor, the former spokesman for the National Security Council, insisted on “Special Report with Bret Baier” Thursday that emails that link a White House adviser to former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice’s controversial Sunday show statements about the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate say nothing new.

A Super PAC ad in support of Sen. Mary Landrieu (D., La.) blasts the Koch Brothers, but declines to mention that the Democratic incumbent has received more than $50,000 from the philanthropists since 2000.

Town Hall reports:

According to a recent Politico investigation into the Koch brothers and how they spend their money, it appears that the Kochs don’t just give to Republicans, like so many people believe, and in fact have given money to Senator Mary Landrieu. They found that since 2000, Ms. Landrieu has accepted $55,000 from the KochPAC.

The voiceover in the new ad states:

“We’ve been battered by hurricanes, lost everything to floods. And for thousands of Louisianans, flood insurance and hurricane relief are our only protection. But the out-of-state billionaire Koch brothers funded the fight to let flood insurance premiums soar, helping the insurance companies and cut off hurricane relief for Louisiana families. Now they’re spending millions to buy a Senate seat for Bill Cassidy so he can fight for them. If the Kochs and Cassidy win, Louisiana loses.”

In an epic standoff that Infowars reporter David Knight described as being like “something out of a movie,” supporters of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy advanced on a position held by BLM agents despite threats that they would be shot at, eventually forcing BLM feds to release 100 cattle that had been stolen from Bundy as part of a land grab dispute that threatened to escalate into a Waco-style confrontation.

…Potential Criminal Act AND Disses Wisconsin Governor and possible Republican Presidential candidate Scott Walker…

Yes we turn in republicans when they deserve it. WE are not lliberals!

Project Veritas has uncovered some troubling information with regards to dishonesty and possible corruption in Wisconsin. Our main goal is to provide transparency, inform you of the facts and then let you decide.

Wisconsin State Senate President Mike Ellis has been a staunch advocate against outside money from special interests and SuperPACs, conducting several interviews with various media outlets on the very topic. But behind closed doors, he sings to a different tune.

You’ll be shocked at Senator Ellis’s dishonesty, the comments he makes about fellow Republican, Wisconsin Governor and possible Republican Presidential candidate Scott Walker and the potential criminal acts he conspires to commit by violating Wisconsin’s election laws by planning to coordinate with SuperPACs.

That and much more is all caught on this bombshell undercover video. Is Wisconsin State Senator Mike Ellis corrupt and dishonest?

Take a look and the video and you be the judge.

Members of the New Black Panther Party gathered outside the office of Texas Ranger Danny Young to protest the death of Alfred Wright.

“Alfred is going to be the spark that ignites a movement of human rights here in America, especially for those people of African American descent,” Jay Morrison said.

Members of the New Black Panthers, New Black United Front and community members arrived at the Jasper Department of Public Safety office around noon Monday.

“We are here to get justice,” Kysta Muhammad of the New Black Panthers said. “We shouldn’t have to go through all this [expletive] trouble.”

The protestors claim that Wright’s death is being covered up by Young. An autopsy on Wright’s body showed that Wright died from a combination of dangerous drugs.

Wright went missing in the Hemphill area Nov.7,2013. Wright’s body was found 18 days later in a field only yards from where he was last seen alive.

Obama-Appeaser-in-Chief

In an increasingly dangerous world where most Americans are distracted by busy lives and domestic politics, an award-winning national security reporter, Bill Gertz, is watching a radical, progressive transformation of America’s image and capabilities.

And Gertz is underwhelmed with Republican efforts to challenge, expose or stop the changes that are already underway.

In this two-part video interview, Gertz says Obama’s statecraft can best be summarized as “appeasement-oriented policies.”

“Those have translated into supporting America’s enemies and really being neutral or opposed to America’s friends and allies,” he said. “In a nutshell, that’s really where the Obama administration is. It’s kind of advanced much more now in the second term to a very liberal agenda, looking at America as the cause of all the world’s evils and really trying to focus attention on his domestic agenda.”

Gertz goes on to review the realistic intentions and capabilities of China, the nation he thinks is our biggest threat outside of radical Islamic terrorists.

“To me, this current world situation of appeasing Vladimir Putin is very similar to the way that Britain appeased Hitler in the run up to World War II,” he continued. “Dictators don’t respond to appeasement. They take it as a green light to continue further aggression, further hegemony, and they [Obama officials] really need to rethink their policies towards Russia. I don’t think that’s possible. They are totally wedded to the liberal notion that we live in a non-confrontational global environment.”

A previous portion of the interview discussed why the media has failed to hold President Obama accountable.

JUST IN…

Rep. Darrell Issa wrote an article today for The Hill. In 2011, B. Todd Jones took over as head of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) – first as Acting Director and later as Director. The Bureau was in need of new leadership in the wake of Operation Fast and Furious, and his mission was to help the agency recover from that humiliating and dangerous scandal.

Just over a year ago, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on Operation Fearless, an undercover storefront operation that took place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin during Director Jones’ tenure. Everything about Operation Fearless went wrong: ATF agents allowed convicted felons to leave the store, Fearless Distributing, armed and dangerous. The store was burglarized and $39,000 worth of merchandise was lost — ATF had neglected to install an alarm system. In a separate incident, three weapons, including a machine gun, were stolen from an ATF vehicle. And agents hired a person with intellectual and developmental disabilities, who had an IQ in the 50s, to assist with store operations – and then arrested him for his involvement.

Three years after the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, ATF management has yet to fire any employees for their role in Operation Fast and Furious. That is inexcusable. ATF promised to change its culture, implement new policies and procedures, and hold agents accountable for their actions. As the details of Operation Fearless come to light, it’s difficult to see what has changed.

Full article

~ Background Match 2014 Operation Fearless, as it was called, was a multi-city program through which ATF opened roughly 37 pawn shops and storefronts around the country, often in or near gang areas, with the purpose of attracting felons and criminals to unknowingly sell their crime guns to the government. Agents would then trace the weapons to determine their source and use forensics to tie the guns to homicides.

Problem is, some storefronts opened across from schools and churches, against policy. Agents attracted juveniles with free video games and alcohol. In one case, the agency paid two informants, one mentally deficient, to get tattoos on their neck of a squid smoking a joint to promote the store. Taxpayers later paid to remove the tattoos.

* A man found an ‘X’ next to ‘Democratic Party’ already on a voter registration form he received from Covered California, the state’s Obamacare registrar

* The lifelong Republican asked to keep his name private, but said few people would notice – but his accountant did

* Covered California is sending 4 million voter cards to people following a lawsuit from a voter-rights group

* The Washington Post has reported that the Affordable Care Act will swell Democrats’ numbers because of how most uninsured Americans vote

According to Brian Cook, who is with Medicare and Medicaid Services, all of the health exchanges are required to offer voter registration in compliance with the 1993 National Voter Registration Act. But that doesn’t mean that when healthcare enrollees receive their voter registration applications that they are automatically marked as Democrats.

Covered California had not automatically sent out voter registration cards to all of their enrollees until the middle of March. They were threatened with a lawsuit by a number of liberal pro-Obama groups which includes the ACLU, Young Invincible and the League of Women Voters.

When one La Mesa couple, that asks not to be identified, received their voter registration card from Covered California, they were shocked to find that the box indicating Democratic Party had already been selected. The husband told local media:

“I’m an old guy and I never would have noticed it, except I have an accountant that notices every dot and dash on a piece of paper as a wife. [T]here’s an awful lot of people who are going to get this that are already registered and they don’t need to. I can see that, but I can’t see putting x on the form before it’s given to me in a little bitty box that nobody’s really going to notice.”

Receiving pre-marked voter registration cards reminds me of the numerous reports of voting machines automatically converting Romney votes to Obama votes in the 2012 election. Like the gentleman from La Mesa asked; how many people will notice the small box already marked for the Democratic Party?

Oh yeah, I wonder if the reason the couple were not able to speak to anyone with the California Secretary of State’s office is because the current Secretary is Debra Bowen, a diehard Obamanite Democrat? ~ Dave Jolly
