    Thursday May 21 | San Jose Mercury News

    What happens when the public does not wish to live out the utopian dreams of its elite leaders? Usually, the answer for those leaders is to seek more coercion and less liberty to force people to think progressively. Here at home, President Barack Obama came into power in 2009 with a Democratic Congress, a sympathetic press, and allies in Hollywood, academia, unions, and philanthropic and activist foundations.

    Thursday May 21 | News Max

    Even as Obama administration officials blamed the 2012 attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, on a U.S.-made film mocking the Prophet Mohammed, they should have known that a terrorist group with ties to al-Qaida was thought to be behind the attack. That's because an email was sent by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton - via her foreign policy adviser - just days after the attack informing them of that possibility, The New York Times reported.

    Thursday May 21 | Quebec Chronicle-Telegraph

    What did she know and when did she know it? More important: WTF were we doing in Libya to begin with? The worst thing about the endless investigations into the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya-an attack that killed four Americans, inlcuding Amb. Chris Stevens-is that they obscure the larger picture: WTF were we doing in Libya in the first place? President Obama involved us in a war situation not just without congressional approval but without any sort of consultation.
