In this episode, I discuss what the Obama Administration knew about Benghazi and the gun running.
Meat & Potatoes
Everything we’ve been saying since the events of Benghazi happened were finally confirmed thanks to the all the hard work by the team at Judicial Watch.
In documents and reports that they were able to obtain, it proves that the Obama administration knew of the pending attack on the Benghazi consulate 10 days in advance. They also confirm the gun running from Benghazi to Syria.
One report states:
“The attack was planned ten or more days prior on approximately 01 September 2012. The intention was to attack the consulate and to kill as many Americans as possible to seek revenge for U.S. killing of Aboyahiye ((ALALIBY)) in Pakistan and in memorial of the 11 September 2001 atacks on the World Trade Center buildings.”
A report from October 2012 says:
“Weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the Port of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The weapons shipped during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s, and 125 mm and 155mm howitzers missiles.
“During the immediate aftermath of, and following the uncertainty caused by, the downfall of the ((Qaddafi)) regime in October 2011 and up until early September of 2012, weapons from the former Libya military stockpiles located in Benghazi, Libya were shipped from the port of Benghazi, Libya to the ports of Banias and the Port of Borj Islam, Syria. The Syrian ports were chosen due to the small amount of cargo traffic transiting these two ports. The ships used to transport the weapons were medium-sized and able to hold 10 or less shipping containers of cargo.”
A Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) further stated:
“The weapons shipped from Syria during late-August 2012 were Sniper rifles, RPG’s and 125mm and 155mm howitzers missiles. The numbers for each weapon were estimated to be: 500 Sniper rifles, 100 RPG launchers with 300 total rounds, and approximately 400 howitzers missiles [200 ea – 125mm and 200ea – 155 mm.]”
What about the rise of radical Islamic groups such as the Islamic State? Certainly we had warning about them and their motives?
Another DIA report said:
“The deterioration of the situation has dire consequences on the Iraqi situation and are as follows:
“This creates the ideal atmosphere for AQI [al Qaeda Iraq] to return to its old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi, and will provide a renewed momentum under the presumption of unifying the jihad among Sunni Iraq and Syria, and the rest of the Sunnis in the Arab world against what it considers one enemy, the dissenters. ISI could also declare an Islamic state through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, which will create grave danger in regards to unifying Iraq and the protection of its territory.”
5 facts about BBQ
Memorial Day weekend is right around the corner, and for many, BBQ goes hand in hand. Here are 5 interesting facts about BBQ:
- They really don’t know where the word barbeque came from. It evolved from the Spanish word barbacoa, but where it actually originated, they don’t know.
- George Washington wrote about attending a barbecue back in 1769 in Virginia.
- The famed “smoke ring.” You know that faint reddish “smoke ring” around the perimeter of the meat? This is formed by a chemical reaction between myoglobin, an oxygen-carrying protein in the muscle tissue, and the carbon monoxide in the smoke.
- The largest BBQ competition in the country is in Kansas City at the American Royal World Championship. On average there are around 500 competitors.
- Oklahoma has the most BBQ joints per capita, where there are roughly 1 for every 5000 residents.

Who Said That?
Let me just say this: Susan Sarandon deserves to live and stay in Hollyweird. When you say its because of Reagan that people are forced to have to take responsibility for things that could make them homeless, you may just be too stupid to insult.
