The OTHER 9/11, Obama Speech, Tonto & Twitter

Seeing that today is 9/11, the 17th year since Islamic terrorists attacked the USA on American soil, I thought appropriate to look at one of the surviving heroes of the OTHER 9/11 – Kris “Tonto” Paronto.

 

The OTHER 9/11 is the debacle that the Obama Administration via the management of the then Secretary of State Crooked Hillary allowed FOUR Americans – including Ambassador Chris Stevens – were slaughtered in Benghazi, Libya at a CIA Annex. Paronto was a survivor who joined in telling the story from a survivor’s perspective. That story was definitively NOT flattering to how Obama handled this 9/11 incident that happened on September 11, 2012.

 

Paronto has been in current events lately largely resulting from Conservative OUTRAGE of the self-serving lies of an Obama recent speech. The ex-President took credit for all of Trump’s current achievements which is only true from Leftist massaging of statistics to misrepresent actual facts.

 

I like the Jeanine Pirro critique of Obama’s lying to America:

It is appropriate at this point to share about the Paronto/Twitter feud. Twitter suspended Paronto’s Twitter account over criticizing Obama’s Benghazi comment idiocy.

Twitter Suspends Benghazi Hero for Mocking Obama

Twitter suspended former Army Ranger and Benghazi hero Kris “Tonto” Paronto for mocking liberals as “retards” after a Twitter user claimed that former President Barack Obama was the person who killed Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.

 

The tweet in question came in response to a clip from Obama’s speech at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign on Friday when he said, “We supposed to stand up to discrimination, and we’re sure as heck supposed to stand up clearly and unequivocally to Nazi sympathizers.”

 

He then asked, “How hard can that be, saying that Nazis are bad?”

 

Former Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill — who is credited with killing Bin Laden during a 2011 raid in Pakistan — responded to Obama’s question tweeting, “Nazis are bad. Now try saying, ‘Radical Islam….’”

 

 

O’Neill was referencing Obama’s reticence during his time in office to say that the United States was engaged in a fight against radical Islamic terrorism.

 

A Twitter account named Secret Society Alumnus responded to O’Neill’s tweet, writing, “He kinda killed Osama Bin Laden, so…,” as if to say Obama may not have been willing to say “radical Islamic terrorist,” but he took action against it.

 

O’Neill replied, “Do you know who you’re talking to?”

 

 

Paronto then jumped into the conversation, tweeting, “OMG ??!! Did you just tell the guy who Shot Bin Laden that @BarackObama did it?? BWAHAHAHA. Thank you for verifying that BHusseinObama worship and (Trump Derangement Syndrome) causes liberalists to skip retard and go straight to potato. #YouAreAnIdiot #NeverGoFullRetard”

 

Shortly thereafter, Twitter forced the former CIA security contractor to delete the tweet and suspended his account.

Paronto was back up and running by Sunday and tweeted, “After being in the @Twitter penalty box for a few and having to delete the tweet below for offending the leftist hate group @itmustend_ for their epic fail of telling Rob O’Neill that BHusseinObama killed UBL and not him, I’m back up…sooo Twitter doesn’t censor ehh @jack.”

 

Twitter Deleted Paronto Tweet

 

Paronto tagged Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in the tweet, who had just testified before Congress last week about the social media company’s efforts to remain an impartial platform for sharing political views.

 

In an Instagram post, Paronto wrote about his suspension, “Yes boys and girls …. and leftists, we have the right to free speech but only if it fits the leftists narrative, doesn’t show their stupidity and ignorance and most importantly doesn’t hurt their fragile little egos.”

 

On being reinstated on Twitter, Paronto got into a back and forth with former talk show host Montel Williams.

 

Paronto had first tweeted, “So this is what happens when you call out a leftist group with TDS for being idiots and they they cry to the Twitter police who never censors.”

 

Williams — who served in the Marines and is a Naval Academy graduate — replied, “No. This is what happens when you act like a prick, son. You’re not being persecuted, Sit down, shut up and grow the F up.” Williams has since deleted the tweet.

 

Paronto fired back, “Prick?? So did you just suspended for your hateful comment Semper Fudge?? Most likely not …and I ain’t your son ‘Sir’.. If I was I’d be an ignorant ass just like you. I grew up a long time ago, long before your Messiah BHO left me and my team to die.”

The American Left as represented by the Left Stream Media and Democrats particularly the sore loser Crooked Hillary, have been doing their best to frame President-Elect Trump’s victory with a crushing 306 awarded Electoral Votes is the result of “Fake News”.

 

In my book the Left is doing its best to delegitimize Donald Trump as President of the United States. And since the Left is trying to persuade their clueless voters to be angry against Trump’s voters, you must ask – WHY?

 

I haven’t heard or read anyone come to the conclusion I have arrived at, but hear is my simple Conservative voter reasoning. The Dems are setting the groundwork to censor Conservative Social Media and Conservative bloggers who do not tow the Leftist public agenda that is pushed by the Left Stream Media as “Real News”.

 

I have a couple of articles for you to read that I am certain the American Left will step up to the stump and holler Fake News with the sole purpose of influencing people to not consider an alternative view that Hillary Clinton is CROOKED.

The Queen of the Benghazi Video Lie Calls for Censoring of “Fake News” because “Lives are at Risk”

 

By TIM BROWN

DECEMBER 9, 2016

Freedom Outpost

 

A pathetic looking Hillary Clinton came out of hiding after the “most devastating loss in the history of American politics” to chime in on the brouhaha surrounding alleged “fake news,” saying that “lives are at risk.”

 

I have no idea who would want to actually attend a meeting where this woman is speaking. However, she spoke on Capitol Hill and urged Congress to pass legislation that would “boost the government’s response to foreign propaganda.”

 

She also showed her support for censoring whatever the government wants to label “fake news” on social media, which has already been touted as “sophisticated Russian propaganda tools.”

Hillary Clinton on Fake News Dangers | Hillary Clinton says fake news can have “real world consequences”: “This isn’t about politics or partnership. Lives are at risk.”

 

“It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly,” Clinton said.

 

“Let me just mention briefly one threat in particular that should concern all Americans — Democrats, Republicans, and Independents alike — especially those who serve in our Congress: the epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year,” Clinton said.

 

“It’s now clear that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences,” she said. “This isn’t about politics or partisanship. Lives are at risk. Lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days to do their jobs, contribute to their communities.”

 

“It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly. Bipartisan legislation is making its way through Congress to boost the government’s response to foreign propaganda, and Silicon Valley is starting to grapple with the challenge and threat of fake news,” Clinton added. “It’s imperative that leaders in both the private sector and the public sector step up to protect our democracy, and innocent lives.”

 

The irony of what Clinton is saying is utterly unbelievable! First, we are not a democracy. We’re a Republic.

 

Wasn’t it this witch that went out in front of the American people, conspired with Obama lackeys and sent out a spokesperson to blatantly lie to the American people about a fabricated story as the catalyst for the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack that resulted in four real American lives being lost? Why, yes, yes it was.

 

VIDEO: Obama and Hillary Blame Youtube Video for Benghazi Terrorist Attack as Coffins Arrive

Obama said he would stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in a ugly direction and he was not kidding. The bodies of Americans coming home in coffins after a terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11 and his administration takes the opportunity to go after Coptic Christians and critics of Islam in a anti free speech political stance.

 

Susan Rice, Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah and Clinton all stood behind the lie about the video, even though Gregory Hicks, a Benghazi eyewitness, said the video was a “nonevent,” that the CIA knew from the start that Benghazi was a jihadist attack and had nothing to do with a video, and that more than likely Obama speech writer Ben Rhodes had something to do with changing the talking points that were provided to the administration. Even Clinton’s own State Department were involved in altering the talking points and emails prove this. State Department emails also confirm that Clinton and the White House knew within two hours that Benghazi was not a protest gone bad, but was a full blown jihad attack. Emails even show that the Tripoli embassy urged the criminals in DC to “not conflate” the video with the Benghazi attack.

 

Not only did she do that, but she then said she never lied about it, even though she spent $75,000 of tax payer dollars to apologize the people of Pakistan for the video. Let’s not even get into the lies concerning her illegal email server, which has resulted in at least one death.

 

Perhaps we should start censoring her every time she opens her mouth with real fake news, since she is obviously not telling the truth. Remember the time she lied about escaping sniper fire in Bosnia?

 

We could go on and on with the crimes of Mrs. Clinton, her husband Bill, her daughter Chelsea and the Clinton Foundation, all of which there is evidence to bear out that their crimes are real, but are being covered up by their conspirators in the state-controlled media. However, they also have accomplices in Congress, too.

 

Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) have put forth  H.R 6393: Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017, which is in response to the real fake news mainstream media‘s claims that alternative media putting forth “fake news” are nothing more than agents of “Russian propaganda.”

 

It’s time the American people had enough of America’s own propaganda and demand their representatives and unelected people like Hillary Clinton stop attempting to infringe on the rights that are protected under the First Amendment concerning free speech, and freedom of the press.

Hillary Clinton: ‘It is Now Clear That So-called Fake News can Have Real-world Consequences’ [VIDEO]

 

By Philip Hodges

December 9, 2016

Eagle Rising

 

Democratic Senator Harry Reid of Nevada is throwing in the towel. He’s retiring at the end of this year.

 

Hillary Clinton was invited to speak at an event honoring the outgoing Senator, in which she praised Reid. Placed awkwardly in her speech without any segue was a brief segment about “malicious fake news” which can have “real-world consequences” – no doubt referencing the actor who barged in to a D.C. pizza joint to “investigate” a child prostitution ring thought to involve the Clintons, the Podestas, and many others.

 

Apparently, according to one of Hillary Clinton’s aides, the former Democratic nominee did stop by Comet Ping Pong – the pizza place in question – to meet with the owner.

 

In her speech celebrating Senator Reid’s career and life, she mentioned the story about Ben Franklin being asked following the Constitutional Convention what kind of government they had formed, to which Franklin replied, “A Republic. If you can keep it.” Then, she said something about “standing up for our democracy,” and went straight into “fake news.” From RCP:

 

Let me mention briefly one threat in particular that should concern all Americans. Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike, especially those who serve in our Congress:  The epidemic of malicious fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year. It is now clear that so-called fake news can have real-world consequences.

 

This isn’t about politics or partisanship. Lives are at risk. Lives of ordinary people just trying to go about their days, to do their jobs, contribute to their communities. It’s a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly.

 

Bipartisan legislation is making its way through Congress to boost the government’s response to foreign propaganda, and Silicon Valley is starting to grapple with the challenge and threat of fake news. 

 

It’s imperative that leaders in both the private sector and the public sector step up to protect our democracy and innocent lives. Harry Reid and Vice President Biden may be stepping back from the daily scrum of politics and governing, but I know I speak for them as well as tens of millions of Americans when I say that we are all counting on those of you who remain.

 

Her comments start around halfway in:

The media were so quick to draw conclusions about the ‘fake news’ story “pizzagate” and the actor who fired a shot at the pizza place. If the same guy had gone in and yelled, “Allahu Akbar!” and killed a few people, the media would make sure no one jumped to any conclusions. “Just because he said ‘Allahu Akbar’ doesn’t mean that he must be a Muslim. It doesn’t mean it’s terrorism. Maybe it was just a disgruntled ex-employee, you Islamophobes!”

 

But since a guy waltzed in claiming to be investigating an underground child prostitution ring, the media and political establishment are falling over themselves, trying to shut down every conservative and libertarian site for spreading “malicious fake news” – created by a “sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign” conspiracy – that’s had “real-world consequences.”

The 5 Biggest Obama Lies On His Iran Deal


Yesterday I cross posted an email from United with Israel [as of 12:10 PM the website was down. I pray the reason was an inundation of petition signing and not a hack] which sent out a link for petition signers against President Barack Hussein Obama’s Iran Nuke Deal. You can find that link at SlantRight 2.0 (one of my blogs). I introduced that petition post by claiming the Obama press conference promoting the deal was all a lie. Today in an email from the Western Center for Journalism (WJ) I saw a subject title that certainly got my attention: “The 5 Biggest Obama Lies On His Iran Deal”. Here is the paragraph blurb that email that includes the link that addresses the five lies:

When Obama lies, he lies big and without equivocation. Here are the 5 biggest lies he just told in reference to his deal that puts Iran, the world’s biggest state sponsor of terrorism, on the path to obtaining nuclear weapons…

The WJ email link goes to the Lie One page created by America’s Conservative News. Beginning with that first page here are the Five Lies.

[Blog Editor Aside: In case United with Israel website is still down and desire to voice your displeasure about Obama’s Iran Nuke Deal; thanks to Dajjal here’s another place to make your voice known: Reject The Iran Nuke Deal!]

The 5 Biggest Obama Lies On His Iran Deal

By Chris Carmouche (as noted ACN)

By Staff (as noted at 5 Lies Page)

July 17, 2015

America’s Conservative News

Big Lie # 1

FALSE: According to this faux arms treaty, there is a potential window of up to 24 days from the time when a request is made to visit a suspicious location to the time when the visit may actually occur. Of course, such a window would give Iran more than enough time to conceal any violations of the deal. Also, an “independent commission” will be empowered to review all requests and the provisions of the faux treaty also allow Iran to contest the request and even reject it outright.

ABC News, hardly a bastion of conservative opinion confirmed that contention: “Any inspections at those sites would need to be approved by a joint commission composed of one member from each of the negotiating parties. The process for approving those inspections could take as many as 24 days, which critics will claim is enough time for Iran to cover up any non-compliance.”

Moreover, it would appear that only representatives from nations that are friendly to the rogue Iran Regime will be allowed to conduct these inspections. Gary Bauer with American Values reports; “[I]nternational inspectors must ‘come from nations that have diplomatic relations with Iran.’ That means there will be no American inspectors allowed into Iran. Why would we agree to that?”

Of course, Barack Obama isn’t the only one spinning tall-tales about the “inspection” provisions of the deal. Congressman Don Beyer (D-VA) says: “Iran’s nuclear program will be under lock, key and camera 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The eyes of the international community are on every centrifuge, every ounce of uranium, in all of Iran’s nuclear facilities.”

Really?

Bauer again: “Far from being under lock and key, we have to ask permission to inspect a site and then the Iranians have more than three weeks to scrub it. That’s not exactly the “anywhere, anytime” inspections that the administration was demanding in April.

Big Lie # 2

FALSE: More than being false, this Obama fabrication is probably the most fanciful, as “snapping back” any sanctions is tantamount to closing the barn door after the horses have fled.

Under the terms of the deal, once it has been “verified” (and what constitutes “verified” is anyone’s guess) that Iran is dismantling its centrifuges and moth-balling its stockpiles of enriched uranium, the United States will release $100 billion in frozen assets.

ABC News reports: “Once it has been verified that Iran has committed to dismantling its centrifuges and diluting or selling its stockpile of enriched uranium, all economic sanctions will be lifted, effectively releasing over $100 billion in frozen Iranian assets.”

The question that sane people should be asking is; how does the United States go about recovering $100 billion dollars in released assets when -not if – Iran reneges on the deal in the foreseeable future?

Answer: It’s impossible.

Moreover, the United States is not the only nation that has sanctions against Iran. How would our political leaders ensure that other nations would follow suit if the United States decide to re-impose sanctions?

Answer: We can’t.

ForeignPolicy.com reports: “The phrase ‘snap back’ is vivid, and conveys precisely the sort of rapid, alert, and decisive action skeptical hawks have been demanding… But if sanctions really do ‘snap back’ as promised, it would be an unprecedented episode of economic diplomacy.”

An “unprecedented episode of economic diplomacy”? How about calling it an unprecedented act of prestidigitation. Even Barack Obama admitted, during the so-called negotiations, that global support for sanctions could fail if negotiations failed. In that vein, it would seem to make sense that some nations would be hesitant to reimpose sanctions.

But Iran may already have all it really wants. $100 billion may not seem like a lot of money but Iran’s economy is only $300-$400 billion, for them, $100 billion is a huge chuck of change.

And once the frozen assets are released, any imposition of sanctions may become meaningless as Iran may have already achieved its endgame, or at least achieved a major victory.

Jeffrey Goldberg with The Atlantic argues: “The U.S. could reimpose sanctions on Iran if Tehran cheats on the deal, but it would be reimposing these sanctions on what will be a much-richer country, one that could withstand such sanctions for quite a while.”

Snap back is a fantasy… a fool’s folly.

Big Lie # 3

FALSE: Does Barack Obama believe that anyone, including his supporters, are fooled by such a juvenile and moronic statement?

The Daily Caller reports: “Experts, including some in the U.S. government, are already warning that, whether Iran’s nuclear capacity is restricted or not, today’s deal is unlikely to stop the ongoing race for nuclear capacity in the Middle East.”

NBC News, among others, are already reporting that other nations in the region, such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Egypt are skeptical and will likely start to follow through on plans to acquire nuclear weapons.

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton states: “We have given Iran the path it has been seeking for almost 35 years. The other states in the region are not going to sit idly by, which is why in effect the nuclear arms race is already underway.”

Speaker of the House John Boehner agrees: “Instead of making the world less dangerous, this ‘deal’ will only embolden Iran — the world’s largest sponsor of terror — by helping stabilize and legitimize its regime as it spreads even more violence and instability in the region… Instead of stopping the spread of nuclear weapons in the Middle East, this deal is likely to fuel a nuclear arms race around the world.”

But Obama’s opponents aren’t the only ones who are sounding the alarm. The media is chiming in as well and the consensus is that this deal is going to make the world a much more dangerous place.

CNBC says: “An Iran nuclear deal could mean a new arms race in the Middle East…”

Fox News reports: “The newly announced Iran nuclear deal and the negotiations leading up to it already are fueling an all-but-declared nuclear arms race in the Middle East, according to current and former government officials who say the situation also creates an opening for Russia to exert more influence in the region.”

Ron Dermer, writing for the Washington Post, states: “Because states throughout our region know that the deal paves Iran’s path to the bomb, a number of them will race to get nuclear weapons of their own. The most dangerous region on earth would get infinitely more dangerous. Nuclear terrorism and nuclear war would become far more likely. In fact, if someone wanted to eviscerate the global nuclear nonproliferation regime, this deal is definitely a great place to start.”

But nuclear weapons aren’t the only danger that may destabilize the region.

ABC News reports: “The final win for Iran is the gradual lifting of an international arms embargo. The accord states that Iran will be permitted to buy and sell conventional arms on the international market in five years; and in eight years they’ll be able to do the same with ballistic missiles. The embargo was a major sticking point throughout the talks, with Iran demanding it be lifted.”

Rather than stopping the spread of nuclear weapons in the region, Obama may have jump-started an arms race in the Middle East.

Big Lie # 4

FALSE: When Barack Obama lies, he lies big and he lies with no equivocation; but we’ve come to expect whoppers from the man who told us that we could keep our doctor if we liked our doctor under ObamaCare.

This raw deal certainly doesn’t have the backing of our greatest ally in the region, Israel. Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is apoplectic and is calling the deal a “mistake of historic proportions.”

Other nations in the Middle East don’t appear to be too happy either.

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton: “We have given Iran the path it has been seeking for almost 35 years. The other states in the region are not going to sit idly by, which is why in effect the nuclear arms race is already underway.”

Many of our adversaries appear to like the deal.

Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani gloated:

“At the start of the negotiations, the other side would tell us that… Iran could have only 100 centrifuges… Today, the agreement is carried out under conditions that state that [Iran] will retain over 6,000 centrifuges, over 5,000 of which will be at Natanz and over 1,000 at Fordo. All centrifuges at Natanz will continue to enrich.

“They said, ‘The period of your restrictions will be 20 years, in addition to 25 years.’ Later they said ’20 years and 10 years.’ Then they said: ‘Last word – 20 years, and we will not capitulate any more.’ But in the final days of the negotiations, they went down to eight years.

“On the issue of sanctions, they would say, ‘Months must pass and you must earn trust so that later the sanctions can be gradually frozen – not lifted… Today I announce to the Iranian nation that under this agreement… all the sanctions – even the embargo on weapons, missiles, and proliferation – will be lifted.”

China and Russia might like the deal too, but it hardly has “the full backing of the international community.” It would be more apt to say that this deal has the full backing of the international community of America-haters.

Big Lie # 5

FALSE: Really Mr. Obama? Says who…?

Perhaps Barack Obama knows something that those who have already started to read the agreement don’t know. Perhaps there are some secret provisions that have yet to see the light of day that support Mr. Obama’s absurd assertion.

But as things now stand, everyone else is saying something different.

Gary Bauer with American Values writes: “Under the agreement Obama announced yesterday, Iran will have at least 5,000 centrifuges spinning away. Pakistan needed fewer than half that number to develop its nuclear weapons.”

An ABC News report confirms Bauer’s assertion: “Iran’s 19,000 installed centrifuges will have to be cut to no more than 6,104 for the next 10 years.”

The terms of the deal beg some questions, foremost among them: How can we be certain that Iran is not using its advanced centrifuges to produce enriched uranium if those centrifuges are up and running?

Answer: We can’t, not under the present terms for inspections.

If we wish to have a facility inspected, we must ask permission. Inspections will be conducted by individuals designated by a joint commission of nations that have diplomatic relations with Iran. Iran will maintain the right to reject the request and even if a request is approved, it could take up to 24 days to actually inspect the facility, meaning that Iran has more than adequate time to scrub evidence of non-compliance from the facility.

Centrifuges will keep spinning and facilities will keep functioning because Barack Obama moved his red line multiple times throughout these so-called negotiations.

Why does a nation that has more oil than Marcus Licinius Crassus had coin need to develop its nuclear program for peaceful purposes? Why should a nation that has broken so many agreements in the past in regards to its nuclear program be trusted now?

Ron Dermer, writing in the Washington Post, raises the same point: “Iran has been deceiving the International Atomic Energy Agency for years and has consistently refused to come clean about the possible military dimensions of its nuclear program — a commitment that Iran has once again been permitted to dodge before signing this agreement.”

Even Barack Obama once asked the same question, at least by implication.

Bauer again: “Two years ago, Obama said, ‘They don’t need to have an underground, fortified facility like Fordo in order to have a peaceful nuclear program.’ But this deal allows the Fordo facility to keep functioning.”

Lies, lies and more lies…
