Since we’re all taking a bit of a break post-election, this open thread may serve for a couple of days.
I’m watching two things very closely right now:
Stories on Voter Fraud
Particularly in Allen West’s district. This picture says it all:
Of course, the left would have us believe that the security of our elections is beyond reproach. Move along folks, nothing to see here…
The Petraeus / Benghazi Saga
This is the most interesting story in the news right now, and with good reason. The more information that comes out, the more I am convinced that there is much more to this story yet to be revealed.
Based on the currently available information, it appears that Petraeus may have been blackmailed into supporting the Obama administration’s claim that the Benghazi attack was the result of a YouTube video. At the very least, it’s clear that Petraeus had a reason to not piss off the administration in hopes that he might keep his job despite the affair.
It also appears that since Petraeus stepped up and resigned (at the request of the Obama administration), and did so without incident (so far), that Petraeus may have a larger reason not to make waves. One possibility is that the affair began while he was in the military, which would mean potential prosecution and demotion (which would mean a reduction in retirement pay, I’m sure).
It looks like Petraeus is going to testify to Congress behind closed doors after all. That should be interesting.
I’m also wondering how/why General Allen’s name suddenly started floating around in connection with this story. There’s no reason whatsoever that Allen’s name should have been released. That seems 100% intentional, which begs the question, why? Is Allen being smeared on purpose and, if so, by whom? Why are so many of the military’s top people dropping at the same time?
Is it possible that the Obama administration is intentionally smearing the military as a way to push through military spending cuts? Or some other, even more nefarious purpose?
What say you?
