The Clinton faithful will never be swayed but for those without blinders here is yet another example that Ambassador Stevens was setup all along to be the fall guy. It isn’t conspiracy when the facts support it.
What’s the answer? Wealth redistribution of course! Socialism that would make Bernie Sanders proud.
Snyder’s plan to revamp Detroit schools and address its crippling $750 million debt involves creating an entirely new district that would handle school operations.
Detroit Public Schools, and its School Board, would remain for the sole purpose of paying the debt. The new district would have a school board appointed by the governor and Mayor Mike Duggan, with all of the members becoming elected officials by 2021.
Snyder said the plan takes about $50 per student statewide to deal with the Detroit problem and puts about $1,100 per student back into Detroit classrooms.
Although the state is sharing Detroit’s burden, Snyder said it would be much worse if Detroit Public Schools went bankrupt.
He said this would put an estimated $1 billion pension liability on schools statewide.
Many likely don’t recall the warnings against electing Snyder as to his leftist leanings. You’re getting a good dose of them lately with his bailout of the City of Flint for their water disaster and now Detroit for its school debacle. What’s the takeaway? Mis-manage your ass off for as long as you want because at some point you become too big to fail and big brother will step in to spread the burden to all. Yet people will still promote the progressive agenda. Amazing.
Spellchek just posted on the Clinton Benghazi fiasco and highlighted that neither the media nor the committee are even asking the relevant questions – https://spellchek.wordpress.com/2015/10/23/who-won-the-the-latest-clinton-benghazi-testimony/.
So it was nice to see a media source actually touch on the main issue. What the CIA was doing that led to the deaths of 4 Americans. Hillary likes to score political points by repeatedly using this as a talking point claiming that everyone should be focusing on the deaths of 4 Americans rather than her conduct. Sort of reminds one of O.J. claiming he’s still searching for the real killers.
Via The Business Insider: Here’s the biggest issue the Benghazi committee didn’t ask Hillary Clinton about
The questions from the committee touched on everything from Clinton’s correspondence with controversial ally and informal adviser Sidney Blumenthal, to the several allegedly ignored requests for increased security at the US diplomatic facility in Benghazi.
But the questioners didn’t seem as interested in what the diplomatic facility was actually doing.
The article doesn’t break any new ground nor does it delve deeper to ask about the ties throughout the beltway to the weapons trafficking. That’s a taboo subject from all involved and should you dare even question it you are quickly labeled a conspiracy nut. Consider the fallout should the truth ever come to light. Scandal beyond anything D.C. has ever seen.
Lanny Davis is your standard goose stepping leftist who promotes everything Clintonian. As would be expected, he opined a piece for Fox News covering Hillary Clinton’s latest Benghazi testimony –
Here’s the thing. He’s right. Spellchek has told you for years that the GOP has only pursued Clinton for her Benghazi involvement to beat her in 2016. Her latest testimony was just more of the same.
Where he’s wrong is the questions he tells us all Americans should ask Trey Gowdy.
1. What has been achieved after spending $4.7 million of taxpayers money?
2. Why did you keep Secretary Clinton on the witness stand for 11 hours and yet admit you learned nothing new from her?
3. Why did your committee exist in the first place? You claim you discovered Hillary Clinton’s emails and private server. But you did not, you could not, cite a single email that helped tell us more about the tragedy of Benghazi?
Those are just the standard DNC talking point questions to defend Clinton. The old news/waste of taxpayer money angle. As much a waste of time as the GOP only keeping the Benghazi narrative alive to extend its news cycle into the election.
What we should be asking are these questions.
- Why was the CIA involved in weapons trafficking and jihadist recruitment in Libya? After all, this is the core issue that led to the entire Benghazi incident.
- To what extent were both major political parties involved in Libya and the cover-up? This is why the GOP won’t try to get the real Benghazi truth exposed as it would mean implicating a whole host of benefactors on both sides of the aisle. It’s why Obama is protected from exposing his involvement. Going after Clinton for political gain is merely sport in D.C. so that’s no big deal to beltway politicians.
- Why was the phone call to Bibi Netanyahu during the Benghazi attack so important it couldn’t be rescheduled and required the President’s inner circle to be involved? Biden was there. Tom Donilon was there. Denis McDonough was there. Jack Lew was there. Here’s the link to the official White House photo showing them immediately afterward – https://www.flickr.com/photos/whitehouse/8077964862/in/set-72157631747480080.
These questions get you closer to the real truth concerning Benghazi. They sidestep the partisanship. They illustrate how Clinton and Obama and the GOP all have a vested interest in keeping the truth hidden. Spellchek covered it here – https://spellchek.wordpress.com/2012/12/26/the-truth-behind-benghazi-will-blow-you-away/ – nearly 3 years ago. Clinton was all in with regime change in Libya. The Benghazi consulate was just a cover and Ambassador Chris Stevens just a pawn. Obama also wanted Qaddafi out in Libya and gave the blessing for the CIA op to run weapons and fighters. The GOP had several members involved in standard military-industrial complex contracts to profit.
The point is that everyone has involvement and cannot allow the truth to ever surface. When leftover Libyan weapons were making their way to Hamas, Netanyahu found out. He also found out that it was the U.S. coordinating those weapons transfers. Obama made the decision to make Stevens the fall guy as a rogue player due to his history as a Hamas supporter. The Benghazi attacks were planned and coordinated well in advance. The June, 2012 dry run attack as well as the precision mortar attacks are testament to prior planning. The 600 security request denials by the Secretary of State from the Ambassador also show that the attack was pre-planned. The compounds had to be destroyed to eliminate evidence. Whether Stevens was targeted all along by Obama or simply became a target of convenience and opportunity is only known by Obama and his minions. Spellchek points out all the time that governments always engage in multi-tasking when it comes to foreign policy. Wasting Stevens and the other 3 casualities were to appease Bibi as directly arming Hamas is intolerable even from Obama and his hatred of Israel. Had you listened in to that phone call, you would have heard Obama sell Bibi on the rogue agent scenario. Stevens was allowed to die. The CIA op was dismantled. Israel was appeased.
Even today, over 3 years after the fact, the true story hasn’t come to light. Internet search all you like and you’ll not find it. Spellchek is the only source to give you the answers to ALL angles of Benghazi.
The municipal water supply in Flint, Michigan has been toxic to its citizens since the city switched water sources from Lake Huron water provided by Detroit to Flint River water. Elevated levels of lead have been found throughout the city including in its schools. TTHM levels have exceeded government guidelines forcing the city to mail notices to its citizens. The outcry from citizens, activists, college labs and hospital staff have finally forced the Governor of Michigan to act and approve the switch back to Detroit supplied water.
As you would expect, there is quite a bit more to the back story surrounding the water in Flint. I don’t wish to rehash what is easily available on the web here. The bottom line is it is all about money. The city is broke and was operating under the direction of an emergency manager when the decision was made to switch water sources. Why? The lease agreement with Detroit was set to expire and Flint was fed up with the ever increasing fees. They made the decision to join in with other neighboring communities to and build their own pipeline to Lake Huron and cut out the middleman. The day after they made that decision Detroit informed Flint they would no longer sell them water as of April, 2014. So when it comes to finger pointing some can say Detroit is to blame. Had they continued to sell water to Flint for the 3 year waiting period for the new pipeline to be finished (mid 2016 is the projection), Flint wouldn’t have ever switched to the river as its water source and avoided the toxic water issue altogether.
But they did and the emergency manager put in place by the state made the decision to make the switch and save the city millions of dollars in fees over the next 3 years. This is where the left is jumping in with both feet. Michigan has a republican Governor and the left seized upon the opportunity to blame the state for its water woes.
Fixing the problem will require many millions of dollars and many years to accomplish. Pipes with lead are still in use all across the city and must be replaced to permanently cure the problem. The finger pointing is just the very tip of the iceberg for the years of legal wrangling to come over who will pick up the tab.
But what gets lost in the debate is the true cause. The city of Flint has been under decades of control by the progressive left. The socialist experiment has failed miserably. Crime is horrific. The city has huge swaths of decrepit housing and abandoned buildings. Manufacturing is just a shell of the heyday of last century. School enrollment and finances are in disarray. And the current citizens and taxpayers are left with the tab. Mainly a massive pension obligation as these socilism experiments always rack up. The tax base is nowhere near deep enough or wide enough to ever catch up. Thus the need for an emergency manager.
So the editor of the Flint Journal and a conga line of local hack politicians are jumping onboard to tell all who will listen that the fault lies with the state for instituting the water supply switch. But when you ask why the emergency manager was ever put in that position you find a half century plus of liberal policies are the root cause. That’s not to excuse the emergency manager for making an unwise decision, which it was, only to point out that blaming the response as opposed to the cause is typical of the left.
Now the scars of failed policies are sure to live on for an untold amount of time as the vulnerable will suffer the effects of toxic water. The blame game is simply posturing to lobby who will have to pay. However, the discussion won’t even venture into why it all went down the way it did. And that’s just the way the left likes it.
