I don’t even know why I write about this, except that it’s so amusing. Erik Rush says that, while opposing Boko Haram publicly, he supports them privately because of his Islamist agenda.

Carried to its logical conclusion, the investigation into the Benghazi attack could topple the Obama administration, and then some. Clinton’s presidential ambitions could be irreparably damaged, depending on the outcome. So, both have ample motivation for diverting public attention from Benghazi. They, the press and powerful Democrats are attempting to set the stage for this investigation to be downplayed as much as possible; this is to say nothing of more subtle manipulation of the process in which the administration will no doubt engage.

…The reason is that it has become politically expedient for the Obama administration to condemn Boko Haram, if only rhetorically. Their actual foreign policy objectives in Nigeria are similar to what they were – or are – in Egypt, Libya and Syria: Destabilize the non-Islamist regime in order to pave the way for an Islamist one. In Nigeria, Obama and Co. will publicly oppose Boko Haram’s terrorism and carnage while ideologically (and perhaps covertly) supporting them, and realize the added bonus of being on the right side of women’s issues back home.

    Some right wing pundit named John Hawkins has a nonsensical rant about liberals that like-minded souls just love to publish in forums like this. We had one former regular who posted it here. Apparently there is a consensus on the right that we liberals disagree with their delusional views of the world because we ignore facts. I always laugh at that premise. Just yesterday some rightie was in this forum propagating a quote from George Washington that does not exist.

    Anyway, I took the liberty of correcting the text of the Hawkins screed, which only required me to replace the word liberal, with conservative. Erik, this one goes out to you. I can think of no one to whom it is more applicable.

    Conservativism creates a feedback loop.

    It is usually impossible for a non-conservative

    to change a conservative’s mind about political

    issues because conservativism works like so:

    only conservatives are credible sources of information.

    How do you know someone’s conservative?

    He espouses conservative doctrine. So,

    no matter how plausible what you say may be,

    it will be ignored if you’re not a conservative and

    if you are a conservative, of course, you probably

    agree with conservative views. This sort of

    close-mindedness makes conservatives nearly

    impervious to any information that might

    undermine their beliefs.”»

      Dan Burton is the ‘source’ of many manufactured quotes from our founding fathers. He’s the only one that ‘finds’ them, no biographer or historian seems to be able to find these pro-christian, pro gun blurbs.

    Every time the RWNJ’s bring up Benghazi, you can bet Obamacare hit another successful milestone.

    and, lest we forget, POTUS Obama is deep in a conspiracy with North Korea to cover up the total failure in stopping Putin in the Ukraine which is nothing like the Putin/Obama cover up to take attention away from POTUS Obama ‘s failures in Syria, which is covering up the total failure at Benghazi which was the cover up of the fake death of Osama Bin Laden which was the cover up of the POTUS Obama’s failures in Afghanistan and The Islamic Republic of Iraq, which POTUS Obama used to cover up his fake Hawaiian birth certificate, which! – leads me to one simple question:

    Why would any thinking person support anyone as willfully INCOMPETENT as the Republican Political Party?
