AMAC: New Critics of The Administration Emerge Due To Benghazi Cover-Up and Obamacare ‘Train Wreck’

dan-weberPresidential obfuscation may harm future U.S. dealings with allies and enemies – 

BOHEMIA, NY, May 10 – “The Obama administration’s tangled web of so-called explanations began unraveling in recent days as the truth emerged on two controversial topics—Benghazi and Obamacare,” Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens, said.

“You know you’re in trouble when your own teammates start turning on you as was the case when Senator Max Baucus, D-Mont., called Obamacare a ‘train wreck’ in the making.  The remark was particularly painful for the president since Baucus is one of the team of Democrats who wrote the law,” he noted.

President Obama and his surrogates have been touting the “alleged benefits” of the Affordable Healthcare Act all along, dismissing criticism as pure partisan politics, Weber pointed out.  “But as the weeks turn into months, it becomes abundantly clear that the law has dangerous economic implications for the country and will deliver not-so-affordable healthcare when it is fully implemented.”

He said that a news report about the Baucus admission on the CBS Web site solicited comments from readers, resulting in more than 200 replies, many of which were extremely negative.

One reader wrote: “It appears that the OBAMA crazies are starting to see the light. ObamaCare is a tax on everyone and the tax just keeps getting bigger.  It will not be too long until all the truth about OBAMA’s agenda will be shown by the National Media and all will see what O has been up to.  Can’t wait for all the LIBs to apologize to the rest of us.”

 

Another commented: “OBAMACARE was a train wreck from the beginning.  All of the lies Obama and the Dems told are now coming back to haunt them.  Remember ‘this will lower costs’?  remember ’this will have no effect on your current plan’?  How about ‘this plan reduces the deficit’?  It is fair to say that everything you were told, was a lie.”

The AMAC chief predicts more Democratic lawmakers will come forward to admit their own misgivings about the law, which passed Congress in 2010 without a single Republican voting for it.

“Maybe there is hope for repeal.  This partisan piece of legislation may very well meet with a bipartisan induced demise,” Weber opined.

Meanwhile, he said, “the ghosts of Benghazi came back to haunt the administration” when three controversial witnesses showed up at a House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday.

“Mark Thompson, the acting deputy assistant secretary for counterterrorism, Gregory Hicks, a foreign service officer and former deputy chief of mission and chargé d’affairs in Libya, and Eric Nordstrom, diplomatic security officer and former regional security officer in Libya, certainly have credibility.  For the most part, they contradicted key elements of the Obama team’s explanations of what happened when the U.S. Consulate was attacked last September by terrorists,” Weber explained.

“These gentlemen have no political axe to grind; they are simply angry that American lives were lost due to inaction on the part of our government.”

Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the assault.

“Although the administration argues that no military assets were available that night to lend aid, Hicks testified that a Special Operations team in nearby Tripoli was ordered to stand down just as they were about to set off for Benghazi.  It was not revealed who gave the order to abort the rescue mission.”

Hicks, who was on the ground in Libya, also said that if fighter aircraft had been scrambled to provide cover over the consulate that night, there would not have been a mortar attack on the facility the next morning.  He implied that the mere presence of the fighters overhead would have scared off the attackers.

U.S. assets were available in Italy, in Spain and in Serbia and could have been over the consulate in a matter of hours.

“These developments, combined with many other examples of presidential obfuscation, may be damaging to the administration’s credibility.  But, more important, it may have done irreparable harm to future dealings between the U.S. and our allies and enemies,” Weber concluded.

I was once a member of AARP and thought the programs provided were what I needed. I then began to see actions and statements, allledly representing my views and that of the other members, that I personnally disagreed with and so stated to the leadership. When I saw or heard nothing to recognize my viewpoint, I realized that they were not interested in hearing from the membership and did not renew my membership. All the benefits of membership be damned. My voice was what I wanted heard, and hopefully, of others as well. I joined AMAC not very long ago, and have felt that my voice along with others were being heard. So that I am heard correctly, I do not believe in or support Obamacare. I do not support this administration and its acts against the People of the United States of America. Although I am a senior, I… Read more »

I agree with everyone who says Obama is the worst president ever. But I don’t agree he should be impeached. First if Impeached by the House, he would be tried by a democrat controlled Senate. Chances are very slim they would kick him out. Second, Have you ever heard Joe Biden speak. The man wouldn’t recognize the truth if someone slapped him upside the his head with it. And he would be the president with Obama out. It is a lose-lose situation for the good guys. The best we can hoped for is a repeal of Obamacare after the mid-terms and a conservative president in 2016.

Can you imagine that Senator Durbin “the most Disonest Senator in the Senate” says
the conservitives are just politisizing Bengazi so Hiliry won’t run in 2016.

To: Fred Says, Well said! To answer the question, “has anyone taken real ACTION, I can say this. I cannot afford to donate to all the people trying to take action that but must be funded. However I can write letters to my states representatives and bug the living hell out of them! Which I do almost daily. If you folks want to know what’s going on in the fight against our corrupt government, take a look at “Judicial Watch”. Or email them at JudicalWatch.org. They are quietly fighting the good fights for us in our courts. It cost nothing for anyone to join in and receive their News Publication “From Judicial Watch”. They do accept donations, large or small to help finance the cost of taking the “do no gooders” to court. For $35.00 a year you will receive every publication and updates on the court cases. Hold on… Read more »

Is anyone looking into the type of organized bullying called gangstalking? What can be done to stop this form of harassment?

We will have to see if ‘TEFLON MAN” gets out of this once AGAIN. Nothing seems to stick to this man – not even the blood of the four Americans who perished in Benghazi. I have asked a lot of my friends what they think of Benghazi – and I mostly get blank stares, or one even asked me ; “Who is he?” sigh …… We have become a nation raising video game idiots who would rather watch the Duck Dynasty or Gypsie weddings than pay attention to the state of our country and who is running it. Children in school no longer learn the history lessons we learned. They are being PROGRAMMED to become Progressives and Liberals. Obama was programmed by his parents and caretakers to hate America and all it stood for – and now, being the “Commander in Thief” he has free reign to complete his terror… Read more »

I also wrote AARP and quit their organization due to their backing of Barry Obamas health care program. Ultimately, we all have to ask ourselves “What really is the purpose of the Dems?” The drawbacks of the health care program are obvious, affecting not only each US resident ( legal or illegal ). I suppose we need to address one issue at a time. In my opinion, anyone that writes such a convoluted, hard to understand law that is detrimental to all, except of course for the congress who passes it who are exempt, is being sneaky and covert. These are not the type of people we need for our leaders. In history, the best leaders set a good example for their followers. Indeed, most tried to emulate leadership. Who amongst us today want to be like our current government officials? Or for that matter, who wants their children to… Read more »

The Benghazi consulate was nothing more than a gun-running hub for the CIA to furnish weapons to the Syrian rebels, otherwise known as “The Muslim Brotherhood”. You know, the same terrorists we arm in Egypt. The weapons were loaded on ships, transported to Turkey and then smuggled across the border in to Syria, an act which is not only in violation of international law, but also in violation of a U.S/Russian treaty, thus the cover-up. The gun-running was no secret, but in fact common knowledge in District of Corruption, democrats and republicans alike. And the puppet “mainstream media” was instructed to keep their mouths shut because of the effect it would have on the elections in November. So the bottom line is that this is just another show to deceive the masses into thinking that justice will be done, when in fact, nothing will change and it will be “business… Read more »

Sojourner Truth. You hit the nail on the head. Man is being shown he cannot do it without God’s help. Even the secular progressives will watch their sand castle collapse. It’s beginning to happen now.

Sojourner Truth

The sad fact is that we have come to accept lies as the normal means of doing business. Once they kicked God out of the public schools, truth could be found only in Christian and conservative circles, which have less influence than what is being peddled in our universities and media. Prayer and a serious commitment to evangelism is really our only hope because we are beyond human solutions to the destruction that is overtaking the nation. Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Obamacare, Gay Marriage, a woman’s right to murder her infant children,these are just symptoms of a much deeper moral and spiritual decline to which most of the nation is completely blind.

Lynn Mohr

I do not believe that the majority of Americans have their heads in the sand, I believe they feel, “well, what can we do?” From my point of view I think the first thing is for ALL the media to tell the truth, no matter their personal political views. They have, by reason of taking the job, a responsibility to the American Public, to report truthfully and without prejudice, the news events of the day. We still do have freedom of the press, please lets use it to a truthful advantage. We know that the President lied, we know that Hillary Clinton lied, forget who said what first, the fabrication was spread, now lets make those who spun the untrue yarn, pay! Please start impeachment proceedings. We know Obama has lied for the very beginning. When he was a candidate for the presidency and just starting to appear on T.V.… Read more »

To begin I am now 82 and seen and lived thru a heck of a lot. To begin with I said Obama was a muslim trained and financed to ruin our country from within down to a 3rd world country so they can take us over. I was right. Think about one thing and it is fact. He went to college on a foreign grant and now says he is a naturalized citizen. HEY you can’t have it both ways. Impeach him then charge him with treason and execute him as he did those brave men in Benghazi.

There is now a big rush by Obama to assure that millions of uninsured are enrolled in Medicare by this fall. Obviously the president is attempting to build his legacy. However, he is also working toward pulling down our nation. We need to realized that those currently uninsured will only greatly increase by millions more, if (or when) our government provides a path to citizenshp for 10 or more million people who for the most part have not paid into Medicare.

Larry Wells

Obuma and the people behind him have got to spend a fair amount of time just yukking it up over how easy it was to scam the American citizens. They installed a President that is not a citizen, has no experience what so ever on running anything, a psychopathic liar, gave millions to our enemy Pakistan as one of his first Presidential acts, continually commits dictator action with Executive Action, is spending more money partying and tripping than has ever been, has no money management ability and then somehow after the worst 4 years America has experienced, the massive lies during the campaign, was reelected. They must laugh all the way to the bank. The sad part is neither party is any better, both have voted themselves unbelievable bennies at a time when “we the people” are hurting bad. They have not in anyway held the administration accountable, they have… Read more »

Americans are full-time indoctrinated students of the media and the educational system. Try listening and watching the liberal media to learn the extent of the constant “liberalism diet” being available, and the insidious liberal education being instructed in our schools. The liberals are in a contagious “fever pitch”.but who is behind the indoctrination? Who is behind the manipulation of the best sources of reaching and convincing those too young (but still impressionnable), too busy to notice, or too apathetic to evaluate present political motives? Masters of quick sound bites, the social media, IT and “key button” phrases will win. By the time the lies are exposed, it will be too late. As Carney says “It’s old news” and as Hillary Clinton says “What difference fdoes it make?” They simply stall long enough for the public to be distracted by another news event and their misdeeds are again unaccounted for..

Adolph Hitler believed that if you tell a lie (even a big whopper) long enough and often enough people will believe it. The American people have been lied to so often about everything that they have become jaded and desensitized resulting in apathy and acceptance. The main stream media is largely at fault for standing behind the fraud and deception of the this administration. Add to that a society of freeloaders and dumbed down youth and we get 4 more years of Obama. Probably to be followed by 8 years of Hilary. There seems to be more of them than there are of us.

We have a man in the White House who does not deserve to be there! He was elected the first time because of all the “GOOD” he promised he would do. He did nothing good, except have a beer with Joe the plumber! Why he was re elected I will never know! Obama care is a farce. Anyone who thinks otherwise is one brick short of a full load. Even the supreme court said it was a TAX! Then came Benghazi, on 9-11. Everyone who was over the age of 10 when 9-11-01 happened knew that Benghazi was a terrorist attack. How did all the “Brain Trust” folks in Washington think it was anything else but that! They knew, but it was “ELECTION TIME” and this would hurt Obama’s chances at re election should the American people know that he was caught with his feet propped up on the desk… Read more »

As I read through the comments posted I have to wonder if the majority of the people writing here are in total control of their faculties. Ranting about a fictional person named Obummer, calling for impeachment, and yelling[using all capital letters] are not indications of a controlled statement. We, all conservatives and libertarians alike, should be uniting and searching for candidates at the local and state levels to repel the progressives and their socialist agenda. We have to be willing to get off our butts and do the grass roots organizing that the progressives do, we need to convince the minority voters who vote for progressives that all they are doing is assuring that they will be forever in debt to people who don’t believe they are capable of being succesful without the governments handouts. Affirmitive action is in no way an affirmation of anything except a way of saying… Read more »

No question the liars in our Government which includes White House, Senate, and congress
are finally getting pinned down. The inept elected individuals are only politically motivated to
“feather their own nests (money, sex, and power) and are not concerned about the
country America, and its citizens.
The ingredient missing in our elected officials is HONESTY. Even the IRS is now trapped
in corruption.
It is time for the American people do what they do best. Route the idiots that have been
voted into office, ask God to return to America and halt this post Christian era we find ourselves in
and start over. Tar and feathers appears to be an option.
Our beloved America can be resilient if we flush the commode that has been created in Washington

Obama’s past associations, his inexperience in leadership, his very thin resume as a “Community Organizer” certainly did not qualify him to be POTUS. It was all there but people are like sheep being led to the slaughter. They just went along with his lofty rhetoric and believed everything he said.

He was not properly vetted and therefore we have this horrible administration not just once but twice. I also blame the liberal media for putting him there. He is nothing but a puppet for George Soros and the far left. I just hope that soon even the left wing media will finally wake up. If they turn on him and start telling the truth Obama and his minions will be toast.
