Gingrich: Senator told me networks may have White House emails commanding counterterrorism group to stand down on Benghazi rescue

October 31, 2012

Apparently this is true, there are at least two network outlets that have the emails, that tell our troops to stand down and they come from the White House DSA’s office.

You didn’t think Obama would want a paper trail, which is why the DSA sent the military orders to stand down.

On Tuesday night’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” on the Fox News Channel, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that major news networks might have secret emails proving that the White House canceled plans to assist the besieged U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

Gingrich said that the bombshell emails could be revealed within the next two days.

“There is a rumor — I want to be clear, it’s a rumor — that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser’s office telling a counterterrorism group to stand down,” Gingrich said. “But they were a group in real-time trying to mobilize marines and C-130s and the fighter aircraft, and they were told explicitly by the White House stand down and do nothing. This is not a terrorist action. If that is true, and I’ve been told this by a fairly reliable U.S. senator, if that is true and comes out, I think it raises enormous questions about the president’s role, and Tom Donilon, the National Security Adviser’s role, the Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, who has taken it on his own shoulders, that he said don’t go. And that is, I think, very dubious, given that the president said he had instructions they are supposed to do everything they could to secure American personnel.”

After noting that the rumor, if true, would have a substantial impact on the presidential election, Gingrich pointed to another possible “October surprise” in the coming days.

“The other big story, I think, that is going to break is on corruption and extraordinary waste in the solar power grants and direct involvement by the Obama White House, including the president, in the solar panel grants involving billions of dollars, and I suspect that’s going to break Wednesday and Thursday of this week,” Gingrich added.

Up to 32 Americans were denied military assistance at the consulate and CIA safe house.

The few media that are covering the abandonment of Americans in Benghazi have focused — and not without merit — on the four Americans that perished over the course of the seven-hour battle.

Ambassador Chris Stevens and diplomat Sean Smith were not the only Americans in the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, however, a fact some of us have lost sight of in our focus on the dead. Nor were Glen Doherty and Ty Woods the only casualties among the forces that disobeyed orders from the Obama administration not to rescue the consulate staff.

When terrorists surrounded the consulate at approximately 8:00 p.m. Benghazi time with 150 men and “technicals” — pickup trucks with heavy machine guns, bearing the logo of Ansar al-Shariah — Stevens and Smith were part of a larger American delegation numbering somewhere between 7-24.

We’re forced to say “approximately” because it has been difficult to determine through media accounts the exact number of Americans inside the consulate.

Boats and Trains…

While most Americans prepare for Halloween tonight, more than 6 million people living up and down the East Coast face another nightmarish day without power and heat, and the daunting task of rebuilding lives and homes as death toll from Sandy rises to 61 and an estimated $50 billion in combined economic losses and property damage, as debris is seen scattered over an N.J. Transit railroad bridge in South Amboy.

Marchionne’s letter on Jeep production in U.S.

October 31, 2012

Somebody is shading the truth…

Here’s what the relevant portion of Marchionne’s memo, published in full at the Detroit News  actually says:

We also are investing to improve and expand our entire U.S. operations, including our Jeep facilities. The numbers tell the story:

– We will invest more than $1.7 billion to develop and produce the next generation Jeep SUV, the successor of the Jeep Liberty — including $500 million directly to tool and expand our Toledo Assembly Complex and will be adding about 1,100 jobs on a second shift by 2013.

– At our Jefferson North Assembly Plant, where we build the Jeep Grand Cherokee, we have created 2,000 jobs since June 2009 and have invested more than $1.8 billion.

– In Belvidere, where we build two Jeep models, we have added two shifts since 2009 resulting in an additional 2,600 jobs.

With the increase in demand for our vehicles, especially Jeep branded vehicles, we have added more than 11,200 U.S. jobs since 2009. Plants producing Jeep branded vehicles alone have seen the number of people invested in the success of the Jeep brand grow to more than 9,300 hourly jobs from 4,700. This will increase by an additional 1,100 as the Liberty successor, which will be produced in Toledo, is introduced for global distribution in the second quarter of 2013.

Global Warming Goes Poof: Wind farms don’t work.

It’s Good Riddance To Wind Farms – One Of The Most Dangerous Delusions Of Our Age | The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF)

The significance of yesterday’s shock announcement by our Energy Minister John Hayes that the Government plans to put a firm limit on the building of any more onshore windfarms is hard to exaggerate. On the face of it, this promises to be the beginning of an end to one of the greatest and most dangerous political delusions of our time.

Unclear on the concept: Darrell West, a warmist director at the Brookings Institution, attempts to use three feet of October snow in West Virginia as evidence that CO2 is overheating the planet

Sandy reminds us of climate change and other forgotten campaign issues –

With flooding in NYC and 3 feet of snow in W VA, isn’t it time for candidates to address climate change and extreme weather,” tweeted Darrell West, a director at the Brookings Institution, a public policy think tank.

Let me just say if you think this storm was bad, you don’t read much history.

The Layoff Bomb

October 31, 2012

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported last Tuesday that employers issued 1,316 “mass layoff actions” (affecting 50 workers or more) in September; more than 122,000 workers were affected overall. USA Today financial reporter Matt Krantz wrote that “(m)uch of the recent layoff activity is connected to what’s been the slowest period of earnings growth since the third quarter of 2009.” Some necessary restructuring is underway in response to the stagnant European economy. But more and more U.S. businesses are putting the blame — bravely and squarely — right where it belongs: on the obstructionist policies and regulatory schemes of the blame-shifter-in-chief.

MSNBC Entertains Possibility Of Delaying Elections Due To Hurricane Destruction

MSNBC Entertains Possibility Of Delaying Elections Due To Hurricane Destruction

ANDREA MITCHELL: We’ve seen in the past situations where power is not restored, in our own region here, for days, for more than a week — for ten days. What happens if we get to election day and they don’t have power? Which you need for many of these election booths, for the voting booths, which you need for people to get to the polls. Is there any precedent for doing something such as postponing a national election?

CHUCK TODD: Well, look, elections are run by state and local officials. The federal government does not run the elections as it is. Look, there is some precedence to this. During 9/11, on 9/11, was the New York City mayoral race and they delayed everything. You know, it would have to be up to a local authority to do that but that local authority — I think, look, you’re going to be getting into provisional ballot issues.

I think — I think that that’s the more likely scenario. You don’t postpone the day itself, but maybe you expand the types of ballots, maybe you’re more lenient on checking people in, but forcing provisional votes so it’s going to take longer to verify the voters and all of those things. I think that that’s the most likely scenario that you would have some localities that would have to move, change positions, maybe even delay, but that would seem the least likely option. But to come up with some way to deal with what you just said now, if you have an election voting machine and no power, do you deal with that?

Somebody needs a hug…
