Allen West Ducks Into the Punch


For the last few weeks I’ve been making a running joke out of “Such and such happened; clearly a transparent attempt by Obama to distract attention from Benghazi.” Allen West, however, is not in on the joke. He’s seriously making that exact argument about the kidnapping of nearly 300 girls in Nigeria.

I find it interesting that everyone (including the First Lady) is now all up in arms about Boko Haram and their jihadist actions. After all, we reported on the kidnappings of the girls quite some time ago – this isn’t breaking news…

So why all the attention now?

Remember the movie with Robert Deniro and Dustin Hoffman called “Wag the Dog?” Funny thing, that film was released just before the Clinton-Lewinsky kabuki dance and the infamous pharmaceutical factory bombing in Sudan by President Clinton (and by the way, Monica is back in the limelight thanks to an article in Vanity Fair – but I digress – or maybe not).

Are we witnessing an Obama “Wag the Dog” moment with Boko Haram in Nigeria? I say yes.

Consider all the scandals facing the Obama administration, especially Benghazi and the Select Committee, which Rep. Nancy Pelosi referred to as a “political stunt.”

I think this is obviously a transparent attempt to distract attention away from the fact that Allen West has nothing serious to say about this or any other issue.

    Here is the really frightening thing about Benghazi – when the 2016 campaigning starts in earnest, we are going to miss it. Pretty soon we’ll be wasted deep in the tedious mud of republicans trying to say “I don’t like government more than you don’t like goverment…but I won’t take away your benefits” while democrats find ways to spend 2 hours saying nothing at all. And we’re going to sigh, and say to each other, “remember when they just whined about Benghazi?”

    ‘Wasted deep’ instead of waist deep. Unintentional (but probably freudian) slip.

    Actually, I think this is a transparent attempt at a false flag operation by Allen West, who is secretly in the employ of Obummer, to distract from the attempt to nuke DC and kill 280 million Americans …

    Spread it around! …

    …the infamous pharmaceutical factory bombing in Sudan by President Clinton…

    You mean his attempt to kill Osama Bin Laden? You know, the thing you criticized him for not doing?

    Also, what would it take to convince Mr. West to duck into a wood chipper?

    One of us is misremembering. The story was that the factory was making ingredients for VX gas for Al Qaeda.

    The right wing’s obsession with minor scandals and pseudoscandals is right out the Clinton years. I remember how much right-wingers disregarded their cherished principles to get worked up over their favorite scandals back then. Like the firing of the travel agents. Right wingers claim to be opposed to government waste and to support the absolute sovereignty of employers over workplaces. But here they were, defending government waste and being anti-employer-sovereignty. They seemed like a stereotype of labor unionists, of all things. About Clinton’s wars, they turned into pacifists, and they would normally dismiss pacifism as anything from naive to being duped by America’s enemies to outright treason.

    He’s got the whole Wag the Dog/Lewinsky scandal thing completely arse-about-face…

    The Clintons and their Beltway Insider pals (who are 100% in thrall to The zionist Controlled hollywood liberal elite) plunged the entire country into a political sh1tstorm simply to promote a crappy movie Designed to undermine the JUDEO-CHRISTIAN foundations of AMERICA. That’s the REAL scandal!

    #WAKEUPSHEEPLE!!!

    Contrary to wingnut opinion, I’m betting that Obama and his team are probably very pleased every time a Teabagger screams “Benghazi!!!” If they keep that up through the next election, the Dems will sweep the House, Senate, and White House.

    Bengazi? Something happened in Bengazi? Hey West, as you would say about god creating the universe, were you there? Have you ever even been to Bengazi? No such place.

    Obviously, the Chibok mass rape hoax was staged by the same FX team which gave us Sandy Hook, 9/11, the Apollo landings and the Zapruder film.

    Don’t believe anything you see on tv from now on featuring droughts, floods, storms, or glacier melts – it all comes from a secret supercomputer run by Steven Spielberg for the CFR.

    Another hypothesis which hasn’t received much attention comes from a usually-well-informed-on-Nigeria source within FTB. (Warning: not nearly as much fun as throwing rhetorical pies at the Honorable Allen West…)

    Modusoperandi: That’s what They(tm) wanted you to believe… It was actually the headquarters of an international gang of birth certificate forgers.
