Greta Van Susteren: Obama ‘Tried Very Hard’ To Discourage Fox News From Reporting About Benghazi

Hey, it’s the Chicago Way™, right?

On her blog, Greta Van Susteren, who hosts a 7PM news show on Fox News Channel, recounted how the Obama administration has repeatedly attempted to punish Fox News for its reporting about Benghazi. Apparently, the administration hoped that its retaliatory efforts would prevent the most popular name in cable news from reporting about the subject.

It didn’t work.

Van Susteren recounted the various strong arm tactics used by members of the President’s team. She claimed that the administration “tried very hard” to discourage reporting about the terrorist attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi in September, 2012.

First, she wrote: “In the early days after Benghazi, the State Department omitted only Fox News Channel from its conference call to all the media when it claimed to be answering questions about Benghazi for the media.”

Second, she noted that the CIA would later provide a briefing, for all networks except Fox, about Benghazi.

She also wrote:

And there were many times in the months and years since September 2012 when Obama Administration officials would make comments to suggest that Fox was just doing the Benghazi reporting for political reasons. The Administration was doing what it could to deter and demean the Fox News Channel investigation. They did not want to give us the facts — so their strategy was to attempt to belittle and demean our reporting.

The kicker: Van Susteren claims that a “friend” of hers in the administration attempted to get her to tell her colleague, Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin, to stop her reporting on Benghazi. This so-called “friend” claimed that Griffin would “ruin her career” over her reporting.

Wow.

Van Susteren also took the administration to task for attempting to claim that the terrorist attack in Benghazi was a spontaneous response to a video as opposed to a planned effort.

    good job FOX news

    • David Dunn

      bull shit news.. there is a woman in Denver was hurt bad.by 5 Islamic pigs.where is the news on that

      • Vance P. Frickey

        The news director in Fox’s Denver affiliate is pretty much conformist with the rest of the Denver news media (the hiring line for writers begins well left of center and the editor of “Westword,” Denver’s “alternative media weekly” with advertising revenues almost completely drawn from ads for clubs, dope stores, escort services and masseusses is pretty much the dean of the local journalism community).

        That being said, how do the five Islamic pigs get past the ushers in that mosque south of town? Does someone just hand prayer rugs out to them in the parking lot?

      • fafhrd

        Islamic pigs? Isn’t that a contradiction?
        I don’t live in the Denver area, is there some reason why you think this should have made national news?

        • Reneé Kunkel

          It did make the news. I just read about it. Other than the details of the attack that may hold them back from reporting about it during family viewing hours- I would say that it does take time for them to make the rounds of other news sources, check out the facts the best they can before taking up the story as well.

          • merrily

            Damn, you mean they have to vet it for truth? Teapublican’ts can’t allow that!

          • brianjconway

            Yeah. they are too busy making up imaginary scandals like Fast & Furious, Benghazi, Phony Iran nuke deal, IRS political harassment, NRA spying. Allowing terrorist connected people into the country, ObogusCare, Unlawful Executive orders. Shall we go on?

          • Renellin

            You’re saying then that none of the items you just mentioned are important, don’t exist, or were done right?

          • brianjconway

            Calm down. See my response above. I was being sarcastic towards the dem/libs who are trying to sell that the scandals are made up. LOL

          • Renellin

            Well, jeez. It’s okay, the smelling salts worked.

          If an Islamic woman had been attacked by say some Christians do you think that would make national news?

          • fafhrd

            Yes, if only for the fact of Christians attacking anyone.

        Do not use a Capital P when discussing Obamas presidency….IT IS A FRAUD. He is not even an American! Just had a ciommunist mother and grandparents. lHis father was a drunkard from Kenya and that is where he is from as well!! He is a wanna be Dictator!!!

        • Capt Tee

          Do you believe in a Sovereign God?
          Read the Book of Job lately? Do you think anyone could steal an election and surprise God?
          Do you think God could be using the Obama Administration to get us stubborn Americans to repent of worshiping (and putting our trust in) everything else but Him?

  • osamaba bin mooch michelle

    GOOOOOOOOOO FOX!!!

  • C.B.

    very transparent administration. NOT. if the White House can’t control what they want the public to know, they implement tactics to smear you in some form or manner. I wonder why no other reporters have the guts to investigate on any of this (the truth about the Benghazi mishap & the cover up)?

    • tammy

      Soros own most of the Media. The news now, except for a very few sources, is controlled by the government. Soros is one of BO’s handlers. He also controls most of the news, many businesses, and has stated he is here to help BO tank our economy. BTW he is on the last step. He just invested heavily in futures, betting our economy will tanks. When it is time to do it, he will make trillions

  • madgrandma

    Thanks for having intestinal fortitude Greta!

    • GoneApe

      This president is well beyond deserving of impeachment. It is ashamed they stole the last election.

      • mike cumpston

        the didn’t steel it. It was given to them by a bunch of fecundating idiots who are too stupid to vote.

        • Renellin

          I think they did steal it. I think they voted obo a population that doesn’t care. Don’t tell me the dealers on the street corners took time out of their busy schedule to get to the booth. They probably didn’t even know about the election. Or the homeless guy is going to come out from under his bridge or cardboard box? He doesn’t know what day it is!

          • mike cumpston

            well maybe. but i know at least one baby boomer/gun owner who voted for him because ” Ah thank he’s really gonn Hayulp me.” He is in his selfish entitlement mode believing that the far left wants to help “The! Elderly!” The college- age children voted for him in droves= at least in the first term and I know one politically indifferent couple who voted for him because it bothered them that George Bush mispronounced words. There are a lof of people like this who think the country is too big to fail and that communism is sophisticated. They believe that history began on the day they were born and will fall into a black hole on the day they die- or more likely rise up to live in the Big Rock Candy Mountains with Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, Elvis and Jesus.

          • Renellin

            Man that media biz really gets to them. George Bush had a Texas accent, but he really didn’t talk much. Obama thinks there’s 57 states, Hawaii is in Indonesia, he doesn’t know what states border his ‘other’ home state of Illinois, He pronounces corps like corpses, but none of that matters because republicans have a war on women and they’re racists. *sigh*

          • Lilys

            WHAT are you talking about? HW13568 is talking about OBAMA, who spelled respect “RSPECT” while TALKING (not typing) about Aretha Franklin and her song…and there was nothing heard about it from the media (who went nuts over Bush’s mispronunciations and Quayle’s “potatoe” error)…HW is HARDLY a moron, as you keep calling him.

          • loupgarous

            Tell it to the thousand reporters who squawked about Dan Quayle spelling “potato” “potatoe” and drawing bad inferences about his mental abilities. Sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

            This follows on the heels of Obama’s belonging to a very openly racist church whose very outspokenly racist pastor was, in Obama’s words, “my close spiritual advisor.” Tell me that a single Presidential candidate since Obama’s fellow Democrat Woodrow Wilson would have been allowed to get away with that level of severe racism in his background by our very openly hypocritical press. Suddenly, racism is no big deal when the press’s favored Presidential candidate has it all over his background.

          • mtncrusr

            Ha. The Dems and unions had two weeks of early voting to gather all the dopers and street dwellers and feed/pay/drive them to the polls. Plus they helped the senior homes to vote for Barry, not to mention the cemetery. Early voting must end.

          • thtom

            ROMNEY lost by over 130 electoral votes.That means a lot of the votes he got were from republicans.There are only about 38% registered democrats.Those other votes came from people other than the ones you describe.On the surface they may be Republicans,but when they vote they think about there social security,Medicare,and their retirement.If the republicans get there way,there want be any of these.They haven`t forgotten President Bush wanted to privatize S.Security,give seniors a15,000 vouture and kill Medicare.

          • tammy

            Many Republicans are RINO’s and are working toward the same agenda as the socialist/communist Democrats

          • tammy

            They had people going into nursing homes and getting the people fill out ballots with their help or if they could not do it, they did it for them

          • Renellin

            They could do the same thing in any drug neighborhood/crack house. Offer whatever the price of ‘a bag’ to anyone who will sign away their vote, then absentee vote them, or just, you know, keep them in your car until the vote gets close.

            Those are the people the Dems are going to hurt the most. Obama already told Medicare, they are going to be taking much of their care away. They are going to rob Medicare again for ACA in order to give all the illegals medical.

        • jimmie redding

          No. They stole it by multiple voting. Dead people voting. All sorts of fraud. It would help if all registered voters would vote.

          socialist in charge. King Obama! Do you bow when you see his picture?
          His obama care made my health insurance go up $1200.00 a year. He has done nothing to help anyone in my family. Prices are up, and as far as bin laden is concerned, your cowardly
          president did NOT give the go ahead to kill him. A commander
          in charge did that, but your “I am the greatest” took the credit.

The Dems demanded the wars. BO voted for them along with Hillary and all the Dems. They have proven only 10% of the uninsured have signed up for healthcare, 40 million is a lie….Impeachable offense;;;;giving weapons and money to Al Qaida (an enemy of our country) That is impeachable. He is also supporting other terrorist organizations ie Hamas, Hezbola,(sp) the Muslim brotherhood etc I expect your check in the mail. Also the left are the racists. The right doesn’t even think race, it is you guys who are always talking about color, that is racist. The only stupid ignorant post I’ve seen is yours. Are you looking in the mirror????

          Huh? What? Saving the economy? Your proof on that one?? Clinton signed the law insurance companies couldn’t turn away people for pre-existing conditions. Captured Osama bin Laden? Really? I thought the SEALS did. IF they captured him at all. It was a distraction. Send me your paycheck then. He ordered troops and attacked Libya without the approval of Congress. THAT is an impeachable offense, and several of his executive orders circumventing Congress. Next!

        UKRAIN VENUZEALLA has a great idea, utube Civil war

      • Magik13

        Obama rescued the nation from the Republican created Great Recession when under Republican rule, the USA was losing 800,000 jobs per month. The economy has in fact been gaining jobs for over 5 years straight. Obama ended the 2 useless Republican quagmires in the Middle East… both wars the result of the always faulty republican facilties of perception. No one identifying as Republican perceives reality correctly but through the distorted perception of their inner soul disease… which is narcissism. Narcissism is the reason Republicans are heartless and completely lacking compassion and good will.

        • DeMarquise Elkins

          It was Bill Clinton who signed deregulation that caused the financial crisis and subprime mortgage lending in the first place.

          • Jerry Serious

            And Jimmy Carter started it with the CRA in 1977. 5 presidents and 15 sessions of congress had their fingers in that pie. When Countrywide met with Fannie Mae in 1999 to protest the forced subprime lending that Clinton approved, they were given $300 million to go away and make more loans. This was at the time when Fannie CEO Frank Raines was caught cooking the books so he could get a huge bonus. He left with a golden parachute and some $50 million in compensation. He was rewarded for his crimes by being named Obama’s first economic advisor. John McCain tried in vain to get Fannie Mae audited and to change the subprime lending requirements in 2003 but he was branded a racist by – I think – Sheila Jackson Lee. Chris Dodd, Barney Frank and Barack Obama took huge sums from Fannie Mae to keep the subprime loans going. Obama passed 98 other Senators in donations from Fannie Mae in just two years (only Dodd had more and it took him 30 years to get it). Oh yeah, and the final two years of Bush’s presidency were his worst fiscally (running the highest deficits), and they were the ones where the budgets were controlled by a Democrat majority in the House and Senate. Of course, the Senate has abdicated it’s responsibility (and Obama has allowed them to continue to do so. It’s planned – this way when historians look at what a fiscal disaster his presidency has been he can say he never signed a budget b/c the Senate never ratified one.) and stopped ratifying budgets in 2009 so people can be forgiven if they forget that the President doesn’t set the budget. So in essence, Obama ‘inherited a mess’ from himself. But yeah, let’s blame the GOP – who, by the way, are the only party in recent times to balance the budget (in 1996) but Dems are quick to give Clinton credit for that when all he did was sign the thing.

          • Jonathan Rudd

            Exactly!! The Republicans are the ones who balanced the budget, but yes, like you said, they give Clinton the credit. Here’s a civic lesson for all you that don’t know it. The president is executive, the House and Senate, legislative, which holds the purse strings.All the President does is sign into law. Clinton did nothing. I still like Magik’s claim to 800,000 jobs lost a month. What a riot!!! LOLOLOL!!!

            He who signs it into law owns it.

          • Jonathan Rudd

            Yeah. Right.

          • VividVick

            Clinton balanced the budget. The last good economies fell under democratic leadership. Rethuglicans are criminials against the US and will go down in history as such. You are an idiot.

          • Bob Marly

            thug, lol, you described the Democrat party in 1 word!! Rite on Ass munch!!

          • Jonathan Rudd

            He can’t balance the budget. That is Congress’ job. Learn your civics. Just like a liberal. When they know they are wrong, they revert to name calling. Childish.

          • JungleBoi Tee

            Be careful when pointing that finger – the President submits a budget and Congress approves/denies. Like it or not, Clinton handed a budget surplus to bush. Bush’s cutting of revenues and increasing expenditures and doing away with PAYGO were a recipe for economic disaster. The debt started goin up when it had been going down.

          • Jonathan Rudd

            No pointing of the finger JungleBoi. He might have submitted it, but Congress are the ones who add and subtract from it, and then send it to him to sign. He CAN veto it. Congress controls the purse strings.

            Yeah,and let not forget it was Newt at Speaker’s position who did that!!

          • Kent Salmen

            You forgot where President Bush warned of the problems and Barney Frank lied and said there was no problems. I guess that makes it all Bush’s fault in the mindless of a Democrat.

            Obama marches to a different drum than most….He hates his job, hates America, hates Christianity, hates decency,loves to promote dependency, at a time of crisis he’s out there campaigning instead of leading….why would he ever want to be the POTUS??? He’s a thug Chicagoan politician who is hell-bent on plunging the US into the worst way EVER!!!

          • Bob Marly

            Dumb Ass , people are blaming Clinton and Gingrich and Carter, and Bush in this post!! Incredible how stupid people in this country really are!! IDIOT!! By the way Obama sucks ass!!!

          • Jerry Whidby

            Lady I truly do not hate Obama. It is still my right as of today to voice my opinion about my representatives. When you make movies like “Death of a President” or books like “The Assassination of George W. Bush: A Love Story” then you have no room to throw stones I have never seen hatred displayed as strongly as what the peace loving Democrats showed for Bush.

          • [email protected]

            so it Clinton’s fault? How about it was all the people who bought houses and knew they could not afford? Why not them? If they all paid their mortgages we would not be having this conversation. That is whose fault all the Fannie and Freddie problems came from. Clinton took a chance that the Americans would pay their bills. The Fool!.

          • Chris Wotell

            Every buyer who leveraged his future to cash in on the housing boom shares the blame. However, it was the government that dangled the carrot, and those who dangled the carrot for personal and professional gains are the true culprits. It was very difficult for people to watch their neighbors play the system, make huge gains and not get involved themselves. The outcome was inevitable the moment they created the no doc loans with zero to little down. Once started, there was no way that a politician was going to risk his future by squashing the juggernaut of the housing boom. Ultimately we created massive debt that was passed down to the middle class and mitigated for the banking industry. Loans were called to clean up balance sheets and strengthen the banking community all at the expense of the unfortunate middle and upper middle class, the ones that had something to lose.

          • [email protected]

            Yes if they really did it for gain, but I believe they really thought people would pay their bills. We were military so we bought and sold 15 houses over the two decades. The first house took pages and pages of paper work the last was a one sheet form. I thought also that if people could get a house it would help them and give them something to cling to. I was wrong. Too many people bought house they could not afford and way too many did not pay for them. this is what reslly happened. The USA Gov gambled and lost.

          • [email protected]

            I agree with the ” WE” did it. ” I do blame the gov for waiting too long to act.

          • [email protected]

            no one forced anyone to bite. Pay for your own stuff.

          • tammy

            The government assured those people that they could afford those houses. Most people have difficulty figuring out how far their money will stretch. They took poor people who could not possibly afford the houses and encouraged them to buy, knowing they would lose them.

          • JungleBoi Tee

            Replace the word government with the word lenders and you nailed it. The lenders knew they could sell these accurately-named liars loans immediately so they made them.

          • [email protected]

            I must admit after working for hud, I think you are right. If you say you will pay a certain amount, then you should pay. Why should you be allowed to live somewhere you actually could not afford? Unfortunately many did this and we tax payers paid the price.

          • JungleBoi Tee

            and the lenders knew these borrowers could not pat but did not care because they sell the loans immediately, thereby capturing a nice profit and relinquishing the risk.

          • Jerry Whidby

            They were forced by law to give people loans who would not have qualified for them before. Just another example of government involvement making things worse.

          • JungleBoi Tee

            Cite the law, please.

          • Jerry Whidby
          • Kent Salmen

            And we rewarded then for bad behavior with a bailout!

          • JungleBoi Tee

            Yes, we did. I was against it at the time but since then:
            The Treasury has been earning a return on most of the money invested or loaned. So far, it has earned $265B. When those revenues are taken into account, the government has realized a $41.3B profit as of Aug. 12, 2014.

          • Kent Salmen

            I think your confusing the banks that were “forced” to take the money compared to Fannie & Freddie who has “lost” money. The other banks not only paid back the loans but paid early because of all the strings attached.

          • JungleBoi Tee

            The total amount invested in Fannie and Freddie so far is$187B.

            The Treasury has been earning a return on its investments, which has resulted in a profit. So far the companies have paid$213B in dividends to the Treasury.

            213 paid -187 lent = 26 billion in profit to Treasury

          • Jonathan Rudd

            And I guess you believe everything you read the govt puts out. Cool. I have a bridge to sell ya.

          • JungleBoi Tee

            Ya, no point in talking to you.

          • Jonathan Rudd

            Of course not. I don’t cow tail to your ideology.

          • JungleBoi Tee

            That’s not the problem. The issue is that, when presented with facts, instead of refuting them, you joke. If you call stating the truth my ideology, so be it.

          • JungleBoi Tee

            Right? But he did leave a greater revenues than expenses – and we were on a solid track to serious National Debt reduction. Sadly, Bush Jr’s Congress discarded George HW Bush-era PAYGO, dramatically lowered revenues and increased expenses through the wazoo. As for mortgages, there is a bit of shared culpability to go around. Yes, the borrower shouldve paid the mortgage HOWEVER the lenders knew the loans would be sold and made loans that had no business either. They assume risk – that’s why you pay interest.

          • Jerry Whidby

            Great writeup on what caused the housing bubble http://russp.us/subprime.htm

          • JungleBoi Tee

            Ill take a look.

          • Kent Salmen

            I vaguely remember that loan terms were loosened to help get blacks into home ownership. Then terms were so loosened than Fannie and Freddie in conjunction with lying home buyers falsified loan documents getting people loans that didn’t deserve them all while shoving tens of millions in bonuses in their pockets. Who made up the boards of Fannie & Freddie…Democrats. When Bush warned of problems it was Barney Frank the pole-smookin goofball of the democrat party who lied through his teeth to cover for his friends. Then after the collapse, he and Dodd crafted a bill to make like they were the ones cleaning up a mess they created covering for their corrupt friends.

          • MAD HATTER

        • DeMarquise Elkins

          Massively spiking the deficit via bailouts and interventions can only give people the impression of an improving economy for so long. Japan tried that after their housing bubble, and got mean reversion and then stagnation. You are only correct about mean reversion.

          • tammy

            The Fed is pouring billions of dollars into the economy. It is artificially keeping it up. Once they stop, the economy goes bankrupt Soros, BO’s buddy, says he is going to tank the economy and we will wake up one morning and there will be no more America. He just invested heavily on futures, that the US economy will tank. I got to go get some things done, before he does it. You guys all hate the Koch Brothers, but they are just a distraction. They are boy scouts next to Soros. Soros is one evil dude and BO’s most often visitor to the WH. He also bought up most of the news stations, so now most news is Gov. Sanctioned. Just like most dictatorships, you only hear what they want you to hear.

            Spoken by a spiritually awakened and conscious human being. Conservatives are fear based and are the least evolved people on the planet.

            Yes, I can be a Democrat and a Conservative. It’s called an old Democrat. The Democrat party you probably serve is more socialist/communistic. Sorry. Not going there.

          • tammy

            Definitely not a Democrat. I am a Conservative Independent. I believe in everything the libs despise, God, liberty, small gov, self reliance, our military, family and country etc. I have met a few God fearing Dems, but can not understand how they can believe in a party that is against God. The party that threw God out of their platform. The party that pushes immorality. If you are an old time Dem, maybe it is time you rethink what you are backing. That party no longer exists, the progressives have taken over. They say the right things, but their actions do not back up their words. Both parties have their problems, but right now the Dems have let the Progressives take over. I hate to admit, but voting for the least bad has become the norm.

You will likely get an aid to do your care and give medicine. Good luck with that. And Obama said, a nurse may have to see you because there will not be enough doctors. Nurses are not trained to be doctors. They are trained to take orders from doctors. And Jungle, Obama owns the insurance companies. He has them in a throat hold, they can not do anything that his minion do not allow. On our way to socialized medicine.

            Sorry but freedom doesn’t rally around socialism, laziness, or irresponsibility.

          • JungleBoi Tee

            Freedom is an abstract concept that does not “rally” – you are just throwing words together that you do not understand after being scared that someone might get some of yours. My point remains, those on the R no longer put country before party. Not because they are “freedom lovers” but because they are opportunists who know that they can play off your fears for a win.

          • Kent Salmen

            Sorry, but as a nation we are 18Trillion in debt. Someday someone is going to want paid. Since the government has artificially forced interest rates to zero it is still manageable but when interest rates climb it becomes 10 times worse. There is no freedom without personal responsibility. Yes, freedom doesn’t rally as I know. Freedom better said is not associated with socialism, laziness, or irresponsibility. If you are not concerned with the debt of this nation and what it means then you are a fool! I’m not worried about “R” I am a conservative. Comparing R to D is little difference with R being the lesser of two evils.

          • JungleBoi Tee

            I started crying that I am too conservative to be a republican anymore in ’03 due to the blatant disregard for fiscal responsibility. Your answer was flip – and full of FOX-style fear mongering. Your focus is not on the top expenditures. You wanna talk turkey about the debt, then you should start in the budget and go from largest to smallest. As for spending alone-go look at what it is as a function of GDP right now. http://www.usgovernmentspending.com/us_20th_century_chart.html I have a nseaky suspicion youre going to be surprised.
            The refusal of these disloyal pricks who obstructed the legally-elected President has NOTHING to do with freedom and everything to do with hate.

          • Kent Salmen

            Sit down your crack pipe as I didn’t say anything in regards to 03. I don’t need Fox to think but since you can’t you ought to try watching as you might learn something. I don’t give a crap about GDP as it has nothing to do with the skyrocketing debt. Under Bush it ballooned and under Obama it ballooned again so why hasn’t your GDP numbers stopped it if they are so important… Because it is BS! Your welfare president is nothing more than a socialist POS who not only had control of the White House but the Senate and House which in case you didn’t know are the three branched of controlling government for the first two years of office and yet couldn’t do anything competent. Oh wait, I forgot, we got Obamacare the biggest joke of the century. Yes, all crafted by the dimwits you bow too for you daily handouts.

          • JungleBoi Tee

            I said that *I* started crying foul about finances in ’03 – but I dont care to have a discussion with you or anyone who cannot discuss the issue on its merits without lowering the discourse to personal attacks or thinks it makes any sense to express themselves the way that you do.

            First off thank you for your service to our country. I really do appreciate your sacrifices. We did lose twice. I do not agree with some of Obama’s policies, but I debate those issues respectfully. I do believe he won twice because of his skin color. How else would you explain the record turn out for first time black voters. http://tinyurl.com/d47kdbr We aren’t hating on the president being half black. It is the shift toward government dependency that bothers some, and others strongly oppose other issues. Sweety I do not know how to approach your mistrust for our side. Obviously you assume we are all bigots. Telling you that I wish Condoleezza Rice was our president would probably make you roll your eyes, but I do. Read her Wiki, she is an impressive lady. It amazes me what the so called non-racist got away with when it came to her. http://tinyurl.com/nkn4ak6 I could care less where Obama was born. His mother is a citizen, and that makes him one too. Jimmy Carter is a great humanitarian, but a failure as a president. People have called him the worst president ever. Bush had books and movies made about assassinating him while he was president. Criticism comes with the job. People probably use kid gloves with Obama because he is black. To me that’s the real insult.

            Sorry, but being black has nothing to do with it. Obama is a clueless unqualified president. Fortunately there were even more clueless welfare people pulling a lever for a piece of free cheese. I could see people voting for him the first time but the second time there was no excuse.

          • JungleBoi Tee

            Ya – not so much.

          Are you for real!?? I mean, really??!! You can’t possibly be this stupid! The dems VOTED for the wars, REMEMBER?! They (hillary, john kerry, etc. etc. etc.) made speeches about having to get rid of sadam! obama ended NOTHING. He just brought the troops home, and left all the military equipment there for the terrorists to use. My neighbor’s dog could have done better.

            That is what we do. It is the the stupid philosophy of Colin Powell with his” you break it you bought it Bullsh1t! That is what has killed most of our troops. Must did not want to occupy these crummy places. The no fly zone was working fine.

        • Carolyn Parish Taylor

          The economic meltdown happened after the housing debacle blew up. Why did it blow up? Because both houses of congress refused to do anything to stop it. Chris Dodd & Barney Frank, both democrats, one in the house & the other in the senate, the two people who could have done something to stop it, refused to & made fun of GWB for implying that something was wrong. I’m not a huge fan of GWB but I do know that he went to congress 17 times & worked behind the scenes to try to get them to stop all those bad housing loans. When the housing crisis finally blew up, they put it all off on Bush & people like you bought it, hook, line & sinker, but you probably don’t know anything about fishing either.

          • crosshr

            you speak as a true Patriot lady, thank you.

          • [email protected]

            it blew up because the PEOPLE who bought the houses did not pay for them. The people who could of fixed it are the people who did not pay their bills. The only thing the pols could do is raise the requirements back to where they were when you needed 10% down.

          • Jonathan Rudd

            It was done on purpose axer351. They KNEW they couldn’t pay the mortgages. It was well planned. Read about it. Why do you think Barney and Dodd are gone???

          • tammy

            They were never expected to pay for them. Most were the very poor, who were so happy to be able to buy a house. The government told them they could afford it, when they knew there was no way. The people fell for it.

          • RubyRedd

            You’re right, the people did not pay, but when the housing market inflated the worth of the houses and the economy took s downturn, jobs were lost and unemployment rose to above 10% when Obama promised it wouldn’ t go over 8%, . Job loss was a major factor in the inability to pay the mortgage. Of course the banks had to foreclose. Anyway, the subprime loans were insured. The lenders required the buyers to buy mortgage insurance which protected the lenders if the borrower defaulted on the loan. The banks didn’t fare as bad as most people think. Of course there were other reasons why the borrowers defaulted as well. On occasion there would be extensive repairrs to be made and no money to have repairs done. I know people can relate.

          ATMs.
          A YouTube video.
          Whatever it takes to hid the fact Obama IS NOT CAPABLE OF BEING AN EFFECTIVE AMERICAN PRESIDENT.
          He was raised by Communists in Hawaii, by Muslims in Indonesia, and is still spending his life trying to win the love of a worthless, deadbeat father who abandoned him when he was 2 years old.
          And lickspittles like you buy into the lies.
          If government’s the solution, why does it keep making so many problems?

          PS – According to the math from a CDC study, more people have contracted an STD than found a full-time job under Obama. FEWER people have work now thn in January 2009. In fact, at NO point in Obama’s tenure have more people been working than the day he was sworn in as President.

          Be glad you don’t have the balls to put your real name on here. I’m making a list of people not to help when it all hits the fan. You’ll be on it one way or another. Let your Holy government come riding to your rescue.

          • Magik13

            The Republicans squandered the budget surplus left by Clinton and created the huge insurmountable budget deficit the country now has. When the republicans were in power they decimated the economy and right before Obama was elected the country was losing 800,000 jobs per month. The economy is now greatly improved from the days of the Republican created Great Recession. Its obvious that you and all Republicans are the blind, brainwashed fools. To shore up your fragile egos and your weak, fear based belief system you are willing to once again vote for the Great Recession Republicans who destroyed this country.

      • Magik13

        List 1 bona fide act of ” thuggery” and “corruption” committed by Obama. You right wing whackos are full of accusations and slander and hate but have no facts or reality in your distorted hate and fear filled worldview. When a Republican dies they spend hundreds of years in ” purgatory” which is the lowest levels of the Astral planes. There they suffer profoundly from their own hate, racism, misogyny. bigotry, and shame.

    If republicans truly cared about what a bad job obama is doing(and believe me I think he is doing a bad job too) they would have fielded a better candidate in 2012. If that is all the republicans have, then I think the country is doomed.

    • Vance P. Frickey

      And if Democrats really thought Bush sucked all that badly, why did they run JOHN KERRY against him? The who man admitted to committing war crimes in Vietnam before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee? The man who was the Soviets’ biggest agent of influence in Congress in the 1980s? Joseph Lieberman was available, and probably would have done a better job than either Bush OR Kerry.

      If Democrats were so opposed to the PATRIOT Act, why did the Democrat-controlled Senate and House (at the time) renew it and Obama sign it ? Why is the NSA being backed totally by the White House and the Democratic Senate leadership?

      The fact is, politics draws busybodies and power junkies, and the higher in politics you go, the worse that gets. Ronald Reagan, for his several faults, was the closest thing we had to a dedicated, basically honest President since Eisenhower. Note their party affiliation.

      And notice that Ronald Reagan began running for the Presidency in 1968. Where’s the guy who started running for the Presidency 12 years ago that you’d like to see be President from either party?

      • Gayle

        The 2012 election was stolen by IRS vote rigging, overseen by Holder and Obama. RINOs don’t have the gonads to do something about it. Romney may also be a RINO but at least would have made a positive and successful presidency by now.

      • tammy

        The only thing wrong with Romney, was too many Christians refused to vote for a Mormon (Christian) so they got a Muslim. I hope they learned their lesson and will vote for the best person. Romney was a good man, loves America, and know how to handle money. Instead they elected a community organizer, who never did anything worth mentioning

    No real difference from how the Democrats in general have acted since the 1800s. It’s a dirty party with a dirty past, a dirty present and a dirty future assured by the number of Democrats who, directly or indirectlly, control most of what we see and hear on television and read in newspapers.

    During the 2004 Presidential election, an alleged historian at the University of New Orleans, who had a major financial interest in his biography of John Kerry basically go away once his REAL record in Vietnam came out, tried that intimidation tactic with Kerry’s former commanders on the Swift Boats. It didn’t occur to him that men who actually traded fire at sea level with the Viet Cong would just laugh at him.

    quote:………………………………………………….

    On the night of Sept. 11, 2012 — before former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and
    Glen Doherty were killed by a terrorist mortar strike — Secretary of State
    Hillary Clinton released a public statement linking the attack against the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya,
    with an anti-Muslim video, which she referred to as “inflammatory material
    posted on the Internet.”

    The statement first notes that a State Department officer had been killed in
    Benghazi — an apparent reference to Information Management Officer Sean Smith,
    whose body had been recovered at the U.S. mission in Benghazi by U.S. security
    officers by about 5:30 p.m. Washington, D.C., time on Sept. 11 — or 11:30 p.m.
    Benghazi time.

    The statement then talks about Clinton’s
    communications that night with Libya’s
    president and refers to what Clinton
    calls “inflammatory material posted on the Internet.”

    “I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today,” Clinton said in the statement. “As we
    work to secure our personnel and facilities, we have confirmed that one of our
    State Department officers was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and those who have suffered in
    this attack.

    “This evening, I called Libyan President Magariaf to coordinate
    additional support to protect Americans in Libya,”
    Clinton
    continued. “President Magariaf expressed his condemnation and condolences
    and pledged his government’s full cooperation.

    “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to
    inflammatory material posted on the Internet,” Clinton said. “The United States
    deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.
    Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our
    nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts
    of this kind.”

    “In light of the events of today, the United
    States government is working with partner countries
    around the world to protect our personnel, our missions, and American citizens
    worldwide,” Clinton’s
    statement concluded.

    On Jan. 8, I contacted the State Department press office three times by
    telephone and once by email to ask when exactly on Sept. 11, 2012, the
    department released this statement by Clinton.

    “I just want to know at what time on Sept. 11, 2012, this statement was
    released,” I asked in an email that I sent at 2:20 p.m. Eastern time after
    my second phone inquiry.

    I was later told that a group that answers questions on Benghazi for the State Department was working
    on an answer for me.

    However, the Associated Press first published a story quoting Clinton’s statement at
    10:58 p.m. Eastern time on Sept. 11.

    The AP released a story that night datelined Cairo,
    written by Maggie Michael and Sarah El Deeb, and carrying the headline, “American
    killed in Libya protest over film.” The story noted that Clinton had confirmed that “one State Department
    officer had been killed in the protest at the U.S.
    consulate in Benghazi.”
    It also quoted directly from Clinton’s
    statement: “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a
    response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet.”

    The Associated Press’ Media Relations office confirmed to me that the AP
    first published its version of this story quoting Clinton’s statement at 10:58 p.m. Eastern
    time on Sept. 11.

    A CIA timeline of the Benghazi events provided by a senior U.S. intelligence
    official, the Senate Homeland Security Committee’s report on Benghazi and the
    State Department’s own Accountability Review Board Report all indicate that
    Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed at the U.S. “Annex” in
    Benghazi sometime between about 5:14 a.m. and 5:26 a.m. Benghazi time on Sept.
    12. That would be between 11:14 p.m. and 11:26 p.m. on Sept. 11 in Washington, D.C. — or at
    least 16 minutes after the AP reported Clinton’s
    statement.

    The CIA timeline indicates that a security team sent to the rescue by the
    U.S. Embassy in Tripoli got to the Benghazi
    Annex about 5:15 a.m. Benghazi
    time. “They arrive with Libyan support at the Annex by 5:15 a.m., just
    before the mortar rounds begin to hit the Annex,” says this timeline.
    “The two security officers (Woods and Doherty) were killed when they took
    direct mortar fire as they engaged the enemy. That attack lasted only 11
    minutes then also dissipated.”

    The State Department ARB report provided additional details, but also set
    the time of the attack that killed Woods and Doherty at approximately 5:15 a.m.
    Benghazi time.

    “The seven-person response team from Embassy Tripoli arrived in Benghazi to lend
    support,” said the ARB report. “It arrived at the Annex about 0500
    local. Less than 15 minutes later, the Annex came under mortar and RPG attack,
    with five mortar rounds impacting close together in under 90 seconds. Three
    rounds hit the roof of an Annex building, killing security officers Tyrone
    Woods and Glen Doherty.”

    On Dec. 31, Senate Homeland Security Chairman Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., and
    Ranking Member Susan Collins, R-Maine, published their own report on Benghazi. This report
    confirmed both that Woods and Doherty were killed between 5:14 a.m. and 5:26
    a.m. Benghazi time on Sept. 12 and that Benghazi was six hours ahead of Washington, D.C.

    “American government officials outside of Benghazi
    learned of the attack shortly after it started at 3:40 p.m. EST (9:40 p.m. Benghazi time),”
    said the Lieberman-Collins report. “DS (diplomatic security) agents, in
    addition to notifying personnel at the Annex, immediately alerted officials at
    the U.S Embassy in Tripoli and the Department of
    State Headquarters in Washington,
    D.C.”

    “The team from Tripoli
    finally cleared the airport and arrived at the Annex at approximately 5:04
    a.m., about 10 minutes before a new assault by the terrorist began, involving
    mortar rounds fired at the Annex,” said the report. “The attack
    concluded at approximately 5:26 a.m., leaving Annex security team members
    Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty dead and two others wounded.”…………………………………………………

    So, this helps to substantiate my claim that Chris Stevens was set up by his
    own gov’t, perhaps influenced by Jimmy Carter trying to save the hostages years
    ago.

    First, we have the former Co. of John Brennan, Stanley Inc., bought by CGI, coming up through
    an avatar /hyperlink search as the people responsible for changing the name of
    the “Innocence of Muslims” video. So, this was created ahead of time, to blame Benghazi on the dopey
    video, which has been attributed to your pal, Nakoula, who is NOT a Copt, but a
    Muslim. Yet, you had the gall to shake hands with the parents of the Benghazi dead, knowing
    full well that Brennan concocted the video.

    According to Walid Shoebat, there is evidence that Mohammed Morsi’s Muslim
    Brotherhood thugs murdered Chris Stevens. The attackers knew exactly where the
    jerry cans of gasoline were, they knew where to find Stevens (who was sent to
    be in Benghazi
    at that exact time, by Obama). IMHO, the planned kidnapping of Stevens, was to trade
    the blind sheik for Stevens, to make Morsi happy, which has been one of Obama’s
    goals- since the Muslim Brotherhood practically sleeps in the Lincoln Bedroom
    these days. And your best girlfriend, Huma Weiner: has relatives up to their
    eyeballs in the Brotherhood.

    So, now we await a false flag “event” since the pig Morsi is being tried by
    Egyptian military who might get out of him, Obama (and his half –brother’s)
    deep Islamist connections. I’m sorry, Hillary, that your Arab Springboard to
    the Muslim Brotherhood just didn’t work out too well. Syria is your
    failure too, btw. You should have threatened to quit over trying to get Assad
    to reform. Instead, your ego and your Presidential ambitions kept you from
    doing the right thing and hundreds of thousands lay dead as Al Queda slits
    throats right and left. Maybe the Pope
    can convert Assad, for St. Paul was met on the
    road to Damascus,
    right?

    So, when Woods & Doherty arrived to help, the kidnapping plan fell
    apart, and Stevens was raped and then murdered. Nobody is talking about the
    rape anymore, or the fact that Stevens, a gay man, was sent by you and/or Obama
    into a middle eastern country. We don’t know if the man with the phone in his
    mouth, was helping Stevens, or hurting him. We do see the reddened back of
    Stevens, though, indicating being beaten. We do know that Libyans for the most
    part, liked Ambassador Stevens. Zillions that taxpayers dole out for facial
    recognition, yet no names of the henchman.

    Then we had the CIA making everyone shut up. Threats, intimidation if they spoke
    to Congress. John Kerry (who is currently screwing Israel) visits a witness, but no
    one else does. Anderson Cooper gets allowed in to contaminate the crime scene,
    and FBI doesn’t arrive until weeks later. No autopsy for Stevens, from an
    American doctor.

    The Fleet Antiterrorism Security Team (FAST) had instructions to be ready
    the DAY BEFORE Benghazi.
    They then received a stand down order after which four would die.

    It all points to treason charges for you, Obama, Brennan, Jarrett, and God
    knows who else.

    I hope you guys like orange jumpsuits,

  • MoreFreedom2

    That’s how the government captures the media. Deny access unless the reporting is friendly. Threaten those who don’t comply. Give access to friendly reporters.

    It also pressures the media by being a big advertiser. Ask any reporter and they will tell you that the media corporations don’t like to bite the hand that feeds it.

    Then it also lures reporters thru the revolving doors with overpaid government jobs in speech writing, communications, spokesperson, and public relations jobs.

    Politicians provide offers of great temptation to not only media corporations and their owners, but also to the lowly reporters.

  • ZorroRidesAgain

    Benghazi,
    Obama didn’t want them to report on his incompetence!

    Obama tried hard to discourage FOX from reporting about Benghazi?????

    Did President OLiar even know that Benghazi occurred? He always claims he “don’t no nothing about nothing” until he reads about in the paper. JUST LIKE US!

    Where was the Conspirator & Chump that night? I was watching a news show that indicated OLiar was going to LAS VEGAS for a fundraiser that evening, but where ever he was he abdicated the throne to someone else because apparently he couldn’t be reached and he had no input or involvement. There’s our “Leader of the Free World” that wants respect. He’s an “Empty Suit,” an “Empty Chair.”
    Then there is Hillary, remember her ad about asking whether the phone will be answered at the White House when the tough calls come through at 3:00 am? Hillary never picked up the phone again after her last conversation with the Deputy Secretary of State at 2:00 am and he was TRYING to get hold of her! They were probably reading books to little school children and couldn’t make it. Once again, the Left Wing Lying Lemmings Media doesn’t hold them accountable at all after trashing Bush constantly about NOTHING!

    What’s the difference, right Hillary, you shrill harpy! Just let them be murdered!

    LOSERS, LOSERS and INCOMPETENT LOSERS, the whole OLiar Administration!

    They are taking this country down one day at a time!

      • tammy

        He is Muslim. He has stated many times that he is Muslim such as ” McCain never put me down for my Muslim faith? I will always side with the Muslims. He is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. His brother is one of the head members of the brotherhood, so is Valerie Jarred. Most of his Czars are brotherhood, and why do we need a czar of Sharia Law?????

    Obama and his thugs tried VERY hard to discourage ANY news agency from reporting about what really happened at Benghazi and why it happened. And it worked because very few people in this country know what really happened that night and why the CIA was using a building in the middle of no where to store weapons retrieved from the Libyan stock piles. Nor are people in this country aware that the administration was in the process of shipping those weapons to the Syrian rebels.

    The most transparent administration my a-ZZ.

    Had enough Fascism yet?
    It is time for our Military to do their DUTY! Their oath is NOT to the President. Their oath is not to Congress. Their oath is to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution against ALL enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC!
    If ever there was a time for our Military to man up and do their duty… NOW is that time! Congress and the DOJ has proven to us that they chose NOT to protect We the People against this tyranny.

    • Chimookman

      And what is their duty? Stage a coup d’état? Get your head out of your behind. Show up on May 16 in DC and show your views as a citizen, not as a seditious nut with no cojones to do anything yourself. Military will not do this because you think it should. You made the list with that one, warto

        Yes a coup d’état is the ONLY way we are going to stop this tyranny. You guys going to DC and asking them to go is laughable… Come on man. Do you really think the MSM will even cover it? They are in on the whole thing.

        They will do it because it is their duty to fight enemies of the Constitution. They will not watch us dragged into Fascism without putting up a fight.

    Well heck yes the reporting was for political reasons, but it’s the president himself that was reporting the “protest over the video” for political reasons. Remember he had one handed handled all the bad guys and they were on the run. He couldn’t be bothered by four Americans being butchered, he had a campaign to run. He had to run to Las Vegas to campaign for money. If America knew what he had done, he wouldn’t be sitting in Our White House.

    Obama and his ilk will not be prosecuted over any of their crimes. The ONLY reason is because Obama is black.

    • Daniel Pickering

      Actually his race has very little to do with it. The problem is that Obama will do a blanket pardon for everyone within his administration so no one will get prosecuted. That includes Lois Lerner, Eric Holder, even Hillary Clinton. Additionally He will pardon all his friends which will include the new black panther party, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, all his corrupt supporters, and I suspect he will pardon Al Qaeda, and a few other terrorist organizations. Then watch how all this bringing the races together will work out when the ghetto thugs break loose and the knockout “game” (assaults) will become riots in the major cities.

      So illegal gun running for the purpose of over throwing a sovereign country is not a problem? Supporting known terrorist groups with weapons is not a problem? Your talking the deaths of tens of thousands of people. Millions have been displaced by this operation.

    • Darko714

      Most of us were insulted by the transparent lies to cover it up.

    • tammy

      We never leave our men behind, yet Obama left those men for 7 hours until they were dead. There were American forces 2 hours away. Obama just did not want any survivors or witnesses of his gun running

    Greta is tough and I am glad she is at Fox News!

  • CLAYCE

    Greta is as radiant as the morning sun! We need more of her and Jennifer Griffin!

      No get your facts right. Michelle is the trans parent. BO is just gay

  • Bob Marly

    Just spit the country in half already!! The Liberals can take the south, and the border problems!! Conservatives will be happy in the north!! Shut DC down completely!! Obama, Reid, Pelosi enjoy the south. We will be building a wall to keep your @ss out thats for sure!!!!

    • Darko714

      Why split it? All 50 states should simply declare independence from Washington, DC.

    • tammy

      The So is the area with the most Conservatives. Seems like both coasts are liberal and the middle are good Christian, conservatives. And yes we cling to our Bibles and guns, our flag and our Constitution, and our country and families. Yes, we are wonderful people

      • Renellin

        That is not true. There are conservatives all over the country, we just tend to stay out of the big cities.

  • Mike Barnes

    CBS ruined Sharyn Atkisson’s career because she insisted on investigating Benghazi. Head of CBS News has a brother in the Obama WH who helped craft the video lie.
    So who is “being political?”

  • Steve Brown

    You can rest assured, all this administration wants is: 1) a vote, 2) you tax dollars and 3) a tight lip.

  • Darko714

    Back in the 60s, liberals were all about freedom. Now they hate it. What happened?

    • tammy

      They are not liberals, they are Progressives. The word has a different definition than it used to. It now means Communist/socialist/ OWG

  • Will R

    I love Greta’s objective and professional reporting. My favorite news anchor by far.

  • Nate Shofner

    Only Fox News see it that way, it’s like beating a dead horse until every drop of blood is out, do the family a favor and move on.

  • terrythecork

    They can’t Dodge you forever without violating the First Amendment. Keep sticking it to them, Fox…

    • Mark Stuber

      How did they violate the First Amendment? Have you ever read the First Amendment?

  • woofpacker75

    Nothing like the sunshine of truth in a timeline of events to help a pack of liars know their lies are now understood by the public. Go get ‘em, Greta!!!

    And maybe we can get Trey Gowdy on the Benghazi case along with his IRS gig. SOON.

    ;o)

  • scottmbruner

    This is just plain sick. Sick. Obama’s administration even pretending Fox News is a legitimate news organization can only give them credence.

    It saddens me to the core of my being that this article was written, and I hope it’s an onion parody.

    • scottmbruner

      Wait, is this article seriously critical of Obama? No, it’s parody – sorry got snookered!

    • tammy

      Another MSNBC watcher. The station of proven lies. I bet you get a shiver up you leg too, when your God, Obama reads from his teleprompter.

  • Don C. Hayward

    The level of lies and corruption emanating from the oval office is criminal and should be prosecuted under the RICO statutes. But then you have the DOJ that in and of itself is a criminal enterprise.

  • terrythecork

    Fuck you, Stuber. There’s your First Amendment, Asshole!!!

  • WFP

    Don’r mess with Greta.

  • Tim Elms

    According to sitejen this website has a new worth of $1,245, so.. no, I won’t be taking anything I read here seriously.

    • loupgarous

      And regardless of YOUR net worth (probably enhanced recently by a check from Organizing for Action from their $1 billion war chest), no one’s taking anything YOU say anywhere seriously. The quality of Soros trolls here is dropping precipitously.

  • Angeo

    “Wow.”
    This article is sophomoric.

  • loupgarous

    By withholding their spin on Benghazi, the White House only succeeded in improving the reliability of the total information Fox News had on the incident – by reducing the proportion of lies in it. And where’s the White House’s information on the “espionage” a Fox News correspondent they alleged was committing in order to get a Federal judge to authorize the same wiretaps that they had placed on the Associated Press?

    If this sort of pressure had been applied by the Bush White House on “mainstream media news outlets,” the administration’s reliable supporters in the mainstream media would STILL be moaning about it the same way they can’t get off the subject of waterboarding.

  • Laura Garber

    By now everyone knows Benghazi was another useless waste of money by the GOP. The ACA is actually keeping health care cost down. I am also a nurse as is Miss Tammy and she should know if people aren’t covered by their own insurance we are paying for it anyway. This article only proves Fox doesn’t focus on true stories. If you wish to read a good one look up the article that says why Reagan will be considered one of the worst presidents we’ve had. The debt went up from 9 billion to 2.8 trillion under him corporations got big breaks, he gave amnesty to 3 million illegal immigrants because they were cheap labor, companies moved overseas because labor was cheaper, he broke up unions, unemployment was 11% and when jobs came back they were lower paying because the better jobs went over seas. And he sold weapons to Osama bin Laden group who turned around and used them on us.

  • Michelle

    It used to be common when I was a girl to comment (tongue in cheek) how old commie Russia’s news were so filtered. How their government kept stuff from the people, and how thankful we were that we had a “free press.”

    Well, fast forward 35 years to now, where we Americans are in the same boat of having our administration censor our news. Thank God for Fox News for having the guts to do the right thing. Two days ago, I was looking all over the news channels for a particular story, but NONE of the mainline channels had it. Big story. (Aug 2014) Fox did. Keep up with the REAL American journalism. We need you.

  • Jon Galt

    I wonder how many on the left think Obama’s strong armed tactics are great?

  • allisonfaye

    LIberals in general want to silence Fox. It is amazing to me when 90 percent of the media is biased to the left how much hatred is geared towards Fox.

  • levria loveless

    Impeach OBAMA!

  • Shirley Thompson

    Get over Benghazi. We have NO business erecting embassies in foreign countries, especially where we are not wanted

  • Nanasix

    YOU GO GRETA. I’M PROUD OF WHAT YOU DO AND SAY.
