Politics led to the deaths in Benghazi

first_imgAfter the attack, both Obama and Mrs. Clinton both blamed a video that little to no one had seen, when in fact the night of the attack Mrs. Clinton emailed her daughter and told her Al-Qaida had attacked our embassy.In Niger, the soldiers were on patrol in a dangerous area. There were no requests for more security. They knew there was a chance of armed conflict and they were armed. No one from the Trump administration has tried to blame a video or make any other excuse.I know as an informed reader it’s fun to watch the Democrats try to blame President Trump for what happened in Niger. Unfortunately, there’s no comparison. Obama and Mrs. Clinton were never found to be responsible for Benghazi. I believe they just ignored the requests for added security, and once the attack occurred, they denied any culpability because Obama’s re-election would be hurt if the truth ever came out.The fact is, politics led to the death of the four Americans in Benghazi and four brave Americans lost their lives. In Niger, four brave Americans lost their lives, period.Dave EdwardsHalfmoonMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesHigh-risk COVID exposure reported in Clifton ParkEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motorists Re Oct. 31 letter, “Politics has no place in Benghazi, Niger”: The only thing that the attack in Benghazi and the attack in Niger have in common is both were carried out by Muslims and, in both cases, four Americans were killed.As Mr. Gary Guido stated, attacks happen and unfortunately people will be killed.The attack in Benghazi occurred just a week or two after the Democratic convention in 2012, at which Obama proclaimed that al-Qaida is on the run.In addition, the ambassador had requested on multiple occasions increased security. Somehow the person responsible, Mrs. Clinton, never saw the requests. How could they need more security after the president had declared Al-Qaida basically destroyed?

Denmark OKs legal gender change on demand

first_imgLifeSiteNews 25 June 2014Europe’s largest homosexual activist organization, ILGA Europe, has praised Denmark’s Parliament for allowing citizens to change their sex on identification documents on request.Last week, Danish parliamentarians passed a measure allowing a legal sex change without, as previously required, a diagnosis of gender identity disorder and sterilization. The new law will take effect September 1 and will allow any citizen over the age of 18 to legally change their gender following a six-month waiting period.“Today we have dropped the requirement of sterilization when transgendered people need a new personal identification number as part of a legal sex change,” Minister for Economics and the Interior Margrethe Vestager said in a statement.“It will make life easier and more dignified for the individual, for example when you are asked for ID in shops,” she added.http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/denmark-oks-legal-gender-change-on-demandlast_img read more
