No and No, for technicality reasons.

Fog of War doesn't provide a +2 Defense bonus, it provides concealment, which in turn provides the +2 DEF vs. Ranged and Magic Attacks. That extra step/causality means that Blessed won't ignore it, because Blessed only ignores spells that directly boost a stat, not those that provide something else that ends up providing a boost.

It won't ignore a bonus provided by an animus cast from the warbeast because that is not a spell. That is only an animus, and the wording of Blessed is very specific; it ignores the bonuses from spell effects.
