Why are NO hearings being held on the Benghazi coverup??? (vanity)
Self | 11/1/12 | Self

Posted on 11/01/2012 6:32:41 AM PDT by Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears

Why is there NO REPUBLICAN calling together a committee to investigate this? Why are no subpoenas being issued? Why is no one being put under oath?

Forgive me if this vanity is an egregious offense to protocol, I do not mean it to be. And take it down if necessary.

I just believe this is an enormous question that a lot of us have, and it deserves to be answered. Does anyone know?

Because the White House and the press are covering it up and have thrown Mendnandez out as the distractor.

We are no longer a republic. We are an increasingly totalitarian oligarchy.

That is my hope. Everyone is keeping their powder dry until after the election.

Surely to goodness this will not be swept under the rug. Or America is finished.

Good point. Guess I can quit hyperventilating. lol

It’s just that I have seen SO MUCH apathy, and crimes going unpunished. (Fast & Furious, for example).

Got a little paranoid there.

Jason Chaffetz, R. UT (I think it UT) is on a media rampage however and doing a great job discussing General Hamm, the coverup etc. He seems to be a one man show except for Ms Lindsay who pirouettes on to the screen periodically.

Hearings are scheduled to begin November 13 in the House.

My point would be that the Republicans should have refused to adjourn the House and made this THE issue of the campaign. There are reasons why Romney shouldn’t be taking the lead on this issue, but there is no excuse for the House to let Obama off the hook after they had just started to dig into this mess. The initial hearings were a wealth of information and exposed the video fraud. The Republicans needed to follow up with hearings focused on the failure of the Obama regime to respond to calls for assistance.

If you were paying attention you would know that the House Republicans already held hearings on Bengazi and obtained direct testimony from the State Department and Bengazi Security commanders that has led to the breakdown and breakout of news and facts.

One wonders if you are a troll or merely grossly uninformed?

Even if there are hearings, I don’t expect much will be accomplished. A few lower end types in the administration might lose their jobs, but if Romney is elected President, they would be losing their jobs anyway.

The truly culpable parties, particularly the president and secretary of state, will come out of this unscathed. No one wants to touch the Evil One, lest they be accused of racism.

The House is the only body where the Republicans hold and edge and can initiate hearings—but all the House members are out campaigning to keep their jobs in the election that is only five days away.

They were unable to nail down the coverup during the hearings they had and thanks to the suppression of news by the MSM the issue is not getting the attention it deserves.

Brent Bozell nailed it in an article the other days when he exposed how the “non-biased moderators” of the Sunday shows completely ignored the issue or squashed any discussion when the conservative panelists tried to bring it up.

Um... Perhaps because Congress is adjourned right now and not back in session again until after the elections?

A sufficiently motivated Congress member or Senator could hold all the press conferences he or she wanted, but committee hearings, subpoenas, and all that can only be done while Congress is in session.

Sorry, but no sale.

You could argue that Dingy Harry would deny any such hearings.

But that shouldn't stop somebody from CALLING for them.

What good did the F&F hearings do? The ruling elite protect each other at the expense of the people, our liberty and what used to be our system of justice.

Get real, everyone!

It's a few hours more than four days before election. Our GOP candidates for House and Senate are out in the hustings working their districts across the fruited plain.

Sheesh, unless enough of our guys and dolls win their elections or retain their incumbancies there won't be any more hearings AT ALL!

EXACTLY. Something tells me we need to FLOOD the phone banks 24/7 when Congress gets back in session.

We have to let them know these murders will NOT BE ACCEPTED.

It was a stupid question, in retrospect. I am just so sick and tired of inaction on our side and cowardice, that my paranoia got the better of me.

Sadly, I am only cautiously optimistic that “our side” will have the integrity or courage to even do what is right in this instance.

(See: Trent Lott derailing the Clinton impeachment trial, John McCain trashing Michele Bachmann for calling out Huma Abedin or whatever her name is, and calling water boarding torture)...

Unfortunately we are the party of cowards and backstabbers.

saw my senator, Inhofe, on Whorealdo over the weekend, saying that it would be “politicizing” to start hearings before the election!!!! I’m stunned. Always thought of him as one of the “good” guys......

whatever happens Benghazi is part of Dingle Barrys legacy that he can carry to his grave. Maybe someday he will learn the shame of it but don’t hold your breath

Because it ain’t gonna happen days before the election.

Besides, congressional investigations and hearings are nothing but bread and circuses. Can you remember the last time they’ve actually accomplished anything?

No, it wasn't. I learned some hearing already happened, and that there are more after the election (regardless of how it turns out).

Yes. “Harry Reid and the Democrat majority in the Senate.”

We have been pretty much stymied ever since Nazi Pelosi and Harry Reid took over six long years ago. (Secret: they could (and did) do anything and knew it would be blamed on the eeeeeeevvviiilll “Bush”.)

As my tagline says: REMEMBER BENGHAZI!!!!

the senate is irrelevant

the HOUSE can hold hearings and investigations

call your congress-critter and DEMAND they explain why no hearings or investigations have been made known to the public in the last SEVEN weeks

by keeping quiet or doing everything ‘behind the scenes’ they are helping 0bama and progressives

Because the focus would shift from Benghazi to the hearings. Let’s keep the focus on the Middle East and the Democrat’s policies.

Because Romney is doing well enough without them and the GOP does not see any purpose to invite the charge that they are “piling on”.

Yeah, I don’t like it either, but that’s their logic.

No, this is exactly the wrong thing to do.
The left - with the media cheerleaders - would make sure that everyone understands that it is all political... simply the Republicans making noise trying to get rid of Obama. Too many people in this country are simply stupid sheep.

It is better to wait until after the election and then there can be no crying about it being political.
The problem is if Romney, Boehner, and the rest of the squishy Republicans try to set a conciliatory tone and let Obama out easy.
I can easily see them letting Obama ride out his term with a cloud over his head (he's too egotistical to resign) and a few "high profile" people losing their jobs.

For the record - I dont want Obama impeached. (Wouldn't happen anyway.) I want him in prison, stripped of any presidential perks (pension, secret service, etc). I want him to be a pariah, an outcast to the normal world. (Of course he will still be loved by Democrats & affiliated kool-aid drinkers.)

Because:

They are home campaigning

they are as corrupt as any criminal organization

They believe in only themselves and holding onto power...

They are too important to bother with some thing (in their eyes) as trivial as deaths of a mere ambassador and a few civilians albeit Navy veterans...

We have reelected them to never ending terms and not held them accountable.

Choose any one of the above there is no wrong answer.
