Republicans set groundwork for more Benghazi questions!
World Net Daily ^ | May 9, 2013 | Taylor Rose

WASHINGTON – “The public is finally hearing that it was very clear from the very first moment that it had nothing to do with a protest or a video, that that was a complete fabrication, created by this administration, not based on any factual submission from anybody in the administration, it was created after the fact,” U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told WND after Wednesday’s groundbreaking U.S. House hearing on the terror attacks in Benghazi.....

Rush was saying today, if I understood him correctly, that he thinks that with the smearing of the repubs and the dem-spin in the media, that as far as the lo-info voters are concerned, Benghazi is over and the cover-up has been accomplished.

I do hope so much that that is not true.

My question is and has been this:

How did Obama, Hillary and their poor excuses for military commanders know that the killing would stop at 4 and not continue on the next day? Piss poor Officers in the service these days. Does anybody think an officer like Colonel Moore of Ia Drang would have left men swinging from a rope like these pieces of shit did?

For this testimony to be effective, the Republicans need an end game. They must answer the question: "what do we want to get from these hearings?" They cannot rely on the media to take the testimony, and create a narrative-at least not one that's damning to the administration. Perhaps decades ago, the public might've been smart enough to make their own inferences; that won't happen today.

The republicans can't hold hearings only-they must shape the message, and it must feed their follow-on actions. Is it the intent to build a case for impeachment? Is it to tarnish Hillary from any future political ambitions? The GOP must answer this.

GOP? I’m not impressed. Let’s see what becomes of it first.

The issue at this point is that the main stream press attacks the right and protects socialism and the left.

Our press has a cancer.

We have kids in schools for decades being indoctrinated by many union teachers. For decades the indoctrination has been ignored and not attacked by the right, so we also have people with information cancer in their brain.

The sky is green, blood is yellow and politics is all red at this point with all old school media.

The United States has been betrayed by the mainstream press and TV press. They have been complicit in pushing the unsustainable left wing agenda and the nation suffers from it.

Bottom line, Rush is right again.

There is some slim hope.

My hypothesis is that Obambi was arming Al Qaeda in Syria with shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles.

That’s TREASON of a sort even stupid people might understand.

Sen. Rand Paul R-Ky. told WND that “the question is … why would they do a cover up? What are they covering up? “You know, a week before the ambassador was killed in Libya, a ship left Libya and docked in Turkey, and it actually interviewed the captain of that ship who said there were arms on board and that he actually witnessed the rebels taking the arms and disputing over who got what,” he told WND.

What's the story on this ship, anyone know?

If that were to happen, it would mean that the American system actually works.

It hasn’t worked for a looooooooooooooooong time.

I don’t really know if this is even possible, but couldn’t they trace all of the views for that “hateful” video and see who watched it when. Just an idea.

Well if you would have seen The Five this evening you would know that it is true. They showed video clips from various talk shows and the hosts making fun of the hearing and the republicans. Colbert showed a car burning in Benghazi that night, cracked a sarcastic joke and the crowd went nuts, started laughing and applauding hysterically. So Rush is right, again.

I haven’t heard NBC, CBS, or ABC say anything about fabrication.

Nor has anything been written about it in liberal newspapers.

These hearings will mean nothing without the end game being announced to impeach King Obama and jail Clinton. No announcement and nothing will be accomplished. Many Americans are too simple minded to understand the destruction that has happened to America.

This will be true only if we let this be true.

I remember when the Watergate issue was playing out. The news media, Woodward and Bernstein etc. went after them 24/7. They were relentless. They will not do the same on Benghazi.

Here, we have the truth on our side. It is important that all participants testify under oath and we get to the bottom of this. We must keep the pressure on. Credit Mark Levin for his leadership and persistence on this coverup.

Once again, why won't Boehner appoint a select committee to investigate and highlight the criminal activities of this Administration that deliberately left Americans to die? What is the GOP’s plan to break through the media wall of deemphasized or no coverage by major networks and misdirection and spin masquerading as news. Boehner needs to be much higher profile and in front of the cameras every day. So far he has mostly been a wet blanket.

Here’s a suggestion for the GOP. Follow the order chain upward in denying help to the Americans were murdered. If an officer issued those orders, find out who told him and so forth. Eventually, under oath one should get to the source, the White House.

Rush is right. This is going nowhere. The only way it would get anywhere is if the Republicans refused to pass any appropriations bills until the president himself testified under oath.

The Republicans have done nothing during the entire Obama era that inspires confidence in their ability or desire to rein in the increasingly totalitarian nature of the federal government.

Well of course the White House knew.

Anybody with a brain knew.

This was a lie from start to finish.
They lied about the Video
They lied about the availability of troops
They lied about the gun running
They lied about it even being an embassy

Will Hillary or Obama be forced to hold any responsibility??

Bwahahahahhahaha you gotta be kidding.

:-( I understand what you are saying. It is most disheartening. (BTW, I NEVER watch The 5.)

Please see my previous post. I do subscribe to the idea that we must persist. We indeed have overwhelming odds against us, but we MUST play them.

I understand what you are saying, and it is quite tempting to throw in the towel and buy the rug, to use your metaphor...but I’m not there yet.

BTW, I will NEVER purchase a prayer rug to worship the jihadists’ god! [and I believe that is probably true for you as well!]

Well stated, CA Guy. We have an uphill climb. America has had them before, and I do not take this challenge lightly. What we face is every bit as dangerous and outcome-hanging-in-the-balance as our 1776 Revolution, bringing our nation together after the Late Unpleasantness of the 1860s, and Normandy, for example.

We do have a cancer in our press...and many of our other institutions as well. We will certainly be gravely sick for a while before we can possibly get better.

The idea of America, however is NOT sick, and too many people hold it in their hearts and WILL NOT SURRENDER. I am recalling from somewhere that only about 30% of the population were actually committed to the Revolution in 1776. We do not have to have the entire population or even a strongly committed majority.

We do have hope, but it is a terribly huge challenge. And the sad part is that it need never have been. But we do not do ourselves a favor to cry over that. We MUST each of us who do love America as she was founded, wake up each day, and ask, “OK, Uncle Sam, what can I do to save America today?”

It might be to talk to a neighbor. Go to a town hall meeting. Post on FreeRepublic.com. Write emails to representatives and friends. Donate to patriotic causes or candidates. The list is endless. Do at least one per day, if not more. This is our calling.
