Watergate involved ZERO deaths but FIFTY people indicted or in prison.

Yep. I’ve believed all these ‘scandals’ have been ALLOWED to leak.

Shock ‘em.
Deny everything; blame low rankers.
Announce intention to “get to the bottom of this”
Declare it resolved and that it’s “time to move on”

And we sheep become desensitized yet ONE more step further.

These current scandals are WAY beyond reasonable. This IS destroying the whole idea of the “United States of America”.

It isn’t so much a smokescreen as it is the greatest country on earth burning to the ground.

From what Iv’e gathered,the”mission”in Benghazi was to made into a permanent”Consulate”.This is what Shrillary wanted.We NEED to know the following:Why were Stevens’repeated requests for additional security turned down;What was he doing in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11(gun-running to Syrian rebels?);Who gave the”Stand Down”orders??It is my belief that ONLY The POTUS has that power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The very long standing liberal charge against bush was, “no blood for oil..!”. We all heard that screamed a million times. But that is PRECISELY what MoroccoBomber’s overthrow of Libya was all about.

Bengazi is a hypocrisy dagger balanced against the beating heart of progressivism.

That is what they’re so desperate to cover up.

Control of oil is finance for the Muslim Brotherhood.

We ALL know the answers to these questions.

And these evil people are allowed to ‘move’ the guilty ones right out of the way via promotions, or reassignments or ‘retirements’ or whatever.. Gone - problem solved.

Hillary should be in prison. But nope. She’ll go away for a while as they put on a roundabout argument show for us. Then in a year or so, she’ll come back a HERO, to SAVE us and stop all the bickering - as though SHE’S the adult come home...

We’re doomed as a people. No one on the right is calling this for what it is. I’m talking elected officials. We have no ‘police-ing’ of our government. None whatsoever.

This nonsense with the NSA and the claim this latest sweep of phone records was because of the Boston bombing doesn’t pass the smell test.

Had the Obama adm. been caught off guard with the Boston bombing like they claim, they wouldn’t have waited for 10 days to get a warrant for a sweep of the phone records they would have obtained a warrant for the phone records on the same day as the bombing.

This is a “made up” scandal to provide cover for Obama and Hillary collaborating with terrorist.

I have two fundamental questions that need to be answered and the answers should not be classified.

1. What were the results of Steven’s autopsy? Make whoever performed the autopsy testify in public under oath.

2. What were the names of the 30 or so personnel (some of whom were wounded) who were trapped in Benghazi? Who is preventing them from being known and testifying and why?

Suppose it was proven that Obama gave the stand down order?

Since that is clearly one of his Constitutional prerogatives, what do you think Congress would do about it?

Solely from the perspective of (legally and Constitutionally) removing Obama from office, I don’t see that Benghazi can accomplish the job.

What about Benghazi do you think would work as a basis for impeachment (as opposed to IRS etc)?

With regard to impeachment they should throw the whole mess at Obama. Any one of these scandals is worthy of impeachment.

And...While they are at it. The House should get those birth records as part of the impeachment process. No need to impeach an impostor. Merely arrest him and try him ( in a military court) for treason.

I get very frustrated with organizations like the NRA who fail to understand the above. Yes, they may win a skirmish or two but in the end the political, cultural, and religious war will be LOST unless all conservatives get on board with defeating the above.

I've also been thinking what if Obama DIDN'T give the stand down order? If he was really AWOL from his duties and responsibilities that night (impeachable in my mind right there) WHO was in charge acting as President and Commander in Chief?

I believe Obama can be and should be removed from office for abuse of power, for violating First and Fourth Amendment protections of citizens and for causing them to be violated by officers subordinate to him. I also believe that this is achievable in this very Congress, if the case is prosecuted properly.

To me, "Benghazi" is simply about bad judgement, moral cowardice, and sympathies to Muslims. All of these things were well known about Obama before he was elected - twice - and they will never, never, never in my opinion result in his removal.

I would go so far as to say that if it was proven that Obama was stoned on cocaine, in bed with Reggie Love, and had Susan Rice giving orders to the Pentagon because he was unavailable on the night of 9/11/12 that he would not be removed by this Congress or any other Congress. If there's one thing the Members all understand it's getting their freak on with an invisible person and covering it up.

Therefore, my interest in the Benghazi affair is limited.

“Suppose it was proven that Obama gave the stand down order.”

Consider this... Valerie Jarrett, never more than a whispered voice from Barry, gave the order. She had to give the order because she had already dismissed Barry back to either play X-Box or watch Sports Center. When it became obvious that Barry and his posse wouldn’t get to do the touchdown dance for the contrived kidnapping, Val sent him packing as he was just in the way. Time to put the already made CIA video in play as the go to back up plan.

These people are completely out of their minds and depth. We are in the best possible hands. Is there no one in DC willing to do the work and the crap jobs? ( Are you feeling me NSA?)

I think that Jarrett was in charge. Using Oblahblah only as the figurehead, this was not an attack but an operation that blew up in their faces. I think Jarrett and blahblah were both there, but they fabricated the story about him NOT being there. Gotta keep his fingers clean and all. Better to look incompetent than guilty. Plenty of other scandal fodder to throw out and cloud the water.

IF, however, somehow they managed to actually tell the truth and Oblahblah was NOT in the room, them someone was acting above their authority. I can’t imagine how that can be legal for someone else to act as the CiC unless it was Biden. He’s been pretty tight-lipped about all this as far as I know. But he should NOT have been in charge, as O has this authority unless he’s removed from power.

If it wasn’t Oblahblah or Biden, then we have NO IDEA who is in charge of our country, who has the nuclear codes, etc. and this is an incompetent, out of control situation that requires removal from office. Imagine if this were foreign country attacking the homeland here like 9/11/’01. No president in charge? How long can a president go missing exactly?

just thinking out loud here.
