Reid Statement On Republicans Putting Conspiracy Theories Before the Middle Class
U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid ^ | May 2, 2014 | U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

Posted on 05/02/2014 3:01:23 PM PDT by mdittmar

Washington, DC – Nevada Senator Harry Reid today released the following statement after Speaker Boehner announced that House Republicans will form a new special committee on Benghazi.

“Republicans are showing yet again that they have nothing to offer the middle class. Republicans care more about defending billionaires like the Koch brothers and trying to rekindle debunked right-wing conspiracy theories than raising the minimum wage or ensuring women receive equal pay for equal work.

“There have already been multiple investigations into this issue and an independent Accountability Review Board is mandated under current law. For Republicans to  waste the American people’s time and money staging a partisan political circus instead of focusing on the middle class is simply a bad decision. While Republicans try to gin up yet another political food fight, Senate Democrats will remain focused on fostering economic growth for all hard-working Americans.”

"right-wing conspiracy theories"?

I've heard that line before.

All these foreign policy distractions are getting getting very complex!!

Even Democrat Intellectual, Ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi is growing weary of reading parts of some of the Left Stream Media articles about, as she says: “Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi!”

Clearly, Nancy PP is ready to be MOVING FORWARD!

Nobel “White Guilt” Peace Prize winner B. Hussein Obama as Commander in Chief of the US Military will probably, IMHO of course, soon issue an Executive Order to ban the awful term “War,” and replace it with the more user-friendly term “workplace violence.”

However, even this future, astute, PC Executive Order does not effectively deal with the root cause of these foreign policy distraction, namely the Videos!

The Cover Up White House still has nightly showings of the “Awful Benghazi Video” to refresh the memory of Staffers who have forgotten what difference Benghazi made.

Now comes ANOTHER Video, this one produced on the run, of course, by the same decimated leadership that was the key to getting Obama re-elected in 2012.

” - - - The video released by the Brigades in June showed nighttime explosions around the consulate, interlaced with footage of Osama bin Laden and al-Zawahiri, along with images from the 9/11 attacks. At the time the Brigades claimed it had launched the attack in response to the first reports of al-Libi’s death in a drone strike in the tribal areas of Pakistan. - - - “

One might even call this “The Tale of two Videos.”

What difference does it make?

The simple answer is as follows:

“Osama bin Laden is dead, and B. Hussein Obama has been reelected to continue to “Fundamentally transform the United States of America.”

” - - - The email is entitled “Libya update from Beth Jones. ” Jones was then-Assistant Secretary of State to Hillary Clinton. According to the email, Jones spoke to Libya’s Ambassador at 9:45am on Sept. 12, 2012 following the attacks.

“When [the Libyan Ambassador] said his government suspected that former Qaddafi regime elements carried out the attacks, I told him the group that conducted the attacks—Ansar Al Sharia—is affiliated with Islamic extremists,” Jones reports in the email. - - - “

Oh, me! Oh, my!! Whatever will the Covered Up White House do now?!

Will the highly decorated, ( it was THE Nobel “White Guilt” Peace Prize), AWOL Commander in Chief of all US Military Forces, B. Hussein Obama, rise to the occasion of this leak of an inconvenient email?

Will AWOL Commander in Chief B. Hussein use his phone and/or pen to ridicule or just deny that Benhghazi was nothing more than workplace violence?

Whatever will Mrs. Bill Clinton do now?

Hilly-Benghazi was Secretary of Statements when Bethy J. sent Hilly the FYI email!

Oh, me! Oh, my!!

Maybe hubby “Zipper-Boy” Clinton can help Hilly “slick” all this away?

Being a devoted Public Servant such as Obama and Hilly must be soooooo stressful at times!

To their credit, both B. Hussein and Mrs. Bill Clinton slept well that night while their Federal employees were being brutally injured and slaughtered at the multiple Benghazi Massacre workplace violence facilities.

Should B. Hussein and Mrs. Bill Clinton file for back payment increases in their Hazardous Stress Duty pay?

My guess is that B. Hussein could pull a few strings, and have “a bunch of folks” at the IRS cut these well-deserved “refund” checks.

Oops! I forgot! All B. Hussein has to do is issue an Executive Order to get the checks for Hazardous Stress duty pay, even though he was AWOL as Commander in Chief during the period of maximum stress.

No worries though as Speaker Boehner will continue to block any Special Investigator or Committee proposals from reaching the floor of the US House of Representatives.

All will be safe again in Obamanation!

The Democrats will keep talking about the middle class long after they’ve destroyed it.

Reid must be on coke, all he has is a dead horse that he can’t stop beating! Just what has Reid and his party done for the middle class, except decimate it? I’m so much better of since zero has been in office, hell I’ve been liberated from joblock, the hassles of property ownership, the stress of having to make decisions about spending money on entertainment or frivolous things like food, clothing and other luxury items. I just don’t know if I can survive three more years of their munificence.

How well has that worked out so far, gramps?

If a Republican Senate Leader - or any high-ranking Republican - had made a statement such as this one during the early days of Watergate or Iran-Contra, every news program and every news magazine program would scrub the country (and the world) for "victims," individuals who could put a human face on the MSM's "dastardly Republican" boogieman soap-opera storyline.

This person would look at Barbara Walters, or Steve Croft, or Morley Safer, or Dan Rather, and say something like "I'd like to see Senator Reid make his case for a conspiracy theory to my granddaughter, who hasn't eaten or slept sense her dad was killed in the Benghazi massacre took place over eighteen months ago."

A scene such as this one would be repeated every night, every weekend, at least once in every prime-time lineup, for weeks, with different individuals playing the starring role.

If actual victims couldn't be found, actors would be hired to play the parts. They would be completely convincing, and the various MSM news shows would never reveal that they were not real victims.

Flam. All flam.

You might say that the Rat Party (formerly the traditional, patriotic Democratic Party) is now a religion. Isflam.

Everything they say is flam.

And the Grand Wallah of Isflam is one Barack H. Obama.

This man is truly sick. And all the sycophantic libs that don’t call him out for his BS rhetoric are just as sick.

They are vermin and scum. I hope they all rot in hell along with their families.

I’m tired of playing games with these pieces of human garbage. When will our so-called representatives follow suit? Cowards all.

More Benghazi bizarro behavior.

Sen. (for Senile) Harry Reid (D-Beijing), just representing his constituency. Projecting, just as always, the kind of behavior he would engage in himself, and does, but since he tries to make out the “Republicans” (some kind of boogie man, that) also “might” engage in that sort of activities, then, by golly, what he is doing is not really so bad, now is it?

Harry Reid, the connection between Beijing and Benghazi.

It will destroy him, in the end.

Harry, paranoia is NOT your friend.

These are no more conpiray theories than was Watergate-—where no one died. Of course, to the dems no one dying might be a conspiracy theory.

I seem to recall the demon-rats crying about how the seriousness of the charges DEMAND investigations to get to the bottom of things.

Well, isn't 4 dead Americans serious? Oh, wait, we are talking about the demon-rats here. Just like Stalin said, "You have to break some eggs while making an omelette." And trying to funnel weapons to Al Queda backed Syrian rebels without revealing the fact that the Obama regime LOVE funneling weapons to drug cartels and terrorist organizations, while trying to disarm the law-abiding American public. Now THAT'S a really BIG omelette!
