Judge Pierro on Benghazi

This is a must watch...best 12 minutes of TV all day Saturday.

If a pubbie wins the WH in 2016 Judge Pierro would be a great AG, and she'd go after Holder and put his lying ass in jail.

This is pure, 100% panic and fear - right out in the open.

Meanwhile, a quick glance at the Sunday shows indicates that the Benghazi bombshell will be diluted with the latest racism saga.

You gotta hand it to the Dems though. They stick together like flies on stank.

If the roles were reversed, you'd see the usual RINO clowns like McCain "crossing the aisle" to make sure the Dems bring down the GOP administration.

The Dims will continue to (try to) trot out racism (like dear leader did at the Correspondence Dinner), as a distraction to the brutal truth of Benghazi.

"While the use of military force should never be ruled out, Schiff believes that our nation’s diplomats are our first line of defense."

...but doesn't care about dead diplomats.

Senator should have responded to Hillary:

“The difference, Madame Secretary, is THE TRUTH!”

“And the American people and this Senate deserve and DEMAND THE TRUTH!”

“The difference, Madame Secretary, is that this was important enough for Susan Rice, The President, and YOU, TO LIE ABOUT SOME BOGUS VIDEO!”

“The difference, Madame Secretary, is that in spite of the fact nobody had any way of knowing how long the attack would last, and yet FORCES PREPARED TO EFFECT A RESCUE WERE ORDERED TO STAND DOWN!”

“Madame Secretary, because you come before this body, and arrogantly and loudly proclaim that you do not recognize what difference it makes, I DEMAND THAT YOU SUBMIT YOUR RESIGNATION, IMMEDIATELY!”

The fewer Dems stonewalling and interfering with the committee the better.

The Dem media auxiliary, as planned in advance, will universally refuse to cover the hearing on the basis that the Dems aren’t represented. The Republicans should counter by hiring a victim of chronic flatulence to dress as a donkey and fill the shoes of the missing Democrats.

The elephant in the room is where our Dictator was during the event, why did he choose to do nothing and let our people be slaughtered, and the conspiracy to silence and intimidate the survivors, not to mention what kind of illegal arms trafficking they were involve in that provoked the attack in the first place.

Then there is the matter of the guy they still have in prison for posting an anti-raghead video on YouTube

This whole sad post-Benghazi attack situation started because the
Democrats were playing politics, trying to save Obama’s job. Now,
the Democrats are accusing the GOP of playing politics. Disgusting.

MSNBC’s Scarborough got one thing right. As far as the Democrats are
concerned Republican blunders are always scandals while their
own blunders are always “just politics”.

That's what I was thinking. Without the dems there running interference, I'm assuming the 'pubs are serious about it, they might actually accomplish something.

“I look forward to Nuremberg trials for them all.”

But, the Dems would still boycott them. The fact is that the Dems will avoid reality until their lives are at stake. This is why there can never be compromise with these type of people and ultimately it comes down to a fight to the finish.

Dec 2013

While appearing to strain to give a recent New York Times’ report on Benghazi at least some credit by saying it “add’s valuable insights,” even Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) agrees with Republican Mike Rogers that the Times’ report is inaccurate. Schiff also contends that, contrary to the NYT’s reporting, al Qaeda most definitely was involved.
