Posted on 05/05/2014 4:31:31 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Speaker of the House John Boehner has ordered the establishment of a new special committee to investigate the 2012 attacks on Americans in Benghazi but some liberals dont want any Democrats to take part in the hearings.
Member of Congress told me she will urge Nancy Pelosi to appoint NO Democrats to Special Benghazi Committee, liberal talk radio host Bill Press wrote on Twitter on Monday. Shes right!
On Monday, Boehner announced that he is tapping South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy to serve as chairman of the select committee hearings.
With four of our countrymen killed at the hands of terrorists, the American people want answers, accountability, and justice, Boehner said Monday. Trey Gowdy is as dogged, focused, and serious-minded as they come.
Boehner has long resisted calls from members of his party to establish a select committee he has said the investigations going on in other committees are adequate but said last week he decided a select committee was needed after determining that the Obama administration had withheld documents from a congressional subpoena....

I firmly believe that has been the case for the last couple of years at the very least.
Member of Congress told me she will urge Nancy Pelosi to appoint NO Democrats to Special Benghazi Committee...
Proving, PROVING, the need for a Special Prosecutor.
The American people won’t side with the RATs on this one. Gonna look really bad for the liars.
If they don't participate it all collapses.
These leftwing nut bars want to destroy the system we have anyway and rebuild it into something more to their totalitarian tastes. So of course they won't play along.
The American people did not give 2 ***** about Rev Wright, they cared NOT that he/Obama voted against giving aid to a baby that survived an abortion
At least a small Majority of the County have no respect for God/Christ
But we need to have the hearings nevertheless
I think it goes clear back to the Whitewater days.
It most certainly went back to the Waco hearings. They just flipped off the American public on that one. We killed em, so what. Now, here’s your promotions.
DONT FORGET GUYS “24” IN 15 MINUTES
Its a legitimate function of government only proves that they have no interest in playing a part in it.
Before its done, I expect to hear democrats claiming that they were shut out of the process.
of course liberals don’t care what we think..this all happened on Obama’s watch, therefore in their sick minds, these four brave men got what they deserved..remember, liberals only care about murder, droning, and water boarding when a Republican is in office, when a liberal is in office they can slaughter whoever they want
Funny how they understand that complete non-participation of the opposing party threatens legitimacy in this case, but when it comes to Obamacare, they’re fine with having rammed it through with not one Republican in agreement.
Yes, it was ok to pass Obamacare on party lines but this,
THIS is a partizan witch hunt.
Uh, yeah, sure, what ever.
We can respond in November at the polls.
Bill Press; Another leftist nutcase posing as a newsman.
Nancy Pelosi: corrupt land speculator with inside information who was Democrat whorehouse Majority Speaker.
Don’t let the Demos appoint anyone to the “House Select Committee on the Democrats Cover-up of the Massacre in Benghazi and Subsequent Liars Convention”
Some Democrats who would make such a Committee interesting:
Rep. Bernie Thompson - I see white crackers!
Rep. ?? - If I join the committee, will the furniture tip over just like Guam?
Rep. Maxine Waters - Republicans - they’re all crack pushers.
Rep. Guttierez - “Where the Hispanics be”?
Rep. Alan Grayson - Can’t join the Committee. Too busy beating my wife.
Rep. Cummins - “Hey, Another committee I can disrupt”. Choose me! Choose me!
Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Shitz - “There wasn’t any Benghazi incident. You just made it up to affect the elections.
Rep. Sheila Lee-Jackson - “Blame it on Bush. I’m from Texas. I kknow that he did it. And no, my hair isn’t tied too tight. I just like to look weird.
The Republicans would be smart to pursue the military aspect of this day. As a vet I know that you never leave your fellowman behind. There was a reason that these men did not count. Veterans and military belong to both parties and will be interested more if they knew that they left these men when they could have possibly saved them. The least they should have done was tried.
Republican poltroons excel at bewilderment.
if the D’s don’t participate on the committee, so be it.
(the truth will come out all the easier without them on the committee)
its up to them
Let her play her Marxist games and go find the truth without these clowns. Wish they would have sat out on Obamacare.
Pray America wakes up
Now if only we could agitate them enough to boycott elections.
As much as I’d like to believe that, I don’t think it’s the slam drunk you think it’s going to be.
“The fact that this is playing out in public tells me that they couldn’t care less what we think.”
Why should they?
Its not like it is going to make any of the evening alphabet network news shows. They control those.
Only “crazy people”, and those “Old, gun-toting white racist Christians!” care about this stuff. You aren’t one of THOSE PEOPLE, are you, Mr. Sheeple?
Democrat members of Congress don’t care about what you think. They only care about what people in their districts think, and most have specially carved out “safe” districts.
Sadly, I agree completely.
No Democrats? This is like what 3rd world splinter parties do in boycotting elections.
If the pubs run this in a professional, aggressive, and apolitical manner they will expose Obama’s underbelly of lies. His words, deeds, and failures. With or without the Dems, this needs to be handled in a media savvy way.
Bill Bennett was right. Democrats not standing against Der-SlickMyster and the Monica Deal, was a mess of pottage and that it would destroy their party. It has happened, they are soulless, rudderless an without a keel when it comes to their moral compass as a Party of what they will and will not accept, and they don't give a crap by her statement. Someday even the most unengaged (or worse) citizen might wake up and say that just isn't right. One may hope.
I agree with Rush’s comments this morning. I don’t think the Elites and MSM realize just how angry and disgusted the American people are. Everyone I talk to is outraged about all the scandals and DeathCare!!! And, I don’t live in a Conservative state!
Not if the WH also refuses to cooperate. What will Boehner do about that? Posture and that's about it. While these hearings are a year and half late they should be held - however nothing will come of any of this. Not a waste of time but I think some have mistaken expectations. We do have John Boehner on our side unfortunately.
You have the closest response I have seen. I have come to the conclusion that the GOP has determined that this dictatorship can only be torn down by the military. And to do that, they need the military behind them.
Prove they left those boys behind and cared nothing for them, then move forward.
I pray the rest of America is as disgusted as we are.
The RATs won’t play. This will allow them to call the Select Committee “a partisan witch hunt” and will give the media an excuse to ignore it.
what a pant load! you think those prima donnas would ever give up the chance to blather in front of a camera?
Is the precedent going to be that if Republicans lead it, it is by definition corrupt and no Democrat will participate?
Don’t they need to take part to throw their smoke grenades?
That would be Hank Johnson, from Georgia. He feared for Guam tipping over.
By a margin of 61-26 percent, voters believe that the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi rather than being open and transparent.
About a third of Democrats (33 percent), two-thirds of independents (66 percent) and almost all Republicans (87 percent) say the Obama administration is hiding something on Benghazi.
Democrats know there was a cover-up that’s why they don’t want the truth to come out. Not participating only makes them appear more guilty.
“Boehner has long resisted calls from members of his party to establish a select committee “
As it has turned out, he was right to stall, because we now have evidence that wasn’t available even a month ago.
Like a stopped clock, he’s right, but for all the wrong reasons.
The State Dept also said they considered it an insult that he was subpoenaed
The 'Rats are effectively stating they are completely innocent, while taking the "fifth", by not participating.
What could be more un-American than non-participation in the process. Like the Texan 'Rats that left the state while re-districting occurred. Or, like Wisconsin 'Rats that walked out of their statehouse because of Scott Walker.
un-American... 'Rats... but I repeat myself.
A single member?

One of the female black dimwits with a 70 IQ?
If Bill Press can't name names, he's making stuff up; it didn't happen.
Thank you! No cable, so im hijacking the community center where i live, which is never used. So glad you posted to remind me!!
Democrats only make laws apply to others, not to themselves.
The press better be on hand to confirm that the GOP DON'T PHYSICALLY LOCK THE DOORS like the criminal Pelosi and her band of merry crooks did while passing the ADA, before we could find out what was in it!
Wake up Dorothy! This aint Kansas anymore!
It NEEDS to be TORN DOWN NOW!
Impeach ALL 3 BRANCHES! Dissolve all fed agencies!
Start back with the ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION!
Put the plastic faced witch on the hot seat and let her burn her buns.
Well then, Lurch, the clueless doofus better leave now, because the date of the hearings haven't been set!
I agree with that.
