Comments I had while writing this:

Trey Gowdy should be great!

Santorum is getting to be a regular. We must consider why, not from Santorum’s perspective, but from the driveby media shows who have him on. What’s their reason?

Meet The Press sounds good today. LOL! Gregory replaced by soccer! Soccer!!??? Are you kidding me?!

The Anti-Hillary, Lieawatha Warren, on CBS. Political promotion by Incontinent Bob.

Defense Secretaries Hagel versus Gates...

Aside from Fox, no one will touch Benghazi.

He has no meaningful occupation and is working but filing, to shed his loser image.

He is allowed on tv simply because they want to promote a loser

FNS seems to be the only one bringing up the Select Committee on Benghazi.

The way Nancy P has been squealing about the committee, one would think she is afraid of what might be revealed.

==

Lewinsky is back in the news. It seems every time a Clinton is getting a flood of media, Lewinsky does something to get her name back in the headlines.

Enough (of both, all 3) already!

==

Much of the media and the Prez are all giddy over the Sam draft for the NFL.

Enough already!

==

Flight MH370 wreckage has been found again ... in a different location ... maybe ...

CNN continues it full coverage [speculation on my part, as I have not turned on CNN in months].

==

Nancy P disses Issa, claiming he was dumped from the Benghazi hearings for over-reach and incompetence.

==

David Gregory’s Meet the Press gets pre-empted; time-slot ratings soar.

==

Morning AB, all.

As always, thank you AB for doing this thread.

Been busy week but I got one entire eyeball on Benghazi.

Quit the choir this past week….will go back next fall cause I got to sing, folks, I just got to sing.

But with all my new activities being involved in all things Delaware AND this new dog that I love with all my heart and soul…

….well dog Jackie needed a crate; some of you folks suggested same and so I did. She stays in the crate when I leave but for now, trying to keep the “leaving” to a minimum.

Watching the Dems closely on this select committee….love every one the pubs put up. No way the Dems can attack those stellar folks on this committee.

I know Boehner gets hot and cold but I really believe the man is trying to appease both the Tea Party and those awful pubs in the Senate.

Didja all notice how McCain and Lindsay are out and about trying to become part of the Benghazi narrative? Loser-burgers….it’s been TWO YEARS since those four Americans died, since Hillary whispered into the mother of a dead son “We’ll get that guy who did that video”...and I wonder how such a comment will assuage the grief of losing a child.

She’ll make sure the guy who did the video is captured and punished? Silly Americans. We don’t think people who make videos ARE THE GUILTY ONES!

Not to mention the fine, fine Hillary was lying through her teeth.

This administration will NOT survive Benghazi.

I’ll leave you with one final thought about how the pubs should make sure that no future administration sits and allows brave Americans to die….

MAKE BENGHAZI INTO A MOVE!!!!!!

Aren’t they doing that with the Gosnell thing?

Come on Repubs, get Harry Reid’s beloved Koch brothers to fork up some money, find somebody to produce….and make it into a movie….put it on TV!

McCain and Graham….heh….put them in the movie….keep them busy.

Happy Mother’s Day to all Moms!

Not Soccer - EPL - On the last day of the season, all of the games are played at the same time. There is NO wimpy Post-Season.

This creates interest at both ends of the table. Not so much this year, but there could have been three teams that each had a chance to win the Premiership. Man. City, Liverpool and Chelsey

The bottom three teams are moved to the next lower (AAA) division. The top three in the lower division move up for next season. This is a system that should be used by all sports leagues.

Candy Commie is worried that Republicans could push Benghazi too far. She also noticed the Republicans control the house.

Now a poll showing nobody cares about terrorism like that is connected.

FOX News’s anchor does well covering Islam’s latest
terrorism. But his leftist channel calls
the Islamic rapists/murderers: “fighters”, not terrorists.
How PC.

Fox reveals that the State Dept backed the “fighters”,
and that the Nigerian government (and the US) KNEW
of the taking of the girls ... in advance.
It was part of their own legendary “piece”-making,
as they all give kudos to themselves.

Fox then shows Obama whining, squirming how powerful
he is but helpless against his own winds of Islam’s
terrorism. Helpless. How PC.

Shiza Shahid shows again why the US lost the opportunity
of putting women in total charge in Afghanistan
the day it was liberated by the US,
and the day they for a few moments threw off their burqas,
the day before the UN and Clinton and Bush
demanded that they put them back on. How PC.

Fox shows Clinton backing women’s education
and Bush’s John Cambell who agrees that women
must be sold because their enslavers
(supported by Obama and Clinton and Bush and him)
are “grass roots”. How PC.

Shiza Shahid must be flabbergasted,
but maintains her poise and cool,
urging the need to maintain “civil society”
where there is “shocking” (absence of) protection
for women and children”.

Cambell, the pro-slaver representing
the status quo US government (or at least Bush)
says there is no “hard information” of any of this,
and that Clinton did no wrong.

“How many (of the captured girls) do we get back” he says.
He then admits that some have been killed (two).
So he has in a minute shown he was untruthful
and that he has quite hard, and terrorist-close info.
How PC.

It's another boring Sunday Morning lineup as the media continues to put the lid on real stories. The only one worth watching is Trey Gowdy. It's a shame he isn't getting the full hour.

Do you think everybody will ask questions about the new media hero, Michael Sam? Or will they just concentrate on Monica and rehabilitating Hillary?

Becerra tries to deflect Wallace’s and Gowdy’s questions about Benghazi by pointing out that the Republicans are using Benghazi/committee to raise funds.

==

[Like the Dems don’t do fundraising with every hot issue!]

Becerra is a good example of how the Dems will go about trying to discredit the Select Committee, its Republican members, and any results.

I cannot stress strongly enough that the FOX interview with Gowdy and the RAT is absolutely MUST SEE TV.

The lying RATcaucus leader was ripped and looked like nothing more than a skillful hack. He was not effective.

First, this militant Islam, as they call it but truth is ALL of Islam is nasty and nought but an oppressive religion to better control the masses....this Islam is a nasty thing and the US should be making moves to show it for what it is.

And as always, I ask, WHERE ARE THE REPUBLICANS? Why aren’t they out lambasting these people that kidnap girls to sell into sexual slavery? Americans understand stuff like this, yes we do.

Why isn’t there a Republican guest on this morning asking why Hillary’s state department refused to call Procol Harum a terrorist group?

Why are they always a day late and a dollar short?

It’s all a Whiter Shade of Pale.

Becerra's defenses are so pathetic that even Wallace isn't buying them.

Becerra keeps holding up a stack of papers, supposedly reports from the other Benghazi investigation committees.

Becerra parrots the Dem talkingpoints. [Talkingpoints are probably still being refined and tested with focus groups.]

Wallace worries that the public might see this Select Committee as a Republican over-reach. [Wallace apparently got the same talkingpoints memo Crowley got -- see thread post #24.]

Facebook question asking how the GOP Benghazi investigation can avoid being seen as anything more than policitical antics.

Brit responds that it will be a tall order.

Trey Gowdy had correctly stated that facts are not Republican nor democRAT.

WHO CARES if the committee is seen as more than political...that’s why they have parties...a major part of the “checks and balances” in our form of government.

Wahn about to get a major slapdown regarding his calling the subject “a farce”.

Juan just said that there WERE protests in the ME regarding ‘the video’.

When the Benghazi attack happened, ‘the video’ had less than 400 Youtube views.

Juan is either outright lying or just making stuff up.

From the very beginning, several hours before the ‘Internet stuff’ excuse came up,

from FactCheck.org: Benghazi Timeline
posted October 26, 2013|updated May 16, 2013



The 'movie' excuse didn't show up until about 10:30 p.m. that evening.

It seemed to me that Wallace sort of left the comedy of the “deemed” Wahn slapdown to the imagination of the viewers and skipped over it by steering the attention of the panel to another topic in order to save broadcast time.

Personally, I’d rather have seen the liberal-beat down over the basketball-crap segment at the end of the FNS.

See-spin is to have programming at 10:35 EST regarding the Benghazi investigation.

Probably just a segment which allows the RAT hack-o-rama to call in and crap all over it.

Little Mickey Whaaallace was unhappy that the Comie white house sent someone to his T.V. show two years ago, who, we now learn, was lying all along.

Little Mickey, not wishing to uncover any news two years ago, did not press the Commie white house whore when little Mickey had his chance.

(Is prostitute/prestitue a better grammatical use in the above sentence?)

Because now two years later, little Mickey learns that someone from the RAT party was lying to him, little Mickey is getting a bit of revenge by not being nice to the Rat sent on his show today.

I think little Mickey is Racist. How can little Mickey Not be nice the Rat Mexican (or is he an undocumented Rat)

That's nothing when you compare what has been going on in Nigeria for years now. Seems we knew al queda was involved with boko harum for some time. Here is a revealing piece and its from 2011:
http://www.globalresearch.ca/covert-ops-in-nigeria-fertile-ground-for-us-sponsored-balkanization/30259

Here's a clip from above that is really revealing:

“........The Nigerian Tribune has reported that Boko Haram receives funding from different groups from Saudi Arabia and the UK, specifically from the Al-Muntada Trust Fund, headquartered in the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia’s Islamic World Society [8]. During an interview conducted by Al-Jazeera with Abu Mousab Abdel Wadoud, the AQIM leader states that Algeria-based organizations have provided arms to Nigeria’s Boko Haram movement “to defend Muslims in Nigeria and stop the advance of a minority of Crusaders” [9].

It remains highly documented that members of Al-Qaeda (AQIM) and the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) who fought among the Libyan rebels directly received arms [10] and logistical support [11] from NATO bloc countries during the Libyan conflict in 2011. While top AFRICOM General Carter Ham claims terrorist networks pose a “real challenge” to the United States [13], warning of the threat posed by Al-Qaeda and the stock of chemical weapons they obtained after raiding Gaddafi’s weapons bunker [12], the confirmed reports accusing the US of arming and training Islamist terrorist groups remain safely neglected in official Pentagon press statements.........”

We knew this in 2011 about boko harum amazing how news is kept from the public over and over.

Sorry to hear about your mom, AB. I’m sure she’ll be missed by you. Mine have been gone a long while and I still think of both parents occasionally. The memories remain.

To your questions:
Santorum is being setup as a foil for the right as Republicans are moving to the right. The media/press will use him as a ‘good’ Republican versus those whacko’s.

FNC will benefit from its Benghazi coverage. IMHO.

My guess is the reason we didn’t really do anything but send some pencil pushers over there is that zero is probably in cahoots with them.
We know zero was in cahoots with AQ North Africa and these guys— boko harum work with them as well.
So its Benghazi all over again. We won’t take up arms against the terrorists we work with boko harum affiliate of Ansar al Sharia those who did Benghazi.
Sick, sick!

“.............Nigerian recruits were reportedly trained in an earlier incarnation of AQIM, referred to as the Algerian Groupe Salafiste pour la Prédication et le Combat (GSPC) [22], and superficial aspects of Boko Haram’s operations reflect Nigeria’s 1982 Maitatsine uprisings, a fundamentalism movement countering perceived government oppression [23]. As sectarian violence continues unimpeded, the prospects for a civil war between Nigeria’s economically dominant Christians in the South and marginalized Muslims in the North remains ever present. Although most Nigerians find themselves less divided by religious differences and more victimized by the nations notoriously corrupt political institutions, outside forces funding Boko Haram’s deplorable campaign of violence are bent on exploiting tension between Nigeria’s two largest religious groups.

A divided and warring Nigeria ultimately serves the interests of the United States as cited by Zbigniew Brzezinski, top adviser to Barack Obama and leading US foreign policy theoretician. Brzezinski, who co-founded the Trilateral Commission and openly credits himself with the creation of the Afghan Mujahideen [24], has influenced policy that encourages the division of existing nation-states by the succession and emergence of microstates, based on all cultural, ethnic and religious peculiarities. Author and historian Dr. Webster G. Tarpley writes, “For Africa, Brzezinski recommends the so-called ‘micro-nationalities’ concept, which means that national boundaries established in the 19th century should be swept aside in favor of a crazy quilt of petty tribal entities, each one so small that it could not hope to resist even a medium-sized oil multinational” [25].

Following the mass exodus of Chinese business interests during the Libyan conflict, a shattered Nigeria would ultimately create conditions where China’s growing cooperation with Abuja can be challenged and ultimately, disrupted. China has provided extensive economic, military and political support to Nigeria, an important source of oil and petroleum for Beijing. In addition to sponsoring Nigeria for a permanent seat in the UN Security Council [26], China has invested in Africa’s booming telecommunications market by building and launching a geostationary commercial satellite, owned by Nigeria and operated in Abuja, [27] as a gesture of increased partnership between the two nations. In 2010, China and Nigeria signed a $23 billion deal to construct three fuel refineries in Nigeria, adding an extra 750,000 barrels per day of domestic refining capacity [28].

While Algerian intelligence confirms a direct link between Boko Haram and western-financed AQIM [29], Boko Haram spokesman Abu Qaqa claims to have visited Mecca with Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau, where the group received financial and technical support from Al-Qaeda in Saudi Arabia (AQAP) [30]. While US officials acknowledge the presence of Al-Qaeda within the militant Syrian opposition [31], the Saudi Arabian Monarchy and other members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) have created a multimillion-dollar fund to pay salaries to members of the rebel Free Syrian Army, to encourage soldiers to defect from the Syrian military ........”
