    The list of the top Hollywood films of all time for every American film lover always includes the classics like ‘Citizen Kane,’ ‘Gone with the Wind,’ and perhaps ‘The Godfather,’ part I and II. There are always disagreements, with additions and subtractions to everyone’s list. But for the most part the classics I listed are cinematic masterpieces that have withstood the test of time. Last week the viewing public was treated to another performance worthy of Hollywood’s highest honor for acting, the Oscar. In this case though there would be the need for multiple Oscar awards for ‘Best Acting’, not...

    It is of little concern to me that the corporate media says Hillary aced the Benghazi hearing, To me she didn’t, and I care more that the public is being inured to public officials’ lying. Were I running for president against her I’d produce a simple campaign video. My campaign video would be short -- it would be Hillary before the caskets of the four Americans slaughtered in Benghazi blaming an obscure video and its maker for the incident; Hillary telling the father of one of the deceased, Ty Woods, that the video maker would be arrested (“we are going...

Joining me was Judicial Watch attorney Ramona Cotca, one of the key JW attorneys litigating the federal open records lawsuits that forced both the creation of the Select Committee and the disclosure of Hillary Clinton’s illicit email system. As the Washington Post pointed out in a not-too-friendly piece, this hearing would not have...

    The Republican-controlled House Select Committee on Benghazi has released the subpoena it served former secretary of State Hillary Clinton earlier this year. “The committee has issued several subpoenas, but I have not sought to make them public,” panel chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said Wednesday in a statement. “I would not make this one public now, but after Secretary Clinton falsely claimed the committee did not subpoena her, I have no choice in order to correct the inaccuracy,” he added. “The committee immediately subpoenaed Clinton personally after learning the full extent of her unusual email arrangement with herself, and would have...
  • The Benghazi Bonanza: A Bi-Partisan Scandal

    Judicial Watch ^ | June 9, 2015 | Micah Morrison
    The Benghazi affair is beginning to shape up as a bi-partisan scandal — making Trey Gowdy’s life doubly difficult, of course. But the former prosecutor has been doing a bang-up job with his select committee, demolishing the mantra that there is “nothing new” to be learned about Benghazi and building a sober, far-reaching inquiry. Without Gowdy, recall, there would be no Clinton secret server, no Sidney Blumenthal trail, no new emails, and no upcoming testimony from Mrs. Clinton and her inner circle . On the latter, Gowdy is holding firm, saying he will not schedule testimony until all relevant emails...

    A journalist informed me this morning that a source close to Congressman Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) and the HouseÂ’s select committee on the Benghazi terrorist attack, which Mr. Gowdy chairs, has responded to points raised in my weekend column. In the column, I expressed surprise and disappointment that, while Chairman Gowdy by his own account learned about Secretary of State ClintonÂ’s use of private email over six months ago, the committee took no meaningful responsive action: It did not reveal that alarming information publicly, issue subpoenas for those emails, or issue preservation letters to the relevant telecommunication service providers to...
  • Admirals, generals, intel: Benghazi inquest compromised (Gowdy threatened?)

    Gen. Vallely told WND that he believes Gowdy “has received much pressure not to get to the truth, and we are now coming to the conclusion that there is no longer any intention in Washington, by the leadership of both the Democratic and Republican Parties, to get to the truth.” “An honest investigation into Benghazi would prove treasonous acts at the very top of the White House and the State Department, and a continuing cover-up in Congress that now involves the Republican leadership and especially House Speaker John Boehner,” Vallely said. Among the CCB’s most significant findings, released last April...

    Scandal: The California Democrat who suggested that his party boycott the Benghazi Select Committee as a waste of time now accuses those who fought on the CIA annex roof of lying "to promote a new book." The last we heard from Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., a member of the House Intelligence Committee, was in May. That's when he told Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday" he thought the planned select committee to investigate the 2012 Benghazi attack was a "colossal waste of time." Calling the yet-to-be-approved committee a "tremendous red herring," Schiff said: "I don't think it makes sense, really,...

    Scandal: Democrats claim it's been asked and answered, but the question of why four Americans had to die in a diplomatic outpost in a terrorist haven with inadequate security and no plans for rescue has not. That all questions regarding Benghazi have not been answered and new ones have in fact arisen was shown by the recent revelation by former Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell to reporter Sharyl Attkisson. Maxwell said he witnessed State Department personnel sifting through stacks of documents and emails to filter out those that would put the department in a bad light before turning any over...

Led by Republican South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy, members of the Committee have been working for months to interview witnesses and to gather more information about what happened the night Americans Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods and Sean Smith were killed by terrorists.

    Ahead of the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s first public hearing Wednesday, Democrats on the committee say they’re launching an online clearinghouse to deal with questions already asked and answered and dispel falsehoods about the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack. They say the website is intended to provide answers to questions that have consistently been raised surrounding the attack on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, such as why security was inadequate despite repeated requests and whether the Pentagon failed to deploy resources that could have saved lives on the night of the attack. ” ‘Benghazi...

    Is Hillary Clinton a charlatan or just the crappiest lawyer in Washington? As the Obama Left likes to say, that’s a false choice. There’s no reason she can’t be both. The question arises thanks to yet another excellent report on the Obama administration’s Benghazi fraud by the Weekly Standard’s Steve Hayes. The Benghazi fraud is a prominent subject of my new book, Faithless Execution , which traces the debacle from the president’s unauthorized, unprovoked, and ultimately disastrous instigation of a war against the Qaddafi regime; through his (and Secretary Clinton’s) recklessly irresponsible failure to provide security for the American officials...

Trey Gowdy of South Carolina told CNN about the chapter of the book that covers the attack in Benghazi, which left the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans dead.</p>

    A House panel has canceled a June hearing with Secretary of State John Kerry and will no longer call him to testify. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., had planned to grill Kerry about the Sept. 12, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. But Issa, who had subpoenaed Kerry to appear, said he is "releasing him from the upcoming hearing commitment." Issa said Kerry was using the Oversight hearing "as a shield" against cooperating with a newly created House select committee that has been empaneled to examine the Benghazi attack and the...

    The American people are supposed to trust Republicans appointed to investigate Benghazi but as it turns out, the Executive Director appointed to the House Select Committee on Benghazi – Philip Kiko – is a lobbyist for the Smith-Free Group, in which his clients include the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the radical environmentalist group the Sierra Club, Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN), Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF), National Council of La Raza “the Race” (NCLR), and the National Organization for Women (NOW), NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (NLDEF) and...
  • Hillary Stacks the Benghazi Select Committee: Pelosi is her stooge

    Frontpage Mag ^ | 05/24/2014 | Arnold Ahlert
    On Wednesday, Democrats deigned to join Republicans on the House Select Committee investigating Benghazi, primarily to protect Hillary Clinton’s reputation in particular, and the Obama administration’s in general. Toward that end they will likely do what they always do whenever their party is threatened: denigrate the investigation as it unfolds and obstruct it as much as possible. Thus, it was completely unsurprising that even as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) appointed five colleagues to the panel she dismissed the need for it. “The Republican obsession with Benghazi has not been about the victims, the families or the country,” she...

Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.). The other members are Reps.

    It is one of the greatest indictments of today’s poisonous political environment that Congressional Democrats and Republicans cannot even come together to investigate the murders of four American citizens, including a U.S. Ambassador, in Benghazi, Libya. One doesn’t have to be too old to remember a time when Democrats and Republicans put aside narrow partisan interests to present a united position on foreign policy and national security. These days, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, upon announcing the formation of a new select committee tasked with investigating the 2012 murders in Libya, had to immediately defend himself against Democratic...
