Posted on 03/07/2015 9:23:34 AM PST by Chris in VA
Emails obtained through a federal lawsuit show that two top aides to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were running interference internally during the 2012 Benghazi terror attack.
The aides were Philippe Reines, widely described as Clintons principal gate-keeper, and Cheryl Mills, who has been at Clinton's side for decades.
The emails show that while receiving updates about the assault as it happened,

The "aid and comfort" prong of treason has been interpreted
by SCOTUS as requiring proof of four elements:
1. an intent to betray the United States (which can be inferred from);
2. an overt act;
3. witnessed by two people; and
4. that provides aid and comfort to an enemy of the United States.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious.
But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.
But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
A murderer is less to be feared."
-- Marcus Tullius Cicero
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
President Ronald Reagan
"When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt,
but protects the corrupt from you -
you know your nation is doomed."
Don’t forget the Loral Space kickback from the Red Chinese Army.
Whose side was Romney on, anyway?
What would be the purpose in giving such a warning except to expect some action be taken by Mills?
Romney wasn’t in a position to conduct an investigation, thorough, or otherwise.
But it’s true he could have used it as a campaign issue.
It’s how they developed the ability to launch multi-stage rockets into space. Satellite Killers, weapons and surveillance.
Apparently not ours. I am so pissed at myself I was forced into another situation of voting for the least worst alternative like McCain. I will NEVER EVER do that again.
He didn’t even try. His ONE attempt at the onset of the Benghazi cowardice outing failed because they fought back. He NEVER attempted anything again. Chickenshit coward.
God has abandoned the United States; first the clown presently in office, next Clinton most certain to be elected in 2016.
Same side as a GOP E! Follow the money, it will surely lead to an unholy alliance of mohammedans and communists like the Saudis and Soros.
I don't care WHAT we're being told, I believe it was Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood who attacked Bengahzi, in an attempt to take Stevens hostage in exchange for the Blind Sheik. I also think Hillary was involved in the plot, and this is why she practically stripped Stevens of his security prior to the most dangerous day of the year for Americans in the Middle East (9/11).
I have wondered why Trump met with Romney and a few others that were running for POTUS, do you think he knows about the emailgate and warned Romney and others not to say anything? I wonder if Trump is involved with the ‘dirty laundry’ of Washington D.C.?
For instance, if the media like FoxNews tv hosts Hannity, O'Reilly, Megan Kelly, and Greta had put as much time and effort in questioning and pressuring candidate Obama to release his birth hospital records, his Social Security card, his Selective Service application, and his Occidental College and Columbia records as they have in questioning Hillary about her email scandal, I believe that Obama would have ended up lying about his background under all that pressure, and, as a result, he would not have been elected president, because the American voters would have quickly come to realize what a liar candidate Obama really was.
Way to go Hannity, O'Reilly, Greta, and Kelly. Your incompetence and cowardice in refusing to put continuous pressure on candidate Obama to reveal details about his past were key reasons why Obama was elected president not once but TWICE.
Let's look at how Hannity handled his botched investigation of candidate Obama's background. I watch Hannity. I don't always agree with what he has to say, but I find his show interesting.
1. Hannity Townhall meetings: Hannity has these so-called townhall meetings. most of them are alright, but sometimes he holds townhall meetings on strange topics. For instance, one townhall meeting I found strange was the one about Spring Break problems in Florida.
2. Trips to other parts of the United States and to Israel: He went to Texas to see the illegal immigration problem first hand at the border. He also went to Israel to see the secret Arab tunnels for himself.
3. My point is this: If Hannity can go to Texas and to Israel to investigate important stories, then why couldn't he go to Hawaii---where Obama was supposedly born and spent most of his childhood----in search of the real Obama if, as Hannity claims, he was serious about keeping Obama out of the presidency?
4. Think about this: Hannity has NEVER gone to Hawaii and held townhall meetings to find out what people in Hawaii, especially Obama' s Hawaiian friends, could tell him about the real Obama as he grew up in Hawaii. Why won't Hannity go to Hawaii if he really wants to expose Obama as a liar? I don't understand.
5. For instance, Hannity could ask Obama's Hawaiian friends at the townhall meetings if they saw Obama in Hawaii during the summer of 1980 after his freshman year at Occidental. Why should Hannity ask Obama's friends such a question? The reason is this: That was the summer Obama supposedly signed his Selective Service form in Hawaii. However, if none of his friends recalls seeing Obama in Hawaii that summer, it means that Obama was not the one who signed the Selective Service form in Hawaii in July 1980, because Obama must have been in California the entire summer.
6. Also, Hannity could ask Obama's friends if Obama ever presented himself as a foreign student, or if Obama ever went by the name of Soetoro, the name of his Indonesian stepfather.
7. And he could take us on a tour of Obama's supposedly birth hospital and maybe look in Obama's mother hospital room. He could show us the apartment where Obama lived and the schools that Obama attended.
Again. Shame on you Foxnews tv people Hannity, O'Reilly, Greta, and Kelly. If you had made the same special effort in researching candidate Obama's lies about his background as you have put in researching Hillary's present email scandal, Obama might not be president today.
Cheryl Mills is a NASTY piece of work......but then anyone who works for the Clintons are Nasty....and crooked.
With Benghazi we had Americans in a desperate struggle for their lives and all they needed was to hold out until they were rescued by Hillary and Obama,
Instead we had politicians worried about career goals and far more concerned about how this might impact their political ambitions,
I’m reminded of Teddy Kennedy at Chappaquiddick, those lingering doubts rightly did sink any hope he had to ever become president.
But no worries Hillary, the MSM wont make the same mistake twice, they’ll run it through the spin cycle just enough to make sure its (old news/move on) by the time the Presidential race heats up.
There is two things that would save this country.... Flat tax and term limits for congress. That way we can get these parasites out of office. The longer they stay in, the dirtier they become.
How about Secret Bank Accounts?
