Benghazi

Gowdy on Benghazi Investigation: “…we are going to do it methodically, professionally.”

Hat/Tip to Conservative Tribune. As we all know, Congressman and former Federal Prosecutor, Trey Gowdy has been appointed Chair of a select committee to investigate the events at Benghazi that led to the deaths of four American citizens, including our Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens. But true to his undefeated streak as a prosecutor, he is taking his time and not rushing into anything. After Congress returns from their August recess, Gowdy intends to begin holding hearings with the Benghazi Select Committee, most likely in early September. Gowdy has already promised to subpoena Hillary Clinton and compel her to testify, […]

Border Crisis, ISIS, IRS, VA, Benghazi, NSA, Fast & Furious and more = Half Month Vacay for Obama

Hat/Tip to Conservative Tribune. Now the Dems have their jaws on the floor over this one as well… Even the most staunch among President Barack Obama’s supporters cannot deny that the White House is plagued by scandals and overrun by crises. The border with Mexico and violence in the middle east occupy many recent headlines, but Obama’s problems do not stop there. This administration is also contending with a spate of legal reversals from the Supreme Court, a sluggish economy, the collapse of the VA healthcare system, and increasingly damning revelations regarding the IRS scandal, just to name a few. […]

Obama STILL Calling Benghazi a ‘Phony Scandal’

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. In a recent fundraiser (what else does this President do?), Obama made some comments that clearly show his disdain for the folks who got killed in Libya in the attack on our Ambassador’s compound in Benghazi. Four dead Americans and an obvious coverup and this jackass is calling it a “phony scandal.” Via The Hill: President Obama charged that his Republican opponents had “nothing to offer except cynicism and fear and frustration” during a fundraiser Thursday in Minnesota. The fundraiser capped off a day Obama spent with Rebekah Erler, a working mother who wrote the president to detail […]

Breaking News: First Benghazi Suspect In US Custody

Hat/Tip to The Washington Post. It was has been called a “clean” operation, Ahmed Abu Khattala came home after a hard day terrorizing, murdering and raping to find and Army Delta Force team waiting to give him a free ride to an ocean cruise back to the United States. Ahmed Abu Khattala had returned home Sunday night after a day of militia skirmishes in Benghazi when U.S. military commandos swarmed his residence south of the waterfront city and took him captive, quickly moving him out of Libya to a U.S. warship. “He was isolated,” a U.S. official said. “It was […]

There Was A Crooked Man…

“I make absolutely no apologies…” – Barack Obama, Democrat “There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile. He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile. He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse, And they all lived together in a little crooked house.” – English Nursery Rhyme “Impeachment is a political solution to a criminal problem…” – Ben Shapiro According to a recent study, rats are capable of feeling regret about their own actions. This sets them apart from Democrats, who never seem to feel sorry about much of anything.  John Kerry, the Norman […]

Bill Whittle: Why Benghazi Matters

H/T:  Daley Gator Bill Whittle knocks it out of the park, as usual, in his latest video regarding Benghazi…

Hillary, do you regret saying, “What difference does it make?” Answer: “No!”

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Hillary Clinton Says She Doesn’t Regret “What Difference Does It Make” Remark On Benghazi… I don’t know Hillary, maybe you ought to ask the families of these four people what difference it makes… She’s already trying to position herself to counter this in 2016. .

Report: Hillary Clinton is Scared to Death of Trey Gowdy’s Investigation

Hat/Tip to the Conservative Tribune. Usually the Democrats just rely on their standard playbook to stay a step ahead of the Republican establishment. But once in a while the old guard in the GOP throws them a curve. That’s what they’ve done now, and the name of that curve ball is Trey Gowdy. Ever since the news broke that the House decided to appoint Rep. Trey Gowdy as the head of a special committee to probe deeper into the Benghazi cover up, liberal Democrats have been shaking in their boots. And with good reason… Liberals have good reason to be afraid, […]

Bombshell: New Source Tells Allen West of Weapons Scheme Behind Benghazi Cover Up

Hat/Tip allenbwest.com . Former Representative Allen West (R) reveals the truth behind the lies and obfuscations by the Obama administration regarding the Benghazi attacks on 9/11/’12. He comes by this via a new source, which he explains below: Today as I returned from Detroit, I had a moment that I truly felt was God sent, as I don’t believe in coincidences. It happened on one of my flights, and it was two hours I will never forget. I was seated beside someone who personally knew one of the men who was there on the roof in Benghazi. This person was […]

And so it begins, the MSM attacks Trey Gowdy

It doesn’t matter that four Americans died needlessly. It doesn’t matter that an American President and his administration lied and covered up their role in the tragedy. It doesn’t even matter that the vast majority of Americans WANT to uncover the truth about the Benghazi Cover Up. Fully two-thirds of the public endorses the propriety and necessity of forming this select committee, which all but seven House Democrats opposed. Fewer than 30 percent have embraced the official White House line on the matter — and by a 16-point margin, Americans say the Obama administration’s general goal has been to deceive, […]

Liar, Liar, Pants Suit On Fire: Some Thoughts on Hillary

by Bob Mack “She was a liar.  She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.” – Jerry Zeifman Nothing has changed over the years: “We’re going to get the guy who did it, who made that awful internet video.” – Hillary Clinton Among the tribes of the Plains, captured settlers most feared being handed over to the women, whose abilities to torment and bedevil were well known — especially by their husbands.  Fortunately, building cook fires on the stomachs of your […]

Daily Beast contributor Eleanor Clift claims Ambassador Stevens ‘Was Not Murdered’ in full spin mode for Obama administration

For those of us old enough to think back that far (to ancient times by today’s 24 hour news cycle), during the Clinton adminstration, Eleanor Clift was often referred to as Eleanor “Rodham” Clift or Eleanor “Rodham Clifton,” due to her brown-nosing, err, I mean strong defense of Hillz & Bill. In fact, this is the same woman who called our brave men and women in the military, who put their lives on the line for our freedoms, a “mercenary” Army. “But I think what we’re coming to grips with is the fact that we actually have a mercenary Army, […]

Valerie Jarrett Gave Benghazi Stand-Down Order

Investors Business Daily has an editorial about how the order to stand down wasn’t given by any elected official in the chain of command, but by a civilian advisor to the President; namely, Valerie Jarrett. The omnipresent power behind the throne some have called the president’s Rasputin had the power to call off three strikes against Osama bin Laden. She may have used that power again the night four Americans died in Benghazi. The Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on our diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, came while America failed to mount a rescue mission despite sufficient time and assets. […]

Trey Gowdy Getting Death Threats from People Afraid He Might Find Out the Truth About Benghazi

Hat/Tip to The Independent Journal Review. We all knew this was bound to happen. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is getting death threats due to his bulldog-like tenacity in rooting out the truth about the cover-up in the aftermath of Benghazi. The U.S. Capitol Police have launched an investigation into at least two threatening emails against Trey Gowdy (R-SC), the newly announced head of the Benghazi special committee. On Tuesday, POLITICO and other news outlets received emails warning that Gowdy would be harmed as a result of his pending role of leading the investigation over the 2012 Benghazi embassy attacks. The […]

BREAKING: White House Defies Congress, John Kerry Will IGNORE Subpoena

This is a case of both sides playing politics, but not necessarily playing well or even nice. Earlier this week, it was announced that John Kerry was being subpoenaed by the House. This is a legally binding demand that he show up, take questions, and help with the investigation into Benghazi. These demands happened after emails were leaked that show that the White House essentially lied about Benghazi for political reasons. The State Department responded thusly: Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said Kerry planned to travel to Mexico at that time and officials would discuss alternative options with the committee. “We are […]

Rep. Gowdy: ‘I Have Evidence’ of Cover-Up on Benghazi

We all know that Speaker of the House, John Boehner finally appointed a select committee to investigate the Benghazi cover-up of the attack and subsequent deaths of four Americans. Hat/Tip to Newsmax for this story, because I think he picked the right person to lead this committee. Rep. Trey Gowdy is a former federal prosecutor and formerly with the US Attorney’s office.  (Newsmax) – Rep. Trey Gowdy said Friday that he has evidence of a “systematic, intentional” effort by the Obama administration to withhold documents from Congress about the 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans. “I have evidence that, […]

Mark Levin Lays Out the Ideal Way to Handle Select Committee on Benghazi

Constitutional attorney, radio talk show host and Conservative Icon Mark Levin knocks it out of the park with this one.    

CNN’s Tapper on WH Benghazi Responses: “Dissembling, Obfuscating, Insulting” Guy Benson | May 02, 2014

Jake Tapper is a former ABC News reporter and is now working for CNN. Even though he works for CNN, he is a damn good reporter. He disregards political bias and goes for the truth of the story which is a rare commodity these days. He was on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show and had some pretty strong words concerning the Obama administration’s handling of the whole Benghazi debacle. CNN anchor Jake Tapper — who interviewed Amb. Susan Rice on September 16, 2012 on ABC’s This Week — appeared on Hugh Hewitt’s nationally-syndicated radio show last night to discuss the administration’s […]

‘Dude, this was like two years ago’: Tommy Vietor talks Benghazi with Bret Baier

Yes, he really did say that. I guess that he is just better able to move on from the fact that four Americans were killed. No biggie, just get over it, already. Sorry, and I don’t usually make attacks on people when I post or write articles here at CH2.0, but I have to call a spade a spade and this guy is an idiot. He is a small minded, careless, unfeeling punk who wouldn’t know what valor or honor or bravery was if it bit him on his smarmy ass. First he tweets about it before he goes on […]

ABC News’ Karl Clashes With Jay Carney Over Benghazi

It’s a joyful site to see when the MSM finally, FINALLY begins asking the Obama administration the tough questions.   ABC News reporter Jon Karl tangled with White House press secretary Jay Carney Wednesday over a newly released White House email chain covering “talking points” given then-Ambassador Susan Rice after the deadly 2012 Benghazi terror attack. Republicans charged Tuesday that a White House official’s email advice to Rice to link the attack to an anti-Muslim video confirms the connection was fabricated to help President Barack Obama’s re-election. At the heart of Wednesday’s 8-minute skirmish between Karl and Carney was Rice’s […]
