Benghazi Security Team Forcefully Disagrees With New House Intel Report: We WERE Told To “Stand Down”

Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. Despite what the White House spin machine says, these brave men who were actually there, on the ground in Benghazi that fateful night contend that they WERE told to stand down. Via PJ Media: Saturday on C-SPAN’s Book TV, CIA Benghazi annex security team members Kris Paronto and Mark Geist answered questions about a report released Friday by the House Intelligence Committee on the 9/11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in 2012.

Full Interview: Sharyl Attkisson, Former CBS Reporter Says Obama Has An Enemies’ List

Hat/Tip to Paul Bond at The Hollywood Reporter. Investigative Journalist, Sharyl Attkisson left CBS after her bosses lost their appetite for any story that would hurt, or even show the Obama Administration in a bad light. In this interview, she talks about an unknown government agency hacking into her computer, her bosses choice to bury her stories, their penchant for labeling any analyst they didn’t agree with as Conservative Analysts and all others as just Analysts, the trend from the MSM’s desire to air stories negative to Republican administrations to their fear of doing so to the Obama administration, and […]

Trey Gowdy Opens New Benghazi Hearings Vows to Pursue Truth “No Matter Where It Takes Us”

  Hat/Tip to Fox News Insider. Here is a rough transcript of South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy’s opening comments on the first day of hearings of the House Special Committee on Benghazi, followed by a video of those remarks. Contrary to his reputation for theatrics and hard nosed questioning of witnesses, Gowdy marked the first day of Benghazi hearings by concentrating on oversight of State Department security protocols, or more precisely: “Implementation of the Accountability Review Board Recommendations.” A little over two years ago, four Americans were killed serving our country in Benghazi, Libya. Two were killed when a facility […]

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 […]

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 […]
