Illegal Immigration is relatively quiet. Hmmmmm. What is in those 800+ pages?


It’s what is NOT in there that ought to be of concern too. There is no meaningful border enforcement despite the insane lies Marco Rubio keeps telling (even in paid political ads). But then the fact that Rubio’s chief of staff and main immigration guru serves on an editorial advisory board that includes George Soros should be cause for yet greater concern.

Should we consider the possibility that Rubio has been a plant from the get-go? (I think we should.)

Obama will never be impeached and convicted by any democrat for ANYTHING he does or will do.

There is no bad for them at all. They’ll continue to lie, cheat and steal to ensure the rabble doesn’t notice.


Again yes to all of it. But there is a silver lining in the darkest clouds—that is, Carter led to Reagan, Chamberlain led to Churchill, Sovietization led to Lech Walesa. As leftist states further deteriorate, the chances for conservatism rise.

don-o, we’ve had lots of John Deans come and go. The media only cares if they’ve got the goods on Republicans.

The whole Nixon thing was really a successful coup against the Republicans anyway. The affair was tame compared to the crap that went on (and continues) in the subsequent democrat White Houses.

Hicks was interviewed by the ARB.

One of the witnesses testified (under oath) that he was not able to read the classified ARB report. btw, I heard Levin assert that Hillary was not under oath when she testified. Anyone hear this?

A coincidence the IRS story breaks when it is announced more Whistleblowers are coming forward about the murders of Stevens and others. This is an old Clinton tactic. Change the subject. Feed the lazy media their talking points. Do their work for them and they will run with it like the useful idiots they are. Who is behind all these lies?

So people were not rescued because of Obama political reasons. People died because it was more important for Obama to be elected. The media went along with it too because they are Democrat Party soldiers who march to the beat of the Obama Machine drum. Republicans in Washington sit back and watch the Obama parade march on.

Team Obama is so eager to get Benghazi off the front burner they threw their own IRS under the bus.

Impeachment is a pipe dream, I agree. The media makes that happen—or doesn’t. The idea that THIS media will advance the cause of impeachment is lunacy.

But I do think the chance for sullying Rodham is what matters most about the scandal at this point. As the 2016 heir apparent, I think she has some dubious marks against her as it is. Benghazi could be the wedge issue that makes her a loser in the general election, swaying just enough of the idiot vote away from her.

She’s the one who made the 3 am phone call ad and look how easily Benghazi can be used to undercut her CIC credentials.

Plus, as bad as she looks these days (I don’t like disparaging someone’s looks even a vile commie but facts are facts) I see a bloc of reality TV voters out there probably ready to find some excuse for voting against her.

Let’s not kid ourselves, sex sells and she’s a mess.

There is a shoe yet to drop - gun running to the Syrian so-called rebels. The hearing edged up to that in asking why there was even this facility in Benghazi. All they got was that it was at Hillary's behest.

All true, but it looks like they may have overplayed their hand. If played right there could be some blowback.

BTW: I will finish “The Republic of Texas 2022” this week. I would like around 10 people to review it.

If you want FReepmail me your email address and I will send a PDF of it when it is finished for you to review.

Pretty good back and forth on FOX who had Susan Rice lying right after the Benghazi attack. Adam Smith, lying RAT-Wash, who originally contradicted Rice, reverses himself and is now defending the administration.

Hmmmm. Counsel to the President? Lots of those? I musta missed that...

Regardless, I consider impeachment of The Dear Leader a remote possibility and a potential distraction at this point. The realistic hope is to remove the Dem control of the Senate while holding the House in 2014. Crippling Hillary for 2016 is icing on the cake.

Reps. Mike Rogers, R-Mich : The failure to protect the Cole
and go after the terrorists contributed to what followed.


"Victims of Cole bombing upset
"A top officer slammed Obama's decision to seek the withdrawal of charges against the 2000 suspected U.S.S. Cole ship bomber."


"Impeach Obama Says Sister of Cole Sailor Killed in Terror Attacks
"The sister of Seaman James McDaniels, a sailor killed in the terror attack on the U.S.S. Cole wants President Barack Hussein Obama impeached
over his decision to withdraw charges against the al Qaeda mastermind of the attack."


"Mother of USS Cole Sailor Declines Obama-meet, Says "I Voted for the Wrong Person"
"After Obama dropped the charges against the suspect in the bombing of the USS Cole,
he asked the families of the victims in that tragedy to meet with him.
One mother refused, and now says,"I voted for the wrong person."

Susan Rice plainly said she based her false “video protest” narrative on the CIA talking points. Problem is of the twelve versions of the talking points, NONE mentioned any video any where. Obama and Clinton both also used the same made up story (including to the families of the fallen). All three are liars and no amount of poltical tap dancing can change that.

Well said, as usual, bray.

It can not be stressed too many times that ALL of these people in Benghazi were left to die without a rescue force - which was available but not launched. If it weren't for the heroic efforts of the beleaguered embassy in Tripoli and some ad hoc help from the Libyan government the entire contingent of the thirty-some Benghazi people would have been either killed or captured. They were left hanging out in the cold against an Al Qaeda force probably ten times their size to slowly, slowly twist in the wind... and die. Then the lies and cover-up began while they were still fighting for their lives.

Obama (the hero of Bin Laden lore) was last seen in a short 15 minute meeting with Panetta and Dempsey at 5:00-5:15PM. Then he disappeared and went to bed? Who believes that? Who goes to bed in the middle of the afternoon when a full blown crisis erupts and you are the indispensable man responsible? Why was he AWOL and where was this "leader" who disappeared until the next morning? Why was a rescue attempt by designated rescue forces denied?

So many questions, so few answers, so few answers demanded by the fawning Obama Media Organs.

I'm surprised Jodie Arias isn't on all the cover-up shows this morning. After all, she was about the only thing on the news the day the Benghazi hearings were going. At least FOX covered a couple of hours before breaking for the rest of the day to join the rest of the criminally negligent Propaganda Organs who breathlessly discussed her upcoming verdict and what she may have had for lunch.

It doesn't get much more disgusting than this.

Will the Whistle Blowers come forward. It seems Stephen Hayes is on this story and doing an excellent job. As someone said earlier, Hannity has made sure the beat goes on.

Petraeus also used the 'video' excuse when he testified in a closed-door hearing before Congress, according to Rep. Peter King. That testimony was NOT under oath and Petraeus dropped that excuse later and claimed the attack was by extremists.

WHAAT!!!

This is also known as AN “ AFGE “! ( “another f...g growth experience “).

McCain is on with Feinstein...”Hillary is a woman who had traveled the globe. Credibility is being lost..we have looked into this with more time spent..blah, blah”...Basically, this is an attack on Hillary.

Now Gregory switches to Immigration..suddenly. WHAAT?
“Intrusions have dropped dramatically. The border has been fortified...It’s our chance!” ( our chance to get Dem voters..ha)

Now “its the Cia’s fault”.

Kinziger( republican) “I was an air force pilot..Your country will save you. Why if there was 7 hours...why didn’t they go after them??” He’s sharp and a young conservative.

Go to jail? Nobody is going to jail!

The perpetrators of this outrage are the very ones who are running the Department of InJustice and would do the criminal investigations and prosecutions! The best one can hope for from them is the Janet Reno line, "I cannot comment on an 'ongoing investigation'!"

Meanwhile, the investigation stays 'ongoing' forever until it is forgotten or the statute of limitations runs out.
