WASHINGTON -- Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) will seek to force a vote in Congress on creating a select committee to investigate the Obama administrations handling of the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Following the cancellation of a House hearing this week on the Benghazi attacks, Rep. Stockman announced his intention to file a discharge petition to force a vote on Rep. Frank Wolfs H. Res. 36, which would establish a Select Committee to investigate the Benghazi attacks.
Congressman Wolf has fearlessly led the fight for justice on this issue. The whole nation owes Congressman Wolf a deep debt of gratitude. Some House Democrats now appear to be openly interfering with the investigation and intimidating witnesses, which only raises more questions about the White Houses involvement, said Stockman. The only way were going to get a clean and thorough investigation is by forcing a vote with a discharge petition.
The House Foreign Affairs Committee, of which Rep. Stockman is a member, had originally scheduled a hearing, entitled Benghazi: Progress on State Department Accountability, for Thursday, July 18 at 10 a.m.
According to Rep. Wolf, a Select Committee is the only way to effectively conduct an investigation the attacks.
If 218 House members, a majority of the chamber, sign the discharge petition H. Res. 36 would be recalled from committee and considered on the floor.
Where is the GOP on this?
In bed with Obama and the al Qaeda. Kissing. Lovie dovie.
Is the video guy still in jail?
I guess he doesn’t have any attorneys.
” Anyone know where Boehner is on this? “
Drinking heavily, in a dark bar.
I think Eric Holder should investigate 0bama for violating the civil rights of the four white men who were abandoned to die by their black Commander-In-Chief.
Backdoor Boehner supporting the Lawless One...
Boehner? Someone presented him with a manila folder full of incriminating Emails, photos, phone calls, text messages, receipts, etc., diligently gathered by the NSA at the behest of 0bama/Holder. Blackmailed into Inaction, he is.

Any GOP House member who does not support this discharge petition should be thrown out of office next year. Tell your Congress critter this in no uncertain terms: You shouldn’t be able to murder four government employees by dereliction of duty and get away with it, even if you are Sec. of State and President.
Yes, he is. I read a blurb on this a few days ago, and AFAIK, there is something coming up in September, but I forget what exactly, as for type of hearing or the next step in the process...
This is good. I hope there is more of this— congresscritters actually doing what they are sent to do.
Is this just messing with Issa’s investigation?
Does Issa’s commitee have too much on it’s plate?
I want all these scandals investigated, but I think it is too much to be handled by one commitee. The work needs to be divided.
Push it all the way.
A Two fisted pump on this one.. Why the delay? Why the denial? why all the diversions?
Standard operating procedure for today’s Big GUbamint No Fault Gubamint.
Get used to it or CHANGE IT!!
Delay and denial was to get the Zimmerman trial out of the way. Also Issa hasn’t been particularly determined about this. Or anything for that matter.
That’s the ticket!
After all, SOOO much good came from from the 9/11 c0mmission!
Save your replies. I have no faith or trust in ANYTHING our government does anymore and only ACTION will persuade me to think otherwise.
Yeah, Issa kind of reminds me of a sailboat with no sail, or motor, or oars, or rudder, or even a hull for that matter.
Thank you for the links, is it going to be put on the sidebar closer to the 27th? I don’t want to miss following this!
Special Operations Speaks to Unroll Record-Setting Petition/Scroll Down Capitol Building Steps Demanding Benghazi House Select Committee
High profile event will highlight filing discharge petition for H. Res 36 nationwide grassroots campaign to follow
WHAT: A press conference to unroll largest petition ever presented to Congress, containing the signatures of 700 Special Operations veterans demanding a House Select Committee to investigate the Benghazi Terrorist Massacre.
The dramatic unrolling of the 60-foot long petition/scroll down the House Ceremonial Stairway will be the opening volley in a nationwide campaign urging House members to sign the Discharge Petition forcing House consideration of HR 36 the bill to establish a Select Committee to fully investigate the Benghazi Massacre.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
So letting an openly homosexual American ambassador be surrounded and trapped for hours, forgetting to check your intelligence and refusing to send rescue and support assets in isn’t a big deal when a Democrat does it?
He's up inside the President where the sun don't shine.
That’s obviously the way democrats see it.
You're Welcome. :)
It's on the sidebar listed in three seperate categories:
Hmmm...looks like I need to look in preferences. My sidebar doesn’t have all that.
Use “Manage Blocks” to add sidebar categories.
Sweet! Thank you!
Boner? I believe he’s in the library, smoking a Marlboro and crying in his scotch.
Good luck and God speed, Rep. Stockman
Have you noticed that with this Zimmerman trial and chasing Snowden the news on Benghazi, Fast & Furious, IRS, and Solyndra no longer exist in any MSM?
If a tree falls and nobody can hear it.....
unbelievable, or maybe not, what with this crowd in power
maybe the tree hasn’t fallen yet, let’s see if Stockton is successful.
In the meantime, check this out...
The time has come to make a specific set of charges as related to Benghazi—and force the administration out of hiding or into a de facto admission of guilt. It’s the way those creeps play.
So what is a Select Committee going to do that the House Committee hasn’t?
A Select Committee would provide a coordinated effort. As it stands now, different committees are fumbling around and in some cases duplicating one anothers efforts. There’s no real focus.
The Heritage Foundation has this to say...
Good for him. He knows of course he will be on Boner’s S$%t list. Boner has Zero’s back all the way.
If you are waiting for the GOP to do anything about this
you are SOL. They are in on it and are just as dirty as
the Tards. Hint, one of these parties rule and the other
is just a distraction.
