Speaker Boehner, install a select committee on Benghazi now.

Written by Allen West on January 6, 2014

o

I’ve joined family members of the victims of the Benghazi terrorist attack and more than 70 fellow conservative and military leaders in sending a letter to House Speaker John Boehner demanding that he install a select committee to once and for all get the answers and the truth regarding the tragic events of September 11, 2012.

There is widespread support for a select committee to get to the bottom of disturbing questions surrounding the attack, as H.Res. 36 has 178 cosponsors. Yet Speaker of the House John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor refuse to bring it to the House floor for a vote. You have to wonder, is there something they know that they prefer not come to light?

We can no longer accept silence, obfuscation and inaction on this subject.

You can read the letter here.. Please feel free to download and circulate it widely.

I doubt we’ll ever get to the bottom of this massive coverup. The administration has control of everything, and the media is kissing democrat a$$.

I want to see the over and under on how long it takes before one of the sycophants shows up to explain why Bhoner and co’ are taking a ‘measured approach’ and other excuses for why he hasn’t already.

They always do.

Impeach Obama in 2014. Period.

The US House of Representatives is analogous to a Police Force - - - their main job of Check and Balance is to “arrest” the perp by Impeaching the perp.

The US Senate is analogous to a Jury of Peers who have the power to throw the Impeached perp off of the taxpayer gravy train, take away his residence, ban him from building a Library paid for by us, and ban him from using his personal Corporate Jet, Air Force One.

Most RINO Americans want to wait, Wait, WAIT! until they control the House, the Senate and the White House.

To those weak-kneeded summer soldier “patriots” I say “Enjoy the Obamanation that you have tolerated since January, 2009.”

In similar manner, we Summer Soldier Conservatives continue to tolerate a wimpy, hand-wringing, sobbing, crybaby Speaker of the House Boehner as our sorry chief policeman.

“Oh, if only my best friends across the aisle would just play nicey nice - - - “ is the perfect quote that fire-in-the-belly Socialist-Democrats love to hear from their doormat, cowardly, Obamacrat RINOs.

Yes indeed, as long as we WAIT for things to be PERFECT we will never attack those whose goal is to destroy the US Constitution.

Suck it up you sorry House RINOs, and replace John “Benghazi Coverup” Boehner with SC Rep Trey Gowdey, or SC Rep Joe Wilson.

Without a fire-in-the-belly Republican Speaker of the House, Obamacrat RINOs will continue to cave in to “their best friends across the aisle,” to the unbridled glee of every Democrat voter in America!

House RINOs: Pretend that you are paid by taxpayers to fight to enforce the US Constitution.

Fight or go home, House RINOs.

FIGHT or we will send you home!

Impeach Obama in 2014. Period.

_________________________

The RINO Establishment has been, is now, and forever will be a spineless relic that is incapable of protecting the US Constitution.

Commie Obama came in 1-2009, and by 12-24-2009 he had Nationalized one sixth of the US Economy.

Now, four YEARS later, loyal RINO Establishment stalwarts estimate that it will take a generation (20-25 years) to undo what Commie Obama did in eleven MONTHS.

What does it take for the Loyalist RINOs to draw a line in the sand?

As for concern about “loss of political capital” and other Leftstream Media manipulating tactics, when in the next 20 to 25 years would be a good time for y’all to consider to begin to commence thinking about draining the swamp full of Leftstream Media “alligators?”

There are more of us than there are of them, so grow a pair and FIGHT the Left Stream Media!

Remember this: Commie Obama is counting on never being held accountable for his violations of the US Constitution.

BTW, Boehner and McConnell have done their best to not hold Commie Obama accountable for 4 years.

Thus, support for the RINO Establishment is to continue to endorse the Boehner-McConnell protection from accountability plan for Commie Obama.

Very good letter by Allen West but sadly, IMO it won’t get Boehner to move.

Sadder yet is that by him not moving on this he supports the lies of 0bama and Hillary Clinton.

Boehner is the head of the republican wing of the ruling political class. There is no way he will do anything to damage the democrat wing of the ruling political class.

Not listening is a Vichy Republican party specialty.

This. Every time I see him on camera, he looks and acts like someone with a gun at his back, and an off camera handler in the audience.

No, it most likely won't. What is needed is a chorus of calls for a select committee from numerous sitting reps and senators. They need to insert it into every interview they get no matter the subject the talking head has in mind.

Now that the New York Slimes has given Hillary a complete pass on Benghai, it’s up to the GOP to keep her feet to the fire.

What needs to happen is all the people who are victims of these Obama scandals to meet up somewhere and head to DC to call for an accounting.

Our government is a disgrace and needs to be held accountable.

Not sure that impeachment is the answer at this point. Make him miserably incapable of leaving the WH. Cut all funding for any outside jaunts and extra entertainment Food etc. All and every condition one would find in house arrest. PLUS No visitors to brings the booze and drugs No extras of any kind. Pressure him till he resigns in disgrace and let him know his arrest is eminent and there is no escape.
