With the crap-weasels in the government, is just doesn’t matter. No one is accountable and the unjust are ruling over the just.
Not even a few lines to tease our interest?
So far it has all been ignored by the powers that be, and it appears it will continue!!!
Is there hope of truth being known?
Where do they find the people necessary to serve on it?
Anybody here seen Speaker Boehner?
If you do see him, tell him that he has some Articles of Impeachment on Obama to submit before the weekend.
( It is almost impossible to get Boehner to do the work that the US Constitution requires him to do! )
The failures in leadership relating to Benghazi were not limited to the State Department. The tenure ofthe Chairman ofthe Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, has been marked by what we view as significant deficiencies in command. From Syria to Benghazi, there has been either a profound inability or clear unwillingness to identify and prevent problems before they arise. Given the known operating environment in Benghazi, much less North Africa, a strong military leader would have ensured there was a viable plan in place to rescue Americans should the need arise."
Yesterday, we found out that our representatives asked the then commander of AFRICOM, General Ham, why he didn’t order attack aircraft to Libya. He responded that in his military opinion, attack aircraft weren’t exactly what they needed at Benghazi. Our great representatives then failed to ask the obvious follow-up question, “What did you send then, General Ham?” How can you miss that follow-up question?
” Not even a few lines to tease our interest? “
no sir , strictly intel ;^)
With all due respect,the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?Hillary Clinton
Down goes Dempsey. Another dummy who thought he could negotiate with Democrats.
This is after the initial attack on the Compound but before escaping to the Annex.
Those in the White House Situation Room watched the events in real time from 11:10 when the drone arrive.
"Handle It" was what Obama said when notified, went back to bed to rest up for his campaign trip the next day.
what a decisive commander in chief....
thanks for the link. I may take a stab at reading it, I like fiction.
I see. After informing them of the need, it's Dempsey's fault that he didn't get Zero and Hillary to issue the orders to protect the consulate. Perhaps a "strong military leader" (you know, the very people Zero and Hillary despise) would have grabbed their hands and moved their pens for them.
I don’t watch anything anymore. Every time I do I wind up screaming at the tv because they let people make statements and never ask the follow up question that to me is so frikken obvious.
I think it means a strong military leader would have responded to any and ALL input regarding the atmosphere, made the attempt to utilize the chain of command, but remain in contact with the operatives and ordered, on the spot, retalitory action
We do not have a majority in the Senate thus Boehner's hands are tied for getting impeachment. I do not know how long this rule has stood. I do know we attempted to impeach Bill Clinton. We saw how recently the Republicans/conservatives successfully were labeled as causing the government "shut down" a few weeks ago. Which was not true.
So with the medias against truth we are not doing very well.
Totally untrue. The courts have nothing to do with impeachment other than the Chief Justice presiding over the trial in the Senate. Impeachment is a political process, not a legal process. The House brings charges by a majority vote, which is the actual act of impeachment. The Senate holds the trial, and it takes a two-thirds vote of the Senate to convict and remove.
Where do you come up with this stuff?
A general does not have cross-border authority. Only the POTUS does.
So there you are, sitting at your desk with a phone and a fire starts in the room, but you’re told to stay off of the phone .....
Do not cast the idea out. the SC makes their decisions and we are not privy to all the details.
We know the Senate/Harry Reed would not agree to such an effort. There has to be a reason why all this unconstitutional activity by the President goes unchallenged. It was a radio report saying that is the way the Supreme Court accepts or rejects cases currently.
Impeachment is the way to stop some of this illegal actions. It is not happening nor is there outrage for it.
God help America to return America to our Faith and values, in Jesus name amen.
You are still wrong. The courts have nothing whatsoever to do with impeachment. Look up the US Constitution on the Internet and read Article II in its entirety.
Interesting read but hardly bipartisan....in looking over who was on the committee it surely isn’t surprising.

OK, Private ... you are NOT authorized to use that phone.
Zipper-Boy Clinton was Impeached by the US House of Reps.
The US Senate voted to not remove Zipper-Boy from being removed from office.
THE NINE SUPREMES have nothing to do with Impeachment by the House, or Removal from Office by the Senate.
Boehner’s DUTY is to bring Articles of Impeachment on a president that deserves to be Impeached, because an Impeachment must begin in the House.
No president has ever been more deserving of Impeachment than B. Hussein Obama.
No Speaker of the House has been more cowardly in performing his duties than John “Benghazi Cover-Up” Boehner.
No Majority Party in the house has been more derelict in their blind support of a dysfunctional Speaker of the House than the sorry RINOs currently in the House.
Thanks for the redacted list of traitors.
Somewhere towards the last sections of this report (possibly Majority and Minority comments) there were some vry frightening remarks about this whole affair, but they were “cover-up” remarks.
I suggest that all of you read this whole report and see what gems of dereliction of duty lie within (LIE is one very key term).
Due to a shitty computer, I have a hard time bringing up the report and finding things I previously saw in it.
This is a case of “you’ll know it when you see it”.
Each Supreme Court has its own opportunity to decide how and when they agree to hear cases, what criteria they choose, to appear before them. The observation by those interested is they are not accepting cases where the House and Senate do not agree ... it is necessary. If the current Roberts Court says they aren't agreeing to hear impeachment against a sitting President until the House and Senate agree to the impeachment, they can do so. It does not have to be written down. It is their actions that shows what they accept. Boehner is not wanting to butt heads against the President (likely). No point when he knows it will go nowhere. MO. when The House (Republican majority, and Senate (Democrat) majority do not agree on it.
President Clinton was not found guilty. so it accomplished little. Both Hillary and Bill did impeachable actions. MO Power goes to the head of those in powerful positions. Not always, but to some extent, it is heady stuff. There are some that relish in using it. Our current President has done many hurtful actions to the American people. Jobs, and mammoth debts that may well bring America down. Immigration pending. Immigration is to be accomplished on going with quotas, and not suddenly with millions of peoples. MO
No point in arguing, I know what I know and you feel the same, I'm sure.
” - - - - Impeachment of Bill Clinton
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Floor proceedings of the U.S. Senate during the impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton in 1999, Chief Justice William Rehnquist presiding. House managers are seated beside the quarter-circular tables on the left and the president’s personal counsel on the right.
Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States, was impeached by the House of Representatives on two charges, one of perjury and one of obstruction of justice, on December 19, 1998. Two other impeachment articles, a second perjury charge and a charge of abuse of power, failed in the House. He was acquitted by the Senate on February 12, 1999.
Independent Counsel Ken Starr alleged that Clinton had broken the law during his handling of the Lewinsky scandal and the Paula Jones lawsuit. Four charges were considered by the full House of Representatives; only two passed, and those on a nearly party-line vote. It was only the second time in history that the House had impeached the President of the United States, and only the third that the full House had considered such proceedings.
The trial in the United States Senate began soon after the seating of the 106th Congress, in which the Republicans began with 55 Senators. A two-thirds majority (67 Senators) was required to remove Clinton from office. Fifty Senators voted to remove Clinton on the obstruction of justice charge and 45 voted to remove him on the perjury charge; no Democrat voted guilty on either charge. - - - “
* Zipper-Boy Clinton was Impeached by the House.
* The Senate refused to remove Zipper-Boy from office.
* The NINE SUPREMES had nothing to do with either decision.
Impeach Obama in 2014. Period.
Impeachment of the President is no small action, guaranteed to make enemies. Most of the, members in the House and Senate are more interested in being reelected, than in making the President their enemy.
That was then ... this is now. Time changes all things, not necessarily for the better. NOTICE current actions of our President. Research the cases the current Supreme Court accepts or hears. Not very exciting reading, I imagine.
Each Court has their own style and way of doing things.
God Bless America.
The Supreme Court chooses the cases it hears, accepts, or gives a decision regarding. The Supreme Court has the last word in regard to our Constitution and understanding of our laws.
We have seen the law changed recently in regard to traditional marriage,and gay marriage. I do not agree with their decision, I am free to disagree. Their decision becomes the LAW of our land. Legally.
God help America.
But the Supreme Court has nothing to do with the impeachment process, other than the Chief Justice presiding over the trial in the Senate. Why can’t you understand that?
I apologize for beating a dead horse. Some of us have harder heads than others.
