You know, the closer we get to the 2016 presidential elections, the more I fret the uncertain future which may lay ahead for our great nation, courtesy, if you will, of some of my fellow-Americans lackadaisical deportment regarding our decadent State of the Union; a paradoxical departure from everything that America stood for just prior to our president Barack Obama’s untimely election, as he claimed on October 30th, 2008, to being just five days away [election day] from fundamentally transforming the nation.

    Gross incompetence at the State Department, likely stemming from decisions by Hillary Clinton, is a primary reason why Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Benghazi terrorist attack. A source who has asked to remain anonymous due to their proximity to the investigation, said that much of the blame for the murders rests squarely within the State Department, then under the command of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The State Department had final decision-making authority over all of the following: · The selection of the 17 February Martyrs Brigade, affiliates of terrorist organization Ansar al-Sharia, as...

    To make a difference going forward, Trey Gowdy and the House’s Benghazi select committee may want to ask how the U.S. got involved in Libya in the first place. What they will discover is that Barack Obama borrowed a page from the Clinton playbook on Kosovo, a lethal exercise in mendacity unparalleled in recent American history. Much of the mischief I unearthed in my forthcoming book, You Lie!, I expected to find. This nugget surprised me. In his March 2011 address to the nation, Barack Obama laid out the case for America’s surprise military intervention in Libya. “We knew that...

The news that Holder is going to resign should be bittersweet to anyone who cares about racial equality and the rule of law. The damage he has already done to the country leaves a turbulent wake that is ill-matched to the financial reward awaiting him at a shameless and large Washington, D.C., law firm.

Both incidents were sparked by hardline Muslims protesting a film made in the U.S. which insults the Muslim prophet Muhammad.

    Hidden things have a habit of coming to light after a while. This is especially true when the hidden thing is an exposed lie, propagated by more lies and cover ups, and involves the lives of four Americans, Ambassador Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service Manager Sean Smith and two former Navy SEALs, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who were left alone to die at the hands of Islamic fanatics with no attempt at rescue on September 11, 2012. The issue was supposedly laid to rest by a congressional hearing, but only to the satisfaction of partisan politicians, lapdog journalists and...

    A new special committee created to investigate the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya, will hold its first public hearing next week, the panel announced Monday. The hearing will focus on the implementation of security recommendations made by the State Department's Accountability Review Board that was set up to investigate the surroundings that led to the attacks. The review board issued almost 30 recommendations in late 2012 after concluding that "systemic” State Department failures led to inadequate security at the diplomatic outpost in Benghazi. Details of the hearing, including a witness list and on what day it will take place,...

    Here's what happened on the ground in Benghazi. Good men died there needlessly because of delays in sending reinforcements. "No Bergdahl left behind" Obama should have to explain, fully. He has not done so. Here's the September 5th Fox News video, via You Tube, of interviews with survivors of the Benghazi clusterdunk. It does not deal with what was happening in Washington or why the Obama Administration failed to take prompt action. The survivors were not in any position to discuss that because they were in Benghazi, not Washington. They were fighting for the lives of those they were there to protect and for their own...
