Benghazigate, Gowdy, Hillary and Obama


Gowdy vs Hillary

John R. Houk

© March 6, 2015

 

Rep. Trey Gowdy (SC-R) is the Chairman on the Select Committee on Benghazi (Benghazigate). In previous hearings in Congress I recall Gowdy reading the riot act to stupid answers and obvious answer obfuscations. So when Boehner FINALLY Ok’d a Special Investigation in an obvious Obama Administration cover-up, I was a bit excited. Of course the Dems and the Leftstream Media were extremely critical and whining that a Special Investigative Committee was even formed. SO you know there is something to hide when Obama acolytes start pitching their prevaricating two-cents.

 

The email below from Senator Ted Harvey which is leading the Stop Hillary PAC, he brings up the media vilification of Rep. Gowdy. AND that is the primary reason I am sharing this email. Another reason has to do with conducting private business on government emails and using private email servers apart from official secured emails that were hacked. The in-the-tank-Obama media is actually reporting on the scandalous and probably criminal usage and withholding of emails from Hillary Clinton’s private Internet servers.

 

Now I am reading of suspicions that the Obama White House is leaking about the private servers to derail a future presidential campaign:

 

Or to put the question another way, why did Hillary Clinton become the Obama administration’s bête noire this very week, the same one during which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pulled all of the world’s focus onto the issue of the administration’s negotiations with Iran?

 

The answer is because the two are related: This week’s tarring of Hillary Clinton is part of the White House’s political campaign to shut off debate about its hoped-for deal. It’s not hard to see why they’re anxious. With Netanyahu’s speech forcing lawmakers and editorial writers to face up to the proposed agreement’s manifest problems, the administration fears the prospect of Democrats jumping ship and signing on to Kirk-Menendez sanctions legislation that also would give Congress oversight on the deal. So far, the White House has managed to keep Democratic lawmakers in line, no matter how much they seem to question the wisdom of the proposed deal. Hillary Clinton, gearing up for a 2016 run in which she is likely to put some distance between herself and Obama’s dubious Middle East policies, is the one major national Democratic figure who can give Democrats in Congress cover.

 

… Secretary of State John Kerry, told reporters Thursday during a trip to Saudi Arabia that the State Department will move immediately to review the emails. … Nonetheless, Kerry warned, the process of sorting through and releasing Hillary Clinton’s personal and work-related emails will take time—presumably about the amount of time it will take to make sure the Iran deal gets through unobstructed. (Did the White House expose Hillary’s e-mails this week to protect their deal with Iran? By Allahpundit; HotAir.com; 3/6/15 1:21 pm)

 

More Obama throwing Hillary under the bus speculation:

 

… However, the scandal surrounding the former secretary of state’s use of a private, unsecured email account to conduct official business has only deepened. More importantly, signs exist that the Obama administration is trying to throw Hillary under the bus. Clinton is, of course, trying to return the favor.

 

Hillary Clinton has caused and weathered so many scandals before, ranging from Whitewater to Benghazi, that she evidently believes that Emailgate is just one more speed bump on her way to the Oval Office. One difference exists, however, between the current dust up and all the others. Hillary’s husband was president of the United States during most of the other scandals. The only reason she survived Benghazi is that it had to be swept under the rug to ensure Barack Obama’s reelection in 2012.

 

Now Clinton is in private life and the president of the United States, by all accounts, detests her and her husband. The White House is distancing itself from the former secretary of state, claiming that it just found out about her email practices along with everyone else. It does not pass the laugh test, but that is the official story. (Obama throwing Hillary Clinton under the bus over Emailgate; By Mark Whittington; Examiner.com; 3/5/15 10:17 AM MST)

 

 

Hillary-BHO insincere embrace toon

 

As wickedly Leftist that both Obama and Hillary are neither are stupid. I suspect if Obama is clandestinely throwing Hillary under the bus then I also suspect Hillary isn’t simply going to the middle of the street for the bus to run her over. Mr. and Mrs. Clinton have managed to dodge as many scandals as Obama if not even more. If you think the Clintons are merely lucky or actually clean from the multiple scandals you would be greatly mistaken. If Hillary goes down, you know she’ll pull Obama under the bus with her or even twist around to become Teflon like her hubby and still throw Obama under the bus.

 

As to the email below highlighting the obstructions and walls set up by Dems and the Leftstream media, Rep. Gowdy probably has his bestGowdy- Search Everywhere toon opportunity to crack Benghazigate open due to the dissension among the pack of Leftist hyenas.

 

Now allow me to warn you about this email. As informative as it is it appears to me that the Stop Hillary PAC feels the need to ramp-up some fund raising. Every single link in the email story itself collects your email and then sends you to a donation web page. On a personal level I would love to chip in some do to the worthy cause to derail Hillary; however I am one lonely blogger that can’t spare the extra dough at the moment. If you are in my boat you may wish to not click any of the ten links that eventually leads you to a donation page. BUT Senator Harvey’s message is very valid. Trust me, both the Obama acolytes and the Hillary acolytes do not want any success from the GOP managed House Select Committee on Benghazi. So if you don’t trust the Stop Hillary PAC, find a group – social or political – to either donate money or time in spreading the support for answers exposing the cover-up.

Support Trey Gowdy

Emergency Update — Trey Gowdy

You know House Republicans finally created a select committee to investigate the Benghazi attacks — and the deaths of four Americans.

South Carolina Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy is leading the investigation.

And he has come under tremendous attack from Hillary Clinton, her campaign apparatus, and the left wing elite media — he needs your immediate support.

That’s why I’m leading the charge to support Trey Gowdy. Will you please stop what you are doing right now, and pledge your support by signing your “Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy?”

 

You and I both know Congressman Gowdy has shown a talent for tough questioning of administration officials. The select committee under Trey Gowdy’s leadership was the first to discover Hillary’s use of her own hidden/personal email server.

It’s only taken Gowdy a few months to find what other investigations were unable to reveal after years of “oversight.” Perhaps, finally…Americans will find the truth out about the Benghazi attacks. That is…only if we can keep the committee doors open.

As you know, previous attempts to uncover the truth were met with stonewalling by Hillary Clinton and Obama administration apologists.

Make no mistake: this stonewalling has EVERYTHING to do with protecting Hillary Clinton’s chances of becoming President in 2016. You could hear the desperation in Hillary’s own voice when she shrilly yelled, “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE!!!!” at an earlier fact-finding hearing.

When it comes to going after Bill and Hillary Clinton, you can never hope to defeat them in the news media — the elite media loves them. And the Clintons and their friends in the news media will do everything they can to discredit and Trey Gowdy and his Committee investigating Benghazi.

That’s why you and I — and the American people — must stand up and stand behind Trey Gowdy and the efforts of his committee.

Will you stand up for Congressman Gowdy by signing your “Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy?”

 

Clearly, Hillary Clinton and those surrounding her think the deaths of four brave Americans makes no difference. Clinton simply cannot be troubled with anything that might stain the red carpet that has been rolled out for her Presidential run by the liberal elite and their accomplices in the media.

John, now that Trey Gowdy’s Congressional fact-finding mission has begun to uncover the truth…Gowdy is under tremendous attack from Hillary and the Left, squarely in the crosshairs of the Clintons and their political war machine.

Gowdy needs your immediate support. Democrats are going all out to shut down the Benghazi hearings.

Let me explain:

 

ü  Democrat leaders in Congress are pressuring the House Administration Committee to tarnish the Benghazi panel’s credibility by questioning the committee’s spending in an effort to cripple and even SHUT DOWN Trey Gowdy’s Select Committee on Benghazi.

 

ü  In an attempt to prevent Hillary Clinton from testifying, ranking Democrat members of the panel sent Chairman Gowdy a blistering round of letters accusing him of showmanship and improper hearing procedures.

 

That’s why Stop Hillary PAC is leading the effort to build a grassroots army to defend and support Congressman Trey Gowdy’s efforts to uncover the truth.

This effort starts with your signed personalized “Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy.” Will you sign so that I can personally deliver your signature along with hundreds -of-thousands of others to Congressman Gowdy’s committee and let Congressman Gowdy know you have his back?

 

Remember, those that dared to uncover the truth about the Monica Lewinsky/Bill Clinton affair and Clinton’s lies under oath about it? The Clinton’s and their friends in the media methodically destroyed the careers and reputations of those that dared to lead the impeachment proceedings, including Congressman Bob Livingston, Bob Barr, Henry Hyde, Newt Gingrich, Helen Chenoweth, and Dan Burton.

Bottom line? If Americans want Congressman Gowdy to uncover the truth about Benghazi and Hillary’s role in it, Gowdy will need our support. So please, take just a second of your time to sign the “Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy.”

Here are just a few examples of the attacks on Trey Gowdy so far by the Clinton apologists:

 

ü  Gowdy is a lunatic: Left-wing publication Mother Jones has called Gowdy a lunatic because he is a “tea-party true believer.”

 

ü  Gowdy is politicizing Benghazi: Democrat Campaign chief, Congressman Steve Israel, and Nancy Pelosi are accusing Gowdy of politicizing Benghazi saying, “House Republicans are spending all their time trying to invent new ways to politicize the Benghazi tragedy.”

 

ü  Gowdy is stupid and confused: Ranking Democrat member Elijah Cummings believes Trey Gowdy is stupid and confused saying, “I do not understand what the House Republicans are doing on Benghazi, and apparently they don’t either.”

 

ü  Gowdy’s hair is unacceptable: MSNBC is attacking Gowdy’s hair. That’s right, far-left cable news outfit MSNBC is even attacking Gowdy’s hair — mocking his hair as “unkempt, multi-directional silver locks.”

 

These are just a few of the outrageous attacks Trey Gowdy is experiencing on a daily basis.

That’s why your personalized “Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy” is so important. Please click here immediately and let Congressman Gowdy know you have his back.

 

We need to let him know he has the support of Americans across the country and that we will have his back when faced with the mudslinging onslaught that is sure to come his way.

If Congressman Gowdy can finally uncover the truth, then, perhaps we can stop Hillary once and for all…because, she MUST BE STOPPED.

And in order to achieve that goal, WE NEED YOU ON OUR TEAM TODAY.

Here’s how you can help:

 

1.      First, go here and sign the “Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy. It’s important that Congressman Gowdy knows that we have his back.

 

2.      Tell your friends! Please forward this email to every friend or family member that agrees with you that we MUST stop Hillary tomorrow by supporting Congressman Trey Gowdy today. Also, post on facebook, twitter, and every other social media outlet to spread the word.

 

3.      Make a donation. We simply cannot achieve our goals without building a substantial war chest. Hillary and pro-Hillary PAC’s have already raised millions to propel her to office. We MUST match that dollar for dollar. So, please, make a donation today. If you can afford a donation of $50, $100, $250, $500 or more, I would encourage you to do so today. However, a smaller symbolic donation of $20.16 will go a long way in helping pay for our efforts.

 

[Reader]… the choice is clear. Do we want our next President to be a solid conservative Republican with a fresh and vibrant voice to lead our country? Or do we want the ultra-liberal, retread that is Hillary Clinton?

Please, don’t delay, join our team by signing the “Statement of Support for Congressman Trey Gowdy” and making a donation today.

For America!

 

Senator Ted Harvey

P.S. Trey Gowdy is our best hope to finally get the answers Americans deserve, but he needs our help now more than ever. Chip in just $5 (or more if you can afford it) so we’ll have the funds to support Gowdy and protect him from the Clinton media machine as he digs to clear the federal stonewall!

About StopHillaryPAC

 

Stop Hillary PAC was created for one reason: to ensure Hillary Clinton never becomes President of the United States.

 

The American way of life is under attack. Hillary Clinton is the liberal standard-bearer for the next generation of liberal creep on our Constitutional rights. Stop Hillary PAC is committed to saving America from this destructive far-left, liberal cancer that’s trying to move our country further to the left.

 

Hillary Clinton is one of the most powerful – and liberal – politicians today. She has staked out very liberal positions since her early days in Arkansas. While in the White House, Senate, and Obama administration, Hillary led the charge to transform America into a bastion of liberalism. Now, she has set her eyes on the presidency.

 

Today there is not a more powerful, well-connected politician in America than Hillary Clinton. As president, her power and liberal stances would threaten to do real harm to the American way of life.

 

Take a quick look at her record on these important issues:

 

·         Hillary voted for and supports huge budget deficits that are bankrupting America.

 

·         Hillary is anti-gun. She supports Bill Clinton’s gun ban legislation, banning assault weapons and creating a national gun registry.

 

·         Hillary supports amnesty for illegal immigrants

 

·         Hillary is at the center of the Benghazi disaster, the first killing of a US Ambassador in over 30 years – yet uttered the infamous words… “what difference does it make.”

 

·         Hillary’s career has been marked with scandals, from Whitewater to Benghazi.

 

·         Hillary has supported higher taxes on virtually every segment of society justifying them by saying, “We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.”

 

·         Hillary supports forcing workers to join unions as a condition of their employment.

 

·         Hillary supports late term and taxpayer funded abortions.

 

 

We could go on and on and on… the bottom line is America can’t survive more Obama-era radical liberal policies. Another four years a Clinton White House is simply an extension of Obama’s disastrous tenure.

 

Right now, wealthy progressives are raising millions of dollars for Hillary Clinton’s impending 2016 campaign. They want their liberal utopian vision to become an American reality.

 

That’s why we cannot sit idle.

 

We must stand together to stop Hillary Clinton right now. Because in 2016…it will be too late.

Benghazi Action Alert Before State of the Union

Benghazi Action Alert Before State of the Union!

Will President Obama Mention the Benghazi Investigation in his State of the Union Address Tomorrow Night?

 

By Brigitte Gabriel

*** IMPORTANT LEGISLATIVE ACTION ALERT ***

 

Tomorrow night, President Obama will update the nation on the State of the Union. During this time, he will surely discuss many issues. At ACT! for America, our question is: will he update the American people on the investigation into the September 11, 2012, jihadist terror attack on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi? Will he announce the imminent arrest of the responsible jihadists? Will he announce the termination of members of his administration who were negligent in their duties?

Senator Ted Cruz, who has introduced S.Res.225, legislation in the U.S. Senate creating a joint House/Senate Committee to investigate Benghazi released a list of five questions that he thinks Americans deserve to have addressed by President Obama during the State of the Union. Question number four is “Will the President call on Congress to form a Joint Select Committee to finally discover the truth of why four Americans perished in a preventable terrorist attack in Benghazi 16 months ago?”

If the administration’s deafening silence of the last year and a half is any indication, the answer doesn’t look promising.

Yet even in spite of the continued stonewalling by both the administration and the U.S. Congress, the American people have continued to vociferously demand answers about Benghazi – and so it has remained in the news. Thank you.

It is therefore critical that we continue to let our federal elected officials know that the American people will not forget the Benghazi attack; we will not forget the four Americans who were brutally murdered that night, including a U.S. Ambassador; and we will not abandon their still grieving families.

Just last week alone, there has been much attention on the Benghazi issue:

 

o   Representative Frank Wolf (R-VA), who has introduced legislation creating a short term special congressional committee to investigate the Benghazi attack, once again implored Speaker Boehner via a letter to create a special committee in his chamber. It was a powerful, well-written letter and we think it’s worth a read.

 

o   Greg Hicks, the Deputy Chief of Missions under Ambassador Stevens, wrote a compelling op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on the Benghazi issue, in which he responds to the latest attempts to blame the Ambassador for not being prepared for the attack.

 

o   Ruth Marcus wrote a column in the Washington Post in which she stated her view that the Benghazi attack was preventable and noting how there has been so little accountability.

 

o   New Members of Congress continue to be added to the ranks of cosponsors of Rep. Wolf’s legislation – with over ¾ of the House majority caucus now on the bill.

 

The Benghazi issue will only be addressed to the satisfaction of the American people when the American people demand it. Our federal legislators ultimately will listen to their constituents if they understand that their jobs are on the line. We are proud to see so many of our grassroots members continue to be vocal on this issue. You are making a difference. Keep it up.

As we lead up to tomorrow night’s State of the Union address, can I count on you to take the very important actions noted below?

** Important Benghazi Action Items **

Please contact your legislators in the both the U.S. House and Senate to express your support for legislation creating a special congressional committee to investigate the Benghazi attack. As always, please be respectful at all times.

Further, please pass this request on to everyone you know.

BENGHAZI: THE MORE WE HEAR, THE WORSE IT GETS

BENGHAZI: THE MORE WE HEAR, THE WORSE IT GETS

The more time that passes since the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack that killed four Americans, including a U.S. Ambassador, the more we hear troubling information about it.

For example, just last week the following concerning allegations came to light:

 

1.   Months before the attack, American intelligence knew about a massive al-Qaeda rally during which there were calls for the murder of U.S. diplomats. Further, U.S. intelligence officials circulated not one, but THREE reports within the Departments of Defense, State and multiple intelligence agencies detailing these threats. Click HERE for an article providing more details.

 

2.   The attackers knew the location of Ambassador Stevens’ safe room, beforehand. Click HERE for more details.

 

In addition, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA/22nd) recently sent a letter to Speaker John Boehner regarding his concerns about Benghazi. His letter included nine important questions that he feels deserve answers and we couldn’t agree more.

Further, in a recent interview with Chris Wallace, Rep. Nunes spoke about his concerns with “discrepancies” between statements of the survivors of the attack and the Administration.

Our enemies are watching as the Administration and the U.S. Congress continue to demonstrate that the Benghazi attack isn’t a high priority. This makes our nation and our citizens more vulnerable, both at home and abroad.

As of today, 178 members of the U.S. House of Representatives (more than a supermajority) have publicly stated their support for the creation of a special committee by signing on as a cosponsor to Rep. Frank Wolf’s legislation, H. Res. 36. Is YOUR Representative on the bill? And if not, why not?

 

** Important Benghazi Action Item **

 

Please contact your legislator in the U.S. House of Representatives TODAY to express support for H. Res. 36, Rep. Frank Wolf’s legislation creating a special congressional committee to investigate the Benghazi attack. Further, please pass this request on to everyone you know.

Click HERE to obtain contact information for your House Representative.

Click HERE for a list of Members that have already cosponsored Rep. Wolf’s bill and if your House legislator is on the list, be sure to thank him/her!

After one year of alternative approaches yielding no positive results, there is no excuse for a Member of Congress to not support a special Benghazi committee at this time.

Two more additional important facts:

 

1.   The special committee would be comprised of members of each of the 5 congressional committees that have Benghazi in their jurisdiction, and could use the information those committees have received to-date (so no “starting over” is necessary).

 

2.   The special committee would not cost the taxpayer one dime.

Please let your Representative know that this is a very important issue to you and that you are a constituent and a voter. Let him/her know that you will be tracking how the U.S. Congress handles the Benghazi issue. As always, please be respectful at all times.

(NOTE: H. Res. 36, Rep. Wolf’s Benghazi bill, is NOT the same as H. R. 36. Please be sure to accurately identify the legislation we are supporting, to avoid confusion.)

 

Thank you for all that you do. Together we ARE making a difference.

 

REMEMBER, YOUR VOICE COUNTS! IF EACH OF US DOES JUST A LITTLE, TOGETHER WE CAN ACCOMPLISH A LOT!

Sen. Graham claims Benghazi survivors ‘told to be quiet’ by administration


Published March 15, 2013

FoxNews.com

 

VIDEO: http://video.foxnews.com/v/2229095903001/

 

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, in an extensive interview with Fox News, alleged that the injured survivors of the Benghazi terror attack have been “told to be quiet” and feel they can’t come forward to tell their stories — as he urged the House to subpoena the administration for details if necessary.

 

The South Carolina senator said he’s “had contact” with some of the survivors, calling their story “chilling.” He told Fox News that “the bottom line is they feel that they can’t come forth, they’ve been told to be quiet.”


The White House is denying any attempt to exert pressure on the surviving victims.

 

“I’m sure that the White House is not preventing anyone from speaking,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said, when asked about the survivors.

 

But Graham said he thinks the administration is “trying to cover it up,” citing the valuable information the survivors hold.

 

“The best evidence of what happened in Benghazi is not a bunch of politicians in Washington trying to cover their political ass,” Graham said. “This is the people who lived through the debacle, and I’m going to do all I can to get them before the Congress and American people.”

 

He continued: “We cannot let this administration or any other administration get away with hiding from the American people and Congress, people who were there in real time to tell the story.”

 

Graham continued to voice concern about the inaccurate or incomplete accounts that came from the Obama administration in the days following the attack. He is among a handful of Republican lawmakers pressing for access to and more information about the survivors.

 

But he had pointed words for the House Republican leadership, as he urged them to issue subpoenas if the administration does not release the names of the survivors.

 

“To our leadership in the House, you’re gonna have to up your game on Benghazi,” he said.

 

For his part, Graham vowed to “make life difficult in the Senate” in order to get the information he wants, suggesting that would involve holding up nominations.

 

“(The public needs) to hear from people who were on the ground, their desperate situation. They need to understand from people who were there for months how bad it was getting and how frustrated they were that nobody would listen to them and provide aid when they were requested,” Graham said. “This is a story of an administration deaf and blind to the reality of what people were living with every day in Libya.”

 

He said they should be able to “tell their story without fear,” accusing the administration of “hiding from the American people and Congress the primary source of truth in Benghazi – people who lived through it.”

 

A congressional source tells Fox News that Hill staffers investigating the attack believe about 37 personnel were in Benghazi on behalf of the State Department and CIA on Sept. 11. With the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, about 33 people were evacuated. Of them, a State Department official confirmed there were three diplomatic security agents and one contractor who were injured in the assault — one seriously.

 

A diplomatic security source told Fox News the State Department diplomatic security agent who was in the most serious condition suffered a severe head injury during the second wave of the attack at the annex.


This agent was described as the likely State Department employee visited at Walter Reed Medical Center by Secretary of State John Kerry in January.

 

While not denying the details, the State Department official offered no comment on the nature of the injuries or whether the agent was visited by Kerry or Hillary Clinton before she left office.

 

Leading Republicans in the Senate and House have been calling on the State Department to identify the injured and make them available to congressional investigators. So far, they say their calls have gone unanswered.

 

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said the administration has provided “zero” documents on the matter and has not provided names of those attacked.

 

Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., has gathered about 60 signatures in support of a select committee to investigate the Benghazi terrorist attack. Wolf has said the committee is the most thorough and efficient approach to resolving the lingering underlying questions rather than the competing and overlapping committee jurisdictions.

 

Wolf, along with Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., and leading Senate Republicans Graham, John McCain of Arizona, and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire have pressed the State Department for answers.
