The Benghazi Cover-up (cont.)
Weekly Standard, by Stephen F. Hayes

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 2/21/2014 6:40:47 AM

Two leading Republicans on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence say that Michael Morell, then acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, gave an account of his role on Benghazi that was often misleading and sometimes deliberately false. “I went back and reviewed some of his testimony the other day and he’s gotten himself in a real box,” says Senator Saxby Chambliss, the highest-ranking Republican on the committee. “It’s really strange. I’ve always thought Mike was a straight-up guy, gave us good briefings—factual, straightforward. I mean, this has really been strange the last few weeks—all this now being uncovered.”At issue is

"What difference at this point does it make?” From the most intelligent woman in the world according to the msm and the left! Probably our next President. She screws up everything she touches. She is as big a fraud as man made global warming. The only thing that woman excels at is covering up the truth with help form minions like Michael Morell. Traitors all! Too bad treason as a law no longer exists in this country.

So, Executive Branch minions come in front of the Senate.Lie through their teeth under oath. Dingy Harry refuses permission to press charges. Hillary/0bama/Soros have cushy jobs waiting for them as soon as they exit.
Neat little arrangement every corrupt banana republic will be proud of. Almost everyone frequenting this site knew back in ´08 that we were headed here. The tragedy is, I have highly educated Lib friends who still deny it.

More Political tripe.
Here´s the connection...FTA: Morell, now counselor to Beacon Global Strategies, a consultancy close to Hillary Clinton.

A few questions. Why has it taken this long for this to come out? Is it a another cover up story to protect Hillary´s hide. I wonder what deal was made? Is this an episode from House of Cards?

A new app, JOB TRACKER could show the rewards given all the cover up liars like Lois Lerner and Morell.
Show the numbers, exactly how bald faced, big time lying, ALWAYS PAYS OFF with instant retirement and then a new cushy job at higher pay.
The way corrupt, totall arrogant, dishonest Washington
mal functions every day, and our TV news actors watch it happen (remember, they are on the inside, too, see them at all the VIP parties) and never report these distortortions of reality.
JOB TRACKER, an idea to clean up Washington.

Look at the big story about to break Benghazi Big Time:
The story of sl the dead bankers who tried to tell the monster truths to billions of dollars of banking theft.....
And they died. Lots of them. Canada Free Press broke this sensational story, Lucianne aggregated it, now it´s time for Matt Drudge to come to the rescue and release it on Drudge Report. One more story you won´t hear from Steve, Diane and Brian, our network WALKING DEAD.

Washington DC has made it clear. There is no need for truth, ethics or integrity. Corruption and greed grease the wheels of the government machine. Our once proud nation is being systematically dismantled by those void of morality. Anything goes as long as it advances the liberal agenda. It truly is sickening.

Let´s all take a moment and reflect on Sandy "Socks" Berger, who was given access to the National Archives as a "former" official, where he could scrub all references to Bill Clinton and his minions prior to the 9-11 Commission Communist Show Trial.

I wonder if Morell also will be given a free pass into the National Archives to "set the historical record straight?"

If there was ever a case in the history of The United States that needs an independent special prosecutor this is it.

It does not matter what the investigative committees uncover, perjury, lying, misconduct and any other number of criminal acts. No one will be prosecuted by the Department of Unjustice. We need an independent prosecutor that can bring charges where necessary without the permission of the regime.

It matters who asks the questions. In the key exchange here Representative King asked the key question and allowed non-verbal response. He then reported in the press that Morell had denied involvement. McCain, Graham and Ayotte met with Morell and he told them the FBI had changed the talking points. Only when the FBI threatened to take it to the people, did Morell admit he had mispoken.

The moderates (Democrat-light) of the GOP are so eager to be relevant that they will accept non-verbal answers to questions and then hold a press conference blare their findings.

We need questions like:

Attorney General Holder, I ask you whether you thought it would be legal to use a drone to kill a US citizen having a cup of coffee at the local coffee shop?

Senator Feinstein, under such logic, what modifications would you support to the 1st and 4th amendments to define who´s speech or privacy you might limit?

We are dealing with a government of arrogant slime. Sometimes you need to get them angry to pin them down. Think of the movie A Few Good Men.

It’s been 17 months and they´re still obsessed about the stupid talking points. We all know they lied. It was apparent to anyone with a brain cell they were lying when they were lying!

Why did they have to lie? Why was Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi (a rebel controlled stronghold) on the 11th anniversary of 9-11 without security? What did he discuss with a Turkish representative? Why were Stevens´ pleas for more security denied, and why was the security he had taken away?

As we all know, the above list of questions is only the beginning of many, many interesting queries our "in touch" Republican representatives should be asking in a select committee with enforcement powers.

But to do that we´d have to hold the Speakership in the House. Oh, wait......until we win the Senate in November, then we´ll really get to find out who changed those damnable talking points!

Look for the same thing to happen when the Republicans cut their own political throats, and relegate the Party to Whig status, forever when they pass amnesty.

They will all get phoney baloney jobs at their crony crapitalist donor´s businesses that want the illegals legalized for their low cost labor pools and their retail customer base.

They will be paid double or triple what they get at the taxpayer filled trough at their current phoney baloney political gig, without having to campaign every two or six years.

I tried to email Rep Trey Gowdy (R-SC), but not being in his 9 digit zip code I couldn´t email him.

I called all 3 offices 3 times and no one answered. Finally I got to his DC office and asked for an email back confirming some data that I thought would help for his investigations. That was two weeks ago and I have heard nothing.

Regarding the zip code filters I asked if he was representing the 4th district in South Carolina when he sits on the oversight panel or does he represent all US citizens. His office rep had to admit that he was representing all of us, but would not give me a way to reach him directly.

He puts on a good show, but lacks depth and integrity.

The whole zip code filter sucks -- if you don´t live in the zip code of a member of the oversight committee you can make no input. Going through my local Rep is a waste of time.

Take for example the NSA "we only collect meta data -- just a bunch of numbers" argument. If they can´t tie the number to a name -- are they going to arrest a bunch of cell phones? Why won´t the brilliant lawyers on the oversight committee ever challenge that?

#21, when trying to bypass zipcode filters, which won´t let you contact a Congressperson, try actual paper&envelope mail. Since they´re representing all of us when they sit on committees, etc., they should be accepting mail from all of us.

So, Michael Morell has got himself in a box, Sen. Chambliss. What are you going to do about it?

Hold on there, cowboy!Texas Monthly magazine sued the New York Times on Friday for poaching its editor. Jake Silverstein, who was hired away from the Emmis Communications title last month to become the new editor of the New York Times Magazine, was under contract at the regional monthly until the Times, “without legal justification or excuse,” caused him to breach that deal, the lawsuit claims. The six-page Texas state court action alleges that Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson started recruiting Silverstein in December 2012 — a full year before then-magazine editor Hugo Lindgren was ousted.

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

After his health-care law surpassed the low-ball enrollment target of 7 million, President Obama staged a Rose Garden rally and zinged doubters: “Armageddon has not arrived.” At least he did not declare: “Mission Accomplished.”The country is years from knowing whether Obama’s overhaul of the health-care system fulfills the promise of delivering universal coverage.While large numbers of Americans have found the program very advantageous, including people who were formerly uninsured, many others have been forced to change plans or change doctors — contrary to Obama’s repeated promises.Obama tacitly admits the unintended consequences every time he waives a deadline or mandate in

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.
