Trey Gowdy Stuns The Media
Into ‘Deafening’ Silence With Some
Hard-Hitting Questions About Benghazi

Independent Journal Review, by Emily Hulsey

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 5/18/2014 5:19:33 AM

If this clip is any indication, Rep. Trey Gowdy won’t be letting the media off the hook for its silence on Benghazi: Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) turned the tables on the media and asked them questions about Benghazi . The silence was deafening. It seems like those in the room are a little embarrassed when Gowdy calls them out, and why shouldn’t they be? It is their responsibility to go after the hard questions – and when it comes to Benghazi, many asked nothing but fluff.

Comments:
That´s all of the text. The main thing is the video clip.

Double wow. Finally, at last, someone in the GOP holding the loathsome MSM to account for collusion with Obama administration wrongdoing. At last, and finally!!!

I wouldn´t worry about the media attacking Mr Gowdy. He, unlike most in the GOP, doesn´t back down while most in the MSM are cowards when it comes to a real fight.

This video should be posted all over the Internet. I urge you all to share it on FB and other social media and email to all your contacts. Trey Gowdy has done in a little over three minutes what should have been done five years ago and that is to question the media about their lack of curiosity when it comes to Obama. God bless Trey! If we had more like him in Washington DC, this nation would be a much better place. Pray for his safety. You do not charge the gates of hell and suffer no consequences. I bet the media was reeling when he left the room. I have always liked this young man. He is a man to be admired. Well done, Trey.

Definitely a Must Read. Send it to everyone you know. I don´t think Gowdy is afraid of the media attacking him. And #17, he doesn´t need to address individual members of the media, because they are all complicit in their total abdication of their duties as the press.

Obama cannot "bring the Benghazi murderers to justice" because doing so will expose the lies of Obama, Hillary, Rice and their ilk. If some of the murderers were captured, Obama would not send them to Guantanamo because that would prove the evil Bush correct. Instead, the killers of Ambassador Stevens and his only 3 defenders that night would be put on trial in NY. How would Obama and Holder charge the terrorists with premeditated murder since Obama said it was a street demonstration that got out of control? How would the prosecutor reveal the killers´ Al Qaeda since these men were merely "inspired by a video" and "Al Qaeda was on the run". A criminal trial will require evidence, and Holder´s evidence would expose Obama´s lies. Or, Obama would risk having the charges dismissed for lack of evidence. Obama has to continue his Benghazi lies at all costs.

Now this is the kind of Attorney General our country desperately needs right now. Fearless, intelligent, relentlessly pursuing the truth. The Republican Party needs to find and support another 100 or so Trey Gowdys for this year´s election.

And the MSM´s "deafening silence" isn´t a shaming reaction (since they totally lack shame), it´s a strategy. When confronted with irrefutable positions, they consciously avoid responding or distributing that message. The result is that the LoFos never hear it. So it is up to every one of us (as was suggested above) to distribute this video to everyone we know and ask them to pass it on to everyone they know. We have the means now to bypass the MSM and have these truths go viral. Do it.

I want to have his children.

He is a pit bull. Loved him from the moment he said, "I´m just an old washed up prosecutor from South Carolina." I knew when he said it that he was tweaking his inferiors, which are legion.

What I hear him saying to those who would stonewall is "Don´t even think about it."

#31 me too! I clapped and applauded, and thought it was about time someone took it to the press in a hard hitting manner.

The generations to follow will despise the press for their part in the destruction of freedom and liberty in this country, all due to their Leftist/Liberal/Progressive love affair with a Manchurian candidate for the Marxist communist party.

Do you know why it´s taken the GOP almost two years to do this? Do you know why until now Republicans have cowered away from this subject? Do you know why Boehner is still in charge? Do you know why we have to beg Republicans to stop wearing Depends for courage and start acting like leaders? As if the MSM cared one whit about their own failures. This all fell on deaf ears and will result in a justice department creation of some law Gowdy never broke which will end his career, that´s all. And the GOP will help the Alinsky-ites destroy Gowdy. Gosh, how do I know that?

Gowdy was in full prosecutor mode. That´s the kind of questioning that could make a shaky witness wet his pants. It does happen when the witness is not forthright on the witness stand. Just remember that the prosecutor knows the answer to questions he asks before he asks the question.

In a way this video is more powerful in showing the MSM for who they are because this did happen a while ago. (What have they done to answer Congressman Gowdy´s questions since that day?)

They have an agenda, and it is NOT to be watchdogs for the protection and preservation of our Republic. Instead they join with those who attack and try to undermine and destroy the ones who are fighting to defend, protect and preserve our Republic.

Amen to the calls for prayers for Trey Gowdy and all the brave few who are standing with him to reveal the truth. I pray for them every day. May God surround them in His providential care and protection, and bless them with the guidance and wisdom needed to successfully find the truth and carry out their duty to our country.

The lefty media are very much accomplices in the Obama gang´s criminal activities. This is a theme the Republicans can use to go after the Obama gang and the media on a regular basis. By all means, go after them. Divide and conquer. They will be too busy protecting their own worthless rear ends rather than protecting Obama. Hope it leads to convictions.

Go Trey Gowdy! Now who else on the Republican side is willing to participate?

Now we know that there is at least ONE member of the House that isn´t afraid to stand up and speak the truth or in this case ask the very pertinent questions. I just wish that we had more of them. And yes, Gowdy would make an ideal AG. Especially if the POTUS allowed him to do the job the way it was intended.

Trey Gowdy might not goad the lumpen press establishment into doing the job they´ve thus far refused to do, but anyone with a halfway open mind will heed his curt statement and demand answers to his questions. A lot of heads should roll over the forseeable events in Benghazi and the lack of any sort of response, including a couple of extremely prominent heads--one atop a pantsuit, another above well creased trousers.

The main Libyan culprit, who´s been interviewed by the press, has been living right out in the open, enjoying life and marveling at the fact that the impotent, anorchus American president hasn´t lifted a finger to "bring him to justice." This is what happens when an anti-American gets elected to the American presidency, and when a weak, "care less" termagant gets kicked upstairs into the top office at Foggy Bottom.

That was beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. It was also fun watching Kelly Ayotte and the other two try and suppress their grins. They knew exactly what Gowdy was going to say.

Gowdy´s delivery is damn close to perfect. His is not the kind of delivery created by a couple of days rehearsal with an acting coach, this is the kind that comes from the heart and, more important, from the intestinal fortitude required for an effective leader.

Besides the obvious impact this video will spread as it gains a wider audience, at least some of those watching will be motivated to get out there and ask these and other questions in need of answers--and do it with genuine conviction, outrage and honor, not with apologies for hurting anyone´s feelings.

Old or not, this video is something we all need to see to rip away the pessimism into which we are beginning to sink--because it matters.

A video of this awesome statement has been on YouTube since at least early October, 2013. It didn´t have any effect on the media´s performance then and they seem not to be the least ashamed of that fact.

One thing I do hope is that the day-to-day Gowdy effect will potentially crack some of those echo chambers. They may have been stunned into silence in this speech, but they were not moved to act. Let´s hope more of similar medicine will work.

This video has been out for some time and yet not word has ever been mentioned in our paper.

Not one word has been mention in our paper about the VA scandal.

The headlines in our paper are pointless and absolutely dull. I hope the paper is for sale. I heard rumors that it is but I hold no hope for it being purchased by anyone with higher integrity.

The big Sunday gem was obliterated by a lucianne machine.
So, here´s the Short One
Lucianne is telling us this is a CLASSIC, Trey Goudy has given us a classic example of reality, that´s why she gave us this re-run. Just like MLK I HAVE A DREAM, Reagan TAKE DOWN THE WALL, Trey has given us a repeatable benchmark hang the course of the country. Like the demoRats, our GOP is no better than the Boehner WALKING DEAD, the Rubios, McLains
Cantors, Roves, they´re all dead in the head.
Like Ray Charles GOD BLESS AMERICA (Mark Levin played it on his radio show this week) Trey Goudy´s speech must be repeated over and over and over. It´s a classic. IT goes for the throat of the power of propaganda, right out of the old days of Russian Communism when Lenin virtually created State Propaganda, big scale lying to the peasants!
Lenin also taught the other equally devastating part of state propaganda, the art of censorship, NOT telling the truth is probably more important than state lying.
Trey nails it, goes to the core of America´s weakness, a media Pelley Sawyers Williams that LIES by omission of the truth.
Thanks to Lucianne for seeing this and giving us a supposedly recycled piece of vital information, which is actually a CLASSIC to repeated constantly tip every peasant has heard it, knows it, can quote it ! There.

First, this morning I saw the video on "Gaslighting", based on an old movie with Ingrid Bergman where everyone in her environment denied what she was seeing. Until finally, a detective believes her and saves the day. The analogy was made with the psychopathic lies told by this Administration that defy reason and logic. But, as Gowdy says, "so many people buy it."

I will play this Gowdy video every morning. It is a Call to Arms for Americans of all political persuasion. WHO can deny the logic of this well-crafted speech? What an assertive, succinct, factual, non-political statement to the American people and it hits the press right between the eyes. There is not one word wasted.

This, stupid elected Republicans, is what Leadership looks like!

The search is on for two presenters to join Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell on ABC’s daytime chat show, while a backstage battle for control has left Barbara Walters out of the driver’s seat. When ABC’s long-popular daytime program The View returns in September for its 18th season, creator Barbara Walters will no longer have an ownership stake, and longtime executive producer Bill Geddie won’t be at the helm. “He won’t be back,” a person familiar with the inner workings of the show told The Daily Beast, confirming one of the major changes--including the enforced departures of panelists Sherri Shepherd

Federal employees, like all Americans, are entitled to hold passionate political beliefs. Most executive branch federal employees, however, may not engage in certain political activities, thanks to an anti-conflict of interest principle enshrined in a federal law called the Hatch Act. To wit, President Bush requested the resignation of his GSA administrator in 2008 after the US Office of Special Counsel determined she had violated federal law by participating in a video conference with Karl Rove and sending out partisan letters.

NEW YORK – Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza wants to know why his latest docudrama "America: Imagine the World Without Her" was buried by mega search engine Google. "I certainly hope this is not intentional. But how long does it take a technical company to fix a technical problem? “D´Souza told FOX411. “We´re trying to be patient, but this is making it harder for people to get accurate information about the film." Here´s the technical problem: When one normally searches the name of a current movie plus the word “movie” in Google, showtimes and more information for the film typically show up. “America”

Poll: 1 in 6 say immigration

Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

The headlines last week were all about the potential windfall: A second appraisal of works in the Detroit Institute of Arts´ collection had come in and the number was several orders of magnitude larger than the first. The city needs a valuation because the museum´s collection is in play under the current municipal bankruptcy proceeding. Back in December, Christie´s had come in with $454 million to $867 million, that low-high figure the equivalent of an auction "estimate" ranging between a number below which a work won´t sell and another representing its likely maximum hammer price.

How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

Report: Deficit To Soon Skyrocket

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book.
