Trey Gowdy brings ´zeal for the truth´
as head of House´s Benghazi panel

Washington Examiner [DC], by Sean Lengell

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 5/30/2014 5:44:53 AM

Rep. Trey Gowdy´s rise from obscure South Carolina backbencher to chairman of the House´s new special Benghazi committee took a quantum leap last October, when he stole the show at an otherwise mundane Republican news conference about the terrorist attacks. While only in his second term, the conservative Gowdy rushed to the podium and — with the conviction of a preacher and the erudition of a prosecutor — launched into a passionate yet disciplined plea for "justice" that mesmerized those watching, including his GOP colleagues on the dais. "No one has been arrested, no one has been prosecuted, no one has been

A fine young man with the courage to go after the leftwing Washington establishment in the most forthright way. Unfortunately for America it seems the corruption of the Washington cesspool is enough to make him return to Tennessee. I hope he can put some high ranking Democrats in jail before he leaves.

He is from South Carolina and he is not going home. Do you think the Benghazi panel is going to be finished by election time this fall ? Pay attention # 1.

I like what I see/hear from this man. However, he was right on top of the IRS debacle and I believe would have been a HUGE driving factor in that investigation. But the republicans don´t really want to tackle that nasty piece of business. To let an agency that powerful and corrupt operate freely will doom this country.

"He is cerebral, deeply studied and actually one of the most intelligent members I´ve served with. And I don´t say that lightly — this is not an empty compliment," said Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C

Amen, brother. One has only to listen to his occasional self-effacing comments to know that Gowdey is one shrewd prosecutor and politician. Personally, I think he´s brilliant and would put him in the White House tomorrow if the opportunity presents.

´If he can´t get to the bottom of [Benghazi] then this will be lost to history, because he has a great capacity to work through an investigation and come to a fair conclusion.´ ~ Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C.

That is what I believe, and one of the reasons I´m so impressed with Trey Gowdy. He (and other patriots) and his family are on my daily pray list. I don´t believe he is in Congress to promote and serve himself. He isn´t there to politicize important issues for the sake of, or the destruction of, a political party. He isn´t there to line his pockets, or to receive the glad hands and pats and scratches on the back that come to those who ´go along to get along´ in the status quo. He is one of those who, if he were to be transported back in time, would fit right in and be embraced by our founders and framers as one of them.

There are too few members like him, but the numbers are slowly growing, and, hopefully, the more the American people see of him the more they will understand and appreciate the difference between a patriot and a mere politician. Hopefully, then they too will want that kind of person representing them - not just for their sakes, but for the sake of the United States. (One can dream.

Rep. Cummings has said, "I don´t think we need to be making accusations before we even get in the room to hear the facts."

I hope Rep. Cummings heeds his own advice there. I also hope he can convince his fellow Democrats on the panel to actually stay in the room to hear the facts, and not walk out as they did when parents of two of our murdered Americans in Benghazi came to give testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

The MSM and the Dems are afraid for this to be televised, because they know Gowdy is genuinely and seriously on a search for the truth, and they don´t like how they look in juxtaposition with him.

Rancher Cliven Bundy can´t win:
USA Today, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/14/2014 5:39:20 AM     Post Reply
Government authorities were wise to back off in April when scofflaw Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy surrounded himself with armed supporters to avoid paying more than $1 million in grazing fees and penalties he had accumulated over two decades. As infuriating as it was that Bundy had repeatedly defied court orders and insisted he could graze his cattle wherever he pleased, he wasn´t worth a bloody confrontation. Three months later, though, Americans who obey the law and pay their bills might wonder how long Bundy and his gun-toting pals are going to get away with rejecting the rule of law.

What A Planned Parenthood Clinic Is Being
Sued For Is A Sickening Show Of Its Priorities
Independent Journal Review, by Kevin Boyd    Original Article

In Denver, Colorado, a local Planned Parenthood clinic is being sued by a mother who is alleging that they refused to report the suspected sexual abuse of her daughter by her stepfather, Timothy David Smith. Cary Smith is alleging that Planned Parenthood performed an abortion on her then 13-year-old daughter, R.Z., who was brought there by Timothy, who was also the unborn baby’s father, and that Planned Parenthood failed to report clear signs of possible sexual abuse and returned her home with her rapist. From LifeNews: On May 3, 2012, Timothy transported his thirteen-year-old step-daughter to Planned Parenthood in Denver, Colorado, for an

Obamacare’s Biggest Legal Threat

The legal positions of President Obama’s Justice Department have been slapped down unanimously a remarkable 13 times in the Supreme Court in the last two years. Over and over, even Obama’s own two appointees to the court — Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan — have held that the president has exceeded his authority and violated the separation of powers. This coming week, we could see the second-highest court in the land rule that the administration broke the law in enforcing a key provision of Obamacare, calling into question once again Obama’s fidelity to the Constitution — and further endangering his

Communist regimes have long specialized in committing enormous resources and legions of secret police stooges to the airbrushing of their own histories. Persons—both living and dead—become non-persons, past events become events that never happened, certain subjects become unmentionable in any public forums and sometimes even in private conversation. This brand of enforced amnesia becomes necessary with these regimes for the simple reason that they are far more terrified of their own populations than the threats from the outside world that they are constantly handwringing about. Forbidding their people to remember what has been re-written out of the history books is always

At a recent hearing, Rep. Paul Ryan neatly summarized the problem the IRS has when he responded to Commissioner John Koskinen this way: “I don’t believe it. That’s your problem: Nobody believes you.” Now two federal judges have basically said the same thing. Last Thursday, US District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, a Bill Clinton appointee, ordered the IRS to designate an official to explain — under oath — how it lost the Lois Lerner e-mails. The judge also asked a federal magistrate to look at other ways the court might find the IRS records. The order was followed the next day with

Much of the reporting on the fighting between Israeli forces and those of the Hamas terrorist network describes various parts and parties as “increasingly irrelevant.” It’s a term that is generally applied well, but not widely enough. It deserves greater breadth and judgment in its application. There are those who are highly relevant, increasingly irrelevant, and entirely irrelevant. (Snip)Now, all Obama and Kerry can do is watch. They have forfeited the Israelis’ trust and can do no more than whinge from the sidelines.

All Clintoned Out
PJ Media, by Victor Davis Hanson    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/14/2014 4:37:51 AM     Post Reply
Barack Obama did not blow apart Hillary Clinton’s huge lead during the 2008 Democratic primaries just because he was a landmark African-American candidate, new to the scene, and a skilled campaigner. Even Democrats were all Clintoned out. By such weariness, I don’t suggest that either of the Clintons is unpopular. Indeed, Americans apparently look fondly back on the high-growth 1990s as the continuation of the Reagan-Bush boom years, and a time when Democrats and Republicans finally fixed budget deficits. (Note well that when Obama went back to the Clinton-era tax rates for the more affluent, the deficit dipped, but certainly did

From the television airwaves to the U.S.-Mexico border, Texas Governor Rick Perry was everywhere this week, raising the question: Could Rick Perry make a comeback? Perry, whose unforgettable “oops” moment derailed his presidential campaign in 2012, was front and center in the week’s most closely watched issue — how President Obama is handling the influx of unaccompanied minors streaming across the U.S.-Mexico border. Donning his new hipster glasses, the Texas governor was everywhere, from flying aboard Marine One with the president to riding a patrol boat on the Rio Grande, managing to insert himself in a controversial debate that could lend him

Colorblind Harry Reid continues to divide

Harry Reid is the da Vinci of distraction. The moment any scandal, policy failure or political defeat crashes down on him — and there have been plenty the past few years — the Senate majority leader unleashes outrageous rhetoric that’s better suited for a sandbox than what once passed for the world’s greatest deliberative body. Worse, the Nevada Democrat has become especially fond of slinging race cards just to crank up the outrage. Last week, Sen. Reid was in rare form following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to overturn part of the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate. The 5-4 ruling declared

It took Mike and Chantell Sackett five years and a unanimous Supreme Court decision just to gain a fighting chance against a thuggish Environmental Protection Agency. Officials appeared at their Idaho property in 2007 threatening them with fines of $37,500 per day unless they immediately stopped construction on their dream home on land they owned near a lake. The agency cited the Clean Water Act after a neighbor complained, perhaps upset at the prospect of another home being built in the well-developed neighborhood. There are dozens of adjacent homes, multiple piers on the lake and even a well-trafficked marina close

Massachusetts now forced into border spat

It’s finally been confirmed what was suspected all along — Massachusetts is feeling the pain of the chaotic border crisis. Forget the denials. Secret flights of illegal immigrants have made their way to Bedford and Boston. I guess Attorney General Martha Coakley and state police are out of the loop because they said in recent weeks they had no knowledge of it. We’ve learned from immigration officials that four planes filled with detainees nabbed on the border landed at Hanscom Field and Logan International Airport since April as the U.S. scrambles to cap the immigration crisis. Three other flights chartered by President Obama’s immigration

Even before the shooting stops between Israel and Palestinian terrorists, the one guarantee is that Israel will get most of the blame. Already the demands from the United Nations that Israel show “restraint” are as predictable as Palestinian rockets. The tiny Jewish state is under fierce attack, with millions of its citizens spending long hours in bomb shelters. Yet any response beyond a mere t*t-for-tat is labeled disproportionate, putting Israel in the impossible position of being damned if it does and doomed if it doesn’t. Of course, it must strike back hard, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appears resolved that the Hamas

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend.

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country. A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their
