Collusion has become the Democrats’ Benghazi
Washington Post, by Ed Rogers

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 1/7/2018 11:23:05 AM

Collusion has become the Democrats’ Benghazi. Just as Hillary Clinton and her aides told some lies but weren’t ultimately to blame in the Benghazi tragedy, President Trump and his campaign did not collude with the Russians. Too bad for the Democrats that they can’t learn from how Republicans mishandled and overplayed the Benghazi affair. In the same way Benghazi became an obsession for many in the GOP, the idea of collusion between the Trump campaign and Vladimir Putin is now baked into the Democratic psyche. No matter what special counsel Robert S. Mueller III finds, Democrats and their allies in

Over the holidays I happened to see one of the greatest movies ever made...The Three Amigos. So it´s clear to me that collusion has become the Democrats´ El Guapo. Which is a real problem for them because every single Democrat appears to be an El Guapo.

Conflating the very real Benghazi terror attack and the imaginary Russian collusion is like comparing The Bay of Pigs to Alice in Wonderland. Real people really died in Benghazi due to HRC’s malfeasance. Russiagate is a figment of the dim’s (and msm’s) imagination designed to explain why HRC lost something that was hers, Hers, HERS!

I am so sick of the this idea that Democrats keep peddling that the Benghazi outrage was "overblown" and that there is some moral equivalence between it and the Democrats made up "collusion" fantasy.

Regarding the tragedy of Benghazi,(an actual real life event)it was evident to anybody with a brain that, at minimum, there were huge errors in judgement made by those in charge. Not to mention telling blatant, obvious lies afterward and then imposing gag orders on all Benghazi personnel.

Can you imagine the exact same scenario today where, knowing an embassy attack was in progress, that Rex Tillerson goes home to bed and the President is AWOL?

No one pounded Obama on his absence. What was so important that he could not be called away? Remember that 3AM phone call ad?

Where were all the "journalists" then?

Benghazi was a tragedy that didn´t have to happen. The PIAPS and her minions denied the necessary extra security necessary. Ignored expert advice and then, when the compound was under fire she and her absent boss, Smidgen, refused to allow help -- either from the sky or from a rescue force that was on its way.
There is no equivalence, not in any sense. People should be jailed for malfeasance and/or plain old treason.

I watched 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, a hard movie to watch. The last scene speaks volumes. The survivors are at the airport waiting to leave Benghazi with a Lbyan plane in the background and one of the CIA guys says, and still no Americans have come to our rescue.

I have yet to hear one reporter ask Hillary where she was the night of the Benghazi massacre. They never asked Obama where he was that night either. He left the next day to go to CA to play golf and go to a fundraiser. What were they doing while our Ambassador was being murdered. All we hear about it is the stupid video and other lies . I still want to know.

More WaPo garbage. Four Americans died in Benghazi. Their bosses, up to and including pResident Obama did NOTHING to help them, then lied their tails off about the whole matter. None of those responsible have ever told the truth about it, much less taken responsibility and accepted the consequences for it.
You think you (we) can possibly "overplay" that?

I agree with every poster above. Benghazi really happened, and our military commanders (who were chomping at the bit to make the 40-minute flight from Sicily with Special Forces guys) were repeatedly told to stand down. "Collusion" between the Russians and the Trump campaign never happened, and even if it had, collusion isn´t a crime.

It´s time for a RICO investigation into that vast criminal enterprise known as the Democratic Party.

Benghazi was caused by secret illegal arms trading, aggravated by criminal neglect of security, amplified by a refusal to assist those under fire and then lied about in a craven attempt to cover the fiasco for political purposes in an election year.

Four separate crimes....all premeditated and all committed under cover of authority.

....and the Leftist Bastids want to tell you it was a GOP over-reach and empty investigation.

Unspeakably and relentlessly evil.

Well WaPo, you got one thing right. The Republicans mishandled the Benghazi murders by not making sure the Butcher and her cabal were ultimately prosecuted and sent to jail.

Some women don´t want reproductive

Many women are disgusted with the Republican Party, for not-so-mysterious reasons. That has left many liberals hoping for landslide victories in 2018 and beyond. They should moderate their expectations. As much as Republicans´ behavior offends many women, there will always be some women who find the Democrats more unpalatable still. And abortion is the biggest reason why. Some women simply won´t consider supporting a party that trumpets its commitment to "abortion rights." I should know. I´m one of them. Pro-life women are not especially rare. About 38 percent of American women believe that abortion should be illegal in most or all cases.

What is the correct response to mass shootings? Is it legislation or leadership? At the national level, it should be the kind of consistent, persistent leadership that comes from a clear vision and the right words. President Donald Trump displayed an important flash of leadership on Thursday in his address to the nation after the school massacre in Florida. His words were thoughtful, comforting and even inspiring. But playing comforter in chief for the length of a news cycle won´t be enough. It is the responsibility of Trump, and of other leaders, to try and make a lasting impact on the

While the media is filled with stories and theories about Trump’s interactions — or lack thereof — with Russia, not enough attention is being paid to revelations about pro-Hillary Clinton operatives’ use of opposition research that ostensibly came from Russia. With the Democrats unable to govern and lacking much of an affirmative agenda, they want Russia to be the story. Yet with each passing day, more seems to be revealed that not only undercuts the absolute faith Democrats have in the Trump-Russia collusion narrative but also demonstrates just how much they did and how far they were willing to go

Obamacare’s Own Private Idaho

While the nation remains transfixed by the deep state skullduggery employed to install Hillary Clinton in the White House, a quiet revolution has been gathering steam in flyover country. The latest skirmish was fought on February 7, when the Idaho House Health and Welfare Committee voted to send Governor Butch Otter’s less restrictive alteration to Obamacare to the full Idaho House of Representatives. The opening salvo took the form of a January executive order from Otter requiring the state’s Department of Insurance to examine all options for making health coverage affordable for Idahoans, whether or not they complied with Obamacare:

Will the FISA memo turn
into Obama´s Watergate?
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Sebastion Gorka    Original Article
Posted By: garnet- 2/10/2018 9:03:55     Post Reply
Forty-six years ago, a group of hamfisted burglars bungled the task of bugging the Democratic National Committee’s offices in the Watergate building in Washington D.C. Two years later, Richard Nixon resigned as president a result of the failed cover-up that ensued. Although Barack Obama is no longer president, the abuses that occurred within the FBI and Justice Department under his watch already have the potential to eclipse the Watergate scandal in their historic significance and damage done to American government. A Beltway adage has it that “it’s always the cover-up that’ll get you, not the original transgression.”

Despite what we keep reading in the “news” media about the failure of the GOP to repeal Obamacare, congressional Republicans and President Trump are steadily dismembering the justly reviled healthcare law, limb by pernicious limb. The latest appendage to be lopped off was among its most dangerous — the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). IPAB was designed by the law’s authors as a rationing board composed of unelected bureaucrats with the power to “recommend” reductions in Medicare payments to doctors and hospitals. This would have reduced access to care for the elderly. That dangerous Obamacare provision

Stage a grand military parade?

The Pentagon has confirmed that it is in the preliminary stages of planning a military parade down Pennsylvania Avenue — one of President Trump’s fondest desires. Trump was, understandably, impressed in a visit to France last July by the pageantry of the Bastille Day parade. The parade dates back to the 1880s. Nothing the United States comes up with will match its resonance or its beloved, unifying nature. Trump’s motivation for ordering up a parade anyway is pretty obvious. He likes big, brassy displays, and he gets a kick out of being the commander in chief of the most impressive military on

After years of non-stop virtue signaling as the party of "truth, justice and equality," the Democrats are slowly, inexorably being revealed to be the reverse. They are being hoisted on the petard of their own moral narcissism. It has made them blind. So convinced of their own righteousness were they that it allowed them to participate in, even instigate, the subversion of our justice system to the extent of lying to and deceiving a FISA court in the name of what they assumed was "good." They did this in concert with people who claimed to be Republicans or "independents" working for

Hospitals Get Reprieve From
Obamacare Pay Cuts
American Spectator, by David Catron    Original Article

The spending deal reached today in the Senate, like the budget bill that passed yesterday in the House, includes a two-year delay in payment cuts that were about to hit “disproportionate share” (DSH) hospitals. The cuts would have been imposed by Obamacare pursuant to the Faustian bargain the hospital industry made with the Democrats in 2010. The American Hospital Association (AHA) and various other industry groups were suckered into this agreement after being promised that a stampede of newly insured patients were going to come pouring out of the Obamacare exchanges and uncompensated care would drop dramatically.

Republicans See Trump as Top

While conventional wisdom holds that Donald Trump will be a drag on Republican chances of maintaining control of the House, those vying to expand the party’s majority in the Senate are embracing the president as a unique asset in the upcoming campaigns. Unlike the House map, the Republicans´ path to success in the upper chamber runs through 10 states Trump won in 2016 -- five of them by double-digit margins. But beyond those favorable fundamentals, the GOP is looking to the president to lead something of a mass-marketing campaign against well-known Democratic incumbents. Party operatives see the president´s penchant for coining catchy

Taking back the House will be harder

Democrats are feeling cheery at the prospect that this fall will bring an end to the power outage they suffered in 2016 and the near-irrelevance they have endured since. Conditions look particularly good for taking back the House. Off-year elections in a president’s first term nearly always cost his party some seats, and President Trump’s historically low approval ratings are an especially heavy weight for Republicans. The fact that so many GOP incumbents are in a rush to retire is no mere coincidence. Democrats also have enthusiasm on their side, something that hasn’t been the case in a nonpresidential year since 2006.

Although talk of a “blue wave” has been tempered recently by a tightening of the generic congressional ballot, Democrats remain giddy at their prospects of taking back control of one or both chambers of Congress in this fall’s midterm elections. They should be careful what they wish for. To capture the House of Representatives, Democrats need to pick up 24 districts now held by Republicans. Strong recruitment and campaign fundraising have put enough seats across the country in play for Democrats to bring winning the lower chamber within reach. In the Senate, they only need a net gain of two seats,

Mr. Mueller wants access to the president as part of an inquiry into suspected obstruction of justice in the firing of the special counsel’s longtime friend, FBI Director James B. Comey, in May. The president’s legal team has resisted but not given a firm no. Here are the arguments against an interview. • The White House has given Mr. Mueller unprecedented access to White House documents and people. • There is no stated crime. •

He preened with guns and knives on social media, bragged about shooting rats with his BB gun and got kicked out of school — in part because he had brought bullets in his backpack, according to one classmate. He was later expelled for still-undisclosed disciplinary reasons. The portrait of Nikolas Cruz, suspected of fatally shooting 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and wounding 15 others at his former school, is a troubled teen with few friends and an obsessive interest in weapons.

Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz -- who mowed down Parkland, Florida, high school students and teachers, killing 17 and wounding many others -- had been thrown out of the same school for threatening his classmates. He had been bragging to them about having a personal armory and implying he would use it, justifiably frightening them. Subsequently he posted a photo of that armory, including assault weaponry, on Instagram as well as a photo of a target riddled with bullet holes with the recommendation to try it as "group therapy."
