Brown: Is This The Scandal That Will Bring Obama Down?

By Floyd and Mary Beth Brown

It's even worse than we previously thought. A retired four-star admiral is now claiming that Barack Obama intentionally conspired with America's enemies to stage a bogus attack and the kidnapping of an American ambassador so he could "negotiate" the release of a "hostage" and bolster his mediocre approval ratings just prior to the election?

The Washington Examiner, quoting retired Four-Star Admiral James Lyons, writes: "the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi... was the result of a bungled abduction attempt.... the first stage of an international prisoner exchange... that would have ensured the release of Omar Abdel Rahman, the 'Blind Sheik'..."

But something went horribly wrong with Obama's "October Surprise." Although the Obama Administration intentionally gutted security at the consulate prior to the staged kidnapping, former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty disobeyed direct orders to stand down, saved American lives, single-handedly killed scores of attackers...and the attackers, believing that the Obama had betrayed them, tortured Ambassador Chris Stevens and dragged his body through the streets.

Some will say that Admiral Lyons' accusation is not a smoking gun. We agree, that's exactly why Congress must investigate Benghazi-gate.

Moreover, we firmly believe the problem with Admiral Lyons' assertion is that he is only scratching the surface the full and complete truth may be much, much worse.

Benghazi-gate is not about a bogus YouTube video series of lies. It's not about the Obama Administration's foreign policy ineptitude. We are dealing with something much more sinister... something potentially treasonous... and the following questions, posed in an article in The New American, go to the heart of the matter:

1. "What was the Obama administration's full role in helping violent Jihadists, self-styled al Qaeda terrorists, and Western-backed "revolutionaries" take over Libya in the first place?

2. Did that half-baked scheme to arm Jihadist leaders, who... had previously fought U.S. troops in Iraq, contribute to the attack, as countless experts and officials have suggested?

3. What was actually going on at the compound in Benghazi, which as the report states, was never a "consulate" despite establishment media claims?

4. Was Ambassador Stevens recruiting and arming Jihadists and terrorists to wage war on the Syrian regime after what Obama called the "success" in Libya, as a growing body of credible evidence suggests?

5. Why did the administration claim for so long that the attack was just a "protest" over a YouTube video gone awry, even when it knew definitively that was not the case?

6. Was the lack of security at the compound a political ploy to conceal the extent of the lawlessness and utter chaos left in the wake of Obama's unconstitutional "regime change" war on Libya, as even members of Congress have alleged?"

It's clear. Benghazi-Gate is only a small piece of a much larger operation, an attempt to conceal what The New American calls; "the Obama administration's full role in helping violent Jihadists and self-styled al Qaeda terrorists."

Prior to the election Barack Obama continually told us that "Osama bin-Laden is dead and GM is alive," but the sad truth is that Osama bin-Laden's organization is alive and well and the Obama Regime may be giving aid and comfort to this terrorist network.

And prior to the election, Fox News' Geraldo Rivera pontificated that Republicans shouldn't "politicize" Benghazi-gate. Swaggering onto the set of Fox and Friends Rivera bloviated: "I think we have to stop this politicizing" and Rivera issued the following veiled warning to Republicans: "Do we want to try and influence the election with a tragedy that happened in North Africa?"

Ironic, isn't it? Barack Obama played politics with the lives of Americans, like Rivera, the media covered Obama's rear and threatened to accuse anyone and everyone who mentioned it of "playing politics."

Weak-willed Republicans apparently took Rivera's threat to heart as Rivera also said that Republican Senators John Barrasso, James Inhofe and Bob Corker, who all sit on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee "all agree that the supercharged atmosphere around the story — prudence dictates that these hearings be postponed until" after the election.

Well, the election has come and gone. Congress now has no excuse. The American people needed the truth before the election, but now that Obama is back in the White House real conservatives must demand answers.

The American people deserve to have those questions answered and moreover the American people deserve justice.

    If any of this is true, Obozo and anyone else that participated in this treason have to be tried and if found guilty executed!

    I have read other similar accusations that a deal was in the works and went bad. That was why they watched the attack from the skies and did nothing. Hillary is in this up to her fat neck and knows this is plutonium to her and her aspirations to be the first female President of the USSA.

    There are far to many questions about this act and the stone walling has to be called and Congress has to investigate the Executive Branch as the AG will not do anything…I am sure he too was a willing participant!

      There were also reports that there was never an American Consulate in Benghazi and that the compound was a CIA operational base for moving weapons to the rebels in Syria. The question is if leaks are revealing stories like that, why isn’t Congress all over them like a dog on a bone? Could it be that Congress is as complicit in the covert actions and cover ups as is the President? By gut feeling tells me that there is adequate blame to go around in Washington D.C. and if the American public knew what was actually going on they would hang and quarter all of them.

      Admiral Lyons had better be looking over his shoulder, or he may just have a terminal accident or unexplained heart attack. It wouldn’t be the first time it happened to whistleblowers who crossed the powers that be.

      I do not know if this is true either but I would bet part of it is true at least. But with the LAME stream media protecting Obama’s butt by not reporting anything REAL or negative about him he has and will have a free pass. The people who have been mesmerized by him are still under his spell and they only watch the lame/main stream media as well. For the ones who voted for him? Well they are getting what they wished for…. They were warned!

      I do not believe for one minute that Obama is not involved in Bengazi-Gate. He is involved in one way or another. There is no way in hell that the president AND the Secretary of State did not know what was going on. So I am sure this goes so much deeper than we will EVER even know about. And for a 4 star General to come forward there has to be truth to it. Why would he risk it? If it is true that he really said it…..he would not be making it up. I pray that general will not be harmed for coming forward. I have heard of bad things happening in the past.

      WE NEED AND DESERVE ANSWERS. BUT THOSE ANSWERS NEED TO BE THE TRUTH. WE ARE NOT STUPID. I do not know about the rest of you but I am sick and tired of the games they are playing and all the lame answers they are giving us. He should NOT be sworn in until AFTER all this is over. PERIOD!

      I am very tired of the continual string of suggestions that keep popping up: “will this bring Obama down”, “impeach Obama”, “need to hold Obama accountable” . . .

      If there is so much common knowledge as to his guilt—and bear in mind the information we get from these articles is merely fringe information—we’re not even close to the real inside scoop—then let’s see something done about it. I’m starting to think headlines such as these are manufactured just to instill false hope that something will really be done about him.

      Make it happen or shut up about it.

    Congress has an obligation to the American people to find out ALL of the details of the Benghazi tragedy and publish their findings to the public. This whole episode smells and this article is not the first time I have heard this may have been an attempt to set up a prisoner exchange between our ambassador and a terrorist we have in prison. I have to admit that the behavior of the Obama administration over the last four years including running the dirtiest political campaign in modern history is embarrassing and saddening.

When will the American public wake up, smell the java and fire all those guys, Republicans and Democrats alike? So sorry, silly me, 52% of America just voted for more of the same. So here we sit, neck in the block, waiting for the guillotine to fall. Will it be in the next year, two or four? Time will tell, but you can take it to the bank that those in power have a Plan?

      I do not know how much, if any, of this is true. But I would not be surprised if it all is. But even if it were all to be proven it wouldn’t matter. Obama is untouchable. For two basic reasons.

      1) Enough of the people are so mezmorized by him that nothing – and I do mean NOTHING – he does will be held against him. And, with a complacent media on his side, it can, and will, all be justified.

      2) The Republicans have done such a horrible job, bungling every investigation into WH actions, so far that any charges brought out of a Benghazi inquiry will be excused away as nothing more than “Obama bashing”.

      This is the next progression in a line that was started, in the late 90′s, with Bill Clinton’s perjury. Democrat presidents can do NO wrong. And any attempt to expose their wrong doing is only sour grapes on the part of Republicans.

      Whereas if a Republican president so much as forgets to cover his mouth when he coughs the call will go out, by the Lame Stream Media, for his head. And the sheeple will blindly follow along.

      I don’t think your wrong in your assessment Lardo; however, I do believe there is a whole other layer to this that is inescapable. The fact that the majority of the American populace is of one mind when it comes to Benghazi Libya…we want to know what happened, why it happened, and who is to blame for it happening.

      Even the severest of Obama supporters will run from him if they think their precious seats are in jeopardy. Once Obama’s coattails become thin…his supporters will run thin as well.Never underestimate the will of the American people, regardless which side of the aisle them may hail from. We most certainly don’t let any president off the hook when something like this pops up. Olie North took one for the team…and Reagan (god rest his soul) should have stood and taken the heat right along with him. Clinton? Heck, that was just sex..and the American people didn’t care about him getting some on the side…not really. Lying? We all know anyone who is a politician lies…so again, no biggie on that score either.

      This story…so gross in it’s every detail, slowly eking out over months now, has the American mind set enmasse looking for answers to very basic questions. Once the assumption of guilty begins sticking to Obama like flies on poo…there will be no where he can hide, blame or run too. Even Hilary will throw his bum under her own well oiled running bus to save her own.

      This is a very plausible situation…and it’s gonna cause some serious damage before it’s done. The outcome however, will be well worth the hell it will create.

      We need more of Washington to spill the beans… clear their souls of this black mark..and barf up the information. The more enmasse that come forward…takes down the most damaging politicians we’ve had since Woodrow Wilson!

      I would hope that you’re right, mystic. But I truly fear you may not be. See the thing is, Obama is “The Messiah” to the leftist media. And they will do anything to protect him. (Some, I believe, would even take the sword for him.) And, sad & unfotunate as it is, more and more people seems to take their marching orders from the Lame Stream Media.

      So, between the commited leftists, the wish/washy middle, and inept leadership of the opposing party, I don’t think the people will ever get to the point where they will believe Obama has acted treasonously. The media will portray it as a witch-hunt, by the ‘EVIL” Republicans. And the people will drink it up.

      I may be wrong (and I hope I am), but that how I see it going down.

      I read ya loud and clear Lardo. I do have one silver lining in this very black cloud of reality we are currently living in.

      There was a state, early December if memory serves,(I’d have to look it up for ya) that showed the end commentary on the campaign. More than 57% of the nation said in a Pew Poll that they voted for Obama not because they believe in him or liked him or even wanted him as their President…but because they were terrified (actual word used was afraid I believe) of having another Republican in that position and knew (actually stated they knew) that Romney would take us back to the 1950′s socially.

      Now, don’t look at the stupid rationalization used. That 57% were all democrats btw…look at the number! That many on “his” supposed side…that many dems not happy with ‘him’ but more terrified of the other side, gives us a wide crack in which to insert a crowbar and crack this thing open. That’s where I have hope.

      Add to that number our own growing numbers of Libertarian, Fiscal Conservatives and Moderates, About 51% of the nations populace that usually votes conservative/republican are already aware of the damage this guy is doing.

      Put those two groups together and you’ve got one heck of a populace majority that is going to exert enough pressure on their own congressmen/congresswomen and reps to make um squirm in their very unsteady seats.

      By my calculation (which may be flawed..I’m no pollster) 2/3 of the country is ripe for this type of incident to change the very face of what Obama and company are trying to do. With Dems screaming at the payroll tax holiday being over…most of us reading to do our taxes…I don’t think Obama is sitting as solidly as he thinks he is. I also believe this is why we are seeing a constant stream of ‘my way or the highway’ type legislation/executive orders flowing out of DC right now…has to do what he can to save his sorry bum when the last brick falls.

      Have hope…we are not the only one’s watching and paying attention. Our people where led to the slaughter for the idealizations of a madman bent on destruction of beloved nation. Every American..even the bent on loonies…will rise up and begin to rail as the betrayal becomes unavoidable.

      …and what will be that last brick? Clinton herself. Yup, I believe the death knoll for Obama will be those slippery Clintons. She’s not gonna take any blame or any fall for this fiasco…but sure as heck will make sure Obama does.

      It’s coming…very real and very plausible. Pray…pray for God to Bless those with strength to come forward and stand in the heat just long enough to get this guy outta the POTUS seat!

    I think you’re missing a couple of questions.

    First, specifically from whom did the “stand-down” order come? Give me a name.

    Second, this attack took place over a period of several hours, during which the former SEALs requests for support, which was immediately available, were denied. The denial for support came from the White House. So, specifically from whom within the White House did the denial for support come? Again: give me a name.

    Moreover, Ron Reagan might not’ve been the one to coin the directive, “follow the money,” but he made it famous. Ambassador Stevens was involved with arms dealers who were selling arms to various parties involved. What role did they play?

    Finally, the former SEALs were on missions to find out exactly who was getting arms being sold. For example, since the Libyan “revolution,” Islamic terrorists in Mali have been getting arms and support through Libya (and have caused all kinds of problems in Mali, and have now taken the northern half of that country, such as toturing “adulterers” to death). How have arms dealers–perhaps in collusion with the US government, perhaps not–been either directly or indirectly supplying arms to the Mali terrorists?

    I think the bottom line is that this event stinks really, really bad. The US State Department was involved in some way: either directly running the event or standing by and allowing others to do so, and making sure the US military wouldn’t intervene. Given the amount that Obama has had to say about the events in Libya over the past 18 months or so, I’d say he’s in it up to his elbows. He might even have been specifically the one who gave the orders to the former SEALs to stand down, and specifically the one who gave the order to withhold support when it was requested.

    Either way, he knew. But we’re going to be told, once again, the he didn’t: that this man, whom we’re supposed to call “Commander in Chief,” didn’t know about Banghazi, just like he didn’t know about Fast and Furious, or Solyndra.

    He’s a really smart guy: brilliant. Yeah, right: we’re supposed to believe that, but we’re also supposed to believe that he doesn’t seem to have much of a clue about what’s going on in his own administration.

    When it comes to Benghazi and Fast and Furious, Barack Obama is either inept to the point of stupidity, or he’s guilty of very serious felony crimes.

    He’s probably not the first president who’s fallen into this catagory, and when Presidents of the United States fall into this catagory, they don’t get accused of murder, brought to trial, convicted and sentenced to prison. The media spin it, and spin it, and spin it, and the voters believe, and the whole thing goes away . . . for a generation or so. Then somebody writes a book and spills the beans.

    Obama, like his associate Bill Ayers, will be “guilty as sin and free as a bird.” But history will not be kind to him. He’s a pretty-boy US President with blood on his hands. Not the only one, for sure: but that doesn’t make it all right.

    None the less, this is the kind of scandal that, if the media pursue it, and start trying to specifically place responsibility–i.e. name names–will captivate and polarize the entire country until either the media give up and let it go away, or until some pit-bull investigative reporters finally find enough evidence (because you can bet nobody in government will do it) to nail somebody, a la Woodward and Bernstein during the Watergate scandal, at the direction of Washington Post publisher Katherine Graham.

Does anybody else see another reason why there is a storm of activity on the part of this Administration to force through the strictest form of gun control ever in this nation, in direct violation of the 2nd Amendment?

      Pat, I don’t mean to be disagreeable, BUT Bill Clinton wasn’t just immoral. He LIED under oath and that is perjury and is an impeachable offense. Some try to excuse it because he “just lied about sex”, but it makes no difference what he lied about. It’s an issue of integrity and honesty with the people who placed their trust in him to lead the nation.

      We don’t need to be making excuses and looking the other way when our elected officials violate a law. That is the reason Obama should have been impeached 3 years ago. He has violated several federal laws, but the corrupt Democrat party circles the wagons and protects their own.

      That is the thing I find so hypocritical about their remarks about dealing with straw purchasers in fighting gun violence. Our own federal government not only used straw purchasers to buy the weapons from FFL dealers, but the government also caused law-abiding gun dealers to violate federal firearms laws by selling to them. Now Obama is trying to force additional reporting requirements on those dealers and blaming them when he should be the one blamed and prosecuted.

      These types of crimes are happening because we as a nation have been lenient and excused the corruption of our politicians.

      Yea. It was “only sex”. Which makes Bill’s perjury even more insidious. Had he lied to protect some vital national security interest, one could argue that that might be excusable. But he lied only to save his own sorry butt… over a “trivial” sex scandle.

      So… it’s ok to lie under oath, and deny justice to someone else, if the underlying (no pun intended) issue is trivial? Really? REALLY?

      Lardo, if you will notice, both my post and your post have drawn out the low ratings. People will just not accept the truth that we are allowing corruption to exist in our government. Clinton is still regarded as a great president when he should be in jail for multiple rapes.

      Have you ever seen a list of the people who are now dead because they were once associated in some way with the Clintons and turned on them? When you get the time, take a look at the Clinton Chronicles http://youtu.be/mtNoLxvkKGY

      We are mostly spectating, of coarse, but I believe the administration, in their efforts to remove resistance, ie. gun control, knows very well we WILL find out the truth and is trying to secure itself before this comes to a head. Much like a rat being cornered will bite if it is being threatened with capture. I truly believe Oblamer will use the army he has put together and is training in Operation Desensitize, to fend off a dethroning and facilitate a takeover. Has he ever given us even a hint of credit to his benefit?

    If there is one thing we learned from the Clinton presidency, it is that the President cannot hide from civilian courts. I doubt that Congress will be able to get to the bottom of what happened, and we know the media won’t investigate anything done under a Democratic administration.

    So, perhaps the one way we may find out the truth is if a family member of one of the Americans killed sues Obama. I’d love to hear from anyone with a legal background whether there is a charge that would stick in a civil lawsuit.

    In the Paula Jones case, all that happened was Clinton settled for a large sum of money and had his law licence revoked for 5 years. But the whole investigation led to the Lewinsky affair and the Starr report. Even if enough evidence came out to lead to impeachment, you need 67 votes in the Senate. The Democrats will circle the wagons and all vote to acquit, regardless of evidence. However, at least the public will see the truth.

      I agree with what you say.

      However, the House special investigator for the Clinton impeachment committee–federal prosecutor and life-long democrat Dave Shippers, in Chicago–found over 22 charges with which to hit Clinton. The then-republican-controlled senate dismissed all but two or three of them.

      Maybe they just didn’t want Al Gore to be president. Hoo-boy! Al Gore! Now THAT’S a dirty story!

      The charges were serious and could have resulted in Clinton’s removal from office, if not jail time. As well, Shippers thought enough evidence was available to go after Clinton for rape charges (stemming from accusations from two different women in Arkansas). He also thought enough evidence was available to go after both Clinton and Gore for accepting campaign contributions, ultimately from Chinese intelligence.

      The republican-controlled house and senate reigned in Shippers. It really angered him, and he wrote a book about it entitled “Sell Out.”

      The lesson is that the US government doesn’t really want scandals that remove from office, and perhaps even imprison, US presidents. The Watergate event was the anomally. Katherine Graham supposedly had some kind of personal vendetta against Nixon, so she personally sent Woodward and Bernstein to get him. The Watergate scandal was merely the tool they used to do the job.

      The did get him, but largely without government help, unless they forced it out of people, most of whom subsequently saw their careers destroyed. (That’s the side of “All the President’s Men” nobody likes to mention: a lot of innocent people got hurt by Woodward’s and Bernstein’s “heroics.”) Sitting politicians–even those in opposition parties–don’t like this sort of stuff. They didn’t cooperate much in the hunt for Nixon, and they plainly backed down from prosecuting Clinton.

      I think politicians in general exploit the media to some extent, to win, or to lose, or perhaps just to make contributions to the steady stream of drama the media supply, which has commerical and other values. But I think most politicians don’t like genuine scandals. I think they subscribe to the belief that when one politician is made to look dirty, it makes all politicians look bad; it adds an element of insecurity to the job. So, to protect themselves, they protect each other. They make deals, surely, and they profit from each other’s misfortune. But in the end, they’re going to protect each other to preserve at least some measure of public confidence in the mirage of their leadership.

      NY, You are partially correct. The House has the sole authority of impeachment. After the House votes to impeach the president, it is the job of the Senate to determine his punishment. Yes, it would take 67 votes and the Democrats would probably not throw him out of office as punishment, but he would still be impeached and his worshipers would understand that he is guilty of crimes against this nation. Once he was impeached by the House, then the Senate would be in the spotlight and they would find it necessary to impose SOME type of punishment.

      Thanks lakeworthcane and bna42 for the information and clarification.

      I don’t expect Congress to get anywhere with this investigation, and even if they did, impeachment seems a long shot. I certainly don’t expect Obama to be thrown out of office. I’m not sure I’d even want that, as it would put Biden in charge.

      I do want to know the truth, however. And once the truth is out, it will tarnish the reputations of everyone involved.

    Congress must continue to ask, What did the president do and say during the 7 hour attack? Who ordered the stand down? Who ordered the military security detail to be pulled? I am glad that we finally got away from who changed the intel report, though we still need that info. But everything still keeps pointing to a hugh cover up.

      You won’t see anything about Bengazi in the news. The MSM is doing everything it can to protect Obama with all the strength it can muster. By protecting Obama the MSM is in the process of hanging itself. When Obama finally gets whats coming to him the media will have shown itself to be totally biased and incompetent to do its job. It will then be marginalized and held with disdain by the people. From that point on the media will no longer be the driving force that the Democratic party needs. Both will fade into oblivion. Many in the media realize this but they are too far along in the process to want to do anything about it. If only one of the media outlets begins to do it proper job and report and investigate the truth we will see a turn around in the public opinion about what’s wrong with America. But until that happens the Democrats will continue to rule.

    Woods and Doherty were sacrificed by Obama, who personally blocked any immediate rescue efforts – the command to stand down had to come from the highest level, the Commander-in-Chief.

    The tight-knit SEAL community is now aware that not only were there 2 drones overhead, but also a gunship, which was ordered not to engage. I wonder how it feels to know that if things go south in an op, the CIC will let you die if it is politcally expedient.

    And where are the 20 to 30 other individuals saved by Woods and Doherty? They surely have information about that night. Why haven’t they been questioned by Congress? Are they being hidden from the press, or forbidden to speak?

    This is a plausible series of events, but will be difficult to prove. Obama was said to have watched the embassy attack as it was happening from the drone situated above and transmitted to the White House in real time….yet Obama and Clinton did nothing. When it was determined that the ambassador was killed they had to fudge the reason via the film. This was before the election and if ambassador was simply taken hostage Obama would have garnered his release by trading for the Blind Sheik and would have had many more voters.

    This is no surprise to me. I have suspected all along that BO is not what he wants us to think he is. He is a marxist-commie-atheist and is bent on the destruction of our country–and, he is doing a smashing job of it. When he was re-elected, my heart sank for I knew it would be the beginning of the end. He is evil. However, I highly doubt he will ever be made to answer for his crimes. We are just too far down the hole for that now. Sorry for the negativity, but I just have lost almost all hope for our country.

    On Dec 13 or about,the Russian newspaper “Pravda” reported that a plane carrying Hillary C crash landed at an Iranian airport just over the border from Iraq. She was being escorted to “WHERE” by a navy seal who was killed in the crash, it was a small aircraft.Hillary was unconcious and bleeding profusely said the report.She was airlifted to a near by hospital.Ironicly,Ahmahjinadad, Pres of Iran landed at that same airport safely an hour prior to Hillary.HOW come we never were told about this and it took a RUSSIAN media to report it.What was she doing in Iran.??? I,ll bet the Russians know what was up and perhaps all was connected to Benghazi. Hence the flu,falling,blood clot.She was out a month.Know anyone in Russia who is a friend. ???They know more than we do.

Israel’s Intelligence had said something about it as well. Has anyone tried Google translate? Its not perfect but I use it a lot. You can usually break it down and learn what you need to from an article. I hope it helps if you have not already tried it.

    From the moment we learned that Stevens died, not from violence, but from smoke inhalation it was obvious that that Obama had been setting up Benghazi as an “October Surprise” and that it had backfired. It was probably also intended to set Stevens up as a media hero/survivor to be rewarded with Hilary’s job. Obama owed it to Stevens for keeping quiet about Obama and Emanuel’s membership at the same Chicago homosexual mens club attended by Stevens.
    Suspicions were supported by Obama’s persistent lies about the video made more obvious when the FBI was prevented from entering the site until ‘after’ CNN sanitized it by destroying any incriminating evidence including all but seven pages of Steven’s journal.
    Then the email evidence surfaced and Obama was was criminally negligent if he was not watching the invasion on film from the unmanned drone over the site and if he was watching and either ordered our people to stand down and refused to dispatch help, he was an accessory to the murder of four American citizens.
    Obama further incriminated himself by publicizing the Petraus affair and the Hilary headache hoax. He is further incriminating himself and Hilary by scheduling her testimony on Jan 22, one day after he is sworn in on Jan 21. All that comes on top of the recent revelation by the Hawaii official that his signature on Obama’s recent online Birth Certificate was forged and the scheduling of an Obama Birth Certificate hearing by the U.S. Supreme Court. Of course the case is being heard by John Roberts who proved his willingness to lie, cheat and and steal for Obama when he faked the screw up of the 2009 swearing in so Obama could swear in privately without a Bible.
    All of that information is available, but is being covered up by our Saudi/Soros/Mafia owned and controlled mainstream media. The conspirators should all be tried, convicted, imprisoned, deported or executed for the crimes of treason, murder and criminal conspiracy.
    Benghazigate is making Watergate look like a kiddie game. We must continue to pray for our country.

I pray that God will bring forth ”the truth” about this traitor. Short of that, I am afraid our country is almost too late to be saved. We are dealing with pure EVIL! And I don’t say that lightly…the more we can find out and ‘keep’ it in the public light, the better our chances are of saving our precious Country! We are in the fight for our very lives. I pray God will give each one of us the strength and wisdom to gain the knowledge that we need to expose this ‘traitor’ to our country. And that he will cover us with his protection in doing so! So lets get to work Patriots! God Bless us all!
