BENGHAZI: PROTECTING THE THRONE

May 9, 2013

As a result of the May 8th House of Representatives Committee hearing on the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya three chilling conclusions can be drawn. First, the four Americans who were killed were abandoned by the very government they so bravely served. Days prior to the attack Ambassador Chris Stevens and others on his staff pointed out to the State Department that the security situation in Libya was deteriorating. There had already been a car bomb attack on the Consulate in Benghazi and an attempt had been made on the life of the British ambassador. Therefore, Ambassador Stevens wanted an increase in security personnel.

          Yet, despite these reports and the fact that the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in 2001 was rapidly approaching these requests were denied and orders were issued actually reducing the number of security personnel already assigned to the Ambassador. Then when the attacks began on September 11th, there is clear evidence that there were American military assets in the area, including a four man special ops team in Tripoli, that could have been used to break up the assault and save American lives. Instead of immediately deploying these assets, someone in the Obama administration ordered a stand down and no help was provided to the Ambassador and his embattled staff at the Consulate.

          The second conclusion that can be clearly drawn is that the U.S. government knew from the beginning of the assault that this was a coordinated terrorist attack yet tried to hide this fact from the public for days. Instead of acknowledging that we had been struck by Jihadists once again on 9/11 administration officials, including the President and Secretary of State, claimed it was a spontaneous demonstration resulting from an obscure You Tube video critical of the prophet Mohammed that the demonstration somehow evolved into bloodshed. This was claimed despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

          There are still more questions than answers and there will be more hearings, but the final inescapable conclusion to be drawn from this initial hearing is that the Administration, the vast majority of the Democrats in Congress, and most of the mainstream media don’t want the American people to know the truth. Their only interest is in protecting King Obama and his throne, and protecting his possible successor, Hilary Clinton. Instead of asking pertinent questions the Democrats on the committee spent most of their time attacking the Republicans and the valiant whistleblowers.

          Indeed, these elected representatives of “we the people” drew their swords and locked their shields together in order to form a bulwark between the truth and the American people. This is a direct violation of their oath of office where they swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. The founding fathers carefully crafted the Constitution to set up a limited Federal government with three separate, but equal branches that would provide checks and balances to keep one branch from becoming too powerful and plunging our nation into tyranny. By refusing to rein in the excesses of the Executive Branch of government these so called “lawmakers” are failing to do what they are tasked to do by the Constitution. This is not only an impeachable offense, but is subject to criminal penalties under the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 7311 and 18 U.S.C. 1918.

           As for the members of the national news media, they take no such oath but I contend that they are still bound by the duties imposed on them by the Constitution. The First Amendment provides for freedom of the press and the founding fathers placed it in the Constitution for a specific reason. They wanted a free press to be a watch dog over the Federal government to keep it from becoming tyrannical, lying to the American people, and taking away our God given freedoms. By refusing to dig for the truth about Benghazi and in fact assisting the Administration in the cover up much of the mainstream media has become nothing more than a propaganda forum for the President and his allies. They are no longer the standard bearers for a free press, but the disciples of tyranny.

          It is time for us to take back our country and hold the enemies of our Constitution accountable for their actions.

Yesterday spoke volumes for the state of our country.
While the Benghazi hearings were taking place, (basically only on Fox News) every other media outlet was glued to the "Jodi Arias trial" and the verdict. Hundreds of people were surrounding the courthouse to await the verdict. They were more concerned over the trial of one woman than demanding answers for the loss of four American citizens. I guarantee if you questioned one of them regarding the Benghazi hearing, they would have replied "what?"
My question to you is, what can we do? How can we come together and demand media coverage? How can we support the "whistleblowers"? I vote, I email, I write letters, only to have them fall on deaf ears. We are angry and want answers. Where can American citizens begin to help make a change? If we all come together, we can move mountains. How do we start?
What upsets me more than anything is seeing Hillary Clinton asking, "what difference does it make" regarding whether it was a video or gang that started this. It makes a BIG difference. Our government has lied to the American people and feel we don't deserve the truth. The families of these four men deserve the truth!!!! How do we begin to take back our country?

First, we found out that we could watch the hearings on-line at
cspan3.org, as they were being held. If you don't have that option, the hearings were shown later on CSpan 2 at 7 PM Central Time.
I, too, was outraged when I saw and heard what Hilary Clinton say what she did, about "what difference does it make." It makes a HUGE difference to the families of those murdered Americans. It is very telling that Greg Hill was demoted because he was going to give testimony, in spite of serving this nation with a stellar record. Naturally the mainstream media areen't going to cover this as the darkness hates the light, which is being shown on this corrupt government. I cannot believe how stupid and/or uninformed the majority of the population of this once great country are. We need more Representatives like Trey Gowdy, who are like bull dogs and won't let go until they get answers.

It is so sad that the media won't cover the truth anymore (unless it's some scandal regarding a prominent conservative or republican). By now, however, even if the mainstream media started to cover such stories, would anyone even care? Would they listen? I don't know. It seems that those of us who care are already listening and searching for the truth. We find it on The Blaze and on Fox, albeit to a lesser extant, and we find it in blogs such as Michael Connelly's. I make mention of these subjects when I am going about my daily business and it seems that it's hard to get a conversation started. Either no one has heard the news, or when I inform them, they just say, "Oh." I guess I hope that when I mention such subjects regarding how our gov't is so corrupt and the media turns a blind eye, that it plants a seed in their minds to search for the truth.
