Benghazi or Bust

Time to start doing what is right..

Well, like many of us thought from the beginning of the Benghazi ordeal, AFTER this election is over, sooner or later, it WILL come back and bite SOMEONE in the “behind”. It is becoming clearer and clearer that there IS indeed a cover up going on….and it WAS, as many of knew from the get-go, a TERRORIST ATTACK!

We have witnessed once again just how dangerous our liberal media IS. Journalism is DEAD. Had we had ONE ounce of integrity from the newsrooms it would NOT have taken EIGHT months for the truth to surface.

I’m almost certain our POTUS will still walk away from this an innocent man, but I am guessing that Hillary Clinton may very well have blown her future bid at the White House.

If you remember correctly, Clinton and the White House immediately blamed the fiasco over a movie released making fun of Islamists. That a mob attacked the embassy because of a video that NOBODY had ever heard of. They stuck with that story for weeks after, even though, they KNEW IT WAS a terrorist attack, planned by radicals, and in the process KILLING four Americans.

I am not preaching anything that has not already been discussed about a zillion times now on here and several other media outlets, but I cannot begin to stress the significant importance that as American citizens, it is TIME to wake up!!

Our media, on the left is single handedly destroying our country. They have demonized a movement of concerned American citizens who became concerned with the outrageous spending habits of Washington. The Tea Party was formed, and was quickly tabbed to be nothing more than “red-necks racists”. Our media quickly came up with derogatory names, insulting anyone who was remotely associated with this crusade.

If anyone DARE disagrees with Mr. Obama, they have GOT to be a racist! If anyone stands for traditional marriage are “Gay Bashing, homophobes”. If anyone is pro-life, the HATE WOMEN! If anyone wants to stand behind our 2nd amendment, they are radical-right-winged morons.

One thing is for sure, journalism as we once knew it, is dead! It is up to those of us, who know better, to stand up and fight. I am all for ALL citizens of this land to have the right to agree or disagree, but when our media is bulldogging the people who disagree with this current administration and doing whatever they can to keep a particular party in power…….it has GOT to be GO TIME!

There are several great hubber’s on here who have and are trying so hard to stand up and do the right thing. It is no longer a republican or democrat issue as far as I am concerned. It is a matter of standing up for what “WE” believe in, not what our media or some giant corporation believes in….it is in my opinion “principals” that so many of us up grew on that meant something that matters. It matters now MORE than ever. Quit worrying about being politically correct. Quit worrying about “offending” others who disagree. To start doing what we know is the right thing to do. THEN, and only then, can we rest our heads at night and sleep.

Hey, I am on my lunch break right now, and knew SOMETHING had to come out of my brain and on to paper or I was going to explode. As I said before, this is nothing new and I am not on to anything earth-shattering….just HAD to release my thoughts and rants.

I want to shout out to some of those hubber’s I was referring to earlier……that is Bob, Jim, Mike, Will BPop, and PQ just to name a few…you guys inspire me. I know there are others on here that I am forgetting, but I love this place and many of its people.

Hello Chris, Benghazi may go down in history as one of the best kept secrets of this administration. It is amazing how many comment "That happened months ago, it doesn't even matter now."

This administration, with help from the Media, were successful in burying the failed Fast and Furious operation that also cost some lives. I guess based on this success, they felt they could pull the same crap with Benghazi.

We have to admire those with the courage to step forward and tell the truth. They will of course pay a high price for this honesty. Their careers will be ruined, their personal lives will be picked apart, and many will hate them. These brave souls who are willing to endure this may feel good about what they are doing, but could live to regret having done the right thing.

Any questions regarding the Benghazi tragedy are now put into Political and Racial categories. If you aren't a hard core Right Winger or black hater, you wouldn't even be asking that question. How stupid is this? What is wrong with knowing the truth?

If mistakes were made, we can learn from them. If someone just flat did not do their job resulting in the death of innocent people, they need to be identified and replaced or retrained.

It disturbs me greatly when they place the blame on a building, or a department that works in that building. Never do they say "Johnny Doe" of Homeland Security dropped the ball on this situation and has been replaced. Nope, it is "The White House did this, the Pentagon did that," and they are nothing but buildings.

Sorry Chris, didn't mean to write a hub.

"Benghazi was a long time ago."

-Jay Carney

And with that, we are supposed to just move one...nothing to see.

There are two major scandals here:

1) The Obama administration was woefully inept, which caused the deaths of four outstanding Americans, and then they lied about it.


2) The Media's blatant refusal to do its job and tell the American people the truth about the attack on Benghazi.

The left can say what they want about hated FOXNews, but without them, Benghazi would have been successfully covered up.

Excellent hub, Chris!

Awesome insights and observations for a rant. My rants are much more incoherent and usually involve my husband taking a double dose of Advil by the time I am through, but you said everything I have been feeling for the last six or so years. Voted up and shared.

Watch the President grow even grayer in the coming weeks. I feel that Benghazi was and still is a real FUBAR. The whitewash is coming off the fence. Nice Hub.

No need to apologize Mike, your comments are always welcomed, no matter HOW long they are. I agree, this IS one of the largest cover-ups in history, and it is ALL done in the name of political power. Four dead, that could have been prevented had we had an ounce of leadership from our President. He failed. He is in over his head, and has NO place in the position that he is in. I don't know how else to say it.

As always I appreciate your dropping by.

Hi Will!

Boy do I agree...without Sean Hannity from FoxNews, this tragedy would have been completely swept under the carpet. I also believe had it under George Bush's watch, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, NewsWeek, Time and EVERY other news agency would have exploded with outrage over all of this.

Why is it so hard for so many Americans to NOT see this?

Hello Gawth,

Nice to see you.........I think Obama is going to look more like Morgan Freeman by the time he leaves office.

It will be very interesting to see what Jay Carney has to say after tomorrows testimony by the whistleblowers.

He will have to dig deep into his bag full of weasel words to answer the questions by the press. The press will print his answers word for word, because they believe him.

I can't even imagine having a job like Jay Carney where I would tell lies for a living.

I know, the last White House Press Secretary that I thought had an ounce of integrety was the late Tony Snow. He was a class act.

It will be very interesting on how Carney handles this....

Carney will definitely earn his pay over this issue. It must be an interesting job to be a professional liar. I would love to see the listed qualifications for this position.

Must be able to lie with a straight face.

Will always say exactly what he is told to say.

Will never admit he lied about anything.

Your correct, Tony Snow was the best we have ever had.

Not only does this Carney guy LIE on a regular basis, he has a smugness to him that only assures to most logical thinking viewers that he IS a creep.

Thanks so much for the mention. It feels good to know that some people are listening. I appreciate your rant and in fact, this morning, I wrote about Benghazi in advance of the hearings. I am hoping that this is the straw we need to topple this administration and Clinton. If the MSM ignores the hearings I think I will go mad. Up and awesome.

You are so welcome pops...I love to listen to your thoughts, you motivate me to write about issues....

I have a strong feeling the MSM WILL indeed do everything they can to ignore this and try to move on.

We will see....

Thanks again,

I've been watching the hearings and so far, they are devastating to Obama.

I am unable to watch, but have been wondering what is going on.....NOW, the real question, will the media try to make this seem like a moutain out of a mole hill?...rather a mole hill out of a mountain.

Chris, they think I'm crazy but with all the scandals and now Obamas new energy garbage along with amnesty issues I truly believe that we may see a leader in one of the Southern states stand up and make a case for succession. No conservative can stand for much more of this. I read a detailed report that said Tx would become another California if amnesty happens again and that it might become that way anyway in the next two elections due to the takeover of hispanics.

They think I am crazy too! Apathy is rampart. Sooner or later, the crack in the dam is going to burst.....and I think, ULTIMATLY, that will be a good thing.

It is going to take some earth shattering events to WAKE up those who have drifted off to realize it is TIME to start implimentng conservative values once again.

I still have faith in the American people and that they WILL do what is right....eventually. I only hope we can repair all of the damage that is being done.
