Boehner: GOP To Investigate Benghazi

House Republicans moved on two fronts Friday to dig for answers on Benghazi, with Speaker John Boehner announcing a special committee to investigate and a key panel subpoenaing Secretary of State John Kerry to testify.

In a significant shift, Boehner announced that the House will vote on establishing a select committee to investigate, on the heels of newly released emails that raised additional questions about the White House’s response. 

“In light of these new developments, the House will vote to establish a new select committee to investigate the attack, provide the necessary accountability, and ensure justice is finally served,” he said in a statement.

Boehner has long faced pressured from rank-and-file members for months to form such a panel to probe the attacks which killed four Americans including a U.S. ambassador, and until now had resisted. Fox News is told the speaker made the decision Thursday to go forward with a vote. The committee is expected to be bipartisan, and Fox News is told Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., is among those being considered to lead it.

The committee would still have to be approved on the House floor.

The movement comes after newly released emails raised questions about the White House role in pushing faulty claims about the attacks.

Caught that key line right away, didn’t you? “Still has to be approved ...” Gosh, do the Republicans have a majority in the House these days, or is this yet another piece of worthless BS grandstanding?

Meanwhile ... “at this point, what difference does it make?”: the emails have finally leaked out that makes these bastard’s guilt apparent, is 100% sticky, and goes all the way to the top. Investigate? Why bother. Impeach ‘em all.

A newly-released government email indicates that within hours of the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks on Americans in Benghazi, Libya; the State Department had already concluded with certainty that the Islamic militia terrorist group Ansar al Sharia was to blame.

The private, internal communication directly contradicts the message that President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice and White House press secretary Jay Carney repeated publicly over the course of the next several weeks. They often maintained that an anti-Islamic YouTube video inspired a spontaneous demonstration that escalated into violence.

The email is entitled “Libya update from Beth Jones. ” Jones was then-Assistant Secretary of State to Hillary Clinton. According to the email, Jones spoke to Libya’s Ambassador at 9:45am on Sept. 12, 2012 following the attacks.
“When [the Libyan Ambassador] said his government suspected that former Qaddafi regime elements carried out the attacks, I told him the group that conducted the attacks—Ansar Al Sharia—is affiliated with Islamic extremists,” Jones reports in the email.

There is no uncertainty assigned to the assessment, which does not mention a video or a protest. The State Department provided the email to Congress in Aug. of 2013 under special conditions that it not be publicly released at that time. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) sought and received permission to release it Thursday.

“If the video was a cause, why did Beth Jones of the State Department tell the Libyan Ambassador that Ansar Al Sharia was responsible for the attack?” said Chaffetz.

And this information has been known about in Congressional circles for nearly a solid year now. Nearly a year!
And what did State - the entire Executive Branch - do? They ran around in circles and played Cover Up, Damage Control, CYA, and Image Protection.

Disgusting.




PS - There is a lot of bad information online about how to tie a hangman’s noose. In a proper noose, at the top of the knot, the stub end of the rope does not protrude at right angles to the working end. The stub end protrudes alongside it, in parallel, emerging from within the coils. This is because a hangman’s noose is an extension of a scaffold noose, which itself is an extension of the poacher’s knot, which is just a double bend slip knot. Tying a proper noose is a bit of a learned skill; it is more easily done with 4 hands, or with 2 nails a distance apart sticking out of a board to use as corner holders when you build the knot. Once it is wrapped, the hangman’s noose has to have the slack taken out a wrap at a time from the top down. In the end, when properly made, a hangman’s noose will completely unravel if the bends are held in place and the working end pulled, if the noose has nothing to tighten on.

I am a true Conservative: I believe in doing things the right way.

cheap drugs

I had to pay a quick visit to my doctor today to get my daily prescriptions renewed.

I hate being old enough so that I have “daily prescriptions”. Age sucks.

Anyway, I don’t have prescription drug insurance.  So I try to get the generics, to save money. And I try to use a discount pharmacy, like the one at our local Walmart.

But while checking out at the doctor’s today, I saw a couple of “pharmacy savings card"s on the desk, and took one of each. Probably BS, but it couldn’t hurt to ask, right?

The young woman at the pharmacy recognizes me. Isn’t that awful? But I’m in there every month, getting refills. Sometimes several times, because no two of them ever run out at the same time.

So I show her the cards, and ask if they’re for real.

“Oh yes, they’re real alright. Let me see which one works better for you.”

And she goes in the back, and runs my scrips, and comes back, and tells me how FacesRX is the better one for me.

And my $310 bill dropped to $105.

And now it’s in the system, so I don’t even need to bring the card back next time.

Very cool.

Follow the link and you might also save a bundle. It doesn’t work for everything, and it seems to work better for the generic drugs. But hey, generic Lipitor for $10.67/31 day card? I’ll take it. Your doctor probably has the cards.

state deletes one of two killer vermin as obama opines on Oklahoma death penalty

My screen is sitting on a small box which itself is on a phone book. That’s cos I have to stand.  Hip problem I think but hurts like mad in other places. Ouch.
Saw this item from the USA which as you will imagine is well covered by DP haters on this side of the Atlantic.  Like it’s their business you know.

I know all of you in the US by now are aware and I suppose the left are in tears and wringing hands etc.

White House condemns botched Oklahoma execution saying it was not done in a humane way as the death row inmate died of heart attack after FORTY MINUTES writhing in agony.

And that’s just one.
Oh dear,oh dear.
The humanity.

Yeah well, I think some are ignoring the “agony” his victim suffered. F*** him.
I care more about the loss of a great actor, Bob Hoskins, at the age of 71. His was a worthwhile life and gave pleasure not pain to many.

However ... lets remember what Lockett took part in, and what his victim suffered.

Pay attention reader. Below from the article, comes almost at the very end of a very long piece in one morning paper. I haven’t read the other one yet but my bet would be it’s much the same. Oh, those barbaric Yanks. To which I’d reply, damn right. And happy to be both.

A four-time felon, Lockett was convicted of shooting 19-year-old Stephanie Neiman with a sawed-off shotgun and watching as two accomplices buried her alive in rural Kay County in 1999 after Neiman and a friend arrived at a home the men were robbing.

Warner had been scheduled to be put to death two hours later in the same room and on the same gurney.

The 46-year-old was convicted of raping and killing his roommate’s 11-month-old daughter in 1997.

He has maintained his innocence.

Lockett and Warner had sued the state for refusing to disclose details about the execution drugs, including where Oklahoma obtained them.

So here’s the rest of that headline and a link should you want to read the whole thing, and see photos of the broad nosed, thick lipped brown vermin who are involved in this story.
Now mind you ... I could be mistaken but.  Perhaps if the victim had been a black girl, her murder would have been printed way higher in the article?
Like the first line had her killers been white.


Clayton Lockett execution halted 20 minutes after first drug administered
This cocktail of injections had not been tried in Oklahoma before
Lockett sat up 13 minutes in and said ‘something’s wrong’
President Obama’s spokesman said that the White House does not believe the execution was done in a humane way
Oklahoma governor is calling for an independent review of the execution
Lockett’s victim’s family put out a statement- presumably written before the execution- saying they are ‘thankful this day has arrived’
Inmate finally suffered a massive heart attack and died at 7.06pm

By Helen Pow and Associated Press

read all

White House spokesman Jay Carney said Wednesday that President Barack Obama believes evidence shows the death penalty doesn’t effectively deter crime.

Words by Sammy Cahn and Music by Julie Styne

It seems to me I’ve heard that song before
It’s from an old familiar score
I know it well, that melody

I know each word because I’ve heard that song before
The lyrics said “Forever more”
Forever more’s a memory
Please have them play it again
And I’ll remember just when
I heard that lovely song before

above has been slightly edited
