Closing Thought–26Apr17

“Benghazi Calling!”

I remember the days when the GOP was jerking off on their desks because of the attack in Benghazi that killed the US ambassador to Libya.  All the investigations that found nothing…all the politicians face time on talk TV…..and all the conspiracy crap from the bowels of the likes of Alex Jones, WND and a wealth of morons from the Right.

Then in 2016 we had candidate Trump that mentioned it whenever it was advantageous…..and he was concerned how lax Clinton was with the security of our diplomats……

As usual the Trump person was full of piss and vinegar….why?

Although President Donald Trump repeatedly railed against Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the attacks on the Benghazi consulate, he still has yet to nominate anyone to oversee American embassy security.

As Politico reported, Congressional Democrats are calling the omission hypocritical while Republicans are encouraging Trump to work faster to fill this and other important posts at the State Department.

“The State Department has security professionals who are up to the job, but we do need all hands on deck given the many evolving threats we face,” said Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA). “I hope a nominee for assistant secretary will be put forward soon.”

It is okay with those tiny brains of the Trump supporters….that Pres. Trump is nothing like candidate Trump.

But what can you expect from a candidate from the hypocritical party…..but if the unthinkable happens will Trump be held up to the same scrutiny as Clinton….my guess is NOT a chance.

But if you prefer music to bullsh*t then maybe this selection will be a better end of the day………

That closes down the notebook for the day….be well, be safe….tomorrow is another day….chuq

  1. One thing that, I guess, I must have missed in watching some of those Benghazi! Benghazi! Benghazi! Hearings, is that they never seemed to place the event, which occurred in a mere outpost, into context–reportedly used mostly by CIA and NSA. Let’s go back to 1983.

    Half-way through St. Ronald (“Well!”) Reagan’s first term, a truck bomb blew up the Marine barracks. in Beirut, Lebanon’s Capital–killing 241 US Marines, and two Sailors. Also in 1983, another truck bomb, hit the US Embassy in Beirut, killing 63 people, including 17 Americans.

    The “Trump Republicans” know what thy want to know, and hear only what they want to hear. But, did they ever grieve for all of those ee3d Americans, like they did for the Benghazi f0ur, and let’s not forget the (assumedly) Lebanese who dies either!

    1. I said all along that the wrong questions were being asked about the Benghazi attack….those hearings were political games only…..chuq

    2. Those were not planned prolonged attacks. Benghazi has nothing to do with Trump or Republicans. It has to to do with Hillary Clinton refusal to do her job to protect state department employees. Furthermore they stopped assets that could have saved these Americans. Furthermore Clinton /Obama gave a stand down order to spec ops to not go defend our countrymen. They disobeyed but it was too late to save our Ambassador and Sean Smith. There is much more to the story. I recommend you read The book #13Hours or see the movie.

    1. The wrong question were asked during the investigation…..there is more to this tale than we are told….thanx for the visit….chuq

  2. Time magazine’s Fact-Check article is linked as follows: Sure, there are differing viewpoints and, some people do, in fact, embellish their own versions. I was”t there, and neither would I assume that anyone reading this blog was.

    Before the first, of eight (was it), Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy did boast that they were going to use the Hearings to, more or less, crucify Hillary. Note the Time comment about various Conservative groups holding screenings, and having speakers, such as Tom Cotton.

    My comment about Reagan, and the 1983 truck bombings in Beirut–the Marine Barracks (143 killed) and the Embassy (63 killed, including 17 Americans) was decidedly different. Congress was more intent, back then, in trying to determine what happened, and how to prevent it from occurring again.

    I even recall, during one of the Hearings, one of the Congressman stated that Benghazi was calling Hillary’s home. Personally, I would have been trying to reach the Pentagon and SOUTHCOM!
