Representative Frank Wolf, The Quiet Lion, Retires



It would be simple enough to re-post the tribute to House Representative Frank Wolf we posted a year ago, but not good enough.

Congressman Wolf's office more or less shuts down tomorrow, Friday, 12/18/2014. Before we forget, we'd like to thank everyone in Wolf's office for their understanding, good will and support to us as we worked to help Wolf achieve sometimes seeming insurmountable ambitions designed for the good of the country. Special thanks to Wolf's Chief Of Staff Dan Scandling, with whom we exchanged so much, and who was always there to help us help Wolf. In a town where prima donna chief of staffs often rule, Scandling has been a tireless champion for his Boss, Rep Wolf, and to that end put in much overtime and effort on Wolf's behalf. Dan's integrity shone brightly. The country is a little better because Dan Scandling and his staff were there for Representative Frank Wolf.

Rep Wolf really is a rarity in DC. He has stood for what he believed in when get-along would have been better politics. He has fought congressional leadership when leadership got weak in the knees against the leftist media and the country club establishment. He has paid the price for being honest because the leadership knew he would do what was right, not what jellyfish politics demanded. Putting it bluntly, he gives a damn, and he means it. We can tell you that from the watchtower.

He has still been a visible figure on the talk shows, and as has so often been the case, the man we call The Quiet Lion spoke with calm but no-nonsense determination. His relaxed and pleasant demeanor masks a political prizefighter for whom more than a TKO will only suffice; his warm and unassuming manner belies a man of true and intense passion. While so many others shout passion and do little, he speaks in measured tones and does a lot. And on those rare occasions when justifiable indignation at one of life's injustices gets the better of his all-too-human nature - watch out: he's not fooling around. 

Some have tried to diminish his credentials as a conservative - probably the trolls who we, too, have fought online (it seems  some of their troll careers are coming to an end as we work with police and congress to now-successfully end that scourge onm Twitter). Make no mistake, perfection exists only in Jesus Christ and when it comes to being a conservative, Wolf's ratings from conservative groups is a record of which any Republican should be proud: Wolf gets a 100% rating from the National Right To Life Center. The Center for Security Policy gives him an 83% approval rating. American Conservative rating gives him an 80% though there must be some numbers missing there because the ultra-leftist aclu gives him only 8% and NARAL gives him 0%; in our judgement, that gives Wolf a 92% conservative rating. The NRA puts him in the mid-90 percentile range.

As of late, Wolf has been one of the very few voices to say directly what ISIS is doing and what their ambition is; as Hillary Clinton tells us to empathize with ISIS, Wolf tells the world what it needs to hear: ISIS is interested in nothing less than the total genocide of Christians in the Middle East. We hope he keeps saying it.

And then, of course, there is Benghazi. We like to be able to claim much credit for the fact that the Benghazi Select Committee exists as we campaigned so hard for the congressional co-sponsors to support it. The people on the committee like to post on their Twitter feeds their ten minutes of hearing glory, and make no mistake, some of what they say is quite good. But there is only one person who can take the singular bow for the Benghazi Select Committee, and that is Congressman Frank Wolf. He wrote the resolution, which was re-written with nary a change in another's name and then put on the floor by a clearly tyrannical House Speaker John Boehner, seemingly to deny Wolf the credit because Wolf plays by the only rules that matter: those of God and the Founding Fathers, in that order - not Boehner's. Many in congress are giving Boehner the credit for the Select Committee and that is simply wrong considering Boehner fought it for a year and a half until there were 191 congressional co-sponsors reading Boehner the riot act. We know - we watched him fight against it while we campaigned 4 hours a day, every day for 17 months to get it. But there would be no Select Committee had not one man wrote the resolution which brought about its being, and that man is Representative Frank Wolf. No matter what comes out of the hearings, all who take bows for their moments of glory stand under the very large shadow of The Quiet Lion who fought so hard for the bill he alone authored, which gave birth to what appear to be historic moments looming on the near horizon.

We will miss Rep Wolf's congressional reports and his dignified yet relaxed, straightforward style. We wish him all the best on his well-deserved retirement, but also secretly hope that he finds retirement dull and unsatisfying; so dull and unsatisfying that he continues to speak as only he can on issues which so desperately need to be voiced with the kind of courage which only Wolf has shown.

Here's to you, House Representative Frank Wolf. We raise our glasses in a toast to The Quiet Lion.

Well done, Sir. We'll never forget. Thank you.

Enjoy these great Rep Frank Wolf moments.

Report and Review of the 2nd Benghazi Select Committee Hearing

OP/ED

All quotes and images used via the Fair Use Act


On Dec, 10, 2014; the Benghazi Select Committee, for which this blog and group campaigned 4 hours a day, every day online for 17 months, had its second hearing, yesterday. Greg Starr, Assistant Secretary of State for Diplomatic Security, and Steve Linick, Inspector General with the State Department, both answerable to Hillary Clinton and working for the Obama Administration during the Benghazi attack and murders, testified before the House Select Committee on the events surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi.

In his opening statement, Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, a former prosecutor who never lost a case, showed admirable determination in his insistence that this committee will continue on and on through the months until we know exactly what happened 

"... BUT I ALSO PLEDGE THAT WE'RE GOING TO KEEP ASKING QUESTIONS UNTIL WE HAVE A COMPLETE UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT HAPPENED. TO THAT END WE WILL HAVE HEARINGS, IN JANUARY, IN FEBRUARY, IN MARCH AND UNTIL... AND THAT MEANS ACCESS TO ALL THE DOCUMENTS AND THAT MEANS ACCESS TO ALL OF THE WITNESSES WITH KNOWLEDGE. THIS COMMITTEE WILL BE THE LAST BEST HOPE FOR ANSWERING THE QUESTIONS SURROUNDING THE ATTACKS IN BENGHAZI. WE MAY ACTUALLY WIND UP ANSWERING SOME OF THE QUESTIONS MORE THAN ONCE. WE MAY RISK ANSWERING A QUESTION TWICE. THAT SEEMS LIKE A REALLY SMALL INVESTMENT COMPARED WITH WHAT OTHERS HAVE GIVEN AND ARE CURRENTLY GIVING."

Democrats on the committee, unfortunately albeit predictably,  consistently tried to ignore the details of what happened in Benghazi from a justice perspective and make the point that the hearings were about "moving forward" - to "insure this never happens again" - clearly trying to protect the President so as to protect the democrat party and hence, their own political futures. Democrat Representative Cummings basically illustrated that in full measure without once mentioning that the Democrats had any concern about justice for the slain Ambassador and the Ambassador's people , making the absurd claim that the main concern of the families of the slain was that future embassies would be protected, never mentioning justice for their loved ones. It was theater of the absurd played to a nauseating degree, and we award a mountain of shame upon Cummings for expressing such a, in our opinion, brutally callous and utterly unconscionable, clearly politically-motivated, viewpoint.

Congressman Jim Jordan, the third Republican to speak and question the two witnesses was spectacular and absolutely withering in his pointed questions, and in so doing took what we regarded as Starr's absurd sense of inflated self-importance down to that of the appearance of a little boy who had been caught doing a very bad thing:

".... I THINK IT'S A GREAT IDEA. BUT I'M NOT ALONE. CLEAR BACK IN 1999 SECRETARY ALBRIGHT SAID THE SAME THING. SHE THOUGHT WE SHOULD HAVE THIS AT THE UNDERSECRETARY LEVEL. TODD KYLE IN THE BEST PRACTICES PANEL THOUGHT WE SHOULD HAVE IT AT THE UNDERSECRETARY LEVEL. AND THE GUY SITTING BESIDE YOU (co-witness Linick) THINKS WE NEED TO ELEVATE THIS TO THE HIGHEST LEVEL. SO I GUESS WE'VE GOT TWO BIG QUESTIONS THAT THIS COMMITTEE NEEDS TO ANSWER. WHY IN THE WORLD WON'T THE STATE DEPARTMENT DO WHAT EVERYONE IN THE WORLD KNOWS NEEDS TO  BE DONE: ELEVATE THIS TO THE HIGHEST THAT WE CAN? MAKE IT EQUAL TO 'CULTURAL EXCHANGE'  AND 'INTERNATIONAL BROADCASTING', AND THEN THE BIG QUESTION AGAIN THAT I HOPE WE GET AN ANSWER TO IN THIS COMMITTEE. 'WHY WERE WE THERE (Benghazi)? WHY WERE WE THERE WITH THESE FACTS AND CIRCUMSTANCES?' THAT'S A FUNDAMENTAL QUESTION THAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW AND THESE FOUR INDIVIDUALS - AND THE FAMILIES OF THOSE WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES - WOULD LIKE TO KNOW AS WELL. "

GOP Rep Martha Roby skillfully brought out that, on the issue of "going forward", that the Obama Administration has totally failed to implement the Benghazi review board's security recommendations and Roby did so in a way that was quiet, polite, and ultimately devastating: Nothing is worse than having your entire argument dismantled by someone as courteous as Republican Representative Roby.

Republican Peter Roskam got into the details to a terrific degree and basically showed the incompetence of the Obama Administration on all levels of security and how the state department simply threw in the towel on security. Watching Starr's pathetically weak responses to Roskam became downright embarrassing. HUGE kudos to Roskam for getting the info he wanted, showing how little info Starr really had to give that was relevant and, in all respects, controlling the moment with great equal measures of human theater and sincere fact-finding.

Democrat Adam Schiff, alas, was the best at illustrating the Democrats' somewhat disingenuous approach to questioning by simply running out the clock on his own time, asking about general security around the world and almost nothing whatsoever specific about Benghazi. It was a shameful display of wonton disregard for the memories of the slain heroes and the grief and need for justice expressed by the heroes' families.

Democrats are the party of compassion? Sorry, but if the Democrat members of the Benghazi Select Committee amount to the collective textbook example of democrat compassion then I must say it: Absolute B*llsh*t. It is clear and apparent every Democrat on that committee, in our opinion, wants to sweep the facts of what happened in Benghazi under the rug and they aren't even showing the good grace to be subtle about it.

It seems very much like the Democrats really don't want to talk about what happened in Benghazi, only what the US can do from this point forward. That is literally like a criminal investigation in which the police only want to know how similar crimes in the future can be avoided and have no interest in finding out who committed the crime actually being investigated. That is exactly what the Democrats are doing - and in so doing playing politics to protect an Administration so as to protect their political party from the fallout of unflattering  disclosures and keep America from understanding acts by the Administration which may prove shattering in their illegality.

We are proud of this Benghazi Select Committee, proud of the members and proud of Chairman Rep Trey Gowdy who is demonstrating amply, so far, his dedication to this issue of justice for the Benghazi slain and why he never lost a case as a prosecutor.

We only have one thing to request of the Benghazi Select Committee and that's an answer to a question which we have been asking now for two years: WHERE ARE THE BENGHAZI SURVIVOR WITNESSES? Only the people on the ground can give a full accounting of what happened over those several horrendous hours, and if they have been shut up by the Obama Administration which now seems plain, then finding them and bringing every one of them in to testify must be the first order of business attended to from this point forward, or this entire Select committee will be reduced to a hypothetical exercise in meaningless political procedure. Indeed, that is a basic reason why we campaigned so hard for this Select committee, because only a Select committee has the power to subpoena and force the witnesses to appear to testify. Police need witnesses to any crime to bring justice. So does the Benghazi Select committee. It is as simple and basic as that.

Chairman Gowdy promised that all witnesses would be brought forward and we regard that as a huge shot across the bow to all those trying to make this issue go away. We expect Gowdy to keep his word because he strikes us a true southern gentleman as well as driven on issues about which he cares. We also promise you that we, too, will stay on the issue to insure that the witnesses become the absolute, central focal point of the hearings. No investigation of what happened in Benghazi can fulfil its function without the full, public and unredacted testimony of the survivor witnesses who were on the ground and saw it all, and America has a right to know it all.

Stay Tuned.

As of this writing, the entire second Benghazi Select Committee hearing can be seen on the C-SPAN archives, HERE

TEA PARTY FIRE ANTS DEBATE MONTEL WILLIAMS

...And What's The Deal With All These New Liberal-Supporting "Conservative"  Celebrities, Anyway? 
(All images/media/quotes used via the Fair Use Act)

Conventional dramatic structure dictates that the punch line be placed at the end. But in this case, the punchline is better placed up-front, with the rest of the backstory, afterward.

Former TV Talk show host and now leftist radio Air America celebrity Montel Williams claims to be a conservative.Here he is making the claim in response to TPFA co-Leader Kathy Amidon calling out Williams for grossly insulting conservative/Tea party favorite Michelle Bachmann.



So the question really is, what do you think a conservative is? If Williams believes he is a conservative, then IMO he is at extremely dramatic odds with the political reality all around him because in the world I live in, "Conservatives" do not agree to be TV pitchmen for Barack Obama Inauguration Commemorative coins and say he is proud to do so, as Montel Williams did in 2009:





If you like videos, here he is making his pitch, with a couple of funny editorial modifications made by whoever uploaded the video:

To add insult to injury, the coins are for want of a better word, "fakes" (a word used by at least a few journalists, along with rip-offs, etc). They are just standard US Currency with stickers attached to them.




Some have argued that Williams could not have known the unbelievably cheap quality of the product, but that, IMO, seems rather implausible considering he was sitting virtually right on top of them, and the stickers are apparently very poorly done and visible as stickers easily even in a casual inspection:





Why is this important? because as you will see in the screenshots from Twitter, below, all we did was Tweet to Williams - who had followed us first (no idea why, but seems troubling as you will see)- that we had been tapped to advise the Congressional House Science Committee on their investigation into Twitter trolls and Truthy, we having had so much experience and having been covered by media several times on the issue, and Williams fights the idea of a Twitter investigation by Congress vigorously.

Now, where I came from, additionally, Conservatives help other conservatives. The demands that something be done about the Twitter abuse and suspension of conservatives are very common now (though only TPFA campaigned on this issue directly to Congress). Every conservative knows about the Twitter conservative suspension problem if they have been anywhere near Twitter. But Williams fights against the idea of helping his "Fellow Conservatives" in this way, going so far as to say that Conservatives - presumably equally in his view - are trolls also (and presumably, then, Twitter allows conservative trolls to go wild too, which is absurd, since Twitter suspends innocent conservatives while plainly allowing leftist trolls to run mad). That, apparently, by "conservative" Montel Williams who in 2009 was proud to be the TV salesman for Barack Obama coins, which turned out to be fake.

Doesn't add up to your definition of "conservative", does it?

The bigger problem is we are seeing a pattern emerge, one in which celebrities, who call themselves conservatives pretty much out of nowhere, attack activist conservatives and endorse extremely liberal candidates and politics (and apparently really bad "Obama coins").

You will recall when we wrote about "conservative" Hollywood actor James Woods, who in our opinion appeared happy to help trolls attacking us while he himself supported Rudy Giuliani (who is an OK moderate, but he's sure no conservative in the true conservative definition, as are Ted Cruz, Rand Paul or Sarah Palin) and whose only online donation records we could find show him donating to way left-wing candidates:



Here is a supposed "Conservative" (apparently related to uber-liberal actor Alec Baldwin) Harriet Baldwin, who claims personal friendship with Woods and also claimed, in a tweet (not laced with IMO classless, foul-mouthed profanity which she has used repeatedly against us in the past), that our/TPFA thank you letters from Congressman Frank Wolf and Congressman Tom Rice were "bogus"(IMO clear defamation; after she posted that remark, World Net Daily proved the letters are real by confirming the fact by calling Wolf's office. Baldwin never apologized for the, IMO, plainly obvious slander):



Twitter is packed with so-called "conservatives"  behaving like this.

So just what on earth is going on here with these so-called "conservative" celebrities who attack conservative groups unprovoked, aid in the attacks, donate to liberals and pitch Barack Obama commemorative coins?!? 

In my opinion only, knowing the media professionally as I do, what we are seeing is a probably loosely-organized activism by far-left celebrities to infiltrate the highly effective Tea Party right, and in so doing move the nation's perception of the political center way to the left to compensate for the genuine threat to the left of Tea Party accomplishment. IMO nothing else makes sense. Here's how, in theory, it works: celebs make the claim of being conservative, media picks up on it, celebrity says things like "Giuliani for President" and "Do not investigate Twitter" and the mainstream media sells the perception to the public that anyone who is to the right of those "conservative celebrities" is a "far right wacko".  

TPFA is investigating this vigorously and will not let you down. Rely on it. We're going to find out where this is coming from because it makes no sense on the surface even to a casual observer well-versed in politics.

Our pledge to you also, about the Twitter Investigation, is this:

We campaigned hard for it:



We are advising Congress.

And while we like the investigation committee(which announced the investigation three weeks after the Twitter Trolls Must Be Stopped video was tweeted to Congress and 3 days after the committee asked us/TPFA us to help), at the first sign that the investigation is going "RINO" - and you all know that frustration: weak, wrong-headed, "conventional", too timid of leftist media response to do the job at full power - the Tea Party Fire Ants will swarm congress on Twitter, name names and demand that they get it together or will publicly cite  the committee as not competent and demand that the investigators be replaced, and we will do it every day for months - over a year as we did for Benghazi if necessary - until it's done right according not to ivory tower investigators being paid by public money - but by the public which has lived this horror and is demanding that congress do the job like righteous, hard-nosed and determined leaders, not weak-kneed bureaucratic  politicians looking for the easy way out every time something reveals itself which demands a little passion and elbow grease. Being "intelligent and measured" does not mean being weak and lazy. We know you - the true Tea Party people - generally don't trust your government in exactly the way the Founding Fathers warned all citizens to be wary of all governments. We promise to you that this congressional investigation of Twitter, one way or the other, will be done properly with results manifest which you will find acceptable, if we have to campaign all over again from scratch. What IMO appears to be the biggest case of ongoing censorship and emotional abuse in American history - what is happening on Twitter, whose execs have a practical love-fest with Obama - will be addressed and remedied.

Millions of innocent people are being criminal cyber-bullied, and driven to despair - and even suicide - from endless humiliation, rape and death threats, and conservatives are mostly at the receiving end of such activity - in the political realm, at least - while the trolls who attack (now labeled medically as everyday, common  psychopathic sadists) are clearly given free rein by Twitter. This is no time to screw around and play politics as usual. This is serious and we mean business. Twitter will be fixed by congressional action no matter what the social and political pressures may be. That is our promise to you. And as you have learned, we can do it, too.

Enjoy the Tea Party Fire Ants debate Obama "Fake Coin" Montel Williams threads, and watch as Williams seems to use circular logic, change the subject and ultimately claim  angry, self-righteous indignation as a debate response when all he had to do was not debate the people who Tweeted to Williams initially only once - people Montel Williams followed first before they followed him.



For readers' sanity I chose a thread reading that omitted the trolls. Here is a sample and see how Montel takes their attacks against us at face value, all the while sticking by his view that GOP Congressman should not investigate federal funds used to fund truthy and not investigate Twitter trolls, basically the only way that Conservatives will be able to be saved from having their lives ruined by Twitter trolls. Remember, Twitter defamation shows up on any search engine. You can never have looked at Twitter in your life and anyone who dislikes you can destroy your life just by tweeting about you. It's that bad, and needs to be stopped

A toll sampling from the Williams threads:



TPFA's Kathy seemed to have the right message to stop Williams cold: Post links to the videos of Montel Williams The  Conservative being a proud pitchman for lousey Barack Obama commemorative coins (ever-present trolls not included):




SO WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH THIS APPARENT NEW BREED OF LIBERAL-LOVING "CONSERVATIVE" CELEBRITIES?



WE'RE GOING TO FIND OUT.

Stay tuned.

Tea Party Fire Ants / Stamp Out Tolls Tapped by Congress as Advisors on Congressional Investigation of Twitter/Truthy

The title of this post pretty much says it all. To those of you who have followed this blog for awhile, you know how badly we were attacked by trolls for getting things like this (we won't publish them all - again -  you know the drill):



All the Fire Ants were defamed by trolls on Twitter, many TPFA received threatening DM's - on Twitter; someone who goes by  Stan Hjerleid Tweeted a map to Kathy Amidon's unlisted residence while impuning her virtue and a plainly thinly veiled death threat of a gravestone with our names on it; and Kathy was subjected to, IMO, truly twisted telephone messages by a certain Kristen Snow White, messages which in my opinion are better suited to the Manson Family then to Twitter users whose accounts Twitter still merrily hosts despite innumerable complains to "Delbius" Harvey, head of Twitter's euphemistic "Trust and Safety.

This group has been slandered, defamed, threatened and - here's the big question mark - suspended by Twitter's apparently politically far-left safety department while those who would terrorize people and ruin lives run amok on the social network platform in which the horror show masquerades as a pretty blue bird so harmless to look at that one is disinclined to believe that such a nightmare exists inside the platform.

Here are a few of our articles

Our guide to Online Trolls

Detailing Our First significant attacks by Trolls

Our Thanks to World Net Daily For Covering Our Troll Adventures and lending a Hand In Exposing the Problem



TPFA Demands An Apology from "Conservative leader" Harriet Baldwin For Repeatedly Untruthfully Stating That Our Legit letters from Rep Wolf Were Fakes, When they Are Legit (We Never Got The Apology From Baldwin Who Seemed To Delight In Repeatedly Describing This Group in Foul-Mouthed Epithets)


There were many of these about the Trolls. Here are a couple more appropriate to our being tapped as advisors to the Congressional Science Committee's investigation of Twitter Trolls, the possibility that Twitter is suspending conservatives out of gross and malicious political prejudice against them and if Truthy is a direct an intentional extension of that activity. 

We ask Twitter publicly why Kathy Amidon's account, @Kathy_Amidon with its 6,000 followers was suspended while the trolls have been allowed for years to run amok and defame and terrorize anyone they wish with apparent impunity - as long, in our opinion, as the victims are conservatives. Trolls cite the fact that Kathy Tweeted that the trolls who have been terrorizing her were acting like Nazis insomuch as Nazis were sadistic psychopaths and so, too, are trolls, according to new respected psychology studies. That was Kathy's apparent big breaking of Twitter rules - in defense of herself and an attempt to shut the trolls up. The fact that the trolls keep posting that moment of "transgression" with certainty is one of the many reasons why, in our opinion, we believe that the Twitter trolls are operating in collusion with the Twitter safety department, since they cite that comparative minor "infraction" with such certitude as being the reason she was suspended and forced to lose her 6,000 followers - followers who were applauding her conservative messages.

To Trolls: Obama Will Not Write You a Pardon. This title now seems to take on a more significant meaning, one of which we warned the trolls about long ago. As Obama's former pastor/spiritual advisor Jeremiah Wright would say, "The chickens are coming home to roost."

And of course, the most salient one: The Tea Party Fire Ants demand That House Oversight Investigate Twitter. The trolls will say our demands had nothing to do with the current investigation by the House. That leaves the trolls, however, it seems to us, groping for an explanation as to why TPFA/Stamp Out Trolls have been tapped as significant advisors to the investigation. Maybe Harriet Baldwin, who accused our three legit letters of thanks from Rep Wolf to be fakes, can offer an alternative explanation.

So far we have had very friendly, productive and, frankly, cathartic discussions with the House investigators - several, in fact, in just the last week. They are not fooling around - and neither are we.

As points of interest arise of which we may speak freely, we shall report all to you, dear readers.

To the trolls, we warned you and we warned you. Stop the harassment. Stop the threats. Stop the stalking and the defamation and the attacks. But you merrily defamed and threatened and stalked and attacked to your sick, sadistic joyous little hearts' content. We warned you that we had the ear and respect of many in Congress. You denied it. We warned you that the investigations were coming. Some of you wisely fled while others remained confident that there would be some kind of force-field  around you that would protect you from the power of Congress. And now the time has come to face the reality that no such protection has ever existed, and if anyone told you there was, they were, IMO, lying to you. Plainly.

Trolls, whatever happens to you because of this investigation, remember two things: 1., you were warned and 2., you brought it on yourselves. 

To the vast majority of nice readers out there, please also visit www.StampOutTrolls.com and please donate generously. TPFA is working with congress to Stamp Out Trolls as we promised you we would. The time is come. And to you genuine conservatives - and anyone else - who has been maligned, defamed, suspended, terrorized and threatened, your day of justice is on the horizon under the power of the only legal authority to offer it: the GOP-led U.S. House of Representatives. 

Tune in often and we will let you know any developments as soon as we can offer them publicly. 

This is a spectacular moment for free speech. The trolls are on the run and the arguable agency that has enabled them freely while suspending conservatives is now on the very serious hot seat. Celebrate!

THE BENGHAZI SELECT COMMITTEE BEGINS

All images and quotes used via the Fair Use Act

Many of us in the Tea Party Fire Ants worked and waited a long time for this. If you have been following this blog for the last 22 months you know how long and hard so many have worked. I won't repeat it all here again, just read back a few posts to see the toil and sweat many people with TPFA put in for this moment. 

The first of presumably many hearings are currently scheduled to stream live on the internet via CSPAN 3 today, Sept 17, 2014. If you do not see it on CSPAN 3 starting around 10 AM, check www.cspan.org to see if it has been moved to another channel (they have 3 online)


http://www.c-span.org/live/?channel=c-span-3


On this matter,  A BIG SHOUT OUT TO TPFA'S CO-LEADER KATHY AMIDON. This is a little thing on the surface, but little things can make a difference, and it is absolutely a perfect example of the mindset at TPFA, and we're proud of that mindset: to get things done. 


Kathy called CSPAN to find out when the hearings would be scheduled because they were not listed. Well, it turned out they were listed but CSPAN listed the event with wording so obscure and oblique that the words "Benghazi", "Select" or "Committee" were not even mentioned in the listing. After explaining who she was, the group and our association with Rep Wolf on this issue, Kathy informed them that they must change the listing so it read in a way that made sense for average viewers and at least get the word Benghazi in there. 


Low and behold, CSPAN did just that within 30 minutes:




Little steps, big steps, as long as they all point to justice on the issue of Benghazi. Well done, Kathy!


All other blogs and chat sites will report and gab about the commonly-known facts, but TPFA and this blog have never been about re-stating what everyone else says; we like to give you a little something of value you may not get anywhere else for the gracious time you allow us. So here are some new perspectives, in no order, to add to your consideration of Benghazi, the investigation of Benghazi, and the trolls who want anything but an investigation of Benghazi.


1. To begin with, take your info from the source. Here is the Government page on Benghazi run by the Republican House - in other words, the good guys in all this. This announcement was today, Sept 16, 2014:


http://benghazi.house.gov/news/press-releases/statement-from-benghazi-select-committee-communications-director


2. Gowdy appears to be doing exactly what a prosecutor who never lost a case does: building his case slowly and methodically. It is clear that Gowdy does not want headlines, he wants to win the case. What case? The case of why a President lied about the cause of the killings. A case about why he has been secretive to the point of seeming paranoia about any facts about Benghazi. A case as to why the survivor witnesses who were on the ground have either been in a few instances silenced, and in the rest of the cases, gone missing.


3. Yes the democrats are in a panic. Their anxiety is so intense that it has now taken on the practical effect of a dog whistle; above the pitch of human hearing, but sending their subhuman, animal-like  propaganda activists  scurrying in every direction. Some notable cases in point:


1. On Twitter, they are posting like crazy telling people the first hearings are on Thursday, not today, Wednesday. In other words, they want you to miss the first day of hearings, which occurs today, Wednesday, Sept 17, 2014 at 10Am EST and can be seen streaming live on C-Span 3. So there, trolls!

http://www.c-span.org/live/?channel=c-span-3


2. The democrats/liberals are in full-swing in terms of protecting Obama on Benghazi. here are few (we are not including live links - go to their dank dens of misinformation, if you dare, on your own):

George Soros-funded Media Matters is reduced to calling the Benghazi scandal a "hoax"! (Their word, not mine!). 


http://mediamatters.org/blog/2014/09/16/all-questions-answered-media-matters-guide-to-t/200752


Media Matters says that Fox News is taking credit for the select committee when in fact Boehner was pushed by fellow GOP congressman to establish a select committee on Benghazi. This part is actually partially true. Fox News had damn little to do with it, frankly. If you recall, TPFA boycotted Fox with demands for more coverage as the centerpiece of the boycott! (click image for video)




What Media Matters fails to mention is that Boehner was pushed into it when the number of co-sponsors for Rep Wolf's bill swelled to a bursting 190, and that was done in great part by a little group which made Benghazi the focus of it's efforts for 17 months, every day (yes, we're bragging - happily and loudly. What are you going to do about it? :)





The euphemistically-named "Benghazi Research Center" has a blog which is, IMO, plainly nothing more than a propaganda hit-piece against the Republicans who are leading the charge for truth. It's hilarious but also shows you the, IMO, the dangerous lengths the left will go to in an effort to silence the truth and mislead people away from the facts. As a lifelong student of media history as well as a longtime professional media  practitioner, I have to say that lengths of disinformation this gross IMO positively reek of Nazi Germany and Stalin's Communist Russia; where such people spread disinformation on this scale, people must be alert to the kinds of acts that history has proven follows such manifest disinformation. 

Never say, "It cannot happen in this enlightened age" or "it cannot happen here." Those were the same words the intellectual elites used to dismiss the warnings of Hitler and stalin until the streets ran deep in their own blood. 


This blog, Benghazi-Truth, has been here since practically the beginning of this Benghazi outrage. Where was the absurd leftist mouthpiece "Benghazi Research Center" then?!

The House democrats have launched their own blog about Benghazi which basically states, no joke, "the questions about Benghazi have all been answered." Incredible.

I don't know how these people can show their faces in public, seriously. I suppose they forgot this question: "Where are the missing Benghazi Survivor Witnesses"?



3. Not all liberal news outlets are as absurd as the ones listed above. Liberal stalwart New York Daily News is reporting that Hillary had another shredding session, this time in the basement of the State Department Headquarters to destroy Benghazi documents. You have to hand it to Hillary: once she develops a behavioral pattern, she sticks with it.

4. We're very pleased that Rep Martha Roby is on the Benghazi select committee. She's no-nonsense and like Gowdy, she will leave no stone unturned as she makes clear in this Breitbart video:

Here Roby shows her courage again by signing onto Rice's HRes442 which now, or course, has become Boehner's lawsuit against Obama's constitutional overreach. Benghazi-Truth and TPFA love a Congressperson who puts truth-finding above D.C. Country Club politics. She's doing the job her voters sent her to Washington to do.






5. WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?



That's right. The news departments for television networks CBS, NBC and CBS are nowhere to be found in a search of the last 24 hours. In fact, you have to scroll back several pages to find any in the last week. And CSPAN is showing the hearings on CSPAN 3, and many places only have CSPAN 1 & 2. 

Call CSPAN and tell them you want the Benghazi hearings right up front on CSPAN 1. If they balk, remind them that the Watergate hearings were on all three networks gavel-to-gavel and no one was killed in Watergate.


CSPAN (202)737-3220 M-F 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM



Only a few short hours before the first of the Benghazi hearings and here is the earth-shattering news the three major networks are showing at the top of their political pages - and as of this writing not one mentions Benghazi anywhere on their pages.







If you enjoy beating your head against a wall with the mainstream media, you never know - it might be worth a try. We do:

CBS NEWS (212) 975-4231


NBC NEWS (212) 664-3720


ABC NEWS No phone they are willing to give out. here is a contact page:

It seems Obama is wagging the dog via Clinton and the mainstream television networks are obliging dutifully, lest Obama's poll numbers get any worse:






6. Saving the best for last, we would like to remind one and all who was the one champion in the entire U.S. Congress who kept fighting for Benghazi truth, for justice for the slain, for the rule of American law to be respected when so many others were ready to thrown in the towel on Benghazi amidst media apathy and leftist demagoguery:  

U.S. Representative Frank Wolf.

If anyone doubts the time and effort Rep Wolf put in to keeping awareness going of the need for justice for the Benghazi slain, see this:

http://wolf.house.gov/benghazi#.VBkGSPldX5x

True to the typical ways of RINO Speaker John Boehner, who TPFA would love see replaced as Speaker of the House by Rep Trey Gowdy, Wolf's contribution to an investigation which never would have occurred without him has been all but pushed aside as everyone from Fox News to Boehner himself behave in ways which are almost unconscionable in taking credit for the Benghazi select committee. It's truly nauseating. Sure, we take big, low bows, too, but at the end of the day, all should, as we do, recognize that it was for over a year only Wolf in Congress who stood firm and demanded action on Benghazi, and without his HRes36 and tireless efforts on behalf of the Benghazi dead and their families and a country to which Obama plainly lied, there would be no fact-finding about Benghazi today. Period. This is Wolf's achievement, and he should be thanked and honored for it.


Rep Wolf retires at the end of this year. He's a great, good man and an American hero. Drop by his Twitter page at @RepWolfPress and mention how much you appreciate his many years of honest and devoted service to our country.
