Benghazi Cover-Up: Obama, Democrats and the Lapdog Media

The Benghazi scandal roared back to life like a raging inferno into the public consciousness last week with a newly released Ben Rhodes “Smoking Gun” White House email. Ben Rhodes, the White House Deputy Strategic Communications Advisor is shown to be orchestrating a White House strategy to focus the Benghazi attack on a relatively unknown anti-Islamic internet video. Ben wrote, “To underscore that these protest are rooted in an internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.”

The highly respected conservative analyst, Charles Krauthammer, opined that the discovery of the Benghazi email is reminiscent to the discovery of the Watergate Nixon Tapes. The Rhodes email, transmitted to those in the White House inner circle, were talking points for Susan Rice to use during her five Sunday news show appearances where she blatantly discards the truth of terrorism for an internet video myth.

Stung by the disclosures of a link to the White House, the Obama administration and Congressional Democrats are again circling the wagons around Obama in their full scale defense and denial regardless of the veracity of new documents and testimony that contradicts the White House previous assertions on Benghazi.

Congressional elections are approaching in November and Boehner’s creation of a Benghazi Select Committee could not come at a worse time for the Democrats seeking to retain the US Senate. Democrats, according to the latest generic congressional ballot, are four points behind the Republicans. If this trend continues or worsens as a result of the public’s evaluation that Obama’s administration is guilty of covering-up Benghazi and if Congressional Democrats are seen correctly by the public attempting to obstruct the Benghazi investigation the storm heading towards the November election for the Democrats may be worse that what hit them in the 2010 election cycle.

Boehner’s decision to form the Select Committee was received by Democrats like a picnic outing in a nuclear blast zone. Still, Congressional Democrats are trying to ride the fence, appearing with straight faces as rational and non partisan. Our mainstream liberal media “prostitutes” are tied ideologically to the hips of Congressional Democrats and the Obama administration. All are inwardly trembling in fear that the Benghazi Select Committee will prove without a doubt what they already knew, that the White House lied to the American people and conspired to hide the facts. Congressional Democrats and liberal media have been complicit in the administration’s cover-up.

Americans are not as easily apt to accept the political propaganda spoon fed by Washington as they still taste the residue of spoiled milk in their mouths from the gratuitous deception and lies of the Obama administration regarding Obamacare.

Congressional Democrats are in a quandary deciding whether or not to actively participate on the Benghazi Select Committee. Some are arguing a boycott to delegitimize the Benghazi Select Committee and its future findings. That may be a dangerous proposition as the public will rightly see Democrats attempting to obstruct justice. Maybe, the best strategic maneuver for Congressional Democrats is to sit on the Select Benghazi Committee where they can continue, in a highly partisan role sabotaging, impede, impugn, and manufacturing controversies to minimize the impact of damaging evidence implicating White House malfeasance or criminal activity.

To shape public opinion, Democrats are mobilizing their greatest weapon, their eagerly compliant liberal press. Democrat pillars of propaganda, liberal media, academia, and Hollywood have received their Democrat orders and are gearing up to portray the Republican members who will sit on the Benghazi Select Committee as some type of KKK members riding in from the South. Already, the lapdog NBC reporters are attacking Republicans for using the Benghazi scandal in their fundraising appeals. Drip by drip, day by day the liberal media will work in concert with the White House to discredit Republicans and the House Select Benghazi Committee.

Until the release of the Ben Rhodes email, the liberal media empire thought they buried the Benghazi scandal for good. What else should the public expect with the media interchange of siblings and spouses who also work high in the Obama administration? Don’t expect fair unbiased news coverage of the Benghazi Select Committee or Republican efforts to root out the facts from NBC, NPR, ABC, CBS, CNN, or MSNBC. The colossal indifference and lethargic journalistic interest on a major Obama administration scandal that left an American Ambassador and three other servicemen dead in Benghazi is a media scandal on its own.

Imagine for a moment that our forefathers were present to witness Congress and the Obama administration in action. You know very well, they would be devastated and broken at the immorality, poor character, and dishonesty of our governing class. The vision as prescribed by our forefathers and passed on to generations required men of good character, integrity, and honesty to uphold the framework of the US Constitution and our Republic. Congressional Democrats have abrogated their link with our forefathers as they forsake their solemn pledge and oath to the US Constitution to proffer allegiance to a progressive theocracy over the free will of its citizens.

Hillary once spoke to Congress about Benghazi when she stated, “What difference does it make?” Well, Hillary Americans expect and demand our leaders to be honest, to serve their country, to abide by their solemn oaths, to be truthful, and to possess good character. What Americans continue to learn about Obama and Hillary within the confines of the Benghazi scandal is that both are an empty suite. America owes Ambassador Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, former Navy Seal; Sean Smith, a US air force veteran; and Tyrone Woods, a former Navy Seal a full and deliberate investigation of the Benghazi scandal.

Congressional Democrats and the Obama administration attempt to thwart and obstruct the Benghazi Select Committee investigation may be counterproductive and may help sweep many Democrats from office. In the latest polls, Republicans receive 51% support for their continued investigation on Benghazi while those opposed are polled at 34%. Democrats speak and act on the Benghazi scandal at your own political peril.
