Gowdy lights up IRS Commissioner: ‘Words have consequences…’

trey gowdyAfter spending years colluding with the IRS in their targeted attack of the Tea Party and month blocking and obfuscating the congressional investigation, Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings called for an end to what he referred to as the “public harassment” of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. Cummings objected to Koskinen being made to appear once again before the House Oversight committee to answer questions regarding Lois Lerner’s hard drive. The IRS claimed that it crashed and was destroyed. However,  Lerner’s hard drive was merely ‘scratched’ and the data was recoverable.

Watching Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who is also the chair of the Select Committee to investigate Benghazi, it’s obvious why Cummings wanted to play protector instead of investigator, as his role on the House Oversight Committee requires.

Gowdy begins his questioning with a simple question. He said, “I’m going to read a quote for you from June 2014 and I want you to tell me if you know who said it. Okay? We confirmed the back up tapes from 2011 no longer existed because they had been recycled pursuant to the IRS normal policy.”

US embassies cower in fear of al Qaeda, despite NSA spying

islamMcClatchy reported recently on the closing of U.S. embassies in 21 predominantly Muslim countries. The U.S. State Department issued a broad caution about travel during August, which sparked debate over the National Security Agency’s spying on American citizens.

Barack Hussein Obama’s State Department, led by Secretary John F. “Swift Boat” Kerry, attributes the embassy closings to Muslim observance of Ramadan:

Given that a number of our embassies and consulates were going to be closed in accordance with local custom and practice for the bulk of the week for the Eid celebration at the end of Ramadan, and out of an abundance of caution, we’ve decided to extend the closure of several embassies and consulates including a small number of additional posts.

Ramadan is a Muslim holiday, during which terrorists are typically extraordinarily active, reinforcing Islam’s stellar image as a “religion of peace.” The State Department did not say whether or not additional security was being deployed at embassies. Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton withdrew security from the U.S. consulate at Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2011, leading to the death of four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador.

No one in the Obama Regime has yet explained how tracking telephone numbers, capturing email messages, and other spying on American citizens gathers any intelligence that might be useful in combating Muslim terrorists. Yet the NSA spying continues unabated, with many Republican members of Congress, such as Sen. Lindsey Grahamnesty (RINO-SC), defending the unConstitutional surveillance.

Is Obama hiding Benghazi survivors to cover up treason?

GowdyCongressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) was a guest recently on Greta VanSusteren’s On the Record. Both accused President Barack Hussein Obama of a Benghazi cover-up that makes President Richard Nixon’s Watergate scandal look like shoplifting a candy bar. Gowdy alleged that the Obama Regime is hiding survivors of the attack, dispersing them around the country, and even changing their names in an effort to make it impossible to uncover the truth of what happened that night.

Jake Tapper of CNN recently broke the story that dozens of CIA agents were in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2011. Is it possible that so many Americans were there because Obama was secretly delivering weapons to al Qaeda? If so, this could be considered treason.

Article III, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution clearly defines treason:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.

Arming al Qaeda, the Islamist terror network that attacked the United States on September 11, 2001, would amount to “adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” Impeachment can’t be far off.

Hillary accepts responsibility for everything, blame for nothing

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton testified before a U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on January 23, 2013.

Four Americans died on September 11, 2012, when Islamic terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

In the days that followed, President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and other regime officials began to claim that an otherwise peaceful protest turned violent because of a little-known YouTube video that allegedly “insulted Islam.” They repeated this lie to the American public for some time, despite knowing that the attack was planned and carried out by al Qaeda elements within Libya.

The President offered only vague, boilerplate remarks about “bringing the attackers to justice” on September 12. Listen carefully, though, as Obama begins to shift the narrative:

We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None.”

When Obama says “denigrate the religious beliefs of others,” he is subtly blaming the attack on an obscure YouTube video. The inference you are supposed to draw is that expression that undermines or questions Islamic beliefs must be suppressed.

Red State posted about this on October 17, 2012. How exactly Obama’s thinly veiled attack on the free speech rights of Americans amounts to preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution escapes us.

And on October 19, Hot Air‘s Ed Morrissey catalogued the Obama regime’s trail of lies about what motivated the deadly attack and who carried it out.

Hillary finally appeared before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee on January 23, 2013 to give testimony about the incident. Most of Hillary’s Republican inquisitors failed to ask any meaningful or relevant questions. Democrats appeared to be helping Hillary launch her 2016 campaign for President. And no one asked her who ordered US counter-terrorism forces to “stand down” – in essence, refrain from responding to cries for help from the ambassador, consulate security, and CIA officers on the scene.

Watch as Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) questions Secretary Clinton:

In summary, Hillary accepts responsibility for everything, but blame for nothing.

We suspect Obama himself issued the “stand down” order, but it appears much less likely now that Congress will ever pursue an answer to this important question.

What Islamists do to infidel ambassadors

Wake up, America. President Thomas Jefferson decided the only way to deal with “Barbary pirates” – Muslims – was to send in the military to annihilate them. Those who advocate sharia law stand in complete opposition to God-given freedoms protected by the U.S. Constitution. The holy warriors of jihad intend to subjugate you or kill you. They seek a caliphate – an entire world dominated by Islam and sharia.

Attacks on September 11, 2012 by armed mobs on U.S. embassies in Cairo, Egypt and Benghazi, Libya were allegedly precipitated by muslim anger about a video clip posted on YouTube.

This is what Islamists do to infidels (non-Muslims). They kill unbelievers, perform disrespectful acts on their corpses, and parade them around in the streets like trophies:

Libyans position the body of US Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, for cell phone pictures.

Muslims drag US ambassador’s body in the street.
