Investigating the Benghazi Investigation

May 10, 2014

Through all the hyperventilation, hysterics, rumor mongering, fund raising, and attempts to trump up a scandal, the Republicans in the House have not done one thing that actually makes our diplomats safer. In fact, they’ve cut the security budget for the State Department. Even now the new select committee is not investigating what can be done to to increase the security for our diplomats, they are investigating who had input in writing the ‘talking points’ for our Ambassador to the United Nations to use when she talked about the tragedy on national television. Despite them not being able to point to anything that has been covered up, they desperately want to prove that there was a cover up.

It’s no surprise that there was a lot of thought, care, and communications involved in crafting the talking points, there was a CIA operation involved. When the CIA is involved we need to be vary careful about what we say in public. Of course Republicans, seeing their willingness to expose CIA operatives, probably don’t think it’s all that important.

It is obvious that the Select Committee on Benghazi is more about fund raising, the mid term elections, and tarnishing Hillary Clinton’s reputation before the 2016 presidential election than it is about the safety of our diplomats abroad.

The right’s favorite ‘welfare queen in a cowboy hat’

April 26, 2014

The right’s favorite ‘welfare queen in a cowboy hat’ Bundy loves to show the world his pocket constitution. That’s nice, I have a copy on my iPhone but, from what Bundy says it is obvious that either a) he has never taken the constitution out of his pocket and actually read it, and/or b) he lacks the intellectual capability to understand the constitution. I vote for b.

If Bundy had read, and actually understood, the constitution he could not possibly say he doesn’t believe the federal government exists since the constitution establishes the federal government. He also claims the federal government does not have any authority in the ‘sovereign’ state of Nevada. Again, Bundy has either not read, or not understood the constitution, which clearly places the federal government above the state governments.

The states of the United States of America are not sovereign. They have not been sovereign since their citizens ratified the Constitution of the United States of America which established the federal government and made it sovereign over the state governments. Our constitution begins with the words “We, the people…” The federal government was established by the people, not by the state governments. It does not begin with the words “We, the sovereign states…”
