Rep. Trey Gowdy, appearing on Fox News on Saturday afternoon, promised that “explosive” congressional hearings over the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, are “coming quickly.” “There are more Benghazi hearings coming; I think they’re going to be explosive,” Mr. Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican who is a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told Fox’s Uma Pemmaraju. Mr. Gowdy wasn’t able to give out too many details, but he hinted that the public for the first time might hear from witnesses to the terror attack
Well Trey ~ watch your back ~ many who were about to expose something ended up DEAD ! Any of you who care ~ Please pray for his safety and that what he has to say will make a difference. They should not have died ~ let their bolld be paid for.
I like him. He is another one of that special group that I call the good guys in D.C. - thank God for them. God bless guide, strengthen and protect them, and all who fight the good fight for our country.
There has to be a turning point from this madness known as the Obama Administration. Perhaps this is it, or something that comes from the blue. I just have hope. Our Founding Fathers expect us to have hope.
Spot on #13, Issa told us the same kind of promises of action about "fast and furious" gun running, and the curious 5 trillion payment to the federal reserve which has been fastidiously scrubbed from the records.

Sorry, Trey. WTP expect nothing more than a washed out fireworks show fizzling in the falling rain. We were told the same about FnF ...still awaiting that shoe to drop.Our brave Military deserves so much better than what we give them.
Be prepared - if it emerges that Obama was intentionally negligent or worse during Benghazi, and that he acted (or refused to act) because of his chance of reelection - this will be viewed as a net positive by Democrats. They only care about keeping King Barack enthroned, so any wrongdoing he may have engaged in that helped him retain power will be applauded, not criticized, and certainly not punished. They have already given His Majesty the thumbs up for lying about the YouTube video, so - be prepared.
I like Mr. Gowdy. but whenever I hear talk like this from a Republican, I wince because the explosive testimony never materializes. McCain will call him a "wacko bird". The media will call the whole thing old news and we need to move along to important matters. The crazies on the left will call him a racist. I am now so jaded that I think nothing will ever touch our anti-American boy king. Please, please, please, prove me wrong. No one deserves examination more than this administration. They need to be held accountable for the deaths of these four Americans.
It´s so sad the state of the nation now. One poster after another just shrugs and says, "what difference, at this point, does it make." And they are right. Good look Mr. Gowdy. I wish you well. But it won´t matter. How horrible to be born in a time when we had to watch the great American experiment die.

Trey Gowdy is a former prosecutor, and while he is somewhat prone to hyperbole, he wouldn´t say this if he didn´t already know the facts.
I´m just hoping for a public hearing at this point, and that ´coming quickly´ really does mean SOON, like this week. The more time that passes with his words hanging out there, the more likely the hearings can be thwarted in some way....
Keep your witnesses secure, Mr. Gowdy. And yourself as well.
I just hope this time the Republicans can coordinate their questions so they make sense when asked and answered. We all the know the Dems will do what they can to obfuscate the testimony.
I have watched too many of these highly promoted hearings only to be disappointed when each prancing prince talks and talks and talks and finally blurts a question that makes little sense. I don´t hold out a lot of hope for this.
I am not optimistic that anything will come of this. The Hildabeest will come up with the "I have no specific recollection..." line of bullsqueeze, and there is 50% of the country that won´t listen to anything negative about our Dear [or Ear] Leader.
Or else, someone in the DNC will photoshop Representative Gowdy checking into a Charleston Motel 6 with a pair of underage llamas.
Obama answers to no one. He considers the US Constitution an outdated joke. With all the cheerleading forces in his corner, he is untouchable. Our citizens are morally bankrupt. The only thing they are concerned with, is when their next entitlement check will arrive. We have gone off the cliff. Only God can help us now.
Keep the faith!!! Heard on WMAL this morning: Joe DiGenova said his wife/law partner has been hired to rep. the whistle blowers and Victoria Toensing has a Top Security Clearance and the State Dept. is NOT ALLOWING HER access to them. Check out the pod cast, 70 am hour.
I have a little more faith in Trey Gowdy than some of you, but can certainly understand why folks are suspect. Im hoping they learned from the lack luster grilling of Hildebeast before and that now they are armed with more information to nail not only her but the WH.
If not, what should they do.. just let it go, and give up? We owe it to those 4 men and all the others who are still wondering if they would be left behind if the same thing happened again.
Exactly #36: Optimism should be tempered with a little realism from time to time but not to this degree here in these posts. It´s about time the DC types who claim to be on our side show a tireless, never give up demeanor, just like the socialists. We must NOT give up! Never!
This is a blaring, blatant aspect of Obama not protecting Americans(uh, oath of office?). History will show it was the first deaths of Americans on foreign soil in the name of Islam/sacrifice under this administration. Now that Americans have shown we´ll tolerate multiple deaths under Obama´s watch, as evidenced by the Benghazi apathy, the Islamo-Communists have copied that aspect to America as in the Boston Marathon bombings. See the pattern?
I like Trey Gowdy as well. But I agree with Rush that it won’t be something real like this but something inconsequential that will shock the lo-info voters (and the state-run media) into awareness.
Someone on this board once said: the only one who can get the right message to the various dem minorities, will be a member of that minority. And the only way the lo-infos will finally wake up will be the revelation of some stupid cultural slipup by the celebrity preezie.
Unless the explosion happens 3 months before 2016 election, there will be zero effect. Americans have the attention span of gnats. Already Benghazi if off the radar screen issues that poll as important. And Bambi is back to 50% approval on Rasmussen. We are so outnumbered.
We all have a right to our disappointments & our hopes but I´d be cautious of voicing those negative thougts remembering that what is bound on earth is bound in Heaven.
By all means let´s just trust the truth to come out & let God handle the consequences while we exercise patience. Somehow I don´t think He´s anxious to bring about something that will tempt His followers to sink to justified yet unkind gloating.
Rinktum #20 said it nicely. Trey, here today promises promises gone tomorrow, Whatever happened to Issa ?? Hey, whatever happened to Ron Paul? We all know what happened to Andrew. S.A.D. The occasional not corrupt looking congress person is permitted to speak, he´s in, then you never see him again. Tough tellng truth. Nobody has the time to resist commie medicine that is enveloping us slowly, silently, Orwell 1984 style. It´s time for EVERYbody to speak up. Not just the few.
(Video) With the passing of Nelson Mandela, the world has lost one of its greatest leaders. When Time magazine compiled its list of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century in the late 1990s, Mandela was one of just 20 in the category of most influential leaders and revolutionaries, along with our own civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Among others on the list: Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan, British Prime Ministers Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II, and Israel´s first Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion. And, in a nod to evil´s influence,
Media Buzz host Howard Kurtz brought all of his sports metaphors to a segment about Hardball host Chris Matthews’ recent interview with President Barack Obama, arguing that the sympathetic interview may have played to the MSNBC base but did little to advance Obama’s point of view. “I expected Chris Matthews to deliver a sympathetic friendly interview with President Obama,” Kurtz said. “But I wouldn’t even say he was pitching softballs—I’d describe it as whiffle ball…This is a guy who loves to interrupt his guests, right? He let the president go on and on.” “I would have thought, just to cover
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Sunday said that the life of a national politician can be an “ordeal” and the impact of uncivil treatment on his family could nix any 2016 presidential run. “It really is an ordeal to be part of public life...I also hate it when family is attacked and they get into the news,” he said on "Fox News Sunday." Paul said that some weeks, “the haters and the hacks go after” him and other weeks he has a more positive view. The Kentucky senator said he and his family would take about a year to decide
Really Big Coloring Books, Inc. has released a comic book-style coloring book starring Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. “Ted Cruz to the Future™ — Comic Coloring Activity Book” is a “non-partisan, fact-driven view of how Texas Sen. Rafael Edward ‘Ted’ Cruz became a U.S. senator and details, through his quotes and public information his ideas for what he believes will help America grow,” according to the description. Cruz’s inspiring story as the child of immigrants, Texas solicitor general, and finally, prominent junior senator, is playfully, yet accurately portrayed in a series of outlined pictures begging to be defaced by deft crayonists.
During Friday´s White House briefing, Jonathan Karl of ABC News and Peter Alexander of NBC News both pressed White House spokesman Jay Carney on a Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report that found President Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius had met only once during the three and half years after the passage of ObamaCare. (Video) After Alexander asked about the GAI report, Carney bizarrely suggested that Alexander should have called him to ask the question. Apparently, Carney would have preferred not to have to answer the question on camera -- and for good
In his attempt to downplay the IRS scandal during his soft-ball interview with Chris Matthews, Thursday, the President of the United States subverted the ongoing DOJ investigation of the scandal. Obama declared that the IRS office in Cincinnati was merely trying to "streamline the system" for “bureaucratic reasons” and that agents weren’t intentionally singling out “Tea Party folks.” Via White House Dossier: "If on the other hand, you’ve got an office in Cincinnati in the IRS office that I think for bureaucratic reasons is trying to streamline what a difficult law to interpret about whether non-profit is actually a political
A congressional delegation is expected to go to Nelson Mandela’s memorial services in South Africa and is scheduled leave Sunday, Fox News learned Saturday. It is unclear who House Speaker John Boehner is sending, but members of the Congressional Black Caucus are expected to be on the trip. President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama also will travel to South Africa next week to honor Mandela, the White House said Friday. Former President George W. Bush, as well as Laura Bush, plan to travel with the Obamas on Air Force One to the services, a spokesman confirmed.
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay

The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
