Rep. Trey Gowdy: ‘Explosive’
Benghazi hearings ‘coming quickly’

Washington Times [DC], by Jessica Chasmar

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/28/2013 8:42:12 PM

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

I like Mr. Gowdy but I´ll believe it when I see it. And even if there are explosions I doubt the msm and most Americans will care.

Thanks for caring Trey, but nothing will come of it. I doubt you could find 1 in 10 people who have heard of Benghazi. Most could not even name their own congressperson.

I like Trey Gowdy and don´t see him engaging in baseless hype. I´m hoping that their ducks are in a row BEFORE the hearing begin.

These ´explosive´ hearings should have occurred Oct 11 last year, not May 11 or whatever this year. Agree that 90% of Obama voters haven´t a clue what this is even about.

Perhaps this is it, or something that comes from the blue. I just 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.

When the criminals run the Department of Justice, it´s very hard to prosecute them.

The president and entire Obama regime use the trappings and powers of the office and departments reporting to the executive branch to advance their ideology, laws be damned.

And half the population and most of the press are just fine with that. *sigh*

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.

Of course, the RAT infested media whores will take up Mrs. Clinton´s cry, "What does it matter."

Don´t plan on filling too many of the media seats at the hearings with the lamestream media folks. Ol´ Gosnell is gonna get more coverage than 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.

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 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.

Obama, the regime and the press successfully suppressed Benghazi long enough to get re-elected.

At the end of any hearings, Obama will still squat in the White House. And.....I expect that if there are any casualties, it might be Hillary.

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force. "People are in that head-space and in that heart-space. It´s that time of the year where people are much more reflective and much more open to connecting with

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

Democrats seek to reshape midterm

Democrats have a problem and everyone knows it. President Obama calls it a “congenital disease.” If they can’t control it, Obama could spend the final years of his presidency battling not only a Republican House but also a Republican Senate. Democrats don’t vote in midterm elections. That’s an exaggeration, of course, but the core of the Democratic coalition is made up of many people who turn out to vote only in presidential elections. The Republican coalition — older and whiter — suffers less from midterm falloff.So much has been made of the building blocks the president assembled to win his

Once the province of activists and stoners, the traditional pot holiday of April 20 has gone mainstream in the first state in the nation to legalize recreational marijuana. Tens of thousands gathered for a weekend of Colorado cannabis-themed festivals and entertainment, from a marijuana industry expo called the Cannabis Cup at a trade center north of downtown, to 4/20-themed concerts at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater — acts include Slightly Stoopid and Snoop Dog — to a massive festival in the shadow of the state capitol where clouds of cannabis smoke are expected to waft at 4:20 p.m. MDT Sunday.

Last night, Chris Hayes face off against Assemblywoman Michele Fiore over the ongoing saga of the Bundy Ranch. Fiore reminds us why we love TV. (Video) Fiore for the win! The Assemblywoman is feisty, unflappable, stays on message, goes at Hayes hard, and comes out looking great. A terrific segment and a good interview by Hayes, amazingly enough. The best part was when she left him flat-footed right at the end after catching him with the slaughter question. Although Hayes salvages the moment for himself with the barbecue crack. You can agree or disagree with Bundy or Fiore all you

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
