Is Obama hiding the truth about
Benghazi because the truth would
impeach him?

Canada Free Press, by Judi McLeod

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 11/15/2012 8:56:53 AM

Even with his own reelection soundly in the bag, President Barack Obama is keeping the truth about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi as secret as his own locked-from-public-knowledge credentials. With four more years in his pocket to complete his destructive Fundamental Transformation of America, Obama is refusing outright to inform Americans why calls for help from American Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans to save their lives were ignored until their own violent deaths silenced them. This was Obama’s non-answer to Fox News reporter Ed Henry’s simple question at the White House yesterday:

He won´t be impeached no matter what he did or didn´t do. The Democrats in the Senate will not vote for removal under any circumstances even if treason could be proved. We need to just quit bringing up impeachment it´s a waste of time.

He´s hiding the truth for two reasons:
1. Yes, the truth would be impeachable;
2. He´s incapable of ever telling the truth under any circumstances.

Sorry for the double post, but #1, you are incorrect. The Senate is needed only to convict, and you are probably correct that they won´t. However, that doesn´t mean that the HOR can´t and won´t impeach the president. That´s what they did to Clinton. Impeachment is certainly not a waste of time here.

Obama is dragging his feet and maintaining a coverup until the Electoral College casts their votes no later than Christmas Eve. He is not the President elect until the votes are opened in early January. If Benghazi were to blow wide open and confirm gross negligence and perhaps a treasonous cover-up, would electors change their votes? I want answers before they cast their votes in mid December. We could avoid the impeachment process which our country can not tolerate now.

The drumbeat should be exposure now.

The difference between “would” and “will” might be in giving republican congresspeople a testosterone supplement. Like the Democrats use, both sexes apparently.

While the real work in Washington is going on over the budget, too many are obsessing over a minor event with the hope it will lead to the removal of Obama. Obama won the election, he is the choice of far more than half the population. Time to move on and fight the battles of the future.

#12´s glimmer won´t work if citizens don´t get serious about voter/election fraud by ensconced libtards fraudulently counting the votes. You need some public hangings to make it somewhat risky for these traitorous cretins to cheat. And that means starting today people, not someday. As well as local libtard judges who enable the cheaters to not be brought to account for their crimes.
Look at what the West campaign is going through with their challenge.

It takes 67 in the Senate to convict. It will never happen. I think it´s something even worse than impeachment they fear. I think they´re afraid a NATO ally, Turkey, was complicit in an attack on American soil which resulted in the deaths of 4 Americans. That´s why they don´t want to investigate. That´s why the militia ringleader sips orange frappes in a downtown Benghazi hotel without a care in the world.

The Benghazi "Annex" was a warehouse of arms which the CIA had illegally provided to the Libyan "rebels" (Muslim Brotherhood). They were trying to confiscate them so they could ship them to the "rebels" (Muslim Brotherhood) in Syria through Turkey. That´´s why Ambassador Stevens had dinner with the Turkish Ambassador the night he was killed. And that´s why this bunch of reprobates in the White House will do anything to keep it under wraps.

#12, I believe it requires a 2/3 majority vote in the Senate to convict an impeached president and remove him from office. Unless 2/3 of the citizens of the U.S. want him removed from office and are willing to vote accordingly in the 2014 elections (or in even greater numbers to counteract the inevitable Democrat voter fraud), then we cannot get rid of Obama this way.

Thank you #3 and #4. You are correct about the HOR does the Impeaching (a la Clinton) but the Senate does the convicting (they didn´t convict Clinton). Also until the Electoral College does their formal vote, he is only the supposed winner of the 2012 election. This is probably why he is dragging his feet.

If I were in the HOR, I would push for articles of impeachment. Obama is setting a very dangerous precedent for our country by being allowed to disregard the Constitution. The House must uphold it now, or we are lost. I have my doubts that the Supreme Court will do anything to help to rectify the criminal actions by our fraud in the WH.

"I can can tell you that immediately upon finding out that our folks were in danger, that my orders to my national security team were do whatever we need to do to make sure they’re safe. And that’s the same order I would give any time that I see Americans are in danger — whether they’re civilian or military — because that’s our number one priority.”

Poster #4, I searched for an answer, only 24 states don´t have the requirement that Electors vote the way their states has them pledged. The other 26 states and DC have State Law # listed, a few replace the Elector who refuses to vote the way they are pledged.

In Oklahoma (and three other states, it is a misdemeanor with up to a $1,000 fine to change their vote, however they are pledged to Romney.

If Benghazi gets more attention, and more scandals get some actual air time in the Pravda press, who knows. Yesterday, I saw a red/blue map by county and even California was a sea of red with little islands of blue on the coast.

Has it ever happened that an Elector revolt changed the outcome of the election?

Vote to Hold Lois Lerner in Contempt of

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced yesterday that it will hold a vote to decide whether former I.R.S. employee Lois Lerner is in contempt of Congress on Thursday, April 10th. Lerner has twice been called before Congress to testify about her involvement in the inappropriate targeting of conservative 501(c)(4) groups for extra scrutiny. On both occasions Lerner asserted her 5th amendment right not to testify. Rep. Issa and other Republicans on the Committee have maintained that Lerner waived her right not to testify when, during her first appearance before the Committee back in 2013, she made a speech proclaiming her

The Obama administration has made it increasingly difficult for Congress and inspectors general to uncover government misdeeds and access information in various agencies, according to recent congressional testimony and reports. On Thursday, Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz testified before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing that Attorney General Eric Holder stonewalled his investigation of the “Operation Fast and Furious” gunwalking scandal. Mr. Horowitz also said his office has been stymied in other investigations of the Justice Department because of the Obama administration’s interpretation of access laws, which essentially requires investigators to ask department heads for permission to investigate them. “For a review

Hypersensitive students and professors all over the country are about to score another victory for political correctness if they succeed in their mission to normalize the use of “trigger warnings,” which are intended to protect people from taking part in class discussions and media that might offend them. Trigger warnings are most commonly attached to online news articles and blog posts. They warn readers that the post contains specific, offensive content. An article about sexual violence, for instance, might come with a trigger warning for rape victims. The idea is to prevent post traumatic stress. But censorship-inclined activists are now eager to

Supreme Court Strikes Down
Overall Political Donation Cap

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Wednesday continued its abolition of limits on election spending, striking down a decades-old cap on the total amount any individual can contribute to federal candidates in a two-year election cycle. The ruling, issued near the start of a campaign season, will very likely increase the role money plays in American politics. The 5-to-4 decision, with the court’s more conservative members in the majority, echoed Citizens United, the 2010 decision that struck down limits on independent campaign spending by corporations and unions. Wednesday’s decision seemed to alter campaign finance law in subtle but important ways, notably by limiting

Earlier in the week, Twitter was ablaze with a debate over Obamacare and public opinion: Was the Washington Post/ABC News poll purporting to show the law´s approval slightly above water an outlier, or the beginning of a trend? I argued the former, citing a fresh CBS News survey that aligned with previous negative polling. The latest Quinnipiac poll should settle the debate. It pegs President Obama´s approval rating underwater at 42/50, with Obamacare clocking in at 41/55. A few additional findings: (1) Voters split roughly evenly on the generic Congressional ballot, with independents leaning toward the GOP by seven points.

The American Health Policy Institute conducted a confidential survey of 100 large employers—those with 10,000 or more employees—asking what costs they expect to incur from Obamacare over the next decade. Factoring in the health care law’s added mandates, fees, and regulatory burdens, employers anticipate cost hikes between $163 million and $200 million in 2016, a 4.3 percent increase. By 2023, employers will be paying 8.4 percent more than “what they would otherwise be spending” for

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there
