Dem Rep. Cummings Tears Into
GOP Rep. Issa For ‘Politicizing’
Benghazi During Congressional Hearing

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/8/2013 1:35:17 PM

Rep. Elijah Cummings was the first Democratic member of Congress to speak during Wednesday’s hearing on last year’s attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Cummings did not waste any time before going after Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), for what he believes was the congressman using the Benghazi attack for his own political gain. Cummings began by thanking the witness, former diplomat Gregory Hicks for his service and offering condolences for the loss of his colleagues in the attack. “If I had been in your place,”

He also kept reminding the witnesses that he would do "everything in his power to protect them". Could be taken as a threat. What would he be protecting them from?

The fact that Elijah is a member of the house of representatives because of the voting rights act of 1965 is a good enough reason to repeal the voting rights act of 1965.

This idiot Cummings is actually correct.

It was impossible for the military to arrive in time to save our brave Americans...if the orders are for the military to NOT at least try.

As the military was ordered to "stand down"..it was indeed impossible for military help to arrive in time.

Cummings is a tower of hypocrisy. The whole scenario put out by the Administration
was nothing more than a cover-up for POLITICAL reasons, ie; to enable the re-election of the President and keep Mrs C. out of trouble. You wonder if there isn´t a single Democrat with a brain that isn´t so tinged with partisanship
that they can think rationally.

Cummings is not bright enough to write his own talking points, so they must have been written for him. Cummings´ talking point about "death being a part of life" sounds too much like Shrillary´s "What difference does it make" or the White House´s "Benghazi was a long time ago."

It takes a lot of cheek to accuse a Issa of "politicizing" four deaths in Benghazi. If that is all the Dems have, they are in deep doo doo.

This is a tactic learned from the Clintons--

Attack your accuser-- try to find the moral high ground even when you are wrong

Always protect Bubba and Hitlery at all costs, so they can give you a job in the future!

It is a sad day full of people who needlessly suffered and died, left to dry by people trying to cover their sorry butts and fool the people....

They managed to get away with it, until TODAY.

The dishonor of these people is amazing. How would you like to be a victim sold out for their political gain over your life?

As Rush likes to say, the louder they scream, the harsher the attack the, more you know you are on target. Liberals always scream and attack when they are in trouble.

As NSA leaker Edward Snowden finally left Moscow´s airport, President Barack Obama met Thursday afternoon with nine members of Congress to discuss American surveillance efforts. Obama hosted what the White House called "some of the programs’ most prominent critics and defenders," though it did not include Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), perhaps the most prominent critic of the National Security Agency. "Today’s meeting was constructive and the President committed that he and his team would continue to work closely with the Congress on these matters in the weeks and months ahead," the White House said.

WASHINGTON— Dozens of leaders in the immigration movement were arrested Thursday after they blocked a major intersection near the Capitol in a protest of Republican opposition to an immigration overhaul that would include a pathway to citizenship for the nation’s 11 million immigrants who are in the country illegally. More than 40 leaders were taken into custody after they walked onto Independence Avenue and locked arms, chanting in Spanish “Si, se puede” – “Yes, we can.” Another, smaller group of activists were arrested later in the afternoon after they blocked the hallway outside the office of House Speaker

The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.

Congress´s top inquisitor subpoenaed the State Department on Thursday for documents detailing the inner workings of the independent board that probed the September attack in Benghazi, Libya. Republicans on the House Oversight panel have accused the Accountability Review Board (ARB) of seeking to protect former Secretary of State and possible 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in its investigation, notably by declining to interview her. Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said he subpoenaed the department because he was being stonewalled. “After ignoring requests for months, the State Department has left no alternative but to issue subpoenas for documents relevant to our investigation,”

A Syrian religious group have banned croissants because they symbolise western oppression. A Sharia committee issued a fatwa, or religious ruling, declaring croissants ‘haram’, which means they are forbidden in Islamic law. The group, which operates in a rebel-held area of Aleppo, said that they have ‘colonial’ significance. They claim that the pastry’s crescent shape celebrates European victory over Muslims, reported Al Arabiya. Islamis sharia committees have declared several strict fatwas in rebel-controlled areas of Syria.

In a dire assessment of the financial challenges facing the military, Mr. Hagel said the political stalemate between the White House and Congress over a comprehensive deal for taxes and spending has required the Defense Department to plan for a range of cuts, since a deal to lift

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

The correspondence suggests the discrimination of conservative groups extended beyond the IRS and into the FEC, where an attorney from the agency’s enforcement division in at least one case sought and received tax information about the status of a conservative group,

Sen. John McCain — a Democrat? There was confusion Wednesday after the Arizona Republican mistakenly strolled into President Obama’s meeting with Senate Democrats at the Capitol. The room full of Democrats — who happened to be meeting in the same room where the Senate GOP usually holds their weekly policy luncheons — erupted in applause and laughter as the former Republican presidential candidate made his entrance. As McCain, 76, walked out of the Dem-filled space, reporters pressed him as to why he stepped foot in the room.

If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But
