Well, the much publicized Benghazi hearings with Hillary as the star witness has just concluded with the usual fanfare of the media and the politics of the Democrats. Although several facts were revealed that conclusively linked Hillary to every aspect of the disaster and proved her to be the outright liar she was and is, we're not hearing a word about it. Quite the contrary, Hillary is played up to be the innocent victim of a Republican witch hunt!
Instead of focusing on the facts regarding the deaths of four innocent American heroes, the media and the Democrats focused on the politics of the hearings and the so called intent to destroy Hillary's campaign for the presidency. It was clear from the outset that the Democrats and the media could care less about the facts and the dead Americans. They were, in fact, concerned about Hillary and her "historic" campaign.
As I watched this fiasco unload, I remembered the Watergate hearings of the seventies. No comparisons! Despite differences of opinion on the Watergate committee, there were no shots taken at the Democrat dominated members by the Republican minority. They were just as interested in the truth as were the Democrats although for perhaps different reasons. Not so with the Benghazi Hillary-Crats! They were only interested in salvaging Hillary and nothing else. The rank minority member, Elijah Cummings made that clear from the outset. The only Democrat member that conducted herself with dignity was Illinois Representative Tammy Duckworth who concentrated her questions on the circumstances that led to the attack and the actions taken to rescue them. Hats off to Tammy!
Representative Jim Jordan confronted Hillary with several emails with showed outright how she had lied and yet she continued to lie. The same with Trey Gowdy, Mike Pompeo, Susan Brooks, and Peter Roskam as well as Lynn Westmoreland and Martha Roby. In every case, she continued to lie and then was reinforced by a Democrat on the committee.
The media wet its pants with joy over her performance despite all the facts that came out during the hearings. They could care less. The smartest woman alive had slain the giant women hating Republicans [Despite the presence of three women on the panel!] and was just an inauguration away from the presidency. No highlights would be shown of anything but things that produce an image of a victim or a victor for Hillary.
Yes, by the media's standards Hillary is the winner but how about the losers? The losers are the American people, the Benghazi committee, but most important, the four dead Americans! The Media, the Democrats, and Hillary can dance a jig for their clever deception of the public and no doubt win for now. However, sooner or later the truth will win out but where will we be as a nation? Perhaps Baltimore or Ferguson can provide the answer!
