The congressional hearings on May 8 may become the beginning of the end for Hillary Rodham Clinton.  Three credible eye witnesses of our Benghazi consulate assault last September 11, finally got to give their accounting of it.  They had been kept from the FBI, all committees of Congress, media and anyone else in the world.  It was through the Whistle- Blower Program that they came to tell the real story.

As expected, when the assault began, one of them called Secretary of State Clinton and alerted her to the attack.  She promised to get back to him. Then one of them called the White House asking for immediate help.  The whistleblowers organized a small group of marines and security personnel at the Tripoli Embassy to fly to Benghazi and fight the identified terrorists and rescue our people at the consulate.

As they approached the waiting C-130 airplane, they were told to “stand down” (you can’t go).  One thing is clear:  Secretary Clinton and all at the White House immediately knew that terrorists had struck our Benghazi consulate.  The president of Libya soon announced to the Tripoli Embassy that Ambassador Stevens was dead.  That, too, was immediately reported to the State Department.  American personnel were under attack and the White House and State Department were giving them up for slaughter.

To begin their cover up, they began to blame the action on a protest about some You Tube Video.  The protest was in Cairo, Egypt but never came to Libya.  Our White House including President Obama and the State Department including Hillary Clinton knowingly lied to America.  As a result of betraying our personnel at the consulate, four State Department officials including Ambassador Stevens were murdered.  An untold number of personnel were wounded.  We still don’t know the names of all the wounded because they are keeping us from that portion of the truth.

At the ceremony to receive the dead bodies at Andrews Air Force Base, both President Obama and Secretary Clinton were still telling the Big Lie.  Secretary Clinton even looked one of the grieving parents in the eye and said “We are going to prosecute the producer of the film.”  Did she think the truth would never be told?  They didn’t send the FBI to investigate for 18 days, causing much disturbance of the crime scene.  They didn’t want to know any more about this attack.  The wounded were put into hiding.  They even misnamed them as they entered into hospitals for treatment.

This reminds us of the past Clinton years in the White House.  The White Water scandal lingered on as Hillary became a master of stalling and giving out disinformation.  The Travelgate scandal, which happened as they were entering the White House, shocked us all.  They just arrived and they started rigging procurement opportunities.  As she was leaving the White House Hillary stole the official china, which was so tacky. This is Hillary alone.  Her teacher, President Bill Clinton, taught her well.  He was the master of disinformation.

Remember the Paula Jones Scandal?  How about the affair with Jennifer Flowers that caused Hillary to claim it was a “Bimbo Eruption”?  There were other claims of President Clinton’s adulterous past which he denied each time. He would meet his demise when 19-year-old Monica Lewinsky, a White House intern, would start doing freaky things with Bill inside the Oval Office.  When it was exposed, Clinton pointed fingers at the press and again denied everything.  He still would be denying it if the investigators had not found his DNA (semen) on one of her dresses.

For the above, President Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives (later pardoned by the Senate) and his law license was suspended.  President Clinton became only the second president to be impeached (Andrew Johnson was first).  In a fashion similar to Hillary’s denial of terrorist activity, President Clinton made a terrible decision.  The rogue nation of Sudan alerted the White House that they had Osama bin Laden under surveillance and could turn him over to them.  They refused to accept him.  Later, bin Laden would bomb our two embassies in Kenya and Tanzania – hundreds were murdered.  It could have been prevented.

So this Benghazi scandal has evolved from the partnership of the Clintons and President Obama.  It brings a better understanding of the trickery within the Affordable Care Act, a/k/a Obamacare.  Each week we find another hidden tax in it. There is $50 billion here, $100 billion there, and it starts adding up to a big financial “train wreck.”  We should have never passed a bill that no one actually read.  The sponsors should not have been trusted.
