Now that we know that the Benghazi cover-up was planned…
…do you think maybe we can criticize the President without being called racist conspiracy mongers?
I know, I know. I kid!
Lookit: Obama, Clinton, et al., found a fall guy and allowed him to be arrested and imprisoned for a year — essentially putting a lifetime target on his back — knowing full well that he had no part in what took place in Benghazi.
We know now that the press deliberately covered up for the President and this administration, with few exceptions (one of whom is now under withering attack despite a long career of equal opportunity investigative reporting), and so were complicit in this outrage of undeserved imprisonment, particularly those who were enough in the loop to know the story being peddled was outright bullshit. There is no nuance to it; there are no shades of gray. The whole thing was a baldly political attempt to cover for gross incompetency and failures of policy. And scapegoats were created to aid in that effort.
An ambassador was killed. 2 SEALS died rescuing whomever they could from a consulate left unguarded. The military was told to stand down. Hillary Clinton and the President stood before flag-draped coffins and lied right to our faces. Tax payer money was spent on a campaign apologizing for a video that played no part in the Benghazi attacks, money spent by those who knew they were perpetrating a fraud. Then later, some CIA flunky agreed to fall on his sword and take blame for talking points that we now know were orchestrated from the get go to protect Obama during a re-election campaign.
So despicable is all this that the fact that the national news is not abuzz with the (now racist) word “impeachment” is itself an unmitigated outrage.
I don’t recognize this country. But I can tell you this: I’m not alone. And I think even some of the more “pragmatic” GOP fluffers are starting to recognize that the fix is in, has long been in, and that we have little recourse left us short of some kind of dramatic challenge to a federal government that no longer represents us — nor even pretends to, in many cases.
In fact, it has declared war on us. And no, party doesn’t matter. It’s the ruling class vs. the rest of us. And but for a brief blip in history when the US was founded, in has always been thus.
— None of which means we have to take it. The question is, will we…?
