We all know the media basically shapes the majority of American‘s views of the world, the nation, the government, and social issues. We know “the pen is mightier than the sword”. Words can stir a frenzy or bring a calm. The Bible tells us they can set an entire forest ablaze! In other words, words can incite great anger and produce great emotion.
While we have heard much adieu about the IRS and the targeting of conservatives and people who belong to, or are for the Tea Party (my family fits in this bracket and my husband is an IRS agent; ironic isn’t it?), and while we have heard of the Trayvon Martin case, why have we NOT heard anymore about Benghazi?
Is not ALL life precious? Especially those who put their lives on the line and die to serve our country for our freedom, to maintain allies, and bring about peace if possible?
Whose bodies are in the draped coffins in the picture above? Those bodies COULD be your child or mine! Does the death of someone’s beloved child or loved one not matter?? Shouldn’t there be accountability for all murder and injustice? According to Hillary Clinton at the Congressional hearing concerning Benghazi and Chris Stevens’ death her reply was , “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?” Clinton asked the Republican Senator who was asking for details about Benghazi. “It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again.” Yet, what measures have been taken to do this?
Now we see Hillary Clinton being painted “friendly”, a luncheon being given in her “honor” and, here comes the hypnotic trance government wants to put you in. Guess who they are grooming for the next President of the United States of America? The one that says, “What difference does it make?” as she yells and pounds her fists on the table to questions of an Ambassador and his aides representing our country and our country’s well-being and why they were not given the protection they asked for and why they lie DEAD today!!!
If our children, husbands, wives, mothers, and fathers were killed today and someone from OUR government who is meant to serve and protect said, “What difference does it make?” just what would our reaction be? I do not believe it would be agreeing with the standpoint of “What difference does it make?”
While smoke was being pumped by media as to the IRS scandal, the Trayvon Martin trial, we were being lulled into an amnesia of another set of murders and the very person who could have prevented those murders is now being platformed as a leader that deserves to run the affairs of this country. Someone who allegedly has the protection and well-being of the citizens of this great country at heart! Don’t forget, if you are an American, the next President directly effects your future and mine!
According to newsmax.com there are eight Congressman who remember Benghazi. They remember our Ambassador Chris Stevens, along with another diplomat, Sean Smith and two U.S. security men. Their article reads as follows:
Eight Republican lawmakers have drafted a letter to new FBI Director James Comey, demanding that he expedite the probe of last September’s terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya that left four Americans dead.
“It has been more than 10 months since the attacks,” the lawmakers write in a draft letter obtained by CNN.
“We appear to be no closer to knowing who was responsible today than we were in the early weeks following the attack. This is simply unacceptable.”
According to CNN, the draft was produced by Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah and Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Other signers include Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin. In the House, Reps. Darrell Issa of California, Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, and Jim Jordan of Ohio, added their names.
Republican sources told CNN the letter was scheduled to be sent to Comey on Wednesday or Thursday.
“Rumors continue to swirl about the whereabouts of suspects involved in the attack,” the draft states. “The FBI continues to add pictures of potential assailants to its website and asks the Libyan people to assist with identifying the alleged perpetrators. We struggle to understand why we don’t know more about those who attacked two U.S. compounds and murdered four brave Americans.” SOURCE: newsmax.com
In Texas there was a battle where brave men were slaughtered at the Alamo in defense of this great land! When the Battle of San Jacinto was fought, the army of men who fought it ran forward yelling, “Remember the Alamo!” and “Remember Goliad!” and those words are remembered to this day! Justice came for those dead heroes that day! I tell you, remember Chris Stevens! Remember Benghazi!! Am I to wonder today, the ones who could have offered protection and sustained the life to our ambassador, are the very ones who are being pushed and promoted to hold the highest and most honorable office this nation knows??
You may say to me, “But no one knows for sure about Benghazi!” My question to you is, “WHY NOT???” We should care greatly to know that answer, and demand it! Please, never forget the principles of freedom, justice, and honor this country is built upon and the honorable men and women who died to secure it…including Chris Stevens!
Yes, Hillary Clinton, to many of us no matter what the party name, IT DOES MATTER!!
