Here’s What Congress Tweeted While Obama Was Asking For Their Support Against ISIS

While the president was busy gathering support for an attack on a group Republicans think is a threat to the United States homeland, Republican members of Congress were busy Tweeting about Benghazi. On the even of 9/11, they thought the already-debunked Benghazi “scandal” was more important: Tomorrow is also a painful anniversary for the families [...]

That took longer that I thought. After nearly two weeks of tensions in Ferguson, MO, far-right radio has finally shoehorned the crisis into its ongoing Benghazi and IRS narratives. I’m seriously shocked that it didn’t happen sooner, a sign that perhaps the screechers are feeling a little slow on the uptake given the outrage-boner they’ve [...]

According to Rush Limbaugh everything that happens anywhere is the fault of one person: Barack Obama. “But this is the Democrat Party, folks. The president of the United States is in charge of what’s happened here,” he said. “I think it is time for everybody to come to grips with a simple reality. I don’t [...]

Illinois Congresswomen Jan Schakowsky is the Ranking Member of the Intelligence Committee’s Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. She appeared on radio with me Monday night to talk about how the GOP-led committee exonerated the White House in any Benghazi wrongdoing. Among the findings of the committee: – Intelligence agencies were “warned about an increased threat [...]

Never mind that the Republican-led House Intelligence Committee cleared the White House on Benghazi. Of course, not many people know that because it’s barely been covered in the media. But, even if it had been, it wouldn’t stop right-wing monomania. A new trend among conservatives on Facebook is to change one’s middle name to “Benghazi,” [...]

The Republican-led House Intelligence Committee concluded there was no wrongdoing by the White House in the September, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. The panel voted Thursday to declassify the report, the result of two years of investigation by the committee. U.S. intelligence agencies [...]

Darrell Issa and his fellow Republicans seem upset and shocked that “petty fraud” is being fought by the Justice Department. “In essence, this is a government hit list!” declared Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.), in what could have been confused for a comment on drones. “Indefensible and irresponsible,” concluded Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.). “If you don’t [...]

Something has been missing from the latest round of calls for President Obama’s impeachment. It’s was barely mentioned in Sarah Palin’s red meat screed on the POTUS last week and seems to play little or no role in House Speaker John Boehner’s planned law suit. That something is Benghazi. That magical place in Libya where [...]

This, of course, doesn’t mean that the Obama administration did anything to help find, capture or kill anyone. It still means that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were off somewhere playing pool or something during the Benghazi attack. It still means that there have to be millions more taxpayer dollars spent investigating what happened the [...]

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is at it again, although he never really seems to stop. Stripped of his Benghazi blankie by the House select committee, and having already exhausted every other branch of the Scandalabra™, Issa is on to a brand new investigation that has the White House openly mocking him. The IRS scandal won’t [...]
