What difference does it make if Hillary Clinton lied about Benghazi? It should make a lot of difference to the American people if they feel their politicians should be held to a higher level when it comes to telling the truth, like it used to be.
The problem came in when we had politicians like Bill Clinton, Richard Nixon and others who decided that telling the truth was no longer the way to go. Clinton for the most part has gotten away with it. Richard Nixon’s career was ended over it. And Nixon lied no less about things.
But the lying about things started a long time ago, the stigma about lying politicians didn’t go away till recently though. From the article I found a while back in the Daily Caller:
What difference does it make that Hillary lied about Benghazi?
Well, that depends. Does she want to be President of the United States?
Quite a lot of news about Benghazi today. First, Vince Coglianese reports:
As the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya raged on for more than seven hours, a team of U.S. special forces in Tripoli was blocked from flying in to attempt a rescue, according to a top American diplomat who was in the region.
In previously secret testimony given by Gregory Hicks — the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya — to congressional investigators last month, Hicks revealed two possible courses of action that could have saved American lives that night: allowing U.S. special forces to enter Benghazi and flying a fast-moving U.S. military aircraft over the scene of the attacks…
CBS News’ Sharyl Atkinson reported on the exchange that Monday afternoon, noting that “[n]o assistance arrived from the U.S. military outside of Libya during the hours that Americans were under attack.” The claim that U.S. forces were called off from their attempts to reach the besieged compounds is a direct contradiction of the Obama administration’s claim “that nobody was ever told to stand down and that all available resources were utilized,” Atkinson noted.
Remember, Ted Kennedy stayed in office till his death, even though a long time ago, he went out partying, and ended the night letting a young lady die in his car that he had driven off of a bridge into the water, getting out of the car and going home to go to bed. She died, he had no drivers licence, didn’t report it till the next morning, and didn’t even get a slap on the wrist over it. But, Tom Foley had an affair with a page in the halls of the Senate and it ended his career. The difference? Foley was a Republican, Kennedy was a Democrat. You think it’s more than that? I don’t.
We had President Bush, who did a lot of the things that we are accusing Obama of now, spending too much money, and yet, during the Bush Presidency, the media and everyone eventually thinks the economy was horrible during his presidency, yet, it wasn’t. But, during the Obama administration, the economy took a nose dive, yet, the media reported that the recession ended in 2010! It didn’t, and if the president had been a republican instead, the truth would have been told about the economy if it was as bad.
During the Bush administration the media, hollywood and all the liberal pundits constantly hit about the national debt. When Bush left office it was about 7 trillion. Granted, that was way to much. But now, Obama gets elected to his second term and the National debt is on its way to 17 trillion. NOTHING IS SAID about it in the media and Obama lies about how good the economy is doing.
Obama lied about how if we passed the stimulus, unemployment would never go above 7.5%. It did, yet nothing has been said….if he had been Bush, all hell would have broken loose.
Now, Hillary Clinton has been caught in a lie about what happened at Benghazi and the night that four Americans died, including our Ambassador Stevens. Nothing is happening to her on this, while the media and the democrats are rallying around her to protect her from this. Why? Because they need her for the Presidency in 2016. Are politicians held to a higher level anymore? Yes….but only if they are Republicans, and even then, the truthfulness isn’t what it should be most of the time.
Now, don’t get me wrong here. There are politicians in Washington who are telling the truth. My representative in Congress is one of them. He is one of the new grassroots tea party people who was elected to stop the rampant lying in government. And he is fighting against that. But we need to get more with conviction and determination to buck the system here. Because the system has become corrupt. We need more to tell the truth, and buck the media. Buck the new truth of telling lies. That is where we are now folks. The new truth is telling lies. Obama does it, Hillary does it, McCain does it, Lindsay Graham does it, Nancy Pelosi does it, Harry Reid does it. To tell the truth, almost every politician who has been there for 10 years or more, has gotten really good at doing it.
If something starts going in a way they do not like, they then get the media to start telling the storyline of something else happening. Preferably something that will hurt the Republicans.
Remember during the Boston Bombing thing, we had so many stories out there by the media, that we really cannot tell you what the truth really is, now can we? Only what the media and the politicians have told us. And when it comes to the stories, there were many of them. All supposedly the truth, yet the story that came out first, with “reliable sources” is now something that has been forgotten in the mess of lies and stories told. Remember the media coming out with the one “we can only hope that it turns out to be a white American who did this.” Then, suddenly there were “American” ties to this. I don’t know about you, but it will be a while before we really know the truth about this. After all the differing stories about what happened is sifted through the glass of time and it has finally been decided who really did this and why. And by then, the democrats will say, ‘it happened so long ago, what does it matter now?’ The media will follow along and suddenly, nothing more will be said about it.
What does it matter? I will tell you. This kind of story line is how the democrats keep winning. They will fight tooth and nail for what they want, having the media on their side all the way, so the truth doesn’t come out till it is too late. By then the mantra that ‘it happened so long ago’ will be used and we will all shrug our shoulders and agree….and go on with life, losing another bit of humanity in the process. Each time losing a little more of the goodness of telling the truth, and getting more of how good it is to manipulate the truth.
Folks, I am not talking about this from just hearsay and not knowing. I have watched this process now for 40 years or more. And the scary part is, we now have a president, who is catering to the class of people who will not do anything for a living, but live off of government handouts, and keeping illegals from being illegal. And with this growing base, he, after doing everything he can to destroy the economy of this country still has a 48% approval rating!!! Can you show me any republican president who would be able to get away with 1/4 of this bad stuff and have even a 5% approval rating? NO YOU CAN’T!
Of course, you can lie like normal and say you can, but it won’t happen. At least not yet. But, we keep going this route, and sooner or later, it will happen, and it will only take that eyeglass of time to really sort out the troubles we have here in America. It will always tell the truth. But by then, it will be too late.
America is now in the dung heap of a cesspool that we Traditional Americans are fighting to keep it out of, and yet, we are being labeled as terrorists and extremists because we want to save our country. But, history, will prove us right someday. Hopefully, that day will not be too late for America.
God Bless America
God Bless our Troops
God Bless us all……
