We don’t discuss Benghazi nor emails much. Why? Because whether you believe Benghazi and Hillary’s emails are the most important issue in the world or you think these are partisan political attacks and nothing more, the bottom line analysis for us that they will not determine the 2016 presidential elections. We’ve written about and will continue to discuss what will determine the 2016 presidential elections and what will indeed destroy Hillary Clinton as well as Trump’s spectacular rise and JeBush’s spectacular fall. We’ll do so again today. But first a brief break to discuss Benghazi and emails.
We’ve written about Benghazi and emails and such when they happened so we’re not going to waste too much time today on these matters. But we will summarize our analysis of the entire situation. Years ago, before Hillary Clinton testified before another congressional committee on the Benghazi mess we wrote that only a special committee of very few congresspersons with a past as experienced prosecutors could unravel this knot. We stated that a strict search for the truth and nothing but the truth would suffice. We also predicted the Issa chaired hearing would fail. Not much really changed from then. Yes, a special committee was appointed (and recently undermined by other Republicans who declared it to be a partisan witch hunt against Hillary Clinton). But instead of focusing on the central and most important issue related to Benghazi the special committee when off chasing geese in deep woods. In the end, both committees failed to get the truth of what happened in Benghazi.
Since the deaths of an American ambassador in Benghazi we stated that Benghazi was not a silly issue to be swept away. This is what we wrote in May 2013:
Uncovering the truth about what happened in Benghazi on September 11 is important because even if Big Media and Obama Dimocrats don’t think it is important – the terrorist killers of Americans in Benghazi know the truth and they are emboldened when our political system denies the truth.
What contempt for the American way of government these terrorist killers must have as they witness the lies and corruption that our political system cannot uncover, or rather, works like sleepless rust to keep covered.
These terrorist killers must laugh at American power and American “justice” as they see the apparatus of the “government of the people, government by the people, government for the people” protect them and shift the blame for terrorist murders of American officials on an American who exercised his rights and produced a Youtube video Innocence of Muslims. That American is now in prison even as the friend of Boston terrorist killer Tdouchebag Tsarnaev is free on bail.
That entire article is worth a read if you want our complete analysis of Benghazi because it pretty much answers every question we are constantly asked to comment on.
A quick summary of Benghazi from our point of view:
(1) The only question that matters is “What moron idiot too stupid or too corrupt to be president does not prepare for a terrorist attack on America on September 11?” In that one question, easy for every American to understand the Benghazi attack is made relevant.
(2) Answer question #1.
That’s it. That is the entire Benghazi scandal in a nutshell. If Hillary is the moron idiot who did not prepare for possible attacks against American installations, particularly one in a frazzled Libya, then she is too stupid to be president. Or, if it was Barack Obama just before his reelection who in order to maintain the illusion of a nonexistent peace with the Muslim world did not issue orders or prevented the issuance of orders for a world-wide alert at all American embassies, consulates, military installations, and other offices of the American government or American institutions, then Barack Obama is not fit to be president.
“September 11” is the beginning and end of the Benghazi investigation. If a congressional committee cannot get an answer as to why there was not a world-wide alert, let alone an alert for extra precautions in Benghazi Libya, then we expect, and get, only failure and clowns.
Our final observations on Benghazi and Hillary are simple. No committee of the congress is going to be able to outsmart Hillary Clinton. She is too smart. She was a lawyer who went to court to defend clients as well as corporate entities. She is too smart to be caught. For this latest committee hearing Hillary spent seven days in preparation knowing from certain committee members what evidence and questions would be thrown at her. The notion or expectation that in the cumbersome committee process somehow this latest Benghazi committee would somehow imitate the fictitious and phony Perry Mason antics was a delusion.
What do we think happened in Benghazi? We wrote at the end of our 2013 article cited above:
Our operating theory is that Benghazi was a CIA operation in a State Department compound for who knows what. Possibly an Iran/contra type operation to get munitions and supplies to Syrian “rebels” is what was going on. Maybe it was about Chad, who knows? That’s what we need an thorough investigation for.
Again, we stick by that belief. We’ll add that maybe it was the very people we armed and helped who also attacked the installation in Benghazi (“Ansar al-Sharia is claiming responsibility.” It’s interesting; Mr. Khattala, one of the guys arrested in charge actually belonged to that group.“) The embarrassment over that fact might be what aided the cover-up of the truth. But in the end it was Obama and the Obama presidential campaign that caused the Benghazi attack to succeed because Barack Obama did not issue a world-wide alert for special security and precautions on September 11.
Of course, the most important thing we have written, the most relevant observation about Benghazi is the one the fewest seem able to digest. And happily, it is at the center of the 2016 presidential campaign.
What the mopes in Congress, what most Republicans, what most Democrats, what most overall can’t seem to understand in their bones – yes, they will accept it at times intellectually – but then they forget because it is not in their bones, is the way to destroy Hillary2016. We’ve written about it so often. Yet, the lesson is constantly forgotten.
Benghazi will not destroy Hillary2016. “Scandals” will not stop Hillary2016 (and if you don’t believe us read what anti-Hillary Jay Cost has to say on this repeatedly failed tactic.)
The Obama goons want Hillary to be the Obama third term and any deviation (as Joe Biden declared) will be forcefully attacked. The sensible rest of the country does not want an Obama third term. Therein lies the trick. Attach Hillary to Obama and Hillary2016 is dead as a door nail.
Attach Hillary to Obama and Hillary2016 is dead as a door nail is a concept Hillary Clinton herself either does not seem to understand, or, is unable to get around. At the first and hopefully last debate (there is another debate scheduled for November but now that the electrifying Lincoln Chaffee and the mesmerizing Jim Webb have pulled out, is there any reason to go on with more debates?) Hillary Clinton managed to tie herself tightly to Barack Obama. After Biden’s threats with Obama at his side it increasingly appears that Hillary will run a disastrous third term strategy.
The third term strategy will prove to be a disaster. To prove our case let’s bring our first witness, Mr. Donald J. Trump.
Recently Donald J. Trump declared that President George W. Bush was the president when the World Trade Center went down. Donald J. Trump did not state that President George W. Bush was responsible for the attack but the “Buck Stops Here” responsibility argument had bite. Immediately Jeb! responded. It was a trap Jeb! fell into.
Recall, the reason why the Jeb! campaign is not the Bush! campaign is because Jeb! did not want to run as the third George W. Bush. Jeb! shaved the “Bush”.
Donald J. Trump with his wily trap forced Jeb! to become Bush! JeBush is the third Bush term. To see how devastating this Trump attack has been look at Jake Tapper’s interview with JeBush:
Jeb! asks why Trump “keeps bringing this up?” Jeb! does not see how Trump is turning Jeb! into JeBush!
As Jake Tapper asked, ‘If Bush isn’t responsible for 9/11 then can Hillary be responsible for Benghazi?’
Trump ties Jeb! to Bush! and he will tie Hillary! to Obama! That’s a chess master at work.
Endgame. Trump closed his trap on JeBush with the release of his own prescient remarks about the World Trade Center attack and Bin Laden from as early as 1999. Now the JeBush campaign is in deep trouble, political and financial.
