Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

Case closed

Congenital liar caught.

At a House Select Committee on Benghazi hearing Thursday, Rep. Jim Jordan introduced e-mails that show then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton calling the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya terrorism to family and the Egyptian prime minister.

Jordan then questioned why she told Americans the Benghazi attack was a response to an infamous YouTube clip mocking Muslims but e-mailed it was a terrorist attack to the Egyptian prime minister and family.

“You can tell the Egyptian prime minister it’s a terrorist attack, but you can’t tell your own people,” Jordan scolded Clinton.

She doesn’t WANT to tell “her own people.” The Egyptian prime minister isn’t going to do anything about removing her from power. Of course, neither are “her own people”; she’s “too big to fail.” Or to jail, apparently.

So whatcha gonna do now, Gowdy? You have the crooked bitch openly if indirectly admitting she lied, maintaining the most threadbare of connections to the lie–“I still believe to this day the video played a role“–so as to hopefully inoculate herself against criminal charges. You have her lying under oath about Blumenthal and his role in illegally disseminating classified information hither and yon. If it had been me doing all this, and the cops were the investigating authority, I’d be cooling my heels in a prison cell right now.

She didn’t “misspeak.” She didn’t make an honest mistake. She flouted the laws of this nation as regards national security and classified information–indisputably, with no margin for error or interpretation. She lied to the American people to manipulate an election–for partisan political purposes, as her supporters are so fond of complaining about. And she’s laughing up her sleeve at you right now, because she knows she still has a better than even-money chance at being president despite her high crimes and misdemeanors.

So just what, if anything, are you and the rest of the GOP clown act going to do about all that? I suspect we all already know the answer to that, but the question still must be asked. In the meantime, to understand the partisan cesspool in which Gowdy is treading water, glance over this squalid WaPo whitewash of Clinton’s misfeasance; it’s sickening, that’s what. A taste, sour though it is:

In the next round, Jordan returned to the line of questioning. It became a parsing of a statement Clinton had issued about the attack afterward, with Clinton and Jordan arguing about whether Clinton had blamed an anti-Islam video as the cause of the Benghazi attacks. Jordan became animated as he asked the questions, repeating and re-stating his case in fast bursts.

Clinton, on camera, smiled a small smile that indicated amused tolerance. Her answer was slow and utterly forgettable, which was the victory she wanted.

“The gentleman yields back,” Gowdy said, ending Jordan’s time.

And there you have it: a clear liar, accessory to and apologist for the terrorist murder of four Americans due directly to her and her administration’s arrogance and incompetence–victorious in the end, mumbling and muttering and dissembling her way out from under the arm of justice. Secure in the knowledge that neither she nor anyone else will ever be called to account beyond a few uncomfortable hours on CSPAN. The American government’s marrow-deep corruption wrapped around her like a warm, protective blanket, shielding her from any consequences at all for her outrageous lies.

She’s going to skate. They’re all going to skate. All the bullshit tough-talk from the GOP aside, they’re all going to skate for climbing up on the caskets of American heroes and lying to the faces of the families of the slain. For purely political purposes, nothing more.

  1. If she somehow is elected president, that will be it. I mean it’s essentially over now, maybe a Trump or Cruz might forestall the inevitable but we’re trending badly. Obama promised a fundamental transformation and it was the one thing he wasn’t lying about.

    Republican leadership(?) is non existent. They’ve sold us out completely. Conservatives have no representation in DC. Paul Ryan gets the HFC support???? Not only that, we’re the fucking crazy terrorists for wanting fiscal sanity and a strong military. They’ve got theirs and the rest of us can get fucked.

    We’re just about to the shooting part of this dance.
