Wasn't the policy question related to Benghazi 'why did the USA have an embassy in a country (area),  that was unstable (basically still having a civil war)?

 

I believe Clinton made a wrong decision by not closing the embassy,  but hey,  Secretaries of State make wrong decisions, since they are human beings  (that doesn't mean there was something nefarious going on, which is what a partisan typically implies in these situations).     

 

So,  I'm all for Congress finding out why US Troops were in Ni-gher as long as it doesn't become a media skeptical of ending partisan finger-pointing. 

I'm not aware of any "policy question" re: why we had an embassy in Libya.  In fact never heard this before.   Actually Benghazi was a consulate and the embassy is in Tripoli.  The question was why the ambassador was in Benghazi at a facility without more security.

We have or have had embassies in many countries that were involved in civil wars.  Iraq until very recently and Afghanistan at present for two. Iraq will likely return to a civil war within the next 12-24 months and we will not close the embassy.  We had an embassy in South Vietnam until almost too late.

a tree is known by it's fruit. God does not require human intellectual comprehension to be deaf and dumb either.

 

the bible speaks of judgment more in the context of spiritual condemnation not on reasonable assumptions made by others based on an individual's own words. :)

Well, then you may recall that other biblical story, where Jesus told the crowd stoning the prostitute, "He who has no sin.....".

1990s color horror flick about a New York Real Estate Mogul who goes bankrupt, turning into an orange monster every time the New York Stock Exchange Bell rings closing at 4:30 pm.

Until the stock exchange opens the next morning, he mysteriously stalks women in the city trying to grab 'em by the*****, but gets away after implicating inner-city youth in Central Park.

But one night he meets his match...

It's frightening to see how many have sold their souls to that demigod.  Young congressman Sean Duffy from Wisconsin is one such person who since discovering that his district is pure Trump has become one of his biggest defenders against the Russian probe.  I hope things come home to roost for all those who have sold out their country for a grab at power.

Liberals Will Protest Anniversary Of Trump’s Election By Throwing An Actual Temper Tantrum http://us-dpt.com/tx3T6y

Yelling at the sky won't change the election results. It will just make them look weird. People will be less susceptible to listening to their grievances.

The headline says "Liberals" instead of "a very small group of attention-seeking d-bags", which would be more accurate. But one can't pass up an opportunity to paint with a broad brush.

The First FBI Crime Report Issued Under Trump Is Missing A Ton Of Info

" the Crime in the United States report, a collection of crime statistics gathered from over 18,000 law-enforcement agencies in cities around the country. But according to an analysis by FiveThirtyEight, the 2016 Crime in the United States report — the first released under President Trump’s administration — contains close to 70 percent fewer data tables1 than the 2015 version did, a removal that could affect analysts’ understanding of crime trends in the country. The removal comes after consecutive years in which violent crime rose nationally, and it limits access to high-quality crime data that could help inform solutions. ......

... Although the removal of the tables makes it more difficult to get information on one of the White House’s most prominent causes, it also seems like part of a trend in the Trump administration: the suppression of government data and an unwillingness to share information with the press and public. .........

Roger Stone is suspended from Twitter-

"Roger Stone, a longtime associate of President Donald Trump and self-described political provocateur, was suspended from Twitter on Saturday.

Stone lashed out at CNN anchor Don Lemon and others on Friday night, seemingly responding to reports that an indictment from special prosecutor Robert Mueller was imminent in the ongoing probe into the Trump election campaign's alleged ties to Russia.

 

Stone tweeted that Lemon was "dumber than dog ----" and deserved to be mocked and punished.

Stone did not respond to a request for comment.

A Twitter spokesperson highlighted the social media site's policies against harassment and abuse, and incitement for others to harass..........

This plaque testifies to the fact that:

 

 trump is a credit to his class,

a credit to his race,

a credit to his sex 

 

--and most of all--

 

a great role model for the youth of America.

Hah! The biggest and dumbest "kid" in the room!

They probably won't last long. They look to be too well educated and astute to serve his purpose.
He'll have to seek an even less perceptive tier for his next group.

 

I never thought I'd ever say this, but as we continue in our downward spiral while "circling the drain" we now have a president that makes even G.W. Bush appear to be a genius!
