BenghaziGate: Keeping One’s Eye On The Ball

By Elias Alias

-

The Secretary of State is “invited” to testify?  How handsomely respectful.

“Closed” hearings? How protectively beneficial – but what are they wanting to protect?

Here is an announcement on Fox News’ website, with some paragraphs from the article, found <here>

The House Foreign Affairs Committee has scheduled an open hearing for next Thursday on the Libya terror attack and has invited Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to testify, Fox News has learned.

The committee joins two others planning to hold hearings, albeit closed ones, that day…

The House Intelligence Committee will hold its closed hearing on the attack on Nov. 15, Fox News has learned. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA Director David Petraeus and Matt Olsen, director of the National Counterterrorism Center, are expected to testify.

The Senate Intelligence Committee plans to meet the same day to discuss the Libya attack — that hearing will also be closed to the public.

(end quoted passages from above-linked article at Fox News)

It is up to the American people to take a deep breath, step back a step or two, stand up tall and demand an end to this insane secrecy which the criminals in Washington D. C. insist is government’s God-given right.

The Iran-Contra-Mena hearings prevented Representative Jack Brooks of Texas from exposing the fact of the shadow government, the “Continuity of Government (COG)” which Oliver North and others at the NSC and FEMA were cooking up. At the same time, those hearings, headed up by none other than John Kerry, (the same damage-control specialist who would later dilute rhetorically the results of the Senate investigation into BCCI), uncovered deliberate involvement by the CIA in international drug smuggling, including smuggling tons of illegal drugs into the United States.

We either have a representative government or we do not. If it is the proper government of ‘We The People’ this government owes the people the unvarnished truth. If “the consent of the governed” is necessary for legitimacy, then the people must know to what they are giving – or from what they are withholding – their consent. I submit that the only reason for secrecy, ever, is to betray the truth by denying truth to those who have a right to it.

I am in agreement with Glenn Beck in suggesting that a significant part of that truth is that the CIA has been arming terrorists, including al Qaeda, and that the lying rats in the media and on the Hill are pulling every trick in the book to keep the questions which surround BenghaziGate from pointing to that fact. And yes, Fox News is helping cover-up that fact.

I watched the one-hour Fox News special on Benghazi and not once did Fox News ask why the gentleman from Turkey was meeting with our Ambassador to Libya prior to the attack. No mention was made about the Muslim Brotherhood working in Turkey and Libya to designate the recipient of the arms going from Benghazi to Syrian rebels through Turkey. Fox News merely did a great job of unearthing who knew what, and when, as the attack unfolded. They did a good job, but they overlooked the mammoth reality suggested by the two ex-Navy SEALs who were allegedly in Libya to recover armaments which fell into rebel hands during last year’s revolution. The fact that Fox news will not discuss that one little problem speaks volumes.

It is bad enough that Petraeus allegedly violated his marriage vow, which of course indicates that he is only human after all, but which also indicates that he could violate his Oath to the Constitution as easily as he would violate his vow to his wife. That vow and that Oath are both sacred obligations, and a man with a character flaw which would succumb to the temptation to violate either would just as easily, if tempted strongly, violate the other.

It’s bad enough that the sex scandal itself is spreading and is now taking down yet another General in a position of extreme power, and that we have to learn through this scandal that our high-level “Brass” has need of “entertainment” as part of the perks of leadership in the military.

It’s bad enough that a biographer and “entertainer” let a cat fight sparked of female jealousy reveal to the FBI that severe security threats exist at the highest levels of military command.

It is bad enough that the White House lied to the American people and to the world.

But what is worse, what is so bad that every single player in this explosive scandal is willing to disgrace himself or herself in order to cover for it, is that it is now known that U.S. foreign policy involves arming terrorists groups including al Qaeda – and that the whole power structure representing the arms industry, the Defense contracting community, and what President Eisenhower loathed as the “military-industrial complex”, is hell-bent on denying it.

That is what is really bad.

The Warren Commission, for secret reasons, sealed its report about the assassination of President Kennedy initially for seventy-five years. (1) Why? Was the corruption which that commission had to hide so unspeakably and hideously ugly that it would have caused a revolution if the American people knew it? Was it to hide the fact that certain elements within the FBI and the CIA, and individuals such as G. H. W. Bush and Lyndon B. Johnson, were intimately or proximately involved in that assassination?  Many reading here will yet be alive when that ban on the truth is lifted and the whole world will know what official secrecy has withheld from a nation who lost a President to a brutal public assassination.

But when will the hidden truth of these upcoming secret hearings on BenghaziGate be allowed into the knowledge of the American people? Why are they to be held in secret anyway? After all, is this secrecy a matter of “national security”, or one of “government security”? Would it bring down U.S. policy if the American people discover that the CIA and other elements within our government create our enemies, fund and arm our enemies, orchestrate our wars to keep a steady demand on the arms industry, which floats the Wall Street bubble and props up a false, plastic lifestyle based on consumption and perpetual war for perpetual peace?

Whence cometh this sort of question? Would our government deceive the American people? Has it ever deceived the American people? If this government has deceived the American people in the past, how can we know it is not deceiving us here in the present, when the damned government claims some presumed right to deny us access to hearings on the events surrounding an attack on a U.S. Ambassador in Benghazi? Have you read the Report from Iron Mountain lately? (2)

Notes:

1) From here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warren_Commission

In November 1964, two months after the publication of its 888-page report, the Commission published twenty-six volumes of supporting documents, including the testimony or depositions of 552 witnesses and more than 3,100 exhibits.[11] All of the commission’s records were then transferred on November 23 to the National Archives. The unpublished portion of those records was initially sealed for 75 years (to 2039) under a general National Archives policy that applied to all federal investigations by the executive branch of government,[12] a period “intended to serve as protection for innocent persons who could otherwise be damaged because of their relationship with participants in the case.”[13] The 75-year rule no longer exists, supplanted by the Freedom of Information Act of 1966 and the JFK Records Act of 1992. By 1992, 98 percent of the Warren Commission records had been released to the public.[14] Six years later, at the conclusion of the Assassination Records Review Board’s work, all Warren Commission records, except those records that contained tax return information, were available to the public with redactions.[15] The remaining Kennedy assassination related documents are scheduled to be released to the public by 2017, twenty-five years after the passage of the JFK Records Act.

    Additional sentiment from Russ Limbaugh:

    http://www.wnd.com/2012/11/limbaugh-no-bombshell-coming-from-petraeus/

    Quoting from above link:

    On Sept. 13, Petraeus testified to Congress about the 9/11 attack in Benghazi, going along with original claims by President Obama and his aides that the violence erupted in reaction to an anti-Muslim video. The onslaught killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

    Since then, administration officials have said it was a terrorist attack designed specifically for the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attack on New York and Washington, D.C.

    “If Petraeus goes in there and says anything different than what he said on September 13th, do you know the world of hurt that he’s in?” said Limbaugh.

    “He’s going to the get the question, ‘Were you lying then or were you lying now?’ … ‘Are we to believe you now, or are we to believe you then?’”

    ….Limbaugh concluded: “There is not gonna be one kernel of truth of what happened at Benghazi come out of any of this. It ain’t going to happen. I mean within two weeks of Obama being re-elected, you think they’re going to open the doors and the floodgates for people to go in and get to Obama? It isn’t gonna happen. … You have to understand what’s going on here, folks. There is a circle-the wagon operation around Barack Obama that nobody’s gonna penetrate. That is abundantly clear.”

    Treason ignored is abetting treason.

    “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” Abraham Lincoln

    “Under the American Constitution a new structure of government was established on a much higher plane than either the parliamentary system or the confederation of states. It was a people’s constitutional republic, where a certain amount of power was delegated to the states and a certain amount was delegated to the national government. There was a small dimension of power which they shared jointly. All other power was retained by the people. It is the delegation by the people of certain powers to the states and certain powers to the national government which we call ‘dual federalism.’” W. Cleon Skousen, “The Making of America”

    “A constitution is not the act of a government, but of a people constituting a government; and government without a constitution is power without a right. All power exercised over a nation, must have some beginning. It must be either delegated, or assumed. There are not other sources. All delegated power is trust, and all assumed power is usurpation. Time does not alter the nature and quality of either.” Thomas Paine

    ”We, the people, are the rightful masters of both congress and the courts – not to overthrow the constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution” Abe Lincoln

    Title 18 US code section 2381 – Treason: Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

    18 USC § 2382 – Misprision of treason
    Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States and having knowledge of the commission of any treason against them, conceals and does not, as soon as may be, disclose and make known the same to the President or to some judge of the United States, or to the governor or to some judge or justice of a particular State, is guilty of misprision of treason and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than seven years, or both.
    (This one is describing us, we KNOW it is treason, and are letting it go on. We kknew Bush committed treason, war crimes, murder, etc. Now we are letting it happen again)

    18 USC § 2384 – Seditious conspiracy
    If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.(This applies to Agenda 21, Obama, Panetta, Dempsey giving authority over the USA to the UN – on video in the Senate (in front of them – and they did nothing, making them treasonous scum also).

    18 USC § 2385 – Advocating overthrow of Government
    Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or
    Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or
    Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof—
    Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
    If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
    As used in this section, the terms “organizes” and “organize”, with respect to any society, group, or assembly of persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes, and other units of such society, group, or assembly of persons.
    (This pplies to both Bush’s, both Clinton’s, and Obama and all of their adminstrations who did nothing to stop this. All who are still alive need tobe arrested and prosecuted as OUR Oath demands US to protect and defend the US Constitution from these scum).

    I just started a petition on the White House petitions site, We the People. Will you sign it? http://wh.gov/XB5b

    We Can Immediately Fire and Replace Any Constitutional Oath Taker That Doesn’t Keep the Legally Binding Oath as Required has been published! Though limited in words (due to the site), it also does not preclude us from filing criminal or civil charges – or both if applies after they are fired. Most have forgotten that the Oath is their accountability to “We the People”.

    People in 50 states have petitioned to seceed from the USA because of all the criminal actions taken, and all the deliberate destruction of our country from within. Yesterday at 5:30 am there was 569,245 signatures even though this actions by people has been kept relatively quiet.

    These developments with Petreas and the women, and more generals etc, is disheartening to say the least. My first job at age 18 was at the Bureau of Naval Personnel, Arlington, Va. We were so proud of our country and our military. I am stunned at how far we’ve fallen as a nation. We heard of people this election who couldn’t decide which man to vote for, for President and worse yet had no idea they were casting a vote for socialism in a vote for Obama.

    Shorty Dawkins Says:

    It has been said many times that nothing good comes from secrecy. Secret plots are hatched. The truth is buried under the label of ‘National Security’. It is we the people who must demand accountability. We must demand that the truth be told, not just about Benghazi, but about all government actions. Our failure to make these demands is abetting the descent into tyranny.
    The American Empire is teetering on the edge of collapse. May it rest in peace. From its ashes, hopefully, we can create an open, honest nation that has no desire to rule the world, and that treats its citizens with respect, rather than suspicion. The American people, by and large, are good people. I pray they will open their eyes to what the secret cabal is doing to this country and its people.

    Stan Says:

    Cal,
    Thank you for your info about treason. And speaking of “the overthrow of Government,” and “(t)reason ignored is abetting treason”:

    The man who calls himself Barack Hussein Obama is illegal, according to the Constitution. (He may even be an illegal alien, for all we know.) By being ineligible to hold that thus-dishonored office, he has dragged it down into the gutter, and the rule of law has similarly been disposed of. He is acting like an emperor; and the American people are, by and large, following suit, as it were, by acting like he has a marvelous set of new clothes on.

    So where is the MSM outrage? Where is the refusal of the Republican Party to go along with this corrupt charade?? I’ll tell you about the latter: it is in the crapper. The Republican Party obviously did a deal with their counterparts in the Democrat Party, to say ‘we won’t say anything about this NBC business if you don’t say anything about it when we put candidates of our own up for Pres or VP who don’t qualify.1 A little nudge nudge, wink wink, and the American people won’t know the difference between an eligible candidate and an ineligible one; or won’t care, with their limited attention span if we just let it die off their simpleton screens.’ Well, I’ve got news for you, boyos. This American citizen knows the difference; and so do a lot of others. And we’re not going to be put off by orchestrated attempts at ridicule about ‘birthers’; a tactic straight out of Saul Alinsky’s revolutionary handbook ‘Rules for Radicals’. We aren’t going away. We are Americans; citizens of the American Republic. You handmaidens of an incipient American Empire can go to hell. And take your illegal office occupier with you; mesmeric Mr. Usurper in Chief.

    The man is not fit for command anyway. He left those four Americans in Benghazi twisting in the wind. And if he wasn’t directly responsible for issuing the stand-down order for their rescue, nevertheless the buck stops at his desk. So he has doubly defiled the office. Plus dishonoring it by administering a kill list. Just like Hitler and Stalin…the list of his ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ goes on…

    He must go. Must stand down; or be stood down. Period.

    And the latter scenario is where you Oathkeepers particularly come in. You are important to the working-out of the former option. But you are crucial to the latter. Are you up to the job at hand??2

    Time is short. Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country.

    For if not now, when??

    Time, for a march on Washington of The People, Assembled – led by Oathkeepers, and closely followed by Article Twoers and Tenth Amendmenters and Second Amendmenters and Tea Partiers and those Occupy Movement people who understand what is really going down from the Elite People Controllers, and those unaffiliated members of The People who are mad as hell and not going to take it anymore – to stay there, in nonviolent civil disobedience, gathered for a redress of their grievances (with their ranks rotated as individuals need to return to their ‘civilian’ lives), until the Usurper vacates the office (under the pressure of signs saying, simply, We Go When You Go); also there to dissolve their Congress – for not doing its constitutional duty to keep an eye on a rogue Executive (and being an accessory to and after the fact of the usurpation that has taken place) – and to appoint an Officer OF The People (Art. II, Sect. 1), who will oversee an orderly transition of power back to the rule of law in the nation, i.e, its Constitution. Which has been dragged in the dirt long enough.

    footnotes:

    1) Both political parties (mostly the Democrats) tried eight times between 2003 and 2008 to start a constitutional amending process going through Congress on this very issue, of the NBC requirement for the presidency. They failed even to get it out of committee each time. So obviously, they got together and – with their control of the MSM between them – decided to do an end-around of the Constitution, and The People; brazenly arrogating to themselves the power to pull the heist off.
    Will they get away with their daylighti-robbery crime? It remains yet to be seen.
    And P.S. on this note: the Republicans are already gearing up to put some candidates forward for either office who are likewise not eligible. If they get away with it: that’s it. That’s all she wrote. And the U.S.S. Constitution sinks ignominiously to the bottom of the sea of corruption. Whereas now, she is still afloat. Limping. But not hulled. Still capable of being put back in action. By a crew good and true.

    2) I say ‘you’ because, although I served for two years in the Army, I did not see active duty. (Was a c.o., with a tour of duty in Korea, post-uneasy Armistice.) And so I don’t consider myself as fully qualifying for the the term ‘Veteran’ as it is normally understood.
    But I’ll show up for duty; all 78-year’s young of me. Itching for action. As it were.
