It's interesting what has not been at the forefront of the news in the weeks since the Ferguson incident in August and Obama's Executive Order that seizes for himself power the Executive Branch doesn't have -- all in order to provide what is tantamount to blanket amnesty to multimillions of illegal aliens.
Benghazi dropped out of sight. Or at least it is no longer front page news. I assume you heard that the House Intelligence Committee publicized its findings that nobody anywhere did anything wrong whatsoever in the debacle that took the lives of a U.S. Ambassador and his security detail. The committee wrote that it has found no intelligence failure prior to the attack and that no stand down order was issued. The report further found conflicting intelligence concerning the attack, which explains why there were contradictory statements issued by the Administration early on.
The mainstream media, however, failed to mention that the investigation conducted by the House Intelligence Committee is not one and the same with the the House Select Committee that was chosen for one task alone -- dig more deeply into Benghazi than any committee or task force has thus far. This special committee is chaired by U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy, S.C., and is far from completing its task.
Meanwhile, over in the Senate, immediately after the House Intel Committee announced its rather strange findings, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., went on the air on several networks stating that the committee's finding of "no wrongdoing" is nothing but "bull." Graham vowed that now that the Senate is slated to take over the chamber in January, he would work closely with Gowdy in conducting a real investigation, allowing the chips to fall where they may. Graham blasted the House Intel Committee, implying that it was nothing but a whitewash deal designed to continue the cover up. It is to be remembered that this committee is headed by Republicans who have had a majority in the House since 2010. It is also to be remembered that all along the way, I and many others have warned that there are some Republicans who walk in tandem with Obama and the Dems.
Another issue that got relegated to the back burner in the aftermath of Ferguson and the executive order on illegal immigrants is the tax burden that is getting ready to hit Americans as mandated by the new Obamacare law. Americans won't know what hit them. But they will be hit hard. And now to add insult to injury, citizens will not only be taxed for Obamacare but they will be required to foot the bill for illegal aliens who partake in Obamacare.
And this is not to mention the multithousands of new rules and regulations that will be unleashed upon the public in 2015, courtesy of the Obama Administration. The EPA alone will wreak havoc on the economy by continuing its frontal attack on the coal industry and other businesses and enterprises that are vulnerable to the targeting of extremists who wish to rob citizens of private property and property rights, all in the name of "addressing global warming."
These are just a few of the issues that have been jettisoned from public consumption as our attention has been directed elsewhere in the last two months.
