A "tangled web" is a good name for the confluence of lies and deceit advanced by this administration regarding the attack on Benghazi, when four brave Americans lost their lives while our President and Secretary of State looked on and did nothing Well, I take that back. I think the President DID do something, I think he ordered it. He commanded that nothing be done to help them, thereby sealing their fate. Trey Gowdy is set to head up a special committee to look into this fiasco, because this administration has illegally and despicably stonewalled at every turn when asked for answers. I really like Gowdy, because he's not afraid to speak the truth, unlike many mealy-mouthed Republicans in Congress. I just hope he's careful, because I wouldn't put anything past this president and his minions. I think they will do just about anything to make sure the American people never know the truth about what happened that night. Unfortunately, there is an element in America who will continue to support this man no matter what they're told. Unbelievable.
***George Will predicts Obamacare's doom. That's the way it should be, but as my friend Jim Sondergeld says, how do you hold a lawless regime accountable to the law? We simply have to take the Senate back in November, and increase our numbers in the House. That's the only way we're going to get to the bottom of Benghazi, and the only way we're going to get some semblance of order back in Washington.
Two years ago, when the Supreme Court declared Obamacare's penalty to be a tax, it "doomed" the healthcare reform act as an "unconstitutional violation of the origination clause," columnist George Will says.
This Thursday, the Washington, D.C., Court of Appeals, the nation's second-most important court, will hear arguments on whether the Affordable Care Act adheres to the Constitution's "origination clause," which declares that "all bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other bills," Will writes in his column in The Washington Post Saturday.
