Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi Releases New Report June 30, 2016

Editors Note: A phone call away. Then 13 hours.





From our friend Roger Aronoff  of Accuracy in Media and from The Citizens Committee on Benghazi:

The House Select Committee on Benghazi has issued a major, 800-plus page report detailing the events behind the attacks in Benghazi, Libya. No words can fully describe the tragedy that took the lives of four brave Americans. However, the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi (CCB) and Accuracy in Media (AIM) are set to further expose the truth behind the September 11, 2012 attacks in a much shorter report that, absent the resources available to the Committee, may offer a clearer perspective on the events leading up to and during these terror attacks.

Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said at the committee’s press conference on June 28 that he is in the business of describing who, what, where, and when—and not why! In reality, the Benghazi attacks serve as a Rosetta stone into Barack Obama’s administration—its motives, its ideology, its transparency, its judgment and its ethics. Their actions must be put in context, and their cover-ups must be exposed.

The CCB report is now available online. It will be explained and discussed at a press conference at 2 p.m. ET on June 29 at the National Press Club, where several members of the CCB will be discussing what led up to our presence in Libya, and our government’s dereliction of duty in failing to send forces to aid Americans during the attacks. The report tells the real story of the Obama administration cover-up, which was designed to stifle free speech and distract from terrorism abroad during an election season by focusing on the influence of an Internet video, “The Innocence of Muslims.” This terror attack had its roots in President Obama’s own foreign policy.

President Obama and Hillary Clinton decided in 2011 to side with al-Qaeda-linked rebels in Libya and oust Muammar Qaddafi, who had previously given up his Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and become an ally in the global war on terror. Despite his past cooperation, the Obama administration refused to engage in truce talks with Qaddafi. Admiral Chuck Kubic, who personally delivered the message of Qaddafi’s request for negotiations and a possible abdication, will be in attendance in support of the CCB. Mrs. Clinton ordered the Pentagon not to contact Qaddafi’s son, Saif, or other Libyan officials, after the United Nations passed Resolution 1973 creating a “No Fly Zone.”


The aid to the al-Qaeda-linked rebels ultimately created a failed state saturated with weapons, jihadis, and rival militias—the deadly and chaotic atmosphere that eventually contributed to the death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other brave Americans. But Stevens himself, as U.S. envoy to the rebels, had coordinated with jihadis such as former Libyan Islamic Fighting Group leader Abdelhakim Belhadj.


The CCB report details how the Clinton State Department ignored over 600 requests for additional security for those serving in Libya. The Obama administration also overlooked multiple warnings of an impending attack, and then staged a cover-up after four Americans died.

In addition to the report, the CCB has a number of questions for the Select Committee on Benghazi, as well as for the Obama administration, including:

  • When, how, and why did the Obama administration and the Department of State decide to back the overthrow of the Muammar Qaddafi regime?
  • Which Congressional members were aware of the administration’s support for gun-running operations to Libyan al-Qa-eda-linked militias and later to Syrian jihadis?
  • Who specifically within the Obama administration was aware of any of the multiple warnings that indicated an Islamic terror attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi was likely or in potential planning stages before September 11, 2012?
  • Why was a Combatant Commanders conference called in Washington D.C. over the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks?
  • Obama administration officials have claimed that forces could not make it to Benghazi in time. Secretary Clinton never even asked for Libyan cross-border approval that night. How did the administration know when the attacks would end, or when it would be too late to send in military assets?

Uncommon Sense


Ray DiLorenzo

Understandably, no one wants to be labeled a bigot, or racist or a xenophobe. Western culture has shed much blood in creating societies that embrace freedom and tolerance. But, what if a relatively small portion of the world decides to use that freedom and tolerance to infiltrate and attempt to destroy what we have created…a trojan horse, if you will?   The question we need to ask is:

At what point do we abandon our tradition of inclusiveness and equal opportunity for a segment of a ‘religion’ that preaches that ‘unbelievers’ or people that do not or will not practice their religion are to be exterminated?

Never mind that the percentage may only be 20-30%.  25% of Islam would be about 400 million people dedicated to killing us.  The 25% estimate may be far too small.  The Anti-Defamation League, in 2014, polled 53,100 people in 102 countries for evidence of anti-semitism.  A full 74% of African and Middle Eastern residents registered anti-semitic beliefs, including 92% of Iraqis, 69% of relatively secular Turks, and 74% of Saudis.

In numerous Muslim countries, overwhelming majorities support the death penalty for apostasy or blasphemy.  This means literally hundreds of millions of Muslims support capital punishment for the exercise of the basic civil rights of freedom of religion and expression.

This fact and the over 50,000 innocent people slaughtered by Muslims in the last twenty years upholds the estimated 400 million Muslims that want us liquidated.  

In the meantime, the Clarion Project, in a five year study of 250 mosques,  Islamic Centers and Islamic schools in the United States found that Islamic leaders are teaching young Muslim children to hate America, our government and our military personnel. Children as young as seven are being taught that to assimilate with American society is to dishonor Islam. Many mosques are teaching children to hate America and kill those that oppress or dishonor Islam.   These facts are being withheld by our government.

Regardless of what many people suspect, a large section of the population in the United States is willing to demonstrate their ‘moral and ethical superiority’ by ignoring what is obvious…the Muslim world is overcome with hate.

The days of thinking that Islamic terrorism is emanating from a tiny group of radicals is over.  Was it so unreasonable of Donald Trump to suggest that we need to temporarily halt immigration from Muslim countries until we figure out what is going on?

If so, who should we sacrifice on the alter of political correctness, my family, your family?

News You Can Use

Great Britain Declares Independence, PM Resigns

The people of Great Britain have voted to leave the European Union!!  72% of voters in the United Kingdom showed up at the polls.  Prime Minister David Cameron announced his intention to resign in three months.  Although hidden by the mainstream media, this is also a tremendous loss for President Obama who, in his April visit to Britain, urged a “No” vote.  British polls showed the opposition to Obama’s remarks at about 60%.  Fox News, Newsmax


Editor’s note:  This is a victory for national sovereignty, independence and secure borders…a rejection of globalization, big government, uncontrolled immigration, and self-serving politics.  This will, undoubtedly, help the Trump campaign.  As usual, all the ‘experts’ misread the mood of the people.


65% of Terror Convicts Foreign Born

At least 65% of individuals convicted of terrorism in the U.S. since 9/11 are foreign-born. according to the Justice Department.  Of the 380 foreign-born convicts, 62 were from Pakistan, 28 from Lebanon, 22 were Palestinian, 21 from Somalia, 20 from Yemen, 19 from Iraq, 16 from Jordan, 17 from Egypt, and 10 from Afghanistan.  The birthplace of the remaining convicts remains unknown. Breitbart, Washington Examiner

Editor’s note:  Well, this is a real shocker…a number of Muslim refugees are committing terrorist acts in the U.S.  The strategy is clear–terrorists are infiltrating our country in frightening numbers. The stupidity in the U.S. and Europe concerning refugees is beyond comprehension.  It is moronic to think this immigration situation is not unique to our times. This data confirms that the U.S. lacks any real vetting process of refugees entering the United States while the Obama administration wants to increase refugee immigration by 6 times! Many more innocent people will die, but no one will call us racist or Islamophobic, which, to many people in our government, is worse than violent death.


SCOTUS Says No To Obama’s Expanding of the Democrat Party

The United States Supreme Court has put the kibosh on Obama’s nefarious attempt to use immigration to grow the Democrat Party.  Obama attempted to declare legal or import millions of uneducated and unskilled immigrants and buy their allegiance with food stamps, free health care and housing allowances.

Editor’s note:  This ruling will effectively leave the future of immigration policy to the next presidential administration and congress.


Democrats Conduct Sit-in Over Gun Control

By now, most people are aware of the Democrat sit-in in Congress protesting the lack of additional gun control.  They accomplished nothing.  Democrats sat on the floor and actually had a picnic.  Fox News, Bearing Arms

Editor’s note:  Democrats need to blame gun violence and terrorism on guns, not Islamic terrorism or their failed domestic policies  If it wasn’t for two or three cities like Chicago or New Orleans, gun violence would actually be in decline. They know that terrorist attacks and the violence in inner cities will just help Trump’s campaign.  This is a political stunt.  We badly need adults in Congress. “I would rather live in dangerous freedom than peaceful slavery.”  Thomas Jefferson

As a side note: The people of this country would be better served if Congress investigated the 251,000 deaths a year caused by errors committed by the medical profession, the third leading cause of death in America.  As a professional pilot, I get re-checked twice a year for competence.  How often do doctors and nurses get re-examined?  Can anyone imagine the outcry if the aviation industry lost 251,000 passengers a year?

Muslim Migrant Families Evicted

Three Muslim Iraqi and Sudanese families have been evicted from an apartment complex in Twin Falls, Idaho, when their three children, ages 7, 10, and 14 sexually assaulted a 5 year old Idaho girl.  The girl was stripped naked, and sexually assaulted while they urinated in her mouth – all  while they filmed the incident.  The boys are being held in a detention center.  Breitbart, Idaho Statesman

Editor’s note:  Muslim men typically assault and rape women in a manner that would please any ‘B’ horror movie producer.  Their intention is to destroy the infidel, not merely harm the person.  House Speaker, Paul Ryan, has repeatedly said that “any restrictions on Muslim migration is not our values.”  In the meantime, his children attend Catholic school where Muslims are excluded. Mr. Ryan is no friend of the American people.  He is a self-serving establishment fraud and is secretly hoping Hillary wins as he is being promised the presidential nomination in 2020. 


In Case You Missed It

When The Clintons Left The White House

When George Bush took over the White House after the Clintons departed, there were reports of wide-spread vandalism to the White House.  Permanent White House staff said “they believed that what they observed during the transition, such as broken furniture and excessive trash left behind, was done intentionally.”  The General Accounting Office was called to investigate.


The GAO released a 220 page report on 6/11/2002.  They found that there was indeed vandalism to the tune of about $20,000.  According to the NY Times and ABC News, some of the vandalism or pranks were:

Glue spread on desk drawers

Missing W keys on keyboards

Pornographic messages left on phone lines

Copier paper replaced with nude photos

Ten cut phone lines

Graffiti on bathroom walls and in six offices, some obscene

Phones and Fax machines intentionally plugged into the wrong wall outlets

26 missing cell phones

Offices full of trash

A 12″ presidential seal stolen

Missing door knobs, office signs, and medallions

Broken and overturned furniture in 20% of the offices

A substantial amount of useable office supplies in the trash

Editor’s note:  The Democratic National Committee’s reaction to the vandalism was their shock and dismay that the vandalism was reported.  I guess they thought that every outgoing administration trashes the White House before they leave.

As a side note, according to the  L.A. Times,  Bill and Hillary Clinton started shipping White House furniture to their newly purchased home in New York a year before Bill left office.  Maybe they thought no one would miss it.

Timeless Quotes


“Never globalize a problem if it can be possibly be dealt with locally.”

Garrett Hardin

The governments of the United States and Europe have succeeded in exacerbating the problem of Islamic radicalism.  They have literally helped bring it to our shores and continue to do so.  As General Vallely had proposed several years ago, we could have set up safe zones for refugees and left the refugees in their own country.  If it had been adopted, hundreds of innocent Americans and Europeans would still be alive today.


“There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. …The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.”

Theodore Roosevelt, 1915



Montebello High School, Montebello, California

The result of multiculturalism – a tangle of squabbling nationalities.

“Path To Glory” June 26, 2016

“Path to Glory”


 Paul Vallely (MG, US Army Ret)  and Tom Marin

Today, we Americans are marching to a new ‘Path to Glory” for our country much as our founders and ancestors had to do. Today, we must be Americans First and rise above partisan politics and political parties. We must face the future through a reality prism and seek to restore this great country, our Republic and the Constitution. The challenge ahead is to select common sense leaders who understand our challenges and have the vision to lead us to a secure America so all can be in the pursuit of happiness and a thankful life.

On April 19th 1775, British regular troops and colonists came to blows in what many believe was the real beginning of the Revolutionary War.




Evil has many forms, and simply stated, it is a word to describe the acts of omission or acts of commission to inflict wanton harm or destruction or, according to Wiktionary, a deliberate violation of some accepted moral code of behavior, i.e. a fiduciary obligation. Evil, as defined by The Free Dictionary, is that which causes harm, misfortune, or destruction: as in a leader’s power to do both good and/or evil.


The history of human existence, an accumulation of human events, has included the dominance to control resources and enslaving the free and the weak in order to increase power and greed. It was only natural for our founding fathers to plant our flag in our course of time in history and lay claim to life based on freedom and liberty. It makes perfect sense that our founding fathers began the Declaration of Independence with the words, “When in the course of human events…” Our enemies both foreign and domestic do not want to discuss the course of human events,  events and facts that happened, but only want to focus on their elixir of the future, “tomorrow”, aka the new world order, based once again on natural resources, the consumption of resources, and control.


The manifestation of evil that we have been witnessing, especially the last seven years, as well as the complete lack of enforcement of our laws by people we have entrusted with our safety and security,  not only patronizes who we are as individuals, our heritage and what we stand for as a nation but also hurls us into great risk. We can no longer tolerate this ongoing sabotage by omission with its willful blindness and negligent disregard. It has been a deliberate effort to accomplish the complete destruction of America and its way of life. The intent is to create a new world order based on resource management where American citizens and other freedom-loving people will be part of the resources to be managed as the lowest replaceable units. An American citizen needs only to read the details of The Affordable Care Act to understand this herding.


At the Battle of Concord and Lexington, ordinary residents of the colony of Massachusetts made a decision of conscience to stand up against the increasingly oppressive tyranny of King George III and the British Parliament after a series of methodical steps to limit their freedom, their physical security, and to inhibit their health and welfare by limiting their retention of the benefits of their own labor and use of their private property by raising taxes and controlling commerce. Even in 1763, the cartel of entrenched parliamentarians did not want to relinquish control to subordinated subjects who were regarded merely as producers and consumers of goods and services for the benefit of The Bank of England and who reported to the higher authority of the crown and the elite, all knowing, ministers of control. Unable to coerce the residents under their authority, the British Parliament ordered the seizure of their guns and ammunition.






Nothing has changed. Human behavior and the battle of good vs. evil is ongoing. The patriots at Concord knew it, and as Ronald Reagan clearly stated almost two centuries later, “The Founding Fathers knew a government can’t control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing.”


Through the years, with all the “legislative” tools and devices, from the 1760’s and 1770’s, from The Sugar Act, The Stamp Act, the Quartering Act, The Declaratory Act, The Townshend Revenue Acts, The Tea Act, The Intolerable and Coercive Acts, and The Prohibitory Act to 1978-2008 to The Depository Institutions Deregulation and Monetary Control Act of 1980, to The Credit Card Rules and Credit Card Act, to The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act , to The Commodity Futures Modernization Act, to The Community Reinvestment Act, and to 2009-2016 and Obamacare and the Trans Pacific Partnership, which was negotiated in secret for a reason, and to the 229 restrictive executive orders that equate to 1,086 pages issued by the current administrative controller, Reagan’s words rang true in 1981 as if he was speaking in 1775 at the North Concord Bridge. It was as if he was establishing a bridge for the path to glory to the past and to tomorrow for today. Our past, present, and future (Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow) are based on the confrontation of good vs evil. It is in the genre of novels, art, and movies all throughout the history of man and the history of Christianity. This is why “progressives”, which are actually fascists and communists, want to rewrite history and forget our heroes. Our past also confirms the confrontation of evil and its consistent defeats. At each and every juncture in American history, individuals made a decision to stand up and be free. To do otherwise, they would relegate their destiny to evil. Today we must confront “The Total Collective Effort of Evil” in our time and to do so we must recognize “the artful liars” and all the hidden agendas in selling us out to a system of control. Statesmen need to come forward to actually serve the people and preserve and protect our Republic. The “politocracy” must be eradicated. A very simple question needs to be asked as we evaluate how to proceed at each event, “Who benefits and who gets hurt?” We believe the minutemen at Concord and Ronald Reagan knew the simple answer and the courage it took to never relinquish freedom.


“There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.”  – Ronald Reagan


All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing” – Edmund Burke


“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”

— James Madison,  The Federalist, No. 47

The compromising of America: Long-standing secret dealings have made allies of the U.S. and Iran June 24, 2016

The compromising of America

Long-standing secret dealings have made allies of the U.S. and Iran

By James A. Lyons – – Monday, June 20, 2016


Recently declassified U.S. documents have revealed shocking information on how President Jimmy Carter and his administration conducted secret meetings and communications with Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and his entourage, thereby undercutting our longstanding ally and friend, the Shah of Iran and his loyal military. The story was published by the BBC in a June 3 article by Kambiz Fatthi of the BBC Persian Service.

As the situation steadily deteriorated in late 1978, a 48-member Iranian interagency task group was formed under the direction of Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs David Newsome. I was the director of political military affairs for the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) at that time and was the JCS representative on the interagency group. With the left-wing agenda of the Carter administration and their hyped focus on human rights, the Shah was doomed. In fact, I was the only one supporting the Shah and his military because they represented the strategic underpinnings of our security policy in the Persian Gulf. That viewpoint was not appreciated and was basically dismissed by the interagency group. Contrary to recent claims by Gary Sick and Zbigniew Brzezinski of the Carter administration, their focus was on getting rid of the Shah and his designated prime minister, Shapour Bakhtiar.

On Jan. 3, 1979, amid reports of an impending military coup, Mr. Carter sent Deputy U.S. Commander in Chief, European Command Robert “Dutch” Huyser, a U.S. Air Force general, to Tehran. He was well-known to the Shah and his top generals. The message he was sent to deliver was to tell the Shah’s generals to sit tight and “not jump into a coup.”

Gen. Huyser had a somewhat difficult time getting the top Iranian generals to coordinate their efforts. Complicating matters was the loyalty of the Shah’s chief of staff, Gen. Abbas Gharabaghi. It was Gharabaghi who personally prevented the closure of all custom entry points, which facilitated the flow of arms to Khomeini’s revolutionaries. The fact that Gharabaghi was not executed along with the other top generals lends credence to the claim of questionable loyalty.

Separately, the Shah’s prime minister, Shapour Bakhtiar, deployed troops and tanks to close Tehran’s airport, thereby preventing Khomeini’s return in late January 1979. During this crisis there was a total failure by the U.S. intelligence community to properly assess Khomeini’s ultimate objectives. Our human intelligence capability had been destroyed under CIA Director Stansfield Turner. We had no “hands on” penetration of Khomeini’s inner sanctum. Consequently, on about Jan. 11, 1979, an “erroneous” broad consensus had emerged within the Carter administration that they could do business with the ayatollah and his inner circle. In fact, Andrew Young, Mr. Carter’s U.N. Ambassador, stated that Khomeini would go down in history as a saint, another Mahatma Gandhi. Unbelievable.

On Jan. 15, Khomeini commenced a two-week dialogue with Mr. Carter through his chief of staff, Ebrahim Yagdi, and Warren Zimmerman, political counselor in our Paris embassy, outside of Paris. Entering into this dialogue marked a dramatic shift in U.S. policy and was a clear signal to Khomeini that we were dumping our old ally and friend. On July 16, the Shah left Iran for good.

During Zimmerman’s second meeting, he was directed to pass along the information that the Iranian military had seriously considered conducting a coup upon the Shah’s departure, but Gen. Huyser talked them out of it. On Jan. 18, Mr. Carter told Khomeini he had no problem with his “orderly” homecoming. He later stated that America was “flexible about the Iranian political system,” and if the integrity of the army would be preserved, the military will support whatever system is selected. Mr. Carter switched sides.

The ayatollah then told Mr. Carter everything he wanted to hear. The military would not be destroyed. He would not export his revolution or cut oil flow to the West. He vowed not to destabilize the region and pledged “non-interference in other people’s affairs. He added that Jews will have nothing to fear. We certainly know how those promises turned out.

On Jan. 27, Khomeini made a direct appeal to the White House as he still needed its help. He had three requests: smooth the way for his return, press the constitutional government to resign, and force the military to capitulate. Secretary of Defense Harold Brown informed Gen. Huyser about the secret message and made it plain that Khomeini’s return was not sufficient cause for a coup.

On Jan. 29, Iran’s prime minister opened Iran’s airspace under tremendous pressure, which allowed Khomeini to return on Feb. 1. What’s not generally known is that the chartered aircraft that brought Khomeini to Tehran was arranged by Youssef Nada, a top Muslim Brotherhood leader in Europe, and the founder of the Al-Taqwa Bank, which funded al Qaeda.

Since then, the Muslim Brotherhood has continued its support and influence, as indicated in the 9/11 Commission report. Separately, and as part of its overall plan, the Muslim Brotherhood has successfully penetrated key U.S. government agencies during the past 35 years, in particular, the Obama administration’s State Department, National Security Council and White House.

According to foreign policy analyst Michael Ledeen, after Barack Obama received the Democratic Party’s nomination for the presidency, he opened secret negotiations with Iranian mullahs in the summer of 2008. These negotiations have led to a treasonously flawed nuclear weapons deal with Iran. Combined with President Obama’s 14 impeachable acts identified by Andy McCarthy in his book, “Faithless Execution,” they have completed Mr. Carter’s compromise of America. We are now an ally of Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism that has cost thousands of American lives. This cannot stand.
