Benghazi Again Maybe?
Retired
Last comment by LarryBaca 1 month ago.

Once again we are bored with this rather lengthy, rambling, strange obsession with Hillary Clinton and President Obama (Democrat 'Dream Team' going after President Trump) Dec 13 by Frank Aquila.

I say 'rather lengthy, rambling' because this letter took a full third of a page, longer than the days Editorial. Apparently Mr. Aquila doesn't realize President Obama finished his 8 years in office and Hillary Clinton lost the last election a full year ago.

Maybe Mr. Aquila would like to bring back Benghazi again. Heck, why not? The Republican Congress kept themselves busy for years on this one. The Republicans managed to make it the longest, costliest and most bitterly partisan congressional investigations in history. Compare that to the ongoing Russia/Election meddling investigation which affects every American Voter and the foundation of our Democracy. Of course Trump and Aquila would call that "Fake News" as did Trump again just yesterday.

The only Obama Administration "Scandal" that comes to mind, was the time President Obama dared to wear a Tan Suit, contrast that to what we are subjected to on an almost daily basis. There is no ongoing investigation with either President Obama or Hillary Clinton, unlike the two congressional investigations plus a Special Prosecutor investigation looking into the Trump/Russia collusion scandal. An investigation which has already lead to a couple of guilty pleas and two indictments on two other Administration officials who are currently under house arrest. Two of the individuals who have already pleaded guilty are now cooperating with the Special Investigators and you can bet more indictments will follow, and THAT is what has most Republican Congressmen and avid Trump supporters like Aquila shaking in their boots..

I suppose this is why Mr. Aquila is vainly trying to blow as much smoke as possible, the same game plan being pursued by the Trump Administration and the Republican Congress as well as FOX News. This isn't going to make the investigations into the Trump/Russia collusion go away. In fact, it looks like Obstruction of Justice charges against Trump are just around the corner. Republican Congressmen, and Mr. Aquila are now trying to discredit the Muller investigation and the entire FBI by doing things like bringing up Peter Strzok, the FBI agent Muller let go for making Email comments about Trump. What Mr. Aquila decided to take a pass on, was what Strzok said in one such EM which was calling Trump an "Idiot". I suppose Aquila doesn't want to draw attention to the obvious. I guess an FBI agent calling Trump an "Idiot" is way worse then Trump's own Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson calling Trump a "Moron", both of which I think most Americans agree on, are quite accurate. Apparently Trumps lowest favorable rating of any sitting President ever, now at 32% qualifies both those descriptors, doesn't it?

Mr. Aquila should stick to issues that affect every American. Could it be he may light up the reasons for those dismal ratings? Let's just take a couple of the very recent issues like why doesn't he talk about Net Neutrality or the real reason why the Trump Administration is so adamant about repealing Net Neutrality? I mean besides the fact it was an Obama policy. Could it be because it is going to cost everyone who now depends on free and unhindered Internet access? Why doesn't he talk about the giant tax giveaway to the rich and giant corporations on the backs of the average American or about the 13 million Americans who will lose their health coverage and the millions more who will see increases in their Health Premiums because of it? Maybe he can explain why this highly unpopular Tax Bill seems to be constructed in a way to punish those states who voted against Trump by having people living in states with high State and Local taxes like New York or California losing their ability to deduct those taxes? Why doesn't he talk about Sexual Harassment? Could it be that the biggest self described Sexual Predator is Trump, who bragged about the methods he used to prey on women and the 19 women who came forward to verify his own words recorded on that infamous Access Hollywood tape?

No, I doubt Aquila will ever walk that walk. He will most likely sit in his Fortress of Solitude and continue to kick the flat tires of the Hillary/Obama scandals that never were, never realizing his oversized red MAGA baseball hat is fraying and fading as we speak. As our Tweeter Tweaker-in-Chief would say, SAD....

Good blog, Larry.

One of the objections that I had of Obama and the the Democratic Party, is that their rhetoric did not match their actions, which is clearly and plainly the same with the Grand Old Pervert Party, and their claim of being the fiscally responsible, family values Party.

Their veiled indignation at the spending for Mueller’s investigation after moving forward with their efforts to add $2.2 Trillion to the deficit (and the debit as a whole) with their tax give away, along with the $5-7 Trillion they wasted on the two undeclared wars, proves Fiscally Responsible and Republican Principles are an oxymoron. As you pointed out, to date, Mueller’s investigation has delivered two indictments and two convections, which is a 400% greater return than the GOP’s drawn out and fruitless investigation of HRC.

Americans aren’t quite as dumb as the fake news-Fox News, Trump, and the GOP are hoping for. As you pointed out, there are polls that are showing that only 32% of Americans approve of his Presidency. I watch Fivethirtyeight.com’s aggregate polls that show 37% approval, and a 56.8 disapproval. These number have stayed pretty constant all year, so they aren’t winning the hearts and minds of anyone other than his base.

It appears obvious by the continued beating of the drums by Fox News and the GOP, that Mueller is getting close, you can smell the panic. One must keep one thing in mind, if Trump did nothing wrong, then like HRC, nothing will be found. I do find it ironic that emails are playing into this investigation much in the way it did with HRC.

For as long as I can remember, Frank’s Schtick has been about “what-about-ism”, always trying to weave some BS story. Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory, such as the FBI and the CIA were involved in the JFK Assassination. The FBI for the Bay of Pigs, and the CIA for JFK wanting to pull out of Vietnam. The way Trump’s rhetoric towards these two institutions is going, it’s also possible to weave a conspiracy theory that Trump could be facing the same outcome, especially if he shuts down the Mueller investigation. Just an interesting theory, but this is how Frank’s MO works, weave a bunch of BS to an audience who is easily baffled by BS. I don’t know of anyone who would like to see this outcome, rather it appears that the majority of Americans would prefer watching the Russian plant, with the dead cat on his head do a perp walk in an orange jump suit on TV.

Seeing how the electorate has been voting for people that neither party would put up, along with a very disgruntled millennial generation looking to be heard in the next election, we could be looking at a sea change in the mid-term elections, and then let the games begin. Not sure if you read the article in HuffPost or Axio.s but the Millennials are being handed a real turd of a financial future, and are expected to start flexing their muscles towards the fading Baby Boomer’s policies.

Let’s see Frank spin that one.

I'm sure Frank will scour the Internet looking for some response someone else wrote and jump on it...
I can't wait till mid-terms, it should be very interesting...

Looks like Ripon....

I’m sure this is a coincidence, but I floated this as an example of a conspiracy theory yesterday, and look what I find today:

Go figure...

LarryBaca commented on Tuesday, Dec 19, 2017 at 15:18 PM

I was expecting that same thing from the Right next... I expect Frank will get on that boat anytime now...

TheSovereign commented on Tuesday, Dec 19, 2017 at 17:11 PM

Maybe it will slow down all that golfing, seeing that he is out in the open, and such. Makes a big fat target...

LarryBaca commented on Tuesday, Dec 19, 2017 at 19:36 PM

Good one...
