WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has introduced a resolution, S.R. 225, to create a joint select committee to investigate the Benghazi terrorist attacks from one year ago, last September 11, 2012. On Wednesday, Sen. Cruz requested unanimous consent to introduce and pass the resolution, but Democrats blocked it from consideration.

“On September 11, 2012, four Americans were brutally murdered in a terrorist attack against our embassy in Benghazi and one year later, there has still been no action of reprisal and no justice rendered upon the assailants,” Sen. Cruz said. “Failure to hold accountable the perpetrators of this vicious attack will leave terrorists around the world with the impression that they can kill Americans and escape the consequences, increasing the likelihood of future attacks. The American people deserve to have a complete account from their government of the events in Benghazi before, during, and after the attack.”

The Cruz resolution currently has 19 cosponsors including Sens. Vitter, Blunt, Toomey, Paul, Scott, Heller, Lee, Inhofe, Ayotte, Portman, Coburn, Roberts, Risch, Ron Johnson, Isakson, Crapo, Cochran, Grassley and Enzi.

Additionally, Sen. Cruz has cosponsored legislation, the Honoring the Fort Hood Heroes Act, filed by Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) to rightfully designate the Fort Hood shooting as a terrorist attack. In the aftermath of the shooting, the State Department designated the attack as “workplace violence” because the attack took place on U.S. soil rather than in a designated combat zone. This designation has prevented victims from receiving the same awards and benefits as their deployed counterparts who are wounded or killed in the line of duty. The Honoring the Fort Hood Heroes Act would correct this inequity and provide benefits the Fort Hood victims deserve.

The Democrats are doing their best to stall so it won't effect their bids for re-election or election in 2014. They don't realize it is already too late. Americans are tired of their acts of treason.

It will all be revealed someday.  I suspect that Obama will leave the country after he serves his term, to seek asylum.  Bet Russia wouldn't take him.  

I don't believe that this is about saving Obama! The whole political situation has morphed to the point that Dems are no longer trying to save Obama but the Democratic party and their own jobs.

How can there only be 19 cosponsors? The U.S. Senate sucks

Yeah, the only two Senators not owned by the bankers are Cruz and Paul.  The rest of  them are traitors.

GOD BLESS TED CRUZ FOR STANDING UP AND DOING THIS,(what I have Prayed for someone todo!!). ALL ALONG IT HAS BEEN ABOUT OIL AND GAS PIPELINE TO GO THRU SYRIA!! Anyone in OBAMAs way, well, see?? This is all on OBAMA!! TRESON!! CHARGE OBAMA WITH TREASON! Regardless if he's BLACK,(part Black!!). Anyone who was in it with  him and witness to his TREASON, Investigat them and suspend their OFFICE they hold!! Let us see when they are out of the way, where the other rats are!! Let alone the FED!! What did happen to all the GOLD after they removed it from underground at the TWIN-TOWERS, 9/11/2001. GUN RUNNING!! That is also grounds for TREASON CHARGES, AIDING and ABETTING HE ENEMY, AL QEADA and THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD!! The creeps are in the WHITE HOUSE appointed to High positions, and SECURITY!!!! I kn ow what is going on!! I SEE IT EVERYDAY!!! 2+2=4!! 4 DEAD WITH OBAMA LEAD!!!!! I am sick of his blame everyone but him game!! CRIMINAL!!! GOD BLESS AMERICA AGAIN!! UNITED WE STAND!!

CYA. Shame on you people.

Party before country with both of them.

Protecting criminal corrupt government makes them just as guilty.

When this is over I won't settle for anything less than NUREMBERG STYLE TRIALS.

All of them Both Speakers. Pelosi and call Frank and Dodd back for trials. The whole mess of them.

None of this slap on the wrist stuff and relocate them to another job. Napolitano, Sebelius and Bo. We love our country they just love themselves.

Punishment of treason if found guilty too. They're just a bunch of thugs.

Senate is a den of snakes -  Harry and his pals.

Got to LOVE TEXAS . . GO CRUZ . . 

So the twin towers were an act of work place violence because it was on US soil. Lib's always twisting the truth. Ft. Hood was a terrorist attack and our military deserves better than these Obama administration lies.

Americans are sick of the lib cover ups. 2014 is nearer everyday and another opportunity to create change. All of us must vote and not let another opportunity for change to pass us by, another opportunity to take our country back. 

Ted Cruz. Rand Paul and many others have sacrificed careers so the Dems could have their vote .  Most of them are too senile or close to it.  Some of them are still o. k. However, its time for age and term limits and popcorn

yes prez imcluded;. Time for the older Dems to go!

 

Old Rhinos also ie John McCain and and his sidekick Lindsey.

ALERT ALERT

Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall

President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.

Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.

And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.

Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.

Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.

Via Law and Crime:

As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.

“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”

Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.

“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
