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.

 If "We the People" don't get it by now .. all hope for Americas future may be disintegrating before our eyes ..

Folks .. We must elect Conservative Constititionalists to have any hope at all .. support Ted Cruz and the tea Party

GOD will Bless America , but we have to honor HIM ..

Fast & Furious, Benghazi, NSA domestic spying scandal, the IRS being used to stall fund raising by groups opposed to Obama, the Egyptian Press claiming in their headlines that Barrack Hussein Obama has illegally funneled $8 BILLION dollars to Hamas, and is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Geez boys and girls could this all be because our honorable and hardworking media were too damn busy fawning over Obama than to properly investigate his background? What about government background checks to give security to the incoming president?Obama, and the heads of the national media ought to be tried and then executed for treason.

We need to keep calling the Democrats out for placing politics above the safety of Americans.  I use my other social media to deliver the message on a regular basis.  I would like to connect with the Tea Party on FaceBook but do not want to surrender my family and friends info in order to do so.

Carolan, you might think about creating another FB solely for patriot issues.

This is disgusting. Remember though, although we are always being picked to pieces on the media, the Dems really have NOTHING after Obama and the Benghazi Bitch!. Nothing! I mean why would anyone even consider that screaming Loon Dean, Reed is a pathetic old fart so what else is there.

I think TP is in pretty good shape.

All sorts of murders in the CLINTON WHITE-WATER, scandal!!! BONES, THUGS , LIARS, AND DISHARMONY!! OBAMA using our country to take an OIL/GAS PIPELINE in SYRIA, funding AL QEADA rebels,OBAMA making deals with theSAUDIS KING !! (AKA, apology tour), AIDING and ABETTING, HAMAS enemy of our country! Appointing MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD members and sympathisers into HIGH positions of the WHITE HOUSE, and CZARS!! His brother, on a SECURITY WATCH LIST, for being  a member of the MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD!! EGYPT MEDIA<(who don't like OBAMA, and hate him as much as we do), came out and said, 'FOR SURE!! OBAMA IS A MEMBER OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD !! Has great power with them!! OBAMA, now appears to have bloodties with the ROYAL FAMILY , He said,' 2 weeks ago,'Where I come from, I'm known as a PRINCE,(yeah, PRINCE of DARKNESS!!).

REMOVE OBAMA FOR TREASON!! Larry K.Parent,Naples,FL. 'SUPER-PATRIOT'.

Larry, you are so dead on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!In the history of our country I do not believe that we have ever had so many COWARDS. This is up to the people and our Military (past and present) to take our country back. I have no doubt that God will have our back. Thank you for your service to our country.  I pray that the American people will not let this country down.

 Of course those mentally ill leftists are afraid their hopes to see Hilarious as their president would be shot if the people realized she helped cover up the disaster.

We are behind Ted Cruz all the way and if we need to send petitions to get these idiot overturned from keeping Cruz from investigating.  We need to let Ted Cruz know that we are behind him all the way and we will help him do anything he needs to do to charge these evil corrupt loons in the WH.

THE DEMS KNOW BARRY IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE DEATHS . THEY WILL NEVER LET BENGHAZI BE INVESTIGATED .

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.
