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.

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

GOP Activist Investigating Hillary Clinton’s Lost Emails
Found Dead — Apparent Suicide By Black Plastic Bag Republican activist Peter Smith was found dead in his hotel room in May 2017 in Rochester, Minnesota.

The hotel staff found Smith with a black plastic bag on his head. He was trying to obtain Hillary Clinton’s lost emails.

UPDATE: Mueller and Congressional investigators have interviewed Smith’s acquaintances several times. Our sources say there is much more to this story.

The Wall Street Journal reported:

Peter W. Smith, a Republican political activist and financier from Chicago who mounted an effort to obtain former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers, died on May 14 after asphyxiating himself in a hotel room in Rochester, Minn., according to local authorities. He was 81 years old.

Mr. Smith’s body was found by a hotel clerk in the Aspen Suites hotel, located across the street from the Mayo Clinic, according to a Rochester Police Department report. An associate of Mr. Smith said that he had recently visited the clinic. A representative for the facility wouldn’t confirm if Mr. Smith was a patient.

Mr. Smith died about 10 days after an interview with The Wall Street Journal in which he recounted his attempts to acquire what he believed were thousands of emails stolen from Mrs. Clinton’s private email server. He implied that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then serving as the senior national security adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, was aware of his efforts…

…The police report said Mr. Smith was found by a hotel clerk with a plastic bag around his head attached tightly with black rubber bands. Mr. Smith “left documentation on why he committed suicide, medical records, his written obituary, and life insurance” on a table in his room, the report said.

Massachusetts Man Arrested After Trying To Hire
A Hit Man On Twitter To Kill ICE Agents For $500

A 33-year-old lefty from Cambridge, Massachusetts named Brandon Ziobrowski was arrested Thursday after offering anyone on Twitter $500 to kill ICE agents.

Ziobrowski also expressed his desire to slit John McCain’s throat in several tweets.

FOX News reported:

A Massachusetts man was arrested in New York on Thursday after trying to hire a hit man on Twitter to kill ICE agents for $500 and sharing his desire to slit the throat of Sen. John McCain, federal officials said.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts said that Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, from Cambridge, Mass. was charged with one count of use of interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat and injure another person for the alleged Twitter posts this year.

Federal officials said Ziobrowski tweeted a murder for hire solicitation to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for $500, and repeatedly tweeted his desire to slit the throat of McCain, R-Ariz.

“The agents and officers out there enforcing federal laws are doing their job, plain and simple,” U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said at a news conference. “There is a difference between public debate and putting others in fear of their lives.”

Federal officials said Ziobrowski in March started tweeting threatening messages against federal agents that work for ICE.

On July 2, the 33-year-old allegedly tweeted: “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this lets make this work.”

The Justice Department released a statement on the arrest of Ziobrowski:
