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.

he cannot be allowed to sneak away -- The only asylum this man is worthy of is an insane asylum and a high security one at that -- There is no dollar figure on this person but were he to get away justice can never be served so patriots all throughout the nation keep watch for Obscumbo trying to sneak out of the country.  He will face his just rewards

Hell yes the democraps want to block anything to do with Benghazi. We the People would find out that hillary and obama are up to their necks guilty. That would effect hillary's chances at the 2016 elections. Hang em both out to dry.

I suggest checking out "slidefire.com" and then purchase your legal item to make your ar or ak fully auto. then we can get down to some Jefferson and Washington type business. Watch the video. It will make you smile with a freedom grin.

The Democrats fear Sen. Ted Cruz & they know he would be an excellent Presidential nominee.  Sen. Cruz will NOT give up on getting to the bottom of this.  



Anything that deals with Muslim Terrorists  does not exist in this Adm.  All mentions of Al Quida, Aljazr, Muslim Brotherhood..wiped out of our intelligence agencies.   The only  terrorists alerts important to this Adm are Tea Party, Constitution people, Christians and Jews, ... etc

   Gee I wonder why? Could it put Bonzo to bed? maybe even impeach him and destroy Hillary's chances of being the next Socialist/Marxist President to complete the destruction of a once great Nation?

   It is time to start dumping Hillary's chances and point out that she was more in bed with Arafat than Israel when hubby was getting BJ's in the oval oraface.

Hilary "what difference does it make Now!" Clinton would be affected in her bid for president.

The dems want another radical to continue the ruin of the middle class of America.

Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy: ‘The Real Second Amendment Isn’t Absolute

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) tweeted Saturday there is a “real” Second Amendment and an “imaginary” one and he believes the real one is “not absolute.”

Murphy, “I support the real 2nd Amendment, not the imaginary 2nd Amendment. And the real 2nd Amendment isn’t absolute.”

The statement was a precursor to his call for banning “assault rifles” in the wake of the Santa Fe High School shooting, even though “assault rifles” were not used in the attack.

Murphy said the “real 2nd Amendment…allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only – to kill as many people as fast as possible.”

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) said the Santa Fe High School attackers used a .38 revolver and a shotgun to carry out his heinous acts. Therefore, a ban on “assault rifles” would have done nothing to prevent the attack from occurring or the tragic loss of life from taking place.

It should be noted that Saturday was not the first time Sen. Murphy called the essence of the Second Amendment into question. On August 6, 2013, Breitbart News reported that Murphy told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that “The Second Amendment is not an absolute right, not a God-given right. It has always had conditions upon it like the First Amendment has.”

Murphy did not grapple with the words, “Shall not be infringed.”
