Funny, when I typed the title, I just now got the metaphor.
Hey, when I’m watching SciFi I’m watching the story, not looking for deep political meaning. Hell, I don’t even remember which pill Neo took to escape the Matrix.
I’d sign up for the Mars Colony mission if I could avoid all the political bullshit.
Unfortunately, when you think about it, the Mars Colony mission is fraught with political issues and since the mission is one way and everyone is expected to die on Mars…
Well… just imagine having a political disagreement and having to worry about being “Spaced” on the way there, or getting tossed out on the Martian surface without a suit.
The Conservatives are saying that Trey Gowdy’s committee “won” because they got Hillary Clinton to sorta admit that there was some illegality in her dealings as Secretary of State.
Salon, on the other hand likens the hearings to McCarthyism or the Salem Witch Trials. The Author goes so far as to say that Hillary Trounced the evil Republicans.
To some extent I agree that the Hearings have gone well beyond Benghazi.
To Sum up what I think we know.
- The unrest in Benghazi was not the result of a YouTube Video
- The “Embassy” was not secure
- The Ambassador requested additional security and his request was either denied or ignored.
- The British and several other embassy missions had already left Benghazi due to local unrest and Libyan inability to protect diplomatic personnel and those missions.
- Hillary Clinton has repeatedly lied about the events in Benghazi, as has the White House, and State Department.
- The Ambassador and security people were killed during a coordinated attack – NOT A PROTEST, on a US embassy.
What we don’t know is; What Hillary Clinton, President Obama, and the State Department were/are covering up.
Not directly related to Benghazi, we know that Hillary has also broken laws and ignored White House guidance, regarding her email server. We also know that Hillary has lied about this and other things too.
It’s human nature to keep picking at a lie. I think in the case of a lawyer, that nature is magnified by a factor of at least 100. Trey Gowdy is a lawyer, and former prosecutor. As long as Hillary keeps lying, his nature won’t let it go.
It’s not about destroying Hillary it’s about Hillary looking him in the face, smiling and lying.
She knows she’s going to get away with whatever the hell she’s done. As a prosecutor, Gowdy’s nature is to run the bullshit to ground, expose the crime in all it’s hideous detail and demand justice.
You can’t blame a leopard for having spots, or for not being able to change them.
I personally think that Hillary Clinton is guilty as sin for any number of things. I think she should be in prison and I believe that Hillary Clinton is not fit to be President. Were she anyone else, her career, campaign, and life in the public eye would already be over.
Scandals follow her like dark clouds. She has repeatedly behaved as though she was above the law. The implosion of her career and campaign should it happen, will not be due to the Republicans, or Trey Gowdy, it will be by Hillary Clinton’s own doing.
My beliefs however, are irrelevant, the facts are not. It is the facts that Gowdy’s committee is trying to get at, it is the right of the American people to have those facts.
As the writer in Salon points out. The side benefit for the evil Republicans, is that Hillary gets knocked out of the running for the Presidency.
I think that would be best for the Country but I’m only one voice. I don’t believe these hearings are about destroying Hillary.
I do believe there is more than enough smoke surrounding these hearings to justify investigation into every single lousy transaction, donation, and donor to The Clintons and their foundation.
As I read through the contradictory reports on Hillary’s Benghazi appearance, I found myself asking, “isn’t it the best interests of both the Democrat and Republican parties to put this to bed? Instead of the Democrat leaders rallying around Hillary shouldn’t they instead be rallying around the truth? ”
Every time I see or hear Elijah Cummings I want to grab him, shake him, and ask if the truth is important to him then why does he obfuscate and waste time in every hearing?
Why not, instead become a champion for expeditiously getting to the bottom of all the allegations?
Why isn’t HE asking Hillary Clinton questions like, “WHY does it take an FBI investigation to get the information that this Committee requested two years ago? WHY, Mrs. Clinton have you been hiding material and wasting the tax payer’s money by confounding and drawing this hearing out? WHY Mrs. Clinton are we STILL here having to tease the facts out of you, your staff, and even the State Department?”
Both parties should be asking those kinds of questions, not playing partisan politics.
It shouldn’t matter which color pill you’re taking, truth and reality should trump either of them.
