The Truth about Benghazi

     The Muslim brothers who killed and maimed dozens in Boston were spies.
Like any spy, they pretended to carry on a normal life to fool everyone around them. Except for a few other Muslims (yet to be determined) nobody suspected anything, not even the FBI. Well, the Russians suspected ‘em, and warned us, but who trusts a Russian?
       
    America has raised $28 million for the victims of the Boston terrorists. That’s good. But we need to remember also that a fertilizer plant in the small Texas town of West blew up. Fourteen died, almost 200 were injured, and tremendous damage was done to buildings. The nearby Waco Foundation is accepting contributions for the town.

    I hate to write this about any President. But Obama’s answer about the Benghazi attack September 11 is the same as Sgt. Schultz’s on Hogan’s Heroes: “I know nothiiing.” And Secretary of State Clinton is no better. One of her ambassadors was killed by Islamic terrorists, and five months later she told Congress,  “What difference does it make now?” She said she did not even know that Ambassador Stevens had requested more security protection. Apparently she was busy trying to maintain peace and protect our national security by flying to places like Malawi, Latvia and Lithuania. And Benin, Burma and Togo, too.

    Well, this week some men who survived the Benghazi terrorist attack will inform President Obama and Mrs. Clinton what the rest of us suspected all along. When they testify to Congress we’ll all learn details we should have learned, first hand, last October. The President kept the details hidden until after the 2012 election. Mrs. Clinton hopes the details are forgotten before the 2016 election.

    Have you heard about the Pigford case? Fifteen years ago the Department of Agriculture admitted they had discriminated against some southern black farmers, and they deserved compensation. Well, out of an estimated 3000 farmers who might have been refused loans, how many do you suppose have filed a claim? About 100,000. So far. Out of those legitimate 3000, the most anyone collected was $50,000. But one man collected $10,000,000. You might say, ‘He must have been a really big farmer.’ No, he’s a lawyer. A big shyster lawyer named Al Pires. He recruited many of the 97,000 pretend farmers, promised to get them some free money, and pirated a big chunk of it for himself.  This scheme has cost us taxpayers way over two Billion dollars, with most going to lawyers who turn around and grease the palms of politicians who keep the scheme going with no end in sight.

    Another shyster lawyer convinced USDA that Cherokees and other Indian farmers deserved $750,000,000; so far the lawyer distributed $300,000,000 but they have hung on to the rest. The only way an Indian farmer has a chance to make as much from his land as the lawyer is to build a casino on it. The odds on that ain’t so good either.

Historic quotes by Will Rogers:
    “3500 lawyers of the American Bar Association are here (in Los Angeles) eating us out of house and home. They are here, they say, ‘to save the Constitution, to preserve State rights.’ What they ought to be here for, that would make this convention immortal, is to kick the crooks out of their profession.” 
DT #2789, July 14, 1935
    “Went down and spoke at (the ABA convention) last night. They didn't think much of my little squib yesterday about driving the shysters out of their profession. They seemed to kinder doubt just who would have to leave.” DT #2791, July 16, 1935
