If you have a son (or daughter), give them a hug today. You’ll be able to do something that Mrs. Smith no longer can. Pat Smith is the mother of Sean Smith, one of the four Americans killed in the terrorist attack of the US Consulate at Benghazi. She gave a brief interview to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, shown below, and describes her meetings with, and the words of, the President, Secretaries of State and Defense, and Amb. Rice. If you can watch this without tears in your eyes, or feelings of outrage, you’re a better person than I.
There is a moral bankruptcy about this Administration, whose members put political self-preservation above national security and human interest, as personified by a mother’s anguish in not knowing what happened to her son. The mainstream media, CNN, NBC, CBS et al, are finally broadcasting the deceit and the facts of what was known, by whom, and when it was known.
After watching Mrs. Smith’s interview and asking yourself, what I would do if this nightmare was happening to me and my family, there shouldn’t be any doubt when you go into the voting booth on November 6th.

I will be called petty here, but this needs to be addressed: It was ill-advised for Donald Trump to re-apply a spray tan so close to a debate where he would be standing in front of a red background. He looked like John Boehner blushing. Look at that. LOOK | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Inbetween a number of nasty (and at this point tiresome) exchanges between Cruz and Rubio, one guy on the stage stood calm and collected in the face of constant attacks and immature interruptions from Donald Trump. Apart from one criticism of Kasich on Medicaid expansion, Bush stayed focused on the prize, and came out the clear winner. Unlike the | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES This was amazing. John Dickerson is supposed to be the debate moderator and instead he starts getting into a debate with Ted Cruz regarding the appointment of Supreme Court justices during an election year. Cruz rightly pointed out it’s been precedent for 80 years not to do this. Dickerson then started arguing with Cruz about when Justice Anthony Kennedy | Read More »
