After A Fired Employee Made A Huge Allegation About Benghazi Panel, Gowdy Just Shot Back

Allegations have been made by a former Benghazi committee staffer that the committee was a planned effort to harm Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid. On Sunday, Trey Gowdy (R-SC), the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, fired back.

Gowdy stated that he had never met with the staffer and investigator, Air Force Reserves officer Bradley F. Podliska, and that Podliska had been reprimanded for his own efforts to inappropriately focus the investigation on Clinton.

Podliska, a self-described conservative Republican, alleges that he lost his job in part because he refused to focus his investigative efforts on Clinton and the State Department. He also claims that he was fired in part because he took leave to fulfill his military service obligations. If fired for this reason, it would be an unlawful firing.

The select committee’s top Democrat, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), stated: “These are extremely serious whistle-blower charges. Republicans have been abusing millions of taxpayer dollars for the illegitimate purpose of damaging Hillary Clinton’s bid for president.”

Podliska’s accusations follow statements made by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy less than two weeks ago:

“Everybody thought Hillary Clinton was unbeatable, right? But we put together a Benghazi special committee, a select committee. What are her numbers today? Her numbers are dropping. Why? Because she’s untrustable. But no one would have known any of that had happened had we not fought.”

Gowdy said about Podliska: “Because I do not know him, and cannot recall ever speaking to him, I can say for certain he was never instructed by me to focus on Clinton, nor would he be a credible person to speak on my behalf.”

Furthermore, Gowdy said that Podliska had never mentioned Clinton during his firing process or throughout the legal mediation process.

Gowdy also said that the committee had interviewed 44 new witnesses and recovered more than 50,000 pages of documents while “only half of one interview” has focused on Clinton’s email arrangements.

Clinton is set to appear before the select committee on October 22nd, her first appearance before the committee.

On Sunday, Gowdy said in a statement: “This committee always has been and will be focused on the four brave Americans we lost in Benghazi and providing the final, definitive accounting of the Benghazi terrorist attacks for the American people.”

What do you think?  Has the select committee headed by Gowdy inappropriately focused on Clinton? Or does it remain focused on capturing the truth about Benghazi? Comment below.

One Presidential Candidate Just Went After The Oregon Shooter’s Father With Some Brutal Words

The Oregon school shooter’s father has recently been speaking about the need for gun control.

He said in a recent media interview: “How on Earth could he compile 13 guns? How can that happen? They talk about gun laws, they talk about gun control. Every time something like this happens, they talk about it, and nothing is done.”

Now Republican presidential candidate Bobby Jindal is challenging the father in a recent blog post on his site. He wrote:

This killer’s father is now lecturing us on the need for gun control and he says he has no idea how or where his son got the guns. Of course he doesn’t know. You know why he doesn’t know? Because he is not, and has never been in his son’s life. He’s a complete failure as a father, he should be embarrassed to even show his face in public. He’s the problem here.

Much of Jindal’s post is focused on general cultural decay and how it led to the Oregon shooting. It is entitled, “We Fill Our Culture With Garbage, and We Reap the Result.”

Jindal writes: “If anyone is at all serious about changing any of this, they must address the root problems, and those are cultural decay, the glorification of evil, the devaluation of human life, the breakdown of the family, and specifically the complete abdication of fathers.”

Jindal is not done taking the father to task after his earlier statement, but he instead writes:

He brags that he has never held a gun in his life and that he had no idea that his son had any guns. Why didn’t he know? Because he failed to raise his son. He should be ashamed of himself, and he owes us all an apology. When he was asked what his relationship was with his son, he said he hadn’t seen him in a while because he lived with his mother. Case Closed.

Is Jindal right? Does the father bear some responsibility for his murderous son?

Revealed: The US Military Has A New Technology Straight Out Of A Superhero Movie

Will the U.S. military soon employ Iron Man-like technology on some of its front line units?

General Joe Votel, Commander of U.S. Special Operations Command, stated in a CNN interview that such armor is getting closer to becoming a reality for American soldiers.

The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, or TALOS, will feature liquid armor that can solidify upon command. It would be a battery-powered exoskeleton, capable of giving soldiers the protection they need on the battlefield. It would also reduce strain on the body and provide in-helmet technologies to improve communications and visibility.

Referring to front-line operators, General Joe Votel said that the objective would be, “To give that operator the advantage when he is most vulnerable.”

Votel also said: “This is a program that we started after we lost an operator on a mission. The first guy coming into a particular building was engaged and unfortunately was mortally wounded. And in the wake of that, we asked ourselves, ‘Couldn’t we do better in terms of protecting him, of giving him a better advantage when he’s at the most vulnerable point that we put our operators?’”

Navy Cmdr. Anthony Baker, the head of JATF- TALOS, speaking to reporters at the 2015 Special Operations Forces Industry Conference, said: “We have powered exoskeletons on contract being developed; the foundation is the exoskeleton. All I can say is ‘we are shooting for the vision,’ which calls for ‘increased armor protection, increased situational awareness, increased lethality, increased human performance.’”

He added: “It’s a very ambitious vision. There are a number of theories we are working on that are making significant progress.”

Pentagon spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Matt Allen said the Defense Department does “not know how much TALOS will cost,” but a report cited by former Oklahoma Republican Sen. Tom Coburn in his 2014 Wastebook put the price at $80 million.

This is less expensive than other similar military programs, many of which have cost hundreds of millions of dollars to develop.

The Reason ISIS Just Slaughtered 150 Females Couldn’t Be More Despicable

ISIS has gained a reputation for being one of the most barbarous organizations on the face of the planet.

A UN panel in 2014 said that ISIS atrocities amount to war crimes, basing its conclusions on more than 300 firsthand accounts.

Now Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights is claiming that ISIS murdered 150 women for refusing to marry or perform sexual acts with the terrorists.

The ministry stated: “At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage.”

This is not the first time ISIS has committed sexually related crimes. ISIS is also reported to runs brothels and keeps sex slaves.

One Yazidi sex slave begged the West to bomb the brothel where she was held to end her suffering.

ISIS also invites women from the West to perform “sexual jihad” for the terrorists.

ISIS issued a “sexual jihad” edict in June after capturing the city of Mosul, Iraq. Posters in the city read, “We call upon the people of this county to bring their unmarried girls so they can fulfill their duty in sex jihad for their warrior brothers in the city and anyone who will not appear will feel the full force of the sharia [Islamic law] upon him.”

Watch: Franklin Graham Just Gave Obama A Huge History Lesson That He Can’t Ignore

The Reverend Franklin Graham, Billy Graham’s son and the president and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, was recently interviewed by Fox News’ Todd Starnes regarding the Oregon school shooting.

Graham stated that Christians were martyred by the shooter. Graham noted that the shooter asked each person before he shot them if they were Christian, and, if they said yes, the shooter said “Get ready to meet your God in one second,” and then he pulled the trigger.

Graham said that not only are Christians are being martyred in the Middle East, but that they are now beginning to be martyred on U.S. soil.

He also stated that Barack Obama has been silent about domestic Christian martyrdom..

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson recently said that if he had been asked by the shooter whether or not he was a Christian, he would have attempted to turn the tables on the attacker.

When Graham was asked by Starnes what he would have done if put in the same situation, Graham said that you don’t know until you are in that situation, and that he, like Carson, would have sought to turn the tables on the shooter.

Graham also spoke about gun control, emphasizing that murder does not require a gun and would continue to exist even if all the world’s guns were taken away.

What do you think of Franklin Graham’s response to the Oregon shooting? Has Obama been silent on the fact of Christian martyrdom on U.S. soil?
