In the MSM this morning the following interview occurred:
"Maryland Democrat Elijah Cummings, the ranking member on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told CBS's Bob Schieffer Sunday that the committee's hearings into the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Libya were "turning into a witch hunt." (see "witch hunt below).
One must take into consideration the background of this "senior Democrat". First and foremost he is a card carrying member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Second, he is also the one who claimed that members of the Tea Party spat on him when he and his fellow communist sympathisers were walking arm and arm up the steps of the Capital building with Nancy Pelosi carrying her gavel the day of the Obamacare vote. Third, at the same rally -- "Recall that in March, 2010, when the Obamacare battle was raging, following a walk through a Tea Party rally outside the Capitol, black congressional leaders John Lewis and Emanuel Cleaver accused the Tea Party protesters there of spitting on them and calling them the “n-word.” Media outlets ran with it, but then Andrew Breitbart promised a $100,000 reward to the NAACP if anyone can show a video confirming the charge. The $100,000 was never paid.
Nanci Pelosi, John Lewis, Emanuel Cleaver as well as Elijah Cummings are all card carrying members of the "Congressional Progressive Caucus". This walk through a tea party crowd in solidarity to socialist values is striking in it's audacity. No longer are the Communist's fearing the stigma of association. More importantly the communists are at all level's of our elected government all the way to the top.
Allen West made reference to the CPC as communist's and the usual slander occurred from the usual CPC members using the "Witch Hunt" analogy -- McCarthyism is synonymous with the term "Witch Hunt":
CPC Co-chairmen Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) compared West’s remarks to those of former Sen. Joe McCarthy, who “divided Americans with name-calling and modern-day witch hunts that don’t advance policies to benefit people’s lives.” McCarthy was censured by the Senate for the tactics he used in his attempt to root out Soviet spies and sympathizers during the Cold War.
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee - Mission Statement
Our solemn responsibility is to hold government accountable to taxpayers, because taxpayers have a right to know what they get from their government. We will work tirelessly, in partnership with citizen-watchdogs, to deliver the facts to the American people and bring genuine reform to the federal bureaucracy. So explain how communist's are able to gain seats at the table of "oversight" of our own government?
The lesson's of 9/11 are of no consequence to the communist and their fellow travellers in the hallowed halls of congress. It doesn't fit with their vision of moving "Forward">>>>>>
