People have asked why there have not been more Benghazi Truth blog posts in recent months. The truth is, I have nothing to say until today. We like Trump. He can take care of himself and is doing just fine. Hillary is imploding and the Benghazi select committee appears to be doing a pretty good job.
But news is news, and this Thursday, Oct 22, 2015 Hillary testifies before the Benghazi Select Committee again, at 10 AM EST. You can watch it streaming live on cspan, CLICK HERE.
It seems like a lifetime ago, and yet it seems like yesterday that Kathy Amidon, myself and the other Tea Party fire Ants, fresh off the heels of our successful "Fox News Turn Right" boycotts, began to spearhead an effort to get congressional co-sponsors for a Benghazi Select Committee when now-retired House Representative Frank Wolf's House Resolution HR36 appeared stalled at only 35 co-sponsors - not nearly enough to get it put through and voted on when House Speaker Boehner declared repeatedly there would be no Benghazi Select Committee.
It took TPFA 17 months every single day (Christmas and New Years included) tweeting many thousands of tweets to House Representatives, over 100 graphics, 2 videos, dozens of blog posts, over 350 emails between Wolf's chief of staff and Kathy, and enduring relentless 24/7 harassment and worse of the Tea Party Fire Ants patriots by Twitter trolls who, literally IMO and that of others, criminally harassed, defamed and in some instances issued thinly veiled death threats demanding TPFA shut up (I understand a few received restraining orders and then stupidly ignored them. More on that later)
The Tea Party Fire Ants did not shut up.
So much has changed since then. The 35 co-sponsors eventually became 191 and according to Wolf's office, almost all came via the TPFA campaign. Many thanks on Twitter from ranking congressmen, mostly to Kathy, the Twitter leader of the Fire Ants. TPFA received 3 effusive thank you letters from Representative Wolf himself. The Benghazi Select Committee was established and remains in full swing, so damaging presidential candidate Hillary Clinton that it is now an open secret that Joe Biden may step in to the race to attempt to save the democrat party in next year's presidential election. We expect him to make the announcement on Thursday, the same day as the hearings, to give the mainstream media an excuse not to talk much about the hearings and replace Hillary's Horror with Smiling Joe.... we'll see. Representative Wolf, The Quiet Lion as we call him, has retired and we miss his voice on The Hill very terribly - he was perhaps the unsung hero of congress for his courage, his voice, his honesty and his integrity. Wolf, Dan Scandling and Wolf's entire office were Aces. 3 Benghazi witnesses toured the country hawking a book that proclaimed Obama and Hillary innocent while the rest of the witnesses were forced into silence and still no one knows who or where they are (though that story may be breaking, finally). Friends have been made, a couple have passed. Twitter 'safety' suspended Kathy Amidon several times for essentially non-existent infractions while those who relentlessly harassed her remained unscathed as they exchanged pleasantries and worse (More on that at a later date. Kathy has a formidable quality unsurprising for a patriot: she never forgets.) Unsurprisingly, I was suspended permanently from very obviously leftist Twitter for, essentially, it seems, being a conservative activist. So be it. Nothing can be eternal.
Hillary, obviously, appears absolutely terrified of the upcoming hearing - she can't stop angrily screaming and basically flipping out while insisting that Thursday's hearings won't damage her politically, but if they do, it's a vast right-wing conspiracy (again).
The GOP says there is nothing political about these hearings while Rep Kevin McCarthy stepped down from being the House speaker frontrunner after saying the hearings were political. Frankly, we hope they are political. It seems the only way to get justice in DC is to tie justice to a political advantage, and we want justice for the Benghazi slain. So if it means equal parts justice and Hillary being politically destroyed, well..... Benghazi did happen on her watch after all. What does she expect - a gold cup and a blue ribbon? A presidency, perhaps, as a reward for her one time only at bat as a leader which resulted in American diplomats being killed after they cried for help?
We expect real fireworks this time around for Hill on the Hill. We hope so, anyway. Many people within and along with the Fire Ants worked hard to see justice done, after all. Hats off to all the Fire Ants, friends and patriots all. Hillary would be answering to no one on Benghazi at this point if it had not been for you, the Tea Party Fire Ants. Though congress knows, the nation does not and probably never will know it, but this moment would not be happening, literally, if it were not for you. You are the stuff of which history by patriots is made. Thank you.

Speaks for itself.
Wolf letter 2
From our e-book, "Oh How bad The President Has been!"
There were plenty of exchanges with congressmen.
In the end, TPFA won.
People went crazy for these TPFA balloon launches in conservative states.
A small sampling of Kathy and Wolf's office emails apprising of updates on the HRes36 co-sponsorship status. This is hard work, folks!
Speaks for itself.
Tweeters unfriendly to TPFA even tried to hijack the TPFA hashtag! For all their efforts against TPFA, TPFA won: the Select Committee is happening.
Not all communication with congress was contentious. TPFA made many friends!
TPFA's defensive battles with Twitter trolls made 2-front-page stories on World Net Daily and elsewhere.
Wolf letter number 3. If memory serves, HRes 36 was at around 180 co-sponsors when this came in, 11 short of 191, at which point we knew the resolution had a bright future, and turned to Rice's HRes422 which was successful in only 5 weeks.
Tea Party Fire Ants, Hillary would not be testifying on Thursday if there was not a Benghazi Select committee, and there would be no Benghazi Select Committee if it had not been for your tireless efforts. Even Rep Wolf admitted that. Thank you again, my friends.
PHEW! As the song goes, "What a long, strange trip it's been!"
See you next time!
