Panetta and Morell, noting the attack has been subject to many investigations already, said they welcome the latest one in the House. “If you look at the polling numbers a not insignificant percentage of the American people still have questions,” Morell said. Morell, who said he already has testified four times about Benghazi, said he is 100 percent confident the upcoming investigation will show that allegations “the intelligence community politicized its analysis” are false. Panetta, a former Central Coast congressman and Democratic Party stalwart, said there needs to be an investigation to lay out the full story to the public. “The problem has been sometimes bits and pieces of information keep coming out” that raise more questions, he said. “Obviously there is a concern whether it’s going to be a political effort to target an issue for a campaign,” Panetta said. “I hope Democrats participate, and it really is a legitimate effort.”MORE@HotAir
If someone were to warn a drug addict about the dangers of abusing illicit substances, no one would label them as hateful. However, when the same principle is applied to homosexual behavior, the daggers come out and the “anti-gay,” “homophobic” or “hater” epithets are angrily and aggressively hurled about.
The typical LGBTQ response to the above analogy is to claim that illegal drug usage is a choice, but homosexuality is not. As volitional beings, though, we most certainly have the ability to control how, when and with whom we are sexually intimate. Therefore, the most loving thing that a Christian can do is to tell the truth and steer homosexuals away from a harmful lifestyle — more appropriately referred to as a deathstyle.

Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, sent a Mother’s Day greeting via Twitter on Sunday.
Richards’ tweet came as a recent study found that abortion is the most consequential issue determining the socioeconomic and demographic composition of the United States.
Professor James Studnicki and his colleagues at the University of North Carolina found that induced abortions account for more years of potential life lost than all other causes of death combined, and the black abortion rate and rate of years of life lost to abortion are more than three times that of whites.

In bold, high definition, if you slowed the frame down enough, you could see the spray of spittle flying across the broadcast table at his fellow co-hosts on-the-air.Bob Beckel, a prominent democrat consultant, and co-host of The Five on Fox News was turning beat red. "Who cares?" He offered as his bottom line as to whether the White House covered up Benghazi or not. White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, earlier that day got quite smarmy and dismissive when he claimed the incidents of 9.11.12 (to which he labeled current interest in as a "conspiracy theory") "happened a long time ago." Adam Schiff, a democratic Congressman, called the effort to set up a select committee to look into the matter, "a colossal waste of time." Nancy Pelosi, the democratic leader in the House, referred to the emails that did establish a White House cover-up as, "Diversion, subterfufge, Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi. Why aren't we talking about something else?" What is clear, as demonstrated above, is that from the White House, to congressional leaders, to the pundit chattering class--democrats have circled the wagons. They do so to attempt to force the other political party, the media, and the American people themselves to move on, and put any further inquiry into the matter out of consideration. They also make a massive implication in doing so. Any further investigation going forward will be cast by them as a purely politically stunted witch-hunt that can not be trusted. (Almost exclusively for the reason that they imply, that Democrats have moved on hence so should the nation.) On Friday I found that posture and premise to be rather astounding.

A decision by the U.S. Supreme Court Monday deemed that prayers said before town meetings are not in violation of the Constitution, Reuters reports.
In a Rochester, New York suburb, a Jewish resident and an atheist resident filed a suit against the town of Greece stating they were made "uncomfortable" by town officials who "overwhelmingly" picked Christian members of the public to recite prayers before meetings, states the report. Despite this revelation, however, the town's policy is to not single out one religion over another.The court maintained that prayer is fundamental and historical to America and in no way violates the First Amendment, even if it is exclusively one religion. The tight 5-4 decision indicates the conservative/liberal fault line within the court on the issue. Chief Justice John Roberts, Justices Samuel Alito Antonin Scalia, and Clarence Thomas joined the court's majority opinion Justice Anthony Kennedy in favor of the Christian prayers. Kennedy wrote:
The town of Greece does not violate the First Amendment by opening its meetings with prayer that comports with our tradition and does not coerce participation by nonadherents. So long as the town maintains a policy of nondiscrimination, the Constitution does not require it to search beyond its borders for non-Christian prayer givers in an effort to achieve religious balancing...That nearly all of the congregations in town turned out to be Christian does not reflect an aversion or bias on the part of town.
These ceremonial prayers strive for the idea that people of many faiths may be united in a community of tolerance and devotion. Our tradition assumes that adult citizens, firm in their own beliefs, can tolerate and perhaps appreciate a ceremonial prayer delivered by a person of a different faith.Read full story on www.truthrevolt.org
