Former Florida Rep. Allen West said Wednesday that Congress needs to appoint a special committee to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012, fatal attacks on America’s consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

“We’ve got a lot of questions,” he said, on Fox News. “This is why I believe we have to have that select committee to get to the bottom of these incidents. Right now, we have had this investigation across five different committees in the House of Representatives. We have not gotten anywhere.”

Mr. West suggested a committee with subpoena powers – similar to what’s been proposed by Virginia Rep. Frank Wolf for months.

“If we have one focused committee with subpoena powers that can get the survivors from Benghazi, get some of these CIA agents and operatives. And I think you need to depose Hillary Clinton and bring her back and talk about why Ambassador Chris Stevens was in Benghazi on the 11th anniversary of September 11,” he said, Newsmax reported.

The Idea You Can Influence That Which You Refuse To Participate In – by Scott Cooper

Written by Scott Cooper

I have felt since last summer, and I still believe that our Presidential nominee would not be decided until the actual convention in August in Tampa.  That being the case, there are two important points for my friends who don’t pay attention or engage until the last minute.

1.       If you hope to have influence in that process, you need to get involved in the GOP at your local level.  If you are not yet engaged – you are running out of time.  In Virginia every locality is having Mass Meetings, where local leadership will be decided.  At those meetings it will also be decided which Delegates will go to our State Convention.  That will lead to the process of who will be chosen to represent you at the National Convention in Tampa.

Click here to learn about your localities “Calls” or “Mass Meetings” and plan to not only attend, but bring as many conservative friends as you can.

2.      You cannot influence that which you refuse to participate in.  Many tell me, I simply do not have time to attend these meetings.  My response – when our freedom is gone, I do not want to tell my grandkids that they do not have the freedom their parents had, because I was too busy to attend the meetings required to retain their freedom.

10/1/11 Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA) Addressing Govt regs that cost private-sector jobs…….

Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) delivers this week’s address, detailing government regulations that cost private-sector jobs and impede economic growth. This fall, as part of the House Republican Plan for America‘s Job Creators, the House will continue working on legislation to stop excessive and unreasonable regulations. These common-sense bills will save thousands of American jobs and restore the confidence our job creators need to grow and expand our economy. It’s time to get our country working again.

FROM Speaker John Boehner: In the Weekly Republican Address, Rep. Morgan Griffith (R-VA) says President Obama “should call on the Democrat-led Senate” to follow the House and pass two bipartisan bills protecting jobs from excessive government regulations. While the president thinks America has lost its “competitive edge,” Rep. Griffith says these bills represent another “opportunity to widen our common ground and do whatever we can to get government out of the way so our economy can return to creating jobs.”

Gone “Soft?” Or Threatened By Tax Hikes, Excessive Regulations, & Excessive Spending?

  • President Obama says America has gone “a little soft” and lost its “competitive edge.” But the reality is – as Speaker Boehner recently said – job creators are paralyzed by “the constant threat of new taxes, out-of-control spending, and unnecessary regulation from a government that is always micromanaging, meddling, and manipulating.”
  • As a consequence of the Democrats’ Dodd-Frank law you might soon be paying monthly debit card fees. Click here to see how Washington’s job-crushing policies are also leading to higher health care premiums and higher gas prices for families and small businesses.

Keeping the Pledge: Republicans Focused on Creating Jobs, Changing the Way Congress Works

  • Reps. Steve Chabot (R-OH) and Geoff Davis (R-KY) asked the White House to support H.R. 2681, which requires Washington to develop “more balanced and effective” rules that “protect public health and the environment without imposing unnecessary economic harm on American businesses and workers.” Read the letter here.
  • Opening resource-rich areas of Alaska to new energy production will create jobs and address high gas prices. Learn more here from a recent Natural Resources Committee hearing.
  • The House Clerk updated its website with better access to real-time information, reflecting the majority’s pledge to make Congress more open and accountable. Check it out here.
