About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

Trey Gowdy's News Conference In Reverse

Thanks to a long time subscriber for sending this link to SC Congressman Trey Gowdy's dramatic three minute news conference with the media – in reverse.  In this case Congressman Gowdy does not take questions from the media he asks them to the media regarding the four murders in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.
Congressman Gowdy will head the House Select Committee that will formally investigate the Benghazi matter that has been sidestepped & belittled by BO & his entire administration since its occurrence.  A handful of people like Judge Jeanine Pirro, Bill O'Reilly, & Congressman Gowdy have worked hard but have barely been able to keep the issue alive.
A congressional select committee is a committee usually created by resolution (in this case H. Res. 36) & is appointed to carry out a special function that is beyond the scope & authority of a regular standing committee.  In this case the special function is to investigate the murders of four Americans in Benghazi twenty months ago to the day. 
To put the timing of forming the Benghazi Select Committee into perspective please consider that the current Select Committee formed by the New Jersey Senate & Assembly to investigate Christie's involvement with traffic congestion on the George Washington Bridge, & Holder's criminal investigation of the matter, each took only a few days to come into existence once the incident came to light. 


  1. The Select Committee odds for success will be greatly enhanced if some credible BO Admin (past or present) comes forward with new information. For example perhaps there are some in the Admin who know whose idea it was to use the video fiction as the cause of Benghazi massacres, solely to lie in order to increase BO probability to win the election. What if it was BO? It would be no surprise. What if it was Hillary? Also no surprise with a focus on 2016 election.

    Without this it will be difficult for the select committee. The elite Alinskyites in BO admin and BO himself relish, maybe even enjoy stonewalling, propagandizing, personally attacking GOP, and relying in the media for support. I therefore pray there is a brave patriot who will call out whoever created the video argument to steal a presidential election or prepare for the 2016 election.

  2. Doug - I got your message about the Americans that were killed. I always ask myself why are the things in life that are important get the least noticed? It seems like this country is more interested in the stupid things and they get more TV time then the heroes.
