Adam Schiff been spewing lies along Time !
( But it really was not until the 2014 hearing by the House Select Committee on Benghazi that Schiff came into his own as one of the Democrats’
leading attack dogs and cover-up artists. Due to the failure of previous House committees (including the House Intelligence Committee Schiff sat on)
to pierce the cover-up erected by Obama and Secretary of State Clinton, Speaker Boehner created a House Select Committee in 2014 to re-investigate the
Four Americans were killed by Islamic terrorists as they defended an obscure diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, and the evidence was overwhelming
that the Obama/Clinton regime lied about it in order to protect Hillary’s reputation as she prepared to run for president. Clinton’s team claimed
falsely the attack was due to a reaction to an “anti-Muslim” video, and Schiff defended that lie. Indeed, Schiff was so worried about the findings
of this new committee that he opposed its creation, claiming it was a “colossal waste of time” and a “waste of taxpayer resources,” perhaps
the only time in Schiff’s career he ever showed concern for the taxpayer. Nevertheless, Schiff accepted an appointment to the committee. We now know
Schiff’s role on this committee was clearly to deflect from the real issues and to protect Hillary Clinton at all costs. He stated that “there was
nothing more the military could have done that night that would have saved their lives, nor was there any political interference with rescue
efforts.” But we know Schiff was hiding the truth because a number of Special Forces operators testified that a rescue could have been undertaken
but were told not to do so. Moreover, overwhelming evidence was presented that the State Department ignored requests for additional security
improvements to the compound but, Schiff, again, loudly disputed this.
The most shameful action by Schiff was his attack upon the testimony of three CIA contractors who confirmed there was indeed a “stand-down” order
given three times that delayed the rescuers. Indeed, the rescuers had to defy an order to come to the aid of those under attack. Had the rescuers been
allowed to depart earlier, four Americans may be alive today. Nevertheless, Shifty went on the offense, claiming the CIA contractors were lying in
order to sell a book three of them had authored. One of the contractors, Kris Paronto, responded, “it’s difficult for me because you’re calling
a Ranger, a SEAL and three Marines liars.” But that’s Schiff’s MO; protect Hillary Clinton at all costs, even if it meant defaming Americans who
put their lives on the line. At this point, Schiff probably assumed Hillary was going to be the next president and rumors were rife he was hoping to
play a role in her administration. In any case, the Benghazi hearings established Schiff’s reputation as a “Party first, America last”
After Schiff’s shameful behavior with the Benghazi hearings, his star began to rise with the left and he pandered to them with a series of strange
legislative initiatives. He went on a crusade to persuade the Census Bureau to collect data about “Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender”
individuals, which, conservatives argue, could then be used by a future leftist government to set the stage for legislation creating job or university
admission quotas for LGBT people. But do we really want the government to have on file the sexual inclinations of all Americans?
He introduced a bill called the “Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act” that made gun “manufacturers, sellers and interest
groups” liable for gun violence. Yes, you read it right. In Schiff’s bizarre far left universe, victims of gun shootings should have the right to
sue the gun seller, the manufacturer, and, for good measure, any group that promotes gun rights like the NRA. Not only was the measure insane and
unconstitutional, but the precedent it set would have been horrendous. What about knife manufacturers? Should we go after baseball bat manufacturers
because bats have been used by criminals?
Schiff fancies himself as an intelligence expert even though he has no background in intelligence whatsoever and appears to tote the leftwing line —
“Terrorism, what terrorism?” — on all things terror-related. In 2015, when Islamic terrorists attacked an after work Christmas party in San
Bernardino — a few miles from his district — killing 14 and injuring 22, it was obvious from the beginning who was responsible: Islamic
terrorists. The Islamic couple, both of Pakistani descent, had used bomb technology commonly used by al Qaeda and had spent time in Saudi Arabia, most
likely undergoing training.
Nevertheless, Schiff blindly followed Obama’s lead and sent out a statement that never used the word “Islam” and suggested the mass murder could
be “workplace violence.” While the bodies were still warm, Schiff, like Obama, called for gun control, announcing that, “There are many
reasonable proposals in Congress that would, without question, reduce gun violence and mass shootings in America.” What? California has all kinds of
gun control laws and so does all of Europe, but that hasn’t stopped or even slowed down Islamic terrorism. Note to Schiff: Terrorists don’t obey
gun control laws.
Indeed, when it comes to Islamic terrorism, Schiff’s actions give the impression he does not consider it a serious problem, which is a bit bizarre
considering he was raised Jewish. When Obama was preparing to sign a treaty with Iran that gave the Mullahs billions of dollars and allows them to
eventually produce nuclear weapons, Schiff, in typical fashion, publicly criticized the deal but then announced he would support it. Iran is the
world’s leading funder of Islamic terrorism that often targets Israel and Jews, a fact that didn’t seem to deter Schiff from supporting this
agreement. Clearly, he decided it was more important to support the Obama agenda, even at the expense of his own faith.
After Trump won in November, the organized left had to concoct a reason for its embarrassing defeat. Its donors were hopping mad, its grassroots were
demanding action and, most importantly, they needed to create a reason to convince voters that Trump’s election was illegitimate and to win voters
back in 2020. The left’s leadership came up with the Trump-Russia collusion conspiracy theory, a strange one given the left’s affinity for Russia
since 1917. But it was perfect for Schiff, so when the Intelligence Committee announced hearings, he was ready to roll. What better way to give
credibility to a phony narrative than to hold hearings and drag it on for months.
Indeed, for most of the last two months, Schiff seemed to control the media coverage of the committee, spinning an irresponsible conspiracy theory
about Trump colluding with Russia to alter the election results, even though the FBI, DNI, and NSA had all testified they had not found a shred of
evidence to back up that allegation.
Nevertheless, Schiff continued to repeat these phony allegations. He smeared one-time Trump advisor Roger Stone because Stone tweeted a hacker who
claimed to have hacked the DNC five weeks earlier. Stone had nothing to do with the hack and was just collecting info for a blog he writes. Nor does
Stone have anything to do with any “Russian collusion.” )
