Let’s prepare lunch and gather at my place. Manny is quite anxious to meet all of you. Today we will be creating a Chicken Vegetable Stew. You will need 1 chopped onion, 4 skinless, boneless breast halves-cut into small pieces, ½ pound baby carrots, 4 potatoes, ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon turmeric, 1 tablespoon tomato paste, ½ cup water, ¼ teaspoon garlic powder and ½ teaspoon pepper.
In a large pot, place the onion, chicken, carrots and potatoes. Add the salt and turmeric. Dissolve the tomato paste in water and add to the pot. Add garlic powder and pepper.
Cook over low heat for 1 to ½ hours. Bring lunch over to my place. Manny and I will greet you at the door. Please don’t be alarmed by his appearance. He really is a great guy!
Hello everyone. I appreciate lunch and the pleasure of your company. I wish I could say the same for the Democrats who sit on the House Oversight Committee investigating the Benghazi terror attack. The purpose of the hearings was quite clear to me. Your representatives were trying to discover the truth about Benghazi. Herein lies the problem. Only some of the committee members were interested in the truth. The Democrats were there to prevent the story from emerging. They were there to protect your president and his administration.
The leader of this attempt to squash the truth was the Ranking Member Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md). Although he gave lip service to the three whistle-blowers saying that he was glad they were there, his words and his actions said just the opposite.
The three brave men who came forward to tell the story of Benghazi deserved better than Rep. Cummings and his colleagues. Gregory Hicks, Mark Thompson and Eric Nordstrom conducted themselves with dignity. Their stories were compelling, entirely believable and moving. These men have served your country proudly under several administrations. They came before the committee to set the record straight and in my humble opinion they succeeded.
Benghazi is a dark stain upon this administration. What happened there needs to be dealt with swiftly. The families of those killed and the nation want to see those responsible for the attacks and those responsible for covering up the truth brought to justice. It’s time.
Let us pray…Manny
