The Academy Awards ceremony is tonight, and with it comes the shocking revelations of an untold Benghazi scandal.
The infamous September 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, by over a hundred and fifty militants of the al-Qaeda affiliate Ansar al-Sharia jihadist group that killed four Americans has been immortalized in a trashy action movie by explosion pornographer Michael Bay.
The sound mixers for 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi were nominated for an Oscar, but one of them had his nomination dramatically stripped away.
It was discovered that sound engineer Greg P. Russell had been making phone calls to other members of the Academy in order to persuade them to vote for his movie, in violation of Academy regulations.
Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs issued this statement on the matter:
The decision was prompted by the discovery that Russell had called his fellow members of the Sound Branch during the nominations phase to make them aware of his work on the film, in direct violation of a campaign regulation that prohibits telephone lobbying… The Board of Governors’ decision to rescind Mr. Russell’s nomination was made after careful consideration. The Academy takes very seriously the Oscars voting process and anything—no matter how well-intentioned—that may undermine the integrity of that process.
The revocation of this nomination for Russell has obvious and hilarious parallels to the current scandal engulfing the White House over the Trump campaign’s potentially treasonous secret communications with Russian officials.
Since the House Oversight Committee wasted six years and nearly ten million dollars of taxpayer money investigating the Benghazi attacks and conducting a partisan witch-hunt of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the matter, we wonder if they will want to launch a new investigation into the Case of The Missing Oscar.
After all, Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz just investigated a national park over the creation of a mailbox. They’ve already proven they’re willing to throw time and energy into the most pedestrian of issues in lieu of investigating the President and his team for treason.
This is just proof that George Soros and the Obama cartel paid off the Academy to protest the Benghazi movie.
