Susan Rice leaked Russian Facebook ads to cover her own sins

Published

on

For days now, I’ve seen numerous headlines, especially from the Washington Post, on how Barack Obama advised Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg about, foreign infiltration of Facebook and disinformation campaigns. They claim that Obama was warning Zuckerberg about fake news when they met in Lima, Peru following the 2016 election. What a load of propaganda. So, all of a sudden Obama is the hero who rides in and rescues and warns Zuckerberg of the evils of Russia? I’m not buying it. Not even a little bit.

Background

This story is just full of fake news itself. The original tale related how Obama confronted Zuckerberg about Russia, but that was debunked. Both Fox News and Axios reported that was a lie. Obama didn’t even bring up Russia or fake news in general.

In reality, Facebook has seized this opportunity to crack down on what they call “fake news.” Utilizing the Russian fake news ads on Facebook as a strawman to crack down on conservative sites. Facebook’s logic seems to be that Russia is controlling politics and spreading fake news in union with conservative sites. Thus, Facebook’s elaborate excuse and convenient lie to censor conservative media.

But why all this now? The Washington Post is notorious for propaganda, but why this and Obama now?

Erick Erickson at The Resurgent has a source that tells him that Susan Rice accompanied Obama into that meeting with Zuckerberg. I read a lot of sources on the web, but one of the ones I trust the most and have never been disappointed by is Erick Erickson. In fact, he’s been right when I’ve been wrong a number of times, so this caught my attention.

Susan Rice and Samantha Power are both in the hot seat currently for unmasking hundreds of individuals having to do with the Trump campaign and Russian connections – which at the very least was unethical and could very well be illegal. What does a corrupt Marxist do when backed into a corner? Well, they throw someone under the bus. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if Susan Rice and Team Obama threw Zuckerberg under the bus to save their own hides.

Exclusive: Sources Say Susan Rice Leaked Against Facebook To Cover Her Own Russia Sins | Erick Erickson, The Resurgent

http://theresurgent.com/exclusive-sources-say-susan-rice-leaked-against-facebook-to-cover-her-own-russia-sins/Well a source tells me that when the conversation took place the person who accompanied Obama in this meeting was none other than Susan Rice.

The Obama Administration alums and Clinton campaign are obsessed with Russia and how they claim they stole the election and need to concoct theories for why Donald Trump is President besides the fact that they were rejected. The latest one is that it must’ve been $100,000 in Facebook ads that did it (a tiny fraction of the billion dollar Democrat ad machine). So Susan Rice and the Obama team point the finger at Zuckerberg to their friends in the Washington Post rather than come to terms with what really happened.

Wait-Susan Rice Leaked The Facebook/Russia Story To Give Obama Some Cover? – Matt Vespa

https://townhall.com/tipsheet/mattvespa/2017/09/28/waitsusan-rice-leaked-the-facebookobama-story-n2387566Folks, there’s a reason why Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) called Susan Rice the “Typhoid Mary” of the Obama administration on foreign policy. Whenever something goes wrong; she’s there. She’s always there.

Axios reported that the paper updated its online version of the story with an editor’s note saying, “This story has been updated with an additional response from Facebook.”

It was updated so much that WaPo pulled the word “Russia” from the headline, changing it to, “Obama tried to give Zuckerberg a wake-up call over fake news on Facebook.”

Embarrassment as Washington Post corrects its ‘scoop’ about Obama, Facebook and Russia | Fox News

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/09/26/embarrassment-as-washington-post-corrects-its-scoop-about-obama-facebook-and-russia.html“When we updated the story with Facebook’s additional response, we also added the text ‘did not single out Russia specifically’ to foreshadow the Schrage statement, which appears further down in the story. When we added that clause we should have made the attribution clear and we’ve modified the line to do so. Here’s how it now appears: ‘although Facebook representatives say the president did not single out Russia specifically,’” a Washington Post spokeswoman told Fox News.


Analysis

This is old hat for Rice, who made a similar move on Benghazi when they blamed the terrorist attack on a video. That was another lie. I don’t think it’s in these people; to tell the truth. Since everyone is still obsessed with all things Russia and the Left keeps pointing the finger at Trump, they decided to use it to their advantage. Gee, they think just like communists because they are communists. Imagine that. And as I have said many times, there is far more collusion with Russia to be proven on the Left than the Right. That doesn’t mean Trump is clean by any means, but there’s no proof of collusion on his part. With Clinton, you had not only the uranium deal, you had Skolkovo, which should have also landed her in prison.

Facebook took over $100,000 in cash from Russia for political ads. The funny part about that was that Russia took stances on both the left and the right. They even placed ads for Black Lives Matter on Facebook. Their goal was chaos and to sow division. I said at the time of the election that Russia didn’t care who was elected, they had a contingency plan for both and it looks like I was right. Yay me. However, that amount is minuscule compared to what the billions, Democrats spent on ads. All this finger pointing by the left at Facebook is a distraction and deflection on a massive scale.

The reality of the situation is Obama, Clinton, Rice and the whole gang ignored our biggest threats for eight years. What I call the New Axis of Evil: Russia, China, Iran and North Korea. Obama tried to schmooze with Putin, who considered him a weak fool. Putin thought the same thing of Clinton, only she could be bought more easily. Remember the ludicrous ‘reset button,’ which was just embarrassing. Then you have Obama’s treasonous ‘more flexible’ comment to the Russians. They never said a peep about Russia trying to impact our elections during that time. But this isn’t a new thing for the Russians. They have been meddling in our elections for decades. The Cold War never ended; it shifted.

Obama and Rice were repeatedly warned about Russia, specifically in 2014. And they did nothing. Obama was too busy bowing to the Mullahs of Iran to notice. Even as bad as Obama’s national security team was, they had all this intelligence at their fingertips. They already knew the Russians had been probing us and our elections. But they were guilty of dereliction of duty. The Obamas were too busy on vacations and partying with celebrities to care about what the Russians were doing, and our enemies knew it. They did nothing but embolden our enemies, and they let them infiltrate vital areas in our government and across our nation. That’s communist infiltration, and we are living with it now.

Final Thoughts

So, Susan Rice and Barack Obama will blame others as they always do, when it was on their watch that the spies walked through the front door; a door they held open for them. Susan Rice is an enemy within and will do anything to save herself. The Russians are just a means of trying to do so. Meanwhile, the Russians are still at it, and no one is stopping them. The enemies from within and from without are having a field day at our expense.

Liz Wheeler on the most disgusting part of the Jussie Smollett scandal

Liz Wheeler on the most disgusting part of the Jussie Smollett scandal

There are plenty of things about the Jussie Smollett scandal that should disgust us. The instant reaction by celebrities, politicians, and the media is right there at the top, especially when we consider how many are now saying, “let’s wait for the facts.” The notion that a successful gay black man thought it appropriate to make himself seem like a victim is also up there.

As One America News Network’s Liz Wheeler points out, we should also be disgusted that Smollett chose this victim status over being a strong leader and role model for less privileged black and gay people who could have looked up to him for his strength instead of now being scornful of his weakness.

What does that say about America when the left tries so hard to build the narrative that everything is wrong, they’re unwilling to recognize the real problems that are plaguing America. Why? Because they’re the biggest part of the problem.

Leftist media pushes back on Green New Deal criticism

Leftist media pushes back on Green New Deal criticism

It’s been an up-and-down couple of weeks for proponents of the Green New Deal. Before details were released, it was already being heralded as the greatest thing since President Obama’s election. Then, the details came out and even many on the left were taken aback by the ambitious and incoherent provisions of the deal as detailed in a FAQ section on Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s government web page.

But that was just a draft. They took it down. At least that was the story.

Unfortunately for proponents, they were caught a little flat-footed as questions started pouring in about, well, all of it. Even if we dismiss the less-draconian concepts such as eliminating air travel or the less-sane ideas like taking care of those who are unwilling to work, the left is still stuck with a proposal that the most frugal estimates put at costing around $7 trillion while other’s consider the decade-long cost to be in the HUNDREDS of trillions of dollars.

This is, of course, ludicrous. There’s not enough money in the entire world to pay for the proposal if its cost is somewhere between the lowest and highest estimates, but that hasn’t stopped leftist media from regrouping. Now that the dust has settled a little bit, they’re doing everything they can to recommit to this concept. It’s not that they suddenly believe in this fairy tale. It’s that they don’t want this to be the issue Republicans attack in the 2020 elections.

One article in particular that I read from CNN (yes, sometimes I need to see what the other side is thinking) really struck me for its honesty about the situation. Though I stopped reading it in paragraph two when it referred to “non-partisan” PolitiFact, I went back to it just now to digest the awfulness fully (see the sacrifices I make for our readers!).

To be clear, much of what this article says is correct. It asserts the GOP will take the tenets of the Green New Deal and use it to scare voters into thinking it’s even worse than Obamacare. From 2010 through 2016, Republicans attacked Obamacare incessantly and it worked, giving them the House in 2010, the Senate in 2014, and the White House in 2016. Unfortunately, they stopped there and didn’t actually go after Obamacare with the same fervor they held in their campaign rhetoric and now the Democrats have turned the issue on its head.

But here’s the thing. Obamacare may have been bad, but the Green New Deal truly is worse. It’s not even close. Even if we take at face value the notion that the Green New Deal is simply an ambitious framework around which real legislation can be forged, we have to look at the core issues entailed in order to see the true damage it can do. This is a socialist document. It’s a call for the same levels of insanity that drive the Medicare-for-All movement. Within its frivolous attempts to change perceptions of air travel, cows, and job creation is a deep-rooted desire to convert Americans to needing more government.

NOQ Report needs your support.

The Green New Deal represents the far-left’s desire to make more American dependent on government. At the same time, it aims to increase the levels of dependency for those who are already in need of assistance. It wants Democrats to latch their wagons on the notion that if we become a militantly environmentalist nation, that will serve the dual purpose of giving us fulfillment while saving the planet.

I believe most leftist journalists understand this, but they see in the ridiculous framework a path through which Republicans can be defeated wholesale in 2020 as long as the left can control the narrative surrounding the Green New Deal. They fear another Obamacare counterinsurgency that would wipe out the anti-Trump gains they made in 2018, so they’ve adopted a stance that the Green New Deal isn’t as bad as Fox News says it is. Meanwhile, they’re doing everything they can to say, “look over here and not at the Green New Deal.”

The politics behind what the Green New Deal represents is more in play than the tenets of the proposal itself, at least in the eyes of leftist media. It’s not that they want to promote the concept. They simply don’t want the concept to derail their party in the next election.

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as ‘sweetheart,’ prompting zero outrage

Louis Farrakhan refers to Ilhan Omar as sweetheart prompting zero outrage

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan referred to Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as “Sweetheart” as he addressed her during a speaking engagement on Sunday. He apparently caught his faux pas and immediately justified the remark, but at that point the moniker which many consider to be sexist or misogynistic had already been noted.

Nevertheless, it didn’t cause the stir one might expect. As a far-left progressive, Omar is known for being a feminist icon on Capitol Hill even though she hasn’t been in office for a full two months yet. As our EIC noted, the lack of a rebuke was because of the source, not because she now feels it’s okay to refer to her as “sweetheart.”

The statement came as Farrakhan was telling Omar she shouldn’t be sorry for the statements she made last week about Israel, AIPAC, and Jewish influence in Washington DC, particularly over Republicans.

In a world where consistency was still considered a virtue, followers of Omar would be wondering why she’s not expressing outrage over the belittling reference from a powerful man. But the world isn’t consistent and Farrakhan always gets a pass.
