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.

Our List of Demands for the Conservation of Liberty – Part II

Our List of Demands for the Conservation of Liberty Part II

Leftists incessantly issue lists of demands for the restriction of Liberty, It’s time to reverse the trend towards freedom.

This is our second part of our series of what we on the Pro-Liberty Right want for the preservation of Liberty. Part I is here.

6. The Left needs to stop trying to control private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. [aka ‘enhanced’ or ‘Universal’]

If there is one constant in the Liberty grabber universe, it’s that half of them are incessantly calling for gun confiscation while the rest deny they are calling for gun confiscation. They also love to parrot the line that it would be impossible to round-up everyone’s guns as a way of deflecting the issue. Except that those on the Pro-liberty side thought the same thing in the UK and Australia. Their Liberty grabber nightmare began with gun registration, under the solemn promise that it wouldn’t lead to gun confiscation. [Sound familiar?] Then of course at the next occasion of a serious crisis, this registration data was used for gun confiscation.

The fact is gun confiscation takes several precursor steps, the most critical being the assertion of government control over private property with Intergalactic Background Checks. Curiously enough, the Liberty grabbers tend to want language inserted into these laws mandating the reportage of lost or stolen firearms. Those types of rules are of primary importance only if the point of these measures is to turn them into a registration scheme.

7. The Liberty Grabber Left needs to stop pushing for even more controls on freedom.

It is also axiomatic that Leftists will exploit any opportunity to start ever-expansive controls over Liberty. The Left is a virtual fountainhead of new and more creative ways of clamping down on freedom. Having run out of new and improved ways of making it difficult, embarrassing and expensive to buy a firearm [While also lying about it at the same time] the Left has moved on to imposing controls over the purchase of ammunition. Then of course they also are making demands on how these are stored.

8. Stop attacking those who only wish to defend themselves.

There is nothing more loathsome than Leftists who excel at hurling insults at the country’s estimated 150 Million innocent gun owners. We’ve been labelled with almost everything from being Terrorists to baby killers for wanting nothing more than to be able to defend our families and ourselves.

Those who incessantly work overtime to demonize the innocent should keep one word in mind: Deterrence. The widespread ownership of weapons in most areas deters criminals since they don’t know who can fight back. This also explains why places with tight controls on Liberty tend to have higher crime rates. Curiously enough, for people who love the term ‘Commonsense’ they certainly don’t seem to well versed in it.

9. The Left needs to become educated about that which they want to control.

Granted, it might be too much to expect the Liberty Grabbers from knowing the difference between a direct impingement and gas piston actuation, but they should at least know the difference between a semi-auto and select fire. Nothing screams uninformed more than someone who confuses a clip with a magazine or some who uses them interchangeably in a claim that one can fire off 30 rounds in half a second.

Lack of knowedge is usually a negative in most cases, but in the realm of Liberty Control, the Leftists wear it as a badge of honour.

10. The Left needs to stop lying about guns.

We made these two separate items to prove a point. While some gaffes of the Liberty grabber elite are relatively harmless, there are those that are a danger to Liberty. It should go without saying that we live in an age in which the knowledge of the world is literally at one’s fingertips. There is no rational excuse for a lack of knowledge on the most rudimentary aspects of certain subjects. By the same token, there is no excuse for the propagation of deliberate false impressions and Lies particularly on the subject of self-defense.

One of the most infamous examples stems from the creation the phrase “Assault Weapon”:

The weapons’ menacing looks, coupled with the public’s confusion over fully automatic machine guns versus semi-automatic assault weapons—anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun—can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.

The Takeaway.

The nation’s Left has gone on for years demanding compromises on the part of the Pro-Liberty Right. It is time that they step up to the plate and show they can be ‘bi-partisan’ for once. These steps aren’t really that extraordinary, in fact they merely bolster Liberty. Some Leftists still purport to be Liberal, supporting these items would go a long way in showing that is truly the case.

Idiotic mainstream media feeds Trump the goodwill motherload

Idiotic mainstream media feeds Trump the goodwill motherload

The tenacity by which mainstream media wants to stop President Trump is comical. It’s even dangerous at times. Sadly, they keep shooting themselves in the foot by giving their target all the ammunition he needs to continue taking them down.

Their latest attempt at defending freedom of the press and bashing the President for attacking it comes in the form of a coordinated attack. That statement alone is enough to make more people realize their bias and justify Trump’s claims that the press is the enemy. They can attempt to spin it any way they want, but the results will be the same. They’re helping Trump.

Coast to coast, and in between, local news is standing up to Trump’s press attacks

https://money.cnn.com/2018/08/15/media/newspaper-editorials-free-press-trump/index.htmlFrom The Martha’s Vineyard Times to the Dallas Morning News… from the Yankton County Observer in South Dakota to the Bangor Daily News in Maine… the papers will all run editorials as part of an effort first proposed by the Boston Globe earlier this month.

Marjorie Pritchard, the Globe’s deputy editorial page editor, told CNN that more papers were still “signing on” for the effort as of Wednesday afternoon.

This smells bad. I’m not a Trump supporter, yet I grimace at the attempt by mainstream media to take him down. It’s not that he doesn’t deserve it; it isn’t his place to lead the charge against mainstream media. That’s my job, and yours. Instead, the President should be spending time gaining a better understanding of the effects of tariffs and learning how to handle foreign affairs like a statesman. Unhinged journalists and kneeling football players are below the office of the President of the United States.

Nevertheless, he attacks. They attack back. Rinse. Repeat.

This is very similar to what National Review attempted in early 2016 when they gathered a bunch of respected conservative journalists to speak out against the President. Titled “Against Trump,” the issue had dozens of conservatives giving their reasons why we shouldn’t support Trump to be the Republican nominee. It failed miserably. His popularity skyrocketed and it helped to seal the fate of candidates who tried to prevent his ascension.

The current situation is worse. Instead of dozens, it’s hundreds of editorial writers and publications making a concerted effort to expose Trump and his backwards perspectives on freedom of the press. Instead of pulling the nation against him, they will only plant people more firmly in their own beliefs. Trump detractors will get a false sense of victory while Trump supporters will say, “See, he was right all along.”

No minds will be changed by these hundreds of articles. Worldviews will be solidified. More attacks from the White House against mainstream media will be justified. Valid complaints about the President by all journalists will be tainted. In short, the media is handing the President the best present they can give him. They’re proving his point.

Goodwill is generated for people who are perceived as being treated unfairly. By “ganging up” on Trump with coordinated attacks, mainstream media is making even lukewarm Trump supporters much more sympathetic towards him.

The worst part about all this is there are legitimate complaints about the President that will be diminished by mainstream media’s coordinated attacks. They are adding fuel to the fake news fire. Maybe it makes them feel good now, but it’s counterproductive at best.

Omarosa is a victim, but not the way she paints it

Omarosa is a victim but not the way she paints it

If one were to listen to Omarosa Manigault Newman’s narrative about her time at the White House and take it at face value, she’s just another person cashing in on her 15 minutes by trying to sell books. She’s been all across the airwaves playing the victim card. Unfortunately for her, the card she’s playing isn’t the card most people are reading.

Republicans and conservative media are painting her as a disgruntled former employee selling nothingburgers while Democrats and mainstream media view her as a betrayer who got betrayed and now wants back into the left-wing clubhouse. Neither side is giving her much room to rant, often calling out her claims as not being clear cut evidence of any wrongdoing on the administration’s part.

Omarosa releases recording of her firing, looks worse as a result

https://noqreport.com/2018/08/12/omarosa-releases-recording-firing-looks-worse-result/Even leftist journalist Chuck Todd had to point out there’s nothing out of the ordinary with a Chief of Staff running the staff, as they’re supposed to do.

One portion the media is latching onto for headlines is her claim that President Trump is “mentally declined.”

Her latest attempt to stay in the headlines is a recording of the President’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, who allegedly tried to bribe her with a high-paying job on President Trump’s reelection campaign. It was almost certainly an attempt at a payout, though one that can easily be dismissed as business-as-usual in the Trump inner circle. It’s not a coincidence that many former White House employees who now work for Trump in some form or fashion.

Omarosa Drops New Tape To Bolster Claim Trump Offered $15K/Month For Silence

https://deadline.com/2018/08/omarosa-secret-tape-lara-trump-campaign-job-offer-buy-silence-unhinged-1202446800/This time, Omarosa took to MSNBC to unveil a recording she said was made on December 16 of last year, within a couple days of being fired from her White House job by Chief of Staff John Kelly. In the recording President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law/campaign adviser Lara Trump appears to offer Omarosa a position on Trump’s re-election campaign.

So where does that leave Omarosa? Is her tale of being the victim a legitimate story? Yes. The problem is that she’s not a victim of Trump, Chief of Staff John Kelly, or anyone in the administration.

She’s a victim of her own failures.

When the campaign added her, she joined knowing she would gain personally from it. She didn’t share the ideas that candidate Trump was espousing. She changed her personal views to fit in with the only campaign that would take her based on her past experience as a reality TV star in hopes that she’d get a good job at the White House.

It worked for a time. Instead of counting her blessings and playing her cards right, she dramatically overplayed her hand. The importance she held in the White House never matched her own perception of where she really stood. Reports of her leaving shoes in many rooms of the White House while walking around without them gave many the perception she was too comfortable without maintaining professionalism.

With all this, the biggest flaw in how she has behaved and continues to behave is her ego. She’s the victim of her own lack of humility. This is why she feels it necessary to record so many conversations. She’s always on the lookout for a smoking gun she can use against people because in her mind she’s so important, of course everyone’s out to get her. It’s a combination of paranoia and narcissism that leads her to believe she needs to protect herself by catching others saying bad things to her.

Can anyone every have a conversation with her without wondering if their words are being recorded? She should Mirandize everyone before starting a conversation with them. “Anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of public opinion.”

We shouldn’t bash Omarosa. She’s not important enough. Instead, we should pity her for being unhinged and not even realizing it.
