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.

Luis Cobos-Cenobio, the star of the Arkansas dashcam shootout, is an illegal immigrant

Luis Cobos-Cenobio the star of the Arkansas dash cam shootout is an illegal immigrant

It’s an odd headline. The lede in this story should the shocking dashcam footage showing suspect Luis Cobos-Cenobio firing on police who were trying to pull him over. Unfortunately, immigration status is either buried or ignored altogether by mainstream media, so we thought it was necessary to point out up front that the man who allegedly tried to shoot and kill police officers is an illegal immigrant.

You can read the details at Fox News, one of the only outlets I’ve found so far that mentions his immigration status:

Dashcam video shows moment illegal immigrant suspect opens fire on Arkansas police officer

https://www.foxnews.com/us/dashcam-video-shows-moment-illegal-immigrant-suspect-opens-fire-on-arkansas-police-officerCobos-Cenobio has been jailed on $500,000 bond, and has had a detainer placed on him by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency spokesperson confirmed to Fox News.

Cobos-Cenobio has been charged with four counts of attempted capital murder, committing a terroristic act, fleeing, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to police.

If he is convicted on any or all of these charges, he’s going to jail for a long time. There’s no way to know at this point how many Americans he’s harmed in the past. Sadly, as a criminal illegal immigrant, there’s no reason for him to be here in the first place.

Mainstream media doesn’t want you to know that part of the story, though. Some went so far as to avoid the topic altogether.

For example, this article from ABC News is nearly 400-words in length and never even hints at his immigration status. Many stories simply noted as deep into the article as possible that he had a “federal hold” or “detainer request” without indicating that almost certainly means he’s here illegally.

Mainstream media is desperate to bury or cover up anything that pertains to illegal immigrants. This story, with its amazing and terrifying video, was too “good” for them to pass up. That didn’t stop them from hiding his immigration status.

Mr. President, do NOT trade Fethullah Gulen’s life to ease pressure on the Saudis

Mr President do NOT trade Fethullah Gulens life to ease pressure on the Saudis

Let’s tread cautiously for a moment.

If reports are true that the administration is considering delivering Turkish dissident Fethullah Gulen into the hands of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in exchange for easing pressure on Saudi Arabia, then it’s time to rethink where our moral compass is pointing as a nation. Here’s one of the reports, and I urge caution in regards to its validity until we hear more from the White House or see actions against Gulen:

Trump admin considers Khashoggi murder, trying to extradite Gulen

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/11/15/trump-admin-considers-khashoggi-murder-trying-to-extradite-gulen.htmlThe Trump administration is seeking ways to extradite an enemy of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, NBC News reported Thursday, citing two senior U.S. officials and two other people briefed on the requests. The effort is intended to get the Turkish leader to ease pressure on Saudi Arabia over the killing of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

It is at least the second time the White House has sought to remove Fethullah Gulen, a cleric living in exile in Pennsylvania. In President Donald Trump’s first days in office, his administration asked the Department of Justice to look into the matter, NBC News has reported.

Set aside internal politics of Turkey itself; support for Gulen, Erdogan, or neither is irrelevant in regards to this action. Let’s instead focus on what this would say about our priorities. I’m not so naive to believe lives aren’t traded in a geopolitical marketplace that thrives on quashing dissidents and sweeping atrocities under the rug, but there are lines that should never be crossed by the United States of America. This is one of them.

Let’s break this down into it’s core components. Again, at this point it has not been confirmed so tread lightly before formulating an opinion.

  • Turkish President Erdogan hates Gulen and has demanded his extradition over alleged connections to a 2016 coup attempt.
  • Erdogan has pursued Gulen for years, well before the coup attempt.
  • U.S. officials have not seen sufficient evidence that connects Gulen to the coup. Gulen vehemently denies involvement.
  • Turkey has been spearheading accusations against Saudi Arabia since the early hours following Jamal Khashoggi’s murder.
  • Turkey trickled information out to the public, holding cards as long as they could in hopes information implicating Saudi Arabia would surface without Turkey exposing their information gathering techniques. In other words, they spied on Saudi Arabia’s consulate and hoped they wouldn’t have to admit to it in order to nail the Saudis.
  • Saudi Arabia has pressured Washington DC to help them sweep this under the rug. Turkey has been the loudest voice calling for punishments against the nation, specifically calling for actions against Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.
  • Ergogan used to see MBS as a protege he could bring under his wing to solidify influence over Saudi Arabia. Now Erdogan views MBS as a threat to his standing as the default leader of the Middle East Muslim world.
  • The U.S. has almost certainly asked Turkey to stop. Our alliance with Saudi Arabia is more important than the death of a single journalist, at least in the eyes of many DC politicians.
  • Turkey has ramped up pressure and told DC the only way they’d stop is if they get their hands on Gulen.

Again, this is all a mix of speculation and extrapolation based on the limited facts we know. With that said, I’d say all of these speculations have a high probability of being true.

The only question would be the final bullet point on the list. Is the United States going to give Gulen to Ergogan, effectively signing his death sentence? Is the administration going to help cover up Saudi crimes by sacrificing someone who turned to us for asylum?

Let’s be very clear. I’m not defending Gulen as a person. I don’t know what he’s done, whether he instigated the Turkish coup attempt, or what he’s doing here in America. My only concern is whether or not the administration would trade a human life for mitigated damage to an ally that committed murder.

It’s always best to get the facts before forming an opinion. Until it’s confirmed the administration is doing this, we shouldn’t judge them. If it plays out as the report contends, there will be a lot more questions to ask about our nation’s direction.

Senator who pushes negative perception of ICE badgers nominee over negative perception of ICE

Senator who pushes negative perception of ICE badgers nominee over negative perception of ICE

Only in Washington DC is it okay for someone to complain about a problem they created, then attack someone else for not fixing the problem. It happens on both sides of the aisle but Democrats have become especially adept at it lately. Case in point: Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA).

As one of the frontrunners to go against President Trump in 2020, the California Senator has built much of her short career in DC around attacks on ICE. She demonizing the law enforcement agency any time the topics of border security, deportations, or illegal immigration come up. She has called for the agency to be dismantled and questions anything they do to fulfill their mission of keeping Americans safe.

That’s why it’s so disgusting to hear her badger Ronald Vitiello, President Trump’s nominee to lead ICE, over the topic of negative perceptions surrounding the agency. She went so far as to try to draw parallels between ICE and the Ku Klux Klan during his confirmation hearings.

“Are you aware of the perception of many about how the power and the discretion at ICE is being used to enforce the laws and do you see any parallels?” she asked.

“I do not see any parallels,” Vitiello replied. “That puts ICE in the same category as the KKK. Is that what you’re asking me?”

Harris, a former prosecutor and California Attorney General before becoming a Senator, seemed to be trying to trap the nominee into admitting that ICE is perceived by illegal immigrants the same way the KKK was perceived in the past.

Vitiello should have told her if those perceptions do exist, it’s because of rhetoric she and other Democrats have been spewing since President Trump took office.

Four months ago, the Senator said this:

New litmus test? Dems demand elimination of ICE amid immigration furor | Fox News

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/new-litmus-test-dems-demand-elimination-of-ice-amid-immigration-furorOn the West Coast, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who has been floated as a 2020 Democratic contender, said that the U.S. should consider “starting from scratch” for ICE — though stopped short of calling to abolish it.

“There’s no question that we’ve got to critically re-examine ICE and its role, and the way that it is being administered, and the work it is doing,” Harris said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. “And we need to probably think about starting from scratch.”

It’s quite rich for the Senator to push anti-ICE rhetoric onto the public, then ask a nominee to lead ICE if he’s aware the law enforcement organization is perceived like the Ku Klux Klan. GOP Chair Ronna McDaniel called it her 2020 campaign launch.
