Susan Rice’s unmasking lie

The Susan Rice Lie

When confronted by Judy Woodruff about reports the Obama White House had been spying on President-Elect Trump, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice lied. She flat-out lied. She claimed she had good reasons to do what she did, but there was no reason to lie about it at that point.

Here’s the exchange:

Woodruff: We’ve been following a disclosure by the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, that in essence, during the final days of the Obama administration, during the transition, after President Trump had been elected, that he and the people around him may have been caught up in surveillance of foreign individuals in that their identities may have been disclosed. Do you know anything about this?

Rice: I know nothing about this. I was surprised to see reports from Chairman Nunes on that count today.

Some in conservative media are pretty fired up about this.

http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/267873/did-susan-rice-spy-trump-officials-muslim-daniel-greenfieldSusan Rice’s excuse for unmasking the names of top Trump officials in the Obama eavesdropping effort was that they were meeting with the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates. The carefully packaged CNN story, which reeks of the Goebbelsian media manipulations of “Obama whisperer” Ben Rhodes, tries to clumsily tie the whole thing to the Russians. But for once it’s not about Russia. It’s about Islam.

Susan Rice Lied About Her Role In Obama Admin Unmasking Scandal | David Harsanui, The Federalist

http://thefederalist.com/2017/09/14/reminder-susan-rice-lied-role-obama-admin-unmasking-scandal/As we now know, Rice wasn’t surprised. At all. Wednesday, CNN reported that Obama’s former national security adviser told House investigators that she had unmasked those senior Trump officials in an effort “to understand why the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates was in New York late last year.” According to the report, the Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan had circumvented some diplomatic courtesy, which, apparently, was enough justification to spy on American citizens.

How the left is redefining ‘quid pro quo’ to make it seem ominous

How the left is redefining quid pro quo to make it seem ominous

Did you know you engage in “quid pro quo” every day? As you drive away from Starbucks with a latte in hand, you’re leaving the scene of your latest quid pro quo. When you tell your kids you will ground them if they don’t do their homework, you’re committing quid pro quo. When cover someone’s shift at work so they’ll work for you Saturday night, that’s blatant quid pro quo.

Literally, it’s Latin for “something for something.” It’s an exchange. You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours. It’s part of literally every negotiation between any two countries ever. Without quid pro quo, there would be no treaties, no trade agreements, and wars would always go on indefinitely. It’s not a bad thing.

When something inappropriate is offered as part of quid pro quo dealings, that’s when politicians get into trouble. Accepting gifts from lobbyists in exchange for favorable votes is an example of illegal quid pro quo. Or, as House Democrats are trying to prove, if a President holds back aid to a foreign government unless they investigate a political foe so dirt can be found on them for an upcoming election, that is bad quid pro quo.

Yesterday, acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney famously told the press to “get over it” when it comes to quid pro quo. His words were careless, not because they weren’t true but because in the current political atmosphere, his acknowledgement there was quid pro quo over the ongoing 2016 election corruption investigation muddies the waters. Democrats and the media have painted the common action of quid pro quo between two governments as negative by conflating their impeachment inquiry topic – Ukraine investigating the Bidens – with the other aspect of the phone call between President Trump and President Zelensky, the CrowdStrike’s involvement with the DNC hack in 2016.

The first is truly impeachable. The second is part of everyday business between two countries. Mulvaney admitted to the second, which is neither illegal nor impeachable. But the media pounced by conflating the two.

Democrats and mainstream media are trying to redefine quid pro quo as a negative thing worthy of impeachment. They’re doing this by confusing the language behind the action with the topic of the impeachment inquiry. Unfortunately, they’re doing this to an American public that is easy to confuse and easier to distract.

We’re witnessing a disingenuous attempt to make Americans believe quid pro quo in and of itself is bad. This is ludicrous, or course, but they’ll do or say anything to make President Trump look bad.

The 5 biggest lies from the Democrat debate

The 5 biggest lies from the Democrat debate

Liz Wheeler and her production team took on a very difficult task. They sifted through over three hours from the Democratic debate this week in an effort to try to identify the five biggest lies told on stage that night. We should applaud their Herculean efforts; it must have been like trying to determine which types of vegetables taste the worst when they’re spoiled. There aren’t enough Pinocchio images on the internet to cover all of the lies told at the debate.

Undaunted, the team at One America News show Tipping Point took on the challenge and came up with a list of five infuriating lies told on the debate stage Tuesday night.

  1. Elizabeth Warren’s big lie came through omission as she refused to answer the yes-or-no question about raising middle class taxes. This was around the 500th time she’s done this (we lost count at 342), choosing to redirect her answer to focus on “costs” rather than taxes.
  2. Cory Booker, Julian Castro, and Kamala Harris claimed abortion is a constitutional right. It is not. Even the majority brief from the Supreme Court admitted this in their ruling on Roe v. Wade.
  3. Beto O’Rourke pretended like his proposal for confiscation of “assault rifles” would not mean law enforcement will come to people’s homes to collect their firearms. His claim that law-abiding citizens will comply is not only false, it’s also a scary prospect. If law abiding citizens are the only ones forced to comply, what about criminals? They aren’t known for abiding by laws, especially ones that prevent them from committing their crimes.
  4. Elizabeth Warren made it on the list a second time with her claim that the wealth tax would pay for a myriad of socialist policies she intends to implement. This would be true if it weren’t for math. Unfortunately for her (and everyone else if she gets elected), the wealthy simply don’t have enough money to tax in a way that would pay for her plans. Moreover, every time a wealth tax has been tried elsewhere, it has failed miserably. But hey, at least she takes a lot of selfies.
  5. Impeachment. This is the ongoing lie of the day for both media and Democrats. All 12 candidates on stage supported impeachment (though Tulsi Gabbard was clear she only supported it if the House Democrats made a proper case for it), but only Bernie Sanders actually gave a reason why. Even his singular reasoning was false, though.

I’ll add another for the list – Kamala Harris kept saying, “When I’m President…” This is a big lie. It’s doubtful she even believes it herself judging by the direction she’s been heading in the polls.

There were enough lies told in the last Democratic debate to fill three hours of television, which is exactly what CNN did. Thanks to Liz Warren and the folks at One America News, we now know the five biggest one.

Conspiracy Theory

Technocracy: I never voted for this, did you?

Technocracy I never voted for this did you

There are two important takeaways from this video. The first is the content of the video itself, which points to the rising technocracy in America and the world. Technocrats generally acquire their “expert” status because they have the money to say, “I’m an expert on ______.” For example, Microsoft co-founder and geek-idol billionaire Bill Gates is an expert on… wait for it… climate change. Why? Because he donates enough money to climate change studies and charities.

We don’t vote for technocrats. They’re often given control over bureaucratic decisions through connections and recommendations to the executive branch. But in many cases, as with Gates or our favorite climate change technocrat, Al Gore, they’re given power to start initiatives that are co-opted by the government after the fact. Technocratic control over policies and initiatives is a much bigger problem than most realize.

The second takeaway from the video is the platform itself, Bitchute. I’ll admit, I hadn’t heard much about the platform until recently when I noticed more and more people I respect using it. Truthstream Media, who made this video, has been all over YouTube for years with half-a-million subscribers. But they’ve fallen victim, as so many have, to YouTube’s higher sensibilities about, well, everything. They get much less exposure on YouTube than they deserve, and this is the first “Bitchute Exclusive” video they’ve released.

As more freedom-loving patriots shift away from the overlords in big tech to find free-speech-friendly alternatives, we’re faced with a crossroads. Giants like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and Google have de facto monopolies over extremely important components of our digital experience. It’s important for more people who value liberty to make the transition, which is why we will be launching our own Bitchute channel once we return to video production by the end of this year.

It’s ironic that the first Bitchute-exclusive video by Truthstream Media is about the growing threat of the emerging technocracy because many technocrats are or were in big tech. This is a double entendre in defense of freedom.
