Posted on 05/29/2017 6:45:10 AM PDT by rktman
The liberal network shows were all busy Sunday morning pushing accusations and speculation about President Trump and his adviser Jared Kushner. Their discussion was drive by more anonymous sources telling The Washington Post that Kushner tried to set up a backchannel discussion between Trump and the Russians to talk about Syria. CNN even accused the action of being treasonous. The hysteria was also present on NBCs Meet the Press, but theirs was shattered by The Wall Street Journals Kimberley Strassel after she introduced facts to the discussion.
I think we are having a discussion that is absolutely divorced from reality this week. It is astonishing, she quipped as she reminded them of how then candidate Obama (not President-elect Obama) set up a highly covert back channel with the Iranians:
Let me set the scene for you: Its 2008, we are having an election and candidate Obama, hes not even president elect, sends William Miller over to Iran to establish a backchannel, and let the Iranians know should he win the election they will have friendlier terms. Okay? So this is a private citizen going to foreign soil, obviously in order to evade U.S. intelligence monitoring and establishing a backchannel with a sworn enemy of the United States who was actively disrupting our efforts in the military in the Middle East.

NON print version:
not just the iranians but the iraqi’s as well:
WHILE campaigning in public for a speedy withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, Sen. Barack Obama has tried in private to persuade Iraqi leaders to delay an agreement on a draw-down of the American military presence.
According to Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Obama made his demand for delay a key theme of his discussions with Iraqi leaders in Baghdad in July (2008).
“Nicely done Kim.”
Somehow I’m guessing she won’t be back on Meet the Depressed for a while.
A recent poll found that most Americans view the MSM as biased. This is heartening. It would appear that the only people to really believe the propagandists are their fellow leftist Democrats. Yet the constant negative drumbeat about Trump may take its toll. It is important for decent people to continually delegitimize the MSM by referring to them as “fake news” or a term like the “propagandist press”.
No back-channel there! NO SIR! Why the media even reported that!
In 2004 John Kerry openly bragged about secret meetings with foreign leaders. To this day I don’t think the MSM bothered to ask him to whom he was talking.
Two key differences.
Kushner wanted to use a Russian SCIF to avoid US intelligence as a private citizen..
He lied about the meeting on his security clearance form which is a felony.
You dont just forget a meeting with a known Russian spy asking to use their equipment.
There was no way Russia was going to let him come into their Embassy and use their SCIF
The black woman in the video is a dunce.
She was just smiling to make it appear that the white woman was crazy. She had no substance and was clearly uninformed on real issues.
“....no substance and was clearly uninformed on real issues...” That pretty much covers 98% of msm. And the other 2% is questionable. But they’ll swear by it no matter what.
For crying out loud, will one of them PLEASE read FR? All the good opposition research occurs right here!
Joy Reid’s pitiful performance illustrates the weaknesses of Affirmative Action.
Interesting. Do you have a link to that story. Many thanks
Btw...what obama did was Wrong too....he Interfered in what Bush was trying to do at the time...and very possibly altered the outcome.
Using his actions or anyone elses to excuse kushners bone headed move is wrong to do.
We all know Trump can pardon Kushner for covering up the meeting on his security form...
If kushner wasnt his son in law he would be gone.
Kushner doesn’t belong in prison..he belongs in NY
Leaking of material like that exposes capabilities of the TS/SCI/SAP variety. A serious felony.
No..on phone.hard for me to do anything.
Hayden said he thinks this whole thing was naive versus nefarious. I tend to agree.
Problem is he covered it up...dont know on whose advise but he was using gorelick at the time
Why do people here not understand that using a cutout is far different than going into an embassy and using electronic gear to avoid US intelligence...and it was a felony to cover it up.
Btw..what obama did was wrong too
Based on your constant anti-Trump postings I'm guessing you are what is considered a Never Trumper.
So who would you like to see as president? Would you like Hillary, or Cruz, or Jeb, or Bernie? Since you can't stand Trump, who would you support as President. Is there anyone you can support?
Do you work for Soros as a paid poster since you are constantly posting any faults with Trump. I think you should disclose where your allegiances lie so we can all understand what you are trying to accomplish?
Thanks in advance for your response.
