  • Susan Rice defends Bergdahl comments, calls his service 'honorable' [From 2014]

    President Barack Obama's national security adviser said Friday that her full-throated praise of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was appropriate given the former Taliban prisoner's willingness to go to war for his country -- despite questions about whether or not he deserted his Army colleagues. Susan Rice, who on Sunday said Bergdahl served the United States with "honor and distinction," told CNN in an interview that she was speaking about the fact the Idaho native enlisted and went to Afghanistan in the service of his country. "I realize there has been lots of discussion and controversy around this," Rice said. "But...
  • Bergdahl’s guilty pleas won’t end the scandalous tale

    Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is admitting his guilt, bringing an end of sorts to one of the most shameful episodes of President Barack Obama’s tenure. Bergdahl, who faced an Army court-martial this month, will plead guilty to the two counts with which he’s been charged: desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, the Associated Press reports. So much for Team Obama’s insistence that Bergdahl had served “with honor and distinction.” Even National Security Adviser Susan Rice’s claim that he’d been “captured on the battlefield” was untrue. That happy talk — complete with a Rose Garden celebration — was an effort to justify...
  • Do we really need an Ebola Czar?

    American Thinker ^ | 10/21/2014 | S. John Massoud
    Most of the so called “conservative media” and many Republican politicians have been trashing the Obama regime for the appointment of new “Ebola Czar” Ron Klain. Most of the trashing has been based on the fact that Klain is not a medical doctor by trade, and that all he has ever done was be in charge of Al Gore’s staff. The fact that the Ebola Czar won’t report directly to our Glorious President Obama, but instead to Susan Rice – well how can you argue with that logic (please note the sarcasm). Republicans and the conservative media are missing the...
  • Wait-Susan Rice Leaked The Facebook/Russia Story To Give Obama Some Cover?

    Leah wrote earlier this week about the Washington Post’s trip up regarding their story about Barack Obama, Facebook, and Russia. The Post stepped on a rake when they reported that Obama reached out to Mark Zuckerberg about Russia, fake news, and taking the spread of this disinformation seriously during the 2016 election. The problem is that Russia was never mentioned: Facebook clarified that when the former president did reach out to the tech giant about political disinformation campaigns on the site during the 2016 election, he never called out Russia specifically, which makes their initial headline completely wrong. Axios reported...

    Lawmakers place renewed focus on unearthing Obama efforts to monitor team Trump Senior congressional leaders are renewing their focus on an investigation into efforts by the Obama administration to obtain highly classified intelligence information on Trump administration allies in what many allege was an effort to undermine the president and his national security team, according to conversations with multiple senior U.S officials familiar with the situation. The recent admission by Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice that she requested the unmasking of Trump associates named in highly classified intelligence community reports has placed renewed attention on an investigation into...

    A former foreign policy adviser to President Obama is warning there could be trouble if North Korean leader Kim Jong Un chides President Trump over the fact that he lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. "God save us if Kim Jong Un makes a comment about Hillary's popular vote victory," Ben Rhodes wrote on Twitter Friday. Trump and North Korea's leader have been locked for months in a war of words and threats that has prompted concern among foreign leaders who fear Washington and Pyongyang may be hurtling toward a confrontation. Trump said last month...

    Daniel Greenfield’s article (h/t pointman12) is downright scary, but I think that’s his point: The hysterical obsession with destroying Trump comes from the top down. It’s not just ideology. It’s wealthy and powerful men and women who ran the country and are terrified that their crimes will be exposed.It’s why the media increasingly sounds like the propaganda organs of a Communist country. Why there are street riots and why the internet is being censored by Google and Facebook’s “fact checking” allies. It’s not just ideology. It’s raw fear.The left is sitting on the biggest crime committed by a sitting president....
  • It looks like Obama did spy on Trump, just as he apparently did to me

    The Hill ^ | Sharyl Attkisson,
    Many in the media are diving deeply into minutiae in order to discredit any notion that President Trump might have been onto something in March when he fired off a series of tweets claiming President Obama had “tapped” “wires” in Trump Tower just before the election. According to media reports this week, the FBI did indeed “wiretap” the former head of Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort, both before and after Trump was elected. If Trump officials — or Trump himself — communicated with Manafort during the wiretaps, they would have been recorded, too. But we’re missing the bigger story. If these...

    It's not called "blind hatred" for nothing. A while back I wrote that democrats were opening Pandora's box.  It is now open and they're really, really not going to like what's coming. Last week, we learned that Susan Rice lied through her teeth: On the same day, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice was interviewed by PBS’s Judy Woodruff and asked to respond to Nunes’ accusation that she had unmasked those Trump officials in the waning days of the Obama administration. Here is the exchange: Woodruff: We’ve been following a disclosure by the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, that in...

    Imagine if Watergate had been about the White House spying on Democrats for the KGB. Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. After months of denials, the pretext for Susan Rice’s eavesdropping on Trump officials has finally been made public. It had been widely known that Obama’s former National Security Adviser had contrived to unmask the names of top Trump officials who had been spied on by the administration. And the same media that still treats Watergate as the Great American Scandal had...

    President Trump said Thursday that efforts by Susan Rice to unmask his associates’ identities in intelligence reports last year are “just the tip of the iceberg,” slamming the former Obama national security adviser days after she spoke to House investigators. “She’s not supposed to be [unmasking], and what she did was wrong … and that’s just the tip of the iceberg,” Trump told Fox News, speaking aboard Air Force One on his way back from surveying Hurricane Irma damage in Florida. He added, “I heard she admitted [to unmasking] yesterday.” A senior Capitol Hill source told Fox News that Rice...

    Former national security adviser Susan Rice privately told House investigators that she unmasked the identities of senior Trump officials to understand why the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates was in New York late last year, multiple sources told CNN. The New York meeting preceded a separate effort by the UAE to facilitate a back-channel communication between Russia and the incoming Trump White House. The crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, arrived in New York last December in the transition period before Trump was sworn into office for a meeting with several top Trump officials, including Michael Flynn,...

    The House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday is interviewing Susan Rice, former Obama national security adviser, on her role in unmasking Trump campaign and transition team members, a source confirmed to Breitbart News. Rice’s appearance was requested as part of the committee’s probe into unmasking — the practice of requesting the identities of American citizens who are swept up during in surveillance of foreign officials’ communications. Americans’ identities are hidden to protect their privacy, but officials can request their identities, with the approval of a senior intelligence official. In April, several news outlets revealed that Rice had unmasked Trump campaign and...

    CIA Director Mike Pompeo says he’s seen all of the unmasking requests made by members of the Obama administration during the election. In an interview with Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,” Pompeo would not reveal whether the requests constituted spying on President Donald Trump, his campaign or transition team. Obama officials asked for various intelligence documents to be “unmasked” to reveal the names of any Trump campaign or transition members connected with surveillance of meetings with foreign governments or officials. Pompeo would only say that the CIA had worked well with Congress. “There is an active investigation going one...

    North Korea’s substantial nuclear arsenal and improving intercontinental ballistic missile capacity pose a growing threat to America’s security. But we need not face an immediate crisis if we play our hand carefully. Given the bluster emanating from Pyongyang and Bedminster, N.J., Americans can be forgiven for feeling anxious. Shortly after adoption of new United Nations sanctions last weekend, North Korea threatened retaliation against the United States “thousands of times” over. Those sanctions were especially potent, closing loopholes and cutting off important funding for the North. August is also when the United States and South Korea conduct major joint military exercises,...

    It takes balls to offer advice to a new administration on how to clean up a mess you and your boss left sitting for eight years, so congrats to her on that. I wonder if she already has her “We can learn to live with Iranian nuclear ICBMs” op-ed written for 2024 or whenever that ends up happening. “History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea — the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War,” she wrote in a New York Times op-ed
