  • US to cover costs for journalists under legal pressure

    11/04/2021 9:55:55 AM PDT · by elpadre · 24 replies ^ | November 4, 2021
    The United States will devote funding to help journalists overseas survive frivolous lawsuits meant to silence them, USAID chief Samantha Power announced Thursday. Advertising In a wide-ranging speech, the US Agency for International Development administrator also promised to increase sharply how much American aid is channelled to local groups, vowing to make such assistance more inclusive and effective. Power, herself a former reporter, said that President Joe Biden's administration was setting up a "global defamation defense fund" for journalists as part of his democracy promotion agenda. "We will offer the coverage to survive defamation claims or deter autocrats and oligarchs...

    The Biden regime has sneakily convened a forum in Washington, DC, on October 27–28. Its real purpose—contrary to the stated purpose of fighting corruption—is to assure Guatemala’s border with Mexico remains open. Illegal immigrants can continue to flood our country and become Democrat voters. Guatemala—the key to illegal immigration with its 595-mile border with Mexico—is the only land route from South and Central America to the United States. Migrants from all over the world now pass through Guatemala’s borders. They are open thanks to Biden. Under Obama, Biden abused power to place criminal allies in charge of Guatemala’s judiciary and...

    Senator asks USAID pick Samantha Power about 'advocating on behalf of a foreign sanctioned entity.' The Biden administration’s nomination of Samantha Power to head the United States Agency for International Development is facing congressional scrutiny amid allegations the former Obama administration’s United Nations ambassador personally lobbied to remove a terror-designated group from the U.S. sanctions list. A series of redacted emails obtained by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) as part of an investigation into a nonprofit group that granted U.S. taxpayer funds to the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA), a terror-tied charity sanctioned by the American government, allegedly show that Power...
  • Washington Post Flynn source/felon was "senior administration official." Samantha Power queried the day before.

    The only relevant part of the article is this: According to a senior U.S. government official, Flynn phoned Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak several times on Dec. 29, the day the Obama administration announced the expulsion of 35 Russian officials as well as other measures in retaliation for the hacking. This is the entirety of the info on the Flynn leak in the WP article. Nothing else is written. It seems the reporter got the info from a "senior administration official" who hit the system, verified the date and volume of Flynn calls (and nothing else) to the Russian. Question: The...

    (snip) Having completed a round of media interviews, she was then in Dublin, having a drink at the Shelbourne Hotel with the musician and producer Brian Eno (Bono had just left them), when her phone rang. It was Denis McDonough, the foreign policy co-ordinator for Obama’s first presidential campaign. Had she seen a certain right-wing news website? She had not. “They have you saying all kinds of crazy sh** about Hillary to the Scotsman,” he told her. The “crazy sh**” included referring to Hillary Clinton, then a presidential candidate, as “a monster” and the observation that “the amount of deceit...

    From calling for the destruction of Israel to the National Security Council. "Why Is Georgetown Providing a Platform for This Dangerous Group?" an op-ed in the Washington Post had asked. The group was the Palestine Solidarity Movement, a BDS anti-Israel hate group whose conferences had a history of antisemitism, supporting Hamas and the murder of Jews. Maher Bitar, one of the executive board members of Students for Justice in Palestine, was one of the principal organizers of the 2006 conference which was being hosted by Georgetown University's SJP hate group.

    President-elect Joe Biden announced Tuesday he was nominating Samantha Power, a former Obama administration official and key unmasker of Trump campaign staffers, to a top position in his incoming administration. “Ambassador Samantha Power is a world-renowned voice of conscience and moral clarity — challenging and rallying the international community to stand up for the dignity and humanity of all people,” Biden said in a statement. “As USAID Administrator, she’ll be a powerful force for principled American engagement.”

    Last week, CBS News senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge broke a huge national story: Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell had declassified an “unmasking list” of people around President Obama who had requested intelligence on a member of the incoming Trump administration. Among the people on the list were UN Ambassador Samantha Power, White House Chief of Staff Dennis McDonough and then Vice President Joe Biden. There were sixteen in total. “Unmasking” allowed those 16 to read an unredacted transcript of a phone call or phone calls between incoming Trump DNI Michael Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

    Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power sought to obtain Michael Flynn's redacted identity using an "unmasking" request on at least seven occasions, according to newly declassified list of names released Wednesday -- even though Power testified under oath before the House Intelligence Committee that she had “no recollection” of ever making such a request even once. While sensitive requests to “unmask” individuals -- revealing their identity on a need-to-know basis after the intelligence community intercepts their communications -- are not necessarily improper, the records raised new concerns over exactly who might have leaked details of the Flynn...

    Samantha Power, the former ambassador to the United Nations under President Obama, attacked President Trump's administration for its empty-vessel response to the coronavirus pandemic. Power tweeted: “The saddest form of US leadership: ‘More than 840,000 Americans have been diagnosed with Covid-19 and at least 46,784 have died from it, more than anywhere else in the world.’” The tweet linked to an article out of Europe from The New York Times.

    The genuine magnitude of the FBI spying on the Trump campaign (or Adam Schiff’s getting ahold of the phone records of journalists and fellow representatives) was far greater than most people realize, reading or hearing about a FISA warrant to spy on Carter Page. Many people naturally presume that an operation to trample on the rights of one man – even an Annapolis graduate who served as a source for the CIA – was bad, but not a major spying operation. After all, Page was not a top-level campaign advisor but an unpaid volunteer. So, what’s the big deal? ......

    Where was Samantha Power when an unarmed Iranian young woman, Neda Soltan, was shot by Iranian troops, and bled to death in the street? As a member of Team Obama, does anyone recall Power saying anything critical of Iran? Does anyone recall Barack Hussein Obama commenting on that horrific assault on human rights? Oh wait, he did say something: “We’re still waiting to see how it plays itself out….” ... Everyone must hear about this. Every outlet in the world should publicize how the murderous Iranian regime is mowing down protesters. ... Wait until Samantha Power hears about how Samantha...

    President Obama indignantly denied Mitt Romney's charge in Monday's final debate that his foreign policy amounts to "an apology tour" around the world. "This has been probably the biggest whopper that's been told during the course of this campaign," Obama protested. "And every fact-checker and every reporter who's looked at it, governor, has said this is not true." In fact, the president has followed a "doctrine of mea culpa" crafted by a handful of radical advisers who have urged him to, in so many words, apologize for America's war on terror and nuclear superiority. • Samantha Power. "U.S. foreign policy...

    We have conducted an in-depth analysis of Obama-era White House visitor logs, and we have learned a good deal about the people who controversial CIA employee Eric Ciaramella met with while assigned to the White House. Ciaramella reportedly was detailed to the Obama White House in 2015 and returned to the CIA during the Trump administration in 2017. Real Clear Investigations named Ciaramella as possibly being the whistleblower whose complaint sparked impeachment proceedings against President Trump. As reported by the Examiner, Fox News’ legal analyst Gregg Jarrett indicated that a key takeaway was the “reported direct relationship” Ciaramella had with...

I told Declan that I had made clear that just because Putin had big weapons...

    Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power may share an unflattering stage with a text-loving FBI agent and his Donald Trump-hating paramour from the bureau. Fired agent Peter Strzok and ex-FBI lawyer Lisa Page are infamous today for texting on FBI phones their anti-Trump sentiments while allegedly having an affair. They played key roles in the now-debunked Russia collusion investigation. It turns out that Power — the diplomat whose authority inexplicably was used to unmask hundreds of Americans’ names in secret intelligence reports during the 2016 election — engaged in similar Trump-bashing on her official government email, according...

    This is a real headshaker that should send chills down your spine.Washington Free Beacon: The federal government is spending nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and hate speech on Twitter. The National Science Foundation is financing the creation of a web service that will monitor “suspicious memes” and what it considers “false and misleading ideas,” with a major focus on political activity online. The “Truthy” database, created by researchers at Indiana University, is designed to “detect political smears, astroturfing, misinformation, and other social pollution.” The university has received $919,917 so far for the project....
