The Susan Rice Story: Crickets and Squirrels

Last weekend it broke that former Obama apparatchik Susan Rice apparently spent 2016 and the transition period collecting classified intel on Donald Trump and his campaign/transition staffs. For exactly what purposes is unclear. Rice’s responses have been of the “You can’t prove it, I didn’t leak it and It wasn’t illegal” variety.

You might recall Ms. Rice, was the chief disinformation dispenser for the Benghazi cluster-eff.

This was a follow-on to the Evelyn Farkas fark-up, adding fuel to the fire that there was vast, Obama administration-wide conspiracy to gather and distribute classified surveillance intelligence that could be portrayed as embarrassing to Trump and his people.

An interesting sidelight about this bombshell of a story is its coverage or lack thereof. It broke last weekend yet, somehow, the major media, those great guys and gals that cover every utterance of Trump and so many Republicans, have helpfully relayed the “Trump is a Putin puppet” meme slavishly almost every hour of every day since it surfaced last year, have yet to get to the story, and I write this Thursday night.

Wait, I tell a lie. There have been a couple of odd stories about Susan Rice issuing mysterious denials concerning something that is entirely legal and hardly anything at all… The inestimable Mollie Hemingway has a great piece here.

The Farkas revelations too have been ignored.

Ahem…

Yeah, no media bias here… move along.

Obviously, the MSM is waiting for their cues from the DNC, via the New York Times, Washington Post and AP — all of which have turned a blind eye to a story that if it was committed by a Republican would be 24/7 news.

Eventually we’ll see a few dimwitted Dem parrots… er… politicians will chime in reinforcing the anointed meme. Clearly the DNC hasn’t figured out the angle yet.

Question, if the MSM doesn’t cover something, is it still news? (Their answer is ‘No.’)

We’re Farked!

It seems now that Evelyn “Park Yer” Farkas is desperately walking back her claims on MSNBC to have been involved in an anti-Trump classified intelligence distribution network that existed in the late Obama administration; and kicked into overdrive during its dying days to distribute (leak) the info to the MSM before they were kicked out of the White House.

The story has been essentially ignored by the major media but that didn’t stop Farkas from issuing a denial, claiming that she didn’t say what she clearly said. She described her MSNBC excerpt as being a “strange” and “edited” video that she didn’t recognize. Next she’ll be insisting that she was drugged, it was a pod person, a human robot created by Persona Synthetics, a doppelganger that appeared on MSDNC…er, MSNBC.

Obviously someone got to her and pointed out that she had just laid out a vast (illegal) conspiracy that she eagerly participated in.

Even worse, from the view of Democrats and the MSM, she validated Trump’s wiretapping claim. It’s hard to build a fake news meme when people on the side of the perpetrators confirm they were in league in instigating the very news that you are declaring is fake.

It’s reminiscent of the old Nixon-era Henry Kissinger quote, “Just because you are paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you.”

Farkas is the perfect specimen of the young highly-paid, politically-powerful, credentialed ninnies that proliferated throughout the Obama administration (Think Marie Harf). Arrogant, wholly lacking in experience, clueless and ignorant, they feel as if they have carte blanche because they are just so smart and so superior and so entitled to have power and to use it without consequence. These are the soldiers of the left-wing army deployed in conquest of total power. These are the people who will obediently, even gladly sign orders sending people with whom they disagree to reeducation camps and ultimately they’ll sign execution lists. They powered Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, Red China, Khmer Rouge Cambodia, Castro’s Cuba… This new group has no historical knowledge of those eras and they don’t want any or care for any. They already know everything and they know what is best. Now get on that train car…

And This Guy Goes to Jail?

The Democrats and the media (one and the same) claimed another pair of Republican scalps with the conviction of former Chris Christie aides Bill Baroni and Bridget Kelly concerning traffic on a New Jersey bridge. Somehow Baroni and Kelly engineered for the New Jersey transpo people to realign some lanes on the bridge to cause chaos in retaliation for the local mayor’s refusal to endorse Christie’s run for governor.

Yes, monkey with traffic lanes — you know, kind of like what Democrat politicians do all the time when they want to cause chaos to press for more highway funds. “If we only had more (Federal) money we could fix these problems!”

But these were Republicans so the book was tossed at them.

However, my big point is that these two got actual jail time (he two years and she 18 months) for what was a messy political tug of war. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Crime Crew are still free despite committing several high crime felonies, notably the whole email server setup and then lying about it and then destroying evidence and then dissembling to investigators, etc…

Meanwhile, we have a steady state of leakage of classified (anti-Trump) information by Obama holdovers in the government and no one, at least in the Democratic Party or the media, benefiting from these leaks, is demanding investigations and then some hides in jail.

Then we get the Evelyn Farkas revelations that she was an (anti-Trump) information wrangler in the later days of the Obama administration. She had been a deputy assistant secretary of defense in the Obama administration (Oy!) until she left to join the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2015. So, after Hill was put down, Farkas (and others) apparently spent the interlude before Trump was inaugurated collecting and pushing dissemination of negative Trump info throughout Capitol Hill (and the media). Much, if not all of this information, was classified. Oddly, she was apparently, technically, unemployed at the time, yet had quite a bit of access to various intelligence agencies.

It’s wholly possible, and unclear from her MSNBC interview, that she may have been dealing in this classified information before the election and while still employed by the Clinton campaign. Imagine if this had been a Republican…

Farkas actually seems quite proud of what she did and completely oblivious that she looks to be confessing to a series of felonies and outlining a major Washington-based felony conspiracy that sounds like something out of a movie.

She perfectly characterizes the modern liberal’s belief that they are just so great, and their cause so pure that mere laws do not apply to them.

And they are all scot free…

Don Beyer – Hack Representative

Given the choice between doing his Constitutional, Congressional and traditional duty of representing his constituents in an important Constitutional and historical process or being a rank Democratic Party hack flunkee, my Congressional representative, Don Beyer, chose the latter by saying he would “boycott” the Trump presidential inauguration.

He lamely whined that The Donald insulted women during the campaign. Apparently Hillary Clinton’s insults fell on his deaf ears.

It’s all part of the Dems’ plan to delegitimize Trump, making their increasingly antidemocratic activities more acceptable. If there’s a party that would attempt a coup, it is the Democrats. Be forewarned and forearmed.

These groups have been aided by, at least two local schools, The American University and Georgetown University. Both have allowed groups openly planning to “disrupt” the inaugural to use their facilities to plan and organize their possibly illegal activities. The American University even went so far as to ban reporters from covering these nefarious activities (not that the reporters would have reported anything negative), by claiming that a “media review” hadn’t been “completed.” For some inexplicable reason Washington reporters never tramp onto the Georgetown campus though several went there as undergrads.

In other Washington inauguration news, the local radio news station in Washington, WTOP, merrily sputters along seemingly guided now only by talking points issued by the Democratic National Committee (usually via the Washington Post, New York Times or Associated Press).

Today they seemed to feature more stories about people protesting or planning to disrupt the inaugural than straight stories about the inaugural itself. And the reporters certainly did not offer any judgments on such folks. They were treated as if they were merely visiting to take in the Smithsonian or the Lincoln Memorial. One of them even insisted that they would not accept democratic electoral results that they did not like. The reporter didn’t bat an eye, metaphorically, or even pursue the point; such is the leftist lean of the media that the position doesn’t raise an eyebrow.

Of course, when it was reversed and King Barry I was being sworn in, it was all sweetness and light about how many wonderful people were traveling from the hinterlands for the “historic” events. The possibility that anyone would protest, much less try to disrupt them, was so far from the mind as to be science fiction. Anyone making such a threat would have been cast beyond civilized society.

Ah, but that was different!

Now disruption and dissent are once again the greatest forms of patriotism! (This just a few months after leftists insisted that those not in full obeisance to The One were actual traitors. ‘You can look it up in the Constitution,’ they’d cluck).

The Face of Obama

There’s been some talk about King Barry I, once his kingship ends later this week, becoming the “face of the anti-Trump opposition in Washington.”

You see, after taking Jimmy Carter’s crown as “Worst President in Modern History,” The One wishes to also have Mr. Jimmah’s crown of “Worst Ex-President Evuh!”

Otard and Michelle plan to stay in Washington after Jan. 20 — after all, where else have they to go? Chicago? Yeah, I doubt they want him back — it’s already enough of a Hellhole without having him around to create mischief.

New York? They never really dug the Obamas (They actually don’t even dig the Clintons either). Hawaii? Too far out of the limelight — something Barry will never be able to do without ever again.

But I’m getting ahead of myself. Suffice to say, the Obamas will not voluntarily leave the stage and no one would dare try to kick them off of it.

Obama being the face of anti-Trump opposition, while something highly gauche for an ex-president, will likely be a natural evolution. Obama will love it and Democrats really have no one else to turn to.

King Barry’s narcissism and demands forced the whole party to devote itself to his survival and accrual of power and nothing else. It lost hundreds of offices at city, county and state levels and its bench is depleted at the national level. The party is headed by tired old failures like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer with dimwitted celebrities like Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham and Rosie O’Donnell acting as public auxiliaries. They are openly helped by the mainstream news media (as it seems intent upon mass suicide).

So Obama, with his seeming golden aura, he’s the only Democrat to have one, is a natural to lead the party’s public face.

And that will actually help the Republicans, conservatives and Trump.

Obama sucks the air out of every room he enters. And he does not tolerate competition for attention (adoration). He will do the Republicans dirty work for them by preventing new Democratic leaders from coming forth or becoming powerful. Short of the never-ending, self-generating frisson on the far left Obama will act as a halon gas for everything else.

And as the face, he will, and everyone will, find that golden aura becoming increasingly tarnished — as the foolishness of the Obama regnancy becomes more obvious as time goes by.

Sure our MSM and Entertainment-Industrial Complex will endlessly sings the praises of the pre-Trump “Good Times,” no matter how well Trump does (or doesn’t do), but that silliness will fall on greater numbers of deaf ears as the partisanship of those people becomes clearer; and they become more irrelevant.

King Barry the Hypocrite

Actually hypocrite is an understatement but as with all things derogatory, King Barry is the unexcelled master.

Witness his performance on “The Daily Show” on the appropriately named Comedy Central network.

Firstly, Obama whined to host Trevor Noah that he didn’t understand why there was such a ruckus by Republicans about Hillary Clinton’s perfectly “ordinary” emails. Of course Obama was lying through his teeth on this. He knows that the emails in question were not “ordinary” but rather classified, some of them containing the information with the highest levels of classification.

That was just one of Clinton’s crimes. A second one, which Obama knows about since he participated in it as well, is that Clinton set up an independent email system outside of the secured State Dept. system. One which that only she and her cronies controlled not the State Dept. IT security people. That is in direct violation/purposeful subversion of so many federal government record-keeping/archives/public oversight laws that Clinton & Co. should be facing tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and decades in jail.

Remember Gen. David Petraeus? He got two years probation and $100,000 fine after he pled guilty to what is a single quill on a porcupine compared to Clinton’s activities. Amazingly when Petraeus’s name popped up as a potential Sec. of State nominee, Democrats and the MSM immediately pointed out that Petraeus was unqualified for the job because he was guilty of leaking some secrets.

It was as if fish were complaining that a cactus was too wet…

But back to Obama on “The Daily Show.” The Hypocrite in Chief had the nerve to castigate Donald Trump for Trump’s questioning whether he’d need a daily intelligence briefing. John Hinderaker takes our foolish lame duck president to task for this Mt. Everest of hypocrisy.

If one remembers, Obama is known for eschewing daily intel briefings or playing with his phone on the rare occasions he does take one. See, The One knows all so no one could ever possibly brief him… At least in his own mind.

The Bias Grows

The bias of the American “news” media is increasing daily. I guess they finally feel completely liberated now, no longer having to pay a fig-leaf of obeisance to that J School fiction for the ages — being an unbiased deliverer of “just the facts, ma’am.”

Why would Variety of all publications step outside of its cozy niche to endorse Hillary Clinton? Admittedly Clinton’s pay for play corruption, amorality and anything-goes smash mouth politics matches Hollywood’s business ethics and the personalities of so many Hollywood power players but it still smacks of kicking a hornet’s nest. I feel they will live to regret their prostitution.

Hollywood has seen a number of recent years where box office receipts disappointed and more than the usual amount of bombs. It relies on often conservative-oriented action movies to pay the bills (and cover the libtard personal projects).

But to say that Hillary Clinton is “In fact, it’s hard to think of any presidential candidate with the depth of knowledge and public-service record she has.” Wow, that is delusional in a magnitude way.

Whatcha bet that Variety publisher Michelle Sobrino-Stearns (Hyphen-American!) and her editors are also Hillary funders?

Yet our own Barack Obama has said much the same… At a recent campaign stop he praised Hillary’s honesty and he has also tapped the uber-qualified meme.

I actually think that Obama is going so over-the-top in his praise so as to be winking at us or, matching his maturity, he’s just mugging like a high schooler weaned on Steve Martin… Or a kid invoking Opposite Day.

If he’s serious, one would have to question his sanity. It’s like calling a Wilt Chamberlain a midget.

Scott Johnson at Power Line has the video here.

And speaking of Power Line, if you haven’t, I highly recommend their Friday weekly contributor — Ammo Grrl. Check the latest out.

One of the commenters on that piece, the always perceptive Mary Louise Pivec, makes an interesting point: “When the first black president was elected, Michael Jackson and Prince were alive, Tiger Woods was at the top of the leader board, Oprah was the queen of the airwaves and Bill Cosby was a beloved national treasure. Eight years in, our musical royalty is dead, Oprah’s off the air and Cosby is one of the most despised public figures in the world. As president, Hillary Clinton will do the same for American women.”

We live in interesting times and they are about to get more interesting.
