    Friday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin took a deeper look into how President Obama’s administration permitted Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 election to go on unimpeded. Obama’s national security adviser, Susan Rice, reportedly gave a “stand down” order on developing cyber-espionage countermeasures against the Russians because President Obama did not approve them. “That is the sickening irony, ladies and gentlemen,” Levin said. “That it was Obama and his people who refused to fight back against the Russians. It’s Obama and his people that turned intelligence agencies and law enforcement against the Republican nominee for president of...

    Susan Rice, who didn't exactly care about a terrorist attack in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012 and gladly went on television to lie about it to the public, is repeating her same pattern. Turns out she issued a "stand down" order to National Security Council officials who sought to retaliate against Russia for its hacks into our electoral system. According to the Daily Caller, citing a new book out, Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin's War on America and the Election of Donald Trump: One day in late August, national security adviser Susan Rice called [NSC official Michael Daniel]...

    Former Obama administration official Susan Rice on Friday questioned President Donald Trump's ability to successfully execute a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and she warned an unsuccessful meeting could increase the risk of conflict. MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell–in response to an announcement that Trump will meet with Kim in the coming months–said to Rice that while the United States doesn't necessarily have a strategy for negotiations for an upcoming meeting, North Korea does. "What is the downside, if there is this big-flags-waving, red carpet summit and then no results?" Mitchell asked the former U.S. ambassador to the United...

    A newly released Inauguration Day email in which Obama national security adviser Susan Rice detailed a meeting with the outgoing president, James Comey and others is raising new questions for the former FBI boss, considering he never mentioned such a sit-down in Senate testimony last June. In his opening statement at the time to the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey downplayed his meetings with then-President Barack Obama, contrasting them with the numerous conversations he had with President Trump before his firing. “I spoke alone with President Obama twice in person (and never on the phone) – once in 2015 to discuss...

    Synopsis: This is certainly one of THE most important stories I've ever done. Within the last hour we received what appears to be an official British TOP SECRET signals intelligence document dated Nov. 17, 2016, showing that President Obama and his National Security Advisor, Susan Rice were the ones who first requested electronic spying on the candidate Donald Trump, just 7 days after Trump won the Republican nomination in late August, 2016. The secret document, which has no redactions, was sent by Robert Hannigan, the Director of GCHQ, to Boris Johnson, the British Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth...

    Why did Susan Rice send herself an email purporting to document this part of the meeting? Because she was C’ing her own A. Rice was nervous about the fact that, at the president’s direction, she had failed to “share information fully as it relates to Russia” with President Trump’s incoming national security team. This violated longstanding American tradition. Outgoing administrations have always cooperated in the transition to a new administration, whether of the same or the opposing party, especially on matters relating to national security. Susan Rice is far from the brightest bulb on the tree, but she was well...

    Susan Rice wrote an email and sent it to herself in the minutes during which Donald Trump was inaugurated. The Senate Judiciary Committee is giving former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice until February 22 to answer questions relating to an email she sent to herself prior to exiting from the Obama administration. It occurred during President Trump’s inauguration. The email contains classified information, so it’s a partial disclosure from the Judiciary Committee, but it seems to show that on January 5, 2017, then-President Obama, Vice President Biden, then-FBI Director James Comey, and then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates had a...

    Two leading Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee released a redacted top secret email Monday that Obama administration National Security Advisor Susan Rice appears to have sent herself just minutes after President Donald Trump took office. The email contains Rice’s impressions from a January 5, 2017 meeting on “Russian hacking during the 2016 presidential election” between then-President Barack Obama, then-FBI Director James Comey, and “intelligence community leadership.” According to Rice, President Obama and Comey had a “follow-on conversation” after the formal meeting during which Obama told Comey that “from a national security perspective” he wanted “to be sure that, as...

    House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes next plans to investigate the role former CIA Director John Brennan and other Obama intelligence officials played in promoting the salacious and unverified Steele dossier on Donald Trump -- including whether Brennan perjured himself in public testimony about it. In his May 2017 testimony before the intelligence panel, Brennan emphatically denied the dossier factored into the intelligence community’s publicly released conclusion last year that Russia meddled in the 2016 election "to help Trump’s chances of victory.” Brennan also swore that he did not know who commissioned the anti-Trump research document (excerpt here), even though...

    Add another page to Donald Trump's weird recipe book—the president apparently ate rice and cherry pie for lunch on Tuesday with Senate Republicans. NBC News reporter Leigh Ann Caldwell broke the story right after the meal, tweeting that she overheard a Secret Service agent discussing Trump's intake: "He ate rice and two pieces of cherry pie. Took a few sips of his drink," Caldwell tweeted. "'He loves rice.'" Meatloaf was also served at the Tuesday luncheon, which came as top GOP senators were preparing to revamp the tax code. It's unclear whether the president ate any, but the American people...
  • FLASHBACK: CitiGroup Chose Obama's Cabinet

    In 2008 Michael B. Froman, then Citigroup executive, sends John Podesta a list of cabinet members. The email is dated Oct. 6, 2008 and bears the subject line “Lists.” It went to Podesta a month before he was named chairman of President-Elect Obama’s transition team. Froman’s list proved remarkably prescient. As it proposed, Robert Gates, a Bush holdover, became secretary of Defense; Eric Holder became attorney general; Janet Napolitano, secretary of Homeland Security; Rahm Emanuel, White House chief of staff; Susan Rice, United Nations ambassador; Arne Duncan, secretary of Education; Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of Health and Human Services; Peter Orszag,...

    No one trusts Susan Rice in Washington, and there are a group of Trump Transition Team Members, along with Senator Lindsey Graham, and Rand Paul requesting a hearing from Rice on the unmasking of Trump and his Transition Team. Rice has a troubling past as far as her ability to tell the truth. But I have to say Obama’s influence seems to have ruined her. He asks her for the compilation of intelligence on the Trump Team, and she risks her own well being to get it. Judge Napolitano says she had a right to do that as National Security...
  • 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...

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...

    American Greatness ^ | September 25,2017 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Rarely has an intelligence apparatus engaged in systematic lying—and chronic deceit about its lying—both during and even after its tenure. Yet the Obama Administration’s four top security and intelligence officials time and again engaged in untruth, as if peddling lies was part of their job descriptions. So far none have been held accountable. Those exemptions are likely because, in hubristic fashion, all four assumed their service to progressive noble agendas would justify any odious means felt necessary to achieve them. In part their liberal credentials were seen as guarantees that the media either would ignore or excuse their dissimulation. And...

    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...
