Ben Rhodes launches a shadow National Security Council
American Thinker ^ | March 1, 2018 | Monica Showalter

So what's Ben Rhodes been up to these days? His unmaskings and leaks are over, he doesn't have Seb Gorka to lie about, and his failures as a national security official have pretty well been exposed.

I kid you not: he hasn't been idle.

His latest scheme is launching a "shadow" National Security Council, called "National Security Action," co-chairing the operation with Jake Sullivan. Showing that he was always the one running things in the Obama White House, despite his creative writing major, his past career as a failed novelist, and his lack of national security experience, he's herded a whole slew of top Obama-era national security officials, including former national security adviser Susan Rice, former national security adviser Tom Donilon, former United Nations ambassador Samantha Power, and socialist former Defense Department official Rosa Brooks, into his little shadow operation, as if these people somehow had a divine right to control national security and President Trump's current officials are somehow illegitimate. He's also thrown in Ben Wikler, director of MoveOn.org, which gives a whiff just how political and dirty tricks-oriented this "national security" operation is going to be. Creepy, indeed.

Ben Rhodes is the creative writing major who was in charge of national security and foreign affairs in the Obama administration. He is famous for lying about the Iran deal, helping to compose the phony Benghazi talking points and getting reporters and "experts" to say whatever they were told to say.

He said that the journalists he ordered around "literally know nothing."

In describing his new shadow NSC Rhodes says, "Some thoughts on the mission of @natsecaction: It’s time to shine harsh light on Trump’s leadership failures."

No doubt the media will obediently say whatever he tells them to say.

But they are socialists, so a more acute description would be National Socialist Council.

it occurs to me that this is just moving Deep State into the sunlight. and that these people have a lot to hide, about their actions and those of their pals, and this is their little club to keep each other honest.

seriously - they couldn’t find real work since Jan 2017? pathetic lot they are.
