Obama’s Cyber Chief: Susan Rice Gave ‘Stand Down’ Order In Response To Russian Meddling
The Daily Caller ^ | 06/21/2018 | Chuck Ross

Posted on 06/21/2018 9:48:32 AM PDT by detective

Former President Barack Obama’s cybersecurity czar confirmed Wednesday that former national security adviser Susan Rice told him to “stand down” in response to Russian cyber attacks during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Michael Daniel, whose official title was “cybersecurity coordinator,” confirmed the stand-down order during a Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing held to review the Obama and President Donald Trump’s administrations’ policy response to Russian election interference.

Rice’s order to Daniel was first reported in “Russian Roulette,” a book published in March that details Russia’s meddling in the election.

In the book, authors Michael Isikoff and David Corn reported that Daniel was developing strategies to respond to Russian cyber attacks on U.S. companies and political campaigns. He proposed using what’s known as denial of service attacks to take down Russian propaganda news sites and to attack Russian intelligence agencies

From the article:

“You were told to stand down, is that correct?” Risch, a Republican, asked Daniel.

“Those actions were put on the back burner, yes. That was not the focus of our activity during that time period,” Daniel replied.

This is more evidence that the entire Russian interference in the election story was just a fraudulent operation by the Obama administration meant to illegally set up president Trump.

It has been proven that the emails from the DNC were not hacked but rather accessed locally through a DNC employee.

It has been proven that the Obama administration illegally spied on the Trump campaign and the Trump presidency.

It has been proven that the Obama administration repeatedly lied about their activities.

It has been proven that we have a two tiered legal system in this country. One for the political elites, and another one for everyone else.

Millions of American citizens who have been educated in the principles and ideas which caused America to be the symbol of freedom and opportunity for oppressed people were, and are now, supporting Donald Trump as President. In the Year 2016, there were labeled and "compartmentalized" (Clinton) by that desperate candidate as "the deplorables."

How revolting and un-American that such any person should present himself/herself as worthy of being President of these United States of America!

Please review the following story and words of a Democrat from an earlier time in America's history.

Would Hillary call him a "deplorable"?

The American's Creed


"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people by the people, for the people, whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a Republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect Union, one and inseparable; established upon those principls of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my Country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies."

Historical Notes: The American's Creed was a result of a nationwide contest for writing a National Creed, which would be a brief summary of the American political faith founded upon things fundamental in American history and tradition. The contest was the idea of Henry Sterling Chapin, Commissioner of Education of New York State. Over three thousand entries were received, and William Tyler Page was declared to be the winner. James H. Preston, the mayor of Baltimore, presented an award to Page in the House of Representatives Office Building on April 3, 1918. The Speaker of the House of Representatives and the commissioner of education of the state of New York accepted the Creed for the United States, and the proceedings relating to the award were printed in the Congressional Record of April 13, 1918. It was a time when patriotic sentiments were very much in vogue. The United States had been a participant in World War I only a little over a year at the time the Creed was adopted.

The author of the American's Creed, William Tyler Page, was a descendant of John Page, who had come to America in 1650 and had settled in Williamsburg, Virginia. Another ancestor, Carter Braxton , had signed the Declaration of Independence. Still another ancestor, John Tyler, was the tenth president of the United States. William Tyler Page had come to Washington at the age of thirteen to serve as a Capitol Page. Later he became an employee of the Capitol building and served in that capacity for almost sixty-one years. In 1919 he was elected clerk of the House. Thirteen years later, when the Democrats again became a majority party, they created for Page the office of minority clerk of the House of Representatives. He held this position for the remainder of his life.

Referring to the Creed, Page said: "It is the summary of the fundamental principles of the American political faith as set forth in its greatest documents, its worthiest traditions, and its greatest leaders." His wording of the Creed used passages and phrases from the Declaration of Independence, the Preamble to the Constitution, Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and Daniel Webster's reply to Robert Y. Hayne in the Senate in 1830.

"Tell Vladimir that after the election I'll have more flexibility"

“One for the political elites”

There is nothing ‘elite’ about politicians. I would prefer the term ‘talent-challenged manipulators’.

Orders from Samantha Rice. Obama and his muses......because Bathhouse Obongo appointed strong women to run our country which he personally was incapable of. He was too busy bowing to foreign royalty and lining his own pockets.

This seems like important news. I’ll flip on CNN to confirm. If they aren’t talking about it on panel after panel, it will confirmed.

Thanks detective. IOW, the authors, who are and have been partisan media shills, need to be investigated by a special prosecutor for their collusion.

IMO, THREE

- One for the elites/connected that will NEVER get prosecuted, least alone arrested. IE: Zero, Cankles.
- One to prosecute those on the above’s ‘naughty list’ (no paying enough greasing the palms, crimes that couldn’t stay hidden, etc.). They get a COMFY stay (short) @ Club Fed (Riviera Edition), at the worst, slap on the wrist @ the least. IE: Comey, Lynch
- Then you have ‘throw the book at ‘em’, Pleeb ‘just-us’
