  • 'History has not delivered its verdict': Ben Rhodes on Obama's legacy [barf]

    When Donald Trump won the US presidency in 2016, he set out to revert some of his predecessor’s signature policies. Soon after he entered the White House, President Trump withdrew from long-negotiated international agreements like the Iran nuclear deal, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Paris climate accord. But although some may argue that the legacy of former President Barack Obama is looking shaky, one of his key advisers preferred to take the long view and told DW’s Conflict Zone that “history has not delivered its verdict.” “The future of American politics is going to look a lot more like...
  • DID OBAMA TIP OFF IRAN TO ISRAELI PLAN TO TAKE OUT WORLD'S PREMIER TERRORIST?

    A Kuwaiti paper reveals another monstrous Obama betrayal. We thought the Obama administration could stoop no lower when it was revealed that the administration transferred $1.7 billion in untraceable cash to the Islamic Republic as ransom for the release of four Americans hostages they were holding. We were wrong. In its twilight weeks, the administration gave its consent to allow the Iranians to receive 116 metric tons of natural uranium from Russia as compensation for its export of tons of reactor coolant. According to experts familiar with the transaction, the uranium could be enriched to weapons-grade sufficient for the production...
  • Ben Rhodes Election Night Shock Clip From HBO Becomes Internet Comedy Meme

    Most of HBO's documentary The Final Year features members of former President Barack Obama's foreign policy team in 2016 oozing extreme hubris over how wonderful they thought they were. That came to an abrupt halt on Election Night when Donald Trump knocked them off their perches by winning the presidency. None was more shocked than Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes (although United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power came close).  A clip from the documentary shows a devastated Rhodes sitting outdoors after discovering his liberal world has been shattered. His shock is so extreme that he is actually struck dumb and is unable...

    Every Dem has his day. Hillary had her tour. Bernie had his. A number of Dem staffers and media people have done theirs. Now it's Ben Rhodes' turn to play Miss Obama. His documentary clips are everywhere. He's got a new gig with NBC. And he's churning out a stream of articles, editorials and excuses. As the Obama Whisperer, the manager of the echo chamber, he's back doing what he loves. Spinning. This time it's Obama on Syria. In an Atlantic piece, Obama's vizier blames the international community and Republicans. Obama had famously blamed the Euros. Rhodes goes easier on...

    Lawyer: Mueller indicted “the proverbial ham sandwich.” This week, on Wednesday May 9th, a hearing took place between the corrupt Mueller team and one of the Russian Companies they indicted for interfering with the 2016 US election, Concord Management. Concord Management and a sister company Concord Catering were charged by Mueller for defrauding the government. The Mueller crooks and far left hacks were embarrassed again! A week ago Friday at a hearing on this same case, Mueller’s team asked for the case to be delayed. The judge politely declined and the initial hearing on the case was held on Wednesday....

    Aides to US President Donald Trump hired a private Israeli intelligence firm to create a “dirty ops” campaign against key Obama-era officials, the Observer reported. The firm was asked to find “dirt” on security adviser Ben Rhodes and former US President Barack Obama’s deputy assistant, Colin Kahl. Both individuals played key roles in the 2015 “Iran deal,” and sources claimed that Trump’s team contacted the Israeli firm just after Trump’s 2017 visit to Israel. […] The Observer claimed to have seen documents proving that the intelligence firm was ordered to investigate the personal lives of both Rhodes and Kahl, including...

    The departure of national security adviser H.R. McMaster and his replacement by former U.N. ambassador John Bolton are both significant and welcome. Bolton will be a team player on Team Trump and not someone with his own agenda who seeks the advice and counsel of those trying to undermine the Trump administration. Leaks such as the one of the memo warning President Trump not to congratulate Vladimir Putin on Putin's re-election will undoubtedly stop, as McMaster and his staff were viewed as the source for many of them.

    An attorney for Trump, Jay Sekulow and his senior counsel Carly Gammill appeared in a Washington D.C. federal court last week to find out when they will be receiving documents related to the Obama unmasking scandal. The ACLJ (American Center For Law and Justice) filed a FOIA lawsuit last summer and they are just now beginning to receive documents. Sekulow revealed the first batch of unmasking documents on his radio show Jay Live on Tuesday. The ACLJ received heavily redacted emails from former US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power that show unprecedented unmasking and political bias in the final...

    Remember all those hilarious 2016 election night videos? Well, the good news is that a couple of the best scenes of liberal desolation that night have remained unseen...until now. They come to us by way of "The Final Year" documentary which was intended to celebrate the Obama adminstration foreign policy team in its last year of office. The featured players are former Secretary of State John Kerry, former National Security Adviser Susan Rice, former United Nations ambassador Samantha Power, and former creative writing graduate and deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes. Most of the documentary is just boring propaganda with...
  • New film accidentally exposes Team Obama’s foreign-policy naivety

    In a moment of woeful irony in the Obama-administration documentary “The Final Year,” UN Ambassador Samantha Power travels to Cameroon to offer photo-op comfort to families terrorized by Boko Haram — only to have her motorcade kill a 7-year-old boy. Greg Barker, director of this fan film, does his best to downplay the accident: It is discussed while we watch a clip of Power’s convoy moving at a crawl when in fact it was reportedly traveling at over 60 miles an hour when it struck the boy. Despite Barker’s intentions, the handiwork of the Road to Hell Paving Co. is...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) - A new HBO Film that fake-documents the last year of the Obama Administration will premier on Jan. 19. The Daily Caller reports this morning that the film contains a scene in which ex-UN Ambassador and serial unmasker Samantha Power hosts an Election Night “female empowerment” party for women diplomats from all over the world to celebrate the impending victory by the Pantsuit Princess. “I thought what an amazing night for them. I mean, that’s what America represents to the world, when a glass ceiling is shattered in our country, it creates...

    Former Obama deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes mused about the deaths of top Republicans on Twitter Thursday before being scolded by GOP Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, who was severely injured in the June Congressional baseball practice shooting. Rhodes issued the inflammatory tweet in response to fellow Obama White House advisor Dan Pfeiffer, who joked that he hopes President Donald Trump’s Instagram photo celebrating the passage of the GOP tax reform bill appears on the front page of The New York Times when Trump is indicted. Pfeiffer didn’t specify what Trump would be indicted for.

She is one of at least three attorneys who followed Mueller from WilmerHale.At the firm, Rhee focused on representing people in government investigations, including white-collar criminal probes and criminal and civil fraud matters.But this week, details of Rhee’s client relationships emerged, revealing that she represented Obama...

    A former aide to President Barack Obama on Friday tore into President Trump over his continued attacks on NFL players who kneel in protest during the national anthem. "Trump has done far more to disrespect our country and our flag than any football player, including these constant attacks on black athletes," former Obama adviser Ben Rhodes tweeted. The tweet from Rhodes, a former deputy national security adviser, came after Trump slammed the NFL earlier in the day for not implementing penalties for players who protest during "The Star-Spangled Banner." “Can you believe that the disrespect for our Country, our Flag,...

    The media’s real business is ‘story laundering’. "The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns," Ben Rhodes gloated. "That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing.” Rhodes, the White House’s “Obama whisperer”, was explaining how he had pulled the wool over the media’s eyes on the Iran Deal to a journalist. The media responded to the story by attacking the journalist who reported it, not Rhodes for viewing them as easily manipulated useful idiots. The media knew that it knew nothing. And it didn’t care. It just...

    The Obama administration signed a law-enforcement agreement with Cuba Monday that doesn’t call for the return of U.S. fugitives, including former Black Panther Joanne Chesimard, who is wanted for killing a New Jersey police officer. The pact was signed by Jeffrey DeLaurentis, the de facto U.S. ambassador in Havana, and the Cuban Interior minister Julio César Gandarilla. It covers a broad range of law-enforcement topics, such as counternarcotics operations. Also present at the signing was White House deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes, who played a key role in forging Mr. Obama’s policy of restoring diplomatic ties with Cuba in...

    A former foreign policy adviser to President Obama is warning there could be trouble if North Korean leader Kim Jong Un chides President Trump over the fact that he lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. "God save us if Kim Jong Un makes a comment about Hillary's popular vote victory," Ben Rhodes wrote on Twitter Friday. Trump and North Korea's leader have been locked for months in a war of words and threats that has prompted concern among foreign leaders who fear Washington and Pyongyang may be hurtling toward a confrontation. Trump said last month...

According to a publicity email sent by the Museum, the study was set to be launched at an event at the US Institute for Peace in Washington, D.C., on September 11 and was overseen by a former US intelligence and national security official under Obama, Cameron Hudson, now director of the Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide....
