Even by the liberal media standards, this is pathetic. Over the last 48-hours, proof has emerged that top Obama officials weaponized national security agencies to wage unprecedented attacks against political opponents. Susan Rice, former Obama National Security Adviser, was outed as among those in the former Obama administration who was doing so.
Today, the liberal media ignores those blockbuster revelations, hoping enough Americans are not paying attention.
The Russia-Trump story was apparently hatched months before the 2016 election but not given serious consideration as Team Obama, the entirety of both the Democrat and Republican Establishment, and the Mainstream Media, were confident Hillary Clinton would be the next POTUS. In the final weeks before the vote, apprehension of a Trump upset victory grew tenfold. Panic set in. And the Trump-Russian fabrication was given new life.
The fact there was no truth to the story didn’t matter. Team Obama invented it. Establishment politicians embraced it. And the Mainstream Media happily pushed it into the public narrative.
It was all a lie.

Check out this headline today from the New York Post:
“…we also know that the Obama administration later changed the classification of the “unmasked” transcripts, and other similar material, in order to spread the information as widely as possible within the government.
The motive for that was (supposedly) to prevent Team Trump from burying it all once it took over. But the result was that it made it relatively safe for someone (or someones) to leak the info to the press.
Rice certainly wasn’t politically naive about the political uses of intelligence information. She was, after all, the Obama official who famously made the rounds spouting the false “Our intel says it was about the video” line on the Benghazi attack back during the 2012 campaign.”
Team Obama willfully weaponized the nation’s intelligence operations against private citizens to influence an election both before and after. That is a far more grievous offense than anything an unknown Russian hacker may or may not have done in disclosing DNC emails. (which by the way showed proof of cheating by the Hillary Clinton campaign)
An outgoing president actively sought to harm an incoming president.
If Americans are fine with that, this country is in far more dire shape than even the pessimists among us might have thought.
Mike Cernovich has come out today to declare former Obama National Security Adviser Susan Rice as the one who gave the order to illegally “unmask” several members of the Trump transition team. Cernovich also indicated several members of the Mainstream Media knew of the illegal Obama spy program story and refused to cover it in order to protect Barack Obama.
Readers might recall it was Rice who was pushed out front and center during the Benghazi Massacre scandal. If Mr. Cernovich’s reporting is correct, it appears the Obama Machine is about to use her in that same sacrificial capacity yet again.
Cernovich went on to further detail his claims HERE
“Susan Rice, who served as the National Security Adviser under President Obama, has been identified as the official who requested unmasking of incoming Trump officials, Cernovich Media can exclusively report.
The White House Counsel’s office identified Rice as the person responsible for the unmasking after examining Rice’s document log requests. The reports Rice requested to see are kept under tightly-controlled conditions. Each person must log her name before being granted access to them.
Upon learning of Rice’s actions, H. R. McMaster dispatched his close aide Derek Harvey to Capitol Hill to brief Chairman Nunes.
“Unmasking” is the process of identifying individuals whose communications were caught in the dragnet of intelligence gathering. While conducting investigations into terrorism and other related crimes, intelligence analysts incidentally capture conversations about parties not subject to the search warrant. The identities of individuals who are not under investigation are kept confidential, for legal and moral reasons.”
REMINDER: Trey Gowdy had this very recent exchange with FBI Director James Comey during a Congressional hearing:
GOWDY: Would National Security Adviser Susan Rice have access to an unmasked U.S. citizen’s name?
COMEY: I think any — yes, in general, and any other national security adviser would, I think, as a matter of their ordinary course of their business.
Monday is likely going to very interesting.
