On Thursday, President-Elect Joe Biden appointed Susan Rice as the head of the White House Domestic Policy Council, drawing mixed reactions from the public.
Rice served in multiple roles during both terms of the Obama administration; she was ambassador to the U.N in his first term and national security advisor in the second. In her new role for Biden, Rice will head the committee that will oversee the implementation of his domestic policy agendas.
Former senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett tweeted her support for Rice and described her as “a brilliant and dedicated leader committed to public service with a wealth of experience.”
Samantha Power, who succeeded Rice as ambassador to the U.N., and John Kerry, former secretary of state, both lauded Rice for her determination and experience that qualifies her for the job.
Despite this praise, a closer look at Rice’s past political experience will show some deeply troubling events.
Rice had a sketchy involvement in the terrorist attacks on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. For several days after the al-Qaeda attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, Rice continued to spread the lie that the attacks were a “’spontaneous reaction’ to an obscure anti-Islam video,” in Egypt, not the result of a failure from the Obama administration to protect our own.
“… What happened this week in Cairo, in Benghazi, in many other parts of the region was a result – a direct result of a heinous and offensive video that was widely disseminated, that the U.S. government had nothing to do with, which we have made clear is reprehensible and disgusting,” Rice said on ABC’s This Week on September 16, 2012.
Rice lied to the American families of the victims in the attack and deceived Americans on what actually happened. Everyone in the Obama administration who engaged in that cover up made a litany excuses for their inadequate response to a skirmish that resulted in the first violent death of a U.S. ambassador since 1988. All of those involved in that process (including Kerry) showed that the safety of Americans was their least concern, and should therefore never be in charge of guaranteeing American safety again.
That is why Rice is not a qualified candidate for this job. She is a pathological liar, and if she could not advocate for American lives abroad, there is no reason to believe that she will be qualified to implement policies within our borders.
President Donald J. Trump left no wiggle room at all for former President Barack Obama or former US Ambassador Susan Rice, on Monday, slamming both as participants of what Trump said could be considered “Treason”.
Trump said that Obama and Rice had been caught “red-handed” spying on Trump’s 2016 Presidental campaign, in a response to reporter Chanel Rion of One American News Network, who inquired about the appearance that 2020 Democrat Presidential candidate Joe Biden might choose Rice as a running mate to help cover-up Obama’s crimes.
Rumors had swirled for days that Biden would announce Rice as his running mate as early as last week, but Biden has yet to make any announcement.
My guess is Joe Biden will pick Susan Rice as his running mate. It’s a terrible choice, so it’s perfect for him!
“Many of your supporters feel that the reason Obama’s former NSASusan Rice is on the top of Biden’s list is that she could best cover up a lot of the #ObamaGate surveillance crimes that took place during your campaign,” Rion said.
Ironically Rice had commented about using the NSA to perpetuate a Democrat hoax against Trump, just one day before:
At the press conference, Monday Trump said that choosing Rice could be a liability for Biden.
“They have been caught, lets see what happens to them. They have been caught red-handed. It’s probably treason and it is a horrible thing that they have done. They used the intelligence agencies of our country to spy on my campaign, and there are a lot of people involved. I don’t want to say how much she is involved, frankly, if she is involved that is fine but it is a potential liability, we’ll see,” Trump said.
POTUS: They've been caught red-handed. It's probably treason. President Obama knew about it, Joe Biden knew about it. . .they all knew about it. We have it documented. They've been caught. Let's see what happens to them all.? https://t.co/FKxhjvmHwJ

“We have Obama, Rice, Biden, Comey, Clapper, and Brennan. We have it documented in all kinds of forms that the whole group knew about it. This should never be allowed to happen ever again. It was the political crime of the century and they were all caught. We will see what happens to them.,”Trump said.
In a recent interview, Democrat policy advisor and former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice shared the warmth of her love for her son, despite the political differences between them.
“I have a 23-year-old son whom I love dearly,” she told NPR on Tuesday, “whose politics are very, very different from my own and from the rest of the family.”
Rice’s son, John David Rice-Cameron, is an outspoken supporter of President Trump. He served as the president of his College Republicans chapter at Stanford University, the same university from which both of his parents graduated.
This is in sharp contrast to his parents, both of whom are Democrats. Ian Officer Cameron (his father) is a former executive producer with ABC News, and Susan Rice has an extensive history with the Democrat party.
Rice served on the National Security Council for former President Bill Clinton, as foreign policy advisor to Democratic presidential nominees such as John Kerry and Barack Obama, as Ambassador to the United Nations from 2009 to 2013 in the Obama administration, and as the United States National Security Advisor from 2013 to 2017.
“My son and I will have some robust disagreements over some matters of policy, not all,” Rice continued. “And yet, at the end of the day, you know, I love him dearly and he loves me.”
In an interview back in 2018 with Fox News, Rice’s then-20-year-old son said the same of his mother: “My mother and I have a great relationship, and my mother believes strongly in the free and respectful exchange of ideas.”
According to Rice-Cameron, it was his parents’ encouragement of open debate and discussion that led him to listen to counter voices, like Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin, and it was ultimately the Tea Party movement that led him away from his parents’ liberalism into conservatism.
Mother and son pointed to areas of agreement among them. “We agree, for example,” says Rice, “on the importance of the United States playing a responsible, principled leadership role in the world.”
And Cameron-Rice has echoed the same: “…we agree that America is the greatest nation the world has ever seen, and thus, we believe that America has an important role to play as a force for liberty and justice on the world stage.”
They find disagreement “on most of the standard Republican/Democrat disagreements,” said her son.
“We disagree on things like choice,” says Rice. “I’m pro-choice. He’s pro-life.”
In the same NPR interview, Rice had been speaking of the national divide being experienced right now between two opposing political parties. She blamed the White House for this division:
“…we are now burdened with leadership in the White House that thrives on dividing us and pitting Americans against each other. We absolutely have to move past that to a point of a recognition that we are all in this boat together, we sink or swim together.”
Turning to her disagreement with her son on the abortion issue, Rice stated, “That’s the kind of difference that we ought to be able to respect.”
Rice is currently on Joe Biden’s shortlist for vice president.
Susan Rice attended a meeting where it was clear that Obama knew about the investigation into the Trump Campaign and she didn’t want to be used as a scapegoat. Obama knew Rice had been briefing Flynn on things going on but he instructed her and Comey that they may not want to be candid with the new administration about Flynn being investigated.
It is believed that Rice knew this was wrong and not the normal protocol when a new administration was taking over. She wrote the note so that if this was ever investigated they couldn’t say the meeting happened at a different time. She wanted it noted that it was on inauguration day.
New evidence is showing that the White House Council instructed her to write the letter. The only reason why she would have sought their advice is that she knew it wasn’t right.
Historian and Hoover Institution senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson told “The Daily Briefing” Wednesday that Obama national security adviser Susan Rice was likely tired of being a “scapegoat” for the administration and was hoping to cover her tracks by writing the newly declassified email she sent to herself on Inauguration Day, 2017.
“During the Benghazi mess, she went out on the directive of Obama on five occasions and lied about the origins, genesis, and the cause of the disaster,” Hanson told host Dana Perino. “She was not going to be a scapegoat again.”
Hanson said Rice “played that role again and again … whenever there was a lie in the administration, it was traced back to her.
“And I think that she was kind of apprehensive,” he added, suggesting Rice’s thought process was “‘I’m not going to do this anymore. And I need a document that shows that I was just following Obama’s orders, but he was only following what other people told him.'”
Rice’s email documented a Jan. 5 Oval Office meeting with Obama and others, during which he provided guidance on how law enforcement should address Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race. Parts of the email had been previously released, but a section stating that then-FBI Director James Comey had suggested that the National Security Council (NSC) might not want to pass “sensitive information related to Russia” to Rice’s designated sucessor, Michael Flynn, had been classified as “TOP SECRET” until Tuesday.
Comey reportedly reassured Obama and promised he was proceeding “by the book,” — a term Rice emphasized three times throughout the email — and said that he had “no indication thus far that Flynn [had] passed classified information to [Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak].”
Hanson questioned Rice’s emphasis on operating “by the book,” which he said might indicate that Obama “ordered her or suggested that people might not want to be candid” in sharing information with Flynn pertaining to Russia.
Rice “was very worried that James Comey or Barack Obama or the mixture of the two might suggest that it happened in the past…,” Hansen explained, “and that she would be culpable.”
“So,” he went further, “if she ever got in trouble and lied about all of this to Flynn and others, she could say, ‘I went to a meeting and the president of the United States on the advice of James Comey said that there were some problems … and we might not be able to be candid about what we knew about Russia and this new administration.'”
There are many reasons why I love to watch the “Tucker Carlson Tonight” show on Fox. One of the biggest of many reasons is because Tucker is not afraid to expose people on either side of the aisle when it comes to doing something wrong. He’s the opinion guy on TV that will explain to you why he thinks something is wrong and why what politicians say is usually loaded with a bunch of bullschtein.
The contrast between when President Trump picked his cabinet members and made appoints to how President Biden was treated over his nominees and appointments is nothing short of astonishing and inconceivable just to use a couple of words to describe it. Nearly every nominee made by Trump brought anger and hatred from the Woke Supremamcists on the Left, in news media, academia, and of course in the Democratic Party. By contrast, there was no pushback whatsoever on appoints of people who were involved in major scandals, people like Jake Sullivan who was an aggressive user of Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email server which the FBI said was more-than-likely hacked by foreign governments was White House National Security Adviser or White House domestic adviser Susan Rice, who is a known liar, who once went on all the Sunday news programs and said that the Benghazi terror attacks on a US embassy that ended with the murder of four Americans, including the American Ambassador, happened in retaliation to an anti-Muslim YouTube video that apparently no one really saw or knew about. And there are more. No blowback by any Fake News outlets.
On Wednesday night, Tucker gave a virtual bitchslap to Biden’s new climate czar John Kerry a.k.a. Lurch explaining how the failed presidential candidate is such a hypocrite to fly in a private jet to climate conferences all over the world. This is something that progressives never understood how regular people, you know, us the great unwashed, could make such argument and point out their hypocrisy when flying around in pollution generating jets to go preach their watermelon antics. I say watermelon because these people are green on the outside and socialist red on the inside. While they virtue signal to the bourgeois of the world about climate change, global warming and all the other government gravy train nonsense that man has no impact on while they themselves violate their own virtue signaling. They must sit around scratching their heads wondering why the beknighted get upset when they violate their own virtue signalling thinking they do so to spread more virtue signalling. Can you follow all of that?
“The climate czar fights climate change. And if facts or common sense get in the way of that, the climate czar will fight those, too. It’s the perfect role for John Kerry,” Carlson sniped. “John Kerry has devoted his entire life taking on the global warming by contributing as much to global warming as he possibly can.”
Carlson went into details about how Kerry spent over 20 hours in 2020 fling around in his private jet “emitting in the process more than 100 metric tons of carbon emissions.” Carlson went on to categorize Kerry as “the kind of leader who leads by negative examples,” because his flying around that private jet produces more carbon than any American could possibly produce in their entire life.
A couple years ago Kerry flew all the way to Iceland to accept an award and to be honored for fighting climate change when he could have done a Zoom meeting online and had the award mailed to him:
“Well, in 2019 the world finally recognized John Kerry’s sacrifice, his enduring commitment to doing precisely what he wants while preventing you from doing the same. John Kerry was given in recognition of this something called the Arctic Circle Award. That Award recognizes his effort to, quote, ‘Tackle environmental matters.’
Naturally, John Kerry flew all the way to Iceland – that’s 3,000 miles away – on his private jet to accept this honor. In his acceptance speech, John Kerry made it very clear people like John Kerry make him angry. In order to fight climate change, John Kerry said, we need to do exactly the opposite of what John Kerry himself is doing at the moment.”
And after chiding the American press for not asking Kerry any questions about his hypocrisy, Carson touted an Icelandic journalist for putting him on the spot for the private jet. Kerry said, “It’s the only choice for somebody like me who is traveling the world to win this battle. I believe the time it takes me to get somewhere. I can’t sail across the ocean. I have to fly to meet with people and get things done.”
“It’s the only choice for someone like me,” Carlson declared, as if he was Kerry. “It’s the only choice for someone like me. Why do you have a 12,000 square foot house on the water in Nantucket? It’s the only choice for someone like me. Not a choice you are allowed to have.”
Now that the Democrats have total control of the White House and Congress they are much less inclined to give a damn about the appearance of impropriety. A case in point is Jake Sullivan, who was an aggressive user of Hillary Clinton’s illegal private email server, has been chosen by President Joe Biden to be the White House National Security Adviser. A man who frequently used an email server that was unsecured and vulnerable to foreign hacking, and in fact the fired and disgraced former FBI director James Comey said that it was “possible that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s personal e-mail account.” What exactly was the Biden team thinking when they made the decision to make Sullivan national security adviser? These are White House people. Are we to believe they do not have access to that kind of information, or do they just not care what it looks like to the American people?
Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland was known to have ties to Christopher Steele, the ex British spy who conjured up the phony dossier that was used against Donald Trump to create the Russia collusion hoax that was initiated by Hillary Clinton in an effort to get the new media to not focus on her illegal private email server. At first, Nuland tried to downplay her role in spreading the fake dossier. When Senate Intel Chairman Richard Burr asked Nuland if she had a role in an October 2016 briefing Steele gave to the State Department she responded, “I did not,” and followed up with “I actively chose not to be part of that briefing.” But she later told a different tale when she mentioned to CBS’s “Face the Nation” that Steele “passed two to four pages of short points of what he was finding and our immediate reaction to that was, this is not in our purview” and instead should be of interest to the FBI. But then there was a 302 memo of an FBI interview with Bruce Ohr the at the time 4th highest-ranking person in the Department of Justice from Nov. 22, 2016, and the agents wrote down in the 302 document that “OHR knew Glen [sic] Simpson and others were talking to Victoria Nuland at the U.S. State Departmartment,” so she may not have been honest about her involvement in the first attempted government coup in our nation’s history.
White House domestic adviser Susan Rice, who is a known liar, once went on all the Sunday news programs and said that the Benghazi terror attacks on a US embassy that ended with the murder of four Americans, including the American Ambassador, happened in retaliation to an anti-Muslim YouTube video that apparently no one really saw or knew about. It was later revealed through communications that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had with leaders in Libya and Egypt and email communication with her daughter, who used the pseudonym “Diane Reynolds,” that the attack came from an al Qaeda-like terrorist group.
She also wrote the 11th-hour email to herself reminding herself that President Obama did everything “by the book” over the Russian scandal. Rice also lied when she said she had nothing to do with unmasking Trump campaign people for political purposes. Rice told MSNBC in 2017 that “the allegation is that somehow Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes. That is absolutely false.” Then how was Lt. General Mike Flynn unmasked for his phone call with the Russian ambassador about Barack Obama kicking Russian diplomats out of the country even though Flynn’s name does not appear on any government unmasking list? Because President Obama did the unmasking request and by law unmasking requests made by the president do not get listed with other unmasking requests. The entire thing was political.
Less than two weeks ago Melissa Hodgman was named Acting Director of the Division of Enforcement of the Securities and Exchange Commission. She is married to Peter Strzok the fired and disgraced former FBI agent who was sleeping with former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, both of whom were involved in the active government coup attempt to frame Donald Trump for something they knew from the very beginning he didn’t do. Strzok was the agent who ran the fraudulent operation Crossfire Hurricane against the Trump campaign for Russian collusion.
We’ve never seen a bigger amount of people who were involved in past scandals be chosen to run agencies and departments before. Some Republicans are seeing a pattern.
“If you look at the larger picture, the Russia hoaxers, the people that were pushing this out from the very beginning and lying about it after the fact, they’re all at the top echelons of the Biden administration,” former House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA), the man who first exposed the Spygate conspiracy said on Sunday during an appearance on Fox’s “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo.
Nunes has a problem with Hodgman’s new appointment saying while she “could be a great public servant,” it created the appearance of a Democratic payback to her husband for pursuing Trump.
“Looks like Peter Strozk is actually going to get reimbursed for all of his troubles,” Nunes said. “The guy lost his job, but nothing’s happened to him at this point.”
Some high-ranking US Intelligence officials were very concerned heading into the 2016 election about the fact that the Russians were fully aware that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was planning to smear Donald Trump with lies of being a Russian agent. They were so concerned that they personally briefed then President Barack Obama about it, according to freshly declassified CIA documents. Apparently, CIA officials asked the FBI to look into Russian knowledge of the Clinton campaign’s slimy smear operation. Remember, other recent declassified documents showed that it was Clinton who started the whole Russian collusion delusion in an effort to get the news focus off of her illegal private email server.
Handwritten notes from former Obama CIA Director John Brennan were just declassified, showing that the Intelligence community knew back in 2016 that Russian intelligence was monitoring, and possibly pushing disinformation into Clinton’s anti-Trump Russian collusion lies. The amount of intelligence over Russia’s familiarity of Clinton’s plans were so troubling to Brennan and other national security people that they informed Obama about it in the summer of 2016 inside the Oval Office.
The handwritten notes by Brennan were declassified by John Ratcliffe, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), and he presented them to Congress on Tuesday.
The notes reveal that Brennan and US intelligence people knew months before the 2016 election that the collusion nonsense was the result of a campaign operation Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. They knew it, they reported it, and then did exactly what Barack Obama told them to do, which allegedly was to help her cover it up.
“We’re getting additional insight into Russian activities from [REDACTED],” Brennan’s handwritten notes state. “Cite alleged approval by Hillary Clinton–on 26 July–of a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisers to villify [sic] Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security services.”
John Brennan knew the entire time, from 2016 onward, that it was Hillary Clinton who made it up and he never said a word to the press. Brennan continued to act like Donald Trump colluded with the Russians. What a piece of s***.
Brennan, at the time probably thinking Clinton was going to win, wrote the news to memorialize a meeting held at the White House with Obama and his top national security advisers. He was probably attempting to prove to Clinton that he should be kept on as CIA director. “Look what I did for you.”
The jackass Included in his notes responses from other participants in the meeting, including former White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice, former White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, and former DNI James Clapper, but those responses are redacted for obvious reasons. This means they all knew from the very beginning.
Naturally they redacted a response to a question by Obama on whether or not they had any actual evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. I suspect they were covering their butts. I would love to read those notes unredacted.
Some officials at CIA and other intel agencies suspected from the very beginning that many of the claiming made for the Trump collusion bullschtein story was nothing but Russian infiltrated disinformation. Ratcliffe just last week declassified a memo based on Brennan’s notes citing that Russian intelligence was aware of Clinton’s plans, and that alone increased the likelihood that there was a bunch of Russian disinformation involved.
In November 2020, Attorney General Bill Barr informed Congress that the FBI was so worried about a Russian spy named Igor Danchenko they listed him as the “Primary Sub-Source” used by Christopher Steele, the former British spy who was bought and paid for by a Russian oligarch, who was hired by Hillary Clinton to write the Steele dossier, which has since been thoroughly debunked. Danchenko is the one who provided the most outrageous, salacious, crazy town allegations against Trump. In fact, the FBI listed him as a national security threat and investigated him to find out if he was in fact a Russian spy, but when he left the country they dropped the case.
Even though slime ball Democrats like Adam Schiff (D-CA), Maxine Waters (D-CA), Eric the Chines puppet Swalwell (D-CA) ran around claiming, without providing a single piece of evidence, that the latest declassifications are also Russian disinformation, numerous intel people said that the CIA is still convinced that Russian intelligence genuinely believes that Hillary Clinton launched the smear campaign against Donald Trump and his campaign, citing Russian collusion, just to distract from her illegal private email server. People forget that in October of 2017, the top lawyer for the Clinton campaign and the DNC admitted publicly that he himself hired the Democrat opposition research company Fusion GPS.
According to a recent report, Mitch McConnell plans to use the power of his office to prevent Joe Biden from appointing a radical cabinet of far left kooks. This will extend to judges as well. If he becomes president, Joe Biden will have the right to nominate anyone he wishes to fill vacancies in his cabinet and on the federal bench. But the Senate is not obligated to give him a blank check.
Some of the possible appointments that McConnell would block include former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates and failed 2018 Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams. You can add any member of the Squad, Maxine Waters, Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.
“A source close to McConnell tells Axios a Republican Senate would work with Biden on centrist nominees but no ‘radical progressives’ or ones who are controversial with conservatives. The Biden agenda would be severely restricted by GOP control, the source added: ‘It’s going to be armed camps.’”
McConnell has allegedly said he is willing to work with Biden on centrist nominees but that he will not allow Biden to appoint radicals into the new administration. Democrats could try to turn this into a food fight but considering how their radical agenda played out in the elections, I can’t see them making it worse.
Biden will not be helped by the midterm Senate elections as there are only one or two possible pick ups for the Democrats and a half a dozen for Republicans. Two years of a Biden/Harris administration won’t help vulnerable Democratic candidates in 2022. Two more years of riots won’t help either.
The outlet concluded that the dynamics of a split government could ultimately force Biden to take a centrist approach to his Cabinet picks should he win the election.
There is also speculation that such a scenario would give Biden an excuse not to give high-level jobs to far-left Democratic senators such as Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.
Former Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken was linked by Axios to a potential State Department vacancy, while Federal Reserve Board of Governors member Lael Brainard was linked to a potential Treasury Department vacancy.
Early on in my life, someone told me, good things come to those who wait. I wish they would have continued, And to those who don’t, things tend to go wrong”. Millions of us have been patiently waiting for those involved in the “Russian Hoax” to be brought to justice. Well after 3 plus years we are still anxiously hoping that AG Barr’s DOJ, using Special Prosecutor John Durham’s report, to bring down the hammer.
On the bright side, there is news coming out of well-connected reporters, like John Solomon, who are seeing a lot of activity in DC which could lead to indictments filed before the November elections.
Top investigative reporter John Solomon says there is a “lot of activity” in U.S. Attorney John Durham’s criminal investigation of the Obama administration’s investigation of the now-debunked claims of Trump-Russia collusion throughout the 2016 election. The whole thing can be summed up to interfering in an election. That’s ironic, because Obama, Susan Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and the rest went on nonstop about how serious it is to have an election interfered with.
“My sources tell me there’s a lot of activity. I’m seeing, personally, activity behind the scenes of the Justice Department,” Solomon said on Tuesday, adding that Durham’s team “is trying to bring those first indictments, and I would look for a time around Labor Day to see the first sort of action by the Justice Department.”
Solomon insisted that he is “seeing a lot of activity consistent with building prosecutions and preparing for criminal plea bargains,” but also acknowledged that none of this may lead to anything.
“That doesn’t mean it’ll happen,” Solomon said. “Until someone signs and until they bring them before the grand jury. You never know if it’s going to happen.”
Solomon said he is hearing from defense lawyers and people “on the prosecution side” that complications with the coronavirus pandemic are “slowing down” the grand jury process.
“But everything I’m seeing on the ground, real reporting, suggests that there’s an ongoing criminal investigation intent on bringing indictments and possibly some plea bargains. The first action, the first evidence of it in the public will probably be around Labor Day. That’s an awfully long time to wait, but I do see activity that looks like they’re building a criminal case right now,” he said.
As a conservative I would love to have the indictments drop before the elections, helping the GOP, but in the end, I want convictions. If this means we need to wait until early next year for ironclad charges, then let it be. Justice is in the balance as the world is watching to see if the US successfully brings to justice those involved in the largest coup d’etat in American history.
