A Handy Evasion

Susan Rice, National Security Advisor, Obama, Trump, Russia, spying, surveillance

Susan Rice, National Security Advisor in President Barack Obama’s administration (2013 – 2017), is being picked on, she speculates, for reasons pertaining to her race and gender.

Handy evasion.

At issue is not her infamous prevarication in the Benghazi affair. We are used to being lied to about foreign policy, so that was barely a shock.

What is news now? The Trump-Russia story.

Background: Ever since her defeat to Donald Trump, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has provided the very model of how to deflect attention from one’s own defects. She’s blamed FBI Director James Comey, the vast right wing conspiracy, and, of course, Russia.*

Amusingly, the Russia biz still boils down to how Russian hackers, apparently directed from high in the hierarchy of the Eastern warlord state, illegally liberated information from private servers. Those revealed emails showed Mrs. Clinton and her campaign in a negative light. Excuse-makers call this “hacking the election.”**

It turns out, the biggest crimes committed during the campaign, and somewhat regarding Russia, were engaged in by the Obama Administration, perhaps especially by Rice herself. She is accused of illegally surveilling the Trump campaign and those around it by “unmasking” their identities in the course of surveillance reports, which are legally required to be anonymous . . . when catching in the net folks tangential to the target.

The law requires FISA court go-aheads for such identifications. And the Obama administration was roundly reprimanded by a FISA court for not following protocols.

In any case, the idea that only women and African-Americans are hounded by opposition parties and the press does not hold up to scrutiny.

Nixon, anyone?

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.


* Her team has also blamed President Barack Obama

** A private server was hacked, not an election.

    Like most liberals, they can dish it out but they can’t take it.
    If you’;re going to play a victim then you should not aspire to a position of leadership..
    Where is Margaret Thatcher when we need her?
    When Hillary Clinton complained about the ‘vast right wing conspiracy’, she was finis.
    Hillary Rodham never would have made it in politics.  Without Bill, she was nothing.
    As for Susan Rice, not to worry.  She’ll never face justice.  None of them will.   Justice is for the little people.   The ‘elites’  (in their own minds, anyway) play by a different set of rules.

    Lying, cheating, criminal acts; they’re all okay as long as you’re protected by the proper “race and gender”.

  3. John F Brennan says:

    Any excuse is exponentially preferably to seeing a true image in the mirror. 
    There is little surprise here as the progressives believe there is always something responsible other than the individual. 

  4. Rocketman says:

    That’s standard operating procedure for the criminal cabal called the Democrat Party of today. (The party of Thomas Jefferson is long dead but not yet buried.) Always blame the other party for something just before you start doing it yourself. Standard Clouse-Pevin playbook.

  5. Carl Fisher says:

    Forget Nixon. Watergate was lightweight stuff compared to this…

  6. Karen H says:

    The news coming out about the Obama White House is chilling. The President that promised the greatest transparency has had the greatest lies & collusion. Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, Clinton dealings while she was Sec’y of State, etc.

    Hey, Paul, what about the reality that Pres Obama knew about Russian meddling in the election a full month before & did nothing?

    Persecution because she’s black & a woman… how convenient!
