Susan Rice Urges ‘Peace in Our Time’ on NoKorea Nukes | Aug 10, 2017

Susan Rice Urges Donald Trump to ‘Tolerate Nuclear Weapons in North Korea’

|| theGatewayPundit

“Despite playing a key role in an administration responsible for one of the weakest foreign policies since the Carter White House, ex-Obama official Susan Rice believes her opinions still hold weight – particularly on the issue of North Korea. Rice is urging President Trump to ‘tolerate’ North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.

Breitbart News reports on Rice’s New York Times op-ed:

“History shows that we can, if we must, tolerate nuclear weapons in North Korea — the same way we tolerated the far greater threat of thousands of Soviet nuclear weapons during the Cold War,” she wrote in a New York Times op-ed, criticizing the president’s “fire and fury” rhetoric in response to the escalating tensions between the two countries.

Rice urged Gen. John Kelly, White House chief of staff, to stop Trump, and she pointedly attacked Dr. Sebastian Gorka, the deputy assistant to the president.

“John Kelly, Mr. Trump’s chief of staff, must assert control over the White House, including his boss, and curb the Trump surrogates whipping up Cuban missile crisis fears,” she wrote.

Rice complained that Trump’s rhetoric was “unprecedented and especially dangerous” and that America would have to be cautious about its response to Pyongyang.

She defended Obama’s actions in response to North Korea, insisting that his administration put them “on edge” by conducting joint military exercises with South Korea and introducing more economic sanctions.

President Trump is faced with one of the most challenging foreign policy questions in a generation: Should the U.S. go to war with North Korea? Such a decision may not have been necessary had the previous administration taken the Hermit Kingdom more seriously. A FOX News report reveals the Obama White House downplayed North Korea’s nuclear missile program back in 2013. Was this done to avoid taking on North Korean issue?”

Federal Judge Orders State Dept To Search Hillary Aides’ Accounts For Benghazi Records

|| Daily Caller

“The search for State Department emails regarding the Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks received a boost this week when a federal judge ordered the agency to search the government email accounts of several Hillary Clinton aides.

Washington D.C. District Court Judge Amit Mehta, an Obama appointee, ordered State to search the accounts of Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills and Jake Sullivan, Clinton’s top aides at the State Department, in response to a lawsuit filed by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Mehta said that the State Department did not do enough to search for all emails it has on its computer systems regarding the Benghazi attacks, which left four Americans dead.

The State Department reviewed the 30,000-plus emails that Clinton returned to the agency in Dec. 2014. It has also searched emails that Abedin, Mills and Sullivan sent and received on personal accounts.

“Secretary Clinton used a private email server, located in her home, to transmit and receive work-related communications during her tenure as Secretary of State,” Mehta said.

“[State] has not, however, searched the one records system over which it has always had control and that is almost certain to contain some responsive records: the state.gov email server.”

Mehta said that the State Department “has offered no assurance” that the records it has received so far from Clinton and the trio of aides “constitute the entirely of Secretary Clinton’s emails during the time period relevant to Plaintiff’s FOIA request.”

Judicial Watch, which has pursued several lawsuits related to Clinton emails despite her election loss, celebrated Mehta’s order.

“This major court ruling may finally result in more answers about the Benghazi scandal — and Hillary Clinton’s involvement in it — as we approach the attack’s fifth anniversary,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said in a statement.

“It is remarkable that we had to battle both the Obama and Trump administrations to break through the State Department’s Benghazi stonewall. Why are Secretary Tillerson and Attorney General Sessions wasting taxpayer dollars protecting Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration?”

Clueless Senators Obsess Over Gay & Lesbian Affirmative Action at CIA and Defense nominee hearings | Jan 2017

Senator Kamala Harris grills Trump nominee Pompeo on CIA affirmative action for gays and lesbians at CIA

– Youtube

More video @ Youtube

Note: In an increasingly dangerous world, newly minted Senator Harris asked the astoundingly absurd of question of whether nominee designate Pompeo will commit to posting wives and families of CIA agents in the field. Can she really be that stupid? In a word, yes. Below she asks Pompeo to base CIA policy and strategy on climate change.

Why are these female Senators obsessing over gay and lesbian rights in the middle of a newly enflamed Cold War?

Fukushima, the Colorado poisoned by the Obama EPA, foreign hacking of the United States information infrastructure and militrary. 

Is this really the number one problem the United States faces? 

Why aren’t they as focused on issues facing women in the military with the fierceness and determination they seem to pursue this particular agenda?

Freshman Democrat Kamala Harris grills CIA director nominee on climate change

– Washington Examiner

“Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., grilled CIA director Mike Pompeo on whether climate change was a leading national security threat during his Senate confirmation hearings Thursday.

“CIA Director Brennan, who has spent a 25-year career at the CIA as an analyst, a senior manager and station chief in the field, has that when ‘CIA analysts look for deeper causes of rising instability in the world, one of the causes those CIA analysts see is the impact of climate change,'” Harris began. “Do you have any reason to doubt the assessment of those CIA analysts?”

Pompeo, a Republican congressman from Kansas, replied that he was unfamiliar with the material Harris was referencing but that the CIA would gather information on all threats to American security, including any that stem from climatic activity, and present them to policymakers.

“In the past you have questioned the scientific consensus on climate change,” Harris followed up. She began to cite NASA and various other sources saying that at least 97 percent of active climate scientists believe in global warming caused by human activity.

Pompeo attempted to reassure her that he could accept intelligence conclusions regardless of his personal ideology.

Harris also questioned Pompeo about his past opposition to gay marriage and how that would affect his treatment of CIA employees if confirmed.”

Blood On Her Hands! Hacked Hillary Emails Reveal She Knowingly Delayed Benghazi Rescue – Exclusive

– RadarOnline

“Hillary Clinton refused to send help as the terrifying Benghazi attacks unfolded, according to messages allegedly hacked from her email server and distributed by Russian operatives.

RadarOnline has obtained a report about the allegedly hacked messages that was created by Italy’s foreign intelligence agency, or the Agenzia Informazioni e Sicurezza Esterna, after a meeting with their Russian counterparts on October 22. (These files were written in Italian, and then translated by a respected New York City professor of the language.)

One section of the report deals with September 2012 — the same month as the attack that killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, and three others. In an alleged message from Clinton to top aide Huma Abedin, the secretary made it clear she wasn’t going to rush to take action.

““Avoid that they appeal to the AUMF, lets give a political weight to the wait, take time,” the message reads. (The acronym AUMF most likely refers to an “authorization for the use of military force.”)

The text continues, “What has happened has happened, at Sigonella they are standing still, they have to remain firm.”

Sigonella almost certainly refers to Naval Air Station Sigonella, located in the Italian island region of Sicily. According to reports, a US Air Force source once claimed that attack jets were being armed and fueled at Aviano Air Force Base in northern Italy on Sept. 11, 2012, or the night of the Benghazi attacks. The source has said the jets could have refueled at Sigonella, which is located some 400 miles from Benghazi, and helped stave off the slaughter.

But according to the message, Clinton insisted, “the more hours go by the better it is,” claiming, “it will seem that he is not able to take a decision about an international scenario.” Was she trying to make President Barack Obama look bad?

What is troubling, is that fact that Huma Abeding was auto forwarding or achiving all her emails with Hillary to an insecure Yahoo account. If our adversaries had access to that content, as Huma emailed to Hillary in real-time, they would have had unbelievable real-time intelligence. /CJ 

 

 

Benghazi Attack Proves No One In Charge at Obama White House on 9/11 2012 | Sep 2016

It Took Obama Six Hours to Respond to Benghazi and Hillary Didn’t Find Him

– Breitbart

Where was the President? And why didn’t Hillary or anyone try to find him?

Who was in charge? No one?  Is the Obama presidency just a reality tv show?

“President Obama did not personally respond to Benghazi on the night of the attack until more than six hours after the White House convened an emergency conference call, according to little-noticed State Department records reviewed by Breitbart News.

Obama’s six-hour absence, during which the United States military did not have presidential orders to enter Libyan airspace to potentially save Americans, was apparently not interrupted by Hillary Clinton.

“For the president of the United States to have not interjected himself sooner in this process is a tragedy,” Arends said, noting that only President Obama could have obtained permission from the Libyan transitional government to use their airspace to send in the U.S. military.

“Why did it never happen? Where was the president during this time?…He should have known that we had to request a formal order from the Libyan government to enter into their airspace,” Arends said.

Arends thinks that Hillary Clinton should have intervened to find Obama.

“Let’s ask the same questions of the Secretary herself. She’s a lawyer. Why wasn’t she pushing the president to fly Why did she never request presidential permission for our forces to fly into Libyan airspace?” Arends asked.”

Essentially, under the Obama Administration, after 4pm in the White House, no one is in charge, and the Secretary of State either couldn’t be bothered to find the President, or didn’t care enough. I didn’t know the presidency was a part time job. 

Hopefully, at the next debate Donald Trump will raise the question: Why didn’t she try to find the president? /CJ 

 

Obama: The Presidency ‘Is Not a Reality Show’ – Really? Wanna Bet?

– USNews

“”I think it’s important for us to take seriously the statements he’s made in the past,” said the president, speaking in the White House press room. “But most importantly – and I speak to all of you in this room as reporters as well as the American public – I just want to emphasize the degree to which we are in really serious times and this is a really serious job.”

He went on: “This is not entertainment. This is not a reality show. This is a contest for the presidency of the United States. And what that means is that every candidate, every nominee, needs to be subject to exacting standards and genuine scrutiny.”

Benghazi Probe Finds Marines’ Response Was Slowed by Uniform Changes

– Military.com

A new congressional report on the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead found that the Marines tasked with responding to the attack had to change in and out of uniform four times, slowing their arrival at the scene of the attack.

The Marine commander of the FAST platoon, unnamed in the report, testified that the Marines’ orders changed constantly as they waited to depart.

“We were told multiple times to change what we were wearing, to change from cammies into civilian attire, civilian attire into cammies, cammies into civilian attire,” he said. “There was also some talk of whether or not we could carry our personal weapons. I was basically holding hard and fast to the point where we were carrying our personal weapons. Like, we’ve got a very violent thing going on the ground where we’re going, so we’re going to be carrying something that can protect ourselves.”

Ultimately, the commander said, the Marines would change in and out of uniform four times.

The report’s authors concluded that these hours of indecision contradicted official statements that the administration had responded with all haste in response to the attacks.

The House report also concluded the uniform issue spoke to a lack of clear leadership.

“The issue of military attire versus civilian clothes illustrated no one seemed to be taking charge and making final decisions,” the authors wrote.

It remains unclear whether the three-hour delay made a difference in the fast-moving events of that night in Libya. Ultimately, the FAST Marines were never ordered to Benghazi.”
