More Lies From Obama Mouthpiece

More Lies From Obama Mouthpiece

In one of his frequent appearances on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, former Obama Press Secretary Josh Earnest was asked to comment on differing statements between UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, who announced new Russia sanctions, and the White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow, who indicated that Haley was a bit ahead of the curve.

To be expected, the #NeverTrump news media hyped this tempest in a teapot to a lead story – suggesting all sorts of catastrophic outcomes across the globe. According to the jaded journalists, this was further evidence of an administration in chaos. It also fit into their equally overhyped narrative that Trump is soft on Russia – after all, he is the one, they assume, who put the kibosh on the latest round of proposed sanctions.

The preferred puppet-of-the-day, to support MSNBC’s fact-challenged narrative-of-the-day, was Earnest. True to form, the former Obama mouthpiece said that this was a critical lack of coordination and inability to get the story straight. Of course, this kind of “mistake” would never have happened in the Obama White House. Right?

Was Earnest the victim of political amnesia or was it a case of political hypocrisy? In a much more dramatic case, with huge negative ramifications, the Obama White House sent out National Security Advisor Susan Rice to say that the deadly attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi was the result of a video that offended ISIS. There was a violent attack on the United States that led to several deaths, including the American ambassador. And, worst of all, the Rice narrative was totally false … made up … a grand lie. Dare we call it “fake news”?

The misinformation spread by Rice was not a one-off deal. She made the rounds on Sunday shows to peddle the bogus story. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton proffered the bogus story to the American public – even as she privately informed foreign heads-of-state that it was not true.

As is not so often the case, the truth trumped the disinformation campaign. The American people eventually learned that the attack was planned and had nothing to do with the video.

The one good thing about the Kudlow/Haley kerfuffle is that it won’t become one of those never-ending speculative and wishful thinking type news stories that dominate the obsessive anti-Trump media – you know, Russian collusion, the firing of Mueller, the firing of Rosenstein and Kelly resigning.

If Josh Earnest were not earnest, we would think he was just joshing.

    Obama stated he was “bored” in his Presidential palace. Now we have a true leader in THE PEOPLES HOUSE!

    I don’t think our first truly committed elected November 8th; hasn’t had a chance to be bored.

    President Trump has accomplished more in one year than has been done for decades!

      Oh, I don’t know. The last guy saved the economy, killed Bin Laden, prevented any more mass terror attacks, cut the deficit in half, and improved our image worldwide, and in his spare time, won a Nobel Prize. What did your guy do?

        Really? He saved the economy? How? He tried to spend his way through it to generate a stimulus that was an absolute failure. Those actions never provide a lasting stimulus and it increased the national debt by $10T while simultaneously reducing military spending and ignoring North Korea and sending $150B to Iran. The idiot is quoted as saying 2% growth is the new norm – and he couldn’t even accomplish that coming out of the worst recession since the Great Depression. Obama is a progressive liberal that knows nothing an economy or a business. His solution was to spend more and tax more – and his results on the economy once again prove it does not work. I see you use the FDR moniker. You do realize there is still considerable debate about whether his New Deal extended the Depression. It did. However, it did accomplish putting Americans back to work quickly, but it lengthened their suffering for over a decade.

        You’re dreaming on most of those counts. Obama killed the economy, caused more terror attacks by causing the rise of ISIS, kissed ass and cowed down to the rest of the world. Sure Bin Laden was killed on his watch but due to work that was started well before he was elected. Sure he won the Nobel Peace Prize but he never did anything to have earned it. He should have had it revoked and made to pay it back.

        Seal Team 6 killed Bin Laden, Obama opened the door for anyone to enter the country and he more than doubled the National Debt. BTW the Nobel Prize was voted on before he even took office. Had not done a thing, Political Prize.

    Benghazi has been debunked time and again. And yet the right wing continues to use it as justification for their mistakes. Why not just admit you goofed and move on?

      What has been debunked? That it did not happen? That the democrats lied about what caused the attack? Or was it that Hillary was let off the hook for not providing protection to the embassy and then did nothing while the attack was taking place? Do you even know where Benghazi is located?

    Why are Obama’s school records locked up. I heard he was protesting against the America, while in school. Let’s see those sealed records. What does he have to hide, or are they picking on Trump because he is a Republican. Maybe if they got Obama’s records everything his did would be void.

    Why are we still hearing about these liars, crooks and Obama flunkies. His whole campaign was to better themselves and nobody else. Democrats want for themselves and nobody else. Tired of hearing about loser, Earnest, Rice, Obama, Holder, Kerry. A lot of them should be in jail but our Congress fails to charge anyone except Trumps people. Shows how one sided this country is Democrats collude with Russia and Trump is framed. People who vote Democratic do not get their head out of the sand and listen or watch to see what is going on with the DNC and its people.
