Another Reason For McMaster To Go

Finding moral equivalence between anti-Western Muslim dictatorships and Israel, which shares our Western value system, is not just a folly, it is a dangerous misunderstanding of the realities of the Middle East that confirms H.R. McMaster is unfit to serve as President Trump's National Security Advisor.

Democrats Cannot Be Trusted With Classified Intelligence

The organized campaign of leaks of classified intelligence coming from former Obama officials are confirming an old Republican criticism that Democrats really hate: "Democrats can't be trusted with national security."

Chairman Nunes Plows Ahead With Unmasking Investigation

Debra Heine, PJ Media

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes sent three subpoenas to the CIA, FBI, and NSA, asking for details about any unmasking requests made by former national security adviser Susan Rice, former U.N. ambassador Samantha Power, and former CIA director John Brennan in 2016 and January 2017.

A Scandal So Great It Has No Name

The intentional targeting of Obama’s political opponents – even members of Congress, reporters, business people, citizens is becoming more obvious says former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova, who calls for a federal grand jury to reveal the truth about the Obama-era intelligence leakers and their abuse of power.

Susan Rice’s Revealing Twitter Account

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

To press flunkies, Susan Rice casts her espionage as high-minded, national-security-based vigilance. But on her Twitter account she doesn’t bother to keep up that charade. That she would re-tweet the partisan hackery of someone like the Washington Post's E.J. Dionne indicates the depth of partisanship behind her espionage.

The Obama Administration’s Zelig

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Is Susan Rice’s chronic deception socio-pathological? Or is she more a tragic figure, whose outsized ego was manipulated by the Obama administration to ensure that she was on spec, wheeled out as its most devoted apologist, the most practiced in the arts of deception, the most media-hungry, and the most likely to be exempt from criticism?

Obamagate’s Truth Is Stranger Than Orwell’s Fiction

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The English author George Orwell wrote that “political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” But even Orwell couldn’t have imagined the propagandistic whoppers that American journalists would mouth in their frenzied attempt to sanitize Obama’s spying on Trump.

Susan Rice’s White House Unmasking: A Watergate-style Scandal

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

The national-security adviser is not an investigator. She is a White House staffer. The president’s staff is a consumer of intelligence, not a generator or collector of it. If Susan Rice was unmasking Americans, it was not to fulfill an intelligence need based on American interests; it was to fulfill a political desire based on Democratic-party interests.

Susan Rice somehow manages to make Benghazi cover-up seem minor

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

Investigate Russia all you want. Even if that inquiry bears fruit, it will be about as scandalous as Richard Nixon going to China. But an administration actively spying on political opponents during a presidential election, unmasking U.S. citizens and then punishing them with selective leaks to the press? That is a real scandal. And a constitution crisis that raises dire questions about whether any American citizen is safe from the espionage thuggery of the politically powerful.

Susan Rice must testify to Congress

Editors, Washington Examiner

As Trump's team prepared to take over the federal government, intelligence services' surveillance of foreign officials incidentally popped up with conversations about or involving members of Team Trump. Not only should journalists be taking this issue seriously, but Congress also owes it to the public to get the bottom of Rice's inconsistent account of what happened and discover whether it was indeed improper.

The Media Gives Short Schiff to Obamagate

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Obama once ludicrously said that his administration had no scandals — a phony claim that the media pooh-poohing the Rice revelation is jealously trying to preserve. But no matter how hard they try to avoid it, reporters will have to reckon with Obamagate and the perversely rich irony of ACLU-style liberals like Rice and Brennan becoming exactly what they once opposed.

Susan Rice, Obama's Hatchet Woman, Proves Lord Acton Right Again

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

As the scandal evolves, will the finger point even higher? In fact, it already has.  Unbeknownst to almost all of the American public, back in 2011 Barack Obama eased the rules on the unmasking of American citizens in NSA surveillances, putatively to counter foreign espionage threats. Six years later and the tables have been turned on us. Was that always the intention? Or was it simply absolute power corrupting absolutely?

Washington Officials Should Stop Stressing about the World

Obviously the world is a messy place. But what stresses American policymakers? It’s not the problem of defending the U.S. No other country has a conventional capability to reach America. Thus, America's national security team need not worry about the sort of potential threats facing virtually every other nation.

Obama Takes “High Degree of Personal Control” of War: JV ISIS Now Winning

For once the buck has to stop on Obama’s desk and he must take responsibility for the success or failure of the bombing campaign he initiated and over which, according to multiple reports, he exercises “a high degree of personal control.”

Cruz: Obama Aims to Release Another GITMO Terrorist

Right Scoop Staff

Ted Cruz responded to Reid’s allegations that R's were using the Bergdahl trade as a political ploy. Cruz says he's heard that Obama may release another terrorist. He'll file legislation to stop the release of any GITMO terrorists until the Bergdahl transfer truth is discovered.

New Benghazi Witnesses?

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., American Spectator

Susan Rice's "best information" has gotten better.
