Y’all know one of my favorite points of order is to evidence progressive socialist hypocrisy. It’s so very easy to do, but of course the liberal progressive media seems to have problems presenting “fair and balanced” coverage. It’s quite disconcerting when you flip over to ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS, MSNBC and you feel like you’re living in an alternative universe. I mean the most recent endeavor into the realm of the twilight zone by the leftist media is about Michael Brown. You remember that thug from Ferguson, Missouri who strong-armed a store owner and then attempted to take an Officer Darrin Wilson’s firearm? There’s a “revelation” by way of undisclosed video, that Brown only took the cigarillos because he was owed them in an exchange for drugs, so he really committed no crime…pathetic.
Well, we’ve just about had it with the leftist assertions that Russia influenced the 2016 presidential election in favor of Donald Trump. Of course there has been NO evidence solidifying those claims, just fake news from the left; distractions.
However, there is someone who’s guilty of seeking to influence foreign elections.
Ok, stand by: “HYPOCRISY ALERT.”
As reported by the impeccable Adam Kredo at the Washington Free Beacon, “A group of leading senators is calling on newly installed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to immediately launch an investigation into efforts by the Obama administration to sway foreign elections by sending taxpayer funds to “extreme and sometimes violent political activists” that promote leftist causes, according to a copy of the letter.
The lawmakers disclosed multiple conversations with foreign diplomats who outlined active political meddling by the Obama administration’s State Department, including the use of taxpayer funds to support leftist causes in Macedonia, Albania, Latin America, and Africa. A portion of this State Department funding appears to have gone to organizations supported by the controversial liberal billionaire George Soros, according to the letter, which was authored by Republican Sens. Mike Lee (Utah), Jim Inhofe (Okla.), Thom Tillis (N.C.), Ted Cruz (Texas), David Perdue (Ga.), and Bill Cassidy (La.).
The senators are asking Tillerson to launch a full-scale investigation into these funding efforts in order to determine how exactly the Obama administration sought to promote left-leaning causes and political parties across the globe. The latest disclosures of this activity mirror efforts by the Obama administration to send taxpayer funds to Israeli organizations that opposed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the country’s last election.
Political leaders from a range of nations spent months informing the lawmakers about these activities. “Over the past few months, elected officials and political leaders of foreign nations have been coming to me with disappointing news and reports of U.S. activity in their respective countries,” Lee said in a statement. “This includes reports of diplomats playing political favorites, USAID funds supporting extreme and sometimes violent political activists, and the U.S. government working to marginalize the moderates and conservatives in leadership roles.” “This sort of political favoritism from our missions around the world is unacceptable and endangers our bilateral relationships,” he said.”
We’ve shared with y’all here the issue of Obama campaign operatives working against Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s reelection. And where was the liberal progressive media? You always hear the leftists rambling on about Ronald Reagan and Iran-Contra, but the leftist media in America says not a peep about Barack Obama giving billions of dollars to the number one state sponsor of Islamic terrorism, Iran.
How many countries did Obama destabilize all to the advantage of Islamic jihadists? Heck, I can think of one for sure: Libya. There are clear and present examples of why the left leaning media has NO credibility with greater America. Can you imagine if the left had evidence that the Koch Brothers were supporting libertarian causes in foreign nations? Yes, they’d have their hair on fire — as a matter of fact, Chris Matthews would be spitting all over the set in unrighteous indignation. However, I don’t presume we’ll hear anything from the complicit cronies of the leftist media.
There has been no indication of President Trump’s collusion with Russia, but don’t let the lack of evidence get in the way of the fakes, phonies, and charlatans of the left. Did we EVER hear the liberal media discussing the shakedown fines levied against financial institutions by the Obama administration who then funneled those funds to domestic left wing organizations? All the while Obama and his IRS henchmen were threatening and assailing the constitutional conservative grassroots organizations, but move along said the liberal media, nothing to see here.
Look, if ol’ Georgie boy — who truly reminds me of the Sith Lord of the evil empire from Star Wars — wants to use his own money, fine, but to funnel U.S. taxpayer dollars for the advancement of the global progressive socialist movement, that ain’t right. But, do not expect any of this to make the Rachel Maddow Show.
“The letter insists that Tillerson should “review how all our tax dollars are being utilized in order to halt activities that are fomenting political unrest, disrespecting national sovereignty and civil society, and ultimately undermine our attempts to build beneficial international relationships.” The lawmakers outline specific evidence of political meddling. “We have received credible reports that, over the past few years, the U.S. Mission there has actively intervened in the party politics of Macedonia, as well as in the shaping of its media environment and civil society, often favoring left-leaning political groups over others,” they wrote. This activity was pushed by USAID and groups associated with Soros’ Open Society Foundations, according to the lawmakers. The organizations are said to have pushed a “progressive agenda” meant to “invigorate the political left” using taxpayer funds, according the letter.”
What truly angers me about this story is that we have Obama and Soros funneling taxpayer funds to support leftist causes domestically as well as internationally. This was happening while our U.S. military was starving for resources. We have much of our combat aviation fleet grounded. We have our combat warriors going out and purchasing much of their own gear. And these individuals and this person, Obama, were sacrificing our men and women in uniform in order to spread the insidious Marxist cancer.
And what is more disturbing is that this will not receive widespread coverage. Nope, it’s all about the Russians. And the liberal progressive media continues to turn a blind eye to the utter corruption of the eight years of the most deplorable presidential administration, that of Barack Hussein Obama. Richard Nixon resigned over a simple breaking and entering. Barack Obama continues to be a dark specter and pestilence that infected our Republic. Are those harsh words? Damn right, but I have very little respect or regard for someone who abandoned Americans to die…and lied about it.
Then again, according to the liberal progressive media, nothing happened in Benghazi, just four Americans dead, and who knows how many severely wounded. But, as long as it’s their folks, they’ll never care, nor report it.
