    Obama admin. sent taxpayer money to campaign to oust Netanyahu

    By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Tuesday, July 12, 2016
    The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last year’s Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday

    Some $350,000 was sent to OneVoice, ostensibly to support the group’s efforts to back Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement negotiations. But OneVoice used the money to build a voter database, train activists and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said in a bipartisan staff report.

    Evidence Obama Admin Influenced Israeli Election

    We have previously discussed our ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) case against the Department of State involving our request for public records regarding grants of U.S. funds to the organizations OneVoice Israel and OneVoice Palestine. While the United States regularly issues grants to international organizations that provide services such as humanitarian relief, educational opportunities, and even opportunities and activities aimed at encouraging democratic voter participation, it turns out the OneVoice organizations went well beyond such measures and actively campaigned against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the 2015 elections—using resources established and developed with grant funds from the Obama State Department.


    One of the important discoveries we made, through documents we received in response to our FOIA lawsuit, is that one of the senior advisers to OneVoice Palestine was none other than the son of Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority – something the Obama Administration clearly knew (since these documents were in its possession).

    In short, U.S. taxpayer funds were distributed by the Obama State Department to two sister organizations with clear political goals of undermining—indeed, unseating—the sitting prime minister of a U.S. ally.

    Obama Blocked State Dept Attempt To Look Into Hunter Biden in 2015

    Posted October 18, 2019 in Politics

    On Thursday, the Washington Post confirmed that the Obama Administration deliberately ignored a corruption warning raised in 2015 by top State Department official George Kent regarding Hunter Biden's involvement with Burisma, a large gas company in Ukraine.

    The report reveals that the Obama administration allowed Hunter Biden to hold his board position at Burisma even thought they knew that his involvement with the company was corrupt.

    Top Diplomat Testified That Obama Admin, Not International Community, Orchestrated Ukraine Prosecutor’s Firing
    The Obama administration, not the international community, orchestrated the ouster of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating a company connected to Joe Biden's son, a top diplomat testified to Congress yesterday.
    OCTOBER 16, 2019 By Sean Davis


    A top U.S. diplomat and expert on Ukraine testified to Congress yesterday that the Obama administration — with former Vice President Joe Biden as its point man — orchestrated the firing of the Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating a company connected to the Biden family, sources familiar with the testimony told The Federalist.

    The testimony of George Kent, a State Department official who works on the agency’s Ukraine portfolio, directly contradicts claims that the Obama administration was merely following the lead of the so-called international community in demanding the firing of Viktor Shokin, a controversial Ukrainian prosecutor who was reportedly investigating Burisma, a global energy company long suspected of corruption and money laundering. In 2014, Burisma paid Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, tens of thousands of dollars to sit on its board despite the younger Biden’s complete lack of expertise or professional experience running a multi-national oil and gas concern.

    A Case for Congress and the Trump Justice Department, Not the Courts
    By ANDREW C. MCCARTH
    Eric Holder was the first attorney general in history to be held in contempt of Congress, when he stonewalled committee probes of the Fast and Furious investigation. Fast and Furious itself was a scandal, involving the government’s reckless abuse of investigative powers for the purpose of fabricating an anti-gun narrative. Instead, its “gun walking” resulted in the killing of a federal agent, among other violent crimes.

    ‐Attorney General Holder made misleading representations about both Fast and Furious and the investigation of Fox News journalist James Rosen.

    ‐The IRS’s intimidation and abuse of President Obama’s political opponents, and the cover-up thereof, resulted in no charges and little apparent investigation.

    ‐There were
    politicized prosecutionsagainst Dinesh D’Souza (an Obama critic whose minor campaign-finance infraction was treated as a major felony when more-serious violations are typically disposed of by administrative fine), and Nakoula Basseley Nakoula (the anti-Muslim video producer scapegoated by the Obama administration for the Benghazi massacre).

    ‐Recall the misrepresentations by Justice Department lawyers to a federal court in the litigation over Obama’s lawless immigration non-enforcement programs (DACA and DAPA) — lies the judge found to be “intentional, serious and material.”

    ‐Then there were the Justice Department’s outrageous misconduct and serial lies in a prosecution of New Orleans police, which a federal judge variously described as “bizarre,” “appalling,” and “grotesque” — conclusions upheld by the Fifth Circuit appeals court.

    ‐And, of course, the Clinton e-mails investigation, featuring: Justice Department collusion with Clinton-camp lawyers; inexplicable immunity deals; suspects who received immunity permitted to appear as lawyers for other suspects; no prosecutions despite significant evidence, several immunity grants, and patently misleading statements during FBI interviews; a furtive tarmac tête-à-tête between the attorney general and the main suspect’s husband (the former U.S. president who just happened to have launched the attorney general into public prominence, and who was positioned to influence whether the attorney general got to keep her job in an anticipated Hillary Clinton administration) just days before it was announced — surprise! — that there would be no indictment of Hillary Clinton; and startling public commentary by the FBI regarding an uncharged case that bore heavily on a presidential election.

    Top 10 “Most Corrupt” List Dominated by Obama Administration


    Written by Alex NewmanThursday, 03 January 2013 15:08


    Among the specifics that earned Obama the designation was a shroud of lawless secrecy that permeated the entire administration. Judicial Watch, which investigates and prosecutes official corruption, was forced to file almost 1,000 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and close to 100 lawsuits against the administration to find out what was going on, it said. Despite stonewalling, the group investigated elements of ObamaCare, the showering of taxpayer money on mega Wall Street banks, continued funding of the “criminal ACORN network,” and much more.

    According to the Washington-based group and countless other analysts, while Obama touts transparency in public, he actually condones the routine violation of federal open records laws by his administration in an effort to conceal his activities. There are almost countless examples to prove the point.

    Another series of abuses that helped put the president himself on the widely respected corruption list was the use of unconstitutional and mostly unaccountable “czars” — many of whom were lawlessly put in charge of major government policies and programs. There are now 45 such figures in Washington, and more than a few have been linked to “scandals, thefts and kickbacks, flagrant and offensive statements, conflicts of interest, and radical leftist political ideologies and policies,” according to Judicial Watch, which has been monitoring “czar” developments for years. Obama’s “Green Jobs Czar” Van Jones was even a self-styled communist.

    Also among the reasons cited for Obama’s “corrupt” designation: multiple unconstitutional power grabs employed to advance the administration’s controversial agenda. One of the most brazen, according to former officials and Judicial Watch, was the president’s lawless attempt to unilaterally appoint a number of key officials while getting around the Senate in a corrupt process criticized across the political spectrum.

    The unconstitutional use of “executive orders” to further Obama’s agenda on illegal immigrationdespite clear laws passed by Congress, meanwhile, was also included on the list of his corrupt activities. Finally, the president’s fraudulent and illegal use of so-called “executive privilege” to shield disgraced Attorney General Holder from prosecution over the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal also contributed to the president’s corrupt designation.

    “The list could go on ad infinitum — with Benghazigate, bailouts, abusing the perks of office for luxury vacations for his family, and, of course, his personal involvement in the Solyndra scandal,” the non-profit group said in its listing. “But the bottom line is this: The federal government under Barack Obama is off the rails and out of control. And now, with Obama having been given the ‘flexibility’ of a second term, it can only be expected to get worse.”

    Aside from the president himself, many of his top cabinet officials also wound up on the corruption list. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who has previously appeared on the list, and Obama’s Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, were both listed together. The reason: “Hillary Clinton’s and Rice’s lies about one of the most significant terrorist attacks since 9/11 are, perhaps, the scandal of the year out of this administration,” Judicial Watch noted. That scandal, however, is far from over.

    ACLJ Demands Government Accountability

    Clinton Foundation friends and donors got special treatment from the Obama State Department while Hilary Clinton was Secretary of State.

    The American people deserve accountability from a lawless and corrupt Administration.

    Earlier this week, our brand new Government Accountability Project delivered another round of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to the State Department. By law, it must respond, providing detailed records that could expose any favors or potential pay-to-play corruption that may have occurred.

    Our friends at Judicial Watch uncovered key emails that showed requests for special treatment. Our FOIA requests take the next step: What happened next?

    Here’s a summary of what we know. In one set of emails, Doug Band, a senior Clinton Foundation official, forwarded a request for “a favor” for someone who apparently had joined former-President Bill Clinton and United Nations Secretary-General Ban ki-Moon on an infamous trip to Haiti in 2009. That person’s name was redacted.

    “Important to take care of [redacted],” says Band.

    Then Secretary Clinton’s top aide at the State Department, Huma Abedin, responds: “Personnel has been sending him options.”

    And in a different set of emails with the same players, we learned that the Clinton Foundation – on behalf of a businessman who had donated between $1 to $5 millionto the Clinton Foundation – asked for access to the State Department’s “substance person” for Lebanon.

    Abedin identifies the right State Department “substance person” as Assistant Secretary Jeff Feltman, and promises to “talk to him.” Just 15 minutes later, Band responded: “Better if you talk to him, Now preferable.” And, if there was any doubt: “This is very important.” Other portions of the email were redacted.

    Why did the Clinton Foundation donor need access to the State Department’s “substance person” on Lebanon? What resulted from that access?

    As to the other email chain, what was the “favor” the unknown person asked for? Why did the Clinton Foundation official insist to State Department officials that it was “mportant to take care of” that person? What “options” had State Department “personnel” been offering that person, and why? What happened after the Clinton Foundation applied pressure for favors – apparently above and beyond the “options” he had already been offered?

    George Soros's secret 2016 access to State exposes 'big money' hypocrisy of Democrats


    Liberal mega-donor George Soros made some big bets during the last U.S. presidential election. One was that Hillary Clinton would win the presidency. Another was that he could reshape Ukraine’s government to his liking, and that his business empire might find fertile ground in that former Soviet state.



    So when Donald Trump’s improbable march to the White House picked up steam in the spring of 2016, Team Soros marched to the top of the State Department to protect some of those investments, according to newly released department memos providing a rare glimpse into the Democratic donor’s extraordinary access to the Obama administration.

    Then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nulandreceived repeated calls, emails and meeting requests from Soros, according to the memos obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by the conservative group Citizens United.

    On May 25, 2016, for example, Chris Canavan of the Soros Fund Management firm provided Nuland a written briefing under the heading “Russia sovereign bond issue.” At the time, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime posed a threat to Soros’s vision for Ukraine.



    “Toria, here is my take on Russia’s foray into the bond markets this week, based on the market chatter I’ve been able to pick up,” Canavan wrote in an email, released with heavy redactions hiding most of his advice to Nuland.

    Canavan worked on the for-profit side of the Soros empire, and his cozy nickname relationship with the top State official responsible for Russia and Ukraine policy speaks volumes about the access Soros was afforded.

    REPORT: Emails Reveal Potential Widespread Pay-To-Play Corruption Within Obama State Department
    Posted on November 9, 2019 by DCWhispers


    What if the entirety of the Trump-Ukraine hoax was little more than a Deep State orchestrated distraction meant to keep eyes away from what was widespread pay-to-play corruption of the Obama State Department where taxpayer-funded foreign “aid” was, in fact, a vast money-grab scheme that repeatedly sold American interests away to the highest bidder?
    What if indeed…


    On Wednesday, U.S. Senators Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Wednesday inquiring about the manner in which the consulting firm Blue Star Strategies, hired by the infamous Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma, might have utilized Hunter Biden’s role on the Burisma board to “possibly influence State Department matters,” according to a press release from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.

    Emails also indicate that Hunter Biden and his fellow Burisma board member Devin Archer scheduled meetings with high-ranking members of the U.S. State Department at the time that Burisma was under investigation for corruption by the Ukrainian government. According to Johnson and Grassley’s letter, “In May 2015, Hunter Biden asked to meet then-Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken to ‘get [his] advice on a couple of things’ and again for lunch on July 22, 2015. On March 2, 2016, just one day after Tramontano was scheduled to meet with Under Secretary Novelli about Burisma, Devon Archer was scheduled to meet with Secretary of State John Kerry.”

    Report: Obama State Department Spied on Trump and on Prominent Conservatives

    By Sean Walton

    “Not only did Obama’s CIA and FBI illegally surveil the Trump campaign and our White House, we now find out his Ukrainian ambassador had leading conservative names spied upon too,”

    Government watchdog group Judicial Watch last week filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the State Department. The group believes prominent conservative journalists, public figures and those with ties to President Donald Trump were being monitored by the State Department in Ukraine under the direction of ousted U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, who was appointed to her post by President Barack Obama.

    ——-

    Specifically, Judicial Watch believes the following people were being monitored:

    Jack Posobiec, One America News Network Host
    Donald Trump Jr., son of President Donald Trump
    Laura Ingraham, Fox News Host
    Sean Hannity, Fox News Host
    Michael McFaul, President Obama’s Ambassador to Russia
    Dan Bongino, Fox News Contributor
    Ryan Saveedra, Reporter at the Daily Wire
    Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s Personal Attorney
    Dr. Sebastian Gorka, Former Strategist for President Trump and host of Salem’s “America First” Radio Program
    John Solomon, Executive Vice President at The Hill
    Lou Dobbs, Fox Business Host
    Pamela Geller, Political Commentator
    Sara Carter, Investigative Reporter and Fox News Contributor

    Of course Obama would block this, because he fully supports political corruption. I'd love to see Barry's tax returns to find out where all of his half a billion dollars has come from since leaving office.
    That dude is as corrupt as they come. He orchestrated everything that we are witnessing in the news each day.

    My guess is that the reason why the Durham report is taking so long is that every time Durham follows the money down another rabbit hole, he finds more Obama administration corruption that needs to be investigated. The Democrat's web if corruption is much larger than anyone could have expected.

    In fairness Flash it’s not only the Dems, so many Republicans are guilty of this as well and my train of thought is that it exposes many swamp creatures from both sides.

    Yep. Mitt Romney is flapping his gums for this very reason, he is corrupt too, through his Son. McConnell has a bunch of dirty money too. I bet most of them have enriched themselves via supporting or opposing legislation.

    Guaranteed they have Flash, McConnels wife is his problem. This is the primary reason you see such “resistance” to Trump. He promised to come in and root out the swamp.. and he is doing that, his style may not be polished and many question his methods like his tweets, but look just following much of it, another layer gets opened up for a look see.

    Obama Destroyed Libya
    by
    Ted Rall

    • Barack Obama destroyed Libya.

      What he did to Libya is as bad as what Bush did to Iraq and Afghanistan. He doesn't deserve a historical pass.

      When Obama took office in 2009, Libya was under the clutches of longtime dictator Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. But things were looking up.

      Bush and Gaddafi had cut a deal to lift Western trade sanctions in exchange for Libya acknowledging and paying restitution for its role in the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. In a rare triumph for Bush, Libya also agreed to give up its nuclear weapons research program. Libyan and Western analysts anticipated that Gaddafi's dictatorship would be forced to accept liberal reforms, perhaps even free elections and rival political parties, in order to attract Western investment.

      Libya in 2009 was prosperous. As citizens of a major oil- and natural gas-exporting nation, Libyans enjoyed high salaries, low living expenses, generous social benefits, not to mention law and order. It seems like a mirage today.

      Looking back, many Libyans miss their former tyrant. "Muammar Gaddafi inherited one of the poorest nations in Africa," notes Garikai Chengu of the Du Bois Institute for African Research at Harvard University. "However, by the time he was assassinated, Libya was unquestionably Africa's most prosperous nation. Libya had the highest GDP per capita and life expectancy in Africa and less people lived below the poverty line than in the Netherlands."

      As a dictator, Gaddafi was guilty of horrendous human rights abuses. But life was better then than now. Women enjoyed more rights in Libya than in any other Arab country, particularly after the United States overthrew Saddam Hussein in Iraq. By regional standards, Libya was a relatively sweet place to live.

    LIBYAN SLAVE TRADE: IS OBAMA TO BLAME?

    Videos of men and women being sold in Libya have led experts to question the role the Obama administration played in the North African country's instability six years after the president ordered an intervention there.

    Obama has called the aftermath of the 2011 intervention, when Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown, the "worst mistake" of his presidency—and some experts agree.

    "The responsibility is on Barack Obama's administration," Alan J. Kuperman, associate professor at the University of Texas at Austin, told Newsweek. "He made the decision to overthrow Gaddafi."

    How Obama's 'Red Lines' Made The World Much More Dangerous

    Outside Syria, the thunderous echoes of Obama’s red-line erasure are still reverberating. The Russians have taken Obama’s measure and have devoured almost one-third of Ukraine. Egypt has said it will join Russia’s Eurasian Union, tilting away from the U.S. for the first time since the 1970s. Iran, emboldened, is displaying its first intercontinental ballistic missile to carry the atomic bombs it says it isn’t building. The Chinese have stepped up their cyber attacks, declared a large chunk of the Pacific between two U.S. allies, Japan and Taiwan, to be under its control and have announced plans to build a large ocean-going navy complete with aircraft carriers. There are many other examples but the pattern is clear: America’s rivals are on the march and its friends are cowering.

    What about President Obama’s other red line?

    This past spring, he sent Secretary of State John Kerry to Africa to tell that Democratic Republic of Congo President Laurent Kabila should obey his nation’s constitution and step down when his second and final constitutional term expires in 2016.

    Since then, Kabila has attempted to do indirectly what he dare not do directly. As one of the world’s youngest leaders of a nation, he seems eager to stay in power. He cannot make a direct constitutional change without igniting a civil war or a coup. Article 220 of that nation’s constitution specifically bans constitutional amendments that change the term of the president. Public opinion matters too. As demonstrations and opposition broadcasts show, many Congolese want a new leader.

    Raymond Ibrahim: Obama Admin. Facilitated Christian Genocide in Nigeria


    In a bombshell revelation, Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria's former president (2010-2015), has accused the Obama administration of meddling with his nation's politics in order to replace him with its current president, Muhammadu Buhari — whom many blame for facilitating the persecution of Christians. In his new book, "My Transition Hours," Jonathan writes:

    "On March 23, 2015, President Obama himself took the unusual step of releasing a video message directly to Nigerians all but telling them how to vote... In that video, Obama urged Nigerians to open the 'next chapter' by their votes. Those who understood subliminal language deciphered that he was prodding the electorate to vote for the [Muslim-led] opposition to form a new government."

    A 2011 ABC News report provides context:

    The current wave of [Muslim] riots was triggered by the Independent National Election Commission's (INEC) announcement on Monday [April 18, 2011] that the incumbent President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, won in the initial round of ballot counts. That there were riots in the largely Muslim inhabited northern states where the defeat of the Muslim candidate Muhammadu Buhari was intolerable, was unsurprising. Northerners [Muslims] felt they were entitled to the presidency for the declared winner, President Jonathan, [who] assumed leadership after the Muslim president, Umaru Yar'Adua died in office last year and radical groups in the north [Boko Haram] had seen his [Jonathan's] ascent as a temporary matter to be corrected at this year's election. Now they are angry despite experts and observers concurring that this is the fairest and most independent election in recent Nigerian history.

    That the Obama administration may have imposed its will on a foreign country's politics and elections is hardly unprecedented. Recall the administration's partiality for the Muslim Brotherhood during and after 2012 presidential elections in Egypt; or its unsuccessful efforts to oust Israeli prime minister Netanyahu with U.S. taxpayers' money; or its efforts — with an admittedly unverified "dossier" (here, here and here) — to prevent then-presidential candidate Donald J. Trump from being elected, or by discussing an "insurance policy" in the event that Trump won. Moreover, texts by Peter Strzok revealed that Obama "wants to know everything we're doing."

    So in Nigeria, the Obama administration, it seems, sought to right the apparently intolerable wrong of having a duly elected Christian president in a more than 50 percent Christian nation
