It’s Good to Have a Patsy

Would any of those who said PDT was nuts for claiming that Barack Obama’s Government was spying on him care to revise their previous comments?

Former President Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice asked for the names of Trump transition officials to be unmasked and made public in raw intelligence files, according to media reports, a move apparently carried out to harm the incoming Trump administration.

One doubts that Susan Rice did this on her own initiative; but she seems like the perfect Patsy for the Obama Administration, she’s not very bright, incredibly ambitious, and willing to tell any lie that’s fed to her.

The ironic part of this is that if the Democrats had accepted Hillary’s loss with dignity and maybe some introspection, none of this would have been revealed. It’s only because they insisted on pursuing a crazy conspiracy theory (“It were Russians what hacked the election!”) that this perfidy has come to light.



  1. I’m beginning to get the impression that the Obama administration was so confident that Hillary would win, that the made no effort to curtail their activities intended to make sure no Republican was ever elected to the White House again, and the results of the election caught them flat-footed. They’ve been engaged in distraction tactics ever since hoping this never comes to light.

  2. Let’s see, the score so far:

    Dems: We demand a recount! Result: Okey-dokey, hmm, seems that in a lot a places where Hillary won she got more votes than there are people. Dems: Let’s call the whole thing off!

    Dems: Betcha we can flip some of the Electors for Hillary! Result: Trump won by even more. Dems: Grrr!

    Dems: Mike Pence is secretly bargaining with the Russians! Result: Umm, you know this how? Dems: err, the Russians told the New York Times?

    Dems: Speaking of which, our secret illegal surveillance of the Trumps and the Russians…. Result: You Are Here.

    Strap in, it’s going to be a wild ride.

  3. Oh my god you are dumber than anyone could’ve thought.

    U.S. spy agencies were spying on the Russians and they found a bunch of conservative Trump campaign workers colluding with the Russians.

    Now Trumps minions who were colluding with Russian operatives under surveillance are blaming Obama for contacting Russians operatives?

    How does that make sense?

    Admit it Russians duped conservatives. You fell for their propaganda and you elected a boob.

    Stop blaming Obama for your stupidity. Act like a real patriot and demand the removal of Russian stooges from the White House.

  4. The Democrats are spinning like some crazy merry-go-round. I would feel sorry for them if it weren’t for the fact that this perpetual hissy-fit wasn’t causing their brand irreparable damage.

  5. @ V the K: mike thinking he’s the smartest person in the room because he laps up every word that comes out of Rachel Maddow’s mouth is so amusing.

  6. #7 – That’s nothing, V. I’m old enough to remember when Dhimmicrats actually made sense when they opened their pie holes.

  7. “U.S. spy agencies were spying on the Russians and they found a bunch of conservative Trump campaign workers colluding with the Russians.”

    Colluding? Colluding to do what?

    Miley, keep hanging on to the fantasy that Russia made America elect Orange Hitler.

  8. @ V the K: The Russians aren’t precisely a threat, more of an annoyance that we really don’t need right now.

    With the Islamists pouring into Europe in droves, Russia’s use of natural gas to blackmail the West into “respecting” them more is a hindrance we simply cannot afford. So we need to either render the blackmail moot by exporting natural gas, or sit Putin down and convince him that dropping his antagonistic stance towards the West is mutually beneficial. Is the prospect of being lauded as the 11th-hour hero who swoops in to beat back the enemy enough to bring Putin on board? Maybe. Time will tell.

  9. @ V the K: If sensible, sane realpolitik is considered collusion, I guess I’m all in favor of it then.

  10. what exactly did the Russians do to effect the outcome of our election? what the hell does “hack the election” mean. did they change our voters. did they not let Hillary supporters vote, ? what was it they did, expose the truth about the deviousness of the Hillary campaign, the collusion between the complex and Hillary’s campaign? the latter probably being the biggest scandal of the campaign. mike have you done any looking into any collusion between the Hillary campaign and the communist Chinese? there is some collusion that might have some truth to it.

  11. @ salg: There is no evidence that Russians actually tampered with ballots, physical or electronic. The only thing Russia seems to have done is hack into the DNC computer base and distribute information that was rather unflattering to Hillary and her cohorts and revealed underhanded doings by the DNC. I.e., doing what some might argue the media should have been doing anyways, instead of trying to carry Hillary into the Oval Office on their backs.

  12. I think the whole “Russian collusion” hysterics was to distract from what had really gone on within the “progressives” corrupt attempt to hold on to power…either that or they were just projecting again (having done precisely what you accuse someone else of doing)…or both.

  13. I believe, activist self-initiative was & is the standard of the day for Obama sycophants then & now. Rice isn’t stupid. All the former White House Rodents were chosen for the ability to bring Obama’s radical vision to life. Obama wasn’t the micromanaging professional he was made out to be, on occasion. He just doesn’t have that capability. He’s never been a manager, supervisor, CEO. Organizing ghetto folk to pass out cheap fliers about cheap issues requires no skills. He’s always been a parrot, dribbling out cheap 1960’s flower talk black power BS from his betters, ten years older than himself. No, he chose his staff because they knew what to do & knew themselves who to choose. I.E., the IRS lady who gave her agency the imprimatur to target conservatives. So, while be a patsy, she was too close to Obama to be the perfect choice. Obama will be now guilty by association. A thug. His flimsy legacy about as strong as the 3rd rate toilet paper we buy that comes from China.

  14. The MSM (and the local liberal media) have proven this story is true by the lack of coverage. If this were a “nothing burger” there would be headlines saying so.. Sometimes what isn’t said is as important as what is said.

    Comment by TnnsNe1 — April 4, 2017 @ 1:54 pm - April 4, 2017

  15. TnnsNe1, correction, if this were a nothing burger, two things would happen:

    1) If it were a nothing burger about Democrats, they would be announcing it as a nothing burger, and trashing the news outlets that were disseminating ‘fake news’.

    2) If it were a nothing burger about Republicans or Trump, they would be touting it as smoke that needs investigating, because even if not true, it must be hiding something even worse.

  16. The elephant in the room on all of this “spying on me”, “eavesdropping”, surveillance etc is one simple fact. The Federal government, via the NSA, records each and every single conversation, email, etc that they have the technical ability to records, no matter where it originates or who is involved in the communication. They do this without any Fourth Amendment warrant. That is why the FISA – the last letter stands for “Act”, ya know? – was passed. It provides a thin layer of paint over the simple fact that no warrant to record everyone’s conversations etc issues by a regular Federal court before the recording is made, after having a judge read at least an affidavit giving legal justification for the recording. That’s why the FISA court was created by the FISA and is outside of the Federal Court system.

    And as far as Rice goes, she’s is a “consumer” of intelligence and had no business, legally or practically, unmasking the names of Americans in the intel briefing papers she gets. That is left up to the professional intelligence folks who, presumably, have no high-pressure political motive to unmask, only the investigative need to do so. And besides, Rice wasn’t in an investigative role either in intel or in the government outside of intel. All smoke, all B.S.

  17. FISA = Star Chamber.
    Some people are OK with that, others not.

    “For the plus” is that while the various-levels of Government and the Deep State-within like to think they’re all-powerful and omniscient; they’re locked in a construct that’s inefficient, inept, incompetent and corrupt.

    Comment by Ted B. (Charging Rhino) — April 4, 2017 @ 4:45 pm - April 4, 2017

  18. This article puts this all into perspective….Rice would NOT have asked for the unmasking UNLESS it were for political reasons…

  19. Conservatives and Others Unwilling To Accept The Russian Interference Scenario At Face Value:

    “Prove it. Where is the evidence?”

    Most Libs and Obama Administration Defenders:

    “It’s classified, you nincompoop. You can’t see it.”

  20. The only thing Russia seems to have done is hack into the DNC computer base and distribute information that was rather unflattering to Hillary and her cohorts and revealed underhanded doings by the DNC.

    Except that begs the question of how the information was distributed. Wikileaks contends that what is commonly referred to as the ‘Podesta e-mail dump’ wasn’t sourced to them by the Russians. They’ve hinted that it came from inside the DNC; others extrapolate that to possibly coming from a now-deceased Seth Rich. (Whose murder is yet unsolved nearing a year since its occurrence, even with an increasing reward for information.)

    Evidence increasingly doesn’t look good for the final months of the prior presidential administration, and yet their supporters continue defending the phrasing “the Russians hacked the election” without ever explaining how that was possible. (Or as some wags have inquired, “Please explain how they forced Hillary to not campaign in Wisconsin.”)

  21. Hi V the K,
    “I find it hard to be afraid of the Russians.”
    All those American folks in the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s were just delusional, I guess. I am sure that Eastern Europeans are also silly as well, for disagreeing with you, and their interests are certainly not our interests… or is that so? The Russians also have a rather large cache of active and rather nasty nuclear weapons. I never thought that I would listen in on a conversation amongst conservatives arguing that Russia is “basically harmless.”

    As for Rice, I will say what we should have been saying after the Nunes disclosures (which turned out to be quite embarrassing for the Trump White House & Republicans as more information came to light) –let us see how this plays out. I suspect that as you dig deeper and deeper into this, it is going to continue to make the Trump administration look bad. And worse than bad. But then again, you might end up vindicated, V the K. I wait, watching this cluster**k unfold … with popcorn.

  22. @ RSG or as others have said -> the Russians forced Hillary to accept the stolen primary questions and to use them for her benefit. The Russians also made Hillary look and sound like a crazy old bat when she proclaimed “why am I not 50 points ahead” and she seized up and had to be tossed like a large ham into the van by minions who did not act surprised in the least that it happened.

    The DNC figured with all the illegals/faus refugees voting, the common core dumb down, the fraud/cheating in general plus the paying for votes that Hitlery was unbeatable. Everyday I am so glad that the evil B lost!

    Comment by Sandra — April 5, 2017 @ 1:31 am - April 5, 2017

  23. Well, Cas, do enlighten us:

    the Nunes disclosures (which turned out to be quite embarrassing for the Trump White House & Republicans as more information came to light)

    Here is what I want:

    1. The actual Nunes disclosures for which you will provide citations.

    2. An explanation of how each of those disclosures (see: #1.) turned out to be “quite embarrassing for the Trump White House & Republicans.”

    3. The actual information “which came to light” which started this circular sillygism you posit.

    Comment by Heliotrope — April 5, 2017 @ 8:07 am - April 5, 2017

  24. Hi V the K,
    “Soviet Union collapsing in 1991. Kinda, y’know, changed the strategic calculus.”
    This is the same mob that has slowly started to retake territory that used to be part of the old USSR.

    Hi Heliotrope,
    “Here is what I want”
    Not even a “please.” No matter. Check out the newspapers; Googling “ny times nunes leaks” is useful. The NYTimes and Post informed us that Nunes got the intel reports that he informed the White House about, from–wait for it–White House officials… How funny and embarrassing is that!? They can’t even leak efficiently and artfully. The whole world gets to find out out about the WH attempts to change the direction of conversation. Don’t take my word for it Heliotrope. Check it out for yourself. Seriously, you will find it interesting reading if you missed it That is why I have popcorn–it is very entertaining stuff. Can’t wait for the next moves.
