Obama Hid Hundreds of Thousands of Bin Laden Raid Docs, Lied to U.S. About Al-Qaeda

Former President Barack Obama was a lot of things to a lot of people.

Former President Barack Obama was a lot of things to a lot of people.

To some, a godsend. To others, a disgrace.

What cannot go overlooked, however, is that Obama lied to the American people about the strength of radical Islam while burying 470,000 documents related to the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound.

In order to win re-election in 2012.

From Western Journal:

In a detailed exposé in The Weekly Standard, journalist and author Stephen F. Hayes showed that Obama buried a staggering number of documents from Osama bin Laden’s compound, and essentially lied to the American people about the real status of Al Qaeda in order to win votes.

[…]

A key piece of Obama’s re-election was the elimination of bin Laden and the claim that the administration had Al Qaeda on the run. Afghanistan was won, the incumbent president boasted, and Islamic terrorism was waning. The path forward was to lift sanctions on Iran and move forward.

There was one big problem: The administration knew it wasn’t true, but repeated it anyway.

“The self-proclaimed ‘most transparent administration in history’ had spent more than five years [by 2016] misleading the American people about the threat from al Qaeda and its offshoots and had paid very little price for having done so,” Hayes explained.

Continued:

When the CIA and Navy SEALs raided bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan, they brought back cases upon cases of documents, along with hard drives that contained gigabytes of important intelligence.

[…]

“In the spring of 2012, with the Republican presidential primaries nearing an end and shortly before the first anniversary of the successful raid on bin Laden’s compound, Obama’s National Security Council hand-picked 17 documents to be provided to the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point for analysis,” The Weekly Standard revealed.

That’s 17 out of a cache of around 470,000 documents, or less than 0.003 percent of the full picture.

Obama was recently caught in another lie, claiming he never attacked the press – an obvious swipe at President Donald Trump for constantly referring to the media as “fake news.”

From The Blaze:

Former President Barack Obama is being applauded by many on the left for leaving the political sidelines and jumping into the fray for the midterms, but others are criticizing his lack of historical honesty for comments he made about freedom of the press.

[…]

“Did substantially increase leak prosecutions, however,” Maggie Haberman of the New York Times objected.

“Leak prosecutions were a big deal under Obama. It wasn’t a frontal attack, but it was a stealth one,” she added in a response to someone defending Obama.

CNN’s Kaitlan Collins responded with a quote from the New York Times summing up Obama’s actions against the freedom of the press.

“Under Obama, the DOJ and FBI spied on reporters by monitoring phone records, labeled one journalist an unindicted co-conspirator for simply doing reporting and issued subpoenas to others to try to force them to reveal their sources and testify,” the excerpt read.

Other critics were less moderate, like former governor Mike Huckabee, who retorted, “You wiretapped the AP and reporter @JamesRosenTV and even his parents! The IRS persecuted multiple conservative groups as did DOJ. You may not remember, but we do.”

Who could forget the numerous times Obama went after Fox News?

HERE WE GO: First Republican Rep. Comes Out & Calls For Trump’s Impeachment (Details)

The MSM is about to have a field day…

Well, this isn’t good. The first sitting Republican Congressman has pretty much declared that President Trump needs to be impeached. The media is sure to run with this story like they’re being chased. Check it out… From Politico: Michigan Rep. Justin Amash became the first Republican lawmaker to declare that President Donald Trump committed impeachable offenses and that Attorney General William Barr “deliberately misrepresented” special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. Amash, whose libertarian views often put him at odds with Trump and his fellow Republicans, posted a series of tweets Saturday afternoon outlining positions that even some Democrats have been unwilling to embrace — an extraordinary development that comes as Democratic leaders face increasing pressure from progressives to launch impeachment proceedings. His tweets: Here are my principal conclusions: 1. Attorney General Barr has deliberately misrepresented Mueller’s report. 2. President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct. 3. Partisanship has eroded our system of checks and balances. 4. Few members of Congress have read the report. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831615952236546 I offer these conclusions only after having read Mueller’s redacted report carefully and completely, having read or watched pertinent statements and testimony, and having discussed this matter with my staff, who thoroughly reviewed materials and provided me with further analysis. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831618712100864 In comparing Barr’s principal conclusions, congressional testimony, and other statements to Mueller’s report, it is clear that Barr intended to mislead the public about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s analysis and findings. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831619869728771 Barr’s misrepresentations are significant but often subtle, frequently taking the form of sleight-of-hand qualifications or logical fallacies, which he hopes people will not notice. https://twitter.com/justinamash/status/1129831620838662145 Under our Constitution, the president “shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.” While “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” is not defined, the context implies conduct that violates…

CONFIRMED: Reporters From Big Name Liberal Outlets Found to Have Working Ties With Antifa

Oh, is that RIGHT!?

John Salvatore

Published

Antifa is back in the news. Not good. If members of the mainstream media were honest with the American people – or themselves – they’d report this story. But they aren’t. And they won’t. From Red State: After mapping the social interactions of 58,254 Antifa accounts on the social network Twitter, Dr. Eoin Lenihan found that many journalists from major publications such as The Guardian, Vox, and more had a direct working relationship with the Antifa members. Lenihan posted his findings to Twitter where he put up a chart showing Antifa area accounts with their related members. We mapped the social interactions of 58,254 Antifa affiliated accounts on Twitter based on an initial seed of 16 self-identifying and verifiable Antifa accounts (and Mark Bray who chose not to confirm if he is a member of Antifa but whose book makes a solid case for inclusion). https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128731412180426752?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128731412180426752&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F He then shortened that dataset to only 1.65 percent of the total, leaving them with the accounts that are the most connected to the various official Antifa accounts with a minimum of eight connections or more. According to Lenihan, some had far more than just eight. As the data came out, Lenihan found more than a few journalists with a multitude of connections to Antifa. https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128734136640966656?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128734136640966656&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128746750586564614?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128746750586564614&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128761714445570049?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128761714445570049&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F https://twitter.com/EoinLenihan/status/1128740972702183425?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1128740972702183425&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbrandon_morse%2F2019%2F05%2F17%2Fjournos-prominent-news-publications-found-working-relationships-antifa%2F “Antifa” has to single-handedly be the most ironic group in America today. The “anti-fascists” do nothing but promote fascism by refusing to let the other side speak. Former Vice President Joe Biden officially kicked off his 2020 presidential campaign by praising the uninformed group.
