What This Former Obama Official Running for Congress Wrote About the U.S. Response to 9/11 Should Disqualify Her From the Race

Published

Lauren Baer, a former Obama administration official running for Congress in Florida recently wrote up an article calling the United States’ response to 9/11 a “moment of hypocrisy.”

This is the kind of person the left just absolutely adores, because you just can’t be a Democrat without hating your own country.

Lauren Baer, who worked for the State Department under both Hillary Clinton and John Kerry, also criticized the country’s “shameful history” while hoping the attack, which killed nearly 3,000 people, would make America more “humble and humane.”

Baer, a Democrat, is now running for Congress in Florida’s 18th District against incumbent U.S. Rep. Brian Mast, a Republican. The district is along the state’s Atlantic coast, north of Miami.

But Baer has not received an endorsement from former President Barack Obama, who has opted against endorsing any Democratic candidates in Florida this year.

Baer’s writings came during her years at Harvard University, when she worked for the Harvard Crimson, a student-run publication. Her column titled “From Hypocrisy to Humanity” appeared Oct. 10, 2001 – just a month after the attacks.

“Some people speak of wanting an America to emerge from these events that is stronger and more proud,” Baer wrote. “I wish to see an America emerge that is humbler and more humane.”

She then wrote that America had a “shameful history” when it comes to standing up for its values.

“At the same time that America calls on the world to ardently preserve our sacred values, it must live up to a shameful history of having so rarely stood up for those values itself,” the now-Democratic candidate wrote.

“By the rhetoric of an attack on American values anywhere being an attack on security everywhere, they should have warranted a meaningful U.S. response,” Baer wrote. “But the U.S. response to these atrocities was meager, if it existed at all.”

This kind of thing should disqualify someone from running for office, but unfortunately, it doesn’t. On the flip side, perhaps her comments will stir up folks enough to vote against her and send a message to her that they don’t want freedom haters to represent them in Congress.

The way we responded to 9/11 was the right thing to do. Justice needed to be served and these terrorist groups needed a firm boot up the backside, which is precisely what we gave them.

Perhaps one day Baer will learn what it means to truly love your country.

Huckabee Goes NUCLEAR After April Ryan Calls for Sarah Sanders’ Head to Be Lopped Off

That escalated QUICKLY!

CNN’s April Ryan has been a Democrat Party activist since Donald Trump became president. Her outbursts during White House Press Conferences have become a thing of legend – right up there with fellow CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s. Now, tensions have escalated in a big way after Ryan called for Sarah Sanders’ head to be “lopped off.” This is considered journalism to many members of the media in 2019. Sarah’s dad, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, took umbrage with April’s words. Then, it became a Twitter war… Appearing Thursday on CNN’s Outfront, Ryan, who also serves as a political analyst for the network, claimed Sanders had no “credibility left” after special counsel Robert Mueller’s report was released. Ryan noted, “She outright lied, and the people, the American people, can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house.” She added, “When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s ‘Fire Me Thursday’ or ‘Fire Me Good Friday.’ She needs to go.” Enter Huckabee: So liberals—is this okay?Does CNN have the integrity to deal w/ this incitement to murder?

PIGS ARE FLYING! CNN Savagely Tears Obama Apart After Revelations of Mueller Report

Even a broken clock…

John Salvatore

Donald Trump was exonerated once and for all when Attorney General Bill Barr made it clear there was zero collusion with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign. Barack Obama, on the other hand, won’t come out completely unscathed. And this is coming from CNN – a vehement defender of 44 and his legacy. Check this out… From CNN: The partisan warfare over the Mueller report will rage, but one thing cannot be denied: Former President Barack Obama looks just plain bad. On his watch, the Russians meddled in our democracy while his administration did nothing about it. The Mueller report flatly states that Russia began interfering in American democracy in 2014. Over the next couple of years, the effort blossomed into a robust attempt to interfere in our 2016 presidential election. The Obama administration knew this was going on and yet did nothing. In 2016, Obama’s National Security Adviser Susan Rice told her staff to “stand down” and “knock it off” as they drew up plans to “strike back” against the Russians, according to an account from Michael Isikoff and David Corn in their book “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump”. Why did Obama go soft on Russia? My opinion is that it was because he was singularly focused on the nuclear deal with Iran. Obama wanted Putin in the deal, and to stand up to him on election interference would have, in Obama’s estimation, upset that negotiation. This turned out to be a disastrous policy decision. While speaking with White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, CNN’s Jake Tapper literally said his network made no errors when it came to reporting on alleged Russia collusion. That’s like Stacey Abrams saying she is the rightfully elected governor of Georgia. It’s…
