Ever since Edward Snowden received asylum from Russia in 2013, Obama officials have repeatedly maligned his motives and patriotism by citing his “choice” to take up residence there. It has long been clear that this narrative was a lie: Snowden, after meeting with journalists in Hong Kong, intended only to transit through Moscow and then Havana on his way to seek asylum in Latin America. He was purposely prevented from leaving Russia — trapped in the Moscow airport — by the very Obama officials who then cynically weaponized his presence there to imply he was a civil-liberties hypocrite for “choosing” to live in such a repressive country or, even worse, a Kremlin agent or Russian spy.
But now we have absolute, definitive proof that Snowden never intended to stay in Russia but was deliberately prevented from leaving by the same Obama officials who exploited the predicament which they created. The proof was supplied unintentionally in the memoir of one of Obama’s senior national security advisers, Ben Rhodes, entitled The World as It Is: A Memoir of the Obama White House. It is hard to overstate how dispositively Rhodes’ own book proves that Obama officials generally, and Rhodes specifically, lied blatantly and cavalierly to the public about what happened: a level of sustained and conscious lying that can be explained only by sociopathy.
Declassified documents seized from Bin Laden’s Pakistan compound as he was killed in May 2011 reveal his plans to throw the U.S. ‘into a crisis’ by killing Obama while he traveled in a plane with U.S. military commander David Petraeus.
The 45-page document, which were first reported by The Washington Post in 2012, is now available in full along with hundreds of others from the raid.
Osama wrote to Al Qaeda deputy Atiyah Abd al-Rahman: ‘The reason for concentrating on them is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make [Vice President] Biden take over the presidency, Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the U.S. into a crisis.
‘As for Petraeus, he is the man of the hour … and killing him would alter the war’s path’ in Afghanistan.’
Osama’s ambition was to have Ilyas Kasmiri, described by U.S. officials as Al Qaeda’s military operations chief in Pakistan, shoot down the plane carrying Obama.
The aspirations never developed into further planning, the U.S. intelligence service told The Washington Post.
Despite COVID-19 cases soaring in recent weeks, due much in part to the highly contagious delta variant that has the U.S. averaging over 100,000 new cases per day, former President Barack Obama went forward with his celebrity-laden birthday party in Massachusetts on Saturday. A few photos and videos were leaked out to the public from the swanky soirée, which show a maskless Obama dancing with his guests, who also did not wear face coverings.
Obama’s birthday bash was held in massive tents on his spacious estate in Martha’s Vineyard in Dukes County, which was designated as a “high transmission” area for COVID-19 by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. High transmission communities fall under the CDC’s updated guidance recommending that masks be worn indoors, even by people who are fully vaccinated.
Singer Erykah Badu was performing at the former president’s 60th birthday party, but managed to record a video of maskless Obama dancing with a woman and other attendees who were not wearing face coverings. Badu uploaded the video to Instagram, but then quickly deleted it. But she didn’t manage to delete it quick enough and the footage was shared online.
Despite claims that the event would be ‘scaled back’, Barack Obama’s massive party has continued for three days straight, prompting more accusations of hypocrisy and ‘one rule for thee and another for me’ from everyday Americans who are not allowed to hold gatherings with their own friends and families.
As noted at the weekend, Obama was seen partying with hundreds of people, the vast majority ignoring any kind of restrictions as the Secret Service set up a no-fly zone over his mansion.
Photos and videos leaked from the event, despite a ban on them.
The Daily Mail reports that the party at Martha’s Vineyard with hundreds of guests and scores of servants continued throughout the weekend, and wasn’t just restricted to one night.
