What if for a moment we take Susan Rice at her word when she claims she had a legitimate reason to use the entire United States intelligence community to inform the Obama Executive Branch on the Trump campaign? That legitimacy only comes if it is hand in hand with legality. So under what standard of legality did Rice legitimize unmasking and dissemination of U.S. persons’ identity.
In the minds of the Obama inner circle, it met every standard of legality to listen in on Trump campaign conversations and unmask Michael Flynn and whoever else turned up. Why? Remember these two things about Obama?:
– He’s the President who famously declared that he “believed” his own “b*llsh*t.” That’s not Breitbart. That’s not Milo. That’s not the vast right wing conspiracy talking. Those words came straight out of Barack Obama’s mouth.
– He’s the “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for” President.
So, when “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for” traveled the campaign trail with a particularly vulgar form of “b*llsh*t” – that being the idea that Donald Trump represented an unparalleled existential threat – was it any wonder people like Susan Rice felt empowered to act in the name of “national security” to respond to a Presidential campaign they viewed as more dangerous than ISIS?
That’s not hyperbole, that’s fact. In the lead up to election day 2016 and every day since then, we’ve seen more hysterical furor emerge from left-leaning sources over Donald Trump than we have over any other topic.
Why won’t Rice come out and explain herself then?
While the left’s useful idiots might be ready to Jim Jones their entire movement to its natural outcome (the outcome of all leftist movements is rampant death and destruction), Susan Rice is smart enough to know that if she goes on the “the shows” and explains herself she’ll come across sounding as bat-sh*t crazy as every left-wing activist protesting this, that, and whatever in the streets today.
