The taint of corruption adhered to the outgoing regime like super glue to the very end. Don't know how this could get any more obvious before someone finally takes action. Then again, what was the ultimate price paid for the IRS scandal?

Have you ever seen the MSM work SO hard to cover up one of the biggest stories of the year if not THE biggest? I mean this is just as big if not bigger than Nixon’s Watergate. Could you imagine, G. Gordon Liddy and the Nixon’s Watergate being covered up? For ABC and the rest of the MSM to cover up Susan Rice’s “unmasking” of Trump administrators and Obama spying on Trump to help Hillary get elected…WOW! That’s a BIG League!
It’s been over 40 years since G. Gordon Liddy walked into John Dean’s office and was asked to participate in an operation against the Democratic Party in the ’72 election. But there’s a funny feeling in the air, like it happened just yesterday, only THIS time the MSM is NOT writing the BIG story.
Maybe it has something to do with connections. Maybe it has something to do with Susan Rice’s husband, Ian Cameron and others like him who are pro-Obama and support the “cover up” or silence on the topic. It’s like the crime never happened, but it DID.

The mainstream media is working overtime to cover up this week’s ground-breaking scandal involving former national security advisor Susan Rice, and what do you know, her husband was an executive producer at ABC News.
Can you say “conflict of interest”?!
According to The Gateway Pundit, Senior Fox News Correspondent Adam Housley revealed on Friday that Intel Chair Devin Nunes (R-CA) knew who unmasked the identities of President Donald Trump’s close associates. Sources also told him that the unmasking was purely for political purposes to embarrass Trump and had NOTHING to do with national security.
Then, over the weekend, it was confirmed that Rice was the culprit who had ordered the unmasking of incoming Trump officials.
In a nutshell, the Obama administration was using spying techniques put in place to protect Americans from terrorists, in their shameless attempt to take down Trump.
So where has the media been on this scandal, which is inarguably the biggest of its kind to ever hit national headlines?
From The Conservative Post:
The coverage in the Main Stream Media (MSM) was apathetic but the coverage at one major MSM outlet was nonexistent. ABC News this morning had no mention of the story on its home page.
Perhaps ABC isn’t covering the story because Susan Rice’s husband, Ian Cameron, is an ABC News Executive Producer?
Is nepotism keeping ABC from reporting on Rice’s illegal actions?
Who IS Ian Cameron, Susan Rice’s husband, you ask?
Ian Cameron has held many prominent positions in ABC News over a 13-year time span.
His LinkedIn page says he was a “Former Executive Producer” for ABC News, from 2008-2011, based in Washington, D.C.
In 2010, TVNewser reported that “Cameron, the executive producer of ABC’s ‘This Week with Christiane Amanpour,’ is leaving the program at the end of the year.” The news site reported then that Cameron “was named executive producer of ‘This Week’ in 2008, and before that served as senior Washington producer for ‘ABC World News with Charles Gibson.’ He had been with ABC News since 1998.”
Prior to his position with ABC, Cameron was a television producer in Toronto for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation at the time, reported the Times. He also worked at television stations in Eureka, California and Ottawa, Canada, in the 1980s.
According to The New York Times, Cameron graduated from Stanford, and “received a Master’s in International Relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science.”
The Times reported in the wedding announcement that Cameron’s father was the retired owner of “the Victoria Plywood Company, a lumber company in Victoria.”
According to a Stanford University bio on Rice, “Rice and Cameron met during her freshman orientation at Stanford. He was a senior” and quotes Cameron as saying, “She struck me right away as someone unique. She was more aware and very confident.”
So Ian Cameron and Susan Rice met at Stanford and both came from wealthy backgrounds. They have been married since 1983 and have two children. Cameron worked for ABC and has strong ties to the Obama administration.
Some have seized on Rice’s husband’s media background in their attempt to discredit the media; Trump supporters argue that the major networks, other than Fox, have downplayed the Rice unmasking questions.
However, on April 4th, Rice adamantly denied any wrongdoing; she said unmasking was requested to better understand the context behind reports and not for political purposes; she also denied ever leaking the information, according to The New York Times.
So, let me get this straight. Here’s one of the BIGGEST news stories of the year and ABC chooses NOT to cover it. Like silent crickets. There is nothing.
Even former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann believes the apparent surveilling of Donald Trump and his associates by the Obama administration is “a thousand times worse than Watergate”.
Yet, ABC chose NOT to cover it? Seriously?!
The story is not EVEN MENTIONED on any of it’s pages….anywhere!
Twelve days before, Rice said she didn’t know a thing about it (unmasking). She said she “knew nothing” of Trump data unmasking and “nothing of the sort occurred”. As it happens, SHE requested the unmasking numerous times.
Talk about MSM bias! It’s like you need a chart in front of you to keep track of who’s connected to who. Like this one:
Just at ABC, other than the Ian Cameron and Susan Rice connection, there’s also:
ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.
ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s Deputy Press Secretary.
ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama’s Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood.
ABC News George Stephanopoulos was the chief Washington correspondent for the ABC News and William J. Clinton’s senior adviser.
ABC News Kati Marton was married to Peter Jennings, and Richard C. Holbrooke. Holbrooke was a special envoy to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Assistant Secretary at the U.S. Department of State for the Barack Obama administration.
So you see, it’s really no surprise to many of the MSM bias and their alliance to the Obama administration. The list of connections from the MSM to the Obama administration is pretty long. Due to the MSM connections, It’s not alarming then, that ABC would NOT report about Susan Rice and the “unmasking”, especially knowing that Ian Cameron is Susan Rice’s husband, and of course, all of the other MSM connections listed above.
Remember in 2014, CBS News’ investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson resigned in scandal when she grew frustrated with their network’s liberal bias and lack of dedication ot investigative reporting. She released a book titled ‘Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.’
It looks like not much has changed over the last couple years regarding that same MSM bias. It’s just gotten more obvious and blatant.
Most of us don’t even get our news anymore from the MSM – like CBS, ABC or NBC. We look for the ‘real’ news on sites like Joe For America, Drudge Report, Breitbart, Rush Limbaugh, WikiLeaks or blogs. In fact, it was a blogger, Mike Cernovich who first reported the news on Susan Rice.
And the MSM still wonders why their ratings are down? Seriously?!
It’s very clear, the MSM only wants the public to know THEIR side of things. The MSM is very bias especially when it comes to reporting about Obama or his administration. When it comes to the ‘real news’, most days, you really do have to ask yourself, ‘what country do we live in…Russia or America’? That’s how bias the MSM is.
As Sen. Rand Paul said, If it (unmasking) wasn’t for political reasons and Rice was really seeking the information for foreign intelligence reasons, then why wasn’t the FBI involved? And did Obama direct Susan Rice to unmask the names of the Trump administrators?
Americans deserve the REAL news and the REAL truth! Let’s hope AG Jeff Sessions, Sen. Rand Paul and others, along with a formal grand jury can get to the bottom of all of this. Susan Rice should be facing some time. The real question is ‘How much time?”
The Susan Rice story is one of the biggest stories of the year and for the MSM to just ignore it, as it never happened is just INSANE! It’s like we returned in time to witness Nixon’s Watergate all over again. Only THIS time instead of G. Gordon Liddy….we have Susan Rice.
“I saw Democrats as being dangerous to the country,” he said. “I see the Democrats now as being even more dangerous to the country. I wanted to prevent them from being able to damage the country further. So I chose to make use of the special knowledge that I had as a result of the FBI and so forth. That was it.” – G. Gordon Liddy

Seems some of the Dems can't adapt to a real man in charge. They miss the old days when their fearless leader, or as Col Ralph Peters would say, "the pussy" was in charge. Barry is the reason Putin is calling the shots in Syria.
There is really only one solution here. Bashar al-Assad and his entire family have to die. Yes, I said his entire family. If this does not occur all we'll do is perpetuate the situation.
That little bastard you see here is responsible for 400,000 dead and the reason Europe is flooded with Muslims.
The image of seven dead children who were gassed in Syria. Frozen in time, eyes open, with not a mark on them.
Democrats on Thursday responded to reports that President Trump authorized a cruise missile strike on an airbase in Syria, and the reaction appeared to be mixed.
"I support the administration's strike on the air base that launched the chemical attack. I hope this teaches President Assad not to use chemical weapons again," Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., said.
Trump’s quick action was in response to the chemical attack that left as many as 72 civilians dead, including woman and children.
Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., and former vice presidential candidate, issued a statement: “Congress will work with the President, but his failure to seek Congressional approval is unlawful.”
The statements came as the U.S. launched 59 Tomahawk missiles targeted at an airbase at Shayrat. The attack was targeted at the airstrips, hangars, control tower and ammunition areas in the base, officials said.
"Any further action will require close scrutiny by Congress," Sen. Dick Durbin, D- Ill., said.
Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Md., also commented on the importance of Congressional approval, saying, "Any longer-term or larger military operation in Syria by the Trump Administration will need to be done in consultation with the Congress."
“This week’s unspeakable chemical weapons attack is only the latest in a long series of horrors perpetrated by Bashar al-Assad on innocent men, women, and children,” Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement issued on the attacks in Syria. “Tonight’s strike in Syria appears to be a proportional response to the the regime’s use of chemical weapons. If the President intends to escalate the U.S. military’s involvement in Syria, he must come to Congress for an Authorization for Use of Military Force which is tailored to meet the threat and prevent another open-ended war in the Middle East.”
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a statement that, "making sure Assad knows that when he commits such despicable atrocities he will pay a price is the right thing to do."
"It is incumbent on the Trump administration to come up with a strategy and consult with Congress before implementing it. I salute the professionalism and skill of our Armed Forces who took action today," Schumer added.
While most came out in support of the strike, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-HI, released a statement on Thursday condemning the attack.
“It angers and saddens me that President Trump has taken the advice of war hawks and escalated our illegal regime change war to overthrow the Syrian government,” Gabbard said, adding that, “this escalation is short-sighted and will lead to more dead civilians, more refugees, the strengthening of al-Qaeda and other terrorists, and a direct confrontation between the United States and Russia—which could lead to nuclear war.”
Gabbard said the Trump administration had “acted recklessly without care or consideration of the dire consequences of the United States attack on Syria without waiting for the collection of evidence from the scene of the chemical poisoning.”
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., member of the Senate Committee on Armed Services, condemned the Syrian chemical attacks, saying their “actions underscore why the United States should embrace innocent people who are fleeing in terror.”
“The Constitution gives the power to authorize the use of military force to the legislative branch. Expanded military intervention in Syria requires action by Congress,” Warren said in a statement on the U.S. strikes on Syria. “If President Trump expects such an authorization, he owes the American people an explanation of his strategy to bring an end to the violence in Syria. We should not escalate this conflict without clear goals and a plan to achieve them.”
