Elder Patriot – MSNBC announced a curious hiring this morning. That is if you think a news organization hiring an admitted liar with a deep disdain for the intellect of the American public strange. On second though he’ll fit right in with the rest of the network’s Washington Globalist OneParty propagandists.
One would think that Ben Rhodes would be off limits to any legitimate news organization after he admitted leading the construction of a huge network of phony experts (actors) to push a false narrative while serving as Obama’s National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications in order to sell the Iran nuclear deal.
Rhodes appointment to that position was always suspicious considering he came armed with little more than a MFA in creative writing. Rhodes was there to dupe the trusting American people and not for his foreign policy or national security expertise.
“Give me the bad news and I’ll craft the message we can sell to the rubes.”
The American people were highly skeptical of Iran in the last year of President Obama’s first term when the Obama White House had begun secret talks with the Ahmadinejad regime, which would result in the world’s acquiescence to Iran’s nuclear program.
Rhode’s recounted the strategy that he employed to sell the deal to America in an extensive profile that ran in The New York Times Magazine:
“As… Secretary of State John Kerry, engaged in formal negotiations with the Iranians, to ratify details of a framework that had already been agreed upon, Rhodes’s war room did its work on Capitol Hill and with reporters. In the spring of last year, legions of arms-control experts began popping up at think tanks and on social media, and then became key sources for hundreds of often-clueless reporters. “We created an echo chamber,” he admitted, when I asked him to explain the onslaught of freshly minted experts cheerleading for the deal. “They were saying things that validated what we had given them to say.”
It was all bullshit just like the echo chamber our Manchurian president employed MIT professor Jonathan Gruber to create to sell Obamacare to the ignorant masses years earlier.
It wasn’t until years later that CNN admitted what they had known all along:
“Washington (CNN) — Years-old but newly scrutinized videos of MIT economics professor Jonathan Gruber ignited a political firestorm this week because the self-described architect of Obamacare thanks “the stupidity of the American voter” for leading to passage of the president’s signature piece of legislation.”
Now with Obama’s “scandal-free” administration about to be charged with unprecedented earth-shaking scandals the Obama-apologist media is preparing for the coming storm in the only way it knows how – to lie its way out of it.
