    CNN and The Obama Administration – Weapons of Misdirection

    CNN and The Obama Administration – Weapons of Misdirection

    Posted on October 17, 2012 by sundancecracker
    In the history books of wool-over-sheeple-eye-removal this might, just might, go down as one of the most obvious and over-the-top Machiavellian media manuevers ever.

    Watching it unfold on live TV it did not seem right. It was awkwardly and comfortably scripted, and too smooth in execution. But watching it on replay the agenda filled manipulation was obvious. It appears Candy Crowley and CNN together with the Obama Administration scripted the Libyan injection into the Presidential Debate.

    I’m not just talking about Candy Crowley interjecting on behalf of President Obama, and interrupting Mitt Romney, I mean the whole segment seemed like it was a set up.

    So we did a little research:

    Candy Crowley told Erin Burnett on CNN’s show Out Front, Monday Night 10/15, that she had collected the questions from the invited and vetted debate audience at Hofstra University and was reviewing them. This was Monday on the 7pm broadcast of Erin Burnett. The Debate was Tuesday.

    When the question on Libya was asked by audience member Kerry Ladka, he prefaced the question by saying:
    ….this question actually comes from my, err, um, a brain trust of my friends at Global Telecom Supply in Mineola, yesterday we were sitting around talking about Libya…
    If Candy Crowley already had the audience questions assembled the day before, how could Kerry Ladka and his brain trust friends have been writing one?

    Secondly, look at the origin and subject switch from Candy Crowley. When she said “we are changing topics to a question from Kerry… from Kerry Ladka“, Obama already knew what to look for and where he was seated. There are numerous “TELLS” Watch the video – it is at 1:06:35 Watch.

    President Obama moved (physically walked) directly toward Kerry Ladka, and said “Hi Kerry“,… (but oddly Kerry had not moved, nor identified himself) …. then, rut roh,…. after an internal psyche trigger kicked in, President Obama does the ((‘oops’)) *looks around* as if to say where am I going… then asks “what’s your name“?

    Thirdly, within the carefully worded question itself is a very nuanced descriptive delivered by Ladka:
    …”and we were reading, and we became aware of reports that the State Department refused extra security for our embassy in Benghazi Libya prior to the attacks that killed four Americans.
    Who was it that denied enhanced security, and why?
    The term “enhanced security” is the term used by the White House spokespeople and by the State Department spokesperson(s). It is just plain awkward and oddly not in a normal context for a general question from an unattached observer. Not to mention it perfectly “Tee’s Up” the only construct, and context, that Obama could defend and expand upon.

    Fourth. Michelle Obama appears to know the moment is at hand and fails to contain her excitment upon execution. There is a FOX News camera angle that actually shows her response during a cutaway portion. No-one realized she was on tape…. And you’re not going to believe what she was doing…. just watch:

    The Clap - YouTube

    Yes, that’s right. The LOUD clapping you can hear in the audience is from none other than Michelle Obama herself who is responding to the put down of Governor Romney’s question by Candy Crowley. She knew all along the risk to Obama that Libya presents, and she appears giddy upon execution of the misdirection.

    Fifth Point - Kerry Ladka works for Global Telecom Supply. More specifically he works for Isaac Elyassoff who is the current Vice-President at Global Telecom Supply. Guess where Elyassoff is an alumnus of ? Yep, Hofstra University, the site of the debate. It appears Elyassoff is in his mid twenties having graduated from Hofstra with a degree in Marketing and Business 2002-2006. Obamabot? Ideology? Check out his twittery friends .

    Why would random undecided voter, Mr. Kerry Ladka, of Long Island NY, be calling media outlets, media pundits, and requesting to be on their shows?

    Just a randomly selected “undecided voter”/”audience member” chosen by CNN?

    Seriously? Give me a break….. Consider:

    Does the prior name David Plouffe or the prior campaign strategy of David Plouffe ring a bell?… anyone?…. anyone?….. Any.One?

    Now regarding the entire aspect of Crowley Bias:

    As noted by commentator “garyws” Look at the video from 1:13:50 to 1:15:20. This is obvious evidence of collusion between Obama and the moderator, Candy Crowley. When Romney makes the point that Obama had just said in the debate that he had called this an “act of terror’ in the Rose Garden the day after the attack, Obama smugly encourages Romney: “Please proceed, Governor”.

    Then when Romney says, “I want to make sure that we’ve got that on the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror” , Obama then prompts the moderator (Candy Crowley), “Get the transcript”, and right after Crowley stuttered, “He did in fact”, Obama says confidently “Can you say that a little louder Candy?” And each time that Obama commented, there was a spattering of applause from Obama supporters in the audience.

    Look at the Crowley interruption segment closely:

    AWFUL. CNN Moderator Jumps In to Defend Obama at Presidential Debate - YouTube

    It was obvious to the intellectually honest viewer that an agenda, what appears to be a “scripted agenda”, was being followed. Here is another angle. Focus on the exchange between President Obama and the simultaneous verbage of Candy Crowley:
    Obama, Romney get heated over Libya - YouTube


    Brian Lilley: The MSM is lying about the muslim riots - YouTube

    Now, before people begin spouting off accusations about a wild conspiracy theory. Let me remind you of what we have already recently shown, in fact, about CNN specifically and intentionally removing reports from U.S. CNN audiences in order to help the White House.

    First CNN reports a total falsehood: that a “senior official” said a full marine detachment could not have repelled the Benghazi Attack.

    Second. Watch the first 3 minutes of this video about CNN and the Cairo protest:

    Why would CNN refuse to air the Nick Robertson report with Muhammed Al Zawahiri (brother of Ayman Al Zawahiri) that clearly shows the Egyptian uprising was 100% in response to his call for protests for release of the Blind sheik on 9-11.?

    This Nick Robertson report was filmed the morning of the Cairo Embassy protest itself. It was filmed on 9/11 outside the U.S. Embassy.

    Why would the “most trusted name in news“, hide the report showing the obvious truth, and instead allow the false narrative to be sold, by them, to the American electorate?

    Lastly, don’t take my word for it. Read and listen to a former CNN journalist Amber Lyon.

    Amber Lyon is an award-winning journalist who worked for CNN.

    She says she was ordered to report fake stories, delete unfriendly stories adverse to the Obama administration (like the Nick Robertson report), and construct stories in specific manners while working for the left-wing network.

    She used to work for CNN and she supports what we are outlining regarding the intentional manipulation of the Presidential Debate by CNN.

    We previously outlined her story, and the hiding of the Nick Robertson report here.
    Given the history of documented, cited and irrefutable manipulation by CNN, is it a stretch to say that given all the citations above, Mr. Ladka was a specifically planted seed waiting to be used at a specifically planned juncture; with the full knowledge of the Obama campaign, and facilitated by a willing media outlet?

    Obama: “get the transcript”…..

    Obama: “can you say that a little louder Crowley”……

    Was Crowley correct? Did President Obama actually call it an act of terror? Here’s the relevant portion of the transcript (emphasis added):

    Of course, yesterday was already a painful day for our nation as we marked the solemn memory of the 9/11 attacks. We mourned with the families who were lost on that day. I visited the graves of troops who made the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan at the hallowed grounds of Arlington Cemetery, and had the opportunity to say thank you and visit some of our wounded warriors at Walter Reed. And then last night, we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.

    As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.

    No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.

    Today we mourn for more Americans who represent the very best of the United States of America. We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.

    But we also know that the lives these Americans led stand in stark contrast to those of their attackers. These four Americans stood up for freedom and human dignity. They should give every American great pride in the country that they served, and the hope that our flag represents to people around the globe who also yearn to live in freedom and with dignity.

    We grieve with their families, but let us carry on their memory and let us continue their work in seeking a stronger America and a better world for all of our children.

    Thank you. May God bless the memory of those we lost, and may God bless the United States of America. (link)
    As you can see, Obama said, “No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this nation.”

    However, he didn’t specifically call this incident an act of terror, and his administration went on for days if not weeks claiming it was a protest over an anti-Muslim movie trailer. Obama was certainly not calling the Benghazi attack an act of “terrorism“, if he wanted to tell the American people it was terrorists then he would not have sent his cabinet level UN ambassador, Susan Rice, into the media four days later to say it was a protest about a video that turned violent.

    What else would we expect? No real surprises here. The important thing is that Obama did not distinguish himself, he did not gain any ground as far as I can see, and he and Crowley got caught with their lies about the attack on our Libyan embassy. CNN may believe Crowley did a great job (well, as a an Obama sell-out instead of as an objective journalist, maybe so), but I do not think anyone who is not already an Obamanite bought any of it. Look at the current polls. I do not believe them, but only because they still rank Obama too high.

    No doubt it was a set up when Crowley was chosen as moderator I believed something like this would take place especially when she was allowed to decide which questions would be ask also oddly she had transcripts on hand of the presidents speech how convenient.
    I'm old with many opinions few solutions.
