Everyone seems to be so concerned that Russian individuals tried to influence the US 2016 elections. The investigation being led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is all about the Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Democrats insisted that Donald Trump or members of his campaign colluded with the Russians.
In the early days when the news broke that some Russians tried to influence our election, the liberals and some conservatives went wild. They said this should never be allowed to happen. It was learned that the Obama administration knew about the Russian interference by the beginning of summer in 2016 but they did and said nothing about it until AFTER Trump defeated Hillary. It appears that if Hillary would have won, none of us would have ever heard about Russia’s attempt to influence our election process.
The Russian use of Facebook for political posts and ads also sent liberals through the roof. How dare any foreign government or foreign people try to influence America’s election. The very idea seemed to be an unforgiveable afront and something they would never do. If you believe that, I have a bridge somewhere to sell you.
The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) has just reported that they have obtained new documents via an ongoing Freedom of Information Act case they have been working involving the State Department. They report:
“We have previously discussed our ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) case against the Department of State involving our request for public records regarding grants of U.S. funds to the organizations OneVoice Israel and OneVoice Palestine. While the United States regularly issues grants to international organizations that provide services such as humanitarian relief, educational opportunities, and even opportunities and activities aimed at encouraging democratic voter participation, it turns out the OneVoice organizations went well beyond such measures and actively campaigned against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the 2015 elections—using resources established and developed with grant funds from the Obama State Department.”
“One of the important discoveries we made, through documents we received in response to our FOIA lawsuit, is that one of the senior advisers to OneVoice Palestine was none other than the son of Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority – something the Obama Administration clearly knew (since these documents were in its possession).”
“In short, U.S. taxpayer funds were distributed by the Obama State Department to two sister organizations with clear political goals of undermining—indeed, unseating—the sitting prime minister of a U.S. ally.”
It shouldn’t be that surprising since everyone knew that Obama worked hard to alienate Israel while he courted the Muslim nations in the Middle East that considers the US as an enemy to be destroyed. Don’t forget that Obama’s half-brother Malik Obama was often seen at official events wearing Palestinian scarfs that depicted a region devoid of Israel.
Is this any different than what Democrats have been accusing Russia of trying to do here in the US?
In fact, it’s worse than what Russians were trying to do with our election. First of all, the Obama State Department used YOUR and MY tax dollars to fund the organizations working to influence the Israeli elections and oust Benjamin Netanyahu. Secondly, the Palestinian Authority is defined by many as a terrorist organization who has been responsible for many attacks on Israel, resulting in the injury and deaths of hundreds of Israeli people.
Based upon the words of so many Democrats who accuse anyone involved with the Russian influencing of America’s election as criminal and worthy of being prosecuted, every member of the Obama administration and State Department involved with these grants should be arrested, charged, tried and convicted of their crimes.
