CNN and The Obama Administration – Weapons of Misdirection

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:

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?

What is that they say about “Apples and Trees”?

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:

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:


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.

undefinedAmber 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.

  2. Excellent post! You can almost sense the trap when Obama asks Romney to repeat his claim, knowing what is to come.

    You know what’s strange? Go back and look at the media coverage from 9 to 10 days after the attack. You see a constant refrain, like this one from CNN.

    “The White House, FOR THE FIRST TIME Thursday, declared that the attack that killed Stevens and three other people A TERRORIST ATTACK.”

    So who was wrong here? Was is Barack Obama and Candy Crowley or was it Mitt Romney and the following media outlets?


    ABC News

    NBC News

    Fox News

    Los Angeles Times

    USA Today

    Al Arabiya News

    Israel National News


  3. Also, just to establish that the President’s campaign has a history of planted questions during town hall-style events, here are two examples. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that the Obama campaign had a plant.

    The average American hasn’t a CLUE how much of our tax money Obama has sent down Muslim sh*t holes while he plans to slash the military, STOLE 716 BILLION FROM MEDICARE and threatened towithold senior’s social security checks!


    Obamas 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and passed by the full committee.
    It gives billions
    of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.

    Read the summary from David Obeys office that was quietly released last week with nary a word from any media.

    $3.6 BILLION, matching the request, to expand and improve capabilities of the Afghan security forces
    $400 MILLION, as requested, to build the counterinsurgency capabilities of the Pakistani security forces

    AFGHANISTAN:$1.52 BILLION,$86 MILLION above the request

    WEST BANK AND GAZA:$665 MILLION in bilateral economic, humanitarian, and security assistance for the West Bank and Gaza

    REFUGEE ASSISTANCE:$343 MILLION,$50 million above the request, including humanitarian assistance for Gaza. Funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency programs in the West Bank and Gaza is limited to $119 million (Note: Gaza = Hamas)

    Disaster Assistance:$200 MILLION to avert famines and provide life-saving assistance during natural disasters and for internally displaced people around the world, including Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, the Middle East and South Asia

    Peacekeeping:$837 MILLION FOR UNITED NATIONS peacekeeping operations, including an expanded mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a new mission in Chad and the Central African Republic

    Department of Justice:$17 million, matching the request, for counter-terrorism activities and to provide training and assistance for the Iraqi criminal justice system

    Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world …#
    And THAT’S just the tip of the iceberg.
    THIS will blow your mind!!
    They should have 2010 up, but they don’t. That’s where you’ll find Obama’s largesse towards Muslim countries really go off the charts.

    The most important event behind this debate and who murdered the Ambassador was not even discussed at the debates. Whatever you think happened that tripped up both Romney and Obama concerning Libya, watch the Steve Pieczenik You Tube video in the- 2012 ELECTION LINKS TO 9/11- section.and you will understand why it is inconsequential to think in terms of a debated retort to a question, but the real reasons why were in Libya under N.A.T.O and the geo-political ramifications of the Petro/Dollar/Banking equation.

    All roads lead back to 9/11 – that’s why it is not debated. This may help some of those who missed the who and why behind all of the current events, still linked to 9/11;

    As much as this kind of thing really chaps me, I think it makes Romney look all that much better. The greatest-est, bestest, most wonderfulest lightbringeriest, orator the world has ever known….. had to have someone help him ambush Romney.
