Fake News Says This Is America’s Biggest Threat

MSNBC Contributor and former Deputy National Security Adviser to President Obama Ben Rhodes is claiming that “The biggest danger to the national security of the United States is the president of the United States, who is single-handedly, before our eyes, blowing up the international architecture that the United States has relied upon for our own security for 70 years.”

Rhodes stated, “I mean, Chris, what’s very clear is that he has a continued hostility towards our democratic allies, and he’s continually reaching out, praising, trying to get next to, trying to create these spectacles with people like Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un. I don’t think it’s possible to overstate what is happening this week. The biggest danger to the national security of the United States is the president of the United States, who is single-handedly, before our eyes, blowing up the international architecture that the United States has relied upon for our own security for 70 years. This 2% defense spending thing is just a lever that he’s using to clobber NATO. Let’s be very clear, if you shred the credibility of America’s commitment to our allies, it doesn’t matter how much people spend on defense. The fact of the matter is, by antagonizing our allies, he’s making it less likely that they’re going to stand with us the next time we need them, as they did in Afghanistan after 9/11. He’s playing right into the hands of Putin, who’s been trying to create a wedge between the United States and Europe since he came back into office. And he’s raising serious questions about whether the United States of America wants to play the role that we’ve played for 70 years as the leader of alliances like NATO.”

      Fruit of the poisonous tree. Didn’t Ted Turner start CNN in the ’80’s?

  • Ben Rhodes the biggest threat to the U.S. was the Obama administration. Obama who weaponized many agencies and the ones that are the most powerful FBI and DOJ look like fools and those are the appointees not the good people that work everyday to help this nation.

    • cane247

      Obama was just a blister. It’s Progressivism that’s the herpes. And like Herpes, it never goes away does it?

  • Free America

    Biggest threat to Ben Rhodes and his minnions are the American people who got your number.

    • cane247

      If I had his number, I would leave him a most humorous message indeed. LMAO

  • Aj

    The greatest threat was when Sockmonkey, the teabagger muslim president went around the world apologizing for America, weakened our military, allowed foreign interference in our elections and lay down red lines our adversaries mocked in Syria and Crimea. Thank God he and his little fairie prince Ben Rhodes are out of any position of authority.

        or typed it even. LOL

  • Maggietish

    The biggest threat to America is people like Ben Rhodes, the Obama administration, Democratic politicians, liberal/progressives and of course the biased corrupt lying fake news media like CNN.

    The biggest threat to NATO is we do not want to pay for everyone anymore. The US owes more money then we take in. Got to trim the fat and NATO is one of them. We do not need to pay for the worlds defense. Then when the NATO countries need us,we are expected to foot the bill there also.. NO MORE PIGGY BANK USA They pay their fair share or dump them all/.

    • Rodney

      Exactly as we should with the UN. The UN is actually worse. We dump huge amounts of money into an organization that doesn’t have a military or capable of standing off and incursion. The UN is now run by the worlds despots.

      • cane247

        it’s just a big kiddie-porn outfit. SICK

        • Rodney

          You’ll get no argument from me.

  • Spunky

    What happened to the biggest threat – climate change? that was bogus then as your speal is now – ya all democrat press are stupid

  • Rodney

    When WE need them? Who was it that needed help in WWI and WWII? Who has done the most damage to our sovereignty and international integrity over the last 8 years, Benni? Who was it that squandered billions of dollars on a nonsensical stimulus program? Who is most responsible for creating an atmosphere of divisiveness and strife, Benni? Under which administration did we see the rich get much richer while the middle class fell into poverty and the poor got poorer? Who was it that created an economic situation where by businesses were forced to move to other countries taking millions of jobs with them, huh Benni? What IS best for OUR National Security, businesses and jobs leaving our country, regulations choking every business, man, woman and child, or as much freedom as we can get. A vibrant business sector, booming job market, people moving back into the labor force, a push for all nations to abide by their agreements to the NATO alliance is what is best for National Security.

    Another koolaide drinker that consumed to much and now is scared that all the corruption of his messiah is finally coming to the knowledge of the American people, also another who feels they are in control when the real control belongs to the lord.

    • cane247

      Time for them to do the honorable thing and fall on their swords, but they are all cowards however brazen. Hanging is too dignified for them.

    No the biggest threat to America is CNN & their Anti-American views. Maybe it is time for the USA to stop being the ATM of the world in money, supplies & military personal. Maybe we should tell CNN to help change 70 years of servitude to the world. Maybe instead of the Left Wing Socialist channel CNN caring for the world we should take care of our citizens children so none go to bed hungry, or without safe shelter & proper clothing. Maybe we should not be the biggest military loser in troops & equipment for the United Nations & NATO. This type of Yellow Journalism seems to forget that pre WW2 many scholars predicted that once we got & stayed to long in Europe & Asia we would be stuck for eternity being the police & the piggy bank for the world. Well maybe Mr. Rhodes & his Fat Cat Obama Socialists would like to pay for all these plains instead of the Middle-Class. Because “We The People Pissed”!

  • George

    There is no cure for being “STUPID” & an IDIOT AT THE Same time!

  • This guy is a “dimwit.” And the whole slant is globalist. Trump is doing exactly what needs to be done with our allies. They need to “pony up.”Putin and Russians define both presidents as “Ceela musheena.”(Strong man). Barack Obama was seen as a “glyoopyetz.”(Fool).

  • gvette

    That boy spent way to much time on the snotty end of Obungholes fuck stick!

  • Reality Check

    If our allies refuse to pay their dues to the alliance that protects their security then they will naturally see our commitment waning. They should expect little from us if they contribute so little.

  • Estell Newton

    We should NOT be relying on anybody except ourselves. other countries always turn on us when they get what they want from us. Trump is trying to straighten out the mess the democrats got us into.

  • NCnative

    In truth, since the Left has let it be known that no matter how much good Trump is doing for America, they are going to continue with the naysayer agenda of always criticizing everything Trump has done. In truth, there is little reason why America should be footing sixty percent of the NATO expenses, especially when the European nation that America is paying outrageous amounts to protect, fail to pay even the pitiful amount they are already required to pay, often failing to even pay anything. In truth, the rest of the world automatically requires tariffs on every single America product they permit to be entered into their nation, while demanding that America has no right to impose even the slightest tariffs against their products. When is the rest of the ignorant Left going to openly admit that they refuse to allow America to prosper, demanding that it should be ever deeper in debt with no chance in hell of even attempting to pay off their debt, so that the rest of the world can refuse to pay their debt to America. How many billions of dollars does the world owe America, yet continue to refuse to even pay the interest off of their debt?

      But we are to reward these countries for putting US Businesses out of business. Remember when US Steel was the major supplier of steel in the world. But then it was allowed to import cheaper steel and not as good as the steel made in the US. Perhaps we are to reward these countries like China for stealing our technology and flooding the market with counterfeit products. Perhaps we should pay China more for sending things like car parts in to the US made with radioactive material or kids toys painted with lead based paint. Can not leave out things like tainted honey or honey that is cut with chemicals. Look at the San Francisco bay bridge project section that had gaps of several inches so bad that they had to be braised. Those sections were bought from China but we are to smile sweetly while taking it up the rear!

    Lest we forget … CBS News president David Rhodes’ brother Ben, was Obama’s Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communication and was a key player in revising the White House’s Benghazi talking points last September:

    In an email dated 9/14/12 at 9:34 p.m. — three days after the attack and two days before Ambassador Rice appeared on the Sunday shows – Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes wrote an email saying the State Department’s concerns needed to be addressed.

    “We must make sure that the talking points reflect all agency equities, including those of the State Department, and we don’t want to undermine the FBI investigation. We thus will work through the talking points tomorrow morning at the Deputies Committee meeting.”

    After that meeting, which took place Saturday morning at the White House, the CIA drafted the final version of the talking points – deleting all references to al Qaeda and to the security warnings in Benghazi prior to the attack.

    Obama was a muslim trafficker–smuggling thousands upon thousands of muslims into the country and REFUSING to notify local, city or state officials including Governors of their locations—WHY was he hiding them? There is NO “Democrat” party anymore, take it from this LIFETIME Democrat voter, REGISTERED for more than 40+ YEARS–it has DEGENERATED into the National SOCIALIST DemocRAT Bolshevik party of islam and George Soros!! Their loyalty is to muslims and ILLEGALS! They are ANTI–God, ANTI-religion, ANTI-family, ANTI-Constitution, ANTI-white, ANTI-FREEDOM, ANTI-Founding Fathers and ANTI-AMERICA!

    Benji seems to forget, conveniently, that his Master – Obozo the Incompetent, shredded the credibility of the United States with his Grand Apology Tour, bowing to the Saudi King, genuflecting to the Ayatollahs, and generally stating that the Best Days of the USA were OVER!

  • cane247

    Ben Rhodes could not be more of a treasonous rodent, my apologies to rodents.

  • Tuxedo_Plowboy

    Lots of people seem to be loyal to the United Nations and Globalists instead of the United States. Sad. One could say they are treasonous in a way. Drain the Swamp.


    fake news!!

    Wasn’t this guy a security advisor to Obama when he was promising Putin additional cooperation if he would wait until he was reelected?
