Muh Russia: Barack Obama Spent Three Times As Much Interfering in Israeli Election Than Russians Spent on Facebook Ads
The 13 indicted Russian internet trolls have NOTHING on Barack Obama.
On Friday the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller announced that a federal grand jury indicted 13 Russian nationals, along with 3 Russian entities for ID fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and bank fraud from 2014 through the 2016 elections.
The Russians launched pro-Trump and Pro-Hillary websites and organized pro-Trump and anti-Trump rallies.
The anti-Trump rallies were much more successful.
It’s a lot easier to get leftist sheep out to protest than conservatives who work all day.
But these Russians have nothing on Barack Obama.
The Russians spent a reported $100,000 on Facebook ads during the election.
Barack Obama spent $350,000 to interfere with the Israeli elections to unseat pro-US Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Obama spent more than three times as much to interfere in the Israeli elections than the Russians spent on Facebook ads.
Barack Obama also interfered in the Kenyan, Egyptian, German and British elections.
CNS News reported:
According to the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (PSI), the State Department gave $349,276 in U.S. taxpayer-funded grants to a political group in Israel to build a campaign operation, which subsequently was used to try to influence Israelis to vote against conservative Benjamin Netanyahu in the March 2015 election for prime minister.
In the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations report about the State Department’s action, Chairman Bob Portman (R-Ohio) said, “It is completely unacceptable that U.S. taxpayer dollars were used to build a political campaign infrastructure that was deployed — immediately after the grant ended — against the leader [Netanyahu] of our closest ally in the Middle East. American resources should be used to help our allies in the region, not undermine them.”
“The State Department ignored warning signs and funded a politically active group in a politically sensitive environment with inadequate safeguards,” said Portman in a July 12, 2016 press release.
