Could THIS be why Dems were so intent on pushing that ‘Red Scare’ story?
Obama famously said there wasn’t ‘even a smidgen of corruption in the IRS scandal’. (In exactly the same way Nixon said he was ‘not a crook’.)
With THAT track record of integrity as a backdrop for Obama’s fair dealings with his political rivals, should THIS story really surprise us?
ON camera, Obama made great gestures of welcoming the new guy into office. Remember hearing about how helpful Dubya was in that transition process of ’08? And do you remember how Obama promised to do the same thing for Trump?
“Now, everybody is sad when their side loses an election. But the day after, we have to remember that we’re actually all on one team. This is an intramural scrimmage. We’re not Democrats first. We’re not Republicans first. We are Americans first,” he said. “We’re patriots first. We all want what’s best for this country. That’s what I heard in Mr. Trump’s remarks last night. That’s what I heard when I spoke to him directly. And I was heartened by that,” Obama said.
“That’s what the country needs — a sense of unity; a sense of inclusion; a respect for our institutions, our way of life, rule of law; and a respect for each other. I hope that he maintains that spirit throughout this transition, and I certainly hope that’s how his presidency has a chance to begin,” he added. — Full article Here
Fine words. But as we’ve learned with Obama, his WORDS and his ACTIONS often have little to do with each other.
Reports are beginning to surface that Obama’s administration specifically targeted Trump for government surveillance.
Some have been putting the pieces together, and the picture that is emerging isn’t pretty.
Mark Levin’s show covered the Sessions story in depth explaining how Obama and his holdovers appear to be orchestrating a ‘Silent Coup’ to undercut Trump.
Weird, isn’t it? Didn’t Hillary go out of her way to denounce as ‘UnAmerican’ anything short of absolutely accepting the will of the people? Maybe that’s part of the ‘Fundamental Transformation’ of America BHO was telling us about.
What has Obama’s administration been up to?
Well, he wasn’t so ‘gauche‘ as to create a group called ‘the plumbers’ to bust in and bug any Watergate Hotels.
But why would he? He has high-tech options instead!
Here are a few of the highlights.
Drawing on sources including the New York Times and the Washington Post, Levin described the case against Obama so far, based on what is already publicly known. The following is an expanded version of that case, including events that Levin did not mention specifically but are important to the overall timeline.
1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.
…4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.
…6. January: Obama expands NSA sharing. As Michael Walsh later notes, and as the New York Times reports, the outgoing Obama administration “expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.” The new powers, and reduced protections, could make it easier for intelligence on private citizens to be circulated improperly or leaked.
…7. January: Times report. The New York Times reports, on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies — the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Treasury Department are monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties. Other news outlets also report the exisentence of “a multiagency working group to coordinate investigations across the government,” though it is unclear how they found out, since the investigations would have been secret and involved classified information.
With THAT context in mind, consider that the Jeff Sessions FIRST meeting with the Russian Ambassador was at an event in JULY that he did not initiate.
Which is to say, this meeting was AFTER Obama’s initial FISA request.
This Russia Plot could well be the biggest Fake News story since Orson Welles’s’ War of the Worlds’. And it is doing PRECISELY the damage it was designed to do.
It is undermining or destroying the careers and reputations of HONEST men, to further the objectives and aims of corrupt ones.
Has anyone seen the New York Times and their famous exposure of corrupt Presidential Administrations? We could use some of that here.
But, seeing as they gleefully FLAUNTED the law to publish Trump’s taxes, (and faced no consequences fo doing so) we’re not expecting much from them.
Their allegiance is STRICTLY to Party interests. Not National ones. (Or the Truth.)
So much for that VAUNTED ‘freedom of the press’. We’ll have to look to the NEW Media for answers in THIS story.
Or maybe they’re just too scared to report anything that would diminish the First Black President for fear of the ‘racist’ tag.
Truly it WAS time to ‘drain that swamp’.
The sooner, the better.
