“The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings.
We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.
Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions.
Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment.
That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.” –John F. Kennedy.
John F. Kennedy Secret Societies, Conspiracy Speech
Obama and Hillary surrogates put forth a false narrative of Russian collusion, but had no evidence to support the allegation. It appears that on a second attempt, the Obama Administration got a FISA court order to monitor communications of the Trump campaign, treasure hunting for evidence to support the false narrative and apparently, there is none. Now a backfire has put the Obama gang and their media lapdogs on the defensive. —J.D. Pendry
Wouldn’t it be nice to see the lying Socialist-loving media actually on the defensive and in a meltdown? What’s funny is they’ve actually put a bit of truth out in the past, and now they’re having to eat their own words. The NYTs asked Sean Spicer if there was proof of Obama’s wiretapping, and Sean said, “No,” but the NYTs itself printed the story on January 19, 2017, News With Views reports.
Hopefully, our new AG go full bore after the former administration and their alleged illegal wiretapping!
Attorney General Sessions has not recused himself from an investigation into the latest wiretapping allegation and that just thrills me. Trump has turned the tables on the left and their phony Russian election collusion stories.
The Gateway Pundit supplied an entire list of those the Obama administration had wiretapped. However, Obama is denying he ever spied on Trump or his administration. Yet, he has his handler, communist-bred Valerie Jarrett, in his rented townhouse, only blocks from the White House, to lead the charge to topple the peoples’ choice for President. Jarrett, from within the White House may have launched a Watergate style attack on Trump during the election, and is now continuing her attack.
Levin Calls for Congressional Investigation
Even former NeverTrumper and pro-Constitutional Convention talk show host, Mark Levin, has said, “The evidence is overwhelming. This is not about President Trump’s tweet, it is about the Obama administration’s spying. The question isn’t whether it spied, we know they went to the FISA court twice. The question is, who did they spy on, and the extent of the spying. That is, the Trump campaign, the Trump transition, Trump surrogates, and the American people.”
Levin called Obama’s efforts, “police state” tactics, and suggested that Obama’s actions should be the target of a congressional investigation. He also stated that the theories about Russian interference in the presidential election were nothing more than conspiracy theories. Here’s the entire interview.
The first Obama FISA request came in June of 2016. In July, Trump made a joke about Hillary’s missing emails saying that maybe Russia can find them. This was the catalyst for the Socialist media to glom onto the fabrication that Russia hacked the election for Trump’s win.
In October, the Podesta emails kept flowing out from WikiLeaks, and new scandals were in the news daily. Of course, the Clinton campaign blamed Trump and the Russians, spewing the allegation that the Russians hacked the Democrat emails. The truth of the matter is Podesta’s emails were obtained because he fell for a phishing scam.
When Julian Assange was interviewed in London by Sean Hannity, he clearly stated that Russia was not responsible for the hacking of the DNC. He has no reason to lie. We have just seen that the CIA department has possession of Russia hacking malware that can be used to make it appear that Russia’s fingerprints were on the DNC hacks. The CIA was possibly the source of the “hacks” during the election cycle. They didn’t give information to WikiLeaks, because Assange said that the source came from within the DNC, but these hacks were essentially made for no reason other than to provide a cover story that Russian hacking helped Trump win the election.
In October, the second FISA request was made by Obama, focusing on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. Again, no evidence whatsoever is found, but they continued their spying, ostensibly for national security reasons.
These are police state tactics where the standing administration is actually monitoring an opposing presidential campaign with surveillance by the federal government. There should be media outrage, but the media is part of the problem.
In January of 2017, John McCain got into the act and turned over to the FBI the phony Buzzfeed intel “dossier” compiled by a foreign spy. All of this was false, and nothing could be verified; the info had been floating around DC for months and ignored.
In early January, Obama decided to expand the NSA sharing and to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intel agencies before applying privacy protections. Totally unheard of and dangerous, these reduced protections made it easier for intel on private citizens to be leaked or circulated.
Even worse is the NYT’s report on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies, FBI, CIA, NSA, and the Treasury Department are all monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties. Yes, multi-agencies were working on this false story to destroy the peoples’ new president and his administration.
In February, the irreplaceable, NSA Chief, General Michael Flynn, fell prey to the lies of the FBI transcripts. Obama’s Sally Yates, acting AG, is fired for insubordination. The General, the finest appointee besides Sessions in Trump’s administration, ends up resigning over allegedly misleading VP Pence, most likely inadvertently, about the content of this normal conversation with the Russian Ambassador.
My own belief is that globalist VP Pence wanted to be rid of the General. While in Germany days after Flynn’s resignation, Pence mentioned needlessly that Flynn was gone because of a “lack of trust.” Spicer had uttered the same words. I believe Pence is the core of why the General, who was a loyalist from the beginning, is gone.
Jeff Kredo is reporting that, “The CIA and Departments of Justice and Treasury are being sued by Judicial Watch for their role in leaking highly classified material as part of an effort to undermine the credibility of former Trump administration NSA Chief Michael Flynn, according to a recent announcement.”
Back to the timeline…later in February, the NYTs cited four current and former American officials in the Trump campaign who had “repeated contacts with Russian intel officials. Of course, it’s been denied by the Trump administration, and then the NYTs admitted there was no evidence of any collusion between the campaign and the Russians. Finally, the administration is raising questions about illegal intel leaks.
In March, the Bezos owned Washington Post reported that AG Sessions had contact twice with the Russian ambassador during the campaign, once at the Heritage Foundation, and once at a meeting in Sessions’ Senate office.
My previous article exposed just how many times the top Democratic Socialists have also met with the Russian ambassador as well as President Putin.
The Back Story
NSA Admiral Mike Rogers visited Trump Tower just 10 days after the election, and right after another Mike Rogers – the former House intelligence Chairman who retired after lying about the Benghazi fiasco – was kicked off the Trump transition team on intelligence. No one could figure out why he was kicked out. However, if you’ve read the Benghazi Brief you know how damaged, corrupted and untrustworthy Chairman Mike Rogers was – and he previously sat on the oversight gang of eight.
It appears that NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers didn’t want to participate in the spying scheme (Clapper, Brennan, etc.), of President Obama’s post presidency efforts to undermine Donald Trump. It could be that NSA Rogers didn’t want to visit Trump Tower until Chairman Rogers was gone.
Andrew McCarthy Sums It Up
Former prosecutor, Andrew McCarthy summarized the story in William F. Buckley’s NeverTrump National Review.
McCarthy tells that Obama and his minions wanted criminal investigations of Trump’s top people, yet there was nothing criminal to find. Surprise, Surprise! So what they did next was convert the investigation into an intel probe under FISA (The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act). Parts of this story have been confirmed by the BBC, NYTs, and the McClatchy papers.
Normally a FISA surveillance is allowed by the court whenever the feds ask to spy on certain people, but not this time. The court refused permission to spy on Trump’s people according to the BBC. McCarthy commented that this is notable because, “the FISA court is notoriously solicitous of government requests to conduct national security surveillance.”
Not liking the refusals, the Obama administration came back during the final weeks of the campaign with a third request that didn’t specifically mention Trump. Then the request was granted by the court, BUT…reports from the Guardian and BBC don’t mention tapping of phones.
Of course, there have been denials by the Obama administration, which McCarthy calls “disingenuous on several levels.” Others have characterized them as a “non-denial denial.”
Newt Gingrich made the observation, “To think this happened to be done by some bureaucrats with no supervision, when you know, for example, that Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, spent an hour in secret with Bill Clinton just before they dropped charges against his wife. I mean all of this stuff smells to high heaven despite the best efforts of the elite media to cover it up.” He said, “These Obama wiretaps of our President are very serious, and very dangerous to our liberties.”
The very first FISA request on Trump Tower came after Bill Clinton, and Obama’s AG Loretta Lynch, had their private meeting on the plane. [Link]
Gingrich made it clear that Schumer is trying to derail this presidency by keeping Obama appointees in power. Schumer knows that Jeff Sessions is a man of integrity and character above reproach, but he attacks the finest in Trump’s administration.
FBI Director Comey
According to the NYTs, “The FBI director reportedly made the verbal request, to the Justice Department to publicly reject President Trump’s assertion that Obama ordered the tapping of Trump’s phones, senior American officials said on Sunday. They said Mr. Comey argued that the highly-charged claim is false and must be corrected, but the department has not released any such statement.”
Director Comey allegedly said, and it’s only supported by anonymous sources, for the DOJ to refute the President’s allegations, because, “it falsely insinuates that the FBI broke the law.”
So, it’s okay with the FBI to falsely insinuate that the President broke the law, but nobody had better make that same claim about them. Fake news? Maybe. We’re still wondering why Comey was retained.
Obama’s Community Organizers
Donald Trump’s latest tweets sent arrows into the MSM and Obama’s Organizing for America (OFA).
Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says OFA is an army of agitators 30,000 strong who will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency, and the ex-president “will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House.” Sperry writes that the ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the incoming administration through a network of leftist nonprofits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (currently more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. OFA’s IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate OFA has 32,525 volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their foundation office near the White House.
Obama has moved some of his top players into the OFA. He has even moved his co-president and handler, Valerie Jarrett, into his rented home.
Here’s the meat of this whole filthy deep-state spying sedition…the story is not the Trump campaign. The story is not the Russians hacked the election. The story is not the Trump campaign was working with the Russians. The story is the effort by Barack Hussein Obama — and the Democrat Party, and the New York Times, and Washington Post, and Politico — to sabotage and destroy the Trump presidency, and Monica Crowley knows this all too personally.
Crowley was set to be the senior director of communications at the National Security Council before a hit job by CNN destroyed her. She was recently interviewed by Sean Hannity (see the vidio below) and said the following:
Look, what happened to me was a despicable straight up political hit job. There is a very toxic and increasingly poisonous atmosphere of personal destruction in DC and the media. It’s always been there, but now it’s on a whole different level.
The attack on me was a test. What happened to me, what happened to General Flynn, what is happening to AG Sessions and others, is all of a piece. There is a very dangerous and very effective destabilization campaign under way against this President, his administration, and his agenda. What I hope the President and his senior aides understand is that these forces are not just looking to delegitimize him, they want to personally destroy him, destroy his presidency, and they would like to see the man in prison.
They are out for blood, and the reason they must destroy him is because Donald Trump is an alien organism that has been injected into the body politic by the American people to reform it. He must not be allowed to succeed. They want him and his people rejected from the system, just like any alien organism. He must not be allowed to succeed, and I hope everyone around him understands that this is a war, and they will not end until they destroy the President of the United States.
