Video || Why are the Media Saying There’s No Evidence of Spying on Trump?

This video below addresses one of the great mysteries of the week.

We keep hearing in the media that there was no evidence that the Trump campaign was spied on. And whatever was, DON’T CALL IT SPYING.

Of course there’s evidence, laid out by the liberal media itself, about surveillance of indviduals associated with the Trump campaign by the FBI. An informant, who has been identified by name, tried to get information. That’s . . . spying.

If this had been done to the Obama 2008 campaign by the Bush administration, there would be demands in the media for a criminal investigation of George W. Bush. And for the execution of Dick Cheney, pre-trial if possible.

Meantime, Obama strikes deals to make millions of dolllars with Netflix and claims his administration was scandal-free. And nobody cares.

FBI May Have Had a Spy Within the Trump Campaign

From a piece running in the Wall Street Journal today by Kimberly Strassel:

The Department of Justice lost its latest battle with Congress Thursday when it allowed House Intelligence Committee members to view classified documents about a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. Even without official confirmation of that source’s name, the news so far holds some stunning implications.

Among them is that the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation outright hid critical information from a congressional investigation . . . House investigators nonetheless sniffed out a name, and Mr. Nunes in recent weeks issued a letter and a subpoena demanding more details.

Thanks to the Washington Post’s unnamed law-enforcement leakers, we know Mr. Nunes’s request deals with a “top secret intelligence source” of the FBI and CIA, who is a U.S. citizen and who was involved in the Russia collusion probe. When government agencies refer to sources, they mean people who appear to be average citizens but use their profession or contacts to spy for the agency. Ergo, we might take this to mean that the FBI secretly had a person on the payroll who used his or her non-FBI credentials to interact in some capacity with the Trump campaign.

This would amount to spying, and it is hugely disconcerting. It would also be a major escalation from the electronic surveillance we already knew about, which was bad enough. Obama political appointees rampantly “unmasked” Trump campaign officials to monitor their conversations, while the FBI played dirty with its surveillance warrant against Carter Page, failing to tell the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that its supporting information came from the Hillary Clinton campaign. Now we find it may have also been rolling out human intelligence, John Le Carré style, to infiltrate the Trump campaign.

The name will eventually come out. It looks like members of the Intelligence Committee now know it. And it could be one of the biggest scandals of the Obama administration – that it in fact had a spy within the Trump campaign, delivering who-knows-what kinds of information. Did any of it get back to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Given the extraordiary politicization of Obama’s Justice Department, we of course can’t assume it didn’t.

All supposedly justified by an investigation into “collusion” that no one still has provided any evidence of.

Obama Disgruntled About Trump Decision to Scrap the Iran Deal

Here’s a short part of a very long Facebook lecture by Barack Obama on President Trump’s decision to exit the Iran nuclear deal:

There are few issues more important to the security of the United States than the potential spread of nuclear weapons, or the potential for even more destructive war in the Middle East. That’s why the United States negotiated the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in the first place.

The reality is clear. The JCPOA is working – that is a view shared by our European allies, independent experts, and the current U.S. Secretary of Defense. The JCPOA is in America’s interest – it has significantly rolled back Iran’s nuclear program. And the JCPOA is a model for what diplomacy can accomplish – its inspections and verification regime is precisely what the United States should be working to put in place with North Korea. Indeed, at a time when we are all rooting for diplomacy with North Korea to succeed, walking away from the JCPOA risks losing a deal that accomplishes – with Iran – the very outcome that we are pursuing with the North Koreans.

That is why today’s announcement is so misguided. Walking away from the JCPOA turns our back on America’s closest allies, and an agreement that our country’s leading diplomats, scientists, and intelligence professionals negotiated. In a democracy, there will always be changes in policies and priorities from one Administration to the next. But the consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to risks eroding America’s credibility, and puts us at odds with the world’s major powers.

Debates in our country should be informed by facts, especially debates that have proven to be divisive. So it’s important to review several facts about the JCPOA.

And then he goes on and on some more with “facts.”

Actually, this is not what we are trying to do in North Korea. In North Korea, we are trying to completely denuclearize the country, not leave it with a program that it can begin developing again in a few years right up to the point where it can produce mass numbers of weapons.

Obama should stop whining. He went and signed a bad, unpopular treaty and then violated the Constitution by not submitting it for approval by the Senate. Instead, he turned the Constitution on its head by making the Senate have to vote to disapprove it, which it couldn’t.

Without Senate confirmation of the agreement, it can be simply overturned by his successor. Too bad, Obama.

Clinton-Appointed San Francisco Judge Holds Up Trump DACA Order

Trump announced in September that he was rescinding the “dreamers” amnesty effective in March… Continue Reading
