  • Obama’s spying scandal is starting to look a lot like Watergate

    “F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims,” read the headline on a lengthy New York Times story May 18. “The Justice Department used a suspected informant to probe whether Trump campaign aides were making improper contacts with Russia in 2016,” read a story in the May 21 edition of The Wall Street Journal. So much for those who dismissed charges of Obama administration infiltration of Donald Trump’s campaign as paranoid fantasy. Defenders of the Obama intelligence and law enforcement apparat have had to fall back on the argument that this infiltration was...

    Journalism got a lot smaller last week. The media lost two of their biggest names – author and journalist Tom Wolfe and Interview Magazine. Wolfe, who wrote “The Right Stuff,” spent decades making people appear larger than life. Interview, founded by pop culture icon Andy Warhol, used its larger-than-normal format to make its subjects grow in stature. The industry is diminished, left with its war against President Trump as journalists battle over whether an informant sent to spy on the Trump campaign is actually a “spy.” That is part of their larger anti-Trump crusade, but it’s also tied to how...

    In a democracy elected officials control the police.. In a police state, the police can tell elected officials what to do. In a democracy elected officials can fire police leaders. In a police state police leaders cannot be fired by the officials the people have elected to supposedly run the government. 'In a police state Gestapo like police may terrorize political figures by invading their homes in the middle of the night like Robert Mueller did to .Paul J. Manafort. In a police state KGB like police may plant spies in political organizations like the Department of Justice did to...

    In his newly released book, Sen. John McCain admits he knew the anti-Trump dossier that he infamously passed to the FBI contained “unproven accusations,” “mostly raw, unverified intelligence” and allegations about which the senator “had no idea” if “any were true.” Yet McCain maintains he had an “obligation” to pass the wild charges against Donald Trump to FBI Director James Comey and he would even do it again. “Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain exclaimed. In the book The Restless Wave, McCain provides an inside account of how he says he came across the dossier. He...

    Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Sen Marco Rubio (R-FL) defended the FBI’s action during the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump by saying they were investigating individuals with suspicious histories connected to Russia. Rubio said, “As far as what I have seen to date, it appears that there was an investigation not of the campaign but of certain individuals who have a history that we should be suspicious of that predate the presidential campaign of 2015, 2016.” He continued, “When individuals like that are in the orbit of a major political campaign in America, the FBI, who is in charge...

    The Guillotine is a gruesome instrument of Justice. It was named after Dr. Joseph-Ignace Guillotin who recommended that the French government adopt a gentler, more humane method of execution. It was used for capital punishment for more than 150 years. The last execution via the swift blade took place in 1977 just before the French outlawed capital punishment. Early on it was an especially favored instrument in meeting out Justice for traitorous political plots. Today, the term “heads will roll” originates from its use. It may take a few more months to clear away all of the remaining roadblocks and...

    An internal FBI spy program reportedly used to surveil the Trump campaign has a long history of being used to protect killers and jail innocents. Following reports that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) used at least one spy to secretly surveil members of the Trump campaign, fired former FBI director James Comey lashed out at critics of his agency’s activities during the 2016 election. “Facts matter. The FBI’s use of Confidential Human Sources (the actual term) is tightly regulated and essential to protecting the country,” Comey tweeted on May 23. “Attacks on the FBI and lying about its work...

    NBC, a mainstream media ally of the government intelligence conspiracy to undermine the Trump campaign and administration, has labeled the president’s characterization of this covert operation as “spying” as FALSE. In an interview on The View, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper explained that “we weren’t spying on Trump. We were spying on the Russians.” “Look it’s not as if the Obama Administration’s practice of using covert methods to gather useful intelligence from a political campaign was unprecedented,” Clapper said. “LBJ used federal agents to secretly intercept communications inside the Goldwater campaign. And, of course, Nixon had his henchmen...

    Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam movement, appears to have changed his opinion of Donald Trump since two years ago, when he warned black Americans: “If Donald Trump becomes president, he will take America into the abyss of hell.” Appearing on Chicago radio station WGCI, on a program titled “The Morning Takeover,” he stated that it may not have been the intent of this administration to help, but that Trump is destroying the enemies of the Nation of Islam. Included in this group are the Department of Justice and the FBI. So far, there has been barely a...

    The FBI began investigating the Clinton email scandal in the spring of 2015, when The New York Times revealed Clinton's use of a private email address for her official governmental work and the fact that she did not preserve the emails on State Department servers, contrary to federal law. After an initial collection of evidence and a round of interviews, agents and senior managers gathered in the summer of 2015 to discuss how to proceed. It was obvious to all that a prima-facie case could be made for espionage, theft of government property and obstruction of justice charges. The consensus...

    3.43min video at link. Hans Von Spakovsky (Screenshot) Former Justice Department (DOJ) official Hans Von Spakovsky says it’s illegal and unconstitutional for the DOJ and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to refuse to provide President Donald Trump and Congress with details of their Trump-Russia investigation’s use of a spy in Trump’s presidential campaign. As the nation’s top law enforcement officer, Trump – and anyone working for him - have the indisputable right to anything they want to know about the Russia-Collusion investigation, Spakovsky explained in a Fox News interview Friday morning: “The president is the chief law enforcement officer of...

    We are hearing a lot these days about how documents reluctantly provided to congress by the Department of Justice and the FBI have been heavily redacted, rendering them almost indecipherable. The operative word here is “almost.” There have been enough unredacted words or phrases in the documents submitted to congressional authorities to suspect one of the biggest cover-ups in American history. The FBI is inadvertently leaving small breadcrumbs exposed for congressmen to seek further information and question why this or that redaction was made, if it appears there is no reason why the redaction should be classified given the context...

    You don't need to believe that the special counsel investigating President Donald Trump is a terrible person to conclude that the Obama administration and Clinton machine (and later their holdovers during the Trump administration) politicized and weaponized federal agencies to protect Hillary Clinton and damage Trump. So if you just can't shake your instinct that Robert Mueller is the epitome of virtue and professionalism, hold fast to it, but consider the litany of facts that prove serious and abundant malfeasance on the part of the Obama-Clinton "deep state" actors. The Department of Justice, especially the FBI, bent over backward to...

    Is it unthinkable that the Federal Bureau of Investigation would spy on a presidential campaign for political purposes? I can personally attest that it has happened before—during Barry Goldwater’s 1964 campaign. Every poll agreed that President Lyndon B. Johnson would easily win the election against the conservative Sen. Goldwater of Arizona. But LBJ wanted a landslide so he could implement his Great Society vision without resistance and go down in history as one of America’s greatest presidents. For Johnson, extremism in the pursuit of victory was no vice. Thus was born Johnson’s “Anti-Campaign” to smear Goldwater’s candidacy. The operation was...

    The “great” (sarcasm intended) Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has personally penned a message to Trump supporters who are furious over his hatred for Donald Trump - in which he passed along a fraudulent Fusion GPS Dossier to the FBI - and that message is: “Go to hell.” It's amazing that Senator McCain can claim he's ill and unable to appear for his taxpayer-financed career in Congress, but simultaneously send out tweets daily, and also write and publish a book which attacks both President Trump and the American people. McCain confesses in the new book that the information from Fusion GPS,...

Internet sleuth, former D.C. Bureau Chief for Investors Business Daily, author and Hoover Institution Media Fellow, Paul Sperry, tweeted a list of 6 or 7 individuals that worked for or were suspected of working for the FBI/CIA and who were involved in spying on President Trump.
