Press says spy on Trump, not on us

The press wasted the weekend trying to cook up another Fake Scandal as it made a big deal about the FBI subpoenaing news outlets and Apple to track down those who leaked classified documents.

BFD. Obama had the FBI spy on Donald John Trump. Obama's move was worthy of Stalin. The American press never protested, and indeed promoted Obama's cover story that President Trump somehow colluded with Putin to win election.

The FBI lied to obtain secret FISA warrants to spy.

We know Obama knew this because his favorite political hack, Susan Rice, read thousands of transcripts from that shady spying. On CNN in April 2017, Rice called her political treachery "unmasking."

FISA was set up to prevent spying on political opponents. Obama figured a way around the safeguards.

The holier-than-thou clowns at WaPo, NYT, CNN, MSNBC, and AP never said a word in anger about Obama's SS-style use of the FBI.

But now they are angry at President Trump because FBI investigated Democrats and reporters. There is no evidence whatsoever that he knew about this. 

They are not alone in this hypocrisy.

The big claim is the White House "pressured" the Department of Justice, as if it were an autonomous organization. It is not. The president through his attorney general is in charge. Powerful bureaucrats, though, promote this idea to a gullible press.

That is how you wind up with a J. Edgar Hoover. Only after his death was the depth of his corruption made public.

His successors have been just as powerful. While the FBI is trying to pin the blame on The Donald, I suspect the bureau began this investigation on its own.

The Washington Free Beacon reported, "Peter Strzok, the top FBI investigator on the inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election, sent text messages to colleagues in March 2017 speculating that Democrats from the House Intelligence Committee and on the so-called Gang of Eight were behind media leaks.

"The messages could shed new light on a New York Times report that prosecutors subpoenaed Apple for metadata from the phones of Reps. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) and Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.) as part of the leak hunt. Schiff is chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and Swalwell has served on the panel since 2015. Prosecutors sought the lawmakers’ records in order to ascertain the sources for stories published in 2017 and 2018 regarding possible links between Trump associates and Russians. Prosecutors empaneled a grand jury as part of the probe, which was quietly closed without charges."

Perhaps the purpose of the FBI investigation was to cover the bureau's tracks. The subpoenas were secret, just like FISA warrants. 

At any rate, it is crazy to believe the FBI would help President Trump in any way, shape, or form.

But the political press in DC is not crazy. Reporters willingly lie, knowing their lies will be believed long after being proved wrong.

CNN allowed Pelosi to disparage President Trump without mentioning Obama's abuse of the FBI and FISA to spy on Donald Trump.

Via the Washington Examiner, Nancy said, "What the Republicans did — what the administration did ... goes even beyond Richard Nixon. Richard Nixon had an enemies list. This is about undermining the rule of law, and for these attorneys general ... or Sessions, at least, to say they, too, didn’t know anything about it is beyond belief."

Ah, but was it worse than Obama?

Nixon's campaign tried -- and failed -- to spy on the McGovern campaign. He never used the FBI to spy because that would be wrong.

Obama used the FBI successfully to spy on Donald Trump's campaign.

CNN did not confront Pelosi on that because CNN knew about it and never reported it, just as CNN knew about Saddam Hussein's torture and abuse of Iraqis and never reported it. 

Evidence? CNN confessed. It only did so because Hussein's evil regime was collapsing in the Iraq War.

The Bush administration took no action against CNN for aiding the enemy.

Obama spied.

The media lied.

Everyone's credibility died.

Who knows what Josef Biden's FBI and the media are up to these days? The press will never tell us.

  4. This took root when the Press/ Media had its own ox gored when Hillary Clinton got caught with the FBI files, and faced no Federal charges; the major media poo-pooed the story... I laugh now watching MSNBC try to 24 hr. push the story up to Xiden's meet with Putin yesterday, and the story still won't stick. It's D.O.A. ZB

    IIRC Fake News (it was then, too) hated J Edgar because he was an anti-communist and he had their number.

    1. I'd prefer J Edgar to the FBI and DOJ since 1992.

    2. Yep, J. Edgar was a hero. Unsung, of course.

  6. The intelligence community - FBI, DOJ, CIA, etc., plus Congressional IC oversight members - routinely leak to the press in order to promote their narrative. Sometimes the leaks are true and sometimes the leaks are lies, but it doesn't matter because the press prints whatever they get to further the narrative.

  8. I should note that in 1984, Orwell never mentions the United States as a going concern. It’s Oceania (Great Britain), Eurasia (Russia, obviously), and Eastasia (could be Japan, could be China - hard to say). Either America had withdrawn from the world and living self-sufficiently (which I think was where Mr. T was taking us) or we had gotten the shite kicked out of us and was not a factor (which is CLEARLY where The Black Jesus wants to take us). There will be a special place in Hell for Bathhouse Barry, but we need to make his earthly life a bit more hellish too…

    2. Actually: "The setting of 1984 is Oceania, a giant country comprised of the Americas; the Atlantic Islands, including the British Isles; Australia; and the southern portion of Africa."

  9. They are blaming the True President for the Deep State spying on his own White house counsel. That takes balls, even for the Professional Liars at the Times.

    If the Deep State spied on some fellow Democrats, too, that usually happens like this:

    1.) Somebody pissed off Obama (Blagojevich)
    2.) It just got too big to ignore (Kwame)
    3.) Charged but given a sweetheart deal, not to roll on the Bigger Fish, but to keep silent (Wolfe, Clinesmith)
    4.) Charged for appearances’ sake, but rigged for acquittal (Greg Craig)
    5.) Phony “investigation” designed to bury evidence (Hunter Biden)
    6.) Keeping that evidence for J. Edgar-style kompromat and leverage over politicians (also Hunter Biden)

    If Schiff and Swalwell were spied on by Mueller or some other Deep State pals, it was probably to protect Swalwell from the Fang Fang story and Schiff from the Ed Buck story. And for the kompromat.

  10. 06/17/21: All good things come to an end, and for Bright Side, the memoir by comedian Eric Idle (Monty Python; 2018), it came abruptly, at the very end of an otherwise brilliant book that I would have been delighted to recommend and keep in my library:

    "... soon I was home in LA with two days off for the [2016] presidential election. It was supposed to be [famous last words] the triumph of the first woman president of the United States, but unfortunately, Putin had other ideas" (p. 261).

    The Trump Derangement Syndrome, in this instance, ruined an almost perfect book. Let's skip the rest of Idle's insane statements.

    Pulped this date.

  11. A lot of people have no problem believing that Trump would order illegal surveillance of his enemies. I'm not saying he did, but I wouldn't bet my life that he wouldn't.

    OTOH, anyone who thinks that the FBI, DOJ, and/or IC would conduct illegal surveillance of Americans (or anyone else) on Trump's orders or for his benefit has not been paying attention the past 5-6 years.

    If Trump gave such an order the Deep State swamproaches would slow-walk the surveillance while leaking like a 60 year old woman doing jumping jacks.

    Meanwhile, the Democrats would be hosting Impeachment 3.0 faster than you could say "special prosecutor."

  12. As I keep saying, I don't KNOW if the media is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Dem Party, or if it's the other way round, but it's OBVIOUS that they are in CAHOOTS...and sleep together.

  13. Meanwhile, as our civil liberties are not supported by the ACLU, as Putin said, there are 450 Americans in jail with no bail for mostly trespassing charges on Jan 1. Meanwhile ANTIFA/BLM rioters have charges dropped for looting and arson.
    Remember this: President Adams and Wilson used their sedition acts to imprison Americans who criticized the government and the President in office.
    Then there is Pastor Martin Niemöller missive:
    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

  16. Never thought I'd live to see the day things were this bad. When Trump wins in 2024, he needs to take an axe to the SES level bureaucrats across EVERY executive branch agency...
    and I mean ALL OF THEM. Before deciding on replacements, decide whether or not that agency even needs to exist anymore. When you are left with the Agencies we are keeping, only promote as replacements those who are exemplary career employees, excellent at their jobs and respected by
    'boots on the ground' colleagues.
