While Obama presided over 8 years of never-ending wars, an ever-growing debt bubble, and a continuing erosion of our civil liberties, he was very good at one thing – manipulating the media. Yes, there is no doubt that Obama was the darling child of the media; a position he used to cover up the total incompetency of his administration. Obama still has that power, only now he’s using it put a false spin on his openly seditious activities against the Trump administration.
In the following video, Right Wing News looks at how Obama has openly dismissed the fact that he requested that Trump’s team be wiretapped as fiction. In actuality, he requested the wiretapping not once, but twice! And this wiretapping is just one part of his broader actions against the Trump administration, all of which have seen little coverage from the dishonest media. The truth cannot be hidden forever however, and day by day, more and more people become aware of Obama’s true nature. The only question is – what will Obama do when his fiction is exposed?
Former President Obama on Saturday denied President Trump’s accusation that Obama had Trump Tower phones tapped in the weeks before the November 2016 election.
“Neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false,” said Kevin Lewis, a spokesman for the former president.
Trump made the claim in a series of early Saturday morning tweets that included the suggestion that the alleged wiretapping was tantamount to “McCarthyism” and “Nixon/Watergate.”
“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism,” Trump tweeted.
“Is it legal for a sitting President to be ‘wire tapping’ a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!” he said in another tweet.
Trump also tweeted that a “good lawyer could make a great case of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!”
“How low has President Obama gone to tap (sic) my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergage. Bad (or sick) guy!” the president continued.
Trump does not specify how he uncovered the Obama administration’s alleged wiretapping.
However, he could be referencing a Breitbart article posted Friday that claimed the administration made two Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) requests in 2016 to monitor Trump communications and a computer server in Trump Tower, related to possible links with Russian banks.
No evidence was found.
The article was based on a segment by radio host Mark Levin.
However, the timelines for each seems to draw from a range of news reports over the last several months, including those from The New York Times and Heat Street.
Lewis also said Saturday: “A cardinal rule of the Obama administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice.”
Former Obama foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes tweeted earlier in the day: “No President can order a wiretap. Those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you.”
During Trump’s Saturday morning tweets, he also brought up the ongoing controversy surrounding Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his reported 2016 meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
Trump said the first meeting between the former senator and Kislyak was arranged by the Obama administration.
He then said Kislayk also visited the White House nearly two dozen times during the Obama administration.
“Just out: The same Russian Ambassador that met Jeff Sessions visited the Obama White House 22 times, and 4 times last year alone,” he wrote.
On Friday, Trump fought back against top Democratic lawmakers who are demanding his attorney general’s resignation over past meetings with Russia’s ambassador — after pictures emerged of the same lawmakers in similar meetings, exposing them to “hypocrisy” charges.
Trump tweeted: “I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it.
Fox News’ Serafin Gomez contributed to this story.
President Obama’s puppet master, Valerie Jarrett, released an official statement from President Barack Obama’a spokesperson.
The statement denied the charges made by President Donald Trump that the Obama administration had surveillance on Trump Tower and the Trump campaign during the election.
Can you count how many outs there are in that carefully-worded statement?
Here are a few big ones.
He says neither he nor any White House Official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen.
He didn’t deny there was surveillance, just said he didn’t order it. If the attorney general is already your creature, you don’t have to special order.
Also we know the surveillance was ordered on the server in Trump Tower, not necessarily the ‘person’ of Trump.
Which means they can deny surveillance on the person, yet still get to see all his emails on the server.
Then there’s this report.
So he did order it but as investigation of Russian campaign? If it happened to catch Trump communications, oh well.
But we already know that this claim that they never surveilled a U.S. person is a lie.
Neither Jarrett or Obama explain how their statement squares with the fact that their administration:
He also approved tapping Angela Merkel, although she is not a “U.S. citizen” so that’s why he used that term.
So forgive us if we fail to find this statement sufficiently calming…
Media is reporting on President Donald Trump’s twitter storm about being surveilled by the Obama administration.
But they are leaving out on critical fact in so doing.
Here’s a sample of two of the headlines:
What jumps out at you? The “no evidence,” right?
Yet, there is evidence of the surveillance. It was widely reported at the time, including by the New York Times. Here’s Heat Street talking about the two requests for FISA warrants on the server in Trump Tower, citing the New York Times story.
The first request, which, sources say, named Trump, was denied back in June, but the second was drawn more narrowly and was granted in October after evidence was presented of a server, possibly related to the Trump campaign, and its alleged links to two banks; SVB Bank and Russia’s Alfa Bank. While the Times story speaks of metadata, sources suggest that a FISA warrant was granted to look at the full content of emails and other related documents that may concern US persons.
Here’s a great Fox report from this morning with security professionals Jim Hanson and Lt. Col Tony Shaffer. They also note that the surveillance happened. Not only that it happened, but that even after finding no connection to Russia, the surveillance continued.
So why is the media pretending it didn’t occur and trying to paint Trump as crazy?
Do we even need to ask?
