"12 Pieces Of Proof: The MSM Knew Obama Spied On Trump and LIED To Cover It Up"

1. Heat Street - November 7, 2016
EXCLUSIVE: FBI ‘Granted FISA Warrant’ Covering Trump Camp’s Ties To Russia
Two separate sources with links to the counter-intelligence community have confirmed to Heat Street that the FBI sought, and was granted, a FISA court warrant in October, giving counter-intelligence permission to examine the activities of ‘U.S. persons’ in Donald Trump’s campaign with ties to Russia.
2. The Guardian – January 11, 2017
The Guardian has learned that the FBI applied for a warrant from the foreign intelligence surveillance (Fisa) court over the summer in order to monitor four members of the Trump team suspected of irregular contacts with Russian officials. The Fisa court turned down the application asking FBI counter-intelligence investigators to narrow its focus. According to one report, the FBI was finally granted a warrant in October, but that has not been confirmed, and it is not clear whether any warrant led to a full investigation.
3. The New York Times – January 12, 2017
In its final days, the Obama administration has expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.
The new rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.
The change means that far more officials will be searching through raw data. Essentially, the government is reducing the risk that the N.S.A. will fail to recognize that a piece of information would be valuable to another agency, but increasing the risk that officials will see private information about innocent people.

At least the media is consistent.

Where's John Dean when you need him. One inside acknowledging that the Obama administration intentionally used the surveillance for political purposes could bust this wide open and send a few people to jail. One can hope.

Two presidential views on the value of good, honest labor for our leader:

“No man needs sympathy because he has to work, because he has a burden to carry. Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.”
― Theodore Roosevelt

“My father taught me to work; he did not teach me to love it.”
― Abraham Lincoln

Lefties are, for the most part, true believers.

There also seems to be an omerta that makes the Mafia look like a bunch of high school girl sophomores.

Only way to get to Obama is to make his underlings squeal. Time for Sessions to go after Lynch or one of the soft pajama boys in Obama's chain of command.

TR never stopped with the propaganda. At least with Lincoln you got the occasional moment of truth. Of course TR was the rule and Lincoln the exception. What's the rule of life, especially for the higher ups? Never admit to a human weakness. Make of yourself a fortress. It's wearying. The reason I like to listen to Savage every now and then is that he actually talks about vulnerability, sadness and even happiness. A little while ago he quoted some Chinese poet of the 11th century to the effect that happiness is taking a good dump. Ah so........
