An honest man....soon to be trashed by the media.


You can't get much further away in political Ideology and belief than I am with respect to Dennis Kucinich. He is as liberal as you can get and as a Congressman was all about abortion and gun control and wasting our money on dubious liberal bullshit. But I have to respect him as an honest guy. Sort of reminds me of Robert Cook who you remember posting on that other place. You don't have to agree with anything he says to acknowledge his integrity.

Recently Congressman Kucinich stated that he had no doubt that President Trump and his campaign was wiretapped. Because he had been wiretapped as a sitting Congressman. Just as in the case with the Trump campaign there are transcripts of a private call between Kucinich and the Libyan government. Read about here at RealClearPolitics.

The left and the media are scrambling to ridicule President Trumps claim that Obama wiretapped his campaign. When just last week they were quoting transcripts and demanding everyone from General Flynn to Jeff Sessions to the President resign because of some make believe scandal. One tweet changed all that. Now they are circling the wagons around the Jug Eared Jesus and screeching that all the stuff they were quoting from never happened.


The latest wrinkle is a little convoluted but very plausible. The NSA tapes everything. Anything we say or do on the phone or the internet is at their fingertips. Supposedly you need a warrant to examine it. A FISA warrant is the usual vehicle. Now we find out that we have a reciprocal agreement with the Brits that allows them access to all of our data generated from the NSA. Without a warrant. Without anything. They just have to ask for it. So they could ask for all of the intercepts of communication from Trump tower. Including phone calls by President Trump. The NSA can just hand it over. The theory is that Obama asked them for this information. So his fingerprints won't be on it. No warrant. No record. Just a President listening to the conversations of the candidate of the opposing party.

How is that right? Isn't that how they got Nixon. It might be technically legal but is certainly very very wrong.

I know the main stream media will not care. I know the Democrats and the Never Trumpers and Old Man McCain and Lady Graham will not care. My only hope is that all Americans with an ounce of integrity will stand up and say that this can not stand.

I think Dennis Kucinich and Robert Cook would stand up. Will you? (I am looking at you Ritmo)

If you look at his bio, he worked as a janitor to put all his siblings through school and then worked his way through. He may be weird, but Troop is right about his being the real deal.

Plausible deniability. Hitler never signed anything and the highest the paper trail went was Heydrich. That would not have saved him at Nuremburg any more than the fact Nixon had nothing to do with the break-in and may not have violated the law would have kept him from being impeached, tried, convicted, and sent to Devil's Island by a Democrat Congress.

Replace the Whigs with "Trumpist thugs" whose war-cry is, "Lock her up!", and the same can happen to Pissy.

Yeah, well, as far as Kucinich's lib status goes, hero today, goat tomorrow, and tomorrow is where we're at.

Exactly. I don't even care if Trump was making it up. It was brilliant move. Instead of talking about Sessions having bullshit "secret" meetings with the Russians, we're talking about whether Obama wiretapped Trump.

Brilliant.
