GOP: Enact MAGA Agenda or Disappear

I departed from the Republican Party after supporting a GOP candidate for President in 2012 I did not in the first place. THEN he; i.e. Mitt Romney, lost! Romney ran a weenie campaign refusing to point out Obama’s horrendous record and allowing Obama to get away with lying without confronting the situation. So I left the GOP.

 

Even though I stopped being a card-carrying Republican, I ended up voting for GOP candidates in my State. A Democrat was, is and always will be an unviable choice! This is the case especially after Obama has turned the Democratic Party into the Communist-Dem Party.

 

Then came Donald Trump. I like most people was amused but felt this is a guy that could never win, lacked Conservative credentials and I was uncertain of any dedication he had to the Christian faith. I was Cruzing with Ted until the math eliminated his campaign.

 

So, was I going to be stuck voting for The Donald? A guy I did not want as a candidate for POTUS? So I began to listen to Donald Trump.

 

Unlike Romney, Trump was willing to Muslim terrorists Radical Islamic terrorists and call Hillary Clinton a crook. The more the Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) harangued Trump, more I began to like him and his populist “Make America Great Again.”

 

But I was still dissatisfied with the Republican Party. Boehner as the Speaker was ineffective after the GOP took the House in 2014.

 

Then 2016 came. Trump won POTUS and the GOP was the majority Party in both Houses of Congress. There was the appearance that Conservatives finally had an authentic voice and reversing the curse of Obama’s Change would be imminent.

 

I WAS WRONG!

 

After 8 years of saying what happen if the Republicans controlled government with a Conservative reawakening, little happened except Congressional resistance to Trump’s MAGA agenda.

 

AGAIN, the GOP had let me and many fellow Conservatives down. President Trump was and is actually making things happen as far as Executive action will take him. But nothing concrete to the promised MAGA will be forthcoming as long as Republicans in the Senate and Republicans in the House resist President Trump. These GOP resisters might as well join the Communist-Dem Party. EVERY political inaction by the Republicans is a vote for the status quo of the Communist-Dem Party to Socialize and disrupt Christian faith and morals in America. In essence – the continuation of the Obama’s Fundamental Transformation of America.

 

My fellow Americans. Do you want to live in a nation whence political correctness and multiculturalism define how you – an American – must live according to what the government tells you how to believe and worship and speak?

 

Since the Republican legislators cannot get it together enough to resist and change the Dem fundamental transformation, it might be time to abandon the GOP and look for Trump activism in a political party willing to act as a monolith for Conservative principles.

 

This is why Brent Bozell’s editorial-opinion piece on the slow death of the Republican Party is a very important read.

The Slow Death of the Republican Party

The Grand Old Party is about to commit suicide.

August 27, 2017

Breitbart Big Government

 

All this talk about Trump this, and Trump that, masks a far bigger political controversy. The Republican Party leadership in Washington, D.C., has fundamentally betrayed its constituents and they are about to learn that they’ve been double-crossed — for years.

 

Every Republican candidate’s stock speech sounds the same, the thunderous roar about a government out of control, federal spending out of control (insert charts and graphs and why, if you stack hundred dollar bills, they will reach the edge of the universe), federal taxes out of control (insert comparisons to socialist countries), the federal bureaucracy out of control (insert metaphors about chains, yokes, and the like), the family shattered with federal funding of abortion a crime against humanity (watch for it — there! The heart-wrenching sob), and our military is emasculated.

 

Two more items were added to the menu, courtesy of Obama. Obamacare Will Be Repealed! and Illegal Immigration Will Not Stand!

 

In 2009, the Democrats controlled everything, partly due to the Republicans’ cowardice on Capitol Hill, and in part because of some of the most inept candidates and campaigns America has seen in years. The Obama folks could have played it safe but went for socialist gold, using the power of the legislative and the executive branches (and later the judiciary, thank you Justice Roberts) to advance their agenda.

 

That included federal spending on a level unmatched in human history resulting ultimately in a $19 trillion in debt we simply cannot pay, and with so many tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities that “infinity” is not far behind. One seventh of the economy was confiscated by the federal government with the passage of Obamacare. Our national borders were declared open and discussions over our national sovereignty closed. And to top it off, the Democrats all but declared themselves above the law.

 

The GOP harrumphed that this would not stand, by God! If only… if only America would vote them into the majority.

 

In 2009, the Tea Party was born. The Grand Old Party was rejuvenated. Happy days were here again.

 

Just one year later, the Republicans captured the House, and with that, the power of the purse. They now had the authority to stop the insane spending on so many obnoxious and wholly unnecessary ventures. They could end Obamacare simply by not funding it.

 

Instead, under the “leadership” of John Boehner, it did absolutely nothing. Why, if only we had the Senate! Then we could take on the President!

 

So in 2014, after spending hundreds of millions of campaign dollars running hundreds of thousands of television and radio ads pledging to end illegal immigration while repealing Obamacare “root and branch” (author: Mitch McConnell), they were given control of the Senate.

 

And within a month McConnell re-authorized both, along with every single other thing Harry Reid and Obama wanted for yet another year.

 

But that’s because we can’t do what we promised until we have the Presidency! The excuse was as predictable as summer heat in the Sahara.

 

In 2016, they were given that too.

 

They were given everything.

 

In January of this year, they formally controlled both houses of Congress and the executive branch. Every single thing they’d ever promised was now possible.

 

They now had the power to enact every single spending cut they’d ever solemnly pledged. All those wasteful programs designed to fill the liberal sandbox — PBS, NPR, Planned Parenthood, NEH and the rest of the alphabet soup; all the hundreds of billions of dollars in corporate welfare to multi-billion-dollar corporations; all of the hundreds of billions of dollars directed toward leftist social engineering — poof! All of it could come to an end with a stroke of a pen.

 

They now had the power to restore fiscal tax sanity too. Remember the flat tax? The fair tax? Slashing the highest corporate taxes in the world? Giving you a tax break? All of it could be done with a snap of the fingers.

 

Repeal Obamacare? Check. End illegal immigration? Check. Build the wall? Check.

 

Crush the Deep State? Done, by God, done!

 

There was not a damn thing the Democrats could do to stop them from draining the swamp.

 

Except the Republican leadership didn’t mean it. With the exception of the Freedom Caucus in the House, and literally a handful in the Senate, the rank-and-file didn’t either. Not one word of it.

 

The opportunity arose for the vote to repeal Obamacare, and after huffing and puffing, and huffing and puffing some more, the dust settled and socialized health care remains the law of the land, perhaps permanently.

 

The opportunity arose for tax reform, to enact the cuts America desperately needs. It was never a matter of if, it was a matter of how much. It is now mid-August and nothing, absolutely nothing has been accomplished — even attempted!

 

And now we face the final test: the debt ceiling. Will we or won’t we stop the spending madness? Will the Republicans enact the cuts they’ve promised, or will they now be the ones to kick the can, piling evermore trillions of dollars of debt on their own grandchildren?

 

By every indication that’s precisely what they plan to do. The signal has come from President Trump, from Speaker Ryan, and from Majority Leader McConnell. The debt ceiling will be raised and no fiscal sanity will be restored.

 

There is no difference between Republicans and Democrats. Put them together. They are the swamp.

 

Just as Republicans have the power to enact the agenda they’ve pledged in toto, so too do they now own the federal government, in toto. It’s no longer Obamacare. It’s GOPcare. It’s no longer crazy liberal Democratic spending. It’s crazy liberal Republican spending. It’s no longer socialist Democratic Party taxation, it’s socialist Republican Party taxation. All the legislation authorizing all these programs, all the graft, all the waste, all the obscenity, all the immorality, and where Planned Parenthood is concerned, all the killing — all of it is now formally authored by the Republican Party.

 

Come the Congressional elections next year, and the presidential election in 2020, the Grand Old Party will once again bellow its hallowed promises. But this time it won’t work. This time there will be no straw men to blame. This time their voters will know those hallowed promises are not even hollow promises. They are lies.

 

These voters are tasting betrayal. They will not vote to swallow more vomit.

 

We are watching the GOP systematically committing suicide.

Sedition: U.S. Intelligence Community Prepping For Soft Coup


Michael DePinto writing for Freedom Outpost explains the danger the Dems and the Mainstream Media (MSM) are doing to America sowing lies as truth. Even worse, DePinto demonstrates CIA collaboration with the American Left imputing lies as truth against President Trump. DePinto calls this collaboration a “Soft Coup.” I call it a Deep State act of treason.

Sedition: U.S. Intelligence Community Prepping For Soft Coup

Sadly, because of how dishonest the mainstream media is, most Americans do not realize the severity of the divide that presently exists within this country and the lengths to which the far-left is willing to go to remove President Trump from office. For that reason, anyone in the alternative media who attempts to warn people of the potential for “civil war,” or for “martial law” is regarded as “conspiracy theorist.”

 

There are, however, a very small and select few in the mainstream media that recognize the gravity of the situation, and realize how dangerous the situation is becoming. Monica Crowley recognized the far-left’s agenda for what it was right from the start. She’s often said:

 

“There is a very dangerous and very effective destabilization campaign underway against this president, his administration and his agenda…. these forces are not just looking to delegitimize him.. they want to personally destroy himdestroy his presidency and they would like to see the man in prison!”

 

Sean Hannity has been one of the only other figures in the mainstream media who actually recognizes the movement by the far-left for what it is: Prelude to revolution. Referring to the massive amount of censorship taking place in this country right now, and the all out assault on free speech against anyone trying to spread the truth by warning the American people about what’s coming, Sean said:

 

“There is now a coordinated attempt to silence the voice of every outspoken conservative in this country. If we don’t stop it right now, there won’t be any conservative voices on radio or television left.

 

Liberal fascism is alive lie and well in America today. Their goal is simple. They want to shut up and shut down, completely silence all conservative voices by any means necessary. Here’s the difference. Unlike the left, I don’t have any problem with what the other side says. If you want to listen to liberals on radio or TV, read their articles, follow them on social media, go for it

 

So let me be clear tonight. Everyone who publicly supported President Trump is a target. This is very political. We have seen repeatedly that the left knows no limits in these efforts. They have gone after and attacked the first lady; they have attacked members of the president’s family, every White House advisor. They’ve even attacked his daughter and his 10-year-old son.

 

Right now, the United States is a giant powder-keg that could blow at any moment, and that is precisely what global agitators like George Soros and his lackeys within the deep state would love to see happen. In the following video Right Wing News reviews recent developments, and explains why now more than ever is the time for people to be preparing for when things inevitably go sideways…

READ THE REST

 

State of the Nation writes:

 

Deep State will not stop their stealthy Purple Revolution until Trump is gone

 

C.I.A. using Mainstream Media to run propaganda campaign against Trump Administration—24/7

 

“The C.I.A. always softens up the citizenry of a targeted country before a soft coup.  If that doesn’t work, they simply execute a covert but violent overthrow via assassination like they did with JFK.  Lastly, they will resort to an outright attack on the key organs of government authority and/or military power, but only when absolutely necessary.”

— Veteran Intelligence Analyst

 

Do you get it yet?

 

The NWO globalist entity known as Deep State, along with the Democratic Party, will — under no conditions — accept Donald Trump as the legitimate President of the United States of America.  For that matter, neither will the many RINOs within the Republican Party.

 

Because of this unrelenting predicament, there is no stopping the USS Donald Trump from hitting the iceberg.  You cannot thwart destiny when it’s preordained in such a profound and fundamental way.  After all, the welfare and continuity of the American Republic is at stake.

 

By the way, no one said that Trump is at the helm of a 21st century Titanic.  He may just be the captain of a humongous icebreaker.   Only time will tell, however, and that time is fast approaching.

 

RUSSIA SCARE: C.I.A. Running PsyOp On The American People

 

For the uninitiated, ever since Election Day on November 8, 2016, The Company (aka the C.I.A.) has been very busy implementing “Plan B”, often referred to as the Purple Revolution. Understanding the true purpose and key players behind this highly organized plot is crucial if it to be averted.  As follows: BEWARE: The Purple Revolution Comes To America

 

This seditious revolution has several pillars that define both its strategy and MO.  The whole world is watching daily the “Russia scare” strategy.  Deep State knows that the Russian boogeyman was effective during the Cold War so why should they reinvent the wheel?

 

The following exposé details some of the subterfuge by Deep State and their agents within the Democratic Party which gave rise to the bogus “Russian hacking claim”.  In the face of so much MSM fake news about Russia, who will now believe the obvious truth in this post?

 

C.I.A. and MSM: Fric & Frac of Deep State

 

Truly, no one has ever seen anything like it.  The C.I.A. uses their primary organs of propaganda — CNN, NBC, ABC and CBS — to run an unprecedented propaganda war against a sitting POTUS.  Likewise, the spook agency uses every major newspaper of record — especially The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Los Angeles Times — to float patently false accusations and deliberately misleading headlines on their front pages.

 

KEY POINT: Even Nixon was not subjected to such a daily barrage of fake news during the height of Watergate.  And, “Yes!”, much of that media hysteria was also contrived fake news, produced to facilitate his premeditated removal which was in actuality a soft coup.

 

The CIA knows full well how to execute a color revolution.  They’ve carried out many around the globe over several decades.  Their trademark MO is to sufficiently frighten the citizenry about dangers of their current government or leader.   This is why the American people are now treated to a nonstop campaign of Trump-bashing by the MSM.  The CIA is aware that eventually, a critical mass of citizens will actively participate in an overthrow. And that many who don’t will at least lend their moral support to it.

 

The false story about ‘Russia election hacking’, of course, was the perfect pretext for the U.S. Intelligence Community to rally around.  Agents in all 17 agencies could be compelled to go with the flow — seditious flow — because the POTUS was said to be working with America’s historical enemy — R U S S I A!  Throw in a Democratic Party that is still beside itself with rage and madness about Hillary’s defeat and you have a full-blown Purple Revolution in the works. See the following link for valuable perspective: Former Democrat Insider Goes Rogue—Exposes Plot To Falsely Blame Russia

 

This total scam being run on the American people is not unprecedented.  Both World Wars of the last century saw similar war propaganda being thrown about here, there, and everywhere.  That’s just how it’s always done.  They did it against Germany prior to World War II after they demonized the Kaiser prior to World War I.

 

The salient point here is that it is now Putin who is being vilified and Russia that is being represented as a mortal enemy of the West.  Nothing could be further from the truth, and yet a vast majority of Americans believe the lies. Whenever a really big lie is repeated frequently, it starts to sink in.  That’s what CNN and NBC are all about today.  So are the NYT and WaPo.  Their CIA masters in Deep State know all of the best mind-control programs, as well as the magic formulas for effective war propaganda.

 

The MSM and C.I.A. are guilty of sedition

 

There’s one major advantage that the President has at this pivotal stage of the Purple Revolution. The MSM now commits sedition on a weekly basis.  The C.I.A. likewise openly perpetrates treason against the nation.  These traitors to the American Republic expose themselves regularly because they think they can act with impunity.  This public display of arrogance and hubris has never happened before in the USA.

 

As a consequence, the MSM can legally be shut down with one executive order.  The C.I.A. can be dissolved with one stroke of the presidential pen.  Even the FCC can close down various MSM organs of propaganda for blatantly violating various rules and regulations. The law is squarely on the side of the FCC in this regard.

 

Hence, the longer that Trump permits the traitors to out themselves for all to see, the more of them he can get rid of when the time is right.  That moment is fast approaching as Deep State is getting closer to pressing the button on stage 2 of the 2017 revolution.  Their implementation plan has been designed according to a set schedule which sees this Fall as a crucial phase of the Purple Revolution.

 

What began with a clandestine partnership between George Soros and Hillary Clinton back in 2016 has evolved into a full-blown conspiracy to bring down the U.S. Federal Government under President Trump.

 

DO NOT MISS: Soros: Western Society Must Fall Before One World Govt Can Be Established 

 

Clearly, the growing insurrection against Trump has many disparate liberal organizations and powerful progressives supporting them.  As always, George Soros is front and center in this treasonous plot.

  

Therefore, he should be arrested post haste for contributing to so much personal injury, including numerous deaths, as well as extensive property damage. The Clintons And Soros Launch America’s Purple Revolution

 

Conclusion

 

Where is this all going?

 

God only knows.

 

If the American people do not soon demand an end to the violence and brash lawbreaking, the perps will only become more emboldened.  The leftwing Bolsheviks will intensify their insurgency nationwide.  They will inevitably increase the number of rioters and protesters — from the ranks of so many disillusioned illegal aliens — who are quite willing to disrupt civil society.

 

The Bolshevik Left now demonstrates an unparalleled willingness to harm people and destroy property never seen within the body politic.  Their use of agents provocateur has become transparent to even the most naive and uninformed.  Hence, President Trump is completely within his power to immediately prosecute all of those culpable agents of Deep State.

 

These reckless subversives are cut from the same RED bolt of cloth as those who incited the Bolshevik Revolution.  In fact, the Left is becoming more vicious and violent by the event.  Just as their ilk terrorized the major cities throughout Russia in 1917, they use the same savage tactics in 2017 across the USA.

 

Exactly 100 Years After the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917→Comes the Percolating Purple Revolution of 2017

 

One thing is for sure: the C.I.A. will not stop this uprising until Trump is frogmarched out of the White House.  The question then remains: What will the patriots and nationalists do?

Jenny Beth Martin on IRS scandal: ‘We need to know what happened’


Remember how Obama’s IRS targeted Conservative groups – ESPECIALLY Tea Party groups – to prevent Conservatives from campaigning against Obama?

 

Remember Lois Lerner was involved in IRS targeting then took the 5th in Congressional hearings to save her buttocks? She is now retired with a healthy pension. Thanks to Sixth Circuit Appeals Court, Lerner is going to be forced to testify.

 

Remember how the IRS Commissioner John Koskinen did next to zero to bring IRS culprits to justice? Apparently, President Trump has forgot to drain the IRS portion of the swamp because Koskinen is still the IRS Commissioner.

Jenny Beth Martin on IRS scandal: ‘We need to know what happened’

In a recent interview with Fox & Friends’ Steve Doocy, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin demands that testimony from today’s hearings into the IRS targeting scandal be made public so we, the American people, are able to “get to the bottom” of why some groups applying for tax-exempt status were singled-out for added scrutiny during the Obama administration.

 

“…[W]e need to know what happened. They need to testify and the public needs to hear that testimony to be able to get to the bottom of what happened to us so we can finally have justice,” Jenny Beth said of the former top IRS officials, who requested their testimony be sealed out of concern for their well-being.

 

Numerous Americans were targeted under Lois Lerner’s scheme at the IRS, and IRS Commissioner John Koskinen stonewalled congressional investigation into the matter. Click here to join Jenny Beth Martin in demanding justice for those Americans targeted by the IRS and for IRS Commissioner John Koskinen’s immediate dismissal.

 

Impeach Koskinen

 

The IRS scandal, and continued calls for our elected representatives to follow through on their promise to fully repeal Obamacare, keep us busy every day at Tea Party Patriots. As health-insurer Aetna announces it’s getting out of Obamacare, we’re reminded daily that a health-insurance infrastructure that places more power in the hands of government arbitrators than it does in the hands of the American people is fundamentally un-American. Click here to help Tea Party Patriots encourage our lawmakers to fully repeal Obamacare.

 

America’s future – as with the Obamacare repeal – can sometimes look bleak as lawmakers continue to go soft on their promises, but don’t lose heart. When our mainstream news media is more concerned with how many scoops of ice cream President Trump prefers eating compared to his guests (yes, this “story” actually garnered a headline), you know it’s time now, more than ever, to get America back on track and tackling the issues critical to our continued well-being and our children’s well-being – something former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich emphasizes in a recent column for Fox News.

 

“Republicans must decide if they are going to fight for what they believe in or retreat to the tenuous safety of the beltway bubble,” he says.

 

One promising development is the more than 120 seats on federal lower courts President Trump has the opportunity to try and fill – assuming Republicans and some Democrats can come together as they did during the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

 

As Jenny Beth says in a Washington Times opinion piece, “What’s better than another Antonin Scalia on the U.S. Supreme Court? How about another Antonin Scalia on the Supreme Court and another 10 Antonin Scalias on lower federal courts, ready to rule and move up when the time is right?” Click here to help Tea Party Patriots urge our senators to confirm to our courts judges who respect our Constitution!

Tea Party Patriots Core Principles

 

Tea Party Patriots stands for every American, and is home to millions who have come together to pursue the American Dream and to keep that Dream alive for their children and grandchildren.

 

What unites the tea party movement is the same set of core principles that brought America together at its founding, that kindled the American Dream in the hearts of those who struggled to build our nation, and made the United States of America the greatest, most successful country in world history.

 

At its root the American Dream is about freedom. Freedom to work hard and the freedom to keep the fruits of your labor to use as you see fit without harming others and without hindering their freedom. Very simply, three guiding principles give rise to the freedom necessary to pursue and live the American Dream:

You’d think after the election cycle that the Dems would be content to stall the GOP/Trump agenda by whatever legal means necessary, right?

 

Unfortunately, it is becoming clear that the Soros/Obama and probably Clinton faction of the Dems have become so unhinged for losing to President Trump that between November 8, 2016 and Inauguration Day January 20, 2017; the Leftist Moonbats conspired a shadow government disruption of the Trump Administration.

 

So, the question every American that honors America’s Founding Documents should be, “WHY?”

Dear Friend of America’s Survival:

 

Eminating [sic] from the “deep state,” another “scandal” has been created. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has just held a news conference. It is much ado about nothing.

 

This will never end until and unless Trump cleans house. DRAIN THE SWAMP

 

INVESTIGATE THE LEAKS!!!

 

My new column, The “Alternative Government” Vs. Trump, identifies the person in the press getting the leaks. START WITH HIM!!!  He is a mouthpiece for the CIA.

 

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and Ranking Member Schiff have approved the Scope of Investigation for the inquiry by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence into the Russian active measures campaign targeting the 2016 U.S. election.

 

One of the issues is: What possible leaks of classified information took place related to the Intelligence Community Assessment of these matters?

 

There is an easy way to answer this: subpoena the Post columnist getting the leaks. We know who he is. Read my column.

 

Do you believe in elected constitutional government? Or should the “deep state” run our affairs as a nation?

 

A great conservative lawyer, Larry Klayman, has described in detail what the “alternative government” is doing to the Trump Administration.

NSA Listening to Trump

 

By Cliff Kincaid

March 2, 2017

America’s Survival

 

President Trump gave a good speech on Tuesday night, but his presidency is still hanging by a thread. Attorney Larry Klayman says an “alternative government” in the intelligence community continues to target him. “These intelligence agencies are more powerful than the president himself,” Klayman said on the Fox Business Network. “They have the ability to blackmail people in this administration to the point that the American people’s interests are going to be subverted.”

 

Klayman, the founder of Freedom Watch, said, “How can he [President Trump] represent the interests of the American people when he knows the NSA is likely wiretapping everything he says with foreign leaders and everyone else?”

 

klayman-nsa-tapping-trump

Klayman: NSA Tapping Trump

 

It may seem like ancient history, but the media used to be concerned about surveillance of American citizens by U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies. After President Trump was elected, such concern suddenly disappeared. In fact, the media became the recipients of illegal leaks of private conversations by Trump administration officials. One such leak forced the resignation of national security adviser Michael T. Flynn.

 

Claude Barfield, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), writes that there was nothing improper with U.S. intelligence surveillance of phone calls to and from the Russian ambassador. However, in regard to Flynn, existing law does not permit the NSA or FBI to “listen to the communications of Americans who may be caught in…eavesdropping.”

 

The allegation that Flynn violated “the ancient 18th century Logan Act that forbids diplomatic activity by private U.S. citizens is no longer relevant, according to almost all legal experts,” notes Barfield. So the wiretaps could not be justified on that flimsy basis.

 

Flynn was forced out on the equally spurious grounds that he forgot to tell Vice President Mike Pence about elements of the conversations he had with the Russian official.

 

Barfield says that “a criminal—and certainly civil rights—violation did occur with the public leaks of the details of his conversations with the foreign ambassador from someone (or some persons) in the intelligence community.” The leak violated the Espionage Act, which makes intentional disclosure of classified “communications intelligence activities” a felony. What’s more, citing Timothy H. Edgar of Brown University, it is also a crime for national security officials “to leverage legitimate foreign intelligence collection to reveal public information in order to damage [an] individual they do not believe should serve.”

 

It is well-known that Flynn’s appointment as national security adviser was opposed by elements in the intelligence community, especially the CIA.

 

Edgar writes that “Flynn himself may be the first victim of civil liberties abuse during the Trump administration.” He says, “If officials had concerns about Flynn, the law requires they lodge those complaints through the system and not through leaks.”

 

This means that some intelligence officials viewed Flynn as a threat and wanted him out, using any means possible.

 

Edgar suggests that Flynn call the ACLU for legal help, but a far better course of action would be to call litigator Larry Klayman, who says it’s clear that “the NSA is spying on the President, his White House, and the administration in general.”

 

Klayman believes that “loyalists to former President Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, and their leftist comrades” are behind the illegal surveillance.

Former Congressman Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) told Newsmax TV that the NSA “can collect on the Russian embassy, no problem,” but that “when they collect on an American, whether it’s here in the United States or when we collect inadvertently on an American overseas, that information immediately should be what we call minimized. The name should be taken away.”

 

“Hoekstra explained that a court order must be granted in order to receive permission to release the name of any American captured by the NSA’s spying techniques,” the Newsmax story said.

 

Rather than be minimized or eliminated, the name was illegally leaked to Washington Post columnist David Ignatius. We discussed this sequence of events in the column, “Why the CIA Wants to Destroy Flynn.” Ignatius quoted “a senior U.S. government official” as the source of the information about Flynn.

 

During his appearance on the Fox Business Channel, Klayman discussed this illegal surveillance and offered to represent Flynn in a legal action. He repeated his claim that the intelligence community was engaged in illegal surveillance not only of Flynn but of other Trump officials, including the President himself.

 

Klayman has asked for an emergency hearing on this matter from Judge Richard Leon, who had previously ruled in Klayman’s favor in a lawsuit against NSA surveillance. He said the evidence suggests the existence of an “alternative government,” based in the intelligence community, which is more powerful than elected officials.

 

On the same program, a clip was played of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, saying that the Flynn case represented an abuse of authority. He said that Flynn had his telephone call listened to by the government and leaked to the press, and that if this had happened to a member of the Obama administration, “you can imagine the Democrats in the House and Senate would be going crazy…”

 

Nunes said that, in order for the intelligence community to listen to an American such as Flynn, a special warrant is required. “I am quite sure this wasn’t done in this case,” he said.

 

The Washington Monthly, a liberal publication, published a story by Martin Longman that began, “When it comes to Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, I have long seen him as an informal member of the intelligence community who often acts as their mouthpiece.” Longman concluded that “the intelligence community took down Flynn…”

 

The official bio for Ignatius mentions that he covered the CIA when he worked for The Wall Street Journal.

 

At the Post, Ignatius has expressed concern about whether Obama CIA director John Brennan’s “modernization” of the agency will survive Trump. “After interviewing several dozen CIA officers and veterans over the past several months,” Ignatius wrote, “my conclusion is that Brennan’s reforms should continue…”

 

Based on stories like this, it would appear that Ignatius is more than willing, even anxious, to advertise his CIA connections.

 

Any investigation of what Trump calls “illegal leaks” should begin with him.

TRUMP TWEETS HIS OUTRAGE OVER OBAMA WIRE TAPPING TRUMP TOWER DURING CAMPAIGN

 

MARCH 4, 2017

Minutemen News

 

In a possible reaction to a Breitbart story published yesterday, in which writer, Joel Pollak, detailed Mark Levin’s analysis of ten ways the Obama administration tried to undermine the presidential campaign and administration of Donald Trump.

 

Breitbart offers:

 

  1. June 2016: FISA request.The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.

 

 

  1. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

 

The article sums up the ten actions, Levin says, should be the target of a Congressional investigation:

 

In summary: the Obama administration sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign; continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found; then relaxed the NSA rules to allow evidence to be shared widely within the government, virtually ensuring that the information, including the conversations of private citizens, would be leaked to the media.

 

In response, President Trump began tweeting for all to see.

✔@realDonaldTrump

Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

Donald J. Trump 

✔@realDonaldTrump

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!

5:49 AM – 4 Mar 2017

 

 

Donald J. Trump 

✔@realDonaldTrump

I’d bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!

5:52 AM – 4 Mar 2017

How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

Will Plame Lie Repeat with Flynn?

Michael Ginsberg has some interesting speculation pertaining to Mike Flynn’s resignation as National Security Advisor to the President. Ginsberg senses a witch similar to the experience of Scooter Libby. The Dems hunted President Bush and wanted him to go down in flames.

 

When nothing else worked, the Dems fabricated a felony committed by Scooter Libby while he was Chief of Staff for then Vice President Cheney. The Dems talked their way into having a Special Prosecutor assigned to investigate who might have revealed that desk jockey Valerie Plame worked for the CIA. The accusation occurred because Plame’s name became public in a news story in regard to the now largely discredited report of Joe Wilson. Wilson – a Dem acolyte – was dispatched the nation of Niger to investigate if there was any accuracy to Intel reports that Saddam Hussein was trying to import uranium yellow cake for a nuclear weapons program.

 

Libby AND no one else was EVER convicted of releasing Plame’s name. When the connection failure occurred in the Special Prosecution, Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald went after Scooter Libby for lying even though the truth was a mix-up of memory. Yup, that was the ONLY egregious crime to get a conviction. And even that conviction is tainted with prosecutorial misconduct by preventing exonerating evidence from the Defense effort.

 

Ginsberg senses a repeat of a “no there – there” prosecution instituted under the pressure of Dems who can’t stand that Crooked Hillary lost to President Trump.

Trump Should Beware Of The Flynn Affair Becoming The Plame Game

mike-flynn 

The resignation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn bears more than a few disturbing similarities to a scandal that brought the Bush administration to its knees.

 

By Michael Ginsberg

MARCH 1, 2017

The Federalist

 

Ever since the inauguration, Democrats have been searching high and low for ways to discredit and undermine the Trump administration. Some Democrats, such as Maxine Waters, have openly admitted they want to impeach President Trump and are on alert for any possible grounds.

 

Dan Rather has gone on record comparing the Mike Flynn affair to Watergate, and pundit Sally Kohn tweeted a step-by-step recipe for removing President Trump and replacing him with Hillary Clinton. Not a day goes by that the media doesn’t seize upon some alleged Trump gaffe, misstep, or scandal or, when all else fails, supposed dysfunction in the Trump White House.

 

It is obvious that Democrats and the media are intent on strangling the Trump administration in its crib. They seek every weapon to accomplish this goal. They slow-roll the confirmation of Trump’s cabinet. They play up the argument that Trump lost the popular vote. They regularly attack him and his advisers as a racist and anti-Semitic. So far, despite the exhausting, daily swirl of hyperbolic reporting, the Trump administration has more or less stayed on course in implementing its policies.

 

However, this does not mean danger does not lurk. The scandal and resignation of former National Security Adviser Flynn bears more than a few disturbing similarities to a scandal that, a decade ago, brought the Bush administration to its knees. I am referring, of course, to the Valerie Plame affair.

 

You Remember the Valerie Plame Affair

 

The Plame affair started innocently enough. The Central Intelligence Agency sent a former ambassador, Joseph Wilson, to Africa to investigate the possibility that Saddam Hussein sought yellowcake uranium to support an illicit nuclear program. According to Wilson, the CIA greenlighted the trip to answer a question Vice President Dick Cheney’s office had asked the CIA regarding Iraqi efforts to obtain uranium in Africa.

 

Wilson reported his findings to the government. He also took to the pages of The New York Times to discuss “What I Didn’t Find in Africa,” detailing how he had concluded that Hussein had not sought yellowcake from Africa. He also claimed intelligence had been “twisted” to “exaggerate” the threat of an Iraqi nuclear weapons program.

 

The Bush administration, unaware of who Wilson was or why the government had sent an administration critic like him on this mission, endeavored to find out. Reporter Bob Novak was also curious, and he learned that Wilson’s wife, Valerie Plame, worked at the CIA and had recommended her husband for the mission. Novak duly published his findings. Not long after, all hell broke loose.

 

Wild accusations immediately overtook the Bush administration. Wilson accused the administration of outing his wife as a CIA officer to retaliate for his article. Many people thought a White House staffer leaked Plame’s name to Novak. Wilson himself blamed Karl Rove, saying he wanted to see Rove “frog-marched” out of the White House “in handcuffs.”

 

MSNBC gleefully jumped onto the story—it was a staple of Keith Olbermann’s “Countdown” for years. Others suggested the Bush administration had violated the Espionage Act or other laws protecting CIA officers. Antiwar Democrats made Plame and Wilson antiwar heroes and martyrs.

 

Finally, the Bush administration buckled to external pressure and named a special prosecutor, Patrick Fitzgerald, to investigate who leaked Plame’s name. Fitzgerald learned that Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage had leaked Plame’s name to Novak. Despite this mystery, he continued investigating. Eventually, he brought one man to trial: Cheney’s chief of staff, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, for perjury.

 

The Trial Was Really Political Sabotage

 

Although the trial was for perjury, its purpose for the antiwar left was to put the Iraq War and entire Bush administration on trial. The trial intended to make the war and administration illegitimate and, essentially, wreck its ability to function.

 

That it did. The administration and press was consumed by Fitzgerald’s investigation. In fact, it is now known that Libby had argued for a surge much earlier in the Iraq War but was unable to push his position strongly because the Plame affair so badly consumed him. Libby was forced to resign as Cheney’s chief of staff in October 2005, and only at the end of 2006—after another year of bloodshed—did the United States implement the surge strategy Libby had advocated.

 

A 2007 Washington Post editorial noted a bipartisan Senate intelligence committee determined that nearly all of Wilson’s claims were false. The Post acknowledged there was no nefarious conspiracy to destroy the careers of Wilson and Plame. Worse, journalist Judith Miller stated in her 2015 book that Fitzgerald withheld evidence from her that led her to testify falsely. In effect, she recanted the testimony Fitzgerald used to win Libby’s conviction.

 

Nevertheless, the damage was done to the Bush administration’s ability to fight the Iraq War and take other policy actions, from reforming Social Security to eliminating the Syrian nuclear reactor at al-Kidar to dealing with Iran.

 

The Flynn Dox Might Be a Fishing Expedition

 

The matter that led to Flynn’s resignation has more than a whiff of déjà vu all over again. Once again, we have a high government official forced to resign not for his actions, but for supposed untruths he told about his actions after the fact. In this case, Flynn is supposed to have misled the FBI by stating he did not discuss sanctions during a call with the Russian ambassador to the United States in December 2016.

 

Supposedly transcripts of the call exist, though they have not been made public. Surely the transcripts are available to the FBI agents who interrogated Flynn. They could easily determine exactly what Flynn discussed with the Russian ambassador without needing to interrogate Flynn. Interrogating Flynn about a telephone call whose contents were already available to the FBI could serve only one purpose: to create a perjury trap for Flynn.

 

This has obvious similarities to what happened to Libby in the Plame matter. Even though the Plame special prosecutor knew the Plame leaker was Armitage, he continued to investigate and supposedly caught Libby in a perjury trap.

 

It was perfectly proper for Flynn, the incoming national security adviser, to speak with foreign countries’ ambassadors to the United States. That is what transitions are for. It is ludicrous to believe that an incoming administration can take no action and talk to no foreign representatives before noon on January 20. That is absurd, and I strongly doubt the Obama team met this standard. The point of a transition is to be able to hit the ground running and maintain continuity in government, including in relationships with foreign countries.

 

So what did Flynn in was not the fact of his call to the Russian ambassador, just as Libby was not done in by leaking Plame’s name (as he wasn’t the leaker). Both cases involved “a cover-up in search of a crime,” as columnist Charles Krauthammer has said.

 

Flynn Also Has Plausible Deniability

 

One can also easily imagine a scenario in which Flynn did not believe he had discussed the new Russia sanctions but, in a strict interpretation, one might believe he did. If during the call the Russian ambassador asked about the sanctions, and Flynn said “We are going to review the entire Russia policy, but I can’t discuss the sanctions or anything else specifically,” did Flynn discuss the sanctions?

 

Another similarity between the Plame and Flynn affairs is that the Democratic Party is deliberately muddying their meaning to inflate their significance. In the Plame case, the trial became a proxy for the entire Iraq War effort. Recall that many Democrats initially voted for the authorization to use force in Iraq and only turned against the war when the United States began suffering setbacks.

 

Democrats, led by their presidential candidates including John Kerry, justified turning against the war by claiming President Bush had lied them into supporting it. They proclaimed Libby’s perjury conviction as proof. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stated, “the [Libby trial] testimony unmistakably revealed—at the highest levels of the Bush administration—a callous disregard in handling sensitive national security information and a disposition to smear critics of the war in Iraq.”

 

The Democrats thus deliberately and strategically used a narrow perjury conviction to discredit the entire Bush Iraq policy and build a larger story of the nefarious, lying Bush administration—while conveniently eliminating their culpability for supporting the Iraq War.

 

Democrats are taking the same approach with Flynn’s call, blowing it up into evidence that the Russians and the Trump team somehow conspired to get Trump elected. The nub of the entire Flynn controversy is that Flynn talked to the Russian ambassador just as the Obama administration began taking action against Russia for its supposed meddling in the presidential election. That is, Democrats’ ginned-up, recently discovered concern about Russia is what underlies the entire Flynn matter.

 

The Obama administration only began taking a hard line on Russia in the last few weeks of its tenure, probably to help reinforce the notion that Russia somehow helped Trump win. Russia’s invasion of Crimea and eastern Ukraine and indiscriminate bombing and atrocious human rights violations in Syria led to no serious consequences from the United States. Only when the Democrats went looking for someone to blame the election loss on did Russia enter the crosshairs.

 

Democrats Are Being Vindictive Losers

 

Unable to win the election, the Democrats have resorted to lawfare to re-litigate the election and destroy the elected president. Democrats did not win at the ballot box and are determined to tie the winners in knots to prevent them from governing. By muddying the waters and conflating small incidents with their larger conspiracy theories, they hope Americans will assume that where there is a whole lot of smoke, there must be some fire, even if Democrats are manufacturing the smoke.

 

The Trump administration needs to understand the game Democrats are playing and rewrite the rules. First, it must not appoint a special prosecutor under any circumstances. In her book, Miller says Libby’s lawyer told her “Fitzgerald had twice offered to drop all charges against Libby if his client would ‘deliver’ [Vice President] Cheney to him.” The Trump administration cannot similarly allow a special prosecutor to run wild in search of a high-ranking scalp.

 

In addition, the congressional committees investigating the Flynn matter need to avoid getting drawn into a witch hunt for senior Trump officials. Republican leadership must maintain firm boundaries around any investigations and avoid the fishing expedition Democrats desperately desire. A fishing expedition will tie up enormous resources in document requests, interviews, and testimony, distracting from Republicans’ policy work. Such distractions would be a victory for the Left.

 

The investigating committees need to be very careful their investigation does not expand into any and all communications with and ties to Russia of anyone associated with the Trump campaign. The entire argument that the Russians “hacked” the election to affirmatively assist Trump is an edifice of innuendo. Congress must not add more bricks to it.

 

The investigating committees should also focus on the leakers of the information about Flynn’s call transcripts. These leaks are unacceptable and possibly criminal. They may also represent the presence of anti-Trump bureaucrats attempting to undermine the elected president. Unlike anything President Trump has done, this is a real threat to democracy and the will of the electorate.

 

Double Down, Trump Team

 

Second, the Trump administration needs to accelerate the pace of appointing officials to staff the government. Federal agencies have had weeks without political leadership as the Democrats have bogged down the confirmation process to an unprecedented degree. Democratic-leaning bureaucrats have had weeks to create all kinds of mischief, from inappropriate and potentially illegal leaking to organizing resistance at the Environmental Protection Agency and elsewhere. The agencies need adult supervision immediately.

 

Third, the Trump administration needs to change the subject. It got off to a good start by replacing Flynn with Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster. It now needs to move forward on its priorities: tax reform, budget cutting and seriousness about controlling the national debt, and Obamacare replacement. These three initiatives are likely to unleash as big an economic boom as we’ve seen in the twenty-first century. Bill Clinton proved people will tolerate a lot during good economic times.

 

That said, the Trump team should be aware that the Flynn resignation is a bad precedent, just as the Libby prosecution was. It’s a template for how to drive Left-displeasing officials from office. The Trump team will need to be vigilant against Democrats’ future deployment of lawfare to claim other scalps.

 

The Trump administration is off to a good start and is building momentum to pursue conservative wish-list items such as tax reform and Obamacare repeal. Democrats know this, and will do everything they can to derail these efforts. With Flynn, Democrats proved they are prepared to run the Plame play from their scorched-earth playbook. The Trump team needs to be prepared for next time to effectively defend against it.
