Why FISA-gate is Scarier Than Watergate
Tribune Content Agency, LLC, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/8/2018 5:49:25 PM

The Watergate scandal of 1972-74 was uncovered largely because of outraged Democratic politicians and a bulldog media. They both claimed that they had saved American democracy from the Nixon Administration’s attempt to warp the CIA and FBI to cover up an otherwise minor, though illegal, political break-in. (Snip) We are now in the midst of a third great modern scandal. Members of the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice sought court approval for the surveillance of Carter Page, allegedly for colluding with Russian interests, and extended the surveillance three times. But none of these government officials told the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that the

Another excellent read. They just keep coming.

I broke it down for Chris Clueless Wallace:

Nixon used Federal Agencies, including the DOJ and FBI, to COVER UP a Crime.

Obama used Federal Agencies, including the DOJ and FBI to COMMIT Crime(s).

As was Fast and Furious, as was a weaponized IRS, as was Obama´s past, as was law enforcement targeting, Black Panthers at Philly polling places, corrupt news media collusion and criminality on and on and on.

But yes, VDH, FISA-gate is very bad and some of us know that. Heads should roll, few if any will. Not enough to be sure.

The longer we sit here waiting for some of these criminals to be indicted, the scarier it gets. No one has been held accountable for any of the crimes we know have been committed. It´s beginning to look like no one ever will. That´s scary.

"Apparently, weaponizing government agencies to stop a detested Donald Trump by any means necessary is not really considered a crime."

And if they can take otherwise illegal actions because they hate Trump, why couldn´t we take such actions against a dem president? When law is applied based on personal whim, there is NO LAW.

There are a lot of good things that will come out of this. I believe Sesson is quietly working behind the scenes. If not, he will be replaced by someone like a Mick Mulvaney! The free press is dead. As Ben Stein so aptly stated, " they are a gang press doing the bidding of their lefty globalist billionaires." Comey and other will spend time behind bars. The corruption of the Clinton foundation and treasonous Uranium One deal could be her Waterloo. Mueller and even Obama could well be implicated. We sweep the house and the senate in November. What did I leave out?

This is how Richard Nixon "used" the FBI and CIA to cover up a crime.
The tape of his conversation with Haldeman went like this.
As they were going over a list of current issues for the day, Haldeman, Nixon´s assistant, said, ´we will just say the FBI and CIA are handling the matter, and it is classified."
Nixon said, OK.
Next item....and that was it.
What we are seeing with the Trump/Russian situation is a conspiracy unheard of in the United States. And Trump is not any part of the conspiracy. Thar one belongs to the FISA court, the FBI, the CIA, NSA, Hillary, Barack Obola, and a supporting cast of characters.

If you think FISA snooping is bad, think about what Alexa and that Echo are doing. Both collect everything you say in your home or car and transmits everything to their creators, who in turn, turns everything over to the goobermint. They´ll have everything about you.

Victor—the pretender to the Italian throne—and I go back a long way, more than sixty years. (Snip)Back then, nationalism was what counted. Nationalism and patriotism were one and the same.

How was this troubled young man NOT detained? And how is it the same agencies that failed so horribly to do their job are now, along with so many in the Establishment Media, declaring it is law-abiding citizens who must disarm? What follows is the FBI transcript of a phone call from a woman warning the FBI that Nikolas Cruz was going to explode. She details his fascination with ISIS, his prior explosive conflicts when a student, the ongoing threats he was making to others, and her fear he will return to a school and “just start shooting the place up.” If

After 9/11 the Swamp, which failed to warn us about 9/11, got Congress to a pass a laundry list of measures in the name of security. Among them was the federalization of state driver´s licenses. You had to dig out a birth certificate (and for most wives, a marriage certificate) to renew your driver´s license in West Virginia.

A harrowing social media post that reportedly came from the victim of the Dolphins’ bullying scandal caused his alma mater high school in California to shut down Friday. It appears that former Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin, who in 2013 accused teammates of bullying, posted a photo on his Instagram story of a shotgun on a bed with 18 shells sprawled out around it. The caption: “When you’re a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge.” ABC has since reported that Martin, 28, has been taken into custody. In the post, Martin mentions four people or groups, including current

First Lady Melania Trump stepped out of the White House on Friday wearing a military-inspired coat to greet Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and his wife, Lucy. Wearing one of her favorite designers, Mrs. Trump chose a crisp, black and gold Dolce & Gabbana merino-wool blend coat that features gold trim encircling her waist and lapel.

Flashy silk and gold-embroidered outfits, adorned with pointy red shoes fit for royalty, are acceptable garb for Bollywood performers. But apparently not if you are the telegenic prime minister of Canada on a trade trip to India. Justin Trudeau and his family have attracted some praise but no little ridicule during their eight day visit for wearing elaborate traditional clothing that some insist is more appropriate for a Maharajah and his court than a visiting leader. While admirers in the sprawling multicultural country lauded him for dressing “truly in the spirit of India,” the tut-tutting disapproval was far louder.

Stop calling “snowflakes” snowflakes. Stop misrepresenting the greatness of the latter with the god-awfulness of the former, whose ranks include students and citizens too precious to offend and too prone to taking offense at almost everything. One is the result of a natural sequence of events, the consequence of which is a heavy yet silent downpour of beauty. The other is a storm of protest—an avalanche of anarchy—against criticism, independence, judgment, common sense, and conviction. To conflate the two is to debase human nature by degrading the subjects of Mother Nature, including geometry, physics, chemistry, light, and life itself; because the

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel—the man whose agency failed to prevent the Parkland massacre despite having received a tip last November that Nikolas Cruz was plotting a mass shooting—has been accused of public corruption. Two years ago, the Sun Sentinel reported that Israel was rewarding top political supporters by giving them and their family members cushy jobs doing public relations and community outreach for the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. One such position, outreach manager, paid out a salary of $78,489. The person who got that job was the husband of Israel´s campaign manager. Israel had been a Republican but ran

John Kasich’s inner circle is gearing up for a possible presidential run in 2020 — actively weighing the prospect of a Republican primary challenge to President Donald Trump against the feasibility of a long-shot general election campaign as an independent. And there’s one consideration driving their thinking perhaps more than any other: what some of his advisers consider the very real, maybe even likely, possibility that Trump doesn’t run again — by choice or not — or that the president becomes so politically hobbled by late next year that the political landscape fundamentally shifts in Kasich’s favor. That’s one reason

A Harvard law grad argued Thursday that armed teachers would shoot black students. Elie Mystal, who graduated and practiced law with a Harvard University law degree, made the case for why armed teachers would shoot black students, reported The College Fix. He published the argument on Above the Law, a law blog he edits. Mystal argued that arming teachers would be pricey, not dissuade potential shooters, and “directly result in students of color being shot to death at school.” “I know that because the only other group of public employees that is armed at the behest of the state shoots

A discussion among students at Oberlin High School in Oberlin, La., about a mathematical symbol led to a police investigation and a search of one of the student’s homes, according to the Allen Parish Sheriff’s Office. On the afternoon of Feb. 20, detectives investigated a report of terroristic threats at the school, where they learned that a student had been completing a math problem that required drawing the square-root sign. Students in the group began commenting that the symbol, which represents a number that when multiplied by itself equals another number, looked like a gun.

A report released Friday claims four of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel’s deputies waited outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while the attack was occurring. On February 22 Breitbart News reported that one deputy resigned after it was learned that he was on scene but failed to control Nikolas Cruz. Sheriff Israel told ABC 13 that video shows the deputy, Scott Peterson, “arrive at the west side of Building 12” and “take a position” outside the school — but never go inside. The sheriff’s office moved to suspend Peterson, who resigned before the suspension could take place. Now CNN reports

The way Rush Limbaugh sees it, CNN has become so consumed by hatred of President Donald Trump that everyone at the network has full-on descended into madness. The conservative radio host began his Friday show by applauding Trump’s CPAC speech and saying once again that CNN’s town hall on the Parkland shooting was nothing but terrible, nasty, anti-gun mind control. After that, he turned his attention to a CNN piece published Thursday titled “Trump’s language on school shooter’s mental health could be harmful, experts say,” which asserts that Trump and NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch are not helping discussions about mental

This strikes me as really pushing for any excuse to attack Trump for any reason whatsoever.
