Report: Obama's Spying On The
Press Was Far More Extensive
Than Previously Thought

Original Article

President Trump might be openly hostile to the mainstream media, but it was the Obama administration that was engaged in a widespread effort to thwart the media. Which do you think is more harmful to a free press? The full extent of Obama’s actions against the press are only now coming to light. The Columbia Journalism Review reports on a newly released government document showing that the Obama Justice Department engaged in a far more sweeping effort to spy on the Associated Press than previously believed.

Still, the jugheaded juggernauts of journalism loved Obama and he loved those who plastered pictures of him and the wookie on the front pages with gushing stories of their greatness. Listening to a PBS interview yesterday of leftist reporters show that their love for the kenyan is still alive and their all-consuming hatred for Donald Trump is just as strong.

"So why has the press saved all its ire for Trump, ... One can only speculate." Hmm. Massive liberal bias. Massive bruised egos because Trump will not bow to media. Diminished moral superiority because Trump is actually helping minorities and lower economic classes by providing jobs and wage increases while the Left failed to do so. Massive CYA as media lies and plots are exposed. Massive career damage because Trump spotlights the fools and their idiotic statements. Hatred that Trump has succeeded when they all screamed that the country's economy would collapse if he was elected. Fury that they have not been able to entrap him and force him out of office. Fear that their hero, BO, is about to be exposed for criminally misusing the FISA system to spy on BO's political enemies. Terror that the whole Leftist cabal is about to go off a cliff.

Jessie Watters should do a segment where he asks people in public what they think of the current administration doing this-then correct himself and reveal that it was actually Obama. Liberals are fun to watch when they're confronted with a truthbomb.

Committed leftists/Communists, which is all the The Zero chose for his evil minions, have no conscience, zero ethics and cannot be embarrassed, cannot be shamed. The ONLY thing that keeps them from breaking ALL laws is the threat of long prison terms. This is precisely why we absolutely HAVE TO put at least 2 dozen, maybe 3 or 4 dozen of the top people in prison for a decade or two each. If this is sweep under the rug, or exposed with some sort of an amnesty, we will have permanently transitioned to having FBI, DoJ, CIA and Dept of State top folks function like the KGB and Gestapo. Our only chance for recovery is LOTS of evil minions in prison for a long time.

Nancy Pelosi is between impeach and a hard place. “You want to believe that there’s all this unease in our caucus,” an irritated House Speaker told the press on Thursday, a day when the barbs were flying between herself and President Trump, and when many House Democrats expressed impatience or even dissatisfaction with her leadership to her face. “That simply isn’t the truth

When President Bill Clinton, over 20 years ago, was probed by a special investigator, and 11 possible grounds for impeachment were found, including perjury, witness tampering and obstruction of justice, Democrats didn’t defend their party’s President the way Republicans defend Trump today. No, Democrats were far more extreme. What makes the rhetorical record so glaringly hypocritical is that in Donald Trump’s case, unlike Clinton’s, the investigator found no evidence of presidential crimes.

Is the U.S. government under the control of a shadowy group of insiders, unseen by the public and unaccountable to voters? A newly published report suggests the answer is “yes.” But lay aside the elaborate conspiracy theories about Russian infiltration. This insidious threat is far more mundane, stemming from bureaucrats who have hijacked the regulatory process to evade accountability for their actions. It’s time for Congress and President Trump to push back against federal agency rule-makers who are overstepping their authority.

‘These are prosperous times in America.” If that sounds like pro-Trump propaganda, that’s because it’s rarely uttered by anyone who isn’t already a supporter of the current president. But that’s how National Public Radio, to its credit, began a story about the incredible jobs boom underway right now in a segment called “America Is In Full Employment, So Why Aren’t We Celebrating?” “Why doesn’t today’s full employment come with effervescence?” reporters Pallavi Gogoi and Scott Horsley ask.

Someone should remind Grand Rapids, Michigan’s Congressman Justin Amash of this – and maybe his voters. In a series of tweets on Saturday, Amash declared that “Contrary to Barr’s portrayal, Mueller’s report reveals that President Trump engaged in specific actions and a pattern of behavior that meet the threshold for impeachment.”

The threat to the free world if we get seduced into fully equipping our infrastructures with cheap Chinese advanced communications technology is of the gravest nature. “Victorious warriors win first and then go to war,” Chinese general and military strategist Sun Tzu declared in The Art of War, some 500 years before Christ. Using 21st-century terminology last week in London, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo described much the same thing, warning that Beijing is seeking “to divide Western alliances through bits and bytes, not bullets and bombs.”

On Thursday, Nancy Pelosi slammed President Trump for proposing immigration reforms that would shift the country toward a more merit-based system. “I want to just say something about the word that they use, ‘merit.’ It is really a condescending word,” she said at her press briefing. “Are they saying most of the people that come to the United States in the history of our country are without merit because they don’t have an engineering degree,” she scoffed, dismissing the president’s idea as “non-merit — it means merit in the eyes of Donald Trump.”

The Unirule Institute of Economics in Beijing, called “China’s most prominent free-market think tank” by Bloomberg News, is a target of harassment from the Chinese government. Its economists are considered dissidents by President Xi Jinping’s regime. The story reminds us of the treatment the Obama WhiteHouse gave to Tea Party groups that dared challenge the administration. In today’s China, after a period of liberalization, free-market economists are considered a threat to the ruling authority. Unirule’s offices have been invaded by government officials, who told the group it was

Now that the smoke from the always-dubious Trump-Russia investigation has cleared, the real scandal is finally coming into focus. Namely, the one where the Obama administration, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and various top law enforcement officials apparently worked together to spy on the campaign of their political opponent. A scandal with far more credible evidence to back it up than the phony Russia collusion story. On Monday, news broke that Attorney General William Barr had appointed John Durham, the top federal prosecutor in Connecticut, to investigate the FBI’s use of the Clinton-campaign-financed “dossier”

What? You don’t know what MySpace is? Just 12 years ago, it was considered a giant, unstoppable social media monopoly that required government intervention to protect consumers. That year, in fact, Victor Keegan wrote a column in the Guardian newspaper with this headline “Will MySpace ever lose its monopoly?” In it, he says that “as the MySpace generation goes into employment, (it) could eventually extend (Rupert) Murdoch’s influence in ways that would make his grip on satellite television seem parochial.” Around the same time, John Barrett, writing in Tech News World, declared that “MySpace Is a Natural Monopoly. “

We ate lunch at a Chick-fil-A today. When we entered the restaurant, the first thing we saw was an empty table that was set up to honor fallen military personnel over the Memorial Day weekend. There was a red rose, a folded flag, an inverted glass and an open Bible, along with text explaining the elements of the display. Click to enlarge:(Snip for photo) Chick-fil-A is unabashedly pro-American. I suspect that is the real reason for the animus that so many liberals bear against the company.

As Memorial Day weekend wore on, by Sunday morning Chicago police had responded to the shootings of 21 people, three of whom died from their injuries, officials said. The grim tally was only expected to increase as a shooting Sunday about 6 a.m. in the 1300 block of South Throop Street in Englewood is said to have left two dead and two injured. The shooting was possibly in retaliation for an earlier one in the same neighborhood on West Hastings Street, which also left a man dead, investigators said.

Every Memorial Day, hundreds of thousands of motorcycles rumble through Washington, D.C., to honor veterans and prisoners of war. They call themselves Rolling Thunder, and this Sunday will be their 32nd ride. It will also be their last. “We thought about it and thought about it. It’s a shame that we’re stopping it. I’m sad in a way, but in another way I’m glad,” said Sgt. Artie Muller, who served in the 4th U.S. Infantry Division in Vietnam. Muller co-founded Rolling Thunder Inc., the nonprofit that organizes the ride, in 1987, and currently serves as its executive director. Rolling Thunder attracts a patriotic, leather-loving crowd to Washington.
