Obama Wanted To Know Everything
His Trump Spies Were Doing,
And It Looks Like He Did

Original Article

When it comes to the unlawful surveillance on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the most important question is, what did President Obama know and when did he know it? If we are to believe the testimony in the Justice Department inspector general’s report on FISA abuse, Obama didn’t know anything about the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Neither did his attorney general, her deputy, or anyone in the White House. At least not that they can recall – an expression used over 200 times in the report. Yet against this we have the Sept. 2, 2016, text message from Lisa Page to her paramour Peter Strzok saying “POTUS wants to know everything we are doing.”

Loretta Lynch, Hunter Biden and the Whistleblower have one thing in common - apparently, none of them can be found for comment on anything.

As one WSJ commenter put it economically: fool or knave? More expansively, the media created their race golem and imbued him with all sorts of magical powers. No Drama Obama was on top of things. Meetings, intelligence, military, economics, etc. He was supposedly a tireless polymath. It's now clear that the anti-Trump operation was all-encompassing at the highest levels of elected and appointed government including law enforcement and intelligence agencies that had a thousand other more pressing issues. There are only so many hours in a day, even for a president, and especially for a president whose official workday was, shall we say, rather brief. What was he doing in those other hours besides many rounds of golf and flitting around the nation burning oceans of jet fuel at fundraisers? The answer is inescapable, really: he was subverting democracy with as much cynicism and hatred as he could muster. The Obama adulators must weigh the now-documented facts, events, chronology and 'coincidences' against Obama's rather weak and nonspecific claims that he wasn't involved and wasn't informed. An egomaniac like Obama would be shouting from the rooftops if he were truly innocent - post-presidential protocol be darned. But he knows that legal jeopardy is still a possibility and that the worst-case scenario is to be caught in a lie or in a prisoner's dilemma. Clapper, Brennan, Comey and others are amoral snakes. Only a fool would trust them to keep up the con. I do hope it's costing Obama plenty of sleepless nights.

Chris Farrell is most likely correct about Obama involvement, but he lacks hard evidence. With all the amnesia (can not recall) answers, there is a long way to go to get indictments. If all of this is true Obama and the people he appointed acted far worse than Richard Nixon and the "plumbers."

"True to form, the IG report goes to great lengths to argue that “knowing everything” in fact meant knowing nothing at all." This is like a guy off the street going up to one of a bunch of bank robbers and asking who was involved in the robbery. They will tell you nothing. When a policeman, authorized to arrest them and with proof they were involved, starts asking questions, they may become more talkative when it is suggested if they are cooperative it will be mentioned in their sentencing. Dunham and Barr are the cops with the authority to arrest and charge. The IG is a joke. The whole IG overview process is a joke about the bureaucratic process; not filling out forms and failing to follow procedure. Effectively, unless The Attorney General assign a prosecutor like Dunham, NO ONE is effectively monitoring the bureaucrats. We have seen the bureaucrats are OUT OF CONTROL to the point of being very dangerous. We NEED an internal oversight with teeth. We need a LAW to be the teeth, with criminal accountability and secondarily, rights to fire offenders not found criminally liable. We also need training that educates bureaucrats as to their chain of command, with the President at the top of the chain bound by established law. The bureaucrats job is do their assigned tasks and provide information, not be the top boss no matter how big their egos are. Meanwhile, from assorted bits of testimony, it is clear that BO and his top people KNEW what was going on despite denials. "there is an investigation that would take you inside a presidential campaign and four people who were targeted within that campaign and that doesn’t require some kind of supervisory review and initiation" It also was the hottest political thing that was going on and bureaucrats like these are drawn to such things like moths to flames. Some might have stayed away, perceiving the danger, but they knew. They didn't "skip" the supervisory review, they deliberately short circuited it. It would have upset their plans. For example, the Gang of Eight was not briefed. Plus it is clear that people like Brennan were running around making clandestine contacts with people and feeding them information. He showed up in person so as not to leave a trail, just like the spy master he is, but he left a lot of slime behind. It is already clear that Dunham has made deeper and clearly criminal connections between some of the players. They conspired to do these things. Will BO be connected? I suspect that, unfortunately, a clear trail will not be established. However, it will be clear that BO's "scandal free" administration, the one that Biden brags about being part of, was involved in one of the biggest and most dangerous scandals ever.

I'm not worried about 'getting' Obama or Hillary Clinton at least not yet. I want to see the nucleus of the cabal go first Clapper, Brennan, Comey, Strokz, Page, Ohr et al then when pinched they'll sing about their 'boss'.

Obie doesn't have much to worry about. The left and the msm would howl up a storm if the first black former president was to be indicted and charged with a high crime. And any testimony he would give would be so watered down that federal prosecutors would question if we are talking to the right guy. But, one thing is for sure. Having Obie show up in court as a person of interest together with the mere hint that he committed criminal acts would fire up our base and get the couch potatoes out to vote next November. Another thing is for sure - despite Obie's attempts to confuse and water down his words, his testimony would ensure that Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Strzok, Page, and McCabe go to prison for a long long time. But, what to do with Billary.

Speaking of high crimes and misdemeanours - when Lightbringers approve of highly illegal spying, isn't that still impeachable? Let's ask his co-conspirators in the "media" what their objective analysis of this situation is. The entire Left could now be impeached - the evidence is so damning and so conclusive the trial wouldn't have to take more than 10 minutes.

We've had corrupt administrations in our history, but I think Obama will hold the title for most corrupt. Interestingly, the vast majority of corrupt administrations have been democrat. Of course, congress has always been corrupt, in it's non-term limited quest for money and power.

I can't speak for Obama but he probably doesn't care. His whole mantra of "share the wealth" was created so he could cash in on the wealth. Barack and Michelle Obama have done just that and are now running around giving people advice. It is too bad that a segment of society is still listening to them. Not me. I take my advice from God.

When it comes to connecting former President Barack Obama to anything got to do with the so-called Crossfire Hurricane FBI Investigation, the investigations will have to breach the plausible deniability conspiracy set up between Obama’s high level mucky muck cohorts and political operatives who were in the White House at the time. That’s why the (cover Obama’s butt) memoranda written by Obama’s national security advisor on the day that the Obama Administration was leaving the White House said that Obama wanted everything done “by the book” when it came to investigating President Trump. So of course when the DOJ/IG Investigation was being conducted nobody in the high levels of the DOJ/FBI super bureaucracy are never going to fess up to what Obama knew or when Obama knew it, and they sure would not put those obvious facts on any official documents. When such an IG Report is completed that report can only take into consideration what the DOJ/FBI super bureaucrats told the IG investigators and the documentary evidence that they found in the official DOJ records. The IG then puts all that together in his Report. Beyond that the IG report completely disregards and ignores common sense. Look at it this way. High level super bureaucrats in the federal government, and especially in the intelligence and law enforcement agencies, who direct adverse criminal investigations and counterintelligence investigation are experts in covering their butts through plausible deniability. In that respect those super bureaucrats are not about to to put their high level positions, their personal qualifications, and reputations, at risk, without first knowing that they would be covered by “insurance” including plausible deniability, especially when conducting activities involving the spying on a Republican Presidential candidate or President-Elect, or a presidential political campaign. In that case that “insurance” could only come from the highest level at the Obama leftist and liberal Democrat White House that was being run in accordance with “Chicago Way” political corruption. That’s just common sense.

Spying in your own country without a crime to cite and lying about it is not illegal when you are King of The World. Being the control freaks that they were, Barry, Valerie and the rest of the Black Muslim Mafia would have known every detail of Crossfire Hurricane. Barry told us what kind of cars to drive and what fuel to use and how we could heat our homes. His lovely spouse told second graders what they could eat in their school lunches. Valerie Jarrett, the pseudo mom that Barry adored would have had to know in her role as "senior advisor" so she could guide her little boy in the right direction. President Zero is going to look good in orange.

Blame former AG Sessions and his boss for allowing the massive Obama scandals to be hidden from public view for 3 years and to be spun by Obama and his media bootlicks as “scandal free”. For it was Jeff Sessions who declined to prosecute Lois Lerner for her illegal IRS attacks on the Tea Party. If Lerner had been prosecuted she might have disclosed who in the Obama WH she was coordinating her unauthorized delaying actions on Tea Party applications, instead, meek Jeff allowed a smirking Lois and an associate to walk away with rich pensions. Same Sessions malfeasance was seen in not pursui)g Obama’s gun running, his numerous Solyndra green scandals and the bogus black farmers scandal, to name just 3 more Obama directed corruptions. Also blame Sessions for his Day One Recusal from the Obama and Hillary illegat actions. Sessions use of a scandal blindfold put the signer of the 4th perjurious FISA warrant, Rod Rosenstein, in charge of the DoJ. It was Rosenstein who pressed for Mueller’s appointment as SC and it was Rosenstein who gave Mueller his stunningly narrow directions on the 2016 election. Just investigate Trump and not the reason why Obama and Comey decided to spy on candidate and then President Trump. Sessions’ enormous failure, either intentional or by stupidity, is what opened to door to the impeachment of a president for the obvious corrupt acts of Obama and Biden. May AG Barr not pull a Sessions in 2020.

Obama you may recall always fancied himself the smartest person in the room. Unfortunately, this intellectual disease seems to infect all Presidents! Hey ---I won over great odds (only 44 more like me 225 years) so I must be really, really smart. It only follows that not only did Obama know what was going on but he helped where he could by greasing the skids, removing obstacles, cutting red tape, making suggestions, etc. And ValJar is in it up to her filthy neck. I'd love to see them truly humiliated.

Didn't we hear that it will be the most ethical administration in history? Or was that from some other democrat, can't remember? Many roads paths and trails lead to their end. I am sure at some point after all investigations are concluded there will be the smoking gun and evidence Obozo gave the orders that launched the whole operation. Someone in the operation will turn states evidence and spill their guts. At which point I wouldn't be surprised if they had a midnight snack with Vince Foster and Jeffrey Epstein.

Um, #14, no. The Constitution limits the penalty for impeachment to removal from office and disqualification for future office. If O was involved, the only way he can be punished now is by a civil or criminal court penalty. A nice lawsuit perhaps—there’s some nice real estate on the Vineyard that could be seized—and the standard in civil court is preponderance of evidence.

FBI spying is a far bigger scandal

Of the two biggest news stories this year, only one of them is truly a scandal, and it’s not the one that's led to the ridiculously partisan impeachment. No, the big scandal is that our most important and powerful law enforcement agency, the FBI, engaged in an unwarranted spy operation against a major party's presidential campaign. That story is only just now being told, thanks to U.S. Attorney General William Barr having called for multiple investigations into the matter. It’s a scandal of epic proportions, and yet New York Times columnist Bret Stephens, who insists he’s a conservative living in the real world, thinks it’s only on the same scale

In San Francisco’s trendy Marina District, a homeless man walks into the local Safeway, grabs a bulk package of toilet paper, rips out a roll, lowers his pants, squats, and defecates in the aisle. The act is both symptomatic and emblematic of the homeless problem in San Francisco, and it takes place just over a mile from the walled mansion of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. The San Francisco poop index is what social psychologists might call an unobtrusive measure of a growing problem. In 2011, San Francisco recorded some 5,500 poop incidents.

Lawyers close to President Donald Trump are exploring whether House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to temporarily withhold articles of impeachment from the Senate could mean that the president hasn’t actually been impeached. The case is a rhetorical one following Wednesday night’s vote to impeach the president on two articles. The U.S. Constitution grants the House of Representatives full authority over impeachment. But the argument is part of an effort by the White House and Senate Republicans to maximize their leverage as lawmakers debate when and how to conduct a trial on charges that the president abused his power to solicit an investigation into political rival Joe Biden,

Twenty-four hours after President Trump was impeached, the Democratic candidates held a debate that almost didn’t happen and that even some insiders were hoping would not happen. To say that the debate, having overcome a labor dispute at Loyola Marymount University, was overshadowed by the impeachment furor would be the understatement of the year. For the last several debates, the pundits have forecast that the candidates would beat up on the perceived front-runner. But once again, few punches were thrown, perhaps because the four leading candidates all believe they could win Iowa or New Hampshire and don’t want to take any risks.

The House has voted to impeach President Trump. The historical significance of this event lies mainly in the fact that, until now, no president has been impeached without some allegation in an article of impeachment that he committed a crime. This was also the first impeachment proceeding that had no support in the House from a single member of the president’s party. Legal scholars disagree as to whether impeachment requires a crime. However, the Constitution provides that impeachment of a president is to be for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors.” I find it hard to read this language as permitting impeachment

The Democratic primary has had much hue and cry over Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders of late. Yet the front-runner continues to be former Vice President Joe Biden, and there is little sign as yet that he is going to lose his lead, despite his fumbling campaign. The Democrats are sleepwalking into a disaster. Biden has so far run a lackluster at best campaign.

The plan would “support the first responders, healthcare workers, social workers, and other public and private employees who respond to climate-induced disasters,” by committing to “investments in retraining, joint labor management apprenticeships, and creating strong career pipelines to ensure a continuous supply of skilled, available workers.”

The sixth Democratic presidential debate took place Thursday night in Los Angeles, one of several California cities with out-of-control homeless problems. California Governor Gavin Newsom, who has called the state's growing homeless crisis a "national emergency," watched from the audience at Loyola Marymount University. After the debate, a reporter asked the governor why is was President Trump's responsibility to take care of the housing crisis that California has itself created. "Well, he's president of the United States," Newsom said, "and I imagine he cares about people of the United States, and he cares about the largest state in the United States of America.

The Seattle Times has issued a new style guideline instructing staff to capitalize the word “Black” when referring to a culture, ethnicity or group of people, the newspaper announced Thursday evening. The word “white,” however, will remain lowercase when referring to people with “light-colored skin, especially those of European descent,” the newspaper said. The publication explained that capitalizing the term “Black” is necessary because it is a reflection of shared cultures and experiences, like foods, languages and music.” The word “white” however will remain lowercase because it merely refers to the physical description of people “whose backgrounds may spring from many different cultures,”

The White House on Wednesday dispatched some staffers to head up the Capitol. They brought with them beautiful cards with hand-drawn calligraphy on them. They looked like Christmas cards. But inside the envelopes addressed to lawmakers were copies of President Trump’s brutal letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

A transgender former Nike contractor is seeking $1.1 million in damages from the sporting goods giant for allegedly allowing gender identity-based harassment. According to a civil lawsuit filed this week, Nike and Mainz Brady Group, a staffing firm that hired workers for Nike, discriminated against computer engineer Jazz Lyles, who identifies as transmasculine and prefers the pronouns they/them/their. The complaint was filed with Multnomah Circuit Court in Oregon. During Lyles' tenure at Nike — from May 2017 to September 2018 — the engineer was repeatedly "misgendered" by coworkers, the complaint said. While Lyles notified management about the issue multiple times

I was frankly shocked by Tucker Carson’s courage last night; he’s not going to be getting a lot of cocktail party invitations from the cream of the beltway conservative establishment anymore. If you missed Carlson’s epic denunciation of the big DC establishment think tanks – the likes of the Heritage Foundation, American Enterprise Institute and Competitive Enterprise Institute -- do yourself a favor and spend the next six-and-a-half minutes watching the video embedded below. He points out that Google, Facebook, Twitter and the others are all enjoying special legal protection that enables them to get away with censoring conservatives, and that the biggest and richest conservative think tanks support
Trump Lawyers Ask If Pelosi Delay
Means He Isn’t Impeached Yet

Lawyers close to President Donald Trump are exploring whether House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to temporarily withhold articles of impeachment from the Senate could mean that the president hasn’t actually been impeached. The case is a rhetorical one following Wednesday night’s vote to impeach the president on two articles. The U.S. Constitution grants the House of Representatives full authority over impeachment. But the argument is part of an effort by the White House and Senate Republicans to maximize their leverage as lawmakers debate when and how to conduct a trial on charges that the president abused his power to solicit an investigation into political rival Joe Biden,

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was unable to provide a sound argument in favor of the impeachment of President Trump during the Democrat debate on Thursday, reverting to vague talking points and calling the president a “pathological liar.” Moderators kicked off the event by asking candidates how they can persuade more Americans to support the impeachment of the president. “To the candidates — last night, at this hour, the House of Representatives voted for only the third time in American history to impeach a president,” PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff said.

Amid all the impeachment hysteria and sleight of hand, here is your guide to what actually happened in Congress this week. First and foremost, President Trump did not get impeached Wednesday night. And he still hasn’t at the moment of this writing, more than 12 hours after House Democrats approved two articles of impeachment in the most nakedly partisan impeachment vote in over a century and a half. The giant, block-lettered, wartime headlines in the New York Times giddily declaring “TRUMP IMPEACHED” is completely false. Fake News, you might say.

During Friday’s “New Day” on CNN, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) discussed a new CNN poll that shows the United States economy’s highest rating in almost 20 years. Booker said the economy is “overall good” but Americans are “not measuring their well-being” based on the GDP or stock market.“Right now, all Americans know that we’re doing nothing on health care costs, prescription drug costs,” Booker told host John Berman. “We know that we have a tax system that’s way, weighted in the hands of the wealthiest
