Remember my rule: you’ll only really start to get Obama when you start assuming the absolute worst about everything he says or does. Assume good intentions on his part, and you’ll be scratching your head over things from now on.
The abuse of presidential power by Barack Obama and his minions is Watergate on Steroids.
In the past month, we have learned:
- The Obama administration openly shared classified information with political appointees about Donald Trump in the summer of 2015, and likely earlier. The citation.
- Obama’s attorney general sought warrants to spy on President Trump’s campaign team last June, and was denied last June by a federal judge. The citation.
- Obama’s attorney general sought warrants to spy on a server at Trump Tower last October and was granted one by a federal judge. Ibid.
- The Obama administration spied on President Trump’s transition team. The citation.
This information alone — supported by mass media news reports — is enough to warrant a criminal investigation by the Department of Justice, as well as a civil rights investigation into Barack Obama’s possible violation of Donald Trump’s right to seek the presidency.
“The citation” in the above list refers to the supporting links Don provides, which I didn’t transcribe. He goes on to reference this AmThink post by the esteemed Clarice Feldman, who sums things up quite pithily:
There’s so much in print and online about the House and Senate intelligence committees and Russian “collusion” with Trump that I can’t blame people with real lives to lead who just throw their hands up and garden or go hiking. Some will assume there’s got to be a pony in there somewhere, as Ronald Reagan used to joke about the kid digging through manure. I think there is, but it isn’t that Russia corrupted the 2016 election, it’s that Obama and his closest aides, including some at the highest level in the intelligence community, illegally intercepted one or more Republican candidates’ communications before the election, circulated them widely to their cohorts and then tried to use this information to defeat and later to hamstring Trump when Hillary — to their surprise — lost the election.
I also suspect that the attacks on Flynn have nothing to do with his Russian contacts which he disclosed, but, rather, to misdeeds respecting the Middle East, particularly Iran, the country he observed as Obama’s head of the DIA.
Perhaps the easiest thing to do is to just consider everything the Democrats say, directly or through the media, which just prints as truth handouts from the same Democratic sources, as a lie.
Annnnd bingo. If there ever was a good reason to do otherwise, I can’t think of it right now. Over to Limbaugh for the ugly denouement:
Every year until the last two years the Democrats loved the Russians, and they loved the Soviet Union, and they loved the KGB, and they loved the instruments of authoritarian power wherever they found it around the world.
Now they hate the Russians. I don’t believe that. I don’t believe they’ve actually turned into us on the Russians. Do you? We’re supposed to sit here and believe that they have become anti-communist, anti-authoritarian, anti-Russian, after decades and decades of being pro all of that? When Julian Assange first surfaced and began leaking the Edward Snowden stuff, they loved Assange and they loved Snowden because he was betraying authoritarian governments, although there was Obama. Now they’re embracing all these people that they used to despise and dislike.
This whole story is causing them to do 180-degree shifts of loyalty. And that’s what I mean by discombobulated, because the sole focus they have been consumed with — they’re a big hate group now, and they’ve been consumed with their hatred for Trump, consumed with their hatred for the American people who voted for Trump, consumed with their hatred for open elections, consumed by their hatred of the fact they can’t get rid of Trump.
(Break transcript, new link—M) The Russians! They used to be in bed with the Russians and with the Soviet Union. Now they’re turning…In other words, this scandal — and Donald Trump — is forcing the left and the Democrat Party to turn itself inside out. They are so discombobulated that they are abandoning lifelong allies and embracing lifelong enemies because the only objective here is to get rid of Trump, and I think at this stage… I say this as a bit of an exaggeration, but I don’t think they even know specifically why Trump has to be gotten away, other than he won the election. But when you…It’s gotten so far out of control that they can’t even tell you why now.
So it turns out there was a government interfering in the presidential election. It was ours. It was the United States government, at the time being run by Barack Hussein O and his minions.
Anything, anything at all, to hang onto power; their lust for it, their sense of absolute entitlement to it, couldn’t be more obvious now. Their megalomania is the only “principle” they have left. They were so close—sooooo close!—to having us all under their thumbs completely, to subjugating us to the Progressivist program forever. They believed that with the grand success of their Long March through the institutions (most especially their control of the government schools) there would simply be no turning back.
Throw in the government takeover of the health-care system—as I’ve long called it, the Progressivist brass ring, their ultimate achievement in their quest for absolute power—and no one could blame them for thinking they really were home free at last, securely in the driver’s seat for good, to mix a couple of metaphors there.
Sadly for them it turns out that, as faint and forlorn a hope as we really have for restoring the Constitutional Republic, real Americans aren’t quite ready to accept the bit quite yet. To their stunned amazement and spluttering outrage, there was still enough fight left in those of us who live outside their urban redoubts to toss a largish spanner into their nefarious works in the person of one Donald J Trump.
And now they’ve gone completely bug-fuck nuts over it—even as small a setback as that was enough to push them over the edge into certifiable public madness. The beautiful irony here is, though, that the more they froth and shriek, the more they flail and fail and whine and obstruct, the more of us see them for what they truly are, and always were. The mask of reasonableness and sanity is being ripped away now not by those of us who have an interest in exposing them, but by their very own words and deeds. I’m not sure whether they don’t realize it, or are just incapable of stopping themselves. Either way, it’s hilarious to watch.
Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of assholes, if you ask me.
