Cockroach Coup-UPDATE: Mueller and his team of swell Hillary donors almost have to indict someone now, just to cover-up Obama's criminal wiretapping on behalf of the Clinton campaign. The FBI had investigations of both campaigns; one to bury Hillary's crimes and one to invent Trump's.
BTW, I'm no fan of Manafort's work for Putin stooges in the Ukraine. But whatever he did pales into nothingness compared to what the Podestas, the Clintons and Obama did for Putin: business partners in Joule Energy, lobbying for SberBank sanctions relief, transferring hi-tech dual-use technology at Skolkovo, selling 20% of America's uranium supply, letting Russia establish military bases in the Middle East for the first time in a half-century while barrel-bombing civilians. Not to mention letting Putin take over the White House's computers with impunity. That's because Obama needed Russia's help with the Iran Surrender.
Hey, I know; let's investigate what happened in June, 2016! :
On an unknown date in June, the FISA court turns down a request for the first time in many years, a request to wiretap the Trumps. Despite the judge's unprecedented ruling, Lynch wiretapped the Trumps anyway.
On June 3, Rob Goldstone emails Trump, Jr., using words that seem designed to justify a FISA warrant. A meeting is set up with the lawyer Veselnitskaya, who had been personally granted a special visa parole by Lynch. It would have been rude not to talk to her after all the trouble Lynch took to send her over to Trump Tower.
On June 9, the meeting takes place, but there is no opposition research presented as promised, only Magnitsky Act issues.
On June 14, Veselnitskaya appears at the Congressional Hearing with Obama's Russian ambassador.
On June 20, the Hillary/Comey/Steele Dossier alleges whatever Hillary twisted hallucinations dreamed-up
And on June 27, Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch hold their Tarmac Summit, even though his alleged wife is "allegedly" under the alleged Lynch/Comey pretend-investigation. But, hey, sometimes you just don't want to discuss wiretapping the opposing political campaign on the phone.
Somebody might be listening.
Whaddaya know? Trump was right. Again.
Don Surber: "The media's wiretap dancing": "A Democratic president spied on a Republican presidential candidate’s campaign using a law a Democratic Congress passed and a Democratic president signed 38 years earlier in the name of preventing Watergate-style abuses.
The Obama administration monitored the political opposition’s private conversations, and then passed along transcripts of those conversations to administration-friendly journalists. This not only was an abuse of presidential power, but also an abuse of the power of the press.
Call it wiretapping or intercepting, the press knew perfectly well the Obama administration spied on political opponents, because the Obama administration shared these goodies with the press. Witness the Inauguration Day story in the Times, which used the word “wiretapped” in its front-page headline.
Far from being a member of a free press, the Times acted as a propaganda tool for a past regime waging a campaign to discredit its successor. Other news organizations followed the lead of the Times.
The press had no evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia, but promoted a steady stream of Fake News about Russia. The Fake News media was determined to bring down a duly elected president.
Meanwhile, evidence of electoral eavesdropping by Democrats abounded. Yet the press ignored this actual political scandal, because even after Obama left the White House a Fake News media was reluctant to cast him in a bad light.
The next few weeks should be interesting."
"Either the investigation gets results. Or its perpetrators are left hanging in the wind. If McMaster is fired, which on purely statistical grounds he probably will be, and a Trump loyalist who wasn’t targeted by the surveillance operation becomes the next National Security Adviser and brings in Trump loyalists, as Flynn tried to do, then it’s over.
And the Dems finally get their Watergate. Except the star won’t be Trump, it will be Obama. Rice, Power, Lynch and the rest of the gang will be the new Haldeman, Ehrlichman and Mitchell.
Once Obama and his allies launched their domestic surveillance operation, they crossed the Rubicon. And there was no way back. They had to destroy President Trump or risk going to jail.
The more crimes they committed by spying on the opposition, the more urgently they needed to bring down Trump. The consequences of each crime that they had committed spurred them on to commit worse crimes to save themselves from going to jail. It’s the same old story when it comes to criminals.
Each act of illegal surveillance became more blatant. And when illegal surveillance couldn’t stop Trump’s victory, they had to double down on the illegal surveillance for a coup.
The more Obama spied on Trump, the more he had to keep doing it. This time it was bound to pay off.
Obama and his allies had violated the norms so often for their policy goals that they couldn’t afford to be replaced by anyone but one of their own. The more Obama relied on the imperial presidency of executive orders, the less he could afford to be replaced by anyone who would undo them. The more his staffers lied and broke the law on everything from the government shutdown to the Iran nuke sellout, the more desperately they needed to pull out all the stops to keep Trump out of office. And the more they did it, the more they couldn’t afford not to do it. Abuse of power locks you into the loop familiar to all dictators. You can’t stop riding the tiger. Once you start, you can’t afford to stop.
If you want to understand why Samantha Power was unmasking names, that’s why. The hysterical obsession with destroying Trump comes from the top down. It’s not just ideology. It’s wealthy and powerful men and women who ran the country and are terrified that their crimes will be exposed.
It’s why the media increasingly sounds like the propaganda organs of a Communist country. Why there are street riots and why the internet is being censored by Google and Facebook’s “fact checking” allies.
It’s not just ideology. It’s raw fear.
The left is sitting on the biggest crime committed by a sitting president. The only way to cover it up is to destroy his Republican successor.
A turning point in history is here.
If Obama goes down, the left will go down with him. If his coup succeeds, then America ends."
