The mainstream media knew Obama spied on Trump and reported on it for months. Then when President Trump referred to as Obama and the media on it in a sequence on tweets, mentioning the actual fact it was unlawful, the mainstream media shortly modified their tune and commenced the massive cowl up.
The proof is in black and white. Mainstream media have damned themselves with their very own newsprint. In reality, as you’ll see under, for 2 causes, the media was overjoyed that this spying had occurred: (1) they acquired scoops damaging to Trump, and (2) of their partisan and cultish minds, the actual fact that the oh-so pure Obama administration felt the necessity to spy, might solely imply Trump was in mattress with Putin.
In reality, the media was really having an enormous public get together utilizing Obama’s spying. Hoo-hah right here’s a scoop! Whee-hee Flynn mentioned this! Woo-woo palace intrigue! Ha-haaah right here’s what so-and-so mentioned! Tra-la-la right here’s what so-and-so did!
As Daily Wire reports: on March four, in a sequence of tweets that had the very same impact as political nukes, Trump himself confirmed what the media had already instructed us – that the Obama administration had spied on him and his staff.
Trump’s brilliance was specializing in the sleazy and unlawful act of the particular spying. And that is when the media realized that each one their ha-has and tra-la-las had been about to backfire. Their Precious Barry was now in danger, and so the shameless cowl up and mendacity started …
Suddenly, proper round eight a.m. on Saturday, March four, the traditional knowledge and public information that the Obama administration had spied on Trump, was surrounded by the media’s semantic wagons which had been manned by mendacity journalists armed with hair-splitting. I don’t wish to undergo all that once more, so you possibly can learn why Trump instructed the 100% fact within the first part of this piece. The backside line, although, is that this …
Trump accused Obama of spying on him.
Obama did spy on Trump.
The media knew Obama spied on Trump.
The media lied and coated up the truth that Obama spied on Trump.
We know this with absolute certainty as a result of the media itself spent months telling us so. And right here is all of the proof you’ll ever have to make that case … [emphasis mine throughout]
EXCLUSIVE: FBI ‘Granted FISA Warrant’ Covering Trump Camp’s Ties To Russia
Two separate sources with hyperlinks to the counter-intelligence neighborhood have confirmed to Heat Street that the FBI sought, and was granted, a FISA courtroom warrant in October, giving counter-intelligence permission to look at the actions of ‘U.S. persons’ in Donald Trump’s marketing campaign with ties to Russia.
So let’s cease for a second to make a few issues clear. The FBI studies to the Department of Justice, which on the time was run by Obama’s extremely politicized Attorney General, Loretta Lynch. The creator of this piece, Louise Mensch, despises Trump, and when you’ll have a look at the publication date, she dropped this supposed bombshell the night time earlier than the election, and did so for causes I shouldn’t have to clarify.
You are actually asking yourselves: Who the hell is Heat Street and the way does this show something? That’s a good query, let me reply it this fashion: As you’ll see under, this report of the Obama administration asking for and receiving a surveillance warrant to watch Team Trump is confirmed by various different MSM sources.
Moreover, a minimum of The New York Times re-published this data as recently as last weekend.
The Guardian has discovered that the FBI utilized for a warrant from the overseas intelligence surveillance (Fisa) courtroom over the summer time to be able to monitor 4 members of the Trump staff suspected of irregular contacts with Russian officers. The Fisa courtroom turned down the appliance asking FBI counter-intelligence investigators to slim its focus. According to at least one report, the FBI was lastly granted a warrant in October, however that has not been confirmed, and it’s not clear whether or not any warrant led to a full investigation.
The left-wing Guardian not solely reported that the Obama administration sought a surveillance warrant, however that it was particularly requested to “monitor four members of the Trump team.” This was the summer time request, as reported by Heat Street, that was turned down.
In its last days, the Obama administration has expanded the ability of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted private communications with the federal government’s 16 different intelligence companies earlier than making use of privateness protections.
The new guidelines considerably loosen up longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. could do with the knowledge gathered by its strongest surveillance operations, that are largely unregulated by American wiretapping legal guidelines. These embrace gathering satellite tv for pc transmissions, telephone calls and emails that cross community switches overseas, and messages between folks overseas that cross home community switches.
The change signifies that much more officers can be looking by uncooked knowledge. Essentially, the federal government is lowering the danger that the N.S.A. will fail to acknowledge that a piece of data can be helpful to a different company, however growing the danger that officers will see personal details about harmless folks.
This is crucial piece of the puzzle, as a result of it explains how the media was getting all of its scoops by way of leaks by way of surveillance. Moreover, it explains how the media knew it was getting all these scoops by way of leaks by way of surveillance.
If you aren’t the goal of the surveillance, in case your title shouldn’t be on the FISA warrant, if you’re “incidentally” picked up in surveillance, to be able to shield your privateness as assured by the Fourth Amendment, the federal government is required by legislation to masks or blackout your title in its studies.
Just earlier than working out the door, the Obama administration unilaterally modified the legislation in a manner that allowed surveillance intel to be disseminated all through all 16 nationwide safety companies “before applying privacy protections” – and this consists of surveillance picked up by the NSA, which is “largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws[.]”
Let me clarify what occurs …
Hoo-ha, lookie-lookie at what we “incidentally” picked up at Trump Tower. But because of Precious Barry, I don’t need to black out this “incidental juiciness” earlier than I ship it out to 16 entire companies. Golly gee, now that we are able to unfold this far and huge with out masking all of the “incidental juiciness,” I positive hope it doesn’t find yourself within the arms of somebody Obama appointee who likes all these tweets Jake Tapper sends out kissing the Intelligence Community’s ass.
Hey, if anybody has one other principle for why the Obama administration would make such a change simply because the Trump administration was coming in, I’m all ears.
But you don’t. Because there isn’t a different principle. The solely motive to authorize the spreading far and huge of those “incidental” names is to raised the possibilities of Trump-related leaks to the hostile media.
Not to get too far off monitor, however welcome to a banana republic the place secret and illegal surveillance is leaked to the general public for partisan functions.
Lawyers from the National Security Division in the Department of Justice then drew up an software. They took it to the key US courtroom that offers with intelligence, the Fisa courtroom, named after the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. They needed permission to intercept the digital data from two Russian banks.
Their first software, in June, was rejected outright by the choose. They returned with a extra narrowly drawn order in July and had been rejected once more. Finally, earlier than a brand new choose, the order was granted, on 15 October, three weeks earlier than election day.
Neither Mr Trump nor his associates are named within the Fisa order, which might solely cowl overseas residents or overseas entities – on this case the Russian banks. But finally, the investigation is searching for transfers of cash from Russia to the United States, each, if proved, a felony offence.
A lawyer – outdoors the Department of Justice however acquainted with the case – instructed me that three of Mr. Trump’s associates had been the topic of the inquiry. “But it’s clear this is about Trump,” he mentioned.
The left-wing BBC not solely backs up the Heat Street reporting however publishes the information that “three of Trump’s associates” had been a part of this surveillance operation.
The companies concerned within the inquiry are the FBI, the CIA, the National Security Agency, the Justice Department, the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and representatives of the director of nationwide intelligence, the sources mentioned. …
A key mission of the six-agency group has been to look at who financed the e-mail hacks of the Democratic National Committee and Clinton marketing campaign chairman John Podesta. The London-based transparency group WikiLeaks launched the emails final summer time and in October.
The working group is scrutinizing the actions of some Americans who had been affiliated with Trump’s marketing campaign or his enterprise empire and of a number of people from Russia and different former Soviet nations.
The BBC reported that the FBI had obtained a warrant on Oct. 15 from the extremely secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court permitting investigators entry to financial institution data and different paperwork about potential funds and cash transfers associated to Russia. One of McClatchy’s sources confirmed the report.
“Americans associated with Trump[.]”
Even after eight years of Obama, two plus two nonetheless equals 4.
Print headline: “Wiretapped Data Used In Inquiry of Trump Aides” …
The F.B.I. is main the investigations, aided by the National Security Agency, the C.I.A. and the Treasury Department’s monetary crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in current weeks however have discovered no conclusive proof of wrongdoing, the officers mentioned. One official mentioned intelligence studies primarily based on a few of the wiretapped communications had been offered to the White House.
The Obama administration is investigating Trump.
The White House is taking a look at intelligence primarily based on “wiretapped communications.”
This is The New York Times, y’all. This is the secular media’s Bible, their Gaia, their Sacrament of all that’s Right and True, and that Bible laid all of it out in the very same language utilized by Trump.
Headline: “National security adviser Flynn discussed sanctions with Russian ambassador, despite denials, officials say”
National safety adviser Michael Flynn privately mentioned U.S. sanction sagainst Russia with that nation’s ambassador to the United States throughout the month earlier than President Trump took workplace, opposite to public assertions by Trump officers, present and former U.S. officers mentioned.
Flynn’s communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak had been interpreted by some senior U.S. officers as an inappropriate and doubtlessly unlawful sign to the Kremlin that it might count on a reprieve from sanctions that had been being imposed by the Obama administration in late December to punish Russia for its alleged interference within the 2016 election.
The Washington Post says it loud and says it proud that the month previous to Trump taking workplace, the Obama administration listened to Flynn’s telephone calls. It ought to be added that the report additionally says that Flynn mentioned nothing unethical or fallacious.
Maybe the FISA warrant focused the Russian ambassador. Nevertheless, as soon as Flynn’s title was unmasked, disseminated and publicly leaked, at the least two felonies had occurred – and incidental (yeah, proper) or not, as soon as all that occurred, what the Obama administration did is named SPYING.
Let’s additionally add to the combination the juicy incontrovertible fact that a number of members of the Obama administration had entry to this unmasked details about Flynn.
Washington Post columnist David Ignatius cited a single “senior U.S. government official” whereas reporting that “Flynn phoned Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak several times on Dec. 29, the day the Obama administration announced the expulsion of 35 Russian officials as well as other measures in retaliation for the hacking.” …
Last Thursday, The Post cited “nine current and former officials” in a narrative headlined “National security adviser Flynn discussed sanctions with Russian ambassador, despite denials, officials say.”
The New York Times shortly matched the story and mentioned there was a transcript of the discussions.
The chronology means that some officers within the authorities sought to alert the general public to Flynn’s contacts by leaking to the press.
This is CNN, the identical community that for 3 weeks now has smeared Trump as a liar over his declare Obama spied on him – and but, this exact same CNN is seen right here celebrating the truth that Mike Flynn was taken down by – learn intently now – the Obama administration intercepting Flynn’s telephone calls, together with a doable TRANSCRIPT.
Riddle me this, CNN: How did the Obama administration get a transcript of a telephone name from a member of Trump’s staff, a staff that was figuring out of Trump Tower? I imply, aside from a wiretap?
Two extra questions: Was Flynn’s title on the FISA warrant? And if not, why didn’t the Obama administration masks his title, as required by legislation?
Either manner, what now we have right here is CNN not solely reporting that the Obama administration spied on Team Trump, however GLOATING over the truth that Obama’s spying resulted in a scalp.
And then, simply three weeks later, CNN would name Trump a liar for believing what? … CNN’s reporting!
A U.S. intelligence official briefed on the matter confirmed to NBC News that National Security Advisor Mike Flynn mentioned sanctions with the Russian ambassador earlier than Flynn took workplace[.]
The official mentioned he was instructed there was no quid professional quo and that there was no discovering inside the federal government that Flynn did something unlawful. …

NBC News clearly knew the Obama administration was listening to Team Trump telephone calls.

CBS News knew the Obama administrations had listened to Flynn’s calls.
I might go on and on – so I hope I’ve made my level and closed my case. The proof is so overwhelming that by now your eyes are in all probability glazed over and also you thoughts is screaming Enough already!
Way again in January, Heat Street, The Guardian, The BBC, and McClatchy all confirmed that he Obama administration sought and/or acquired surveillance warrants aimed toward Team Trump.
