In a series of Tweets, Donald Trump made the claim, slamming it as a “new low”. He then appeared to brand Obama a “bad (or sick) guy”.

The property tycoon turned politician wrote: “How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”

Watergate refers the early 1970s political scandal which forced the resignation of Republican President Richard Nixon when it emerged that the Democratic party’s headquarters had been broken into.

He also tweeted: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”

McCarthyism is the practise of making accusations without proper evidence.

He later added: “Is it legal for a sitting President to be “wire tapping” a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A NEW LOW!”

Oleg-I hate to say this, but I agree. The Freedom Caucus is standing firm with us. Ryan can't stand the Tea Party and most everything we stand for.

Robert...

One of the first items in establishing an order of battle is to IDENTIFY ones ENEMIES... the fact is that our major enemies are not in the Democrat Party  The Democrat Party is out of power ... and has no REAL say in what is happening.  The only say the Democrat's have is the say Ryan and McConnell allow them to have.

What is happening is that the Establishment ... in both named political parties are in fact the opposition party.  There is really only one party in DC and that is the Establishment Party... made up of members in both Political Parties it is the ruling party... and they know how to conduct Kabuki theater and Machiavellian politics... these are the individuals who make up the Swamp.

Trump must identify the swamp and target them for elimination... thru criminal investigation, political pressure, and future elections.  If he is unable to eliminate them he will find it nearly impossible to accomplish what he has promised.

Ronald-I agree with everything you said; however, we probably have different opinions on where the swamp is and what kind of creatures are in it.

As a example, I believe that there are a lot of high level Military Officers and Civil Servants who award contracts, retire and end up working for the guy who won the contract.

Now DOD is only one of the many Government agencies!

Term limits may drain a couple of sharks but not the killer wales.

It's amazing what people will do and how they justify it for 10 pieces of silver.

Do you think when Jesus said to Peter, " feed my sheep; feed my lambs, feed my sheep", he was talking about " food " or " the word of God "?

Just one point to make about your term limit comment, term limits weed out people like Jim Jordan, who is exactly the type of moral, brave person we need. True term limits lie in the voting booth. Alas, but the people are ignorant fools and the voting booth is closed to true contenders, only to party machine dictators, in general.

I only wish, dear friends, that everyone could read M. Stanton Evans's wonderful biography, Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America's Enemies (Random House, Inc., 2007). Senator Joseph McCarthy was a man of great courage, who saw the plain sight of the legion of Communists working within the Roosevelt and Truman Administration during and after World War II.  The Democrats and the Eisenhower Republicans were artful in the way they used him as a scapegoat for deflecting public criticism of the significant influence Stalin enjoyed within the circles of the Washington Establishment.  The continuation of the vilification is a mark of the ignorance many of us have of the true facts of the momentous events ensuing from the HUAC and from Senator McCarthy himself.  Many patriotic Americans quietly admired the truck of Sen. McCarthy, but, in the end, the forces within the Republican Establishment joined the Democratic lynch mob in pursuit of the defense of Communism  in America.  

"McCarthyism" is usually defined as "making accusations without proper evidence". From exactly whom have we seen the predominance of fake news, anyway?  It has always been the very enemies McCarthy so vehemently attacked!  Senator McCarthy would have admired the Tea Party, and vice-versa!  We should make it a point to remember how perfidious the Republican Establishment was and remains.  They remind me of the Bonapartist phony nobility in France that destroyed the cause of French conservatism in the 19th Century! 

And Trump just knocked McCarthy, he does not know who the good guys are or the bad guys are apparently.

Would you lie to America... are your lips moving?

None of this would have happened if Trump had lost. Like he was supposed to. None of it.

Therefore it is Trump's fault.

And the dumb assed American people.  The ones that voted for him.

All this crime going on is the fault of, you guessed it, TRUMP. His Tower should be tapped, wired to the hilt. The sonofabitch stole the election. Him and that damn KGB Sh-t.

ISIS ain't a problem. Freedom fightin is what they are doing. And jobs? JOBS?? What the hell is that anyway?  Who  needs one? We got the gubmint supporting us. What the hell ya think it's for.

Assad is a good guy. He voted for Hillary. You can bet your sweet butt he did. Sure, he wiped out some low life scum. Prolly Trumpsters. You gotta do what you gotta do. Obama did.    "Yes, we can!" Member that?

Trump is a lying no good thief. His stealing caused all this crime wire tappin sh-t. Impeach him. Only BLM anyway.

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The above photo was published by the Associated Press in June 2014, and the photo below is of Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, touring a Border Patrol facility with “cages.”

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
