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!”

This presentation shows that Obama's crimes "rise to the level of"  "high crimes and misdemeanors" in his presidency.  What can be done to a seditious former president?  One thing seems clear, Mr. James Comey is NOT the man to handle crime of or on this level.  Is he an "at will" employee of the President?  If so, then he must go.  We need an FBI chief on the level of J. Edgar Hoover, who could bring on investigations that allow indictments.  The President and his leadership team need to GET TOUGH NOW.

HYPOCRISY: 7X More Coverage for Sessions Debacle than Holder Contempt

 

If you ever doubted that the media see the news through a partisan prism, consider this: in less than two days, ABC, CBS and NBC devoted nearly 7 times as much coverage to Jeff Sessions meeting with the Russian Ambassador in his role as a U.S. Senator than they did when then-Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress in June 2012.

Tracking Liberal Media Bias Since 1996

John... that was CRIMINAL CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS... for which the Bar Association should have disbarred him.  He is practicing law in California as we type.. so much for the integrity of the American Bar Association.  Just one more corrupt institution.

Shopping Judges and providing false evidence to obtain a wire tap is within your preview... Obama's first attempt to obtain a FISA wire tap evidently did not prove successful so they manufactured more evidence and reapplied until they found a FISA Judge willing to sign an order... or simply, by passed a Judge and proceeded with the wire tap thinking they would never be caught... recall, Trump was supposed to loose by huge margins.

Amicable Judge could be on a Road to Riches, check whoever signed the Order, then check their Off Shore Accounts, or sudden wealth............Tapping Hillary made sense, as she was always involved in nefarious activities, but Trump................Misuse of Government Agencies..

Former Acting CIA Director and Hillary Clinton endorser Michael Morell spoke out at an event on Wednesday held by Cipher Brief, saying there’s absolutely no evidence to support claims of President Trump colluding with Russia, via NBC News.

“On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians here, there is smoke, but there is no fire, at all…There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark. And there’s a lot of people looking for it,” Morell stated.

May we also say that in my 40 years of following news, I have never seen such a dead horse of a story get so much coverage.  What explains this is that there are many, many "snowflakes" "out there" in the Leftist Bubble who feed on Trump Hate stories, and the Hate Stories that tell about all the "Fake News" that Trump's faithful believe like the Gospel.  It reminds me of the pathetic "Ghost Dance" the Sioux did at Wounded Knee before they died.  

Another "Mass Media Myth"..........these people should write Story Books, or maybe Funny Books.

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.
