Trump's "Wiretapping" Allegations Based in Fact
by C. Mitchell Shaw
.
 Hypocritically Demanding Evidence 
On Saturday, Donald Trump released a series of tweets in which he alleged that Barack liar-nObama had ordered "wiretapping" at his New York Trump Tower campaign headquarters. Trump's allegation was met with a litany of Leftmedia finger wagging because he didn't provide any evidence to back up his claims. The Washington Post news alert read, "Trump, citing no evidence, accuses liar-nObama of 'Nixon/Watergate' plot to wiretap Trump Tower before the election," and the New York Times headline likewise stated, "Trump, Offering No Evidence, Says liar-nObama Tapped His Phones." CNN did the least to hide its bias, running the headline, "Trump's baseless wiretap claim."
          For months now Democrats and the Leftmedia have continuously promoted allegations of supposed collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, and to date no actual evidence of any collaboration has ever been presented. Yet the mainstream media has the gall to call out Trump for making an accusation without evidence. Kettle meet pot.
          For the MSM to declare Trump's claims as being "baseless" is a disingenuously dismissive statement, for there does appear to be some merit to his accusation. Andrew McCarthy of National Review notes that the liar-nObama Justice Department in June 2016 sought to convert an FBI investigation into Trump associates, which had turned up nothing criminal, into a national-security investigation under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). While an initial request was turned down by the FISA court, it appears that other requests were made and eventually in October some surveillance was granted. The extent of surveillance is unknown, as that information is classified.
          The point here is that Trump's accusation merits investigation, and the media's blatant hypocrisy in demanding evidence from Trump while at the same time willingly pushing unverifiable allegations of its own smacks of partisan bias. Objectivity is fast becoming a distant memory.  ~The Patriot Post

Some Quick Thoughts on the Leak
of CIA Hacking Documents
by FRED FLEITZ
{familysecuritymatters.org} ~ According to press reports, Wikileaks today released thousands of highly classified CIA documents on methods the CIA allegedly is using to conduct cyber warfare... If these documents are legitimate, this illegal release will ruin cyber programs worth billions of dollars that CIA was using to do battle with America's enemies, especially terrorist groups. The CIA officer who took the law into his or her hands to release this material justified this release by claiming this data "urgently need to be debated in public, including whether the CIA's hacking capabilities exceed its mandated powers and the problem of public oversight of the agency." The source also said he or she "wishes to initiate a public debate about the security, creation, use, proliferation and democratic control of cyberweapons." What nonsense. If the leaker truly believed this program violated U.S. law or endangered the privacy rights of America, there are numerous legal avenues he or she could have used, including the CIA Inspector General and the House and Senate intelligence committees. CIA officers take an oath to protect classified national security information. Such a massive illegal disclosure in violation of the CIA secrecy oath is not an act of courage or whistleblowing, it was "a Snowden" - an act of cowardice by a disgruntled individual who never should have been hired by the CIA...  http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/some-quick...

New Yorkers To liar-Hillary Clinton: No, Thanks
by Phillip Stucky
{dailycaller.com} ~ Former Secretary of State liar-Hillary Clinton didn’t perform well in the latest poll in the New York City mayor’s race, according to a new Rasmussen poll released Tuesday... Fifty-eight percent of likely voters in the city don’t want liar-Clinton to run again, compared to just 23 percent of voters who wanted the former presidential candidate to run. Nineteen percent of voters hadn’t yet made up their mind. Current Mayor Bill de Blasio is set to run for reelection, but trails Republican challenger Paul Massey, Jr. in terms of fundraising. Massey raised $1.6 million in the race so far, compared to de Blasio’s $1 million.  http://dailycaller.com/2017/03/07/new-yorkers-to-hillary-clinton-no...

Canada's New Blasphemy Laws
by Khadija Khan
{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ A resolution, M-103, seeking to condemn so-called "Islamophobia," was introduced a few weeks ago in the peaceful country of Canada by Liberal Party MP Iqra Khalid in the House of Commons, sparking a controversy... A similar motion, labelled M-37, was later tabled in the Ontario provincial legislature by MPP Nathalie Des Rosiers on February 23, 2017, and was passed by the provincial parliament. Hardliners who support this form of censorship, and presumably other restrictions required by Islamic sharia law, aim to blur the line between genuine bigotry and criticism of core problems across the Muslim world, such as the murder of apostates and homosexuals, communal hatred, anti-Semitism, violence against women and minors, female genital mutilation (FGM), child marriage, unequal legal and inheritance rights for women, stoning, flogging and amputation, and social taboos such as honour killings or right to choose a husband for girls or restrict girls' education...  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/10015/canada-blasphemy-laws

Swedish Defense Ministry Warns Muslim Brotherhood Building Parallel Swedish Society
by Jeff Dunetz
{lidblog.com} ~ Sweden and it’s problem with Muslim refugees has been in the news ever since President Trump mentioned the country at a rally about a month ago. Of course the liberal American media has been covering the story by bashing the President for making the comment... An interesting/frightening news item is being covered in the British press which is being ignored in the U.S. According to the Swedish Defense Ministry the Muslim Brotherhood, parent organization of many world-wide Islamist terrorist organizations is creating a parallel society in their country. Per the UK Daily Mail, the government document claims that the with the help of a PC political elite, the Muslim Brotherhood is building a “parallel society” within the country so it can organize Swedish Muslims into a strong political voting bloc as a step in helping it get closer to its goal, a global Sunni Islamic Caliphate...  http://lidblog.com/swedish-govt-muslim-brotherhood/

Paul Ryan Betrays President Trump On
liar-nObamacare Repeal And Replace
by CHQ Staff
{conservativehq.com} ~ It was inevitable that this would happen, but we figured it would take a little longer. Speaker Paul Ryan’s so-called liar-nObamacare “repeal and replace” bill is a complete sellout of President Trump’s campaign promise... to rid the country and the economy of the disaster of liar-nObamacare, but the President is already being suckered into endorsing it. Indeed, President Trump’s White House spokesman, Sean Spicer, falsely stated yesterday that the healthcare bill from House Speaker Paul Ryan represents what will eventually be a full repeal of liar-nObamacare. As our friend Matthew Boyle writing for Breitbart pointed-out, the bill is more like liar-nObamacare 2.0 because the bill keeps in place the liar-nObamacare requirements that insurers allow for coverage of pre-existing conditions and allows children to stay on their parents’ health care until they’re 26-years-old. It shifts the individual mandate from being a tax paid to the government to a penalty paid to insurance companies, does not even address the Medicaid issue in states effectively, helps illegal aliens access healthcare in the system, and it does not allow for purchasing of insurance across state lines as Republicans have promised for years—among many, many other problems...  http://www.conservativehq.com/node/25234

Trump's "Wiretapping" Allegations Based in Fact
by C. Mitchell Shaw
{thenewamerican.com} ~ President Trump is sticking to his claims that President liar-nObama — in a move that would make Watergate look small by comparison — wiretapped Trump Tower in the weeks leading up to the election. liar-nObama, the intelligence community, and the liberal mainstream media all say the president’s claims are false. But the evidence is on Trump’s side in this continuation of his battle with his enemies in politics, the intelligence community, and media.

As part of the investigation into alleged — and unproven — connections between the Trump campaign and Russia, the liar-nObama administration appears to have wired Trump tower for sound. The New American previously covered the intelligence community’s attacks on Trump — first as a candidate, then as President-elect — including the release of a “dossier” purported to show that Trump was both under the control of and the beneficiary of Russian intelligence services. Claiming that Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted Trump in the White House, Trump’s enemies in politics and the intelligence community — with an assist from the liberal mainstream media — pushed forward with an “investigation” to prove those claims, while ignoring clear evidence that the liar-Clinton campaign had direct ties to Russia.

As The New American previously reported, President Trump took to Twitter on Saturday, accusing the liar-nObama administration of “wiretapping” Trump Tower during the election. As we said in that article:

Reporting yesterday on Levin’s recommendation, Breitbart provided an expanded version of the case against liar-nObama. Attempting to combat the WikiLeaks e-mails damaging the liar-Hillary Clinton campaign, the site informed, the liar-nObama administration submitted a new Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) request last October.

Using the present tense, Breitbart writes that this request is “focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The liar-nObama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.”

In a follow-up article, The New American reported:

Almost as soon as President Trump accused former President liar-nObama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the elections, liar-nObama not only denied it, but also denied that he had ever “ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen.” The statement — issued by liar-nObama spokesman Kevin Lewis — is, of course, false.

And:

Team liar-nObama and the liberal mainstream media pounced on Trump’s accusations, calling them “sensational” and “false.” Lewis’ statement — released Saturday afternoon — is typical of the form:

A cardinal rule of the liar-nObama administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice. As part of that practice, neither President liar-nObama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.”

The backlash did not end there, though. Others expressed their outrage that Trump would dare accuse liar-nObama of overstepping his authority by authorizing surveillance on a presidential candidate from the other party. But, Trump is not backing down. He has called for a Congressional investigation. On Sunday, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said, "President Trump is requesting that as part of their investigation into Russian activity, the Congressional intelligence committees exercise their oversight authority to determine whether executive branch investigative powers were abused in 2016."

The intelligence community chimed in from the shadows, denying that Trump’s claims have any credibility whatsoever and asking the Justice Department to publicly repudiate those claims. FBI Director James Comey — who twice refused to recommend indictment against liar-Hillary Clinton for her many (and obvious) crimes — “has been working to get the Justice Department to knock down the claim because it falsely insinuates that the F.B.I. broke the law, the officials said,” according to the New York Times.

And former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper — who resigned effective with Trump’s inauguration — has now joined the fray. When asked on Sunday’s Meet The Press to confirm or deny the existence of a FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Act) order for surveillance of Trump Tower, Clapper flatly stated, "I can deny it." Of course, this is the same James Clapper who is known for lying under oath and on camera to Congress. Twice.

Setting aside Clapper’s utter lack of credibility, is it possible he is telling the truth this time? Perhaps he only lies under oath. Did FISA issue an order to allow surveillance of Trump Tower to ferret out connections to Russia?

The evidence says FISA did issue the order, and Clapper is keeping to his old ways.

Retired U.S. Army Intelligence Officer Lt. Colonel Tony Shaffer, told FOX News that President Trump has the “paper-trail” to prove his claims. Speaking from his experience in intelligence, Shaffer said, “I don’t doubt for a minute that Mr. Trump has got sufficient — I would say critical mass — of evidence.” He also said that the FISA court did indeed issue the order and that is “one piece of evidence” that Trump’s claims are true.

That FISA order is a foregone conclusion. Earlier in the same video segment of FOX News linked above, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan danced all around the issue without ever actually answering the question. But one thing is clear: The liar-nObama administration first made a FISA request on June 16, 2016 to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and other campaign officials. That request was turned down. The administration reworked the request and renewed it in October. That request — to wiretap Trump Tower — was approved, according to FOX News. Of course, the “investigation” of which this surveillance was a part did not turn up any connection between the Trump campaign and Russia.

FOX News also interviewed Mark Levin, who had reported this on his radio program. Levin explains that public records show the existence of the FISA order, and that the order makes mention of “a computer server possibly related to the Trump campaign and its alleged links to two Russian banks.” The New American reported on this at the time. In that article, this writer said:

Slate published an article claiming that a server belonging to Donald Trump was “communicating in a secretive fashion” with servers in Russia. By the next day, the Washington Post had debunked the Slate article, saying, “That secret Trump-Russia email server link is likely neither secret nor a Trump-Russia link.” Based in part on an interview with Naadir Jeewa, who “does consulting work on precisely the sorts of systems involved in” the scenario involving the server Slate claims was acting as a conduit between Trump and Russia, the article by the Post explains:

To understand what's likely happening, we need to establish a few basics. First of all, the Trump server wasn't really a Trump server. It was much less of a Trump email server, for example, than liar-Hillary Clinton's email server was hers. liar-Clinton had a physical server that hosted her email. The trump-email.com domain that Alfa was connecting to was hosted by a company called Cendyn. Cendyn runs marketing systems for the hospitality industry, meaning that it offers an out-of-the-box solution for a company that owns a bunch of hotels to push out sales pitch emails to its customers. In other words, trump-email.com isn't the email server Trump used to send emails from his closet. It was a domain name that linked back to a Cendyn server.

This is important for a few reasons. The first, Jeewa said, was that the trump-email.com was configured to reject a certain type of query from another server. Since its job was simply to push out thousands of enticements to come stay at Trump Soho (or whatever) it didn't need to receive many incoming requests (like incoming email). The second is that the conspiracy theory hinges on Trump's team using an offsite server hosted by someone else for its quiet communications with its Russian allies. Instead of, say, their own server, under their own control. Or an encrypted chat app. Or a phone call.

This writer has to admit to being amused to see the shoe on the other foot or the tinfoil hat on the other head, in this instance as the Left trots out wild conspiracy theories to create a Trump-Putin connection to make liar-Clinton retroactively correct. In point of fact, liar-Clinton might be better off trying to implicate Trump in the Kennedy assassination.

So, the allegation on which the FISA order was based was that a server “belonging” to Trump was “communicating” with Russian banks. It appears that Trump’s enemies will swallow anything that fits into their hatred of the man who is now president.

Considering the lack of honesty and lack of judgment which is par-for-the-course in the intelligence community and the lack of scruples which seems to have been a mark of the liar-nObama administration, the investigation Trump is asking for could cause more than a few heads to roll.
