“It had to be a scary thought—the thought of a special prosecutor with strong investigative powers looking under the hood of the Obama and Clinton getaway car…”
As I’m writing this, the news is reporting possible bombshell evidence being released in the next few days regarding the Obama administration spying on Donald J. Trump and his transition team. If the roles were switched and the Republicans were to blame (think Richard Nixon), Washington would be in flames. Instead, we have casual avoidance of the subject by the media, who continues to scream “the Russians!” whenever any derogatory evidence is brought up against our previous Dear Leader Obama.
But this is not the first time, is it? There has been a long string of evidence implicating the Obama administration in abusing the power of the state he was given by the American people.
The IRS first comes to mind. Using the tax agency of the federal government against the political opposition is something straight out of Moscow, even though the Democrats are the ones screaming “the Russians are coming!” Putin regularly ransacks offices or homes of his foes on trumped up (pardon the pun) tax evasion charges.
The Obama IRS famously prevented conservative groups from getting tax-exempt status prior to the 2012 election, and then his smug IRS commissioner lied to Congress about it. The woman in charge of the issue at the IRS pleaded the Fifth. Recent reports say the IRS is still slow-rolling conservative non-profit applications. This is corruption pure and simple—using the agencies of the federal government against your adversaries. It’s right out of any totalitarian regime or banana republic dictator. It’s not supposed to happen here, but it did. And it is still going on.
If you remember the real history of the Obama administration, not the media spin that the corrupt, lapdog press wants you to remember, it is not hard to find many more factual instances where the Obama White House used the power of the state against ordinary citizens.
James Rosen comes to the forefront of the list.
Here was a case of a reporter who was discovering information about a corrupt government agenda (which is what reporters are supposed to do, if you recall) but had his computers hacked into, his communications tapped, and was threatened with legal prosecution over his efforts to blow the whistle on Obama’s actions. As far as we know, Obama got away with these actions. No one went to jail, no one was fired, and we don’t even know if additional controls were put in place to prevent this type of thing from happening again.
In fact, situations similar to this continued to take place.
Sharyl Attkisson accused the government of hacking her files at the media company where she worked and later accused her bosses at CBS of covering up what actually happened to protect the Obama administration.
The problem is that Obama had no problem corrupting our intelligence and security services. It was the Chicago way. He knew nothing else. He did not get to be the president of the United States by being a patriot. He got there by corruption, and he stayed there by corruption. Our intelligence apparatus has been completely politicized, no longer serving the safety and security of the American people, but has morphed into an organization led by a cadre of political minders no different than those in North Korea whose only goal is to keep the regime in power.
The Deep State exists. And it is now doing its best to destroy the current president with the media’s help.
The revelations of surveillance on Donald J. Trump and his campaign/transition staff and the unmasking and dissemination of this surveillance by Obama traitors in government, I believe, will be born out to be more than just true. I believe we are just getting glimpses of the iceberg that lies underneath.
An iceberg of treason and diabolical deceit.
This scheme makes Watergate look like a birthday picnic gone wrong. Here we have an active attempt by a sitting administration to injure and destroy an incoming presidential administration. That is diabolical. It is historic in the gravity of the intent and actions.
There is slime emanating from the Obama years with Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the VA scandals, the sale of uranium to Russia, the Clinton cash boondoggle with the Clinton Foundation, the Iran Deal, and on and on. But this takes the cake. Or, you could say it’s the icing on the cake of the Obama decade of crime.
No wonder the Democrats are constantly screaming “the Russians are coming!” They have to keep attention away from what really happened. No wonder they are so set to resist the Trump initiative. They have to distract Trump from finding out the corruption that runs as deep as a river inside the federal government.
During the Soviet Union, and even into the Yeltsin years, the main concern of Russian leaders was that the next government would overlook the deep-seated criminality of their time in government and not prosecute themselves or their family from looting the people’s treasury or plotting against their political enemies.
Obama and his minions were no different. This is why the election of Trump over Hillary Clinton was so shocking to them. Suddenly, they were exposed. Suddenly, the plan fell apart. Suddenly, the under-the-table deals with the media were no more. Suddenly, the media lost its gravy train as well. This is what Obama did to America. This is the stain he and the Clintons put upon her.
I won’t even go into the Clinton years; however, you don’t have to think very hard to remember all of the corruption of that period as well. This has been going on for decades inside of this political party, or crime family, as I like to call it.
Obama and Hillary thought they had the succession all wrapped up. They thought the party would continue. They thought the revolving door of money and power in Washington would keep revolving.
They were wrong. The American people have had enough. At least, the people who remember what freedom felt and tasted like have had enough. The people who work hard for their living have had enough. The people who want a good life for children and have concern about their future have had enough.
They decided to take a stand. The media tried to ignore it. The people elected Donald Trump. Suddenly they were vulnerable—to prosecution, that is. It had to be a scary thought—the thought of a special prosecutor with strong investigative powers looking under the hood of the Obama and Clinton getaway car.
The Democratic Party and its media minions are the largest organized crime body ever developed in the United States. It makes the Communist Party of China or the former Soviet Union proud. The only option to deal with this problem is to make sure we delve into the corruption and filth that lies beneath the surface. It has to be exposed. Otherwise, it will live on, to continue the destruction of this once great country.
There has to be accountability for the last eight years of lies and the illegal usurpation of power against the American people.
America as we knew her, that kept the peace and was a beacon of hope and prosperity for the rest of the world, is dying. We patriots must make sure this does not happen. We are the last line of defense. We have to undertake this destiny, if only for the lives of our children, so that they can live in peace and prosperity as well.
The Democratic Party and its corrupt propaganda arm of the mainstream media must be defeated in their globalist goals. The cancer within America must be destroyed.
