Obama's/Progressives War On Traditional America & The Constitution - John L - 03-05-2017

Is there anyone here, who is paying close attention to what is going on with this Shadow War against Traditional America?  For the short run, it is being led by Obama, against Trump and Administration.  But for the long run, it is to do away with the Constitution and install a Collectivist State.  

This really has me worried, and I haven't been able to find a good place to start here.  But this latest Trump accusation about MacDaddy actually tapping his phones and trying to sabotage him before he was even elected, is really bringing it to a head.  And naturally the Progressive Left AND the Whore Media are ridiculing him for being deranged.  

But this doesn't appear to be the case.  Here's what I mean, and this thing actually began back in 2012.

Quote:Obama signs warrantless-wiretapping bill into law

President Barack Obama signed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act bill into law yesterday after the U.S. Senate voted for an extension of the President George W. Bush-era spy bill 73-23.

The FISA bill gives the government clearance to tap into American citizens’ communications with people outside of the U.S. without a warrant, so long as it is done in the name of collecting foreign intelligence. Obama has previously stated his approval of the bill, saying that the U.S. needs such measures when dealing with national security. More specifically, it means that government entities such as the National Security Agency are able to watch Americans without probable cause. They need only an order from the secret FISA court, and they don’t have to alert the targeted citizen prior to the wiretapping.

At the time the bill’s extension passed, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which protects people’s digital rights, called the decision a “blight on our nation.”

Perhaps more concerning is the fact that the surveillance can begin before an order is received and can continue through an appeals process should the court decide not to issue the order, as Wired notes.

Senators from both sides of the aisle proposed a number of amendments to FISA, including one that would require the government to reveal how many citizens have already been affected by this kind of surveillance. Thus far, we are unsure of the scale of the FISA bills’ effect. Another amendment would force the government to be more transparent about what exactly it is monitoring and what kind of data it is collecting.

The senate voted for the bill’s extension on Friday. It is now set to expire in 2017.

This is all part and parcel of that Homeland Security Act that Junior started right after 9/11.  It has become some sort of monster that is always used by unsavory individuals intent on using the law to violate the liberties of innocent citizens.  

And even though FISA has some form of check to abuse of Liberties, it is still easy to skirt around.  And it seems that is exactly what Obama and Crew did.   If you haven't read this next story yet, you really need to do so, so as to have a firm handle on what is about to come in the near future.  My guess is that the Dumbasses will still cower in the corner and not come out swinging, as they are so prone to do.  This is going to be the Perfect chance to thrust a sword in the very heard of the Jackasses, if used skillfully.  But I have little to no faith in the Republicans to have the moral courage to go after their opponents, OR MacDaddy for that matter.  After all, they are Cowards.

But Trump is indeed an entirely different story.  My guess is that he will charge right into the Enemy and go for Broke.  And if he uses skill and courage, he should be able to solidify his presidency AND show country just who is the biggest danger: Obama and The Progressive Left.

Here is the Must Read, and what is quoted here is just a part of this great article.  You all have Got to read it to fully understand the very scope of Obama's actions and the potential consequences of them.

Quote:Yes, There Could Be Serious Legal Problems if Obama Admin Involved in Illegal Surveillance

Do liberals Progressives understand what Pandora’s Box Obama opened up by Obama using the powers of the NSA, CIA and FBI to spy on his political opponents? Even Nixon never did that.

If the stories are correct, Obama or his officials might even face prosecution. But, we are still early in all of this and there are a lot of rumors flying around so the key is if the reports are accurate. We just don’t know at this time. The stories currently are three-fold: first, that Obama’s team tried to get a warrant from a regular, Article III federal court on Trump, and was told no by someone along the way (maybe the FBI), as the evidence was that weak or non-existent; second, Obama’s team then tried to circumvent the federal judiciary’s independent role by trying to mislabel the issue one of “foreign agents,” and tried to obtain a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act “courts”, and were again turned down, when the court saw Trump named (an extremely rare act of FISA court refusal of the government, suggesting the evidence was truly non-existent against Trump); and so, third, Obama circumvented both the regular command of the FBI and the regularly appointed federal courts, by placing the entire case as a FISA case (and apparently under Sally Yates at DOJ) as a “foreign” case, and then omitted Trump’s name from a surveillance warrant submitted to the FISA court, which the FISA court unwittingly granted, which Obama then misused to spy on Trump and many connected to Trump. Are these allegations true? We don’t know yet, but if any part of them are then Obama and/or his officials could face serious trouble.

Can a President be charged with a crime? Only once out of office. While in office, impeachment remains the exclusive remedy in order to avoid a single judicial branch trying to overturn an election, such as a grand jury in any part of the country could. Once out of office, a President remains immune from civil liability for his duties while President, under a 1982 decision of the United States Supreme Court. However, as the Nixon pardon attests, nothing forecloses a criminal prosecution of the President after his presidency is complete for crimes against the country. Obama, the Constitutional lawyer, should know that.

What crimes could have been committed? Ironically, for Democrats falsely accusing Attorney General Sessions, perjury and conspiracy to commit perjury, as well as intentional violations of FISA. Rather shockingly, no law currently forbids misusing the power of the presidency to spy on one’s adversaries. What the law does forbid is lying to any judicial officer to obtain any means of surveillance. What the law does forbid, under criminal penalty, is the misuse of FISA. Both derive from the protections of the Fourth Amendment itself. Under section 1809, FISA makes it a crime for anyone to either “engage in” electronic surveillance under “color of law” under FISA without following the law’s restrictions, or “disclose” or “use” information gathered from it in contravention of the statute’s sharp constrictions.

Mark Levin is literally having a Fit over all this.  He is simply Livid and on the warpath.

Mark Levin: Wiregate/Towergate Evidence is Overwhelming

Quote:Mark Levin to Congress: Investigate Obama’s ‘Silent Coup’ vs. Trump

1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.

2. July: Russia joke. Wikileaks releases emails from the Democratic National Committee that show an effort to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from winning the presidential nomination. In a press conference, Donald Trump refers to Hillary Clinton’s own missing emails, joking: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.” That remark becomes the basis for accusations by Clinton and the media that Trump invited further hacking.

3. October: Podesta emails. In October, Wikileaks releases the emails of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, rolling out batches every day until the election, creating new mini-scandals. The Clinton campaign blames Trump and the Russians.

4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now 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 Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

5. January 2017: Buzzfeed/CNN dossier. Buzzfeed releases, and CNN reports, a supposed intelligence “dossier” compiled by a foreign former spy. It purports to show continuous contact between Russia and the Trump campaign, and says that the Russians have compromising information about Trump. None of the allegations can be verified and some are proven false. Several media outlets claim that they had been aware of the dossier for months and that it had been circulating in Washington.

6. January: Obama expands NSA sharing. As Michael Walsh later notes, and as the New York Times reports, the outgoing Obama administration “expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.” The new powers, and reduced protections, could make it easier for intelligence on private citizens to be circulated improperly or leaked.

7. January: Times report. The New York Times reports, on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies — the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Treasury Department are monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties. Other news outlets also report the exisentence of “a multiagency working group to coordinate investigations across the government,” though it is unclear how they found out, since the investigations would have been secret and involved classified information.

8. February: Mike Flynn scandal. Reports emerge that the FBI intercepted a conversation in 2016 between future National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — then a private citizen — and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The intercept supposedly was part of routine spying on the ambassador, not monitoring of the Trump campaign. The FBI transcripts reportedly show the two discussing Obama’s newly-imposed sanctions on Russia, though Flynn earlier denied discussing them. Sally Yates, whom Trump would later fire as acting Attorney General for insubordination, is involved in the investigation. In the end, Flynn resigns over having misled Vice President Mike Pence (perhaps inadvertently) about the content of the conversation.

9. February: Times claims extensive Russian contacts. The New York Times cites “four current and former American officials” in reporting that the Trump campaign had “repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials. The Trump campaign denies the claims — and the Times admits that there is “no evidence” of coordination between the campaign and the Russians. The White House and some congressional Republicans begin to raise questions about illegal intelligence leaks.

10. March: the Washington Post targets Jeff Sessions. The Washington Post reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had contact twice with the Russian ambassador during the campaign — once at a Heritage Foundation event and once at a meeting in Sessions’s Senate office. The Post suggests that the two meetings contradict Sessions’s testimony at his confirmation hearings that he had no contacts with the Russians, though in context (not presented by the Post) it was clear he meant in his capacity as a campaign surrogate, and that he was responding to claims in the “dossier” of ongoing contacts. The New York Times, in covering the story, adds that the Obama White House “rushed to preserve” intelligence related to alleged Russian links with the Trump campaign. By “preserve” it really means “disseminate”: officials spread evidence throughout other government agencies “to leave a clear trail of intelligence for government investigators” and perhaps the media as well.

Flashback: First FISA Request on Trump Tower Came After Clinton and AG Lynch Met Privately on Tarmac

Its going to be interesting as to just how long all of this is going to start unraveling in a Big Way. Like a snowball rolling down hill, it will quickly gain a mass of its own. And there are no Jackasses in power able to do anything to stop it,.........................EXCEPT James Comey. I suspect he will be on the outside looking in real soon.

I wonder how little Chucky Shumer, and his palls, are going to sweep this under the rug?

It appears that everyone knew about the Trump wiretap,.......except Trump. I can see that the year 2017 is going to be a very interesting year, with all of the congressional investigations. Of course, this will all depend on whether or not the Dumbasses quit cowering in the corner. Gah

Obviously Trump is not the only target for the Progressive children.  Even Ben Carson has suddenly been castigated because he equated slaves with immigrants.  

Liberals Progressives criticized Ben Carson for calling slaves ‘immigrants’ – but guess who did it first

That's right, MacDaddy did it first.  Where was all the squealing and foul language then?  And did Samuel L Jackson call Obama a "MUTHAFUKKA" first?  Right!#@!

Quote:But, as Breitbart’s White House correspondent Charlie Spiering pointed out, Carson’s comments are not without precedent. In fact, Obama equated slaves and immigrants during a naturalization ceremony in December 2015.

Click to Enlarge

The former president, a Democrat, made the comments when he was explaining that coming to the U.S. isn’t necessarily “easy for new immigrants.”

“Certainly,” Obama explained, “it wasn’t easy for those of African heritage who had not come here voluntarily and yet in their own way were immigrants themselves. There was discrimination and hardship and poverty.”

Just borrowing the thread because this has Obama in it, but, it isn't about him. I read an article a while back about these Minuteman Missiles from a technical angle not relating to software problems which is what this article is about.

Several past commanders say they probably should be retired, too often they've had dead serious problems with them, they're old and way out of date:
