Trump Vindicated Trending on Twitter This A.M. as Wiretapping Claims Proved True

CANDIDATE TRUMP PICTURED WITH CAMPAIGN MANAGER PAUL MANAFORT.

On Monday night I posted this item on the shocking revelation that the FBI was wiretapping the Trump campaign, probably due to an effort by Obama to get dirt on Trump.

Now, early Tuesday morning in the U.S., Tweets with the Trump Vindicated label are trending.

This image is in one of the Tweets. Nice.

When is AG Jeff Sessions going to get to the bottom of this mess by naming a Special Counsel to investigate the Obama/Clinton campaign?

The evidence just keeps spilling out that Obama and his administration were engaged in significant illegal espionage against the Republican challenger. It’s about time that heads rolled and Democrats don prison orange.

Excerpt from Breitbart

U.S. investigators wiretapped President Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to a report by CNN that vindicates the president’s earlier claims, which were mocked as a conspiracy theory.

President Trump had tweeted on March 4: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”

Breitbart News editor Joel Pollak had reported the day before Trump’s tweet that the Obama administration “sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign: continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found.”

Trump’s claim, and Breitbart News’s report, were mocked as a conspiracy theory, and other news outlets reported that there was no basis to the claims.

CNN itself at the time called the idea that Trump was wiretapped “incendiary.”

But a report Monday evening said U.S. investigators obtained a surveillance warrant on Manafort from a secret court and had monitored him before and after the election, including a “period when Manafort was known to talk to President Donald Trump.”

The report said the secret court that handles the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act had authorized a surveillance warrant against Manafort for an investigation that began in 2014, looking into his firm, the Podesta Group, and another firm’s lobbying work for Ukraine’s pro-Russian former ruling party.

“The surveillance was discontinued at some point last year for lack of evidence,” a source told CNN.

However, the FBI then restarted the surveillance after obtaining a new FISA warrant that extended early into this year. The report notably does not say when the new warrant was obtained. Manafort joined the Trump campaign as its chairman in May 2016.

NY Times Compares Trump Campaign to Organized Crime as Manifort Wiretapping and Mueller Terror Tactics Revealed

ROBERT MUELLER. POSTER BOY FOR THE AMERICAN POLICE STATE.

PAUL MANAFORT. DEEP STATE WIRETAPS LASTED FOR YEARS.

No wonder President Trump was so disgusted when Jeff Sessions appointed Robert Mueller as Special Counsel.

Mueller is a (((Deep State))) terrorist, according to what we now know. Mueller’s police state tactics are worthy of the Stalinist Soviet Union.

The news that Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was wiretapped since 2014 has broken big in the press, but the real news to any freedom-loving Constitutionalist is the big reveal on how dirtbag Mueller does business.

With all of the massive hurricanes safely swirling far away from the continental U.S., for a few days at least, the New York Times and CNN has once again returned to their regularly scheduled programming: 24×7 Coverage Of Russian Collusion. Of course, just like their prior coverage, today’s ‘bombshell’ reports, which center around Paul Manafort, are heavy on the sensationalized story telling and light on the facts.

First, the New York Times brings us new, fascinating details of precisely how Robert Mueller raided Paul Manafort’s house earlier this summer using “shock-and-awe tactics to intimidate witnesses and potential targets of the inquiry.”

Paul J. Manafort was in bed early one morning in July when federal agents bearing a search warrant picked the lock on his front door and raided his Virginia home. They took binders stuffed with documents and copied his computer files, looking for evidence that Mr. Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman, set up secret offshore bank accounts. They even photographed the expensive suits in his closet.

Butt Hurt Psychopath Hillary Clinton May Challenge Legitimacy Of Presidential Election

Butt hurt psychopaths are dangerous.

Hillary Clinton just signaled her desire for a soft coup that would place Donald Trump back in Trump Tower and out of the White House. Probably through some sort of unprecedented recall effort similar to the one that removed the governor of California from office some years ago.

Lock her up!

Zerohedge

The US presidential election took place nearly one year ago, but to Hillary Clinton it may as well never have ended.

In an interview with NPR [4], the former first lady said that “if Russian interference turned out to be deeper than previously thought” she wouldn’t rule out challenging its legitimacy or the outcome.

“No, I wouldn’t rule it out,” she said.

Still, even the defeated Democratic nominee admitted that she does not “believe” there is a means to officially challenge the election’s outcome. “I don’t know if there’s any legal, constitutional way to do that,” Clinton said.

“There are scholars, academics, who have arguments that it would be [possible], but I don’t think they’re on strong ground. But people are making those arguments. I just don’t think we have a mechanism,” Mrs. Clinton said. “I think you can raise questions.”

Your sure can, especially if it means staying in the public eye day after day reminding the world how your loss was everyone else’s fault but your own, to the point where even her fellow Democrats have said enough [5]. Monday’s interview is the latest in a whirlwind of appearances the former first lady has given as she promotes her book, “What Happened.”

In addition to Russia, over the past week, she’s continued to blame James Comey, Bernard Sanders and others for her defeat, and she’s also doubled down on her call to end the Electoral College.

None of this is new: Hillary has repeatedly blamed Russia’s efforts to intervene in last year’s election for her loss to Donald Trump, but her latest comments reflect the depth of her frustration with the Kremlin’s efforts which apparently were channeled by Trump himself. She charged that the president knew the Russians were trying to sabotage her campaign, but that it’s unclear if he can be held accountable at this point.

“[Trump] knew they were trying to do whatever they could to discredit me with emails, so there’s obviously a trail there, but I don’t know that in our system we have any means of doing that, but I just wanted to add to the point you made. There’s no doubt they influenced the election: We now know more about how they did that.”

Clinton also said she would have reacted differently than Trump did and established an “independent commission with subpoena power” to probe it.

“Let me just put it this way, if I had lost the popular vote but won the electoral college and in my first day as president the intelligence community came to me and said, ‘The Russians influenced the election,’ I would’ve never stood for it,” she said. “Even though it might’ve advantaged me, I would’ve said, ‘We’ve got to get to the bottom of this.’” She probably meant disadvantaged.

She then proceeded to psychoanalyze Trump, saying that “I think part of the reason Trump behaves the way he behaves is that he is a walking example of projection. Whatever he’s doing and whatever he thinks is happening he will accuse somebody else of”, she concluded without a trace of irony.

Well, even if Hillary fails to challenge Trump over Putin’s unprecedented hacking of millions of middle-class Americans, she can always find comfort in the stupendous, fantastic, if just a little fabricated rating of her book on Amazon [6], which as of today has 4.8 completely unhacked stars out of 5… with Jeff Bezos’ sincerest compliments [7].

One of the positive things about sites that allow comments is how much more we can learn about a story in the comments section:

Chubber offers this extra info:

Damn, but she has to be the dumbest fucking bitch I’ve ever seen. Here are a couple of salient points she may want to consider. 1). The Russia hacking story has been completely debunked by more than one NSA spook along with Assange, who by the way says he has proof he’s willing to turn over (probably in exchange for a pardon). It’s been shown by IT techs that the download speeds were too high to have been done other than in house.

2). The election committee in NH just announced that over 6,000 out of state voters from Mass, voted in the election and only about 1200 eventually got NH drivers licenses. This means that almost 4800 ILLEGAL votes were cast by Massholes, who voted predominately Hillary. Hillary won the NH election by around 2,000 votes, IIRC.

In other words, if the election were contested it is likely that widespread election fraud would be uncovered. Something that the DNC is desperate to keep hidden as evidenced by them contesting the election boards turning over voter information which consists of names and addresses (something every fucking intel agency already has).

Quora offers a brief explanation of how a president can be impeached, but not recalled.

Livid Ex-Trump Supporters Torching MAGA Caps Over DACA Betrayal

LOOKS LIKE TRUMP IS FINISHING THE JOB.

The Internet has been on fire today as anger has blazed in the guts, hearts, and minds of former Trump supporters.

Maybe Trump is drugged, maybe he wants to be impeached, or maybe he was conning folks from the beginning.

Whatever, it was amusing to listen to Sean Hannity on the radio this afternoon try to spin Trump’s disastrous effort to make nice with the much hated Chuck Schumer and the much ridiculed Nancy Pelosi.

NPR

Conservatives are livid after President Trump appears to have made a deal with Democrats in order to save the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program — claiming he’s abandoning his base and the stringent immigration platform he campaigned on.

Commentator Ann Coulter went on a Twitter tirade Thursday, furious that the president appeared to be reneging on his trademark border wall. “Put a fork in Trump, he’s dead,” the outspoken author and once-fervent Trump ally wrote. “At this point, who DOESN’T want Trump impeached?” And, “If we’re not getting a wall, I’d prefer President Pence,” she added.

To Coulter and others, Trump’s ultimate betrayal came after he met with Democratic congressional leaders Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., to try to save the so-called DREAMers who now face the possibility of deportation after Trump’s decision last week to rescind the program put in place by his predecessor, former President Obama.

Democrats on Wednesday night said the deal they made with Trump didn’t include funding for Trump’s border wall. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders soon tweeted that “excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to.” However, the president himself seemed to contradict that on Thursday when told reporters that “the wall will come later,” but insisted it wasn’t being abandoned altogether.

Trump underscored that the roughly 800,000 people who would be affected were brought here as children through “no fault of their own.” But one of the bills pushed by Democrats would allow a path for citizenship for those affected — something overwhelmingly opposed by the president’s base. And the fact that DACA was being taken up before anything to address the border wall or border security also inflamed the right wing.

Amid the backlash, Trump insisted to reporters, “We’re not looking at citizenship. We’re not looking at amnesty. We’re looking at allowing people to stay here.”

Ultimately, the specter of a deal on immigration with “Chuck and Nancy” — after caving last week on the debt ceiling and government funding, over the objections of GOP congressional leaders — seemed to be the final straw for many.

“This is not what we voted for,” conservative radio host Laura Ingraham said on her program. “We voted for someone who could do a good deal for the American man and woman.”

One of Ingraham’s callers, Michael from Georgia, lamented that Trump had “duped us.”

“That swamp he was gonna drain… he has jumped into that swamp,” the caller argued.

A caller from Arizona named Jody told Ingraham she was suffering from PTSD — “Pelosi Trump Schumer Disorder. I am done if they don’t build the wall.”

Late Wednesday night after news of the deal broke, Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity seemed to suggest Trump had been duped by Pelosi and Schumer, but that if he capitulated, it would be “over” for him.

Breitbart News’s website — run by Trump’s former chief strategist Steve Bannon — blasted out headlines like “Trump Caves on DACA, Wants ‘Quick’ Amnesty for 800K Illegal Aliens” and “Families of Illegal Alien Murder Victims Confused, Angered by Possible DACA Deal.” It also highlighted a trending topic on Twitter: #AmnestyDon.

On Breitbart’s daily Sirius XM show, Tea Party Patriots leader Jenny Beth Martin said that if a deal does go through, Trump is no different than his despised former rival.

“We voted for Donald Trump because we wanted something different than what Hillary Clinton was gonna give this country… and the deal that we heard coming out of the White House… it’s what we would expect Hillary Clinton to give us,” Martin said.

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, one of the most outspoken anti-immigration members of Congress, immediately blasted the reports of a deal on DACA on Twitter Wednesday night, saying if it was true the president had lost all credibility.

We need the parents of those killed by illegals to come out in force and blast Trump, the Democrats, and the Republican do-nothing Congress.

The pressure needs to be relentless. We can’t let this go.

Hillary: White Women Who Voted Against Her Pressured by Brothers, Fathers

HILLARY SEZ SHE WUZ ROBBED.

So much failure, so many explanations.

Daily Caller

Hillary Clinton has an explanation for why women — white women, in particular — voted against her last November: they caved in to pressure from their husbands, fathers, boyfriends and male bosses.

Clinton made the excuse during an interview with NPR’s Rachel Martin during a promotional tour of her book, “What Happened.”

In the interview, Clinton was asked why, given that she was the first female presidential candidate, she fared worse than expected among female voters.

In typical Clinton fashion, she deflected the blame, suggesting that women who voted against her were somehow manipulated by men in their lives. She also claimed that “sexism” from supporters of Bernie Sanders might have played a part in her poor showing among female voters.

“You yourself in the book acknowledge that a good number of young women didn’t vote for you, which is presumably not a sexist choice. They just weren’t inspired by your message,” NPR’s Martin said to Clinton.

THEY DON’T LOOK BULLIED TO ME.

Trump Treason? Alleged Deal with Democrats Allows “Dreamers ” to Stay

UNPINNED 9/14/2017. PINNED TO THE TOP OF THE HOMEPAGE. SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWEST POSTS.

There’s significant disagreement about the breaking news that President Trump has struck a deal with Democrats to amnesty what would appear to be 800,000 so-called Dreamers. In reality, once they have amnesty, the door opens for millions more via a court ruling.

Here’s the story from the AP, followed by some views that claim that Trump has betrayed his base, with others dissenting.

All I can say is that if Trump has struck a deal with the swamp creatures that goes soft on DACA, I’d be shocked.

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — The top House and Senate Democrats said Wednesday they had reached agreement with President Donald Trump to protect thousands of younger immigrants from deportation and fund some border security enhancements — not including Trump’s long-sought border wall.

The agreement, the latest instance of Trump ditching his own party to make common cause with the opposition, was announced by Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi following a White House dinner that Republican lawmakers weren’t invited to attend. It would enshrine protections for the nearly 800,000 immigrants brought illegally to this country as kids who had benefited from former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, which provided temporary work permits and shielded recipients from deportation.

Trump ended the program earlier this month and gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix before the statuses of the so-called “Dreamers” begin to expire.

“We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that’s acceptable to both sides,” Pelosi and Schumer said in a joint statement.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders partially disputed their characterization, saying over Twitter that “excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to.”

Either way, it was the second time in two weeks that Trump cut out Republicans to reach a deal with Pelosi and Schumer. A person briefed on the meeting, who demanded anonymity to discuss it, said the deal specifies bipartisan legislation called the DREAM Act that provides eventual citizenship for the young immigrants.

House Republicans would normally rebel over such an approach, which many view as amnesty for law-breakers. It remains to be seen how conservatives’ loyalty to Trump will affect their response to a policy they would have opposed under other circumstances.

The House’s foremost immigration hardliner, GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa, made clear that he, for one, was not happy.

Addressing Trump over Twitter, King wrote that if the reports were true, “Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair. No promise is credible.”

Earlier Wednesday, during a White House meeting with moderate House members from both parties, Trump had urged lawmakers to come up with a bipartisan solution for the “Dreamers.”

“We don’t want to forget DACA,” Trump told the members at the meeting. “We want to see if we can do something in a bipartisan fashion so that we can solve the DACA problem and other immigration problems.”

Foreshadowing what was to take place later that evening, Trump said he would be open to separating the wall issue from the question of the younger immigrants, as long as the wall got dealt with eventually.

At Thursday night’s dinner, “the president was clear he would press for the wall but separate from this agreement,” said Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill.

The apparent deal is the latest example of Trump’s sudden pivot to bipartisanship after months of railing against Democrats as “obstructionist.” He has also urged them to join him in overhauling the nation’s tax code, among other priorities.
