The Obama Plot to Sabotage Trump
Search Text Case Sensitive  Exact Words  Include Comments

Devin Nunes just set the cat down among the pigeons.

Two days after FBI Director James Comey assured us there was no truth to President Trump’s tweet about being wiretapped by Barack Obama, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said Trump may have had more than just a small point.

The U.S. intelligence community, says Nunes, during surveillance of legitimate targets, picked up the names of Trump transition officials during surveillance of targets, “unmasked” their identity, and spread their names around, virtually assuring they would be leaked.

If true, this has the look and smell of a conspiracy to sabotage the Trump presidency, before it began.

Comey readily confirmed there was no evidence to back up the Trump tweet. But when it came to electronic surveillance of Trump and his campaign, Comey, somehow, could not comment on that.

Which raises the question: What is the real scandal here?

Is it that Russians hacked the DNC and John Podesta’s emails and handed them off to WikiLeaks? We have heard that since June.

Is it that Trump officials may have colluded with the Russians?

But former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and ex-CIA Director Mike Morrell have both said they saw no evidence of this.

This March, Sen. Chris Coons walked back his stunning declaration about transcripts showing a Russia-Trump collusion, confessing, “I have no hard evidence of collusion.”

But if Clapper and Morrell saw no Russia-Trump collusion, what were they looking at during all those months to make them so conclude?

Was it “FBI transcripts,” as Sen. Coons blurted out?

If so, who intercepted and transcribed the conversations? If it was intel agencies engaged in surveillance, who authorized that? How extensive was it? Against whom? Is it still going on?

And if today, after eight months, the intel agencies cannot tell us whether or not any member of the Trump team colluded with the Russians, what does that say of their competence?

The real scandal, which the media regard as a diversion from the primary target, Trump, is that a Deep State conspiracy to bring down his presidency seems to have been put in place by Obamaites, and perhaps approved by Obama himself.

Consider. On Jan. 12, David Ignatius of the Washington Post wrote,

“According to a senior U.S. government official, (Gen. Michael) Flynn phoned Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak several times on Dec. 29, the day the Obama administration announced the expulsion of 35 Russian officials … What did Flynn say?”

Now, on Dec. 29, Flynn, national security adviser-designate, was not only doing his job calling the ambassador, he was a private citizen.

Why was he unmasked by U.S. intelligence?

Who is this “senior official” who dropped the dime on him? Could this official have known how many times Flynn spoke to Kislyak, yet not known what was said on the calls?

That is hard to believe. This looks like a contract hit by an anti-Trump agent in the intel community, using Ignatius to do the wet work.

Flynn was taken down. Did Comey turn his FBI loose to ferret out the felon who had unmasked Flynn and done him in? If not, why not?

In today’s Wall Street Journal, Dan Henninger points anew to a story in The New York Times of March 1 that began:

“In the Obama administration’s last days, some White House officials scrambled to spread information about Russian efforts to undermine the presidential election — and about possible contacts between associates of President-elect Trump and Russians — across the government.”

“This is what they did,” wrote Henninger, quoting the Times:

“At intelligence agencies, there was a push to process as much raw intelligence as possible into analyses, and to keep the reports at a relatively low classification level to ensure as wide a readership as possible across the government — and, in some cases, among European allies.”

For what benign purpose would U.S. intelligence agents spread secrets damaging to their own president — to foreign regimes? Is this not disloyalty? Is this not sedition?

On Jan. 12, writes Henninger, the Times “reported that Attorney General Loretta Lynch signed rules that let the National Security Agency disseminate ‘raw signals intelligence information’ to 16 other intelligence agencies.”

Astounding. The Obamaites seeded the U.S. and allied intel communities with IEDs to be detonated on Trump’s arrival. This is the scandal, not Trump telling Vlad to go find Hillary’s 30,000 missing emails.

We need to know who colluded with the Russians, if anyone did. But more critically, we need to unearth the deep state conspiracy to sabotage a presidency.

So far, the Russia-connection investigation has proven a dry hole. But an investigation into who in the FBI, CIA or NSA is unmasking U.S. citizens and criminally leaking information to a Trump-hating press to destroy a president they are sworn to serve could prove to be a gusher.

As for the reports of Lynch-White House involvement in this unfolding plot to damage and destroy Trump the real question is: What did Barack Obama know, and when did he know it?

  1. On Jan. 12, writes Henninger, the Times “reported that Attorney General Loretta Lynch signed rules that let the National Security Agency disseminate ‘raw signals intelligence information’ to 16 other intelligence agencies.

    That is the smoking gun against the Obama administration. They pushed all the secret privileged conversation data out to their loyal administration troops hopping to quickly find a killer conversation against any Trump person. They were on a true “witch hunt.”

    Without question – the Obama administration intended to use the power of the government to politically assassinate a president elect. Clearly this was an attempted coup.

    Peace — Art

    p.s. There must have been hundreds of people involved – would have Attorney General Loretta Lynch done this on her own – hmm – doubtful.

  3. It’s events like these that reveal the astonishing level of Leftism in the New Media Cartel.

    Everyone plays his or her role in this pageant. The mainstream news media’s entire existence rests on the perception of honesty. Whether that was real or not didn’t matter, it was all about perception.

    Now, we see that no matter how massive the questions about the final days of Obama’s Administration, the News Media Cartel won’t touch it. Instead, they harp on transparently unimportant or even clearly fictional narratives, almost as though they are catering to a segment of the populace interested only in a particular kind of fiction.

    This illustrates the unbridgeable divide in the USA today. Either the Cartel pulls back from its Fake News fictional deluge, or it simply makes those who see it as propaganda distrust every Wolf Cry it emanates.

    Frankly, we’re already there.

    What we are watching is the Central State's managers rendering their fiefdoms irrelevant. The people used to thinking they "run things" never realize that consent is fickle, and if they lose that, they're DONE.

    This is exactly the same as Mainstream Media giants destroying what shreds of credibility still clung to their organizations' corpses with their Fake News.

    This is the same as University administrators openly rendering the value of their diplomas to zero with Fake Majors, Fake Openness, Fake Freedom of Speech, etc..

    Fake News. Fake Educations. Fake Degrees. Fake Foods. Fake Medical Services. Fake Markets. Fake Stocks. Fake Money, Fake Elections....

    ...Fake Government.

    For a century or more, people turned increasingly to the center for life's directions. I think that trend is in process of inverting, and what is distant will become irrelevant and what is near will be all that's relevant.

    Distance and the anonymity of a vast, labyrinthine bureaucracy created indescribable opportunities for graft, corruption, looting, etc., etc. I think all that is slated to change.

    "On Obama, leaving aside his murky personal history (nothing about it has been cleared up, by the way, including his true place of birth) Obama was an empty suit, an actor, not a real president in any sense of the word. He was exactly what an earlier writer said on this site, a moderately intelligent “minority” who had learned to mimic the behavior expected of a “respectable African-American”. He had the intellectual depth of a coffee cup wedded to a typically impressive line of meaningless blather. If he had not lucked into the White House gig he would have been a tap dancer, car thief or homeless person mumbling to himself on some Chicago street corner. His own driving force, if it can be called that, was resentment and rage over his unfortunate mulatto status (a common psychological state in such people). The only interesting thing about the Obama Administration is the identity of the real string pullers behind him."

  10. “And if today, after eight months, the intel agencies cannot tell us whether or not any member of the Trump team colluded with the Russians, what does that say of their competence?”

    As long as Trump/Trump Admin is not clearly, publicly exonerated by Intel agencies/committees:
    A) it means he is not in basic control of his government(assuming investigations are done), to the point of not been able to produce a clear statement by an agency head.
    B) he cannot go on the offensive with any effectiveness, about the leaks or about anything else. He is not driving the narrative either.

    It seems that the Trump admin is not (yet?) nimble at political maneuvering. Maybe too many balls in the air, and politics is not business. They need to improve, and improve fast. Otherwise, they’ll never get to answer Buchanan’s last question on what and when did Obama know.

    It shows they’re much stupider than expected. Or just less interested in keeping their jobs. Yes, Trump is strong enough to clean it up. It’s actually one of the easier jobs on his desk. Fire them all, in several rounds of purges. Use each purge to extract more info from the ones who want their jobs (i.e., get them all to rat each other out), plan the next purge.

    The question is merely if Trump wants to go nuclear on the National Security Apparatus. I know I would. I’d be firing them so fast, their pocket protectors would spin.

  24. It remains to be seen whether President Trump can get the Deep State under control. Ultimately, the question is he or them. The whole Russian spin was initiated by the Obama and Clinton gang. So far, none of the agencies came up with a single evidence, which equals a disgrace of all the intelligent services. Another scandal are the fawning media that do the Dems bidding. Instead of investigating Clinton’s and Obama’s criminal behavior they are accomplices in a coup against a legitimate president. If this conspiracy doesn’t accomplish their goal, there remains still the JFK “solution”.

  25. When the New York Times broke a bizarre story March 1 regarding Obama ordering intelligence agencies to “preserve” intelligence on Russian hacking back in December of last year – it was a huge red flag for me.

    First of all, an order to preserve intelligence is ludicrous on the face of it, as if intelligence was something that automatically self-destructed absent a Presidential order. Something else was obviously going on and the NYT was, as usual, leading the disinformation campaign.

    That was a guarantee of massive leaks and endless idiotic news-cycle attacks on Trump. The purpose of the NYT fake news release was to get out in front of something they knew would be found – and muddy it up with this stupid Russia cover.

    It’s gotten so surreal lately I don’t have hope any justice will be served here.
