Is the Tide Turning on the Democrats False Claim of Trump’s Collusion with Russia?

So what’s really going on? What’s really at play? And what is at stake? Certainly a number of issues in a multiple-level, multi-dimensional game of divisive partisan politics, international espionage and intrigue, the makings of a rogue state, and a political party that can’t live with the fact it lost the election. And despite the loose, determined to change the outcome by any means necessary. As well as a major case of ‘sore-loosership.’ So what should we be focusing on? Well first, pay close attention to the term “wiretap” – and keep in mind there was no “wiretap” … the NSA doesn’t really use wiretaps. So we’ll talk about that. And don’t lose sight of the Democrats fabricated argument that the Russians in collusion with Donald Trump were trying to influence the outcome of the November 2016 U.S. Elections. Why so? Truth and reality will be the discerning factors here and history will be the judge. With that, let’s first look at history.

Since the 1920s Russian Communists have tried to destabilize U.S. elections, just as they are currently trying to destabilize elections in France. Russian Communists have been very successful in supporting candidates for the U.S. Congress who want to bring down the U.S. Constitutional form of government. Over the last 100-years, Russia promoted the philosophies of candidates in the U.S. that resulted in the election of 70 Democratic members of Congress who are Socialists, Leftists, Communists, Progressives, and Muslims. Disagree, have an issue with that, face the facts, you can easily obtain their names by conducting an online search of Google or other search engine for: Socialists, Communists, Progressives, and or Muslims in the U.S. Congress.

The goal for all elections in the U.S. should be to prevent the Russians, China, other potential hostile groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, and any other foreign power from influencing, interfering, or attempting to affect U.S. Congressional and Presidential elections, and or any other election in the U.S. for that matter. Following the defeat of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party and the left-wing mainstream media establishment have been promoting the Russian conspiracy theory(s) that Russia sought to influence and affect the outcome of the U.S. Election and was the reason why Hillary lost the election. The Why piece of this conspiracy theory is because Donald Trump and members of his campaign and later administration colluded with the Russian government of Vladimir Putin and his subordinate officials. The assertion was and is that the Russians worked at the behest of the Trump Presidential Campaign to hack the Democratic National Committee, to interfere with, and to deny Hillary what she felt was her entitled right to be elected to the presidency. Also of the latest new information late in the evening of March 8, 2017, all of this is for the most part a total ruse and is false. We will discuss here in, based on the most current available information.

The Russian narrative of collusion as postulated and spread by the Obama administration and the Democrat Party is “fake news” — propped up by the mainstream left-wing liberal mainstream media establishment, in order to delegitimize and destroy President Trump, pure and simple. After nearly four-months of investigation, there is absolutely no evidence of collusion or a single source that the press or anyone can identify who can prove any degree of collusion. Further, new information, still being analyzed and completely reported reveals multiple warrants were approved at the request of senior officials inside the Obama administration to collect against the a U.S. Presidential candidate and his campaign which is a clear and distinct violation of multiple areas of U.S. Federal law, to include numerous violations of the Espionage Act, and other directives and policies U.S. Intelligence Community, and misuse of the Federal Intelligence and Surveillance Act (FISA).

In recent weeks and days, the Director of National Intelligence in the Obama administration, James R. Clapper, stated that there has been no evidence that Russia colluded with anyone in the Trump Presidential Campaign Organization, that there is no proof that Russia affected the votes in any state, or that Russia’s actions actually caused Hillary Clinton to lose the election. He further, stated, parsing and paraphrasing his point that there was no “wiretapping” of the Trump Tower in New York City. Which is true, because the FBI didn’t wiretap Mr. Trump and his organization, and no FISA warrant was requested for the FBI to wiretap Trump, because it wouldn’t and by law it couldn’t? So essentially, he was being truthful.

Likewise, FBI Director James Comey, also stated the FBI didn’t conduct wiretaps of the Trump Tower or of Trump himself, because it didn’t, for the same reason. Virtually all of the media liberal and conservative, have fallen for the term “wiretap” which is both a loosely used and misused term as it is being applied to the electronic surveillance of the Trump Tower communications; telephones and computers and other devices. We learned last evening that and additional warrant to investigate the Trump Campaign in New York was also requested in October 2016. While I cannot address the actual capabilities and methods which were used against the Trump organization due to the extremely high-level of classification, I can assure you, it was not by way or wiretap or the FBI or any other law enforcement agency. With both a FISA Warrant and another unidentified form of warrant approved in October 2016, it is more than obvious there was a concerted effort by the Obama administration to present a case based on now false information against Mr. Trump in the final weeks of his election campaign and leading up to the November 2016 Election.

Equally dangerous and as deeply sinister is the former Obama administration along with its association and partnership with many leftist and progressive organizations which have been working closely with Obama’s Organization for America (OFA). The OFA and other groups with massive financial support from George Soros, and lead by Mr. Obama’s former White House Consul and confidant Valerie Jarrett (who reportedly has moved into Obama’s home in Washington) to orchestrate and implement a silent coup d’état, to oust President Trump from office. In fact, Mr. Obama is participating in regular conference calls with his key former aides, as well as making regular calls to coordinate with Democrat leaders in Congress, Democrat Party leaders, and with a number of anti-Trump and liberal grassroots organizations. Organizing for Action (OFA), now combined with Organizing for America, the nonprofit group which was heavily involved in Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, has partnered with a number of newly-formed insurgent style groups such as Resist and the Indivisible Project which conducts “online training” on how to organize and conduct violent protests and riots against President Trump’s agenda.

For Mr. Obama, this next and new chapter of his public service will focus on his core principle of grassroots engagement. This was previewed in his farewell address to the country, and has been certainly animated in his entire career in public life – words and deeds toward his support for liberal and leftist causes, and certainly in establishing anti-American perceptions.

Nevertheless, to try and distract from Mr. Obama’s inclinations to be a antagonistical community organizer, according to Jen Psaki, Mr. Obama’s former communications director, recently said that “Obama’s inclination would be to follow the Bush model as a person, saying; “Since leaving office the former president has tried to emulate the example of George. W. Bush by not commenting on or interfering in actions taken by the new administration. To the contrary, despite his pledge not to interfere in Mr. Trump’s Presidency, Barack Obama has deployed a team of over a dozen operatives to “keep tabs” on the Trump administration in an attempt to preserve his legacy, according to the Huffington Post.

Obama is employing 32,000 Alinsky trained radicals, operating out of 250 offices across the nation, who are being paid by Mr. Soros to sabotage the Trump administration and its agenda. The team headquarters works from an office in Washington, D.C.

Since Donald Trump became the Republican presumptive nominee, numerous sources told several media outlets, such as the Daily Mail that Obama hates Trump and plans to bring down the Trump administration.

Of course, Mr. Obama a master of false persuasion and deceit, can and always puts on a charming face for the media, but his guttural hate for President Trump is evil and sinister. In addition to his organization OFA as previously noted, it is more than obvious that Mr. Obama is overseeing a full-fledged internal government effort to deny President Trump control of the U.S. Government, with the help of thousands of Obama’s rogue political appointees. As I have written about previously, these rogue political operatives still remain deep in positions of leadership within our intelligence agencies and other departments of U.S. Government dealing in national security. For the last 4-months, Obama has showed his true colors, again, in his concerted effort to employ OFA and the mainstream liberal media establishment to falsely allege that Russia colluded with the Trump Campaign to defeat Hillary and to support violent demonstrations in the streets. Again, there is now, no such evidence to prove any involvement or collusion with Moscow or any entity within Vladimir Putin’s regime, nor have the two ever met prior to President Trump being elected.

Further, the slow approval of members of President Trump’s Cabinet by Democrats in the Senate due to the stalling, grandstanding, and filibustering. In addition, their reluctance to approve over 500 other sub-cabinet senior-level Executive Service appointees for positions which require Senate approval, has dampened President Trump’s fill critically important positions in a timely manner. The slowdown has been deliberate and intentionally orchestrated to allow the Obama political appointees to remain in their appointed positions throughout the government and provide time for them to imbed themselves deeper in order to act as an obstructionist type of cancer. The goal is to sabotage and undermine the Trump administration and provide leaks of damaging information to the press that we continue to see every day. Of course, all Obama appointees should have been required to submit their resignation, as is normally the custom following a presidential election, when a new administration comes into office.

So let’s look at how all this worked and how it has played out. In June 2016, it was reported that Obama administration surrogates within the Justice Department and Intelligence Community approached the FISA Court which a request to surveille Donald Trump; the application was rejected by a Federal Judge. In October 2016, the Obama administration Justice Department submitted a second request, although narrower in scope, again to a FISA Court Judge to surveil two Russian Banks that was approved. They were apparently successful with that approval, because in November the New York Times reported that it was learned “thru a wiretap” that General Flynn had spoken to Russian representatives in the course of communicating with over 50 other foreign national security government officials. The New York Times used the term “wiretap” for the first time as related to Mr. Trump and as I have noted while incorrect, it has unfortunately stuck and has been misused by every reporting organization covering this ordeal. Incidentally it was perfectly legal for General Flynn and as part of the transition process of his new job as National Security Advisor to communicate with foreign officials. As an example, it must be noted just for the record that Obama’s representatives were negotiating with Iran in meetings in the country of Oman long before Obama was inaugurated between November 2008 and January 20th 2009. Someone in Justice Department or in one the intelligence agencies leaked to the New York Times, that “a wiretap” had revealed that General Flynn had communicated with a representative of the Russian government — that being the Russian Ambassador to the U.S. in Washington, DC.

On inauguration day, the New York Times reported in a front page story, that The White House received information again from a wiretap, that there was no conclusive evidence of any wrong doing by the Trump Campaign with Russia. That was the second violation of federal law by leakers to the New York Times, who provided highly sensitive information, which is based on how it was gained about General Flynn’s communication with the Russian Ambassador. Under U.S. Federal law, those involved in the leaks of highly classified and sensitive intelligence information to the New York Times should be prosecuted for violating the Espionage Act. Further under the law, when an American’s name is involve, in this case General Flynn, in foreign communications intercepted by the NSA or other U.S. intelligence collection agency, the American’s name must be rescinded and protected from public release.

Yet the New York Times keeps reporting that President Donald Trump has given no proof of a wiretap, of the Trump campaign (again misusing the term); the New York Times refuses to inform its readers that revealing details of a FISA order, again “wiretap” is against federal law and details cannot be revealed to the general public. Certain provisions of the Espionage Act and Federal Law EO 12333, Section 23c allows the President of the United States to conduct electronic surveillance phones without a FISA Warrant (that is known as collecting incidental intelligence); however that is authorized when collecting against international foreign communications where our intelligence capability sweeps and essentially sucks up all phone calls and communication. That is more than likely how the Obama’s Justice Department surveilled Mr. Trump’s phones.

But further, when one of the parties on a foreign phone call involves a U.S. citizen, particularly with the Russian government, in this case the Russian Ambassador, General Flynn’s name must be protected by law. In the case of this particular phone call, the intercept was not be a wiretap and was certainly not by the FBI and not an FBI wiretap, which would have had to have been planned and target either on the Russian Embassy phone lines or the Trump Tower phone lines. The FBI would also have had to know in advance that General Flynn was going to call or receive a call from the Russian Ambassador in order to get a warrant and a wiretap in place. And most importantly, the FBI would have need to have probable cause that General Flynn’s calls to foreign diplomats, Ambassadors, General Officers and other foreign policy leaders were criminal in nature in order get a warrant(s) to conduct any form of wiretap. I challenge anyone to address the crime that was committed. As of this writing, new information reveals there was no wrong doing, no evidence of inappropriate discussions, and most of all nothing to even remotely to lie about to the Vice President.

Further, suspicion of the Obama administration politically driven agenda against the incoming Trump administration is revealed by the following. As I discussed in a previous article, only 17-days before Mr. Obama left office, he changed President Eisenhower’s, tried and true, method of handling very sensitive highly classified signal intelligence. Obama changed the manner in which highly classified and sensitive signal intelligence could be shared by the NSA across the intelligence community by wider dissemination by expanding the scope and nature of the policy directive. One has to wonder why he waited until this point in time; and didn’t make that damaging change during the previous 8-years. By authorizing the NSA to share highly sensitive information with the other 16 U.S. intelligence agencies, Obama allowed too many people access to intelligence that had no need to know. That last minute change by Obama, made it very difficult to track who is currently releasing the classified intelligence information to the media. Ever since Hillary lost the election, intelligence leaks by intelligence agencies have been ongoing and damaging seriously National Security.

The Democrats tried to hide the fact that the Russian Ambassador had meetings in the Obama White House and Valerie Jarret 22 times to advance the extremely dangerous Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement and support Valerie Jarret’s allies in Iran. In addition, 30 Democratic Senators met with Communist diplomats from Russia and China on Capitol Hill to tamp down opposition to, and advance Obama’s dangerous Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement.

It is not far-fetched to report, and there should be no surprise for the American people to learn that the Obama administration instigated the surveillance of the Donald Trump’s Presidential Campaign, by simply reviewing how Obama tried to restrict the rights of American citizens, listed below, and learn how Obama violated the U.S. Constitutional rights of Americans over the last 8-years:

1). The Obama Justice Department “wiretapped” the telephone of James Rosen, a Fox News Channel reporter, in violation of Freedom of the Press.

2). The Obama Justice Department “wiretapped” and compromised the personal information of 28 AP Reporters.

3). Obama’s IRS targeted Conservative Groups in the “Tea Party Scandal” and prevented them from registering as tax free organization to participate in national election; a violation of Freedom of the Right to participate in elections.

4). Obama’s ATF “Operation Fast and Furious Scandal” perpetrated by then Attorney General Eric Holder transferred 2000 weapons to Mexican Drug Cartels was aimed at somehow compromising the right of Americans to purchase weapons from gun dealers in the U.S., in violation of the 2nd Amendment. Holder became the first sitting member of the Cabinet of a U.S. President to be held in contempt of Congress for his actions.

5). When it was discovered that Hillary Clinton had transmitted Top Secret Special Compartment Information (SCI) messages via a private unclassified server located in the basement of her home for 4-years, and that some of the compartmented messages with even higher classifications may have compromised the safety of intelligent assets in foreign countries, and possibly resulted in their deaths, Obama said that he had no problem with her unclassified server. Hillary and Obama were responsible for compromising very sensitive national security information. Hillary’s transmissions may have led to the attack in Benghazi, because Hillary’s intercepted messages insisted on the removal of security for the Libyan Ambassador, leaving the U.S. Mission virtually unprotected.

A review of the duplicity by Obama, Hillary Clinton, Valerie Jarrett, Democratic Senators, and Democratic members of Congress in their meetings with Russians, that was ignored by the left-wing mainstream media establishment for 8-years of the Obama administration. The Democrats can make the below listed of egregious agreements with the Russians, yet the media didn’t accuse them of colluding with Russia. President Trump’s staff is being accused daily of false collusion with the Russian and wild conspiracy theories that have no basis in fact or evidence. When the American people compare the listed information (below) with the few phone calls made by General Flynn in the scope and requirements of his new duties, there should be no doubt about who has been colluding with Russia to the detriment of the United States (listed below are just a few of many):

1).  In 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s illogical and embarrassing Russian Reset, with the Russian Foreign Minister.

2).  In 2012, shortly just prior to the presidential election, Obama while on foreign soil in South Korea was in a bilateral meeting with Putin’s number two, (then Russian President) Dmitry Medvedev). There was an open-mic microphone episode where Obama was overheard saying — as well as being heavily reported — “You tell Vladimir that I’ll have a lot more flexibility after the election.”

3).   Then Russia invaded Crimea, and conquered the first country, since WWII, and then President Obama did absolutely nothing.

4).   Then Russia had their military special operations Spetnaz and their intelligence operators, the FSB in unmarked uniforms attacked Crimea and the Ukraine; Ukraine literally begged the U.S. for defensive weapons, and President Obama did nothing.

5).   Despite the warning of Israel and many other U.S. allies, Obama did nothing when Russia President Putin provided surface to air missiles to protect Iran’s nuclear weapons development facilities, protecting them from military strikes by Israel.

6).   When Putin joined Iran and Assad in killing U.S. trained Sunni freedom fighters throughout Syria, President Obama did nothing.

7).   Obama allowed Hillary Clinton, his Secretary of State, to authorize the transfer of over 20% of the United States’ Uranium stockpile to Russia.

8).   Hillary’s Clinton Foundation in Canada received support from a Putin Front Company and John Podesta received stock and was placed on the Board of Directors of that company following the transfer of the 20 % of the U.S.’s uranium to Russia

As evident, the true “Russian Collusion” is the collusion between Barack Obama, the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton, and the Russians. Mr. Obama approved giving Russia, 20% of the United States uranium production, as a thank you gift for supporting the Iranian Nuclear Weapons Agreement on the international stage, and gave Iran 116 metric tons of U.S. uranium.

Obama’s team used the pretext of Russian interference in the election to justify the approval of a FISA Warrant and as of last night the discovery of another unidentified type of Federal warrant in October 2016 to electronically collect against the Trump Campaign Headquarters in Trump Tower and another Trump Enterprise server in another location in New York City. Secondly, the approval to authorize illegal leaks of highly classified information to the mainstream media who have all along been in cahoots with the Obama administration and the Democrat Party in a corroborated and concerted effort to smear, delegitimize and destroy President Trump and his administration. Third the use of Obama’s OFA and other groups with massive financial support from George Soros and former Obama administration confidants to orchestrate and implement a silent coup d’état, to delegitimize the administration and oust President Trump from office.

As is evident, Mr. Obama continues to oppose the legitimacy of President Trump’s election, opposes the retention of Attorney General Session, and was successful in opposing the retention of General Flynn as the National Security Advisor — despite what has now been revealed and proven late yesterday, based on new information that indicates that there absolutely was no evidence of any wrong doing, illegal activity, or collusion with the Russian government or Russian officials by the Trump Presidential Campaign, Mr. Trump himself, General Flynn and Attorney General Sessions.

As it stands now as of March 8, 2017, based on new information we now know as of late last evening, Mr. Obama, as a result of his Presidential responsibilities, oversight, and certainly his obvious knowledge of his administration’s closely held apparent illegal activities — is the first former occupant of the White House in 240-years to attempt to bring down his successor by sabotaging his campaign and now his administration and its policies and programs in a nearly year-long contrived, planned, and orchestrated effort.  New revelations, still being analyzed as of the preparation of this article for publishing, indicate potential new information and evidence of serious violations under the Espionage Act and other Federal law and statues that govern the use of U.S. national intelligence capabilities, systems and methods, and further serious criminal violations of internal U.S. Intelligence Community policies and directives by the Obama Administration officials and political appointees.
