    Trump exposed the Obamunist attempt to "wiretap" his campaign....all the Leftists laughed....and were outraged that he targeted their messiah.


    The Trump tweet:

    "Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!"

    6:35 AM - 4 Mar 2017




    1. The short story: Trump was correct, the NYTimes, WaPo, and every Liberal cable show....split hairs to make it seem that Trump was wrong.
    Read on:


    2. Here's the spin that the Washington Post put on the story:
    "This may be the worst defense of Trump’s Obama-wiretapped-me claim — literally
    ...chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, which means he's in charge of investigating President Trump's evidence-free allegation that President Barack Obama wiretapped his offices.

    But Nunes doesn't seem particularly worried that the current president accused the former president of a crime. Echoing so many Republican defenses of Trump's tweets, he suggested Tuesday that Trump's allegation simply shouldn't be taken at face value.

    Here's what Nunes said:

    The president is a neophyte to politics. He’s been doing this a little over a year. And I think a lot of the things that he says, you guys sometimes take literally. " Analysis | This may be the worst defense of Trump’s Obama-wiretapped-me claim — literally


    3. Looks like Trump was dead wrong?

    WaPo spin: "... Trump's allegation simply shouldn't be taken at face value."
    The actual quote has a different meaning: "....I think a lot of the things that he says, you guys sometimes take literally. "
    The 'literally' refers to the term 'wiretap.'
    It should be understood to mean 'placed under surveillance.'


    4. But the facts are these:

    "The FBI investigated a Trump server in its Russia probe, but no charges are expected by John Solomon and Sara Carter

    The months-long [Obama] FBI counterintelligence investigation into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential campaign briefly investigated a computer server tied to Donald Trump's businesses near the end of the election but has not gathered evidence of election tampering to date that would warrant criminal charges against any of the president’s associates, Circa has learned." FBI probe of Donald Trump and Russia during election yielded no evidence of crimes


    Get that???

    "....the [Obama] FBI ... briefly investigated a computer server tied to Donald Trump's businesses near the end of the election..."



    sur·veil
    sərˈvāl/
    verb

    past tense: surveilled; past participle: surveilled
    keep (a person or place) under surveillance.
    as in "he deployed FBI agents to surveil the offices of those companies"
    Google



    Trump was correct with respect to his being surveilled by the Obama administration.

    every day that goes by demonstrates to me that we may be too far gone as a country

    Sure, there are examples of bad behavior and bad actions by "conservative groups & individuals"

    But the amazing hate & violence is by and large coming from the left

    And we do not have a trustworthy media; their agenda is more important to them than the actual truth

    So true......we are gazing into the abyss....and, as Nietzsche said....the abyss gazes back.
    They control the media, the schools, every avenue of dissemination of information....and the less honorable, the less astute, the less concerned, march lock-step with them.


    And so ends the noble experiment in self-governance.

    After everything that has been exposed about Obie's spying, you still cling to a falsehood.

    Could be a mental illness.

    Your deflection is noted and discarded. Take your issues up with the 17 U.S. agencies which have confirmed Russia did indeed hack the election. Hell, even Trump encouraged them.
