Several things in the news yesterday point to a concerted effort to undermine and destroy the Trump Presidency even before it has a chance to begin. Some see what’s happening as a scheme to install Hillary Clinton. Others, a strategy to preserve Barack Obama’s Iran deal. Still others think there are mighty secrets about failures in Benghazi and the rise of ISIS. I wouldn’t put anything past the totally corrupted radicals that ran our government over the last eight years or some of the career bureaucrats and analysts in government departments. Information in the links that follow is disturbing if for no other reasons than to point out how desperate the left and left elite republicans must be.
According to PJ Media Obama expanded the powers of the NSA to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections. Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch signed the new rules, permitting the N.S.A. to disseminate “raw signals intelligence information,” on Jan. 3, after the director of national intelligence, James R. Clapper Jr., signed them on Dec. 15, according to a 23-page, largely declassified copy of the procedures. Now what could Obama and Lynch been thinking? It certainly wasn’t your privacy or mine. Instead it is something much more sinister and disturbing.
Next up is a whistle blower that spoke with Breitbart:
William Binney, a former highly placed NSA official turned whistleblower, contended in an exclusive interview today that the National Security Agency (NSA) is “absolutely” monitoring the phone calls of President Donald Trump. … Binney further contended the NSA may have been behind a data leak that might have revealed that Michael Flynn, Trump’s national security adviser, allegedly misled Vice President Mike Pence and other Trump administration officials about the contents of his phone calls with Russia’s ambassador to Washington.
The American Thinker reports…
…the latest name to emerge in the spreading swamp of connivers who did Flynn in this week is none other than the Obama administration’s former National Security Council deputy adviser for strategic communications, Ben Rhodes.
According to a report in the Washington Free Beacon, Flynn’s resignation:
… is the culmination of a secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Donald Trump’s national security apparatus and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who described to the Washington Free Beacon a behind-the-scenes effort by these officials to plant a series of damaging stories about Flynn in the national media. The effort, said to include former Obama administration adviser Ben Rhodes[.]
The Beacon goes on to discuss Rhodes’s interest in preserving the atrocious Iran deal fiasco as part of the Obama legacy.
Andrew Pudzer, Trumps nominee for the Department of Labor withdrew his name today. None of the things they accused him of were true; he didn’t need or want the headaches.
Mediaite has a bit of fun with CNN’s Sally Kohn’s plan to unseat the administration: 1. Impeach Trump & Pence, 2. Constitutional crisis, 3. Call special election, 4. Ryan v Clinton, 5. President Clinton. She is delusional to say the least.
All of this is enough to make your head spin, which is exactly what they expect and want. But I doubt if this is what the America people want. Protest is one thing, sabotage is quite another. Before you decide you should also read Powerline:
The Democrats are trying to make a scandal out of the fact that one or more people associated with the Trump presidential campaign had telephone conversations with one or more representatives of the Russian government prior to Trump’s inauguration. Is there anything wrong with that? Not as far as we know. The CIA/NSA leakers have declined to say anything about the content of the conversations, so they must have been benign. Let’s release the tapes and eliminate all doubt, and then let’s fire the leakers and, if appropriate, send them to prison.
But in the meantime, let’s not forget an infinitely bigger scandal: in 2008, while he was running for the presidency, Barack Obama deliberately undermined American foreign policy by secretly encouraging Iran’s mullahs to hold out until he became president, because he would be easier to deal with than President George Bush. I wrote about the Obama scandal here: “HOW BARACK OBAMA UNDERCUT BUSH ADMINISTRATION’S NUCLEAR NEGOTIATIONS WITH IRAN.” Check out the original post for links. Here it is:
In 2008, the Bush administration, along with the “six powers,” was negotiating with Iran concerning that country’s nuclear arms program. The Bush administration’s objective was to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. On July 20, 2008, the New York Times headlined: “Nuclear Talks With Iran End in a Deadlock.” What caused the talks to founder? The Times explained:
Iran responded with a written document that failed to address the main issue: international demands that it stop enriching uranium. And Iranian diplomats reiterated before the talks that they considered the issue nonnegotiable.
The Iranians held firm to their position, perhaps because they knew that help was on the way, in the form of a new president. Barack Obama had clinched the Democratic nomination on June 3. At some point either before or after that date, but prior to the election, he secretly let the Iranians know that he would be much easier to bargain with than President Bush. (continues)
There’s a devious cabal in DC. Stay tuned, this story is just beginning and it could get really ugly before all is said and done.
