How Team Obama Tried To Hack The Election

New revelations have surfaced that the Obama administration abused intelligence during the election by launching a massive domestic-spy campaign that included snooping on Trump officials.

The irony is mind-boggling: Targeting political opposition is long a technique of police states like Russia, which Team Obama has loudly condemned for allegedly using its own intelligence agencies to hack into our election.

The revelations, as well as testimony this week from former Obama intel officials, show the extent to which the Obama administration politicized and weaponized intelligence against Americans.

Thanks to Circa News, we now know the National Security Agency under President Barack Obama routinely violated privacy protections while snooping through foreign intercepts involving US citizens — and failed to disclose the breaches, prompting the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court a month before the election to rebuke administration officials.

Black College Leader: Trump A Step Up From Obama

Blacks didn’t fare so well under America’s first black* president.

“Sadly — and it pains me to say this — over the last decade, black folk, in the era of Obama, have lost ground in every major economic category,” liberal black broadcaster Tavis Smiley said in 2016.

During Obama’s tenure, black Americans below the poverty line rose to 26%; real median income dropped; food-stamp recipients soared 58%; home ownership dropped down 9%, National Reviewreported.

Still, many black leaders praise Barack Obama for his efforts to advance the lives of African Americans. But not Walter Kimbrough, president of Dillard University in New Orleans, a historically black school. Kimbrough says leaders of historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) “are noticing that Trump is a step up from Obama,” the Los Angeles Times reports.

NBC Reporter: This White House Leaks Like No Other

An NBC national security reporter said Friday night that there are is a pattern of “incredible and unusual leaks in this administration” that he’s never seen before.

Ken Dilanian made the comments when discussing The Washington Post article that cites U.S. officials referring to intercepts of the Russian ambassador saying that Trump son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner wanted to set up a secret communications channel with the Kremlin. This is one of many stories relying on damaging leaks to come out during the Trump administration.

“One other thing that people are remarking about this story is that whoever leaked this story to The Washington Post was willing to disclose that the United States was monitoring the communications of the Russian ambassador back to Moscow. That’s really unusual and it’s a damaging leak. There’s no doubt about it,” Dilanian said.

Why did Trump say that Obama spied on him? Because he did.

What is the likelihood that the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Associated Press, USA Today or other major news outlets will cover the fact that the Obama administration repeatedly violated the law by spying on Americans from 2011 until they were almost out of office, when they finally admitted it?

Is it any surprise that an administration that would target political opponents through the IRS would do this, or an administration that would start monitoring a political opponent four months prior to the election? Does anyone think they didn’t spy on other Republicans running against Hillary? Or for that matter, her socialist challenger, Bernie Sanders?

So far, after ten months of monitoring and investigations on the Russia-hacked-the-election brouhaha, there is still no evidence of a crime or collusion. But the media is still all in for that one. Why haven’t we seen any media monitoring of Hillary, her staff, or John Podesta, since we know they had Russian connections? If the intelligence community and the Obama administration were concerned about collusion, why are they only concerned about Republicans? Why haven’t James Clapper, John Brennan, James Comey, or Barack Obama been asked why they targeted only Republicans for monitoring?

Isn’t the media curious?

Whistleblower: DHS Knew MS-13 Gang Members Were Part Of Illegal Immigrant Surge 

The Obama administration knowingly let in at least 16 admitted MS-13 gang members who arrived at the U.S. as illegal immigrant teenagers in 2014, a top senator said Wednesday, citing internal documents that showed the teens were shipped to juvenile homes throughout the country.

Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said a whistleblower turned over Customs and Border Protection documents from 2014 detailing the 16 people who were caught crossing the border.

“CBP apprehended them, knew they were MS-13 gang members, and they processed and disbursed them into our communities,” Mr. Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, said.

If Russian Interference Was So Awful, Why Didn’t The Obama Administration Do Anything About It?

This morning former CIA Director Michael Morell had an interesting question for the Obama administration on today’s episode of CBS This Morning. If Russian interference during the 2016 election was such a serious problem, what did they do to stop it? Morell, who was acting CIA director prior to John Brennan’s confirmation during Obama’s second term, noted that his successor said that interference from Russia was a big problem, and that he contacted his Russian counterparts to tell them to cut it out. Russia obviously ignored him.

FISA Court Finds “Serious Fourth Amendment Issue” In Obama’s “Widespread” Illegal Searches Of American Citizens

A newly released court order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) found that the National Security Agency, under former President Obama, routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall.  In describing the violations, the FISA court said the illegal searches conducted by the NSA under Obama were “widespread” and created a “very serious Fourth Amendment issue.”

These new discoveries come from a recently unsealed FISA court document dated April 26, 2017 and center around a hearing dated October 26, 2017, just days before the 2016 election, in which the FISA court apparently learned for the first time of “widespread” and illegal spying on American citizens by the NSA under the Obama administration.

“The October 26, 2016 Notice disclosed that an NSA Inspector General (IG) review…indicated that, with greater frequency than previously disclosed to the Court, NSA analysts had used U.S.-person identifiers to query the result of Internet “upstream” collection, even though NSA’s section 702 minimization procedures prohibited such queriesthis disclosure gave the Court substantial concern.”
