Perhaps the biggest mistake in Donald Trump’s tweet about being wiretapped is that he stated Barack Obama had wiretapped him. It would have been more accurate for him to state that his campaign was the target of surveillance by the government.
Liberals are quick to jump on the claim that Obama did it and then extrapolate that into it did not happen. One does not mean the other. Obama certainly did not wiretap Trump but Trump was surveilled in some fashion. And Obama knew of the surveillance possibly before but more likely after the contents of the surveillance were compiled.
That would be JUST before they were illegally released to the media. You know, right before Obama walked out the door. You have to know that dropping a turd like this in Trump’s path is exactly the kind of thing Obama would do. Let us not forget that Obama (and yes it was he) used the IRS as a weapon against conservative groups. The reason things are compartmented and hidden and obstructed is because the trail leads right to King Barry Obama.
But back on point.
For about eight months prior to the election there were media reports that Trump was being surveilled. The New York Times (and possibly several other outlets) mentioned it and Hillary mentioned it as well. There certainly had to be some kind of surveillance for them to know what was being targeted. In one case it was the servers belonging to Trump. It is true those servers were looked at and it is true someone told Hillary and it is true she mentioned it. All these things are true so it is true there was some level of surveillance going on. It is also important to note that the Russian angle came up DURING the campaign and Hillary continually used it to attack Trump. It appears as if she had inside information regarding surveillance and was using it to attack her opponent.
As far as the later episodes it is quite possible, and more than likely, that Trump associates got caught up in surveillance of Russians. There has been no indication any of those folks colluded or did anything wrong, just that they had contact. Some of them had business entities in Russia and contact with Russians was not abnormal. FBI Director Comey said that his agency is investigating (as it has been for months) any connections between Trump campaign folks and the Russians but that NOTHING (so far) has been found.
The denials about wiretapping appear to be the denial that Obama had anything to do with them (or more accurately ordered them). All denials are that there is nothing to support President Trump’s claim (which was that Obama did it). Has there been a flat out denial that there were any wiretaps AT ALL?
General Flynn got caught up in the surveillance of Russians. It appears he did nothing wrong but he then lied about it to the Vice President and that led to his resignation. How did anyone know Flynn spoke with the Russian ambassador? They knew because they were listening. The US was eavesdropping on the Russians and Flynn got caught up in the recording. Whoever exposed this and made his name public broke the law. Remember when the government told us that they were only concerned with wiretapping foreigners that made calls or who were called by Americans and that our privacy would be protected? Remember when they said they were not interested in our part of the conversation? That seems to have changed and it changed when Obama could use the information for political gain.
Obama most certainly did not wiretap Trump’s phones and it is highly unlikely that Obama ordered such a thing (he would not want his fingerprints on it) but Trump was surveilled as evidenced by the months of media reports and Hillary’s revelations. It is also true that Trump’s people were surveilled as evidenced by the leaked transcripts of conversations, particularly those relating to General Flynn.
It is highly likely that Obama got that information prior to departing the White House and dropped it off on the way out the door. Again, he probably did not leak it but he provided it to the person who did.
There is absolutely no way in the world that Obama did not know.
He might not have fingerprints on it but he surely knew.
So Trump did not express it correctly but he was on the right track.
Never surrender, never submit.

You know Cordozar better by the stage name Snoop Dogg, an allegedly talented rapper who usually sounds like someone hitting a sack of (stoned) cats with a stick. His greatest ability seems to be that of using the words f*ck, motherf****r and nigga in his “songs”.
The reality is he has very little real talent and is usually in a drug induced state when he is awake.
Cordozar is also a black man with an attitude who thinks the deck is stacked against the black folks (who he calls niggas). To Cordozar life is unfair and guys like Donald Trump, who are rich (and white), get away with anything they want. He also believes that there are lots of black folks in jail for possession of drugs (mostly weed) who have been there a long time while the white guys who sold it to them are out in society still pushing those drugs. Cordozar must think none of these drug dealers are people of color.
Yes, to Cordozar there is white privilege and black folks, the downtrodden like him, are getting ridden dirty. Really?
Hey Cordozar, you have been arrested an awful lot of times for illegal possession of a firearm (handguns) and have not spent much time in jail. You have been placed on probation or forced to make public service videos or had to do community service but you damn sure do not end up in jail where you belong for those gun infractions.
There are a lot of people, black and white alike, who are rotting in jail for illegal possession of a firearm and they did not get arrested as many times as you. How many times have you been arrested for drug possession and how many countries have you been banned from, for at least some period of time, because of your illegal behavior?
I can’t seem to find any report that indicates you are spending 10 or 20 years in a jail while white guys are walking the streets. Truth be told, your sorry ass is walking the streets while many white folks are in jail for far less. So please don’t give me any BS about privilege.
In Cordozar’s latest video (more garbage) he pulls a gun on a Trump look alike made up like a clown. To Cordozar it seems like a perfectly OK thing to do as the Trump look alike is referred to as a “f***ing clown.” You see, to Cordozar anyone he does not like should be shot. This is probably why his gangster ass has been arrested for illegal possession of firearms SO MANY TIMES.
Cordozar is a member of the Nation of Islam and has praised its leader, the equally insane Louis Farrakhan. To put that in perspective, Cordozar has praised Louis Farrakhan, an idiot who wants to eliminate Jews and who rails against white people, but in his video pulls a gun on a Donald Trump look alike and calls him a f***ing clown because, well I guess because it is Trump. Perhaps it is because he is white, oh say it isn’t so Dogg Pooh. I guess Cordozar is bitter because he voted for Clinton and Trump beat her like a rented mule.
The real clown in all of this is Cordozar Doggy Pooh who thinks he has a voice in the world. His message resonates to the low information voters (and non-voters) and the undereducated who listen to his music. He appeals to those he inspires to be gangsta and do what he sings about. His lifestyle inspires the undereducated to act like thugs and to break the law (thus becoming felons and losing the right to vote or possess firearms, like hero Cordozar).
Then when they end up in jail Cordozar can cry like a little punk about white privilege and the racist system that sent these poor little gangstas to jail.
In other words, Cordozar was taught to play the victim card. Let’s hope the Secret Service plays the Trump card and looks into this violent video aimed at the president.
Cordozar should expect nothing less. Don’t you think that is what he would have wanted if a video like this were made during the Obama reign of terror and it showed Obama at the wrong end of a firearm?
I only want to make sure Cordozar gets the equality he claims does not exist.
Never surrender, never submit.

It is no secret that politicians in general and Democrats in particular are hypocrites. They rail against something the other party is doing until they themselves do it and then it is OK. They are quick to condemn a person who has a misstep and just as quick to accept the same kind of misstep by someone in their own party. As an example we can take Schmuck Schumer who cried when he discussed how mean and hateful President Trump’s Executive Order curtailing immigration from 7 nations that have little to no functioning government or are state sponsors of terror. This is the same Schumer who only a few years ago claimed we might have to temporarily halt immigration. No tears then…
It is how politics works and it is why Congress has such a low approval rating.
Nancy Pelosi is no different. She talks out of both sides of her mouth and can contradict herself in the same paragraph. She is a moron who has no moral or ethical compass (how does her husband get so rich off government contracts) and she does not care that her idiocy is in full view for all to see.
This past weekend a Democrat Representative made a disgusting joke about Kellyanne Conway saying how “familiar she looked on her knees” a reference to the photo of her sitting on her feet on a couch in the Oval Office. Asked about this Nancy Pelosi said she was not aware of what he said but was more worried about a vile guy like Trump being in office. What she stated was; “But I do, every day, marvel at the fact that somebody who said the gross and crude things that President Trump said — he wouldn’t even be allowed in a frat house, and he’s in the White House.”
She was referring to the recording of Trump that everyone is familiar with. I have a few things to say about the recording of Trump. The first is that it was a private conversation, or at least he thought it was. He stated that in private to another person. I spent enough time in sports and in the Army to know what guys say when it is guy talk (women are just as bad). I would not want some of the things I said then to be the thing people judge me by today. The other important thing is Trump never stated he actually grabbed women by a body part, only that he could.
None of this makes what he said any less vile but it needs to be put in perspective. It seems to me that Pelosi should have said what Donald Trump said was in a private conversation and we should not pay attention to it and respect his privacy.
What? Am I some kind of nut? (possibly)
Well, Nancy Pelosi did not find Bill Clinton receiving oral sex from an intern (who was around 21 years of age) in the Oval Office to be disgusting and that he should never be in the White House. Pelosi and many other Democrats were of the mind that it was a private matter between Clinton and his wife. Even after Billy BJ Clinton was caught in the lie and forced to admit he did in fact have sex with that woman and then lied about it Pelosi and the Democrats supported him. None of them thought he should be out of office or never let in to begin with. In fact, Pelosi (who voted NO on all counts) and nearly every other Democrat in the House voted NOT to impeach Clinton. It is important to note Clinton was impeached for perjury and misuse of power, not for having sex. These liberals still voted NO so they have little credibility.
No, they supported the sexual predator and Hillary Clinton made it her mission to destroy any woman who claimed Bill acted inappropriately. One would think Pelosi would have been as outraged by Clinton ACTUALLY having an adulterous affair as she was at Trump saying what you COULD do to women because of fame.
Pelosi is like the rest of the liberal twits. She does not care about the country, only her party. She protects disgusting vulgar people all the time (Clinton and Cedric Richmond, the guy who made the Conway Joke) and she ignores unacceptable behavior from people in her party. She is a hypocrite who uses her position to enrich her family while enslaving the American people.
President Trump might not be a person Pelosi likes but I think she is going to find out he is not going to back down.
She might wish she had kept her mouth shut when this is all said and done.
Quite honestly, Pelosi’s selective outrage is laughable.
Never surrender, never submit.

It is easy to be brave and take a stand when there are no consequences. We see this all the time in politics when a member of the House or Senate is up for reelection and there is a vote on something that person’s constituents do not like. After the numbers are counted if the measure will pass without that member’s vote then the leader gives permission for the member to vote against the issue thus painting a picture of a person who works for and listens to the people.
It is all hogwash. It is political theater at its finest and the Republicans in Congress have their theatrics on full display. There is no way for them to hide it like is normally done because all of them are shown for the hypocritical cowards they are.
What am I talking about, you ask?
Well, it is about Obamacare. You see, a long time ago that horrible bill passed without any Republican support. Republicans told us if we wanted to do anything about it we needed to put them in the majority. We did that in the House and gave them a commanding lead. House Republicans, “emboldened” by their new majority passed a few bills to repeal Obamacare. But they went nowhere so we were told that we needed to give them the Senate as well.
We did just that so now, with the House and the Senate, Republicans went about passing bills to repeal Obamacare. Those went nowhere because of procedure and because Obama, as president, would veto any bill that repealed his socialized medicine law. Give us the White House Republicans cried and we will get rid of Obamacare. We will repeal it because it is no good but we need the White House.
So we gave them the White House and suddenly there are no repeal bills. There is talk of fixing Obamacare or repealing and REPLACING it with something else. There is talk of everything except repealing it and there have been no bills introduced.
It should be very easy. The Republicans could introduce the bill they last voted on when Obama was in office. They all vote on that repeal bill and once it passes both chambers it goes to Trump to be signed into law, presto-chango the law is repealed.
But you see, that would require courage. It took no courage to pass bills repealing Obamacare when the Democrats had the Senate and the White House. Republicans could talk tough and pass a bill repealing Obamacare knowing full well it would never make it to law. There was no risk but lots of reward. The members could go home and tell people they voted to repeal but doggone it without control of Congress and the White House they just couldn’t do it. Look, we tried hard and we passed a full repeal and by golly if we had control Obamacare would be on the ash heap of history where it belongs, can you support me with $25, or $50 or even $75 as I fight the evil Obama machine?
They were so courageous when there was nothing to lose and when the bills could not possibly pass.
But now that Donald Trump won and Republicans have full control of the government these brave warriors have put the brakes on and are taking a longer look. They are also discussing ways to REPLACE Obamacare rather than just repealing it as they promised when they had nothing to lose.
They talk now of people who will lose coverage and angry voters who might vote them out of office if they repeal this albatross. They are being more cautious because now there will be consequences for their actions. It is easy to talk tough when you have no risk, or as Joe Biden might say, skin in the game.
Once the risk is there the risk averse Republicans cower in the corner with their thumbs in their mouths.
What they need to fear is the backlash of the voters who supported them and voted for them BECAUSE they said they would repeal Obamacare. What they should fear is the base of voters who will primary them or vote for their Democrat opponent if they do not do as they promised and as they did when there was no risk and vote to REPEAL (and not replace) Obamacare.
They can give it a sunset date so that people on the exchanges have time to transition but they MUST repeal this thing or they will pay a political price.
My Congress critter is Dr. Andy Harris. I will NOT vote for him for anything (primary or general should he win the primary) if Obamacare is not repealed.
I don’t want to hear excuses or be told I don’t understand or that it is complicated or any other BS from Harris or any other Republican.
All you need to do is sack up and vote for the very last repeal bill you passed when Obama was there to save you from actually accomplishing the task.
All you have to do is pass the repeal bill and sent it to President Trump to sign.
Ann Coulter has an idea on how to replace it
Never surrender, never submit.

Several counties in Oregon have passed their own regulations regarding firearms and those regulations are in reaction to the gun control laws Oregon passed (Oregon Firearms Safety Act). The counties are basically saying they will not comply with state law and that they will do things their own way.
The state has supremacy in this issue and it will get dicey but the counties are saying they are Second Amendment Sanctuary Counties. They point out the state is a sanctuary state for illegal immigrants and if the state can ignore the law and be a sanctuary for that issue then the counties can ignore the state law and be sanctuary for firearms owners.
This seems perfectly reasonable to me and I can’t see how a state that ignores the law can be upset that a county has ignored a law. I do understand that liberals think they are the only ones who can ignore the law and that laws only apply to the other guy but that is just their senility showing.
If we are forced to accept that it is legal to have a sanctuary city or state for illegal immigrants then we must accept that sanctuary can be granted by any city or state (or county) for any reason.
In Oregon the liberals want to provide sanctuary for illegal aliens in violation of the Constitution and federal law. The counties want to provide sanctuary for firearms owners IN ACCORDANCE with the Constitution. Funny how following the Constitution is alien to liberals. They sure try to use the Constitution when they want to make their case though. Does anyone see the irony of this statement coming from a sanctuary state?
These county ordinances allow sheriffs to ignore this law – which gun advocates see as unconstitutional. KTVZ
The concern of the liberals in Oregon, who obviously do not understand the Constitution or firearms, is that people get hurt with guns. The largest number of people harmed with firearms is those who commit suicide. The linked article makes it clear that suicides account for the largest number of gun related deaths in Oregon.
The state is worried that someone might buy a gun and use it to kill himself. If a person decided to do that then he only harmed one person (physically) and that would be himself. If any person can’t get a gun then another way to commit suicide will be found.
The funny thing is Oregon has a Death with Dignity Act that allows doctor assisted suicide. So if you are terminally ill you can get a doctor to help you off yourself but if you just want to die you can’t shoot yourself. I guess the state does not want you taking money out of the hands of suicide doctors.
In any event, this Oregon case is just another in a long line of hypocrisies liberals are known for. Add the sanctuary for illegals but not gun owners up there with abortion is OK but the death penalty is murder.
Liberalism is a mental disorder.
Never surrender, never submit.
