wiretapping: Has dear olde Saint Obama done it before?

Obama's history of wire tapping

Obama’s history of wire tapping

Has  dear olde Saint Obama engaged in wiretapping other times — before Trump?

Former Ohio Democrat Congressman Dennis Kucinich defended President Donald Trump’s claims about being wiretapped by the Obama administration during the 2016 presidential election.

“It’s important because there are people who are saying about President Trump’s claim, ‘Oh, it could never happen.’ Well, frankly, it happened to me,” Kucinich told Fox News on Friday. Also on Friday, the former congressman penned an article on Fox News describing the incident — a phone call in his congressional office from a foreign leader had been tapped in 2011, and he listened to a recording of it in 2015.

“Members of Congress ought to be aware that my experience was that my phone wasn’t safe in a congressional office,” Kucinich, who served in the House of Representatives from 1997 to 2013, said. “Now, if they can do that to a member of Congress, they can certainly do it to a presidential candidate, and they can do it to private citizens as well.”

The former congressman learned that he had been wiretapped two years after leaving office, when he was approached by The Washington Times. “The newspaper’s investigative reporters called me, saying they had obtained a tape of a sensitive telephone conversation that they wanted me to verify,” Kucinich wrote. “When I met them at a Chinese restaurant in Washington, they played back audio of a call I had taken in my D.C. congressional office four years earlier.”Kucinich recalled that the call had been from Saif el-Islam Qaddafi, a high-ranking official in Libya’s government and a son of the country’s ruler, Moammar Qaddafi. “At the time I was leading efforts in the House to challenge the Obama administration’s war against Libya,” the former congressman recalled. “The Qaddafi government reached out to me because its appeals to the White House and the State Department to forestall the escalating aggression had gone unanswered.”

work from Obama’s new home: Valerie Jarrett

valarie jarrett

Personal life of Valarie Jarrett:   She married and divorced a doctor and has one daughter.  In 1983 Jarrett married William Robert Jarrett, son of Chicago Sun-Times reporter Vernon Jarrett. She attributes her switch from a private to a public career to their daughter Laura’s birth and her own desire to do something that would make their daughter proud.[32]

To one reporter’s emailed question about her divorce, she replied, “Married in 1983, separated in 1987, and divorced in 1988. Enough said.”[32] In a Vogue profile, she further explained, “We grew up together. We were friends since childhood. In a sense, he was the boy next door. I married without really appreciating how hard divorce would be.”[32] William Jarrett died in 1993 at age 40, and at the time of his death was director of obstetrics and gynecology at Jackson Park Hospital.[33]

fake news: if you don’t like Trump just go ahead & lie

 fake-news-bbbb Fake news again: Actually detained under Obama, an Olympic medal winner Muslim-American  lies as to when  detention occurred.  
The latest example features Ibtihaj Muhammad, the New Jersey native who recently became the first female Muslim-American to win an Olympic medal for the United States.

Here’s a transcript of what Muhammad told Popsugar’s Lindsay Miller on Feb. 7 about the alleged incident with customs agents [emphases added]:

Popsugar: Do you know anyone who was directly impacted by Trump’s travel ban?

Ibtihaj Muhammad: Well, I personally was held at Customs for two hours just a few weeks ago. I don’t know why. I can’t tell you why it happened to me, but I know that I’m Muslim. I have an Arabic name. And even though I represent Team USA and I have that Olympic hardware, it doesn’t change how you look and how people perceive you.

Unfortunately, I know that people talk about this having a lot to do with these seven countries in particular, but I think the net is cast a little bit wider than we know. And I’m included in that as a Muslim woman who wears a hijab.

Journalists were so eager to virtue signal their outrage and despair over this supposed injustice that Time, the UK’s Independent, the Daily Mail, the New York Daily NewsThe Hill, and of course Sports Illustrated and ESPN all spread the story far and wide before verifying it. Specifically, they should have double-checked whether she was detained after Trump’s travel ban went into place, after Trump was inaugurated, or perhaps while Obama was still president.

As it happens, according to Muhammad herself, her purported “detention” took place in December while Obama was still president.

don’t hold your breath – Eric Holder paid $25 K by CA

Eric Holder paid $25 K a month by CA

Eric Holder paid $25 K a month by CA

Don’t hold your breath – Eric Holder gets $25 K a month paid by CA taxpayers – and he’s not  going away soon.

Remember Eric Holder, Attorney General under Obama who was the first attorney general to be held in contempt of Congress.

Holder in 2014 told state attorney generals that they did not have to enforce laws they disagreed with.

 

Eric Holder paid $25 K by CA and not leaving soon

Eric Holder paid $25 K by CA and not leaving soon

Is that why  Eric Holder has come to CA?  To help CA so they don’t enforce federal laws?

The LA Times is worried that CA might botch how it manages its  Sanctuary State stance.  Gotta walk a fine line says the LA Times.

Obamas sends more terrorists sent off to do ISIS biding

   gitmo-detainees-released-2Obama releases another 10 GITMO terrorists out  to do ISIS biding.

 Outgoing President Barack Obama has transferred 10 prisoners from the U.S. military detention center in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba to Oman on his way out of the White House.

As of 10:30 AM Monday, the Pentagon had not announced the transfers as it has consistently done in the past. The identities and nationalities of the prisoners remained unknown at the time.

Only 45 remain in GITMO, down from 242 when Obama came into  office.

Obama: which Obama words will Americans long remember?

if-you-like-your-planRemembering Obama — what words will Americans remember best? Three are listed below:

Some notable famous words Obama spoke: 1)  “red line”,  2) “jayvee team” and 3)  “if you like your plan you can keep it”.

If you like your plan:  The first votes for ObamaCare repeal happened Jan. 12, 2016.  The Senate passed 51-48 a budget resolution that allows a simple majority to roll back much of ObamaCare. And on Friday the House followed voting 227 to 198 for the budget resolution.  So —  in 2017 Americans will get to choose their medical care again.  Hopefully.

Red line:  Obama’s  empty threat, the “red line” over use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime, gave a green light to Russia to increase its support of Assad, gaining a precious naval base in the Mediterranean and thereby altering the balance of power in Middle East waters.  And unleashed even more war on Syrians.

Jay vee team:  Remember  reference to ISIS as the jay ve team?  Not worthy of having to really deal with them?  Obama’s comment was way off mark:

Obama is the greatest according to Obama’s last speech

obama-aaaa So what did Obama really  accomplish?  To listen to Obama he thinks he’s the greatest.   You can listen to all of it below.

Obama got the largest applause  — very lengthy — when he said that he opposed discrimination against muslims.

Crime? What’s the Obama legacy on crime?   How about  black crime in Chicago  where Obama delivered his farewell address to America?  In 2016 there’s some 3000+ dead blacks killing blacks in Chicago, Ill.

Obama’s wonderful qualities?  Obama mentions himself 80+ times in his  last speech.  Just a tad narcissistic?

Race relations?  How many people voted for Obama thinking that  race issues would improve?  That flopped.

Reach across the isle? No.   ObamaCare was created by Democrat Nancy Pelosi and who ignored Republicans and ultimately zero votes were cast by Republicans for ObamaCare. Obama spent the last 4 years spewing out one Executive Order after another. Those may evaporate just as quickly as they were created.

Here’s Obama’s speech:

what motivated that Ft. Lauderdale guy with a jehadist identify?

 

Ft. Lauderdale shooter has jehadist identify

Ft. Lauderdale shooter has jehadist identify

The Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooter is a Muslim convert who years before joining the U.S. Army took on an Islamic name (Aashiq Hammad).  GotNews did the investigative work.

Estaban Santiago aka Aashiq Hammad  then  downloaded terrorist propaganda and recorded Islamic religious music online.

This is according to public records dug up by the investigative news site of an award-winning, California journalist.

This is pertinent information that the Obama administration apparently wants to keep quiet, bringing up memories of the Benghazi cover up, in which the president and his cohorts knowingly lied to conceal that Islamic terrorists attacked the U.S. Special Mission in Libya.

Information is slowly trickling out that links the Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooter to radical Islam while the official story from authorities is that the gunman is a mentally ill,

Hispanic Army veteran named Esteban Santiago that became unhinged after a tour in Iraq. Only one mainstream media outlet mentions the possibility of Santiago’s “jihadist identity,” burying it in a piece about New York possibly being his initial target. A paragraph deep in the story mentions that investigators recovered Santiago’s computer from a pawn shop and the FBI is examining it to determine whether he created a “jihadist identity for himself using the name Aashiq Hammad…” The reset of the traditional mainstream media coverage promotes the government rhetoric that omits any ties to terrorism even though early on a photo surfaced of Santiago making an ISIS salute while wearing a keffiyeh, a Palestinian Arab scarf.

The public records uncovered in the days after the massacre suggest Santiago (Hammad) is a radical Islamic terrorist that’s seriously committed to Islam. Besides taking on a Muslim name, he recorded three Islamic religious songs, including the Muslim declaration faith (“there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger”) known as the Shahada. He also posted a thread about downloading propaganda videos from Islamic terrorists on a weapons and explosives forum. The investigative news site that unearthed this disturbing information connected the dots between Santiago, who is of Puerto Rican descent, and Hammad, an identity he created in 2007.

Obama gives himself a medal as he really thinks he is the greatest

   clearlynuts I really think I am the greatest, so  President Obama gives himself  a medal  for Distinguished Public Service.

On Wednesday, President Obama added another prestigious medal to his Nobel Prize collection when he had Defense Secretary Ash Carter award him with the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service.

Secretary Carter awarded his boss with the medal on January 4 during the Armed Forces Full Honor Farewell Review for the President held at Conmy Hall, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Virginia.

Carter insisted that the medal was a token of appreciation for Obama’s service as commander in chief, the Associated Press reported.
