Another “the end always justifies the means” caper by Obama during and following the recent election shows he should be charged with treason

Radio host Mark Levin used his Thursday evening show to outline the known steps taken by President Barack Obama’s administration in its last months to undermine Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and, later, his new administration.

Levin called Obama’s effort “police state” tactics, and suggested that Obama’s actions, rather than conspiracy theories about alleged Russian interference in the presidential election to help Trump, should be the target of congressional investigation.

Drawing on sources including the New York Times and the Washington Post, Levin described the case against Obama so far, based on what is already publicly known. The following is an expanded version of that case, including events that Levin did not mention specifically but are important to the overall timeline.

1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.

2. July: Russia joke. Wikileaks releases emails from the Democratic National Committee that show an effort to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from winning the presidential nomination. In a press conference, Donald Trump refers to Hillary Clinton’s own missing emails, joking: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.” That remark becomes the basis for accusations by Clinton and the media that Trump invited further hacking.

3. October: Podesta emails. In October, Wikileaks releases the emails of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, rolling out batches every day until the election, creating new mini-scandals. The Clinton campaign blames Trump and the Russians.

4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

 5. January 2017: Buzzfeed/CNN dossier. Buzzfeed releases, and CNN reports, a supposed intelligence “dossier” compiled by a foreign former spy. It purports to show continuous contact between Russia and the Trump campaign, and says that the Russians have compromising information about Trump. None of the allegations can be verified and some are proven false. Several media outlets claim that they had been aware of the dossier for months and that it had been circulating in Washington.

6. January: Obama expands NSA sharing. As Michael Walsh later notes, and as the New York Times reports, the outgoing Obama administration “expanded the power of the National Security Agency to share globally intercepted personal communications with the government’s 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections.” The new powers, and reduced protections, could make it easier for intelligence on private citizens to be circulated improperly or leaked.

7. January: Times report. The New York Times reports, on the eve of Inauguration Day, that several agencies — the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Treasury Department are monitoring several associates of the Trump campaign suspected of Russian ties. Other news outlets also report the existence of “a multiagency working group to coordinate investigations across the government,” though it is unclear how they found out, since the investigations would have been secret and involved classified information.

8. February: Mike Flynn scandal. Reports emerge that the FBI intercepted a conversation in 2016 between future National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — then a private citizen — and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The intercept supposedly was part of routine spying on the ambassador, not monitoring of the Trump campaign. The FBI transcripts reportedly show the two discussing Obama’s newly-imposed sanctions on Russia, though Flynn earlier denied discussing them. Sally Yates, whom Trump would later fire as acting Attorney General for insubordination, is involved in the investigation. In the end, Flynn resigns over having misled Vice President Mike Pence (perhaps inadvertently) about the content of the conversation.

9. February: Times claims extensive Russian contacts. The New York Times cites “four current and former American officials” in reporting that the Trump campaign had “repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials. The Trump campaign denies the claims — and the Times admits that there is “no evidence” of coordination between the campaign and the Russians. The White House and some congressional Republicans begin to raise questions about illegal intelligence leaks.

10. March: the Washington Post targets Jeff Sessions. The Washington Post reports that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had contact twice with the Russian ambassador during the campaign — once at a Heritage Foundation event and once at a meeting in Sessions’s Senate office. The Post suggests that the two meetings contradict Sessions’s testimony at his confirmation hearings that he had no contacts with the Russians, though in context (not presented by the Post) it was clear he meant in his capacity as a campaign surrogate, and that he was responding to claims in the “dossier” of ongoing contacts. The New York Times, in covering the story, adds that the Obama White House “rushed to preserve” intelligence related to alleged Russian links with the Trump campaign. By “preserve” it really means “disseminate”: officials spread evidence throughout other government agencies “to leave a clear trail of intelligence for government investigators” and perhaps the media as well.

In summary: the Obama administration sought, and eventually obtained, authorization to eavesdrop on the Trump campaign; continued monitoring the Trump team even when no evidence of wrongdoing was found; then relaxed the NSA rules to allow evidence to be shared widely within the government, virtually ensuring that the information, including the conversations of private citizens, would be leaked to the media.

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  We have said it before (along with many others), that Obama has no honor, no integrity, and no sense of right and wrong.  He is morally bankrupt, in other words.  The end always justifies the means, not just for Obama but also for the Clintons and most of the Democrats.  Pretty disgusting when your elected government officials show you over and over again exactly what that looks like in broad daylight, with no attempt to make it look like anything else.

Obama’s Department of Injustice extortion scheme to corporations: Pay a huge fine as penalty for your actions, or “donate” smaller amount to XYZ radical leftist “non-profit” organization

Mr. OOOObamaWhen our government watchdogs sniff out a company which has produced a faulty product or otherwise swindled the innocent, you can bet a hefty financial penalty will follow.

Yet, as we’ve known for years, and others are now discovering, the Obama government was not as much an industry watchdog as it was possibly the world’s largest crime syndicate.

Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire reports on a Fox News story that broke just Wednesday. “Advocates for big government and progressive power are using the Justice Department to extort money from corporations,” Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch told Fox. “It’s a shakedown. It’s corrupt, pure and simple.”

So what’s this all about? Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh explained the basic parameters of the slush fund scheme, and it would make the Mob proud.

Obama’s Department of (In)Justice, under both Loretta Lynch and her crooked predecessor Eric Holder, would file a federal complaint or suit against a corporation they deemed was doing something they weren’t supposed to be. And as they are the arbiters of everything Just, their judgment of wrong-doing was/is without question.

The thugs at Justice would then publically announce the several billion dollar fine they would impose on the evil-doers. It’s now out there in the press, which satisfies the public that our government has our backs. Case closed – right? Wrongo!

The case might appear to be closed, but not for Obama crime family. Justice would then quietly approach the offending corporation and make them an offer they would be wise not to refuse. Holder or Lynch would give the company a choice to either pay the multi-billion dollar fine (in some cases) in full to the feds and/or the aggrieved victims, or take what’s behind curtain number two. The second option was to pay a fraction of the fine amount, but “donate” it to one of the administration’s chosen radical leftist “non-profit” organizations.

A few of these are the National Council of La Raza, National Urban League and National Community Reinvestment Coalition. The others aside, you don’t get any more radical than La Raza.

Fox reports that, “So far, investigators have accounted for $3 billion paid to ‘non-victim entities.’”

We often wonder just where these organizations seem to find what appears to be unlimited funding to power their perpetual protest and antagonist machines. Well, wonder no more. Our own government is conscientiously forgoing fines to the general fund, or to wronged victims, to instead funnel millions to their partners in crime at these lefty activist groups.

It appears to be just another eminent domain scheme, but instead of the government seizing property for use by another, or to prevent something from occurring, like drilling, the federal government is seizing cash for several radical leftist activist groups. It’s really no different than what Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have been doing for decades – shaking down corporations for cash. And why would it be…Jesse and Al are just glorified community agitators, just like Obama. You do what you know how to do, right?

Amazing increase in major earthquakes worldwide over the last hundred years

Amazing increase in earthquakes...

 

Amazing increase in earthquakes, continued

 

In the Bible, Matthew 24:7 states: For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places.

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven; this was written 2,000 years ago, by Luke the Evangelist who was quoting the warnings of Jesus Christ.

Famines, pestilence and fearful events are very much a part of our life these days and as for signs from heaven, last year we were blessed with blood Moons and Super Moons, sun and moon eclipses, fire balls, and comets, just to name a few.

But it’s the earthquakes statistics which are jaw-dropping.   This century, from January 1st in the year 2,000 until January 2017 a total of 2,697 major quakes have been recorded.

In the same period, January 1st 1900 to January 1917, only 97 major quakes were recorded; that is an incredible increase and indicates our planet is showing signs of birth pains because just as a woman in labor suffers contractions of increasing pain and intensity likewise our planet is also suffering with increasing quake pain and intensity.

Along with wars and rumors of wars which seem to be always present, it is safe to conclude we are most definitely  in the last days.

End of a global debt supercycle is way overdue

We could be facing the greatest global debt crisis in all of human history.

 

Never before have we seen such a level of debt saturation all over the planet, and pretty much everyone understands that this is going to end very, very badly at some point.  The only real question is when it will happen.  Many believe that the current global debt super cycle began when the Federal Reserve was established in 1913.  Central banks are designed to create debt, and since 1913 the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 6800 times larger.  But of course it is not just the United States that is in this sort of predicament.  At this point more than 99 percent of the population of the entire planet lives in a nation that has a debt-creating central bank, and as a result the whole world is drowning in debt. ( Debt levels all over the world have been rising for more than a hundred years!)

When people say that things are going to “get better” in 2017 and beyond, they are engaging in nothing more than wishful thinking.  The truth is that the only way we can even continue to maintain our current ridiculously high debt-fueled standard of living is to grow debt at a much faster pace than the economy is growing.  We may be able to do that for a brief period of time, but giant financial bubbles like this always end; we will not be an exception.

Barack Obama and his financial team understood what was happening, and they were able to keep us out of a horrifying economic depression by stealing more than nine trillion dollars from future generations of Americans and pumping that money into the U.S. economy.  As a result, the federal government is now 20 trillion dollars in debt, and that means that the eventual crash is going to be far, far worse than it would have been without Obama’s temporary “fix.”

Corporations and households have been going into absolutely enormous amounts of debt as well.  Corporate debt has approximately doubled since the last financial crisis, and U.S. consumers are now more than 12 trillion dollars in debt.

When you add all forms of debt together, America’s debt to GDP ratio is now about 352 percent.  The following illustration does a pretty good job of showing how absolutely insane that is

If your brother earns $100,000 in annual income and borrowed $10,000 on his credit card, he could consume $110,000 worth of stuff.  In this example, his debt to his personal GDP is just 10%.  But what if he could get more credit year after year and reached a point where his total debt reached $352,000 but his income remained the same.  His personal debt-to-GDP ratio would now be 352%.

If he could borrow at super low interest rates, maybe he could sustain the monthly loan payments. Maybe.  But how much more could he possibly borrow?  What lender would lend him more money?  And what if those low rates began to rise?  How much debt can his $100,000 income cover?  Essentially, he has reached the end of his own debt cycle.

The United States is certainly not alone in this regard.  When you look all over the industrialized world, you see similar triple digit debt to GDP figures.

When this current debt super cycle ultimately ends, it is going to create economic pain on a scale that will be unlike anything that we have ever seen before.  The following comes from King World News

That is the inevitable consequence of 100 years of credit expansion from virtually nothing to $250 trillion, plus global unfunded liabilities of roughly $500 trillion, plus derivatives of $1.5 quadrillion. This is a staggering total of $2.25 quadrillion. Therefore, the question is not what could go wrong since it is guaranteed that all these liabilities will implode at some point.  When they do, it will bring misery to the world of a magnitude that no one could ever imagine. It is of course very difficult to forecast the end of a major cycle, as this is unlikely to be a mere 100-year cycle but possibly a 2000-year cycle. It is also impossible to forecast how long the decline will take. Will it be gradual like the Dark Ages, which took 500 years after the fall of the Roman Empire? Or will the fall be much faster this time due to the implosion of the biggest credit bubble in world history? The latter is more likely, especially since the bubble will become a lot bigger before it implodes.

And there are certainly lots of signs that a global slowdown is already beginning.  For example, global trade growth has fallen below 2 percent for only the third time since the year 2000.  On each of the other occasions, we witnessed a horrible recession take place.

Of course much of the globe is already in the midst of a horrible economic crisis.  Brazil is in the middle of their worst recession ever, and people are literally starving in Venezuela.  A new round of debt problems has erupted in Europe, with Greece, Portugal and Italy being the latest flashpoints.

Just like in 2007, many are mocking the idea that the a major economic downturn is coming to the United States.  They believe that the ridiculously high stock market valuations of today can stick around indefinitely, and they are putting their faith in politicians.

But it won’t be too long before a new economic crisis begins in America, accompanied by unimagined levels of civil unrest.

Government debt, corporate debt and consumer debt have all been growing much, much faster than the overall economy.  How could that possibly be sustainable in the long-term?

The light at the end of the tunnel is really a massive oncoming, runaway freight train, and it will obliterate everything in its path.

Obama’s hidden legacy…but he will never call it that

Obama made eight years of systemic changes in this country, legal and regulatory, yes, but also cultural, moral, and psychological.  Some of these changes will very difficult, and perhaps impossible, to reverse.

Obama’s Justice and Education Depts. enforced policies, regulations, and laws that prevent educators from disciplining insubordinate students.  The government said that because statistics show that black students are disciplined at a higher rate than white students, this proves that US teachers and administrators are racist. Obama’s bureaucracy forced schools into allowing two generations of high school students to go unrestrained and unpunished.  The result?  Millions of young people have been “educated” to ignore both rules and laws.

Obama also attacked our prison system, accusing it of deep-seated racism.  He blamed the makeup of jail populations not on law-breaking, but on the law itself…and particularly on judges and law enforcement officers.  Obama accused police of racism so vile that we are supposed to believe police often murder a man just because he is black.  By the end of Obama’s second term it became quite common to see people marching in the streets, trashing public places, beating people on the sidewalks, and rioting in cities like Ferguson and Baltimore.

Obama, occupying an office created to enforce the law, personally undermined the rule of law.  He often openly refused to enforce laws that his office is specifically required to enforce.  His enforcement of immigration was lawless at best, and completely anti-law at worst.  Because of his example, many more Americans now mistrust, disrespect, and even attack law enforcement officers.  US citizens seems to hate the law more than they hate the crime.

Obama fundamentally and deliberately weakened American culture, economy, and security.  He opened the doors wide on entitlements and spent hundreds of billions giving away phones, health care, money, and lots more, hooking tens of millions of Americans on welfare benefits.  He forced passage of a gargantuan health care law, reportedly the largest tax in US history, that was a massive federal overreach into our personal lives.

Obama was the biggest spender not just in US history, but in world history, accumulating so much public debt that he just about doubled the amount this country now owes to others.  He openly supported Black Lives Matter by inviting the organization to the White House…an organization which has more to do with anti-Constitution socialism and race-baiting than with any betterment of black lives.  He also bathed the exterior of the White House with the LGBT colors to be sure Americans would get the message that he especially loves queers and their causes more than what 98% of America stands for.

But all that wasn’t enough.  Obama used both the Justice Dept. and the IRS as political weapons to further “persuade” Americans that he was in charge.  He authorized surveillance of journalists, mass surveillance of average Americans, and targeted killing of Americans suspected of connections with terrorism, trying to give the US government the right to kill Americans anywhere in the world without the inconvenience of a legal trial.

The only “legacy” Obama can possibly point to is lawlessness.  He had no interest at all in enforcing laws, instead trying to enforce his personal will.  In that process he showed all of us what this country will look like when the police decide they have had enough abuse and start resigning by the thousands.

Confronting America’s changed mentality will not be easy…but we will not be great again until we demand a return to living by our Constitution and the rule of law.

Sheriff David Clarke has final comment for the Obamas now that they are finally out of American public life

Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, is one of the most visible law enforcement officers in the nation. He also believes, like any good baseball umpire, in “calling ’em like he sees ’em.”

He is on record as not being a big fan of the Obamas. Now that they’re out of the White House and out of American public life, he took a moment to respond to Michelle Obama’s comment made back in 2008 when Barack was nominated for our highest office.  You will probably remember her comment:  “For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country, because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.”

Many Americans probably wondered how in the world it could have taken “her adult life” up to that point to finally decide she could be proud of the country she had lived in all that time.  She could only be proud of the USA because Barack had run for the White House?

Michelle Obama found out in last November’s election that most Americans were not proud even a little bit of the mess she and Barack had made of life in our formerly great nation.  Most Americans would undoubtedly agree totally and completely with Sheriff Clarke based on the election results.

Sheriff David Clarke just responded directly to Michelle Obama’s comment by saying “Michelle Obama said she was never proud of her country til they elected her husband POTUS.  I’ve never been prouder since we got rid of him.”
