It is import to quit using the word “wire-tap” in reference to what OBAMA and his administration did in using government resources and agencies to listen and read conversations and correspondence in the Trump Plaza and elsewhere prior to the election.
Using the word wire-tap gives all those who are guilty a pass. Because they can CORRECTLY deny that it was ever done.
You need to use the correct vocabulary in describing the illegal and unethical work Obama and his administration did in breaching Mr. Trump and all his staff etc. privacy.

We witnessed yet again the inability to exact an ethical and reasonable work of leadership from the individual who serves as president of the USA, the individual, BHO aka “the chief empty suit” (CES). He is busy doing what he can to hinder the transition and then ongoing Presidential administration of the next President of the USA, Donald J. Trump. The last time a President met such unprofessional and unethical treatment by the outgoing administration was when Bill Clinton left office. (Hmmm, see a pattern forming?)
CES is busy writing executive orders (EOs) with the sole purpose of limiting Trump’s ability to lead this country. Yes it is true some of what is on Trump’s agenda is to roll back CES legislation and/or EOs. Is it not reasonable to correct an error if it lies within your power to do so?
CES is busy building his executive hq in DC in the heart of the embassies of foreign nations to more effectively network and link-in progressive change makers/experts for the USA (that is code for socialist troublemakers/organizers).
And the CES being the empty suit he is, has worked feverishly to blast what he hopes is a crippling blow to Israel and more specifically to Netanyahu. He tried his best to defeat him in the last Israeli election but failed. Now his administration has aggressively worked behind the scenes to bring to the UN a resolution to condemn Israel for not embracing a nation (PNA/PLO/Hamas) that do not acknowledge the right of the nation of Israel to exist but also holds the belief and aggressively educates its youth to fight, attack and kill until every Jew is destroyed. The CES’s administration decision of not vetoing the resolution is receiving rebuke from Democrats and Republicans.
“An Egyptian newspaper has published what it claims are the transcripts of meetings between top US and Palestinian officials that, if true, would corroborate Israeli accusations that the Obama administration was behind last week’s UN Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements.”
Other reports of Biden calling foreign leaders expressing that they need to vote for the resolution are surfacing. Off course Biden’s office says that it isn’t true.
In matters less serious but still on topic, we have the amateurish comments by the CES that if he was running against Trump he would have won.
Smooth transition of power eh?
Professional and ethical actions of the head of government, huh?
Quality example of leadership we should point to others to emulate, huh?
See Ed Klein’s remarks today about all of this. (about 5 min in length)
“The truth is that Islam is not like other religion and it is certainly not a religion of peace. Sometimes the truth isn’t comfortable. Sometimes the truth offends. But it is far better that we offend others than lose our own freedom.”
Dive immediately into the section on M the moralist (under myths of M)
Look at the list of attacks against those who call themselves Christian since 9/11/01. The list is updated quite frequently due to the constant Islamic attacks.

Michelle Obama’s ‘Hopelessness’ Shows It Sucks to Be a Liberal
by Susan Stamper Brown
“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all.” – Emily Dickinson
It’s a shame that Michelle Obama says she’s feeling hopeless this Christmas, especially after all the wonderful opportunities she’s had as America’s first lady. It goes to show you that liberalism is like a disease that won’t be satisfied until it devours all of you. Undoubtedly, all the designer gown-wearing, Hollywood hobnobbing, $100-per-serving wagyu steak indulging and taxpayer-funded globetrotting won’t fix the hopelessness which ails her. It’s hard to be hope-filled when you tangle yourself in a web of bitterness and resentment over America’s past.
Just last year, Mrs. Obama shared how she really feels during a racially-divisive commencement speech at Tuskegee University that would have made its founder, Booker T. Washington, grieve. In fact, in his book, “My Larger Education,” Washington warned readers about people like her, calling them “problem profiteers.”
Washington wrote: “There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
Michelle’s “problem profiteering” came across loud and clear with her admission of hopelessness during the recent Oprah Winfrey interview. She came across like a spoiled brat when she said, “We are feeling what not having hope feels like” — although her husband, Mr. Hope-and-Change himself, had eight years to propagate hope had he not been so preoccupied with change.
Mrs. Obama is leaving the White House with the same negative attitude about America she’s had most of her adult life. Apparently, it changed temporarily, when her husband became the 2008 Democrat Party nominee.
“For the first time in my adult life,” she said, “I am really proud of my country, because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback.”
But, now that President Obama’s on his way out the door, hope is too.
It’s as if she sincerely believes that hope rises and falls based on her husband. It is enormously arrogant to suggest that any human being has that much power, let alone someone whose policies: wrecked healthcare and made it unaffordable, hurt manufacturing and downgraded the job market, lowered household incomes and added millions to food stamp rolls, weakened the military and made us less safe, played class politics and eviscerated racial unity — to name a few.
With “hope” like that, no wonder Americans voted for change.
Obviously, Michelle won’t be happy until everyone feels as hopeless as she does about America.
But, that’s not going to happen.
In fact, the Electoral College just met and did its job to seal the deal for Trump, who won more counties that any candidate since Ronald Reagan. The U.S. Constitution worked, despite the obnoxious temper tantrums, death threats and harassment hurled at the electors by crazy, crybaby leftists who refuse to accept the fact that if Americans had wanted to give Obama a third term, Hillary Clinton would’ve handily won.
Instead, voters sent the leftist, totalitarian agenda packing. And stocks rose and poll after poll reflect that Americans have a growing and glowing optimism about the direction America is headed.
If that is Michelle Obama’s definition of hopelessness, then it sucks to be a liberal.

By Kelly Riddell – The Washington Times – Thursday, November 24, 2016
What worries me the most about fake news, isn’t that it’s fake, it’s that it’s being used by the left to try to silence opposing views.
Take for example a story reported by the Los Angeles Times that included a professor who put together a Google document of “false, misleading, clickbait-y and satirical ‘news sources’” to help people “cleanse their newsfeeds of misinformation.”
The only problem with the list, was it included real news sites of which the professor simply didn’t agree. Conservative blogs, including Red State and The Blaze, were on the list, as was more centrist, but GOP-leaning Independent Journal Review (IJR). None of those sites are fake — they often just peddle in the real news purposely not covered by the mainstream media.
“Not all of these sources are always or inherently problematic, neither are all of them fake or false,” the professor, Melissa Zimdars, at Merrimack College in Massachusetts told the Times. ” … They should be considered in conjunction with other news/info sources due to their tendency to rely on clickbait headlines or Facebook descriptions, etc.”
So, just like MSNBC, Huffington Post, Slate, Mother Jones, and ThinkProgress — all partisan left outlets, which often use exaggeration and hyperbole to emphasize their point — which weren’t included on her list.
CNN’s media columnist Brian Stelter also has warned about “fake news,” but in his diatribe, he included right-leaning Fox News and alt-right website Breitbart in the mix.
“Breitbart is anti-media. Much of Fox News is anti-media. Fake news websites and some right wing blogs are anti-media. These outlets provide a different audience with a different set of facts about the world. But too often what they’re really selling is opinion and conspiracy theory masquerading as fact. These sites, these outlets, they present themselves as the opposite of traditional news sources, the antidote to mainstream media,” he said.
What he’s right about is there does need to be an antidote to the mainstream media. Because often what he — and other newsrooms around the country — view as “opinion and conspiracy theory” are all too often real news stories that simply don’t fit their agenda.
The possibility that Donald Trump could become president? CNN never had a map that could get him to 270 electoral votes. Respected pollster FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver got chastised the week leading up to the election because he had Mr. Trump’s chances at about 30 percent — far higher than any of the broadcast networks or other pollsters who engaged in group-think.
Paid protesters are another example.
We know, after an undercover video was released by conservative group Project Veritas, that two Democratic operatives had to step down from their positions because it looked as though they were trying to hire protesters to incite violence at Mr. Trump’s rallies.
These two men didn’t lose their jobs because they were innocent — or because the videos were “highly edited” like the mainstream media charged. Clearly something was going on there. But only right-wing outlets (or “fake,” “anti-media” blogs) covered it, with barely a mention at CNN, NPR or any of the broadcast news networks.
When Mr. Trump said during a presidential debate that protesters were hired and told to do “bad things” at his rallies, PolitiFact even admitted that “too much remains unknown to put it on the Truth-O-Meter.”
So it seems like it would be something investigative journalists would want to, well, investigate.
But not according to Washington Post reporter Phillip Bump.
When Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse asked on Twitter after the election, why wasn’t there more reporting on the anti-Trump protests — like who they were organized by and if they were paid for — Mr. Bump took offense.
“Sasse’s question is a bit like asking why we don’t have more reporting on the fact that the Moon is preparing a superweapon with which to annex Antarctica,” Mr. Bump wrote, in an article titled: “Sen. Sasse here are some answers to your questions about ‘paid rioting.’”
When confronted on Twitter about his lack of intellectual curiosity from a reader, Mr. Bump responded: “Allow me to reply in a way you’ll grasp: derp, derp, derp.”
So yes, we need an antidote to this sort of media — and that often comes in the likes of the Federalist — who did an epic take-down of Mr. Bump last week — or The Washington Times, Washington Free-Beacon, The Daily Caller, and, yes, Breitbart.
None of it is fake — it’s merely doing the job the mainstream media refuses to do.

Attached and referenced below is from the JUDICIAL WATCH. Its a bit longer of an article, maybe 15 minutes at the most. However it does provide a good synopsis of the matter and what unethical behavior the State Department and others are doing in order to protect Hillary and undoubtedly Bill Clinton.
Excerpt from Judicial Watch:
The State Department admitted that it has 5,600 Clinton emails recovered by the FBI that were government documents and not personal emails as she claimed. The public deserves to know what is in those emails, well before November 8, and the State Department should not continue dragging its feet on producing them. The State Department admitted in court today it pulled staff off of Clinton email Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. The American people need to pressure State to stop sitting on these new Clinton emails for political reasons and release them as the law requires. It is outrageous the State Department has had these new Clinton emails since late July, but has only released 5 records.
The court ordered State to process the first 350 pages of documents by October 7, the second 350 pages by October 21, and the third by November 4. (The State Department claims a substantial number of the Clinton emails may be duplicative or near-duplicative of emails Hillary Clinton previously turned over to the State Department.)
The Wall Street Journal reported our reaction right after this morning’s hearing:
After the judge’s order, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said that “the American people could be deprived of this information at this essential time.”
“This is an absolutely corrupt process the State Department has come up with,” he said, blaming the department for the continuing delays.
I spent a lot of time marking up the article in Word only to lose all the mark-ups when pasting into WordPress. So I have attached the article as a PDF.
