Obama had to spy on Trump to protect himself.

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism.

Last week, CNN revealed (and excused) one phase of the Obama spying operation on Trump. After lying about it on MSNBC, Susan Rice admitted unmasking the identities of Trump officials to Congress.

Rice was unmasking the names of Trump officials a month before leaving office. The targets may have included her own successor, General Flynn, who was forced out of office using leaked surveillance.

While Rice’s targets weren’t named, the CNN story listed a meeting with Flynn, Bannon and Kushner.

Bannon was Trump’s former campaign chief executive and a senior adviser. Kushner is a senior adviser. Those are exactly the people you spy on to get an insight into what your political opponents plan to do.

Now the latest CNN spin piece informs us that secret FISA orders were used to spy on the conversations of Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.  The surveillance was discontinued for lack of evidence and then renewed under a new warrant. This is part of a pattern of FISA abuses by Obama Inc. which never allowed minor matters like lack of evidence to dissuade them from new FISA requests.

Joe Fitzgerald,
Canandaigua, NY 1

On December 7, 1941 the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) using 6 of its aircraft carriers and hundreds of aircraft launched a sneak attack on the United States by bombing the U. S. Navy ships and personnel at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. This “Day of Infamy”, as President Roosevelt called it was devastating with over 3,500 Americans killed or injured, and many ships/planes sunk, destroyed or heavily damaged.   Japan’s war against the United States had begun.  Germany as a member of the Axis powers declared war on the United States on Dec. 11, 1941.  World War II was now official.  Remember Pearl Harbor!

America was confronted with a two-front war, the European-Atlantic (E-A) and the Asia-Pacific (A-P).  President Roosevelt focused most of America’s limited resources on the E-A theatre but also began the difficult, brutal and bloody land, sea and air battles to defeat Japan.  The entire A-P war alone from 1941 thru 1945 cost hundreds of thousands of American and allied deaths, injuries, POWs and MIAs with great sacrifices on the Home Front.

He Fights

by Evan Sayet at Townhall

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum.  They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”  Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity.  There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.  We tried statesmanship.  Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?  We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?  And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

NY Constitutional Convention: A Pathway to End Corruption

The time has come to decide whether or not New York will hold a convention to open up its lengthy and convoluted Constitution to review and redrafting. Every 20 years, New York State has a referendum on the ballot allowing voters to decide Yes or No on a constitutional convention.

But State Legislators have come out swinging against the convention. And when public officials and special interests use fear tactics to protect the status quo, we must exercise our democratic rights in order to enact positive change.

If the majority of voters vote against the convention, no convention will take place and business will resume as usual. If instead, the Yes vote wins, a slate of delegates representing every New York district will be elected in November 2018 to begin the Constitution amending process. Starting the first week of April 2019, the delegates will convene in Albany to discuss and vote on possible amendments. And in November 2019, the referendums will appear on the ballot.

Most New Yorkers have no idea that this historic process exists, but the fear campaign against holding a convention has already begun.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Republicans

As a Republican, I’d like to share ten things most folks on the left don’t know about us. For you Republicans and Libertarians, this list will come as no surprise. However, for those of you who identify as Democrats or “liberals,” you might want to read on.

Here are the 10 things you didn’t know about Republicans:

1. We’re proud of our party’s history, and we’re ashamed of yours.

We’re proud of our party’s history. The Republican party was founded to end slavery in the United States. We fought a war against the Democrats in order to end slavery forever – it was called the Civil War. Today, people on the left think the Civil War was North vs. South, but in reality it was Republicans vs. Democrats, and the Republicans won (thank god).

After we won the Civil War, we dominated the political landscape for decades, and we passed a ton of laws to help black people, women, and other disadvantaged groups to ensure everyone was treated equally under the law.

Additionally, we gave everyone the right to vote despite furious and even violent resistance from the Democrats. We fought against significant opposition from racist Democrats who passed Jim Crow Laws, and we watched as the Democrats founded the KKK. Later in the century, we wrote and passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964 despite Democrat opposition. We managed to pass the Civil Rights Act even though LBJ, who was a Democrat, was a known racist.

Jul Thompson’s Speech at the BPS Board Meeting – May 17, 2017

I hope to clear up some gross misconceptions about our Spirit of America Rally, and hopefully provide a little insight.

I PULLED THE PERMIT, and our group TEA New York, dedicated to fiscal responsibility and Constitutionally Limited Govt, along with SCOPE – the Shooters Committee on Political Education, COSPONSORED the event, and THIS is the summary, published in part, online:

The purpose of this event “was to join the chorus of similar events across the nation, fellowship with other liberty-loving Americans, and generally express our love and support of America’s founding principles enshrined in the divinely-inspired US Constitution.”

We opened in prayer to God through Christ, we recited the Pledge, we listened to great speakers including the Sheriff who properly instructed us on the Rule of Law and we displayed patriotic signs and flags.

Yet without missing a beat, some clearly partisan politicians and others here called it a “radical event” that featured “nasty signs and inciteful hate speech,” all together fueling the BIG FUSS… over NOTHING.  Conspicuously missing were any criticisms over the black-veiled “anti-fascists” doing everything in their power to shut down our free speech.

For Immediate Release: Zellner and Grant Need to Resign

For Immediate Release:
TEA New York
Contact: Rus Thompson

TEA New York Calls for Resignations
of Jeremy Zellner and Betty Jean Grant

TEA New York is calling for the immediate resignation of Jeremy Zellner as Commissioner of the Erie County Board of Elections and Betty Jean Grant as Erie County Legislator, following their deliberately misleading, uninformed, incendiary and divisive public statements regarding participants in Saturday’s Spirit of America Rally, held at Niagara Square in Buffalo NY.

This was a public event. No attempt was made to control who attended, or the free distribution of literature.  To characterize the entire event and all its participants as white supremacists promoting hate speech because of literature shared by two individuals is outrageously irresponsible for public officials. Rus Thompson said “This is why Party Chairmen can’t be Board of Elections Commissioners.  Zellner made false and unhinged comments about good people. Now we have to question whether or not he can safeguard the process of fair elections in Erie County.  Should the Democrat Commissioner of the Board of Elections be making accusations about a sitting Sheriff?”
