I watch little network TV.

Occasionally I watch 60 Minutes.

I am glad I did so last night.

From CBS 60 minutes March 19, 2017.

“Are U.S. jobs vulnerable to workers with H-1B visas?
“60 Minutes” investigates how some businesses have fired American workers and replaced them with cheaper labor: temporary, foreign workers with H-1B visas”

“Protecting American jobs was a signature theme of President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign. A frequent target of candidate Trump was the H-1B visa program. The program, created more than 25 years ago, allows American companies to fill gaps in the workforce from overseas with highly skilled employees, who can’t be found in the U.S. Many businesses use the program as intended, but we discovered more and more are taking advantage of loopholes in the law to fire American workers and replace them with younger, cheaper, temporary foreign workers with H-1B visas. But before the American workers walk out the door they often face the humiliating prospect of having to train the people taking their jobs.

Last October, Robert Harrison, a senior telecom engineer at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center, was called to a meeting at the university with about 80 of his IT co-workers.

“It’s gonna be a matter of time before everybody else feels the same burden, the same pinch, the same hurt that we’re feeling right here at UCSF. It’s a matter of time.” Robert Harrison
Bill Whitaker: What did they say to you?

Robert Harrison: We are sorry to inform you that as of Feb. 28, you’ll no longer have a job. We’re going to outsource your position to this company in India.

Bill Whitaker: To a company in India.

Robert Harrison: Yes, sir.

Robert Harrison CBS NEWS
Harrison was told he could stay on the job, get paid for four more months, and get a bonus if he trained his replacement.

Robert Harrison: And now I’m being told that I h– not only gonna lose my job, but also have to train these people to take my job.

Bill Whitaker: Are you angry?

Robert Harrison: Pissed. That exceeds angry. I’m really not a violent guy. I love people. But I’ve envisioned myself just backhanding the guy as he’s sitting next to me, trying to learn what I know. And I was like, God, please don’t let them send anybody to sit next to me, to shadow me. I don’t want to do this. I really don’t.

“I think, for once, we’re gonna stand up as Americans and say enough is enough. We’re not gonna take it anymore.” Kurt Ho
Harrison and his colleagues staged a protest outside the Medical Center. His fellow worker, senior systems administrator Kurt Ho is losing his job too. He had just trained his replacement from India.

Kurt Ho: I think, for once, we’re gonna stand up as Americans and say enough is enough. We’re not gonna take it anymore.

Sara Blackwell: Thank you for standing up for what you believe in.

Their rally was organized by this woman: Florida attorney Sara Blackwell.

Sara Blackwell: This is about the companies making the decision that you are worthless to them.

She represents hundreds of U.S. workers who were fired and replaced by foreign workers with H-1B visas.

Sara Blackwell: When you tell someone their real reason for getting rid of these jobs is for cheap foreign labor that should offend everyone.

Bill Whitaker: They have to train the worker who’s going to take their job?

Sara Blackwell: Right. They are told by their company: if you don’t train this person in a way that we approve of them being trained, then you don’t get your severance.

The UCSF Medical Center is a highly regarded state-run institution. Administrators say outsourcing the IT jobs could save $30 million taxpayer over the next five years. That’s a fraction of the university’s $5.8 billion annual budget, but to Robert Harrison, it’s his job.

Robert Harrison: I can’t wrap my mind around training somebody to take my position. You know, it’s my livelihood. How am I supposed to feel?

Bill Whitaker: I’ve heard some workers say this is like digging your own grave. Is that what it feels like?

Robert Harrison: It feels worse than that. It feels like not only am I digging the grave, but I’m getting ready to stab myself in the gut and fall into the grave.”

    I hope Trump saw it.

  3. Rep. Trey Gowdy grilled FBI Director James Comey on the several intelligence leaks that made headlines this year.

    The leaks to the liberal media were meant to damage Trump administration officials.

  4. CW…….
    ……….what better way to take control of all the working people and have their vote forever.

  5. AND NOW………
    ……..after hearing Comey at the hearings we now know who, the real bastards are……..and I for one believe that Trump’s allegations are in fact true. Further the SLIME have now exposed themselves……….The Democratic party may cease to exist as a viable party after the TRUTH is brought out in full. Most of the Democratic persons will be either already in prison, and the few that remain well on their way to cells themselves.

  6. AND………
    ………even though a sitting POTUS CANNOT LEGALLY ORDER A WIRETAP does not mean that he wouldn’t illegally order such an act. The last POTUS has DEMONSTRATED MANY TIMES that he does NOT NECESSARILY ABIDE BY THE LAW……..we have witnessed MULTIPILE instances of his disdain towards the law. What he cannot legally do, is NOT NECESSARILY what he will, or has already done. That is also a well demonstrated fact.

  7. AND…….

  8. YET……..
    ……..nobody has yet brought forth the real force which changed the entire election………..The real force was present all the time but the Democrats failed to address this sector. This force IS “RURAL AMERICA”. The Russians had NOTHING TO DO WITH THE WILL OF RURAL AMERICA. ONLY HALFWITS would believe that the Russians TWISTED THE ARMS of ALL RURAL AMERICANS. RURAL AMERICA IS THE PRIMARY REASON WHY Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz PIGGY LOST THE ELECTION………end of story.

  9. …..and obviously Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Sewell of Alabama doesn’t SEE WELL AT ALL. Who the hell even put this numbskull on this committee? She can’t even ask an intelligent, or meaningful question.

  10. I PRAY………
    …..,,,,that SOON President Trump will bring Newt Gingrich into the top level of his administration. Gingrich knows where the liberal landmines are planted, and how they are fused. President Trump needs a well trained, and fully experienced FIELD COMMANDER in the war against the liberals. Then follow up by placing Rudy Guilliani inside the DOJ. He would fulfill the need of a WAR EAGLE to be sitting on a perch very high above the floor, but watching every move of the LIBERAL MICE as they scurry about from lawbook to lawbook. He would be ready to swoop down and take out any little PIECE OF SHI# he sees behaving contrary to Constitutional law.

  11. AND ……..
    ……….Gorsuch is doing great.

  12. AND AS I WATCH…….
    …….the facial expressions of the black lady who is sitting behind and a little to the right of Gorsuch, I have to say that I do not remember ever seeing anyone watch or listen so intently to what is being said. I think that one day she might don a black robe herself, and I have a feeling that she would make a fine judge. Anyone who is watching the hearing should take a look at her. Really says a lot.

  13. AND LEAHY……..
    ………keeps making a fool of himself every time he runs his mouth.

  14. This little girl who supports president Trump is one smart young lady.

  15. old sailor 84
    I am hearing from several places that I go that every one believes that Comey is the LEAKER!

  16. Ginger………
    ………the simple fact that Comey refused to discuss if he advised Soetoro or not is to an extent an admission of the fact that he DID. In advising Soetoro he also advised Loretta Lynch and several other members of Lynche’s staff. If the unmasking of a US CITIZEN came from him then he should face criminal prosecution. At this point there is considerable question if either Comey or someone within the FBI done the leaking. It is still unresolved, and very likely learning the truth will require a real Donnybrook from investigators.

    ………..Paul Manafort WAS an employee of the Trump campaign. He was separated from the campaign EARLY ON………..yet the RABID LUNATICS FOAM AT THE MOUTH, and continue whining “OH THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING, OH THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING, and wringing their hands. This is in reality IRRATIONAL HYSTERIA, which appeals to people with UNSTABLE minds. Such people are normally allegiant to the LIBERAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY. These lunatics might very soon face something which requires a real thinking person.

  18. These people were counting on Hilliary winning the election, in which case there would be no investigation, but now that Trump won, we are about to see some criminals scurry. The usurper is hiding at Brando’s in Polynesia.

    This is just getting started, I can’t wait till they get to the part about the usurper’s ID!


    House Intel Chair Confirms ‘Trump Transition Team Surveilled’ from Election Day to Inauguration

  19. “Bob Strauss:These people were counting on Hilliary winning the election, in which case there would be no investigation, but now that Trump won, we are about to see some criminals scurry”

    I am pretty sure this is how it really went down:
    1. Hillary is not performing well in the polls, and there is concern. Hillary and her team had hand picked Trump because he was the most beatable, and the liberal media assisted in him winning the Republican nomination. (from wiki leaks). The Democrats needed an edge to keep power, loosing power would risk all of the “hope and change’ and potentially result in criminal exposure for key democrats. So they used the US government intelligence sources, and foreign intelligence, to spy on Trump.

    2. Valerie and Obama give the nod to ‘investigate’ Trump connections to Russia. These connections are based upon two sources 1)NeverTrumpers and there MI-5 hackjob dossier put forth by McCain (totally fake stuff) and 2) A sub-company of Google (liberal wack jobs) called Crowdsourcing. The DNC server information release, and Podesta leaks are supposed to have been ‘Russian’ hacks, when in reality they were hacks from the IT people of the DNC. Crowdsourcing made it up, but it fit the agenda to allow the spying to escalate. They applied for FISA warrants to ‘cover the tracks’ of the political spying. They figured, like the EPA, IRS, DOJ, and a million other illegal activities, it was unlikely to get caught.

    So, yes, we are hearing about it because Trump won. You can bet that Trump has the hammer ready to fall still. I also believe that the slow trickle of facts that he was wiretapped is to make it less believable to left wing nuts that the last administration was that criminal.

  20. Pete ……….
    ……….pretty good explanation indeed. The evidence can no longer be suppressed. One by one all of the HALFWITTED LIBERAL CRIMINAL VENTURES HAVE EXPLODED IN THE FACES OF THE NUT CASES, and one by one each ,and everyone of them are ending up IRRELAVENT. Yet they continue to whine and wring their hands and scream their now MORONIC CHANT, “OH THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING, OH THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING”, and the nose picking, stinking a$$ed, drug headed halfwits both male and female believe every word of it. MORONS LEADING HALFWITS= INSANITY. Now it becomes totally necessary to determine who the leaker was. Ninety percent sure is not good enough…….we need make it understood that a whole lot of people might end up in the slammer, but if they are willing to become federal witnesses they might enjoy some immunity, or lighter sentences. When one caged canary sings many of the rest in the cage begin to sing.

  21. More Fake News or is IT?

    Unconfirmed sources now feel that since Dianne Feinstein’s husband near billion dollar Corruptifornia high speed rail contract that is going nowhere, that he will now be awarded the contract to build the Trump Border Wall…… Money talks BS walks.

    Dianne Feinstein’s Husband Wins Near-Billion Dollar California ‘High Speed Rail’ Contract
    To the surprise of absolutely no one familiar with the ways of Corruptifornia, the one-party state completely in the hands of the Democrats, a consortium whose lead firm is controlled by Richard Blum, husband of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, was awarded a nearly billion-dollar contract for the construction of the first phase of the so-called high-speed rail line to link San Francisco and Los Angeles.

  22. Obama’s Saboteurs/ or Undermining Our Republic
    March 21, 2017

    Setting a dangerous precedent for the future of America, the New York Times, the Washington Post and other Leftist propaganda machines and an army of the Obama administration’s holdovers, nothing less than saboteurs, have waged a war of innuendo and speculation and felony leaks for months in an attempt to destroy President Donald Trump’s administration and the government American voters demanded. They have turned their backs on the Constitution and the American people, their oath to protect and defend both, and they have sought to undermine our democratic process and the Republic of the United States of America.

    Classified information leaked to the media – a felony – set speculation in motion as the New York Times and the left-leaning Mother Jones alleged collusion between Donald Trump and his advisors and Russia for the past six months, even though their own reports show an initial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) warrant targeting Trump and several associates was denied and nothing criminal was ever proven. And, according to Heat Street, a more narrowly drawn FISA warrant was granted in October to investigate the Trump campaign’s alleged links to Russia’s Alfa Bank and SVB Bank; the FBI found nothing “nefarious” and attributed the raised alarm to “spam”.

    Essentially, Donald Trump was not named in the second FISA warrant, but surveillance of him and his inner circle, private citizens such as Michael Flynn, Roger Stone and Paul Manafort, continued up to the general election. One can only surmise that Obama and his leftist minions banked on finding information that would defeat Trump; and after Donald Trump won , they continued surveillance in hopes of eventually impeaching and unseating President Trump.

    If phone calls to Russia merit an investigation, shouldn’t Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been investigated for accepting a $145 million bribe from Russia and ROSATOM in exchange for helping them acquire twenty-five percent of America’s uranium resources? Oh, wait a minute — Hillary is a Democrat, so just overlook any criminal behavior.

    Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) suggested the Obama administration’s extensive surveillance of Trump’s presidential campaign was troubling but not surprising. Hatch “suspected that they were going to do that anyways.”

    How could the media and the Obama machine — the Obama Foundation, billionaire George Soros and Organizing for America — not expect Trump to counter-punch? But incredulously, they were unprepared for President Trump’s March 4th 2017 allegation on Twitter that former President Obama “had my wires tapped in Trump Tower just before the victory”.

    Who in the Obama administration ordered the FISA wiretaps and why?

    U.S. citizens normally cannot be searched or subjected to electronic eavesdropping without probable cause of a crime, however FISA makes exceptions if there is probable cause they are agents of a foreign power. No one person can state with a straight face that “Trump is a Russian spy”.

    Retired Lt. Colonel Tony Schaffer, a defense intelligence officer trained by the CIA [Fox News], said, “I put this right at the feet of John Brennan and Jim Clapper, and I would even go so far as to say the White House was directly involved before [Obama} left”. He also asserted that it was clear sensitive information was divulged to the media by people who had access to beyond Top Secret material.

    On the same day of President Trump’s bombshell, Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager, told Judge Jeanine Pirro [Fox News] that the Obama administration was also “listening to conversations between then-Senator Jeff Sessions and the Ambassador from Russia while he was in his U.S. Senate office’. [And] the fact that the Federal Intelligence Surveillance Act is being used to listen to a political opponent is “very, very damaging”.

    Please note that Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and many other Democrats met with this same Russian Ambassador. Their hypocrisy is on full display.

    Some sort of surveillance of the Trump campaign occurred, if one can believe James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence. Clapper told NBC and ABC News that during his tenure in the Obama administration, up to January 20th 2017, there wasn’t any collusion or collaboration between Donald Trump’s campaign and the government of Vladimir Putin’s Russia.

    The NYT’s story “Wiretapped Data Used in Inquiry of Trump Aides” on January 19th 2017 states: “The FBI is leading the investigation, aided by the National Security Agency, the CIA and the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in recent weeks … intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the [Obama] White House.”

    With FBI Director James Comey’s motivation suspect, he asked the Justice Department to confirm that President Trump’s allegation was “absolutely false”. This was followed recently with Congress’s demand for any and all documents concerning any Department of Justice investigation of President Trump and his campaign.

    Once the Democrats had their “uh oh moment”, as Garth Kant of WND called it, they realized that a scandal bigger than Watergate was beginning to unfold. The Obama Justice Department had apparently used its legal authorities to target a political opponent and a presidential candidate.

    Any outrage from the Obama White House is extremely exaggerated. Obama does not deny that Trump was being monitored by his Justice Department, and any spying on his arch rival, a man with the ability to diminish his legacy, was done with Obama’s blessing. Only a fool could believe that Obama was ignorant of the spying.

    From the DOJ’s seizure of Associated Press phone records and Fox News reporter James Rosen’s email records, to heavy IRS scrutiny of the Tea Party and on to the NSA’s warrantless mass surveillance of American citizens, the Obama administration’s enthusiasm for surveillance and using government power against its political enemies is a matter of shameful record. Obama’s and the Leftists’ so-called “Resistance” to the Trump administration has developed the feel of a not so covert coup against President Trump.

    Americans are entitled to the full truth surrounding former President Obama’s use of nation-state resources for the purposes of political gain. Sycophantic rogue agents of the NSA, the CIA, the FBI and the Justice Department, all Democrat ideologues and communists, have apparently subverted the U.S. Constitution and spied on President Trump’s presidential campaign in a manner that was not approved by any curt, in order to derail his election and the Democratic process, leaking sensitive national security secrets along the way. And anyone involved, including Obama, must be prosecuted and placed behind bars.

  23. BOMBSHELL: CIA Whistleblower Leaked Proof Trump Under “Systematic Illegal” Surveillance Over Two Years Ago: FBI Sat On It
    ZeroPointNow’s picture
    by ZeroPointNow
    Mar 22, 2017 10:37 PM

    The same day House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes gave a press conference disclosing that President Trump had been under “incidental surveillance,” Attorney and FreedomWatch Chairman, Larry Klayman, sent a letter to the House Committee on Intelligence imploring them to pursue the claims and evidence presented under oath at a Washington DC FBI Field Office by his client – CIA / NSA Whistleblower Dennis Montgomery – who Klayman claims “holds the keys to disproving the false claims… …that there is no evidence that the president and his men were wiretapped”

    When Montgomery attempted to deliver this information through the appropriate channels two years ago, the former CIA and NSA contractor wasn’t given the time of day:

    [W]hen Montgomery came forward as a whistleblower to congressional intelligence committees and various other congressmen and senators, including Senator Charles Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who, like Comey, once had a reputation for integrity, he was “blown off;” no one wanted to even hear what he had to say.

    As a result, Montgomery went to attorney and FreedomWatch founder Larry Klayman – who then approached the FBI:

    Under grants of immunity, which I obtained through Assistant U.S. Attorney Deborah Curtis, Montgomery produced the hard drives and later was interviewed under oath in a secure room at the FBI Field Office in the District of Columbia. There he laid out how persons like then-businessman Donald Trump were illegally spied upon by Clapper, Brennan, and the spy agencies of the Obama administration.

    Montgomery left the NSA and CIA with 47 hard drives and over 600 million pages of information, much of which is classified, and sought to come forward legally as a whistleblower to appropriate government entities, including congressional intelligence committees, to expose that the spy agencies were engaged for years in systematic illegal surveillance on prominent Americans, including the chief justice of the Supreme Court, other justices, 156 judges, prominent businessmen such as Donald Trump, and even yours truly. Working side by side with Obama’s former Director of National Intelligence (DIA), James Clapper, and Obama’s former Director of the CIA, John Brennan, Montgomery witnessed “up close and personal” this “Orwellian Big Brother” intrusion on privacy, likely for potential coercion, blackmail or other nefarious purposes.

    He even claimed that these spy agencies had manipulated voting in Florida during the 2008 presidential election, which illegal tampering resulted in helping Obama to win the White House.

    Given the fact that the FBI had Montgomery’s testimony and evidence for over two years, Klayman traveled to Washington DC last Thursday to meet with Committee Chairman Devin Nunes in the hopes that he would ask FBI Director Comey why the FBI hadn’t pursued Montgomery’s evidence. When Klayman arrived to speak with Nunes, he was “blown off” and instead shared his information with committee attorney Allen R. Souza – who Klayman requested in turn brief Nunes on the situation.

    During my meeting with House Intelligence Committee counsel Allen R. Sousa I politely warned him that if Chairman Nunes, who himself had that same day undercut President Trump by also claiming that there is no evidence of surveillance by the Obama administration, I would go public with what would appear to be the House Intelligence Committee’s complicity in keeping the truth from the American people and allowing the FBI to continue its apparent cover-up of the Montgomery “investigation.”

    And, that is where it stands today. The big question: will House Intelligence Committee Chairman Nunes do his job and hold FBI Director Comey’s feet to the fire about the Montgomery investigation?

    Klayman has detailed all of this in a NewsMax article, followed up with an official letter to Chairman Nunes today, requesting that he question Comey on Montgomery’s evidence. Perhaps this explains Nunes’ impromptu press conference today admitting that Trump’s team was under “Incidental Surveillance” before making his way to the White House to discuss with the President.

    So – we know that evidence exists from a CIA / NSA contractor turned whistleblower, detailing a massive spy operation on 156 judges, the Supreme Court, and high profile Americans including Donald Trump. See the letter below:

  25. Former DOJ prosecutor Larry Klayman sent a letter telling Nunes that a CIA whistleblower had contacted him with 47 hard drives and 600 million images that PROVE Obama and Comey spied on Trump and many others! (See The Letter Below)

    Here is the letter Klayman sent to Chairman Nunes and the rest of the intelligence Committee. THIS IS HUGE!

  26. I believe whistleblower Montgomery originally came forward during a lawsuit by Klayman involving questions about Obama’s identity, Joe Arpaio, and Mike Zullo. When Montgomery showed judges were all wiretapped the case took a different direction.

    I hope Klayman continues to educate Nunes as to the usurper’s ID issues.

  27. Bob Strauss……….
    ………..and the garrote is now about Soetoro’s neck! Perhaps he will soon discover the BITE of the BIGHT.

  28. Bob Strauss………
    …………do you remember the words of Mr. Bongino the ex secret service agent who said that few if any people on earth outside of the government know just how badly, and to what extent our government is corrupted. He stated it is BEYOND IMAGINATION…….and the TAP ROOT is NSA. The reality is 300million people are at the mercy of a gang of THUGS who own every aspect of the lives of the people. The federal government has become a dictatorship without a human dictator………but I believe that soon one of the gang members will stand up and scream that he is now the supreme ruler of America, and he will brush President Trump aside like a speck of dust. This is happening at a WORLD LEVEL, and it is now clear that PUSH HAS MORPHED INTO SHOVE. To compound this a couple of the world’s billionaires, and at least one trillionaire have already stated where they stand………..which is against Trump. The combined net worth of these pieces of human garbage is in excess of quadrillions of dollars……one of these people is Bill Gates. He has both financially, and verbally supported Soetoro, and subsequently Mzzzzzzzzzzzz.PIGGY. He along with Mr. Soros have spent millions in the failed effort to elect THEIR CHOSEN figurehead. Now they are on the warpath, and none of them give a damn how many people end up dead as a result. Sadly our young people haven’t a clue about what is going on……..just so long as they have their DRUGS, DEVIANT SEX, PIZZA, BEER, and HANGING OUT, nothing else matters to them. I believe ALL AMERICANS ARE NOW TEETERING AT THE BRINK OF THE ABYSS, AND IT IS POSSIBLE THAT EVEN PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ALTER THE OUTCOME. ONLY A CIVIL WAR HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BRING ALL OF THE UPPER CRUST BASTARDS TO CRIMINAL JUSTICE…………WHERE THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN LONG AGO. NOW WE KNOW WHAT PEOPLE BECOME AFTER THEY REACH BILLIONAIRE STATUS. MOST OF THEM THINK ONLY OF THEMSELVES. PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS CHOSEN TO GIVE UP WHAT HE SPENT HIS LIFE BUILDING………..FOR THE PRIVILEGE TO BE POTUS…………BUT IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT THERE WILL BE UNRELENTING WAR EVERY STEP OF THE WAY FOR HIM. PRESIDENT TRUMP MUST PREVAIL OTHERWISE THE WAR AGAINST THE EXTREMELY RICH BASTARDS WILL BE LOST. HE IS NOT GOING TO HAVE MUCH HELP FROM HIS OWN PARTY EITHER. THEY HAVE BECOME A PACK OF WHINING, HAND WRINGING, CRINGING COWARDS. ASIDE FROM A FEW IT IS DOUBTFUL IF THEIR MORE THAN A FEW PAIRS OF GONADS AMONG ALL OF THEM.

    …….plenty of evidence floating around which ties some GOP members into the present mess as well. Ironically we can thank Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Waters for bragging about the level of Soetoro’s knowledge of a lot of people. I believe that her need to brag threw gasoline on the fire…………but now it is time to SUBPOENA HER and put her under oath as to how she knew this.

  30. Potential ‘smoking gun’ showing Obama administration spied on Trump team, source says

    By James Rosen Published March 23, 2017

    Nunes: Surveillance reports I’ve seen are ‘concerning’

    Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week, a source told Fox News.

    Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President Trump accused his predecessor of having wiretapped him in a series of now-infamous tweets posted on March 4.

    The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump, according to sources.

    The key to that conclusion is the unmasking of selected U.S. persons whose names appeared in the intelligence, the sources said, adding that the paper trail leaves no other plausible purpose for the unmasking other than to damage the incoming Trump administration.

    The FBI hasn’t been responsive to the House Intelligence Committee’s request for documents, but the National Security Agency is expected to produce documents to the committee by Friday. The NSA document production is expected to produce more intelligence than Nunes has so far seen or described – including what one source described as a potential “smoking gun” establishing the spying.

    Some time will be needed to properly assess the materials, with the likely result being that congressional investigators and attorneys won’t have a solid handle on the contents of the documents – and their implications – until next week.

    Because Nunes’s intelligence came from multiple sources during a span of several weeks, and he has not shared the actual materials with his committee colleagues, he will be the only member of the panel in a position to know whether the NSA has turned over some or all of the intelligence he is citing. However, Fox News was told Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., had been briefed on the basic contents of the intelligence described by Nunes.

    CIA Director Mike Pompeo is also sympathetic to the effort to determine, with documentary evidence, the extent of any alleged Obama administration spying on the Trump team, sources said.

    At a dramatic Wednesday news conference, Nunes claimed to have seen evidence that members of the Trump transition team, possibly including the president-elect, were subjected to “incidental surveillance” collection that Nunes characterized as legal but troubling.

    “What I’ve read bothers me,” he told reporters, “and I think it should bother the president himself, and his team because I think some of it seems to be inappropriate.”

    Schiff blasted Nunes for not coming first to the Intelligence Committee with the information.

    “If accurate, this information should have been shared with members of the committee, but it has not been,” Schiff said in a Wednesday statement.

  31. House’s Devin Nunes in Obama’s ‘Deep State’ crosshairs

    By Monica Showalter

    Democrats and jealous losers like Senator John McCain have ganged up on House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes for telling the truth about President Trump’s personal email being illegally spied upon and read by someone whose reach may have gone as far as President Obama. In fact, it might have been Obama himself.

    REPORTER: “Can you rule out the possibility that senior Obama Administration officials were involved in this?”
    NUNES: “No, I cannot.”

    It’s a disgusting specter because they were the ones who made such a stink about Trump’s supposed involvement with the Russians and demanded that Nunes get “to the bottom of it.” When Nunes accommodated them, they screeched like chickens and cried “fowl” because they didn’t like the answer. They didn’t like where the facts led.

  32. Bob Strauss…….
    Good morning Bob. With respect to your post I couldn’t agree more. I am praying that very soon now the garrote will be placed around the necks of the criminal bastards in our government, and drawn tight. They will scream their innocence, and whine that somebody else forced them to do the criminal act, but the facts will tell the truth. Now it is time for them to PAY THE PRICE.

  33. AND……..
    ………Tahiti is under French rule…… is doubtful that so long as Soetoro is in French controlled geography he would not be extradited. When he returns to America it is time for his arrest, and prosecution. The buck stops at Soetoro’s door. Arpaio’s investigation of Soetoro uncovered some really serious stuff, and there is a dire need to bring all involved to justice. Arpaio himself has been illegally prosecuted for having done his job. Time for the criminal bastards behind the sham charges against him to themselves be prosecuted, and imprisoned.

  34. AS for the Arizona official he is a disgrace to his own party. He is getting old now ,and any day he could step off the edge of the earth…….I have my doubts if anyone would even care, or feel saddened. He has become a turncoat………a turncoat is a SNEAK. Nothing worse than a sneak!

  35. I HASTEN TO ADD………
    …………I believe that the California NUT CASE, Mr.Jiff possibly was behind some of the unmasking, and his SLIMEY BEHAVIOR screams to be heard by all. He has tried to make it look like NUNES is the culprit when in reality it is he himself. Mr, Jiff is also the Benghazzi LIAR.

  36. Was Obama an “Illegitimate” President?


    by Sharon Rondeau

    (Mar. 22, 2017) — In a letter dated March 21, 2017, Attorney Larry Klayman told U.S. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes that an NSA “whistleblower” reported to him that the Florida vote tally in the 2008 presidential election was tampered with in order to “help” Barack Hussein Obama win that state’s electoral votes and by extension, “the White House.”

    12 Pieces Of Proof: The MSM Knew Obama Spied On Trump and LIED To Cover It Up

    John Nolte
    March 24, 2017

    What I am about to present to you is what really happened. All the proof is linked below, but what I’m about to do is what I call “Revealing the Matrix,” showing you the truth backed by incontrovertible fact and the media’s own words. Not my words. Not President Trump’s words. The media’s words.

    We’re gunna cut through all the code, all the spin, all the fog, all the lies, and all the Coordinated Narratives used by our media to obscure Truth.

    And we will begin with the beguine …

    Our national media has known for months that the Obama administration spied on Team Trump. This was not only common knowledge within the media community, it was no secret. In fact, as you’ll see below, for two big reasons, the media was overjoyed that this spying had occurred: (1) they got scoops damaging to Trump, and (2) in their provincial and cultish minds, the very fact that the oh-so pure Obama administration felt the need to spy, could only mean Trump was in bed with Putin.

    In fact, the media was actually having a big public party using Obama’s spying. Hoo-hah here’s a scoop! Whee-hee Flynn said this! Woo-woo palace intrigue! Ha-haaah here’s what so-and-so said! Tra-la-la here’s what so-and-so did!

    And then on March 4, in a series of tweets that had the exact same effect as political nukes, Trump himself confirmed what the media had already told us, that the Obama administration had spied on him and his team. Trump’s brilliance was focusing on the sleazy and illegal act of the actual spying. And this is when the media realized that all their ha-has and tra-la-las were about to backfire. Their Precious Barry was now at risk, and so the shameless cover up and lying began …

    Suddenly, right around 8 a.m. on Saturday, March 4, the conventional wisdom and public knowledge that the Obama administration had spied on Trump, was surrounded by the media’s semantic wagons which were manned by lying journalists armed with hair-splitting. I don’t want to go through all that again, so you can read why Trump told the 100% truth in the first section of this piece. The bottom line, though, is this …

    Trump accused Obama of spying on him.

    Obama did spy on Trump.

    The media knew Obama spied on Trump.

    The media lied and covered up the fact that Obama spied on Trump.

    We know this with absolute certainty because the media itself told us so. And here is all the proof you will ever need to make that case … [emphasis mine throughout]

    1. Heat Street – November 7, 2016

    EXCLUSIVE: FBI ‘Granted FISA Warrant’ Covering Trump Camp’s Ties To Russia

    Two separate sources with links to the counter-intelligence community have confirmed to Heat Street that the FBI sought, and was granted, a FISA court warrant in October, giving counter-intelligence permission to examine the activities of ‘U.S. persons’ in Donald Trump’s campaign with ties to Russia.

    So let’s stop for a moment to make a couple of things clear. The FBI reports to the Department of Justice, which at the time was run by Obama’s highly politicized Attorney General, Loretta Lynch. The author of this piece, Louise Mensch, despises Trump, and if you’ll look at the publication date, she dropped this supposed bombshell the night before the election, and did so for reasons I should not have to explain.

    You are now asking yourselves: Who the hell is Heat Street and how does this prove anything? That’s a fair question, let me answer it this way: As you’ll see below, this report of the Obama administration asking for and receiving a surveillance warrant to monitor Team Trump is confirmed by a number of other MSM sources.

    Moreover, no less than The New York Times re-published this information as recently as last weekend.

    2. The Guardian – January 11, 2017

    The Guardian has learned that the FBI applied for a warrant from the foreign intelligence surveillance (Fisa) court over the summer in order to monitor four members of the Trump team suspected of irregular contacts with Russian officials. The Fisa court turned down the application asking FBI counter-intelligence investigators to narrow its focus. According to one report, the FBI was finally granted a warrant in October, but that has not been confirmed, and it is not clear whether any warrant led to a full investigation.

    The left-wing Guardian not only reported that the Obama administration sought a surveillance warrant, but that it was specifically requested to “monitor four members of the Trump team.” This was the summer request, as reported by Heat Street, that was turned down.

    3. The New York Times – January 12, 2017

    In its final days, the Obama administration has 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 rules significantly relax longstanding limits on what the N.S.A. may do with the information gathered by its most powerful surveillance operations, which are largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws. These include collecting satellite transmissions, phone calls and emails that cross network switches abroad, and messages between people abroad that cross domestic network switches.

    The change means that far more officials will be searching through raw data. Essentially, the government is reducing the risk that the N.S.A. will fail to recognize that a piece of information would be valuable to another agency, but increasing the risk that officials will see private information about innocent people.

    This is the most important piece of the puzzle, because it explains how the media was getting all of its scoops via leaks via surveillance. Moreover, it explains how the media knew it was getting all these scoops via leaks via surveillance.

    If you are not the target of the surveillance, if your name is not on the FISA warrant, if you are “incidentally” picked up in surveillance, in order to protect your privacy as guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment, the government is required by law to mask or blackout your name in its reports.

    Just before running out the door, the Obama administration unilaterally changed the law in a way that allowed surveillance intel to be disseminated throughout all 16 national security agencies “before applying privacy protections” – and this includes surveillance picked up by the NSA, which is “largely unregulated by American wiretapping laws[.]”

    Let me explain what happens …

    Hoo-ha, lookie-lookie at what we “incidentally” picked up at Trump Tower. But thanks to Precious Barry, I don’t have to black out this “incidental juiciness” before I send it out to 16 whole agencies. Golly gee, now that we can spread this far and wide without masking all the “incidental juiciness,” I sure hope it doesn’t end up in the hands of someone Obama appointee who likes all those tweets Jake Tapper sends out kissing the Intelligence Community’s ass.

    Hey, if anyone has another theory for why the Obama administration would make such a change just as the Trump administration was coming in, I’m all ears.

    But you don’t. Because there is no other theory. The only reason to authorize the spreading far and wide of these “incidental” names is to better the chances of Trump-related leaks to the hostile media.

    Not to get too far off track, but welcome to a banana republic where secret and unlawful surveillance is leaked to the public for partisan purposes.

    4. The BBC – January 17, 2017

    Lawyers from the National Security Division in the Department of Justice then drew up an application. They took it to the secret US court that deals with intelligence, the Fisa court, named after the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. They wanted permission to intercept the electronic records from two Russian banks.

    Their first application, in June, was rejected outright by the judge. They returned with a more narrowly drawn order in July and were rejected again. Finally, before a new judge, the order was granted, on 15 October, three weeks before election day.

    Neither Mr Trump nor his associates are named in the Fisa order, which would only cover foreign citizens or foreign entities – in this case the Russian banks. But ultimately, the investigation is looking for transfers of money from Russia to the United States, each one, if proved, a felony offence.

    A lawyer – outside the Department of Justice but familiar with the case – told me that three of Mr. Trump’s associates were the subject of the inquiry. “But it’s clear this is about Trump,” he said.

    The left-wing BBC not only backs up the Heat Street reporting but publishes the news that “three of Trump’s associates” were part of this surveillance operation.

    5. McClatchy – January 18, 2017

    The agencies involved in the inquiry are the FBI, the CIA, the National Security Agency, the Justice Department, the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and representatives of the director of national intelligence, the sources said. …

    A key mission of the six-agency group has been to examine who financed the email hacks of the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. The London-based transparency group WikiLeaks released the emails last summer and in October.

    The working group is scrutinizing the activities of a few Americans who were affiliated with Trump’s campaign or his business empire and of multiple individuals from Russia and other former Soviet nations.

    The BBC reported that the FBI had obtained a warrant on Oct. 15 from the highly secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court allowing investigators access to bank records and other documents about potential payments and money transfers related to Russia. One of McClatchy’s sources confirmed the report.

    Surveillance warrant.

    “Americans associated with Trump[.]”

    Even after eight years of Obama, two plus two still equals four.

    6. The New York Times – Jan 19, 2017

    Print headline: “Wiretapped Data Used In Inquiry of Trump Aides” …

    The F.B.I. is leading the investigations, aided by the National Security Agency, the C.I.A. and the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in recent weeks but have found no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, the officials said. One official said intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House.

    The Obama administration is investigating Trump.

    The White House is looking at intelligence based on “wiretapped communications.”

    This is The New York Times, y’all. This is the secular media’s Bible, their Gaia, their Sacrament of all that is Right and True, and that Bible laid it all out in the exact same language used by Trump.

    7. The Washington Post – February 9, 2017

    Headline: “National security adviser Flynn discussed sanctions with Russian ambassador, despite denials, officials say”

    National security adviser Michael Flynn privately discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia with that country’s ambassador to the United States during the month before President Trump took office, contrary to public assertions by Trump officials, current and former U.S. officials said.

    Flynn’s communications with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak were interpreted by some senior U.S. officials as an inappropriate and potentially illegal signal to the Kremlin that it could expect a reprieve from sanctions that were being imposed by the Obama administration in late December to punish Russia for its alleged interference in the 2016 election.

    The Washington Post says it loud and says it proud that the month prior to Trump taking office, the Obama administration listened to Flynn’s phone calls. It should be added that the report also says that Flynn said nothing unethical or wrong.

    Maybe the FISA warrant targeted the Russian ambassador. Nevertheless, once Flynn’s name was unmasked, disseminated and publicly leaked, at least two felonies had occurred – and incidental (yeah, right) or not, once all that happened, what the Obama administration did is called SPYING.

    Let’s also add to the mix the juicy fact that several members of the Obama administration had access to this unmasked information about Flynn.

    8. CNN – February 14, 2017

    Washington Post columnist David Ignatius cited a single “senior U.S. government official” while reporting that “Flynn phoned Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak several times on Dec. 29, the day the Obama administration announced the expulsion of 35 Russian officials as well as other measures in retaliation for the hacking.” …

    Last Thursday, The Post cited “nine current and former officials” in a story headlined “National security adviser Flynn discussed sanctions with Russian ambassador, despite denials, officials say.”

    The New York Times quickly matched the story and said there was a transcript of the discussions.

    The chronology suggests that some officials in the government sought to alert the public to Flynn’s contacts by leaking to the press.

    This is CNN, the same network that for three weeks now has smeared Trump as a liar over his claim Obama spied on him – and yet, this very same CNN is seen here celebrating the fact that Mike Flynn was taken down by – read closely now – the Obama administration intercepting Flynn’s phone calls, including a possible TRANSCRIPT.

    Riddle me this, CNN: How did the Obama administration get a transcript of a phone call from a member of Trump’s team, a team that was working out of Trump Tower? I mean, other than a wiretap?

    Two more questions: Was Flynn’s name on the FISA warrant? And if not, why didn’t the Obama administration mask his name, as required by law?

    Either way, what we have here is CNN not only reporting that the Obama administration spied on Team Trump, but GLOATING over the fact that Obama’s spying resulted in a scalp.

    And then, just three weeks later, CNN would call Trump a liar for believing what? … CNN’s reporting!

    9. NBC News – February 10, 2017

    A U.S. intelligence official briefed on the matter confirmed to NBC News that National Security Advisor Mike Flynn discussed sanctions with the Russian ambassador before Flynn took office[.]

    The official said he was told there was no quid pro quo and that there has been no finding inside the government that Flynn did anything illegal. …

    Flynn spoke to Kislyak on Dec. 29, the same day the sanctions were announced.

    NBC News obviously knew the Obama administration was listening to Team Trump phone calls.

    10. The Associated Press – February 13, 2017

    Two people familiar with the situation say the Justice Department warned the Trump administration about Michael Flynn’s contacts with Russia.

    One of the people says the Justice Department told the administration there was a discrepancy between what the White House was saying publicly about Flynn’s contacts and the facts of what occurred.

    The Associated Press knew the Obama administration had listened to Flynn’s calls.

    11. ABC News – February 13, 2017

    Embattled National Security Adviser Michael Flynn called Vice President Mike Pence Friday to apologize for misleading him about a conversation with the Russian ambassador to the United States, according to a senior White House official.

    ABC News knew the Obama administration had listened to Flynn’s calls.

    12. CBS News – February 10, 2017

    Investigators believe that President Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, privately discussed U.S. sanctions against Russia in a phone call with a Russian official, law enforcement sources told CBS News on Friday.

    Multiple sources told CBS News’ Jeff Pegues and Pat Milton that the conversation occurred before Mr. Trump took office and, if true, could be a violation of protocol and could be viewed as a violation of the law.

    CBS News knew the Obama administrations had listened to Flynn’s calls.


    I could go on and on – so I hope I’ve made my point and closed my case. The evidence is so overwhelming that by now your eyes are probably glazed over and you mind is screaming Enough already!


    Way back in January, Heat Street, The Guardian, The BBC, and McClatchy all confirmed that he Obama administration sought and/or received surveillance warrants aimed at Team Trump.

    Way back in January, The New York Times reported that the Obama White House was looking at wiretap intelligence related to Trump.

    Way back in February, The Washington Post, CNN, the Associated Press, NBC News, CBS News, and ABC News all gleefully reported on private telephone calls that were surveilled by the Obama administration and then illegally made public to the media.

    Then, In March, just weeks after all of this reporting on the awesomeness of Obama-era surveillance warrants and intercepted phone calls …

    Despite their own knowledge, despite their own reporting, despite the words they publicly printed and the words they publicly spoke, every single one of these news outlets declared Trump a liar for the sin of what …?

    For the sin of believing the same people now smearing him as a liar.

  43. Bob Strauss………
    ……….with respect to the video of Mzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Waters running her mouth………I believe that she had no idea that she was confirming to the world that electronic eavesdropping(surveillance) was going on against the Trump campaign. Her need to BRAG about it will most likely be used against Soetoro. I too posted the preliminary comment last week. I had obtained it from Comcast news. They presented the same video which I watched…….and I knew instantly that she had blown Soetoro’s cover.

  44. AND NOW…….
    …….the infamous Bernie Sanders has become a financial GENIUS. He is now screaming that MEDICARE should be for everyone …..young and old alike! Apparently he isn’t aware that Medicare is for people 65 and older……..BUT NOT for people of all ages. At present Medicare is part of the Social Security payroll tax which is now over 6.0%, but if Bernie Sanders has his way the SS tax will probably have to go to at least 50%. So if it is for all so will be Social Security. In short a person will be able to draw Social Security money from the 1st day they arrive on earth…….and they won’t have to work a day in their lives, or pay a penny into the system. So if wage earners are to support non citizen BASTARDS who refuse to work it will be the end of the American middle class. So I am wondering who he thinks is going to pay the tab. WHAT A HALFWIT. WOW 300,000,000+ another 20 million so called refugees, all drawing Social Security, and Medicare. Maybe he is planning on subsidizing the government from his own personal money. Already the illegal REFUGEES are each given $1200.00 a month from the general fund………now they will be able to compound that figure with Social Security, and Medicare. Any person who thinks in such terms HAS to be a HALFWIT. The national debt would soar to 500 trillion in a couple of years. What a MORON. Of course he does advocate a SOCIALIST GOVERNMENT ANYWAY. The nosepicking, stinking a$$ed, drug headed punks LOVE HIM……….which reveals their level of intelligence as well. With Bernie Sanders in command the few remaining American companies would flee the US. What Bernie Sanders also doesn’t realise is that if all business leaves the US the Federal Government would become a useless entity. When the money is so diluted that a truck load of dollars won’t buy a loaf of bread. Ask a German what it is like to have nothing but bombed out cities, and a failed economic system………as was the case immediately after WW1, and again after WW2. YEP the government outlay is UNSUSTAINABLE AS IT STANDS TODAY, so compounding the outlay with MEDICARE, and SOCIAL SECURITY, and the entire system will be bankrupt in a very short period of time. About 50% of todays retirees depend upon their Social Security money to live from month to month. When it is gone there will be hell on earth………..and possibly a huge number of slimy politicians dangling in a garrote from live oak trees.
