Elder Patriot – After Barack Obama became president Rush Limbaugh warned that it would take decades to undo the damage that the ideologically driven Illinois Marxist would do to our democracy.
At the time Rush came under an avalanche of criticism for making that observation. Sadly he was right.
True to Obama’s political roots, the president spent his eight years in office weaponizing our intelligence agencies to be used against his political opponents in a fashion that would make the East German Stasi blush.
Rand Paul was the most recent conservative to realize that his private communications with his campaign manager had been unlawfully accessed. When he went public with his assertions Maria Bartiromo asked Judge Andrew Napolitano to discuss the issue on her morning show.
Napolitano told her audience that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia “told me he often thought the court was under surveillance. And he told me that probably four or five years ago.
If true, it would go a long ways towards explaining the unexplainable position of Chief Justice John Roberts who violated every judicial canon by rewriting the Obamacare mandate so that it somehow became a tax rather than a penalty.
What incriminating information did Obama glean from the intelligence agencies’ unlawful surveillance of Chief Justice Roberts to extort the otherwise conservative justice’s vote?
Did Obama find Justice Scalia too much of a strident originalist and too “clean” to be extorted? Does this explain the unexplainable circumstances surrounding Scalia’s death?
Obama even used a falsified dossier to convince a FISA court to grant his DOJ the right to conduct surveillance on Donald Trump in an effort to tilt the election to Hillary Clinton.
When asked about the totality of the Obama administration’s spying Napolitano bluntly stated even collecting private data without accessing it is illegal but emphasized that, “the use of intelligence data for political purposes is a felony.”
But, Obama didn’t stop there as this NY Times account of the last days of the Obama administration remembers:
“In the Obama administration’s last days, some White House officials scrambled to spread information about Russian efforts to undermine the presidential election — and about possible contacts between associates of President-elect Donald J. Trump and Russians — across the government. Former American officials say they had two aims: to ensure that such meddling isn’t duplicated in future American or European elections, and to leave a clear trail of intelligence for government investigators.”
As the FBI has been forced to admit that “clear trail” was based on lies.
Bill Clinton’s departing staff stole the “W” off the keyboards in the White House. Obama did everything he could to steal our freedom and both parties did nothing to stop him.
Rush was right.
