When Donald Trump made the claim earlier this month that President Obama was wiretapping his offices during the election, the liberal media flipped out.
Despite months of them claiming that Trump was communicating with Russia, based on details uncovered by wiretapping, they were now quick to denying any such intel had been gathered.
You see, the liberal media is two-faced. They are no longer in the business of reporting the facts, in the hopes that you will form your own opinion. They are in the business of presenting a distorted, dishonest world view, in order to manipulate you into believing what they want you to believe. They are willing to twist information, obscure facts, even invent stories if need be.
So while they were pushing the idea that Russia was working with Trump to “hack” the election, they made all kinds of claims about wiretapping and intel. Yet when President Trump makes the statement that Obama was wrongfully spying on him, the media suddenly drops the whole idea.
Yet we know that under Obama, the NSA was gathering information about every Americans’ conversations. They were conducting mass spying on U.S. citizens, without warrants, violating the Fourth Amendment.
So it’s not so hard to believe Obama directed resources to wiretap or monitor Trump’s communications.
Now we are learning that this is nothing new; the government has been monitoring Trump illegally, for quite some time.
From Info Wars:
Infowars.com have obtained credible information from law enforcement sources regarding individual records of U.S. citizens under National Security Agency (NSA) electronic surveillance in the years 2004 through 2010 – a database that suggests both Donald J. Trump and Alex Jones were under illegal, unauthorized government monitoring during those years…
Michael Zullo, formerly the commander and chief investigator of the Cold Case Posse (CCP), a special investigative group created in 2006 in the office of Joseph M. Arpaio, formerly the sheriff in Maricopa County, an Arizona State Certified Law Enforcement Agency, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, provided sections of the database to Infowars.com.
The electronic surveillance database, provided to Zullo by a whistleblower in 2013, was apparently created by the NSA as part of the NSA’s illegal and unconstitutional Project Dragnet electronic surveillance of U.S. citizens, first revealed by news reports published in 2005, as further documented by the revelations of whistleblower Edward Snowden in 2013.
The database reveals entries that show the NSA was conducting surveillance of Donald Trump, listing his addresses and locations in New York, Florida, and other parts of the country. Trump employees are mentioned, including dates and their addresses and phone numbers. They were under phone surveillance as well as financial surveillance.
Why would the government be monitoring Trump and his people for so long? As an influential and respected figure in this country and around the world, perhaps the government wanted to keep tabs on him. Perhaps they were concerned he would be a target for terrorism, or perhaps his business was being used for nefarious purposes.
But the fact remains that this kind of monitoring, over such a long period of time without judicial oversight and warrants, is un-Constitutional. Trump and his companies should not have been a target of any kind of secret, dragnet surveillance program.
Yet if this is what the government was doing years ago, before he ran for president, imagine what Obama was doing only a few months ago?
