Besieged I tell you — besieged!

Matt Margolis: It’s Time for the Left to Stop Pretending Obama Was Scandal-Free – “How many scandals will it take for the left to admit that Barack Obama had the most corrupt presidency in U.S. history?

Stephen Kruiser: The Morning Briefing: ‘OBAMAGATE!’ Monday Edition – “Obama is back in the daily news cycle, and this is probably the first time that the malignant narcissist isn’t happy about it.” Defending Biden against mounting evidence is one thing. Now it’s Obama and the evidence is in congressional hearing testimony and other documentation regarding the FBI, the DOJ, and the FISA courts. Then there’s the pandemic FUD mongering and economic warfare at the expense of the Bill of Rights to defend as well.

“As evidence mounts that the upper echelons of the Obama administration — include Obama himself — spent their final days spying and phone-tapping in an effort to ruin Michael Flynn and poison the entire Trump administration, the president and his confidantes are turning up the heat.

Those of us here on the sane side of things know that the Obama administration was never sans the blemish of scandal as the stories have been told. They benefited from a press corps that spent eight years spraining their necks looking the other way.

The evidence that has emerged in the past week can’t be swept under the rug, especially with President Trump in command of the biggest bully pulpit on Earth.

Daniel Greenfield: Obamagate: President Trump Goes After Obama – “The treasonous investigators and their instigator become the investigated.” … “One man, not some nebulous organization or unaccountable bureaucracy, pushed the lever and decided to use the machinery of law enforcement and intelligence agencies to suppress the political opposition.

“Investigations start by exposing, breaking down and then flipping the stooges, before working their way up the ladder to the bosses who gave the orders, and then the man at the top. The investigation formerly known as Spygate has been burning its way through the titular spies who did the dirty work.

Steele has since testified that he not only knew that Hillary Clinton was in the loop, but that National Security Advisor Susan Rice had been briefed. Obamagate had linked together the figures empowered to conduct surveillance of political opponents with political figures in the White House. That’s how covert spying operations like Watergate work. The DOJ is meant to serve as a buffer against abuses like these.

As I wrote three years ago, “Once Obama and his allies launched their domestic surveillance operation, they crossed the Rubicon. And there was no way back. They had to destroy President Trump or risk going to jail. The more crimes they committed by spying on the opposition, the more urgently they needed to bring down Trump. The consequences of each crime that they had committed spurred them on to commit worse crimes to save themselves from going to jail.”

The tables are turning. And the question now becomes, will middle rank ex-feds be willing to go to jail to protect their bosses, will those bosses be willing to go to jail to protect cabinet members, and will they all be willing to go to jail to protect Barry? If Biden loses, so does the Obama Alumni Association.

Obamagate is not just the reckoning the nation needs: it’s the reckoning that the rule of law deserves.

I&I Editorial: Media Find In Coronavirus A Crisis They Can’t Waste – “We can’t be the only ones who sense the glee with which the news about the body count, the Democrats’ wailing over the president’s handling of the crisis, and the “new normal” are delivered across our screens.” … “The coronavirus coverage goes beyond the “if it bleeds it leads” tenet of sensationalized media coverage. It’s a handy means for them to extend the cultural and political divides that have made the 50 states less united than they have been in any of our lifetimes.

“If you doubt the power of the press, recognize that Gov. Ron DeSantis handled COVID-19 in Florida in excellent fashion, while Gov. Andrew Cuomo handled it nearly as badly as humanly possible, yet DeSantis has dropped in polls and Cuomo is at the height of popularity,” talk radio show host Ben Shapiro tweeted last week.

Choose any issue, and there’s a media bias editorial waiting to be written. The legacy press is simply the Democratic Party’s Department of Propaganda

Tyler Durden: Trump Furious After NBC Apologizes For Chuck Todd’s Propaganda Edit Of Barr Interview – yeah, OK, another of those “pounce” “seize” overblown headlines, but … “Todd literally stole Barr’s line about ‘upholding the rule of law’ and flipped it around in a case of blatant propaganda. … Greg Price of the Daily Caller calls out the “blatantly dishonest” reporting by Todd.

Lee Smith: Adam Schiff lied about the Trump investigation — and the media let him – “Last week, Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell forced Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff’s hand. … They show exactly what you’d expect them to show: None of the former Obama administration officials who took to the airwaves immediately after Trump’s election to claim collusion had any evidence of it. … But what makes the transcripts significant is not what’s contained in them. Rather, it’s what they represent.

“After Mueller filed his report last spring, CNN’s Jake Tapper said that “I don’t know anybody who got anything wrong.” Don’t expect anyone in the mainstream media to admit gross journalistic malpractice this time either. The tragic fact is that once-prestigious press organizations, including CNN as well as MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post, weren’t fooled by the collusion hoax. They were an essential part of it.

Daily Caller News Foundation: Supreme Court rules encouraging illegal aliens to remain in U.S. is a crime – “unanimously upheld a federal statute that forbids encouraging illegal aliens to remain in the U.S. unlawfully in a decision Thursday.” … “The ruling by the nation’s highest court Thursday upholds the law. … The Supreme Court not only vacated the appeals court’s decision but also criticized the judges for “drastically” straying from judicial norms. … Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a liberal stalwart of the bench, wrote the high court’s opinion. … The decision brings to a close a court battle that lasted roughly 10 years.
